Twilight fans, get excited……to celebrate the release of “Breaking Dawn-Part1”, the first three “Twilight” movies are going to hit theaters again in November…but each one will play for just one night. And they’re all playing on Tuesdays. “Twilight” will play on November 1st….”New Moon” follows November 8th…and “Eclipse” opens November 15th. ("Breaking Dawn-Part 1” opens three days later, on Friday, November 18th.) Each showing will take place at 7:30pm and will include cast introductions, interviewers and behind-the-scenes content. This is a great way to catch up on the movies if you haven’t seen them and really want to. Or if you’re a huge Twilight fan, it’s another reason for you to go crazy!
Remember Lee Dewyze? No? He won the ninth season of “American Idol” by defeating his runner-up Crystal Bowersox. Well……Lee has already been dropped from his label, RCA Records. His debut album, “Live It Up”, has sold 168,000 copies since it came out last fall, but apparently that wasn’t enough to hold RCA’s interest. But don’t worry about Lee, his rep says, quote, “he is in a good place right now..”
There are some reports going around claiming that guitarist Brian May has asked Lady Gaga to become the permanent new singer for….get this……QUEEN! Brian tells a tabloid, quote, “We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly. We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing and fronting the band with. Brian performed with Gaga at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. Clearly Brian seems to want to collaborate with Lady Gaga in the future, and she might be down for that. After all, the inspiration for the name “Lady Gaga” came from the QUEEN song “Radio Ga Ga.”
Elisabetta Canalis, you know, George Clooney’s ex, is supposedly now dating Mehcad Brooks….AKA Benedict “Eggs” Talley, from True Blood. You may not think that he could be an upgrade from the Cloons, but when you see a picture of this delicious man AND his 6 pack…you’ll disagree. WOWZERS!! Go Elisabetta!
It’s been all over the news since Wednesday, but in case you didn’t hear, Steve Jobs, Apple founder and former CEO, died yesterday. He was 56. Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause. Although we knew he battled pancreatic cancer for a long time. He died peacefully, according to a statement from family members. He and a high school friend started Apple in his parents’ garage in 1976. He also founded Pixar. He was an innovative genius who changed the lives of many people. He will be missed.
The network that was once home to Will Smith and LL Cool J is hoping to turn Snoop Dogg into a comedy lead as well. NBC has bought a series from Snoop. He will produce AND star in the new sitcom. It seems like Snoop has been bit by the acting bug lately, he was just recently cast in the title role for the movie “The Legend of Fillmore Slim.” In the new sitcom, he’s the father of a group of unruly kids. He and his real-life family starred in the E! series “Snoop Doggs Fatherhood.”The Black Eyed Peas have bowed out of the Michael Jackson tribute show that’s going down Saturday in Wales at the Cardiff’s Millenium Stadium. Still scheduled to perform are Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Alien Ant Farm, Jennifer Hudson, Gladys Knight and Beyonce’, who’ll appear via satellite. Do you think that’s really a tribute show??
Rihanna’s “We Found Love” has just entered the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It’s her 20th song to make it into the Top 10…and she achieved that feat faster than any other solo artist. She did it in six years and four months, which beats MADONNA, who did it in six years and nine months. Go Rihanna!
Justin Bieber’s Christmas album “Under The Mistletoe” will include a duet with Mariah Carey. They’re singing a new version of her holiday song “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Mariah posted a video on her Twitter confirming this. Do you think this song should go untouched or do you think this is a good idea?
Apparently round 2 didn’t work either for Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio because they broke up, again. A source says, quote, “It’s amicable. They’re friends.” They supposedly just got tired of doing the long distance thing. They’d been together since May, and broke up one other time over the summer. Here’s the juicy part….Blake has been spending some time with her “Green Lantern” costar Ryan Reynolds. On Thursday night, they caught a concert in NYC along with Ryan’s ex, Scarlett Johansson. On Friday, Ryan and Blake took a train from NY to Boston…then had dinner together at a sushi restaurant. Why does Ryan Reynolds seem like the “go to” guy for girls when they just get out of a break up??
Two famous Jennifers are talking marriage, one is good, one…not so good. Jennifer Hudson’s marriage to WWE superstar David Otunga (or you may remember him as “Punk” from the “I Love New York” reality show), is on hold because he won’t sign a prenup! Say what!? He may be a pro wrestler, but he’s also a law school grad...he’s not stupid. And then Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are reportedly set to tie the knot in a private Mexican ceremony in January. The couple has invited just 30 guests to the low-key ceremony at Joe Francis’s estate in Cabo San Lucas. Her agent, Kevin Huvane, is an ordained minister.
I have details on a release date and title for Rihanna’s next album. It’s called “Talk The Talk”, and it’ll come out on November 21st. It’ll be her sixth album in seven years. Her last album “Loud” came out November 10th of last year. Mark your calendars!
Last nights elimination on Dancing With The Stars was a complete shocker, as usual. It came down to Hope Solo and Kristin Cavalarri. In the end, the Hills star got the boot. Kristin had to pack her bags and yes, Chaz Bono will live to see another week. Next week’s performance theme is “movie scores.”
WELLLLL, get THIS....there’s a reported Tupac SEX TAPE! Tupac was murdered back in 1996…..long before it was easy to make a sex tape mistake. They say the video is five minutes long….and features Tupac receiving a “favor” from a groupie during a house party. He’s seen singing, dancing and holding a cocktail. What’s awkward AND funny is that Money B from Digital Underground is in the video too, just hanging out. He actually walks over to Tupac in the middle of his “fun” and Tupac puts his arm around him, ALL while the girl is continuing her “favor.” As the tape ends, Tupac is ready for intercourse and it is unclear if any more activity continues on any other tapes.
There’s a rumor going around that Madonna will headline this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, which is scheduled for Sunday in Indianapolis. If it happens, it would be Madonna’s first Super Bowl performance. She almost did it twice before…in 1998 and 2000…but both times the negotiations fell through. A rep for the NFL wouldn’t confirm or deny it…and there is no word from Madonna’s people. It would be good timing for Madonna though, she is releasing an album next spring and the first single could be out around the time of the Super Bowl.
Now that T.I. is finally a free man…again….he has to avoid trouble. And on Saturday night, he did just that by playing peacemaker, and stopping Diddy from starting a brawl at an Atlanta nightclub! The club was hosting a party after the taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards. Diddy noticed some people drinking Grey Goose vodka and went BALLISTIC…apparently because he doesn’t like anyone to drink anything but Ciroc. Too sum it up in a G rated format, this is what happened. Diddy threw ice at the Grey Goose drinkers and yelled “..put that crap down, before I come smack the purple shirt off your ass. What are you gonna do!?! Get out of my face!” At that point it looked like there could be a fight, but T.I. cooled Diddy off saying, ”I ain’t with none of that. I’d get on up out of here and let ya’ll handle it. I’ve done enough time. Puff you have too much money for that. Let them drink what they want to drink, I love you, you’d know I’d go to war with you but come on man..”
Joe Jonas (from the Jonas Brothers) has released a remix of his song “Just In Love” featuring Lil Wayne. I LOVE THE SONG, I think he’s uber talented, but that’s just MY opinion. You can listen to it HERE. What do you think?
Waka Flocka Flame held a charity bowling event in Atlanta last Thursday night, but a massive brawl broke out after some dude punched Waka. Sources say that it was started by a “former protégé’” who accused Waka of owing him money. After he was hit, Waka chased the guy down before his entourage broke it up. However, Waka’s people say he was just acting in self-defense. The police were called, but no arrests were made. Watch the video HERE.
New couple alert! Lauren Conrad is dating Derek Hough (from Dancing With The Stars). The former Hills star was spotted with Hough at the Sayers Club in Hollywood Saturday night. An onlooker said they looked more than friendly, “definitely playful and flirty.” A security guard tried to block the paparazzi’s view. I think they look cute together, good for them!
Singer/songwriter Stevie B was arrested during a concert Friday night for failing to pay child support. He was performing in Massachusetts when police hauled him offstage mid-set. HOW EMBARRASSING! He’ll be arraigned today. He is accused of owing $420,000 in unpaid child support to an ex-lover. Can you imagine his embarrassment?! And if you need help remembering his music, THIS should help. This song was AWESOME.
It was a busy weekend for T.I., he made a surprise appearance at the B.E.T. Hip Hop Awards, which airs October 11th at 8pm. He performed with Young Jeezy. T.I. had just been released from a halfway house two days earlier. He made an even BIGGER surprise appearance last night in Atlanta when he joined Taylor Swift in a duet. She introduced T.I. by singing the opening chorus of his hit song “Live Your Life.” They stood side-by-side as he rapped and she sang the vocal part originally handled by Rihanna. You can watch the performance HERE.
Dancing With The Stars has had plenty of celebrities and their professional partners hook up. Well yesterday, Rob Kardashian said that it’s already happening this season. Quote, “I know some of the couples on the show, some of the celebrities that are married…that are having an affair with their partner.” He didn’t say which ones. So now….time to speculate. Rob is out, since he’s not married. Same with Kristin Cavallari, Elisabetta Canalis, Hope Solo, Ron Artest, Ricki Lake, and, yep, Chaz Bono. Carson Kressley is out, because he wouldn’t want to have an affair with an icky girl. I’m also going to rule out David Arquette, because he has a new girlfriend and he and Courtney Cox are friends again..he wouldn’t want to blow that. And J.R. Martinez has been through WAY too much for anyone to gossip about him. That leaves us with Chynna Phillips cheating on her husband, Billy Baldwin…or Nancy Grace cheating on her husband, David Linch. I’m putting bets on Chynna Phillips!
Rihanna almost had to postpone that video shoot in Ireland earlier this week, when she had trouble finding an around-the-clock BINKIN WAXER. Rihanna didn’t get to her hotel until 2:00am Monday morning…and she was desperately in need of some landscaping, because the shoot was scheduled for early that morning. A source says, quote, "Her assistants got on the case quickly and called some beauticians after finding a directory on the web. It was relief all round when they finally managed to find someone."
Drake was taking some promo pictures for his upcoming album…and he must’ve forgotten to clean up his drug residue. In the photo you can see a perfectly shaped white line of cocaine next to him, a credit card in his left hand and a plastic bag. To validate it’s him, you’ll notice he is wearing the same shirt in both pictures, even the one where you can’t see his face. What do you think? You can see the pictures HERE.
Snoop Dogg’s 12 year old daughter, Cori B, is trying to launch a music career and here’s a video of her singing her first single, called “Do My Thing.” It kind of has a Rebecca Black vibe, but give it a chance. It’s not bad, remember, she’s 12. Listen to the song HERE.
One group wowed the judges last night on the X-Factor and guess where they were from?? The acappella quartet is called 4Shore and they are from VIRGINIA BEACH. They sang the Boyz II Men hit “End of the Road” and received a standing ovation from the crowd and very positive remarks from the judges. All four of the judges passed them on to the next round. Awesome job guys! You can watch their performance HERE.
We’ve all heard the rumors that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are on the rocks for one reason or another, but we can now confirm that there is definitely trouble in paradise. Neither of then have been active on Twitter lately, which is odd because they usually tweet ALL the time. The last thing of any interest was last Friday when Demi tweeted “When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.” That was the day BEFORE she and Ashton’s 6-year anniversary, which they spend apart…..and which Ashton allegedly spent nailing a sexy, 23 year old blonde named Sara Leal. Sara has reportedly hired a lawyer and gone into hiding. A source says, quote, “It was definitely a long time coming, but they’re finally done for good. Ashton was a serial cheater, and Demi just couldn’t take it anymore. She didn’t deserve to live that way. It’s a painful time for Demi.” The only thing left to figure out is how to divvy up their supposed $290 million fortune.
Tyrese Gibson was doing a radio interview in Delaware to promote his album, when he mentioned that he saw a liquor store across the street from a school on his way to the station. And he didn’t like that. He said, quote, “Get them cats out of here…selling alcohol right across from your kids’ school homie….put the pressure on them homie….you know how to put pressure on dude selling in your hood.” When the show went to a commercial, the program director called and told the jock not to let Tyrese back on the air. And the owner of the station told TMZ it was indeed because of his rant. The guy felt Tyrese was “disrespecting” the local community. Tyrese later tweeted, quote, “If you STAND for something….you will damn near fall for anything.”
Justin Bieber has released an acoustic remix of Lil Wayne’s“How To Love.” Justin produced the version, played all his own instruments on it and even RAPPED a few lines. Sort of. There’s no word if Justin plans on formally releasing his remix…but it sounds like he did it for Wayne. When Justin dropped the song on Twitter, he wished Wayne a happy birthday, who turned 29 on Tuesday. You can hear the song HERE. It's pretty good!
Rihanna was in Ireland filming the video for her new song “We Found Love.” The field she was using was owned by a man named Alan Graham. Rihanna eventually went topless during the video and Mr. Graham KICKED HER OUT! He said, quote, “I have character and I felt it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God. I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.” Ok…..If Rihanna was topless in YOUR backyard, would YOU kick her out??!
Guess who might be pregnant? Jessica Simpson! There is also an anonymous source saying that Jessica is already having some weird cravings, like nacho chips dipped in chocolate, cheese flavored popcorn and non-alcoholic margaritas. At a recent birthday party of fiance’ Eric Johnson, she sent back her glass of champagne for the birthday toast. THAT right there is a pretty big clue!
The manslaughter trial for Dr. Conrad Murray got underway yesterday and the prosecution wasted no time dropping some heavy bombs. They accused Dr. Murray of negligence and incompetence, and said he killed Michael Jackson by overdosing him with the anesthetic propofol. Meanwhile, Murray’s attorney said in his opening statement that Michael KILLED HIMSELF. He said Michael delivered the fatal dose of propofol to himself. The courtroom got to hear audio of a drugged up Michael and him slurring his speech. I have to warn you, if you are a big Michael Jackson fan this may be a little difficult for you to listen to, it's intense. The words are on the screen since it's hard to understand. But HERE IT IS. What I find interesting is the random drama that happened BEFORE the trial got underway. As Dr. Murray was entering the courthouse, a woman who appeared to be in her late 20’s tried to rush him saying, quote, “I have to talk to him. I have to talk to him.” Deputies brushed her aside and told her to leave, which she did. Ummmm, what was THAT about??
Petey Pablo is headed to the slammer. He’s been sentenced to 35 months in prison, which of course is just about three years. There’s no word when he’ll begin it. Last year, Petey tried to carry a gun through an airport in North Carolina. Amazingly, it was even DUMBER than it sounds, because the gun was LOADED…and STOLEN…..oh yeah, and it was on 9/11 last year!!!! Good grief….
It was elimination time on Dancing With The Stars last night, and it didn’t go quite like everyone expected it would. Despite Chaz Bono’s terrible performance, he was NOT in the bottom 2. Those slots were filled by David Arquette and Elisabetta Canalis. Let’s not forget Elisabetta was one of Monday night’s top scorers, with 21 points. In the end, nailing George Clooney wasn’t enough to keep America’s interest. Elisabetta was sent home.
It was week 2 on "Dancing With The Stars" and your top performers were Ricki Lake and Kristin Cavallari. Not doing so well was Carson Kressley and Chaz Bono. BUT, the REAL star of last night’s show was Nancy Grace’s BOOB! It made an appearance during her dance but this is probably why. She stuffs her bra, just not the way you’re thinking. Her 3 year old twins send her good luck charms everyday, things like barettes and stones…..she has no pockets to put them in when she dances so she puts them in her bra, which probably nudged them upwards out of her outfit. Tom Bergeron said “In Europe that might have been ok..”
Lil Wayne flew a groupie all the way to Miami so he could hook up with her, but when she got there he apparently got so high that he couldn’t perform and passed out. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal if Wayne wasn’t on PROBATION and is supposed to be sober. The picture is of him in his pajamas lying on a couch, so he COULD be, oh I don’t know, taking a nap? You can take a look at the picture by clicking HERE.
NEW COUPLE ALERT! Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo are making sweet music together. They went public with their affections for one another at his belated 22nd birthday party in Hollywood on Sunday. Jason’s next album “Future History” is due out today 9/27!
The rumors that Chris Brown and his girlfriend are expecting a baby can finally be put to rest. Chris took to Twitter last night saying, quote, “So we are clear, she is NOT pregnant.” So there! And on a little side note, Chris Brown fell during his performance in Indianapolis on Sunday night saying, quote, “I know ya’ll seen me bust my ass!” The stage was wet and he was actually told to take it easy, but Chris Brown never wants to disappoint, so he went hard anyways, causing him to fall. His performances are always amazing so one little slip won’t hurt. He makes falling look goooooooood.
And last but not least, HAPPY 29th BIRTHDAY TO WEEZY F. BABY!
Justin Bieber is quite the romantic, fellas you may want to take some notes. After he and girlfriend Selena Gomez saw a Demi Lovato gig in L.A., they went to a movie, by themselves, AT THE STAPLE CENTER!! Justin rented out the STAPLES CENTER! You know, where the LAKERS PLAY!? They saw “Titanic.” Justin tweeted “Romance isn’t dead, treat your lady right fellas.” It also didn’t cost Justin a dime, they let him rent it out for free because he sold it out three times. It's the least they could do right?
More break ups in Hollywood to talk about. Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins split. It happened when Lily went to Canada to shoot “Snow White.” A source says, quote, “It was a clean break that Taylor initiated.” And we saw this one coming, Kat Von D and Jesse James broke up, AGAIN. Hopefully this time for good because they both just need to be single for a while if you ask me. As for why they broke up, Kat says, quote, “It was clear to me that we were just on two different paths in life.”
Lady Gaga paid tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer during her performance in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Jamey is the 14 year old Gaga fan who committed suicide last week after being bullied about his sexuality. She dedicated her song “Hair” to him saying, quote, “We lost a little monster this week and I wanted to dedicate this song to him tonight…Jamey, I know you’re up there looking on us, and you’re not a victim, you’re a lesson to all of us.”
An awesome group of celebrities are donating their time and talent to offer youth these days a wake up call, literally! The Get Schooled Foundation launched a campaign aimed at encouraging more students to get to school everyday. You can sign up to receive phone calls with prerecorded morning wake up messages from celebrities including Jesse McCartney, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz and Wiz Khalifa. I'm trying to imagine what they would sound like, especially a Wiz Khalifa wake up call....LOL!
Betty White can add “rapper” to her list of talents. She recently dropped some vocals onto a remix of “I’m Still Hot” by Luciana, who’s a British techno artist. It’s now on iTunes and Betty did the track as a part of a partnership with The Lifeline Program. A large portion of the proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Zoo.
