No arguments here, I have to agree with People’s 2009 choice for sexiest man alive – Johnny Depp! There is something about him; I think he is kind of mysterious and just plain “cool”. He’s 46 years old and has 2 children. Congrats Johnny but for some reason I know this award means nothing to you.

The Sexiest Man Alive: Johnny Depp

I’m not a hugh Taylor Swift fan but I did thoroughly enjoy her monologue song on SNL. She takes a “small” jab back at Kanye. Not mean but gets her point across with dignity…good going Taylor.

Looks like Leno may have made a mistake. He says if NBC asked him to return to The Tonight Show he would take it. I guess his ratings on his new show are not that good. I’m not a huge Leno fan and I did watch his show a couple of times but that was it…it didn’t grab me. I do like him better then Conan though. We shall see if NBC invites him back.

Jay Leno

Good for you Paul Haggis for quitting  Scientology! Mr. Haggis (Oscar winning director of one of my favorite movies CRASH) left the “religion’ due to all their gay bashing. What the hell are they up to and how can so many celebrities be part of that? Did John Travolta quit…I hope he does! Good riddance Scientology!!

This is a few months old but I missed it and was just shown the link on Facebook. If you like to watch dancers then watch…A Dance for Life….produced for the benefit of Aids Foundation.

One more reason not to like Oprah…on November 16th she will be interviewing Sarah Palin. Obviously I am not a fan of Sarah nor Oprah so I won’t be tuning in that day. I’m all for aggressive, strong women but Ms. Palin, in my opinion, was…is obnoxious. Unfortunately I think her book will do well. That’s Ok…just as long as we never have to call her “president”.

Sarah Palin

How funny is this…they have a fleet of pink cabs in Mexico that won’t stop for men…only women can drive and be passangers in them. I guess women were tired of the male drivers trying to hit on them and be rude. Riding in these makes them feel more comfortable.  Will they make their way to the U.S?

I just read this…you tell me what is wrong with it –Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, asked the judge for the probation extension because she said Lohan has been busy with work and unable complete her substance abuse treatment program. BUSY WITH WORK…what’s up with that. What is more important here…work or a substance abuse treament program. I think the world can suvive if Lindsey misses making a movie.

Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to report to a Los Angeles court Friday morning.

When you hear “Bob Dylan” you may think “Like a Rolling Stone” or “Lay, Lady,Lay” but did you ever think “Here Comes Santa Claus”…well this Christmas he is relasing his first holiday Album.  It got 3.5 stars (out of 4) so if your a fan you may want to check it out. Dylan will donate his royalties to 3 charities that aid the hunger.

Obama met Saturday night with the largest gay rights group and delivered a rousing speech. Here is my favorite quote from him “Despite the progress we’ve made, there are still laws to change and hearts to open.” And as for the dont ask don’t tell policy, here is his statement on that ” I can announce that after more than a decade, this bill is set to pass and I will sign it into law”. Keep it up Obama…there’s still prop 8!!

President Obama speaks Saturday night at the Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington.

So it looks like Jane Adams (star of the HBO show HUNG) walked out on a $13.44 check at a restaurant. She told the server she left her wallet in the car and then never came back (her agent came in the next day to pay). Of course the server was a little ticked off so he “tweeted” the news and then she got him fired for telling on her. I have never met this woman but I don’t like her…what an ass!

Jane Adams Hung Twitter

So Chicago was eliminated in the first elimination round for the 2012 Olympics…damn! I think Oprah had something to do with it…not really but I’m not an Oprah fan. I honestly didn’t think we were going to win…Chicago is a great city but the weather is just awful! Oh well, we will survive.

According to James Michael Tlyer…you remember, he played Gunther on Friends.  Well he is saying that a film adaptation of Friends is “definitely on” according to the NY Daily News. Hmmm…how reliable are they. I would love a FRIENDS movie, if Sex in the City can do it then why not. I’m hoping!!

 I’m just not sure about Mackenzie Phillips…over the years she seems to just keep telling us stuff. I’m not saying she is lying, I’m just saying she is “odd”. I saw her interviewed on the Today show today and I don’t know if she is a person that is totally trustworthy in what she says. I’m sure there is a lot she doesn’t say.

Just in case you missed Neil Patrick Harris host the Emmy’s last night here is his opening act. He was adorable and did a great job. He has come a long way from Doogie! Good job Neil!!

Way to go Newlywed Game…finally you are having your first gay couple. Better late then never! Gay couples need more positive exposure so they can legally wed in all 50 states!!

You can see this over and over again and never get sick of it. I still get goosebumps watching.This is Patrick at his best…what a cool guy. He will be definitely be missed.

Way to go Beyonce…you have such class!!  Thanks for giving Taylor her due time!! (sorry the quality of video isn’t the best)

So Ellen is the new American Idol judge…very interesting. I am not an AI fan but a huge Ellen fan so I am torn. Will I now watch…probably not. I think the only way I would is if Cher was a judge.

 The Emmys are not far…September 20th. As I have said in the past I love Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory…if you don’t want this show give it a shot…it is so funny (mostly the character of Sheldon played by Jim). Here is what he had to say about his nomination- (oh…and good luck Jim)

I think now I have seen it all…a new doll for kids that dances on a freaking pole. I seriously don’t want to be associated with any person who actually buys one for their child. What were they thinking?? And we wonder why the world is in trouble.

Tell me it isn’t so…I just heard the women of  The View won the Emmy for best talk show host over Ellen DeGeneres. One of the four women must have something on the Emmy people and is hanging it over their head.  The View is a joke…Ellen is real! And to boot…no one was there out of the four of them  to receive the award. How lame.

 

RIP Mr. Kennedy. You will be missed by us Democrats 🙂

How excited am I that Project Runway starts up again this week (Thursday, August 20th on Lifetime Network). I LOVE this show…it’s the only reality TV I watch. So everyone tune in because they have had quite the battle getting back on the air. Give it a try…you will be hooked!

Cool…Kiss is releasing a new album on October 6th exclusively at Wal -Mart (that’s kinda weird). Kiss was the very first album I ever bought but honestly I’m not sure if I will buy this one? I’m hoping its good. I’m gonna rock and roll all night…and party everyday!

I’m not sure why SELF magazine is getting blasted for touching up Kelly Clarksons photo…dont ALL magazines do it. I agree it is definitely wrong (especially when your magazine is called SELF), I really think all this airbrushing and making people look slimmer is deceiving. But if Kelly is so OK with herself why would she allow SELF to cover her up…I would have to think she had the final approval of her photo?

I dare you to look at this most emailed photo of the day and not say “awwwwwwwwwwwwwww”. Look at the heart shaped pattern on his coat. He was born in Japan on August 6th.

If you are older like me, of course you remember the Monkees. Well, looks like Mickey Dolenz wife was just arrested in NY on charges of defrauding a public housing program in the city. She illegally received $136,866 in government rental subsidies for an apartment on the upper east side of Manhatten. I guess that Mickey isn’t recieving any royalites from his Monkees gig anymore?

I’m sorry but this is a tad scary…I just saw this on MSN…they are showing all differnent periods of Madonna’s muscles. I think she should have slowed down by now and relaxed. What do you think?

Happy Birthday Mr. President (Aug 4th). I won’t sing like Marilyn Monroe did with President Kennedy, I will just send warm wishes. And what a great present…Vanity Fair has the Obama’s on the top of their list of best dressed. They are one snazzy couple-

Has it really been 20 years…yes, I admit, I have watched many “Saved by the Bell” episodes. My kids watched them (well maybe only one) and so I started. I like those kinds of shows, remember I was a huge fan of The Fact’s of Life (which is much better then SBTB). Well anyway…happy reunion! Now I feel even older.

No, you are right that it isn’t big news that Britney’s ex, Kevin Federline has gained a lot of weight. But I was just amazed that he looks so different. Kirstie Alley looked the same with all her weight but if I tripped over Kevin on the street I would not know him.  Check it out-

Kevin Federline

Way to go Daniel Radcliffe ; read what he has to say-

In a recent interview with Britian’s “Attitude” magazine, the “Harry Potter” star opened up, saying, “I just loathe homophobia. It’s just disgusting and animal and stupid and it’s just thick people who can’t get their heads around it and are just scared.”    TOUCHE!!

I ‘m not a fast food fan so Taco Bell is not a place I visit often but I do know of their chihuahua…I think everyone knows the Taco Bell chihuahua. Well her name was Gidget and she died yesterday at the age of 15. I would say she put chihuahua’s on the map. I think even Disney did a movie about them. RIP Gidget.

Taco Bell Chihuahua Dies

I honestly have no idea who Tyler Perry is but I do know I love what he just did. There were 65 kids who were turned away from a predominantly white swim club and he sent them all to Disney World for 3 days!! He paid for airfare, food, 3 day passes…the whole bit!! Perry says about the Valley Swim club  – “This made me so angry. This is awful, and for anyone that has grown up in the inner-city, you know that one small act of kindness can change your life.”   Kudos to you Mr. Perry!!

Tyler Perry Sends Snubbed Kids to Disney World

Way to go Jim Parsons for being nominated for an Emmy as best actore in a comedy series…you are the best!! If you have not seen this guy play Sheldon in “The Big Bang Theory” then you are missing out on great acting. Good luck Jim…may the force be with you!!

   

Damn, Robert Redford just got remarried…missed my chance again. Even though he is 71 he is still “Robert Redford”! He is one of those classic handsome moviestar. I never though of him as a “don juan” type guy…he appeared to be a nice person to me. Congrats to him and his new wife (it’s only his second marriage).

Hmmmm….what do we think they talked about behind those closed doors? Maybe Obama changed the Pope’s mind on abortion. What is that saying…when pigs fly.

Staying with the Michael Jackson theme I had to share one of my favorite Thriller takes from “13 going on 30”.

I thought this was cool of Madonna to pay tribute to Michael Jackson at her 4th of July concert. I can’t get sick of watching Michael or a good impersonator dance. Even if you think he’s a freak you have to admit he’s got the moves.

I don’t know if it is true but rumor has it that Jennifer Aniston and Bradley Cooper are dating. I usually don’t care who dates who in Hollywood but I really want Jennifer to end up with a good guy…I think she got the raw end of the deal with Brad.  She is adorable and so far I like Bradley. I’m not saying she needs a man to be happy but I don’t want her to end up with someone that will be jerk. (they are cute together)

Yes, I did give Michael Jackson’s death front page over Farrah’s death but only because I have done 2 posts regarding her  illness already. She will be missed but her passing is a blessing because I believe the cancer was causing suffering. She will always remain a great memory for me…the 70’s!

So now the Academy Awards will have 10 Best Movie nominations instead of the 5 they have had for the last 81 years starting next year. I’m not sure if I like this…it’s kind of like having 4 teams in the Super Bowl. Oh well, I will just have to live with it…I don’t know why no one consulted me on this though since I am a big fan of both movies and the Oscars!

How excited am I…Cher is coming back to the big screen! She will be starring opposite Christina Aguilera in a musical called Burlesque . This film marks the first movie Cher will sing onscreen. I’m already hoping for a second Oscar for her!!

Cher to Make Her Musical Movie Debut

Good news everyone…Kirsten Dunst has signed on to do Spiderman 4 (not sure when it is coming out). They wont say if Peter and Mary Jane are getting married but just as long as they are together. I just love Spiderman…I think Spidey 2 was my favorite so far.

Has Kirsten Dunst Signed on for a Spidey Wedding?

David Carradine, age 72 was found dead in Bangkok…possibly suicide. I would not say I was a big fan but I do have some nice childhood memories of watching Kung Fu…he was just so wise in that show. Then later on he turned so evil in the Kill Bill series and was great in that role as well.  Hopefully he is at peace now…little grasshopper.

David Carradine

If you are a Billy Crystal fan, especially his past Oscar opening productions then I think you will like this. He says good bye to Jay Leno on the Tonight Show in the same style.

At the age of 52 Kelly McGillis finally came out and said she was a lesbian. I know it’s not anyones business what your sexual preference is but I just wish more people would come out and not try and hide it. The more the merrier and then maybe…just maybe we won’t have prop 8 issues. People need to see that gay people are like everyone else. (FYI – she was the girl in Top Gun)

The voice of Mickey Mouse for more then 30 years has died…his name was Wayne Allwine. In 1966 he got a job with Disney in the mailroom. In 1977 he became Disney’s icons voice. It just goes to show you that sometimes you have to start sorting the mail before you make it big. Not to say sorting mail is not a cool job…its whatever makes you happy.

I found this story quite disturbing. Two journalists checked out Brooke Shields mom who is suffering from dementia from the nursing home she is in just to get a story. They claimed they were friends of hers and the nursing home let them sign her out. Do these people have a conscious? You just don’t take advantage of the eldery and sick!! I also think the home needs better security. Brooke…I would press charges if I were you.

Michelle Obama is at it again…being cool! Anyone who makes an appearance on Sesame Street and especially with Elmo is OK with me. It’s all about being healthy-

New EQCA commercial comes out in California today…watch and learn. We will not give up…but all you Yesers should!! (yes, I made up that word).

Dom DeLuise died Monday night in his sleep…talk about lucky. That has got to be everyone’s hope when their time comes… to fall asleep and just peacefully move on to your better place. Dom was a funny guy, he was a great character actor. RIP Dom.

Way to go Christina Applegate for being on the cover of this Friday’s PEOPLE magazine 100 Most Beautiful ! After a rough few years battling breast cancer and having a double masectomy your still as beautiful as ever…inside and  out. She has a new lease on life which many people could use…including myself. Congrats!

RIP Bea Arthur. I liked Bea, she appeared to be a strong independant woman. She had some great shows that she starred in …All in the Family, Maude, and Golden Girls. She was 86 when she died so that is a nice long life…I’m sure she is in heaven with that deep voice of hers!!

On Monday, April 27th Mia Farrow plans to stop eating in support for the people of the war-ravaged Darfur region of Sudan. She is a UNICEF goodwill ambassador and hopes this will draw attention to the millions of people at risk of starvation after the Sudanese government expelled 13 aid agencies last month.  Good luck Mia.

Farrah Fawcett recently annouced that her cancer has spread to her liver. I will always remember Farrah as one of the original angels, Charlies Angels. I loved that show! My best goes out to her. Did you know she opted for this one piece swimsuit becasue of a scar on her stomach?

Finally the  Obama’s have their puppy…Bo. I like the name , it’s from Michele’s fathere who was nicknamed Diddley (Bo Diddley) and their cousin has a cat named Bo. It was a gift from Ted Kennedy who has 3 portuguese water dogs. I wonder who will train the puppy…is that a secret service job?

The Obamas' Dog Has Arrived – at Last!

Michelle Obama has given me some inspiration to plant a tomato garden. She just planted the White House garden with spinach, lettuce and more.  I think maybe this Easter Sunday may be a good day to start. I think Michelle is doing a wonderful job as our first lady.

First lady Michelle Obama smiles as she helps students plant herbs in the White House Kitchen Garden.

Just the other day I was thinking about John Travolta and Kelly wondering how they are doing. Then I see they will be on the cover of People but they aren’t discussing how they are doing since the death of their son, but their friends are. I find that odd. I think they should leave it alone until they are ready to talk. Not second hand news.

John and Kelly: How They're Coping

Someone told Madonna “NO”…they are brave. Looks like Malawi is not allowing Madonna to adopt a second child. Will she accept this decision or should they be afraid…very afraid.

Michelle Obama does it again…showing just how cool she is . The queen and her hugged…I guess it’s rare for the queen to “touch” anyone in public. Things are changing…and all for the good! It’s a beautiful day…don’t let it get away.

For all you Simpsons fans, get your .44 cents ready. On April 9th the post office is rolling out its new stamps featuring the Simpsons in honor of it’s 20th Anniversary. Matt Groening has rendered the artwork for the set of 5 stamps. The Simpons are going postal!

Way to go Valerie…you look great, Congratulations!

David Letterman got married…in case you missed his top ten list on why-

10. Poconos offers newlyweds free room with champagne-glass Jacuzzi.

9. If I’m gonna catch Larry King, I’d better get going.

8. Still drunk from St. Patty’s, dude!

7. She needed a green card.

6. When you’re my age and look like I do, if someone says they’ll marry you, you do it.

5. Don’t have to listen to any more crap from that quack Dr. Phil.

4. I finally fit into my dream dress!

3. Free cake

2. Got tired of waiting for Paris Hilton.

1. Figured at the least we’d get a mediocre Top Ten out of it.

 Thank God…I just read that Zach Efron just pulled out on the remake of Footloose…that great 80’s movie. There is no way Zach could come close to filling Kevin Bacon’s shoes…no way! They must contiue the hunt for that role…love the dance!

It pays to be a pain in the ass! Ellen has been non-stop campaigning to be on the cover of O with Oprah. Last month Oprah finally shared the cover with someone other then herself…she shared with Michelle Obama. And wow…now Ellen. Maybe Oprah has stepped down from that high horse.

 I will always remember Natasha Richardson as the mom in Parent Trap, I don’t know a lot of her work but I thoroughly enjoyed her in that role. I think I have seen that movie a dozen times. I always thought she was so pretty in that movie in a simple & classy way. My heart goes out to her family.

I just read the Kim Kardashian is sticking up for Lindsay Lohan since this past weekend when Lindsay was issued a warrent for her arrest. My point here is…who the hell cares what Kim Kardashian has to say. Who the hell is this woman anyway  besides an annoyance .

Variety now reports that Brad Pitt is considering running for office. I know he was recently in D.C and met with Nancy Pelosi and even Mr. Obama but does that mean he is considering a future in politics? I happen to think he would be quite good, he seems to be very committed to his project in New Orleans. If the freakin Terminator can do it so can Benjamin Button.

Chris Brown finally does a smart move by removing his name from the Kids Choice Awards. I can’t believe Nickelodeon was going to leave him on …are they insane! I don’t think this guy should be seen on a kids award show and I’m not even sure about Rhiana. Don’t go back to a beater…like Pink would say “stupid girls”.

I am a fan of Michael J Fox…I had a crush on him back in the “Family Ties” days, loved him in the Back to the Future series and laughed with him in Spin City. Now he is doing a special called ” Michael J. Fox: Adventure s of an Incurable Optimist” on ABC. He will search the world for reasons and examples of what make people happy. I think it’s a great idea, I have always been curious about that, it’s hard lately to be happy.

If you are a fan of the DD then you know I am not a fan of Oprah…she just bugs me. Reason # 229 why she bugs me…she is always on the cover of her magazine…her and only her. Well, looks like this month she is willing to SHARE the limelight with someone else, First Lady Michelle Obama. I just wish the big O could have let the big M the whole cover!

The time is here…this Thursday, the 5th, the courts will hear both sides to Prop 8…to me there is only one side…the right side…the no side…the equality side…humanity’s side.

In like a lion, out like a lamb…yep that’s March. Big snowstorm hits the Northeast on March 1st. I know when I used to live in NJ I was so done with it by March. Get out those shovels!

FOX is renewing The Simsons for 2 more years which will make it the longest running prime time series of 22 years. WOW, I think back to how old I was when it started…damn I was young! Now at 20 years it is tied with Gunsmoke that ended in 1975. I was not a Gunsmoke fan, I didn’t watch much with cowboys in it. I have watched Simpsons and their are some funny shows. I wonder who will ever pass them up?

"The Simpsons"

My question is this…do the characters on LOST follow what is happening in the show. Do they understand their characters story line or do they just go along with what the director says.  This season is the most confusing of all, I don’t think any normal viewer totally understands what’s going on.  They need recaps of the recaps. Well, they sure did title the show right…LOST. I still love it though!

Episode 501

  Is it my imagination or does it seem like lately whenever I put the news on there is another airline crash. Today’s happened in Amsterdam. Are crashes like deaths of celebrities…they say they come in 3’s. I’m going to start counting. Maybe the airlines are spending too much time thinking of how to save money and not enough time checking out planes.

 iReporter Laura Eekhos went to the crash site after hearing about it on TV. The area "was swarming with people from our town," she said.

 

If I had to place a bet on one Oscar this year it would have to be  that Heath Ledger will win best supporting for his role as the Joker in “The Dark Knight”. It definitely will not be a sympathy won, he was the Joker more then the original portrayer, he put Jack Nicholson to shame. If Heath does win the Oscar will go to his daughter when she turns 18.

The late Heath Ledger is expected to win best supporting actor for playing the Joker in "The Dark Knight."

Even if you are not an “animal” person you have to feel a little bad for Mickey Rourke. His best friend these past 18 years died, his dog Loki. He said in one of his acceptance speeches -“Sometimes when a man’s alone, that’s all you got is your dog. And they’ve meant the world to me.”  Sorry Mickey.

I form my opinion on a celebrity after I see them interviewed…I have decided I don’t like John Mayer after seeing him on Ellen, I thought he was a bit cocky. Looks like he will be attending his first Oscar ceremony this Sunday…he will be the date of Jennifer Aniston (who I think is adorable). I like her better with Vince Vaughn. You can do better Jennifer!

John Mayer Ready for Oscar Date Night

Victoria Secret’s just came out with their “SEXY LIST 2009″…and I have to agree with their “Sexiest Actress Past”, although I think she is the sexiest past, present and future. The winner is, of course, Marilyn Monroe.

I love Annie Lennox, she is in my top 5 music artists. Now I love her even more…she refuses to endorse designers.  She states “I don’t want to be a clothes horse for a designer. That’s not who I am. I’m not a model. I’m an artist, and so I don’t want to be owned by some label. You wear this expensive designer dress on the runway and that’s who you are. It’s almost like a status symbol.” Now she is one cool dudess.

I always look forward to hear who the new contestantes of “Dancing with the Stars” will be…it means they  are in trouble and times are hard. I guess Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go’s didn’t have a good financial advisor because she’s on this season. If Cher ever does this show I will be devastated!!! Good luck Belinda!

What if someone was to come up to you and say “the laws are changing, tomorrow you can’t be married”. And yes some of you are joking saying “that would be a good thing” but to all these gay couples it’s not a joking matter and we must stop this damn prop 8. Watch this new video and take action by signing the petition.

Well, I have to agree with Kellogg’s on this one, they dropped Michael Phelpls contract because of his pot smoking photo. I really don’t care if he smokes pot but don’t be dumb enough to have a photo show up. The Olympics is a big deal and his “rep” with kids a hard thing to keep up. Next time you smoke a pipe, be more discreet Mr. Olympics.

So what is up with the Batman dude Christian Bale, can you say Anger Management classes. First he had those assault from his mom and sis (but they didn’t press charges for fear of all the publicity) and then he goes balistic on the crew of his new movie. I honestly would not hire him and I think everyone should boycott his movies until he seeks professional help. Behavior like this should not be tolerated…even for Batman!

 

Looks like PEOPLE magazine is doing a bit on Angelina Jolie’s family album. When I first saw this photo it looked like Angelina looking “hippy-ish” but then realized that was her mom and she is the baby. I can’t believe how much mother and daughter look alike.

Damn, I guess my invitation got lost in the mail! This past week both Ellen (Jan 26) and Portia ( Jan 31) had birthdays and had a big bash to celebrate. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox were invited…so why not me?  Well, I won’t hold a grudge and maybe next year I’ll make it. Happy belated birthday to both of you.

Jersey man Bruce Springsteen  is in the news for 2 reasons…of course he is the entertainment at half time of this years Superbowl but he is also regretting signing with Wal Mart. He has them exclusively selling a Greatest Hits album starting this month (Feb). Wal Mart is known for not paying their employees fair wages and Bruce is a fan of workers rights. So why did he sign on that dotted line…Baby you should have run!!!

I believe in Karma and Amy Winehouse is a sad case in my eyes. Everyone time I read something about her it is negative…her house was just robbed. her husband if filing for divorce because of her adultery or she is in some kind of rehab. I know you can’t believe everything you read (like this post) but even in her photo’s she always looks miserable. I don’t even know how she got this fame but she needs to go away.

Amy Winehouse's Home Is Robbed

If you are a woman then you are sick of everyone harping on our weight. Hollywood always has to pick on some female, a while back it was Jennifer Love Hewitt (who is beautiful) now it is Jessica Simpson (who is also beautiful). Let’s finally leave the weight issue alone. Now what about this outfit?????

Stop Talking About Jessica's Weight

Can you imagine a company making dolls of your kids without your permission. Michelle Obama is not happy and I don’t blame her. Ty (the company responsible for Beanie Babies) have made Malia and Sasha dolls. First they said the names were inspired by the First Family daughters then they changed their story and said the names were chosen because they are beautiful names. Uh, let’s see, the dolls have dark skin too. Do they see STUPID on everyones forehead. I say we all BOYCOTT TY!!!! Its wrong what they did. Fight them Michelle.

What’s your pledge-

Legoland is only minutes from me but I will have to pass on seeing this display although it does look pretty cool.  I wonder if they have 2 million lego people around it to make it really authentic. Did someone make an Aretha Franklin lego hat?

I was really bored today so I YouTube surfed…of course one of my favorite searches is CHER. I came upon this interview where she discusses Madonna. It’s not the best quality video but Cher tells it like it is-

Whoever was in charge of molding these wax figures should be let go. Ringo, John, Paul and George should be insulted. They actually kind of look creepy, it should be titled “The Beatles meet Freddy Krueger on Elm Street”.

I’m not big on weddings but I love when someone thinks outside of the box and does something cool. I saw Fergie’s invitation yesterday and thought just that…cool. Actually the trend among celebrities is to hand them out after the ceremony. He likes nature she likes bling and unicorns. The leaves have hidden unicorns and it was decorated with crystals.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to TV, yes another season of American Idol starts up tonight…I can hardly wait (if only you could hear the sarcasm in those last 4 words). When will this show conk out…I just get so tired of all the hoopla around it. Simon this, Paula that, and now we have a new judge. Hopefully soon people will (in Cher’s brilliant words) “Snap out of it”.

My pick for best dressed at the Golden Globes…Drew.

  I have always thought Lisa Bonet (from the Cosby Show) was a tad “out there” and this is confirmation. She just named her 3rd baby Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa…this poor child will be spelling this the rest of his life. Her first child’s name is Zoe…big difference there.  I think the best name I have heard lately is Harlow (Nicole Richie’s girl), I think it’s very cool.

Critic’s are saying “I don’t” for the new movie Bride’s Wars that opens today. As soon as I saw the previews for this one I thought stupid.  Can we please stop making movies that make women look petty and do dumb things. Men would never act this way over a wedding (but then again men fight about much more petty things then woman do). Weddings are overrated as it is, this movie is just feeding the fire.

Well it’s never too late to come out of the closet. According to the ONION, Judi Dench age 74 has entered into a lesbian love affair…good for you James Bond Boss! Now she has been married to a man so we don’t know if she is bi or if she just hid the truth. Unfortunately her 112 year old father has condemned the romance. Oh well, I think she waited long enough to tell.

I just wanted to send my condolences to John Travolta and his family, last Friday his 16 year old son died. Of course it is awful when anyone loses a child but I just feel really bad  for John. Maybe it’s because I was a fan of Welcome Back Kotter, Grease and many of his other movies. I have seen both him and Kelly interviewed and they both seem like the nicest people. I can not imagine what they are going through…peace to them.
