Lady GaGa Dubs Born This Way asThe Greatest Album Of The Decade!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

How is this for blowing your own trumpet!

Lady Gaga is performing her Monster Ball tour all over Europe, and while in Poland, she revealed to her audience that she believes that her new album, Born This Way, has the potential to be the greatest album of the decade!

She said:

“I promise you, I’ll never let you down. And not for nothing: The album’s finished and it’s fucking really good. So whatever this is, whatever you just did for all of us…I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade, just for you. The funny thing is that some people have reduced freedom to a brand. They think that it’s trendy now to be free. They think it’s trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about Born This Way. This connection that we all share is something so much deeper than a wig or lipstick or an outfit, or a fucking meat dress. Born This Way is about what keeps us up at night and what makes us afraid.”

Gaga land or what!

Ochocinco Naked for PETA and Engaged!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

NFL superstar Chad Ochocino not only hates fur, but confirmed today he was off the market by announcing his engagement this morning.

Us Magazine reports:

He announced that he is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show Tuesday.
“Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said after being asked about the rumors. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know, my days are over.”
He said he knows Lozada — who’s been sporting a 10-carat ring from Jason Beverly Hills — was The One.

He goes on that he normally doesn’t endorse marriage whatever that means.  Still, considering this is a man who suggested dating “a black dude” would cure Lindsay Lohan, we have to assume he doesn’t really think much before he opens his mouth to speak.

Ochocinco is Engaged. Also, Naked.

I’m all kinds of confusing today.

In a double-whammy to Kim Kardashian, NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco not only hates fur, but just took himself off the market by announcing his engagement this morning. Us Magazine reports:

He announced that he is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show Tuesday.
“Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said after being asked about the rumors. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know, my days are over.”
He said he knows Lozada — who’s been sporting a 10-carat ring from Jason Beverly Hills — was The One.

Normally, I don’t endorse marriage, but considering this is a man who wisely suggested dating “a black dude” would cure Lindsay Lohan, I’m going to assume he knows what he’s doing. Clearly, a higher mind is at work here.

Natalie Portman wows us in Red Swan!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Black Swan the psychological thriller set in the world of New York City ballet stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue when a new rival joins the company (Mila Kunis).

The movie follows the story of Nina (Portman), a New York City ballerina whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance.  She lives with her mother Erica (Barbara Hershey), a retired ballerina who zealously supports her daughter.  When  the artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice.  However, Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well.  Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality.  Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan.

As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

It may well be a genre that is a little tired but all the same it is a movie that is well worth the trip to the cinema with excellent performances all round.

The Fox Searchlight Pictures release by visionary director Darren Aronofsky (THE WRESTLER), takes a thrilling and sometimes terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.

    NeNe Leakes Divorce: She’s At “The Breaking Point” and Taking Baby Steps

    Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

    NeNe Leakes visited an attorney and filed for divorce on last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” show after husband Gregg has been accused multiple times of cheating on her.

    Although up to present NeNe has stuck it today she posted a blog on Bravo’s website called “The Breaking Point.”  She says the blowout she had with Gregg was so much more than what the viewers saw.

    “All I can say is, I’m tired!” she writes. “Only I know what I’ve been through! My happiness and independence means everything to me, and I want to follow my heart, but I’m scared! I’m taking baby steps, but I hope I’ve been brave enough for all the women that couldn’t! I hope I was able to show my children what a strong woman looks like and stands for! I will only accept loyalty and trust! My happiness is everything to me!”

    Divorce is ugly and painful whatever the reason for the breakdown of a marriage and  NeNe is going through the same as any other woman in her position.

    Whether you live in a multi-million dollar house and wear Gucci or a rented apartment and wear Jaclyn Smith, divorce hurts exactly the same.

    It took almost everything in our power not to title this “Brad and Angie Get High With Kids.”  But, they seem like delightful parents, so we wanted to avoid any sort of negative innuendo.

    Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, kids, and entourage flew from the seaside in Seychelles to Paris, France where Brad and Angie are to promote their latest films, Megamind and The Tourist.

    After trading the Seychelles sunshine for Paris’ sharp winter weather, the group coated up to partake in a hot air balloon ride over the city for of Pax’s birthday.  Maddox, Shiloh, and Zahara joined birthday boy Pax and their parents almost 500 feet above ground on Air de Paris for an unforgettable view!

    Music legends Anita Baker and Ronald Isley were honored at the 2010 Soul Train Awards

    Monday, November 29th, 2010

    The second annual Soul Train Awards honored Ronald Isley and Anita Baker and featured performances by Cee Lo Green, Erykah Badu, Bruno Mars and others.

    Howard told MTV News that the Soul Train Awards show how far we have come in America. “It reminds me of the advancement black people have made over the years because Soul Train really was the beginning of that Black Power movement when we could actually see ourselves — and to have an awards show based upon that Soul Train — it’s headed somewhere,” he said. “We have a black president now. The country seems to be more tolerant towards the diversity inside of it so it seems like the train is moving well down the tracks.”

    Anita Baker tribute

    Artists including Chrisette Michele, Goapele, Lalah Hathaway, Dionne Farris, Kem, Tamia, Faith Evans and El DeBarge all paid tribute to the R&B legend by singing a medley of her greatest hits.

    “It’s amazing because you’ve got children behind you singing Rapture — it’s lovely,” Baker told the crowd of the real musicians performing live with a band. “Let’s do it again!”

    Ronald Isley tribute

    The tribute to Ronald Isley, co-founder and lead singer of the Isley Brothers, also had artists including Jeffrey Osborne, Freddy Jackson, DeBarge, Tank, Eric Benet, Bilal and Peabo Bryson singing a medley of his hits. Isley also performed a medley of hits with Change Moore and R. Kelly.

    Sam Elliott in ‘November Christmas’: Heart-Warmer, or Eye-Roller?

    Monday, November 29th, 2010

    Hallmark’s latest production November Christmas, a story of how neighbors (Sam Elliott and Karen Allen) help a family trying to cope with their daughter’s illness.  Fearing his daughter won’t survive the holidays, the father (John Corbett) comes up with a plan to help her have a festive Halloween in August and a magical Christmas in November.

    In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, Elliott said he’s a fan of the sentimental nature of the movie:

    I think it’s a good thing. In these cynical times we live in, it’s hard to come by this kind of material, yet Hallmark comes up with it consistently.

    Yeah, I guess they do at that.

    November Christmas aired last night on CBS.

    Also available on DVD.

    Actor Leslie Nielsen Dies At 84

    Monday, November 29th, 2010

    Leslie Nielsen, the dramatic lead in Forbidden Planet and The Poseidon Adventure and the bumbling detective in The Naked Gun comedies, died on Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla from complications from pneumonia.  He passed away in hospital surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent John S. Kelly said in a statement.  He was 84.

    “We are saddened by the passing of beloved actor Leslie Nielsen, probably best remembered as Lt. Frank Drebin in The Naked Gun series of pictures, but who enjoyed a more than 60-year career in motion pictures and television,” said Kelly.

    The feature film, The Naked Gun, with George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson and Priscilla Presley as Nielsen’s co-stars. Its huge success led to sequels The Naked Gun 2 1/2 and The Naked Gun 33 1/3.

    He will be fondly remembered for his performance in Airplane! the 1980 hit that turned the actor from dramatic leading man to comic star and gave him what was probably his best known line.

    “Surely you can’t be serious,” an airline passenger says to Nielsen “I am serious,” Nielsen replies. “And don’t call me Shirley.”

    Nielsen arrived in Hollywood in the mid 1950’s after 150 live TV dramas in New York and first performed as the king of France in the Paramount operetta The Vagabond King with Kathryn Grayson and although the film flopped MGM signed him to a seven-year contract.

    His later movies included All I Want for Christmas, Dracula: Dead and Loving It and Spy Hard.

    Born on Feb. 11, 1926 in Regina, Saskatchewan Neilson grew up at Fort Norman, where his father was an officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  He was one of three sons, and Nielsen once recalled, “There were 15 people in the village, including five of us. If my father arrested somebody in the winter, he’d have to wait until the thaw to turn him in.”

    His father was a troubled man who beat his wife and sons, and Leslie left home as soon as he graduated from high school at 17.  He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, even though he was legally deaf (he wore hearing aids most of his life.)

    Nielsen also was married to: Monica Boyer, 1950-1955; Sandy Ullman, 1958-74; and Brooks Oliver, 1981-85 and had two daughters, Thea and Maura to his second wife.

    Listen to Lil Kim Diss Nicki Minaj on New Song!

    Saturday, November 27th, 2010

    Nicki Minaj has received a lot of praise for her star-studded debut, Pink Friday but not everyone is in Minaj’s corner.

    Rapper Lil Kim disses Nicki Minaj in “Black Friday,” in a new song that you can hear below and in addition also lashes out at Drake on “Black Friday,” insinuating that the rap game is too tough for the two relative newcomers.  ”Black Friday” gets straight to the point, with Lil Kim dissing Nicki Minaj as follows:

    “I’m turning Pink Friday into Friday the 13th…aight, you Lil’ Kim clone clown, all this buffoonery sh*t stops now, time for you to lay down. I’m sick of the fraud, I’ll put hands on this b*tch like a spa massage…this his hood sh*t you and Drake ain’t built for. This sh*t the other b*tch almost got killed for.”

    Lil Kim goes on to boast that she is on top whilst Nicki Minaj is on her “fourteenth minute of fame.”

    What do you think.  A little bit of jealousy creeping in there?
