The iPhone is the hottest phone there is, and yes, I am biased. But then again, aren’t we all biased to a certain degree? There simply is no denying how good the iPhone looks and how well it works. Of course, we cannot discount Android phones. They are everywhere, and while the chances that your favorite celebrity uses Android are slim, there are celebrities who prefer what has been dubbed the geekier (or nerdier) platform. Whatever their reasons may be for choosing Android phones, you can’t blame them. After all, you can still check out celebrity news using those phones, can’t you?
So here are some celebrities who love Android phones and are not ashamed of it. Read the rest of this entry »
Dame Judi Dench is one of those rare women that knows how to age gracefully and with dignity (take that, Joan Rivers!). The acting legend knows that growing old gracefully is sexy and looking your age is actually a good thing.
But the famed actress did recently reveal that her age has also meant that there are some things that remind her of her “seniority.” In a recent interview she revealed that her eyesight is deteriorating. It has come to a point, Dame Dench said, that she needs to have her scripts read to her. Read the rest of this entry »
Who doesn’t love dogs? I guess there are people who really do not harbor any affections for man’s best friend, but being a dog lover myself, that is rather hard to understand. Of course, we all have our preferences, but if you are a dog lover, you would also love to read about celebrities who can’t feel enough love for their canine friends.
Check out these celebs who would go the distance for their dogs.

Whitney Houston hasn’t even been laid to rest yet but controversies are already hounding her family.
According to reports from the media, Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy is said to be quite distressed because of what she claims is Bobby Brown’s attempts to try and get on the good side of Brown and Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina. He’s doing this for very selfish reasons – to try and get his hands on Whitney’s fortune. Read the rest of this entry »
Whitney Houston’s death was devastating news not just for people in the music industry but for millions of music fans who know that a true talent’s life has come to a sudden end. But it is her family that has truly suffered a great loss. Whitney Houston’s daughter with ex-husband Bobby Brown is probably the most affected by the death of her mother. Reports say that she was inconsolable and near hysterical when told of her death. It has also been reported that she has suffered from an emotional breakdown. What a poor kid.

The entertainment industry is still reeling from the shock of Whitney Houston’s death a few days ago. It was sobering news that put into perspective the price of fame and celebrity. Houston’s death also cast a pall on the recently held Grammy Awards, where she reigned when she was at the top of her game in the 80s and 90s.
Whitney Houston will be forever remembered by people of my generation as a talented singer who battled with her own demons. Hits such as “The Greatest Love of All” and “Saving All My Love for You” are entrenched in our memories and are staples in karaoke sessions. In spite of her early professional success, Houston struggled in her personal life. Her problems with substance abuse and marital issues were widely publicized, and yet she went on to try to revive her career.
This is a sad end to the life of a talented person, and she will indeed be missed by the industry and her fans.
Rest in peace, Whitney Houston.
Celebrities are perfect. They have no flaws. They are always at their best, even upon waking up.
Stupid as those statements may sound, they do come up in the minds of Jane and Joe Average, if only because of what is portrayed by the media. Now and then, we do come upon pieces showing just how human celebrities are. Humans like you and me.
This is not to downplay the health condition of any celebrity in this list. Neither is it to make fun of them, but if you feel a slight sense of schadenfreude, no one will make any judgements for sure. So here are some celebrities with health conditions, if it makes you feel any better that they are human after all.

Adele’s stirring up a lot of talk and not in a bad way (yes, we’re looking at you MIA). The extremely talented British songstress is gearing up for her much anticipated performance at the 2012 Grammy awards. The anticipation is well deserved, this is going to be her first performance after undergoing vocal chord surgery. People are hoping that her voice will not be affected by the operation.

The New England Patriots suffered a disheartening loss against the New York Giants at last Sunday’s Super Bowl. The match was closely fought until the very last part of the game, which makes it a more painful defeat for the Patriots. Tom Brady, the Patriots’ quarterback, was especially sad after the game. But trust his loving wife Gisele Bundchen to console his husband. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyone looks forward to the Super Bowl year in and year out, and while most people anticipate the game, you can’t deny that the half time show plays a major role. And when it comes to the Super Bowl half time show, controversy is no stranger.
Remember Janet Jackson’s breast-baring act? “Nipplegate”, as it is sometimes called will be forever remembered by those who saw and heard about the “wardrobe malfunction”. Never mind that more than half of the audience have seen more than a breast exposed on the wide screen. The American public still clamored against that act of “indecency”.
This year, I am rather surprised that Madonna has not provided the controversy for the half time show. Tell me you aren’t!
One of her fellow performers on stage did that instead. Rapper M.I.A. did not go all the way, but still stirred up conservatives by giving a camera her middle finger.
It’s definitely not appropriate. M.I.A. should be fined or something, then let’s forget about her. It’s not like she gets lots of publicity these days anyway. Maybe she thought that making that gesture would get her more than five minutes in the limelight in 2012.
For good measure, here’s the video of the half time show.
The family of Nick and Aaron Carter just suffered a great loss with the death of their sister Leslie Carter.
