The Smith family keeps pushing out pint-sized stars, this time it’s Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada. Willow has a song called “Whip My Hair!” which is believed to be the first song off her upcoming freshman album debut.
Okay, so the song isn’t as good as most stuff playing on the radio right now, but given her young age, it’s a promising debut, heck even Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) need a TV show to launch her career with mediocre songs.

I have a deep rooted hatred for the completely industry manufactured Ke$ha or as I like to call her “Lady BlahBlah” because she wants to be Lady Gaga but has no intelligent lyrics to match that want. Now a video which has surfaced from a 2001 high school band camp proves my point, she’s nothing but a made up industry wanker who changed her entire image to sell some albums.
Don’t get me wrong, some of her songs get stuck in my head, but really it’s like a bad hit of crack that I just can’t get over. Watch as she dances horribly and gets pretty much no attention…even from the geeky band boys. Read the rest of this entry »

Danielle Staub has added some of the craziest (bitchiest) moments we’ve seen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey but that will no longer be the case, with Bravo announcing on Monday that she will no longer be part of the shows lineup.
The move shouldn’t surprise the show’s viewers as Staub managed to piss off just about everyone during season 2 including her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and a good family friend in Teresa Giudice.
Bravo’s Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Development Andy Cohen said of her departure:

I’m placing this one firmly on the unverified rumors back burner, but it appears Katy Perry, the girl happy to sing about being a California gurl, may soon be a British citizen.
It’s no secret that Perry is set to marry British comedian Russell Brand next month and now insiders are saying she’ll become a British citizen to fully embrace her husbands country.
In the least, Perry will have to receive dual-citizenship so she can stay for extended periods in England with her hilarious hubby.

The Sunday Mirror is reporting that David and Victoria Beckham have put their “Beckingham Palance” mansion up on the market, apparently as they get ready to make their Los Angeles digs their permanent home.

They love it there – they’re well liked, have plenty of friends and feel it’s their spiritual home.”

Bristol Palin said on her Friday appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” that she isn’t a Dancing With The Stars diva as has been reported lately.
In fact Palin says the only thing she has ever asked for while practicing with partner Mark Ballas was a velcro attached mic pack so she wouldn’t have to wear it around her belt loop.
She said of Levi “He’s changed. Night and day, definitely,” adding “The guy I fell in love with was a hard-working Alaskan man that didn’t want to wear straight-legged jeans and get chased by Radar.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Admiral Twin, a landmark drive-in movie theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma was playing “The Last Exorcism” this week when the theater caught on fire and burned down.
The Tulsa Fire Department told the Tulsa World on Friday night that they were still unaware of how the fire first started. The theater has been showing movies since it opened in 1951.
TMZ thinks it was possessed by a demon or perhaps visited by Satan, which may explain why the only thing that appeared to stay in place was the sign for the movie about exorcisms.

Lady Gaga may be a fiercly original pop star, but let’s face it, her gig has become pretty predictable, put her in a situation, have her pose half naked in that situation and then move on. That was the case for her recent V Magazine shoot in which she posed as the statue of Liberty…half naked.
In the photo (shown above), she wears a lacy bra and Calvin Klein undies as part of a collaboration she undertook with famed designer Marc Jacobs.
That gown hanging off her half-naked body? That would be a Louis Vuitton evening gown. Read the rest of this entry »
