What’s in Justin Bieber’s Christmas Wish list? If one didn’t believe in Christmas or Santa Claus, then there’s no point to making a wish list eh?
It looks like Santa Claus wont be making any stops down the Bieber chimneys as the teen pop idol admits he was brought up with straight honest facts. The teenage heartthrob says he understood his mom’s logic on the matter of not letting him grow up believing in a fictional holiday figure of Santa Claus. Growing up and then realizing later on that he never really existed would almost seem like misleading him to believe in a lie and well, for some kids that would almost be heartbreaking.
This almost would seem sad to think, knowing how the average American kid would hardly get any sleep waiting on good ole St. Nick with a glass of milk and a plate of cookies. However Bieber says, he made an effort to keep the joy of the season for his friends and playmates a never said a word about this to them.
In the Bieber home, Christmas Day was a day to play a family traditional game of dice and chance in lieu of the usual exchange of gifts between family. The person who rolls the dice and gets double has the privilege to pick a present. And basically this allows each player the chance to either get what they wanted or end up with something totally out of their preference. The singer recalls having ended up with pots and pans instead of a much coveted Game Boy.
This year, Justin gets to spend Christmas back in the great white north and spend Christmas eve with his mom and head over to his dad’s house on Christmas day to spend time with his younger siblings. Incidentally, Justin is promoting his Christmas album with hopes that it brings cheers to everyone.

Certainly we all know Miley is no longer that sweet teen we’ve all adored as Hannah Montana. She’s all grown up and by golly, she has indeed grown into a lovely young woman in her own element. Sure enough she’s going to have boy issues at some point, as the young lass tries to keep a good balance on her career and personal life.

As it is, Miley is down under in Oz land doing her Gypsy heart tour with at least 7 more stops and shows under her arm to complete. The juice comes straight off from Miley’s older brother Trace who confirms his sister is officially back in the arms of her ex-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.

The couple called it quits August of last year but fans have seen them photographed together again last November. Word has it they have been doing the run about with the on-off thing leaving fans wondering if they can even keep up with their relationship.

Her on and off 21 year old beau is currently on set break from his upcoming movie “ The Hunger Games”. The movie has him playing next to Woody Harrelson and Jennifer Lawrence with the crew still filing in North Carolina.

While on her tour in Sydney, shutterbugs have spotted Miley and Liam last Sunday just hanging like old times . Being an Australian, we’re guessing Liam found this a perfect opportunity to show Miley around his native city. They were seen browsing at a Far East- style home décor and clothing store and a were followed onto a noodle restaurant chain having lunch. If they manage not to split up in the next few weeks, Liam may just as well catch Miley on the last leg of her tour down under in Perth on July 2.

Aaah, young love. Such a sweet time to revel in confusion and that one big quest even us grown ups still are clueless about … we all want to know what love is! But, hey it’s all about the journey and it’s pit stops that make the adventure worth writing about in our memoirs . Til then we’re crossing our fingers and hope the couple sort out this little thing called love.

The price of fame and fortune can be steep for  any celebrity at any point in their lives.  Some may be lucky to have been able to gain from their stature , and yet some … fall in too deep to even fish themselves out. And yet there are those who just happen to be in the area and get snagged.

This is what may have been the case with British Musician Joss Stone.  BBC  News reports of two men who are currently held by authorities on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and probably murder  Joss Stone in her Devon home. Both suspects are from Manchester, England.

Sources say that neighbours noticed a suspicious looking vehicle parked on the premises of the singer’s residence and made it a point to call and report the activity to the police.  Although no one knows if Stone was in her home when the men were arrested, but the sultry singer confirms she was aware of them and that she was absolutely fine and trying to get on with her life as normal.

Police reports  have compelling evidence of a murderous plot having found swords, ropes, forensic style overalls and a body bag in possession of the two suspects ages, 33 and 30. Aside from these, the men also had detailed maps and aerial photographs of Stone’s rural home.

The Detective Inspector handling the case reassures they are currently carrying out patrols and would like to make it known that no properties have been robbed and no individuals have been harmed.

Looks like wedding bells continue to ring in London for it’s celebrities, as Paul McCartney announces his engagement to Nancy Shevell. Although, no further details have been given for specific dates or whatnot, the singer popped the question during a romantic candle lit dinner. The couple has been frequently seen together gracing celebrity events and posing for pics at a gala evening at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. Noticeably, the ring still hasn’t made a public appearance.

Known for keeping a tight lip on his private life, 68 year old McCartney has been dating 51 year old Shevell for nearly four years after the rather bitter divorce of the famous Beatle with then wife, Heather Mills.

Receiving honorable knighthood from Queen Elizabeth, Sir Paul McCartney has 29 years of solid marriage to American photographer Linda Eastman. Paul admits they have only ever spent 11 nights apart during their entire marriage but sadly enough, breast cancer took her away from this wedded bliss in 1998. Their happy union gave them four children, one of which is well known designer Stella McCartney.

Love took McCartney on a second adventure with his marriage to British former model, Heather Mills in 2002 and gave them a daughter. However, the adventure turned sour for the couple and eventually led to a bitter divorce in 2006 and a legal squabble over money in 2008.

To date, Sir Paul McCartney seems to be basking in love with the Nancy Shevell, who happens to be a distinguished board member of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. We certainly wish one of the wealthiest musicians in Britain another shot at bliss. With his fortune estimated to tip at $811 million, what more could he ask for?

Michael Buble’ Gets Hitched

Crooner Michael Buble’ finally ties the knot with his Latina girlfriend of 2 years, Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre.  The civil ceremony took place in downtown Buenos Aires where fans eagerly awaited outside the civil registry for a chance to photograph and cheer on the newlyweds with their best wishes.

For their intimate civil ceremony, the bride wore a lilac chiffon dress that complimented the Grammy winning groom’s gray suit. The couple eagerly exchanged a kiss for the cameras, with the crowd totally not expecting the bride to toss out her bouquet to the mob of fans.  A 300 full seating guest list was in the sheets for a full wedding ceremony at the Villa Maria Paz to celebrate with family and friends, as well as another celebration of course, in Vancouver.

Luisana, 23, is  known as Argentina’s most famous actress. She met Michael Buble’ during his South American tour in 2008. They were introduced to each other at his after show party and from that day, Buble’ said it was love at first sight.

The 35 yr old Canadian singer  was seriously dating Emily Blunt for about two years and at some point, was once engaged to singer/actress Debbie Timuss.  This time around, Buble’ supposedly made it a point to propose in front his fiancée’s family.  Incidentally, he wrote a song especially for her, entitled “Haven’t Met You Yet” and sang this during their wedding celebration to serenade his bride.

It’s been a while since I’ve actually found an artist in this genre whose music I’ve actually wanted to download onto my playlist.  Most of the songs I have on rotation are a hodge podge collection of old school artists that I never grow tired of.  However, it was just begging for something fresh!

I was at a friend’s flat when I heard her first streaming through my buddy’s iTunes and I was instantly hooked.  Earning two Grammy awards in 2009 for Best New Artist of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance, 23 year old British singer Adele made my jaw drop with those set of pipes that just rocks your core and moves the earth!  That girl has her soul in her music and it reaches out to you.  True to this, Beyonce complimented the young artist saying that listening to her feels like listening to God!

Hearing that from the ravishing pop diva herself can make a successful budding artist end up with creating their own alter ego!  And from that day, Sasha Carter became Adele Laurie Blue Adkins’ alter ego who may just as well be a bootylicious half Black and half Caucasian woman who sings dark bluesy music in a British accent.

But who needs an alter ego when you’ve got such an amazing talent? Apparently, the refreshing luscious singer has stage performance anxiety. She confesses her dislike for tours as this has her hiding away and running out through fire exits in a vomit fit and even hurling projectile puke on someone.

At least that’s not due to an eating disorder as she admits her disdain for working out. The rather curvy singer, who is currently on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, oozes with a rather subtle sensuality to her classic beauty.  Adele believes in enjoying good food and wine and not go ape on cutting calories just to be able to show some skin like most young pop stars these days.   Although she admires Katy Perry’s décolletage and her derriere, Adele says that she makes music to be appreciated with one’s ears …and not with one’s eyes.

It was “MCA” who wrote on the groups website this week:

“Since the dawn of time, and perhaps even before, there was a silent order who were tasked with a mission. They held their secret tightly. On may 3rd the HOT SAUCE COMMITTEE PART TWO will be unleashed on the general public. Hold fast ye heathens.”

The 16-track album features a previously released single: “Too Many Rappers” featuring the rapper NAS and the following tracks:

Rebecca Black Music Video

Aspiring musician Rebecca Black has taken her music video debut viral. The song “Friday” hit the web more than a month ago, but it wasn’t until this past Friday that the video began to gain steam.

With over two million YouTube views, Rebecca could be the next big joke in music. Probably not what she wants to hear, but it’s hard to escape a Gawker headline that reads: “Is This The Worst Music Video Ever?”

The video is heavy on auto-tuned vocals and corny one liners that include:
