Keith Urban in Rehab

Friday, August 31st, 2007


Keith Urban is middle of promoting his new CD, fittingly titled, ‘Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing’, but all has been postponed until he completes his treatment. It was rumored that his cocaine problems were worse than ever a few months ago and Nicole was going to leave him to escape further turmoil. Keith checked himself into rehab last night for drug issues and released this statement, “I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me.” “One can never let ones guard down on recovery and I’m afraid that I have. With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome.” The singer even pulling out of a planned appearance at the CMA Awards Nov. 6. Urban is nominated for four awards at the ceremony, including the top prize, Entertainer of the Year.

This is very sad. I wish them well. Poor Nicole deserves an easier time.

Britney Spears A Hit

Friday, August 31st, 2007


Looks like after all of the hair, wardrobe and parenting mishaps, Britney may come back on top…. again! She has a new hit that dropped today and it’s not a parked car. “Gimme More”was produced by the same guy that churned out two monster albums last year. Nate ‘Danja’ Hills is a Timbaland protégé, that was introduced to Timbaland through a childhood friend in 2005, who produced Nelly Furtado’s successful comeback record, Loose and Justin Timberlake’s, uber successful SexyBack. See what you think, you can hear it here at Perez. It doesn’t have the dance pop that “Toxic” maintains, but it will for sure be a hit, especially after all the fanfare surrounding this mess the past year. She has been asked to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards, Sept. 9, but Timbaland, this years musical director for the event, thinks that her performance will overshadow the other performers. Timbaland tells E! Online that, “He thinks it would be too much drama, and that she is going to take away from the other performers.” It is rumored that she is to open the show in a vanishing act that would lead her in and out a series of mirrors, vanishing and reappearing. This is said to be the reasoning behind her late nights with Chris Angel. Okay that makes sense, but why the hell are so many other Hollywood starlets hanging out with this out-of-touch magic man? I wish he would make the silver rings, bandannas and pukka shells disappear! Now that’s a show I would watch. Chris Angel on What Not To Wear, but I digress. Back to Britney, no matter what she sings or wears, it was reported today that her monthly income is an average of $737,868, so can she really fail? She tries!


Clay Aiken Finding Sexy And Bringing It Back

I’m still shocked that this person performs for anyone other than himself in the mirror, but since the reality is that “Reality Shows”, make “Reality Stars”… here is the real Clay Aiken performing, Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” (thanks D-listed) video on his summer tour. Clay is performing with an orchestra and is blowing minds by performing a medley of songs that one wouldn’t expect to hear with an orchestra. How very avant-garde of him.

Clay tells Houston’s Sun-Sentinel, “I’m actually going to do — God help me for saying this — with [the orchestra], a little bit of SexyBack. We’re going to do a little medley of songs that people wouldn’t expect to hear with an orchestra. I know that it’s not going to be cool. I have no problem making fun of myself. I could never pull songs like that off without knowing where my place is, and it’s not as Justin Timberlake. Thank God we have him. I’m happy to be the person who gets the old ladies covered.”

Clay Aiken not cool? No!! Yeah, I bet Clay Aiken is happy to have JT! I know I’m ready to bring sexy back now and I want a full refund!!
