Amy Abandons Tour

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

After many drugs and horrid performances, Amy Winehouse has called it quits.

Amy, with the instruction of her doctor has canceled all remaining live and promotional appearances for the remainder of the year. She had completed 8 shows and had 8 more to go before the end of the year, but missed last night’s gig in Bournemouth. Before the show, she met with her management and tour company staff and announced her plans to quit in a very tense meeting.


Amy’s management released a statement saying: “The rigors involved in touring and the intense emotional strain that Amy has been under in recent weeks have taken their toll.

“In the interests of her health and well-being, Amy has been ordered to take complete rest and deal with her health issues.”

“Amy says –

I can’t give it my all on stage without my Blake. I’m so sorry but I don’t want to do the shows half-heartedly. I love singing. My husband is everything to me and without him it’s just not the same.”

A source who was in the meeting said: “She was in floods of tears and weeping that she couldn’t go on without Blake.

“People told her this would go down terribly with the fans and lose her a ton of money, but she was adamant.

“Amy’s clearly in a right state at the moment, but she was adamant. The meeting broke up about 5pm. It’s far from an ideal position.”

Refunds for the remaining dates will be issued from the point of purchase.

We hope she gives in and goes to rehab. She is in a bad state.

We wish her well.

Britney Plans to Shoot Video in Record Time

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007


Brit gets blonde and tanned for her new video production for her single “Piece of Me”, scheduled to begin Tuesday at 8 a.m. at Social Hollywood, Us Magazine reports.

A source tells Us that the video will be directed by Wayne Isham, who helmed the video for the 2002 Brit hit, “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”

The source says that in the video, Brit and her dancers enter a club in matching wigs and trench coats in order to sneak Spears in. Once in the club and without her disguise, the pop star is followed by the paparazzi regardless.

A set source tells Us that since Spears, 25, has a scheduled visit with sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, on Tuesday, she will only be available to film for two hours, between noon and 2 p.m. During that time she will shoot scenes where she dances on a bar and runs down a staircase. There will be 15 extras, as well as a body double for Brit.
Looks like this one has the same recipe for disaster, as was the shoot for “Gimme More.” Complete with crying fits and break-downs, while leaving the extras and crew a lot of sitting around time, like 4 hours at one point, when she stormed out of there without leaving any instruction.

I like Britney being the boss. She creates chaos!

Kevin DuBrow Dead At 52

Monday, November 26th, 2007


The lead singer of 80’s glam-metal band, Quiet Riot, Kevin DuBrow was found dead in his Las Vegas home yesterday confirms the band’s drummer, Frankie Banali. Kevin had just celebrated his 52nd birthday last month in New Orleans.


Frank wrote on his website:


“I can’t even find words to say. Please respect my privacy as I mourn the passing and honor the memory of my dearest friend Kevin DuBrow.”

A cause of death has yet to be determined. Quiet Riot bassist Kelly Garni has asked fans to be patient for details on the singer’s death.

“I ask that no one here offer any speculation or opinions, theories or other things that could be construed as negative or, and I’m sorry for this, even sympathetic, right at this immediate time. I am already, within hours of this, having to deal with untrue rumors and speculation and that only adds fuel to that. There is a tendency for the subject of Kevin to incite flames on every board, and now is not the time for that. I will explain to everyone here the facts and the truth in the next 24 to 48 hours as I realize this will affect us all. So please, until then, be patient. All details and other pertinent info will be passed on to you here when it becomes available to me.”


Randy Rhoads, who died in 1982, was a founding member of the band and guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne at the time of his death. Credited with helping to launch the 1980s glam-metal scene, Quiet Riot are perhaps best known for their cover of Slade’s “Cum on Feel the Noize,” which appeared on 1983’s Metal Health and eventually peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was the first by a metal band to reach the chart’s #1 position.

Rest in Peace.

Will.I.Am’s Innovative New Album About Girls!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

Hip hop producer 32 year old, Williams James Adams, Jr., a.k.a, Will.I.Am is ready to spill his third solo album. An innovative producer with the skill of global branding, he mixes his eclectic taste to blend pop, hip hop, rock, bossa nova and electronica.
After producing such acts as Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, Mary J Blige, Pussycat Dolls, John Legend, he’s currently in studio working with the King of Pop, on Michael Jackson’s new album. A good fit for Michael since he prides himself on innovation.

Will.I.Am’s new album, “Songs About Girls” deals with “the girls” that inspired him over the last few years ranging from the ladies that raised him, dated him, flirted with him and broke up with him. Some say it may be pop album of the year and after the success of Fergie’s solo career, it just may be.

Rihanna’s Dad Not So Clean

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

Rihanna tells Giant Magazine that she grew up with a crack addicted father, which kept her on the straight and narrow. She’s calls her mom a very hard worker that tried to shield her from negative elements, but her very father was always home toiling with drugs, creating a very undesirable environment.

“I just knew that my mom and dad would always argue when there was a foil paper with an ashtray,” she says. “He would just go into the bathroom all the time. I didn’t know what it was. … [But] he knew that to get closer to [his kids], he had to cut that out. And he did.”
You stay on that straight and narrow and don’t get anymore of those creepy tattoos.

Brit’s VMA Performance How It Was And Was Supposed To Be

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

Side by side comparison of Britney’s VMA’s performance against a performance of her dancers rehearsing with a stand in (as Brit had better things to do that day I’m sure).

What do you think?

You gotta love the level of realism they were trying to achieve in rehearsals, I mean anything less than a 165 lb. stand in, just wouldn’t have looked right y’all!

Florida Representative Bob Allen, was convicted on Friday of soliciting prostitution.


 The GOP has had a time with sex scandals this year!   


The disgraced Republican, who is actually married to a woman, was arrested in July after offering an undercover police officer $20 to perform oral sex on him in a men’s bathroom.

“I am innocent. I have done nothing wrong,” Allen said. “My family, my God and my constituents know that and we’re not going to stop until we get that justice.” 


Hey big spender!!!

The Jolie-Pitts Wont Be Using Neverland To Get Weird

Monday, November 12th, 2007


Ang and Brad were set to buy the house of Never Neverland, but MJ’s reps claim it’s no longer on the market.


A and B thought it would be a great place to raise their 4 children and I don’t see why not? What child doesn’t deserve all the comforts 55 servants could offer. They were especially impressed by the security of the compound and thought the zoo would be great for kids.


I guess normalcy is low on the list of things they want for their children.



Michael Wont Lose Never Neverland After All

Monday, November 12th, 2007





Ah a little fancy paper shuffling and a few signatures and the house is yours AGAIN.


According to Jackson’s spokeswoman, Raymone Bain said in a statement that the singer, who has not lived at the property since his acquittal on child sex charges in 2005, did not default on a 23.2 million dollar loan on the home.


“Contrary to published reports, Mr. Jackson was never in default of the loan,” the statement said. “Mr. Jackson is in the final stages of refinance and will not lose Neverland Valley Ranch.


“No further comments will be made regarding this subject as it has been our long-term policy not to address Mr. Jackson’s personal financial affairs.”


Michael Jackson has been struggling to put his career back together after child molestation charges were brought up on him in 2005. He left Neverland for Bahrain, Las Vegas, and is currently living in Washington.

Should “The Dog” Be Forgiven?

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Duane “Dog” Chapman apologizes on Hannity & Colmes.

Unfortunately, he didn’t get it right in his interview, in fact, he may have dug a deeper hole, but we must consider the source.

Enough of the racial division over this word. This hillbilly has used the “n” word all of his life. Racial division in the prison system breeds hate, for which he spent 18 months (in a Texas prison). It’s time to make the word go away! Equally, for all of us! It’s not right for anyone of any race or color to use this word to describe another human. This is a hurtful word that has caused a lot of pain and ruined careers. It must be banned.

On the contrary, there have been cases where the same word, has been used intentionally, for the sake of comedy. A jewel in the center of a $50million career, Dave Chappelle renewed the use of the “n” word in 2002, on Comedy Central’s “Chapelle’s Show”, when he created hilarious skits centered around the very word. The skits became instant classics, causing the once forbidden word to become household slang across America and throughout our schools, which will no doubt be passed on to their children and so on.

We must stop the division!

Just as the “eff” word has become normalized, perhaps, we should allow this one too, to become used as acceptable slang. Many acceptable versions of the “eff” word have been put into circulation like; “friggin”, “freakin”, “effin”. I even noticed a tab on a pair of children’s clothing today, called “friggin skinny chinos”, then later dined at a respectable lunch spot and overheard a 65 year old man, ordering the “effin good sandwich”, which he shared with his wife. I’m personally outraged, but where do we go from here?

So… Can Duane Chapman be forgiven? I think he should be. No way is he going to make this mistake twice and if he does, then pull the plug! This was a recorded personal conversation between family members, not an intentional use on his show. Chapman states that he’s not using the word based on hate, but as a way to express himself. This man makes his living by physically chasing dangerous, hardened criminals, for our entertainment.

The level of his backwards thinking is evidenced in his appearance, speech, mannerisms, and colloquialisms, and is the very reason A&E sought him out to create a show (around him). Capitalizing on these very traits. Now he’s banned from A&E for being the epitome of his character, himself. A self proclaimed “dog”.

dog: a. a person regarded as unattractive or uninteresting. b. Something of inferior or low quality.

Can we really not rise above. Are we so offended of his personal use of language, made public via a “set-up” by his own son? Is anyone truly hurt by his actions, other than the man himself?
