Heath Ledger’s Tribute Video to Nick Drake

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Heath Ledger is in a music video for “Black Eyed Dog”, for which he directed and starred. The video was a tribute to Nick Drake, British folk singer that died in 1974 by an overdose of anti-depressant, amitriptyline. Heath made the video as a tribute for the artist for whom Ledger was obsessed.

The video displays “disorienting” and “eerie” images that include Ledger drowning himself in the final scene. These images were shown also on many tv stations at the time of Heath’s death, but the video is just now available by The Nine Network, who gained exclusive rights to the video.

Starbucks Panders to iPhone Users

Monday, February 11th, 2008


Finally, Starbucks is ditching T-Mobile and soon AT&T will be serving up the Wi-Fi.

This spring “AT&T will soon extend the benefits of Wi-Fi at Starbucks to its wireless customers”.   “Millions of AT&T and Starbucks customers will get Internet access free from the comfort of their neighborhood Starbucks.”

Yay, so finally we won’t have to worry about T-mobile taking over the free Wi-Fi anytime we get in the radius of a Starbucks.  I think I’m in the mood for a venti, extra ice, iced Americano, 2 splendas and a splash of half and half.

Friday, February 8th, 2008

Miami, FL, February 7, 2008—Tito Puente Jr., son of the late world-class percussionist Tito Puente and his longtime girlfriend Gloria Martinez, welcomed their son Tito Antonio Puente Jr. to the world. Little Puente Jr. was born at Palmetto General Hospital in Miami, FL. He is 7 pounds 3 ounces and 20 inches long with a smile just like his dad and grandfather.

“There have been many incredible moments in my life, but this is the greatest. I can not compare it to anything else, he is a true blessing in my life”, said Tito Puente Jr., leaving the medical center where his son was born. The artist, who stopped his tour to spend this week for the birth of his son, was joined by his mother Margaret Puente, who arrived from New York City in time for the occasion; Margaret is the widow of the late Tito Puente and grandmother to his daughter Miranda Cristina Puente, whom was born last year at the same hospital.

Dr. Robert Fojo presided over the delivery and confirmed that the baby is healthy; also stating that he was delighted to be part of this important moment in Tito Jr.´s life.

Meanwhile, the new father will continue with his concerts throughout the United States and abroad next week. Now celebrating the arrival of his son, as his father would, Tito Puente, Jr. and his son are having the time of their lives.

Britney Spears Rolling Stoned

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Brit hit Rolling Stone March edition I can’t wait till it hits my mailbox. Not unlike a True Hollywood Story, they are covering the steps up to her huge career and steps down to the total fallout.

Rolling Stone has released this small little excerpt from the article. I think they are referencing Brit’s Betsey Johnson shopping trip where her credit card wouldn’t work. Brit threw a tantrum in the dressing room and threw her soda and then stormed out cursing at the sales girls. Adnan tried to calm the situation by begging the sales girl to make the credit card go through.

A crush of managers in black shirts and gold name tags try to keep the peace, but the crowd running after Britney gets larger, and now the shopgirls have ­started to catch up to her, one of them slipping spectacularly in her platform shoes, grazing her elbow. She pulls herself up, mustering the strength to tap Britney’s shoulder. “Um, I’m from the South too,” she mumbles, “and I was wondering if I could get a picture with you for my little sister.”

Britney turns to Ghalib and grabs his arm. “I don’t want her talking to me!” she screams. She whirls around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. “I don’t know who you think I am, bitch,” she snarls, “but I’m not that person.”

Page Six also adds that, Brit got a boob job when she was just a teenager, but hated it. “She regretted the implants, particularly because her chest was still growing. And when her natural breasts became larger, she had the implants removed.” Brit has always denied that she’s had any kind of plastic surgery.

No longer pregnant and back to dirty. Christina was at the Los Angeles Best Buy last night, signing her new concert DVD, Back to Basics.

Yes, back to her basically slutty looks. She definitely needs to strip back down to basics and look like a mommy for a while.

Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey on TRL

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey were on TRL today promoting their dumb new movie “Fools Gold”. Rumor has it that Kate is pregnant, just like the rest of Hollywood, since she’s been seen wearing dresses that are ample sized in the belly area.

Well, that’s what I was going to tell you about, until I realized McConaughey was sporting a “J.K. Livin” t-shirt. Dude’s gonna be a father and he’s still gonna keep on keepi’n on?

At least he cleaned up a little. No, he probably just cleaned up to draw more attention to his ridiculous shirt. Who wants to bet he’ll name is new baby J.K.?
