Celebrities Team Up With ‘Star Wars’ & Adidas To Celebrate The FIFA World Cup Tournament

The Best Commercial EVER!

Last December we learned that adidas Originals teamed up with Lucas Films to create a new line of footwear and clothing based on iconic Star Wars characters and vehicles. But today we get to see that adidas and Star Wars have taken their new relationship into very cool new territory. A new commercial has been released that features current celebrities (like David Beckham and Snoop Dogg — who we already KNOW is a bit Star Wars fan) interacting with characters in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in the famed Cantina scene. Here are a few screencaps and some deets from this new commercial:

Star Wars, adidas and the upcoming FIFA World Cup™ are coming together like never before. Recreating the famous “Cantina scene” in Star Wars (you’ll instantly recognize the jazzy background music that sets the scene), David Beckham, Snoop Dogg, Ciara, Noel Gallagher, Daft Punk and the godfather of German soccer, Franz Beckenbauer meet up with Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3P0 and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the actual scenes of the acclaimed film. In an unprecedented, first-of-its-kind, collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd, world’s collide with movie magic: Harrison Ford as Han Solo looks on as Snoop waves a light saber and Greedo confronts David Beckham directly. To seamlessly integrate new shots of David Beckham, Snoop Dogg and company into original Star Wars footage, a set was created to replicate the original dimensions of the iconic “Mos Eisley Cantina” featured in the film. Flame software was used to composite (superimpose) the old and new shots together blending the edges seamlessly … an edited Cantina spot will air during the much-anticipated Team US vs. Team England World Cup match on June 12th.

The result is seriously one of the coolest/funnest commercials I’ve ever seen. I dare you not to laugh out loud when Snoop Dogg says his line … it’s just, brilliant. Altho an edited version of the commercial will air on TV during the telecast of the World Cup, you can watch the full 2-minute version of the spot in full, after the jump … More »

Fun With ‘Skymall’

The TV Guide

David and I made it to Albany, NY late last night after a full day of flying. As I mentioned previously, we made our way to the East coast to attend his cousin Scott’s wedding in Massachusetts today and Albany was the closest city for us to fly into to stay for the night. We’ll be driving down to Mass. this afternoon only to return late tonight to rest before we fly back to LA tomorrow.

Now, because we were flying all day yesterday, our entertainment options were severely limited … which is why I can always count on the Skymall magazine to entertain:

I’m telling you … you find the most AMAZING inventions in the Skymall … like bouncy sperm shoes (note the logo on the shoes), the potty rock (which I suspect was originally called the Shit Stone before censors got to have their say), various pieces of furniture for your pets to defecate in OR be locked up in and … well … I don’t even know what that last photo is. Good times, y’all … good times.

So yeah … today will be chock full of wedding fun! Hope YOU have a fantastic Saturday … wee!!

Lindsay Lohan Finds Another Fun Way To Hide Her SCRAM Bracelet

Wrapped in Leather

Yesterday we learned the joyous news that Lindsay Lohan successfully passed not one but TWO court-mandated drug tests and we also saw a few photos of Lindsay doing a bit of free shopping at a gifting suite in Beverly Hills, CA for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Today we get to see even newer photos of Lindsay and her little sister Aliana Ali Lohan doing a bit of real shopping elsewhere in Beverly Hills yesterday … as you can see from the following photos, L. Lo did her best to find a new, inventive way to hide her court-ordered SCRAM alcohol-monitoring bracelet:

As shoes go they aren’t the most flattering pair around. Lindsay Lohan wore an ugly pair of gladiator style boots for a shopping trip today, with the front part missing. She chose the footwear in order to hide her SCRAM alcohol monitoring anklet, which the courts have ordered she wear. Although ugly, at least the shoes were a change from the cream coloured boots she has worn for the last few days. They are also more suitable for the warm California weather, where her contemporaries are sticking to flip flops. Lindsay will have to wear the anklet, which monitors the alcohol excreted through the skin, until the judge is satisfied that she is abstaining from drinking . She also has to undergo weekly drug tests. Lohan is not due back in Court until July 6 so will be wearing her anklet for at least two months … Lindsay’s SCRAM bracelet could be clearly seen on her left leg under her slouchy boots, while her cheeks were puffy after getting her wisdom teeth removed two days ago. She borrowed a cigarette off her notorious party partner Patrick Aufdenkamp and laughed that she shouldn’t be smoking and had ‘been good lately but fuck it.’

I ain’t gonna lie … I kinda like our daily check-ins with Lindsay to see the various ways she tries to hide her SCRAM bracelet when she is out and about in public. Altho she proudly showed off her SCRAM in photos snapped in the privacy of her own sanctuary last week, she seems adamant that she will not go out in public with her SCRAM on full display. As I said, I’m OK with it … she’s being a good girl, doing what is mandated by the court … if she wants to have fun playing hide-and-seek with her new accessory, I’m all for it. I wonder what she’s gonna do next!

Amy Winehouse Steps Out With A Fine, Upstanding New Man

Bye-Bye, Blake?

When last we saw photos of the trainwreck known as Amy Winehouse, she was openly canoodling with her ex-con, ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil on the streets of London back in March of this year … but it would seem that Amy has finally moved on to sunnier pastures. Amy was spotted on the arm of a very handsome and clean-cut gentleman in London this week … could this new guy be a postive new love and influence on Amy‘s troubled life?

Is Amy Winehouse turning over a new leaf? In March she was spotted locking lips with troubled ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil – but now she’s spending time with a new dapper guy. The singer and moviemaker Reg Traviss, who directed the British film Psychosis, were pictured strolling together, holding hands and smooching in London’s swanky Mayfair district this week. Winehouse’s father Mitch told Scottish TV show The Hour that is he totally behind his daughter’s new man. “I am happy she’s got a new boyfriend, I am happy she’s moving on with her life,” he said. And Winehouse, 26, is also working on a new album, which her record company – and her family – hope will be released this year. “It’s in the pipeline and she’s working on it right now,” her father, 59, told PEOPLE at the launch party for his own album Rush of Love.

At last!! Thank you sweet baby Jebus … it’s about time Amy dropped that zero and got with a hero. I dunno what this Reg fellow sees in Amy but I can sure appreciate what she sees in him … he’s tall, perfectly coiffed and I suspect fully bathed … in short, he is the polar opposite of her loser ex-hubby Blake. I’m of the mind that you are the company that you keep … as long as Amy was trolling around with Blake, her life would never have a chance at normalcy. Here’s hoping this nice-looking new chap will be a positive influence on the hugely talented Amy Winehouse. Get it, gurl … this hottie looks like a keeper.

Kylie Minogue Makes A ‘Splash’ In NYC

Performs 'All the Lovers' for all the gays

While Mariah Carey spent part of her yesterday performing for Wal-Mart shareholders in Fayetteville, AR, pop diva Kylie Minogue spent part of her yesterday (well, technically, very early today) performing for fans at Splash Bar in NYC, NY. Kylie, who made her way to NYC earlier this week so that she could attend the 2010 amfAR New York Inspiration Gala on Thursday night, made a not-so-surprise appearance at Splash last night/this morning to promote and perform her new single All the Lovers in front of a packed house of eager (mostly) gay fans. Here are a few photos:

She may be a huge global star but Kylie Minogue seemed overwhelmed by fans’ reaction when she came onstage in New York. The diminutive pop princess covered her ears as the crowd roared when she made her entrance in gay bar Splash. In a metallic silver mini-dress, gold jewelery and smoky dark eyes, the 42-year-old looked every inch the icon her fans were expecting. An despite a hair disaster early this week due to the humidity in the American city, Minogue had managed to tame her locks back to perfection for the show. Glowing with health and showcasing songs old and new, the performance was one of many engagement the soon-to-be-aunt has in America to promote her latest album Aphrodite. After touring the US last year her fanbase is bigger than ever and it seems the star is also at her happiest. Appearing on chat show The Today Show she took the opportunity to quash rumours her relationship with Andres Velencoso Segura is on the rocks. She said to hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb: ‘Life is pretty good right now.’

Gahhhhhh!! I’m seriously dying. I LOVE Splash and you better BELIEVE had I been in NYC last night, my ass would’ve been front and center for Kylie‘s appearance. She really is so good to her fans, here’s hoping she will make a return trip to LA to do the same for the fans there, too! After the jump, check out video of Kylie performing All the Lovers at Splash Bar last night AND watch video of the Today Show interview mentioned above … More »

Mariah Carey Performs In Arkansas For Wal-Mart Shareholders

Remains mum on pregnancy rumors

Amid rumors that she is pregnant, Mariah Carey made an appearance at the Wal-Mart shareholders meeting in Fayetteville, AR yesterday to perform a short set of songs and she did so without making any mention of any rumors. As you may recall, her husband Nick Cannon make a public statement that neither he nor his wife would be making any sort of public announcement concerning the pregnancy rumors … that is, until they are good and ready to do so. Mariah didn’t even need to say she won’t say anything … she just didn’t say anything at all. Here are a few pics from Mimi‘s latest performance in Arkansas yesterday:

A voluptuous Mariah Carey took to the stage in Arkansas today amid mounting rumours she’s expecting a baby. The singer, who put her curves on show in a fitted scoop-neck gown, belted out her biggest hits at a performance for Wal-Mart shareholders in Fayetteville. But she kept mum on the pregnancy rumours and just focused on the job instead. Her husband Nick Cannon, 29, spoke on his US radio show about the reports that Carey, 41, is expecting their first child. He said: ‘I’m pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement it won’t be to the media, to the public, first. She’ll tell her family, she’ll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she’s ready to share with the rest of the world, who is her extended family and friends, then she’ll let everybody know.’ Cannon also joked about possible names for their child. He said: ‘We’re gonna do it like George Foreman. We’re gonna name all of our kids Mariah no matter if they’re boys or girls… Mariah No. 1, Boy Mariah, Man Mariah, Tall Mariah. It’s gonna be a house full of people named Mariah.’ Mariah’s spokeswoman Cindi Berger has refused to deny the pregnancy speculation, saying only: ‘I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this moment.’

Considering how much money celebs get for performing at these private shareholder events, I’m not surprised at all that Mariah decided to keep her commitment to performing. She prolly made a very pretty penny for a short time of work. Also considering how voluptuous Mimi is on a regular basis, I wouldn’t necessarily read too much into how curvy she looks in these photos. Whether she is pregs or not, she looks fantastic … and I love that she is doing the damn thing despite all the speculation. She may not be able to appear in any movies right now (ahem, for whatever reason) but at least she can still sing. Do your thing, Mariah. And don’t feel in any rush to say anything about anything until you are good and ready ;)

The 'Gossip Girl' star was arrested for pot possession in Texas

Spotted … Chace Crawford, one of the principal stars of the hit TV series Gossip Girl, lookin’ supercute yet super sad in a mug shot photo after he was arrested early Friday morning in the parking lot of Ringo’s Pub in Plano, TX for marijuana possession. Altho Chace was busted with less than 2 ounces of the illegal substance, which is a misdemeanor in the great State of Texas, he still had to be arrested and booked for his crime. He got busted, y’all!

Chace Crawford was arrested early Friday morning for possession of marijuana, according to a police report.

The charge is a misdemeanor, for having two ounces or less of marijuana. Calls for comment have not been returned.

Aww … just look at the poor little lamb’s face. You’d think the arresting officer would’ve had pity on the lad after getting a load of his super sad, frowny face.
