Plus, She Reportedly Decides to Plead 'No Contest' to Theft
Sometimes life is stranger than fiction and that is SO very much the case when it comes to the trainwreck of a life lived by Lindsay Lohan. Director Ben Rimalower and performer D’Arcy Drollinger have created an off-Broadway show called Project: Lohan that takes the found text of Lindsay‘s actual words and turns it into entertainment. Project: Lohan debuted in NYC last night and promises to give a fair but funny portrayal of the young girl’s very messy life. In real life, TMZ is reporting that Lindsay has decided to plead no contest to the misdemeanor charges of theft brought against her. If she does plead no contest, that would mean she would need to serve that 120 day jail sentence that she got slapped with a couple of weeks ago. Might Lindsay be ready to take responsibility for her actions? Is that even possible? More »
Boston, MA Gets the Party Started
After touring Europe and Japan, Kylie Minogue has brought her world tour to the US last night and officially kicked off Aphrodite Live 2011 in Boston, MA. Because her US tour isn’t as extravagant as her European tour (ie. no Splash Zone), I was worried what the “stripped down” version of the show would look like. As I understand it, very little changes have been made to the show now that it is here in the US. All of the numbers have been kept in tact, as well as the costuming and staging from the Les Folies 2011 Tour. Kylie has brought her FABULOUS show to our shores and she will be trekking her way across the country performing along the way! Check out some photos from the show and read a new interview with Kylie below. More »

Last night was my second of three Prince concerts this week and I am happy to report that last night’s show was just as amazing as Thursday night’s show. As I say all the time, no two Prince concerts are ever the same. There something different in the Prince was feeling last night that gave the show an entirely different feel. I attended last night’s show at The Forum in Inglewood, CA with my good friends Angie and Ollie. With my O(+> tambourine in hand, we made our way to one of the funkiest concerts I’ve ever seen.

Kate Moss, who seems to be quite as ease both fully clothed AND fully nude, is quite the latter on the cover of the new issue of Brazilian Vogue magazine. Moss, who was photographed by Mario Testino (who, you may know, photographed the newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Wills and Kate for all of their official Royal Wedding photos), is totally nekkid on the cover the mag … but because her back is turned to the camera, all you can see is her perfectly Photoshopped bum. Check out the semi-NSFW cover below. More »
Plus, Stanley Tucci & Lenny Kravitz Have Reportedly been Offered Roles As Well
Last weekend New York magazine reported that actor John C. Reilly was up for the role of Haymitch Abernathy in the much-anticipated big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and altho that report has yet to be confirmed, the magazine is reporting new casting rumors about the film. It is being reported that actor Woody Harrelson has been offered the role of Head Gamemaster Seneca Crane. There is also word that both Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz have been offered roles in the film. Altho unsubstantiated, this new casting talk is very interesting. More »

So … let me tell you about my night last night. I have been to my fair share of Prince concerts over the years and I am planning to attend many more in the future … but last night’s show will stand out in my mind as one of the most fun, one of the most mind-blowing concerts I’ve ever attended. I have to make clear, EVERY Prince concert is special and magical … but sometimes, the setlist just comes together so perfectly for that night that … lifelong memories are made. David and I attended last night’s Prince concert at the LA Forum with our dear friend David Russell and we had THE time of our lives. More »

Earlier this week, we got to see a few new promo posters and photos from the upcoming sequel film Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Today we get to check out the fourth trailer released for the film … and this one is good.

He Will Now Stand for Truth, Justice
and the American Way and That's All!
Ever since his creation, the alien super man named Kal-El who crash landed on Earth in the comic book series Superman has always been a US citizen. His adoptive parents in Kansas instilled him a respect for “truth, justice and the American way”. But in Action Comics #900, Superman will denounce his US citizenship after butting heads with the US government. Altho all of this takes place in the fictional world of comic books, I think it’s still a story worth blogging about … Superman will no longer be American. Whoa! More »

With mere HOURS to go before Prince William marries his ladylove Kate Middleton, it’s understandable that the lad would want to enjoy some downtime with his mates.

OR, The Show will be Canceled Altogether
Time is running out for the TV show Two and a Half Men because CBS has to decide very soon which shows will be greenlighted for the Fall TV season. Because Charlie Sheen melted down and went absolutely nuts, there is no way he will be allowed to return to the show. That said, Two and a Half Men showrunner Chuck Lorre (who Sheen has been feuding with for the past few months) has come up with a plan to reboot the show without Charlie Sheen. But, according to TMZ, the show has a 50/50 chance of not getting picked up at all. The end of the show may be very close. More »

Late yesterday afternoon I started feeling … under the weather (I don’t dare use the “s” word) and it turns out that I continued to feel worse and worse as the night progressed. Because I have 3 nights of Prince concerts ahead of me, I wanted to make sure that I got as much rest as possible so that I could start feeling better. Emma, Josh and his cousin Steve came over to hang out for a bit … but all I could do is pop some meds and go to sleep. More »

YOU are NOT READY for THIS!!!
The end is nigh. The end is SO nigh that you can practically taste it. We are mere months away from the release of the final, FINAL Harry Potter film and as each day draws nearer, a part of me withers up and dies. Warner Bros. released a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and when I say it is an epic trailer, I’m not trying to sound over dramatic and hyperbolic. This is an EPIC look at the final showdown between Harry Potter (and friends) and Lord Voldemort (and fiends). Prepare yourselves … this new trailer is going to jolt you back into the realization that the total end of Harry Potter is nearly upon us. More »

Buffy the Zombie Slayer
Pink reader Rob gave me the head’s up about some very cool Sarah Michelle Gellar news. We already know that she is planning her return to TV this Fall in a new CBS series called Ringer but it turns out that she is also starring in another new project, set for release soon. SMG is one of the stars in a new video game, y’all! In very Buffy-like fashion, SMG plays a zombie slayer in Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation – Call of the Dead. The video game is inspired by the work of horror legend George Romero and also stars Robert Eglund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Danny Trejo (Machete) and Romero himself. SMG will play the sole female role … and as you can see from the screencaps and video below, she basically looks exactly like Buffy the Vampire Slayer … but with a gun rather than a wooden stake.

Today I have more casting news to share for the upcoming big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games.

Much like protagonist Katniss Everdeen‘s mother is never mentioned by name, the tributes from District 3 who must fight to the death are never referred to in the books by name … but they are very important to the film in that they make up a small part of The Hunger Games themselves. Read on for the deets about this new casting news. More »
Born In The USA
For years, well before he was elected president of the United States of America, critics (ie. conservative politicians in this country) have been making the ridiculousness claim that President Barack Obama should NOT be president of this country because they do not believe that he was born in the US and is, therefore, ineligible to be president (our federal constitution stipulates that a person MUST be naturally born on US soil to become president). Despite the fact that President Obama issued a copy of the short form version of his birth certificate during the 2008 Presidential election, his detractors STILL have not been convinced that he is US natural born. Today, in an effort to finally END the ridiculous controversy, the White House has issued the long form version of President Obama‘s birth certificate putting to rest AT last the controversy. More »

"I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that."
Lindsay Lohan, who went to court last Friday to begin proceedings leading up to the start of her theft case and got slapped with a 120-day jail sentence for probation violation (which she is now appealing), made a surprise visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno here in LA last night to give not only her first interview since being sentenced to jail time (again) but her first TV interview in ages! Because she recently nabbed a role in the Gotti biopic, she had something other than jail to talk about so the interview (which was taped yesterday and will air tonight) was kind of a win/win for both Lindsay and Leno.

For months I’ve been talking about the big screen adaptation of the novel Water for Elephants and this weekend the film finally opened in theaters.

Britney Spears‘s young sons did a big of Easter egg hunting here in SoCal yesterday with their nanny and from the looks of the photos, it would seem that they had a great time. Sean Preston and Jayden James attended the Eggstravaganza event at Grape Arbor Park in Calabasas, CA on Saturday to get into the Easter spirit. Britney did not attend with them, presumably so that the kids could play without her drawing attention to their attendance. More »
The cast of Glee have packed up their bags and have made their way from their homebase here in SoCal to New York City where the show will be filming all week one of if not the last episode of the season. As you may know, you faithful Gleeks, the New Directions Glee Club tends to yearly make the attempt to compete at nationals … and they never quite make it. Considering that this year, the cast is actually filming in NYC (at Lincoln Center, no less) I’m guessing our beloved Glee club will fare better in the competition. Glee stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith have already been spotted filming in the city … check out below photos of the actors filming fun scenes around Times Square this weekend. More »
That Is, If Simon Cowell Has His Way
In March we learned that producer L.A. Reid had signed on to be one of the judges of the US version of The X Factor and earlier this month we learned that UK X Factor judge and popstar Cheryl Cole will reportedly be coming on board to judge the US version of the show as well. Today, in a new interview, we learn from X Factor creator/judge Simon Cowell himself that the former American Idol judge Paula Abdul will round out the judging panel as the final judge … that is if he gets his way. Apparently, the contract negotiations aren’t yet completed … but Simon wants Paula on X Factor and what Simon wants, he usually gets. More »

Today is one of those rare times of the year where I, very unfortunately, do not have time to blog for a full day. It turns out that David and I have an early flight back West to LA and, therefore, I won’t have time to work today … but, seeing that it’s a holiday, I guess it’s not all bad ;) I do have time, tho, to share some fun photos from the Hauslaib family Seder Dinner that we enjoyed last night in celebration of Passover. Because David’s family celebrates both Passover and Easter, his mother wisely celebrates the holidays in the same weekend. Check out some fun photos from the Hauslaib family Seder 2011 below. More »
Perfect Casting Strikes Again!!
New York magazine is reporting that actor John C. Reilly is in serious talks to play the role of Haymitch Abernathy in the big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games. According to the magazine, the role has been offered to him but his casting is not yet official. I, for one, think this is another case of brilliant casting! While I didn’t immediately think of John C. Reilly as Haymitch while reading the books, I can absolutely see how he could play the role perfectly.

Yesterday was David’s and my first full day here at his parent’s house in Connecticut and I’m not gonna lie … it was a very quiet day. Because we’re out in the country (ie. woods that get so dark at night that you half expect to see murderers, vampires or flesh-eating zombies roaming around in the back yard), there really ain’t much to do. For the most part, I spent a nice relaxing day reading and hanging out with David’s family. BUT, by nightfall (presumably to distract from the fact that the darkness outside looks like a horror film waiting to happen), it was time to dye Easter Eggs! More »

On the Plus Side, Her Felony Charge was Downgraded to a Misdemeanor
Day 1 of Lindsay Lohan‘s Felony Grand Theft drama is over and there is some good news and some bad news to report. Firstly, Lindsay‘s felony charge have been reduced to a misdemeanor charge … which means that even if she is found guilty of the theft, she cannot be sent to prison for the crime. BUT … here comes the bad news. The judge also ruled that Lindsay violated her probation when she was arrested for the necklace theft earlier this year … and IMMEDIATELY sentenced her to 120 days in jail!

Their Remix of 'S&M' Is the Top Song in the US
Congratulations are in order for Rihanna and Britney Spears as their remix of Ri Ri‘s single S&M is crowned the #1 song in the country. All of the credit goes to Rihanna for this accomplishment because it is her single that tops the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart but I think it’s pretty clear that Britney Spears‘s appearance on the track is largely responsible for the song being such a big hit — and for going straight to #1!

"My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully."
A firestorm of controversy whipped up around Lady Gaga yesterday over her insensitive and horribly offensive use of the word “retarded” in her new expletive-laden interview with NME magazine (published this week). In an attempt to quell the outrage over her remark, Gaga issued a terse apology that seems more explanatory than it does apologetic. Additionally, a minor controversy broke out yesterday as well as Weird Al Yankovic revealed that Gaga refused to let him release his parody song based on her single Born This Way. As another anti-Gaga firestorm started to emerge, Gaga reversed her position on the parody song and allowed Weird Al to release the song. More »

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard a seriously juicy iPhone rumor so it was very nice of the Reuters news agency to report the latest rumor this week that the anticipated iPhone 5 will be released this September. Altho iPhones are usually released in June, there has been much speculation that the next generation iPhone will be pushed back from its usual June release date. While Apple has not confirmed this report (because they never confirm anything they themselves do not report), this rumored release report from Reuters could have some semblance of truth to it.

Un-Happy Days :(
Happy days have turned crappy days for the cast of the hit 70′s-80′s sitcom Happy Days because they have decided to sue CBS for unpaid royalties that they claim are due them from merchandising from the show. In a new suit brought against the studio by Anson Williams (Potsie), Erin Moran (Joanie), Don Most (Ralph Malph), Marion Ross (Marion Cunningham) and the estate of the late Tom Bosley (Howard Cunningham), the Happy Days cast claim they are owed monies from merchandising revenues due to them under the terms of their contracts.

“I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the fuck I am”
Lady Gaga is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of NME magazine and in her coverstory interview, she seems to have an awfully big chip on her shoulder. Almost every other word out of her mouth is an expletive and she goes so far as to call criticism of her music “retarded” (which I find outrageously offensive). This interview with NME seems to be an attempt by Gaga to release all of her aggression, which is completely understandable, but the way in which she does it — unsurprisingly — is IMHO offensive and childish.

I did rally around dinner time so that we could all hang out for a bit on our first day in the city. David’s sister Eden suggested we go out for ice cream … and cupcakes … and doughnuts. Needless to say, that got me up and out of the house. More »

His 'Details' Magazine Interview
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who just completed his second stint on Broadway in his show American Idiot, sat down with Details magazine to talk about a range of topics from fatherhood, to punkness to politics. It’s when he is asked to discuss the political climate here in the US that his interview gets really interesting. He refers to the Democrats as a “bunch of pussies” and to Republican governor Mike Huckabee as “the guy that diddled you while holding the Bible”. Clearly, Armstrong is not afraid to share how he really feels about things. Read on for some of Billie Joe‘s more colorful quotes from his new Details magazine interview. More »

Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz were joined by fellow actors and other luminaries at the NYC premiere of their new film Water for Elephants which took place at the Ziegfeld Theatre last night. R. Pattz and Reese posed awkwardly for a few red carpet photos but it’s unclear if the awkwardness came from Reese‘s recent interview in Vogue magazine (where she referred to her love scenes with Rob as “unpleasant”) or Rob‘s general inability to handle press situations with any sort of suave smoothness. Check out some photos from last night’s premiere event below. More »

In February I mentioned that I started reading The Hunger Games book trilogy by Suzanne Collins and, after some delay, I was finally able to plow thru book 2 and start book 3. Because our travel day from LA to NYC was very long (due to multiple delays), I was able to finish Catching Fire, the second book of the trilogy. Overall, I loved the book … and I love where the story is headed. It’s been a long time since I voraciously needed to read a book as entertaining as Catching Fire. More »

Cee Lo Booed & Cut Off On Stage At Coachella
Day 1 of The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was not a very good one for singer Cee Lo Green.

Fans in the audience, very upset with Cee Lo‘s unprofessional tardiness, were reportedly very happy to express their “fuck you”s as Cee Lo left the stage. More »

Jessica Simpson, who appeared in a sharing mood yesterday, posted a fun photo on her official Twitter profile that showed off her many moods and personalities.

Financial Woes That Threatened to Kill the Franchise Have Been Averted
Back in 2009, it was reported that the MGM film studio was going bankrupt and in an attempt to pay back their debt they were close to losing the movie rights to the James Bond film franchise (which is already 20+ films long). Because of the studio’s financial woes, there was no chance that a new film (a follow-up to the last Bond film, 2008′s Quantum of Solace) would be made … until now. The LA Times reports this week that MGM struck up a deal with Sony Pictures to move forward with the 23rd and 24th James Bond films … the first of which is now scheduled to hit theaters in late 2012. Bond lives, y’all! More »

Not Hot Rod
Lady Gaga unveiled the official artwork for her upcoming new album Born This Way late last night on her official Twitter profile just hours after her new single Judas first leaked to the Internets and then was officially released on iTunes for sale. Gaga teased the cover artwork by tweeting, “Get your hot rods ready to rumble, cause’ we’re gonna drink until we die.”- HIGHWAY UNICORN (ROAD TO LOVE), which I presume is a lyric from a new song. It turns out the “hot rods” part was meant to clue folks in that the cover artwork for Born This Way would have a motorcycle theme. Check it out below. More »

Glee break-out star Darren Criss, who plays Kurt‘s boyfriend Blaine Anderson, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Billboard magazine.

Last night, David and I attended a performance of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center in downtown LA and I am happy to report that the show was utterly and powerfully incredible.

Taymor's Vision of the Show Will Peace Out this Weekend
Early last month we learned that famed director Julie Taymor had been fired from her show Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark due to numerous cast injuries and across-the-board terrible reviews. Just a couple weeks after that news broke, lead actress T.V. Carpio was injured so severely during a performance that she had to leave the show, adding to the already long list of actors injured by the show. Today we learn that Taymor‘s vision of the show, the one that cost $70 million to produce, will end entirely this weekend. After the final shows play this weekend, Turn Off the Dark will close for 3 weeks so that the entire show can be overhauled. Without question, the end of Taymor‘s vision of the Spider-Man mythos will be the greatest failure of her career. More »
