Dad’s Day

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit but, because it was my dad’s birthday, it was the whole reason I flew back to Michigan in the first place. Because my parent’s are getting more advanced in age, I am trying to be home for their birthdays … even tho my dad’s birthday is always in the dead of Michigan winter. They can’t really fly out to see me in sunny LA so I’m happy to make the trip back home. My best friends Sarah and Mark joined in the birthday dinner we had for my dad and a great time was had by all. I did get to spend a bit of time with my friends before I had to make my way back to the airport and back home to LA. More »

‘U Can’t Touch This’ By MC Hammer Is 25 Years Old

January 13, 1990
"This is a beat U can't touch"

I know it’s not #ThrowbackThursday yet but I feel it is my duty to inform you that MC Hammer‘s biggest hit, U Can’t Touch This, is 25 years old. The song was released on January 13, 1990 and it immediately became a worldwide smash, catapulting MC Hammer into the stratosphere of fame and fortune. Unfortunately, due to a series of really bad decisions, MC Hammer lost both the fame and the fortune he amassed from his music career that started with the monster success of U Can’t Touch This but the song remains a smash. Click the embed above to watch the 25 year old music video for U Can’t Touch This and let’s celebrate a quarter century of Hammer Pants :)

Britney Spears’s Debut Album ‘…Baby One More Time’ Turns Sweet 16

Released January 12, 1999

16 years ago today, the world was blessed with the debut album …Baby One More Time by our dear Britney Spears and the pop music landscape was changed forever. Almost immediately, Britney stormed the charts and our hearts with an album that contained 5 hit singles that burned their way into our hearts and minds and firmly established herself as the new princess of pop. Since that fateful day, Britney has released follow-up albums that have enjoyed success on their own (her sophomore album Oops! I Did It Again still holds the record for the most albums sold in its first week of release by any female artist) but it all goes back 16 years ago to the release of Baby. Click below to join me in celebrating the sweet 16th birthday of Britney‘s debut album. More »

Yes, Blue Ivy is 3 years old!

Blue Ivy, the only begotten child of megastars Beyoncé and Jay Z, was born three years ago which means a celebration is in order.

Día De Reyes

The TV Guide

Altho I just spent a really fun day with friends at Disneyland on Sunday, I had to return to the theme park yesterday to partake in the annual Dia de Reyes celebration that they do for guests because I’ve never experienced the celebration before in my life. Growing up in the Midwest, I missed out on a lot of culturally Mexican celebrations that I am now exposed to living here in Southern California. For some time now, I’ve heard about Dia de Reyes but I’ve never partaken in any of the celebrations before. I figure if Disneyland throws a party for the holiday, it might be worth checking out. I met up with my friend Elena at the park last night so that we could attend the parade/party together and we ended up having a blast together. More »

Birthday Drinks With Jeremy

The TV Guide

Last night was mostly a quiet night for me. I had intended on staying in the whole night but because my friend Jeremy wanted to get the jumpstart on celebrating his birthday with a get together on the night before his birthday, I decided to get out of the house so that I could celebrate with him. Jeremy is Tamar’s younger brother and he’s really a great guy. Tam’s family are all so special to me that it is always a pleasure to spend time with them in any capacity for any reason. Jeremy invited a group of friends to meet up with him at The Daily Pint in Santa Monica so that’s where we went to get the party started. More »

Britney Spears Helped New Boyfriend Charlie Ebersol Celebrate His 32nd Birthday With Horseback Riding, Cake & More!

Birthday Lurve

I’d say that things are coming along very nicely for Britney Spears and her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol these days. Altho it appears that that silly rumor that the couple got engaged on Xmas is nothing but hogwash, Spebersol continue to move their relationship forward in a happy direction. For his birthday this week, Britney treated Charlie to an afternoon of horseback riding and when it came down to the actual celebrating of his birthday, Britney presented him with ONLY the coolest birthday cake ever. So while the couple may not be headed down the aisle anytime soon (which is a good thing), they do seem to moving in the direction of happily ever after. More »
