There have been a lot of Grammy stories today, as to be expected… and here is one more for ya. There are a few reports going around about Katy Perry’s performance last night because her new song (which was leaked a few months ago) seemed to be a direct reference to her divorce from Russell Brand. The song, and performance, did appear to be an empowerment anthem, in what was her first performance on TV since they split. Watch the performance again and notice the lyrics this time…it is a very timely release. Girl power or girl damaged? More »
Yesterday turned out to be a pretty nice day, I have to say, thanks to the company of a few of my beloved friends. It’s no secret that I’ve been pretty bummed out over the death of Whitney Houston but getting to spend time with my friends yesterday really did a lot to make me feel better … and make me realize how lucky I really am. David and I enjoyed a nice brunch with Darion yesterday afternoon and then last night, we were part of a bowling surprise party for our dear friend Josh. More »

We have been seeing pics of the beautiful mom-to-be, Jennifer Garner, almost weekly. Last we saw gorgeous pics of Jen out and about in L.A. with her beau, Ben Affleck. Jen is still very much pregnant, but by the looks of things, she is getting very close to the end. Also… I have a feeling that it could be RIGHT around the corner given that she has stopped into the spa for a mani and pedi – a very typical birth prep activity for expecting mommas who want to look their best when baby comes, and who can no longer reach their toes. Check out the very adorable pics of Jen with her girls, Seraphina and Violet Affleck getting their nails done on the weekend… More »
It has been all about the Grammy’s over here, but over in our European counterparts there has been another big awards show, The BAFTAS, which stands for The British Film and Television Arts Awards. These trophies were also handed out yesterday, and are a good predictor for which stars could take home the coveted Oscar trophies in just a couple of weeks. The big standout from the U.K. awards was clearly, The Artist, which had a whopping 12 nominations. We have come to expect this from the silent black-and-white film…. but will the Academy agree with all the hype? Last night they received Best Film, took home awards for best director, screenplay, cinematography, music and costume design. Leading man, Jean Dujardin, also nabbed the award for Leading Actor. Do you think this is what will happen come Oscar night? More »
