Sheryl + Lance = Forever

Crow, Armstrong Ready for Marriage

All Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong wanna do is have some fun--oh, and get hitched, too.

The two announced their pending nuptials on Monday, after Armstrong popped the question last week in Sun Valley, Idaho, where the couple was enjoying a mountain-biking vacation.

No wedding date has been set, though Armstrong's spokesman said the marriage would likely take place in the spring.

It will be the first trip down the aisle for Crow, who's previously been linked with Owen Wilson and Eric Clapton, and the second for Armstrong, who has three children from his previous marriage.

The seven-time Tour de France winner and the "If It Makes You Happy" singer began dating soon after meeting at a charity event in October 2003.

Armstrong, a testicular-cancer survivor, has been dogged by recent doping rumors, after a French newspaper reported that six of his urine samples collected after the 1999 Tour de France were found to contain traces of EPO, or erythropoietin, a banned performance enhancer. The cyclist has denied ever using the drug.

After taking home his seventh Tour de France victory this year, Armstrong, 33, declared himself officially retired from the sport.

While her fiancé may have hung up his helmet, Crow is keeping herself busy on the professional front.

The Grammy-winning crooner will release her fifth album, Wildflower, later this month and will hit the road for a limited tour of the U.S. and Europe, kicking off Oct. 16 in Seattle.

Crow, 43, revealed in a recent interview that the album's title track was inspired by Armstrong and his children.

"It's kind of a reminder, particularly when you look at his young children, how they gravitate to goodness and to light," Crow told Rolling Stone. "The idea of the song is that no matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of nowhere."

Crow is also slated to appear on the multinetwork telethon to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina on Friday and will tape an appearance for the MTV, VH1 and CMT hurricane benefit entitled ReAct Now: Music & Relief, which is scheduled to air Saturday.

I LOVE Sheryl and I think they are such a cute couple! I'm so happy for them :)

These are the same ones posted by hell_is_4_heros two posts down. Don't yell at me, I submitted it before she posted hers. I think there might be some different ones though.

Dominic Monaghan went from being a hobbit in "The Lord of the Rings" to a stranded rock star on ABC's "Lost," which comes out on DVD this week. Monaghan spoke to NEWSWEEK's Ramin Setoodeh.
This is the fifth time I've called. What were you doing?
I was surfing. [Murmuring in the background.]

Now it sounds like you're signing autographs.
Yeah. I'm in a DVD store.

Are you at least getting a discount?
Let me ask. The guy on the phone wants to know if you guys give me a discount. Now they're, like, flailing. She gave me $2 off on each DVD.

That's not very much.
I'm trying to be a nice guy. I can't scream at them. They're both very attractive women, so I can't say anything.

I want to know about the hatch on "Lost."
I don't know if I'm obliged to tell you. This show is such a crazy gamble—nothing really surprises me. If they opened up the hatch and it was a banana dancing with a pomegranate, I'd be like, "Oh. OK. That kind of makes sense."

It's good to hear that you're still on the island.
Come on, they can't kill Charlie. Are you crazy? I've told the writers, over and over again, if it's a great death—I don't want to die by any means—but if it's good for the story, I can deal with that.

"Lost" fans are the new Trekkies. They held a convention this summer.
I was in Europe, promoting the show, when it happened. But I'm into that. I'm a little aware of conventions because of the whole "Lord of the Rings" thing.

Do you read what they say online?
I check out all these scandalous rumors about me and Elijah Wood having beautiful sex with each other.

Are they true?
About Elijah and me being boyfriend and boyfriend? Absolutely true. We've been together for about nine years. I wooed him. No, I just like a lot of stuff—I like that someone says one thing and it becomes fact. It's kind of fun.


Uhm, is it just me or does he kinda seems like a total douchebag?

EDIT: Lolz, it's just me. :(

Hung Up leaks onto internet and impresses all

Hung Up leaks onto internet and impresses all

Two 14-second snippets from Madonna's new single "Hung Up" have leaked
onto the internet. It was just a matter of time.

Whether the leak was intentional or not, the leak has fans pleasantly
surprised, even with the already high expectations for the single and
album. Here is a sampling of some of the quotes from fans worldwide:

An infectious, radio-friendly track that reminds us of why she is and
always be the best.

This song will go to #1 and stay there.

Gotta love the ABBA sample.

It's good to see Madonna just going back to pure dance/pop that is just
free.. the Madonna that was like that years ago.

Fu**ing fun! Excuse the French. Can we say H-I-T?

Their are looking at actor Anthony Ray Parker, who played Dozer in the first matrix movie. Heres a link for the full story and a picture of the actor next to a pic of Bishop.. Excellent choice in my opinion.

you guys i was just laughing so hard i couldn't breathe at this

Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy's latest journal entry on Fueled By Ramen's website(

9/6/2005 - 12:57 PM EST
citing 'irreconcilable differences with myself'.
selling 50,000 records a week and i can't look in the mirror.
i am disappointed in myself.
i am disappointed in this.
and it should have been kept safe.
the reason we never told anyone is because we knew the world would ruin it. and at the end of the day it did.
the whispers never stopped.
i lied. so you lied.
and it made you crazy. and i'm sorry.
people pulled us apart. lured us. and you were my home.
it didn't matter what was said when our heads were on the sides of the pillows.
last night i dreamt it turned out differently.
i would stop this in a second and move to middle of nowhere with you and disappear.
it so hard to find someone who likes me for me and not because i am pete from fall out boy.
and i found them. and then watched it fade.
dear world, fuck you.

OK! Magazine in trouble?

Image hosted by

After just four issues, a $10 million ad campaign and a heavy drop in circulation, Richard Desmond's American version of OK! saw its first exec walk off the job.

Gone is publisher Gabriel "Gaby" Fireman on the heels of ad pages dropping from 20 at launch to just 10 in the most recent issues.

Having already spent $10 million of the $100 million (over six years) advertising campaign for the U.S. version of OK!, publisher Desmond is looking at dismal returns.

Desmond promised advertisers a 350,000 rate base but the celeb rag has been seriously underdelivering .. by as much as two-thirds. With two issues out so far, only about one-tenth of the 1.3 million copies printed have been picked up by those defecting from Star and Us Weekly.

Desmond's camp is remaining tight-lipped about how their title is actually performing and, unlike its paid-for coverage, claims those circ figures are entirely academic.


Guess all that advertising cash went to waste.
