Scent of a Diva: Mariah Talks Fragrance to People

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Mariah Carey has topped the pop charts for almost two decades, and now she's setting out to conquer the fragrance world with her first signature scent, M by Mariah. With the fragrance just hitting shelves, Mariah chatted a little about the process of making a scent with PEOPLE. Buy the fragrance for yourself, $63 at elizabetharden.com.

What was it like collaborating with Elizabeth Arden?
"It was so much fun working with Elizabeth Arden. I mean, I never expected such a huge corporation to feel like a family. and that's what it feels like to me. Like every time I work with them, they're so welcoming in terms of the concepts. If I have an idea or something that inspires me, there's never a time where they've been like 'No, we hate that.' Every single person from Arden has been fabulous."

Did you tell them what your favorite scents were?
"Before I went there, I told them some of my favorite smells, and I described the Tiare flower - and they actually knew what it was. They had never used it as a base for any person before. When I got there, there was this huge board of all the things that I said that I loved. The thing about the blue grotto, Capri, and just all these references that I had given them. The sunset. It looked like it was a done finished thing. I didn't realize how next level it was going to be. It was really amazing."

So then you went back and forth with the perfumers? Did it take a couple of tries?
Well, we went to a few different perfumers and every time we would test a different fragrance. It was very similar to writing and recording a song for me. And not everybody realizes that I write my own songs - and they definitely don't realize that I produce them. It's a process that I'm really used to. They have told me that no one has been this involved in creating their own fragrance before. So I was like 'Oh, that's cool.'"

Where do you spray the perfume?
What I do is I spray it - and then walk into it.On Jack Jack

Scarlett Johansson to star in Frank Miller’s 'The Spirit'



Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation) is in final negotiations to star as the femme fatale in Frank Miller’s (Sin City, 300) big screen adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. Johansson has also signed on to star in Mary Queen of Scots and Into You, but who really cares?

Johansson will play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss, a character that THR describes as “a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct that makes her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.” It appears that the character was created for the film adaptation and will probably be a combination of characters from the comic series.

I’ve been less than impressed with Johansson lately (yes, I just saw The Nanny Diaries), and it’s a shame because I use to love everything she did. I’m not quite sure if she’s putting less effort into her roles, or if she is growing out of her looks with age (let me clarify: she is obviously still very attractive, but not as attractive as a few years ago. May-be her looks blinded us from her inabilities as an actress, and only now are we noticing?) One thing is for sure, Eisner’s comic strip has women with curves, and Johansson certainly fits that bill.

The Spirit follows a detective (Gabriel Macht) who fakes his own death in order to fight crime in Central City as the masked avenger. Frank Miller will start shooting the flick in October for a late 2009 release.

Amy Winehouse's fella Blake Fielder-Civil has spoken out for the first time against rumours he is the reason for the singer's downfall.

Fielder-Civil said that he wanted to help Winehouse beat her addictions.

He told The Mirror today (August 17): "Everyone thinks that everything that's happened to Amy is my fault and I'm portrayed as the bad guy. But I just want everyone to know that I love her so so much.

"She's so precious to me, she's my wife and I want to take care of her -that's why I'm taking her back to rehab."

Well, if rumours are to believed, only after a few swift ones at their local.

Video runner/assistant/serial pork pie hat wearer Blake said: "If we were going to send a message to Amy's fans we would say don't worry, she's being looked after. We're going back to this retreat. Amy's fine.

"The reports about Amy and drugs aren't true to that magnitude."

Foxx takes homeless musician role

Jamie Foxx



Actor Jamie Foxx is to star in a film based on the true story of a homeless musician with schizophrenia who dreams of playing the Disney Concert Hall.

The Soloist is adapted from a series of articles by journalist Steve Lopez, who met violinist Nathaniel Anthony Ayers on the streets of Los Angeles in 2005.

It marks Foxx's return to the musical biopic genre after his Oscar-winning portrayal of Ray Charles in 2004.

British director Joe Wright is making the film, says the Hollywood Reporter.

His previous film credits include Pride and Prejudice and the forthcoming Ian McEwan adaptation Atonement, both starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy.

Lily Allen's Greatest Look

22-year-old Lily Allen left a London nightclub last night in a plastic bag. She climbed into a shopping bag and made her friends carry her fat ass 50-yards to her car. How the bag didn't break is beyond me. Lily is supposed to be sick. At least that's what she said was the reason for cancelling several of her European gigs.

Hmph, I was kind of hoping if she was going to do another ballad, it would have been 'Wonderful Life', but I love 'Early Winter', so I'm happy either way. I do think it's a little weird hearing about a 5th single when the video for 'Now That You Got It' hasn't even premiered yet.

I really wish she'd make 'Yummy' a single if only for the music video. She could make the CUTEST video for 'Yummy'.

Criss Angel: Britney and I Are 'Not Together'

Criss Angel is helping prepare Britney Spears for a possible MTV Video Music Awards performance, and their relationship is purely professional, the illusionist tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"It's amazing what people think," Angel said Friday. "We're not together. Her manager is my manager, and I'm helping with one of her shows. I'm helping with her appearance on MTV."

Rumors flew after the Las Vegas-based Angel, 39, was spotted with Spears, 25, in Los Angeles in recent days, meeting with her and her friends at a restaurant and going with her into a hotel.

Acknowledging the Wednesday night dinner he and Spears shared at Cravings in West Hollywood, Angel said, "Yes, I'm here working on some stuff, and we went to that restaurant with 10 people."

Says Angel: "We were talking about how she wants to do something more with the [awards] show, and about me helping out and hoping to work with her on doing something to make her MTV appearance more innovative."

Spears has been in talks to perform at the Sept. 9 show at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Neither MTV nor Spears's reps have confirmed whether she'll appear.

"It's amazing how you can't do anything now without people making up stuff," adds Angel.

"I promise you: I'll never release an album!" Lauren tells In Touch. "I don't really have very many talents! I'm okay with it, though.

Nicole Richie Is One Smart Cookie




The NY Post is claiming that Nicole Richie has told Joel Madden not to take any pictures with female fans or celebrities. Why you ask? So the tabloids can’t print untrue stories of infedility. I guess she wants to minimize her stress during her pregnancy.


NICOLE Richie knows how rumors get started, so she’s nipping in the bud any chance of wicked whispers about her and boyfriend Joel Madden being on the outs. Wednesday night, Madden went to celebrate the first anniversary of the Village Pourhouse on Third Avenue, and all was well until a party promoter wanted to take a picture of him with a cute young woman.

Lindsay Lohan Works Hard For The Beef Jerky



The rewards are soooooooooo random at the rehab center where Lindsay Lohan is staying. The Cirque Lodge offers their guests Gatorade and beef jerky for a job well done. This rehab sounds like the real deal. There are meditation sessions, morning hikes and chores that all guests (celebrity or not) must participate in. If Lindsay is going to find herself, this would be the place to do it.

She may be out of the spotlight, but Lindsay Lohan is still keeping busy. The 21-year-old party girl hardly has any downtime these days, courtesy of her round-the-clock schedule from Cirque Lodge, according to The Insider. LiLo’s days start with a morning hike, meditation, breakfast and chores — all before 9 a.m. After meetings, workshops and recovery programs, there’s only an hour and a half of free time left on the daily roster, The Insider reports. And if she fails to participate in Lodge activities, she’ll lose privileges. In the world of rehab, that includes such luxuries as Gatorade and beef jerky.

Jessica will have to wear a bandage around it for the rest of filming.

Victims husband:Brandy Has No Business Partying!

At least that's what the husband of the woman who died in a car accident involving Brandy thinks. The lawyer for Marquane Hdidou told TMZ that his client is extremely upset that he opens up magazines and sees Brandy partying while he's mourning the death of his wife.

A judge also allowed Marquane Hdidou, his wife's two kids from a previous marriage, her parents and a woman also involved in the car accident to combine their lawsuits into one. They are seeking cash from Brandy. They will all meet up in court this January. No criminal charges have been filed against 10-head.

Marquane should spend less time reading InTouch Weekly and more time crying and mourning his wife or whatever. He seriously expects Brandy to lay down and cry at home? He needs to get off the damn cross. He'll get his money, he just has to be patient and hope Brandy gets another job soon.

Zac Efron to star in "Big" Remake

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's official! Zac Efron has committed himself to a new romantic relationship. This time, it's his first leading-man role in New Line's fast-tracked love story, Seventeen. Capitalizing on the back-to-back successes of the big-screen musical Hairspray and small-screen sensation High School Musical, Efron finalized negotiations yesterday to headline the Big-like dramedy in which a 36-year-old man, in need of a major life do-over, wakes up in the body of a studly high school senior (Efron).

Efron had been in talks to make the film since February. The role reunites the HSM heartthrob with his Hairspray director, Adam Shankman, who is producing (but not helming) along with his sister, Jennifer Gibgot. ''It's a very multilayered role, which is what attracted Zac to this idea,'' says Gibgot, who has been working with Efron to shape the role that could expand Efron's fanbase beyond the screaming tween crowd. ''It's a good transitional movie that will appeal to his audience and hopefully bring in more adults,'' she says. No director has been announced yet, but the producers hoped to have a commitment before the weekend.

The film could start shooting as early as November. This obviously raises questions about whether Efron, who's also in talks to do a remake of Footloose, will have time to make HSM3. Stay tuned... SOURCE

I hope I am not creating panic among 14 yr old girls (and Aurosan) that HSM3 may happen without Zac.

George Lucas Land?



Disney is renaming the Disney-MGM Theme Park in Orlando to Disney’s Hollywood Studio. But the park will not just be renamed, but restructured into different lands (almost like how Universal handles Islands of Adventure). According to Jim Hill, there are plans to increase George Lucas’ presence in Disney’s Hollywood Studios into an entire George Lucas Land that will stretch from the Indiana Jones Outpost to the Tatooine Traders.

At the heart of the revisited area will be Star Tours 2.0, complete with a brand-new 3D ride film as well as elements from Disney’s Living Character Initiative. Rumor has it that a scene or two from Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular might be replaced with new stunt sequences from the upcoming Indiana Jones 4.

OrlandoSentinel reported last month that the park will be adding a permanent new stage for the Star Wars Jedi Training Academy, which has been a popular seasonal feature of the Star Wars Weekends. The new Jedi Stage will cover a large patio area outside the Star Tours attraction, and will contain a tech booth and a permanent backdrop. The show features costumed Jedi characters who select children out of the audience to train with lightsabers. Later in the show, Darth Vader shows up with a bunch of stormtroopers. The show will start this fall with up to 8 shows per day.

The movie props in the Backlot Express eatery will be replaced with replicas of well-known costumes & vehicles from various Lucasfilm productions. There are plans for an Indiana Jones themed room, in addition to a Star Wars themed room.

The new Jedi Academy will be taking up a huge plot of land, so I doubt there will be any room to add additional attractions. But you never know. According to Hill, this will be officially announced in 2008, with plans to go live in 2009 - the 20th anniversary of the theme park.

Lindsay Lohan's Parents Reach Divorce Settlement



As expected, Michael and Dina Lohan White Oprah reached a settlement in their contentious divorce on Friday, avoiding a public trial.

"Mr. and Mrs. Lohan, you have both demonstrated to me extraordinarily good judgment in resolving the matter as you did," Judge Robert Ross told Lindsay's parents.

John DiMascio, Jr., Michael's attorney, says he expects the divorce to be final in about 90 days, depending upon how quickly the divorce documents are filed and then processed by the court.

"Now the healing process can begin for my children and myself," Dina said as she left the Mineola, N.Y., court. When asked how Lindsay is doing, she said, "fantastic."

All of the couple's differences, however, are not completely settled. Dina and Michael will meet again in family court on Sept. 6 to work on "pending issues, custody and parental access to the children," DiMascio told PEOPLE.

A psychologist who already has met with Michael, Dina and their two younger offspring, Ali and Cody, will also then make his recommendations concerning the children. "Hopefully, we'll be able to resolve that one with the same efficacy as this one," said DiMascio of Friday's agreement, terms of which remain confidential.

The couple's older children, Lindsay Lohan, 21, and her brother Michael, 19, are no longer minors and, therefore, not under the purview of family court.

Michael and Dina, who had married in 1985, agreed to a separation in 2005. About two months ago, ago, Dina requested that the separation be finalized with divorce, which Michael had not granted until Friday.

In terms of visitation rights, Michael has not seen Cody and Ali in more than three years. "But [by Sept. 6] I should have met with them," he told PEOPLE. Michael added that he is moving legally to keep Dina's boyfriend, Jim McMillan, from his children. "That," he said, "will be part of the agreement.

On Aug. 3, Michael's attorney sent Dina and her legal team a letter that claimed Dina's "inebriated" boyfriend was living with her and the children at the Lohans' home in Merrick, N.Y.

The letter further demanded that the co-habitation cease.

NY Times reviews High School Musical 2, another excuse to post a Zac Efron picture



There’s only so much cutesiness a sane adult can stand close-up, even given how bitter that adult inevitably sounds when bashing a successful commercial venture. Hating a phenomenon like “High School Musical” no longer makes you appear tasteful. It makes you seem stupid, as if you hated all of market capitalism, or all winners.

And indeed there’s much to admire as the blockbuster Disney concept returns with a sequel tonight. “High School Musical 2,” after all, offers sincere consolation for those perplexed by America’s YouTube youth. It’s a wonderful throwback, a candy-colored song-and-dance extravaganza set among teenagers for whom A.D.D. is rhythm and early-onset puberty is romantic comedy.

But, come on, there’s also so much to hate. Just search the bottom of your shriveled little sunless heart. You’ll figure it out. The widespread pressure to embrace the experience as kitsch only twists the knife. This is supposed to be the time of your life, and yet — oh brother. Just like high school. Just like a musical.

“High School Musical,” the first one, was a television movie that blindsided programmers when it caught on like mono. One of the most-watched premieres of Disney Channel original movies (200 million people worldwide are said to have seen the film), it also engendered a stage version, a concert tour and an album that was last year’s No. 1 CD.

Over the last 20 months the uninitiated have scratched their heads at the idea of a high-fructose “Grease” set in Paris Hilton’s America, while parents and kids have defended “High School Musical” as harmless, catchy and even salubrious, especially for the way it allegedly sexes up schoolwork. (The romantic heroine, Gabriella Montez, played by Vanessa Hudgens, gets A’s in math and science.)

The movie is mediocre, and should be skipped. But I can’t wait to buy the soundtrack and do the karaoke.

How Heroes' Ali Larter Became Bollywood's It Girl


While Heroes' Niki cools her jets this summer, her portrayer can be seen in a very different and certainly less intense role. In the romantic comedy Marigold, now in theaters, Ali Larter plays the title character, a real brat of a B-list actress whose credits include such suspect sequels as "Indecent Proposal 2," "Fatal Attraction 3" and even "Apollo 14." When Marigold's snarkiness finds her stranded in Bombay, it's off to Bollywood — and into the arms of one of the genre's dreamiest leading men. TVGuide.com spoke with Larter about her big-screen lark, and pressed her for scoop on Niki's next heroic adventure.

TVGuide.com: Let's be a bit introspective: Is this the same Ali Larter I spoke to a year ago? Following all this Heroes hoopla?
Ali Larter: Absolutely, absolutely. I love our show, and it has been such an amazing opportunity for me. In this industry we go through so many ebbs and flows, and right now I'm at this great place where I love working on the show and people are responding to it, I have movies coming out that were amazing journeys for me....

In the sequel, Tisdale practically steals the show..


Ashley and Lucas FTW! another HSM post, but with no Efron pics in sight!
Let's all talk about Lucas and Ashley. ^_^

If ever a television show was totally and utterly critic-proof, it's "High School Musical 2."
No matter what anyone writes about the sequel to last year's monster hit, millions of viewers - largely but not entirely 'tweens - will flock to Friday's premiere (8 p.m., Disney) and probably to the repeat showings Saturday and Sunday as well. Still, as New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood said in a recent (and somewhat snarky) review of the stage version of "HSM," "new religions do not arise every day, so serious note should be taken when a belief moves from cult status to bona fide faith."

Those perplexed by the original's success, who found it cringe-inducing vanilla pap with no grip on the realities of high school, won't find anything to change that opinion in the sequel.

The kids of East High School still are living in a world not far removed from the days of "The Donna Reed Show." It's a little more diverse, but the school's students are apparently the only ones in this country who don't brush up against premarital sex, drugs or racial conflict. Collapse )

'Daily Show' to air reports from Iraq

By FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer 1 hour, 45 minutes ago

NEW YORK - "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," whose phony news coverage has long included phony "remotes" from war-torn Iraq, will be reporting from Iraq for real next week.

Giving its green screen a temporary rest, the Comedy Central series will air "Operation Silent Thunder: `The Daily Show' in Iraq," several onsite dispatches filed by Senior War Correspondent Rob Riggle.

Riggle will provide what the network calls "in-depth coverage and insights from the front lines." Scheduled to be back in New York this weekend, he begins his reports as soon as Monday. ("The Daily Show" airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EDT.)

While in Iraq, Riggle performed for U.S. troops with fellow comedians Horatio Sanz, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer as part of an entertainment tour titled "Operation Feel the Heat."

Besides "The Daily Show," Riggle's credits include "Saturday Night Live," "The Office" and "Arrested Development." A major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, he served in Liberia, Kosovo and Afghanistan.

RYAN VS JAKE. IT'S ON!


Ryan Phillippe hasn’t exactly offered a warm welcome to ex Reese Witherspoon’s off-again, on-again guy, Jake Gyllenhaal, 26.

“Ryan is pissed about Jake,” a Phillippe insider tells Us Weekly, adding that Phillippe, 32, told Witherspoon, 31, “he didn’t want ‘that guy’ around their kids [son Deacon, 3, and daughter Ava, 7] and then made some crude Brokeback Mountain remark.” However, a Gyllenspoon source tells Us that "Reese doesn't have Jake spend the night when the kids are around." And though the actor may be angry that Witherspoon is moving on, his feelings for Aussie actress Abbie Cornish, 25, are less conflicted.

Phillippe was seeing his Stop Loss costar at the time of his split from Witherspoon last October (his rep denied any relationship), and while the twosome seemed to cool after his marriage broke up, a source close to the couple tells Us, “They have been hanging out [again] since June.” On August 5, the pair were seen strolling together in L.A.’s Franklin Canyon Park. “They were laughing,” says an onlooker, “and obviously enjoying themselves.”

IJAF!! Rich Cronin talks about his number being leaked

Here's a lil snippet:



So do you ever like go to message boards or anything and read things about yourself, or do you try to stay away from that whole vibe?

I’ve been doing that a lot lately because there’s a lot of stuff about me on the internet right now. And, um, you know, I don’t even know where it all started, but it’s like, it got pretty personal with me because they gave out my phone number and all my personal information.

Oh my gosh!

It got pretty ridiculous.

No kidding.

Yeah, and um, I just had to have my phone shut off yesterday. There was like a blogger site or whatever and there were thousands and thousands of entries about me in one day. I actually broke a record for this blogger site for the most comments and it crashed a few times. All negative, too. I can’t tell you how it feels to just sit there and read endless negative things, but these people are psycho, so I don’t worry about it.

Well, the people who really matter are too busy to sit on the internet all day writing bad things about people.

That’s how it goes. Some of these sites are really sick, like LiveJournal and everything.



LOL @ him not mentioning ONTD in particular. Say our name bitch!!!

**EDIT** I posted the infamous email behind the cut just for old times sake bbs

Jordan talks more about sex and hubby's nether regions

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The glamour model - real name Katie Price - loves getting steamy with husband Peter Andre in the tub, but the couple have to plan their romps with military precision so they aren't caught by their children.

Jordan - who has two children with Peter, new baby daughter Princess Tiaamii and two-year-old son Junior, and a son, five-year-old Harvey, from her relationship with soccer star Dwight Yorke - revealed: "We get in the bath together a lot!

"But we have to plan sex really carefully. With kids it's always hard as one of them could walk in, and then you're like, 'Arggh!' "

The busty star has also revealed that Peter's private parts are completely free of pubic hair, so he is clean for lovemaking.

She said: "Pete even shaves his a***hole. Well, doesn't shave it, but uses Veet to make it go bald. He's very clean down there, like a baby."

Jordin Sparks Inks Record Deal

by Sarah Hall
Fri, 17 Aug 2007 12:15:19 PM PDT


Jordin Sparks has jumped to Jive.

The youngest ever American Idol winner has inked a recording contract with 19Recordings/Jive Records, it was announced Friday.

The deal makes her the first alum of the talent competition to sign with the Zomba Label Group. All past Idol winners have inked deals with the RCA Label Group's Arista (Taylor Hicks, Carrie Underwood), J (Fantasia Barrino, Ruben Studdard) or RCA (Kelly Clarkson) labels.

"We're thrilled to welcome the partnership with 19 Recordings and Jordin Sparks as the first Idol winner to make her home at Jive," Barry Weiss, CEO and president of Zomba Label Group, said in a statement. "Her poise, her amazing vocal ability, her relentless optimism has been apparent to millions of fans all around the world. We're honored to have this burgeoning worldwide superstar on Jive Records."

The 17-year-old vocal powerhouse's first single, "Tattoo," will be released on U.S. radio on Aug. 27, while her debut album is due in stores in November.

"Tattoo" was produced by Stargate, the duo behind hits for Beyoncé and Neo, and was cowritten by Amanda Ghost, whose credits include James Blunt's "Beautiful."

With her career off and running, Sparks said she is looking forward to producing more music for her fans.

"American Idol has truly been a life-altering experience," Sparks said. "Signing with 19 Recordings/Jive and Barry Weiss and his great team is hopefully the beginning of another dream opportunity for me to deliver the kind of meaningful music I love. I can't wait to share this next chapter of my story with all the fans that have supported me so far."

American Idol creator Simon Fuller expressed his belief that Sparks had made a wise choice.

"You couldn't find a better match in or out of this business than Jive Records, 19 Recordings and Jordin Sparks," he said.

Sparks was crowned the winner of the sixth season of American Idol on May 23, beating out beat-boxer Blake Lewis for the title and securing herself a million-dollar record deal.

She is currently performing with the other top 10 finalists on the Idols Live tour. The trek wraps up Sept. 22 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Meanwhile, auditions for the seventh season of American Idol are in full swing, with tryouts already completed in San Diego, Dallas and Omaha so far. Up next, the aspiring singers of Charleston, South Carolina, will do their best to impress the judges and make their way through to the next round.

FOB Fall Tour News



Fall Out Boy: Monsters Of Rock? Band's Tour To Have 'Where The Wild Things Are' Theme



Fall Out Boy are breaking out the Wild Thing on their fall tour — but they're leaving Tone-Loc at home (and Charlie Sheen, a.k.a. "Major League" pitcher Rick Vaughn, too).

Rather, their upcoming arena tour — with Gym Class Heroes, the Plain White T's and Cute Is What We Aim For — will be influenced not only by Maurice Sendak's classic children's book "Where the Wild Things Are" but also the new breed of Hollywood Wild Things — the Lindsays, Britneys and Parises of the world.

Yeah, we don't understand it either. But FOB bassist Pete Wentz insists it all makes sense.

" 'Where the Wild Things Are' is a great narrative," he told MTV News. "It encapsulates pretty much every FOB song ever written: You know, tantrums and monster islands and all. And it's kind of a takeoff on the idea of young wild things wearing Dior ankle-monitoring bracelets."

The tour, which will go by the handle the "Young Wild Things Tour," will kick off October 18 at the Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio and crisscross the country until December 2. The full itinerary will be announced shortly through FOB's Web site, FallOutBoyRock.com.

Though Wentz isn't exactly sure how Sendak's images will be incorporated into the band's stage show, he did say that artist Rob Dobi will be lending a helping hand. And, though it seems rather clichéd to say, Wentz is fulfilling a lifelong dream to launch a tour under the Sendak banner.

"When I was a kid, I wanted to be ['Wild Things' pint-size protagonist] Max when I grew up, which was insane because he was another kid," he said. "I think every parent should read this story to their kid. ... I'm so excited to see [Spike Jonze's upcoming] adaptation of the book. I've only seen one picture but it was stunning. The movie is a long time coming."

Of course, it wouldn't be a Fall Out Boy story if there weren't at least one genuinely baffling moment. This one comes in the form of a potential opening act for the tour: frog-voiced, impeccably postured Internet celebrity Tay Zonday, he of "Chocolate Rain" fame (see " 'Chocolate Rain' Creator Talks Of Life Beyond His 15 Minutes Of Fame").

"I just think him and [FOB frontman] Patrick [Stump] doing a duet would be sweet," Wentz laughed. "Kind of like neither one of these dudes' bodies fit their voices, and it's awesome."

Pink's Brixton (London) Review


August 14th, 2007 - Saw Carling Brixton Academy welcome the amazingly talented Pink to perform her show in preparation for the upcoming summer festivals.

Brixton was heaving, with a mixed crowd of fans showing her large gay/lesbian following.

Kicking off the night with ‘Cuz I Can’, she got the crowd into a wild frenzy from the start. Strutting out onto the stage with a whip in hand she joined her band wearing boots, a feminine dress, fitted jacket and shades - exactly what you expect to see from Pink.

The set list covered tracks from her new album ‘I’m Not Dead’ such as the tongue in cheek ‘Stupid Girls’, the political ‘Dear Mr President’, ‘Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) and chart-topping ‘Who Knew’ as well as older tracks such as ‘Try Too Hard’, ‘My Vietnam’ and ‘Family Portrait’.

Pink also got to play homage to her idol Janis Joplin with a refreshing medley consisting of ‘Summertime’, ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ and ‘Piece of My heart’ and also a cover of 4 Non Blondes’ ‘What’s Going on?’

The show lasted around 90 minutes with everyone leaving the venue around 11pm hot and exhausted but satisfied that Pink is still able to put on an amazing show, even though she has been touring non-stop for over a year now.

Merv Griffin died a closeted homosexual

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By Ray Richmond Thu Aug 16, 11:49 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Merv Griffin was gay.


Why should that be so uncomfortable to read? Why is it so difficult to write? Why are we still so jittery even about raising the issue in purportedly liberal-minded Hollywood, in 2007?


Griffin, who died of prostate cancer Sunday at 82, stayed in the closet throughout his life. Perhaps he figured it was preferable to remain the object of gossip rather than live openly as "one of them."
