Eminem and Bruno Pull a Fast One On Us!

What is it about Beyonce and her song, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)” and video that the famous boy celebrities just can’t stop spoofing it? First it was Justin Timberlake on SNL, and now Joe Jonas shows his fully uni-tard clad figure along with a pair if stilettos, spoofing the song. The Jonas Brothers are getting the fans all hyped up for the release of their newest album, which drops June 16th, “Lines Vines and Trying Times”. The video is pretty cute, starting out with a very shy Joe hiding behind his brother but then look out, he goes for it. Beyonce just can’t help getting everyone going. Check out the video on YouTube.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are all over the news today. Let’s start with the big news…Angie topped Oprah for the # 1 spot on “Forbes Most Powerful 100 Celebrities” issue. Angie came in #1. Earnings as well as fame decide the ranking. While Angie did earn a whopping $27 million it was nowhere near the $275 million that Oprah grossed in 2008. Oprah did not fall far though, she still is ranked the 2nd most powerful celebrity. Madonna came in 3rd (her most recent tour and income earned her a cool $110 million, 4th was Beyonce, and Tiger Woods came in 5th, which was down from his #2 spot last year.  Some newcomers to the list this year were Barack Obama #49, Tobey Keith at #59, Taylor Swift at #69 and Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock came in at #91. Congratulations to all.  Back to other Brangelina news…. A rep for the couple has come out denying any break up rumors of the famous couple. The two were just recently seen out together in Cannes at the film festival and are doing fine. The two are very busy with Pitt promoting his new movie, “Inglourious Basterds” and Angie has been working on her new movie, “Salt”.  Brad is all starting work on his new movie “Moneyball”, which is based on the book “Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game”. It’s a baseball movie that is about the Oakland Athletics team. The film is being directed by Steven Soderbergh and the movie will be out sometime in 2011. All good news for the Jolie – Pitt crew. I have to say I am glad the rumors are false because with the whole “Jon and Kate Plus 8” saga, I just don’t think I could take the breakup of Brad and Angie as well.
And speaking of rumors… LeAnn Rimes is being accused of stalking Eddie Cibrian, who it has been alleged that she is having an affair with.  The stalking allegations come directly from Cibrians wife. Rimes says the accusation is “incredibly defamatory” and she plans to “take the high road” and she is not going to sink to that level. She is not going to battle this out with the media but rather try and respect theses 2 families and hopefully work it out amongst themselves. She is currently trying to work on her own marriage.

 The truth is out in respect to the whole Bruno – Eminem escapade. As many believed the whole incident was completely staged. Eminem said “After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours. Especially after I saw it on the air.” Eminem says he is a big fan of Sacha Baron Cohen and when he called him with the idea he was totally on board. He says, “I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better then we rehearsed it.” Nice job guys you definitely had everyone talking with that one!!   

MTV Movie Awards Drama

Just as I predicted, there was definitely a bit of excitement when it came to Eminem and the “MTV Movie Awards” last night. Eminem actually walked out of the awards show after a run in with Bruno, the gay Australian fashion reporter (a.k.a. Sacha Baron Cohen) who after flying through the air landed right on Eminem with his backside wrapped around Eminem’s face. Well, you can imagine that did not go over very well and Eminem had a few choice words to say and stormed out. Somehow controversy just seems to surround those two. Before the incident Eminem did a very good medley of two songs from his new album “Relapse” which was quite entertaining. Besides Eminem, “Twilight” really rocked the house with the most awards. It won “Best Movie”, Kristen Stewart won “Best Female Performance”, Robert Pattinson won for “Breakthrough Performance for a Male” and “Best Kiss” also went to the pair Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.  In addition “Twilight” also won for “Best Fight” between Robert Pattinson and Cam Gigandet. There were even a few other winners for the night. My favorite MTV award nights are when Jim Carrey wins and give his always amusing acceptance speech and this year he won for “Best Comedic Performance” – of course. Heath Ledger won for “Best Villain” and funny girl Amy Poehler won for “Best WTF Moment” for Peeing in the Sink in her movie, “Baby Mama”. And no award show seems to be complete these days without Miss Miley Cyrus and she won “Best Song” for “The Climb” from “Hannah Montana: The Movie”. Funny man Ben Stiller won the “Generation Award” for the evening and he so deserves it, he is pretty great!! So as always MTV delivered a funny and entertaining and never quite know what to expect kind of evening.

The new cast of “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” has been announced. Sadly this show could run year round. Heading up the cast fresh off “Celebrity Apprentice “is Dennis Rodman, and I have to admit I will tune in for him alone. He was unbelievable on that show and I am surprised that he signed up for this. I cannot even picture him sober through the average day. Dennis will have company though, and those will include someone who desperately seems to need Dr. Drew’s help and that is Miss in and out of rehab and trouble, country singer Mindy McCready, as well as Heidi Fleiss, Mackenzie Phillips from “One Day at a Time”, actor, Tom Sizemore, Lisa D’Amato from “America’s Next Top Model”, Mike Starr from Alice in Chains, Kari Ann Peniche who is a Playboy model, and Joey Kovar from MTV’s “Real World”. I think Dr. Drew has his work cut out for him during this 21 day star studded recovery program. The show will return for its 3rd season sometime early next year.
Bad news for Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz, and his New York City Bar which has been closed down temporarily due to allegedly serving minors alcohol. The bar Angels & Kings hopes it is just temporary and they are working to correct the problem. IT is the bars 3rd citation, but the previous 2 citations have already been thrown out of court. The bar has been open a little over 2 years and Wentz is a joint owner.

Susan Boyle is taking some well needed rest after being admitted to the hospital on Sunday for exhaustion. One of the judges from the show, Piers Morgan says she is doing fine but just needed to get away from it all and have a good rest. Her world really has been turned upside down and after the disappointment of not winning just needed some time and who could blame the 48 year old who was instantly thrown into the limelight at warp speed. Rest up Susan and come and sing for us again soon.
