Demi Lovato Announces Summer Tour

Disney’s new “it girl”, Demi Lovato is heading out on tour this summer, starting June 21st in Hartford Connecticut. If you don’t have kids you might not know who I am talking about but this 16 year old girl is the next Miley Cyrus. She currently stars in the new Disney channel show, “Sonny with a Chance” or you may know her from the show “Camp Rock” which she was in with fellow co – stars the Jonas Brothers. Demi is going to be quite a busy kid doing 47 shows this summer which is basically a different city every night. David Archuleta from the 7th season of “American Idol” will be her opening act and Jordan Pruitt and well as KSM will also be helping her out during the tour for special dates. Not bad summer plans for a 16 year old kid.

You know it must be time for,”Project Runway” to come back because Heidi Klum is pregnant again. I swear it seems like she is always pregnant during the show, and season 7, which will begin shooting this summer will be no different. So getting back to the facts…Heidi is pregnant with baby # 4. Talk about supermodel – supermom. Heidi and husband Seal, already have 2 sons together, Henry, 3 and Johan 2, and Heidi has a daughter, Leni 5, which Seal has adopted. Busy and beautiful – congratulations!

Yesterday I shared with you the news about Mel Gibson and his wife of 28 years going through what will probably be the most expensive Hollywood divorce to date, and today I am here to tell you that Mel does not seem all that worried about it because he is vacationing in Costa Rica with a 24 year old. The woman, Oksana Pochepa, who is a Russian pop singer, told The Sun magazine, which is a British publication that “she had a romantic relationship with Gibson and is in love. This is serious and I hope our union will be real and strong and long – lasting.” I am sure she does hope that. Good luck with that!
Who do you think will win this race?  So get this… Ashton Kutcher has challenged the CNN network to see who can be the first to get 1 million followers on Twitter. In fact he really doesn’t believe he can do it. He is one person and CNN is a media company. He says if he does to it however he will go to Ted Turners’ house, who is the founder of CNN, and play ding dong ditch on his house. Kutcher is actually in 3rd place with the highest number of followers coming in with 896,947 and Britney Spears is 2nd highest with 905,640 followers and currently CNN is in 1st place with 937,787 followers. No one yet has reached 1 million twitter followers. Now that Ashton has put it out there, I bet he can do it. He has offered his 1 millionth person a copy of Guitar Hero, and he also twittered that he would donate 10,000 mosquito nets for beds to charity if he wins and 1000 if he loses.  Larry King and Ashton have been chatting and are both hoping for their own victory. Stay tuned.      

Nickelodeons Kid Choice Award Winners

This weekend was all about Nickelodeons 22nd Annual Kids Choice Awards. I cannot believe I am about to admit this publically but I have already seen it twice. For the record I was watching it with kids though. Nickelodeon has been hyping it up for weeks with commercials with The Rock, who was this year’s host, along with commercials also done with last year’s host, Justin Timberlake. Not only were there commercials on TV and advertising in the magazines, we watched several web broadcasts from the team of " ICarly", with Miranda Costgrove and friends, one of Nickelodeons best new shows.  And Nickelodeon did such a good job promoting the show they had over 90 million people vote online for this year’s favorites. That was definitely a record for the award show. I have to say The Rock and WWF wrestling have never been one of my favorites but he sure did change my mind last night. He was great and the kids loved him and anyone who is willing to get totally slimed like that gets my personal stamp of approval.

Here are some of the winners from the night.   High School Musical 3: Senior Year as you can imagine was a big fan favorite. It won for Favorite Movie, and Vanessa Hudgens won for Favorite Female Star. Will Smith won for Favorite Males Star and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa won for Favorite Animated Movie. Jack Black won for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for playing Po in Kung Fu Panda. With kids voting it is no big surprise that the Jonas Brothers won for Favorite Music Group, while Miley Cyrus and Jesse McCartney won for Favorite Female and Male Singers. Beyonce won Favorite Song for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It). In the TV categories Favorite Show went to my personal favorite, “ICarly” and Favorite Reality Show went to “American Idol”.  Cutie David Archuletta and Paula Abdul accepted the award. Can I just say, no wonder people say strange things about Paula; she did seem just a bit off. Favorite TV Actor went to Dylan Sprouse from “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”. Good for him but come on, you have to feel bad for his twin who he co –stars with. Selena Gomez from “Wizards of Waverly Place” won Favorite TV actress and of course Favorite Cartoon went to that cute little yellow guy “SpongeBob Squarepants”. Favorite Male Athlete went to Peyton Manning and Favorite Female Athlete went to Candace Parker.  And last but not least, again no surprise here, Favorite Video Game went to the very fun and popular Guitar Hero World Tour and Favorite Book went the Twilight Series.

It was a fun night full of plenty of kid’s excitement and plenty of slime (be glad you were watching from home because it was a gooey ride home for a lot of kids in the audience.” The Rocks big goal was to be the best Kid’s Choice Host ever and he may have just succeeded.  And speaking of slime, good job Jonas Brothers who really got it good. If you haven’t seen it I am sure it will be on plenty of times, sit down, relax and enjoy the sliming.
