Thanks to a little help from his friends, an ugly green ogre, Shrek and pal Donkey, from “Shrek the Musical”, Brett Michaels, from Poison, is doing ok after getting banged up during Sunday nights Tony Awards. After visiting the ER, Michaels received 3 stitches to his lip, and x-rays confirmed a fractured nose. That was quite a finish to his song “Nothin’ But a Good Time” that he sang with the cast of “Rock of Ages”. Brett was a good sport and wasn’t angry about the incident but his reps are denying the fact the Brett “missed his mark” as was being said for the reason of the mishap. Luckily all is fine. Michaels may have to cancel his next performance, but they will just have to wait and see. He is on a solo tour right now.
Congratulations to Madonna and new family member Mercy James. Three judges have decided to allow the Material Girl to adopt the 4 year old Malawian girl after 3 months of deliberation. The holdup had been the 18 month residency ruling but now that has been approved. I wonder if the fact that Madonna has build a day care center in Malawi helped her case at all. Just kidding. It was a good thing that she did for the children there and the courts have ruled that she is a suitable mother. Hey, who wouldn’t want to be adopted by Madonna? Good for her for changing some many lives! Congrats also go out to “Gossip Girl” star Kelly Rutherford, who had her second child, a girl on Monday night. Kelly is currently involved in a nasty divorce from her husband.
And it is a new hairdo for late night talk show host Stephen Colbert. While doing his show for the troops in Iraq and speaking with General Ray Odierno, President Obama appeared in a videotaped message ordering the General to shave Colbert’s head. It was pretty funny and the troops deserve a bit of comedy while they are out there. Colbert is taping 4 shows in Iraq and wants to bring focus back to the war which he feels has lost the attention of the people. A few funny jokes that he shared with the troops went like this “It must be nice here in Iraq because I understand some of you keep coming back again and again.” (Referring to the multiple tours the soldiers have had to endure). “You’ve earned so many frequent flier miles; you’ve earned a free ticket to Afghanistan.” The troops said their favorite part of the show though was the buzz cut Colbert received. When asked why he did it? The response was he had too much hair to be a soldier. And a nice head of hair it was too.
Could it be that love is really in the air again for Lindsay Lohan and gal pal Samantha Ronson? The two were spotted together hanging out in London and Lindsay even Twittered “Leaving London but with my favorite favorite!!” She also says, “Great news to share!!! Maybe… ” The girls stayed at separate hotels and were not seen out together but obviously they were both there. Lindsay is also wearing a diamond ring on her left hand. Could that be the exciting news she was alluding too? The two seem to be happy together and as of yet no big fights to report, so we shall see.
Last but not least, no big surprise here, but it is official…Adam Lambert comes out and says he is gay. He didn’t want to come out while on the show with so much media scrutiny but now he feels he is doing it on his own terms. It is what it is and he is not interested in being an activist or anything. You can learn more about the “American Idol” runner up in his new interview in “Rolling Stone” magazine when it hits the stands on Wednesday.
