It’s a Girl for Madonna

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.        

Dancing with the Stars Has a New Champion

One down and one to go. We now know who won “Dancing with the Stars” and very soon we will know who the big winner is on “American Idol”. Congratulations to the youngest winner ever, 17 year old, Olympic gold medalist, Shawn Johnson. She just barely beat out her French opponent, Gilles Marini, since there was less than 1% of votes that separated the two. So congratulations are definitely due for Gilles as well. Another big winner is Mark Ballas, who is now a two time title winner for ‘DWTS”. Although the show could have easily been done in 1 hour they really milked that second hour and filled it with so much junk… I mean recap…filler stuff.  At least Lady Gaga was good entertainment, not only her two songs “Just Dance” and “Love Game” but the costumes on that woman…whoa!  So that is it for Season 8. Now we will just have to wait patiently to see who the next cast of “stars” will consist of.

You just have to love Ann Curry from the “Today Show”, who was the chosen one that not only got to travel to Cannes, but also got the coveted Brad Pitt interview. And Ann enjoyed every minute of the interview, even going as far as to act like a school girl, giggling and touching Brad at every opportunity. Ann had a 7 minute interview with him and Brad looked like the total superstar today, it would have been hard not to act like that around him, but Ann may have gone too far. Getting down to business, Brad was there to talk about his new Quentin Tarantino movie, “Inglourious Basterds”, which is a World War II movie. Although there have recently been Brangelina trouble in paradise rumors, Brad denies them and says that Angie has been filming her new movie “Salt” while Brad has been the stay at home dad. The two will be reunited in Cannes at the premiere of Brad’s movie this evening.

I think I have to agree with Jennifer Aniston when it comes to John Mayer and his twittering. In fact maybe he should just stick to singing all together. His latest shtick…John is explaining the difference between different kinds of women out there and he doesn’t want the guys to hate him for dating the beautiful women. So here is his explanation of woman…what do you think of this ladies? He breaks them into 3 categories “douches”, “famewhores”, and “showbiz types”. And then he goes on to explain himself. He says the “showbiz types are people who grew up talking to themselves alone in a room for hours until they found some sort of outlet. Once they found that outlet, everything fell into place, except for the fact that they still never worked out why they still talk so much. So you see, though filled with deep emotional voids that can never be filled, Showbiz Types are an important part of your Nations tapestry.” John considers himself a Showbiz type. Thanks for all your twitters and giving us such an in depth look at your theory. Like I said…maybe he should just sing.

Good news for cutie, Chace Crawford from “The Gossip Girl”… he has just been cast as the star of the remake of the hit movie, “Footloose”. This is the movie that jump started Kevin Bacon’s career back when he was just 25. Crawford is 23 and the movie will begin shooting next March.
