Happy 40th Mariah Carey

Love is still in the air for Nick Cannon and his wife Mariah Carey. Nick is quite the romantic and pulled out a lavish yet intimate 40 birthday party celebration in Barbados for Mariah and 11 of their close friends. The couple flew to Barbados in a private jet, and then had the party at the swanky Whispers on the Bay restaurant. Nick had the restaurant filled with hundreds of balloons and there was plenty of Dom Perignon to go around. People from the restaurant said that the couple were very lovey dovey with one another and were also very nice and down to earth to the restaurant employees. The couple was seen playing together on the beach and talking a romantic walk together. How sweet. Mariah has been working really hard on a new album and Nick just wanted her to have fun and relax.  Nice job Nick sounds like mission accomplished!


I have to say I think Britney Spears is really back this time. She has been working really hard on her Circus tour and she is also the new face of Candies’ shoes. She has new ads coming out for the line that are available at Kohl’s and let me tell you she looks amazing. She has gotten her body in amazing shape and she is flaunting it. Check out her behind the scenes photo shoot for Candies and see if you agree.

So really, what is our world coming to when the longest running comedy, “The Simpsons” will be our new postage stamp? I guess the U.S. Postal Service wants us laughing as they increase postage yet again and this time to 44 cents a stamp. A spokesman for the USPS says that “The Simpsons are American Icons. We are excited about it and we think America will be too.” I would be more excited if they weren’t raising their prices. How about this though…out of more than 50,000 suggestions for who/what should be on the next stamp they chose “The Simpsons.”  That is just a little funny to me even if the show has been on the air for 20 years. Don’t get me wrong, I love Marge, Homer and Bart Simpson but on our nations postage stamps??

OK, and this whole John Mayer and Jennifer Anniston break up is starting to get really ugly. And although I appreciate the drama, I just didn’t expect it from him. John gave an earful to a crowd of 3000 who were on the Mayercraft Carrier 2, that John was on to debut his new song, “Heartbreak Warfare”. Think this is about his breakup with Anniston?? He told the crowd some very unkind things about his ex including, “its miserable being around someone who’s negative.” He also shared with the crowd that Anniston is “obsessive – compulsive” and that “she isn’t down at all about their split”. He also got a bit crazy talking about Perez Hilton (who is not a big Anniston fan) and how he made out with him and how he would have sex with him “just to prove a point”. Kind of odd behavior from the star. You can read all about it in the new issue of US Magazine. I am sure the article is going to cause quite a stir.
