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!!   

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.
