Free Limp Bizkit Show

There is a little bit of this and a little bit of that going on today in the world of gossip. To start with we are going to be seeing a lot of Mariah Carey in the near future as she gets set to release her new album “Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel” at the end of August. Tonight she will premiere her new video “Obsessed” on “America’s Got Talent”. There is already hubbub about this video, first off it was leaked on the internet, but all copies have been removed. Secondly in the video Mariah is dressed up and looks eerily like Eminem and some are saying this is a response to his song “Bagpipes from Bagdad” where he talks about Mariah and their relationship from years back and why is she obsessed with him. Now Mariah and husband Nick Cannon both deny that the song/video has anything to do with Eminem but really could it be a coincidence? I guess we will just have to wait and see for ourselves once the video is out. You can also see Mariah on the “Today Show” in the Toyota concert series on August 28th. Also performing during the month will be Flo Rida and Natasha Bedingfield.

Renee Zellweger will be reprising her role as Bridget Jones for the third time. Typically Zellweger has gained 30 pounds to play Bridget Jones and this time will be no different. She says although the first two days of eating anything she wants is great the up and down on her body takes its toll and is very difficult. The premise for this 3rd movie sounds fun…Bridget is almost 40 and is in full baby mode and wants to have one before it is too late. You know a lot of good comedy can surely come from that topic. Filming is expected to take place at the end of the year. That should be plenty of time to start packing on the pounds.

Another old time favorite is back and looking fabulous for the release of her new album. Whitney Houston was in London for a party in her honor to unveil her new album, “I Look to You” which will be available September 1. Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer of Sony Music and long time friend was at her side, and played 9 tracks from the album which still is being worked on. Whitney had some big names collaborating with her on this album. She had help from, Alicia Keys, R Kelly, Diane Warren, Stargate and a duet with Akon for the song ”Like I Never Left”.

Brad Paisley is headed to the White House with Alison Krause to perform for the Obama’s, members of Congress and the White House staff. The main reason for their visit is actually to help Michelle Obama with an educational workshop she has put in place for middle school and high school students to help encourage arts and arts education. Last month her focus was on Jazz and in the fall her next workshop will focus on Classical music. The concert is actually just a bonus.

Limp Bizkit fans are in for a special treat from the band. Together for the first time in the states in 8 years the guys are going to be giving tickets away free for a concert event in Las Vegas on July 18th. The concert will take place at the Pearl Concert Theatre which is in the Palms Casino Resort. Fans will receive 2 tickets but it is on a first come first serve basis so you can imagine it is going to be pretty crazy. I wouldn’t be surprised if people are already waiting in line. In addition to the free tickets, fans will get a free t-shirt that was designed exclusively for that show. The band is also allowing fans to design the concert by picking their favorites songs and voting, and the songs that win will be the ones that are sung at the concert. You can vote at  .How cool is that? What an amazing experience if you are one of the chosen few to actually make it in. Good Luck and have fun!!           

Free Albums and Downloads from Coldplay!!

You have got to love Coldplay…listen to what the band is doing for their fans during these hard times. They just announced that for every fan that attends there “Vida la Vida” summer concert on the North America leg of their tour, they will receive a free live album from the band. How awesome is that? And for those unable to attend the concert they can download 9 songs from “LeftRightLeftRightLeft” at the bands official Coldplay website. The band said in a statement that “Playing live is what we love. This album is a thank you to our fans – the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen.

There is a big celebration planned for this Sunday to honor and celebrate singing legend and activist Pete Seeger, who is turning 90.  For those of you who don’t know him you will once I share a few of his famous songs. He is famous for, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, as well as “If I Had a Hammer” and “Turn!Turn! Turn!”.  The celebration that will be held at Madison Square Garden will be a 4 hour concert event with performers such as Emmy Lou Harris, Dave Matthews, Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder plus many more are scheduled to perform. The event is a benefit to help raise money for Seeger’s charity, the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, which helps preserve the river from all the pollution. Seeger himself is scheduled to sing one of his songs but he is not sharing which one he will be doing. Although turning 90, Seeger has not slowed down, he performed at President Obama’s inauguration, as well as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival last month, and he just released a new album. It should be a special night for a special man.

David Blaine is handing out “how to survive starvation advice” to Mia Farrow, who is now on day 5 of her hunger strike, to raise awareness for the Darfur situation. If you remember, Blaine went 44 days without food while he hung out over the Thames River in London. So his advice for Farrow…drink 4 liters of water a day and after 6 days you will stop feeling hungry. Well she is almost there, let’s hope he is right. Farrow is said to be very weak already and spends most of her time in bed. Her goal is to not eat for 3 weeks.
IT seems to be true love for Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey who if you can believe it are celebrating their one year anniversary. That is pretty big in Hollywood, don’t you think? The two celebrated in Las Vegas this week at the Palms Casino Resort. Nick surprised Mariah with a video that he put together of the couple’s first year together. It brought Mariah to tears. After the video, Nick told Mariah and all their friends that had been invited to their anniversary celebration that, “this is the most amazing person in the world. I dedicate my life to her daily, and together this union is gonna last forever. She is my rock.” Awww…love him! Congratulations guys, I hope it does last forever.
