Pop Princess Britney Spears can finally move on with her life.
She is engaged, has 2 beautiful boys, a world full of fans, and now she just made bank with selling off her Beverly Hills Estate.
The asking price for the mansion was a staggering $2,995,000.....but she got a WHOLE lot more for it!!
Reports are coming in that Brit received a whopping $ 4,253,000 for the place!!!!
I'm sure as great as that is, Britney can finally be free of the place. The Beverly Hills spot is infamous for now being the house she resided in during her 2008 meltdown when she was hospitalized. Pictures were splattered all over the net of our beloved Britney strapped to a stretcher and looking disheveled.
Now, here we are, 4 years later.
Britney will hopefully be celebrating this year with an incredible wedding to fiance Jason Trawick. Britney and Jason are now looking to rent somewhere short term until they find their dream house.
Idol lost another one last night, and yours truly wasn't really thrilled.
After the stellar performances from Wednesday night, the results could have really gone anywhere. No one was safe and I dreaded who might leave.
Ryan wasted no time getting down to business and brought up the first 3 to figure out which of them would be in danger. Hollie, Phillip and Elise were first up on the chopping block with Ryan sending Phillip back to the couch first.
Coming down to Elise and Hollie, I would have been FURIOUS if Elise wound up in danger....but thankfully it was Hollie. Looking back at Wednesday's show, she truly was the only contestant to get somewhat criticism from the judges, so this wasn't really a surprise.
Next up we were treated to a performance from rap superstar Nicki Minaj who "performed" her latest single "Starships.
I use quotes around performance because this was a bit of a mess. I love me some Nicki, and I don't knock lipsynching...but just do …
Well, if you're not, you best be on board soon, because it's coming!!
The revamped series debuts this summer and with original cast members Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray all returning, it could be the surprise hit that everyone wants it to be!
Or it could tank like the Melrose Place reboot.
The new promotional poster has been revealed and its a clever play on the series. When Patrick Duffy announced he wouldn't return for an 8th season, the producers killed his character of Bobby Ewing off. So when the actor decided to return for the 9th, creators came up with a way to make it work:
The entire 8th season had been a dream, and Bobby showed up at the start of the 9th in the shower.
Pretty clever right?
Well the original cast members are back and they are bringing with them a new generation of stars such as Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe and Jordana Brewster.
The series debuts June 13th.
PS: The rest of you are staring at Josh Henderson too right???? R…
Nicki Minaj is getting set to release her sophomore album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" April 3rd, and while first single "Starships" is doing well, these 3 new potential singles could do well too (okay only 2 of them and you'll understand soon)
First up we get the song Nicki performed at this years Grammy's "Roman Holiday" and it's......interesting.
Check it out below.
There's a reason this was changed as the lead single and replaced with "Starships".
While Nicki's rhymes are solid, this wouldn't have done well on radio at all. It's simply too much and not the greatest she's ever come up with.
Luckily the other 2 songs are GREAT!
Next up we get potential second single "Pound the Alarm" and it is EVERYTHING. The beat, the verses, the CHORUS!? This is dancefloor Nicki at her finest. While her raps aren't spectacular, the song makes up for it. Check out "Pound the Alarm" below!
Scratch the WTF though.....Oh hell, scratch the BAD too!!!!
This is a BULLSHIT FREE review!!!!
After tonight's performance show on American Idol, I'm more confused than ever as to who will end up in the finals, but I've still got my picks (that is if it doesn't change next week HA!!)
1. Colton Dixon (Everything by Lifehouse)
This was an INCREDIBLE way to start the show and I couldn't be happier for this guy. His emotions absolutely poured through and it was one of his best vocals to date. Hell, it was even better than his cover of "Piano Man" last week. Incredible.
2. Skylar Laine (Gunpowder & Lead by Miranda Lambert)
The country firecracker lit up the stage once again, and while it may not have been her best performance, she still did a solid job. Her energy is infectious and you can't help but want to jump up & down whenever she is on that stage. I give her credit tonight for rocking it, although it still wasn't her best vocally.
What might of come as a shocker is one of the couples who wound up in the bottom 3, but not the couple eliminated.
"Dancing with the Stars" first elimination was last night and tennis star Martina Navratilova and her partner Tony Dovolani were the first to go.
The couple had the lowest scores from the first 2 weeks of competition and Monday nights jive wasn't pretty. Martina made obvious mistakes during it and seemed awkward in trying to fix them.
What did come as a bit of a shock however was that Disney star Roshon Fagan and his partner Chelsie Hightower ended up in jeopardy as well. Roshon had scored near the top of the leader board and the crowd met their place in the bottom with a chorus of boos. The other couple that was in jeopardy was singer Gavin Degraw and his partner Karina Smirnoff.
Roshon could go very far in the competition if he can muster up the votes, but Gaving needs to really turn things around.
Country superstar Carrie Underwood is getting ready to release her 4th studio album "Blown Away" May 1st, and while I may not have been a fan of the photoshopped cover art, the names of the tracks definitely intrigue me.
Take a look below!!
1. 'Good Girl'
2. 'Blown Away'
3. 'Two Black Cadillacs'
4. 'See You Again'
5. 'Do You Think About Me'
6. 'Forever Changed'
7. 'Nobody Ever Told You'
8. 'One Way Ticket'
9. 'Thank God for Hometowns'
10. 'Good in Goodbye'
11. 'Leave Love Alone'
12. 'Cupid's Got a Shotgun'
13. 'Wine After Whiskey'
14. 'Who Are You'
After the success of lead single "Good Girl", I have extremely high hopes for the album and can't WAIT for May 1st!!
I have to admit, that at certain parts of last nights episode, I was beginning to wonder what the hell was going on. The episode seemed to stray from the norm of what had made it so endearing and entertaining to watch, but by the end of the episode, I remembered exactly why I LOVE this series!
The episode focused on Derek baiting Karen into a surprise audition without Tom and Julia knowing. Well, everyone knows you can't keep a good secret long and the info began trickling out thanks to a scheming Ellis (who else is HATING this guy??) By the time the news was out (Eileen and Derek wanted to create a new scene for the musical WITHOUT Tom and Julia's knowledge) their was fire.
Eileen quickly apologized to the duo while Derek became frustrated and the confrontation with Tom was the icing on the cake. It has been well known throughout the course of the season so far that their is a HATE between the 2 men, but we've never been told why. Until last night.
After last night, it might be hard to argue that!!
Last night, "Dancing with the Stars" returned for a second week of competition, except this time, someone will be eliminated!
The judges were thrilled last week with the debut episode and it seemed to carry over into this week. While most of the "stars" (HA!) showed off their stellar moves, only a few fell and landed in trouble. Tonight's results should be very interesting.
Let's get back to the dancing though:
At the top of the leader board, tied for first place, is Disney channel star Roshon Fegan and his partner Chelsie Hightower, and opera star Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Balls with 26 out of 30. Roshon is already a favorite of mine. The charisma that oozes out of the kid is contagious and I feel he will do very well this season. Tying at the top however, is no easy feat and Katherine NAILED it. She seemed uncomfortable with "sexiness" in rehearsals, but once on the dancefloor, she…
Former stars of the Fox network will come out to celebrate the milestone anniversary on April 22nd.
The network will celebrate 25 years since their first signal transmission (which is actually April 5th) and has sent out invites to some big names!
"Married with Children" stars Ed O'Neil, Katey Sagal, David Faustino and Christina Applegate will make an appearance together as will "X Files" stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
The exciting part for yours truly however, will be the mini reunion between some of the "Beverly Hills 90210"cast! Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris and Jason Priestly will all join in celebrating their groundbreaking 10 season show.
More stars of shows from the past will be announced shortly as will a host of the event.
Luke Perry better be there too!!! What the hell else is he doing?!
The late night host has been named the host of this years event and according to yours truly, it's a PERFECT choice!!
It's the first time the funnyman has hosted the show, but he has hosting duties under his belt already. He has already played host to the American Music Awards as well as the ESPY awards.
Kimmel has since released a statement in regards to his duties:
"I hope to be able to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars"
Murphy created buzz last year when he was tapped to play host to the Oscars, only to quit when executive producer (and good friend) Brett Ratner quit amongst scandal. Eddie bailing on the show made headlines around the world.
That's right....it's going to be a Justin Bieber post.....
And surprisingly, it's not going to be one that rips the teen heartthrob apart!!
Justin Bieber JUST dropped the brand new single off of his upcoming 3rd studio album "Believe" which is slated for a summer release, and to the shock of yours truly:
I LOVE it!
The Mike Posner produced track is the track that finally allows Justin to grow up, and that was presumably the plan all along. The spoken word in the beginning and the rap sound VERY reminiscent to the days of Justin Timberlake and his "Justified" and "FutureSexLoveSounds" albums.
Check out "Boyfriend" below!!
Will radio eat this up? I'm hoping they do because this is the song that could really change Justin's demographic. The urban feel to it could really propel him further.
What do you guys think?
Smash hit? Or is it too different, fans won't enjoy it??
The highly anticipated "Hunger Games" opened this past Friday, and the numbers are finally in as to how it did:
The book to film adaptation grossed a ridiculous $155 million, and in the process destroyed the previous numbers of all of the "Twilight" films.
These numbers have made the film the 3rd highest opening weekend of all time, trailing behind "The Dark Knight" at number 2 with $158.4 million and "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2" which comes in at number 1 with $169.2 million.
When everything is taken into account as well including overseas sales ($59.3 million), the film grossed a complete worldwide total of $214.3 million!!
The film surpassed many others as well on their trek to the 3rd spot including:
- Spider-Man 3 $151.1 million in 2007
- Twilight: New Moon $142.8 million in 2009
- Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 $138.1 million in 2011
I do believe Katniss Everdeen has officially beaten that…
We've kept you in the loop since the beginning about the possibility of Pop Princess Britney Spears joining the judges table for season 2 of X Factor.
Well, now it's appearing that it could be even closer to happening!!
After the dispute between how much Britney would make became public, no word on that has leaked since. Some are speculating that a deal has already been made and they're being very hush hush about it, until the official announcement is made.
Well, to throw fire to the rumors, there may have been chatter about it at the most recent conservatorship meeting between Britney, her father and a judge which happened Thursday.
If you all don't remember, here's a little refresher:
After Britney suffered a "breakdown" several years ago, her father was granted a conservatorship over her estate and made all business decisions as well as travel etc. Obviously though, in the past few years Britney has r…
495 Productions, which is responsible for the smash hit MTV show, reportedly told TMZ that with Snooks pregnant, and Mike in rehab (and possibly not drinking in the new season) they will be looking to "phase the 2 out, in favor of bringing some new cast members on board.
The show is worried about losing their audience if they don't do something drastic because let's be real, would viewers still tune in without our beloved Situation Snooki??
I think its safe to say the show can survive without Mike, but Snooki? Nah.
Time will tell on what will actually happen, but season 6 is set to start filming this summer!
Following the announcement of the toxicology report that cocaine was indeed found in Whitney's system, her family has released a joint statement which says:
“We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.”
What makes this even sadder is that closure may not fully be.
The Beverly Hills PD reported to website TMZ that the case is not officially closed, and that they will be looking into whether or not there was tampering with evidence. There is now speculation that someone may have removed the traces of cocaine at the scene before paramedics and officers arrived.
I have a feeling this is going to happen again this season, but last night, America got it very WRONG with their elimination.
Let's go back to the beginning though shall we?
The Top 10 took to the stage and performed another Billy Joel classic and its so refreshing to hear them all sing live during the opening number, and it not be pre-recorded like past years.
After another craptastic Ford music video, it was time to get down to business and Mr. Seacrest told them to dim the lights!
First up was Hollie, Elise and Skylar.
Now, while Hollie had her first rough week, she was in absolutely ZERO danger as she was the first sent back to the couch. I had predicted Skylar to join Deandre in the dreaeded bottom 2, but alas, Skylar was safe as well. This left Elise. I would have lost my mind had she been in the bottom yet again, but America did the right thing and put her through after her stellar performance this week. I really am hoping the girl finds the votes, be…
LA County Coroner Chief Craig Harvey revealed the details surround the icon's passing and its not the response her fans wanted to hear.
Harvey made it clear:
Immediately prior to her death, Whitney had used cocaine. He went on to further explain that the level of the drug found in her system was "acute":
Meaning she used not long before she drowned in the bathtub. "Accidental drowning" is listed as the official cause of death.
According to Harvey, the autopsy revealed a 60% narrowing of Whitney's arteries - a direct result of the chronic cocaine use. Harvey claims the artery constriction led to a cardiac event before her death which caused her to slump into the water.
There were other drugs found it Whitney's system (Benadryl and Xanax) which he reported were at or below therapeutic level, and didn't significantly affect her death.
Pop superstar Rihanna was caught arriving to the house of "Two & a Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher in the wee early hours of Thursday morning. The singer reportedly arrived around midnight and didn't leave til almost 4am.
Now, Ashton's pad is on the market, so maybe Ri was just scoping the place out.....but seriously:
At midnight....for 4 hours!?
All we can do now is speculate, but one thing is for sure, if there is in fact something going on:
And once again, notice the lack of exclamation marks....
Katy Perry has JUST released the brand new video for her craptastic new single"Part of Me", and while its not what I expected AT ALL from the songstress, I still don't like it.
Check out the video below.
All this video did for me is realize how much I miss the old Katy.
The beginning of the video, with Katy confronting her lover, was GREAT because Katy looked fantastic! The jet black hair is what I love about her. I'm just tired of all the theatrics with her. Leave that to Gaga and Minaj.
There will be a double dosage of the WTF in this post!!
The top 10 finalists took the stage tonight on Idol and REALLY showed that it could quite possibly be one of the most stellar top 10 the show has ever seen! With the finalists singing the songs of Billy Joel, it would end up being an amazing show!
1. Deandre Brackensick (Only the Good Die Young)
Poor Deandre. The first contestant out of the box scores a BAD rating. This didn't work. The vocals were completely out of reach for him and it seemed he really struggled with the entire performance. I do believe he is in serious trouble.
2. Erika Van Pelt (New York State of Mind)
Everyone, your first WTF moment of the night mixed in with a GOOD rating! Erika shocked the audience (and the world) tonight with her new 'do and I LOVED it! The rocker belted out a Joel classic and sounded flawless while doing so. I believe this performance secured her a spot in next weeks show, but time will tell.
While I was one of the MILLIONS of fans that were thrilled when it was announced that you would be returning to our television screens in "Ringer", I must admit that things have changed....
And not for the better.
Here lies a problem Buffy Sarah....
What could have been a nighttime, trashy soap opera, has completely turned around into a mess. The premise of the series started off with a bang (minus the crap CGI boat mess) and you've been rocking the hell out of both roles (Bridget & Siobhan) but the show itself is flawed. The storyline is beginning to get ridiculous and not making much sense anymore. You can only attempt to shock the viewers and then pull it back and say "Gotcha!" so many times. I lost count of how many times this happened in this weeks episode.
While you have a fan in Perez Hilton, and do not forget that I still ADORE you, I've decided that I need a break from your show.
Just the other day, it was announced that MTV staple show "Jersey Shore" would indeed return for a 6th season, amidst the speculation it would be finished with the pending arrival of one little Snooki junior.
All is well in Seaside however, as the lovable guidette signed on to return, but now it appears they may be a man down, as Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has reportedly checked into a rehab facility.
The rehab is reportedly concerning substance abuse, and that shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who watches the show. Ever since the show debuted 2 years ago, (crazy to think they're on their 6th season) the gang are paid quite well for appearances at night clubs and such. While most of them have their drinking under control, people close to the situation (HA!) are saying as of lately, Mike has been showing signs of distress.
With the show set to return this summer, there is no word on whether Mike will be able to participa…
