The Judge in Michael Jackson’s doctor’s trial has come out saying that he is “comfortable” allowing tv cameras in the court room during the trial. Translation: Superior Court Judge Pastor is “comfortable” with the ridiculous, media circus that will surround this trial, the way it always surrounded Michael Jackson when he was alive. It sounds like someone has a little Judge Ito envy……
Britney Spears is about to hit us again with the video for her new single “Hold it Against Me”. In only 10 short days, the video will be released with plenty of hype! As Britney sets out to release her latest album “Femme Fatal” the media is calling her most recent effort a “comeback”. Its not the first time, nor is she the only celebrity to earn this absolutely ridiculous tag. However, Britney is an excellent case in point. The woman toured, promoting her “Circus” album for almost all of 2009. At the end of the tour she released “3”. Then she took a little break. Its what being a pop star is all about. Work your ass off for easily two years and then take a rest. Its work. Its a job. Even when we don’t actually see Britney – she is working. Recording a new album and getting ready for the media blitz. She hasn’t had a new album in one year. One year! She did however, have a single during that time. Yet, the media call her most recent efforts a “comeback”. WTF?
Now, I admit that in the early days of Britney, when she was all of 17 years old and childless, her people were pumping out Britney albums as quickly as they could make them. Britney had about four albums in five years. I am sure that they are doing the same thing with The Biebs. He’s hot, he’s now and he is making a whole lot of people a whole lot of money. It seems that it has changed our expectations in terms of what a musical star is supposed to produce. They have to be in sight at all times. Complete and constant over-saturation of every form of media and communications. Its crazy.
Britney is back after what must have been a very short break (given that she has a video and album about to drop). It isn’t a comeback – because she really didn’t go anywhere. She is simply offering up her latest creation to the world. And I personally can’t wait for my girl crush to get out there and entertain us yet again.
Why does Glee need a Britney episode? Well the answer to that is actually quite simple: She is an icon. While she hasn’t been around as long as Madonna, she is indeed an icon in her own right which has been well recognized by the material girl herself. She and Britney have shared the stage a few times, did a song together and in a truly iconic moment in pop culture – shared “the kiss”.Besides the fact that she deserves it, Britney has some awesome songs to choose from that would fit well into Glee world:
1. Picture the Cheerios doing “Crazy”….It would be awesome!
2. Picture Rachel singing “Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman” or “Overprotected” at which point we could meet her gay dads!
3. Imagine Quinn doing a rendition of “Womanizer” for her baby daddy Puck.
4. Now picture the female Glee cast performing “Boys” in the school halls.
5. Sue Sylvester needs to get in there too….She is just too awesome to leave out and has to play a part in the Britney episode…I can see her readily adapting “Gimmie More”…..Its Sue Sylvester Bitch!
6. I can see Finn singing “…Baby One More Time” to his crush Rachel.
7. I have to admit that I would love to see Rachel singing “Slave” to her new man and prancing around with a huge snake.
Lets face it, the possibilities are endless. Endless! Glee should be required to have a Britney week because it will be so very entertaining and just plain fun! I think Emma, the uptight guidance counselor, should accidentally do a crotch flash…
I Heart A Britney Spears Glee Episode!
Got Britney Episode ideas – Tell me about them….
So the latest word on the never-ending Jen and Brad saga is….that Brad thinks Jen is “pathetic”. The story according to the ever so reliable US Weekly goes that Brad believes that Jen only did the Architectural Digest piece on her home to get his attention. She was apparently not interested in architecture at all when they were married and only did the cover to get to him as he was on the cover in 2009. He calls her cover on his favorite magazine “Pathetic” and “Desperate”.
As I have previously mentioned, the whole Jen can’t move on from Brad thing drives me a little crazy. Jennifer just finished a renovation of a house that she loves for over 2 years and I can’t blame her for wanting to showcase it. Poor Jen just can’t get any credit for moving on from her dissolved marriage 5 years after the fact. Portraying Jennifer Aniston as a desperate woman who can’t get over Brad is what is pathetic. I don’t heart this crap!
Check out my prior post on this issue for some in depth review: Give Jennifer Aniston Some Credit.
Wow! All I can say is WOW! Sandra adopts a little boy and manages to keep it a secret for months even while surrounded by a s**t storm of press. Between winning an Oscar and a huge scandal of infidelity on the part of her husband, Sandra kept her adoption of little Louis under wraps for three months! Color me impressed. Apparently through her network of family and friends, after Sandra left her home with Jesse James, she managed to stay underground. Those are some very good and faithful friends! It seems absolutely impossible for a celebrity in this day in age to keep anything a secret, especially when they are surrounded by the paparazzi, but she did it! One heck of a covert operation. You go Sandra!
Another weeks goes by on ANTM and you guessed it – Tyra busted out another jumpsuit. Ms. Jumpsuit sent the girls to New Zealand this week sending the girls on go sees and then set them up for a photo shoot with the very sexy Nigel Barker. This is how it all shook down and since this is indeed my blog – I will show you how No Shame Baby saw things this week:
1. No Shame Baby’s Top Pick: Raina
This is nothing short of a gorgeous picture and Ms. Raina is working it! She looks great and so does the dress. I LOVE this picture and so did the judges, but only chose it as the third best. It should have been yours last night Raina! You was robbed! I think Tyra and company once again stepped out to smoke a little somethin’, somethin’.
She hasn’t been whipping it out until this week where she worked that dress, her face and that sheep to take the number 2 spot. And rightfully so. Both the Judges and No Shame baby agree!
This is a good picture, but I just don’t love it. The dress looks alright but the look on her face is not good. She just doesn’t look like the beautiful girl that she is. I have a hard time believing that this was the best picture of Krista’s film. Of course Ms. Jumpsuit herself picked it. The judges selected it as the number 1 photo of the week. My only explanation for this is that the judges have seriously debilitating crack addictions….which would also explain Tyra’s jumpsuits.
I have to agree with Nigel – this shot was fantastic except for Jessica’s face which is void of emotion. This crime landed Jessica in the bottom 2 – I think a little undeserved. Its not a great shot but….other than her face, it is very nice. Though a trip to the bottom 2 might just put Jessica back on track.
The judges hated this one and I must say that it was not Alasia’s best shoot for sure. However, I kind of like the picture. It looks kind of mysterious, like she is some kind of female wizard roaming the hills. But I can see why it wasn’t well loved and Alasia hasn’t been delivering the past few weeks so…they sent her home.
The do-no-wrong drag queen missed the mark this week. Really missed the mark. Its just not a good picture in any regard. Well, the sheep is cute….. The judges didn’t like it either and Angelea was the third last photo to be chosen. I think that was too kind and that the Drag Queen should have been taken down a notch by being put in the bottom 2. Cause this is bad!
And that is the way ANTM shook down this week folks.
In spite of a great week for the very sexy Casey James, he wound up in the bottom two on American Idol this week. Finally Casey figured out that he needed to offer up a little something more for the judges and he did it with Shania Twain’s “Don’t”. It was indeed an excellent performance and as usual, he looked fantastic! So why was Casey in the bottom two? Why didn’t he manage to bounce back? These are the very questions that I am asking myself. It might just be too late for Casey to redeem himself after a myriad of mediocre performances. However how he is being overshadowed by Big Mike and High School student Arron Kelly is beyond me. And I’m sorry but Lee’s performance this week I personally thought was nothing short of brutal. I think Lee has done some really good stuff, but not this week. His performance of “Still the One” was just not good. But the judges loved it. I call a set up going on here. I think the plan on Idol is to have Crystal and Lee in the top 2. It can be the only explanation as to why the praised the hell out of that performance and were not critical enough of Crystal’s dissapointing arrangement of “No One Needs to Know”.
I think one of the other problem’s that Casey might be encountering is the ‘cheese’ factor. He is a hottie for sure and I think that Idol is turning that into a bit of a cheese fest. The way they light him and stick him among the throngs of girls is just cheesy and Ryan Seacrest doesn’t help that factor either. God that guy is bloody annoying sometimes!
None the less, Casey looked fantastic and the cougars were loving it. Lets hope that we can keep the Cougar dream alive and keep Casey going on American Idol. I think I big rebound by him could save this rather boring season.
Check out Casey this week and scroll down to see Lee & Crystal’s performances:
