This just in, PeongChang has been named the 2018 Winter Olympics host city. It is located approximately 180 km east of Seoul, the capital of South Korea. PeongChang is actually the first city to receive full majority in the first round in the history of the modern Olympic games. It will also be the first time the Winter Olympics were awarded to an Asian country other than Japan. The city bid for the 2014 games, but lost them to Sochi, Russia. In 2010, PeongChang also beat out Vancouver in the first round for votes, but Vancouver ended up winning in the end.

The three cities that were finalists this time round were Munich, Germany, Annecy, France and PyeongChang, South Korea. Once the votes had been cast, IOC President Jaques Rogge declared that a host city had been chosen, meaning one of three had received majority vote.

The simple answer… both of them. The latest in “Law & Order: SVU’s” 13th season casting dramz, sees two former fan favorite ADAs coming back. This almost makes up for the loss of Christoper Meloni (Stabler) for next season- almost being the operative word. Both Stephanie March and Diane Neal will be reprising their roles for a yet-to-be-determined amount of episodes for the show’s 2011-12 season.

March who played ADA Alexandria Cabot appeared on the show as a series regular for the Seasons 2-4, then went part-time in Seasons 5, 6, 10, 11. Last time she appeared on the show, she left for Africa to fight for women’s rights. This was the second time she left the show. The first time had her hiding in the Witness Protection Program after her life was in danger.

Discovery Channels Gaga In Shark Week Promo

In: Patrick, TV Shows, Videos

As we delve deeper into summer, we’re getting that much closer to the annual “Shark Week” on the Discover Channel. For me, sharks and snakes are my biggest fears. With that said, I’m also completely fascinated by them and when I catch visuals of them when flipping through the channels, I always stop & watch. In fact, as a kid I used to be obsessed with the “Jaws” series and “Baywatch“.

Promos for this year’s Shark Week have started airing and apparently even the Discover Channel has gone Gaga! They’re using Lady Gaga’s song, “Teeth” as the anthem for their Shark Week promo, which both fits and doesn’t fit at the same time. LOL. You’ll never hear me asking a shark, “Show me your teeth!” I’ll pass.

Shark Week premieres on July 31st on the Discover Channel and this year, it’ll feature their first-ever Chief Shark Officer, Andy Samberg (pictured above). Brilliant! Check out the promo below.

The Lip Sync Kid or Keenan Cahill has released his latest lip sync video and this time, it’s a real good one. Lately, this kid has garnered some serious celebrity attention with cameos from the likes of 50 Cent and DJ Pauly D. This time while attending the Glee Tour, Keenan went backstage and made friends with a few cast members.

Joining Keenan on his latest video are Darren Criss, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz in a rendition of Katy Perry’s newest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.). This video is actually adorable. What I enjoy most is watching Darren Criss show off his true personality; he’s such a ham.

Cahill is 16-years-old and suffers from Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome but has made quite the name for himself by making viral videos of himself lip syncing to pop songs. Look how cute he is. No wonder stars jump at the chance to be in his videos.

Check out Cahill’s latest video here…

SYTYCDC Season 4: Meet The Boys

In: Dan, Patrick, TV Shows

As mentioned in my “Meet The Girls” article, it’s So You Think You Can Dance overload right now at four nights a week (Monday to Thursday) now that both the Canadian and U.S. versions on at the same time. Last night, the Top 20 dancers were to be announced for the Canadian version, and in a twist, for the second year in a row it turned out to be a Top 22. The boys were the first to learn of the twist when the bottom three remaining boys thought one of them was going to be on the chopping block, when in fact they all made it through.

This year, for the first time someone from Manitoba was represented – Moses Layco! I know the guy and he actually lives here in Vancouver now – such a great guy and an amazing dancer! He even brought Tre to tears in last week’s episode. He’ll do Manitoba proud for sure. In fact, the whole ensemble this year is amazing (and good looking too!) Holy abs, Batman! (Sidenote: There are a record 13 contestants from Ontario that make up the Top 22 this year).

Watch the Top 22 as they compete for Canada’s votes beginning Monday, July 11 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV. In the meantime, get to know your Top 11 Boys below.

For as long as there has been Lady Gaga, the gays have followed giving her one of her most loyal and faithful fan bases. In return, Gaga has been an advocate for gay rights and marriage equality as well as the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. But there are some out there who think that Gaga is just exploiting her gay fans for record sales. She thinks that’s absolutely ridiculous.

“My love for my gay fans is just pure, authentic love for them as supporters of me from the beginning, and me feeling connected to their struggles as someone who is a part of their fight. To say that I would use the gay community to sell records is probably one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me as a person. I would say the top thing I think about every single day of my life, other than my fans, loving the music, and my family being healthy, is social justice and equality.”

Gaga admits in her interview that she considers herself a part of the LGBT community, specifically, the B. She even recalls a story about a young man in the military who opened up to her about how America’s fight for equality has brought him hope. He gave her his service jacket as a symbol of thanks and gratitude for everything she has done to support the fight.

Last night, the Top 20 dancers were to be announced for the Canadian version, and in a twist, for the second year in a row it turned out to be a Top 22.

The whole ensemble this year is very talented. It’s great to see Shelaina Anderson back again and hopefully this time she’ll stay a while! Jordan Clark was the first one to dance her solo, and boy does her body move in mysterious ways. Such and interesting dancer to watch! Lastly, it’s great to see Teya Wild in the Top 22! I know her from here in Vancouver. You go, girl!

Bieber’s Vanity Fair Cover Bombs

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Oh oh. Are we seeing the end of Bieber Fever? Too bad since I recently just caught a bit of it after watching his film Never Say Never. However, as a wise man once said, the numbers don’t lie and unfortunately for Bieber, they didn’t fair well for his Vanity Fair cover issue. Vanity Fair is claiming that issue with an over-kissed Justin on the front was their worst selling issue in 12 years. YIKES!

According to WWD, the magazine sold 246,000 copies. It’s the not the worst selling Vanity Fair issue however. Will Smith’s cover depicting him on a black stallion and promoting his movie Wild Wild West sold less than that and a 1993 cover with Harrison Ford also only sold just above the 200,000 margin.

While Justin Bieber seems to turn everything he touches into gold, it looks like it couldn’t even save his Vanity Fair cover. Maybe VF readers are too old to appreciate Justin’s youthful appeal. Maybe Bieber’s army of loyal fans and supporters aren’t big magazine buyers or subscribers.
