Well, last week’s episode was extremely intense to say the least and Francesca was the first person to be voted out and sent to Redemption Island. She left her pal Kristina (who has an immunity idol) behind and this week we’ll see how well she copes with Boston Rob (who’ll be out to get her) and Phillip who’ll be driving her mad. At the beginning of this episode, Francesca checks out her new “pad” on Redemption Island and seems hopeful for her chance at getting back in the game later on. I’m not as confident in her as she is, but I hope she surprises me because she’s awesome!


With Francesca getting voted out last week, Kristina couldn’t be happier that she didn’t play the idol. When they got back to camp, Phillip tells Boston Rob that he owns his vote until he is sent to Redemption Island. WTF? This guys is a nut job. Shortly after, Boston Rob tells his girl alliance/followers that Phillip will be the next to go.

A showmance is budding between Andrea and Matt, and Boston Rob is keeping a close eye. In fact, he decides to talk to Natalie about it and they discuss breaking them up by voting Andrea out. NO – vote Phillip out!

Jessie J Is A “Casualty of Love”

In: Donovan, Music

A couple of weeks ago I started my new series “Rising Artist Spotlight” and Jessie J was my inaugural selection. She’s a supremely talented UK singer who currently has an infectious pop hit on her hands which I’m loving more and more each day. “Price Tag” is the second single of her upcoming debut album, “Who We Are“. The buzz and demand for more tracks from her fans is so great, her label has bumped up her album’s release date to February 28 in the UK and April 12 in the US.

To keep her momentum going, the British Songstress released another single from her forthcoming CD. “Casualty of Love” is a different change of pace from her previous releases- it’s more slow-paced and soulful. I think it’s a wise move by her and her management to showcase another sound to show how diverse she is. Whatever the reason, I’m glad they did because I love this R&B-infused jam. In this day and age where electro-pop and dance are ruling the airwaves, it’s nice to slow things down every once in a while.

To classify Jessie J to a specific musical genre would be a disservice to her and to the world. Mix a bit of Rihanna with Gwen Stefani, add the charisma of Pink, and you will start to get an idea of what kind of girl Jessie J is. Don’t be fooled by her perfectly styled jet black bob, the girl has soulful pipes that would make Aretha Franklin take notice. Check out her new offering below.

Nate Berkus Does Next Magazine

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!

Sexy gay designer and talk show host, Nate Berkus is on the front cover of Next Magazine‘s latest “New York’s Gay Guide” issue which comes out this Friday. How stunning does he look on the cover? Wow. In the article he covers all areas that you may be curious about (well, maybe not everything…ahem). On being openly gay on national television, Berkus says, “I’m very free in talking about my sexuality on TV. I want my audience to see people presented in a respectable way, so they can make their own decisions about how they feel.”

Berkus currently lives in New York where he has maintained an apartment for over ten years and loves shopping in the city. “I like to go to the different consignment and retail shops like Fisch for the Hip on 18th Street and Seventh [Avenue],” he explains in the article. Although he loves to shop, he’s not big on going to the gay bar, but would rather entertain. “A gay bar isn’t my thing – I like having people over,” he says. “In Chicago I went to bed at 9:30pm, maybe, and that was a late night and here I have dinner reservations at 9:30. But I love being in New York.” Maybe it’s because in Chicago, Oprah was his chaperone?

Gay icon, Kylie Minogue kicked off her “Aphrodite Les Folies 2011” World Tour in Herning, Denmark over the weekend, and some videos of the show have surfaced online to quench your thirst. Australia’s Madonna looks hot as ever in her two hour concert as she performs songs from her new album along with some of her classics, including my favorite, “Can’t Get You Outta My Head”.

The concert set looks amazing and Kylie looked gorgeous in the assortment of costumes designed exclusively for her by the legendary designers, Dolce & Gabbana. The show features 10 dancers and 8 flying aerialists throughout the evening. Check out some of the footage below. Do you have a ticket to the concert?

With my predictions for the supporting acting categories revealed, I’m now setting my sights on the lead ones. First on the docket are the five beautiful and talented ladies fighting it out for the Best Actress Oscar.

Together they have seven Oscar nominations among them, with one win by Nicole Kidman. With exception to Jennifer Lawrence, all these women have experienced the magic of Oscar night and all the pressure and excitement the night brings. So, will it be Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman or Michelle Williams crying her eyes out on Sunday night? Check out my commentary and see which of these talented ladies will take home an Oscar?

Lindsay Lohan Faces The Judge Today…

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Lindsay Lohan is at her second home today (the courtroom) facing the judge on her probation and grand theft cases and the rumor is that the Judge Keith L. Schwartz is set on making Lindsay do time. According to TMZ, the plea bargain they are trying to get her to accept is rumored to be her accepting jail time for the probation violation & three years felony probation for the grand theft case. Along with that though…if she gets in trouble during the three years, she’ll go to state prison.

Lohan insists that she is innocent and apparently will not be accepting any plea bargain and will go to trial to attempt to clear her name on this matter. “Ms. Lohan maintains her innocence, and now that I’ve seen the police reports, I believe the case is entirely defensible,” her lawyer said in an interview with CNN last week. “Having said that, we will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her career.”

Glee To Debut 2 Original Songs

In: Donovan, Music

Somewhere out there, Journey is shedding a tear. Why? Because “Glee” is about to debut two original songs. For the first time in the show’s history, a song other than a cover will be sung by New Directions. If this experiment turns out to be a smashing success, Journey and other musical acts can kiss those huge royalties they’ve been cashing, “bye, bye, bye”.

The idea of the Glee club singing an original song was recently teased in an episode, when the group discussed the set list for the upcoming sectionals. The show enlisted pop hit maker Max Martin to create a hit track for the show. Martin who’s created hits for Britney Spears, Pink, Usher, Katy Perry to name a few, co-wrote one of Glee’s two original tracks. “Loser Like Me” is an energetic up-tempo ensemble track. The other track, “Get It Right” is a ballad written by an undisclosed writer. Lea Michele who plays Rachel Berry will get the honor of belting out that track. I expect it’ll be a little Celine Dion mixed with a dash of Barbra Streisand.

Elisabetta Canalis Thinks She Can Dance

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

It’s a good thing she’s smokin’ hot, because Elisabetta Canalis’ dancing is “non va bene” (Italian for not good). The 32-year-old Italian stunner, who’s currently dating George Clooney, recently performed, and I use that word loosely, a dance number to Ciara’s “Like A Boy”. The performance was for the 61st Italian Music Festival at the Ariston Theatre in San Remo, Italy.

Canalis wore a sexy outfit complemented with a top hat and tuxedo tails while doing her best impression of a hip hop music video girl. Throughout the entire performance, she seemed either a beat faster or slower than her backup dancers. Speaking of which, Valerio whom she introduces later is one sexy mofo. I’d ravage his cannelloni in a minute. Ahhhh, I digress.

If a North American actress had performed this, she would’ve been eaten alive by the press and blogsphere. You have to watch this cringeworthy performance. No joke, I feltsecondhand embarrassment just watching it. Poor, girl. Oh well, at least she’s hot. If it’s true what they say about dancing skills being directly related to your lovemaking skills, I fear for George Clooney’s penis.
