It’s not Grease Lightening. It’s Qantas. “Tell me about it…stud,” Olivia Newton John says to John Travolta in on Grease. When Oprah would scream his name (“John Travoltaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!” the audience would go wild. Now, he does safety videos for Qantas Airlines? Well, he’s not getting the same reactions he used to.

The people who work for Qantas aren’t big fans of this video. Of course getting John Travolta to do this video, Qantas was obviously looking for his celebrity status to bring something to the table, but the crew that actually work on the flights feel have described the video as “cringe-worthy,” “corny” and “tacky“. I’m sorry, but aren’t all airline safety videos all of the above?

“We feel it’s demeaning to be called ‘the team,’” an employee told Daily Telegraph. “It makes us feel like we work at McDonald’s…The whole thing seems to make the safety message seem trite.”

Uh oh, now anyone that works at a fast food restaurant is going to be pissed with Quantas. Personally, I don’t think the word team means you work in fast food, and if you do, who cares. I’m sure someone else could be like, “Ew, don’t call us crew, you make us feel like we work on a plane,” you know? Anyway, watch the video after the jump…

Guess I never got the memo that Wilmer Valderrama was one hot piece of ass. For years, I was always baffled on how Fez from “That 70s Show” was such a chick magnet. He always had the latest young “It” girl on him arms. From Lindsay Lohan, Ashlee Simpson, Mila Kunis and Mandy Moore, Wilmer was never seen alone and one of Hollywood’s busiest playboys.

As you can see in the picture above, Wilmer is looking better with age. The picture on the left was taken a few months ago in Miami. I’m the last person to judge bodies, and think he looks alright. Nothing to write home about and wouldn’t call him out of shape, but I definitely wouldn’t write a post about it. Fast forward to today, when a picture of Wilmer showed up on everyone’s favorite iPhone website, Someone’s definitely been working on his fitness. Don’t take my word for it, check out a sweaty sexy toned Wilmer below.

By now I’m sure you’ve all seen the video of 15 year old Casey Heynes finally sticking up for himself to 12 year old bully, Richard Gale. The footage captured on video shocked the world as Gale, out of nowhere, goes up to Heynes and starts punching him to the point that Heynes snaps and picks him up and throws him on the ground. He stood up to his bully and inspired people around the world to stand up for themselves.

Over the weekend, I watched a video interview with Casey Heynes, where he talks about how he’d been bullied all of his life and talks about what had been going through his mind at the time. Now, for the first time, Richard Gale speaks out about his side of the story. He claims that Heynes started it and he doesn’t seem very remorseful at all. He even was unsure as to whether he was sorry and unsure as to whether or not he’ll bully again. I do feel bad for his parents though. This kid is hated all around the world and of course they feel some responsibility. Check out both interviews below.

WOW! I was kinda “meh” about this new singing competition before, but after seeing the promo, I’m officially intrigued. The show is named “The Voice” because the audition is based purely on the voice – literally. The judges have their backs turned to the singers and only get to hear their voice. In case you don’t know, the judges are Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. The show is hosted by Carson Daly.

In the promo, Adam Levine explains, “The biggest difference between this show and all of the other vocal competition shows is that it’s a blind audition…Remember the ’70s? There were some sketchy-looking people that had gorgeous voices.” He has a point.

I’m also really excited to see Christina Aguilera in this role. She gets such a bad rap all the time that I’m hoping for her sake that she can show a different side of herself, maybe shed some tears, and build her career back up again.

Rising Artist Spotlight: Jessie And The Toy Boys

In: Donovan, Music

I haven’t done a Rising Artist Spotlight post in a while, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to highlight a new artist, who’s debut single I’ve been listening quite a bit. Meet Jesse Malakouti, the voice and creative mind of Jesse and the Toy Boys. This enigmatic blond is ready to make her mark on the music scene with her catchy electronic-rooted pop music. Her first single, “Push It” combines an urgent club bassline with vibrant, sixties-spiked girl-group colors. Her vocals display brash and rock qualities with a sex-kitten twist. If you love playful fun pop music, Jesse and the Toy Boys is for you.

Making electro-pop magic wasn’t always in the cards for Jesse. At age 16 she left home and couch surfed in Los Angeles while taking odd jobs. During this time she fronted a rock band, Shut Up Stella, that built a decent West Coast following. As time went on, she found herself no longer wanting to make angry music. Instead she was in the head space to write happy pop songs. Thankfully she changed her tune, literally, and devoted her musical talents to savvy smart pop that we can enjoy.

“I’d been in a band that left me feeling like I needed to break out of my comfort zone and gather new perspective and experience,” she says. “So, I went to the U.K., which is where a lot ofimportant and trend-setting music is made. I went alone. I needed to live by my musical wits and instincts for a while, and see where it took me.”

Cue Alanis Morrissette’s “Ironic“. It’s such a fitting song for this twist of fate. The Las Vegas Deputy District Attorney who prosecuted both Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton for cocaine possession was arrested himself on Saturday night for, ironically enough, possession of cocaine. WOW, that must blow, literally. David Schubert was booked and later released from the Clark County Detention Center. I wonder if he’ll be allowed to prosecute himself. LOL.

Both Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton were busted on two separate incidents for drug possession in Sin City back in September 2010. Schubert prosecuted the two cases which saw both celebrities plead guilty and handed relatively light sentences. Mars paid a fine, assigned to community hours and mandatory drug counseling sessions, something very similar to what Paris received. She also was sentenced to a fine and community hours, 200 to be exact. In addition, she was warned that if she was arrested for anything else in the next year, she would automatically spend a year in jail.

No comments or statements by David Schubert or his office has been issued yet, but I expect something in the next day or so. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of sentence the city employee receives for his transgression. Will he be treated more or less severely based on his position? Somewhere out there, both Paris and Bruno are giving each other a virtual high-five.

See Tom Hardy’s Not So “Hardy”

In: Donovan, Movies

If you’ve ever wondered what the hunky “Inception” star was packing, well wonder no more. Tom Hardy is taking it all off for the sake of art. He appears in a film short titled, “Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother“, directed by Greg Williams. The English actor plays an abusive older brother who’s eminent enlistment into the French Army fuels the rivalry between him and his younger brother.

Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother” was filmed in Berkshire last year. It makes its debut at the 1st annual New York Digital Short Film Festival on March 28, 2011. Here’s some info about the festival:

The New York Digital Short Film Festival is an industry-changing event focusing on Innovation in Filmmaking using State of the Art DSLR Digital Video Technologies. This film festival is for the filmmaker who exhibits excellence in Directing, Writing and Cinematography with an emphasis on stretching the limits of today’s standards in film.

If you’re in the New York area, you can catch a screening at The Directors Guild of America Theatre. You can purchase tickets for this event through the festival’s website. But if want to watch it in the comfort of your home or during some down time at work, you can see the short below. Keep in mind there is some nudity in the clip.

ABC’s Dancing With the Stars newest season debuts tonight. While some people are saying that this is the season of unknowns, this is the season of most knowns for me. Even if I don’t follow their careers whole-heartedly, I have heard their names or no in essence what they do. This season I think brings a great mix of competitors who are ready to take on the challenge and show everyone what they are made of. Within this group however will be the ones that fall off early, the ones that fly under the radar and of course, the ones that will stride to the top like its their job. So here are my picks and predictions for this upcoming ballroom season.

The Ones To Watch

When I pick out the ones to watch, I put a few things together first: previous dance experience, mobility (in accordance to their career), and who their pro partner is. Knowing Chelsea Kane is a brand of the Disney factory and that Mark Ballas, I think she’ll be a hot contender this season. Along with her I put karate kid Ralph Macchio and Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson. I know. A lot of you are wondering where Kirstie Alley is. Well, as much as I know she’ll be one to watch… I don’t know if it’ll be for the right reasons IMHO.

See the rest of my predictions after the jump.
