New York recording artist, Chase (otherwise known as Michael Chase DiMartino) has just informed me that he’s released another delicious song/video called “Hard Candy“. The song us just as catchy as the last one I told you about, “Nasty Habit,” but the sexuality and hotness factor went through the roof with this video. Actually, there’s two videos – a part one and two. If you read my last post, you may remember that Michael Chase DiMartino is also a Sign Language interpreter. He started making videos on YouTube, remaking hit songs like Bad Romance, etc., but in sign language. Then, he went onto creating his own. With the release of this video, Chase has discussed a little about his sexuality. He starts off by saying:
“Gay? Who me? Not such a big issue to me. I don’t believe music has a gender. It has no sex. The art of music does not differentiate between its gay or straight counterparts. For myself, I identify as gay only because it seems to be the most …easily explained, and also, more readily accepted. But if I were to break it down, I would say this: ‘I truly believe myself to love a person for who they are. Gender unattached. I believe that if the right female came along, I could fall in love (and have, with women in the past). But as it stands right now, I am in love with one who happens to be a male.’ “
Good grief. The 22 year old is my favorite Jersey Shore girl, but I really don’t think she needs a BOOK DEAL! Seriously? Jersey Shore’s Snooki (AKA Nicole Polizzi). The novel will be called “A Shore Thing,” and it will be published by Gallery Books in January 2011.
The editor-in-chief of Gallery Books asks, “Who better than Snooki to write a fun, sexy novel about a single girl looking for love on the Jersey Shore?”
And there you have it: The scandalous, slutty, shorty from the shore is going to be an author. I’m sure all those real authors out there are thrilled to welcome her to the book club.
Lucasfilm announced today that all six of the Star Wars movies will be returning to theaters to follow the trend in 3-D films. The first film to hit the screen will be Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, which will be released sometime in 2012. Wowsa, this is gonna take forever to get through all six of them.
The conversion to 3-D is being handled by an outside company, headed by visual effects supervisor John Knoll. He informed Variety, “Having seen a lot of stereo material, I have very strong opinions about what I like and don’t like about stereo. It’s not going to look like [conversions] we’ve seen in the past.”
The video for Shakira‘s “Loca” was just released today, and it is hot, hot, hot. In the sexy city of Barcelona, Spain, the Columbian superstar shakes her hips & roller skates all around town among fans, even ending up in a water fountain, in her guerilla style video. The video was directed by Jaume de Laiguana, who also directed her “No” and “Gypsy” vids.
A shirtless Dizzee Rascal (Rapper who has four #1 singles in his home, the UK) puts on his own spin as he raps in the video on the beach.
A source told The Daily Star that, “The lyrics of Loca are about Shakira being crazy so she wanted a video that really showed her personality”. You may have heard that last month Shakira was fined by Spanish authorities for dancing in the fountain without a permit.
At last, the heavily promoted Britney Spears finally aired last night. So how was it? “Ooops, they did it again“, Ryan Murphy delivered another entertaining episode. It wasn’t as good as last week, but I enjoyed it. Not sure if it was because of the storyline or just my tremendous LOVE for Brittany S. Pierce. While the artist-centric episodes are fun to watch, I much prefer the episodes where the performances are based on different musical acts.
Besides Miss Britney Spears making three surprise cameos throughout the episode, the show featured the debut of John Stamos as Emma’s new hotto dentist boyfriend and the return of Will’s ex-wife, Terri. Stamos is 47-years-old, but still as tasty as ever. That salt-n-pepper thing really works for him.
The episode titled “Britney/Brittany” also marked the singing debut of Heather Morris’ Brittany. Considering she’s a dancer first, her voice wasn’t bad. Definitely at the same level as other noted dancers who later became singers, like Paula Abdul and Jennifer Lopez. Glad to see the producers finally dedicate an entire episode on Brittany. Once again, she was on fire with her signature random one-liners.
Britney Spears even tweeted while watching the episode. I’ve placed a few of her tweets after each performance. The rest of her comments can be found at the end of the post.
DAY-UM, Heather Morris (Brittany) has a smokin’ body. And don’t even get me started on her dancing. Glee’s Brittany can dance circles around the other Britney. PS. How lucky was she to straddle John Stamos during her routine. This is the first time we’ve heard Heather sing and she surprised me. She’s actually not half bad. Probably auto-tuned to death, not much different from Miss Spears herself.
Britney’s tweet: “Slave: Oh…My…God…!”
Britney’s tweet: “I know how hard it is to dance with that snake! Nice job….”
Michale Buble does Justin Bieber. No, not that way. Get your mind out of the gutters. The Canadian crooner pays homage, slash pokes fun of the Canadian tween sensation. Bieber isn’t the only one, Buble impersonates for his “Hollywood” music video. Clint Eastwood, James Dean and other Hollywood stereotypes are other personas Buble takes on.
“The video is about celebrity culture, people’s dreams about fame and what can go with it,… You can see what fun I had playing the characters.” – Michael Buble
The track is not as catchy as his “Haven’t Met You Yet” single or video, but it’s still very peppy. “Hollywood” is making a decent showing on the Billboard charts, especially the AC one. Buble is his usual charming self in the video, and it’s great to see his comedic side. His Bieber costume is pretty bang on. Thanks for giving me an idea for a Halloween costume this year.
Can Brenchel be the next Jeff & Jordo? Looks like they could be. Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly are following in the footsteps of BB Season 11′s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd by appearing on the daytime soap opera, “The Bold and The Beautiful“. I wonder if anyone on the show will get in between her and her man. The duo are set to appear in two episodes of the sudser on October 25 & 26.
Even though most of their castmates didn’t believe they would last, it looks like Big Brother 12′s most polarizing showmance are still together. Rachel hasn’t moved to Los Angeles yet, but she did tell Entertainment Weekly that she is in the process of making it happen. Judging from her statement, she is still madly in love with the hunky Brendon (I would be too). The dude is sexy, sexy, sexy.
“Everyone wants to know when there will be a proposal and a wedding,” she gushes. “We are head over heels in love. I’m so lucky to be with him. I foresee a long future together. He is my missing puzzle piece!”
Take your first look at American Idol’s Season 10 judges first day on the job. Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez joined Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson for the first time on the panel during the Jersey City, New Jersey auditions. Returning executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe tweeted the above picture.
I’m not sure how I feel about the placement of the judges. It looks to me that Jackson is occupying Simon’s old spot. Let’s hope he’s NOT the main voice and moderator for this season. If he is, I’m officially resigning from this show. I’d rather have both Ellen & Kara back instead of enduring him utter another “dawg”, “pitchy” or “keeping it real” next season. Having said that, seeing the judges together for the first time behind the panel, makes me uber excited to see what their chemistry is like when Idol returns.
