Two Actors Move Out From “90210?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It certainly doesn’t pay to grow old in Hollywood, as the old adage goes. Two of “90210′s” oldest characters are being shuffled off from the infamous zip code. Lori Loughlin, who plays Annie & Dixon’s mom, and Ryan Eggold, a teacher at West Bev High, are being written off the show at the end of the season.

With the kids graduating and heading off to college, the show will focus on the kids and less emphasis on the parents and high school teachers. Ironically enough, Ryan Eggold who plays Mr. Matthews is actually younger in real life than Trevor Donovan (Teddy), Liam (Matt Lanter) and Navid (Michael Steger).

Have you heard of Jessie J? If not, get ready to educate yourself. This amazing new talent from the UK could very well be the breakout music artist of 2011. Based on her new single and video, she stands a good chance of achieving that. I seriously can’t get enough of her infectious song. According to your feedback, you want more music posts and we’re going to deliver.

Born Jessica Ellen Cornish, the English songstress was born in the UK in 1988. Like many new singer/songwriters today, she first gained notoriety penning tracks for big names like Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera. She’s the genius who whipped up the melody for Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”. Don’t even hate, I know every gay has that track on their guilty pleasure playlist. Right?

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. Her vocal swagger is perfectly showcased in her upbeat, energetic reggae-infused new track, “Price Tag“. Jessie J’s booming voice shines even amid the glossy production.

Is Mona Lisa Really A Mona Larry?

In: Random Reads, The Arts, Tyrell

The Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings ever created by Leonardo da Vinci. According to the Louvre, that painting alone receives 1.7 million viewers annually. It is also one of the most studied pieces of art in the world. Questions from ‘who is Mona Lisa?’ to ‘what’s behind that smile?’ have been asked for centuries.

Now, researcher Silvano Vinceti who has been studying the painting for years says he has discovered the identity of Mona Lisa and that she is actually a he. Further, Vinceti claims that it is actually a portrait of Leonardo’s long-term young male assistant who was called Salai. His real name is known to be Gian Giacomo Caprotti.

Silvano is also stating that Salai owned the portrait up until the day he died in 1525. So did Leonardo and Salai have an intimate relationship or was it simply platonic?

Beavis And Butthead Are Coming Back

In: Patrick, TV Shows

America’s two favorite idiots, “Beavis and Butthead” are coming back to television this summer, as announced yesterday by the cast of MTV’s “Skins” (who weren’t even alive when this show was on) at the MTV upfronts. “Huh huh…sweet.”

Created by Mike Judge and first airing in 1993, the show was on TV for 200 episodes and created a lot of controversy for its content and language during that time. They even made the big screen in 1996, with the movie “Beavis and Butt-head Do America”. Since the show, Judge created “King of the Hill” and one of my favorite movies, “Office Space”, among others. He will be back for the return of the show and will be the voices of the characters just as before.

American Idol 10: Digs For Talent In Austin

In: Donovan, TV Shows

With four episodes down, I can confidently say “American Idol” is back. The show is really experiencing a renaissance with the new judging panel. Critics everywhere are giving praise for the chemistry Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson have. The trio were even on Oprah Winfrey to briefly talk about the show yesterday. Not only are the judges hitting all the right notes, but so are this year’s contestants. The talent this year is really starting to shine. Hopefully, the voting public will pick a winner that will actually sell records and not just make tween girls horny enough to flood telephone lines and go on texting frenzies.

After hitting New Jersey, Milwaukee, Nashville and New Orleans, American Idol headed off to Austin, hoping to find that oil wasn’t the only thing bountiful in Texas. This was the third time Idol hit the capital city of the Lone Star State. Will this time prove as fruitful as previous visits? Check out below to see who I thought stood out from last night’s episode.

Man Crush: Oliver Goodwill

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

It’s that time of the week for me to declare my undying love for an online crush. Since last week’s Man Crush selection was such a huge hit, I decided to pick another musician. Seriously, the amount of hits that Jon McLaughlin generated, surpassed my expectations. Here’s hoping Oliver Goodwill causes your heart to skip a beat as well.

Technically, Goodwill isn’t a musician but his association with the music industry is what put him on the map. He gained notoriety for appearing as the love interest in Evanescence’s “Call Me When You’re Sober” music video. That appearance lead his many fans to give him the nickname “Wolfie”. Since then, he’s worked steadily in minor television roles like “Entourage” and “Prescriptions“. He’s also appeared in movies such as “Richard III” and the low-budge comedy “Ella at Five”.

Oliver James Goodwill was born on October 25, 1982, in Wiltshire, England, UK. Originally he started out as a musician before turning to acting. He’s played drums professionally since the age of 7. He still dabbles in music and specializes in ambient, classical and electronica music. You can check out some of his stuff on his MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/oliverjamesgoodwill

The White Stripes Breakup

In: Music, Patrick

Jack and Meg White of The White Stripes announced today that their band has officially ended and that they not be making any new recordings or doing any live performances. In their vague explanation, the former married couple (now former bandmates) stated:

“The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.”

Jack White was the bands song writer and lead vocals, while Meg was the drummer, occasionally doing vocals as well. They’ve had 26 singles and three out their six albums earned them Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Music Album. Not bad at all!! Maybe they’re just tired or want to try something different. Nothing wrong with that.

Lindsay Lohan Reckless For A Necklace

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Fresh out of rehab, 24 year old Lindsay Lohan has apparently decided to start a new bad habit: Stealing. Now, that she’s taking a page out of Wynona Ryder’s book, will the ginger be heading back to jail?

On Tuesday, Lohan was accused of stealing a $2500 necklace from a store in Venice Beach. The police issued a warrant for her home, but late Tuesday night, a friend of Lohan turned the necklace into authorities. Lt. Jeff Bert told Radar Online that “if the DA’s office files charges, it could be grand theft which is a felony.”

I can’t help but picture a scene from Mean Girls for this scenario: “OMG, I love your bracelet necklace! Where did you get it!?”
