WOW, that didn’t last for very long. A month ago, former child star Amanda Bynes made headlines for announcing her early retirement. She tweeted she was retiring from acting because it was no longer fun. I guess during her month-long hiatus, the 24-year-old former actress rediscovered the fun again.
In another tweet a few days ago, Bynes called off her self-imposed retirement with the simple “I’ve unretired”. Seven minutes later, she followed that with yet another tweet promoting her upcoming movie, Easy A. Even though she announced her intent to return to acting, she hasn’t scored a new role nor currently filming a movie. Was her “retirement” part of some grand mastermind plan to promote her film all along?
Amanda Bynes co-stars with Emma Stone in the upcoming teen-flick revolving around, what else… sex and gossip. The film is scheduled to hit theaters September 17, 2010.
Apparently not everyone was excited to see the Kings of Leon perform in St. Louis. The rock band was forced to cancel their gig at the Verizon Amphitheater just three songs in due to a constant bombardment of pigeon poop. The musicians tried to push forward despite being repeatedly splattered, but the final straw came when Jared Followill was hit with one extra-large dropping near his mouth.
Even though the Nashville band saw what their opening acts The Postelles and The Stills looked like after their sets (pigeon collateral damage), they didn’t immediately cancel their show. They tried to be good sports and went for it, but the situation became too ridiculous and disgusting. The last thing they wanted to be was completely covered in pigeon excrement.
When I was thinking about what I wanted to write today for a Behind The Cast, I thought, “Hmm, I don’t have anything to write about.” Then I realized, that couldn’t be further from the truth. With that, I’m going to tell you about some of the big things happening in my life over the summer.
Three years ago I opened up a men’s skincare & grooming store (and website) with my business partner Jamie, and this month it turns 3! Time has sure flown by and I’m really proud of what we’ve done. Next weekend we will be celebrating our anniversary in store on Saturday, July 31st. Check out the event for more details.
My boyfriend Tyrell and I have decided to take the big step and move into a new place together. So, I had the talk with my roommate Landon and in this past week, we started taking steps towards the big move. Lucky for Tyrell and I, as soon as I had changed my Facebook status to say that we were looking for a place, someone contacted me and the place they’re renting out is amazing. Great apartment, great view, awesome amenities, and it’s in between Masc and Donovan’s (with whom I work on Homorazzi stuff with). Perfecto! We move in September 1st! It’s gonna be a busy month.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Homorazzi.com and The Loden Hotel must cancel Thursday night’s highly-anticipated Pride Weekend Kick-Off Penthouse Party. It is with HUGE regret that we have to deliver this news but unfortunately all parties’ hands are tied. What was promoted with playful intentions has been taken out of context and reached governing powers.
We appreciate all the support and buzz generated for our annual event and it is with a sad and heavy heart we deliver this crushing news. I know many of you were looking forward to it.
Since both parties don’t want our selected charities to suffer, The Loden Hotel has graciously offered to donate $1000 amongst Friends For Life and YouthCO Aids Society.
Thank you again for your support and appreciate your understanding for this last minute cancellation and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Since our event is canceled, may we suggest the following events that are taking place Thursday:
PRIDE MOVIE NIGHT:
RAINBOW RISING @ 560: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=106713256047924
ODYSSEY CELEB SHOWER POWER
Vancouver Pride is only one week away and we continue to give you the inside scoop on where you need to be, when, and why. The legendary Rapture parties put on by Homorazzi’s own Tommy and his company The Flame & The Dame are a must for those seeking the biggest parties & most entertaining performances that everyone will be talking about.
