The hit MTV series Punk’d is rumored to be coming back with a new host – Justin Bieber. Smart MTV, smart. Ashton Kutcher who hosted the show the first time round, will be back as executive producer of this series comeback. It kinda makes sense for a younger kid to play the role of prankster, as opposed to Ashton.
Being a prankster myself, I loved the show (I have season one on DVD) and was disappointed when it ended back in 2007. I am a huge fan of hidden camera shows too. One of the best pranks was done to Justin Timberlake, when he thought his house was being repossessed due to unpaid taxes. He was almost in tears and his face was priceless.
Who do you think will be on his hit list? My guesses include: Cast of Glee, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Jersey Shore cast, and maybe even Taylor Swift.
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.
MY GENERATION SERIES PREMIERE
“My Generation” chronicles a documentary crew that follows a group of high-schoolers, from when they graduate in 2000, to present day where they return home for their 10-year reunion. When they come back home, they discover they’re not where they thought they’d be. The drama incorporates some of the most defining events in the past decade as the backdrop of the characters lives- from Y2K, to Enron, to 911 and the multitude of world-changing events that affected these fictitious characters and ourselves.
The show has been getting some awful reviews, but I have to say, I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the best drama ever, but it certainly has the foundation for a great show. While it’s daunting for any show to introduce nine main characters in the pilot, I feel the producers did a good job. There are a few that I really like and rooting for. The producers promised they would include real news footage as part of their storytelling. I have to say, their usage of “The Bachelor Season 2″ was pure genius and had me laughing out loud.
I hope ABC keeps the show around. It has great potential and compared to the other crappy new offerings this season, “My Generation” deserves a chance.
Series Premiere Grade: B
The 2010 MTV Music Video Awards are officially in the history books. What will the footnote be for this year’s telecast… zzzzzzzzz snoozefest. . Seriously, I found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of it this year. Perhaps because, there wasn’t that one big water cooler moment, everyone would be talking about the next day, or maybe because host Chelsea Handler failed to make me laugh or was it the lackluster performances. Whatever it was, it just didn’t live up to the hype. Maybe I’m being a little harsh due to the fact I high expectations for the show. Regardless of the negative nelly overall opinion, there were a few memorable moments worth mentioning. As a side note, can you spot SYTYCD alums Mark Kanemura and Neil Haskell in the picture above?
As you may or may not know, Justin Bieber has a guest starring role on the premiere episode CSI Las Vegas (my favorite one) this season, and I’m definitely curious as to if he’s going to play some sort of killer or if he’ll be the innocent victim…? Judging by the latest trailer, I’m thinking Bieber’s bad!
As the preview says, “He’s made millions of fans cry tears of joy, but this fall on ‘CSI,’ Justin Bieber will make you scream.”
This Bieber episode airs on their season premiere on Thursday, September 23rd.
Justin Bieber & Kanye West have teamed up with rapper Raekwon to remix Justin’s My World 2.0 song “Runaway Love”. Everybody wants a piece of the 16 year old Bieber! Earlier this month, 33 year old Kanye announced that he’d be releasing a new song every week until Christmas, so here’s the one for this week.
Rumor has it that the two will be performing together at the MTV Video Music awards coming up. How ironic that he be working and collaborating with a young star like Bieber, after slamming the young Taylor Swift last year on stage during her acceptance speech, saying she didn’t deserve to win and that Beyonce was the one who did. Ironic or strategy? My guess is the latter. Either that or he’s just straight up copying Usher, who worked with Bieber in one of my favorite songs of the year, “Somebody To Love“.
Another weekend in one hell of a hot summer can sometimes lead to trouble – and you know “Stars, they’re just like is” – only worse, most of the time. Bad choices in the beach party that is their lives can sometimes make their sandcastles come tumbling down – or help them out, depending on how you look at it.
This past weekend was no different. Celebs of all ages, genders, and sexualities all got into their own share of trouble.
Who got arrested for unpaid parking tickets over the weekend? Who crashed a high school prom? Which former boybander was thrown out of a Polo Club? Who tweeted their enemies phone number? Who was attacked while on stage?
Move over Katy Perry. Move over Jessica Simpson. There’s a new pitchman for Proactiv in town and his name is Justin Bieber. Joining an “illustrious long list of celebrities with complicated skin, Bieber is the newest face of the ubiquitous over-the-counter topical treatment for acne. Let’s face it, everyone has at one point seen these infomercials.
For years Judith Light (Who’s The Boss, Ugly Betty) was their exclusive celebrity spokesperson, and hosted several infomercials and segments on QVC. Then as wrinkles rather than adult acne became her biggest concern, other celebrities including Vanessa Williams, Julianne Hough, Avril Lavigne, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Aniston and many more stepped in.
We’ve often seen celebrities lend their name to various products oversees but sometimes not on American TV. Reason being, the Federal Trade Commission in the US requires that celebrities must use the products they endorse. Now we know the secret to Bieber’s baby smooth skin. Well that and the fact he’s only 16.
“I know that for a teenager, it doesn’t matter how many people are looking at you, you don’t want acne on your face,” Justin says. “I’m in the limelight all the time…I’m constantly doing interviews, constantly doing photo shoots and, you know, I’m determined to keep myself clear,”
