MTV VMA 2011 Nominees Announced

In: Music, Patrick

We’re almost halfway through the summer, which means we’re getting closer to the 2011 MTV VMA Awards. This one is my favorite music awards show because it’s always the most entertaining. So many memorable moments take place at this show: Britney & Madonna kissed, Britney had her “Gimme More” train wreck performance, Brandy & Monica performed together (proving they weren’t feuding), Gaga wore a meat dress, and many more.

This year, it’s Katy Perry that is leading the pack of nominations. She has a total, of nine nominations which include “Video of the Year” and “Best Female Video,” for her explosive hit, “Firework,” “Best Pop Video” for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)“, and “Best Special Effects” for her “out of this world” hit “E.T.” featuring Kanye West. Speaking of Kanye, he has the most nominations for a male artists with a total of seven (including the collaboration with Perry).

Check out the rest of the nominees below. I’ll tell you this much, it’ll be nice to have an award show that isn’t going to be dominated by Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga for once…

What started as an online TwitPic trend has now caught fire in Hollywood. Do you know what it is? I’ll give you hint. The idea is to appear light as a feather, but stiff as a board. Don’t get it yet? The best photos are done when you are propped between two objects. Did you guess planking? If you did, then you’re right. The trend has hit stars like Justin Bieber, Rosario Dawson and even Usher. But, one star in particular isn’t too found of the term nor the trend. Xzibit took to Twitter yesterday to express his disinterest in planking.

“Planking is THE dumbest sh-t ever. #Planking was a way to transport slaves on ships during the slave trade, its not funny. Educate.”

Is this true? I’m not sure so I took to two really trusty sources of information: Google and Wikipedia to get an answer. While the exact term planking may not have been used by slave traders, the physicality of the online game does bare some resemblance however. Slaves were forced to lay face-down on wooden beds with their arms pressed against their sides, chained to their waist. Often, they were stacked on top of each other without room to move.

Alright, so Xzibit may have seen the similarities however, I don’t think the initial intention of the game was to offend anyone or any race. The game did incur a casualty in Australia after a man fell seven stories attempting to plank on his balcony. Yikes. Let me just, please practice safe planking. Now check out some celebs planking below.

The Lip Sync Kid or Keenan Cahill has released his latest lip sync video and this time, it’s a real good one. Lately, this kid has garnered some serious celebrity attention with cameos from the likes of 50 Cent and DJ Pauly D. This time while attending the Glee Tour, Keenan went backstage and made friends with a few cast members.

Joining Keenan on his latest video are Darren Criss, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz in a rendition of Katy Perry’s newest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.). This video is actually adorable. What I enjoy most is watching Darren Criss show off his true personality; he’s such a ham.

Cahill is 16-years-old and suffers from Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome but has made quite the name for himself by making viral videos of himself lip syncing to pop songs. Look how cute he is. No wonder stars jump at the chance to be in his videos.

Katy Perry Joins Club Ginger

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

I don’t know what’s in the water in the Hollywood hills, but it’s causing starlets to drastically change their hair color. Gone are the days of adding a few hi-lites or lo-lites to your mop to give you a fresh change. Now, it’s all about giving your head a whole new deck of color. So who’s the latest to join Club Ginger? None other than California Girl Katy Perry.

While in Miami, FL on her California Dreams Tour, Katy took some time off to splash around in a pool with some friends. While showing off her fabulous bod in an itsy-bitsy teenie-weenie pink and purple polka-dot bikini, she had everyone talking about something other than her fit body; her new hair color.

Last week Katy tweeted, “tonight I dye my hair a different color… Can you guess which color?!” However, she has now gone on to explain that this color is only a three week pit stop before transitioning into her true desired color. So why the 3 week wait? Because her hair was dark for so long, she couldn’t get the color she wanted in just one session. Therefore, she must stay ginger for three weeks and then her hair can be dyed the way she wants it. Anyone out there think she’s going blonde?

Ahead of schedule, Katy Perry’sLast Friday Night” music video has leaked and we have your first look at the full version. The 26 year old recently gave us a little teaser of the 80s “Teenage Dream house party” music video, and let me tell you… the full version does not disappoint.

We were informed that Rebecca Black, of the infamous “Friday” single, was enlisted to be in the video (which is SUCH a brilliant idea), but I had no idea how big her role would be. To my delight, Black is essentially with Perry the whole time in the video, helping her transform from the goofy “Kathy Beth Terry” with head head gear, to the more sexy “Kathy Beth Terry” with braces. Rebecca Black doesn’t look as “awkward teenager” in this video and plays a much more confident, sexed up version of herself.

Other familiar faces in the video include Kevin McHale (who plays a nerdy character that is head over heals for Kathy), Hanson, and Kenny G. In my opinion, the whole 80s themed video was done really well and Katy Perry played an awkward geek amazingly. In fact, I actually laughed out loud a few times at her goofiness. One last thing, keep your eyes peeled for a hot guy with amazing abs in the video! Enjoy!

Katy Perry & Rebecca Black Join Forces On Friday

In: Donovan, Music

Fittingly enough, Katy Perry debuts her new music video this Friday. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” is Katy’s fifth single from her multi-platinum album, “Teenage Dream”. The CD has already yielded four number one singles in a row. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” certainly has a lot to live up to. To keep her fans happy til the video premieres on Friday, Perry is giving a sneak peek.

Based on the thirty second clip, it’s going the retro route with an 80s themed party. There’s lots of visual references from the “Me Decade”. If that wasn’t cheesy enough, Rebecca Black of “Friday” fame, makes a cameo in the vid. That being said, trying to pick her out in the party scene is sort of a “Where’s Waldo” game. See if you can spot her out. Perry certainly has a hard-on for Black. Not only has she included her in the video, but she’s incorporated the CGI bulletin board from Black’s video as well in the trailer. Plus, she also covered Black’s ubiquitous hit during one of her concert tour stops.

In the video below titled “Katy & I,” you’ll meet a guy named Jack Moore who is crazy obsessed with Katy Perry. He’s essentially a Katy Perry hoarder. He jokes about the fact that his room (covered in Perry pictures) resembles that of someone who’d be depicted as a serial killer in the movies. Very creepy.

Despite the fact that I’m weirded out, I do feel bad for him considering he’s received a lot of hate (some of which is homophobic) online for his fascination with Katy Perry. I don’t know the whole situation, but I think his parents should have tried to tone this obsession down so this guy could have focussed more of his attention on his own life, rather than spending all of his time and money on all things Katy Perry. It’s never too! Time for a Katy Perry intervention, Jack!

Oh, and by the way, be sure to keep your eyes peeled in the video for a mouse or rat that runs across his bed at the 1:27 mark!

The Glee Project Cast Go Boom Boom Boom

In: Donovan, TV Shows

A month ago, I introduced to you the cast of Oxygen’s “The Glee Project“. With less than two weeks before its premiere, the network is giving you a closer look at the 12 contestants vying for a recurring guest role on “Glee’s” upcoming third season. The winner of the competition will score a coveted seven-episode arc which could be the launching pad for their career. Just look what it’s done for Season 2 addition, Darren Criss, who just so happens to be the first episode’s guest mentor. Other Glee stars will appear in subsequent weeks.

The Glee hopefuls channel their inner Gleeks and perform a group performance worthy of the hit Fox show. They perform a cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework”. Even though, the track is my least favorite Perry track, the kids’ performance has me stoked for the show’s debut on Sunday, June 12 at 9 p.m. EST on Oxygen. Check out their rendition and see if it compares to Lea Michele’s version on the show. I think it would be wise for Rachel Berry to watch her back.
