Rove in the US...again

ROVE McManus is going to host a 1 hour long tv show in the US that will air on ABC next Wed 12/24. The show will be a countdown of pop culture highlights from the year.
I am happy for Rove, but don't want him to come here & become "americanized"! Have to run & set my tivo now...

I can't take how cute this kid is!!

V, or as I call it, Viva Australia!

V AUSTRALIA has started a ticket war with Qantas. They are selling fares from Australia to the US for $1199 return! I love Richard Branson!

Teen gossip

Demi Lovato, or Miley 2.0, wanted to declare that she NEVER kissed a Jonas Brother. Ok, I see that this is important to the world, so I declare that I never kissed a Jonas Brother either. Now everyone can get on with their lives again.

My heart will go on and on

OMG, Jack is alive and they are finally together! I knew the water wasn't that cold....

Ah, young love

In a recent interview, Pete Wentz, husband of Ashlee Simpson said the following about their first time: "It was the single best sexual encounter I've ever had. We were in the Soho Grand Hotel, and there was a mirror, and I was like, 'Oh my God, you're banging the girl of your dreams and you're watching it right now.' "
See my friends, romance is not dead!

Talk dirty to me...in the strip club?

Apparently Marisa Tomei studied the girls from Bret Michaels' show Rock Of Love, to research her new role as a stripper in her upcoming film. W-H-A-T? Do you mean some of these girls were strippers??? I find that hard to believe...

In breaking British news...


Prince Harry turns his back on the royal family and auditions to be the newest member of The Village People for the comeback tour.

Turns out a lot of people agree with me!

AUSTRALIA, my island home

I don't listen to critics bc it is just one person's opinion. Here is my review of Australia the movie. I LOVED IT. Done. I don't know what the problem was that all of these "critics" had with it. I admit I am bias & yes some of the story was predictable & a bit cheesy, but so what? The little boy was so gorgeous & did an amazing job, Hugh Jackman was born for this role (I am so happy Russell Crowe passed on it) & our country looked beautiful. Some scenes looked like an ad for the Northern Territory. I laughed & cried, I think I cried bc I was happy in some parts, sad in others, & just homesick in others!
I was thinking maybe the critics/American audiences would struggle with not knowing much about Aboriginal culture & how it relates to the movie? I know most of my friends here wouldn't understand a "walkabout", so maybe that is what the critics didn't get? BUT I have to say, not to be mean, the real problem with Nicole is that her face does not move. It was kind of annoying me in the film, seriously not much emotion can be shown on you face when it is frozen. Oy.

Bottoms up!

Because of "tough economic times" a strip club in London is offering for companies to advertise their products on the strippers butts while they dance. OK, WTF? Who is going to go out & buy laundry detergent bc they saw it on Candy Cane's behind while she was shaking her money maker?

Summer of '69 or Winter 2008?

I admit that I loved Bryan Adams...in 1985.  But a mother and son duo were stalking him this week in London. Seriously? Why on earth would you do that? I can see stalking Justin Timberlake or someone, but Bryan Adams? I guess it bc love "cuts like a knife"...
(I know, that was bad but I couldn't help it)

Brad-stache

Even Brad looks bad with a mustache. Movember is over, get rid of this asap! Eek!

Chris Issak is alive?

I get why Australia loves Pink, I love Pink too. For American's who don't know, Pink is HUGE in AUS, she sells out stadiums.  BUT I don't get why Chris Issak is popular down under. He has a cd out right now that it top ten on the AUS charts! The last time I saw him he was frolicking on a beach with black sand.
