Beyonce Can’t Catch a Break

Although young, beautiful and talented, it seems as if Beyonce simply cannot catch a break.  The singer gave birth to her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, last January.  But, before she gave birth, there was a rumor going around that she wasn’t really pregnant and that she had a surrogate carrying the baby after an Australian interview seemed to show her baby belly deflate upon sitting. Then, there was controversy over the fact that Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z reportedly dropped $1.3 million to reserve the entire floor of the Lenox Hospital where Blue Ivy was born.  Parents claimed that they … Continue reading

Randy Travis- Losing It

You know, a lot of country singers lived their lives like country songs. Hank Williams died in a car on the way to a gig in Virginia at the young age of 29. George Jones’ wife once took his car keys because he was drunk. However, she didn’t take the lawn mower keys and Jones drove it 8 miles to get his hooch. Some might say you write best about that which you know and if that’s true, country great Randy Travis must have a really big hit brewing up inside of him. Travis has been in the headlines a … Continue reading

Kris Allen and Adam Lambert’s Bromance

This week, “American Idol” runner up Adam Lambert shocked no one (except maybe a few tweens) when he announced in a Rolling Stone magazine interview that he was gay. Personally, I applaud Adam, Hollywood Life’s Young Hollywood Awards Artist of the Year, for not overshadowing the finale with his announcement and for also not waiting for years to announce the obvious, like former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken. Adam said he had not regrets about coming clean with his sexuality and was happy with the magazine cover and title (“The Liberation of Adam Lambert”). If you watched the finale of … Continue reading

Jamie Lynn Spears’ Baby Daddy in Car Wreck

Britney Spears’ almost-but-not-really brother-in-law has a cracked skull. At least that’s what one media source is reporting. Casey Aldridge, the father of Jamie Lynn Spears’ 10-month-old daughter Maddie, was reportedly injured in a car accident early Sunday morning. According to police reports, the 19-year-old was driving his Ford F-250 truck when he lost control around 1:30 this morning, and drove off the shoulder of a Louisiana highway. Police say Aldridge’s truck flipped over and he and his three passengers sustained injuries. There are conflicting reports on the severity of the teen father’s injuries. One report claims Aldridge suffered a “cracked … Continue reading

Playing the Blame Game: Jessica Simpson’s Parents and Grandmother of Octuplets

Jessica Simpson’s parents say they know who’s responsible for making their daughter “look” fat: Her stylist. According to reports, the singer’s parents are “extremely upset” about the vicious skewering their precious daughter has endured since unflattering shots taken of her at a recent concert surfaced. Jessica’s dad Joe has nothing but praise for the way his daughter has handled the fat jokes hurled in her direction. Conversely, he has nothing but ire for Jessica’s stylist. According to Joe Simpson, Jessica’s alleged “weight gain” has more to do with bad styling and poor photography than a purported relationship with Ronald McDonald. … Continue reading

Do You Think Jessica Simpson is Fat?

A slew of tabloids do and they are milking photos of the bigger blonde songstress for all they’re worth. And so it begins… another round of who’s fat in Hollywood. Jessica Simpson has been the talk of the World Wide Web since showing up to a concert gig wearing high-waisted jeans, a tank top, and the most hideous looking double-decker leopard print belt I’ve ever seen in my life. Forget about Simpson’s weight gain people… let’s talk about her choice in clothing! All week long the tabloids have been poking fun at the “porkier” version of the once rail-thin singer … Continue reading

Country Crooner Lending a Hand

Honestly, I probably would have skipped right over this next story had it not been for the fact that my 92-year-old stroke victim grandmother was placed in an assisted living facility last year. Touring senior care facilities trying to find just the right place for your loved ones gives you new respect for the whole nursing facility industry. It made me wonder if award-winning country singer Martina McBride ever had to find a facility to place one of her family members in. After all, it’s not everyday that a celebrity volunteers to assist aging members of the music industry by … Continue reading

New Duets from Elvis and Country Stars

Isn’t technology amazing? Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, has been dead for almost 31 years, yet we will be able to enjoy a “new” Elvis album soon. Just as we saw Celine Dion “sing” with Elvis a couple of years ago on “American Idol,” we will now be able to purchase a Christmas duets album featuring Elvis and some country music stars, including a few who weren’t even born before he died. The album, titled “Elvis Presley Christmas Duets,” will be released on October 14th. In his career, Elvis only recorded 20 different Christmas songs, yet he … Continue reading

Michael Buble: A Modern Day Sinatra?

Singing classic songs is really hot today. Rod Stewart, that little sex kitten from the 70s, has reinvented himself by covering the Great American Songbook Collection and has extended his musical career not only into a different direction, but also into its fifth decade. Even former balladeer Michael Bolton has realized there is new money in old songs, releasing his Bolton Swings Sinatra album in 2006. Sinatra was almost bigger than life – both in person and in the recording studio, so his act is hard to live up to. While Rod and Michael both do respectable jobs, there is … Continue reading

Celebrities Tightening Security

How much does it cost to erect a giant fence around your home or to live in a gated community? Given the amount of large fences surrounding the homes I live near I can’t imagine the price would bankrupt the average Hollywood celebrity, which is why I have a hard time comprehending how 80s pop star Debbie Gibson got herself in the following situation. According to news reports, the “Shake Your Love” singer recently filed a restraining order against an alleged stalker who showed up at her house on more than one occasion. Police say Spaniard Bassas Jorge Puigdollers has … Continue reading
