Ashton Kutcher Minus Kabbaha Bracelet for New Movie

Ashton Kutcher is pretty in pink, however, not red anymore as missing is his bright red Kabbalah bracelet! I guess Kutcher is giving the producers of his new movie “Valentine’s Day” a break by voluntarily removing the eyesore.

In Kutcher’s movie “Guess Who” no one on the set bothered to tell him the red string was extremely loud, that is until the movie got in front of test audiences, who spoke loudly as to the Kabbalah distraction. Word is the producers were listening and had the rojo yarn digitally removed at a cost over $100 grand.

There’s always a chance that Ash is just not that in to it anymore, by “it” I mean the bracelet and the religion! Stick with the pink Ashton! It means something totally different.

Cher Vs. Roseanne

Ill kill you, Roseanne!

“I’ll kill you, Roseanne!”

Roseanne vs. Cher, the battle of the one-named celebrities!  The famous comedian has gotten under the skin of the singer by insulting Chaz Bono(originally Chastity Bono), Cher’s son who is in the process of becoming a man after forty years of being a woman.

Roseanne joked about the situation on her website, with videos depicting the life of Chaz and Cher in the vein of a silly 90’s sitcom.  The video’s opening theme song played to these lyrics: “One’s in sequins, the others in jeans/One hangs with dykes, the other with queens.”

Cher didn’t take too kindly to the videos and a spokesperson replied with a simple “That’s so not funny.”

Maybe Cher will challenge Roseanne to an epic battle in the streets of New York or something.  Or perhaps, being a songwriter, Cher can hit back with a little song of her own.  Whatever happens, just don’t stop ladies.  I love when celebrities duke it out over the internet.

Lil Wayne Says Stay in School

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne

I like Lil Wayne.  He’s a strong performer, a good writer and is, unlike many, shorter than myself.  Now the self-professed “greatest rapper alive” has a message for the kids.  The musician and Grammy nominee has recorded a PSA urging children to stay in school and focus on education.  Right on.  You can watch the video here.

I think it’s a good message to send to the youth.  I mean, we can’t all be Lil Wayne.  We can’t all just focus on rapping and become millionaires.  We can’tall date models and get nominated for a bunch of Grammys.

No, we can’t.  But we can try.

Listen to Lil Wayne, kids.  Stay in school.

Well if you’ve ever dreamt about having Twilight’s Robert Pattinsonin your bathroom, now you can! Check out this fly accessory for your shower! The following is only a few of over 1500 Pattinson related products selling on eBay’s online auction website.

dsp pa221236 For Sale on eBay: Robert Pattinsons Snot

Among other items for sale are a bottle cap necklace emblazoned with Pattinson’s soda pop mug and a thoroughly used tissue, you heard right, a snotty Kleenex apparently chalk full of mucus compliments of the Twilight movie star.

The seller notes, “Hey All You Twilight and Robert Pattinson Fans Ladies out there do you loooove Robert Pattinson? Do you want him? Well I Cant Give you Robert Pattinson but i can sell you a tissue he used a couple days ago! Want Some Of Your Own Pattinson? Well nows your chance! My Brother In-Law Is Currently Working on the Eclipse Set in Vancouver and he managed to snag me some tissues Mr. Pattinson happened to use while on set, i guess he’s gotten a little cold :( So Ladies nows your chance to own a wonderful item of your man ! Bid Now! Its Worth it.”

Now at the time this story was published, there were no bids for the used tissue. The seller has the starting bid for the pampered paper product at a paltry $3.00. The authenticity is also in serious question with eBay showing the item location as Haiku, Hawaii. This guy wants us to believe his brother sent him a Kleenex from Vancouver Canada all the way to Hawaii? I think this dude’s brother-in-law is playing a joke on him, matter of fact, I don’t think that’s snot.

Megan Fox is NOT Catwoman

Can we just discuss this and get it over with?  Rumors are running rampant right now claiming that Megan Fox has been signed and cast as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film.  This is a lot of bull.

Firstly, Nolan isn’t even signed to direct a third Batman film yet.  Sure, he probably will but nothing has been inked at this time.  That means that a script hasn’t even been started.  There’s no story, therefore there is no Catwoman.  Therefore…well, you get it.   Also, Megan Fox is a bit too young for Christian Bale.  Being a massive Batman fan (seriously, it’s kind of sad), I can tell you that Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, has to be the approximate age of Bruce Wayne, hence their bizarre on-again/off-again relationship.

Rumors about the third Batman film have been spreading like the plague this year.  Remember when Shia LaBeouf was supposedly signed on to play Robin?  Or how about when Eddie Murphy was cast as The Riddler?  These rumors are just that and there’s nothing to them.  They generate traffic to websites and it’s always fun to fantasy-cast but it’s kind of silly at this point.  We’ve still got some time before any official announcement about the third Bat-film is made.  At that time, let the speculation begin.  For the time being, don’t trust any of it.

UPDATED! Fall Out Boy Singer Arrested

Patrick Stump, lead singer of the band Fall Out Boy, was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday night for driving without a license.

Authorities say the singer was driving in a popular part of Hollywood.  He was pulled over, arrested, and sent to jail.  That’s pretty harsh to be driving without a license, isn’t it?  Anyway, he was later released on $15,000 bail.

Stump’s reps haven’t released any statement since the arrest.  If anything, this will help Stump’s career because he makes him a rebellious rocker.  It’ll give Fall Out Boy a little more edge.  And, trust me, if there’s one thing Fall Out Boy needs, it’s edge.

UPDATE: Stump spoke with News. His words: “All I really have to say is ignorance of the law isn’t innocence.  I didn’t want to give up my Illinois driver’s license and was unaware that was a crime. It is, by the way, in the state of California. Lesson learned. I technically broke a law, so technically I deserve whatever I get. But man, is my mom gonna be pissed.”

Fear the wrath of Mama Stump!

Fact or Fiction? Did Michael Jackson Fake His Death? Evidence for You to Decide

** Disclaimer! I do not know if Michael Jackson faked his death. Just like you, I am wondering if it was possible after seeing this video of “Michael Jumping Out of Coroner’s Van!” I am a huge Michael Jackson fan, so I would never disrespect. This evidence is for you to figure out if it is real or there is more to the Michael Jackson death than we know. **

This new video that Count just posted of a ‘possible sighting’ of Michael Jackson jumping out of a coroner’s van after his so-called death, has blown my mind. This video, and the possibility of Michael Jackson faking his death, led me to so many questions. Was Propofol used to fake his death? Did Michael play “Romeo”?

First, you can tell this video is real. It does not look in any way ‘fake’. This video is supposed to be from the day of Michael’s death. Just before this moment, Michael was just helicoptered in onto USC grounds, then driven in the coroner’s van to the actual coroner’s building.

Let’s rewind the entire day of Michael’s death of June 25, 2009…

Michael was pronounced ‘dead’ 5 hours after his actual death in his Holmby Hills home. Dr. Conrad Murray, his personal doctor, was reported to have called in Michael’s death 5 hours after he Michael actually quit breathing. During that time, Dr. Conrad had his Las Vegas doctor’s office cleaned out.

Paramedics then came to Michael’s house and tried to resuscitate him, but he was already dead they said. “Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest.” (Who was the UCLA cardiologist? Who were the ‘paramedics’ that arrived at Jackson’s home?)

Once at the UCLA hospital, the staff tried to “resuscitate” him but he was completely unresponsive. So, Michael died hours before the time he was at UCLA hospital. (Who was involved? How many paramedics were around? Did anyone notice any weird behavior at the hospital when Michael arrived? Was the area blocked off? Restricted? Only Michael could get away with everyone participating in keeping distance from the hot scene.)

Michael was then transported in a helicopter from UCLA, to USC in downtown Los Angeles. From the exit of Michael covered in a white sheet, he was rolled out on a gurney, then put into the coroner’s van, the van then drove to the actual L.A. coroner’s building on USC grounds.

I found this video below that shows the coroner’s van driving up to the building, just before it pulls inside of the gated garage. Watch at the last 20 seconds of this video and you can see a group of people (probably paparazzi) run up the ramp and attempt to follow the van to the garage. The video cuts there.

This local news video was filmed just before the unknown camera man (maybe from the group of people chasing the van?) recorded secret footage of Michael’s coroner van driving into the gated garage. [Now watch the first video at the top again to see the correlation] The coroner van gets through the gated garage and stops. You then see a big dark skinned man dressed in black, opens the back door of the van, and a person who resembles Michael Jackson, jumps out the back of the van, and the bodyguard and the possible still living Michael Jackson walk into the building. If you listen closely, you can hear the camera man breathing hard in the video as if he just got done chasing the van with the group of people up to the gated garage. Watch closely at the end of this video, you can barely see the group of people chasing the coroner van.

My point in correlating these two different videos, is to show you that this camera man who got secret footage of a possible ‘alive’ Michael jumping out of the van, just might be on to something big. Looks like evidence to me.

If Michael Jackson did fake his death, he would be the only person who could pull it off in every way. There have been stories of other big stars throughout history that possibly faked their death. Jim Morrison from “The Doors” is rumored to be alive still. Some say he faked his death, and is hiding out because he didn’t want the fame anymore.

Is it possible that Michael wanted to bail out on his “This Is It” tour? Was faking his death a way to get away from everyone and everything? Is there a chance he was unsure about doing his big comeback? Is a ‘fake death’ a better way to get away from it all, rather than living and dealing with everything? Did Jackson’s fake death rake in enough money and satisfy everyone that Jackson owed?

Were there certain people in on his “fake death?” Who did Michael trust enough to tell? Have you seen any reports that ANY of his family members ever saw Michael’s body after his death? Would he tell his mother Katherine? Would he tell Janet?

If we found out that Michael was still alive, would you be mad at him for faking his death? I thought about it, and I first thought “maybe” I would be mad. We had to go through so much pain and suffering, and then saying ‘okay’, we’ve accepted he’s gone. After the Los Angeles memorial, the months of tears and news, the Jackson family sorrow, the blaming of Dr. Conrad Murray possibly killing Michael…Did Dr. Conrad Murray give Michael a “Romeo and Juliet” anesthetic (Propofol) to fake out everyone into thinking he’s dead? Could it be?  It’s been a long ride, and we are still rolling through it.

So would I be mad if Michael faked his death? No. He gave us so much joy throughout our lives, I would be ‘okay’ if Michael were really alive and free, doesn’t he deserve it? “Leave Me Alone oh oh…”

“The View” Has Some Impressive Guest Hosts

The View, that wonderfully popular gabfest that seems to constantly generate headlines, is doing it again.  This time, the news is about the upcoming guest hosts.  Victoria Beckham, Meghan McCain, LaToya Jackson and Kathy Griffin are all scheduled to sit in on the ABC show during the month of September.  Victoria Beckham, really?  I must say that that’s a pretty big catch for The View.  She’s not very inclined to do anything!  And she always looks dour so it’ll be exciting to see her chat it up with the ladies.

Meghan McCain (who will surely talk politics) is up first, then the rest of the girls get their shots.  I don’t really watch The View (I’m more of a Maury guy when it comes to morning TV) but I’m expecting some pretty good headlines from these guest hosts.  Maybe some bickering, maybe some talk about the late Michael Jackson?  Anything’s possible on The View!
