I give it TEN!!

In honour of Bruno Tonioli, one of the two best judges on Strictly Come Dancing (which starts again this Saturday, 6th October, BBC1, 6.15pm – tune in!!) here’s Elton John’s 1983 hit I’m Still Standing. Bruno is one of the backing dancers in the video!


Take Who? Take Me? Take What? That That?

Take That

Not content with breaking teenage boys’ hearts in the 80s (probably, I was neither a teenager nor a boy in the 80s) Michelle Pfeiffer yesterday chose to attack British supergroup…erm…group…Take That. Upon being asked if she was a fan, she replied:

Sorry, who? I have never heard of that band before?

And they’ve even performed a song in your new movie, Stardust! Little Mark will be crushed, I’m sure. (Well he is quite little, it wouldn’t take much to crush him, huh?)

You guys are mean!

I log into my stats today, and what do I find as one of the search terms for people coming to this blog? This:  

Losers on Dancing with the Stars 2007

That’s cold! COLD! Look, I know they don’t always get the biggest star names, and sometimes some of their dancing is rather average, but you really don’t have to call them losers. I’m sure they’re trying their best!

Spice Girls Announce Two More Dates in London

 Spice Girls in the 90s

Well, okay…so I don’t really see the attraction of going to a Spice Girls concert, but apparently thousands do. Two more London dates have been added to their tour – on 15th & 16th January, bringing the total of dates in the capital to fourteen! The concerts at the O2 will be spread over December and January.

I suppose well done to them? Or maybe Victoria just fancies living in English pad for a bit, so has begged everyone else in the band to extend the London residency. And then went back to say “no honestly, David, we’ll need to be there for at least four months – they love us over there! Oh wait, my Blackberry’s just told me we’ll be doing five months, FIVE MONTHS of concerts. Look, why don’t you just give up football, eh love?”

Tickets go on sale this Saturday, 6th October, from 10am, and can be bought from Ticketmaster.

P.S. Ahh, looking at the above photo really takes me back…to a much more innocent time, when life was all about peace signs and Union Jacks…and Geri dressed as a transvestite…

Sex and the City Film Update

Sex and the City 

Today’s Daily Mail has lots of new photos from the set of the Sex and the City film, currently being shot in New York. SPOILER! DO NOT click on the link if a) you don’t want to know a possible plotline (although rumours also suggest this is a fake storyline being “filmed” due to leaked scripts), and b) you have a phobia of truly hideous dresses. For they truly are. And I thought they were supposed to be stylish ladies.

Kate Moss Banned

Kate Moss in ad

Oh, okay. She’s not been banned from anything. In fact, it’s just print and TV adverts in which she features that have been banned. Adverts for Rimmel’s Magnifeyes mascara show her having impossibly long eyelashes, and two viewers complained that they did not believe her eyelashes were real, or that the mascara could produce such results. The ad agency behind the campaign denied that false eyelashes had been used, but did say they were enhanced after the photoshoot.

First off, TWO people complained and this gets banned? And who complains about mascara ads? I’m pretty sure most of them are doctored in some way. Hey, loads of ads are! In fact, I saw a cat food ad the other day where a tin was opened, the cat came running, and then wolfed down the whole thing. And that NEVER happens in real life! 

But then I also noticed it was a cartoon.

Oh, Felix!

It’s Monday – Video Time!

To celebrate the start of a new week (groan…), how about a classic music video? What better than Stefan Dennis’s Don’t It Make You Feel Good? It does Stefan, it really does.


P.S. Doesn’t his singing sound like he thinks he’s in Phantom of the Opera, or something? A teeny bit theatrical!

Big News – Pamela Anderson to Wed Again!

Pamela Anderson 

Okay, no, this really isn’t that big news at all…well, unless you’re a really, REALLY big fan of Baywatch and its alumni, or like crazy celebrity weddings. But Pamela Anderson is apparently thinking it’ll be third time lucky, as she and Rick Salomon (Paris Hilton’s co-star in, ahem, THAT video) have applied for a wedding license in Las Vegas.

Incidentally, it’ll also be a third marriage for him – Salomon has previously been married to Elizabeth Daily (voice of Babe the pig in the sequel, and of Tommy in Rugrats) and 90210-superbitch Shannen Doherty.

Wow, everything about this union screams class…

But what puzzles me is why this item is apparently a top entertainment news story on the BBC News website?! Should we expect to see this on TV news as well? I remember a few years back Oasis cancelled their tour of the US and flew back home, and that was one of the top news stories! Pah, grumpy Mancunians should not be top news.

Oh, and the BBC obviously don’t like Pamela Anderson – check out the photo they used of her. I know she’s getting er, older, but they can do better than that!

Update: Okay, having just searched through Google Images for Pamela Anderson pics, I now completely see the BBC’s problem. Cor, trying to find a “tasteful” pic amongst that lot was like trying to go through a minefield!

Really? Are You Sure?

Spice Girls 

Tickets for the Spice Girls concert in London, on 15th December, have sold out in 38 seconds this morning. Apparently, over 1 million people pre-registered for the tickets and new London dates have already been added to the bill. I simply don’t understand! Who are all these fans?!

In other Spice news (in case there are actually some fans out there), rock-god Bono is set to write a track for the girls, which will appear on their greatest hits album, due to be released before their tour commences.

Get Yourself Out Of This One, Jack Bauer

Hero of 24, Kiefer Sutherland, faces some time in the slammer after being arrested this week for drink-driving. This is his second arrest for this offence in the past few years, and is still under probation from his previous arrest in 2004. He could spend somewhere between a minimum of four days and and a maximum of six months in jail.

Hmmm, really not big or clever. But why oh why oh why do these stars insist on driving themselves round after a night out? Can’t they afford to get a taxi?! Better still, they could just hire a all-year round driver to haul their asses all over Hollywood!
