"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
So this weekend was full of surprises. Now let me be completely honest with you. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an entire episode of American Idol all the way through, and if I did, it was once or twice 5 years ago. I swear I’ve only seen a few segments of it over the course of its 11 seasons. So I was completely unaware of Lee DeWyze, and as it turns out, dude is an amazing musician. And I think RCA is continuing to not make the best choices with their best artists, as we’ve seen problems in promoting and marketing other great musicians on their roster, such as Christina Aguilera.
And when you take into consideration the overall American Idol winner’s success rate.. You’ve really only got Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson. Damn, that’s a .273 batting average.. not very impressive at all considering AI is supposed to be the premiere talent contest on television.
Lee DeWyze celebrated his 25th birthday at Millions of Milkshakes in the Westfield Culver City Shopping Center….
And I think the best birthday gift this dude can get, is for RCA to get off their ass and start pushing both of em better, cause they have 2 very strong talents that they’re not bustin their asses for… as they should !
Lee and Millions of Milkshakes will also be donating 50% of the proceeds from their shake will be donated to Feeding America between the dates of April 2nd to July 2nd, so check out that shake and know that half your loot is feedin a kid who needs it.
And for those of you who are fans of Lee, check out his live performance, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it… Especially the crazy midwestern middle aged stalker chicks who cried for him the most.
The Kid’s Choice Awards were this weekend, and celebrity siblings came out in full movaph**kin effizect. We’d have to say, these days it seems like families and siblings are killing the Hollywood game. In my opinion, the forefront of these siblings would have to be Jaden and Willow Smith. These two kids are too cool for school, and with parents like Will and Jada, they’re definitely gettin’ raised right and reppin for the industry. Jaden’s performance in the new “Karate Kid” was awesome, and Willow’s got a voice to school most of the full grown singers in the R&B realm. No wonder Jay-Z had to sign her.
But let’s not forget about the other folks that showed up on the carpet. Paris and Nicky Hilton, who seem to have been quite busy this week, who also made appearances at Snoop’s party, and the Red Cross Relief Run for Japan, these two power sisters are def reppin correct.
Then let’s take Kim and Kourtney Kardashians, who are so family oriented, they even had to bring their half sisters with a different last name, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Kris Jenner sure is doing an amazing job pimpin’ out her kids… they reportedly earned $65 Million dollars last year as a family. Wow!! Heidi Fleiss could learn a lot from this fam.
And Joe Jonas introduced us to the next Jonas in line, little Frankie. With all these families runnin game in the industry, it’s no doubt these siblings are gonna be runnin thangs for years to come.
Russian born supermodel Irina Shayk kicked off the Grand Opening of Tao Beach this year at the Venetian Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, wearing nothing other than… NOT A BIKINI !!! What the EFF !!!
Come on now, Irina Shayk has one of the hottest bikini bodies this world has ever laid eyes on. I’m talkin her bikini body was enough to pull her out of her remote Russian Village and make her a supermodel before the world, and she came to open Tao Beach wearing shorts and a top. Are you effing serious??? I bet you all those peeps at Tao Beach, both male and female, were itching to see Irina’s hottness, and were fully disappointed.
Let’s take a look at what they were missing…
Yeah, I’d be pissed too.
But maybe she decided to dress more conservatively cause her momma was in the crowd. Either way, if I was running Tao Beach, a frickin Vegas pool party, and I was payin Irina, I’d be like “Ya know, you gotta show up in a bikini… No? You wanna get paid? Bikini it is dammmnit!!” Or perhaps boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo said to her (in spanish) “I make enough millions, don’t show your body” and she said back to him in Russian “Whatever you say Cristiano”.
At least the party had more celebs to make sure it wasn’t a complete disappointment, like Jaime Foxx, the ever beautiful Sophia Bush, and world famous DJ Tiesto.
But all i gotta say is, if Tao Beach expects to compete with Hard Rock Casino’s infamous pool party “Rehab”.. your supermodel guests are finna have to show up in bikinis homey.
Snooze or lose !!

Charlie Sheen bombed the opening show of his “My Violent Torpedo Of Truth / Defeat Is Not An Option” Tour, at the Fox Theater in unruly Detroit. I would have to say this, everybody knows Detroit can be a tough crowd, so I’m actually even surprised that they considered making Detroit the opening city for a show that clearly lacked the proper preparation. But to me it is no surprise that this show was not well received. Reports state that Charlie seemed very unprepared and unfunny, and was eventually booed off stage.
What people fail to recognize is that Charlie Sheen’s brain is on the fritz and fried. I remember watching interviews with him 10 years ago and thinking to myself “This guy’s mind is not right. He’s done waaay too many drugs” and this was ten years ago. Think about how much damage he’s received to the cranium after an additional decade of decadence and drug induced debauchery. Even Snoop was afraid to show face on this one, and Snoop aint afraid of nuffin !
What people also fail to recognize is that when it comes to Hollywood, Film and Television… You’re really only as good as your scripts, which is written by writers who sit at a desk for hours a day, perfecting single lines, punch lines, and fluidity of dialogue. Guess what… Charlie Sheen hasn’t written a script in his entire life, so don’t be surprised that he was unable to produce the same comic prowess as his episodes of “Two and a Half Men”.
And we know Charlie isn’t surprised, as a matter of fact, he may have even anticipated the move, as the fine print on the back of each ticket let every purchaser beware that no refunds would be given. It seems to me like Charlie’s tour is a little more hype than hoopla. And there’s definitely hype about his sold out tour, as I’m being told by insiders it’s not sold out at all, and in fact many shows are struggling with hundreds of seats left to be filled. Fat chance of that happening after last nights debacle.
Well Charlie, all your years of drug use, woman abuse, Calipornication and arrogance in the Hollywood limelight has caught up to you. It looks like you should’ve listened to what your father had to say back in your “Wall Street” days…
“I don’t go to sleep with no whore and I don’t wake up with no whore… That’s how I live with myself”
Should’ve listened to your father Charlie.
daamnit if the entire West Coast didn’t come out for Snoop’s party to launch Blast from the makers of Colt 45 and Snoop’s new album “Doggumentary” which was released on MySpace earlier this week… Kurupt, Warren G, Too Short, DJ Quik and … wait, hold up !! Paris and Nicky Hilton?
Now if this were to have happened back in the day, Snoop might’ve risked losing some “street cred”… but lucky for him, not only is he a superstar in his own right, but Hip-Hop culture is completely intertwined now with Pop Culture. As a matter of fact, having Paris and Nicky at your Hip-Hop party probably adds to your street cred, cause it shows just how much your music crosses all boundaries.
And boy, was Colt 45 really trying their hardest to sell that “Blast”… They sure did the damn thang… They even brought out 101 Damenations lookin fine and crowdin up the entire sidewalk across Sunset Blvd. outside of Trousdale, where the event was being held.
Outside of the club, DJ Quik gave love to Nate Dogg’s families to the cameras… and in addition to that, it’s lookin like DJ Quik may just be down to work with the kid. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on that shizz.
Other celebrity guests included Ryan Cabrera, Megan Goode, Chris Evans, and Natasha Henstridge, as well as the always beautiful Ashlan Gorse from E!. You know that chick is tall as fu*k!!
And you know what, it def felt like an old school West Coast Gangsta Rap party since there was like 6 squad cars of sheriffs outside, just itchin and waitin for some whoridaz.
Luckily, there wasn’t one. Keep the peace ladies and gentlemen
btw, u know people have been wondering why Snoop would release his new album on MySpace. Execs were telling the company they need to turn it around or else… I guess this is their first step in heading back into our culture… and they must’ve paid Snoop some major loot $$$
Today’s Hollywood.TV Celebrity GPS includes our favorite Devil Rocker, Marilyn MANson holding hands with someone not so handsome.
This segment also includes David Beckham kickin some balls before walking off the field with his Soccerpop Guild and Will Smith making New York Scream.
Steve-O looks like he’s speaking rather coherently these days, even though newly single Joe Jonas is speaking not at all.
Now I don’t know if this may or may not come as a surprise to you, But Marilyn Manson, King of Satanic Rock, was seen leaving out of the grand opening of “Vivienne Westwood” in West Hollywood last night, with his own West Hollywood fixture, a man on his hand.
I guess he didn’t try to shake him off hard enough.
I don’t know what’s a creepier sight, these two in bed together as grown girly men writhing around naked and getting their make-up all over each other.. or the fact that his man looks straight out “The Cell” with Jennifer Lopez. Trust, dude would’ve fit in perfectly with that cast.
