Awwwwwww! Britney Spears Says "Hello" To Adele
With Adele fever catching fire all over the world, why shouldn't Britney Spears get in on the action?

Hey why not? All the popular people are jumping on the Adele wagon. Both the single, Hello, and the album, 25, have broken records. More than 3.38 million copies of 25 were sold in its first week in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, marking the largest single sales week for an album since the company began tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991, Billboard reported.

Yowza! 

Britney posted a video on her Instagram page getting her pirouette on to Hello.

Saying: "I could dance to this song a MILLION times...love you @adele!"

Chrissy Teigen "But It Is, You Idiot"

Chrissy Teigen
Pregnant & Planned Parenthood Supporter 
Props to one Ms. Chrissy Teigen, who by the way is pregnant with her first child by husband John Legend in her support of Planned Parenthood and not backing off from the haters.

Wake up people! Planned Parenthood is about women's health issues, while "yes" they do perform abortions but that is merely a small part of what happens there percentage wise. Oh, and PS, sometimes abortions are performed for the Mother's health and survival FYI.

Also since when is a woman's uterus property of the U.S. Government?

Her is a transcript via E!Online of her Twitter conversation with people who called her out:

"Every time s--t like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood," she wrote.

She drew many negative and sarcastic responses and got into heated arguments, which carried over into Saturday morning.

"Maybe you should make a donation to the Colorado Springs Police Department," one person wrote.

"it might seem insane, but it's possible to support two things at once. I suggest you do the same," Teigen replied.

"Happy to see you support. Just wanted to make sure you remembered people lost their lives today," another person added.

"I don't need you to check where my feelings and mind are," Teigen responded. "I'm an adult. I'm good. Thank you." 

Then there was some name-calling.

"@chrissyteigen remember how this wasn't about PP? But no need to correct yourself with facts, that doesn't fit your agenda," another user wrote.

"But it is, you idiot," she replied. 

And there was some more naughty language.

"It would be wonderful if you could promote this as quickly as you promoted donating to PP," a user wrote, linking to a crowdfunding page raising money for the family of the police officer who was killed in the shooting.

"Oh f--k off," Teigen said. "Nothing is ever enough for you, is it? How about you donate?"
The unfollows followed.

"Extremely fine with any unfollows," she tweeted. "Would prefer it over your ignorant rants but I'm prepared either way. Nothing I haven't seen before."

And when it got really petty, husband John Legend got involved.

"I am a published author who typed in a hurry. Focus less on gramerical errors and more on @PPFA killing kids," one person wrote, addressing Teigen and another user.

"Gramerical," Teigen joked.

"@chrissyteigen That's an American grammatical error, which means it's actually correct no matter what," Legend replied.

It's Time To Get Frigid With Amy Schumer!

"Hello" No, This Isn't Adele, It's Amy Schumer 
While one definitely never ever in a million years associate the word frigid with Amy Schumer you might think twice while viewing the photo of her all bundled up and chatting on her cell phone while walking in Central Park in New York City.

Hmmmmmmmmmm.....wonder what type of conversation she is engaging in? Based on the expression on her face I am willing to bet she is making time for a friend. Why? Because her smile is casual and warm.

All I have to say is this image makes me glad I live in the much more mild and warmer climate of Los Angeles, CA.

That being said, I love myself some Amy Schumer! Yeah, that's correct, want to rumble about it?

Enjoy your Fucking Saturday!

Thanksgiving Bromance

I Feels For You
Adam Levine & Blake Shelton

Adam Levine has taken his Bromance with Blake Shelton to a whole other level by calling him the "sexiest man alive." 

People Magazine doesn't have a clue as to how hot Blake is according to Adam or they would put him on the cover of said issue (Adam himself is a former holder of the coveted title.)

The Voice coaches clearly have the feels for each other. Check out the photo above for proof.

Since today is Thanksgiving and all that jazz one of the themes of the Holiday is brotherly love. 

Nothing quite says that like a Blake & Adam sandwich. Watch out Gwen Stefani you have competition!!!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Grease Live!

l-r Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit & Vanessa Hudgens
Good Luck Guys!


There's a drought in Hollywood, of original ideas. I bet you thought I was going to mention the water supply, didn't you? 


Well luckily when it comes to great Hollywood musicals getting the old re-do treatment the concept is original, they are doing them live! The giant ratings for The Sound of Music Live solidified there would be more live TV musicals to come.

Up this January Grease gets a whirl on the live wire. The movie is considered a classic and starred John Travolta as Danny and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy. Their chemistry was electrifying! 

To me the challenge of this undertaking, other than performing it live, is not trying to replicate the original, nobody could. Rather the challenge is trying to create something new that resonates with the audiences on some different level. Most of that will fall on how much chemistry Julianne Hough and Aaron Tveit - the new Sandy and Danny's shoulders. While they could never copy Travolta and Newton-John's sizzle, they need to have their own spark to really make this production Greased Lightning!

I am looking forward to seeing High School Musical alumni Vanessa Hudgens essay the role of Rizzo made famous by Stockard Channing. Having won rave reviews on Broadway for the title role of Gigi for sure she will make Rizzo her own.

Tell me more, tell me more...

Last night friend and awesome performer E.G. Daily took to the stage for a one night only (but we all hope she does more) special show at the legendary Whisky A Go Go. On the famed stretch of road where she started it all the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, CA

E.G. rocked da house! It was great to see her back where she belongs on stage performing music! The audience licked it up as she served up helpings of her 80's hits Say It, Say It and a rock arrangement of Mind Over Matter. Covered Donna Summer's Sunset People and sang one of my personal faves Here It Goes Again plus many more! Also Tommy Pickles made a surprise appearance.

Miley Cyrus Is "Lighter" Than A Feather

You "Lighter" Up My Life
Photo: Terry Richardson
Lighter than a feather, you are Lighter than a feather...

Remember that freaky ass game when you were a kid? Or, perhaps not.

Following her free, very extended album Dead Petz that dropped after her fun/loose/funky hosting of the MTV Video Music Awards. Miley is back with a intriguing video for the song from it, Lighter.

Yes, like a wrecking ball our Lady Of Cyrus is back to doing what she does best singing topless in neon.

Dead Petz was quite experimental and I really felt it showed a lot of interesting facets to Ms. Cyrus. Lighter is one of the standouts. Remember when you look at her with a strap on, most likely you have used one too!

Her upcoming tour looks amaze balls! Honestly, aside from one Ms. Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus is currently one of the best contemporary all around artists out there.

Hey, Party In The USA, bitches!!!

Blaze Of Glory - Oliver Hudson

I Wanna Be Elated!
Oliver Hudson
R.I.P. Jeff Fordham - for those of you not in the loop, Jeff is the resident sleazy music industry dude on Nashville

When last seen Jeff was attempting to help his client, Juliet Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) from plunging herself off the top of a building to her death. Well nothing says Oooooops! Like an unexpected slip which results in a twist of fate. That's right, Savior Jeff Fordham fell down and went boom instead of his superstar client. Fuck! Don't you hate when that happens?!

Jeff was portrayed by Goldie Hawn's devilishly handsome son, Oliver Hudson. Don't cry for Oliver Argentina, he was actually more than OK with the demise of the oily one. When asked how he felt this is what he said:

“Elation, honestly!” Don't hold back, Hudson “Only for the reason that I knew that I had only four episodes left on "Nashville" because of "Scream Queens." So I wanted to go out in a blaze of glory, so to speak. I got my wish." 

How Sid Vicious & Nancy Spungen of you!

Apparently sister Kate Hudson was so traumatized by seeing her brothers fall to his death, she cried.

Here's a tissue, wipe your nose, dear.

Go Commando!


Turned Towards The Sun
The astonishing true life story of British Commando Michael Burn M.C.

To be released on DVD and digital formats on December 15th
"An extraordinary 20th-century life recalled in age" - The Arts Desk
"A fascinating watch for any lover of film and documentary" (5 stars) - The Upcoming
Poetry in motion.

Turned Towards The Sun, a documentary about the extraordinary life of British writer and poet Michael 'Micky' Burn MC, is to be released on December 15th through MVD Entertainment Group.  

Had Micky's life story been written as a novel, readers would readily accept it as invented. Born in Mayfair in 1912, his father worked for the Royal family. He became the lover of the communist spy Guy Burgess, and would initially be taken in by Nazism, expressing an admiration for Hitler. In 1942, he took part in a daring commando assault on the fortified French port of St Nazaire, where he was captured, and he ended the war a POW in Colditz. He would latterly become a committed Marxist and be credited with saving the life of Audrey Hepburn.

American director Greg Olliver, who has previously documented the life of rock star Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, and blues legend Johnny Winter, started making this film in 2008, revisiting significant events and places in Burn's life. Burn is presented here as a candid and witty raconteur, with a sharp mind and vivid recollections. He died in 2010, which leaves Turned Towards the Sun as a fitting eulogy to a remarkable figure.

"This film is about having one last chance to look back on a long, fulfilling life and Micky Burn has a story like no other", says Olliver.  "I met him through a chance encounter and was soon taken by the charm, intelligence and humour vividly on display in his storytelling and the resilience and compassion of his spirit evident in his tales. He was an old man living life quietly on the coast of Wales, but one with a personal history that wove and wound itself around the defining moments of the twentieth century. With surprising candor and zeal, he opened himself to the camera and its imagined audience; allowing us, now, a glimpse of his life remembered from what would become its twilight. Turned Towards the Sun is a portrait of an extraordinary man who lived through extraordinary times. In his story, we see our history and ourselves."

Turned Towards The Sun had its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival in 2012 where it was nominated for The Grierson - Best Documentary Award.

Dolly Parton: Guess How Many Colors My Coat Is?



SNEAK PEEK OF "DOLLY PARTON'S COAT OF MANY COLORS" REVEALS HEART-RENDING STORY BEHIND ICON'S CHILDHOOD

"Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" Airs December 10 at 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. ET on NBC

Tis' the season for Dolly Parton, you have a new coat  and you have a new coat, you all have new coats!


There won't be a dry eye around the television when "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" airs December 10 on NBC. Parton and NBC released a three-minute preview of the upcoming TV-movie based on the Country Music Hall of Famer's 1971 hit "Coat of Many Colors."
 


“My favorite song that I’ve ever written tells a true story from my childhood about a little coat that my mama made for me,” Parton said while introducing the clip. Parton’s mother initially sewed the the jacket as a blanket for her unborn baby, but she reworked the piece for her youngest daughter.

The upcoming primetime special, which showcases Jennifer Nettles in the role of Parton's mother, Avie, was inspired by a series of events Parton endured when she was 9 years old growing up in East Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.

The family-oriented, faith-based movie profiles the loss of Parton’s unborn sibling, the family struggles to keep it together while grieving and the bullying the 9-year-old endured when other children criticized the quilted coated.

As one of the executive producers, Parton herself was very hands on in the making of the film – especially when it came to casting her family members.

"She told me, 'I loved your little eyes," says Lind of auditioning in front of Parton.

Jennifer Nettles plays Parton's mom, Avie Lee Parton, and Ricky Schroder plays her dad, Robert Lee Parton.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” is the first in a series of television movies developed by Parton that are expected to be released through 2016.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” airs Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

It's Rapist Season With Margaret Cho

Getting Jizzy With It!
l-r: Rhonda Bernstein, Margaret & Me
Photo: Ken Phillips
Did the caption above sound somewhat irreverent? Well good! I caught all around awesome person and spirit animal Margaret Cho this past weekend, November 14th at The Wiltern to be exact, on her psyCHO tour. Refer to the photo above of me and my fellow Sagittarius engaging. 

One of Margaret's hot topics in her show is rape & sexual abuse. She has been a victim of it and is speaking out, loud, and irreverent, of course.

If you have been the victim of any sexual violation, it can affect you in ways you never expected. Sometimes it isn't so much the act as it is the reaction to it from others in your life that can alter your being. 

Moran, Margaret's Korean name, recently tackled this with a new song and video: I Want To Kill My Rapist.

Now this is not a literal thing, it's about killing the rapist, or sexual violator inside of you. 

Yes, the "killing" part is a metaphor...or is it? Check out the video after the jump!

Taylor Hicks Is An Infinite Hero

Taylor Hicks is ALWAYS on the move, check it!


Taylor Hicks, one of America’s most beloved musical artists, is wrapping up 2015 on a high note with several performances that are reminding fans across the world of his deep and varied musical talent.

On November 11, the singer took part in a special Veterans Day event held in Foothill Ranch, CA. Hicks performed the National Anthem and an intimate acoustic performance of his song "Nineteen" for Infinite Hero Foundation’s Racing to Reimagine Recovery Race. In addition to sharing his musical gifts, Hicks also took part in various events which included a motorcycle tribute ride, hosted by John Paul DeJoria’s Peace*Love*Happiness Charity co-founder Gary Spellman, Medal of Honor recipient and former Army Sgt. Kyle Jerome White and former Navy SEAL Jason "Jay" Redman, and aRacing to Reimagine gala event. Infinite Hero Foundation combats the most difficult front line issues – mental and physical – facing military heroes and their families.

Just a few days prior, Hicks brought his music to the Grand-Reopening of Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The singer wowed the crowd with his blue-eyed soul stylings by joining forces with cover band Liquid Blue. The collaboration took place to celebrate the rebuilding of the hotel, which had been tragically demolished by a hurricane. The Hilton resort underwent a multimillion-dollar fixup after being extensively damaged by Hurricane Odile in September 2014. The musical chemistry between Hicks and Liquid Blue was so tight and harmonious that the staff and management at the Hilton are making plans to have them return soon.

The next few weeks are going to be exciting ones for Hicks’ fans. While Taylor puts the finishing touches on his new album to be released in early 2016, two of his albums – 1997’s In Your Time and 2005’s Under The Radar will be released November 19th in their limited editions digitally for the first time. In Your Time features a brand new recording of "Somehow,” while the latter album will give fans the opportunity to hear an unreleased track, “No Place I’d Rather Be.”

Hicks is in the midst of an extensive tour including holiday-themed stops in California for the Hollywood Christmas Parade on November 29, as well as the annual lighting of the official State of Alabama Christmas Tree in Montgomery on December 4. He will then lend skiing talents to the Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest  (#DVSKIFEST) live on the CBS Television Network on December 13. He will pick back up his touring schedule January 16 in Bartlett, TN, and is in the midst of adding dates to his 2016 itinerary.

Art, It's Always In Season

Sarah Horwitz
Rimon (Pomegranate)
34” x 24” • oil on wood • 2015
Contemporary Los Angeles Painter Sarah Horwitz
Featured in
7,567mi, Los Angeles to Jerusalem
Part of the 2nd Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art
At Platt and Borstein Galleries
In Bel Air, CA
Through Sunday, December 20, 2015

Happy Monday, time to get yourself some culture!

Contemporary Los Angeles painter Sarah Horwitz is featured in 7,567mi, Los Angeles to Jerusalem, part of the international 2nd Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art. Horwitz’s work is on display through Sunday, December 20, 2015 at Platt and Borstein Galleriesin Bel Air, CA, one of three venues in LA that make up the 7,567mi exhibit, which is presented by the Jewish Artists Initiative (JAI) of Southern California. As part of Jerusalem Biennale 2015, the 7,567mi exhibition examines the Jewish connection between Los Angeles and Israel from diverse vantage points by posing the question: “What does it mean to be Jewish in Los Angeles in the 21st century?” This year, the international Biennale is hosting exhibitions in Jerusa lem, New York, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, and Los Angeles. Platt and Borstein Galleries, located at American Jewish University (15600 Mulholland Drive, Bel Air, CA 90077; 310-476-9777 ext. 201), across from the Skirball Cultural Center, is open Sundays though Thursdays from 10:00am to 4:00pm and on Fridays from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Free parking is available. For additional information, please visit the artist's site at http://www.sdhorwitz.com.

Sarah Horwitz’s work explores universal themes of matter and spirit related to compelling social, political, and environmental challenges within the world today. Her lush oil on wood paintings depict earth, air, fire, and water as liminal sites of perception. Abstraction combined with representation creates an impossible place between physical and spiritual planes, navigating between dream and consciousness, physicality, and spirituality.

Horwitz’s paintings present a dichotomy between optimism and danger – within the individual and society as a whole. “Rimon” (Pomegranate) simultaneously portrays violence and unrest while embracing hope, as the seeds of redemption are spread throughout the world. Exploding in mid-air like a grenade against turbulent water and sky is a blood red pomegranate, which can be sweet or sour and is widely cultivated in the Middle East for its nutritional and healing properties. Across many cultures, the pomegranate symbolizes fertility and prosperity. The fruit is also said to have 613 seeds corresponding to the 613 mitzvot (or commandments) of the Torah. These commandments are known in the Jewish faith as the tools for ushering in the era of enduring world peace.
While rooted in Jewish mysticism, Horwitz’s art is open to a multiplicity of meaning, offering viewers the autonomy to explore and interpret the works within their own belief systems and frames of reference.

Her art exists in the margins between binaries – where struggle and peace coexist, where destruction, creation, and transformation are all possible. Ultimately, Horwitz’s work is hopeful, offering up the potential for transcendent moments as an inspiration for embracing the challenges of the human condition.

Sarah Horwitz –
Sarah Horwitz* is a contemporary painter who has exhibited her work locally and nationally. Solo shows include Perimeter Gallery in Chicago, the Chicago Cultural Center (sponsored by a grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs), and Gramercy Fine Art in New York. Her work has also been repeatedly included in the International Art Expo in Chicago, where she lived before moving to Los Angeles. Horwitz’s works are in the collection of Fidelity Investments in Boston as well as in private collections in the US and Europe. Where Chicago MagazineChicago Sun Times, and New Art Examiner have written about her work. Horwitz taught as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the BFA program at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago for ten years. She received a BS in film from Boston University and an MFA in painting and drawing from The University of Iowa. She was raised in Northern New Jersey, where she first experienced profound transcendent moments in nature. Horwitz currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
