Demi Lovato continued her tour Wednesday night at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Let me just tell you, I went to see Demi a couple weeks back and the girl has some major pipes! These Lovatics had no idea what surprise was coming their way until Demi broke the news — and they broke out into screams.
The surprise guest was Nick Jonas! After exchanging hugs, Demi told the fans in the crowd, “Nick is one of my greatest friends I’ve ever had, so I just wanted to bring him out on stage to show you, even though you already know how talented he is.” The two worked along side each other in “Camp Rock,” later followed by a tour with the Jonas Brothers. It was a touching moment when they performed ”Catch Me” and “Don’t Forget,” which was a song they wrote together. ZOMG I love going down memory lane.
After the show, Nick tweeted:
No surprises here, Charlie Sheen spent Friday absolutely hammered. The Warlock was wasted at the Guns N’ Roses concert in L.A. and made several drug references to the paparazzi who were following him around. When someone asked what his favourite song was , he answered “Mr. Brownstone,” which just happens to be slang for heroin. “Imagine that!” he said raising his eyebrows.
As he was driving away someone yelled “I party like Charlie Sheen!” He replied: “And you’re still alive?” That is the question… Everyone is flipping out over the video, but he was at a Guns N’ Roses concert after all. [TMZ]
If you’re looking for another heartthrob-worthy performance from Ryan Gosling, you won’t be getting much of that in Drive.
But nevertheless, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off him.
In Drive, Gosling is mysterious and riveting and the only name available for his character is Driver.
A Hollywood stunt driver and mechanic by day, Driver serves as a wheelman for night time heists.
In early scenes of the movie, he’s helped by his boss and mentor Shannon (played by Malcolm in the Middle’s Bryan Cranston) who gives him a Chevy Impala to drive his clientele around to do their dirty deeds.
All goes well until he gets involved with his neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her young son Benicio. When her husband Standard (Oscar Isaac) is released from prison, Irene and Benicio’s safety is at risk.
Gosling’s ‘Driver’ tries to save the situation by helping Standard steal money from a pawn shop. But when the heist goes awry, it’s up to ‘Driver’ to take things in his own hands.
Fresh from Nicolas Winding Refn’s Best Director win at the Cannes Film Festival, Drive is an excellent action-drama thriller packed with violence and exciting car chases. Much like the style of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Pulp Fiction, the film is filled with blood and gore. Though the movie lacks dialogue, Refn somehow makes it work through the film’s characters’ actions and expressions.
While Gosling is supported by a talented cast that includes the likes of Christina Hendricks, Albert Brooks, Mulligan and Cranston, he holds his own playing the violent and badass Driver. And while there isn’t much that can be learned about the Driver, you’ll somehow still be swooning over him as he tries to save the day in order to protect the girl he’s fallen for.
Drive may not be for everyone due to its violence and gore, but it’s definitely a film worth watching. With a retro ’80s-inspired score and beautiful shots of the Los Angeles streets and skylines, it will keep the audience jumping in their seats from all the adrenaline and tension that arises from the film.
For once, it appears that Lindsay Lohan is being fought over to appear in a film. TMZ reports that Victoria Gotti herself has handpicked Lohan to play her in an upcoming film about her father and notorious gangster John Gotti.
Lohan even beat out Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti. Who would have thought this day would come? I’m personally so happy for her!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ that producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role, but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead. This isn’t surprising, apparently, as according to sources Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family and often spends time with them on Long Island. An inside job? Maybe. But Lohan should take what she can get.
Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman,” but TMZ is told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th to close the Gotti deal for good.
I think this merrits celebration. It will be her first movie role since her cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’ as a meth-addicted daughter turned nun, so I’m hoping this role will cause her to be taken a little more seriously. I’ve always been a huge Lohan fan, so I’m rooting for her. It’s time to move on up!
At first, Sky Ferreira seems like your typical pop star on the rise. The big, curly, blonde hair. The rock n’ roll sense of style. The I-don’t-care attitude. But her music and background are definitely no ordinary story.
“My dad is Brazilian and Portuguese and my mom is Native American. It’s funny because I came out looking like, pretty white,” says Ferreira over a phone interview. “I’m Caucasian-looking and none of my family is; everyone in my family is at least two shades darker than me.”
Ferreira, who recently released her EP “As If!” on iTunes on March 22, is definitely a star on the rise. Her and her song “Sex Rules” have appeared in national CK One ads, she has modeled for Nylon, Vogue Italia, Vs. Magazine, and on top of it all, is releasing a full-length album sometime next year.
It’s no surprise her modeling career has taken off, though – the LA native is a real head-turner. Her big brown eyes command attention, her style makes you want to rethink your entire closet, and her hair is just downright cool. But at the end of the day, what comes first – singing or modeling?
“I mean, singing will always be my first passion. But they’re all very important. Modeling is important to me and it’s definitely helped me get out there, so I don’t think it’s a disadvantage,” says Ferreira.
The singer got her start on MySpace, the online music social-networking scene that has launched the careers of Lily Allen and Sean Kingston alike. She attributes her big break to constant hard work and pestering record labels. “I wasn’t going out and doing really bad things, obviously,” says Ferreira. “I was going out and kind of getting myself out there.”
This pestering eventually lead to capturing the attention of Bloodshy & Avant, two of the hottest music producers today responsible for many Britney Spears hits such as Toxic, My Prerogative, and Me Against the Music. The Swedish duo worked on two songs off Sky’s EP – “Haters Anonymous” and “108″ – as well as her single “One.” The result? A unique sound that battles mainstream pop with French and Dutch quality.
Popeater is reporting that Lindsay’s parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, are incredibly proud of their daughter and firmly believe that she has taken huge steps toward getting fully healthy once more.
“She’s just a different person,” Dina explained in an interview with Matt Lauer. “Shes been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her.”
In a separate interview with the Early Show, Michael echoed Dina’s sentiments. “She has taken the right steps and put the right people back into her life,” he gushed.
Lindsay’s parents have had a history of public feuding, especially over what is best for Lindsay, so it’s nice to see them agree about something for once!
Lohan is expected to stay in LA to work on her clothing line rather than return to her Long Island home. She has no upcoming film projects after dropping out of what was supposed to be her comeback vehicle, a Linda Lovelace biopic titled “Inferno”, due to her time in jail and rehab.
Keep up the good work, Lindsay! You can get better! We believe in you!
But what do you think? Do you think she is doomed or will she make it this time?
This is kind of strange considering the guy looked pretty serious on “Good Day L.A.,” and later confirmed his intentions during an interview with the Associated Press. However he reaffirms he’s not serious.
Not sure if this was that great of a joke. We are talking about him at least, but we aren’t laughing.
TMZ is reporting that Brittany Murphy’s house is hitting the real estate market as her mom, Sharon Murphy, listed the L.A. mansion for US $7.25 million.
The spacious 8,000 square foot home, bought off Brittany Spears in 2004, is also known for being the location of Murphy’s death back in December, 2009.
TMZ is reporting that Casey Johnson has died. Casey is the fiancee of Tila Tequila and also the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. The body was found Monday morning in LA.
TMZ contacted Tila Tequila for a comment. Tila said that the two had been fighting last week and that Casey’s phone had been shut off since the 29th. Johnson was also a frequent Twitter user, and her last tweet was December 29 at 1:13 AM.
David Beckham’s success in Milan will not last much longer. According to perezhilton.com, Beckham will be returning to Los Angeles on March 9.
Following a highly publicized trade from the LA Galaxy to the AC Milan, perezhilton.ca reports that 33-year-old Beckham will be returning to Los Angeles once his loan deal expires in March. Beckham has been performing exceptionally well in Milan, scoring twice in five games for the Italian team. He signed a five-year contract with LA Galaxy in 2007, but had earlier expressed interest in staying on with Milan if they would offer the MLS side substantial money for the trade. The AC Milan was given until Friday to offer the money that Los Angeles specified, but no offer was made.
Tim Leiweke, chief executive of Galaxy owners AEG told the LA times: “We received an offer. It was rejected. We need to end the circus and the zoo.”
