Vanessa Hudgens Nude Photo Scandal

September 16, 2007

I am so disappointed in Vanessa Hudgens (Gabriella in High School Musical) for posing nude and worse it leaked online. Why cant celebs keep their own private photos like under heavy security? Or better don’t take nude photos or let people take them!

I’ve seen her the pic, not going to comment on it. I’m not going to post it here, I want my site clean. She can be the next Antonella Barba.

 


I’m so innocent.

Thankfully she apologized immediately. But she’s ruined it for herself. Her future with be tainted with this picture of hers. No more the nice, innocent, girl next door image.

Disney backed her immediately, not firing her but keeping her for HSM3. Miley Cyrus and dad backed her too in a recent interview. Said Billy Ray, “Everyone make mistakes.” Said Miley, “Dad, the pictures are everywhere.” Yes they are.

I used to love you and your album, Vanessa. V was a fantastic album. Now, you’re just another teen star. Lets just hope you don’t end up like Lindsay.

Blake Lewis – “Audio Day Dream” – November 27th; Jordin Sparks – November 20th!!

September 16, 2007

Finally there’s a official date!

Blake, who is signed is Arista Records, is releasing his debut album on November 27th! A week later after Thanksgiving I think.

Jordin is debuting her album (title not known yet) on November 2oth.

Chris Rich meanwhile, in a interview , says that he will try to release his before Christmas this year or before his birthday next year, February 19th.

I would love to release my album before Christmas. Come out there before Christmas time, I think that would be fantastic. I think for this show, you always want to strike while the iron is hot. Because next season is going to come around, not necessarily will completely forget about you but it won’t be the same kind of anticipation. But for me, if not then, I would love for it to come out around my birthday. Around February 19. That would be a great birthday present. I just really want to make that album that you can just press play.You know? It’s a rock and roll album. A mixture of Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz. You’ll definitely be able to tell the influences in my music and of course, everybody’s going to always compare me to Justin (because like I said, the high tenor). A lot of people have that. It’s just creating that style and hopefully you can just press play and not have to worry about it. I spend more time, it takes me longer to write a song for myself than it does for someone else.

Cant wait for all 3!

Idols Preside Over the Closing Bell of Nasdaq

September 2, 2007

The AI6 tour stopped at times square to preside over the closing bell for Nasdaq, a Stock Market.

This one with Dr.Phil’s interesting speech. Chris was so sweet to move to the back to let the guy stand at the side. More goofy Blake, and goofy Chris and goofy Phil. Then they introduced themselves. Somehow Chris Sligh sounded squeaky and high. Blake introduced himself as ‘Jon Bon Jovi’ XD When it was Sanjaya’s turn, the audience laughed (weird, his name aint that hilarious)

 

This one with more waiting, the group into two: the boys (with Haley) and the girls (with Sanjaya) and more dancing and posing. Blake made a flower gesture on his face at 3.:17 then made a handgun and Phil danced the robot. Kids :) Then the hi-fives and the countdowns.

Enjoy.

Ratatouille (rat.ta.too.ee) [review]

September 2, 2007

Who would’ve thought thats how you pronounce that word? Watched this movie yesterday as well! Definitely currently the best Pixar movie and one of the best animation movies ever made.

It’s about a rat named Remy who has passion towards food and loves too cook! After being chased after a braty old lady and landing in Paris, Remy is all alone (except his imaginary friend, Chef Gusteau). He founds a boy named Linguini working as a chef but doesnt know how to cook. They bonds and he helps the boy to cook by controlling his actions just by pulling his hair. Naturally, Linguini falls in love with fellow chef, Collette and abandones Remy. In the end they bonded again and after the health inspector found out rats run the restaurant, it is closed down. But Remy, Linguini and Collette starts another restaurant on their own, with a rat restaurant on top.

I love this movie! Its filled with so much humour and the storyline is just great. Pixar’s best yet! “Finding Nemo” is closely second.

“Ratatouille” is currently ranked #103 of the “All Time Worldwide Box Office Grosses” with $371.9. Quite disappointing actually, as its a great movie.

The movie bagged “Best Picture”, “Best Original Screenplay”, “Best Original Score”, “Best Sound Mixing” and “Best Sound Editing” from “The 6th Annual Awards Daily First Half of the Year Awards”. Congrats!

Remember, EVERYONE CAN COOK!

Transformers [review]

September 2, 2007

Watched the movie “Transformers” yesterday. Overall, I think it was a great movie, because of the special effects and all the efforts the team had to put in to create the movie.

But honestly, if my brother wasnt sitting beside me, I wouldnt have understood half of what the movie was trying to say. I think I got most of the stuff, but some still remain unknown. The ending of the story was definitely expected, with the Decepticons dead and the Autobots won and staying on earth. And Sam got to date Mikalah.

Storyline is pretty complicated in a way, especially the Section 7 part, and the whole Mikalah’s father issue. But the good thing is its funny too, my favourite part being when Bumblebee peed lubricated on the guy. Hehe! And the ‘Sam’s Happy Time’ part! XD Here’s the video!

 

The movie’s pretty violent too, not suitable for children at all. It involves so much gun action and fighting. Not something you want to teach your kids.

Transformers is currently on the 29th spot on the “All Time Worldwide Box Office Grosses” with &676.2. Not bad. Could do better!

All in all, nice summer blockbuster.

Blake Talks About Idol and “Audio Day Dream”

September 1, 2007

Second runner up Blake Lewis of American Idol talks about Idol and his future album, ADD.

From EW:

Somewhere between stealing the show on the American Idol tour and spending hours in the studio, season 6 runner-up Blake Lewis — who recently signed with 19 Recordings/Arista Records — had the time to phone EW for a quick chat about his in-the-works album, tentatively titled ADD (Audio Day Dream). Lewis describes the disc, which is set to drop in late fall, as ”my Michael Jackson Bad album,” with each pop track featuring a completely different sound. And then, of course, there’s that whole beat-boxing thing, to tie it all together. Read on for deets about his beats.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So where are you with the album? Are you currently in the planning and writing stages, or are you in already the studio?
BLAKE LEWIS: All of the above. I’ve been writing and recording. Every day I have off [from the tour], I’m in the studio somewhere. By the time the tour ends Sept. 23, I’m going back to Seattle, and the producers I’ve been working with are going to come out to Seattle. We’re gonna start recording.

What kind of album are you going to create?
The album is going to be called ADD (Audio Day Dream). I like to call it the two-thousand-’80s, because all my musical influences have come from the ’80s, like new wave, Michael Jackson, Prince, Sting, U2, New Order — all this great electro-pop. I’m heavily influenced by electronic music because I’ve been listening to it from about ’93 to now.

How much beat-boxing can we expect?
It’ll have a hip-hop overtone…. Beat-boxing will be throughout the whole album, as kind of a journey. When you start the album and you finish it, it’ll be like an electronic or hip-hop mixtape. I call it my Michael Jackson Bad album, in the sense that every track on that album is pop music but every single track is totally different than the next. He has his ”Dirty Diana” and then he has his ”Smooth Criminal,” you know. The album’s organic, but very mechanic at the same time — that’s where the Audio Day Dream comes in.

Are you looking at collaborating with anyone on any of the tracks?
Yeah, I would love to. Me and Doug E. Fresh are gonna try to work on something. I really want to do a total freestyle track — just beat-boxing with MCs. I’m trying to get Chali 2na [of Jurassic 5], Mos Def, and my boy RA Scion from Common Market.

Do you have singles done now?
I’ve got a lot of tracks with rough mixes done. I feel that I have two singles already, maybe three. I definitely know which ones I want to come out first, but it’s all up to the powers that be. I’ve been working on music for a long time — I’d already started writing all this music a while ago.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Any response or feedback so far from the label?
BLAKE LEWIS: Every single idea that I have for this project, the company is in love with. I’m also making a documentary. We’ve been filming every single time I’m in the studio. We’re making a DVD that should be released with the album as well — kind of a journey through American Idol to the making of this album. It’s going to be great for the fans to pick up a copy of this album and see what I’ve been doing for such a long time.

Are you writing with your pal and fellow Idol finalist Chris Richardson?
Me and Chris Rich actually wrote this song, and in the studio it was just magic. It was probably one of the most magical days in the studio, where I recorded some guitar in Canada with Tim, our guitarist from the tour. I flew that night to L.A., woke up, got some talk-box on the track, and it’s just banging.

Is Chris getting a co-writing credit on that?
Yeah, he’s a brilliant songwriter. He might have a couple on Jordin’s and his solo album. So, yeah, him and I have spent 24 hours a day together since Hollywood week. Our melodic sensibilities are totally different, but they mesh really well together. He and I are definitely writing, like, every other day together. My stuff is more on the jazzy side, and his stuff is more on the pop, I guess, urban [side]. The mixture of both of those is really paying off. So him and I may have the first single.

Any of the songs you performed on Idol going to be on your album, like ”You Give Love a Bad Name”?
Definitely not. I don’t like singing covers unless I get to make them mine. That was already made for American Idol, and that’s cool. [But] I’d rather have all completely originals, unless it was some very avant-garde cover that no one knows, or something that you can bring alive and make it your own. I had fun with ”You Give Love a Bad Name” because, in a performance aspect, I was thinking: This is going to be really good. I had fun doing it.

How have you been managing to do all this while on tour?
I don’t get sleep anyway. That’s the only thing I could ever hope for: getting some decent sleep. [But] you know, man, me…I take nothing for granted, and I live it to the fullest. I could die tomorrow. I don’t want to waste any time. I’ve always let things come to me, and I always put myself out in the universe positively, so I’m just taking this moment and running with it and hopefully I’ll get to shore soon.

Great interview! Apparently EW is the one of the only magazine he subscribed. XD
Really look forward to the cake single! And the much rumoured cake tour!
Cant wait for ‘ADD’!
