  1. I think most ppl don't really care. The only people that do care about something like this are people who never miss an episode of Entertaintment Tonight, Showbiz Tonight, Daily 10...and all the other entertainment shows. The problem is that entertainment paints a protrait of anybody who is popular...that they are ppl who dont have no problems what's so ever. Even tho everybody has some type of problem. When they make a mistake and it gets leaked to the public. Man, they bring out any expert they can find and put up scenrios and how might this have happen etc. Like Tiger being a drug addict/sex addict. That he had a drug issue which lead him in2 sex addiction. I just think he did it cause he could. Which aint rite. But I will say this....he sure did pick somebody ugly chix. Some of these girls look like they are the 3am shift at a Denny's. What I think is more funny is that all these ppl in the entertainment news keep asking if this is a career ender. Like doesn't anybody remember Kobe trial and Michale Vick. Just like ppl have forgotten their charges...ppl will forget about this once he starts playing golf and winning again.
  2. Happy New Year Y'all!! :wave2:
  3. LMAO...I remember there was an episode of The Man Show...or I think it was the man show with Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Anyways they played a prank on guys at Mardi Gras. They got this chick to wear pasties to cover her nipples but the pasties had hair on them. So when the crowd starts yelling 'show us your boobs' she would lift her top and show off these hairy boobs. Jimmy and Adam would record the crowds reaction. Some of the dudes were like 'WTF' and seemed so horrified :laugh:
  4. He looks like a futuristic pest control dude wit that spray can. Was his album sponsored by RAID? It looks like it with those lil cartoons on the bottom. They look like the lil green roaches from the RAID commerical LOL
  5. Awww damn. So sad to hear that.... :-( R.I.P Mr. Magic
  6. How sad! R.I.P Just say on myspace a banner promoting the sales of seasons 1 & 2 of Shin Chan. I love that show.
  7. 'Dirty Dancing' star Patrick Swayze dies at 57 (AP)Source: AP 42 minutes ago LOS ANGELES – Patrick Swayze, the hunky actor who danced his way into moviegoers' hearts with "Dirty Dancing" and then broke them with "Ghost," died Monday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57. "Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," said a statement released Monday evening by his publicist, Annett Wolf. Swayze died in Los Angeles, Wolf said, but declined to give further details. Fans of the actor were saddened to learn in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from a particularly deadly form of cancer. He kept working despite the diagnosis, putting together a memoir with his wife and shooting "The Beast," an A&E drama series for which he had already made the pilot. Swayze said he opted not to use painkilling drugs while making "The Beast" because they would have taken the edge off his performance. The show drew a respectable 1.3 million viewers when the 13 episodes ran in 2009, but A&E said it had reluctantly decided not to renew it for a second season. When he first went public with the illness, some reports gave him only weeks to live, but his doctor said his situation was "considerably more optimistic" than that. Swayze acknowledged that time might be running out given the grim nature of the disease. "I'd say five years is pretty wishful thinking," Swayze told ABC's Barbara Walters in early 2009. "Two years seems likely if you're going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I'd better get a fire under it." C. Thomas Howell, who co-starred with Swayze in "The Outsiders," "Grandview U.S.A." and "Red Dawn", said: "I have always had a special place in my heart for Patrick. While I was fortunate enough to work with him in three films, it was our passion for horses that forged a friendship between us that I treasure to this day. Not only did we lose a fine actor today, I lost my older `Outsiders' brother." Other celebrities used Twitter to express condolences, and "Dirty Dancing" was the top trending topic for a while Monday night, trailed by several other Swayze films. Ashton Kutcher -- whose wife, Demi Moore, co-starred with Swayze in "Ghost" -- wrote: "RIP P Swayze." Kutcher also linked to a YouTube clip of the actor poking fun at himself in a classic "Saturday Night Live" sketch, in which he played a wannabe Chippendales dancer alongside the corpulent -- and frighteningly shirtless -- Chris Farley. And Larry King wrote: "Patrick Swayze was a wonderful actor & a terrific guy. He put his heart in everything. He was an extraordinary fighter in his battle w Cancer." King added that he'd do a tribute to Swayze on his CNN program Tuesday night. A three-time Golden Globe nominee, Swayze became a star with his performance as the misunderstood bad-boy Johnny Castle in "Dirty Dancing." As the son of a choreographer who began his career in musical theater, he seemed a natural to play the role. A coming-of-age romance starring Jennifer Grey as an idealistic young woman on vacation with her family and Swayze as the Catskills resort's sexy (and much older) dance instructor, the film made great use of both his grace on his feet and his muscular physique. It became an international phenomenon in the summer of 1987, spawning albums, an Oscar-winning hit song in "(I've Had) the Time of My Life," stage productions and a sequel, 2004's "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights," in which he made a cameo. Swayze performed and co-wrote a song on the soundtrack, the ballad "She's Like the Wind," inspired by his wife, Lisa Niemi. The film also gave him the chance to utter the now-classic line, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Swayze followed that up with the 1989 action flick "Road House," in which he played a bouncer at a rowdy bar. But it was his performance in 1990's "Ghost" that showed his vulnerable, sensitive side. He starred as a murdered man trying to communicate with his fiancee (Moore) -- with great frustration and longing -- through a psychic played by Whoopi Goldberg. Swayze said at the time that he fought for the role of Sam Wheat (director Jerry Zucker wanted Kevin Kline) but once he went in for an audition and read six scenes, he got it. Why did he want the part so badly? "It made me cry four or five times," he said of Bruce Joel Rubin's Oscar-winning script in an AP interview. "Ghost" provided yet another indelible musical moment: Swayze and Moore sensually molding pottery together to the strains of the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody." It also earned a best-picture nomination and a supporting-actress Oscar for Goldberg, who said she wouldn't have won if it weren't for Swayze. "When I won my Academy Award, the only person I really thanked was Patrick," Goldberg said in March 2008 on the ABC daytime talk show "The View." Swayze himself earned three Golden Globe nominations, for "Dirty Dancing," "Ghost" and 1995's "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar," which further allowed him to toy with his masculine image. The role called for him to play a drag queen on a cross-country road trip alongside Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo. His heartthrob status almost kept him from being considered for the role of Vida Boheme. "I couldn't get seen on it because everyone viewed me as terminally heterosexually masculine-macho," he told the AP then. But he transformed himself so completely that when his screen test was sent to Steven Spielberg, whose Amblin pictures produced "To Wong Foo," Spielberg didn't recognize him. Among his earlier films, Swayze was part of the star-studded lineup of up-and-comers in Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 adaptation of S.E. Hinton's novel "The Outsiders," alongside Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez and Diane Lane. Other '80s films included "Red Dawn," "Grandview U.S.A." (for which he also provided choreography) and "Youngblood," once more with Lowe, as Canadian hockey teammates. In the '90s, he made such eclectic films as "Point Break" (1991), in which he played the leader of a band of bank-robbing surfers, and the family Western "Tall Tale" (1995), in which he starred as Pecos Bill. He appeared on the cover of People magazine as its "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1991, but his career tapered off toward the end of the 1990s, when he also had stay in rehab for alcohol abuse. In 2001, he appeared in the cult favorite "Donnie Darko," and in 2003 he returned to the New York stage with "Chicago"; 2006 found him in the musical "Guys and Dolls" in London. Swayze was born in 1952 in Houston, the son of Jesse Swayze and choreographer Patsy Swayze, whose films include "Urban Cowboy." He played football but also was drawn to dance and theater, performing with the Feld, Joffrey and Harkness Ballets and appearing on Broadway as Danny Zuko in "Grease." But he turned to acting in 1978 after a series of injuries. Within a couple years of moving to Los Angeles, he made his debut in the roller-disco movie "Skatetown, U.S.A." The eclectic cast included Scott Baio, Flip Wilson, Maureen McCormack and Billy Barty. Off-screen, he was an avid conservationist who was moved by his time in Africa to shine a light on "man's greed and absolute unwillingness to operate according to Mother Nature's laws," he told the AP in 2004. Swayze was married since 1975 to Niemi, a fellow dancer who took lessons with his mother; they met when he was 19 and she was 15. A licensed pilot, Niemi would fly her husband from Los Angeles to Northern California for treatment at Stanford University Medical Center.
  8. This gives alittle more info on what the police found and a little bit of background on DJ AM DJ AM, who battled drug habit, found dead in NYC By COLLEEN LONG and NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, Associated Press Writers Colleen Long And Nekesa Mumbi Moody, Associated Press Writers 16 mins ago NEW YORK – DJ AM, the sought-after disc jockey who became a celebrity in his own right with high-profile romances and a glamorous lifestyle and survived a plane crash just months ago, was found dead in his apartment Friday. He had a history of drug problems. Police found a crack pipe and prescription pills in the Manhattan apartment, said a law enforcement official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. Paramedics had to break down the door before they found him, shirtless and wearing sweatpants, in his bed around 5:20 p.m., the official said. A friend had called police to say he was unable to get into the home in the trendy SoHo neighborhood. There was no evidence of foul play, and a medical examiner will determine the DJ's cause of death. DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, had talked openly about past addictions to crack cocaine, Ecstasy and other drugs, addictions so bad he once tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head — but the gun jammed. However, he claimed he had been drug-free for years, even swearing off cigarettes. His spokeswoman, Jenni Weinman, said the circumstances surrounding his death were unclear. She pleaded for privacy for his family. In October, MTV was to debut his new reality show, "Gone Too Far," in which he and concerned families staged interventions for drug abusers. In a recent interview with the AP, he talked about holding a crack pipe for the first time in years for the show and said he felt as though he had an angel on his shoulder for surviving so much turmoil. Last year, he was badly hurt in a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured rock musician Travis Barker. MTV did not have an immediate comment on whether Goldstein's show would air, but said in a statement that it "was honored to support him as he helped young people battle their own addictions." Goldstein, 36, was a deejay for hire who performed at Hollywood's most exclusive parties and was admired by music aficionados. He also was famous for relationships with the reality TV star Nicole Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, and with actress-singer Mandy Moore. Goldstein was critically injured last September when a Learjet crashed on takeoff in Columbia, S.C. The plane was transporting Goldstein and Barker, a drummer for the pop punk band Blink-182, after a performance; the pair had formed the duo TRVSDJ-AM. Barker and Goldstein were burned, though Barker was injured more severely. Goldstein had to get skin graft surgery, but about a month later he was performing again, joining Jay-Z on stage. At the time, he told People magazine he was grateful to survive. "I can't believe I made it," he said. "I've prayed every night for the past 10 years. There's a lot more to thank God for now. ... I was saved for a reason. Maybe I'm going to help someone else. I don't question it. All I know is I'm thankful to be here." Goldstein rose to fame several years ago as highly sought-after DJ whose beats kept the dance floor packed and clubgoers hypnotized. He was known for his deft mashups, a blend of at least two songs, and performed not only in clubs but on grand stages, performing earlier this year at the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif. He was to be one of the playable characters in Activision's "DJ Hero," a rhythm video game from the makers of "Guitar Hero" that uses a turntable-shaped controller. The game is set for release Oct. 27. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of DJ AM, who was a tremendous talent, a trusted partner and friend to 'DJ Hero,'" said Tim Riley, vice president of music affairs for Activision. "We hope that his work on the game will be a fitting tribute to his creative spirit and musical talent." Representatives for Moore and Barker didn't immediately return telephone messages seeking comment on the DJ's death, but other celebrities and fans instantly shared their reactions on Twitter, where "RIP DJ AM" was the No. 1 topic Friday. "I'm stunned. Rest in peace Adam," singer-songwriter Josh Groban posted. "I'm sorry to loved ones," musician and video director Pete Wentz wrote. "So unexpected." Singer John Mayer wrote: "We're supposed to lose our friends to time, at an age when we're ready to agree to the terms of having lived a long life. Not now." Goldstein was on Twitter just three days ago. He said he had just wrapped filming of the MTV series in Connecticut and was on his way to Atlantic City, N.J., to DJ. He also posted a lyric from the hip-hop legends Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five: "New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems." Media and onlookers flocked to his apartment, creating a frenzied scene; flowers had been placed outside the entrance. Fellow DJ Scott Schroer, known as Scotty Boy, said he went to the apartment after he heard the news to check for himself. He said he had known Goldstein for 10 years and had worked the turntables with him last week at the Palm in Las Vegas. "He was the first to really be eclectic in the mashup scene," Schroer said. "He mixed rock and roll with hip-hop. He was a pioneer." Schroer said Goldstein had been sober since he met him. When asked about the prescription pills, he said: "If you were just in a plane crash a year ago, I'm sure you would have prescription pills, too." ___ Associated Press writers Virginia Byrne in New York and Michael Cidoni in Los Angeles contributed to this report.
  9. DJ AM Found Dead In NYC; Police Sources Suspect Drug OverdoseAccess Hollywood - 33 minutes ago celebs:DJ AMTravis Barker DJ AM arrives to the Sprint Champion's Celebration at Marquee in New York<br />Getty ImagesAccess Hollywood NEW YORK, New York -- Adam Goldstein, also known as DJ AM, has been found dead in New York City at the age of 36, Access Hollywood has confirmed. Goldstein's body was found on the seventh floor of an apartment building on Lafayette Street on Friday, police sources confirm to Access. Police sources also told Access Hollywood that Goldstein is believed to have died of a drug overdose. Additionally, police sources told Access' affiliate WNBC that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene, including a crack pipe. Foul play is not suspected, according to police. Friends reportedly went to check on the celebrity DJ after not hearing from him for several days, but contacted authorities when they could not get a response after knocking on his door, law enforcement officials told WNBC. Sources told Access Hollywood, a 911 call was placed on Friday afternoon. Authorities arrived at the residence at 5:23 PM local time. Police went to the residence and broke down the door after arriving on scene, only to discover a white male in his 30s, wearing sweatpants and no shirt, dead on arrival, WNBC reported. A rep for DJ AM released a statement to Access on Friday evening, asking for privacy for Goldstein's family. "Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein was found deceased this afternoon in his New York City apartment. The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Out of respect for his family and loved ones, please respect their privacy at this time," the statement read. On Thursday, the celebrity DJ wrote on his Twitter page, "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems." Shanna Moakler, the ex-wife of Travis Barker, DJ AM's musical collaborator whom he survived a plane crash with in Columbia, South Carolina, in September 2008, posted a message of condolence on her Twitter page not long after the news broke. "My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends," she wrote. Lindsay Lohan, a friend of DJ AM's, also expressed her sorrow on Friday evening. "can't believe this.. i'm in shock. why? why? r.i.p. adam," she wrote. Less than a week ago, the celebrity DJ threw out the first pitch at the New York Mets game in the city. As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, just over a year ago, Goldstein survived a plane crash, alongside Barker. The two were airlifted to a burn center. "When the plane was on the runway I took my shoes off and fell asleep. The next thing I remember is us crashing into something," he told People, just months after the incident. "I woke up to Travis screaming and the plane engulfed in flames. I remember thinking it was like 'Miami Vice,' where a car is on fire and you run before the gas tank explodes - we gotta get out of here!" "Travis jerked upon the door and slid on his butt down a wing that was on fire. I tried to cover my face as I jumped through a fireball. As soon as I hit the ground, I remembered 'Stop, drop and roll,' so I started rolling," he continued. After putting out his own flames, he helped Travis, burning himself further in the process. "My eyebrows and layers of skin were burned off my face," he said. "My forehead was gouged and my arm had skin hanging off. I was in shock and didn't feel anything." Goldstein and Barker suffered second and third degree burns, but had no other injuries from the crash, Dr. Fred Mullins, medical director of the Joseph M. still Burn Center, told the Associated Press in September 2008. While he got back to work just a month after the crash, in March 2009, Goldstein filed suit against the plane manufacturers seeking $20 million in damages related to the crash.
  10. Out and about. But mostly been catching up on my reading :-)
  11. Life is about choices. We all make them and have to live with them. And I know some of these chicks that want 'thugs'. Then later on complain about how they are cheap, unfaithful, how they always in jail and always disrespecting them. Well duh! He a thug! LOL
  12. Well from what I noticed its been kind of split. Some people I knew back in the 4th grade loved WS when he came out with BWS. But as soon as Em came out with his record they acted like they didn't know the BWS. They acted liked they were being spyed on by the Top 40 LOL. They which sides often...they loved 50 when he came out with 'In Da Club' and then hated him when The Game came out wit his diss record. Then love 50 again when he came out wit Candy Shop. As long as radio DJs, MTV and BET gave the go ahead that its was alright to listen to it...they did it. Basically its okay to love him as an actor but not as a emcee. Cause everybody I know who doesnt like him as an emcee sure do love Bad Boys 1 & 2. But friends who are real into music...like aspiring musicians and singers. Like my friend who attends Berklee in Boston. He worked at his college radio station. He did a show that he would play all of yesterday's RnB and HipHop. He feels the same way about HipHop he believes a lot of artist now are not worth listening to. There's nothing original and he even said when he has kids he is gonna raise them on music that he considers real music. Anyways I asked him if he could play a song for me on his show. He said he would...I asked him to play The Rain. He was like "OOh yeah! Real Talk that track is amazing...Afro Angel is my favorite track off that album. But Willennium is awesome record" When he announced it on his show that the next song he was playing was The Rain. He co-DJ said "Ooh I love that track man. I love the Willennium album." He also had some other friends in the station and they were like breaking it down on lyrics and how much they loved what he said in those lyrics and even hoped for a new album.
  13. Those are some nice pix in that Redbook magazine. That 1 of Willow in bed...looked like she just woke up lol Thought it was funny how she posed wit the camera guy wit a cake and then dropped it :laugh: cant do the 5 sec rule on that cake lol
  14. :mad: I agree wit Jeff..that was straight up B.S. Okay I get if you tell a DJ who does birthday parties to play the Top 40 cause you dont know and DJ dont know what the crowd may want. But you got Jazzy Jeff! This man knows what a crowd wants. If I didnt know what the crowd may want I'll just leave it in his hands. And if people are vibin' and singing along. I'm gonna let the man do his thing. But to pull him off in the middle of his set while people are groovin' is just stupid :excl:
  15. MTV Awards writer: Eminem, Bruno stunt was planned 46 mins ago NEW YORK – The head writer for the MTV Movie Awards has settled the debate: the stunt involving Sacha Baron Cohen and Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards was completely planned. Comedy writing veteran Scott Aukerman wrote in a posting on his blog that the incident was staged and rehearsed in advance. At Sunday's award show, Baron Cohen appeared in character as his gay fashionista Bruno. He fell on top of Eminem after being suspended above the crowd. The rapper appeared to find little humor in the stunt and stormed out. Speculation was rampant over what was and wasn't real. Baron Cohen, Eminem and MTV have yet to comment on it. Aukerman's posting has since been removed. His manager didn't immediately return a call Tuesday. ___ On the Net: http://scottaukerman.tumblr.com/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Either way it's still funny as hell :laugh:
