Listen: Jennifer Lopez Kills a Barbra Streisand Song (And Not in a Good Way)

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

So according to Perez Hilton, Jennifer Lopez got the brainy idea that she should try to record the Barbra Streisand/Donna Summer power disco ballad classic "Enough is Enough."

But there was one tiny problem. J. Lo can't sing like Babs or Donna. At all. Not even close.

Listen to the audio over the jump and pray that your ears don't bleed.

Apparently J. Lo is crediting Barbra with giving her the inspiration to resume her music career. Jennifer sang a Streisand song for her husband Marc Anthony's 40th birthday back in September and it went so well that she decided to get to work on an album.

Here's what she was reported as saying earlier this month on Showbiz Spy:

“I sang a song for Marc’s 40th birthday called 'My Man,'” she said. “It is an old Barbra Streisand song. But when I sang it — she’s so my idol – I thought, ‘I can’t believe I’m trying to sing a Barbra Streisand song. This is insane. What are you thinking?’ But I sang it and it was almost like I had graduated.

Sandra Bullock Suspected That Jesse James Was Cheating on Her

RadarOnline is reporting that Sandra Bullock had confronted her husband Jesse James in the past with suspicions that he was cheating, and he denied it.

“Sandra suspected that Jesse was cheating,” a source close to the couple tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “They got into four or five blowouts over it and every time he denied everything.”

Jesse reportedly denied that he was sleeping with other women (four have come out of the woodwork so far, but there are rumors of countless others), but told Sandra that he had been going to strip clubs.

I am not quite sure how this makes me feel. On one hand I'm glad that Jesse James' cheating on Sandra Bullock wasn't a complete surprise to her, as I think it would be the worst kind of betrayal to think your husband is all kinds of perfect but turns out to be worse than dirt. But the fact that she had her suspicions and stayed with him and praised him the way she did during awards season makes me feel even more sorry for her, if that is possible.

Ladies, as a friend of mine says, if it looks like a duck and it talks like a duck, it is a duck. If you have suspicions that your man is cheating, chances are pretty high that he is.

"We Are the World" With Japanese Impersonators

They should have released this instead of that god-awful remake of "We Are the World." I can't decide which of these Japanese impersonators I like best: Crazy Cyndi Lauper, cross-eyed Diana Ross or constipated Bruce Springsteen.


Lindsay Lohan to Appear on George Lopez

After battling on Twitter yesterday with George Lopez after he insinuated that the white powder in her stilettos was cocaine, Lindsay Lohan has agreed to appear on George's talk show on Tuesday. I am setting my DVR.

Lindsay went on a Twitter tirade after George made a joke about her on Monday night.

"thanks for the childish comment regarding baby powder in my shoes to loosen up the leather* don't you have kids?" Lindsay tweeted. "U wouldn't wanna hear that about them, or would you? Act like a grown man, have some respect and dignity for yourself."

Shannen Doherty Refused to Appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live

The booted contestants on Dancing With the Stars traditionally appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on the night of their elimination. But last night Shannen Doherty was a no-show on the talk show. DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli was hurriedly subbed in.

Jimmy admitted in his opening monologue that never in the history of his show has a dancer declined to appear.

"Shannen Doherty elected not to come," Jimmy said. "I'm glad I kicked her off." He then joked that she was drowning her sorrows at the Peach Pit and that America had finally exacted its revenge on Brenda.

Nice to see that Shannen Doherty is working hard to maintain her reputation.

Gerard Butler Grabs Jennifer Aniston's Bottom

Look at this picture. Don't you think you would need to be on VERY CLOSE terms with a friend or co-worker in order for them to grab you like that without you jumping in surprise?

Yeah, I don't think Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are "just friends." Friends with benefits? Probably. Cause I highly doubt Gerard would put up with Jen's neediness on an exclusive, long-term basis.

Once they have finished promoting their movie, The Bounty Hunter, my guess is that Gerry will move on to intimately groping some other co-star's butt crack.

Jesse James Checks Into Rehab

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Well, you would have to be blind not to have seen this one coming. TMZ is reporting that Sandra Bullock's dog of a husband, Jesse James has checked into rehab in Arizona. He is at the Sierra Tucson facility that specializes in drug, alcohol and sex addiction.

Call me cynical, but do celebs really think that all they have to do is check into rehab and suddenly all will be forgiven? (Yes, Tiger Woods, I am talking to you.) I don't even believe that Jesse is a sex addict. I just think he is a no-good lying snake in the grass who didn't realize how good he had it with Sandra and is awfully sorry now that he got caught.

I have just one question. If he is in rehab, and Sandra has moved out of the house they shared in California, who is looking after his 6-year-old daughter, Sunny?

Shannen Doherty Out on Dancing With the Stars

Shannen Doherty was the first celeb voted off Dancing With the Stars this evening.

My reaction? One bitch down and one to go. Yes, I mean you, Kate Gosselin.

To be fair to Shannen, she didn't seem like a bitch at all on the show, but her reputation precedes her. It was sweet that she was doing the show for her dad, who has been incapacitated after suffering a stroke.

I just hope that the mean mother of eight is the next one to go home.

My other wish for the show? That Pamela Anderson has a wardrobe malfunction on live TV.

Video: Crystal Bowersox Sings "Midnight Train to Georgia"

So Mamasox switched it up tonight on American Idol and played piano instead of guitar and she wore some killer stilettos that she clearly couldn't walk in. Simon Cowell is worried that she is going Hollywood and losing the essence of who she is as a performer, but I am not concerned. Crystal was just trying to show that she is no one trick pony. But if the dreads suddenly disappear, then we have a problem!

Video: Lee Dewyze Sings "Treat Her Like a Lady"

OMG, just when I thought American Idol had totally jumped the shark with the worst bunch of contestants ever, they suprised me and really stepped it up tonight. Crystal Bowersox was her usual awesome self, Andrew Garcia came back with a performance that was close to "Straight Up", Michael Lynche was solid and heartfelt, but wow, Lee Dewyze, really really did an amazing job. If he continues to improve like this, he is the one to beat. And he is looking cuter and less like Elijah Wood each week. (That is a good thing!)

A New Twilight Book Being Released in June!

Stephenie Meyer is releasing a new Twilight book on June 5.

It's a novella called The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and is told from the viewpoint of Bree, a newborn vampire featured in Eclipse (she is played by 15-year-old Jodelle Ferland, left, in the film due out on June 30).

"I began this story a long time ago — before Twilight was even released," Stephenie says on her website. "Back then I was just editing Eclipse, and in the thick of my vampire world. I was thinking a lot about the newborns, imagining their side of the story, and one thing led to another. I started writing from Bree's perspective about those final days, and what it was like to be a newborn."

Kate Gosselin Pushes Her DWTS Partner Tony to Quit

It only took a week, but in week 2 of Dancing With the Stars Kate Gosselin managed to push her partner Tony Dovolani so far that he quit in the middle of a rehearsal. Obviously the producers threatened him with grievous bodily harm, cause he came back and gave the bitch a hug. I bet Jon Gosselin was watching this and having PTSD flashbacks as Kate berated her dance partner. How Jon managed to stay married to her for as long as he did is beyond me. She is one nasty piece of work, but plays the victim. When Tony came back in and apologized to her, Kate whimpered, "I lot of people quit on me in life." Somebody needs a wake-up call. I hope she is the first one voted off the show, but get the feeling that producers may keep her around for the fireworks.

Brian Williams and Jimmy Fallon Slow Jam the News

Between Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Fallon, it's hard to pick which late night show I like better, but Jimmy might just edge out my fave Scot with his slow jams of the news. Last night Brian Williams (who is officially the new king of the comedy cameo — see SNL and 30 Rock, among others) popped in to explain Obama's new health care bill. If the NBC Nightly News was more like this, they would attract countless new, younger viewers. Certainly beats the hell out of perky Katie Couric.

True Blood Season 3 Sneak Peek: Sam and a Shotgun

Monday, March 29, 2010

So when True Blood ended last season, we knew that Sam was going off to find his birth parents. And according to casting news that was around at the end of last year, he gets to meet his mom and younger brother. My guess is that is who is pointing a shotgun at him in the scene below.

Sneak Peek at True Blood Season 3: I Love Eric

They are so right. Waiting sucks. Here's a little taste of Eric from True Blood's season 3. At least his hair is still short.

Owen Wilson Has Totally Gone to the Dogs

Saturday, March 27, 2010

First came Marley & Me, and now Owen Wilson is playing a troublesome Great Dane in Marmaduke. Not that I am complaining. I love a talking animal (I figure it comes from watching Mr. Ed when I was growing up).

As the owner of a part Great Dane, I can relate to the hell that comes with owning a large slobbery dog, so I am looking forward to this movie.

Does anyone want to go and see it with me, cause somehow I don't think I have a snowflake's chance in hell of getting my significant other to the cinema to see this one.

I was into this trailer, right until the end when all the dogs start doing something that looks a lot like the Macarena. Oy.

Oh-Oh, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie Reunite

It seems almost surprising to say this but Paris Hilton had kind of dropped off my radar recently. She hasn't been in any sex scandals or celebrity feuds, she hasn't got any new products to promote... in fact I haven't a clue what she's been up to for the past month or two. And that's kind of the way I like it.

But then I saw pics of her talking to Nicole Richie at a Victoria's Secret party at Trousdale nightclub in L.A. Apparently the former Simple Life BFFs are pals again. They reportedly kissed and made up following the death of their mutual friend Casey Johnson in January.

Since Nicole is busy with two kids, her multiple fashion lines and is working on a sitcom, I have to wonder about their new closeness. Is Paris kissing up to Nicole to get a role on her new TV show?

Robert Pattinson Has a Sense of Humor! Surprise!

I'm not sure how I missed this, but when Jimmy Fallon did his regular "Bothered" skit earlier this month, guess who joined him and his big hair in the tree? Robert Pattinson himself!

Since I rarely get to see Robert and his equally scowly secret girlfriend Kristen Stewart ever crack a smile, this was almost a revelation. Robert knows how to make fun of himself! And he looks nervous being up in a tree!

Watch and you will see.
