True Thursdays: Drugs and Superstardom

This morning I read a very interesting article about Bruno Mars on Access Hollywood’s website. The article raised the potential issues surrounding Mars’ arrest last month, and how it will affect his career. Some say that the arrest might help Mars. Even though Mars has created a more “wholesome” image for himself up until now, it is believed, due to all of the extra publicity, that the arrest will introduce the R&B/Pop singer to an even broader audience.

Bruno Mars is currently facing up to four years in prison for his cocaine possession in Vegas. And, according to the article, his first court appearance is scheduled for November 14th.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think it’s a mess that people are even talking about Mars’ arrest as a potential catalyst to further his stardom. Yes, I’m sure that Mars will be getting a lot of media attention after this. With that said, can someone please address the real issue that’s at hand? The singer was found with cocaine, which is probably one of the worst drugs to get hooked onto. Just sayin…If you want the truth, I think that someone needs to help Mars get off the drugs. I know that many celebrities do it, but no one needs coke in their lives.

Honestly though, I hope Bruno only gets a slap on the wrist. A controversial statement I know, but when you have other celebrities doing the exact same things and not getting punished for them (aka Paris Hilton), then I think you have to offer not only this guy, but also all the other people who get caught for the first time some slack. And, that’s the truth.

It Keeps Getting Better?

Yesterday, VEVO premiered Christina Aguilera’s new music video for “Not Myself Tonight,” and it’s already causing some hate amongst Lady Gaga fans. When Christina released the music video for “It Keeps Getting Better” a couple of years ago,  people accused her of copying Lady Gaga’s style. Granted Christina was wearing long bleached blond hair with bangs cut straight across the forehead, which is considered to be Gaga’s signature “look.” However, I would argue that Ms. Aguilera has always rocked the bleached blond hair with various different hairstyles. Perhaps it was just the timing of her chosen look that was the issue?

Anyways, people are already saying that Christina is copying Gaga once again in “Not Myself Tonight.” As a huge Aguilera fan, I must admit that “Not Myself Tonight” does have some resemblances to Gaga’s videos, especially with all of the crazy/frightening outfits. With that said, as much as people want to believe that Gaga is an “original,” everyone must remember that every artist, including Gaga, Beyonce, and Britney Spears has gained inspiration from and/or copied someone else before them. Let’s keep it real… Plus, Christina has always been a risk taker with her dramatic makeup, fashion choices, and music video concepts. Remember her video for “Fighter”?

Anyways, check out the video for “Not Myself Tonight” and let me know what you think. **It’s technically not appropriate for all ages. It’s a little raunchy people! Just a tad… lol

Update: I found the edited “clean” version! So the unedited has been replaced. You will have to go directly to Youtube to see it.

Whether she’s copying or not, Christina looks great and the voice is just as strong! BUT, will things keep getting better for Christina with this type of sound and video??? Only time will tell. 😉

Sidenote: Can artists stop advertising perfumes and alcohol in their videos??? Just saying…..It’s a little tacky in my opinion.

p.s. Check out the interview Christina did about “Not Myself Tonight” on Access Hollywood. Her baby, Max, looks just like her!

I also found this review of “Not Myself Tonight.” I have to say that I agree with a lot of what this guy’s saying.

He’s hilarious. lol

Christina’s new album Bionic, which includes “Not Myself Tonight,” hits shelves June 8th!

Where Are the Fairy Tale Endings?

That’s the question that I wish someone could answer for me. Now, I know that fairy tale endings are only for fairy tales lol, but something inside me has to believe that there is happiness out there for everyone. Unfortunately, in the latest chapter of Hollywood: A Travesty, things appear to steadily be getting worse for some of our favorite celebs.

Lindsay Lohan

For over a week, I have wanted to hear something positive come out about Ms. Lohan, but the news just keeps getting worse and worse. Already in the news lately because of a couple of “rude” comments made about her by the celebrity messiah (excuse the term) Dr. Drew, Ms. Lohan now seems to be dealing with some troubling financial woes. Access Hollywood reports that Lindsay is behind $600,000 in credit card payments. Not to mention, she owes almost $23,000 in rent the last time anyone checked. Perhaps these problems wouldn’t seem so problematic if the girl would just stop clubbing! Can someone please please PLEASE figure out a way to help her? Her future used to be so bright……

Remember this???

**Sigh**  the good ol’ days…..

Truth be told – Though I am reporting such negativity, I really am rooting for Lindsay. No one likes to see any celebrity hit complete rock bottom. If Britney Spears can get her life together, then so can Lindsay. Let’s forget about the potential failures for a moment (i.e. Ms. Houston)..*Cough Cough**

Is Lindsay Lohan In Debt?

Sandra Bullock

It was a sad day when us peasants learned that our princess Sandra Bullock was facing public humiliation for her husband’s infidelity. Now, it looks like Sandra may just call it quits on her marriage. People Magazine reports that she was recently spotted without her wedding ring. Sandra has also moved out of her house, leaving Jesse and his three children alone without a wife and step-mother.

Usually, I am in favor of couples working through such issues as infidelity, but I can’t say that I blame Sandra’s decision. She knows what’s best for her…

After waking up Hollywood with her role as Mary Jones in Precious, Mo’Nique discussed the sexual abuse she experienced as a child at the hands of her brother Gerald Imes. Recently, Gerald did an exclusive interview with Oprah about his past drug abuse and maltreatment of his younger sister. Although Gerald has apologized, Mo’Nique doesn’t seem to want anything to do with him. Just last month, she told reporters about the time when her brother showed up at the hospital to see her newborn baby. That story didn’t end well for Gerald, and I doubt this one will either….Maybe for happy endings sake, we should just count Mo’Nique’s Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress as a fairy tale ending?

MoNiques Brother Apologizes

*With all this in mind, I would be a liar if I said that no fairy tale endings happen in Hollywood. Actually, they happen all of the time. Despite the constant rumors, Angelina and Brad are still together and raising their billions of children. Meanwhile, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are about to start their own family. So see, Hollywood happy endings do exist! Well, at least until they fall a part…lol

And just for fun, here’s the trailer for Shrek 4 Forever After. Since we’re talking about failed fairy tale endings, this somehow seemed appropriate? lol
