And The Winner Is….

Bret Michaels!

Last night on the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump hired Bret over his friendly rival Holly Robinson Peete. For weeks now, Bret has been battling major health scares. Recently, a hole was discovered in Bret’s heart, only adding to the ailing rocker’s troubles. BUT, at least Bret can celebrate as the winner of Celebrity Apprentice. In an interview, Holly discussed going up against a man, who “cheated death” and how great of a guy Bret is. We’ve already prayed for Bret once, but maybe some extra prayers tonight wouldn’t be a bad idea….Congratulations Mr. Michaels on your win and managing to make the finale in New York! 🙂

Bret Michaels Wins Celebrity Apprentice

p.s. Kudos to Holly for having such a gracious attitude. She is the definition of a winner, and more celebrities need to be like her. For those of you who are not familiar with Holly, she is known for her starring role on Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper as well as a number of other television shows. Check out Holly’s Access Hollywood interview below.

In the latest film news…

The fourth and last installment of the Shrek franchise, Shrek Forever After, won out at the domestic box office,  debuting at numero uno with just over $71 million. The  animated feature beat out Iron Man 2, which took the number 2 spot, and Robin Hood. Because Shrek Forever After is technically a winner, I won’t mention that the movie fell short of its expected $100 million goal and caused shares in DreamWorks Animation to drop….

Anyways, we cannot forget that next week marks the opening of Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The trailers for Prince of Persia have created a nice buzz around the film, and is definitely making people want to check it out, including me. Personally, I can’t wait to put in my two cents about Ol’ Jakie boy as the main character Dastan. I’ve been talking about Mr. Gyllenhaal for weeks….lol

Who else is excited for Prince of Persia???

**And, in true Bina fashion, I am going to provide music that is appropriate for today’s theme. I have been hearing Jamie Foxx and Justin Timberlake’s single “Winner” all over the radio lately, and I must say that I am a fan.


Oooooooh JT,  I’m still waiting for you to drop that new album… lol  😉

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

Looks like our favorite starlet, Ms. Lindsay Lohan,  has a new single out! “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” is your typical slowish Pop song. However, it’s not as catchy as Lindsay’s “Rumors,” which came out in 2004 before the actress/singer ran into drug and legal troubles. Even though I am undecided about the song, I am glad to learn that Lindsay is scheduled to complete her alcohol education classes on time. At least she’s accomplishing a string of productivity nowadays. Maybe her new music should reflect more on that fact instead of just on generic boy problems??? Only a suggestion….Anyways, I do think that the words “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” could be seen as Lindsay’s subtle way of letting the world know that she is back and not stopping anytime soon.

Is it a winner??? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Lindsay Lohan Alcohol Classes

**With Lindsay coming back on the scene, I can’t help, but to draw some comparisons to the other redhead in Tinseltown, Ms. Cyrus. Both Lindsay and Miley began as child actors before picking up music careers as well. Now, that Miley is beginning to become more “mature,” one has to wonder if she, too, will soon be on the downward Hollywood spiral. Let’s hope not…..

p.s. A friend suggested that I write a post comparing Lindsay and Miley, and I think I’m going to do it. It just sounds like too much fun and hilarity to pass up, so consider the post written. lol

In the meantime, let’s remember the good ol’ days shall we. Here’s the video for Lindsay’s “Rumors.” Enjoy! 🙂

I’m liking this oldie a lot better than the new single. Also, the cage in this video reminds me of another girl’s recent video. Hmmmm…..Miley, maybe?

Side Note: After reporting about Bret Michaels’ latest battles in the ICU, I realize that I never updated everyone about the rocker’s current health status. Apparently, our prayers worked and Bret seems to be doing rather well. He’s even talking about touring by the end of May.

As much as I am happy for Bret, I think that he needs to take a breather. After all, the man did almost die! He doesn’t need to tour. Just sayin’……BUT, if this post’s theme is about not stopping, then I guess Bret is right in his decision.

Bret Michaels’ Condition

And, on another completely random note, Lindsay’s song title reminded me of another hit from way back when. You have to remember this one! I wonder what happened to the Young Gunz…

Awww, I miss them. 🙂

They Could Really Use A Wish Right Now

Unfortunately, not everything continues to be right in Tinseltown. So many celebs need either a prayer, a wish, or both, and I’m happy to give it to them.

Let’s Pray for Bret!

Almost two weeks ago Bret Michaels, frontman for the band Poison, was rushed to a hospital for an emergency appendectomy.  Though the appendectomy went well, Bret, only a few days ago, had to be rushed to the hospital again.  Michaels apparently suffered from a massive brain hemorrhage (bleeding of the brain). Despite rumors of his death, however, everyone can take comfort in the fact that the rocker is still alive – though in critical condition. Michaels is 47 years old.

For those of you of the younger generation (like me), you may also know Michaels from his hit reality show Rock of Love on VH1.

Let’s Wish Jesse James The Best

Though Mr. James a.k.a. Sandra Bullock’s seemingly soon to be ex-husband has received negative attention for his adulterer status, I still like to wish him the very best. People magazine reports seeing James leave rehab recently without his wedding ring (another sign that the couple might just call it quits).

Personally, I like the fact that James at least went to rehab. Some celebrities don’t even make it that far…. Plus,  it appears that he continues to be a good father when he is at home, taking his kids to school, etc. One can imagine that times are not easy for either him or our princess Sandra, so lets wish them both the best, eh? Who knows, maybe they’ll get back together and this won’t end in another typical Hollywood divorce…..

Lindsay Needs More Than A Wish and A Prayer

I’m still baffled about the number of times I have mentioned Ms. Lohan in these posts. Why is she always cover story news for her antics?!? Geez…Anyways, the latest update on Lindsay is that she was recently fired from another job. Over the weekend,  Entertainment Weekly reported that the director for the upcoming film The Other Side announced that Lindsay would be replaced on the project. At least Lindsay still has Machete, right? Honestly, I don’t know if either wishing or praying will work for this redhead…..Access Hollywood has even been highlighting reports of Lindsay being an irresponsible older sister. Ali, Lindsay’s sixteen year old younger sister, has been staying with the starlet in a home that apparently has little furniture and potential drugs all over the place. I hope Ali is not going down the same road as her sister. Two messed up Lohan siblings is not a good look.

And, because Lindsay has been having it so rough lately, I tried to choose a more flattering picture of her this time. Pretty girl. Such a shame…..

B.o.B.’s Wishes Coming True

**At first I was just going to leave this as a downer post, BUT there is also a lot of positivity in the celeb world, especially regarding our newest faves. For example, B.o.B’s Nothin on You dethroned Rihanna’s Rude Boy as the #1 song in the country last week. And, his newest single Airplanes, which provided the motivation for this post, debuted at #12. I wish B.o.B. on the continued success and pray that the music industry is nothing but kind to him.

Cop B.o.B.’s  album on 4/27!   😉
