Wyclef who?

Everyone knows who Wyclef Jean is. But if you have been sleeping under a rock for the past two months, dude’s been running for President of Haiti. No, it’s not an ill-timed joke, it’s for real.

Anywho, according to the latest news, we may not have to worry about the possibility of a President Jean much longer. Why, you ask? I shall tell you. Reports say that Wyclef Jean failed to make the list of legally approved candidates for the election on November 28. Is this the final obstacle in Wyclef Jean’s campaign? Is this the straw that broke the camel’s back? I bet everyone in Haiti cares about this story. Maybe I’ll start broadcasting to them.

It’s a slow news day week.


Arizona music boycott

Tom Morello (of Rage Against The Machine fame) has boycotted playing in Arizona in protest of the state’s SB 1070 legislation. This law allows police to actively seek out and question people they “reasonably suspect” to be in the country illegally. In other words, AZ is allowing racial profiling.

More than 300 artists including Chris Rock, Cypress Hill, Kanye West, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, Rise Against, and Tenacious D have Joined Morello, refusing to play in Arizona until the legislation has been overturned.

For a complete list of the artists involved with the boycott and for more information, visit The Sound Strike‘s official website. If you feel inclined to do so, you can also sign the petition against SB 1070.

Well it has happened– Brian Austin Green has officially become the luckiest man alive. Ever. Green and everybody’s favourite hottie, Megan Fox, tied the knot late last week in Hawaii. Green has appeared in such TV shows as Beverly Hills 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Smallville. Megan Fox is of course famous for her roles in the Transformers movies and has also appeared in Jennifer’s Body as well as every guy’s dreams.

Congrats, you lucky SoB!

Steve Carell to leave ‘The Office’

It has been confirmed by E! Online that Steve Carell is leaving The Office at the end of the 2010-2011 season.  Carell, who plays Regional Manager Michael Scott on the show told E! that he would not be renewing his contract when it is up next May. Regarding his exit from the show, Carell said “I just thought it was time for my character to go.” Steve’s current contract is for seven seasons, and it looks like seven seasons is all we’re going to get from Mr. Scott.

Carell seems confident that the show will do just fine without him, but I think he is the only person on Earth with that mindset. What is The Office without Michael Scott? Who can replace the World’s best boss? Perhaps Jim will be promoted from his number 2 position and become Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin? What do you guys think?

Is Whiteley Foxy enough?

Pictures from the set of Transformers 3 surfaced last week, giving us our first glimpse of the stunning Megan Fox‘s replacement, Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. While Whiteley does a good job of standing around looking pretty, she can’t fill the shoes of Fox, who revealed recently that she would not be doing any more Transformers movies. Rosie can definitely pull off the look-sexy-while-staring-off-in-to-space look, but she doesn’t quite hold a flame to our beloved Megan Fox.  She certainly has the looks, but it just isn’t the same.

Personally I don’t think the VS model was the best choice to fill Megan Fox’s shoes, but we shall see when the movie hits the big screen. RH-W is not nearly as recognizable as Fox, and I think that will definitely show in the end.  Transformers is still sure to succeed though, I mean, come on, it’s Transformers!

K-Stew is stewpid

This weeks Way To Go, Dumbass award goes to…..  Kristen Stewart.

It’s bad enough that K-stew is indulging in the abortions, I mean movies, based on Stephanie Meyer’s God awful Twilight books. Meyer cannot write and if I were dead I’d be turning in my grave. This isn’t about Meyer, though, it’s about Kristen Stewart and her recent remarks to the press.

In a recent interview with a British magazine, Stewart compared her fame and her hectic life to a woman being sexually assaulted. Her exact quote was “What you don’t see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction… the photos are so … I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped. A lot of the time I can’t handle it. It’s f**ked. I never expected that this would be my life.”

These remarks caused controversy among rape crisis groups and other media outlets. Kristen Stewart has since apologized, though, saying “I really made an enormous mistake — clearly and obviously… And I’m really sorry about my choice of words. … I’ve made stupid remarks before, and I’ve always reasoned: ‘Whatever. They can think what they want.”

Unrest in peace

Everyone knows that Gary Coleman had a pretty tough life. He was in the spotlight constantly and bad luck/drama seemed to follow him wherever he went. Dude’s been dead ten minutes and the attention is right back on him. Coleman’s parents kicked off when they were cut out of their son’s will.  They  have since officially changed their minds  and will not pick a fight over the will–the will which they were left out of.  Looks like Gary doesn’t want you guys mooching.

Can we finally let the fella rest in peace?

Full story here:

Who’s dyin’ now?

So I thought last year was pretty crazy with celebrity deaths. We had Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, Farah Fawcett, and Brittany Murphy. This year, though, we’ve seen four celebrity deaths in the month of May alone. First Ronnie James Dio passed away, then Brittany Murphy‘s husband died, then Paul Gray (bass player for Slipknot) was found dead, and today Gary Coleman unfortunately died. What’s going on here? Is death on a mission to kill off a random batch of celebrities each summer? It kinda sucks, to say the least. Whoever said deaths come in threes was wrong this time, we’ve just seen four and summer is barely here yet. Who’s next? When I found out that Dio and Paul Gray were dead, I honestly thought Bret Michaels would be the third person and that it would be a threesome of metal deaths. I mean, Bret has been in and out of the hospital a lot recently. For the record, I am glad he isn’t dead. Let’s keep it that way, yes?

Speaking of death, what do you guys make of assisted suicide?  Random, I know, but it was a topic that was covered in my death and dying class last week. I have mixed feelings about the topic. I mean, if someone has grown old and sick and has a terminal illness, do they have the right to be able to say they don’t want to live any more? If someone’s life has no value any more and they are only going to live out the rest of their days in pain and suffering, then I think they should be able to have the right to be euthanized, assuming they know both ends of the argument for and against and have consulted their loved ones thoroughly. I don’t think just anybody should be entitled to euthanasia, though. There should be parameters. I.e. terminal illness with no hope for a cure, no value of life, constant pain and suffering, things like that. I’m no expert, that’s just my opinion. Assisted suicide is legal in Oregon and in regions of Europe like the Netherlands, but should it be legal elsewhere? Yes? No? Maybe so? What do you think?
