Video - Young Leo Howard Kickin' It In "Conan the Barbarian 3D" – New Trailer

Anybody who has been watching the new Disney XD show “Kickin’ It” knows who 14-year-old Leo Howard is.

Leo, who has a black belt in karate and is a martial arts master in real life, has displayed his skills in the Disney Wasabi Dojo profiled in the show and has made “Kickin’ It” a smash hit for the network.

Now he is branching out into his first big screen action adventure movie while taking a starring role.

But in August we are going to see a side to Leo that Disney will never show you.

Howard is playing the young “Conan the Barbarian” in the August 19th release of the 3D action film starring Ron Pearlman, Jason Momoa as adult Conan, Rose McGowan - and Leo as Conan as a child.

“Conan the Barbarian 3D” tells the tale of a quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce warrior, but soon turns into an epic battle against enormous rivals, horrifying monsters, shirtless villains, and impossible odds.

Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Lionsgate has just released a new red band trailer showing Leo in his role as young Conan while taking part in an epic challenge to decide who will fight with the warriors.

It shows young Conan participating in a challenge where he has to race through the woods with and egg in his mouth, and deliver it unbroken to the final destination.

But along the way the group is ambushed by the enemy and an epic battle ensues and Leo kicks some serious butt.

There is lots of blood and gore and Leo Howard saves the group and returns to the elders with the severed heads of three bad guys – then spits the unbroken egg from his mouth!

This is the first “Conan” trailer where we really get to see Leo in action and he does impress us with both his acting ability and martial arts moves.

The kid definitely knows how to fight.

Leo is no stranger to Hollywood.

He has already had roles in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”, “Shorts”, and “Logan” before snagging his role with Disney.

Howard also starred in the TV series “Zeke and Luther”, “Children of the Corn”, and “Aussie and Ted's Great Adventure”.

With a smash hit television series and now a major role in an action adventure movie we suspect Leo will be a hot property in the near future and will have directors beating down his door with job offers.

Being a teen idol seems to come naturally to the young star and he is not afraid to take the shirtless pose for teen idol magazines to keep the interest up among his young female fans.

If your kids aren’t talking about Leo Howard yet – they will be soon.

Justin Bieber Pulled Over by Cops in Miami - Photo

Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber and his friend Sean Kingston ran into a little trouble Friday night in Miami.

As we reported earlier, Bieber and Kingston were out driving Sean’s convertible Rolls Royce Friday while taking video of them playing pranks on various establishments.

First, they purchased a Frosty from a Wendy’s and tried to return it to a Burger King. Then they pulled off a quick “double coning” while almost hitting a wall in their $400,000 ride before running into a bit of trouble with the law.

The official word Friday night was that Bieber called the cops HIMSELF outside a South Beach T.G.I.F. Restaurant after fans spotted them and started to crowd around the teen idol’s car.

But now we are learning that that was not the whole story.

A witness and employee of T.G.I.F. told HollywoodLife,

“An undercover police officer was driving behind Justin and Sean Kingston. He pulled them over in front of the restaurant on Ocean Drive because he thought it was strange that this young kid was driving a brand new convertible Rolls-Royce.

While he was pulled over, people started recognizing that it was Justin Bieber and they started to surround the car. The police officer told the crowd to back away and then instructed Justin to drive off.”

As it turns out, the undercover Police officer was following the Rolls-Royce because he had noticed the pranking and didn’t recognize the driver and felt he looked “extremely young” to be driving such an expensive car.

He pulled them over for a well-being and suspicious vehicle check.



Word is after the cop realized it was Justin Bieber everybody had a good laugh and the cops helped to disperse the crowd that had gathered before sending the singer on his way.

We think if you’re going to go out and play pranks - a better idea would have been to NOT use a $400,000 Rolls as that may be a bit conspicuous.

Bieber was in Miami with his girlfriend Selena Gomez while she was performing a show as part of her “We Own the Night” concert tour.

This was the first time Sean Kingston had been seen in public since his tragic Jet-Ski accident a few months back that left him in intensive care for weeks.

But this latest run in with the cops seems to be playing into the hands of critics who say Justin has changed and is no longer that little clean-cut teen idol that used to laugh and smile all the time.

Observers say his sudden fame and tremendous financial success has started to affect his personality.

Just last week there were photos released of Justin and his dad Jeremy getting matching Hebrew Jesus tattoos under their left arm.

Related: Justin and his dad get matching Jesus tattoos - Photos

The two also inked matching five pointed star tattoos on their left elbow a few months back as well.

Not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s just that his fans were not expecting him to get inked up and start getting pulled over by cops and flipping off the paparazzi at such a young age.

We think it’s just a case of a young man growing into his teen years doing what every teen in America does at that age.

Coning is harmless – and it could be worse. He could be doing crack with Lindsay Lohan or smoking weed with Snoop Dog.

We say let him be, and hope he has the right people surrounding him while at the same time giving him enough space to be a kid.

Video - Ronan Parke Does Lady Gaga “Edge of Glory” – Preps for First Album

Not a lot of people in the United Sates know who Ronan Parke is.

He came in second place in the “Britain’s Got Talent” television show last year and, much like our own United States AGT runner-up Jackie Evancho, seems to be doing pretty well for himself.

Ronan, who was only 12-years-old when he competed on BGT, has already been signed to a record label and is preparing his first studio album.

But it has not been an easy ride for young Ronan.

During the Britain’s Got Talent competition he and Simon Cowell were accused of rigging the competition.

Parke was accused of training in secret for two years under the care of Simon – who was also accused of paying for his vocal couch and buying his cloths and sitting him with a fashion coach.

In fact, the day before the final show Cowell actually called the police to try and stop the rumors.

Watch Ronan Parke Talk about BGT Scandal


Ronan started singing when he was only three and has been taking singing lessons the last two years. After singing at a few birthday parties he decided to enter the BGT auditions.

He blew away the judges and audience, and was booked for the show and made it all the way to second place.

Watch Ronan Parke Sing on Britain's Got Talent


But now the show is over and Ronan has been in the studio after being signed by Simon Cowell’s record label.

He has also been performing live shows and has appeared at the Manchester Opera House, The True Loves Academy in London, The Edge Festival in Edinburgh, and at The Kazimier in Liverpool.

Not bad for the now 13-year-old.

His upcoming album will release on October 24, 2011 and will consist of remixes of popular cover songs.

In preparation for the new album release, Parke has been giving his fans a sneak peek at the various tracks.

One that caught our eye was an acoustic version of Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory”.

He may not be the next Justin Bieber, Greyson Chance or Cody Simpson but this kid has talent.

Ronan says that music is in his blood and it is all he wants to do in life. His parents are behind him 100 percent and it seems he is off to a good start.

You can visit Ronan on his Facebook page and can pre-order his new album here on Amazon.

Video - Meet Austin Mahone – Social Media Genius or the Next Justin Bieber?

Have you ever heard of Austin Mahone?

I bet your kids have. And they either love him or hate him – but they have heard of him.

So, who is Austin Mahone? What’s his bio?

Mahone lives in San Antonia Texas and is a 15-year-old singer and musician known for looking like Justin Bieber and recording cover songs on YouTube.

So what? There are lots of kids uploading videos and singing covers these days right?

But Mahone and his fans are different.

His fans are known as Mahomies - and he has his own Blog, Facebook, YouTube, Dailybooth, Tumblr, Twitter, SoundCloud, Formspring, and Myspace accounts.

He records popular cover songs and posts them to YouTube and interacts with his fans on a daily basis and claims that Justin Bieber is his favorite artist.



And oh yea, Mahone LOOKS like Justin Bieber and his fans love him.

The thing that fascinates us about this young man is his savvy for working the social media to create a name for himself while building his own fan base from the ground up without a record label or marketing rep.

He has learned to do what many adults and big companies have failed to do – create a successful brand.

In addition to uploading covers he has hundreds of thousands of Facebook fans, dedicated fan sites, over 13 million YouTube views, and sells t-shirts, posters, wristbands, Stickers, and Necklaces.

Heck, he's even been know to run around shirtless just to tease his female fans.

This is the kind of interaction that defines social media.

His fans love him but he admits that he also has haters saying,

“Haterz don’t matter to me because they are just jealous and the hateful words that they say are garbage. That’s why I don't listen to hate. I am curious of what haterz have to say sometimes just because I'm a curious person. But their opinions of me don't matter to me, because I’m not trying to please them.

What is important are my fans. I love them so much and everything they do for me. Haterz can't hurt you unless you let them. And I just have one last thing to say.... Haterz gonna hate Mahomies gonna love.”

Austin’s success is a prime example of how social media can springboard you into fame, build a fan base, and possibly launch a music career if you’re good enough.

So how powerful can a homegrown fan base be to a young artist like Mahone?



One day last week his fans decided he should appear on the “Ellen Show” with Ellen DeGeneres, and in one magnificent push of social media network power trended the phrase “#MahoneOnEllen” on twitter for the day as a worldwide trending topic.

His fans also bombarded DeGeneres’s Twitter and Facebook account and called her studio’s switchboard requesting she book Austin as a guest.

Why is this significant?

Because it was Ellen DeGeneres and her “eleveneleven” record label that discovered 14-year-old Greyson Chance.

And with less effort than Austin, Greyson has been propelled into a celebrity status with his first album “Hold on ‘til the Night” due to release next week.

Related: Greyson Chance gives video tour of his home town - Video

That kind of power by your own fans is exactly what made Justin Bieber what he is today.

One thing that helps make Mahone a fan favorite is he covers songs that are popular in today’s young music culture ranging from Cody Simpson, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Ne-yo, Usher, Adele, Chris Brown, and Edwin McCain.



So take note big record labels.

The youth of today have developed the social media skills to find, fall in love, promote, and make famous the musical artists THEY want to see and listen to - not who YOU want them to listen to.

Not that there’s not any place for “big music”, but things are changing these days and kids have grown frustrated with the “business as usual” mentality shown by the music industry.

They say that “necessity is the mother of invention”, and our kids are inventing a new way to communicate and enjoy their favorite artists and musicians.

We hope some of the adults out there are listening because these kids can teach us a thing or two about what makes them tick – and they are showing us what it is they want to listen to and who they want to fall in love with as a fan.

After all, if Justin Bieber's pet cat "Spaz" can get his own @Justins_Cat twitter account - than anything is possible!

Time will tell if a shirtless Austin Mahone will become the next big teen idol or music sensation…

Video - Justin Bieber Goes “Coning” – Almost Drives His Car into a Wall

What do you do when your worth $100 million dollars and bored?

You go coning!

While taking a break from working on his new album “Believe”, teen pop sensation Justin Bieber almost drove his car into a wall while coning at a local restaurant.

He also bought a Frosty from Burger King and tried to return it to a Wendy’s but was shut down by an astute manager.

And he filmed it all on his flip-cam.

Watch Justin Bieber Coning Video


As we told you last week, it seems that “Owling” is the new “Planking” but it looks like “Coning” may be taking the lead as the new social phenomenon.

The concept is simple.

Buy an ice cream cone at a drive-thru and when you grab it - you grab it upside down with the ice cream in the palm of your hand.

Related: Owling is the new Planking - Photos

But I guess when you work as hard as Bieber has the last three years you are entitled to a little time off and harmless fun.

For his part, Justin has been in the studio working on his new album “Believe” – and the buzz is starting to grow.

Related: Justin Bieber talks new album "Believe" – Video

With a list of top song writers and A-list producers working with him everyone is excited to hear what he is laying down.

Most suspect this new album will be a radical departure from his bubble gum “Baby” days and usher in the new “Justin Timberlake” era of his career.

And keeping in line with his maturing image, Bieber and his dad just released photos of their adventure to the tattoo parlor where they both got inked with matching tats of the Hebrew word for Jesus down their left side.

Like father like son.

Ah, they grow up fast these days don’t they?

And while Justin is enjoying some time off, his girlfriend Selena Gomez is back on the road with her band touring and just celebrated her 19th birthday.

As a birthday present, Bieber surprised Gomez on stage during her show to belt out “Cry me a river” as his gift to her.

Lady Gaga to Release Book of 350 Photos This Fall

Remember in the 1980’s when Madonna released her controversial book of scandalous photos?

The press condemned the move as a blatant attempt to use sex to sell a book of photos, and book stores around the country covered it with black plastic that only increased the desire to see what was on the inside.

Classic Madonna marketing.

Now, true to form, Madonna Lady Gaga is following in her footsteps, which seems to be her mode of operation these days.

Related: Lady Gaga accused of ripping off Madonna – Video

Lady Gaga is partnering with famous fashion photographer Terry Richardson to release a book of photos said to contain almost 350 pictures of Queen Gaga herself – in both color and black and white.

“Terry followed her around for almost a year during her Monster Ball tour and the subsequent recording of her ‘Born This Way’ album. He has collected the best of the best photos and they will be displayed throughout the book with comments from Gaga herself.”

The singer also wrote an extended forward to introduce her little monsters to her book smarts and meat dresses.

If this sounds familiar it is – Madonna already did it.

We can only imagine what kind of photos to expect as Ms. Queen Lady has quite an extensive collection of fashion accessories – think meat dress and plastic eggs.

But we do know that Lady Gaga actually has a softer side to her bizarre public persona that she rarely displays.

In fact, last week as a guest judge on “So You Think You Can Dance” she broke down in tears while on camera.

Related: Lady Gaga Cries on So You Think You Can Dance – Video

Releasing a book only seems fitting for the Platinum recording artist and concert touring Queen.

She is the Queen Bee of social media having amassed over 12 million Twitter followers – behind only teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.

And if these Lady Gaga fan tattoos inked by her devoted fans are any indication, then she has definitely penetrated the world’s popular music culture.

She also knows how to push the edge with controversy.

Earlier this month she performed in a wheelchair and mermaid outfit pulled directly from Bette Midler’s bag of tricks from decades ago indicating she may be running out of Madonna tactics to steal.

Photo - Ashton Kutcher and Angus T. Jones Appear in First New “Two and a Half Men” Promos

The Fall television season is fast approaching and all eyes will be on Ashton Kutcher and the new season of “Two and a Half Men”.

CBS, Warner Bros., and Chuck Lorre have the huge task of writing out Charlie Sheen and writing in a believable Ashton Kutcher storyline.

Can they do it?

Last week a new photo emerged of a half-naked and shirtless Angus T. Jones, Jon Cryer, and Kutcher standing behind a new “Two and a Half Men” poster.


Executive Producer Chuck Lorre has hinted that poor old Uncle Charley may be killed off in a plane crash so

“He can never make an appearance on the show ever again…”

We suspect there will be tons of interest and lots of people watching the first new episode to see how things shake out.

And this week a new curtain shot photo was released giving us a little preview of Ashton’s appearance for the show.


We were surprised they let him keep his unkempt hair figuring they would want a little more “clean cut” character – but hey, we’re not the boss.

But even with Charlie Sheen gone, we still enjoy watching some of the bloopers from the early days.

Related: Two and a Half Men Bloopers and Gag Reel – Video

For his part, Sheen is still trying to collect a $100 million payday from CBS but insiders say the case could be tied up in court for years and he will probably only get a fraction of what he is seeking – if any.

There is also a rumor that the crazy neighbor “Rose” played by Melanie Lynskey will be returning in some capacity as will Mom Evelyn Harper played by Holland Taylor.

And of course we hear that a sweet spot has been reserved for our favorite housekeeper Berta played by Conchata Ferrell.

The new season will premiere on September 19 at 9:00 pm on CBS.

Video – New “Journey” Rocks the Today Show – Talks About New Album

Anybody who grew up during the 1970’s and 1980’s remembers the original band Journey.

Who can forget "Don't Stop Believin”, “Lights”, “Open Arms”, “Wheel in the Sky”, “Any Way You Want It”, and "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin”?

And who could forget the unforgettable voice of Steve Perry?

Journey has been through a lot of transition since their inception when members from the original Santana left to create the new band.

Lead singer Steve Perry was hired in 1977 and became what most of us think about today when we think of the voice of Journey.

But today is a new day and Perry has left the group and been replaced by Pilipino lead singer Arnel Pineda.

Arnel is not the first replacement for Perry – but he is the latest.

We were excited when it was announced they would be performing on NBC’s “Today” Show - and if we close our eyes we can almost hear Perry – and remember the golden early days.

Watch the new “Journey” on the NBC Today Show

Okay, they aren’t bad – but it just doesn’t seem the same as it was in the old days.

But Journey has definitely left their mark on popular culture.

"Don't Stop Believin” was used on “The Sopranos”, and then adapted for the hit television show “Glee” and the “Family Guy”.

The band's second album with Arnel Pineda, “Eclipse”, was released in May 2011 and debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 chart.

Video - Lady Gaga Moved to Tears on “So You Think You Can Dance” – Marko Germar Reigns

Wow, what an emotional night on “So You Think You Can Dance”.

Not only was the dance emotional, but SYTYCD guest judge Lady Gaga actually broke down in tears – sobbing as she voiced her feelings.

In an amazing dance by Marko Germar and Allison to Jeff Buckley‘s passionate tune “I Know It’s Over”, they stunned the judges and the audience as they moved fluidly across the stage.

It really was very impressive and they got a standing ovation from the judges.

By the time the dance was over and the cameras panned to the judges it was clear that Lady Gaga had been moved to tears.

“I’m just so proud of you. There are so, so many things I did wrong when I was younger. And so many things I wish I could take back and I felt every moment of that through your dance tonight.”

After Gaga’s tearful critique of his performance, Marko pointed out his mother in the audience and said this was the first time she had ever had the chance to see him dance live and apologized for not being the best kid as he was growing up.

It moved his mother to tears.

Marko told his mom,

“This is the first time my Mom has got to see me dance live, I dedicate this dance to her. I wasn’t the best kid, I was a bit if a brat and I said some things that I shouldn’t and I want to say I’m sorry and I love you.”

Video - Fabio Challenges Old Spice Guy to a Duel – Mustafa Accepts – It’s On!

Hello, ladies and handsomely men!

In what may become the next epic battle, Fabio has issued a challenge to the old “Old Spice” guy – he has challenged Mustafa to a duel.

That’s right – Fabio Lanzoni has become the new “Old Spice Guy”.

In a new ad campaign created by Portland Oregon firm Wieden & Kennedy, Fabio has been shown on television and YouTube challenging the old “Old Spice” guy Isaiah Mustafa to a duel.

Mustafa, who has represented the Proctor and Gamble cologne for years says he is up to the challenge and prepared for the fight.

P&G says,

“In this campaign Fabio is the ‘New Old Spice Guy’ replacing Isaiah Mustafa. The commercials are part of Old Spice's campaign ‘ManoAMano in el Bano’ in which ‘The Old Old Spice Guy’ accepts Fabio's challenge.

We wanted something young and hip, but also something that was more than just TV ads. By utilizing YouTube and other social media we can draw attention to our product and create both new and younger consumers. So far it has been a tremendous success.”



Fabio is no stranger to plugging products. In the past he has been a spokesman for I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter, Geek Squad, Oral-B, and Nationwide Insurance.

He also has developed a woman’s clothing line for Sam’s Club and has penned several fitness books and appeared in the movies “The Exorcist 3”, “Dude, Where’s My Car?”, “Zoolander”, “Spy Hard”, and “Death Becomes Her”.



We have to admit – it is a clever and funny campaign and suspect it will do well.

Isaiah Mustafa is no stranger to television either.

Since his career took off in 2005 he has appeared in numerous television shows including “Chuck”, “Ugly Betty”, “NCIS”, “Football Wives”, “Castle”, “Love Bites”, and “Hot in Cleveland”.

He is also a veteran of the big screen and just appeared in the movie “Horrible Bosses” and is currently filming the 2012 remake of “The Three Stooges” starring SofĂ­a Vergara, Jane Lynch, Larry David, and Sean Hayes as ‘Larry’.

We applaud P&G on their creativity and use of multiple media platforms and think this is the new normal for a successful advertising campaign.

Video - Piers Morgan Now Involved with Phone Hacking Scandal

I wish I could say “It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy” – but I’d be lying.

I really dislike Piers Morgan.

I didn’t like him, or even know who he was, when he appeared on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, and I have grown to despise him as the replacement for Larry King on CNN.

By the way, “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN is their WORST rated show in their entire lineup.

And after his childlike behavior on the Gong ShowAmerica’s Got Talent” I have decided there is no longer a place for Piers Morgan on American Television.

And now a British blogger has come forward saying that he has recorded proof that Morgan was involved in the “News of the Day” phone hacking scandal while he was editor.

And British Parliament member Louise Mensch has gone on record saying Pierce admitted in his book to phone hacking and has really stirred up a hornets nest against the Simon Cowell wannabe.

For his part, Piers has gone on the record that he did not condone any illegal phone hacking while editor, and simply described in his book how the hack worked.

That’s an important distinction.

Describing how a phone hack works and actually doing it are two different things.

But we don’t believe him.

And after watching him battle it out with British MP Louise Mensch live on CNN this afternoon we have decided we no longer want Morgan on television in our country, and think he needs to learn a lesson on how we treat women in our society.



We suspect that he is guilty.
We suspect he hacked people’s phones.
We suspect he is lying.
We suspect he will deny everything.
We think he is smug and cheeky.
We don’t like him.
We don’t like the way he treats women.
We don’t like any of his TV shows.
We hope the British Blogger nails him to the wall.
We wish Howie Mandel hauls off and decks him.
We hope Sharon Osbourne smacks him upside his head.
We hope and wish he just goes away.

Thank goodness we life in a country we’re we can voice our opinion in a free and open way without the fear of going to jail or being killed.

Is it just us? Or do others dislike Piers as much as we do?

Photos of Justin Bieber and His Dad Jeremy Getting Hebrew Jesus Tattoos – Ouch!

We knew it! We knew sooner or later the pictures would surface.

You know what they say – like father like son.

InfoStar has just run across a few pictures of Justin Bieber and his dad, Jeremy, getting their now infamous Hebrew “Jesus” tattoos a few months ago.

Most fans knew that Justin already had a Jonathon Living Seagull tattoo on his lower left belly, but he surprised us last month while on vacation in Hawaii with Selena Gomez by showing off his new Hebrew script Jesus tattoo under his left arm.





We seem to sense a pattern here.

Now Jeremy and Justin both share a seagull tattoo, the Hebrew “Jesus” tattoo, and their newest creation was the five pointed star on their left elbow.

We first saw the star tattoo while Bieber was visiting home in Stratford last month and actually got photos of BOTH Justin and Jeremy sporting their 5 pointed star tattoo.

Related: Justin gets five pointed star tattoo on his elbow – Photo

Just looking at his dad Jeremy you can see where the Bieb’s gets his ideas from. The seagull tattoo is a family tradition with all the Bieber males when they turn sixteen.

It appears that the two are patching up the old wounds of his dad’s divorce when JB was only 18 months old.

Justin has been very vocal about the divorce and the pain it caused the family – and even wrote the song “Down to Earth” in an effort to get his feelings out.

But until recently we didn’t know a lot about his dad Jeremy – until we started doing a little snooping…..

It’s good to see the two getting back together but hope Justin doesn’t go overboard with the ink. We don’t want him to start looking like his mentor Usher, or worse yet – Chris Brown.

Slow down JB. Take your time and enjoy the ride.

Video - Justin Bieber Sings “Cry Me A River” During Selena Gomez Birthday Concert

Pop sensation Justin Bieber paid his girlfriend Selena Gomez a visit yesterday for her birthday.

The 17-year-old Bieber made a surprise visit on stage during Selena’s concert in Orange County last night to help celebrate her 19th birthday.

The Bieb’s took the stage during her acoustic set and belted out Justin Timberlake’s famous breakup song “Cry Me a River”.

Selena looked totally surprised but we suspect she had a good idea that something was going to happen during the show.

The only issue we would take on the surprise visit is that “Cry Me a River” is a song about breaking up a relationship – not celebrating one.

We hope Justin doesn’t know something we don’t yet.

But we think it was a perfectly innocent birthday gesture and taken at face value is actually a very romantic thing to do for his girlfriend.

Selena is currently performing concerts on tour with her band “Selena Gomez and the Scene” and promoting her new album “When the Sun Goes Down” featuring her hit single “Who Says”.

She also is starring in the recently released movie “Monte Carlo”, a comedy about three young women vacationing in Paris who find themselves whisked away to Monte Carlo after one of the girls is mistaken for a British heiress.

Gomez can also be seen this November in the comedy “The Muppets” starring alongside Mila Kunis, Emily Blunt, Neil Patrick Harris, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, and Amy Adams.

Justin Bieber has just completed a month long vacation and is now back in the studio working on his new album due out later this year.

Bieber will also start filming his basketball movie this summer with pal Mark Wahlberg with an expected release date in 2012.

Wahlberg says neither him nor Bieber will be singing or dancing in the movie, and it will be a good chance for Justin to bring his dramatic acting skills to the table.

The movie is being produced by Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, and Bieber’s manager Scott “Scooter” Braun.

Ah, to be young and in love – and have friends in high places.

Eerie – All These Musicians Died When They Were 27 – “Forever 27” Artist List

In light of the sudden death of singer Amy Winehouse today, we came across this creepy phenomenon called “27 Club” or “Forever 27”.

Some people just refer to them as “The 27’s”

What is it and who are they?

It is a list of famous artists and musicians that all died when they were 27-years-old.

Some call it a coincidence, others may call it divine, but it is mostly just sad that we have lost so many talented people at age twenty seven.

Jimi Hendrix – Drugs
Janis Joplin – Heroin Overdose
Jim Morrison – Drug Overdose
Amy Winehouse – Unknown at this time
Kurt Kobain – Suicide

Biographer Charles R. Cross says,

"The number of musicians who died at 27 is truly remarkable by any standard. While humans die regularly at all ages, there is a statistical spike for musicians who die at 27".

There is even a book “The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll” by Eric Segalstad and Josh Hunter that discusses the life of not only the above artists, but 30 other musicians that died when they were 27.

Coincidence?



Other notable names are Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan of the Grateful Dead, Pete Ham of Badfinger, Gary Thain of Uriah Heep, D. Boon of the Minutemen, Pete de Freitas of Echo & the Bunnymen, and Rudy Lewis of The Drifters.

And the list goes on…….

Truth can be stranger than fiction some times.

Remember kids – stay in school and don’t do drugs.

And finally, watch your back Lady Gaga.

Dead - Amy Winehouse Found Dead in Her London Apartment

There is some sad news in the world of alternative music today.

Twenty-seven year-old singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment Saturday afternoon.

London police were called shortly after 4:00 PM and asked to assist a female who turned out to be Winehouse.

When police arrived they found the singer dead.

Witnesses told reporters that they suspect drugs and alcohol was the cause of death.

Police have not commented on a possible overdose.

Winehouse had cancelled the remainder of her European tour last month after appearing intoxicated on stage in Serbia Belgrade and was heckled by the audience.

In 2007 the singer married musician Blake Fielder-Civil, but the couple had an increasingly violent relationship. Blake was sent to prison in 2008 on charges of obstruction of justice and they divorced in 2009.

Mitch Winehouse, her father, has not commented on her death but is currently travelling to London from New York.

R.I.P and God speed Amy.

You’re in the arms of the Angels now – may you find some comfort there.

Official: Jackie Evancho’s Album “Dream With Me” Goes GOLD – Sales Top Half Million Records

Good news for Jackie Evancho fans.

On July 18, 2011 the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified Jackie’s “Dream With Me” album as GOLD.

Congratulations to our favorite young crossover singer.

Evancho’s “Dream With Me” was released on June 14 and has really created a buzz around the young singer since her second place showing on “America’s Got Talent”.

Jackie’s first album “O Holy Night” which was released in November 10, 2010 not only went Gold, but was certified as Platinum on December 10, 2010 – one month after release.

We suspect that Platinum status for “Dream With Me” is only a month or so away and will be a great boost for her going into Grammy season.

The Recording Industry Association of America awards certification based on the number of albums and singles sold through retail and other secondary markets like iTunes and Amazon.

In order to achieve GOLD status an artist must sell 500,000 units, and PLATINUM status is one million units sold. The current category Multi-Platinum requires unit sales of two million or more.

Not bad for an 11-year-old prodigy.

In fact, she appeared last night on the ABC 20/20 special about Super Humans with Super Powers. It was an amazing segment if you didn’t catch it.

Jackie is still tracking well on the Billboard top 200 and is currently in 12th place beating out Lady Gaga, and still tracking in the number ONE position on the Billboard Classical charts.

Okay, next stop is Platinum and a Grammy Award so let’s throw our support behind her as much as we can. Think of all the people you know who could use a good classical CD for Christmas this year.

Go Jackie!
