Bad Girls Of Hollywood

By: Jim Brown

Paris Hilton was sentenced to jail, then to house arrest because she wasn't eating or sleeping and who could blame her would you feel comfortable locked in a small cell 23 hours a day. Now they have sentenced her back to jail again to finish her sentence.

Which she shouldn't get any personal treatment because she is a celebrity I'm sure several women in the same jail as she is depressed and not eating or sleeping. It's claimed that Hilton has learned her lesson and will not drink and drive again.

Also this morning on The View one of the ladies had a phone conversation with the heiress herself, where she stated, "I'm tired of playing the stupid girl, I'm not stupid and I will not act that way again." Which I'm sure we all figured it was a show for the media attention. Apparently she's not looked in the mirror since she's been there because she's not allowed to wear make-up but it was said she didn't care about that anymore. She talked about the power she had, the fame she had and the money she had and the things she could be doing with that money to make the world a better place, like charity work.

Maybe Paris Hilton has learned a valuable lesson and maybe this has made her open her eyes, grow up and look around her. But as I said before we will have to wait in time to see if she has realized what's going on and how she can make it better for herself and her family. And you have to remember you can't believe everything your read or see.

Paris Hilton isn't the only one going through a rough patch. Lindsay Lohan is going through a rough time just completing rehab and the press making it even harder on her to get her life back on track. Nicole Richie, she's gaining some weight back, she looks better and she's acting better so she's on the right path.

And then you have Britney Spears, who I would say has had it hard. A divorce, the incidents with her babies, the people she considered family and best friends stabbing her in the back and trying to control her life. But she went through rehab and every since then she's been pretty quiet in the media, she's focusing on her babies, on her career and getting her life back on track.

Let's just hope that all of the bad girls of Hollywood get on the right path and by 2008, have their bad girls rep gone and people seeing them in a new light and maybe seeing them for who they really are, human beings that make mistakes and will make plenty more mistakes just like the rest of us. So, in the end are they the bad girls of Hollywood or are they crying out for help? Let's ride this wave and find out.

Nelly Furtado’s Bisexuality - Just A Marketing Strategy?

By now everybody has listened her new album “Loose”. The album was named partly after the TCL band she admires for "taking back their sexuality, showing they were complete women”. It became the most successful album of Nelly’s career, reaching number one in several counties.

The release in June 2006 was also followed by a series of statements issued by the “Promiscuous” star. The real statement that got the press fired up was the one referring to her newly discovered bisexuality.

The “Maneater” singer revealed in an interview with a gay magazine: “I'm reading a book about Chinese medicine which claims all people are inherently bisexual to balance their energies. It makes so much sense. As humans we have both male and female energies.”

Furthermore the singer added that she believes Kurt Cobain’s statement that “in the end, everyone is gay”.

This is partly true. Studies show that men with a high sex drive have a more targeted kind of sexual arousal while women with a high sexual drive tend to desire both sexes.

This being said I wouldn’t argue that the artist is wrong. But clearly she does not have the best reasoning for her belief. In my opinion it would seem more plausible if she would have said she’s a woman who loves having sex and suddenly discovered she enjoys the company of women without saying this is something she read in a book which claims all people are inherently bisexual. So because she read some book now she’s a bisexual.

The debate is whether Nelly is dabbling about bisexual chic which in turn is used for advertising or it is all about advertising and her statements are made due to a marketing strategy.

Bisexual chic is a trend that now conquers more and more people. As a pure example of bisexual chic is Madonna who was seen kissing another girl in her music video “Justify my love” and the scene that made people go crazy at the MTV music awards in 2003 when Madonna kissed Britney Spears and then Christina Aguilera.

The thing is sex sells. And girl kissing girl sells even more! Let’s not forget the success the girls from TATU had. TATU’s lyrics and videos allude to relationship between the two of them and the girls promote it during interviews. The Daily Mail (London) wrote: “Tatu degrades marketing and music at the same time.”

So, is Nelly Furtado using the same marketing strategy as the girls from Tatu? Well, whether she is using this marketing strategy or not, she definitely is drawing lots of attention. Her songs are in top charts and that says it all.

Nelly Furtado is she using her newly discovered bisexuality as a marketing tool or is she just dabbling with bisexual chic?

Dallas And Thomas Co-star In New Thriller

Stars of Kyle XY, Matt Dallas and Bruce Thomas are set to appear in a new thriller entitled Babysitter Wanted. The production company responsible for this venture, Big Screen Entertainment Group (BSEG) concluded the principal photography last November and is currently in post-production.

"The cast did a fantastic job," said BSEG CEO Kimberly Kates in a conversation with Business Wire last year. "I couldn’t be happier with their performances. Our investors are very pleased with the results." Kates is also the film's producer, along with David Zappone and Stephen Eckelberry.

Northern California, Treka and Weed were some of the locations where filming was done, and Mt. Shasta in Siskiyou County was used as a backdrop for the film. Alex Vendler, who was the director of photography, used Panavision Cameras to shoot with the standard 35mm film gauge. BSEG Executive Vice President Michael Manaserri is also the film's co-director.

Business Wire said that the budget and look of Babysitter Wanted is similar to that of horror films Saw, Wolf Creek, High Tension and Hostel. These four films did well in the international movie scene and Hostel, which was executive-produced by Quentin Tarantino, was able to earn an impressive $90 million.

The film's cast is comprised of the Kyle XY stars, Dallas and Thomas, as well as 7th Heaven's Sarah Thompson, Bill Moseley, Kristen Dalton and Nana Visitor from Star Trek Deep Space Nine. Thompson will be playing Angie, a young woman who left home after college and applies for a babysitting job from an ad. She later on ends up getting terrorized the entire night. Dallas plays teenager Rick and Thomas plays Jim Stanton.

On Kyle XY, Dallas plays Kyle, a sixteen year old boy who suddenly wakes up to find that he has no recollection of the past whatsoever, and neither has a bellybutton. He is later brought to a children's home where therapist Nicole Trager is drawn to the mystery of his being. Together with her husband, Stephen Trager, they help Kyle find his true identity and eventually gets tracked down by Zizics, a company that creates clones in artificial wombs.

America's Continuing Infatuation with Hollywood

By: Jasmine Almira

Hollywood movie stars have almost reached god-like status in the United States. They are envied, adored, worshipped, and admired. What is it about these people that is so intriguing and why do we devote so much time and energy trying to find out about their personal lives?

Anyone questioning whether or not America is obsessed with Hollywood needs only turn on the television to see how movie stars and celebrities dominate our news and just about everything we see. Even the fashion magazines have movie stars on the cover; the super models have been banished to the back pages. Movie stars and celebrities are everywhere but what makes these people so special?

Perhaps an answer could be found in their flawless beauty and public image. People are generally in awe of these stars because of the image that they represent. They seem to have everything going for them beauty, glamour, money, name and fame. Most people can only dream of having these things. However, no one knows that these stars are carefully prepared from every angle, be it hairstyle, make-up, dress or public dealing.

Watching our favorite Hollywood stars in films and on television also can give people the mistaken impression that they know what a person is like. They can feel a sort of camaraderie to certain actors. However, in reality move stars have private lives as well as we really don't know what they could be like on a personal level, no matter how many interviews of them we've seen.

Hitting big time in Hollywood is based on good luck and pure timing. As a Hollywood actor to get yourself meaty roles you have to know the right people and be in the right place at the right time. Dazzling good looks will also go far in getting you noticed.

This also extends to musicians. Just take a look at all of multi-millionaire pop singers and ask yourself how many of them can actually sing? Considering all the recent accusations of lip-synching, the answer is not many. It's sad that looks have become more important to so many people than talent.

Though the stars love to be adored by the public and the media alike, they also have to face the repercussions of being too much in the limelight. Many of the stars have been troubled by star fixated fans some of whom actually become stalkers and harass them. This problem is more in mentally weak people who develop a personal relationship with the onscreen personas of the stars.

Hollywood influence does have its limitations though. Many stars rallied in the last US election to encourage people to vote against George Bush. He did win the election again, so it would seem that people aren't quite as influenced by Hollywood as many had originally thought.

Hollywood movie stars make millions of dollars from their fan support and people love to see them any chance they get. Tabloid papers spout lies and trash about the rich and famous, and yet people buy them up like hot cakes. America's obsession with Hollywood doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
