James Blunt


BLUNT LANDING --- I've just heard the first best of the year, James Blunt’s fourth album, Moon Landing. It is, without a doubt, a killer on every level. When Blunt was first introduced in 2004, and his “You're Beautiful” became a massive, global hit … the die was cast. That success became both a blessing … and, a curse. A blessing, as Blunt was fully baptized as not only a terrific performer but also a great writer. For true songwriters, here was an amazing new talent, that actually wrote songs … with a beginning, middle and end. A curse, as that song became so big … everywhere, that people actually began to tire of it. It was too much of a good thing.


His subsequent albums, All The lost Souls (2007) and Some Kind Of Trouble (2010), were excellent works, but paled somewhat in comparisons to that miraculous 2004 debut. Personally, Souls was a big favorite of mine, as songs like “Carry You Home,” “Same Mistake” and th…

NAYA RIVERA COVERS COSMOPOLITAN FOR LATINAS

Image
Naya Rivera poses in the season’s most colorful looks on the cover of the Spring 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, on stands February 4th. The Glee star opens up to the magazine about her future with rapper Big Sean, how she’s planning for their life together, and her struggle to get ahead as a teenager.



On her fiancĂ©e, rapper Sean Michael Anderson, aka “Big Sean:”

“I think he’s going to be an amazing husband, and he’ll make a great father someday. He’s so kind to people, but he also wears the pants in our relationship, which I love. We Latinas are very independent and strong, so it’s even sweeter that I’ve found somebody who can let me out of that role for a minute.”


On indulging her domestic side:

“Latinas are really great nurturers who are great to our men; we love hard and we love to cook. The other morning I woke up and was like, ‘I need china – this table needs to be set all the time!’ Focusing on those things is where I’m at right now.”


On getting ahead as a teenager when her…

TAHJ MOWRY CLEARS UP SLURS ON HIS SISTERS

Tahj Mowry On Wendy Williams




Tahj Mowry, sibling to twin sisters Tia and Tamera, and starring in the hit ABC Family comedy "Baby Daddy," stopped by "The Wendy Williams Show" yesterday to clear up the slurs recently leveled at one of his famous sisters, the benefits of being an uncle and his football prowess.


Responding to some of the racist backlash his sister, Tamera, received for marrying Fox News reporter Adam Housely, Tahj said, "I deal with that all the time too. If I post a picture with all white friends around me, I don't have any black friends or... Someone told me the other day, 'embrace your black side', I was like 'you don't know me, what are you talking about?'" He added, "When people ask me what I am, I say I'm black. So for someone to tell me to embrace my black side...I just don't understand it."


SATURDAY EVENING POST LONG LIVE THE BEATLES

Image
Saturday Evening Post


One of the most highly anticipated flights touched down 50 years ago this February and The Saturday Evening Post reports in its latest cover story that America has never been the same. With the arrival of Pan Am Flight 101 at New York’s Kennedy International Airport, the Beatles landed to the roar of an adoring teenage audience and their parents’ consternation.


In “Long Live the Beatles!”, Cable Neuhaus, culture writer and former editor of Entertainment Weekly remembers the Fab Four as paradigm-shifters, “a masterful, ever-morphing rock band that dazzled us for eight years.”


The Post marries Neuhaus’s well researched, contemporary look-back with a sample of the magazine’s fine archival Beatles reporting, including dozens of photos that haven’t been seen since they were originally published in the Post.


“The Beatles section exemplifies some of the best work we do at the Post: big ideas, original photos, historical perspective”, said Steven Slon, Editorial Director, Th…

MEAT LOAF COMES CLEAN WITH WENDY WILLIAMS

Meat Loaf On Wendy Williams



To kick off Big Game Week on "The Wendy Williams Show", rock legend Meat Loaf joined Wendy on her couch today to remind musicians who they work for, reveal he didn't know most of the celebrities attending the Grammy's and explain the origins of his unusual stage name.

Set to take up a residency in Vegas, Meat had some sound advice for musicians whose offstage antics may overshadow their performances. "You have to be so disciplined. You gotta know who you're working for. You're working for the people who spent their hard earned money buying a ticket. And that's the most important thing. You don't show up late. You don't go out drinking the night before and get drunk."

SNL STAR BECK BENNETT'S SHORT FILM 'PLAN C'

"Plan C"



"Saturday Night Live" cast member Beck Bennett stars in the riotous animated short film, "PLAN C" from Writer Todd Waldman (ABC's "Happy Endings", "Awkward") and Director Joey Boukadakis("Dinner with Raphael", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamond"). The half live-action, half animated comedy explores a "Planned Parenthood" type scenario with an unexpected twist.

Bennett, along with fellow comedian Nick Rutherford ("The Office", "Kings of Summer"), plays one half of a pair of fast-talking, highly opinionated, animated twin fetuses biding their time in the womb until delivery day. "We knew they would be thrilled by the roles," said Boukadakis. "It's every actor's dream to play an animated fetus. It's the sole reason they attend Juilliard."

As founding members of the LA-based comedy troupe, Good Neighbor, Bennett and Rutherford had previously worked tog…

NEW YORK STATE LAX LAWS FOR IVORY TRADE

Image
Legal ivory – ivory that predates the 1989 global ban on international ivory trade brought on by world-wide outrage over skyrocketing elephant poaching – is often indistinguishable from illegal ivory. Worse yet, obtaining documentation in New York to prove the "legality" of ivory just requires some simple paperwork.

Make no mistake – having a legal market for old ivory provides a front for the laundering of new ivory from recently-killed elephants.

One of the reasons New York State is a major destination for ivory is because of its lax laws. A 2008 survey found 11,300 ivory products for sale in Manhattan alone, making New York a top destination for ivory.

Thankfully, state lawmakers are considering instituting an immediate moratorium on the sale of all ivory in New York. If it happens, the law will come not a moment too soon given Africa's massive recent increase in elephant poaching plaguing Africa's elephants.

Tell your lawmakers you fully support an end to ivory sales…

RINGO STARR AND PAUL MCCARTNEY ONCE AGAIN

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER
Story By: G. H. HARDING ****


GRAMMY DEAREST --- It was another old school vs. new school night at The Grammy's - their 56th broadcast - last night. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr sat front and center and were probably as bemused as most of the crowd, there and at home, by the rather bizarre performances from Katy Perry, Lorde (who did win Song of the Year), and even Pink; whose become known as much for her aerial abilities as for her singing. Dangling high above the cavernous Staples Center as she sang; I couldn't help but wonder what safety provisions were being employed. I mean, it’s commendable, but is it safe?


Teen-sensation Hunter Hayes was impressive, but seemed much too young and much too green to snare such a key-performance slot. Jay Z and wife Beyonce opened the show with the latter’s “Drunk In Love.” It was suggestive; somewhat repetitive; but, an opening act?


Director Ken Erhlich went with the staging where there’s a hub of so-called fans (hire…
