Hi all you awesome readers of Awesomeness! I'm taking a short little vacation. I'll do my best to post, but I'm not sure what the internet access will be like. If I can't, fear not... I'll be back on Thursday, better than ever!!
Jared Leto recently gave an interview to g4tv.com where he talked about how much he hates bloggers and their blogs.
I think that blogging should die a sudden death. It’s just ridiculous. It’s like a playground for four-year-olds.... You know, it’s, like, eating too much candy. It used to be, to be a writer you had to have experience and talent, and learn a craft. Now anybody with an opinion, which is anyone and everyone, feels that it’s worthy... The blog is yesterday’s parachute pants. It’s here now but it’s gone tomorrow.... Most of the time the bloggers themselves are just trying to get famous so they can make some money and sell advertising dollars and duping these poor people who are on the internet all day long.
Aw, Jared, why so angry? I for one am thrilled that I need no experience or talent, or I wouldn't be here. And even more exciting is that I can dupe each and every one of you. DUPE THIS!
I know this sounds fake, but we really can't put anything past Michael Jackson:
The “Thriller” singer, who left the U.S. for the Mideast following his acquittal on sex charges, has been spending time on the Emerald Isle recently, and is looking into buying an estate there — possibly a castle — according to reports. What’s more, he’s supposedly interested in opening up a leprechaun-inspired theme park.
“Michael is deadly serious about this idea,” a source told
’s Daily Mirror. “He loves the whole idea of leprechauns and the magic and myths of
. It would cost around 500 million Euros [about $635 million] to do. He’s always wanted to open his own theme park and he thinks
is the perfect place and it will all be built around the leprechaun theme.”
The cash-strapped singer reportedly is meeting with businessmen to raise money for the park.
I am so there. Every day. Probably dressed as a leprechaun. Because if I need to find a job, it might as well be in Ireland, dressing up in green, drinking leprechauny beer, and speaking in a fake Irish leprechauny accent. All for Michael Jackson.
Also, if he really needs money to start this up, I am willing to give like $100 or even up to $200 (if I give $200, I want to be hired as Head Leprechaun, though).
The only question that remains: Which is more awesome a) Michael Jackson's Leprechaun Theme Park or b) The Pirates Dinner Adventure?
At first, I thought that someone took a picture of me last Sunday morning, when I was hung over and couldn't be bothered to brush my hair or put in my contacts, and I should have just stayed in the house, but I suddenly realized that I had to get the In & Out as quickly as possible, so I threw on my fat clothes and went out the door...
Then I realized, this is Mandy Moore.
I wasn't sure if I believed that rumors that Mandy and Zach Braff had broken up until I saw this. Now I know it's true.
Apparently Mischa Barton's time overseas has made her reflective. She recently admitted that when looking for a boyfriend, she doesn't want someone good looking, as that person might compete with her time in front of the mirror:
It's bad enough with me in the house. I'm really slow leaving in the morning because I'm lazy and easily distracted, and I also spend far too long looking in the mirror. It wouldn't be a good idea to have to share my life with a man who cares as much about his looks as I do about mine
This explains why she'd date Cisco
And Brandon "Firecrotch" Davis:
BEWARE, CARROT TOP! YOU ARE NEXT!!!
Apparently Joe Simpson didn't have enough ways to make money from his famous daughters:
[Joe] Simpson has a tight working arrangement with WireImage, the mega-agency and wire service that rules the red-carpet at nearly every high-profile event... On several occasions, a camera-wielding Simpson has gone toe-to-toe with other snappers for shots of his own daughters, then approved only his own images for distribution through WireImage. At other times, he has provided the agency with exclusive (and even racy) shots of his daughters on family getaways or in other putatively private moments.
Needless to say, other photographers aren't happy. One recalled being invited to cover an event sponsored by Jessica's record label, Epic, only to find her shots blocked again and again by Joe and his Nikon. "I thought it was really odd that he was always in my way, since I was the one who was paid to be there shooting," she says. Though the freelancer did manage to get some clean shots, Joe's were the only ones WireImage deemed worthy of being distributed.
How gross does one man have to be in order to become less sympathetic than the papparazzi?!
The Daily Record, a Scottish paper, has admitted that it published a made-up quote. Apparently the paper ran the following quote from Nicole Kidman regarding Angelina Jolie's charity work:
"It's not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital, but she's getting the publicity for her contribution."
Turns out that quote was totally fake! I'm shocked that sometimes the tabloids run things that are fake.
In other news:
It's also possible (but unlikely) that Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were NOT in love.
Aaron Carter asked Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche to marry him.
Aw! Look at these two crazy kids and how happy they are! And here are some reasons (pulled from People.com's coverage of the happy event) why I just know this is going to work:
