RIP Michael Jackson

June 28, 2009


Now I pride myself on only ever writing about things I want to on this blog, and not writing about something just because everyone else is talking about it.

But the passing of Michael Jackson is a historical day for music and popular culture, and I couldn’t just simply let it pass without a mention.

When I heard the news I was driving to work along the motorway and my mouth was hanging open with shock for the rest of the journey.  A legend was dead, and although I was never a massive fan, I don’t think there are many people who don’t have some sort of memory attached to some of his work.

The man had a strange, sad life in many ways, and perhaps he was the original car crash celebrity. But he will be missed and always remembered.

Rest in Peace, Jacko.

Oh. Dear. 

These “shoes” are apparently going to be the next trend for all fashion victims who rush out to buy the latest thing just because it’s “in”, never mind that fact that it’s FREAKING UGLY AS HELL. 

Like Uggs, and Crocs, but much, much worse.

I mean I ask this about everything I post but I will ask it again- SERIOUSLY??

Even the models look like they’d rather be wearing footwear of piranhas chewing away at their toes than these monstrosities.

Rihanna’s dress is scary, however you look at it

Ok.  If you look at the big, angry gorilla’s mouth for long enough, it starts to look as though she has a big, gory, gaping wound in her stomach.

You know, a bit like that scene from Death Becomes Her:


So, either way you look at it- big, screaming monkey or big, gory hole – it’s not really the best look.

Car Crash Videos: Total Eclipse of the Heart, literally

Someone at Literal Videos had way too much time on their hands to make this, but I thank them for it anyway, because it made me cry laughing

Twilight did well at the MTV awards

Ok, am I the only one stupidly excited about the New Moon trailer?  I mean, the film will be awful, just like Twilight was, but as I’m a bona fide loony fan of the books, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I still can’t wait to see it.

First of all, let me point out once again why I love Kristen.


Awkward but totally gorgeous and not afraid to opt for comfort on the red carpet.  I like that she does her own thing.

The film managed to scoop loads of awards, with both Kristen and Rob getting best male and female actor and they also got one for best screen kiss which they pretended to reenact:


Sigh.  Lucky, lucky girl.
