Jade Goody

A former business partner and friend of reality star Jade Goody has confirmed that plans are underway for a stage musical about her life.

Danny Hayward told the BBC that dates for auditions for the lead role would be announced in three weeks’ time, so they can cash in on the death of the reality star…and another reality TV show on the way, like we have never seen any of them….Trash TV at it’s finest, a worthy tribute to Jade indeed…

He said: “Jade was just an ordinary,foul-mouthed, council estate, narrow minded racist girl (unintelligent,no great ideals and pretty much an idiot, who cashed in on fame) and the person (another desperate idiot) who plays her will reflect that. The most important thing is to give someone a break, just like she got.”

HMMMMMMM!……Really and I bet the story will be riveting and earth shattering too. Why would anyone watch this but then this is a country who condemns someone one minute and then praises her like Princess Di, wonders never cease to amaze me, and all announced on St George’s Day.

Hayward, who was one of the best men at Jade’s wedding, said that he is currently working on the script and hiring a creative team for the project ( a bunch of mugs who also want to cash in on fame-maybe Andrew Lloyd Webber perhaps).

He added: “(Jade’s) dream as a little girl was to be in a musical (as Jabba the Hut in Star Wars, or Maria from Sound Of Music, or a slag from Jack The Ripper) so obviously when she passed away it felt fitting to do something like this.”

Jade’s former publicist Max Clifford (another sleaze ball-who probably preys on young women to molest them) is also believed to be in talks with several film companies about making a movie based on Goody, called Goody-The Racist and the sequel ‘Revenge of the racist Pig”

Would you go to watch a musical about Jade Goody? No……

Who should play the reality star? Why not bring her back to life and use robotics (shit as we are working on crass!) or use Miss Piggy…

Let us know what you think about the idea?……

50 Dates, Elephants, a duet with son and new moves-could only be the King Of Pop Michael Jackson

Elephants, a duet with son and new moves as Michael rehearses

From hellomagazine.com

michael_jackson_-_the_king_of_pop

Michael Jackson is “going to dance his ass off” promised the promoter behind the singer’s comeback and farewell tour in London’s 02 arena. Intensive rehearsals have begun in a Los Angeles aircraft hanger for the concerts, which will apparently feature a menagerie of elephants, monkeys and parrots at the king of pop’s request.

In the spectacular – his first time on stage since the 2006 World Music Awards when he sang just two lines of We Are The World – the Thriller star also plans to hover above the audience, Peter Pan-like, during one number.

Factor in a duet with his 12-year-old son Prince which Michael Jackson will sing with his eldest son on the opening night of his London residency.

The 50-year-old singer is planning to invite 12-year-old Prince Michael I onstage to perform a surprise musical number during the first of his 50 ‘This Is It’ shows at London’s O2 arena in July.

A source said: “What better way to introduce his son to the music world than to have him come onstage during the most anticipated concert in history? Of course nothing’s set yet, and Michael is always changing his mind.”and the unveiling of a new dance move to rival the moonwalk, and the 50-date run is being hyped as the show of the century.

Whether the reclusive star has the stamina for that number of concerts after his protracted stint out of the limelight is a source of concern for some of his circle, though.

“Michael wants to put up a hell of a big show, but we are all holding our breath,” one friend recently confided in an interview with the Daily Mail. “He is going all out, and when you do that it comes with risks. Everyone is concerned about the number of dates.”

On the other hand the 50-year-old legend has been given a boost by the cancellation of an auction of memorabilia from his Neverland estate. He reportedly told his sister Janet a weight had been lifted off his mind by the news.

The ‘Thriller’ singer is also planning to ask Leona Lewis to join him on stage.

He reportedly wants her to sing his sister Janet Jackson’s part in their 1995 hit ‘Scream’.

Another source said: “Michael has a list of singers he feels could do Janet justice — and Leona is top. He hasn’t approached her yet but he’s a big fan of everything she has achieved.

“She’s massive all around the world and he feels this duet would give both their careers an even bigger boost.”

Great Cast, Rubbish Movie! Choosen by Ed Holden, MSN Movies Editor

Ed Holden, MSN Movies Editor

The great actors of today have earned their legendary status by starring in the unquestioned classics we all know and love. Look a little closer though and you’ll discover that even our most celebrated stars have made the odd stinker.

Occasionally, an entire ensemble of top-rung talent combines to produce the kind of dung we expect to find in the £1 bargain bin. How did they get it so wrong? Well, they’d rather not talk about it. Here are the worst movies ever made by great casts.

Alexander

Alexander

Oliver Stone takes on history’s greatest invader. The hype was huge. And so was the budget. The money left over after the ancient cities were constructed was spent on a stellar cast. But they couldn’t rescue this one. Ancient Macedonians with Irish accents, battles shot with cameras set to “epilepsy-inducing”, every (miscast) actor wearing lorryloads of make-up: just a few of the many reasons it was awful.
The Talent: Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie, Val Kilmer, Anthony Hopkins, Jared Leto, Rosario Dawson.

Shark Tale

A Sharks Tale

It was always destined to play second fiddle to Finding Nemo – the fishy feature that became the biggest selling DVD of all time. Cliched, predictable and unlovable, even to nine-year-olds, Shark Tale was the low end of the CG animation explosion. But take a look at the cast list and you’d think it was a modern-day crime thriller of the highest calibre.
The Talent: Will Smith, Robert De Niro, Angelina Jolie, Jack Black, Renee Zellweger, Martin Scorsese.

Be Cool

Be Cool

What’s most unbelievable is that, for all the big-name acting talent on offer, the only entertaining character was played by a guy who’d just finished a lengthy wrestling career. There’s hope for Hulk Hogan yet…
The Talent: John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, Harvey Keitel, Danny DeVito, James Woods, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Lions For Lambs

Law of the lambs

What just happened? Tom Cruise was sitting in an office, Meryl Streep was saying something about “The War On Terror”, Robert Redford was lecturing, then… oh yeah! We fell asleep. That last part was easily the least boring. Preachy, overlong and insufferably dull, this one felt every bit like a bad day at the office.
The Talent: Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Michael Pena.

He’s Just Not That Into You

He's just not that into you

The poster reads like a who’s who of Hollywood glamour-cats. But, with the exception of Jennifer Aniston, the A-listers on the call-sheet were all playing mini-roles that added up to little more than a reel of extended cameos. The movie itself was simply neurotic singleton Ginnifer Goodwin embarking on a two-hour mission to find a man with nerves strong enough to put up with her. Ours certainly were not.
The Talent: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper.

Righteous Kill

Rightous Kill

Finally!! The re-union of Pacino and DeNiro we’ve all been waiting for!! We were given the slightest glimpse of Al v Bob in that electrifying scene in Heat (1995). Now we would have a whole movie of these two towers of crime drama fighting the bad guys side-by-side. But… no. Making Pacino look bad for the second time (88 minutes was perhaps even worse), Jon Avnet delivers a turgid string of criminal set-pieces that would have gone straight to DVD were it not for the names.
The Talent: Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, John Leguizamo, 50 Cent.

The Brothers Grimm

Brothers Grime

A combination of two of Tinseltown’s best leading males, directed by Terry Gilliam in the kind of mythical comedy environment where the Monty Python director usually excels. But, for all the labours of a nightmare shoot, the humour fell flat, especially during the onset of some particularly hammy special effects sequences.
The Talent: Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, Monica Bellucci, Jonathan Pryce.

Space Cowboys

Space Cowboys

Half movie half Hollywood old boy network re-union, this was never going to be a masterpiece. Nevertheless, mash together the magic touches of Clint, Tommy and Donald and you expect something rather better than this. Three of the finest ingredients, combined to make something you wouldn’t feed the cat.
The Talent: Clint Eastwood, Donald Sutherland, Tommy Lee Jones, James Cromwell.

Bonfire Of The Vanities

Bonifre of the Vanities

A title that has become synonymous with the word “flop”, this abomination saw each of the lead characters struggling with faux-comedic caricatures that are just never convincing as Hanks and Willis lock horns over a tabloid scandal. The film wants so desperately to be funny. But it never takes off – swapping miscast Hanks and Willis in the two lead parts might have gone some way to rescuing it.
The Talent: Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith, Kim Cattrall, Morgan Freeman.

Ocean’s Twelve

Oceans Twelve

Imagine if Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Rooney and Messi all played for the same team. Now imagine if they lost in a shock defeat to West Bromwich Albion. How did they manage to get it wrong?! That’s how it felt when Ocean’s Twelve first crossed our screens.
The Talent: Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Andy Garcia.

In response to the article I posted earlier

We’ve had an overwhelming response to our blog about Michael Parkinson’s comments about the late Jade Goody.

Earlier we reported how the veteran broadcaster had said that Jade represented “all that is paltry and wretched about Britain” in his column in this week’s Radio Times.

Parkinson stated that, while he felt Jade’s death was as sad as that of any young person, he disagreed with the media’s manipulation of her from hate figure to Princess Diana-style saint following her death.

He described her as “the perfect victim of our times” and said that she should now be allowed to “rest in peace.”

We had more than 18,000 comments in the first five hours (more than we’ve ever had for a TV blog) and it appears that the majority of our users support Parky and his decision to speak out.

Almost 30,000 votes had been cast in our poll by 5pm, with an incredible 87% saying that they agreed with the chatshow host.

Mgnewson commented on our blog: “I agree totally with Sir Michael, at last someone has the guts to say it” while Victorcampbell said: “It’s about time someone injected a little reality into this situation.”

However, not everyone agreed and Kellyliveshere believed it was “a horrible and senseless thing to say” while Jessica.bungay feels that ‘Parkinson has just helped himself to become one of the most disliked men in the UK.”

What do you think about his comments? You can read them in full here and then add your own views…

At Bloody Long Last-Someone describes Jade Goody for what she was?-

Michael Parkinson

Great TV interviewer, good radio personality and generally some of his comments can be sexist..

But at last he has had the guts to say this-what I and alot of people have been thinking..

Jade Goody was Ignorant and Puerile

Read the article here below….I know you may feel this is not right, but come on have some guts.. .

Parky hits out at ‘ignorant and puerile’ Jade

Michael Parkinson

Sir Michael Parkinson has launched a tirade against Jade Goody.

The veteran broadcaster told the latest issue of Radio Times that the late reality TV star represented “all that is paltry and wretched about Britain.”

He said: “Jade Goody has her own place in the history of television and, while it’s significant, it’s nothing to be proud of. Her death is as sad as the death of any young person, but it’s not the passing of a martyr or a saint or, God help us, Princess Di.

“When we clear the media smoke screen from around her death, what we’re left with is a woman who came to represent all that’s paltry and wretched about Britain today.

“She was brought up on a sink estate, as a child came to know drugs and crime, was barely educated, ignorant and puerile. Then she was projected to celebrity by Big Brother and became a media chattel to be exploited til the day she died.”

His comments come just days after Jade Goody was laid to rest following a funeral that drew comparisons with that of Princess Diana. Thousands of mourners lined the streets and threw flowers as the hearse made its way to the service in Buckhurst on Saturday.

What do you think about Parky’s comments? Do you agree with him or do you think they come too soon after Jade’s death? Let us know what you think…

When Urban Trendy Areas become Hip?

Posted in Accomadation, Education, Fashion, life, Living, Music, Nights Out, Politics, Romance with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2009 by Richard James Clark II

This article is about all the trendy areas which become so expensive to live in, due to bankers and rich kids, estate agents putting up the prices of property, from the time the areas are tidied up by bringing in boutiques and culture.

Whereas before the areas were nasty to live in, artists move in make them HIP then the SIGN OF GREED changes everything.

London’s Shoreditch area is becoming the same.

It has been getting worse over the last 3 years, artists and residents are seeing the area change dramatically and it’s spreading to other areas, Dalston, Hackney and even Clapton.

It is fine if you earn a decent wage or get good money or try to make ends meet, but when general going out and food is getting so expensive-HOW IS ANYONE supposed to live.

On a personal note, I will be moving out of Bethnal Green due to the expense of living in the area and I mainly go out in South London, New Cross and sometimes West but not regularly.

So I know how I feel about these peoples situations but things move on and progress will continue….Unfortunately

Anyway Jnerio Jarel (The Hip-Hop Producer) was talking about this on Myspace about Brooklyn and I would like some London artists to discuss this issue…

Here is some views from Jneiro Jarel’s article-copy and paste below link

He got this from the link is to pitchfork about TV on the Radio producer David Sitek having to close his studio in Williamsburg because he can’t afford the rent, he is now moving to live in LA permanently.
