Funnyman Mike Myers wasn’t laughing at the recent The Love Guru premiere in Australia – he was battling diarrhea on the red carpet.
The actor realized he was ill on his way to the screening earlier this month and had to stop at a number of restaurants to use restrooms before he actually got to the premiere. But his embarrassment didn’t end there – he then had to try to hide his upset stomach from a fan at a pharmacy counter.
He explains, “In Australia, when you go into a drug store you actually have to talk to the pharmacist…I was looking around and I was, like, ‘Hi!’ ‘Hello, you’re Mike Myers, how are you? What can I do for you?’ (I said) ‘I’d like Pepto-Bismol please.’ ‘We don’t know what that is…What is it exactly, Mike?’ I was like, ‘It’s for tummy trouble.’”
But the confused Aussie staffmember at the pharmacy needed him to be more specific, prompting a desperate Myers to reveal he was suffering from diarrhea.
He adds, “(They said) ‘How very interesting, you’re a superstar with diarrhea.’ I’m like, ‘Hmmm, don’t feel like a superstar right now.’”
While the second installment of “High School Musical” was extremely successful, that might not be the case for Vanessa Hudgens’ second album,” Identified.”
The follow-up to her gold debut, “V,” ”Identified” shows Hudgens hasn’t really grown musically in the two years since that album’s release – her voice remains weak and uninspiring. The CD adds to her problems with sub par material.
“I’m tired of the boys who don’t like to dance/And if you don’t like to dance you don’t stand a chance,” she sings on the first single, “Sneakernight.” The song, produced by JR Rotem (Rihanna “SOS,” Sean Kingston “Beautiful Girls”), is sophomoric and tailor-made for the Radio Disney-set. It is also indicative of the entire CD.
A few tunes suggest the promise that “Identified” fails to deliver. The title track is solid, as is “First Bad Habit.”Amazed,” featuring Lil Mama, is arguably the album’s best track: The lip-gloss queen and the Disney star may even see a Top 40 hit with this one. All those songs were produced by Dr. Luke (Kelly Clarkson “Since U Been Gone,” Katy Perry “I Kissed a Girl”); Clearly he should have played a bigger role in this CD.
Lindsay Lohan looks simply stunning in this new photoshoot. Long gone are the days of stringy hair and dirty clothes. This is the Lindsay that we all love.
The head of gynecology at the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco is urging pregnant Angelina Jolie to get in touch with him urgently – so the pair can talk about the actress’ imminent delivery. Jolie is just weeks away from giving birth to twins and has a helicopter on standby to get her to the hospital. But Professor Alain Treisser reveals he hasn’t even spoken with the mom-to-be yet and is desperate to make sure all is well.
He tells Star magazine, “It is about time I examined her medically. I would like to go through the options available and plan the delivery. I was expecting to hear from her this week but this has not happened.”
Professor Treisser last met with Jolie in May when he turned down her demands to close off half the maternity unit for the birth, so the actress could deliver the twins under strict security.
Jolie, partner Brad Pitt and their children and assistants are currently awaiting the birth at the exclusive Chateau Miraval wine resort in Provence, France.
Paris Hilton has been banned from getting a tattoo by her rocker boyfriend Benji Madden, because he wants her to remain “pure.” The socialite, reality TV personality, and sex-tape star reveals that Good Charlotte rocker Madden is planning to have an image of her etched on his heavily-tattooed torso.
But Hilton isn’t allowed to return the compliment.
She explains, “He is going to get one of me but he won’t let me get one. He doesn’t like tattoos on women. He thinks I look pure.” Well Ben hate to brake it to you but that whole “Pure” thing I think went out the window along time ago.
Amy Winehouse stunned Jay-Z with her fiery temper at the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend – after launching a scathing attack on his pal Kanye West. The Brit has hit the headlines for attacking a reveler in the crowd at the English music festival during her spot on Saturday – but headliner Jay-Z was more put out by the singer’s comments about West minutes later.
Jay-Z, who was watching her show from the side of Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage, admits he was a little upset when Winehouse turned on his “brother” during a rant in which she attempted to defend festival organizers for hiring Jay-Z as Glastonbury’s first rap headliner.
She told the audience: “Imagine if it was a c— like Kanye West! ‘C—s like Kanye’ – should be his next album title!”
Jay-Z tells MTV.com, “She said something about Kanye late on (in her set) but I didn’t hear it and I don’t agree with it. He’s my brother and the biggest artist on Roc-a-fella (records) right now. I guess I should hook them up because he’s a great guy too. I don’t know what the problem is – I don’t know where that (comment) came from.”
Last night at the WWE’s Pay per View event, MarK Henry (the self proclaimed worlds strongest man) was allowed to become champion. The reasoning behind this is because of a racial controversy that recently reared it head. A WWE employee, Michael Hayes, told Mark Henry that he was more N***** then he is, got suspended for 60 days. In light of that event most WWE superstars in the locker room have been upset because prior to that incident, Mark Henry was no where near the top of the totem poll. He was not in line for a WWE Championship. Vince, take the title from him. Just give him a hundred grand and then call it a day.
Good ol’ Brit is in the news AGAIN. This time it is for being normal! Can you believe it? Britney, being normal?? Well Sources have confirmed that she is out looking to purchase a new home with a bigger back yard so her kids can play. That is probably the most motherly thing she has done in a long time. I commend you Brit. Now, if you can just stop showing your punanny to the public, you’ll be alright.
Meet Dave” star Eddie Murphy is dishing to Extra TV about leaving the movie business for good after the release of his latest film. “I have close to fifty movies and it’s like, why am I in the movies?” he said, adding, “I’ve done that part now. I’ll go back to the stage and do standup.”
Murphy, 47, said that while a “Beverly Hills Cop 4″ flick was in the works, he didn’t want to do it, because “the movie wasn’t ready to be done.” Murphy said he agreed to do “Cop 3″ because of the large fee he was offered. “They said this is how much we’re going to pay you. I said, ‘let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.”
Is it me or is VH1 getting really desperate for air time? VH1 present the new television series “I Love Money”. It’s a show that gives 15 wildly popular AllStar cast members from the “of Love” series, the chance to battle it out for what they really wanted all along fame and even more importantly money. Last time these cast members competed it was for the heart of Bret Michaels or Flavor Flav, but on “I Love Money” the stakes are arguably higher and definitely “greener” the winner is walking away with $250,000! You know you want to watch it!!..So tivo it in now you know you want to!…LMAO
I Love Money: Premieres Sunday on VH1, July 6 at 9/8c
This woman is getting worse and worse each time I see her. Her face looks like it is sagging off of her bones. Gravity is taking it’s toll on every other part of her body. Dressing up does not make you look any better Liv. Stay out of the public eye. You are hurting the public’s eye!!!
Hey David, the rules of the game are to not use your hands to touch the ball, let alone two balls with one hand. Throw the yellow card!!
If ya think there’s a blonde-on-blonde battle brewing between Pamela Anderson and Jessica Simpson, think again.
When asked her opinion on Simpson, who was photographed wearing the shirt in mid-June, Anderson called her a “b-tch” and a “wh-re” and told the hosts of the “Kyle and Jackie O Show” that she was not referring to “actual cows and chickens, but was referring to, you know, men.”
Simpson drew a flurry of criticism for wearing the shirt from animal-rights group PETA, which listed the “Top Five Reasons Only Stupid Girls Brag About Eating Meat” on their “PETA Files” blog and released a statement that said “the woman who thought that Buffalo ‘wings’ came from buffalos would benefit from some good veggie brain food.”
Simpson insiders reportedly told OK! magazine that the shirt was a subtle dig at boyfriend Tony Romo’s ex Carrie Underwood, who is a vegetarian and has twice been named “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian” by PETA.
For Greece! For glory! For ripped guys in skimpy armor!
Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are looking for a plot to hang a follow-up to 300 on, as they try to repeat the surprise blockbuster success of the 2006 flick adapted from Frank Miller’s graphic novel.
Fanboys will be heartened to know that, according to Variety, original director Zack Snyder is being wooed for the next installment, which will be based on a new graphic novel from the acclaimed comic-book writer.
The problem is exactly who will be going to war this time around, considering nearly all of 300′s main characters were killed off at the end of the first film, including Gerard Butler and his heroic pecs. Butler’s testosterone-fueled King Leonidas led Sparta’s small yet fierce army in a doomed but inspiring standoff against the Persians in the Battle of Thermopylae.
Miller must work out whether the new saga will be a prequel, a sequel or a possible spinoff headlining those who survived the brutal fighting, and whether there will be a number referenced in the title (150? 600? 3,000?).
The 300 follow-up isn’t the only swords-and-sandals epic in the works. Legendary is also hatching a remake to 1981′s Clash of the Titans under the direction of The Incredible Hulk helmer Louis Leterrier. Relativity Media, meanwhile, is developing a project entitled War of Gods. No word when those will unspool.
Snyder’s next film, Watchmen, an action sci-fi fantasy following a vigilante who investigates the murder of an ex-superhero, hits theaters next March. And Miller is set to make his directing debut with an adaptation of his graphic novel The Spirit, due out this Christmas.

While Kevin Federline partied in Miami Beach this weekend, Britney Spears stayed at home…with the kids!
It seems Britney had a 12-hour overnight visit with her two sons Saturday night at her Los Angeles home.
“The kids were picked up before noon on Sunday,” says a source.
It was Britney’s first overnight visit since Spears lost visitation with her kids following her infamous visit to the UCLA psych ward in January. Commissioner Scott Gordon, after being presented evidence that Britney’s mental health has improved, modified the terms of her visitation last week to allow overnight visits.
Meanwhile, K-Fed picked up where he left off in Las Vegas two weeks ago and partied at Miami nightclub Mansion on Friday night. Federline, who’s reportedly working on a new song tentatively titled, “Daddy’s Home,” was scheduled to return home to LA on Sunday.
Will.i.am is wearing the new Obama sneaker. Apparently they are a hot ticket and will be seen on many red carpets this year. What do you think about them? I think they are ok but a little tacky. I would not wear them.
Now, I know many of you do not like Paris for many a reason, and many of them are damn good reason’s. However, WOW, she looks damn good here. I would definitely like to spend one night in Paris.
