Stephenie Meyer Proves She Has No Talent

Having a successful book and film franchise under ones belt usually translates to the person having a boatload of cash and opportunities. Someone like JK Rowling parlays that into a lucrative post-franchise writing career, Suzanne Collins rests on her laurels and watching her bank account fill up with royalty checks from the movies and books being sold. Stephenie Meyer though decides that she needs to write a new book with the same story, with just a gender twist.

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined is the same old story that we have already had forced down our throats but this time Bella is a boy (Beau) and Edward (Edyth) is a girl! How creative and well frankly yawn inducing. It goes to show that Meyer isn't a writer, so much as she is the Kim Kardashian of the literary world. She got lucky once and wants us all to keep patting her on the back and congratulating her on how many ways she can keep this tired franchise going. What's really disappointing is that this book will race up the Best seller list and stay there, along with the Twilight inspired Fifty Shades of Grey books. New authors don't stand a chance of breaking through with this kind of nonsense going on. ]

Dipping into ones world isn't a bad thing, JK Rowling is writing a new movie script based in the Harry Potter Universe. Yet instead of relying on the tried and true, she is making the brave choice to do some untested things and really experiment with how popular that world is without the titular hero. Even using the argument that reboots and continuation series are incredibly popular, this project shouldn't have made it past the fan fiction stage. Meyer should have used her notoriety to spring another ill advised franchise upon us, one that would have dismayed another segment of the population, maybe some sort of Science Fiction series. At least then she wouldn't be compared to Reality TV's First Family of Trash....

Kim Davis Was Called A Homophobe....But Is She?

I know a lot of my fellow gays and allies are giving the headline a side eye and thinking about having an intervention for me. Don't. I'm not drunk, just want people to give a thought to a few things before we start labeling everyone and their brother, who don't agree with us homophobic. That word is thrown around more than lube at Pride, but have we sat and actually thought about what it means lately?

For those who have been living under a rock or watching Netflix and staying off of Facebook, Kim David is a County Clerk in Kentucky. Her claim to fame is refusing to issue marriage licenses to couples because she does not believe in marriage equality. Over the Labor Day weekend, Davis found herself in jail for refusing a Federal Judge's order to issue the licenses to anyone that is legally eligible. Her reasoning is that issuing them conflicts with her "deeply" religious beliefs. There's no need to get into the tabloid side of the story, needless to say she was mocked by her detractors.

Her supporters, and she herself, declared that her jailing was religious persecution and some even compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. That was a travesty in itself, one that could fill a whole book. They doggedly stuck to that line though, claiming that she had the right to deny rights to others because of her beliefs. The question that needed to be asked, is whose rights outweigh another's rights? Again that is not a question that can be answered in a blog post, but it is worth thinking about. And to clear something up, Davis was not jailed for being a Christian, she was jailed for not following the law. There are rules in place for a reason, to keep peace and keep people safe.

One and only one of my friends admitted to being conflicted about this case. On one hand she burning mad that this lady was denying rights to gays. On the other hand, she had a grudging respect for someone willing to go to jail for her beliefs. Everyone else took a side and debated this like it was the most important issue in the world. What Davis did was wrong, without a question. It boils my blood that she thinks that this is a Christian Nation and that she swore to uphold the Bible instead of the Constitution.

However those that compared Davis to "Hitler" and called her a "Homophobe" are wrong too. How can you say that you are on the side of love but still call someone else names? Love shouldn't be conditional, it shouldn't be only if you agree with the person. Ms. Davis is no Saint by any stretch of the imagination, but did she deserve to be called one of the worst men in history? By calling someone else names or making fun of how she looks, that's a form of bullying. Liberals are supposed to be against bullying and have a responsibility to be better than what our counterparts are.

Instead of calling Kim Davis a homophobe or worse, why don't we try and show the woman a little love. Let her get to see that being gay isn't what she thinks it is. Let's change her heart, instead of her changing ours.

Get Ready For Iggy Azalea's Comeback

When I started this site, I had one simple rule: Hotties rule, Britney haters drool. For all intents and purposes Iggy Azalea should be on my shit list and not written about at all, I mean she did come after Queen Brit. Yet there is something tragic and sad about this woman, that I couldn't bring myself to be mean. Other bloggers could be and I read a think piece that at once was racist and so mean spirited that I had to listen to Britney Jean in it's entirety before I could muster the words to respond to it in a meaningful way.

The blog is BlackMillennials.com. It is a site for black culture and heavily promotes the Black Lives Matter movement. Most of the articles are articulate and well presented but The Rise and Fall of Iggy Azalea is so nasty that I almost felt like I should be ashamed of being white. The author, Arielle Newton (who also happened to be the editor and founder of the site), shows no restraint in her hatred of someone that I am guessing she has never met. Yet there she is going on with her vitriol, the irony is not lost that she is demanding respect for people while also denying it.

The whole piece centers around Black celebrities who don't like Iggy Azalea or have said negative things about her, including Britney. All the while the piece is about how because Iggy is a white rapper and that is not OK with the writer. There is even a celebratory tone when the subject turns to T.I. allegedly cutting ties with her. What's missing from this "think" piece is that T.I. told The A.P. “It's definitely not a 'sever my ties, walk away, I'm upset' thing” he said, “It was more so like, OK,you have a lot on your plate right now. I'm going to pull back or wait until you come to a place where you're ready to come back to the table, so we can start again and make history some more.” Guess that was left out because it didn't suit the negative tone of the article. 

How does all of this add up to a comeback for an artist whose fan base has seemingly turned against her? Well let's look at Madonna, Lady Gaga, and yes even Britney herself. These ladies have all dealt with negative attacks and think pieces about how over they are, and yet each has come back stronger than ever with a slate of #1 hits that define the 2000's. Gaga is starring in one of the most prestigious shows on air right now, and the anticipation is much higher than it ever has been for American Horror Story. What Iggy has to do is redefine herself and make a song that speaks to her loyal fans. It's really that simple, she and T.I. both know that her music career isn't over yet. 

In Defense Of Nancy Lee Grahn

I love General Hospital. I love How To Get Away With Murder. Similarly I love both Nancy Lee Grahn and Viola Davis. Both women are supremely talented and very strongly opinionated. Now they are pitted against one another in a Twitter feud that is a fascinating case study of what America has become, and as ridiculous as anything that is seen on The Big Bang Theory.

Last night Viola became the first Black woman to win a Primetime Emmy in the Lead Actress Category. This was a monumental moment for the entertainment industry, and for Ms. Davis herself. During her acceptance speech, she talked about racism and how black women aren't given the same parts as their white counterparts. Nancy took to her Twitter account and said that she simply did not like Viola's speech, and that she felt that Viola should have included every woman in the speech. There was some angry tweets back at the General Hospital star, to which she had to defend herself and her stance.

Even today there are angry blog posts, including one from Luke Kerr on Daytime Confidential. All of those are saying that Nancy was wrong and that she needs to be more sensitive to the race issue of it all. I say hogwash, does racism exist? Of course it does, was Nancy being racist? I highly doubt it. This is a woman who will sound off about anything that bothers her, and she has never made anything about race. Even in this case, she just asked that all women be included. Nancy is a soap actress of a certain age, if she ever wanted to try and move to primetime, she would be hit with the same discrimination that Viola was talking about last night in her speech. The two are only 7 years apart in age, the difference between them is Viola got her big break in movies, and Nancy's was on soaps.

Sure Nancy has apologized for her words but I don't think that she should have. This is still America, and she has a right to say whatever it is she wants or feels. She didn't take anything away from Viola, in fact she said said several time that she thinks that the Emmy and Tony winner is a "Goddess" and extremely talented. Maybe the higher ups at ABC made Nancy apologize, while rubbing their greedy little hands together and thinking about all the publicity that GH and HTGAWM are getting from this little scuffle. Maybe Nancy felt that it was the best way to move forward, we will never know for sure,.

Another point of contention that I have with people calling Nancy out for calling Viola privileged is that she is. No other actress is given the same perks as Viola is in her contract with HTGAWM. That show is ever only going to be 15 episodes long because it's what she asked for. Yes the men get it and no one bats an eye, but if this was Billy Miller spouting about Terrance Howard would he be called out the same way that Nancy is? Doubtful. So yes I am #TeamNancy and will make no apologies about it.

Congrats to Viola for her historic win. And to Nancy stay strong, there are some of us with you!

The Celebrity Apprentice Hires The Terminator

When Donald Trump decided that a network audience was no longer enough for him, and he announced that he was making the 2016 Presidential Election a circus, he had to quit The Celebrity Apprentice. NBC was not going to let one of it's few successful series die but they had to get the right person to take over. Now they have found that person in the form of former California Governor and movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The question that I asked, as I'm sure many of us did is will we be able to understand what The Arnold is saying? No, no I kid, sort of. What makes a former bodybuilder think that he is qualified to run a business. NBC has the answer for you, he was in charge of Hundreds of thousands of State Employees and had to balance a budget in the billions. Mark Burnett says “After leaving the show to run for political office, Donald made it clear that he wanted ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes, and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights.” If the ratings are better under Arnold than they were with Donald, I am positive that Arnie will be called a clown or a dummy. You know the best insults that a billionaire has at his disposal. 

Now we need to get a new catchphrase for a new iteration of the show. "You're fired" had it's day in the sun but I really want Arnie to say "You've been Terminated" or better yet "You won't be back!" 

Picture Of The Day: Jussie Smollett Shirtless In Leather Shorts

Zayn Malik Nude Photos

Ok yes the title is clickbait but you all will forgive me I hope. If not I have a perfect picture to throw at the bottom for you. So our favorite ex-One Directioner, Zayn Malik really wants to get with Lily Allen. So he is doing what any red blooded man would do to woo the person they want to screw, he is sending her pictures of his junk.

The issue is that while Lily is in middle of a divorce, she is still technically married. And let's face it, Zayn probably isn't all that well endowed so she's probably wondering if this is what it will be like for her as she rejoins the dating pool. A source told The Sun “Zayn fancies Lily and has made that very clear. He has even sent her X-rated pics and raunchy texts which Lily has told quite a few people in her close circle about. She’s flattered.” I wonder if the British have another meaning for the word for the word 'flattered'? I mean fag means cigarette, Program means TV show, Presenter means know it all like Trebek. 

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's Fake Relationship

It's getting to be that time of year again, when all the fake couples from TV shows are trotted out in the hopes of a ratings bump. I know you all were hoping I was going to say Pumpkin Spice Latte season but no. Anyways yesterday rumors that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were hooking up on the set of The Voice. However Blind Gossip says that's not true.

Producers of The Voice love the rumors about Blake and Gwen because it piques interest in the show, and they will push away from those pesky cancellation rumors. Blake loves them because he can keep hooking up with Adam Levine without anyone questioning his sexuality, and please don't say they're not hooking up because I have gotten with a guy for less than what BlAdam does. I'm not sure what Gwen gets out of it, other than some more publicity. Here's what a source told BG: "It’s just a] PR stunt for the upcoming season of [his show]. You can expect those rumors about him and [costar] to stretch over the entire season. They’ll both play along. There will be flirting and denials and maybe a few “dating” photo ops. It’s good for the show but it’s also good for them personally because it’ll distract fans from the ugly divorce stuff." Miranda Lambert must have another juicy story that she threatened to unleash and Blake wants to get ahead of the story. 

There's a whole soap opera storyline right here. I mean look at all the players and differing motivations, throw in a murder and you have a Shonda Rhimes show. Actually let me go put that together and pitch it to her and I'll be sitting on a pile of Voice fanfiction money. 

Thank You For Being A Friend

30 years ago today, TV history was made. From the strands of the theme song, producers and network execs must have known that they had something special on their hands. And 180 episodes later, we all had a special moment with our ladies.

Enjoy the theme song and hit the comments with your favorite Golden Girls moment.

The Real Reason Bieber Cried

What is it about tears that make everyone feel sorry for the crier and forget what they did in the first place? Sunday night Justin Bieber played the crying game in his attempt to make people like him again. Do people like him anymore? It used to be that just mentioning his name in a post guaranteed it to have at least 1,000 hits. Nowadays it might generate 10 or so if you throw up a shirtless pic of him, more if you show his naked ass. This post about him faking a break down will probably only due like 10 or so views.

For the past few months Justin's team has had him on this born again Christian/reformed bad boy tour. He played it up with Ellen, who really out her credibility on the line for this punk Canadian. And how does he repay her? By taking a naked pic and posting it on Instagram and then claiming he didn't know the sight of his naked ass would offend non-lesbians.

Was any of his performance authentic? Blind Gossip gives us insight: "Nope. He PLANNED to break down at the end of his appearance!" That makes me madder than a straight man who realizes that he wanked off to Bieber's butt. And there's more,  "There is one thing that his team did not do. To preserve the element of surprise, they didn’t tell producers what was going to happen." I hope no one bought this piled of dog doo.

The Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus Feud Was Staged

Publicists set up hot young couples all the time in order to help promote a movie. Think Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Apparently now they are taking the same concept and using it for feuds. Is nothing in Hollyweird authentic? If I find out the Katy Perry/Taylor Swift feud isn't real, well then I will question the very existence of chocolate ice cream. Apparently the Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj feud that 'exploded' on Sunday at the VMAs is faker than Kathy Griffin's face.

Originally producers of the VMAs wanted Nikki and Taylor to be the ones in the feud. However Taylor's people were like "Nah, we're good with the Katy Perry girl fight thanks though." So Miley stepped up and agreed to get into a faux feud with Nicki. We all know that this ends with Nicki and Miley remaking the classic song 'The Boy is Mine', right? I mean how else would this feud end?

So Blind Gossip gives the details of how it was all supposed to go down. They say that Taylor "...was NOT going to be the target of any controversies. That’s why the rapper and the pop star wound up doing a collaboration… and the host was set up as the proxy target instead. All planned." Again I reiterate that this faux feud ends with them doing a duet together. Just like Taylor and Nicki did to open the VMAs Sunday. Their performance is below:

Picture Of The Day: Zac Efron is Team Horny

Is David Beckham Gearing Up For A Divorce?

Could my future ex-husband really be on the market soon? By all accounts David and Victoria Beckham are one of the most happily married in the entertainment industry. Yet divorce rumors are circulating around them like I circle Matthew Stafford (he's the quarterback for the Detroit Lions). Are they heading for a divorce? A trusted source indicates that yes they are.

Last week David Beckham was seen out with his kids, sans Posh Spice. This of course led to the current rumors of divorce. Now that is enough to give me hope that the retired soccer player will open his eyes and realize that me and Matt are nothing more than smoke and mirrors, I'm really waiting for him. Our friends over at Blind Gossip say that I shouldn't give up hope that he will see through my charade. Apparently Drake and Serena are better at the fake relationship game than I am. Anyways, BG reveals this: "While they appear to be a united team in front of the camera, they spend practically no time together in private. We don’t know exactly when they will announce their split… but it is coming!" And I am readying myself for this event!!!

The summer of break ups has been harsh but really fair. I mean when David Beckham is single, how can it be considered anything but a positive thing?

Hunk Of The Week: Ben Cohen

Drake And Serena Are A Fake Couple

Yes I know what you're thinking "aren't all Hollywood couples fake?" To which I would reply, hush because if people realize this, then I have nothing to write about and then my blog and chances at writing for The Enquirer go away. Let's get back to Drake and Serena Williams lie telling about liking one another in the same way that I like Jussie Smollett.

According to Hollywood Street King, both Drake and Serena like people of the same sex. With Drake, I had always hoped that he was a friend of Elton. I mean that body, that voice, he might give Jussie a run for his money as the #1 boo. And Serena, well if she's a lesbian I know quite a few girls that would line up to be with her. I mean seriously, if one more lesbian asks me if Serena is really gay and to pass their number on to her, I will scream so loud that it will make Ellen dance.

Ok so I was just told that Ellen always dances, but let's just focus on the gossip here. An industry insider tells HSK, "She’s a lesbian and he’s a bisexual dude who f*cks instagram h*es & BBWs to look like he’s a stud but he’s really a f*g." I do not agree with the F word in their statement but the over all the statement makes sense. Drake's management team is too controlling of his image and they probably make him screw those girls or at least pretend to. We all know that he really wants to jump on me, er I mean some famous dude.... but really me. 

Nothing bad would happen if either of them came out. After all look at Ellen/Chris Colfer/Matt Bomer/Jussie/Neil Patrick Harris, the list could go on and on. Being gay has not hurt any of their careers. In fact some of them are seeing the best times in their careers. Come out Drake and my number is (Number Deleted due to stalkers and stuff).

Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg In Power Struggle

Another season of The View will be debuting soon, but it is the same old storyline that is playing out in the media. Producers bring in new (or returning) co-hosts and then there is a problem with them and Whoopi Goldberg. Last year around this time, the story was the feud between Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi, and the fight for the moderator's chair. This time the rehashed story stars Joy Behar and Whoopi but with a little twist in there.

If you read the gossip blogs regularly like I do, then you know that Whoopi is basically done with this travesty of a show. However she wants to keep her nice little paycheck coming in, so she shows up everyday and does her thing. When Joy was first approached about coming back, she wanted the moderator's chair for herself but producers knew that Whoopi would never go for that. Joy walked away from the table but then producers had a grand idea: Live shows on Fridays. Whoopi balked and threatened to enforced a clause in her contract that said she didn't have to work on Fridays. Then she turned to new co-hosts Raven Symone and Michelle Collins to use the same reason for not working on Fridays. They declined since they are the new girls on the block and don't want to piss off the producers. Enter Joy and a promise that she would be the moderator on Fridays. Whoopi is not happy about this, though there doesn't seem to be much she can do about it.

Also adding fuel to this feud is the fact that Whoopi has pretty much dictated what segments would be done and what topics would be covered in Hot Topics. However Joy is used to everything being more democratic and every co-host having a say. This seems to be an issue that will divide the other co-hosts during this season. However unlike last year, I don't see Joy quitting like Rosie O did. That means we have at least 9 months of behind the scenes feud stories ahead of us.

For those wondering, I do think there will be a season 20. However I think that will be announced as the last season. Nothing that ABC has done so far has invigorated the show the way Rosie did during her first tenure. What they should do is bring back the greatest co-hosts from over the years to host the show. 

Will There Be Season Two of I Am Cait?

Yes I am officially back from my self imposed hiatus. And I figured what better way to kick off the new season than with what I hope will become the standard for articles on GG going forward. And speaking of new seasons, fans of Caitlyn Jenner are wondering if there will be a season 2 of her reality show, I am Cait. Yes that was a horrible segue but let's just move past that alright. Anyways the conversation has turned into a debate about whether Caitlyn will get another season or not.

On the one hand the premiere numbers were phenomenal. 2.7 million people tuned in to watch the program and witness history in the making. But then something happened along the way, the numbers kept dropping and dropping. Headlines everywhere screamed at what a failure the show is and that without ex-wife Kris, Caitlyn would not have an entertainment career. Even Caitlyn's best friend isn't sure what is going on with the future of the show. Jenny Boylan (Cait's BFF) says "I'd be shocked if there wasn't a season 2, but then nothing shocks me anymore."  So what's the real story?

Networks don't make judgements on series based on Live and Same Day ratings anymore. While that is the coveted number, especially for advertisers, that is not the full story of whether or not the show is successful. Now they take into account DVRs, web views, and Ondemand numbers to see if people are watching the show and if it will be profitable. I am going to go out on a limb and say that no there won't be a season 2 of I am Cait. The social media buzz isn't there and that is what usually indicates that a show is making waves with viewers, think Pretty Little Liars or Scandal. Does this mean that Caitlyn won't have a career in Hollywood? No but it does mean that she needs to think about the type of show that she wants to do.

And Josh Duggar Confesses To Cheating

Not that there was any doubt about this but... Here is Josh's full confession:

I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.

I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.

As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.

I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.

Josh Duggar

Donald Trump Is Delusional

There are many things that can be said about Donald Trump. Republican Frontrunner, Multi-Billionaire, Game Changer. These are things that are true and can be factually proven without a doubt. You could also make fun of his hair and his limited vocabulary, but really those are more opinion than fact. Another fact that I think we can all agree on is that Donald Trump is no Channing Tatum, the thing that makes him any sort of attractive is his bank account.

During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, the journalist asked Trump who should play him in the inevitable movie about this upcoming election. The answer that The Donald gave not only made me physically ill but makes no sense in the real world. Here is what he said, "Somebody really, really handsome. That's the only thing that matters. I don't care if he can act well. He's got to be really, really good-looking. OK?" There goes The Great Pumpkin's (from the Charlie Brown) chance to have a comeback and an Emmy nomination. So selfish Donald! Won't somebody think of The Great Pumpkin?!

I kid! Though I did think it would be kind of cool is Rosie O'Donnell played Trump in the movie. Think of the accolades that she would get and of course she had talent. Of course none of that matters to Trump, he just cares about what the person looks like. Normally I would expect a slew of my words were taken out of context press releases but since that isn't Trump's style, we can sit back and enjoy this. 

Who do you think should play Donald in the movie?

Josh Duggar Had An Ashley Madison Account and The Internet is Happy about It

Did you miss me Gossipers? I wasn't on some protracted vacation or in rehab. I've been working on fiction and planning a major reboot of GG. However some stories are just too good to pass up on. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorcing is so passe. Anything that comes out of Donald Trump's mouth is gold but almost as overexposed as the Kardashians. But Josh Duggar having 2 different accounts on Ashley Madison, well now that is enough to make me put off the reboot.

So what was Josh_The_Man aka Ready4ThisDC aka Duggar looking for. Well apparently nothing too extreme, just some hand holding and cuddling. According to the info obtained from the Ashely Madison information dump, this is what he wanted: “Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk.” Basically things that every 20 year old girl wants from her boyfriend. Is Josh Duggar really a sorority girl looking for her frat boy?

Even better than the story itself though, is the reaction it has elicited from commenters around the web. One poster from DListed. Jezza, says "Hey, Michelle and Jim Bob - This is what happens when you turn a vajayjay into a pez dispenser for babies and let the kids raise each other!" And that is one of the nicest comments around, There were a ton of "this is my Christmas" and my personal favorite, which I cannot find at the moment, "This is better than Empire and Scandal combined. Shonda Rhimes better put a show like this into production fast!" Unlike when the first scandal about Josh molesting his sisters and a babysitter, I have not seen one post defending the poor "Teddy Bear in bed." 

What do you think of the newest scandal surrounding Josh Duggar?

Breaking: States Cannot Ban Same Sex Marriage

Happy day! The Supreme Court has issued it's ruling on marriage equality and they have voted in favor of love. In a 5-4 vote the nation's highest court has effectively struck down the bans on same sex marriage. 

This is a breaking story and I will update with more information as it becomes available

The Real Reason For The Savage Garden Split

Whenever an uber successful band splits, I think we all hope for some kind of dramatic reason for it. Like you know one band member slept with anothers partner or they were lovers and there was a nasty fight, where one left the hotel room and hooked up with a groupie. That doesn't seem to be the case with Savage Garden though. Instead it's a boring reason of them just growing apart and wanting different things.

Last week the Duo of Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones, better known as Savage Garden released a new CD called The Singles. Yea I know I wish they would put out new music too but it's not going to happen. The most that we can hope for right now is a musical based on their music, and since Darren Hayes is married to a writer maybe it will happen. Of course i could always do it too... I would love to do it. I'm working on it right now. Anyways. Darren was doing press for the new CD and finally revealed what happened. In his own words, “The thing with a band is it really is a marriage,” Hayes says. “In our case we had a marriage that ended in divorce. People don’t get married by accident and they don’t get divorced by accident. There are reasons why musical relationships are magical and those same reasons are sometimes why they can’t last. I’ve softened a lot to the (re-formation) question nowadays. I take it as a huge compliment when people ask if we’ll get back together. What they are really saying is you changed my life. I have wonderful memories associated with what you did back then. We’ve also been lucky in that people also respect it ended for a reason. You’d no sooner ask a couple who broke up to get back together just because you liked going to the movies with them." It's like a part of the 90's died and there is no hope of getting them back. 

Thankfully though, we still have the music that they did make while they were together. Daniel has admitted that he left the band because he didn't want the fame that was attached to being part of one of the most successful groups ever. And just because I'm a sap and want to take you all down memory lane, here is the video for "I want you".

Tom From Myspace Is A Photographer Now

Tom Anderson was everyone's first friend on Myspace. At one time he was probably the most well known social media guy around, but then Facebook happened and nobody remembered poor Tom. Well I can't exactly say that he's poor, according to various sites he's worth anywhere from $50 million to $60 million. Now instead of working on social media, he has taken up his first passion of photography.

Yesterday news leaked out that Tom posted a selfie of himself on his instagram page. The internet blew up about how good he looks, and man look at that pic. He sure is handsome, and I would just like to let him know that I am single if he wants to hook up. He can take pictures and I can write, it's the perfect scenario. Can you all imagine if Tom and I got married? I mean it would be perfection. I'm sure that some gold digger, who isn't me, already got their claws into him.
