Eclipse Is Already Breaking Records

It hasn't even bet a full 24 hours since The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was released, but records are already being broken! First, the film is estimated at grossing $30 million from midnight screenings alone, and word is, that $30 million is an understatement! The film is also the widest released film, being shown in 4,416 theaters. The previous film to hold that record was Iron Man 2. Now, this isn't a record, but while most reviews were half negative, half positive, the New York Times praised the film by saying it was a "more robustly entertaining film than either of its predecessors. That's not a bad first 24 hours!

Paranormal Activity 2 Official Trailer!

Check out the just released, official trailer for Paranormal Activity 2 !I saw the first one and I cannot say how much I loved it. It was definitely one of my favorite films of all time. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous about the second one though. They had something so great and unique with the first one that I feel they should've left it at that. Sequels tend to ruin a movie most of the time. I guess we'll have to wait and see! Either way, I know I'll definitely be checking out Paranormal Activity 2.

Stephenie Meyer's "Burned Out"

I'm sorry to inform you, but all you Twilight fans may have to wait some time before reading Midnight Sun. Why is this you ask? Well, in a recent interview with Stephenie Meyer she said "I'm really burned out on vampires...And I don't want to right it (Midnight Sun),badly. So I want to wait until I'm excited about the material again, and I'm excited about Edward, and that it's something that's motivating. I mean, I guess it had to happen eventually. Let's just hope that she chooses to resume writing soon.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Trailer

It's finally here!

Let me know what you think. Are you going to be there at midnight to see the first screening?

Chris Brown's BET Performance

I'm sure by now, most of you have seen Chris Brown's tribute to Michael Jackson at the BET awards. If not, I posted it above for you. Let me first say, that the dance tribute at the beginning was amazing, and the little bit of singing that Chris Brown did at the start of the tribute, reminded me of the old Chris, before auto-tune became his best friend. At the end, when Chris Brown started to break down on stage I felt like it was sincere. I've been hearing a lot of comments from people saying that it was all a PR stunt, but I honestly believe that everything from Michael Jackson being his greatest influence, to how much the song choice of "Man in the Mirror" related to his life, caused him to fall to the ground and cry. What do you think? PR Stunt or act of sincerity?

BRB

Hey everyone! I just wanted to inform you that I'm going to be on a short hiatus due to a bunch of different things. Don't expect me to be missing for a month or anything crazy like that. I'll probably only be gone until Monday, but I still wanted to let you know. There was a huge storm around my neighborhood and I don't have power. Thanks for being patient!

Charice Official Joins Glee

If you remember back to a month ago, I posted that Filipino pop star Charice Pempengco was in talks with the director of Glee, to join the series. It is now confirmed that the 18-year-old singing sensation will join the cast of Glee as a guest star. She will play an exchange student with an amazing voice. This girl is really making a name for herself and she definitely has the voice to back up!

Toy Story 3

Alright, admit it. How many of you went back to your childhood this weekend and ran to see Toy Story 3? If you did, you helped make Toy Story 3 the second biggest opening animated film ever. Among all movies, it ranked 10. The Disney/Pixar film mad an estimated $109 million this weekend, and from what many reviews are saying, it earned every penny. Unfortunately, I have not yet seen the film but I promise you will be going soon. From what I hear, the film is amazing and even evokes some deep emotions from the viewers. If you saw the film, let me know what you think!

School's Out For Summer!

Just thought I'd give everyone a quick update! Well, today was my last day of my Sophomore year (and the last day of my finals)! I think I did pretty good on all of my finals. I know I aced my Spanish final, Honors Lit was pretty easy, and I'm hoping I did good on geometry and bio. Overall, this was a great year. I learned so much about myself, my real friends, and so much more. Through all the drama and school work that I've put up with this year I can honestly say that this year has shaped me into a better person. By the way, in case you're wondering I'm on the far left in the picture, my friend Nicole is in the middle, and my friend Dan is on the right in orange. I'm just glad that I had a great year and made some great friends. Now I'm ready to enjoy my summer, and work incredibly hard on my website and PR. Get ready, because this summer is all mine!

Alice Tan Ridley

Check out the amazing performance by Oscar nominated actress Gabby Sidibe's mother, Alice Tan Ridley. At first, I thought that this was just going to be someone trying to shine off of their daughter's fame, but I was so wrong. Alice Ridley is amazing! She has so much raw, natural talent and I think it's great that she isn't giving up on her dream. Alice Ridley stated that her "...name isn't on Gabby's paychecks", and that she still has to provide for her family. What an inspiring story! She really does have a great voice as well.

True Blood Season Three

Well, did you watch!? I hope you saw the season premier of True Blood season three. Although I wasn't completely blown away with the episode, it was still a great way to start the season. I don't want to give too much away because I'm sure there are people who have not yet seen it. All I want to say is that I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of this season. I like how they chose to make the werewolves regular wolves, rather than using cheesy CGI effects to make a human-like creature. I can't wait till Sunday!

Summer 2010 is approaching. School's almost out, and that means that my cousin Karelie and I will be going to the Jersey Shore soon. We went today to find a place to stay and also, to give you guys a preview of what's going to go down. Some of you may know, and some of you may not know, but there will be a Jersey Shore: Jay Swag Edition, coming sometime in July. I'll be at the shore with Karelie for a week and we are going to record our time there and give you updates on what we are doing. Today was our first day, so we're going to give you a little taste of what to expect come July. Today we reserved our shore house. We also visited the original "Jersey Shore" house and we even saw Mike "The Situation." We only spent a few hours at the shore, but we wanted to give you guys a little preview of what to expect when we post our version. Make sure you check back sometime after July 25th for the premier of "The Jersey Shore: Jay Swag Edition."

Rap Chick Nicki Minaj is being sued over a rented Lamborghini. According to sources, Minaj rented the pink Lambo for her Massive Attack music video at the rate of $1,750 a day, however the car was damaged and Minaj now owes $11,589. On top of all of this, she also missed three days of pay, which makes her total bill a little over $12,000. Oh Nicki...what are we going to do with you. I'm sure all you have to do is sign the papers. $12,000 is pocket change for you!

Sean Garrett Interview



1. What made you want to transition from being a writer and producer, to an artist in the rap industry?
"Well I was an Artist before I even started anything else, and success just superseded me and my expectations was as an artist first, and I was an artist when I wrote 'Yeah.' I just happened to have another ability which is writing and producing music for other people as well. If there's any industry that would understand me it's this industry because I'm hustling my talents and I'm fortunate enough to have more than one talent. I just started writing my own records so people came to me, you know? They heard my stuff and were like 'wow, this is hot as hell, can you write some for me?'"
2. Who are some artists that you collaborated with in your upcoming mix tape?
"Young Gotti, Bun B., Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Tiga Tiga, Young Money."
3. Who are some of your biggest inspiriations and have you met any of them?
"Jay Z from a business perspective and he named me Sean The Pen, Puffy who I've worked with on his album, Lionel Richie I took as a mentor and have been fortunate enough to meet him several times. Baby Face and LA Reid, the Neptunes, just to name a few. These people really have a lot of respect for what I do and so I can't be a happier person just to be on these people's lines."
4. You are a well known and respected writer, producer, and artist. Are there any other fields that you wish to venture in? If so, what are they?
"My branding game -- definitely coming up really strong right now, my next phase after being a household name is doing movies/acting."
5. What was it like working with international artists like BoA, and who are some other international superstars you would enjoy working with?
"I had a blast with Enrique Iglesias - He's a good friend of mine and an international superstar I went on tour with him, 'it was phenomenal,' pussycat dolls international was great. I'm going to Europe with my new publishing deal and getting ready to work with so much more internationally and I'm really just happy that my new company associates around the world and I'll be working with artists all over the world with people who really know my talent worldwide. The fact that I'm an artist and that I'm going to be jumping on a bunch of different records around the world is great."
6. What can we expect from The Inkwell?
"A great album, not stuff you expect to hear from a mix-tape, it's an actual full blown album. I'm giving my fans some brand new music. 'Nothing cheap about we doin over here," the next single is just so big that we wanted to give the album time to get itself to its full potential, its gunna be dropped next week."
7. Besides The Inkwell, are you working on any other current projects?
"Rihanna's album, Jamie Foxx's album, Gucci Mane's album, Lloyd Banks, a lot of pop music, Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls, just finished up Usher's album which has the first number 1 record off the album "Papers," working with Mario..pretty much just everybody."
8. Of all the songs you have written and produced, what song are you most proud of?
"They all mean something different. They bring back tears, blood, sweat, since they all mean something different, it's unfair to pick one song because it's just a beautiful thing to have the ability to share my life with the world through my music. 15 years from now I'll probably cry because so much goes into what I do every day, all my songs help me to really, really, appreciate life, and to be able to walk out and be healthy and do these types of things, to be able to document it in music makes me equally proud of all my songs."

Well that's it! I hope you all enjoyed my interview with the amazing and talented Sean Garrett. This guy definitely has his goals in line and knows what to do to achieve them. I want to thank him for taking the time to answer the questions. Check back sometime next month for another celebrity interview!

Chace Crawford Arrested

Gossip Girl actor, Chace Crawford, was arrested a little after midnight this morning for possession of pot. Apparently, Crawford was in a car with his friend in Plano, Texas, when he was busted by the cops for having a under 2 ounces of pot in his car. Since the crime is just a misdemeanor, the maximum sentence is 6 months. Of course, he's out on bail. Check out the mugshot and get a good laugh!

Half Of My Heart

Above is John Mayer's incredibly boring video for his newest single Half of My Heart > I'm just not a fan of the song, or the video at all. I see nothing special about the video that makes me want to watch it after the first 45 seconds. Let me know what you think.
