Taylor Swift Returns From Asia

Taylor Swift recently returned from Asia where she embarked on her world tour. She has yet to comment on Adam Young's Valentine song to Taylor, but in true Taylor Swift fashion, she has put together a vlog of her Asian trip to share with her fans.

What Would You Do (nostalgia)

It seems more and more of my time is spent in nostalgia. I know I'm not alone in saying this, but TV played a major role in my childhood. Actually, when I think about all the shows I loved, I wonder if I did anything other than watch TV as a child. Seriously, how did I watch so many shows? Maybe that's why I'm so pale...

Welp, here is a recent photo of Marc Summers taken from Seth Green's Twitter. I hope you spend the next couple hours googling Marc Summers and searching for videos of old episodes of Double Dare and What Would You Do?

Liam Neeson Talks Natasha Richardson's Death

I'm totally taking the lazy way out of post by just linking to posts, but they are posts I wrote so whatevs, you best respect!

With Unknown now in theatres, Liam Neeson took a break from his busy filming schedule in order to promote his newest project. Really, he just took a break to promote himself. That is what celebs do, they promote themselves and therefore any project is promoted by default. It's cool though because 10 times out of 10 we aren't really interested in the project, just the celeb.

In a recent interview with Esquire Liam Neeson opened up about his wife Natasha Richardson's death that shocked many just two years ago. That was a sad, sad day. Read more about how Liam Neeson is running away from Natasha Richardson's death

As a sidenote, I know Natasha Richardson did a million very noteworthy projects, but I will always remember her as the mom from the Lindsay Lohan remake of The Parent Trap. And what do you think she would say about Hallie/Annie today?

Twitter Round Up: Miley Cyrus Parties With Adam Lambert

For the record, Miley Cyrus is my least favorite of the super-3 Disney tweens (I'm totally coining that phrase). However, she is always out and about doing something with someone so I can't help but post her business all up on here.

Here is Miley having fun with Mr. Adam Lambert at some event I know nothing about, but thanks to Twitter we can all pretend like it was some wild Hollywood party and pass the personal photo off as one of our own. "Oh yeah! Adam, Miley and I totally rocked that party, see this photo I took at the party? It's totally legit, we are like BFFs!"

But wait, there is more!!
Lindsay Lohan defends herself once again, John Stamos returns to Glee, Adam Lambert has some fun with Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift rock Asia.

Chloe Savigny and Chloe Savigny

Scusi, I've been investing my time so much to reading gossip I've hardly had time to write anything. Ok, so that's not entirely true, but whatevs foo' I'm trying, ok?

Any Big Love fans, yes? no? Yeah, me neither but that's only because I have never seen an episode. I'm sure if I watched it I'd become consumed by it so it's probably best I stay away, at least until I finally finish Veronica Mars. I've gots to close that book before I open a new one.

So, back to Big Love. Well, actually, here is a fabulous post about Chloe Savigny from Big Love. I say it's fabulous only because I wrote it, and therefore it is obvi fabulous. So check it out here, Chloe Savigny Discusses Lizzie Borden Mini-Series...

After you read the article, you should totally check out the Chloe Savigny drag queen.

In Review: Glee does Bieber

Tonights episode of Glee was about the same as last week, only insert Justin Bieber songs. I'm starting to get a little tired of seeing the same thing unfold every show.

-Brittany continues to get dumber. I seriously don't understand how this character gets out of bed in the morning by herself.
-Sue attempts new depths of evil and leaves me questioning how is she not in jail after all the physical abuse she throws at students? Seriously, it is now routine for her to slam students into lockers, Ohio must have some really leinant laws on how to treat a student.
-Once again, Santana can't find her own guy so she goes after someone else's boyfriend.
-Meanwhile Quinn can't decide who she wants as a boyfriend so she strings Finn along on the side while foolish Sam stands by idly believing Quinn is better than she is.
Let's see, what else...
-Puck struggles to swoon Lauren.
-Lauren pretends she doesn't like Puck and acts tough even though the camera close ups of her while he sings tell another story.
-Oh yeah, and Mike dances while everyone else sings.

Overall the episode was kind of blah. I wasn't even that impressed with the song choice. I liked seeing Emma, even if for just a short scene. She was my favorite character in season one. In spite of her OCD she was and continues to be the most normal and level-headed character on this show. I wish they hadn't married her off to hot dentist John Stamos. In my opinion, killing the Will and Emma storyline has killed the show. All the students are just too annoying and self-centered to really bring any depth to the show.

Does anyone else feel like each episode starts at the same place? Rather than picking up where the last show ended, each episode is the same. Kurt is really the only character on the show now with any substance and he doesn't get the screen time he deserves.

Oh Glee, how I once loved you so...

The actors do seem pretty fun and friendly, though. Above they are pictured having a picnic in January together on set.

Taylor Swift and Owl City's Adam Enchant Eachother

Taylor Swift no longer names names when it comes to song muses; however, she does leave subtle hints for the guy. It was speculated that Adam Young of Owl City was the subject of the song 'Enchanted' off Taylor Swift's album 'Speak Now' and Adam has just about confirmed those rumors by writing a song to Taylor Swift.

In a blog post on Owl City's website, Adam writes:

"I decided to record something for you -- as sort of a 'reply' to the breathtaking song on your current record. This is what I wanted so badly to tell you in person but could never quite put into words."

Adam goes on to pour out some lovely compliements including: "You're an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe." And then closes his letter to Taylor by quoting her own song "I was enchanted to meet you too."

The song mimics Taylor's original, but includes some Taylor inspired lyrics like: "You were all of my dreams come true / and I just wish you knew / Taylor I was so in love with you."

Umm...adorable much?! Taylor is currently with her band (pictured above in Tokyo) on her Asain Tour, but I hope we see these two together when she gets back, how cute would that be?

To hear the song and read the full message to Taylor check out the Owl City site, here.
The new Owl City album is scheduled for release May 24, what a great way to celebrate my quarter-century.

Celebs and their kids looking adorable: James Van Der Beek

James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly Brook welcomed their first child in September and since then JVDB's Twitter page has been sprinkled with loving mentions of his daughter. Additionally, adorable pictures have surfaced of the two (including the one above from Kimberly's Twitter) and I'm reminded of all the reasons why I love Dawson Leery. Guys who talk endlessly of their new child are so hot.

For your additional enjoyment, here is a Funny or Die video JVDB made earlier this year that pokes fun at Dawson Leery and how that caring and sensitive, boy next door set new standards for how a boyfriend is expected to be.

an early Valentine's Day gift from Hanson

Every chance I get, I like to share some Hanson love. Here is a video from MTV Clutch in which Hanson offers some advice on love:

Firstly, I want you all to stop thinking of Mmmbop everytime you read the name or see the guys of Hanson. While that catchy little tune did shoot them to stardom in 1997, they actually have MORE songs. More songs, and BETTER songs. Case in point:

Secondly, stop thinking to yourself (or blurting outloud) "Ohhh...I didn't know they got back together." Hanson never fell apart. They have been consistently making music since 1997.

Lastly, didn't they grow up to be some good looking lads?

Kristen Bell makes Never Say Never look cool

Not gonna lie, I'm kind of interested in seeing Justin Bieber's movie Never Say Never. At first I wanted to start that statement with "I'm ashamed to admit..." but then I remembered that I don't have any beef with the Biebs. He is really talented and has a good time making fun of himself.

Though the hair and the phrase "bieber fever" make me want to throw bricks at people, I otherwise am quite fine with this Bieber trend.

And, if Kristen Bell can wave her Bieber glow stick proudly, than so can I.

Super Bowl XLV

Packers AARON RODGERS FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a wonderful game, and to think that I kept hearing people talk about how it was going to be a runaway win for the Steelers. I imagine this feeling of victory is similar to the feeling I might have felt in 2004 if Cal had won the Holiday Bowl. Nah, this feeling of victory is the feeling I would have experienced had we gone to the Rose Bowl that year and won...le sigh.

While the game was great, I didn't enjoy the commercials. This was the first year I watched the Super Bowl for football and not commercials, and I was not really impressed with the commercials this year. The commercial with Joan Rivers was creepy, I'm not impressed with the cars nor the phones being advertised, and the beer commercials are clearly for a different demographic. I did like the Stella Artois: Crying Jean commercial, and I think the VW commercial with little boy Darth Vader is adorable, but otherwise I guess I missed the good ones.

Which was your favorite commercial? If you missed any, you can check them out on Hulu.

Now for some celebrity, did you all catch Christina Aguilera butcher the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLV? If you didn't, or if you care to re-watch it, here you go:

Aaron Carter and Demi Lovato ?


Back in January Aaron Carter entered a rehab facility for "spiritual" reasons. I won't knock him for rehab, I think it's a bold step for someone to seek help. I will, however, laugh uncontrollably at the idea of him and Demi Lovato. And then, I will cry a little when I remember that 10 years ago I would have given anything to be with him. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy enough these days to read his tweets on occasion and to hum his songs more often than I care to admit, but after the whole Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan scandal I was put off by his bad-boy ways. It is for this reason that I do not approve of Daaron.

Fret not, for Daaron is but a young man's fantasy. Aaron Carter recently took to his Twitter account to announce his current interest in recent rehab-graduate, Demi Lovato, describing her as "freaking smoking hott!!." Damn, two -t's and two -!, this boy is serrious!!He's willing to wait quite some time for her to come around, too. "Don't think my interest with Demi Lovato is gonna end anytime soon! I'm patient (definition) capable of accepting delay with equanimity." That's good, especially since he tweeted just two days ago that he wanted to remain single for a while.

What do you think of an Aaron and Demi match?

To be fair, Demi did date Trace Cyrus, so maybe Aaron has a shot. I'm not sure anyone can tame a player, except the player himself, but I'll let Aaron go ahead and dream. We are all entitled to our dreams. After all, I wouldn't want anyone to tell me I can't be with Lee Pace.
