ABC cancels Adam Lambert concert

(Via Live Feed)


ABC has canceled a performance by Adam Lambert scheduled for Wednesday's "Good Morning America."

With ABC reportedly receiving at least 1,500 complaints due to Lambert's performance on Sunday's American Music Awards telecast, the network has decided against letting the "American Idol" finalist perform a second time.

“Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning," a "Good Morning America" spokesperson said in a statement.

Too early for simulated man-on-man fellatio, you mean? Like, perhaps ABC would be okay airing that around 3 p.m. or so?

Dirty Money - "Love Comes Down" (Remix) feat Jim Jones, Fabolous & Red Cafe

2009 American Music Awards Performaces: Janet Goes Baggy, Jennifer Falls and Taylor Swift Wins 5 Awards?!?!

On Sunday night, ABC aired the American Music Awards.

Back in the day, Dick Clark's award show was the place to be, where artists who didn't get their due at the Grammy's were recognized for rheir musical achievements.

Now it seems like the AMA's is merely a place to promote new songs.

There were plenty of performances at the AMA's, but no real shocks, (except for maybe Jennifer Lopez briefly falling down briefly during her performance.

The biggest shock of the night would probably be that Taylor Swift won five awards, (which included "Artist of The Year").

Although a still exiled Kanye West was wrong for snatching the mic from her at the MTV Awards, his analysis might not be that far off.

Talor Swift seems like sweet girl, but they fact the music consumers are being sold that she's the new face of country music (where's my Loretta Lynn's , Tammy Wynette's and Dixie Chicks) and that she had a bigger music impact this year than Lady GaGa, The Black Eyed Peas or even a deceased Michael Jackson is a joke.

As Wynona Judd told USA Today after Taylor Swift won "Entertainer of the Year" award at the recent the Country Music Awards, " It's too much too soon."

Very true Wynona, too bad you had to apologize like Kanye West on your website a few days later.

As great as these numbers are, I don't know if the "New Moon" will make as much as the "Dark Knight" long term, but these numbers are still grrat.

Oprah Winfrey Tears up While Annoucing The End ofHer Show

"Here is the real reason: I love this show, this show has been my life, and I love it enough to know when it's time to say goodbye," Oprah says in the below video of her announcement. "Twenty five years? It's the perfect number, it feels right in my bones and it feels right in my spirit."

Real Life: African-American Male Unemployment

The unemployment rate for all African-Americans is about 50 percent higher than the nation as a whole — and even higher for African-American males.

The country's spiraling unemployment rate is taking a particular toll on men as the recession continues to roil male-dominated industries, such as manufacturing and construction.

This "he-cession," as it's sometimes called, has hit African-American men especially hard, increasing their unemployment rate to more than 17 percent last month.


Shocker! 'New Moon' beats 'Dark Knight's' Midnight record

(Via Hitflix)
No one expected "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" to disappoint at the box office, but even Summit Entertainment has to be surprised by the massive opening the sequel garnered from midnight shows across the country. Distributors are still submitting their grosses but sources tell HitFix "New Moon" has set a new record and may have made as much as $25 million from its midnight launch.

To compare, previous record holder "The Dark Knight" made $18.4 million in over 3,000 theaters....

Entertainment Weekly Asks: Who (or what) is your Entertainer of the Decade?

"Who hs been more dominte this decade, Will Smith or Beyonce? "'s Popwatch recently asked the question:

There are so many choices, but I told EW the husband and wife team of
Jay-Z and Beyonce has dominated this decade musically from start to finish.

However they are not the only contenders.

Will Smith replaced Tom Cruise this decade' biggest film star.
TV wise it could be The Soprano's, but what about American Idol?
Sure its a reality show, but their success
on TV and in the music industry
can not be ignored.

But its so hard to choose.
There's the Sopranos, The Wire, Kanye West, U2, The Ipod , Britney Spears,
The Wire, Howard Stern moving to Sirius XM,
the rise of Fox News and web 2.0,
the mega success of Johnny Depp, Peter Jackson, J.K. Rowling...whew!

So who (or what) is your "Entertainer of the Decade"?

Video of the Year! Beyoncé - Video Phone (Extended Remix) (feat. Lady GaGa)

I think I found my video of the year!

Beyonce drops another video off her "I Am Sasha Fierce" album, this time teaming up with dance queen Lady Gaga and director Hype Williams for the remix of "Video Phone".

In this fantasy laden video, Beyonce never looked or moved better in this brightly colored masterpiece and Lady GaGa continues to endear herself with urban audiences after teaming up with Wale and having her song "Poker Face" sampled on a track by Kid Cudi, Common and Kanye West.

Director Hype Williams outdoes himself, by casting Beyonce and Lady GaGa in Quentin Tarntino inspired clip, where chicks with gun play, booty shaking and slick choreography rules supreme, (inspirations of Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" 'Kill Bill" and "Natural Born Killers" flows throughout).

Radio Host Tom Joyner said that some bloggers are upset that a married Beyonce Knowles is booty shaking in the video. Really? That sounds like jealousy to me.

The only person who probably be upset is her husband Jay-Z, but the last time I checked, I don't think Hov minds.

Why should he?

Mr. Carter still has the hottest chick in the game.

Although the cover looks like cover from National "ampoon cover it's actually a pictorial Palin did for "Runner's World" magazine in August 2009, right after John Mccain made her his VP candidate.

Do you think the Newsweek cover is sexist and/or belittles her?

In its first week on TBS, the high-energy late-night series LOPEZ TONIGHT averaged more than 1.6 million viewers and outdelivered the competition among highly coveted young adults.

Why is Sirius XM Still Charging My Canceled Account?

I use to love Sirius XM.

I use to love listening to Howard Stern, the old school Hip Hop channel Backspin, Jamie Foxx's Foxxhole radio, etc. But once the recession, I had to cancel my beloved Sirius XM.

I thought everything was cool, it wasn't .

Three months ago, I was checking my bank statement, when I saw a Sirius XM charge.

I called them, asked to speak to the manager and it was eventually resolved.

Flash forward to November 12, 2009 and it happened again.
I was checking my bank statement and that it was, another Sirius XM charge, (the kicker is two weeks ago, Sirius XM sent me an to come back. The deal was decent, But I didn't do it).

If this has ever happened to you , I like to hear your story. Go to my Facebook fan page: Sirius XM Charged My Cancelled Subscription and tell me if you ever had a problem with Sirius XM.
Maybe we can do something to stop Sirius XM from doing this to their customers.

Fox cancels Eliza Dushku/Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse"

To paraphrase Chris Rock in "Boomerang",
first they cancelled "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", now this.

(via Entertainment Weekly)

This has been a busy week for cancellations. The latest addition to the TV graveyard: Dollhouse.

According to multiple insiders, Fox has informed Joss Whedon that it will not be ordering additional installments of his low-rated drama beyond the current 13-episode order. On the bright side, the network still plans to burn off the remaining unaired episodes beginning in December. Hey, it’s something.

Dollhouse has been averaging a mere 3 million viewers this season. Last season — when fan support, together with significant budget cuts, helped it to get an odds-defying second-year pickup — the show averaged 4.7 million.

Bottom line: Dollhouse is lucky it ever saw a second season. Remember that when you’re posting your eulogies below.

One thing I love about my blog is that I cover all things pop culture, including soap operas.

Since Jonathan Jackson returned to play Lucky Spencer on General Hospital, the general consensus from fans is that feels like Jackson never left, (Jackson left the role in 1993).

In yesterday's GH finale, Lukcy's longtime love Elizabeth (Rebbecca Herbst) tells him that she has been sleeping his half brother Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher).

As you can imagine, Lucky doesn't take the news to well and when Nikolas show up, Lucky shoots him.

Mess in Browns Town :Kokinis lost power struggle with Mangini

"Kogini/Mankinis era over after only 8 months"

What started out as a dream turned into a nightmare for Browns GM George Konkinis, who was fired from the Cleveland Browns earlier, even though Browns owner Randy Lerner told Peter King that Konkinis was not fired, ( if this is case, why was he escorted out of the Browns facility on Monday or better yet, where is he??)

According to Don banks of, when Browns dictator, err coach Eric Mangini swayed his friend George Kokinis to come from the Baltimore Ravens to their GM, Konkinis thought he and the former New York Jets coach were going to be a team, like the New England Patriot's former tandmen of coach Bill Belichick and GM Scott Pioli.

But while Mangini's former idol Belichick did at times listened to Pioli, all personnel decisions went through Mangini, his including many New York Jets who are now part of the Browns and the recent trade of wide receiver Braylon Edwards to the Jets.

While Mangini was directing the Browns towards a 1-7 record , GM George Koninis was basically:

A man with no position.

A man with now say.

A man with power, who ultimately paid the price for a coach who for some reason, still keeps his job

Lil Jon - Give It All U Got (feat. Kee)

Michael Jackson's "This is it" Makes $32.5 Million....New York Times says Box Office is Not Thrilling

This past week, Michael Jackson's concert rehearsal movie "This is it" made $32.5 million, ($101 million worldwide.) The New York Times headline was "This Is It" Tops The U.S. Box Office, but Not Thrilling.

Below is my response to the NY Times article:

How can anyone downplay "This is it" making $32.5 mill (over $100 mill worldwide) for its first first five days of release.

How many concert movies has made that type of money in its first week? Better yet, how many concert rehearsal movies has made that type of money? Hmm, let me think...none!

OK maybe I'm not being fair. I like Hillary Swank a lot, let's see how much did her film Amelia make this week? Ooh, just $3 million.

OK, what about "Saw IV", this past weekend it was Halloween and everybody loves Saw right ? Ouch, $5.6 million.

This is not to knock those films, but no one expected this Michael Jackson's "This is it" to be "Spiderman 3" and gross over 100 million its first weekend.

But to make over $30 million from put together concert rehearsal footage, from an artist that passed away a few months ago, these numbers look pretty good to me.
