Blame it on the rain (rain)
Blame it on the stars (stars)
Whatever you do don't put the blame on you
Blame it on the rain yeah yeah
You can blame it on the rain

Gotta blame it on something
Gotta blame it on something

:jumping:

It is sad the way one of them committed suicide. I always wondered why the 'image' was so important. Why not give the Grammy awards to the real singers? Why not let them shine? Do they really look that bad?

Well, dark/tall/handsome + good breakdancers are hard to find..that was why they got award so fast, I think!!...People just loved the way they looked/danced...I must say that they had CHARISMA ! I imagine if Samuel Jackson and Danny Glover performed the song/dance in GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE....would anyone watch and buy the videos that many millions??
Ooh ooh ooh.. no no !! Ooh ooh ooh... girls run away fast!! :tongue:

Oh..look/personality is everything in show business??
Thank you for reading my silly story,

Oops! Britney Spears/Midnight Blue

Post by yawares » Mon Sep 10, 2012 4:09 pm

Dear Members,

Britney Jean Spears was born in McComb (Mississippi) and raised in rural Louisiana (Kentwood) to Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears. As a child, Britney attended dance classes, and she was great at gymnastics, winning many competitions and the like. But, most of all, Britney loved to sing. At age 8, Britney tried out for "The All New Mickey Mouse Club" (1989), but was turned down due to her young age. This directed her to an off-Broadway show, "Ruthless", for a 2-year run as the title character. At age 11, she again tried for "The All New Mickey Mouse Club" (1989) and, this time, made it as a mouseketeer alongside many stars of today (Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez of *NSYNC and Ryan Gosling). Her big break, however, came when she was signed as a Jive Recording Artist in the late 90s. With the release of her debut album, "...Baby One More Time" in early 1999, Britney became an international success, selling 13 million copies of "Baby" and 9 million (as of July 2001) of her sophomore album, "Oops!..I Did It Again", released in May of 2000.

MALICE/Point Of No Return*****

Post by yawares » Sun Sep 16, 2012 12:48 pm

Dear members,

I watched MALICE starring: Alec Baldwin/Nicole Kidman/Bill Pullman..my 3 favorite stars. If you like serial killers,double life,dangerous friends,murder investigations...oh yes... this is the movie for you!
:jumping:

http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/i ... ec+baldwin" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Alec Baldwin stars in this thriller as Dr. Jed Hill, a brilliant young trauma specialist who begins to believe he can do no wrong after he saves the life of a patient given up for dead by another doctor. Jed runs into an old classmate, Andy Safian (Bill Pullman), who is now a college dean. Andy invites Jed to stay with him in the attic bedroom of a house he is renovating with his wife Tracy (Nicole Kidman). Tracy takes a dislike to Jed, whom she thinks is a psychotic egomaniac. In the mean time, Andy has to deal with a serial killer on the loose among the campus dorms. While Andy is helping belligerent law enforcement officials with the murder investigation and Jed is drinking straight shots at the local saloon, Tracy begins to have abdominal pains and is rushed to the emergency room. Jed comes directly from the bar and slices her open, removing more from her body cavity than he should. The allegations fly fast and furious between Tracy, Andy, and Jed. :twothumbsup:

I bet you can not guess how the story end!! Very good plot indeed!! :thumbsup:

Love this movie,

This doesn't sound like my kind of movie, Yawares. I do watch movies but I look for films with some useful insights into life or, if not that, then at least some genuine happiness.

Too Young To Handle Fame/Fortune !!

Post by yawares » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:36 pm

Dear Members,

I love these cute/fun movies very much: Love Wrecked :thumbsup: /What A Girl Wants :thumbsup: /Sydney White/She's The Man :thumbsup: , starring: my favorite young actress "Amanda Bynes".


Image

Today I read the news: Amanda Bynes has finally been taken off the road – and everybody seems to have an opinion about the troubled star, including Lindsay Lohan.

:heart: Toy Soldiers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh334Tn7 ... re=related" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

:heart: Drugs Or Jesus : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFPlFz4A ... re=related" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Party All Night : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHDKHKix ... ure=fvwrel" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

After being ordered by a judge not to drive following a DUI charge and two counts of hit-and-run, Bynes thumbed her nose at authority, continuing to get behind the wheel and driving her car all over Los Angeles. But on Sunday morning, the 26-year-old’s joy riding came to an end when she was pulled over and issued a ticket for driving with a suspended license (a misdemeanor), and watched as her black BMW was impounded on the spot.

It was unclear where Bynes was headed when she was stopped at 8:20 a.m. on Sunday, but she was wearing skin-tight pants and stiletto shoes, and was apparently alone at the time.


Bynes – who has been exhibiting peculiar behavior as of late, reportedly talking to herself while alone in public places – must have known this was coming. Less than a week ago she was photographed driving her BMW while smoking something from a pipe. The series of photos, obtained by TMZ, also showed Bynes exiting a parking lot through the entrance, mere feet from two signs that read “Wrong Way” and “Do Not Enter.” Two days later, and after a judge ordered her to stop driving, she was again behind the wheel and hit a parked car. Police were not involved that time but paparazzi snapped photos of the incident.

-------
Troubles seemed to follow these young stars like Amanda Bynes/Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan/River Pheonix (dead at 23)/Corey Haim(dead at 38)...and many more young entertainers etc.

Too young to handle fame/fortune, :cry:

Well they have been to much attached on what is beautiful... so take care.
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

Yes, always this bad people... we would have no problems if all would be just beautiful and nobody would touch that. But would be realy happy if nobody would touch us, isolated like a golden rose?
So we say Touch me! Touch me! and mara is never a party pooper. How called him?
Just that! *smile*

INXS Death/Eye In The Sky

Post by yawares » Sun Oct 14, 2012 4:14 pm

Dear Members,

I and my daughter used to watch INXS on MTV years ago...but I still play these hit songs every now and then. :jumping:

http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/i ... inxs+death" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Michael Kelland John Hutchence (22 January 1960 – 22 November 1997) was an Australian musician and actor. He was a founding member and the lead singer and lyricist of rock band INXS from 1977 to his death in 1997. Hutchence was a member of short-lived pop rock group Max Q and recorded solo material which was released posthumously. He acted in feature films, including Dogs in Space (1986) and Frankenstein Unbound (1990). According to rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, "Hutchence was the archetypal rock showman. He exuded an overtly sexual, macho cool with his flowing locks, and lithe and exuberant stage movements".[1] Hutchence won the 'Best International Artist' at the 1991 BRIT Awards with INXS winning the related group award.

His private life was often reported in the Australian and international press, with a string of love affairs with prominent actresses, models and singers. Hutchence's relationship with UK television presenter Paula Yates began while she was still married to music artist and Live Aid organiser, Bob Geldof. Hutchence and Yates had a daughter in 1996 just after she had divorced Geldof. Hutchence's death in 1997 was determined by the New South Wales Coroner to be the result of suicide – the finding was disputed by Yates, Hutchence's family and his fans. In 2000, Yates died of asphyxiation and their daughter was placed in Geldof's custody with her half-sisters.

Greetings,

I really liked INXS' "Welcome To Wherever You Are" album, which incidentally had Beautiful Girl on it - one of the songs listed in Yawares' post above.
