Well, I for one, am thankful that somebody is out here letting Tyra Banks do her damn thing. Tyra’s an affable, good natured clown, and we could all use a little more of that in #thesetryingtimes. As you know, somebody gave Tyra upwards of $5,000 and an after-closing shopping spree at TopShop to make a sequel to Life-Size which co-starred Lindsay Lohan and originally aired on the Disney Channel back in 2000. As promised, for Life-Size 2: Smize Queen, Tyra’s recorded a new version of the song “Be A Star” and don’t you dare say it’s anything less than a masterpiece. Yes, this is the hill I’ve chosen to die on. #Justice4Tyra.
You’d be hard pressed to find a man in Hollywood more universally liked and respected than Weird Al Yankovic. Not only does he seem like a legitimately good guy, he’s earned himself a spot among the music industry elite having received 11 Grammy nominations, 4 wins and selling over 12 million albums (per Variety). That’s a better track record than half the acts he parodies. So it’s fitting that Weird Al has just been honored with Hollywood’s own parody of success; a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Screw the Oscars! Fuck Vanity Fair’s party! And pfft to Elton John’s soiree! The event that Allison and I should’ve written 4500 posts about is the event where every bright shining star of the A-list universe was: The Annual Night of 100 Stars! When Gary From Chicago and the other tourists walked into the Dolby Theater last night, they looked a little disappointed to me and now I know why. They wished they were at The Night of 100 Stars with real celebrities instead of at the Who Cares Awards with a bunch of has-beens and never-wases.
This year’s Annual Night of 100 Stars was held in the party room at Shakey’s on Reseda in Northridge, and the desserts were provided by Carvel and the event’s official booze sponsor was MD 20/20 fine wines. No, it wasn’t that elegant. It was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, and leading the 100 Stars was noted Anna Nicole cosplayer Courtney Stodden who brought her three puppies. I don’t know if Courtney’s pooch Cupcake is overwhelmed by all the star power or is thinking about putting herself out of her misery by jumping. It’s definitely the first one.
