Meryl Streep Gets Lifetime Achievement Award at Golden Globes

At the 2017 Golden Globes in Los Angeles Meryl Streep – one of America’s best ever screen actresses received a lifetime achievement award. Well deserved however some would argue that this achievement was somewhat tarnished when she used her acceptance speech as a soap box to attack Donald Trump. This was a bit of a trend on the night, however her tirade was by far the most vociferous and led Donald Trump to take to Twitter in response calling her “One of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood”.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion however we feel that this political rhetoric is now going a bit over the top and somewhat overshadowed what was a great evening cumulating with the record-breaking haul of seven Golden Globes awarded to the nostalgic (and in our opinion Fantastic) musical La La Land.

New Bond Movie Skyfall Due late 2012

Despite disappointing somewhat with the last Movie “Quantum of Solace” Bond is back later this year with Skyfall which will hopefully get the franchise back on track. This will be the 23rd Bond Movie.

The Full Press Conference interview is below together with the teaser trailer which they hope will tempt us all to indulge in the Popcorn experience.

Press Conference


The action is scheduled to start on 9th November 2012.

Katie Price Tells It Like It Is

Katie Price (AKA Jordan) is not renowned for her critical observations however her recent comments regarding Victoria Beckham’ s statement in Harper’s Bazaar where she alludes to the fact that she represents the general woman in the street was a rare lucid moment for her and rather amusing to boot.

Victoria clearly seems to have forgotten that the average UK or US woman is not a size 6 and unless healthy eating and regular exercise is made compulsory they never will be.

However we do think that she could have been a little more tactful with her comments as you can judge from her comments published in The Sun Newspaper:

‘I think all this Californian sunshine is sending Posh senile because she is a size 6, and if she’d read the papers this week she would know that the general public like eating pasties and the average British woman is a size 16. They can’t afford Posh’s £1,000 dresses let alone fit into them.’

Mariah Carey Puts a Little Sizzle Into X-Mas

The Lovely Mariah Carey has given men around the world an early X-Mas treat by donning a rather nifty Santa suit in the video for the Duet re-release of her classic X-mas Number “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. It also features Justin Bieber who still looks young enough to still believe in Santa, especially given he seems more interested in the 3DS console.

Kelly Clarkson Back On Form With New Single Mr. Know It All

Kelly Clarkson the original American Idol is back on form with her latest single taken from the studio album “Stronger”, is a slight change of pace from some of her other songs but the soulful vocals and the piano and drums make it rather catchy; somewhat reminiscent of a young Tina Turner.

She performed it live on “The View” looking kinda cute with a pony tail in a figure hugging dress. The spikey bracelet looked a bit frightening though.

The official video is pretty cool too

We are looking forward to hearing the rest of the album which is out now.
