Michael Jackson fans show their love in LA

So yesterday afternoon we all heard the news. Since then there has been a steady stream of people paying their respect all over the globe. In LA the main attraction was his Star on Hollywood Blvd.

It was nuts.

There were thousands of people on both sides of the busy street. There were fences set up all around the star which is directly in front of the famous Mann's Chinese Theater. There were hundreds of news cameras and reporters covering the frenzy and interviewing fans crammed into the fencing like sardines, sweating on each other soaked in LA heat!

It was hot.

Mini business' popped up selling t-shirts, bracelets, signs and all sorts. Some people where there out of curiosity and some were die hard fans. A wide range of people from all over and then there were the impersonators.

It felt a bit like a zoo, which I guess is no surprise.

Like many others there... I still don't know how to feel about it all.

Thanks to those who I talked to for the show. It was an interesting day.

Rest In Peace Michael Jackson.

Its all crazy love down here today!

Handsome in Hollywood

A simpler time...

in the early eighties when there were no cell phones, no internet, no kiddie sex allegations, when Michael Jackson and Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air (HE'S THE KID IN THE RED LEATHER JACKET)danced for cola products.

We've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate him but he was completely unresponsive.

We're told one of the staff members at Jackson's home called 911.

La Toya ran in the hospital sobbing after Jackson was pronounced dead.

NOTE: It appears TMZ was the first to break this story and now CTV, Newsweek, CNN and many other reputable news outlets are reporting the same thing.

Best way to waste your day... FAIL BLOG!

This is just ridiculous.

Here's another classic from FAIL BLOG


In the words of Jay Awesome.... Holy fucking shitballs WHAT THE FUCK!!!!

Parents this is why you DO NOT let your kids play World of Warcraft day in and day out. They end up loosing touch with reality, getting no exercise, and have zero social skills.

This kid flips his lid when his mom cancels his World of Warcraft account. Hey mom, good move if your kid is this upset over losing his gaming rights chances are he has nothing else going for himself in life. Get the kid enroled in some outdoor sports, definetly a better place for him to channel all that energy.

Perez Hilton gets BOOM BOOM POW from Black Eyed Peas

The MuchMusic Video Awards is arguably Toronto's wildest party. They shut down Queen St. and shit just gets silly. Apparently it got too silly last night for Perez Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas. A bunch of shit was said and blah blah blah Perez gets knocked the fuck out. it was only a matter of time.

You know how I know you're gay? You weren't at Coldplay last night.

I'll admit that I've always thought Coldplay's music was a little "soft."
I was convinced that Chris Martin was going to release a solo album called " Loafer Lightener LTD." So believe me when I say I wasn't that pumped to go to the concert last night, but the tickets were free so what the hell, right? Plus I had just finished interviewing Gary from Snow Patrol who opened for Coldplay. He's funny as hell. You will be able to hear my Snow Patrol interview on Hotmess next week! 
I digress. 
Last night I went to see Coldplay and holy fucking shitballs they put on an amazing live show. Not even a was an event. It was everything a concert should be- dynamic, entertaining, professional, fun, funny, loud and surprising.
 The most surprising thing of all was the fact that they actually rocked! I know! What?!?!?!?!
Yeah, they re-worked some of their old tracks (like the kick ass techno version of the song Talk) and songs like Violet Hill, Yellow and Politik were loud and powerful as shit. 

There's definitely a reason these guys are so popular.
Some of their songs still suck mashed potatoes and gravy through a straw though.....
