So, I'm off to NYC bright and early tomorrow morning to see the Madonna concert (yes again) tomorrow night.
While in NYC, I'll be checking out The History Boys and seeing the Sandra Bernhard show...and hopefully going to the Madonna night at splash on Friday.
Once I get back I should be back to Mykeywood more regularily

from People:

I was Fired!

Star Jones Reynolds announced Tuesday morning on The View that she'll be leaving the show in July after nine years as a cohost.
"After much prayer and counsel I feel like this is the right time to tell you that the show is moving in another direction for its tenth season and I will not be returning as cohost next year," she said on the air.
So why is she leaving? Contrary to speculation that she's unhappy about the upcoming addition of Rosie O'Donnell – one of Jones Reynolds’s most vocal critics – to the show this fall, she reveals exclusively in this week's PEOPLE magazine that the departure was not her choice.
"What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the tenth season," she tells PEOPLE. "I feel like I was fired." She adds that she was told her contract wouldn't be renewed just days before news leaked that O'Donnell would be joining The View.
Jones Reynolds, 44, was part of the original lineup with Meredith Vieira (who has already departed to replace Katie Couric on the Today show), Joy Behar and show creator and executive producer Barbara Walters.

Here are a couple of pics I found with my mom and I at the Madonna show in Montreal

Thursday, June 22, 2006

All I can say is...Oh My Fucking God.

The Confessions tour surpassed my greatest expectations!!!!!!!!!!
If you have a chance to see it, make sure you do!

I took my mom for her 65th b-day. We were 4th row from the stage, but front row from the catwalk, which was less than an arms length away. I was as close to Madonna as I had been when I was in the "Pit" during the Re-invention tour. The catwalk is THE place to be.. Loads of eye contact with Madge, finger touching. My cute little mom danced and sang...and I loved the whole thing from start to finish.

Can't wait for the NYC show on the 29th!

I have to work on getting catwalk seats for another show too...that is if I can convince the love 'o my life that oit's worth anotehr $700 + all the travel expenses.

Here's some info on the HBC PRIDE event taking place at the Bay, Bloor Street location this Friday....just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Village. The store is open until 11pm that night and they have some great events out in front of the store.

Reese Witherspoon enjoys some fun in the sun with her two kids. Where's Ryan? I want Ryan in a bathing suit damn it!

Today marks the start of Pride week in Toronto...I love Pride and can't wait for all the parties, especially Pride-a-licious III, but I think I should go to Pride in Sao Paulo Brazil at least once...oh my my

Dominic Managhan appears to have LOST something...his undies. Nice bulge for a hobbit!

Stephen Dorff tends to be in shit movies...which is while I've avoided them...until now.
The director of the new Dorff movie, Lee Daniels, says that Dorff has plenty to offer in the full-frontal department:
"We got swinging dick from Steven Dorff. Big swinging dick. We had three versions of Steven's penis — semi-erect, fully erect and sort of flaccid. So we went for the semi-erect. The director's cut is going to be off the hook."
YaY!

Only two more sleeps until I’ll be 4th row, in Montreal, watching Madonna live…yay!!!!!!!!!

Madonna’s fantastic documentary, I’m Going to Tell You a Secret DVD + Live CD, comes out tomorrow!!! This is the cheapest price I’ve found:

Even I think Nicole Kidman (who's preggers by the way) has really gone a little too far with all the botox injections

from the L.A. Times:
"Treasure Hunters," which premieres Sunday night on NBC and moves to Mondays thereafter, is really no more than the globe-trotting CBS reality-competition series "The Amazing Race" dressed in the clothes of the 2004 Nicolas Cage action film "National Treasure." That film was about a hoard of loot hidden by the Founding Fathers behind a series of "Da Vinci Code"-style firewalls, brain teasers and locked boxes, and though the resemblances may not be technically actionable, if the network legal department has done its job, they are close enough that we may reasonably imagine Jerry Bruckheimer — producer of both "The Amazing Race" and "National Treasure," oddly — wondering just what is up with that.

Nick has moved on at last...and here are the pics to proove it.

So aside from the fab time I had at the Holt Renfrew party last night, I also had a VERY unusual thing happen to me at the gym.
After my workout I went to the locker room to change and found someone had left me a lovely present...a used condom wrapped around my lock. Lovely.
Honestly, what's wrong with people? Who would
a) Think that's funny?
b) Be so demented?

Just got back from the exclusive Holt Renfrew pre-pride party called Blu. Got loads of freebies, martini's, and got to stare at a sea of hot shirtless go-go boy/ model types. YUMMY! Now I just hope my ballot in the "win a trip to St. Barths" contest is the lucky one! The dress code was...as you may guess, blue...I love a dress code.
Thanks for the hook-up, you know who you are!

Madonna's 3rd single, Get Together, from the Confessions CD will have its' video premiere on:
Thursday, June 15th!

I saw an advance screening of The Devil Wears prada last week:
Well, I didn't read the book so I can't give you a review comparing the two. It was a cute fluffy movie. I generally loathe Anne Hathaway (even in Brokeback) but she was quite good. Meryl was bang on as the bitchy/ difficult editor-in-chief, when isn't she great though?
I completely stopped paying attention the the movie during Madonna's Jump and Vogue (which were quite lengthy clips)
Some of the people who saw the movie didn't seem to care for it much (mostly everyone at the screening works in some form or another in the Canadian fashion world)...so perhaps it was too close to home or maybe they just thought it was too over the top and unrealistic (but really, what would you expect from a mainstream Hollywood film?)
For what it is, fashion + comedy + 2 Madonna songs + nice shots of New York and Paris...I thought it was entertaining. And Simon Baker with no shirt on, yum!

Dannii Minogue was joined by her sister, Kylie, last night at G.A.Y in London. Kylie was there to support her sis who was performing but decided to get in on the fun and sang "Jump To The Beat". Nice to see Kylie back and is doing well

For the first time in BIG BROTHER history worldwide, viewers will vote on which former HouseGuests will compete in BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS.

The polls close Wednesday, June 28 at 11:59PM ET/8:59PM PT.
All 20 candidates will be present when Julie Chen announces the ALL-STARS HouseGuests on the season premiere, Thursday, July 6 at 8PM ET/PT. BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS will follow the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the HouseGuests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining HouseGuest will receive the Grand Prize of $500,000. While living together in a confined space won't be anything new to the HouseGuests, choosing between any pre-existing relationships and building new alliances could be a challenge. As always, CBS.com will be your destination for exciting new interactive features, along with all the hottest BIG BROTHER info, including the 24/7 live video feed, Revenge of the HouseGuests blog, episode synopses, HoH Snapshots and much more.

Elizabeth Hurley has NO personality, which is why she has been replaced as the host of Project Catwalk, the UK’s version of Project Runway. The new host is Kelly Osbourne. I saw the first couple of Episodes and Liz was awful, so it cann't actually get any worse

H&M TO DRESS MADONNA'S TEAM ON CONFESSIONS WORLD TOUR

Upcoming Advertising Campaign With Madonna and Dancers to Follow In a dream marriage of music and fashion,

Madonna, has joined up with fashion giant H&M to supply a complete off stage wardrobe for her entire touring troupe including her band, dancers, crew members and the Material girl herself, it was announced today by H&M.

With a shared philosophy of diversity and fashion freedom, 'Team Madonna' participants will be free to choose clothing from H&M's extensive 2006 collection. Madonna, whose Confessions Tour opened on May 21st, will be dressed by famed designer Jean-Paul Gaultier while on-stage looks forward to being equally fashionable when she steps off the stage in H&M. 'Partnering up with H&M feels like a perfect fit. We'll all get to express ourselves in our own individual ways. The dancers and I are excited to go shopping together,' stated Madonna. Other aspects of the collaboration between H&M and the artist will include a specially designed Madonna track suit which will be available in H&M stores in mid August as well as an advertising campaign featuring Madonna and her legendary dancers. 'This is a thrill for H&M. Aside from being great fans of Madonna's music and fashion sense, we admire her ability to always be ahead of the trends in everything she does. We look forward to seeing how her touring family translates H&M's seasonal trends to their own personal looks,' says H&M's head of design Margareta van den Bosch. Founded in Sweden in 1947, H&M, which has over 1,200 stores in 22 countries, is synonymous around the world with affordable, up to date and high quality fashion. The company's collections are created by their own designers. The spring/summer 2006 seasonal trends are romanticism inspired by the early 1900's - clean cut tailoring in light neutrals and Riviera style preppy glamour. In addition, there is a wide range of updated classics including knitwear, denim, t-shirts and mix and match sweatshirts and accessories to complete any individual look. Madonna, a multi-Grammy Award winning artist, children's author and visionary is a cultural innovator of astonishing diversity and enduring appeal. Her current CD Confessions On A Dance Floor debuted at No.1 in 29 countries. The Confessions Tour is scheduled to travel the world through the end of September.

People and Hello! magazines launched legal action Wednesday against two Web sites that published a picture of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt with their newborn daughter.

Pitt and Jolie sold rights to the images of Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, born May 27 in Namibia, through Getty Images photo agency. The couple said all proceeds would be donated to a charity, not yet named.
People magazine paid a reported $4 million for the right to release the pictures in North America, while Hello! obtained British rights.
The embargo on the images was broken when two gossip Web sites posted an apparent image of the front cover of Hello!
Hello! denies leaking the photo, saying its cover was kept strictly under wraps. The magazine said it and People "have taken immediate legal action to prevent publication of its cover prior to it going on sale" Thursday in Britain.
On Wednesday, Pitt and Jolie made their first public appearance since the birth of their daughter, thanking Namibia for the privacy and peace they enjoyed.
"We have been able to have a very special, peaceful time for our family here, exploring your country and more importantly helping with the delivery of our daughter Shiloh," Pitt told a news conference for local journalists at a hotel in the coastal town of Swakopmund. "So for that we are eternally grateful."
Jolie, 30, gave birth to Shiloh Nouvel at a private clinic in Walvis Bay. Delivered by Caesarean section, the baby weighed 7 pounds and was said to be in good health.
Pitt, 42, and Jolie retreated to the southwest African country for government-assisted privacy in the weeks leading up to the birth. They plan to leave in the coming days, without specifying a date.
Jolie, relaxed and smiling in a long black dress, said the couple had sought a place where they could spend some special time with her children, 16-month-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia, and 4-year-old Maddox, adopted from Cambodia. Both children had their surnames legally changed to Jolie-Pitt after Pitt announced his intention to adopt them as well.
"We both had traveled to Africa and loved this part of the world," the actress said.
