Ellen DeGeneres

 

Yep… you heard it right… Ellen DeGeneres. The Emmy-winning daytime queen has signed on as the latest face of CoverGirl Cosmetics and will star in a new print and commercial ad campaign that’s rolling out in January.

Check out this photo where she prepares for the photo shoot. I think CoverGirl did a clever choice of selecting Ellen. And the new image of CoverGirl. CoverGirl is known to represent fun and bubbly models and Ellen will do a good justice in exuding this theme.  With a fun and playful attitude, Ellen will surely rock CoverGirl.

New Angelina Jolie Movie: The Changeling

13 09 2008

 

I used to love Angelina solely because of her unparalleled performance in Girl Interrupted. I knew then that this girl should win the Oscars. Thankfully this girl did win the Best Supporting Actress for that film. Then I tried to watch over this girl if she has more to offer, unfortunately I didn’t see a potential winning performance until now.

Clint Eastwood directs Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich in a provocative thriller based on actual events: “Changeling.” In the film, Christine Collins’ (Jolie) prayers are met when her kidnapped son is returned. But amidst the frenzy of the photo-op reunion, she realizes this child is not hers. Facing corrupt police and a skeptical public, she desperately hunts for answers, only to be confronted by a truth that will change her forever.

Los Angeles, 1928: On a Saturday morning in a working-class suburb, Christine said goodbye to her son, Walter, and left for work. When she came home, she discovered he had vanished. A fruitless search ensues, and months later, a boy claiming to be the nine-year-old is returned. Dazed by the swirl of cops, reporters and her conflicted emotions, Christine allows him to stay overnight. But in her heart, she knows he is not Walter.

As she pushes authorities to keep looking, she learns that in Prohibition-era L.A., women don’t challenge the system and live to tell their story. Slandered as delusional and unfit, Christine finds an ally in activist Reverend Briegleb (Malkovich), who helps her fight the city to look for her missing boy. Based on the actual incident that rocked California’s legal system, “Changeling” tells the shocking tale of a mother’s quest to find her son, and those who won’t stop until they silence her.

Jupiterboi says:

When I watched the trailer, I knew that this film will certainly end up in the Oscar nominations… why? 3 reasons… Clint Eastwood, a period film, and a different Angelina Jolie. I believe Clint Eastwood alone is enough reason because he is like the Oscar’s favorite director at least for this decade. A film by him is like a definite or almost sure win in the Oscars. Another reason is period films give out a different and interesting piece to watch. The Oscars love to relive periods that either give the greatest joy to a certain era or the greatest sorrow. The 1920s is a period where equality of the sexes is tested. The film captures a real significant event were the men ruled and women rights are considered taboo. Angelina Jolie is the most perfect actress to portray the character Christine. Not only she is believable as a woman conflicted by standards of society, she also represents a character ready to conquer all the odds.

I do hope at least Angelina earns an Oscar nomination for this film. Here is the trailer of this film:

The Scholars and The Journey – New Hot Albums to watch for

6 09 2008

 

I am just looking around Trinoma when I saw these two new albums. I feel that these two albums are worth buying so I immediately bought some for me and listened. Indeed my instincts again proved that I made the right decision.

Let’s start with this year’s Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 album – Scholars sings Cayabyab. This is collection of some old and new Ryan Cayabyab compositions interpreted by this years Pinoy Dream Academy Top Ten scholars with last season’s winner Yeng Constantino. I personally love Bugoy’s song “Paano na Kaya”. It is simple yet it totally suits his vocal range. Prepare also for the diva-like songs of Laarni and Liezel with their songs “Manalig ka” and “I’d Rather”. I liked also Van’s version of “Another Goodbye Song”. Check out this album … it cost only P250.

 

 

Probably the best buy I made this week is the comeback album of Journey – Revelation. It is truly a revelation for me because I never wanted rock bands but as soon as I heard “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Open Arms”… I instantly became a fan. I can’t stop saying OMG because the album is so damn good. Ariel Pineda is really something to look forward. His voice is really on fire and edgy. I compared his voice with the former lead singer Steve Perry and I tell you my hair all raise up of the close resemblance. It is good that many Pinoys are being given a chance in the international scene. Here are the current band members of the band:

Neal Schon – lead & rhythm guitars, backing vocals, lead vocals (1973-present)
Ross Valory – bass, backing vocals, lead vocals (1973-1985, 1995-present)
Jonathan Cain – piano, keyboards, harmonica, rhythm guitar, backing vocals, lead vocals (1980-present)
Deen Castronovo – drums, percussion, backing vocals, lead vocals (1998-present)
Arnel Pineda – lead vocals (2007-present)

The album is worth buying since this is a double CD album. The first CD contains the new songs of the band while the second CD is a rendition of the Classic Journey songs. If you are in Europe and Tokyo, you get a bonus tracks. “Let It Take You Back” is the bonus track on the European release, and “The Place in Your Heart” is the bonus track on the Japanese release.

Currently Revelations ranks the #2 slot for Billboard Rock album Category and is possible nominee for the best Classic Rock Album of the Year. The album excited Gold sales and possible Platinum sales.

What can I say… Just Don’t Stop Believing… and fulfill your life longs dreams guys.

Stand Up to Cancer Telethon – a monumental concert for Cancer victims

6 09 2008

 

 Stand Up To Cancer

In a rare event the 3 most powerful TV network in America (NBC, ABC, CBS) aired last night a telethon like no other: Stand up for Cancer Telethon. Here is the E! Online summary of the event:

 

(source: Stand Up to Cancer Gets a Rise Out of Hollywood’s Finest by Natalie Finn)

 

The stars came out tonight with hopes of brightening the way for years to come.

Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek, Ellen DeGeneres, Keanu Reeves, Billy Crystal, Scarlett Johansson, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Casey Affleck, America Ferrera, Fran Drescher, Forest Whitaker, John Krasinski, Christina Applegate, Josh Brolin and Masi Oka are just some of the A-listers who participated Friday in the Stand Up to Cancer telethon, benefiting cancer research, at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.

Meryl Streep, Charlize Theron, the stars of Lost, Lance Armstrong, Tina Fey and some fellow 30 Rockers, Carson Daly and Tom Green also spoke up via video. 

 

But despite a roster of names that wouldn’t have seemed out of place at the Oscars, it was sobering to see how many of the event’s participants’ lives have been affected by cancer, including Applegate, who after being diagnosed with breast cancer this year underwent a preventative double mastectomy, Katie Couric, whose husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer in 1998.

 

Couric presided over the special with her network news competition, NBC’s Brian Williams and ABC’s Charles Gibson, both of whom have also lost family members to the disease. On a rare night of Nielsen disregard, the show aired live and commercial-free on NBC, ABC, CBS.

 

“It’s all about collaboration,” Couric said. “Collaboration among the networks, collaboration among cancer researchers all around the country…and ultimately, the collaboration of the American people, who can unite behind a single cause that affects so many people.”

 

Addressing the audience before the show, executive producer (and cancer survivor) Laura Ziskin took a swipe at Fox for not getting with the program.

 

News Corp. exec Peter Chernin sent flowers, she quipped, but “a very large donation from News Corp.” would be better.

 

While the overall tone of the evening was about as serious as it gets, what with the heartrending montage of sick children, testimonials from those who have battled or lost someone to cancer and some very sobering statistics (someone dies of cancer every minute in the U.S.), Ziskin didn’t forget to bring the funny.

 

Among the lighter moments were a James L. Brooks-provided Simpsons short, in which Homer gets a colonoscopy (“Mmmm, Mayo,” he said when welcomed to the Mayo Clinic); Brad Garrett bending over for a prostate exam (“I can’t believe Fox is counterprogramming against this”) and the usual shenanigans courtesy of Jack Black.

 

“I usually watch these things at home in my underpants, saying, Look at all these celebs!” the Tropic Thunder star said before urging Brolin, who was on the phone taking pledges, to call up DeGeneres, who was sitting a few sits away, and donate some of that No Country for Old Men cash.

 

Also spied answering phones were Rob Lowe, Mandy Moore, Jon Favreau, Jimmy Fallon, Christina Ricci, Marg Helgenberger, Goran Visnjik, Mekhi Phifer, Marissa Jaret Winokur, David Spade and Sharon Osbourne.

 

The celeb quotient multiplied significantly, as well, when Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Fergie, Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, LeAnn Rhimes, Nicole Scherzinger and Ashanti performed via satellite (from Fashion Rocks at Radio City Music Hall) the cause’s new anthem, “Just Stand Up,” which went on sale Tuesday on iTunes.

 

Melissa Etheridge, yet another of the survivors in the house tonight, performed the song live to close out the show.

 

Here are some of the pics that Kevin Mazur/Getty took during the event:

I love programs that seek unification instead of hate propaganda. It is a good ice breaker with all the MacCain and Obama battle going on. The sad thing though for me is that will it really end Cancer? Cancer treatment of any type is really costly. I think a massive education and good healthy living is a integral key to prevent Cancer. Stop Smoking (my # 1 enemy… I just simply hate them… these people doesn’t even care of others right for clean air)… Stop excessive alcoholic drinks… Stop eating Junk foods (although I’m always eating them)… and most of all Stop Discrimination and Indifference (for me the biggest Cancer of all). If we all learn to care and share, whether we get afflicted with physical diseases, Love will surely take us to a rewarding life.
