Bristol Palin Reportedly Lined-Up For “Dancing With The Stars”. Levi Johnston must be green with envy right now. Baby mama Bristol Palin has reportedly been cast on the 11th season of “Dancing With the Stars.” According to our source, Sarah Palin’s 19-year-old daughter will be joining other rumored hopefuls – David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, The Situation and Brandy – for the upcoming season of the show. As for the other reported contestants, Kirstie Alley and anyone from “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” the website claims they won’t be there. ABC refuses to comment on casting rumors, adding that the cast line-up will officially be revealed on Monday during “Bachelor Pad.” Bristol already had an ABC work experience. She guest starred as herself on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” last month.
Lauren Conrad is a TV star from the MTV shows “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills.” While you can easily say her roles lack, well, substance, you cannot say the same for Conrad’s ride. It is full of it, in a good way. She rides around Los Angeles in the incredible Audi R8 supercar. The midmounted monster — which goes zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, delivers 317 lb-ft of torque and has a top speed of 187 mph — is also favored by macho types such as English soccer ace Robbie Fowler and actor David Hasselhoff. So, while seeing a tiny, blond, SoCal reality TV star tooling around in this powerhouse is a bit disconcerting, it’s also, dare we say it, totally awesome! It sure beats Paris Hilton’s cringe-inducing pink Bentley.
She might be set to take the charts by storm once more with her latest single ‘Love Game’, but Lady GaGa has been voted creepier than Marilyn Manson by music fans this Halloween. The American singer-songwriter, renowned for her weird fashion sense, topped the poll conducted by music video website, Muzu.tv, with her video for recent hit Paparazzi. Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller video – usually the staple Halloween horror for music fans – only charted at number three. Other videos that gave fans the shivers included Prodigy’s ‘Smack My Bitch Up’, as well some more unusual choices including videos from former X-Factor hopefuls Chico and saccharine sibling-duo Same Difference.
Top Ten Creepy Artists:
Lady GaGa – Paparazzi
Chico – It’s Chico Time
Michael Jackson – Thriller
David Hasselhoff – Jump in My Car
Bjork – Triumph of a Heart
Same Difference – We R One
Slipknot – Wait and Bleed
Nirvana – Heart-Shaped Box
Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up
Marilyn Manson – The Beautiful People
TONY CHRISTIE has been added to this year’s Glastonbury line-up. The crooner will play the main Pyramid Stage on the Sunday afternoon of the three-day festival. Christie, who said he was “in awe” of the event, follows in the footsteps of Neil Diamond, Dame Shirley Bassey, Brian Wilson and James Brown, who have all played Sunday slots over the past few years. Fans can expect to hear him perform his number one hit (Is This The Way To) Amarillo, which spent seven weeks at the top 2005 after it was re-released for Comic Relief. Christie said he was “excited” about performing at the event and told BBC News: “I’m going to do some of the new album tracks and I’ve got to do my old stuff as well. “I did the V Festival three years ago but I think Glastonbury is the big one, so it’s a great honour.” Neil Young, Blur and Bruce Springsteen have already been confirmed as headliners at the festival, with Franz Ferdinand, Lily Allen and Fleet Foxes among the other acts performing. The full line-up will be announced nearer the event, which takes place in Somerset from 27-29 June.
British balladeer Tony Christie proved the continued commercial viability of traditional pop in a post-psychedelic world, scoring a series of easy listening hits that spanned the 1970s. Born Anthony Fitzgerald in South Yorkshire, England, on April 25, 1943, at 18 he joined the popular local group the Counterbeats, later fronting his own combo, Tony Christie & the Trackers. After mounting a solo career, he cut his debut single, “Life’s Too Good to Waste,” in 1966, followed a year later by “Turn Around.” Upon signing to MCA in 1969, Christie teamed with the songwriting and production tandem of Mitch Murray and Peter Callender. Although their first collaboration, “God Is on My Side,” went nowhere, the 1971 LP Las Vegas proved the singer’s breakthrough, generating the Neil Sedaka/Howard Greenfield-penned smash “Is This the Way to Amarillo?” (a number one hit in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, and Spain), “I Did What I Did for Maria,” and “Don’t Go Down to Reno.” Christie remained a constant of the European charts for much of the decade via subsequent hits including “Avenues and Alleyways” (the theme to the television series The Protectors) and “The Queen of Mardi Gras,” selling more than ten million records during the Me Decade. He also hosted his own BBC variety series, and in 1976 played the role of Magaldi during recording sessions for Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical +Evita.
In 1979 Christie paired with producer Graham Sacher for the blockbuster “Sweet September,” but his stardom waned during the decade to follow. He nevertheless maintained a demanding international tour schedule, and remained a regular presence on television as well. Upon teaming with producer Jack White, who previously masterminded hits for Engelbert Humperdinck and Baywatch heartthrob David Hasselhoff, Christie scored a massive comeback hit with 1990′s “Kiss in the Night.” However, he again spent a number of years on the cabaret circuit before enjoying a new wave of popularity and credibility via the 1999 single “Walk Like a Panther,” written for him by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker. The single earned Christie his first appearance on Top of the Pops in a quarter century, and his newfound hipster cachet was further solidified when the smash comedy series Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights employed “Is This the Way to Amarillo?” as its theme song. In the spring of 2005, the single was re-released to raise funds for the charity Comic Relief, and spent seven weeks atop the U.K. pop charts. After cutting the theme for Kay’s spinoff series Max and Paddy, Christie closed out the year with a tongue-in-cheek big-band cover of Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody,” which fell shy of the British Top 40
