Christina Aguilera moves summer tour to 2011

HollywoodNews.com: Christina Aguilera is going to have a lot of explaining to do. She is set to perform on “American Idol” tomorrow night for the finale to promote her upcoming album “Bionic,” which is due out June 8th. Therefore, her fans have been highly anticipating her summer tour to hear some new tunes from the lady, but now they’re going to have to wait an entire year!
Live Nation has released a statement today that reads: “Christina Aguilera’s summer tour has been moved to 2011 due to prior commitments that the singer had made to her film, Burlesque, and to the promotion of her new album, Bionic. The singer felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour date this wasn’t possible.”
Does she really need more time to rehearse or is this due to low ticket sales?

Courtney Love dumped by millionaire b.f. over Kate Moss fling

Hollywoodnews.com: Karma has finally smacked Courtney Love in the face.
After blabbing that she slept with Kate Moss, her millionaire lover Andre Balazs, who owns a lot of hotels, has cut ties with Love, 45.
It has been a week since he broke up the Hole singer according to The Sun.
A Sun source reveals, “Andre was very fond of Courtney, but found some of her behavior embarrassing.
(Andre finally realized this?)
“And after a series of rows last week – including one over why she felt the need to ‘out’ Kate – he told her it was over.”
No word on Balazs felt about Mr. Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale.
Now friends are worried about Courtney’s mental health. Gosh, we stop worrying in the states some time ago. That’s just the way Courtney Love is.

When Celebrities – Like Bret Michaels – Show True Grit, the Whole World Benefits

By Stacy Jenel Smith
hollywoodnews.com: Will Bret Michaels make the live finale of “Celebrity Apprentice” tonight – exactly one month and two days after the brain hemorrhage that could easily have killed him? And within days of his “warning stroke” and the discovery of a hole in his heart?
If anyone can pull off such a feat, rock and reality star Michaels is a good bet. He learned to battle through physical challenges from the time he was six and was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
“When you’re five to eight years old and you find out you’re going to have to take insulin for the rest of your life, its pretty depressing. It’s heartbreaking,” he recalled in an interview a couple of years back. “But I just looked at it and embraced it. I said, ‘I’m still going to go out and enjoy my life. I’m still going to make music and ride motorcycles and get tattoos.’ I just gotta work a hell of a lot harder to take care of myself.”
Michaels says being able to go to a camp for diabetics as a child made all the difference in his world. “My mom was one of the counselors and later I was a counselor at a diabetic camp in Pennsylvania. I go back there every so many years to say ‘This is how I did it. This is what you gotta do.’”
He’s also actively raised funds for kids to go to such camps in various ways. In 2005, an unorthodox campaign — with the mark of Michaels’ creativity now familiar to “Apprentice” fans — involved selling a controversial t-shirt that had a photo of him shirtless on the front and the words, “Bret Michaels Diabetic,” along with the number of injections he’d taken as of the day they shot the picture – some 253, 210. And then the words, “Fear Nothing: Survive It.”
Michaels is displaying that same kind of courage and grit getting through his current crisis, and in so doing, he’s serving as an inspiration to millions.
When so often the media is focused on negative role models of the celebrity world, it’s worth noting that there are dozens of personalities, like Michaels, who set examples of courage and perseverance every year. Speaking of those who’ve faced diabetes as just one example, we have the likes of Halle Berry, Mary Tyler Moore, Gary Owens and [...]

Tammy Lynn Michaels to Melissa Etheridge: “Please stop telling the press [the split] was mutual”

By Greg Hernandez
hollywoodnews.com: With remarkable candor, Tammy Lynn Michaels has opened up about her break-up with Melissa Etheridge.
She does so not in an interview or in a new book, the former Popular star poured her feelings out in a poem she has posted on her blog Hollywood Farm Girl that reveals far more than Etheridge did during her recent appearances promoting her latest album.
The former couple share two children and Tammy’s hurt is quite raw.
Here are some excerpts:
things can be a long time coming
to one
and smash the hell out of
another:
hit and run
not even staying to clean up the mess
disappearances into the
hourglass-shaped wood with strings
never to finish a fight
never interested in clarifying,
making sense, making it right
even finishing the fight
more interested in making something rhyme
time after time after time
and later angsting that you and me, WE
it didn’t work out
you evolved
you needed to be happy-
but really… you withdrew your hands
from family and intimacy
to pluck those strings more
‘d rather hear 10,000 fans
screaming my name in worship
than hear my wife harp on me
about my family intimacy issues too,
you know?
which one is going to get me harder?
easy answer
sideswiped and left mangled
up to my eyes in toilet training toddlers
and sounds of a guitar wailing
letting me know
you would probably leave me soon
i know those heart-ache wails by now
i even told you it was a break up album
and you laughed at me
you laughed and laughed
i heard fearless and i got sick
“that’s your break up song with me”
i said to you
you got so angry with me, remember?
and stomped off
so thank you for telling an interviewer
that you WON’T censor me on my blog
(i thought i was to say nothing, my bad)
i was so unhappy thinking people dare look at me
and think that i consider
a marriage and forever to be
nine years or six years or whatever
and i gave up on everything
and just walked off
never is that me… nope, never….

New Grad Keke Palmer Hits the Gas, Career-Wise

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
hollywoodnews.com: Keke Palmer reports she’s just graduated from high school — and she’s awfully relieved. ‘Hoo! Thank God. That was a lot of pressure on my back. Now it’s one less thing to worry about,’ declares the 16-year-old star of Nickelodeon’s ‘True Jackson, VP’ series — and the ‘True Jackson: Trapped in Paris’ movie that debuts on the channel tonight (5/22).
Keke, who rose to fame with acclaimed dramatic work in such fare as ‘Akeelah and the Bee’ and ‘The Wool Cap,’ tells us she may be stepping before the cameras in her first big screen teen comedy in coming weeks. She credits ‘True Jackson’ with giving her a place to show her comedic abilities. ‘Trapped in Paris’ even has her doing a rap song ‘on an airplane. It’s a really fun scene,’ she says.
She has other feature work on the horizon as well. But her main focus for this summer is her first album for Interscope Records.
‘It’s pretty much done. I can’t wait to get out there with the music. I’ve been very, very happy with response so far,’ says Keke. She did much of her recording during ‘True Jackson’ series shooting, heading to the studio after a day’s work was through.
