Lily Allen Turned Down $100 Million Gig

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Performances, Pop,

Lily AllenLily Allen feels like an "idiot" for turning down a gig worth "$100 million."

The "Hard Out Here" singer was asked to perform on the website, Second Life, which she would have been paid in the "virtual" currency, Bitcoin. The singer, who is believed to be worth more than $10 million, turned down the offer, despite Bitcoins now selling for about $100 each.

Lily took to Twitter to reveal her mistake at the weekend, posting, "About 5 years ago someone asked me to stream a gig live on second life for hundreds of thousands of bitcoins, 'as if' I said. #idiot #idiot [sic]."

The 28-year-old star, who gave birth to her second child, Marnie Rose, in January last year, came back to the music industry at the end of 2013, recording a version of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" for the John Lewis Christmas advert. It spent two weeks at number one last month.

iTunes ios mislabeled

Awkwaaaard. Looks like proper capitalization of iOS didn't make it onto the code redemption page in iTunes. All joking aside, it's just odd to see an error like this one from Apple.


Awkward TV: Wrong Person Named Winner of Australia’s Next Top Model

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Reality, Video,


This is something even could learn from.

What should have been a moment of celebration for the winner of Australia’s Next Top Model turned into a moment of embarrassment for everyone involved—especially for the host.

Although Sarah Murdoch was initially told 19-year-old Kelsey Martinovich (the girl seen speaking first in the clip) had won the competition—Amanda Ware (seen in red) was the actual winner.

Cue the video to the :50 mark to witness the awkwardness kick in.

Chris Brown Embarrassed Over Attack

Chris Brown in courtChris Brown is “embarrassed” about his assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The “Run It” singer has spoken out about his humiliation at losing his temper with the 21-year-old beauty in an attack which left her covered in bruises and bite marks and has revealed he still can’t look at the photographs of her injuries.

“It’s unbearable to view. It’s something that I have to live with every time they show it. I’m embarrassed that I couldn’t control my anger at that time. It’s a reminder that I have to be in control of my own actions and not anyone else’s. My actions today and in the past shape my future.”

Chris, who has to stay at least 100 yards away from Rihanna for the next five years, has now vowed to “learn from” his behavior.

“Domestic violence is totally wrong whatever the circumstances, no exceptions. I’m only 20. This is a bad mistake I made, but one that I’m not denying nor running away from. I don’t believe I should let it shatter my life. I’m owning up to the wrongs I’ve done and am working on myself. I’m trying to find the positive amid the negative. I’m urging people to learn from what I did and not take the same route. If I do that - act as an example - then I feel I have no reason to go through the rest of my life with my head hanging down.”

Quote of the Day: Miley Cyrus on Her Mistakes

Miley Cyrus on the set of her Vanity Fair shoot

“My mistakes are kind of a little bit harder because they are in front of millions and millions of people… I get to go through that and I get to learn. It’s hard sometimes to smile about it, because half the time, yeah, it does suck to have to go through that. But also it makes you want to try harder the next time when I know that little girls look at me and say I’m their hero.”

- Teenage phenomenon/provocative picture taker Miley Cyrus on making mistakes (because “trying harder” after the suggestive Vanity Fair shoot clearly translated to pole dancing).

OK! Magazine - Cover

The press are always the first to act when a celebrity makes a mistake. We love nothing better than seeing the perfect tumble into a big pile of oops. But when the press makes a mistake regarding a celebrity…that’s when things start to get ugly.

Look on the left-hand side of OK! Magazine’s latest cover, which refers to Jessica’s little sis as “Ashley” Simpson instead of . Uh-oh.

More Reasons Why Regis Philbin Should Retire

A few months ago, I listed 8 reasons why I thought Regis Philbin should start making his retirement plans. Now I would like to add a #9 and #10.

#9. Back in May, the talk show host was talking about the recent American Idol finale when he said, “What happened to the past winners? Where are they today?”  When told by co-host that they come on their show “all the time,” Regis responded, “Really? I haven’t noticed.”

#10. Philbin, who actually went to the premiere of yesterday evening, sadly referenced Heath Ledger as ‘Keith Ledger’. (You can see that clip from today’s show below.)


Sex and the City: Boom in Frame?

Sex and the City movie

I sincerely hoped this issue was only present at my screening and could be blamed on a lazy projectionist not wanting to work the graveyard shift for two theaters jam-packed with estrogen - but according to my Google search, I’m afraid not.

At the midnight showing of the new movie at the Waterford Lakes Plaza in Orlando, FL, viewers were awed by not just the return of the Fab Four, but by several occasions of boom microphones slipping into frame during the film.  At one point, even walks right up to what is clearly the top end of a Kino light or a flag on a C-stand.
