Got Milk? Probably not if your Chris Brown. The promising career of Chris Brown has come to a halt after allegedly attacking his girlfriend Rihanna over the weekend. The “Run It!” singer has been dropped from his “Got Milk” campaign, a rep from “Got Milk” said, "The Milk Mustache campaign is taking the allegations against Chris Brown very seriously. We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Mustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens. Mr. Brown's ad was launched last fall and is scheduled to end this week."
Also, the Wriggly Gum Company has recently suspended Brown’s campaign until things are sorted out. Brown is due in court on March 5th.
As for Rihanna, she has canceled her upcoming show in Malaysia to go home and recover with friends and family in Barbados.
It seems that anyone who previously appeared on ‘The Hills’ is entitled to their own show. Whitney Port has ‘The City’, Brody Jenner has ‘Bromance’ and, now Kelly Cutrone is getting her own show on Bravo. Cutrone is the owner of fashion PR Company, People’s Revolution who employed Whitney Port on ‘The Hills’ before sending her off to “work” for DVF. Kelly signed an eight episode deal with Bravo. The show will be produced by Magical Elves, the same producer of ‘Project Runway’. A source told The Post that the show will focus on “strong women in the workplace.”
New York Yankee slugger, Alex Rodriguez, recently in the spot light for his alleged affair with Madonna, has finally faced the allegations that he tested positive for steroids. Yesterday (Monday) he told ESPN that during his three years with the Texas Rangers he did use performance enhancing drugs. "When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day," Rodriguez told ESPN’s Peter Gammons in an interview in Miami.
Add Joaquin Phoenix to the list of celebrities who lament their heartthrob status. You know, those reluctantly handsome A-listers who are burdened with beautiful features which distract them from their artistic pursuits. (Jude Law once complained that he was being denied roles on account of being too handsome.) After previously announcing that he’s through with acting, Phoenix has now informed Britain’s celeb rag “The Sun” that maintaining a well-groomed image was a trying task. "People have called me a sex symbol in the past, but it's very much an effort," Phoenix said.
Move over A-Rod. Madonna’s newest boy-toy is no longer the steroid-swilling Yankee slugger, but a 22 year-old Brazilian model named Jesus Luz. (Aside from being offensively handsome, Jesus is also ultra-practical. His name, for instance, is tattooed to his back for easy access.)
We reported about the couple spotted recently getting cozy at Manhattan eatery Macelleria after meeting during a sexed-up photo shoot in Rio for W magazine. We mentioned Madonna being so impressed by Jesus that she asked him to follow her on her South America tour – we are mighty impressed by Madge’s new mister as well…
It’s nice to know that at 50, the Material Girl’s libido is still alive and kicking.
A second child was born to Elin Nordegrin, aka Mrs. Tiger Woods, on Sunday, February 8th 2009. This time, it’s a boy named Charlie Axel Woods.
Tiger posted a message on his website earlier today saying that both his wife and the baby were doing great.
For those of you more interested in Tiger Woods’ golf game than his ability to produce offspring, Woods has stated that he looks forward to returning to competition, possibly as early as the Accenture Match Play Championship on February 25th.
Everyone is of course reporting that R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested Sunday night by Los Angeles cops for allegedly beating up a woman; insiders identified the victim as his superstar girlfriend Rihanna.
Sources said Brown beat pop sensation Rihanna, 20, after they fought in his car after a gala party.
"She got out of the car to walk home. He got out to stop her," said the source. "Things got physical. He hit her, possibly more than once. She had multiple bruises."
A security guard at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles told the Daily News Sunday night that he saw Rihanna being taken for treatment at the hospital. "She's been released," said guard Rodderick Brown.
Michael Phelps isn’t the only athlete drawing some negative press this week for his marijuana habits. Oakland Raiders running back Justin Fargas (or, as he calls himself in the video, J-Far) appeared in a since-removed video on the website Worldstarhiphop.com with Yukmouth to help the bay area rapper promote his Smoke-A-Thon contest. The noble goal of the competition is to determine once and for all which of the invited rappers can smoke the most weed within a set time period. In the video, which can no longer be viewed on the site (or anywhere else at the moment) Fargas inanely rhymes, “We got the Yuk rules in effect at the Crib, you know what I’m sayin’? It only goes down when Yuk’s around.”
While doing an interview on the popular Los Angeles radio station, KROQ, Christian Bale apologized for his R-rated onset rant during the filming of his new film Terminator: Salvation. The perpetually short-fused actor claimed that it had been a particularly intense week of shooting and that his passion for what he does often has him very much on edge. Nevertheless, Bale confessed that he had no right to act as he did.
"The thing that I really want to stress is I have no confusion whatsoever. I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that . . . There is nobody that has heard that tape that is hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it. It is inexcusable. I hope that that is absolutely clear."
In my humble opinion, it’s about time someone stepped up to fill Marlon Brando’s shoes as that belligerent actor who screams at everyone on set.
