TMZ reports that Beyonce lip-synched her performance at the Inauguration yesterday choosing to use a pre-recorded track instead of singing live, unlike Kelly Clarkson, who did sing live. Say it ain’t so, Bee?
Beyonce did remove her “inner ear” ear piece during the performance. That could have been simply because the music was too loud. I should point out that Whitney Houston also lip-synched her most famous rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl in 1991.
Will there ever be a day when I do a Lindsay Lohan story and it’s good news? It seems Lindsay has gotten into some financial trouble with the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood. According to TMZ, Lindsay claims the producers of her Lifetime movie, “Liz & Dick”, are responsible for her $46,000 hotel bill. That’s not a typo folks! TMZ says Lindsay was blowing through the mini-bar like crazy including $3100 in charges and nearly $700 in cigarettes. The hotel has even banned her until the bill is paid. Lindsay may believe that the producers should be paying, but that doesn’t explain why she hasn’t responded to the hotel’s requests since July or had someone look into it.
Lindsay, time to grow up little girl! Liz would definitely not approve. By the way, you can see Lindsay’s GIANT hotel bill here. It’s a whopper!!!
According to TMZ, after reading a poem about how much he hates Detroit, Sheen now has someone on stage asking him questions and moderating. The crowd seems much more receptive. Also, the opening stand-up comic was axed from the Chicago show after the Detroit audience booed him from the stage. Sheen is also interacting with the crowd, exchanging shirts with a man after someone yelled, “Get naked!” Thankfully, he didn’t.
During a question about his marriages, Sheen refers to ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, as that “kidnapper b****.” Ouch! That’s the mother of your children, dude!
From Twitter, someone posts that Sheen gives a shout out to Chicago PD: “I love your emblem it looks like you’re just out there whaling on bad guys.”
Richard Roeper (@richardroeper) is inside the theatre and tweets that Sheen complains about the heat on stage. “Is it me or is it like a Cambodian outhouse in a heat wave up here?” Roeper also adds that whatever you are doing tonight, “including sleeping, it’s probably more engaging than this.”
Sheen also complains about the “hooker” (my word, his was much worse) from the Plaza Hotel. He says she owes him “a watch and some love.”
The show is now on a 10-minute break. Roeper says he hopes the show actually starts after the break. Hmmm, not boding well for Mr. Sheen.
Other Twitterers are chiming in. One says the show is “as amusing as a pile of dead puppies.” Another adds, “Charlie Sheen’s Chicago [show] bombing, but not like Detroit.”
The 10-minute intermission turned into 25 minutes, but at 9:14pm, Sheen returned to the stage, according to TMZ.
Richard Roeper (@richardroeper) tweets: “Whoever this guy is questioning Sheen, he’s just awful. If you were sitting next to these two guys in a bar, you’d find another table…”
TMZ reports that Sheen says he owes Heidi Fleiss $2 million and he pays for sex because he has millions. Now if he would only use some of that money for therapy.
Richard Roeper says “amazingly” it looks like 95% of the crowd is still in the theatre.
TMZ reports that Sheen says he would go back to “Two and Half Men,” but he goes on to call the people who run the show “blood suckers.” And then he calls co-star Jon Cryer, a “rock star.” Charlie, do you really think they want you back???
TMZ says Charlie is now reading a letter from one of the goddesses. I’m not even at the show and I am bored to death.
9:53… the show is finally over. Now, Charlie Sheen, please leave Chicago and don’t come back. As God is my witness, I am done posting about Charlie Sheen.
Charlie, oh, Charlie! With all of the millions you have made, couldn’t you have hired writers to help you craft your live show instead of just winging it (as it seems you have done). Another bad night on stage could spell doom for the rest of Sheen’s tour.
TMZ reports that the Chicago Theatre may be planning extra security for crowd control tonight since Sheen’s dreadful performance in Detroit last night. TMZ has also learned that there are still 200-300 seats available per show at remaining venues. So much for the hype that Sheen was “sold out.” Additionally, TMZ reports that since Sheen’s horrible stage shenanigans last night, people are trying to unload their tickets as fast as they can.
Who’s WINNING now?
Charlie Sheen was fired today from his hit show, “Two and a Half Men.” No surprise there. Charlie’s lawyer and Charlie vow they will sue CBS and Warner Bros. No surprise there. Charlie Sheen still thinks he’s winning, according to his Twitter page. Uhm…no.
Sheen told TMZ that “They continue to be in breach, like so many whales.” Maybe CBS and Warner Bros. are in breach of contract. We have no clue what’s in Sheen’s contract, but almost every TV contract has a morals clause for talent and you better believe CBS has it in there somewhere. And Charlie, dude, you and that hooker breached that long, long ago. Which hooker? Nuff said. But you don’t think about that b/c you think you’re winning.
You probably also violated rules when you appeared on a competing network without permission (ABC, NBC interviews). That’s a huge no-no, but you wouldn’t know that b/c you think you’re winning.
Your high profile publicist who reportedly has lied repeatedly for you in the past quit on you b/c you wouldn’t listen to him (he was right, by the way), but you don’t care b/c you think you’re winning.
EVERYONE (and I mean EVERYONE) thinks you are in severe denial and need serious help. Your family wants to help you. I assume your friends do too. But you don’t care b/c you think you’re winning.
Charlie, wake up. Snap out of it. What the hell do you think you are winning?
You may have one of the toughest Hollywood lawyers around (Marty Singer), but so does CBS and it has an army of them. You may have millions of dollars, but CBS has billions. You may think you are tough, but CBS Chairman Les Moonves is tougher. You won’t win. He won’t let you win.
You will never get your show back. I can’t imagine who will want to hire you now (run, Mark Cuban, run). You have destroyed your career and what little reputation you had. What did you win? Oh yeah, a new catchphrase. Congratulations.
Christina Aguilera has done well for herself in that she did not follow the path of many child stars, including her Disney co-hort, Britney Spears. She focused on her work and sang her a** off. Since her divorce, Christina has hit a bumpy road. Her album tanked, she gained weight, her movie tanked, she botched the national anthem and now…sigh… Christina was arrested for public intoxication, along with her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler.
According to TMZ, Rutler was arrested in West Hollywood this morning for driving under the influence, say police, and Aguilera was with him in the car. TMZ says Aguilera was “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.”
Christina, snap out of it!!! You are too talented to go down this road. Britney is a train wreck. You are not!
YOU ARE NUTS! You are not cured. You are no where near cured. If cured was the last planet in the Universe, you would be in some far reaching nether world that has not yet been discovered. Need proof? You only have to read the letter you sent to TMZ responding to CBS and Warner Bros.’ decision to cancel the remaining episodes of your show. I have included it below for your reference.
SHEEN’S LETTER READS:
What does this say about (Exec Producer Chuck Lorre) after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.
Remember these are my people … not yours…we will continue on together…
(Frankly Hank note: YEP. NUTS.)
TMZ has what could be an explosive story on its site. However, consider the source: Star Magazine. In any case, Star is reporting that Britney Spears confessed to her first husband, Jason Alexander, that her current boyfriend, Jason Trawick, has beaten her. The tabloid says Alexander recorded Britney in an October 10th phone call.
First off, it would not surprise me if Britney was in an abusive relationship considering the life she has led. She doesn’t make sound decisions. There is a reason her father is still in charge of her life and finances by order of the court. But if the Trawick story is true, you can better believe Papa Spears will be giving him the boot. Secondly, what kind of a**hole is Jason Alexander to record his “friend” and ex-wife and then sell her personal, private story to the tabloids. You know he didn’t give it away for free. The things people do for fame and a buck. Makes me sick!
