Who does Sarah Brightman think she is? October 5, 2008

I was surfing a minute ago, and I came across the following promotional pictures for Sarah Brightman’s new album, “A Winter Symphony”.  She is in such hardcore denial about getting older, for real.  Not only that, but the older she gets, the trashier she gets.  Check out the awesomely fake hair, for example.

Sexy braids there, Sarah. SUPER sexy.

Ok, and guys – she’s 48 years old.  This is the bitch that “The Phantom of the Opera” was WRITTEN for.  In 1986.  I was three.  And check this out:


This is one of those pics that make you nervous, because you can't TELL if you're seeing nipple or not.  WHY?

I thought her last album cover was bad.  I mean, she has a rockin’ body, no doubt.  But she also hires people to airbrush the SHIT out of her photos.

I can’t take it for real.  And her music is CRAP.  I’m sorry – I really tried.  And I like musical theatre.  In fact I went and saw Spring Awakening on Broadway today.  It won the Tony in 2007, and I’ve been dying to see it since I moved here.  Hunter Parrish, who plays Silas on “Weeds”, is playing the lead right now – and he did a fabulous job and is actually a really talented singer.  Who knew!  He’s so cute too.  I just can’t quit him.  

(This is him…)

Back to the point.  Sarah Brightman is working really, really hard for such terrible, pointless “pop” music.  

Do like her?


The truth comes out about Sharon Stone! September 30, 2008 is reporting that the judge in Sharon Stone’s custody case has released the “Tentative Statement of Decision”, and it basically says that Sharon Stone is a terrible mother!  Check it out:

“Among many things, the judge says, “Mother appears to overreact to many medical issues involving Roan.” In one case, the judge describes Stone believing Roan had a spinal condition, but “there was no evidence to support this allegation.”

And then the court says, “Another example of an overreaction is that Mother suggested that Roan should have Botox injections in his feet to resolve a problem he had with foot odor. As Father appropriately noted, the simple and common sense approach of making sure Roan wore socks with his shoes and used foot deodorant corrected the odor problem without the need for any invasive procedure on this young child.”

The judge differentiated very distinctly the difference between Bronstein and Stone, saying, “Father has championed for Roan’s well-being out of, what appears to this Court, nothing less than the unconditional love for his son. Unfortunately, and for unexplained reasons, it appears that Mother did not involve herself to the extent she could or should have in this process … Mother has attempted to put up roadblocks to Roan’s getting help, or has decided against participating in his care.”

The judge goes on: “Unfortunately, the problem caused by Mother’s overreactions is painfully real for this child.”

There are many other specifics that we won’t publish. 

The judge says at one point, responding to Stone’s argument that she put her career on hold for Roan, “If Mother has, in fact, limited her career to make herself available for Roan, she has done little to make this evident to Roan, his school or this Court.””



WHAT?  She kind of seems like she’d be crazy in ‘real life though’, doesn’t she?  She’s a bit strange and plastic and a total, unabashed cougar – but in a fatal attraction kind of way.  Sometimes I’m think to myself, “Damn, Sharon – you look good for 50!”.  But then it comes out that she tried to botox her child’s feet. Say what?
