Snoop Dogg Changes Name to "Snoop Lion"

Yup, that's me!
Are you guys sick of this photo yet?

Seriously, WTF?
Snoop D-O-Double G has changed his name...and persona.
At a press conference on Monday, Snoop told reporters that he was rechristened to Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest. He supposedly had a spiritual awakening in Jamaica this past February, which makes sense of the Rastafarian priest christening.
According to the Washington Post:
I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion, he told reporters, according to news.com.au I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there.

Snoopy says as a result of his renewal, his new album will be a reggae record as he finds rap no longer a challenge.
The Dogfather supposedly believes he's Bob Marley reincarnated.
Hmm....this explains the plethora of Bob Marley photos on Snoop's instagram.

Mariah Carey New American Idol Judge

Mimi fans....take a moment.

The singer tweeted:
@MariahCarey: It's gonna be so much fun working on . As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! --MC

Fox says Mariah Carey is joining the cast of American Idol as the new judge. According to the Associated Press:

 Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly announced her signing to a meeting of the Television Critics Association on Monday, and then put Carey on speaker phone to confirm the deal.
"I am so excited to be joining `American Idol,"' she said. "This kind of all just happened really quickly." Earlier this month, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez said they were leaving "American Idol" after two years as judges. Carey had been courted by "Idol," and as one of music's best-selling singers she could bring the star power it needs to compete with rivals like "The X Factor," which recently added Britney Spears and Demi Lovato as judges. Earlier Monday, veteran "Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said there's a slender possibility that Jennifer Lopez might return. His reasoning: Since she told "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest she was 99 percent sure she was leaving, that means there's a 1 percent chance she won't, Lythgoe said Monday. He said he hoped that was the case, although Lythgoe also told a meeting of the Television Critics Association that he thought the show should be freshened each season with new judges. Lopez's representative, Mark Young, said July 13 that she's leaving "American Idol," following rocker Steven Tyler out the door after two years. That leaves original judge Randy Jackson. Fox did not immediately respond to Lythgoe's remarks.

There you have it, guys! I actually may tune into an episode of A.I. to see what off-the-wall comments Mimi will say to all the contestants.

Throwback Monday

Police Sketch of Christian Grey


Told you this book is amazing, even doctors are falling for Christian!
KCBS/KCAL in Los Angeles reports:
A Scientist in Britain has finally put a face to the name of the Lothario in E.L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey using the same software police use produce suspect sketches.

Dr. Faye Skelton of the University of Central Lancashire used descriptions from 12 women who have read the racy book trilogy to come up with the sketch.
The women describe Christian Grey as having the Patrick Dempsey’s eyes and Brad Pitt’s jawline in addition to features from 10 other famous faces including Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum and David Beckham.

This is not how I imagine Christian when I'm reading the book!

What do you think?

Crazy for '50 Shades of Grey'

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have something to confess....I have now joined the millions (yes, millions) of women who are obsessed with the fan-fiction book by E.L. James, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.
I purchased the series after it being highly recommended by a few good friends. One day while perusing the many aisles of Target, I came across the book....then right next to it a box-set of the trilogy. Since your girl likes a deal....I bought the trilogy box set because I thought, I'm probably going to read all three anyway to see what the big deal was about.

Well, low and behold, 9 days after my purchase I'm half-way through the third and final book. It's amazing! I don't want to give too much away because I want you all to go and get it so we can talk about it! It's more than just mommy porn or BDSM. It's not the most well-written series, nor will it be considered one of America's greatest works of literary art....but it's a damn good story!

22 year old Anastasia Steele falls in love with 27 year old billionaire Christian Grey. As their relationship progresses very fast in a matter of weeks...Ana is introduced to the many shades of Grey!
My friends and I have never been so engrossed with a book before...well, besides The Rock's biography. You become so involved with the main characters: Christian and Ana. Some parts of the book, I've had to stop. Put the book down and sit and absorb the intensity I just read about....and no I'm not talking about just the sex-scenes.

Movie Update according to the New York Observer:

Fifty Shades of Grey, is officially going forward, with the studios involved hiring two producers for the project. While that doesn’t guarantee a movie any time soon, it’s doubtful that Hollywood is just going to sit on this project and let it die a slow death on a backlot when there’s all those box office sales and merchandizing money to be made.
While the Twilight fan fiction was already snatched by Universal and Focus Pictures back in March for $5 million after a huge bidding war, the studios had yet to name anyone attached to the project. Yesterday, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti were announced as the film’s producers, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The duo previously had worked together on The Social Network.
There’s still an opening slot for a director and someone to adapt the script, so the Twitter campaign Bret Easton Ellis has been running for the project might not totally be in vain. Though it’s doubtful that either the studios or the producers will let him run with a Lena Dunham/Ian Somerhalder combo for Anastasia and Christian. Or if the movie plans to beat a triple-X rating.

There are rumors on who will/should play the main characters. Here are my choices:

Christian Grey: 'Social Network's' Armie Hammer

Anastasia Steele- Emma Stone

Kate Kavanagh- Blake Lively
Elena "Mrs. Robinson" Lincoln- Kim Cattrall

What do you think?

Laters, baby!

New Music: Pop That- French Montana ft. Rick Ross, Lil' Wayne and Drake

I love this song and am so happy a video has finally been made for it! I cannot wait until they play this song in the club! Definitely going to be my summer anthem this year.
However, I do feel a little out of shape considering the numerous close-ups of all the video vixens.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Welcome Baby Penelope


Kourtney and Scott welcomed their second child on Sunday, Penelope Scotland Disick. Of course, we already know baby Penelope will be cute because Mason is just adorable!

I find the firstname precious, though I'm not quite sure what's up with the Scotland? Possibly a nod to her daddy, Scott!?

Who knows, I'm sure it'll be revealed sooner rather than later.

Mazel Tov to the happy family!
