Ricky Martin, Perez Hilton Join Celebrities In T-shirt Protest O










Capitalizing on Celebrity Star http://heidiufsock.inube.com/blog/3671107/kim-kardashian-kanye-west-sue-over-leaked-proposal-video/ Power Celebrity endorsements tend to be hit or miss in many cases, depending on the celebrity's true commitment to the product or brand. In the case of Beamz Interactive, Flo Rida's endorsement proved to go above and beyond anyone's expectations. The best selling digital hip-hop artist in the world not only collaborated on the Beamz by Flo and filmed a series of videos to promote it - he used the product in concerts and music videos, as well as mentioned it in interviews. Interested investors can watch the entire video interview on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c5UlVFklro Former Jefferson Starship guitarist Craig Chaquico has also been an avid supporter of the Beamz product line. In addition to using the technology in his own concerts, he has actively endorsed the product in a number of media outlets. <br>Source: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/celebrities-endorse-beamz-interactive-ahead-of-key-holiday-season-2013-11-05







This is an easy decision for a manager you cant let your client promote a crappy product. Publicist Ronn Torossian of 5WPR also chimed in on the subject telling Fox News,. When things go wrong, naturally celebrities wont want to be outspoken. But dont expect them to be quiet for long, he said. They will stand up again as soon as President Obama asks them to. Maybe the American people shouldn't have to be "sold" on a product that was intended to help them. Once the discovery was made that ObamaCare was not all good, celebrities got quiet. <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/celebrities-don-t-have-obamacare-s-back

When author Buzz Bissinger recently revealed his surprising addiction to buying Gucci items, we realized there were a number of other people in the limelight who have some distinct predilections. And although it's tough to find celebrities who have confessed outright to their strange dependencies (beyond drugs and alcohol, that is), these stars with exuberant habits seem to be verging close to addiction. 1. & 2. Tiger Woods and David Duchovny Both Tiger Woods and "X-Files" and "Californication" actor David Duchovny, have come under scrutiny for their sex addictions which led to divorces for both men but other celebrities like Russell Brand and Kanye West have also been waylaid by their irrepressible libidos. Characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts, people with a sex addiction have an inability to control sexual behavior, even when its risky or harmful. While sex addiction is not recognized by theAmerican Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,experts have long acknowledged clear cases in which people ruin their lives because of sex, said Dr. <br>Source: http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/arts-culture/stories/8-celebrities-who-have-strange-addictions

Participating celebrities will share photos of themselves wearing the T-shirts on their social media platforms, encouraging followers to do likewise. The HRC says all net proceeds from shirt sales will go to a fund supporting gay-rights efforts in Russia. "We stand with Russia's LGBT community and their allies," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "We are committed to doing as much as we possibly can to support their efforts to repeal this heinous law." According to the HRC, other celebrities joining the T-shirt campaign include Jonah Hill, Jaime Lee Curtis, Kristen Bell, Fergie, Kelly Osbourne, Kevin Bacon, Doutzen Kroes, Anthony Bourdain, Tim Gunn, Todd Glass, Amanda Leigh Dunn, Ana Matronic, Olympic swimmer Craig Gibbons, NBA basketball player Jason Collins, country singer Maggie Rose and soccer players Jozy Altidore, Lori Lindsey and Megan Rapinoe. The law banning "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors" was enacted in June.

While the glue is still wet, draw in a slit down the center of the glue with the back of a makeup brush, and wait for it to dry. I mix the white color with a very fair skin tone color from Makeup Forever's Flash Palette, to give it that pale look. Apply all over the face, including over the eyebrows and scars. Eyes: Use a purple or blue eye shadow below the bottom eyelash line to create "sad" eyes and also add a little shadow to the crease of the eyelid.

Hollywood Must Think Bigger About China, Says Producer Janet Yan










Im told someone named Carlos. Im http://rochgilj.livejournal.com/6997.html going with Carlos the Jackal. And busted celebrities kim kardashian honoree Quentin Tarantino was bemused to get an award for Django Unchained, a film that nobody had actually seen since he wasnt finished making it. Its kind of strange to get an award while youre still in the editing room for a movie, said Tarantino. Now when my editor wants to cut down a long section of dialogue I can say, You want to take a line out of my award-winning screenplay? (Then again, a few months later Tarantino won the screenwriting Oscar for Django, this time from a bunch of people who actually had seen the movie.) This years show has been essentially ignored by every Hollywood trade publication except the Hollywood Reporter, which has an ownership tie to Dick Clark Productions and which has run a steady stream of exclusives. But the event will get its live-streamed carpet, and itll get press because honorees include actors McConaughey, Bullock, Roberts, Gyllenhaal, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Michael B. Jordan, Sophie Nelisse, David Oyelowo and Lupita Nyongo; directors Steve McQueen, Lee Daniels and Richard Linklater; actor-screenwriters Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke; producer Jerry Weintraub; the band Coldplay (whose Chris Martin will perform a song from the next Hunger Games movie); and the films American Hustle (costumes and makeup), Monsters University (animated film of the year) and Pacific Rim (visual effects). <br>Source: http://movies.yahoo.com/news/hollywood-film-awards-silly-season-arrived-194246014.html

Ill hold the ribbons and give them to him as he needs them. So she kind of came in and saved the day for me. The result of Molinas efforts, of course, his new film.

Burnett also has made a name for himself in Hollywood, producing such popular reality shows as "Survivor," "The Apprentice," "Shark Tank," and most recently, the singing competition,"The Voice." "We are very excited to be working with 20th Century Fox to release 'Son of God' as a major motion picture," Burnett and Downey, the movie's producers, said in a statement. "We responded to an overwhelming demand for 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' to be seen as a shared experience on the big screen. The result is a beautiful stand-alone movie. It's the story of Jesus for a whole new generation." Phil Cooke, a Burbank, Calif., filmmaker, media consultant and author, says Christians are perfect target group for the film industry. "Hollywood bends over backward all the time to court very small interest groups feminists, environmentalists, people who are gay but there are more than 91 million evangelical Christians in the U.S., which makes us the largest special-interest group of all," Cooke said.

"I've never seen so much talk about things with so few results. But that's going to change," Yang, named one of the 50 most powerful women in Hollywood by the Hollywood Reporter, told Reuters during a visit to China. "It's two different systems trying to come together, so a lot of dating and few engagements and marriages but probably more on their way." Despite an import quota, Hollywood movies have dominated China's box office - until that changed dramatically this year. In the period from January to June, domestic films outperformed imported ones by 65 percent. That was a major reversal from the same period last year, when proceeds from imported films almost doubled those of domestic productions. The stakes are high.

As body ages, Jackie Chan longs for Hollywood's full embrace









Hollywood's African-American film renaissance



"I hope the audience, after they say, 'Jackie, that's a double!,' they forgive me," Chan said in his trademark broad-grinned and animated style. "Then I can continue (my career) because poor me, nobody in Hollywood hires me to make a 'Kramer vs. Kramer' (or) like 'Sound of Music' - actually I'm more? info… a pretty good singer - and nobody hires me to do this kind of film," Chan said, referring to the 1979 family drama and 1965 musical, both Oscar winners.

TURNED DOWN 'INTERPRETER' Chan has already added "dramatic actor" to his resume with the 2011 Chinese historical drama "1911" about the revolution that overthrew China's final imperial dynasty.
