Katy Perry Found Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’ Video Offensive

Katy Perry Found Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’ Video Offensive

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Katy Perry found Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’ video offensive … Oh, My God!!!

The ‘I Kissed A Girl’ hitmaker is ‘sensitive’ about the Christianity referencing promo – which features Gaga putting rosary beads in her mouth while dressed as a nun – and insists even her fiancé Russell Brand cannot get away with blasphemy.

Katy – whose parents are both Christian pastors – said: ‘I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen.
‘Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f◦◦◦ing a crucifix.’

Just as religion bashing makes her mad, the 25-year-old pop star is also infuriated by celebrities who claim they don’t read gossip about themselves on the internet.

She added to Rolling Stone magazine: ‘Any artist who says they don’t Google their name is a big fat liar. It’s a little gross when you look at other celebrities’ twitter feeds and see them posting about something they read about themselves on a Google Alert, it’s like, ‘Uh, maybe you should stop Googling yourself every day, the world does not spin around you.

Global tribute marks year since Michael Jackson’s death

Global tribute marks year since Michael Jackson’s death

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Michael Jackson fans across the world have paused to remember the man they called the King of Pop today on the first anniversary of his death.
Thousands have filed silently through the gates of Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles, where Jackson’s body is entombed in the mausoleum.
In Jackson’s hometown of Gary in Indiana Jackson’s mother Katherine has unveiled a monument in the front yard of the modest home where her children grew up, while in Japan hundreds of people have lit candles in Jackson’s memory.
Jackson died on June 25 2009 at age 50 just before he was to begin a comeback tour.

Dr Conrad Murray who allegedly provided Jackson with a powerful mix of sedatives has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in relation to the death.

Michael Jackson’s boyhood hometown plans anniversary vigil

Michael Jackson’s boyhood hometown plans anniversary vigil

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

The childhood hometown of Michael Jackson is planning a tribute on Friday at his former house to mark the one-year anniversary of his death, and the mayor says his mother is among the people expected to attend.

Gary Mayor Rudy Clay says Katherine Jackson will attend the event along with her granddaughter, Genevieve Jackson, the daughter of Randy Jackson. The event will include speeches, performances and a candlelight vigil.

“We expect thousands to show up,” said city spokeswoman LaLosa Burns.

Workers at the house on Tuesday said Katherine Jackson wanted the house spruced up for the event. She was in the city 48km southeast of Chicago for several days recently and planned the renovation, Clay said.

The flowers, balloons, stuffed animals and signs that covered the front lawn for weeks after Jackson’s death from an overdose of sedatives are gone.

The tiny house already has a new roof, a fresh coat of white paint, newly poured concrete along the walkway and driveway and is surrounded by a black wrought iron fence.

New sod was being installed and some bushes were awaiting planting.

“She wanted all of this done,” worker Nathaniel Donald said. “People from all over the world come here and she wanted it fixed up.”

“It looks nice,” said Arthur Houser, an 81-year-old retired trucker who lives several blocks away.
The house – and its address – are widely known because The Jacksons released the album 2300 Jackson Street in 1989.

The family moved to the West Coast after the Jackson 5 struck it big with the release of their first album. The Jackson 5 played two concerts at West Side High School in Gary in 1971.

The only other time Jackson returned to his hometown was in 2003, when plans for a Michael Jackson Performing Arts Centre in the city’s downtown were announced.

It was never built.

Jackson’s father and city officials announced plans earlier this month to move ahead with plans to build the performing arts centre and a museum, but many in the city have their doubts whether it will ever be built.

Chuck Hughes, executive director of the Gary Chamber of Commerce was a member of City Council in 1995 when talk about the performing arts centre was first discussed with the Jackson family.

“It was politics that squashed it,” he said.

Clay said the city hopes to make the memorial an annual event.

“This is where it all started,” he said. “Our love for the Jackson family and Michael began before they were famous and it is still entrenched.”

Michael Jackson’s hometown is moving ahead with plans for a museum and arts centre dedicated to its famous resident.
