My new favourite blog

My home girl Divalicious has started bloggin and it makes for great readin! She talks all sorts of celeb gossip and stalkin and it’s a great little read! Think she’s gonna make it big one day as a tabloid hack! Here’s hopin!

New Gorillaz video DoYaThing

I always love the Gorillaz videos! This one is great. They’ve used real life backgrounds for the animated characters. Andre 3000 and James Murphy feature on the track too and get their own “Gorillaz” I want them to make me in Gorillaz form!

Dead woman climbs out of coffin

I don’t really have any words for this! From Digital Spy

A 95-year-old Chinese woman, who was thought to have died, has shocked residents by climbing out of her own coffin.

Li Xiufeng was discovered motionless by a neighbour on February 17, a fortnight after suffering a head injury from a fall at her home in Guangxi Province, reports The Mirror.

Chen Qingwang assumed she had passed away in her sleep, saying: "She didn't get up, so I came up to wake her up.

"No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions. I felt something was wrong, so I tried her breath, and she has gone, but her body is still not cold."

Xiufeng's son then made arrangements for her funeral, which included a coffin being placed in the home for friends and family to pay their respects.
The grandmother was placed inside the coffin on February 19, but it was not nailed down ahead of the funeral to be held on February 24.

However, the day before the funeral, Qingwang was shocked to discover the coffin was empty with no corpse inside.

"We were so terrified, and immediately asked the neighbours to come for help," he said.

Villagers in the town of Liulou later found her in her kitchen cooking herself a meal.

She reportedly explained: "I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat.
"I pushed the lid for a long time to climb out."

A local hospital explained that Xiufeng had an artificial death, where a person has no breath but the body remains warm.

"Thanks to the local tradition of parking the coffin in the house for several days, she could be saved," a doctor said.

However, due to the local tradition, all of Xiufeng's belongings had been burnt, leaving with the 95-year-old with nothing at her home.

This movie is gonna be deadly! Can’t wait until it comes out in May. Scarlett Johansson looks like one mean bitch and ready to kick people in the head which I like! PLUS the Hulk is in it. Gonna be epic. WOO!

A real life gypsy communion

I forgot I had these. They’re pictures from an actual real life communion and not just something from Channel 4. Someone sent these to me but I can’t remember who it was so if it was you, remind me! Personally, I love the whole extravagance that the travellers go to for big events. Think we could all learn a little something from their way of life. If anything, it’s nice to feel like a princess every once in a while!

Really would like to see her in action again sometime so would be amazin to see the return of Siobhan Broadway! We should start a campaign! This was the first year in the Olympia too!

SCARLET when you’re caught on camera behind a newsreader

HILARIOUS! Pay attention to the person in the background of this video. She tries to get out of the way when she realises she’s in the shot!

New Avengers poster

Here’s the new poster for the new Avengers movie I’ve been talkin a bit about on the blog. Accordin to Digital Spy they’ve decided to call it Avengers Assemble in the UK which is a bit of a stupid name if ya ask me. I hope they don’t. I think they need a few more women for the sequel. Poor Scarlet Johansson looks a bit lost.

This is epic!

They sent him a one off box and now they’re bein contacted by people who want them to make them for real! I want me own cereal!

John Leguizamo to play Del Boy?

Well this is a strange one alright. John Leguizamo who ya might know as Chi Chi from To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar has been chosen to play Del Boy in the remake of Only Fools And Horses that will be appearin on ABC later in the year. To be honest, I don’t know how the Americans are gonna do justice to the best comedy programme of all time. To me there’s only one Del Boy and that’s David Jason!

BBC weatherman says the C word on air!

SCARLET for this chap. Instead of sayin sunshine he says “c**t” and then tries to go back to sunshine. It’s kinda fun but cringy for the poor chap at the same time. Its a word I don’t like to be honest. Imagine me not likin a swear word! Fuck that!

Alternative Miss Ireland Countdown - 1987

It was in 1987 that the very first AMI was held and thats bleedin years ago! Back then there was no Olympia and bein gay was still illegal! Isn't that mad! It was held in Sides Nightclub on Dame Street and Linda Martin and Johnny Logan hosted it! It was won by Miss Isle. This is the only picture I have! 1987 was years ago though wasnt it!

Glee do The Wanted

I heard they were gonna do Glad You Came by the Wanted a few weeks ago and wasn’t too sure what I’d think about. I’m still a bit unsure after hearin it a few times. There’s also a version of Nicki Minaj’s Fly mixed with R Kelly’s I Believe I Can Fly in this weeks episode which sounds a bit messy. To be honest, hopin Glee picks up a bit or else it won’t last very much longer.

Alternative Miss Ireland countdown

The countdown to the final Alternative Miss Ireland is on and I’ve decided to do a bit of stuff on the blog over the next few weeks to celebrate it.

Remember tickets are nearly sold out and are available from Ticketmaster and the Olympia Box Office! Great cause and always a great night!

Waterford Riots!!

Yes you read that right!! There was a RIOT here in Waterford on Tuesday night after the Sash concert. This video is taken less than 100 metres from where I live in the nightclub district in Waterford. Usually the place is a bit mad but whenever there’s anything on with the students, it gets a lot louder and whoever thought it’d be a good idea to do roadworks on the main crossroads durin RAG week must be a bit slow!

Ski-Through Starbucks

This sounds great, although maybe a bit confusin coz I don’t know how you’re meant to hold a coffee cup when you’re holding a ski pole. There’d be spilt coffee everywhere. It’s in Squaw Valley in the USA. Sounds like fun. Don’t eat yellow snow.

When Sealions Attack!! (Shakira!)

This is a bit odd. Shakira, singer and superstar, got attacked by a sealion last week in Cape Town, South Africa. She’s since explained the event on her Facebook page. Which is nice of her! And fair play to Super Tony, whoever he is!

"I happened to see some sea lions and seals. I thought to myself how cute they were, so I decided to get a bit closer than all of the other tourists and went down to a rock trying to pet them... Suddenly, one of them jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me. Everyone there screamed, including me. I was paralyzed by fear and couldn't move, I just kept eye contact with it while my brother 'Super Tony' jumped over me and literally saved my life, taking me away from the beast."

90’s kids show Alex Mack gets a pg15 DVD release

This is kinda funny. The British Board of Film Classification has given kids TV show Alex Mack (The one where she gets superpowers after a chemical spill) a PG15 rating! Here’s why -

"One episode in this TV series contains a scene in which a child character hides inside a tumble drier. The presentation of this behaviour is comic and no negative consequences are shown which would warn young viewers of the potential dangers of hiding in such appliances. While fatal incidents of children trapped in washing machines or fridges are rare, there remains sufficient cause for serious concern. The distributor indicated that they would be happy to accept a higher certificate rather than cutting the episode. The TV series is rather dated and would not have much appeal to a young audience when compared to current children's TV programmes. In addition, as the work was being targeted at an adult 'nostalgia' market, children would not be the 'natural' audience. The BBFC decided - given the work's history, the company's willingness to accept a higher certificate and that the work was not being aimed at children - to pass it '15' without cuts.”

Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney

This must have been hard for Jennifer who’s had her fair share of tragedy in the past. Whitney had only died the day before and was said to be one of Jennifer’s inspirations. A very fittin tribute in my opinion. It’s all very sad isn’t it.

Nicki Minaj’s Grammy performance

I’m a HUGE Nicki Minaj fan so was dyin to see what she was gonna do at the Grammys and she didn’t disappoint. Doin some form of religious take on her song Roman Holiday, although clearly all the Lady Gaga lovers are all “Oh its rippin’ off Gaga” which I don’t see to be honest. In case ya don’t know, Roman is a male alter-ego created by Nicki. She’s pretty much EVERYWHERE at the moment which clearly I’m delighted about!

Ouch! Jennifer Ellison cuts her head with her skate!

This must have been sore, although not that Jennifer made anything of it! She just kept skatin and finished the routine. I don’t really watch Dancing On Ice but its me dream to appear on it! Call me ITV!

Cher Lloyd sounding like a little brat

Cher Lloyd is a confusin character. Ya can’t deny she has a bit of edge that makes her stand out as a bit of a teeny pop icon but nowhere near as clean cut as the likes of Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez. She sounds like a bit of a bitter betty as you can see from this article from Digital Spy.

In an interview with Real Breakfast this week, Cher was asked whether or not she’d ever consider performing a duet with Cheryl.

She replied: “Maybe if she sings live with me.”

The ‘Want U Back’ singer added that it would be a “challenge” for Cheryl who wouldn’t have the “nifty little button to press.”

When the host asked whether Cher was referring to things like auto-tune, she replied sarcastically: “What, oh no? Never, never ever!”.

But the youngster’s attacks weren’t finished there.

Cher also said Louis Walsh needed to leave the X Factor, if only to get some rest! “Maybe he should go on a holiday. Have a holiday for a few years! Have a break Louis, you work too hard,” Cher commented.

“He’s the only one that’s stayed; he might as well go as well and bring someone else in.”

Mermaids in Zimbabwe

This is a bit mad! The reservoir workers are afraid of mermaids!!!

From Digital Spy

Construction workers are refusing to build new reservoirs in Zimbabwe after being left terrified by mermaid sightings.

Government minister Samuel Sipepa Nkomo said that labourers have been so spooked by the presence of the mythical creatures in towns Gokwe and Mutare that they would not return.

"All the officers I have sent have vowed not to go back there," he told a parliamentary committee.

According to the country's Herald newspaper, mermaids are apparently present at other sites and can only be scared away through a combination of sacred rites to appease spirits and traditional beer.

The reservoirs are crucial to providing Zimbabwe's population with adequate water and boosting agricultural production.

A belief in mermaids is said to be relatively widespread throughout the country.

Whitney passes away

Very sad to see the news about Whitney which I’m sure everyone’s heard at this stage. She left a great legacy of music and will never be forgotten. Here’s my favourite.

Ireland’s Eurovision hopefuls

Here they are! The 5 songs that will be hopin to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan! I really wanna go if someone wants to buy me a ticket!

Ya have to love Americans!

This video is hilarious. It was filmed in Olympia, Washington at lunch time in a high school. Great laugh!

Cheryl to choose between The Voice and X-Factor

Oh the drama. Cheryl’s always in the news. If she isn’t havin relations with someone from the So Solid Crew, she’s bein used in some form of Reality TV show tug of war. I wanna know who these “insiders” are!

From Digital Spy

Cheryl Cole is reportedly feeling “tortured” by having to decide whether to join The X Factor with Simon Cowell, to side with Will.i.am on The Voice.

Both stars have offered Cheeza huge roles in the upcoming shows, and either one is sure to boost her career.

Will.i.am said earlier this week he wanted to get Cheryl to perform on The Voice in order to “p*ss off” Simon, but sources claim Cheryl’s back on terms with the music mogul now.

“Cheryl was devastated by what Simon did to her last year over US X Factor but that’s ancient history now and she doesn’t bear a grudge against him,” a source tells Reveal magazine this week.

Meanwhile, there’s likely to be some empty seats on this year’s X Factor judging panel that Cheryl could fill.

But the source continues: “That said, she’s still hugely loyal to Will. He had her back when everyone else was standing by to watch her fall, and he gave her the strength to get through the storm.

“Will totally rebuilt her confident because it was shattered until he stepped in.”

The insider added: “Choosing between the two most important men in her life – her ex Ashley Cole aside – is like torture for her. She simply cannot do it.”

Carmen Electra to sub for Amanda Holden on Britain’s Got Talent

Delighted about this! I LOVE Carmen Electra. Ever since the days of Baywatch. She was also involved in the Pussycat Lounge before the group turned to music. Ya might remember Carmen was in one of the Scary Movies too.

Madonna at the Superbowl

This is all kinds of epic! I think every single number I do on a Saturday night in Dignity should be like this from now on. Except the bit where she falls off the bleachers in Music!
