Derval Mellett

Those of you who remember stayin up past midnight about 3 years ago will remember Derval Mellett from Play TV! She lit up our screens every evenin and gobshites would ring in and waste stupid amounts of money to try and guess the answer to stupid questions while she’d try to get more saps to ring in although maybe I was the stupid sap for watchin and never ringin in!

Go see Rock Of Ages

I went to see Rock Of Ages last night and have to say I really enjoyed it. Yeah there was a few characters and plots that were just thrown in and not used very much, although they got their moneys worth out Mary J’s character even though all she did was turn up and sing every now and again! Bit random but fun. The 2 lead characters played by Juliette Houghton and Diego Boneta were great and I’d give Diego one. Tom Cruise was good. Catherine Zeta Jones scared me! Overall, lots of fun! Go see!

Misha B’s single

Misha B was in the X-Factor last year as ya might remember and now she’s releasin’ her debut single. Sounds fun with a good fun video. Not sure how it’ll do though!

Nicole Scherzinger announced at X-Factor judge

It’s official at last! Nicole Scherzinger has been confirmed to take over Kelly Rowland’s slot on X-Factor. Probably best known as the lead singer with the Pussycat Dolls and Lewis Hamilton’s girlfriend, Nicole was also a judge on the American version of the show last year when she took over Cheryl Cole’s place! Oh I bet Cheryl is ragin’!

Jedward’s new single Young Love

Jedward have released the video for their new single Young Love although is it only me or does it look like it was made on the cheap?? Could be wrong but it looks like the Olympia. I actually like the song and the lads are hot with their hair down.

The Saturday’s cover Call Me Maybe in Thurles

As ya might know, Una Healy from the Saturday’s is from Thurles in Tipperary so they decided to do a gig in the local greyhound stadium. As well as performin’ all their own hits, they also had a go at Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. Sounds alright actually. I like it!

Lady Gaga’s new perfume

Lady Gaga is the latest celeb to bring out her own perfume called Fame! The description reads -

"Tears of Belladonna, rushed heart of Tiger Orchidea with black veil of Incense, pulverized Apricot and the combinative essences of Saffron and Honey drops. First of its kind, this perfume is an innovation in fluid technology it's black like the soul of fame. But invisible once airborne."

I normally wear TFB by Tulisa so wonder what this one whiffs of!

Wii Fit U

Any of yiz that read the blog regularly will know how much I love me Wii Fit and clearly I’m excited about the Wii U so can ya imagine how excited I am about Wii Fit U? It’s goin’ to be released with the console at the end of the year and ya can use the balance board and your existin’ Wii Remotes which is handy coz I haven’t the money these days to be updatin’ everything! Skinny bitch, here I come!

Me latest holiday guide is Marbella

Ah Marbella! The land of people from the southside of Dublin drinkin’ champagne and talkin’ about posh stuff. Clearly I wanted a slice of the lifestyle and off I went! I think I might be barred after it!

The last days of Lisa Left Eye Lopes

I was a big TLC fan back in the day so this is kinda sad. Around the 3 minute mark you can see the car crash where Left Eye died. The strange thing about it all was that Lisa said that death was stalking her at the start of a documentary that followed her time in Honduras on a spiritual retreat. A week before her death, a 10 year old boy stepped off the central median of the road in front of the van her assistant was driving and died. Lisa was shocked that he had the same last name as her and was convinced that death was coming. A week later, she was the only fatality when her SUV swerved to avoid a truck comin’ towards her and hit 2 trees before rollin’.

Can someone tell me what GeeGee Friends are?

I saw this in TK Maxx in Kilkenny and thought it was kinda funny. Clearly it’s gonna be funnier for people from Dublin and no one else will have a clue what I’m talkin’ about. Let’s just say it’s a dirty word for a girls nether areas.

Sharon Curley’s pregnant

This is actually HILARIOUS!! Someone made an Irish flag banner for the Euro 2012 match against Croatia with the famous quote from The Snapper on it!! If ya haven’t seen the Snapper, go get it now. It’s one of the funniest Irish movies EVER!!

Chernobyl Diaries

This looks like it could be a great movie. It’s about a group of adventure tourists who go inside the Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone and clearly all sorts of mad shit starts to happen. It’s from the same people who made Paranormal Activity so ya can imagine there’ll be loads of frights in it!

Grace Jones and her hoop

Anyone who managed to see the Queen’s diamond jubilee concert will have seen Grace Jones and her magic hoop. She’s 64 and yet she was able to sing an entire song AND hula hoop all the way through that! That’s some talent!

Catherine Zeta Jones in Rock Of Ages

I actually don’t think I’ve been so excited about a movie since The Muppets, although maybe the Avengers too. This looks AMAZIN’ though and I can’t wait to head along to Odeon (coz that’s what our Storm Cinema is now) to watch it. I want to do every number on the soundtrack on the Saturday show too!

Wreck It Ralph

Disney have released the trailer for their latest animated movie Wreck It Ralph which will be out later in the year. It stars John C Reilly and Jane Lynch and has cameos from famous video games characters such as Zangief and M Bison from Street Fighter, Dr Eggman from Sonic and Bowser from Mario. Lookin’ forward to this one although we’ll probably have to wait til February here in Ireland!

It’s been a while

…since we had some Adiemus! Just thought I’d give this a blast seein as I love it so much! Again, in case you’re wonderin, it’s from a British Airways ad from the 90s as well as a Delta Airways one AND a Visit Sydney ad! What a tune!

Earthquake in Mayo

When there’s a 4.0 level earthquake anywhere in the rest of the world it doesn’t really make the news but here in Ireland where a natural disaster usually involves a strong breeze or a bit of heavy rain, things like this make the top story on the news! The quake was 3km off the coast of Mayo near the Corrib Gas Field and of course now the locals are blamin the gas company for the earthquake!! Ireland is a strange place!

My latest holiday guide is Riga

I can fondly remember Riga as bein by far the coldest place on earth but apart from that I think it was nice. Of course you could just go read all about it by going to the link! - http://www.joannaryde.com/travel/riga.html

My parody of Loreen’s Euphoria

Wii U

I’m a big fan of Wii even though I have an Xbox 360 as well so I’m kinda excited about the Wii U which is gonna be comin out here in Ireland at the end of the year. There’s loads of deadly features that just got announced at the E3 exhibition and it looks great although not as “go bleedin mad with your mates” as the first Wii. I’d like this for Christmas!

Nicole Scherzinger for X-Factor

All the gossip around X-Factor judges at the moment means ANYONE could be joinin’ Tulisa, Louis and Gary on the panel but the latest one is that last years X-Factor USA judge and stand in for 2010 Nicole Scherzinger could be on course for a permanent roll. Probably most famous for her role with the Pussycat Dolls and for be Lewis Hamilton’s other half, Nicole was popular with the British TV watchin public although that was before she took Cheryl’s job in America.

Jedward in Baku

This is a great video of Jedward’s time in Baku, Azerbaijan for the Eurovision Song Contest. Have to say, the city looks great and I wouldn’t mind addin an Azerbaijani flag to me wall! Interestin fact is that meself and Roxxi tried to go to the Eurovision this year but couldn’t get accommodation in Baku so ended up in Croatia instead. Looks like John and Edward had a great time.

Kathryn Joosten dies

My favourite Desperate Housewives actress Kathryn Joosten died yesterday after a battle with lung cancer. She played Mrs McCluskey who I always loved in the show because of her comic timin and ability to bring a bit of laughter to strange situations. RIP Kathryn.

Fox have given a release date for the sequel to X-men First Class as July 18th 2014 even though it’ll shoot in January. All the cast from the first movie will be back as well as director Matthew Vaughan so hopefully it’s as good as the last one. The next X-men movie will be Wolverine released on July 26th 2013.

Euphoria hits number 1 in Ireland

After all the hype, Eurovision winner Loreen has gone to number 1 in Ireland, the first non-Irish Eurovision act since Nicole 30 years ago in 1982 to do it. The song has been a HUGE hit not only here in Ireland but all over Europe too and could hit number 1 in the UK this week. Delighted for her!

Justin Bieber gives himself a concussion

Poor Justin Bieber! He was performin in a show in Paris and walked into a glass wall!! LOL! He’s as cute isn’t he. He told TMZ this -

"So basically... I'm in Paris and I'm like, performing on the tallest building in Paris. There's a glass wall behind me, but there's a railing behind the glass, and so, I went to reach for the railing and I hit my head on the glass. It really hurt and I felt a little light-headed, but my adrenalin, I feel, pushed me through it and I performed my last song. After that, I went off stage and I immediately felt really weak. I was walking down the stairs and I passed out for like, 15 seconds... I feel good, I have a little bit of a headache, but I feel fine. I mean, you've got to laugh at yourself sometimes."
