Almost everyone can remember the footage of Al and Tipper Gore passionately kissing at the 1993 Inaugural Ball. Unfortunately, it seems as though the fire has dwindled and the two are going their separate ways.
“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.”
“This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.”
Maybe there’s still a chance that the two will reconcile, they did say ‘separate’ and not ‘divorce.’
Looks like the “Octomom” might be the new inspiration for PETA’s latest advertisement. The organization is willing to pay Nadya “Octomom” Suleman to endorse the spaying and neutering of pets.
Michelle Cho, the special projects manager for PETA, sent a letter to Suleman’s lawyer explaining why endorsing would be a great opportunity for the mother of eight.
It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats,” said Cho.
Now why would Suleman endorse this? It’s more of an insult than anything…Come on PETA! And why do I get the feeling that if she says no, they’ll be going to Kate Gosselin next…
Lady Gaga tweeted this gorgeous interpretation of her new music video “Telephone” if you saw the video, then you understand why Gaga and Bey are *ahem* intertwined like that. The piece was done by an artist named Yamino and this artist is definitely very talented and creative! As an artist myself, I have to say I truly admire Yamino’s work!
In case you missed it: Here is some behind-the-scenes footage of the making of “Telephone”.
Former Olympian Marion Jones is now an official member of the WNBA team Tulsa Shock. Jones was officially introduced as a member of the team on Wednesday, March 10. Jones spent six months in prison for lying to federal prosecutors about drug used and fraudulent checks.
This is what Jones had to say during her press conference:
“The word redemption is not in my vocabulary,” Jones said at a news conference, flanked by team president Steve Swetoha and coach Nolan Richardson. “I’m a competitor, I want to play against the best in the world, and I know that I will be doing that.”
“I think when I even started to think about this 10 months ago, I know how much the game has grown from the time that I played,” Jones said. “And that became even more of a challenge for me, because I know that although I know certain things and played a certain way, that it’s 10 times faster, that the athletes are 10 times more skilled.”
WNBA president Donna Orender had this to say about Jones and her past:
“This is a tremendous, real-life story of a person who made a choice that was not a wise choice, but is saying listen, ‘I’m going to be a role model, I’m going to showcase what I’m going to do with the rest of my life,”’ Orender told The Associated Press. “I join the rest of America in wanting to watch this story unfold.”
I’m sure people will watch Jones play in her first game, but I doubt she’ll create a frenzy.
After 17 days of smiles, tears, sadness, injuries and triumphant victories, the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics finally came to an end last night, February 28, 2010. The ceremony was filled with performances by Michael Bublé, Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette,Neil Young and more. There were even appearances from a giant inflatable moose and beaver. The final medal standings had the United States in first place with 37 medals, Germany in second place with 30 medals and Canada in third place with 26 medals. Overall, the Olympics were quite enjoyable, but the closing ceremony left something to be desired.
