While you were sleeping
Let me just start by saying that yesterday I made a mistake when I posted the aweome pictures of soldiers wearing Justin Bieber t-shirts. I went with the information I had at the time and referred to the hot soldiers as US Marines, rather than the Canadians from the RCR that they are. That silly post later became an actual silly story posted on the actual Star site. With the same wrong information. I bleeped up. And usually when I bleep up, I get mails along the lines of, "you ignorant bitch" or "what is wrong with you, you cow?" ("I hope you entire family dies of cancer" remains an all-time favourite). But not this time. So, thank you to the soldiers and retired soldiers, who, while pointing out the mistake, were all super-polite and nice about it. And now I know way more about Canadian soldier pants and how they differ from American soldier pants than I ever thought I'd know.
Demi Lovato an X-Factor judge? THR: "As the countdown to Season 2 of The X Factor continues, the fourth judge is falling into place. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that pop star Demi Lovato is closing a deal to join Britney Spears in the seats vacated by Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul after Season 1. The deal is not yet done and could fall apart, but sources say Lovato's team is in final negotiations for the job. THR had previously heard that the final judge would be a brunette, and the choice of the former Disney Channel star certainly fits that criteria. X Factor creator and star Simon Cowell is particular about the casting of his judge panels. More important, 19-year-old Lovato would bring with her a younger audience (her current single, "Give Your Heart a Break," which she recently performed on American Idol, is No. 74 on the Billboard Hot 100). Spears, while still a force in pop music, is 10 years older than Lovato. Returning judge and Epic Records chairman L.A. Reid rounds out the panel."
Dave Grohl directs documentary "Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl is getting behind the camera. Grohl will direct Sound City, a documentary about the famous Van Nuys studio where Nirvana, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses and others have recorded. The film will feature interviews with musicians and producers who recorded at Sound City over the decades as well as history of the studio. Grohl recorded at Sound City for the first time in 1991 when he and Nirvana bandmates Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic made their multi-platinum album, Nevermind there. “Documenting a personal journey beginning 20 years ago that culminates in a full circle musical reunion,” said Grohl. “Sound City is film about the truth, the craft and the integrity of rock and roll.” In addition to Sound City, Grohl, as Deadline previously reported, is also working on a comedy with Dana Gould for FX."
Goodbye Urkel People: 'While Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars" had its highs – Maria Menounos and Derek Hough got the first perfect 30 of the season! – it also had its lows ... [Tuesday] Melissa and Maks were declared safe, leaving Roshon and Chelsie to go up against Jaleel and Kym in the dance duel. After performing a pair of sweat and tear-filled rumbas, the judges made their decision. "This is not easy. Side by side you guys are pretty much equal," said Carrie Ann Inaba, who picked Roshon and Chelsie to stay. Len Goodman agreed with her choice, and Bruno Tonioli made it unanimous. "I really only thought I'd last about three dances this competition," Jaleel said as his time on the show ended, "so to get this far – I've made incredible friends, the fans have been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan ... I'm glad they saved him."
