Jenna Kim’s Fake Rumors 6/29/09

Let’s Review – What a week! So many different kinds of people died. A super hot model/actress, a noseless king, a legendary voice and that guy who shouted at me when I was half asleep in front of the television. And of course, Jeff Goldblum. Yikes. What’s going on? I Can’t Hear You – Do as I’m doing and ignore the fact that another plane crashed in the Ocean last night. I’m flying this weekend. Thankfully over no oceans. I really don’t want want to crash, it’s so cliche these days. And can you imagine crashing in Oklahoma? Gross. Life’s a B…. – Madoff is in prison for 150 years or 21 dogs years. Time sounds better in dog years. Not that I feel bad for him. The real victim here is his wife who now because of her husband’s wrong doings has to sell her $50,000 fur. I’m not sure how she’ll be able to forgive him. You can find the fur on e-bay. The current bid is $4.50. Dude, Really? – Simon Cowell wants up to $144 million a year to judge American Idol contestants. So do I but it ain’t never gonna happen. Come on Simon, really? That seems a little excessive. What are you going to do with all that money? Unless you need the money to create Spice Girls the Next Generation, Five II and get a little surgery to fix the man boobs, I think you can afford to take a hit in your salary. Actually, Simon recently said that he would negotiate for about $75 million a year as long as he...

Sometimes a legend dies…

…goodbye Jeff Goldblum. We’ll miss you. Ok, ok, Jeff Goldblum is still alive BUT that was, what I thought, an hilarious Twitter rumor started yesterday after MJ passed. Just in case you missed it… MICHAEL JACKSON is DEAD. Mark Sanford is lucky because no one cares about him anymore. And poor Farrah Fawcett has been upstaged by Jacko. You think he could have waited and died a few days later. RUDE. Do you think Michael will come back to life in time for his concerts in London? I sure hope so. Anyway, I ran out of time to write today and I am about to leave work and I really just want to go home and watch a movie because the weather is a total beeeeeyotch. I love you guys. Really. I do. Stay you....

Mid Week Pop Music Pick Me Up 6/24/09

Somethings tells me this group is from Sweden. Why? Sweden loves Abba and this pop group loves singing Abba songs. “A”*Teens…Abba Teens…get it? Their first album was dedicated to Abba remakes. Though the only scene when you might listen to their version of “Mama Mia” would involve DDR or an old Now That’s What I Call Music CD at a sleepover when you were 12. Or maybe that’s just me. Eventually the group branched out and sang a few of their own songs as well which is actually when those of us who watched Disney Channel growing up were introduced to their song, “Upside Down.” It’s my personal favorite. Any song that references dancing on the ceiling (thanks Lionel) is a personal favorite. Oh Sweden and your glorious pop. Abba, A*Teens, Ace of Base. They’re obsessed with the two boy, two girl combination. To each Country his own. Americans love a pop group that consists of five boys or five girls. Mess with that winning format and you will never reach the top of the pop group list. Why do you think 98 Degrees failed to keep up with NSYNC or Backstreet Boys? They needed that extra member to complete the perfect five part harmony and the classic “‘V” dance formation. Duh. Enjoy A*Teens. They broke up years ago so their few songs are all we have left....
