Former 1980s pop star Boy George may be singing a sad tune in August as he fulfils his court-ordered community service cleaning the streets of New York.
The singer, DJ and creator of the Broadway musical Taboo will be issued a shovel, broom, plastic bags and gloves before being sent out for his five days of court-ordered service, sanitation spokesman Vito Turso told the New York Daily News for its Monday editions.
"This is the epitome of community service," Turso said. "It's not like he's going to be working in an air-conditioned office."
The 45-year-old British-born artist, whose real name is George O'Dowd, could be assigned to any number of neighbourhoods in what the sanitation department labels District 3, including popular tourist areas such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Nolita or parts of the Lower East Side.

"After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the LA County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said, and I apologize to anyone who I have offended.
"Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health."

TMZ has learned that Mel Gibson went on a rampage when he was arrested Friday on suspicion of drunk driving, hurling religious epithets. TMZ has also learned that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department had the initial report doctored to keep the real story under wraps.
TMZ has four pages of the original report prepared by the arresting officer in the case, L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy James Mee. According to the report, Gibson became agitated after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway and told he was to be detained for drunk driving Friday morning in Malibu. The actor began swearing uncontrollably. Gibson repeatedly said, "My life is fucked." Law enforcement sources say the deputy, worried that Gibson might become violent, told the actor that he was supposed to cuff him but would not, as long as Gibson cooperated. As the two stood next to the hood of the patrol car, the deputy asked Gibson to get inside. Deputy Mee then walked over to the passenger door and opened it. The report says Gibson then said, "I'm not going to get in your car," and bolted to his car. The deputy quickly subdued Gibson, cuffed him and put him inside the patrol car.
TMZ has learned that Deputy Mee audiotaped the entire exchange between himself and Gibson, from the time of the traffic stop to the time Gibson was put in the patrol car, and that the tape fully corroborates the written report.
Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, "You mother fucker. I'm going to fuck you." The report also says "Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me."
The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "Fucking Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"
The deputy became alarmed as Gibson's tirade escalated, and called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, "What the fuck do you think you're doing?"
A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"
We're told Gibson took two blood alcohol tests, which were videotaped, and continued saying how "fucked" he was and how he was going to "fuck" Deputy Mee.
Gibson was put in a cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, and after a few minutes tried manipulating his hands to unzip his pants. Sources say Deputy Mee thought Gibson was going to urinate on the floor of the booking cell and asked someone to take Gibson to the bathroom.
After leaving the bathroom, Gibson then demanded to make a phone call. He was taken to a pay phone and, when he didn't get a dial tone, we're told Gibson threw the receiver against the phone. Deputy Mee then warned Gibson that if he damaged the phone he could be charged with felony vandalism. We're told Gibson was then asked, and refused, to sign the necessary paperwork and was thrown in a detox cell.
Deputy Mee then wrote an eight-page report detailing Gibson's rampage and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt it was too "inflammatory." A lieutenant and captain then got involved and calls were made to Sheriff's headquarters. Sources say Mee was told Gibson's comments would incite a lot of "Jewish hatred," that the situation in Israel was "way too inflammatory." It was mentioned several times that Gibson, who wrote, directed, and produced 2004's "The Passion of the Christ," had incited "anti-Jewish sentiment" and "For a drunk driving arrest, is this really worth all that?"
We're told Deputy Mee was then ordered to write another report, leaving out the incendiary comments and conduct. Sources say Deputy Mee was told the sanitized report would eventually end up in the media and that he could write a supplemental report that contained the redacted information -- a report that would be locked in the watch commander's safe.
Initially, a Sheriff's official told TMZ the arrest occurred "without incident." On Friday night, Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told TMZ: "The L.A. County Sheriff's Department investigation into the arrest of Mr. Gibson on suspicion of driving under the influence will be complete and will contain every factual piece of evidence. Nothing will be sanitized. There was absolutely no favoritism shown to this suspect or any other. When this file is presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, it will contain everything. Nothing will be left out."
Gibson's rep Alan Nierob tells TMZ: "We are unaware of any of the information you mentioned in your email pertaining to a police report."

Introducing the newest celebrity UN Goodwill Ambassador.
I love Steely Dan so I thought this was pretty funny and since Owen Wilson hasn't been very funny lately it made it even more funny.
I'm glad you all enjoyed The Friendly Giant Clip.
For those of you who weren't familiar with this awesome show.
Here's a little synopsis from cbc.ca:
A guitar-playing chicken hangs in a sack on a castle wall while a giraffe with blue spots sticks his head in through a nearby window. They are, of course, Rusty and Jerome, there at the invitation of Friendly Giant, an affable father figure in a medieval costume. Together the three were some of the most enduring characters in the history of CBC children's programming.
A creation of Bob Homme, the program began at a small commercial TV station in Wisconsin in 1954. Four years later Homme moved the show north to Canada and the CBC. Originally there were two puppeteers - one each for Rusty and Jerome - but soon Rod Coneybeare, a CBC radio veteran, was operating both.

Fans of Beyonce Knowles have formed a petition demanding she reshoot her new music video because it's not good enough. Those who have added their signatures to the letter handed to her label Columbia Records are angry about the production of the promo for "Deja Vu," Knowles' costumes and steamy love scenes with the singer and her rapper boyfriend Jay-Z.
It reads, "The video is an underwhelming representation of the talent and quality of previous music video projects of Ms. Knowles. The editing causes one to get dizzy and disorientated. The dancing is erratic, confusing and alarming. Her outfits are unbelievable and ridiculous. The sexual themes between the duo are alarming and show unacceptable interactions between the two."Via Starpulse

So, I get home from work today and notice a couple comments on my blog that don't really make a lot of sense. I follow my site meter to where the comments are coming from and much to my dismay it appears that someone left a comment on someone else's blog speaking on behalf of"Bullet Poof Bracelets" (I kid you not, they didn't even spell it right) they basically accused this other person of ripping off the last two posts of mine. Anyone can clearly see that this isn't the case as the other person even posted before I did. Plus, I think 1.3 million blogs have posted the Carson Daly and Paula Abdul pictures (they were hard to resist)
The person accused was none to happy and who could blame them. So they proceeded to tell this busy-body where to stick it.
I left a comment under this exchange explaining that I didn't know who this person who made the accusation was and I would appreciate it if whoever they were that they wouldn't speak on my behalf etc. I also noted that I felt it was a frustrating situation that I'd nothing to do with.
I honestly thought that would be the end of it.
It then turns out this weird person who started all of this shit went back and left another comment dissing this poor person's blog, spouting off like an idiot, being extremely rude and they made it sound as if it were coming from me! Nobody mentioned anything about the explanation I had left, they all just dove in with the antagonizer. Back and forth, back and forth.
I am not confrontational in the least. And what's ironic is, I've had posts ripped off verbatim in the past and I didn't get into an argument about it. Now a person goes to someone else's blog starts shit that has nothing to do with me or this other person and now I'm in a fight about it.
Oh and of course this persons loyal readers aren't too happy either. They're coming here to report back about how much my blog sucks, my name sucks, I suck.
My poor blog, she never hurt anyone (except a few fragile celebrities) and now she is tainted.

Miss Pressly doesn't think models should act.
She doesn't seem to have a problem with white trash hos breaking into the acting world, just NO MODELS!
"Cindy Crawford can't act. I mean, she's a sweet lady and she's beautiful and gorgeous. She is a great businesswoman, though. Elle MacPherson too. I'm not going to take that away from them. Paris, even before anything ever happened to her, always had plenty. No matter what her lack of talent is, her real talent is being a great businesswoman."

Supermodel Naomi Campbell reportedly caused $54,000 worth of damage to her boyfriend's yacht following an argument with an Italian chef. The 36-year-old destroyed furniture and fittings on Badr Jafar's luxury boat, which was moored in Viareggio harbor in Italy, writes British newspaper The Sun.
She is alleged to have lost her temper when the chef's tomato, mozzarella and dried ham starter with white wine failed to please Campbell. And when the cook retaliated by shouting back at Campbell, she reportedly began throwing items around in a fury. An onlooker tells The Sun, "All hell seemed to break loose. All you could hear was shouting and screaming in English. There was the sound of plates being broken. Some of the crew later said the kitchen was a complete mess and the curtains and cushions had all been ripped apart." Campbell is currently fighting three lawsuits, all filed by former employees who claim the supermodel assaulted them.

Goes to Heather Locklear.
Finch? What the hell is that about? You can't tattoo your boyfriend's name on your ankle so
you use his annoying character's name from that annoying show that nobody liked.
What's worse, it looks like a moldy brain is growing out of the oh so original heart.

Melanie B is rumoured to be dating Eddie Murphy.
The former Spice Girl was introduced to the actor by mutual friends in Los Angeles, leading a romance which began three weeks ago. It seems that the relationship is already moving quickly - the 31-year-old has already told pals that she believes he could be "the one".
"Within a few days of it all beginning she had his name tattooed on her hip," a source told The Mirror. "I've heard he had a matching one with her name. It all seems a bit fast but that's just Mel - she's very impulsive. She's been saying how great he is and how she's never met anyone like him."

I don't know if I believe the tattoo nonsense but I can see this union making sense.
She is definitely as close to a man that Eddie will allow himself to get
(publicly of course) so this couple just might work.
Apparently people are outraged that Gwen Stefani has a $790 Gucci baby carrier.
My question would be; What did you expect? Her socks are probably $75 each, she sleeps on $5000 sheets for Christ Sake.
What did you think she was going to carry her baby around in, a paperbag?

Mickey Rourke once had an unusual way of dealing with his anger - he cut off his finger. The actor was taken to the hospital and had to endure an eight-hour surgery to save his finger. Rourke is no stranger to violence -- he trained as a boxer in his youth and took a five-year break from his acting career to take the sport up professionally.
The eccentric star says, "I cut my little finger off because I thought I didn't want it. I was angry about something so I decided I didn't need the end of the little finger on my left hand. I didn't cut it off completely - it was still hanging on a tendon - and an English friend, Gary, carefully carried the end of it as we went to hospital to try to rectify the situation. It took the surgeon eight hours to sew it back on. I still can't bend it properly."
Did I just read that right? I cut off my finger because I thought I didn't want it.
Too bad the doctor didn't tell him to go sew his own goddamn finger back on.
What a freak.
That's right according to Paris, it was all an act people.
How could we have been so gullible?
"So before I started the show (The Simple Life) I thought I'd make a character like the movies Legally Blonde and Clueless mixed together, with a rich girl all-in-one. Even my voice is different from me in real life. It's a character I like to play. I think its carefree and happy. The public think they know me but they really don't."
Nice try honey.

BEER-swilling Baywatch star David Hasselhoff was booted out of Wimbledon — because he was “steaming drunk”.
A guard led him from the tennis tournament’s grounds after a series of clashes with security staff.
FIRST, the 53-year-old actor had a blazing row outside Centre Court. Guards would not let him in because he did not have a valid ticket.
THEN he was banned from press and players’ bars as he tried to get another drink.
Hasselhoff, who has fought a long battle with booze, yelled at staff: “You should let me in. Do you know who I am? I’m The Hoff.”
Security chiefs ordered Hoff out. One guard said: “He was steaming drunk.”

"It's frustrating, because sometimes, when you are attractive, people don't acknowledge that you are talented as well. "I mean, I'm a songwriter, I'm a producer, I have a strong voice, I'm a dynamic performer. Sometimes people forget that."
