It's back...on Broadway?

It's back...on Broadway?

Dirty Dancing: The play–yes, there’s a play–may come to Broadway after having success elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad.  We still think no one compares to the original baby (pun fully intended).

HSM: We’re seeing High School Musical tonight!  We’re seeing High School Musical tonight!  WE’RE SEEING HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL TONIGHT!  Can you tell we’re excited?

NYT: The New York Times had quite a scare yesterday after a “suspicious substance” came in the mail.  Though the lobby was temporarily closed and some people “decontaminated,” an investigation concluded the powder was not actually hazardous.  But if it’s the media that keeps on being targeted, we’re kind of scared for our future.

Magazines: The no-brainer cover this week was the Madonna-Guy Richie divorce.  Too bad that means none of them have any originality.  But which one will sell the most?

Usher: Will be the only one to perform on this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Lucky for him?  Bad for ratings?

TV Fashion: Some critics are questioning if TV shows–particularly teen dramas–are doing us any favors by promoting expensive lifestyles that are, in reality, largely out of reach given the state of the economy.  But isn’t that part of the point of escapism? Why focus on what we don’t have when we can spend 60 minutes losing ourselves in what others do?  It can be quite fun.

Angelina: Told Vanity Fair now that she has 6 kids, she might stop making movies.  No big loss there.  Another gem from the interview: the kiddies are starting to ask why mom and dad aren’t married.  Yep, such a great example they’re setting.

Nelly: How about this for a new type of boy band: Nelly, T-Pain, Akon and Pharrell.  Nelly says it’s in the works.  We say we could do without.

Ed Norton: With rumors of a Fight Club musical, Norton brings up one important point: “Brad can’t sing.”  Ouch.

SIZZLED OUT: Ciara

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor will have two-and-a-half boys of his own soon?  His wife is having twins!

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Madonna: So it’s true.  Their reps have released a joint statement.  Divorce will proceed.  Settlement not yet reached.  What we want to know: so did she really have an affair with A-Rod?

Rolling Stone: The over-sized mag is going on a diet.  Starting with the Oct. 30th issue, the magazine will appear just like all the other glossy mags out there.  They save money, we get more pages.  Good for everyone?

Janet Jackson: Her rep is saying the mysterious illness was a case of bad migraines.  Um, okay.

DWTS: Cloris Leachman, 82, is still in the competition.  We still think this can only end badly.

AMA: Among the nominees for the American Music Awards: Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Lil’ Wayne and Taylor Swift.  Jimmy Kimmel will host for the 5th time.  Guess people aren’t sick of him.

Beyonce: Will be giving fans a multiple choice with her new album: a 17-track double disc or an 11-song version.  Smart economical move?
