Saturday Fluffernutter: Amy Winehouse doing Bond; Britney mess;
The nutty stories from the fluffy world of celebrities.
Amy Winehouse has been rumoured to have been offered the theme song in the next James Bond movie: Quantum of Solace. However, apparently Winehouse has to prove she’s drug free in April before she will be given the job. This artist must be drug free policy goes a long way to explaining the dismal Bond themes the past number of movies. Amy Winehouse, clean or no, couldn’t possibly give a worst theme than Madonna did for Die Another Day, even if she has the title Quantum of Solace to work with. Wonder if Paul McCartney would have passed a sobriety test before penning Live and Let Die?
In other Amy Winehouse news, she was refused a Visa to enter the United States this week so she could attend the Grammy’s in Los Angeles tomorrow night. She did eventually receive the Visa, but too late to make it to the awards. No fear, however, as she is going to appear via satellite from London.
Neither Guns and Roses, nor Keith Richards have been asked to do the theme song to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Britney Spears has been involved in a terrible saga this week, as courts are deciding who will be her guardian. She is 26 years old and her father has been given control of her legal and financial affairs as if she is an 80 year old Alzheimer’s patient. It may be time for a complete redefining of the word ’sad.’
Led Zeppelin story of the week, courtesy of Ramble On. AT 5:00 AM Toronto time on Wednesday, the media began reporting the Led Zeppelin would play the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee this June. It hit many media sites, including some of the most respected music journals (as well as this site). By 10:00 AM somebody spotted that the Bonnaroo artist page was advertising not Led Zeppelin, but Lez Zeppelin, and all girl Led Zeppelin tribute band. Oops!
Heath Ledger’s autopsy results were released this week: he died of a lethal combination of prescription and over the counter medications. The DEA is now investigating to see if Ledger was over-prescribed medication. Ledger died January 22nd in New York. Conversely, a coroners report has reported that Brad Renfroe, who died Jan. 15th, succumbed to a heroin and morphine overdose.
Ledger’s death has apparently shook up Hollywood, and party girl Kirsten Dunst has checked into rehab. A source has said that she’s “not doin well,” and “that the Heath Ledger thing put people over the edge.”
