Saturday Fluffernutter – all the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities.
Britney Spears returned to the stage with her new Circus tour in Louisiana this week The early review: not good. No audience engagement and, according to People magazine, “given that Spears probably doesn’t do much live singing either, it left a definite chill in the air.” Ouch.
Morkian funny-man Robin Williams was hospitalized with “heart issues.” The 57 year old comedian was in Florida to perform his one man show “Weapons of Self Destruction,” when he complained of shortness of breath.
The tour has been postponed and Williams will have an aortic valve replacement surgery. Best wishes and Godspeed to Robin Williams.
Fifteen year old Dakota Fanning is progressing her career toward adulthood by taking on the role of Cheri Currie in the upcoming Runaways biopic. It’s a nice transition role from child star to adulthood, as Currie was a fifteen year old when she joined the infamous LA band. A child herself, Currie none the less strolled the stage in garter and stockings singing songs of teenage rebellion and sexuality.
The movie will also star Twilight’s Kristen Stewart as Runaway guitarist Joan Jett.
