Last night, celebs and those orbiting their stars, were on hand at The Wiltern in Los Angeles for the launch of DJ Hero. Anyone that had difficulty doing the whole pretending to be a rock star thing, can now simulate the skills of DMC Champs like The X-Ecutioners, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, or DJ Octo Arms. ← That’s a made up name, but aspiring turntabalists feel free to thief.more..
From could be to reality, last Thursday, Taraji P Henson was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; look for her in the Best Supporting Actress category. The next morning Taraji was interviewed on The Early Show on CBS. She was ‘knocked out’ when the Oscar nominations were announced.. “I was comatose. ... I have a great group of friends, and they knew that I was gonna be angst. And they took me out the night before for a fabulous dinner. And then we went out for music and dancing just so I could have a light night and not think about it. And the tactic worked, because I got home. I was wiped out. And I was knocked out.”more..
Jill Marie Jones attended singer, Tank’s birthday party wearing this crazy looking outfit. I like the pieces she wore, if she had worn them separately. Wearing them all together makes this whole look very confusing, and odd.

Henson plays his mother.
Ok. That’s explainable. She’s his surrogate mother, and her performance is the talk of the flick.more..
Last night Tyler Perry premiered his newest film “The Family That Preys” at Loews theater in New York. The movie is an original screenplay with a familiar feel. I really want to dig into dude for his predictable plots, but I can’t do that when he’s giving so many actors and actresses work they wouldn’t find any place else in Hollywood.
Not much in the way of pics this time: let’s hear what they have to say.more..
