So last night at the Much Music Awards my timeline was flooding with Miley Cyrus’s name. Sadly iDon’t have MTV 2 so iCouldn’t catch the awards show. Luckily 4 me, iHave Miley Cyrus stans on my friends list (why do iCall it a friends list? when it’s clearly a list of followers as twitter says) provided these pics. iLike Miley Cyrus and iUnderstand what she’s trying do do with her image (she wants people to know that shes not a little girl anymore and that she’s growing up) but maybe she’s trying to hard, or she’s doing something wrong…see for yourself

Just as we all figured would happen in the 1st place, Toy Story 3 opens at number one on it’s opening weekend. The film brought in $109 million, in the United States and 44.8 million overseas, which brings its actual total to 153.8 million. It is the third animated film to make over 100 million on a opening weekend, the 1st being Shrek 2 with 108 million and Shrek the Third with $121.6 million. It is also the bets debut for a Disney/Pixar film topping “The Incredibles”, which opened at $70.5 million. The Karate Kid, which stars Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, is now number 2 and has managed to pull in 29 million this week end. The weekend’s other new wide release, the Warner Bros. action tale “Jonah Hex,” bombed with just $5.1 million. And iMust say I’m actually shocked, iThought it would have @ least made it to number 3. That really goes to show you that casting Megan Fox as eye candy only, doesn’t work out too well. iMean can she even really act? She hardly had any lines in the Transformers movies, and Jennifer’s Body flopped harder than any Keri Hilson live performance. iCan bet that Toy Story 3 will manage to pull another 60-70 million by next Sunday. If it pulled in more, iWouldn’t be surprised.

Well as shocking as this may be 24 year old actress Amanda Bynes has announced via twitter that she’s retiring from acting. Her tweet said: “Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem, If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it.” “I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first”; “I’ve #retired.” Amanda’s career began at age 7 where she appeared in commercials, then she became a regular on the hit TV show All That until 2000. She then went on to star in her own sketch comedy show entitled The Amanda Show until 2002. Her film work includes Big Fat Liar, She’s the Man, and Hairspray. Her last film is entitled Easy A and will be released on September 17, 2010. iReally can’t blame her 4 retiring. This goes to show you that some people really, aren’t doing things that bring in big money for the money. They do it for the love of it. Hopefully, she’ll get back into acting in a few years, so we’re just gonna call this a long break.

So iReceived this question asking how do iFeel about the No H8 campaign. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it’s a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest. While there are many normal people who represent and don’t represent the LGBT community, there are also celebrities who are doing the same. iAm proud that people are taking a stand against this. Gay people have been discriminated against for so long, and it saddens me that the Constitution says that every man is created equal. It’s not true because if it was the protest wouldn’t be going on today in the 1st place. I’m glad that many celebrities (who are mostly straight) are defending this and are among the biggest supporters. Together we can take a stand. iJust wish that every1 could have an open mind and see things from the LGBT communities point of view. We didn’t choose this, it was simply the card we were dealt. At first iWas iDidn’t except myself and iWanted there to be a cure so bad. But iLearned that this is who iAm and iLove me. Yes it’s a hard road to travel, and yes people will never completely understand but hopefully they will try to. Check out the new PSA, a few pics below the website at www.noh8campaign.com.

Toy Story 3 has hit theaters 2 day and it’s about time. The last time iSaw a Toy Story sequal iWas in the 4th grade, and iWas missing 2 teeth (my 2 front teeth fell out…don’t talk about me). The movie follows Woody, Buzz, Mr. Potato Head, and alot of their old friends (Little Bo Peep is not in this movie…she was said to be “sold” in a garage sell between time) as they try to escape a day car center. How did they get there, well as much as iKnow you will h8 2 admit it, just wait until you go 2 the movie theater 2 see it. The film (just like the 1st 2) has already received positive reviews ! Has any one ever noticed that most Disney/Pixar movies receive great reviews and make around 50-60 mil during the opening weekend? If not imma need you 2 pay more attention ! Thoughout all of that, critics state that there are a few scenes that may scare the kids so be careful of the age of the child you are taking. Some of you guys are ashamed to say that you wanna see Toy Story 3. Your using your kids/nephews/nieces etc as an excuse so you won’t feel bad. Well I’m not. Embrace the movie ! We 90’s babies (some of you 80’s babies) have been waiting for this ! iKnow iShall be seeing it, probably not tonight though. iJust love those little aliens ! they are so cute to me !

In celebration of what would have been Tupacs 39th birthday, Madame Tussauds museum in Vegas moved the figure to Washington D.C. on June 16 where he and the Biggie statue could be reunited. The Tupac figure gives me the creepy’s. It really looks like Tupac and iSwear to you my heart dropped. It’s so life like. The Biggie figure on the other hand looks like him, but you can tell it’s wax. Madame Tussaud is very talented, she’s created many wax figurines of great actors, artists, and athletes. iCan’t tell that with Tupacs.

In a new interview with The New York Times magazine, Eminem declares that the way he looks at things now is different then hwo he used to look at themm thanks to MTV News. During the interview Eminem was asked if he’d support a gay marriage bill in his home state of Michigan. And he said yes ! “I think if two people love each other, then what the hell?” Em answered. “I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want.” Throughout his career, Eminem has sparked controversy with gay rights groups, who called lyrics on his Marshell Mathers LP homophic and hateful and they protested against his nomination at the Grammys in 2001. Alot of rappers don’t support gay marriage, and of course are homophobic. iReally don’t know why. Being gay myself iKnow for a fact that people in the LGBT community loves music. If u are an artist and u discriminate against the LGBT group you may as well hang it up. Some of your biggest fans may come from the gay community. We are people too andf hopefully people will begin to see that. I’m glad that Eminem has stepped up and stated that he has no problem once so ever with the gays and that he supports gay marriage. Maybe if Bow Wow comes out the cloest, he shall be able to accept himself and other gay people alike.

In celebration of Oprah’s magazine O 10th anniversary, The big O gave everyone associated with the magazine an iPad and $10,000. Regardless of how long they have worked there, everyone was lucky enough to receive one so even new workers got the goods. That means if you started yesterday you recieved a iPad and $10,000. And although Oprah is ending her talk show in 2011, she has no plans of ending her magazine. Congrats on the success of the magazine (that my grandma is subscribed to religiously). My grandma has to be the biggest Oprah fan in the world. To her, Oprah can do no wrong, and you know what, iThink shes right.

The numbers are in. While the Glee Casts new album debuts at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Charts with 158,135 copies, and even the Twilight Saga: Eclipsesoundtrack debuted at number 2 with 155,207 copies, Christina Aguilera’s album Bionicdebuts at number 3 with only 111,838 copies. It’s not really that bad but the record company had high expectations for the album. iHad my doubts since the failure of Not Myself Tonightbut iHad to remind myself that Christina has a very loyal fan base. Well obviously that fan base is either taking their time to purchase the album, or they just aren’t feeling it. iMentioned last week during my review that Christina has tried something new and while it’s good to reinvent yourself, it just doesn’t work for her. She gave up her slow mid tempo pop songs for upbeat pop electronica songs that just don’t fit her. The 2nd single Woohoo that features Nicki Minaj has debuted at number 79 on the Hot 100, and it doesn’t seem like it will pass the number 60 mark if u ask me. Christina is really at her best with her ballads. If she releases one of the 5 that she has on her album, not only will it help the album sell, but it will let fans know that she hasn’t reinvented herself much; nevertheless the album will still reach platinum status in due time regardless of how the fans receive the album.

So iWas on YouTube doing my daily Britney Spears session, and 4 some reason, iWanted 2 hear her telephone demo (iDon’t really like it too much but hey its a demo 4 a reason). If you didn’t know, Lady Gaga originally wrote her hit single Telephone that features Beyonce for Britney’s album Circus. But Britney’s management rejected the song and Gaga kept it for herself. I’m glad that they rejected the song for Britney becuase the beat just doesn’t work for her voice. So anyway, iCame across this video on YouTube of Britney, Gaga, and Beyonce singing telephone together as a trio. Whoever did this should be paid because it’s hot. Then it hit me. What if Gaga Britney and Beyonce did a song together? Not only will it be one of the greatest collaborations of the next 10 years, but it’ll be the greatest collboration with 3 of the most groundbreaking women in music on the same song. Check 0ut the Telephone mash-up that was very well put together and judge 4 yourself.
