Look! I learned how to screen capture just for you guys! This is directly from Adam Lambert's Twitter page, which is currently causing a frenzy. And I have to say...I AGREE!
I was one of the poor, unfortunate souls who waited in line on Christmas day to see Les Miserables. I waited in line so long that I almost ate my entire medium popcorn before the movie even started. With no munchies to distract me, my attention was very focused on the movie. Anne Hathaway was amaze-balls. But Russell Crowe was so bad that it completely distracted me from the movie! A good, emotional production, ESPECIALLY a musical, is supposed to suck you in, but all I kept thinking was, This was a huge production with a very large budget...they could have casted anyone they wanted, so why did they waste that major role on him?? I just couldn't figure it out, and my attempts to do so kept pulling me right out of the moment and into the theater where all I could think about was my empty basket of popcorn. MmmmMMmm....popcorn.
Lastly, it's not like Lambert isn't qualified to say these things. He's an incredible singer and a very talented entertainer, which is probably why people are freaking out about it. Too bad he wasn't in this movie. God, that would have been amazing. Next time, musical gods, next time.
At Kanye West's concert in Atlantic City last night, he asked the audience to say hello to his baby mama and pointed to Kim. Naturally, Twitter blew up with the "is he serious?" tweets and Kanye's PR team soon confirmed it. Kim Kardashian is indeed having Kanye West's baby. How funny would it be if their kid wanted nothing to do with the spotlight or being famous? That would be hilarious!
1) Be more silent (ironic for a radio DJ, right?) - I tend to react too quickly, or answer things too quickly in conversation. I want to learn to relax and just *chill*...and let there be space............. between............... thoughts.
2) Be more active - I made a rule at the beginning of December 2012 that if my destination was less than 30 minutes by foot (and since I live downtown, most things are), that I had to walk. And if it was more than 30 minutes by foot but less than 30 by bike, then I have to bike. I've already lost 5 pounds just from making that one, simple change. And, I genuinely enjoy the walk! This new life-activity is also forcing me to stick me my third New Year's Resolution, which is to
3) Rush Less - Walking to places has forced me to leave earlier than I normally would, and it's made my life much more peaceful. I would like to arrive earlier and finish things sooner in more areas of my life.
4) Self-Discipline - All of the above are impossible without this little nugget. It's not that I'm a complete loser - I wouldn't be this successful if I possessed absolutely no discipline. HOWEVER...I do struggle with doing things EVERY DAY. I eat everyday; I shower every day; can it really be that much harder to workout every day?
5) Stretch - This is the key to my happiness. I suffer from overly tight muscles, and most areas of my body hurt pretty much all of the time. You would think that this alone would motivate me enough to stretch, but alas...see #4.
6) Become rich and famous - My dream in life. And when it does happen, I promise that I will use my powers for good, give back to my community, and pay off my student loans.
Apparently she beat out Psy, Taylor Swift, the author of "50 Shades of Grey", and the CAST OF TWILIGHT (?!) for the title.
Adele is so much more than a mere phenomenon (ahem...cast of Twilight). Every song that this lady releases is a JAM. And though she didn't release a new album this year, or tour, she still totally deserves this title because she's one of the most amazing artists of our time. You can read the full article from Billboard.com here.
Hey, Pep! It's Jes...your weekend girl. Writing to you all the way from the production room down the hall. GURL. Did you hear that One Direction's Harry Styles got a new ship tattoo on his arm?!? I think he copied you. He also had his gf, T. Swift, there holding his hand while he got his new ink. I think he's just trying to one-up you. But don't worry! I got your back -- next time you get an even sweeter tat on your arm, I'll be there, holding your hand, while I'm holding my awesome new Taylor Swift mug that you gave me for X-mas. And then we'll tweet a pic about it. And then I'll blog about it. LOVE YOU!
So, this post was originally going to be about last week's "VH1's Divas Live" event...but then I saw this picture of the one, Miss Miley Cyrus, on the red carpet with a new 'do.
Holy crap! She looks amazing. If I was 110 pounds and famous, I would DEFINITELY want to rock this dream pixie cut. I would never have expected something like this out of Miley, but she looks so good! She's got the whole fierce-independent-woman-of-the-21st-century thing going for her with this haircut. I dig it. A lot. And Charlize Theron looks fierce no matter what.
Someone had a good weekend! There's been some speculation for awhile now about when Kelly Clarksonwould be getting engaged to Reba McEntire's step son Brandon Blackstock and it finally happened! Kelly broke the news herself on Saturday by tweeting a picture of the ring. Congrats girl!
Who knew Taylor Swift was so versatile? I almost didn't recognize her in the video-thumbnail-preview! I'm also so glad that her next hit song is significantly less annoying than "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together".
"I Knew You Were Trouble" pretty much rocks, and the video is equally intense. My only critique is: Why is T. Swift always trying to be so theatrical? Our Promotions Director here at Wilks Broadcast Group is always screaming, "I WISH SHE WOULD QUIT TALK-SINGING!" And though this song doesn't have quite the extensive talk-singing segments that 'We Are Never..." does, it DOES have a version with an extended "monologue" at the end. Oy.
and I may die from excitement. Drew's contract with Covergirl expires in January and soon after she'll be stocking the shelves of Wal Mart with her new products, simply called "Flower". So far the line is described as "true luxury at mass" meaning fabulous stuff for the masses AKA why they're being sold at Wal Mart. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THEM ALL! Click here for more details.
Well, in a way. They showed up together last night on the red carpet for A Christmas Story: The Musical on Broadway. Yeah that's cute and all, but how do we know they're getting serious? John also brought his DAD! The three of them seemed to get along really well. I'm not bitter at all by the way, if John Mayer is dating anyone but me, I want it to be Katy Perry. I have huge crushes on both of them. -Pepper
Pink is one of many artists featured on T.I.'s new album. A$AP Rocky, Cee Lo Green, Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, and Kelly Rowland are all featured on T.I.'s Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, due out December 18.
I personally love seeing unexpected artist collaborations such as this one. I always wonder, whose idea was it? Was T.I. sitting there one day and was like, "That P!NK chick is kinda fierce...."
After listening to a few of the audio previews, I think I'm most excited about the Andre 3000 collaboration. I thought I even caught a bit of the old-skool Outkast vibe in the entire album. What do you all think??
Taylor Swift, The Wanted, Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Psy, and more will all be performing on New Year's Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest this year! You can party with all of those celebs and not even have to leave your couch. Or you can listen to the ReMix Dance Party that night instead of Mix 100.9!
OneRepublic used actual heartbeats of kids in need to create the beat for their latest hit "Feel Again" and every download of the song on iTunes donates money to help them! How cool is that? Get more info here. Can't wait until we get that new OneRepublic album the first week of March. I'm counting down the days! -Pepper

AWWWW, MAN! Don't you hate it when you lose a little respect for a celebrity that you previously liked because they're clearly making bad choices all of the sudden? According to TMZ, Max George from The Wanted was "the aggressor" in this new fling.
Reasons I'm disappointed:
He's a rising star in an up-and-coming new boy band...and she's Lindsay Lohan.
I hoped/assumed all the boys from The Wanted were gay.
He's probably just doing this for tabloid exposure.
I smell an impending duet.
She probably just wants a boyfriend for Christmas so that he has to get her something.
Ok, I should probably get off my judgement horse now! I mean, LES-BE-HONEST, I hope my life is this exciting someday. I want to stalk sexy boy band boys on tour and then seduce the hottest one into my Linday-Lohan-Lair, from where he shall never return. MUAHAHAHAHA.
