Hopelessly Devoted to Her

Olivia Newton-John's longtime beau is missing. This has been a very bad news week for my favorite gals. First Madonna's accident...now this wrenching news regarding my first beloved celebrity obsession. I'm praying right now that all is well in the lives of the other ones: Julianne Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Cyndi Lauper.

you're joking right?

NO! I'm not. I'm ashamed, but I'm not joking.
I think I'll go look her up now on IMDb.


Well, IMDB credits will be few far between and unimpressive for the pop star. Even though she isn't a bad actress as pop stars go.

OK, I looked her up. So she's a singer. I get it.
I am bad. Sorry.

OK, this is unrelated, but new topic:
I just have to vent somewhere about how TERRIBLE the new Willy Wonka film was. Why? Why did they do it? I'll grant that it wasn't really Depp or Burton's fault, it was mostly the dull and obvious script by John August. But jesus. I now understand the hatred for bad remakes. I love the original and this was a total desecration.
And that overloaded CGI! Give it a rest, for the love of god.
The original wasn't perfect, but it was so much fun, and it totally nailed the sweet yet snarky vibe. And there were actual sets instead of CGI environments. And actual characters instead of dumb caricatures/rehashes.
I hope everyone's happy with the money they made on this film. What a total throwaway.
