a little of this, and a little of that.

Hey guys! Happy Hump Day! Sorry that this post is coming to you much later then usual.  It's just been one of those days.  Anyway, since it's the middle of the week, I figured I would do a little update on what's been going on in the realm of pop culture.  Just a little way to make sure we are all caught up on the important stuff.

1. So in case you haven't heard, there is a New Moon Mall Tour going on right now.  This is your chance to meet the stars from The Twilight Saga: New Moon.  Some cast members (which haven't been named) have hit the road on a nationwide tour before the vampire flick hits theaters November 20th.  At all of the 15 stops, fans will get the chance to attend a Q&A forum and select cities will feature performaces from artits on the film's soundtrack. I am super duperly stoked looking forward to head to the mall this Sunday.  And yup, my city is one of the lucky few to be having the little concert.  Shweet!

2. In case you want to hear Chris Brown attempt yet another lame apology (anyone catch him on Larry King??), he will be speaking with MTV this Friday, November 6.  The 30-minute special will have MTV's Sway asking Chris some tough questions about what happened in February.

3. Taylor Swift will be serving double duty on SNL this Saturday, November 7th.  Not only will the 19-year-old country star be hosting the show, but she will also be the musical guest.  Be sure to check out the promo video... it's pretty funny.

4. Sarah Chalke, of Scrubs fame, has a bun in the oven.  And apparently it's a boy, due on Christmas Day.  Just like baby Jesus!

5. Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson will be teaming up in a new movie, Bel Ami, which has been described as "erotically charged."  According to Screen Daily, the flick will chronicle the rise of an ambitious young man who sleeps his way to the top from French soldier to powerful Parisian newspaper journalist in the 1890s.  Hmmm sounds interesting.  Anything that is erotic and includes Rob sounds good to me.

6. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart grace the December 2009 cover of Harper's Bazaar.  In the article, the two talk about romance, googling themselves, and, of course, about one another.

7. 30 Rock will be welcoming yet another awesome guest star - James Franco.  Looks like Franco is making the rounds on the TV circuit.  First General Hospital, now 30 Rock.  At least he is going up.  Wonder what's next...

8. Taylor Swift is featured in the new commercial for Brand Hero.  Heidi Klum was also featured in one of these commercials a few months ago.  I really enjoy the whole Risky Business theme... quite clever.

9. Rihanna has premiered the video for her latest single, "Wait Your Turn (The Wait is Ova)" off her new album Rated R, out November 23rd.  Check it out here!

10. And, perhaps the most exciting news of all, the host of the 2010 Academy Awards has finally been announced.  And this year we are gettin' double the fun with two hosts!  That's right, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will be teaming up to cohost the biggest night in Hollywood.  What a dream team!  The show airs March 7, 2010.  Only four more months.  Holla!

Oh, and don't forget tomorrow is Thursday... be sure to come back for a little TT action!
