The Entertation Index: April 28

April 28, 2010

Bieber, Justin — During a recent trip to Sydney, a crowd surge injured teenage fans of hearthrob Justin Bieber, prompting Australian police to pull at least ten girls from the crowd who fainted, one being sent to hospital for a fractured kneecap and several suffering from hyperventilation. To be fair, many think Bieber was just asking for this kind of response by showing up riding a unicorn and carrying a basket of kittens.

Creed — If you love Creed (and who doesn’t?) check out what may actually be one of the most brilliant things I’ve seen on YouTube in a very long time. Apparently it’s been around a while, but if you haven’t seen it, you need to check it out right now. Be warned, however, that some of the language is a tad offensive, but if you can get past that, the idea is absolutely phenomenal.

Down, Eastbound and — Deadline Hollywood is reporting that season two of HBO’s Eastbound and Down is almost underway, revealing that casting has taken place and that the entire season will follow Danny McBride’s Kenny Powers in Mexico with little to no presence from last season’s characters at all. The absence of last years characters aside, if you watched Eastbound and Down, you know that this season getting rolling is fantastic news. Can’t get here soon enough.

Kardashians, The — Sisters Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian attended Kourtney’s thirty-first birthday in Las Vegas on Saturday. Eyewitnesses say Kourtney and Kim relaxed and swam casually in one of Wet Republic’s picturesque pools, while sister Khloe trolled the shallower waters of the baby pool with her mouth open, hoping to scoop up small children like krill.

Lambert, Adam — The American Idol runner-up told press this week that Leonardo DiCaprio would be a good choice to play him were there ever a film of the singer’s life, adding that the actor could get “intense” while playing Lambert. “An Adam Lambert bio picture? We can’t wait for that!” said no one.

Mayer, John — The egocentric troubadour, who has been silent recently (and, more importantly, has stopped using his Twitter account) in an effort to make amends for the awful things his big mouth was saying about two months ago, finally spoke up — and declared that Twitter is on the way out. “Every night I think about canceling my Twitter account because I think it’s pretty much done. I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it’s over to be honest with you.” While there’s still little evidence that Twitter will be over anytime in the near future — even with the great John Mayer losing interest in it — it’s virtually guaranteed that Mayer isn’t going to stop being a douchebag anytime soon.

Weaver, Sigorney — The Avatar star, apparently smarting from James Cameron’s snubbing in favor of The Hurt Locker for this year’s Best Picture Oscar, spoke out against the indie film, saying that “it’s fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw.” This would, I assume, account for all the Best Picture Oscars won by Weaver’s past films Death and the Maiden, Imaginary Heroes, The TV Set, The Girl in the Park, Prayers for Bobby, A Map of the World, Jeffrey and Half Moon Street.
