The Entertation Index: June 17

June 17, 2010

Drake — Aubrey Graham, a.k.a. “Drake,” aformer Degrassi star and up-and-coming Lil’ Wayne protoge, caused police headaches at New York City’s South Street Seaport last night. While double-headlining a free concert with pop group Hanson, the rapper roused fans after it was announced he would be late and not take the stage until eight o’clock, causing riots to break out and the concert to be canceled. In the fans’ defense, though, the Hanson crowd does need to be in bed by 7:30.

Fox, Megan — Once-heroine of the Transformers franchise and longtime Entertation Index muse Megan Fox, after being spotted sporting some new cursive ink along her ribcage, tells Contact Music that her newest tattoo is “in honor of” current co-star Mickey Rourke, whom she calls “very special.” Fox’s stock is expected to go down in value because — as men everywhere can attest — the last thing you want when a beautiful, sexy starlet takes off her shirt is to be reminded of Mickey Rourke.

Jewel — The once-homeless Alaskan songstress and rodeo wife tells Shape Magazine in a recent spread that her feelings were hurt when she was once referred to, years ago, as the “chubby Renee Zellweger.” It’s okay Jewel; I know how you feel. I too have suffered those slings, having being  referred to once by the media as “the fussy Sting, once as “the pragmatic Ed Asner,” and once as “the incontinent Dr. Sanjay Gupta” It does hurt.

Tuesday night's Drake/Hanson concert.

Kombat, Mortal — The New York Times has an interview with director Kevin Tancharoen, a young director who recently made a short film based on the 1990’s video game Mortal Kombat, hoping to helm a reboot of the franchise. Tancharoen tells the Times that with a project like this, there’s “no lukewarm,” and that “fanboys can rip you to shreds or embrace you.” I hope Tancharoen is ready for the can of worms he’s about to open, because if he gets it wrong there could be as many as two people who will really be upset. Two! You don’t want that kind of heat.

Rock, Fraggle — What’s weirder than the Weinstein Company ordering a Fraggle Rock movie? The fact that writer-director Cory Edwards tells press that his first draft of the film was rejected with orders to make the film “more edgy.” Allegedly the second draft will focus more on Gobo’s aerosol addiction and Mokey and Boober’s slowly disintegrating marriage after a careless accident at a Doozer construction site leaves him an amputee. I’m totally high-fiving myself right now at remembering all these names, by the way.

Stewart, Kristen — Miss Frowny Face herself and belle of the Twilight saga Kristen Stewart tells the press that she’s tired of people asking her to smile and notes that she “should get a face transplant or something.” I’m no doctor or anything, but I’d wager to say you’ve officially been in Hollywood too long when, instead of simply smiling, your go-to solution is a “face transplant.” I might consider a personality transplant first. Pow! Zing! Take that, successful teenager!
