The Entertation Index: January 19

January 19, 2012

Adele — It’s not enough that Brit supernova Adele has had the greatest 2011 perhaps of any mainstream artist; a British market research team has determined that she also tops the karaoke charts. Adele’s hit “Someone Like You” has been reportedly chosen by a whopping one in four karaoke singers. No word on how much extra booze is sold during these karaoke performances; after all, nothing says “Let’s party!” like Adele’s “Someone Like You.”

Lennon, John — The pop culture website Mental Floss has shed new light on the former Beatle’s personality as a cat lover by compiling a list of all the cats known to have been owned by the singer during his lifetime, starting with a kitty named Elvis during his boyhood and ending with the three cats he had when he was killed. Not covered in the piece is the deep resentment he harbored that Yoko Ono was not a cat after her strained singing misled him into falling in love with her.

Seriously, look at those arms. Just look at them.

Madonna — Since winning a Golden Globe Sunday night for her music from the film W.E., pop diva Madonna has found herself involved in three fights: one with Ricky Gervais, firing back at him after his comedic barb at her from the podium, one with Elton John’s partner David Furnish, who took umbrage with her accolade, and one with Lady Gaga, after criticizing the singer’s “Born This Way” as being similar to her own “Express Yourself.” With all these beatdowns, it’s a good thing Madonna’s arms are so — wait, are they muscular? They have a weird shape, maybe some kind of bizarre toning and they’re kind of alien looking. Actually, I’m not sure if they’re strong or not. Never mind.

Richie, Lionel — Last week we featured an amalgam of President Obama singing “Born This Way,” as mashed together from his speeches, and loved it. This week it would seem that the genre is gaining even more of a foothold, as evidenced by this re-performing of Lionel Richie’s seminal “Hello” as created from film clips over the years. Enjoy.

Rowland, Kelly — The former Destiny’s Child ensembler recently praised former bandmate Beyonce’s parental skills, calling her a “natural mother” to baby Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce’s offspring with superstar Jay-Z. Rowland then put her hand to her mouth and uttered, under her breath, “at least until she decides she doesn’t need the baby any more, and just leaves it high and dry with nowhere else to go but to star in Freddy Vs. Jason.”

Tequila, Tila — It’s been some time since the very talented miss Tila Tequila graced the pages of the Entertation Index, but this is truly cause for celebration — the internet celebrity has announced that she’s converting to Judaism, telling TMZ that “I just feel like the Jewish people have such a beautiful way about them, and I can’t wait to officially be Jewish! Shabbat Shalom.” It seemed like a natural fit; after all, she already smells like gefilta fish.
