"I am grateful for everything he has taught me," Beyonce said in the statement. "I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."
Tilikum was not mentioned by name during the SeaWorld show "Believe," which was seen by a near-capacity stadium at the 11:30 a.m. show. Traditionally, the whales are not identified and perform under the stage name of "Shamu," a symbol of the theme park. Trainers have not been allowed in the water with any of SeaWorld's whales since Brancheau's death.
SeaWorld says it has made changes to improve trainer safety, including guardrails around pool ledges and quicker ways to deploy safety nets. The theme park plans to install fast-rising floors that can rapidly lift trainers and whales out of the water. A new killer-whale show called "One Ocean" is being prepared and is set to debut in late April, SeaWorld said. It has not decided whether trainers will begin performing with whales in shows, park officials say.
I'd say killer whales shouldn't be playing shows in marine parks in the first place.
Congratulations! She really deserves it, her music is awesome!
On the Billboard Hot 100, “Born This Way” moves down to no. 4 after topping the chart for six weeks in a row. The song has spent its entire chart life inside the top 5.

“The fans are fantastic,” grins Shane, 31. “The banter we have with them from the stage is one of the best things about touring. Most have grown up with us, so you’d expect them to calm down as they get older. But the older they get, the madder they are.”
And it seems the fans don’t care too much about the boys’ wholesome image. “Some of the banners we can see from the stage are hilarious,” laughs Nicky, 32. “You name it, they write it, and when you think it could be some woman in her 50s holding it up, it’s so funny. We even had the very subtle ‘Ride me Shane!’. They’re hilarious. I picked the girl out of the crowd and said to her ‘You don’t fuck about do you sweetheart?’ Brilliant.”
Khloe, on why people are fascinated with the Kardashians:
“We are a real family. We don’t sugarcoat anything. We’re not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first. We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it.”
Kim, on living life in front of the whole world:
“There’s nothing I’m really ashamed of, and I work hard on the show and all my other projects. I don’t drink or do drugs, so I’m comfortable showing the world what my life is all about.”
Kris, on the biggest misconceptions about the Kardashians:
“It’s annoying when I hear, ‘What do your girls do?’ Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show. And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that’s a huge misconception — that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day. And that they don’t have any talent? They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show. Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. I want to say, How many shows do you have?”
Kris, on family values:
“Our joy in life is that we always have each other. So I’ve tried to teach my kids three things: love God, love your family, and love yourself.”
Too bad, although I'm not a big fan of Enrique anymore, at least he sings live. It would be nice for the audiences to at least get some live vocals on stage.
Has she (and LiveNation) gone absolutely insane? After all the bad reviews of The Circus Starring Britney Spears Tour and, more recently, her Good Morning America 'performance', how on earth are they planning to sell out arena's with this outrageous prices?
She said on her Channel 4 show Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags: "It was really quite touch and go for a few days. My friends reacted so much more to me being ill compared to what I felt was the most devastating part of it, I couldn't have cared less about myself. I literally was on my death bed but I didn't even feel it."
Dressed simply in a white vest and jeans, Britney wisely donned goggles for the spectacle which she introduced as "the poo cocktail supreme". She is seen entering the portaloo, which is connected to two cranes by taught bungee ropes.
”I’m so excited to be coming to Radio 1′s Big Weekend,” said Gaga. “I’ve been planning and rehearsing for so many months now and after two years of working on my new album I’ll get to do a great big performance in the UK. I’m mostly excited for the Big Weekend because I can’t wait to see all of the monsters in the UK. Expect a monster avant-garde pop fantasia. This event is so important to me because Radio 1 was one of the first stations to really support my artistry and my music and I get to come back and enjoy this moment with all of you. Thank you so much for all of your love and support and for always believing in me as an artist. I can’t wait to see you. Paws up!”

This is the first child for Victoria and the fifth for Kevin, who has two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, with Britney. Kevin also has a son, Kaleb, and daughter, Kori, with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson.
Once trailer trash, always trailer trash.
It's actually kinda funny, are Britney fans really THAT stupid to spend so much money on a show that contains no live vocals whatsoever? From the Air Canada Centre, here's The Circus Starring Britney Spears - Womanizer.
(have you noticed, by the way, she doesn't even get the lipsyncing right? why the hell is this woman still in showbizz? it's just pathetic, and therefor, extremely amusing to watch this trainwreck)
Check out Britney Spears 'singing' Piece Of Me during The Circus Starring Britney Spears at Izod Center in New Jersey.
Notice how she is not moving AT ALL! There is absolutely no reason for her to lipsync, unless of course she doesn't even sing her own songs in the studio... It's a autotune, vocoder and lipsync party!!!
Now that the Femme Fatale Tour has been announced, before any of you are unfortunate enough to buy tickets to the 'concert', have a look at a typical performance from The Circus Starring Britney Spears (at Izod Center in New Jersey), her last tour, and note that fact that not only does Britney not dance (or barely move, for that matter), but even worse, the singing is not just lipsyncing, it's even autotuned, so it doesn't even sound live.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is what a Britney 'concert' is all about. Still looking to buy tickets? In that case you deserve to get ripped off. Seriously, this is just insane. Why doesn't she fucking sing live?!?!
Gary said: "We really want that and this is our dream come true. At the beginning we all said it was going to last for one album, but we're starting to write again, so we don't know now."
Robbie is still planning to release solo material alongside his band commitments once the record-breaking Progress tour is completed.
In an interview in the US, Mark said: "We are a team - at the moment Take That is five people, but it feels more than that. There's a lot of people who have a relationship with us. At the beginning there was a fragility to the whole thing, but that has gone now.
Robbie said: "We are a cohesive unit. Hopefully there'll be another album with the five of us, but we don't know if it'll be the next one."
Senate Bill 48, proposed by senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, passed the committee in a 6-3-1 vote. The bill would require that teachers and textbooks present alternate lifestyles in a positive light, with instruction in subjects such as history, psychology, political science, and communication in public school classrooms. The ten-member committee, comprised mainly of Democrats, unanimously favored the bill, backed by Equality California and the Gay Straight Alliance Network.
Hurrah for equality!
Madonna, who adopted a boy and a girl from the southern African country, loaned $11m (£6.9m) to the charity and now sits on the board. The charity workers' lawyer, Mzondi Chirambo, said the singer had 14 days to respond to their concerns.
"Their employment was terminated by the trustees of Raising Malawi Academy for Girls ostensibly following the change of plan not to build the school as planned," he told Reuters news agency. "My clients are also being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement before they are paid their benefits."
What a true bitch she is!
It will be hard for the fans this will be the definitive final part of the franchise...
“Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small,” Jennifer told Us Weekly. “We want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts all of our lives, no matter who we are.”
Though his role in 1951's 'Strangers on a Train' is by far his most memorable, Granger was no stranger to other parts. He made his debut in Hitchcock's 'Rope' in 1948, Nicholas Ray's 'They Ride by Night' in 1949 and Luchino Visconti's Italian drama 'Senso' in 1954. He also starred in 1955's 'The Naked Street' and 'The Girl on the Red Velvet Swing' in 1955 but then focused more on theater and television roles.
Rest in peace.

A shark attack at Udu in Vanua Levu, Fiji forced doctors to remove the victim’s left forearm, after most of it was bitten off during the attack on Monday. Metereti Jeke, 30, was swimming at a popular reef catching fish for his family when the shark attacked. His left forearm had been ripped and flesh was dangling from the bone.
The ship left Los Angeles Sunday and officials said they don't know if she fell overboard or is still on the ship, which holds 2,700 passengers and a crew of 950. The ship had yet to make its first scheduled stop in Mexico when her absence was noted.
Disney said the Mexican navy has conducted searches since Tuesday and the company has notified the FBI and the Bahamian Maritime Authority about the woman's disappearance.
All of the monies earned from "Songs for Japan" will be directed to the Japanese Red Cross Society to support its disaster relief efforts. The society will use the funds for the ongoing provision of immediate relief and for eventual recovery support to the affected population. The artists participating on Songs for Japan, the major music labels - EMI Music, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group - and music publishers have waived their royalties and proceeds from the worldwide sales of the album to ensure that the JRCS receives as much support as possible from this global initiative. In addition, iTunes will donate all proceeds from the album's worldwide sales to the benefit of the JRCS.
According to officials, Thomas, after initially attempting to feign innocence, told police that he stoned Seidman because the man had made repeated homosexual advances toward him. Thomas used the Bible as his justification for killing the man by hitting him in the head with stones, which were stuffed in a sock. Seidman's body was found days after the incident, and officials believe that the man died in his apartment in early January.
Only in America. I suppose Bryan Fischer would be pleased...
