Judy Garland

She was in one of the biggest hits of the century, right up there with Ben-Hur, Gone With The Wind and Casablanca. She even won an Oscar for her portrayal as Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz, and that was just the beginning. She enjoyed a great deal of fame and celebrity during her short life – she was married several times and gave birth to two daughters who went on to enjoy their own celebrated careers.

She was the star of many MGM musicals, including the fabulous Meet Me in St. Louis and even more fabulous Easter Parade. She danced with Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and was Mickey Rooney’s very own BFF in a relationship spanning decades. The highlight of her career came in 1954, when she gave her greatest performance in A Star is Born.

Anne Hathaway1So when told that newcomer Anne Hathaway would be playing her in not only a stage show of her life but a film as well, Judy Garland was understandably incensed.

“Who the hell is this Anne Hathaway person?” Garland demanded to know. “I’ve never even heard of her! Why can’t Liza play me? She sounds more like me than anyone else, and she can act!”

Garland seemed unaware of how much time had passed and that her daughter Liza Minnelli is now 63 years of age – far too old to portray a young version of her. She continued to berate Hathaway.

“This little tramp wasn’t even born yet when I kicked it. I’ve been up here longer than she’s been down there! What does she know about MGM and packing out concert halls and popping barbiturates like they’re candy? NOTHING, that’s what!”

An attempt at consolation on the part of former husband Vincent Minnelli was met with the usual icy stare.

“Get someone else.. get one of those marvelous drag queens to play me.. those little darlings were spot on.”

Actress Anne Hathaway declined comment, being too busy practicing her Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Audrey Hepburn impressions in the bathroom mirror.

A bottle of Avril, Please

by RhodesTer on October 1, 2009

Rhodester's Celebrity Ambush

avril_lavigne_black_starSadistic serial killers take note, reportedly Avril Lavigne has launched a new fragrance here in the USA that she aptly describes as, “me in a bottle.”

She calls it “Black Star“, and although they had the launch party in the UK at Oxford Circus way back in the spring, we here in the states finally get to have our fantasies fulfilled when it comes to chopping Avril Lavigne up into tiny little pieces and stuffing those pieces into a small glass jar.

Reportedly, the smell is not unlike “pink hibiscus mixed with black plum and dark chocolate“, which makes us kind of tingly all over and very, very anxious to run right out to our local Target to snag our very own bottle of Punk Princess.

Hey, hey, you, you, I don’t like your perfume
No way, no way, I think you need a new one
Hey, hey, you, you, I could be your perfume

Hey, hey, you, you, I know that you like me
No way, no way, you know it’s not a secret
Hey, hey, you, you, I want to be your perfume

You’re so fine, I want you mine, you’re so delicious
I think about you all the time, you’re so addictive
Don’t you know what I can do to make you feel alright?
chop, chop, CHOP

Don’t pretend, I think you know I’m precious
And so yeah, I’m a perfume princess
I can tell you like me too and you know I’m right
I’m right, I’m right, I’m right

She’s like so whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
So splash me on your neck, dammit!

Hey, hey, you, you, I don’t like your perfume
No way, no way, I think you need a new one
Hey, hey, you, you, I could be your perfume

Hey, hey, you, you, I know that you like me
No way, no way, you know it’s not a secret
Hey, hey, you, you, I want to be your perfume

Perfume, perfume, peeeerrfuuuumeeee…. (end)

Avril
