It is the second time Brad Pitt has seen Megamind. This time Mr Pitt is pictured with Angelina seeing the film again in Paris, France.
Wikileaks US leaked docs news dominates our top ten celebrity, entertainment news posts here in Hollywood. A shock, because this is not a political blog but an entertainment celebrity blog. I guess world leaders are celebrities right now then, if they’re rating above known celeb names. A good sign.
Here’s John Key‘s quote on the 1600 documents that relate to New Zealand, 1400 hundred of them stemming from Wellington: “My understanding is it’s more likely to be the odd sort of comment which is colourful in nature, the sort of thing that you might say to your mate around the coffee table but not necessarily something you’d want written down and read by the person that you were reporting on—I see biodocuments (documents about people) or I see reports that come in from our embassies and high commissions around the world. They always have a degree of colour or [creative] licence about them. I take them with a grain of salt. Generally the positions we hold we make them public anyway.”
Good advice on how Wikileaks docs should be read. Just like most things written on this blog really. On that note, our top ten voted worldwide today are:
10. TIE B: Jay-Z’s tribute to lost Greymouth Miners
“No one is under any illusions about how we feel about the Fiji administration at the moment or what’s happening in Afghanistan so I’d be surprised if there’s anything there”–JK for NZ.
TVNZ reporting via NZPA on NZ’s Position about the US criticism in the Wikileaks Doc: ‘After revelations via Wikileaks that diplomats were told to spy on United Nations figures, the US is accountable, NZ’s leader says.
‘Among the documents released was a classified directive to US diplomats sent on behalf of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in July 2009 which sought intelligence on the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the ambassadors of the other permanent members of the UN Security Council – Britain, China, Russia and France.
The “new national human intelligence collection directive” was sent to US representatives at the UN missions in New York, Vienna and Rome, and 33 embassies and consulates. The UN has reacted saying it will take up concerns with the US and that its operations under the 1946 convention on the privileges and immunities of the United Nations included immunity from search or interference by member governments.
Key did not criticise the US when asked about the controversy this afternoon.

“[Mothers are crucial] in guiding our families, and in our neighborhoods, and in our country, as well. They’re the shoulder that we lean on as individuals, but collectively these are the shoulders that form the foundation of our communities. They’re our friends, our teachers, our mentors, our bosses.”–Michelle Obama on Mothers Day 2010

There are still 2 1/2 more months to go, until voting is complete, but at this stage Britney Spears and Beyonce Knowles are tied in a neck and neck race to be the most searched for celebrity women of 2009.
America loves a restored trainwreck star like Spears just as much as they love their President’s #1 pick of star entertainers like Beyonce. Britney has achieved her shared #1 spot at the pinacle of stars masterfully with her comeback Circus album and her successful Circus Tour that her critics said she could not complete. Spears just did it.
Beyonce has just always been an amazing talented quadruple-threat of entertainment from Day 1 when she debuted in Destiny’s Child. She just keeps getting better each year.
Here’s The Top 10 List of Most Googled Celebrity Women in America and the number of search requests for each per month, as at September 2009.
#1. Britney Spears –37,200,000 name searches per month -tie with Beyonce.
#1. Beyonce Knowles–37,200,000 searches per month– tie with Britney Spears.
#3. Miley Cyrus –30,400,00 searches per month.
#4. Madonna–24,900 searches per month.
#5. Taylor Swift–16,600,000 searches per month.
John Key, the Prime Minister of New Zealand is too funny! In an interview cross from New York to his home country, Keys tells Mark Sainsbury, that when photographed with the Obamas, Michelle Obama is so tall, that she makes his wife Bronagh Key look like a Hobbit!
How Peter Jackson-esque of him in promoting New Zealand to the world. Let’s hope the joke was worth the slap from Bronagh when John got back to his New York hotel. The irony here is that Mark Sainsbury the interviewer Key is talking to, is a total hobbit!
Love this guy. He’s got a great sense of humor and comes across well in the US on entertainment television. That’s what good politics is all about in the US of A. The political rhetoric of a cute accent and an amusing sound bite is Key in taking world politics by storm.
Key nails it! A new hot boy, of World Politics has emerged. Nice one John Key and Bronagh!
ps: It’s not normal for New Zealand men to call their wives hobbits. :)
