10 Celebrity News links at Sunset: The Hollywood life is all about afternoon martinis and talking about celebrity antics, pop stars, naughty stars and block buster movies and beautiful pop music.
The martinis at sunset are made strictly with Grey Goose vodka as a tribute to the giggles that Chelsea Handler brings on.
The Kiwi in me wishes they had 42 Below Feijoa vodka here in El lay, at the local. But of course, no one really knows what a feijoa really is here on the strip. That would be way too real, organic and healthy. Anyway, here’s ten celebrity hot topics of interest tonight on Horiwood.Com. See below:
My favorite coverage on the issue is newsweek. The tweet on twitter provides the link below:
Here’s 1o Reasons from Horiwood.Com as to why Disney did buy Marvel and acquire the comic book franchise to their staple of material for film and merchandising:
1. Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Twilight Saga, Harry Potter are just some examples that prove that making film sequels is the way of the future. The Batman franchise (including the global-sales history making Dark Knight) came from a comic, and three of these examples came from print media first (books).
Film series centering on the one idea can be made for cheaper rather than doing brand new idea projects all the time. Comic books are written in sequels, providing perfect content for film franchise brands to evolve.
2. Marvel Comics allows what’s really going on in society to be reflected in cartoon form. This is a non-threatening medium that moves peoples consciousness forward under the guise of cartoon entertainment to accept change that is upon us. I cite President Barack Obama’s Spiderman Marvel Comic cover as my example here. The subtext, Obama is the superhero President America needs to climb through a recession.
3. In 2008, googles biggest trending topic was super heroes in all of their varieties. Marvel comics is full of them. The world is looking for super heroes strength to lead us through a global economic crises. Super heroes will still trend well this year.
4. Disney is tired and needs new and lucrative ideas to turn into films and entertainment. Marvel comics provides an archive of such great material.
5. The hottest stars of Hollywood are signed to Marvel Comic films, where cartoons are going to be turned into films. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine series and also Ryan Reynolds new spin off series show that Hollywood’s A-List want to play cartoon characters turned into real life cinematic heroes. It’s the way forward.

Miley Cyrus’ image and Disney’s Hannah Montana’s brand is one of the methods being used to encourage kids to eat fruit.
Hannah Montana’s Red Cherries are on sale in America. lol!
But it’s not a bad idea, to make fruit popular in the eyes of children.
Jodelle Ferland discovered firsthand what being cast in Twilight’s Eclipse film meant for her twitter popularity. Since she first tweeted the news about her casting, Jodelle has gained 100 new Twitter followers an hour. Woah!
Says Jodelle in a new interview with The Vancouver Sun :
“I got about 2,000 new followers on the first day…I got Twitter just a couple of weeks ago and I had 136 followers and I was like ‘Wow, I have 136 followers..And then the Twilight news came out and we checked and it was 800 and something right away…I started freaking out, I couldn’t believe it… I’m not allowed to say, but I can tell you I am playing a newborn vampire… But I’m not a newborn, I’m newly turned; some people don’t get that…I don’t know [about her upcoming fight scenes], but that would be fun [to fight her famous costars].
Here’s the top 10 News Posts on Horiwood.Com for Twilight’s Eclipse:

Poor Miley. At 16 she’s dealing with an al creepo stalker. Miley has been granted a temporary restraining order on Thursday from Mark McLeod, the creepy dude whose pic I will not post on this blog because he doesn’t deserve the attention.
McLeod has been arrested for stalking Disney’s reigning tween queen Miley before on several counts.
The temporary restraining order’s verbage says that McCleod “shall not harass, threaten, molest, contact or attempt to contact, or in any other manner interfere with Cyrus, any member of her family, her friends, and fellow employees.”
When a child (or anyone for that matter) is stalked, something in my heart feels so sad. I speak from experience on the issue. No child should have to deal with a stalker. It takes away a piece of their freedom, innocence and youth just by the sheer annoyance of having the unpredictable threat of a stalker anywhere near you.
Having met Miley briefly, I know that she is a very sweet girl. You have to meet her in person to know how smart, giving and sweet she really is.
We may all joke about her on entertainment blogs, because she’s the baby of the A-List celebrity set, and her family are all over show biz, so we joke about them too sometimes…. but all jest aside, she’s an American living treasure of entertainment and US culture. This is offset by the fact that she is extremely down to earth. She’s very level headed for her age.
Her humility is her most instantly recognizable trait in person when I met her. She knows her star power but she masks it in a very warm friendly well mannered way. It must be a Tennesse thing.
When you meet Miley Cyrus, like Angelina Jolie, she is a young lady who is rich in intuitive intelligence. Like an old soul in a younger person’s body. It’s a rare gift and they see ahead with visionary eyes as to where the world is heading and needs to be lead. They have visionary emotional intelligence.
To meet stars who flow from their intuition (not just their egos or from logic alone) and act accordingly to inspire others is something that helps define a true A-List star or any noteworthy leader to me. With these ‘modern gifts’ for the world, they will always be ahead of the pack. It’s who they are.
Stars like Angie and Miley both give entertaining gifts from their heart to entertain audiences worldwide. Fundamentally they are both heart-based people.
To see a stalker try and threaten that goodness makes my blood boil.
On the flipside, it goes with the young pop star territory. Miley is so Britney Spears! Love her! Nice to know she has piece of mind reinstated with the restraining order.

horiwood’s last twitter pick was from dale who is back in NZ :( Here it is: “@horiwood Definitely home – nothin like singing the Lord’s Prayer in Maori this am at Te Ataakura’s christening & crying over the AB’s loss.”9:50 PM Aug 1st from web in reply to horiwood
Woah! Thanks to Miley Cyrus friendship, an orchestrated ‘dumping’ via Twitter with Miley’s brother Trace Cyrus, (which strummed up a wave of public sympathy amongst gullible tweens), Disney’s Demi Lovato has the #1 album in America this week. Lovato’s album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s 200, moving over 107,000 units.
Congrats Demi Lovato, family friend of the Cyrus Clan, on your Here We Go Again album’s hot success. Nice work, Team Demi!
It’s official. Miley Cyrus is my favorite publicist for the tween market in LA! No one does it better in moving tween audiences across media and music product like the Queen of Tweens.
Will Trace Cyrus’ Metro Station album, be the next #1. Can Miley do it again? It’s Trace’s turn on this one. You know it. What a good brother for agreeing to play the game!
Team Twilight dominated your news pics heavily today on Horiwood.Com. Enjoy!

Jake Gyllenhaal as a ‘rogue prince’ Dastan and Gemma Arterton as ‘mysterious princess’ Tamina from The Prince of Persia’s new promo posters, have got Hollywood’s movie obsessed audiences buzzing today. Here’s how you ranked your top 10 entertainment news bites on Horiwood.Com today:
Horiwood’s last tweet was: horiwoodRT: @TheEllenShow: “Im the guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance this Wed night on Fox. They dont call me the Polka Queen for nothing!”less than 5 seconds ago from web
Demi Lovato and Trace Cyrus of Metro Station were tweeting to each other with very warm and friendly messages on twitter over the last two weeks. But it appears that their twitter ‘relationship’ has ended.
Playing different venues and both trying to get careers off the ground, should perhaps be their priorities and not doing the full on dating thing.
Having Miley Cyrus as a sister, and best friend in Lovato’s case perhaps doesn’t help the matter. Both Trace and Demi are competing for musical success on the par of Miley, but they don’t have the amount of Disney’s marketing money behind them to achieve Miley’s level of fame.
Perhaps the notion of teaming up, to be a power couple in tween music was a good idea. Sadly, that idea is already burnt through. I hope Lovato remains good friends with the Cyrus clan. She’s a honey! And perhaps the Cyrus clan, need to be a little bit more aware of the effect of their fame on their “friends.”
It’s a learning curve, but you don’t want a reputation as a family, for burning everyone who comes too close to the family! It’s not True Blood, guys!!
