True fact – America produces the most fun teenage experience in the world that is media savvy. In particular a vision of the teen of California. Creating such pictures of California youth is a big global industry industry the world loves.
This year, Selena Gomez was the third most popular name in entertainment in the US. Miley Cyrus no.7. What both stars have in common is that they were spun concurrently via Disney’s child-star making factory. Selena in direct response to Miley’s star phenomenon no one quite expected to occur as evidently as it did.
Good luck with that! There’s not really a “From fame to real life” manual–it’s up to every individual to navigate that for themselves–but I like the sentiment of mentoring. Sounds wise. The weird thing about Disney is that child actors aren’t really thought about while they make the lucrative bucks for Disney–their problems begins when the child star realizes how much Disney (or the world of Entertainment) has taken from their young lives in the fame trade-off. Is Disney doing damage control here? Looks like it.
However, Disney is the surest way to create child stars from America perceived to be credible in the world. Such is the enduring legacy of Walt Disney as a star brand.

Mr Facebook movie entertainer, Justin Timberlake was spotted kissing his co-star Olivia Wilde on the set of I’m Mortal in Los Angeles, Friday.
The film taps into Hollywood (and parts of the world’s) obsession with health, youthfulness and longetivity. I’m Mortal is a film about how:
“In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man who comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as ‘time keepers’. Written by THR Heat Vision

According to US Weekly, the magazine whose publisher funds Obama campaigns, Justin Timberlake has been cheating on Jessica Biel.
Meaning in tabloid Hollywood terms that- if you haven’t seen Justin yet in the Facebook movie, please do. He’s totally eligible – to draw a chick crowd still, go see his film ladies.
Taylor Swift and Jake Gylenhaal‘s apple picking dates also feature, along with Kim Kardashian romance rumors and Jessica and Nick old flame rumors cross-over tabloid tales.
Incidentally Kim Kardashian is so smart – She’s teamed up with lawyer Robert Shapiro and does Shoe-dazzle, a company that has every young girl buying shows from Kim online. Check them out. She’s a mogul in the making. Switch on and so on her game.
[This post especially for Dale Karauria of Wellywood - whose a Maori girl whose shoes-dazzled brainy and smart in political circles].

What: 901 Tequila TVC. Who: Justin Timberlake making his directorial debut. Location: The Standard Hotel, Los Angeles. TVC Premise: 9:01 is the time of night, that is about downtime and unwinding, 901 is also Justin’s zip code of his hometown in Memphis, Elvis country. Title: Let them eat cake. Why: Who knows. But on a tastes level, Tequila + Cake, um–no! 42 Below vodka + Cake, maybe. :)

According to US Weekly Magazine, yes, Cameron Diaz would reunite with Justin Timberlake. Cameron has her new Tom Cruise film to rock out–as these Hollywood kids cut through the crap and get their Hollywood publicity blitz on.
Nice picture of Jessica Biel too on this cover. But let’s face it, Cameron would be more inclined to go back to her bong and a bikini and a deck chair on her days off from movie making than with Justin. If you see Cammie like I do, some weeks getting her morning coffee from Starbucks here in West Hollywood… than that’s kind of how she’d roll. She’s pretty down to earth and not a drama causer at all, so this tabloid cover is doing way too much–from US Weekly this week.
The tabloid exemplifies the art of how to make a buck in America using other peoples photos and running some copy with their photos. Right?! The “he loves being fought over” tag line is a great Tiger Woods commentary-or any dork who thinks threesomes are the way to go while raising children. That part is mildly amusing.
But getting back to my storyline…. In West Hollywood … we love Cameron Diaz. Resident of our City at times. Hey girl!

The people of America voted a song about a President-King’s love affair, as being the #1 fundraising song for the Hope for Haiti Now Telethon event.
When Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris sung Hallelujah the song became a number 1 hit this week and the most downloaded song of the telethon for Haiti.
What does this say about Haiti? or, the US? or pop culture in general at this time right now? If a King we knew (whether it be King of the Sports World, Tiger Woods or a leader of the world in any field) was found to be having an affair, would we find it in our hearts to forgive him?
Hope for Haiti Now raised $61 million and Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris‘ live performance of Leonard Cohen‘s Hallelujah song has drawn the most charity downloads on iTunes internationally. It is #1 on the U.S. iTunes Top Singles chart and in the iTunes Top 10 songs chart. The Hope For Haiti Now album currently sits at Number One on iTunes’ Albums Chart, and is all but guaranteed the top spot on tomorrow’s Billboard 200 chart.

You the people voted in 2009. Here’s the top ten Hollywood male stars that you selected to show the most promise to shine as celebrities you love and want to see more of for your entertainment heading into 2010. Two break out stars top this list. Democracy in action is alive and well in Hollywood. Thanks for voting.
10. Jermaine Jackson
9. Julian Lennon
8. Justin Gatson
7. Justin Timberlake
6. Brad Pitt
5. Salvador Dali
4. David Carradine
3. Michael Jackson
2. Taylor Lautner
1. Alex Meraz – Paul of Twilight’s New Moon wolf pack.
Summation: The top ten most popular men voted by you worldwide in Hollywood on Horiwood.Com reveal that Native American Indian actors making a comeback in Hollywood mainstream entertainment were the big story of the year.
Young men who would protect women at any cost against danger; who would also have a sense of brotherhood and values of team; had supernatural power to turn into someone else and…. who would take their shirts off to entertain audiences of teens and housewives moms worldwide … were also what Alex Meraz and Taylor Lautner did really well this year to make them the #1 and #2 most interesting male stars in Hollywood heading into 2010.
Stephenie Meyer and Kristen Stewart also share in their honors today, helping co-create and star with these young Hollywood superstars. Theirs is a story of great casting, but having the talent, determination and doing the graft to deliver the goods when the opportunity called. A great effort.
Three dead artists also made the list.
Brad Pitt‘s King of Hollywood romance and super dad title got him through, Jermaine Jackson‘s ability to inspire hope for his family and their fanbase in a time of global grief inspired us all; and the son of a Beatle‘s return to music along with a break out superstar from the UK in Robert Pattinson and his ability to portray a love story, rounds out the top ten men of Hollywood this year.
As three of these stars are no longer with us, Michael Jackson’s two sons rank next, but for their childhood’s sake and their privacy… these three men are the next top stars that you voted as your entertainers this year.
11. Kanye West: his controversial ego as well as his art brought him home this year. He is the only celebrity who the President called a “jack ass” off the record this year. He’s a consummate showman and a ‘bad boy of hip hop’ we love.
12. Keith Lewis for his controversial handling of the Carrie Prejean debacle with the Miss California Miss USA Pageant for Donald Trump, that entertained us all by revealing hypocrisy in most of us in 2009 from a beauty pageant podium. Lewis proved to be a clever producer of entertainment, asking the world the question… what is right, just and humane when it comes to ‘The Truth?’
13. Sir Richard Branson because he’s innovative, a fearless and creative billionaire who still wants to ride around with a naked supermodel on his back while kite skiing. Ridiculous!!! But Branson knows how to get his press and promote his air travel ventures with a sense of leisurely show biz magnitude. He’s still an entertaining actor today.

Justin Timberlake rose from N’ Sync to go solo as a singer, songwriter performer. A bevy of famous girlfriends like Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel helped Timberlake to make the leap from pop music to Hollywood films as well.
A fame monster of women from way back, it was Justin’s early insight into the fact that Lady Gaga was a big star, that led him to parody her on Saturday Night Live. It was this chunk he took from the fledgling pop star Germanotta’s back, that garnered Timberlake his second Emmy Award and also carried him home to the 22nd hottest spot in Hollywood this year with all online viewers.
As cute as he is cruel, Justin Timberlake knows how to play the Hollywood fame game better than many. Congratulations JT, no 22 for 2009.

La Toya Jackson is a vision of silky blue as she leaves the set of Dancing With The Stars.
Celebrity always does bite, but it is how one uses their fame for the good, that shows a star’s true star power, or whether they are just pretending to be a star. Always give. Celebrity News bites today are as follows:
Hollywood legend, Steven Spielberg has been retained as Creative Director for Universal at $50 million a year. Nice!–Variety
Oscar and grammy winner, Jennifer Hudson is in talks to play the role of Winnie Mandlea in a Nelsen Mandela biopic. Great role!–showbiz411
Giving fills Madonna‘s love of more fame with Glee. The hit feel good TV show is doing an entire episode devoted to Madonna songs as Madonna gifts Glee her music royalty rights. Nice!–Music-Mix
Charlize Theron may play Mad Maxine, as Mel Gibson‘s famous role gets set for a Mad Max reprise, down under–Sydney Sun.
Kanye West did not die in a car crash as falsely reported. Taylor Swift did not kill him.–Sophos

US Magazine is reporting that Justin Timberlake dumped his girlfriend Jessica Biel over the phone a month ago. Lindsay Lohan had tweeted in June, when she’d spotted Timberlake at a club “so dark–where’s jb cheater?”
The source also says Jessica Biel is in denial about the split, as Timbelake and Biel have always been hot and cold. The rumor mill is in overdrive that Timberlake fancies popstar Rihanna, whom he is working with in studio.
When he won his Emmy, 2 weeks ago, Timberlake had told Ryan Seacrest on Emmys red carpet, “I’m excited to be working with Rihanna. She has the world in the palm of her hands.” Timberlakes girlfriends have been either popstars or actresses as the once N Sync singer, parlayed from a boy band, to a solo music artist, then to acting. Girlfriends have included: Britney Spears, Scarlette Johansson, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel.
Timberlake hasn’t dated a pop star for a while. Either Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have yet to make a statement about the rumored split. With Rihanna’s connection to the reigning King of solo artist album sales, Jay Z, whose married to Beyonce, the Obama’s first choice of American pop star performers–politically savyy, Justin Timberlake perhaps wants a piece of that. Artists collaborate together all the time, it doesn’t mean they’re involved per se, as Star Magazine also claims.
Exciting music news though today! Rihanna is bringing sexy back.
From the Emmy Awards 2009 red carpet tonight, when asked, Justin Timberlake told Ryan Seacrest why he is collaborting with pop star Rihanna.
“She has the whole world in the palm of her hand right now and it’s both exciting and an honor to be working with Rihanna.”
A flattering tribute to Barbados’ pop princess after the tough year she’s had to get through. Emmy Award winner Timberlake, is right! Rihanna is set for a huge comeback. She’s already helped Jay-Z get to his 11th #1 album this year already, collaborating with Jay-Z on his hit Run This Town.
With his Emmys win tonight, obviously Justin Timberlake has an intuitive knack at jumping across projects and knowing how to pick them to win the big awards in different entertainment genres. JT’s money is on Rihanna for 2010.
