To heck with Madison Square Garden, we're gonna play here. We've got a new record coming out today, and we thought, 'What better way to celebrate than to come and bust at Penn Station?' But you don't need to throw money!" After his performance in New York City, Keith boarded the Amtrak Acela and headed to Philadelphia. In The City of Brotherly Love, he performed for hundreds of fans at 30th Street Station.Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom" was among the five-song show, and according to theWashington Post, Urban said of the John cover, "It was either that or I do a Philly cheesesteak theme song."

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    It seems that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's wedding date has leaked and the couple is not too happy about it. A tabloid recently published that the award-winning couple will be married on May 14, 2011. Blake told a North Carolina radio station that he heard Miranda making a fuss about the tabloid report on their bus, and he asked her, “Is that right?” Miranda got mad all over again. Shelton said, "That didn't go over too well 'cause apparently it's a big deal to not know when your wedding day is." Blake himself isn't sure of the actual date. He confessed, "I took off the week she said to take off. It's in there somewhere

  • McDonalds Happy Meal banned?

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins


    I don't bring my son to McDonalds often - I try to avoid it myself just to keep money in my pocket and weight of my waist...but when we do go it's a treat!  I must say I have mixed feelings about San Fransico banning the Happy Meal...could it have a trickle down effect and end up getting Happy Meals banned Nationwide?  I guess I would be a little sad, but really the Happy Meal isn't that bad if when you opt to have apples instead of fries, have milk instead of pop and leave the carmel out of the equation.  A nice treat every now and then.  What do you think?

  • NFL Bozos

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins



    Taken from the Boys Room and

    Is there a sports figure you just can't stand?

    People are stillll talking about Randy Moss getting cut from the Minnesota Vikings earlier this week.  Now Randy is not the only nut job "diva" in the NFL.  There are plenty of crazies and bozo's to go around!  According to The Pig Skin Doctors here's a list of some of the biggest bozos in the NFL:

    Michael Vick - An easy target...he flushed $100 million dollars down the toilet when he got himself tossed into prison for dog fighting.  (personally if you are cruel to animals you deserve the same treatment in my opinion!)

    Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco - the wonder twins, more famous these days for being selfish and grand standing than actually catching passes!

    Brett Farve...yep the yearling waffling annoys a lot of NFL fans...and of course there's that texting thing

    Jay Cutler - moody and arrogant...need they say more?



  • LeeAnn Rimes and Shape magazine...

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins



    The editor-in-chief at Shape magazine, Valerie Latona, apologized to readers when some of them complained about having a LeeAnn Rimes on  the cover again after she confessed to adultry.  Some readers (a small percentage) felt Shape was glorifying LeeAnns affair. Then Latona backtracked her's more of the story as reporte by USA Today...

    "My comments have been taken out of context. I used the words of the few unhappy readers who wrote in." Latona continued with, "I stand by the fact that LeAnn's story is compelling - and her courage and strength in the face of so much adversity is compelling.  That is why I put her on the cover of Shape for what is now the third time. " She added, "The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost six million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a 'husband stealer' and a 'terrible mistake for Shape.' I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy - as I have done for other cover stars in the past."  

    LeAnn appears to be a bit surprised about the Shape editor's original statement since the magazine is throwing her a party this week to celebrate her third Shape cover. On Friday, Rimes took to Twitter to share, "Just so all my fans know, I'm getting to the bottom of this.  Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and congrats for being on their cover for the 3rd time. I find this very contradictory. I love you all."

    Hmmmm, I see Latona as just trying to please both her unhappy readers and her "cover girl" Nothing wrong with that...but you can't please everyone!
