Uprising in Egypt Continues!

For a second straight week the people of Cairo, Egypt and other Egyptian cities have been in protest of their President, Hosni Mubarak.  Tensions in Egypt have been brewing for quite some time now, as the gaps between the poor and upper class have continued to blossom out of control, and also because of a lack of basic civil liberties.
They are fighting for freedom of speech, press, assembly, and a right to the Democratic process.  Also at the forefront is economic reform.  It has becoming increasingly more difficult for Middle and Working Class Egyptians to afford both housing and food costs.  Things are so bad that many aren't able to marry, because they can't afford the taxes and fees for the licensing.  There are doctors, teachers and  government workers who are struggling to buy food after they pay their housing rents.
At this point it appears that "revolution" is near.  The citizens are calling for Mubarak to step down.  The gatherings have become larger and the army has refused to fire at the People.  In an attempt to gain some control over the situation, President Mubarak suspended cellphone and internet usage over the weekend.  That didn't stop YouTube Videos, Tweets and Facebook feeds from getting out.  
Tomorrow they have declared the "March of Millions" where millions are expected to gather in Tahrir Square. It is reported that the government will block cellphone usage once again and maybe internet coverage as well.

Lyrics to, Born This Way (First Single):
Intro

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'cause you were Born This Way, Baby


Verse
My Mama told me when I was young
We are all born stars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir
"There's nothing wrong with lovin' who you are"
She said, "Cause he made you perfect, babe."
"So hold your head up girl and you'll go far,
Listen to me when I say"



Chorus

I'm beautiful in my way

Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way
Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way

Rihanna's "S&M": A Video First Look (Preview)

Rihanna S&M
Rihanna's video for her third single, S&M,  will debut on 2/1/11 on VEVO.  In the video it is said that Rihanna will be taking on her critics and the paparazzi as will.

In the "First Look" footage, she can be seen holding the paps hostage.  That's definitely a role reversal, as I'm sure that she's felt like a hostage to them many times.

She sports different shades of pink latex and appears to stay true to the song's name sake, as she has an assortment of handcuffs, whips and chains.  As can be seen in the video clip below.

080610_willow_smith_103250399
It looks like the Smith Family might be remaking another childhood favorite:  Annie!  This time however it looks like it will be Willow starring in the leading role.  Annie was one of my favorite movies as a little girl.
I L-O-V-E-D IT! I have a special connection to the movie.  I'm glad to see it being re-done.  Can't wait to hear Willow's version of Tomorrow.  And how will they re-do the famous red dress?
Dad Will is said to be producing the re-make -via- his and Jada's production company, Overbrook Entertainment.  Sony Films will release it.  According to Variety, Jay-Z will "oversee"  the music for the film through Roc Nation, which is also Willow's record label.  Jay has a bit of history with the film's music, as his first big pop hit, Hard Knock Life, samples one of the musicals biggest numbers.

For over a year now there have been rumors that Beyonce' would star in a remake of the classic movie, A Star is Born.  It will be the fourth time the film is being remade.

The original debuted in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.  The most popular of the remakes came in 1976.  It starred Barbra Streisand alongside Kris Kristofferson.

The producers of the Streisand version, Billy Gerber and Jon Peters, are also said to be producing the current remake. The film is being headed by Warner Bros.  At present, they're still searching for the right leading male, but names being mentioned are Will Smith, Robert Downey, Jr. and Jon Hamm.  The original film's plot was about an aspiring actress who falls in love with a troubled movie star,  who helps her get her big break. It is also being reported that this version will be an all out musical production.
