Blue Carter Ivy's birth,Halle Berry's engagement (or not!?) and Heather Locklear's hospitalization are just some of the major celebrity stories that had me talking (and tweeting) this week.Here are the ones I loved hearing about...and the others which I hope will soon fade away.
__1.The takeover of Blue Ivy Carter.__The world woke up on Sunday to the news that Jay-Z and Beyonce'sspecial production Blue Ivy Carterhad entered the world and I've been consuming every tidbit about this world-famous tot ever since.I've loved dishing on her name (did ya know there arelots of celeb kids named Blue?),hearingher musical debuton Jay-Z's very personal new single "Glory" and playing with theBey Bey Name Generator.(Here are the Obsessed team's Bey Bey Names: Meredith--Sapphire Bamboo,Megan--Violet Pea,Lauren--Red Holly,Caitlin--Pink Palm,Jessica--Bronze Blossom and me--Tangerine Mustard.) Less interesting,however,were the endless stories about the Carter family hospital stay and whether or not they got special treatment.Zzz...Wake me up when they sell the baby pictures.
Bottom line: So Obsessedwith this baby
So what should we name the baby...Mary,Lisa,Anne...Blue?2.Robert Pattinson's head.The *Twilight *star debuted a supercropped 'do at thePeople's Choice Awardsthis week.And he also grew a beard to about the same length of his hair.While I think the British hunkity hunk looks pretty hot no matter what,I'm hoping that he grows his hair out again soon.Are you listening,Kristen Stewart?I'm counting on your to set him straight.
Bottom line: So NOT Obsessedwith this look
3.Heather Locklear's troubles.I love me some Heather Locklear--all hail Amanda Woodward!--so I always keep tabs on what the eternally young actress is up to.(Plus,she was engaged to my first love,Jack Wagner.) So reading all therecent reportsof her hospitalization (she was in the I.C.U.but is out now) have been troubling.I hope she gets all the help she needs and recovers quickly...then how about a new prime-time show for her to stir up some trouble on?
Bottom line: So Obsessedwith her getting better
4.Sinead O'Connor's love life.In the last month,the Irish singer got married,ended her marriage,reconciled with the guy,THEN broke up again!I have no interest in riding the roller-coaster than is her relationship drama and wish the whole story would come to a screeching halt.Methinks that if she didn't give the play by play in her blog and on Twitter,she'd be much better off.So would the rest of the world.
Bottom line: So NOT Obsessed.Wake me up with the drama is over.
__5.Halle Berry's "engagement." __Is she or isn't she?After being seen out and about with a flashy new ring,the jeweler who made the ring came forward and said Halle "I'll Never Get Married Again" Berry accepted a marriage proposalfrom boyfriendOlivier Martinez.But before we could pop the cork on the bubbly,Halle's campdeniedthat she's engaged.And now a rep for the jewelery company is saying they don't even know if it's their ring.I just want to get to the bottom of this news and celebrate if she's in fact betrothed because,if anyone deserves some luck in love,it's Halle.
Bottom line: So Obsessedwith her love life...and really hope she's met her match
