Or Madonna?
Or Luke Wilson?
Or Bubba Idolsinger?

I mean, what the hell happened? I got texted today the name of someone or other's baby. I don't like babies and don't even know this woman OR her baby. Why do I need to know this stuff?

Aren't you all getting tired of this media crap all the time? It's retarded!

You know what I'd like? I'd like a National Day Off From Entertainment News!

and could you make it tomorrow, please?

I guess "tomorrow" would mean today and I think it's too late. No one notified ABC and the Hollywood Minute was aired on schedule. Poor Drew Barrymore couldn't get along with her latest boyfriend. Maybe she should try women, may last longer. And then there's Matthew McConaughey and his Brazilian girlfriend who have just become parents. Now there will be 3,000,000 upset female viewers because they'll never get the call for a date with him. This is tear-jerker stuff!!

Maybe if we hurry and send out the memo now, tomorrow can be National Day Off From Entertainment News. But, let's make that International Day Off. Did you know ABBA will never perform again????????????????

People are more and more fascinated because they're bored with their own lives, I think. Hollywood wouldn't air those programs if people didn't tune in.

It's sad that more people seem to care about such gossip than the wars and famine and such going on. Then again, maybe people feel they "know" these celebrities and it makes them feel part of the world to keep up with what's going on.

I don't think you can moan, you obviously subscribed to something to text you news. couldn't you ask to be unsubscribed to moronic celebrity news?
By the way, were you aware that the Jolie twins will be born in the next two weeks?

And they're now looking for a nanny for their babies!

Sometimes it's hard not to know about it when it's shoved to your face when reading news websites.

I've never heard of Luke Wilson. Or Bubba Idolsinger. Bubba Idolsinger? What's a Bubba Idolsinger? Sounds like a brand of chewing gum!

Your wish is granted Sir Piecar! I have waved my magic wand and you will hear no entertainment news tomorrow.

Actually, I never have a problem with arty-farty types of the show-biz world. I've not watched the telly since Boxing Day, do not buy newspapers and only have the radio on for an hour in the morning and afternoon driving to/from work.

I stopped buying magazines yonks ago -all you saw on the front cover was some actor/actress dude wearing fake smile, over-priced clothing and a bad hairdo. I mean really! Those magazine editors must think we haven't got a brain in our heads and think all we want to do is read page after page of unadultered crapola about Hollywood. I mean do I really care that some bloke had a fight with his missus, or got caught bonking his mistress at the 14th hole on the golf course? Or that some skinny, bones stickingout actress has gone and had a boob job? Or that this one and that one have "split up"? Puleeeze.

I only know this because the Hollywood Minute told me so...

Luke Wilson is the youngest of 3 brothers - all are actors. Owen Wilson is the most well-known (middle) followed by Luke (youngest) and then Andrew (oldest). Not long ago, they made their first movie together though I don't recall the name and wasn't all that interested.

As for Bubba Idolsinger - pick one. Piecar is referring to the American Idol TV program where most of the male finalists tend to be bubbas (rednecks, etc). I don't know this for a fact as I have never watched the program but having seen the commercials, it appears the term fits. (I could be wrong.)

Now, about that magic wand... NO ENTERTAINMENT NEWS TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ABBA will NEVER perform to-gether again? Don't tell me that. Wait a sec...You did.

I am crushed. I won't see Agnetha. I like Agnetha. Oh, well, There's always John Denver. I have always liked John Denver and his music. I haven't liked him like I liked Agnetha. It's a different like, if you understand that.

Well, I REALLY like Sarah Brightman. We were at her concert called Harem....I was smitten.

Are you sure ABBA won't perform to-gether? Maybe if I ask them.....

Sorry to have been the one to break the news to you. Seems there's no motivation to regroup as they are at a loss for 70's pop-rock lyrics equaling Honey, Honey. You can give it a try, but I don't think any amount of arm-twisting will get them to reconsider. Seems bribery is out too. What about their fan base? Have they no loyalty? Don't they realize we love seeing aging stars rehash their old hits? Maybe you and Jagger can pen a little note explaining their wayward judgement. Go for it!

John? Well, rumor has it he's been working on a deal with Starland Vocal Band from beyond the grave and there's talk of a comeback. At least that's something. ABBA should take the hint. I like John. He just got sappy after Annie divorced him. (Don't they all.) Since he had a personal relationship with God (now that was a bad movie), he may be able to intervene on the ABBA front too. Miracles do happen but then the Vatican gets involved and they don't like ABBA. They're Steven Tyler fans. Or, is that Liv Tyler fans? I always forget.

ps: I thought today was no entertainment news day? I think someone has a faulty magic wand that needs mending...
