Christina Aguilera is getting a lot of flak today after she botched some of the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XLV. The singer says in her defense that she lost her place and got “caught up in the moment.”
I know performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl is perhaps one of the toughest live performing gigs out there. Even for the most seasoned pro, it’s an immense amount of pressure. While no one wants to see the anthem messed up, I think people need to give Christina a break. I’m sure she’s beating herself up pretty good today about it.
But what do you think? It’s our "Showbiz" Flashpoint: Is it fair to criticize Christina? Post your thoughts below.
Lauren Conrad's new reality series has headed for the hills.
The program won't air on MTV because, Conrad says, the network felt the show was just "too high brow" for its viewers.
The documentary-style series was to follow Conrad as she launched her own line of evening wear, but the project remains on the shelf.
The anxiously awaited post-Super Bowl episode of "Glee" had Coach Beiste and Mr. Schuster trying to bring the football team and show choir together to end the animosity.
The focus was on getting the football team to be more cohesive, but I think this could refer to the show itself.
Anyone who reads this blog knows that for the most part I am a die-hard “Glee” fan, but this season has felt slightly off to me. Between Rachel being a total witch (or whatever rhymes with that) quite often and some of the uneven storylines, I keep waiting for them to totally get their mojo back.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his six-pack abs may one day end up on the big screen. The "Jersey Shore" star has announced that he's planning to leave MTV's hit series to become a movie star.
"There's only so long you can rule the reality world," he tells E! Online. "Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I'm gonna graduate to movies."
The 28-year-old gym, tanning and laundry fanatic likens his situation to that of a great athlete.
He may wear some seriously skimpy skirts in the upcoming gladiator epic "The Eagle," but that's nothing compared to the uniform Channing Tatum wore in his pre-acting career — as a stripper.
"Yeah, yeah, [I] definitely was," he tells CNN of his 1999 Tampa club stint as exotic dancer Chan Crawford. "[I] had a crazy life in Florida, man. I've lived a lot of different lives, and I’m not ashamed of 'em."
That's not to say Tatum would recommend that other actors follow his career path.
It seems Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez were more into each other than the actual game at yesterday's Super Bowl between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
As the Fox network camera scanned the thousands of spectators at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Diaz was caught feeding her New York Yankees beau a handful of popcorn.
"I'm sure Alex is thrilled we just put the camera on him at that moment," Super Bowl announcer Joe Buck said as the PDA-happy pair scored on screen.
