Amy Winehouse Booed Off Stage During Her 10th Consecutive Comeback Tour

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Amy Winehouse was booed offstage at a concert in Belgrade, after taking to the stage an hour late, stumbled around, hugging her backup band, throwing a shoe, and slurring words during a concert. I’m curious as to what fans expect when they go to an Amy Winehouse concert at this point. Getting pissed that Amy Winehouse is confused and disoriented at a concert is like getting angry that every contestant on The X-Factor isn’t Susan Boyle. It’s getting pissed at Charlie Sheen is Charlie Sheen. It’s making a financial plan around possibly winning the lottery in 2013. It’s getting mad that you got watermelon on you at a Gallagher show (what were you doing at a Gallagher show?) You knew what you were getting when you bought a ticket to see Amy Winehouse, people of Belgrade. A bomb. [Daily Mail]

  • The Muppet Movie is real, and it’s happening, and you can watch the preview at the link. Encouraging: looks like it follows a similar formula to Muppets Take Manhattan and The (original) Muppet Movie, two very good films. Discouraging: some of the gags in the preview could have been lifted from Muppets In Space, which, despite being by far my least favorite Muppet cinema experience, was still way better than that 10 minutes I accidentally spent watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians that one time. In fact, if they made a Muppet version of Keeping up with the Kardashians, the show would probably be made better simply by virtue of the fact that Muppet assholery is usually funny, whereas watching people with no talent act like idiots and profit makes me want to weep.

  • Clarance Clemons of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band and whose saxophone solos likely inspired hundreds of 19 year olds to get on motorcycles and ride rebelliously out of New Jersey, has died of complications from a stroke he suffered last week. May your passage to the hereafter have a fittingly rocking soundtrack. [MTV]
  • There’s going to be a Scary Movie 5.. Can someone please give Anna Faris some other work? She’s so much more than a series of exaggerated facial expressions reacting to over the top, uninspired Wayans Brothers dick jokes. [Digital Spy]
  • Lance Bass is behind a new reality competition show that pits boy bands against each other in a battle to the death. Rumor has it he’s assembled a murderer’s row of boy band alumni to man the panel- Joey McIntire, Joey Fatone and Bobby Brown. Who can emote the hardest? Who wants me to play games with their hearts the least? What steps do you plan on taking to get me in your world? Who can wear the most ridiculous sorta-coordinated outfits for the longest period of time while keeping a straight face? [Perez]
  • Ton Loc was taken into police custody for felony domestic violence charges yesterday. This is going to cause me to completely reexamine my adherence to the Funky Cold Medina philosophy. [TMZ]
  • Michael Buble is decidedly un-croony about the hockey related rioting that took place in his native Vancouver this past week, launching a series of ads designed to identify rioters. If he released those ads onto a CD and called it “Michael Buble’s Treasury of Disappointment,” you could totally buy it for your mom for Christmas. She’d love it. [Digital Spy]
  • Kristen Wiig had to buy a screenwriting book before writing Bridesmaids. She also wrote the script in 6 days. Kristen Wiig invented Post-its. Kristen Wiig discovered America. Kristen Wiig is in the middle of figuring out the secret to world peace. Kristen Wiig’s mother was a virgin and her father was a carpenter and when she was born she was wrapped in swaddling clothes and lain in a manger. [Contact Music]
  • Alec Baldwin has really developed a knack for writing op-eds that make it sound like he’s dying of pancreatic cancer and hasn’t told anyone. In his latest crankily self deprecating yet wistful column, he waxes regretful about never starring in a singing, dancing onstage Broadway spectacular, which is funny, because I was under the impression that if you were Alec Baldwin and there was something show businessy that you wanted to do, you just talked to your agent or something and they made a few calls on their brick sized car phones and made it happen no matter what, even if you can’t sing at all. Well, if the industry that’s embraced him for decades won’t help you out, maybe the Make-A-Wish foundation can help make that dream come true, little Alec. Keep wishing on a star! [HuffPo]
  • Hopeless romantic Hugh Hefner, a geriatric purveyor of nudity who is, at his core, just a boy who wants to find a girl with surgically enhanced lips, orange skin, white hair, and who is young enough to be a multiple-generations-removed descendant to let him put his balls on her chin, spent the day of his cancelled wedding smiling faintly and telling people he was going to be just fine. Something tells me that this entire affair, from the engagement to the last-minute wedding cancellation to Crystal Harris‘ fledgling singing career and fumored dalliances with Dr. Phil’s son, are about as real as the breasts that grace the pages of Playboy. []
  • Meanwhile, Hugh’s runaway bride Crystal Harris, spent the day contributing to society with noted famewhore Heidi Montag. Did I say contributing to society? I totally meant partying in bikinis in Las Vegas, and from the look of the pictures, having a boobadelic time. [OMG]
  • Bonnie Wright, the actress who plays Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, looks like a combination of January Jones and Shirley Manson on the cover of a British fashion rag. Probably because of magic. [Daily Mail]
