Spice Girls Land All-Star Choreographer – Starpulse News Blog
Victoria Beckham – Posh Spice – reportedly used her newfound Los Angeles connections to recruit Shankman, who worked on the recent Hairspray movie, and is a judge on So You Think You Can Dance.

Good luck with that. 4 moms who haven’t been on stage together in over 10 years. Bet they do a lot of chair moves, just so they don’t displace a hip.

She fell down the stairs at one show, nearly killed somebody with pyro at another, and now she flashes her Toronto fans.

Beyonce could be the new Winehouse…

Spice Girls

Okay, I’m from Toronto and I still find this a bit…um….”odd”.  We are to believe that Toronto submitted more votes than any other city in the world in order to have the Spice Girls to come here? Hell, they even thank Canada for voting. Ain’t no way in hell that someone outside Toronto is voting for Toronto. It’s a well known fact that anywhere else in Canada outside a 50km radius of the GTA absolutely DESPISES Toronto.  No, I figure the fact that the home base of the largest promoter in the world is in Toronto (and their Canadian roots definitely had a role in having the tour start in Vancouver like, oh, the Police and U2 and now Genesis in Toronto)  has a lot to do with it.  Too bad, too, since I think the idea of voting where to play is a great one.  Oh, did I mention that Toronto is the 4th largest live concert draw in North America?? Hmmm….

So first someone grabs his berries, and then in a different town, someone steals his ring?!?!

I’m thinking Tim & Faith should cut their losses and go back home for a while.

TWICE THE SPICE

TWICE THE SPICE – 3am – Showbiz – Mirror.co.uk

$20mil EACH?!?  Good lord. That is almost $1mil a show right now. That is insane. Truly.

Let me say this, though…if they really are second guessing adding more shows because they don’t want to neglect their parenting, then I’m in support of that. ASSuming it isn’t just a ploy and really they just don’t want to do more shows because of divaish behaviour.

Prince’s free album causes storm with retailers – USATODAY.com

Okay, so this is very interesting to me. First he gave away a CD for every ticket issued to his show. Now he is giving it away with every newspaper sold. First off….how much is he getting from the tabloid? I would assume he is getting the equivalent to what his cut is from the record label. So, he is happy. Tabloid sells more copies than usual, so they are happy. Honestly, though, below the surface of the obvious reason the label is unhappy, do you not think that more records will be sold via word of mouth? It’s only a one day “giveaway” and if you have belief that the product is good enough to sell, then don’t you think you should rely on that belief? Honestly, how many copies are going to be given away for free? Few hundred thousand, max? Big deal.
