There’s nothing more aw-worthy than seeing celebrities from different industries become fans of each other. Justin Bieber tweeted at U.S. Olympic swimmer, Missy Franklin today that he heard that she’s a fan of his. “Now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD!” and added the very adorable “#muchlove” tag. We wish we saw more of this celeb interaction! Athletes are glued to their headphones before competition to get pumped up in London and some Olympians have confessed their love for certain artists. What we’d like to see is these artists responding with support for the folks who are seriously earning their celebrity status this summer.

  • Ryan Lochte loves Lil Wayne. How much so, you ask? Well, Wayne’s song “Sky’s the Limit” is on Lochte’s pump-up playlist. Not only that but Lochte’s dog’s name is Carter, named after a certain Dwayne Michael Carter, aka rapper Lil Wayne. Oh, yeah, and there are those grills.

  • The Dream Team’s LeBron James loves Big K.R.I.T. James said that Big K.R.I.T’s song, “I Got This” “was one of [the Miami Heat's] theme songs this year.”

  • Natasha Hastings, on the U.S. track and field team, loves herself some Nicki Minaj.She has the songs “Moment For Life” and “Beez In The Trap” on her pregame playlist.

  • Amanda Furrer of the U.S. shooting team loves her fair share of top 40 artists, but also loves country music. She gets ready for action listening to Brooks and Dunn’s “You Can’t Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl.”
  • Lolo Jones, a hurdler for Team USA, gave Miley Cyrus a shout out when saying that she is “embarrassed to say” that she has a Hannah Montana song on her work out playlist.
  • Carmelo Anthony saidthat “one song I listen to before a game is ‘Ain’t No Love in the City’ by Jay-Z.” Carmelo said he can really relate to the song.

  • Michael Phelps listens to electronic dance artists Avicii, Afrojack, and Skrillex because “guys like that give me more of an upbeat tune to get me even more fired up.”
  • The U.S. men’s volleyball team gets fired up to Calvin Harris’ “Let’s Go,” and understandably so! They list the song on their team playlist on YouTube as a part of the “Play Your Athletes” section.
  • Gymnast Aly Raisman has admitted to having a case of Bieber Fever too. Guess it’s going around in the London. So much love from U.S. athletes to Justin Bieber!
  • Beach volleyball queen Misty May-Treanor likes music with rhythm. She said that when she listens to music like this she ”can sustain workouts a little longer.” She recently downloaded and is currently rocking out to French EDM pioneer David Guetta.

Your move, musicians. Show some love for those who love you!

Lana Wachowski Appears In Cloud Atlas Promo; We Wonder If She’ll Be The First Transgender Oscar Winner

On July 31, 2012, in Article, Celeb, eBooks, Entertainment, Fashion & Lifestyle, Movies, Music, Sports, Videos, by nadia

Filmmakers Lana Wachowski , brother Andy and Tom Tykwer made a video for their iTunes Movie Trailer page hyping their upcoming sci-fi romance action flick Cloud Atlas (based on the trailer, it also has old timey ships!), but the internet seems to be less interested in the script based on David Mitchell ‘s novel or any subtle hints as to whether those ladies in the trailer are actually robots or clones. Instead, the rare on-screen appearance featuring Lana, former known as Larry, suggests that The Matrix co-writer and director has completed her transition to a woman

Filmmakers Lana Wachowski, brother Andy and Tom Tykwer made a video for their iTunes Movie Trailer page hyping their upcoming sci-fi romance action flick Cloud Atlas (based on the trailer, it also has old timey ships!), but the internet seems to be less interested in the script based on David Mitchell‘s novel or any subtle hints as to whether those ladies in the trailer are actually robots or clones. Instead, the rare on-screen appearance featuring Lana, former known as Larry, suggests that The Matrix co-writer and director has completed her transition to a woman. So of course we have to skip a billion steps and wonder, is Lana destined to be the first openly transgender person to win an Oscar?

Okay, okay. We know that the Wachowskis are more known for crowd-pleasers like V for Vendetta than for being Academy darlings, but think about it. Cloud Atlas has Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, dazzling effects, sweeping epic love stories and robot lady clones? If this movie isn’t Oscar bait, we do not know what is. Of course, we’re not just hoping Wachowski will be the first openly trans person to get an Academy Award because it would be cool to tell our futuristic grandkids about it. No, more importantly an Oscar won by the Wachowskis would mean that Cloud Atlas actually turned out to be as good as it looks. Seriously, watch the trailer! Our expectations could not be higher!

On a completely unrelated note, do you think Lana is rocking pink dreads as a homage to Run Lola Run? What if you factor in the detail that Tom Tyker directed Run Lola Run? You’re right, you’re right. Save the speculation for awards season.

True Blood‘s Jason Stackhouse Is Our One True Hero

Am I the only one who started really wishing I had an older brother while watching last night’s True Blood ? Jason ( Ryan Kwanten ) gave Sookie ( Anna Paquin ) exactly the talk she’s been needing: “You are who you are because you have Mama and Daddy inside you.” (And this after she accidentally zapped him, but of course he cheerfully informed her, “I’m all right; you got me in the head!”) Last week, too, he gave his li’l sis a gentle speech about how he always thought he was to blame for their parents death and was forever grateful that she never blamed him. This is all cementing my theory that Jason is the most emotionally evolved character in the entire series

Am I the only one who started really wishing I had an older brother while watching last night’s True Blood? Jason (Ryan Kwanten) gave Sookie (Anna Paquin) exactly the talk she’s been needing: “You are who you are because you have Mama and Daddy inside you.” (And this after she accidentally zapped him, but of course he cheerfully informed her, “I’m all right; you got me in the head!”) Last week, too, he gave his li’l sis a gentle speech about how he always thought he was to blame for their parents death and was forever grateful that she never blamed him. This is all cementing my theory that Jason is the most emotionally evolved character in the entire series. While Sookie and Bill have become more self-involved thanks to their suffering, Lafayette still wants to escape his reality at any opportunity, Tara can’t let go of her wretched temper, Sam still wants to play foolish hero, Jessica can’t control her wild impulses and Eric is making the tiniest baby steps toward becoming a compassionate vampire, Jason’s been actually building upon five seasons of life lessons. Here’s the evidence.

He accepts supernatural forces enough to trust them to find his parents’ killer. Early Jason never would have tried any fairy hand-holding.

Searching for his parents’ killer actually seems like a good mission. Better than saving an entire town of inbred werepanthers or crusading against vampires.

He’s learned sleeping with every woman who falls for him, like his old teacher, sometimes makes him feel worse about himself.

And he’s become very tolerant of others’ differences, even newly out and proud vampire Rev. Steve Newland.

None of this is to say we mind seeing the old Jason come through once in a while — a sweet dumb smile and gratuitous shirtlessness is always welcome in these parts!
