  • Barbie Movie

    Can't imagine this movie will be too good.  Sony pictures and Mattel (the toy company) are teaming up to produce a live-action comedy built around Barbie.  Apparently, the film will have Barbie being like a modern-day Mary Poppins who uses both her personal and professional skills to improve people's lives.

  • Ronald McDonald Gets New Threads

    And if you make your way into a McDonald's anytime soon, you might see a certain clown with a new Look.  Ronald McDonald apparently keeps up with clown fashion because his wardrobe just got redesigned.  The yellow jumpsuit with red striped sleeves have been replaced with a mustard yellow cargo pants and red and white striped rugby shirt.

  • Avril Lavigne New Music Video Taken Down

    Avril Lavigne has a new music video out called 'Hello Kitty'.  In the video Avril dances around in a tutu while yelling Japanese phrases all while a bunch of Asian dancers, are behind her.  It was up for awhile until people started saying it was racist.  It has since been taken down.
