If you are like me and were wondering why Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom haven’t posted photos of themselves together since Christmas, there is a good reason. That is because they split.
The couple who dated for a year gave People this statement, “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.” Is anyone surprised? They were doomed from the start. Plus, with her latest song bombing, she needed a talking point for the press to talk to her about something other than her music. Now, they have it.
Not only that, now that she is free to be rumored to be dating several famous men, it will extend her 15 minutes which are close to being over.
Orlando Bloom is opening the Victoria’s Secrets Fashion Show next week. He might not be an Angel like his ex-wife, but looks like he is a bunny like a Playboy Playmate I am assuming he dated at one point. Not saying he did, but he seems like the type who would.
Granted now he has settled down with Katy Perry and look what she has done to him.
Ellen DeGeneres challenged Orlando Bloom to a game of Heads Up, and the actor kept lifting up his shirt during it. I get why he did it to demonstrate skinny dipping and strip poker, but why did he do it for shoplifting? Not that I am complaining. And I am so not complaining about his Twerking. Werk it, baby. Werk it!
Romeo and Juliet has been redone so many different ways since William Shakespear published it in 1597, but the most recent take on it might be the worse one of them all. Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad are starring in the lead roles on Broadway. According to Playbill, “In this new production, the members of the Montague household will be white, and the blood relatives of the Capulet family will be black. While race defines the family lineages, the original cause of the â€˜ancient quarrelâ€™, passed down by successive generations to their young, has been lost to time. Shakespeareâ€™s dramatization of the original poem sets the two young lovers in a context of prejudice, authoritarian parents, and a never ending cycle of â€˜revenge.â€™ Against this background, the strength of their love changes the world.”
Umm isn’t Bloom old enough to be Romeo’s father? He is way too old for the role. By not making the play about two teens takes away from the premise of what Shakespeare wrote over 400 years ago.
BTW Playbill also says that they will be releasing 100 tickets at $20 each for all the shows and I think that $20 too much for this production.
I hope that this show is killed in the preview stage and never actually opens on Broadway at the end of August. I mean we can’t let them destroy such a classic because if they get away with once, they will keep doing it.
