Meat Loaf is on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and he talked about his four-letter rant towards Gary Busey on The Celebrity Apprentice. He said up until his appearance on Ellen he had not seen that infamous blow up, because he just couldn’t watch one of the most embarrassing moments of his life. He admitted to her that he acted like a moron and takes full responsibility for his actions.
You can tell in this interview he is truly apologetic for his actions, but I am not sure it is enough for me. I have been a fan of his since I was wee one, and I will admit seeing him lose his temper like that kind of made me lose respect for him. In fact every time I hear it, my back cringes. I am happy to hear he knows he f*cked up by yelling at anyone like that, but it is still going to take me a little longer to listen to his music the same way.
BTW if you have somehow missed that freak out, here it is:
Tonight on Hallmark they are premiere the inspirational well-acted movie Citizen Jane. It is the story of a woman whose fiance’, unknowingly to her, killed her beloved aunt. In one day she lost the man she loved and the woman she loved like a mother and she makes it her personal mission to put the man away who took her away from her.
Ally Sheedy is so believable as the woman who solves her aunt’s murder with the help of a cop who never gave up and by reading the mystery novels her aunt loved so much. Meat Loaf is so good as cop, that part of me thinks that he might’ve made a wrong career choice but then if he had we never would have heard his powerful voice and that would be beyond awful. Sean Partick Flanery looks all nice on the outside in the movie, but you can see him as the evil killer that he plays in it.
The movie is so well done, that you never lose interest it and when the movie ends you can see that this can be made in to a series of movies for the network and you will really want to see more of them. In real life Jane Alexander went on to help other families solve the murders of their loved one. Sadly she died two days before production started and you know she will be watching this movie with her aunt in heaven enjoying it as much as I did and you will. So make sure to make sure to watch it tonight on Hallmark at 9p!
A1 Steak Sauce wants you to Sing For Your Beef! Just like Meat Loaf, they want you to upload a video on YouTube by August 23rd serenading them with your love of their sauce. How much would they love you to do that? The grand prize is a year of steaks and we all know how well (done) A1 and steak go! If you upload a video let me know!
BTW I understand they prob used Meat Loaf for his name you know because it has Meat in it, but I always thought he was a vegetarian? Just saying.
Bonnie Tyler’s song and music video for Total Eclipse of the Heart was destroyed for me today when Dlisted posted this video of someone who changed the words of the song to be the literal version of what was going on in the video. While it will take me ages to once again listen to Jim Steinman’s song the same way, I have to admit I freaking loved what they did to the video. Seriously how brilliant is that?
I don’t how people have the time to come up with stuff like that, but I am so thankful they do!!!
BTW here is the original version of Total Eclipse of the Heart, which do you like better?
Meat Loaf guest stars on House tonight as a sick man who suddenly gets better as his wife gets worse. His wife needs a liver and Meat is willing to give it to her since he thinks he is going to die. But of course House figures out what is wrong with Meat and now a dying man is no longer doing so. Find out on Fox at 8p if he will give up his life to save his wife’s in an episode that is sure to make us cry and hopefully earn Meat Loaf an Emmy nom!!! I love Meat Loaf, so I am so excited for tonight’s episode!!!!
BTW here is a great bonus clip from tonight’s episode!!!
Before Angelina Jolie was the woman everyone Dreamed about, she was the runaway girl that made Meatloaf’s Rock’N’Roll Dreams Come True! Even back in 1983, the 18 year old was just as beautiful. Did she ever go through that awkward stage?
I just think that it so amazing what they do, that I will post everytime I see a new video from CPDRC! That and I am huge fan of Bonnie Tyler’s Holding out for Hero written by the brilliant Jim Steinman!

Coming in March is Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise a documentary about his preparations for his 18 month world tour for Bat of Hell 3! It will start in Burbank, and follow him for the first leg of his tour.
Considering that Meat Loaf is in my top 3 concerts of all time, I am so checking out Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise when it comes out on March!!!
Meat Loaf says that the feud between him and Jim Steinman is over according to Female First! "Our relationship is good. I really want to work with Jim on another project. I spoke to his lawyer recently and he says he does too." He also explained in the interview why Jim Steinman did not work on Bat out of Hell 3, "He was ill. He had had a series of small strokes and needed therapy. I began to doubt if he would be able to do it. I didn't want to sit around for a year and a half to find out he couldn't do it. It was a little selfish on my part because I want to get it done." I am so glad that these two made up and will be working together again because the albums they did together are some of my favorite. I think that Jim Steinman is one of the best all time lyricist and Meat Loaf has one of the most amazing voices, so together it is perfection in my eyes! That and Bat out of Hell 3 was not that good, sorry Meat.
Rolling Stones star Sir Mack Jagger has inspired rocker Meat Loaf to hit the gym and get fit. The heavyweight Bat Out Of Hell star is impressed with ageing Jagger’s stage performances and felt he needed to get into shape if he wanted to maintain his career. Meat Loaf says, "Jagger is buff, and he has incredible stamina… He made me go down to the gym. "I’m not working weights yet, but I’m working with the treadmill." The rocker has already lost a pile of weight, but he doesn’t want to go too far. He adds, "If I weighed a buck-50 (150 pounds), I’d disappear. The wind would blow me away."
