Taye Diggs is recently divorced and he told Seth Meyers on Late Night yesterday that it has made him an emotional wreck. The actor explained to the NBC host that he acts like a woman suffering from PMS when the littlest things happen to him, like stubbing his toe. And you know what, even though the Murder in the First star might come off a little less masculine after sharing that information, he is still all man to me. The fact that he admitted that shows just how manly he truly is.
Now when it comes to Handsome, not Handsome Vine; let’s be real he’s always handsome. Although I have one request for him, don’t make those videos when you are driving right by my place on the highway I frequent.
Idina Menzel is having an interesting year. First, John Travolta mispronounced her name as the Oscars and yesterday she had a wardrobe malfunction while she was performing at Radio City Music Hall. Just as she was about to start singing Take Me or Leave Me from Rent, her boob decided to leave her dress. The audience told what was happening and she handled it perfectly. Once her boob was back in its place she told the crowd, “Well f*ck it, they’re real!” And that real reaction is why we love Adele Dazeem, I mean, Idina Menzel so much.
I’ve said this before and I will say it again. I am happy she is finally getting the press she deserves because she sincerely is one very talented lady.
Rosario Dawson and Katie Couric both showed up to the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday in off white lace dresses and I can’t decide who wore the over-sized doilies better? Do you prefer the newsanchor’s floor-length gown or the Rent star’s knee-length one? Or do you think both wash them out and make them look duller than Katie’s now cancelled daytime show? I think the latter!
On Saturday night, the cast of If/Then, that includes two castmembers from Rent’s original Broadway lineup, sang the song Seasons of Love to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp raised $8,000 for the charity and along with their new castmates recaptured our hearts with the defining song.
Even though it has been 18 years since we first heard that tune, it is still just as timeless and it will never age. Even if it keeps counting the seconds in the year.
Ever since the Oscars, everyone has wanted to know what Idina Menzel thought of John Travolta introducing her as Adele Dazeem. Well, Billboard finally asked her about it and she told them she Let It Go. Actually what she said was that leading up to her performance she was very Zen and focused, that is until he botched up her name. His screw up threw her for a loop, but then she remembered when she was and got back on track singing the track. So what happened after the Oscars? She said that, “He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we’re buddies and it’s all cool.” Does she hold any resentment towards him? Nope, she also said, “Please. I mean, I’ve only benefited from it.”
That is so true, ever since the Oscars everyone knows her name, Adele Dazeem, I mean, Idina Menzel!
Idina Menzel has gotten more press in the last two days over John Travolta mispronouncing her name at the Oscars than anything she has done in her spectacular career that includes starring in two of Broadway’s biggest hits of the last 25 years, Rent and Wicked, combined. The actress has handled everything with class and has yet to respond to being renamed, Adele Dazeem, by the Hairspray actor.
Now even though the women with such a loud and powerful voice has been quiet, Travolta finally broke his silence. The Grease star told ABC News, “I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought … what would Idina Menzel say, She’d say, Let it go, let it go! Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
So are you ready to let it go or will his embarrassing moment remain frozen in time with you? I am ready to let it go, even though I am happy that Menzel is finally getting the recognition she deserves.
Hot off of singing Let It Go at the Oscars, Idina Menzel aka Adele Dazeem sang the Oscar winning song from Frozen on The Tonight Show tonight. She didn’t have an orchestra to back her up, instead it was Jimmy Fallon and The Roots using instruments you could find in a classroom to help out her powerful voice. The Rent star really Let It Go in this beautiful performance.
BTW I am sure every elementary school teacher is going to hate Jimmy Fallon starting tomorrow. Why? Because millions of girls are going to look for instruments they can find in their classroom to sing their favorite song like Menzel did on The Tonight Show over and over and over again. And it is only going to get worse for parents and teachers because Frozen is coming out on Home Video next Tuesday. Just when they thought it was safe to come out from the cold, Frozen is theirs to own whenever their kid wants to see it.

All John Travolta had to do was introduce Idina Menzel at the Oscars, but I, like everyone, have no idea who the heck he introduced to sing Let It Go. How hard is it to say her name, Ee-Dee-Nah Men-Zell? Who is Adelle Dazeem?
I know I should follow the song and Let It Go, but I can’t. I love you John, but really?
Here is a little tip for the producers next year, make sure all the presenters go to at least one rehearsal and they know how to say the name of the people they are announcing.
