Yesterday was ’80s night on American Idol, and the singing competition had ’80s heartthrob David Hasseloff sing a medley of songs from the era. Those chart topping tunes included Katrina and the Waves’ Walking on Sunshine, David Bowie’s Let’s Dance, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts’ I Love Rock’n’Roll and Culture Club’s Do You Really Want to Hurt Me. The biggest bummer about the last song on that list is that Boy George was still backstage when The Hoff belted out his tune. How like totally awesome would it have been if Boy George was like why do you really want to hurt me?
What was like totally not a bummer for us and was for the Knight Rider, is that neither the contestants nor the audience had any clue who he was or what he was singing. Their faces said it all. Hasselhoff had a more attentive crowd at the Berlin Wall coming down and that says a lot.
Having said that, I totally thought his performance was groovy to the max!!!
When we got to know Jeremy Jackson, he was a just a kid on Baywatch. Well that was a long time ago, and now he is a man. He is very much a man.
The 34 year old prepped for his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother by getting tan. Before he went under the lights, he shared a photo of himself wearing nothing but a towel. Too bad, he was wearing that much.
Yesterday, there were rumors that The Rock is going to star in a big screen version of Baywatch and today he confirmed the news. Dwayne Johnson posted the above picture and said, “‘This is my beach bitch!’ Rumors are true… we’re making #BAYWATCH the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo mo running on the beach… #WhoNeedsMouthToMouth #RedShortsBeHugginABrotha”.
DJ had me at Red Shorts Be Huggin! And if they aren’t, then I am going to be pissed because you know this movie going to be awful. And not in the way that it is so awful, it is actually good. But then again you never know, 21 Jump Street was totally nice surprise. Maybe it will be the same for this movie? Stranger things have happened.
Every now and again, I see a photo of some random celebrities posing with each other and I think what brought this interesting group together like that. The latest photo that blew me away has David Hasselhoff, Rick Fox, Hulk Hogan and Ken Jeong in it. So why is the quartet posing for the camera? They’re just having some fun during a break from filming the future classic Killing Hasselhoff. If this movie doesn’t sweep the Oscars there is something very wrong with Hollywood.
Some guy named Matthijs Vlot took bits and pieces from David Hasselhoff’s two biggest shows, Baywatch and Knight Rider, to recreate the theme to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and what we got is Hoff the chain! So much so, I want the Michael Knight to release an album of TV Themes. Can you imagine him singing the opening songs to Friends, The Jeffersons and Laverne & Shirley to name a few. It would be Hoffrageous!
David Hasselhoff was reunited with his Baywatch lifeguards over the weekend at The Hollywood Show and it is so awesome to see them all together again. Seriously seeing Mitch Buchannon with Brande Roderick, David Chokachi, Donna D’Errico, Erica Eleniak, Gena Lee Nolin, Jaason Simmons, Nicole Eggert, Traci Bingham and Parker Stevenson together like that, makes me wish that they do a reunion movie ASAP. Wouldn’t you watch if they did one?
David Hasselhoff Tweeted this picture of himself in Italy looking for a ride in the rain and now I get what my parents were talking about when they warned me about hitchhikers. Although I have to admit I would probably ignore their advice if I saw him like that. Us ladies show some leg to get picked up by a stranger while he shows a lot of chest hair for that ride!
BTW I wonder what KITT would do if he saw Michael Knight standing there like that? Let’s be real we all know what he would do, he’d put the pedal to the metal.
