The Approval Matrix: Week of November 19, 2007

Amy Winehouse
Drunk or High?

vs Clooney

George Clooney got into a fight with romance novel coverboy Fabio during dinner at Madeo in West Hollywood on November 2. Fabio and a group of women, including a professional photographer, were sitting at a table next to George and his girlfriend, Sarah Larson. According to numerous eyewitnesses, George suspected the woman was snapping photos of him and Sarah, so he asked her to stop. "I thought you were a nice guy," Fabio said to George as he approached the table. "Stop being a diva." Those were apparently fighting words, because George stood up and the fight turned physical!

Jane Seymour
Breast Implants

Master of Label posted on the blog Perfect Breast, "Actress Jane Seymour, known for her role in “Dancing With The Stars” ... shocked audiences with a scene-stealing topless scene in the 2005 comedy “Wedding Crashers.” But seeing the 56-year-old actress flashing her breasts and getting fondled by Owen Wilson on screen was not the only shocker, as Make Me Heal’s team who watched the film had always maintained that her breasts appeared far too perky to be real. Truth be told, the former Bond Girl is finally admitting to having gotten breast implants after years of denying it, and more precisely, she got them right after landing the topless part in the film."

No "Lost" Until 2009?

From's Vulture section,"...there's a chance that Lost may not return to the airwaves until the fall of 2008 — or even worse, February 2009! — should the WGA strike continue into the new year. If ABC opts to hold new episodes until 2009, the fourth season may run as a long, confusing block of 24 consecutive shows just like, er, 24,..."

"Duran Duran: Red Carpet Massacre"

It was weird to see the entire audience at a Broadway Theatre up and on their feet and dancing. No, it's not Mamma Mia! - it's Duran Duran: Red Carpet Massacre a very limited engagement by the British band probably best know as the first generation of MTV stars."

"Red Carpet Massacre
is divided into three "acts" the first being the new album (called Red Carpet Massacre) in it's entirety. It's always awkward to hear new material from a popular band in a concert format but the new album sounds excellent. After an intermission was the ElectroSet, which was my favorite part of the evening. The band, scaled down, pushed all the way downstage performed an eclectic set that included their own songs like "All She Wants Is" as well as a cover of "Warm Leatherette" by The Normal. And finally, immediately following this was Act Three, entitled "Essential Duran Duran" and that's exactly what it was, but curiously sans some of their biggest, early hits such as "Hungry Like The Wolf" and "Rio"."

"Overall it was a fun, unique evening complete with an actual red carpet and paparazzi out front and Donald Trump sitting in the first box, house-left."

Simon John Charles Le Bon (born October 27, 1958) is the lead singer and lyricist of Duran Duran. He was born in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England and was raised in and around London. (Wikipedia)

Prince "Cease and Desist", along with other prominent Prince fansites housequake and princefams, has been sent a "DMCA takedown notice" and at least two "Cease and Desist" letters from attorneys representing Prince. Their demands for removing content and mandating how we would refer to Prince, if obliged, would essentially mean the end of any discussion of Prince-related topics, hosting of images (even of people\'s symbol tattoos!) and more. We at will not stand for this, and have joined forces with the other affected sites to tell our side of the story and stand up to what are, in our opinion, bullying tactics designed to silence freedom of speech.
