This Will Make It Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice
In an interview with Fox News, Michael Keaton said that he’s spoken to Tim Burton, and if greenlit, both are ready to do a sequel to 1988’s BEETLEJUICE. No other names were mentioned as being involved. Between this and a possible cameo as Batman in the CATWOMAN movie, this is good news to Keaton fans.

Hole is Officially Dead
While many Hole fans have assumed that the band has been disbanded since 1999, lead singer Courtney Love and musician Eric Erlandson announced yesterday that they are officially done.

Eric has been an important part of my family for over 10 years and he’ll continue to be a part of my life.” Erlandson added, “We’re incredibly proud of the music we’ve made together, but it seems like time for both of us to move on.”

If you thought the musical episode was a bad idea…

Britney Spears may be joining the cast of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER next season.
Britney Spears is rerportedly set to spook fellow blonde babe Sarah Michelle Gellar in hit TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
The singer is reported to be appearing in six episodes of the teen series’ next season as a nightmarish demon pitted against Gellar’s do-gooding, undead- battling Buffy. An insider is quoted in British newspaper the Daily Star as saying, “This will be an amazing sight. Britney and Sarah Michelle Gellar are two of the world’s most gorgeous girls. Millions will tune in to see the two of them fighting in their trademark figure- hugging outfits.” Britney is hoping to consolidate her acting career following her debut feature Crossroads earlier this year.

I agree with her!

Jennifer Love Hewitt vocalizes all men’s thoughts and makes feminists scream.
The curvacious Jennifer Love Hewitt thinks more sexy stars should strip down on screen – because it makes movies more interesting. The tempting Hollywood beauty, who shot to fame in the teen horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer, admits she jumps at every chance to squeeze her curvaceous physique into skimpy outfits, because she’s confident her audience will enjoy it. She says, “It comes with the territory. Who wants to go to a movie and see a girl running around in sweats three sizes too big? Nobody. I get it. I put on small tops everyday knowing that as I’m crawling around with the camera down my chest, it was all in good fun. It’s eye candy.”
Yummy!
