A bit annoyed

As most of you have heard, ET and The Insider both made plans to air a never-before-seen video featuring Heath Ledger surrounded by people partaking in drug use. The Insider played a preview of the video, making it seem like Ledger was using drugs, featuring parts when he says "I'm gonna get so much shit from my girlfriend." In the clip, he also says, "I used to smoke five joints a day for 20 years," however, the clip does not show him saying afterwards, "and that's why I got this tattoo [an M, for daughter Matilda] to remind me never to smoke weed again." According to one source who has seen the video, he did not use drugs throughout the entire video. Several celebrities did not support the airing of this material which led ET and The Insider to cancel airing the full video. I couldn't be happier about that. Ledger's death was and still is a great loss to his fans, but felt and experienced most by those closest to him. People tend to forget celebrities are humans foremost and then celebrities. Like anyone else, they deserve to have a peaceful passing and their families deserve peace, quiet and time to grieve without cameramen camping outside their front doors, television stations airing things that don't matter at this point or magazines printing fabricated stories (much like UsWeekly did claiming Michelle attempted to send Heath to rehab. Her publicist has since denied the allegation.)

R.I.P Heath

As most of you know by now, Heath Andrew Ledger died in his NY apartment in the afternoon of January 22, 2008. While his death is ruled as uncertain at this point, foul play and heavy narcotics have been ruled out as causes of death. I first heard of this news from my sister as I was on my way home from a trip. I didn't want to sound crazy and start crying over a celebrity I never met nor ever came close to meeting. Instead I waited until I got home, roughly six hours later to cry in private. Heath was in my top five favorite actors, not solely for his good looks but more importantly for his immense talent. I know people die everyday but we often immortalize celebrities and never think of their passing. Ledger passed away too soon, at the tender age of 28. His future in the business was bright, no, bursting with promise. It's a big loss for the movie industry but worst of all is the loss experienced by Michelle Williams, Matilda (his and Michelle's young daughter) and other family. My mom went through a similar tragedy. Her first husband passed away before she even gave birth to my eldest sister. She raised her alone for 12 years before meeting my father. I only hope Michelle is surrounded by close family and friends during this difficult time. Some may deem it strange for a fan to mourn the loss of someone they didn't know but I've always felt this odd sense of connection to Ledger and his movies. Everyone has one famous person they look up to. He was one of the main ones for me. I've always been a fan, and undoubtedly fond of his gorgeous features. If you recall, upon the separation of Heath and Michelle I joked that he was "all mine" again. I still can't get over it. He was just too young and too talented to die so soon. He will be missed by all his family, friends, and fans alike. I love you Heath, forever!

Obviously, for most of my [few but devoted] readers I'm an anonymous entity. Because that is so, one may be under the impression I'm superficial because I revolve my blog around celebrity, entertainment...and on occasion, fashion news. Those who do know me, understand I have a great deal of passion for humanity and global issues, being a rebel when it comes to war and fighting for peace. So, in the coming weeks I'll be starting another blog regarding such issues. I'll also maintain this one for those who enjoy the dirty/filthy/nitty gritty news on celebs =)

Zac Efron: Emergency Operation

Superstar hottie Zac Efron was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center Tuesday for an emergency operation for appendicitis. His publicist says "he had his appendix removed and is recuperating." The 20 year old can be seen on the cover of the new issue of Details magazine.

R.I.P Brad Renfo

The body of actor Brad Renfo, known for his roles in The Client and Bully, was found dead in his Los Angeles home Tuesday. While the immediate cause of death is uncertain at the moment, many speculate it could be linked to his drug abuse from the past. Renfo was only 25 and a fine actor. Rest In Peace.
