Sex tape, superspy, Snoop

Still riding high (that's a relative term) from this weekend's Coachella? By the way, who has the pig? Thought it would be a good time to share some tidbits from the world of music:


Vivid Entertainment (don't pretend you don't know what that is) says it's releasing a sex video of the legendary psychedelic guitarist Jimi Hendrix, whose outrageous performances no doubt inspired many a groupie to dispense with formality and articles of clothing. What better come on than "Are You Experienced?" at eardrum-shattering volume? The tape, bought from a collector, allegedly shows Hendrix with not one but two of the aforementioned women, though there's still some debate about whether it's authentic.

Even death (at the criminally young age of 27) doesn't spare the famous from the YouTube effect.

Hendrix, who got his start playing backup for icons like Little Richard and the Isley Brothers, recorded only three records with his Jimi Hendrix Experience, and all three are now in the Grammy Hall of Fame. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the early '90s.

Multiple Grammy winner Amy Winehouse -- in or out of the big house? -- is rumored to be working on music for the next Bond flick, "Quantum of Solace." Her partner in, um, crime? Grammy winning producer Mark Ronson, who also worked on her hit record "Back to Black."


Seeing as the last few times we've seen her, the painfully thin neo-soul sista was on her way to jail (pictured) and doing shots while balancing a friend's baby on her hip, we'd much rather think of her in the studio creating something Bondish. Gotta be better than Madonna's "Die Another Day," right?

Snoop Dogg and Ne-Yo: Emmy contenders? Tom O'Neill over at Gold Derby begs (begs!) the Daytime Emmy folks to create a guest star category, mainly so Snoop's upcoming appearances on "One Life to Live" and Ne-Yo's drop by on "All My Children" can be considered for the TV backslapfest.

Soap fans out there already know that these melodramatic serials have always been magnets for movie giants (Elizabeth Taylor!) and rock stars (Mick Jagger!) Too late for their Emmys, but there's still time to put the hip-hop giants side-by-side with the likes of Dr. Phil and Judge Judy. That's dope.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
