‘Sparkle’ turns dull, Cyrus tweets new ‘do

Hello fellow pop culture enthusiasts, it is I, Anthony, and I’m here to bring you all the things that had people buzzing this past week.

             All of the ‘80s, and some of you ‘90s babies, were jumping for joy when ‘90’s pop band 98 Degrees reunited to perform their classic hits on the Today Show on Aug 17. The band announced a subsequent tour and the possibility for new music.

Ironically, this came after other 90s pop band Spice Girls performed at the closing ceremonies of the Olympic Games in London. Now, if only we could get BBMack back together.

Twitter was abuzz last week when former Disney star Miley Cyrus posted a picture of her new haircut. The new do could only best be described as a Draco Malfoy meets Edward Scisssorhands.

After Twitter users started to decry the do, Cyrus once again took to her Twitter and responded to the negativity by saying, “My dad @billyraycyrus use to tell me ‘Opinions are like ass holes everybody has one’ LOVE my hair <3 feel so happy, pretty and free.” Apparently, not only did Billy Ray Cyrus pass on his vocal ability to his daughter, he also passed on his knack for bad hairstyles.

            The highly anticipated last film of the late Whitney Houston “Sparkle” premiered to raving reviews from critics. While reviewers were quick to praise the cast performances, the film was a dud at the Box Office debuting in fifth place and grossing a mere $12 million.

I guess all the people that were quick to say “R.I.P Whitney Houston” weren’t in enough grievance to spend $10 on a movie ticket.

In other R&B news, diva Rihanna sat down with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” to discuss her music career, business ventures and love life.

            While Winfrey did focus on multiple topics, most viewers tuned in to hear about her volatile relationship with former boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown.

            The singer stated that she still loves Brown and that they are currently friends. She even admitted to hanging out as recently as a few weeks ago on a yacht in St. Tropez, France. 

While Rihanna was getting chummy with Oprah down in Barbados, Brown’s current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, was allegedly getting chummy with a liquor bottle in a Washington, D.C. nightclub.

I guess the thought of RiRi still bumping and grinding with Breezy was too much for Tran to handle.

In another episode of “when over-paid athletes attack”, Miami Dolphin’s Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was dropped from the team’s roster after getting into a physical altercation with his wife, “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada.

The incident allegedly started after Lozada found a condom receipt, {really}, in the vehicle they were riding in. After exchanging words, Johnson allegedly head butted Lozada, prompting her to call authorities. Johnson was arrested and released from jail the next day.

Why is it so hard for athletes to just do their job and go home without acting the fool?

Lozada quickly filed for divorce, ending their 41-day marriage.  Somewhere in the world Kim Kardashian is smiling.

            It was a busy week in the world of entertainment. Until next time, my fellow pop culture addicts!
