RhianBensonNicoleScherzingerDoesn’t the Welsh/Ghanaian singer Rhian Benson bear a resemblance to fellow songstress mixed-Hawaiian Nicole Scherzinger?

In some shots from Rhian’s video “Say How I Feel”, I swear they could be sisters.

C&HHere’s a commercial for C & H Sugar that originally aired in the 1950’s, but re-ran in the mid-ninties. The song is pretty catchy and that little girl doing the hula is the cutest.

KarenSalaKeanuReevesAn Ontario woman named Karen Sala recently filed a claim against fellow Canadian and actor Keanu Reeves stating he is the father of “at least one” of her four children who are now all in their twenties.

At the urging of his attorney, Lorne Wolfson, Reeves has agreed to submit his DNA in order to prove he is not the father of any of Sala’s children. If the results are negative then Reeves will not be paying the whopping $150,000 per month in child support or the $3,000,000 per month spousal support Sala is seeking in the case. (via TMZ)

For those Panic at the Disco fans – no need to start pulling your eyelashes out. According to their official website, it appears lead singer Brenden Urie (he’s Hawaiian on his mother’s side. Go figure!) and co-founder/drummer Spencer Smith are still members while co-founder/guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker are venturing off to do their own thing.

“Though the four of us have made music together in the past, we’ve creatively evolved in different directions which has compromised what each of us want to personally achieve. Over the years, we have remained close and honest with each other, which helped us to realize that our goals were different and that parting ways is truly what is best for each of us. We are all excited for the future, you should be too.”

lolaiolaninakoawolfThe Young, Black, and Fabulous blog spotted Lilakoi Moon aka Lisa Bonet stepping out with her two youngest children, from partner Jason Momoa, in tow. Lilakoi carried her almost-two-year old Lola Iolani while a nanny(?) held Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha.

They’re both so cute! And I am so jealous of Lilakoi still looking youthful with her post-baby glow. Link!

Flashback Friday! (Rush, Rush-Paula Abdul)

abdulreevesrushLet’s go back to the early 90’s to a pre-American Idol Paula Abdul where she tried her acting chops in this long ass melodramatic video with Keanu Reeves for “Rush Rush” from her Spellbound album.

I’m guessing this is set in the 1940’s / 1950’s, yet Keanu always brings out that damn surfer/stoner boy accent which I’m sure didn’t exist yet. He was still hot though.

It’s kinda cute watching them romance each other because Paula looks like his little sister. She’s so tiny! Both of their performances should’ve garnered Academy Awards though *cough*

Vodpod videos no longer available.
