The soon to be 23 year has been around for a while now building a strong following before her official launch at the end of last year.  I first clocked GaGa on an episode of ‘The Hills’ as one of the acts Audrina was working with.  

Lady GaGa is Italian/American and hails from New York and has been compared to the likes of Madaonna, she is currently touring with the Pussycat Dolls on their Doll Domination tour and will be hitting a town near you very very soon.

All I can say is I’m glad GaGa decided to go blonde or I’m sure Lily Allen would have something to say.

See Lady GaGa’s new video for ‘Poker Face’ below.

Breakout Star of the Season

Little known young British actor Dev Patel is setting Hollywood alight with his role in Danny Boyle’s new movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.

18 year old Dev from west London is known to British audiences for his role as Anwar in E4 teen show ‘Skins’ but it is his first movie role as Jamal in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ which is really generating buzz. 

Today saw Dev nominated for a SAG Best Supporting Actor gong and although there is stiff competition in this category from the likes of Josh Brolin, Robert Downey Jr. and the late Heath Ledger being nominated shows Dev will be a force to reckon with and has a long career ahead of him.

Garrett Hedlund

I first stumbled across Garrett in the movie ‘Four Brothers’ with Mark Wahlberg, Andre 3000 and Tyrese Gibson, even though Garrett played the slightly camp youngest brother he was hot.  Didn’t really think much of it but have just realised I have now seen every movie this guy has been in and he is awesome.

Garrett has been a totally different person in every movie not just a pretty wooden face like, lets say Orlando Bloom.  Garrett switches up his look and completely transforms into whoever he is playing.  I think the most drastic look I’ve seen him rock so far has to be the character he played in ‘Death Sentance’ with Kevin Bacon.

Now lets forget all the hype Robert Pattinson has attracted at the moment Garrett Hedlund is going to be huge, just thought I’d point you in his direction.

Wow haven’t You Grown

It was brought to my attention by a friend of mine that Josh Peck star of ‘The Wackness’ is the same Josh Peck star of ‘Drake and Josh’.  I was absolutely Flabbergasted as there has been some serious weight loss and buff injections going on.

As you can see from the picture above little josh was cute had the squidgy face thing going on but I have to say the new slimmed down Josh is Hot Hot Hot.

We’ve seen transformations like this before, when a squidgy child star goes into movie star mode stand-out makeovers include Jerry O’Connell and Britanny Murphy.  Both actors appeared in hit films as squidgy teens then returned in their early 20s as svelte superstars. 

I think Josh looks great and just wanted to give him a shout out for all his hard work, apart from filming a ‘Drake and Josh’ movie I hope the adult roles start heading his way.

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is an up and coming Brit Actor who stars in the upcoming film Twilight released 19th December in the UK.


You may have seen Robert before in Harry Potter and the Goblet where he played Cedric Diggory.  Now there’s not much to dislike about golden boy Robert but having met him and seen interviews of him lately I can’t help but think that he’s got the ‘This is boring attitude’ too soon.  With his wild hair and beard, he seems to already be over his 5 months in LA. 

I wonder how he would feel if this all went away.
