News Bites: Hugh Jackman To Open Oscars With Baz Lurhmann?

January 26th, 2009 // 1 Comment

-Word on the street is that Hugh Jackman is teaming with his Australia director pal Baz Luhrman to reportedly produce a giant, Busby Berkley-type musical extravaganza to open the Oscars with this year. If you’ve seen his Australia, Moulin Rouge, or Romeo + Juliet, you know that he’s the dude to go to if you need something like that.  Jackman will be trying to reference all the Best Picture nominees in his act, as well. Oscar producer Bill Condon is also reportedly putting the maximum glitz into the show this year so people don’t fall asleep watching Tyra Banks morph into her “street cred” mode when interviewing people before the show even starts. “Girl, how you doin’?” Cut it out, Tyra. Here’s Hugh leaving Vancouver where he was filming re-shoots for Wolverine.

-Janet Jackson has cancelled the remaining Japanese dates of her tour and cited “the impact of economic crisis” as the reason. This seems slightly suspect as Jackson also cancelled 7 dates of her US tour last year, and some she didn’t even reschedule. Vertigo caused by migraines was given as the cause as opposed to slow ticket sales. Jackson claims she will be visiting Japan with her Rockwitchu tour later in 2009. Also, there are rumors that she’s pregnant. She looks it lately. But she’s also one to fluctuate in weight. So that could be caused from a rib she hasn’t removed yet.

-The lovely one-shouldered gown that Michelle Obama wore on her husband’s inauguration night will be placed in the Smithsonian. “It’s not going to be there tomorrow,” Lisa Kathleen Graddy, curator of
the First Ladies Collection at the National Museum of American History, says. Well no one asked you for instant gratification, Kathy! Michelle’s ivory-colored gown was by Jason Wu.
