  • We thought that Celine Dion imitating Madonna was strange, her Michael Jackson is even odder. [Bore Me]
  • Tom Cruise freaks out some Yahoos. [Valleywag]
  • Are Hilary Clinton and John McCain on the campaign trail for 2008 already? [Queerty]
  • Jonathan Antin got into an argument with a girlfriend, back in 1997. The fight became physical. A few pushes later, Antin ended up in jail — busted for domestic violence. It seems as if he’s still dealing with those anger issues. [TMZ]
  • How did we find the out about Jonathan Antin‘s brush with the law? We hand picked this one from the dozens of emails that we receive each day from TMZ publicist, Gillian Sheldon. [Gawker]
  • Kate Moss has done a good deed. She has set up a new charity set up in remembrance of her friend who died in 2004′s Indian Ocean tsunami. [SFG Daily Dish]
  • More on Scientology from the inside (which is composed of huge amounts of hot air). [Papermag Blogs]

    I am so confused. WHY is Celine Dion impersonating other singers? WHY? WHY? WHY? Is this part of her show now? Has she really run out of ideas? What the hell?

    guessing that those clips are from the 80s … look at the eyebrows and the lack of perma-tan! this was probably from a bad french-canadian television variety show or something.

    Oohhh, that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up.

    I hope you’re right, or Celine might be added to my list of wackyheaded celebrities like Tom Cruise.

    MMM said is correct. In that show where Celine imitates M.J., she also imitates other popular local French singers. Wacky is not the right word. A little goofy is more like it. But aren’t most teenagers a bit goofy? You got to put this clip and the other clip of her imitating Madonna in context. These are variety shows in which she is part singing, part acting. These shows are between around 1985 to 1988, roughly between 18 to 21 years ago!!!! She could barely understand English but she took risks. She was doing fine as a local star since 1981 but was trying hard to create a new image and be noticed by someone who could give her, her first big break into the U.S. market.

    Big music companies don’t invest as much to find that special jewel in the rough as they did back then, because they don’t profit as much from CDs. Less people buy CDs. and singers earn a larger portion on the road. If Celine were a teenager today Sony probably wouldn’t have considered her worth the trouble to promote and she could have remained unknown to the rest of the world!
