Hilary Duff has released the video for her latest single, Reach Out, off her November 11 album, Best of Hilary Duff. Are you having deja vu too? You're right. Hilary has ALREADY released a "best of" cd called Most Wanted. This time around the former tween-queen offers two new songs, with a whole new sound...but I'm not sure that's going to fly with fans.
The starlet's new video is sexy and provocative, as are the lyrics, but when you add that to a CD with former hits like "So Yesterday" that are light, airy, and aimed at the tween crowd, you've got yourself an identity crisis. Either put out an entire CD, or don't put one out at all. And decide who your audience is. Lindsay Lohan and co. already have the skanky scene covered. If you're looking to become a more mature artist go in a different direction altogether. For example, Mandy Moore's most recent album proved she's anything but a sugar-pop star, without her having to bare all AND alienate fans.
Duff's recent lapse from the big screen can't help sales. Her last feature was War Inc. which showed in very limited release. Only time will tell if her new go at sex will actually sell.
So watch the video, have a cold beverage, and on Tuesday get out and VOTE!

The Saw franchise put up a good fight, but when push came to shove moviegoers were more in the mood for upbeat dance numbers than death.

Former American Idol and Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson should be riding an emotional high. She just got engaged and she has a new movie coming out. Things took a turn for the worst when on Friday the bodies of Hudson's mother and brother were found shot dead in their South Side Chicago home.
Hudson's nephew, 7-year-old Julian King went missing from the home, and now authorities have intensified their search efforts. An Amber Alert has been issued for the missing child. Hudson has even posted a picture and comments on her MySpace page urging anyone with information to come forward.
Presidential candidate Barack Obama took time out of his campaign to address the issue and give his sympathies to Hudson and her family: "Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy, and we want Jennifer and to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew."

The reason I share this video with you is found in the last thirty or so seconds. Random celebrities breaking out into dance. It makes no sense, it doesn't have anything to do with the video, and yet it made me laugh to the point where I decided it must be shared. So watch, laugh, and then VOTE.

Look out London, if you haven't hear, Miley Cyrus has invaded your homeland...and she's loving it. The tween queen made her first performance in the United Kingdom when she performed alongside Ne-Yo and Fall Out Boy at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
Miley told People, "I've phoned my dad and told him not to expect me home. I want to live here."
I can't blame her. Having spent some time in England myself, I tend to agree with her love for all things British. Cyrus cited fashion and accents as two of the things she can't get enough of.
The soon-to-be sixteen year old won't be bringing a Brit home, however, as it has been confirmed she is dating 20-year old Justin Gaston. Speaking of Justin Gaston, isn't that illegal? He is more than four years her senior. Poor kid won't be getting any for a while...if Miley's purity ring won't hold him off, the law will.

If you haven't seen the Jonas brothers perform then you'll soon get the chance, as the trio will invade American airwaves during halftime of the traditional Dallas Cowboy's Thanksgiving game.
“I was born in Dallas, which makes performing with my brothers at the Cowboys Halftime on Thanksgiving an incredible honor,” said Nick Jonas.
If I'm not asleep on the couch due to the turkey intake than I might actually watch.
Let me just say, that in the next couple of years when the Wolverines are back on top, I'll be the one entertained.

Actress Katie Holmes has been making a splash lately with her singing and dancing abilities. Currently, she is on Broadway in the play All My Sons, but she will make her return to the small screen October 21 on ABC’s Eli Stone.

Following in the wake of the enormous success that this summer’s The Dark Knight has brought, rumors have been swirling that Batman 3 may begin shooting as early as next year.
