Where have you been Cher?

Browsing through the celebrity blogosphere over the last week or so, my interest was piqued just a little when pictures of Cher were showing up. She hasn't been on the scene recently, so I got to thinking..... What is she up to? Then they announced that she is a presenting with Christina Aguilera at next week's Golden Globe Awards. Interest level rising, so I poked around and have figured it out. Cher is making a new movie ya'll!

The Movie is a musical called Burlesque and according to Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club’s proprietor and headliner. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day.
Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal…
Cher. Singing. Cute boys. Stanley Tucci. Veronica Mars. I am there.
I loved Veronica Mars. Over the Christmas Break I bought and pretty much watched all three seasons of Veronica Mars. Because I have no life. I very much enjoyed this show. It was very witty and well written. And again was a show that was cancelled before it should have been. Stupid TV executives. Or perhaps, it was the stupid viewing public. Kristen Bell is adorable. And I loved Logan Echolls... bad boy to the bone. Sigh. Jason Dohring? Where are you now? What have you been up to? Call me. The theme song is awesome. Even when they changed it for season 3 - made it more noirish - still loved it. Dandy Warholls - A long time age..... we used to be friends... but I haven't thought of you lately at all. I would very much like the Season 4 rumour to become a reality.

I also bought seasons 5 and 6 of Dawson's Creek. Primarily so I could watch the Series finale. Cause it makes me cry like a little baby every time I watch it. Like a baby.
