OMF(amous)G - Russell Brand Files for Divorce

Whelp, just in time for the new year, Russell Brand files for divorce from Katy Perry as TMZ just reported.
Apparently this split is coming as a "shock" to Katy Perry, although I don't see how since it's been in the news for weeks now that they have been having problems. The couple had been married for a little over a year. They seemed like such a good pair, but I guess they just didn't "mesh well".

Click here to see the TMZ post, they will update it as they gather more info on this breaking story:

The Black Keys - El Camino

The Black Keys new album El Camino is good GREAT. Indie/Blues/Folk/Rock at its finest. This record took a few listens before I took to it, which is usually a good sign. It takes a little time to wrap your head around the overall feeling and theme to this record. From front to back, it's another fabulous addition to their library. The album really begins to shine halfway through, literally halfway through. Run Right Back packs a heavy punch, Sister is hauntingly smooth, and Stop Stop is full blown pop genius. My only issue with this release, is that I feel as if Lonely Boy is misplaced in the tracking, it is such a gem, and would fit amazingly as an album ender. (just my opinion). Go check it.

Toyota's Awesome Fun-Vii concept car


Have you ever wished your car could change to fit your mood? Wanted to tell that person who cut you off or is riding your tail EXACTLY how you feel? Well, Toyota's new concept car, the Fun-Vii, will allow you to do just that! You would be able to create custom graphics on the exterior AND the interior display and change them with a simple tap of an app.

Toyota envisions the car as a fully interactive car that is connected to the Internet and a mobile network of other vehicles. Besides just being an awesome and fun car, the the Fun-Vii will alert the driver to potential road hazards such as a car in the blind spot or cars ahead making emergency stops.

The car features would be controlled by a smartphone or tablet app, so changes could be made inside or outside of the car. Pretty neat, huh? Until you accidentally tweet naked pictures to your car's exterior....oh my.

Video screenshot by Amanda Kooser/CNET

If you're ever in Odenville, AL and craving some meat... from convenience store, Lil Mart has got you covered.  This meat vending machine is a pilot product from a new company called Smart Butcher.  They hope to start expanding to campground and state parks.  The machine accepts $1 bills, $5 bills, and credit/debit cards.  It offers a wide variety such as pork steaks, sirloin, ribeye, sausages, etc.

Want an 8 ounce cut of sirloin? That will only cost you $3.99! You are able to inspect the meat before paying.  Each neat meat is individually sealed and refrigerated so it's safe for dinner.  Who would have thought you could get some gas AND dinner at the gas station??

OM(usic)FG - The Killers Sing Christmas!


Las Vegas natives, The Killers, haven't had a studio album since 2008, they release a new single every year to support RED, the AIDS fighting charity. In 2008 they had a collaboration with Elton John & Neil Tennant (Pet Shop Boys) and in 2009 they made a Spanish influenced ditty with Wild Light & Mariachi El Bronx. This year's "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball" is an upbeat song (now avaialable on iTunes) that creates a vivid picture of cowboys and ranch hands partying at Christmas time. You can listen to an unofficial stream of the song here.

The past 6 years of benefit songs are available for download on iTunes. You'll get 6 songs for $5.99, and be supporting a great cause all at the same time. Also, look forward to a new album from these guys. They have been in the studio this year working on their fourth album.

OM(usic)FG – Madonna set to play Super Bowl Halftime show

Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage


It’s not too hard to follow up the horrendous Black Eyed Peas' 2011 halftime show, but let’s hope Madonna’s still got the panache to carry out the performance. With a new tour and album on the horizon for 2012, Madonna will give us a sneak peek of some new material during the upcoming halftime show. It is speculated that she will perform the first new single “Give Me All Your Love” which features Nicki Minaj and MIA (who may perform with the pop diva!)

The Super Bowl will take place on February 5th in Indianapolis.

Dwight Yoakam and Tyler Reeve at Wild Bill’s – 12/3/11

TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT!  Legendary country musician Dwight Yoakam will be hitting the stage at Wild Bill’s in Duluth.  He has recorded over 21 albums, racked up over 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts and has sold an impressive 25 million records.  His 1986 debut LP Guitars,  Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. launched his career, and he has been enjoying a incredible ride since then.
Country greats such as Johnny Cash and Chris Isaak have acknowledged Yoakam’s talent and creativity.  His song Honky Tonk Man was the first country song ever played on MTV.  Yoakam hasn’t always stuck solely to the “country music” genre and has covered many different songs from rock & roll, punk, and the blues.  In 2011, he recorded a duet with pop starlet Michelle Branch.  The song called Long Goodby” was available as a free download on Branch’s website.




Also appearing is Atlanta’s own Tyler Reeve.  He draws influence from the “good ‘ol country” such as Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr, and Waylon Jennings.   Reeve and his band always put on a full of energy, great show and will be a perfect combination with Yoakam.  Reeve’s toured with many national country acts like Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town, Eric Church, Jack Ingram, and Eli Young Band.    Go find him on Facebook and “LIKE” him!




Tyler Reeve plays from 9 - 10pm, and Dwight Yoakam goes on at 10:30.  Tickets are $30 general admission / $40 at door general admission or $60 per seat at a table of 4.  Wild Bill’s is a great venue, and you get your money’s worth in great performances.

OM(ovie)FG - Young Adult Sneak Peak

My friend was lucky enough to get a ticket to the screening of Charlize Theron's new movie.
Young Adult will be hitting theaters, Dec. 16th. Here's a peak:
Following her divorce, 37 year old Mavis Gary (Charlize) realized her life is not how she expected it to be. This hot-mess decides to go back to her small hometown in Minnesota to get her high school/college ex-boyfriend (Patrick Wilson) back even though he is now happily married with a kid.The awkwardness that comes from this sticky situation is almost painfully uncomfortable at times. That being said, the idea of returning to a time in your life when things seemed easier and perfect is definitely relatable. The movie tackles the drama that follows her decision to get back her ex in a very realistic way rather than a "there's-no-way-that-would-ever-happen-in-real-life" way which was a refreshing change of pace for me. So if you want a realistic drama with a couple of laughs thrown in, and don't mind awkward uncomfortableness then I would definitely suggest you see this movie...but wouldn't spend crazy movie theater prices for it.
The perfect setting to enjoy this movie is at home on the couch in your comfiest pjs.

Talib Kweli, Ahmed Soultan and others - "People Power"

                         Warner Records    &      http://www.yannicklecontestudio.com/


A great new project out of Africa has created a song to support the climate movement there. In the past 16 years, there has been no action from the United Nations climate talks, and the people are getting frustrated. Enter a group of musicians from throughout Africa and around the world created a “theme song.” The song was written to tell the truth about how the climate change is affecting Africa and also in the hope of inspiring more people to join in the cause and make the future better for everyone.

The song is called “People Power” feat Talib Kweli, Zap Mama, Angelique Kidjo, Ahmed Soultan, Zolani Mahola (From the group who did the world cup song Waka Waka with Shakira: Freshlyground ) and Jabulani Tsambo. You may recognize a few of these names: Talib Kweli has collaborated with many American rap/hip hop/R & B artists such as Kanye West, Common, Mary J. Blige, and Faith Evans. We also featured Ahmed Soultan in a Sept. 2009 (Ahmed Soultan - Taste of Music in Morocco) after I heard him on the radio while visiting Morocco.

While the song isn’t available in the US on iTunes, you can listen to a soundcloud version of it. **CLICK HERE**

Some of it IS in English, so don’t worry. It’s a great jam & hopefully draws a lot of attention to this cause.

Got Hanson Beer?

Photo Credit: Bryan Johnson

Yep, it’s true. Those shaggy haired boys from the late 90’s are going into a new line of work. Hanson’s all grown up now and creating their own brand of beer playfully named “Mmmhop” inspired by their 1997 hit “Mmmbop.” The guys (Isaac, 31, Taylor, 28, and Zac, 26) announced the new venture on Monday and they’re hoping the fans dig it. Zac says “It’s vital our fans have trust in everything Hanson do. We are soon going to be selling our own beer. I’m not joking – Mmmhop IPA anyone?” The beer expected to hit shelves early next year will be an Indian pale ale. Bottoms up!

Axl Rose gives it to Atlanta like a RockStar should!




Long, hard and LOUD!

Guns N’ Roses Concert
11/2/11 Philips Arena
Atlanta, GA 8pm – 2:15am

"The North American road trip, helmed by the band's only original member Axl Rose, marks the band's first since 2006. The remaining members include Tommy Stinson (bass), Bumblefoot (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), DJ Ashba (guitar), Richard Fortus (guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Chris Pitman (keyboards). As Guns N' Roses returns to Atlanta for the first time since 1987, the debauchery still seems to follow the band to this day."

Axl’s performance reminded Atlanta what a real rock star should look and sound like. He was in a great mood throughout his 3 hour set and frequently joked with band members and his audience.  He is quite a jokester.  He mentioned his last visit to Atlanta and how he was arrested on-stage for punching a security guard at the Omni in 1987. He teased about 3 songs in and said “Well, I’ve gotten farther tonight than I did in 1987.”  He told us the story about when he was sitting in the Paddy wagon with cuffs on.  His manager came to him and said “I think we’ve got this worked out, all you need to do it apologize to the Security Guard.”  Axl’s apology consisted of two words that weren’t “I’m sorry” but started with “F – you”.


By the end of the show, he expressed a heartfelt appreciation for the good reception he received from the audience. When the show ended at nearly 2am with Paradise City, many of the people stayed and sang every word to the songs they knew. When it was done Axl twirled around some girls panties and bra that were flung onto the stage and kept running back and forth on the stage. Axl seemed to not want to leave the stage telling everyone to get home safe and come back and see him again and wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.



Set List:
Chinese Democracy
Welcome To The Jungle
It's So Easy
Mr. Brownstone
Sorry
Rocket Queen
Estranged

Love him or hate him you cannot deny his incredible talents as a musician and song writer. Axl Rose is one of the greatest front man's of our time and I am so glad I got to witness him lay it down!
Rock on! Steph Geezy

OMFG(ossip) - Frankie Muniz is engaged!

Amy Graves/WireImage
Former child star of Fox’s “Malcom in the Middle” is engaged to his girlfriend of 4 years, Elycia Marie Turnbow.  Frankie and Marie will wed in six months, and will have many celebrity guests such as the Jonas Brothers and most likely Hanson (not confirmed, but makes my inner 14 year old self squeal).
According to “US Magazine,” the couple allegedly had a “falling out” which involved a 911 call and police back in February that both sides have denied.   Apparently she was just trashing his stuff.  Oh well, we wish the couple the best of luck!
Now, here’s a video inspired by most of Malcolm’s girlfriends throughout the years!

And then my favorite scene of all times from the Malcolm in the Middle series.

OMF(ilming)G - Kim K. in the ATL!!!

Well, Happy Birthday to me! Kim Kardashian is set to start filiming a movie in Atlanta on October 26th (my birthday)!!! She will join the cast of the new Tyler Perry movie, 'The Marriage Counselor'.

Jurnee Smollett plays the marriage counselor and Kadashian will play Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a big city makeover and new confidence as she struggles with her personal issues."

OMF(ilming)G - Neighborhood Watch Filming in GA *Updated 10/10

More celebrities are rolling into Atlanta, Georiga to film these days! The latest additions are Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill, Will Forte & Billy Crudup. They are in town filming 'Neighborhood Watch.' (*Note: still waiting to officially confirm that Adam Sandler is in the movie, his IMDB page does not list it yet.) This sci-fi-comedy is scheduled to hit theaters in 2012. Filming is just starting up in Marietta & Vince Vaughn has already been spotted around town. Ben Stiller was seen in Midtown getting a pair of his shoes repaired. Rumor is that they are set to film next week in Powder Springs in Amberton subdivision. IMDB states the plot of the movie as: "Suburban dads form a neighborhood watch group to get time away from their families, only to discover a conspiracy." Supposedly their area aliens involved!
**Update from an OMFG reader: Ben Stiller was spotted at Whole Foods on West Paces Ferry!
& Vince Vaughn was spotted at Lobster Bar!

Gagalicious in the ATL!

Celeb sighting of epic proportions!

The faboosh Lady Gaga was in Atlanta on Tuesday this week. Why? We are still trying to get to the bottom of that, but here she was!
First she took in a braves game (gaga lovers all know how the mother monster enjoys her some baseball.) Sources say she was trying to lay pretty low; she was seated behind a rail and was trying her best to hide. She was dressed pretty demure that day: hair down, black top and black shades. No flipping off the cameras this time! She was with Taylor Kinney who played 'Uncle Mason' on the Vampire Diaries! The two have been rumored to be dating since he appeared in her video for 'You & I'. Also seen in this video are Michael Trevino (from Vamp D.) & Jenna Ushkowitz (from Glee)!:


A source also reported that Gaga made it a true Atlanta experience: Braves game followed by a rousing night at, your favorite and mine, THE CLERMONT LOUNGE! I don't know what happened there, but one can surely imagine. I'm SO angry at myself, as I was this close to heading to the Lounge after my work shift, but decided to behave instead. WHY DID I BEHAVE?! I'd like to imagine that she got herself a beer can crush from Blondie, chatted with the sweet as pie Ginger, and drank a few of those delicious long beach teas I love so much. Perhaps even some karaoke? Who knows, but keep an eye out ATLiens, it seems as though our fair city is being infiltrated by all sorts of celebrities!

send in your sightings! maybe we'll throw them out there!

OMF(ilming)G - Filming in the ATL


Over the past months, Atlanta has been one of the hot spots for filming. What To Expect When You're Expecting, Vampire Diaries, Walking Dead, and The Three Stooges have been seen filming all around town. And now, we have a new film that will be here in Atlanta until October 7th. It is called the Reluctant Fundamentalist. It stars Keifer Sutherland, Kate Hudson, and Liev Schreiber. It will be filming at 229 Bradbury St tomorrow (Sept. 23) in the Castleberry Hill neighborhood from about 6am to 2pm. You might want to Google that address before just showing up to star-gaze. I see a lot of barbwire fences and such. After the filming wraps in Georgia, the cast will travel to New York & India to finish filming.

Here is a link to the IMDB page for the film. You can see a full description of the plot there. It is based on the novel by the same name. It follows the life of a Princeton student from Pakistan after 9/11.

Here is a picture of Keifer Sutherland from Tuesday night when he dined at Veni Vidi Vici.
Thanks to AJC for the pic!
