Heavy D dead , Adele will sing again, and a Hannibal Lecter TV show?


Rapper Heavy D Dead at 44

After he was discovered having trouble breathing, a 911 call was made from the rapper’s Beverly Hills home late in the morning of November 8th.  

When help arrived, he was awake and able to speak, but he was quickly rushed to a hospital in L.A. Just an hour later he was pronounced dead. It’s still too early to tell just what caused the rapper’s death, although foul play has been ruled out.

Heavy D rose to fame in the 90s with hit likeNuttin’ But Love’ andNow That We Found Love.’  He also appeared in various TV shows and movies, such as the recently released Tower Heist. The past week has been pretty big for surprising deaths, with both Andy Rooney and Joe Frazier passing away.

May you all rest in peace.

Adele will sing again!

Adele’s fans have been pretty worried about her lately.  The rumor mill was working overtime, churning out false gossip about the singer having throat cancer.Adele photo: popdust.com

Then, once it looked like all may be well and good, she cancelled tour dates and it was announced that she’d soon have surgery to help with the constant laryngitis that’s been plaguing her.

The Grammy winner has gone under the knife, undergoing vocal cord microsurgery that will stop the nagging throat hemorrhages.  

Now that the surgery’s done a new worry has come to light.  Will she ever be able to sing again? Lucky for her and her fans, the answer is yes!

Doctors have confirmed that the 23-year-old singer should fully recover and will be able to sing again.


Hannibal Lecter TV Show?!

Sources have recently confirmed that NBC has made a deal with Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies and Heroes) to create a television series about, get this, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.Hannibal Lecter photo: jenniferfischetto.com

Crazy, right!     

According to the deal, if NBC likes what they see, the series will immediately be ordered without the need for a pilot.

Considering how sick and twisted the Dr. is, it should be very interesting seeing how they can translate his story to primetime TV.

Right now the whole thing is still in the early planning stages, so there isn’t a whole lot known about what will go on. Will they be able to find someone who an effectively pull off playing the creepy cannibal?  Will they be able to create a show that gives fans of the franchise the same yuck factor they’re used to while also keeping it clean enough for NBC?

We’ll just have to wait and see.
