Seth MacFarlane to Host 2013 Oscars

Seth MacFarlane proved he can do more than just direct movies/TV shows and do funny voices when he took up hosting duties for SNL a coupleseth macfarlane snl weeks ago.

He must have really impressed someone because he has now been asked to host the Academy Awards.

“It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,” he said in a recent statement. “My thoughts upon hearing the news were, one,

I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors; and two, I hope they don’t find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen Roast.”

The funny-man did a bang up job on SNL, but can he be a bit more serious for the Academy Awards?

He may not be the first choice for movie fans, but he’ll probably do an awesome job.

We’ll just have to wait until February 24th to see for sure.  

Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman Welcome Their First Child

Drew Barrymore has been pretty low key lately.  We haven’t really heard much about her pregnancy or seen too many pics of the actress out and drew barrymore will kopelmanabout and showing off her growing belly.

She’s been so low key, in fact, that it’s just being announced that she finally had her baby--last week.

Barrymore and her husband, Will Kopelman, welcomed the little bundle of joy last Wednesday.

What did she have?

It’s a girl!

The couple named her new daughter Olive Barrymore Kopelman.

Perhaps the name sounds a bit familiar.  It should since Barrymore was the voice for the title character in 1999’s Christmas special, Olive, the Other Reindeer.


Country Singer Jason Aldean Apologizes on Facebook For Behavior

 Videos and pictures of country singer Jason Aldean getting a little touchy feely with an American Idol alum have recently surfaced.

This wouldn’t be so bad, except for the fact that the singer is married!

Unlike some celebs who go into hiding when a scandal hits and let their reps do all the talking, Aldean has decided to admit his indiscretion and apologize directly to fans via his Facebook page:

“Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites.

The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support.”
