Emmanuel Kelly

Kleenex time Loons. A few days ago this young fellow decided to audition for X Factor Australia. Emmanuel Kelly, who is 17, started out life in an orphanage in Iraq. He and his brother had been found in a park, in a shoebox, abandoned most probably because  both had been born with severe birth defects, thanks to chemical warfare. Enter Moira Kelly, who originally flew them to Australia for surgery, but ended up adopting the two boys. This is his story and song ….

Psst You may recognize Moira Kelly,  she is the guardian of conjoined twins, Trishna and Krishna, who were successfully separated in 2009 after she found them in a Bangladesh orphanage.  Moira  heads the Children First Foundation and this is her story.

Spanish Singer Murdered

Spanish singer Facundo Cabral (74) has been shot dead after a concert in Guatemala City. Evidentally gunmen approached his car which was being driven by his representative and opened fire on the singer. They also riddled another car which had his bodyguard inside with 25 bullets but no one was injured. Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom reacted to the news by saying “It is sad that a man who sang about love, peace and happiness has lost his life to some bastards in Guatemala.”

Psst I suspect there is more to this story. Sounds like a deliberate hit!

Lucky He Didn’t Sing “I Think I’m Turning Japanese”

Oh my, a pub singer  was arrested after he was accused of being racist. Evidently two Chinese tourists took offence to Simon Ledger singing the 1970’s classic “Kung Fu Fighting” as they walked past the Isle of Wight  pub. The police later arrested Ledger as he was having a meal at a Chinese restaurant (ironic!). The Chinese man had contacted police earlier claiming he was a victim of racial abuse leaving the them no option but to arrest the singer.

How James Blunt Saved The World

I'm Beautiful

Oh for crying out loud James Blunt, if you really wanted to save the world you would never have recorded the “You’re Beautiful” song, damn you! Mr Blunt is currently getting a sledging after he declared that he had saved the world from World War III during an interview yesterday. The singer who was once a cavalry officer said in the interview that during 1999, when he was serving in the Balkans war, he refused to carry out an order to “destroy” 200 Russian troops who had seized a Kosovo airfield. And thus saved us all from a fate worse than Saddam. Too bad he couldn’t save us from You’re Beautiful.

Psst Sheez, I bet they’ll make a movie about it now!

Whitney Envy

O…M…G, if there was ever a reason not to encourage a kid to sing.Watch as psycho child screeches and curses trying to hit the high notes on the Whitney Houston classic. Hmm, she shouldn’t feel so bad Whitney can’t hit them notes either! Dear god she is going to be somebody’s wife one day!

Psst Hmm, are you sure this isn’t a Rosie O’Donnell offspring?

The Sun Just Went Down

Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou (aka Γεώργιος Κυριάκος Παναγιώτου) (aka George Michael) has been thrown in the slammer for a month, thanks to his careless inhaling of an illegal substance which made his ability to drive around a different corner, suck. Wham Bam. Please don’t let the sun go down on him because last Christmas he got off with a warning and gave you his heart. But he’s gotta have faith that no one wants his sex because like Jesus to a child, he’s a father figure. Now he is praying for time and freedom because he knows they are waiting for him.

Psst Boy George maybe able to give him a few tips!
