Video Shows Jackson’s Head Catching Fire

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on July 17, 2009

datalockerWhy was this video not shown before? Michael Jackson has indeed done so much for the world. He had put millions of smiles on people’s faces. He was just the only Michael Jackson in the world.

The horrible burning of his hair was not a pleasant thing that occurred in his life. It could probably one of the reasons why he got addicted to painkiller drugs.
The harrowing video shows Jackson dancing down stairs for the commercial completely unaware that his head is in flames.

The “King of Pop” was making a Pepsi advert at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on January 27, 1984 when the horrific accident took place, caused by fireworks that exploded too early.

Jackson suffered severe burns to his hair and scalp. “He was never the same after the accident,” Us Weekly said in a report accompanying the release of the video late Wednesday. The 50-year-old superstar died on June 25 from an apparent cardiac arrest.

Still images of the accident had been released but the video had never been shown publicly before. Contacted by AFP, Us Weekly refused to reveal how it obtained the copy.”As a policy we do not comment on how we acquire material,” said Cheryl Crowley, a spokesperson for the magazine.

Jackson, 25 and at the height of his “Thriller” fame when the video was shot, made the commercial with his brothers with thousands of fans in the audience. In the video, the first try appeared to go smoothly, with Jackson dancing down the steps in his signature moves, but the director ordered more takes.

It was the sixth take that went horribly wrong, the video showing Jackson facing the audience beneath a lighting rig when the fireworks exploded around him. He kept dancing and spinning, unaware that his hair and head were burning.
The flames went out when he twisted around as part of his routine. But others saw the accident and security guards rushed to the scene in a split second. His brother Jermaine turned to see Michael Jackson in trouble.

“Pepsi is being made a scapegoat here. It is grossly unfair for the media to blame this incident as the start of all his troubles,” said Coleman who managed the Pepsi-Michael Jackson relationship for 10 years. Jackson “never put a blame on Pepsi. Pepsi made a donation of over a million dollars to start a burns center in his name and they paid for all the medical expenses,” Coleman said.

Megan fox thumbs

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on June 12, 2009

After the photo of Megan was being published online people are asking if this hot lady would still be hot in the eyes of men. Her thumbs are scary, it seems that it is not proportionate as compared to her hands. If you haven’t noticed it before, then you got to watch close to it. It is really different from anyone else’s thumbs.

Would you still hit it? New photos of Megan Fox show the Transformers actress might not be so perfect after all, because she has rather odd thumbs.

The promotional shot above shows that Fox has what some sites are describing as a “toe thumb.” The odd thing about the whole Megan Fox toe thumbs story though is that it hasn’t been noticed before, but then again maybe she hasn’t posed with her thumb that close to her face either.

Experts say that the short fat thumb thing is inherited, and no, she hasn’t had her big toe removed and surgically placed there.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on June 5, 2009

Actress and creator of Goop.com Gwyneth Paltrow, had a television appearance last night covered in well. Her legs are amazingly flawless as they are clearly shown by the camera.

It is far and few between to find people who can honestly say they have flawless skin.  Most people can prove to the truth that there is some sort of skin problem that they deal with at least a portion of the time.  Most commonly, we interact with people who mntion struggles with acne, wrinkles, skin redness and other breakouts or irritations.  There are also dry and sensitive skin issues which can be aggravated by using different products which you don’t realize until it is too late.

More and more products are being offered today to appeal to those with sensitive skin, more so now than ever before.  It would be impossible to try every product out on the shelves to test if they work as they advertise they do.  Before running out and purchasing several different lines of products, it is more practical to do a little research so that you are armed with some knowledge when shopping for the right product.  Knowing what ingredients to look for can eliminate a lot of products from your shopping list and save you some trouble.

Sometimes you might notice you have itchy skin or have a slight reaction after you wash your clothes with a new detergent.  Look for laundry detergents that are dye-free, scent-free and hypoallergenic.

Some face and body soaps are made with natural ingredients that are meant to be more mild on the skin.  Some are made with olive oil and avoid all fragrances and preservatives which make them mild enough for babies or people who have skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and just delicate skin.

Irritants in different beauty products and makeup can aggravate skin, but sometimes this is not cut and dry.  It depends on the individual sometimes as to what is the cause.  Typically foaming cleansers should be avoided, though, because one of the ingredients contained in these types of cleansers is surfactants which will usually further irritate skin dryness.  It is good measure to look for products that have less than 10 ingredients in them.

Kris Allen Wins

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on May 21, 2009

The Clean-cut country boy Kris Allen kicks off Adam Lambert on the stage by winning their competition.

It might be the most surprising upset in the show’s history since the judges – including tough guy Simon Cowell who often favored Lambert’s style of music.

Even though the showy Lambert appeared to be the favorite, it was never foreseen he would win the final vote, which host Ryan Seacrest revealed to be “just under 100 million” – beating last year’s tally of 97.5 million.

The expulsion of Danny Gokey two weeks ago may have given Allen, 23, a boost since both are more conventional and down-to-earth than Lambert, 27.And simple geography may have been on Allen’s side.

Certain personal background has helped Kris put some number of votes for him.Five past Idol winners have been from southern states, and he hails from Conway, Ark., about as deep in the South as you can get.

American Idol Winner 2009

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on May 20, 2009

donaMonths after the auditions and tight competition, the American Idol search down to the final two, Adam and Kris. The search is now open to the final performance show with clips of the two singers, finishing with each saying he’s the next Idol. Ryan tells everybody that it’s the battle between the acoustic rocker and the glam rocker, Kanye and California, the guy next door and guyliner. Randy’s decked out in a gray suit and checked shirt. Why so fancy, Randy? Adam and Kris are both wearing leather jackets. Everyone’s using hand-held microphones, for some reason. It’s strange.

Ryan tells us that Kris won last week’s coin toss and will be performing second. Each guy will sing three songs – a favorite from the season, a choice by show co-creator Simon Fuller, and a song co-written by Kara. Tomorrow will be full of filler performances and celebrity appearances and probably movie promotions, and the show is set to run about seven minutes long, which means it’ll actually run 14 minutes long.

Adam’s dad tells us that he didn’t sleep through the night until he was 18 months old, and he screamed every night. Adam confesses that he was noisy in restaurants. His dad thinks his voice came from his loud volume. Adam says he’s about the same now as he was then.

For his favorite performance, Adam has wisely chosen “Mad World” from the-year-you-were-born week. This time he does a slow descent on the staircase, wearing a long black coat. It’s very Twilight. Or how I imagine Twilight to be. I don’t see the need to critique a performance we’ve already seen, since this is pretty much the same as the original. Not like I’ve done a lot of critiquing of Adam this whole season.

Rihanna Photos Leaked

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on May 9, 2009

rihaThe racy nude pictures allegedly showing the pop star Rihanna have been leaked on the Internet now.

There are six photos being showed up on various showbiz websites showing a woman who bares a striking resemblance to the ‘Umbrella’ singer. Only two of the photos display her partially concealed face. The others depict a naked woman’s backside, but her face is obscured.

A lot of websites are suggesting that the pictures may have been obviously leaked by her former boyfriend, R and B star Chris Brown.

Well, in one of the photos, Brown is pictured wearing a pair of pink ladies underpants on his head.Another photo depicts a woman who bares a strong similarity to Rihanna in a mirror reflection which has a message “I love you Robin. I miss you” scrawled across it. Robin is Rihanna’s actual first name.

The photos continue a controversial few months for the former couple after Brown was alleged to have assaulted the singer, resulting in felony charges that are still pending. We don’t have proof yet as to whether or not it is Rihanna on the picture. It could be that those photos are merely to malign the reputation the singer for whatever reasons. We can’t say that it’s Rihanna until she admits it herself.

Susan Boyle: Never Being Kissed

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 23, 2009

The instant popular singing figure Susa Boyle told viewers of the U.K. TV talent show that she lived alone, had a cat called Pebbles, and had “never been kissed.”
Boyle, who has joined in numerous talent shows, used the line to curry favor with the audience. She told a TV interviewer from U.K. breakfast show GMTV, “That was made as a joke! Never been kissed? I’ve never stopped.”

“Angel or crazy for publicity? You decide,” was how fan site CafeArjun.com responded. “I’m forced to believe it was all a planned show!”
Popwrap.com branded her a “one-trick pony,” while NowPublic.com was more understanding: “Do you think a peck on the cheek counts for being kissed?” the site asked.

But Boyle’s admission has done nothing to dampen the ardor of her millions of new fans. Many believe Boyle, who has been nicknamed the “hairy angel” according to Britain’s Daily Mail, should be declared the winner of the show right now.
“Now that Susan Boyle has been acknowledged as a singing sensation for her beautiful voice, I think it would be a good idea to declare her the winner of Britain’s Got Talent,” wrote C.J. Crane from Mallorca in Spain.
“I am glad Simon Cowell looks like he’s going to give her a recording contract,” said Raymond Rees from Wales.

Michael Douglas Facelift

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 3, 2009

Michael Douglas has been rumored to have undergone surgical operation for a face-lift – after photographs showed scarring around his ears.

The 60-year-old actor was pictured leaving a restaurant with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and tell-tale signs of surgery seemed obvious. The ‘Fatal Attraction’ star had a plaster close to his left ear and a weeping wound by his right one. An individual had noticed at a Barbados restaurant said: “Michael looked like he had cuts around his ears.

“He didn’t have the scars on Monday (28.03.05) but the next day they were clearly visible. He looked very strange.” It is not the first time the Oscar-winning actor has been at the centre of a plastic surgery riddle.

He was alleged to have had his skin around his eyes tightened before he married Catherine – 25 years his junior – in 2000. ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ star Catherine, who has two children with Michael, is also alleged to have had work done to her eyes in 2001, but reportedly hid the scars behind dark sunglasses.

Michael’s spokesperson Allen Burry denied the star had a facelift, but said he had some non-cancerous lesions removed.

Tina, Behind the Bruises of Rihanna

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on March 11, 2009

The intensely provoking text message to Chris came from a woman known to be Tina Davis who is his manager. It was actually a three-page text message on Brown’s mobile phone from Tina that made Rihanna obtain some bruises and ended up being battered. Speculations say that Brown and Davis had the relationship when Brown was only 16. Take note Davis will turn 40 next month, imagine the age gap, so ridiculous, isn’t it? The text message reportedly talked about hooking up later with Chris Brown. Rihanna found out and like what any other girlfriend would do she slap brown and hit him. With Rihanna’s action, Brown got furiously mad at her to the point that he was hurting her physically. We could make a reflection from this scenario that we can never tell how wonderful the relationship is even when you see both partners being so sweet to each other. I think that a true love is measured when you have changed your natural attitude into something that suits with one another’s attitude.
