Ali G and Borat have had their own movies, now comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has been hard at work shooting the film version of his third most famous character creation - Bruno.
The project is now entitled "Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt".
As expected it follows the flamboyant Austrian TV reporter and his interviewing of a range of people from conservative power brokers to celebrities of fashion and entertainment to trick them into making politically incorrect statements, or try to provoke reactions of prejudice if they display signs of homophobia.
Both Mariah Carey and Madonna will be breaking records this week.
When the latest Billboard Hot 100 singles chart is released on Wednesday, both pop divas will have reached new milestones.
M & M are set to break two records set by Elvis Presley, making music history together on the same week!
Thanks to its release as a digital single, Mimi's "Touch My Body" is expected to be the #1 single in America this coming week. It will be her 18th #1, and she will surpass Elvis as the artist with the most #1 hits. Only The Beatles will have more #1's with 20.
Meanwhile, Madonna's "4 Minutes" will jump into the Top 10 this week and she will beat Elvis as the artist with the most Top 10 hits in music history. It will be her 37th !!!

So I have noticed when I went online tonight that there is one more Gwen Stefani Collectible fashion doll available. I thought their were only 4 new Gwen Stefani Dolls. I've only see four of them in store and on the back of the boxes of the dolls there are only four pictured.
Well I was wrong. There is fact another Gwen doll out there, it is called "Red Carpet Gwen." I cant believe I never knew about this until today, since the dolls have been available since the fall of 2007. I want this truly rare special edition doll.
Here it is pictured.
So I've been searching far and wide, long and hard for the new series of Gwen Stefani Collectible Dolls. I refused to buy them for $30 each at Claires...so I decided I would no longer worry about them, and when I found them, I would buy them, but not go searching anymore. Well I have indeed found them!!!
I purchased the "The Sweet Escape Tour Edition" that was only available on the tour back in April 2007. Since than I have had no luck in finding the rest. On the back of the boxes, it states there are 5 other collectible dolls. Out of all the places I went this past weekend, I went into Zellers.
When I went to the toy section on saturday I found the five dolls. They were all there and their were tons and tons. I decided to purchase two of them, I wasnt going to purchase the Harajuku Girl doll because I dont care about them, I only wanted the Gwen dolls.
I purchased the "Wonderful Life Gwen" and the "Wind It Up Gwen." I plan on getting the other two Gwen's next week. The price tag was $24 each. When I arrived at the checkout I was pleasantly surprised to see that the actual price was $19 and it came to a total of $22 with tax!!!
Today I went onto EBay.ca and I have found them all on the site ranging from $15 - $35 American. Also I have found out that there is another doll in the series that is not even on the back of the box. The "Red Carpet Gwen" is available online. That one is one of my most faves, I'm gonna have to buy that one online, or maybe wait til my birthday in July to see if I get it as a present!
Here are all the dolls in the series...the top two are the ones that I purchased yesterday.

Mariah Carey is on track to collect her 18th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart next week.
"Touch My Body," the first single from her upcoming album, "E=MC2", dipped one place to No. 15 on the latest survey. But the fresh availability of a digital download should send the song hurtling to the top next week.
That will push Carey to second place among artists with the most No. 1s in the rock era. The record is held by the Beatles with 20; Carey is currently tied with Elvis Presley.

Broadcast Data Services (BDS), the company that monitors airplay in North America has confirmed that '4 Minutes,' the first single from Madonna's forthcoming album Hard Candy, has debuted at #1 on the Canadian CHR Audience chart.
This marks the first time any single has entered at the top of either CHR chart in BDS history. '4 Minutes' was co-written by Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Timberlake also co-produced the track with Timbaland and performs vocals with Madonna.
The song also entered the CHR spins chart at #5, only the second song ever to debut in the Top 10 on that chart. '4 Minutes' also entered the All Format Audience chart at #2, the highest debut in the chart's history.
'4 Minutes' is currently the #1 selling single on iTunes while Hard Candy has the distinction of being the current best selling album on iTunes based strictly on pre-orders.

4 MINUTES IN THE UK:
Madonna's 4 Minutes entered the official UK Single Chart at #7 yesterday - on downloads alone. This is great news and secures a 61th Top Ten hit in the UK for Madonna!

A guest appearance by Britney Spears on Monday gave the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" its highest rating ever.
"Mother" spiked to a series high 4.5 preliminary rating among adults 18-49, even as the rest of the CBS comedy lineup fell from last week's record-setting return to original episodes.
Critics were relatively impressed. "Britney the Trainwreck showed how she can still be Britney the Performer," wrote the Associated Press. "Spears proved she can act every bit as well as she can sing," wrote the New York Daily News. "Brit looked slim, (OK she was behind a desk), trim and gorgeous," wrote the New York Post.
The second week of strong "Mother" ratings (10.6 million, 4.5/12) assures the one-time bubble comedy will be renewed for the fall. "Mother" was the fourth-highest-rated show of the evening, and CBS won the night (averaging 12.5 million, 4.4/11).
