Putin On The Ritz!

Filed under: Silly!Politik

This is the strangest thing! There's so much weird going on here, we not even sure where to begin!

Meet Vladimir Putin, the current Prime Minister of Russia. At a recent fundraiser for children's-cancer research in St. Petersburg, the Prime Minister decided to, um, wow the crowd with his rendition of Blueberry Hill.

The performance is so unusual that within a few short days, its already gone viral! What makes things even more bizarre are the random celebrity cameos strewn throughout the video, while the Prime Minister punches out his jam.

No, really, we can't put into words how truly weird this is. You just have to see it to believe it!

Check out the video of Putin above!

Kim Kardashian is known for her curvacious good looks, but last night her curves were mesmorizing.

The now 30-year-old Kardashian attended Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research at The Angel Ball 2010 in New York City.

And the hottie rocked it in that black straples dress accenting and hugging all the right places.

But especially stunning were the necklace and earrings she wore.

What do U think of Kim's look last night?

Remembering Patrick Swayze

Filed under: Patrick Swayze

It's hard to believe, but a year ago today, the world lost a wonderful man, actor and humanitarian. Patrick Swayze was a lot of things to a lot of people, but to his wife, Lisa Niemi, he was simply the love of her life.

On the anniversary of his passing, Lisa is remembering her husband in her own way - by launching a new awareness program as the new spokeswoman for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Lisa's campaign, called Be a Hero in the Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it, will feature videos and messages of hope from Lisa in hopes of finding a cure and reaching out to those who are suffering.

But Lisa also has plans to commemorate the day in a more personal way. Lisa told sources that she is looking into picking out the "most beautiful tree ever" and planting it in an "extraordinary spot" at the couples ranch just North of Los Angeles. She confesses she spends a lot of time at the ranch these days and admits that she still feels Patrick's presence. She says:

"I do sense his presence, and I like that. Just because he's gone now doesn't mean that love doesn't go on."

Very sweet.

Farrah Fawcett's Friends Commemorate The Anniversary Of Her Death

Farrah Fawcett's closest friends and family members gathered together on the one year anniversary of her death and dedicated a cancer-research foundation in her name on Friday.

Alana Stewart, Ryan O'Neal, Tatum O'Neal, and Redmond O'Neal were among some of the guests in attendance.

The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which Farrah had founded during her struggle with cancer, helps fund alternative cancer research and treatment methods and aims to improve the quality of life of those who are currently struggling with the disease.

Her best friend Alana Stewart said:

"If I can help carry on Farrah's mission for the foundation, it's an honor for me. I feel almost like she's a guardian angel watching over me, and I feel like she's smiling down on us and very happy that she died for a cause. She felt that she could help a lot of people and she could give a lot of people inspiration, courage and hope. That's why she did the documentary and that's why she started the foundation."

Farrah's son Redmond, who got a day pass from the sober living facility where he's undergoing court-ordered drug rehab to visit his mother's grave on the anniversary, was said to be extremely emotional. Father Ryan O'Neal said, "He lost her, and he's fragile."

So sad.

We hope Farrah's family can find peace in helping others who are fighting cancer.
