Brandy Takes On Tennis Pro At Sony Ericsson Open

Filed under: ZportzSerena WilliamsTennis

Brandy Tennis Open

Grammy winning artist Brandy was a busy lady at this year's Sony Ericsson Tennis Open in Florida this past weekend.

She not only sang the national anthem on Saturday night to kick off a high profile tennis match between top-ranked Rafael Nadal and Kei Nishikori, but played in an exhibition match against World Tennis Association No. 6 Jelena Jankovic on Friday afternoon!

As an avid tennis fan, who is known to trade blows with tennis player pal Serena Williams on the court, Brandy could barely contain her excitement, saying:

"I can’t believe I’m here! I enjoy watching tennis and also playing the sport, so it is exciting hitting with Jelena. She’s a great player."

Apparently, Brandy isn't too bad herself because she held her own against the tennis pro, but admits she wasn't completely confident, saying:

"I was nervous. Thought I played terrible, but Jelena was nice enough not to go smacking winners left and right, making me look bad. She was really friendly."

Her opponent, who happens to be a fan, enjoyed the opportunity as well and told reporters:

"It was a lot of fun. It was so nice to meet her. I’m a big fan of Brandy’s, so I loved hitting with her."

After he exhibition match, Brandy attend the match between Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan (pictured above) in her downtime on Friday.

Sounds like she really took advantage of her time at the Open and now we know how Brandy keeps that fab physique of hers!

James Franco Collaborates With Gus Van Sant For Art Exhibit

James Franco amazing

This is a big year for James Franco and it looks like it just got bigger.

First he made a splash in the Oscar film race, then he hopped on board to host it, but now the actor is making a splash in the art world too!

Gagosian Gallery in El Lay has announced an exhibition, going by the named Unfinished, by Gus Van Sant and James Franco set to run from February 26th until April 9, 2011.

The collaboration between the director and actor features two films, Endless Idaho and My Own Private River, which Franco edited together using unseen footage from Van Sants 1991 film My Own Private Idaho starring Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix.

According to a press release:

For Endless Idaho, Franco edited outtakes, deleted scenes, alternate takes, and behind-the-scenes footage from My Own Private Idaho into a 12-hour film. Endless Idaho provides an unprecedented look into the workaday process of making a movie, from location scouting to repeated takes. Like many of the films of Andy Warhol, a major influence on Van Sant's own auteur style, it is a provocative, often riveting blend of documentary and fiction. Interviews with actual hustlers who played secondary characters in My Own Private Idaho are intercut with shots of River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves improvising and refining their performances under the direction of Van Sant and his crew. The music for Endless Idaho was composed by Luke Paquin and Tim O'Keefe. By contrast, My Own Private River consists largely of shots of Phoenix 's character, Mike, woven into a compelling portrait. Franco describes being mesmerized by Phoenix 's "uninhibited acting" in this unreleased footage, and his edit captures the gifted actor at his most emotionally expressive and physically dynamic. The score is by Michael Stipe, who is an art school drop-out.

Don't worry, Gus made something for the exhibit too! The press release continues:

"The films are accompanied by eight works on paper by Van Sant, which translate his acute directorial sensitivity with regard to human nuance and gesture in film into the immediacy of watercolor. With the same subtle powers of observation that distinguish his filmmaking, he has created portraits of young men who recall characters in My Own Private Idaho — defiant, circumspect, and devil-may-care insouciants. Working from photographic images found on the internet, Van Sant has created vivid impressions of his incidental icons, employing brushwork that alternates broad, limpid strokes with an assiduous attention to detail and a varied palette of both washed out tones and dense, electric hues."

Inneresting.

If we ever have an extra 12 hours laying around, we might have to check this out one of these days.

Fans To Spend The Night With MJ's Stuff!

Filed under: Michael Jackson

Wow!

Over 300,000 people have gone to Tokyo to see the the world's only official Michael Jackson exhibition since its opening on May 1.

Now fans in Japan will be lining up in hopes to spend the night inside the Neverland Collection at the Tokyo Tower.

"The idea may sound a bit odd to Western cultures, but in Japan the tradition of being with the remains and possessions of passed loved ones on the anniversary of their passing is an important ritual," says Hiroyuki Takamura of the Tokyo Tower.

Randomly selected fans will enter the tower at 10:30 pm on the night of June 25 and will be able to stay until 8:00 am the next morning. Producer of the exhibition Matt Taylor says:

"Michael Jackson fans religiously visited daily, and many stay inside the venue for six hours or more. Many Japanese fans become overwhelmed with emotion when in the presence of so many things precious to Michael and iconic to the rest of the world.

"People stand fixed in front of artifacts with tears streaming down their face, still trying to come to grips with losing Michael."

MJ fans are a SERIOUSLY devoted bunch!
