Listen To This: Madama Butterfly!

Filed under: AnglophiliaListen To This

Just like Ariana Grande is giving the children new school Mariah, so is Laura Wright serving younger generations some Sarah Brightman, because the kids these days probably aren't familiar with either Miss Carey or Andrew Lloyd Weber's ex.

Laura Wright, like Brightman, is an opera singer. Wright, like Brightman, hails from the U.K. And Wright, like Brightman, is making opera cool and commercial - in a very modern way.

Wright is melding opera with dance music and it is done super well!

Sooooooo good!!!!!!

Check out her stunning Barber's Agnus Dei/The Sound Of Strength above!

Kate Middleton Totally Switches Up Her Look For The Sydney Opera House! Hello, Edgy & Bright!!

Kate Middleton rocks a totally refreshing bright yellow frock at the Sydney Opera House in Australia!

We never thought we’d see the day!!

While everyone obviously loves Kate Middleton’s current sense of style, it is nice to see her switch up her look every once in a while.

And she switched things up a LOT at the Sydney Opera House with Prince William on Tuesday during their tour of Australia!

The darling duchess ditched her usual modest pleats and classic frocks in favor of a brilliant yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress that was all sorts of modern. It was also the perfect color of choice, since yellow is one of Australia’s national colors!!

Nude LK Bennett heels and a few select pieces of jewelry completed her ensem.

Think Her Majesty the Queen approved??

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

This would stink to have to go through this! Alas, this is a tale as old as time!

A Nashville Opera Company singer, Amy Herbst, is suing Uncle Sam claiming that an operation performed during childbirth that went awry has caused her excessive farting, incontinence, and put her career in jeopardy!

She can't perform without farting! She doesn't have to worry about breaking glass, she has to worry about breaking wind!

Allegedly, a nurse-midwife at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital at Fort Campbell, Kentucky performed an episiotomy to enlarge the birth opening without Amy's permission, and ended up causing an injury!

Amy's lawyer dished on how her excessive gas and incontinence has affected her work:

French Montana Is NOT A Fan Of Super Bowl's National Anthem Opera Singer! "F*ck That Sh*t!"

Filed under: Music MinuteZportzFootballNFLSuper Bowl

french montana not happy with super bowl national anthem singer renee fleming

Wow! Why don't you tell us how you really feel?

Earlier this week, the NFL made the interesting decision to pick opera singer Renée Fleming to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLVIII!

While some were intrigued by the change of direction, others weren't so keen on the choice to pick a name that isn't in the mainstream, especially rapper French Montana!

The musician was asked his opinion on the NFL going with an opera singer, and his answer was pretty straight forward:

Kim Kardashian's Kurves Make A Killer Appearance During Kanye West Date Night!

Filed under: Kanye WestKim KardashianBody

kim kardashian curves kanye west date night

That is one bangin' post-baby body!

Kim Kardashian might have been covering up her fit figure - well, other than her knockers - while trying to lose the weight she gained while pregnant with North West

…but gurlfriend shouldn't hide a thing anymore!

Kim was looking beyond when she stepped out for a date night with Kanye West at the LA Opera. Srsly, we don't know if we're more mesmerized by her bouncing boobs or that AH-Mazing hourglass figure!

Or maybe we're most amazed by how chill Yeezy appeared while the paparazzi snapped pics. He even kept his honey close with a little PDA for all to see!

Perhaps her crazy curves had him so googly-eyed he didn't even realize anyone else was there! LOLz!

They say it ain't over until the fat lady sings!

But when the protesters start screaming, the opera has to stop for awhile too!

That's what happened at Lincoln Center in New York on Monday night during a performance of the Russian opera, Eugene Onegin, when around a dozen gay rights activists burst into the auditorium, mid-performance!

And sitting in the audience for opening night were Brooke Shields, Heather Graham and Diane Kruger!

The protesters singled out Russian performer Anna Netrebko and conductor Valery Gergiev, shouting:

First A Bad Teacher Sitcom, Now A Bad Teacher 2 Too?

Filed under: Film FlickersCameron Diaz

bad teacher

All mad bad here!

Cameron Diaz is rumored to return for the sequel to Bad Teacher, which means that soon we'll have two Bad Teacher movies AND a Bad Teacher sitcom!

What's next? A 3-act Bad Teacher opera? Because we'd love to see Cameron do a 12-minute aria about sleeping with a State Professor in order to steal exams for her students.

Apparently, people love watching teachers who drink, smoke, and curse at their students — you know, typical requirements to get tenure a sequel. The first flick made over 200 million dollars worldwide for Columbia Pictures (owned by Sony Pictures), which was a nice little surprise for Cameron.

Although she hasn't been confirmed yet, it's hard to imagine anyone else playing the ne'er-do-well instructor. Already on board are Jake Kasdan, who is slated to direct, and Justin Malen, who will pen the sequel.

Looks like we'll have to wait a couple of weeks before they decide to make a Broadway musical based on this growing film and TV franchise.
