Maya Angelou Was HOSPITALIZED!

Filed under: Oprah WinfreyBookzHealthScary!

maya angelou hospitalized unknown reasons no travel scary

We're saddened to hear that Oprah's favorite poet/author, Maya Angelou, had been hospitalized!

It was brief, luckily, and she IS back at home in North Carolina recovering — we just have no idea why she was put into the hospital in the first place! There are no details!

The only other thing we're hearing is that her medical team has ordered her to NOT travel anywhere for the next three to four weeks!

Such a bummer!

At 85, we hope she's okay! Feel better soon, Maya!

In WTF News: Pete Doherty To Star In Period Drama!

pete-doherty-to-star-in-la-confession-d-un-enfant-du-siecle

Seriously?! And who exactly thinks that he's going to be coherent enough to make it through filming?

Libertines frontman Pete Doherty has reportedly signed on to play womanizing French poet Alfred de Musset in an adaptation of his novel, La Confession d'un Enfant du Siècle, alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg as the female lead!

Reports reveal that production began on Monday in Germany, which will take the place of France for the purposes of the film.

Wow! We had no idea that he had ANY interest in acting, let alone would be able to snag such a big role!

We'll be VERY interested to see how this turns out! Here's hoping he surprises us all and pulls out a good performance!

Thoughts??

David Beckham Becomes Achilles!

Filed under: AnglophiliaZportzDavid Beckham

Britain's national poet, Carol Ann Duffy has found a new muse!

And surprisingly enough, it's footballer David Beckham!

Duffy was inspired by Beckham's recent injury and has crafted together a poem that "imagines Beckham as the ancient Greek hero Achilles."

Ha!

Duffy's poem includes Beckham disguised "in girls' sarongs; days of sweetmeats, spices, silver songs" and on the playing field, "his charmed foot on the ball."

Pretty creative, if U ask us!
