Fifty two years after her death, Patsy Cline is coming back to entertain as a hologram. Not many details right now, but we do know that the Cline hologram will be unveiled next year as part of an interactive concert that will feature both “live” performance and commentary.

This is such a cool idea. Treating military servicemen to a weekend full of concerts and beach fun! Boots on the Beach, a fun-filled all-star country music celebration packed with concerts and excursions, offered a once-in-a-lifetime experience for military couples to rejuvenate and reconnect after deployment. “I would go anywhere. I would go to the sandiest, hottest places that our military goes to be able to hang out with them because of all they do for us,” said Jerrod Niemann. “But to be able to come to Jamaica and enjoy paradise with our troops, its like getting the best of both worlds.”

Hollywood Headlines for June 29th!

Looks like things are-a-stirrin’ on stage. Two of America’s favorite things are coming to a stage maybe not near you, but you can travel to see them. Clueless is officially going to be made into a musical. AND the Harry Potter universe is expanding with a new play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We don’t know a ton about either of these two projects, but I can tell you a few things. 1) The Harry Potter play is NOT a prequel. 2) The Clueless musical will be directed by the same person who directed Rock of Ages and Katy Perry has expressed interest. The director threw out the name Iggy Azalea as well…..um…..

Now if I told you that someone pranked Paris Hilton, you’re immediate reaction is probably something like, “HA! Good!”. But for real, I feel bad for her. There’s an Egyptian TV show that recently staged a fake plane crash with Paris “on board” and she is probaly scarred for life. I got to watch the video of the segment, but it has since been removed. I’ll try to get my hands on it and post it here. I can tell you that this prank crossed the line into torture. Paris is self-admittedly terrified of dying via plane crash and I’m sure this didn’t help.

The BET Awards aired last night. A few tidbits of knowledge to share at the water cooler include Janet Jackson making an appearance to receive the Ultimate Icon Award, Nicki Minaj is the big winner and Diddy fell on stage.

Hollywood Headlines for June 22nd!

Awkward.

That is the face of Jake Lloyd. You may recognize him as a young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 1. He was arrested over the weekend on charges of failing to stop for police and reckless driving. He just wanted the thrill of podracing, I suppose…

In my opinion, it’s like when Clark Griswald goes off on his boss in Christmas Vacation only not funny. We have yet another Twitter rant from Charlie Sheen. It seems to be unprovoked and random too. Shocked? You can check out all his crazy Tweets here, as they have since been deleted from his account. Most of the heat was direct at ex Denise Richards. Her response was civil and perfect.

Another weekend passes by, and its another weekend that I’m disappointed I couldn’t make it out to the theater! Pixar’s new animated film Inside Out broke a record for biggest opening weekend for an original film with $91 million. So, this is different from the record that Jurassic World currently holds because Inside Out is not part of a franchise or based on a book or other form of media. The previous holder of this title was Avatar with $77 million.

This year’s CMA Music Festival kicks off Thursday (June 11) in Nashville, and that afternoon some lucky fans will get the chance to have a beer on Blake Shelton‘s tab.

The “Sangria” singer won’t be attending the country extravaganza this time around, but he didn’t want the roughly 80,000 fans who will to feel let down — or thirsty — so he’s partnering with Bud Light for “Beers on Blake.”

“I’m sorry I’m not able to make it to the festival this year,” Shelton says, “But I will be with you in spirits.”

More than a dozen of downtown Nashville’s honky tonks will give away a limited supply of koozies, shirts and free beer, all on Shelton. The promotion kicks off at 4PM Thursday and the beer will flow until its gone, but don’t expect that to last too long. With temperatures regularly reaching into the 90s during CMA week, there will be plenty of country fans out there looking for a drink.

Those who do get a cold one courtesy of Shelton are just asked to snap a photo for Instagram or Twitter, use the hashtag #YourVoiceofChoice and tag @blakeshelton. The singer, of course, is one of four celebrity judges on NBC’s The Voice.
