Black Eyed Peas Hit by Blackout When Performing for Star-Studded Crowd

January 04, 2011 03:23:18 GMT


The Black Eyed Peas were left in the dark during a New Year's Eve performance at a private party in the Caribbean after the venue was hit by a blackout. The band was hired to play at a bash hosted by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich at his luxurious estate on the island of St Barts.

But as midnight struck, the group's set was brought to a sudden halt by a power cut - the microphones cut out and the lights went off. A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Everyone screamed, 'Happy New Year,' and then it (the power) went off. Fergie started chanting, 'I Got a Feeling,' and everyone followed. It was a long time in a way, but the power came back."

John Cusack's '2012' Named Worst Sci-Fi Movie By NASA

January 04, 2011 03:19:31 GMT

NASA scientists have named John Cusack's blockbuster "2012 (2009)" as the most "absurd" sci-fi film of all time. Experts at America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Science and Entertainment Exchange have put together a list of the least plausible science fiction movies ever made, and the big budget 2009 picture came top.

The film, which depicted Earth besieged by natural disasters, featured ahead of two more 'end-of-the-world' movies - 2003's "The Core" and 1998's "Armageddon". Donald Yeomans, head of NASA's Near-Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission, says of "2012", "It's absurd. The film-makers took advantage of public worries about the so-called end of the world as apparently predicted by the Mayans of Central America, whose calendar ends on December 21, 2012."

January 04, 2011 03:11:30 GMT


Oprah Winfrey claimed she was nervous before launching her OWN network on January 1, but she can take a sigh of relief now. The network received a respectable number of 1 million viewers, thanks to the holiday night and "Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes" which is about Oprah's old syndicated show.

The biggest draw so far from the network comes from the program which scored 1.2 million viewers when aired at 8 P.M. on January 1. It continued to be the most watched program on OWN the second day and helped OWN to land the third place in the time period among all cable networks in women 25-54.
