In The Mix - 30th October 2010

Twilight Party

Tomorrow is Halloween and there will be many parties going on I'm sure, including one arranged by Robert Pattinson's!

He is hosting a Halloween party for the Breaking Dawn cast which is the 3rd film in the saga.

It has also been said he will be spending a lot of money on it, the exact amount is 30,000, wow that is going to be one good party! Some of that money is going towards spooky outfits for the cast and crew to wear.

A source has said "Rob's organising a huge soiree to celebrate Halloween, he thinks it is going to be hilarious for them all to dress up in scary costumes.

The crew are huge fans of Rob and are really looking forward to it. Rob knows how much they all love Halloween so has really gone to town.

He's asked a couple of costume designers he knows to make special ghoul costumes for his guests.

Rob himself will be dressing up as the famous blood sucker Dracula- a vampire he is believed to be related to.

He has something special planned for one of his co-stars though, his girlfriend Kristen Stewart who plays Bella, in Twilight. He is planning on exchanging Halloween-inspired gifts with her.

The source explained: "Rob brought a special vintage gold ring with a red heart for Kristen. He's planning to give it to her just before the bash starts."

Kristen is one lucky girl!

The source also added that "Rob has also drafted in caterers to cook massive cauldrons full of soup and ale.The cast start shooting again on Monday so are free to spend the weekend having fun and getting into the spirit of things.

There's no way the cast of 'Twilight' would miss Halloween. It's a massive event for them and something they're always up for having a laugh with.

And I'm sure it will be a laugh!

Chris Brown

Chris Brown as always been a popular singer however last year when he was convicted of assaulting then girlfriend and pop sensation Rihanna he may have lost some fans.

The court case was highly-publicised and since then he has been attempting to make a career comeback but now he is also offering his services to a charity which aims to stop violence against women.

The Anti-domestic violence charity is called 'Man Up' and the founders name is Jimmie Briggs. Chris approached him at the GQ gentlemen's Ball in New York this week and asked if he would be able to help.

Talking about Chris Jimmie has said "I found Chris to be very humble, sincere, honest and clear about expressing an interest in working with Man Up or an organisation like ours. Chris is a young man, and he made a mistake. Some people may feel or not feel he hasn't paid his dues, but he's on a journey. We have to be supportive. My parting words to him were 'Keep your head up.'14/11/2010 19:51:56

Mariah Carey pregnant?

Earlier this year there were speculations that Mariah Carey was pregnant has she had a much curvier figure. But according to a source, the weight gain was due to fertility treatment.

The source has said "The fertility drugs were the reason for her weight gain earlier this year. She stopped drinking back in March or April this year."

However it seems like the treatment worked as the source has also said "She's having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didn't want to say anything is because she is 40 and she's superstitious. But she's going to appear on Oprah and The View, so she's planning on making the announcement soon."

Mariah Carey's team has said the singer is pregnant with a baby boy and is expecting to give birth in April next year. Mariah on the other hand is adamant she will not confirm the news until the time is right. Mariah and husband Nick Cannon are apparently still deciding on whether to raise their son in New York or Los Angeles.

The Saturdays launch poppy appeal

The 2010 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal was launched this week at the Army Garrison in Colchester. Girl Band The Saturdays were there to promote the event by throwing armfuls of petals into the air and jumping for photographers. They also did a private concert for the family and friends of the British Armed Forces in Afghanistan.

Two members, Frankie and Rochelle are both Essex born, "It's great to be back in Essex performing for the families living at Colchester Garrison. I really admire and respect our Armed Forces and their families, I think what they do is incredible." and Rochelle added "It's humbling to be asked to help launch this year's Poppy Appeal. We will do anything we can do to support the Poppy Appeal and our brave Armed Forces and their families." All proceeds of the annual fundraiser goes towards providing care for members of the armed forces. If you want to find more information about the charity log onto or

And you can also download a single called two minutes silence and stars such as The Prime Minister, Thom Yorke, Andy Murray, David Tennant and Mark Ronson are just some of the celebs featuring in the video. All of the proceeds from the single will go towards furthering support to serving and ex-Service personnel and their families.

The single is released on 7 November but you can show your support and order your copy now at

The Simpsons

If you like Harry Potter, Twilight and the Simpsons then you are in for a treat in November! An extra special episode, of The Simpsons, will air on the 7th of November with famous Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliff voicing a heartthrob Vampire (who looks a bit like Edward Cullen) who woo's Lisa and who wants to eat Homer! A thirty second preview of this Simpson's episode, called 'Treehouse Of Horror' is available to watch on the internet.

Well I think that is going to be very popular and is a very good idea to bring together two of the biggest fantasy film franchises.

Travie McCoy gets arrested

Travie McCoy was in Berlin this week performing and the city's Magnet Club, however he was doing a bit more than just performing, in face he got himself into a bit of trouble.

The Gym Class Heroes star was witnessed by some German officer's graffiting a name tag on the remains of the Berlin Wall! They took him into custody, but was later released on a 1,500 euro bail.

Travie had planned his actions the night before by putting a picture of himself next to the historic structure on twitter and tweeded "The Berlin wall. I'm def getting up on this before we leave tonight!!!"

The then followed that tweet later by posting a photo of his illegal actions on his Twitter page and wrote "Told you!!! Had to do it, blame it on the devil, everyone else does!"

It took him about an hour to spray a 'tag', which is a symbol of his name, in bubbled lettering. The Berlin wall was erected in 1961 dividing the city, cutting off the Western side from the Soviet controlled Eastern side.

It is listed as a historical monument, and posting graffiti on it could carry a jail term of up to three years, although the charge is decided by a judge, and in most cases only a fine is given.

In the 70s and 80s people on the western side were allowed to graffiti the wall in protest at its existence, but laws on graffiti in the city have been revised since it was torn down in 1989.

Well Travie was lucky to have someone pay his bail for him otherwise we may not have heard from him for 3 years!


If you were around in the 90's then you may remember a 4 piece, Irish girl band called B*wiched. They had hits songs such as 'C'est Le Vie' and 'Blame it on the Weatherman' Now to be honest I'm not really sure what happened to them but it is obvious they are not around anymore, well until now.

Two of the twins from B*witched-Keavy and Edele Lynch-have made a new track called Body Rock, which is very different to anything we have seen or heard them do before.

They now call themselves Barbarella and the music video shows they seem to have taken some fashion Tips from Lady Gaga, as they wear short wigs, black lipstick and leotards with frilly collars. If you have the chance get that out and see if you like it or if you think they should go back to their pop music they got famous for.
