Goonies 2: Actually Coming Soon!

For anyone who grew up in the 80s, the mere mention of The Goonies unleashes a tidal wave of nostalgia and memorable quotes (“Baby Ruth?”).

Now director Richard Donner is hoping that a sequel to the beloved adventure film will pack a new generation into theaters.

Nearly 30 years after the release of the first film, The Goonies 2 is a go according to Donner. When asked if he would ever direct another comic book film (Donner directed the original Superman film) the director replied, “If you call Goonies a comic book, we’re doing a sequel.”

Okay, so Donner seems a little confused about the definition of “comic book” but it’s exciting news, nonetheless.

The original Goonies has achieved fill-blown cult hit status in the decades since its release and the Steven Spielberg-produced film remains a favorite for pre-teens and their parents alike. 

Now that Donner has confirmed that a sequel will happen, only one question remains – will he be able to reunite the original cast?

Corey Feldman has already expressed misgivings, stating that the script would need to be “perfect” in order for him to resume his role as Mouth.

Other stars such as Josh Brolin and Sean Astin have gone on to enjoy successful acting careers and may be hesitant to return to the land of secret caves and hidden treasures.

Of course, even if the entire cast agrees to the film, I think we can all agree it’ll be a bust unless the kid who played Chunk can still do the Truffle Shuffle.

Twerking to Classical Music: Booty Shaking Meets William Tell Overture

With all due respect to Miley Cyrus Twerking, classical music has been unjustly overlooked during the ascension of this suggestive new dance craze.

Typically associated with hip hop, Twerking is interpreted through a radically different genre below in an experiment designed to legitimize the art.

“Twerking to Classical,” an ongoing Huffington Post series, blends web videos of twerking with the more accepted artistic mores of classical music.

The result? Nothing short of paradigm breaking.

The first installment, “Twerking to Classical,” explores the dynamic between Aram Khachaturian’s Suserov Par (Saber Dance) and a series of female twerkers.

The sequel, from “Men at Twerk,” combines some of the most acclaimed male Twerkers with Gioachino Rossini’s smash hit William Tell Overture.

When it comes to these guys and girls contorting, gyrating and parting like it’s 1699, we can’t stop … and we’re guessing you won’t be able to either.

Sugarland Concert Turns Tragic After Stage Collapses, Kills Four at Indiana State Fair

Four people died and 40 more were injured after a stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair last night, just before the country band Sugarland performed.

High winds are believed to have been the cause of the tragedy.

The collapse was partially captured by a concert-goer. Watch:

The stage collapse was as unexpected as it was lethal.

“The wind just picked up and the stage just caught and the roof just caught and it went up like a sail and then it crashed forward into the people standing in the front,” said a reporter for WANE-TV in Indiana.

“There were people trapped underneath and everyone was running and screaming. They were asking any medics or nurses not to leave.”

Our condolences to the families of those were were lost.

Patrick Schwarzenegger: The New Face (and Abs) of Hudson Jeans!

Patrick Schwarzenegger, 17, is the new face of Hudson Jeans.

It’s not his face that will be distracting motorists, however.

The son of estranged couple Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver shows some serious skin for the denim brand’s Fall 2011 campaign on this billboard:

Patrick Schwarzenegger overlooks Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.

While the high school senior appeared solo in the shot, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall’s daughter, Georgia May Jagger, also models for the brand.

Despite signing with L.A. Models, Patrick’s priority is a traditional education. He and Maria have already been visiting colleges this summer.

He tweeted, “Just visited Harvard. Great college but I’m not adding it to the list. Stanford, USC, Penn, Georgetown are my tops for now.”

Wherever he goes, the older brother of Christopher and younger brother of Christina and Katherine Schwarzenegger should be quite popular.

Oksana Grigorieva Claims Mel Gibson Traumatized Teenage Son; Wants Huge Payday

The criminal case against him has been put to rest by his no contest plea, but Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson are still at war over other issues.

Oksana told a family law judge Friday that she wants half a million bucks for the alleged trauma she claims Mel caused her 14-year-old son.

She claims Alexander (aka Sasha), whose father is Timothy Dalton, was traumatized during the couple’s infamous fight in January 2009.

Grigorieva and Gibson

One of the uglier celebrity breakups of all time.

In the fight, Oksana alleges Mel knocked two of her teeth out. Mel has disputed that claim, saying instead that he merely slapped her because she was hysterical, out of control and endangering their baby daughter, Lucia.

Oksana claims Mel was abusive to Sasha during the argument, calling him names and scaring the kid so much he allegedly hid under the bed.

Grigorieva also claimed on another occasion thhat Mel threw her son onto a table, but Gibson’s camp has flatly denied that allegation as well.

Mediation between the two continues next week.

Brooke Hogan on Relationship with Father: Not Perverted!

Brooke Hogan recently posed naked on behalf of PETA, drawing attention to the portrait of her birthday-suited self inside a cage by showing it off to her father.

And she doesn’t get why people are making it such a big, sick deal!

“Im SO sick of people saying me and my dad are in some perverted relationship,” Brooke Tweeted yesterday. “Go home and do your own thing! Stop picking on me!”

Hulk and Brooke

Two notes, Brooke:

  1. I am home, thanks. I’m not even wearing sleeves right now.
  2. How do you think we found out about this picture? Multiple paparazzi were called to the event and snapped photos. We wonder who alerted those photographers to this unusual happening…

In related news, Hulk Hogan’s wife looks EXACTLY like his daughter.

Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket to Attend MJ Tribute Concert

Michael Jackson’s kids are planning on attending the upcoming MJ Tribute Concert in person. This in spite of objections from two of their uncles.

Prince, Paris and Blanket have all decided that they want to fly to Wales for the event, regardless of what Jermaine and Randy Jackson think.

An Jackson family rep tells TMZ: “Paris, Blanket and Prince have been asked to attend the MJ Tribute in Wales and they have decided to go.”

Jackson Kids

The rep adds that the kids are “extremely excited and they’re hoping they will have the opportunity to contribute in some way by making a speech.”

“Nothing has been set in stone, but they really hope they can.”

Jermaine and Randy are fighting their attendance, as well as the concert itself, which they consider “inappropriate,” given that the event is due to take place in October during the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

We can see that side of it, but at the same time, Michael’s kids – who are said to be so happy these days – should be allowed to honor his memory.

Brooke Burke and David Charvet: Married!

Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke and David Charvet, her longtime partner and fiance, got married last night, according to reports.

The location: On a boat under the stars off the coast of St. Bart’s, with their kids. Hard to imagine a more special moment for the couple, both 39.

“We’re just at that place, where love is deep and meaningful, and we’re feeling very settled,” Brooke said of their relationship earlier this year.

Brooke Burke and David Charvet

Burke began dating Charvet, who starred on Baywatch and the original Melrose Place, in 2005. He proposed to her just one year later, in 2006.

They are parents to daughter Heaven Rain, 4, and son Shaya Braven, 3. Burke has two daughters, Neriah, 11, and Sierra, 9, with ex-husband Garth Fisher.

In an interview with THG earlier this year, Brooke spoke about her “celebrity mom” status and making time for both herself and her relationship with David, despite challenges posed by balancing her career and four kids.

It’s a busy life, but no doubt, it seems like it couldn’t be going better for her. Congratulations to the newlyweds and to the entire family!
