Salif Gueye Dances Way into Ellen’s Heart

Salif Gueye wowed Ellen and millions of viewers today with his dancing…

With Michael Jackson as his idol and inspiration, 22-year-old dancer Salif is amazingly talented.  He currently dances in the streets (for tips) to showcase this talent.  In fact, a YouTube video of him doing so in his hometown of Paris, France recently went viral catching Ellen’s discerning eye.  His fluid moves are simply (actually nothing simple about them) spectacular.

Salif Gueye

Known for helping to launch many talented performers spiraling them into fame, Ellen may be on to something (someone special) here.  Just ask Justin Bieber. He was invited to her show after Ellen saw his first video on YouTube.  He was so new to the scene that Ellen mispronounced his last name.  Shortly after that appearance, Bieber released his first album.  The rest is now (music) history.

I dare say Salif Gueye is an even better dancer (if that is possible) than Michael Jackson.  What do you think?

Carrie Underwood Apologizes

Is anyone else tired of hearing Carrie Underwood apologizing for “not looking the same?”  Her accident (falling off a step breaking her wrist and cutting up her face) sounds horrible, but is it just me or is she putting far too much emphasis on what her face looks like? She was quick to post a picture of an x-ray of her wrist, but her face was not even mentioned until weeks later.

I understand that her looks are an important part of her career, but does she really believe that her fans will think less of her if her face is not perfect?  Refusing to post pictures of her face throughout the whole healing process, she has just returned to the camera.  She looks exactly the same to me.  In my opinion, this whole incident makes her look ridiculously insecure and vain, with nothing to do with any (invisible) scars on her face.

Sad, sad, sad that someone so talented and beautiful feels this way.  Obviously, she has not read my post inspired by One Direction called That’s What Makes you Beautiful.

Chicago the Musical

Chicago the musical

I almost made it to Chicago. The musical that is. I had tickets to Chicago the musical for last night’s performance but had to miss it due to the lousy weather here in Ottawa. I had plans to drive to Barrie from Ottawa to pick up my niece and head to the evening show of Chicago the musical.

Environment Canada changed my plans:

Environment Canada is predicting patchy freezing rain across eastern Ontario on Saturday afternoon.  After that ends, another round of freezing rain will develop this evening and persist for much of the night. Freezing rain will slowly change to snow overnight as colder temperatures move in. Snowfall accumulation of 5 to 10 cm are possible by Sunday”    

Even though I left Ottawa in the morning, with the hope of missing the freezing rain, it started earlier than predicted.  I only got as far as Carleton Place then turned around and came home.  What should have been a 15 minuted drive, turned into close to an hour with too many cars in the ditch.  An ordinarily long drive to Barrie and back would have turned into a nightmare.

The daughter of a family friend plays Velma (front center, with short dark hair).  Reviews have been awesome; I am so disappointed that I did not get there.

The good news is I was able to transfer the Chicago tickets to my niece’s name, so she and a friend were able to enjoy the show.  Lucky for them, the drive from Barrie to Orillia was much quicker (with no freezing rain) than Ottawa to Barrie to Orillia.

That’s Canadian weather for you, unpredictable! I hear it’s just as unpredictable in Chicago too.
