How would Finn Hudson look in a grizzly beard? Because it’s Stanley Cup playoff season in the National Hockey League, the time when superstitious players refuse to shave as long as their team’s alive, and Glee‘s Cory Monteith is a passionate Vancouver Canucks fan. His team advanced to the second round on Tuesday night with a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory in a Game 7 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Wearing a green Canucks t-shirt, the Canadian native stopped by NHL.com to relive his team’s glorious cliffhanger, which he witnessed on TV in a midtown New York pub. “I literally stood up … and started screaming,” crowed Monteith. “And everybody was like, ‘What is this guy doing?’” READ FULL STORY
Tag: Carrie Underwood (11-20 of 20)
Carrie Underwood will make her silver screen debut in April as a church youth leader in Soul Surfer. (See this official shot of the singer to the right for a sneak peek at the movie.) The film stars AnnaSophia Robb as real-life surf star Bethany Hamilton, who lost her left arm in a shark attack in 2003, but returned to competitive surfing months later.
Underwood made her TV debut last season on How I Met Your Mother (as a sales rep and object of Ted’s affection), and she was totally passable. Inspirational youth leader is, like, one notch different than effervescent country star, so I actually have pretty high hopes for her here.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Is Soul Surfer a wise move for the former Idol contestant?
Fresh off her Entertainer of the Year win at Sunday’s ACM Awards, Carrie Underwood made a surprise visit yesterday to The Ellen DeGeneres show, where the American Idol alum gave away tickets to the show’s charity special, Idol Gives Back, and talked about her upcoming nuptials to Canadian hockey player, Mike Fisher.
What we learn from her visit is: Carrie isn’t a bridezilla, she wants a small wedding, and she thinks Ellen is doing a great job on Idol. And if you want to experience some jewelry envy, check out her massive yellow diamond engagement ring. Carrie simply says, “He did goood.” Good, indeed! Watch Carrie’s couch time with Ellen in the clip after the jump: READ FULL STORY
that The Office’s John Krasinski and Young Victoria‘s Emily Blunt will walk down the aisle “in about a month.” The source doesn’t know a lot of the major details — like the location — but it seems that when it comes to celebrity wedding news, every single detail is worthy of a headline. E! Online is reporting
Clearly, however, people are interested in the nitty-gritties. How else can you explain how much I know about Carrie Underwood’s upcoming nuptials? Ready for this? Okay: Underwood, who became engaged to hockey player Mike Fisher last December, will have cupcakes instead of wedding cake at the reception and her dog will serve as the ring bearer, but her dress is still in the beginning stages of design. Phew! Last year, I didn’t even know this much about one of my oldest friend’s weddings, and I was a bridesmaid.
I get sucked into Platinum Weddings and My Fair Wedding marathons more often than I care to admit. I can see why people are interested in the details, especially if they’re a fan or a bride-to-be. But we’re not talking about weddings of Diana and Charles proportions; a new heir to the throne won’t be coming out of any of these unions, no matter how much we love Jim Halpert. Is there really a reason why we can’t wait until after the wedding to find out that Carrie’s on Team Cupcake?
What do you think PopWatchers? Do you care about every single detail of a celeb wedding leading up to the big day, or is it information overload? Is there any celebrity wedding you were truly excited for?
This is a lot of adorableness to cram into one clip, but there you go: Carrie Underwood’s upcoming guest spot on How I Met Your Mother includes her cuddling a mini pig.
Beyond the adorable, this clip also gave me hope that Underwood’s acting is actually fine. Yay! That’ll do, PopWatchers. That’ll do.
The Super Bowl is the single most-watched event of the pop culture year. Every year, hundreds of millions (maybe billions?) of people sit down to watch the parade of celebrities, musicians, cheerleaders, and high-concept commercials that cost more than the financial crisis. This year, EW.com will be right there alongside you, live-blogging hours and hours of important entertainment events. The live blog kicks off at 6 PM ET tomorrow.
Summer blockbusters will be previewed. Beloved franchises will be rebooted. The Who, Carrie Underwood, and Queen Latifah will perform. There will be controversy, but there will also be advertising moments our entire civilization will remember for generations. And, as a special bonus, we hear that Oreo pitchmen Eli and Peyton Manning will be in attendance. Won’t that be exciting!?
Carrie Underwood joins the ranks of Rachel Bilson and Stacy Keibler with a guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother later this year, according to People. She’s set to play “an enigmatic pharmaceutical sales rep and love interest for Ted.”
I’m neutral on Carrie Underwood, and HIMYM has been pretty good at figuring out what to do with its guest stars, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. But man, this show does not need a storyline that pulls Ted away from the rest of the group. The best episodes of HIMYM always involve everyone, though Marshall or Barney sidestories can support themselves once in a while. Ted-only plots, on the other hand – his teaching, Stella, the repeat blind date, etc. — don’t work as well, plus they tend to make our ostensible hero into a total herb.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Is the American Idol a natural fit for MacLaren’s?
