Leona Lewis Splits From Her High School Sweetheart

Leona Lewis, the woman responsible for song above that single-handedly got me through my last break-up (I am so lame), has broken up with her boyfriend of ten years, Lou Al-Chamaa.

From EarthNews:

The ‘Bleeding Love’ singer and Lou – who met when they were just 10 – decided to call it quits after Leona’s busy work schedule stopped them from being able to spend any quality time together.

A friend told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Things have been under pressure for ages between them and they have finally realised that things are not going to be able to progress.

“Leona’s schedule means she’s in the States a lot when Lou’s in London and then when he goes out she’s over here. Then there’s the fact she’s been totally immersed in preparing for her tour. They have barely spend any time together whatsoever.”

The final straw is believed to have come on Wednesday (16.06.10) when Lou didn’t turn up to see Leona perform at London’s O2 Arena, despite living just down the road in Hackney.

Honestly, thank God for break ups. It sounds like this dude was both unsupportive and holding her back. When a relationship ends, it’s often devastating, but by the time you’ve cried it out, the feeling of freedom and relief is invaluable. I bet that if anything, we’re about to see this woman blow up bigger than ever before.

Marry/Dump/Date: Lily Allen, Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis

The Brit Awards were last night in London and you may notice a common theme between its female attendees: They’re all dressed crazy. I thought that this would be a perfect time to play a game of Marry/Dump/Date (you may know it as F**k/Marry/Kill, but we don’t need to be that graphic.) It’s easy! Just take a look at Lily Allen, Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis in their crazy getups from last night and figure out in your head which one you’d marry, which one you’d dump and which one you’d like to date. Ladies can play this game just as well as men, so I thought I’d let you know that I’d totally marry Lily, date Gaga and then sadly, dump Leona. I’m telling ya, this game can be hard.

Leona Lewis, “I See You” Video (Avatar Theme)

I know I’m supposed to be really really excited about this movie, but I’m not. Sorry. The animation does look kind of cool, but if I wanted to see weird alien-looking people have sex I’d just track down the Kim Kardashian sex tape. The $230M James Cameron blockbuster hasn’t even been released in North America, but it’s leading in Golden Globes nods. Talk about hype!

I’m also unexcited about Leona Lewis’s music video for the theme song, “I See You.” I am unexcited about the cheap-ass special effects they used in her video after spending over $200 million animating this film. And I am least excited about the dress she is wearing, which I hope did not cost anyone more than $5.

Anyway. I know bunches of you want to see it, so here it is. Enjoy!
