From Lily’s MySpace blog:
As you might already know the BBC have been silly enough to to fund my very own TV show . It will be on in the new year on BBC3 and I am very excited about it . There will be good celebrity guests , not rubbish ones and brilliant bands playing brilliant music . And of course a pregnant me trying to present it all .
One of the ideas of the show is to publicise bands that have not been on T.V before , so if there are any great bands or acts you know of that you think I should have on then please let me know .
More importantly I want you all to be involved in some way ( if you’re interested ) . A big part of the show will be based around you guys, so please go and sign up on the show website for chances to get involved , like being in the audience , or sending stuff in for me to talk about , or sending in questions for my guests . I should warn you it looks a bit crap at the moment , but we’ll be updating it more and more everyday , and it’s going to be amazing soon . Go have a look anyway at bbc.co.uk/lilyallen
Well thats it for 2007 , happy christmas you lot , see you soon
I want more teenage pregnancies.

It’s a slow news day, you guys.
Where are the Miley Cyrus naked photos when you really need them? (I know, I know, she’s underage … but I’ll conveniently forget as soon as those photos surface.)
Anyway, Wyclef Jean has a new album out, and I’ve been jamming to it for the better part of the week. There’s this song on it called “Sweetest Girl,” about some chick who was really smart and full of potential in high school and now is a hooker. It’s a pretty dope song, and I love that it references Wu Tang and “CREAM.” This one time, back in my past life when I was in business school, our corporate finance professor was trying to teach us the importance of your cash assets. He was this real young, hip, Irish guy — we used to drink rum & Coke in his class, just because we could — and he was like, “Can anyone tell me what CREAM means?” It stumped all of us — Cash Reserves for Equity And Materials? — except for this one quiet kid in the back who stuck his hand up and was like, “Cash Rules Everything Around Me! Wuuuuuuu-Tang!” We laughed for like ten minutes. In part because it was the funniest thing ever, and in part because we were all a little drunk.
The official video is below:
And here it is by the Chipmunks.
Seriously if nothing happens today, we’re just gonna be running videos all day. We’ll be like MTV in the ’80s. I can do this all day, people. I truly have nothing else to do today.

Ya know, Oprah and Obama makes me think of that schtick David Letterman used when he was hosting the Oscars. Remember that? “Oprah, Uma. Uma, Oprah.” You could just as easily stick “Obama” in that joke; it’s equally funny.
This is interesting.
One in three New Hampshire women between the ages of 18 and 29 said the talk-show queen’s recent campaign appearances with Barack Obama made them less likely to vote for the Illinois Democrat, according to a poll released yesterday by Zogby International and Lifetime Television.
At the other end of the age spectrum, 17 percent of women over 65 said Oprah’s support lowered their opinions of Obama.
And 73 percent of women said it made no difference to their campaign choices at all.
Voters don’t want “to have their entertainment figures involved in political support,” Fritz Wenzel, director of communications at Zogby International, told the Chicago Sun-Times.
In fairness, these statistics don’t address that all-important demo of women between 29 and 65, and the 73% figure isn’t qualified (which demo does it apply to?), and, with women 18-29, how did the remaining 2/3 respond? You always have to look at stats like this with a critical eye. I’d be interested in seeing the raw data. I checked the Zogby site for it, but couldn’t track it down. Anyone have any thoughts on where I might find it?

The new Tim Burton film, which opens nationwide today, has been almost universally loved by critics, although it’s supposed to be one of the darkest, most gruesome films ever made.
Says the NY Times:
Mr. Burton’s film adaptation of Mr. Sondheim’s musical, is as dark and terrifying as any motion picture in recent memory, not excluding the bloody installments in the “Saw” franchise…It is cruel in its effects and radical in its misanthropy, expressing a breathtakingly, rigorously pessimistic view of human nature. It is also something close to a masterpiece…What you see is as dark as the grave. What you hear — some of the finest stage music of the past 40 years — is equally infernal, except that you might just as well call it heavenly.
Man, I thought I’d go see this film, but gorier than Saw? I’m not sure if I can handle that.
Jezebel has more of the reviews compiled here.

Keri Russell and son River spend some quality time with Jen Garner and Violet Affleck on the UWS on NYC.
Look, maybe I just think all babies are cute.
But these are some cute-ass babies.

After spending a few days grinding around Berlin with model Julian Feitsma, Par-Par and her Wonderbra are back in the USA, and back on the town with Swedish pizza boy Alex Vaggo, who doesn’t appear to mind being very publicly cuckolded.
Here they are partying at Goa in Hollywood.
I like how, in one of the pictures, both of them are clutching their cellphones. What a sweet date. We’ll text the night away, darling!
