Bradley Cooper International Man Award, Pamela Anderson, Back To The Future Shoes – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 09 September 2011

09 Sep

Bradley Cooper – Wedding Crashers and The Hangover star Bradley has won the GQ International Man Award.

Bradley started his acting career with a part in Sex and the City back in 1999. Although he appeared in a number of other tv programmes including the travel series Globe Trekker his acting career didn’t really kick off until his parts in Wedding Crashers and The Hangover.

Bradley is currently filming The Silver Linings Playbook, also starring Robert De Niro and Jennifer Lawrence, a film about a former teacher who has spent 4 years in a mental institution and then tries to reconcile with his ex-wife.

Earlier this year it was reported that Bradley’s relationship with Renee Zellweger had ended after a period of around a year together.

Pamela Anderson – Celebrity Big Brother host Brian Dowling announced that Pamela Anderson is to join the new series of Big Brother starting today.

The announcement that Pamela is to join the 14 new housemates was made just after CBB winner Paddy Doherty had beaten pre-show favourites Kerry Katona and Jedward.

The former Baywatch star said at the announcement “I’m going to give them the ride of their lives. I’m going to leave a skid mark on every one of them… See you tomorrow. Watch out!”

As the new series is a non-celebrity BB it is unclear at present if Pamela will be a fully fledged housemate or will be undertaking a slightly different role to the others.

As well as being a tv and movie actress Pamela is a former Playboy Playmate of the Month and holds the distinction of appearing on more Playboy covers than anyone else. With her liking of revealing outfits we are sure that people will get to see why Pamela’s nude modelling career has spanned over 3 decades. As you can see from the accompanying photo, Pam’s wardrobe is from the “if you’ve got it flaunt it” section of the store.

Back To The Future shoes – Nike have teamed up with one of the film’s stars. Michael J Fox to create the iconic Nike Air Mag shoes from the Back To The Future II film.

1500 pairs of the shoes have been created to sell on eBay over the next 10 days. The proceeds will go to the Michael J Fox Foundation, which helps sufferers of Parkinson’s Disease. Michael himself was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991, finally announcing this to the public in 1999. In March 2010 he received an honorary doctorate in medicine from the Karolinska Institute for his contribution to research in Parkinson’s Disease.

Unlike the shoes in the film the special edition Nike’s don’t self-lace but they do light up with blue LED’s in the soles. The shoes were designed with the help of Tinker Hatfield, the man who created the original shoes for the film.The very first pair of the special edition shoes to be auctioned went to UK rapper Tinie Tempah, who paid $37,500 for them.

If you want to get in on the act yourself the eBay auctions begin at 4.30 a.m. UK time and each auction runs for just 24 hours unlike the standard eBay auctions.

Hurricane Katia – Katia is the 11th storm to be named and the 2nd major hurricane of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Although Katia is currently off the NE coast of the US it is forecast to hit Scotland as a tropical storm on 12th September at around 4pm. The British Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for the North and West of the country and the effects are expected to be felt from late Sunday (11th) night.

We can be thankful that by the time it hits this part of the world Katia will have been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm but although these produce less powerful wind speeds they do tend to strike over a larger area.

The last full hurricane to reach the UK was Hurricane Bill which did not cause that much trouble for us although Hurricane Lil in 1996 and Hurricane Charley in 1986 were far worse when they hit.
