JLo, Statham, and that ring

Let’s talk about Parker first. Parker is the movie Jennifer Lopez did with Jason Statham. A trailer has just been released and there’s a lot to laugh at, none of it intended that way. And immediately too, starting with Statham’s introduction. HE IS NOT PLAYING A CHARACTER. That’s...just who is when he’s trying to be who he thinks he should be! I’ve not seen any Jason Statham movies. And I don’t mean Guy Ritchie movies that include Jason Statham. I mean the movies that always end in “-er”: The Bouncer, The Racer, The Woodchopper -- none of them. But my problem with this particular Jason Statham movie, and perhaps it characterises all Jason Statham movies, I dunno, is that it’s entirely based on something totally ridiculous -- in this case a person who’s supposed to kill him (evidently in front of entire crew of gangsters) fails to the only job that’s required of him. But whatever. If I can watch The Avengers, and Tony Stark building a machine that allows him to fly into another dimension to plant a nuclear bomb, I suppose I should be able to get down with this -- Jason Statham, the everyman hero who lives on the edge, only to find himself obsessed with revenge based on a rather fragile premise. Whatever. He’s given Jennifer Lopez a job. And this is the point. Who was the genius who put this one together? Somehow their characters’ interaction involves her taking her clothes off at the beginning of their relationship. Something tells me this is not Out Of Sight. Oh yes Out Of Sight. Out Of Sight is the problem, isn’t it? Out Of Sight is why we complain about The Back-up Plan and all the other bullsh-t she signs on to. We might have to let go of Out Of Sight now. Out Of Sight is not the JLo who slumloves it with a cheesy backup dancer and waves a big ass ring around Europe, prompting a new round of speculation about whether or not she’s engaged for the 5th, maybe 6th time, if you count Puff Diddy. Everyone’s talking about the diamond she had on at Paris Fashion Week. You can see a close-up of it below. I received an email the other day, or maybe it was a tweet, from someone who linked to a photo of it and wrote “Say it ain’t so, Lainey!” What do you mean “Say it ain’t so”? It is ALWAYS so. When have you known Jennifer Lopez NOT to fall in love for the sake of falling in love, and often loving down instead of loving across, or even up, and not end up married...for not-forever? Here she is in Lisbon today and, obviously, that loser is there too. Also attached - Statham on the set of Homefront on Tuesday.

The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
