Hollyweird: Jay-Z's Bud, Borat vs. Gypsies and Liza & David

By Liz Kelly

Okay, after scanning the entertainment wires, I'm left with no choice but to add yet another sheet to the Hollyweird file. What is this Hollyweird file of which I speak, you ask? Why, obviously, it's where these stories belong:

Bring this man two Buds. (Reuters)

Can I Get a Bud, Bud?
Something about Jay-Z pimping Budweiser just smacks of sell out. Trust me, I'm a big Jigga fan and have cheered his incredible stewardship of Def Jam Records and Rocawear, not to mention his kick-[butt] on-again, off-again music career and his long-term relationship with Beyonce. Still, I was surprised to learn that he'll be the new public face of Budweiser Select (whose current campaign features urban singles on a subway car and urges us to "expect everything"). Jay-Z has already appeared in one commercial alongside NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Indy Racing League driver Danica Patrick. (Full Story)

Age Scores Beauty
Gina Lollabrigida (who I didn't realize was still alive) is set to wed a man 34 years her junior. The 79-year-old actress will marry 45-year-old Spaniard Javier Rigau y Rafols before the end of the year. The two have been dating for 22 years. You do the math. (Full Story)

Gypsies No Like 'Borat' Man
Faux Kazakh it boy Borat (aka Sacha Baron Cohen) is being sued by European Center Of Anti-Ziganism Research, which claims the British comic's new movie "Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan" could incite violence against gypsies. (Full Story)

Liza and David, Together Again
Sadly, we all missed out on the Liza Minelli/David Gest reality series that never was but thanks to the wonder that is YouTube, all precious 30 minutes of the pilot is currently viewable online. I'm
not sure what's scarier -- Liza groping random dogs, "schvitzing", getting jiggy with it, being impersonated by a nine-year-old boy or David.

Make sure to watch all three parts.
