Celebrity News Week Recap of November 26th 2004

If I knew adopting a nickname was going to be this popular I would have copywritten the action or tried to get some cash out that process. Celebrities are finally picking up what I started a long time ago ;) Call me Celikins!!

Mariah Adopts a New Name - Mimi
The singer now joins the list of divas who’ve taken an alternative moniker, such as Jennifer Lopez (J.Lo) and Madonna (Esther). In fact, Mariah Carey’s new name will appear in the title her forthcoming album: "The Emancipation of Mimi." | source: MSNBC
I suppose Mariah Carey is doing all she can to get back into the lime light in order ton increase sales fer her new CD, which is due out in March 2005 under the Def Jam Records label.  Her first single, entitled "Say Something" features both Pharrell Williams and Snoop Dogg,  It seems that Mimi is having financial difficulty.  In a recent article in Askmen.com headline read:

Mariah Goes For Broke
Mariah Carey, who has managed to steer clear of the tabloids of late, is in the news because -- get this -- she's almost broke. When Virgin gave her $28 mil to "go away" in 2001, one would've thought that she'd be rolling in the dough, but oh no. Considering her $7,200 a day hairdresser and makeup artist, it's a wonder she has enough money to eat. | source: Askmen.com

Another celebrity who is trying hard to stay away from the limelight is Ben Affleck.  His last two films (Gigli & Surviving Christmas) were crucified by critics and apparantly my the masses since they both flopped big time.

Even pal Kevin Smith couldn't convince Ben Affleck to join "Degrassi: The Next Generation."
Affleck apparently thinks that the public has had enough of him for right now. “He was just like, ‘You know what, dude? I’m a little too high profile right now. I’m trying to scale back,’” Smith told MoviePoop.com “He was just feeling the burn.
It’s been a bad [bleeping] year for him, and he keeps getting the [bleep] kicked out of him. | source: MSNBC
