Ecorazzi Quickies: Jennifer Hudson Needs Cars, Serena Williams Reads Red, & Dave Stewart Goes Green
Another week, another round of Ecorazzi quickies. Nothing stops this green world from spinning out some good gossip, so let’s keep things moving and see what’s snappin’:
It seems Starbucks and Jennifer Hudson’s agent are no longer on good terms. The Oscar-winning actress/singer was slated to perform at the coffee chain’s annual shareholder meeting in Seattle, but the ‘bucks dropped her after her agent made some ridiculous requests Seems they wanted five cars, hair and make-up artists, security, humidifiers and chicken wings all paid for as part of her deal. Five cars? For her part, Hudson claims she knew nothing about the requests; but damn, your agent is certainly keen on living the Hollywood lifestyle. Might be time to watch a little Living With Ed.
Here in Miami, the tennis stars are currently ev-er-y-where due to their Sony Ericsson Open and all. Getting ready to play, Serena Williams currently holds a 35-5 record in the Key Biscayne tourney. Williams recently participated in the National Education Association’s “Reading on the Red Carpet” event. Her choice? Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Things You Can Think!
Music man Dave Stewart is taking his involvement with Greenpeace to a whole new level. His company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment is going “to share Los Angeles offices with a Greenpeace branch where they will work together to mix media, art and celebrity with social activism.” Get ready for “Go Green”, a song that will launch just in time for Earth Day. (Thanks for the tip, Linton!)
