Demi- out of rehab, at last!

Well, this sure is a relief!
Demi Lovato has finally left the rehab center where she's been since October, and is now settling back at home in LA. 
A source tells Celebuzz that Demi will "focus first and foremost on her well-being" and will "continue to see doctors in LA who will help her work on the issues she confronted in treatment."
As you may recall, the pop star shocked everyone when she quit the Jonas Brothers tour in South America to seek help for "emotional and physical issues." 
Now it seems that — at last — she's ready to get back to her career. Says the Celebuzz insider: "[Demi] is so grateful to all of her fans for their unbelievable support and looks forward to being able to talk to all of them very soon."

To be quite honest, I did cry of joy upon hearing it that day! so yeah, even though she's back, doesn't mean she'll be back to work... give it time. still, welcome back Demi!

Pics from Goukaiger's upcoming 1st episode

The Sentai's very own answer to Kamen Rider Decade's Great Rider War, The Legend War, will finally commence as part of the 1st episode's premiere. and yeah, the pics alone will show you how EPIC this really is.

Years ago, the 34 Super Sentai defended the Earth against Space Empire Zangyakku. The soldiers of legend lost their powers during this battle, but through their sacrifice, Zangyakku was able to be repelled from the Earth.

 Red Falcon, fighting more grunts!

 The two ninja-themed Super Sentai themes, Ninja Sentai Kakuranger and Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger cooperrating with each other! Now, when will I see the Zyurangers and Abarangers fighting together?

Several years later, we meet a group of young pirates who travel aboard the ship, GoukaiGalleon. They are in search of the Uchuu Saidai no Takara(Greatest Treasure in the Universe). They head towards Earth, where it is said the Greatest Treasure rests.

 Captain Marvelous, transforming into GokaiRed

What is the thing that the Gokaigers saw from above? Could it be the Zangyakku? And why is Don doing Sun Vulcan references?!

The possible first monster of the week along with the grunts.

Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger sails Feb. 13, Part of Super Hero Time, on TV Asahi!

Burajira begins the ceremony for the "Kindan Tensoujutsu - NegaEnd" (Forbidden Transfer Technique NegaEnd). To accomplish this, Burajira needs to complete one more wedge. Meanwhile, Nozomu is suffering from his encounter with Burajira's Wicked GoseiPower. Eri begins to sing to heal his wounds.

Burajira appears, and the Goseiger head off to fight him, in hopes of stopping ceremony from happening, but it turns out the Third Wedge is not Ro-O-Za-Ri, as they though, but is in fact Dark GoseiKnight, and is the true form of his "Ultimate Power". The Goseiger are reluctant to fight their friend, but Arata decides decides that he will take him down, alone.

Epic 49: Mirai he no Tatakai (Fight Against the Future) - 1/30/11
The 3 Wedges are completed. In one hour, Burajira will hold his End Ceremony, and the Earth will be destroyed.

Arata and the others attack Burajira with all they have, but it is nowhere near enough...

Epic 50 (FINAL): N/A - 2/6/11
Arata stops Hyde, who was about to sacrifice himself to take out Brajira. "Fighting together and supporting each other" is important. As things are, Burajira's plan to destroy the Earth is continuing successfully. Arata and the others begin to swell with a New Power, and stand up to Burajira.

Selena: Topless photo- NOT REAL!

Hey haters? Leave this poor girl alone! 

There's been a cruel rumor going around about an allegedly topless photo of Selena Gomez that's been leaked. But, as we could've probably guessed, it's all lies.

According to TMZ, sources are saying the Wizards of Waverly Place star is super angry, and that her lawyers are getting on the case immediately. As they should, right?

Let's all hope this gets resolved soon.

Besides, I can tell one flaw to prove the photo was fake: it didn't have Selena's "chest mole" in her left breast. that alone is proof.

Super Sentai 35th anniversary movie opens this May!

Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger
Good news to all Super Sentai fans out there! Aside from the 35th Anniversary series, Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger, TOEI had announced an anniversary movie. Tentatively entitled Super Sentai 35-Saku Kinen Sakuhin, it stars all 199 heroes in spandex from Himitsu Sentai Goranger to present.

And aside from all the multi-colored heroes taking part in Super Sentai 35-Saku Kinen Sakuhin, the film will also feature the appearances of all the giant robots or mecha in the franchise. The use of giant robots started way back in 1979's Battle Fever J which officially started to use the term Super Sentai. So far, no plot details have been revealed.

In Addition, TOEI is also celebrating the 40th anniversary of Ishinomori'sKamen Rider franchise with two movies this year. First off is OOO - Den-O - All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Rider, which stars the original, Kamen Rider #1, as he travels with the DenLiner Crew and Kamen Rider OOO in time. It will be shown on April 1.

The second Kamen Rider movie this year will be the yearly Super Sentai and Kamen Rider movie double billing tentatively entitled Gekijō-ban Kamen Rider OOO/Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger that will be shown on August 6.

Another question comes into our minds now. Will be also be getting a Movie Wars 2011 film starring Kamen Rider OOO and the 2011 Kamen Rider this December?

Hannah Montana Forever ends tomorrow, but...

Tomorrow, the hit series that began in 2006 as a spiritual successor to the grandmother of all Disney teen sitcoms, Lizzie McGuire finally comes to an end. and yes, what I'm talking about is Hannah Montana Forever.

Now that Miley Stewart finally revealed her dual-identity, graduated High School, and finally fixed up everything, it's all done right? Not at all. the final chapter in her life now goes two ways: College, or a new career. But how will she go on, if she had to take two choices: one that involves her friend Lilly, or one that is not to be missed for good...

What she will choose this time?

Check out the one-hour show closer tomorrow on Disney Channel.

and you think I was done with that post eh? well...

Unfortunately for us Moliver shippers. our hopes are... dead. Loliver and Jiley (the J there is Jesse, not Jake, good thing he was kicked off the series) are the final couples in the finale (blame the episode trailer), so... DAMN YOU MICHAEL PORYES AND THE CREW!!! THANKS A FRICKIN' LOT FOR SCREWING US MOLIVER SHIPPERS...

No Moliver... that's just frickin' great. unless he does a alternate ending for the finale, we got nothing... NOTHING!!!

Here's hoping Shake It Up gets NO parings, save for Ty and Tinka...
(Sorry for the anger, this coming from a Moliver Shipper.)
