Is Ricky Gervais Getting A Golden Globe Makeover?

Ricky Gervais is ready for his close-up all right—just as soon as he gets a little nip/tuck.Prepping for his return stint as host of the Golden Globes, the funnyman took to Twitter yesterday to joke about the makeover he’s supposedly giving himself after last year’s uproar when he took heat for skewering nominees with a slew of harsh zingers. While he’ll presumably have less wrinkles, one thing’s for sure—he hasn’t lost his bite!

Gervais tweeted a picture of himself holding up a wad of cash in front of a plastic surgery center with the caption, “Some last minute preparation so I don’t look out of place at the Golden Globes.” So much for a kinder, mellow Ricky. The British comedian also promises fans he’ll be tweeting from backstage “so you don’t miss me when I’m not on the air.”

“Might be even more fun as I have no TV censorship,” he tweete.

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards is set to air live on NBC next Sunday beginning at 8 p.m.

Ex-Fleetwood Mac Guitarist Bob Weston Dies at 64

Bob Weston, a British guitarist who played with Fleetwood Mac, has died aged 64. Police say Weston’s body was found in his north London home last Tuesday after neighbors raised the alarm.

Police said Friday that his death was not being treated as suspicious. An autopsy revealed the causes of death as gastric intestinal hemorrhage, cirrhosis of the liver and throat problems.

Weston joined Fleetwood Mac in 1972 as replacement for Danny Kirwan, and played on the band’s albums “Penguin” and “Mystery to Me.” But during an American tour the next year, Mick Fleetwood discovered Weston was having an affair with his wife, Jenny Boyd. Weston was fired.

He released several solo albums and recorded with musicians including Long John Baldry, Murray Head and Steve Marriott.



Cee Lo Apologizes (Sort of) For Changing ‘Imagine’ Lyrics

Cee Lo Green certainly tried to kick off the new year with class, performing a rendition of John Lennon’s iconic “Imagine” on NBC’s Carson Daly-hosted New Year’s Eve telecast. But the hard-working “Voice” judge wound up causing a stir for altering the lyrics from “Nothing to kill or die for / And no religion too” to “Nothing to kill or do for / And all religion’s true.”

Lennon fans responded angrily, and now Cee Lo has apologized. Kind of. Cee Lo tweeted “Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world where u could believe what u wanted that’s all.” (This tweet seems to have been deleted, but we tracked it down anyway).

Instead, Cee Lo replaced his tweet with a simple “Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!” That may be his way of saying he’d just prefer to move on. (So don’t expect him to perform this rendition when you catch “Loberace” in Las Vegas). Will Lennon’s fans let it be?
