'Titanic' re-release making waves all over again for new fans
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon visit to a certain boat finds, well, that certain boat, Neil Young, other things, and the mystery music video.
TITANIC: Can’t keep a good ship down, per the Huffington Post, “The re-release of James Cameron's blockbuster has come with its fair share of exclamation-point-nostalgia, which is to be expected of the second highest-grossing film of all time, having ensnared, most of all, pre-tweens.” http://huff.to/Hg9yMV
SMART MOVE: Neil Young is nobody’s dummy, per Rolling Stone, “They might sound like great song titles, but "21st Century Record Player," "Earth Storage" and "Thanks for Listening" aren't new Neil Young tunes. They're trademarks that the rocker recently filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Rolling Stone has found, and they indicate that Young is developing a high-resolution audio alternative to the MP3 format.” http://bit.ly/HiB0vk
GOOD FOR HIM: It’s just so weird, per TMZ, “Dr. Bill Dorfman -- a world famous dentist who treats some of the biggest stars on Earth -- tells TMZ he keeps a "secret stash" of the teeth he's plucked from the mouths of his famous patients ... in the hopes of eventually selling them on eBay.” http://bit.ly/HrmEV3
LAUER-SEACREST: Game on, per the AP, “Ryan Seacrest is coming to NBC, but he won't be overthrowing Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. The entertainment titan sat down with Lauer on Wednesday's show to announce that he'll be taking part in NBC's coverage of the Summer Olympics.” http://apne.ws/HUpq7B
HER BUSINESS: But there also is the whole role-model thing, per Us Weekly, “In the May issue of ELLE, the chart-topping "We Found Love" singer, 24, finally acknowledges -- and sort of explains -- why she's back in contact with ex Chris Brown. Over three years after Brown's violent assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna, the twosome collaborated on two singles -- and have been secretly hooking up for over a year, multiple sources have confirmed to Us Weekly.” http://bit.ly/HKur6T
WAHOOS: Of U.Va., per the New York Times, “Ted Genoways, the editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review whose tenure was both award-winning and tumultuous, will leave the literary magazine at the end of May. Calling him “an outstanding editor,” Thomas C. Skalak, the vice president for research at the University of Virginia, announced Mr. Genoways’ resignation in a statement on Wednesday.” http://nyti.ms/HKsrIv
HEART BE STILL: Debut times, per The Hollywood Reporter, “HBO is giving its subscribers something to post on their calendars. The premium cable channel announced the premiere dates for its much-buzzed about series, True Blood (6-10) and Newsroom (6-24).” http://bit.ly/Hdp6nW
BREAKING: Stop the presses, per Radar, “Camille Grammer was threatened by her boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos' baby mama and ex-girlfriend, Lisa Chynoweth during a crucial time in her custody battle with ex-hubby, Kelsey Grammer, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.” http://bit.ly/HosJCe
BREAKING II: Just the facts, per the Insider, “Kendall and Kylie Jenner just uploaded a new music video to their YouTube page called "Kardashian Jenner Family Music Video - Lady Marmalade from Moulin Rouge." http://bit.ly/H72vWA
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. http://bit.ly/Bu6QJ
