Welcome to the inaugural edition of Ahrean’s Hot Topic Blog! Every morning you’re going to get Ahrean’s thoughts on various hot news stories happening around the world and it can range from world news, to celebrity gossip, to reality show happenings and much more!
First things first. 45 years after the assasination of Malcolm X, the only man to ever admit to the shooting was freed on Tuesday, April 27th.
His name is Thomas Hagan, and he was also the last man serving time for the assassination as well. He was one of the three men he said participated in the shooting, but also said the other two convicted with him were not actually involved in the shooting. Those two men jailed with him maintained their innocence and were freed in the 1980′s. Mr. Hagan has repeatedly expressed regret for the assassination saying he was a man full of rage and anger at the time and acted on impulse and loyalty to religious leaders. Many are decrying his release, although I have to say that while what he did was atrocious and wrong, he served his time, expressed remorse and is a prime example of when parole should be granted. He received his after 16 previous tries as well. He did the crime, he served the time, he should be free.
Courtney Love, widow to the late great Kurt Cobain, claims that she carried on an 8 month affair with rocker Gavin Rossdale, husband to Gwen Stefani!
She states her time with him was “lovely” and that many criticized her for the affair as he was too much like her late husband. She also states he was good in bed, even saying maybe Gwen taught him how to be good and that Stefani knew of the affair. She goes on further to say that he was also with a few other people as well. Not sure what to think of this really. Is this the ramblings of someone who has been out of the limelight for a long time and wants publicity, or a scorned woman who wants to dredge something up to take the hurt of rejection away? Either way, it doesn’t say much for someone who would knowingly have an affair with a married man and if it’s true obviously for him as well to cheat on his wife.
So I didn’t catch all of American Idol last night, but I did catch Casey James and Crystal Bowersox and I thought both were fantastic! Casey really hit his stride in his Shania song, and honestly, this could be the best genre for him to sing. Crystal lightened it up with her song, and I think gave a playfullness that she previously hasn’t shown in her performances.
Update on Brett Michaels. According to an article on msn.com, his website gave a detailed update to his condition. (What follows is the link to the article) http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=496248&affid=100055 .

All I know is that I liked Brett Michaels before, even enjoying the cheesy campiness of his Rock of Love seasons and am truly loving watching him on Celebrity Apprentice. I wish nothing but the best towards a speedy recovery for him.
Well well well, the Bachelor is no more on Dancing With The Stars. I liked him enough but I’m glad never to have to see his fiancee Vienna in that audience ever again. Fake one she is, never liked her. Truth be told though, I did think he was the weakest on the show and wasn’t surprised by his ouster. After the god awful Kate Gosselin was gone, I knew it would get down to the nitty gritty of who can really cut the mustard on this show and he’d have to majorly step up his game to make it through, alas that didn’t happen. So bye bye Jakers, off to plan your wedding now buddy?
