Fabrice Muamba “Critically Ill” After Suffering Heart Attack During Soccer Match

Fabrice Muamba

A FA Cup quarter-final match between the Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur was abandoned after midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed during the 41st minute of the match. The soccer player remained in critical condition on Sunday morning.

Doctors and paramedics performed sustained resuscitation efforts on Muamba for well over five minutes on the field before removing him. Muamba was “not breathing” as he left the field and was taken to London’s Chest Hospital. Doctors were able to eventually get his heart working again. The Guardian reports Muamba’s heart was not working independently for two hours after the cardiac event.

Club Manager Owen Coyle later told the media, “Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial. We’ve obviously been inundated with people wishing him well and we hope that if everybody can pray strongly tonight that Fabrice is able to recover. It’s very serious. There’s not getting away from that. He’s critically ill and God willing he makes it through.”

The crowd of 36,000 held their heads in silence as Muamba was removed.

Goofy Video From Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale Helps Make Carly Rae Jepsen’s Career

12 Mar

A winning recipe for launching a pop music career? Apparently, getting a bunch of the biggest tween stars in the world to dance in the silliest way possible to the perfect pop song is a good way to go.

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Alfredo Flores, Ashley Tisdale, the guys from Big Time Rush (?) and other huge tween stars somehow came together (after what seemed to be a fun evening) and recorded this low budget lip sync to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”

There is an official music video, but it has 19 million views fewer than the tween sensations’ YouTube inspiration.

It is pretty much pop gold. You can pretend to hate it, but you’re pretending.

Whitney Houston’s Last Performance and Time of Death

11 Feb

Whitney Houston

Update 2: New sources now claim Houston was found “unresponsive” in a bathtub in her fourth floor room. Reports also claim Houston was drinking and partying heavily last evening at her hotel. Police have asked for a search warrant to search her room for evidence, including drugs.

Update: TMZ says Houston’s mother and cousin Diane Warwick spoke to the singer just minutes before she died. They said she sounded normal and their conversations were mundane. Though earlier reports suggested that R&B singer Ray-J found Houston dead, those have been discounted and multiple sources now say her bodyguard found her unresponsive. Paramedics performed CPR for nearly 30 minutes, but were unable to resuscitate the singer. Ex-husband Bobby Brown is in Memphis for a New Edition concert. Reports suggest he is “beside himself” with grief.

Video posted to YouTube appears to show the last performance of Whitney Houston, who died earlier today at the age of 48. TMZ reports that a member of Houston’s staff found her unresponsive, called for help, and paramedics unsuccessfully performed CPR. Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m.

Houston was last seen on Feb. 10 for a rare public appearance ahead of the Grammys. She briefly took the stage at Tru Hollywood nightclub where she attended “Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For The Love Of R&B Grammy Party.”  She had not been seen on the red carpet for a year.

Paparazzi captured a belligerent and bleeding Houston leaving the nightclub early in the morning of Feb. 10. Gossip sites were suggesting she needed to return to rehab. After taking a seat in the back of a waiting vehicle, Houston appeared to calm down.

Houston recently completed filming on “Sparkle,” her first movie in 15 years. The movie is due out in August 2012.

“We’re all kind of shocked, but nobody’s really surprised,” her publicist, Howard Bragman, said.

Whitney Houston Dead at 48

In one of the most shocking deaths to rock the music world since Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, superstar singer and troubled Hollywood legend Whitney Houston has died at age 48, her publicist confirmed. No information about how or where she died has been confirmed, but TMZ reports she died at the Beverly Hilton hotel this afternoon.

At her peak, Houston was one of the most dominant forces ever in the music world. She sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and starred in several hit movies.

Amazingly, every trending topic on Twitter right now is dedicated to the singer. Here is her biggest hit of all (a cover of a Dolly Parton song)— “I Will Always Love You.”
