[Current Mood |okayokay]
[Current Music |My sister's voice on the phone lol]

Sorryyyyyyyy Stephie!!!!! I kept forgetting, and like I said before, it did take me a while to figure out how to post in here lol! But ok, here I go...

TODAY! Justin is in Vegas! Everyone just found out about this yesterday thanks to Scooby at justinhasit.com. It's open to the public, but for a price of course. $100! American Idol 2 finalist, Corey Clarke, is also gonna be there... and get this... he's SINGING! I mean, WHAT?? Justin! Hellooo? Why isn't he singing? Ah well. Doors open at 10pm, so expect a tipsy Justin that night! lmao. Go here to find more info.


At the end of March, Justin will be on Hollywood Squares for a week! Not positive of the EXACT dates, but all we know is it's the last week of March, first week of April. So assume March 29th is the first day that he will be on! I'm so excited for this, I hope the people pick him LOTS and LOTS! Well, if there's a woman there, she's bound to (wink).

April 17th, Justin will be at Briarwood Mall to judge a singing contest, as well as meet and greet, and sing! Who's he judging? YOU! That's right, you can enter to sing in front of Justin and win a $1000 Wardrobe Shopping Spree at Briarwood Mall. Here's more info.


Then May 30th he'll be sing THREE songs, do a meet & greet, and answer questions at the Licking Heights High School Auditorium, located 10 minutes east of Columbus in Pataskala, Ohio. Only 500 tickets will be sold, and they're selling fast. $25 each. Go here for much more info.


Also, you can donate money in JUSTIN'S name to the above event. Read more here.


And that's all for now! So, it looks like there will be many great things coming Justin's way. It's only just the beginning.

Oh and Justin was on Spongebob Squarepants goes Prehistoric! It was sooooo cute!


It's under "Guest Television Appearences". Make sure to look at the other videos they have, just in case you've missed other things!

Stephie, I'll make sure to update this more if new things come up. Again SORRY! Muah

Fox News Philly [Feb. 21st, 2004|11:57 am]

Justin was on Fox News Philly on Feb 18th...

JustinsMyIdol6 Sent: 2/18/2004 8:24 PM

here's the important pts.....it was about 7 mins long!!! GC is Gerald Colpain, the interviewer.
J "Its like the old joke, if you wanna make God laugh...tell him your plans"
GC "No he didnt win. but on sept 4th the sky looked like the limit for 23 year old Justin Guarini" (showed some new old bar mitz clips..really awesome ones!).....now he was the runner up to Texan Kelly Clarkson. There was a tour, a movie, and finally after 10 months an album...and that was when the trouble had started"
J "When the album came out, it didn't do as well as people had hoped it was going to do"
GC "That is an understatement....."
GC "Slowly Justin began to fade from the spotlight...."(they show J at the Warminster cd signing and they fade his body out of the pic its actually kind of sad!)
talking about the album failure..
It didnt come from my heart, it didn't represent who I am, and there was a lot of compromise, a lot of struggle"
talks about 19, rca....
GC "But Justin is also not shy about charging 19 managment and RCA with an almost total lack of promotion and no single release prior to the album"
J "3 months to write and record an album is obscene......it was just poor timing and it was rushed"
GC talks about j2k failure.
GC talks about "competition" with clay...
GC "Justin had to stand by and watch the next idol runner up sell millions of records and gain even more fans. In a year's time the producers had learned how to produce their number two star. Unfortunately Justin said, they praticed on him"
J "You just sit there and you're helpless, absolutely helpless. You feel like so many people are pulling for you and you let them down."
Simon on J:
Simon "I think he's a good wedding singer and thats as far as it goes. I saw him fall into the trap of believing your own hype and your ego gets out of control a bit. I think Justin has a great personality, he's a nice kid but he's a wedding singer."
GC "Does it make you angry?"
J "I can either be angry about it or I can be motivated by it. I can change that frustration and that anger and take it and not let it get to me. B/c if i let it get to me, that means that maybe I think that there's truth to that. and I know there's no truth to a lot of whats out there. Alot of people putting me down. Thats what they wanna do, thats life testing you, thats life saying do you have the metal?"
talk about new management.
says he remains very upbeat (show him laughing during the interview)
J "The music industry is the most cut throat industry of anything I've ever been involved with. Its just dog eat dog."
GC "So the music biz hasnt chewed you up and spit you out?"
J "No, they tried to chew me up and spit me out but they can't get rid of me, I'm not gonna go away"
J "This is my calling, this is my heart, this is my desire, this is what I love to do"
They talk more about J back live at the studio
They continue to compliment J!
"I've never seen anyone with his head screwed on as tight as this kid. He's not bitter he's not angry, he's just trying to get ahead. He doesn't care if it takes six or seven or eight more albums, he believes this is his destiny and he wouldnt' accept anything less!!"

yay for justin!!

Justin to be in Texas today [Feb. 21st, 2004|11:26 am]

American Idol alum to visit McAllen nightclub
February 20,2004
Dulcinea Cuellar
Monitor Staff Writer
About 150 people are expected to attend a one-hour seminar Saturday at Prada Night Club (131 East Nolana) featuring Edinburg native Gavin Navarro, from Gigi Entertainment and former American Idol alum Justin Guarini.
The seminar will feature friendly advice from Navarro, a Los Angeles celebrity consultant, and Guarini, a singer/actor who received international acclaimed when he went to the last round of the FOX reality TV show American Idol. Guarini lost the title to Fort Worth-area native Kelly Clarkson.
The seminar begins at 3 p.m. and features an opportunity to talk with Navarro and Guarini about their successes/failures in Hollywood.
The two will talk to the group about the ups and downs of the Hollywood business, what aspiring entertainers will need to get ahead of their competition and the best way to start in the business.
“There are a lot of misconceptions out there,” said Giselle Gonzalez, owner of Pulse Magazine and co-partner of Gigi Entertainment. “And we really want to clear (the air) and help people get ahead.”
Some of the topics include organizing a casting reel, getting headshots and other easy, but time consuming items.
“Sometimes all people bring into an audition are headshots (when they need a reel tape),” Gonzalez said. “So they just wasted everyone’s time.”
Admission to the seminar is $200 a person.
“It can get very expensive to cover the cost to bring these people down,” Gonzalez said. “But this isn’t going to be the only one. We’re planning to have other celebrities, actors, agents and models come as well.”
Gonzalez said people like Navarro and Guarini are coming down to McAllen to find new talent. However, with the recent box-office bomb of From Justin to Kelly, a musical featuring the two ‘02 American Idols, and being released from his RCA Records deal, the guy with the flashy smile and kewpie-doll hair might just be looking for a new gig.
“Justin is really busy,” Gonzalez said. “He just wants to come down here and help give people advice on how to help their career. Right now, though, he just wants to focus on his acting.”

Justin's Incredible!! [Feb. 19th, 2004|10:41 pm]

He posted AGAIN! It's only been what like four days! He's so wonderful, this one made me teary eyed!

You never cease to amaze me…

I just finished an interview with Entertainment Weekly, and found out that it’s going to be a 4-page spread in next weeks issue! 4 pages are amazing…and I have you all to thank! When the journalist told me about why she was able to secure a serious spread like the one you’ll see, she said her chief argument rested on the massive amount of fan response they got from the “Fallen Idol” article. I had no idea you guys sent so much stuff to them…she literally took out a thick folder full of your letters and emails! Way to go! The people really do have some of the power!!! Thank you for believing and sending me your love…you see, it has repercussions far beyond what you might imagine, and you never know what doors it can open. Although this is a great victory, I urge you to be selective and focused with your passions…this was a concentrated effort and one that proved a worthy cause, however some fights are just not worth the time and too many fights can wear out even the greatest warriors. Pick and choose your battles wisely and revel in the spoils of victory, as well as the lessons of defeat. This was a battle well fought, with honor and love…and I can’t thank you enough. Look to the future with hope and passion! By the way I think the best way we can thank EW is by telling everyone we know to go out and buy a copy...they'll see the article was worth the time and effort and it's always nice to thank those who are willing believe in you and support you!!!!

Again…you never cease! I love the Valentines gift. I’m particularly fond of that shirt and am impressed at all the different languages you used to express your love. It warms my heart to see that you’re still in my corner, and I’ll honor you by doing everything I know how to do in order to make sure that your love is not offered in vain. I love “love” and know it’s thorns as much as it’s flower…thank you for being the ever-blooming flowers in my life, unaffected by the seasons of my career and happy to shine no matter what the “popular” weather may portend. In our hearts is an eternal spring and I cherish each and every reminder of that renaissance, and undying love that finds it way to my doorstep. It’s not the gifts I adore…it the hearts and the beautiful souls they represent.

From the depths….Thank you, and I love you too!

I hope everyone took some time today to love themselves…and the people who love them! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE PRESENTS…you guys really don’t have to do that, I’ve still got gobs of love left over from last year…YIPES! 1 year ago today I was in the middle of filming FJ2K…I can’t believe it, who knew it would be an Oscar contender this year…oh, wait…that’s not right, I must be a little punchy, it is 2 am here. Thanks for all the love and I hope you’re enjoying the subtle press releases about my eventual comeback…thanks for standing by me even when it looked really gloomy. I got lots ‘o work to do lads and lasses (hey, if they can play x-mas music in November, I can get ready for St. Patty’s day in February!) and it’s gonna take a little time, so be patient, and be ready. You’ve stuck in there this long, a little while longer (comparatively speaking) won’t break the love bank!

Thank you so much for your gifts…I can’t wait to share the gift I’ve been given with you all again! Soon…very soon…

Live, Love, and Learn!!!



he posted not only once but twiceeee :):)

Thank you for all your supportive comments, and your insatiable desire to keep the fires burning! You are to be commended for the little things you do every day to help keep me out there and keep me going! Bless you for all you do, and say, and think that is positive and uplifting...there are so many who want to destroy (I'm going way beyond just takking about me)...however you choose to create and be leaders (not followers). Try reading Robert Frost's poem that begins with "two roads diverged in a yellow wood...", and you'll see what I mean. It's my fav, hope you like it and are as inspired by it as I am. Much Love,
