“Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall was honored last night in London.  She took home the Ultimate Icon Award at the Cosmopolitan Magazine Ultimate Women of the Year awards.

“I will never, ever get used to receiving these awards because I always think of an icon as someone so much more important than I am, and especially some of the women in that room.”

“They’re saving people’s lives – I mean, I make people laugh, hopefully, and I entertain them and I love to do that, but I am really inspired by these men and women who really give up so much of their lives and really change the world,” she said

“I’m so proud to be here tonight, just being in the room with all these people who I believe are real icons.”

Other winners were Britney Spears who won Ultimate Comeback Star, while Sugababes were given the Ultimate Mistresses of Music award and R ‘n’ B singer Estelle was awarded the Ultimate Believe In Your Talent award.

Jimmy Kimmel broke Sarah Silverman’s heart!

I couldn’t believe it when Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel broke up!  They never said what happened but tonight when Sarah Silverman won an Emmy for her video she made for Jimmy entitled, “I’m fucking Matt Damon”, she dedicated her award to him and said, “Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart – oh, who’ll always have a place in my heart.”

Personally I’m still hoping that these two can kiss and make up!  Then again, what on Earth did Jimmy do to her?!

 

Special VMA preview! September 4, 2008

MTV hosted a press conference for the MTV VMA awards at the Paramount lot in Hollwood today.  They wanted to give the press a little taste of what Russell Brand and MTV will bring to the masses.  To start with, a limo pulls up and out comes Christina Aguilera in some extra tell sexy heels promising to perform her new song, “Keeps Getting Better,” which is also the name of a best-of album she’s releasing in November.

“You’re going to get a first look and a first listen at my new image and my new sound,” she said. “The last album, the style and sound was about vintage glam — this one is all about the future.”

Next surprise guest who appeared from a fire escape in the New York backlot, rapper T.I.!  He also confessed he’d be performing a new song from his forthcoming lp, “Paper Trail.”

He says, “The people can expect action-packed pandemonium from top to bottom,” he said, before turning to Brand and adding, “Those are some impressive pants you’ve got there. Are they denim? I thought they were spray-on aerosol.”

Russie also broke the news that Kanye West would be getting over his strike against the VMA’s and will close the show!  Oh one more thing, did I mention that Kid Rock was there and he confirmed he’d be performing……..with Lil Wayne?!
