7 Dream Celebrity Cruises We Really Wish Were Real

After getting an email announcing that The Weezer Cruise is making its triumphant return in 2014, we got to thinking about celebrity cruises. Everyone from Kate Gosselin to Kenny G has been taking their act to the high seas, but we have yet to see some of our favorite celebs get in on the action (Chavril, where are you?!). Grab your bedazzled bikini and click on the gallery to check out seven imagined celebrity cruises that we really wish were real….

Dear Robert Wilkinson (aka drunk guy who sang “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a cop),

Hello. Nice to meet you. Queen is also my favorite band, although I prefer “Fat Bottomed Girls” or “Somebody to Love.” Sometimes when the world feels overwhelming and I don’t know what to do, I sing Queen. There’s something soothing about  singing their songs aloud. They help put life in perspective. Speaking of “Somebody to Love” … I think you should drop me a line if you’re sober now. I’m not into drunks. Plus you live in Canada.  I don’t know if serenading cops is a regular thing for you — I really hope not. But this happened back in November, so I’m assuming you’ve got your shit together by now. I should tell you, I really liked your message about “brotherhood of men on the planet earth.” I can tell you are a peaceful man at heart and that “physical violence is the least of [your] priorities.” I think we should go do some karaoke together. What say you?

Yours,

Ami Angelowicz

20 Years Ago Today, Freddie Mercury Passed Away

Not only is it Thanksgiving — Happy Turkey & Sides Day, everyone! — it’s also the 20th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death. Mercury, the lead singer of, oh, the greatest band ever in my humble opinion, passed away from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS in 1991. He died just one day after he revealed to the world that he had the disease. RIP, Freddie — your legacy lives on in the music you gave to the world!

We love a good Lifetime movie as much as the next girl. No seriously, we’ve watched “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?” more times collectively than we’d wish to confess. But we’re a little skeptical of a new flick that Lifetime has in the works called “Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story.” The network has put out a casting call looking for actresses “who can believably span ages of 16 to 22″ for the role. But will they really be able to find someone to walk in Gaga’s (Alexander McQueen Armadillo) shoes?

This information comes at the same time as news that Lady Gaga is apparently being courted to become the lead singer of Queen.
