A Semana: The Police, Matthew McConaughey, Itacaré, And A Brazilian At Dior

Away from Brazilian stages for over 25 years, The Police packed Maracanã stadium in Rio with 74 thousand people for their only performance in the country last Saturday night. In spite of what I hear was a great performance, according to an online poll less than 40% were happy with the show. There were slow lines at the entrance of the stadium, and security was a problem: no metal detectors were turned on, and bags were not being checked.

The much talked about movie Tropa de Elite is set to make its international debut at the Berlin Film Festival in February, where it will be running for a Golden Bear. The last Brazilian movie to win the big prize was Central Station back in 1998.

Save the bartender, save the world: Lance Bass' ex Pedro Andrade has a new gig.

Rumor has it that Camila Alves is pregnant with Matthew McConaughey's baby.

The strike by the Writers Guild of America may result in a new season loaded with reality TV in the US. I am certainly not complaining, but I am already dying to know what happens on Heroes. Hopefully I will be able to watch it via Hulu next season.

Itacaré is the only Brazilian town which made it to the New York Times' list of 53 places to go in 2008.

Brazilian model Thomaz de Oliveira was hand-picked by Kris Van Assche as one of the new faces for the Dior Homme spring campaign. The new ads were shot by none other that kaiser Karl.

The first image of David Beckham in the new Armani underwear campaign hits the web, and it's quite a tease.

Brazilian player (and my ex-crush) Adriano gets awarded the Bidone d'Oro (or Golden Toilet) for being the biggest disappointment in soccer in Italy this year.


Too bad that Hulu is available only in the U.S. :(
