1. Lady Gaga's Newest Album
Born this Way. Just last night Lady Gaga announced the release dates of both her first single and the record itself. The song "Born this Way" will premiere on Grammy night, (February 13, 2011) and the Album itself will come out May 23rd. Also, keep your ears open for her duet with Elton John for the movie Gnomeo and Juliet, "Hello, Hello," which comes out February 11th.
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
The fourth Pirates movie is coming out May 20. Whether you like it or you hate it, you're gonna have to at least see it, right? Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush reunite in the film, along with Penelope Cruz and some other great stars. Sadly, the Will Turner/Elizabeth Swann story has come to an end, and some say the series has gone too long anyway. But this is still another anticipated chapter of Bruckheimer Pirate lore. Stay tuned.
3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II
Yep. Probably the most-anticipated movie of the year. The END of Harry Potter happens July 15. This is the second chapter of the seventh book, which was divided into two movies. The first Deathly Hallows got excellent reviews. Let's see just how epic the end of this fantastic movie series can get!! Midnight premiere, anyone??
4. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
Yet another if-you-love-it-or-you-hate-it-you-gotta-know-about-it movie. The end of this saga comes out November 18. There have been rumors about breaking this movie up into two parts as well, but as far as I can see, there ain't much for two movies in this final book. I saw Eclipse when it came out last summer, and I must say it was quite the eye-candy fest. And for that, I love it. Let's see just how amazing these attractive men look in the final chapter.
Johnny Depp stars in a western-esque animated movie about the troubles of a Chameleon sheriff. Apparently the animation for this movie uses the same technology as the character Golum in Lord of the Rings. Johnny Depp NOT in a Tim Burton film is always something to look forward to in my book. Keep March 4 in mind, people.
6. New Grayson Chance album
Remember that kid who got famous because of his cover of Paparazzi that was posted on YouTube? Well Ellen Degeneres took that kid under her wing and now he's got an album coming out sometime this year. This kid could be the new Justin Bieber. Maybe.
7. New Within Temptation album
Called The Unforgiving, the album is set to release March 2011. This album is a concept based on a comic book series by Steven O'Connell. If you love Within Temptation like I do, you will keep your ears open for more.
8. ROB THOMAS REJOINS MATCHBOX TWENTY!!
It has been announced on his website that Rob Thomas will be going on tour once again with Matchbox Twenty, starting January first. A new album is also somewhere in the works, though no specific date has been announced.
9. Glee Season 3
Yep. There will be a third season of Glee. Not quite sure when it will start but I'm guessing Fall 2011. Yippeeeee!!!!
10. Justin Bieber's voice change.
It's gonna happen. It's gonna happen.
