  2. Eeeuuuww - I'd buy an album by Olivia, but does Travolta sing? I mean, except when his legs are in the air?

  4. Is that a tattoo on Travolta's head?

    You're going a little overboard on the head-tilt, Johnny.

    And I don't know who that woman is with him. I've never seen her before.

  5. I'm excited for anything by ONJ, but Travolta? He could barely sing when he was young....

  6. With all the money John Travolta has why does he not buy a better hair weave ? He looks ridiculous.

  7. Come on guys we haven't had anything THIS campy in YEARS... I can't wait. At least this means he's coming out of the closet, right?

  8. The stars of Grease reunite!

    Props to Ms. Newton-John, breast cancer survivor and star of one of gayest music videos ever, Physical (Let's Get).

    I'll pass on the album, though. Never did think Mr. Travolta was much of a singer.

  10. Men:

    When will men and women realize that skin tones changes as we grow older. Hair naturally lightens as we get older. Any attempt to darken your hair is easy to see. Just look as his hair color and his skin tone. They don't match. Seriously. He's in the public eye. Who are his advisors.

  11. Think he just came out. He's holding a tea cup instead of a coffee mug. Huge message.

  12. As a long time Olivia fan (i.e., before "Grease"), I'm not sure what to make of this collaboration. But for those interested in a unique Christmas CD sans Travolta, I recommend 2007's "Christmas Wish."
