It's been a busy week on the news feeds -- thanks in part to the many, many gizmos dropping trou at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. With gadgets of every shape and size making their world debuts, most celebrities (apart from Lady Gaga) have had a hard time fighting their way into the headlines, but we've found a few:
• Thursday night was 12th Night, which is officially the last day of Christmas (the 12th day, in fact), so maybe we're not too late in posting this shot of Keanu Reeves, strapping a last-minute Christmas tree to the top of his Porsche 911. Now, on to Carnival! [h/t John]
• Don't stop believin' (in the power of celebrity car auctions): Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain has put his 2010 Ford Mustang up for bid. Added bonus: the car comes with a collection of signed CDs. We assume they're from Journey, but we suppose you never know.
• Alyssa Milano is such a devout eco-enthusiast that she's placed orders for a 2011 Chevrolet Volt and a 2011 Nissan Leaf. Which is great -- we love the green, too -- but her rationale seems a little weird: she's quoted as saying, "I never wanted my kids to see me pumping gas at a gas station." Sounds like a jab at Paris to us. Or AnnaLynne McCord. Or Kim Kardashian. Or...well, who cares? Let's just call it "uppity". [h/t John]
• We told you last week that Larry Fishburne was the new voice of Cadillac. Now, there's proof:
You have to admit, Fishy's voice is kind of amazing. (Though perhaps not as amazing as certain homeless people.) But if Caddy's marketing peeps were really on their game, they'd have him ask viewers if they want a red one or a blue one.
