Gimme Five: Things The Slumdog Millionaire Kids Should Do Instead Of Going Back To India

APTOPIX Oscars Arrivals Now that those adorable kids from Slumdog Millionaire have gotten a chance to attend the Academy Awards and even Disneyland, it's time they start thinking about their next career move -after all they're not the ones who get to take home those eight Oscars! Blindie has five suggestions for Hollywood's new "it kids" -Tanay Hermant Chheda, Tanvi Ganesh Lonkar, Ashutosh Lobo Gajiwalan, Rubiana Ali, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail Sheik and Ayush Mahesh Khedekar -and it doesn't include returning to the slums of India:

  1. Form a band. They could be the Indian version of the Naked Brothers Band or a Desi Jackson Five -plus one!
  2. Star in their own Nickelodeon sitcom. Come on, six little Indian kids speaking broken English is sure to get some laughs. Throw in Ryan Seacrest as their wise-cracking adoptive dad and now you're talking Emmy!
  3. Star in a big budget Hollywood film. Call up Robert Rodriguez, we've found the next Spy Kids! And they could probably do their own stunts.
  4. Start their own fashion line. Considering most of America's retail clothing is manufactured overseas, most likely with Slumdog-like child labor, the kids mind as well be in charge of their own label.
  5. Work at Disneyland. We heard the kids had a blast at Mickey's hometown and since they did so well entertaining on the streets of Mumbai, so they're sure to be a crowd pleaser in the It's a Small World ride.

GIMME FIVE: A List of Icons, Legends & Greats According to Kanye West’s Quotes

With the recent news about Chris Brown and Rihanna's domestic abuse drama, Kanye West spoke out in support of his former tour mate. Not only did he call Rihanna "my baby sis," but the Grammy-winning rapper and producer went as far as calling her "the most important artist in music." And while we're on West's loose flattery, Blindie compiled a list of his prior hyperbole relating to his musical peers: Kanye West on Beyoncé in December 2008: "Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyoncé is a f***ing living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner." Kanye West on Justin Timberlake in August 2007: "My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake. He's the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level -- black radio, white radio...We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day." Kanye West on frenemy 50 Cent in January 2009: "50 is one of those rappers that I said was the end all be all of what rap what supposed to be. Like a true iconic rapper." Kanye West on Rihanna in February 2009: "Rihanna is so important to our culture, to pop music. I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age ... she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time." Kanye West on Kanye West in November 2008: "I want to be Elvis," he said during an acceptance speech at the American Music Awards. But days later he clarified, "I really should have thought that out more because that statement was actually really incorrect. Actually, the true statement was 'I want to be better than Elvis.'"

GIMME FIVE: The Most Stunning Bitchy-Faced Beauties in Film & Fashion

Some women are better equipped to play femme fatales, while others are just boring girls next door. And Blindie must confess that we find the bad girls more entertaining to watch. The following women, although amazingly stunning, have what Blindie likes to call "Bitchy Face," a fierce look that no matter how much effort they put into trying to soften their face, they can't help but to look like a bitch. Here are our top five bitchy-faced stunners: Megan Fox: From playing Lindsay Lohan's nemesis in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen to licking her glossy lips with a bikini top on the cover of GQ, "baby Angelina"---what Blindie likes to call her---definitely has the fiercest bitchy face we've seen in years. AnnaLynne McCord: From raising havoc on Nip/Tuck to kicking around little Kansas Annie on 90210, the curly-haired beauty can only play bad girls with a face like that. Jourdan Dunn: This stunning catwalker probably has the fiercest look since Linda Evangelista and has been compared to phone-slinging supermodel Naomi Campbell. Gong Li: No one has manipulated men on film with her beauty like Chinese A-Lister Gong Li. This raven-haired China doll is beyond gorgeous--and was arguably the only good nugget in Memoirs of a Geisha. Angelina Jolie: Before globe-trotting with her ever-growing brood, the most famous woman on the planet can only play strong women because a bitchy face like that can't play soft. She's portrayed a psychotic mental patient, a drug addict supermodel, and the fiercest video game heroine in history.

GIMME FIVE: Actresses Who Should Replace Beyonce in Eartha Kitt Biopic

As previously reported, pop diva Beyonce Knowles will portray Eartha Kitt in a recently greenlit biopic of the late singer's life. Kitt, who died on Christmas day at age 81, expressed her disapproval of the "Bootylicious" singer's casting in her life story. "I do not think I have quite the derriere of Beyonce," she said. And we believe such a legend deserves a real actress with real talent beyond singing. Here are Blindie's top five actresses who can do Miss Earth Kitt justice: Thandie Newton She was cheated in casting last year when Angelina Jolie was cast as Mariane Pearl in A Mighty Heart ---a role Blindie felt was a match-made for the Brit talent. But Kitt could earn Newton a call from Oscar Taraji P. Henson She's gaining critical acclaim and a SAG award nomination for her role opposite Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Although she consistently supports leading men, we think she would be a strong choice as Kitt. Halle Berry She definitely did Dorothy Dandridge justice on cable TV....plus Kitt herself said, "Give me Halle Berry instead!" Robin Givens We should follow up her film comeback in Tyler Perry's A Family That Preys with a hefty role as the purring singer-actress. Plus, with Berry, she starred with Kitt opposite Eddie Murphy in 1992's Boomerang! Zoe Saldana Having seen her be the "girl-to-get" in many flicks, it's time that Star Trek's Uhura tests her acting chops with a heftier role. Maybe she could pull a Marion Cotillard--who nabbed the Oscar playing much-older legend Edith Piaf.
