Wiz Khalifa continues to make Pittsburgh proud!

The rapper has been nominated for 2 Grammy Awards at tonight’s 54th Annual Grammys  in the categories of Best Performance and Best Rap Song.

Here is a video of a backstage interview with Wiz, and a photo, below, from a pre-Grammy gala.

Also, Wexford’s own Grammy award winner (and judge on “The Voice”) Christina Aguilera was nominated with Maroon 5 for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the single “Moves Like Jagger.”

Tom Cruise and American Idol in Pittsburgh!

5 Oct

Tom Cruise is in Pittsburgh filming his upcoming movie, One Shot. (Fun fact? He follows @Glitzburgh on Twitter and also gave us a shout-out one day last week!)

Anyway….when Cruise and wife, actress Katie Holmes, and their daughter, Suri, weren’t busy enjoying the Milkshake Factory or Soergel’s Orchard & Farm in Wexford, they were likely taking in all that Pittsburgh has to offer.

Recently, Werner Herzog was cast to play opposite Tom Cruise in “One Shot,” as the movie’s villain, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for him around the city, too.

Last week also found celebrities Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and Ryan Seacrest in town. They were here judging American Idol auditions at the Convention Center and also held a press conference. (From all accounts, J.Lo is STUNNING in person!)

Tell us: have you had any celebrity sightings here in “Glitzburgh” lately?

PS: Tom Cruise’s film One Shot is now casting!! If you are interested, contact Nancy Mosser Casting for more information. Call 412-621-1160 if you are interested in being an extra this weekend and next week.
