This Week's Biggest Losers 11/04/06

11/3/2006 3:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Today's Z-lister may well be tomorrow's gold standard. Just ask Mel Gibson and Kate Moss, who were honored this week, respectively, by the Latin Business Association and British Fashion Awards.
princePrince: What's next? The Mirage poaching another famous Jehovah's Witness to resurrect its one-time marquee attraction as "Siegfried and Michael"? At the very least, Prince may need to adopt "???" as his new symbol. The idea that the diminutive 48-year-old pop star will, starting next weekend, be headlining as a Friday-Saturday Vegas regular at the all-suites Rio Hotel and Casino is about as logical as Marilyn Manson happily taking part in an episode of Trading Spaces. And if you're planning on shouting out a request for "Dirty Mind" classics like "Sister" (about incest) or "Head" (about... you know), save your money for the "When Doves Cry" slots.


kayne west Kanye West: In the December issue of Playboy, Dixie Chick Natalie Maines hails the rapper as "brave" for his now famous calling out of George Bush on NBC's post-Hurricane Katrina TV fundraiser. But it's time to stop the presses after Kanye took his politics in a different direction at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Storming the stage after Justice and Simian won for Best Video, KW boo-hooed that he should have won because his entry, "Touch the Sky," cost a million dollars, featured Pam Anderson and had him jumping across canyons. Yeah, we're sure all those folks in New Orleans who have neither trophies nor mantelpiece are hurting for you.

bill gatesBill Gates:
You're the richest man in the freakin' world, but you won't dip into the Seattle cookie jar for the dollars Microsoft needs to bring Halo to the big screen? Look, it's not like we're asking you to bankroll Marie Antoinette. And think of the cross-promotional opportunities: a sneak peek "Halo" screensaver bundled with Windows 2008, a tongue-in-cheek YouTube trailer spoof in which your mighty protagonist whimpers "You had me at Halo..." As far as we're concerned, charity begins at home, and by not stepping in when Fox and Universal stepped out, you needlessly left good guy Peter Jackson hanging.matthew perry

Matthew Perry: Chandler has been reborn as a chick magnet, but it may not be enough to save Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Despite an order of three more episodes, and an early slot on the schedule for this winter's upcoming Television Critics Association Press Tour, rumors are swirling that cost-cutting NBC is about to pull the plug on this expensive ratings disappointment. Too bad, because we've witnessed first-hand how a room full of real-life Hollywood TV writers can take hilarious chunks out of the grandiose inaccuracy of Sorkin's deluded dud, and frankly, we're going to miss that water cooler fun.

bob sagetBob Saget: He was hilariously foul-mouthed in The Aristocrats and true to wink-wink form in Entourage. But his grand opus Farce of the Penguins, which he wrote, directed, produced and co-voices, has been unceremoniously dumped by ThinkFIlm from the Happy Feet theatrical schedule in favor of a straight-to-DVD January 2007 release. This, despite Samuel L. Jackson's parody version of Morgan Freeman's March of the Penguins dulcet narration, and the additional voice participation of folks such as Jason Biggs, Jon Lovitz, Norm MacDonald and Saget's old Full House pals, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. The tag line reads, 'What Happens In Antarctica... Stays in Antarctica', but the days when Saget could engender global warming are long gone.

how is Prince a loser by setting up shop in Vegas? U certainly cannot call him a loser 4 getting a Vegas hotspot? As far as him being washed up goes, u people at TMZ.com need 2 get ur minds right. He has pioneered so much of Modern music and continues 2 make music that is so innovative and against the grain of what everyone else does that the talentless celebs that u spend ur time watchin cannot get on his level. The people at TMZ.com spend their time watching Nicole Richie eat a bean and making comments about it. Those are the real losers.

The Artist Formerly Know as Popular - Wow, a lounge act in Vegas. What's next, a reality show about picking up his dry cleaning.

Kanye West - Biggest Loser of the week hardly begin to describe it. I guess if he can;t get any press as a singer (if that's what you call it) at least he got press as a an a**hole.

Bill Gates - A loser of the week? The guy probably sh*ts rolls of $100 bills.

Matthew Perry - Although Studio 60 is rather pretentious in a look-how-much-smarter-we-are kind of way, I still kinda like it. Once it is cancelled I can stop flipping back and forth between it and the football game.

Bob Saget - Who cares. Yeah I guess that makes him a loser.

If Prince had any real talent he would not have to continuously surround himself by adoring girls on stage to fuel his ego. The real greats like Sinatra did not need purple suits, flashy shows, silly props or robotic girls on stage to surround him. The test of true talent/genius is a mike and a voice...all the rest is unnecessary.

I would go to Vegas to see the Pree-once (Prince) perform!! I LOVE it when SNL does skits mocking him--even better, when he is the musical guest on the same show. See, even Pree-once(Prince) has a sense of humor! If he gets a gig in Vegas, he will be laughing all the way to the bank!
