The new People magazine, out this Friday, reveals Bullock’s new roles of mother and soon-to-be single lady. That’s right! There are some new changes for the The Blind Side‘s leading lady. She now has a child and a will be filing for divorce.
On the cover of the magazine shows Bullock with her adopted 3 1/2-year-old son, Louis Bardot Bullock, who was born in New Orleans.
It took a four-year adoption process in order to receive Louis, whom she named after Louis Armstrong, since the song “What a Wonderful World,” played in her head the moment she saw him.
This adoption was actually inspired by James’ daughter, Sunny. However, she will be adopting Louis as a single parent, due to her recent decision to finalize plans to divorce from ex-husband, Jesse James.
Before she had recorded a note of her debut album, Lolene had already chosen its inspired title: The Electrick Hotel. “I call it The Electrick Hotel because when you put the album on, you’re my guest. I’m going to take care of you,” says the British singer, songwriter, and performer. “You’re invited to come and stay a while in my world, which I see as like a hotel where each song is a room that captures a different part of my personality and expresses different emotions. So if you’re feeling happy, you can go to the penthouse and dance to ‘Sexy People.’ If you’re heartbroken, you can visit the first-floor and have a cry to ‘Beautiful Disaster.’”
The concept, as well as the album’s giddy, whirling electro-pop sound dovetails perfectly with Lolene’s fierce, can-do attitude and positive spirit. The first single, “Rich (Fake It Til You Make It)” is “about living your life like you’ve already made it even if you haven’t got a penny to your name,” Lolene says, while “Sexy People” (Lolene’s debut club single that reached No. 5 on the Billboard Dance chart) insists that everyone has something sexy about them, “whether it’s your little toe or a strand of hair,” she says. “I wrote these songs at a time when everyone was miserable because of the recession. I wanted to come up with something fun and colorful that made people feel good.” Lolene shows a more vulnerable side on the thoughtful break-up ballad “Beautiful Disaster,” and the Euro pop-tinged love song “Lion Heart,” which is about having a brave and fearless attitude toward love. And then there’s the Nellee Hooper-produced “Ordinary Girl,” which could be Lolene’s mission statement with the following lyrics: “I’ll never be ordinary / Weird and wonderful / Strange is beautiful / I’ll never be an ordinary girl.”
Watch Lolene check in to The Electrick Hotel in this first look at her Capitol Records debut. The brand new trailer features audio clips of “Rich (Fake it Til You Make It),” “Lionheart,” and “Ordinary Girl” from the forthcoming release. Stay tuned for the The Electrick Hotel coming this summer.

Jersey Shore brought poofs, fist-pumping and GTL (gym, tan, laundry) into the limelight. Several cast members made names like “The Situation,” and “Snooki” familiar and popular to those who watched.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was quite a character herself. She always rocked a poof, did back flips in dance clubs, ate pickles in an interesting fashion and obsessed about finding the perfect guido.
She was on the hunt to find her mate in Seaside during season one of the Jersey Shore. Although she left the shore without a “juiced-up gorilla,” she found love through another popular medium: the internet.
