Arnold Schwarzenegger was due to make an appearance at the official opening of the Universal Studios Singapore on 28 May 2011. However, as a result of his (impending) divorce with Maria Shriver over his infidelity and illegitimate child, he has decided to pull out of the appearance. There was no word if he’ll be back.
Paula Abdul has been
rumoured/named to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger but I haven’t seen any confirmation anywhere. It’s an odd replacement if you ask me. Universal Studios has been movie centric and how relevant is Paula Abdul with movies? (Well, she has a few movies but still…)
Jet Li and Maggie Cheung are the other stars who are confirmed to make an appearance at the opening. Surprised that Gong Li isn’t on the list.

[UPDATED ON 24 MAY 2011] Fantasia Barino has just been confirmed to make an appearance at the Universal Studios Singapore opening as well.
