LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Justin Timberlake's single 'SexyBack' makes men feel gay.

Hip-hop producer Timbaland, who duets with Justin on the worldwide hit, thinks the
song can make a straight man question his sexuality.

Timbaland told Blender
magazine: "Some people listen to a song like 'SexyBack' and think, am I queer? Am I funny? If you are that way, you're just that way. But if you're a masculine man, embrace it. Have a glass of wine, put the record on and invite your girl over to get sexy."

er, one man who won't be having sex to the song is its creator, Justin.

The pop superstar - who is dating actress
Cameron Diaz - recently confessed he is unable to make love if music is playing because he gets distracted by the melodie

Justin, who previously dated
Britney Spears, said: "I have trouble having sex to music because I'll start picking out the chords."

Yo soy Betty la renovada

Ugly Betty gets a full season
First comedy of the new season to get nod of confidence from network.

ABC thinks Ugly Betty looks just fine.

The Salma Hayek-produced comedy, which is based on a Colombian telenovela, has been picked up for a full season by the net. Betty has averaged 15.3 million viewers a week.

Ugly Betty has improved the time period for ABC by almost 100 percent in total viewers over the same period last year--from 7.8 million to 15.3 million. Combined with Grey's Anatomy, the show has helped ABC take on the CBS Thursday-night ratings block of Survivor and CSI.

Ugly Betty is based on Yo Soy Betty La Fea, a Colombian telenovela that has been translated into 30 languages. Betty stars America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, a perky young woman who goes to work at fashion magazine Mode. Once there, she deals with prissy models, cutthroat coworkers, and her hapless boss.

"In just two weeks, Ugly Betty has given us an impressive foothold leading into the Grey's Anatomy hour on Thursday night," said ABC president Stephen McPherson. "The show has proven to be competitive in a very strong time period, and we're thrilled with Ugly Betty's performance."

Ugly Betty is the third new season show to get picked up. Last week, NBC picked up sci-fi drama Heroes for a full season, and yesterday CBS gave the full-season go-ahead to nuclear drama Jericho.

PETA Takes Over Jean-Paul Gaultier Boutique in Paris
Shoppers walking by designer Jean-Paul Gaultier’s Paris boutique got an eyeful when PETA activists stormed the shop’s display windows, smearing the glass with red “blood” and waving signs reading, “Death for Sale,” in a protest against Gaultier’s use of fur. The demo was timed to coincide with Paris’ Fashion Week.

The Gaultier boutique takeover was the latest in a string of actions aimed at designers who have refused to stop using fur. During Milan's Fashion Week last week, PETA activists took over the runways of the Burberry and Roberto Cavalli fashion shows. PETA activists have previously stormed the shop window of Dolce & Gabbana and taken over the catwalks of fur designers Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, and Prada, among others.

More Sara Evans details

Sara Evans vs. Craig Schelske: Sexual Details
By Cris Bergman
Oct 14, 2006

Sara Evans was very detailed in her divorce filings about her husband Craig Schelske. By now, most of country music and fans of Sara Evans from the ABC Reality show 'Dancing with the Stars' were shocked to read what she is accusing her husband of thirteen years, Craig Schelske of doing online, in person and in front of the TV.

The accusations range from adulterous affairs, pictures of him in those affairs, Internet ads asking for three-way and anal sex and being caught by one of his children watching porn on TV. It has all of the basic ick factor and may observers and some legal experts are asking why so much detail?


The Tennessean newspaper points this out and gives this item.

"It is generally unusual to get very detailed," prominent divorce attorney Rose Palermo said. "Typically, even if you are charging inappropriate conduct, you wouldn't generally specify what the grounds or specifics are. My philosophy is you try to hold something back to bargain with at a later date."

Evans' attorney, John Hollins Jr., would not comment on the filing. However, speculation in the legal community is that the decision to include the highly personal information was made in part because the filing requested restraining orders, temporary custody of the children and an order that would prohibit him from taking the children to Oregon.

Lawyers say that information may have been necessary for the judge to grant the temporary custody and restraining orders.


Sara claims that her soon-to-be-ex had an affair with the former nanny to their three children; kept photos on his computer of himself having sex with other women; was discovered by one of their children watching pornography on TV; forbade a Dancing with the Stars stylist from entering their home, declaring the man was a “sodomite”; and often threatened her, among other charges.

According to the document filed in chancery court, Schelske allegedly has on his computer at least 100 photographs of himself posing in an aroused state. There are several photographs of him having sex with other women, the filings stated.


“On his computers, husband maintains ‘Craigs Lists.’ Many of them involve requests for three party sex and anal sex. Husband’s ‘Craigs Lists’ are composed of personal ads on his personal sex engine involving him and prospective sex partners,” the documents stated.

The court document included an exhibit of nine recent “Craigs Lists’’ items stored in the temporary files of his computers.


Schelske denied the accusations in a statement.

"I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisers are currently waging," he says.

"I adamantly deny the allegations that are being made. As distressing as it is to have to communicate about this matter publicly, Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed," he continues.

"The best I can do at this difficult time is ask that people of faith would pray for her and for my family."


This may get very ugly.

Assuming it's all true, there's no way she just found out about this kind of behavior -- so I have to ask myself why she waited. :shrug:

DJ Premier better RECOGNIZE!@

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After co-producing one of the top pop albums of the year, Christina Aguilera's "Back to Basics," DJ Premier is back in the studio honing projects by Nas, Amerie and Canibus, and close to securing production work on Whitney Houston's upcoming comeback disc.

Premier says he is most looking forward to working with Houston, who reunited with Arista/J head Clive Davis recently to start planning her first new studio album in four years. "I'm not gonna jinx it but there [have] been talks and I've met with the right people so if that goes down I'd love to give her a big record," Premier tells Billboard.com. "I know what she needs. I'm not gonna give her a record about rolling on dubs and all that just because that's what's current. That's beneath her. She can go left field as long as the record's banging and she sings it well."

In recent years, Houston has battled drug addiction and last month filed for divorce from singer Bobby Brown, her husband of 14 years. Premier thinks the long-subdued pop star can make a grand reentrance. "She deserves another chance," he says. "I won't misguide her career and give her some bulls**t [track]."

R. Kelly Hearing Postponed

According to SOHH.com:

As a trial date seemingly loomed closer, the hearing for R&B superstar R.Kelly has once again been pushed back.

In opposition to published media accounts, a hearing for Kelly's trial was scheduled for October 13 (not his actual trial). Yet according to the Cook County State's Attorney's office, the date has been rescheduled for October 27th.

The hearing will consist of pre-trial motions and a final date for the actual trial could be set during the proceedings.

As previously reported by SOHH, the singer is facing 14 counts of child pornography, stemming from a video tape released in February of 2002 by an unknown source, that was sent to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The clip allegedly shows the crooner engaging in sex with an underage female. The female in the video is allegedly the then 14 year-old niece of Sparkle, one of the singer's former artists and protégés.

Since his arrest, Kelly has vigorously denied that the man in the video is actually him. The suspected victim and her parents have also publicly denied that she is the person on the tape.

The tape, which was widely bootlegged and made available to the public, furthered wide spread debate on whether or not the man in the video was indeed Kelly.
