Samples from new Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack

So remember when it was announced Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco and a bunch of other artists were contributing covers of the songs from Nightmare Before Christmas to the new 2-disk soundtrack? You can now hear Fall Out Boy's version of What's This? and Panic! At the Disco's version of This Is Halloween.

I personally think the Fall Out Boy cover is GOD AWFUL and P!AtD's cover isn't much better.

Runaway axed
CW show becomes second corpse of the new season.

Project Runaway is over.

The CW has pulled the plug on the action drama series, which had struggled in the ratings since its premiere four weeks ago. The show is the second cancellation of the new season--the first being CBS's Smith--and one of the two new shows CW had brought to the air (the other being Girlfriends spin-off The Game).

Runaway, which starred Donnie Wahlberg as a man whose family must go on the run after he is falsely accused of murder, averaged 1.8 million weekly viewers. CW will fill the time slot with repeats until further notice.

Last week, the network flip-flopped 7th Heaven and Runaway from their Monday night berths to Sunday, and moved the Sunday comedy block of Everybody Hates Chris, All of Us, Girlfriends, and The Game--all of which had abysmal premieres three weeks ago--to Monday. The move paid off for the comedies this week, with the shows gaining 15 percent from the week before.

Smith and Runaway are the only official cancellations of the new season, but several others have been put on hiatus or not been renewed. Fox sitcoms 'Til Death and Happy Hour were pulled until November, and NBC's Kidnapped was shuffled to Saturday and will wrap production after its 13th episode is filmed.

The fledgling CW network--home to Veronica Mars, Smallville, and America's Next Top Model--is about equal in viewers to where The WB and UPN, from which the CW arose, were last year. CW president Dawn Ostroff said last week the Net is still trying to inform people on which new CW stations they can find their favorite UPN and WB shows.

Rapper Slick Rick battles deportation.

Federal officials want him out of U.S. for a crime committed 16 years ago.


Rapper Ricky “Slick Rick” Walters is a married man, a father of two, a taxpayer. Across the last decade, he’s earned another distinction: the focus of a long-running legal fight with federal officials who want him deported for a crime committed 16 years ago.

Walters, the eye-patch wearing star behind the ‘80s rap classic “La-Di-Da-Di,” thought he was headed for victory in his immigration case after a federal judge’s 2003 ruling sprung him from a Florida detention facility after 17 months.

But Homeland Security officials, in a move that Walters’ supporters said was overzealous, pressed forward with the case — and a September federal appeals court ruling in the government’s favor led the rapper to wonder how long his past will affect his future.

Mischa in UK Vogue & She Said She Wants A Normal Guy!

The actress, who has dated musician Cisco Alda and Brandon Davis in the past, said: "I have dated actors and I have to say it's a very odd experience.

"It's a little unsettling to be with someone who cares about how they look as much as you do."
The pretty actress does have a checklist of qualities that any suitor would have to live up to.

She added: "I would have to have a guy with humour and a sense that they are comfortable with themselves."

She Should Just Model! Mischa is very photogenic.

Panic! At the Disco declare emo is "BULLSHIT"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In a recent discussion with NME, Panic! At the Disco frontman Brendan Uriem cleared any confusion pertaining to his feelings on the genre known as "emo", or how the label is associated with his band.

"It's ignorant! The stereotype is guys that are weak and have failing relationships write about how sad they are. If you listen to our songs, not one of them has that tone. Emo is bullshit! If people want to take it for the literal sense of the word, yes we're an emotional band, we put a lot of thought into what we do. People always try to stereotype us, but we don't fit the emo stereotype."

Borat honoured in Germany

By Scott Roxborough

COLOGNE, Germany (Hollywood Reporter) - He might be persona non grata in Kazakhstan, but Borat -- the crazed Central Asian TV reporter created by comic Sacha Baron Cohen -- is a hero to the German comedy scene.

Baron Cohen, in his Borat guise, won the best international comedian prize at the sixth annual German Comedy Awards on Friday in Cologne.

"Good evening gentlemen and prostitutes," Baron Cohen said to the crowd. "I love Germany. I love sex."

With his misogynistic and racist comments, Borat has been a source of controversy -- both in Kazakhstan and in the U.S.

"Most German comedy is fairly tame in comparison, and there was some worry that people would be offended," said Holger Hoffmann, executive producer of the awards show. "But we held out. For German comedians, Borat is a revelation. It actually transcends comedy to become social and political commentary."

Baron Cohen, whose theatrical feature "Borat" opens in Germany November 2, certainly didn't clean up his act for the awards ceremony.

"I will put this prize next to the only other one I won," Baron Cohen said. "From Central Asian Olympic Committee. For hitting gypsy with rock at 50 meters."

Stingray leaps into boat, stabs man in chest

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

MIAMI, Florida (Reuters) -- A leaping stingray stabbed an 81-year-old Florida boater in the chest, authorities said Wednesday, leaving its poisonous stinger lodged close to his heart in an incident recalling the one that killed Australian TV naturalist Steve Irwin last month.

Fire Department officials in Lighthouse Point, about 30 miles north of Miami, said James Bertakis was in a small recreational boat with two grandchildren Tuesday when the spotted eagle ray leaped aboard and struck him.

"It's just a real freak thing," Lt. Mike Sullivan told Reuters, saying the incident occurred on Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, where stingrays are rarely seen leaping in the air.

"For an 81-year-old man he's in really good shape," Sullivan added, saying Bertakis was expected to make a full recovery after surgery at a local hospital to have the stinger removed from his chest.

"Crocodile Hunter" Irwin, 44, died when a stingray's stinger punctured his heart off Australia's north coast last month. It was one of only a handful of stingray fatalities on record.

O.J. Simpson to confess — hypothetically


O.J. Simpson is confessing. Hypothetically, that is.

The former football great, who was acquitted in criminal court 11 years ago of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, reportedly has been paid a whopping $3.5 million to write about the double murder that shocked and riveted the nation in 1994, according to a detailed report in the new National Enquirer.

But Simpson is not actually confessing to the murder — rather, he’s writing a “hypothetical” book — which the Enquirer reports is tentatively being called “If I Did It.”

The early part of the book tells how Simpson fell in love with Nicole and how the marriage collapsed, reports the tab. He goes on, according to the article, to describe in gruesome detail the killing of his ex-wife and Goldman; he stipulates that the murder scenes are “hypothetical.” But, notes the tab, the descriptions are “so detailed and so chillingly realistic” that readers are left with little doubt as to what really happened.

Simpson can never be retried for the murders because of double jeopardy laws, according to the Enquirer, which also claims that Simpson aims to keep any book money instead of paying it out in a civil suit judgment against him by spending it all quickly.

Thanks for the TMI, Diddy!



Diddy has confessed to being obsessed with group sex in champagne-filled baths when he was a bachelor.

The rapper, whose long-term girlfriend Kim Porter is pregnant with twin girls, indulged in all his most wild fantasies when he was single, and admits his fetish for food-based sex and multiple partners spiralled out of control.

He said in an interview with Vibe magazine: "I'm nasty. In the mid-'90s I was buck-f***ing wild - beyond ménage à trois. It's crazy, you're twenty-something and renting the presidential suite at the Hotel Nikko in Beverly Hills. You got the bathtub filled with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Then sex became dangerous."

Diddy, real name Sean Combs, insists he has now turned his back on his wild ways and it is now love of his life Kim who is reaping the benefits of his earlier sexual experiences.

He added: "All that energy you were spreading becomes a one-on-one thing. My girl right now is very happy. As meticulous as I am with my work, I'm even more meticulous with my lovemaking. I like to do it for a long time. Sometimes I'm making love and she's like, 'You gonna save some for the honeymoon?'"

Paris' Movie Is A Flop



Parasite Hilton's sex tape sold around 700,000 copies. Her debut album didn't even sell half of that, I'm not sure it even sold a third of that. So, it's no surprise that her latest film is turning out to be a joke as well. National Lampoon's Pledge This! centers around a sorority president at fictional South Beach University. That's basically it. The movie also stars Simon Rex who is also no stranger to sex tapes.

DIDDY'S "PRESS PLAY" GETS GREAT PRESS PLAY:

NEW ALBUM GATHERS CRITICAL ACCLAIM

        "PRESS PLAY," Diddy's first solo project in five years, has been garnering widespread critical acclaim.  The collection, which arrived in stores this week, finds the Bad Boy founder and recording artist joined in the studio by a hand-picked cast of modern artists and groundbreaking producers.  The result is a cutting-edge collection that brings together a captivating range of sounds and voices in an album defined by depth and diversity. 

        In its 4-star rave review, the New York Post proclaims, "Musically, there isn't a dud on the 19-track disc...  The CD takes wild and welcome swings between Diddy's raps, vocals by an all-star roster of R&B and pop singers, and innovative beats designed by an equally elite squad of producers."  The review goes on to call "PRESS PLAY" "an exciting listen" marked by "diversity and innovation."

        Entertainment Weekly hails "PRESS PLAY" as "the year's best-produced album," while the Washington Post calls it "perhaps Diddy's best since his 1997 debut... Everything on this album is big.  Big fanfares, big drums, big sounds... the ideas are bigger... His acute ear and rich sonic vocabulary serve him well throughout 'Press Play.'" Newsday predicts that "PRESS PLAY" will "spawn hit singles deep into next year," and AOL Music raves that the album is "the most danceable hip-hop record in years!  With Diddy's classic and unique sound, 'Press Play' will be an undeniable force on today's music scene."

        Allhiphop.com also awarded "PRESS PLAY" four stars, noting that "The album solidifies the return of Bad Boy Entertainment and represents a new age for the hip-hop mogul."  VIBE magazine Editor-In-Chief Danyel Smith comments, "With 'Press Play,' Sean Combs continues to take risks and to innovate.  But most importantly, Diddy makes us tilt our heads towards the speakers and dance, dance, dance."  Billboard Executive Editor/Associate Publisher Tamara Conniff says, "Diddy has once again defined a genre.  This is hip-hop soul."

Funeral for Anna Nicole Smith son

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) -- In a ceremony punctuated by screams and cries, reality TV star Anna Nicole Smith attended the funeral of her son on Thursday, nearly six weeks after he mysteriously died while visiting her in the hospital where she had given birth to a daughter.

A gold-colored hearse brought the body of 20-year-old Daniel Smith to the cemetery. The mahogany casket was whisked inside a large green tent for the service. Wailing and screaming was heard from inside the tent.

"The only thing I can tell you is it's going (on) now," Deborah Cartwright of Lakeview Memorial Gardens & Mausoleums, the cemetery in Nassau, told The Associated Press.

The 38-year-old former Playboy playmate, who gave birth to a daughter three days before her son died at her hospital beside, attended the service, said Loretta Butler-Turner, director of the funeral home hired by the family. Three white limousines followed the hearse to the cemetery. Baptist Bishop Neil Ellis conducted the service, Butler-Turner said.

At least six police officers guarded the main entrance to the cemetery, barring everyone except for invited guests. Other officers in uniform and plain clothes stood outside the tent. A small crowd of Bahamian onlookers gathered just outside the cemetery.

Daniel Smith died the morning of September 10 after spending the night at the hospital with his mother and newborn half-sister. An American pathologist hired by Anna Nicole Smith has said Daniel Smith died from a lethal combination of methadone and two antidepressants.

Bahamas Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez said Thursday that police had not yet submitted a report on their investigation. Authorities will evaluate that report and the Bahamian pathologist's conclusions to determine whether a jury inquest is necessary. Official toxicology results have not been publicly released.

Makers of "Ace of Spades" Champagne Embrace Jay-Z


Ace of Spades


Jay turning down Cristal

Armand de Brignac (also known as "Ace of Spades" or "Gold Bottles"), the high-end champagne featured in Jay-Z's new video for "Show Me What You Got," is making its debut in the U.S. this year. Armand, manufactured in France, is being imported into North America for distribution by the Manhattan-based company of the same name.

      Even though, the company did not enter into any official agreement to place the product in Jay-Z's video, Armand CEO/President Brett Berish was quick to express his enthusiasm. "We're delighted to have someone of Jay-Z's stature include Armand de Brignac in the first video for his new album," said Brett Berish in a press statement. "Jay-Z has always demonstrated the highest standards and finest taste, and we're honored to see Armand make an appearance in "Show Me What You Got." Armand's unmatched taste and package are a perfect fit for the video."

     The video reaffirms Jay-Z's decision to boycott Louis Rodere Cristal brand of champagne back in June, following some disparaging comments by Cristal boss Frédéric Rouzaud. In the video for "Show Me What You Got," Jay-Z is offered a bottle of Cristal, a brand he had endorsed on previous songs and videos. Jay motions for the bottle to be sent back, and a waiter returns with a silver briefcase. It's opened to reveal the Armand de Brignac gold bottle.
