Is Kevin just doing it for the LULZ now?

Britney's Former Rehab Facility Subpoenaed in Custody Fight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While Kevin Federline parties in Vegas, his defense team has struck again, delivering a subpoena to the rehabilitation facility attended by his ex Britney Spears.

According to a source familiar with the proceedings, Promises Treatment Center was served with a subpoena Saturday morning. This is the fourth subpoena doled out by the Federline team in the singer's increasingly high-profile custody battle. (Earlier in the week, Spears's former assistant Shannon Funk, bodyguard Daimon Shippen and pal Alli Sims were all served with legal papers.)

"Kevin and his attorneys Mark Vincent Kaplan and James Simon are on a mission," says the source. "They are pursuing all relevant evidence from every potential source and every available witness."

A spokesperson from Promises refused to comment, saying: "This is a confidential facility and we cannot comment."

The pop star spent a month at Promises and was released on March 21. Her manager at the time said she was "successfully" released.

According to Pepperdine University Law Professor Steven M. Cron, the Federline camp is clearly seeing how Spears took to the Promises stint.

"Strategically I don't think they are concerned with the treatment, but how she responded to that treatment," says Cron. "Specifically, if she participated as she was supposed to. Did she have a positive attitude, did she complete it successfully. Or was she a screw up?"

Justice League screenplay finished, begins filming next year?



Our friends at IESB are reporting that a screenplay for the proposed Justice League of America movie is finished, and has been warmly received at Warner Bros. I always believed that the film wouldn’t happen until the Superman and Batman franchises started to die down.

My theory being: why waste two superheros in one movie when you could make double the money with two films. Well it seems like I, like most others might have overlooked the benefit of such a film. Apparently the studio is envisioning the film as a lunching pad for other superhero offshoot films such as The Flash, Wonder Woman, The Green Lantern and Aquaman. And the film is suposedly being fast tracked into production.

But what about Superman and Batman? Both Christian Bale and Brandon Routh have contract stipulations which include an option for a third “ensemble” movie. And I don’t believe that a JLA film could be done without both of the leading DC superheroes included. And I don’t think that Christopher Nolan would give up on a third Batman film to lend Bale over for JLA. And what about Bryan Singer’s The Man of Steel? Singer’s camp has insisted that Man of Steel will be filmed next. Could that be pushed back to accommodate a JLA film? Maybe?

There are so many ifs, buts, and maybes, that I just don’t see how this film can happen anytime soon. But IESB insists that Justice League of America will start shooting in early 2008 with George Miller directing. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Elijah Wood Guests Stars in Premiere of Yo Gabba Gabba!



Yo Gabba Gabba!, "Nick Jr.'s new live-action music series", premiers August 20th with Elijah Wood as guest stars.

The Roots' beatboxer Rahzel will appear at some point in the season but Biz Markie gets the hookup with Biz's Beat of the Day:
The first season of Yo Gabba Gabba! will feature a recurring role by Hip Hop legend Biz Markie in a "Biz's Beat of the Day" segment where he teaches preschoolers how to beat-box, and a recurring role by singer, illustrator and composer Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) in a "Mark's Magic Pictures" drawing segment. Additional guest stars include, Elijah Wood in the premiere episode ("Eat"), Mya, The Shins, Sugarland, Rahzel, Tony Hawk, Laila Ali, Sean Kingston, Nikki Flores, Hector Jimenez, Smoosh, The Aquabats, The Aggrolites and Cornelius.

It's good to see Biz in on this and I think beatboxing is a great way to introduce kids to the rhythmic magic of hip hop.

The episode premieres today at 9:30am Central Time. Elijah Wood is dancing with puppets, I'll be watching for lolz.

Spies spotted the notorious flirt “sitting with a bronze-skinned brunette with long brown hair all night at a cocktail table near the dance floor” at an HBO party on the roof of the Tribeca Grand. “They were obviously into each other,” said the spy. “It was just the two of them . . . he had no entourage at all.” Another source dished to us, “He is notorious.

Britney and Paris to Be Trump's Tarts?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Britney Spears' prayers have been answered -- now that the Donald himself has offered to hire her and resurrect her career.

Armed with the searing insight that she's a "[bleeping] mess," Trump tells Page Six that he's "negotiating" with Brit-Brit about appearing on his "Celebrity Apprentice" and that he's also "thinking about" having Paris Hilton on the show, though, says Lord Combover, "I don't know if we're going to do it." As for Brit and Paris' comrade-in-wreckitude, Lindsay Lohan, Trump says he's going to contact her this week about the show.

Paris' rep says he wasn't aware if any deal was in the works, and Spears and Lohan mouthpieces weren't available.

Pete Doherty arrested, AGAIN.


LONDON - Pete Doherty was arrested early on Monday on suspicion of drugs possession, a police source said. Doherty, 28, was arrested with two others, a man and a woman, after being stopped in a car in Tower Hamlets in east London.

The troubled singer, who has had an on-off relationship with supermodel Kate Moss, had been performing with his band Babyshambles at the V Festival in Staffordshire late on Sunday.

All three were taken to an east London police station where they remain in custody.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “At 2:30 a.m. officers in Tower Hamlets arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of possessing drugs.”

Doherty was warned by a magistrate earlier this month he faced a prison sentence if he failed to demonstrate he was trying to kick his drugs habit.

The singer pleaded guilty in July to possessing crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine.

Juliette Lewis talks about a Foo Fighters party and being in 'Chulmsfield'


(if it doesn't work, it's on NME or here on YouTube )

Juliett And The Licks talked exclusively to NME.COM at the V Festival.

During the interview, for which the Oscar-nominated Juliette Lewis was joined by guitarist Todd Morse, Lewis spoke of a Foo Fighters after-party and the other A-list bands who were invited.

In the video introduction she said, "Hi, I'm Juliet Lewis and I'm at the V Festival in Chumsfield," prompting laughter from nearby revellers amused by her mispronunciation of the Chelmsford site name.

She went on to talk of the bands she was excited about seeing, and described her show as, "like we're a giant muscle car, breaking through a barricade with the cops after us".

Before the drugs and booze: Amy Winehouse's mother speaks

The article is WAY too long, so I am just posting the best parts. The entire thing is at the source

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


  • "Right now I don't even think this is Amy's fault. I think her brain's addled. This isn't Amy. It's as if her whole life's turned into a stage performance.
  • "A part of me has prepared myself for this over the years. She has said to me, 'I don't think I'm going to survive that long.'
  • "It's almost as though she's created her own ending. She's on a path of self-mutilation, quite literally. What else are all the tattoos about? I hate them. They're horrible. It's like a sickness but she cannot see it.
  • "People talk a lot about the anger in Amy's songs. I think a lot of it was that her father wasn't there. Now he's trying to make up for that and he's spending more time with her but what he's doing now is what he should have been doing then."
  • The first sign of real trouble was Amy's admission that she had an eating disorder. Janis says: "She always had a very good appetite. She was never fussy.
  • "Last summer she performed at a friend's wedding and she was sick in the loos. Then, before Christmas, I was taking her to the dentist and she admitted she had anorexia and bulimia. "Her self-harming was never apparent. I never knew about it at the time. She would tell me about 'her friend's' problems and she sometimes said that one of them used to cut themselves but I never realised then she might have been talking about herself.
  • "The day before, she told a friend she was going to get married and the friend was really worried because there was no pre-nup, nothing. She also called her father and he begged her not to do it.
  • Janis tries to hide her disappointment and worry but it is clear she is desperately hurt by Amy's behaviour. She doesn't play her CDs in the house and admits: "Sometimes I don't phone her because if I don't phone her, I don't get hurt. She can't just brush me off and say she's too busy or too tired."

David Beckham: "I'm a terrible person.."





David Beckham is a 'terrible person' when he's not playing soccer. The LA Galaxy star sulks when he's injured and wife Victoria must endure his snarly mood swings. Becks explained:

"I'm a terrible person to be around when I'm not playing soccer. When I'm injured or when I'm off the team, you can ask my wife, she knows exactly how I am and how passionate I am about being on the field, and when I'm not on the field it affects me on and off the pitch."

However, he's finding family life in LA much more pleasurable. David told CNN International's World Sport:

"I'm loving it. I think it's a great place to bring up kids. It's a great place for my family to live. Victoria is happy and the three boys are really happy. They couldn't be any happier at the moment. There are so many different places they haven't been. They go down to the beach once or twice a week. To have that quality in their lives makes them very happy."

But, Becks still does miss merry old England. He added:

"I miss a lot of things. I miss my family back there. My parent, my grandparents, my sisters. It's about experiencing different things, different cultures and ways of life. What better way of life than living in the U.S. and bringing your kids up here for a while."

Joseph Gordon Levitt’s ‘Uncertainty’ is High

Former 3rd Rock from the Sun star Joseph Gordon Levitt, 26, and co-star Lynn Collins, 28, films scenes for their upcoming drama Uncertainty on Mott St. in NYC’s Chinatown on Sunday.

Uncertainty is a two-paneled drama about a New York City couple who make a life-changing decision over a Fourth of July weekend. The film is set for a 2008 release and loosely based on a script by Siegel and McGehee, who also are producing. Siegel and McGehee wrote and directed The Deep End and co-directed Bee Season.

Mary-Kate "Freaked Out" by Spies in Her Classroom!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

No one was the tiniest bit shocked when teeny Mary-Kate Olsen decided to ditch NYU, but she didn't drop out because of weight issues, dislike of study, or a sudden realization that she was a teenage multi-millionaire with as much use for a college education as Britney Spears has for a live mike.

The rapidly-aging celebutwin tells New York magazine this week that she bailed on NYU because she was spooked by classmates who were spying on her; selling their snitchy stories to tabs and working at glossies that were happy to receive dispatches from the classroom. "They'd have internships at the weeklies," says MK. "Learning is not fun if you're not safe."

The mag points out that the "Weeds" guest star didn't actually drop out -- she's still enrolled and has only a year-and-a-half to go for a degree. MK and Ashley are in the midst of launching a new fashion line, The Row, which will be most conspicuous for the absence of any trace of the mini twins themselves, either in face or name.

"There are so many issues in America. Our involvement in the Iraq war is the most obvious, and also the way some people are treated. I would also change the weekends to workdays, and have the whole week as a weekend. Then I'd be a popular politician wouldn't I?"

A ginormous Pushing Daisies post.

Pushing Daisies may be easier to watch than it is to describe. In a medium that thrives on the cut-and-dried, the new ABC fall series is part romantic fantasy, part comedy and partly a whimsical take on crime-solving.

And it concerns itself with death, or rather, undeath: Its hero, Ned — a pie-shop owner who can bring the dead back to life with a touch of his finger — helps a detective solve murder cases by interviewing the victims. One of them, it turns out, is his childhood sweetheart, but their love must remain unrequited. If he kisses or even touches her again, she'll die for good.

"I always feel so stupid, like I'm not doing the show justice, when you try to say, 'I play Ned, who can touch dead people and bring them back to life, but if I touch them a second time, then they die. And if I keep them alive for more than a minute, then someone else will die,' " says star Lee Pace. "It makes it sound like CSI with a twist. It's a really tricky one to describe."

So ABC would just as soon not bother.

Nick Jr. offers up a rave party for the 5-and-under set

this article is pretty hilarious, and i can tell people love this show already

Sometimes, I think a prerequisite for developing a preschoolers' TV show is taking a certain amount of illicit drugs -- coming up with a concept, awash in swirly graphics and primary colors, that is equally fascinating to 3-year-olds on a Monday morning and 19-year-olds late on a Friday night. There's even something trippy about Mr. Rogers, when you think hard enough about it.
"Yo Gabba Gabba!," Nick Jr.'s latest addition to the genre, takes that template and adds an electronic beat. The new series, which premieres at 10:30 this morning, is essentially a rave party for toddlers, a meditation on what the Teletubbies might be if they got hopped up on Ecstasy.

Sad news regarding 'High School Musical' star Olesya Rulin



21-year-old Olesya Rulin has gone from Russian dancer to Hollywood star over the past twenty months, riding the “High School Musical” skyrocket all the way to an A-list premiere this week at Disneyland. And in comparison with her Moscow upbringing, things are getting more surreal everyday.

I got in today to L.A. from Shreveport, Louisiana - from the set of this movie I’m filming called Major Movie Star,’” she grinned, giving us some details on the flick she stars in alongside Jessica Simpson. “Now there’s all these people here — all these kids and fans and they’re all screaming — and I’m so happy to be here.”

The “here” was the world premiere of “High School Musical 2,” starring herself, Ashley Tisdale and Zak Efron. And once all the screaming and singing was over, she assured us, she’d be back on-set opposite the world’s most famous ditzy blonde.

I’m co-starring next to Jessica Simpson, and it’s about a major movie star that joins the United States Army,” she explained of the plot. “We’ve been going through boot camp…and we really are going through boot camp!”

These days, Rulin has been face down in the mud alongside Simpson - a long way from East High School. “I’ve been going through mortar fire, and swamps, and I have bug bites, bruises and scars now,” she said. “There’s a group of five of us, and we’re running and working together as the army would.”

“She’s a wonderful soul, and beautiful, and I love her to death,” Rulin said of her long-legged co-star. “She’s a talented actress, and I’m so happy that she comes to work with 120 percent, and delivers.”

After she wraps the flick “I’m going to go to Russia to see my family,” Rulin said with a sigh. At that point, things will return to normal for a few months - and then it’ll all start back up again when “Major Movie Star” hits theaters in early ‘08.

Ryan + Emmys = Sad attempt at ratings



Ryan Seacrest of "American Idol" is hosting next month's Emmy ceremony, but viewers still won't be able to call in and pick the winners.

Seacrest's appeal is expected to be a "magnet" that pulls viewers, especially younger ones, to the awards show on Fox, Dick Askin, chairman and chief executive officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said Monday.

The 59th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Sept. 16.

Last year's Emmys, hosted on NBC by Conan O'Brien, drew about 16.1 million viewers, the second least-watched Emmy telecast since 1991. It aired unusually early, in August, to make way for NBC's National Football League telecast.

The awards ceremony rotates among the four major broadcast networks.

The Emmys were to have even more of an "Idol" touch, with two of the talent show's executive producers, Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick, producing. But they withdrew from the job earlier this year, citing their demanding schedules, and veteran producer Ken Ehrlich stepped in.

HBO's recently departed "The Sopranos" is the most-nominated series with 15 bids, while the made-for-TV movie "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" has the most nominations, 17, for all programs.

Cutting-edge shows such as "30 Rock" dominated the comedy series category, with "Ugly Betty" leading the charge with 11 nominations. Fox may also be hoping that another hot new show, NBC's "Heroes," proves an Emmy draw for advertiser-favored young adult viewers.

Pavarotti still in the hospital



Luciano Pavarotti will remain hospitalized for several more days to have further tests related to his pancreatic cancer, Modena Polyclinic said Monday.

The 71-year-old tenor was admitted to the hospital on Aug. 8 because of a high fever.

The hospital statement said that even though the fever is gone, Pavarotti's stay was extended for "the opportunity to conduct further tests related to" the cancer.

The opera star had surgery for the cancer in July 2006 in a New York hospital.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease, though doctors said the surgery offered improved the singer's hopes for survival.

At the time of the operation, Pavarotti had been preparing to resume his farewell tour. He has made no public appearances since then.

JJ Outs All of Hollywood

From JJ's Blog:

Hollywood Outed...Like it or not!!!

Why do many of the other sites post 'blind items' that give a hint to someone being gay or drug users without actually saying his/her name? If it is a fact you know and there is proof, why not just come out and say it plain as day???

Just like Perez Hilton's post regarding music mogul, Clive Davis and his private sexuality in which he has kept hidden most of his life...Perez had never said his name, but I will.

Honestly, I never thought it was a big deal that Clive Davis was gay. Actually, I thought most knew, just as I did with Merv Griffin. Davis has been married previously and has kids from his previous marriage, like many other stars who have 'beards.' Does this really mean anything anymore when these Hollywood stars have men on the side?

I get TONS of slack for 'outing' celebrities, but why live your life in the closet when you could have a major influence on the gay community as a whole??? Yes, it is their 'private' lives but nothing is so private when you get paid millions of dollars to be a public figure, is it??? To me it is also not fair to lie to their fans and even their families at that! That's why most of their ex relationships must sign agreements while in the relationship...(EX: TOM CRUISE)

Now, not all stars are hiding their private lives, but here is a list of those that are gay or bisexual, that I know of!!! Hate if you want, but get over it.

Nicole Kidman = Box Office Poison

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

No matter how much money she’s being guaranteed for movies these days, Nicole Kidman had better start thinking twice about her legacy as an actress.

Her new one, “The Invasion,” opened Friday and bombed quite brilliantly. It took in a little less than $2 million. The price for this disaster? Over $100 million. And even though it co-stars James Bond actor Daniel Craig, nothing can make “The Invasion” into a hit.

What’s worse is, no one wanted even to see it in theatres. At boxofficemojo.com, a poll among subscribers showed almost no interest in “The Invasion.”

Of course, the marketing didn’t help. The movie looked like “The Stepford Wives II,” another Kidman disaster. And in many of the ads, Craig’s name wasn’t even mentioned. It was just Nicole Kidman, looking beautiful, running among dead eyed weirdos.

The public smelled a rat, Warner Bros. punted, and the rest is history.

Kidman was riding high in her career at one point with hits like “The Hours,” for which she won an Oscar, “The Others,” and “Moulin Rouge.”

But lately her choices of projects have been disastrous. From “Stepford” to “Bewitched” to “Fur,” “Birth,” “Dogville,” “The Interpreter,” and her misguided work in “Cold Mountain,” Kidman has made one bad decision after another. What it shows is a lack of direction, and no one to manage or guide her.

There may be hope, though: Kidman and Ralph Fiennes have just signed on to star in “The Reader” for Weinstein Co. But in the meantime, Kidman will appear in Baz Luhrmann’s epic “Australia” and sooner, Noah Baumbach’s “Margot at the Wedding.” She needs not only a commercial hit but a critical one to re-establish her position as the best actress of her generation.

Setzer is taking another stab at recreating the swing fad almost ten years later, but is taking a unique, experimental approach. His forthcoming album, Wolfgang’s Big Night Out, is a concept project in which Setzer uses an 18-membered band to create swing-styled remakes of classical music arrangements. The quasi-covers feature original lyrics over familiar melodies - - quite a unique way to introduce younger generations to Mozart, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky.

'I'm sexy', says Lindsay Lohan



It seems Lindsay Lohan's third rehab stint isn't affecting her enough to think beyond her sexy persona.

The 21-year-old, who posed in stockings and suspenders for Jill Stuart's lingerie range declared that she felt she was sexy, in Maxim's 10th anniversary September issue.

"I like to think of myself as sexy," New York Daily News quoted Lohan, as saying.

"My breasts have been a really big hit," she said.

The troubled starlet also insisted that so much 'fame' doesn't let her trust many people.

"There are so many people I can't trust," she said.

Axl Rose to guest on Sebastian Bach's new album

Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach is set to release "Angel Down" on November 20, his first solo album in eight years. The 14-song "Angel Down" was produced by Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD, JUDAS PRIEST), and was recorded in July and August 2006 at Sound City studios in Hollywood, CA. The CD will be released via a joint venture between Merovingian Music, Ltd. (MRV) and Bach's Get Off My Bach Productions, and distributed worldwide through Caroline/EMI Music Group.

BLABBERMOUTH.NET was granted an opportunity to conduct an exclusive interview with Bach this past Friday (August 17) about his upcoming CD and his collaboration with GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose on two of the album's cuts — first single "(Love Is) A Bitchslap" and a cover of AEROSMITH's "Back in the Saddle". The following is a transcript of that conversation:

Q: I understand that you recently did some work in the studio with Axl Rose on one of your new songs [Note: Before the interview being conducted, BLABBERMOUTH.NET was informed that Axl had only recorded a guest appearance on "(Love Is) A Bitchslap"]. Is that still being worked on right now or are you already done with all the recordings?

Sebastian: It's already done, dude. It's in the can.

Gene Simmons' Family Jewels renewed for 3rd and 4th season



According to Metromix.com, the A&E network is already talking about a possible fourth season of KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons' reality series "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" (which just wrapped season 2). That's just fine with Simmons, who embraces his persona of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.

"My life's an open book," Simmons said. "There is no reason why anybody should ever show up in the rags that women buy on the way out of the supermarket — you know, the 'National This' or 'Enquirer That.' The only reason people show up in the magazine is because they have dual lives — a public life and a secret life. I don't have a secret life."

Variety reported in June that A&E in the U.S. has said yes to a third season of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels", upping its order to 24 half-hour episodes from last season's 20 installments.

According to Variety, the decision was an easy one: "Jewels" is A&E's second-highest-rated series ever in the 18-to-49 and 25-to-54 adult demographics, behind only "Dog the Bounty Hunter". "Jewels" did even better in its second season than in its first, leaping by 15 percent in total viewers to a 1.5 million average and climbing by 11 percent in adults 18 to 49 and by 8 percent in adults 25 to 54.

A&E's relationship with Mr. Simmons started with a one-shot "Biography" hour of the rock legend and KISS bassist/vocalist. That "Biography" episode scored so well in the Nielsens that A&E negotiated with Mr. Simmons and "Jewels" executive producer Leslie Grief to create a 13-episode weekly half-hour series that would delve into the rock star's life with his common-law partner, former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed, and their teenage son and daughter.

FAECAL MATTER > ACTION ROLES?


English thespian Stephen Fry would turn down the chance to star in an action role on the big screen, because he's too lazy. The 49-year-old has carved out a successful career playing upper class characters in movies - and is happy to be typecast. Speaking at the UK premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum, Fry says, "I would rather suck faecal matter out of the arsehole of a goat (than play an action role). It would be terrible. You'd have to jump around and off things, and have stuff shot at you and squirting out of you. And you'd have to spend the preceding three whole months in the gym."

Fry began his career in comedy alongside fellow Brit hugh Laurie on Saturday Live. The pair went on to appear in Blackadder ll, Blackadder the Third and Blackadder Goes Forth. In recent years fry has turned his hand to directing his debut being Bright young Things in 2001 starring Stephen Campbell Moore, John Mills and James McAvoy.

Showtime — The Best Sh*t on Television

I'm usually not influenced by commercials (I'm lying) but Mulder getting head in the new Showtime commercial may just make me watch.

Showtime, which used to tout itself as the net with "no limits," is applying that ethos to its on-air promos as well.

The pay cabler's new promo spot features characters from its shows uttering various exclamations that include the word "sh*t" -- from "oh" to "holy."

By itself, such a promo would be unremarkable, given the R-rated content of so many Showtime skeins and movies. But the ad -- spearheaded by Showtime execs Frank Pintauro and Angie Speranza -- doesn't stop there. The montage is set to the Centralia song "Holy Sh*t," which includes lyrics such as "I've been such an as*hole/I've been such a prick" and "Holy, holy sh*t/We've got the world by the tit."

Michael Vick to plead guilty



Offense is punishable by up to five years in prison 

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick's lawyer said Monday the NFL star will plead guilty to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges, putting the Atlanta Falcons quarterback's career in jeopardy and leaving him subject to a possible prison term.

The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, although federal sentencing guidelines most likely would call for less.

"After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him," lead defense attorney Billy Martin said in a statement.

"Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter."

Vick's plea hearing will be Aug. 27, Martin said.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has barred Vick from the Falcons' training camp but has withheld further action while the league conducts its own investigation.

Vick is charged with conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and conspiracy to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture.

Martin's announcement came as a grand jury that could add new charges met in private. Prosecutors had said that a superseding indictment was in the works, but Vick's plea most likely means he will not face additional charges.

Three of Vick's original co-defendants already have pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against him if the case went to trial. Quanis Phillips of Atlanta and Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach signed statements saying the 27-year-old quarterback participated in executing at least eight underperforming dogs by various means, including drowning and hanging.

Phillips, Peace and Tony Taylor, who pleaded guilty last month, also said Vick provided virtually all of the gambling and operating funds for his "Bad Newz Kennels" operation in Surry County, Va., not far from Vick's hometown of Newport News.

The gambling allegations alone could trigger a lifetime ban under the NFL's personal conduct policy. source

Bail for Bollywood's Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Dutt arrives at the special court in Mumbai for his sentencing




Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, jailed for buying weapons from bombers who attacked Mumbai in 1993, has been given 'temporary' bail by the Supreme Court.

Dutt was sentenced for six years three weeks ago and is being held in a prison in the western Indian city of Pune.

It is not yet clear if the actor would be free on Monday or whether he would have to wait for legal formalities.

Dutt is the most high-profile of 100 people convicted in connection with the blasts which killed 257 people.

He was cleared of conspiracy, but found guilty of illegally possessing a rifle and a pistol.

Dutt's lawyers appealed for bail in the Supreme Court a fortnight ago.

Jet Li attacks China film censors

Jet Li in Hero



Chinese action star Jet Li has voiced frustration that his Hollywood films do not get shown in his home country.

Writing on his website, the star said his 2000 hit Romeo Must Die was banned by censors for featuring gangsters.

In 2001, Kiss of the Dragon was banned because Li's character, a Chinese policeman, killed people abroad.

"Films don't always have to be realistic," said Li, who argued China's film industry was suffering as a result of the restrictions placed on it.

"Typically, action films have good and bad characters," the star said.

"If gangsters aren't appropriate and police officers aren't appropriate, then what type of character can there be that wouldn't start an argument?"

"It leaves only the ancient Chinese stories to be produced."

Paris: I'll go on Big Brother

Ok , this is funny, but considering the source I'm not so sure I believe it......
 
PARTY girl Paris Hilton is set to sign for Celebrity Big Brother after being offered more than £300,000, The Sun can reveal.

Ex-con Paris, 26, is desperate to raise her profile in the UK — and is prepared to be locked up for another three weeks in the Channel 4 house.

A Big Bro source said: “We told Paris, ‘Name your price’.


“We’re in firm talks, and it would be a fantastic coup to get her.”

An insider said Paris is aiming to show she is more than an “heirhead socialite”.

They added: “She wants people to see that she’s not a bimbo or a wildchild.

“The only time anyone hears about her is when she’s been up to no good — or saying something ridiculous.

“She’s actually smart and funny, with lots of interesting things to say.

"She would easily be the star of the show — but obviously she won’t do it unless the money is right.”

Paris would become the highest paid celeb on the show to date, with chiefs set to offer her a sum to dwarf Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty’s £300,000.

There is no hint yet which other celebrities will be go into house and share the Diary Room with Paris in January.

But appearing on Big Bro would cap a tumultuous year for the hotel heiress.

Her reality show The Simple Life was axed after the pair fell out.

Then in June she was thrown in jail for 23 days for driving offences.

Meanwhile Celeb Big Bro bosses are anxious to get the show back on track after the race row earlier this year.

Zac Efron & Lauren Conrad Into Kabbalah?






I have been deeply pondering about the significance of the red string bracelet that High School Musical's Zac Efron and The Hills' Lauren Conrad have been sporting lately. Zac and Lauren’s strings each have a charm of a hand on them called a 'hamsa'. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of TLC’s Shalom in the Home explains:

"It’s a kabbalistic symbol. Wearing it is meant to bring down God’s mercy and kindness.”

The crimson-colored bracelets look very similar to the red Kabbalah string Madonna and Britney Spears made famous a few years ago. Nicole Richie has also been spotted sporting the red bracelet. However Zac, 19, (who’s girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, 18 also wears one) tells Us Weekly his bracelet:

"Is not a Kabbalah string. There’s no religious meaning to it.”

Celeb Watch: For Quinto, the next step is the final frontier



By William Keck, USA TODAY
LOS ANGELES — Zachary Quinto slices open skulls as Heroes-killing Sylar on NBC's cult hit, which returns Sept. 24 for Season 2.

And this fall, he'll boldly go where just one man has gone before — inheriting Leonard Nimoy's pointy ears as Mr. Spock in the next Star Trek film, to be directed by J.J. Abrams.

Quinto and Nimoy have become fast friends since meeting briefly at San Diego's Comic-Con sci-fi convention last month. They had more time to connect during a recent tour of the Griffith Observatory. That led to Nimoy inviting Quinto to his home for dinner.

Though there is speculation about how Abrams will make use of both Spocks in the film, no one is talking. "I honestly … can't say," Quinto, 30, says during lunch at the observatory's cafe after bidding farewell to Nimoy.

But perhaps a tiny clue is revealed. "I think there's going to be a sense of guidance through this film and beyond," he says. In Nimoy, 76, Quinto has found a father figure of sorts.

Mel C bans drinking from the Spice Girls tour

Sporty Spice doesn't want the other Spice Girls drinking on the tour, so she banned alcohol according to ISE.

"Going on tour is like getting married. You have to look your best and prepare by exercising three to five times a week.

"If we're touring and doing show after show, we have to really look after ourselves. We might occasionally have a few drinks in the dressing room, but we can't really do that.

"I'm sure most of the time we'll be back in our hotel rooms, relaxing in the bath, because we can't go out and play!"

As well as limiting the girls' alcohol consumption, Mel is also going to make sure the group get an early night before each show and eat the right foods.

She added: "We'll be going to bed by 10.30am. When you have a show, the night before has to be an early one.

"You should eat about four hours before so you're not hungry when you go on stage and have the energy needed to perform. I also recommend avoiding dairy because it can affect your voice."

And here we all thought Posh was going to be to the tough one on the Spice Girls, looks like it is actually going to be Sporty Spice. Rumor has it they might be adding more dates, but with rules like the above let's hope they keep the ones they have.

JJ Outs Black Hollywood this Time

JJ continues his outing of celebrities on his blog:

More outings...Here ya go!!!

As requested by many fans around the world, lets name more stars that are gay or bi.

After adding yesterday's blog post, I have been hit up by so many high profile individuals in the entertainment industry that are leaking information to me like rain drops...

Rapper Big Tigger was formerly with Karrine Steffans, aka "Superhead," and while with Steffans he was messing with Tyson Beckford. I got this vibe from Tyson but never thought he went down like this.

It is said from a TOP Atlanta celebrity stylists that R. Kelly, Ja Rule, DMX all slept with their male fashion stylist. Oh and R. Kelly's brother outed him a while back too...

What man hasn't DIDDY slept with??? Wendy Williams has never been afraid of outing Sean Colmbs. (Say brother on the DL???)

There are police records of "Pastor" Mase picking up Tyranny's in Atlanta & NY...

Ludacris, back when he was "Chris Luva-Luva", was sleeping with a random gay guy, who is now a gay porn star. The porn stars name is Gordon. I don't know what his porn name is...

Another TOP Hollywood insider says Sug Knight & LL Cool J were in a limo with a random friend of hers, while LL was rolling on X, and he was licking a beer bottle as if it were a penis towards Sug Knight...

Then you have the obvious Missy Elliott, Trina, DaBrat lesbian encounters that have been witnessed by several hundreds of people in ATL

Swizz Beats...Wendy Williams outed him before too...

Ne-Yo is just obivous..Mediatakeout.com has done some break through stories on his sexuality!!!

I knew a girl in LA who was Magic Johnson's assistant, and she talked about the gay sex parties that Magic, Eddie Murphy, and Arsenio used to have together.

Johnnie Gill & Eddie Murphy have been sleeping together for years....

Missy Elliott was having sex with singer Trina until Da Brat stole her away. Also Missy & "America's Next Top Model," Eva Pigford were together. Eva was also sleeping the woman who was the Executive Producer for Girlfriends and that's how she got her own show on BET!

Case, Bejar, Mirman, Cross Spice Up Newman Wedding
New Pornos add Euro dates


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Supergroup? How about superwedding? Sorry ladies (and dudes), as of "a recent Saturday," New Pornographer Carl Newman is officially off the market. And while normally we'd let our favorite indie rockers go about their marryin' in peace and private, this particular ceremony just so happens to have been written up in The New York Times.

The Times also reports that groom Newman and bride Christy Simpson, a marketing manager at Newman/New Pornographers label Matador, were hitched to the tune of Neko Case belting out a bunch of "songs about love gone wrong."

It was typically surreal for a ceremony that also included Eugene Mirman as master of ceremonies, David Cross in whale-print pants, and fellow Pornographers Dan Bejar, Kathryn Calder, Blaine Thurier, and John Collins in attendance. Mates of State even performed at the afterparty, which soon spun karaoke-ways, with Newman doing Phil Collins' "Against All Odds" and Neko and Kathryn teaming for Pink's "Get the Party Started".



The lovely photos you see here come courtesy of Simpson's MySpace. Word is the bride also served as muse to Carl on Challengers, which drops (officially) this week.

Wish the newlyweds well this fall: The New Pornos have add a honeymoon's worth of European dates, tucked between the two previously reported legs of their North American tour.

More 'Justice League of America' news: Ryan Reynolds to play The Flash?



Ryan Reynolds says “The Flash” may yet live. It just might not be in the superhero’s own film first. Just hours ago, our own Shawn Adler peppered the oft-rumored star of “The Flash” about his association with the DC comics speedster and here’s what Reynolds said: “‘The Flashisn’t dead at all. There’s talk of it being a JLA movie, the Justice League having them all together. And then there’s other talk of doing aFlashmovie with [director] Shawn Levy.”

Rumors of a Justice League movie have gained momentum in recent weeks. Now we’re hearing it straight from one of the potential stars’ mouths. When asked if he thought the JLA film might happen first, Reynolds told us, “It might, yeah. I don’t really know how much I’m allowed to talk about that stuff. But I’m sure they’ll figure out something. It’s no secret that they have a JLA script and it’s a project that’s in development – the contents of which, who knows. We’ll see.”

For an actor who’s no longer “officially” attached to play a role, Reynolds sounded very excited about the prospect of a Justice League film, “I’d love to see a full on Justice League movie done, the scope of which is just enormous. I think it’s something they can pull off.”

Rep denies diss

A rep for Maroon 5’s Adam Levine denies that the singer dissed tennis star Maria Sharapova’s lovemaking abilities.

The rumors are "absolutely not true,” says Levine’s rep.

And continued to say, “I represent Maroon 5 and wanted to let you know that the quote on your site [from the Russian newspaper] isn’t true. Adam never said this, and they only met once at Maria’s birthday party in 2004.”

Earlier this month, alternative Moscow newspaper The Exile reported that Levine had compared his 20-year-old former flame to a "dead frog” in bed.

"She wouldn't make any noise during sex. I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I really thought, like a lot of guys, that she'd be the loud screaming type,” The Exile quoted Levine, 28.

"But instead, she just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, saying it 'ruined her concentration."

Levine’s rep denies that the interview took place.

17.2 million people may have tuned in on Friday to watch High School Musical 2 but one person who didn’t was one of the stars herself, Vanessa Hudgens! BBV was busy getting the Broadway backstage treatment during a performance of Spring Awakening at NYC’s The Eugene O’Neill Theater.

Rai plays one of the detectives alongside Alfred Molina. The pair joins forces with French police detective Jacques Clouseau, played by Steve Martin, to catch the thief who has been stealing artifacts around the world.

During film breaks, Aishwarya, 33, hung around the set with hubby-of-four-months Abhishek Bachchan.

Slowly by surely, Rai is making her way through Hollywood. She has an even bigger role in her next film Singularity, a war drama co-starring Brendan Fraser.

Jennifer Lopez and husband, Marc Anthony are on the set of Jennifer’s latest music video, Do It Well. The two lovers just visited craft truck and ordered some coffee.

Do It Well, directed by the highly sought after photographer and director, David LaChapelle. The story takes place in a vivid, colorful, stylized David LaChapelle world. It’s a sexy, sweaty underworld through which Jennifer struts with all the street-tough style of a ghetto goddess… channeling PaM Grier in films like “Coffy” and “Foxy Brown”. She’s a vision of a badass street vixen, starring in a modern take on “Sweet Charity”. This is a world of danger, where everything is colored in shades of gold, from dark to light, but still dirty and gritty. Walls are made of cinderblock, painted gold and covered in graffiti. Furniture is chipped and tarnished gold. The world Jennifer has entered is a seedy ghetto harem.

If you're a superstar Hollywood actress, one of the nice things about visiting Chicago is the absence of paparazzi.

Or so Gwyneth Paltrow thought.
Paltrow arrived at the same time as her former fiance, Brad Pitt, his companion, Angelina Jolie, and their children. Their presence has meant more star-hunting photographers than usual, said Paltrow, in town Friday to promote perfume at a Macy's store.

Paltrow also stayed at The Peninsula Chicago, where the Pitt-Jolie family is living while Jolie films the movie "Wanted."

"When Brad and Angelina leave, won't they (paparazzi) go, too?" the 34-year-old said. "Don't you think they sort of blow in and out with the celebs?"

In 2003, the Oscar-winning actress said she loved coming to Chicago "because there's no paparazzi."

Novel rumors a 'joke that got out of hand.'



Earlier this week, we told you about a Scottish novelist's comment stating that JK Rowling was writing a crime novel. In a new interview with the author Ian Rankin, he describes the rumors as a "joke that got out of hand. There were 600 people in the audience, and only one person didn't laugh."

Emma Schlesinger, speaking for Rowling's literary agent, has commented on the theories concerning Jo and her next book.

"JK Rowling is taking a well-earned break following the English language publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and there are no firm plans as yet as to what her next book may be."

Piebald calls it quits. :(


farewell...
Ladies and Gentleman, 8-19-07

Friends, friends, friends…we have not posted anything anywhere in quite some time and our word on the street is that this is our last tour. All the preceding words are true and we have decided to put Piebald to rest. The past fifteen years or so have been nothing short of extremely incredible. We have met lots of people, been to lots of places and experienced a whole lot of life. In 1994 we started making music, screenprinting our own seven inch covers and borrowing our parents cars to get to shows. Since then, we have traveled the globe, released many records, and played thousands of shows; pedaling the righteous name of piebald to all whose paths we crossed. In celebration of the many years of good times and incredible accomplishments, we have decided to dedicate this tour to us; Piebald. Thanks to all who have helped in any and every way…families, friends, girlfriends, vans, bands, fans, promoters, labels, booking agent, lawyer, clubs, engineers, producers, and those who we forgot to mention. Now, this is not a teary eyed time, people. This is a time of new beginnings, positive vibes, and a congratulatory nod to the past. There has been talk of a few shows to give the band an official sendoff, but as of yet, those shows are not booked and unknown. Thanks for all the undying support. We love you.

Sincerely,
Piebald
Luke, Andrew, Aaron, and Travis

there may not be many 'bald fans here, but lesser known bands have been posted before.
i finally got to see them for the first and apparently last time last night. this news hit me hard.

Photos from the premiere of SUPERBAD

We were on vacation in LA last week and we heard that the premiere of Superbad was taking place, so we decided to head over to Grauman's to see if we could see any famous people. Of course they had everything in front of the theatre blocked off, so we were standing across the street. My husband, being who he is, had the guts to charge across Hollywood Blvd, right into the middle of everything as the premiere was letting out. So as the rest of us waited stupidly on the other side of the road, my husband was taking pictures with "celebrities"...

NOTE: Apparently the two stars of the film did not stop for photos or autographs with anyone. Kind of lame considering that most people have no clue who they even are! Perhaps they were in a hurry!
