Hayden & Milo’s Lovin’ Lunch



Heroes hotties Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia grab lunch together at a cafe near her West Hollywood apartment on Wednesday.

Co-stars that eat together, um, you tell me.

Milo is also the cover boy for the latest issue of Men’s Fitness. He reveals on a recent date, his lady friend asked, “So you’re polite, you don’t drink, you don’t smoke, you’re a vegetarian, you keep yourself fit, and you’re successful. What’s wrong with you?”

Tennant on Extras?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

DOCTOR Who star David Tennant has landed a role in Ricky Gervais’ hit comedy Extras.

The Scot actor, 36, joins a huge cast of stars for the 80-minute Christmas special.

Bosses are remaining tight-lipped about David’s appearance in the final episode of the award-winning show — but insiders suggest it will be linked to his role as the timelord.

One said: “David’s a huge fan of the show and extremely popular, so we’ve signed him up. He’ll be in good company as we’re lining up some other great names.”

The cast also includes comedians Hale and Pace, former Steps star Lisa Scott Lee and X Factor poser Chico.

TV Biz earlier revealed that celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, actor Clive Owen, TV host Vernon Kay and veteran dancer Lionel Blair will also appear.

Meanwhile, Ricky has recorded a hilarious promo video for Extras — which sees him try and pitch the idea for the series to the Dragons’ Den millionaires.

He tries to convince the loaded investors to give him cash but fails miserably. The spoof will be screened during Ricky’s stand-up tour.

Andrzej Bartkowiak to Direct 'Street Fighter'



Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom have signed action specialist Andrzej Bartkowiak to direct Street Fighter, a live-action feature film based on Capcom's video game.

Production is set to begin early next year with Fox distributing. Hyde Park's Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello are producing while Capcom executive produces.

Bartkowiak's credits include Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, Cradle to the Grave and Doom. Prior to directing, his cinematographic credits include Lethal Weapon 4, U.S. Marshals, Falling Down and Speed.

The film is focused on female fighter Chun Li and her journey for justice. Justin Marks wrote the script and is currently doing a polish.

A film version of the game has already been produced before. In 1994, Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in the Universal movie, written and directed by Steven de Souza.

It can't be any worse than the one with Van Damme, right? I f-ing loved Chun-Li though...I would always play her and kick ass. I just hope they cast a bad-ass Asian chick to play her...Maggie Q, maybe? She might be too predictable though. It might be better if they got an unknown.

And for LOLZ....

Kelly Clarkson coming to your town.



(The Associated Press) Kelly Clarkson, who scrapped an earlier tour this summer due to slow sales, is heading back on the road this fall.
The Grammy-winning singer announced Tuesday she would kick off a theater tour October 14 at New York City's Beacon Theater, winding down in Nashville on December 3 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
"I'm getting pumped to get out there and rock with y'all," she said in a statement. "We intend to blow the roof off these theaters."
The former "American Idol" champ had a rough summer, splitting with her manager amid friction with her record label over the direction of her third album, My December, which debuted at No. 2 on the charts.
In July Clarkson canceled an arena tour due to slow ticket sales, and organizers said that they planned to re-evaluate the size of the tour.

Avril knows how to make her friends cry

AVRIL LAVIGNE knew she'd recorded a ballad to be proud of when all her friends started crying when she first played them her new tune WHEN YOU'RE GONE. The Canadian pop star admits the heartfelt tune about love and loss is one of her most personal songs, and she was stunned when people started reacting emotionally upon hearing it. She says, "It's about the person you miss and all the little things you miss about them. "So many people can relate to it in different ways, whether it's someone going off to war... or losing someone or even just breaking up with someone, or simply just missing someone because you're going away. "This song was very unique for me (because) it's the first song ever where when I played it for the first time to all my friends... every single one of them cried. It was the weirdest thing." Lavigne understood what her friends were crying about when she watched the video for the song for the first time. She adds, "I was, like, crying when I was watching, like, the old man in the video." The touching song even upsets Lavigne's audiences when she performs the tune live. She explains, "I did a concert in Paris for MTV and there was, like, kids in the audience crying. I was, like, choked up onstage."

Ramsay Burns His Testicles

Celebrity chef had to take trip to hospital after getting too close to cooker

Gordon Ramsay burnt his testicle when he got too close to a hot oven.

The celeb chef, 40, had to be rushed to London's private Cromwell Hospital - and he's not too proud to tell the tale.

'The other day I was standing too close to the hob when I was cooking,' he told the Daily Mirror at the GQ Awards.

'I was wearing cotton trousers and underneath I was going commando.

'Then suddenly I felt this searing heat - my balls were burning.

'I burnt my right bollock and I'm in absolute agony. You wouldn't believe how much this hurts.'

Ouch.

Kevin Costner Pleases a Fan



In January a guy started a blog at blogspot called If I Blog It They Will Come with the express purpose of getting a picture of Kevin Costner reading his blog. He said once Costner sent in a picture, he would move on to other celebrities.

He was quite flattering to Mr. Costner, calling himself a genuine fan, declaring that his efforts were sincere, and penning countless open letters to Costner referencing his work, making conversation, and begging for a picture. The blogger was relentless, writing 20 posts a month until May and then kind of slowing down over the summer to about two a week. He said he was on a mission and wouldn't give up.

Jamie Oliver has not seen his mate Brad Pitt since the actor started dating Angelina Jolie.

The TV chef became good friends with Brad, 43, and then-wife Jennifer Aniston, 38, when they flew him over to LA to cook for Brad's 40th birthday in 2004.

'I still see Jennifer a reasonable amount,' says Jamie, 31. 'When she's over here or I'm over there. She's adorable, as ever.

'But Brad I haven't seen for over a year. Life's like that, though, isn't it? Especially when you've got a missus and kids. A lot can happen in two years.'

Leo a no-show at BFF Tobey Maguire's wedding

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Back in the day, young tomcats Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio were inseparable. Prowling Hollywood with their club-hopping compatriots, actor Lukas Haas, magician David Blaine, rapper Q-Tip, and onetime indie movie It-Boy, Harmony Korine. Goofy pranks, rampaging drug-crazed parties, womanizing and lousy tipping were allegedly some of this informal club's credo. But with
Tobey's Sept. 4 secret marriage to baby-mama Jennifer Meyer, the party is obviously long over.

Does the still-single Leo now consider "Spidey" Maguire a sellout? Could bitter feelings be the reason for his Titanic absence from the Hawaiian wedding party? Nope, it's just not that juicy. These are guys we're talking about, remember. According to In Touch, Leo and Tobey are still BFFs. Magazine insiders say that Leo was indeed invited to the wedding, but couldn't attend because of
commitments on his latest film, "Body of Lies".

Still, seeing as Tobey and Jennifer's baby girl Ruby was born nine months before the ceremony, you'd think the couple could've waited just a little longer until Leo's schedule opened up. Ladies, are we right?

Hush Up, Lily Allen!



Lily Allen annoys Madonna, gets kicked from awards show

Lily Allen was kicked out of GQ magazine's Men of the Year awards for annoying Madonna with her drunken antics on Tuesday night.

The 22-year-old singer was politely asked to leave the lavish ceremony at London's Royal Opera House after talking loudly throughout the pop superstar's speech before she presented the Inspiration Award to designer David Collins.

A source said, "Lily was being rude and loud, she was chatting all the way through and it was painfully obvious. At first nobody noticed but then it was evident what she was doing - even Madonna gave her a look."

Lily - who presented the Best Band prize to the Kaiser Chiefs - then embarrassed herself further by stumbling over her strapless red dress on the way to the toilet.

An insider revealed, "Lily tripped up and went flying near a table. Her PR told her they had to go and marched her out. She didn't even make it to the after-party."

But Lily wasn't willing to call it night, and decided to gatecrash the after-party for the premiere of Keira Knightley's latest film 'Atonement' at Claridge's Hotel.

Unfortunately for Lily, Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie arrived at the hotel soon after.

A source said, "Madonna looked slightly disgusted and left shortly afterwards."

Lily's agent denied the star was ejected from the ceremony, saying the rumours were "totally untrue".

He added, "We left together in the car provided by GQ magazine."

The Meems' is getting sued



Superstar Mariah Carey is being sued by her former manager Jerry Blair, who claims the singer owes him money. Blair was employed as the president of Carey's Monar C Entertainment firm, but his contract was terminated after the release of her record-breaking comeback album The Emancipation Of Mimi in 2007. A source tells the New York Daily News, "Jerry stood by Mariah through her breakdown (in 2001). He believed in her when other people lost faith. (After the success of Mimi) she wanted to distance herself from anybody who saw her in those dark times." Blair claims Carey owes him a percentage of her record and tour profits. The source adds, "She hasn't paid him in two years. He had to call in lawyers." Blair is now working with Carey's ex-husband, music mogul Tommy Mottola at his Casablanca Records label.

When Jason Wahler and his fiancée, 19-year-old USC sophomore Katja Decker-Sadowski, announced their engagement at an August 25 housewarming for their L.A. pad, one reveler wasn’t too psyched: his ex Lauren Conrad, whom he dated on and off for a year.

Despite her congratulations, “it seemed like she wasn’t happy for me,” Wahler tells Us, adding that LC showed up unannounced with Audrina Patridge and the Hills cameras.

“I wanted her to go…There was a weird tension,” says Wahler, 20. “I have to give up a friend until it mellows out.”

For her part, Conrad, 21, tells Us, “I am really happy for Jason and wish them all the happiness.”

DanRad as The Doctor? And Barrowman pwns SMG at kissing.

HE may have only just turned 18, but Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is the bookies’ favourite to be the new Doctor Who.

Ladbrokes are offering odds of 3/1 that Radcliffe will take over as the Time Lord if David Tennant steps down after the next series, which is produced by BBC Wales.

If Radcliffe lands the role, he will be the youngest ever Doctor Who. Peter Davison currently holds that accolade – he was just 31 when he took over in 1982.

Tennant, 36, is currently filming the fourth series of Doctor Who to be made since Swansea writer Russell T Davies resurrected the programme in 2004. The new episodes will be aired in spring 2008.

John Barrowman + kissing skills

The Out-backed Popnography has leaked a few steamy details excised from the published John Barrowman interview. Here’s a taste:

"Alexis Denisof is a very good kisser. Also a very good kisser at the moment is James Marsters. But — I shouldn’t have revealed that to you. Can I give you another? [Out Ed. note: The loose-lipped Marsters, who will appear on the second season of Torchwood, recently told fans that Barrowman was a better kisser than Sarah Michelle Gellar.] I did A Few Good Men [in London theater] with Rob Lowe. I didn’t kiss him but I would have liked to. He knows I’d like to kiss him."

Barrowman also wants to screw Wentworth Miller (who wouldn’t?) and thinks British boys are better kissers than Americans.

The 10 Commandments: Avril Lavigne style

Didn't see this posted anywhere. I couldn't help myself; I added my own commentary.


"Selling 24 million albums hasn't really affected me, but it has changed things. I can't walk into a room full of people any more without everybody turning their head, and I can only eat in certain restaurants where I know I won't get hassled. But that's OK. I was born to do this, and so I've learned how to cope."

You were born to do this? Do you think maybe that's a birth defect?

"Someone like Kelly Clarkson is beautiful and has a pretty voice, but with me you get a much stronger image. I'm tough, I have a look that girls want to copy, and I sound a particular way. It's good if you're not easily ignored. And I'm not."
Yes, unfortunately for the hearing world you are not easily ignored.

"I was 17 when my first album came out, and all of a sudden I had to spend my days doing interviews. Listen, when you're 17 you don't know how to hold a conversation with an adult, and you pretty much don't want to. But I learned to channel that annoyance into my music."
It must be so annoying to have to organize your thoughts into speech with an adult present in the room. It must incredibly taxing to be respond to questions like, "Why do you steal other people's music?" and "Do you think someone who actually is punk and actually makes tough music would rather shoot you in the face or burn you alive?"

"When I go to a party, I am the party! I'm the girl doing shots, jumping on tables, screaming and getting wasted. Am I advocating drugs? No! When I say get wasted, that doesn't mean go crazy. Drink in moderation. Be responsible, yeah?"
Well wouldn't you need to get fucked up if you looked like one of the children of the corn?

"I am a very giving person. When the hurricane thing happened [in New Orleans, August 2005], I went to my closet, filled six boxes of stuff and said to my assistant, 'Take it to Katrina!' I also like to give stuff to people who are my 'workers', especially if they don't make much money."
How generous of you! You mean you, with your millions of dollars, actually managed to fill a few boxes up of the old junk from the back of your closet? And, btw Avril, I know the news was confusing and all, but a woman named Katrina did not drive through New Orleans setting shit on fire and pouring water on everyone. Storms have names, you see, but they're not actual persons. So it would be kind of impossible to bring it donations. And if you feel so bad about your employees not being paid enough how about, I don't know, fucking pay them more? I know you're Avril Lavigne, but come on.

"It's important to be thankful, even if you're poor. I mean, come on, we all have clean water--well, OK, not people in the developing world. It's important to remember where we came from, and just how lucky we are to be here."
"You mean, we don't all have clean water? Wait! Is it just, like, white people? I'll put some of my old pants in a box and send it to Africa or wherever it is that people don't have stuff. 'Cause I totally hate suffering."

"I'm not particularly religious, but I am spiritual. What kind? Feng shui, mostly, and energy. I'm good at picking up people's energy, like I'm receptive or something."
If you're so receptive to everyone else's feelings, why haven't you committed suicide yet?

"I got married last year [to Deryck Whibley of Sum 41], simply because I was lucky enough to find the right guy. Did I tame him [Whibley once confessed to a fondness for mushrooms and Ecstasy]? Hey, we were both party animals once, so we've tamed each other."
The only taming going on here is of the gag reflex. Have you seen these two together? I'd rather fuck a moose.

"I want to get into movies next, a lead role in a super cool indie flick. I've been looking at scripts for the past two years now and most of them have been shit, but I know I could be real good at it. I have an agent now, and everything."
OH GOD.

"People love me and people hate me, but I'm comfortable in my own skin and that's what counts. And anyway, if you do hate me, you're the loser, not me."
Awwww...that's so cute. I know you are, but what am I?

Stars urge U.N.'s Ban to help Myanmar's Suu Kyi

More than 25 celebrities including actors Jim Carrey, Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams on Thursday urged the United Nations to help win freedom for Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The stars signed a letter calling on U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to intervene personally to win immediate freedom for the Nobel laureate, who has spent most of the past 17 years in prison or under house arrest in military-ruled former Burma.

"Aung San Suu Kyi is not just a charismatic leader, she is the elected leader of the Burmese people," said the letter, whose signatories also included actors Owen Wilson, Susan Sarandon and Jennifer Aniston as well as Irish singer Damien Rice. Rice is a long-time supporter of Suu Kyi.

"This courageous, brave woman whom many call 'Burma's Nelson Mandela' should be released and the military regime should end its attacks on civilians," the letter said.


The celebrity letter campaign was spearheaded by the Human Rights Action Center and the U.S. Campaign for Burma, both based in Washington.

Intensifying repression in the impoverished Southeast Asian state has also drawn the attention of U.S. first lady Laura Bush, who personally telephoned the U.N. secretary-general last week to express concerns about a crackdown on dissidents.

On Tuesday, Bush told a small group of reporters in an interview at the White House that she hoped to raise Myanmar's profile at the U.N. General Assembly later this month.

why MK looks so sad :'(



NEW YORK - You see a tabloid shot of Mary-Kate Olsen and think, "Why does she look so depressed?" Well, there's a reason for that.

"I don't want my picture taken," the 21-year-old actress tells Entertainment Weekly magazine. "The only time I think it's OK is at a red-carpet event or a photo shoot.

"So every time I see paparazzi, I cover my face so they don't get a picture, and I'm just 'the mean person who doesn't smile.'"

Olsen, whose waiflike figure has made her a target of media scrutiny, avoids public displays of attention.

"I would love to be able to swim in the ocean in Malibu," she says. "But that is asking for a bikini shot. That's inviting something that I don't want to happen. I don't need to be on a 'Who's Skinny, Who's Fat, Who's Looking Healthy, Who's Not Eating?' list."

After a hiatus from acting, Olsen who rose to fame on TV's "Full House" in a shared role with twin sister Ashley will portray an alluring Christian girl on Showtime's "Weeds." Her 10-episode arc begins Sept. 17.

She also returns to the big screen in "The Wackness," co-starring Ben Kingsley. The film is slated for release next year.

"There's definitely been times in my life when I just turned to people and said, 'I'm done, this is too much for me, this is too overwhelming,'" Olsen says.

She's in a healthy frame of mind these days.

"Mentally, physically, I feel pretty on top of my game right now," Olsen says. "Talk to me next week, I don't know. Today, I feel good."

rolling stone mag wants 50 to go away too




4.5/5


There is no bigger lie on Graduation than when Kanye West claims he doesn't "try hard," as he does on the single "Can't Tell Me Nothing." West tries extremely hard at everything he does. And unlike his hip-hop and rock peers -- most of whom want Grammys and good reviews as much as he does -- he's unafraid to tell you.
On Graduation, West tries hard to address the problems on his first two albums, and succeeds: The new disc is tighter than Late Registration (fifty-one minutes long), with no skits (thank heavens) and less ornate production. None of the beats clobber you as immediately as "Jesus Walks" or "Gold Digger," but most of them improve on every listen: This is an album that you first like, then love. "Good Morning" elevates from a gentle hook to a perfectly chosen Jay-Z sample; "Barry Bonds" is a mix-tape song with a moaning groove that you could listen to for weeks; and on "Flashing Lights" and "Stronger," West single-handedly takes hip-hop back to its pre-Run-DMC disco days.

As a lyricist, West will never possess the pure cool or formal mastery of his mentor Jay-Z, but he's grown as a writer. (See the off-kilter, dreamlike "I Wonder.") And given the lousy year hip-hop has had, the music needs his spazzed-out, neurotic crea-tivity more than ever. As for the rest of you rappers: Try harder.

3.5/5

I ain't fresh out the hood/ I'm still in the hood," 50 Cent rhymes in "Fully Loaded Clip," feeling the heat even if he just sold 5 million copies of The Massacre a couple of years ago. He's out to prove he's everything he used to claim ("Still in da club, still sipping bub") while rocking "more whips than a runaway slave." Like The Massacre, Curtis divides between hard songs ("Man Down," "Fire," "I'll Still Kill") and soft songs ("Follow My Lead"), for the first time letting guests sing most of the hooks. Fiddy revisits old streets in "Straight to the Bank," produced by Ty Fyffe and Dr. Dre, while "Peep Show" brings back Eminem.

"My Gun Go Off" has a metal-guitar hook a la "Party Like a Rock Star," "I'll Still Kill" lets Akon thug out, and the summer jam "I Get Money" takes off on Naughty by Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray." The down side? The I-need-love pop tunes are not getting any better, even with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake in the stripper ditty "AYO Technology."

"Follow My Lead" is an inexplicable Robin Thicke duet ("Like Janet Jackson said, I miss you much/I really wanna feel your touch"), and "Amusement Park" is even sillier ("Watch me as I pull a rabbit out my hat/It won't be a rabbit, it'll be a gat"). Much better is "All of Me," with Mary J. Blige. Wailing, "I got a feeling like I'm fiending on crack," Blige steals the show without even trying.

Lindsay's Hollywood Career: May it Rest In Peace



File this photo under "Things That Won't Happen Again: Lindsay Lohan getting an acting award."

Insiders are saying that LiLo really did kill her acting career.

The official industry shunning of the rehabbing bad girl began this week with the deletion of all of her scenery-chewing moments (drinking, swearing, slutting around and having screamie-mimi hissy fits) from the promo for the DVD release of "Georgia Rule." Only her co-stars Felicity Huffman and Jane Fonda appear in the commercial for the new DVD. Ouch. That's gotta hurt.

However, the DVD reportedly contains about 17 minutes of special features such as the stars - Huffman, Fonda and maybe even Lohan - talking about their roles. Buy it now. It's destined to become a real Lohan's Dead Movie Career collector's item.

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's marriage: Over?



Hollywood may be infamous for their 'happily ever after' movies but in reality its anything but. Gwyneth Paltrow and her hubby Chris Martin, who have always been really private about their marriage, may be headed to divorce court.

According to Ok! magazine, during a recent four-hour trip to a salon, Gwyneth spoke about Chris for "less than five total minutes, always quickly changing the topic to her kids Apple and Moses." Those present also say she seemed very "vague and unenthusiastic" during those brief seconds when her marriage was discussed."

A naked photo of "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens has been making the rounds on the Internet and TMZ can confirm that it's real.

In a statement to TMZ, Hudgens' rep says, "This was a photo which was taken privately. It is a personal matter and it is unfortunate that this has become public." The National Enquirer was the first to report of the photo's existence, and it has since surfaced on various blogs across the net.

Hudgens, 18, is dating her "HSM" co-star, Zac Efron.

Brad Pitt - “V Magazine” Fall 2007

Brad Pitt takes the Fall 2007 cover of V MAGAZINE. Here are some highlights from the V magazine interview by Christopher Bollen:

I know you’re in Prague right now, but the Fourth of July was yesterday. Did you celebrate it? No, we missed it here. But when you have four kids, every day is the Fourth of July.

Has becoming a father transformed your life? Yeah. It’s hilarious. It’s the funniest, most lovely thing I’ve ever taken on. And the biggest pain in the ass as well [laughs] And I couldn’t go back. I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
Do you find it upsetting how the media still has an obsessive interest in linking Jen and Angelina? It’s so manufactured. We don’t pay attention to it. I hear that they drag my mo into it. She doesn’t deserve any of this. She is the most open, loving woman you’ll ever come across. They make things up and make money off of it. I am surprise about that.
There is a popular idea that you lured the paparazzi to Africa when Angelina gave birth to spotlight problems there. Was that really purposeful? It’s fourfold. For one, we know that’s going to happen so it becomes a plus. It’s all about cost and gain, plusses and minuses. Two, and most importantly, we loved the idea of our daughter being born on another continent, something she’ll be able to have roots in as well and want to explore as she gets older. That was the preeminent factor for us. Three, we knew that they had very strong privacy laws there. And we knew there was going to be a huge bounty on our heads and we were going to get very little peace unless we went to a place like that. And four, it happened to be a place that we loved.
The Fall 2007 issue of V Magazine featuring Brad Pitt is priced at $8.95/pop and hits newsstands on Friday, September 7th.

Blind Item: The Bad Joke

Blind Item: The BAD JOKE

This man is affiliated with hip-hop and appears happy-go-lucky and the life of the party.

When he first started out, he was pro-black; funny how times change.

Now he's gone Hollywood, and that lovable act is just that -- an act -- and he has no qualms about beating a woman in the streets, in full view of everyone, but due to his manufactured image, you would never guess that he's a batterer behind closed doors.

As for his pro-black stance, that's a joke too. He has baby mama drama and he's never done anything for his black kids yet a woman recently gave birth to his first biracial child and all of a sudden, he's "father of the year."

He was telling his boys, he was thinking about opening up a trust fund for this new baby and he's going to be in this baby's life, unlike he was with his black kids.

And, a few of his longtime friends are now former friends. They are disgusted with his behavior and don't want to have anything to do with him despite his celebrity, they consider him a "bad joke."

Mary-Kate Olsen’

MK tells the industry mag that she’s in a healthy frame of mind these days. “There’s definitely been times in my life when I just turned to people and said, ‘I’m done, this is too much for me, this is too overwhelming,’” she says. “Mentally, physically, I feel pretty on top of my game right now,” Olsen says. “Talk to me next week, I don’t know.

Stephen Colbert article in Vanity Fair

From the October 2007 issue of Vanity Fair magazine:

The Man In the Irony Mask
Like Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat, Stephen Colbert so completely inhabits his creation--the arch-conservative blowhard host of The Colbert Report, his Daily Show spin-off hit--that he rarely breaks character. As Colbert's new book, I Am America (And So Can You!), is published, SETH MNOOKIN gets a revealing interview with the real thing: a master comedian, forever altered by family tragedy.

Teedra Moses added to to tour with Alicia Keys, Common, and Erykah Badu



The 80s-flavored songstress, Teedra Moses, has been added to the Heineken Red Star Tour featuring Common, Erykah Badu and Alicia Keys. She joins the remaining six cities of the tour starting with Detroit, Michigan. Teedra will be performing songs from her critically acclaimed 2004 debut, COMPLEX SIMPLICITY, as well as select cuts from her forthcoming sophomore effort, THE YOUNG LIONESS. People Magazine proclaims, “[She] smoothly blends ‘80s R&B with contemporary hip-hop soul. The result is an alluring, oh-so-sensual sound that is at once familiar and fresh, old, and new school. And USA TODAY touts, “All her songs seem to have an undercurrent of realism that raises them above the typical love themes.” Teedra has written tracks for Mary J Blige (“So Lady”), Nivea (“Still In Love”), Christina Milian (“Dip It Low”), Trina (“Here We Go”), and Macy Gray (“Finally Made Me Happy” & “Ghetto”). In addition to her writing prowess, she is featured on albums by The Bravehearts, Ying Yang Twins and Raphael Saadiq. “This is a great opportunity to share the stage with so many talented people that I respect and admire. I applaud Heineken for putting a focus on Soul Music during a climate when most companies wouldn't,” says Teedra.

Shanna & Travis -- Still Going Strong-ish



They went into dinner holding hands, but Shanna and Travis didn't look quite so happy on the way out.

TMZ caught the on-again-off-again-who-cares-again couple at Nobu last night -- arriving in Barker's sick ride -- with a fresh-faced Shanna gripping onto her sometimes estranged husband's hand.

After a really quick bite the couple left, looking a lot less couple-y. Travis stormed ahead of Shanna, and when our photog asked if they were working on a third child together, a now angry Barker defiantly shouted "No!"

Rupaul On Mariah (MEAN)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Drag performer Ru Paul is not disgruntled about her waning star status. Not at all. The sincere, mostly-monotone performer knows that once an audience eats a celeb up, it can just as easily spit her out. Just ask Mariah Carey.

"I love a big, messy, clumsy idiot," RuPaul hoots from her hometown of New York City. "Love that! Love that about her!" As she gushes about the diva's wicked range - asking if we've heard the exclusive outtake from her "The Emancipation of Mimi" breakthrough album and a leaked pre-'90s demo - the most logical question to ask Ru is whether her shoe closet can compete with Carey's.

"No-no-no! I have a lot of clothes, but I don't really do drag unless I'm getting paid. I guess she doesn't either." She pauses and then backpedals: "No, no - she lives in drag."

Ru Paul performs Sept. 14th at Menjo's Nightclub, 928 W. McNichols Road, Detroit.

Seacrest possibly singing and/or dancing at the Emmys

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In a conference call with reporters yesterday, which I just read about in The Hollywood Reporter this morning, Emmy host Ryan Seacrest said that the Sept. 16 telecast will open with a musical number, and "that musical number, as you can well imagine, will be like nothing you've seen in years past." The good news: that should rule out another round of "Emmy Idol."

What do you think this mystery musical number will be? Seacrest says he "may or may not" take part in it, depending on his confidence level on Emmy night. So, fingers crossed, that means it's not American Idol-related. I'm secretly hoping concerned it will be a High School Musical spoof, since Fox likes to appeal to the young folk...

Beyoncé’s Wedding: Jay-Z Says, “One Day Soon”

When will Beyoncé, 26, and boyfriend of more than four years Jay-Z, 37, finally say "I Do"?

"One day soon — let's leave it at that," the usually tight-lipped rapper told reporters earlier today at a press conference in Las Vegas, where he announced plans to open his third 40/40 Club at the luxury Palazzo hotel.

Would they tie the knot in Sin City?

"I don’t know," he said. "It’s kind of comfortable here. If [Palazzo President Rob Goldstein] throws in the ring, who knows?”

At least they'd have somewhere to celebrate: His new $20 million, 24,000-square-foot club — slated to open December 20 — will come complete with 24-karat gold and platinum floors, 85 plasma TVs and -- count 'em! -- five VIP rooms.

“Las Vegas is like no other place in the world," he said.

In fact, he says he may even snap up digs there eventually.

"I’m going to ask [Goldstein] for advice," Jay-Z said. "He’s pretty good with the real estate. We’ll see what happens.”

Lindsay, Dad: Reunited and It Feels "Amazing"

by Tina Dirmann
Thu, 6 Sep 2007 05:29:03 PM PDT

With each having stared down their demons in recent months, Lindsay Lohan and her estranged father took their first steps toward patching an often rocky relationship.

Michael Lohan traveled to Utah Thursday to visit his 21-year-old daughter, who greeted him in the parking lot of the Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center.

"The moment Lindsay saw Michael, she started running and jumped into her father's arms," says an eyewitness to the reunion. "Her father hugged her and swung her around. Lindsay was so happy. It was very emotional."

Michael, who hasn't seen Lindsay in about three years, spent several hours with his daughter, catching up and trying to heal old wounds, a source at Cirque Lodge confirmed to E! Online.

Reached for comment after the Thursday afternoon visit, Michael, normally very chatty with the press, refused to reveal any details.

But the Lohan patriarch was clearly overjoyed.

"I can't comment on my relationship with my daughter," he said. "But [the reunion] was amazing."

A recovering addict, who spent two years in prison on a variety of charges before getting out in March, Michael has voiced support for his firstborn, who is in her third rehab stint this year and faces her own time behind bars on drunken-diving and cocaine charges.

The elder Lohan, finalized his acrimonious divorce from Lindsay's mom, Dina, last month.

He is making up for the time he missed during Cirque's Family Week, when the facility normally allows relatives to visit. Michael said Dina never told him about the visiting days, so the rehab is making an exception to allow him to visit this week.

More visits are planned for the week. Michael, who had to get permission from his probation officer to leave his home state and visit his daughter in Utah, plans to stay until Saturday.

Toronto Diary: Top 10 Movies to Watch

Toronto – Too many movies, not enough time. That's the dilemma confronting anyone, whether a critic or just a film fan, lucky enough to attend the annual Toronto International Film Festival.

During the 10-day event, which kicks off Thursday night, 349 movies will unspool. Hollywood studios use Toronto to launch movies, mostly due out later this fall or during the holiday season, that they hope will be contenders come awards season.

Given that factor, the glamour quotient here is high – with Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney and Brad Pitt all due to drop into town briefly to promote their starring vehicles.

Here are 10 titles boasting marquee names at Toronto that are – at least before I see 'em – on my must-see list:

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford: The title is the spoiler here. Brad Pitt saddles up as the Old West's most notorious outlaw, who is eventually shot dead by a member (Casey Affleck) of his own gang. Possible uh-oh factor: the 160-minute running time.

Rendition: In this sure-to-be controversial drama that delves into American-condoned torture of terrorism suspects imprisoned abroad, Reese Witherspoon plays a woman whose Egyptian-American husband (Omar Metwally) is put behind bars while on a trip overseas. Jake Gyllenhaal costars.

Eastern Promises: Star Viggo Mortensen and director David Cronenberg follow up 2005's stunning A History of Violence with another crime thriller, this one about Russian gangsters in London. Naomi Watts costars.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age: Great Cate, also known as Cate Blanchett, returns to the commanding role of England's first female monarch, a part which propelled her to stardom in 1998's Elizabeth. Shekhar Kapur again directs this continuation of the story.

Michael Clayton: George Clooney plays a hotshot Manhattan lawyer who begins to question his life and choices in a corporate thriller. Screenwriter Tony Gilroy, the wiz behind all three Bourne films, makes his directing debut here. 

Lars and the Real Girl: I'd see talented Ryan Gosling even if he was just reading off his grocery list. But in this quirky-sounding comic drama, he portrays a small-town oddball whose new girlfriend – they met on line – is a full-sized doll.

Atonement: Ravishing Keira Knightley pairs up for another literary adaptation with director Joe Wright, for whom she starred in 2005's Pride & Prejudice. This drama about a troubled British family is based on a best-selling novel by Ian McEwan.

Lust, Caution: After striking box office gold with homosexual lust with 2005's Brokeback Mountain, director Ang Lee showcases the heterosexual kind, and lots of it, in an NC-17 rated drama set in mid-century Hong Kong and Shanghai. Joan Chen and Tony Leung Chiu Wai star.

Margot at the Wedding: Playing estranged sisters, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh let long-simmering conflicts come to a boil in a comedy from Noah Baumbach, the writer-director behind The Squid and the Whale (and who's wed to Leigh). Jack Black costars.

I'm Not There: The times they are a-changin', but Bob Dylan still remains a figure of mystery. Singular director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) uses not one, but six actors (including Cate Blanchett) to portray Dylan during various periods in the troubadour's career. Christian Bale, Richard Gere, Julianne Moore and Heath Ledger costar.

Alba Has Sexiest Walk? No Way, Say Scientists!


Last week the Daily Telegraph released results of a very sexy scientific study claiming that Jessica Alba has the sexiest walk in the world. Alba's 25-inch waist and 36-inch hips, said the study, produced the sexiest strut, ranking her higher than Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss and even historical hottie Marilyn Monroe.

But according to Cambridge University Professor Richard Weber, who worked on the mathematical equation, Alba wasn't the winner. Weber was commissioned to determine the sexiest swagger by Clarion Communications, a PR firm that reps a hair removal product. He says the reported results are bogus -- Angelina Jolie is actually the sexiest strutter.

Adds scientist Ben Goldacre, writer for the Guardian, Clarion already had a winner in mind when it commissioned the study. Goldacre was told by a Clarion rep that in order to highlight the product, they wanted "Beyonce to come out on top followed by other celebrities with curvy legs such as J-Lo and Kylie, and celebrities like Kate Moss and Amy Winehouse to be at the bottom -- e.g., skinny and pale unshapely legs are not as sexy."

The nerve!According to a survey of 800 men, and Weber's mathematical estimations, Beyonce was actually ranked fourth and Angelina Jolie was the first place pick. Alba ranked 7th in the survey -- near the bottom -- but was chosen by Clarion as the winner for her "shapely curves and smooth, glossy legs," according to a Veet press release.

Said Weber, "The Clarion press release was not approved by me and is factually incorrect and misleading in suggesting there has been any serious attempt to do mathematics here. I do not endorse what the press release says."

For the first time, Sin City (specifically, the Palms Casino Resort) will welcome the network's flagship event — but that's not the only thing that's different. For the Sept. 9 ceremony, producers chose to stray from the traditional auditorium setup, planning a tighter, two-hour show with Timbaland as ''maestro,'' two alternating stages, performances in hotel suites and clubs, and collaborations that get back to what MTV is supposed to be aboutthe music. ''We wanted to go intimate, very much focused on talent and celebrating the year in music, but then also injecting a fun party vibe by going around to these different suites' parties,'' says executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic. LED projection screens, bars that double as walkways, and an MTV logo lit with 1,500 light bulbs are just some of the details of this year's setup.

Blondie singer Debbie Harry once took sheep embryo injections to maintain her young looks.

The 62-year-old claimed that she got the idea from a Swiss clinic in Montreux.

"I thought: 'Wow, this is so logical - you have fresh cells'. I was the youngest person that had ever done it," the Sun quoted Harry, as saying.

"They made the injections from the embryos of black sheep and they would take from different organs in different embryos - from the liver, the glands and from the bone - in order to make up the injections. There were 11 injections in all," she said.

That's not all the 'Blondie' singer has done to stay young, for she revealed that she even had a 'facial surgery' and now take the controversial hormone treatment HGH keep old age at bay.

"At one time age was considered wisdom and prestige. But now nobody really values age the way they did," she said.

THE DOPE SHOW

Paves must've been mad at Jessica Simpson last night, because that weave looked used and abused. It looks like he fished a wig out of the trash can, cut it up and put it on homegirl's head. She ain't helping matters by pulling out drag queen poses and dopey faces. The reporter probably asked her what her name was and bitch couldn't remember.

Anyway, here's Jessica at a party for W Magazine last night in NYC.

PARIS (Reuters) - French actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg has been hospitalized after suffering a brain hemorrhage but is expected to return home soon, her partner told French radio on Thursday.

"She's doing very, very well," film director Yvan Attal said, adding that he thought she would be released from hospital by the weekend.

He did not say exactly when she had been admitted to hospital, but news television channel LCI said it had been in the night from Wednesday to Thursday.

French media also reported she had suffered a waterskiing accident recently and had been complaining of headaches.

Gainsbourg, 36, the daughter of the late French singer and songwriter Serge Gainsbourg and British actress Jane Birkin, has starred in more than 30 films and last year released the critically acclaimed album 5:55.
