Timberlake pleads for more videos on MTV

At the MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Timberlake is the equivalent of Jack Nicholson at the Oscars.

Though just 26-years-old, Timberlake appeared like an old veteran at the VMAs in Las Vegas. Chris Brown's impressive dance routine had Timberlake feeling his age.

"Nobody likes to be reminded that they're getting older," Timberlake said while accepting his award for best male artist. "And whatever (18-year-old R&B singer) Chris Brown just did, reminded me how much I'm getting older, 'cause damn."

Timberlake added he was excited to see a new generation of artists, a pronouncement that a 26-year-old former boy-band member can only make at the youth-obsessed VMAs.

Timberlake also twice asked MTV to revert to its video-playing ways of the ol' days.

"Play more damn videos. We don't want to see the Simpsons on reality television," said Timberlake, referring to Jessica and Ashley Simpson. "Play more videos."

MTV Cancelled The Real Performance At The Last Minute!!



MTV TO BRITNEY: DONT BE TOO CONTROVERSIAL

You guys I just got some leaked information from someone close to the MTV Studios.

Britney Spears was to perform under the magic of Chris Angel... but MTV freaked out at the last minute finding out what Britney was actually going to do.

Supposidly, what Britney and Chris were planning was to do a set of mirrors and flotation. But when told to the Palms Hotel/Casino... the hotel flipped.

Insurance was the main problem, and the stage couldn't support the performance. MTV also freaked at the last minute because of their fear of being "too controversial" during the performance. Britney and Chris were infact furious with MTV's sad excuse and told Britney to change the performance at the last minute.

Britney's original performance was to infact appear and disappear. To float through the air... and for much mature dancing.

X17 has uncovered the truth behind Brit's less than energetic performance tonight.

Check it out -- we're all wondering why Britney looked like she was doing a dry run rather than a full-on VMAs gig tonight and X17 has the answer!

A source tells X17 Brit found out about Sarah Silverman's crappy line about Britney's babies just moments before she took the stage to perform "Gimme More." Needless to say, Britney was PISSED! ... as any mom would be. Britney was so upset she walked through her performance just to get it over with (despite encouragement from her friends, including Sam who was apparently yelling at Sarah backstage) to skip out on it all together). She held up her end of the bargain and got a major slap in the face from Sarah.

Chin up, Brit -- you'll rock our worlds when you're ready and Sarah's dating Jimmy Kimmel -- how great can her life be ...

Security: Cops on the Hunt for Kid Rock After VMA Fight

COPS ON THE HUNT FOR KID ROCK!



TMZ has learned that the Las Vegas Police Department are on the hunt for Kid Rock after he allegedly "clocked" Tommy Lee at the MTV VMAs in Las Vegas Sunday night.

According to security at the Palms Hotel, where the awards took place, the LVPD has asked for Rock's room number at the hotel and any leads they might have regarding his current whereabouts.

Details as to what started the fight are still sketchy, but an eyewitness at the awards tells TMZ that "Tommy got it pretty bad."

Both Kid and Lee were escorted out of the awards by Palms security moments after the altercation took place. 

Maybe this is why:



Being thrown out

 

UPDATE:

TMZ has learned that Palms owner George Maloof was questioned by police, who was overheard telling cops, "I have no idea."

According to the AP, rap producer Rich Nice was an eyewitness. He says that although Kid Rock threw the only punch that landed, it was Tommy Lee who started the fight. "It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him," said Nice, who was two tables away. "And Tommy Lee kind of antagonized him. And then when Tommy Lee stood up, it looked a little weird, like 'Yo, what?"'

"When Tommy stands up is when Kid hit him the first time with a backhand," Nice continued. "And then Tommy Lee looked like he was trying to get at him to aggressively retaliate and then Kid Rock hits Tommy Lee again -- bong. And then security grabs Tommy Lee in a headlock and pulls him off."

Apparently they say Sara Evans does everyone she comes in contact with



Husband Asks Singer to Admit Affairs


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Country star Sara Evans' husband is asking the singer in a court filing whether she was romantically involved with nearly a dozen people, including Kenny Chesney, Richard Marx and former "Dancing With The Stars" partner Tony Dovolani.

The 118-page document was filed Tuesday in Williamson Country chancery court as part of Evans' divorce from Craig Schelske, according to The Tennessean newspaper.

It asks Evans to state under oath and penalty of perjury whether or not she admits to "an affair/sexual relationship/romantic involvement" with Chesney, Marx, Dovolani or any member of her band. It also seeks to find out if there was any relationship with Brad Arnold, Matt Roberts, Todd Harrell or Chris Henderson — all members of the group 3 Doors Down.

The questions are included in a document used to obtain information from opposing parties during legal proceedings.

Evans has not yet responded, and the court filing provides no evidence that she had relationships with any of the named people.

John Hollins Sr., Evans' attorney, told the newspaper he could not comment because of a court-issued gag order. Evans' publicist did not return calls. Schelske's attorney, who is also bound by the gag order, did not return a call seeking comment.

A publicist for Chesney and a former manager for Marx declined to comment. Calls left for Universal/Republic, the record label of 3 Doors Down, were not immediately returned.

Evans filed for divorce the day after a blowup between the couple in a Los Angeles restaurant, after which police were called to the scene.

In previous court filings, Schelske alleged that he had learned of his wife's "intimate relationship" during the dinner.

A hearing in the case is set for Sept. 28 in Hickman County.

Evans made her recording debut in 1997, and her 2000 album "Born to Fly" went double platinum.

Bjork Plots Another New Album Before Year's End

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Bjork may just be releasing a second album this year. On the heels of May's "Volta," the Icelandic singer posted a note on her Web site confirming that she recorded "a special live session album" with her current touring band "a few weeks ago" at Olympic Studios in London.

A Bjork spokesperson says "we don't really have more details at this point," but all indications are the album will be out before the end of the year.

Bjork tells Billboard.com that the group -- which includes LFO electronics wizard Mark Bell and Lightning Bolt drummer Brian Chippendale, as well as a 10-piece, all-female brass section from Iceland -- did some session-style recording in April in California. "Already we have come a long way," she says. "I still feel we have potential to grow even more."

Bjork says that large band, which plays tomorrow (Sept. 8) at the Virgin Festival in Toronto, gives her a tremendous amount of flexibility. "I started with arranging my old stuff to brass," she explains, "seeing what of it would work. A lot of the songs that were previously done with strings turned out even better with brass. Having a keyboardist means I can do songs with harpsichord, clavichord, celeste and voice only -- the more lyrical side of my songs.

"But having two guys on electronics and one drummer means that I can go as macho as it is possible for me (and) do the hooligan songs," she continues. "The brass helps out, with that obviously being quite 'butch,' but also makes it easy for me to do musically complex numbers. So overall the importance is on dynamism -- really, really quiet songs and really, really loud ones."

Bjork has dates booked into December for what she calls "the longest tour I have done" -- including a stop at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas, Madison Square Garden in New York City and the TIM Festival in Brazil. She says she plans to be on the road a total of 18 months, which will take her deep into 2008.

'Possession' aka 'Addicted' trailer starring Sarah Michelle Gellar



I don't think this is an official trailer, since it's like 3 minutes long and it
says the movie is still called "Addicted" (it has been retitled "Possession"),
but it's still the first look at this movie. What do you all think? It could
be crappy, but I will watch anything SMG is in (I even suffered through "The

BRITNEY IS WASTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(or crazy?)

And there's a medical emergency ... pumping of the stomach happening! (By the way, not mine).


"And of course I can't leave you without a Britney update. Apparently five minutes after her performance that bitchy blogger Perez Hilton had already slammed her on his site. With all the Blackberry action happening it didn't take long to get back to her, and that's when my sneaky source found her in the bathrooms with assistant Ali Sims having a mini-breakdown!"

Live from the event

This just in! A spy saw Britney crying in the ladies loo. More details coming soon.

Britney mimed through her show opener and gave a pretty average performance of her new single 'Gimme More'. It was a really half-hearted, tepid performance ... maybe that hangover proved too hard to beat. Take a look at Britney's performance and tell us what you think..... "

Britney and other stars About Britneys Performance


Britney -
Access Hollywood has learned that an hour after opening the VMAs, Britney, who was then dressed in a white T-shirt and white fedora, was asked by USA Today’s William Keck how she felt her performance went.

“Good, thank you,” she replied.

Kayne West
“I have no words.”

Common
"It felt like her heart wasn't in it. It didn't feel like she was really goin' for it. It just felt like she was there, man," he added. "There's so much talk about her personal life, you wanna see her come out on top. She eventually still can. But that performance, I don't think it was what we were lookin' for ... to light it up."

50 Cent called Brit's performance a "highlight," saying, "I told you outside, she was gonna be the hottest thing, and she did it, she worked it out. Yeah, she had a big production, things started coming out of the sky." But then he changed the subject to another performer: "Chris brown was hot too, he jumped from table to table."

Nicole Scherzinger - "It's hard because being an artist like myself, I don't like it when I'm not in front of the house and I can't hear the monitors properly. ... I dunno, it was cool, I was just sending her good vibes the whole time."

Live from the VMAs: Cisco and "L.C." Keepin' It on the DL

 

It was time for a bathroom break, and in the hallway, I ran into a friend. "You want some good stuff from last night's parties?" She asked me. Like she really had to ask. So, here's what she told me:

Lauren "L.C." Conrad made out with Cisco "Balls" Adler during Christina Aguilera's party at LAX.

"You really saw them making out," I asked of the odd coupling.

"I did," she said. "And I heard Brody Jenner was pissed."

Oh, Hills drama! Silly kids!

Also at LAX were Paris Hilton and Adrian Grenier. My friend said they were doing plenty of bumping and grinding while dancing together. But nope, there was no lip-lockin'. Maybe they really are just friends...

"Contrary to internet rumors, I did NOT make out with Cisco Adler in Vegas this weekend. "

To which one of her delusional fans replied ...

"i believe in you!

Salma Hayek already married?



A couple of weeks ago there was a story that Salma Hayek was planning a triple wedding to take place in three different cities that would put Eva Longoria’s over-the-top nuptuals to shame. The heavily pregnant Mexican actress was going to hold ceremonies in her hometown of Mexico, in Paris where her fiance, Francois-Henri Pinault, is from, and in LA.

All that might be for show, because there are small clues Salma is dropping that suggest she’s already married.

On a visit to tony L.A. department store Fred Segal on August 15… when it was time to pay for her purchases, Salma plopped down a Visa card issued to Salma Hayek-Punault. Ten days later, during the baby shower at ther Hollywood Hills home, the Oscar nominee kept calling Francois-Henri, who was there, her “husband.”

A civil ceremony makes sense, says an insider, explaining, “For Salma, the thought of having a baby out of wedlock was unacceptable.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, September 17, 2007]

The article says that Salma still plans on having her multiple weddings despite the fact that she might be already hitched.

TOMORROW’S ANOTHER DAY: While it was inevitable that Britney Spears’ VMAs performance would draw snarky comments from the celebrity-gossip press, industry veterans dismiss the pans as a non-factor in terms of their effect on first-week sales of her upcoming fifth studio album, due Nov. 13 from Jive. (9/10p)

Her single "Gimme More" has also jumped up to #23 on the mediabase charts. This means it will chart on the billboard hot 100 this week based on airplay alone. (To put that into perspective, Jennifer Lopez's new comeback single was released weeks earlier and already has a video, yet it's at #47)

Señor Bale doesn't like films?



Christian Bale
doesn’t like films.

The ‘American Psycho’ star - who first appeared in Steven Spielberg’s ‘Empire of the Sun’ aged just 12 - enjoys acting, but isn’t interested in watching movies.

Bale, 33, revealed: “I’m not a movie buff. It’s been an awfully long time since I’ve gone to a movie.“I have nothing against them. I would just say that I’ve never been an avid fan, and would never consider them essential to my life.

I love acting in them, I just avoid them.”

The ‘Batman Begins’ actor - who will reprise his role as the Caped Crusader again in ‘The Dark Knight’ - has also admitted he was never very interested in the comic book superhero.

He said: “I was never a Batman fan”.

Bale’s latest movie, ‘3:10 to Yuma’, is a cowboy adventure co-starring Russell Crowe, but he claims he knows nothing about westerns.

He added to Britain’s The Times newspaper: “I feel people expect me to have a great knowledge of westerns, but I don’t.”

December Boys Melbourne premiere



As Daniel Radcliffe aptly put it, nothing anyone says can prepare you for a movie premiere. The noise, the emotion, the people - mere words seem inadequate to convey the experience, yet it is words that we must rely on.The atmosphere is overwhelming, even oppressive at times. From the piercing screams of the fans to the incessant flash of cameras, the whole scene is somewhat surreal.

For three young fans, the Melbourne premiere of December Boys became a little too much to bear. Plucked from the suffocating throng of eager (female) fans, these three boys were ushered inside the Rivoli Theater, their mother in close pursuit. While there were many celebrities attending the premiere, these boys had eyes for only one - Daniel Radcliffe, their Harry Potter favorite, and the undisputed star of the afternoon event.

One of the fan-trio waited impatiently, standing on tip-toes as his eyes searched frantically for his hero, a picture of Radcliffe in his Potter guise, clutched tightly in his hands. To his right, his younger companion was not faring as well. With tears streaming down his face, the heady excitement of the day had taken its toll. As mother and officials attempted to sooth his distress, the final member of the fan-trio stood happily to one side.

Smiling and waving at passers by, the youngest brother reveled in the scene. Even if the intricacies of the scene were largely lost on this young fan, the excitement was infectious - he was meeting Harry Potter, and nothing else mattered at that moment.

While there were many sights and sounds (screaming certainly dominated Daniel's arrival) at the December Boys premiere, it was the contrasting emotions of these three young fans that epitomized the experience. This was more than just a premiere - it was a celebration, shared by Dan and his fans.

As Daniel finally navigated the fan-lined red carpet (signing many, many autographs along the way), the boys finally got to meet their idol. Dan kneeled to chat to the boys, and obliged them with that much-prized autograph. Bringing these three boys out of the crowd was a simple gesture, but it was the power of their reactions that made it special.

Daniel made his way over to me. I asked him what bit of advice might have prepared him for these kinds of events, to which he replied, "To be honest, nothing ever prepares you for stuff like this, because every time you get out of the car and you hear that scream, it always takes you by surprise. The best piece of advice that I've got I think is probably from my dad. He always says that when you meet someone you gotta shake their hand and you should get your hand out first. I think that's probably the best piece of advice I've ever been given."

So how can the premiere be summed up? In truth, it can't. The emotions and experiences of those present will vary dramatically. For the three brothers, it was a day they will never forget. For others, trapped at the rear of a crowd that began gathering over six hours before Daniel's arrival, it may have been something of a disappointment. Daniel was, as ever, personable and friendly, displaying the warmth, humor and energy which has won him so many fans across the world - something made even more impressive by his late arrival in Australia, and hectic media schedule in the preceding days.

It was an impossible, indescribable afternoon, and one that will be relived by Australian fans for many days and weeks to come. It was more than a premiere - it was about Dan and his fans, and the rest was a sideshow.

Anna Nicole Ex Sues Stern

Anna Nicole Smith's jailed ex-boyfriend Mark Hatten is suing the tragic model's lawyer partner Howard K. Stern, for "civil rights violations."

Hatten, who is currently behind bars for making criminal threats against Smith, alleges Stern tried to kill him seven years ago in a bid to "remove" him from Smith's life.

TMZ.com reports Hatten is seeking $100 million in damages from Stern, claiming he "tried his very best to try and murder plaintiff Hatten and make it look like an accidental death/overdose."

Hatten also alleges "hypnotizing plaintiff's fiance Anna Nicole Smith with Chloral Hydrate."

The lawsuit also names Stern and six other co-defendants, accusing them of slander.

Stern was Smith's partner up until her death of an accidental drug overdose in February.

Ike Turner and ex wife plan reality TV show

Tina Turner's ex-husband Ike is planning a new reality TV show with the ex-wife he accused of trying to poison him.

Ike Turner, 75, divorced 49-year-old Audrey Madison earlier this summer after claiming she tried to kill him with an overdose of prescription pills -- but now the quirky couple is back together.

And friends insist Turner and his colorful backing singer will be together forever, because she's the only woman who is "wilder than he is."

One source says, "He's been used to marrying groupies he could control."

As well as working on their relationship and pitching a new reality TV show, the couple is currently planning a tour of Europe.

Excerpts from a Q & A with Terrence Howard from New York magazine:

Do you align yourself with any party?
No, I firmly believe in what the Bible set out: that God’s kingdom is the real kingdom. And that king is superior to all other kings on the Earth. A lot of things that flawed mankind is trying to accomplish on the Earth—I think a lot of it is in vain, because we just don’t have the capacity to rule ourselves successfully. Six thousand years of mankind’s rulership has pretty much proved that.

Kanye West: MTV Exploited Britney & Me

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kanye West, never known for holding his tongue, is railing against MTV after leaving empty-handed from Sunday's Video Music Awards, charging that the network misled him – and also exploited Britney Spears.

"They exploited Britney in helping to end her career," West told deejay JJ at New York radio station Z100 on Monday. "When Britney was opening [the VMA telecast], near the end, I felt so bad for her. I said, 'Man, it's a dirty game. This game will chew you up and spit you out.'" (Listen to the interview here.)

The rapper doesn't just take umbrage with the handling of Spears, whose performance has been maligned by critics and fans alike.

West tells Z100 he felt misled and "betrayed" by the network, and has promised to never work with MTV again. The rapper says he's already cancelled planned appearances on TRL to promote his new album Graduation. Specifically, West takes issue with the way performances were set up – that he should have performed on the main stage and not from a private suite where many artists performed for small groups of fans throughout the telecast.

"I wasn't mad that I just didn't win any awards," West says. "For me, [MTV] made it seem like performing on the main stage was a bad thing, and the suites were just so great. It was my dream when I made 'Stronger' to open up the VMAs with a real power performance.

"And I just feel like I got betrayed by them," the rapper continues. "I feel like they tried to make it seem like I was so into everything that was going on in the show."

Another sticking point: Pamela Anderson's racy introduction on the telecast. (Anderson appeared in a music video for West's single "Touch the Sky.") Before West performed "Good Life" from his suite, the former Baywatch star told viewers, "One of the best times I've ever had was making out with the next performer in the middle of the desert. I think I had my tongue so far down his throat I could taste his fiancée – and I might need a repeat performance later tonight."

"I'm engaged, and I feel like it's disrespectful to my relationship," West says of Anderson's remarks, which he claims the network assured him would not happen.

When JJ pointed out that West was being pretty blunt by speaking out against MTV, the rapper responded in a characteristically unapologetic fashion: "I have a connection in the fans' heart that the press can't stop."

There was no immediate response from MTV. Stay tuned.

Paris Confirms Christina's Pregnancy & Paps Ask Christina About Britney's VMA Performance



TMZ cameras caught Paris Hilton, looking flapperific in a hot pink number at LAX Nightclub in the Luxor Hotel last night. Everything was going smoothly until she jumped the mic and blurted. “I want everyone to say congratulations to the most beautiful pregnant woman in the world, Christina Aguilera. You’re gorgeous!” *record scratch*

Problem is, Aguilera has never publicly confirmed her pregnancy! Xtina and hubby Jordan Bratman initially looked shocked, but then quickly recovered. Party on!



Saturday, September 8th. Who says that husbands never shop with their wives? In the case of this duo, it seems like that's purely myth, as Christina Aguilera's faithful husband dutifully shops with his woman at Maxfield and Fred Segal. When asked if she was excited about Britney's upcoming performance at the VMAs, Christina ever so quickly gave a fleeting thumbs up.

Body Language Breakdown: Lindsay and Michael Lohan

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Michael Lohan refused to comment on his recent reunion with daughter Lindsay after three years of estrangement, so Usmagazine.com asked body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass to analyze the pair’s interaction as they reconnected on the grounds of the Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center in rural Utah.

According to Dr. Glass, the Lohans started by taking it slow.

“At first she’s kind of leery and it shows,” she says. “She’s very stiff and her shoulders are rounded, her head is down. She’s unsure of herself."

Dr. Glass points out that the 21-year-old actress appears very childlike in the top photo taken on September 6. “She’s kind of regressed into that little girl instead of all that bravado,” she says. “He’s reaching out to her. She’s going to wait and see what he has to say.”

Well, apparently a lot can happen in three days. By September 9, the father and daughter appeared to be on better terms.

“She’s got her arms around him, and she’s holding the flower kind of like it’s a peace offering. I think they’re totally bonded,” says Dr. Glass.

“They’ve totally thrown all their past and all the hatred behind them and both made amends with each other.”

She added: “This is the start of a new life for both of them.”

Kelly Rowland to Re-Release Album

Sept 10, 2007

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sources tell me that Kelly Rowland has returned to the recording studio where she's recording some new tracks that her label plans to strip onto her CD, 'Ms. Kelly,' with intentions to re-release the album. The Destiny's Child singer released her sophomore solo record on July 3 to lackluster sales. The CD sold 83,700 copies in its first week despite the hit single, "Like This," which featured Eve. A rep for Rowland confirmed the plans. "We are planning to re-release the album later this fall," Columbia Records' Yvette Noel Schure told me via e-mail. Rowland's 2002 pop CD, 'Simply Deep,' was certified gold (500,000 units sold) in the United States and certified platinum (one million units sold) in the U.K.


Kelly, I can only root for the underdog for so long, help yourself too bb. LEAVE MATTHEW KNOWLES' MANAGEMENT.

J.C. Chasez Evades the Britney Question

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It’s okay, J.C., you can say it.

J.C. Chasez caught last night’s MTV Video Music Awards and was left impressed by many and unimpressed by, well, you can probably guess who.

But nice guy that he is, the former Mouseketeer dodged the question when OK! asked him at Jill Stuart's fashion show who he thought was the worst performer at last night’s VMAs. "Uh…yeah,” he paused. “I don’t even know how to approach that question!”

The singer wasn’t shy about his favorites though. Linkin Park gets thumbs-ups for their rockin’ performance, as does ex bandmate Justin Timberlake, who took home two Moon Men last night.

“Linkin Park – in my opinion, I just love the feel of their performance,” J.C. says. “It wasn’t overly close up on their face, it was shadows and felt like a light show. I also thought Timbaland and Justin did great.”

But nothing compares to Sarah Silverman and her unapologetic audacity. The comedienne took to the stage following Britney Spears’ universally reviled performance and blasted the troubled pop star, which was perfectly fine with J.C. because “she said what everybody was thinking at the time.”

“I thought she was amazing,” he says. “She was like this is where it is at right now, let’s not kid ourselves folks. I lost my mind, I loved it. I thought she was a show stopper.”

Extra Offers Second Chance to Britney

After last night’s disastrous VMA performance, the folks over at Extra want Britney Spears to give performing her new single “Gimme More” another try.

The show says they will open their studio stage up to her so that she can try to prove to everyone she is ready for her comeback.

Still no word on whether Britney will take them up on the offer.

Tommy Lee Speaks Out on Scuffle

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Soon after his off-camera scuffle Sunday night with KID ROCK, TOMMY LEE gave "The Insider" his side of the story while hanging out at the Noir nightclub at the Luxor in Las Vegas.

"I was minding myself and then he goes and punches me on the cheek," claims Tommy. "I was trying to be the bigger man, but he was acting childish."

He added that after Kid came up and punched him, he "was ready to go in the alley and kick his a$$. "I was about to put Kid in the emergency room when security grabbed me," says Tommy. "They said, 'If you move, we will break your arms.'"

Tommy went on to express why Kid probably acted the way he did, saying, "This is what people do when they have shi**y albums and their careers are going down the drain."

Kid Rock has a new album coming out October 9.

Meanwhile, Officer BILL CASSELL confirms to "The Insider" that Kid Rock was cited for misdemeanor battery for throwing a punch at Tommy Lee during ALICIA KEYS' performance at the MTV VMAs. Kid Rock will go to court in three to five weeks to enter a plea. Cassell said the maximum punishment would be a $500 fine and six months in jail.

Dina Lohan Responds To Jodie Foster’s Attack On Her Parenting!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In an exclusive interview with 24Sizzler.com, Dina Lohan is fighting back at Jodie Foster for her judgemental comments about Dina in an interview with Gotham magazine’s October 2007 issue, in which Jodie says, “Can I just ask, where is her mother? I mean, really, where is her mother?…When I was their age, there were no big 18-year-old stars… Now, we want the 17-year-olds so we can bleed them for all they’re worth and squeeze as much money as we possibly can out of them - and then their career will be over in something like three years.”

Well, get ready, Jodie!

Dina tells 24Sizzler.com of Jodie’s verbal attack on Dina’s parenting: “It really saddens me that a mom would comment on another mom without ever meeting me!”

Dina also exclusively tells 24Sizzler.com, “Ironically Lindsay’s talent was compared to Jodie Foster’s as a little girl! I don’t know what Jodie dealt with as a young Hollywood actress but I do know if it weren’t for her mother she would not be a successful actress today! I’m sure her mother made many sacrifices for her to be successful.”

Dina also blasts Jodie for butting in: “All we want as parents is to cultivate our children’s dreams ,whatever field they choose. She has no idea who we are and what we have dealt with! If she has a question to ask me, don’t ridicule me publicly! She should know how the press twists the truth! Don’t judge without facts!”

O hai girlfriend!! Justice with a snap!

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

There are a gazillion TV judges pontificating across the dial, but Judge David Young will be the first openly gay one when his show premieres today. So why does that matter?

On a serious level - and the judge does have spasms of somberness in between fits of song and funny riffs praising the joys of being professionally dressed - the 48-year-old former Miami prosecutor and judge hopes to be a role model for gay youth. He said he wished he could have seen a successful gay jurist on TV before he came out at the age of 34.

Instead, his epiphany occurred while he was sitting on a beach, reading "Coming Out Conservative," the memoir of longtime Republican fundraiser and activist Marvin Liebman, who announced he was gay at 67. "I read that and I felt, 'This could be me,' " Young said, foreseeing a lifetime of loneliness. "I just started crying and said, 'I don't want my life to be like that.' "

So while Akim Anastopoulo, a.k.a. "Extreme Akim," the celebrity judge of the syndicated "Eye for an Eye" courtroom TV show, wields a baseball bat from the bench to symbolize his blunt judicial philosophy, Young plans to swing a more subtle sort of weapon on his show: compassion - leavened with a show tune or two and a booty-shaking dance with his bailiff, Tawya Young (no relation). The two vamp through the show together like "Weight Watchers peanut butter and jelly," Young said. "I'll look at her, and she'll look at me and we'll go, 'Mmm-hmmm. Girlfriend.' " "If I were straight, I'd marry her," Young says on a promotional spot for the show.

Collapse )

From his official show website:

Judge David Young is a huge fan of Broadway musicals, and is an avid collector of penguin items. Young lives in Miami with his partner of 12 years, Judge Scott Bernstein, and their dog Maggie.

And the slogan for the show: "JUSTICE WITH A SNAP!" Oh brother!

10 Funniest MPAA Rating Reasons

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Once upon a time, movie ratings were limited to simple Gs, PGs and Rs. So it was helpful to parents and sensitive moviegoers when the MPAA decided to go the extra step beyond simple letter ratings and begin offering ratings reasons. Unfortunately, the people who write them appear to have a penchant for huffing paint, because a lot of the reasons are pretty damn goofy.

There are the long and unnecessarily wordy ones, like this Summer’s Superbad, which was “Rated R for pervasive crude and sexual content, strong language, drinking, some drug use and a fantasy/comic violent image - all involving teens.”

Then there are the overly vague turns of phrase they like to use, such as “Rated PG for thematic elements.” That’s the one and only ratings reason for the Bratz movie. Not to be outdone, The Rock’s The Game Plan has been “Rated PG for some mild thematic elements.”

"It's everywhere (the photos), but the thing is… mistakes happen and I'm just happy I can be there for her as a friend which is what she needs more than anything."

Billy even chimed in with his own thoughts: "People are going to make mistakes and when you make one you just gotta re-adjust and re-group and go back to life. That's what life is all about."

2007 Toronto International Film Festival - "Lars and the Real Girl" Press Conference

Ryan Gosling and the cast of "Lars and the Real Girl" sit down to talk about the new film.
***(+ Rachel and Ryan still a couple!)***



Although an impressive cast of actors graced the stage at this afternoon's press conference for Lars and The Real Girl, all anyone wanted to talk about was Bianca, the life-sized "star" of the film.

The movie is about a quiet young man who falls in love with an anatomically correct sex doll. While she doesn't utter a single line, according to the panellists, Bianca was a part of the cast.

"She was very dignified," said Emily Mortimer, who plays Lars' sister-in-law. "There's something about this doll that makes you look at yourself."

"I actually formed a bond with her," said Ryan Gosling, who plays the titular Lars. "She was a really calming presence."

Screenwriter Nancy Oliver, who penned episodes of the critically acclaimed television show Six Feet Under, said she was inspired by a job that brought her in contact with "perverse Web sites and lonely guys."

A producer brought the script to director Craig Gillespie, pitching it as "about a guy who falls in love with a sex doll." Gillespie put the script aside, but his wife read and recommended it to him.

Gosling said he was intrigued by a script that, while conceptually is funny, is actually a very emotional story about love that is "real even if it's not reciprocal."

Patricia Clarkson, who play' Lars' [and Bianca's] doctor, said she "was very excited to be in a movie with a blow-up doll."

But it's that term – blow-up doll – that provided a point of contention.

She was treated as a full-fledged member of the cast. For instance, they would not change her outfits in front of anyone, and Bianca even had her own handlers who would give her magazines to read between takes.

"She's not a blow-up doll," said Gosling. "She's very heavy."
"She's hard," said Clarkson.
"She blows Lars," said actor Paul Schneider, to a chorus of groans.

When moderator Elvis Mitchell enquired how the "role" of Bianca was cast, Gillespie explained that there's a factory in San Diego that makes the dolls, and "there's an endless array of choices."

Mortimer admitted that she was quite "shy" around the doll. "I didn't quite know how to deal with her."
"The doll, Bianca, is extremely life-life," said Schneider. "[She's] a state-of-the-art piece of work."

Kelli Garner, who plays the girl who loves Lars in real life, admitted, "I was really jealous of the doll."
"God, you guys had very complicated relationships [with the doll]," said an amazed Clarkson.

One reporter wanted to know what happened to Bianca after filming ended. It turns out there were in fact multiple dolls: Gillespie kept one and Gosling kept another.
Another reporter wanted to know where Gosling kept his doll.
"Well, it's not important…" he said to laughs. He later added his girlfriend, Rachel McAdams, doesn't like it lying around the house.

To Gillespie, Gosling got off the presser's best line: "I heard yours is dating Colin Farrell. Is that true?" 


*I'm beyond jealous my best friend got to be in this movie (Kelli). Definitely check this one out, it was such a great film.*

Justin Timberlake's Post-VMA Party with Jessica Biel ... and Mom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After Justin Timberlake's jammed-packed Sunday night, the multiple MTV Video Music Award winner, skipped the after-parties and opted for dinner with his two favorite ladies – his mom and his girlfriend Jessica Biel.

Timberlake and Biel sat side-by-side during the two-hour dinner with a group of friends at Tableau restaurant in the Wynn Las Vegas's Spa Tower. According to a fellow diner, the pair shared kisses and "were so lovey-dovey. They were always touching and being very sweet with one another and in front of Justin's mom."

At the end of dinner, the two, who were expected at parties all around town, called it a night. According to a source, Timberlake wasn't feeling well last night despite his high-energy performances.

On Monday it was reported that the singer was ordered by a doctor to rest his voice after suffering "vocal strain" inflicted during his VMA performance and months of rigorous touring. Two shows this week have been postponed as a result.

Kurt Sutter on Punisher 2 and Why Tom Jane Left

Collider.com has up an interview with new Punisher 2 scriptwriter Kurt Sutter where he gives his views on the film and why Tom Jane left the project. Good stuff...

What can you tell me about The Punisher? Is a straight continuation or is it a reboot like the new Hulk film?

Again, a little of both. It’s a reboot without discounting the events of the first Punisher. There are a lot of great blog sites that do a much better job at describing the story.

What is the biggest difference between this film and the last one? Except of course that there is a new leading man.

I’ll take this opportunity to say that I felt like Nick Santora and myself, who’s names were on the second big draft, got caught in the crossfire when Tom Jane was growing dissatisfied with the turn Punisher was taking. Tom lashed out at the script using it as his scapegoat for exiting the project. I’m not privy to the details, but I’d bet it had more to do with money than words. I like Tom Jane, I’ve had lunch with him, think he’s a decent guy. But I always felt that if Marvel really wanted to re-invent the franchise, you’d have to re-invent the Punisher. It would be like hiring Eric Bana or Bill Bixby for the Hulk reboot. Ray Stevenson is a terrific choice as Frank Castle. He’ll bring a depth and irony to the role that has not yet been explored by any other actor. I also think Lexi Alexander will shoot the hell out of it. From what I’ve been told, much of my draft is still intact and Halloway and Marcum’s rewrite is great. They have become Marvel’s go-to guys.

What will the tone of the film be like?

Tone? Ummmm, dark and violent.


Stay tuned right here for more on Punisher 2 as it comes out.

Source: Comicbook Resources

I call SERIOUS BULLSHIT on the writer's comments about Jane. Thomas was extremely devoted to the franchise and the character. The problem is that he didn't want to half bake it like the last film. He was very stern on making the sequel better and bigger than that last one. This Scriptwriter is full of shit.

'Huge Talent' Ashley Tisdale To Play Legally Blonde 'Elle'?

This black female celebrity is always preaching self-love, high morals and spirituality despite having the morals of an alley cat.
She's more of an uninhibited "sex freak" than a spiritual counselor/lifestyle coach. What 's not known is that she loves the drug dens across this country when she's on tour or location. She likes cocaine and she just started dabbling with crack.

And, she likes to sleep with her friend's boyfriends behind their back, it makes her feel powerful and in control. She's down for whatever with whomever. Reportedly, she allegedly has a appetite for menage a trois as well.
She also slept with the famous (former) boyfriend of one of her musical peers. She's scandalous.

Whenever she feels the need to have a kid, she hooks up with a man, pretending she's all in to him, in reality, he's nothing more than a sperm donor. After she conceives, she tolerates him for a year or two, then kicks him to the curve, in her mind, 'he's served his purpose.'
She will soon have financial problems due to her expanding drug use.

9/11/2007: The New Normal?

9/11/2007: The New Normal?

Remember the end-of-irony declaration following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks? In 2004, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter was forced to eat his words and acknowledge, "Americans are by and large obsessed with crummy reality TV, and the lives of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton." (Never mind that his own publication arguably fuels that obsession.)

Nobody expects Americans to drop everything and just be sad every year on Sept. 11. It remains a little jarring, though, to see just how normal life is going to be tomorrow.



The new normal? Rap rivals 50 Cent and Kanye West both drop their new albums, for instance. This may not have much resonance in the halls of Congress, but just pull aside an intern and ask. The "Fiddy" and Kanye releases are a big deal indeed.

On TV, CBS will not be airing its heartbreaking and excellent documentary, "9-11: Camera At Ground Zero," for the first time since Sept. 11, 2002. Instead, viewers will be treated to a couple of reality shows and something called "NCIS." None of the four broadcasters, in fact, will be acknowledging the anniversary in prime time. PBS alone will be airing nods to 9/11, with a repeat of "Nova" that focuses on the rebuilding effort at Ground Zero and a "Wide Angle" that profiles an Afghan women's rights activist and politician.

Here in D.C., the building that houses The Gate and the rest of Atlantic Media is hosting an ice cream sundae social, where we can choose between "premium toppings including bananas, brownies, and much more!" Later in the evening, Beltway residents can enjoy the song styling of pop singer/actress Mandy Moore, who's performing at the Birchmere. If memories of 9/11 drive you to drink, you're in luck: EatBar and Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse are hosting beer tastings.
(Mandy Moore performing Umbrella)

Tomorrow will start out with somber commemorations at Ground Zero, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., of course. Traditionally, local stations in New York and Washington air them live. Expect cable to go to the Hill, though: Gen. David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker are in for a grilling by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Pavarotti returns to UK singles chart

 
Nessun Dorma 'to challenge for number one'

08/09/2007

Luciano Pavarotti could be set for a posthumous return to the UK singles chart after download sales of his iconic rendition of Puccini's Nessun Dorma soared.

Online retailers have reported skyrocketing sales since the great tenor's death at the age of 71 from pancreatic cancer on Thursday.

And a day after world figures and thousands of mourners attended his funeral in his hometown of Modena, Italy, Pavarotti could break into the top ten of the official British singles chart on Sunday.

Nessun Dorma, from Turandot, has become Pavarotti's signature operatic work after being adopted by the BBC for their coverage of the 1990 World Cup in Italy, and his performance of the aria with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras at the Three Tenors concert in Rome.

Although Nessun Dorma is unlikely to disrupt the current top three of Beautiful Girls by Sean Kingston, Kanye West's Stronger and Hey There Delilah from Plain White T's, there is belief among retailers that momentum for the song could build and potentially make it the first ever classical or operatic piece to top the official singles chart next week.

"It really would be wonderful if Nessun Dorma could become the first classical piece of music to ever make it to the top of the official singles charts," said HMV's Gennaro Castaldo.

"Not only would it be a fitting tribute to Pavarotti's genius, but it would acknowledge the great affection in which he was held by the public across the UK and Ireland.

"It's often the case that when an icon from the world of music and film dies there is a surge in demand for their recordings. While they are alive we tend to take their presence for granted, but as soon as they pass away many of us feel a strong impulse to keep their memory and talent alive by purchasing a CD or DVD of their greatest work."

Pavarotti 'changed will' in favour of first wife

 
 
By Nick Pisa in Rome
Last Updated: 5:41pm BST 10/09/2007

Friends of Luciano Pavarotti have suggested that he changed his will just weeks before his death to the disadvantage of his second wife Nicoletta.

Reports in the Italian media suggest the opera singer, who died last week from pancreatic cancer, changed his will a month ago to favour the children he had with his first wife Adua Veroni.

“Some businesses that were in other family members names were returned to his name and I also heard that he changed his will,” according to a friend who wished to remain unnamed.

According to another friend quoted in La Stampa newspaper, Pavarotti had said: “I am thinking of going to a lawyer.”

Pavarotti’s estate, including several properties in New York, Italy and Monte Carlo, is thought to be worth up to £250 million.

He is thought to have written a will in New York a year ago.

The recent changes are thought to have favoured the three daughters he had with his first wife; Lorenza, Cristina and Giuliana.

To which Dave responded: “Here’s the problem in a nutshell. I’m standing backstage. I hear this ovation and it’s huge. In my entire life in television … I’ve never heard an ovation like that. Then the ovation continues. And continues. And now it just gets silly. … I said to a guy back there, what is Oprah doing out there? He says, she’s just standing there.”

Domo arigato


Sitting alongside a homely Amanda Peet, self-appointed style icon and apparent sunglass enthusiast Victoria Beckham attends the showing of Oscar de la Renta 2008 spring/summer collection during Fashion Week in New York City on Monday.

Looking typically Posh in an emerald green mini-dress and towering peep-toes, the 33-year-old fashionista sat front row at the former church on Park Avenue and watched designs from the celeb-friendly fashion house parade down the runway to the music of The Polyphonic Spree, a local choir.

After the show, Victoria couldn’t help but rave about her newly adopted country. “LA is wonderful, I have never been happier,” she told reporters, “The sun is shining, everyone is friendly and the kids are surfing.” Posh has even made it onto a surfboard, though not in her trademark stilettos. “You know what, I would do that,” she added.

Thank Bjork and M.I.A. (but not the organizers)

Only a churl would accept a lovely present and complain about the wrapping. Bjork's performance at the opening night of the Virgin Festival was so transporting that I forgive the festival its glaring faults as an event (more on those below).

Bjork has been making strange and beautiful music for a couple of decades, and she's still exploring a frontier that nobody else can find.

Her dynamic show seemed to exist in three tenses at once: present, future and primeval past. Her music from ten years ago (she played several items from 1997's Telegram) sounded as fresh and original as the things she pulled from last spring's Volta. The show was impeccably planned and produced, yet she romped around the stage in her Pierrot-as-baroque-angel outfit as if making everything up on the spot.

No one else could tour with a brass band and make it seem like the coolest sound on earth. The 20 women of the Icelandic band Wonder Brass, and a battery of live percussion, grounded the music in organic tones that gave new point to the boldly synthetic sounds of synthesizers and drum machines. Songs such as Declare Independence and Earth Invaders were wildly spectacular, but for me the most mind-blowing thing was her performance of Cover Me, which with its clotted organ accompaniment sounded like high-church contemporary music of a kind that would never otherwise transfix 25,000 pop fans standing in a dark field.

The day's other big revelation was M.I.A, who tore up the mainstage with a mid-afternoon set of galanga rap from some extra-territorial party zone of fun and social combat.

Ashlee Simpson Gives Pete Wentz a Lap Dance


Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz had more than a VMA win to smile about Sunday night. As the band's Belvedere Suite party in the Fantasy Tower at the Palms Casino Resort got underway in the wee hours, Ashlee Simpson gave Pete a little treat — and it wasn't from the table of free breakfast goodies. Though they were roped off in the small V.I.P. section of the party (which Perez Hilton crashed around 3 a.m.), the couple weren't exactly hidden from view when they gave new meaning to displays of public affection. We tried not to stare, but it's not often you see near-expert lap dances from non-pros. It was actually somewhat instructional, and so expertly done that it made us wonder — did Ashlee take lessons? Somehow, Pete managed to DJ for awhile after that.

I WANT NEW ASHLEE SIMPSON ALBUM NEWS... not shit on how she gives lap dances to cavemen. :(

Other celebs in attendance included T.I. and Alicia Keys.

Attention Fans of The Used

I'm torn as to whether I find this to be amazing, or amazingly stupid...

The creation of artist Alex Pardee and The Used, CHADAM, is hitting a television screen near you.
This was posted on "Chadam"'s myspace.


"


So, here is the article that was slated to run in the NY Times this morning. Instead, it got submitted for immediate release to all of the correct media outlets online, so to make sure you are informed, here is the official announcement of what I have been up to, and what is going to happen in the near future of me….Chadam.

I AM STARRING IN MY OWN 3-D ANIMATED, EPISODIC MOVIE THAT IS BEING FULLY DEVELOPED, WRITTEN BY, DESIGNED BY AND CO-DIRECTED BY MY CREATOR, ALEX PARDEE, WITH THE HELP OF CO-WRITER ADAM PETERSON AND PRODUCER JACE HALL FOR WARNER BROS TELEVISION AND STUDIO 2.0!!!!

Here is a snippet of the official press release that JUST got sent out, with a little more info:

FOR RELEASE ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2007


BURBANK, Calif. (September 10, 2007) – Studio 2.0, the original programming, digital production arm of the Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG), has begun production on 23 new short form series projects for broadband and wireless, with additional programming in active development. The new projects – from Jim Henson Productions, Telepictures Productions, Warner Bros. Animation and film & television director/producer McG, as well as fast-rising comedians Joey & David, videogame/film/television producer Jason Hall and cutting-edge artist Alex Pardee, among others – reflect WBTVG's creative strategy for Studio 2.0, to showcase new artistic voices, provide creative opportunities for established talent in the broadband/wireless space and serve as an incubator for new television series.

"Chadam": Cutting-edge artist Alex Pardee and producer Jason Hall of HDFILMS Inc. are teaming up on a 3D animation project based upon Pardee's character of the same name. Initially introduced as a character icon for the popular rock band The Used, Chadam has become an Internet phenomenon. Chadam lives as the "chosen one" in the hyper-stylized and exaggerated metropolitan island city of Vulture. His power of imagination is strong enough to physically change his environment and, therefore, his world … to save it from evil. The series will find Chadam in a place of refuge, where he and others have retreated to plan their attack against the serial killer known as Viceroy. An action-horror-adventure story filled with self-discovery, "Chadam" will come to full 3D animated life via the magic of the Unreal Engine 3, the leading technology and development framework that powers cutting-edge games such as "Gears of War" and "BioShock" on today's popular platforms, including PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Internet series will serve as an incubator for future expansion of the "Chadam" universe, from additional online episodes to television, film, videogames and more. (Science Fiction)

So, yah, exciting, huh?
I know I AM. This is something that's been tough to get rolling, but we got it."

Kim Porter Says She Was Betrayed by Diddy





Kim Porter, who for more than a decade was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Sean "Diddy" Combs, is coming clean about the dissolution of their romance, saying his philandering was just one the reasons for their breakup in July.

"As Black women we sacrifice," Porter, 36, tells Essence magazine for its October issue, which hits newsstands Wednesday. (Part one of her interview was posted on Essence.com last week.) "We stand by our man, through thick and thin, through whatever. But if you feel like, 'Maybe I am getting the short end of the stick,' that's when a change has to take place."

Porter's rudest awakening in all her years with Combs, 37, took place late last year, when she was pregnant with the couple's twin daughters D'Lila Star and Jessie James, who were born Dec. 21. That was when a girlfriend informed her that Combs had recently fathered a baby with another woman.

Fresh cod served with steamed broccoli and couscous -- the main course at a lavish New York gala? Nope. It's what Maddox Jolie-Pitt had for lunch yesterday at his private Manhattan school. Bon appétit!

Little Maddox attends the prestigious Lycée Français de New York on the Upper East side. Cameras captured Angelina taking Maddox to school last week, wearing the latest in private school haute couture. C'est magnifique!

Today, according to the school menu, Maddox can expect to dine on vegetable chunks soup, rotisserie chicken, green bean almondine, white rice, and yogurt or fruit. Kinda makes that Hot Pocket you were going to microwave look pretty bad, doesn't it?

Eh, I dunno. When I was five the only things I'd eat were Flinstone gummies and chicken nuggets. I probably would have thrown a fit if someone gave me cod.

2007 Toronto Film Festival - "The Girl in the Park" Press Conference

Sigourney Weaver & Kate Bosworth present "THE GIRL IN THE PARK" at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival



"The Girl in the Park" - Enduringly traumatized by the disappearance of her 3-year-old daughter 15 years ago, Julia Sandburg (Sigourney Weaver) has cut herself off from anyone once near and dear to her, including her husband Doug and her son Chris, who tried for years to penetrate her wall of isolation and despair, without success. But when Julia meets Louise (Kate Bosworth), a troubled young woman with a checkered past, all Julia's old psychic wounds painfully resurface, as does her illogical and increasingly irrational hope that Louise may be the daughter she lost so long ago.

The movie marks the directing debut of David Auburn, winner of both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize for his play Proof. Also starring Alessandro Nivola, David Rasche, Elias Koteas, and Kerri Russell.

They look like mother and daughter!!!
