Man Who Murdered Kelsey Grammer's Sister Up For Parole



The man convicted of killing Kelsey Grammer's sister Karen in 1975 is up for parole in January.

On Sunday, KOAA spoke to a retired detective who worked the case.

"This was one of the first cases that I really got involved with where we actually solved the case from beginning to end," said Lou Smit.

Smit says in 1975, 18-year-old Karen Grammer was outside a Red Lobster on South Academy in Colorado Springs, waiting for her boyfriend to get off of work, when three guys tried to rob the restaurant. Smit says thinking that she would be able to recognize them, they kidnapped her. Smit says they drove her to a trailer park near Wahsatch Avenue, let her out of the car and stabbed her several times.

Freddie Lee Glenn was convicted for her murder. He is currently at the Bent County Correctional Facility in Las Animas, where he is serving three life terms for several crimes.

Glenn is up for parole in January. Smit says he doesn't think Glenn should ever be released.

"It's just a couple of old retired law enforcement people that still do remember and remember the families of these victims and it's just something we can still do," Smit said.

So sad. His father was also murdered, and he lost both of his twin half brothers to a shark attack. I hope he doesn't get out on parole, just for the sake of sanity.

Alan Davies: Stephen Fry doesn't fancy me



TV star Alan Davies thinks people only tune into QI to see if he and host Stephen Fry will get it on.

Comedian Alan is a resident panellist on the Trivial Pursuits-esque BBC quiz show - but says Stephen isn't the slightest bit interested in him.

"I think people watch it because they think there is a chance we might shag. That’s really what they tune in for," he says.

"If he fancied me he would have done something about it by now. He doesn’t fancy me at all, I think he thinks I’m a twit! He just tolerates me."

Essex boy Alan, 41, believes the show's popularity isn't only down to the 'frissons' between him and Stephen.

"It covers topics that are neglected. People seem to be almost scared of being perceived as clever - they take great pride in being stupid and lazy, not doing their homework and not listening in class, it makes them cool," he explains.

"That has become the dominating feature of our culture.

"There are thousands of pub quiz teams and people in their millions watch Mastermind, I know that, but there aren’t many entertainment shows that make an effort to raise the bar a little bit and not talk about celebrity or popular culture for half an hour. Stephen is very much against that."

He continues: "I watched him on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, when he was on with Nigella Lawson.

"They’re kind of cut from the same posh English cloth, and they were going to win a million quid and then go home and write an opera together, but then there was a question about Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow, and they just looked blank!"

But Jonathan Creek star Alan says QI fits Stephen like a glove.

"It’s the perfect gig for Stephen. It gives him the chance to be a 1950s school teacher, which is what he’s always wanted to be," he says.

"The good thing about Stephen is that he’s a good laugher. The best hosts are very good at sitting back and letting it go on around them, and Stephen is able to do that, plus deal with the autocue, do the research, tell anecdotes, answer back and give you a clip round the ear, so he does an amazing job actually."

QI returns for a new series on BBC Two from Friday September 21.

Jon Stewart to rehost the Oscars



LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11 — The Academy Awards haven’t exactly turned into a yearly show with Jon Stewart. But Mr. Stewart, the political satirist and star of “The Daily Show,” is getting another shot at the Oscar podium.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which bestows the Oscars, is expected to bring back Mr. Stewart, who was host of the ceremony in 2006. An announcement is scheduled for Wednesday, according to two people involved with the plan who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the news media.

A spokesman for the academy declined to comment. And a publicist for Mr. Stewart declined to comment.

The show, scheduled for Feb. 24 on ABC, will be produced by Gil Cates, who was also the producer when Mr. Stewart made his appearance in 2006.

The comedian mostly toned down his trademark political humor for the broadcast, and scored some of biggest laughs with a riff and montage on gay cowboys, keyed to a 2006 nominee for best picture, “Brokeback Mountain.” (“Crash” won the big prize.)

The ceremony drew just 38.9 million viewers on Mr. Stewart’s watch. The number was smaller than the 39.9 million drawn by this year’s ceremony, whose host was Ellen DeGeneres, who played it folksy in an open collar and red velvet, or the 42.1 million who watched Chris Rock, who played with fire when he tweaked stars like Jude Law in 2005.

It was also far below the 55 million who tuned in when the immensely popular “Titanic” swept the awards in 1998, and Billy Crystal made one of his eight appearances as host.

As in recent years, next year’s ceremony, the 80th, will be held at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

BREAKING: Brit Cries, “I Looked Like a Fat Pig” After Exiting Stage

No one was more shocked watching Britney Spears' performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday night than the 25-year-old popstar herself.

“She was also able to see video of herself throughout the auditorium,” a backstage source tells Us Weekly. “She flipped out. She came running off the stage, yelling ‘Oh, my God, I looked like a fat pig! I looked like a fat pig!’ She was inconsolable.”

'Southland Tales' poster and clip

Here's the one-sheet for "Southland Tales," starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Seann William Scott and Sarah Michelle Gellar, and directed by Richard Kelly ("Donnie Darko").


Here's a blurb about the movie from Cinematical.com:

Essentially, Southland Tales is an ensemble piece (that mixes sci-fi, comedy, music and drama, if you can believe it) which takes place in a 2008 where Los Angeles is on the verge of political and environmental disaster. Boxer (Johnson), an action star with amnesia, soon finds his life intertwine with the dysfunctional worlds of an adult film star (Gellar) and a cop (Scott) mixed up in a conspiracy. But from what I gather (and knowing Kelly's work), there's a whole lot more going on as well. I mean, just look at that poster -- it definitely gives us a peak inside the complexity of the film. Southland Tales will finally make its new and improved debut in theaters on November 9.

And here's a YouTube clip from this ultra-bizarre movie.


And here's a clip of someone meeting Richard Kelly, the writer-director, at a convention or something. I just wanted to post this because I think he's fucking hot as hell.

Review: New CDs from 50 Cent, Kanye West

09/10/2007 4:08 PM, AP
Brett Johnson


50 Cent, "Curtis" (Interscope) and Kanye West, "Graduation" (Def Jam)

Hip-hop's latest battle between two of its biggest egos — Kanye West and 50 Cent — has been building like a title fight in Vegas. Before the Tuesday release of their respective CDs, "Graduation" and "Curtis," 50 challenged West to a televised debate, called him a "worker bee" while describing himself as a "boss," and vowed to retire if West outsold him during their debut week. In response, West has mostly downplayed Fiddy's bluster, re-channeling it as added publicity for his own release. The two share a Rolling Stone magazine cover posed nose-to-nose, evoking the great showdowns of our time.

If the contest was being judged solely on artistic vision rather than Soundscan tallies, however, West could claim a landslide victory. "Graduation" blends a different set of musical influences than West's past two efforts, 2004's "The College Dropout" and 2005's "Late Registration." Drawing from Daft Punk and Coldplay to loping, back-porch soul and '80s-era electro-disco rhythms, "Graduation" still sounds like a logical step forward. Yet "Curtis" sounds like Fiddy is standing in place, with the familiar bruising basslines and slick, synth-heavy productions that have transformed the former drug dealer into one of the top-selling recording artists of any genre.Collapse )

Um, I think they got his President Bush quote slightly wrong, but whatev.

Radcliffe giggled through first sex scene

By Michelle Nichols
Tue Sep 11, 3:14 PM ET


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Daniel Radcliffe's first kiss as Harry Potter attracted global attention but in reality the 18-year-old British actor already had lost his on-screen virginity.

The setting for the love scene with Australian actress Teresa Palmer -- filmed when Radcliffe was 16 -- was a remote cave by the Australian shore for the movie "December Boys." It is his first major role outside the boy wizard film series.

The movie opens in the United States and Britain on Friday and will make its debut in Australia later this month.

Radcliffe, who has since appeared nude on the London stage in "Equus" and hopes to do so again on Broadway, said filming the sex scene was laughable and decidedly not sexy.

"It's a laugh. It's very, very hard to stop giggling I found," Radcliffe told Reuters. "I suppose the thing I was worried about was, 'Am I going to get an erection? Is this going to be really sexy? Is this going to be a bit awkward?'

"But when you get in there, it's not sexy in the slightest," he said.

"December Boys" is the tale of four boys on a beach holiday away from their outback Australian orphanage home. Radcliffe plays the eldest boy, named Maps.

"What was quite nice about doing that scene was the dynamic between my character and Teresa's character was very much like it was between us as actors on that day because I had never done a sex scene before, Teresa had done a few," he said.

GUIDING THE NERVOUS

"I was quite nervous and she was sort of guiding me through it," said Radcliffe, who is about to start filming the sixth Harry Potter movie.

Radcliffe started playing Potter when he was 11 and found that the "December Boys" role gave him confidence when he returned to Britain to film "Order of the Phoenix," the movie in which Harry's kiss with Cho Chang attracted global attention from fans and the media.

"It was a character who was very, very different from Harry and I wanted to prove to myself really ... that I could do something else," Radcliffe said of Maps.

"You think, 'Right, I can survive outside this world.' Because that's the fear -- 'Oh god, what if I go on to another film set and I just can't hack it,"' he said.

Well mannered, mature and possessor of a reported $40 million fortune, Radcliffe said before he started on "December Boys" he was nervous about how his colleagues would perceive him. He said there was a stereotype of younger actors "being just brats and horrible people."

"Fortunately, they didn't seem to have those preconceived notions," he said. "In America child actors are treated like actors first and then children, whereas in England they're treated as children first and then actors.

"So if you're getting too big for your boots no one will have any worries about saying shut up, whereas in America I think possibly people pander too it more than is healthy," he said. "There's not a huge amount of sycophancy in my life."

Hayden & Stephen: It's Over!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hayden Panettiere is back on the market.

Us Weekly has learned the Heroes hottie, 18, and her boyfriend of one year, Laguna Beach alum Stephen Colletti, 21, have gone their separate ways.

But the actress (who spent the end of August promoting Heroes in Europe with costars Milo Ventimiglia and Adrian Pasdar) seems to have moved on. When Us asked, "Where's Stephen?" at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 9, she furrowed her brow and replied, "I don't know. In California?"

Maybe it's because she had time to adjust to the relationship being over. As a source tells Us, "Their breakup has been a long time coming." But that doesn't mean the former sweethearts are feuding. Panettiere tells Us, "We are still very close friends and talk to each other frequently. We appreciate and support each other's careers."
(Colletti's rep could not be reached for comment.)

Brawl out boy Pete Wentz & Ashlee's dad deliver hits at club

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Celebrities turned on their protectors Sunday when Ashlee Simpson's dad, Joe, and her rocker boyfriend, Pete Wentz, teamed up to defend the pop songstress against a Vegas bodyguard. The fist-fest erupted as the Simpsons and Wentz were trying to leave the Decaydance/GQ party at the Mirage's Jet nightspot.

Bouncers were willing to let Ashlee, Joe and Pete through — but they blocked the Simpson entourage, which included the Gym Class Heroes MC, Marc DeJesus.

"What are you doing?" yelled Wentz, demanding that his crew be escorted to a waiting SUV. "This is my [bleeping] car! I paid for this [bleeping] car!"

Tempers rose, and, before long, a security guard shoved Wentz, knocking Ashlee against a wall.
We watched as Wentz rushed to her aid. The Fall Out Boy bassist rained punches on the much-taller door sentries. Papa Joe also dove into the chaos.

"When somebody messes with my baby, then it's over!" Joe told us later, drawing his finger across his throat.
Happily, the sound and fury didn't result in any serious injuries, and the Simpson-Wentz group managed to leave. Outside, Wentz stomped around and spat on the wall of the club. "[Bleep] this place!" he screeched, vowing never to set foot inside again. (A Jet rep had no immediate comment.)

One fan tried to snap a picture of Simpson and Wentz after the melee, prompting Ashlee to lunge for the guy's camera. Wentz quickly grabbed her around the waist. Joe, whose starlet offspring Jessica wasn't present, suggested that the bouncers are "just mad they make $12 an hour." Yeah, let them get multi-millionaire daughters of their own!

Sharon Bags on Courtney: Off Jack!

Sharon Osbourne wants Courtney Love to stay the hell away from her -- and her son Jack! Sharon accuses Courtney of plying little Jackie with OxyContin when he was just 15.

TMZ has confirmed that Sharon did, in fact, make the shocking allegation to the Daily Mirror (UK). "I will never have time for Courtney Love. She was the first person to give my son Jack the prescription drug OxyContin," she tells the tab. "There's not a shadow of doubt in my mind about that." Osbourne didn't divulge details of Courtney's alleged drug-pushing, though in 2003, Jack was admitted to a hospital for Oxy addiction, but has been drug-free ever since.

Love's rep did not return a call seeking comment.

Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Bearded and Political in Toronto



As Brokeback-director Ang Lee grabbed yet another Golden Lion in Venice, Jake Gyllenhaal was giving really good face as he arrived at the premiere of the CIA-thriller Rendition at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday. He gave an interview to the Toronto Star about the film, answering a few questions about acting and politics:

"I get about 15 emails a day from my mother. And each one has links to all these political blogs she thinks I should check out. What I really liked about this script (Rendition), and what I really admired about Gavin (Hood, Rendition's South African-born director) is that politics is secondary to the human story. And as an actor I'm always interested in the human side of politics. The thing about this movie is that everybody believes they're acting out of the best intentions. They all think they're doing some kind of good. And they're all acting on what they've been told. But who's to say what you're being told is the truth? I think people question whether they're being told the truth in situations like this. And who can blame them? Even worse, a lot of people have even lost the want for the truth. I heard somebody say recently that people actually prefer ignorance. I know I do a lot of the time. The truth can be painful."

Jake made no mention of his rumored relationship with co-star Reese Witherspoon. View the trailer for Rendition after the jump...

At least two that I can think of... What a family to marry into, any which way!

Mini Paris Hilton’s Will Rule The World

Paris Hilton wants to adopt four blond-haired girls.

The hotel heiress, whose close friend Nicole Richie recently announced her pregnancy, reportedly wants to travel the world to find disadvantaged children she can give a home to.

A source told Britain's Closer magazine: "Paris has been saying, 'You don't need a husband to have babies.' There are babies in orphanages around the world, and she's hoping to find four girls with blond hair and pretty eyes to whom to give the Hilton name."

The 26-year-old blond, who has made no secret of her desire to become a mother, wants her future children to follow in her footsteps and become famous.

The source added: "She's been telling people, 'I want a brood of little mini versions of me.' I'll raise them to be the most famous women in the world."

Paris also wants her daughters to become models and is planning to launch her own line of children's clothing.

The source said: "She'll design a line of baby clothes. She sees her kids modeling from a young age."

Paris has so many pets she has to employ a zoo keeper to look after them all.

She recently told Elle magazine: "My animals make me really happy. I just love my pets. I have 11 dogs, three ferrets, two rabbits, two monkeys and three cats.

"The monkeys and ferrets are at my ranch, but the dogs and cats and bunnies run around my house. I have this guy, Eric, who's like a zoo keeper, and he's with them all the time. He loves them, and I love them, too. But since I work a lot I'm not always home."

Paris got into trouble with California's animal authorities when she bought a kinkajou during a trip to Las Vegas in 2005.

The 26-year-old star was eventually forced to give up the racoon-like pet, which she named Baby Luv, after it was deemed to be illegal to own as a pet.

The same year, Paris was also allegedly forced to return a baby kangaroo after having it flown to the US from Queensland, Australia.

Her pets include a Rottweiler called Tyson, Rascal the Ferret and her famous Chihuahuas Tinkerbell and Bambi.

Brit flub brings improved MTV ratings anyway

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As a comeback bid, Britney Spears’ performance on Sunday night’s “MTV Video Music Awards” was a disaster of the worst kind, drawing criticism for everything from her lousy lip-synching to clunky dance moves to that surprising belly paunch.

But as a ratings-grabber, MTV couldn’t have asked for anything more. Spears’ much-hyped appearance, her first TV singing performance in years, ended a four-year ratings skid for the long-fading VMAs.

The VMAs averaged 7.1 million total viewers, up 23 percent compared with last year’s near-record-low 5.8 million. It was the first time since 2002 that the show has seen a year-to-year gain.

Among MTV’s target audience of people 12-34, the show was up 23 percent over last year’s awards program, averaging a 6.4 rating. It was the highest-rated ad-supported cable telecast this year in that demographic.

Spears’ dreadful performance was all the buzz online following the show, with bloggers, messageboards and even a surprising chunk of the mainstream media dissecting the cultural significance of her latest public train wreck. That led to increased traffic to MTV.com, which hit a record 2.66 million unique visitors Sunday.

The site has served more than 6 million streams of Sunday’s awards show through its on-demand feature.

"Top Chef" Contestant Beaten By Anti-Gay Attackers

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Josie Smith-Malave, a lesbian who was featured on Season 2 of the Bravo channel show, was among a small group of women asked to leave a Sea Cliff bar over Labor Day weekend, lawyer Yetta Kurland said. About 10 young people followed the women out and began screaming anti-gay epithets, spitting on them and then beating them, Kurland said.

The women, who had been on Long Island to attend a friend's birthday party, suffered bruises, and one received injuries to her head. One of them had a camera taken in the attack.

Smith-Malave, who is in her early 30s, is openly gay, Kurland said. Her sister, who is straight, also was beaten.


Smith-Malave is a former sous-chef for the Marlow and Sons restaurant in Brooklyn. She has played for the New York Sharks of the Independent Women's Football League.

Nassau County police said they were investigating, but they declined to provide details of the incident.

Kurland said she hoped the attackers would be caught and prosecuted on felony hate-crime charges.

'Fight Club' duo to star in Universal adaptation

Edward Norton is getting back in the ring with his "Fight Club" partner Brad Pitt.

Duo will star in "State of Play," Universal Pictures' adaptation of the British miniseries. Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland") is directing the Matthew Michael Carnahan script.

Norton will play a congressman whose speedy political rise is threatened by an investigation into the death of his mistress. Pitt plays a politico-turned-journalist whose relationship with the solon is compromised when he oversees his newspaper's investigation into the murder and develops a relationship with the pol's estranged wife.

Project has been a high priority for U since the studio won an auction for rights to the six-hour mini written by Paul Abbott. Though Pitt has long been attached, he had been courted for other pics while Tony Gilroy worked on a rewrite. Pitt recently committed after that script was turned in, and the project is on track for a November start.

Andrew Hauptman will produce with Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. Abbott is exec producer.

Norton will begin shooting "State of Play" days after he wraps "The Incredible Hulk" for Marvel Studios, with Universal releasing the Louis Leterrier-directed superhero film on June 13.

And now for something completely different. Before breaking into another Britney story (I seriously still believe in here, but this is just overkill for today), let have some fun watching a Róisín Murphy video (her wikipedia, before I get an onslaught of 'who?' comments)that was released just yesterday, on her official youtube account:



Video Link


text from the site:

Róisín Murphy releases her new single 'Let Me Know' on October 8th with the brand new album 'Overpowered' following on October 15th. Co-written and produced by Andy Cato of Groove Armada, and mixed by Dan Carey (Kylie, Sly & Robbie, CSS, Lily Allen), 'Let Me Know' is a huge, floor-filling monster of a tune. The track was inspired by Róisín's performance at legendary New York DJ Danny Krivit's 718 Sessions in 2006 and perfectly showcases Róisín's love of dance music coupled with a huge great melody.

'Let Me Know' features three brand new B-sides and some stunning mixes from both Andy Cato and Joey Negro. However this time they're spread across the formats rather than stuffed on to one bumper-CD

Alexis Stewart's self made Porn


Monday on Whatever Radio with Alexis and Jennifer, Martha Stewart's daughter Alexis revealed that she has three homemade porn videos of herself and a partner on her home computer.

A staffer on the website writes a recap about the show each day. Here's the recap:

"Sheila asked if Alexis got off when she was having text sex. Alexis said that’s what the purpose was. Jennifer said she didn’t get it. Alexis asked if Jennifer understood phone sex. Jennifer said she did and it was different because you heard the person’s voice. Alexis said she couldn’t even remember the voice of the person she had text sex with. Jennifer said that was her point. It wasn’t like it was a porn video… Alexis said that she made porn videos, too. Jennifer said a sex scandal would be so good for their show. Alexis said she wouldn’t care if anyone saw her porn videos because the three that she has made are perfectly attractive. Jennifer said they had to talk about it now because Alexis opened the door.

Jennifer asked why Alexis couldn’t photoshop the dirty videos. Alexis said it was dirty from beginning to end and what would she take out? Jennifer asked where she filmed the videos. Alexis said different places…sometimes hotels. Jennifer asked if he could be holding the camera. Alexis said he could. Alexis said she didn’t really think they needed to talk about it. Jennifer asked if the files were password protected on her computer. Alexis said as much as anything else was. Jennifer asked if Alexis looked at the camera. Alexis said no, that’s creepy. Jennifer asked if Alexis said, “Do it to me harder.” Alexis said something along those lines.

Jennifer asked Chrissy if she made dirty videos. Chrissy said she’d been trying to cut down. Holly said no but she was the kind of person that would not say that on the radio. Paulie played the porn music. Jennifer yelled, “Woah, Holly!” Paulie said he didn’t make porn videos. Jennifer said it takes a lot of self esteem. Alexis said the guy already saw her naked anyway, what was the big deal? Paulie said this was disaster waiting to happen. He was sure Paris never wanted stuff to get out there. Alexis said that it was on her computer, no one else was seeing it but if it got leaked out it would get good publicity for the show. Paulie said Geek Squad might find it. Alexis said there was no Geek Squad in her apartment.

Diana called in to ask what Martha said about all this. Alexis said she was almost 42 and her sex life was none of her mother’s business. Alexis said it wasn’t out of the ordinary to make a porn. Diana said she wouldn’t want her mother to find out. Alexis said her mother had told her things about her sex life that she didn’t need to hear so it was payback time. Jennifer said she wasn’t as comfortable talking about the sex that she had but that didn’t mean she didn’t have sex.

Jennifer asked if Alexis went back to the videos for inspiration. Alexis said no. Jennifer asked what kind of lighting treatment Alexis used. Alexis said it depended on the situation. Alexis said she didn’t look at the camera, she was thinking about what she was doing. Paulie said she was a consummate professional. Jennifer said she was practically a porn star. Paulie played the porn music.

Jennifer asked where Paulie found that music. Paulie said they use it on the Catholic channel. "



Somebody hack her computer and leak this!!! Martha Stewart involved (allbeit indirectly) in a porn scandal would be HILARIOUS! You know somebody in her life has the power to get the videos.

Hudgens continues to keep things covered, barely



Only days after what may have been a career-ending controversy, ‘High School Musical’ star Vanessa Hudgens has been caught taking it all off again. But this time, the young starlet kept things a little more covered up in a little black bikini as she relaxed poolside in Los Angeles.

Rocking a sexy studded bikini, the 18-year-old actress appeared more concerned about perfecting her golden tan than the nude photo controversy which threatened end her blossoming career.

Looks like Vanessa may have the last laugh after all. Not only have Disney chiefs stood by her side (yes, she will be in ‘HSM 3′), but she’s also managed to shed her “good girl” image all while stirring up more public interest in her life than she could have ever imagined.

LEE CUTS NC-17 FILM SO IT CAN BE VIEWED BY CHINESE KIDS


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



Although Ang Lee's Lust Caution has been rated NC-17 by the MPAA for explicit sex scenes, the film has been reedited for showing in China so that it can be seen by children, according to the state news agency Xinhua. Xinhua reported today (Wednesday) that the Chinese-language film was personally cut by Lee himself "to protect its integrity." The wire service indicated that 30 minutes of scenes with sexual and violent content were excised. "The spirit of the film remains despite the cutting and the fluency will not be affected," Lee told Xinhua. In a separate interview with today's (Wednesday) USA Today, Lee said that he included the explicit sex scenes because "it's just the movie I wanted to make. I didn't care if it would lose money." He acknowledged that "I'm kind of a big figure in filmmaking over there [China] and also culturally. It's a lot of burden on my shoulders."

When Ashanti was asked about Britney’s VMA performance she laughed, rolled her eyes and walked away, then her publicist stepped in and said, “No comment.”

New Job? ESPN Puts Beckham in the Booth

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

David Beckham may not be able to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy, but that doesn't mean Major League Soccer is going to let its publicity magnet fade out of the public eye, not while he's being paid a reported $5.5 million annual salary. Sidelined with a lingering knee injury, the English soccer star will provide commentary for ESPN2's telecast of tomorrow's MLS Primetime Thursday match between the Galaxy and Chivas USA (Thursday, Sept. 13, 11pm/ET).

Becks will join play-by-play man Glenn Davis, and analysts Eric Wynalda and Tommy Smyth for the call. According to ESPN, Beckham "will discuss a wide range of topics as well as provide some insight on game action." SOURCE

While being seriously HOT as FUCK, Beckham has one of the GAYEST sounding voices of any celebrity. Here's hoping they just show his shirtless in the studio for two hours.

Keyshia Cole In Essence



ESSENCE: Were you always going to be a solo artist?

KEYSHIA COLE: Well, actually, I was gonna be in a group with these two girls. We were in Los Angeles and we were working with Damon Elliot, who is Dionne Warwick’s son, and he was like, “Keysh, if you wanna sign with the girl group, you can; but I’ll sign you solo.” And I was like, I’d rather be solo because I do everything in the group anyway. They’re just pretty. We were gonna get, like, a $30,000 advance and split it ten/ten/ten; but I figured, “Why should I give them my $20,000 when I can get it myself?” So I told them, “I’m sorry, but I can’t.” Then I recorded a couple songs with Damon and one of them was (the hit single) “Love.”

ESSENCE: Early in your career you went to Los Angeles and met legendary music producer Suge Knight and Tupac Shakur. What was that like?

COLE: My brother was close with Pac, he got records with Pac and everything. And Pac’s mother is really cool with my brother and me. So to me, Pac was just like a big brother. That time was like one of the biggest moments in history, and I saw everything. I was with them in Malibu and Vegas and I stayed in the “big house” by myself. I knew the world, the whole industry, everything. I was only fourteen.

ESSENCE: You recently got out of a serious relationship. How’s that been?

COLE: After my ex-boyfriend told me to go on and live my life, I saw him at a place with another girl. I was pissed! I tried to rip her head off. Then he was like, “Dude, you broke up with me.” But that’s just what it is.

ESSENCE: Your sister, Neffeteria, who plays a big part in your BET reality show, The Way It Is (premiering October 30), seems to have had a pretty difficult life. What advice do you give her?

COLE: I’ve told her, “You need to work on you.” After going through so much, you really gotta worry about yourself first. Everything else is secondary. Everything else. Husband, kids…well, not the kids, ’cause she takes care of those babies very well. But really, you gotta work on yourself first. If you don’t, you ain’t gonna be able to deal with people.

ESSENCE: How do you feel about constantly being compared to Mary J. Blige?

COLE: I feel like we are very similar based on everything we’ve been through in our personal lives. It’s helped make us sing the way we sing. Because she didn’t have a vocal coach, and neither did I. And when I met her I told her, “You winning all those Grammy’s—congratulations—it gives me inspiration to this day that maybe I can do the same thing.” You know, it’s just a real big life circle. I think there are a lot of things that she could tell me that’d help me. I’m not trying to take nobody’s place or nothing like that. But I’m just saying, as a woman—as a young Black woman—if she knows some of the answers, Give ’em to me!” (Laughing.) But she said that I could call her anytime. I just haven’t done it yet.

Mary-Kate Olsen Enjoys Running Around Naked In Heels - don't we all





Fashion icon Mary-Kate Olsen told Harper's Bazaar magazine: 'I run around my house naked with heels all the time. It's so funny. All my friends will tell you I love running around in kimonos and jewelry or naked with jewelry.'

In HB's October issue, the 21-year-old acting luminary says she owes some of her fashion genius to men:
I dress the way I feel instead of looking for what's the new handbag. Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, men, they just dress the way they want, and they don't think about Who Wore It Best."
Mary-Kate, a budding businesswoman, who has her own clothing line with sister Ashley, says:

They take photos of us going into our offices, and it's 'Mary-Kate and Ashley shopping again. But I'm going to work for eight hours, and we're working so hard.. It just shows how people want to think of you. The only time people get photos of me is when I'm getting coffee, when I can't sneak away from the camera."

It doesn't help that she gets coffee 6 times a day, but everyone needs to keep the weight off somehow.

Pam Anderson on the VMA Fight: "I'm staying out of it."

She's been married to both men – but Pamela Anderson isn't choosing sides after exes Kid Rock and Tommy Lee came to blows at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards.

"I'm staying out of it," Anderson, 40, said on a Wednesday visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"Last time you were here you said they didn't get along," DeGeneres, 49, told Anderson, who answered, "Can ya tell?"

The former Baywatch babe also says she didn't witness the fight. "I actually left," she said. "As soon as I left, meow! They all went after each other."

DeGeneres pointed out that Anderson and Lee seemed awfully close during the awards ceremony, and posited to Anderson, "Clearly you and Tommy are good friends? You have kids together and were sitting on his lap earlier."

Answered Anderson: "He pulled me on his lap and spanked my butt."

"Was that okay or no?" DeGeneres wondered.

"Yeah, that was okay," said Anderson. "What are you going to do? Boys."

Neither Anderson nor DeGeneres could pinpoint the source of the "boys"' feud, though, with tongue in cheek, the show host offered her own theory. "Could have been over me? Could they be fighting over me?" she asked.

Only Anderson sought to play down the feud. Why? As she revealed on the program, she has a new – mystery – man in her life.

"I paid off a poker debt with sexual favors, and I fell in love," Anderson told DeGeneres. "It's so romantic. It's romance."

While Anderson would not identify her new beau, she did say he is a professional poker player.

As for future plans, "I'm not really engaged. I don't what I am," Anderson said when pressed for details. "We may never get that far. We're in love. This is nice."

The 24-year-old, who first found fame as a popstar aged 15, is set to shock with her saucy antics in a role as a high-class hooker - and her foul mouth.

Billie, who made her name as an actress in Doctor Who, is about to star in ITV2's Secret Diary of a Call Girl based on the bestselling book.

“Now I am broke and I have got all this underwear,” she confessed. “Every time I go past an Agent Provocateur shop I think, 'I can't go in, I can't go in,’ and then I do go in and buy something else.”

“I do enjoying glamming up now,” she said. “I have started wearing heels all the time now. That show has been the start of something bad.”

Early Sales Projections Put Kanye Ahead Of 50, Chesney


Kanye West

September 11, 2007, 7:00 PM ET
Ed Christman, N.Y.

It looks like 50 Cent is headed for retirement, if store reports continue to trend the way they were by mid-afternoon today (Sept. 11). 50 Cent had told SOHH.com that he would quit the rap game if his new G-Unit/Interscope album, "Curtis," was outsold by Kanye West's Def Jam set "Graduation," both of which were released today.

Sales data is finalized Sunday at midnight when the Nielsen SoundScan week officially ends, but early indications are that West will be the victor, at least in the first week.

According to executives with three of the major labels, whose job duties include projecting first week scans based on early store sales reports, "Graduation" could come in at the 575,000-700,000 range, while "Curtis" is being projected in the 500,000-600,000 range.

Meanwhile, Kenny Chesney's "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates," also released today, is projected to arrive the 400,000-550,000 range, with one sales projecting guru putting the country star neck and neck with 50 Cent.

A check with one Northeast urban-oriented store selling both the 50 Cent and West albums found the former outselling the latter seven copies to three copies today.

But when asked why there was such a light turnout for the two biggest urban music stars, the store owner admitted selling 144 copies of "Curtis" and 91 copies of "Graduation" over the weekend, "Of course, you realize Sept. 11 wasn't the release date in my store," he said.

Try to make Owen go to rehab... and Owen said ... no... no... no...

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Owen says NO to Rehab
Friends and family members close to troubled star Owen Wilson are unhappy that the actor is refusing to go back into a residential rehab program, following his hospitalization for a suicide attempt.

Wilson was expected to head to the Promises clinic in Malibu or a similar facility to seek help, but instead, In Touch Weekly reports Wilson is overruling the advice from people like his brother Luke Wilson, supposedly saying he doesn't think that approach will solve his problems.

Instead, the ''Wedding Crashers'' and ''Night at the Museum'' star has reportedly hired a 24-7, $750-per-day ''sober companion'' to keep him on track.

A source close to Luke Wilson told me he is ''understandably very upset'' that Owen seems to be resisting a return to live-in rehab.
''Unless he checks himself into a real rehab clinic, he's not really dealing realistically with his demons,'' said the source.

• Additionally, various reports are also clarifying one aspect of Wilson's suicide attempt. Apparently, he did not slit his wrists, but only took pills in an attempt to do himself in.

Britney Spears's Hairdresser Quit Before VMA Performance

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Before her now-notorious performance at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas, Britney Spears had a spat with celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday.

Weeks before the awards show, "Britney had requested his two female assistants [to do her extensions] since she prefers women around her," and was disappointed when Paves himself arrived, says a Spears source. The stylist soon left, taking his hair with him.

"He bailed," says the source. Says Paves's rep: "Ken made the professional decision not to do her hair for the VMAs."

That wasn't Spears's only problem – there was also a wardrobe flap. An MTV rep says costumers picked out a form-flattering corset for her to wear, but Spears chose a bikini instead.

Ashlee Simpson's New Single Revealed Today on TRL

It's entitled "Murder" and it fuses cool futuristic synthetic beats with african tribal beats! It was produced by Timberland. It also features rapping by someone from gym class heroes.

Simpson gave MTV a sneak peak of the album on September 8. It is described by Simpson as being based on beats more than guitars, unlike her previous albums, and some of the songs are darkly themed and sung by Simpson as an alter ego called Vicky Valentine. Among these songs is "Murder", a possible first single from the album, which also features rapping by Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes. Simpson mentioned her work on Chicago as being one of her inspirations for the album, and she said that "there's a part of every girl and guy who wants to get out and get away with things". Other songs mentioned are "Follow You Wherever You Go" (described as "jazzed-up"), "Rulebreaker", "Ay Ay Ay", and "Ragdoll". According to MTV, Simpson has recorded six songs with Timbaland and seven with Chad Hugo and Kenna.

Meredith Vieira Returns To 'The View'

NEW YORK (AP) — The View is getting a visit from a prominent alum.

No, not THAT one. Meredith Vieira, the show's moderator before being briefly replaced by Rosie O'Donnell — who was replaced by Whoopi Goldberg — is returning to the daytime chat show Oct. 8. It will be her first guest appearance since leaving the ABC show.

Vieira, 53, will talk about her experiences as co-host of NBC's Today show, and is hawking a new Who Wants to Be a Millionaire DVD game that will be released next month. She is host of the game show.

She spent nine seasons as moderator of the Barbara Walters-invented ABC talk show before leaving in June 2006.

During that time, she dressed as a hot dog and dominatrix, sang Take Me Out to the Ball Game while tap dancing and gave Wesley Snipes a lap dance.

Foxy Brown



Despite telling the NY Post and announcing to the judge of her probation hearing that she was expecting, it turns out that Foxy Brown is not pregnant after all. The 27-year-old rapper, née Inga Marchand, released a statement through her manager today, saying,

And to the pregnancy rumors, this is the official statement: She is not pregnant.

Last week, Foxy was sentenced to a year in jail for violating her probation. Rumors began when a prison guard at Rikers, where Foxy is currently being housed, told radio host Wendy Williams that the prison has a special ward for their pregnant prisoners -- a ward that Foxy was not a resident of, as her prison intake physical showed that she was not, in fact, expecting.

In a recent interview conducted by Robbie Daw for Towleroad (link to the interview below), Darren Hayes speaks about recent allegations (read: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6958172.stm)made against him. Here's a transcript of that part:

Robbie Daw: Let me you ask this, I know you recently had some allegations made against you and I know that that's not resolved yet and you've been advised to not talk about that -

Darren Hayes: Well, it's not that I've been advised. It's just that legally I'm not allowed but I'm happy to, you know, I'm happy to tell you. I mean, obviously, it's ridiculous, of course it's not true. But you know, there's a legal system, I mean, we live in a society that, you know, has laws that I absolutely respect and support. I was accused of doing something I did not do, and I was questioned, I was not charged, but the reality is I couldn't even think, let alone utter, a racist remark and that was what I accused, I was accused of racially insulting someone which is preposterous. But there's an investigation and I totally support that, the police have been beautiful, they have been wonderful. Basically, I've given evidence and that'll be investigated and believe me, when I can speak about it, I won't shut up.

Robbie: (laughs)

Darren: Yeah, it's a part of... it's the society we live in, people are entitled to make an accusation and you are then forced to, uh, prove otherwise. Weird but that's the reality of what's happening.

#1 This teenage B list actress may still be a teenager, but she also may be pregnant. The single actress has told producers it's just a little weight gain, but the producers want her to take a pregnancy test and prove to them she's not pregnant before they make any additional commitments. So far she has refused.

#2 This male singer kept trying to hit on women at the VMA after parties but was having no luck. Apparently each and everyone made it a point to tell him he was an ass and that you should never kiss and tell.

Spice Girls to pay tribute to Diana




10 Sep 2007

Pop sensations- Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm-are said to be recording a single for the late British royal.

Reformed girl band ‘Spice Girls’ will reportedly pay a tribute to late Princess of Wales Diana in the form of a song. Pop sensations- Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm-are said to be recording a single for the late British royal.

The girls will film a video to accompany the track ahead of their world tour, which begins later this year. Sources say that the lyrics of the new song will be: "Lady, you are an inspiration to us all, you made every woman stand so tall."

They say that the song’s lyrics will be a reference to the Princess' inspirational legacy, despite her death in 1997 following a car crash in Paris. "Geri was a huge fan and refers to Diana as the original Queen of Girl Power. She has been key in ensuring the single and video demonstrate that in a tasteful way," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling British newspaper The People.

Tori Amos Sings an Ode to Britney Spears

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

First Lindsay Lohan, now Britney Spears...

Between her underwhelming VMA peformance last Sunday -- lest we mention the evening's subsequent crotch shot -- and this summer's series of unfortunate head-shaving, paparazzi attacking events, one would be hard-pressed to find someone with heartfelt sympathy for Britney Spears. One, however, need not look any further than Tori Amos.

During the singer-songwriter's concert in Melbourne, Australia on September 11, a day when most words addressed tragic fare of another kind, Amos turned her attention to the embattled pop star. "I have a comment," Amos began. "We've all seen it on the news." She then launched into a lilting, if melancholy, improv, singing, "Britney, they set you up/ ...This is what it looks like when a star falls/You're a mother but you need a mother to pick you up/I'm a mother but I need a mother to pick me up."

"You see a lot of women today -- maybe in magazines -- crawling out of cars and thinking it's sexy," Amos recently told Spinner. "[And] for the most part, you don't hear guys going, 'Wow! I am just blown away by that beauty or by that woman's way. There's something about her.' No. Do you know what they do? They laugh. They laugh when we're spreading our legs and crawling out of a car. It's tragic. Ultimately, we demean ourselves."


Amos is currently on tour in support of her latest album, 'American Doll Posse.'

Pavarotti 'threatened to shoot himself' over wife


Pavarotti threatened to shoot himself as relationship with 'money-mad' wife fell apart

12th September 2007

Luciano Pavarotti wanted to shoot himself in despair over the state of his failing marriage as his life ebbed away, his closest friends claimed yesterday.

The 71-year- old tenor complained that his second wife and former secretary Nicoletta Mantovani, 37, tormented him and left him isolated from friends and family.

He said she was obsessed about how his £250million fortune would be divided after his death and had forced legal papers on him to sign.

The astonishing claims come from conductor Leone Magiera and his gynaecologist wife Lidia La Marca, friends of the legendary singer for more than 30 years.

They said Pavarotti, who died last week of pancreatic cancer, had asked that they speak out after his death. Their explosive account, published in an Italian newspaper, sent shockwaves around the country.

Dr La Marca told La Stampa newspaper how she and her husband had visited Pavarotti last month as he was treated for pneumonia in Modena hospital.

"In Luciano's room there was us, our daughter Eloisa, Nicoletta and the child she had with Luciano, Alice," she recalled.

"Luciano looked tired and it was hard work for him to talk but he was lucid, he talked about football and made a few jokes with Leone.

"Then at a certain point he surprised us all by asking everyone to leave and I was left alone with him. I saw Nicoletta's face go white."

Dr La Marca went on: "He just unleashed himself like a child.

"He said: 'I am in a bad way. In these last years Nicoletta is tormenting me, she makes me live alone, I am isolated, my friends don't come and see me anymore, she speaks badly about my daughters and she surrounds me with people I don't like.

Kylie Minogue Makes 'Head'-Lines'With New Hair Style

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kylie [Minogue] knows how to make head-lines - by changing her hairstyle every week.

She turned heads as she strolled along the street after lunch in South Kensington.

The bright September sunshine reflected the caramel lowlights sprinkled through her layered blonde bob, giving the pop star a subtle ginger look.

Just last week she kept a-head of contestants at a bowling tournament sporting a Sixties sex kitten look which would have made Brigitte Bardot jealous.

And the week before that the Australian singer had curled her tresses into Goldilocks for a dinner date at The Ivy.

All the styles have a carefree look of confidence.

And the 39-year-old can be confident of attracting admiring glances.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Nanny Rebecca Loos, perhaps the most aptly named Brit scandal figure since Divine Brown dallied with Hugh Grant, is coming to America! Roll out the caught red-handed carpet!

Nanny Rebecca allegedly had a torrid affair with her charges' daddy, soccer hottie David Beckham. Now it seems that Miss Loos wants to try her, er, hand at being a star in America -- it kinda worked for Posh, why not her?!

Becky has already made a big splash across the pond in such Z-lister hits as "Celebrity Love Island" and "The Farm." Welcome to the zoo!



I do not approve of her presence in AMERICA!  Our fierce biatch will NOT be happy (Posh not David).
