Avril Lavigne is a Scottish Singer

Avril Lavigne is out and about in a bright green hat while signing autographs in Glasgow, Scotland on Tuesday.

Some critics, however, were hoping to see more of the 23-year-old Canadian during the concert.

“Despite her best efforts, her performance fell short of expectations. It lasted only an hour and failed to include all 20 tracks performed at her home shows,” wrote the Daily Record. “The predominantly teenage crowd didn’t seem to mind and screamed their appreciation. But such a short show could hardly live up to the tour name, the Best Damn Tour.”

Ouija Board movie greenlit

David Berenbaum and Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes have been brought on deck to bring Hasbro's supernatural game "Ouija Board" to the big screen. The project is set up at Universal, where Hasbro has a six-year strategic partnership.

Platinum Dunes' Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce "Ouija" along with Hasbro.

Although the specific log line for the film is being kept under wraps, the film will be a supernatural adventure with the Ouija board playing an integral part of the story. The movie is not taking a "Jumanji"-like approach, which involved a game coming to life.

While divination or spiritual boards have been around for centuries, they began being sold as novelty items in the late 1800s, with the first Ouija board, one with an alphabet on it, being patented in 1890. Players' fingers are placed on a small planchette that mysteriously moves to letters and numbers in order to spell out messages from beyond the earthly realm.

This is NOT awesome, Michael Bay

Here’s Jennifer Garner’s Side of the Truth

Jennifer Garner puts on a pretty face (and a wedding gown) to shoot new scenes for her upcoming film, This Side of the Truth, at the Martha Mary Chapel in Sudbury, Massachusetts last Wednesday.

On her film break, Jen, 36, said hello and signed autographs for a lucky group of Hopkinton High School students. How sweet!

Earlier this month, Jen was on the set of Truth with her daughter, Violet, and with director/co-star Ricky Gervais.

This Side of the Truth is a comedy set on an alternate Earth where no-one has ever lied, and stars Gervais as a performer who tells the world’s first, coming to wield its power for personal gain.

She`s at it again!


Naomi Campbell has been charged with assaulting a police officer at London's Heathrow Airport, her lawyer told BBC News Thursday.

She has also been charged with one count of disorderly conduct and one count of using threatening, abusive words or behavior towards cabin crew.

The model, 37, was arrested in April aboard a British Airways flight when she threw a fit after three of her carry-on bags came up missing.

"Miss Campbell is bitterly disappointed that the prosecutors have advised her she is to be prosecuted for various offences," her lawyer said in a statement after she answered bail at a London police station Thursday.

"She respects that decision and she hopes this matter is dealt with expeditiously," he said.

She is due in court June 20.

Last year, Campbell was ordered to spend a week mopping floors at a NYC warehouse for assaulting her maid with a cell phone.

Sharon Stone, meet your karma

Sharon Stone may have apologized for her controversial remarks on China’s massive earthquake but it's not stopping the actress from getting her own dose of bad karma.

Reacting to the rising furor over Stone’s comments at the Cannes Film Festival, Dior China said Thursday that it is removing and recalling all advertisements featuring Stone. Meanwhile, local press reported that citizens were ripping down billboards in several locations.

“In light of Sharon Stone’s inappropriate comments and their negative impact, Dior China has decided to withdraw [her ads] immediately and stop using Sharon Stone’s image in any advertising, marketing and commercial activities," the company said. A spokeswoman said Stone had only been used for limited advertising on select cosmetic product lines and plans were in place before this controversy to use a different model.

In an interview widely disseminated on, Stone said at Cannes last week that “the Chinese” had been unkind to Tibetans. Stone, speaking about the March 14 uprising in Lhasa that led to a violent government crackdown, said the devastating Sichuan earthquake may have been karmic retribution for China.

“I’ve been concerned with how we should deal with the Olympics, because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a good friend of mine,” said Stone. “And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened and I though, is that karma – when you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?” Stone said.

Following several days of outrage on Chinese Web sites, Dior China's press office in Shanghai on Thursday released an apology from Stone.

Bill Murray's Wife Files for Divorce, Issues Shocking Allegations

CaddySmacked? Murray's Wife Claims Abuse

Bill Murray's wife is no joke ... she's filed for divorce from the funnyman, alleging he is addicted to drugs, abandoned her, cheated and physically abused her.

Jennifer Butler Murray, Bill's wife of ten years, filed court documents on May 12 in a Charleston, S.C. family court. The couple has a home in the area.

According to the Charleston Post & Courier, Jennifer Murray is asking a judge to issue a restraining order that will keep Bill Murray away from her home. She's also asked the court to determine if the couple's $7 million pre-nup is valid -- according to the agreement, Jennifer gets the big pay out if they divorce.

According to court docs, Jennifer and the couple's four children moved out of the family home in 2006 because of what she says was her husband's "adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment." The docs also say the star "hit his wife in the face and then told her she was 'lucky he didn't kill her' " and that this happened more than once during their marriage. Holy Groundhog's Day!

Sienna's fattening film

Sienna Miller binged on fried food to gain weight for her new film.

The actress was delighted when she was ordered to pile on the pounds for her role as Welsh poet Dylan Thomas' wife in the forthcoming 'The Edge of Love'.

Sienna said: "I just stuffed my face for the months that we were in production. It wasn't hard for me. We were staying in this incredibly eccentric Welsh manor house. I had huge fried breakfasts, pasties for lunch and lots of toasted sandwiches."

Despite being happy to bulk up for the role, the actress admits she suffers from the same insecurities as all women.

She said: "My butt wobbles when I walk. Seriously, I have a lardy a**e. I have days when I wake up, look in the mirror and go, 'Yuk'."

Sienna stars alongside Keira Knightley in the movie, and has nothing but admiration for her fellow Brit.

She added to Britain's Elle magazine: "Keira is the most beautiful woman in the world. We totally bonded on the movie and it was so amazing to find a girlfriend in the business. In Hollywood they don't know what to make of us because we both drink, smoke and eat."

Chart-topper Adele looks beyond her native U.K.

Adele Adkins: Loves Ella and Etta, but still cries for the Spice Girls

By Steven Schelling
May 22 2008

It’s often said that age ain’t nothing but a number. Luckily for Adele Adkins, those numbers just keep adding up. At the age of 18, Adele (who, like all proper pop stars, performs under a single name) was signed to a record deal after songs posted to her MySpace page by a friend caught a record exec’s ear. Some 12 months later, her smoky, jazz-flecked R&B vocals — which led to inevitable comparisons to the U.K.’s last great white hype, Amy Winehouse — played a large part in her debut album, 19, winning both the inaugural BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice Award and the BBC’s Sound of 2008 Award, and entering the British charts at number one.

Now barely 20, Adele is poised to conquer this side of the pond with an intensive North American tour and a raft of influential network TV appearances. WE spoke with Adele from a hotel room in Dublin as she wound down her latest U.K. tour.

The tone of your album is pretty melancholy. Are you a morose person by nature?

I don’t think so. I have times when I just lock myself in a room in the dark and that’s when I write, so maybe that’s why this album is that way. I mean, the album is about two different boys, two different reasons to feel like that.

You’ve said that your introduction to your major influences, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, was by accident.

I was at the HMV in Oxford Circus, and I went down to the classics section — a big glass-walled room in the basement, like a room in your parents’ house you’re not supposed to go in — and I bought the albums for the hairdos on the cover. My cousin was studying to be a hairdresser and [the CDs] were two for 10 pounds, and they were going to be a gift. But I never gave them to her. I didn’t listen to them either for, like, two years. I was listening to Papa Roach.

Adele Only Writes Songs When She's Suicidal


The 'Cold Shoulder' singer doubts whether she will ever pen any upbeat or cheerful material because she is always "too busy" when she's feeling happy.

She said: "I haven't got time to write songs when I'm happy as I'm out having fun. It's when I'm threatening to kill myself I write. You probably won't hear a happy song from me, ever."

Adele, 20, also defended herself against critics who say she is too young to be singing about heartbreak.

She added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "If people think that I shouldn't be writing about that then they can f**k off and don't listen to my music. I think a lot of people think, 'Oh she's only 20 what does she think she's writing about?' but I bet my relationship with the boy the album is about was a lot deeper than a lot of 40-year-olds. People are naive if they say that about a young person. The relationship was deep and I wanted to write about that."

Adele's debut single, 'Chasing Pavements' reached number two in the UK singles chart in January when the singer was just 19.

Duffy owes career to nose-breaking sister

Soul star Duffy is thankful to her sister for breaking her nose when she was younger - because the accident helped her to develop her trademark singing voice.

The singer, famed for her husky Welsh tones, recalls being terrified after the incident - but she is now convinced the injury was actually a blessing in disguise.

The Mercy hitmaker, real name Aimee Ann Duffy, tells, "When I was four-years-old my sister blindfolded me and chased me round the garden. She forgot that I was blindfolded and I ran into a fence and broke my nose. I remember it as well because it was so extreme, and I was really worried.

"I went to the doctor, I had broke my nose, everything was a mess. I was screaming and upset, and the doctor said, 'Don't worry. One day, she'll be a really good singer.'

"So, I don't know - maybe I owe it to my sister for breaking my nose!"



James McAvoy Tipped for Hobbit Role

Scottish actor James McAvoy has been tipped to take the lead role in the new movie version of Lord Of The Rings prequel The Hobbit.

J.R.R. Tolkien's novel is set to be turned into a major blockbuster under the direction of Guillermo del Toro and filming is due to begin in New Zealand later this year.

Sir Ian McKellen will reprise his role as Gandalf and McAvoy is rumoured to be the favourite to take the lead role of hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

The character was played by Ian Holm in the previous films of the fantasy franchise, but he is due to be replaced by a high profile star for the new movie.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "A number of names have been doing the rounds, including Daniel Radcliffe and Jack Black, but James (McAvoy) is the one the film's bosses really want. They're expected to have talks soon so hopefully it could be confirmed in the not too distant future."

And director del Toro adds, "I can tell you it's down to a few names that we all agree upon. For our first choice, completely magically we all have the same name." 


Sex & The City Shoes Coming to a PayLess Near You

Sex and the City turned high-end shoe labels like Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik into household words. But not every Sex fan can afford to buy pumps that can come with a four-digit sticker price.

Famed SATC stylist Patricia Field saw a need for budget-friendly and fashionable shoes and took on the challenge last winter with her first collection of footwear for Payless. And the day after the gals of Sex and the City walked the red carpet at New York’s Radio City Music Hall during the New York City premiere Field took the opportunity to host a fete for her latest Payless shoe designs at her groovy apartment/studio with no sticker-shock in sight.

Her blue Payless Empress Sandals with diamante studs go for $25, while her ballet flats are selling for just $20 and the demure Heiress Pump is $35. “I love some Louboutins and some Manolos,” said Field. “But personally, it kills me to spend that kind of money on a shoe. I’m much happier getting a shoe for less money that looks gorgeous.”

But can the quality level of Field’s designs for Payless compare? “Payless makes a really nice quality,” the designer tells PEOPLE. “If they made junk, I wouldn’t want to do it, but look at this stitching — it’s gorgeous. This is as good as Manolo.”

"The Wackness" Goes Viral w/ "Luke's Dope Show"

 Earlier today I got an e-mail from my good friend Luke Shapiro. Who is he? Luke is actually the star of the awesome little indie movie The Wackness. As part of the viral marketing for the film, Sony Pictures Classics has launched Luke's rad homemade show on YouTube. Our good friend Luke hosts the talk show with his doorman named Miguel as the DJ and superintendent Tony. This video is wack - but that's probably good considering it's for The Wackness. Anyway, I thought this was definitely a fun little attempt to draw some additional attention to this brilliant indie film. The first episode can be found below!

Just so you understand, The Wackness is set in 1994 and this video is supposed to elicit feelings of that "era" - the 90s. Luke Shapiro is kind of a loner and a loser. However, he's also one of New York City's biggest pot dealers, who pushes a cart of "ices" around all day selling weed to clients of all ages.

Spears tipped for Grease role


Britney Spears has been tipped for a role on Broadway - playing Sandy in the stage version of Grease.

The singer proved her acting credentials with a highly successful stint in US sitcom How I Met Your Mother and was recently linked with a move to the London stage.

Spears was reportedly in talks to star in a West End production of Tennessee Williams' play A Streetcar Named Desire - playing the lead role of Blanche DuBois.

And now the Toxic hitmaker is once again rumoured to be considering a turn on stage - this time in hit musical Grease.

A source tells British newspaper Metro, "The producers were bouncing around the idea of casting Britney in the role of Sandy.

"They're recasting the roles in July and they thought that Britney looked like a Sandy. She would be terrific."


Sexy Star Bikinis.

Lauren Conrad

The Hills star Lauren Conrad (in Vitamin A) works with celebrity trainer Jarett Del Bene to keep her body bikini-ready year-round. He keeps her on a high-intensity circuit training program just two or three times a week. "It includes full-body movements, boxing and lots of lunges, squats and step ups," says Del Bene. For a do-it-yourself circuit workout, combine a hike or run with breaks for lunges, squats and step-ups.

Kate Hudson

Fool’s Gold star Kate Hudson loves the California sunshine—and not just when she's sporting a little Indah bikini. Instead of sticking to the gym, Hudson breaks a sweat outside by running stairs, hiking, scuba diving, jogging or biking. “Kate is outdoors every day—she loves fresh air and a change of scenery while she works out,” says her trainer Nicole Stuart.

Billie Piper talks getting into character

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

BILLIE Piper has admitted she had to watch old episodes of Doctor Who to get the accent right for her return as Rose Tyler.

The starlet, who married actor Laurence Fox last year, was concerned she would not sound chavvy enough after a string of posher roles – so she rented out DVDs of the BBC1 series.

Billie, 25, told Doctor Who magazine: “I had to watch a lot of the old stuff, so I could remember certain things about the character, because I’ve been playing posh birds since I left the programme.

“Rose is a bit of a chav, bless her. I needed to hear the voice and watch the posture and everything.”

She added: “But then the minute you get on set and you’ve got Russell T Davies’s scripts – he remembers how to write so well for Rose – you’re back there on day one, really. Well, I hope! I haven’t seen the rushes yet.”

Playing posh birds since Doctor Who? Billie’s obviously forgotten about her role as a HOOKER in ITV2’s Secret Diary Of A Call Girl.

Scott Speedman talks Strangers vs Funny Games

This Friday the latest home invasion movie hits theaters, The Strangers, which follows a couple in a remote suburban house who are targeted by three dangerous masked strangers. The resulting clashes force the couple to go well beyond what they thought themselves capable of in order to survive.

Last week Scott Speedman phoned SpookyDan to chat about the upcoming home invasion flick THE STRANGERS, which arrives in theaters everywhere Friday (May 30) from Rogue Pictures. He was enthusiastic about his part as he told us that what really make it scary is how believable the film is.

”I feel like this is so different from UNDERWORLD,” he tells Bloody-Disgusting. “It feels much more personal, and like it could absolutely happen. There was something about this that set it apart in such a major way. During the first 30 pages of the script you really have no idea what kind of film this is. (Director) [Bryan] Bertino planned the slow burn aspect right from the start; I don’t think he wanted you to get comfortable. As I was reading the script I got up and locked the door, I was pretty freaked out!”

Earlier this year another home invasions film hit theaters (WIP’s FUNNY GAMES, talked about the differences between FUNNY GAMES AND THE STRANGERS.

“I thought Funny Games was hilarious, it’s a satire more than a horror movie. Its hilarious, I was rooting for the people to get killed. You can certainly make a comparison to THE STRANGERS, but really its just plot, and that’s where the similarity ends. I personally am not the biggest expert of horror films, but I can only tell you from reading and watching it, it really is the scariest film I have ever seen, it’s just a really, really great take on these kinds of films!”

Speedman wrapped up with his thoughts on the UNDERWORLD series going further. “I think my time as an UNDERWORLD guy is over. The story can always change, but I think this third one will be the last.”

THE STRANGERS hits theaters everywhere this Friday (May 30).

The newly crowned "American Idol" winner says he doesn't abide by the conventional three-day wait period after a date.

"I don't really believe in any sort of theories," the 25-year-old singer told The Associated Press on Thursday morning before performing on NBC's "Today" show. "I just kind of call when I call."

Which begs the question: Has he called — or texted — "Idol" alum Kimberly Caldwell? Cook said Tuesday on "Live With Regis and Kelly" that he recently had a dinner date with Caldwell, 26, who appeared on the second season of the top-rated Fox show. The verdict: he had a good time, and they'll "probably hang out again."

Two days later, surrounded by screaming fans outside Rockefeller Center, Cook responded diplomatically to a Caldwell question by the AP: "Great girl, we hung out and we'll see what happens."

Cook, from Blue Springs, Mo., defeated 17-year-old David Archuleta last week in a landslide victory. The rocker/ex-bartender transformed into this season's heartthrob around the time he got rid of his unpopular (and unflattering) comb-forward haircut and grew facial scruff.

When asked if his in-season makeover contributed to his success, Cook said: "I don't really know. I think, you know, for me it was time to get a haircut. I forgot to shave one week. It's really all it is. ... I hope that at the end of the day, I did well on my own musical merit."

Cook and Archuleta, from Murray, Utah, each took the stage on the "Today" plaza. Signs in the audience read: "Cookie I am your oldest fan. `64.' Can I have a hug?" and "Life is betta with Archuleta." Someone yelled: "I'm missing school for you!"

Archuleta performed "Think of Me" from "The Phantom of the Opera." Cook crooned "The Time of My Life," which ranks third on Billboard's list of the "Hot 100" singles.

Archuleta, who has a penchant for socially conscious songs, said he hopes his post-"Idol" album will include music that's "fun and still has some meaning to it."

Cook said he'll begin recording his album (slated for release in the fall) this summer while crossing the country on the "American Idol's Live!" Tour. The tour, which features the show's top 10 contestants, kicks off July 1 in Glendale, Ariz., and ends in September in Tulsa, Okla.

"I'm gonna do like a calypso jazz fusion record," he joked. "No, I mean big surprise: my record will probably be a rock record."

Angelina Jolie's action-packed motorcycle chase in ‘Tomb Raider’ has been voted the ‘Favourite Biking Movie Moment Of All Time,’ with ‘Indiana Jones’ failing to make it to the top five.

The actress' bike chase in the 2001 hit computer game adaptation landed the top spot in poll issued by U. K. bike insurers Bennetts - beating legendary actor Steve MCQueen's iconic chase sequence to the Swiss border in ‘The Great Escape,’ reports Contactmusic.

Third on the list was Tom Cruise's high-fuelled motorbike adventure in ‘Top Gun’ while special effect blockbuster ‘The Matrix Reloaded’ landed the forth spot.

Rounding off the top five was Arnold Schwarzenegger being chased by the T-100 through the streets in ‘Terminator 2.’

While speaking at the launch of his latest documentary, Of Time and the City, at the Cannes Film Festival, the Liverpool-born director called for British directors to make films about their own country and not America.

One of the few underappreciate series offering new episodes is Mad Men. To go along with Men, EW compiled a list of 10 of the most underappreciated shows on TV or 10 Shows You Should Be Watching.

Here’s their list:

1. Breaking Bad
2. Reaper
3. Flight of the Conchords
4. Friday Night Lights
5. Greek
6. The Paper
7. Gossip Girl
8. In Treatment
9. Brotherhood
10. Bones

Admittedly, we haven’t watched a non-reality show since America’s Next Top Model first went on the air so we’re hardly the ones who could offer any insightful commentary.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Luc Bourdon killed.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

SHIPPAGAN, New Brunswick -- Luc Bourdon, a promising rookie defenseman with the Vancouver Canucks, was killed Thursday when his motorcycle struck a tractor-trailer in a crash near his hometown. He was 21.

Luc Bourdon appeared in 27 games for the Canucks last season and scored two goals.

His death was confirmed by sister Eve Bourdon and stepmother Maryse Godin. Both declined further comment when reached at the family's home in Shippagan.

"Luc was a winner; he was a competitor," said Kent Hughes, his agent. "There was no quit in him. He persevered through a lot. He was a great guy and a great teammate."

Police in Shippagan wouldn't confirm the identity of the victim but said a motorcyclist was killed in the early afternoon on a road between Shippagan and Lemeque.

Bourdon was the first-round draft pick of the Canucks in 2005, selected 10th overall. He split time this season with the Canucks and the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League. In 27 games with the Canucks, he scored twice and had no assists.

"The American Hockey League is saddened by the sudden loss of this outstanding young man and promising young player," AHL president and CEO David Andrews said in a statement "The entire AHL family offer its thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences to Luc's family, the Manitoba Moose and the Vancouver Canucks."

He played on the Canadian team that won the gold medal at the 2007 world junior hockey championship in Vancouver and made the tournament's all-star team. He helped Canada win another gold at the 2007 tournament in Sweden.

"Luc was an extremely talented player with a bright future," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said in a statement. "He brought great passion to the game and was a valued team member on and off the ice. He will be greatly missed."

Bourdon played for Val d'Or, Moncton and Cape Breton of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League before turning pro.

"All members of the NHLPA and our staff are deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of Luc Bourdon. Through hard work and perseverance, Luc was able to realize his dream of becoming an NHL player. Luc had a promising life and career ahead of him and he will certainly be missed," NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly said in a statement. "The NHLPA's thoughts and prayers go out to the Bourdon family, his teammates and his many friends."

Vancouver Canucks Statement on the Passing of Luc Bourdon

Bourdon Vancouver, B.C. – It is with deep regret that the Vancouver Canucks today announced defenceman Luc Bourdon passed away in a motor vehicle accident on Thursday morning. Bourdon was 21 years old.

“We are deeply saddened by today’s news and on behalf of the entire Vancouver Canucks organization, I would like to extend my sincere sympathies to Luc’s family,” said Canucks General Manager, Mike Gillis. “Luc was an extremely talented player with a bright future. He brought great passion to the game and was a valued team member on and off the ice. He will be greatly missed.”

Hutton Blasts Sex And The City

Model Lauren Hutton has hit out at Sex And The City's portrayal of promiscuous women - blaming "gay writers" for creating the stereotype that single women are "sluts."

During a bizarre rant on U.S. breakfast programme The Today Show on Thursday, Hutton confessed she had never seen TV hit Sex and the City - but she claimed it promoted the untrue myth that it's natural for women to be sexually promiscuous.

She said, "It's written by guys, who happen to be gay, who are sluts. That's what I think.

"Let's face it most men are sluts. That's what testosterone is supposed to do. As a hunter, if you stayed alive after 30, nature wanted your genes out there. Women were just trying to get the best sperm to make a masterpiece.

"You have a bunch a guys who are sluts, writing for women and telling them they are supposed to act like this."

Oh, come on. The show's exaggerated on purpose. More than that, though, I'm not sure why she mentioned the gay part--it sounds dangerously close to saying "gay men = slutty." :\ Here comes the wank!

LC and Lo's BreakFast At The Griddle

Sometimes with all of the crazy commotion of Tinseltown, a girl just needs time with a good pal. And earlier today Lauren Conrad and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth took a moment to relax.

The “Hills” ladies were spotted on their way to grab breakfast at The Griddle Café on Sunset Ave in Los Angeles, California.

And LC looked hip in a black tank top underneath a thin grey cardigan sweater with a pair of jeans and her usual celebrity shades.

Meanwhile, Lo opted for a sexy orange scoopneck shirt with a pair of dark brown flair-legged trousers and a pair of flip flops.

Tori & Dean: No Longer Inn Love

Los Angeles (E! Online) - After taking a rather unsuccessful stab at running a bed and breakfast on their Oxygen reality series, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, Tori Spelling and her hubby, Dean McDermott, return to Tinseltown for season three of the show, now titled Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. 

"I chose to go back because it's home and we had such a loyal fan base," says a very pregnant Tori, who is expecting her second child next month.  Now that the two are back in La-La Land with their one-year-old son, Liam, will Tori's estranged mom, Candy, be gracing them with her presence?

"No family will appear, because I didn't want to use them as tools for promoting the show," insists Tori. "There's been so much drama that it will seem more like a gimmick at this point." So exploiting mommy dearest for the sake of ratings would be wrong, but aiming the lens at your kids around the clock is completely legit. Got it.

Besides, who needs grandma around when the cameras are, according to Tori, "like family to him [Liam]. He's really comfortable."

Grandpa Aaron would be so proud.

mileys first kissfor $150,000

'Miley Cyrus’ first kiss caught on film is going to be big money, it seems. The L.A. Times is reporting that a picture of Miley Cyrus’ first kiss could go for between $30,000 to $150,000.

Why such a big dollar range? Well, it all depends on who Miley Cyrus’ first kiss is with — a Jonas brother smooch would likely grab the higher rate.'

Lindsay Lohan's father wants Kim Kardashian to look after his daughter. Recovering alcoholic Michael reportedly approached Kim - who stars in US reality TV show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' with sisters Khloe and Kourtney - and her boyfriend Reggie Bush at a New York party this weekend and asked them to watch out for the troubled 21-year-old star.

An onlooker said: "Michael went right up to Kim and Reggie and introduced himself. He asked them to look after Lindsay out in Los Angeles and keep a watchful eye on her. "Kim and Reggie were very polite and patient with Michael, but were quite shocked by his request as it was the first time they had met him."

Meanwhile, Kim was reportedly furious after a large sedan car was sent to pick her up from the airport on Saturday afternoon (24.05.08) because it wasn't big enough to carry her and her seven suitcases.

A limousine was then sent to transport Kim and her luggage to the Hamptons, New York, for her less-than-24-hour trip to host the White Party. The starlet was also left fuming after a look-a-like attended the party and claimed she was two months pregnant with Reggie's baby.

Speaking about the situation on Ryan Seacrest's US radio show, Kim said: "Isn't that crazy? I guess this one promoter's going around, getting the money from the club - you know, whatever an appearance fee would be whatever he's made up, signing my name on a fake contract, or a real contract - and bringing a look-a-like of me."

OTH Season 5 on DVD!

Two weeks ago we reported that had begun taking pre-orders for One Tree Hill - The Complete 5th Season on DVD (see the link below), even though the studio had not announced the title just yet. As a result, Amazon didn't have a street date at the time, but this morning Warner Home Video made it official by formally announcing this 5-disc package, and giving a street date of August 26th. Here's their description, followed by more details:

Hello again! Four-and-a-half years after the searing and surprising events that marked their final days at Tree Hill High, old friends return to their North Carolina hometown. Some of them reached the goals they set as teens: Lucas published his novel, Brooke rocked the fashion world as an acclaimed couturière and Haley became the teacher she always yearned to be. Some didn't: Peyton crashed and burned in L.A., and Nathan saw his promise of pro hoops glory evaporate in a single, violent moment. But once they're back home in this involving 5-Disc, 18-Episode Season Five Set, everyone discovers so much is the same: love, friendship, challenges, triumphs, laughs, tears...and dreams. As Lucas says, it's just the beginning.

Just as Amazon had said in their listing, the list price is $59.98 SRP, but you can pre-order it as of this writing for just $38.99. Running time is 810 minutes, with video in anamorphic widescreen and audio in English - Dolby Surround 5.1. Subtitles are going to be in English, French and Spanish. Here is a list of the various bonus material included:

* Unaired Scenes
* "One Tree Hill Fast Forward": Show Creators and Cast Share Their Excitement in Moving the Storyline Four Years Later in the Characters' Lives
* "One Tree Hill at 100": Commemorating the 100th Episode Milestone
* "One Tree Hill Musical Stars": Guest Stars Kevin Federline and Kate Voegele at Work Behind the Scenes on Set and Making Music
* Commentary on 2 Episodes by Series Creator Mark Schwahn, and Key Cast and Crew
* Gag Reel
* Plus a bonus offer for a Digital Copy of the entire season!

If the bottom-most item sounds familiar to some of you, then you are possibly also fans of Supernatural as well. Warner recently announced that their Sept. 2nd release of Supernatural - The Complete 3rd Season would be the first TV-DVD season set to include a bonus Digital Copy of the entire season's worth of episodes. The second one will be One Tree Hill - The Complete 5th Season on DVD. We've learned that these digital copies on both Supernatural and One Tree Hill will not be "on-disc" copies, however...there's not enough room on the discs to store them! So they will be provided via download, similar to a method Warner used to call "e-copy" in the past, and available in either Windows Media (PC) or in iTunes (Mac) versions. It's an easy way to get "digital file" copies of the feature that's on the DVD, downloaded to your computer or your compatible media player (such as a video iPod, or an Archos) at no additional charge. Hooray!


Harvey Korman Died Today

Harvey Korman, the tall, versatile comedian who won four Emmys for his outrageously funny contributions to "The Carol Burnett Show" and was seen to hilarious effect on the big screen in "Blazing Saddles," died Thursday. He was 81.

Korman died at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago, his family said in a statement released by the hospital.

A natural second banana, Korman gained attention on "The Danny Kaye Show," appearing in skits with the star. He joined the show in its second season in 1964 and continued until it was canceled in 1967. That same year he became a cast member in the first season of "The Carol Burnett Show."

90210 Spin-Off Star: "There Are Already Romances On Set"

Actor Ryan Eggold says "the chemistry so far is fantastic" among his co-stars of The CW's new 90210 spin-off – and there's even an on-set romance. "We may get sick of each other, but we haven't yet," the actor told at the premiere of The Promotion in L.A. Wednesday. "Already friendships [are] forming and it's a really good group of very excited people," he said.

Asked if he is dating, Eggold told Us: "Single and I will tell you that there are already romances on set." Any on-set love may heat up when the cast starts shooting in June. "There is no set yet so I have no idea what the hell's going to happen a year from now," he added.

But Eggold (who plays Ryan Matthews, an English teacher at West Beverly High) was coy when pressed if he's dating a cast-mate. "That I can't say," he said. "That's how it works. I don't know who made up the rules. " Original 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are also returning to their old zip code – along with Full House alum Lori Loughlin.


This show is already overexposed and it hasn't even started yet.

Jailhouse Love

TQ, formerly of Cash Money, is now talking about the ‘Jailhouse Love’ that went down in the NO:

Too much funny sh*t was going on at Cash Money. I’m sitting at the house in the East one day Wayne comes in and walks over to Baby and kisses him in the mouth. I didn’t just see that so I ain’t gonna say sh*t. When Wayne gets ready to leave, they do it again.

I guess some of them other ni**as recognized the look on my face and ran to the rescue. “T, don’t trip, that’s jailhouse love.” Jailhouse love? What the f**k? Them two ni**as and never been to jail! I’ve sent my fair share of Kites homie and I ain’t never heard of two ni**as kissing as being jailhouse love unless they was… ya dig? That sh*t was disturbing to me pimp. They say it’s a father-son thing. Ni**a I ain’t kissing my daddy in the mouth!

To each his own… I ain’t questioning a ni**a’s sexuality cuz I just don’t get down like that, and I know for a fact that both of them cats like women. But it f**ks me up when them ni**as do that sh*t in public… Everybody always asks me about that picture. Well did y’all forget about 106 and Park?? Ni**a, my neighborhood rode me for months about that sh*t… I had to speak on it cuz y’all wanted to know.

That’s my spin on the whole “kissing” sh*t. I’m done with it.

Chris Brown Drops $100K on Diamonds for Rihanna

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After spending months denying their romance, singers Chris Brown and Rihanna are getting serious... about their gift giving. According to OK! magazine, Brown recently spent $100,000 on two ruby and diamond necklaces for his 20-year-old pop star girlfriend. Rihanna reportedly returned the thought with a blinged out cross pendant necklace for Brown.

“Rihanna gave specific instructions about Chris’ gift,” designer Jason Arasheben told OK!. “She was very particular about wanting the cross to match his other jewelry.

The jeweler also sold 19-year-old Chris the gift for his Barbados-born beauty.

“He went for the heart theme,” Arasheben explained. “He said, ‘She’s going to love this because she loves hearts.’”


Tyra Banks article in the NYTimes Magazine!


Tyra Banks has 275 smiles. Like a star athlete who has perfected a jump shot or a curveball, Banks has studied, honed and mastered the smile. In her arsenal are the “surprise smile,” the “angry but still smiling” smile, the “flirting with boyfriend” smile and the “commercial” smile, which, like the rest of Tyra’s smiles, was designed and perfected when Banks, who is now 34, began modeling at 15. From the start of her career, when she was virtually plucked from an all-girl Catholic high school in Los Angeles and whisked off to Paris, to her days as a mass-market first-name-only supermodel strutting the catwalk in her underwear for Victoria’s Secret, Banks always treated modeling as a kind of beautiful science. Then, and now, the smiles were her secret weapons: they could compel, manipulate, seduce. Banks did not become a model to be a muse to designers or because she loved fashion. Modeling — and smiling — was a skill that could, if engineered and managed carefully, change the course of your life.

Of course, I am also going to predict that he will not amount to much of anything. I am also relatively sure about this, though only about as sure as I am that he might be very successful. Do you follow? Yeah, me neither.

Y'know, I think I'm beginning to really like her for some reason. She seems like she has a good head on her shoulders and is well-versed for a 15 year old. The only time I don't like her is when she's next to Joe Jonas, haha. Fun fact: she's also taking the virgin route until marriage and has a necklace that says "True Love Waits." ETA: Another fun fact: Her full name is Demetria Devonne Lovato. :)

That being said, I also wanted to point out on a semi-unrelated note that the marketing for Camp Rock is ridiculous. I think Disney's putting all of their eggs in one basket and I really don't think this will even achieve HSM status. The story isn't as relatable as HSM was, and neither are the songs, really. And although Joe Jonas cannot even TOUCH Zac Efron, I think JB are the real main attraction of the film, not Demi.

Madonna refuses to pay $92K hotel bill

The singer is infuriated that a camera crew filmed her washroom at her hotel in France.

Madonna has refused to pay a U.S. $92,800 hotel bill after she discovered a film crew snuck in and filmed her bathroom.

The British tabloids and French paper Le Parisien report that the French crew filmed the bathroom at the Carlton Intercontinental hotel where Madonna stayed during the Cannes Film Festival. The footage aired on France's Canal Plus channel.

Le Parisien claims the hotel let the camera crew in before Madonna arrived.

Madonna's bathroom habits have made headlines before. reported in 2006 that Madonna's tour contracted stated that a new toilet seat had to be provided at every venue on her Confessions tour. It had to plastic-wrapped, no one else could use it and it had to be destroyed so it couldn't be sold on eBay.

This incident comes soon after reports that Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie are splitting up.

went to rehab for "foot" surgery.

Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler says he checked into to a rehab facility earlier this month to recover from foot surgeries to repair problems caused by his stage moves.

"The doctors told me the pain in my feet could be corrected but it would require a few surgeries over time," Tyler says in a statement released Thursday. "The 'foot repair' pain was intense, greater than I'd anticipated. The months of rehabilitative care and the painful strain of physical therapy were traumatic. I really needed a safe environment to recuperate where I could shut off my phone and get back on my feet. Make no mistake, Aerosmith has no plans to stop rocking. There's a new album to record, then another tour."

According to the statement, Tyler was treated at the center after series of surgeries and post-operative physical therapy "to correct long-time foot injuries resulting from his trademark athletic performance onstage."

The statement follows reports the 60-year-old singer was being treated instead for substance abuse.


Mischa Barton Refuses To Promote her new movie "You And I Film"

Former TV Actress Party Girl

Actress Mischa Barton has fuelled reports she is unhappy with her new movie You And I, after reportedly refusing to promote it.

The former The O.C. star initially sparked rumours of her dissatisfaction when she failed to attend the film's premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France earlier this month.

She insisted she "was never due to go", but now You And I director Roland Joffe cannot locate Barton in London to complete promo duties in the British capital.

He tells New York gossip column PageSix, "She hasn't pulled out of interviews, she's pulled out of everything... Her room is here, she is here, but trying to get the two together has just been impossible. We just don't know where Mischa is."

In the film, Barton plays a Russian lesbian who falls in love at a t.A.T.u concert.

However, after another long afternoon in an L.A. courtroom, during which the 26-year old singer's medical and pyschological condition were reviewed in length, the commissioner ruled that Britney's health continues to be "somewhat tenuous" and that she is still incapable of making decisions for herself.

John Mayer is blogging crazy again!

Yo Pete-

I could have easily written this to you in an email, but you've been so cool to write positive things about me on your blog(s) that I want to respond in kind.

Here's using blogs for something other than pointing out boob jobs and slight limps.

-Ting, ting, ting-

You're one of the best eggs in the music industry, hands down. With as much talent as you have, I'd expect you'd have some eccentric ego, but from what I can tell you seem to have none. (That actually makes you more talented, by way of some crazy cosmic arithmetic.) Every time we get the chance to hang I'm inspired by your creativity. Your mind is like a stadium with the dome open... you have ZERO judgment when it comes to things that move you. When most people get the feeling they might like an idea, or a shirt, they run it through a series of filters; 'what should I think, given my personal attributes?' 'How does this read?' 'What would Kanye do?' You have what makes talented people successful for years and years - a brave sense of self and a completely authentic relationship with your tastes.

That's why I'll throw a guitar in the car and be there anytime you need me. It's a short list. (I'm lazy.)

Isn't it weird when you're alone in your hotel room and the ice in that bucket melts, shifting it all and making it sound like someone's hiding in your closet? That always gets me.


Point is, I think the world of you. And wish you all the happiness your artsy head will accept. Fame is just one big lesson in being a man, and you're doing a bang up job...

Best to you and your lovely wife...

Shaquille O'Neal and Josh Duhamel

Cutie Josh Duhamel stands tall whether he's next to his on-screen love Kristen Bell or off-screen fiancée Fergie, but he had nothing on Shaquille O'Neal yesterday at the set of When In Rome. We don't know if Shaq was just checking out filming in the East Village or if he has a cameo role in the film.

Josh Duhamel is 6' 3"
Shaquille O'Neill is 7' 1"

I'm in awe of how large Shaq is.  It's weird seeing him stand around normal sized people.

South African singer/songwriter Vusi Mahlasela duets with Jem on "You Will Make It," while "I Want You To..." is described as a Latin-flavored song originally intended for a Cut Chemist album.

Carey Gets 'Bye' With Her 20th Top 10

Carey Gets 'Bye' With Her 20th Top 10

Mariah notches her 20th career Rhythmic top 10 as "Bye Bye" rises 11-9, extending her record among females; runner-up Janet has tallied 15 top 10s. Carey also moves within one of Ludacris for the chart's all-time best top 10 total. 
The format icon claimed her first top 10 (and first of seven No. 1s) with "Dreamlover." Of the acts with at least 10 top 10s at the format, only Janet and R. Kelly have had head starts over Carey. Before "Dreamlover" bowed in August 1993, R. Kelly launched with Public Announcement on the premier Nielsen BDS-fed Rhythmic chart dated Oct. 3, 1992, while Janet first appeared with "That's the Way Love Goes" in May 1993.

Kirsten Dunst's Pants Are On Fire

Everyone’s favorite tipsy greaser Kirsten Dunst is reportedly claiming her month-long stay at rehab center-to-the-stars Cirque Lodge was just a quick fix for feeling down in the dumps. As the actress recently told E! Online, she was not in a state of Natasha Lyonne meth-face madness, nor was she popping pills or playing the Brits’ favorite party game of Booze Snorting — she was just depressed! But when we gave the Cirque Lodge's admission guidelines a quick once over, we found no mention of specific plans aimed at those suffering simply from depression. So we decided to place a call to the Cirque Lodge today to see if our dear Kirsten just might be telling the truth. Sadly, as the Magic 8-Ball might say, "Outlook Not So Good." Here's what the spokesperson we spoke to today told us:

We address chemical dependency issues. We’re not at all a purely psychiatric facility like Bridges To Recovery, and each patient must undergo a detox for their chemical dependency, whether they’re coming off benzos, you know, cocktails in a pill, or harder substances. We do treat underlying issues, but if someone is suffering solely from chronic depression, we’re not the place to go.

As much as we hate delivering bad news (really!), it looks as though Dunst is simply pulling a Mendes by chalking up whatever uppers, downers and brand of Grandpa's Lemonade she'd been overdoing to a much more pleasant-sounding "problem." Not to mention her continuous public appearances in New York this month looking "wobbly" and generally lushing it up all over town. We wish her a speedy recovery but, as Goldenfiddle reminds us, "The first step is admitting you have a problem."


tila tequila gives mtvnews her thoughts on this year's best kiss nominees

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Let's face it — sometimes, when two thespians share an onscreen kiss, it can seem forced, even artificial. Most actors will readily admit that it's perhaps the most uncomfortable aspect of their work. When you insert romance between two relative strangers, who may or may not be attracted to each other, the audience sees right through it. So, getting that kiss just right, with the right amount of passion and longing, is key.

At this weekend's MTV Movie Awards, there are five lip-locking movie moments in the running for Best Kiss: Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey's peck in "Enchanted"; Briana Evigan and Robert Hoffman's make-out session in "Step Up 2: The Streets"; Shia LaBeouf and Sarah Roemer's buss in "Disturbia"; Ellen Page and Michael Cera's sweet spit-swap in "Juno"; and Daniel Radcliffe and Katie Leung's smooch from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix."

But just who will take home the prize on Sunday? To handicap the foremost smooches, we consulted someone who knows a thing or two about making out: MTV's own Tila Tequila, MySpace phenom and the star of the bisexual dating program "A Shot at Love 2 With Tila Tequila."

"A great kiss, which I've had on my show, consists of a lot of exploding passion and just that tension that's been building up," Tequila said. "That makes for the perfect kiss. I do it all the time on my show. It's like you've been waiting so long to kiss this person, and then you finally let it out, and it's like, 'Oh my God.' "

Tequila knows about shoddy snogging too. "A terrible kiss happens when someone has very bad breath and their tongue actually feels like a rock, and it's stiff and it's cold, and it's like kissing a lizard — not that I know what that's like," she added. "But the tongue's not swapping smoothly with the saliva. If you're stuck in a terrible kiss, run for your life."

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher: Completely In Love

Doing their best to stay incognito while heading out to an awaiting limousine, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were spotted post-landing at LAX airport in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (May 29).

The 45-year-old Ghost actress appeared quite casual with her hair down and strange tattoo-like markings on both wrists. Ashton, meanwhile, looked a bit unkempt in a tan jacket with a Red Sox cap.

cookie visits luke menard in the hospital

Preparing for the American Idol finale means long hours and hard work. But days before David Cook was declared the season seven winner, he dropped everything to visit with fellow top 24 contestant Luke Menard in a Los Angeles hospital.

Menard, 29, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

“I love Luke and I just wanted to show up and make sure that he understood that I love him and know that if there’s anything I can do for him and his wife, sign me up, you know?” Cook tells PEOPLE. “Luke, Michael Johns, Jason Yeager and myself, we kind of buddy-ed up one day at Hollywood week,” Cook explains. “We called ourselves the four horsemen. Any time one of your own is going through something as horrible as that, it makes everything else seem a little bit insignificant.

“Cancer,” Cook says, “is a very big part of my existence.” Cook’s older brother Adam has been battling brain cancer for ten years. “I’m excited to be put in [the spotlight] where I can hopefully do something to help other people.” –Monica Rizzo

would you hit it?


Yesh, I would. Only because it's rumored that the dick is major. I would have to sit in a bath of nail polish remover afterwards to get the Simpson smegma off of me.

We would also have to "shave 'n fuck." That hairy patch on his belly is distracting. I don't mind landing strips, but that shit needs a little maintenance. I bet his peen bush is like the damn amazon jungle. You need a machete to get through that mess. I guess Jenny Aniston doesn't mind pubies between her teeth. Beggars can't be choosers!

Here's John in Hawaii this past weekend. Jenny wasn't with him. He needed to spend time with the "boys"

Baby Mama star Dax Shepard and gal pal Kristen Bell did all that was humanly possible to avoid being photographed in a dirty car while out to dinner in the Los Feliz area. According to spies at the restaurant, Shepard talked endlessly about how he should've gotten a car wash earlier in the afternoon or about how he should've parked his car in a covered garage before going away for a few weeks. Bell assured her boyfriend that it was okay; she calmly rationalized the situation by explaining that, first of all, it never rains in May in Southern California. Secondly, everybody else's car probably looks dirty, too. However, Bell's pep talk was quickly forgotten when she left the restaurant and realized that the car was way dirtier than she remembered. Adding insult to injury, the duo was unable to successfully petition the paparazzi not to take their picture, and observers remarked that they're likely end up in the "Celebrities, They're Just Like Us ... Only Dirtier!" section of this week's US Weekly.


edit: Forgot to add, that I'm posting this for the pure ridiculousness of it and the fact that I haven't stopped laughing. I love her but this is hilarious

Alanis & Tori end the feud

ALANIS MORISSETTE and TORI AMOS ended a silent feud on the road when the Canadian rocker took the CORNFLAKE GIRL to task over a comment she made in an interview.

Morissette admits she was a little confused when Amos said the album Jagged Little Pill “made her ears hurt,” and decided to bring it up when the two were paired together on tour.

The Ironic hitmaker tells Venice magazine, “I was, ‘All right, what do you have to say for yourself?’ She apologised profusely.”

Years later, Morissette agrees her hit debut was a little harsh for some.

She adds, “She’s (Amos) right… It was a record that didn’t rhyme, and to some ears sounded really abrasive.”
