Asked how her husband looked, Winehouse told People: “He’s gorgeous as f—. Haven’t you seen him before?”.
Dressed in a blue spotted shirtdress, cream platform peep-toe Christian Louboutin shoes and carrying a black quilted Chanel handbag, Winehouse arrived at court shortly after 2 p.m. She sat alone in the court’s empty front row, blowing kisses and mouthing “I love you” to her husband, who was seated behind glass across the courtroom.
Winehouse continued a mouthed conversation with her husband until the usher stopped her. At about 4 p.m., she motioned to her husband that she’d had enough and was leaving.
“I love you, you’re fit,” she said, using the British slang for gorgeous as she stood up and exited the courtroom.

15 Reasons Mr. Rogers Was the Best Neighbor EVER.
Back when I was in 7th grade I stood up in front of my English class and delivered a tongue-in-cheek, poorly researched presentation on why I thought Mister Rogers should be the next President. I ate up the first few minutes zipping up my cardigan, and putting on some sneakers, and then I proceeded to mock him roundly. It was a riotous success. Fourteen years later, I’m using this post to repent. The following are 15 things everyone should know about Fred Rogers:

Gwyneth Paltrow looks positively flawless on the July 2008 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, out June 17.
In the mag, the mother-of-two talks about staying in shape: “All the negative things have actually ended up being really positive because they’ve kick-started me into thinking how I want to look for the rest of my life.”
Continued Gwyn, “And you know, I don’t want to look like a mother who doesn’t care. For myself, for my work and for my relationship, I want to look good.”
And she surely looks good here!

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been so long since my last update... things have been crazy. I'm in SLC, UT right now shooting High School Musical 3 which is a lot of work. We're all having a lot of fun though. You know me... dancing up a storm and hurting my body in the process. We'll be here till the end of June. (a total of almost 4 months)
Enough about that... Earlier this year I was in a movie that changed my life... Milk. I shot for a month in San Fransisco with one of my favorite directors, Gus Van Sant, and a hugely talented cast that exposed me to a completely new realm of film making. It will also be a movie that is completely different that anything else I've done. The story is about a very important man, Harvey Milk. (google him)
This was posted b/c I know ONTD (me included) loves him, but I also realize that he's writing to a much younger (not so intelligent?) audience than ONTD... explains why he's stating the obvious ;-)
ETA: I'm pretty sure oceanUP got this from the LG message boards... and yes, it's populated with lots of little kids on there, so that would explain the reason why he seems to be talking down in his blog. Just to clear that up :)

Clint Eastwood In Person! Double Feature
Los Angeles Premiere! CLINT EASTWOOD: A LIFE IN FILM, 2007, 81 min. Dir. Michael Henry Wilson.
Using the post-production of Eastwood's World War II diptych as his springboard, Wilson engaged the notoriously reticent director in a surprisingly easygoing and intimate dialogue. Never before has Eastwood recounted his personal odyssey with such passion. In attempting to capture the essence of a great filmmaker, this simple, thoughtful portrait illuminates his human side as well as his untamed creativity.
THE BEGUILED, 1971, Universal, 105 min.
Don Siegel (DIRTY HARRY) directed this hypnotic American Gothic of a wounded Yankee soldier (Clint Eastwood) holed up in a rural finishing school of sexually frustrated Southern belles during the Civil War. Eastwood’s complex, double-edged performance is one of his greatest. Geraldine Page is the tragically repressed schoolmistress who finds herself falling for her "prisoner," and Elizabeth Hartman is the delicate flower who might just end up being Eastwood’s salvation. Critics were initially divided on the film, but its reputation has grown steadily, many now believing it to be one of Siegel and Eastwood’s best. With Jo Ann Harris, Mae Mercer. "Combining the conventions of both western and Grand Guignol chiller, and often directed as if it were an art movie, this is one of Siegel and Eastwood's strangest - and most beguiling - collaborations." – Time Out.
Discussion in between films with Clint Eastwood and film historian and filmmaker Michael Henry Wilson.
... Director Blake Edwards will attend screenings of his movies, "WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR, DADDY?" and "A SHOT IN THE DARK," at the Aero on June 4th
Torchwood's Season 3? We Do Know Jack
Tired of all the rumors surrounding Torchwood's future, TVGuide.com went directly to the rift, er, Cardiff, Wales, to learn if the truth was out there.
Well, 'Woodies (or Torchies, if you prefer), scripts for Season 3 are currently being developed and filming should start in the middle of August for airing on BBC1 in the spring of 2009. Best news of all, John Barrowman will return as the dashing bi-sexual adventurer. Though keeping more details close to the vest, executive producer Julie Gardner vows that fans "will be pleased with the casting." That better mean Eve Myles is returning!
Fans, however, may not be so happy with the mere five hours slated for next season. "We've decided to do a five-part mini-series, one big story that will run during one week," says Gardner, adding, "I wanted to make a really big noise about the show."
So far, the BBC has only green lit these five hours, but there could be more, we're told. When (or even whether) BBC America will run the mini-series has yet to be decided. — Ileane Rudolph

Liam Gallagher cusses Gordon Ramsay's cooking
Oasis singer says his wife cooks better than Ramsay
Liam Gallagher wasn't impressed with Gordon Ramsay's cooking on his show 'The F Word'.
The singer's wife, former All Saints girl Nicole Appleton, took on Ramsay in a cook-off - but Gallagher loyally stuck up for his spouse, saying the TV chef's food was awful.
He said: "Me missus is a better effing cook than you!"
Gallagher then later told Ramsay: "Your cooking is bobbins."
According to the Daily Star the word "bobbins" is slang for lousy.
Appleton took on Ramsay with a starter of pasta and clams, a main course of spiced pork chops and sweet potatoes and a desert of apple tart.
After tucking into his wife's meal Gallagher told Ramsay: "Me missus does a better sweet potato than you do."
The former hell-raising Oasis man also admitted he can't drink like used to, as his hangovers are much worse now he's older.
Gallagher said: "It takes me longer to recover from nights out."
Catch this episode of 'The F Word' in full on Channel 4 tonight, at 9pm (BST).

Cam Gigandet Joins The ‘Twilight Tuesday’ Festivities
As we wind down our coverage of the 2008 MTV Movie Awards, and all the “Twilight” fun that made the show so extra-special, we’re honoring this week’s Twilight Tuesday by bringing you an unedited interview between Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and yours truly.
We’re also excited to bring you the very first Cam Gigandet MTV interview, as we caught up with him on the red carpet and learned that the 25-year-old actor was eager to join the Twilight Tuesday festivities. For those who don’t know, Cam plays James - the “tracker” vampire who hunts down human beings and turns his attention to Stewart’s Bella Swan, leading to the confrontation we all saw in Sunday’s exclusive clip.
Moments after unveiling the scene on our gold carpet, and shortly before he’d go inside the Universal Amphitheatre to accept a “Best Fight” statuette for the flick “Never Back Down,” Gigandet gave us his take on the big day. You’re a mere mouse-click away from hearing his thoughts on everything from action scenes to crazy fans, Stephenie Meyer to Spunk Ransom.

Months ago, Lydia Sum's funeral drew hundreds. Today, only family members pay respects
FEW JOSS STICKS MARK HER GRAVE
By Maureen Koh
June 02, 2008
THE contrast could not be greater.
Three months ago in Canada, on 27 Feb, the funeral for famous Hong Kong comedienne Lydia Sum drew a large police presence, a horde of journalists - both local and foreign - and a stream of shiny cars ferrying celebrities and officials.
About 300 people reportedly turned up at the established Forest Lawn Cemetery in Burnaby, Vancouver, to mourn her passing.
Heaps of flowers, with messages mostly in Chinese, had filled the site.
Early last month, when The New Paper on Sunday visited the place, there was a calm silence at Lydia's grave - Grave 1 in the Garden of Tribute.
One dried flower, a few stray rose stems, and some burnt joss sticks were scattered at the spot where Lydia was laid to rest. She had died on 19 Feb from cancer at age 62.
And during her funeral service, the Mayor of Vancouver, Mr Sam Sullivan, declared today as Fei Fei Day. 1 Jun was also the date of Lydia's birthday.
It would have been easy to miss Lot 1913, if not for Mr Brian Boyle, a manager at the cemetery, who led us there.
Markings from the slabs of grass and soil have grown faint. And there was only a small metal plate that read Sum Lydia Tin Ha (1945 - 2008).
Tila Tequila, the bi-sexual star of MTV's dating show A Shot at Love 2 with Tila Tequila, is eager to talk about love--specifically, her crush on Christina Ricci.
"I love Christina Ricci," she reveals to Extra. "She’s really hot and I think she looks kind of odd like me…I fell in love with her when I saw Black Snake Moan. She was naked in that one. I kind of drooled over her naked scenes…"
Last season on her show, Tila chose to date a man, boyfriend Bobby Banhart. When that didn't work out, the MySpace phenomenon took a lot of heat for the show being fake--something she says is totally false.
"People thought my show was fake… It’s real. People’s hearts got broken including mine and I just want everyone to know that sometimes things don’t work out, but that doesn’t mean it’s scripted."
Whoever Tila ends up with in the future, it's clear the MTV star wants to add kids to the mix, preferably one in particular--Angelina Jolie's son, Pax!
Tila tells Extra she'd love to have children in the future, saying, "I was wondering if I could adopt one of her [Angelina Jolie's] babies. I love Pax. He’s Vietnamese like me. I was thinking of retiring and adopting a few kids of my own. Moving to somewhere really far away from Hollywood."
Angie better lock up her kids! Tila's coming to get 'em!
PARIS, France (AP) -- A Paris court on Tuesday convicted Brigitte Bardot of provoking discrimination and racial hatred for writing that Muslims are destroying France.
The court also handed down a $23,325 fine against the former screen siren and animal rights campaigner.
A leading French anti-racism group known as MRAP filed a lawsuit last year over a letter she sent to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. The remarks were published in her foundation's quarterly journal.
In the December 2006 letter to Sarkozy, now the president, Bardot said France is "tired of being led by the nose by this population that is destroying us, destroying our country by imposing its acts."
She was referring to the Muslim feast of Eid el-Kebir, celebrated by slaughtering sheep.
French anti-racism laws prevent inciting hatred and discrimination on racial or religious or racial grounds. Bardot had been convicted four times previously for inciting racial hatred.
Mods, this happened just a few hours ago. It has not been posted.
WuChess, a partnership between Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and ChessPark, a social network around online chess playing, launches today. It’s the “world’s first online chess and hip hop community” and will also include exclusive videos and mp3 of the “hottest cats in hip hop.”
See a tour of the service here. That’s as far as most of you’ll get on WuChess, because, incredibly, they’re charging $48/year to join. ChessPark, by contrast, at least has a free version (but no videos or mp3s, sadly). The company promises to donate “a portion of the profits” to the Hip Hop Chess Federation.
Awesome. Hip hop, chess and $48 per year - definite winner.
Here is a quote from the website:
Chesspark and the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA have partnered up to bring you WuChess.com.
Designed for chess enthusiasts addicted to hip-hop music, WuChess.com is the place where your favorite music, movies and celebs will be all while you get your game on. WuChess members will get exclusive offers such as MP3s you can't get anywhere else, playing a surprise celebrity guest, access to one of a kind video clips and many more surprises. This is hardcore chess with half the stuffiness.
WuChess understands that it is important that today's youth develop life strategy skills, so to help their efforts a portion of WuChess revenue will be donated to the Hip Hop Chess Federation's scholarship fund.
Welcome to the next level.

Within Universal's production notes for The Strangers it has been revealed - under producer Doug Davison's bio - writers Vlas and Charles Parlapanides are penning an American remake of Death Note for Vertigo Films. The brothers are currently overseeing the development of CW's upcoming television series Undercover, directed by John Stockwell (Turistas).
Death Note, Shusuke Kaneko's adaptation of the popular manga, has become a cult hit and spawned a sequel Death Note: The Last Name. The story concerns a student, Light Yagami, who discovers a notebook that gives him the ability to jot someone's name down within its pages and kill someone.
Vertigo, in addition to producing Strangers, is also at work on a remake of Anguish.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — A massive blaze that destroyed part of the back lot at Universal Studios was accidentally ignited by workers using a blowtorch on the roof of a movie set building facade, fire officials said.
Workers had been using the blowtorch early Sunday to heat asphalt shingles to apply to the roof, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Michael Freeman said Monday. They finished around 3 a.m. and followed policy of standing watch for one hour, then left for a break, he said.
A security guard spotted the fire and reported it at 4:43 a.m., Freeman said.
The fire erupted on a streetscape featuring New York brownstone facades at the 400-acre property. It then destroyed a King Kong attraction, the courthouse square from "Back to the Future" and a streetscape featured in "Spider-Man 2" and "Transformers."

Actor Harrison Ford will play a starring role at what is expected to be one of the largest fundraising events for an environmental cause in Orange County.
The July 18 Sea Change Summer Party in Laguna Beach aims to raise at least $500,000 to benefit Oceana, an international organization devoted to protecting the seas from global warming, pollution and over fishing.
“For everybody in this county who enjoys a view of the ocean, we’re seeing right under our nose the incredible loss of wealth and vitality,” said Julie Hill, co-organizer of the Sea Change Party and a board member of three publicly-traded companies. “The way we’re going, eventually, all the oceans are going to be dead.”
Ford, star most recently of “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” will be honored for his role as an advocate for environmental issues, Hill said. She said his box office clout is also expected to help sell more tickets to the minimum $500-a-person event, which will be held at the Cahill Estate in Laguna Beach, with a sweeping view of the Pacific.
Attendance is limited to 400. To comply with the party’s green theme, guests will ride to the hilltop estate on a shuttle bus and the menu will feature “ocean-friendly” seafood, such as albacore tuna, while avoiding endangered species such as caviar from wild sturgeon or polluting products, such as farmed salmon.
Hill, a resident of Newport Coast whose charity work previously focused on causes to help abused women and foster children, said she chose to support Oceana because the charity has a track record of success that should appeal to Orange County’s business-oriented donors.
“We wanted to find one that’s extremely credible,” she said.
Other honorees at the party are Sam Waterston, star of “Law and Order,” and John Picard, a Corona del Mar expert on green building who appears in a forthcoming TV series “Greensburg” produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, about rebuilding a tornado devastated Kansas town on the Planet Green network.
Actor Ted Danson, the former star of “Cheers,” and Valarie Whiting, a Laguna Beach volunteer for the Great Park Conservancy and Girls Inc. of Orange County, co-chair the Sea Change Summer Party. Corporate sponsors include Toyota, La Mer and PIMCO. There is still an opportunity for a corporate sponsor to share naming rights to the party by donating $100,000, Hill said.
If I had $1000, I'd go and bring a hot date!
Singer Lily Allen showed up to the Glamour Woman Of The Year awards in London today (June 3rd). With her pink hair and dress, we absolutely hate it. Sorry to sound gross Lily, but your dress looks like you had some period leakage all over that dress.

Part of Universal may have blazed to the ground yesterday but that didn’t stop the MTV Movie Awards or a West Hollywood after-party last night, which featured glittering party people from Central Casting, not to mention a performance by M.I.A., a.k.a. Maya Arulpragasam. The staff of the hoedown, sponsored by Target and Converse One Star, were especially vigilant about fire codes last night, leaving some 40 people waiting in an outside line minutes before the performance, but hey, we’re not about to get mad at that.
Dressed like a techno-colored jester, M.I.A. jumped around and sang her 30 minutes of clattering hits, punctuating between-song time with “London Town” air raid sirens, but the most interesting moment arrived when Arulpragasam hopped on top of one of the many photo booths at the party and told her price for the gig: “They’re giving me $100,000,” she said. Not bad, eh? “I’m going to use it to build schools in Liberia,” she said. “It costs $2,000 to build a school for 1,000.”
The show wrapped up with Arulpragasam inviting women onstage to dance to “Paper Planes,” including Jessica Szohr, Jessica Stroup and Rumer Willis, who, between them, might have $100,000 in change falling out of their pockets.
Soundboard has no word yet from the party confirming or denying Arulpragasam’s statement.

Mr. Godard, one of the founders of the French New Wave of the 1960s, canceled the trip to the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival, citing “circumstances beyond his control,” festival organizers said Monday. The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel urged Mr. Godard in an open letter last week to “take a courageous stand and cancel your trip to Israel.” The letter asked: “Did you ever go to an Afrikaner film festival in apartheid South Africa? Why Israel, then?” Reuters said a source in Mr. Godard’s office declined to comment but said he had canceled his visit for political reasons. Festival organizers said they were disappointed but respected Mr. Godard’s decision. Pro-Palestinian groups frequently call on prominent cultural and academic figures to boycott Israel because of its occupation of the West Bank and its blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

“Mark just moved here from San Francisco,” Knight gushed to Us Weekly. “To clarify, we are not having a commitment ceremony and I am not performing a commitment ceremony… Once you are given something that you were never allowed before, you realize how much of a second class person you were before. That is horrible and fantastic at the same time. It makes me want to sob and scream with joy all at the same time.”
“The floodgates have been opened they will never be closed,” Cornelsen, 19, added.
“[One of my Grey’s costars] in particular, I won’t mention names told me, ‘You know I like him more than I like you, right?’” T.R. joked. “They said it about three or four times so it’s kind of not as funny as it was the first time anymore. [But] they love him. They’re like, ‘When is he coming?’ They want him there.”
“They’re all wonderful and so sweet,” Cornelsen said. “It’s amazing.”
TATUM is saved! Tatum O'Neal - recovering wife, addict and actress - sounded relieved. And, dare I say it, happy.
"I'm still sober!" she announced to me, two hours after being sprung from a night in jail, rumpled but far more rested and relaxed than I might look after a warm shower and heavy doses of caffeine.
"Just when I was about to change that and wreck my life, the cops came and saved me!" Tatum crowed.
"I was saved by the bell, by the guys in the Seventh Precinct."
Tatum was thrown in the can after being picked up on the Lower East Side and charged with buying crack and cocaine from a vagrant.
She called me to explain herself. Also, because she liked my columns slamming another discarded wife, Dina Matos McGreevey.

Former supermodel Jerry Hall's youngest son is so protective of her, he has banned her from having a boyfriend.
The Texan beauty, 51, admits 10-year-old Gabriel - from her marriage to rocker Sir Mick Jagger - is sickened by the thought of his mother bringing someone home, and has even threatened suicide to persuade her to continue to live her life as a single mother.
She says, "Gabriel gets very angry with me if I work too much. And he absolutely hates the idea of me having a boyfriend. He says, 'If you get a boyfriend, I will kill myself.'
"I say to him, 'But darling, you will grow up and get married one day and it would be nice for Mum to have some company.' And he says, 'No Mum, I am never going to leave you.' But that's what boys are like, isn't it?"
And Hall insists she's in no rush to marry again, because she's happy on her own: "I think having a partner is a bonus, but I don't think it's a necessity. I've always had my own money and worked and looked after myself.
"I do see people and have dates and I think love is a wonderful thing, but that hasn't really happened to me. I haven't fallen in love. Maybe it will happen one day. But I think it would probably be idiotic to marry again. I seems to me that you do that when you want to have children. And I've had mine."
Hall has three other children with ex-husband Jagger: Elizabeth, 24; James, 22, and Georgia, 16. The couple split in 1999.
I know they aren't exactly ONTD frequents, but I just thought this was too odd, especially the way she's so nonchalant about it.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman adds to Bo Diddley tributes
'He was an American original' says Billy Corgan
Billy Corgan has added to the heartfelt tributes to Bo Diddley, the legendary guitarist who died yesterday (June 2) after suffering heart failure.
The Smashing Pumpkins frontman said that Diddley was "one of the true pioneers of rock and roll, and an underrated songwriter."
Corgan added: "His influence can still be heard everywhere. I just bought an old Bo Diddley 45 at a record shop today before I heard of his passing. He was an American original.”
Corgan joined the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Slash, The Grateful Dead and Albert Hammond Jr in paying tribute to Diddley.
Check out Bo Diddley's greatest video moments on the NME Office Blog now.

Bo Diddley was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame in 1987.
There's been no official announcement from Activision, and the exact timing of its release remains unknown. However, speculation suggests that it will come out sometime after the release of "Guitar Hero: On Tour," otherwise known as Guitar Hero 4 -- which like rival "Rock Band" will feature a full compliment of instruments beyond the guitar. The title is expected this holiday season.
"Guitar Hero: Aerosmith" is slated for release June 29. Unlike other "Guitar Hero" games, which feature scores of tracks from multiple artists, the Aerosmith expansion will include primarily that band's catalog, along with a smattering of songs from bands that Aerosmith wanted included.
The game "storyline" features Aerosmith's rise from smaller venues in Boston to large stadiums, with motion-capture animated versions of all band members.
Nicole partnered up with Signorelli to create T-shirts benefiting The Children's Health Fund. She proudly announced raising $400,000! She was wearing the black tank with Angel motif — stay tuned to enter to win the tank Nicole was wearing that benefits the Fund. But first, a few Fab words . . .
What brings you here?
We’re partnering up with Signorelli to raise money for the Children’s Health Fund. Just in Los Angeles, there are 500,000 children without health care and by selling the T-shirts a large amount of the proceeds are helping to fund building for mobile units. So the mobile units can go around and provide immediate health care.
Did you have any say in the design of the shirts?
I didn’t but they sent me options and I went with the black tank, I wear a lot of black.
Can we talk about your jewelry line that’s in the works?
Yes. It’s called House of Harlow and it’s actually the beginning of a brand that I’m developing of children’s apparel and also a clothing line, shoes, bags, sunglasses, everything. I’m really excited. The jewelry is first and it will be out in late August.
Can you tell us about the children’s collection?
I’m at the very beginning stages but I’m designing adult clothes for babies. The girl’s clothes are designed after my personal clothing and the guy’s clothes are going to be designed after Joel’s.
So it’s going to be like a mini-me sort of thing.
Yes, exactly. So little hippie dresses for girls and sleeveless tops and suits for boys. I think there’s nothing cuter than a little boy dressed in a suit.
And what else are you wearing?
I think the jacket is Stella McCartney — is it? — the pants are Balenciaga, and Loubs. (And she was carrying her black Balenciaga motorcycle bag – with iPod headphones falling out).
How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t know how to answer that! I really don’t know, I feel like I wear the same thing every day. I just accessorize differently and wear whatever I’m comfortable in. Like, when I’m with the baby I wear flats and when I’m not I wear heels. It just depends on what mood I’m in.
How has your style evolved?
I still like to dress up. I think every girl, whether you’re 13 or in your twenties, should always try new things. I mean, I’ve had my hair pink and brown and blonde and I think it’s all about trying new things; I’m really open to new looks. I love fashion so much that I definitely want to take it to the next level and I’m really excited about it all.
Production was delayed for several months while the voice actors and 20th Century Fox TV discussed an agreement.
Variety said the salaries of the stars - including Dan Castellaneta (Homer) and Nancy Cartwright (Bart) - would rise to $400,000 (£200,000) an episode.
The Simpsons is the US' longest-running prime-time entertainment series.
Because of the delay, 20 episodes of the new series will be made instead of the usual 22, Variety said.
It is not the first time production on The Simpsons has been delayed for salary negotiations.
In 2004, production was halted for a month after a pay dispute over contracts led the stars to stop work.
Each cast member was seeking about $360,000 per episode, Variety reported at the time. The actors were previously earning $125,000 (£70,000) a show.
In the past, the cast have argued that their wages are relatively low given the huge popularity and success of The Simpsons.
As part of the latest deal, Castellaneta has been named consulting producer on the series. He will serve as a writer in addition to his role as a voice performer.

She then caught up with her hubby Gavin Rossdale (who just released his debut solo album WANDERlust today!) and now 2-year-old son Kingston and went to a friends' house. The family of three then strolled around the OC, having a good ole time...
And they always look so damn gorgeous. All of them.
Picture perfect every snapshot!

So, has anyone else bought Gavin's new CD today? I like it quite a bit, honestly.
Also, does anyone else think Gwen always looks picture perfect? Must suck to always be photogenic. =P
Daniel Radcliffe and other Harry Potter stars will attend the funeral of murdered teenage actor Rob Knox.
Rob, 18, had completed filming as Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince when he was stabbed to death last month.
His uncle John Knox, 57, said yesterday: "We've heard that the Harry Potter stars have asked to come to his funeral.
"It will be a fitting tribute. Rob told us how much he admired them all.
"It was his dream to be an actor and I've no doubt, given the time and the training, he'd have made it to the top. He was a great lad and we're all missing him so much. Our family has been torn apart. We still can't get our heads round the fact that we'll never see him again."
John said Rob's brother Jamie, 17, has pledged to become a full-time actor to honour his adored brother.
Jamie, who attends Rob's old drama academy, has already appeared in the ITV drama Love Lies Bleeding in 2006 and in one episode of A Touch of Frost in 2003.
John, ofWest Malling, Kent, said: "He's told his mum and dad that he's going to dedicate his life to becoming an actor and will use Rob as his inspiration.
"Rob was his hero. Now Jamie is trying to come to terms with his death. It will take time, as it will for all of us.
"Those boys were the best of friends, they did everything together. With Rob gone, there's a massive hole in Jamie's life."
Before landing his Harry Potter role, Rob appeared in The Bill and Trust Me, I'm A Teenager for Channel Four.
He also appeared in the 2007 BBC family sitcom After You've Gone and had signed to appear in the seventh Harry Potter film, after the Half-Blood Prince.
Rob was stabbed to death outside a bar in Sidcup on May 16. Four friends were also injured. One is still in intensive care.
Later, the teenager's father Colin, 55, begged youngsters not to carry blades. He said: "With knives, there are no winners."
He and wife Sally, 50, have not yet been able to set a date for their son's funeral as police still need to keep the body.
Unemployed Karl Bishop, 21, of Sidcup, has been remanded in custody until September 2 accused of murder and wounding.

Doctor Who star David Tennant is rumoured to be in a romantic relationship with his co-star Georgia Moffett, who is his on-screen daughter.
The pair were photographed leaving his north London home on Saturday morning after spending the night there.
They arrived at her flat on Saturday night and Tennant, 37, did not leave until 11am the next morning.
Miss Moffett, 23, who has a six-year-old son, is the real daughter of former Doctor Who Peter Davison.
A friend of Miss Moffett’s said: “They have been going out together for a while now but meet up at each other’s houses so as to avoid being spotted by Who fans.
“David can’t really go anywhere without attracting attention and it’s early days so they don’t want any distractions or fuss made about what’s going on.
“It started with some friendly dinner dates but has progressed quickly and they are now in a serious relationship.
“Even with his busy schedule, David is making a lot of time to spend with her, so he must really like her.”
The couple met while filming in Wales. Miss Moffett has described the encounter.
She said: “It was winter when we filmed and I was wearing very little so you can imagine how cold that was.
“David kindly lent me his jacket between takes.”

Sir Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono put their previously fractious relationship to one side when they sat together at Stella McCartney's fashion show at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts last night.
Yoko was in Liverpool for an exhibition of her late husband John Lennon's art work at the City Exchange and had also gone along to see Macca perform the night before at Liverpool FC's Anfield stadium - all part of the the programme of events for the city's year as European Capital Of Culture.
"It's a very special weekend," Ono said. She also described the transformation of the city for this year's celebrations as a "phoenix rising".
She said: "I think it is amazing. This is really going to change the city in the sense that children 10 years down the line will think this is normal and they will be a totally different tribe. It's so exciting."
McCartney's gig was before 36,000 fans and saw him perform a host of Beatles hits including Let It Be and Hey Jude as well as solo material. The bash also saw performances from Kaiser Chiefs, local lads The Zutons and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.
The former Beatle, 65, has had many ups and downs with Yoko since she started her relationship with his bandmate Lennon in the 1960s.
As recently as 2005, Yoko, 75, suggested that Lennon was a far better singer than his fellow Beatle, and went on to pour scorn on McCartney's lyrics at that year's Q Awards.
She has previously threatened to sue Macca too when he changed the famous Lennon/ McCartney writing credit around in December 2004, and banned him from using Yesterday on a solo album of love songs because it was a Beatles number, forcing him to scrap the project.
And here is another interesting article about their relationship. Click here to read what Julian Lennon had to say about his evil stepmother in a 1999 interview. >:O

Former President Bill Clinton and Gina Gershon are slamming a new Vanity Fair article that implies they had an affair.
In a story titled "The Comeback Id," National editor Todd Purdum — who is wed to former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers — writes that Clinton's personality has changed since his 2004 heart bypass surgery and that there were reports of President Clinton "seeing a lot of women on the road."
He writes that, according to "recent high-end Hollywood dinner-party gossip ... Clinton has been seen visiting with the actress Gina Gershon in California."
Gershon's rep tells Usmagazine.com: "Todd Purdum's insinuation is a lie, and it is irresponsible journalism. We are demanding a retraction."
(Vanity Fair has not responded to Us' requests for comment.)
President Clinton also denied the claims, calling Purdum "sleazy" and a "scumbag." ("He's one of the guys that propagated all those lies about Whitewater for Kenneth Starr" Clinton said. "He's just a dishonest guy — can't help it.")
He also told the Huffington Post that the article is an attempt to discredit his wife Hillary Clinton.
(A rep for Hillary's campaign has since apologized, saying that President Clinton used "inappropriate" language.)
Purdum defended himself on CNN, saying he was "very careful to say there is no clear-cut evidence that President Clinton has done anything improper."
"I reject the notion that I'm making an insinuation," he added. "But I'm very comfortable quoting the people I quote because I know who they are, and I know that they are very senior people who have known President Clinton for a very long time and work for him at very high levels."Source

The driver of a water truck was backing up and rolled over the man’s right leg shortly after 7 p.m. Monday, Sharon Firefighter John Guiod said. The man was flown by helicopter to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston with serious leg injuries.
Information about the man’s name and condition was not available today.
Director Martin Scorsese has been filming his latest film in Massachusetts for the past few months, including stops in Hull at Pemberton Point and Peddock’s Island.
On Monday, cast and crew were filming at the stone lodge at Borderland State Park on the Sharon/Easton border.
The movie is based on Dorchester native Dennis Lehane’s book “Shutter Island,” and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Kingsley and Michele Williams.
The legendary performance that Radiohead gave at 2006's Bonnaroo Music Festival has since been regarded as one of the best shows at a festival, ever. Even the band will agree that the 28 song set was epic. We've been hearing rumors ever since that a DVD of the performance would be released, and while that hasn't happened yet, fans will be able to get a taste of that evening thanks to Fuse TV.
As a precursor to Fuse's live coverage of Bonnaroo 2008, the channel will be airing footage from Radiohead006 performance as part of its "Best of Bonnaroo: Volume I" special starting the weekend of Friday, June 13th.
Specific airtimes have yet to be announced, but more information will be posted soon at Fuse's Bonnaroo page:

Apparently, this whole RBD-mania madness hasn’t died down as much as many would like it to.
There is an RBD movie in the works. Yes, the six RBD-ers are headed to the big screen.
They’ve already been successful in television, music, and even home goods.
While we’re sure critics will hate the movie, no doubt, it’ll make a lot of money.

Rapper Busta Rhymes has been tapped to perform on the main stage of this summer's Projekt Revolution tour, which also features performances by Linkin Park, Chris Cornell, the Bravery and Ashes Divide, among others.
Rhymes recently drafted Linkin Park to guest on his new single, "We Made It," which was produced by Cool & Dre and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda. The track will appear on Rhymes' eight studio album, "Blessed," due later this summer via Flipmode/Aftermath/Interscope.
"It made perfect sense for us to be on the tour together, so we could perform ['We Made It'] and bring it to life for people every night," Rhymes tells Billboard.com.
As previously reported, the fifth installation of the Linkin Park-reared trek is scheduled to visit 24 U.S. cities, beginning July 16 at the Tweeter Center outside Boston and wrap Aug. 24 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston. Atreyu, 10 Years, Hawthorne Heights, Armor For Sleep and the Street Drum Corps will appear on the smaller Revolution Stage.
Rhymes plans to perform new material from "Blessed" during Projekt Revolution, but doesn't expect his set to get too flashy. "I'm really one that loves the traditional sense of hip-hop," the rapper explains. "I like microphones and turntables."
"Blessed" is the follow-up to 2006's "The Big Bang," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 609,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"This album is Busta Rhymes in a mastered way," he says, noting that "The Big Bang" was a collaborative effort with Dr. Dre. "I think [Dre] felt like it was time to allow me to spread my wings and take the best of what I learned from my experience in doing 'The Big Bang' to this new album."

Check out Rosie O'Donnell's very revealing interview with Howard Stern before it's taken down from YouTube. At one point during the nearly hour-long chat, Rosie and Howard began mocking Jay Leno with impersonations of his high-pitched voice. Rosie recalled that when Leno first took over for Johnny Carson, there was talk of her guest-hosting "The Tonight Show" on Friday nights, but "he vetoed it. He said no." (scroll to 6:28 mark) "I think the guy can only work," Rosie said of Leno. "He doesn't live his life so much. his life is about his work...he's in performance mode a lot, and when he's not in performance mode he's very shy and sort of doesn't quite know how to talk in a social situation."

PROVIDENCE, R.I.: ” "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch is appealing his tax evasion conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Hatch was convicted two years ago of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the debut season of the hit CBS reality series. He is now serving a 51-month prison sentence.
Hatch's lawyer, Michael Minns, has said his client confronted the producers about cheating during taping of the show, and a producer promised that his taxes would be paid if he kept quiet and went on to win the competition.
Minns argued in a brief to the Supreme Court last week that the judge improperly prevented Hatch from testifying about that conversation.
CBS has said Hatch's claims have no merit.

Jenna Jameson's best friend Aubrey O'Day copped a feel of singer Adina Howard's breast as an envious D Woods groped herself at the wild party thrown at The Plumm NYC last Thursday night for the release of the new Danity Kane CD. "It was total chaos," noted New York paparazzo Gordon King, "the girls started trying to one-up each other." O'Day was partying without alleged boy pal Jesse McCartney, and was being all girlie-girlie with top fashion model Jaslene Gonzalez, Howard, and Woods.
The evening's festivities were captured by the SUN's broadband phenomenom The Heyman Hustle, which documented O'Day's evenings in a series of wild photos posted along with the interview host/producer Paul Heyman (of ECW and WWE Wrestling fame) conducted with O'Day.
The interview is out of control, too, as O'Day flirts with Heyman, reveals an insecurity about her natural 34 C breasts, shows off tattoos on the back of her neck, and breaks her silence on what plastic surgery she wants to have. She also talks about her love for Jenna Jameson, and gets silent when Heyman corners her when she lets it out that she got her boat rocked the night before. "Male or female?" Heyman presses. O'Day says, "male," but Heyman, who is the son of an attorney, kept pressing for an answer as to who was the lucky lover.

A lot of students have a graduation party thrown for them by their parents after receiving their high-school diploma. Rarely does someone get a party, a visit from a country act and free food from a major record label.
So Gretchen Wilson’s graduation party Monday at Sony BMG headquarters in Nashville was an unusual event. The staff signed a congratulatory cap-and-gown portrait, Montgomery Gentry made an appearance and she received a locket from Tiffany & Co. with the inscription "Class of ’08."
"I think," Gretchen said, "I was supposed to be the class of ’92."
Gretchen had only finished eighth grade when she left home and quit school on the same day at age 15. Some 93 million Americans over the age of 25 never finished high school, according to Bernadine Nelson, Director of Adult Education for Tennessee’s Wilson County. And that number includes 33 percent of Tennesseans.
Gretchen shoehorned studies for her General Equivalency Degree in between parenting, touring and recording and passed her G.E.D. test in April. The test is difficult enough that 40 percent of current grads would not pass it, and Gretchen reached proficiency level despite the multitude of people and opportunities tugging at her sleeve.
"She did an amazing thing," Bernadine noted.
Looking back, Gretchen realizes she defied the odds. She had no back-up plan when she decided to pursue country stardom.
"The chances of that happening was one in a zillion," she observed.
Had it not worked, Gretchen would have likely floundered with few options. Particularly impressive in Gretchen’s achievement, Bernadine noted, is the fact that Gretchen could easily have passed up that diploma, given her financial success. But Gretchen wanted to set an example for her daughter and has discovered she’s inspired many of her fans to take more control over their own destinies.
"Even if you’re already set in life," Gretchen said, "it’s such a valuable thing for yourself, for your inside."
Montgomery Gentry brought along representatives from the University of Phoenix, who donated a free scholarship for Gretchen to award to someone through her charity program, the Gretchen Wilson Foundation. The scholarship is worth an estimated $50,000.
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Mel Ferrer, the tall, darkly handsome
star of such classic films as "Lili," "War and Peace" and "The Sun Also
Rises," as well as producer and director of movies starring his
then-wife, Audrey Hepburn, died Monday at age 90.
In this September 29, 1954, photo, Mel Ferrer and Audrey Hepburn arrive
in Rome, Italy, after they were married.
Ferrer died at a Santa Barbara, California, convalescent home, his son
Mark Ferrer said Tuesday. He had been in failing health for the past
six months and had recently moved to the home from his nearby ranch in
Carpinteria, his son said.
Ferrer's most impressive film role came in 1953 in "Lili." He played a
disabled carnival puppeteer with whom a French orphan (played by Leslie
Caron) falls in love.
He also won critical acclaim as Luis Bello in Robert Rossen's 1951
depiction of the public and private life of a bullfighter in "The Brave
Bulls," based on a Tom Lea book, and starred opposite Hepburn in 1956's
"War and Peace."
In later years, he turned more to directing and producing for movies

Josh Waring, the wayward and oft-troubled son of "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Laurie Waring, was busted late Sunday night for possession of heroin and ecstasy and intent to sell.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Waring was hanging out in front of a Comfort Inn in Laguna Beach when he was approached by police cruiser and took off running.
When cops caught up with him, they say he was high as a kite. Cops executed a search warrant at the hotel, and allegedly found a large amount of drugs in his room.
He's currently cooling his heels in the Orange County jail, charged with two felony counts of possession and intent to sell both heroin and ecstasy, a misdemeanor count of unauthorized possession of a hypodermic needle and being under the influence of heroin -- also a misdemeanor.
I remember Laurie used to talk about his ~struggles~ on the show and at one point he was sent off to some sort of rehab/boot camp, but they never really indicated exactly what the problem was. Well, now we know...

Believe it or not, after having two babies (daughter Apple and son Moses) Gwyneth Paltrow just may be ready to go for the hat trick and add a third to her brood.
The “Shakespeare in Love” actress, who was spotted on her way to meet Madonna at the Kabbalah Center in London earlier today, recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she has babies on the brain.
“I may force myself to do it one more time because the result is so worth it. And also my [late] dad said to me that his only regret in life was that he had only two children and he didn’t have more.”
And given her past experience with the pitfalls of pregnancy, it’s a bit surprising that she’s considering giving it a third go-around. “My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time.”
As for keeping the spark alive in her marriage with Chris Martin, Paltrow says it takes a special effort. “I think you have to make an effort to compartmentalize a little bit. When your children are asleep, you have to open another world ... children and being a parent can really drain that side of you. I would like to say ‘Go away for the weekend.’ But, of course, I’ve done that like one time on my birthday. But it’s important to carve out some time; otherwise, you don’t have an inner life. You just give all day, and then you pass out at night.”

In case you don't think Fall Out Boy love what they do, frontman Patrick Stump has revealed that the bandmembers were even talking about their next album at Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson's recent wedding.
"The band is really not talking about a record yet, but we're all itching to do one," Stump told Billboard.com, before qualifying: "Actually at the wedding we were like, 'We should do another record.' But I never want to mislead people.
"There's been rumors of us doing our next record for a long time, but it kind of comes from a misunderstanding about how we work because we're always writing," he added. "We've had material since Infinity on High dropped [in February 2007]. So there is plenty just floating around, but it's basically like whenever you're ready to go in and do it again, that's when it happens."
Stump also reassured fans about the band's status, saying "there is nothing hiatus or indefinite about what's going on [with the band] right now."
The most concrete information Stump could give about the new material was, by his own admission, somewhat vague. But he was unequivocal on one point: The new album will certainly explore new musical territory. He says what the band has been working on will be different from their last three albums, with "a lot of freedom on it."
He added that when they do enter the studio, they'll have "much more material written than when they began recording any of their last albums." However, he isn't sure whether that will be a help or a hindrance.
If anything is likely to be a hindrance, it's the "life stuff" that the individual bandmembers have been focusing on of late. Stump, for example, has been spending his free time producing Tyga, The Cab and Gym Class Heroes. He's also been exploring the world of filmmaking, working on a short film that is a "satire of the arts" and draws on his own experience as a musician.
Stump isn't the only Fall Out Boy with other irons in the fire, of course: Wentz and Simpson recently confirmed that they're expecting their first child.

what are Andy and Joe going to be doing during this down time?
Ex-American Idol finalist Jessica Sierra wants to do another round of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
One problem: A Hillsborough judge ordered her not to give any interviews or appear before any cameras during her yearlong stint at a California rehab center.
Sierra's attorney, John Fitzgibbons, will go to court Thursday to ask for some leeway from the judge who initially sentenced the reality TV star to probation on battery and cocaine possession charges, court papers show .
In an interview, Fitzgibbons said VH1 is planning Celebrity Rehab, part deux.
Before the judge told her to stay 100 yards away from cameras, Sierra, 22, appeared with eight other low-level celebrities on the initial series, headed by physician and self-described "addictionologist" Dr. Drew Pinsky.
The next series, according to court papers, would include an intensive three-week program with Dr. Charles Sophy, a psychiatrist who appeared last week on the Today show to discuss the rising rate of alcohol abuse in women.
Pinsky will be at Thursday's hearing to update a judge on Sierra's progress, Fitzgibbons said. Sierra will not attend.
Of the new show, Fitzgibbons said, "I think she's getting a huge amount of counseling for free."
It can't hurt her career to stay in the limelight, he added.

It is the year of the imprisoned women drama series.
Director Robert Rodriguez is shopping around Women in Chains! a violent drama set at a woman’s prison starring his fiancee, Rose McGowan.
The spec script, penned by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, has been sent to a number of networks, including NBC and FX.
McGowan is set play one of five chained women at the center of the show, which Rodriguez is expected to direct. The two first worked together on last year’s Planet Terror, Rodriguez’s homage to 1970s exploitation flicks.
The new show also is rumored to be fashioned with a 1970s exploitation sensibility, with such staples like mud wrestling. Details about the plot were first leaked to AintItCool.com earlier this week.
Women behind bars has become a running theme of late. Chains! comes on the heels of HBO’s deal to do an American version of the British female prison drama Bad Girls with Alan Ball, Nancy Oliver and Raelle Tucker.

He also claims he has been physically attacked, although he won’t go in to detail.
He says, "Yes, I was injured by an attacker. This is still being investigated."
Ghalib also spoke about the sex tape he has allegedly been shopping, telling Heat Magazine, "I have had many calls about it from all over the world...In light of the constant calls about the sex tape and threats, I’m taking a break from the industry and keeping a low profile."

Poor Larry King. He reminds me of the poor fellow near the beginning of Monty Python and the Holy Grail who keeps insisting that he's not dead yet, that he feels just fine, really. Both King and CNN have said that he's not going anywhere, and yet rumors persist of his imminent replacement. Names floated have included Ryan Seacrest, Katie Couric, and now, Jay Leno.
I don't even know if any of these people want the job — Seacrest's sorta busy, yes? Couric will have to stick it out at CBS a while longer in order for both the network and herself to save face when she finally does leave. Leno, though, is going to have plenty of time on his hands starting next year, and I'm sure he's happy to irk NBC by letting other networks court him. Whether or not any of these folks end up replacing King, I'm certainly ready to see him put into suspendered animation. Not because he's old, but because he's always been unable (or unwilling) to acknowledge context. Everything is equally important and newsworthy to him, whether it's the utterances of a world leader, Anna Nicole Smith's mailman, or caller Bob from West Tumbleweed.
If CNN does hire Leno or Seacrest (and maybe even if it hires Couric), there's only going to be more of the same. So maybe he should stick around for a while, long enough to curdle and turn cranky like Andy Rooney. At least then, maybe he'd venture an opinion once in a while that would ruffle some feathers, or recognize that some matters are weightier than others.
Your turn: Who would you pick to fill Larry King's slot? Or would you have him stick around as long as he likes?
Who do you think should replace Larry King?
He's a friend. So the story with him is for years he once claimed to be straight, then maaaaaaybe he was bi, and then finally he came out as a big fat gay 'mo who loved to take it up the butt butt butt.

YO SPENCER! I am a military wife with a problem. While my husband has been deployed overseas for 7 months, I have gotten very close to another wife whose husband is also overseas. I have never been interested in women before but we both are getting very comfortable with the idea of being together. Now we are unsure whether to resist the impulse in order to preserve our marriages or continue with our possible relationship and keep it from our husbands. Please help me with this unexpected turn in my life. Do I ignore my feelings or stick to being the faithful housewife waiting for my husband to return?
Never ignore your true feelings. Just because you don't tell him that you're really in LOVE with another woman does not then make you a faithful housewife. By not telling him how you feel you are being unfaithful. You should tell him that you want to see him AND the woman. Maybe see if he's cool with bringing her into the mix occasionally.
hmm. i kind of agree with spenc on this one! except the whole "you and the woman" thing .
The new Hannah Montana movie suddenly became an action flick when a freak ferris wheel accident on the set left several extras in bad shape.
According to witnesses on the set, all hell broke loose when high winds blew a giant piece of lighting equipment into a ferris wheel full of people on the Tennessee movie set. Miley Cyrus -- the star of the film, for all you out of touch people -- had just wrapped a scene on the stage next to the ferris wheel when the accident occurred.
We're told the collision caused a few cables on the ferris wheel to go haywire, striking several of the people on the ride. Medics on the scene quickly took the injured people to a local hospital -- where they received treatment for minor injuries.
It's a shame that she had just finished wrapping her scene when this happened!

Cinematographer: John Seale

Cast: Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox, Richard Dreyfuss, David Paymer, Samantha Mathis, John Mahoney
It seems like the setup to a joke: What if the president of the United States were single and trying to date? By taking the idea seriously, but with a healthy dollop of humor and charm, The American President brings a sense of humanity and warmth to this most mysterious and unknowable of jobs. A knowing script by Aaron Sorkin and winning performances by Michael Douglas and Annette Bening help give the film an undercurrent of heart and smarts. Join director Rob Reiner for a post-screening, on-stage, election-year conversation about the movie and its portrait of modern politics.
Before the screening, director Rob Reiner will take the stage for an in-depth conversation about his career. After the film, he will return, along with select cast and crew, for apost-screening, on-stage, election-year conversation about the movie and its portrait of modern politics.

Booze-swilling bots, intergalactic idiocy and a cycloptic ship captain can only mean one thing: the second Futurama feature has arrived on DVD.
Or rather, the trailer has landed -- the DVD won't hit your player until June 24.
The next serving in a series of direct-to-DVD spinoff films revolving around the canceled Fox show, The Beast With a Billion Backs follows the motley space crew on a new adventure battling sex-crazed aliens.
The first Futurama film, Bender's Big Score, didn't quite hit the mark with me -- despite sweet voice cameos by rapper Coolio and comedienne Sarah Silverman.
The good news is Billion Backs looks to be funnier -- or at least raunchier -- and the disc comes jam-packed with bonus goodies, like a behind-the-scenes featurette with David Cross, bloopers and tons of interviews with cast members and show creator Matt Groening.

POP METAL KINGPINS WARRANT REUNITE FOR REPEAT PERFORMANCE, WITH THE DOWN BOYS ORIGINAL LINE-UP
…"CHERRY PIE" ANYONE?
Hollywood, CA – Multi-platinum selling rock band WARRANT, best known for classic MTV staples' "Cherry Pie," "Heaven," and rock anthem "The Down Boys" will co-headline the 2008 Rocklahoma Festival – marking the reunion of its original line-up including Jani Lane (vocals); Joey Allen (lead guitar); Jerry Dixon (bass); Erik Turner (Guitar) and Steven Sweet (drums) -- for the first time in 14 years. Warrant will co-headline Rocklahoma with Cinderella, it was announced today by XM's Boneyard/VH1 Classic host, Eddie Trunk, at a press conference taking place at the world famous Whisky A-Go Go. Rocklahoma is a popular four-day music festival taking place July 10-13 in Pryor, OK, which attracts an impressive worldwide audience and big ticket sales. More than 80 bands will be performing on three giant stages with an expected attendance of more than 60,000 rock fans from all 50 states, every Province in Canada and every country in Europe. This phenomenon was covered in Rolling Stone's year-end issue with an in-depth seven page spread.
Comments Warrant: "We are stoked to be back together after 14 years! The best part will be playing live again for all the fans that never got to experience the original Warrant party band from Hollywood, CA! We also can't wait to play for all the fans who have waited so long for this reunion. Cheers - and here we go again!

Laugh out loud. I love Warrant though even have their greatest hits! But Jani baby what happened to you? *Sigh* I'm blaming it on the cherry pie. Remember when Muchmusic banned this video as it was 'too much for much'?
Stephen Colbert, the host of his own Comedy Central show, Emmy winner, faux presidential candidate and best-selling author, added to that esteemed collection an award from Princeton University: "The Great Princeton Class of 2008 Understandable Vanity Award."
The award was mounted on a mirror.
"I have to say, I've never seen anything more beautiful," Colbert on Monday told the 2,611 Princeton graduates-to-be assembled at Class Day, which is held each year the day before commencement. Senior Class President Tom Haine pointed out that the ceremony was held in front of ivy-covered Nassau Hall in an area where Gen. George Washington defeated the British in the Battle of Princeton.
"Mr. Colbert is, as George Washington was, a great patriot," Haine said. "He stands firm against the liberal tyrannies of our time. In other words, he fits right in."
During his speech, Colbert — in character as a right-wing, blowhard political commentator — tweaked the customary message of graduation speeches by imploring students to maintain the status quo.
"You can change the world," he said. "Please don't do that, OK? Some of us like the way things are going now."
And instead of telling graduates to conquer their fears, he admitted his. "I'm scared of you," he said. "I can tell you are go-getters. At my college, for instance, no one got out of bed before 11 o'clock."
He also made fun of the black and orange class jackets — known as "beer jackets" — that the graduates wore, and other aspects of Princeton culture.
"When you leave here," the comedian said, "no one will ever, ever want to hear you sing a capella. And those jackets you're wearing, do not wear them to your job interview."
Then, he was presented with one.
"In that case," he said, "I take it back. This is a beautiful jacket. Change the world."
Hilary Duff’s NYC Shoe Shopping Excursion
Wearing a loose-fitting white top with a pair of jean shorts, Hilary Duff headed out for a shopping excursion in NYC on Monday (June 2).
Accompanied by a gal pal, the Lizzie McGuire actress spent about thirty minutes browsing through a selection of shoes - opting for a pair of Christian Louboutins before walking back to her hotel.
Stick-thin Cheryl looks skinnier than ever
Shrinking Cheryl Cole looked thinner than ever as she embarked on the latest leg of the Girls Aloud tour this week.
Dowdily dressed in a long grey sweatshirt and jeans, the singer appeared to be a shadow of her former self.
And while her Girls Aloud band-mates seemed their usual chirpy selves, the singer looked distinctly miserable.
Cheryl, 24, along with her bandmates, has been staying at the Hilton hotel in Manchester.
And though the singer, who is said to weigh less than seven stone, tried to smile as she signed autographs for fans, she didn't seem to be fooling anyone.
Friends have apparently been worried about Cheryl's weight loss since allegations earlier this year that husband Ashley had cheated on her with a blonde waitress.
The pair have stayed together but the singer's weight appears to have plummeted ever since.

The real reason why Brian Austin Green hasn't been angling for a guest spot on the new 90210 spinoff? He's way too tired.
“I really enjoy having sex, and that’s offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women sluts, which I think is sad," Green's girlfriend and FHM's current No. 1 Hottie Megan Fox says in a new online interview with the men's mag.
"I haven’t met a lot of men who have said, ‘You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are.’ I’m young and have a lot of hormones—I’m always in the mood! But I like sex with one person when I’m in a relationship. Sex with random people who I’ve met at clubs is not really my thing."
The Transformers star adds: "I have the libido of a 15-year-old boy. My sex drive is so high. I’d rather have sex with Brian all the time than leave the house. He doesn’t mind.”
Per the Reporter, Hale will arrive at Chuck's store, Buy More, as a corporate efficiency expert who steps in as the new assistant manager. Once he sees how poorly things are run at the store, he decides to stay on for a while — and will no doubt wreak a little havoc in the meantime.
Plus, Hale's also joining ABC's Samanatha Who? as the leading lady's new doctor — a tidbit that Ausiello explains in his Tuesday vodcast.
I kind of posted this just for the AD quotage that comes with any post about anyone who veer appeared on that show.
It's once again Greek to Buffy/Angel alumna Charisma "No Words to Describe Her Inner and Outer Beauty" Carpenter , who will reprise her role as the national sorority representative she played in the ABC Family series' Season 1 finale.
Back then, CC's ZBZ rep launched an investigation into the scandal surrounding the resident brothers and sisters. In her encore, slated for this fall's season premiere, she helps Casey deal with a pledge who is causing trouble for the sorority.
Williams will play Wyatt, the latest assassin employed by The Company to brings brothers Michael and Lincoln's seemingly endless run to an... end. Prison Break returns for Season 4 on Monday, Aug. 25, with a two-hour episode.
Any other Cress fans out there? I've been familiar with his work since ER's early days, yes, and will always remember him giving Mr. Mars a scare on Veronica Mars.
"But what of PB's other Williams?" you may ask. Check back Wednesday for an update on poor, sad Bellick's fate.
Never even seen an episode of Prison Break, but I've always liked him so I posted it. Anyone remember him from Living Single?
Sony is moving forward with what may be the most unlikely superhero film yet: The Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen. The Knocked Up star will play Britt Reid, a bored playboy who inherits his father's crusading newspaper and spends his nights fighting crime with his sidekick, Kato. Additionally, Rogen is currently penning the film's script with his writing partner, Evan Goldberg (Superbad); Sony has yet to hire a director for the project. Hornet is due in theaters on June 25, 2010.
CORIN MOTHERFUCKING TUCKER
... of Sleater-Kinney fame
A heads up for the PDXers: Kevin and Anita Robinson, known collectively as the band Viva Voce (who, btw, are pretty kick ass and more than worth checking out) have formed a side project with some other musicians called Blue Giant. Why is this important? Well, it seems that Corin will be playing with them at their first show, which is scheduled for Friday, June 20th.
Blue Giant myspace
Perhaps the most fucking awesome woman on the planet. Someone PLEASE go to this. I'm so jealous of PDXers.
The article cites the reason for the split as Ifans' jealousy. The floppy-haired Welshman had allegedly grown suspicious over the possibility that Sienna was rekindling her love with former flame Matthew Rhys.
Having to communicate long-distance, the couple had grown apart in recent weeks and Miller reportedly broke the news to Ifans over the phone. According to the source Sienna found Rhys looking through text messages on Sienna's phone.
"She went bananas and Rhys said he was looking for what he called 'incriminating evidence.' He has been giving her a hard time lately, questioning her commitment to him and the time she puts into the relationship," the insider dished.
Sienna claims that she and her ex are simply close friends, however time will tell whether or not that's true.

On the menu: champagne cocktails, named after SATC inspirations including the "Carrie."
For dessert, Aguilera (who once spoofed Samantha Jones in a Saturday Night Live skit) served, "a cake designed with two Manolo Blahnik high heels made of sparkling sugar," a source told Usmagazine.com.
