Mandy Moores mother confused about Ryan Adams

No, Mom, Ryan, not Bryan!
Mandy Moore had some explaining to do after telling her mother, Stacy, about her latest squeeze. Mama Moore thought her little girl was dating rocker Bryan Adams, who, at 48, is twice Mandy's age.

"She told Mandy she loves his song 'Summer of '69,' " a source tells Star.

Mandy had to put Mom straight. Yes, he's a singer, but his name is Ryan Adams and hes much closer to her age, at only 33!

Do you think Mandy and Ryan make a good couple?

tell me something..does your tailor leave room in the crotch for your huge vagina?

Update on Muppet Movie

Last week, Jason Segel did an interview with IGN.com about some of his plans for the Muppet Movie... without revealing a whole lot other than who he wants hired and that the script has been submitted.

"While visiting the set of the upcoming bromance I Love You, Man, IGN met up with Jason Segel to discuss his recently submitted script for a new Muppets film. Segel was unable to share any specific details about the project, but did offer some info on the film's proposed premise.

"All I can say is that we are trying to bring it back to the early '80s movies where it's not Muppets in the Sahara or Muppets Underwater," Segel said. "It's the Muppets getting back together to put on a show to save the studio."

In regards to the plans for music, Segel told us he intends to ask original Muppets songwriter Paul Williams to return for the new film. "His songs were the best. We've written temp songs, but we'd like to fill them in with legitimate musician songs."

When asked about using CGI to create the Muppets, Segel expressed that he is adamantly against it. "No, no, no. Hopefully it will fall right in the pantheon of The Great Muppet Caper, Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Movie. You know, we're trying to make one of those."

Segel also discussed writing a cameo for former Muppets mainstay, Charles Grodin and others. "I wrote a brief cameo; we'll see if he wants to do it. There are some great cameos in there."

I love the random works that are Jason Segel's movies/tv shows. He is funny no matter what character.

Katie Holmes bumps Mario Lopez

The curtain will go up Sept. 18 for previews of Katie Holmes‘ Broadway debut, but not before a little controversy.

Katie‘ show, All My Sons needed a bigger theater for their run, so Mario Lopez’s A Chorus Line is getting booted from the theater they are currently showing in.

“Katie wouldn’t sign a long-term agreement with her show, which is why it’s the limited run that it is. They had to figure out how to make more money with the time they had with her,” said a source told MSNBC.

The solution: Move to a musical theater. “Musical theaters have more seats than a traditional playhouse, so they can sell more tickets each week,” the source said. “That’s how the show ended up at the Schoenfeld Theater (where “Chorus Line” runs). Because of the All My Sons rehearsal schedule, they had to cut Mario Lopez’s run in A Chorus Line.

“[Mario] might be People’s hottest bachelor, but he’s pissed,” said the source. “Let’s face it, he doesn’t have much going on right now.”

The production, which also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, officially opens Oct. 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre for a limited run through Jan. 11.

17 years have passed since 24 premiered, making Jack Bauer 52 years old

JACK Bauer will be turning 52 when the popular Fox drama returns next year.

At least, he should be.

When "24" comes back next January, four years will have passed on the series, Fox officials confirmed yesterday.

To emphasize the passage of time, Jack's sidekick, Chloe (Mary-Lynn Rajskub), who was revealed to be pregnant in last year's season finale, will suddenly have a 4-year-old kid to deal with.

For those keeping score at home, that means that 17 TV years have passed since Season 1, when Bauer first took on the Eastern European bad guys bent on revenge and destruction - and he was said to be 35 years old.

In chronological terms, next year will be the seventh season of the addictive suspense series and - in real life - Bauer doesn't look a day over 41 (Kiefer Sutherland's real age).

But in the world of "24," the year will be 2017, although chances are the show's writers and producers will never mention that. Nor will Bauer be artificially aged to more closely resemble his character's AARP-eligible status.

"We've always built in significant passages of time between seasons of '24' for dramatic purposes," said a spokesman from Fox, the studio that produces the show. "Luckily, like all great iconic characters, Jack Bauer is ageless."

While it's far from unheard of for TV dramas to time travel - "Desperate Housewives" will do the very same thing next fall - "24" is something of a special case for a variety of reasons. Not the least is that each season spans just one very hectic day.

It also may be a bit easier for viewers to digest when "24" finally returns after a year-long absence - the show was yanked this season when the Writers Guild strike made production impossible.

Adding to the illusion is a "24" TV movie next fall on Fox, that is being billed as a "prequel" to the new season.


So this means Kim is in her mid 30s. Huh.

Funfacts about 24:

  • '24' Premiered in 1991 as a half hour sitcom
  • Elisha Cuthbert is 33 years old.
  • Jack Bauer is half Romanian/half Jewish.
  • Barack Obama played the role of David Palmer in the pilot.


Leona Lewis and Anthony Kiedis Voted World's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2008

The votes have been counted, and the results are in. It's official — pop princess Leona Lewis and red hot chili pepper Anthony Kiedis are the sexiest vegetarian celebrities alive!

Kiedis recently went vegan after learning about the worldwide depletion of fish in the oceans and after a doctor recommended a healthy vegan diet for his son. "Soon after I [went vegan] I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows …. It sealed the deal," says Kiedis, who documented his earlier hard-partying ways in his autobiography, Scar Tissue.

By contrast, Lewis — whose album Spirit made her the first British artist to top the U.S. Billboard chart with a debut album — has a squeaky clean history. And when it comes to the dirty business of animal abuse, she's a woman of action. "I am vegetarian so I don't have clothes, shoes or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products. … I'm on a mission," she says.

Celebrities' reasons for keeping animals off their plates are as diverse and inspiring as their talents — from avoiding the inexcusable cruelty to animals on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, to improving their own health and helping the environment by not contributing to factory-farm pollution.

Want to do your part to help animals and become as sexy as our winners? Pledge to Be Veg for 30 days to explore a vegetarian diet for one month, and we'll e-mail you our favorite recipes as well as tips on the best places to eat out, the tastiest animal-friendly snacks, and the most delicious prepackaged vegetarian meals.

"Mimi" not performing at BET Awards


An updated list of performers and presenters for the 2008 BET Awards received from this morning did not include Mariah. According to BET, "Since it's a live show, there are always lots of last minute changes and updates." We'll let you know if we hear differently. Mariah is, however, expected to attend the awards proceedings.

Mariah's "Touch My Body" video is nominated for one of the Pre-Awards awards - the "LOL (Best Comedic Video)" award. This is another one that's based entirely on online votes. Click here to vote for Mariah as many times as you can!

Be sure to also keep on voting for Mariah to win the My Black is Beautiful's "Beautiful Healthy Smile" award.

The 2008 BET Awards will air live from the Shrine Auditorium on Tuesday, June 24th, 8pm ET on BET.

Meanwhile, the BET J special "Timeless" featuring Mariah Carey did not air as scheduled last week. It seems that there are some clearance issues holding things up, so it'll be at least a couple of weeks before the show airs. As soon as we know of a definite air date, we'll let you know. 


The promo for this album is a joke. It hasn't even passed a million in sales yet. FLOP! I don't who this Mimi ho is, but she needs to stop making crap music and bring back the OG Mariah Carey (you know, the one that could sing)

Big B is So Meaty........

Way to go Amit uncle.

Spot the difference

The production of a sequel to a film relies on the success of the one that came before it, and this success can depend on anything from special effects to the actors cast. So what happens when a studio wants a sequel but an actor wants out?

  If the company is lucky, they’ll have got their stars to sign at least a three-picture deal, keeping them chained to the project whether they like it or not. Lacking this foresight, they are forced to consider a tactic which can make or break the entire film: recasting.

  Unusually, two of this year’s biggest sequels have been hampered by this problem, with Katie Holmes’s character Rachel Dawes in Batman Begins replaced by Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Rachel Weisz handing Evelyn ‘Evie’ O’Connell, the part that made her famous in the Mummy films, to Maria Bello.

Seal is well known for being a little car crazy.

Just last month, the crooner showed off his new $150 000 Audi R8 during a day out in L.A. But it looks like Seal’s need for speed hasn’t quite been quenched.

Looking rough and tough yet still so sexy, Heidi Klum’s hubby was spotted driving around Beverly Hills in his latest a purchase — a Bentley Azure convertible.

The cost of Seal’s latest toy of the month? A cool $350 000.

DJ Yoon Do Hyun asked Tae Yang, “I’ll ask you a very sensitive question. This question might be more difficult to answer than one related to music. Who do you like more: WG or SNSD?” Yoon Do Hyun made others laugh by saying, “This is like asking do you like your mom or your dad?”

Tae Yang answered, “It’s very difficult to answer, but I’ll pick the Wonder Girls since we’ve had several collaborations and are all friends.”

Following his ansewr, Yoon Do Hyun asked if he’s friends with any of the SNSD members. Tae Yang answered, “No… so I would like to be friends with them.” After his answer, he gave an embarrassed smile.

Eustace Clarence Scrubb cast in Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Will Poulter, who has been cast as pain-in-the-butt Eustace Scrubb, the Pevensie children's cousin, in the next Narnia adventure to go before the cameras - The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader - which Michael Apted will direct.

Awful things happen to Eustace in this tale, but he learns. Will played Lee Carter, the scamp schoolboy in the film Son Of Rambow.

In fact, when I interviewed Will a few months ago I thought he'd be one holy terror, but he's a very likeable 14-year-old Londoner, and I was struck by his perfect manners.

In Voyage Of The Dawn Treader he'll join Ben Barnes, as Prince King Caspian, and Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley, as Edmund and Lucy. Peter and Susan don't feature in this story - at least not in the one C.S Lewis wrote.

The second Narnia picture, Prince Caspian, had its premiere last night and opens next week.

His IMDB page, and a pretty awesome interview with him about Son of Rambow.

In Son of Rambow (on the left):

This is perfect casting.

Curtis doesn't care about Taco Bell

Taco Bell offers 50 a deal; Rapper not amused

Music lovers may know Curtis Jackson by his rap alias 50 Cent, but the G-Unit leader may adopt another name if he accepts an offer from Taco Bell.

To promote its new "Why Pay More" value menu, Taco Bell sent 50 Cent an offer letter obtained by AllHipHop.com, asking him to change his name to either 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent for one day this summer.

Taco Bell Corp. President Greg Creed, who made the proposal in a letter written to 50 Cent's agent, also wrote that his company would make a $10,000 donation to a charity of the New York native's choice, if he accepts the request.

As part of the deal, 50 Cent would also have to make an appearance at any Taco Bell location around the country he chooses and rap his order in the drive-thru with his new name.

"We encourage you to 'Think Outside the Bun' and hope you accept our offer," Creed wrote to the world famous rapper's agent at the William Morris Agency.

50 Cent didn't find any humor in Creed's offer.

"When my legal team is finished with them, Taco Bell is going to have a new corporate slogan: 'We messed with the bull and got the horns,'" 50 Cent told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

A rep for the rapper issued a more detailed reply.

"This is a sleazy and ill-conceived publicity stunt by Taco Bell's president, Greg Creed, whose disingenuous offer was leaked to the press before it was even presented to 50 Cent's agent yesterday," the representative said.

Zack and Miri Make an NC-17 Movie?

zackandmiriusatoday2.jpg picture by coolerthanpie

Does the MPAA have it in for Kevin Smith? It’s beginning to sound like it. First they made the filmmaker remove an unapproved red band teaser trailer (which featured no footage from the actual film) from the web, and not it looks like Smith is having issues getting Zack and Miri Make a Porno by the ratings board.

“The MPAA is gunning for us, I think. It’s a really filthy movie. I hear they are having some problems getting an R rating from an NC-17 rating, which is never good,” Seth Rogen told MTV. “A guy f—ing a donkey, they ain’t got no problem with. But a man and a woman having sex they seem to have real issues with, for some weird reason. It’s insane. It’s completely insane.”

I knew when the title was first announced that Smith and company would probably have a few hurtles to jump when it came time to go up against the MPAA. I doubt The Weinstein Co is willing to release the film with an NC-17 rating, which means that Smith likely have to make cuts to get a theatrical R-rating. But don’t worry, Smith always includes a ton of extra footage on his DVD releases. If anything is cut, you can expect to see it on the DVD. As for the MPAA, I highly recommend everyone rent or buy the documentary This Film Has Not Yet Been Rated. I understand the need for ratings but the whole MPAA process is beyond ridiculous.


Kristen Bell Drunk In Rome

The Italian leg of shooting When In Rome begain in Italy on Thursday evening (June 19th). The star of the movie Kristen Bell was hitting a bottle of whiskey while walking through a fountain.

Kristen recently told FHM UK that her crush as a young girl she wasn’t somebody like Brad Pitt, instead it was Hockey player Chris Osgood.

She said, Brad Pitt be damned – he had nothing on Osgood’s rookie skill and sad eyes. There was actually a day in high school when I wrote on a name tag ‘Mrs. Osgood’ and wore it the whole day. I really thought we were perfect for each other. I’d love to meet him – and probably apologize that things never worked out.”

Inspiration for Kermit the Frog dies...

Kermit Scott, inspiration for Muppet, dies at 71
The Associated Press
June 18, 2008

LELAND, Miss. - Kermit Scott, the man believed to be the inspiration for Jim Henson's proto-Muppet, Kermit the Frog, has died. He was 71.

Scott's brother-in-law, Aaron Moss, said the retired philosophy professor who lived in Monroe, Va., died last month.

Henson and Scott grew up as friends in Leland, a small Mississippi Delta town now home to a Muppets museum.

Family and friends said Scott shared his namesake's whimsical smile.

The Henson family moved away from Leland and the two lost touch.

Scott went on to become a philosophy professor at Yale, Purdue and Millsaps College, and was an advocate for the poor. He and his wife, Aadron, founded the Welfare Rights Organization and the food bank of Lafayette, Ind.

The Restaurant Report Card is a segment on CBS in Atlanta where Adam Murphy goes to restaurants that failed the health inspection.

I'm assuming Ludacris got a good score, as I don't have sound on this computer. Any Atlanta people been to Straits? I am boycotting, as the downloadable menu (here) uses Papyrus.

'I'll Pick Ryan's Wife,' Says Seacrest's Mom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ryan Seacrest might be a big shot executive these days, but there's one decision he won't be making without his mommy.

The TV mogul's mother, Connie, says that she expects to have a say when it comes to choosing his future wife!

"I'll certainly get a vote," she told Parade.com. "I want Ryan to make the right choice. I guess that's a mother's dream."

But Connie, who feature's in his new NBC show Momma's Boys, says she has a little work to do on the American Idol host's lifestyle before Mrs Right is even going to look twice.

"Ryan likes to date, but he's so busy now. There's not a woman in the world that wants to go out with a guy who gets up at 4:30 in the morning and goes to bed at 8:30 at night.

"We're going to find him a better life as far as not working every single hour of the day before he makes a commitment."

But when the time is right, Mamma Seacrest she can vouch that her boy will make a great husband.

"But every woman should know that if the guy treats his momma well, he'll definitely take care of the girlfriend, and that describes Ryan perfectly."

Jessica Alba, Will Arnett, and NPH to guest on Sesame Street

Well, tickle me' Elmo, but were the guest stars on Sesame Street always this hot? I just remember Mr. Hooper and all those married couples in leisure suits.

The seminal kids' show launches its 39th season on Aug. 11 with a veritable parade of hotness: Jessica Alba, David Beckham, Heidi Klum, Neil Patrick Harris, Sandra Oh, Jenny McCarthy and Dolphins defensive end (and Dancing With the Stars runner-up) Jason Taylor will attempt to help the nuggets with their reading, writing and arithmetic, but will mostly be on hand just to kick their sexual development into gear. Can you spell H-O-R-M-O-N-E-S, kids?

"The Street" will also include some "legitimate" guest stars. Will Arnett, who knows a thing or two about playing an "illusionist," will portray a new character, Max the Magician, a prestidigitator (look it up) who teaches kids math with his "tricks." Feist will appear, and will presumably sing that "1 2 3 4" song that lodged in my brain for much of last year after it appeared on an iPod commercial. NBC anchor — and SNL vet — Brian Williams will show up to teach kids about the news.

This season the show will also introduce its first Indian-American character, Leela, who will work at the Street's new Laundromat, sharing her heritage and culture through singing and dancing. Plus, a new segment will trace the adventures of a Claymation Bert and Ernie. But, oh, the hotness, my friends!

Actor Matthew Broderick: Our Son Is "Curious" About Smoking

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Matthew Broderick admits that he and wife Sarah Jessica Parker (aka "Carrie Bradshaw") still smoke – and he predicts it will rub off on their 5-year-old son, James.

"[He's] already curious," Broderick told New York.

"I can just see the little budding gene of a smoker in there," Broderick said. "He'll see a cigarette butt and say, 'What is that? Why do people smoke?'"

As for his own smoking habit, Broderick revealed: "I used to smoke cigarettes, and I still do, lately. I gave that up a long time ago, but every now and then I will fall off for a week."

Sex and the City star Parker is "worse than me on that," Broderick added.

Norman H. Edelman — chief medical officer with the American Lung Association — says he wouldn't be surprised if James Wilkie started smoking.

"Children of smokers are much more likely to become smokers themselves," Edelman tells Us, adding that more than 438,000 people die each year in the U.S. from smoking-related illnesses.

For information on how to quit, call the American Lung Association's Lung HelpLine at 1-800-LUNGUSA, or visit www.lungusadc.org.

Dr. Drew is still talking..............

Dr. Drew wonders if Angelina Jolie is still on drugs,
calls her charity “self-serving”

TV psychiatrist Dr. Drew Pinsky had the Scientologists calling him a Nazi after he said in a recent interview that Cruise’s involvement in the cult looks like “a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious neglect in childhood - maybe some abuse, but mostly neglect.” Pinsky half-heartedly apologized in a bland statement afterward, with his rep saying “Dr. Drew meant no harm to Mr.

Cruise and apologizes if his comments were hurtful.” You can’t blame the guy for not being more contrite after Cruise’s lawyer compared him to infamous Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. Cruise wasn’t the only celebrity Dr. Drew dissed in that interview in Playboy. He made a really sweeping statement about Angelina Jolie’s admission of past drug use, saying no one ever gets past using heroin and that he questions whether she’s still sober. He also called her charity work “self-serving.”
“I’m concerned with what’s really going on with Angelina Jolie,” he said in July’s issue of Playboy. “I’ve never seen someone remit heroin completely. You’re either still on heroin, Oxycontin or something else. Unless you’re dead. Is she still using something? Is she in recovery. If she’s in recovery, I don’t see any evidence of it, because people in recovery invest themselves in simple, selfless acts of service, not global self-serving acts.”
[From In Touch, print edition, June 30, 2008]

So, according to Dr. Drew there are no former heroin users who lead normal lives without attending meetings. Maybe he only sees the hard cases, but that seems like a pretty broad generalization.

Today is World Refugee Day and Angelina recorded a video to bring attention to the plight of displaced people throughout the world. Except somehow it’s all about her, since she admits to doing heroin in her past and no one who’s ever done heroin at any point can go on to lead a normal life without staying in recovery for the rest of their life, right Dr. Drew?

I don’t know how old these photos of Angelina are since they were undated, but she looks like she’s on something here.

Estelle Scares Men Away


British rapper/singer ESTELLE's feisty attitude scares off prospective suitors - and leaves English men terrified of asking her out on a date.

The American Boy hitmaker, who moved to New York to further her music career, fears she will never have a British boyfriend because of her straight talking approach.

And the star says it doesn't matter how tough they act - she can detect their terror just by looking at them

She says, "Guys here (England) are scared of me. They may deny it but when I look in their eyes I see the fear."




Warring exes DENISE RICHARDS and CHARLIE SHEEN are back in court in Los Angeles on Friday (20Jun08) for another ugly clash.

After weeks of trading insults through the media, Richards was forced to miss a photoshoot for her reality TV show, and revealed during an interview on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM show that Sheen had summoned her to court.
She told Seacrest - who produces her show, Denise Richards: It's Complicated - "I am sitting in the parking lot at the courthouse. He decided to take me to court this morning.

"If he is here we will see each other today. I imagine he'll be here. He's the one taking me to court. He should be here."
Richards refused to reveal the nature of the hearing but it follows a fierce battle over custody of their two young daughters following their divorce in 2006.

The actress insists she is still hopeful there will be an end to the pair's increasingly public war, telling Seacrest, "I hope that there is a way out. That's the goal. This is ugly and humiliating and it's bad for our children.
"For the girls' sake, the best thing is for he and I to be cordial. It would happen on my part."

Karl Lagerfeld dons a reflective yellow vest for a new French road safety campaign, declaring, "It's yellow, it's ugly, it doesn't match anything, but it can save your life."

According to Bloomberg, "Lagerfeld agreed to pose in the shapeless protective apparel as part of a French government safety-awareness campaign, which was kicked off yesterday. The vest and a reflective triangle will become mandatory for all drivers and cyclists on July 1. The number of traffic deaths in France jumped 10 percent to 346 in May, the highest since the beginning of the year, the Ministry of Environment said on its Web site. Two cyclists have died in Paris since the introduction of free municipal bicycles last year"

A Racy Story About Jeff Gordon

June 20th, 2008 by Andy

Ok guys, this one is too hot too keep, although somewhat dated……..but since we had the piece from TMZ on J.G. and his new bride, I’ll put this one on the web for you to absorb. Now it is a little curvy getting to the last lap, but bear with me and the end will be worth it, especially if you’re not a J.G. fan.

Back when Gordon was going through what could have been a nasty divorce, you never heard anything from his X, the Lovely Brook Gordon, other than she wanted to get paid. Well according to my sources, she held a HUGE trump card.

I was dating a professional makeup artist, who was really good friends with Michael Waltrip’s wife, who was tight with Gordon’s then wife. Waltrip’s wife told my pal that Brook Gordon had knowledge of Gordon being involved sexually with another man-caught in bed with, to be exact-the man, none other than Jimmy Johnson!!!!! You talk about leverage on the jack!! Like I said a little curvy, but pretty good sources, however, I cannot and don’t want to have first hand knowledge of this!

Now, all you Gordon haters-and there are a lot, can enhance the “rainbow warrior” name as far as you want.

I do know that ole Brookie got paid ALL she wanted and never a whimper to the press as far as anything nasty. We report-you decide!!!!

30 ridiculous celebrity demands

1. Barbra Streisand - During a recent visit to London, Barbra Streisand made similar requests at two different hotels. These included rose petals in the toilet (WTF? You’re just going to pee on them anyway), peach colored toilet tissue to match her complexion, and 120 designer bath towels, also in peach.

2. Christina Aguilera must have a police escort meet her at the airport and lead her limo because she refuses to deal with traffic. Backstage, she must have a jar of Flinstones Vitamins.

3. Mariah Carey insists a new toilet seat and gold faucets are installed in her hotel suite before she checks in. She flies in her own personal bed linens and must have enough of a certain kind of mineral water so she and her dog can bathe in it each day. Also, when on tour Mariah’s dressing room must contain one box of bendy straws, two air purifiers, puppies and kittens (oh dear Lord), an attendant to take her used chewing gum and Cristal champagne.

Popular Mechanics:10 Funniest Spy Gadgets in Movies ... Ever

10. Contact Lens Videocamera // I Spy (2002)

Like Get Smart, this Eddie Murphy-Owen Wilson comedy was based on a show from the 1960s, originally starring Bill Cosby and Robert Culp as a secret agent and a tennis star teamed together to, well, save the world. Unlike Get Smart, however, the silver-screen version of I Spy was, um, not so much. But it did feature a few memorable scenes involving super-spy and his gear. In an assignment briefing, Wilson doesn’t get his hands on any of the gee-whiz stuff, like an exploding pager and “monofilament phone descender.” Instead, he receives equipment that looks like it was last used in the early 1950s. In the flick’s funniest bit, Murphy offers Wilson lessons in seduction via a contact lens rigged with a camera and microphone that functions as a 21st century Cyrano de Bergerac. How else could you get Wilson to deliver the lyrics to “Sexual Healing” to Famke Jansen completely straight-faced? Well, let’s not count the ways....

Jesse McCartney defends Miley Cyrus

Singer/songwriter Jesse McCartney has defended Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus's controversial Vanity Fair shoot - insisting the pictures were not "offensive".

The 21-year-old stuck up for the 15-year-old actress following the backlash the Disney Channel star encountered after posing for photos, which have been deemed too sexy for a teenager .

Cyrus' clean cut image was damaged by the release of images of her wrapped in just a satin bedsheet in June's edition of the U.S. magazine.

And McCartney can't understand why the media reacted so strongly.

He says, "I think that people are nuts. I didn't find any of the photos offensive in Vanity Fair. I thought they were artistic if anything.

"It sucks man. Everything about Miley was so sensationalised. I really feel for her you know."


Hindus Furious About Mike Myers film

Controversy over "The Love Guru"

Movie executives at Paramount Pictures have honoured their promise to preview Mike Myers' new film The Love Guru for concerned Hindu leaders in Los Angeles.

Hindus, led by Rajan Zed, campaigned to see the film before its release on Friday - in a bid to make sure their fears about the movie were overblown.

But the screening has only served to bolster the religious opposition to the film, which Zed and his followers insist is disrespectful to Hindus and their beliefs.

Zed has now urged Hindus around the world to boycott the movie, claiming the picture "lampoons Hinduism and Hindu concepts and uses Hindu terms frivolously".

After attending the screening on Thursday, Zed rages, "The Love Guru is even more denigrating than we earlier perceived from the information gathered from trailers, websites and other sources.

"Mike Myers' guru instigates a bar fight, repeatedly narrates penis jokes, mocks yoga - one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophy, wears female jewelery, mocks the concept of third eye, makes disciples drink tea passed through his nose, orders alligator soup, induces elephant copulation in front of the crowd, introduces himself as 'His Holiness', lives in a lavish ashram staffed with scantily clad maids, and whose goal in life seems to appear on the Oprah Winfrey show."

And the Hindu leader has suggested other religious groups should give the film, in which Myers plays an oddball guru called Pitka, a miss.

He adds, "Today it is Hinduism, tomorrow Hollywood might attempt to denigrate another religions.

"Hinduism is often misunderstood and wrongly portrayed outside India. Movies like this bring more confusion and create stereotypes in the minds of audience."

Jessica Simpson designing Country-Western clothing

Jessica Simpson is expanding her fashion empire yet again. The buxom blonde has already introduced a line of sunglasses, swimsuits, and footwear under the Jessica Simpson brand and now J.S is developing a line of country-western wear to debut by the Summer of 2009.

It’s all apart of dad Joe Simpson’s plan to help Jessica sail to the top of the country charts. Joe thinks a new “designer denim and western wear” clothing line will help Jess cash in on her new country image and fan base.

“Joe realized it’d be a natural for Jessica to design a line that included everything from tight-fitting jeans to cowboy hats,” a Star Magazine insider says. “She’s really a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl anyway…If things go well, Jessica should have her name on people’s butts by the Summer of 2009.”
Jessica, whose first country single “Come On Over” made an impressive Billboard debut, unofficially retired from pop music last week.


Keira Knightley happy to get naked on-screen

Keira Knightley has no problem appearing in the buff for her latest film. In fact, she says it's becoming a habit.

"I always bare my breasts," she said at the press conference to promote The Edge of Love Wednesday at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. "It's not like it's only in this film!"

The British actress, 23, is best known for the Pirates of the Caribbean films; last year she went au naturale in the period drama Atonement.

Referring to a scene in the wartime romance The Edge of Love with her onscreen husband Cillian Murphy, Knightley said: "It was very simple. It was a sex scene and I never like them when they've got bras on."

So when the director asked her to remove her bra, "I said, 'All right then.'"

But when it came to her singing scenes, the British actress needed much more persuasion. On hearing she had to sing live in front of the cast and 100 extras, she said, "I thought I was going to die. My knees actually started buckling."

The film was written by Sharman Macdonald, Knightley's mother, who says her actress daughter was the inspiration for writing the period romance that also stars Sienna Miller, 26, and Matthew Rhys (Brothers and Sisters.)

"I wasn't particularly pleased that Shar put singing into the script – in the first couple of takes I sounded like a apubescent boy," says Knightley, who calls her mom Shar and instead of mother.

At the film's premiere in Scotland on Wednesday, Knightley (in a cream Chanel jumpsuit) and Miller (in a Jasmine de Milo dress) walked the red carpet holding hands.

The two fashionable costars "are incredibly warm in the film and that's the way they are in life," says mom Macdonald. "They knew each other slightly before and then they just completely bonded on the film. I hope they will be friends for life!"


Paris Hilton stopped smoking weed due to weight gain

The newest issue of my favorite gossip rag, The National Enquirer, has an amusing story claiming that Paris Hilton has quit smoking pot because she was eating too much when she was high. They say that “Paris gets stoned all the time” and eats like crazy. She supposedly started noticing that her clothes were tight and decided that she needed to give up the herb if she didn’t want to buy a new wardrobe. Maybe she also got sick of people calling her pregnant after she had a pot-induced meal:

[Paris Hilton] became concerned recently because her clothes have been growing tight and she knew she was gaining weight. But it didn’t take her long to figure out why - Paris smokes a lot of dope and gets the munchies!

So now she’s decided to throw away the pipe to avoid the munchies and get back to her ideal weight, The Enquirer has learned exclusively.

“Paris gets stoned all the time!” said the source. “She will go to the bathroom to smoke at different Hollywood clubs, or sometimes she’ll just light up in the VIP area…

Paris showed up at a small house party once complaining that she ate a huge bag of chips before the party because she was stoned.”

And a Hollywood source told The Enquirer that when Paris couldn’t get into certain dresses she loved recently, she decided to give up smoking dope.

“That was it for Paris,” said the source. “She said the munchies were making her eat too much and she couldn’t believe how much weight she had gained.”

Smith tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, “Tom has a room for training. We don’t get enough time for hanging out, just us three guys, so this is his way of getting together and bonding.

“David and I go to his home and just do fencing. It’s a lot of fun.

“We wanted an activity that was strenuous, but we’re getting older - we have to think about slowing down. We’ve got to watch our joints. Especially my knee… Ow.”

Of course he too is sworn to secrecy about the plot, but was able to share his thoughts on director Chistopher Nolan and how roles are expanding for Latin actors. Carbonell is not only familiar with superhero roles having portrayed a Batman-like character on the cult TV series 'The Tick', but is working on the Batman cartoon and shares rumors that Heath Ledger's performance in the film may be Oscar worthy.

Robbie Williams is a weirdo.

The ‘Angels’ singer has reportedly told friends he "sees a lot ofhimself" in Lily and wants to spend an evening with her when she is inLos Angeles, where he lives.

Robbie hopes to take the 23-year-old singer – who has recently been criticised for her drunken antics – to his favourite restaurant STK before heading for a night of star gazing for spaceships.
A friend of Robbie, 34, told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Robbie loves Los Angeles but the one thing he does miss is the British sense of humours and impudence, so Lily’s attitude appeals to him. “He thought it would be nice to meet up while she’s recording her album in town and got his people to call Lily’s people to invite her for dinner at his favourite restaurant.“

Rob likes to be a big brother figure to celebrities who seem to find themselves in the same position he has been – young and vulnerable and in the glare of the media. “And he feels that taking an interest in UFOs and the unknown is a good way of putting things in perspective, hence asking Lily to join him.
Earlier this week, it was revealed Robbie has taken up camping in the hope of seeing an alien. A source close to the star said: “Robbie has been taking pals out to the woods for long weekends. He wants to live like a cowboy in a Western. He also has a fascination with UFOs and thinks he has more chance of seeing one away from Los Angeles’ bright lights.”
Earlier this year, it was claimed Robbie was planning to splash out £2.5 million on an alien observatory after spending all his free time visiting Arizona's National Optical Astronomy Observatory, in Tucson. He has previously claimed to have been visited by extra-terrestrials on more than one occasion. Describing one close encounter of the third kind, he said: "I was lying on my sun lounger outside at night. Above me was a square thing that passed over my head slightly and shot off."

“It is extremely difficult dating a pop star and they were apart for huge amounts of time. He does his own thing and couldn't really join her when she was on tour.

“Sarah was constantly linked with other men and, even though it's always been perfectly innocent, he found it tough.”

And when asked if there were any on-set romances that maybe going on off set as well, Chace joked, “Where did you hear that? I’ve never heard that one before.” (See: Blake Lively and Penn Badgley)

christie brinkley's divorce proceedings will be open to the media

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Christie Brinkley was never one to turn down a cover story.

A New York judge ruled Friday that the former supermodel's divorce proceedings will remain open to the media, despite her soon-to-be ex-husband's objections that their kids could suffer from the 24/7 news cycle once the couple's dirty laundry hits the proverbial public clothesline.

Court transcripts and most records will remain sealed, however, because this is a family court case.

"We are pleased with the judge's decision and wish this didn't happen. Since the case hasn't been able to be resolved, Ms. Brinkley looks forward to her day in court," Brinkley attorney Robert S. Cohen said after court, per Newsday.

Not that Brinkley is really looking forward to dumping her private life into a fishbowl (again), however.

"I still remain hopeful that these matters can be settled privately," the 54-year-old cover girl said in a statement today.

Brinkley filed for divorce from her admitted philanderer of a husband, architect Peter Cook, in September 2006 after 10 years of marriage after Cook admitted to having affairs with two teenage girls, including his then-17-year-old office assistant and singer Samantha Cole, who told the New York Post she was just 18 when her dalliance with Brinkley's hubby began.

"She's interested in paying Peter back for the adultery," Cook's attorney, Norman Sheresky, said. "That's what this is all about. I think it's going to make her look worse."

The estranged duo have one daughter together, Sailor, who will be 10 next month, and Cook adopted Brinkley's son, Jack, 13, who she had with third husband Richard Taubman.


questions arise as top hip hop acts near the end of their contracts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As a string of high-profile hip-hop artists near the end of their record contracts, a question looming over their pending free agency isn't which major label they'll sign with but whether they should sign with a major at all.

One prominent rap artist has already jumped ship: Jay-Z signed a long-term recording, publishing and management deal earlier this year with Live Nation. A Def Jam spokeswoman says Jay-Z has one album left on his contract with the label, but Def Jam head Shakir Stewart recently told Billboard "we're still working it out."

While few rappers can match the pull and marketability of the former Def Jam president, big names like 50 Cent, LL Cool J and OutKast will soon be on the market as well. Although they may ultimately re-sign with major labels, their camps have indicated that they are at least contemplating the possibility of a future without a major-label deal.

LL Cool J will complete his three-album deal with Def Jam with the Aug. 5 release of "Exit 13." By the end of the year, 50 Cent is expected to put out "Before I Self Destruct," the fourth and final album on his Interscope deal. OutKast owes LaFace/Zomba three more albums under the duo's four-album contract, with all three releases expected out later this year and next year.

Representatives for Def Jam, Interscope and LaFace/Zomba declined to comment on the contracts.

Tiphanie Watson, co-manager for OutKast's Big Boi, says the duo hasn't decided yet whether to seek another deal with a major, but adds, "It's much more beneficial to do it on your own. For an artist with an established fan base, there's more than one way to come up with strategic branding."

Signing with an indie label is the best option for hip-hop stars nearing the end of their deals, says Alan Grunblatt, GM/executive VP of Koch Records, which has charted with Jim Jones, DJ Khaled and Yung Berg. "With a major you'd get an advance, no masters and the deal would be based strictly on royalties," Grunblatt says. "Koch would do a licensing and/or a P&D deal."

Selling music independently via such distribution partnerships has appeal, but majors are creating those partnerships too. In 2007, rap duo the Clipse signed a joint-venture deal with Columbia Records and retained ownership of its masters.

Atlantic A&R executive Jean Nelson says not to discount the majors, arguing that 50 Cent, LL Cool J and OutKast would all be appealing signings. "It's about how much a label can support you, not the advance money," Nelson says.

LOS ANGELES - Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have set a wedding date, and to hear the talk show host tell it, the ceremony is going to be a doozy.

DeGeneres, who won her fourth consecutive Daytime Emmy for talk show host Friday night, told reporters backstage at the Kodak Theatre that she and de Rossi are planning their "dream wedding."

"Yes, we have set a wedding date," said DeGeneres. "How do I feel about it? I obviously feel like it's long overdue. I think someday people will look back on this like women not having the right to vote and segregation and anything else that seems ridiculous that we don't all have the same rights."

While the day is on the calendar, DeGeneres didn't say when or where it would take place.

DeGeneres said she plans to fly the de Rossi family in from Australia and that "incredible people" would sing at the ceremony. She said she would show "a tiny bit" of the nuptials on her talk show — and joked that she would use her latest Daytime Emmy as a wedding-cake topper.

"Planning a wedding is very stressful," said DeGeneres. "It's crazy. My gardener is now invited."

Mike Myers visits Conan remains a douche while doing so.

MIKE Myers wants his demands met. The comic made an appearance on NBC's "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" Wednesday to promote "The Love Guru," but he drove backstage staffers bonkers while he waited to go on. "He sent a team of interns on a wild goose chase for Silk nondairy creamer, Twizzlers and raspberry seltzer," said our witness. "Then he sent one of the interns back out to get him a new drink when he realized his seltzer was not the brand he requested."

Quel suprise. After this article you'd think he'd calm the fuck down.
