Justin Timberlake and Erin Wasson for William Rast


Justin Timberlake never really wanted to be the face of the William Rast brand.

That was, until new creative directors Johan and Marcella Lindeberg presented him with a plan.

"We came up with this idea for him to play a role as this guy named William Rast," Johan Lindeberg said. "So it isn't meant to be Justin, it's Justin playing a role, as an actor. When we explained the idea, he instantly loved it and got really into building the profile of this character."

The multimedia campaign includes a series of short, Web-based documentaries titled "My Name Is William Rast," featuring Timberlake, who represents a mysterious rebel, and model Erin Wasson, who plays Birdie, his love interest.

Shot and directed by Jonas Akerlund, a Grammy-winning filmmaker who has worked with the likes of Madonna and U2, the documentaries are set in what looks to be Timberlake's home state of Tennessee, although they were actually filmed in the contemporary brand's home base of Los Angeles.

The story follows Timberlake and Wasson on the run from what seems to be the police, as they have apparently just committed a crime. Decked head to toe in William Rast gear, the couple stops for occasional steamy make-out sessions before running through the woods to escape from gunshots heard in the distance.

Marcella Lindeberg said the films, which were all shot in 16-mm. for a raw feel, were created to leave something to the imagination.

"You never really know who they are running from or what they are running toward," she said. "But the characters are developed in such a way so we can carry the story on through seasons to come."

In addition to playing the leading role in the campaign, Timberlake also wrote the score and contributed to the screenplays.

The documentaries are set to air later this month on williamrastmovie.com. They will launch in conjunction with the redesign of the brand's Web site, williamrast.com, where the collection also can be purchased. While the films will serve as the centerpiece, a print campaign — which was shot to look like a series of movie posters leading the reader to williamrastmovie.com — is set to run in September issues of women's and men's high-end fashion magazines in the U.S. and internationally. It also will run outdoors, in select urban areas, including New York and Los Angeles.

"Fall will showcase our first full collection, so we felt that this was the right time to get the name and the image of the brand out there," said Colin Dyne, chief executive officer of William Rast. "At first, we were going to only do a print campaign, but we really wanted to utilize the Internet to reach our demographic and create a buzz around the brand. Using new media is crucial in today's world."

'Dark Knight' Dilemma: How Did Heath Ledger's Death Affect Film's Marketing?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Imagine this: You've been handed a toy box filled with $150 million, one of the most iconic franchises in modern-day pop culture, and critically acclaimed acting heavyweights such as
Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Michael Caine. With a mere seven months to go until you steer your film across the box-office finish line, however, one of the stars you've been staring at every day in the editing bay suddenly passes away, leaving a legion of fans in mourning. What do you do?

Heath Ledger's shocking death on January 22 left behind many unanswered questions about the security of his family, the legacy of his career and whether the tragedy could have been prevented. Once the smoke began to clear, however, another conversation point emerged: How do you sell the biggest popcorn movie of the year in the midst of tragedy?

There was simply no playbook. Actors from John Candy ("Wagons East," "Canadian Bacon") to Aaliyah ("Queen of the Damned") to Tupac ("Gridlock'd") all had films released after their deaths and marketed upon their names, but such movies weren't in the same financial stratosphere as "The Dark Knight." The actor most similar to Ledger at the time of his tragic death was James Dean, whose "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Giant" were both released after his fatal car accident — but that was 50 years ago. The only deceased star whose situation even began to mirror the "Dark Knight" predicament was Brandon Lee, shot dead on the set of the comic book film "The Crow," but Lee was a far lesser-known actor than Ledger at the time of his death.

"He was on another film," director Christopher Nolan remembered recently of that uncertain time. "It had been months and months since we'd wrapped, and we'd cut a lot of the film together, and we'd watched the film a couple of times. We were about halfway through the edit process."

Nolan knew that he had something special on his hands, as Ledger's immersion into the role of the Joker was already building into the stuff of legend. Tragically, the star himself hadn't lived to see the finished product.

Just an excuse to post about The Kills tbh

Music & Me: Alison Mosshart of The Kills




The first record I bought was?
I don’t honestly remember. There was no place to buy records where I was living, so I used to tape songs off the radio and listen to them on my Walkman.

The first gig I went to was?
A band called Dirty Poodle at a skate park in Melbourne, Florida.The singer was a guy called Scott Becky. He used to paint his fingernails blue and play surfy guitar. His lyrics were surreal, about animals and things catching fire.Once he wrote down his address for me so we could write letters. Next to the address he drew a picture of his house, his car, the fence, a rooster on the front lawn. There was so much information.

Myfavourite album is?
Ice Cream For Crowby, Captain Beefheart.

But my parents always liked?
I didn’t know what they liked. They never listened to music, but recently I was home digging through some stuff and I found my dad’s record collection. He had a lot of Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd and stuff like that.

I couldn’t marry someone who liked?
Avril Lavigne.

On stage I like to wear?
Jeans andT-shirts, capes with horses and lightning, Indian ponchos, gold boots? whatever I fancy that night.

I’d love to perform with?
Don Van Vliet [aka Captain Beefheart], him just talking and talking down the microphone the way he does, real slow and cool.

One thing that must change in the music industry is?
The music industry itself. There’s very little soul or art left in it. Real artists are seen as a total risk, because they can’t be moulded. I try to keep out of it, mentally and emotionally, as much as I can.

A great album cover is?
Captain Beefheart, Trout Mask Replica. That’s a real dead fish head on Don’s face. He said it had a really terrible smell.

On my iPod I listen most to?
Again, all the Beefheart records because his voice is so sincere and his lyrics are so bizarre. And I’ve been listening to Moondog’s The Viking Of Sixth Avenue just as much for his lack of lyrics. Also, a lot of Townes Van Zandt.

If I could have written any song it would have been?
“Waiting Around To Die” by Townes Van Zandt or “Do You Like Me?” by Fugazi.

The worst song I’ve heard is?
Anything by Paula Abdul or New Kids OnThe Block. This list could easily be endless.

The Kills’ new single ’Last Day Of Magic’ is out now on Domino.

I used to have nightmares about the Trout Mask Replica cover tbh.

Gary Oldman's Bond ambition



Gary Oldman wants to star in a James Bond spin-off.

The 50-year-old actor - who can soon be seen in new Batman movie 'The Dark Knight' - would love to see a film based entirely on 007's gadget expert friend Q.

Oldman said: "I wouldn't want to be a Bond villain because once you do it you are kind of at the end of the line. I wouldn't mind playing Q in a spin-off movie all about him."

The actor - who won rave reviews for his directorial debut 'Nil By Mouth' in 1997 - also revealed he is planning to step behind the camera once more for conjoined-twin drama 'Chang And Eng'.

He added: "I've been working on that project for the last couple of years. But that process of writing gets interrupted because you have to go off and earn money and you have got kids. Someone said to me the other day, 'Oh, it's such a shame you haven't directed since 'Nil By Mouth'.

"And you go, 'Well I've been bringing up these two boys for the last 10 years - that's my project, that's the movie. But it's time 'Chang And Eng' saw the light of day."

Megan Put On 10 Pounds In Three Weeks


Megan Fox attended the Fox All-Star Party at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, CA on Monday night (July 14).
The Transformers actress was dressed in a white Star Wars t-shirt and a pair of simple jeans. Megan spoke to Fox News about having to gain 10 pounds in three weeks for her role in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen because she lost weight for her movie Jennifer’s Body.
On why she gained the weight: “I should have toned up for ‘Transformers’ but I’m really lazy. I had to put on weight, I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for ‘Transformers’ because Michael [Bay, the director] doesn’t like skinny girls.”
How she lost weight for Jennifer’s Body and put it back on: “I just stopped eating, I don’t eat very healthy anyway — I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”
If there is love scenes with Shia LaBeouf: “There are no big love scenes, At this point Shi and I have been dating for two years so we’re at the bickering stage, like an old married couple.”

Wife leaves Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood over cocktail waitress affair
By HOWARD KISSEL
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

When news first broke on Friday that Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood had run off to Ireland with an 18-year-old cocktail waitress, Wood's wife decided the pair were just drinking buddies.

But over the weekend she took a dimmer view of the matter and announced she was leaving the legendary guitarist, whose net worth is estimated at $140 million.

Wood, holed up in his country house, has done a nude painting of his young friend, the Khazakstan-born Ekaterina Ivanova. The painting is now hanging in a Dublin gallery, labeled Photography Nude 11, and priced at $16,000. Wood has not officially named her as the model.

The guitarist has yet to visit the gallery but he and his young friend have been spotted at nearby pubs.

Wood, who admitted his alcoholism publicly in 2000, is said to have met Ivanova three months ago after a premiere of "Shine a Light." A source told the UK's Daily Mail the young blond has become a drinking buddy of the rock star.

"He is drinking two bottles of vodka a day and there is no way he would be behaving like this if he was sober," the source added.

Jo, Wood's wife of 23 years, previously told reporters the two are on a painting trip together, and that they are certainly not "boyfriend and girlfriend - in that way." She is, however, aware of the wild ways of the young Russian girl.

"She is mad - she is a terrible alcoholic," the UK's Daily Telegraph reported her as saying. "I know her - she's been here. I was quite all right that she was hanging around with him. Ronnie told me she was staying there and I said, 'OK - get on with it and have a drink, go mad. Drink your guts up.' "

Wood's Rolling Stones bandmates are reportedly urging the guitarist to get help. The Daily Telegraph reports that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and even Rod Stewart, have all called Wood several times out of concern that he has hit rock bottom.

"Mick, Keith and Rod have been calling saying 'what the hell are you doing?' but nothing's getting through. Ronnie is adamant this girl is just a friend but he's not thinking rationally. His family just want him to get better and come home," a source told the Telegraph.

Interview: Wil Wheaton on Writing, Movies and Comics



 Writer, actor and soon-to-be publishing mogul Wil Wheaton has come a long way since his days as a child actor in such breakout roles as Gordie LaChance in Stand By Me and Joey Trotta in Toy Soldiers. But even with those popular and well-known performances, Wheaton was really thrust into the limelight as a cast member of the the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, where he played Wesley Crusher for several seasons.

However, in the years since Star Trek, Wheaton has managed to mostly put acting and Wesley Crusher behind him and reinvent himself as a writer through his website, his work in various magazines and other publications, writing gigs on several comic books and work on manga titles from publishers such as TokyoPop.

Wheaton has also managed to launch a very successful publishing company, and is still a fan favorite at conventions and appearances all over the country. I caught up with the multi-talented Wheaton recently at a non-trendy eatery in Pasadena, CA, to talk comics, his career and his love of writing.

Megan Fox was all pouts as she attended the Fox All-Star party at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, CA yesterday.
Meanwhile, the sexy and svelte actress had to reportedly gain a whopping 10 lbs for the second Transformers movie. No easy feat for a diminutive starlet like Miss Fox.

“I should have toned up for Transformers, but I’m really lazy, she says. “I had to put on weight. I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny (for a role in Jennifer’s Body), but I was told I had to put on size for Transformers because Michael [Bay, the director] doesn’t like skinny girls.”

So, how did she lose the weight? And what did she do to gain it back? “I just stopped eating,” she said. “I don’t eat very healthy anyway — I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”

No word on whether Megan is showing any signs of early diabetes…yet.

Danny Bonaduce Blogs



12-step blogging program


As you can see I have only recently learned to blog but it is totally fun. Unfortunately, it has already gotten me in trouble. Amy just made me a delicious dinner and served it to me at the dining room table. Unfortunately, I failed to look up and notice that she was stark naked. She told me I had my priorities all mixed up. I told her to relax, that I would blog her later.

I am only kidding, but this blogging really is fun. Let's Blog, Blog ,Blog until daddy takes the t-bird away.


A Day in the life.

Aside from the fact that I thought my one hour show totally kicked ass, today hurt from head to toe. From 7 to 8 a.m. I kicked and punched and punched and kicked and wrestled just in time to get home, dry off and attend a meeting, get back on my motorcycle, videotape something for the radio station on the roof of my home, dry off again on my motorcycle, and then go do the radio show. The cool thing is I would go to that every single day just to have as much fun as I do during that one hour of good radio. A lot of people are trying to offer me jobs although they can't yet because I'm under contract to KLSX and to be honest with you, as long as they can find me a shift I think KLSX is the station for me. Besides, they even painted my giant face on the front of a bus today. Either that's a good sign or they plan to run me over. Love, Danny.

Pop Quiz: Feist


Aidin Vaziri

Sunday, July 13, 2008

Leslie Feist has been on tour for a very, very long time. But thanks to a steady stream of love from Apple, Starbucks, Verizon, Stephen Colbert and, well, fans of romantically minded indie pop served with a perfectly cut fringe, her most recent album, "The Reminder," continues to pull people out of their homes and into enormous venues more than a year after it was released. The 32-year-old Calgary native plays Saturday at Berkeley's Greek Theatre. We caught up with her on the phone from Montreal just before her final round of touring.

Q: Do you love being on the road more than you love anything else?

A: Well, no. But I'm almost done. I'm shutting it down in November. By the time I stop, it will have been six years. They call it the seven-year itch, but six years is enough for me. I'm done.

Q: Have you been paying rent on various apartments this whole time?

A: Well, I still have a place in Paris and I actually ended up getting a place in the woods in Canada. So, I have a home.

Q: You might have a home, but what you really need is a good accountant who tells you to wait until you get off the road before buying a place on a Canadian nature reserve, especially in this terrible market.

A: I guess so. Are you available?

Q: These are the things that keep me up at night: "Is Feist maximizing her assets?"

A: Maybe you can write some songs for me, too.

Q: What else have you blown your money on?

A: Well, my big splurge was an electric lawnmower recently. I can't buy an electric car, but I can buy an electric lawnmower. Not that I'm even going to mow because I basically live in a meadow.

Q: That's the worst thing you can possibly buy, especially if you decide to take it to Paris.

A: Exactly. There's nothing to mow in Paris. Everything is so clipped and trimmed. I'm not going back there for a little while, though. I'm going to sack out in Canada right before I go to the Arctic. And then I'm signing off. I don't plan to purchase anything lavish after that.

Watch The Guild & Imaginary Bitches

Inspired by this post I figured to share with my fellow ONTD'ers the best web series on the net really.

The Guild (go watch at http://www.youtube.com/user/watchtheguild/ ) is the brianchild of Felicia Day, one of the featured actors in Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long

According to the website:
The Guild is an independent sitcom webisode about a group of online gamers. It is written for gamers, about gamers by a gamer. Episodes vary from 3-6 minutes in length, and follow the Guild members’ lives online and offline. “The Guild” is the winner of the YouTube and Yahoo 2007 Video Awards for Best Web Series, as well as recipient of the SXSW/On Networks 2007 Greenlight Award for Best Series.


And according to the Los Angeles Times:
The true standout in this group is Felicia Day's "The Guild," perhaps the smartest (and definitely the funniest) webisodic series of the year. See my fawning post (and some of the funny comments) here. "The Guild" revolves around a group of obsessive online video-game players who know each other through their characters, but not in real life. Even for the non-gamers among us (you dwindling demographic, you!), the tension between virtual relationships and real ones grows daily stronger, and "The Guild" is the first show to pick up on that theme. So congratulations to the First Annual Web Scout Best of the YouTube Video Awards Award Winner, "The Guild"!

Imaginary Bitches (watch at http://www.youtube.com/user/imaginarybitches ) is created by Andrew Miller and stars Eden Riegel from All My Children.

Accroding to its IMDb:
Imaginary Bitches is a web series about a single girl who deals with the lonely reality that all her friends are in serious relationships by making up imaginary friends...who turn out to be total bitches.

File this under: Shit you should only wear to a Gay Pride Parade.

I think it's sort of sweet that Joey Lawrence and his wife share clothes. It frees up closet space. His wife should be jealous, because homegirl is working the shit out of that outfit.

I'm not going to lie. I think I have those same jeans but I'm gayer than Larry Craig's tap dancing routine, so at least I have an excuse.,

That being said, I'd definitely bump no-no holes with Joey Lawrence.

From Superficial:

Every once in a while, it's nice to see a celeb not act like a complete douche bandit. In this case, Batman himself Christian Bale, who took the time to sign a shitload of autographs for fans that approached him and his wife in Manhattan. Which is pretty badass compared to other superhero actors like, say Tobey Maguire, who'd probably just punch you in the kidney then call Spider-man a fag.


From me: It almost feels unfair, doesn't it? Someone that hot should be forced, by law, to copulate with the masses. I shouldn't have to look at him and just touch myself.

Gemini Division

And speaking of web series...



Brent Friedman of Electric Farm Entertainment told SCI FI Wire that Electric Farm's new online series Gemini Division is set "two minutes in the future" in a world where biotechnology is starting to get out of control.

Starring Rosario Dawson, Gemini Division consists of 50 three- to four-minute episodes that will begin streaming on NBC.com and SCIFI.COM in August.

Dawson plays New York vice cop Anna Diaz, who witnesses the brutal murder of her fiance, Nick (Justin Hartley), only to discover he wasn't a human being at all but an artificial lifeform called a "simulant." She soon crosses paths with the title Gemini Division, a secret government organization tracking a group of simulants who have gone rogue and are hiding among the human population.

"They're intrigued by her because she's the first [human] they're aware of that actually had a relationship with one of them," Friedman said. "And so there's kind of an unholy alliance made where she decides to join them to get answers to what the hell is going on."

Friedman explained that the simulants were the product of a lengthy research program that was eventually appropriated by the military. The military then made other modifications to turn them into artificial soldiers. They became "a stopgap to get them out of the Iraq crisis," Friedman said. "But one platoon of them went AWOL. They spread out all over the planet, and, unbeknownst to the general public who has no idea that this experiment ever took place, they have assimilated with us and are in the process of staging a large terror plot. Or so we're led to believe."

One of the military modifications was a device called an experience core, installed in the simulants' brains, which records everything the simulant experiences. The idea was to download periodically all of the data to get a "complete, full three-dimensional composite of Iraq," Friedman. But now that the simulants have gone rogue, the Gemini Division wants very badly to recover their cores intact in order to learn what they've been up to.

Anna also goes in search of Nick's core, hoping to learn once and for all whether their relationship was real or whether, as her superiors keep insisting, Nick was simply manipulating her. "The holy grail of her quest is to find his core and see what was inside his mind," Friedman said. "What he was thinking and feeling and seeing vis-a-vis her?"

Gemini Division is set to begin its online run daily beginning Aug. 18

Here is one of the teaser trailers:

With everyone caught up in the excitement of American Idol, some might forget that before Fox’s reality competition, there was Making the Band. Even before Diddy got involved, the focus of the show was always on creating superstar groups and not individual artists. But in the most recent competition, Donnie Klang broke the mold by becoming the show’s first solo project.

Always looking for the next big thing, Diddy saw that even though Donnie wasn’t right for the group he formed that year, he couldn’t let all of those screaming girls go to waste. Donnie was given a contract on Bad Boy and sent to Florida with Danity Kane and Day 26 to work on his album and grow as an artist.

Like Idol, not every artist who came up through Making the Band went on to much success (Dylan, anyone?) and at first, it seemed like Donnie was off to a shaky start. While recording, he had trouble getting the attention he needed in a house with ten other singers. In addition, it took some time for Donnie to figure out just what he wanted to show us. He missed the boat and wasn’t able to get his album out this Spring with the others. But now, he’s ready to take advantage of the extra time and come back to prove that Diddy chose him for a reason.

Donnie has spent his whole life learning to sing, dance, act and answer awkward interview questions about his personal life, so he’s not about to let all that training go unused. We talk to Donnie as he prepares to release his album Just a Rolling Stone on August 19th, hit the road for the Making the Band Tour, and film his last season of the current class of the show.

Katy Perry: I Want to Kiss Miley Cyrus

Katy Perry sings the summer's sexiest song "I Kissed a Girl."

So who's her dream same sex smooch?

"Miley Cyrus!" she says in the latest issue of Steppin' Out magazine. "She's the lucky girl. It's cool to hear through the grapevine that Miley Cyrus has my song as her ring tone."

Perry, 23, will attend August's Teen Choice Awards, which Cyrus, 15, is hosting.

"Maybe we'll have another Britney-Madonna moment on stage," Perry joked. "How hilarious would that be? Although I don't think it would help her career. However, it would definitely help mine!"

Perry — who recently defended beau, Gym Class Heroes singer Travis McCoy, after he was arrested for assault — also cleared up rumors about her promise ring.

"I'm definitely not a virgin!" she said. "[People] think the promise ring means no sex! No, the promise ring is just a promise that he'll get me another ring. A better ring!

"Seriously, it's not one of those 'no sex' promise rings," she added. "That kind of went out the window when I was 17 years old."

Jarvis Cocker 2nd Solo Album stuff

Jarvis Cocker gets ready to 'rock' on second solo album


Pulp man has been writing with his band this time

jarvis cocker (piss!)


Jarvis Cocker has revealed that his second solo album will be much heavier than his debut, 2006's 'Jarvis'.

The former Pulp frontman also explained that discovering that his backing band "could rock" led to a more democratic writing process.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, Cocker said: "What I've tried to do with the new stuff, rather than me just sit there and wait for inspiration to come at some point – which takes ages – instead we've written stuff together. And it's a bit louder.

"That really made me think. I'd never really had that before. Pulp could be loud, but we didn't really rock…. Well, maybe occasionally."

Cocker suggested that his new-found desire to rock could have come from his age, saying: "It's probably something to do with some kind of mid-life crisis as well, y'know? Rock while to still have the ability to do it, before your bits start falling off."

The singer is expected to hit the studio this year, but claimed his album will likely not be released until 2009.

Aubrey O'Day: "I Love to Stand Out"

If you think Aubrey O'Day has a bad rap, think again. The singer is proud of her reputation as the bad girl of music group Danity Kane and even has a single featuring Missy Elliot called "Bad Girl" coming out soon.

So when OK! caught up with O'Day at the Vitamin Water Homers in the Hudson Event, she was happy to set the record straight.

"I don’t know, I think every woman has every side of them you know?" O'Day told OK!. "I think every girl in our group is the bad girl and the nice girl and funny."

Aubrey has a busy summer ahead of her, to say the least. She is starring in Hairspray on Broadway as Amber, and is releasing a clothing line called Heart on My Sleeve Shop.com.


"I’m sure there will be a tour or something coming up for Danity Kane," she adds in at the last minute.


When asked about her unique sense of style, O'Day agrees wholeheartedly.

"I love to stand out, I love to be the center of attention," she says. "I love to steal all the attention in the room and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think it's a fabulous thing to be if you're comfortable, so I look for clothes to do that."

She adds, "I just look for anything that’s bright, that stands out. I’m fun, I take chances, I think outside the box. I don’t like to have anything regular or anything everyone else does, so you’ll never see me in anything like that."

Ashley Tisdale's Not-So-Secret Crush

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ask High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale who she's got on the brain and she answers without hestiation: "It's my dream to work with Shia Labeouf," she says. "I just think he's an amazing actor. I love his comedy and his drama work."

Tisdale acts more like a teen with a crush than one of young Hollywood's biggest stars. She's was featured on Maxim's Hot 1oo List and just recently had a doll made in her likeness, something she says was a bit strange.

"It's definitely weird seeing yourself as a Barbie," she tells AOL.com. "But they're cute, and I was a big Barbie fan growing up."

Tisdale's fame has risen considerably with the unstoppable success of High School Musical. Now back with its third installment, HSM3, the actress is under more scrutiny than celebs twice her age.

"I live my life the way I would normally," she says. "When I'm at home, I like to be with my family and my friends. The whole paparazzi thing gets annoying at times. They always want to feed on the negatives, and twist things. But over the years, I've gotten a really thick skin. I try not to pay much attention to it."

So how has HSM3 affected the franchise?

"The musical numbers are even bigger, and everything is amazing and beautiful," Tisdale reveals. "When we were doing the first movie, the set had this little glitter ladder. And then by the second one, we stepped it up with that cool pink baby grand piano. The set for the third one is even more extravagant."

Another new thing this time around is a new, soon-to-premiere High School Musical reality competition hosted by Nick Lachey.

"Nick Lachey was actually filming some of the show in Utah when we were there filming 'HSM 3.' ", Ashley says. "I'm excited to see it. I think it's going to be really cool. Although I think that's kind of a scary thing, being on a reality show. You just open yourself up for the world to see."

Audrina Did NOT Move Out, Says Lauren

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Are Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge on the outs — again?

Just when it seemed that the two had put aside their rumored roommate drama, Internet reports began swirling that Patridge had moved out of the L.A. home they share with Lo Bosworth.

But Conrad insists there’s no domestic drama.

“It’s actually really funny,” she tells PEOPLE. “We were having an at-home shoot … so I think the neighbor saw clothes being moved in and out. And we just had a couch delivered that day and so they saw the moving van.”

In fact, when the two roomies met up later in the day, Conrad says Patridge laughed off the rumors, saying, “Did you know I moved out? Just thought I’d let you know!”

The MTV star, who’s in New York showing the latest designs from her clothing line, claims there are no tensions back home. In fact, she says, “everything is perfect.”

And when they’re not working on individual projects or hitting L.A.’s hottest clubs, the roommates are happy to be homebodies.

“We’re all so busy,” she admits. “But during the day, if we have breaks, we like to chill and eat lunch by the pool.”

Bindi Irwin: “I Don’t Think Of Myself As Being Famous”



Australian Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, talked to The Courier Mail about her life, her four-year-old brother and her upcoming tenth birthday.
On being famous: “I don’t think of myself as being famous,” she said, “I just feel I’m a teacher who is teaching wildlife conservation. Being well known is a way of getting the conservation message out, which is really nice.”
On her little brother Bob: “Robert has a great approach to life,” she said, “He lives one day at a time and doesn’t worry about what will happen in the future. He just likes to play with his chickens and revels in the moment which is happening . . . which is a good way to be.”
On her tenth birthday: “I’m very excited,” she said, “Our tradition is that birthdays are not just for yourself but for sharing. Every birthday is very exciting - you wake up in the morning so excited because everyone is coming. It’s so exciting I can’t wait. Double digits means double the fun which is so exciting.”
On her Emmy win: “My next goal will be the Grammies - no, just joking. It was such an honour to have the Emmy given to me - it’s the most amazing thing ever and I can’t believe it. I was in tears basically and I took it to bed with me but it had really sharp wings.”

David Tennant talks Hamlet

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How do you feel about coming back to the RSC to play the title role in Hamlet and Berowne in Love's Labour's Lost?

It feels very familiar. Theatre is what I've done more of than anything else. Admittedly I've been on sabbatical to 'television-land' for the past few years which I've probably ended up better known for. But this feels like the day job. It's what I do. So it's great to be back and working with Greg. It's an incredibly friendly company which is a great relief. Most of the company have already done A Midsummer Night's Dream so they would have been perfectly within their rights to be a little bit sniffy about a new boy coming in to do the next show, but they've been very welcoming and enthusiastic. There's a great feeling about the company and a real sense of something new and exciting about the RSC at the moment.

Amy Winehouse is not happy about being immortalised as a waxwork model at London’s Madame Tussauds Museum.

The beehived singer admits she was unavailable for a sitting for the statue, so the museum has crafted her likeness from photographs.

She tells New!: "I thought you had to be dead almost before they made a wax of you."

V #54 July/August 2008: Gisele Bundchen by Mario Testino



Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen is featured in the Fall 2008 issue of V Magazine, as captured by renowned photographer Mario Testino. (She shot this cover back in April.)

In her interview, Gisele, who turns 28 on Sunday, speaks frankly about her decade-long modeling career, as well as her outlook on fashion, the paparazzi and the environment. Check it out:

On her skin-baring images: “Only Mario [Testino] could make me take these pictures…. People are going to say my butt is showing too much in these but this is V Magazine! If you’re going to do something like that, you do it for V.”

On 15-year-old Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair wearing just a sheet and being on every news show: Can you believe this is news? It’s ridiculous. And the politicians aren’t going to create any laws about this [kind of media saturation]. They’re very happy with it. They can go around doing what they want and no one cares because we’re more concerned about some 15-year-old girl holding a sheet in a picture. No one cares about what [the politicians are] screwing up, or how much money is being lost.

On what she’s more compassionate about: “The destruction of our planet.”

On her role in the fashion world: “I work in fashion but I’m not really a fashion person. I don’t follow trends. I couldn’t tell you which designer made that shoe or that bag. I like jeans.”

Jessica Alba turns into Satan without food

New mum Jessica Alba is so much in love with food post pregnancy that she turns into ‘Satan’ if she doesn''t get to eat something.

The Hollywood actress recently gave birth to her first child, daughter Honor Marie Warren and said that she needs all the energy she can get now that she's a mum.

Thus, according to reports from Showbizspy. com, Alba has resorted to gorging on everything she can lay her hands on.

"I used to be a just a coffee for breakfast, yogurt for lunch girl,” The Daily Telegraph quoted her, as saying.

She added: "Now I have to have something every couple of hours. I turn into Satan if I don't eat."

The Spice Girls have been asked to perform on Prince Charles' 60th birthday.

ITV is organising a show for the Prince, who will be celebrating his birthday on 14 November.

Prince Charles is more than happy to comply with these plans for his big day, and has indicated that he would like Kylie Minogue, Tom Jones and Status Quo to perform.

He has more notably expressed the desire that the Spice Girls reunite and perform for him. Prince Charles has a long history with the girl band, as Geri Halliwell performed for his 50th birthday.

An ITV source told the Daily Express: "Prince Charles' 60th is going to be a huge party.

"It will be done with all the style expected for a royal occasion, but with a certain sense of humour.

"We're certainly hoping to get the Spice Girls back together. It's hoped they will do it because it will be a lot of fun. Other acts Charles likes include Status Quo, Tom Jones and even Kylie so we're trying to get them to sign up.

"We're going to pull out all the stops to make it a right royal and very British extravaganza."

David Archuleta does the weather



They moved together in the stillness of the night, soft moans and the low sound of splashing water the only sounds. They kissed and tasted each other, tongues running along wet collarbones, lips sliding along throbbing pulsepoints underneath heated skin as they thrusted into the tight circles of each other’s hands.

“God, Archie. I… can’t…” Cook couldn’t finish the thought as Archie increased the speed of his hand.

The younger David cried out, hips bucking against his lover’s hand. Water sloshed around their shoulders as Archie bobbed up and down, pleasure building deep in the core of his body, threatening to burst out in spasms of ecstasy.

“So good…” he whimpered into Cook’s ear. “I’m… oh god, David! I’m…”

And then Archie’s climax gripped him completely, and he gave himself over to bliss, crying out in ecstasy.

Slumping forward to rest his forehead against David’s shoulder, Archie slid his hand to the base of Cook’s prick before slipping it up to the tip in a firm, fast stroke. And then Cook was clutching at Archie’s shoulders with callused fingers as he pumped his release into his lover’s hand.

“God,” Cook breathed against Archie’s shoulder. “That was… intense.”

Lindsay Lohan gets served..



Lindsay Lohan was served with legal papers today on the set of her new movie -- but the whole thing ain't kosher.

A source close to Lindsay tells TMZ it was really shady. We're told the process server faked being a paparazzo and threw the papers at her, and that ain't no way to serve a lady. One of Lindsay's rep tells us the service was not legal.

The case in question involves Samantha Ronson and the law firm that repped her in a defamation case against Perez Hilton. She claims the firm overcharged her and screwed up her case.

How does Lindsay factor in? Sam says the defamation involves what didn't happen in Lindsay's infamous car crash in May 2007.

Also, to numbereleven, your question about what movies to watch to get into 'Bollywood'/Indian movies......I agree with all the recommendations yesterday: Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Om Shanti Om (completely agree with this one!!), Devdas, Hum Tum, Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Dil To Pagal Hai, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and Saathiya. I'd also add Rang De Basanti and Kal Ho Naa Ho.

And to be honest, it is best to start with something fun and more recent. I'd recommend Love Story 2050 (cute and futuristic) and Jaane Tu ... Ya Jaane Na (younger movie). And next month, watch Singh is Kinng....SNOOP DOGG IS ON THE MOVIE'S SOUNDTRACK!!.

Actress Cassandra Peterson was working in a nude revue in Las Vegas when she fell for the well-endowed It's Not Unusual singer.

Peterson admits Jones was a rough lover and her first-time sexual encounter with the womanizing Welshman left her needing medical care.

She tells the new issue of Blender magazine, "Tom seemed gentlemanly and nice, so when he was jumping on me... I thought, 'Well, if I'm ever gonna do this, it might as well be with Tom Jones.'

"It was painful and horrible."

Peterson tells Blender she needed stitches after the sex session was over
, but the worst pain was yet to come.

She adds, "I thought for sure we were gonna run away together and get married. I went backstage to see him the next night, but he was with his two background singers... and was all over them. I was disgusted."

Blake Lively has said she thinks it’s weird that people compare her to Paris Hilton.

The Gossip Girl actress told Seventeen recently that the comparison is one of the weirdest things she’s heard said about herself since becoming famous - because she’s nothing at all like the socialite: “Since I have a dog and blond hair, that must mean we’re alike. It’s a dumb thing to say. I don’t think that makes us similar.

“I don’t know her, but I don’t like being compared to anyone by somebody who doesn’t know me. I’m my own person. I don’t go to clubs, I don’t party, I don’t dance on tables and I don’t like sex tapes.”

john legend talks about his new single and upcoming album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

John Legend has been making a name for himself with his sultry vocals and excellent songwriting. Hot off the heels of Once Again, Legend has returned to the lab for a new album - tentatively titled Evolver. But this time John Legend insists that the album will have a new sound. The proof may be in the pudding with the lead single that features Andre 3000 titled "Green Light."

“We liked the idea and sent it over to Andre because we thought he would be perfect for it. We felt it needed his flavor. He rhymed on it and we felt like it was the right song to go with first. So we’ll be shooting the video in a couple of weeks,” Legend said to HipHopDX recently.

The song is considerably more upbeat than the usual John Legend outing. But this is something that he said would be prevalent throughout his new album.

"It's going to be a surprise for a lot of John Legend fans, because it is a lot more upbeat than John is — than people think John is," Andre stated in a previous interview with MTV. "I was actually happy to hear it. This is a cool John Legend song."

So the question is whether or not this new direction was Legend's idea or his label.
“I’m just making music,” Legend says. “My record company doesn’t call me saying ‘John we need you to do this.’ I just go out there and try to make records that I would love and I think the audience will love.”

Look for the video to "Green Light" coming soon and Evolver this fall.

Beatles producer Martin honored in Los Angeles; Lennon, Harrison widows among attendees

Sir George Martin, the classically trained producer who helmed the Beatles recordings from their mop-top phase through their late musical masterworks, was honored Saturday night in Los Angeles.Martin, 82, received a career award from The Recording Academy's Grammy Foundation, which provides education programs for future music professionals and works to preserve musical history.

Martin is the most successful record producer of all time, according to the academy, with more than 50 chart-topping hits and one-billion units sold. He also holds the record for the longest run of No. 1 pop-chart hits in history, spanning 36 years.

Martin, who has said he is hard of hearing, sprinted by reporters on the event's arrivals line. But son Giles Martin spoke on behalf of his father, with whom he remixed original recordings to create the soundtrack for "Love," the popular Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas production inspired by The Beatles' music.

Receiving the Recording Academy tribute "is a huge honor for him," Giles Martin told AP Television. "But he always said, 'They give me an honor for still being alive.' You know, because he's English, and we're very self-deprecating. But it's a huge honor for him. And his life has been the music industry."

Event attendees included John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, who recalled her first time meeting Martin.

"I was very surprised," Ono said. "He was obviously from a classical background. And he had that sort of demeanor — of a person who was a very sophisticated gentleman, an English gentleman."

George Harrison's widow Olivia Harrison said it took a little time for her late husband to warm up to Martin, who first met in 1962.

"Well, I think, they were so young," she said. "And George, he always said that he was always like the adult in the room. And, you know, you look now, and there wasn't that much age difference. But, you know, they were just four scruffy guys. But he enabled them to manifest their music for what they heard in their heads."

And, clearly, John, Paul, George and Ringo remain important to Martin, who spent the bulk of his award-acceptance speech talking about The Fab Four.

"Yoko and Olivia are here tonight," Martin noted. "Paul and Ringo can't be here, because they're doing their own tour. They're workaholics. I can't understand why, but they are. I've been so lucky to work with so many wonderful people, and great talent all my life. ... I miss a lot of people. I miss so many people who have died on me. God knows I'm old enough. But younger people have left the scene, and I miss them, as you do, great people. John and George particularly."

The event also included a concert saluting Martin and the songs he helped make famous, with guest performers including songwriter Burt Bacharach, guitarist Jeff Beck and singer Tom Jones.

Christopher Nolan talks about how The Joker smells, about Heath, etc.

With 'The Dark Knight,' Christopher Nolan tried for the near-impossible: a bigger, better sequel.

By Devin Gordon | NEWSWEEK
Jul 21, 2008 Issue

Despite the smothering 90-degree heat and the brilliant afternoon sun, despite being interviewed on his own back porch in West Hollywood, just a few feet from the giant trampoline he bought for his four young children, Christopher Nolan, the director of "Batman Begins" and its forthcoming sequel "The Dark Knight," is wearing the same thing he always wears: a trim black suit. It's his uniform. His Batsuit, if you will. He's got 10 more just like it. Nolan is a meticulous guy, and he likes knowing where all his stuff is, including the two passports he habitually keeps in his inside coat pocket, just in case. His movies, especially his latest, match the man: thoughtful and precise, with a coiled, relentless intensity. "The Dark Knight" finds Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) coping with the consequences of his bid to obliterate crime in Gotham. The criminals have stepped up their game as well, led by that heckling hell-raiser the Joker, a psychopath who forces his victims to make unimaginable choices. The Joker, of course, is played by Heath Ledger, whose sudden death in January stunned Hollywood and has only ratcheted up interest in what was already one of the most anticipated performances—and films—of the summer. Nolan wrote a eulogy for the actor in NEWSWEEK that month, and he revisited the subject, along with many others, during a 90-minute conversation. Excerpts:

GORDON: This is a very grim movie.
NOLAN: Yeah, it is grim. But Batman is a grim character. It's a grim world. And that's part of the fun of it—it's operatic. It's exciting. But it's definitely grim.

It's also something of a grim time in our country, which is why so many themes in this movie feel relevant. There's a line about how heroes always become villains if they stick around long enough. The idea is that, eventually, we turn on our heroes.
Yeah, we do. There are all kinds of famous examples. We talk about Caesar in the movie. But also Winston Churchill, who was thrown out of office after World War II. We try to portray Batman as a real person, and if a heroic figure is a real person—someone who the entire population of a city puts their hopes and dreams onto—that hero will inevitably disappoint in some way. We will turn on them.

You also seem to be commenting on the impossibility of heroism in a brutal world, because any hero will inevitably be faced with unthinkable choices, and simply by choosing, the hero becomes a monster to many.
The Joker gets pleasure from taking somebody's rule set—their ethics, their morals—and turning them against each other. Paradox is the way you do that. Giving people impossible choices. What Batman is doing is heroic, but it can be seen in another way: as vigilantism, as a dark force outside the law. That's a very, very dangerous road to go down. He's always riding a knife edge in moral terms.

Er, RotK was a good third film. PLEASE make a third one, Nolan, PLEASE; we need more Two-Face. I also like the fact that Nolan's being interviewed by someone named GORDON.

"They are grown men playing a little boy's sport," Alyssa exclaimed, "That makes them childish."
 
In the past, Alyssa has been involved with Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny, San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito, New York Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano and Atlanta Braves star Tom Glavine, Alyssa says she going to date more mature men,  like her current mystery beau, known only as "David".
 
The actress, who has designed a range of MLB-approved sportswear and has her own baseball blog, admits she's such a huge fan of the sport, she dreams up game scenarios when she's trying to get to sleep.

She adds, "My stress reliever is usually baseball. In fact, sometimes when I can't sleep - because my mind is racing - I close my eyes and think about being at the stadium. I create game-winning situations.

"I think of the sound of the bat cracking. And you know what? It usually works."

In order to get over her addiction to baseball players, Alyssa has a great week ahead of her. She's in New York for the MLB All Star Game at Yankee Stadium.  Uh oh. Maybe she's not so serious about giving up on baseball players after all.

Ryan Tedder Not Working With The David's



Those rumors of collaborations between OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and David Cook and David Archuleta? Not gonna happen. Tedder recently told ABC News Radio that the rumors are running rampant, but they’re just not true:

“No, there are all these rumors swirling about me, and, us and American Idols. And it even says on Wikipedia that I’m working with David Cook and Archuleta. I have not worked with either of them, and I don’t have either of them on the schedule.”


Scratch Ryan Tedder off the list, peeps.

The band OneRepublic released “Apologize”, one of this year’s huge hits. Tedder co-wrote the Leona Lewis mega-hit “Bleeding Love” with Jesse McCartney (who will soon go out on tour with Jordin Sparks–ahh the connections!). He also collaborated with Blake Lewis on several cuts from his debut album Audio Day Dream, including the ill-fated single, “Break Anotha”.

FILM, CLOTHES, M.I.A.

M.I.A. Hints at Clothing Line With Weird Video





Make your way to M.I.A.'s webpage, and you'll be greeted by a brightly colored, somewhat crudely constructed video titled "Real Pirates of the Caribbean". The clip, prefaced by the words "Film and Clothes by M.I.A.," lackadaisically follows a young, very blonde gentleman (named Okley Leslie), clad in Day-Glo garb in tune with M.I.A.'s own signature style, without a whole lot in the way of context. Well, except this: the entire video is surrounded by giant pointy letters reading, "WEBSTORE COMING SOON."

The video's not exactly must see TV, but it is nevertheless the first thing we've heard from M.I.A. since her announcement at Bonnaroo that her set there was in fact her "last gig ever". And, though it's a little hard to tell what to make of this exactly-- other than "this is a thing that brings pain to my eyes," I suppose-- one naturally assumes this is the first glimpse of the clothing line M.I.A. is rumored to be working up presently.

There's some mention on a page dedicated specifically to Leslie about a "limited run", which, too, leads one to believe the clothing in the video may well only be around for a short while.

M.I.A.'s label, Interscope, has yet to respond to our inquiries. In the meantime, we need to look away from the computer screen for a few minutes.

No Excuses



Kim Kardashian's little sister Khloe may be headed for jail, but she has no one to blame but herself, mom Kris Jenner says.


"There's lots of things I could be sitting here saying, and excuses for my daughter, but there isn't one," Jenner tells Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.

"To me, she's still 15," she adds. "At this point, I'm up against a wall. What am I going to do? Holler at her? Scream at her? I've done all that."

Khloe, 24, was sentenced to up to 30 days in
Los Angeles County jail for violating probation following a DUI arrest. She admitted to failing to complete roadside cleanup duty and not enrolling in an alcohol education class, prosecutors say.

But mom Kris, 52, says two good things have come from it all. One, youngest sisters Kendall, 22, and Kylie Jenner, 10, now look askance at drinking, much less drinking and driving. And two, critics of Keeping Up With the Kardashians finally have proof the show isn't staged.

Meanwhile, big sister Kim, 27, writes on her blog that Khloe is "ready and willing to serve out her sentence."

"I urge people to learn from the mistakes of others," writes Kim. "Please drink responsibly and it's never acceptable to drink and drive!"

Avril Lavigne Sex Tape Video?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Is Avril Lavigne involved in a sex tape scandal? If so, she'll join Shakira as the latest stars to have a rumored raunch video floating around.

Collapse )

An extremely brief sex tape clip purporting to be Avril Lavigne, with her new single 'Don't Tell Me' playing in the background, has been posted to the internet.

It is mostly available via bit torrent, although we have found an mpg here. And while it could be Avril, it's probably not, there is no real way to tell.

The shot is from the back, as you can see in these screen shots above, the girl is of the same frame and build as Avril but no definitive view is available.

Mammia Mia Makes Money Money Money


Mamma Mia is released in the USA on Friday, July 18 and the movie will most likely get pummeled by The Dark Knight but the movie has been a huge success overseas.

Mamma Mia which stars Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried has already made £7.6 million, which makes it Streeps biggest ever opening in the UK.

The movie tells the story of 18 year old Sophie (Seyfried), who is about to get married but there is only one problem, she doesn’t know who her father is. Her mother (Streep) tels her it could be any one of 3 guys, so she invites all 3 guys to the wedding, all the while featuring Abba songs.

The movie has helped make Abba become back in the charts again, HMV spokesperson Gennaro Castaldo said: “Abba are one of HMV’s consistent best-selling artists, up there with the likes of the Beatles and Elvis, and it doesn’t take much to spark a bit of an Abba revival - let’s face it, most of us would pick them as our ‘guilty pleasure’. Right now, their sales are rocketing again thanks to the huge exposure being given to their music by the success of the Mamma Mia film. Amazingly, Abba Gold is back in our top 10, while the cast recording soundtrack to Mamma Mia itself could easily end up as our biggest-selling album this week.”

He then continued on to say, “Further evidence of the band’s enduring appeal comes in the form of the singles charts, which show the likes of Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Mamma Mia all threatening to re-enter the official UK top 100 on the strength of downloads alone.”

The world according to Ringo Starr

Former Beatle Ringo Starr celebrated his 68th birthday this summer, but he looks and sounds the same as he did a decade ago.

The drummer-singer says he sees no end in sight for his music career, as fans of all ages continue to flock to his biannual outings with the ever-evolving All-Starr Band.

Starr’s latest CD, "Liverpool 8," has been hailed as one of his strongest in years.

Friends giving Starr a little help on his current tour include fellow classic rockers Billy Squier, Edgar Winter, Gary Wright, Colin Hay of Men At Work and Hamish Stuart of the Average White Band.

Each All-Starr plays a personal hit or two and backs Starr on such classics as "Yellow Submarine," "It Don’t Come Easy," "Act Naturally" and "Photograph."

Starr talks about staying young, his global promotion of "peace and love," managing the Beatles’ legacy and his relationship with Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono.

Menudo Member Kicked Off Delta Flight




 Menudo band member Carlos Olivero was escorted by security off a Delta flight in Atlanta after refusing to put away his iPod, PEOPLE has learned.

The 18-year-old heartthrob, his mother, and his bandmates were on flight 4483 on July 4 as it prepared to leave for Knoxville, Tenn., when Olivero was told to leave the plane, a source says.

"A flight attendant accused Carlos of having an attitude after she asked him to turn off his iPod in preparation for takeoff," the source says. "Carlos complied and turned his iPod off, but the flight attendant then demanded he stow it. Carlos showed her again that the iPod was turned off, but he refused to stow it."

A Delta airlines security team was summoned and escorted him and his mother off the plane, the source says. His bandmates, the Menudo tech crew and management also left the plane, the source says.

The five-member group boarded another flight, but without their tech crew since there weren't enough seats. After they arrived in Knoxville for the Star 102.1 FM Festival, they performed songs from their upcoming album out Sept. 30, including the hit "Lost," in front of 75,000 fans, but the group improvised.

"When they finally took to the stage in Knoxville, they realized some of their borrowed tech equipment didn't operate properly, so they ended up performing a cappella midway through the set."

A rep for Menudo tells PEOPLE, "We can confirm there was an incident on the Delta flight. The members of Menudo are on a plane nearly every day flying from one concert appearance to another so this took us totally by surprise. We've never had a problem before."

A Delta rep wasn't immediately available for comment.

Pat O'Brien is getting married!!

 

After five years together, The Insider host Pat O'Brien and his girlfriend Betsy Stephens plan to marry.

"It's probably going to be next fall," O'Brien, with Stephens at his side, told PEOPLE at A-Rod's All-Star party at New York City's 40/40 Monday. "We're in love and in no big hurry. We don't know if it will take place – in Jamaica, New York, or Nantucket."

"I think we're going to sneak off and do something really romantic," said Stephens, who recalled first meeting O'Brien at Los Angeles's Staples Center. "It was a basketball event."

Their first date was the Emmy Awards ceremony, and she especially recalls how good he looked in his tuxedo afterwards.

"He's a smart, interesting man, poetic," said Stephens, who has two young daughters and whose company, B ... for Betsy, specializes in handmade accessories and apparel. "He's wonderful."

O'Brien, 60, has also been through a lot, including two stints in rehab. Overcoming the ordeals, O'Brien and Stephens claim that their relationship remains strong.

Sick Fan and Friend of Pete Doherty Dies...Pete Plays At His Wake



The Babyshambles singer and ex-boyfriend of Kate Moss formed a special bond with Daniel Squires after meeting him last year.

Daniel died in his mother Becky's arms on July 4 after losing his battle with bone cancer.

Doherty, 28, attended the wake at the Golden Lion pub in Jarrow, South Tyneside, and spent an hour with the family. He took to the stage with his guitar, teaming up with one of Daniel's friends for an emotional tribute following the funeral at South Shields Crematorium.

Pub manager Lynette Gale said: "He was here for around an hour and a half. It went very well, there were a lot of people here. He was on the stage at the back of the pub and everyone was crowding around him.

Shannon Elizabeth will star in Night of the Demons remake



Sizzling Night of the Demons Casting News!

Diora Baird, Shannon Elizabeth and Monica Keena (pictured below) have joined the cast of Night of the Demons, director Adam Gierasch's remake of the 1988 flick by Kevin Tenney. (Holy smokes, right?!) Elizabeth is set to play Angela - previously essayed by actress Amelia Kinkade in the original - a possessed party hostess who makes things a living hell for her friends.

This trio comes to the project equipped with a fair collective share of horror creds. Baird previously starred in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and next appears in Stan Helsing; Keena wedged herself into a battle between to terror titans in Freddy vs. Jason; and you've seen Elizabeth in Thirteen Ghosts and Cursed

Night of the Demons begins shooting mid-September in New Orleans based on a script by Gierasch and Jace Anderson. The pair jumped on board the property in February (details).

More casting announcements are expected later this week!

EXCLUSIVE: KENDRA BREAKS HER SILENCE AND TALKS TO E!


 

Kendra Wilkinson doesn't seem to be in a hurry to clear up any rumors of a rift between her and Hef's other girls. A video posted by THE SUN in the UK has Holly clearing dissing Kendra as host Paul Heyman presses for more friction between the two (Click here: thesun). 

"Think what you want!" she coyly tells E! News at the Blu-Ray Pre-ESPY Pool Party Monday night when asked if she's moving out of the Playboy mansion. "I love it, I love it!"

One thing is for sure: Kendra has at least one solo project outside of The Girls Next Door. The blond tomboy will be working, not walking, the red carpet at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday.

Kendra said she's superexcited to interview pro athletes for E!, alongside Jason Kennedy. Funny, we thought it was Bridget who wanted to get into hosting and broadcasting.

Ultimately, while the girls took pictures together last night, Kendra made sure to pose for plenty of solo shots, too. Clearly, the claws are out.

Ben & Jerry's makes `Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road' for Elton John


Ben & Jerry's has done it again: Hoping to honor rocker Elton John before his first-ever Vermont performance, Vermont's crazy-cool confectioner has whipped up a flavor just for him — "Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road."

The limited-batch ice cream, made from "an outrageous symphony of decadent chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks," is a take-off on his 1970s album and song "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

It will be available from July 18 to July 25 in the company's Vermont scoop shops, with proceeds going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, officials said Tuesday.

It'll also be doled out in cups, cones and dishes at John's sold-out Champlain Valley Expo show Monday.

Collapse )


John collaborated, and has given his stamp of approval to the ice cream, even though he hasn't actually tasted it, Greenwood said.

"He said, `Chocolate and peanut butter, guys, if you can make something like that work,'" said Greenwood.

Tickets for the show — priced at $75 to $135 — are sold out.

Alice In Chains Hard At Work on New CD



Alice In Chains, having not released a full length studio album of original material since 1995's self titled album, are working hard in the studio to have the record done by the end of 2008. Although the band did record a few songs that were released on their box set Music Bank in 1999, "Alice In Chains" was the final album with original vocalist Layne Staley, who died of a drug overdose in 2002. The band has since reunited with new vocalist, William DuVall who toured with Alice In Chains on their reunion tour.

We caught up with Jerry Cantrell to get his thoughts on choosing DuVall to fill the immensely huge shoes of Layne Staley and where they are at with completing the new album.

"We just kind of met and got along you know and ended up playing together on my solo tour and when we started thinking about doing some playing I suggested him coming in and jamming with us and the guys had a good time with him. That was like three years ago and we're still hanging out and having a good time and making some music. We're in the middle. Yeah, we're in the middle."


Alice In Chains have sold more than 14 million albums in the United States, released two number-one albums and 19 top 40 singles, and have received six Grammy nominations. As of press time the band doesn't have any tour dates for 2008 as they continue to work hard putting the finishing touches on the new material.

Kline Death Scene Ruined By Cellphone Chatter



Kevin Kline was horrified to hear his death speech in a performance of Cyrano De Bergerac last year was ruined by an audience member on the phone.

The thespian was so into the scene he blocked out the chatter in the third row as one thoughtless theatregoer talked to a pal about dining out after the production.

But, when he came offstage, co-star Jennifer Garner told him what was going on as he was `dying' onstage.

He says, "Apparently this lady's cellphone rang just as I was doing my last speech about my life being meaningful because of panache, and what have you.

"As I'm going on, she hears the phone ring; she picks it up and she says, `Yeah, no, I'm still here... He's lying down. It's going to be over soon. Yeah, it's Jennifer. Yeah, Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner. Yeah, no, he's dying. I'll be a couple more minutes. I'll be there. I'll be there. Just wait. You can order for me. Yeah. Okay. He's dead. He's dead. Oh, the curtain came down. Okay. I'll be right there.'

"If I had heard that, I would have sped up the whole death thing. It's annoying as all hell."

I had to post this because I saw the show and thought it was wonderful, especially him--I would have killed her with my bare hands if I'd been there for that one. (Although it's kind of funny, in a twisted way.)

Hello, Dolly! 9 to 5 Books Broadway's Marquis; Full Casting Announced


Stephanie J. Block, Allison Janney, and Megan Hilty

The Marquis Theatre will be the Broadway home of the feisty office workers who are "just a step on the bossman's ladder" in the Dolly Parton-Patricia Resnick musical comedy 9 to 5, producer Robert Greenblatt announced July 15.

Following a fall run at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles (Sept. 3-Oct. 19, opening Sept. 20), the Joe Mantello-directed production will begin Broadway previews March 24, 2009, and open April 23, 2009.

This marks the Broadway debut of the writers. Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights) will choreograph.

As previously announced, 9 to 5: The Musical will star four-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney as Violet, Stephanie J. Block as Judy, Megan Hilty as Dorelee, and two-time Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Mr. Hart. (Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Parton and Dabney Coleman played the respective roles in the movie.)

Minnie Driver talks about her baby, baby daddy and baby names

 

Minnie Driver is all over suddenly fresh. Her new movie named "Take" is out next week. Her first baby, yet unnamed, is due next month.

"With this pregnancy I was very sick the first four months," said Minnie. "My black Lab Bubba, my forever constant loving companion, knew it. He'd see me lying on the couch. He'd stay with me. He felt for me. But now I'm nearly there and feeling fit. I'm keeping athletic. Running with my dog four miles every day along the beach in Malibu. I'm going to walk this baby out. I always wanted to be a mommy. I'm very into feeling this female thing."

 She is not planning to have the baby's father in the delivery room. She is maybe not even planning to have the baby's father in her life.

"I'm not married and don't know if I'll stay with the guy. It's great to be an independent creature. Today you don't need a man anymore. In the old days, a baby without marriage and people would put you out. Today you speak about it on talk shows.

"My mom and Aunt Serena will be with me, as will my best friends, a midwife and a yoga teacher. And I'll be the wailing monster at the center.

"Because of work I'll need a nanny, but I intend to be a hands-on mommy. I have two houses, so I've readied two rooms. Not pink or blue, because I don't know if it's a boy or girl, so I've just made them neutral and peaceful. Being traditional, if it's a boy I'll name him Thomas. A girl, Isabel . . . I just want to stay healthy."

Now, as for Minnie Driver's other baby, "Take." A heavy-duty drama about a single mother of a special-ed boy who's kidnapped.

"Maybe because this is where my head is these days, but I poured a huge amount of emotion into this little film which was shot under one month and only cost $1 million. We all worked for peanuts. We all wanted to support the project.

"Right now in my life I'm truly feeling very blessed."

Former Family Ties Star Violates Probation



Former child star, Brian Bonsall, who played Michael J. Fox's kid brother, Andy Keaton, in Family Ties, is in trouble again: this time for probation violation.

Bonsall, 26, of Boulder, Colo., was sentenced in 2007 to two years probation for assaulting his girlfriend. She claimed that he poured an alcoholic drink on her face as she slept, choked her and threw her on a bed.

As part of his sentencing, Bonsall agreed to take domestic violence classes and to stay away from drugs and alcohol. But according to the complaint filed in Boulder District Court, Bonsall, who is unemployed, couldn't pay for his classes, missed breathalyzer tests and walked out on a required urine test.

Bonsall is due back in court on Wednesday. New recommendations for his probation could include 60 days of work release, required attendance at AA meetings, as well as paying for the domestic violence classes.
