Radiohead brings Lollapalooza its first sellout in festival's history, go ~*~green~*~



All 75,000 tickets for Friday’s opening day of Lollapalooza at Grant Park have been sold, according to the festival Web site. It marks the first sell-out for the festival since it made the lakefront its home in 2005.

The Friday headliner, Radiohead, is making its first appearance in Chicago since releasing its latest studio album, “In Rainbows,” on its Web site last year. The band was planning to announce a Thursday concert at the Chicago Theatre, but canceled it at the last minute to allow singer Thom Yorke time to recover from an illness.The band last played Grant Park exactly seven years ago, on Aug. 1, 2001. That concert was also a sell-out, but only 25,000 tickets were sold.Tickets ($80) remain for the remaining two days of Lollapalooza, on Saturday and Sunday.

~*~Lolla preview~*~
2008’s lineup includes mega UK band Radiohead, who in an effort to be more green, are touring this summer utilizing what are basically gigantic rechargeable batteries to power their mesmerizing lightshow. Radiohead are known for having an amazing live performance and have been included on many “must see” lists including Q magazine’s Top 50 Bands To See Before You Die.

Radiohead are joined by Rage Against The Machine and Nine Inch Nails, both who headlined the tour in 1991 and 1992. RATM revolutionized rock and roll all throughout the 1990’s infusing hip-hop beats with Tom Morello’s electric guitar edge and Zach De La Rocha’s potent and unforgettable lyrical rhymes. The band broke-up in 1999 and reunited last year at the 2007 Coachella Festival and have been playing a few highly anticipated dates since. Meanwhile Trent Reznor and camp from Nine Inch Nails have been supporting their latest album “The Slip” which they released for free download to fans on their website in July.

Other main stage acts include hip-hop artist and producer Kanye West, The White Stripes’ Jack White, performing with his other band, The Raconteurs, alternative country rock band Wilco, and groovey hip-hopsters, Gnarles Barkley. Tickets to the show are $80 bucks for a day-pass or $200 for a three-day pass. If heat, gas, and ticket prices can be overlooked, Lollapalooza 2008 looks to be a summer music festival not to be missed.

Lady Ga Ga: Britney Track Gave Me Chills



Lady Ga Ga, who has had a lot of press over her career Britney lately, was interviewed by HX Weekly, and revealed that the track Britney recorded with her and Darkchild was "amazing."

Interviewer: You surely earned even more gay fans with the recent announcement that you wrote a track for Britney’s upcoming album. Was that a dream come true?

Lady Ga Ga: Yeah. I was working with Rodney Jerkins on Pussycat Dolls, and we wrote this song - I almost slipped and told you the name. Thank God I caught myself; I respect her a lot, so I was to give her control over that. When we were done with the song, I was like, "Oh, I want to sing it," but my album was already closed. It never even crossed my mind that she was doing a new record. Then Rodney played it for [Britney's manager] Larry Rudolph, who was in the studio. Rodney called me later and was like, "Britney's people are freaking out about this song." Ultimately, she makes the decisions, so when I found out that she loved it and was going to record it, it was amazing. I actually heard it yesterday with her on it for the first time, and I really had chills."

SNEAK PEAK: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's New Book





Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are gearing up to take the literary world by storm – or at least glam it up a little – with their upcoming coffee-table book Influence, and PEOPLE has a preview of its two covers.

One version of the 272-page hardcover book – due out Oct. 28 – will feature Mary-Kate on the cover, with Ashley on the back, while the other version swaps their positions.

"Ashley and Mary-Kate take readers on a journey through their celebrated young lives, pausing to reflect on what has helped shape them into who they are today," the book's publisher said in a statement. "They interviewed 20 people and wrote brief essays about each other. In each interview, the girls explore what inspired the interviewee."

Those interviewed include fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Diane Von Furstenburg, John Galliano and Christian Louboutin, as well as model-actress Lauren Hutton.

"We interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others," Mary-Kate said. "We want to explain culturally how ideas evolve."

Chimed in Ashley: "We have filled Influence with the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know – the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation."

The book's artwork includes photos and drawings provided by the interviewees, as well as never-before-seen photos from the 22-year-old twins' private collections.

Too bad Pablo Escobar is dead. They could still include an epilogue with Howard Schultz or the Marlboro Man, though.


eta: Realized that the covers were already posted last night, my apologies. This article has a lot more (and new) information in it than the other post did, however, so I'm just going to leave the post up. Plus, from the comments it sounds like a lot of people hadn't yet seen this.

Oh, and for the people wondering: According to PEOPLE, Ashley is on the top cover and Mary Kate is on the bottom cover, though TBH I thought it was the other way around. I guess the mystery lives on!

SEAN PRESTON SPEARS-FEDERLINE - VIRGO - 9/14/05 "[Kevin Federline] is his stability, but he will completely accept [Britney Spears] and admire her for who she is without judging her," British psychic and astrologer Michele Knight (micheleknight.co.uk) tells Us. Sean "has the chart of somebody who will be good at making money in banking or investments" but "he'll always be drawn to troubled women!"


RYDER ROBINSON - CAPRICORN - 1/7/04HARLOW MADDEN - CAPRICORN - 1/11/08 "Harlow has a lot of creative potential but she lacks motivation," Knight says of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's 7-month-old daughter. "She could decide to do one creative job, then change her mind and go in the opposite way." What kind of men will she date? "Possibly someone foreign from a different background."



SAM SHEEN - PISCES - 3/9/04 Despite Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards' messy divorce, their 4-year-old "will always adore her dad," says Knight. "He is the love of her life and they have a cosmic relationship. She is also quite psychic and good at predicting." Sam "won't want to be in the public eye," predicts Knight.

Helen Mirren's Drug Confession

The 63-year-old actress dabbled with illegal substances when she was younger, but insists she was always a "good girl".

She said: "I was always a good girl. I always showed up on time. I was never ever late.

"I never got drunk. I did drugs but only on my own time, not when I was working."

The Oscar winner also revealed she regrets turning down the late Keith Moon's request for her to perform on stage with legendary British rock band The Who.

She said: "It was my absolute failure as a rock 'n' roller - I so blew it.

"It was my awful, 'Got to do it the right way,' kind of thing. I really lost out there. I've regretted it all my life. It was a terrible mistake."

From festival history to this year's buzz bands, industry luminaries to local heroes, here's our alphabetical primer on all things Lolla:

Summary:
- Samantha Ronson is the "special guest" dj with Perry Ferrell on Saturday. Lilo is with her. They plan to stop by the Rock the Vote tent on Saturday afternoon.

- Pete Wentz's bar, Angels and Kings, is hosting 3 days of Lolla-Warped after parties. Saturday includes Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is, The Bronx, and more. Pete Wentz will close out the weekend with a special dj set on Sunday night.

Sharon Osbourne: Paris Hilton "Has No Talent"



America's Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne says Paris Hilton would never wind up on the hit NBC show. Why? "She has no talent!" Osbourne, 55, tells Parade.com. "I'm sure Paris would tell you that herself." See Paris' and other stars' first time on the red carpet. The only thing going for the 27-year-old heiress? "She's got a look that a lot of younger girls liked and copied," Osbourne says. Hilton managed to gain fame because "the timing was right for her," Osbourne adds. "A lot of younger women looked up to her. She's a very sweet, nice girl. But that's it. Then you put a full stop. It's over. So I'd say Paris is infamous.” See photos of the new "it" stars. Hating on Hilton seems to be popular these days. Blake Lively recently told Seventeen she can't stand when people say she resembles the heiress. "It's a dumb thing to say," Lively said. "I don't think that makes Paris and me similar ... I don't go to clubs, I don't party, I don't dance on tables, and I don't like sex tapes." Tina Fey has called Hilton a "piece of shit," claiming Hilton "takes herself so seriously." Tell Us: What do you think Paris' biggest talent is?

Conor Oberst Mexican influence on new album

Conor Oberst reveals Mexican influence on solo album

Bright Eyes man also says why he dropped band name

Photobucket

Conor Oberst has spoken about the reason why his new album (titled 'Conor Oberst') is a solo record, rather than a Bright Eyes one.

Speaking to the The Sun's Something For The Weekend, the singer revealed he could use the name without including his closest musical collaborator.

"The main reason it takes my name instead of Bright Eyes is because Mike Mogis [ to be a band with him and I can't use that name without him," he explained.

Oberst also said there were advantages recording in Mexico.

"It was the middle of winter and a warm, sunny place seemed attractive," he said. "So we talked the owner into letting us set up shop and make a noise.

"Any time we lost interest or motivation was waning, we would just stop and hang-out, do a bit of singing around the bonfire, drink beers and go into the town."

Oberst[b] recently announced details of a UK tour this August. Along with his [b]Mystic Valley Band, he'll play the following dates:

Birmingham Academy 2 (23)
Reading Festival (24)
Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (26)
London Electric Ballroom (27)

Bogus Tokio Hotel star charged with Internet sex hoax

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A French youth has been charged with posing online as the star of teen rock band Tokio Hotel to trick young girls into sending him nude photos, police said Friday.

The 18-year-old from southwestern France signed up to a string of online chatrooms mascarading as Tokio Hotel singer and teen heartthrob Bill Kaulitz, striking up relations with young girls aged from 11 to 17.

He convinced several to send him nude photographs, some sexually explicit, which he went on to publish on the Internet.

He was arrested on Tuesday and is to stand trial in the southwestern city of Perpignan, police said.

The German pop group Tokio Hotel released their first album in May 2006 and quickly became a major success in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland.

LA Times, Heath Not Deserving of Oscar

 

Sobering up on Heath Ledger

Don't memorialize the 'Dark Knight' star's death with an Academy Award.
By Eric P. Lucas
August 1, 2008
It's time to stop the canonization of Heath Ledger. He's not a tragic hero. He's not a beautiful martyr. He's just a pretty good actor who did away with himself and broke the hearts of his family and friends, and he shouldn't get an Academy Award to memorialize his death.

Ledger's brief career culminated in his portrayal of the Joker in "The Dark Knight," a role that at first seems compelling ("mesmerizing," critics have fawned) but ultimately devolves into a can-can dance of snuffling pseudo-psychopathia. It has all the subtlety of a hangover -- exactly what I'd expect from someone who headed home every night to a pill party. Still, "The Dark Knight" has soared to unprecedented success, and Ledger's name is mentioned incessantly for an Oscar.

The current mania joins Ledger to a long line of creative figures who committed the ultimate failure and are, unfortunately, all the more famous for it: Dylan Thomas, Hank Williams, Jackson Pollock, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, John Belushi, Janis Joplin. Some drank themselves to death, some overdosed, some ran their cars off the road. As the saying goes in AA, the stories are the same, only the details are different.

New Björk Single!

Björk releases the new single ‘The Dull Flame of Desire’ on September 29th 2008 through One Little Indian Records.

Flooded with melancholic passion and restrained hope, ‘The Dull Flame of Desire’ sees Björk accompanied on vocals by Antony Hegarty from Antony & The Johnsons. Antony joined Björk onstage at her recent Hammersmith live shows and sang ‘Dull Flame’ to showstopping effect. ‘The duet seemed unsurpassable – the pair’s distinctive vocals brought to life against brass, transfixing the crowd’ The Independent April 15th.

‘The Dull Flame of Desire’ features lyrics taken from a translation of a poem by Fyodor Tyutchev as it appears in the film ‘Stalker’ by Andrei Tarkovsky. Taken from her most recent studio album ‘Volta’, ‘Dull Flame’ is written and produced by Björk and follows recent singles ‘Earth Intruders’, ‘Declare Independence’, ‘Innocence’ and ‘Wanderlust’.

Björk has also commissioned brand new mixes of ‘Dull Flame’ by Modeselektor and Mark Stent as well as a Sinden mix of ‘Innocence’. Mixes come on Limited Edition 12” and CD, Cat No 881TP7CD/881TP12.

Meanwhile the video concept for ‘Dull Flame’ is as unique as we come to expect from Björk. Out of hundreds entrants for the “Innocence” music video competition (which ran on www.bjork.com offering new directors the chance to work with Björk), she chose 3 new directors to collaborate on the “Dull Flame” video.

Björk and Antony performed against green screen in New York then each director was sent the raw footage to edit and create their piece. Christoph Jantos (Berlin) Masahiro Mogari (Tokyo) and Marçal Cuberta Junca (Girona) are the chosen directors. Each director was given their own section of the film, to develop how they wished - on completion the 3 films were edited together in London to make the final music video.


‘Volta’ is Björk's sixth studio album and follows the release of ‘Medúlla’ in 2004.
Featuring ten new and original tracks, ‘Volta’ is written and produced by Björk, with two tracks co-produced with Timbaland and one with Mark Bell.

2007 and 2008 has seen Björk take her thrilling Volta Tour across the world in series of festival headline performances and her own shows to considerable acclaim, and continues through Europe this summer.

Trent Reznor: Johnny Cash cover felt 'like someone kissing your girlfriend'

Nine Inch Nails man speaks out about 'Hurt' cover



Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has revealed that hearing Johnny Cash's cover of his song 'Hurt' for the first time felt "like someone kissing [his] girlfriend".

Reznor added that the 2002 cover matters much more to him than industry accolades like the Grammys.

Speaking to The Sun's Something For The Weekend, the frontman said: "[Producer Rick Rubin] called me to ask how I'd feel if Johnny Cash covered 'Hurt'. I said I'd be very flattered but was given no indication it would actually be recorded.

"Two weeks went by. Then I got a CD in the post. I listened to it and it was very strange. It was this other person inhabiting my most personal song. Hearing it was like someone kissing your girlfriend. It felt invasive."

Reznor also hailed Cash's cover as a great honour, saying: "Having Johnny Cash, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time, want to cover your song, that's something that matters to me. It's not so much what other people think but the honour that this guy felt it was worthy of interpreting.

"He said afterwards it was a song that sounds like one he would have written in the 60s and that's wonderful."

Madonna and Guy Don't Read Tabloids, Says Pal

In the past few weeks, Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie have endured intense speculation about the status of their marriage. But the couple isn't affected by the media scrutiny, says one pal – in fact, they completely ignore it.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"I know for a fact [that] they don't read anything," actor Vinnie Jones – a longtime Ritchie pal – told PEOPLE Thursday at Hollywood screening of his new film Hell Ride. "No one's getting at them."

Jones – who appeared in the Guy Ritchie-directed Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch – discounts reports claiming the couple's marriage is on the rocks.

"It seems nowadays people can write about what they want and get away with it," he said. "It's quite bizarre."

Gossip about the two – who are rarely photographed together – reached a fever pitch last month, when papers began linking Madonna with baseball star Alex Rodriguez. (She has emphatically denied allegations of an affair.) Ritchie recently told PEOPLE his marriage is fine.

As for the couple and their three children – Lourdes, 11, Rocco, 7, and David, 2 – they "seem very close," Jones said. "That's why all of this crap that goes about just amazes me."

likes 90210, dislikes hairy kisses


Franco discusses his plans for an adult bar mitzvah "with a Spider-Man or Green Goblin theme," the self-hatred of comedians, trying to be James Dean, and his role in Gus Van Sant's Milk.

"Doing Milk was an incredible experience and I talked about how My Own Private Idaho had such an effect on me and also Drugstore Cowboy. Gus van Sant had been a hero of mine since I was a teenager and Sean Penn as well. And so it was a chance to work with two of my heroes. I will be asked what it was like to kiss Sean Penn about a million times and the few times I run into paparazzi that's their new annoying thing. It was uncomfortable. Especially like the first time we did it. We didn't do it many times but the first kiss of the film he had on — he grew a beard but he needed a slightly thicker beard so he had some hairs intertwined in his real hairs and so we kissed and those kept getting in my mouth, and it was just kind of uncomfortable...."

Solange Knowles says people will "talk shit"





Awwwwwhhhh Dammmmnnn........

Here we go again. People going to be talking shit when this shit hits the fan. lol.

In this journey I have been so blessed to come across many faces and
spaces that have shown so much love.
I hear so many folk who love that the record is a departure from most
of the traditional things out right now.
I get people who love my steez and encourage me to be me and I THANK YOU

Unfortunately I'm in an industry where diversity is not celebrated the
way it should be.
When some people see and hear something different it feels foreign to
them and they don't like that.
Everyone has a choice of what they like and that's a beautiful thing!!!
BUT Record labels, managers, publicist, journalist, media ect… have a
tendency to see something work and try to reciprocate that with another
artist thinking that's what makes success.
To me what makes success is letting people be truly who they are.

When I heard Kanye's "Everything I Am" I instantly fell in love.
I felt my story somewhere in his. I felt his frustration yet
acceptance of who he was.
So I decided to put my own little twist on it:)

Warning: This song in NO WAY shape or fashion has a negative light to
any of the artist I mention...I love and respect them ALL.
I am just simply expressing myself and my story.
When I say F.U. I am talking to no one in particular, only those that
feel guilty of categorizing :)

I feel that many people can relate to this song outside of the
industry and that's why I want to share.
This is the first song off the mixtape series coming out soon named

"I Can't Get Clearance..."

I hope u have a beautiful sunny day and starry night.

Colin Firth Joins Ealing's Dorian Gray

We here at Empire have long suspected that Colin Firth has some kind of Picture Of Dorian Gray deal going on. Seriously, look at the man – he’s 47 but doesn’t seem to have aged a day in at least the last decade.

Well, all speculation aside, the great man now has, quite literally, a Picture Of Dorian Gray deal going on, just signed on to star alongside Ben Barnes in Dorian Gray, the new Ealing Studios’ film of the classic Oscar Wilde horror tale about a man who makes a Faustian pact to stay forever young, while his portrait ages accordingly.

Barnes, fresh from Prince Caspian (and, at 26, another blighter who looks like he has an enchanted picture hanging somewhere in his attic), will play the title character, while Firth will play Lord Henry Wooton, an aristocrat who exerts a corrupting influence on the hedonistic Gray.

remember The Veronicas?



The Secret Life of The Veronicas was exposed yesterday - literally - after raunchy pictures of a girl believed to be one of the pop twins were splashed over an international porn site.

In a controversial scenario reminiscent of the recent sex scandals which soiled the reputations of US teen queens Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus, steamy shots of Jess Origliasso have been posted on a porn weblog.


Cementing her status as the wilder of the two siblings, Jess - identified by her distinctive tattoo on her bare upper back - is pictured with a suggestive expression in the sepia-toned image.

While entertainment industry insiders were yesterday buzzing about the singer's latest shock rock'n'roll antics, a spokeswoman for The Veronicas stopped short of confirming the secondary topless shot was actually the Origliasso twin.

"The portrait photograph of the girl looking at the camera is obviously Jess but, although the photos appear to have similarities in style and setting, I'm confident that the girl in the topless photograph is not her," the Warner Music publicist told Confidential.

Doctored or not, the saucy shots were still a hit on the site, receiving more than 11,000 hits since being posted by an unknown user.

According to her publicist, the pint-sized star, 23, could not be reached for comment or final clarification on the suggestive images.

Perhaps she was sleeping off the night before - with paparazzi shots of the pop-rocker partying at a Sydney pub with openly gay MTV presenter Ruby Rose also surfacing yesterday.

While maintaining they are "just friends", the dark-haired duo have been snapped kissing and holding hands on several occasions in recent months.

While the Origliasso twins may be small in height they're certainly not short of drama - just a week ago Lisa Origliasso and her Neighbours star fiance Dean Geyer made the shock decision to call off their engagement.

It is believed Lisa's ex-boyfriend, Brisbane radio DJ Ryan Tothill, may have caused the split after reclaiming the singer's heart.

Do you think it's her?

Emma Roberts Willing to Wreck James McAvoy's Marriage

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

RISING teenage star Emma Roberts has declared her undying love for Scots actor James McAvoy.

The 17-year-old actress, niece of Hollywood A-lister Julia Roberts, was in Glasgow last night for the premiere of British movie Wild Child.

And the teenager revealed she has a massive crush on our James - and even cried when she discovered the Shameless star is married.

Emma, who has inherited her aunt's Pretty Woman looks, said: "I'm in love with James McAvoy. I literally cried when I found out he was married. I'm tearing up thinking about it - I may have to wreck their home."

Emma is not easily impressed by movie icons as she grew up surrounded by Hollywood royalty and starred alongside Johnny Depp in Blow at age nine.

Many predict she has the potential to be as big a talent as Julia - but for now the California girl only has eyes for Drumchapel's James, who counts Angelina Jolie as one of his on-screen conquests.

Emma said: "I saw him in Wanted and it's my favourite film of the entire summer.

"He has an amazing body. I was dying in the cinema - I thought 'I just love you.'"

We can only guess James' wife Anne-Marie Duff be too pleased.

In Wild Child, out next week, Emma stars with Nip/Tuck's Natasha Richardson as rebellious teen Poppy Moore, who lives a pampered life in LA but is sent to boarding school in England by her dad.

Emma is known for her lead role in Nickelodeon TV series Unfabulous and also played teen icon Nancy Drew in a movie of the same name.

But she refuses to use her aunt's name to help her.

She said: "It's cool to be compared to Julia as she is an amazing actress, but I want to accomplish things on my own.

"Julia doesn't really give a lot of advice. She always says, 'Just be yourself, be natural, have fun and be a kid.'"

Rupert Grint stuff.

A fan picture from the set of "Cherrybomb" has surfaced off from Deviantart....




And a snippet of a translated interview on the Half Blood Prince set with Rupert:
"Each film is a little different. Ron is more certain of himself here. He plays Quidditch, has a girlfriend...Some cool [new additions.] We filmed our scenes with Jessie Cave (Lavendar Brown) some weeks ago, notably the kissing scene. Without rehersals, actually: We just went for it! It was a bit intimidating since it is before a Quidditch match and so it was in front of plenty of people! It was embarrasing at first, we were both nervous but we [got used to it] and it went well... The couple Ron/Hermione, I was expecting a little while reading the seventh novel. But it's true that when we are confronted with this scene, it will be rather strange to film. We have a very fraternal relationship, so it will be bizarre. But we will do it, don't worry! (laughs)

Shia's Busted Hand to Be Featured in "Transformers 2"

Shia LaBeouf's Crash Injury to Be Written Into Transformers 2



The show must go on!

Transformers 2 director Michael Bay says Shia LaBeouf's injury from his weekend car crash may be tied into the upcoming blockbuster sequel.

“His two fingers are pretty mashed, but we’re figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it in the story,” Bay told
Access Hollywood of the actor, 22, who has undergone extensive hand surgery.

Although LaBeouf was charged with a misdemeanor DUI on July 27, Bay insisted the actor wasn't drunk when his green Ford F-150 truck collided with another car. (On Tuesday, police said LaBeouf was not at fault; the other driver apparently ran a red light.)

Witnesses tell Usmagazine.com that LaBeouf was doing shots of whiskey at L.A.'s Troubadour club before he and co-star Isabel Lucas were involved in the crash. Police later said that LaBeouf showed "outward signs of intoxication."

“You’re gonna see — that’s gonna go away,” Bay said of the DUI charge. "He was not drunk. He was drinking hours and hours before.”

Ironically, Bay said he warned LaBeouf about driving safely days before the collision.

“We had a little heart to heart the week before when he bought a brand new motorcycle," he recalled. "[I said], ‘Dude, you cannot ride that motorcycle! If you crash, you put 1,500 people out of work!'

“He said, ‘Ok, I won’t ride it,'" Bay added. "'I’ll just drive my truck.’”

Despite the setback, Bay insisted LaBeouf "really has his head together.

"He’s only 22,” Bay added. “He’s doing a great job on this movie. He’s really matured since the last one, and I love working with him.”

New Keane Album Information

Photobucket

Dear friends,

As you'll have gathered from our many and varied blogs, broadcasts and photos, we've been lost in a world of new music over the last few months - writing songs, pushing our limits, making fools of ourselves, and generally having a wicked time.

We started out in Paris, where Jon Brion inspired us to create first and think later. We took the night train to Berlin, where everything came together in an avalanche of experimentation that took us all by surprise; where we made a pact with Stuart Price to ignore the rules of good taste; where we were hypnotised by Marlene Dietrich and spent many a long night throwing ideas around in the crumbling Cabaret-esque glamour of our favourite bar.

We've hidden ourselves away in the depths of the English countryside, recorded a new track in London at the last possible moment, and now we're in Los Angeles tying up the loose ends.

We've had an amazing time making this album and we're very, very proud of it. It's called Perfect Symmetry and will be released on October 13th.

Tom, Tim and Richard

ps - Keep an eye on keanemusic.com. We've got a treat coming.


there is a new single called "Spiraling" that is going to be released for free on monday! I'm so excited.

Winehouse's Dad Furious Over Spike Claims



Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, is furious about reports that claim he thinks the star's recent hospital dash was the result of her being spiked with ecstasy. He insists he never made such statements.

Amy Winehouse was admitted to the hospital on Monday after she fell ill at her London home.

The singer's spokesman subsequently released a statement blaming her condition on an adverse reaction to medication she is taking to help kick her drug addiction.

Winehouse was discharged from London's University College Hospital on Tuesday morning following a series of medical tests.

However, reports in The Sun claimed a source had revealed how "Mitch was furious," and that he was "certain someone put E (ecstasy) in Amy's drink."

But the singer's dad has dismissed the reports, and is eager to find out who made the claims to the tabloids.


When asked by the BBC if he thought his daughter's hospital admittance was because she was spiked, Mitch told reporters it was not, and explained he had never insinuated it was.

He added, "And I don't know who this source is. But I'm gonna find out."

Hilary Duff gets her curves back


[on the Stay Cool set]

"HILARY Duff revealed a much curvier figure on the set of her newest film yesterday.
The stunning actress, who worried friends and family when she lost a drastic amount of weight in 2005, looked healthy and happy filming scenes for Stay Cool.
Hilary had previously claimed her shrinking frame was down to pilates and exercise, but later revealed she did feel she had lost too much weight.
She said: "I did get skinny, I've felt that pressure like everyone else in my position. When a newspaper comes out that says 'Duff Puff - she must have gained 15 pounds' or something like that, how would any normal person react?"
The 20-year-old revealed she has body worries like everyone else, adding: "People are thin. I do worry about what I look like but I'm not going to let it control my life."
Hilary is currently working on recording her new album, including a song penned by Ryan Tedder - frontman for OneRepublic and the man responsible for Leona Lewis' global hit, Bleeding Love."

Rebecca Romijn baby bump


Rebecca Romijn

Let the bump watch begin! 

Days after Usmagazine.com broke the news that Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell are expecting twins, the mom-to-be, 35, returned to work. 

She showed off a mini bump on the set of Ugly Betty earlier this week. 

Her co-stars couldn't help but gush about the pregnancy. 

"She is so happy — she is going to be such a great mom!" Ana Ortiz told Usmagazine.com at the NYC premiere of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 on Monday. "She’s a kid herself, and so is Jerry. Those kids are the luckiest people. I can’t wait to meet them!" 

Added co-star Becki Newton: "I love the idea of a couple like that having babies! 

"It’s so great. We’re really, really happy for them. They're great people! The babies will be stand-up comedians!" 

Romijn and O'Connell, 34 — who wed last July — will greet their babies this winter. 

"They did not use fertility treatments," a source says in the new issue of Us Weekly

O'Connell told Us last month that they had been trying to have kids for some time, adding that the process had been "a lot of fun."

Exclusive: Lisa Bonet Sentenced to 'Life on Mars'

Denise Huxtable's about to inhabit a truly different world.


Former Cosby Show offspring Lisa Bonet is joining the cast of ABC's adaptation of the time-tripping U.K. cop drama Life on Mars, sources confirm to me exclusively. Bonet will play Jason O'Mara's present-day girlfriend.

Bonet's hiring comes on the heels of another high-profile Mars casting: Earlier this week, Gretchen Mol signed on to play O'Mara's circa '73 squeeze, setting the stage for one unorthodox love triangle.

Previously announced Mars inhabitants include Harvey Keitel and Michael Imperioli.

Tara Reid Out And About

Tara Reid Out And About

Tara Reid was spotted at Fred Segal doing a little damage with a friend yesterday, showing off her abs in a belly baring stomach. Do people still wear those kinds of shirts? Apparently so. :)

Remember how cute Tara was in American Pie? While I know she's brought some of it upon herself with so much partying, I do feel sort of bad for her since she seems to have such a bum rap in Hollywood. Do you think she'll ever make a comeback?

BLIND ITEMS- and surprise! They're all NICE

#1 - This sister singing duo from a foreign country were performing a show in Los Angeles one time and as usual it was completely sold out. Not a huge place, and as a result there were lots of people who were sent away without getting in. Well, there was a group of about ten girls who were not going to go anywhere and they decided they would at least sit outside the place in the hopes they could hear a few notes at least. Well somehow that news made it to the two wingers and they decided to take the entire group of girls and brought them backstage and let them watch the entire show from the the side of the stage. After the show they posed for photos, signed autographs and gave away practically anything that was giveable.

#2 - This former A list television actor on a very huge super sized hit network comedy and now someone who is trying to find some other identity other than that character either in television or film makes sure that he gives blood every two months like clockwork. He has been doing this now for almost ten years all with no fanfare or attention.

#3 - Wow this actress is the epitome of a B/C lister. Everyone knows her because she has had some great roles on some great television shows and some films. Everytime she gets her own series, it doesn't do so well, but she is incredibly well liked. Right now she is filming a remake/sequel to one of my favorite films of all time from the 70's. I'm cheesy that way. Anyway, when she is in LA, she volunteers at an after school program which helps kids with their homework and to give them adult guidance they may not get at home. When she is filming in a different city, she calls around and tries to do the same thing at other schools on a temporary basis.

#4 - Is this actor A list? Interesting question. He was an A list action film star and then kept giving it all away. Now he is probably still considered A list by definition, but probably more a B. Well in the past several years, this actor has without any publicity given away about $250,000 to various SPCA charities and other pet organizations. Turns out the guy everyone always thinks is a jerk is actually a pretty nice guy.

Petition for Bono to retire..s dkfjl

Petition asking Bono to retire launches


Nearly $400 has been pledged so far

Photobucket

An online petition asking for U2 frontman Bono to "retire from public life" has so far raised $390.

The petition is published on Thepoint.com.

It's stated aim is: "To get Bono to retire from public life (so he'll stop leading misguided counter-productive philanthropy efforts)."

The petition's creator also declared that all money raised will be given to charity, depending on the success of the petition.

The creator states: "We will give money to Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

"But we will only pay if we meet our objective."

U2 are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album, the follow-up to 2004's 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb'.

Kate Hudson runs back to Chris Robinson



Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong's relationship might have just ended, but that doesn't mean she can't immediately screw her ex-husband. Kate was spotted yesterday in New Jersey at Chris Robinson's apartment presumably to make sure she got her daily dose of doing it. I think I'm starting to love this woman. OK! Magazine reports:

"They were really affectionate with each other and gave each other a kiss which lasted much longer then a platonic kiss should last — 20 seconds, maybe a little longer.
"Without going into all the details the kiss was more than just friends. They seemed like something more going on and were very affectionate with each other."
A pal of Kate's tells OK!, "She and Chris have always been close and she turns to her exes after most of her breakups."

I bet Chris Robinson religiously follow Kate's love life in the tabloids: "Oh, snap, she just got dumped again! Time to break out the Marvin Gaye and penis wax. Chris Robinson's getting laaaaaaaaaaiiiid!" Somewhere, Chris just read this and wonders if I've bugged his house because, holy shit, was that quote accurate.

Radiohead fans preferred to download 'illegal' versions of 'In Rainbows'

More people got the album from P2P sites official site?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A study has claimed that more people downloaded Radiohead's 'In Rainbows' album from illegal peer-to-peer websites than the band's own site, despite it being offered there for free.

A research paper from P2P monitor Big Champagne and the UK’s MCPS-PRS royalty collector said that 2.3 million people chose to download the album from sites such as BitTorrent rather than Inrainbows.com.

The report called the number "staggering", saying that it: "far exceeds what outsiders have reported as the estimated download total from the band's official website, regardless of whether those downloaders paid or not."

Radiohead have so far refused to disclose either how much money they made from Inrainbows.com, or how many people downloaded the album from the site in total.

Gilmore Questions Answered
Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities

Hey everyone,
I have received a lot of questions about Gilmore Girls and here are some answers.
First Off, Gilmore Girls is currently not filming. The show ended on May 15, 2007. We had seven season. There is always re-runs on different channels, plus all seven season are released on DVD. The cast and crew had become a second family to me when it ended. But the end was much needed. Television shows cant last forever. I wish but it just isn't possible sometimes. The show will always be apart of me and my career. Gilmore Girls will always be very close to my heart. As for talk about a movie, I have not heard anything. I think it would be amazing and a lot of fun to do. And of course, if I heard any news of a movie, I would sign on and love to do it!

If you have any more questions about the show, Please post them in here and I will try to answer them!

Thanks for all your support!
All My Love,
Alexis

'The Hills': Whitney Port addresses spin-off rumors




MTV's hit The Hills returns for its fourth season Aug. 18 (check out the EW cover story), and it may very well be its last. But the good news for despondent fans is there might be a new project in the works for cast member Whitney Port, who, rumor has it, may be getting a spin-off set in The Big Apple. "At this point I’m just going to New York to film for The Hills," Port tells EW.com. "There are rumors, and rumors that I’ve heard from people at MTV as well, but nothing is set in stone yet, and there is no foreseeable move date right now."

Port adds that there could very well be another season of The HIlls coming up as well. "I was told that was going to be it and then there was talk of maybe another [season]," she says. "So I’m hearing different things from everyone, but at this point we’re all just wrapped up in the moment. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it."

Port, who will continue working for People's Revolution in the upcoming season, has typically steered clear of playing a big role in any of the drama on The Hills, preferring instead to primarily serve as a confidante for good pal Lauren Conrad. Can such a minor "character" anchor her own show? "I'm not one to shy away from cameras, clearly, since I’m on [The Hills], but it’s always been difficult to open up personally," Port admits. "It’s definitely something I’m willing to do, but to the extent that I’ll reveal everything, I’ll do it at my own pace."

Though it remains unclear when (and even if) the spin-off will actually happen, Port is hopeful that it will enable her to make a positive impact as a star. "The thought of it is definitely scary. I think I’d be crazy if I said it wasn’t," she says. "But it’s something I think I can use as a vehicle to just almost hopefully be some sort of role model. And that's not to say that I am, but I try to look at it more that way than that I’m just going to be part of another reality show."

Earnhardt flags taken down for ... Martha Stewart


Friday, August 1
 
KANNAPOLIS (AP) - Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart was the guest of a billionaire developer who prompted local officials to take down flags honoring the late NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt in his hometown, newspapers reported Friday.

Stewart visited the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis on Thursday with David Murdock, the campus founder and owner of Dole Food Co.

Stewart said she would take ideas from the campus to her Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

Last week, city workers took down flags honoring Earnhardt after an official at Murdock's real estate company and a local tourism official said some were dirty and torn and might upset a Murdock guest, who wasn't identified.

'The Hills': They Shoot, Lauren Conrad Scores

lauren-conrad_l
LAUREN CONRAD ''It's about empowering girls,'' she says, when asked what she represents. ''You're gonna have bad boyfriends and best friends-turned-enemies. You need to be yourself, you need to work hard, and you'll get there''

------

Once upon a time, a pretty Laguna Beach girl agreed to let MTV film her life. Now, she's a millionaire mini-mogul whose world as a celebrity bears little resemblance to what TV viewers see. Still, fans can't get enough.

The Kress, a four-story Asian-inspired L.A. club, has barely been open one week, but tonight it's hosting the nightclub equivalent of a meeting with the Pope — that is, a visit from the cast and crew of MTV's reality hit The Hills. With stars Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge due to arrive at 8:30 p.m. for their standard videotaped girl talk over cocktails, the crew is busy prepping the space for the cameras. Two seats at the corner of the bar are reserved, and a production assistant laps around the room handing out forms asking bystanders to agree to appear on camera. If they don't, production will ask them to move, or shoot around them. Most comply easily, unimpressed by the fact that MTV's highest-rated series will be shooting a scene mere feet from their plates of lobster sashimi and beef carpaccio. Clearly, they don't know that roommates Lauren and Audrina are having major tension at home, and this could be, like, a totally important conversation.

Finally, Lauren and Audrina coast into the restaurant and take their seats at the bar. No direction. No rehearsals. They just start talking. Upstairs, the director and four producers, including creator and executive producer Adam DiVello, huddle around three portable monitors. Lauren and Audrina segue into a conversation about tomorrow's barbecue at the house of Lauren's ex-boyfriend Doug. Will it be awkward, Audrina wonders, since Doug recently went on a date with Lauren's friend Stephanie? Lauren admits, ''Tomorrow, I'm gonna need to drink.'' DiVello, catching a shot of Lauren laughing that he thinks will work well for this season's updated opening credits montage, runs over to the story editor to have him jot down the time code. When the girls prepare to depart, the director sends one of the cameras across the street to capture them leaving. Strolling down the boulevard, Lauren, who has been living her life on television for four years and knows how to end a scene, turns to Audrina and smiles. ''Tomorrow,'' she says, ''is gonna be a crazy, fun day.''

It's a wrap. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you make one of the most addictive, hated, beloved, vapid, influential, successful shows on television.

Former Teen Stars Confront Corey Haim about Drugs

View the video here

A week after '80s idol Corey Feldman told PEOPLE he will no longer speak to longtime friend Corey Haim until Haim gets sober, one of their final heated arguments is about to be aired.

In an exclusive clip from an upcoming episode of the A&E reality series The Two Coreys, Feldman and his wife call on two close pals – former teen stars Todd Bridges and Pauly Shore – in an effort to get Haim to admit he needs help.

Having been scheduled to film a cameo appearance in the direct-to-DVD sequel to The Lost Boys, Haim appeared on the set clearly under the influence, stumbling and slurring his speech. A few days later, Feldman staged the meeting at his house, with less-than-stellar results.

Since filming on The Two Coreys ended six months ago, neither Haim nor Feldman have spoken to each other.

"I don’t feel that he's a safe person to have around my wife and child at the moment, for a multitude of reasons," Feldman told PEOPLE.

Haim, who maintains that he is currently sober, responded, "I will always love Corey Feldman, but I lost 105 percent respect for him and his wife."

Don't know about you guys, but I'd want Pauly Shore at my intervention too. Even though I'm pretty sure he was well into his 20s during his stardom on MTV.

Taylor Momsen's  IMG test shots

Momsen was recently signed to the agency's women's board, where she joins the ranks of Daria, Stam, and Kate Moss. Except that Taylor is fourteen, and yes, on Gossip Girl.

A source from the shoot - in Brooklyn - tells us that "Taylor was so nice and so cool. She took the subway from her apartment in Chelsea to the set, with her mom. They said they didn't want to do the usual obvious stuff that a teen TV star would do; they were looking for really high-end things."

Which means that instead of the Neutrogena and Dooney and Bourke route - as traveled by Hilary Duff, Mischa Barton, and now, Emma Roberts and Vanessa Hudgens - Momsen is reaching for Miu Miu, Chanel, and other luxury brands that move between major models and major stars.

But let's not forget that up 'til now, Taylor is basically just a teen soap star. She's very pretty and seems very cool, but is she aspirational enough - at a junior high age - to sell $4,000 bags?

Someone will probably think so. Stay tuned.

Jodie Sweetin Reality Show




Former child star Jodie Sweetin is taking on a starring role in her own reality series.

The twenty-six-year-old actress is best known for her role as “Stephanie Judith Tanner” alongside John Stamos and the Olsen Twins on the hit sitcom Full House.

“We actually got approached about doing it by multiple people. It was one of those things where we were like, ‘Wow. Let’s totally do it.’ I think it’s sort of a fun way to show the other side of celebrity and a sort of semi-normal life.”

“We’re going to start shooting in a couple months,” Jodie told People Magazine at the Maxim Extreme Sports Party in Los Angeles on Thursday. “We are in talks with a couple of networks right now. We have one picked out, but nothing is signed yet.”

The series will feature Jodie, her tattooed hubby Codyn Herpin, and the couple’s infant daughter, Zoie, who joined the family in April.

Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland




BLOCKBUSTER film studio Disney is to shoot a multi-million pound new version of Alice in Wonderland in Plymouth.

Internationally acclaimed director Tim Burton will put his own unique stamp on the classic tale – and it is being heavily rumoured that Hollywood heart-throb Johnny Depp will star as the Mad Hatter.

The film, which is due for release in 2010, will be shown in 3-D, and has all the hallmarks of a massive box office hit.

Its director Tim Burton has already made his name on hit films, including Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands, which also starred A-listed Johnny Depp.

The pair have teamed up on numerous other major films, like the recent smash-hit Sweeney Todd. Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska, will play the part of Alice.

Justin Timberlake to Host 2009 Academy Awards?

Justin Timberlake to Host 2009 Academy Awards?The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has reportedly asked Justin Timberlake to host the Oscars. No doubt bosses were impressed with Timberlake’s wickedly funny and entertaining performance as the Master of Ceremonies for ESPN’s 2008 ESPY Awards. Members of the academy are apparently sure that the Grammy-winning song and dance man has what it takes to boost their sagging ratings for the 2009 show, and bring in younger viewers.

“They think Justin can reel in young viewers and make the show much more exciting,” an Academy snitch reveals to the National Enquirer. “Justin’s more than a singer-he’s a song-and-dance man…Justin does it all and he knows how to work a star-studded audience. Our first question was, Can we get him?”

Justin is reportedly excited by the idea, but given his tempermental nature, the Academy has also reached out to comedienne Tina Fey, to guage her interest.

Cyrus and her best buddy Mandy Jiroux (aka M&M Cru) have been engaged in a months-long YouTube dance-off with actor-dancer Adam Sevani (above) and his Step Up 2 director, Jon M. Chu (or ACDC). Sunday marks the final round of the fancy footwork battle.

"Will Smith is so cool," 15-year-old Sevani tells me today during a break from rehearsals. "I did the Kids Choice Awards with him, and he was just so cool. I wanted to use him for our [Teen Choice] performance, but I don't know if he's gonna be here."

Even without Mr. Jiggy, Sevani promises that the five-minute dance-off (each team has two and a half minutes to show their stuff) will be "history" in the making.

Why? Well, they've got a pretty good track record...

For their YouTube performances, ACDC recruited megawatt stars to make cameos, including Lindsay Lohan, Adam Sandler, Chris Brown, Amanda Bynes, Elijah Kelly, Hairspray director-choreographer Adam Shankman and even Diana Ross.

For its part, M&M started the celebrity guests with stars from the first Step Up movie Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan.

Come Sunday, anything—or anyone, for that matter—is possible. "They don't know what we're doing, and we don't know what they're doing," Sevani says. "They don't know what celebrities we're using, and we don't know which ones they're using."

A rather confident Sevani predicts, "We're going to just murder them—single-handedly!"

The winners, chosen by the audience, will take home one of the coveted surfboards.

Depending on how you look at it, Cyrus may or may not have an advantage over the guys because she's also going to be hosting the awards show. "I'm hosting alone," Cyrus told me earlier this week, "so I'm kind of nervous."

In the end, Sevani says, the dance-off is nothing more than a fun and friendly competition. "I want her crew to do good and the same with mine," he says. "I want everything to be good, so I can be like, 'Wow, that was amazing. We need more of that!' "

Hairspray's Nikki Blonsky, Father Arrested

Updated pic:


Hairspray's Nikki Blonsky and her father were arrested Wednesday after getting into a fight with a woman at Providenciales International Airport in Turks and Caicos.

A staffer at the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force confirmed their arrests to Usmagazine.com on Friday.

Nikki, 19, was charged with actual bodily harm; her father was charged with grievous bodily harm.

The fight broke out after a woman wanted to take one of their seats at the airport, a source at the Turks and Caicos Weekly News tells Us, but Blonsky's family allegedly refused to move their luggage.

The woman was so badly hurt, the source adds, that she was flown off the island to Miami.

America's Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden — whose family resides on the island — was also involved in the brawl. It is unclear what role she played.

Nikki — who is now in a neck brace — and Bianca went to court Friday morning, the source tells Us.

When photographers tried to take their picture, they covered their faces.

Nikki is due back in Magistrate court later this month.

Nikki's rep had no comment.

Brit Brit Is Not Doing Her Bodyguard

Brit Brit's manager has denied the rumor that she's bumping Cheeto flaps with her bodyguard. Larry Rudolph told Access Hollywood, There is no truth to this at all. Britney is 100% single.” Not 100%. Some of her heart still belongs to Frapp and Chester.

The bodyguard in question isn't even her bodyguard. Larry said that he's her "staff photographer." He's a photographer? This just confirms that she's letting him chew on her fish jerky.

What the hell does she need a staff photographer for anyway? Daddy Spears probably bought her one because she misses the paps so much. He follows her around the house all day while saying, "Britneeeeeey. You are sooo booootiful. Looking sexxxxaaaay." Every now and again she beats him with an umbrella or throws her homemade frapp at him for old times' sake.

New Pictures from the Broadway production of Equus



Richard Griffiths and Daniel Radcliffe, who starred in the London revival of Equus, are set to reprise their work in the upcoming Broadway production of Peter Shaffer's award-winning play.

Director Thea Sharrock again directs the production, which will arrive at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre Sept. 5. The show will open Sept. 25 for a strictly limited 22-week engagement through Feb. 8, 2009.

In Equus, "psychiatrist Martin Dysart (Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths) investigates the blinding of six horses, a savage act committed by a mild-mannered stable boy, Alan Strange (Daniel Radcliffe), whose home life is filled with bigotry and religious fervor," show notes explain. "As Dysart reveals the mysteries behind the boy's demons, he realizes he is confronting his own."

Joining Griffiths and Radcliffe in the Broadway production will be stage and screen actress Kate Mulgrew.

Here is a first look at the forthcoming Broadway stars:

TV entertainer John Barrowman will be taking home a merry pay packet when he plays Robin Hood in panto this Christmas - to the tune of an estimated £270,000 for a six-week run.

The star of BBC television's Torchwood and those mind-numbing musical casting shows on TV will command the record sum for 73 shows, often two a day, for £45,000 a week (which works out at more than £3,500 each time he steps on stage and slaps his thighs at the Birmingham Hippodrome).

Audrina Patridge in Six Degrees Magazine

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“Sure she’s a fan fave on the hit reality MTV show The Hills, but Audrina Patridge is as positively likeable off screen as she is on the small-screen. Born and raised in Yorba Linda, California, the 23-year-old is a laidback California girl at heart---and full of surprises. (Hello, she’s a natural blonde and checks her MySpace fan page.) When not filming The Hills, Patridge is all about her family, acting career and staying drama free. You’ve got to love that.”

"Hairspray" and "ANTM" Vacay Bitch Fight!

"Hairspray" star Nikki Blonsky and "America's Next Top Model" wannabeen Bianca Golden just had the worst vacation -- ever!

Cops tell us the two got into an "altercation" in the departure lounge at the Providenciales airport in the Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean -- and by altercation, we hear it was an all-out family brawl! A spy at the airport that day tells us the fight was over saving seats in the lounge -- Nikki was saving five seats for her fam, and Bianca's family wanted to sit. That's when we're told the huge fight erupted -- with the entire families on both sides throwing down, yelling and cursing.

The action got so bitchtastic, says another spy, that one member of the Golden team actually bit Nikki's foot. Tyra would be so proud!

Both divas have been charged with assault -- Blonsky with two counts! But get this -- Nikki's father Carl was also charged with inflicting bodily harm, for his alleged beatdown of Elaine Golden, Bianca's mom. Nikki's arrest was first reported by Us.

Both Nikki and Bianca have been released on bail, but Carl's gotta cool his heels in jail until August 8th. All parties will have to book a trip back to the islands this fall to appear in court.

The Movie Fanatic's Top 10 Hottest Young Actors

NOTE TO MODS: I think I've fixed the problem. (*crossing fingers*)

Sheer acting talent and international appeal. That's what matter the most in our top 50 young actors list. But being popular doesn't hurt either, so we have that covered too! While you might think being cast in a huge box hit will rank high, think again- we believe you need to be more than just a box office star to be considered an actor.

Collapse )

Just a brief respite from the endless stream of TDK/Bale posts. I'm actually quite pleased with this list, since I happen to have an enormous crush on nearly everyone mentioned-- though as far as talent goes, I'd probably replace Gaspard with Casey Affleck. And I'm still waiting for that remake of Strangers on a Train with Emile Hirsch and James McAvoy, one that should ideally be even more homoerotic than the first. So, ONTD -- who's missing from this list? And who would you kick off?

And is it some kind of unwritten rule that up-and-coming actors of a certain age have to sport ratty-looking facial hair to be taken seriously as an actor? Just wondering.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, during which he talks about his forthcoming roles on the HBO series Entourage and his Showtime programme Brotherhood, Jason Isaacs discusses the next role he has lined up, which will be playing Lucius Malfoy in the Deathly Hallows films next year.



"I wasn’t in six so it has been a long hiatus for me and I can’t wait to get back in that world," said Isaacs. "It is easy to get back into the mind of Lucius. I just put on the wig. The thing about that wig is that it is long and straight and the only way to get it straight is to tilt my head back and then I’m forced to look down my nose at people. And suddenly Lucius is back in town.”

Blind Items From Cosmopolitan Magazine

1. My first job in the fashion world was working as an assistant to a major stylist, whose clients included some of the biggest actresses in Hollywood. On one of my first days, we went to meet an A-lister, who is actually as talented as she is beautiful. Apparently, she's a little crazy, too. We needed to do a fitting for an upcoming red-carpet event, and as soon as we showed up, she just stripped off all her clothes in front of us and was walking around buck naked. Her body was flawless, but right after she put on the first dress, she had a total meltdown and started sobbing about how fat she was. My boss was trying to calm her down, but she wouldn't stop crying and kept muttering about all the blubber on her thighs and stomach. This went on for hours as she tried on dress after dress. It was so awkward! Finally, she found one she liked and pulled herself together. After we left, my boss told me that she does that every time they have a fitting.

Inside the flap of her CD jacket for Breakout, shone some sweet teen love from Miley to her Nickabee 'unknown other half'.


“And last but not least, my prince charming… You know who you are. Thank you for inspiring me for this record. I loved you then. I love you now, & I’ll love you always.”

Bernie Mac Hospitalized for Pneumonia


Bernie Mac was hospitalized in Chicago for pneumonia, his rep tells PEOPLE.

"Mr. Mac is responding well to treatment and will be released soon," his rep says in a statement. "He asked that his privacy and that of his family is respected while he gets well."

The rep says the pneumonia is not related to Mac's diagnosis of sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in organs such as the lungs or lymph nodes.

Mac, 50, has been in remission from sarcoidosis since 2005, when he announced he had been suffering from the disease for the previous two decades.
