Angelina Jolie, Bono and Nelson Mandela feature in Vogue-style Bible

The glossy coffee table tome, titled Bible Illuminated: The Book, is a bold attempt to capture the attention of modern readers.

Instead of following the usual Bible format - lots of words but somewhat lacking in celebrity portraits - Swedish ad man Dag Soderberg has decided to repackage it in the style of Vogue.

Passages are written out in a magazine-style format and accompanied by striking images. Jolie's picture is included alongside Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and U2 frontman Bono, to illustrate the importance of doing good deeds. They were selected after the publishers asked the Swedish public which famous figures in modern times represented goodness and compassion.

Jolie is a UN Goodwill Ambassador and noted humanitarian, donating millions of dollars to the poor through the charitable foundation that she set up with partner Brad Pitt.

Other images include a shirtless male model striding through the waves and a black-and-white close-up of a couple about to kiss.

The New Testament version of the book is published in the US at the end of this month and there are plans for a UK release in the coming months.

According to its publishers, when The Book was released in Sweden it accounted for a 50 per cent rise in the country's Bible sales for 2007. It was initially sold in fashion boutiques, art galleries and design stores before reaching bookshops.

Soderberg insists he is not particularly religious, explaining that his motivation is to make the Bible more accessible.

"Most people have issues with the Bible. They have never gotten into it. They don't find it accessible. But it's our history, our heritage. And for most of us, we relate to it more than we think. Religious or not, it shapes much of our moral codes," he said.

His goal is "to make a version of the Bible that people want to pick up, instead of hide away or just place on a bookshelf."


I don't even know what to say, so I'll just refer you to my icon.

The Year's 10 Most Valuable Faces.

We analyzed the newsstand sales the six biggest celebrity weeklies--People, Star, US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Life & Style and OK!--over a year-long period ending June 30, eliminating non-celebrity and "collage" covers as well as one-off cover subjects and special issues with exceptionally large rate bases. We then counted how many more--or fewer--issues the celebrity's cover sold as compared with the magazine's average newsstand sales. We also factored in the number of full covers a celebrity individually graced as well as his or her appeal, a measure provided by Los Angeles-based polling firm E-Poll Market Research. Stars were left off the list in rare cases when this "likability" data wasn't available.

Sean Connery AKA HBIC New Face of Louis Vuitton

In his younger days, in 1952, the 22-year-old Sean Connery was in such peak physical condition he happily stripped off to just a posing pouch as a life model for drawing classes at the Edinburgh College of Art.

The following year, proudly displaying the body that would later turn female fans weak at the knees, he came third in a Mr Universe competition.

These days, the former 007 Agent, who has just turned 78, prefers to go undercover.

The world’s most famous James Bond has returned to modelling for a special portrait by Annie Leibowitz, the American who photographed the Queen in March 2007 and who is widely regarded as the world’s top portrait photographer.

Sir Sean is pictured, at 10.07 one sunny morning, lounging on an old wooden jetty near his home in the Bahamas. He is wearing a Panama hat, long-sleeved, polo-neck sweater which reveals not an inch of torso and chinos rolled up to show just a glimpse of hairy leg. At his feet lies a waterproof version of the Louis Vuitton iconic ‘Keepall’ travel bag.

“There are journeys that turn into legends,” reads the tagline, referencing Louis Vuitton’s long history of association with exceptional people from Empress Eugénie to Ernest Hemingway and Audrey Hepburn.

Sir Sean is the latest in a distinguished line-up of world figures who have posed for Leibowitz to promote Louis Vuitton’s ‘Core Values’ campaign, which is benefiting The Climate Project, spearheaded by Al Gore.

Others include Andre Agassi and his wife Steffi Graf; Catherine Deneuve; the Rolling Stone Keith Richards; Sofia Coppola and her father Francis Ford Coppola; and Mikhail Gorbachev. In Gorbachev’s case, Louis Vuitton made its donation to Green Cross International, the environmental organization the former leader of the Soviet Union founded in 1993.

Question: "My future in-laws are coming for dinner. I want to impress them, but I work all day. Any suggestions for a delicious dish I can prepare in advance?"

~FABULOUS~ Answer: I remember when Jeffrey's parents came to visit us for the first time. It took me a week to get ready for them! Who has that kind of time now? Roasted shrimp with feta would be perfect for your dinner. You can prepare the entire dish in a sauté pan, refrigerate it, then throw it in the oven just before dinner. I even love the way it looks when I take the pan straight from the oven to the table. The earthiness of it just exudes confidence—and isn't that exactly what you'd like your future in-laws to think?

Angelina: Brad Convinced Me to Get Pregnant

Angelina Jolie says she had only intended to adopt children – until her love for Brad Pitt changed her mind.

"I think one of the life changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant. I never felt that it was the right thing to do," Jolie, 33, tells W magazine, in an article featuring photos taken by Pitt of her breastfeeding.

But when she saw Pitt, 44, with adopted children Maddox and Zahara, "I knew that he would never see them as different, and that gave me a certain peace," Jolie says.

"I suppose I just looked at him and loved him and just felt open to (getting pregnant)," she says. "I suddenly wanted to. It's one of those things you can't explain."

Now, after having three children with Pitt, including 3-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne and 2-year-old Shiloh, "I wouldn't trade that experience for the world," says Jolie. "It taught me a lot about life, just the process of it, and now we have three other beautiful children that wouldn't otherwise be here."

In the intimate W magazine pictures taken by Pitt just weeks after the twins' birth, Jolie bares her body – quite comfortably, she says.

"I'm with a man who's evolved enough to look at my body and see it as more beautiful, because of the journey it has taken and what it has created," she says. "He genuinely sees it that way. So I genuinely feel even sexier."

Jolie says she has "a lot of respect" for Pitt, who helps her "to be better and fight hard for the things that I love."

"I do think that I'm in a good partnership now," she says. "I think it just needed to be the right man."



I love a good gang rape but that's just me :(

"Austin Powers" Star Charged in Gang Rape

TMZ has learned the actor who played Random Task in the first "Austin Powers" movie has been charged with a vicious gang rape.

Joe Son's arrest has been all over newspapers in the O.C., but no one connected the dots -- that the suspect is actually Dr. Evil's henchman -- until now.

Here's how it all went down. Son pleaded guilty back in May to felony vandalism. The plea required him to fork over a DNA sample. Investigators ran his sample and found Son's DNA connected him to an unsolved gang rape back in 1990, where a woman was pistol-whipped, raped, threatened with death and eventually blindfolded and released naked.

Son has been charged with five felony counts of rape, two felony counts of forcible sodomy, two felony counts of sodomy in concert by force, seven felony counts of forcible oral copulation, and one felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object by force.

Son faces a maximum sentence of 275 years to life if convicted.

Guns N Roses will release their long-awaited new album, 'Chinese Democracy', on November 23 in the USA.

A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.

The album will be released on a Sunday in the States – ahead of the standard Tuesday album release date, reports Billboard.

Work on the album, which will be the band's first album since 1993's 'The Spaghetti Incident?' covers album, began back in 1994.

Guns N' Roses completed the album in June, at a rumoured cost of $30m.

Nine songs from 'Chinese Democracy' leaked shortly afterwards.

US-based Blogger Kevin Cogill was taken into custody by the FBI after being suspected of leaking the album.

Cogill has since appealed for funds to aid him in his legal battle.

Unfortunately, a bad decision on her part results in catastrophe and ultimately lands her in an institution for young women. After a year of hell, climaxing with an affair with a prison guard, she manages to escape and is finally on the road to freedom and finding herself. In her quest, she passes through a series of relationships, adventures and misfortunes which take her across America, in search of the life she dreams of."

The film is currently in negotiation with a US distributor, hopefully it'll get a set release date soon!

M. Ward for President


It's been a little over two years since M. Ward released his last solo album, Post War, but the singer/songwriter/producer has been anything but idle in the interim. He's released an EP, lent his guitar, voice and/or production skills to more than a few artists covered in Paste, contributed to a trio of film soundtracks, made his acting debut, and become a world-famous pronoun, alongside Zooey Deschanel.

That's all well and good, but M. Ward fans want another solo record. And they want it to come out in February 2009. And they want it to be called Hold Time. Turns out, these fans are in luck.

"I just finished a record that's going to be out in February," Ward tells Paste. "It's called Hold Time. I'm excited for people to hear it. I tried a new balance on this new record. It's a little hard to explain. There's a lot of really big and heavy sounds that I attempted to balance with sounds that you can find in any guitar shop."

"It's such a great album," gushes his She & Him bandmate Deschanel. "I think it's my favorite album... ever."

Ward also confirmed that a She & Him Volume Two is in the works and that "Zooey has about a gazillion brand new awesome songs. All we know about Volume Two is that it's going to be twice as good as Volume One."

As far as the M. Ward/Conor Oberst/Jim James album currently in the works, Ward says it's progressing "very slowly but very surely. I imagine it'll be out in 2010 or 2011 at the glacial pace that we're getting the chance to work together. But I believe in the power of the passing of time to give you a clear vision of what's going to last and what was created in the whimsy of the moment."

"It doesn't have a name or anything except for ideas and enthusiasm and [our] hearts," he continues. "We're very excited about it, but it's off in the distance. Conor put a record out a few months ago. Jim James is still on tour. I'm putting a record out in February. It's a trick, but when we do stuff together it's a blast. It's a complete collaboration. Mike Mogis is in there. It could all change at any second. We don't have any finished songs, but we've been touring together off and on over the last four years. It's exciting to take it to the next step."


I'm so excited for every single piece of information in this article.

Black Eyed Peas Album Nears 'The E.N.D.'

The Black Eyed Peas are due to complete their fifth album, "The E.N.D.," in London next week. "I'll be finishing the record Oct. 15," producer and group member will.i.am tells Billboard.com. Recording sessions have been taking place at Metropolis Studios in London.

The album title is not an indication that it's intended to be the hip-hop outfit's final record. "No, no -- it stands for 'The Energy Never Dies,'" explains will.i.am.

Black Eyed Peas' previous set, 2005's "Monkey Business" (A&M/Interscope), has sold 4.2 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. "We still have a contract with them," says will.i.am, adding that the number of albums left to deliver was "not that many."

Romano, an Emmy nominee for her performance in the title role of the animated Disney series "Kim Possible," is scheduled to stay with the award-winning Jeff Marx-Robert Lopez musical through Nov. 23. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of chatting with the good-spirited Romano, who has been performing since she was six years old; that interview follows.

Diane Lane interview

Described by Olivier as the new Grace Kelly when she was 14, Diane Lane always seemed fated to remain the best actress who never quite made it. Until, that is, she was nominated for an Oscar, and smouldering lead roles started to flood in. She talks to Strawberry Saroyan (?!) about life as a fortysomething sex symbol.

Diane Lane is dangling an iridescent gold mesh thong from her ring finger. We are sitting in a French pastry shop in Beverly Hills, and she has been searching for a piece of chewing-gum in her handbag - when out this pops. 'See, these are the things that get me in trouble,' she says with a laugh. 'It's called being a working mom. You're constantly changing clothes. You go to the gym or you're trying on a ball-gown and it's, like, "That's uncomfortable. I'm not going to wear that all day!"'

Rupert Everett to Make Broadway Debut Opposite Ebersole in Blithe Spirit


Rupert Everett has been cast alongside Christine Ebersole in the spring Broadway revival of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit,
according to The New York Times. The revival, directed by Michael Blakemore, will mark his Broadway debut. 


In the popular comedy, Everett will play Charles Condomine, an author who hires an eccentric medium to perform a seance at his home during a party in order to seek material for an expose he's planning on psychics. Unbeknownst to his wife Condomine, the psychic winds up summoning the spirit of Elvira (Ebersole), Charles first wife, who has plans to get revenge on her former husband.


Everett got his start on the stage, appearing in Another Country in the West End and studying at the Glascow Citizens Theatre, where he appeared in Don Juan, A Waste of Time, Heartbreak House, The Vortex, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Private Lives and The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here. He became a promising screen star with the film version of Another Country and famously played best gay friend to Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding and Madonna in The Next Best Thing. Other notable films include The Madness of King George, Shakespeare in Love, An Ideal Husband, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Importance of Being Earnest, Stage Beauty, Shrek 2, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Stardust and Shrek the Third. One of Hollywood's first openly gay leading men, Everett penned a revealing memoir, Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins in 2006 and also was the author of the novel Hello Darling, Are You Working?


Blithe Spirit will start performances on February 26, 2009 and open in March at a Shubert theater to be announced.

Audrina Patridge: "I Got Picked On" in School!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Audrina Patridge wasn't a hit with the girls in high school.

"I got picked on," the L.A. native, 23, tells Fox News. "Girls were always rude and catty to my sister and I. They will say anything to put you down and make themselves feel better."

Their beef with Patridge: She had guy friends.

"Girls didn't like it, so they would call me names and spread terrible rumors," she says. "You just have to hold your chin up and take it as a compliment that certain people dedicate that much time and effort to talk about you. I don't think I'll ever stop experiencing that. I have just gotten better at understanding and dealing with it."

In school, The Hills star says, "I I was committed to doing well. I took a few semesters of college with child psychology in mind, but eventually dropped out and moved to L.A. to pursue my dreams to model and act.

She says "people are always surprised" that she is on a hit reality show "because I was on the shy side when I was younger.

"People assume they know me from what they see in the media and on television: that I am just full of blank stares and another painted face in Hollywood, riding that 15 minutes of fame on a reality show," she says. "It's hard to be judged when the public is only seeing a teeny tiny bit of what I am all about. I love music, my family and my friends with everything I have, and I am very dedicated to my dreams."

Oricon Charts: NEWS gets their 12th consecutive number one

Singer-songwriter Mariya Takeuchi topped the album charts this week with her three-disc best collection "Expressions," which sold 305,000 copies. Takeuchi debuted 29 years and 11 months ago, which is a record among female artists for the longest career at the time of a #1 album. Yumi Matsutoya set the previous record seven years ago with a career of 29 years and 5 months.

Besides the British band Oasis at #2, the only new studio album in the top ten was Spontania's "MUSIC" at the #10 spot.

On the singles chart, boy band NEWS celebrated at #1 with their "Happy Birthday," pushing 201,000 copies. Nana Mizuki landed at #2 with her "Trickster," though it was far behind at 57,000 copies. Kiyoshi Hikawa entered the charts at #4, while the Kou Shibasaki and Masaharu Fukuyama collaboration KOH+ landed at #5.

BAReeeeeeeeeeN, the new unit formed from GReeeeeN and BACK-ON, saw their first single reach #7. Aqua Timez was right behind them at #8, and the solo comeback release by ASKA (of CHAGE and ASKA) rounded out the charts at #10.

Lynn Spears is still a K-fed fan

Despite her daughter Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline having gone through a pretty messy public divorce, Lynne Spears says she's a fan of K-Fed.

"I do like Kevin," Lynne Spears says in an interview on US TV programme The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, although she admits she had her "reservations" about Kevin when he and Brit first started dating.

"He's been good to us. He's included (Britney's dad) Jamie and I," she said. "He could have been a real pill about a lot of things, but he wasn't. He worked with us, and I think he's tried to make things good for the boys (Preston, three, and Jayden, two)."

Lynne, who has just written her memoir, Through the Storm, says she hopes her children Jamie Lynn and Britney have put their troubles behind them.

"I just really hope they find their purpose in life and that it's really going to fulfil them to their full potential," she said.


This newspaper also claims Brit is begging K-fed for a daughter. Haha, doubtful

Model Casting

The Hills star is about to debut her second collection at L.A.'s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and her show is one of the most anticipated. So much goes into getting a show together and we asked Lauren to document it all with an Olympus Stylus camera. One of the tasks on her to-do list is picking models. They held two four-hour casting sessions at the house of her creative director, Sherry Wood. "We were looking for models with a great walk and a young fresh look," says Lauren. "We saw so many great girls. It was a really successful casting."

Shopping for Flowers

"Flowers!" exclaims Lauren of all the appliques she hunted for. "Sherry and I went to Michael Levine, which is a great fabric store in the fashion district in downtown L.A., to look for flowers that work with the colors in the line. We incorporated a floral print into the Spring collection so I wanted to use flowers in the overall look of the runway show. I have been seeing so many floral head pieces on the runway lately and I love it. I also wanted different types of the flowers that could be bunched together."

William Petersen's Long Goodbye to CSI

For eight seasons, CSI (returning Thursday, Oct. 9 at 9 pm/ET, CBS) has seen more than its share of stabbings, shootings, stranglings and poisonings. But the real crime is what's about to happen this year: The longtime hit's star, William Petersen, is about to exit the series. Word came this summer that his character, Gil Grissom, will be replaced by a new CSI, played by Laurence Fishburne. As the countdown begins for Petersen's last 10 episodes, we sat down with him and longtime costar Marg Helgenberger (who plays colleague Catherine Willows) to reminisce about their days together and ponder their futures apart.

'CSI' season premiere: Goodbye, Warrick Brown!

The cynics among us would probably argue that dogged TV reporters have taken away the element of surprise that used to come with CSI. Thanks to our own scooperman Mike Ausiello, we already knew that Gary Dourdan's Warrick Brown was going to be history long before his departure finally played out in last night's season premiere, or that Jorja Fox would briefly reprise her role as Sara Sidle in preparation for Billy Petersen's much-anticipated exit as Gil Grissom. But those cynics would be wrong. There was no way to foretell how much Gil's anguish over Warrick's death would truly move us, or whether the sight of him clutching his runaway fiancee (where you been, Sara?) would give us hope that these two complicated souls might just see better days ahead. Cut the crap, Emmy voters -- what more does this show have to do to get your damn respect?

Source 1, Source 2

So, what did y'all think of the premiere? How should Grissom leave the show? What are your thoughts on a CSI movie? This episode was so sad, but still really well done. I was really excited to see Sara back, as I stopped watching the show when she left, and I thought all of the actors did a remarkably good job, from the main ones like William Peterson, Marg Helgenberger, and George Eads right down to the actors playing the regular lab techs and other guest stars. It really is a shame that shows like CSI will never be recognized at awards shows, because it really deserves to. Despite all of the spinoffs, original recipe is still the best version of CSI, and IMO has stayed surprisingly solid throughout its run, despite being in its 9th (!) season. As for how Grissom should leave, IDK, I want him to go to San Francisco with Sara or something, but that's the shipper in me. And I LOVE the idea of a CSI movie. I think that's a really cool idea, and if they get all or most of the original cast, it would probably do really well in the box office.

Hello fans… I am very sorry to announce that we posted an interview from One Magazine here did not happen. I have been informed that NOTHING said in the interview was ever said by the band, including the Tom Kaulitz comments about Miley Cyrus. I am sorry that we posted something that was so erroneous but am glad to be able to correct the error. Apologies from Tokio Hotel America to the band for any part we played in spreading a bad interview.

Oasis: Let's acknowledge it's a rip-off

A lot of Oasis naysayers get hung up on originality.

OK, let's all admit that Oasis is the Puff Daddy of rock bands. Like the hip-hop impresario, the quintet from Manchester, England, appropriates sounds, lyrics and ideas from giant hit makers of the past (most notably the Beatles) and turns them into new anthems for a generation that doesn't know or doesn't care whom Noel and Liam Gallagher are ripping off. They've been sued successfully by artists such as Neil Innes and the New Seekers for stealing melodies, but so what? Every band rips off somebody else to some degree; Oasis just happens to be pilfering from the biggest rock band of all time.

Oasis has bigger problems than a lack of originality on its seventh album, "Dig Out Your Soul" (Reprise).

Top 25 Protest Songs Ever

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Everybody seems to be talking politics these days.

So why is it, then, that nobody seems to be singing about them? Pop musicians, the people who have traditional offered up songs of commentary and criticism about the times in which we live, have clearly dropped the ball during this important election year.

Thus, in lieu of having a new batch of socially conscious anthems in 2008, we've decided to borrow from years past with a look at the 25 greatest political/protest songs of all time.

In compiling this list, we looked at several factors — the least significant of which, we should point out, was whether we agreed with the commentary. More important were a song's original impact on its audience and whether the tune is still worth listening to today.

Also, we didn't want to come up with a list of, say, 25 Bob Dylan tunes. Thus, we made the important restriction that each artist could appear only once on our tally.

Paris Hilton fails as a DJ

Paris Hilton has annoyed Bryan Ferry with her DJing skills.

Paris, who took to the decks at London's new Jalouse club after model Daisy Lowe pulled out of her scheduled set, irritated the Roxy Music frontman with her mix of hardcore techno tracks.

Bryan, 63, became so angry with her record choices, he and his two sons Tara and Merlin moved as far away from the DJ booth as possible.

An onlooker said: "Bryan looked very suave. He was wearing a smart suit, Oxford blue shirt and a pullover. He arrived with Tara and Merlin after 11pm and they all went off to mingle.

"But then Paris got up on the decks and started playing really hardcore techno music. You could see the look of displeasure on Bryan's face and he quickly moved away from the DJ booth.

"He found his sons, took them to the other side of the club and they all seemed to have a really in-depth talk, probably trying to drown out Paris."


Madonna gives strict orders to artists not to approach her

Madonna, who is currently on her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour, has allegedly handed out strict orders asking the managing crew not to let her support acts approach her.

The 'Material' girl is said to have refused to mingle with artists who open her tour's European leg, reports China Daily.

Swedish pop singer Robyn, who performed before the Queen of Pop, revealed that the crew had conveyed them the orders not to speak to the pop singer or ask for autographs and photos.

'With Every Heartbeat' singer said: "I hadn't expected any glamour, but it's strange that they assume that the first thing you're going to do is run after Madonna and ask for an autograph."

Robyn further revealed that she hadn't even met the superstar and would hate to be in her shoes.

She added to a Swedish newspaper: "My worst nightmare would be to turn into a Madonna because of her constant chasing of the latest trends.

"As an artist I do not want to be someone who does not feel safe in the creative process."

Vanessa Hudgens uncomfortable in "revealing" outfit

Teen actress Vanessa Hudgens thought she looked immodest in her black outfit at the London premiere of her film "High School Musical 3" because it was too revealing.

Vanessa was overheard complaining to her boyfriend and co-star Zac Efron that her back was being exposed and visible to the fans present, reports The Sun.

A source said: "Vanessa arrived wearing a leather jacket but was asked to take it off for a couple of photos. She then told Zac that she was concerned about the length of her mini dress because her 'butt was hanging out' and wanted the leather jacket back immediately to protect her modesty.

"Zac tried to tell her she would look like a dork wearing the jacket inside, but Vanessa wasn't having it and demanded someone fetch it for her."

Vanessa tried not to let the ordeal ruin her evening and was later spotted cosying up to her boyfriend to watch the film.

Christina Applegate Is 'Ready to Hug Again'

Applegate Is 'Ready to Hug Again'

Christina Applegate has been bravely outspoken about her battle with breast cancer. But, the Samantha Who? star reveals, she wasn't always so forthcoming.

"I went back to work for about five weeks right after the second surgery," Applegate tells Ellen DeGeneres on Friday's show. She adds, "I didn't tell anyone [about the diagnosis]."

Actually, she did share the news with a few members of her inner circle.

"I told my make-up and hair people and people that are really close to me ...," she explains. "I had a protection wall [on set], so that no one was pushing me."

The 36-year-old was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer earlier this year. She is now cancer free after undergoing a double mastectomy.

She and DeGeneres recently bonded at the Stand Up to Cancer fund-raiser. (The event also featured fellow cancer sufferer Patrick Swayze and megastars like Jennifer Aniston.)

"[I'm feeling] so much better than the last time I saw you," she tells the talk show host. "I was really ... afraid of people hugging me. People are really huggy at those things."

"I apologize," DeGeneres says. "I hugged you."

But these days, Applegate inists, "I'm good. I'll grab ya."

DeGeneres responds with a promise: "I'm going to hug you a bunch during this commercial break."

Benji washes Paris' hair. They're very close.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Paris Hilton has to draw the BFF line somewhere.

The heiress - and Nicole Richie pal - says she won't change Harlow's diapers.

"Nicole is, like, the best mother. She's so hands on, so she does that," Hilton says on the Oct. 13 episode of The Tyra Banks show (check local listings). "I’ve never changed anyone’s diapers."

Hilton says she and beau Benji Madden have some time before they have a baby of their own.

For now, they like to spice things up. "Sometimes," she tells Banks, they take baths together.

"If we take a bath together, he’ll wash my hair," Hilton says. "We’re very close."

She says Madden first asked her out at Richie's mom's house.

"That was our date, and we played with Harlow, played music in the studio, and then we ended up going to see a movie and then from there..." says Hilton, who calls Madden "baby love."

Hilton also talks about her "baby voice," which she says she speaks in "when I get shy ... I've been doing it since I was a teenager, and I’m kinda trying to grow out of it now."

As for her new MTV reality show, Hilton says, "I just thought I would have a lot of fun to meet people who are not from Hollywood, not all jaded...."

More than 30,000 tried out for the show and "some had to pass a psych test - and some of them didn't," she says.

So what does Hilton look for in a BFF?

"Someone I can trust," she says. "I've been hurt in the past. I just want someone who's not using me. Someone who really wants to be my friend for the right reason."

The Womanizer video will be premiering on 20/20 TONIGHT on ABC. We know this. But the full video will not be shown until the very end of the program- meaning you'll be watching old people talk about old people for a full hour if you tune in right at 10PM EST. So don't watch until the end, unless you want to be extra cautious.. but even if you do miss it, The DIRECTORS CUT of the video will be premiering on BRITNEY.COM immediately following the 20/20 broadcast. What does that mean? I'll tell you. It means this version will be more, longer, sexier. We can never have enough Britney! I sure as hell can't

HSM Stars Spill the Dirt

HSM Stars Spill the Dirt
As they say goodbye to their onscreen alter egos, the cast of the High School Musical movies talks to PEOPLE about the past three years together – and dish on their real feelings for each other.

Like did you know Ashley Tisdale used to hate her HSM co-star Lucas Grabeel?

"We would hardly talk to each other," Tisdale, 23, says. "When I was auditioning for [mean girl] Sharpay, I screen-tested with him and I was acting like Sharpay. I think he was like, 'Who is this girl telling me what to do?'"

No worries, though. The two hit it off eventually and now treat each other like real-life siblings. In fact, the six stars say they have all grown into a real family onset.

Of course, Zac Efron, 20, and Vanessa Hudgens, 19, have their own special relationship. The two, who are dating in real life, said they may not be done making movies together.

"No one says it's the last time," Hudgens said. "Who knows what the future will bring?"

Meagan Good: Good & Plenty

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
From the perch of a penthouse loft overlooking downtown Los Angeles, 27-year-old actress Meagan Good candidly reflects on her evolution from child actress to teen idol and now to scream queen. The talented, stunningly beautiful California native has, in her considerable career, amassed a broad resume of television and movie credits, so there’s much to consider. TV apperances have included The Steve Harvey Show and House, and her film roles have been similarly diverse, Biker Boyz, D.E.B.S., You Got Served, Roll Bounce, Waist Deep, Stomp the Yard and The Love Guru are but a few.

The “scream queen” title is new. It stems from Good’s parts in two marquee horror films: Saw V (scheduled for a highly anticipated October 24 release) and The Unborn (due out next year), which is directed by David S. Goyer, who penned the Blade franchise and co-wrote the story of The Dark Knight.

In Saw V, Good plays a character named Luba, but she’s mum about any plot details. The script is shrouded in secrecy, and the filmmakers shot several endings. As in the previous four films, the vicious serial killer Jigsaw tests his victims’ wills to live through a series of complex and gruesome death traps. Good endured torturous contraptions take after take. Some setups were so dangerous that paramedics were standing by on the set, but Good was up for the challenge. “Meagan brought combination of talent, dedication and personality to the character,” recalls the film’s director David Hackl. “No matter how uncomfortable the scene, Meagan was always ready to go for another take.”

By definition, a scream queen is a nubile, attractive actress who gains commercial notoriety by appearing in a horror film as a damsel in distress. Although such roles are considered lowbrow, Good is in fine company as she joins the ranks of Jamie Lee Curtis, Sissy Spacek and Sara Michelle Gellar. “I love horror movies,” Good declares. “The Halloween movies inspired me to be an actress. I wanted to be the girl being chased and running from something horrible.”

This sentiment may be unexpected from a young African-American actress but Meagan is anything but predictable. “I want to play roles that people wouldnt expect to see me in,” she says. “At the end of the day, I’m no sex kitten. Sometimes I’m downright corny.”

Magic Johnson outraged after HIV-faking accusation

Former National Basketball Association star Magic Johnson was outraged Friday after two Minnesota radio talk show hosts accused him of faking that he had contracted HIV, which can lead to AIDS.

Chris Baker and Langdon Perry of station KTLK questioned whether or not Hall of Fame hero Johnson, who led the Los Angeles Lakers' "Showtime" dynasty of the 1980s, was being truthful when he disclosed in 1991 that he had contracted HIV.

"Magic faked AIDS," Perry said.

"You think Magic faked AIDS for sympathy?" Baker replied.

"I'm convinced that Magic faked AIDS," Perry said.

"Yeah, me too," Baker said.

"I'm not sure why," Perry added. "But I'm pretty sure he faked AIDS. Because he's the only cured AIDS guy ever."

Jason Statham Likes Musicals and Dancing - Who Knew?

Statham Hooked on Reality Dance Show

Movie hardman Jason Statham has shattered his tough guy image by confessing he is addicted to U.S. reality TV show So You Think You Can Dance?

The Snatch actor has built his image on his hard reputation, but admits that he likes nothing better than watching the dance competition.

He says, "I've been hooked on So You Think You Can Dance?"

And although Statham would never consider going on a reality show, he would like to dabble in dancing - because he enjoyed watching musicals when he was younger.

He adds, "(But) It would be nice to do a little tango or a little rock 'n' roll jive. I love all the great musicals - West Side Story, Singin' In The Rain. My mum and dad were fanatical about those. I've seen those films many times.

"On The Town, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Donald O' Connor, Cyd Charisse. Brilliant. Great music, great physical drama. I love all that, very expressive."

Pop Quiz: Duffy

Aidin Vaziri
Friday, October 10, 2008

At first people thought Aimee Duffy was a bit like Amy Winehouse, only without all the interesting tattoos and bloody clothes. But with her first album, "Rockferry," the petite singer from a remote Welsh village (who goes by her last name) has become Britain's best-selling artist of the year while handily conquering America with torchy, retro-soul singles such as "Mercy" and "Warwick Avenue." She's already been on the cover of Spin, a musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" and a regular on VH1's weekly video countdown. Today, Duffy, 24, plays Alice's Now and Zen festival with Sara Bareilles, Gavin DeGraw and Sugar Ray at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park.

Q: You're always wearing short dresses. Are there any good revealing pictures of you on the Internet?

A: Lucky for me, that hasn't happened. I was in a photo shoot and I was lying in bed and the assistant photographer was prettying up the sheets around me and he pulled the sheets down and they got way more than I wanted. So there could be some emerging.

Q: That's great news.

A: I don't think my mom will be happy.

Q: Is your mom generally concerned about your dress length?

A: No, she's terrible. She's worse than me. She tells me to go more sexy. In the beginning, I was quite nervous and I was quite prudish. She would say, "You know, you're dressing like a Sunday-school teacher. Go out and show those good legs of yours!" My skirts have gotten shorter with confidence. I hope they don't go any shorter now because I feel I'm at a good point of confidence. She's quite pleased that I'm acting my age. I sometimes can act a little older than I am. When my sister would go out and buy a leather jacket, I would go out and buy a woolen cardigan.

Julie Taymor is gathering a cast ranging from blue-blooded Oscar winners to up-and-comers for her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" that, in a gender-defying twist, will see Helen Mirren reigning over the magical island.

Although the play centers on Prospero, an exiled duke-turned-sorcerer, Taymor -- who likes to take an experimental approach to her stage and film projects -- has rechristened the lead character Prospera so that Mirren can take on the role.

Mirren will be surrounded by Jeremy Irons, Djimon Hounsou, Russell Brand, Alfred Molina, Ben Wishaw and Felicity Jones. Geoffrey Rush is in negotiations to join the cast.

Brad Pitt Goes Back to Work – in Germany

Just days after going to New Orleans with Angelina Jolie and the kids to visit the site of his environmentally friendly housing project Make it Right, Brad Pitt on Friday headed to the set of his new World War II drama Inglorious Bastards in Germany.

Pitt, 44, who plays Lt. Aldo Raine in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film, will be shooting in two locations outside Berlin: at a period farmhouse in a village outside of Dresden and in the spa town Bad Schandau.

Jolie, 33, and the couple's children – who visited New York last week for the premiere of Jolie's movie Changeling – are expected to leave the French chateau where the family has been living since May and join Pitt in Berlin

Why I'm running the New York City Marathon

A couple of years ago, I walked uptown to Central Park on one of those perfect November days. The air had a bite to it while the sun shone bright. It was the day of the New York Marathon and I thought it might be fun to watch the runners nearing the finish line. So, I joined the crowd about a half-mile before the race's end at Tavern On The Green.

With my arms resting on the cold cordon, I saw an incredible spectacle of people pushed to the very brink of collapse. I expected exhaustion, but what I didn't expect was to see just how much these runners had to EARN their prize. It was emotional. The pain was etched into their faces so deeply, you'd swear they'd spend the next 3 weeks looking like Abe Vigoda. I saw guys coming in to finish with bleeding nipples. Why in the hell were their nipples bleeding? People were crying. People were limping, hobbling, screaming, crawling.

But most importantly, people were experiencing a sublime rapture that I couldn't even hope to understand. They were touching something magical no stalk-still mortal simply watching the race could comprehend. These people had accomplished something real. At that moment, with all the energy, inspiration and passion swirling through the crisp autumnal air, I breathed in deeply and decided something: I'd never fucking do that ever, ever. What in the fuck were these idiots thinking? Bleeding nipples. Bleeding. Nipples.

Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes — FIRST PICTURES

Here are the very first pictures of Robert Downey Jr. filming Sherlock Holmes on Friday, currently filming in Central London.

When asked what he could bring to a character portrayed countless times on film and television, RDJ has joked: “Clearly I’m going to do it better than it’s ever been done. The more I read about it the more overwhelmed I was by the weight of it and the amount of people who will be watching to see if it’s gotten right.”

Check out the pictures below–it looks like RDJ and his stunt double are conferring with each other on how to jump off the building they’re standing on. Also pictured: director Guy Ritchie.

Selenita wants to Rawk n Roll All Night

Selena Gomez is super busy right now promoting her debut album. However, the teen beauty does not want to go single and is going to be part of a band. Sel said the album will have pop and rock tunes, and she plans to play instruments on some of the tracks.

‘I want to make music that is basically of fun and that parent and kids can jump around and have a good time to share. I will be singing and I’m fast learning drums and electric guitars. I would like to try it and kind of switch it up. When I do the tour and stuff, I would like to do maybe a section on the piano or on guitar or on drums.’

Selena does not want to imitate anyone’s style: ‘The Jonas Brothers and people like Demi Lovato are special friends to me and I will not be doing or copy what they did.’

On her song ‘I’m Sorry’ that is rumored to be about boyfriend Nick Jonas: It’s about a boy I kind of fell for, but he couldn’t let his ex-girlfriend go, and it was really difficult. The song is basically me saying that I’m sorry that it didn’t work out or that she used to be who she was. But you have to let me in and you have to know that I’ll do everything I can to make you happy and be the best I can be.’

This will be the only ballad song in her album. I want the other stuff to be really fun. But that is probably going to be the most heartfelt one because it was the hardest time for me. That story actually happened to me.’
