So, when the world ends
Will God go down with it?

The Evolution of TV Love

Photobucket

1950S: BUTTONED-UP AND TRADITIONAL – MOSTLY
GENERAL VALUES

The ‘50s were a time when conventionality was still the norm, though some guy named Elvis Presley was starting to cause a few ripples. And the same was true on the tube. The traditional family got a tiny twist with Lucy and Ricky (Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz) on I Love Lucy, who were without child till Little Ricky. But for the most part, mother, father, 2.2 kids, and their dog were standard. See: Leave It To Beaver and The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet.

ICONIC COUPLE: LUCY AND RICKY RICARDO
Like most wives in the ‘50s, Lucy stayed home while hubby Ricky went to work. But unlike most wives – and perhaps reflecting women’s underlying desires – Lucy got up to all kinds of mischief and would do anything to share the spotlight with Ricky.

Their relationship was tumultuous, on screen and off. And inevitably Ricky would scold “Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do!” But by episode’s end, they’d always make up and realize how much they loved each other. And they all lived happily ever after. Just like TV audiences wanted them to.

DATING & MARRIAGE
Everything was über-traditional, with established roles for men and women and standard courtships. Sex before marriage was out of the question. Notoriously, married couples on ‘50s TV slept in separate beds for decency’s sake.

On I Love Lucy, neighbours Fred and Ethel were the first to sleep together – kind of. On the Jan. 17, 1955 episode called "First Stop", the two tried to navigate their way through a sagging mattress and soon were seen wriggling in bed together. Ozzie and Harriet also eventually slept in the same bed. Scandalous!

UNCONVENTIONAL ROMANCE
Because I Love Lucy became such a classic TV show, we never really think about Lucy and Ricky being an interracial couple (she was white; he was from Cuba). But at the time, pre-Civil Rights, it was cause for controversy.

There was also an early example of a stereotypical homosexual-type character in the ‘50s: Percy Dovetonsils on The Ernie Kovacs Show (played by Kovacs himself). Percy was effeminate, silly, lisping poet who puffed on cigarettes through a long black cigarette holder.

Collapse )


Who's everybody's favourite TV couples?
edit: I CANNOT BELIEVE I FORGOT LUCILLE II AND BUSTER. They are such an OTP, even if I enjoyed GOB + Lucille II.
Besides Lucky and Ricky, I loved Christopher and Adriana on The Sopranos (I was SO sad when she died).

What about least favourite?
I love Larry David, but I cannot stand his wife Cheryl, on Curb Your Enthusiasm. She's always gotta bring him down. Same with Deb and Ray on Everybody Loves Raymond, but I hate that show anyways so what does it really matter.

Don Cheadle Replaces Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2

Marvel Studios has hired Don Cheadle to replace Terrence Howard in the upcoming Iron Man sequel. Cheadle will play Jim Rhodes, Tony Stark’s best friend and future War Machine. Director Jon Favreau has made numerous hints that War Machine may play a part in the second film. The Hollywood Reporter’s sources claim it was a conflict due to financial differences.

Earlier this year it was widely speculated that Marvel was trying to low ball Favreau with an offer not much higher than his initial payday for the first film. It is not unusual for salaries to double for a sequel, especially when the first film outperformed to the level that Iron Man had. But from what I understand, Marvel believes the superhero characters themselves are the real stars, and many believe they are being very thrifty in their negotiations for their future projects.

stream bjork's new single (ft. thom yorke!)

New Music: Björk [ft. Thom Yorke]: "Nattura" [Stream]

Last week Pitchfork news reported on the new Björk single "Nattura", which features Thom Yorke on backing vocals and which was recorded to help protect the Icelandic environment. According to text on the promo, the song "highlights a grass roots movement in Iceland to reclaim the country’s natural resources and wilderness from the hands of big business and pollution." Someone has uploaded the song to YouTube, which of course means that it may not be the final version and could disappear at any time.

"Nattura" is described as "more of a protest and rallying cry than a lecture," and the aggressive drums and Björk's piercing vocals certainly bear that out. The only other sound heard, practically, is what would seem to be Yorke's voice, distinctive but certainly heavily processed as it floats in the background. It's a pulse-quickening song that flies by in three and a half minutes.


As reported earlier, "Nattura" shares its name with the website Nattura.info, a gathering place for the Icelandic environmental movement, and you can read more about Björk's thoughts on Nattura here.

Cheryl Cole: 'Sex is Better Than Money'



Cheryl Cole says sex with her husband is better than money.

The Girls Aloud singer, 25, is married to British soccer star Ashley Cole.

And she insists a night under the sheets with her man is more satisfying than an impressive bank balance.

She says, "We tackle each other in the bedroom and he loves me massaging his feet.

"Sex with Ashley is more important to me than all the money in the world.

"Sex makes me happy, money doesn't. And Ashley makes me feel sexy, he's fantastic."

In the latest Hollywood bizarro pairing, Barker's ex and the alleged photog basher got cozy at a L.A. club last night.

Amy Lee performed Sally's Song on the Tonight Show review



Monday morning came and it was easy to see who the die hard Evanescence/Amy Lee/Nightmare Before Christmas fans were due to the clothing, if it wasn't an Evanescence shirt it was Nightmare Before Christmas Hoodie. Sadly, less than 10 actual Fans were only there to see Amy, everyone else gave a “Who’s that?”, “I don’t know who she is” when Amy Lee of Evanescence was mentioned by us which was probably due to the fact that the crowd was full of an older audience...

Rufus Sewell talks "Eleventh Hour"



Rufus Sewell may be best known for portraying aristocratic hotheads in movies like A Knight's Tale and The Illusionist, but the British actor sounds like he's happy to trade villainous intensity for a new role as a crime-fighting man of science.

In "Eleventh Hour," which premieres Thursday on CBS, Sewell plays it cool as biophysicist Jacob Hood. The show is yet another British miniseries retooled for an American audience: Jerry Bruckheimer's U.S. version of Eleventh Hour casts Sewell as a special consultant to the FBI who helps agent Rachel Young (Marley Shelton) solve crimes involving cloning, cryogenics and other strange cases based on actual science.

Holly Bowls for Boobies

1-5bd.jpg


Making a difference for their fellow ladies, Holly Madison and Jayde Nicole were spotted having a blast at the 4th Annual Bowling for Boobies fundraiser presented by the Busted Foundation.

The Playboy Playmates converged on Lucky Strike Lanes last night (October 13) looking fit and fine in their matching pink bowling shirts, knee socks and bowling shoes.

As for Miss Madison’s recent breakup with Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, she told press that he is still the love of her life. “Ya absolutely. I think it’s very sweet of him to say that and I think, I wish him well in his dating, and I hope he just takes time to get to know girls and makes right choices.”

And she even approves of Hef’s new girlfriends, twin 19-year-olds Kristina and Karissa Shannon. “Ya, I worked with them this summer on their playmate layout. Their upcoming playmates so I directed their pictorial and I just want Hef to be happy and have fun.”

Oasis' Noel Gallagher slams 'The X Factor'

'Danni Minogue wouldn't know talent if it kicked her in the arse'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Oasis' Noel Gallagher has slammed reality TV show 'The X Factor' – but has defended the contestants who take part in the show.

The guitarist singled out TV judge Dannii Minogue for criticism, suggesting she was unqualified to identify talent among contestants.

He told the Radio Times that 'The X Factor' had "absolutely nothing to do with music and everything to do with television".

He added that he didn't blame contestants for wanting their shot at fame.

"If somebody is dangling this carrot of 'fame and fortune' in front of a checkout girl who can sing like Britney Spears then they're going to go for it, right?" he said.

He added: "You're going in at the top, with a Number One that sells 750,000 or whatever and you've got someone like Dannii Minogue telling you you're really talented – and if there's one person in the room who wouldn't know talent if it kicked them in the arse it's Dannii Minogue."

T.I. speaks about ‘Live Your Life’ Video; remains sexy while doing so

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
T.I. spoke exclusively with Rap-Up.com about the video for his second single “Live Your Life” featuring Rihanna. The clip was shot earlier this month in Los Angeles with director Anthony Mandler (”Disturbia”).

“The concept is kind of complicated because it’s so metaphorical. It goes back to the whole T.I. vs. T.I.P. thing. You know how sometimes people think that a record deal will just change their life and be the answer to all of their prayers?” asked the rapper with the No. 1 album and single in the country. “Well, you have Tip in that position representing all the kids in the ‘hood who feel that the answer to get out the ‘hood is a record deal. Or it could be a football or basketball contract or whatever that ticket is for them.”

The story line features another character who’s achieved his professional goals and been more successful in life, but still doesn’t have peace of mind. “That’s the T.I. character—he’s gotten himself into something that he doesn’t want to be in no more and now he’s trying to buy his way back out. The person who he’s trying to buy his way back out from, coincidentally, is the person who the Tip character is coming to see about the record deal.”

T.I. compares the plot to an Academy Award-winning film. “It’s like Pulp Fiction how all the stories cross. It’s being told from the last scene to the first scene and both of the stories kind of intertwine along with Rihanna’s.”

The video for “Live Your Life” will premiere later this month.

Rachel Zoe talks Jen, Anne, Cameron, Oh Yeah and the Finale of Her Bravo Show




 

 

source: http://www.celebuzz.com/rachel-zoe-celebuzz-interview-s54971/

 


 

Chat with the celeb-fave style guru and star of The Rachel Zoe Project.

Rachel Zoe caught up with Celebuzz just in time for the finale of her Bravo show and talks Jen Garner, Anne Hathaway and more…"

Wow, do I sound like that every day?" Rachel Zoe asks, discussing the experience of watching herself on television. "Do those words really come flying out of my mouth?"

Yes, the infectious Zoeisms that are so brief but contain volumes of subtext, such as "I Die" or "Shut It Down."

Whatever shortcuts Zoe can take, the better. The tiny blond is responsible for dressing an army of red-carpet beauties,  starring in her own reality show, moonlighting as an author and expanding her empire with original designs.

"Busy? I really don't know how to be any other way," she admits, sitting down with Celebuzz on the eve of The Rachel Zoe Project's season finale.

"I need to work. I need to be moving. I need my brain to be stimulated," Zoe said.

There's certainly enough grist for her well-heeled mill. Zoe's main gig as celebrity stylist finds her shrouding some of the most-talked-about actresses, like Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson.

"I think the women that I work with every day, [they make me] want to get up in the morning. Everything I look at I think, Oh my God, I can't wait to put that on Cameron! Kate Hudson needs to wear this!" Zoe said.

Then there are those clients that, due to bad boys or high profile families, have fixed sets of eyes on them, practically demanding a hand like Zoe's.

Take Anne Hathaway, who has been showing decidedly sophisticated looks since her recent bout of man trouble.

"You grow up, and you grow up in this business," Zoe noted of Hathaway. "I think that's the place she is at now in her career, it's that time for her to really shine as a movie star.... She has such innate beauty, it's like, why not wear these beautiful dresses?"

Then there are the Jennifer Garner types—those that are paid attention because of former boyfriends, and their husband's ex-girlfriends, and their child's every playground visit.

"Jen is so grounded," Zoe says, "such an amazing woman. She's like super-mom. That's her priority."

And when it comes back to the red carpet, Zoe tells us that Garner is someone "we do things very outside of the box for," and is "always the best version of herself."

Garner's best self is pregnant once again, and taking a little "breather," putting fashion to the back burner and family up front.

When push comes to shove, Zoe says that for the odd appearance she and Jen have decided on "yummy sweaters she can wear in her everyday life."

Speaking of, Zoe has found that after the Bravo cameras left her home and studio, life went right back in order.

She and husband Rodger Berman "really are such normal people. Now the show is airing and we just exist...my work is my priority, he's busy at his job, we have our lives, and it's business as usual."

All that work looks more like pleasure. And will Zoe please viewers with a second round of her Project?

"If they ask me, I'm in, "she said.

In regards to renewal, Bravo had no official comment at this time.

Jennifer Ellison Announces Wedding Plans





Jennifer Ellison has announced that she will be getting hitched next year.

The actress, 25, told Closer magazine that she planned to wed new boyfriend Robbie Tickle, 29, in a small, low-key ceremony.

She said of her boyfriend of seven months: “Me and Rob haven't been together long, but when you fall madly in love with someone, you don't need to wait five years to take it to the next level."

"We'll get married next year – but it won't be a big celeb wedding, I only want an intimate affair with family and friends.”

The Brookside star is also keen on starting a family with Robbie, a semi-pro boxer.

“I'd love children. I want three, but I'm busy with work so it's on hold.”

Holly and Kendra speak more about split with Hef

Image-568x440-JPG-294.jpg

Holly Madison isn't jealous that Hugh Hefner has already moved on with 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

In fact, she tells Usmagazine.com, she introduced the three after she directed their Playmate pictorial this summer.

"They're a lot of fun," she told Us Monday at the 2008 "Bowling for Boobies" bash in Hollywood. "I would never try to personally pick Hef's new girlfriend. I would like him to take his time and actually get to know somebody -- which he never does! But as long as he's having fun, I'm happy for him!

"He's having lots of fun with them -- and a lot of other people!" she added.

Despite the girls' criminal backgrounds (they pleaded no contest in August to felony battery and were ordered to pay restitution), Madison, 28, told Us, "I think that they're in a good place right now and hopefully will stay out of trouble.

"They are a little young and definitely like to have a good time," she went on. "I just hope that they can take this new fame with a level head."

(Madison, for the record, said she is still single but is "having lots of fun going out with my girlfriends!" Asked if she's still living at the mansion, she told Us, "I haven't really changed anything. Like, as far as the whole transition thing, I just leave that up to Hef to talk about and make decisions on. Everything's good.")

Kendra Wilkinson told Us over the weekend she wasn't surprised Hef, 82, moved on so fast.

"I mean, Hef will always be Hef," she said at the Most Interesting Show in the World event in Hollywood on Saturday."You can never change him. Hef will keep going on. He'll keep loving women, keep loving the big boobs and blondes.

"But it's very rare to get a good batch like Holly, Bridget and I. I don't think they'll be any better than us."


She added, "I'll always be there for him. We're all still friends. Nothing is going to change that."

Jim Jones clarifies his TI comment, also speaks on Jay Z and Nas.


Jim Jones Speaks on Superior Swag, Disses Nas, and Accuses Camel of Ganking His Style

img232/2365/jimjonesww7.jpg

Jim Jones recently followed up on his comments about TI and Kanye’s swag during a Rhapsody interview about TI and Kanye’s swag:

A lot of people were surprised with your comments to Complex regarding T.I.

People took it the wrong way. I wasn’t really deliberately doing nothing to knock T.I. I was just saying what I felt regarding swagger and who sets the precedent for it. I know for sure that people have said, “Yo, you looking like Jim Jones. I’m trying to get that ‘Jim Jones’ look.” But I haven’t heard people saying you’re looking like T.I. or whoever. Where I’m from, n*gg*s don’t run to go look like no Kanye. I don’t hear n*gg*s in the ‘hood like I need to get that jacket Jay had on.

Well, Jay did get everyone to start rocking button-ups.

Yeah, he caught that. But that was in his moment when he was hot. He was able to dictate sh*t. But that was because Dame was around him and gave him a little bit of “cool” factor. Sh*t, what can he dictate now? He’s dressing like me. I seen him with some skull scarves and some Louis Vuitton scarves and all types of sh*t. That ain’t Rocawear. If that’s what you own, you should be vested in what you own. You should be wearing that sh*t all day because it should be some fly sh*t that you wanna have on. It should be like Ralph Lauren where you know I got some fly sh*t. But no n*gg*, you see him dressing like me and turn Rocawear into skulls and shit. [Laughs.]

Who do you feel like right now is holding it down for New York?

All these n*gg*s have been around and they still not doing nothing. They trying to catch up to me right now, literally. I’m the point of interest right now. Who’s been more relevant than me the past three years as far as New York is concerned? As far as style, fashion, speakin’ my mind, political awareness and stuntin’ on n*gg*s. Ladies love me. Police know my name on a first and last basis. They respect me for a [being a] G. They ain’t trying to lock me up for weed, so I’m having a ball. I probably smoke like a half an ounce a day. N*gg*s know how instrumental I am to New York. There’s no one gonna be able to do what I’ve done as far as the work I’ve put in, the things I’ve accomplished, and the things I’ve escaped unscathed for another 20 years. I don’t have to have nothing out and I still shut sh*t down. Me and Juelz go on any stage in the world and shut the whole thing down.
 

Now that you and Cam aren’t really on good terms, is there regret on your part that you went to bat for Cam and got into a beef with Nas?

Nah. F*ck Nas. I don’t give a f*ck about Nas. He’s a rapper that just lost his pizazz. When I was in high school, he was the sh*t. He was the n*gg* that got us hyped. “New York State of Mind,” Illmatic and all of that.

Is there any possibility of a reconciliation?
What kind of reconciliation? I was never cool with him. I seen Nas a few months ago in L.A. with Dame. We was staying in this hotel right above the Ferrari dealership. Dame seen him and was talking to him. I was laying back on a couch laughing. He didn’t know what to do. I was looking dead at him. [Laughs.] And then Dame was like, “You know Jim?” He started [stammering], “Ah? Ah?” Dame is just burnt out. He not thinking about none of that frivolous [beef] sh*t. Me neither, for the most part. Nas was never on my level ever. Ever.

Eva Mendes graces the cover of the Aussie Harper's Bazaar for November 08 ... and looks stunning.


In the interview, Eva talks about her heritage, her style, dieting and her famous curves. But more recently Eva Mendes admitted that she hates to be compared to fellow Latina Jennifer Lopez, insisting her career is “more serious.” Here are a few glimpse from Harpers Bazaar November 2008, Australia:

On her curves: “I have to work out four to six times a week. It’s because I enjoy pasta and having a biscuit with my coffee. I didn’t work out today, but tomorrow I’ll run Bondi to Bronte. My Cuban heritage means if the zipper doesn’t zip up the whole way, we just say screw it! No big deal.”

(here's her actually running from bondi to bronte)
Photobucket

On her exotic look: “I definitely feel my ethnicity or exoticness has got me to where I am, yet at the same time it can also hold me back because studio heads or directors are reluctant to cast me as an all-American girl. Those parts go to Drew Barrymore, who is actually a good friend of mine.”

On her upbringing: “When I was little I wanted to earn lots of money. I grew up in Silver Lake, LA, and we were very working class. I used to say to my mum: I’m going to buy you a big house, pay your bills and you’ll never have to work again. Then I discovered nuns don’t get paid, so I thought: How am I going to buy these houses?”

On her style: “I try not to stand out. My style can be a little kooky, but I don’t want to be known for how I dress. I’ve made a conscious decision to stay away from dresses that make me stand out in a ‘fashiony’ way. I certainly love fashion, but I want to be known for my work. Not for being controversial on the red carpet.”

Trista Rehn and Ryan Stutter expecting their second child.


img394/3834/tristapregnantby5.jpg

Reality royal couple Trista and Ryan Sutter have just announced that they are expecting another baby!!!!

The Bachelorette babe says she was "in total shock" it happened so quickly. She is now three months along.

Trista tells Life & Style magazine: "I was only on birth control for a couple of months. We thought that if it took us as long as it did with Max - two years - why try to prevent it? So we started trying in January."

And while she's barely into her first trimester, Trista is already thinking about her third child. After suffering from gestational diabetes with Max (who tuned 1 in July), she says she's open to adoption should there be any difficulties next time around.

"If we don't have a girl, I've thought about the possibility of adopting. It came up in conversation because I'm leaning toward having my tubes tied! I think I'll be happy with two kids. But then again, I was perfectly happy with just having Max. If we hadn't been able to get pregnant again, I was 100 percent happy with my life. This new baby will just add a little bit more life and spirit and happiness and fun!"

Let the Right One In HD Movie Trailer

Paris Hilton/Zac Efron/Lame Goss

Orange Paris lights up London



Paris Hilton's reality show My New BFF has hit the UK - and Paris is making sure she stands out among the Brit's pasty complexions during her stay.

Paris looked radioactive radiant in head-to-toe fake tan, her impressive glow lighting up the chilly city, with TV cameras following her every move as she made appearances at three different nightclubs in one night this week.

Calling it a night at 3am, Paris' nightclub tour was out of character for the newly-loved up socialite, who says she prefers to spend nights in with Good Charlotte boyfriend Benji Madden rather than paint the town red.

"We watch movies and I cook really big dinners for him," she says. "I'm an amazing cook. Just my whole lifestyle is different."

"We don't really go out as much any more unless it's for work. I just feel like an adult.

"When you're single it's different because you want to go out with your girlfriends and have fun.

"But when you're in a relationship and you're in love, there is no point going out because you just want to be together and do normal things.

"I think for the first time I'm in a really great relationship with a guy I really trust and treats me really well and who would never hurt me."

Um. Ninemsn Celebrity site is hilarious. Look at their story about Zac Efron's head...
Take that,Troy: Australians rip Zac Efron's head off


An alarming crime wave has descended upon High School Musical 3 marketing materials across the country - with images of Zac Efron beheaded, defaced and just plain stolen from Australian cinemas! But are these heinous crimes against cardboard acts of love or hatred?

Zac's superstardom has definitely spread Down Under after the High School Musical singey-dancey stuff was massive in the US, with any tween girl with a pulse plastering his bronzer-laden face on their bedroom walls. So why the vandalism?

The shot at left (above) was taken of the HSM 3 display at Reading Cinemas in Perth, with Zac's head cruelly torn from his cardboard body.

The shot below is of another display at a Hoyts cinema in Sydney, with the Zac head ripped off in exactly the same fashion. Is this some kinda wacky tween crime cult we're unaware of? We can just see a bunch of 10-year-old Disney Girl readers giggling over their dad's laptop conspiring over IM.

The death toll so far for Zac displays stands at three, with a Hoyts rep saying a further HSM display has been removed completely after being "destroyed".

OK, destroyed? This makes the matter a little more sinister than a bunch of girls wanting a cardboard Zac head to smuggle home. Who could ever want to harm such a cheery, fresh-faced, wholesome group of teen entertainers?

“We knew there were huge numbers of fanatical High School Musical fans out there but who’d have thought they would go to this extreme?" said Disney publicist Sam Jones. "Zac Efron is currently one of the hottest properties in Hollywood so there is no surprise people here are trying to get a piece of him."

More details as they come...


Beheaded! The HSM crew, minus Zac Efron's head, at a Hoyts Cinema in Sydney - and inset: te original display

Britney Spears will begin a tour next spring, produced by AEG Live, Billboard can exclusively reveal. Sources say the trek will likely hit arenas and be international in scope, as were recent AEG Live-produced outings by Bon Jovi and Justin Timberlake.

Spears last toured in 2004, grossing more than $34 million, according to Billboard Boxscore.

The artist will be out in support of her new album, "Circus," due Dec. 2 via Jive. First single "Womanizer" is expected to leap into the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 this week after first-week download sales are factored into the chart.

Tim McGraw apologizes to fans, gets mad at record label



Tim McGraw apologized to fans Tuesday for his latest greatest hits album, saying his label should have instead released a record with new music.

"I am saddened and disappointed that my label chose to put out another hits album instead of new music," says the country singer. "I've only had one studio album since my last hits package. It has to be just as confusing to the fans as it is to me."

McGraw, 41, said he has been working on a new studio album for more than a year and has debuted three new songs on his tour. But he said his label, Curb Records, decided to release a greatest hits album instead, to extend his contract term.

"I had no involvement in the creation or presentation of this record," he says. "Sure, I love the songs and I don't want to take anything away from all the creative people who were a part of making those records. But the whole concept is an embarrassment to me as an artist. In the spirit of an election year, I would simply say to my fans 'I'm Tim McGraw, and I don't approve their message.' "

A rep for Curb Records was not immediately available for comment.

Fox News Calls Beyonce a Thief


Her only crime is stealing a terrible song, at least steal something that sounds good!



Beyonce's 'Stolen' New Hit Record

Last week, I raved and raved about Beyonce’s new single, "If I Were a Boy." Remember? I thought it was the best thing she’d ever done, and was amazed that she’d even found the material.

Well, guess what? The story behind "If I Were a Boy" is absolutely scandalous. It also explains my question of why this single missed the Grammy deadline of Sept. 30, since it was ready to go at least three weeks ago. The answer: it was held up by endless legal wrangling since, in the long hallowed tradition of the music business, the young woman who wrote the melody and lyrics for "If I Were a Boy" had no idea Beyonce had even recorded her song until a stranger called with the news. By then, it was too late.

Yale scoffs at latest "Gossip Girl" ep

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Yale students, admissions dean disappointed in "Gossip Girl"

Last night's episode of "Gossip Girl", set at Yale but filmed at Columbia University, was chock full of myths and errors about the Ivy League school, especially with regards to the admissions process, according to the Yale Daily News. For instance, Yale's real dean of admissions doesn't personally interview students and, he says, "I certainly do not hold or attend private dinners for candidates." "It didn’t bring out the Yale that we all know and love, but instead just used stereotypes about Yale," said another student. "And all the characters were just focusing on getting in (to Yale) ... It was kind of a failure."

That's kinda of harsh. Yale could have just said "I really hate that stupid headband!" and left it at that.

Lauren Conrad's 15 Second Appearance On Priviledged Helps Boots Ratings

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic


"Privileged" (2.3 million, 1.1/3) gained 22% from last week despite the weaker lead-in.

Three possible reasons for this: Either "Privileged" is gaining some traction, as some have predicted might happen. Or the CW merely benefited from being the only broadcast entertainment programming at 9 p.m. Or "The Hills" star Lauren Conrad appearing on the show last night drew some new viewers. Most likely, it's the latter two, but we'll check back next week to see if CW's fall underdog series sustains its number. (Hullo, a reader just pointed out a fourth possible reason -- CW aired a "Privileged" repeat on Monday to gain some additional exposure for the show).




http://www.thrfeed.com/2008/10/tuesday-ratings.html

**************************************************
Aww, her bottom feeders are not going to like this. No Wonder she is leaving The Hills, she is probably talking to other networks about producing her own scripted show.

Rose McGowan Post!


US actress Rose McGowan is set to play adult movie legend Linda Lovelace in a new film.

 

Rose, 35, has signed up to portray Linda - who shot to fame in 1971 as the star of famous porn film Deep Throat - in new biopic of her life, Inferno.

A source said: "It’s a very gritty role - Linda’s life was far from happy."

Rose, who has previously portrayed a stripper in horror film Planet Terror, is said to be fascinated by Linda’s tragic life.

Inferno will tell how the porn queen, who's real name was Linda Boreman, was forced into the sex industry by her abusive husband Chuck Traynor.

Her breakthrough film Deep Throat caused a sensation upon release, and was one of the only pornographic movies ever to be shown in mainstream cinemas.

Linda eventually died penniless aged 53 in 2002 after losing control of her car and crashing.

Before her death she had been involved in drug use but had turned her life around and become an ardent feminist and anti-porn campaigner.

The role of Linda is a career coup for Rose, with both Angelina Jolie and Meg Ryan previously linked to the movie.

Jimmy Marsden Q&A


Moviefone 15 Questions With: James Marsden

James Marsden is one of Hollywood's unsung players -- a versatile character actor trapped in a leading man's body. He's been a superhero ('X-Men'), a prince ('Enchanted'), a singing-and-dancing TV host ('Hairspray') ... and now, in the upcoming raunchy teen road-trip comedy 'Sex Drive,' he's Rex, the thirtysomething big brother from hell, with blond highlights and one helluva sweet, sweet ride.

When Moviefone chatted with the refreshingly down-to-earth married father of two (he and actress wife Lisa Linde have Jack, 7 and Mary, 3), he revealed what drew him to playing a loser jerk, what perfume commercial he sang for -- and what '80s teen idol inspired him to pick up and move to L.A. -- By Angie Argabrite

SAM PROPOSED!



Samantha Ronson proposed to Lindsay Lohan on holiday with a £50,000 ring.

The 'Mean Girls' actress was thrilled when DJ Samantha suggested a civil partnership and presented her with the Cartier diamond band during their break in Mexico. The lovers were having dinner by the beach in Cabo San Lucas when a waiter came over with the ring which was hidden inside a covered silver tray.

Ville Valo /HIM album blah wait.what and Fiona Apple?!?



Ville Valo uutta rakkautta? Ville saattaisi olla tulossa todetaan muista syistä sitten musiikkia.  Mutta hän todella onnellinen nyt. Amerikkalainen laulaja Fiona Apple saattaa olla syytä onneen
Ville on aina ajattelua ja kirjallisesti HIM: n uusi albumi. Pohjimmiltaan Ne lähettää toisemme 
kappaleet ja sanoitukset

Some of the Translated Article

 

Ville Valo is like the last man standing in his band HIM, but the finnish native might not be for long.  According to friend of Ville's he has been in constant contact with an American singer by the name of Fiona Apple.

"He heard her version of 'Sally's song' which is a song from the movie "A Nightmare before Christmas" He was completely intriged which is funny because I was actually looking for the Amy lee's version of the song, he said to me how can something so dark,deep and moody come from such a tiny,beautiful lady"

Fiona Apple is an American Jazz,folk,rock singer, she has been performing just as long as HIM actually, she's a Grammy,MTV winner. "She and Ville has been talking on ICHAT a lot and he told me that they have tons in common to the point of it being odd, and he hopes to hang out with her when he gets to the states, which might be sooner then later. I've never seen him this happy before.

So here's to hoping for a great new HIM album since Ville seems to have found his muse.

Demi and Rumer are making a movie


Demi Moore is to make her directorial debut, with a movie starring her daughter.

The actor will go behind the camera for Streak, a short film featuring 20-year-old Rumer Willis – Demi’s eldest child with ex-husband Bruce Willis – and the 45-year-old star thinks the experience will bring them closer.

“The great thing is I'm seeing her mature and operate as a complete professional," he said. "And it's giving us, I think, another opportunity to connect in a totally different way."

The House Bunny star agreed with her mother, adding: "I think other times when your mom's telling you what to do, you're like, 'God Mom, come on!' But when the creative side kind of comes with it, I've been really impressed and it's a really interesting thing to see."

Streak is part of Glamour magazine’s Reel Moments venture, with the films written by, and based on the lives of, readers of the publication.

Three short films are being made, with Demi joined in the director’s chair by actress Courteney Cox and screenwriter Kiwi Smith, who are also undertaking the role for the first time.

Streak – which will also star Brittany Snow, Madeline Zima and Sarah Wright – follows a college senior whose brave act leads to her finally accepting herself.

The Simmons Sisters Reveal 'Run's House' Spin-off

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
They may have moved out of their father's house, but 'Run's House' fans can expect to see more of the lovely older daughters of Run-DMC rapper Reverend Run when their own reality series gets underway.

Angela and Vanessa Simmons revealed to Blackvoices.com that the new MTV spin-off, will be called 'Daddy's Girls,' and will follow their "lives in L.A. and what's going on with us," since making the bi-coastal move from The Big Apple.

Expect the new series to showcase the sisters as they evolve their popular 'Pastry' shoe and clothing line into another more grown-up brand, in addition to embarking upon other exciting ventures.

Over the past few years, MTV viewers have watched Vanessa go from 'Ford' model to 'The Guiding Light' soap star. She tells us, "[I'm] still doing acting and I'm moving along...I appreciate my process because that's going to make me stronger in the end and the best talent that I can possibly give the world."

She just began filming a new movie opposite Marques Houston last week.

And, while Vanessa locks down the acting roles between the duo, Angela, who serves as executive editor of her own magazine, 'Angela's Rundown,' has her eye on music. She recently dropped a Gwen Stefani-esque song called 'Center of Attention' and premiered the video on the official Pastry website.

Coincidentally, Angela's love life has been the center of a lot of her fans attention. People buzzed that she was seeing rapper Bow Wow after appearing in his video for 'Shortie Like Mine,' but Angela put all those rumors to rest when she began publicly dating pro skateboarder Terry Kennedy.

There's sure to be a promising future for the Simmons sisters.

To be able to pull off a successful shoe collection, which launched just under two years ago, these girls prove to have the wherewithal to last longer than most reality television stars.

No doubt about it, that's a testament to great parenting.

Vanessa wants people to keep an eye out for their upcoming clothing line for the "more demure and sophisticated older girl who may not have realized she's a 'Pastry' girl yet." She said it will launch around Fall 2009 – just in time for back to school.

[Rik Makarem]

Four new cast members have been revealed for Torchwood: Children of Earth, the shortened third season of the cult show.

Producer Peter Bennett told Torchwood Magazine about the additions, a mixture of established and upcoming talent.

Former Cape Wrath star Lucy Cohu will play Alice, described by Bennett as "a woman keeping many secrets from the past".

Susan Brown, best known for her turn in The Riff Raff Element, plays Bridget Spears - "a character vitally connected to the government, which plays an important part in this story", according to Bennett.

The quartet is completed by newcomers Cush Jumbo and Rik Makarem, with the former playing Lois Habiba, "a secretary who hacks into some vital information", and Makarem portraying Doctor Rupesh Patanjali, a "junior doctor at St Helen's hospital who gets drawn into Torchwood's investigations".

They join a trio of previously announced guest stars - including Peter Capaldi - in the third season, which is currently filming for transmission on BBC One in early 2009.

BRITNEY: THE MOVIE? OFF ITUNES? ON ITUNES?

BRITNEY: THE MOVIE?

BRITNEY Spears’ mum is set to turn her controversial book about the singer’s tormented life into a movie.

Lynne is already in talks with top Hollywood studios.

Her book, Through The Storm, charts her daughter’s drink, drugs and teen-sex troubles. And Lynne, 53, reckons a movie version would be a worldwide sensation.

Sources say Scary Movie and House Bunny babe Anna Faris, 31, is tipped to star as Britney.

Collapse )Ironically, she played an oddball pop star in the comedy Just Friends.

Lynne has told film chiefs she wants her own role to be played by superstar Julia Roberts, 40. But the movie idea is said to be pushing her already strained relationship with her daughter to breaking point.

Britney, 26, fears a film about the more sordid incidents in her life could scupper her big comeback as she prepares for a world tour to promote new album Circus and single Womanizer.

She has also accused her mum of cashing in on her revived career, telling a pal: “She will do anything to get herself more famous and make money off my name. It’s just unreal. If I could cut her out of my life completely, I would.”

In the book, Lynne claims her girl began boozing at the age of 13, lost her virginity at 14 and started taking drugs at 15.

The film would also chart Brit’s marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, 30, dad of sons Jayden James, two, and Sean Preston, three.

And it would show the mental meltdown which saw her sectioned for her own safety earlier this year.

The pal added of Lynne: “She’s pitching the book around to studios. She even says she wants Julia Roberts to play her. It’s insane!

“She and Britney have been estranged since 2006, when Brit split from Federline and thought Lynne took his side.

“Now Britney is telling friends: ‘That woman doesn’t even seem like my mother any more.’”

A US spokesman for Britney said last night said he was unaware of Lynne’s movie plans. </div></div>

BRITNEY: ON ITUNES?

Speaking of iTunes, thanks to those of you who alerted me to the fact that "Womanizer" was no longer available for purchase. You're my eyes and ears, what on earth would I do without you? Anyway, Jive is looking into this problem as we speak, and they're working to get it resolved ASAP. There seems to be a glitch with iTunes, as Jive did not ask that the single be removed. So for now, relish in the Britney excitement.

All of Ms. Peter's royalties will be donated for the care of shelter animals. FAO Schwarz is located at 767 5th Avenue at 58th Street.

A long time advocate for pet adoption, Peters and fellow actress Mary Tyler Moore started the organization Broadway Barks! Each year they hold a star-studded dog and cat adopt-a-thon, benefiting New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies. The event is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and sponsored by the ASPCA. The book, authored by Peters, with illustrations by Liz Murphy, is published by Blue Apple Books and is the star's first foray into the publishing world. She did it at the prompting of friends and agreed to not only write the book, loosely based on how she adopted her dog Kramer, but also penned an original song, again at the prompting of both friends and her publisher, which comes on a CD inside the book along with her charming reading of the story...sound effects and all!

The publisher's notes for "Broadway Barks" read, "In a park in New York City lives a lonely little dog. He remembers when he used to get taken for walks, fed dinner every night, and told he was a good dog. Now, he's all alone and must fend for himself. But everything changes one day when he sees a lady reading in the park and decides to follow her—all the way to a place where he might become a star!"

It’s funny, just yesterday we were talking about how elusive Leonardo DiCaprio is - the man seems to take great joy in eluding prying camera eyes. But our photog was not to be fooled this afternoon when he spotted Leo and his GF Bar Rafaeli zipping around Beverly Hills on his scooter. Woah, Leo sans helmet? What would the po-po say? That’s a violation of Cali law, brotha! Leo pictures in and of themselves are rare enough, but pics of Leo breakin’ the law are all that plus a fun tidbit to talk about. Editors are going to be all over this shot.

Jay-Z Puts DJ AM Back Behind The Decks




Less than one month after surviving a deadly plane crash, DJ AM will return to the turntables on Wednesday, October 15, to help Jay-Z celebrate the rebirth of the Hollywood Palladium.

On September 19th DJ AM and ex-Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker survived a fiery Learjet crash that claimed four lives.  AM, who escaped with second and third degree burns on his left arm and face is excited to be making his first public appearance with the Brooklyn powerhouse.

"He's the greatest rapper in the world," the DJ told People magazine. "This is the biggest thing that's happened in my career."

Tomorrow night's show is a celebration of the rebirth of LA's legendary music venue, The Palladium, which opened 68 years ago with a performance by Frank Sinatra.

Last year, Live Nation the concert promotion company with whom Jay inked a reported $150 million deal, stepped in and signed a long-term lease to operate, manage and book the venue.

After about $20 million in renovations Live Nation is now ready to relaunch the performance space with a sold out show, which will feature Jay-Z, a 12-piece band and the recovered DJ AM.

This show will kick off a series of Jay-Z performances across the United States.  Over the next two weeks Jay will perform in Houston, Philadelphia, Charlottesville, VA and East Rutherford, NJ.

Detroit Red Wings honored at the White House.

Video of the speech (cute video)

The transcript



WASHINGTON -- President Bush honored the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday at the White House, telling the 2008 Stanley Cup champions "you were determined -- and you won."

The silver Stanley Cup glittered under the huge chandelier in the ornate East Room as the Red Wings were given a standing ovation by guests, including U.S. Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, several Marines, dozens of boy hockey players dressed in jerseys and sneakers, and two Bush friends who carried autographed blades.

"The Stanley Cup is the oldest trophy in professional sports," the president said. "It's also very difficult to win....The players here met the grueling test, and they set some impressive records along the way."

Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom gave the president two red and white jerseys emblazoned "Bush 41" and "Bush 43," signifying Bush and his father's presidential order.

"We'd love to come back again," said Lidstrom, who stood with his teammates behind the president.

Before and after the ceremony, the president's personal Marine band played Motown songs.

Coach Mike Babcock and owners Mike and Marian Ilitch also attended. Babcock later described being honored by the president as "absolutely fantastic."

Christina Aguilera: 'We'll Definitely Have More Kids'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Her first child, son Max, is just 9 months old, but Christina Aguilera is already thinking about baby No. 2.

"Absolutely, we'll definitely have more kids," she told PEOPLE at the Africa Rising concert in London Tuesday. How many? "I don't know. We'll play it by ear."

For now, the singer, 27, is enjoying her time with Max.

"I'm in love with my life," she says, although parting with her son to perform can be a drag. "But Mama has to work, Mama has to do a job."

She adds, "I think it's important to share what I love – what makes me me – with my son. So. I change diapers and I breastfeed him and I play with him and then I work. I want to show Max everything about me."

Aguilera, who married music exec Jordan Bratman in 2005, says Max inspired her upcoming album. "It's all about color and life. Everything's a playground for him. Everything is color and fun."

How did Aguilera regain her body after baby? "You try," she says. "Working out. Trying to eat as healthy as possible. I'm a junk food queen."

T.I. CONTINUES ON #1 TRAIL Rise Against Debuts at #2, Oasis Top 5, Dylan, McGraw, McLachlan Also Bow




Rise Against Debuts at #2, Oasis Top 5, Dylan, McGraw, McLachlan Also Bow

October 14, 2008

For T.I., the Grand Hustle continues.

The Atlanta rapper’s Paper Trail album on Atlantic spends another week at the top spot on the HITS Album chart, logging in another 170k in sales.

That is more than double the next highest album, DGC/Interscope Windy City rabble-rousing rockers Rise Against, whose Appeal to Reason debuts at #2 with 68k.

Veteran U.K. rockers Oasis are the Top 5’s other chart newcomers, as their Reprise bow, Dig Out Your Soul, debuts behind WB holdovers Metallica (#3) and Arista/RMG Dreamgirls diva Jennifer Hudson’s self-titled first album  (#4).

Columbia Rock god Bob Dylan’s Tell Tale Signs, Vol. 8 of his Bootleg Series, enters at #6, while Curb’s Tim McGraw lands at #9 with his Greatest Hits, Vol. 3, put out without his authorization and now the subject of the country superstar’s complaints against the label.

Atlantic’s Kid Rock continues strong at #7, with Def Jam/IDJMG’s Ne-Yo (#8) and Hear Music/Concord’s James Taylor (#10) rounding out the Top 10.

Other chart newcomers include Arista/RMG’s Sarah McLachlan (#11), Vagrant’s Senses Fail (#18), Disney’s Nightmare Revisited soundtrack (#33), Columbia’s Michelle Williams (#37), Artist First/Shangri-La Music’s Pretenders (#38), Atlantic’s Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist soundtrack (#39) Tesla Electric’s Tesla (#41), Razor & Tie’s Devin the Dude (#47) and Island/IDJMG’s Jon McLaughlin (#50).

Capitol’s Kate Perry is the week’s biggest gainer, moving #31-21, +10%, on the strength of the second hit single, “Hot N’ Cold," from her album, One of the Boys.

This week, the deluxe edition of Kenny Chesney’s new BNA album, Lucky Old Sun, hits retail, with a probable chart-topping debut next Tuesday. Also on tap are new albums from Mercury Nashville’s Billy Currington, Interscope’s Keane, Lost Highway’s Lucinda Williams and Syco/SMEI U.K. opera crooner Paul Potts’ reissued Christmas collection, with Columbia’s AC/DC hitting Wal-Marts next Monday (10/20).

Taylor Swift Ready to Vote for the Very First Time

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
As the presidential election approaches Taylor Swift has politics on her mind.

"The first thing I did this year on my 18th birthday was register to vote," Swift tells Redbook magazine. "I was still in my pajamas and I got on my computer and registered."

"It was so cool and empowering. I felt this responsibility that I've never felt before – I actually had a say in the political discussions of my country," she says.

The singer, who turned 18 last December, appears on the cover of magazine's November issue with country stars Reba McEntire and Martina McBride.

As a songwriter, she says, "I just want to be honest and tell my stories. So I write about the kind of stuff young women experience."

"And, yes, a lot of that has to do with boys," Swift admits. Swift has been linked with teen star Joe Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers.

EXCLUSIVE: See Danity Kane's Sexy New PETA Ad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Danity Kane would rather go naked then wear fur!

Aubrey O' Day, Shannon Bex, D. Woods, and Aundrea Fimbres all appear naked - and smiling - in an anti-fur ad for PETA.

"We want to remind consumers that no matter how much the desperate fur industry tries to pull the wool over their eyes, electrocuting, drowning, strangling, and stomping animals to death will never be in style," PETA Director of Media Relations Michael McGraw tells Usmagazine.com.

Formed on MTV's Making the Band , Danity Kane released its second album Welcome to the Dollhouse, earlier this year. Their "Damaged" was nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards.

The Making The Band 4 season finale will air live at 9 p.m. on MTV.

Rumors have been swirling that executive producer Sean "Diddy" Combs will fire O' Day.

The special, hosted by MTV News correspondent Sway, will feature footage of Diddy confronting the band.

"In the live special viewers and fans will find out if there has really been a cut and if MTV’s favorite girl group stays in-tact," MTV said in a statement.

Edward Norton is a dick, some douche from a TV show is surprised

'Edward Norton, You Sure Were A Dick At Vons'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Two years ago, after Ed Norton was chivalrous to a New York waitress, we wondered if his career was on the ropes because "Quality celebrities would never be nice to you." Well, the film star must have let the financial success of the Incredible Hulk go to his head, because now he can't buy groceries without pissing off Hollywood insiders with his insolence. Witness the attached Missed Connections ad on Craigslist, already pulled, which firmly establishes that Norton does not take kindly to being complimented while buying frozen shrimp. (Frozen shrimp? Those are tricky waters for a self-professed environmentalist!) Consider yourself warned the next time you see Norton at the Spotted Pig or whatever!

Gossip Girl Stars in Pro-Obama Ad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Airing nationally on MTV, Comedy Central and during Gossip Girl, as well as on YouTube, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively star in a new pro-Barack Obama ad made by MoveOn.org. The spot parodies anti-drug PSAs, urging viewers to "talk to their parents" about voting for John McCain.

Directed by Bourne Identity's Doug Liman, the 30-second commercial features the Gossip Girl stars, as well as other young actors warning of the consequences of voting for the Republican presidential nominee.

"This will be the most important election of our lifetimes when you think about what is at stake. Young people get it, they are voting overwhelmingly for Barack Obama," says director Doug Liman. "Too many of their parents are still on the fence and I thought it was important to make this ad and let my generation and older generations know that the younger generation is clear: they want a future and a country led by Barack Obama."

"Mom? Dad? I found THIS in your room," says Penn in the spot as he holds up a "Drill Baby Drill!" hat.

"Just because other people your age are doing it, doesn't make it cool," says another actor of voting for McCain.

"And if you're ever out somewhere and you're considering voting McCain, just call me. I'll pick you up. No questions asked," Blake implores the camera.

Take That Join Britney Spears' Circus

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Take That and Britney Spears are butting heads over their album titles – The Circus and Circus respectively.

The boy band – whose record is released a day before Britney's – insist that they have every right to release their record under the same name as the pop princess' new effort.

Their manager says, "The boys have worked on this for months, like Britney, and we certainly won't be changing the title.

"When you work that far in advance, it's impossible to know what people will call albums. British pop duo Erasure had an album Circus. The name is not copyrighted.

"I doubt there will be confusion. Fans will either ask for the new record by Take That of Britney Spears."

Inspector Clouseau, Miranda Priestly, Jack Donaghy to make romantic comedy



Universal is setting
Steve Martin to join Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin in the untitled romantic comedy that Nancy Meyers wrote and will direct in February.

Meyers is producing with Scott Rudin.

Martin and Baldwin will play rivals for the affection of a woman (Streep). Meyers set up the project at U after making her two previous films at Columbia in "Something's Gotta Give" and "The Holiday." Universal acquired foreign on the latter, and the film performed more strongly overseas than it did domestically.

Martin next reprises his role as Inspector Clouseau in "Pink Panther 2," which Sony releases on Feb. 6.

He is reteaming with Meyers, who co-wrote and produced both of the "Father of the Bride" films in which Martin starred for Disney.

The future king of England, Scotland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, etc mare is above the law ?

The controversial picture: It might not be a criminal offense in the USA, but in the UK it is...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's hardly behaviour befitting of the girlfriend to the heir to the throne. But Kate Middleton has come under fire after being caught on camera using her mobile phone while driving.

The girlfriend of heir to the throne Prince William was seen behind the wheel of her Audi A3 hatchback with her phone clamped to her ear, along a country lane.
This kind of driving offence usually carries a fine of £60 and three penalty points. And if someone had been injured, the 26-year-old could even have faced a jail term.

A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, said: 'Using a mobile phone while driving is extremely dangerous and has cost numerous lives. 'Drivers are four times more likely to crash if they are on their mobiles.'
A bystander told the Sun that Kate, who has dated Prince William on and off since University, said she was 'going quite quickly. 'And you could clearly see she was on the phone.'

Last year it was made illegal to use a mobile without a hands-free kit while at the wheel of a car.

Johnny Depp Headed Back to the Poorhouse

In keeping with Hollywood's recent campaign to spoil all of our fun, Terry Rossio, who co-wrote the three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, says all those crazy rumors swirling around upcoming fourth film are false, "including the so-called record 50 million dollar payday for Depp." (Other debunked gossip includes Tim Burton signing on as director and Sacha Baron Cohen joining the cast.) According to Rossio, "studios are way too protective of their franchises for that sort of thing." Also, according to us, studios are way too lame for that sort of thing.

New Bill Raises Penalties on Downloaders, Creates Anti-Piracy Czar 

The RIAA is celebrating — for once! — after President Bush's signing of a controversial bill yesterday that will institute harsher monetary penalties for music downloaders and create a hilarious new, probably ineffectual federal-level position — an "intellectual-property czar," who will report directly to the president on matters related to copyright (the post will most likely not be filled before the end of the Bush administration).

An earlier, even sillier draft of the legislation had called for the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute civil cases against downloaders and then turn any recovered damages over to rights holders (thereby giving the RIAA free lawyers at taxpayers' expense), but that measure was stripped from the bill before passage. Now, the most controversial part calls for the forfeiture of any device used in piracy (meaning they can take your computer). Remember, though, they still have to catch you! And since the RIAA has brought lawsuits against only 25,000 of the hundreds of millions of file sharers since they started in 2003, your chances of being sued are still really, really bad. So, please, continue to enjoy our daily Right-Click post worry-free!

ETA:

On October 13, President Bush signed a highly controversial anti-piracy law. Thedictator President has put into effect a law that will appoint an intellectual property czar (yeah folks, you heard it right) that will report directly to the President (again, you heard that right) on how to keep hax0rz from illegally obtaining copyrighted materials. The targets are primarily music, movies, and TV, but you can bet this will be leaking over to other stuff with copyrights. The bill was, of course, backed by none other than the RIAA and MPAA (our favorite institutions!). Say good-bye to the phrase “DRM Free” everyone. Apparently, counterfeiting and piracy costs the U.S. $250 billion annually… that’s a lotta billions for free tunes and movies. Any devices used in piracy may have to be forfeited to Big Brother, lest “firemen” come into your house and burn down your gadgets Fahrenheit 450 style.

Sophie Monk says life is good again (and the sad part is, that's the name of the article)

monk Pictures, Images and Photos


Aussie starlet Sophie Monk says she's survived the tough times following her break-up from rocker fiance Benji Madden and is now loving her life in Hollywood.

The former Popstars babe, who jetted into Sydney on Monday morning, said she was excited to be back home, if only for one week.
"I haven't been back here since Christmas, since I broke up, and for me to see all my close friends, it's just a completely different place. I'm so happy," Monk told AAP.
Monk broke off her engagement with Good Charlotte guitarist Madden at the beginning of the year, and said her first few years living in Los Angeles have been very hard at times.
"I landed there on my own with nothing, knowing no-one - like starting from scratch," Monk said.
"I'm glad I stayed and went through the tough times and that kind of thing.
"I've made it look very easy but it's been a lot harder than that."
The 28-year-old actress and singer, who has starred in movies such as Date Movie and Click, said things were now looking up and she had been busy filming her reality TV show, which was tentatively titled Bigger Than Paris.
"Work is fantastic at the moment," she said.
"I've worked with the producers from Curb Your Enthusiasm and it's really just going to be me, fish out of water, and how I actually look glamorous and I'm in this glamorous world, but it's actually the total opposite.
"It's just showing how I'm very down to earth and it's all someone else trying to push me, pull me together and help me with my hair, and it's accidentally me stumbling my way through."

Monk is in Australia to launch a new range of shapewear undergarments called Hollywood Fashion Shapes, and strutted the red carpet in a figure-hugging dress at Sydney hot spot The Ivy.
Speaking to Australia's Next Top Model judge Jonathan Pease when she arrived, Monk proved she knows a lot about shapewear, but not so much about finance.
When asked whether she had been affected by the troubles with the economy, Monk responded: "The what? No, luckily in my industry it doesn't really affect it, which is lucky because I don't know much about the economy."

IMHP, she's a dumb broad. I'm Australian and I'm ashamed of her ...her biggest break in Hollywood was getting her hooks into Benhi Madden and milking off that. The hardest thing about her breaking in is showing her plastic face and jugs are standout from the others in L.A.

9 to 5 previews pushed back; will now begin april 7th

Preview and opening dates have been slightly altered for the eagerly awaited 9 to 5: The Musical, which boasts a score by the Grammy Award-winning star of the concert stage and screen, Dolly Parton.

Originally scheduled to begin previews at the Marquis Theatre March 24, 2009, with an official opening April 23, 2009, the new musical — which is currently playing an out-of-town tryout at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles through Oct. 19 — will now arrive at the Marquis April 7, 2009, and officially open April 30, 2009.

Tickets for the Broadway production will go on sale exclusively to American Express Gold Card members Oct. 29. The on-sale date for the general public will be Dec. 1. Tickets, priced $66.50-$126.50, will be available by calling (212) 307-4100 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com.

Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Wicked, Take Me Out, Assassins) directs the musical comedy about three women office workers in the 1980s who are "just a step on the boss man's ladder" (as the title opening song goes), so they seek revenge. Patricia Resnick, who created the story and screenplay for the hit Hollywood film on which the show is based, wrote the musical's libretto. Parton starred as Doralee in the film, and was Academy Award-nominated for the title song.

Multiple Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney stars as Violet Newstead, the super-efficient office manager who joins her co-workers — the frazzled divorcee Judy Bernly, played by Stephanie J. Block, and the sexy executive secretary Doralee Rhodes, played by Megan Hilty, to turn the tables on their boss, the "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot" Franklin Hart, Jr., played by two-time Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch.
