OMG. A-Rod is Postive!

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic


American baseball star Alex Rodriguez - also known as Madonna's sometimes beau - reportedly tested positive for two anabolic steroids earlier in his career, it has been revealed.

A-Rod, whose 10-year $275 million contract with the New York Yankees is the richest in baseball history, is thought to be on a list of 104 Major League players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

The 33-year-old is considered a sporting hero to many baseball fans in America, but is best known in the UK for his links to superstar Madonna.

A-Rod was drug tested in 2003 as part of a survey for the players' union, which was deciding whether mandatory random testing of Major League players was necessary.

The results were supposed to be anonymous, but Sports Illustrated magazine said it had confirmed the high profile player's inclusion on the list with four independent sources.

Prince Harry tells Paris Hilton: It's Off


Paris Hilton arrives at the InStyle and Warner Bros. Studios Golden Globe Prince Harry

Prince Harry might be back on the singles market but he seems to have forgotten how to play the dating game.
 

I’m told the Prince, who recently split from his girlfriend of five years, Chelsy Davy, had planned to meet American socialite Paris Hilton last week.

But he cancelled at the last minute, leaving the 27-year-old heiress without a date for the night.

Paris, who was in town promoting her new reality TV show, had told friends she planned to meet Harry on Friday at midnight.

But she received a call from his bodyguard hours before their rendezvous to say that the Prince was not coming to London.

‘Paris had spoken directly with Harry to arrange their meeting,’ says my source.
 

‘She was pretty annoyed that Harry blew her out but they may well meet on her next trip to London.

'She has been in touch with Harry since they met in London last year and has even had an invite back to Clarence House.’

JT talks to trees, murders employee

Worker killed on Timberlake's golf course



A construction worker has been killed on a golf course owned by pop star Justin Timberlake after a 100-foot tree fell on top of him.

Cruz Ayala Delgado died at the Big Creek Golf Club in Timberlake's hometown of Millington, Tennessee on Saturday, police have confirmed.

A spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred at approximately 8:30 a.m., when the man was trying to remove the tree from the course.

Local fire department officials reportedly took two hours to remove Delgado's body from the scene after Big Creek employees reportedly tried to lift the tree but were unsuccessful.

Shelby County Fire Dept. told WREG in Memphis: "We think at this point that the ground can be so unstable. It's very wet and very muddy that the bottom of the tree just gave way."

Timberlake and his parents purchased the course, where the singer learned to play the sport, in 2007 for £544,220 to save it from residential development and have reportedly spent £10.9 million on renovations

Lady GaGa makes 'bizarre' gig demands

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Lady GaGa made a number of strange demands to organisers of her latest UK gig, a report claims.

The American singer apparently requested a mix of snacks and health foods in her dressing room at Liverpool's Newz bar, where she performed on Friday night.

As well as asking for honey, a kettle and a range of teas, the star is also said to have demanded a gallon of low-fat milk, assorted fresh fruit, a whole roasted chicken and a loaf of wheat bread.

GaGa also reportedly included a large bag of tortilla chips, a plate of "non-smelly" cheese and a deli tray with assorted meats on her list of requirements.

An insider told The People: "Lady GaGa has some bizarre demands. She loves her junk food but it's the honey for her tea she is most particular about. It's her secret weapon to keep her voice in good shape."

The source added: "She knows what she likes and she gets what she wants. She is no Mariah Carey or J-Lo - but forget her favourite honey and things will be far from sweet for you."

Sarah Harding: Nicola Roberts wants my party animal crown



Sarah Harding
reckons Nicola Roberts has become the wildest member of Girls Aloud.

The singer, who’s dating DJ Tom Crane, loves going on a bender with the redhead, 23.

‘At the minute Nicola is trying to pinch my crown as the party animal,’ she jokes.

‘I have to say once that girl has a few drinks inside her, she’s totally mental.

'If I want a proper night out, Nicola is always my partner in crime. No one’s safe.’

But for now, Sarah, 27, is content working on her cottage renovation in Buckinghamshire with Tom.

‘I’m so happy,' she says. 'There’s one side of me that loves to party, then there’s this other side which craves peace and quiet and to be surrounded by nature.’

How awkward

Wearing quite the extravagant ensemble, Katy Perry took the stage at the 2009 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 8).

Not one to let the audience down, the 24-year-old sang her hit song “I Kissed A Girl” - complete with twists and turns along the way.

Talking about the performance just prior to the show, Katy told MTV News, “I’m going to be ascending from the ceiling… By banana!”

Tossing in a little retro choreography in her routine, Ms Perry added, “It’s a little 1940s Folies Bergère/ Rockette [style]. It’s definitely not [like Britney Spears’ 2001 VMA performance of] ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ or something like that. No anacondas on my neck. It’s definitely hopefully going to be one of those moments.”

Nickelback frontman gives up drunk driving appeal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has abandoned his attempt to appeal a conviction for a three-year-old drunk driving charge.

According to the Canadian Press, a similar appeal on constitutional grounds in another case was overturned, making it virtually impossible that Kroeger could get his conviction thrown out on the same grounds. Kroeger's lawyer, Marvin Stern, said on Thursday (February 5th), "At the time of the trial we felt that his rights had been violated. The state of the law has now changed and we respect the current state of the law and are bound by it and in law there's no ground of appeal left."

Kroeger was stopped for speeding in the early morning hours of June 22nd, 2006, in British Columbia. He was charged with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08, almost twice the legal limit.

The impaired driving charge was dismissed, but not the blood-alcohol charge.

Making his case to dismiss all charges, Kroeger's lawyer argued that the singer's constitutional rights were violated when a police officer asked him to blow into his face after detecting the smell of alcohol.

The judge allowed the evidence, saying he felt it was obtained legally.

Kroeger was given a one-year ban on driving and a $600 fine.

James McAvoy's Rent Boy Career Fear



James McAvoy used to think he would be typecast as a "rent boy or hooligan".

The 29-year-old actor feared his strong Scottish accent and working-class upbringing would prevent him from landing lead roles in Hollywood.

He said: "I went to drama school knowing I could do angry young working-class men from Scotland. And I thought, 'I'll probably come out being able to do that better, and I can play angry young rent boys or hooligans.'

"But it taught me how to liberate myself from class, locale, environment, the whole thing and just give yourself to being someone else."

McAvoy - who has starred in action movie 'Wanted', period drama 'Atonement' and children's film 'The Chronicles of Narnia...' - hopes to continue challenging himself with different movie roles.

He told Harper's Bazaar magazine: "It is nice to test the audience. If I had been offered the same thing over and over again, I would have accepted it. But it is the lot of an actor - your career is decided for you."

Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren welcome son Charlie Axel



Tiger Woods is a dad again.

The world's No. 1 golfer and his wife, Elin Nordegren, welcomed a son on Sunday, Woods, 33, reports Golf.com.

Woods confirmed the family addition on his Web site after news of the arrival was first reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The baby's name is Charlie Axel Woods, said the proud father, adding, "Both Charlie and Elin are doing great and we want to thank everyone for their sincere best wishes and kind thoughts."

This is the second child for the couple, whose daughter, Sam Alexis, was born in June 2007, the day after Woods placed second in the U.S. Open.

Were it not for the new arrival – and his taking time to recuperate after surgery on his knee – Woods, 33, would have been at Torrey Pines in the final round of the Buick, which he's played in 11 times and won six, says the Union-Tribune.

But as he announced on the PGA Tour Web site last week: "A lot depends on the baby, which is due pretty soon. That takes precedence over anything I do golf-wise. But I must admit, I am also excited about returning to competition."

Woods added: "Elin, Sam and I are very excited for the new baby to arrive, although that's when the real lack of sleep begins.

Natalie Cole's Winehouse worry

Natalie Cole has stood by her comments criticising Amy Winehouse for her drug use.
The jazz singer, daughter of Nat King Cole, took some flak two years ago for lashing out at Rehab singer Amy.

"I got into a bit of hot water for what I said about Amy Winehouse and I still say it again," she said. "I'm an ex-drug addict and I don't take that kind of stuff lightly."

Whatever, her comments were more judgmental (looking down on her high horse) type of thing.

The AV Club: Romance minus the schmaltz: 29 falling-in-love movies we actually believe in


OK it's almost Valentines Day and we need to think about romance, not pistol-whipping. The AV Club compiled a list of movies where the love doesn't seem totally contrived:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

1. Trouble In Paradise

The meet-cute is one of the many standard and stale features of romantic comedies, but there’s never been a better one than the charming encounter between two professional thieves in Ernst Lubitsch’s screwball classic. Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins, both extraordinary pickpockets, rob each other blind over dinner and fall in love in the process, each dazzled by the other’s sly artistry. (When Hopkins admits she lifted Marshall’s wallet, he replies, “I know, you tickled me, but your embrace was so sweet.”) Their efforts to fleece a perfume-company heiress who’s wilier than she seems run into complications, but the outlaw chemistry between them never diminishes.

2. Say Anything… (1989)

Cameron Crowe’s directorial debut Say Anything… is the gold standard for high-school romance movies. Lloyd Dobler—played by John Cusack, who still gets laid daily because of this movie—is a lot less cocksure than the typical male teen protagonist, who’s generally less interested in love than in having a last crazy summer before shipping off to college. Dobler is just a kind, decent kid, not an obnoxious hormone factory. He’s perfectly complemented by Diane Court (Ione Skye), a sensible, seemingly perfect honors student whose beauty belies the kind of profound loneliness that hits people between the ages of 16 and 22. People who had tons of mind-blowing, soft-focus sex in high school probably won’t relate to Say Anything…; everyone else will remember the awkwardness and confusion that goes hand in hand with the exhilaration of falling in love for the first time.

Updating a news report on Sunday that Tameka Raymond, 37, had a medical emergency, reps for Raymond's husband, the musician Usher, said Monday: "Tameka Raymond is in stable condition after suffering complications from routine surgery in Brazil.

"Her husband Usher is with her at the hospital," the rep added. "No further details will be released, and the family requests privacy at this difficult time."

On Saturday night, Usher (full name: Usher Raymond) canceled his performance at the Recording Academy and Clive Davis's pre-Grammy Gala. Davis told partygoers the singer had to bow out due to a "serious injury in the family."

On Sunday, Davis, CEO of Sony Music Worldwide, told PEOPLE. "I talked to his mom [Jonetta Patton]. My thoughts are with them, whatever they're facing."

The couple, married since August 2007, have two children.

Eyewitness At Hospital: "I Could Hear Rihanna Screaming"

Chris Brown filling up the car just hours before allegedly fighting with Rihanna... in the very same car.
[tube_fiend note: Isn't this the picture TMZ was saying was taken AFTER the assault? But Radar is saying it was taken BEFORE the assault. Which would make this whole thing a lot less confusing.]


A source inside Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles has confirmed exclusively to RadarOnline.com that pop star Rihanna was in fact treated there for injuries, allegedly inflicted by her boyfriend R&B singer Chris Brown. Since Brown's bombshell arrest on Sunday, there has been widespread speculation that the victim was 20-year old Rihanna. Now, RadarOnline.com can confirm it's true from an eyewitness who saw her inside the hospital.

The eyewitness tells RadarOnline.com: "It was some time after 12PM PST [Sunday] and I had been waiting in the ER department corridor when Rihanna was brought through the back entrance on a gurney, flanked by two LAPD officers. It was impossible to know it was her at first because when they wheeled her past me, she had the hood on her fuchsia-colored sweatshirt tightly drawn round her face and she was wearing big brown sunglasses. They took her into room 14 which was opposite me. It had a six-foot glass door but the nurses drew a privacy curtain around it."

The title of this article is a little misleading, as the alleged eyewitness doesn't really specify if she was shouting in anger or screaming in pain/fear/etc as the title implies.
Either way, I think CB's press release earlier is very telling. "He's a good guy, but human." Because, don't ya know, sometimes ya just gotta smack a bitch. It's human.
Stupidest press release ever.
UPDATE: Apparently, CB's statement is not entirely reliable. We don't know for certain that it came from his camp.

LeRoi Moore forgotten by Grammys

LeRoi Moore (1961-2008), 12 time nominated and 1 time Grammy winner, was shockingly forgotten by the Grammy’s. Lifetime musician, influential jazz saxophonist and one of the founding members of the Dave Matthews Band was left out of the Grammy’s annual Memorial Tribute. The Tribute is a video montage put together by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences honoring those in the music business that have passed in the last year. A number of known (and not-so-known) artists (and a photographer) were honored in the video but LeRoi was missed (or skipped, we aren’t sure.) While we are disappointed and saddened that the Grammys and CBS did not give LeRoi the tribute he deserves, they do not properly represent the music industry’s and the many billions of music lovers feelings. Although the so called National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences did not honor him, we at AntsMarching.org will continue to pay tribute to his contributions. If you haven’t already checked it out, or you want to revisit, here is an amazing medley of some of LeRoi's top moments with Dave Matthews Band (featured in Podcast #15) and a tribute article titled Remembering LeRoi (both put together by AntsMarching.org's own Jake).

Chris Brown Has A History of Abuse In His Family

Photobucket



Chris Brown has a history with family abuse, the singer revealed in 2007.

Brown, who was arrested Sunday night for allegedly beating a woman identified as his superstar girlfriend Rihanna, told Giant magazine that his stepfather used to beat his mother.

"He used to hit my mom ... He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself," the 19-year-old said.

"I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, 'I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day...' I hate him to this day."


Brown, who noted that he's studied martial arts, recalls telling his mother that he would "kill" his stepfather with a baseball bat one day.

The "Run It!" singer turned himself in to authorities Sunday, hours after police responded to a 911 call from a woman who IDed Brown as her attacker.

Police wouldn't reveal the woman's identity, but sources say a visibly bruised Rihanna was taken for treatment at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Sunday.

According to TMZ, Rihanna filed a report with police alleging that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.

Brown was released on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to go to court in March.

Jodie Sweetin's Custody Case

<br/><a href="http://i41.tinypic.com/21bolza.jpg" target="_blank">View Raw Image</a>

Jodie Sweetin has tested clear of drugs, her attorney Wilma Presley tells PEOPLE. The drug test had been ordered by an Orange County, Calif., court for both the Full House star and her estranged husband Cody Herpin.

"Her test is good, it's clear," Presley said.

Herpin also tested clear of drugs, his attorney Robert Benevente said. "Cody voluntarily took a hair follicle test and tested clean."

Both Sweetin, 27, and Herpin, 31, accompanied by their lawyers, arrived in court for a custody hearing Monday. The judge asked that the attorneys for both sides briefly meet in private before resuming the hearing.

Herpin has made repeated allegations in media interviews that Sweetin, a recovering meth addict and alcoholic, has abused drugs before and after their marriage and may still be a risk to their daughter Zoie, 10 months.

Sweetin told PEOPLE last month that she was "100 percent sober."

The couple currently share 50-50 custody of the child.

Sweetin filed for legal separation from Herpin on Nov. 19, seeking joint custody of their daughter. Herpin responded with his own filing on Dec. 4, seeking sole custody.

Tony Romo talks Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson will love Tony Romo even if he stinks

cowboysblog.dallasnews.com


Babe Laufenberg, the Ch. 11 sports chief and Cowboys radio analyst, is a hardcore football man. But part of his interview with Tony Romo that aired on The Score last night might end up on the pages of US Magazine.

When asked about the criticism that has come his way, Romo volunteered that he dates someone who gets ridiculed pretty often. He revealed that he sometimes debates with Jessica Simpson about which one gets ripped worse. Isn't that cute?!

Minutes later, Romo shrugged off a question about the downside of playing quarterback for the Cowboys.

"I surround myself with people that, if I suck, if I go out there and just stink and I can't do anything any more and get replaced by [Laufenberg] going forward, if that's what happens, OK, well, I know that these people are still going to care for me and enjoy the person that I am and at least know that I worked as hard as I could," Romo said.

Laufenberg, who threw six picks and a garbage-time TD during his brief time as a Cowboys backup, pointed out that Romo would have to really suck to get replaced by him.

"Well I've never had to do it before so I can't say I have any techniques. I've never had to kiss anyone on screen so it is all new to me," she told the Daily Telegraph at last night's BAFTA awards.

"Of course I am nervous about it. But, apparently it gets quite boring after a couple of takes, that's what Dan [Radcliffe] said to me anyway."

Last month, Grint revealed that he was also dreading the impending kiss, saying: "As I've known Emma for so long, I reckon it will be ten times worse."

Hollywood's on-again, off-again couple – Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson – are on yet again.

"They're back together," a source tells PEOPLE of the pair, who spent all of Sunday together at Wilson's Malibu home. Also there: Hudson's 5-year-old son Ryder.

Hudson, 29, and Wilson, 40, were most recently linked in Feb. 2008, where they appeared cozy at the Academy Awards last year. The two continued to hang out for several months – even celebrating Hudson's birthday in Miami – before breaking up again in May 2008.

"It was a pretty bad breakup," a friend of Wilson's told PEOPLE at the time. "Owen said it was a tough one. He definitely doesn't want to dwell on it. He wants to put it behind him."

The two began dating originally in Sept. 2006, after filming You, Me and Dupree together. They later split in June 2007, but remained "friends" at the time, a source told PEOPLE.

I love the fact that they gave him giant eye holes so he could still act with his eyes, in some scenes, and then they added the mask effects afterwards. Although it looks like he's just wearing a standard inkblot mask in some other scenes. I wonder why the difference?"

Why So Creepy, New Ski Masks?

"Sometimes it's as if merchandisers have never seen the movie they're cashing in on. For example, the makers of The Dark Knight Joker Combination Ski Mask and Beanie. Way to memorialize Heath Ledger, guys.

All Ledgerisms aside, is it wrong of me to be worried about people who saw The Dark Knight and thought, "That kind of creepy guy with the obvious lack of morality? I wanna have him on my face when it's cold!"? Also, what is a "combination ski mask and beanie" anyway? Now I know that I'm going to have nightmares tonight."

New interview (video) with Rupert Grint and Kimberley Nixon

It includes short clips from Cherrybomb! You get to hear his Belfast accent!

No embed code; this is also the SOURCE

I can't stop watching it!

ETA: I step out to run some errands and find out there's another video from the premiere and with more clips
when I get back!
The announcer is speaking in German.

You can see the girl who was pictured with him yesterday (she's in a wheelchair) crying after he hugged her. Awww.

There's also some longer clips from the film at the end, but the lady is speaking over it so there's no dialogue.

Also, ICM has various clips (including these)  in different formats here, including video from when he arrived in Berlin.

Idina Menzel to Guest Star on Private Practice!



Taye Diggs is bringing his home to work with him.

The Private Practice star's real-life wife, Tony winner Idina Menzel, will guest-star on the ABC series later this season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

In multiple episodes, Menzel will play the mother of a patient tended to by Pete (Tim Daly). To hear one source tell it, Pete's special brand of "bedside manner" might bring about an attraction between him and Menzel's character. At this early stage, it's unclear if Menzel and her main man will share many scenes.

Menzel met Diggs in 1995, when they were both cast in the New York Theatre Workshop production of Rent. They went on to costar in two other stage productions, including Broadway's Wicked (for which Menzel won a Tony, playing "bad witch" Elphaba).

Menzel's most recent TV gig was a pair of episodes of 2005's Kevin Hill, which starred — wait for it — Taye Diggs.

Rihanna Alleged Victim -- Deadly Weapon Charge

Posted Feb 9th 2009 11:35AM by TMZ Staff
TMZ has confirmed Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case and the allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.

Law enforcement sources tell us the crime report calls the incident assault with a deadly weapon -- we do not yet know the nature of the weapon.

The crime report gives the victim's name as Robyn Fenty -- that's Rihanna's real name.

Source´


ETA:
"I just got a message from Chris’ camp saying the following:
“Hopefully we will have a statement by the end of the day. Just know that this is being reported only 1 sided, but this is what the media does. We are saddened by this whole situation, but we will pray for the best and be Chris’ rock no matter what way this may go. Just know that Chris is a great person, but also human. Thanks for all of your support.”

So, there you have it. Expect a full explanation sometime today, and remember that CHRISBROWNWEB.com has you covered for all things Chris Brown! We’re still covering this developing story live."
Source
---------------------
So why, you ask, was Chris Brown booked for making criminal threats rather than domestic abuse, given the victim — we’re told Rihanna — had “visible injuries”?

Law enforcement sources tell us they typically book a suspect for the most serious crime they can be charged with — it’s then up to the D.A. to file any additional charges.

Given there were allegedly visible injuries, the crime of making criminal threats is punishable by up to nine years in prison. Domestic abuse is four years.
Source

-----------------

ETA2, from TMZ:

"Law enforcement sources tell us even though the police report in the Chris Brown arrest refers to assault with a deadly weapon, there was no weapon involved in the alleged attack.

The police report cites Penal Code Section 245 -- Assault with a Deadly Weapon. However, we're told there was no weapon involved.

We had been hearing there was an umbrella in the car -- which would have been the most ironic thing ever -- but again... no weapon is alleged.

One law enforcement source who has been dead on so far claims Rihanna suffered contusions and bite marks."

'Incredibad' Producer Expects to go Gold

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Anyone familiar with "Saturday Night Live" knows who Lonely Island is. The rap group birthed from three of SNL's cast members (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) has already had their comical hits on display with their latest track, "I'm On a Boat," featuring T-Pain on the hook.

Another producer on the album is J-Zone. Zone recently spoke to HipHopDX regarding the track "Santana DVX," adding that his song on the album, also featuring E-40, could very well earn him a gold plaque.

"These dudes are funny as shit, take it from the former court jester of rap," J told HipHopDX. "If they go gold, I get a gold record, and I want one. I damn sure ain't sell enough J-Zone or Chief Chinchilla albums for a gold record (maybe a wooden 8-track tape), so this is my only shot at putting something on my bare walls besides an old Muhammad Ali poster."

The album features a slew of guests, including some Grammy winners and some surprising acts.

"The album also features Justin Timberlake, T-Pain, Norah Jones, Sly & Robbie, DJ Numark and more, so I'm in prestigious company," J-Zone added. I can relate to [the video] "Jizz In My Pants". That happened to me in Wal-Mart last week.

Their album, Incredibad, is in stores Tuesday through Universal Republic.

And here's the explicit version of 'I'm On A Boat' which I don't think was posted.


Take a picture, trick
I'm a boat, bitch

This is a Muse post

Muse will launch its new album in September, a source revealed to the publisher's site for the British fans.

According to this source, the fifth work of Muse, still untitled, will lead a tour through
Europe.

It is recalled that in 2008, Muse stopped recording the new disc to operate in
Portugal, more precisely in the Rock In Rio Lisbon.

Late last year, the bassist Chris Wolstenholme said in a message to fans, it would be nice to launch the album "in the second half of 2009," but more important was to make "the best album until today, nor that for it only comes out in 2010."

LiLo and Samantha to spend Valentines Day in Miami



America's most blogged about couple (after Brad and Angelina, of course) have revealed their Valentine's Day plans. Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson will spend it in Miami, as Lohan hosts a special Valentine's evening at Passion Night Club in South Florida. Ronson will be on hand to DJ the event.

The last time Lohan and Ronson hosted an event in Miami, there were reports of lots of fighting, at the night club they were hosting on New Year's Eve and on the flight home, according to sources. During their last hosted event at Mansion nightclub in Miami Beach, videos of the couple having an argument were posted on YouTube.

Leaving from Miami International Airport, a source told TMZ that "there was lots of crying, tears, etc." Once on the plane, the source added, "Lindsay was so inconsolable the flight attendants asked if she'd like to disembark."

The couple were all smiles as they were spotted leaving a Vanity Fair party at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood last night. Let's hope their upcoming Valentine's event is more roses than reports from E! and TMZ.

Top 10 Hottest Women Size 10 and Up

Late last year, as men's magazines were coming out with their hottest women on the planet lists, we started to put together a list of hot, normal-sized women. As much as we hate the idea of having to create a separate list for women size 10 and up, we can't imagine the editors of FHM or Maxim drooling over a size 10 or 12. You can call Beyonce curvy all you want, she's probably still only a size 6. Hence the need for this list.

Unfortunately, we got stuck at around seven. We couldn't come up with ten relevant, prominent women who were the size of the average American woman (14) who could turn heads. Frustrated, we gave up on it. But last week, when we heard that Anna Wintour—who, to put it plainly, does not like fat girls—was going to fill the pages of Vogue with pictures of British songstress and former Crush of the Week Adele, we enlisted the help of our girlfriends to complete the list. It turns out most of them were frustrated, too, that they couldn't contribute more than one or two names. "This is sadly hard!!!" wrote one, to which we replied, "Actually, it's infuriatingly hard." But three months and 37 emails later, we have a list of ten amazingly hot women who we assume* wear a size 10 or larger. We know we've left plenty of beautiful women off of this list (and we hope you'll list them in the comments section), but we hope you'll enjoy Scanners Top 10 Hottest Women Size 10 and Up.

10. Keely Shaye Smith

Though she has an acting career of her own, we really only know Kelly Shaye Smith as Pierce Brosnan's wife—and unfortunately only because tabloids made terrible fun of some bikini photos of her. But we give Brosnan two thumbs up for his beautiful buxom bride of eight years.

Britney will tour with kids, has 50/50 custody



It's official... Britney Spears will go on tour -- for a price.

We've learned Jamie Spears and K-Fed have now both signed the document we told you about last week, which clears the path for Brit taking her kids on the road for her upcoming concert tour. What, you ask, is in it for Federline?? How bout $5,000 a week.

As we first reported, the way the deal goes is Jayden James and Sean Preston will follow Britney to three hubs -- New Jersey, New Orleans and Los Angeles. Britney will commute back and forth from each hub during the tour. She's also renting houses in New Jersey and New Orleans for Kevin if he wants to come along for the ride. But K-Fed gets the $5,000 a week, whether he shows up or not.

But wait, there's more. We've learned the deal Jamie and K-Fed signed memorializes the custody arrangement they've all been following since last year. Britney gets the kids 3 days and nights a week, according to the new agreement, which will remain in effect after the tour is over. We're also told many weeks, Britney has the kids more than Kevin. So in effect it's 50/50 custody.

Score another victory for Brit's lawyer, Laura Wasser, who sealed the deal.

Even as pope employs the internet, he frets about its use

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The moment holds a special place in the an nals of Vatican history: On the afternoon of Feb. 12, 1931, Pope Pius XI launched Vatican Radio, declaring in an intercontinental transmission: "Listen, O heavens, to that which I say; Listen, O Earth, listen to the words which come from my mouth. ... Listen and hear, O peoples of distant lands!"

Technology has aided evangelizing efforts since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, and in the past 30 years the Vatican has added a television station and a website. So the Vatican's launch two weeks ago of its own channel on youtube.com, a site better known for granting web immortality to entertainment clips and personal idiocies, was not groundbreaking.

Dalai Lama to Twitter on Tibet

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has joined micro-blogging service Twitter, attracting nearly 20,000 followers in just two days.

The Dalai Lama's Twitter feed -- twitter.com/ohhdl -- was launched on Saturday. OHHDL stands for the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

"Welcome to the official Twitter page of His Holiness the Dalai Lama -- administered by The Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama," the first message read.

It was followed several hours later by another message: "Our office is currently overwhelmed by responses from our first day on Twitter. We will make every effort to answer your questions in time."

The background for the page includes a quotation from the Dalai Lama: "Each of us has responsibility for all humankind. It is time for us to think of other people as true brothers and sisters and to be concerned for their welfare, with lessening their suffering."


Twitter claims more than six million users of its service, which allows users to send short messages known as "tweets" of 140 characters or less.

Cate Blanchett To Play Maid Marian



Cate Blanchett looks more and more of a certainty for the role of Maid Marian in Sir Ridley Scott's forthcoming film Nottingham after Sienna Miller was apparently deemed too slim and youthful for the part.
"I think Cate Blanchett is set to take the Maid Marian part," says Mark Strong, who has already been signed up to play Sir Guy of Gisbourne, at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards, at the Grosvenor House hotel, in Park Lane.
"She is a wonderful actress and it would make it a much classier film if she was in it."

Domestic Disturbia '09: Rihanna's Injuries Detailed

Rihanna Bloody and Bruised    



Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Rihanna's injuries were severe -- two "huge contusions" which swelled up on both sides of her forehead. We're told she also suffered "a bloody lip and nose."

One of the law enforcement people put it this way -- the contusions "look like an MMA fighter or something ... [It] looked like she was growing devil's horns."

We've also heard that Rihanna may have suffered bite wounds on one of her legs and arms, however, one source close to the situation tells us he doubts that is the case.

Chris Brown has been booked on a felony criminal threats charge. If the D.A. files the case, domestic violence charges could be added.

Source

If needed, I'll update this post with any major developments. Feel free to leave a comment with a story/link if you find anything and I may edit it into the post...

--

eta, from E! Online:

According to a source close to the investigation, Rihanna made the 911 call to police after Brown "fled on foot" from the scene following the attack. Two officers from the LAPD Wilshire Division found Rihanna in Brown's rented silver Lamborghini "beaten really badly and hysterical."

Brown had taken the keys to the car with him and Rihanna was basically left on the side of the road with the car.

"Rihanna didn't want anyone to touch her, she was in so much pain," the source says.

Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, had visible bruising and scrapes on her face and what appeared to be bite marks on her body. Officers took her to the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment.

A member of Rihanna's inner circle tells E! News her family is making plans to get her out of L.A.: "They want to get her back to Barbados. They want to keep her away from Chris right now."
   
...

Although the Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement Sunday night saying Brown had been arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats and could face additional charges now that the case had been forwarded to the district attorney, prosecutors tell E! News that the announcement was premature and the investigation is ongoing.

"LAPD are telling some reporters that we received the evidence but we have not received anything yet," says Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the county district attorney. "Normally it would come in today, maybe this afternoon, but no, they haven't presented it and I don't know when they will."

Robison says the probe is still continuing—unusual for such cases—as detectives want to make sure they do a thorough job, given that a celebrity is involved.

Brown's camp, including newly hired criminal attorney Mark Geragos (who has represented the likes of Michael Jackson and Winona Ryder), has remained mum on the incident.

Meanwhile, LAPD spokeswoman April Harding is shooting down a TMZ report from earlier today (which has since been corrected) that claimed Brown used "a deadly weapon" during his alleged attack.

"There is absolutely no truth to that story. If it had been a deadly weapon involved, he would have been charged with a deadly weapons charge," says Harding.

*******eta from TMZ (10:55 PM EST):

Rihanna's Injuries -- "Horrific"



Law enforcement sources have now gotten specific with us... police took pictures of Rihanna's injuries and they are "horrific."

As we reported, the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer's face -- there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. We have now confirmed there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.

And we now know this... Rihanna claims Brown struck her with his fists and that's what did the damage. There was no object used in the alleged attack.

Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, but before she left cops took photos. We're told the photos alone are "devastating proof of abuse."

And we've learned it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone in the area heard her screams and called.

But who's going to read it?



A long competition over Diane Keaton’s memoir, which compelled some of New York’s busiest editors and publishers to clear their schedules last week and fly to Los Angeles to meet the actress, drew to a close Friday night.

The winner was the flagship imprint of Random House. David Ebershoff, who has edited Norman Mailer, Gary Shteyngart, and Charles Bock, will work with Ms. Keaton, who intends to write the book herself instead of using a ghostwriter.

William Morris agent Bill Clegg, who sold Ms. Keaton's book and presided over the meetings, said last Monday that Ms. Keaton's book "could be an enduring book about mothers and daughters and the choices that women of her generation and her mother’s could make and did."

No word as of yet how much Random is paying for the book, though as Crain's reported at the beginning of the process late last month, the first round of bidding—which determined who got to take those meetings with Ms. Keaton in Hollywood—inspired at least one house to offer an advance worth $2 million. (Note: didn't Miley get 1 million?)

Pride and Prejudice..Zombified?

Elizabeth Bennet and Her Sisters about to Become Zombie Slayers



The new novel by Los Angeles-based TV comedy writer Seth Grahame-Smith titled “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” might add something new to the genre that has been lacking for all these years.

The parody of Jane Austen’s novel is due to be published in April and Hollywood studios are apparently already bidding to turn the new book into a blockbuster movie according to the Herald Sun (via Film Drunk) as it tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters as they become zombie slayers and are taught how to fight like Japanese ninjas by Mr Darcy. More than anything, the Japanese ninjas aspect is what makes this interesting to me.




Grahame-Smith gives some choice quotes to the Herald Sun, here’s how it reads:

“It quickly became obvious that Jane (Austen) had laid down the blueprint for a zombie novel,” The Sunday Times quoted Grahame-Smith as saying.

“Why else in the original should a regiment arrive on Lizzie Bennet’s doorstep when they should have been off fighting Napoleon?

“It was to protect the family from an invasion of brain-eaters, obviously.”

Grahame-Smith said about 85 per cent of his novel is Austen’s original text.

“I hated her when I was forced to read Austen in school, but when I started re-reading I realised she was a brutal, but very funny, satirist,” he said.

“I can only aspire to be as mean-spirited as she could be.”

Christian Bale's Sister: "He Needs Help"



Christian Bale's sister Sharon says the actor "might need help" following his four-letter movie set rant.

In a recently-leaked audio tape, Dark Knight star Bale can be heard shouting and swearing at director of photography Shane Hurlbut - who interrupted a scene on the new Terminator movie. "Seriously, man we're f***ing done professionally. I want you off the f***ing set, you pr**k," Bale screamed.

And Sharon insists her brother's actions were out of character - and urged him to take a break from Hollywood.

"It's terribly sad," she is quoted as saying. "I feel for him. He seems to be incredibly stressed and angry at the moment. This sort of behavior is totally out of character, and I think he might need help."

"He verbally attacked us," she added, referring to Bale's 2008 arrest in the UK for allegedly lashing out at her and their mother Jenny just hours before the Dark Knight London premiere. "He spoke in the same aggressive way he did to that lighting engineer. I wouldn't have minded so much but it was in front of my family and three children.

"I went to the police because I felt he should be cautioned. I thought one day his temper could get him into trouble.

"All I was trying to do was help him. I wanted him to stop and try to get help. He's a lovely bloke who adores my kids and family.

"I haven’t spoken to him about the latest incident but I wish him well."

Bale has since apologized for his tirade, admitting he "acted like a punk".

Cate Won’t Work With Brad


Cate Blanchett has joked that she will never work with Brad Pitt again because he is so loved up that it is “disgusting”.

The actress told The Telegraph that it is now in her contract not to appear with Pitt because of his devotion to partner Angelina Jolie.

Blanchett and Pitt are currently promoting The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, scheduled for UK release on February 6.

“Honestly, to see how in love with Angelina he is, it was really quite disgusting. Awful in fact. It’s in my contract now: I won’t ever work with him again,” Blanchett said.

The BAFTA-nominated film tells the story of a man who starts ageing backwards, with bizarre consequences.

Random D-List Celebrity Fued Brewing

From Panic at the Disco's Ryan Ross' blog:

So I made a huge mistake last night… That mistake was this: Going to see Criss Angel’s (you know, the Mindfreak) show “Believe”.

That is when I felt like he really flipped it on me. Because he still got our money, and sympathy. What I had planned on, was a night out where I could laugh at this man in person. Joke was on me I guess. I would go into detail but it’s just not worth reliving. Have any of you seen this? I cannot believe Cirque Du Soleil put their name on this thing.

Today Marks 45th Anniversary of Beatles 1st Appearance on Ed Sullivan
Music was reborn when Beatles took national stage




You may have read or seen reports on Tuesday marking the 50th anniversary of "the day the music died," when rock 'n' roll icons Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson were killed in a plane crash in Clear Lake, Iowa.

I guess that makes today the 45th anniversary of the day the music was reborn.

On Feb. 9, 1964, The Beatles made their first U.S. appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

DAHVEY JOOOOOONSUH WANTS TO BE IN PIRATES 4

Bill Nighy Eager To Sail Again For ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 4’



The announcement that there was to be a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” installment took no one by surprise. It was pretty much a given when Captain Jack Sparrow unrolled the map to the Fountain of Youth, and set off in pursuit of Captain Barbossa and the Black Pearl.

They may have to keep a weather eye on the horizon because if Bill Nighy has his way, Davy Jones will weigh anchor, and be sailing right behind them.

“I am technically dead but then again, who cares?” Nighy said to MTV News. “Everybody dies in the pirates movies. They killed Johnny [Depp] and Geoffrey [Rush]. Death is not permanent in the pirate world. I have a serious desire to come back.”

Nighy didn’t say whether he would like to return with or without Jones’ tentacles – but since he spent two films buried under CG effects, wouldn’t it be cool to see him without?

Casting buzz has been relatively scarce on the fourth Pirates, but a very persistent rumor has Russell Brand joining the Sparrow clan as Jack’s brother. We asked Nighy if there was any truth to the story, but the actor shrugged it off as rumor. “No, I didn’t hear that. I don’t think there’s any more news at this point other than that there will be another Pirates movie.”

So what do you think, ONTD? Yes or no on a 4th Pirates movie? I personally CAN'T WAIT - Will and Elizabeth were what ruined the movies for me, and without them it should be awesome. But they should bring Norrington back from the dead, y/y?

EXCLUSIVE: Chris Brown Withdraws from NBA All-Stars

A day after Chris Brown was booked on felony criminal threats charges, he pulled out of the NBA All-Stars, a league spokesperson confirmed to Usmagazine.com.

"Chris Brown has withdrawn from NBA All-Star events," the NBA rep told Us Monday.

The singer was scheduled to participate in the basketball association's All-Star festivities in Phoenix Sunday and was also planning to play in a celebrity game two days prior to the event.

Brown turned himself in to Los Angeles police Sunday night for an alleged battery on a woman, who was later learned to be his girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

Brown, 19, has also had his ads with Wrigley gum suspended after the incident.

"Wrigley is concerned by the serious allegations made against Chris Brown," a company spokesperson tells Us. "We believe Mr. Brown should be afforded the same due process as any citizen.

"However, we have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved," the statement continued.

The case is being presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. Additional charges, including those of domestic violence, may be filed.

Rihanna was planning on celebrating her 21st birthday on Feb. 20 with a big, splashy party in New York City.

However, I'm told her music label has, understandably, canceled the pricey soiree, which it had been putting together for about a month.

The bash for about 200 or so guests was to have had a carnival theme with various "sideshow" attractions, says a source familiar with the planning.

Although organizers were having difficulty securing sponsors for the party because of the economy, my source says Cîroc vodka had already or was about to sign on as the leading sponsor.

"They were talking about it being at Gotham Hall, but I don't think it was definite just yet," the source says.

Our prayers go out to Rihanna, and hopefully, she'll get the chance to celebrate her big day at a later date.

Spoiler Chat with Kristin "Wanda" Veitch Dos Santos



Will Jin and Sun reunite?

Is Charlotte a goner?

And which totally creepy long-lost Lost friend is going to reappear?

These are a few of the burning questions we'll tackle in today's roundup of exclusive TV scoop, along with the latest on Gossip Girl's Nate and Blair hookup, an Officemate who is coming back (for better or worse!) and you know we have to tackle that kiss everyone's talking about on Grey's Anatomy...

Kate in Wacahoota, Fla.: I'm tired of hearing about the Addison/Derek kiss! Tell me it's not going to happen. If Meredith and Derek break up over this, I'm out. Shonda Rhimes is a liar.
It does appear there is a kiss in the promo, but as I said before, there will be no romance between Addison (Kate Walsh) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey). My source said "your eyes are playing tricks on you." So fear not! And for the love of nonlovers with good hair, keep the pins away from your Shonda voodoo doll, OK?

Bella in Austin, Texas: Do you know if David will return with Donna when she heads for 90210?
There's a chance Mr. Silver (Brian Austin Green) will eventually head back to the infamous ZIP code. He's currently in Japan, but Tori Spelling tells us, "His lady Donna is in L.A., so maybe he'll come on over." For you hard-core original 90210 fans, don't worry, David's not hitting the speed anymore. He's clean and "he's a papa now," adds Tori.

Sam in Edmonton, Canada: Has there been talk of a sequel to Dr. Horrible?
Neil Patrick Harris tells me: "Joss wants to do more of it, but he's a very popular man at the moment." (Dollhouse premieres this Friday on Fox, in case you hadn't heard.) Still, NPH says he's totally down to do the sequel—assuming Joss wants him back. "I hope they don't recast it with Tobey Maguire. That would be a buzz kill."

Randall in New York: Any chance for a HIMYM musical episode?
Neil tells me he's pushing for it: "We're down to do the big Broadway version of How I Met Your Mother." But Alyson Hannigan is secretly hoping it doesn't happen: "I still can't sing!" Whatever! Neither can Sarah Chalke, but that didn't stop Scrubs from doing its award-winning musical ep. And something tells me Lily could be an excellent rap artist.

Rachel in El Cajon, Calif.: Do you know if Will Arnett will guest star on Amy Poehler's new show?
Doubtful. Amy Poehler tells me, "No, I don't think so. He's focusing on his new show on Fox." That's the new animated series Sit Down, Shut Up, with two of his Arrested Development buddies, Mitch Hurwitz and Jason Bateman, and Pushing Daisies' Kristin Chenoweth. Arnett, meanwhile, had told us he wouldn't guest star on any series that didn't have a name, so at least they have that one cleared up! (It's called Parks and Recreation, and you can hear my take on the pilot script here.)

Tony in Peoria, Ill.: I have to assume with the Jam wedding in the future, Roy may make another appearance on The Office. Am I right?
David Denman (Roy) is gunning for it saying his storyline was "left open-ended." "I'm sure there will be some point where Roy will show up at a wedding or something and cause some chaos," he tells me. For the sake of PB&J, I sure hope he doesn't.

James in Rocky Mount, N.C.: Have you heard anything about Hilary Duff's new show on NBC?
We just caught up with Duff herself on the set of Ghost Whisperer (more later), and she addressed the rumors that her Peacock net series would be called Barely Legal. "That's an option for one of my shows," she says. "It's one of my favorite pitches so far, but I still have two more options."

Spencer in Westlake, Calif.: Hi, Kristin! Anything on Heroes?
For scoop, check back tonight for the Heroes Redux. In the meantime, one of my faves, Greg Grunberg, just shot a new PSA for his epilepsy foundation, TalkAboutIt.org, with the one and only Mr. Rachel Green, aka John Mayer, and we hit the set. Mayer tells us he got involved because "Greg is one of the most human celebrities in Hollywood, and I feel like I'm able to come to somebody as a person and say, 'Hey, talk about it.' " Some of Grunny's other pals taking part in the project are Hugh Laurie, Jesse Spencer, James Denton and Adrian Pasdar. And of course, J.J. Abrams. Note to you Star Trek fans: Greg says he has a little "something" in the new movie that "you're going to have to find." So keep those eyes and pointy ears peeled!

Confirmed: Fe Leaving the JoBros, Getting Back with Brit



Britney Spears is working with her old assistant again.

Felicia Culotta, a longtime friend of the Spears family who worked for the singer from 1998-2007, had a brief falling out in 2007 around the time Spears, 27, famously shaved her head.

But Culotta (who went on to work as an assistant for the Jonas Brothers) tells Usmagazine.com she couldn't be happier about teaming up with Spears again.

"Britney has always held a special place in my heart, and over the course of the last year I have seen her work harder than she ever has in her entire life," Culotta tells Us.

"Sadly, I am really going to miss the Jonas boys, but I felt I had to be a part of this exciting time in Britney's career. I love Britney and missed her dearly."

Freaking Adorable Interview with my bb daddy, Clive Owen

Fatherhood is Clive Owen's favorite role -- right now



By Donna Freydkin, USA TODAY
NEW YORK — Fatherhood suits Clive Owen.

The actor's daughters, Hannah, 12, and Eve, 9, have finally figured out what their father does for a living, even though they're not allowed to see any of his very R-rated films. And they're trying to benefit from it.

"Weirdly, they've become obsessed by Friends. My oldest daughter is obsessed, and she knows I worked with Jennifer Aniston (in 2005's Derailed), so she's like, 'Call her up, call her up,' " Owen says with a smile. "I'm not calling her up. What are you going to say to her? They hit me up for weird things like that."

Not that he minds. His International co-star Naomi Watts says he's "very much a family man — he never stops talking about his daughters and wife."

friends warn geri halliwell: don't push fabrizio away!



Friends fear Geri Halliwell’s whirlwind romance with new fiancé Fabrizio Politi, an Italian multi-millionaire, could fall apart if she’s not careful. It's not the first time the mum-of-one has rushed full steam ahead into love.

Geri's been devising a new diet and exercise regime for her 34-year-old Italian stallion and sends him notes expressing her feelings.

But past boyfriends are said to have grown tired of how much Geri, 36, talks about herself.

"She’s into self-help and will discuss her feelings for hours," reveals a pal. "In the honeymoon period of a romance that might go unnoticed, but it could soon start to grate."

Geri’s spokesperson said last week that the couple are simply planning on "enjoying their engagement" and that there are no wedding plans yet. This is hardly a surprise as they only met in December and they’ll no doubt take some time to get to know each other better.

"She must temper her needy and controlling behaviour, which was a disruptive factor in her past relationships," says our source. "When she was with Chris Evans, she went through his fridge and threw out foods she thought were bad for him. She had no idea he’d find this intrusive and just thought she was being helpful.

"Having Bluebell’s mellowed her a bit, so maybe at this stage in her life she’s ready to face those compromises and commitments – time will tell."

A stylist who went round to Geri’s house recently reveals that the star has a surprisingly open attitude to nudity.

"Geri stripped naked and started rubbing moisturiser all over herself," he tells NOW. "It wasn’t a sexual thing – she just has a strange attitude to nudity and doesn’t realise some people might find it embarrassing."

Takashi Miike on Yatterman



Takashi Miike is best known in the West for his extreme films like Audition and Ichi the Killer. However, recently he's gone more mainstream, directing action films like Sukiyaki Western Django, family fare like Zebraman, and finally his newest film, the live action adaptation of the classic Tatsunoko anime Yatterman. The day before its world premiere at New York Comic Con in New York City, Miike took a few minutes to sit down with Anime News Network to answer some questions about his new film and its place in his very long filmmaking career.

Lady Gaga: Britney Spears is the Queen of Pop



What's it like writing songs for Britney Spears?

She’s a nice girl – I just feel very honoured that she wanted to sing my song. I used to scream for her in Times Square and now I work for her. When I was 13 she was the most provocative performer of my time. I love her so much!

Did you share any tips with her?

Britney certainly doesn’t need any freakin’ tips from me! Britney Spears is the queen of pop. I was learning from her.

Waters' Kids Movie Scrapped



Hairspray creator John Waters has been forced to scrap plans for a new children's movie - after studios rejected it.

The filmmaker, nicknamed the Pope of Trash, last year announced his plans to make a kids Christmas movie starring Johnny Knoxville.

He described the film, to be titled Fruitcake, as "Little Rascals on acid".

But the movie has been axed, and Waters is blaming the economy, and unpredictable studio executives.

He says, "I can't get it made.

"It's a children's movie. I thought it would do well, but it's not."

And he insists he is baffled by the decision: "I saw The Reader. Here's a movie that asked you to root for a paedophile Nazi guard. That got made."

Waters admits he is worried about where his next paycheque will come from - now his Broadway shows Hairspray and CryBaby have closed - adding, "In this economy, I'm going to have to do a puppet show."
