2.16.09: A note from Trent and a wave goodbye

Towards the beginning of my career in Nine Inch Nails, our biggest break came in the form of an invitation to perform a series of shows with Jane's Addiction. These performances essentially created and defined the term "alternative" rock in the US, created an ongoing festival franchise that is still thriving (Lollapalooza), set the stage for Nirvana to shift popular taste a few months later, and were really fucking FUN to play and attend - truly the best times I've had. The shows were epic. So epic, they propelled NIN to the "next level" (whatever that means), but caused Jane's to implode. The band broke up at the end of that tour.

Fast forward to the present. Corporate rock STILL sucks. A friend tells me they saw the original Jane's lineup play a tiny show in LA that was unbelievable. I break out my Jane's records and am amazed by how vital they sound. These guys were the real deal and in this current climate mostly dominated by poseurs and pussies it was refreshing to hear something that sounded dangerous, volatile, beautiful and SINCERE.
Emails were sent, phone calls were made, dinner was arranged, ideas were discussed and the next thing I know we're in the studio experimenting. We laugh, we get to know each other, we cry, we yell, we almost quit, we record LOTS of guitar solos, we discuss, we actually begin to all communicate, we yell some more, we become FRIENDS, we laugh again and we do some great things. I get to see first hand why they broke up all those years ago but I also get the chance to see four distinct personalities that become an INCREDIBLE band when they're in the same room.

In NIN world, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of our first releases. I've been thinking for some time now it's time to make NIN disappear for a while. Last year's "Lights in the Sky" tour was something I'm quite proud of and seems like the culmination of what I could pull off in terms of an elaborate production. It was also quite difficult to pull off technically and physically night after night and left us all a bit dazed. After some thought, we decided to book a last run of shows across the globe this year. The approach to these shows is quite different from last year - much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted. Fun for us and a different way for you to see us and wave goodbye. I reached out to Jane's to see if they'd want to join us across the US and we all felt it could be a great thing. Will it work? Will it resonate in the marketplace? Who knows. Is there big record label marketing dollars to convince you to attend? Nope.
Does it feel right to us and does it seem like it will be fun for us and you? Yes it does.
Look for tour dates soon and I hope to see you out there.

Conan O'Brien reflects upon exiting 'Late Night' for 'Tonight'



Late Night With Conan O'Brien signs off Friday after 16 years and 2,725 episodes, after which its gangly red-haired host will pack up, move west and "reinvent" himself in his dream job: The Tonight Show.

In NBC's late-night game of musical chairs, Jimmy Fallon steps in for O'Brien on March 2, O'Brien replaces Jay Leno on the storied franchise on June 1, and Leno unexpectedly moves his act to prime time in early September.

But before all that, there's a bit of misty-eyed reminiscing to do. Since last week, the show has been re-airing some treasured remote segments, a mix of staff picks and fan favorites that includes Conan's apple-picking expedition with Mr. T and his quest to sell his 1992 Ford Taurus.

He has booked some favorite guests — Martha Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld and Norm Macdonald — and promises a surprise or two for Friday's finale, when the White Stripes also will appear. And there are the "silly montages that capture what this show is about," O'Brien said last week in his modest 30 Rock office, where boxes were piling up in the hallways.

"We're looking at all the different times I've gotten absurdly physical, or broken into song," he says. Another features all of the many robots, bears and Lincolns that have appeared.

"We're trying to walk the line between these being kind of normal shows" and greatest hits. "You don't want to get too self-indulgent," he says. "I don't want it to be a two-week salute to me. I'm not dying; this isn't Lou Gehrig's final speech. I'm being moved to the Los Angeles branch."

Though he's destined for an earlier time slot and a higher profile, it's easy to forget that when he replaced David Letterman on Late Night in 1993, O'Brien was a 29-year-old Harvard grad who had written for The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live but had no on-camera experience. That didn't inspire much confidence from NBC, which gave him a series of very short commitments to prove himself.

As Friday nears, O'Brien is reflective. "I'm a sentimental person who's trying very hard to be a tough cynical person," he says. But the looming change is "a little too big to contemplate. This show has been more than a job for me; I met my wife on a remote, and we have two kids. I got my dog through this show. This has been a huge central part of my life." Late Night's bulletin board has taken note: "THIS. IS. WEIRD." is scrawled on note cards that normally list upcoming sketches and guests.

"I'm quite good at denial, so I've been keeping it at bay," he says. "There's not time to dwell. (But) when we're doing the last show, it'll hit me. I'll probably cry like a baby."

Say it isn't the end...

Newest and (possible) last Futurama DVD hits stores next Tuesday February 24th, 2009!


So, how does Futurama: Into The Wild Green Yonder---the fourth, and possibly final, Futurama adventure---stack up? Continuing the environmentally-driven themes of Bender's Game, our story revolves around Leo Wong (Amy's rich dad, who owns Mars) and his eco-unfriendly developmental habits. Not content with the size of his miniature golf course, Leo plans to destroy a large arm of the Milky Way for expansion purposes. A curious incident at Wong's construction facility injures Fry (and several members of a group of female protesters, who we'll hear from again), which gives the lovable goofbag mind-reading abilities. Deciding to use his powers to win at poker---and with the help of a tin-foil hat, to block out the voices when needed---Fry competes against Bender and a gaggle of greedy gamblers. Meanwhile, Leela departs to join the feminist protesters, we're introduced to "The League of Mad Fellows" and the story of a mysterious dark enemy unfolds. Long story short: the fate of the universe depends on Fry and company, even if they aren't completely aware of it.

Sam Raimi Remaking House of Flying Daggers?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


House of Flying Daggers is a truly fantastic foreign film and today while doing some morning reading of Production Weekly I discovered Sam Raimi it seems is going to be remaking the movie. The trend of remaking films is definitely getting out of hand when we start remaking classic asian films which feel like they were literally just released.

I am a huge fan of Sam Raimi but have to ask why he or his production company is so fixated on remakes as of late. They have alot of really cool new original stuff coming including Drag Me To Hell and BURST so what gives with the remakes? Are you interested in seeing a remake of this film?

'Gossip Girl' Co-Star Dishes On Dorota's Future

Actress Zuzanna Szadkowski reveals the quiet maid's secret wish for 'Miss Blair.'

</div>

Zuzanna Szadkowski plays Blair Waldorf's loyal maid, Dorota, on "Gossip Girl." But despite her silly uniform, her character has become so much more than a servant. As Leighton Meester's Blair relies on her as a sounding board, accomplice and shoulder to cry on, Dorota has evolved into the cult heroine of a show about spoiled, rich teenagers.

Like Dorota, Szadkowski said she only wants the best for Blair and her steamy, on-again, off-again relationship with the show's resident cad, Chuck Bass. "I would love to see Miss Blair happy in the Blair and Chuck relationship," she told MTV News. "That's the most important thing to Dorota. Chuck has his charms and he also has a few lessons to learn in life, so hopefully the two of them keep having the sparks."

David Cameron apologises for being a Morrissey fan

The Conservative leader pays tribute to the star



Morrissey Pictures, Images and Photos

Conservative Party leader David Cameron has apologised for being a fan of Morrissey and The Smiths.

Cameron was speaking on the BBC programme 'The One Show' yesterday (February 16) when he made the admission.

Morrissey was the main guest on the show, footage of which can be watched at bbc.co.uk/theonehow for a limited time.

Speaking as part of a montage of celebrities - including Frank Skinner and Simon Armitage - Cameron made reference to The Smiths' 1984 single 'Heaven Know I'm Miserable Now' before making his admission.

"I'm sure when Morrissey finds that he's getting an endorsement from the leader of the Conservative Party, he will think 'Heaven knows I'm miserable now'," Cameron said. "But I'm a big fan, I'm afraid. Sorry about that."

Morrissey remained tight-lipped in reaction to the praise, saying: "It's difficult to make comment because you might hurt people's feelings."

The singer, who said his mum is a fan of 'The One Show', was also asked to comment on unemployment, British architecture and the multi-talented skills of drummers during the programme.

However, he refused to join 'The One Show''s presenters Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley in trying to see if he could circle his foot and draw the number six with his hand at the same time. "I could do both," Morrissey said, "...If there was time."

The singer later looked perplexed as he received tips on how to heal a blocked nose and cure a stitch from 'The One Show''s science correspondent Marty Jopson.

Lehho.

Hope all is well. Happy New and Many Happy to Me. And Her. I am now Amazingly Old. Where's all the wisdom I was promised? Ho hum....

This morning I've been listening to music beginning with the letter B. B is a good one - I've had Bach, Berio and Beck and I've only just finished my Breakfast. (Beetawix, two. I wanted Ddreshies but my son announced that since he'd 'helped' in the supermarket, they were all his and that he was going to eat them every tuesday and wednesday for the rest of his life...."but it's monday" I mumble. He passes me the Beetawix with a tiny shake of his lovely head.)

Anyhoooo. Tomorrow I shall listen to the C's. Chopin, Cocteau Twins, Chicago....Mmmmmm. I wonder what the best letter will be? Any Thoughts?

To business. I am being coaxed from my burrow a few times over the next few weeks. Perhaps you would like to join me? I played a solo gig on 13th Feb at the Town Hall in New York with the excellent Martin Sexton. Saturday night after, I popped up in Brooklyn somewhere kooky with KaiserCartel for some Valentines hi-jinx. Then back to the burrow for a few weeks seeing if I can find my nuts!
Then in May I'll be releasing 'Words and Music' in the UK and doing a few solo dates in lovely venues in lovely towns. (details will emerge...) Come and see. I'll be taking requests....

That's it. That's all there was.
What's next - The Band or perhaps a little Belinda.....?
Have a good time. All the time.

Gerard Butler linked to Bollywood Star Priyanka Chopra



Priyanka Chopra seems to be unsure about the kind of man she wants. That is probably why she is on a dating spree these days. After reports of her 'Facebook' romance with Shahid, rumours of her proximity with Scottish actor Gerard Butler have surfaced.

The couple is bonding over lunch, phone and SMS. Technology seems to be a boon as far as multiple liaisons are concerned.

Priyanka and Gerard first met at the inauguration of Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai’s latest iconic luxury resort, in November 2008. The two have been in regular touch with other.

Also rumours of her possible reunion with Hurman Baweja have appeared.

Gerard has been linked to many women including Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and Naomi Campbell.

RDJ * Sherlock n&#39; Watson
  • lasamy

new RDJ project?


Robert Downey Jr and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star in Warner Bros’ The Days Before and Timur Bekmambetov is in negotiations to direct, according to Production Weekly.

Produced by 300 producer Gianni Nunnari, the sci-fi action spec script was written by Chad St. John (who previously worked on the unproduced script The Further Adventures of Doc Holiday for Bruce Willis). Days Before tells the story of a race of aliens who invade Earth by traveling backwards through time and wiping out humanity, one day at a time, yesterday by yesterday. One man attempts to stay “a yesterday ahead of them”, and every time he must try to convince the world that “the end is coming”, again.

Sounds like a promising sci-fi concept, and if Downey Jr is in fact involved, I’m in. Bekmambetov is an extremely visual director, notable for the Night Watch series and most recently the American comic book adaptation Wanted.

Emily Blunt Says Rupert Friend Is The Definition "Of A Real Man"



Emily Blunt says her on screen love interest Rupert Friend is "the definition of a real man."


The British actress, who plays Queen Victoria in new movie "The Young Victoria," thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Keira Knightley's boyfriend.

Emily said: "I tell you, hearts will melt over Rupert. He is the definition of a real man in the film. He has such dignity about him naturally. He brought a likeability and selflessness to Albert without making him look weak."

In the movie, Rupert plays Victoria's husband Prince Albert. Emily says she found it easy to identify with the former British monarch because they deal with similar pressures in their lives.





i can't wait to see this ^___^ we finally get a period drama without keira, but not really, because her man is in it. muahaha

Freida Pinto's secret wedding?

Freida Pinto and Rohan Antao had a secret wedding in Goa in December 2007; she dumped him after the success of her debut film, Slumdog Millionaire

The controversies that Freida Pinto is embroiled in are directly proportionate to the adulation that she is enjoying post Slumdog Millionaire. After several rumours of her promptly calling off her engagement and dumping fiancé Rohan Antao after she shot to fame, there is a new secret that we recently heard about Freida.

According to a source, Freida and Rohan had a secret wedding in Goa in December 2007. In fact, Freida got her wedding gown made from a designer in Lokhandwala after clearly telling the designer that it was for her wedding.

Apparently, Lindsay Lohan has bounced back from her bout of Valentine's Day weekend illness.

The 22-year-old actress, who had to bail on a club-hosting gig with her GF Samantha Ronson on Saturday because the two supposedly were ill, was spotted by TMZ heading to Chace Crawford's pad in New York today.

At six in the morning.

Probably while Ronson lay sick in bed, nursing her flu and ear infection.

Lohan's feelings for Crawford, 23, have been a matter of public record for months. Back in October LiLo made a spectacle of herself at the Diesel Rock N' Roll Circus party by hanging all over Chace all night.

"Some part of her body was always touching him—at one point hip to hip," an eyewitness said at the time. "She was also giving him the filthiest looks, whispering in his ear, and turning everything he said into an innuendo."

For the record, Lohan was quick to tell TMZ's observers that there's nothing going on between her and Crawford. But come on; a 6 a.m. visit? Judging from Lindsay's increasingly skeletal state, she clearly wasn't popping in to see if Chace wanted to go to grab some breakfast.

Dolly Parton to receive honorary doctorate



February 17, 2009

To: UT Knoxville Faculty, Staff and Students
From: Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek
Subject: Dolly Parton to Receive Honorary Doctorate

I'm writing to let you know about an important moment in the life of our university that will take place this spring, pending approval next week by our Board of Trustees.

With the approval of the Faculty Senate, we have nominated Dolly Parton -- one of East Tennessee's most famous daughters -- to receive an honorary doctoral degree from UT Knoxville. The degree, a Doctor of Humane and Musical Letters, would be conferred on May 9 at the College of Arts and Sciences commencement in Thompson-Boling Arena.

Her life's work as an entertainer, philanthropist and cultural ambassador for this state uniquely distinguish her as a person worthy of this honor, and she would be only the second recipient of an honorary doctorate from UT Knoxville.

Rihanna Appalled by Brown's Apology?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Singer Rihanna's camp has declined to officially comment on Chris Brown's apology statement, but sources say that the "Umbrella" crooner is "appalled" by Brown's statement.

"All of us, including Rihanna, don't understand how he can say he's sorry on the one hand, but still... does not admit any guilt," a Barbados pal of Rihanna tells the Chicago Sun-Times. "He should have expressed more contrition."

After a week of negative press for Chris subsequent to the alleged abuse of Rihanna, Brown released a statement saying he was "sorry and saddened... over what transpired," but did not go into detail about the altercation.

A source close to the Rihanna told the newspaper that RiRi is "royally pissed off" at what she calls Brown's "cavalier and arrogant statement."

Both singers are currently keeping a low profile. Chris is due in court March 5.

Kelly Clarkson Makes It Known That Celebrities Have Cellulite

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Think Kelly Clarkson looks too good to be true on the cover of her upcoming CD? You're right, says the singer.

"No girl is perfect," Clarkson – who joked on her blog last month that "they Photoshopped the crap out of me!" on her sexy All I Ever Wanted cover image
– told a group of Girl Scouts recently. "No girl wakes up every day and is like, 'I'm awesome!'"

In fact, she told the group of about 20 pre-teens gathered in Nashville Feb. 11 for a self-esteem workshop sponsored by Dove, "just to let you know everyone in the magazines is Photoshopped! Beyoncé is one of the most beautiful girls in the world but she gets Photoshopped too. We're all human!"

Clarkson, 26, knows what it's like to have her body image picked apart. "It affected me when people were saying about me and some other artists that we were the 'thicker' ones," she tells PEOPLE. "I'd be a liar if I said I was always fine with it. But I'm wise enough by now to know that you're never going to please everyone so you may as well stop trying."

It was a lesson the American Idol champ learned when she appeared on the show seven years ago and saw her voice – and image – become fodder for gossip.

"I learned right then to stop reading press. Either you're going to get a big head or you'll get depressed and neither one is great. I don't buy magazines like that. Even if I'm not in them, it's just healthier to get away from that kind of thinking," she says. "It's horrible – they'll show celebrities with cellulite and it's like, 'Of course celebrities have cellulite! We're not fem-bots!'"

Clarkson says she's seen the effect of such body image scrutiny on friends in the public eye. "They melt down because of it," she says. "There is a lot of pressure."

But the singer, whose album All I Ever Wanted is due out March 10, says she's come to terms with it.

"When I'm on the red carpet, it's not even a question anymore," says Clarkson. "Usually people are very encouraging and tell me they love that I'm normal."

Normal was plenty good for 10-year-old Shelby Davis, one of the Girl Scouts attending the workshop.

"She has a whole bunch of self-esteem," Davis says of the Grammy-winning star. "She's someone you can look up to."

Quentin's Gift to Nazi Haters



QUENTIN Tarantino's new war movie, the strangely spelled "Inglourious Basterds," is shaping up to be the blood-spattered antidote for anyone who's depressed by the recent torrent of Holocaust movies - it's one big slaughterfest in which hundreds of Nazis are gleefully executed in the most gruesome ways possible.

"If you thought Nazis died in 'The Dirty Dozen,' brother, you ain't seen nothing yet," film critic Harry Knowles - who visited the German set of the Harvey Weinstein-produced picture - writes on Ain't It Cool News. "There are a [bleep]load of Nazis dying. Seriously."

In the movie, Brad Pitt heads up a team of "Bowery Boy Jews seemingly right from the heart of Hell's Kitchen" who are out to collect 100 Nazi scalps each, according to Knowles. The plot goes from broad comedy to outright horror. In one scene, a soldier played by Eli Roth takes a bat to one Nazi, which ended up "splattering Nazi-brain blood all over me and my script, even though I was a good 15 to 20 feet away," Knowles says. (Roth's casting is a bit of an inside joke as he's also the director who grossed out audiences with the torture-porn shocker "Hostel.")

In another scene, actor Omar Doom, who's described as looking like a "young Al Pacino," effortlessly scalps some Germans while machine-gunning others.

An insider said: "The Nazis really get their comeuppance. It's a big change from all the downbeat Holocaust films over the holidays," referring to "The Reader," "Valkyrie," "Defiance," "Good," "Adam Resurrected" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas."

Tarantino told Empire magazine that one Scene, set in a basement bar, will resemble " 'Reservoir Dogs' but with Nazis and in German." He adds: "The Basterds are acting like the Apaches in a no-win situation."

The flick - which co-stars Mike Myers, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Kruger, Cloris Leachman and Rod Taylor - is set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival this spring.

Kanye: "That's so gay" should be a compliment

Kanye West tells Details magazine that the phrase "that's so gay" should be made a compliment.

WestdetailsSays Kanye: "Titles are very important. I like to embody titles, y'know, or words that have negative connotations, and explain why that's good. Take the word gay—like, in hip-hop, that's a negative thing, right? But in the past two, three years, all the gay people I've encountered have been, like, really, really, extremely dope. Y'know, I haven't, like, gone to a gay bar, nor do I ever plan to. But where I would talk to a gay person—the conversation would be mostly around, like, art or design—it'd be really dope. From a design standpoint, kids'll say, 'Dude, those pants are gay.' But if it's, like, good, good, good fashion-level, design-level stuff, where it's on a higher level than the average commercial design stuff, it's, like, gay people that do that. I think that should be said as a compliment. Like, 'Dude, that's so good it's almost . . . gay.'"

Adds Details: "West's friends and professional adjuncts, who quietly pass in and out of his loft throughout the day, start cracking up, and he leaves his chair for a bit of stand-up: 'Dude, that's so good it's almost gay!' 'Dude, you pay real attention to detail—that's almost, like, gay!' 'You had a whole conversation with that girl without bringing up sex? That was, like, gay!'"

Shia LeBeouf to be 'The Associate'



Shia LaBeouf, 22, has signed on to star in an adaption of John Grisham's legal thriller The Associate.

Variety reports that The Departed screenwriter William Monahan will pen the screenplay, and LaBeouf will star as a Yale Law School student who is blackmailed into joining a law firm that is working on a multibillion-dollar lawsuit.

LaBeouf reportedly hit upon starring in a film adaption of the novel while working (with a busted paw) on the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Legal intrigue in the courtroom will probably be a little more sedate than battling highway-devouring robots from outer space.

LaBeouf is also branching out behind the camera these days—he recently helmed a video shoot for his favorite band Rumspringa.

And to think, just a couple of years ago he was Even Steven.

BLIND ITEM REVEALED

Angela Kinsey of the Office divorcing



So, if you will recall, I ran a blind item last week which was close to being revealed. Apparently it is going to be revealed in the next day or so, and so I might as well be first. Angela Kinsey and her husband are getting divorced. They have actually been separated since shortly after the birth of their child. Infant actually. Angela's sister-in-law and her husband's sister is the President of Lifetime.

Original Blind Item:
This really could be something that is not a blind item, but the person who gave it to me really wants it as a blind rather than with a big screaming EXCLUSIVE all over it. I don't have the why yet, but it is supposed to be very interesting. You have a B- list television actress from one of the best television ensemble comedies of all time and she is getting divorced from her well connected industry husband who has had a sporadic career despite his connections. Even though they have a very, very, very young child the marriage has no chance of making it.

'Slumdog Millionaire' composer: 'M.I.A. wants to play Oscars'



AR Rahman, who composed the soundtrack to 'Slumdog Millionaire', has said that MIA has been thinking up innovative ways to be able to perform at the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood on February 22 - despite having recently given birth.

The composer of the hit film, which features MIA's song 'Paper Planes', told BBC News that she wanted to play at the ceremony - just weeks after she performed live heavily pregnant at the Grammy awards, on February 8 on Los Angeles.

"That's the million dollar question," he said. "She wants to. In fact, she said she'll do it with a hologram. She has all these ideas. "I don't know how it's going to be possible, though. Having a baby is such an important thing in your life - more important than winning an Oscar.

Rachman went on to reveal that he was set to collaborate with Kylie Minogue on a new film project. "We're doing a song together which she'll perform in the movie," he said. "The film is called 'Blue' and is being shot in Hawaii and a lot of other places."

Shia LaBeouf: Five Things You Need To Know About His Video



This week Celebuzz reported on Shia LaBeouf's directoral debut—the "Minds Awake" video for the band Rumspringa.

Now, we can bring you five need-to-know facts about LaBeouf's big debut:

1) Shia is longtime friends with Itaru de la Vega, 22, Rumspringa's drummer. "They've been buddies since they were in pre-school," according to a Cantora Records rep. "So clearly Shia has been a fan of the band since the beginning."

2) This video was shot on a four-day road trip to guitarist/vocalist Joey Steven's father's house in Colorado, Jan 10-15. Shia himself says in a just-released statement: "We never had a concept. We had a plan to road trip to Joey's Dad's house in Colorado (which also happens to be the biggest grouping of monasteries and ashrams in the U.S.).

'With that in mind we Karouac'd it to Colorado."

3) The video was shot on 8 mm and 16 mm cameras with Shia at times "playing with the exposure" for the lighting affects, says the rep. "It's got an old school and nostalgic vibe."

4) The live concert section was shot under Shia's direction at the Unknown Theater in Los Angeles on Jan. 16.

5) Shia made a choice not appear in the video. "This video is about the band," says the rep. "Shia would be a distraction."

Please Don't Let Scarjo Anywhere Near Iron Man 2

Image and video hosting by TinyPic



Yeah, yeah; we've heard the rumor that Scarlett Johansson is in talks to take over the role of Iron Man 2's Black Widow from schedulely-conflicted Emily Blunt. And we have to admit: We're terrified.

It's not just that Johansson may be the acting equivalent of Benjamin Button, getting worse with each subsequent film she appears in (Or maybe she just did "disaffected youth" really well. But still; compare Ghost World to The Spirit to see what I mean), but even if Scarlett could, you know, act, we'd be hard-pressed to believe that she could pull off cynical Russian superspy femme fatale opposite Robert Downey Jr. - or, for that matter, not be acted off the screen by Gwyneth Paltrow, and just let that one sink in for a second. Gwyneth Paltrow, people.

Between Eliza Dushku nominating herself for the role and this news, we're even more hopeful that Fox will work out the schedule problems that threaten original Widow choice Emily Blunt's involvement - or, at least, that director Jon Favreau will display more taste in leading ladies.

Still unclear is whether the "New Moon's" co-star Kristin Stewart will also appear

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


After being the first outlet to report that M.I.A. had delivered her baby and would not be performing at this year's 81st Academy Awards, HitFix can now exclusively confirm that Robert Pattinson will be presenting an award during this year's telecast.

The "Twilight" star had long been rumored to appear on Hollywood's biggest night, but barring any unforeseen last minute conflicts, he'll be giving the franchise's legion of fans something to look forward to on Oscar Sunday.

Still unclear is whether Pattinson's "Twilight" co-star Kristen Stewart will also appear on the telecast and what award he will specifically present. And, obviously, speculation will now run rampant on who Pattinson's date down the red carpet will be.

Pattinson rose to super-stardom after being chose to play the dreamy vampire Edward Cullen in "Twilight." The first in a series of big screen adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's popular book series, "Twilight" astounded the industry by raking in $188 million domestically and $357 million worldwide.

The 22-year-old Brit will appear later this spring as Salvador Dali in the indie drama "Little Ashes." He's expected to begin production next month on the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon" which will be released Nov. 20.

Also making the cut? Diane Sawyer, Mike Nichols, Oprah Winfrey, Stedman Graham and Tina Fey.

As for Julia’s thoughts on the obsession with children of Hollywood stars? “I think it should be against the law to take a picture of a celebrity’s child,” she says without hesitation.

Kardashian 'Twinsies' Have Style Sixth Sense


Leave it Kim Kardashian and sister Khloe to pick virtually the same dress. What's unpredictable?

They're not fighting about.

The fashion-savvy sisters, on a business trip to New York Fashion Week where they're scouting looks for their Calabasas, Ca. boutique Dash, the ladies popped up at Badgley Mishka's runway show.

In almost identical asymmetrical black dresses, both from the design team, they look the picture of sibling bliss.

"They sent us each about a dozen dresses and coincidentally we just chose similar ones.  We described them to each other over the phone and we were like OMG did they send us the same dress?" Khloe writes on her official blog.

If this were E!'s Keeping Up with The Kardashians, a screaming, slapping fight would likely ensue.

But not in the magic of the Bryant Park tents.

"Clearly they didn't—we just have similar taste! Awww sisters," said Khloe

Lindsay cheating on Sam with Chace?



Apparently, Lindsay Lohan has bounced back from her bout of Valentine's Day weekend illness.

The 22-year-old actress, who had to bail on a club-hosting gig with her GF Samantha Ronson on Saturday because the two supposedly were ill, was spotted by TMZ heading to Chace Crawford's pad in New York today.

At six in the morning.

Probably while Ronson lay sick in bed, nursing her flu and ear infection.

Lohan's feelings for Crawford, 23, have been a matter of public record for months. Back in October LiLo made a spectacle of herself at the Diesel Rock N' Roll Circus party by hanging all over Chace all night.

"Some part of her body was always touching him—at one point hip to hip," an eyewitness said at the time. "She was also giving him the filthiest looks, whispering in his ear, and turning everything he said into an innuendo."

For the record, Lohan was quick to tell TMZ's observers that there's nothing going on between her and Crawford. But come on; a 6 a.m. visit? Judging from Lindsay's increasingly skeletal state, she clearly wasn't popping in to see if Chace wanted to go to grab some breakfast.

Zefron to present Best Song.

Apparently it isn't just Rob presenting at the Oscars, Zac is too. OMFG, if they presented together, hearts everywhere would just explode, LOL.



From E!Online:

The Oscars are taking a dip into the fountain of youth.

Fresh off the news that Robert Pattinson is going to be a presenter at this year's awards show on Sunday, I'm told that Zac Efron will be doing the same.

Sources tell me the High School Musical hottie will present Best Original Song during ABC's live telecast from Hollywood's Kodak Theatre.

INXS fires JD Fortune



J.D. Fortune Homeless and Living In Car

Rock Star: INXS winner J.D. Fortune has revealed that he was sacked by INXS and is now living homeless in his car.


Fortune rose to fame after winning the INXS reality TV show but whatever he made from that time has all gone.

“I don’t know where I am going from sofa to sofa, from night to night. I am trying to get through my life,” he told Canada’s ET.

His time with INXS came to an abrupt halt. “I was in an airport at Hong Kong and literally got a handshake. They said, “Thank you very much”. I found myself really alone because I had travelled with these guys for 23 months,” he reveals. “Some of the audiences we played for were upwards of 80,000 people”.

Despite his sudden unemployment, J.D. kept the story from his family and friends, until now. He says fans would recognise him in the street and ask for an autograph but had no idea where he was in life. “Every time I sign my name it becomes in my heart worth less. I’m very confused because when you do something like that it should be a moment of pride,” he said.

The departure from INXS may have had something to do with his excess drug use. During his time with the band, he was a cocaine user. “It got as bad as it needed to be for me to numb out the fact that I knew this was going to come to a screeching halt,” he said.

Jo Brand wants to be Britney Spears!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If this sneak preview is anything to go by, Jo Brand’s performance for Comic Relief: Let’s Dance is going to be absolutely blimming hilarious. Jo has stepped into her vintage Britney costume for the cover of the new issue of Radio Times – and it sounds like she’s been enjoying getting to grips with being Britney. “I had what you would call an initial rehearsal this morning,” she says. “So I’ve just learnt about 20 steps. I think the choreographer wanted to make me do them to see whether I was a) too wooden, or b) like a shed on legs, to manage it. Plus, I think they wanted to see whether I could remember all the steps – I’ve got a terrible memory.”

Jo has also revealed that she was given the choice of being Britney, Kylie or Beyonce for the show, which will see a host of stars trying their best to master iconic dance routines, but plumped for Britters straight away. “Personally I think Britney’s got more spark than the other two – with apologies to Kylie and Beyonce fans, who will now want to kill me,” she says. “There’s just something about Britney. To me she’s got a slight lack of control about her, shall we say, which I feel is really interesting.” We know what you mean, Jo, we know what you mean. The 50-something comedienne also says she thinks the Baby One More Time schoolgirl look was definitely more suitable for her than that red Oops! I Did It Again catsuit. “That would have been too Michelin Man for words,” she jokes.

The show starts this Saturday on BBC1 before the grand finale on Red Nose Day, 14 March. We’ll definitely be tuning in – and doing an even more shambolic job than Jo in the comfort and privacy of our living room…

Clive Owen doesn't care about his looks

The ‘Children of Men’ actor doesn’t make any effort with his appearance in his “normal life”, despite being regarded as a Hollywood heartthrob.
He said: “Any actor who starts taking the tag ’sex symbol’ seriously or thinks of themselves as a sex symbol has got some serious problems. When I’m in my normal life I care very little about how I look. Sometimes I have to dress up when I’m making movies, but that’s not me when I’m just hanging around.

The Best Moments From Kirk Cameron's "Fireproof"


Everyone knows about Kirk Cameron's wacky love of Christ. Since starring in "Growing Pains" in the '80s as Mike Seaver, he has gone on to star as "Insane Jesus Guy" in a bunch of Youtube videos. Back in 2008, Kirk came out of the woodwork to star in an awesome Christian film about a fireman who apparently loves Internet porn and is tired of his wife. As you can imagine, it was a box office smash. In case you missed it, here are the best parts.

I'm not sure if he's supposed to be beating Satan out of his trash cans, but he's doing a great job is he is.

He told me: “I don’t get her. I don’t think the song or the concept is as cool as people say it is. She’s supposed to be this high-fashion person but I don’t think the music fits. It’s not particularly edgy.”

btw, this was very unprofessional and uncalled for. He could have said he doesn't like her music, but he didn't need to go into detail. It's not like she's ever said anything negative about him/his band in public before.

Kate Moss dislikes Tom and Katie



British supermodel Kate Moss harbours a deep dislike of famous celebrity couples after she saw Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes use their A-list status to queue jump at a New York fashion event.

The catwalk beauty was attending the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in Manhattan last year and was forced to join a long line of guests waiting to greet the event's organisers.

Moss claims to have stood in the queue for an hour, patiently waiting her turn, and was outraged when Hollywood stars Cruise and Holmes walked straight to the front and were immediately admitted.

She tells New York magazine, "We stood in line for an hour or something to say hello... We’re going, 'I can’t believe this. You can’t smoke. You can’t have a drink.'

"(Then) Tom and Katie just walked right up to the front, and we were like, 'Who the f**k are they? They’re not even in fashion.'"

Woman Attacks Axe-Wielding Jason. Wait, What?



A party to celebrate the launch of new movie FRIDAY THE 13TH turned into a real life blood bath last week (13Feb09) - when one of the franchise's former stars was attacked with an axe.

Warrington Gillette, who played serial killer Jason Vorhees in 1981's Friday the 13th Part 2, was attending an event on Friday honouring the new slasher remake.

The actor arrived in full costume, wearing the character's famous ice hockey mask, and took to the stage to frighten partygoers wielding a real axe.

But his performance ended in disaster when a woman invaded the stage and tried to wrestle his weapon away from him, slashing his hand.

A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "She jumped on stage and tried to grab his axe. It was straight out of a horror movie. Lingerie-clad models were running and screaming, as a blood-soaked Jason ran off the runway to get to a hospital."

The character Vorhees has been played by ten actors over the course of 12 films, with Derek Mears playing the latest incarnation of the mass murderer.

Uh...weird.

Tori Amos: Abnormally Attracted to Sin + SXSW

Tori Amos to Headline Universal Republic Showcase at South by Southwest Music Conference on March 19, 2009

New CD, ABNORMALLY ATTRACTED TO SIN, Due Spring 2009

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- There will be thousands of artists and tens of thousands of music fans gathering at over 60 venues for this year’s South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX, but all eyes will be on groundbreaking star Tori Amos, headlining one of the most anticipated events in the conference’s two decade-plus history, on Thursday, March 19, at historic Austin club, La Zona Rosa.

The Grammy nominated singer/songwriter is headlining a star-studded Universal Republic Records showcase at the popular venue, sure to be looked on as one of the must-see events of the four day festival. Tori will be performing new songs from her upcoming Universal Republic debut album, ABNORMALLY ATTRACTED TO SIN, scheduled to hit stores and the digital domain this spring, as well as other classics from her influential repertoire.

Tori’s recent signing with Universal Republic is in keeping with the inventive star’s unconventional approach to the artist/record company relationship. Universal Republic will distribute Tori’s new album, as well as correlate other ventures in tandem with Tori’s prolific creative output. ABNORMALLY ATTRACTED TO SIN, her tenth studio album, is another innovative chapter in the artist’s trailblazing story. Every track on the album will be accompanied by a corresponding 'visualette,' featuring footage that has been captured over the past year. Shot in HD and Super 8, the visualettes will incorporate a documentary style.

Tori’s most recent album, AMERICAN DOLL POSSE, which has been hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as 'her best album in years,' was released in 2007 to a chorus of rave reviews. The captivating album, like many of her previous efforts, adhered to a strong conceptual theme, with Tori inhabiting multiple archetypal female personae, a testament to her willingness to continue to push the boundaries of the female singer/songwriter.

Regarded as one of the most emotionally fearless live artists in music today, her most recent world tour, launched in the summer of 2007, saw her soar with her first full-fledged rock band in nearly a decade. Media platforms such as the BBC lauded both her live show and album as 'returning Tori Amos back to the forefront of a genre she defined...still pushing her own boundaries.'

Voldefatass is pathetic, continues stalking Lily Allen



LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Lily Allen has lashed out at gossip blogger Perez Hilton after the two engaged in a war of words on the social networking Web site Twitter earlier this week.

In an interview on Monday with Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show,” when asked why she was tackling Perez on Twitter, Lily explained herself.

“Because I hate him. He really pushes my buttons sometimes,” Lily told Billy.


And it appears Perez’s buttons were pushed too. When contacted by Access on Tuesday, he said he was surprised by Lily’s use of the word “hate.”

“That’s sad because I don’t hate her. I actually really enjoy her,” he said. (LOL OKAY SURE)

During the Twitter exchange, Lily called Perez a “little parasite,” and a “bitter lonely old queen,” while Perez suggested the singer was only able to sell her new album, “It’s Not Me, It’s You,” by cutting the sale price, according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper.

“It was a bit of a back and forth like school children,” Perez said of the online banter. “It was very childish.”

Childish or not, Lily told Billy she thinks Perez “should go away.”

“I think he’s just a really negative, horrible person,” she continued. “And I think that he’s really mean to young successful women and he calls, you know, women… trying to enjoy themselves ‘sluts’ and’ train wrecks,’ and I think it’s just a really vile way of carrying on, I don’t think it’s responsible in any way.”

When asked why he thought the two had engaged in the social networking spat, Perez blamed it on his reporting of Lily’s behavior.

“She’s just upset that I point out every time she’s a hot mess, which is quite often. She’s a bit of a boozer, actually a very big boozer and repeatedly loves to talk about drug use and she doesn’t like having her own words and actions thrown back at her, but that’s my job,” Perez said. “That doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate her music – that, I do.”

But it appears for now, at least, their Twitter fracas is over.

“I just blocked him actually, so we shant be… Twittering anymore,” Lily said. “I just got so irritated. I was like, ‘You’re blocked. Go away.’”

Blocking, however, won’t deter Perez, who pointed out the Twitter tool has little after-effects.

“That means nothing other than I have to directly go to her page and I can still view what she says,” he noted.


Because she totes wouldn't hate someone that talked shit about her miscarriage, Perez, gee I wonder why she'd be so pissed off about that?! For those who don't get Twitter and wondering what the purpose is of "blocking", she won't get his @replies directed at her (e.g. any message starting with an @lilyroseallen) on her Twitter now. but wow, stalking her page...what a fat loser and a bully. DIAF.

News of the World - Jade Goody interview.

The story about Jack proposing to her has been posted, but I don't think this has. It's really sad to read but she's very brave. I know a lot of people (myself included) assumed Jack is just marrying her to get to her money, but in the second interview when she talks about the ways he helps her, it seems like he's really genuine.

It's 2 interviews she did with News Of the World on being told she only has 8 weeks to live. I used to really loathe her, but I just feel gutted for her.


It's very much TL;DR so I'll bold as best as I can!






UNTIL now, Jade Goody never believed she’d have to look death in the face.

She believed that if you really want to live, if you pray hard enough for it, if you throw every fibre of your being into making it happen— then you will.

But that would be in a world where everything was right and fair and where miracles really DO happen.

Jade prayed long and hard for her miracle—but it never came. The cancer she has fought so valiantly has finally beaten her.




It took just a moment for doctors to snuff out the only glimmer of hope that had been lighting up the long dark days since her operation last week.


On Friday afternoon they gathered around her bed and told her there was nothing more they could do. The battle was over and they were sending her home to die.


“I couldn’t breathe when they told me,” says Jade. “I just screamed and cried and said, ‘Can’t anyone do anything to help me!’ Because a few weeks ago when they first told me the chemo hadn’t worked they said it didn’t have to be the end.


Collapse )








I'VE LIVED IN FRONT OF THE CAMERAS, MAYBE I'LL DIE IN FRONT OF THEM TOO

THERE are two Bibles by her bed. One is called the Living Bible. The other, an altogether more cheery version, is called The Good News Bible.

But no matter how much she wants it, no matter how much she’s praying for it, there is no good news for Jade. And now, there’s not likely to be.

The drugs and the painkillers that are constantly being pumped into her body make it impossible for her to concentrate for long. But still she’s desperately trying to read her Bible, to make sense of it.

Clooney and others in "Room 23" photobook by Deborah Anderson

(Mods: I googled and didn't find it, might be old? Feel free to turn it down.)


If Anaïs Nin had a Nikon D3 and every celebrity in town on her BlackBerry, her photos would probably look a lot like those Deborah Anderson shot for the book, "Room 23."

Anderson, a photographer whose distinctive sensuality is located somewhere between classic French erotica and Helmut Newton -- is releasing a hefty coffee-table volume today filled with an impressive list of stars: George Clooney, Lindsay Lohan, Kid Rock, Sharon Stone, James Blunt, Cindy Crawford, Elton John.

But beware: This book probably shouldn't be left on the table with pubescent teens or lonely spouses in the house. Most of the men are in tuxedos and suits (except the ones who are partially undressed). And the women are in lingerie and slinky evening gowns.

It's a tradition of portraiture that dates to Max Beckmann, the German Expressionist. It's one in which the sensual charge comes from the juxtaposition of social formality and the erotic impulse.

Hugh Jackman called me again for another brainstorming session about the Oscars. He called me out of the blue a couple of weeks ago and said he wanted me to write some gags for him. We've spoken a few times and we've come up with some funny ideas I think. It's difficult for me because it's so mainstream, and 90% of everything that comes into my head is unsuitable. He's great though. He seems to have no ego at all. Nice bloke. Hope he does well.

Lead role for Vanessa Hudgens?

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic




Comics on Comics
(via JoBlo) says that Hudgens may be in line to take over the Viper Comics adaptation, Dead @ 17. In a recent podcast about the project's development,
creator Josh Howard said that producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers and G.I. Joe) is pushing Hudgens for the lead role, a murdered teenager who comes back from the great beyond to fight evil. At this point, it's just idle talk, but the source material sounds like it could be pretty cool. But, oh, is it ever different from High School Musical. Now, all of this is coming from the other side of the ledger, and Hudgens hasn't said anything at all about taking the role or even expressing public interest in it.

Rumors swirled about a late-night booty call with Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford (Linds was spotted going over to Chace's apartment at 6 a.m. on Feb. 16), but Lindsay tells Life & Style there was nothing romantic about her visit.

"It's not true. I am happy with Samantha. Chace is a mutual friend of ours. It was just a bunch of people hanging out, nothing more."

In fact, Lindsay had made a very public outing with Chace, Emile Hirsch, model May Anderson and others at a late-night dinner at NYC hot spot Southern Hospitality before heading off to several parties.

Lindsay later caught up with her crew at Chace's place, where everyone said their goodbyes, as she was jetting back to LA. (She had been in town for New York Fashion Week.) Says Linds of the 6 a.m. visit, "It was just a bunch of people hanging out, nothing more. I'm back home with my girl now."

Who says Valentine's Day is only on the 14th!

A new band involving a dude from Smashing Pumpkins, Fountains of Wayne, Cheap Trick and Hanson? Wut?



The Born to Rock and Roll and the Daily Swarm blogs both claim that there's a movement afoot involving Taylor Hanson, James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick.

The "supergroup" is called Tinted Windows, reports both sites. The BTRNR site's scoop says an album is due later this year.

I emailed Hanson's publicist this morning, and he said that there was "no 'official' word" on any project.

Stay tuned.

I am now officially watching the Oscars in their entirety.

The Oscars just got even more interesting if rumors are true.

Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Amanda Seyfried and Beyonce are supposedly all in a big musical number directed by Baz Luhrmann.

I know some of you will hate this idea but all these people plus Baz Luhrmann. OMG, please let this be true!

Paris Hilton has found a new victim



Are things getting a bit more serious between Paris Hilton and Amanda Bynes' ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt?

Hilton and Reinhardt did spend a lot of time together this weekend, according to sources.

I just got word that the hotel heiress and the young man best known for appearing on The Hills were with each other on Valentine’s Day.

Reinhardt even gave her a present for V-Day.

So what does a man get the gal who already has everything?

Sources reveal that Reinhardt gave Hilton a print of an Andy Warhol piece depicting Marilyn Monroe.

Hilton's grandmother called her Marilyn Monroe when the celebutante was a child. Plus, Hilton has even compared herself to the Hollywood legend. "There's nobody in the world like me,” Hilton once said. “I think every decade has an iconic blonde, like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana and, right now, I’m that icon."

Reinhardt was also by Hilton’s side the night before Valentine’s Day when she threw herself a pink-themed party at her L.A.-area house for her 28th birthday.

The question still remains if Hilton and Reinhardt are an actual couple. Sources say that their relationship right now is simply about “hooking up” on a regular basis.

“She's not serious right now with anyone,” one source said.

Reps for Hilton and Reinhardt declined to comment.

Reinhardt and Bynes ended their two-month romance in mid-January. Hilton’s last major relationship was with rocker Benji Madden, but they called it quits in November after being together for nine months.

JD Fortune Still in INXS



Contray to what was posted before, there is no solid confirmation that Jason Dean Bennison has been fired from INXS.


On 16 February 2009, JD revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada that INXS fired him from the band with a shake of the hand at an airport in Hong Kong. The band is once again without a frontman and their new album indefinitely put on hold. JD is back to living out of his car (pickup truck) and saving/stealing every dime to try and get his solo album out ("Death of a motivational speaker"). He said he's been off of all drugs including cocaine for the past 2 years.

NOTE: The above post is not 100% verifiable - as required for inclusion on Wikipedia. The status of JD Fortune and INXS cannot be independently confirmed at this time. The ET interview did not use the word "fired" and there was no mention that the band was "without a frontman" or that "their album was indefinitely put on hold." In fact, there was no mention whatsoever about the future of INXS or INXS albums. This calls the accuracy of the above post into question. Without confirmation from the band's publicist, the post appears to be premature, based upon limited sound bites which could be taken out of context. The second part of the interview airs tonight, February 17. Reserve judgment until all the facts are released.

I don't believe he's been kicked out until INXS confirms it. it doesn't add up. i'm thinking it's a joke or something. oh well i'll wait until INXS says anything.

 

Mary-Kate: Super Happy Twin

a sneak peek at Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen's Elizabeth and James footwear line...



from fabsugar:
When we first found out Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen were to create a shoe line with Steve Madden, we were elated with the thought of buying funky footwear at an affordable price. We like the Victorian meets dominatrix style, seen left, but the prices are far from desirable. The collection is set to retail from $195 to $500, which is unusually high since Steve Madden offerings typically range from $70 to $250. The line is slated to hit high-end stores in March; are you still interested in their shoes?


in case you forgot what they look like, here are MKA at an elizabeth and james event in october...

Kelly Clarkson loves getting naked



Kelly Clarkson loves to get naked.

The former American Idol star says she hates wearing clothes so much she takes every opportunity to strip off.

She reveals, "I've always hated clothes.

"I mean, I'm not naked all the time but if I'm in my house, hell yeah! Why not?"

Despite her penchant for flashing the flesh, Kelly says she remains mostly left alone by the paparazzi. "I live in Texas and I'm not that interesting - despite walking around naked," she adds.

The 26-year-old recently blasted claims she is a lesbian.

She said, "Lesbians tell it to me all the time.

"I'm like, 'I'm glad it works for you and I wish I liked women like that because often times men are very hard for me, but I happen to like boys.'

"I could never be a lesbian. I would never want to date [someone like] myself, ever. I'm a crazy person. I need some kind of stable, quiet man."

LYMELIFE trailer


he film revolves around an awkward, sensitive 15-year old boy, Scott Bartlett (Rory Culkin), whose family life is turned upside-down after an outbreak of Lyme disease hits the community spreading illness and paranoia. Scott's parents are on the verge of a divorce as his older brother Jim (Kieran Culkin) is about to ship off for war. Complicating matters, Scott has fallen in love with his next door neighbor, Adrianna Bragg (Emma Roberts).

Adrianna seems to be the only person in the world who understands Scott demonstrated by her equally troubled, less affluent family including an uptight mother, Melissa (Cynthia Nixon), carrying on a not-so-clandestine love affair, and a father, Charlie (Timothy Hutton), slowly slipping away from the effects of Lyme disease.

"Lymelife" is written and directed by Derick Martini and has already appeared at both the Sundance and Toronto film festivals. It is currently set to hit theaters on April 8th, in limited release.

The blog angry asian man, with the help of some readers, has identified the Asian with Miley in the chink-eye photo.

Well, a reader named Maria informs that the Asian guy in the photo is model/actor/photographer Chuck Willis. I did a little digging around, and that's definitely the guy in the now-infamous photo. According to his bio, he's a fashion photographer and a model who works several agencies across the United States.
