'Slumdog Millionaire' Fans, Here Are Five Great (Real) Bollywood Films

Oscar champion "Slumdog Millionaire" is hardly a Bollywood movie. In fact, it bears none of the telltale Bollywood film characteristics. It's dark and gritty. There are no love
The Oscar-winning movie was great,
but here's a primer on some real Indian films.
triangles or exaggerated theatrical monologues. The characters do not escape to the majesty of the Swiss Alps for elaborate, innuendo-filled dance numbers. In fact, the film's sole nod to the Indian film industry remains the dance number in Mumbai's Victoria Station during the closing credits.

But that sequence has legs! You can see more non-Indians attempt to "Light-bulb" to A.R. Rahman's "Jai Ho" lately than ever before. Bollywood choreography is appearing everywhere from "Ellen" to E!'s entire Oscar red-carpet cast and crew. It looks like America is ready to start watching some real Indian cinema, and since that's quite a large category to tackle, here's a little primer for Bollywood beginners:

Sexy Vegan AFI Bassist, Hunter Burgan, Blogs

Hunter with MCHammer at the Shorty Awards

Sexy vegan AFI Bassist, Hunter Burgan, did a lot of blogging (on his Twitter and his blog) today. Here are the highlights:

First, he responds to a question he is asked / posts why he became vegan:
Health, respect for the environment, respect for animals, aesthetics, fancy uniform.

Second, he discusses his new vegan shoe:
The Hunter - My new Macbeth shoe, The Hunter is available now! Order it online now, or wait another week and walk into Journey's to buy a pair. Your feet will thank you!

Third, he went grocery shopping:
Grocery Shopping - I bought some cereal, rice dream, two frozen burritos, new english muffins (from New England), soups, soaps, and broccoli.

Fourth, he mentions his winning at the Shorty Awards for his expert-level mastery of Twitter......and meeting MC Hammer!:
A few days ago I had the honor of receiving a Shorty Award in the Music category. The Shorty Awards recognize those individuals who have expert-level mastery (or just plain obsessive use) of Twitter.

The prize included a free trip to NYC and a chance to mix n' mingle with other Twitter savvy folks. CNN's Rick Sanchez hosted the event, and MC Hammer presented some of the awards (including mine) alongside Rick.

I had a great time and met a lot of really cool people, many of whom I hope to stay in touch with. Highlights of the trip include getting a personal tour of the Marvel Comics Headquarters...and of course hanging out with MC Hammer.

Fifth, he asks if there are any music fans:
Any Sonny Rollins fans out there?

And last, mammoth regeneration:
Yesterday at 3:30 AM I began the first of several mammoth cloning/regeneration experiments. My goal is to be the first person to successfully regenerate a mammoth. At 3:45 AM I realized that this was going to be more difficult than I first thought, due to the fact that I have no mammoth DNA. I consider this a minor setback. This week I'm going to head down to the La Brea tar pits, hop a fence or two, and "find" some mammoth samples. Wish me luck.


P.S. OMGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's my question!!

She had gathered all her strength to walk down the aisle for her fairytale wedding.

But as cancer-riddled Jade Goody returned home last night she could no longer hide her agony.

Fighting back tears, the mother-of-two had to be helped into her Essex house by her new husband Jack Tweed and her assistants.

Jade was so exhausted following the wedding, she spent most of Monday in bed.

'I've had the happiest day of my life,' she told OK! magazine at the wedding party at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Hatfield Heath, Essex, before poignantly adding: 'Now I'm ready to go to heaven.'

Ne-Yo Spoke With Rihanna About Altercation, Wants To Talk To Chris Brown

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When Ne-Yo found out about the allegations of violence between Chris Brown and Rihanna, he knew he couldn't get the story from a third party. Concerned for both his friends, the singer wanted to speak to them personally.

On Monday afternoon (February 23), a still-stunned Ne-Yo offered his thoughts.

"I wanted to talk to them before I made a comment," he said about the much-publicized incident that occurred several hours before the Grammy Awards on February 8. Brown turned himself in to police during the awards show and was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats and released. "I spoke to Rihanna. She says she's fine. She didn't go into detail about what happened. I understand it's a painful situation; I didn't push."

Like so many of Rihanna's fans, friends and family members, Ne-Yo said he was grief-stricken after viewing the recently leaked photo of a bruised and apparently battered Rihanna shortly after her altercation with Brown.

"I saw the picture," he said solemnly. "That just really — that hurt me to my heart, man. Again, I still don't know what happened, 'cause I haven't had the opportunity to talk to Chris yet. But to take it to that level really hurt my heart. All I can say is, I'm praying for both of them. They're both in my prayers. I haven't had a chance to talk to Chris yet. I just wanna sit down and talk to that dude and just explain if he doesn't understand: 'That's not something that's excusable, bruh. You have to get a little smarter about whatever it is going on in your relationship. You have to get a little smarter about how you handle certain situations.'"

Still, Ne-Yo refused to be Brown's judge and jury. "I'm not going to crucify him," Ne-Yo said. "I'm not going to do that. That's still my homeboy at the end of the day. For it to go to that level was wrong. I won't say who was responsible. I won't pick no sides. I'm just saying it was wrong [that] it had to happen like that, and I'm praying for the both of them."

Ne-Yo has had very close ties to Brown and Rihanna. In 2006, Brown and Ne-Yo co-headlined a tour that featured Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana. In 2005, Ne-Yo and Rihanna became two of the main pieces of the Def Jam puzzle when then-president Jay-Z had a hand in signing both acts. Ne-Yo penned his duet with Rihanna "I Hate That I Love You."

Hey, WATCH IT! Hilary will come up there, you know!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hilary Duff rows with fans at her boyfriend's hockey games.

The singer-and-actress regularly attends lover Mike Comrie's games for the New York Islanders and isn't afraid to confront "intense fans" who abuse her man.

She said: "I like to sit in the audience, you know I don't sit up in a box or anything, and people started to know that I'm sitting there, and they'll be like 'Mike sucks!' Or they try to rile me up and I'm like, 'Hey, watch it! I'll come up there, you know.'

"But I try to not be that crazy girlfriend."

Hilary - who has been dating Mike, 28, for almost two years - was not a fan of the sport when they first got together but has now learned more about it and considers herself a fan.

The 21-year-old star added to US TV talk show host Rachael Ray: "The first couple of games I went to, I'm like, 'These people are nuts.' They are, like, so into it. And then, I got really into it once I started learning about the game."

The thought of Hilary Duff confronting angry hockey fans is so LOLworthy :P

CW greenlights 'Melrose Place' pilot

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The CW's update of "Melrose Place" has received an official pilot order, and Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim has come on board to direct it.

The CBS Par-produced "Melrose Place," an remake of the '90s series about a group of twentysomethings living in the trendy Melrose neighborhood of Los Angeles, was written by Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin ("Smallville"), who will serve as exec producers/showrunners. Endeavor-repped Guggenheim, who won an Oscar for "An Inconvenient Truth," will exec produce as well.

Guggenheim, who is under a deal at CBS Par, is known for directing edgier dramas such as "Deadwood," "24" and the pilot for "The Unit," but early in his career, he helmed lighter fare including Fox's "Party of Five." SOURCE

Chow had eyelid job

Hong Kong - Actor Chow Yun Fat admitted in a TV interview in South Korea that he has had cosmetic surgery, reported Apple Daily yesterday.

The 54-year-old was quoted as saying: 'As I grew older, my eyelids began to droop. I began going for cosmetic surgery in Hong Kong when I was filming The God Of Gamblers in 1989.'

He was in Seoul, South Korea, to promote Dragonball: Evolution, the Hollywood adaptation of the popular Japanese manga. He plays Master Roshi in the film.

He seemed light-hearted throughout the interview and even joked with the host of the TV programme: 'If you go to Hong Kong for cosmetic surgery, I can introduce you to the doctor. He's cheap and good.'

Dragonball: Evolution opens in Singapore on March 12.


AnnaLynne McCord gets a free vibrator...and loves it

Boy it sure looks like AnnaLynne McCord is excited to be getting this package from the We-Vibe Style Lounge this weekend.

Hair product? A new PDA? Wait, upon closer inspection...well, it's a vibrator. Sometimes you wish you didn't have the ZoomIn technology.

Bruce Murison, the co-inventor of said We-Vibe says he recalls New Moon dropout McCord visiting his stall.

"I wish we had it on video so you could have seen them jumping up and down...and exclaiming 'I want one!' " he tells Celebuzz. Yup, the pictures certainly illustrate that story. The reaction, he insists, is "typical."

Bruce's wife and co-inventor Melody was on hand for the explanation to McCord and company on how the reportedly revolutionary, um, item works. We'll leave that part for the instruction manual. But you might not be surprised to know that Melody had a big hand in the design, which took several years and was done from their home in a small Canadian town. And that it was done in secret so that they wouldn't get dirty looks from the neighbors. Not even making that part up.

NYC Housewives' Alex: "My Husband Isn't Gay!"

Woot! Woot!

I'm happy to confirm that there’s plenty of catfighting on the new season of The Real Housewives of NYC. Not only did things kick off last week with Jill trashing Alex's husband, Simon, in Cindy Adams' New York Post column (she basically called him drunk), but Alex tells me things will get rough between her and Ramona.

“You can definitely expect fireworks with me and Ramona,” McCord says. “We’ve all been thrown together in this as a dysfunctional family. We all know each other better and when you know someone better, you also know their weak spots.”


I caught up with Alex the other day from her still-under-renovation Brooklyn home to talk season two, those infamous nudie pics and lingering questions about her husband's sexuality.

Rihanna & Chris Brown: Attacked popstar "can't be without" boyfriend

The pretty singer, who suffered a bruised face and split lip after Brown (19) apparently attacked her two weeks ago, is willing to give him a second chance.

And the RnB star has been doing everything he can to get back into Rihanna’s good books – the 'New York Daily News' reported that he bombarded her with expensive gifts for her recent 21st birthday, including a necklace and a diamond bracelet.
He also called her at her Hollywood home to wish her happy birthday.

His charm offensive seems to be working on the singer, who misses her boyfriend despite what happened.

A friend told the paper: “Rihanna so wanted Chris with her on her big day, but obviously realises why they can’t be together right now. But it’s becoming more and more clear that she can’t be without him.”

Rihanna has accused Brown of the attack and continues to help Los Angeles police with their investigation. Brown, who is set to to go to court over the alleged assault, released a recent statement saying was "sorry" about the incident.

Musicians who have suffered domestic abuse include Tina Turner, who was assaulted for years by husband Ike, while Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown famously fought for years.


Cheryl puts her foot down

CHERYL Cole has thrown fellow X Factor judge Dannii Minogue a lifeline — by threatening to quit if Simon Cowell gives her the boot.

Show boss Cowell had been seeking a replacement for the Aussie singer, 37, but Cheryl put a stop to his plan by refusing to sign her new contract until Dannii gets hers.

The Girls Aloud beauty was worried she might not like the new judge. Names in the frame included Lily Allen, who she once branded a "chick with a d***", Charlotte Church and Destiny’s Child superstar Kelly Rowland, who risked upstaging her.

A source said: "Cheryl told Simon straight — if it’s not her AND Dannii together, then he’s looking for TWO new stars. There’s no way he will let them both go."

Cheryl, 25, replaced Sharon Osbourne on the judging panel in last year’s series. The source added: "The show was a bigger success than ever, and Simon knows a lot of that is down to Cheryl."

The Geordie has told Cowell not to pull another "Kelly Brook", a reference to when he fired model Kelly after three days as a Britain’s Got Talent judge. The source said: "She feels they don’t need a format change."

It is The Sun so taking it with a pinch of salt. To be honest Britains Got Talent >>>> X Factor imho.
Also I seriously cannot believe Cheryl and I are the same age.

'Kidman Kisses Day-Lewis For Nine'

It’s a musical, this Nine. This film of many stars. Like (deep breath) Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Dame Judi Dench, Kate Hudson, Penélope Cruz, Sophia Loren and Marion Cotillard (exhale). It’s a musical based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the 80s, in which A middle-aged film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) is trying to complete his next film. His only problem is that he has too many women in his life: Luisa (Marion Cotillard), his wife, Carla (Penélope Cruz), his sexy mistress, and Claudia (Nicole Kidman), his muse and protege.

Got it?

Well spoilers be damned, he kisses his mistress on a set in Italy.

EXCLUSIVE: Megan Fox and Actor Brian Austin Green Call Off Engagement

Megan Fox and fiance Brian Austin Green have split, Usmagazine.com has learned.

"The relationship had run its course," an insider tells Us exclusively. "They both realized the time had come to go their separate ways. It's completely amicable, and they are remaining friends."

Fox, 22 (who’ll reprise her role as Mikaela in this June’s sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), and Green, 35 (a regular on Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), now “are both focusing on their careers," the source adds.

The couple -- who have tattoos of each other's names -- met in 2004 and, as Us first reported, got engaged in November 2006.

Last November, Fox told Us that the wedding plans were still on.

"It's not going to be a big wedding," she told Us at a GQ bash. "I'm not one of those girls. If it happens, it will be very low-key and quick and unplanned."

She said she and Green -- who has a 6-year-old son, Kassius, from a previous relationship -- haven't talked about wanting more kids.

"I feel like I need to set my career and do a movie other than Transformers," she said. "Then I’ll explore family."

Green laughed off split rumors last year.

"The last thing we do is get upset," he told Us. "We usually go have dinner and have a glass of wine and laugh about it."

Asked last July what he loves most about Fox, he told Us, "Everything is my favorite thing about her."

Lindsay's shocking demise


After pictures of 22-year-old Lindsay Lohan emerged of the actress looking rail thin, amid rumours of a series of bust-ups with Samantha Ronson, 31, pals of the Mean Girls star revealed that they have begun fearing for her life.

Caught on camera drinking alcohol - despite her admission in August 2007 that "It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs" - friends say Lindsay is taking drugs and self-harming as her career fails and her relationship grows more tempestuous.

Ahlan! stacks up the evidence that shows the star is in very serious trouble...


Spotted out partying almost every night - favouring travelling with Sam to her DJ gigs and sitting in the booth over staying out of the spotlight to repair her image - Lindsay has become a source of major worry for her close friends and family, after one insisted the actress is cutting herself, saying, "She has fresh scars on her wrists."

Skinny Obsession

Insiders say Lindsay's weight has dropped from 61 kilos to 43 kilos within the past few months, which, at 5ft 6 makes her seriously underweight according to her BMI.

"She looks horribly unhealthy," said a friend, who adds that LiLo's pals are blaming a ‘skinny pact' with Samantha Ronson for the rapid weight loss. "Lindsay is obsessed with her weight."

Vicious Fights With Sam

Neighbours were left shocked, just last weekend, when a huge row broke out at Samantha's Hollywood home between the DJ and Lindsay - with sources saying the warring pair resorted to throwing things at one another.

"The noise was pretty frightening. It was the two of them screeching at one another, and you could hear stuff being banged around too - it sounded like a lovers' quarrel, but a pretty bad one!" revealed one.

And onlookers at the recent ESPN Pre-Super Bowl party revealed, "Lindsay grabbed Sam's blackberry obsessively to check her messages before a row broke out." With a friend adding, "They're always breaking up. Samantha won't let Lindsay go, she doesn't have a career without her."

Her Career's In Meltdown

Almost pathologically jealous of Scarlett Johansson's stellar career - and in 2006, Lindsay scrawled ‘Scarlett is a bloody c***' on the bathroom wall of a New York club during a night out with Kate Moss - the Herbie: Reloaded star recently lamented, "I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don't get the opportunities that they get."

And after Lindsay's character was axed from recurring episodes of Ugly Betty amid rumours of rows with America Ferrera, the struggling actress last week suffered the humiliating blow of losing out to her Mean Girls co-star Amanda Seyfried for the lead role in A Woman Of No Importance - the ‘serious movie Linds had hoped to put her back on the map.

Will Lindsay's Family Intervene?

Desperate to split Sam and Lindsay up, the actress's estranged father, Michael revealed on his blog, "I received a text message from a dear friend of Lindsay's. The text said, ‘From what I hear, from Lindsay's nearest and dearest friends, Lindsay is worse off than ever since she has been with Sam.'"

And although Dina Lohan has stepped out of the spotlight and is now rarely pictured with her eldest daughter, insiders are adamant that behind the scenes, plans are being made to stage an intervention, forcing Lindsay back into rehab for the fourth time.

Lisa Wu Hartwell sues Keith Sweat for full custody

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” housewife Lisa Wu Hartwell last Thursday filed for primary custody of her two sons with ex-husband and R&B singer Keith Sweat.

“The best interest of the minor children will be served by modifying the current custody and visitation provisions to make Mother the primary physical condition of the minor children,” according to the court papers filed with the Superior Court of Fulton County. “Since the time of the Divorce Decree, Mother has remarried, owns a successful business and will provide a stable, loving, and nurturing environment in which she can raise the minor children.”

She is seeking “primary physical custody and joint legal custody with final decision-making on all issues regarding the minor children.” She will “reasonably engage Father in good faith discussions before any final decisions are made concerning the children?s welfare.” The two children are Jordan Sweat, age 14, and Justin Sweat, age 11.

If she does get custody, she requests child support as well.

In 2003, Sweat received primary custody of the children. According to the final divorce decree written by Fulton Superior Court judge Cynthia D. Wright, Sweat and Wu Hartwell married in 1992 and had the judge termed at the time an “extremely tumultuous relationship.” Wright wrote that “there is evidence that Father has been violent towards Mother, but no evidence he has ever been violent with any of his children.”

The judge felt the children at the time “lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother’s numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town … Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother’s maturity and judgment.”

Although Sweat, too, travels frequently, the decree said Sweat?s mom helped care for the children. “Father is capable of providing a stable, secure home environment for the boys where their care is not delegated to random third parties,” the judge wrote.

Wu Hartwell has had visitation rights and has said in past interviews she sees her sons frequently. Neither boy was shown on camera or even talked about on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” because Sweat would not give her legal permission to do so. Sweat is never mentioned by name on the show.

Wu Hartwell is currently married to former NFL player Ed Hartwell. They have a child, who we saw on the TV show, which began taping its second season Monday.

Carlos Scott, her publicist, said Wu Hartwell cannot speak on the subject while it’s in the court system. Wu Hartwell said nothing about the custody case on Saturday at her South Dekalb Mall appearance, though she did note that her ex-husband didn’t clear her sons to be on the show.

We are currently seeking comment from Sweat, who happens to be promoting his new Peachtree TV special airing this week reuniting the group Dru Hill. Sweat made no mention of the custody case Monday morning in an interview with Frank & Wanda on V-103.

Are Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens engaged?

From sugarslam:

According to the National Enquirer, teen super-couple Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are engaged! Zac is rumored to have proposed while the two were in Japan, promoting High School Musical 3. The National Enquirer says:

”Zac… proposed to Vanessa during a joint trip to Japan in late January, say sources. The two are planning a long engagement and will tie the knot in 2010.

"Zac hasn’t given Vanessa a ring yet, say sources - but he’s hoping the proposal will buy him some time with Vanessa’s super-strict mom, Gina, who didn’t approve of the sweethearts living together before they were married."

Well, I have no comments except 1) didn't they just buy separate houses (yes) and 2) they think her mom is super-strict? Hmm.

Besides they can't get married. Zac/Dustin Lance Black is totally my new OTP... it doesn't matter that I don't even think Zac is gay, they are too cute:

Rosario Dawson's punishment

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
“My mom licked me - - that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didn’t listen or if she wanted to get my attention, she’d lick the side of my face or under my armpit. My mom’s a six-foot-tall amazon and she’d say, ‘’You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,’’ and she’d lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. It’s not spanking, but it definitely works.”

Real Housewives‘ Gretchen Has Good & Bad Days Since Fiancé’s Death

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In the season finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County, viewers learned that Gretchen Rossi’s fiancé Jeff had lost his battle with cancer. Ahead of Tuesday’s reunion show, PEOPLE spoke with Rossi on the phone to find out how she’s doing now, what she thinks of the comments from Housewives Vicki and Tamra that she’s attention hungry and a stalker, if she’ll do another season of Housewives — and whether she’s riding that red hot Harley-Davidson.

How are you holding up?
Every day is a different emotion. I wake up and either I’m happy or I’m really sad so it really just depends on the day. It’s kind of like a moving river … there’s always something new that has come to the surface.

What’s your support system?
I have a really great family. They’ve been the ones that have been my main support system and I have a large group of friends that have really been there for me and have helped me through a lot of things as well. I’ve also had a lot of opportunities to distract myself from what went on and one of those things is a huge honor … The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as nominated me as one of the women of the year for 2009. It’s a fun competition between all of the candidates to see who can raise the most money. And I’m going to be starting a foundation in Jeff’s name. So that’s been something that’s really allowed me to keep Jeff’s memory alive.

EXCLUSIVE: Rosie O'Donnell: Madonna Is Helping Me Deal With Menopause

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rosie O'Donnell has been e-mailing back and forth with Madonna about menopause, she reveals in an interview on The Tyra Banks Show to air Thursday and Friday.

"She's [Madonna] great, she's a lot like a big sister," O'Donnell says. "When I started having my hormone things, I'm like, 'What the hell is going on?' she's like, 'Get the cream.'"

The former View host doesn't hold anything back when talking about her body.

"Well let me tell you one thing, Tyra: I am about to be 47 next month and Aunt Flow has not shown up for nine months," she says.

"It started for me at 41...I would be in the bed, and I would wake up and the sheets would be soaking wet -- not damp -- soaking wet," she shares. "I thought, 'Oh [daughter] Vivi crawled in here last night and maybe she wet.' So I would throw the covers off and turn to look -- and there's no Vivi, it's just [partner] Kelli. Then I'm like, 'Kelli is incontinent!' And then I realized, no it's me."

Other changes in O'Donnell's life? She's given up booze.

"I stopped drinking on Dec. 1. It has not been easy," she admits.

"On Nov. 29, I was with my son, who is now 13, and I said to him, 'Park, can you get me a beer?'" she says. "And he said, 'No I don't want to.' And I said, 'Really why not?' And he says, 'Because you know what, I think you drink too much beer...Lately I think it's too much.'

O'Donnell was once sober.

"I [told my son], 'You know, when I was a kid -- when I was 22 -- I stopped drinking for, like, eight years.' He goes, 'Well maybe you should do that again.' I go, 'Well honey what happens if I can't do that?'

Parker suggests his adopted mom join Alcoholics Anonymous.

"He said, 'There's a drunk club. I forget what it's called, but you have to, like, be really drunk to get in. I don't know if they'd let you in, but you could ask them for tips,'" O'Donnell says.

Ting Tings no longer feel normal

The Ting Tings say they have "forgotten how to be normal" since becoming pop stars.

The duo - Katie White and Jules DeMartino - admit their sudden success and recent world tour have left them so shocked and confused, they are struggling to deal with everyday life.

Jules said: "I think we've forgotten how to be normal.

"We do so much work - we do the music, the artwork and everything, and then touring on top of that. It's too much. You end up sleeping four hours a night."

The 'That's Not My Name' hitmakers - who performed with Estelle at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday (18.02.09) - are also surprised at how much their fan base has changed over the last year.

Katie said: "We're getting toddlers at our shows now. We used to get arty types, then normal mainstream people. Now it's toddlers."

Jules added: "It used to be real indie-types, but now it's a wider demographic. We came out of a concert in New York and this Hells Angel comes up to the bus and goes, 'Ting Tings? You guys f***ing rock'."

Randy Jackson, Flo Rida on Domestic Disturbia 09

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Like many Hollywood figures, Randy Jackson is putting in his two cents on what went down between Rihanna and Chris Brown.

"Once again, it's really, really unfortunate. I saw them together at Clive's [Davis] party on the night of the incident and just two very young talented people. Hate to see it go down that way," the music maven told BlackVoices.com.

The Grammy winning producer finds it hard to fathom the scrutiny young artists face today. "Every move is documented and the pressures for a young kid, being in this today. Man, I can't even imagine."

But the American Idol judge points out that even though there is pressure on burgeoning talent it's no justification for Chris Brown's actions. "I think everyone that really knows them and everyone who is a fan of theirs is just saddened by it. You hate to see it happen to them and you know they're really young and dealing with a lot but there's no excuse for bad behavior of any kind."

WATCHMEN World Premiere Report

There have been two posts with pics but this is the video report from Empire

Like a happy hardcore hall of heroes - with its bright yellow, smiley face emblazoned carpet, and specially commissioned spray paint mural still in progress - the Watchmen world premiere was a trippy affair. With the entire cast in attendance and a rather less dressy audience than for your average red carpet event, we saw exactly what was under the hoods of our masked avengers.

JD Fortune LYING?

An unfortunate twist of events for J.D. Fortune.

INXS has said they didn't fire the former lead singer. But now, more of Fortune's allegations are being exposed.

The Canadian singer has accused the band of firing him in Hong Kong and has now claimed to be homeless.

But on the band's official website, Kirk Pengilly has documented the band's expeditions in an online journal since 2003.

From September 2007 to October 2007, the journal documents the band's tour, including their infamous stop to Hong Kong.

On September 20th, Pengilly writes that he went to a bar with Fortune to celebrate the former lead singer's two-year anniversary with the band while the other members flew home to be with their families. Jon Farriss, the band's drummer, is said to have stayed with Fortune in Hong Kong to show him around. When Farriss flew home, Pengilly writes about Fortune staying in Hong Kong until September 27th.

According to the timeline, things aren't adding up for Fortune. But either way, it looks to be pretty good timing for the upcoming release of the singer's debut solo album, Death of a Motivational Speaker.

'Real Housewives' give rich husband tips

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Finding a man is easy, but finding a rich man takes serious calculating.

Luckily, the Real Housewives of New York City are happy to offer real tips on how to land a man with a fat bank account.

“If you want to find a rich husband, go sit in a private airplane terminal,” Jill Zarin tells me. “Anyone coming off a private airplane is probably doing all right.”

She adds, “The Waldorf-Astoria shoots a Fox News show at 5:00 every day, at the Bull and Bear. All these really successful financial experts come in and it’s a live show. So, if you’re in the area of the Waldorf, go to the bar there between 5 and 6, and you never know who you might meet.”

While Jill gives real advice, Ramona Singer cautions “you can’t marry for love” if your primary goal is to marry rich.

She says, “You don’t land a rich husband. You find somebody you really love and adore, and if you support him, he’ll become rich.”


Adnan Ghalib charged with 3 felonies

Adnan Ghalib -- the papper/ex-BF of Britney Spears -- has been charged with three felonies for allegedly smashing his car into a process server earlier this month.

The L.A. County District Attorney has charged Adnan with assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and hit and run -- all felonies.

Ghalib allegedly hit a man with his car in an alley back on February 11. The man was reportedly trying to serve Adnan with legal papers on behalf of Britney Spears.

One law enforcement source says Ghalib allegedly hit the dude, who landed on the hood, and then continued driving.

The server jumped on the hood of Ghalib's Mercedes to avoid being pinned against a trash truck.

Cops and paramedics were called. The victim broke his wrist and suffered cuts and bruises.

Prosecutors are asking for bail set at $110,000. If convicted, Ghalib could get seven years in prison.

American Idol Wild Card Round Explanation Finally!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Anoop Desai May Already Be in the Wild Card Round

There seems to be a bit of anticipation brewing already for the American Idol Wild Card Round, which will be broadcast in three weeks. A new addition to the No. 1 rated show in the U. S., the Wild Card Round will also showcase 12 contestants attempting to make it into the Final 12. Three from the Wild Card Round will be chosen and continue onward with the nine Final 12 contenders that will have already been chosen by American Idol viewers (and voters) in previous Rounds 1, 2, and 3.

The Wild Card Round will be structured a bit differently from the other three elimination rounds as well. After the three contenders from Rounds 1 - 3 get their automatic berths, nine others must be chosen to complete the Wild Card 12 that will literally be given a second chance to become the next American Idol. The judges will do the choosing for those nine slots. American Idol viewers will just have to sit back and enjoy the show as the 12 nearly-made-its get one more chance, because the judges will choose finalists 10, 11, and 12 as well.

How Obama's Speech Affects TV Tonight

President Obama delivers his first major address to Congress and the nation today at 9 pm/ET (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC).

The fortunate few who don't need to worry about the economy can watch, appropriately enough, the CW's Privileged season finale. The network is the only one that won't play Obama's speech.

CBS and ABC plan to return to their regularly scheduled programming at 10:30 pm/ET. NBC, more faithful in the president's economy with words, plans to air Law & Order: Special Victims Unit at 10 pm/ET.

Fox's American Idol will air Wednesday and Thursday this week instead of Tuesday and Wednesday. NBC will air the second half of its two-hour Biggest Loser: Couples on Wednesday,in place of "Knight Rider.". SOURCE

Kate Winslet: Daughter "Mortified" She Wore a Gray Dress to the Oscars

Oscar winner Kate Winslet already made one worst dressed list - her daughter's!

After being named best actress on Sunday, she phoned her children backstage. Her 8-year-old daughter, Mia, couldn't get over Winslet's Yves St. Laurent asymmetric evening gown.

"I said, 'Hi, Mia, did you jump up and down?'" she said on The Oprah Winfrey Show Monday. "[Mia] says: 'Yes, I did, Mum, I did. I need to talk to you about the dress it was gray.' She was absolutely mortified I wore a gray dress."

Winslet told Winfrey she didn't want a lot of dresses being sent to her.

"I think in this time in the economy, it's just not nice to have people make lots of dresses and you just wear one out of a possible five," she said. "So Yves St. Laurent very kindly said, 'We'd like to make something for you,' and that was what we did."

Getting on stage to accept her Oscar was "an out-of-body experience."

Added the actress, "You just think, 'This can't be happening.'"

Now she can't stop staring her her statue.

"Isn't he cute?" she asked Winfrey as she held her Oscar. "I keep sort of looking at him and looking at every little piece. Very nice bottom."

Winslet said you won't be seeing that much of her on the big screen from now on.

"I have done quite a lot of nudity, and I feel like my kids they're 8 and 5 now maybe they're going to start to become aware of the amount of nudity I've done," she says. "I just sort of feel like I can't get away with it that much longer."

Another flick for CILLIAN MURPHY

I love Feist...and "The Water" is an amazing song....
In addition to finishing three films and beginning a fourth....Cillian still had time to pencil in another little jem.
Waiting for film festivals is this short film:



Midway into Feist’s 2007 breakthrough album The Reminder is a bewitching ballad called “The Water.”

The track moves slowly, as if water itself, and its emotional resonance inspired Broken Social Scene co-founder Kevin Drew to adapt the tune into a short film—or visual poem, as he likes to think of it.
“The song has so much real, honest and raw age to it,” Drew says. “It sounds like an old classic song.”
Wanting the film to relate the song’s essence and not its actual lyrics, Drew took the idea of a loved one coming back to life and tied it to sparse dialogue and shots of concentrated facial expressions. The film’s pace is excruciatingly slow, and intentionally so. “I wanted the film to match the patience within the recording,” he says. “If you listen carefully you can hear all the details of chairs and pianos clicking around and the musicians breathing … it has such a strong emotion to it.”

After recruiting actors David Fox and Cillian Murphy, Drew rounded out the cast with the songbird herself. Feist plays a sort of love interest—the sort that gets dragged through the snowy forest in a mummy wrap, then thawed out by a fire. “Kevi,” as Feist calls Drew, “told me one day that he wanted to make a film for ‘The Water,’ and he knew he needed Cillian’s blue eyes and David’s brown ones and that it was going to be a fairytale,” Feist says. “It felt like a cross between a book I read as a kid called The Snow Queen, a silent film and a long walk in the woods with snow crunching under your feet.”

The short, which was shot in two days in Toronto last January, is awaiting submission into festivals. Perhaps cinephiles on the festival circuit will be able to decipher the enigmatic plot. “There was nothing shocking or any original twist within it,” Drew says. “It was following the core but I really love how it’s up for interpretation for the viewer. I’m one of those people who makes things and figures it out afterwards.”

The Rock Star Stimulus Plan

SPIN's Ellen Carpenter tells the President how to spend some of that $787 billion, as he prepares to address Congress tonight.

Given all the new beneficiaries of President Obama's economic stimulus package -- first-time home-buyers, small business owners, unemployed bloggers -- the American rock music industry seems to have been cruelly overlooked. For just a fraction of that $787 billion, many singers and rappers at risk could be pulled from the brink of ruin. Here are some targets for the Obama/SPIN.com stimulus spending plan:

Those of you who thought LeWar was going to be a cakewalk were in for a letdown today. New fronts opened in England, Finland, and in the Irish town of Shaquille O’Neal.

'Green Lantern', 'Sherlock', 'Potter Finale' Nab Release Dates

Warner Brothers has made an interesting move with regards to The Green Lantern (which Casino Royale's Martin Campbell is rumored to be directing) as they've announced a December 17, 2010 release date for the superhero flick. No, this isn't the Green Hornet (which we wrote about earlier telling you of Michel Gondry's involvement) -- this is the other green hero, Green Lantern. It'll be interesting to see how well a superhero movie does during the winter months [cough] Spirit [cough], and while this one is kinda flying under the radar, I'm a fan of Green Lantern and I'm real curious to see what they do with it.

In other Warner Bros. release date news, they seem to have pushed Sherlock Holmes (starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law) to a December 25, 2009 release -- making this the studio's big Christmas Day movie. The film was previously supposed to open on November 13. Additionally, the final Harry Potter film (part 2 of the Deathly Hallows)has scheduled a release date of July 15, 2011. And guess what else is opening that weekend -- um, just a little flick called The Avengers. Could you imagine Potter squaring off against Marvel's Avengers? How cool would that box office battle be?

spiderman is DEF coming to broadway

It is now official, SPIDER-MAN, Turn Off the Dark, will open on Thursday, February 18, 2010 at Broadway's Hilton Theatre, 213 West 42nd Street (preview performances will begin Saturday, January 16, 2010).

Directed by Tony Award-winner Julie Taymor with 22-time Grammy® Award-winning Bono and The Edge creating new music and lyrics, SPIDER-MAN will be written by Julie Taymor and Glen Berger.

Drawing from over forty years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, SPIDER-MAN spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. The musical follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down-literally-when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek-suddenly endowed with astonishing powers-soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character. Spider-Man's battles will hurtle the audience through an origin story both recognizable and unexpected--yielding new characters as well as familiar faces--until a final surprising confrontation casts a startling new light on this hero's journey.


Oh. Joy.

McDonough is more than willing to dish on his TV wife's departure from Wisteria Lane.

Chad Murray AND Hilarie Burton not returning to OTH Season 7

OTHfans.com had the EXCLUSIVE news that Chad would not be renewing his contract (see Season 7 without Chad?!) and with today's official announcement that there will be a 7th season, comes more news from our sources.

Once again, the source continues to confirm that Chad did NOT renew his contract. My source also confirmed that Hilarie Burton did not renew her contract. Both say that for personal and career reasons they have decided not to renew their contracts.

For a "spoiler" version of this story... please click here! Warning... it is VERY spoilerish regarding Lucas and Peyton.

I am sure the network and the producers will try to deny this information as they did before. However we stand by what we report here as accurate and we trust in our source 100%. We have NEVER in 6 years of this website reported false information from the set. This website is here to PROMOTE the show and I strongly feel that starting/spreading rumors is not a form of promoting. If I was not confident in my sources information 100%, I would NOT post it.

I know there are so many Lucas/Peyton haters so this should come as good news, but I'm actually kinda sad! The show isn't going to be the same without them, that's for sure.

Stephenie Meyer is in Vogue

How did a suburban mother of three become the next big thing in publishing with her chaste-but-erotic Twilight series? Robert Sullivan meets Stephenie Meyer.

Photographed by Jonathan Becker.

She may prefer to write late at night while her family sleeps, but for the record, there is not a lot about Stephenie Meyer, author of the better-than-best-selling Twilight series, that screams vampire. Yes, she has long dark hair and earthy brown eyes, casually highlighted this afternoon at her home in Arizona by a black Banana Republic cashmere sweater and jeans, but she lacks the arrogance associated with vampireness. Her vibe is homey; she sits you down on her living-room couch, one leg curled up under her, and starts talking as if you had been in the midst of conversation for years. She's surrounded by her sons' toys, games, and compasses (her husband is a Cubmaster), as well as her work—her office is in the front hall. There are family photos and a few paintings of the Washington coast, where Twilight takes place. The Phoenix neighborhood where she lives, a kind of desert suburb, is the opposite of the Washington coast, and lately she and her husband have been taking their three boys (ages six, eight, and eleven) on vacation to the Seattle area once in a while, to see green. "It's nice to show them that there are places where things are alive," she says.

Robert Smith Says Mean Things About Radiohead

When we last left Cure frontman Robert Smith he was bitching about iTunes UK overcharging for his band's 2008 EP, Hypnagogic States. And now he's bitching about Radiohead not charging enough for their 2007 album In Rainbows. Maybe all that hair product is taking its toll somehow.

In a recent interview with Music Radar, the pancake makeup aficionado said he "disagreed violently" with Radiohead's pay what you want scheme: "You can't allow other people to put a price on what you do, otherwise you don't consider what you do to have any value at all and that's nonsense. If I put a value on my music and no one's prepared to pay that, then more fool me, but the idea that the value is created by the consumer is an idiot plan, it can't work."

While Smith's point is hardly ridiculous, it's tough not to imagine hefty dollops of bitterness and jealously going along with those harsh words-- especially since a relative few noticed the release of the Cure's 4:13 Dream last year. The barb reminds me of Coachella 2004, when Radiohead and the Cure headlined on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. When Radiohead hit the stage, everyone stayed and crammed. When the Cure hit the stage the next day, many stayed...but many took the chance to leave early, too. (A similar situation could play out this year when the Cure close Coachella after My Bloody Valentine and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Sunday.)

aww, Robert how can you hate this:

How well did Law & Order: UK do last night?

'Law & Order: UK' begins run with 6.4m
By Dan French

ITV1's new crime drama Law & Order: UK made a reasonable start last night, overnight ratings figures suggest.

The series - an adaptation of the long-running US show starring Bradley Walsh - drew a strong 6.37m (26.3%) in the 9pm slot. The audience was down on the impressive 7.55m (30%) for Whitechapel in the same slot last Monday, however.

Law & Order's closest rival was BBC One's Who Do You Think You Are? with 5.65m (23.3%) in the hour.

From next week there are repeats at 22.35 on Wednesdays.

Sam Riley interview + next project!

After making his name playing Ian Curtis in the critically-acclaimed Control, Yorkshire actor Sam Riley talks to Kate Whiting.
Sam Riley is taking a well-earned break.

While the rest of us were left shivering in the recent cold snap, the actor has been soaking up the sun in Dubai.

"I don't want to rub it in but yes, it is nice, I've just been on the water slides," says the 29-year-old, originally from Menston, near Leeds.

"My girl's doing a job here and I've just finished working, so I'm relaxing while she's working hard earning the money."

He's just finished shooting a film with Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham and Ray Winstone in New York, where he insists, it "was minus 14C last week" and he's still reeling from the success of his debut film Control.

Collapse )
And though IMDB is the only source for this, it seems that Sam will be starring in a remake of the novel On The Road by Jack Kerouac, directed by Walter Salles. I'm assuming he will play Sal, and another rumoured castmate is Garrett Hedlund as Dean.. but nothing has been confirmed. Very excited if it goes through though!


For all those in the UK, Franklyn (w/ Sam, Eva Green & Ryan Phillipe) will be in theatres this Friday! SHOW THIS BOY SOME WELL DESERVED LOVE BY SEEING THE MOVIE PLZ AND TY. It looks promising.

All Eyes Are On Zack Snyder (and Malin Akerman's Bra)

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — For a guy being grilled about cartoon squids and superhero genitalia, Zack Snyder is looking pretty comfortable.

And why wouldn't he? Snyder is in his element: chatting about comic books at a computer store, surrounded by laptops and geeks.

The 42-year-old director is making the case for his March 6 film, Watchmen, before a standing-room-only crowd of fanboys at an Apple store. He has slides, videos and a few secrets to spill to help sell his adaptation of a graphic novel once considered too dark, violent and sprawling to become Hollywood hay.

Coming from any other director, the pitch might seem desperate, particularly in front of a group of devotees who love to test — and deride — a filmmaker's knowledge of the illustrated arts.

But after the unexpected success of his last film, 300, another graphic-novel adaptation, Snyder has become something of a nerd king, an auteur for comic-book fans who consider him one of three directors (along with Sam Raimi and Christopher Nolan) who can be trusted with their beloved material.

Privately, though, Snyder knows such standing is tenuous. He's aware of how skeptical even his faithful are about a movie version of one of the most revered graphic novels ever.

(no subject)

In Touch has an article this week that compares country star and former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler’s very surprised appearance to her cute normal look in the past. I couldn’t find the exact comparison pictures they use, but these are pretty close and you can see how clownish she looks now. You could guess that in the second picture Kellie is just lifting her forehead up, but In Touch has a photos from another series in which she looks even worse.

They quote a plastic surgeon as saying she’s had botox and lip filler while Kellie’s rep denies she’s had “facial sugery”:

" According to cosmetic surgeon Dr. Peter Gelder… (who doesn’t treat the star), Kellie, 22, may have gotten Botox around her eyebrows as well as her lips plumped. “Her expression looks very unnatural and exaggerated,” says Dr. Geldner. “And her lips were very likely plumped with a filler. We see a lot more of her lower lip now.”

Kellie’s rep denies that she’s had work - “She has not had any facial surgery of any kind,” he says - and Kellie tells In Touch that she doesn’t worry about what people say about her: “As long as you’re happy with what you see in the mirror, that’s all that matters.”

stalker sam = "very dangerous"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In a rare open-court hearing this afternoon, Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears testified against her former constant companion, Sam Lutfi, whom he labeled as a "predator" and "very dangerous."

The testimony from Papa Spears was part of a hearing to determine whether or not restraining orders against Lutfi and Brit's ex-boyfriend, photographer Adnan Ghalib, should be extended. The actual hearing isn't until Wednesday, but Jamie testified today because he will be out of town.

In his testimony, Brit's dad recalled how he discovered how he believes that Sam, who has been forbidden from contacting the pop star for almost a year, was keeping in touch with her.

According to Jamie, Britney's nanny discovered the singer talking on a cell phone in her room during the wee hours of the night. Problem is — Brit-Brit is not allowed to have a cell phone. She must use either her father's phone or the house phone.

So when his daughter was away from the house one day, he had her head of security go through Britney's purse, where he discovered a prepaid Nokia cell phone. He then confronted her with discovery and she explained that someone had given it to her while she was at the Peninsula Hotel. Per Jamie's testimony, the person handed it to Brit and said, "This is from Sam and Adnan. Take the phone."

Perusing the numbers on the phone, Jamie saw several calls to people he believed to be Sam — using the code name "CityGalN310" — and Adnan, who supposedly used the code name "Ruba."

On Jan. 10, Sam, using the CityGalN310 name, allegedly sent several texts to Jamie before ultimately calling him on the phone.

"Sam wanted to know if her could help me in any way," Jamie told the court. "He began to cry and fall apart. His mother and family is very upset because I had given him a bad name."

About the texts, Jamie testified, "They were very disturbing. They felt like a threat... like someone was trying to extort my daughter."

And Brit's dad wasn't done with the harsh talk, as he then described Lutfi as a "predator... He's very dangerous to my daughter, controling. He causes her a lot of anguish and disbelief in her mind and that she's lost without him."

While Adnan was neither present at the hearing, nor did he send legal representation, Sam's lawyer Brian Freedman maintained that his client is not a threat, that there's no evidence at this point that CityGal is indeed Sam or that his client had even called Britney in the first place.

During a break in the hearing, Freedman told OK! that restraining orders were "created for stalkers, but there isn't anything in Jamie's testimony or in the court papers that prove Sam and Britney even had one actual confirmed phone conversation. It's hard to prove 'harrassment' if you can't prove they've even talked once in 11 months."


Britney Spears cut in half: only on The Circus Tour.



Sort of like a wayward career, Britney Spears is going to disappear into thin air—and then magically reappear, to her fans' ecstatic delight.

"Right away, she got into the boxes and into the magic contraptions to learn the stuff, and she's so excited about this tour and all the elements that are in it," illusionist-comedian Ed Alonzo, "the Misfit of Magic" (and former Saved by the Bell diner owner) who will be doing a number with Spears on her Circus tour, tells E! News.

The pop star will serve as Alonzo's assistant in the bit.

"We're going to be doing the classics of magic but a little high-tech," he said. "We'll be doing a little dissection, transposition, a vanish, an appearance—and if I do a trick, she doesn't just hold the props, she's actually getting inside the big boxes or I am slicing her up."

Sounds a bit risky, which is perhaps why Team Spears decided to leave the tricks to a professional.

I "made [the tricks] really easy for her...but there are some complicated things that she is doing that you would think a contortionist would have to do, or a trained magician's assistant," Alonzo said. "But because...she's a dancer, it really makes sense to put her in the magic, and it works and she's really, really good at it."

"Some of it's pretty scary, but she gets right in there with no reservations," he added.

Alonzo wouldn't divulge which Spears tunes would be accompanying his mini magic show, but—news flash—he did assure us that the overall show will feature "the best music of Britney that people have loved over the years and, of course, brand-new favorites from the new album."

And, like us, Alonzo has only seen Spears in warm-up clothes and sneakers during rehearsals, although she has been testing out different pairs of heels here and there.

The three-ring circus-inspired set is "exactly what you would see in a big giant Vegas production show, but it's going to be on the road," he said, and anywhere from 75 to 100 crew members and performers are usually around at any given time.

"It's going to be an amazing concert for people to watch," he said. "It's like watching a big Cirque du Soleil high-tech circus, but with a really focused star in the middle of all of this."




Nineties rock group Faith No More, led by singer Mike Patton, are reforming for a European tour later this year, it has been confirmed.

NME.com reported the band's publicist confirmed reports saying the band will play summer festival tour dates later this year throughout Europe.

The band, whose 1989 single Epic caused controversy for featuring a fish flopping around on the floor, split in 1998.

The reunion will reportedly not include guitarist Jim Martin, who left Faith No More in 1993.

I WOULD KILL EVERY ONE OF YOU (with love) IN ORDER TO SEE THESE GUYS PLAY. Also, I am so starting up a "Faith No More Please Tour New Zealand" petition - it worked for The Cure, theres no harm in trying.

EDIT: Or alternatively I would kill all y'all for a hoon on Mike Pattons genitals. :D

Robert Pattinson and Rihanna: With a Mix of Natalie Portman & Miley Cyrus

From Chris Brown to Robert Pattinson, is that the next move for Rihanna? The love life of Robert Pattinson usually carries a mix of Kristen Stewart and sometimes Camilla Belle is tossed into the conversation. But with his Sunday night visit to the Kodak, it appears we are set to move Rob Pattinson in to save Rihanna. Really? My Park Mag has a poll of possible gals for Robert and Rihanna and Miley Cyrus actually make the list! Isn't Miley Cyrus sixteen years old? That one seems out.

More love speculation checks in from Ted Casablanca of E! Online and he has an item that claims pint sized hottie Natalie Portman was taking a serious long look at the heartthrob as he flew solo on the red carpet.

So what about the usual Kristen speculation? E! online adds even more to the Pattinson love life chart and they seem certain that he will not be hooking up with Kristen anytime soon, reiterating that she is solid with her boyfriend and they point to a Nylon Mag article where kristen says that she and Rob are very tight, but only as friends.

She even explains that if you think you see something between the two as they travel to promote their films, they lean on each other for support in the wild press situations.

His fans would love it if he could help the Umbrella singer get through this difficult time.

Rumour has it that Paris Hilton has her eye on the Twilight hunk so fans are urging him to find a girlfriend quick.

In a MyParkmag poll 54% of fans believe he should date Rihanna.

23% think Miley Cyrus would be his perfect girl and 15% think Vanessa Hudgens deserves to be Mrs Pattinson.

Who do you think Rob should date?

Michael Lohan: I'll Talk To Lindsay About Her Weight

Lindsay Lohan's dad, Michael Lohan, says he is concerned about his daughter's recent weight loss, and says he will talk to her about it.

"Lindsay goes through her fluctations in weight for different roles she's in, and traveling and what she's eating and taking care of herself," Michael Lohan told the Good Day Philadelphia show this morning."

He added, "I'll talk to her about it. I'll see what's going on."

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, LiLo says that if she's dropped a few pounds recently, it's only because of stress and her busy lifestyle.

Michael also admitted to Good Day Philadelphia that he's not in touch with Lindsay as often as he'd like because of the bad relationship he has with her DJ girlfriend, Samantha Ronson.

"[Our relationship] has been a little strained because of her relationship with Samantha," said Michael, "but we do communicate."

Bambi demands justice for bears

Jamie Bamber Demands Justice for Bears!

Jamie Bamber has long been a firm favourite on the sci-fi scene, with his ever-exciting role as Lee "Apollo" Adama in Battlestar Galactica. And now he's wooing UK audiences as DS Matt Devlin in the new ITV1 drama Law and Order. There's nothing quite like fighting for justice and helping those in need – and always look really good doing it, of course!

It didn't surprise us one bit that Jamie is like that in real life too. That's why he bared his skin in PETA's newest ad to help save black bears killed for their fur. When Jamie learned how Canadian black bears are killed to make the Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps, the British-born actor jumped at the chance to help. "I initially decided to do the PETA ad because a great friend of mine in L.A., Lucy Davis, had just done a similar ad, and I love Lucy and it was a cause I didn't know about – I'll be honest. So as soon as Lucy opened my eyes, I was thrilled to join her and do my bit."
