Once upon a time, many years ago, Late Night was not hosted by Conan O'Brien. A shock to many of you, I'm sure. No, it was hosted by David Letterman, yes the one now on CBS. Letterman, having been denied the Tonight Show, left Late Night for CBS. This left an open slot which a strange skinny red headed fellow would fill and transform into his own success story.

Not too many years ago, that skinny fellow was offered a chance to fulfill his dream of hosting The Tonight Show, with an even more elaborate history than Late Night. In his spot, a nervous SNL alum shall host.

Each one of these characters have had in their possession during their reign a certain object. An object of undeniable glory, might, and honor. As each new host takes over, the object has been passed down. They pass down, not a torch, but something even more meaningful.

Women's Professional Soccer Kits are Fierce!!!

NEW YORK, NY (February 24, 2009) – Global sportlifestyle brand PUMA® and the stars of Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS), including three-time FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year, Marta, number one WPS draft pick and Olympic Gold Medalist, Amy Rodriguez, and US National Team midfielder and Women’s World Cup bronze medalist, Leslie Osborne, unveiled the home and away uniforms in New York today at a high-profile fashion presentation. 

TV personality and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Summer Sanders hosted the event, while fashion designer and winner of TV’s Project Runway Season 4, Christian Siriano added to the excitement by designing his own fashion interpretation of a home and away uniforms inspired by the colors and materials from of the league’s uniforms.  The WPS uniforms will be put to the test in the WPS Inaugural Match on March 29th in Los Angeles, California when the Los Angeles Sol takes on the Washington Freedom.

The two design creations were showcased as part of the WPS Uniform unveiling, reinforcing PUMA’s fusion of both sport and lifestyle.  After the event, PUMA will work with WPS to highlight Siriano’s custom-designed outfits throughout the season and eventually auction his pieces later in the year, with proceeds going to a charity befitting of WPS, PUMA and Siriano.

“This is the first time I’ve ever designed for athletes – it’s perfect because I always design for strong women in my Ready to Wear collections and professional athletes definitely have to be tough in mind, body and spirit,” said fashion designer Christian Siriano.  “These soccer players are amazing and I love it!”

Gold Pride midfielder Christina DiMartino calls the new digs “fashion forward.” Her teammate Leslie Osborne agrees. Osborne isn’t sure if she will wear the skort all the time, but says it’s “a little extra.” Like jewelry to an outfit.
There is some opposition to the new uniforms. Asked whether she would be going skort or shorts come game day, Jersey Sky Blue forward Natasha Kai let it be known wear the new uniform ‘craze’ turns into just plain crazy. She took one look at the skort and with a slight sneer proclaimed “shorts!”
Boston Breaker Amy Rodriguez stated that she thinks “they add a little bit of flare.” PUMA did a really great job of designing these. I kind of like the skirt. I think it looks cute.”
Angela Hucles concurs. “The cute little skirt is growing on me. I think I’m going to do both.” Hucles wants to start her own trend – or at least slightly alter an old one. “I’m going to wear the skirt, and then I’m going to rip it off. From now on it’s the Angela Hucles. It’s no longer the Brandi Chastain.”
Players stated the option of going skort or shorts was their own game time decision.

Feel the wrath, Australia

" Alright, alright... John, clearly the world's biggest Girls Aloud fan, contacted me last week about putting up this video, but with all the pre/post Radelaide excitement, who had the time to investigate it properly? Not me! But he's a persevering bastard and reminded me yet again in this post, so what the hell - let's "go there".

You're all very aware of my feelings about Girls Aloud, yeah? They could probably be quite aptly summarised with the words "OMG WTF AWESOME, POP WIN". John and friends have launched a campaign to get Universal Music to treat the gals a little better Down Under... you know, actually release their latest acclaimed album in Australia at the very least. And I agree with the cause, I do, although I suspect the idiots at commercial radio won't comprehend the Girls Aloud greatness like we do, and we'll instead be subjected to 50 spins a day of the Hinder follow up instead of Can't Speak French.

formerly androgynous looking child rapper comments on domestic disturbia

“I mean, being in the business, the first thing is ‘ah, it’s false, another rumor, bloggers just wanting to have traffic to their site,’” Bow Wow [said]. “But when the story was unfolding, it was kind of shocking to all. Chris is a good friend of mine. We’ve had the opportunity to tour together. And then Rihanna, she’s just a beautiful person. Period. Never done no wrong to nobody.”

Bow Wow continues, “At the end of the day I’ve always believed in whatever happens with people’s business…my mom always told me don’t get into. And the situation is so major I think they just need their space and I think they need to deal with it.”
The rapper says the media needs to back off the estranged couple because it’s making it harder for them both. “I’ve been in a high profile relationship before and I know how it feels when everybody’s in your business. It just puts more pressure. And the only way they’re going to get over the situation is just to let them deal with it. And that’s what I really want to do. I’m praying for them both.”

Bow Wow, who says he hasn’t spoken to either Chris or Rihanna, says he couldn’t believe the horrifying picture that leaked on the internet last week, showing the singer with cuts and bloodied bruises on her face. “Just shocking,” he [said] “I mean we heard what happened but we really didn’t get a visual for it. But I mean hey, man. The picture speaks for itself."

LAPD is still really pissed about the Rihanna photo leak

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Los Angeles Police Department is still trying to plug its leak.

The internal investigation launched last week into who provided TMZ.com with a photo of Rihanna that was taken after she was allegedly assaulted by Chris Brown is still underway, E! News confirmed Tuesday.

"They said they were looking into it vigorously," LAPD spokesman Lt. John Romero said, referring to a statement made by an Internal Affairs commander at a meeting earlier in the day.

"We are not talking about the protocols because it will relate to this investigation," he said, unwilling to divulge further details about investigative procedure.

A law-enforcement source tells E! News that police have identified the computer they believe to be the one from which the photo originated, although they have not figured out who transferred the image.

Per protocol, the LAPD has not formally identified Rihanna as the victim of what transpired between her and Brown on the morning of Feb. 8. In announcing the investigation into the leak, authorities would only say that the photo appeared to have been taken "during an official domestic violence investigation."

"A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination," police said.

Meanwhile, the investigation into Brown's conduct continues, as well. Law-enforcement sources have told E! News that prosecutors are looking for evidence to build a felony case against the R&B star.

After being booked on suspicion of making criminal threats on Feb. 8, Brown made his way to Virginia to be with his family. Rihanna was treated overnight at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and then traveled to her native Barbados.

She left the Caribbean island sometime last week, and her current location is unknown.

My Chemical Romance solicit Red Bull can donations

And Gerard Way ponders the meaning of life in his Lucky Charms

MCR1-Cute ^^ Pictures, Images and Photos

My Chemical Romance are seeking donations of Red Bull cans for a "Red Bull wall" drummer Bob Bryar hopes to complete by the time the band finish recording their new record.

In a posting on the My Chemical Romance today (February 24), Bryar added on his blog, "now that i think about it more just send whatever. an old suitcase, or a remote that you dont know what its for, or a shoe, etc."

The drummer gave fans the address of a representative at the Warner Bros record label, who may soon be receiving a lot of junk mail.

In addition, frontman Gerard Way suggested that a "Turkish lucky charm" as well as a monkey's paw be added as marshmallow shapes for the popular Lucky Charms breakfast cereal. "They could easily be adapted to marshmallow form. Can't you picture it?" he wrote. "I think a Monkey's Paw would make an excellent addition to Lucky Charms as it is in fact, a lucky charm from days of yore. Most likely illegal now."

The singer concluded by pondering the question: "Can you count your age by the marshmallows in a bowl of Lucky Charms? Like the rings of a great oak tree? I remember, as a child, the addition of Purple Horseshoes and eventually Red Balloons. I now notice there are Yellow Hourglasses. How many new magical totems of sugar will be in the bowl when I reach the age of 65?"

Opting for some retail therapy to chase away the stress of a long workday, Lauren Conrad and Lauren 'Lo' Bosworth were spotted hitting up a few shops in Beverly Hills yesterday (February 24). The "Hills" hotties looked stylish as they perused the racks at swanky boutiques like Chanel and Neiman Marcus as the paps fired away.

Earlier in the day, Miss Conrad met up with ex-roomie/co-star Audrina Patridge to film footage for an upcoming episode of their hit MTV reality show at Crustacean Euro Asian Cuisine.

Exclusive Interview With Dr. Drew Pinsky

To begin, I asked Dr. Drew to give me the gist of his MTV program “Sex…with Mom and Dad.” He explained that the show focuses on teenagers and young people who are “…acting out” sexually and lack “…emotional contact with their parents,” thus leaving both the parents and the kids in denial about the situation. I used this as an opportunity to ask Dr. Drew about having the dreaded ‘sex talk’ with his own children, triplets who are currently in their late teens. He replied:

“It’s important to understand that there should be no ‘sex talk’ at all…this freaks kids out. Rather, an open dialogue between children and their parents [regarding sex] should begin around the age of twelve…parents should answer questions without creating an agenda.”

He explained that his daughter began asking questions at five years old, his sons, however, were slightly different:

“[The] boys closed down. When they began talking about [sex] they talked to their mother.”

I was also more interested in learning about Dr. Drew’s new book, “The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America” due in stores March 17 (you can also pre-order a copy from Amazon.com).

According to an editorial review, the book discusses how celebrity figures, like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, along with their media-enablers, have changed what is considered to be ‘normal behavior’.

When I asked Dr. Drew to tell me a little something about the book he stated that celebrities “…are sick. They suffer from traits of clinical narcissism; always needing narcissistic gratification. ” According to the good doc, celebrities from Britney Spears to Robert Pattinson suffer from traits that may include vanity, exhibitionism, superiority, and entitlement. This then leads non-celebs to “mirror” celebrity behavior using outlets like YouTube and internet blogging.

He went on to explain that non-celebrities (that’s you and me, unless of course, someone famous is reading this), “…have their own desire to glorify people until they become envious of that person [and] then tear them down.”

For those of you, like me, who can’t get enough of Dr. Drew’s VH1 programs “Celebrity Rehab” and “Sober House,” fear not! I managed to ask the Doc right before he boarded the plane if he ever worries that the celebs that sign up to be on those programs join the cast more for publicity than for help.

“We are always concerned with what motivates a patient to seek treatment…I have found that if you pay them to show-up and pay them to stay-in, they stay longer and increase their chance of getting better.”

If only there was enough money to pay all the Amy Winehouses in the world to go to rehab.

Lily Allen and Lindsay Lohan to Collaborate?

The Brit poptart and the actress-cum-singer-cum-DJ's-girlfriend plan a meeting of the musical minds.

Could Lily Allen and Lindsay Lohan be the new Paris and Nicole or, er, Paris and Paul McCartney? What we mean is, they're totally BFF and they're totally gonna sing about it.

According to a source quoted by U.K. tabloid The Sun, the pair are planning to record tracks together while on holiday in the Bahamas with Lohan's DJ girlfriend, Samantha Ronson. "They've discussed making a record together, possibly at a pre-arranged studio, while they're away," the source said.

It makes sense -- the girls have a ton in common. Matching "Shhh..." tattoos? Check. An affinity for the ladies? Check. They're SO similar, in fact, that you could almost mistake them for... mischievous, scheming (fraternal) twin sisters separated at birth! Awww! It's just like the remake of that Disney classic we love so much.


From 'Swingtown' to 'Melrose Place'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

And the first actor cast in the new "Melrose Place" is ... Michael Rady.

The "Swingtown" alum landed the gig Wednesday morning, a day after the CW officially greenlighted the pilot for the "Melrose" update, to be directed by Davis Guggenheim.

On the project, penned by "Smallville" exec producers/co-showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, Rady will play Jonah Miller, a cute and quirky 25-year-old aspiring filmmaker who makes his living as a videographer of weddings and bar mitzvahs for the rich and famous after moving to Los Angeles with his fiancee a year ago.

The role is somewhat reminiscent of struggling writer Billy (Andrew Shue) from the original Fox series.

In addition to his role as teacher Doug Stephens on "Swingtown," Rady co-starred in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" and recurred on Showtime's "Sleeper Cell" (as Jason) and ABC Family's "Greek" (as Max). SOURCE

Oh No She Didn't! Paula goes after new judge Kara (Updated with Kara's Response)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Paula Abdul isn't too keen on the addition of fourth judge Kara DioGuardi to "American Idol" this season. It's nothing personal, she says - just business.

"Kara and I have known each other for years and we get along great," Abdul tells the March 9 issue of OK! magazine. "But we tried four judges before and it doesn't work."

Abdul is referring to Angie Martinez, the Hot 97 DJ who joined "Idol" as a judge before the second season but bailed before the season kicked off. Abdul also says the extra person disrupts the flow of the show.

"It takes up so much time for each of us to give our opinion that it slows down the pace of the show," she says.

As for her future on "Idol," Abdul is a little more cagey. "It is the last season of my contract, and I have so many other things I want to do," she says. SOURCE

I wonder what Kara thinks of this...


Following Paula Abdul’s comments that she doesn’t think the idea of four judges on “American Idol” was such a good idea, Kara DioGuardi, who joined “Idol” this year as the fourth member on the judging panel, is firing back.

Paula has a right to her opinions, but I was disappointed by her comments, and hurt that she did not address them to me in person,”
Kara said in an exclusive statement to Access Hollywood.

Nevertheless, Kara is happy to be a part of the “Idol” family and is pleased with what she brings to the judge’s table.

“I am proud of my contributions to the show, and remain excited about the rest of the season,”
Kara told Access. SOURCE

We'll see if they mention this tonight.

Lauren Conrad Covers Seventeen April 2009

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fans of The Hills (and Laguna Beach before that) who’ve witnessed Lauren Conrad have her heart broken over and over again will be happy to know she’s learned from her mistakes.

“I think there was a time when I let a guy, if not several guys, walk all over me — which I would never let happen now,” she tells Seventeen magazine for its April issue. “I’ve grown to realize you can’t allow yourself to be a victim.”

Unlike her past romances with Brody Jenner and Jason Wahler, Conrad has kept her current relationship with actor Kyle Howard away from the cameras. In fact, the fashion designer won’t even officially call him her boyfriend. “He’s a friend,” she tells the magazine. “I’m a fan of labels, but girlfriend doesn’t always look good on me. Ha!”

MTV star is a label she won’t have for much longer: Conrad tells Seventeen the show’s upcoming fifth season (season 4 bonus episodes will premiere in March) will be her last.

“My biggest thing with the show was that I wanted to walk away from it while it’s still a great thing,” she explains. “I always want to remember it that way. I gave MTV a deadline and said, ‘This is as long as I can do it and stay sane.’ ”

How have you changed since the first season? Honestly, it’s difficult for me remember what I was like before I had a mic taped to me. But I think I’ve become a little bit more independent and not quite as.. I don’t want to say it, but pathetic. There are episodes that I watch when I actually annoy myself. I just want to be like, Get it together!

Do you think you’re a drama queen? No. I think that there are times when I get caught up in the drama and I get upset. I can be a little sensitive to thinks, but I don’t think I ever wake up in the morning intending to cause problems. I think that there are definitely people who thrive on drama and they enjoy it. They need to keep their lives exciting. I’m happiest when I’m boring.

What do you think is next for Heidi and Spencer? More music videos? Ha! I don’t know. I do believe they plan to take over the world.


Yes she is on the cover of another magazine because she sells magazines, suck on a D@#K if you are hater.

"Jungle" Star Lindsay Price Heading to "Eastwick"

by Omar Nobles

Lipstick Jungle" star Lindsay Price has been cast in the pilot of ABC's "Eastwick," a drama based on the 1987 movie "The Witches of Eastwick" that starred Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The movie followed the lives of three witches -- Alexandra Medford, Jane Spofford, and Sukie Ridgemont as they develop their powers.

In the series, Price will play Joanna, a "hardworking, shy reporter for the local newspaper," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Former "General Hospital" actress Jamie Ray Newman (ex-Kristina) was also cast on the series.

Though this is great news for Price, it may not be the best news for fans of the NBC dramedy, which also starred Brooke Shields. "Jungle" is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Candace Bushnell.

The series premiered last February as a midseason replacement. Due to the Writer's strike, only 7 episodes were produced for the first season. The show was later renewed for a second season, which began airing in September. The ratings challenged show was moved to Friday's, where it remained until the final produced episode aired.

Rumors of the series impending cancellation would prove to be premature, as the peacock network has yet to make a decision regarding the show. It was suggested the series might get a deal similar to the low-rated "Friday Night Lights," which returned for a third season after a cost-sharing arrangement between NBC and DirectTV. Last month, NBC Entertainment co-chair Ben Silverman spoke on the future of the series during the 2009 NAPTE conference in Las Vegas.

"Lipstick Jungle is so strong and has such a passionate base among a coveted demographic," Silverman said. "That kind of show will have the same approach, and we've already begun that approach, as we've used with Friday Night Lights. We have some incredible channels in our portfolio and we have sister networks that love the show as well. We are analyzing what we need to do to keep that show on the air."

No news of a deal between NBC and DirectTV has been announced at this time.



Samantha Judith Ronson

During the acoustic concert at Genghis Cohen in L.A., Sam got "awwwws" from the crowd when she told 'em "This is for Lindsay," but the song included lyrics like "I'll follow you out of control ... I'm falling after you, in and out of love." In her dedication Sam also said, "You get your heart broken sometimes and then you unbreak it and break it again."

Linds was there -- sitting front row with a digital camera -- and said the song made her mad. Fight 3,173 on the way?

John Cusack in Hot Tub Time Machine? Really?

Hot Tub Time Machine, a comedy previously described on PopWatch as having arguably "the stupidest movie title ever," has landed John Cusack and Rob Corddry. (The Office's Darryl, Craig Robinson, and Sex Drive's Clark Duke are in negotiations to join them.)

Cusack will also serve as a producer on the film, which Variety says revolves around a group of frustrated friends who hit a hot tub at the ski resort where they partied as teens -- and get transported back to 1987. Steve Pink, who cowrote Cusack's Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity, will direct.

Hot Tub Time Machine?  Really?  If it's anything like GPB and High Fidelity, though, I'm up for it.

Verne Troyer wants to do on-screen sexytimes with Gwyneth Paltrow

Verne Troyer has said that his dream movie role would be to star alongside Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Celebrity Big Brother star claimed that if he could appear in any film, he would choose to be the "leading man" opposite Chris Martin's wife.

Troyer also revealed that one of the most unusual things about being little is the sights he sees when he is "walking down the street".

"When I'm walking down the street and someone is in front of me, what do you think I see?" he told Loaded. "Usually the crack of [somebody's] ass."

"If a dude wears [low cut jeans], it's pretty bad."

The Gaslight Anthem TV Appearance, Cover, Opening For Bruce Springsteen

The Gaslight Anthem (http://www.myspace.com/thegaslightanthem) released their new music video for "Great Expectations" today. Go here for the video which was posted a little while ago on ONTD.

And here is some other Gaslight Anthem news:


A few weeks ago, The Gaslight Anthem appeared on David Letterman. They performed their song "The '59 Sound". Incredible performance and much less nervous than they were when they appeared on Conan O'Brien.



A few weeks ago, videos of The Gaslight Anthem front man, Brian Fallon (http://www.myspace.com/brianfallonmusic), was released by PitchFork Media. The videos are of an interview as well as his cover of Bruce Springsteen's "BackStreets".

Interview: Brian Fallon: http://pitchfork.tv/node/2832 || Brian Fallon: "Backstreets": http://pitchfork.tv/videos/gaslight-anthem-backstreets

It's been a big winter for Bruce Springsteen, what with the new album, word of a reissued classic, a new Greatest Hits set, that Super Bowl gig this coming weekend, and then a tour with the E Street Band. We have Brian Fallon from the Gaslight Anthem, whose 2008 album The '59 Sound fuses Springsteen-style rock'n'roll romanticism with terse punk rock. He talks about the role of the Boss' music in his life (not surprisingly, it's huge-- dude was born and raised in New Brunswick, N.J.) and then does a solo version of Born to Run's "Backstreets".

Pitchfork Media


Finally, a couple days ago, MTV posted an article / interview of the band giving an overview of their career and their connection to Bruce Springsteen.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Imagine going from playing shows in dingy New Jersey basements to opening for Bruce Springsteen in London's massive Hyde Park. Then imagine it all happening in less than two years.

That's the case for the Gaslight Anthem, the Garden State's latest progenitors of blue-collar, heart-on-your-sleeve punk. The secret to their success? It's as simple as timing, according to lead singer Brian Fallon.

"I think it was just that the right record struck a right chord with people. I really don't know — you can't plan for that sort of thing," Fallon told MTV News last week from a tour stop in Germany. "That's what people were looking for and we just happened to be the ones there to do it. I'd say we're pretty fortunate to be here."

"It's totally weird because you don't expect people to be singing your songs when you're touring all over the world, and for people to know your songs just like they do at home," Fallon said. "It's exciting, but you get the whole mixture — you're partly unsure about it, and you're partly happy about it. You're not sure where it's all coming from or if it's going too fast."

And to that point, though they were tapped by the Boss himself to serve as the opening act at June's Hard Rock Calling Festival in London, Fallon still doesn't consider the Gaslight Anthem to be anything more than proud carriers of the New Brunswick banner. Emerging from a decades-old scene that has given rise to bands like Thursday, the Bouncing Souls and Lifetime, the band still hold their Jersey ties close.

and then the race...the noise..the sponsors.....i was an honorary referee and hugh laurie was the marshall.
we went around in a lead car before the race began and then we got to eat cheesecake and watch the actual race..well some of it.5 hours is long.
we wanted jeff gordon-he came second.

getting ready for shows....
we have been sorting the tour out from here-in terms of venues,routing etc.
the on-sale begins end of next week-and they do each piece at a time.
personally i'd like it all on sale and we just bring it but it looks as though i do not know enough.

anyhow,i am really looking forward to playing a full tour again-it's been months and months of one-offs-and now here we come.
i will see you all out there.

the wrestler is a great movie.

kill your friends by john niven is an insane book.
impossible to put down.adults only....

spring is here.

Sherlock Holmes gay shock in new movie

IT’S shockingly eleMENtary, my queer Watson.

Super sleuth Sherlock Holmes is to be portrayed in a GAY way in Guy Ritchie’s new flick.

The fictional him-vestigator is seen SHARING A BED with his dear, dear, Dr Watson and also enjoying some man-to-man wrestling with his close chum.

Speaking about the film, in which he plays Sherlock, Robert Downey Jr said: “We’re two men who happen to be room-mates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s badass.”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary character is famous for donning his deerstalker hat, puffing on a pipe and solving mysteries with his trusted sidekick.

Jude Law. who plays Watson in the film, added: “Guy wanted to make this about the relationship between Watson and Holmes. They’re both mean and complicated.”

All the makings of a thrilling oooh-dunnit, obviously!


lol They didn't seem gay from the script that was leaked a few months ago (idk if it's still online), but hey, that script was from a year ago...

Megan Fox Break Up: Shia LaBeouf's Dream Come True?

Actress Megan Fox has reportedly called off her engagement to Brian Austin Green.

According to Us Magazine, the pair split amicably after the relationship had "simply run its course," and the two plan to remain friends.

Could this leave an opening for Fox's co-star Shia LaBeouf to run through?

The Transformers stars, who just wrapped up filming the sequel to their mega-hit, have expressed their admiration for one another in the past.

Fox, 22, said in 2007 that “Shia is the best kisser ever,” and gushed about their on-screen romance.

In the August 2007 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, LaBeouf, also 22, admitted that it is “really easy to fall for someone on set.”

And in September, the stars walked the red carpet at LaBeouf’s film premiere Eagle Eye, raising eyebrows yet again as they smiled and embraced for photographers.

Add that to the countless shirtless scenes in the Transformers sequel with LaBeouf and Fox, where they – as she puts it – “make out a little bit,” and Hollywood could have its next mega-star merger.

"Which rock star has extra-special house parties? Guests check their clothes at the door, don a robe and indulge in huge bowls of every drug you can imagine." [NYDN]

2) "Which ageing style icon is fuming after being dumped by a top firm for a younger model? The woman in question is threatening to make their name mud to every supermodel she knows." [Mirror]

3) "This one didn't actually happen at the Academy Awards per se, but happened at a celebrity watching party. A big and famous celebrity watching party. This D list celebutard embarrassed himself and everyone around him when he kept doing his 'Indian impression' everytime the camera showed the Slumdog cast. Throughout the night he made disparaging remarks about anything and everything Indian until at one point a spouse of an actress at the same party told him if he did it one more time the spouse would kick the celebutard's ass." [CDaN]

4) "During one of the Oscar after-parties, a formerly-nominated actress stepped outside to smoke a cigarette. She was soon joined by an industry type and another actress. The first actress told the other two women how completely disgusted she was by a famous middle-aged actor - who starred in more than one film last year - who had approached her during the party. He could he not stop staring at her plunging neckline, proclaimed himself a breast expert, and asked her if he could touch her breasts to see if they were real. The second actress let out a little cry of surprise and said that he had said exactly the same thing to her. The first actress suggested that they should approach him, proclaim themselves as hair experts, and ask if they could tug on his hair to see if it was real or plugs. They also discussed 'accidentally' spilling a cold drink down his pants the next time they saw him." [BlindGossip]

Keira Knightley Attracted To Men With Good Shoes

Keira Knightley is attracted to men with good shoes. The "Duchess" star, who has been dating actor Rupert Friend for three years, insists she would only ever go out with someone who takes pride in their footwear.

The 23-year-old actress said: "I go for someone who is a little brooding and somebody you can have a good conversation with, a good fight with, who will always keep you guessing and make you laugh. And he has to have good shoes."

This isn't the first time Keira has spoken about her shoe obsession.

The British beauty previously revealed buying expensive footwear is one of her biggest extravagances.

She said: "If I see a pair of shoes that I adore and they haven't got them in my size, I still have to have them. My house with Rupert might not have a lot of furniture but it's got a lot of my shoes!"


Chris Brown taking anger management classes

Chris Brown is reportedly taking anger management classes in preparation for his forthcoming court case, following his alleged attack on Rihanna earlier this month.

Brown is accused of attacking Rihanna, who he was dating at the time of the alleged incident on February 8, and must answer charges in Los Angeles on March 5.

Now the New York Daily News is reporting that he is undertaking anger management classes in Glendale, California to help prepare him.

"Chris doesn't actually have to go by law," an anonymous source is quoted as saying, "but he believes it will make him look better to the public, and he wants to try to get in a few classes before March 5."

Chris Brown recently hired Alan Nierob, Mel Gibson's publicist, to help crisis-manage his career.

Illusionist Talks More About Britney's tour!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As Britney Spears gears up to kick off her Circus tour March 3 in New Orleans, PEOPLE enlisted the tour's resident illusionist, Ed Alonzo, for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the tricks – musical and otherwise – the star, 27, has in store for fans.

So is this comeback for the serially-troubled Spears? "I don't know if I would call it a comeback," says Alonzo, a lead illusionist on MyNetworkTV's Masters of Illusion. "It's more of a continuation of the greatness she always had."

Britney Plays a Magician's Assistant
During one song (Alonzo won't say which one), Britney becomes part of his magic act. "She's incorporated into major illusions. She'll do dissection, where she's sawed in half, and transposition, where she's in one place and ends up in another place. She's doing all the classic elements of magic."

Yep, It'll be a Spectacle
"There are three giant [circus] rings with unbelievable things hanging in the air and flying around," says Alonzo.

Expect Outrageous Dancing
"She's dancing so hard in the show," Alonzo says. "It's elements of hip-hop, tumbling, it's really outrageous. The kind of choreography in the show is similar to the kind of stuff you see in America's Best Dance Crew."

Brit's Back in Shape
"She looks really incredible," says Alonzo, who played Max, the owner of the diner hangout, in the '90s TV hit Saved By The Bell. "She's really toned. Her stomach looks fantastic. This is the Britney Spears people remember from the past. Even stronger and better."

This Time, Britney's on Point
Forget her bungled performance at the 2007 MTV's VMAs. "She's really got it together," says Alonzo. "She's totally focused. And she's working her butt off."

Family and friends are taking part in a massive walk for Jade to raise money to fight cancer.

More than 500 people have so far signed up for Saturday’s event.

Jack will take part if Jade is well enough for him to leave her. His siblings have also pledged support.

Organiser and friend Jerri Lee, 24, said Walk for Jade took off when she posted details on Facebook.

She said: “All of her mates just want to help as much as we can.

“The walk is about her, her family and fighting cancer. I told her about it at the wedding and she was absolutely thrilled.

“It really touched her heart. We are all doing whatever we can to support her and give her a boost.”

Co-organiser Jane Collins added: “We want to raise awareness of the dangers of cancer.

“Jade has made women more aware of how important it is to get screened for cervical cancer.”

Money raised will go to a cancer charity of Jade’s choice. The event will start at Femme Fatale, Jade’s beauty salon in Loughton, and end in High Beach, Essex.

Meanwhile, the North West Cancer Research Fund yesterday said Jade’s high-profile plight has prompted people to be more generous with their donations despite the recession.

Takings are up 50 per cent – tens of thousands of pounds – compared with this time last year. Chief Anne Jackson said: “Jade’s experiences have touched the hearts of millions. She’s increased public awareness.”


Jade Goody is gently preparing her two young sons for her tragic end by reading them a children’s tale about dying.

Badger’s Parting Gifts tells the moving story of a group of friends saddened as a wise old badger dies – but they are comforted as they reflect on how much his life and love enriched them.

Jade – given the book by hospital staff to read to Bobby-Jack, five, and Freddy, four – said: “It explains about heaven and where people go.

“I have been reading that to them. But I think my boys know now that I’m dying. Yeah, I think they do now.”

The tale sees the dying old badger leave his pals a poignant farewell note, as well as the memory of how he touched their lives.

The Just Like A Pill singer left fans wide-eyed after hanging from the ceiling on apparatus and showing off her mind-boggling stamina at the secret gig. Decked out in a bizarre cabaret-meets-pirate costume, Pink wore killer heels, a huge head dress and a bushy feathered tail. She later ditched the bulky attire to show off her concave abs at the Palais De Nikaia in Nice. Pink, who kicks off her Funhouse tour in Belgium tomorrow, plays at the London O2 on May 1, 2 and 4. - Source:Showbiz

Iron Man 2 Films In April

"Iron Man 2" is days away from kicking off its principal photography. Giving the latest update to the "Iron Man" sequel, Marvel Studios announced on Wednesday, February 24, that the second movie of the superhero in armored iron suit will begin filming in early April.

While speculations around the casting of this movie have been running wild, the studio's press release only named Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle as the film's cast ensemble. No words have been shared regarding the circulating casting rumors around Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, Mickey Rourke as either Crimson Dynamo or Whiplash, and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, among others.

"Iron Man 2" will be directed by Jon Favreau. Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise their roles as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Pepper Potts respectively, while Don Cheadle is filling the shoes of Colonel James 'Rhodey' Rhodes in place of Terrence Howard. Set for U.S. release on May 7, 2010, this Marvel's superhero movie reportedly will see Stark puking in a toilet while donning his Iron Man armor.

Nicole Sullivan Is Pregnant

<br/><a href="http://s5.tinypic.com/2cxaqo7.jpg" target="_blank">View Raw Image</a>

Nicole Sullivan, star of Lifetime's Rita Rocks is pregnant, she tells Life & Style exclusively.

Nicole, who's married to actor Jason Packham, tells Life & Style, "Jason and I are so excited to be expecting our second child, a boy, this summer."

The couple's first child, Dashel Pierce Packham, is 18 months old.

Nicole says the pregnancy will be written into her sitcom's storyline. "I couldn't be more proud to be an actor working for such a wonderful group of women at Lifetime. They have been incredibly supportive, and we are looking forward to the viewers coming along for the ride with us."

Nicole is the second member of the Rita Rocks cast to announce her pregnancy this month. Co-star Tisha Campbell-Martin is due in late summer.


I don't watch Rita Rocks, but I think I might start. I think it's hilarious that both she and Tisha are pregnant.


Holly Madison and Criss Angel Break Up

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The original Girl Next Door, Holly Madison, has amicably parted ways with her Mindfreak beau, Criss Angel, after nearly four months of dating.

"She was very much in love with him, and they're still very close friends," a source close to the former couple told E! News, adding that the decision to split was mutual.

"It was a conflict of schedules. She felt she couldn't devote 100 percent of her time in Vegas and his career at the expense of her career and her goals."

The 29-year-old Madison and 41-year-old Angel had been cohabitating at the magician's Sin City abode since December, but the Playboy pinup recently moved back in with family.

The two were first spotted cozying up last October, shortly after Madison and Hugh Hefner had called it quits. While Angel and Madison at first claimed to be just good friends, they quickly went public with their romance, moved in together and even—a first for Madison—met each others' parents.

Despite news of the split, the couple's relationship has showed no signs of outward strain recently.

On Valentine's Day, the pair was spotted smooching it up in Sin City, and just last month they vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, along with fellow reality star Paula Abdul.

Sudden though the split may seem, it was not entered into lightly.

"It was a tough decision for her to make and come back to L.A. and pursue her career," the source told E! News. "She still has very intense feelings for him."

Angel, in the meantime, remains in Las Vegas where he performs his show, Criss Angel Believe, five nights a week at the Luxor.

Liam and Noel Gallagher proved they have lost none of their appeal with music fans, although Noel had to accept losing the Hero of the Year title to US President Barack Obama. Villain of the Year went to former president George W Bush for a record-breaking sixth time.

Pete Doherty - or Peter Doherty, as he now prefers to be known - was named best male solo artist.

Tennessee band Kings of Leon won the best album award for Only By The Night, which also earned them a Brit last week.

Other winners included MGMT (best new band and best track for Time To Pretend) The Killers (best international band), Muse (best live band) and The Mighty Boosh (best TV).

Tween favourites the Jonas Brothers have failed to win over NME readers, landing the worst band and worst album prizes.

Amy Winehouse was voted the world's worst dressed woman, while television presenter Alexa Chung was voted best dressed.

Elbow were honoured for their outstanding contibution to British music. The band won the Mercury Prize after 18 years of toiling away in the music business for little fame or fortune.

The Cure won the Godlike Genius Award and closed the ceremony at London's Brixton Academy. The goth rockers have been a feature of the British music scene for close to 30 years, scoring their first top 10 hit in 1983 with The Love Cats. Previous recipients of the award include Ian Brown, New Order, U2 and The Clash.

Conor McNicholas, NME editor, said of the awards: "Oasis have proved yet again, with a triumphant seventh album, that our love affair with them simply has no sign of ending. The Stateside scene continues to go from strength to strength, with MGMT smashing through the ranks to emerge as one of the brightest talents we've seen in a long time. And all of these artists have in part been influenced by the Gods of the 2009 awards - The Cure."

Recession still in effect, celebrities don't care, quitting jobs like hot cakes

Actor Freddie Prinze Jr has indeed left WWE's creative team. We reported a few days ago that there had been little to no use of Prinze's creative input on Smackdown within the last several months, and sources have now confirmed that he has left the company. Although Prinze had not been to a Smackdown taping in nearly two months, it should be noted that he was very well liked by the wrestlers as well as most people backstage as he was a very avid pro wrestling fan and has been a follower of the WWE product for many years. Prinze was hired by WWE back in July of 2008 and worked solely on the Smackdown brand.

We all know who's excited and is awaiting his return back home!

Details revealed on Sam's texts to Britney

After the court heard testimony on Monday from Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears, the hearing to decide whether or not to extend the restraining order against Sam Lutfi continued today with revealing testimony from her hairdresser and bodyguard.

According to Roberta Romero, who has been working on the pop superstar's hair for about a year now, sometime in late December, Sam got a hold of her cell phone number and sent her a total of 11 texts between Dec. 24 and Dec. 28.

Per Roberta's testimony, Sam first began contacting her in early December, when he attempted to call her several times from a blocked phone. Though he refused at first to identify himself, she was able to get him to admit that it was indeed Sam. He allegedly tried to have Roberta get a message to Britney that he was "trying to help her," but she refused, telling him that she believed him to be a bad influence on Brit.

Lindsay Lohan offered movie role opposite Warren Beatty

What does Warren Beatty have in mind for Lindsay Lohan?

He has something, because Beatty is apparently dangling a new movie role in front of the actress. But it has some strings attached to it.

What I’m told is that Warren, the smartest guy in Hollywood, bar none, wants Ms. Lohan to come live under his roof — at least one of his guest roofs — while he shoots this movie.

And wait, you’re wondering, what movie is this? Beatty is said to have a script he wants to direct and star in, with La Lohan possibly playing his daughter.

Lindsay is said to know this is a chance of a lifetime and a way to re-start her languishing career.

But Lohan is a gifted actress with a lot of baggage and reputation for not making it to the set always on time and in one piece. So Beatty’s proviso sounds like a smart idea. And how bad it can be to live up on Mulholland Drive under the aegis of Annette Bening? I can hear a lot of young actresses heading to the phone now to try and get that gig.

Lindsay has a lot of friends in the business including Conde Nast/Vanity Fair genius editor Ingrid Sischy. The former pilot of Interview magazine is said to be eager also to help Lindsay get back on track, and has offered her (the right kind of ) magazine covers. So it’s up to Lohan, who’s wasted too much time playing at life and a career.

Lindsay, pack your bags!


this is the perfect role for her to restart her career. she would be really stupid to pass this one up.

Paris Hilton: I love Chris Brown and Rihanna

Paris Hilton has once again spoken out to deny any involvement in Chris Brown's alleged assault on girlfriend Rihanna earlier this month.

Paris was accused of sending a text message to Chris, 19, which then ignited an argument between Rihanna and the Run It hitmaker.

Brown was later arrested and Rihanna, 21, was reportedly left with two "huge contusions" on both sides of her forehead, a bloody lip and bloody nose.

But Hilton is adamant she didn't cause the chaos - insisting she is "friends" with both Chris and Rihanna.

She tells Extra, "I have no idea how I got involved in that.

"People were calling me saying, 'It's your fault.' I'm like, 'What?!'

"I love Chris Brown. I love Rihanna. I'm friends with both of them so you know, the fact that I got involved in it was ridiculous -- but I wish her the best. I love her. She's amazing."

Britney Spears desperate for boyfriend

Britney Spears’ hunt for a new man is the tabloid-esque Hot Topic of the Week.

The “Circus” singer, who has been single since splitting from hit and run drivin’ photog Adnan Ghalib last year, “feels like a failure without a guy who she can love and loves her back”, a friend of the star has revealed to Heat Magazine.

Britney is allegedly “obsessed” with finding a man as she embarks on a concert tour around the world, which kicks off in New Orleans on March 3.

“She looks around and sees other women her age in successful relationships and says to herself, ‘Why can’t that be me?’ Finding a man she can love is becoming an obsession for Britney.”

“Britney really wants to get her life back on track. She has her family around her and a couple of assistants, but no one to really share things with,” says her pal.

“I think Britney would be happier living in a trailer park, looking after her kids and working as a hairdresser as long as she had a guy by her side who really loves her.”

George Harrison (February 25, 1943 - November 29, 2001) RIP

George Harrison (25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001) rock guitarist, singer-songwriter and film producer. He would have been 66.

He achieved international fame as lead guitarist in The Beatles, and is listed number 21 in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of "The 100 Best Guitarists of All Time".

His compositions with The Beatles include "Here Comes the Sun", "Something" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

British pop suffers during economic crisis, would like you to organize its tours.

Frankmusik. Live & Lost.

On Saturday 21st March Channel 4 and MySpace will be dropping Vincent Frank aka Frankmusik off in a field somewhere North of Aberdeen with £20 and instructions to sort out his own tour, starting with an appearance at Radio 1's Annie Mac Presents party in Glasgow that night.

What happens next is up to you.

Obviously ONTD should take this over and help Frankmusik get to where he needs to be in exchange for signage and shoutouts.


Lindsay Lohan and I Are Fucking Done Professionally


An oddly titled story called "Lindsay Just Can't Stop… Hopeless" features a picture taken the night she was out partying with Lily Allen, and there's some kind of white substance up Lindsay's nostril (Fig 3). She told her family it was lint. But a "friend" says: "She's so wacked out of her mind she doesn't know what day it is sometimes." LL told friends she doesn't want to live past 30 because she doesn't want to get old and ugly. She wants to die young like her idol Marilyn Monroe

30 Rock is run by the GOP

Other GOP Members Who Resemble 30 Rock Characters

First there were the ubiquitous comparisons of Sarah Palin to Tina Fey, and now, the day after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s response to President Obama’s address, all anyone can talk about is how much he sounded and acted like Kenneth from 30 Rock

So, I got to wondering which other Republicans have 30 Rock counterparts. Here are the results of my scientific study.

Did Paris Hilton Follow Robert Pattinson to Japan?

The Los Angeles contingency began to emerge from its post-Oscar stupor, and that includes Paris Hilton. By now, everyone has heard that Hilton and Robert Pattinson had some private time in the garden at Patrick Whitesell’s Oscar bash in the Hollywood Hills this weekend before the Twilight star boarded a flight for Tokyo. Which made us wonder why Hilton was just spotted at Narita International Airport, apparently with Amanda Bynes’s ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt. Do we believe that the hotel heiress was just going to Japan for business

Padma Lakshmi. So Meaty.

FIRST LOOK: Padma Lakshmi's Juicy New Ad
Padma Lakshmi basically eats for a living, but for most of her life the Top Chef host had a limited diet.

"I grew up a vegetarian," says the host. "Then, because I grew up in the states, I started slowly eating meat. First it was bologna sandwiches, or pepperoni on pizza. As a teenager, [my friends and I] would always go have burgers. I would scarf them down!"

Now, Lakshmi is putting her passion for meat into a new commercial for Hardee's Bacon Western Thickburger. "I think it's a beautiful love song to food," she says of the ad. "I think eating in itself is the act of great sensuality, so all you have to do is point the camera in the right direction."

Asked how the food and fashion icon stays fit, Lakshmi says she works hard to maintain her figure. "I work out all the time! I don't just sit around and eat burgers whenever I want. Oh, if I could I probably would, but I don't," she says.

The Game's doing an album, 'Cause he's broke

The Game has reportedly put aside his plans to retire and he will release another album.
The Compton rapper claimed his third album, 2008's L.A.X., would be his last. But according to eyewitnesses at a recent concert, he told audience members he is already working on his next studio record.
"I love y'all, I swear to God I love y'all. I'm not gonna lie, I'm in the studio working on my fourth album." The Game allegedly told onlookers.

Reports also suggest the album has a working title of 'Global Warming'.

Where my DAWG at? In jail throwing trays of food. That's where!

This undated file photo provided by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office showsJailed rapper DMX now is facing additional charges after he allegedly threw a tray of food at a Maricopa County detention officer.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was booked on aggravated assault charges Wednesday, according to County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The 38-year-old rapper already is serving a 90-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to felony charges of theft, drug posession and a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty on Dec. 30.

Arpaio says Simmons became upset Sunday after being told he could not have a meal he took from a serving tray. Arpaio says Simmons then threw the tray and its contents at an officer, who wasn't injured.

Simmons has been on a bread and water diet as punishment for an earlier jail violation.

A message left with Simmons' attorney was not immediately returned.

Keira Knightley "Lear" Movie Canned
By Garth Franklin Tuesday February 24th 2009 10:28PM

In a correspondence with Keira Knightley's agent today, Keira Web learned a few things about the upcoming schedule of the British actress.

First up she is no longer attached to Ruby Films' new adaptation of Shakespeare's "King Lear" as the entire project has been shelved.

A while back Knightley was attached to a film called "Tulip Fever", also by Ruby Films, that similarly got canned.

Also she will be playing the part of Lillian Palmer the actress in the currently filming "London Boulevard". Previous speculation had her linked to play Colin Farrell's love interest Aisling.

Finally, despite reports, Knightley is still NOT confirmed for the "My Fair Lady" remake.

Okay, so I've read the 'London Boulevard' script, and it sort of conflicts this report. In the supposed script, her character is named 'Charlotte', and she is both the reclusive actress, and the love interest of Colin Farrell's character. Who knows if the script floating around is real, or not. I hope it is, because I'm dying for some Keira/Colin love.


Hilary Duff on the Rachel Ray Show 2/24/09

Hilary Duff chats about Fay Dunaway's comments on RACHAEL RAY show.

Part 2

She looked so pretty, and she handles the Fay D question very well and I love how she doesn't look too happy when Rachel puts up the Best Of album just by her face expression you could tell she wishes it was never released. I have a lot of faith in her to do the Bonnie and Clyde role well.

t.i. performs at the university of arkansas, remains sexy while doing so

So...I just got back from a T.I. concert hosted by the University of Arkansas. How my school managed to secure such badass sexiness, even I don't know.

edit: Also, the concert was free, bbs. Omg. :3


Aside from the gratuitous amounts of bumping and grinding that went on around me, I had a really great time. He played a lot of his old stuff, and it was like a 15-18 song set, so yayyyy. He performed some of his newer material too including Swagga Like Us, Whatever You Like, and Dead And Gone. (I sound like an infomercial. Ugh.)

This is supposed to be one of his last concerts before he goes to jail. He talked a lot about haters and thanked his supporters and those who've stayed with him from day one. He mentioned something about the interwebs and in my heart of hearts I hoped he'd mention ONTD, but he didn't. :( Ooh, and he gave a shoutout to Rihanna before performing Live Your Life saying that she was going through a difficult time right now so the song and our support went out to her.

Anyway, here are a couple of pictures and videos from the concert. It was crazy awesome good. Enjoy! :)

Last night it was Clue, tonight it's The Neverending Story.

Warner Bros. and a pair of top-tier production companies are in the early stages of a reboot of the 1984 children's fantasy classic.

The new movie will put a modern spin on the material by examining the more nuanced details of the book that were glossed over in the first feature.
