Britney Spears to visit sick children, to play free gig, inpires twinks


 

Britney Spears to visit sick children at Great Ormond Street Hospital

It's still weeks before Britney's Circus tour rolls into town but the singer's already happy to jump through hoops.

Britters's show may be too hot for the kids to see but she won't be ignoring her younger fans.

Between her gigs at London's O2 Arena in June, Brit, 27, plans to visit sick children at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

A source said: "She would really like to do this. In Miami she met up with 40 kids and posed for pictures with them. She found it really moving that just a couple of minutes with the children could mean so much to them."

Ah, bless...

 the loveable Queen of Mean - Miss Lisa Lampanelli!!

Lisa was in Detroit today and was HILARIOUSLY funny - as usual.  When I asked her to hold the sign, she was like WTF is this?  I told her it's a celebrity gossip blog called "Oh No They Didn't" (as I pointed to the O,N,T and D and said it out loud to her all latina like oh no you di'nt) that adores her and she was like, "OH YEAH they do love me!  I'll hold it!"  So we take the picture and then she told me to tell you all that she will sue your fucking pants off if you write shit about her!

She also called my friend a stupid fucking white bitch and a drunken whore because my friend was having trouble taking a picture of her and this other fan  (because the fan handed my friend a fucking 2005 CAMERA PHONE to take the picture with - ew!)  I started laughing my ass off right in front of that crazy Lampa-whoo-haa bitch and couldn't stop!

Also - just so ya'll know I'M NOT A STALKER!!  I only go to public celebrity appearances - stalkers go to Kristen Stewart's HOME and ask for autographs. (because OMG they drove all the way from Las Vegas - I would never!)

Thank you to the user who made my new icon!  heeeeey

Also - WHERE ARE ALL THE HOT, RICH GAY MEN IN DETROIT???  holla at me dammit!



Flashback alert ya'll!  Me and Lisa from March 2006.  Deer in the mutha fuckin headlights!

Anne Hathaway as Judy Garland? I would rather die.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Word is that the Oscar nominated but never winning, Anne Hathaway is in talks to play the glorious explosion of a person that Judy Garland was in the new book to film, Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland.

By glorious explosion of course I mean her pill popping, drunken train wreck to hell days that celebrities over the age of 30 barely give us in these times. Judy got Anna Nicole bad, and I’m sure Anne’s dying to prove what we already know…she deserves that damn Oscar. ‘Anne dearly wants to do a musical and this could be her chance. The big attraction is that it really will be her singing, not recordings of Judy. She is determined to do it justice. ‘If she nails the part, she will be a shoo-in for some big awards.’

Fingers crossed Anne, we know you can do it.

source

If this gets made, I don't know what I'll do with myself. I do like Anne, I do, but she certainly cannot handle the singing (yes, I know Anne is a good singer, but you will never convince me that she could handle Judy's style). Guys, I am shaking and crying right now. Reasons why I believe this wouldn't work:
-Anne singing? Uh... not as stron. Judy was 4'11", I can't see Anne being able to convincingly play someone so small. Plus when Judy gained weight, I don't see her being able to pull off that either. They also don't look alike at all (if anything she looks more like Liza). And Anne playing later Judy I can't imagine. Even her speaking voice was pretty unique and I can't see it working on Anne without sounding forced. Just please just bring back Judy Davis. Or an unknown who is small and good at lip synching.

P.S. Because some of you don't know.. I not actually crying, and I am not taking this as seriously as it appears. I just don't like this idea, I'm not going to kill myself over it.

Madonna's nanny quits... then is told to leave immediately



The nanny in sole charge of Madonna’s adopted son David Banda has left suddenly – despite plans for the star to adopt another baby from Malawi.

It was revealed yesterday that the nanny, an Australian called Angela, had handed in her notice, only to be told by the 50-year-old singer to leave before the notice period was complete.
A source said: ‘Angela is distraught. Madonna told her the news two hours before she was due to go on her annual month-long leave.

‘Angela was incredibly upset and very surprised because she had been told that Madonna is due to adopt a second baby from Malawi very soon.’

It is understood that Angela, who was working for Madonna in New York, handed in her notice earlier this month.

‘The rumour is that Madonna was furious that Angela was leaving and dismissed her before she had the chance to complete her full notice,’ a source who works closely with the singer said last night.

‘All Madonna’s employees work incredibly long hours, so it’s no surprise that Angela had had enough. If you work for Madonna you are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There’s no such thing as a weekend.’
The timing could not be more inconvenient for Madonna, who confirmed last week that she is planning to return to Malawi in the next couple of months to adopt another child.
Sources say that because of the star’s punishing work schedule she is hugely dependent on a team of carers who look after her three children – Lourdes, Rocco and David, whom she adopted in Malawi two years ago.
According to her aides, a personal assistant will be sent there next month to select a baby and ensure the official documentation is in place.
When Madonna and her former husband Guy Ritchie adopted David, the move was mired in controversy.
Malawian officials initially refused to allow the then 13-month-old boy to leave because the official paperwork was not in place.
Civil rights activists also opposed the adoption, accusing the singer of using her celebrity status to circumvent Malawi’s laws that say prospective parents have to live there for 18 months.
It was only after a two-year legal wrangle that a High Court judge finally awarded Madonna and Ritchie permanent custody.
Yesterday, David Banda’s biological father, Yohane Banda, revealed he has been told to prepare himself for a meeting with Madonna.
Mr Banda, 33, said officials from the pop star’s charity, Raising Malawi, had sent word of a visit, which would be ‘very soon’.
But the fact that Madonna is determined to adopt another child is also said to have infuriated Ritchie, who is already concerned about the custody arrangements involving the couple’s children.
A friend said yesterday: ‘Guy has already had to make plans to be around for most of the summer to look after the kids because Madonna is working. No one knows how she will cope without a nanny. She depends on her staff very heavily.’

Last night a spokesman for Madonna said: ‘I do not comment on household issues but I can assure you that David and Madonna’s other two children are very well taken care of at all times.’

Mandy Moore & Ryan Adams: Newlywed Bliss



Happily posing for pictures as newlyweds, Mandy Moore and husband Ryan Adams were all smiles as they arrived at LAX Airport in Los Angeles on Saturday (March 21).

Miss Moore married her rocker beau just over a week ago in a simple, casual wedding ceremony in Savannah, Georgia - surprising most everyone when it was announced that they'd tied the knot.

Aside from her personal life developments, Mandy is also looking forward to the upcoming release of her new album, Amanda Leigh, due in stores on May 26.

Meanwhile, the first single, "I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of the Week", is set to hit iTunes this week - described as sounding "a bit like a lighter, softer, folksier Kelly Clarkson."

RIP Jade Goody

ESSEX - England - Jade Goody has died. She passed away peacefully this morning according to media reports.



The news has come as a shock to many who wrongly believed that Jade was still alive but the celebrity magazine OK's exclusive reveals that Jade died this morning after a long and well publicised battle with cervical cancer.

OK magazine also published Jade's last words spoken before her death: "I will come back from heaven to look after my boys."

Max Clifford was seen at Jade's Essex home in Upshire visibly upset after the passing of his biggest cash cow yet.

"Max is inconsolable. I don't think he'll find anyone like Jade Goody again. She was the easiest client to exploit he has ever had and this is going to break his black greedy heart," Sue Willis, PA to Clifford was quoted as saying in the OK magazine article.

The same magazine that held exclusive rights to Jade's wedding has also chosen to break the heartbreaking news of her death.

James Franco Joins Your Highness



If you’ve been wondering what David Gordon Green might do to follow up last year’s Pineapple Express and the three episodes of Eastbound & Down that he directed, it looks like he is planning to stay within the realm of comedy for at least a little while longer. This week we have a bit of an update on his next film, Your Highness, which was first announced last May. Apparently it is another stoner comedy, but this time instead of mashing it up with the action genre, they’re going full on fantasy. I guess that reference to Krull in Pineapple Express was no coincidence!

Danny McBride will play an “arrogant, lazy prince who must complete a quest to save his father’s kingdom”, and we have also learned that James Franco is attached to co-star, although his exact role has yet to be revealed. What has me even more excited, however, is the fact that they have recruited Spectral Motion (Hellboy II, Pan’s Labyrinth) to provide the creature effects. That’s right, this movie has creature effects! According to Harry Knowles, McBride’s character has a “legendary encounter with an amorous Minotaur”, among other things. I will admit that I was a bit disappointed with Pineapple Express, but knowing how much David Gordon Green loves genre films, I seriously cannot wait to see what he comes up with here. Your Highness is expected to start shooting in Ireland soon; we’ll definitely have more on this exciting project as it develops.

Jonas Brothers urged to exorcise home

The Jonas Brothers have been advised to spiritually cleanse the listed Hollywood building that they hope to buy.

Celebrity psychic Kenny Kingston said that the former house of Marion Davis was haunted by both "good and bad" spirits, and that it should be blessed before the singing trio move in.

Kingston told WENN that the Hollywood Hills property has a history of high-profile affairs, illegitimate children, outrageous parties and a mysterious fire which almost destroyed the building 20 years ago.

Kingston, who held a seance after learning that the Jonas Brothers had put in an offer for the property, said: "I've visited that home and it's frequented by spirits, good and bad.

"My spirits tell me the house has a history of bad health and, therefore, the Jonas boys will need to guard their health in this house. The place should be blessed before the brothers move in."

Kingston said he fears he was given a devastating vision of the mansion's future, explaining: "While we were speaking with the spirits on Tuesday, we could smell smoke.

"This could just be a reminder that the house was the scene of a fire, but it's more likely an omen of something that is to happen in the future," he warned.

R Kelly probed in alleged investment scam

R. Kelly is being probed to see if he had any involvement in an alleged South African concert investment scam.

The singer has been linked to Durban woman Busisiwe Priscilla Zakwe, who stands accused of conning investors to back plans to bring the R&B singer to the country.

According to the Daily Star, Prosecutor Blackie Swart wants to establish if Kelly had any involvement in the case and has asked for a detailed explanation from the singer himself. He said: "I sent an email and also faxed a letter to Kelly's agent last week. We have not received any response from them yet.

"We will contact them if they do not respond because we want to deal with this matter urgently."

Zakwe, who was arrested in 2005, claims that she deposited 10.5 million South African rand (£694,400) into Kelly's bank account, but that the promised concerts never happened.

Paul Rudd on...Why He Feels A Little Gay

I always thought I'd be a really good gay guy. I love American Idol. I watch Antiques Roadshow like crazy. Guys like Oscar Wilde, Stephen Fry, Elton John — they're all very bright, with a razor-sharp wit. David Sedaris — who's funnier than David Sedaris? The Saturday Night Live that I hosted was such a gay-heavy show. But it didn't even cross my mind until after. The family that kept kissing each other — I didn't even think of that as being gay.

Kris Marshall faces Paternity Test


Kris Marshall (Love Actually) is facing a paternity test after a neighbour alleged she is pregnant with his child.

The British actor has been with his girlfriend Kelly Eastwood for two years, but reportedly began an affair with the unnamed female neighbour last year.

My Family star Marshall split from the woman last month when she revealed she is pregnant - and he is urging her to undergo a DNA test to determine who is the father.

A source tells British tabloid the News of the World, "At first he didn't want anything to do with it and hasn't seen her since - but now he must have changed his stance as he now wants her to have the DNA test."

The source adds that the neighbour is "devastated" at Marshall's demand and claims she has had no other lovers.

A spokesman for Marshall says, "If it turns out positive he will hold up his hands and accept his parental responsibilities."

Ruben Studdard's New Soon-to-be Hit Single, "TOGETHER"


Ruben Studdard shoots 'Together' video in Nashville




March 17, 2009

Ruben Studdard spent yesterday in Nashville shooting a video for his single Together at the new nightclub Fuse.

“I do a performance in the club, and you’ll see these two workers here that have a relationship,” says American Idol’s second-season winner, who makes the single available as a download today. “It goes through the complexities of what’s going on with them.”
 

“His voice kind of brings all these people together,” says director Roman White, who previous has done videos for Kelly Clarkson (Don’t Waste Your Time), Josh Gracin (Favorite State of Mind) and Carrie Underwood (pretty much all of them). “We have a primary couple –- kind of a bartender and a waiter -- who work in the nightclub and have been giving each other faraway glances for a long time, always kind of missing each other. Finally, they see each other at the very end and finally find true love. You know, just like it happens in the real world -- just with better lighting and a nice soundtrack.”

“The cool thing about this video is that the focus is not all on me,” Ruben says. “I really like when artists do videos that really aren’t centered on them.”

 

Together was written and produced by the Stargate production team. “It’s a song that talk about how nothing is better than sticking into a relationship and nothing matters other than the person that you’re with, and everything will work out if you just stay together,” Ruben says. “That’s a really good message for a song.”

 

It’s the first single from Ruben’s new album, Love Is, which comes out May 19.

 

Love Is will include a version of It’s Your Love, previously a hit for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, that John Rich of country duo Big & Rich co-produced with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

“The majority of the album was produced with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis,” Ruben says. “We wrote songs together. I also came to Nashville and wrote songs with Tom Shapiro, Bob DiPiero, Bill Luther, Barry Dean and Marcus Hummon.

This album really gave me the opportunity to do songs that I think will really capture the whole American Idol audience. I had 60 million people vote for me, and I’m almost certain that all those people don’t listen to Urban AC radio.”

 http://blogs.usatoday.com/idolchatter/2009/03/ruben-studdard.html

Listen to the song here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH_kBtrBTsE):
 


Ruben will sing "Together" during this week's American Idol results show on Thursday March 26.

FYI, according to YAHOO!'s Chart Watch (http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/chart_watch), Ruben's career sales are 2,487,000. The Season 2 winner has sold more albums than any other African American contestant in Idol history. Studdard's debut album, Soulful, bowed at #1 with first-week sales of 417,000 copies. It featured two top 10 hits, "Flying Without Wings" and "Sorry 2004." Studdard's sophomore album, the gospel-oriented I Need An Angel, hit #20. His third release, the R&B-focused The Return, hit #8.

With all the recent publicity surrounding his four-wheel abodes and upcoming album, J.D. Fortune apparently ended up in jail on Monday night, although the details won't be known in full until later this week.

"I would love to chat all night, unfortunately I am on my way to jail," Fortune wrote in a March 16 MySpace blog post entitled "Do not collect $200...."

"I swear I will post the evening's events along with the officer's comments about my new haircut during our demo listening party on Friday, March 20th at 8:00 PM EST.

"P.S. Jail sucks."

Lady GaGa = Britney Spears with a brain



Think of Lady GaGa as Britney Spears with a brain.

GaGa is a provocatively dressed, bleached blonde who makes irresistible, mindless dance music that packs clubs and the top of the pop charts. Her "Just Dance" bounded to No. 1 this winter, while "Poker Face" has risen to No. 3. Her debut CD, "The Fame," sits in the top 10, five months after its release.

While Spears cut her teeth in the Mickey Mouse Club, Stefani Germanotta studied at New York's exclusive Convent of the Sacred Heart (other alums: Paris Hilton, Caroline Kennedy, Gloria Vanderbilt) and NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Before a producer dubbed her Lady GaGa (after the Queen song "Radio GaGa") the piano-playing singer co-wrote tunes for Pussycat Dolls, Akon and Spears.

As GaGa makes her way to Minneapolis for a sold-out show Monday at the Fine Line, we caught up with the 22-year-old diva by phone in Portland, Ore.

She talked about her obsession with celebrity, style and fame:

Lindsay Lohan Spends Time With Another Sam



Lindsay Lohan traded a DJ for a singer on Saturday night, although both were named Sam.

Lilo took in an after-hours performance of singer Sam Sparro last night in Los Angeles, at Hollywood hotspot Bardot.

Arriving close to 1 a.m., Lohan rolled into the "Black and Gold," singer's intimate performance clad in black leggings (naturally) and a black top with a jeweled neckline.

"She looked gorgeous," an onlooker tells Celebuzz, "really thin but pretty. She had great energy."

Lindsay rocked out enthusiastically to the gay, Grammy-nominated vocalist, occasionally taking photos with her Blackberry.

After Sparro's six-song set, Lohan fetched a faded white t-shirt from her Chanel purse and ran to the bathroom, telling friends she was hot, according to our source.

She returned soon after (accessorizing the shirt with a black shoestring belt) and chatted up Sparro and his band.

"Lindsay was clearly impressed, " the partygoer said, "she took everyone's number and stayed to chat and dance."

Absent was Lohan's mainstay gal pal Samantha Ronson.

Mischa Barton: 'Marriage Puts Pressure on Relationships'



Mischa Barton believes marriage puts "too much pressure" on a relationship.

The actress - who recently split from British rocker Luke Pritchard - insists she won't be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

She says, "I'm not a huge fan of marriage. It puts too much pressure on the relationship. People try harder until they're married and then you see a lot of relationships fall apart because it's the last step. There's nothing left.

"Whoever is going to be the father of my children I'll probably inevitably marry - but that's not on the cards any time soon."

The former O.C. star recently revealed that her perfect man is someone who is confident enough to flirt with her and can make her laugh.

"I have noticed that some men are scared of me because I have been on television. I have quite a few die hard fans," she said.

"I find men with confidence and a great sense of humor very attractive. Those are the two factors that matter the most."

Kanye West at South by Southwest, 3.21.09



SXSW review: Kanye West at Fader Fort

At 9:05 p.m. Saturday, Kanye West and his stable of G.O.O.D. Music artists descended upon the Levi’s/Fader Fort stage at 1101 E. Fifth St. for what would become a highlight of SXSW 2009.

If you had ever visited the Graphic Glass Studio on Fifth Street, you wouldn’t recognize it in its incarnation as the Levi’s/Fader Fort. All of the floor-to-ceiling “Sanford and Son”-type items in the warehouse had been removed for its transformation into a Levi’s store, complete with all the ambiance of a store from a high end shopping mall.

Likewise, West’s performance was something of a transformation, too. West was as good as he needed to be (many people had been waiting for him to play based on a rumor since the early afternoon), and it was better than it had to be (he killed for two hours). The show resembled one of those “cavalcade of stars” tours from the late 1950s/early 1960s: West would perform two or three of his hits, then he’d bring up one of his proteges from his G.O.O.D. Music record label imprint and share the stage or feature them outright. Although West (and his ego) are notorious for being his own worst enemy, he really reigned himself in Saturday night; he graciously played the role of a generous headliner and an excited mentor and label boss spotlighting his stable of artists in what was a marketing coup (for all parties involved).

“Amazing” from West’s most recent, most experimental work yet, “808s and Heartbreaks” started off his set with a pitch-perfect stomp, pricking up ears with its modern-yet-tribal groove and maxed-out Auto-Tune vocals.

David Cook fans being douchey

David Cook was in Atlantic City performing last night when he randomly mentioned David Archuleta. being the classy people that they are, his fans started booing. and Cook, being the greatest boyfriend ever, defended him.



SRSLY? WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU BOO A CLOSE FRIEND OF HIS?


haha! more confirmation that his fans are nuts, from his own myspace...

ATTENTION!
Hey everyone,
First off, I want to say thank you to everyone who has been coming out to the shows since my last post. The vibe at these shows has been amazing.

Secondly, I have to address some behavior that has become disturbing. We pride ourselves on being accessible to you as fans, but in contrast, we do enjoy what little privacy we can muster. To that end, the efforts by some fans to find our hotel rooms, call our hotel rooms, attach things to our bus, etc., is something I have to condemn. This relationship only works when it remains healthy for both parties, and should this behavior continue, the only thing we can do is take more preventative measures to maintain our privacy, which in turn makes us less accessible to you.

I hope this doesn't come off as harsh. I merely want to nip this in the bud so we can continue to have a great experience with all of you at the shows we have coming up. Take care and see you at the next show.

Battlestar Galactica questions answered



Unhappy with the way BSG ended? Ron Moore answers questions...

TVGuide.com: The writers started deciding a year ago what would happen in the finale. How long ago did you structure the way you wanted the finale to be written — how much would be battle scenes and how much would be the resolution on the new Earth?
Ron Moore:
[By the midpoint of the season] we had revealed the origins of the final five, we had found the original Earth, we had dealt with all the backstories of people... there was a laundry list of things that were out of the way. Then it became about, what do we do in the finale and we started focusing on what is the story? What is the plot? It was clear it would be a rescue mission of Hera. Then we kind of got blacked out on the details of the assault, and what was the trick, and where were they going to jump in, and who was on what assault force — and this became very frustrating and annoying.

DWTS celebs get $200,000 for the whole season.



Reality Shows Pay With Resuscitated Careers

By Andrew Gumbel - The Wrap | Thursday, March 19, 2009, 5:45 PM

 

Not so long ago, reality TV was the last place any self-respecting celebrity would wish to end up.

 

Now, though, the famous -- and almost-famous -- are lining round the block to get on the most popular shows, like "Dancing With the Stars" or "Celebrity Apprentice." And it isn't for the money.

 

Stars on a multi-character scripted drama can make upwards of $50,000 an episode - sometimes way upward. On reality shows, celebrities get what is referred to as Most Favored Nation status -- which means nobody gets more than anybody else. The celebs on "Dancing With the Stars," for example, get $200,000 for the entire season, [See celebrity reality TV payments on The Wrap] whether they're booted or not, a bonus of $100,00 if they're number one, a smaller bonus if they're number two, an even smaller bonus if they're number 3, a top TV agent told The Wrap.

 

So Marie Osmond made what Emmitt Smith made, what Cloris Leachman made, what Belinda Carlisle made this season -- and she was the first celeb booted off.

Robert Pattinson eyes duet with Will Young



Robert Pattinson would love to let his tunes mingle with those of Brit singer Will Young.

The 22-year-old, best known for playing Edward Cullen in the film adaptation of ‘Twilight’, had previously revealed that he had music as a plan B should his acting career fail.

The Hottest Male Movie Vampire, who had two of his compositions in the hit vampire movie, now says that he would not think twice about a duet with Young.

“Will has a great voice and it would blend really well with mine but I bet he has no idea who I am. But you never know,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Meanwhile, the Hollywood heartthrob, who is set to reprise his blood-sucking role opposite Kristen Stewart’s Bella in ‘New Moon’, is looking forward to put an end to their onscreen relationship in the sequel. (ANI)

Natasha Richardson laid to rest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


LITHGOW, N.Y. (AP) — A somber group of friends and family gathered in a small Hudson Valley town Sunday to say a final farewell to Tony Award-winning actress Natasha Richardson.

Liam Neeson, in a dark suit and sunglasses, was among the pallbearers who carried his wife's coffin into St. Peter's Episcopal Church, near the home where the two married in 1994.

He arrived at the tiny white clapboard church with the couple's sons; his mother-in-law, actress Vanessa Redgrave, and his sister-in-law, actress Joely Richardson. Also among the mourners were Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman and Laura Linney.

The 45-year-old actress was buried in a nearby cemetery, amid hilly horse farms about 80 miles north of New York City.

Richardson died Wednesday at a Manhattan hospital after falling while skiing Monday at the Mont Tremblant resort in the Canadian province of Quebec. The New York City medical examiner's office said Richardson suffered from an epidural hematoma, which causes bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering. She was not wearing a helmet.

Richardson married Neeson at their secluded Millbrook, N.Y., home in 1994.

Neeson spent a grim Friday greeting a stream of friends and relatives during a private viewing at the American Irish Historical Society in Manhattan. Celebrities paying respects included Diane Sawyer, Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

MIley on the cover of Billboard



Miley Cyrus is attempting to teach an adult the Hoedown Throwdown, the big dance number from "Hannah Montana: The Movie," and it's not going well. "We did it in one day!" she gasps, as I tell her how I've flailed through the YouTube instructional video. "We just all kind of made it up as we went along." It doesn't help that Cyrus offers this consolation and advice over the phone while I'm trying to follow along on YouTube—and untangle myself from my phone cord.

"Well," she patiently explains, "you have to be semi-coordinated to do it."


Then it dawns on me that this is exactly how Cyrus' legion of preteen female fans is learning the dance: YouTube onscreen, phone to ear, someone on phone offering encouragement amid occasional peals of laughter.

she looks so cute, ilh

Do American Idol Contestants Lip-Sync?



Is it live or is it Memorex? That is the question that's been plaguing American Idol fans' curious little minds these days when it comes to the group performances at the beginning of the elimination show. Ever notice how sometimes what you see in those performances doesn't exactly match what you're hearing? Kind of made us go "hmmmm."

Well, we got the answer from an Idol source who tells us, "They do prerecord the chorus stuff. And they sing live their solos and sing over the track on live TV with the band playing live as well."

That's what a set source assures us, but wait until you read how Justin Guarini, runner-up from Idol's first season, explained those performances on Friday?

When talking about the group numbers, Justin said on TV Guide Network's Idol Wrap, the weekly recap show he cohosts with Kimberly Caldwell, this: "Every single year, we cannot stand the group performances. I know they can't stand it either. And I think what makes [the group performances] even worse now is that they're lip-synced. They're really prerecorded now."

Thanks for the dirt Justin! Really, thanks! Finally, someone said it.

Justin continued, "And you see them kind of do this with the microphone [he pretends to hold a mike away from his mouth] and they're not even holding it to their face and they're laughing.?

But don't get him wrong. He thinks it's, as Martha Stewart would say, a good thing. I think it's good because you know what? It's one less thing to have to sing, one less thing to have to memorize, and it's done during the week. They don't have to worry about it.?

What do you guys think of this? Fire away below.

i knew the mixes with this season's group numbers sounds way too good to be live, it sounds very produced. it's obvious they're lipped.

Talk... like... William Shatner... Day



First it was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Now someone is trying to start a new web fad - International Talk Like William Shatner Day.

Maurice LaMarche, who calls himself the third most prominent William Shatner impressionist, has posted a video clip on YouTube declaring March 22 as International Talk like William Shatner Day.

William Shatner is an actor who achieved worldwide fame on the cult sci-fi series Star Trek, and his unique style of speaking has produced countless parodies. March 22 is his birthday.

In the YouTube clip, LaMarche shows viewers how to talk like Shatner, including awkward pausing and pronouncing "you" as though you're "about to gag".

LaMarche is a well-known voice actor who has performed in many TV shows and movies, including Futurama and Animaniacs.

The internet has been the driving force behind the global spread of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which encourages people to say "arrr" and "avast" like a true salty sea dog every September 19.

Only time will tell if Talk Like William Shatner Day will have achieve the same fame.

Rachel McAdams's 5 Most Influential Books



My mom always took us to the library when we were kids, maybe to get rid of us for a little while, but I loved it. I travel a lot now, and I have a couple of library cards depending on which city I'm in. I love getting lost in the stacks; I like to meander and let things take my attention. That's the way my mind works.
I'm one of those readers who have six books going at a time, which is why I prefer nonfiction. It's so much easier to jump in and out of. I would never say I've given up on a book..the bookmark is still there..(although I hate to say I did give up on Moby-Dick and I felt really bad about it).
One of the ways I know I've got a great book is when I begin to cry. I just become a weeping mess. I love books where you can't get out of bed. You want to consume them in one sitting, devour them. Those are my favorites, where you've almost abandoned your life for them. That doesn't happen every time, but those are the best.

Winnie Cooper got married ... but not to Kevin Arnold

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Wonder Years's Winnie Cooper is all grown up.

Danica McKellar, a mathematician and actress who played the beloved character on the hit TV show, has tied the knot with composer Mike Verta, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

McKellar, 34, and Verta, 36, exchanged vows in an ocean-side church at sunset in La Jolla, Calif., in front of 150 guests, including the bride's sister and maid of honor, Crystal McKella, who played Becky Slater on The Wonder Years.

Also present were actors Dan Lauria and Allie Mills, who portrayed Kevin's (played by Fred Savage) parents on the show.

The bride wore a mermaid-style wedding gown and a tiara by Renee Strauss while the groom wore a tuxedo with tails and white gloves.

"We wanted an intimate, formal event," says McKellar, who walked down the aisle to wedding music composed by Verta and performed by members of the San Diego Symphony.

A reception followed at a private club, where guests enjoyed a sitdown dinner and dancing to a 10-piece band. The newlyweds danced their first dance to an original Sinatra-style love song written by Verta and performed by McKellar's uncle, Kim McCellar.

The couple started dating in 2001 and got engaged last August in Chicago.

McKellar, who graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a BS in mathematics in 1998, is the author of two books: Math Doesn't Suck and Kiss My Math. She has also appeared on many other television shows including The West Wing.

Verta is an accomplished music composer for film and television. He also came up with the titles and designed the covers for both of McKellar's bestselling books.

Reality Shows Pay With Rescuscitated Careers

Not so long ago, reality TV was the last place any self-respecting celebrity would wish to end up.

Now, though, the famous -- and almost-famous -- are lining round the block to get on the most popular shows, like "Dancing With the Stars" or "Celebrity Apprentice." And it isn't for the money.

Stars on a multi-character scripted drama can make upwards of $50,000 an episode – sometimes way upward. On reality shows, celebrities get what is referred to as Most Favored Nation status -- which means nobody gets more than anybody else. The celebs on "Dancing With the Stars," for example, get $200,000 for the entire season, whether they're booted or not, a bonus of $100,00 if they're number one, a smaller bonus if they're number two, an even smaller bonus if they're number 3, a top TV agent told The Wrap.

So Marie Osmond made what Emmitt Smith made, what Cloris Leachman made, what Belinda Carlisle made this season -- and she was the first celeb booted off.

Of course, every reality show is different. A celebrity with a show built around his or her life is likely to get producer credit and maybe something on the back end. Participants on an existing show generally get a flat fee without residuals.

"Between scripted shows and reality shows," said a leading TV agent, "in the success scenario there's just no comparison -- and that's the way it should be. On scripted shows, they have to have talent."

But, in Hollywood, there's always more than money. Especially former celebrities are sniffing out any opportunity to put themselves on the map -- or sell themselves in a different guise to a whole new generation of fans.

"It's all about the endorsements and other appearances. There's a lot of heat coming off that show," the TV agent said.

Lauren Conrad has gone from nobody to television mega-celebrity by committing her young adult life to video on the MTV series "Laguna Beach" and its follow-up "The Hills." No longer simply an aspiring fashion designer, she has launched her own clothing line on the back of her cable network visibility.

Her fellow cast members Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port have similarly diversified into music, film acting, fashion design, earning themselves millions of dollars in the process.

I think it's kind of sick how much these reality show starlets make just to live their lives, tbh. And I didn't know that celebs made money by being on Dancing with the Stars... I thought the money they got was to donate to some charity or something. Weird.

Sir JDM Hated Watchmen Costume



Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan didn't have to dig too deep to play a twisted and psychotic crimebuster in the hit action movie - his uncomfortable costume made him feel like killing someone.

The Grey's Anatomy star plays The Comedian in the new movie and admits he hated the outfit he had to wear to bring his character to life.

He tells WENN, "You quickly realise it's gonna really take six hours to put this costume on every day. So I'd come out of the costume and I'd be ready to kick somebody's ass, because it's such a long painful process. It's hard to move, it's sweaty, squeaky.

"There was always something but ultimately it helped so much to turn myself into the character. A lot of it had to do with the costume. He's (Comedian) a very sad soul. There's more to him than just this brutal bastard of a man. It was hard to shake Comedian at the end of the day. There were days when I went home and thought, 'What did I just do?' because he was just so sad."

Then you should have taken it off, bb. Onscreen. Very slowly. So we could make .gifs. (And I know it's usually just "Sir" or "JDM" individually, but I thought this way he sounded like a knight or something.)

Did Zac Efron drop out of Footloose?

The rumors are flying!



From thewrap.com:

Zac Efron wants to be fancy free, but apparently not footloose.

The teen-throb star of Disney’s first three “High School Musical” films, has pulled out of Paramount’s planned remake of “Footloose,” in an apparent effort to stretch his career beyond fame as just a cute song-and-dance man.

Efron told the studio last week that he did not want to do another musical at this point in his career, according to a senior member of the production team.

The team member told TheWrap that Efron had script approval on the movie and used a rewrite on the screenplay as the loophole to get out of his contract: “People had been working on this project since last July -- we were all shocked.”

A Paramount spokesman could not immediately be reached for confirmation.


Collapse )

My thoughts:
1) One is this really true? The article says filming was to happen in Atlanta, which is totally different than the two other more plausible locations we've heard more substantial rumors of (Lehi, Utah or Toronto). Hopefully Zefron will comment while on his 17 Again press tour.

2) Creative issues seem to be plaguing the script, so this project might be better off, at the very least, being postponed. They've been trying to make a script work for a long time and Zac has stated he doesn't want to rush into it just to get it out and make a buck. This seems contrary to the studio's plans as they've already set up release dates.

3) I don't blame Zac for wanting not to do another musical at this point. But if they can't come to a consensus on a script then it is unfairly tying up his schedule, no matter how much he may want to stick with it. This isn't just Paramount he had a commitment to but to his friend Kenny Ortega as well.

Most zefron fangirls I know are ecstatic that this project might finally be dead (or at least postponed indefinitely). This despite how much we love Scream, lol. So idk? I just hope, if this is true, that it was handled well... I don't want Zefron to suffer from Aquaman 2 syndrome.
