Australia thanks you for your time
In Hollywood, everybody and their pool boy wants to direct. So it's no surprise that Scarlett Johansson has the itch to get behind the lens. Especially since she's been hanging around with Woody Allen.
But apparently talent doesn't transfer by osmosis, because Johansson has been bounced from her directorial debut, a segment of the multidirector movie New York, I Love You (which does include sections by Natalie Portman and Bret Ratner). But Johansson's segment starring Kevin Bacon reportedly "was really bad, so it was cut."
This means, this is the only single by Girls Aloud that has missed the top 10 positioning in its first week of sales.
However the Girls still hold the record for 20 Top 10 hit singles.
Untouchable still sold really well considering they could not promote it on TV like they always do, as they are busy with their sell out tour.
Cheryl Cole has reportedly been offered a £2million “golden handcuffs” deal with ITV.
According to the News of the World, the star’s £820,000 salary as a judge on The X Factor is set to rise to £1.1million next year and she has also been offered another £1million to host other prime-time shows.
A source at the channel told the newspaper: “This is an enormous coup for ITV.
“Cheryl has major appeal across ages and genders for her beauty and down-to-earth personality.
“Times are tough in telly land like everywhere else. But the option of bringing someone of Cheryl’s calibre into the station is too good to pass up.”
“They’re discussing whether Cheryl should host a chat show. But they also know the void left by Cilla Black’s in light entertainment has never really been filled.
“Basically, they want her to become the Queen Of ITV.”
Cheryl first rose to fame on the channel’s Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, which saw her win her spot in the girl group. She returned to the small screen last year to public and critial acclaim when she stepped in as a last minute replacement for Sharon Osbourne on the singing talent show.
Im kind of disappointed in them. Its not like it missed out on the top10 because their career is doing poorly. All they had to do was give it some more promotion!
“He took a turn for the worse this weekend and David rushed to get home.”A family friend told RadarOnline “Adam passed away peacefully.” Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
“He was surrounded by his family, including his wife Kendra, his children, his father and his step-mom, among others.”
No doubt, MTV will do anything to get Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to its upcoming Movie Awards.
We’re sure Brangelina will receive many nominations (remember this past year included Jolie in Wanted, Changeling and Kung Fu Panda along with Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Burn After Reading), but for now we know of at least one so far for Ms. Jolie.
My peeps at MTV tell me that this year’s 18th annual awards, which will be handed out on May 31 and telecast live from L.A.’s Gibson Amphitheatre, will include a new category: Best WTF Moment.
Angelina Jolie: Wanted, Curved Bullet Kill
Amy Poehler: Baby Mama, Peeing In the Sink
Ayush Mahesh Khedekar: Slumdog Millionaire, Jumping in the Poop Shed
Ben Stiller: Tropic Thunder, Tasting the Decapitated Head
Jason Segel and Kristen Bell: Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Naked Break-UpWe say Ayush from Slumdog should take home the Golden Popcorn. Do you agree? Let us know what you think.
Turns out all that hoopla about breakup of the marriage of rocker PinkWhy is it that "open marriages" are almost always between two ugly people? I mean seriously, if you don't find your significant other hot enough to bang, who else is? These two should just suck it up and do what the rest of society does when they're in a relationship that they don't like:
and her motorcross star hubby, Carey Hart, was a bit exaggerated.
Seems the couple never got around to filing for divorce.
Anyway, now they're back together, but have apparently worked out what
the couple is calling an "open marriage" deal. According to a member
of Pink's team, it's "kind of like the marriage that Dolly Parton has
with her husband ... and that's lasted for decades."

Jay admitted that he doesn't use Twitter, but he managed to post a blog for RapRadar.com following his performance Thursday evening at the University of Arizona. The MC said he was caught up in the excitement of the moment, as well as the technical difficulties, and he missed the opportunity to say something important.
"On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson ... I thought that had to be the oddest pairing ever, but soon realized it's what I've always professed. There's NO such thing as Black music or White music only Good or Bad music."
Jay said it was cool to like different things that are outside of your comfort zone. He said this also applies to the world around us and not just music.
"If you're African American you can have a Jewish friend." He brought up his own friendship with former Def Jam head/ current Warner Music CEO Lyor Cohen. "The Jew fro and the BLUEprint fro [Afro] are the SAME thing."
Jay added that he would like to see diverse concerts such as this happen more often, outside of the one or two festivals per year and big radio station summer concerts like Zootopia, held by New York's Z-100, among many others.
"I'm putting that into the universe," Jay blogged, adding, "Next up, [a concert with] Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!"Source
Production on The Real World Cancun in Mexico has not shut down because of swine flu, which has impacted MTV stars Heidi and Spencer. But the cast is back in the United States having completed production, according to messages on at least two of their MySpace pages, as both the cast members and their Cancun home have been revealed.
The swine flu shut-down reports came on the always-credible sites Radar Online and Perez Hilton. Citing zero sources (who has time to do reporting when you’re drawing on photographs?), Perez said “has been shut down in the wake of the Swine Flu outbreak in Mexico” on April 17, while Radar pulled their story that said it “learned exclusively that production on The Real World: Cancun has been shut down, and its seven young cast members have been removed from the Mexican coastal city—all for fear of deadly Swine Flu.” As part of a later story, Radar modified the claim, saying “that MTV reality staple The Real World wrapped the filming on their 22nd season on April 17 in Cancun.”
But production company Bunim-Murray has denied that via its Twitter account, posting twice: first that “@PerezHilton swine flu may be the new susan boyle, but your RW Cancun post is as false as her teeth” and later that “reports from #perezhilton about #RW Cancun shutting down due to swine flu are 100% untrue!”
Meanwhile, Vevmo has pictures and names of the eight—the show is apparently sticking with the larger group—cast members: Ayiiia Elizarraras (a model), Bronne Bruzgo, Christian “CJ” Koegel, Emilee Fitzpatrick, Jasmine Reynaud, Jonna Mannion (who may have appeared on Discovery’s Endurance), Joey Rozmus, and Derek Chavez. Vevmo also has links to their MySpace pages, several of which both confirm they were cast and have returned to the states, although others are now marked as private.
Finally, Jaunted reported that the cast lived in the ME Cancun hotel “in some of the hotel’s Level Suites which includes the Passion Suite and its bed on a terrace.” That’s a familiar location to those who saw The Real World Hollywood, as the cast vacationed there. When the location was announced, we learned that the cast would work for travel web site StudentCity.com—or, you know, doing whatever pretend work they do between drunken orgies on the beach.Source
