7 New Movie Clips from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Warner Bros. has just released seven new movie clips from “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and they’re after the jump. This is on top of the 2 they released the other day.

Since I’ve already raved about the new “Potter” film, I don’t know what else to say except watch some of the clips and see for yourself what might be the best of the series. While I’d love to say it’s definitely the best one, that can only come from watching the film a few times and giving it some space. But it’s definitely one of my favorites, and I’m sure it will be one of yours as well.

Britney Spears Taking Diet Pills Before Performances

Is life on the road getting to Britney Spears?

A family insider says Britney was caught by her conservator/dad Jamie Spears popping over-the-counter diet pills and washing them down with Red Bull before a performance on her Circus tour, reports gossip site Betty Confidential.

“Britney was definitely trying to get high by taking too many diet pills and energy drinks,” the source told the site. “Jamie thinks the combination of the two is making her whacked-out and, causing her to lash out in weird angry rampages.”

But that's not all. The insider said “Britney uses green-tea supplements, [Lab 88’s herbal ephedra-free] Metabo Speed XXX, Dexatrim and apple cider vinegar to control her weight and energy levels. She also pours those 5-Hour energy drinks into her Red Bulls," according to the site.

Spears, 26, has done several stints in rehab facilities, and is currently not in charge of her own affairs, with a judge granting conservatoriship of her finances to her father, and custody of her two children to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Spears has recently been linked romantically to her agent Jason Trawick.


Religious group to protest Madonna concert in Poland

A Polish religious group is trying to stop Madonna from performing a sold out concert in Warsaw.

The Committee for the Defence of the Faith and Tradition is protesting the Material Girl’s plans to play her first ever concert in Poland. The event, set for August 15, falls on a holy day for the Virgin Mary that is regularly observed by Roman Catholics in the country.

The Committee vows to carry on its “crusade” against all things Madge.

“We’re going to continue our crusade with daily prayer sessions outside Warsaw city hall from August 1,” said Marian Brudzynski, head of the Committee. “We’ll start with a group of a few hundred people but I’m convinced that the square in front of city hall will end up filled with pious Poles.”

The group is asking Warsaw’s city hall to block the sold out event, which is expected to draw more than 70,000 fans.


Mischa Barton 'Turns To Booze' After Failed Romances

Mischa Barton's concerned pals have begged her to take care of her body after recent booze binges have left her bloated and unhappy, according to reports.

New photos of Barton with a fuller face hit the tabloids last month, prompting speculation the star's turbulent love life was causing her to overindulge in food and alcohol.

The paparazzi snaps were in stark contrast to her appearance in January, when she sparked fears for her health after turning up to a fashion show looking gaunt.

And the actress' close circle fear her string of failed romances with a slew of rockers have left her craving wild nights out to battle her depression, according to Britain's Closer magazine.

A source tells the publication, "When her love life is out of sorts she just lets herself go and hits the party scene.

"Her friends try to tell her to stop but she doesn't listen. Drinking bloats her terribly.

"After clubbing she'll usually tuck into greasy fast food. She'll starve herself all day then binge on junk. It wreaks havoc with her system."


Michael Jackson’s bbs goofed around with their cousins at the reception


Prince Michael, 12, 11-year-old Paris – who paid an emotional tribute to her father at the service yesterday (07.07.09) – and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as ‘Blanket’, were seated at a VIP table with 12 other children in The Grand Ballroom at Beverly Hills’ Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

According to reports, the trio were sitting with cousins ranging in age from seven to 17, and spent much of the reception “playing and goofing around” and at one point gathered to look at the memorial programme, which featured pictures of Michael.

Us Weekly magazine reported: “Blanket appeared playful at the reception, tickling his cousins and tapping others on the shoulder and then running away.”

The trio’s former nanny Grace Rwaramba – who was rumoured to have been in a relationship with the late ‘Thriller’ singer – was heard saying: “The kids are holding up really well. It’s good for them to be around the other kids.”

The youngsters were “polite and poised” as a string of well-wishers came to their table to offer their condolences for the loss of their father, who died aged 50 after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest last month.

A host of famous faces attended the reception, including Corey Feldman – who attended the earlier memorial dressed as Michael – Usher, Wesley Snipes, Mariah Carey, Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee and ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Anil Kapoor.

Brooke Shields – who paid tribute to her friend Michael at the service – was also present, but seemed quiet and emotional.

Michael’s parents Joe and Katherine spent time with Brooke, while Joe was also seen in conversation with Corey – who was estranged from the ‘Smooth Criminal’ singer at the time of his death.

Katherine – who is the temporary guardian of Michael’s children – left with Prince, Paris and ‘Blanket’.

Pelosi Shoots Down Jackson Resolution

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee promised fans she'd get a resolution passed in Congress honoring Michael Jackson -- but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just 86'd the proposal.

In a news conference moments ago on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said that while Jackson was "a great performer," a resolution "will open up two contrary views that are not necessary at this time to be expressed."

Somewhere Rep. Pete King is doing a righteous fist pump.

Rihanna’s Friends: “She’s Been A Nervous Wreck For Weeks”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Supposed friends of Rihanna say that the situation with Chris Brown in which he was sentenced 180 days of community labor for assaulting her, has been hard on the songbird. Chris has been given five years of probation and is not permitted to be within 50 yards of her [10 yards on events]. This has reportedly made Rihanna quite unhappy.

A source tells Now magazine, “It’s so hard for her. She knows her family would freak out if she told them she wants to get back with Chris, so she has to hide her feelings.”

The source also says that Rihanna was absolutely terrified to testify against Brown, “She’s been a nervous wreck for weeks as she was so terrified that Chris would hate her after she testified. Whenever she starts crying, she has to pretend that she’s been having flashbacks to the attacks. But it isn’t that. It’s because she misses him and can’t believe it came to this after everything they had going. She’s mad at him, but at the same time she blames herself.”

According to the source, the nerves were uncontrollable before the trial, “She couldn’t eat in the days before the trial. Her stomach was in knots and she was shaking. Whenever I see her out, she always has a drink in her hand – mostly champagne, but sometimes beer or shots. She’s in pain and is trying to numb it out to the best of her ability.”


Another update on jailed American journalists in N. Korea

One of the two US reporters jailed in North Korea made a telephone call to her US-based sister, Lisa Ling said in an interview broadcast on Thursday.

"It was a tremendous relief to hear Laura's voice last night," Lisa Ling told CNN affiliate KOVR in California.

"It was only the first time I have heard her voice in weeks," she said, adding the call was made late Tuesday.

"That silence has been just so terrifying and deafening."

Border guards detained American TV reporters Laura Ling and Euna Lee on March 17 along the frontier with China while they were researching a story about refugees fleeing North Korea.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Three Week Juice Diet "Worked Wonders"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Gwyneth Paltrow is slimmer thanks to a mostly juice detox diet she followed for three weeks.

"I feel pure and happy and much lighter," the actress writes in her GOOP newsletter. "I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious 'relax and enjoy life phase' about a month ago."

Paltrow goes on: "This program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox."

(Pal Mario Batali once told Us Paltrow hits the gym three hours a day.)

New York-based cardiologist Dr. Alejandro Junger explains the "Clean" detox works by cutting out most food and "reducing digestive work so detox can occur in full mode. The Clean Program eases digestion by providing two liquid meals a day and a solid one in between, eliminating allergenic and mucus-forming food, which frees up even more energy," the doctor writes.

"This program allowed I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders," Paltrow says. "This thing is amazing."

Rosanne Cash Honors Late Father With Springsteen, Dylan



and many othe awesome people

Rosanne Cash will honor her late father, Johnny Cash, with her upcoming album 'The List,' in October. The singer explains that the 12 songs are all tunes off a list of "100 Essential Country Songs" that her dad gave her back in 1973.

Rosanne puts her own unique signature on each of the 12 songs included on the new project. Among the tunes she picked are Jimmie Rodgers' 'Miss the Mississippi and You,' Hank Snow's 'I'm Movin' On,' Bobby Bare's '500 Miles' and Bob Dylan's 'Girl From the North Country.' Also included are duets with Bruce Springsteen ('Heartbreak Hotel'), Elvis Costello ('Heartaches by the Number') Jeff Tweedy ('Long Black Veil') and Rufus Wainwright ('Silver Wings').

Johnny presented his then 18-year-old daughter with the list of songs after he became alarmed that she might not have the deep understanding of country music that he would like her to have. He came to this conclusion after noticing that she was obsessed with the Beatles and loved Southern California rock and pop music.

"I looked to that list as a standard of excellence, and to remind myself of the tradition from which I come," Rosanne says in a statement. "This album enables me to validate the connection to my heritage rather than run away from it, and to tie all the threads together: past and future, legacy and youth, tradition the timelessness."

Rosanne's 'The List' is her 12th studio album. It is the first she has recorded since she underwent surgery in 2007 for a benign brain condition, from which she has fully recovered.

"If my father had been a martial arts master, he might have passed a martial arts secret on to me, his oldest child," Cash says. "If he had been a surgeon, he might have taken me into his operating room and pointed out the arteries and organs. If he were a robber baron, he might have surveyed his empire and said, 'Honey, some day this will all be yours!' But he was a musician and a songwriter, and he gave me the List."

'The List' will be released on Manhattan Records on October 6th.

Pete Doherty 'must face questioning,' says mom of dead actor

Brit singer Pete Doherty may face police questioning in connection with the death of an actor who plunged to his death after a row with him.

Sheila Blanco’s son Mark, 30, had died after he fell from the first floor of a flat in Whitechapel, east London. Just before his death in December 2006, Mark had had a confrontation with Doherty, 30, and two others, and now his mother has said that the singer “must face questioning”.

According to the police, Blanco’s son had killed himself trying to jump to a lamppost. But a coroner has now ordered the Met to reopen its investigation. “I want the truth to come out,” the Daily Star quoted Blanco, who is raising cash for her own inquiry, as saying.

Doherty’s spokesman said that the verdict given previously by the police was right. “The conclusion the police came to initially is the correct one,” he said.

“We have heard nothing about the conclusion of the second investigation, so are unable to comment further at this stage,”
he added.

NASCAR’s Matt Kenseth and wife Katie have welcomed a daughter! Kaylin Nicola Kenseth was born July 6 in North Carolina.

“Mom and baby are doing fine!” reports the driver on his website.

Katie’s pregnancy was announced last month with Matt stating that they did not want to learn the sex of the baby: “There aren’t many surprises left in life, so we’re going to wait to find out.”

Kaylin joins Matt’s 16-year-old son, Ross, from a previous relationship.

Matt and Katie have been married for eight years.

Heidi Pratt's Newest Role: Fitness Guru

Heidi Pratt is definitely proud of her figure, flaunting it in string bikinis at the beach and even doing "some nudity," for September's Playboy cover. Now, The Hills star has plans to share her fitness secrets in The Heidi Workout.

"Staying fit is something I'm really passionate about," Pratt, who changed her last name from Montag after marrying Spencer Pratt, tells PEOPLE. "I work out with a strength-and-conditioning coach 90 minutes a day, five days a week"

Now she's planning to share the specifics of her routine of "full-body, intense resistance exercises" in a new downloadable workout series developed with trainer Chad Waterbury.

The series features full-body conditioning exercises executed as rapidly as possible, "so you burn fat faster," says Waterbury, who does both light and heavy weights (think 75-lb. kettlebells!) with Pratt to give her body "a hard look with a feminine shape."

The Heidi Workout will also offer nutritional advice based on guidelines Waterbury gave to the 22-year-old TV star. She avoids all "white" foods like carbs, but fills up instead on lean meats including grass-fed beef – ("Heidi loves steak!" Waterbury says) – and green vegetables, apples and berries. "Heidi has a really healthy appetite," Waterbury adds. "There's no way she is going to deprive herself."

Not that Pratt wanted to lose weight in the first place. Instead, the 5'1", 100-lb. reality star wanted to put on curves. "When she came to me her butt was really flat and she wanted to make it bigger," says Waterbury. "Now, it's nice, shapely and round."

And a major confidence-booster. "She loves showing off her body now," says Waterbury. "She called me from her Playboy shoot and was so excited. The photographers were raving about her."

The Real World continues to cast douchebags

This one happens to be a gay douchebag. In a new interview, Derek, the 21-year-old from Arizona, talks about his time on the Real World Cancun and it's almost painful. I cut a few of the douche-iest parts:

Was it weird putting your life on hold to go on this crazy adventure?
Yeah, because I’m the kind of person that once I start something I don’t want to stop until it’s done. As soon as high school was done I started college. I haven’t really had any breaks to myself and I was like, “If anything, this is going to better my life in a lot of aspects, it’s going to open a lot of opportunities for me, I’m going to meet people out of this, and it’s going to be a crazy ride.” Say The Real World ended in a couple more seasons, that’s like what -- almost 200 people who got to experience something like this? -- some 200 people out of the entire nation, so, to be one of them is amazing.

[Really? As soon as high school was done you started college? How unusual! No one does that! Way to be committed to getting things done!]

The Real World has a long history of having queer people on the show. Did you feel like you were the token queer cast member?
Of course they have had LGBT members in the past, so when they actually picked me I was like, “Oh, I’m the gay guy I guess -- that’s what’s going to be my storyline.” I suspected I would go into this situation with someone who was ignorant and someone who was never really around gay people. So I was like, that’s going to be my worst enemy. But, coming into the house with open arms from everyone made it a lot easier. As described by my roommates, they were like, “Dude, you’re the coolest gay we’ve ever met,” because I’m not the stereotypical gay guy. I actually like to go to straight bars and I like to go to straight things more than I like to go to gay clubs and stuff. I enjoy playing sports and physical sports. I like going to sports games and stuff. So, I’m not your typical like flamboyant gay at all.

[You like "going to sports games and stuff"? Wow. So butch. :: pukes :: Try looking up "internalized homophobia" in the dictionary sometime]

Eric Dane and Bradley Cooper to play gay lovers in a romantic comedy?


Grey's Anatomy
's hunky docs Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane will costar on the big-screen. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety have independently reported that Dempsey and Dane, respectively, have joined director Garry Marshall's ensemble comedy Valentine's Day. Dane will play a Brett Favre-esque quarterback, and Dempsey will play a cheating doctor in this collection of intersecting romances, alongside Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts and Hector Elizondo.

There's no mention of Dane playing gay in this press release but

May 11, 2009 Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper and Ashton Kutcher are in final negotiations to star in the movie, which has five slightly interconnecting stories playing out during a Valentine's Day in Los Angeles. -- Roberts is an army officer on leave from Iraq on a flight to L.A. Cooper, on the same flight, is a gay man whose lover is a closeted football player. -- Kutcher is an owner of a flower shop who proposes to his girlfriend (Alba), only to realize he is in love with his close friend, played by Garner, who discovers her boyfriend is married.

Based on this info it would lead one to assume that Dane is playing Bradley's closeted football lover. Sounds hot y/y?

Jay-Z, Diddy & Kanye Top Forbes “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” List

Jay-Z, Diddy and Kanye West topped Forbes’s annual list of hip-hop’s top earners. Dubbed Hip-Hop Cash Kings, the list, which was announced today, names the top 20 most financially successful rap artists over the last year, beginning in June 2008.

Topping the list, and stealing 50 Cent’s title from last year, is Brooklyn rap business mogul, who Forbes believes to have raked in $35 million since last June. Although down from last year’s reputed $82 million in earnings, Jay still managed to pull in millions in profits from his relentless world tour.

One notch down is fellow New York-bred entrepreneur Diddy with $30 million in estimated income. Along with his Sean John clothing line, Puff has been seeing returns from his partnership with Ciroc Vodka and MTV reality shows.

Entering the top three for the first time is Mr. Kanye West. The Chicago-bred superstar earned approximately $25 million over the last 12 months, due in large part to the success of his last album, 808s and Heartbreak, and subsequent Glow in the Dark tour. He also kept his bank account growing with his Nike and Louis Vuitton sneakers.

Emma Stone: Abigail Breslin is a 'Bad-Bum'

In an interview with ShockTillYouDrop.com, Emma Stone talks about her upcoming movie 'Zombieland,' and her on-screen sister, Abigail Breslin.

ShockTillYouDrop: Since Abby is not here for us to talk too, could you talk about how she's adjusting to all this action because it's kind of new to her as well.

Stone: I keep saying to her, because she has this jar where if you curse, you have to put a quarter in the jar, and I keep telling her she's a badass, and then going back and saying she's a "bad-bum" so I don't have to do the quarter. She's a badass, she really is. The girl can shoot a gun like no one's business. She loves it. She's ready to be in action movies for the rest of her life. She's awesome and totally just jumped right into it. I was at the shooting range. We had to learn in LA how to shoot, so Ruben [the director] and Abby and her mom and myself were at the shooting range, and it was Abby's first time shooting and I'd already shot. It was like, "It's going to be so cute to watch this twelve year old shoot." She picks up this shotgun and everybody's like, "Go Abby! It's gonna be great," and she's like, "Oh, I'm so nervous. Am I going to do it right?" and she shoots and she's like, "YES!" Boom! Boom! She was incredible immediately, and her mom goes, "I don't know whether to be excited or terrified." She's so good at shooting.

Shock: Does she actually carry a gun in the movie?

Stone: She does more than carry it. She uses it. She's pretty awesome.


I can't imagine this precious little girl

shooting a gun! The full interview with Stone is at the source, where she talks about the movie. She's so cute, and definitely one of my favorite twenty-something actresses right now. She was hilarious in "The House Bunny!" "Zombieland" looks like it's going to be good too. Here's the trailer for anyone who missed it before.

Affleck: 'Lopez Was Bad For My Career' 7/9

BEN AFFLECK has spoken out about his high-profile relationship with former girlfriend JENNIFER LOPEZ - insisting it was bad for his movie career.

The actor began dating the singer in 2002 after starring in Gigli with her, and the pair later became engaged before splitting up shortly before their scheduled wedding in 2004.
Affleck is adamant he should never have got involved in the first place - because the publicity surrounding their romance tainted his career.
He says, "I was no longer in control of my life. I thought I wanted certain things, but I didn't. I got lost. I felt suffocated, miserable and gross. I should never have gone down that route or got sucked in to all the publicity.

"I was typecast as myself. Too many people weren't getting past what they read about me. That was damaging. I can tell from experience it's bad for you, and bad for your career. So I took a break, went away for a while and let things calm down."
And he admits he is much happier with his wife Jennifer Garner and their two daughters, three-year-old Violet and six-month-old Seraphina to look after.
He adds, "Work has taken a back seat. My job is not as important as it was. Saying that having a family changed my life is a cliche. But it's true - it re-arranged my life and made me see clearly."


Thanksgiving will indeed happen

During an exclusive telephone interview to promote his role as Pvt. Donny Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino's WWII epic Inglourious Basterds, Eli Roth told Cinematical that Thanksgiving is not the next film he's set to direct, but it's definitely going to get made. "That movie, the financing, the money is in a bank account," Roth said. "I mean, I could literally say I'm starting production tomorrow we'd start. It's 100 percent up to me, but I'm just working on the script with Jeff Rendell, the co-writer. Jeff's the one who in the trailer, he plays the Pilgrim, and we're just writing it. We're just figuring it out and we're just coming up with the kills and the characters."

Well it was a Derek Blanks shoot. He does a lot of alter ego stuff. So we liked the idea of us showing the other side to Dawn and Que. Like the heavenly and devilish looks or the lustful and innocent side to us. The purest part of our love. It was easy because our love is REAL. We were just being ourselves. The kissing and deep looks is what we do on a normal basis. People don’t believe its real because we met on Making The Band but it is real. It’s impossible to fake how much we're in love.

Well you are pretty tatted up..
Yes I am, I love artwork. I like to be in my own world and express who I am. All my tattoos mean something to me and they all tie together in their own way. Some people get tattoos cause they look cool I get them because of my love for art.

Speaking of love and tattoos, whose lips are those on your neck?
I figured I would get Dawn's lips because she will be mine forever and I’m hers forever, so why not? It's the best example of how honest I am in my relationship and about our love. Her lips and her name is an example to others that it’s ok to love your girl. It’s an example on how to be honest. I actually got her name when we started getting serious , so I had that way before the lips on my neck. I’m sure there will be more tattoos to come.

With all the celebrity break ups and hook ups. What do you think makes your relationship different? Why did you decide to go public instead of hiding your relationship?
It is what it is. I have to be real with myself. Whatever is meant to happen will happen. But our relationship is built off of trust, honesty, and love. It’s definitely that fairytale ending that people don’t believe in anymore. There's no hiding that. There’s no point in fronting when you are happy.

How do you handle growing stardom and growing love all at once?
Work is work and play is play. Fortunately for us we work together so I get to do both.

What’s your advice to other young men your age still single and playing the field?
If you want to be a better person you have to “ be honest with yourself and it ‘s ok to be in love and be proud to love your girl”. You don’t have to cheat because people tell you it’s not cool to be with one person. If you’re happy, do you. When you love yourself others will see that in you and do the same. They have no choice but to respect it.

R-Pattz Feeling the Stress of Being in the Spotlight

Poor Robert Pattinson. Along with the great misfortune of being blessed with an extremely handsome face comes the great burden of dealing with utterly — and perhaps overly — devoted fans.

When R-Pattz first arrived in NYC in early June to start filming Remember Me, he planned to work hard at his craft by day and then seamlessly slink into the city’s nightlife without hassle. But low-key Rob didn’t count on his skyrocketing superstar status, or being followed at every turn by both fans and photographers. Insiders say the mounting pressures of fame are taking their toll on the sensitive screen vampire.

“It’s crazytown,” a source on the set tells OK!. “There are all these girls with a lot of hormones and a lot of time on their hands.”

Some of them leave their phone numbers on Rob’s car and trailer, like one that read, “I think we’re meant to be together. Call me.”

Still, the polite Brit is trying to be gracious to his fans.

“Rob’s a nice guy — he doesn’t want to disappoint people,” the security detailer says. “He stops to say hello when he can, but he just can’t do it a lot. People bring him gifts, but we can’t take them — we don’t know where they’ve come from.”

In a move to shield their leading man from the cameras and curiosity seekers, the Remember Me crew has stuck Rob in a box, constructing a 7-foot-high enclosure from material screens, where the actor retreats between takes. Not that the fan frenzy dies down when the day’s filming is done.

“I worked on Gossip Girl with guys like Penn Badgely,” says the on-set source. “We’d go out after work and play beer pong. Nobody would bother them. There’s no way Rob can do that. He’d be mobbed.”

Perhaps those who envy his devastating good looks and fame might heed this insider’s five simple — and sad — words to OK!: “I feel bad for him.”

Real Housewives' Jill Zarin Selling Posh NYC Pad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin is selling her three-bedroom New York City apartment featured on the hit Bravo reality show.

Price tag: $3.2 million.

The 1,956 square-foot pad - located on the Upper East side - comes complete with 3 1/2-bathrooms, soaring panoramic views with tremendous light, 10-foot coffered ceilings, shagreen inspired walls, chandeliers and state-of-the-art appliances, according to the Prudential Douglas Elliman listing. The full- service building also features a health club, roof deck, on-site parking and children's playroom.

The apartment was featured prominently on the Bravo show as Zarin feverishly remodeled it with help from her husband Bobby Zarin's firm, Zarin Fabrics, and her designer pal, Brad Boles. (It was also profiled in Traditional Home magazine.)

Pal Bethenny Frankel joked that, with all the decorations, remodelers must have taken hits of LSD while redoing the apartment.

But Zarin said on her website, "I know everyone does not love my apartment the way I do. Nor should you. Bobby and I love the apartment , including the POP tables I might add ( they grew on me!). We decorate everything for everyone's taste."

Harry Potter Covers Entertainment Weekly

This week’s Entertainment Weekly features the highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the film adapted from the sixth novel in J.K. Rowling’s seven-volume series, and speaks with the stars about Twilight, tossing their Hogwarts uniforms, and their careers.

Daniel Radcliffe knows exactly what he wants to do post-Harry. “I have come to the conclusion that I am never happier than when I am on a film set,” he says. “This is what I want to be doing. Totally. Absolutely. Unequivocally!”

For Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, their hardest scene was a kiss between their characters Ron and Hermione that shapes their destiny. “I remember being inches away from her lips and thinking, ‘Good lord, this is going to be strange,’” says Rupert. Adds Emma: “Rupert is like a brother to me, and our relationship couldn’t be more platonic. So kissing him – well, it felt like incest, to be honest. But I think it’s going to be very sweet.”

True Blood's Secret Love Triangle

It was love at first, um, bite for Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer after the British hunk aced his True Blood audition opposite the Oscar winner in early 2007, but they kept their instant attraction a secret from everyone, including his girlfriend of seven years — the mother of his young daughter, Lilac.

That September, Stephen told a British newspaper that his move from London to L.A. for the series had resulted in the end of his relationship with British journalist Lorien Haynes, saying: "Nobody has left anybody for anybody else." But those words ring hollow now that Stephen and Anna — who now live together — have admitted that sparks flew the moment they first met!

"We tried to stay professional for as long as we could," says Anna. "But it was unstoppable!”

Stephen's ex had never before spoken publicly about their breakup, but comments to Star about the situation in our July 20 issue — on sale today. And a friend of the actor weighs in on his friend's decision to leave Lorien.

“You can understand why he grabbed the opportunity to go to L.A. for True Blood and reach for a new level of stardom,” says the friend. "But Lorien is beautiful, brilliant and the mother of his daughter. Ending their relationship after seven years was a high price for Stephen to pay even if he and Anna seem happy together.”

PETA comments on Oscar Mayer's death...remains extremely classy while doing so...

PETA released this statement today in response to Oscar G. Mayer Jr's death.

In the wake of the death of Oscar G. Mayer, we are offering those at Kraft Foods our condolences and support during these difficult times. We understand that laying someone to rest is often a time when we try to find the silver lining to an otherwise gray cloud, and we can think of no better way to derive something positive from this death than by burying the Wienermobile along with Mr. Mayer.

The Wienermobile traverses the countryside and entices children to try Oscar Mayer meats, which can set them on the road to developing life-threatening illnesses. And while the late Oscar G. Mayer famously gave his meat a first name and a last name too—there are millions of cows who will never be given a name and will end up slaughtered—possibly for Kraft's B-O-L-O-G-N-A.

We have written to the people at Kraft Foods letting them know that while we are saddened by their loss, the burial of the Wienermobile with Mr. Mayer not only would give people a chance to pay their respects but also would spare children from future health complications and save millions of animals' lives.


Oscar was my great uncle (my father's uncle and my grandfather's brother). I shouldn't have been surprised that they would use his death as an excuse to further promote their cause, but it would have been appreciated if they had waited for the family to at least give him a proper burial.

Peaches Geldof studies Scientology

Now, Peaches Geldof does and says plenty of ridiculous things, but becoming a Scientologist just to improve her social life is surely taking ridiculous to a new level? Well, that’s the latest rumour doing the rounds.

Peaches interviewed Katie Holmes last year, and apparently has become totally smitten with the actress, reveals a pal of the party girl.

“Peaches was very impressed by Katie, she loved interviewing her and really wanted to become friends with her," says the friend.

"She thought that taking up Scientology would be the perfect springboard to work her way into that New York clique. She knows her dad won't be happy about it, but she feels it will help her move into bigger and better celeb circles, so she is willing to keep up with her studies to become a fully fledged Scientologist.”

Surely even Peaches isn’t so shallow that she’d embrace a new religion just to get invited to a few parties?

Brandy Norwood: Singer Dropped By Label & Parts With Management

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
R&B singer Brandy Norwood is in search of a new record deal.

BV Buzz has learned exclusively that the 30-year-old singer was just dropped by her label Epic Records because of the lackluster sales of from her comeback CD, 'Human.'

Released on Dec. 8, 2008, the CD has only sold 196,509 units to date according to SoundScan.

"Her friend Brandon Creed that works as an A&R representative at Epic Records has been making calls to see if other labels would be interested in signing her," a record company source told me.

In addition, Brandy has also parted ways with her management.

The former 'Moesha' star had been represented in recent months by Jay-Z's Roc Nation Management.

The McComb, Miss.-bred singer's relationship with Roc Nation supposedly dissolved because of "creative differences."

A rep for Roc Nation did confirm the split to BV Buzz.

"Roc Nation no longer reps Brandy," the publicist Jana Fleishman said in an e-mail yesterday.

A source tells me that Brandy's business relationship with Roc Nation "is what kept Epic Records from dropping her months ago." Since the singer is no longer repped by the firm, the label "didn't see the benefit in giving her another album."

"She was signed to Epic when Charlie Walk was president of the label. Now that Amanda Ghost is president, she is the one who decided to let Brandy go," the source explained.

Coincidentally, Roc Nation had also represented Ghost, who in addition to being president of Epic Records is a Grammy-nominated songwriter who has written for Beyoncé, Jordin Sparks and Shakira.

Brandy's last CD 'Human' was her first release in more than four years and her debut album for Epic Records.

Prior to signing with Epic, the singer had recorded exclusively for Atlantic Records, where she released four CDs before parting ways with that label in 2005.

A rep for Brandy denied that the singer has been dropped from the label.

"They have not dropped her. We are trying to get a release from them. We're in waiting,"
her rep told me, before adding: "And Brandy and Roc Nation parted amicably."

BV Buzz's call to Ghost's office was forwarded to Elisa Goldman in the publicity department. That call has gone unreturned.

A message was left for Creed as well, though he has yet to respond.

Ryan Reynolds: "I Have Every Intention of Adopting"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson are planning to adopt.

"My oldest brother is adopted and I have every intention of adopting at some time," Reynolds, 32, tells British Glamour in its new issue. "I'm very grateful for having my brother in my life. I couldn't be more pro-adoption. There are plenty of kids in the world that need it."

Reynolds - who currently headlines the Sandra Bullock romantic comedy The Proposal - also reflects on his own family life, growing up in Vancouver.

"I learned how to take a punch from a very early age," says the star, who is now known for his chiseled abs. "I was routinely pummeled into a fine cottage cheese."

As for his good looks (and brains), Reynolds thanks his parents.

"I have my father's face and body, but my mother's unshakeable thirst for knowledge," he says. "She works part-time jobs, but basically she's been a student her whole life. She still goes to university and she's in her 60s."

Reynolds wed Johansson, 24, in an intimate ceremony at a Canadian wilderness retreat last year.

In the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, the actress said she and Reynolds have no plans to start a family just yet.

Said Johansson (now shooting Iron Man 2), "I'm not pregnant nor will I be any time soon."

Paris Hilton’s Desperate Ex-BFF Speaks Out for Drunkenstepfather

I met Paris Hilton’s BFF, Brittany Flickinger, when she was doing some cross Canada bootleg tour, where clubs would pay her next to nothing to show up, whether it be a couple hundred bucks, gas money or a hotel room, all on a quest to stay relevant.

I told her about the site, she had never heard of it, but was willing to do a video because she needs to get her side of the story out, because she is being slandered all over the media as Paris promotes her new BFF shows, because the most common question asked is what happened to the last BFF and it keeping shit as credible as Paris can, since she doesn’t actually care about these people, she just cares about the money, she dropped her BFF and the BFF is upset about it.

She went on about how Paris was all over her for 6 months, always wanting to hang out, always wanting to be seen together, and the BFF failed to realize it was all a fucking lie and part of the promotional machine that is Paris Hilton and the second she did what needed to be done, she dropped this bitch like she should, because this bitch is just a latch on fame whore, who would compromise herself and her dignity to be on a show called Paris Hilton’s BFF to get into the limelight, that she got addicted to and is realizing now that is fading fuckin’ fast, and instead of going back to wherever she is from and shutting the fuck up about it and waiting for the world to forget this lapse in judgement, she’s trying to cling the fuck on.

Michael Jackson's Memorial Speakers Hardly Knew Him

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 

The majority of boldfaced names at Michael Jackson's July 6 memorial at Los Angeles' Staples Center hadn't spoken to the the singer in years.

Many never even met him at all.


Collapse )


Many of Jackson's close friends were no-shows: Macaulay Culkin, ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, Webster's Emmanuel Lewis, among others.

Quincy Jones, Jackson's longtime producer, and Diana Ross -- who was named in Jackson's will as a backup guardian to Jackson's three children -- also skipped the ceremony. Ross said she was at the memorial "in spirit," but that she "decided to pause and be silent" because it "feels right."

Arnold Klein, Jackson's longtime dermatologist and biological father to his two oldest children, was also noticeably absent. Debbie Rowe, mother of Jackson's two eldest children, said she skipped because she felt she'd "be an unnecessary distraction."

As for Elizabeth Taylor? She said she stayed home because she didn't want to "be a part of the public whoopla."

Even Jesse Jackson, who counseled the singer during his trial, was not present to speak. (A source tells Us Joe Jackson dislikes him and made sure Rev. Al Sharpton -- who laughed about Jackson during a 2008 discussion on race -- delivered a speech instead.)

Instead, most of the people who paid tribute to Jackson at Tuesday's memorial never met him at all.

Queen Latifah, who eulogized the singer, told David Letterman: "I never actually got to meet him. My partner met him because we managed Naughty by Nature and they did a remix with him. He thought I had beautiful cheekbones."

John Mayer -- who performed an instrumental version of "Human Nature" -- told Larry King he also "never met" the King of Pop. His only connection was listening to Thriller as a teen. He said the Jackson family asked him to perform. (The Los Angeles Times' Ann Powers remarked, "I don't know why John Mayer is here. Was Slash not available?")

Jennifer Hudson -- who performed "Will You Be There" -- also had no prior relationship with Jackson. Mariah Carey covered the Jackson 5 classic "I'll Be There," which she sang at the memorial. Though she worked with Jackson on his 2001 charity single "What More Can I Give?" she wasn't close with the singer, a source tells Us.

Usher, who sobbed and touched Jackson's coffin while singing "Gone Too Soon," performed with Jackson at his 2001 celebration concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden. But "their contact was minimal," the source tells Us, even though Usher has stated how influential Jackson was on his career.

Unmasking MJ's children

Michael Jackson's sudden death may give his three beloved children something he could never provide -- a chance to be themselves.

The King of Pop devoted his life to creating a fairy-tale Never Neverland for his three young heirs, a world where the reality around them was hidden behind masks or the burly frames of professional bodyguards.

Prince Michael Joseph, 12, Paris Michael, 11, and Prince Michael II, a k a "Blanket," 7, have never attended a day of school. They've never known a neighborhood friend.

'The Blair Witch Project' 10 years later: Catching up with the directors of the horror sensation

July 16 will be the 10-year anniversary of a little movie called The Blair Witch Project. Perhaps you've heard of it? The film's spectacular journey from Sundance indie to mainstream phenomenon has become Hollywood legend, so much so that Roger Ebert named Blair Witch one of the 10 most influential films of the 20th century. The movie gave hope to young, broke filmmakers everywhere -- all you needed was the cost of tuition for one year at college, some cheap cameras, and a very, very, very clever idea.

Since Blair Witch made $249 million worldwide on its initial $20,000-$25,000 budget, others have tried to duplicate its unprecedented success, including none other than the film's own two directors, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez. Still close friends, Dan and Ed went their separate ways after Blair Witch, each taking some time off before making a series of horror or supernatural flicks. Myrick directed Believers, Solstice, and The Objective; Sánchez helmed Altered and Seventh Moon. Haven't heard of those movies? Don't worry -- most of them went straight to DVD. But it can't be easy when your debut picture shatters records and is so convincing that some people, to this day, believe it's an actual documentary. How do you possibly follow that kind of once-in-a-lifetime anomaly?

EW talked to both of the Blair Witch directors individually, as well as the movie's three stars. To find out what has happened to those three young actors post-Blair, check out the new issue of EW, on newsstands July 10. But for now, enjoy this exclusive Q&A with directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez, who discuss how they shot the groundbreaking movie, what they make of the subsequent backlash against it, and whether they'd ever want to return to Blair Witch.

Dana International accused of racism

Famed transsexual singer Dana International has been accused of unleashing a torrent of racial abuse and threats this week against a pregnant, dark-skinned woman who recently immigrated from Britain.

The singer's manager, Shai Kerem, has denied the charges, adding that a lawsuit for slander was being planned.

"No one in London has called me a nigger before. I come here and get called a nigger, Lee'at Gentely, 25, who is nine months pregnant, told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.

"My dad is Israeli and my mother is black Brazilian. I am of mixed race. I'm from England, but I made aliya because there's so much anti-Semitism, and I wanted to have my baby in Israel," Gentely said, crying.

"I don't want to feel that it's acceptable to be called a nigger in Israel," she added.

Rupert visits FUSE newtork in NYC

Tipsy wizard Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint got so drunk at the premiere of 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' he got into the wrong car the next day.

The 20-year-old actor - who plays Harry's sidekick Ron Weasley in the boy wizard films - was already anticipating a "big night" when he walked the red carpet in the pouring rain at London's Leicester Square on Tuesday (07.07.09).

He said: "It's great to be here. Premieres are always a lot of fun. Always a really big night - if you know what I mean!"

After the event, Rupert and his co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe let their hair down at the after-party.

The next morning (08.07.09), Rupert seemed worse for wear, stumbling out of the exclusive Claridge's Mayfair hotel looking as though he might be sick at any moment.

The bleary-eyed star was so dazed he got into the wrong car, sitting there for around a minute before he realised his mistake.

The night before, Rupert bragged about his drunken antics at the premiere.

He laughed: "When I'm drunk I like to cause mischief. I'll steal props like the broomsticks from the 'Harry Potter' set and bring them out to the pub for comedy value. It seems funny at the time. Trouble is I usually get too trashed to remember what happened the next day."

Barrowman Blasts Bigoted Bishop

Dr Who actor John Barrowman has said that the Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, who called on gay people to "repent and be changed" will actually drive even more people away from churches.

The bishop's views, published in the Sunday Telegraph, sparked outrage from gay campaigners. Peter Tatchell called on him to "repent his homophobia".

Barrowman, who has also starred in Torchwood, said Dr Nazir-Ali should "stop talking rubbish."

He said: "From a gay man, weren't the actions of Jesus Christ supposed to be about compassion and love and understanding? And here you have a man who is supposed to be teaching that and he is teaching bigotry.

"I think more gay men would go to church if the teachers weren't as bigoted as they are. Now, I'm not saying all Christians believe like that, because there's a lot out there who don't.

"But these kind of men and women who are preaching that, they are going to lose their congregation because mums and dads are going to realise they have gay siblings - or children or family members who are gay - and they are not evil. Stop talking rubbish."

Edit: Has turned to a semi-discussion of Torchwood, episode 4. Just adding a spoiler warning here.


Hayden Panettiere: "I was tortured by classmates"

Hayden Panettiere might star in NBC’s “Heroes” as the popular high school cheerleader that saved the world – but in reality, the actress suffered through school years where she says she was “tortured” by her classmates.

The actress revealed her rough past during her time in middle school to the August issue of Details.

“I was tortured, emotionally tortured by these girls,” Hayden told the mag. “Every time I came back from filming, it would be me trying to find my way back into the clique. And they weren’t having it.”

Hayden said she started to feel different than the rest of her classmates as early as elementary school.

“I remember hearing in first grade, ‘Oh, why does she get to skip school?’” she said. “It wasn’t like I suddenly started feeling different. I always knew that I was. I never felt I missed out—in fact, it was like, ‘Oh, thank God I’m not that.’”

Though Hayden says she’s now single, she was previously linked to her “Heroes” co-star Milo Ventimiglia – and the actress told the mag that having their relationship ups and downs play out in the press wasn’t easy, either.

“When it comes to relationships, it’s nice to have something that is your own and not everyone else’s,” she said. “That’s not part of my job. I never stood up on a podium and said, ‘Vote for me – I’m perfect. I’ll be this for you and never do anything wrong.’”

Hayden’s family was also thrust into the spotlight in August 2008, when her dad, Alan Panettiere, was arrested on suspicion of hitting the actresses’ mom. He was later charged with misdemeanor spousal battery and received two years of informal probation after pleading no contest.

“It’s turned my life upside down and shaken it,” the actress said of the events. “It was very tough, especially since it’s my family. It’s one thing if you do it to me. I get frustrated, but I can handle it. But when it involves my family, my friends, forget it—I lose my… I learned the game. The more I react, the angrier I get, the more satisfaction they get. That’s exactly what they want.”

Hayden will return to “Heroes” in the fall and she’s also starring in “I Love You, Beth Cooper” which debuts in theaters on July 10.


Britney Spears Converting to Judaism

Britney Spears sparked rumors of her converting to Judaism after she was spotted sporting a Star of David necklace as she gave her two young sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, a tour of Paris on Tuesday, July 7. The particular accessory is widely known as the symbol of the belief.

Raised as a Baptist, Britney has tried her hand at various faiths. Back in 2003, she turned to Kabbalah, the famous belief of best friend Madonna. Then in 2006, the pop songstress dabbled in Hinduism and even visited a temple. Earlier this year, she was spotted wearing Christian jewels again. Despite the mounting rumors regarding Britney's new faith, neither she herself nor her camp has issued an official statement regarding the matter.

Personal life aside, Britney Spears is scheduled to bring her Circus concert to Canada and North America starting from August 20 through September 27 later this year. She will have Ciara and Kristinia DeBarge among the supporting acts.

Britney Spears loves censorship&being greedy; hates freedom of expression & being reasonable.

A big and important portion of the Swedish press is going to boycott Britney Spears’ upcoming concert in Stockholm, Sweden. The reason behind the ban is that the organizers demand that photographers sign a contract that gives her copyright to the pictures and the right to control which pictures are published.

-If we don’t sign the contract we are not allowed to take photos, says Dagens Nyheters’ head of photography, Roger Turesson (DN is the biggest newspaper in Sweden)

The contract that Spears’ concert organizer demands the media companies to sign in order to be allowed to take pictures is very detailed. For example no pictures from the concert can be published after 30 days, no pictures can be sold forward, that pictures that the organizer sees as offensive to the artist can not be published- and that Spears gets the ownership to the pictures that they like.

-The demands from concert organizers grow all the time. Before we agreed not to sell the pictures forward to posters and the like but this we cannot accept, Roger Turesson says.

It's only appropriate to post the pictures she looks the most horrible to go with this post. Say NO to censorship and greed!

'Marcia Brady' Says Television Sister 'Jan' Won't Talk to Her Over 'Lesbian Love Affair'

Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia on "The Brady Bunch," claims Eve Plumb, who played her sister Jan, is upset because McCormick claimed they had a lesbian affair on the set of the '70s sitcom.

McCormick, blogging this week on Fancast.com, said all six Brady "kids" were invited to re unite on the Oprah Winfrey show in September: "All of us said yes except for one person, Eve Plumb, who used to be my best friend but now apparently wants to distance herself from the show and, most troubling, from me ... I have no idea why, unless she's mad at the joke I made a few years ago that we'd had a lesbian love affair. I made the crack to be funny — and for shock value. I'm sorry if she took off ense."

McCormick "joked" about their sapphic sex last year just before her autobiography, "Here's the Story," was published. The "joke" made the book a best seller.

Plumb's agent, Mark Measures, downplayed any animosity: "No one from 'Oprah' called. We haven't turned down anything. There is no feud."

Source: Jackson family aware probe could be criminal case

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- The Jackson family knows that the probe into singer Michael Jackson's death could turn into a criminal case, a source close to the family told CNN Thursday.

"The family is aware of a potential criminal prosecution," the source, who did not want to be identified, said.

The comments came on the same day that Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton said detectives were awaiting the coroner's report to decide whether to proceed with the investigation as a homicide or an accidental overdose.

Actress: Michael Jackson's glove was to hide skin problem

(CNN) -- Michael Jackson's single white glove was his trademark -- an iconic image for a performer whose career constantly set, then redefined, pop culture trends.

But it also was an early effort to mask a skin condition that he would struggle with for the rest of his life, say some who were close to him.

Actress Cicely Tyson, a friend of Jackson's, said the two shared a fashion designer in the 1980s.

"All of a sudden, he said, 'I'm doing this glove for Michael,' " she said. "Michael was beginning to develop the vitiligo and it started on his hand.

"The glove was to cover the vitiligo; that's how that glove came into being."

I'm so tired of people saying he bleached his skin because he was ashamed of being black, ffs.

Lady GaGa broke/has sex with band members

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

GIMP masks, bras that shoot out sparks, latex granny knickers and skyscraper stilettos don’t come cheap. Just ask LADY GAGA. The chart-topping pop minx has confessed her addiction to outlandish attire has left her penniless. Despite two No1 singles and a No1 album, GaGa is flat broke.
She told me: “I’ve gone bankrupt about four times now. My manager wants to shoot me.

“Every dollar I earn goes on the show. Now we’re finally getting to a place where it’s not bankruptcy.

“Then again, with another tour coming up soon I’ll probably be homeless again.”

The New Yorker plays her first London headline show next Tuesday at the O2 Academy Brixton. Then later this year she kicks off a US tour with rapper KANYE WEST.And the self-assured songbird reckons her dates with the hip-hop titan will go down in history.

She said: “I can’t give any details, but it will be one of the most important moments in music ever.” Wow. Typically bold words from the brassy blonde. But if the pop princess isn’t prepared to spill the beans then here’s a teaser of what we might expect. And it sounds like the show’s not going to be for the faint-hearted.

She said: “I’m inspired by the moonlight, sex, slasher films and pornography.”

It seems there’s a bit of a love-in going on with the Chicago rapper. She added: “I truthfully adore Kanye. I always poke fun at him and joke around. We have a lovely creative relationship. He’s so sweet. I can’t say enough good things. He’s undeniably brilliant.” But all this focus on her shows is playing havoc with the star’s weird taste in men. GaGa, right, told me her perfect bloke would be dead German composer BEETHOVEN.

But at the moment she’s not seeing anyone. She said: “I’m a single girl. I like to have a good time.

“I just sleep with the guys in the band all the time because it’s easier.”

Radiohead to contribute to a David Bowie tribute album? Lies.

Radiohead and David Bowie: innovators and legends both. And now, word around the campfire says that Radiohead might appear on a forthcoming Bowie tribute album. That would be awesome... but it's not true.

Mick Karn, former bassist for the British art-synth band Japan, recently wrote on his website that he's recorded a cover of Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes" for a forthcoming Bowie tribute album, which will serve as a benefit for the charity War Child. (Via TwentyFourBit). According to Karn, the tribute will also include Radiohead, as well as Charlotte Gainsbourg and the ineffably cool French first lady Carla Bruni. He says it will be out in February 2010.

Today, NME and the Quietus picked up the story. However, we've received confirmation that Radiohead will not, in fact, appear on a David Bowie tribute album. (We don't even know if said album even exists, actually.)

This wouldn't be the first time Bowie has been covered for War Child, of course. TV on the Radio did "Heroes" for the last War Child benefit compilation, which was also called Heroes.

However, Thom Yorke has another tribute album appearance coming up. He'll cover "All for the Best" on Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, due September 29 from Shout! Factory. (Michael Stipe will also appear on the album.)


It was too good to be true. Thom singing Bowie's lyrics? My god.
So, who else had their hopes and dreams crushed?
Moderators, can we have a Radiohead tag? Pretty please?

Sobriety Leader Lindsay Lohan starts production company for TV and film

Lindsay Lohan and her fashion-line partner are hoping to create unforgettable TV and movie content with a new production company. Lohan and Kristi Kaylor, who runs Lohan's 6126 brand, named for Marilyn Monroe's birthday, have created Unforgettable Prods.

The duo are developing several projects, including a TV show called "Faux Real," described as "Entourage" for the fashion world.

There's also a game show involving dating, tentatively called "That's What Friends Are For" and a "docu-cause" TV show the pair will produce in conjunction with a charitable organisation.

Kaylor said they're also in the midst of optioning a couple of books -- one for film and the other for TV.

Before her career in fashion, Kaylor was senior vice president of Pacific Motion Pictures and had a producing deal with Longbow Prods. In 1999, she partnered with Jennifer Aniston for Voxxy, an online destination for girls that eventually was turned into a magazine catalogue and sold.

Lohan and Kaylor intend to weave digital media into everything they create at Unforgettable.

"We're taking a 360-degree approach," Kaylor said. "Lindsay is 23 years old, and she's so plugged in to mobile media."

Ryan Gosling's Dead Album Is Coming. Gosling not deceased btw.

Ryan Gosling is swapping acting for music and will release his debut album on October 6.

The 'Notebook' actor's band Dead Man's Bones - which he is in with friend Zach Shields - have spent two years working on the record, which is to be released on Anti Records.

The album features a children's choir called the Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir, which is comprised of kids aged five to 17.

Ryan has previously said of the project: "You know when you're a kid and you get crayons and papers and just draw whatever you want and it's just a bunch of messy lines, but to you it makes sense, and then they put it on the fridge?

"From that point on, you're always trying to get back on the fridge, you start drawing things that look like something, like, the more it looks like a horse, the more chance you have of getting it on the fridge. We wanted to get back to that place before we were trying to make the fridge. We wanted to work with people who hadn't been affected in that way yet."

Ryan, 28, plays several instruments in the group, including piano and guitar.


Maybe he did hookup with LiLo; and steal her fathers clothes.

Jude Law has been Violated.

Celebrity gossip can be a dirty, dirty business, and some are working to make it even dirtier. Reuters reports that British police are investigating a claim that journalists at Rupert Murdock's British newspaper were conspiring to hack into the phones of celebrities, legislators, and even public figures.

Among those targeted by the mag were Jude Law, who is currently in London starring in an amazing revival of Hamlet, as well as Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson, and former British deputy prime minister John Prescott. Apparently, reporters at News of the World were working with private investigators to access the cell phones of these celebs and publish anything they heard that seemed of interest in their tabloids.

The British police are taking this very seriously, as it brings up more debate about the ethics of British tabloids, which seem to have seen magazine sales falling since the internet.
