House Beautiful presents the 2nd Annual 'Kitchen Of The Year', with help from Barefoot Contessa


House Beautiful Magazine will be hosting the 2nd annual 'Kitchen Of The Year' at Rockefeller Center from July 20th to July 24th.

Showcased in the same location where the famous Christmas tree stands each year, the kitchen will give consumers an opportunity to experience, in person, the dream designer kitchen. The desire it to bring House Beautiful's pages to life with 1,000 square-feet of cutting-edge culinary design and an additional 1,000 square-feet of outdoor entertaining space.

This year's kitchen is designed by the great Robert Stilin and inspired by cooking celebrity and Food Network star Ina Garten, or 'Barefoot Contessa'. If you've seen her show you might be aware that Garten is brilliant at creating a comfortable, welcoming and beautiful home environment, in addition to amazing food.

“I always believe that the simplest things are the most elegant – both in food and in the kitchen,” says Garten.

You may or may not know that Ina Garten, star of Food Network's Barefoot Contessa, started her culinary career not to far up in the Hamptons. It was there that she opened her specialty food store, called The Barefoot Contessa, and started writing her library of five successful cookbooks. Ina is also currently a contributor to House Beautfiul with her monthly column "Ask the Barefoot Contessa".

While the kitchen itself will be a draw, I would recommend dropping by when House Beautiful is presenting “Tastes of Summer”. The event will offer visitors a sampling of delicious food and beverages for a nominal fee from some of New York City’s most renowned restaurants daily from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. from Tuesday, July 21, through Thursday, July 23. Participating restaurants include The Sea Grill, Morrell Wine Bar & Café, AJ Maxwell’s, Magnolia Bakery, Rock Center Café, and many more.

TARA SUBKOFF DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN TUMOR

 "A sad e-mail began circulating late last week announcing that 36-year-old designer Tara Subkoff has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. If not operated on, the tumor will be fatal in about two years. Tara, who launched label Imitation of Christ, will probably have the operation in August and recovery could take up to a year. Tara won't be able to work while she recovers, so her friends have banded together to organize an art benefit to help cover the remaining costs of the operation (eleven specialists are involved owing to the delicate nature of the tumor) and care needed afterward. They are looking for donations of artwork to be sold in a silent auction on Wednesday, July 15. The lot will include 200 pieces of Imitation of Christ couture from Tara's personal collection. Alternatively, you can just donate cash. Our hearts and thoughts are with Tara and her loved ones in this difficult time."



They're having a fundraiser... go to the source for more information. ONTD Fansign opportunity?? no no jk. I like tara, i hope she gets well soon.

Whitney Port's BFF Erin Lucas is Leaving The City



Whitney Port's City sidekick, Erin Lucas, announced last week she won't be part of the second season of the reality series. "I decided to do something different," she told us this week at the launch party for Alizé's online reality series, Concrete and Cashmere (on which Lucas is a guest judge). "I have a project in the mix, but I want to get into more hosting. That's really what I love." She also admitted she hasn't spoken to Port in months, though she claims there's no hard feelings and she'd give Port a big hug if she ever saw her again. "We were [close], but things change," she said. "There was a falling out" — reality-TV gold. However, we spotted The City crew filming at a Gen-Art benefit two weeks ago, which Erin attended along with Whitney. And you know what? There was no hugging. "I wasn't filming [that night], I was just there," Lucas tried to explain. She said running into the old camera crews and co-stars was awkward. "But Sammy's still one of my best friends." So why'd she give it up? "It was just hard," she said. "It was a chapter in my life and it was nothing but positive. I'm glad I did it, but on to the next thing. I'm kind of a gypsy. I released a statement a couple of days ago, but this is the first interview with people asking me about it, so I don't know what to say." Life is hard when no one gives you a script.

Why Are Rainn Wilson And Nathan Fillion Meeting With DC Comics?



What do Rainn Wilson (”The Office”) and frequent Joss Whedon collaborator Nathan Fillion (”Serenity”) have to do with DC Comics? That’s a very good question — and it’s one I’m dying to know the answer to, now that Wilson reported that the pair were en route to a meeting with the comics publisher.

The actual text of the message, posted on Twitter somewhere around 3:00 PM EST today, was as follows: “@rainnwilson and @nathanfillion are about to go meet with DC COMICS! Could be some good sh– percolating…”

But what could that “good sh–” entail?

Kate and the bodyguard? Jon started it

<br/><a href="http://i26.tinypic.com/vz8x7b.jpg" target="_blank">View Raw Image</a>

Sigh. The televised announcement that the "Jon & Kate Plus 8" parental unit were separating -- the one that aired less than a month ago -- had such a nice ring of closure to it. Too bad examples of the Gosselins' petty vindictiveness are still coming to light.

A "well-placed" source tells RadarOnline that the rumors about Kate Gosselin having an affair with the family's bodyguard, Steve Neild, were spread by none other than her estranged husband, Jon.

"Jon wanted a divorce and he also wanted to throw attention away from himself, so he spread that rumor," says "the source." "Jon doesn't like Steve so he didn't care about the repercussions."

Meanwhile, Kate was seen having not-so-secret Hollywood meetings at the Hotel Bel-Air and on the Warner Bros. lot on Wednesday (July 8) and hasn't seen her supposed lover -- who also happens to be married -- in several weeks, instead traveling with another member of the family's security team.

Because who has time for romance when you have that many mouths to feed?

I guess Jon's even more of a jerk than we thought.

Emma watson buys £3million London townhouse (w/ boyfriend?) + Rupert Grint RAPping @ Regis & Kelly



Swotty Hermione Granger has been clever enough to conjure up £3million to buy her own pad.

The Harry Potter witch, aka actress Emma Watson, seems to have cast a real spell on her posh banker boyfriend Jay Barrymore.

Because we can reveal that he’s moved in – and apparently they’re having a wanderful time.

It is the first sign yet that the couple are ready to go public with their romance, 16 months after initially getting together.

Says our source: “Emma’s off to university in America soon but was determined to put some roots down in England first.”

Emma, who plays Harry’s super-smart pal, is certainly no fool in real life.

We’re told: “Despite the fame, she’s really got her head screwed on, After consulting with several property experts, as well as her family and friends, she’s decided to invest in her own place.

“It’s a North London townhouse and it’s just a stone’s throw from her dad Chris’s house. So she can pop round for a Sunday roast whenever she fancies.”

Emma was first linked to posh financier Jay, 26, at a film awards do last year.

They split up briefly but our source says: “Her relationship with Jay is going from strength to strength. They are spending increasing amounts of time with one another. It makes perfect sense for Jay to leave some of his stuff at hers and see how it goes. So far, so good – and Emma’s confident they’ll stay together even when she’s abroad. It’s an exciting time for Emma, both personally and professionally.”

You can say that again. The actress, 19, is currently in New York filming the seventh and final Harry Potter movie. She appeared on the hugely popular David Letterman show, and is proving a big hit with US audiences.

Worth an estimated £10.5million from the phenomenally successful HP franchise, she is the first of the gang to buy her own pad.

And now she can really get to know her fella – Hogwarts and all!

Some good news for jailed American journalists in N. Korea?



SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea has delayed sending two convicted U.S. journalists to a prison labor camp, in a possible attempt to seek talks with Washington on their release, a scholar who visited the North said in an interview published Friday.

Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who work for former U.S. Vice President Al Gore's California-based Current TV media group, are being kept at guest house in the North Korean capital and have not yet been sent to a prison camp as called for in their sentences, University of Georgia political scientist Han Park said.

"I heard from North Korean officials that the American journalists were doing fine at a guest house in Pyongyang," Park told South Korea's JoongAng Ilbo newspaper. Park, originally from South Korea, arrived Thursday in Seoul following a trip to Pyongyang.

Ling and Lee were detained near the North Korean border with China and were sentenced last month to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally and for "hostile acts."

Park said North Korean officials were angry at the journalists for trying to produce a program critical of North Korea.

Lily Allen nipslip @ Montreux Jazz Festival



Collapse )

Lily Allen flashed her boob at an audience in Montreux when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction live on stage and exposed her nipple.

The singer, 24 was performing at the 43rd Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland when the slip-up occurred.

On lifting her hand up in the air the brunette’s dress slipped to one side and exposed her bra-less breast.

Lily is popping out to play at Somerset House in London this evening whilst in the middle of her world tour – let’s hope she’s got something a little more secure to wear. Or not, as the case maybe.

WHO else is joining the cast of St. Trinian's 2?



Doctor Who star David Tennant and Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding are joining the cast of the new St Trinian's movie, it has been confirmed.

The pair will star alongside Rupert Everett and Colin Firth in St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold. It follows the success of 2007's St Trinian's, which grossed £15 million at the UK box office.

A spokeswoman for the movie said Harding, 27, will play a "cool new schoolgirl".

It is not her first stint on the big screen as Harding played a cameo role in the 2007 film, alongside her bandmates.

She has also filmed a gritty BBC drama called Freefall.

Tennant, 38, whose role as the Doctor will be taken over by Matt Smith, will turn from hero to villain - playing a character called Pomfrey, who has sidekicks from a women-hating secret society.

Ashes to Ashes actress Montserrat Lombard is also joining the line-up.

Twilight-edgier, cooler, and soon to topple Harry Potter...?

Alicia Penner, a 13-year-old from Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, read the “Harry Potter” books 57 times. She watched the “Harry Potter” movies. Then last fall, a friend lent her the teen vampire book series “Twilight”—and she was hooked. The “Harry Potter” poster that used to hang on her bedroom wall has been replaced by the “Twilight” poster she got for her 13th birthday.



As a new “Harry Potter” movie opens next week, the bespectacled wizard faces a new challenge: how to compete for the attention of a young audience that has been growing up—and is starting to prefer the angsty teen romances and cooler, edgier characters of the “Twilight” books and movies.

The film moves directly into the territory where “Twilight” now rules. The sixth “Potter” movie, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” has a distinctly more grown-up tone than its predecessors and features a strong romantic plotline.

Raid at Jackson's Netted Heavy Drugs

Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies who raided Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch back in 2003 found a syringe, powerful narcotics, vials and IV bags containing what could be anesthesia.



We've obtained the documents from the Sheriff's Department detailing what was found in the search. Among the items ...

-- A vial of Versed -- a powerful sedative
-- Several IV bags containing "a milky white fluid, located in a small cardboard box on top of the bathtub." Propofol and other anesthesias are milky white. As we first reported, Propofol was in Jackson's home the day he died.
-- A vial of Promethazine -- an antihistamine with strong sedative effects
-- A bottle of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax, a powerful anti-anxiety drug)
-- A bottle of Percocet -- a painkiller
-- A syringe
-- A vial with Demerol in it
-- Numerous loose pills outside bottles
-- A bottle of Prednisone -- a steroid
-- Ery-tab -- an antibiotic
-- Prescriptions for Xanax that had been filled
-- A prescription for Alprazolam
-- Oxygen tanks
-- IV stands

Emma Watson hates her fans

Emma Watson can't wait to head to the U.S. for college this fall but has one requirement for her roommate: no diehard fans.

"As long as there are no Harry Potter posters on the wall, I will be fine and happy," Watson, 19, told PEOPLE at the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince press conference in New York Thursday. "Oh God, it's part luck, isn't it. We'll see."

Daniel Radcliffe, however, saw an opportunity to tease his costar. "I really hope they are a really massive Harry Potter fan," joked Radcliffe. "I hope you walk in and the first thing you see is your face on a duvet."

Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, is moving across the pond in late August to attend an Ivy League college and earn a liberal arts degree possibly in English literature or Art. She admits she will be homesick.

"I will miss marmite, baked beans, London taxis and the rain!" Watson told PEOPLE Thursday night at the film’s premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre. "I may have to bring boxes full of marmite and baked beans with me."

When ask what kind of roommate she will be, Watson says she will be a polite and tidy one. "Cleanliness is good. Hopefully I'm reasonably okay to live with," she said.

Will Keep Acting

Though she will be focused on her studies, Watson won't turn her back on the craft that made her famous.

"I definitely want to continue. I've managed to juggle and balance studying and working well enough to this point so I can't see why I can't keep doing that," she said. "But I am looking forward to being a normal teenager and want a normal experience for a bit. Just a little bit of normality for a while would be nice."

That's one of the reasons she'll live in the dorm. "If I'm going to do this experience, I'm going to do it properly and going to do it like everyone else," she said.

Watson admits she will need to brush up on her culinary skills now that she will have to cook meals for herself during late night studying breaks.

"I'm terrible at cooking," she said. "I live alone at the moment with a flatmate so I've kind of had an introduction to cooking but I need to improve."

She also confesses to be prone to kitchen mishaps.

"I’ve had tons of mishaps all the time. I've left the oven on many times where things overcooked and caused smoke and lots of other bad things." But Watson does claim one specialty: "I can make a fantastic bowl of spaghetti bolognese."

He said: "Christina Aguilera. She's very cold and quite rude. I didn't like the way she treated people around her. I don't care if she gets to know it either."

"She was pregnant when I shot her so maybe she was having a bad day. But I don't think so."

"Christina Aguilera, I think is a really horrible, nasty person and I would never work with her again." Why? "Because she's not nice. She's just not a nice person," he says firmly.

Patricia Arquette calls off divorce from Thomas Jane

Patricia Arquette is done trying to divorce Thomas Jane.

Less than a month after the Medium star and her famous siblings were spotted at the launch party for Jane's new HBO series, Hung, a judge has signed off on her request to abandon the divorce petition she filed in January.

Arquette filed the request Tuesday, and it was approved today. Neither actor's rep had any comment, and no details were included in the one-page document as to what led to their reconciliation—though it appears that the two continued to spend quality time together despite the proposed split.

In addition to hanging at the Hung party in June, Jane and Arquette also cohosted a soiree in February for the composer who scored Jane's directorial debut, The Dark Country.

The couple, who married in May 2006, have a 6-year-old daughter, Harlow Olivia Calliope Jane. Arquette also has a teenage son, Enzo, from a previous relationship.

Michael Jackson's Kids Could Be Performers, Joe Jackson Says


Joe Jackson famously launched his sons, the Jackson 5, into superstardom, laying the groundwork for Michael Jackson's legendary career. And, in a "Good Morning America" interview on Friday (July 10), the family patriarch seemed to think Michael's children have bright futures in entertainment.

"I don't know — I keep watching Paris," he said, referring to Jackson's middle child, who spoke memorably at her father's memorial on Tuesday. "She ... wants to do something. And as far as I can see, well, they say Blanket [Michael's youngest child, Prince Michael II], he can really dance."

In the interview, when asked who should get custody of Blanket, Paris and Prince, he said he felt they should stay with the Jacksons, and specifically with Joe and his reportedly estranged wife, Katherine. "Their grandmother — Katherine — and I" should raise them, he said. "Yes, there's no one else to do what we can do for them. We should keep them all together and then make them happy, feed 'em like they're supposed to be fed, and let them get rest, plenty of sleep and grow up to be strong Jacksons."

He noted that Katherine, who currently has custody of the kids and may face a custody battle, hasn't had an easy time since Jackson's death last month. "She's taking it real hard," Joe said. "When you start talking about Michael, she starts crying."

Joe said he is awaiting toxicology reports to return about Michael's cause of death. "I just couldn't believe what was happening to Michael," he said. "I do believe it was foul play. I do believe that. Yes."

Jamie Foxx has already slammed Miley Cyrus and now he’s making Rihanna squirm. According to The New York Post’s Page Six, Jamie tried to get Rihanna on stage during a recent party at Tao in Las Vegas, but Rihanna wasn’t having any of his funny business. “Jamie took over the microphone and started doing a show. Halfway through, he asked Rihanna to join him onstage,” a Page Six source claims spy. “Rihanna declined, but Foxx continued to badger her.” The DJ then played “Umbrella” and the singer tried to bolt. “She got up to leave, and Jamie told the deejay to stop the record,” the source continued. And then Jamie reportedly yelled, “You can’t go while your song is playing. Relax.” The source continued, adding, “Rihanna stayed and pretended to enjoy herself, but it was so obvious she was fuming. As soon as the song was over, she got the hell out of there.” But we completely understand why she wanted to get the hella ella ella out of there!

How Cheryl Cole has turned herself into The Human Barbie

She's spent £4,000 a year on hair extensions, £9,500 on her smile - and £36,000 on an exercise bike. How Cheryl Cole gave herself the X-factor.




With the best will in the world, you could not call it subtle - but then if you have spent £4,165 on an Alexander McQueen dress for your 26th birthday party, you are probably quite anxious to be noticed.

And there's not much of it - the dress is chiefly sheer, and it probably works out at about £50 per square centimetre of fabric.

But then, as Dolly Parton famously remarked: 'You'd be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap.'

On Wednesday, blond bombshell Anna Kournikova was in town with her team, the St. Louis Aces, for their match against the Kastles. The tennis glamour queen was unable to play due to a wrist injury, but we caught up with her at a press conference and asked about - what else? - her rumored engagement to heartthrob singer Enrique Iglesias.
 

"I don't normally talk about my personal life," she answered, trying to shield the ring the size of Texas she was rocking. "People are saying a lot of things. There is always something new."
 

When freelance photographer Carrie Devorah congratulated Miss Kournikova with the common Hebrew/Yiddish expression "mazel tov," the Russian beauty asked what that meant. When the photog explained it means congratulations and good luck, Miss K, according to Ms. Devorah, snapped, "I am not Jewish - can't you see my cross?"
 

When apprised of the tennis player's retort, a worried-looking Mark Ein, owner of the Kastles, declined to comment, saying he hadn't heard the reported exchange.

Jennifer Aniston Treats Her Crew to a Four-Day Fourth

 


Looks like star treatment is rampant on the set of Jennifer Aniston's new movie The Bounty – courtesy of Aniston herself. The actress made sure the entire cast and crew of the film started their Fourth of July weekend on Thursday, July 2, a day earlier than expected, by footing the bill for everyone's salary so they could have a four-day holiday.

"Jen is such a genuinely good person," says one crew member. "How many people in this world would pay for an entire movie set to have off for the day? Not just anyone does that. We're talking big bucks."

Aniston has been in New York City for the past couple of weeks, along with a week in Atlantic City, filming the thriller with Gerard Butler.

Aniston's rep could not be reached for comment. Columbia Pictures did not return calls for comment.

Emma Watson Hopes Her College Roommate Isn't a Fan.


 



Emma Watson can't wait to head to the U.S. for college this fall but has one requirement for her roommate: no diehard fans.

"As long as there are no Harry Potter posters on the wall, I will be fine and happy," Watson, 19, told PEOPLE at the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince press conference in New York Thursday. "Oh God, it's part luck, isn't it. We'll see."

Daniel Radcliffe, however, saw an opportunity to tease his costar. "I really hope they are a really massive Harry Potter fan," joked Radcliffe. "I hope you walk in and the first thing you see is your face on a duvet."

Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, is moving across the pond in late August to attend an Ivy League college and earn a liberal arts degree possibly in English literature or Art. She admits she will be homesick.

Beth Ditto's clothing line for plus-sized women launched yesterday.


Beth Ditto, the plus-sized singer with a personality to match, is about to launch a fashion line made exclusively for women sizes 10-28.

She's best known as the lead singer for indie-rock band Gossip, but recently the voluptuous rocker burst onto scene when she posed naked on the launch cover of Love magazine in February. She's been spotted recently cavorting in fashion circles with the likes of model Kate Moss.

The singer has designed a line of clothing for the UK-based, plus-sized line Evans, owned by Arcadia Group Limited. The group also owns hip retail giant TopShop. According to fashion blog JCreport.com, Evans has struggled with sales -- and style, for that matter - and brought Ditto on to spice things up.

The outspoken Ditto got the gig when TopShop asked her to make a few in-store appearances; a request Ditto refused.

"Give me the job. I want to design, I want you to make clothes for big girls, big boys. I want you to make big sizes," Ditto told British magazine NME.


Ditto designed the line drawing from her own sense of style: punk rock and bright colors. The line includes vintage-inspired dresses, cropped jackets, and brightly colored leggings.

The line hits UK stores on July 9, but will only be available in the U.S. online at Evans.co.uk

Robert Pattinson: Back to Work in Brooklyn

Showing a fierce dedication to his craft, Robert Pattinson was spotted on the set of his new project “Remember Me” earlier today (July 10).

The “New Moon” stud looked intensely focused as he strolled around the Brooklyn, New York City location sporting a baseball cap and a faded flannel shirt.

And it seems Mr. Pattinson may have been feeling some fatigue from his long hours recently, as he was carrying an iced Starbucks coffee beverage with him wherever he went.

Also on the set today was his cute co-star Emilie de Ravin, who also stars in the film along with Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper.

Aly & AJ’s Name Change Inspires Idolator's List Of Other Artists Who Have Changed Their Monikers


Earlier this week, the blonde pop duo Aly & AJ announced that they had changed their name to 78violet. (”Fyi…..u pronounce #78violet as seventy eight violet:),” they helpfully added.) The sisters are calling their renaming “an exciting new beginning,” although given that they’ve already achieved some chart success under their old name, one wonders if this change might hurt their fledgling pop career more than it helps. As a way to assist these young ladies through this crucial stage in their career, Idolator presents a few stories of artists who changed their names—and how their careers fared once all the paperwork with the local DMV had been signed.


THE OLD NAME: Green Jellö.
THE NEW NAME: Green Jellÿ (but it’s pronounced “green jello”).
THE REASONING: Let’s just say that Jell-O makers Kraft Foods weren’t so keen on their signature gelatin being branded with the gross-out rockers, who came to fame in the early ’90s with their retelling of the old fairy tale “Three Little Pigs.”

THE RESULT: The band kept at it after “Pigs,” opening an audio-visual production agency and covering Gary Glitter’s “Leader Of The Gang” with Hulk Hogan. After splitting up in 1995, they returned in 2008 for a brief roll in the reunion-tour mud.


THE OLD NAME: John Cougar.
THE NEW NAMES: John Cougar Mellencamp; John Mellencamp.
THE REASONING: Flush from the success of “Jack & Diane,” John managed to get enough clout to force his record label to re-add his surname to his feline stage name, which he claimed was forced on him by the suits. He eventually dropped the “Cougar” for good in 1991.
THE RESULT: His songs from all three eras are still ubiquitous on classic-rock radio, which is a sign that when one fights authority, authority might not always win.

MTV Greenlights Series About Endowed Teenager


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MTV has fallen on "Hard Times" and will air the new coming-of-age comedy series.

The teen series, whose plot is drawing comparisons to HBO's older-skewing new comedy "Hung," chronicles the hellish life of RJ Berger, a desperately unpopular 15-year-old.

When RJ's anatomical gift is dramatically revealed in front of the whole school, he goes from anonymous to famous and finds his first sliver of confidence. But he also has to deal with a best friend trying to capitalize on his newfound fame, a student body with no shortage of cruel jokes and an insane home life.

"Hard," from New Remote Prods., was created and executive produced by David Katzenberg, whose producing credits include CBS' "Survivor," and Seth Grahame-Smith.

MTV declined to comment.

A Real-Life Wall-E

Italian scientists develop DustCart, an on-demand robot trash collector.



PECCIOLI, Italy — In this 8th century town, amid the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, everyone talks trash. Even at the local restaurant, visitors chewing on roasted meat are asked for their thoughts on garbage.
 
Since the late 1980s, nothing has made Peccioli residents happier than collecting garbage. At that time, the small town built one of the most advanced dumping sites in Italy, designed to recycle and produce green energy. For 20 years, it’s been Peccioli’s most profitable business.

So when a group of young scientists from a nearby university in Pisa called Peccioli’s city hall and asked for permission to run a robotics test, all they had to do was say the magic word: trash.

During a recent test-run at Peccioli’s main terrace, the future of garbage collection zoomed in on two wheels, rounded and shiny, devoid of arms, and with two big round inspiring eyes.

Ashlee Re-Recording Michael’s Hits?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hopefully this is all one big lie - but apparently Ashlee Simpson is in talks to create a Michael Jackson cover album.

Horrifying, yes, but it seems Simpson's father Joe thinks it would be a brilliant idea to have his youngest pop star daughter sing Michael Jackson songs on a cover album.

Apparently, Joe Simpson is pitching the idea to music executives - so it's certainly not confirmed yet. And the idea of Ashlee Simpson singing Thriller has Dlisted running for the hills:

I have a feeling that Simpson's voice singing "Thriller" would cause Michael Jackson to rise from the dead so that he could moonwalk all over her mouth hole! Maybe that's not such a bad thing after all.

Bob Dylan Closes Out Rothbury With Classics-Heavy Set

(i dont like posting pics of old-bob... he is so much prettier as young bob)

On the first fully sun-soaked day of this year's Rothbury Festival, Bob Dylan sent fans home "Blowin' in the Wind" with a 90-minute, 17-song show to close out the festival's Odeum main stage.

For the fourth show of his U.S. tour promoting his latest album, "Together Through Life," Dylan and his band -- who are mostly playing minor league baseball stadiums with Willie Nelson (who also played Rothbury) and John Mellencamp -- offered up just one song from the set, "Jolene," instead dipping into his iconic catalog for a wealth of favorites such as "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat," a slinky treatment of "Tangled Up In Blue," "Highway 61 Revisited," "Ballad of a Thin Man," "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again," "Like A Rolling Stone" and fierce "All Along The Watchtower."

Playing guitar on the night's first two songs and then switching to keyboards and/or harmonica for the rest, Dylan, sporting a dark suit and hat, also served up less well-known selections such as "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)," "Rollin' and Tumblin'," "Po' Boy," "Nettie Moore," "'Til I Fell in Love With You" and "Thunder on the Mountain." "Blowin' in the Wind" was added at the end, after the night's set list had already been determined.

Dylan finished Rothbury on a day when the sun and heat brought out nude dancers as well as a lineup potent enough to keep fans dashing between the three main stage areas.

Jon Heder getting his own series on comedy central

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Now everyone involved with the show just needs to figure out what it’s going to be.

Mr. Heder said that concept was still in flux. Most likely, he said, he would play a character who is “a know-it-all, or a thinks-he-knows-it-all,” and who takes it upon himself to be a third parent to a younger sibling.

“He’s never had a cellphone, but his brother has grown up on Facebook,” Mr. Heder explained. “He hears sidekick and he thinks, ‘Oh, literally, a tag-along.’ ‘No, no, it’s that mobile device.’ ” (Mr. Heder, whose 24-year-old brother is currently living with him, acknowledged that he might have taken this concept from real life.)

The show’s producers include Will Ferrell.

Does he deserve his own series?

Brothers poster

Cinematical has just received this exclusive poster for Brothers, starring Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Directed by Jim Sheridan (In America, In the Name of the Father), Brothers is an English-language remake of Susanne Bier's 2004 film of the same name, and it follows the intricate relationships between a marine, his wife and his fresh-out-of-jail brother.

Maguire plays Sam, a marine who goes missing overseas during his fourth tour of duty. When Sam is assumed dead, his wife Grace (Portman) tries to pull her family back together with help from Sam's black-sheep brother Tommy (Gyllenhaal). One thing leads to another, lines are crossed, and when it's discovered that Sam is actually alive, our marine returns home to a very interesting (and uncomfortable) family dynamic. A very solid trailer for the film just debuted earlier this week and this three-way cast proves they're certainly capable of delivering the goods. I also like how the poster cuts off a quarter of Portman's body, as if that's the part that now belongs to her husband's brother. It's subtle and well done.

Radcliffe jibe at Grint swine flu, Plus exclusive clip


Rupert Grint received little sympathy from his Harry Potter co-stars as he battled the ravages of swine flu.

The actor had to take five days off filming after coming down with a bout of the illness.

But friend and co-star Daniel Radcliffe was having none of it, jokingly casting aspersions over the severity of Rupert's malaise in the process.

"He's fine, he's fine. He was probably faking it, old sick note," the Harry Potter actor said at the New York premiere of the latest Potter film.

Daniel added: "He'll be back filming on Monday. And if he not I'll have to kick him out of bed."

It was a typical response from Daniel, Rupert said in response.

"I'm not surprised. I didn't go into work for five days though, it was quite a weird thing coming down with swine flu," he said.

Torchwood producer discusses Children of Earth and possibility of Series 4


Does switching from BBC Two to BBC One change the nature of the series?
Obviously we’re trying to appeal to a more mainstream audience going to BBC One, but it is still post-watershed. We actually take this series on a darker journey, if anything. But Children Of Earth is still the same show. Jack is still as cheeky and irreverent and sexy. Telling one big story meant that the story had more scale and reach than we ever had in series two, but no, nothing’s changed. It’s still the same Torchwood: action-packed, thrilling and funny, it’s got just about everything.

“I bring Bronx to work and it’s awesome,” said Ashlee. “Melrose Place is such a fun show, and I get the best of both worlds because I get to work in an ensemble cast with great actors and then I can play and make a little nursery and hang out with him too.”
 
“I don’t read anything. If it’s sweet and positive, I might read it,” she said. “Jess, Pete and I all do that. If it’s a good review or a nice story, we might read it. But if somebody just wants to be mean for no reason, then we choose to ignore it.”

The $400 Million Club

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen grossed over $200 million in its first week. Most box office analysts say that the film is well on pace to pass $400 million domestically - no small feat as only eight other movies have done so in the history of cinema.
What makes Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen so unique is that it would be the first film to reach that mark despite abysmal reviews that encouraged viewers to avoid the film. Sure, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace wasn't critically acclaimed, but it certainly fared far better with critics than Revenge of the Fallen.

According to Rob Moore, vice chairman of Paramount, critics "forget what the goal of the movie was. The goal of the movie was to entertain and have fun." Being entertaining and fun is a good goal for a blockbuster movie to have - it's the same goal that the producers of The Dark Knight and Spiderman had, but they decided to make their movie good on top of it.

Assuming Revenge of the Fallen does become the ninth member of the $400 million club, we thought it would be interesting to compare it to the first eight movies that passed that threshold. The graph below takes into account box office gross, widest theatrical releases, and Rotten Tomatoes rankings.

Fight over MJ's resting place

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Despite their show of unity at Michael Jackson's memorial service this week, new reports claim that the Jackson family is bitterly divided over where they want the King of Pop to be buried.

According to a New York Post report, patriarch Joe Jackson and Michael's brother Jermaine want the late Jackson buried at Neverland Ranch, which would then be turned into a museum a la Graceland. However, Michael's mother Katherine and the rest of the family wants Jackson buried elsewhere, as he vowed to never return to Neverland following his child molestation acquittal in 2003.

"Jermaine is the one that wants him at Neverland -- he and Joseph -- because of the whole Elvis thing and the money potential ... They are seeing dollar signs," a Post source said.


So where is Jacksons gold-casket-enclosed body now? Reportedly in the above-ground crypt of Motown founder Berry Gordy at Forest Lawn Cemetery. The Post reports that Gordy, who discovered and coached the Jackson 5 to stardom, temporarily offered the Jacksons use of his mosaoleum until Michael's final resting place is decided upon.

The world got a glimpse of Jackson's ornate casket at the huge memorial service on July 7, and PEOPLE is reporting that beforehand, the Jackson Family was able to pay their respect for Michael Jackson one last time at an open casket viewing at Forest Lawn cemetery.
"He looked like himself. He looked like he just was laying there sleeping," David Fosset, a cousin of the King of Pop's, tells PEOPLE.

"He looked peaceful," Fosset added. "It was a somber mood. Even though he's this big entertainer, he's still our family."
