Outtakes from Demi Lovato's Here We Go Again album photoshoot

Collapse )

And Billboard's review of her album:

"While some Disney artists rely heavily on Auto-Tune and layers of effects, Demi Lovato sounds best with stripped-down production. One example is "Catch Me," a perfect acoustic ballad found halfway through the 16-year-old singer's second album, "Here We Go Again." Lovato sings with more yearning than Jewel and better phrasing to boot. The listener can even hear Lovato put a grin into her voice when singing the line, "You've got me smiling in my sleep." "Every Time You Lie" swings like Maroon 5's brand of radio soul, while "World of Chances" could easily be heard from a stage at Lilith Fair. Along with some quiet surprises, there are also potential hits, including the first single/title track, where Lovato almost sounds like Kelly Clarkson's kid sister. Quiet or loud, rock or folk, Lovato is a natural talent who could really take flight after outgrowing Disney."


Demi's sophomore album, Here We Go Again, comes out in stores this Tuesday, July 21st!

Mischa Barton News/Updates

Psychiatrist: Mischa Barton Hospitalized, 'at the Brink of Disaster'

A psychiatric expert said California authorities were fearful actress Mischa Barton might have ended up dead within 24 hours when they decided to hospitalize her under the state’s involuntary psychiatric-hold law Wednesday afternoon.

“It’s a 24-hour standard for these statutes,” said Dr. Keith Ablow, a psychiatrist and FOX News contributor. “You have to ask yourself, ‘Would this person die in the next 24 hours?’ They have to be at the brink of complete disaster.”

Barton, 23, was brought to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where she was hospitalized under the state’s section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, the New York Post reported.

The statute allows the state to hold people in the hospital for up to 72 hours if they are a danger to themselves or others. After 72 hours, a judge would have to be brought in if the person does not agree to voluntarily check herself in.

But the kid is not my son

While this rumor is apparently somewhat old, it was the first we’ve ever heard of Michael Jackson having a secret biological son. The kid in question is Omer Bhatti, who’s in his early twenties and hails from Norway. Omer has been close with the pop star since the mid-90s, when he began touring with the singer and living on and off at Neverland Ranch. While Jackson supposedly told people that Bhatti is his son (the result of a one-night-stand with a Norwegian fan), others claim they met after he wowed M.J. with an on-point impression of the singer as a kid. “I’m not surprised Michael says he’s the father,” a source told Fox News in 2004. “It’s a fantasy. But these people did not exist in Michael’s life before 1996.”

Omer is allegedly convinced that he is Jackson’s son and is desperate for a DNA test to prove it. He was spotted yesterday by photographers shopping for groceries before heading over to the Jackson family home, where Michael’s three kids currently reside. Going to visit his siblings, perhaps?

Check out the pics above of Omer - taken yesterday- and Michael, from when he was around 20 years old (and - we think - before plastic surgery). Do you see a resemblance? [Photos: GettyImages/Splash News Online]

2NE1’s GongMinJi Gives Up on School at 15


2NE1’s youngest member, GongMinJi revealed that once graduating middle school, she gave up on her studies for entering high school.

The reason for quitting school?

All for the sake of the path she has to take. This is no different to other music legends such as SeoTaeJi and JangWooSung.

During an interview with My Daily, she shared “to be honest, I agonised a lot over this issue for a long time. But I thought about the lack of support from the school related to a celebrity lifestyle, and that ultimately determined my decision to discontinue my studies. I want to do this (singing) more”

The 15 year old, who has a 10 year age gap between other members ParkBom and Sandara Park, also said that she lacked feelings and sentiments while recording their latest hit “I Don’t Care” as the song is based on break ups with bad boys. She explained in an interview “I think it’s because I’m a still minor”



South Australian actor talks about role in third Twilight film

Xavier Samuel lands a role in the Twilight movie franchise.

Xavier, 25, will star as new vampire Riley in Eclipse, the third film in the series based on Stephenie Meyer's books.

He won the part against established actors including Tom ``Draco'' Felton from the Harry Potter films and Channing Tatum (G. I. Joe)..

``I was up against some truly great actors who I'm privileged to be considered among,'' he said from Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles where he was celebrating last night.
``It's a fantastic opportunity.''

Xavier explains he'd put together his audition tape in Sydney just three weeks ago, and flew to LA last Thursday.
``It all happened in less than a month!'' said Xavier, who graduated from the Flinders University Drama Centre in 2005.

He has starred in a few low-profile Australian movies, including September and Newcastle , and two months ago filmed low-budget thriller Road Train in the Flinders Ranges.
Eclipse, his first Hollywood film, follows Bella (Kristen Stewart) as she tries to choose between two loves: the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner).

Xavier's character is a student ``seduced by the villain Victoria, who manipulates him in order to seek her revenge'', he said. ``That's as much as I know really!''
The movie of Twilight has made $478 million at the box office and sequel New Moon is due in cinemas in November. Eclipse starts filming in Vancouver, Canada, next month and will be released in June.

Xavier will be coming back to Australia before filming starts for the premiere of his new film, The Loved Ones, at the Melbourne International Film Festival on July 30.
``Hopefully, I'll get to spend some time in Adelaide with my family and friends as well,'' he said.

Thom Yorke live at Latitude Festival

Today is the fourth and final day of the Latitude Festival. Thom Yorke has been announced as a very special guest at the Obelisk Arena in Suffolk, where he debuted a new song.

The performance was already pretty unique as the Radiohead frontman hasn’t done any solo shows since the release of ‘The Eraser’. Thom Yorke took the stage at noon. Despite the early hour, the festival organiser called Thom Yorke’s performance another headlining slot at the festival. Responding to the crowd’s cheers Thom said: “Shhh… There’s people sleeping”. Playing on piano, Thom started with ‘The Eraser’, which was the first of five tracks played from Thom Yorke’s debut album. When someone from the crowd shouted “I love you Thom”, he replied; “Yes dear, I’ll be home later.” For Harrowdown Hill and Black Swan Thom took the guitar, looped it and returned to the organ. Everything In Its Right Place was played on piano as well as on a sampler and drum machine.

Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich was watching (and singing along) on the side of the stage. Thom Yorke played three songs which were never released on a studio album; ‘Follow Me Around’, ‘True Love Waits’ and played for the new song
‘The Present Tense‘
for the first time with key lyric ‘I’m Lost In You’.
“Thank you for having me,” said Thom at the end of the set. Thanking the Latitude Festival, he said: “I thought it was a nuts idea, which is why I did it!” (…) “Have a wicked Sunday”.

She went from "The O.C." to an OD.

Mischa Barton was so high on coke following a marathon three-day bender that friends called cops afraid she would kill herself, sources have told The Post.

Barton, 23, was taken away from her LA home by police and placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold on Wednesday.

The party-loving former "O.C" star was due to fly to New York for the premiere of her movie "Homecoming," which has been slammed by critics.

A source close to Barton said, "She's in very bad shape.

"She's running out of money and can't find love, so now she is looking for a good time to escape her misery. She is on a downward spiral.

Barrowman survives 80mph crash

John Barrowman seems to have all the luck at the moment.

The popular actor, who portrays Captain Jack Harkness in Torchwood, managed to survive a terrifying high-speed crash after losing control of his car. 42-year-old Barrowman, whose character on the show cannot die, was filming a slot for Fifth Gear when the accident happened.

He was taking part in a race in Powys, Wales, with Fifth Gear presenter Tiff Needell, who was in the passenger seat when the crash happened. The £120,000 Subaru slid down a verge, flipped four times and almost went into a lake at the bottom of the hill, according to the News of the World. Paramedics pulled Barrowman and Needell out, and removed shattered glass from Barrowman's eye before he was taken to hospital.

Barrowman said: 'I'm lucky to walk away unscathed. I got a ticking off from my mum afterwards.' Thankfully for his matinee idol looks, the Torchwood star was only left with cuts and bruises and nothing permanent. The crash will be screened on tomorrow's Fifth Gear, which is shown on Channel 5.

We hope and pray he tells us all about his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman.

Big Brother's Braden is an Asshole and Idiot

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As the first housemate evicted from Big Brother 11, California surfer Braden’s tenure in the house may not have lasted long, but he did manage to make some lasting impressions. His confrontation of Lydia, who he felt had betrayed him, was one for the books — and it led to a house-wide screaming match that left the remaining contestants split down the middle. – Reagan Alexander

You’re the first one out, which isn't exactly what you would call on honor. Were you surprised?
I’m not going to be pissed off about something I can’t do anything about. I’d rather be the first one out than the third or fourth one out. The sky’s the limit for me. It’s summertime and it’s my mom’s birthday next week. I have things to look forward to.

What was your downfall?
It’s called sabotage. Lydia and I were getting along great and she went behind my back to save her own ass. She went and told lies to Jessie and told the whole Jock crew that I was out to take them out and kill them.

Do you regret calling Lydia names?
Absolutely not. She’s gross-looking and she does weird things and she hangs out with old men and she’s tattooed from head-to-toe and I think she’s disgusting. I have no respect for her.

It was the most memorable speech in "Big Brother" history, but fans didn't hear all of it.

Television viewers watching the "Big Brother 11" eviction episode Thursday only heard part of contestant Chima Simone's petition to stay on the voyeuristic CBS reality show.

This is an NYC Prep post.

BILLIONAIRE Pete Peterson is said to be "mortified" over the sneering performance of his grandson PC (above) on Bravo's "NYC Prep." "Pete is really upset," a friend said. PC -- whose official bio says, "Money, women and life's spoils are all he's ever known" -- is seen bragging and picking on younger kids. The insider added, "He was kicked out of several schools and the family cut him off at one point. He's doing this show to get an acting career." Good Luck! Last week, PC was spotted getting "super touchy-feely" with Barron Hilton at the Gramercy Park Hotel. A Bravo rep had no comment.

'Angela's Ashes' author McCourt dies in NYC at 78

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Frank McCourt, the beloved raconteur and former public school teacher who enjoyed post-retirement fame as the author of "Angela's Ashes," the Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of woe about his impoverished Irish childhood, died Sunday of cancer at age 78.

McCourt had been gravely ill with meningitis and recently was treated for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. He died at a Manhattan hospice, his brother Malachy McCourt said.

Until his mid-60s, Frank McCourt was known primarily around New York as a creative writing teacher and as a local character — the kind who might turn up in a New York novel — singing songs and telling stories with younger brother Malachy and otherwise joining the crowds at the White Horse Tavern and other literary hangouts.

But there was always a book or two being formed in his mind and the world would learn his name, and story, in 1996, after a friend helped him get an agent and his then-unfinished manuscript was quickly signed by Scribner. With a first printing of just 25,000, "Angela's Ashes" was an instant favorite with critics and readers and perhaps the ultimate case of the non-celebrity memoir, the extraordinary life of an ordinary man.

"F. Scott Fitzgerald said there are no second acts in American lives. I think I've proven him wrong," McCourt later explained. "And all because I refused to settle for a one-act existence, the 30 years I taught English in various New York City high schools."

A native of New York, McCourt was good company in the classroom and at the bar, but few had such a burden to unload. His parents were so poor that they returned to their native Ireland when he was little and settled in the slums of Limerick. Simply surviving his childhood was a tale; McCourt's father was an alcoholic who drank up the little money his family had. Three of McCourt's seven siblings died, and he nearly perished from typhoid fever.

"Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood," was McCourt's unforgettable opening.

"People everywhere brag and whimper about the woes of their early years, but nothing can compare with the Irish version: the poverty, the shiftless loquacious father; the pious defeated mother moaning by the fire; pompous priests, bullying schoolmasters; the English and all the terrible things they did to us for 800 long years."

The book was a long Irish wake, "an epic of woe," McCourt called it, finding laughter and lyricism in life's very worst. Although some in Ireland complained that McCourt had revealed too much (and revealed a little too well), "Angela's Ashes" became a million seller, won the Pulitzer and was made into a movie of the same name, starring Emily Watson as the title character, McCourt's mother.

McCourt's other books include "'Tis" and "Teacher Man."

German Teen pop sensation Kim Petras (16) used to be a boy!

German pop sensation Kim Petras is blonde, cute and just 16 - but she used to be a boy!

Kim has been tipped as the next big thing in Britain where her music is particularly popular.
Her new single ‘Die For You’ is the hottest tune on the UK's airwaves.
But at 16 she became the youngest person ever to have undergone a complete sex change and now Kim, or Tim as she used to be known, has attracted the interest of the British tabloids.
She told ‘BILD’ “The calls came all of a sudden. I am really well known in England. Meanwhile the paparazzi started camping outside my hotel door.”
Kim first recieved attention when she uploaded a music video onto MySpace in 2007. A year later she released her debut single ‘Last Forever’, but it is her unusual life story which has caught the public’s imagination.
Tim knew early on in life that she was really a Kim!
The schoolgirl from Bonn started hormone therapy three years ago. Her parents supported her, but not everyone had sympathy for the teenager who felt she was born in the wrong body.
She relates some of her experiences and anxieties in her songs.
She said: “Earlier at school people said stupid stuff all the time. But it’s different now. I’ve moved to a private school.”

In October 2008 she completed the final big step in the sex change procedure. “The complete transformation is behind me now. Since then I am an actual girl.”
And what about her love life? “I’ve been in love with boys since I first started school, but at the moment I am single.”

Monster Filmmakers to Tell Breast Cancer Story

The producer and cinematographer of "Monster" are taking on another female-themed drama.

Clark Peterson, who produced the Charlize Theron-starring Oscar winner, and Steven Bernstein, who served as its cameraman, will collaborate on "Decoding Annie Parker," a story of the discovery of the breast-cancer gene. Peterson will produce and Bernstein will make his directorial debut.

The movie centers on Parker, a real-life breast-cancer patient who believed her illness had a genetic component, and it weaves in the story of the researchers whose mission it was to determine the role DNA plays in the deadly disease.

Doctors dismissed Parker's beliefs, but she was ahead of her time: The group's research eventually led to the discovery of BRCA1, which is associated with breast and ovarian cancer.

Screenwriter Michael Moss, a doctor who knew of Parker's story from medical circles, is writing the screenplay.

The casting process has begun, and the filmmakers aim to shoot this year.

Peterson, who made his name on the 2003 hit "Monster," recently wrapped "Dear Mr. Gacy," a story about a real-life college student who became obsessed with notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy. The picture is expected to make the rounds at film festivals in the fall.

Bernstein's cinematography credits include "Like Water for Chocolate," "Scary Movie 2" and "White Chicks."


Lindsay Lohan loves dying her hair; NBC wants to send her to the 'Jungle'

Lindsay Lohan likes to experiment with her locks.

The actress, who is a natural redhead, regularly changes her hair colour.

‘It’s something I like to do,' she tells OK! 'I like to shock people.’

Lindsay, 23, has an on-off relationship with girlfriend Samantha Ronson, 31.


We could soon be seeing a whole new side to Lindsay Lohan.

Both the UK and US versions of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me out of Here! are desperate to sign the wild party girl as a contestant for the next series of their shows.

A source tells British tabloid 'The Mirror': "Lindsay's the perfect person for a reality show like I'm A Celeb. She's young, fallen and there's an element of tragedy in her life. Most people who go on the show are in need of a healthy pay cheque and also want to raise their careers from the dead. Lindsay is perfect fodder for the show."

The UK version has just started working on recruiting the new line-up and names in the mix so far include Samantha Fox and Brian Blessed. Meanwhile the US version, hosted by the UK's very own Myleene Klass, is approaching Lindsay's people to try to tempt her into the Costa Rican jungle at the start of next year.

The source adds: "This could potentially net her up to £250,000. She could certainly do with the money."

A rep for Lohan has dismissed reports saying she's "not interested".

Britney Spears death threats prompt fears ahead of Moscow concert

Britney Spears has decided not to bring her sons along for a brief tour stop in Russia this week after being inundated with death-threats via e-mail in recent weeks.

“Originally, both boys were to accompany Britney but she was against taking them because of these constant threats,” a tour spokesman has revealed to The Sun Saturday.

As a precautionary measure, Britney will apparently avoid staying in Russia. She will instead spend the night in nearby Finland and fly into the nation for the two concerts in St Petersburg and Moscow next week.

Sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, will remain in London with family members until their mother’s return.

japanese fan talks to dan and rupert on DH set.

A young Japanese fan got the chance to visit the Deathly Hallows set recently, where she met Rupert Grint (in partial costume as Ron Weasley) in the Hogwarts corridors. Rupert briefly spoke about Half-Blood Prince, including Ron and Lavender's relationship, and was kind enough to heed to a few of the fan's wishes.
