Naked Cowboy to run for New York mayor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A New York busker who calls himself "The Naked Cowboy" and entertains crowds of tourists in his underwear in Times Square year round has launched a bid to run for mayor.

"No one knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that's the kind of thinking I plan on sharing with my fellow New Yorkers when you elect me," said Robert Burck, announcing his bid to run against Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The long-haired, tattooed Burck has become a Times Square feature and said on his website that he plans to make an official announcement at his regular haunt on Wednesday (local time).

Dressed in nothing but a cowboy hat, boots, and a pair of white underpants emblazoned with the words "Naked Cowboy," Burck earns about $US1,000 ($1,200) a day with his busking.

Mr Bloomberg, a billionaire and Wall Street whiz, intends to run for re-election as mayor hoping for a third four-year-term.

He has already spent millions of dollars on his campaign, including on a blizzard of television commercials, while his only real challenger, the little-known city comptroller, William Thompson, has struggled to be heard.

Director: Thom Yorke Wrote New Song for New Moon Soundtrack

According to the film's director, Thom Yorke really did really did write a new song for the soundtrack to the Twilight sequel New Moon.

New Moon director Chris Weitz confirmed the news in an interview with HitFix.com that took place at Comic-Con. According to HitFix, Weitz will get his first listen to the track tomorrow. "Unless it's sounds of him belching, I think I'll put it in," Weitz said. To be honest, there probably is a market out there for sounds of Thom Yorke belching.

Oh and guess who else wrote a new song for New Moon? Bon Iver! "He says he wrote it for the film, but who ever knows if it might just be something laying around in his cupboard," said the director.



Pitchfork sounds pissed. And he "thinks" he'll put it in? oic.
..But, HELL YES, new song! NEW THOM YORKE SONG. Thanks, Thom!

Andrew W.K. Talks Childhood, J-Pop Album, New Album

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

After launching a music career built on positivity and partying, Andrew W.K. keeps busy by going in several directions at once. He is co-owner of lower Manhattan’s Santos Party House, has appeared in and supplied music for episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and recorded an album of J-Pop covers. He currently hosts a game show for teenagers called Destroy Build Destroy on Cartoon Network, and is putting the finishing touches on a solo piano album, ‘55 Cadillac, due in September.

TMN: What was the most terrifying moment of your childhood?

AWK: That depends on when you define childhood starting and ending. What age is childhood—is it until 21? I mean, the most scary moment of my life was September 11th. I was still pretty young then.

TMN: How did you pick which songs to use for your J-pop album?

AWK: Well, we actually asked my fan base in Japan to vote for their favorite songs, the songs they would like me to cover. What really appealed to me was that I had never done an album of cover songs. I’d only released a few cover songs before that and they were primarily released in Japan. I did a cover of the Mickey Mouse club theme song march—[singing] M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E—I did a version of that and I liked that

TMN: What can we expect from ‘55 Cadillac?

AWK: I can say right now that I’ve spent more time on the artwork than I did on recording the album. That was the whole point—to take a very scary step to see what it would be like to record something where you just sit down and play and you put that out.

I recorded for about two hours, then I picked the best of those two hours and edited it together....But I wanted to see what it was like to do a totally different album. I’ve played piano—that was the first instrument I ever learned—I guess for 26 years now.

When there’s that feeling of someone just playing for their own pleasure, that’s what I wanted to get in touch with. This one is just Andrew W.K. playing piano and seeing what happens.

Jackson Aliases -- The Plot Thickens

Law enforcement sources tell us they are finding a tangled web of aliases that doctors used to prescribe drugs for Michael Jackson.

As we reported Jackson used a variety of aliases to score drugs, including Omar Arnold, Michael Armstrong, Jack London and Peter Midani. We're told Jackson particularly favored the name Omar Arnold.

Here's how crazy it got: The L.A. County Coroner's office took Jackson's medical records from Dr. Arnold Klein last week. Law enforcement sources tell us, Klein used the name Omar Arnold on some of the files. We're told inside those files, the doctor refers to Jackson by his real name.

In several cases where Dr. Klein treated Jackson under the name Omar Arnold, we're told he sent the singer to the Spalding Pain Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills, where he performed procedures on Jackson, who was given general anesthesia. But the files at Spalding referred to Jackson by an alias other than Omar Arnold. Our sources say the doctor who runs the surgery center made it easy on the Coroner and voluntarily handed over the files in question.

Bottom line -- it's not that easy to track Jackson's treatment because of the phony names.

Phish is headed to the Coachella Valley for a three-day music festival all its own.

The Vermont-based band on Thursday announced the location of its first big event since reuniting earlier this year. It will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., home of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The band teased the Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 gig on its Web site for weeks with this cryptic message: "Save the Date."

"Festival 8" will see two Phish traditions: enormous outdoor festivals featuring marathon sets, and Halloween shows during which they put on a musical "costume" — playing an entire album by another band.

Blink 182's Tom DeLonge Out-Douches Self, Poses For PETA In Ad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tom Delonge of Blink 182 and Angels and Airwaves has joined a new PETA2 campaign urging people to have their animals spayed and neutered. The ad was shot by Bree Kristel Clarke and features Delonge with his dogs, Chloe and Grey, with the tagline "Have the Balls to Fix Your Dog."

He explained why he participated in the campaign:

It just ends up becoming a really sad state when animals are running around that have no families to be a part of. Spaying and neutering the animals keeps the happy animals with happy families and doesn't create too many lonely ones out there.

Jude Law smacks a photog, attorney says pictures are 'misleading'

Screen heartthrob Jude Law's hand made contact with the backside of a female pap's head, as he was leaving London's The Automat bar in London early Thursday.

The Alfie star, through his attorney, said he was temporarily blinded by the flash of multiple cameras and the incident was an accident. His attorney said that Law -- who was arrested on assault charges involving a photographer two years ago -- is innocent of any wrongdoing.

"This is all nonsense," his attorney said. "Last night's incident was an accident ... he apologized and left. Pictures of this sort can often be misleading."

The victim claims otherwise.

"He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger," 28-year-old Harsha Gopal said. "It was very sore."

btw, I saw him in Hamlet on Tuesday and he was amazing. Also walked by the theatre last night and drunkenly yelled at him while he was signing autographs. The wedding will take place in June.

New STARZ series - Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Spartacus: Blood and Sand


Betrayed by his country. Beaten into slavery. Reborn as a warrior. "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" is a graphic and visceral account of Rome’s most famous gladiator. When he’s separated from the love of his life, Spartacus is forced into the gruesome and bloodthirsty arena, where a grisly death is primetime entertainment. Spartacus must fight for survival, befriend his enemies and play politics in this new world of corruption, violence, sex and fame. He’ll be seduced by power and tormented by vengeance. But his passion will give him the strength to prevail over every obstacle, in this modern and uninhibited tale of death, honor and endurance.

Starring Australian actor, Andy Whitfield (McLeod's Daughters) as Spartacus, Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) as Lucretia, John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) as Batiatus and Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk) as Doctore, this unique mix of live action, graphic novel effects and brutal battle sequences is set to make "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" an epic television event.

Sugababes: 'We took our eye off the ball'

Hope you like words...

After a brush with self-doubt, the Sugababes are back on form. Keisha Buchanan, Amelle Berrabah and Heidi Range talk about their new album, Get Sexy – and reveal the truth about those breast-implant rumours

Collapse )

"We took our eye off the ball and didn't concentrate on the performance and styling side,"
says Range. Though presentation is a critical factor in a chart-pop band's continuing success these days, the trio confess they'd neglected it because, crazily, they assumed fans would want to hear them sing no matter how they looked. Buchanan sighs. "The industry is changing. We used to say in interviews that we could put bin-bags over our heads and people would still come to see us. But they wouldn't now. People want to see the whole package. They want to know all about you."

Collapse )

Such pragmatism is a Sugababes hallmark. They don't romanticise music; they're passionate about it, but are also acutely aware that Sugababes are a business, which entails taking hard-headed decisions. When they found themselves feeling complacent at the time of Catfights and Spotlights, their immediate reaction was to up their game. They signed to Jay-Z's stable of in-house songwriters and producers, Roc Nation, and decamped to Los Angeles to record the new album. "We were nervous at first because we were working with producers like [Lady Gaga producer] Red One. We sang on Lady Gaga's mike!" swoons Range. "This is our biggest break, signing with Roc Nation."

"And now we have 10-hour dance rehearsals with Beyoncé's choreographer,"
says Berrabah.
"We've pushed ourselves and stepped it up so much."

Prince, 12, watched Jackson die

MICHAEL Jackson's doctor made the star's son watch his vain attempt to revive him, Jacko's family said yesterday. They added the scene was "horrific and very traumatic" for Prince Michael, 12. But Dr Conrad Murray wanted a witness to his unsuccessful try at cardiac resuscitation.

Cops have pieced together EVERY SECOND of the last 12 hours of Michael Jackson's life, the superstar's family said last night.

Dramatic new evidence of the immediate aftermath of his death is also emerging.

And Jacko's relatives were said to be ready to launch law suits over the Thriller singer's "wrongful" end.

Many of the new developments surround Michael's live-in physician Dr Conrad Murray.

Jackson family friend Dr Steven Hoefflin said Dr Murray made Prince Michael watch him perform cardiac resuscitation on his prone father.

Respected cosmetic surgeon Dr Hoefflin, who treated Jacko for 25 years, told how the boy was "understandably traumatised".

Live 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' tell-all set for Montclair's Wellmont Theatre

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey,' from left, Danielle Staub, Dina Manzo, Jacquline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey," sans troublemaker Danielle Staub, will dish the behind-the-scenes drama at the Wellmont Theatre in November. Caroline Manzo, sister Dina Manzo, sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita and friend Teresa Giudice, will reportedly spill "juicy, never-before-heard details," though we can't imagine what's left after the first season, the two-part reunion, the lost footage episode and their recent publicity blitz. Their SAT scores?

Tickets for the Nov. 7 show go on sale Friday at noon; call 877-WELLMNT. Tickets are $27 to $50. Caroline Manzo and Giuicide are also appearing at BergenPAC on October 17 in a "debate" against New York housewives Jill Zarin and Alex McCord.


They are milking this for all its worth. And Danielle said that these ladies are trying to freeze her out. They wont sign their contracts until she's off the show. Say what you want about Danielle but she was entertaining. If they kick her off, i'm not sure it'll be that entertaining anymore.

You might have to say bye to 3 members of Real Housewives of New York


Things aren’t looking so hot for the return of the “Real Housewives of New York City.” Stars Jill Zarin and Countess Luann deLesseps may not be returning for Season 3, and the network is already on the lookout for their replacements, a source tells FOX411. Bethenny Frankel is already leaving the show to star in her own reality vehicle, “Skinny in the City.” Bethenny’s new show will cover her prepartion for her nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy as she continues to expand her small business empire in the New York.

Only Kelly Killoren Bensimmon is currently re-signed for next year. Contract negotiations are taking longer than expected, and maternal figure and heart of the show, Jill, is demanding the most money for her return to the show.

Earlier this month, Bravo decided they needed to start a search for replacements as the ugly contract dispute dragged on. The cable channel is casting for two very specific new women. The secret hunt for a “40-something mother with children heading to college” is on to replace Jill, and another young, sexy, single is being searched for to replace Bethenny.

A source involved in casting tells FOX411: “They are interviewing new women already. Jill Zarin is not bigger than the show. There is already one woman who could replace her. Bravo is completely prepared if Jill won’t lower her demands. Next season, the feel of this show is definitely going to be very different.”

Bravo is closer to a deal with Countess Luann than Jill, but the insider says they are willing to replace Luann if necessary, too.

Reality - it can indeed be a bitch.

Fox Would ‘Never Pass’ On ‘James Bond’; Wants To Eat Zac

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- If box office receipts for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” are any indication, the Comic-Con crowd loves Megan Fox – and she told Access Hollywood at the convention on Thursday that they wouldn’t be disappointed with this fall’s “Jennifer’s Body.”

“I think this is the perfect fan base,” she said. “It’s a horror movie, it’s a comedy, there’s lots of blood, there’s lots of gore, there’s lot of lesbian kissing. There’s everything you could possibly hope for in one movie.”

And while her character, a girl possessed by a demon is a literal man-eater, Megan said there’s one real-life guy she’d like to bite into.

“Zac Efron,” she said. “I think he’d taste like a strawberry cupcake.”

While she’s got plenty of projects on her plate – she stars alongside Josh Brolin in the upcoming “Jonah Hex,” which also did press at the convention – she weighed in on rumors that she’d turned down a role in the next James Bond film.

“I would never pass on a franchise like that,” she said, confirming the rumor was a false report. “Those are legendary, iconic movies. That’s obviously something I would love to do.”

No I.D. Talks D.O.A.

No I.D., best known lately as the producer of Jay-Z's new "D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)" single, recently talked about how they came up with the track, even saying that Soulja Boy was initially motivation. "Jay is the type of artist that can go so many directions," I.D. explained in an interview. [watch here] "It was me, Tim, Ye, Cool & Dre, Don Cannon and a deejay. The deejay said Jay needed a record like Soulja Boy got to get the kids." [watch here]

No I.D. goes on to say how Kanye worked with him to finish the song. "The energy shifted from Kanye, he was like 'Man, enough is enough.' But then I put the headphones on and started finishing the unfinished idea I had. And Kanye was like 'Put this in there, put this in there,' and soon as I played it, all the heads went to the 'Jay-Z pocket,' and Kanye said how the chorus should be, Jay just took it and came back the next day with the whole song...[The sample] was so unique and so emotional that I knew it would cause a reaction no matter what. I wanted to try to get as close to authentic 90's style hip-hop without being limited to the 90's style program of drums."

Time for the man who has mentored Kanye to start getting some recognition!

Judge: Katie Holmes "Put Herself Out There" For SYTYCD Performance

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Katie Holmes paid homage to the legendary Judy Garland in a big way on Thursday's So You Think You Can Dance, performing her much-anticipated song-and-dance tribute to "Get Happy."

"I don't think she's ever looked more beautiful," judge Mary Murphy told Usmagazine.com after Holmes' performance as part of the SYTYCD results show in Los Angeles. "She reminded me of regal Old Hollywood."

As Us previously reported, Holmes danced and sang to Garland's "Get Happy" from the 1950s musical Summer Stock, wearing an all-black ensemble similar to one Garland once wore. The routine was conceived by Emmy-nominated choreographer and Holmes' pal, Tyce Diorio.

At one point in the routine, Holmes -- who also pranced around in a black velvet fedora, nylon stockings and body-hugging skirt -- was lifted over three dancers' heads. For her finish, she tossed her hat in the air, and one of the other male dancers -- which included SYTYCD alums Mark Kanemura and Joshua Allen -- caught it.

Garland's son, Joey Luft, was in attendance at Thursday's taping and saw Holmes' tribute to his late mom.

"I bet Judy Garland's giving [Katie] a standing ovation in heaven," Murphy said.

Holmes signed on to perform for the show's 100th episode after judge/executive producer Nigel Lythgoe approached her to join the board of directors for his Dizzy Feet Foundation, which offers scholarships to underprivileged youth.

"She put herself out there and she didn't have to do that, so I'm very delighted in her performance," Lythgoe told Us of the actress, who donated her full performance fee to Dizzy Feet Foundation.

"I think it is important to experience music and dancing and singing and the arts and sports," Holmes said on the show. "This is the next generation. I think it is important to give them every opportunity to grow and discover what it is that they like and to have access to the best. "

After her TV performance, Lythgoe says Holmes has been bitten by the dancing bug.

"Katie's really taken to dancing," the judge said. "She is filming a movie in Australia and called me and said, 'I have found some great classes to take in Melbourne while I'm here.' She got really hooked on it!"

Real Housewives’ Kim ‘Feels Bad’ for Britney & ‘Understands the Fame’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kim Zolciak took a lot of heat — from her castmates and viewers — after the first season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta documented her rocky attempts at a music career and her relationship with an unidentified — and married — man she called Big Poppa. So why go back for more?

“I figured in the second season you couldn’t make me look any worse, so I might as well do it,” Zolciak tells PopEater.

The second Real Housewives of Atlanta season begins July 30.

With her newfound notoriety, Zolciak says she now has an appreciation of what it’s like for other celebrities. “I feel bad for Britney Spears,” she says. “I look at her and I’m like they just tear up one side and down the other! Then the next month, she’s doing so great. She’s lost weight. She’s a great mom all of a sudden. I kind of sympathize with her because I take a lot of that heat myself.”

Zolciak also identifies with Michael Jackson. “I understand the fame,” she says. “My life changed in such a short period of time, I can’t imagine what he dealt with. Sometimes, emotionally, it’s taken its toll on me, never mind him who is far bigger worldwide.”

In fact, her attitude can be summed up succinctly: “I look at it like negative press is better than no press,” she says of her critics.

“People write ‘Kim Zolciak sucks, Kim Zolciak is this,’ ” she says. “It’s like, really? Thank you for that comment. At least you’re putting my name out there.”

Similarly, her fame hasn’t stifled any of Zolciak’s opinions about her fellow castmates — specifically her former best friend (now frenemy) Nene Leakes. “I would love to get a hold of her ass,” she says, “but I don’t have time for her.” Still, she doesn’t wish her ill. “I don’t want to waste any kind of energy on her and what’s she doing,” Zolciak says. “I want her to be successful and rock on with herself.”

But that’s not to say there won’t be lots of ups and downs this season. “The drama is there,” she says. “It’s gonna be there. You put five personalities together that are as strong as ours, you’re gonna get a lot of chaos and drama. I think we all go through hard times and at the end of the day, we all come out smelling like a rose per se. Regardless of anything that’s gone on, we all end up respecting each other.”

Author E. Lynn Harris Passes Away At 54

Random House executive has confirmed to The BV Newswire that best-selling author E. Lynn Harris has died.

Harris was 54. He was currently on a book tour of the West Coast promoting his 11th novel 'Basketball Jones,' which involved an NBA player and his gay lover.

According to Essence.com, the celebrated author's personal assistant confirmed that his health had declined but would not provide any details as to what caused his death.

A cheerleading sponsor/coach for Arkansas and a passionate Razorbacks fan, Harris' books dealt with black, gay culture.

Most recently, the Detroit native served as a visiting professor for the English department at the University of Arkansas.

The former IBM executive just celebrated his 54th birthday on June 20.

Since bursting on the scene in the early 1990s with his seminal tome 'Invisible Life,' Harris steadily wrote page-turner after page-turner. And his biggest fan base was women. With more than four million books in print, he originated as a self-published author -- setting the blueprint for independent authors getting picked up by major book publishers.

"I think I've been a success because I write about things I'm passionate about and have something to say," he told BlackVoices.com last year. "I think people relate to me because they know I relate to them."

A longtime author for Random House, his titles include 'Just As I Am,' 'Too Good To Be True,' 'Abide With Me,' and his 2004 memoir 'What Becomes of The Brokenhearted.'


I loved his novels:(

First Look: Lucille 2 & Abdul on "Drop Dead Diva"

"Drop Dead Diva" is hands down summer's best new show thanks to its perfect cocktail of wit, charm, heart and brains. And it certainly doesn't hurt that "Diva" has lined up so many amazing guest stars, "Will & Grace" is crying in a corner over losing its crown. The two biggest names lending their star power to the Lifetime series are Liza Minnelli and Paula Abdul.

Now, PopWrap has your first look at the "American Idol" judgess, as herself in a Sept. 13 dream sequence when Jane is feeling a little blue. In swoops Paula, bringing along a few of the inspirational encouragements she perfected on the reality show. Here's hoping they have nothing to do with ripping off Jane's head and hanging it from her rear view mirror!

As for Liza, she continues her small screen hot streak -- "Arrested Development," "Saturday Night Live" -- as a sister-sparring psychic on Sept. 20.

Bradley Cooper Picks Up Another Beard

Bradley Cooper moves from Renee Zellweger & Jennifer Aniston to… Denise Richards!!

I have come to a consensus (amongst my multiple personalities) that Bradley Cooper is an extremely strange dude. Once, when I was covering some aspect of the Bradley Cooper-Jennifer Aniston mini-saga that occurred after they went to dinner once, I theorized that Aniston might want to pitch a film called The First Dater. In my mind, it would have been about a woman who goes totally overboard on the first date, and gives her datea timeline involving marriage and babies that she wants to adhere to. My concept for the film has changed. Now The First Dater is about a guy who goes out on one date - and one date only - with random forty-something women, all for his own amusement. I have renamed the film The First Dater: The Bradley Cooper Story. So Bradley’s latest first date is none other then Denise RichardsNow, I love me some Denise, but I acknowledge that she’s crazy and the antithesis of grace and class. Other than that, I think she usually gets a raw deal. But coming off Bradley’s first dates with Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger… well, this is going to get ugly.

Bradley Cooper’s love life just got a whole lot more complicated. Just days after his dinner date with Renne Zellweger - and Jennifer Aniston before that - he broke bread in Beverly Hills with Denise Richards!

The cozy couple shared a table at Il Cielo for almost two hours on July 6.

“They never stopped talking,” a source tells Star. “Denise was smiling at him, giving him her undivided attention.”

And Bradley dished it back: At one point, he even leaned over to wipe some sauce off of her face with a napkin! It’s enough to make you lose your appetite.

From Star Magazine, print edition August 3 2009]

My first two theories: that they’re working together, or that he’s gay and likes the company of experienced women who love their gay men. I checked - Denise and Bradley are not working together. So that leaves… yeah. I could totally be wrong. Maybe he’s just been secretly dating Lake Bell this whole time, and he’s just been going out with Jennifer, Renee and Denise for a little publicity. Or something. Yeah, I’m still thinking gay.


This dude is in denial!


Karen O's Score To 'Where The Wild Things Are' in New Featurette

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Spike Jonze's "Where The Wild Things Are" is down at San Diego right now where fans will be soon treated to what is likely new footage of the picture at Comic-Con 2009. To coincide with that event no doubt, Warner Bros. has released a new featurette (possibly the same footage the Con-goers are seeing?) of the picture with Jonze and 'Wild Things' creator Maurice Sendak.

It's a cute and affable clip that involves the director and author talking about the genesis of the book, how it wasn't well-accepted at first and how it took librarians and critics a long time to accept it before it became the bona fide kids classic that we all now know and adore. Scenes from the film are interspersed throughout the piece, and there are a few new clips and behind-the-scenes stuff later on that is pretty cool.

'Nightmare on Elm Street' Trailer Description from Comic-Con

Warner Bros. just debuted the trailer for the upcoming re-imagining of "A Nightmare on Elm Street," including a full look at Jackie Earle Haley in the Freddy Krueger makeup, at Comic-Con today.

The trailer starts with Freddy (still alive) being chased down a dark street by the mob that winds up killing him. He's shouting that he's innocent, but the mob corners him and burns him alive. As the flames come around him, he tears off his jacket, revealing the iconic sweater.

We hear the "One, two, Freddy's coming for you" song being sung by children and flashes of kids all around a graveyard. One little girl has the claws slashed across her dress.

There's a girl in her room, reaching for something on a shelf and suddenly's Freddy's head is there, staring at her from behind. A number of kids are shown, obviously under the effect of Freddy's dream powers. One seems to be having a seizure on a rooftop and another is trying to burn herself with a car cigarette lighter.

There's a basement, filled with pipes and Freddy moving through the darkness, getting closer and closer to the camera between flashes of victims before the logo comes up.

A Nightmare on Elm Street is set to hit theaters April 30, 2010.

Katherine Heigl: The Truth About Her Underwear

If The Ugly Truth hits it big at the box office this weekend, be prepared for a nationwide shortage of vibrating panties.

In the romantic comedy, Katherine Heigl plays Abby, a buttoned-up television producer who spars with a chauvinistic TV commentator played by Gerard Butler. In one scene, Abby accidentally finds herself being sexually satisfied by a pair of remote-control lacy underwear...during a business dinner in a restaurant!

While Heigl's work may not be up there with Meg Ryan's iconic pseudoclimax in When Harry Met Sally, she bravely shows no restraint in her moaning, groaning and body-trembling performance.

With that in mind, we thought we'd hit up some sexperts to get the inside scoop on the adult-only knickers, plus we find out which real-life celebs already own a pair or two…

"It's a fun secret that people don't talk about," says Kristen Tribby, education and marketing director of L.A.'s celebrity sex shop, Pleasure Chest. "They are good for things like boring holiday parties. It's a great thing for a couple in a playful spirit. It gives them a way to be exhibitionists, but in a discreet manner."

But you probably shouldn't take a cue from Heigl on locale. A quiet restaurant isn't the ideal place for public playtime, because they make too much noise. Instead, hit a nightclub. "The remote works form 35-40 feet away," says Jacqueline Deidun, manager of Lover's Lane, a boutique in Sterling Heights, Mich. "You can be on the dance floor and your man can be at the bar."

As for celebrity couples who already own a pair, Dana B. Myers of L.A.-based adult toy and accessories company Booty Parlor says she's provided panties for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott along with E! reality star newlyweds Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett.

So the next time you see them on the red carpet, it may not be their BlackBerry that's doing all that vibrating.

Gossip Girl producers to Hilary Duff: "You're too fat!"

Actress Hilary Duff, who will appear as a guest star on several episodes of The CW's R-rated young adult drama, has already found herself on the receiving end of sharp tongue-lashing from show bosses, who have ordered the 21-year-old to get to work on dropping the pounds.

Gossip Girl producers are reportedly concerned that the former star of Disney's Lizzie McGuire isn't waify enough to fit in with series skinny-minnies Blake Lively and Leighton Meester on the show's New York City set. "She's too big" a source close to the show says, "it won't look right with the other girls".

A Star source says: "Hilary is fuming. She's feeling insecure."

Hilary Duff will play Olivia Burke, a famous film star in search of the normal college experience at New York University, when the third season of Gossip Girl premieres this fall.

The fifth season of Supernatural will air on Living after Virgin Media scooped the rights to the cult show from ITV2.

The deal with Warner Brothers will also give the channel exclusive rights to a potential season six, as well as the right to air the first four seasons from August 1, it was announced today.

"As a strong and rapidly growing brand both in the US and the UK, Supernatural has had an awful lot of interest and, as the home of the best in paranormal drama, we’re thrilled to have secured it," said Amy Barham, head of acquisitions for Virgin.

The fourth season of the drama, which stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, drew an average audience of 870,000 during its run on ITV2, marking an 11.5% increase from season three.

Jeffrey Schlesinger, President of Warner Brothers International Television, added: "Living's enthusiasm to add Supernatural to its schedule convinced us that this would be a good move. Being able to schedule both the new episodes and the prior seasons already telecast simultaneously will allow Living to make the relaunch of the series in the UK a big event for its viewing audience."

The deal between Virgin Media and Warner also saw Virgin 1 extend its licence to season three and a potential season four of action comedy Chuck.

'Harry Potter' star Evanna Lynch slams 'Twilight'

"Harry Potter" star Evanna Lynch is not a fan of "Twilight" the vampire series and teen sensation.

And, in comments that are bound to stun fans of Richard Pattinson, Lynch says she doesn't get the big fuss about his Edward Cullen role.

"Get over it," she advises Kristen Stewart who plays Bella in the “Twilight” films. "She's always talking about how beautiful Edward is. Get over it."

Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in "Harry Potter," says she just doesn't get the appeal of the Stephenie Meyer’s epic vampire series.

Speaking to a Danish Web site kino.dk Lynch said “Twilight” doesn’t match up to “Harry Potter.”

“They are good books but I don’t think they are as fantastic as ‘Harry Potter,’” she said. “I don’t think they are that good, and for a time I was a bit, like, anti-‘Twilight.’ Everyone said it was the new ‘Harry Potter’ and I don’t agree.”

Paris and Prince tried to explain to Blanket that Daddy is dead

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MICHAEL JACKSON'S daughter Paris has fallen asleep every night since her dad's death clutching a doll he gave her as a gift.

The grieving 11-year-old holds the toy tightly in her bed because it still smells of her beloved father.

And her uncle Jermaine also told The Sun how Paris and her brother Prince Michael, 12, have had the heartbreaking task of explaining to seven-year-old Blanket that their dad is gone for ever.

He said: "Blanket is very young and so sweet - too cute for words - but he's very smart.

"I think he understands his dad has passed because of the ceremony. Paris and Prince are very bright and they have tried to explain it to him. And there is a therapist with them to help them get through this time as well.

"Paris sleeps with a teddy bear with Michael's scent on - it's so cute. It's a little doll that he gave her and she sleeps holding it every night."

The tragic and sudden loss of their 50-year-old father on June 25 left the children devastated - but Jermaine insists they are coping with their grief.

And he believes that is down to their happy new surroundings at the home of their 79-year-old gran Katherine.

They are constantly surrounded by many of Katherine's 24 other grandkids at the Jackson family compound - and the fun helps keep them smiling just as their devoted father would have wanted.

Jermaine, 54, said: "It's been very tough for them but they seem to be handling it well because they have children at the house to play with. My kids and other kids are always over.

"They are running around, they went to the cinema to see Ice Age 3 with my kids. They're healing slowly but they're having fun."

LeAnn Rimes and her gay husband split

LeAnn Rimes and Husband Are Separated

(Photo by: Denise Truscello / WireImage)

Four months after reports surfaced that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were allegedly having an affair, a source tells PEOPLE that the country singer is no longer living with her husband, Dean Sheremet.

"LeAnn and her husband have been separated for quite some time now, but they continue to try and work through their relationship," a Rimes pal says.

The couple married in 2002, when she was only 19. Last August (six months before their seventh anniversary), they threw a "Seven-Year Itch" party to, as Rimes put it, "remember how blessed we are."

News of their separation comes days after Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, said she and the actor were splitting.

"Eddie is a devoted and loving father first and foremost and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately for everyone's benefit," his manager said in a statement.

Cibrian, 36, who is joining the cast of C.S.I. Miami this fall, has denied he was having an affair with Rimes, his costar in the Lifetime original movie Northern Lights, which they filmed last fall.

In March, the Rimes pal confirmed the singer and Sheremet were having problems in their marriage, but maintained Cibrian was "not the cause," adding, "There have been issues brewing for months prior to meeting Eddie on set."

The couple's Nashville home is currently on the market for $7.45 million.
I love LeAnn Rimes.

It's time for a brand new issue once again, and this month we have an exclusive shot of Mr. Guy Richie's slickly styled Sherlock Holmes emblazoned on our cover.
Looking at the movie as part of our Smoking Hot Preview, we chatted to the steely-stared Sherlock, Robert Downey Jr., and Jude Law, who steps into the well-heeled shoes of his trusty side-kick Dr. Watson.

Unable to give away too much of the plot, the pair reveal a hint of what could be involved when Empire asks about the Victorian setting feeling surprisingly modern: "Everything was about to pop into the next realm, into... well you could call it the 20th century. But the way it really worked out is that everything was verging on this big expansion of information and technology... That's in the film too; the presence of that, and the harnessing of that. That's what their mission is about."

Megan Fox is hot in new horror flick Jennifer's Body. Just ask her."I think I'm pretty sexy in it," the actress, 23, said at the Comic-Con press conference for the movie (out Sept. 18). "The movie is SO sexy! You better put on your sexy shoes for this movie!"
In the film, in which Fox eats people, "there's sort of a hint of, a little bit of a lesbian relationship that happens. There's a girl-on-girl kiss. And beyond that, before every kill there is a seduction that occurs," Fox continues. "The boys have to be seduced to get in close enough to the dead girl in order for her to devour them."
Fox says she loved starring in the flick because "it's so unapologetic and completely inappropriate at all times."
"There are no robots to distract you from whatever performance I do give. So if it's terrible, you're going to know that it’s terrible!" Fox says. "That of course is intimidating, but I think the character was so much fun for me. And I wasn't really sure what I was doing. I was just trying to have fun with it.

Michael Jackson's hair to be turned into a girls best friend, diamonds


I had no idea they could even make diamonds out of DNA, but they can, and they are out of Michael Jackson's hair.

Some excerpts from the article:

"Yes you read the title correct, Michael Jackson's hair from the infamous 1984 Pepsi commercial debacle is going to be made into high-quality diamonds by Chicago-based jeweler Lifegem.

If you have not seen the footage click here for the youtube video. During the filming of the Pepsi commercial shoot, Michael's hair caught on fire and one of the men that quickly extinguished the fire was executive producer Ralph Cohen who placed the singed off hair into his jacket pocket where he claims it stayed for 25 years.

Recently the hair has found its way to collector John Reznikoff and is having round two with Lifegem turning famous musicians hair into diamonds(first being Beethoven's). When I state that Reznikoff is a collector, I do not mean of Michael Jackson memorabilia, I mean of famous icons hair. His collection ranges from Marilyn Monroe to Abraham Lincoln."

First off...The man kept his hair for 25 years....In perfect condition. Wow he must have made some mad money off of it. keep reading the rest of article

Why Did NBC's 'Kings' Fail? (Or Not)

I had the good fortune of going to an advance screening of the premier for "Kings"--a TV show based on the Old Testament story of David and Goliath and the succession of kings that follows--with the cast and writer, Michael Green, available for Q&A afterward. It was fantastic. And so were all the episodes that followed.

About mid-way through the season, I received an email from Michael Green who was writing to all the bloggers and reporters who had supported the show, thanking us for the good reviews, but informing us that, while the show would play out its full first season, that we would not see a second--the show had been canceled.

I felt beyond surprised and extremely disappointed.

Not only does the series have fantastic actors and looks amazing on-screen, it has something to please everyone: drama, romance, conflict, politics, war, a dash of fantasy, and, of course, all sorts of amazing, well-played out religious allusions.

This Saturday, July 25, the season finale runs at 8 p.m. All the episodes are available to watch online--and I can't recommend them enough. It's one of the best shows I've seen in years. And apparently, as its fan-base has grown over the second half of the season, NBC is now considering (emphasis on considering) ordering up a second season. Apparently, rumor has it, Kings is now on the bubble.

So my advice: Save Kings! If you haven't seen it, go watch. You won't be disappointed. You'll be riveted.

Single ladies: Why Kelly Clarkson's new song sounds a lot like Beyonce's Halo

If you've been listening to the radio lately, it's possible you've heard the soaring strains of Already Gone, the newest single off All I Ever Wanted. It's very likely that you thought you'd heard the epic song before, albeit in a slightly different form. Kelly Clarkson collaborated with Ryan Tedder on the track, a dramatic ballad driven by a pounding heartbeat, twinkly piano and swooping strings. Unbeknownst to Clarkson, Tedder used suspiciously similar elements when he produced another recent mega-hit, Beyonce's Halo.

Robert Downey Jr. signs on opposite Zach Galifianakis in ‘Due Date’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Hangover director Todd Phillips has just signed Robert Downey Jr. to star opposite his Hangover scene-stealer Zach Galifianakis in the comedy Due Date, which could begin filming as early as the fall. While the film has not yet been greenlit by Warner Bros., the studio is close to pulling the trigger, and bringing Downey on board will certainly accelerate the pace. The project centers on an expectant dad, to be played by Downey, and his unlikely travel companion (Galifianakis), who race cross-country in hopes of making it home in time for the birth of his first child. (Think Planes, Trains and Automobiles with Downey in the straight-man Steve Martin role.) Due Date was written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland, with a revision by Adam Sztykiel. Warners would ideally like to release the film next summer, taking a similar box office route to The Hangover, which has now grossed more than $240 million.

this sounds good, you guys got any hangover gifs??

Hilton: 'Paris is a character I made up'

Paris Hilton has admitted that her on-camera persona is a character that she has made up.

While filming her upcoming MTV series Paris, Not France, the Simple Life star said that she doesn't want the public to think of her as a "blond heiress airhead", E! reports.

She said: "In a way [the persona] is good, but I also don't want people thinking of me as this blond heiress… airhead. But that is kind of my brand. I make a lot of money by doing that."

The 28-year-old socialite revealed that she worries about misconceptions placed upon her from her infamous sex tape, adding that people perceive her "thinking I'm a sl*t and thinking I'm something that I'm not".

Hilton also explained that the makers of the documentary added in footage from 1 Night In Paris without her knowledge.

"I didn't know [the sex tape] was going to be in it. It's very tough... I can't believe they kept that part in there. I thought they kept that part out," she said.

It was recently reported that she never wanted the tape of her and ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon to be made public.
