Kate Moennig plays doctor in the first promo pictures for "Three Rivers"

The first cast promo shots for the former The L Word star’s new medical series, Three Rivers, were released recently. Can I just say, whoa.

The show follows organ transplantation from three points of view: the doctors, the donors and the recipients. Kate plays Dr. Miranda Foster, a member of the elite surgical team who has a rebellious streak and fiery temper. She also happens to the daughter of the revered surgeon the medical wing is named after. I wonder how wardrobe will accessorize that chip on her shoulder each episode.

Rounding out the cast are Alex O'Loughlin (Moonlight) as lead surgeon Dr. Andy Yablonski, Daniel Henney as womanizing surgeon Dr. David Lee and Christopher J. Hanke as the newbie transplant coordinator Ryan Abbott.

Well Look Who Stopped By 106th & Park

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Costars Sienna Miller, Channing Tatum and Marlon Wayans (pictured below) visit BET’s 106 & Park at BET Studios on Monday (August 3) in New York City.

IESB has an early review on the summer blockbuster: “Did I like it? Yes, hell yes! The movie is exactly what it needed to be. A non-stop fun action film for the 12-year old in all of us. The movie captured the essence of the original cartoon just as well as the first Transformers film did. Bottom line it worked great. The cast looked great, the costumes looked good on screen, the weapons were awesome and the story moved along pretty smoothly without any major plot holes. There were enough references and cameos to keep die hard G.I. Joe fans happy. But if this film is your first encounter with the Joes, no worries, it did a great job introducing the core team to newbies.”

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra opens this Friday, August 7th!

Battle of the Panic! at the Disco Bands

Not since the Soviet Union, or maybe the Gosselins, has the splintering of a once-mighty cultural behemoth left the general populace so confused. But hot on the platform heels of last month's announced split of Panic! at the Disco, the simultaneous release of tracks from remaining Panickers! Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith (off the Jennifer's Body soundtrack) and guitarist/songwriter Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker's new outfit Young Veins, hint at what is to come from this mitosis-like division. We ask the important questions so you don't have to:

P.O.S. New Music Video + Interview

First, if you do not remember P.O.S., here are a few posts as a refresher :: 1, 2, 3, 4

If you don't want to click the above links, the short version is that P.O.S. (born Stefon Alexander....P.O.S. meaning Promise Of Skill, Product Of Society, etc.), is a rapper signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment and a founding member of Doomtree. He's an extremely talented rapper with incredible style. Below is a new music video of his, an interview for a magazine he gave, and tour dates in which you can check him out !!

P.O.S. “Purexed” Music Video

"Purexed" is a song off his current full-length album titled "Never Better". This song is up there as my favorite track on the album. But of course, every track is awesome ! Give it a listen !

P.O.S. Interview With Fazer Magazine

P.O.S. himself grew up listening to punk and hardcore, living the punk lifestyle. Later on he realized that he could also use hip-hop as another avenue of expression and started to dabble in creating his own beats and rhymes. Before long he had completely immersed himself in music production, borrowing influences from the worlds of punk and hip-hop almost equally.

A self-described ‘rapper’s rapper’, P.O.S. has a no-nonsense vibe to his music and persona, while at the same time being able to stay light-hearted.

Aaron (Fazer): So I hate to say it but I know almost nothing, can you elevator pitch me?

POS: My name is POS; I’m a rapper from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Though I make music that is definitely hip-hop, it is very clearly influenced by and contains the spirit and feeling of punk and hardcore that I grew up on. Rap is what I’m in because I don’t need anyone else to help me.

Truly Outrageous

apparently, it's National Megan Fox Awareness Day

It's true, everybody! You can't have too much of a good thing.

Especially when that good thing looks exactly like Megan Fox. And drops wild nonsense in interviews, and walks around wet, and totally bends over in big dumb movies about robots, and then makes ballsy acting choices. Oh, and is Megan Fox.

So when certain sites declare they've had enough of a good thing and will abstain from Megan Fox today, we call bull on that. Unlike some, she's worked hard for her fame, and we're happy to have her chewing up pop culture scenery.

So E! Online declares Aug. 4 National Megan Fox Awareness Day! While others can't get their content up, we salute the sharp, unpredictable, lithe and smoldering starlet. And we encourage you to celebrate, too, in whatever way feels right, America!

cookie monster becomes hot topic on the view

For the ladies of The View, fighting is not a sometimes activity.

During yesterday's Hot Topics segment, the conversation between Whoopi Goldberg (apparently representing the Amish contingent with that getup) and Sherri Shepherd (who disappointingly failed to share her views on whether she believed a baked good could be flat) turned acrimonious due not to religion or politics but to Cookie Monster.

Tempers flared when the ladies began discussing Sesame Street's upcoming healthy eating PSA, in which the ravenous blue cutie is taught about the benefits of smart food choices by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and a particularly well-informed stalk of broccoli.

For the ad was Shepherd, who apparently blames C.M. for the poor dietary habits of our nation's youth. In the other corner was the Whoopster, who had this to say:

"Bull! I think it's stupid!...It's a puppet!"

Technically, Whoopi, it's a muppet, but we're willing to let that slide.

But a word of advice to Oscar the Grouch: If you see Sherri coming at you with some Prozac, run.


Watch it! I love the fact that they're fighting over COOKIE MONSTER of all things.

New Surrogates Posters Online

Some rather nifty new posters for Bruce Willis-starrer Surrogates have been released online, and while they lack any hint of Willis himself, they do have some stylish hints at the film's subject matter: robot 'surrogates' that live out our lives while saving us the hassle.

In the film's world, humans live in isolation and interact through these robots, but when someone starts murdering surrogates, Bruce Willis has to venture out to investigate.

It's all out on September 25 this year; in the meantime these I, Robot meets Blade Runner efforts should keep you going.

Jennifer Aniston Covers Elle September 2009

Jennifer Aniston takes the September 2009 cover of Elle

On being labeled a “lonely girl”: “I’m not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room. It’s fine. I can take it. If I’m the emblem for ‘this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,’ so be it.” (Jen< has recently been linked to Bradley Cooper following break-ups with Vince Vaughn, Paul Sculfor, John Mayer, and Brad Pitt.)

On helping others unlucky in love: “I support women, men, anybody who is in a place that’s not their strongest and who is ready to push forward.”

On using humor to get through tough situations: “I remember being 7 and asking my mom if I was as pretty as [my best friend] Monique. And with all the love in the world, my mom looked at me and said, ‘Oh, honey, you’re so funny.’ So, she doesn’t lie to me… She answers the question by not answering and instead tells me what she thinks is my greatest strength.”

Naomi Sims, the first black supermodel, dies of cancer at age 61

Naomi Sims, the first black supermodel, died of cancer Saturday in Newark at age 61, the New York Times reports.

Sims broke barriers when she made the cover of Ladies Home Journal in 1968 — becoming the first black model to do so on a mainstream women’s magazine.

It was a defining achievement for the “Black is Beautiful” movement at the time – and Sims went on to appear on the covers of Life, Cosmopolitan and Essence.

Raised in Pittsburgh, she came to New York at age 18 to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology and hit the pavement to jump-start her own modeling career. She became a successful runway walker for big-time designers like Halston and landed a TV campaign for AT&T alongside two other models, one white and one Asian, says the Times.

Upon retiring from catwalking, she started her own business making wigs for African American women after noticing a lack of products available on the market. She later expanded her business to include cosmetics and fragrances, and wrote advice novels, including “How to be a Top Model” and “All About Health and Beauty for the Black Woman,” published in 1986.

Today, two photographs of Sims hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Model as Muse” exhibition.

She is survived by her son Robert, her daughter, Betty, and her granddaughter.

Craig Ferguson: Late-night format is 'tired and old'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Craig Ferguson's refreshingly blunt (and enjoyably profane) take on the state of late-night TV at TCA ...

-- On his ambitions as a late-night host: "I don't want to be poor. I don't want to be rich to the extent where all I care about is keeping my job. I don't want to be frightened of getting fired. Do I want to make a lot of money? F--k yeah. I suppose I'd like to maintain, if I have any, some kind of integrity."

-- On ratings: "I look at them but I don't understand them. Do all ratings stop at 49. They do! I'm 47 so in two years I'm f--ked. Everybody writes about it like a religion. Here's what I do know: When Jay was shit-canned from NBC he was the leader in all numbers and they fired him. I want to keep my head down."

On his now-famous "Why Everything Sucks" rant: "That particular nugget of fury was just there in the moment. One of the luxuries of doing television every night is it's like you have an outlet to just broadcast your thoughts ... That's why I would never Twitter. I've got an hour to fill every f--king night. What am I going to say? Going to say things about things! ... it's very contemporary, a person just revealing his thoughts. It's the broadcast of unedited thought."

-- On the late-night format: "The format is tired and it is old. I'm another middle aged white guy telling jokes on TV in a suit. And that's tired. I want to mess with it."

-- Favorite guest: "Betty White." Least? "An actor whose name I won't say. So f--k 'em."

Anna Friel avoids negative press comments

PUSHING DAISIES star ANNA FRIEL avoids reading articles about herself - because she can't help obsessing over all the negative comments.

The British actress once installed a 'Google alert' on her home computer in a bid to keep up-to-date on press cuttings featuring her name - having every article about her automatically sent to her email inbox. But Friel admits she had to get rid of device when she started worrying about critical remarks.

She says, "I completely forgot about it until these emails started popping up.

"There can be great comments, but read just one negative thing and that's all you can think about. So I had to be strict and say 'Get that thing off!'"

Review: Jonas Brothers in San Jose


The screaming came early and often.

The fans screamed whenever any of the opening acts mentioned the headlining band’s name. They shrieked with joy when that band was shown in a Burger King commercial between sets. The tweens hollered with approval when text messages like “I luv Nick ;)” and “Scream if you loooove Joe” were shown on the overhead screen.

And then, as expected, the capacity crowd let loose a high-pitched cry for the ages when the Jonas Brothers finally took the stage on Monday night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

In all, the incessant screaming served to underscore one thing: The Jonas Brothers are the current kings of the tweeny-bopper music universe.

It’s amazing to see how far the brothers _ Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas _ have come in a relatively brief time span. They went from playing the Alameda County Fair in 2007 to headlining the Shoreline Amphitheatre one year later. That’s what happens when Disney gets behind an act with the same all-encompassing game plan it used for Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus.

This current tour represents the next step for the Jonas Brothers, who released their fourth studio album, “Lines, Vines and Trying Times,” back in June. The HP gig was a far more ambitious affair than last year’s Shoreline show. The siblings apparently wanted to deliver a true pop spectacle this time around _ one with enough bells and whistles to make even U2 green with envy _ and, for the most part, they pulled it off.

Three Stories from Saved By the Bell

by Mike Krumboltz

17 hours ago

Few TV shows enjoy such fantastic devotion as "Saved by the Bell." Never mind that it's full of horrible jokes, horrendous fashion, and the hardest working laugh track in show business. "SBTB" still inspires big searches... and big controversies. Here's a rundown of three scandals currently gripping the alumni of Bayside High.

The Screech's Book
Dustin Diamond, who played Screech, has had a tough go since leaving his hit TV show. There have been money problems, a fight to keep his home from foreclosure, and even (ew!) a sex tape. A tell-all book seems like a natural, and that's what Mr. Diamond set out to write. However his memoir about his time on "SBTB" has been dropped by publisher Gotham Books. Some say that it was because many of the salacious details were "unverifiable," a charge that Diamond's reps refute. Regardless, the book has since been picked up by a smaller publisher. Good thing, as Diamond owes some serious back taxes.

Belding Betrayed!
As played by Dennis Haskins, Mr. Belding was the clueless if lovable principal on "Saved by the Bell." He was no A.C. Slater, but he was still a key member of the cast. So, you can imagine that ol' Belding was a wee bit perturbed that he'd been left out of the recent People magazine reunion. New York Magazine reports that Mr. Haskins called into a Detroit radio show to "voice his displeasure." In the interview, Haskins referred to himself in the third person saying, "If anybody deserved to be on that cover, it was Dennis Haskins." While his feelings were hurt by the slight, Haskins wants his fans to know that Dennis Haskins will live.

Where's Screech?
Mr. Belding wasn't the only "SBTB" cast member to miss out on the People reunion. Diamond was doubly dissed. Not only did Screech not appear in the 2009 photo, he was also photoshopped out of the 1989 inset. New York Magazine, which is clearly all over the "SBTB" beat, dug up the original photo and discovered that Screech had been "erased" and cropped out of People's version. It's enough to make you almost feel sorry for the most annoying character in the history of TV. Almost.

Cheryl Cole: 'I want to break America'

Cheryl Cole has revealed that she wants Girls Aloud to crack America in the future.

The 26-year-old singer confirmed that she would like the girlband to be judged on their own merits across the pond rather than being compared to their Spice Girls predecessors.

Speaking to OK, Cole explained: "I think any artist would like to break America. If you break there, you can break anywhere.

"It's a big, big deal and a lot different to us. I'd like the success of breaking in America, but we're not the Spice Girls - we're not musically like them, we don't look like them."

Last year, Cole's bandmate Nadine Coyle claimed that the group are reluctant to try for success in the US, despite interest from labels there.

At the time, she commented: "Labels want to sign us. But we're asking ourselves whether we really want to start off from scratch doing all the crap to work our way up again or are we happy at the level we're at now - where we have a safe haven in the States where no-one knows who we are or what we're doing?"

X Factor judge Cole has also been tipped for a TV career in the States in recent months.

Nigella Lawson washes hair once a week

Nigella Lawson washes her hair once a week, it has been revealed.

The TV chef believes it is unnecessary to cleanse locks more often, insisting it is a myth than hair gets dirty in a day.

She said: "Hair-washing - I do not hold with it. Of course, I do not mean that I never wash mine, but I don't go along with this modern fad to wash it if not every day, then every other day.

"I am not simply a dirty, lazy slob - I just don't believe it is good (unless you are a purveyor of shampoos) to wash your hair any more than it needs. For me, that's about three times a fortnight, or was. Now it is once a week."

Nigella, 49, claims part of the reason she only rinses her hair once every seven days is that she usually takes baths and not showers.

The brunette added she might take to the shampoo more often if her locks weren’t so long, and admits she only recently invested in a hairdryer.

She wrote on her website: "I also can see that washing short hair is less of a bother than washing long hair. But even then, all my short-haired friends have hairstyles (which I never have had) and thus do styling and blow-drying - I only recently bought my first ever hair-dryer, and even then, I don't use it."

Taylor Momsen on set of Gossip Girl (August 4).

Courtney Love talks about her Twitter fight.

So what's with the Taylor Momsen Twitter feud?

Oh, I would NEVER pick on a little girl! No, no, no. Somebody fucking — I would never Twit THAT. It didn't make sense to me. Somebody took my picture down as well. I would never pick on a child. That's stupid. I've been around for a long time and she can fucking — I don't own blonde hair. But I will say that there's some sister-pop Perez Hilton-y duo [the Veronicas] and what they did is ... I personally Twittered them, about these four dresses from a vendor on Etsy, who had stolen some dresses from me. And I asked them to not physically wear these physical dresses. That's totally different. And they made those private Twits public. And it made the Australian national news, someone told me. I was like, "What? Over a dress?" That's retarded. Like, if it's a million-dollar dress, like my tampon dress, that's a different story. [Puts the cigarette out in the sink.]

What's your name, kid?

Mike. So if you're cool with Taylor Momsen, are you a Gossip Girl fan?

I've never seen it. It strikes me as stuff about the Upper East Side that I wouldn't want my daughter to be around. She watches it, I think. I mean, I think. She's familiar with aspects of it.

Sandra Bullock's "The Blind Side" Trailer - Michael Oher's True Story

The Blind Side" depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher (Aaron Quinton), a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys (Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw), a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher's presence in the Touhys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle. In the latest chapter of his inspiring story, Oher was a First Round draft pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, selected by the Baltimore Ravens. The Touhys were there to share the moment with him.

FYI, Michael signed a $13.8 million, 5-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last week. He's just begun his rookie season.

Rock the Bells Rings Loud in Canada


Rock The Bells rang throughout Vancouver this past weekend, when the hip-hop Festival pulled into Deer Lake Park, a great outdoor venue.

There was an air of sadness surrounding the event, before it even started, as early that morning I found out that Baatin from Slum Village had passed away. As of this posting, there are no details regarding his death. Nonetheless, respects to a legend, R.I.P. Baatin.

There were a few changes in the lineup. Canadians have come to expect this when attending a hip-hop concert. Customs can be a bitch to get through or – in some cases – not get through.

"Single Ladies" deserves Video of the Year, IMO.

Fox Television Studio’s new digital arm 15 Gigs released the trailer (above) to its steamy looking stripclub dramedy Tease today, giving us just a little hint of what they are up to with their stealthy new web television division.

The original series comes from creators Micah Goldman, Michael Wormser and Peter Marc Jacobson (who created CBS’s The Nanny). In what seems to be a more realistic take on the new-girl-turns-dancer story (compared to Atom’s Hot Sluts), this series shows all that juicy dressing room chatter that we never quite get to hear. Marie (Days of Our Lives’ Lisa Jay) is new to the game but is a fast study to the pros, played by Devin Kelley, Sarah Scherger, Samantha Cope and Crystle Lightning, who are joined in the series lineup by Mark R. Gerson.

Just like the Paris Hilton-Simon Rex pilot that’s been drawing lots of fan comments, it seems the Tease web series may be just a test bed for TV. Goldman told us that Fox is going to debut the show on Hulu and YouTube as a three episode web series, in the hopes of it finding a home as a traditional television show. The first episode will be released on August 6th, with the two following episodes “rolling out in the weeks after that.”

15 Gigs, who’s name we’ve learned is a play on “15 seconds of fame”, now has six original web series under its belt including The Skinny: Fat-Free News which was announced back in October of last year. Back then, 15 Gigs was just a “think tank” within the studio, later it would develop several other fairly high quality, but lightly-marketed series—When Ninjas Attack, Slacker P.I., The Iceman Chronicles, and Singledom.

Women Prefer Stephen Fry to Brad Pitt

HOLLYWOOD'S Brad Pitt may be drop dead gorgeous.

But when it comes to mating partners, he's no match for brain box Stephen Fry.
In a poll for Edinburgh Fringe Festival, women said they would pick the TV presenter's sperm rather than the actor's if they had the choice

At least 40 per cent of women in the poll to celebrate the debut of A Stroke Of Genius at the Pleasance Theatre sald they would prefer to equip their children with Stephen Fry's genes. 

Brad Pitt had only 36.7 per cent of the vote, showing they would rather their children were clever and witty than good looking or athletic
Asked 'whose sperm would you avoid at all costs', the late pop star Michael Jackson came out on top, followed by Russell Brand and Wayne Rooney.

9. GQ, June 2009: "When you think about it [actors are] kind of prostitutes. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone...It's really kind of gross."

CAMERON DIAZ will refuse to appear in a remake of THE SOUND OF MUSIC if it ever comes to fruition because she'd find it too daunting to take on the lead iconic role.

Dame Julie Andrews named the Charlie's Angels actress as her top choice to play Maria Von Trapp, the role she made famous in the 1965 movie.

But Diaz, who has worked with Andrews on two Shrek films, insists she couldn't possibly pick up the part - because she could "never follow an act like that".

The 36 year old is so in awe of the Academy Award-winning actress she wouldn't even consider the film if she was approached.

She says, "I don't know if I would do it because that is one of those awe-striking moments. Julie is amazing and I don't know if I could follow an act like that. I worked with her on Shrek. I got to spend some time with her during the press tour and she is just the epitome of grace and elegance so I'm very flattered that she even said that."


Forget Cameron, who the fuck would ever consider remaking Sound of Music???

Holiday bonus: my favourite Cullen

He’s much lower profile than so many of the others – at least on a day to day, week to week pap schedule. Love him. And it makes the holiday so much sweeter, especially since posting today ended up being more of a regular schedule.

Thanks to Dorin for these gorgeous photos of Jackson Rathbone on stage with his band 100 Monkeys in Dallas this weekend.

All over it with his hat on. All over it with his hat off. And imagine it’s you he’s staring at like that?

On July 24, Oakland’s Fox Theater filled to capacity with of Montreal devouts. Inspired by the band’s reputed avant-garde show apparel, admirers of all ages and mindsets came equipped with costumes of their own which not only required a lot of forethought, but also imagination. Well prepared for a night of non-stop celebration, the fans contributed their fair share by bringing loads of balloons and igniting the floor with a wonderment of bedazzled attire, aluminum foil hats and other mystical regalia.

Modest Mouse premieres "King Rat" video directed by Heath Ledger

Modest Mouse's much anticipated "King Rat" video premiered today almost 2 years after the video's director Heath Ledger and the band decided to collaborate.

Ledger met Modest Mouse's Issac Brock in January 2007 through a mutual friend while they were both in Australia, and the idea of working together on the music video for "King Rat" was then loosely chatted about. In a 2007 VH1 interview Brock said, "The idea sort of dropped, but then he just sent me an email saying that he wanted to do it."

Before Ledger's passing he mapped out the video concept and after his untimely death the unfinished animation was completed by the Masses, which is a film and music company that Ledger was a partner in. The animated video concept shows the roles reversed of the hunter and the hunted. Whales master the fishing boat, while humans are the catch. The whales bait, catch, and skin humans before selling the remaining body parts to be processed into seal food. The video aimed to bring awareness to illegal commercial whale hunts taking place off the shores of Australia.


Jessica Simpson does Glamour - 9/09

On her first post-breakup magazine cover — arrriving on newsstands August 11, Jessica Simpson opens up to Glamour Magazine about her relationships, body image, and her new VH1 reality series, The Price of Beauty.

Though the interview took place before her highly-publicized split with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, the 29-year-old reveals that she has no regrets about her nearly two year romance with Romo, saying, “I don’t regret anything I’ve gone through. I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope that my life, as it is now, doesn’t change. I’m very happy and comfortable — it’s a great place to be in. If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love [Tony], and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”

Jessica on Recovering From Her Divorce From Nick Lachey: “It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again,” she says. “It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself. Once you do that, you feel complete — and that’s the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person.”

Jessica on Body Image
: “It’s not fair that women look in the mirror and feel disgust because of what society has made them believe about beauty. I’ve been through it myself and understand the pressures. We’re all facing the same struggles together, whether you’re a celebrity or not.”

Jessica Explains Her Work Ethic: “I’m never going to be a woman who doesn’t work. At 12 I was emancipated from my parents so I could sign my first record deal. I think I was born working!”


Jill Sobule calls Katy Perry a "little slut"

Katy Perry sure knows how to ruffle feathers!

Singer/songwriter Jill Sobule has branded Perry a “f***ing little sl*t” for using the same title as her song I Kissed A Girl.

Sobule, 44, released a track called I Kissed A Girl in 1995. Perry’s track of the same name, released in 2008, became a major worldwide hit, and along with the United States, it has topped the charts in more than 30 countries, including Australia, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The tune also earned Perry a nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards.

“As a musician I have always refrained from criticizing another artist,” Jill told The Rumpus. “I was, ‘Well, good for her.’ In truth, she wrote it with a team of professional writers and was signed by the very same guy that signed me in 1995.

“I have not mentioned that in interviews as I don’t want to sound bitter or petty, because that’s not me.

“Okay, maybe, if I really think about it, there were a few jealous and p***ed off moments.

“So here goes, for the first time in an interview…

“F*** you Katy Perry, you f***ing stupid, maybe ‘not good for the gays’, title thieving, haven’t heard much else, so not quite sure if you’re talented, f***ing little slut.

“When her version came out I started getting tons of inquiries about what I thought.

“Some folks were angry and wondered why she took my title and made it into this kind of ‘girls gone wild’ thing.

“Others, including my mother, were excited because they thought I would somehow make some money out of it.

“Unfortunately you can’t copyright a title… bummer.”


Megan Fox flirting with Zac to annoy Vanessa

Vanessa Hudgens didn’t ban boyfriend Zac Efron from seeing Megan Fox — but she did “express concerns” to Efron about the Transformers star’s flirting.

Hudgens, 20, was recently reported to have barred Efron from speaking with Fox after the pair had a dinner date in July.

“Vanessa feels humiliated by what she perceives to be Zac cheating on her,” a source told the National Enquirer. “It stings so much more because Megan is one of the hottest women on the planet.

“Vanessa demanded Zac cut all ties with Megan and swore if he didn’t, they were finished.”

While sources close to Vanessa admit she’s not happy about Zac’s relationship with Megan, they insist she isn’t trying to keep the pair apart.

“The stories that she’s banned Zac from seeing Megan are nonsense,” a source said. “She’s expressed concerns to Zac and I think she feels Megan is only flirting with Zac to annoy her.

“We’ve told her there’s nothing to worry about. We think Megan fancies Zac but isn’t going to steal him.”

Megan, 23, recently said, “I’d like to eat Zac. I think he’d taste like strawberry cupcake!”

Rihanna will not be in court Wednesday when former boyfriend Chris Brown is formally sentenced for his attack on her, has learned exclusively.

The move comes on the heels of Brown’s public apology for his attack on Rihanna.

In addition, Rihanna will be requesting a less restrictive protective order against Brown than the one she currently has in place.

“I’m going to be requesting a level one protective order not to annoy, molest, or harass my client. This would be a step down from current order in which Brown must stay 50 yards away from my client,” the singer’s attorney Donald Etra told

In terms of court on Wednesday, he added: “Rihanna won’t be there.”

Brown is expected to be formally sentenced to five years probation, 180 days of labor oriented service, and one year of domestic violence counseling classes.

A new rumor has emerged the web: RiRi’s Mother reportedly made a statement. When she was asked about the Chris brown case, she revealed:

“I am devastated, but what can I do? Rihanna is a woman with her own choices and she became very, very independent. Chris has a strange power over her. She is still in love with him and he knows it. To my daughter, he’s a god. Even after all he has done, this has not changed.”

Josh Radnor's 'Happy' to helm 'Mother' star makes feature directing debut

(that's NPH as the clown btw.)

"How I Met Your Mother" star Josh Radnor has made his feature directing debut on "HappyThankYouMorePlease."

Radnor wrote the script and starred in the comedy alongside Malin Akerman, Kate Mara, Richard Jenkins, Zoe Kazan, Pablo Schreiber and Tony Hale.

The comedy follows the lives and loves of six New Yorkers not quite ready to embrace adulthood.

The pic was produced by Tom Sawyer Entertainment's Jesse Hara and Paper Street Films' Benji Kohn, Austin Stark and Chris Papavasiliou. Glenn Williamson, Peter Sterling and Bingo Gubelmann are exec producers.

Radnor worked on the script for several years, writing during down time from the CBS sitcom. Finding the funding was the next hurdle.

"I took meetings for a long time, and everybody said they loved the script and couldn't wait to see it, but did I have anything a little bigger, because this is a little small for us," Radnor said.

The funding came together in time for Radnor to shoot in New York during his series hiatus. He just wrapped and will edit while back to work on the series.

"The script had gained fans, and we got a great cast," Radnor said. "The hardest thing was switching back and forth from director to actor, though giving direction in the middle of those scenes gave me a weird and intoxicating sense of ultimate power."

Radnor’s repped by Gersh.

Step into the bathroom with Courtney Love ... IF YOU DARE!!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Courtney Love is moving to New York City. At least that's what she told us in the bathroom last night. At the premiere for It Might Get Loud — the new Davis Guggenheim documentary about Edge, Jack White, and Jimmy Page — Love pulled us into the Sunshine Cinema ladies' room for a cigarette and confessed her cross-country moving plans. (We did, for the record, voice our objections to being taken into the wrong-gendered restroom, and also to her smoking indoors, but Love scoffed, "Who's gonna stop me?" Certainly not us!) Possibly because she's moving to New York, she also squashed her Twitter beef with Taylor Momsen: "Somebody fucking — I would never Twit that ... I would never pick on a child. That's stupid. I've been around for a long time, and I don't own blonde hair." The complete transcript of Vulture's bathroom summit with Courtney is after the jump.

Jack White to release solo song

Is Jack White putting together a solo album? There's still no definitive word on that.

But the Dead Weather, Raconteurs and White Stripes member will be releasing a solo song -- and that's a fact.

According to various Internet reports including Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound, White's song "Fly Farm Blues" will be sold by his own Third Man Records.

The song was written specifically for the film "It Might Get Loud," a rock documentary that gets White, Jimmy Page and The Edge in one room to talk music and play together.

The song will be released digitally on August 11.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 Ratings Drop 61%

Jon and Kate Gosselin returned to TLC Monday night, but many of their fans didn't.

After a month-long hiatus, last night's back-to-back episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 brought in less than half the audience of the show's previous episode, which earned a record-breaking 10.6 million viewers. (In that episode, which aired on June 22, the couple announced they were separating after 10 years of marriage.)

Last night's first half hour, which featured Kate and the kids vacationing while Jon supervised their kitchen renovation, drew 3.9 million viewers. The following show, in which Kate went camping with the kids without Jon, was watched by 4.1 million.

Both episodes were also down significantly from the May 25 premiere, which brought in 9.8 million viewers.


GaGa is a Feminist...maybe not?


In a typically trippy interview, an in-character Lady Gaga, doing her usual sexy James-Bond-villain shtick, gives us some very mixed messages:

Thanks to Feministing for bringing this doozy to our attention! After drawling her love for gay men and penchant for marinating in monsters and playgirls, Gaga gets feisty. Asked whether her sexuality "distracts from her music," she fires back,

"You see, if I was a guy, and I was sitting her with a cigarette in my hand, grabbing my crotch and talking about how I make music 'cause I love fast cars and fucking girls, you'd call me a rock star. But when I do it in my music and in my videos, because I'm a female, because I make pop music, you're judgmental, and you say that it is distracting. I'm just a rock star."

But, when asked if she's a feminist, she replies, "I'm not a feminist - I, I hail men, I love men. I celebrate American male culture, and beer, and bars and muscle cars..."

Because, yes, young people of the world, feminism = man-hater. Also, beer-hater. Now, if she wants to "hail" them while they stride around in togas and laurel wreaths, well, then, I guess she may indeed have legitimate philosophical differences with the rest of the community. But as Feministing's Vanessa Valenti sagely puts it, "Good on Gaga for making a feminist statement, but bad on her for not owning it as one." Now, I'm not saying Gaga should be regarded as a feminist icon, but it would be nice to see someone in the public eye - with, by the way, obvious feminist views - use her pulpit to correct misconceptions rather than perpetuate them. She's right, though: her sexuality doesn't distract from her music. Her Rainbow Brite wig? Maybe slightly.

Man accused of stalking Miley Cyrus held in Columbia County

An Appling man who was arrested in June while attending a shoot for Miley Cyrus’ new movie in Tybee Island, Ga., was taken into custody today by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on a charge of criminal attempt stalking.
Mark McLeod, 53, was arrested “without incident” at about 5:15 p.m. at his home on Linder-McCurdy Road, said sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris. Tybee Island authorities had issued an arrest warrant earlier today.
Capt. Morris said he believed that Mr. McLeod, who was warned to stay away from Miley, was seen back in the Tybee Island area Sunday.
He is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center until Tybee Island police pick him up, Capt. Morris said.
“From what we’ve been told, they will pick him up in the morning and take him back to Tybee,” he said.
In June Mr. McLeod made “inappropriate comments” to young girls while attending shoots for The Last Song, according to Tybee police.
Mr. McLeod screamed obscenities as officers approached him and tried to head-butt an arresting officer as he was being taken to the patrol car, according to Tybee police.
He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct but was released from the Chatham County jail the day after his arrest because of overcrowding, according to authorities.
In the past, Mr. McLeod has showed up outside a Miley book signing event on March 6 in Manhattan. He professed his love to the teen star, whom he said he would marry in a video clip posted by the New York Daily News.
He also has said that the star communicated with him through secret messages in photos and her TV show.
Capt. Morris said previously that Mr. McLeod had no criminal record with the sheriff’s office. He was named a suspect in a 2006 stalking case, but no charges were filed, he said.

Christina Aguilera wants to have more children — but she’s worried it’ll ruin her chances of making a musical comeback.

The singer — who gave birth to son Max in January last year — recently set up her own radio station and has just signed to new movie Burlesque.

And Aguilera feels her schedule is too busy to factor in having another baby just yet — even though her hubby Jordan Bratman wants her to.

“Christina loves her family time with Jordan and Max and now she has a studio at home, being a mum and working at the same time is a real possibility — but she doesn’t know if she wants to give up her other pursuits just yet,” says a source close to the singer.

“She has just signed for a new movie and has her radio venture too, so she feels now’s not a good time to have another baby — although she would adore another one. Especially a little girl."

'Miss Landmine' beauty pageant cancelled

Tue, Aug 04, 2009

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - A BEAUTY pageant in which landmine victims were to compete to win a prosthetic limb has been cancelled after the Cambodian government said it was in bad taste, organisers said Monday.

In the 'Miss Landmine Cambodia' contest, competitors from around the country were due to appear in a photo exhibition opening on Friday in Phnom Penh, followed by an Internet voting campaign to select the best candidate.

'I'm not looking forward to breaking the news to the 20 candidates involved, as I know they will be very disappointed in the lack of support from Cambodian authorities,' Norwegian pageant director Morten Traavik told AFP.

He said the exhibition will not take place after Cambodia's Ministry of Social Affairs demanded cancellation of the contest to protect 'the honour and dignity of people with disabilities'.

However the contest, intended to raise awareness about landmines and empower the disabled, will continue with Internet voting at, Traavik said.

'The event as planned is cancelled... But the project moves squarely to website voting,' he said. 'I think it is regrettable that we were not able to show this project freely in Cambodia,' he added.

The first 'Miss Landmine' contest was held in Angola last year, drawing protests from rights activists who viewed it as exploitative and racist.

Cambodia remains one of the world's most heavily mined countries, along with Afghanistan and Angola.

Hundreds of people are killed or maimed every year by the millions of landmines and other unexploded ordnance still littering the countryside after decades of conflict.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen cancelled a Miss Cambodia beauty pageant in 2006, saying he would not allow such a contest until poverty in the nation was reduced by more than half.
