The father of Slumdog Millionaire child star Azhar Ismail has died of tuberculosis at the family's home in Mumbai.

Mohammed Ismail's premature death will inevitably fuel the controversy surrounding the fate of the slum children who appeared in the movie, which has grossed more than £86m worldwide since its release.

He died today in the new flat bought for the family by the trust set up by director Danny Boyle. Azhar, 10, was at school at the time and did not learn of the death until he returned home in the early evening.

The failure of the children to subsequently escape the slum life has been the subject of controversy both within India and abroad.

Ismail found himself at the centre of a media storm after he was photographed slapping Azhar for refusing to talk to journalists shortly after the Oscar ceremony.

Azhar later said that the image portrayed of his father was undeserved. "I was being naughty and he slapped me like any father would. I was the one who was wrong," he said.

Josh Hartnett and his gorgeous girlfriend, Norwegian model Sophia Lie, drop by the Thompson Chemists Pharmacy in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City on Saturday (September 5).

Josh, 31, and Sophia, 20, have been dating for several months now. They were spotted holding hands back in April.

A few months ago, Sophia shared her earliest fashion memory: “I used to go to the opera with my mom when I was five, and I remember seeing the beautiful gowns that the women would wear. It really inspired me.”

Merriman says he didn't hurt 'Tequila'



In his first comments regarding his arrest, Merriman says he did not assault the reality TV star and was trying to prevent Nguyen from leaving his home in an intoxicated state.

According to Merriman: "On September 6, 2009 the San Diego Sheriff's Department responded to a citizen's complaint that was initiated by Tila Nguyen (aka Tila Tequila). I was taken into custody based upon that complaint. At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided.

"We would all do our best to help a friend if we considered their actions to be detrimental to their personal safety
. I in no way caused any harm to Ms. Nguyen, however, paramedics were called and she was examined but no injuries were reported. She was released and has since returned to Los Angeles, California.

"There have been no charges filed against me. I want to thank the San Diego Sheriff's Department for their professionalism. I will continue to cooperate fully with the Department, and I look forward to clearing my name regarding these false allegations. I want to put this behind me so I can continue to focus on a successful season for the San Diego Chargers."

Neither Nguyen nor her representatives wanted to comment publicly.

Baby West, who weighed in at 9 lbs. and 21 inches long, is the first child for Shelton, 35, and her husband, producer Beau Flynn.

"She's an absolutely miraculous, gorgeous bundle of pure love," Flynn said in a statement. Mother, father and baby are "doing great."

The couple, who wed in 2001, announced the pregnancy in March.

Shelton recently starred in the CBS series Eleventh Hour and can currently be seen in the film A Perfect Getaway, while Flynn's producing credits include Requiem for a Dream and The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

22 years after death, Warhol's junk lends insight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A cardboard lid is lifted and four archivists peer inside. A postal box from Paris. Who sent it? A piece of crusty wedding cake. Whose? Another box: $17,000 in cash. Yet another: An autographed picture of a naked Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

These are some of the many items workers have uncovered as they sift through 610 cardboard boxes, filing cabinets and even a shipping container filled with what would be considered junk by most people but has a whole different meaning since it was collected by pop artist Andy Warhol.

The archivists, hired with $600,000 from the Andy Warhol Foundation and several other smaller grants, have six years to comb through everything from taxi cab receipts to fan mail, meticulously cataloguing, photographing and, when possible, researching the often bizarre items before entering them into a database.

"He really didn't like organization and there would be several boxes going at a time," says Matt Wrbican, who is overseeing the cumbersome project.

Nimoy won't return for Star Trek Sequel; Shatner has something to say about Chris Pine



At a Dragon Con 2009 panel discussion, Leonard Nimoy revealed that he will not appear in the follow-up to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. Appearing with William Shatner, Nimoy also took the opportunity to razz Shatner about his apparent disinterest in the movie.
There are no plans for me to return for the second movie. I think the Spock character is very well established as portrayed by Zachary Quinto. And I think if you saw the movie Bill, you'd say the same of Chris Pine.

Shatner's response? A curt "bulls**t."

Girls' Generation can't sing?



Turns out all you antis were right after all!

...SIKE!

For the 10th Anniversary episode of "Gag Concert" which saw many special guest appearances, Girl's Generation came on as guests for the 'No Voice' corner.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the show, 'No Voice' is a segment of the show where (normally) three guys go on and sing. Two of the three are decent while the third is completely off key.

So combine that concept with 9 (well, 8. Kid leader Taeyeon couldn't make it for the recording because of ChinChin Radio) beautiful women and what do you get?

Well... I'm not sure what to make of it, but the fans ate it up! The girls performed "Genie" first, and the crowd loved it so much they shouted for an encore. The girls answered with a performance of "Girl's Generation".

Daisy Lowe for Swarovski



Now that fashion designers are on television, it’s no surprise that models like Daisy Lowe are branching out, creating a jewelery range with Swarovski.

The British model has teamed by with the luxury crystal company for a capsule line which will be available from January.

She told W: “It’s four pieces—a necklace, bracelet, ring and set of earrings. They’re kind of magical in a dark, romantic way. I’ve incorporated black and white, star and moon crystals, and multiple strands of chains. I wanted it to be about the earth, moon, and planetary movements, all that kind of weird stuff.”

The 20-year-old star, who has modeled for Chanel, Vivienne Westwood and Agent Provocateur, also refused to rule out creating a clothing collection, but admitted she has no immediate plans to do so: “I’m so in love with fashion and playing with clothes, so I would never say no to designing fashion.”

Daisy isn’t the only model to show an interest in creating accessories—last month, Amber Le Bon revealed she was considering going to university to study jewelery making. She said, “You have to take every opportunity you can. I have loads of designs on paper and there is a really good jewelery course at London’s Central Saint Martins. A friend of mine has just graduated from there, so I may look into that.”

"Peter Doherty? Is that who you want to be?"



Pete Doherty wanted to kill himself when he turned 30.
 The Babyshambles rocker was devastated when he reached the landmark birthday in April, and got so drunk at his party he began to think he couldn't go on.

He explained: "I had this bash in Paris and it was an absolute disgrace. I just made a bit of an idiot out of myself. We had a right old knees-up. I don't even know exactly what happened but I ended up trying to throw myself off the top of the hotel. I wasn't happy at all about being 30."

Pete eventually decided to take his frustrations out on the catering staff, much to the dismay of his friends.

He revealed to Britain's Elle magazine: "I don't normally drink that heavily. But I went through a bottle of vodka. They presented me with this cake and I pushed it in the chef's face who'd just made it for me.

"Then the chef and the security guards were chasing me around. I think I escaped unscathed. It was hilarious. I had a great night."

ASkars and Evan Rachel Wood are dating


Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard are dating.

Am told exclusively by an infallible source that it’s been several weeks now. And that she flew to Shreveport, Louisiana on Friday to visit him. Skarsgard is there working on Straw Dogs with Kate Bosworth. Smart Evan. Kate has a way of throwing herself inappropriately at other people’s boyfriends. See Jim Sturgess.

As for Evan and Alex – they met, of course, on the set of True Blood, and were able to keep it low key, very underground while they were in LA, never venturing out to pap friendly locations, only sighted a few times discreetly, and so far the relationship is progressing well, they’re having fun together.

What happened with Shane West?

Came and went. Two individuals going in different directions. Shane is idling. This is not attractive in the end. Believe me I know. I’ve dated my share of losers.

And Alexander Skarsgard is not a loser.

Oh ladies. Don’t hate. And stop with The Swears. Let the Twi-Hards own the market on the crazy. True Blood fans are much more sane?

Bat For Lashes´ Natasha Khan Talks Lady Gaga, Tori Amos



There’s no doubt, in my mind, that Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan is one of this year’s biggest breakout music stars. Her second album, Two Suns, has actually exceeded the massive pre-release hype and her image has proven to be much more integral to her authentic aesthetic than the marketing gimmick that it first seemed to me. Now that she’s earned the buzz, let’s hear what Khan has to say about a few other top artists.

As if I wasn’t jealous of Khan enough, she told the Guardian she saw Michael Jackson in concert at nine years old. She was thrilled with Michael at the time, of course, but not so much with this year’s mainstream pop obsession: “People like [MJ] just have a high voltage running through them and you don’t see it very often. Compare it now to Lady Gaga or whatever – the latest all-singing, all-dancing sensation – and it’s like, ‘No! Not happening.’ It’s just bollocks.”

I’ve read of a bunch of interviews with Khan where she was very careful not to step on anyone’s toes, but those days are over: “I’m getting fucking tired of people saying that I sound like Tori Amos just because I play the piano,” she said. “It’s just so shallow and weird and inaccurate.” <—This.

ARCHITECTURE fanatic BRAD PITT has spent £50,000 building a bespoke run - for his children's gerbils.

The Hollywood heavyweight is fascinated by design and construction and personally oversaw every step of the project at his family's French estate.

It features a maze of tunnels, seesaws and platforms which makes the rodents the most pampered vermin on the planet.

In 2005 the Inglourious Basterds star had an informal apprenticeship with Frank Gehry - one of the world's top architects.

Brad helped design a development for the seafront in Hove, East Sussex, but it has not been built.

A source said: "Brad pores over architectural journals like other people pore over newspapers. He had so much fun putting the run together with his kids MADDOX, ZAHARA, SHILOH and PAX.

"It's incredibly complex and cost a lot but Brad's more than happy with any activity that can combine his two passions - his kids and architecture."

Luxo sues Disney over Pixar's mascot

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Luxo Jr.," the squeaky desk-lamp character created by John Lasseter more than two decades ago, is in the spotlight again -- this time under the glare of a transatlantic lawsuit.

The hopping swivel lamp has been a corporate mascot for Pixar Animation Studios since its founder created the character in 1986 for a short computer-animated movie that was nominated for an Academy Award. Lasseter was said to have based the character on his own Luxo lamp.

But Norwegian lamp maker Luxo isn't happy with how Pixar and its parent company, Walt Disney Co., are using its name.

Luxo filed a lawsuit yesterday in New York federal court against Pixar and Disney accusing the companies of infringing on its copyright by selling a limited-edition "Luxo Jr." lamp packaged with a Blu-ray version of the Disney-Pixar "Up." The complaint also cites a new attraction at Walt Disney World that is a six-foot animatronic version of the lamp.

Oslo-based Luxo said in the complaint that the Luxo name hadn't been used on Pixar and Disney products until now and that sale of the Pixar lamps would "cause devastating damage to Luxo and dilute the goodwill which Luxo has built up." The company, in business since 1939, says more than 25 million of the lamps have been sold.

A spokesman for Disney said the company had not seen the complaint and could not comment.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2009/09/luxo-sues-and-disney-over-hopping-character.html

What I want to know why the company is suing now instead of doing it when the short came out in 1986. I know Disney is selling lamps under the company name but the article makes it sound like the company and Disney/Pixar never had any involment with one another. This whole fuckery doesn't make any sense, my bb Russell thinks
EDIT: Okay, NOW I uderstand why they didn't sue before but I still think this whole thing is stupid.

Magazine Windfall Over Jackson Death: $55 Mil



By Dylan Stableford
The death of Michael Jackson has undoubtedly been the biggest celebrity story of 2009 to date. And, according to an interesting if questionable study, magazine publishers have cashed in to the tune of $55 million on the fall of the King of Pop.
The report, released by the Magazine Information Network, estimates that publishers have sold $67 million worth of Jackson tribute issues, according to Gil Brechtel, MagNet’s president and chief executive. But Brechtel revised that figure, taking into account revenue that would have been generated by publishers’ “regular” issues.
The $55 million is actually pretty small, when you consider that virtually every single magazine publisher – from Entertainment Weekly to People to Time to Us -- rushed to their own Jacko tribute to print in the hopes of capitalizing on collectors – the magazine world’s version of ambulance chasing.
The nameless Jackson photo gallery books that are still hanging in supermarket checkouts appear to be the most egregious – one even incorrectly lists American Idol judge Randy Jackson as Michael Jackson’s brother.
This isn’t to say I blame the magazine publishers for plundering the Jacko vaults -- they could use all the incremental revenue they can get.

Newsstand sales are down more then 12 percent across the industry this year, according to circulation figures released Monday. And advertising plummeted 27.9 percent during the first half of the year – a slide as slick as the moonwalk.

As grisly as it sounds, magazine publishers can only hope for more celebrity deaths to boost their sagging fortunes.

Oliver Stone's Hugo Chavez Film Makes Venice Premiere



Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez received a movie star welcome today at the Venice Film Festival, where he walked the red carpet with director Oliver Stone for the premiere of the documentary "South of the Border."

Hundreds of admirers, some chanting "president, president," gathered outside of the Casino for the leader's arrival. A few held up Venezuelan flags and a banner in Spanish that read "Welcome, president."

Chavez threw a flower into the crowd and touched his heart, and at one point took a photographer's camera to snap a picture himself. Security outside the Casino was tightened in advance of his arrival with military police checking bags.

Chavez praised Stone's work for depicting what he said were improvements made across Latin America.

"Rebirth is happening in Latin America, and Stone went to look for it and he found it," Chavez told reporters. "With his cameras and his genius, he's captured a good part of that rebirth."

Stone says "South of the Border" is meant to illustrate "the sweeping changes" in South America in recent years as a direct counterpoint to what some say is Chavez's depiction as a dictator by U.S. and European media.

Metallica: Not just for metalheads anymore, monkeys are fans too, a new study says

Animals prefer silence or sounds of their own species to human-made music, according to a new study published in the Royal Society Biology Letters and reported by the Discovery Channel. For some reason, that incites images of gorillas shaking their fists, screaming, "Will you kids turn down that goshdarn racket!"

What's even more interesting is that researchers found monkeys reacted calmly to Metallica's music, an apparently surprising discovery.

There appeared to be little explanation as to why the primates enjoyed the heavy-metal music. We're tempted to offer some guesses pertaining to the comparative intelligence of metalheads, but we don't want to insult any of our valued readers (or, for that matter, monkeys).

The research still doesn't explain why members of two different species can appreciate Metallica and why we cringe every time someone plays "One" on "Guitar Hero."

KStew and friends in Vancouver



Kristen Stewart’s hair. Her real hair. Still wearing the Joan Jett mullet. Love.

It is a wig, see?

It’s a wig with a dumbass hairline they put on every day for “Bella” instead of extensions. Given Stewart’s reputation for no frills, she would probably hate extensions. After all, Kristen Stewart is no Hollywood Ebola Hilton. Or Lindsay Lohan. Good.

But fack. Was that the best wig option available? Really?

Kristen went out yesterday with Nikki Reed and Elizabeth Reaser. Shopping. And still so pretty even though she looks like she’s wearing eyeliner that she didn’t bother washing off from the night before. Oh Girlcrush, please don’t change.

Hardcore Twi-Hards of course are complaining that she should never have cut her hair in the first place because girls should only have long bouncy ringlets. Girls should also avoid pants and only take jobs as secretaries.

But enough Twi-Hardery for now…

Because this is our first glimpse at Paris Latsis, former fiancé of Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton, the blackest of all vaginal viruses, now boyfriend of Nikki Reed, in Vancouver hanging out with his girl and her girlfriends. Judging from those sunglasses, the Infection still lingers. He’s probably wearing an Ed Hardy tee underneath that hoodie.

BREAKING NEWS

Kristen Stewart Hated High School



Kristen Stewart is pleased she shot to fame at a young age - because it gave her the chance to escape the high school she hated.

The actress' debut film role came in 1999 Disney movie The Thirteenth Year and she's since gone on to make more than 20 movies, including 2008's Twilight, which shot her to worldwide stardom.

Stewart carried on her studies during the first few years of her acting career, but then dropped out to pursue movie stardom full time - relying instead on a private tutor.

The 19 year old admits she was happy to put high school behind her - because she hated it.

She says, "I was glad to leave school. I couldn't relate to kids my own age. They are mean, they don't give you a chance. I think the social aspects, I haven't missed out on. I am around people constantly. I meet hundreds of people at work. Once you have done with school, you realised it's just a smaller version of life."

But the star still remembers the bullies who made her life unbearable when they found out about her acting.

She adds ,"When I was there, I was never the type of girl to be walking around talking about acting, so I didn't get a lot of hassle until someone found out. I was trying to play it down, but I definitely got, 'Oh she's such a b**ch.' They'd never spoken to me, but instantly they were like, 'You are so rude.' I am not rude."

Lady GaGa Did Cocaine to The Cure



Lady GaGa has revealed how she used to consume “bags and bags of cocaine” while listening to British rock band The Cure.

The Just Dance hitmaker, real name Stefani Germanotta, says she used to sit at home and snort cocaine on her own.

“My cocaine soundtrack was The Cure,” she said. “I loved all their music, but I listened to this one song on repeat while I did bags and bags of cocaine. ‘Whatever I do/It’s not enough.’ Isn’t that funny?

“At the time I didn’t think there was anything wrong with me until my friends came over and said, ‘Are you doing this alone?’ Um, yes. Me and my mirror.”

GaGa, 23, recently revealed that she isn’t keen on her fellow celebrities.

“I prefer non-famous people who have The Fame,” she said. “I myself don’t like celebrities. It’s the idea that you can be whoever you want to be. You don’t have to be a victim of your environment. You can become the image of yourself you project, [that] you could become in the future.

With all the uproar about Shawne Merriman's alleged attack on Tila "Tequila" Nguyen, sympathy naturally swung towards the tiny and seemingly helpless internet/reality "celebrity". But Amy Grindhouse took a closer look at the history of Ngyuen's twitter account to see what was really going on.

After calling the police and getting Merriman's side of the story, Nguyen denied his charge that she was drunk and he was merely trying to prevent her from leaving and had not hurt her. This is the conversation between them on the day in question:

and here's the specific entries:



This throws doubt on Nguyen's charges and support's Merriman's version of the events.

Jon on GMA





A couple of weeks ago, Regis suggested to Kate Gosselin that he believed reconciliation was on the horizon.  She just stared blankly and they mercifully cut to commercial.  Lest any of you are holding out hope, Jon Gosselin is crystal clear on the possibility of a Jon & Kate Plus 8: Together Again in a new Good Morning America interview (it airs tomorrow).

“Our relationship will never be fixed,” he tells ABC News’ Chris Cuomo. “… I don’t trust her anymore. I was abused … I was beaten down … I’m not going back to that life style.”

“She knows the truth,” he says. “I wish to God, she would speak from emotions … She’s not speaking from the heart. Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”

Ten TV Characters Who Need to Disappear For a While




Katherine Heigl (who still thinks she can be a big movie star after "The Ugly Truth") is taking a five-episode break from "Grey's Anatomy" in order to film a new movie called "Life as We Know It." Five episodes without any Izzie drama? That's like a dream come true. We'd love it if some of these supporting characters on other shows would also just give it a rest for five, 10, or 15 episodes.

'Twilight' fans can get happily get lost in corn

The second "Twilight" movie is arriving early in northern Utah, sort of.

The theme of Utah's largest corn maze this year is "New Moon," the sequel in the popular Twilight saga.

Although the movie doesn't arrive in theaters until Nov. 20, this 24-acre corn maze opens Sept. 24 and continues through Oct. 31.

Aerial photos show that two separate "Twilight"-themed maze patterns at Black Island Farms, 3178 S. 3000 West, have already been cut into the corn — a "Team Jacob" and a "Team Edward." (In the movie, Bella can choose Edward or Jacob as her boyfriend.)

The lettering "New moon 11-20-09" is also a part of the maze.

A side design in the corn depicts a KUTV reporter or anchorman holding a microphone. (IDEK)

GPS technology is used to cut the intricate patterns into the corn.

The idea of a corn maze is to enter and then eventually conquer the labyrinths by finding the lone exit. Getting "lost" is part of the fun.

Black Island is a working vegetable farm, with about 400 acres in cultivation, growing carrots, onions, cabbage, corn, pumpkins, squash and gourds.
Story continues below

Each fall, the farm hosts a Harvest Festival and Cornfield Maze — Utah agri-tourism at its best, with hayrides, bonfires and a haunted maze. The farm also offers a tour for schoolchildren and has a farmers market.

Last year's corn maze featured a Ronald McDonald House theme.

Manics + Shirley Bassey = fierce


Manics pen track for Dame Shirley

Welsh rock group the Manic Street Preachers are among a host of stars who have contributed songs to Dame Shirley Bassey's new record.

The Performance, her first full studio album for 20 years, also features songs by the Pet Shop Boys and Gary Barlow.

The 72-year-old last hit the charts in 2007, with an album of covers and remixes called Get The Party Started.

Her latest was produced by British composer David Arnold, who scored the last five James Bond films.

Dame Shirley famously sang three Bond themes - more than any other artist.

Talking about the new album, Arnold said: "All these songs were just songs, until Dame Shirley Bassey sang them.

"There's something about a Bassey performance that can knock the wind out of your sails, make you laugh, make you cry, let you in on the joke or be led to a more exotic place."

Bill on Regis and Kelly

Stephen Moyer, who portrays the handsome 173 year old vampire Bill Compton on Alan Ball’s hit HBO TV vampire series True Blood was on “Live with Regis and Kelly” on Monday, September 7, 2009. Stephen was absolutely charming and delightful to watch and reinforced what True Blood fans already knew; that he is an amazingly talented actor and very down-to earth and charismatic. Enjoy the video as Kelly has fun getting kisses from him.
