It's Almost October, That Means It's Time for Christmas Music!

Bob Dylan's Christmas Carols
Just the 30-second previews



Well, we certainly hope you didn't have anything important to do for the rest of this afternoon. Some benevolent person has uploaded to YouTube all of those 30-second samples of Bob Dylan's Christmas album that appeared for a short time on Amazon yesterday, and they are outstanding. As we'd hoped, the Andrews Sisters–style backup vocals and hilarious accordion make clear that this thing is probably intended to confound his more serious-minded fans, like Masked and Anonymous, that Victoria's Secret commercial, and every interview he's even given. Our favorite tracks: "Must Be Santa" and "Christmas Island," which we absolutely cannot wait to hear after a few glasses of eggnog. Enjoy!

Amazon.com is taking preorders

Christmas In The Heart is Bob Dylan’s 47th album. All of his U.S. royalties from sales of these recordings will be donated to Feeding America, guaranteeing that more than four million meals will be provided to more than 1.4 million people in need in this country during the 2009 holiday season. Bob Dylan is also donating all of his future U.S. royalties from this album to Feeding America in perpetuity. Songs performed by Dylan on this new album include, “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Little Drummer Boy” and “Must Be Santa.”

Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. As the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity, our network members supply food to more than 25 million Americans each year, including 9 million children and 3 million seniors. Serving the entire United States, more than 200 member food banks supports 63,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms. For more information how you can fight hunger in your community and across the country, visit www.feedingamerica.org.

Devendra Banhart Remixes Phoenix

I know what you're thinking: "Not another Phoenix remix!" But this isn't some random redo from an amateur Albeton jockey getting dumb with the "trance" presets-- it's from Devendra Banhart, whose freakish brand of folk doesn't exactly seem to mesh with Phoenix's perfecto pop on paper. But the resulting take on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix's "Rome" is refreshingly subdued. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN

Fran Drescher releases song, Britney and CBrown might not top charts



On Monday 28th Fran Drescher released a song on iTunes called "Eye For An Eye". For only 99 cents it can be all yours! click HERE (it will open your iTunes)

Last week Fran went to a bunch of fancy events for charity, dinning at the Clinton Global Initiative, where she met with icons of our time like Barbra Streisand, Brad Pitt, Alicia Keys and Jessica Alba, and then going to Vancouver to meet up with the Dalai Lama. At some point she also had lunch with Obama, Clinton and other presidents. IDK, her Twitter is pretty hard to decipher.

Disney Gives Away More Free Days in 2010!!

Breaking news…as we just announced on Good Morning America, if you give a day of volunteer service to a participating organization, you’ll get one day of free admission to a Disney Park. It’s a first-of-its-kind program we’re calling “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day.”

And yes, it’s that simple — a free one-day ticket to a Disneyland or Walt Disney World theme park for guests who volunteer a day of service to a participating organization. We’re celebrating you and the good things you do for your communities.
Our program officially begins on January 1, 2010. When it’s live, you’ll be able to visit www.DisneyParks.com or www.DisneyParks.ca and search for an eligible volunteer project. After completing the volunteer work, an e-mail will be sent from Disney with a link to print out a certificate to redeem at a theme park for a free one-day, one-park admission. And if you’re unable to use the ticket, it can be donated to a charity designated by Disney.
With this announcement, we’re looking for 1 million people with a passion to make a difference. And we’re working with HandsOn Network to do it. They’re helping make sure you find the perfect volunteer work. And many of the program’s volunteer opportunities will be for the family.
Also, you’ll notice that we’re raising awareness for grass-roots community volunteerism in more cities than just Chicago. Disney VoluntEARS are joining local volunteers in cities across the United States and Canada today. Work projects involving more than 1,000 volunteers are happening in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami and across Canada — Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver.
We’ll be posting more details about the program and how it may involve your city on the @DisneyParks Twitter account and right here.
Of course, there are some official details you should know about: Must pre-register and sign up for eligible volunteer opportunity at disneyparks.com. Ticket quantities for this program are limited. Must be at least age 6 to participate. Other terms and conditions apply. For details, see disneyparks.com in the United States and Puerto Rico. In Canada, see disneyparks.ca.

The Boston Globe talks to Paul Stanley, comments on KISS Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination



By Sarah Rodman

They've been extolling the virtues of all-night rocking and daily partying for over 35 years, and they're not done yet. Next Tuesday, the day after filling the TD Garden with its spectacle, KISS releases their first studio album of original material in 11 years, "Sonic Boom", exclusively at Walmart. Last week, KISS learned that, 10 years after their initial eligibility, they made the nomination ballot for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We chatted with Paul Stanley last week as the band prepared to rock Cobo Hall in Detroit, one of the scenes of their first "Alive!" album.

Q. Congratulations on the nomination. How are you feeling about it?

Alexa Chung in Paper Magazine

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Alexa Chung is the disarmingly cool host of It's On with Alexa Chung, the daily, live successor to MTV's flagship series TRL, which ended its ten-year run of hormonal mania and product placement last November. A model, journalist and television presenter from London, where she is well-known for shows like Popworld and Frock Me with Henry Holland, Chung is smart in a way that brings to mind former MTV personalities like Kurt Loder and Tabitha Soren, whose uncloseted braininess was front and center during the network's pre-Room Raiders heyday.

At a show taping at MTV's Times Square studio which features Adrian Grenier, Ashley Greene from Twilight, and Kid Cudi, Chung chooses to wear a Meat Is Murder (as in the Smiths) album cover T-shirt, a reference that seems relatively arcane for the Twitter-y in-studio audience. "People always assume that the audience is dumb when they're not," Chung says sweetly and matter-of-factly. "I think the idea of youth TV got shifted and everyone probably assumes that young kids only want to watch shit reality shows when that's not really the case. I think the audience is intelligent and there is definitely the desire to watch something that is a bit indie or irreverent or sarcastic." Her charming, unproduced demeanor, wry asides and inclination to undermine the format make for an almost retro product (even as she's introducing viewer photos of their "Worst Hairdos," submitted on Facebook). "I'm certainly not dumbing myself down for the show," she says. "I guess it's just about making sure that you're not being too much of a smartass about things."

LOL...Jon Gosselin FIRED FROM TLC



This just came across my Twitter:

In a stunning announcement, TLC said Tuesday morning that as of Nov. 2 Jon Gosselin would no longer appear on the popular reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8. The program would undergo a name change, to simply Kate Plus 8

The series first debuted on April 16, 2007, and experienced a ratings spike once the Gosselin marriage became troubled earlier this year. This past season the couple announced they would divorce.

The fifth season premiere attracted a record 9.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched show of that evening including those on broadcast TV.

But after a six-week hiatus from new episodes, only 4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Jon & Kate on Aug. 3, and only 1.7 million reportedly watched last Monday.

Kate Gosslin recently completed a stint as a guest host of The View, sitting in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck during her maternity leave.

Gosselin has also reportedly taped a pilot for a talk show costarring Food Network star Paula Deen.

Lady Gaga says it's unfair for fans to judge Kanye West for Swift dustup

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kanye West can rest assured that new tourmate Lady Gaga has got his back.

Gaga said on Monday that it was unfair for fans to judge West for his onstage confrontation with Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month.

"I can tell you that he's very sorry, and he made a mistake, and he knows it," Gaga told The Canadian Press over the telephone from Virginia, where the personable pop star munched on a bowl of cereal.

"But at the end of the day, he is a pioneer in hip-hop music, and he changed what hip-hop music means. And I think that it's time for everyone to kind of take their heads out of the newspapers and remember that, in truth, Kanye's making most of the music we hear on the radio today. "

"He has a tremendous effect on everybody's lives and I think it's unfair to judge a person by one thing that they said."


Though Gaga has offered her support to West now, what was her reaction in the moment when West wrested the mike away?

"It was: 'Oh jeez,"' she said.

Rod Stewart duets with Wonder, Hudson, Blige, and Robinson on new Soul Album!


Rod Stewart has put The Great American Songbook behind him. But on October 27, the British rocker will release Soulbook, a collection of classic Sixties and Seventies soul favorites.

“This is the album I’ve waited my whole lifetime to record,” says Rod. “These are the songs that I’ve danced to, made love to, cried to and yes, even fell on the floor to as a young man in the infancy of my career. These songs and singers were the oxygen that fueled my passion to sing. When I was a skinny, cocky, all-mouth and trousers teenager living in North London without two pennies to rub together, I discovered the artistry of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, James Brown, The Temptations, The Four Tops and so many more. They were my Gods and my heroes.”

Hip Hop Post



First, a letter from Nas to the youth of Chicago, in light of the Derrion Albert murder.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say, she say”!!!!! “I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest “n*gga” breathing. And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at. Look who’s watching us young warriors, look who’s throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors…. We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS….and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I’m with you young warriors. You’re me and I’m you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

This sh*t sucks !!

Jon Files Papers to Delay DIvorce


Interesting timing, don't you think?

Only moments after TLC released the news this morning that Kate is moving on with without Jon, In Touch Weekly is reporting that Jon has submitted court papers to suspend his split with Kate for 90 days.

Today, says In Touch, Jon submitted a document to a Pennsylvania court-approved arbitrator asking for the delay. “Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family — not destroy it.” 

Jon and Kate were due to be officially divorced by the end of November, but now he says, “I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated [on June 22]. I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.”

Jon's attorney Mark Jay Heller insists that Jon wants the document to be a sort of peace treaty: “He is hoping to inspire his wife to become less rigid, inflexible and controlling and open up. We’re hoping Jon and Kate can sit down together and start exploring what to do about their situation. Once they do that, the rest will fall into place.”

Bruce Springsteen to perform entire albums at last ever Giants Stadium shows

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform an entire album at each of their five Giants Stadium shows, according to Rolling Stone. Tomorrow Springsteen is set to play Human Touch, followed by Lucky Town on October 2 and then…

Ha! I jest, of course—though not about the Boss’ intention to run through an album on each night. In fact, Springsteen and crew will play Born to Run tomorrow, then Darkness on the Edge of Town (October 2), Born in the U.S.A. (October 3), Born to Run (October 8) and finally Born in the U.S.A. (October 9). These will be the last rock shows at Giants Stadium, which is set for the demolition at the end of the current football season.

Are you going to the shows? Or just bummed that you’ll be missing them? Is there anyone out there who actually would like to see Springsteen perform Human Touch from beginning to end? Let us know!

TV Guides's Top 5 TV Duos Who Should Do It

Benson and Stabler (Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni) garnered 18 percent of the vote to Chuck and Sarah's (Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski) 17 percent. House's Huddy (Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein) is the third couple voters want to see hit the sheets — for real, writers — nabbing 14 percent.

Users said The Big Bang Theory's Penny and Sheldon should be more than just neighbors, as the comedic duo followed with 11 percent. Rounding out the top 5 is Smallville's Chloe and Clark with 9 percent, beating out Lois and Clark, who earned 7 percent.

Lil Wayne Raps on New Weezer Album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

No matter what you think about Weezer in 2009, you have to admit: their new album, Raditude, has piqued your curiosity. I mean, just based on the insane album title and cover alone, right?

Now, one more reason to want to hear it: Lil Wayne raps on the thing.


According to an MTV News report, the rock-leaning MC lays down some vocals on the Jermaine Dupri-produced track "Can't Stop Partying". (An early version of the song appeared on the Rivers Cuomo vault-clearing comp Alone II last year.)

"Any other rapper would've just done, 'Yay, we're partying! Let's drink and have fun,'" Rivers told MTV. "But [Wayne] gave it the edge I was looking for. You can hear in his voice, it sounds so dark, like he was gonna get shot or something when he walks out of the studio."



Raditude is out November 3 courtesy of Geffen -- pushed back a week from October 27. As MTV reports, it also features collaborations with members of All-American Rejects and producers/song doctors Butch Walker and Dr. Luke.

Kristin says she shot down John Mayer, LOL WAT and says some stuff about ceiling eyes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Put the old rumors to rest, finally: Kristin Cavallari definitely isn't dating John Mayer.

In fact, Cavallari – who says she met the singer once for five minutes – now says Mayer asked her out, but that she shot him down.

"I didn't want to be another notch on his belt," Cavallari, 22, told Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM Tuesday.

The reality star, who repeated that she doesn't want a boyfriend, also debunked recent reports about what she is paid for each episode of The Hills, saying it's not true that she's paid less than Audrina Patridge.

And, speaking of Patridge, the antipathy you see between her and Cavallari is all real.

"I get along with everybody except for Audrina," Cavallari says, hinting that the animosity might have stemmed from the time she's spent with an ex-boyfriend of Patridge's. "I don't not like Audrina. I don't think she likes me."

Patridge being the bad girl on set is a far cry from public perceptions, where Cavallari is typically seen as the scheming troublemaker. She says that image used to hurt – and she even broke down in tears the first time she watched her own appearance on Laguna Beach when it premiered on MTV in 2004.

"I was really upset they portrayed me the way they did," she says.

Rolling Stone reports: KISS ALIVE 35 in Cleveland!



By D.X. Ferris

Halloween arrived early last night, when the KISS Army invaded downtown Cleveland, Ohio, for a sold-out concert at Quicken Loans Arena. The show was the second stop of the North American leg of the KISS Alive 35 World Tour, following a sold-out two-night stand in Detroit Rock City. The trek celebrates over 35 years of the international music icons.

With some luck, KISS will return to the city in a few months: Last week, after a decade of eligibility, the popular favorite received a nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is headquartered blocks away from Q.

The arena was dotted with convention-worthy costumes and fans in pedestrian fatigues and face-paint. Couples wore black-and-white Gene-and-Paul designs, dads and sons sported matching makeup, and an elementary schoolgirl looked so comfortable painted as Starchild you'd think she was at a Dora the Explorer Live! show.

As Paul Stanley proclaimed early in the set, "Tonight is all about celebrating the history of the band and the relationship with the KISS Army."

I've been supremely cautious about getting excited about Spike Jonze's Wild Things film because whenever I get excited about a piece of indy pop culture, crap like this happens. Witness badvertising at its height: a man-child suit, costing just $610.

Is Caprica A Soap Opera? A Sexy Scifi Romp? Posters Can't Decide

Here's your exclusive first look at six draft posters for Caprica, Syfy's Battlestar Galactica prequel series. Syfy has been testing out these posters, to see if people are more excited about the show's soap-opera elements or its weird-science ones.

A tipster (who fit into a key demographic that Syfy is looking for) took part in a survey in which he/she was asked about Syfy's programming — and because he/she expressed a lack of interest in paranormal reality shows, the questioning shifted onto Caprica, Syfy's big show premiering in 2010. The survey showed our source these six posters, and tried to suss out which of the posters resonated the most positively.

When Vampires Suck

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The recent Stephenie Meyer phenomenon of Twilight has raised some very divisive questions among fantasy fans. All debating over artistic merit aside, up for contention is the matter of exactly how many liberties an author can take with established monster lore. The concept of the vampire has been around for centuries, and the Twilight series seems to incorporate very little of it. Fine, so Edward Cullen drinks blood, is sort of ancient, and has a mild allergy to sunlight, but then again, so does Ozzy Osbourne. Few would mistake Ozzy for a vampire, and much fewer would mistake him for the lead in a romance novel.

Bella and Edward Go To Harvard…Sort Of

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Harvard University’s humor and satire magazine has a spoof of Twilight coming out entitled Nightlight. The Harvard Lampoon has been around nearly 300 years and was initially modeled on the British humor magazine Punch. They have done a parody of anything and everything. According to the description on Amazon.com:

“About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Probably the most famous spoof of the Harvard Lampoon was their 1969 spoof of Tolkein called Bored of the Rings. Many writers of the magazine end up on the sitcom writing staffs in Hollywood. Among their alums is Conan O’Brien.

Campbell Smith, New Zealand's Big Day Out promoter, said the Bowie rumours - which started spreading in the weeks leading up to today's first line-up announcement - were entirely fictional.

"I didn't think much of that at all," he said about the rumours. "It was obviously something that was born in blogland. People started reporting it, and believing it. He's not there, and he never was.

"I knew we had a good line-up without him on it and people would see that when it came out. It didn't bother me too much."

Today's first line-up announcement included Big Day Out regulars Muse, Dizzee Rascal, Lily Allen, Kasabian, The Mars Volta, Rise Against and Peaches, as well as first-timers The Horrors, Girl Talk and Mastodon.

Smith described it as one of the "most current" line-ups the festival has had in years. Neil Young headlined the festival this year, and Rage Against the Machine the year before that.

"I think it's a cool line-up because it's so current," Smith said.

"Every single band has an album out, Muse has the No. 1 album out right now ... it feels like the kind of festival that I went to when I was a kid."

Smith said Muse would be getting the "full production" because of their headline status, playing for more than an hour with a full stage production.

He also picked metallers Mastodon - who he said blew him away live when he saw them at the Coachella music festival earlier this year - and Dizzee Rascal would be "quite spectacular".

Smith said the local line-up - which includes PNC, Dimmer, The Checks, Kora and Minuit - was also looking good.

"It's a great haul of local acts. I'm really pleased we have Ladyhawke's only New Zealand festival performance for the summer, and new acts like Gin Wigmore - I'm looking forward to seeing what they do."

The Big Day Out is held on January 15 at Mt Smart Stadium. Tickets cost $132 (plus booking fee) and go on sale on Ocotber 9.

Khloe Kardashian Spent Five Grand on Her Hair for Her "Wedding"

Khloe's Wedding Hair -- $4,500 for Nothin'  



So it's Khloe's wedding day and she wants a straightforward 'do -- some curls, a few extensions, a little added volume -- no problem. That will be $4,500 please ... not including tip ... for a wedding that isn't even real.

According to her stylist Roy Arbib at Shampoo in LA, Khloe wanted to "keep it simple" ... so it's only natural that her wedding hair cost more than a used Honda -- or $4,500, to be exact. And that didn't include the $500 tip she left on her way out.

The swanky salon -- usually closed on Sundays -- opened up just for the bride-to-be and her three friends, who were styled for $1,000.

Good thing she kept things simple.

Polanski Said "Everyone Wants to Fuck Young Girls!!!

Roman Polanski: 'Everyone else fancies little girls too'



Having blogged about Roman Polanski’s arrest, I reread an extraordinary interview Polanski gave to the novelist Martin Amis in 1979, the year after Polanski went on the run.

The interview originally appeared in Tatler and is collected in Amis’s excellent book Visiting Mrs Nabokov.

Here’s a section of the first quote it contains from Polanski.

“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”

Thirty years have passed since Polanski said those words, so he’s had time to reconsider them. Whether he’s actually done so, we don’t yet know. Perhaps he still thinks it’s true that everyone fancies little girls, and that the press was exaggerating the enormity of his crime, and that all this somehow excuses his behaviour.

Later in the interview, Polanski says he likes Paris, to which he’d fled, because it’s “very grown-up”.

Unlike the 13-year-old girl with whom he admitted having unlawful sex.

Lloyd & Ciara are no longer friends

R&B singer Lloyd has cut ties with his high school pal Ciara because he's convinced finding fame has changed her for the worst.

The star befriended the Goodies hitmaker when they were both teenagers living in Atlanta, Georgia but Lloyd admits he has since lost touch with Ciara, hinting her ego has gotten the better of her.

Lloyd tells Hip Hop Weekly, "I don't f**k with Hollywood b**ches and she's like one of the chicks that's just changed along the way with the fame and the money and all of that.

"I don't really get down with her anymore on some real s**t. The truth hurts, but it will set you free. But I wish her all the best."

Photo finish for Khloe deal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Khloe Kardashian's LA wedding to Lamar Odom led to a fight over paparazzi pictures of the bride that threatened her $250,000 magazine deal. Bosses at OK! -- who planned to run their expensive exclusive tomorrow -- were fuming when the first pictures of Khloe in her wedding dress surfaced on Sunday. It forced them to spend a further $50,000 to buy the paparazzi shots to keep them off the market. Adding to the drama, sister Kim, the weekly's contributing beauty editor, then got on Twitter to gush about the wedding. A guest told Page Six, "There were so many helicopters overhead, you couldn't hear the vows. The Kardashian family had assured OK! the ceremony would be at a se cluded location, but in the end it was a circus." E! footed the bill for the whole affair and insisted it be held immediately so it could be featured in the season premiere episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" in December. A spokesman for OK! said, "Our exclusive will run as planned."

Brett Ratner to produce new Polanski documentary

Brett Ratner’s next movie just got a lot more controversial. The director of X-Men: The Last Stand and the Rush Hour movies is producing a follow-up to the 2008 documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, his publicist confirmed to EW. The film will be directed by Marina Zenovich, who directed Wanted and Desired. The news that Ratner would be working on a film about the in-the-news-again Oscar-winning director of Rosemary’s Baby and Chinatown was first reported in the New York Post.

Polanski was arrested this weekend at the Zurich airport when he arrived in Switzerland to be honored at the Zurich Film Festival. Swiss authorities, armed with a U.S. warrant, took the 76-year-old director into custody until he can be extradited to the United States to face sentencing in an infamous case dating back to the late ’70s, when Polanski was convicted of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl. The case was the subject of Wanted and Desired.

Ratner also recently joined several other directors including Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese in signing a petition protesting Polanski’s arrest.

`Sabado Gigante' actor arrested on child-porn charges

A Spanish-language television actor was arrested Friday for having child pornography, Miami Beach police said.

Adonis Losada, 45, is a regular on the popular Univisión network show Sabado Gigante, where he dresses as an older woman in the role of Doña Concha.

He was charged with 18 counts of possession of child pornography after detectives in Boynton Beach learned of the alleged illegal activity over the Internet.

Losada sent a picture of child pornography to a social networking site, according to a Miami Beach arrest affidavit.

Officers searching his apartment home found 18 images of child pornography on a hard drive, the report said. One of the images was the picture that had been sent on the site.

Univision issued a statement on the case Monday afternoon: ``We have been alerted to the situation. At this time we have placed him under suspension pending the outcome of the law enforcement investigation.''

Edit: thanks to childishfor the info
via miami herald:
They include pictures of children, some as young as 2, in sexual situations.

In a court document, police described a photo of a child younger than 10 being violated by an adult man.

``They're not good to see,'' Schiller said

Beating Death of Chicago Student Caught On Tape, Nas Writes Open Letter…



My Fox has obtained video of a fight between two rival gangs on Thursday that led to the beating death of a 16 year old honor student from Chicago’s Fenger High. In the video, Derrion Albert was attempting to help another student when he was hit in the head with a board and pummeled with fists while other students watched. Workers from a nearby community center came to the rescue when the fight was over but it was already to late. To date, three assailants have been caught in connection with the attack and all three have been charged with first-degree murder.

I watched the clip of the fight earlier and was truly disgusted. The video was posted so that the remaining suspects could be identified. In my opinion, the people who sit and watch senseless violence as it takes place without attempting to find help are just as guilty as those involved.
Nas has stepped up and wrote an open letter to the kids involved in the attack. Check it out below:
Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool. Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling , that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, fila’s , and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say she say”!!!!! “I’m from This block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest “n*gga” breathin. And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What r we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mind power to change they way we are looked at. Look who’s watching us young warriors, look who’s throwin us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Lovin to bury us in the ground or in jail were we continue this worthless war on one another. Young warriors…. We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz This movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, boys n the hood , blood n blood out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS….and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I’m with you young warriors. You’re me and I’m you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

X Factor: Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul Reunited?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The British hit X Factor is only days away from being a done deal here in the United States and there is a good chance that the love/hate relationship between Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell will move from the American Idol stage to the X Factor stage. Would you want to see them reunited?

Reports are that Simon Cowell has been working with FOX on getting X Factor brought to the United States and that it plays a big role in his future on American Idol. “Simon knew how much they needed him for ‘Idol,’ but there was no deal until they agreed to do ‘X Factor,’” according to a source.

The hit British show combines the favorite aspects of both American Idol and America’s Got Talent into one. Potential contenders - which can include groups — audition in front of the judges and an audience and are then put into categories which include boys 16-24, girls 16-24, over 25s and groups. There are four judges and each judge takes one group to mentor. The public will vote on the winner.

The announcement that X Factor is a done deal should come next week during Simon Cowell's birthday party. Will the announcement of Paula Abdul come at the same time? And does the US really need another reality, singing, talent competition?

Jessica Alba becomes a 'Little Focker'


 

Jessica Alba is becoming a Focker.
 

The actress is in negotiations to join the Ben Stiller-Robert DeNiro comedy "Little Fockers." She'd play the role of an attractive pharmaceutical rep whose looks wreak havoc on male characters in the story.

Paul Weitz is directing the third installment in the Universal and Tribeca Productions franchise. Universal is banking heavily on "Fockers," one of the studio's few go-to franchises. Production is set to begin in the next few months, with a 2010 release date likely.
 

The picture is expected to pick up where 2004's "Meet the Fockers" left off, with Stiller's Gaylord Focker and Teri Polo's Pamela Byrnes having a child (or children -- reports abound that they could be having twins). John Hamburg penned the latest version of the script.
 

The WME-repped Alba is set to star in the Robert Rodriguez thriller "Machete" for Sony as well as Garry Marshall's romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" for New Line.

TMZ just obtained the temporary restraining order filed against former "Terminator" star Eddie Furlong by his estranged wife -- claiming the actor threatened to hire people to beat her with "chains and bats."

In the documents, Rachael Kneeland -- who filed for divorce from Eddie in July -- claims Eddie "grabbed me, bruised me, pushed me, made threats of more violence, left messages saying he would hire people to come and beat me with chains and bats."

Kneeland also claims Furlong "is smoking cocaine and doing other various drugs. He is very unpredictable."

The restraining order was granted -- Furlong has to stay 100 yards away from Kneeland.

We're waiting on a call back from Furlong's rep.

Get off the sidewalk, Dan is behind the wheel !



Wonderin' what our man, DanRad has been up to while Potter is on hiatus? Learning to drive in Poole and crashing weddings!

~~~~~~~~~

During the current break in filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Dan Radcliffe has been taking driving lessons in the seaside town of Poole, England. Additionally, after being recognized by young guests at a local wedding reception last week, Dan was invited to join the party at the Harbour Heights Hotel.

According to a band member at the wedding:

"He seemed very happy and comfortable having photos taken and signing autographs. He was a thoroughly nice chap.

I just had a quick chat and he said he was down from London taking some driving lessons where it was quieter, and seeing a friend.

As you do at weddings they were dragging people up to dance and he was one of them.

He danced with the bride and was there until 1:30 a.m., joining in with everyone. He was so down to earth and friendly. He brought a bit of magic to the evening."




WTF? He's managed to turn into a 12 yr old with a beard in these pics. Dan, for the love of no God, get a bloody stylist instead of looking like a Beatle reject.

Letters From Hollywood: Roman Polanski's Rape Of Child No Big Thing

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Does being an 'artist' trump being a rapist?" asks Melissa Silverstein of Women & Hollywood. According to 138 people in the film industry who signed a petition demanding the immediate release of Roman Polanski from Swiss custody, yep!

And they're joined by another group of writers and artists Bernard-Henri Lévy is rounding up! On his roster: Salman Rushdie, Milan Kundera, Neil Jordan, Isabelle Adjani, Isabelle Huppert, Mike Nichols, Diane von Furstenberg, and Paul Auster, among others. As for the other petition (launched by French film industry association SACD), in addition to the signatories posted at The Wrap last night (Pedro Almodovar, Wes Anderson, Darren Aronofsky, Monica Bellucci, Stephen Frears, Tilda Swinton?!?), new big-name rape apologists are signing on all the time! Today, we can add Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Terry Gilliam and — wait for it — Woody Allen to the list.

Woody Allen, people. It would be kind of funny, if it weren't a big fucking list of celebrities who support a child rapist.

Also, let us not forget Whoopi "rape-rape" Goldberg, and of course Debra Winger's statement as president of the Zurich Film Festival jury. As Variety reported:

Winger... on Monday demanded Polanski's release and criticized Swiss authorities for their "philistine collusion" in arresting Polanski as he entered the country.

"This fledgling festival has been unfairly exploited, and whenever this happens the whole art world suffers," Winger said in a statement on Monday, standing together with the other four international jury members who wore red badges reading "Free Polanski" as they announced plans to continue the fest."

'L.A. Candy' to be turned into movie



Temple Hill Entertainment has acquired screen rights to "L.A. Candy," the bestselling debut novel by Lauren Conrad, ex-star of reality series "The Hills" and "Laguna Beach."

Temple Hill partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey ("Twilight") will produce. Conrad will be exec producer through her Blue Eyed Girl Prods. banner. The book, published in June by HarperCollins, has been on the bestseller lists of the New York Times for 14 weeks.

Informed by Conrad's experiences, "L.A. Candy" tells the story of a 19-year-old who moves to Hollywood, quickly finds fame as a reality series star and then has to deal with the ramifications of living a fishbowl life. Conrad plans to write two more books on the reality travails of protag Jane Roberts.

"Lauren, who became an icon in that reality show world, came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book," Bowen said. "We loved her take. Her book is an honest portrayal of what it must be like to set out to be normal, then sign on to become famous and eventually realize, wow, this isn't at all what I'd planned for myself."

Bowen said they will set a writer before looking for a studio/financier for the project, which was sold by UTA. Conrad will be involved in shaping the direction of the script.

Conrad's film deal comes the same week she launched a line of clothing for Kohl's.

Temple Hill is exec producer of the "Twilight" sequels "New Moon" and "Eclipse" and is producing the Screen Gems drama "Dear John," directed by Lasse Hallstrom and starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum.

EXCLUSIVE: Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriguez Call Off Engagement

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Rose McGowan has broken off her engagement to director Robert Rodriguez an inside source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

McGowan recently filmed Rodriguez’s action-packed Machete- which co-stars Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba and Robert De Niro- in Austin, Texas and will next star in the she-devil comic book adaptation Red Sonja. Rodriguez is set to produce the film so maybe a reconciliation isn’t completely out of the cards?

Reps for the couple did not immediately respond for request to comment.

The couple officially announced their engagement in October 2007 after becoming romantically involved in 2006 on the set of the Planet Terror segment of Grindhouse, which was directed by Rodriguez and starred McGowan as a stripper with a machine-gun leg.

It was widely speculated at the time that their relationship was the reason Rodriguez divorced his wife of 16 years, producer Elizabeth Avellán. The director later issued a statement saying that he and Avellán had separated long before production began on the film.

McGowan, 36, and Rodriguez, 41, went public with their relationship in May 2007 when they arrived hand-in-hand at the Cannes Film Festival. They have been together ever since, despite false rumors that they had split up last year after financing for a Rodriguez-planned Barbarella remake starring McGowan fell through.

'Criminal Minds' spinoff: yep, it's happening

CBS brainstorms 'Minds' spinoff




CBS will be doing some "Minds"-splitting this season.

The network is planning a potential spinoff from its hit crime drama "Criminal Minds" that will be created by the show's executive producer/showrunner Ed Bernero and executive producer Chris Mundy.

Mundy will be writing the planted spinoff, which will air as an episode of "Criminal Minds" in the spring, from a story by him and Bernero.

Like the original series, the potential new show would be produced by ABC Studios, the Mark Gordon Co. and CBS Studios.

Details are sketchy, but the spinoff is expected to feature a new team of FBI agents, not existing "Criminal Minds" characters.

The producers already have begun to send out feelers to talent agents about the types they're looking to cast.

The development pattern for a "Criminal Minds" offshoot mirrors CBS' template for successfully spinning off "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" into "CSI: Miami," which begat "CSI: NY," and "JAG," which spawned "NCIS" and then "NCIS: Los Angeles."

A "Criminal Minds" spinoff was discussed more than a year ago, but CBS focused on developing "NCIS: LA," which was introduced in a two-episode arc on "NCIS" in April.

"NCIS: LA" debuted last week as the highest-rated new drama this season with 18.7 million viewers and a 4.4 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic.

"Minds" also is off to a strong start this fall, winning Wednesday night with 15.8 million viewers and a 4.4/12 in 18-49s, the show's best demo rating in a year.

Bernero and Mundy are repped by UTA.

Hayden Panettiere has admitted that she is secretly worried that a crazed Heroes fan will stab her.

The actress - who plays a girl that is able to heal herself in the series - said that she has been concerned ever since the show began that a supporter who takes the programme too literally might one day go too far.

"I'm just afraid somebody's going to stab me one day and think that my power is real and they expect me to start healing. I've been thinking about that since the first season," she confessed to Showbiz Spy.

"I'm like, 'What if somebody really thought I was indestructible?' Because I've heard some wacky things come out of people's mouths that you go, 'Guys, it's not real'."

WTF: The Human Centipede



Unfortunately, this isn't about a feature film version of Rebbie Jackson's musical piece of art Centipede. I wish. No, this post is about a horror movie that is currently making people heave up their vitals organs and cry for their dealers on the film festival circuit.

Shock Till You Drop's got the synopsis:

Two American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany they end up with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day they awake to find themselves trapped in a terrifying make shift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. A German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins.However his three "patients" are not about to be separated, but joined together in an horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric system (yay, ass-to-mouth fusion!), in doing so bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy "the human centipede".

So all you whores out there better beware when you answer a Craigslist ad asking for "ass-to-mouth," because this could be what he's talking about! Bring some lip chap and a breath mint, because you could be there for a long ass time.

And this movie could also be called "Just A Regular Night At Russell Brand's House." Well, sans the whole "surgically attaching bitches to each other's gastric systems" thing. Sucio!

Kristin Cavallari regrets introducing Heidi & Spencer



Without the “The Hills” and that infamous Speidi couple, reality television would have never been the same. Fans and viewers have gotten the opportunity to witness a false pregnancy, multiple marriage attempts, and a variety of friendship and family wars — and it’s all thanks to Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.

This wild duo, who believe they are “Barack and Michelle famous" (er, at least according to the NY Post), have provided hours of entertaining — and sometimes excruciating — drama and comedic arguments for the MTV series. Unfortunately, the woman responsible for the creation of Speidi is regretting ever introducing them. "I want to apologize to everybody,” Kristin Cavallari recently told “The Hills After-show” host Dan Levy, “I had no idea what it would turn into." No need to worry, Kristin! We all love the crazy, bickering couple.

“The Hills” season premiere airs tonight, and we know there is much more in store from the “Speidi” couple. Whether it be tantrums stifled by jealousy or disagreements about starting a family, we can’t we to see what Heidi and Spencer will mix up next!

It’s wonderful that the conceit of this commercial is that everyone’s favorite linguistically challenged reality show competitor is making phone calls. How does she transmit the subtitles?

Oh, and Angelique would like everyone to know that you can follow her on Twitter @

Backlash to Hollywood petition demanding release of Roman Polanski



A backlash was growing last night against the actors and directors who leapt to the defence of Roman Polanski after his arrest on a child sex charge.

Celebrated cinema luminaries including Woody Allen, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese called for Polanski to be freed immediately from arrest in Switzerland on a US extradition warrant.


He is wanted for fleeing 30 years ago to avoid sentencing after admitting unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Lawyers for the film director have appealed for his release on bail.

Luc Besson, the director of Léon, however, refused to sign the Hollywood petition, saying that no one should be above the law, and Donald Tusk, the Polish Prime Minister, criticised his Foreign Minister for urging the director’s freedom.

Polanski, 76, is said to have felt no qualms about visiting Zurich Film Festival to pick up a lifetime achievement award, partly because his lawyers believed that he was no longer actively being sought. He faces a wait of up to two weeks to hear about bail, which legal sources said was unlikely.

Division Over Polanski Case



Reporting from Paris and London - Which of his films does Roman Polanski's life resemble most: "Rosemary's Baby," his horror classic about a devil whose libido is hideously visited upon an innocent young woman, or "The Pianist," his Oscar-winning tale of an artist who survives relentless state persecution?

Here in Europe, where the celebrated director finds himself looking at the world from behind bars instead of through a movie camera, it all depends on whom you ask.

To those in the arts community, especially in France where Polanski lives, he has been cast as a hounded hero whose arrest in Switzerland on Saturday smacks of something "frightening" about America. The same sentiment holds in Polanski's homeland, Poland, where a prominent group of Polish artists, writers, actors and film directors issued an open letter titled "Free Roman Polanski."

"What happened 30 years ago and the role Polanski played in it deserves negative moral evaluation," the letter says. "But we also want to point out that for Roman Polanski, leaving the United States was an escape from a court lynching."

Yet test the mood beyond the entertainment industry and sympathy for Polanski is far less forthcoming. In an online poll in the French daily Le Figaro, more than 70% of nearly 29,500 respondents said Polanski should face justice for his alleged crimes. And in Zurich, where police arrested Polanski at the request of Los Angeles authorities when he arrived to headline a film festival, 40-year-old Maja Tanner applauded the arrest.

Apparently, Kanye West's character-check getaway isn't going too well.

According to reports, the rapper showed up over the weekend to Common's highly publicized benefit show at the Hollywood Palladium, and threw another one of his egotistical tantrums backstage.

The rapper was allegedly upset over his not being offered food while in the dressing room backstage. After spotting a man eating chicken, West blurted, "Why wasn't I offered chicken? You want me to perform for free, [and] everyone is eating... why am I not eating?"

When the waitress explained that he never asked for food, 'Ye yelled, "Well, I'm asking now!". After receiving chicken, he allegedly proceeded to take a bite and then throw the rest in the trash.
Meanwhile, the rapper's beau Amber Rose, stood silent, while other celebrities backstage watched in awe.

Other guests that night included Nas, Ludacris, Mos Def, De La Soul, Heavy D and Queen Latifah.
