Katy Perry Returns as Host of EMAs

Katy Perry has been signed up to host the MTV Europe Music Awards for the second year running.

The flamboyant singer is also set to perform at the ceremony, which will feature stars including Green Day, Leona Lewis and Tokio Hotel.
Perry is also nominated against Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Shakira and Leona Lewis in the best video category for Waking Up In Vegas.
The awards gala is due to take place in Berlin on 5 November.
According to MTV, it is the first time a presenter has been asked to host two years in a row.
At last year's awards in Liverpool, Perry gained attention with her wacky costumes and sets.
The pop star opened the show astride a giant cherry Chapstick and at one point sat on a giant banana.
Perry, who also won the award for best newcomer, got through 10 costumes including a sequined dress bearing the face of President Barack Obama.
Perry is currently starting work on the follow-up to her Grammy-nominated album One of the Boys,.
Her single I Kissed a Girl sold more than four million copies worldwide.
Other award nominees for prizes this year include Beyonce with four nods, while Eminem and Green Day have three nominations each.


I know everyone hates her but she did a better job than Russell Brand at the VMAs. Plus I hope she rocks some more crazy Manish Arora outfits

New character introduced to first offical Winnie the Pooh sequel

A new character called Lottie the Otter is to grace the new Winnie-the-Pooh book, publishers have announced.

The much loved bear's new friend, who appears in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, is said to be a "feisty" character who will cause a stir.
The first official follow-up to AA Milne's The House At Pooh Corner, written in 1928, will reveal what happened next to Pooh and friends.
The book is due to be published on 5 October in the UK and US.
The book, which features 10 new stories, is expected to become available in 50 languages around the world.
Lottie, who will feature alongside established favourites including Tigger and Eeyore, is also said to be good at cricket and is a stickler for etiquette.
The book's author David Benedictus said: "Lottie the Otter truly embodies Winnie-the-Pooh's values of friendship and adventure seen throughout Milne's work, thus making the perfect companion for everyone's favourite bear."
Michael Brown, chairman of the Trustees of the Pooh Properties, added: "David's new stories, including the new character, arise naturally out of that world and so, like the original stories, are timeless.
"We hope the new character will appeal to readers of all ages worldwide."
The famous books were first published in 1926 and, in the late 1960s, were adapted by Disney into a popular series of animated features.

If Kanye West doesn't regret hijacking Taylor Swift, he will now -- we're told his concert tour with Lady Gaga was scrapped because ticket sales sucked. And "sucked" happens to be a nicer version of the word we were told.

And not only that -- our insiders say another factor in the cancellation was West and Gaga's people were at each others throats like their last names were Gosselin.

When it came down do it, we're told Gaga decided she'd be better off playing smaller venues ... and far from the headache caused by Kanye's ever present drama.


I didn't even know all the tickets were on sale yet...weren't the biggest markets supposed to go on sale today?

    Insane Five Minute Clip from '2012'

    Columbia Pictures has posted a five-minute clip of their upcoming release "2012" (opening in theatres on November 13th) on Fancast. Click the source/link below to check it out, or watch a medium-quality YouTube version following the link.

    '2012' clip on Fancast


    Here's the synopsis from the movie's website: "2012" is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day," "The Day After Tomorrow") and stars John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Thandie Newton, Danny Glover and Woody Harrelson.

    A shortened version of this clip plays before "Zombieland" and it looks amazing on the big screen. I think this is going to be one of the big hits of the fall. Oh yeah, and "Zombieland" was awesome, BTW.

    Jermaine Jackson to judge new dance show

    Thursday, October 1 2009, 10:45 BST

    By Dan French, TV Reporter

    Jermaine Jackson has signed up to be a judge on a new BBC Three dance show.
    The series, titled Move Like Michael Jackson, will see the panel search for Britain's most talented and original dancers who have the spirit, showmanship and technical ability of the late singer.
    Jermaine commented of the series: "Michael was a superb dancer who inspired people across the world to master his moves and create their own unique routines.
    "I'm really excited and delighted to be part of this show and look forward to finding the UK's most talented and inspiring dancers."
    Auditions will be held across the country during October and the six-part series will be stripped across one week later in the year.

    What is the point? And winning a bbc three show would be of no help to anyone.

    Father of the year has awesome friends.

    While the world and TLC is still reeling from Jon Gosselin's recent announcement that he wants to shut down filming of Jon & Kate Plus 8, his friend Michael Lohan tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that the reality dad wants out of his TLC contract to pursue a new show.

    “All I can tell you from my conversation with him two days ago is that he does want to pursue the Divorced Dads Club,” Lohan said. “Michael Heller, he and I represent Jon on a business level, wants him to do the show. Mark is trying to get him out of the TLC contract so he can.”

    Divorced Dads Club is a new reality show chronicling the lives of famous divorced fathers and would include Gosselin and Lohan as two of its stars.

    Lohan also revealed that TLC has been trying to force out Gosselin for awhile while keeping him on contract while they focus on Kate. On Tuesday, the network announced the dad’s role on the show would be limited and the show’s name changed to simply “Kate Plus 8.”

    “TLC has come out and basically cut him out of Jon & Kate Plus 8,” he added. “They’ve taken the step already to do so. But what they’re trying to do is cut him out, cut him out, but tie him up still so he can’t do something else, while they reinvent Kate.”


    It's war! Just two days after he was fired by TLC, Jon Gosselin is banning the network's cameras from his home, claiming the show is "detrimental" to his eight kids.

    This sign was posted Thursday morning on the front gate: "Notice: No film crew or production staff from TLC is permitted on this property under penalty [sic] of trespass. Johnathon [sic] Gosselin."

    Check out the embarrassing mistakes...the word penalty and even his own name are misspelled!

    Just hours after TLC announced they were removing his name from the show's title, Gosselin's attorney fired off a letter to the cable network, threatening to call the cops if anyone from TLC tries to enter.

    "In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."

    It's tough talk from the man who, just a few weeks ago, said the camera guys were like family: "They love the camera crews, they love those guys, they make nicknames for them."

    Kate Gosselin says she's "saddened" and "confused" by Jon's statements. "It appears that Jon's priority is Jon and his interests."

    TLC is hitting back hard, issuing a statement calling Gosselin's behavior "Erratic," "disappointing," "self destructive," and "unprofessional."

    "His latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and clearly opportunistic."

    So where was Jon Gosselin as the drama was unfolding? He was partying at a Los Angeles nightclub with, of all people, Girls Gone Wild king of sleaze, Joe Francis!

    The duo got into a stretch limo with two blondes following right behind them.


    Matthew Morrison interview (with a HUGE Glee spoiler)

    Matthew Morrison has left Broadway for primetime. The Tony-nominated song and dance man stars in the hotly anticipated new Fox series Glee as the director of a high school glee club.

    Created by Nip/Tuck helmer Ryan Murphy, Glee is sort of the dark side of High School Musical, where hardly anybody is perfect. Parade.com's Jeanne Wolf found out why Morrison is ready to go for ratings instead of ticket sales.

    Queen Beyonce Takes Over Singapore, Remains on Throne While Doing So.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    She visited the kids in the cancer ward this afternoon before F1 in Singapore. (: It was really sweet of her. And the ward invited a few previous patients and a lot of current patients and their family to see her. She even signed a few autographs and went to talk to a few of the patients in the ward. There were a lot of people singing along and screaming, it was so funny! The doctors and nurses I think were the most excited.



    Later that night she performed at F1 Rocks. She performed such hits as "Naughty Girl", "Single Ladies", "Halo", "Irreplaceable" and more.

    Beyonce Wins Video of the Year Again. I Remain Unsurprised But Happy.

    Here is the video of Beyonce's acceptance speech at the Mobo Awards in Glasgow, Scotland that took place last night. As you can hear, the crowd was a bit disappointed that Beyonce couldn't be there.

    In case you are losing count, Beyonce has won Video of the year at the BET Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and Mobo Awards, here's hoping she'll win at the MTV Europe Music Awards as well.

    Lady Gaga said today that both she and Kanye West made the decision to cancel the "Fame Kills" tour, and that she will be embarking on her own headlining tour soon, while West plans to drop out of the spotlight.

    "It was a mutual decision," Gaga said as she arrived for the Billboard Women in Music Event, where she is receiving this years Rising Star Award. "Kanye's going to take some time off. But the good news is that I'm going on tour in a few weeks."

    Lori Ann Gibson, Gaga's longtime choreographer who was working on moves for the shows with the singer, claimed on her Twitter feed that "creative differences" between the Gaga and West led to the tour's abrupt demise.

    The cancellation comes just days after the two pop stars announced the dates for an arena tour that was to kick off next month.

    Live Nation announced the news on Thursday. The tour promoter says refunds will be issued.

    The cancellation comes on the heels of waves of negative publicity for West, following his interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.

    Brussss Launches Jersey Stand With New Song

    Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band kicked off their five-night Giants Stadium stand last night with a brand new song called “Wrecking Ball” — a tribute to the venue that’s months away from being demolished. In the surprisingly poignant track, Springsteen takes the voice of the gigantic concrete structure (”I was raised out of steel in the swamps of Jersey… I’ve seen champions come and go”) but was also clearly singing about his own life just days after his sixtieth birthday.

    New Thom Yorke/Flea Band to Play Surprise Los Angeles Gig Tonight

    Last week, if you told me Thom Yorke was going to debut his still-nameless new band with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers the same day Kid A was named Best Album of the Decade by some website, I probably would have directed you to WeeklyWorldNews.com.

    Tickets for the gig go on sale at noon Pacific Time-- check here for more info. The band is set to play two more L.A. gigs at the Orpheum Theatre on October 4 and 5.

    Rachel Bilson Cast In HIMYM

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    In what could turn out to be the mother of all casting scoops, Rachel Bilson has landed a pivotal — some would say legendary — role in How I Met Your Mother’s 100th episode.

    Last month, exec producer Craig Thomas told me that the milestone episode (airing in January) would feature “some serious mother action,” adding, “It’ll be the closest Ted’s ever come to [discovering who she is]. He’s getting a step closer every episode this season, and episode 100 [we] kind of go bananas with it.”

    Thomas went on to say that he and fellow exec producer Carter Bays have been “spending a lot of time trying to cast the female role in Ted’s story for episode 100″ — a role a Mother insider confirms has gone to Bilson.

    But is she really Ted’s baby mama? Or is this just the latest in a long line of fake outs (see also: Sarah Chalke, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, etc)? Speculate away!

    Swiss ex-minister: Polanski should've been warned

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic
    Imprisoned director Roman Polanski should have been warned that he faced an international arrest warrant before he arrived in Switzerland, the country's former justice minister said Friday.

    Christoph Blocher said a warning would have been fairer to the 76-year-old filmmaker who was arrested as he arrived for a government-backed festival that invited him to receive an award. He also said it would have been legal.

    Polanski was apprehended on an American request for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl. Authorities in Los Angeles consider Polanski a convicted felon and a fugitive, and Switzerland says there has been an international warrant out on him since 2005.

    "You don't invite someone when you know he's going to be arrested," said Blocher, a nationalist firebrand who was ousted from the government at the end of 2007 after helping the People's Party become Switzerland's strongest. "You simply don't do that."

    Blocher, however, also distanced himself from those who want Polanski freed, and said his criticism was in no way a defense of the director's actions.

    Polanski was accused of plying the 13-year-old girl with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill during a modeling shoot in 1977 and raping her. He was initially indicted on six felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, child molesting and sodomy.

    Which 2 VMA hosts are (still) getting it on?

    Katy Perry & Russell Brand Together?

    EMAs host Katy Perry and British comic Russell Brand are a couple- according to reports.

    Last month at the
    VMAs our Russ’ made jokes about wanting to get it on with the I Kissed A Girl singer telling the audience he had her hotel room key.
    They were then spotted getting cosy together after the New York award show.
    Apparently the ladies man then wooed KP by sending her a love poem AND, according to The Sun, she replied with a picture of her breasts!
    It’s claimed Brand then invited the star on holiday to Thailand with him. A recent Tweet from the star said:
    “After a week in magical Thailand I'm ready 2 face the real world again. Been schooled on Morrissey, Oscar Wilde & Peter Sellers... inspired.”

    Rustyrockets tweets:

    I'm in Thailand is it right for non Buddhists to visit temples? Is it ok to snog the statues? Or claim to be the reincarnated Sidartha?Help!
    I'm in Thailand is wrong to ride an elephant? From an animal rights perspective?Or to pull it's tail?Or have sex with it? It's a moral maze.

    Kim Kardashian Calls Herself an Entrepreneur

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic
    Even when she's sick, Kim Kardashian isn't one to take it easy.

    "You can turn up the radio so you don't have to hear my blow my nose," the go-getting star tells November's Cosmopolitan while on her way to take a hike in L.A.

    In the new interview, which will hit newsstands Oct. 13, she acknowledges that some may think she's "famous for all the wrong reasons," as the magazine puts it, but the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shrugs off any criticism. "I'm an entrepreneur," she says of her career. "'Ambitious' is my middle name."

    Despite her focus on work, Kardashian, 28, says that in recent years, she's learned to balance career with her personal life. "A lot of work goes into relationships," she admits. (Kardashian recently reconciled with her boyfriend, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, 24.) "Right now, I'm figuring it out."

    The star also reflected on past relationships – and the mistakes she's made.

    In 2007, Kardashian and singer Ray J. had a sex tape leaked online. "I was devastated," she admits. "But when something negative happens, I pick myself up and move on, and I don't make the same mistake twice."

    Chris Sligh's reality check blog was discussed on The View

    On The View this morning, the panel discussed Chris Sligh’s recent blog post, that offered some tough advice to the Season 8 Idols.

    After Chris’s blog entered the news cycle via a story in the New York Post, some bloggers thought his message was arrogant, rather than a message of tough love, others appreciated his honesty.

    The ladies of the View were also split in their opinions.

    Sherri Shepherd got that his message was meant to be constructive. Whoopie’s introduction was super sarastic and she cracked, “Is he Kreskin?” while rolling her eyes. Barbara Walters figured that most of them would rather be famous, even if it was just for a short time


    Caryn Elaine Johnson needs to stfu because honestly does anyone remember all the 97 top 12 contestants on AI? the most that people remember are the winners even if they did suck YES YOU TAYLOR HICKS!
    also I think that Chris was spot on with everything he said on his blog.

    Glenn Beck Praises New Muse Album – Muse Ask For Retraction

    Wow this is awesomely brutal! Glenn Beck can't even give praise to an album without being asked to retract his statement by the band.

    On his morning radio show Beck gave high praise to the new Muse album and the band in general. He goes on to compare some of their lyrics to the George Orwell book 1984 and their warning that a one world government is coming if you don't wake up, which happen to be similar views to Beck. Sounds more like Alex Jones to me.

    By the end of the broadcast Beck was contacted by representatives of Muse wanting him to retract his statement. Beck jokingly apologizes for ruining their street credibility and then tells his audience to never listen to them or buy the records.

    Disgusting Gay Shit-Eater Blind Item, Ewww Gross!

    Two Guys One Cup

     This top Hollywood film actor has never come out of the closet, but there have been lots of rumors in the past that he is gay. While he has plenty of offers from gay men – and straight women – he actually prefers a third option: straight men who are also famous. He enjoys getting them to “switch teams”, even if only for a one-time tryst.

    His powers of persuasion must be pretty strong, because he’s talked more than one famous and straight man into sampling the goods. He always makes it as dirty as possible (including the sampling of each other’s body waste), because he feel certain that there is no way that they will ever tell anyone

    Mandy Moore discusses Rapunzel

    Actress/singer Mandy Moore has been tapped to lend voice to a Disney princess in "Rapunzel", and has shared her insight on her titular character. To Empire Online, the 25-year-old described Rapunzel as the "sort of the quintessential sassy, feisty Disney heroine", adding "She's quite modern, quite a curious girl as well."

    Revealing that she has begun working on the voicepart, Moore further explained, "She's just coming into her own and is anxious to figure out a way to see the world around her that she's been kept away from for so many years." On her taking a part in the passion project of Disney's head John Lasseter, the former girlfriend of actor Zach Braff said, "I just feel honored to be in such good company. Being a Disney Princess is kind of every girl's ultimate dream."

    Based on the fairy tale of the same name by the Brothers Grimm, "Rapunzel" is being co-directed by story artist Nathan Greno and "Bolt" helmer Byron Howard. It will be the 50th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, and is aimed for release in 2010.

    More Kristen Bell is LITERALLY the prescription for any fever.

    Assassin's Creed II Gets More Kristen Bell

    Once again actress Kristen Bell answers the call of Ubisoft, reprising her role as adorable blonde woman in Assassin's Creed II.

    The adorable blonde woman in question is Lucy Stillman, the Abstergo employee with a dark secret of secretive darkness. Lucy plays an even bigger role in Assassin's Creed II, and the former Heroes and Veronica Mars cast member was Ubisoft's only choice to fill her shoes. Well, Patrice's only choice.

    "Kristen Bell is a talented actress that brought the depth and emotion necessary for the mysterious role of Lucy for the first Assassin's Creed video game. She breathed life into her character in a way that deepened the gaming experience," said Patrice Desilets, creative director for Assassin's Creed II. "She did such a fantastic job for this character that, for me, Kristen Bell is Lucy Stillman and no one else can play that role."

    If I were Kristen Bell I wouldn't be writing up this story, for one, and I'd probably be worried that I would be typecast as an adorable blonde woman until the end of time. She seems okay with it though.

    "Being a part of the first Assassin's Creed video game was an amazing experience. Video games is such a creative entertainment medium, and to be able to see and play myself as a video game character was surreal. As an actress, it's both challenging and rewarding to play a complex character with this great mysterious background. I'm very happy to be Lucy once more, and I look forward to fans discovering more about her - they will be pleasantly surprised."

    I am always pleasantly surprised by Kristen Bell.

    I haven't played the first one, but knowing she did the voice in the first makes me want to play it. I fucking love her. And speaking of fevers, I am feeling sick, so guess I'm gonna go home and have a VMars Marathon

    Anne Frank museum posts 20-second video of young wartime Jewish diarist taken on neighbour's wedding

    Anne Frank is filmed seen leaning over her balcony in 1941 to get a good look of the bride-to-be next door

    The only existing film images of Anne Frank have been loaded on to YouTube by Amsterdam museum the Anne Frank House.

    The footage, from 1941, is the only time Anne has been captured on film. The 20-second footage uploaded to the museum's recently launched Anne Frank Channel shows Anne's neighbour on her wedding day. A 13-year-old Anne is seen nine seconds into the video, leaning out of a second-floor window to get a better look at the bride and groom. At the time of the wedding the bride-to-be lived at No 37 Merwedeplein, next door to the Franks at No 39.

    The scene was filmed on 22 July 1941, just under a year before the Frank family went into hiding above the family business. The family were discovered in August 1944 and Anne died in a Nazi concentration camp in March 1945.

    A shorter, five-second version of the video was given to Otto Frank, Anne's father, by the married couple in the 1950s. After Anne's published diary became widely known in the 1950s the couple recognised her in the film and contacted Otto.

    Annemarie Bekker, from the Anne Frank House, said using YouTube was a way to introduce the life of Anne Frank to people who may never have heard of her diaries.

    "The footage is very moving and very unique because these are the only moving images of Anne Frank," Bekker said.

    "The museum has had the footage for some time, but thought YouTube would be a good platform to show the film and the other films about her life. It's another way to bring the life of Anne Frank to the attention of younger people, and all people worldwide."

    The husband and wife, who are still alive and living in the Netherlands, were contacted by the Anne Frank House in the 1990s and provided the longer video.

    The video channel also includes excerpts from interviews with Otto Frank and Miep Gies, who helped to hide the Franks from the Nazis.

    The film has already attracted more than 275,000 views, with scores of comments. One read: "Gave me chills to see her in the video." Another user wrote: "Who knows what she could have become."

    'Ugly Betty' season premiere delayed-AGAIN....

    "Ugly Betty"'s getting a beauty makeover. But not until October 16th.

    The fourth season of the ABC series was originally scheduled to debut a week earlier on October 9th, however the network has announced they're pushing the two-hour premiere back a bit. 

    There's been no explanation as to why. The screener of said two-hour was made available to TV critics last week, so it's probably not a production issue.

    But anyway, when the show does return, we'll of course see a new and improved B. Suarez in an elevated position as associate features editor. The only problem? Her boss is her ex-boyfriend, her officemate -- played by Smith Cho -- kind of hates her and Marc (Michael Urie) is super annoyed that she got the job over him.

    Ahh, life at Mode.

    Excited for Betty's return?


    I swear one more delay and I'll have to sic Amanda on those ABC execs...

    During an interview with MTV News, Mariah addressed the case of the album's missing songs. Mariah had worked with heavyweight producers Timbaland and Jermaine Dupri on a number of tracks, none of which made it onto Memoirs. The songstress assured fans, however, that they'll soon get a chance to give everything a listen.

    "They're not on the album, but we have a special something planned that [record exec] L.A. Reid would be very angry with me if I discussed right now on MTV," she teased. "But for the fans, there will be more than one Timbaland track and at least one J.D. track."

    Dead Like Me - WTF?

    Ted Williams' frozen head used for batting practice, says new book

    Workers at an Arizona cryonics facility mutilated the frozen head of baseball legend Ted Williams - even using it for a bizarre batting practice, a new tell-all book claims.

    In "Frozen," Larry Johnson, a former exec at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., graphically describes how The Splendid Splinter" was beheaded, his head frozen and repeatedly abused.

    The book, out Tuesday from Vanguard Press, tells how Williams' corpse became "Alcorian A-1949" at the facility, where bodies are kept suspended in liquid nitrogen in case future generations learn how to revive them.

    Johnson writes that in July 2002, shortly after the Red Sox slugger died at age 83, technicians with no medical certification gleefully photographed and used crude equipment to decapitate the majors' last .400 hitter.

    Williams' severed head was then frozen, and even used for batting practice by a technician trying to dislodge it from a tuna fish can.

    The chief operating officer of Alcor for eight months before becoming a whistleblower in 2003, Johnson wrote his book while in hiding, fearful for his life.

    He told the Daily News then he had received death threats and was moving from safehouse to safehouse. Johnson plans to come out of the shadows Tuesday, with his book and an appearance on ABC's "Nightline."

    Johnson said he wired himself with an audio recorder for his last three months at Alcor, stole internal records and took gruesome photographs that are reproduced in the book.

    The book describes other atrocities at Alcor's facility in Arizona, including the dismembering of live dogs that were injected with chemicals in experiments, and a situation in which human blood and toxic chemicals were dumped into a parking lot sewer drain.

    "Zombieland" Is the Perfect Date Movie

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    They said zombie romance couldn't be done, but new gorecom Zombieland proves it can. And it's not sappy romance either - it delivers the angsty, twitchy, hyperverbal courtship style of the geek generation. Dystopia is the perfect hookup prelude.

    So how exactly do you make a feel-good romantic comedy wrapped inside a blood-soaked future where the human race has reached a diseased dead end? In Zombieland, director Ruben Fleischer does it by combining your typical college nerd shut-in character Columbus with a world gone mad. Though you'd expect that a skinny dork would be the last person to survive a zombie infestation, in fact his antisocial skills serve him well in the apocalypse. "I treated everybody like zombies anyway," he admits in the hilarious voiceover commentary that peppers the movie, along with YouTube-style pop-up text to underscore key points. Like Columbus' "rules" for survival, including "double tap" (always shoot zombies twice) and "avoid bathrooms" (apparently they like to chomp people relaxing in public toilets).

    "Virtual Echo" Turns Dollhouse's Squick Factor Up To 11

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Fox wants to make sure you flee Dollhouse's "glamor and dehumanization" premise. The show's new widget, which puts a flirty Eliza Dushku on your desktop, helpfully explains "this show is for creepy teenage masturbators." Good job, Fox!

    The "Virtual Echo" app, which runs on the somewhat insecure Adobe Air platform, is reminiscent of those "virtual girlfriend" programs that proliferated in the 1990s. You can customize how often Echo struts out onto your screen (wearing a different outfit each time) and does a trick. (When she's hostage negotiator Ellie Penn, she throws a card, which "hits" your screen and reads, "Your Boss Is Coming!" or "Why Be All Business?" or "Call Me." Which is sorta cute, I guess.) If you're missing her fashion catwalk strut, then you can always click "see me now," and she'll come when you call her.

    'Supernatural' boss to fans: 'Withhold judgment on Paris Hilton'

    It stands to reason that a Supernatural season built around a looming apocalypse would feature a guest turn by Paris Hilton. But series creator Eric Kripke says the casting stunt — airing next Thursday — doesn’t herald the end of the world as we know it.

    “I don’t think we’re gassing up the motorcycle to jump the shark yet,” insists Kripke of the episode, which finds the hotel heiress playing “a monster who takes the form of Paris Hilton… It’s a fun, irreverent episode about modern celebrity. [Fans] should withhold judgment until they see it.”

    Kripke insists the idea to cast Hilton originated in the Supernatural writers room and not in a CW executive suite. “There was no pressure form the studio or network to do any stunt casting,” he says. “We had our wish list in the room of who would be the best spokesperson for a satirical monologue on modern celebrity and Paris Hilton was at the top of the list. We never expected in a million years that she would do it, but I spoke to her and she got the joke immediately and signed on quickly.

    “I give her a lot of credit for being a hell of a good sport,” he continues. “The fact that she was game to play the part speaks volumes about her sense of humor.”

    What say you, Supe Nazis? Willing to keep an open mind until next Thursday? Or does the mere mention of Paris Hilton’s name in connection with Supernatural make you die a little inside?

    Heidi Klum's hopes for her kids

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Protective mama Heidi Klum says she’s had to lay down some baby bump ground rules for her kids Leni, 5, Henry, 4, and Johan, 2 1/2.

    "I had to stop them jumping on my tummy,” she says. “They don't really understand there is actually a real human being in there."

    The model mom, who is expecting baby #4 this month, recently talked parenting to FOX, saying that she and her hubby Seal encourage their kids to follow their dreams, but always remind them of the importance education.

    "You want them to stay in school and you want them to have a vision of what they want to be and give them ideas and encourage them,” the 36-year-old Project Runway host says. “I definitely want to get involved and do that, think about job ideas. Nowadays children look at everyone in the magazines and they want to be a basketball star or on a television show, but there are only so many people who can do those things. But you still should aim or dream for these things."

    Top 10 Rock and Roll horror movies

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    It’s something we intuitively feel anyway, but it’s very much worth pointing out that horror and rock music both have a lot in common. They seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly—at least over the course of the past 50 or so years that the music genre has been with us. They are both rebellious, potentially shocking, challenge the status quo, and are always testing the envelope. Perhaps this is partly why they are so linked, and seem to attract similar fan bases. Keep the music blasting, and the blood pouring!

    10. Queen of the Damned
    Not the best movie by any stretch of the imagination, but since this is a movie based completely upon the conceit of a vampire who starts his own successful rock band, it warranted inclusion here. Stuart “Original choice for Aragorn until he walked off the LOTR set like a baby” Townsend makes a convincing rock star, and is not bad as Lestat—but then again, anything beats Tom Cruise.

    IUC World Exclusive: Polanski Had Sex With Other Minors

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    IUC has learned film director Roman Polanski is finally being brought to justice because authorities have learned that Polanski had unlawful intercourse with several other underage women. While investigating Polanski’s rape charges with then 13-year-old Samantha Gailey, a police source told IUC that authorities learned of at least two other cases in which Polanski allegedly plied underage women with champagne and drugs before engaging in sexual acts with them. “Polanski should be brought to justice, it’s long overdue,” the source said. “He makes Phil Spector and OJ look like angels. I can’t believe he’s been able to evade justice for so long.” Developing…

    Hmm, an anonymous source who hasn't come forward with any proof? Sounds fishy, but I wouldn't put anything past Polanski, so I guess we'll see what "develops". BONUS! Behind the cut I have transcribed a copy of 1984 interview with Polanski in which he discusses the rape case:

    YOU GOT SERVED - a legal update

    TMZ has learned a woman has filed a paternity case against Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles.
    We've learned Alexsandra Wright filed the case in L.A. County Superior Court. Wright lives in L.A. -- she works in the name-branding business. We're told she's in her late 30s.

    Wright, who is 6-months pregnant, filed the case last week, alleges Knowles is the father. Sources say Wright is repped by Neal Hersh, who is currently repping Lamar Odom in the prenup negotiations with Khloe Kardashian.

    Mathew has been married to Tina Knowles since 1980. Mathew could not be immediately reached for comment. Ditto Neal Hersh.

    You better fill out insurance forms correctly or you'll get dropped from your policy -- because that's exactly why Lloyd's of London say they left Toni Braxton high and dry.

    Lloyd's is countersuing Toni -- who had concert cancellation insurance with the company -- after she sued Lloyd's for refusing to cut her a check when she canceled a show in 2006 due to heart problems.

    In the lawsuit, Lloyd's says the reason they dropped Toni ... because she failed to disclose her full medical history on the insurance application. L of L claims she kept her "pericarditis condition" -- a heart ailment -- all to herself.

    Lloyd's not only refuses to pay up, it wants Ms. Braxton to ante up damages.

    Kate Beckinsale - Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive - 11/09

    Esquire’s new “Sexiest Woman Alive” is an action hero who “could kick your ass.”

    The style mag has selected Kate Beckinsale, 36, for its annual “Sexiest Woman Alive” title. The Whiteout star follows in the footsteps of starlets like Charlize Theron and Halle Berry, who have previously taken the honor.

    “This whole notion of being named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ is going to earn me quite a beating,” Kate laughs in the November issue of Esquire Magazine. “You can’t have that title with four brothers. I’ll get wedgies. Headlocks. Noogies.”

    Still, Kate’s happy for the tag that solidifies her place as an official hottie.

    “I like the idea of it, too. I do. I’m feeling that I must earn this. I need to go out and become much better at pole dancing or something.”

And while it’s been a long time coming, the reality star has finally released all the details today. Named simply Kim Kardashian, the fragrance (produced through Lighthouse Beauty) will include notes of jasmine, tuberose, and gardenia over a base of tonka bean and sandalwood. “I learned so much about what it takes to develop a scent, and the end result is the perfect extension of my own personal style,” the star says in a release. You’ll be able to see if it’s your style too when it launches exclusively at Sephora in February 2010, with prices starting at $16 for a .33 oz. rollerball and topping out at $65 for a 3.4 oz eau de parfum spray.

    What girl doesn’t love diamonds? For jewelry designer and heiress Ivanka Trump, her love affair with the gems started early. “The first important piece of jewelry I ever got was a diamond necklace my mom gave me from her collection when I turned 21,” Ivanka tells InStyle in their October issue. “Part of our bonding as I grew up was watching her accessorize for a night out.” So the decision to design jewelry was a natural one, says Ivanka: “Clothing has less of an immediate appeal to me. Jewelry is more than an accessory. In fact, a dress is an accessory to the jewelry,” she continues. This philosophy is evident in the way the diamond designer keeps her clothing classic and conservative. “I’m not afraid to be over-the-top with jewels. As far as diamonds go, the bigger the better,” she says. And though she likes her diamonds big — fiance Jared Kushner proposed to her with a 5-carat stunner he designed himself– Ivanka cautions against accessorizing with too many jewels at once. “I also don’t believe that layering creates the look. It’s not about how many jewels you can wear at once.”

    Britney Spears spent $3,000 on candy in one afternoon.

    The Womanizer singer splashed out the staggering sum at the Sugar Factory, which is located inside Las Vegas’ Mirage hotel, which she visited with sons, Sean Preston, four, and three-year-old Jayden James, and boyfriend Jason Trawick on Sunday.

    “She spent about $3,000 and walked out of the store with 10 bags,” revealed a source. “She got a bunch of candy and shirts for her kids and got a bunch of the couture lollipops to give to her back-up dancers.”

    Among the items Britney, who was in Las Vegas for the final US show of her Circus world tour, bought were a box of Sugar Factor milk chocolate and 25 $25 lollipops.

    After paying for the items the store sent another $2,500-worth of candy to Britney’s room at the Mirage.

    Local police turn a wary eye to controversial band's followers


    Police throughout the country are becoming increasingly familiar with the violent lyrics of rap metal duo Insane Clown Posse, which is booked to play at an Allentown club in December.

    In Monroe County, where authorities have identified up to 1,000 fans, the district attorney's office has joined police in Arizona and Utah in listing band followers as a gang. And the Wisconsin Justice Department has labeled the band a security threat.

    The controversy surrounding Insane Clown Posse, a Detroit duo, hit Schuylkill County last week when four band followers were charged with killing a friend and follower who may have broken an ICP code.

    omg ya'll usher's comin' back too

    Usher is airing out his dirty laundry. The R&B superstar will address the end of his marriage on the first offering from his new album, set to debut Monday.

    The title of the song, originally reported to be “Filing Papers,” has been confirmed as “Papers” by Jive Records. It was penned by Sean Garrett.

    The new single was supposedly written before Usher announced his divorce from Tameka Foster. “Let’s say I wrote a record for Usher three or four months ago where I really didn’t have any idea of what he was going through personally,” Garrett told MTV News in June. “I felt that was the direction we needed to go. I felt that was the question everyone wanted to know: Was [his relationship] good or was it bad? Was it right? Are you happy or you’re not?”

    “Papers” will premiere on Monday, October 5, at 2:02 p.m. EST, unless the Internet gets its hands on it earlier. Usher’s sixth studio album Monster is due in December.

    Ryan Reynolds is spending the week preparing to host "Saturday Night Live," and despite bringing some ideas to the table, it sounds like he'll only be doing the skits the show's writers came up with for him.

    "They turned down my Kirk Cameron [impression]. That hurt," he joked to MTV News at rehearsal on Friday. "A little 'Growing Pains' present-day sort of tapestry, if you will. Maybe next time."

    He may fit in with the actors, but he's not so sure about the show's musical guest, the one and only Lady Gaga. "Ryan Reynolds and Lady Gaga is a natural fit, I think," he said sarcastically. Reynolds was dazzled by the singer earlier this week during her soundcheck. "It was pretty exciting to meet her, though. She's a talented musician. You sort of forget that with all the glitz and glamour," he said. "She plays piano beautifully and sings beautifully and is this masterful musician but, at the same time, will put on an entire unitard made of hearing-aid-colored fabric and be a little strange, so you sort of forget."

    So have they bonded enough to strike up a musical collaboration? Um, probably not. "I don't think it would sound too good," he said. "It would sound a lot like Lady Gaga eating a grown man alive."
