John Simm is awesome, talks about Doctor Who



John Simm has said that he avoided subtlety as The Master in this year's Doctor Who specials.
The actor, who will reprise the role that he first played in 2007's 'Utopia' in the upcoming end-of-year episodes, said that he was influenced by the Joker from the Batman series.
He told the Daily Mail: "If you thought I was hamming it up in the last one, wait till you see this. I like to be quite subtle, but this doesn't call for subtle. The Master is insane.
"I also used a bit of Caligula and a bit of Tony Blair. But in this, The Master is off the leash. Unhinged. Totally unplugged!"
He added of taking the role: "It was so I could prove to [my son that] daddy is an actor. He can never watch anything I'm in and this was perfect because he loves Doctor Who.
"There are moments I'll cherish for ever. The best bits about being a screen actor are the moments when the camera is behind you and, as far as the eye can see, you are in that world.

"There were also moments which were pure Boys' Own fantasy, but I can't say what because I don't want to ruin people's Christmas!"

Here's a video from Michael Lohan's reality pilot where he's standing in the rain, trying to be electrocuted for Lindsay



When you do shit like this, even if they're just for theatrics, you're insane, and possibly, dangerous, and even worse, shameless about how dangerously insane you are in the name of "protecting" your daughter while trying to invoke a higher power to electrocute you.

Norah Jones has wonderful breasts, talks about kissing Jude Law and other things

'Why Jude Law licked my face for three days': Norah Jones reveals all


Norah Jones on Dancing With The Stars

She's a multi-Grammy award winning singer who enjoys people telling her she's attractive and give her a vintage guitar over new clothes anytime






Singer-songwriter Norah Jones rocketed to fame at the age of 22, with her debut album Come Away With Me grabbing five Grammys on one night in 2003. Six years on, she's sold 36 million records worldwide, and is about to release her fourth album, which combines a rougher, more contemporary sound with her trademark jazz vocals.

Jones is the daughter of legendary Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar but was raised in Texas by her mother, Sue Jones. She now lives in New York.

When we meet in London's Covent Garden Hotel she's dressed casually in layers of soft greys that show off her petite frame. She is stunningly pretty, despite very little make-up, with curls of dark hair escaping from a woollen beanie, and her obvious passion for music makes her by turn vivacious, funny - and occasionally wary...


Having Jude Law licking my face for three days solid was a surreal experience.





It was for a scene in 2007's Blueberry Nights. My character had passed out on a table and Jude had to come in and kiss some cream off the corner of my mouth. We did the take over and over again, so he kissed me about 90 times. There are worse ways to spend your day.

Bruce Springsteen Is Confused

'Hello, Ohio!' (Psst! Boss, we're in Michigan)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The curse of Friday the 13th struck Bruce Springsteen in a most unusual way: it made the 60-year-old rock legend forget where he was.

The Boss bellowed "Hello, Ohio!" to his fans at the Auburn Hills Palace in Michigan.

Springsteen referred to the neighboring state several times in the following 30 minutes until E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt whispered in his ear.

A visibly embarrassed Springsteen grinned and said such a mistake was "every front man's nightmare."

The Detroit Free Press says Springsteen rocked the forgiving audience for nearly three hours Friday night with new and old hits including a complete performance of his album "Born to Run."

Below are the UK (left) and the US (right) poster.

The Mail on Sunday reports:

The studio said it regretted causing offence and has abandoned plans to use the revised poster in other countries... A Universal spokesman said the revised advert aimed 'to simplify the poster to actors who are most recognisable in international markets'.

Dante's Inferno As An Animated Movie



Starz and Visceral Games have revealed the first trailer for the animated Dante's Inferno, based on the immortal epic. From the producers of Dead Space: Downfall, the feature-length movie expands on the story in EA's new game coming out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Both are based on part one of Dante Alighieri's classic poem, "The Divine Comedy," better known as "Dante's Inferno."

The DVD, Blu-ray and video game hit stores in February. The game itself was optioned by Universal Pictures for a feature film. You can visit the official website for more info.

Zachary Levi Turned Down Role in Thor for Chuck



The nerd-spy TV series Chuck faced down cancellation and came out victorious, even adding six more episodes to the thirteen already on order for its third season. Unfortunately, there was one casualty: series star Zachary Levi was forced to turn down an offer to play Fandral, one of the "Warrior's Three," in director Kenneth Branagh's live-action adaptation of the Thor comic book series, set to begin filming in January.

According to USA Weekend, the addition of six episodes caused a scheduling conflict that prevented Levi from accepting the role. Levi said that he had actually been asked to try out for the title role of the God of Thunder, as well, but declined.

I'm tall and in pretty good shape, but I'm not big and girthy like that.

Thor stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and Anthony Hopkins as Thor's father, Odin.

Next Showing: Thor is scheduled to open May 20, 2011

That sucks for him but I'm glad it was because Chuck is still filming... I guess I'm torn but I'd personally rather have more Chuck!

Lauren Bacall receives a Lifetime Achievement Oscar



LOS ANGELES - HOLLYWOOD presented its first Oscars of the awards season late Saturday, honouring screen acting legend Lauren Bacall with a statuette for her life's work in film.

'I can't believe it!' Bacall gushed, as she was awarded the Governor's Award at a ceremony that offered a foretaste of Oscar glitter and glamour.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also honored director Roger Corman, cinematographer Gordon Willis and producer John Calley at the ceremony attended by an array of Hollywood luminaries - from George Lucas to Quentin Tarantino.
Bacall, one of the most successful screen sirens of the 1940s and 1950s made her screen debut in the classic film 'To Have and Have Not' in which she played the love interest of real-life future husband Humphrey Bogart, to whom she paid homage in her remarks.
'He gave me a life and changed my life,' she said of the 'Casablanca' screen hero to whom she was married from 1945 until his death in 1957.

Superbowl halftime show announced

The wardrobe malfunction of 2004 changed the face of the halftime shows at the Super Bowl. Since the scandal, we have had Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and last year, Bruce Springsteen performed at halftime. For the past five years, Don Mischer Productions and White Cherry Entertainment have brought you millions of football viewers entertaining showcases, however they were all somewhat safe.

2009 has been a great year for music; Taylor Swift topped the charts, Lady Gaga stole the scene, Jay-Z gave us heart, and Beyonce shoot her money marker for all the single ladies out there. With a plethora of amazing musicians to pick from to perform at Super Bowl XLIV, fans were a little shocked to hear who was announced on Friday as the featured performers.

Without further ado, we announce The Who as the halftime act for Rock Super Bowl XLIV live from Dolphin Stadium in Miami. Easily one of the top ten most successful bands throughout time, selling over 100 million records and producing multiple platinum records. The band that began jamming for over forty-five years surprisingly has never played the Super Bowl until now.



The verdict on this decision is split right down the center; the older crowds are lovin' it while the younger crowds are crying foul. While many think that picking The Who (Band) is safe, The Rocker band has done some pretty crazy and outrageous things in their time. Once, they nailed all their hotel furniture to the ceiling and even wilder they drove a car into a swimming pool from the second story of a hotel. So it is anyone's guess what the band will do, but we will all be watching. So what do you think about the pick; were you looking for more of a Taylor Swift pick or are you happy with The Who?

lindsay has a hissy fit


Lindsay Lohan allegedly refused to pay two bottles of champagne from a Los Angeles bar.
The troubled actress was reportedly furious when she was given a bill for her drinks at The Crown Bar and stunned onlookers with a tantrum when staff insisted she settled her tab for her evening.
A source told America's People magazine: "Lindsay stormed into the kitchen and grabbed two bottles of really expensive champagne. She finished both bottles with a friend. When the bartender gave her a bill, she had a meltdown.
"She was yelling at him and screaming profanities at everyone. The bar insisted she pay, so she had to call a friend with her credit card information."
The star eventually left the nightspot at 2.30am - but was still in tears over the incident.
The source added: "She was crying and wanted to go home. She kept saying 'I don't pay for drinks! This is ridiculous! I'm freaking out!' "

Lindsay - who has previously undergone stints in a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol abuse - has caused increasing concern with her recent behaviour.
Her father Michael Lohan has spoken out, saying he fears she will die if she doesn't get help for her problems.
He said: "I want my daughter off prescription medication. She never needed it in her life... I'm not going to watch my daughter die. Hate me now, but you love me more later because I'm gonna turn her life around."

Get Ready for Some Daytime TV Man-on-Man Action



While some soaps are currently facing backlash from viewers over their gay storylines, "One Life to Live" has been quietly continuing on its "journey" of telling the story of Kyle (Brett Claywell) and Oliver's (Scott Evans) relationship. Now, there's word that the ABC soap is going to take this pairing to the next logical destination -- the bedroom.

Since launching its first same-sex storyline earlier this year, "One Life to Live's" gay storyline has managed a relatively low profile among the non-soap viewing audience. There was no media blitz for the mass gay wedding the way that ABC had trumpeted the nuptials of "All My Children's" Bianca and Reese. Nor did anyone in the mainstream media seem to care that the legendary Dorian Lord would be marrying another a woman -- even if it was to try to win an election.

Still, fans of the Kyle Lewis and Olivier Fish romance -- affectionately dubbed "Kish" -- have remained stalwart supporters of the couple. Now comes word that fans will be rewarded for their loyalty: Advocate.com is reporting that "One Life to Live's" same-sex couple will have sex sometime before the end of the year.

"The show promises a happy gay New Year in Llanview," reports the companion web site to the nation's number one gay and lesbian news magazine.

In June, "One Life to Live" became the latest daytime drama series to explore a gay storyline. The show described the story as a "journey," while one of the actors involved in the plot has gone on to refer to it as a "love storyline."

Details on where and when Kyle and Fish will consummate their relationship are still under wraps.

Brock Lesnar Hospitalized ... UFC Career and His Life Are in Jeopardy!




In an announcement that shocked the media during the UFC 105 post-event press conference, Ultimate Fight President Dana White announced that Brock Lesnar is "not well and he's not going to be getting well anytime soon."

"He's in a hospital up in North Dakota somewhere right now," said White. "He doesn't want to talk about it publicly, but he's in bad shape."

The monstrous Lesnar pulled out of his scheduled November 21st main event at UFC 106 against Shane Carwin after contracting what he thought was a bad case of the flu but was then diagnosed with mononucleosis. After the official announcement was made that the fight was postponed, contracts were sent out for a January 2nd fight between the two. When Lesnar did not return the contract signed to UFC, he decided to take some time off and go to Canada, where he has some property.

White commented, "He went to Canada and some bad stuff happened to him, so we've got to figure it out. He is not good. He is very, very sick and he's going to be out for a while."

When asked about Lesnar's reported case of mononucleosis, White added, "He has other problems too. I am worried about it. You know, I can't really talk about it right now, but he's in rough shape. He's in really bad shape … and we're going to have to do some stuff to take care of this guy. We're going to have to send him to the Mayo Clinic or to Scripps, or one of those really good hospitals to figure out what's wrong with this guy."

Even Lesnar's close friend and business associate Paul Heyman, the legendary writer/producer/on-air-personality with whom Lesnar closely worked during his tenure in World Wrestling Entertainment is keeping mum on what's ailing the current UFC Champion.

In an articled written by Heyman Hustle webmaster Michael G and posted late Saturday Night (http://heymanhustle.craveonline.com/articles/news/22656-brock-lesnar-hospitalized), the webmaster wrote:


Many of you may be checking in with THE HEYMAN HUSTLE because of Paul Heyman's personal friendship and reported business relationship with Brock. For those of you who are looking for that insight, I can tell you that Paul has not discussed this latest development with any of us, but is aware of this story being posted tonight. Paul has promised to update on the situation this week. While there are many rumors flying around, it does not appear that a full diagnosis is available, and after the press had already run with the mono story, it's obvious Lesnar's health problem is serious and perhaps even complicated.

Lesnar's mono now appears to be the least of his issues. UFC will have to crown an Interim Champion, and Brock Lesnar's UFC career seems to be in jeopardy at this time.

SNL : Who makes a better Hoda?

Last night, SNL newbie Jenny Slate was put in the unenviable position of picking up a character created by Michaela Watkins, a one-season castmember who was let go earlier this year. Watkins had carved out a niche for herself on the show with a spot-on impersonation of Today show anchor Hoda Kotb—the straight woman to Kristen Wiig’s boozy, bawdy Kathie Lee Gifford. But the sketch was revived yesterday with Slate in the role, a slightly jarring change to those of us accustomed to seeing Watkins in the chair next to Wiig.
My colleague Ken Tucker thought the sketch was pretty underwhelming and took pity on Slate for having to “compete with the memory of Watkins’ original impersonation and sit by while Wiig did mugging that wasn’t freshened with anything new.” I actually laughed a few times during the sketch, but I agree that it feels like Slate’s got her work cut out for her if she wants to outshine Watkins. Check out the sketch below, and then let us know: Do you miss the old Hoda? Or did Slate manage to make the character her own?

I know none of us miss Casey Wilson, but Michaela Watkins was really funny, imo. Last night it bothered me to see new girl in her place doing a pretty pathetic job.

EDIT: Here's one with Michaela for comparison.

Alix Malka shooting Christina Aguilera's album cover!!!!



GODTINA



The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv has reported yesterday that the cover of the new album "Light & Darkness" was shot this weekend by the Israeli photographer Alix Malka.

ALIX MALKA is one of the new talents in fashion photography, born in Paris, Alix Malka is today one of the most asked for photographers by the international magazines.

His inspiration comes from the likes of Pedro Almodovar and John Waters, as well as designers like John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. Obsessed by color, Malka’s images are suggestive of taste for rich, exuberant and sophisticated stylism. His first incursion to the world of the fashion was in 1985 when he began work with director Tierry Mugler.

Aguilera's highly anticipated new album will be out early next year!

12 Sci-Fi Shows That Were Canceled Too Soon



Joss Whedon has become something of a tortured artist since 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' ended its highly successful seven-season run in 2003. Since Sunnydale was destroyed and 'Angel' got pulled right when it was finding its own identity post-'Buffy,' Whedon has yet to find another long-running hit. It's still hard to believe that a show as great as 'Firefly' only lasted one season!

Whedon's bad luck continues with the recent announcement that Fox is pulling the plug on 'Dollhouse,' a series that had enough of a following -- and potential -- to warrant another season. Would 'Dollhouse' have really hit its stride further down the road? We'll never know. Here are some other sci-fi television series that met their makers too soon.

Cillian Murphy + Danny Boyle To Team Up Again?



If Hollywood was hoping Danny Boyle's next film would be another jubilant, rags-to-riches fable in the vein of Slumdog Millionaire, then it has another thing coming. What it has coming, in fact, is a stark, small-scale survival drama about a lonely mountaineer who cuts off his own forearm.

Boyle has signed up to direct 127 Hours, a film based on the true-life ordeal of mountaineer Aron Ralston. According to Variety, the picture will reunite Boyle with his team on the Oscar-sweeping Slumdog Millionaire. Christian Colson returns as producer, while Simon Beaufoy is in talks to write the script.

Aron Ralston was climbing in Utah's Blue John Canyon in late April 2003 when his arm became trapped beneath a fallen boulder. Pinned against the mountainside for five days, he survived by drinking his own urine and even videotaped a goodbye message for his family. He eventually escaped by hacking off his arm with a blunt knife and a pair of pliers.

Batman Begins star Cillian Murphy is the top choice to play Aron, and the film is due to shoot early next year with a release date set for late 2010.


Danny and Cillian have done 28 Days Later and Sunshine together, I hope this happens. Thoughts?

John Stamos gets a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame





Actor John Stamos will receive the 2,393 star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, honoring a career, which has evolved from the family comedy "Full House" to television drama and Broadway.

Television producer and movie director Garry Marshall and Stamos' "Full House" co-star Bob Saget will join Stamos in speaking in the late-morning ceremony (11:30 a.m.) on Hollywood Boulevard--if you've seen any of Saget's comedy stand-up routines, you just might be wondering what this event could bring.

The Stamos' star, located at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard, will be next to Dick Van Dyke, who played Albert Peterson in the original Broadway production of "Bye Bye Birdie," a role Stamos now plays on Broadway.

Stamos' career spanned more than 25 years, beginning with the hit soap “General Hospital.” He later segued to one of the most iconic family television programs playing “Uncle Jesse” on the popular ABC series “Full House.”

He later appeared as Dr. Tony Gates on NBC's "ER" from 2005 until it ended its run in 2009.

In case you were wondering, Judge Joseph Wapner was the 2,392 star on the Walk of Fame.

The fellow star recievers of 2009 are:

MOTION PICTURES:
Tinkerbell, Tim Burton, Leslie Caron, Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey, Jr., Charles Durning, Ralph Fiennes, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ben Kingsley and William H. Macy
TELEVISION:
Mark Burnett, Felicity Huffman, Chuck Lorre, William Petersen, Kyra Sedgwick, and John Stamos
RECORDING:
Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, Dave Koz, The Miracles, Doug Morris, RUSH, Shakira and The Village People
RADIO:
Bill Handel and Harry Shearer

Something to look forward too? The 2010 Class of Stars.

Stamos displayed his musical talents over the past 20 years while touring with “The Beach Boys.” However, we do not foresee a star in the recording category anytime soon.

Rihanna in combative mood for new album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Pop star Rihanna is back, blonde and out to have fun after "getting all my emotions out" on new album Rated R. But her guard is still up if tagged as a victim of domestic violence.

At a press conference to promote the album, it was strictly off limits to even mention the controversy dogging her since February, when R&B boyfriend Chris Brown brutally attacked her in Los Angeles on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

The shocking police photo of the singer's bruised face -- Rihanna is also a model and fashion icon -- was leaked to the press, and earlier this month the star said returning to Brown [after he had bitten and scratched her during the attack] had been a mistake, which arose because she was "so far in love."

Well, she's not in love anymore. Rated R was recorded when she was in a "dark" mood, and did a lot of "venting" in the studio. Some tracks allude to the doomed relationship, especially the single Wait Your Turn.

x factor worried about free votes



X Factor producers are reportedly worried about a website which offers free phone votes for the show.

Viewers can use the free2call.tv website to avoid paying premium rates for their votes. Instead, they listen to a 15-second advert when they place their call. Over 50,000 fans have reportedly used the service this year.

However, the Daily Mail claims that producers are worried that the service could lead to "possible fraud" because it does not have the security that the official voting lines do.

Fans from Ireland, who are not able to use the normal voting system, can support acts using the free2call service. Meanwhile, there are fears that betting syndicates could place multiple votes without broadcasters realising.

ITV has reportedly already held a meeting with Ofcom to discuss the website. Lawyers from the BBC and Channel 4 also attended because of worries that the problem could affect their shows.

Edward Boddington, chief executive of the firm that looks after the show's voting system, said that if free2call affected the show's outcome ITV may have to cancel the vote and refund viewers.

However, free2call owner Mark Hillman said: "We vote on X Factor just the same way that the public do. All we do is sit in the middle."

He added that the service complies with Ofcom and Phonepay Plus, although an Ofcom spokesperson said that it had not approved the service.

Meanwhile, an X Factor spokesperson claimed that less than 1% of votes were made through free2call and said checks were made to make sure the votes were routed into the correct X Factor numbers.

She added: "The integrity of our voting systems is of paramount importance and we are confident there has been no possibilty of free2call votes affecting the overall result."

LiLo to work on bebe/Mouawad fashion line



Lindsay Lohan is trying her hand at fashion once again.

Though the star earned some bad reviews for her debut collection as artistic advisor for famed house Emanuel Ungaro, she broke the news to Access Hollywood on Thursday that she has a collection for a different label in the works.

“[Jeweler] Pascal [Mouawad] and I are actually working together, we’re doing something with a friend who owns bebe,” she told Access at Pascal’s Nu Pop Movement launch party in West Hollywood. “We’re doing a collection for them and we’re also going to be doing some other things.”

A Pascal rep told Access on Friday that the new line has yet to be finalized.

Lindsay previously told People that she’s also hard at work on the follow-up to her Ungaro debut, with the house’s next collection set to debut in January.

“I am learning,” she said at the time.

Paris Hilton sparks feud with Kim Kardashian and her sisters



Paris Hilton is declaring war on her former best friends, the Kardashian sisters, for becoming more famous and earning more cash than she does.

The hotel heiress is fuming that Kim and her sibs, who got their first big break by hanging out on the Hollywood scene with Hilton, have eclipsed her in the fame and money stakes. Sources say she's hatched a plan to boost her brand by pushing a new beauty line and make herself more likable by playing down her lavish lifestyle.

A source told Page Six: "Paris is furious that Kim got her start by hanging out in Hollywood with her -- and now, the Kardashians have it all, the reality shows, the magazine covers, the big appearance fees and promotional deals.

"She used to command $100,000 for club appearances, but now Kim is the hottest girl -- and they aren't friends anymore. The magazines are bidding around $300,000 for Kourtney's baby-shower and baby pictures. And Khloe's wedding brought in record ratings for E!

"Paris has realized that standing for excess in a recession doesn't appeal," our insider continued. "The Kardashian girls seem more real, and girls identify with them more. She's got to ditch the pink Bentley and concentrate on developing herself."

Sources close to Hilton said she's carefully working on the launch of her new hair and beauty line, which she'll unveil in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, taking the lead from the Kardashians by having her family at her side.

And she's keen to play up her more stable relationship with Doug Reinhardt and talk about the possibility of marriage and babies.

The source added: "Paris has 15 product lines on sale. She isn't really a party girl anymore, she is quite settled with Doug. She wants more people to appreciate that she's grown up." A rep for Hilton declined to comment.

Courteney Cox Terrorizing Set of “Cougar Town”



Has the success of her new ABC comedy Cougar Town gone to Courteney Cox’s head? The 45-year-old former Friends star is winning rave reviews for her portrayal of a single mother trying to land a younger man on the ratings winning Wednesday night series, but word is Courteney is such a control freak, workers on the Cougar Town routinely try to avoid her!

“Courteney is the star of the show and very domineering. She gives off this ‘I’m important and you’re not’ vibe,” a crew member — who asked not to be identified tells The National Enquirer. “Courteney makes a huge number of script changes to make her character look good, and she is extremely picky about everything on the show,” the spy adds.

A craft services employee allegedly felt Court’s wrath after her ham and cheese sandwich making skills failed to pass muster:

“Courteney ranted at her and said, ‘Everyone knows you are supposed to have equal parts of ham and cheese in a sandwich!’”

A wardrobe worker also claims she was terrorized by the brunette after she had the brazen audacity to offer Courteney just three clothing options for a last minute scene; the star was insistent that she have at least five outfits to choose from

“Courteney got so mad and told her she would be back in 10 minutes, saying, ‘If you don’t have what I requested, you’d better not show up next time,’” says a tattle.

“Her code names are ‘Mother Hen’ or ‘Cougar Queen.’ That seems like all we hear all day. ‘Mother Hen’ needs a pick-up or ‘Cougar Queen’ is on her way to makeup. Everyone jokes that it’s Courteney’s way on the highway.”

Interview with Katey Sagal, aka Peg Bundy aka HBIC Gemma



Katey Sagal is back in Mommie-Not-So-Dearest mode. The actress was hardly the model mother as the wise-cracking, lazy housewife Peg Bundy on Fox's "Married . . . With Children." But that character would be "Mother of the Year" next to Gemma Teller Morrow, the ruthless matriarch of an outlaw biker club on FX's "Sons of Anarchy." The role on the drama, which has grown in its second season to one of the cable network's most popular dramas, is the latest in a gallery of TV mothers for Sagal, who also played a soccer mom on the comedy "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter." While thrilled over the growing popularity of "Sons of Anarchy," which was created by her husband, Kurt Sutter, she still finds time for her first love -- music. She often performs at the intimate M Club in Hollywood. As she sat in one of the club's booth, she talked about TV bikers and the late John Ritter.

This is a goddamned Beatles post: "The Beatles: Here, There And Everywhere" coming soon.



Coming later this month from Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music, The Beatles: Here, There And Everywhere is a three-part radio series celebrating of the best selling group of the 21st Century in America - The Beatles! Syndicated in conjuction with FMQB Productions, Here, There And Everywhere is the only Beatles special officially sanctioned by the Fab Four's label, Apple Corps.

The series features The Beatles' digitally remastered recordings and exclusive new interviews with a variety of artists and producers as they reveal the influence of The Beatles on their individual careers. Listeners will be treated to stories from Brian Wilson, Tom Petty, Dave Grohl, Slash, Jeff Lynne, Ann Wilson, Nancy Wilson, Peter Asher, Jackson Browne, Bob Seger, T-Bone Burnett, Cameron Crowe, Mika, Mark Ronson, Susan Werner, Rick Rubin and Joe Boyd.

The Beatles: Here, There And Everywhere is available to run from 11/27/09 - 1/3/10, making it the perfect program for radio stations looking to fill time during the holiday season. Interested radio stations should contact their FMQB rep for details.

Written and produced by Kevin Howlett, each of the three 48-minute installments of The Beatles: Here, There And Everywhere take a different thematic approach:

Part One: Meet The Beatles!The interviewees recorded exclusively for this series reveal the impact made upon them by The Beatles’ records from throughout their career. We hear Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, Tom Petty, film director Cameron Crowe and Ann & Nancy Wilson (of Heart) talking about their first-hand experience of The Beatles’ phenomenal 1964 breakthrough in the United States. Dave Grohl, Mark Ronson and Slash discuss the enduring influence of albums such as Rubber Soul, Revolver and Abbey Road.
Part Two: Ask Me Why
The interviewees focus on the various elements within the group that combined to make The Beatles so musically powerful: their strengths as performers - both instrumentally and vocally - plus the brilliance of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison as songwriters.
Part Three: The Beatles On The Record
We hear how The Beatles’ music was captured on record with the help of innovative arrangements and adventurous production by George Martin. Some of today’s leading record producers - Peter Asher, Joe Boyd, T-Bone Burnett, Jeff Lynne, Mark Ronson and Rick Rubin - marvel at the dazzling creativity evident in recordings made more than 40 years ago.

Dude, The Beatles, Tom Petty and Dave Grohl in one radio series? Count me the fuck in. What's your favourite Beatles album and song, ONTD? Mine is "Revolver" and "Maxwell's Silver Hammer".

Oh my god



Lindsay Lohan's father has been accused of hunting out strippers who look like his famous daughter.

Despite Michael Lohan's denials, Elliot Osher, a former owner of New York's most famous strip club Scores, insists the troubled dad made the bizarre request when he visited.

The weird request, which Osher did not give a date for, is part of a book he plans to write about many of the celeb visitors to the sexy hot spot.

"Lindsay Lohan's father once sat down and described the kind of dancer he was looking for," Osher insisted.

"We sent some girls over. Funny, they all seemed to look like Lindsay.

"We ended up having to show him to the door."

Michael Lohan admits getting into an "altercation" at Scores, but insisted: "No girls danced for me.

"The last thing I'd want to see is a girl who looked like Lindsay. I don't even look at the magazines where she's done some risque photos."

But Osher insisted: "Maybe he just doesn't remember."

Osher worked at Scores for 18 years, starting out as a bouncer.

Among the anecdotes in his planned book he claims Madonna stiffed the staff, Bill Gates left a $3,500 tip, Bernie Madoff "wanted a private room" and Russell Crowe "almost got in a fight with an Irish waiter".

Lock of Elvis' hair sold for £1,055



A strand of hair from Elvis Presley, saved by his personal barber, has raised £1,055 at auction.

Homer Gill Gilleland toured with Elvis for more than 20 years. He dyed the singer's hair black and then cut it, saving strands in a towel.

Friends of Mr Gilleland said he would then bundle up the towel, with hair inside, and take it home in a bag.

The piece of hair had been expected to fetch up to £250 at Saturday's auction in Devizes, Wiltshire.

After Elvis's death in 1977, Mr Gilleland is said to have started selling strands of the hair in a souvenir shop on the street opposite the singer's home Graceland in Memphis in the US.

The strand which was auctioned was given to Thomas B Morgan Jnr in 2002 by the barber. Mr Morgan worked in the Sheriff's Office of Shelby County and knew Elvis.

The hair, which comes with a certificate of authenticity, is mounted in a frame alongside a photograph of Elvis.

It was auctioned at Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes.

In November 2002, a strand of Elvis's hair sold for 115,000 US dollars (about £70,000) in an internet auction.

An interview with the voice of Cascada, Natalie Horler (b/c there isn't enough dance music on ONTD)



Twenty-eight-year-old Natalie Horler is the face of Cascada, and it’s her powerful voice which sets the German Eurodance outfit apart in a genre where artists are often interchangeably anodyne. Part girl-next-door, part Ann Summers catalogue vixen, her image is at once fun and assertive with a charmingly cheeky edge.

Third album 'Evacuate the Dancefloor', released earlier this year, has seen Cascada expand their musical range, with some tracks coming much closer in style to the glossy R&B of Lady Gaga than the beat-heavy Eurodance of DDR games and fairground rides. Riding high on the success of the title track and first single, they're soon embarking on a Clubland tour with N-Dubz, Darren Styles and Agnes, which includes a date at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on 5 December.

I caught up with the bubbly Horler on a long-distance phone call to Germany, where she resides, to get the dirt on Cascada's new sound, their upcoming UK tour and her take on London.


Hi Natalie. Firstly, I'd like to clarify: are you considered to be Cascada, or are you the image and vocalist of what is, in fact, a group?

Natalie Horler: We actually are a group. I work with two producers [Yanou and Manian] and the three of us make up Cascada. They just don't come on tour, that's all; I do the whole live bit and they do all the producing. They've always chosen to stay low-profile where I've always been the face of everything, that's why sometimes there's a misconception.

What about the song-writing, is that a collective process?

NH: Yes. Although Yanou and Manian do most of that... Yanou is the brains behind it.

THIS IS A POST ABOUT A SEXY PERSON

A Minute With: Michael Fassbender and his "Fish Tank"

He may not be a household name in the United States, but Michael Fassbender is fast becoming one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood.

The actor got his big break when Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks cast him in their "Band of Brothers" World War Two mini-series. He also appeared in the hit movie "300." In August, Fassbender drew acclaim for his portrayal of undercover British military man Archie Hicox in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

Slipknot Singer Weds In Vegas

.(Possible wife?)

It was a rockin' affair when the lead singer of Slipknot tied the knot Friday.

Corey Taylor married Stephanie Luby at Las Vegas's Palms Hotel, where the wedding party walked down the aisle to Metallica's "For Whom The Bell Tolls." (Should have been "Harvester of Sorrow")

The 350 wedding guests who packed the hotel's Pearl Concert Theater – fitting since the wedding quickly turned into a concert – included Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath, as well as Camp Freddy's Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison, who acted as the minister. To no one's surprise, the rockers all took the stage, a source said, and even the groom joined in on three songs.

Slipknot, known for its hard rock and the clown-like masks they wear on stage, won a Grammy in 2004 for their single "Before I Forget."

Lopez fits right in with Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier.

In a sit-down interview with "Extra," Pelletier -- who is nicknamed "Slater Jr." -- joked to Lopez that, "when we were casting this thing I thought I was gonna lose my role out to you."

Added Meraz, "You're the missing wolf pack member!"

Taylor Lautner says it's "definitely a possibility" that Lopez could join the pack. Stewart was more sure. "You totally could be," she said.

"We'll get you in there," Spencer promised.

Boozy Prince Harry kisses fella for free Stella

YOU'D think it would take a lot of bottle to ask a Prince for a kiss - especially if you're a GAY BLOKE.




But male admirer Rocky Bennett got a smacker from Prince Harry in exchange for a LITTLE BOTTLE . . .

. . . one full of the fun-loving royal's favourite brew, "reassuringly expensive" Stella Artois lager.

The starstruck 21-year-old made his cheeky move when he spotted the royal boozing in a club.

Ricky grinned: "I went up to him and told him I would love to buy him a drink - if he gave me a kiss, Harry just burst out laughing, threw his arms around me and kissed me on the left cheek.

"I'm not going to wash my face for a month now!"


What Harry's on-off lover Chelsy Davy would make of his latest club kissing session remains to be seen.

What Harry's on-off lover Chelsy Davy would make of his latest club kissing session remains to be seen.

But Rocky, a petrol station manager, said: "It was the best moment of my life. I just burst into tears, he's so down to earth."

The bizarre encounter came as Harry, 25, enjoyed a midweek night out in Stevenage, Herts, away from his usual West End haunts. The prince and his fellow trainee pilots chose the Liquid nightclub close to RAF Henlow. "It was so crazy to see Harry out in Stevenage," explained Rocky. "It's not exactly the most exotic place. He went upstairs to the VIP lounge at first but then came down to the main bar.

"He was with about eight other guys and security was tight but when I went over to him he was lovely. I told him how much I had admired his mother Princess Diana and how I thought she would be proud of him.

"He seemed very merry but he was still willing to talk to people. So I went to the bar to buy him a drink and got my kiss."
