Cheryl Cole hated Girls Aloud hit

Cole reveals that she thought the Girls Aloud hit Love Machine was ‘crap’.


Cheryl Cole has revealed that she hated the Girls Aloud hit Love Machine when first hearing it.

The song, which was the second single off of the album What Will the Neighbours Say, reached number two in the charts in 2004.

However, the song was not appreciated by X Factor judge and footballer's wife Cole, who has revealed that she thought the song was “crap” when it was first presented to her.

The 26-year-old recently told Q: "I remember listening to 'Love Machine' and thinking, 'We cannot put this crap out'. That’s what I said to the label: 'It sounds like something Busted would do!'"

The band, created in 2002 off the back of the talent show Popstars: The Rivals, went on to produce a string of 20 consecutive UK Top 10 singles, four of which were number ones.

Consisting of singers Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Cole, the girls have sold 10 million records worldwide and become a household name, with the recent success of Cheryl Cole aiding their popularity.

In 2009, the band announced they were taking a year-long break to pursue solo projects, but plan to reunite for a new studio album in 2010.

Cole released her debut album 3 words while working as a judge on this year’s X Factor, with her single Fight For This Love holding the number one spot for two consecutive weeks and taking the title of the fastest-selling single of 2009.


Cops Describe Craziness at Sheen House

An Aspen cop wrote a sworn statement saying Brooke Mueller told authorities Charlie Sheen had done this to her before -- this according to the officer's affidavit obtained by TMZ. And Mueller told cops Sheen held her down at knifepoint and threatened to have her killed if she told anyone.

Officer Rick Magnuson says in the affidavit when he responded to the location, dispatch had told him that the knife Sheen had allegedly threatened Mueller with was a switchblade, "like a pocket knife."

Magnuson says when he arrived he did not notice "any obvious injuries" on Mueller. When Magnuson arrived, Sheen was upstairs and Mueller was in the kitchen.

Sheen says the catalyst for the argument was when he "shared a song for his daughter whom he fathered with another woman" which made Mueller jealous.

Listen up!

Roman Polanski wrote a letter to his *supporters and friends* expressing his gratitude during this difficult time. Bernard-Henri Lévy was so kind to share it with the rest of us.

My dear Bernard-Henri Lévy, what you have said in the Swiss press is true -- I have been overwhelmed by the number of messages of support and sympathy I have received in Winterthur prison, and that I continue to receive here, in my chalet in Gstaad, where I am spending the holidays with my wife and my children.

These messages have come from my neighbors, from people all over Switzerland, and from beyond Switzerland -- from across the world. I would like every one of them to know how heartening it is, when one is locked up in a cell, to hear this murmur of human voices and of solidarity in the morning mail. In the darkest moments, each of their notes has been a source of comfort and hope, and they continue to be so in my current situation.

I would like to be able to answer all of them. But it is impossible: there are too many. Do you have any suggestions as to how I could reply? Perhaps in your journal, La Règle du jeu, which has supported me from the very first day? Perhaps you could disseminate these few words I'm sending you? I don't know. I'll leave it up to you.
Happy holidays to you and yours -- and, through you, to all of these unknown friends whom I am discovering day after day, and who have helped me so much.
My warmest regards,
Roman Polanski

hmm...ok, thanks for reminding us you spent the holidays in your chalet in Gstaad with your wife and children, you know, exactly where child molesters are suppose to be. My god...I wish I knew his address to send him a letter of my own...

Deadline's DVD Cover Art Controversy

When Heath Ledger passed away, some groups wanted Warner Bros to remove a scene from "The Dark Knight" that shows the actor hiding in a body bag. Director Christopher Nolan kept the scene, leaving lots of people offended.

Now that Brittany Murphy has passed away, stores are scrambling to avoid anything that could be misinterpreted, like displaying the DVD for her "Deadline" horror film, which features the actress lying lifeless in a bath on the cover.

First Look Studios' film starring the late Brittany Murphy is in the middle of a scuffle with morality at the moment. The unfortunately now-offensive cover art to Deadline is being pulled across the 'net and in the physical form, as well.

TMZ is reporting that the independent studio will be changing the ironic artwork for the Brittany Murphy film, following her death on December 20th. The box art included Brittany Murphy lying in a bathtub, apparently dead – the actress passed away in her shower of cardiac arrest.

Redbox has already pulled the artwork from their rental kiosks. The film itself was released on December 1st, several weeks before the actresses' death. The old and new versions of the art are displayed above.

What do you think of the controversy surrounding "Deadline"?

Taylor Lautner & Taylor Swift : Splitsville

Unable to take their relationship long-term, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner have decided to pull the plug on their romance after three months of being an item.

Of the split, an insider tells Us magazine, “It wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends. There was no chemistry, and it felt contrived.”

Apparently, the two Taylors relationship went downhill after Mr Lautner paid Miss Swift a birthday visit in Nashville earlier this month.

“He liked her more than she liked him,” the source tells Us. “He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn’t travel much to see him.”

Meanwhile, the “Valentine’s Day” co-stars have seemingly found a way to amicably part ways, as the insider tells, “They plan to stay friends.”

The New Will-They-Won’t-They: Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs (BlackBook Magazine)

The New Will-They-Won’t-They: Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs
By Natasha Vargas-Cooper
December 28, 2009

“Ninety percent of everything on television sucks and 10 percent has never been better,” says the endearingly snarky comedian Joel McHale. And with his feetplanted firmly on both sides of the quality divide, he’d know best. The quip-spewer skewers the 90 percent as host of E!’s reality TV mockfest The Soup, a gig he’s held for five years and has no plans to give up. “There’s never going to be a lack of material,” he says. “Not as long as Bret Michaels does another show.” He balances out the primetime offal by playing the leading man on a 10-percent production, NBC’s uproarious Community.

Joining McHale on the ensemble sitcom is Gillian Jacobs, who matches him jibe for knowing jibe as the Diane to McHale’s Sam, a committed and equal partner in flirt. The actress brings a unique, appealing edge to the part—what she describes as “a strange combination of vulnerability and protective exterior”—that has McHale’s character, and audiences, hooked. Jacobs, who has played her share of drug-addled bad girls and damsels in distress in fringe films such as Choke and The Box, has got a comedic gold standard, an amalgam of Claudette Colbert and Lucille Ball, that sums up what makes Community so damn good. “It’s dry, smart and cerebral,” she says. “But also really silly.”

BlackBook: So I know a little bit about your background but why don’t tell me a little about yourself.
Joel McHale: Why don’t you tell me what you looked up on Wikipedia!

Do you know why you’re here?
I have no idea.

It’s all about who we think in Hollywood could be online predators, and you’re number the number one candidate.
That I would be a predator?

Yeah, we think you’d be a great online predator!
Like a pedophile?

No, not just it’s not just pedophiles but about people that creep on the internet.
I wish I had time to creep on the internet. You mean like stalking young women or...?

Chatting, chatting young women.
I’ve never been in a chat room in my life.

What, are you faxing these women?
I stalk the MSNBC website or the BBC website…

Oh, that’s so erudite. Look at you! Okay, what it’s actually on is called The New Regime and it’s about new emerging talent.

Casting Couch Blind Item

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It was mystifying several years ago why she was hyped the way she was hyped. Just another starlet with no real significant starring vehicles somehow ending up with a prestigious magazine cover proclaiming her as the next It. Well It never happened. And after all this time and a string of failures, she’s been trying to change the course. So she’s gone back to the major player who tried to make it happen for her the first time. There was an arrangement back then – her sexual services for his professional services – and apparently the same arrangement was resurrected recently in the hopes that she’ll finally confirm a juicy role to kickstart a stagnant career.

Never mind that he’s married. His wife benefits handsomely from his generosity and while he may not fulfill her with fidelity, he certainly makes up for it through client exchange. Probably better that way. And given what he looks like, it totally makes sense. But he is a legend in the business both for his accomplishments and for the way he leads these ladies to their accomplishments, counting a couple of award winners and a few box office heavyweights on his resumé…which is why he quickly tired of our poor girl and discarded her.

But not before drying her out. One day late summer, they were joined in a hotel suite by a third gentleman (identity insignificant), both of them enjoying her as she allowed herself to be taken, and, um, decorated appropriately, all for a reward at the end of the session – the privilege of simply looking at a script, no promise, no confirmation…just an advance read. And a suggestion to show up at a premiere for a few introductions. She is so desperate, it’s been so meagre, she submitted to the humiliation although gamely seems to have enjoyed it. An actor after all, obviously able to shut out her husband and child waiting for her back at home.

And then he just cut it off. Told her he could no longer help her. That her body in his bed was no longer required. Which of course only added to her degradation. She tried and tried to offer up more, willing to engage in further depravity, but was only met with rejection. Because he’s moved on. He’s hunting his next target. A young, nubile, blonde babe with a large profile and a perky rack who so far has been able to resist his advances but is trying to graduate from supporting roles in film, as the fact that she’s a headliner on the small screen has not helped with the quality of scripts she’s being offered, or with many of her auditions so far. She’s currently waiting on a big break and he’s trying to make sure it doesn’t happen, so that in her disappointment, she’ll come running to him, ready to wheel and deal.

Note: there are 4 famous names at play – the reject, the replacement, the power player, and his wife.


I'm terrible at these, but my guesses: Reject = Jessica Alba (edit: ONTD consensus = Gretchen Mol), Replacement = Blake Lively, Power player = Harvey Weinstein, and his Wife = Georgina Chapman

Katie Holmes Wants a Tattoo


This comes as a shocker! Katie Holmes is reportedly desperate to get a tattoo but her husband is not really keen on the idea.

Katie got the idea after seeing Victoria Beckham's tattoo on her wrist. Beckham got the tattoo in Hebrew words saying ‘Together, Forever, Eternally’ to mark her 10 year anniversary with her husband.

Tom doesn't really seem like a tattoo kind of guy so he is not really in love with the idea of Katie getting inked. A source said: “He’s desperately trying to talk her out of getting the tattoo.”

David and Victoria make tattoos look so sexy that every time we see a picture of them we want to get inked. But Katie doesn't seem like the type of girl to get a tattoo either so maybe she's just trying to be a bit of a rebel.

Sam Worthington to play Flash Gordon?

Hollywood is currently shut down for the holidays, but that's not stopping a few casting rumors from leaking out. According to Hollyscoop (who are probably just as reliable as the dude who sells dope on the corner near your house), both Sam Worthington and Ryan Reynolds are two of only a handful of actors on the Flash Gordon shortlist. Hollyscoop' source is, of course, one of those shady "Hollywood insiders", though we already know they're gearing up this film for a potential 2012 release, and so I'm sure there's a little bit of truth here, especially since Worthington and Reynolds would be the go-to frontrunners for these types of roles (I wouldn't be surprised if we hear Worthington mentioned for Captain America, too).

"But he's Australian!", you might scream. That's why one insider says it could be a pretty big deal if Worthington lands the part of the All-American Flash Gordon, an American football player who finds himself and his girlfriend as unwilling passengers onboard a rocket ship heading to the planet Mongo, ruled by the evil Emperor Ming the Merciless. Since Reynolds already has Green Lantern and Deadpool on his plate, I can't imagine he'd slide into the role. But Worthington, who's been starring in what feels like every big, effects-heavy film to hit theaters even though he's not all that memorable of an actor, might be a good fit (and based on his performance in Avatar, we know he can pull off tough, American jock quite well.

Breck Eisner, who's finishing up The Crazies as we speak, is still in line to helm Flash Gordon off a script from Mike Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Speaking about the project earlier this year, Eisner said, "The thing about 'Flash' is, you've got to throw away the 80s version of it ..."
... "For me it's about reinventing 'Flash' - we're still staying true to the adventure origins of it, and the adventurous spirit in that movie, absolutely. It's this man brought to another planet and uniting the disparate groups on Mongo, but there is a gritty, intense, dynamic, active quality to the movie. Very modern. It's not camp."

Taylor Momsen says she’s sick of people reminding her that she’s only 16!

The Gossip Girl actress and rocker told Seventeen magazine, “I think people don’t really take me seriously because I’m 16. And they think most 16-year-olds don’t know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I’ve been thinking about it since I was [two-years-old].”

And just like most teenagers, Taylor admits, “I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s*** out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.”

As the lead singer of her band The Pretty Wreckless, Taylor admits, “I love working. I’m a workaholic, and no one believes it. I’m in the recording studio until three in the morning.”

Taylor, we’ve all been there! Have you ever worked hard to live your dream, only to have people tell you that you’re too young to be taken seriously? —Corynne Steindler

Pussycat Dolls Split - Kind Of


Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin has confirmed she is rebuilding the girl group around singer Nicole Scherzinger after a year of turmoil and public bickering. Reports have suggested the group is splitting up, but Antin maintains the Dolls will be back in 2010 - stronger than ever.

She tells MTV News she's planning collaborations with Fergie and Snoop Dogg, and fans can expect to see a few new faces in the band.

She explains, "It's Nicole and... a couple new faces. Some of the girls want to go and do their own thing. We're moving on."

The announcement comes a month after Antin dismissed ongoing split rumors, which suggested Scherzinger was no longer in contact with the rest of the band.

In a statement, she wrote, "The Pussycat Dolls are very much ALIVE and there is NO truth to the silent treatment statements.

"Nicole and the Dolls have ALWAYS been close. Nicole is and always has been a strong creative force within this group and I cherish the way we collaborate."

First look: Jane Lynch on The Cleveland Show

Glee’s fire-breathing badass Jane Lynch will show off a whole new side to herself on the Jan. 10 episode of The Cleveland Show when she debuts as Roberta’s brusque, no-nonsense new teacher Ms. Eck. To mark her toonful new gig on the Family Guy spinoff, the Golden Globe- nominated actress graciously agreed to participate in the following mini-interrogation.

Are you a fan of Family Guy?
I love Family Guy. I am also appalled and shocked by Family Guy. And I am proud to say that several children in my family under the age of 10 get it and love it, too.

How is Ms. Eck similar to Sue Sylvester?
They both lack filters and say whatever awful thing comes into their mind. In-the-head-and-out-the-mouth syndrome.

And how are they different?
Ms. Eck lacks Sue’s icy Nordic aggression.

Your first reaction upon viewing yourself in ‘toon form?
Ms. Eck may have the largest, most disproportionate butt in cartoon history.

James McAvoy to Play Bond Author Ian Fleming?

Scotland may not have gotten one of their own as James Bond, but they'll get the next best thing -- a Scot as the creator of James Bond. Pajiba reports that James McAvoy is attached to play author Ian Fleming in a big screen biopic. The project is currently hunting for a director, though Matt Brown has penned the script from Andrew Lycett's biography.

As Bond fans know, Fleming had a life and personality that mirrored his famous creation. He came from a posh Scottish banking family, and was a world traveler from a very early age. During World War 2, he was recruited from the Black Watch into Royal Navy Intelligence where he was the brainpower behind plans like Operation Goldeneye. His military background gave him a wealth of ideas for his Bond novels, and he eventually retired to Jamaica where he'd pen Casino Royale. By his own admission he always drank too much, smoke too much, and loved too many women -- all of which contributed to an early death at only 56 years old.

McAvoy has the right polish to be Fleming. It's a role better suited to him than his Wanted assassin, and his youth certainly works for Fleming's most exciting years. But considering Fleming was 44 years old when he began drafting his first Bond novel, I think they should have looked to an older Scotsman for the role. Kevin McKidd would have been better -- he looks more like Fleming, and he's mature enough for the Jamaica years. What do you think of McAvoy as the father of your favorite spy?

There, they modeled the most iconic Hollywood looks of the past few years. And they pulled it off like the A-list pros -- including Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox -- they were emulating. "I like to walk into the room and have everyone notice what I'm wearing," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tells Life & Style. Mission accomplished!

Now, the party don't start 'til I walk in

It's our final iTunes Chart Watch for 2009, and it ends with Ke$ha and Owl City at the top of the singles and albums charts, respectively.

I angered Owl City fans earlier this year and I don't feel a bit bad about it. What I do feel bad about is taunting my niece when I found out she got the CD for Christmas. I shouldn't have teased her but I feel like I've failed her. She likes that song. What kind of uncle am I where I can allow something like that to happen? I fear for the younger generation. It's a good thing 2009 is coming to a close. For the first time in a few years I'm actually considering writing some New Year's Resolutions and tracking my progress. This might be an area I address. I need to save as many of the younger generation as possible, but I'm only one man!

The iTunes charts usually seem to trend a little younger and it's no surprise that would be the case looking at some of these singles and albums. Unless I miss my guess, a lot of these were purchased with gift cards given as Christmas presents. I can't do anything about parental supervision, but these charts would look different if I could.

God obviously is a fan of GOOD comedy

NEW YORK – Comedy Central won't be renewing "The Jeff Dunham Show" for a second season.

The show, featuring comedian Jeff Dunham and his repertoire of puppets, attracted plenty of attention, both positive and negative. Its debut drew 5.3 million viewers, a season premiere record for Comedy Central. But all most of the reviews were terrible, and ratings dwindled during the season.

Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albani says the network will continue "to be in business with Jeff in a big way," including a live tour, standup special, DVDs and consumer-products partnership.

Comedy Central signed a multi-platform deal with Dunham in March.;_ylt=AitvS3JiNyOdEc3Paodow5Ss0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTFrNW03Z2ZzBHBvcwMxNjUEc2VjA2FjY29yZGlvbl9lbnRlcnRhaW5tZW50BHNsawNjb21lZHljZW50cmE-


Le Morte d'Magneto
Young Magnus, we hardly knew ye.

by Scott Collura

December 22, 2009 - Yeah, so that young Magneto movie that David Goyer was supposedly working on? It's dead. Not that this news comes as any great surprise to anyone who has even sorta been following the development of Fox's X-Men franchise lately.

Aside from the complete and utter lack of forward momentum on the project in recent months, word came last week that Bryan Singer was returning to the franchise he started to direct X-Men: First Class, an origin/prequel tale about Marvel's band of merry mutants. The thing is, part of that story is to involve the young Magneto and his relationship with the young Professor Xavier. That seemed to be the nail in the Magneto solo-film coffin, and now Singer has pretty much confirmed as much.

"This story would probably utilize some of the Magneto story because it deals with a young Magneto, so it might supersede that because this would explore that relationship between a young energetic professor and a disenfranchised victim of the Holocaust," the director tells The Hollywood Reporter. "But no, I don't see an exhaustion [of the franchise]. The X-Men universe is boundless. These are great characters. And as young characters, they are quite different than the characters we have seen in the contemporary movies."

Singer also says that in all likelihood his other project, Jack the Giant Killer, will go into production before First Class.

Actress Alexandra Daddario Talks About “Percy Jackson & the Olympians"

Alexandra Daddario
A lead role in a fantasy blockbuster has certainly proved an effective launching pad for starlets lately (see Kristen Stewart in “Twilight” and Emma Watson in the Harry Potter series). That’s good news for up-and-comer Alexandra Daddario, who appears in the big-budget film “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” which hits theaters in February.

Based on a best-selling book series by Rick Riordan about a boy who discovers he is a descendant of Greek gods, “Percy” stars Hollywood heavies including Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, Pierce Brosnan, Catherine Keener and Steve Coogan. (Seventeen-year-old newcomer Logan Lerman plays the flick’s title role.) “Greek gods are so human in so many ways — they love and they hate and they get jealous — and that’s what makes the stories about them so exciting,” explains the actress.

At 23, Daddario hasn’t exactly been pounding the pavement for too long. The New York City native began acting in commercials in elementary school before landing steadier work on “All My Children” at 16. (She transferred from tony Upper East Side all-girls’ school Brearley to the Professional Children’s School to focus on the business full time.) Daddario also appears as Kate in “White Collar,” USA Network’s new crime caper series, which returns in January.

Off screen, the actress is adjusting to life in Los Angeles, where she just relocated, and is enjoying some of the new tricks she picked up on the set of “Percy,” like archery and fencing. “Though I don’t know if I could get into an actual sword fight if I had the chance,” she admits.



Bartha set for Broadway bow?

'Hangover' star tunes up for 'Lend Me a Tenor'
Justin Bartha appears poised to make his Broadway debut, stepping into the role originally announced for T.R. Knight in the upcoming revival of "Lend Me a Tenor," directed by Stanley Tucci.

While reps for the production would not confirm Bartha's casting, the star of "The Hangover" and the "National Treasure" pics is listed among the cast on Telecharge, the show's official online ticket outlet.

Bartha would play Max, assistant to the general manager of the Cleveland Opera Company, in Ken Ludwig's 1930s-set screwball comedy. Max is forced to don blackface and take the place of a temperamental star at a gala performance of "Othello" when the latter has a meltdown and is unable to go on.

The role was played by Victor Garber in the 1989 Broadway premiere. Knight dropped out of the revival prior to the announcement of dates last week.

The show begins previews March 11 for an April 4 opening at the Music Box Theater. The Araca Group and Stuart Thompson are among lead producers.

Confirmed cast includes Anthony LaPaglia, Tony Shalhoub, Jan Maxwell, Mary Catherine Garrison, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Jay Klaitz and Brooke Adams. Tucci makes his Broadway directing bow on the play.

The Jersey Shore Wants Nothing to Do with Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore wants you to know the only thing it shares with MTV's Jersey Shore is a name.

The Borough of Seaside Heights, N.J., the setting of the controversial reality series, is downplaying its association with The Situation & Co. and says that the behavior portrayed on the show is "not indicative" of the majority of its visitors.

"The governing body wants it to be known that they did not solicit, promote or participate in the filming of this show," John Camera, borough administrator, said in a statement. "The production company that filmed the show did obtain a shoot permit to film in Seaside Heights, but these permits must be issued as it is a first amendment right to film in public places. Furthermore, the Borough does not condone any discriminatory remarks against Italian Americans, domestic violence or the promiscuous and otherwise bad behavior portrayed on the show."

The town, of course, isn't the only group speaking out against Jersey Shore, which follows eight self-proclaimed "guidos" and "guidettes" during their summer stay on the shore. UNICO, the largest Italian-American organization in the U.S., has been pressuring MTV to cancel the series since before its Dec. 3 premiere because of its stereotypical portrayal of Italian-Americans.

Last week, the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus urged the network to cancel the "wildly offensive" Jersey Shore, which has already lost three advertisers: Domino's, American Family League and Dell.

The negative attention hasn't affected the show's ratings, which have risen steadily since its premiere, attracting 2.5 million viewers for its most recent episode.

An Interview with Joe Manganiello (Alcide on "True Blood")

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How did you find out that you won the role?
I had three meetings with Alan Ball. [After the last one], I got a call from my agent and manager. And whenever you get a call from your agent and manager, you have a pretty good idea that something good is about to happen.

What was your reaction when they told you?
I’m not afraid to admit that I started crying. I was just so excited. It’s a dream come true. When I was a little kid, the nun at my elementary school said if you pray for something hard enough, it’ll happen. And I would pray every day with all of my heart that God would turn me into a werewolf. And when it didn’t happen, I kind of thought, “You know what? Maybe this stuff doesn’t work. Maybe I’m getting gypped.” So here it is 25 years later and my prayers got answered and I’m going to be a werewolf.

‘Jersey Shore’ Star Snooki Talks Boobs, Guidos & Drinking at Work

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
What do you say to people who think the show is derogatory toward Italians?
People need to relax. It’s just young people having a good time at the Shore. We want to have fun, and yeah we get drunk. It’s just a TV show.

There have been a lot of hookups in the beach house.
Probably at least a hundred alone from Mike and Pauly. Me and Mike hooked up. Jenni and Pauly hooked up. And Ron and Sam — they’re still together.

A few of the girls already had boyfriends before the show.
It’s a very bad idea to come to the Shore with a boyfriend. You’re going to cheat. Angelina cheated. And Jenni cheated — but she and her boyfriend are still together as far as I know.

Alien Sex Scenes Cut from Avatar May Pop Up in DVD

For those of you who have seen the movie already, you're aware of the very brief scene depicting the coupling of Jake Sully's (played by Sam Worthington) avatar body with the alien Na'vi, Ney'tiri (Zoe Saldana). Very little was shown of that encounter, but you may get your chance to see exactly how the Na'vi "do it" when the DVD comes out, said Cameron in a recent group interview.
We had it in and we cut it out. So that will be something for the special edition DVD, if you want to see how they have sex.
If you guessed that the strange tendrils the Na'vi use to connect or "sync" with other creatures on Pandora might have something to do with how they "get their groove on," you would be right, according to Saldana.
If you sync to your banshee and you’re syncing to a tree, why not sync into a person? I almost feel like you’ll have the most amazing orgasm, I guess. It was a very funny scene to shoot because there were so many technical things that sometimes you have to keep in mind that paying attention to all those might disrupt the fluidity of how a scene is supposed to take place.
And because Jim was shooting for a PG-13 rating, we couldn’t move in certain directions. The motion would look a little too past the PG-13 rating standards. So it was really funny for Sam and me. We had a lot of giggles there.

People's Choice Awards update .

You can view the nominees in this post and vote here

Obviously a fan favorite, The Twilight Saga: New Moon is going to have a strong presence at this year's People's Choice Awards set to take place on January 6th and will be graced with the presence of both Kellan Lutz and the newly single Taylor Lautner.

Kellan has earned himself a nomination for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor, while Twilight is up for Favorite Movie, as well as On-Screen Team, recognizing its stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

Queen Latifah is hosting and performing for the event and while I'm sure she'll do a great job, it will be hard to hold the audience's attention what with all he werewolves and vampires in attendance. They tend to steal the spotlight, what with all the fangs and hair.

Hugh Jackman, Mariah Carey, Sandra Bullock, Steve Carell, Carrie Underwood, Ellen DeGeneres and LL Cool J are also set to attend the celebrity-filled ceremony on Jan. 6 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The show will be broadcast live on CBS.

Executive producer Mark Burnett says the stars “are coming out in droves to thank the fans for their love and support.”

The 3 Universal Truths of 'Law & Order'

I’ve been on a Law and Order binge this holiday season. As every human with eyes and couches knows, this entails watching roughly more hours of Law and Order per day than there are hours in a given day for more days than there are days, and it’s such a common occurrence in humanity, I don’t even feel the need to acknowledge this practice as unusual or even really noteworthy.

So I’m writing this post not to brag about amateur tv-addict behaviour (Britishized for class), but to point out three universal observations about the show that we’ve all noticed and all pointed out before, but which require cataloging here so that when future alien civilizations discover Law and Order and in that order, they’ll be all like, “Yeah I know, right???” Then they’ll be like “Blaxnorff!!!” cause they’re aliens and only speak some English.

John Mulaney has a comprehensive standup bit about L&O that covers the universal basics of the show with superhuman accuracy — Jerry Orbach’s before-the-commercial corpse wisecracks, the New York bartender who remembers everyone, the vague and lame pre-body discovery extras dialogue, and so on — but the show is so ubiquitous, so unapologetically formulaic, and still so inexplicably addictive after all these years, I feel the list of universally accepted L&O rules needs to be expanded.

To pre-emptively avoid rambling forever, I’ve kept the list to just three. Without murder ado (typing that hurt both of us), here are 3 Additional Universal Truths of Law & Order.

Bronx Wentz smiles in public, Pete's reps blame his black eye on being clumsy

Pete Wentz was seen sporting a black eye and busted up face while shopping in NYC yesterday with his son, Brooklyn Baloo or whatever, but don't worry, there's a totally reasonable, non-Ashlee Simpson-beating-him explanation for the bruises.

"The mean streets of NY got to him," his rep joked to

But a source close to the Fall Out Boy rocker, 30, tells Us he simply fell on the street and insists the bruise "is not as bad as it looks." (Source)

That's funny, usually when I fall down on the street -- not that I fall down on the street a lot or anything, (OK maybe I totally do and even did yesterday when I was distracted by some lady that got pulled over for not having a driver's license) -- I usually just scrape my knee of twist my ankle. A full-on busted up face is a new one, even for someone who totally doesn't but maybe actually does fall down in the street all the time. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you're going to lie about your wife beating the crap about you, at least make it believable. Like something involving a doorknob.

The writer of this article is a dumb bitch. Ashlee wasn't even around Pete when his face got busted. He clearly "fell" in SEATTLE.

Scarjo wont be going out this new years eve

Scarlett Johansson has vowed to stay in on December 31, declaring that she is "so over" New Year's Eve celebrations.

The Other Boleyn Girl actress said that she refuses to spend her final night of the decade at a party, and is instead planning to mark the occasion with a quiet night at home with husband Ryan Reynolds.

She told OK: "We're both working on New Year's Day anyway. So, we won't do much. You know, pizza would be nice, a little champagne. Maybe watch the Twilight Zone marathon. That's always a favorite for me.

"Going from one party to the next and surfing to find the right thing, and being in a taxicab when the clock strikes - I'm so over that stuff. At the ripe old age of 25.

"I have the most fun when I'm surrounded by people I love in one place that's comfortable and we can hear each other. You can play card games, watch movies - I'm happy."

Farrell plays secret Santa to ill children in Dublin hospital

HELLRAISER WITH HEART: Colin spends Christmas Day with patients

Tuesday December 29 2009

KIND-HEARTED new dad Colin Farrell paid a secret visit to sick children in Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin, on Christmas Day.

The In Bruges actor played and chatted with children for several hours on Christmas Day and also brought them presents.

And it wasn't his first festive visit -- he has carried out similarly unheralded visits to Crumlin for the past few years.

"He keeps a low profile when he comes in. He doesn't want photographers or anything," a well-placed source told the Herald about the actor's visits.

Eminem 'Agrees To Cut Out Homophobic Lyrics'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Eminem has agreed to cut-out any homophobic lyrics when he headlines a UK music festival next year.

The rapper, real name Marshall Mathers, will be performing at the Wireless Festival in July, 2010 and faced a backlash from gay rights activists OutRage! over some of his song words.

But Eminem has now agreed to tone down his lyrics.

OutRage! spokesman David Allison says in a statement: "We have a condition that he does not use lyrics that encourage or incite hatred against gay people.

"He is free to express his views on gay people, as long as he stays off the violence and hatred.
He has got plenty of other lyrics to choose from. In recent years he has become quite well-behaved.

"I think he realises singing songs advocating hate and violence just won't wash any more. Society's moved on in the last 10 years."

Megan Phelps' protest sign

The Phelps' family (of the Westboro Baptist Church) had earlier released a press release (which was posted a week ago on ONTD) that they are going to protest the Lady Gaga concert January 7th in St. Louis, MO. They claim that God hates all gays, and Lady Gaga loves all gays, therefore God hates Lady Gaga as well.

One of their daughters, Megan Phelps-Roper just posted her "God hates Lady Gaga" sign on her Twitter.

At least she's looking pretty fierce. /sarcasm

Part of me wants to picket their church the same day because I live about 20 minutes away.


M.I.A.'s Global Party: The Futuristic Pop Star on Her Decade's Journey

In 2000, you hadn't made any music yet.
No, I was on the dole. I got my first job, but it wasn't an ongoing job, I got to do Elastica's album cover in 2000. I would go in [to the unemployment office] and make really complicated job titles up that they couldn't find, and I got to know everyone on a first name basis, and I thought, "This is not good." That went on until 2003.

What was your vision for this decade and how does it compare to the reality?
I wanted to be a documentary filmmaker. That was the shit. I was obsessed with other people, and I liked traveling, and I felt an urgency to tell people's stories all the time. I was doing graphics, photography, but ultimately I wanted to make a documentary. I was still working at a shop when I had "Galang" out, and it was record of the week at Radio 1. People were in the shop saying, "What's going on, why are people calling?" I had no idea.

Who'll it be for John Abraham: Scarlett or Anne?

The international arena are definitely turning their heads and noticing Indian cinema. Starring in a Hindi film seems to be on everyone's to-do list. Kambakkht Ishq and Blue have been two of the latest releases to have roped in big Hollywood stars however the roles have been quite small. However looks like Shirish Khunder, Farah Khan and John Abraham are adamant to cast an A List Hollywood actress for their upcoming venture which is jointly produced by all three and has John in as leading star.

Buzz is that they're in talk with Scarlett Johansson (Vicky Christina Barcelona) and Anne Hathaway (Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada) for a leading role. The two ladies are said to be flying from LA to India to finalise the deal. However Shrisih is yet to fully confirm on this news. He gave a statement confirming many of the rumours, "The story has a tremendous international appeal. The female protagonist will be a foreigner or so we decided to cast a Hollywood actress for it. Today, actors abroad are aware of Indian cinema and are open to working in films here. We have the means and we are doing what's best for the film."

For the tl;dr crowd, Bollywood's looking to cast a young A-list actress in the movie "Alien Sahib" starring John Abraham. (Sahib, according to Wikipedia, can mean "owner/proprietor," but more likely "Your Grace," or "companion.")

Autopsy Found Inconclusive

Huntington Beach - An autopsy Tuesday on Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan was inconclusive as to the cause of the 28-year-old musician's death.

The Orange County coroner's office ordered "toxicology, microscopic and laboratory tests" to help determine why Sullivan died, according to Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Sheriff's-Coroner's office.

It's likely to take about weeks to get the results of those tests, officials said.

Tiger Woods 'had plastic surgery after wife battered him'

One of America's leading sportswriters has claimed Tiger Woods underwent reconstruction surgery after being smashed in the face with a golf club by his wife.

In what is described as the 'inside' account of what took place at Woods's home on the night he crashed his car, Furman Bisher said he was told Woods suffered a broken cheek bone and almost had his two front teeth knocked out.

He writes that the injuries are the real reason Woods has not been seen in public since the accident over five weeks ago.

Neither Woods nor his wife have yet to respond to the allegations and police have so far not provided any verification of their accuracy.

But Bisher, who wrote the account on his personal blog, is recognised as one of America's most respected sports journalists and is described as the country's top golf writer.

He claimed a trustworthy journalist colleague had sent him the information which he posted online to 'present the picture in its clearest form'.

Bisher describes in detail the events leading up to the crash outside Woods's Florida home and the 'cover up' that followed.

No restrictions on Rihanna wardrobe for Abu Dhabi gig

[follow up to this post]

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A British tabloid report claiming that Rihanna will have to tone down her raunchy performances for her New Year’s Eve concert in Abu Dhabi is “totally inaccurate” according to organisers Flash.

The Daily Mirror reported on Sunday that the Barbadian singer had been told to dress more conservatively for her concert in the UAE and that the star was now “tearing her hair out over what to do”.

It also reported that Rihanna is being paid $500,000 for the concert.

In a statement, organisers Flash rubbished the claims, saying ‘‘the facts and figures recently reported around Rihanna’s Abu Dhabi concert are totally inaccurate. Rihanna is bringing an incredible new stage show to the capital and there’s no doubt the event will be fantastic; an ideal way to celebrate the beginning of a new decade.”

Abu Dhabi has recently hosted concerts from international artists including The Killers, Aerosmith and Beyonce, all of whom performed their concerts without restrictions.

Thom Yorke, Damien Rice team up for Tibet documentary soundtrack

After going the Hollywood route earlier this year, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke will soon abandon vampires and Kristen Stewart for Tibet and, more specifically, a new documentary on the country’s ongoing freedom movement, titled When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun. As evident by the documentary’s homepage, the Radiohead frontman has teamed up with Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice (who most recently could be found busking with Bono) and American music composer Philip Glass for the film’s soundtrack.

The film promises to “show, for the first time, an inside perspective on the Tibetan movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, its internal conflicts and contradictions.” In addition to the soundtrack’s high-profile collaborators, the film features Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the 14th Dalai Lama, as well as Dennis Haysbert, who narrated the prologue.

Exact release dates for both the film and the soundtrack have yet to be unveiled, but, according to the film’s Facebook, the world premiere is set for early 2010. Check out the trailer here.

8 character types you might see on your TV

"People relate to them, project themselves onto them. The key is in how you update these characters, modernize them, give voice to them, and most importantly, cast them."

Martha Wainwright on having her bb in the UK!

BASICALLY: Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright's sister, went into labour at 30 weeks when she was on tour in the UK. She had an emergency Caesarean, giving birth to a boy called Arcangelo (her husband's grandfather's name). He has been in the neonatal unit for six weeks, and is doing well (yay!). She has a lot of praise for the NHS and the public health system, calling it 'the only equaliser left in society', and saying 'When you can take the exchange of money out of a life-and-death equation it gives people the chance to be as good as they can be'. She also says:
