STATEMENT REGARDING GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING SINGER MICHELLE WILLIAMS DISSOLVING HER MANAGEMENT ARRANGEMENT WITH MATHEW KNOWLES AND MUSIC WORLD ENTERTAINMENT

“After much prayer and consideration I have decided to part ways from my management team, Mathew Knowles and Music World Entertainment. From my time in Destiny’s Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me. We’ve shared great success together. However, as I move in a new direction in my career, I felt it was time. I wish Mathew Knowles and the Music World Entertainment family all the best.”

ABOUT MICHELLE WILLIAMS

This winter, Grammy Award-winning recording artist and actress Michelle Williams returns to Broadway as Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning hit musical CHICAGO for a seven-week limited engagement, Monday, February 8, 2010 through Sunday, March 28, 2010 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St.).

Michelle Williams first took on Roxie Hart last year to critical acclaim in London’s Cambridge Theatre, marking the first time an African American woman has played the role of Roxie Hart on London’s West End. Her limited engagement proved so successful that it was extended an additional three weeks by popular demand.

She made her Broadway stage debut in 2003, replacing R&B icon Toni Braxton in the title role of Disney’s Aida. In April 2007, she joined the national touring company of the hit musical The Color Purple, performing extended runs in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Phoenix with members of the original Broadway cast.

Michelle Williams also maintains her stake as a minority owner of the WNBA team, Chicago Sky.

Zach Galifianakis, Paul Rudd reteaming


Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd, who appear together in Paramount's upcoming comedy "Dinner for Schmucks," are teaming up again to star in the Paramount comedy "Will."

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are directing, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez on board to produce.

The story follows an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people's lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer (Galifianakis) has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted, ending up on a journey to fulfill his hidden potential.

The script, by Demetri Martin, used to be a DreamWorks project but moved over to Paramount.

UTA-repped Faris and Dayton became a hit directing duo with "Little Miss Sunshine" but have struggled to find a follow-up effort. They were attached to do "Used Guys" at Fox, but that fell apart due to a ballooning budget.

Rudd, repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, also appeared in Paramount's hit "I Love You, Man."

For Galifianakis, repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, "Will" continues his streak of booking high-profile comedies that began with "Hangover." He next appears in "Due Date" with Robert Downey Jr.

Usher Loses $1 Million in Car Burglary

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

R&B superstar Usher Raymond IV lost more than $1 million in jewelry, clothing and other items when someone broke into his SUV a few days before Christmas.

Atlanta police spokesman Eric Schwartz told the AJC on Tuesday that police have made no arrests in the Dec. 14 heist outside the AT&T store at 3431 Lenox Road, across from Lenox Square mall.

According to an Atlanta police report on the incident, Elijah Shaw, the Atlanta singer's bodyguard, told officers that he and Usher were returning from the airport when they stopped at the AT&T store.

Shaw told police that while they were inside the store, someone broke into the 2007 GMC Yukon and took two laptops, two garment bags, a laptop bag, a jewelry bag, four cameras and assorted clothing from the vehicle.

According to the report, the missing items included five watches, three necklaces, two rings and six bracelets valued at $1 million as well as a Louis Vuitton garment bag worth $3,000 and $50,000 in assorted clothing. Total value of items taken: $1,065,700.

The investigating officer determined that "the suspects popped a small hole on the bottom right corner of the door handle and entered the vehicle."

A witness told police that she saw a burgundy Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows pull up behind the Yukon and a black male in his early 20s wearing black pants, a white t-shirt, a black jacket and a black skull cap enter the SUV.

The man took items from the Yukon and loaded them into the Impala before getting into the passenger's seat of the Chevrolet, the witness told police

The witness said she was unable to see a tag number as the Impala pulled away.

M-Brod approves of Ferris Bueller remake ... doesn't want a fuckin thing to do with it, though

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Matthew Broderick has given Hollywood bosses the green light to remake his classic movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but doesn't want any involvement in it.

Rumours have swirled for months suggesting studio chiefs are nursing plans to bring the cult 1980s comedy back to the big screen in either a sequel or a remake.

Broderick has now commented on the reports, insisting he would be "happy" with plans to bring back rebellious teen Ferris, as long as the project is handed to a completely new cast.

He tells Cinematical, "(A remake) would be fine. I would be perfectly happy for somebody to do that. I probably wouldn't enjoy (having a role in the film). I would rather leave what we did as our thing."

The Most Anticipated Books of 2010

There’s something for every lover of fiction coming in 2010, but, oddly enough, the dominant theme may be posthumous publication. Roberto Bolaño’s relentless march into the canon has inured us to the idea of the bestseller from beyond the grave (and of course, for as long as there have been literary executors, this has been nothing new), but beyond the four(!) new books by Bolaño we also have have potentially important works by the likes of Ralph Ellison and Henry Roth, intriguing new books from Robert Walser and Ernst Weiss, a guaranteed bestseller from Stieg Larsson, and, looming in 2011, the final, unfinished novel of David Foster Wallace. Perhaps, amid all this, it is a relief to hear that we have many exciting books on their way from those still with us, including Elizabeth Kostova, Joshua Ferris, David Mitchell, Jennifer Egan, Don DeLillo, Ian McEwan, Yann Martel, and many others.

Appeals court overturns $20 million award in secret Michael Jackson video

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A state appellate court overturned a $20-million award today in a case involving a secret videotape of Michael Jackson and his attorneys that was shot on a 2003 charter jet flight.

The 2nd District Court of Appeal concluded that the award against XtraJet and its owner, Jeffrey Borer, was excessive. To view the ruling, click here.

Jackson rode the celebrity charter from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara to surrender to face child molestation charges. During the flight, the singer was captured on tape talking with attorney Mark Geragos. Jackson was later acquitted of the molestation charges.

Brooke Shields hoped for Michael Jackson's resurrection

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hollywood actress Brooke Shields says she really hoped that late pop legend Michael Jackson would jump out of his coffin while she spoke during his memorial service.

The actress fought hard to contain her grief when she gave an emotional speech at the public event held at the Los Angeles Staples Center to commemorate the King of Pop's life following his death from acute propofol intoxication last June and hoped he'd come out alive of the box.

"Did you see me shaking? Well, they didn't tell us that the coffin was going to be there. I thought - because there was a fantasy moment in my head - that he was going to jump out and start the concert," she said.

Shields, 44, who befriended Jackson when she was 13 also revealed that she hadn't been in touch with the "Thriller" hitmaker for a long time before his death, but often wanted to call him and offer her help.

"I had not only not spoken to him, I hadn't seen him in years," she said.

Asked if she had wanted to call him to offer her help, she said: "I did that, you know, 20 years ago. I mean the rhetoric didn't change, you know, I did that way back when, but anyway, I did my best."

The star was asked by Jackson's mother Katherine to give a speech at the service, but she ignored the words she was asked to deliver in favour of giving a more personal account of their friendship during her seven-minute address.


"They had written me out something. But I wrote my own thing and just had to do my own thing. I felt honoured to be a part of it," she said.

Arrest Warrants Issued for Katt Williams

Two arrest warrants have been issued for comedian Kat Williams after he allegedly punched someone in the face at an Atlanta hotel back in November -- and the whole thing was allegedly caught on tape ... audio tape.

blank

Arrest warrants for battery and false imprisonment were issued last month for Katt in Fulton County, GA, stemming from an alleged incident at the Four Seasons Hotel the night of November 12.

According to the police report, Merion Powers claims Katt invited him to the hotel to discuss a debt -- when Powers sensed trouble was brewing he pressed the record button on his cell phone.

According to the report, "Mr. Williams was on audio recording stating that he did physically strike Mr. Power's once in the nose" and that Powers' nose "did show signs of swelling." Katt was never arrested -- but warrants were issued on December 28.

Now ... a source connected with Katt claims it went down like this: Powers was attempting to extort the comedian over a musical recording made by Williams, and when Williams told Powers to pound sand, Powers' pal called the hotel security, security called the cops, but the cops didn't believe Powers and left without arresting Katt.

Heidi Klum: I don't flirt with anyone but Seal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She's one of the world's most familiar faces, she hosts the hit show Project Runway and she's the doting mom of four – but above all else, Heidi Klum is a woman in love.

Speaking about her husband Seal to InStyle for its February issue (on newsstands Jan. 15), the cover girl expresses her uncompromising devotion to the singer – from her decision to legally take Seal's last name, Samuel, to her resolve not to bat her eyes at other men.

"I don't flirt," she says. "It's disrespectful to your husband. I would never do that. I'm very devoted, and he's the same."

To confirm their commitment, Klum, 36, and Seal, 46, hold an annual wedding ceremony and renew their vows. "We're still for a minute and stare into each other's eyes," she says.

She and her kids all have Seal's surname – though she continues to use Klum professionally – so "my husband, the children, and me, we're now all one."

With children who are 5, 4 and 3 years old, and another who is 4 months old, Klum also expresses her joy with motherhood, describing giving birth as "blissful."

"Everything is about love when you're pregnant,” she says. "The baby's being loved by you; the baby's being loved by your husband, by the grandparents, by your children. And you're being loved by everyone."

Jon Gosselin Gets Boxing Deal


PHILADELPHIA - Former reality TV star Jon Gosselin will likely sign a contract this Friday in Philadelphia to step into the boxing ring, MyFoxPhilly.com has learned.

 

Sources tell MyFoxPhilly that Gosselin, 32, will fight former friend Michael Lohan in Philadelphia sometime in May, if negotiations are finalized.

Lohan had challenged Gossilin to a $120,000 fight last  week on Fox 29's "Good Day Philadelphia" show.

For those of you keeping track at home, Lohan is best friends with former tabloid reporter Kate Major, who testified against Jon Gosselin in court during TLC’s lawsuit against Gosselin.

Local celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman will reportedly be involved in the event. Feldman had used Gosselin’s former girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, as a referee at a boxing match.

Glassman also testified against Gosselin in the TLC case.

Currently, TLC won an injunction against Gosselin that bars him from making paid appearances, without its permission, while he is under contract to TLC.

In that December court hearing, TLC disclosed its contract with Gosselin ends in May.

Gosselin, 32, can’t make any appearances without TLC’s approval until May, but he also has a $1.5 million suit pending against TLC.

A trial will be held in April to determine if Gosselin has to pay TLC for money he earned outside of his contract with TLC.

Jon and Kate Gosselin signed a one-year contract this spring with TLC that gave the foremr couple $22,000 an episode for “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” In return, TLC had exclusive control over any public appearances by the couple, and control over any outside compensation it deemed competitive in nature.

Gosselin has filed a counter lawsuit against the TLC network, claiming television producers violated Pennsylvania's child labor laws.

The couple was divorced in December 2009 and their TV show was canceled in November 2009.

Did someone get told?



Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato has responded exclusively to Noisecreep about an unfounded steroid accusation levied at his doorstep by MTV.com. A post claimed "the diminutive wailer for New Jersey spazzers Dillinger Escape Plan is ripped enough for a man five-times his size, and though he's denied using steroids (he chalks his physique up to "eat[ing] a lot of protein and work[ing] out a lot"), we're still not entirely convinced. Then again, positively destroying the stage on a nightly basis has to have some benefits, right?" To say "not entirely convinced" indicates that the writer still questions whether or not Puciato is juiced up. In the wake of Mark McGwire admitting his steroid usage -- as if the whole world wasn't already aware of that -- MTV.com's statement has certainly sparked Puciato's ire. And no, we don't think his response is a symptom of 'roid rage. We believe that he's just physically fit and well within his rights to be totally pissed off.

"In a bizarre MTV news story today about Mark McGwire and steroids, some writer guy who writes 'news' that nobody probably reads anyway decided to basically accuse me and some other musicians of steroid use," Puciato said. "Irresponsible? Yes. Understandable? Of course, because he obviously doesn't know what it feels like to have actual willpower and drive. I don't know what it feels like to be a total p---- who manifests his own inadequacies by accusing other people of cheating in order to achieve something of notice."

Puciato continued, "Unfortunately for him, they don't have 'writer potions' that he can take to better himself at his chosen hobby. While this isn't the first time that someone has presumed that I take steroids, it is the first time that I can think of that it's been publicly presumed. Although I usually take it as a compliment, it borders on slander when done in this way, and in actuality, it's more of a shame that we live in a time in which people assume that you need to cheat somehow in order to actually achieve anything worthwhile.

"Your article says more about you, James, than it says about me. Regardless, thanks for the publicity softball pitch, and you can thank me in return. Keep practicing the whole 'writing' thing, cause it apparently doesn't come that naturally to you. And meanwhile I'll go pop all the huge zits that I have on my back, beat the s--- out of my girlfriend for having a guy friend, start a fight at a sports bar, drunk-bang a bunch of 19-year-old sorority chicks and crush 20 Wendy's double stacks."

Will new shows make NBC worth seeing?



(CNN) -- Jay Leno couldn't salvage NBC's prime-time ratings. Now the network is making bets on high-profile producers to perform triage next season.

Pilots on deck include the law drama "Kindreds" from "The Practice's" David E. Kelley, which will follow an "ex-patent lawyer and a group of his misfit associates," plus a "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"-esque drama called "Undercovers" from "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams about a married couple getting back into the CIA game, according to NBC Universal.

The network has also called on the talents of star producer Jerry Bruckheimer for a Southwestern cops 'n' robbers procedural drama called "Chase," and "House" creator David Shore is committed to bringing back "The Rockford Files."

If these options appear enticing, they're also expensive -- particularly compared with five nights a week of Jay Leno's talk show.

But choosing to put Leno on five nights a week also helped NBC to stay at the bottom of the prime time barrel while angering its affiliates. It's a mistake the network obviously doesn't want to make twice.

"The truth we have to remember is that it's not like we ripped off a bunch of high-performing 10 o'clock dramas to put 'Jay Leno' on," NBC Universal's president of prime time entertainment, Angela Bromstad, said Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California.

Ghostbusters 3 news

 


A few weeks ago, "Ghostbusters" writer and star Harold Ramis revealed that the long-awaited third movie in the series is planned for a 2011 release. This news broke only a short time after "Avatar" star Sigourney Weaver speculated that Bill Murray's character Pete Venkman might appear in the movie as a slimer ghost, and that Oscar, her character's son from the second movie, would be a full-fledged Ghostbuster.

Ivan Reitman, director and producer of the first two movies, stopped to chat with MTV's Josh Horowitz last night on the National Board of Review red carpet in New York City. He shied away from addressing Weaver's spoiler-y speculation, but he did have some things to say about the general state of development for "Ghostbusters III."

Wyclef Jean Calls for Haitian Earthquake Aid

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In response to the massive earthquake that stuck Haiti on Tuesday, Wyclef Jean has called upon the international community to give immediate assistance to the island nation.

"The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone," said Jean, 40. "We must act now." He noted that people can help by donating to his Yele Haiti Foundation, either by texting "Yele" to 501501, which will automatically donate $5, or by going to the foundation's Web site.

The musician, who was born in Haiti and has been active in supporting programs there, noted that President Obama is "ready to assist" the Haitian people," but "the international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible."

The 7.0 magnitude quake, along with severe aftershocks, centered 10 miles from Port-au-Prince and destroyed much of the capital, leveling thousands of structures including hospitals, homes, offices buildings and shanties. Countless people are trapped in the rubble.

"I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse," said Jean.

The foundation's website is currently down, maybe due to high traffic, so I would recommend texting.

Vatican calls 'Avatar' bland

The Vatican has described the science fiction film 'Avatar', which has taken $1 billion (£600m) at the box office, as bland, cliched and overly-sentimental.



Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The futuristic 3-D adventure, directed by James Cameron, has received scathing reviews from Vatican Radio as well as the Holy See's official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano.

The epic movie, which will be released in Italy this week, has received generally favourable reviews in the United States and Britain, amazing critics and cinemagoers with its technical mastery and blend of real-life actors and animation.

It takes place in 2154 on the planet Pandora, light years away from Earth, where humans have established an environmentally-destructive mining colony.

But the record budget had failed to impress the Catholic Church hierarchy in Rome.

"It has a great deal of enchanting, stunning technology, but few genuine or human emotions," wrote L'Osservatore Romano.

"Its significance is in its visual impact rather than in the story, and in its messages, despite the fact that they are hardly new.

"Cameron, concentrating on the creation of the fantasy world of Pandora, chooses a bland approach. He tells the story without any profound exploration."

Early Ratings: American Idol Premiere Steady Versus Last Year

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last night’s American Idol premiered to 29.8 million average viewers and an 11.7 adults 18-49 rating according to preliminary Nielsen numbers.

That’s pretty much identical, though down just a touch from last year’s preliminary numbers for American Idol’s season premiere on January 13, 2009 which averaged 30.1 million and an 11.8 rating with adults 18-49.

This halts a string of consecutive annual double digit percentage losses from Idol’s peak in 2007. It could be curiosity over what the show would be like without Paul and with Ellen, knowledge that it’s Simon’s last season, both or neither…

NCIS remained strong with nearly 21 million viewers opposite American Idol.

last night was the first time in 3 years i've seen AI live and i want to knife this kara chick in the face. wtf? shut up.

and the premiere was awful, no one was funny, no one was that good of a singer.

TV Ratings Tuesday



American Idol premiered with ratings almost dead even with last season’s debut, and of course dominated Tuesday night. NCIS' ratings (and CBS as a whole) held up surprisingly well, while NBC’s Biggest Loser and the entire ABC line up ratings suffered. Conan’s Tonight Show crushed Letterman’s Late Show.

The premiere of American Idol posted a 11.7 rating among Adults 18-49 and drew 29.8 million Total Viewers, right in line with last year’s premiere performance. It was as up +8% versus last year’s Tuesday premiere among Adults 18-34. Not surprisingly, it was the highest rated night of entertainment programming this season, and the highest rated American Idol telecast since last year’s Wednesday premiere on Jan 14.

Against the Idol premiere, CBS’ NCIS held up like a rock, down less than 2% from last week to a 4.3 rating. NCIS:LA took a bigger ratings hit, down 19% from last week to a 3.0 rating. The Good Wife was dead even with last week’s 3.0 rating.

NBC’s Biggest Loser was down 30% from its premiere rating last week to a 3.2 rating, but that was just 3% below its rating for the Idol premiere night last season. The Jay Leno Show didn’t get much, if any, controversy boost, down 14% to a 1.9 rating from last week. Still, that crushed a new episode of the forgotten.

Lost cannot arrive soon enough for ABC on Tuesday, as their night overall was crunched under the Idol steamroller, down 23% overall to just a 1.0 rating, well behind Univision.

Controversy provided a big boost for “Team Conan” as Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show’s 1.7 rating in 18-49 in Nielsen’s 25 local markets with People Meters crushed CBS’s Late Show 0.9 rating. At 12:35 a.m., Jimmy Fallon 0.7 rating in 18-49 in local people meters topped CBS’s Late Late Show 0.5 rating.

Your First Look at the Real World: Back to New Orleans Mansion!



So as you may or may not already know, MTV's The Real World will be heading back to New Orleans for its forthcoming 24th season. The newest season is set to begin production with its cast of already-chosen 8 strangers by the end of this month, January, 2010. And thanks to a few of the unbelievable fans at Vevmo.com (a great RW forum), we now know what the mansion in which these 8 strangers will be residing in looks like. And while it might not appear to be as fabulous as the remodeled Civil War-era mansion from the original and amazing and classic Real World: New Orleans -- The Belfort -- it is a pretty nice abode! ;)

From Lainey Gossip:

It can be hard to breathe when you’re as young and as famous as he is. He copes in public situations not unlike many of his counterparts in the industry – as alarming as this sounds, a bump here and there is pedestrian in Hollywood. He’s been known however to lock himself in the bathroom and blow until he can face the world. But a word of advice to our fresh star – people know, and they are watching, and they are offering money to those around you, some friendly, some unfriendly, to catch you in a compromising position. So be careful who you trust. Fortunately, for your sake, so far they’ve refused to sell you out. But everyone has a price. People with children and mortgages have a price. And eventually someone will cave. And if you’re still hiding out in the toilet and rubbing your nose in it, suffice to say that photo can set them up for life. Careful now.

Hef splits with useless twins

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Looks like he’ll have to cope with having only one girlfriend, as the Shannon twins are moving out of Hugh Hefner’s mansion.

On Tuesday, Hef took to his Twitter account to make the announcement, stating, “The Shannon Twins are growing up. They’re moving to the Playmate House with my blessing so they will be free to do other things.”

The 83-year-old Playboy boss recently told E! Online that his relationship with number one girlfriend, Crystal Harris, has been getting “more serious” and the twins are more interested in doing promo work as Playmates.

Hefner added that he was the one who suggested the move. “When they thought about it, they thought it was a good idea. They will now be friends, but they won’t be defined as the girlfriends.”

Joey Tribbiani: "How YOU doin'?"

Can that really be Joey? Matt Le Blanc's grey hair and portly belly betray signs of rapid ageing
By Georgina Littlejohn
Last updated at 4:39 PM on 13th January 2010

He will forever be known as the twentysomething Italian American actor desperate to hit the big time.

But while the re-runs of Friends will forever immortalise him as the youthful Joey Tribbiani, time has not been so kind to actor Matt Le Blanc.

He was snapped leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles last night with greying hair and looking overweight.

A grey-haired Matt LeBlanc - aka Joey from Friends - cuts a portly figure as he leaves a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles last night.

Dressed down in a red lumberjack shirt, baggy jeans and trainers, he looked a little awkward when he faced the cameras as he left the sushi restaurant last night.

LeBlanc was only 27 when he started on Friends, which first aired in 1994, and he went on to play Joey Tribbiani for the next ten years.

Oscars: What's the worst case of category fraud?



There are accusations of category fraud at the Oscars every year -- sometimes justified. Consider last year when Kate Winslet had two rival lead roles in "Revolutionary Road" and "The Reader." Dubiously, she defined her "Reader" role as supporting so she wouldn't compete against herself and the strategy paid off with victories at the Golden Globes (where category placement is decided by an eligibility committee that usually buckles to studio demands) and Screen Actors Guild awards (where stars can place themselves wherever they wish).

It's not that unusual, since people have been using marriage for many things throughout history. We just think it's sad there are actual transactions involved here- the monetary kind, trust us, not the sexual kind. One of the partners is paying the other a hefty stipend as an incentive to stay hitched. The receiving partner needs the money because of a drug habit and gambling issues and the other is inclined to give it to fight off rumors of sexuality/bad past/unattractiveness. Both in the relationship are celebrities, both have been up against speculation, and both are all about the PR to keep the ball rolling on their different needs being fulfilled by the marriage. Not Katie and Tom."

His people are searching frantically for her so they can get the marriage annulled before his fiance' finds out about it and before he gets married to her."

Hollywood's Top-Earning Couples



The indisputable king and queen of the hip-hop prom are Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles. The couple, who quietly married in 2008, not only produce and sing some of the biggest hits on the charts (including "Single Ladies" and "Empire State of Mind") but they oversee clothing lines, perform around the world and endorse products from companies like American Express and Budweiser.

All that hard work has paid off. Between June 2008 and June 2009 the couple earned a combined $122 million putting them squarely at the top of our annual Top-Earning Couples list.

Jay-Z and Beyonce both contribute significantly to their joint earnings. Last year Beyonce out-earned Jay-Z, bringing in $87 million to his $35 million. (The couple also topped last year’s list with $162 million. About half of that came from each star.)

Jessica Simpson & Billy Corgan: Still Hanging Out

Despite reports that Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan have called it quits, they’re still together -- in the recording studio
at least. And in new photos of the duo, the look of love is still in Jessica’s eyes.

Jessica accompanied the Smashing Pumpkins singer to the studio earlier this week – he’s working on his band’s eight studio album, Teargarden By Kaleidyscope – and several photos of them together have made it to Twitter.

In a photo posted by Billy’s producer and record label partner Kerry Brown, Jessica -- dressed casually in jeans and a hoodie -- looks up at Billy as he’s balancing a guitar overhead.

In another, posted by the photographer, Jessica has her eyes locked on the musician as he plays, looking at him with a look of admiration and displaying a smile.

According to reports, Jessica and Billy – who started spending time together in December -- ended their relationship due largely to religious differences. Billy, who founded the interfaith Web site Everthingfromheretothere.com, thought the former pastor’s daughter seemed uninterested in spiritually.

Now Jessica has retweeted one of the studio photos of her with Billy and added the message: "I am blessed."

Another photo of Jessica featured the caption: "Fun to be lost in laughter.”

Are they or aren’t they? It seems they’re still figuring it out – slowly.

Sam Worthington Pleased to Share Screen With Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes


Australian actor Sam Worthington was stunned to find out he'd be appearing alongside Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes in a movie - because he only agreed to take on the role as a favor.

The "Avatar" actor signed up to star in Massy Tadjedin's upcoming film "Last Night", and he felt like he'd hit the jackpot when she mentioned he would be sharing the screen with two Hollywood beauties.

And his friends were so keen to meet the female stars, they rushed to visit Worthington in New York while he filmed the movie. He says, "I did the film as a favor to the director and then she said, 'I have Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes too.' So I thought, 'Let's go to the lottery!' Suddenly all my mates, who weren't that bothered before, wanted to come out to New York and hang out with Keira and Eva. Strange that."

The story follows a married couple,(Worthington and Knightley) apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he's attracted (Mendes). While he's resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.(Canet)

Jay Reatard Dies

Jay Reatard Dead At 29



Jay Reatard, born Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr. of Memphis, died early this morning. The cause of death isn't known as of 4:25 p.m. today, though his former label, Goner Records, is reporting that he died in his sleep.

Reatard has been making music for a long time; in fact, he sent his first tape to Goner when he was just 15. He recently signed to Matador Records, which released Watch Me Fall this summer.

The label released a statement this afternoon, which reads, "We are devastated by the death of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., a.k.a. Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we've ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist. We're honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly."

There has been lots of chatter lately about how “The Internet” has voted for Conan O’Brien. Sadly for Conan, Internet chatter doesn’t pay the bills at the TV networks, and neither can it threaten to scuttle the NBCU/Comcast deal.

In the battle of Jay vs. Conan, the end of “Conan at 11:35″ might have been prevented had viewers actually watched his show. Had Conan been pulling better ratings at 11:35, NBC may very well have given Jay the heave ho at this point, instead of effectively giving it to Conan.

Smallville Season 10 A Done Deal?


Not quite, but CW president Dawn Ostroff tells me she is feeling very optimistic about the show’s renewal odds.

“I’m really pleased with the show,” she says. “Creatively, I think they’ve done a great job. And the ratings are [strong] on Friday night. I have to commend [the producers]… It’s not easy in season 9 to keep a show fresh. And you know what I think? The fans have really liked the show this season.

“I don’t know which way we’ll go,” she continues, “but if you would’ve asked me [earlier whether it would end this season] I would’ve said, ‘Oh, probably.’ But I can’t say that now.”

In the meantime, Ostroff says Smallville producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders “haven’t even pitched us the last episodes yet, so we haven’t even gotten to how we’re going to deal with the last episode and whether it’s a season finale or series finale. But right now, I think  it’s just a season finale.”

Katy Perry Is the New (Acne-Free!) Face of Proactiv

Proactiv Solution, the world’s best-selling pimple-fighting beauty regimen, probably also boasts the longest and most renowned list of celebrity spokespeople—especially with the just-announced additions of Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Jenna Fischer to their lineup. WWD reports that the trio of stars will join Proactiv’s famous pitchpeople — which already include Mandy Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Julianne Hough — by touting the acne remedy with televised one-minute, two-minute, and 30-second commercials launching later this month. They’ll be compensated handsomely in return, as company exec Ben Van de Bunt confirms, “We are paying people consistently with what we have done in the past, which is millions of dollars.” Perry, Lavigne, and Fischer’s new gig will last at least a year, and expect to see the ads airing worldwide, as the line is carried in more than 58 countries.

Rihanna Dishes on Her Glam Team and “Really Personal” Album

How do you style a fashion icon for a cover shoot? In labels like Gucci, Dior and Van Cleef & Arpels if you’re putting together Rihanna’s edgy spread for the February issue of W.

The singer tells the magazine that she is embracing her new status as a role model following her assault by then-boyfriend Chris Brown: “I feel like this happened to me so I could be a voice for young girls who are going through what I went through and don’t know how to talk about it.”

Coincidentally or not, her look has gotten tougher over the past year—with more spikes, studs and cut-outs than ever—as has her music. Rihanna tells W, “This was a different type of record for me. It was really personal; it was for me in the most authentic way. It’s like a movie in that when I was making the album, every day I was in a different mood. Sometimes I was pissed off, sometimes I was miserable, and every song brings out a different story,” she says, before admitting, “It’s still hard to listen to certain songs.”

But one trapping of fame always makes her smile, admitting the best part of her day is “when I’m with my glam team getting my hair and makeup done — we talk so much s—!”

Playboy Source: “Hef’s Twins Just Care About Themselves”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
To those familiar with life inside the Playboy Mansion, it doesn’t come as a big surprise today when it was announced that Hugh Hefner’s now-ex-girlfriends, twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon, had decided to move out of the Hef’s legendary playpen.

“You have to consider that these girls are only 20 years old,” a source tells OK!. “The twins were there for the ride. They just care about themselves.”

Hefner said he initially suggested the move, which is expected to be within the next couple of weeks, and that Kristina and Karissa will now be “friends” as opposed to having the official title of “girlfriends.”

One of the reasons — and possibly a clear indicator — for the twins’ departure from the famous Holmby Hills home was their relationship to the 83-year-old nudie magazine mogul.

According to the source, “it was not a secret the twins were sleeping around” while living under Hef’s roof.

“From what I heard, the twins were not sleeping with Hef,”
the source continues. “And Hef didn’t really seem to care. He would let them get away with murder. They did whatever they wanted.”

This leaves Hef alone with his main girlfriend, 23-year-old Crystal Harris, and if the E! reality show The Girls Next Door gets picked up for a seventh season, the twins will still be a part of the series.

Snooki’s Appearance Price Rises with Each Punch

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Her hair isn’t the only thing that’s going up! Apparently Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s appearance fees reached new heights after she was punched in the face in a bar brawl. According to a leaked email from NYU Law’s student listserv, Snooki’s appearance fee started at a rate of $2,000 and quickly rose as students tried to book the Jersey Show star, Gawker reports.

Before Snookie was punched in the face on camera she was the cheapest Jersey Shore member making $2,000 an appearance. But after, she became the most expensive — $10,000 an appearance!

Apparently, the other cast members need a better tan to charge higher fees for party appearances.

Since December, The Situation and Pauly D have reportedly been making $7,500. An appearance for J-Woww cost about $5,000 in December and Vinny and Ronnie were equal at $3,500, but in January Ronnie’s fee dropped $500. A joint appearance with Sweetheart only made a combined profit of $3,000.

Hopefully, the other cast members don’t start fights to get higher fees!

“On To The Next One” Director Sets The Record Straight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
There’s been a lot of talk about Jay’s video containing Freemason imagery such as the horned animal head, an eagle and skull. What are your thoughts about such talk and why do you think music fans are so quick to believe a conspiracy narrative?
I’m aware of the stir the video has caused and what people are saying. I think when you’re dealing in abstract imagery people are going to want to draw lines between things and make sense of it. However, I’ve always felt that the viewing public was, in general, extremely visually literate. They don’t always want or need things to be spelt out for them. One of the great things about music videos are they can be enjoyed purely visually—it doesn’t need to mean anything or make any sense. Conspiracy theory is another thing entirely, and seems to me to be about projecting pre-existing beliefs and desperately looking for things that confirm them. There is imagery in this video that is drawn from all over the place. None of it is owned by any one culture or belief system. You can connect anything if you try hard enough, and make it mean anything you want it to.

So what was the overall direction Jay was looking for?
He gave me a very loose brief, and made it clear that we should be progressive with the video. All the imagery was thought up by me and was a response to the track itself. For those interested, the idea is actually about a funeral for old imagery and ideas, hence all the gothic and oppressive stuff. I was also trying to contradict the excess of hip-hop videos by making something brutally simple and claustrophobic.

"I don’t know where it started. I don’t know where it came from. I really think it’s really silly. For the record, I of course believe in God, but I believe in one God. If people must know my religious beliefs, I believe in one God. I don’t believe in religion. I don’t believe in Christians or Muslims. I think all that separates people. I think it’s one God. I think it’s all the same God, and I don’t believe in Hell. But as far as God, of course I believe in God. Am I a part of some sec or cult? That sounds stupid to me. It’s like ignorant to even say, and umm… I guess that’ll be the last time I address that. It’s ignorant to me. I can’t even get in a golf club in Palm Springs. I’m from Marcy Projects. Just think about that? People that control the world?"

Do you believe that those sort of organizations exist?
"I think there are cliques of friends that control things. I don’t know if there is a devil worshiping sect. That’s a little Tom Hanks. I believe there are cliques of people that control the world…but that’s just natural process. I’m sure Obama has his people and everything is good but as far as how far people are taking it…

So you don’t intentionally do this to put people in a frenzy?
I’m an entertainer at the end of the day. Maybe I’ll push your buttons but you know…

Pat Robertson again responds to a tragedy in the douchiest way possible

Pat Robertson on Haiti: 'Pact to the devil'



Evangelical preacher Pat Robertson is at it again. On his Christian Broadcasting Network, he blamed the earthquake in Haiti on the country's "pact to the Devil" for wanting its freedom from French colonial rule.

Imagine if he had said this in October of last year:

"You know, Christie, something happened a long time ago in Haiti. And the people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third or whatever, and they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you get us free from the French. True story. And so, the Devil said, Ok, it's a deal. And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another -- desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It's cut down the middle. On the one side is Haiti on the other is the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. They need to have, and we need to pray for them, a great turning to God, that out of this tragedy, I'm optimistic something good may come, but right now we're helping the suffering people -- and the suffering is unimaginable.

Fantasia Barrino: 'For Real' Reality Show Is a Hit for VH1




The Jan. 11 premiere of 'American Idol' winner Fantasia Barrino's new reality show, 'Fantasia For Real,' debuted strong numbers for VH1.

According to a network spokesperson, the "docu-series" scored a 1.4 P18-49 rating and brought in 2.3 million total viewers. It was also the #2 non-sports original cable series for the day.

The timing couldn't be better, either: The season opener of 'American Idol' takes place Jan. 12, and a new J Records project – her third full length recording – is expected in March. For most of the month of Feb., the High Point, North Carolina native will star in the Oprah Winfrey-produced musical when it returns to Los Angeles.

Scott Sanders, lead producer of 'Purple' is elated that Barrino is returning to the show, for which she became a box -office draw when it played on Broadway. "She is a unique talent who, like Celie, the lead character she plays in the show, has her own set of personal struggles and challenges. But, just as Celie does in 'Purple,' I know that Fantasia will always face her challenges head on and triumph over any obstacles put in her way."

'For Real,' which is executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, and Jeremy Simmons for World of Wonder, follows Fantasia as she juggles her career, family drama and single-motherhood while devoting her energy into recording music.

Lloyd Banks Released From Jail, Detained By Immigration

my boatG-Unit member Lloyd Banks and three associates, who were jailed after allegedly assaulting and robbing a concert promoter in Canada, were released on bail Tuesday (January 12), but Banks and associate Nicklas Sloane were remanded by Canadian immigration.

According to Olaf Heinzel, a spokesperson for the Kitchener (Ontario) Police, the two were held for unspecified immigration issues; a Canadian immigration spokesperson told MTV News that details about Banks' (real name: Christopher Lloyd) and Sloan's detention were not available at press time. A review is scheduled for later this week, after which the two could be released and allowed to return to the U.S.

Shawn McGee and Tyrell Cooper, who were also jailed in connection with the incident, are expected to return to the United States later Tuesday.

All four men were arrested just after 5 a.m. on Saturday at a hotel in Kitchener. According to authorities, Banks and his associates party assaulted and robbed a local show promoter/ booking agent in his hotel room early Saturday in a dispute over pay for a concert appearance. The four were charged with criminal confinement, robbery and aggravated assault. Although police have not named the alleged victim, Banks' lawyer, Patrick Ducharme, told MTV News that he is veteran booking agent Chris Hines.

"The case probably will proceed on the basis that it will be put over for three to four weeks for me to receive what is called the 'prosecutors disclosure.' That's all the information that supposedly supports the charges," Ducharme, who expects to enter a not guilty plea on behalf of Banks in approximately month, told MTV News late Monday. "Then three to four weeks after I've had the chance to review that disclosure, I would be prepared to set the date for the trial or preliminary hearing, depending on some procedural matters. The case will proceed through the courts. If it stays in the lower courts, it takes about a year and a few months to resolve. If it goes to the higher courts, it could be as along as a year and a half to bring the matter to court."

At press time, Ducharme and the case's prosecutor had not responded to MTV News' requests for further comment.

Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3, had a fun-filled day at the playground in Chatsworth, California today with their dad Kevin Federline (January 12). The paps snapped some gorgeous pics of the adorable brothers as they played, climbed rocks and mucked about in the sand.

Kevin, a former professional dancer, has been showing off a slimmer physique these days. He reportedly shed 50 pounds as a contestant on the upcoming season of VH1's Celebrity Fit Club.

Brad and Angelina Donate $1 Million to Haiti Quake Relief

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Wednesday January 13, 2010 07:50 PM EST
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's foundation is contributing $1 million to the emergency medical operation responding to the devastating 7.0-magnitude quake in Haiti.

"It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades," says Jolie.

Adds Pitt: "We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care."

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation is donating the funds to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiéres, whose three hospitals in Port-au-Prince were severely damaged, forcing the staff to work out of open-air hospitals.

Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan in movie by "Moon" director



Moon may enjoy a second life now that it's out on DVD, but Duncan Jones doesn't have time to rest on his laurels. He has another edgy sci-fi film called Source Code to make, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, it's not going to be a man's game like so many sci-fi films, as Jones has cast Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan.

Code centers around a soldier (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) who is involved in an experimental program that's investigating terrorist incidents. He finds himself in the body of an unknown train commuter, and stuck reliving the same horrific train bombing again and again until he can find out who was behind it.

Farmiga will play the communications officer who is controlling Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space, while Monaghan is a fellow commuter who is romantically involved with the bombing victim / Gyllenhaal puppet, which will undoubtedly complicate matters beyond a simple investigation. I suspect we're in for a meaty mindbender of a film, and one that'll stick close to the themes of identity and free will that Jones explored so wonderfully in Moon. In a day and age of reboots, it's nice when an original film (and a sci-fi one at that) gets past the gate, isn't it?

Good cast, good director--looks like scifi's really changing because of Moon and District 9 and stuff, so yay. (Forgive the shameless pics; they're both just really hot.)

Marc Webb to direct the Spidey reboot?



Marc Webb, the (500) Days Of Summer director, has climbed to the top of the Sony Pictures' list to rebirth the Spider-Man franchise. While the studio has a wish list of star directors like James Cameron, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson, the emergence of Webb as director comes as a huge surprise. But Mike Fleming's sources tell him Webb met about the Spidey reboot with the pic's producers and executives looking to get the picture into production later this year for a Summer 2012 release. Why will the pic take so long? Because it's likely to be shot in 3-D, and Sony Pictures plans to make an announcement about that "at the appropriate time".

Though he has the perfect name for the job, Webb has no prior superhero experience. Then again, neither did Sam Raimi. And Chris Nolan was the director of Memento when he signed on for Batman Begins. Webb is also a newbie if Sony greenlights 3-D. But among directors, almost all would be.  
 
What has Sony execs excited is the fact that (500) Days of Summer introduced a director with a grasp of how to depict the way young people think and feel. This is critical because the Jamie Vanderbilt script covers the formative years of a high school-aged Peter Parker, and that POV is as important as the action sequences. Especially after Sony and Sam Raimi retired the original Spidey franchise because they realized the film would have been same old/same old at a huge budget. Injecting new blood with an up-and-coming director is a bold stroke. Too bad Webb’s (500) Days star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is too old to play the high school-aged wall crawler. He’d be perfect.

I love (500) Days of Summer. But I don't know if Webb could get the superhero thing right. Also JGL does not look too old to be in high school and he should be Peter Parker. Better him than RPattz.

Hit-Girl and 9 other controversial kids



One of the most bracing elements of the upcoming comic book adaptation Kick-Ass is Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), a 12-year-old superheroine who indulges in some decidedly R-rated mischief like graphic villain-garroting and “c***”-laced bon mots. A recent clip of Hit Girl in action has begun to spark controversy, but at least Lionsgate can point to a long history of cinematic children engaging in inappropriate (and often sociopathic) behavior. Here are nine other kids who blazed a bloody trail for her:

Runner Cleared To Race As A Woman Despite Tranny Accusations

Caster Semenya To Return To Competition





Despite the media frenzy about her transgender testing, Caster Semenya is free to compete in upcoming International competitions.

As previously reported, Semenya underwent gender testing by the IAAF to determine if she was truly born a woman after unexpectedly winning an 800-meter competition.

Although the results were thought complete and being kept quiet, the IAAF maintains that the testing is still “ongoing.”

Despite that, the sprinter form Johannesburg is free to run again.

She was also allowed to keep her 800-meter gold medal from the IAAF World Championships where she dusted her competition at a time of 1 minute 55 seconds.

Semenya will race in local competitions before making her International return.

Joe Mazzello is blowing up

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
If Joe Mazzello looks familiar, he should—just subtract 16 years and add a velociraptor. After starring in Jurassic Park, Mazzello, like a lot of other child stars, took some time off. Unlike most, though, he has reemerged.

He's now working with that Spielberg guy again, starring in HBO's much-anticipated 10-part World War II epic The Pacific as U.S. marine Eugene Sledge, whose 1981 memoir provided plenty of source material. For additional research, Mazzello completed a grueling 10-day boot camp in the Australian bush. "Everything kills you there—every plant, every animal. Even you yourself become toxic," he deadpans. "If you touch somebody, you'll kill them."

Next fall Mazzello appears in David Fincher's The Social Network, playing Facebook founder Dustin Moskovitz. Some advice for costar Justin Timberlake: Don't stand too close.

For all the owls, he was in The Cure with Brad Renfro, Jurassic Park, Simon Birch, and Radio Flyer with Elijah Wood.

It's a Teen Mom post Y'all

A clip from the Teen Mom Aftershow. Watch Suchin Pak act like a groupie while she moderates fellow teen moms as they commiserate on their poor life choices. Someone needs to help poor Catelynn with her hair. Is there a bad hair outreach network or something?



Recap of Last Night's episode

Farrah finally put in some quality time with Sophia. She went grocery shopping with Sophia, went to the library with Sophia and even made gross-looking pizza with pears on it for her culinary class. She continued to radiate an orange glow and rock bad mall hair while doing all of the above.

Amber continued her pity-party and remained fat while doing so. She got pissy with Gary's mom who had the nerve to get a job which meant she couldn't watch Leah while Amber goes to her GED class. Amber whined some more about having to put Leah in daycare. Meanwhile Gary has been effectively kicked out of his own apartment while still footing the bill for rent and all Amber's expenses.

Maci continues to deal with deadbeat Ryan who turns down a job offer from a family friend and remains unemployed. She seeks the advise of a relationship counselor who inexplicably tells Maci she need to change herself to make Ryan better. WTF?

Catelynn and Tyler continue to deal with shitty parents. Tyler's dad Butch--who looks like a busted, meth-face version of Robert DeNiro-- narrowly avoids prison time again. Butch does manage to spend some quality time with Tyler before riding off into the sunset, mullet blowing in the wind.

Little Leah stood for the first time. Hopefully she'll learn to run so she can get the hell away from Amber.

Kim Kardashian: Kourtney Is Not Engaged

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kim Kardashian shot down engagement rumors about her older sister Kourtney and baby-daddy Scott Disick Monday.

"They are not engaged to be married," Kim, 29, said during Dallas-based radio show Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. "I don't think Kourtney really is thinking about that right now. She's not really focused on getting married. I don't think she wants that responsibility right now. She's just having a good time loving being a mom. And I think she's just going to stick with that for right now."

For her own part, Kim says she's being patient about getting a ring on her finger from Reggie Bush.

"I would actually like him to have [one]," she says of the New Orleans Saints star. "I would like for them to get to the Super Bowl and win it. Get him a ring first, before ..."

"He gets a ring, and then you get a ring," suggests Kraddick's co-host, Big Al.

"That's the deal," Kardashian says. "That's the deal."

Rest assured, Kardashian isn't going to sprint away from Bush anytime soon – because, well, he's just too hot not to handle.

"I was telling him that last night," says Kim. "I go, 'If we ever broke up ... the next guy is going to have a really hard time, because your body is so amazing!' I would always compare and I would always, just, you know, make the other person, in my mind, feel so bad!"

After a lengthy five year engagement, NBA star Carmelo Anthony and his fiancée, LaLa Vazquez will finally tie the knot this summer in front of their friends and family, Vazquez announced Wednesday on the Wendy Williams Show.

And that's not all! The former MTV Veejay, who is currently in New York to check out wedding venues and designers, will have a little bit of glitzy help in planning her upcoming nuptials. Vazquez and her Denver Nugget All-Star fiancé have hired celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss to plan their big day. Weiss has planned weddings for a bevy of A-listers, including Heidi Klum, Shaquille O'Neal and Gwen Stefani. "I like her work so I hired her to come on board for my wedding," Vazquez told Williams.

Although she hasn't yet picked her bridal party, Vazquez assures her celebrity pals, like Kim Kardashian and Solange Knowles, "will be in it in some capacity." As for the guest list? Expect a grand affair. "Maybe 250-300 people ... Everybody's been waiting for it so long, we might as well invite everybody to come hang out," she laughed.

The couple, who have a three year old son together, will exchange vows in New York.

Dine on Scarlett Johansson In New York



Our good friends at "In New York" have released their annual Dining Issue, and the theme of this year's edition is "Sex Sells!"

The brand spankin' (don't we wish) new issue features Scarlett Johansson breaking out the sexy for a cover photo that has as much to to with dining as the annual SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION has to do with professional sports' statistics.

And, as is the case with the Hotties-of-SI issue, this will surely be the magazine's best selling edition of the year.

Cruise Line Teams Up With Kid Conglomerate Nickelodeon

Big news for families: Norwegian Cruise Line announced at a reveal event onboard Norwegian Gem in New York today that it is teaming up with kid conglomerate Nickelodeon for programming onboard select ships.

Beginning in April on Norwegian Jewel and then this summer on the brand-new Norwegian Epic, new experiences will debut onboard, including:

• Character meet-and-greets and story hours
• Interactive game shows, like SlimeTime LIVE! (watch out for the network's signature green slime)
• Special Nick Live! poolside performances
• Activities such as arts and crafts and Nick-themed dance parties

An important note: The kids' centers themselves will not be impacted; the multi-year agreement is for a program -- dubbed Nickelodeon at Sea -- that's all about entertainment. Also, the only upcharge is for a character breakfast.

Special Nickelodeon theme cruises will also be offered annually, which will feature more of everything -- more live game shows, more opportunities to chill with Nick characters -- as well as show premieres and special appearances by Nick network stars.

Interestingly, Nickelodeon has offered similar theme cruises in the past -- on rival line Royal Caribbean. However, this is the first time Nickelodeon has teamed up with a cruise line to bring its unique entertainment onboard in a major way and on a regular basis.

Katharine Mcphee Shape Magazine



Katharine McPhee shows off her bikini bod on Shape magazine’s February 2010 cover!

The 25-year-old American Idol alum, who’s been open about her struggle with overcoming bulimia, told Shape she’s become more forgiving of her body. Check it:

On refusing to obsess over weight: “The more I focused on my weight, the worse my bulimia got. Now I’m more easygoing. I stopped fighting myself and became more forgiving of my body. Ironically, the weight came off naturally through exercise but no dieting.”

On living a healthy life: “At my last physical, the nurse took my vitals and said, ‘Wow, you must be taking care of yourself! Your blood pressure is perfect. You’re very healthy.’ Hearing her say that made me feel better than seeing an ‘ideal’ number on the scale.”
I think I would like her hair more if it was long like it used to be.

The American Version Of "Being Human" Will Have A Touch Of "Supernatural"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While the BBC preps the second season of its monster drama Being Human, the Syfy channel hires a Supernatural scribe to write their American remake. Does this mean Syfy's Being Human might actually be as clever as the original?

Being Human, a drama about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living in a flat in Bristol is a perfect combination of witty writing, interesting drama and world-building - and most importantly, a dynamite cast with excellent chemistry.

When we heard Syfy was making their own Being Human copy at series, we weren't exactly pleased. But recent news that Supernatural writer Jeremy Carver and Anna Frickle (from the under appreciated Privileged series) were taking on Syfy's version fills us with hope. Supernatural's timely and cutting humor, mixed with dark drama, is exactly the kind of balance Being Human strikes every week.

Pardon me?


Chris Kilmore, the current DJ of the band Incubus, has filed a temporary restraining order against the band's former DJ Gavin Koppel on behalf of himself and his girlfriend Alison Abiega. He had filed a restraining order against Koppel in 2003 as well.

Read the Documents

Allegedly in the summer of 2009, Koppel visited the couple at their home in the middle of the night. On December 29, Koppel approached the couple as they exited a nearby store and "started in on a tirade about scratch records" and confronted Kilmore about the 2003 restraining order.

He then said that Kilmore would "get killed"; if he didn't lift the order and made more threatening comments like telling Kilmore to watch his house before trying to engage him in a fist fight. The altercation ended after the store’s owner came out, prompting Koppel to walk away.

Kilmore also believes Koppel had a gun in his jacket pockets during the heated confrontation and that the band’s former DJ is following him.

"Mr. Koppel has harassed me and other members of Incubus for the last 11 years," the papers also stated. Koppel, who left the band in February 1998, continues to receive royalties from the records he was part of.

A hearing is set for January 27.

According to various sources, staff members at Vogue have been told that in order to cut costs, they should begin taking the subway rather than their usual plush Town Cars. And this cut back isn't just for 'regular' employees. The New York Post says that "even associate publisher Lottie Oakley had to ride underground last week back to Vogue's Times Square offices." Is Anna far behind her?

LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE



Listen, I’m tired of writing about this late-night stuff, and you’re tired of reading about it. But bear with me, this one’s actually not about Conan for once. It’s about Jay Leno and his scheisty ass going into damage control now that Conan has rejected NBC’s plan to bump “The Tonight Show” to midnight. Check out this twisted version of reality from Popeater:

Sources close to former ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno tell me he is furious with the way NBC has treated him and Conan O’Brien and is considering walking away from the entire mess with his head held high. “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy,” a TV insider tells me.

“Plus, what happens when Jay does return to the 11:35 slot if his audience doesn’t immediately follow? How can he possibly trust the same network that canceled Conan after only seven months?”


Yes, poor Jay Leno. How can he possibly trust NBC after he helped convince them to push Conan out? Really, when you think about it, Conan’s the real bad guy here for having a spine. What a jerk.

Meagan Good in Krave magazine

“I would really like to do Aaliyah’s life story. I was and am a huge fan of hers and think in a way she was our princess Diana. She was very classy, beautiful and carried herself wish such respect for a young age. It would be a great story for young girls and a great example of believing in and respecting yourself. Another woman’s character I would like to play is Whitney Houston. I have so much respect for, for what she accomplished, what’s she’s been through and what she’s come out of. Creatively I think it would be amazing to go emotionally where she’s been and bring it to life.”

Gawker declares Jeff Zucker a failure and an idiot. Internet remains unsurprised.



Many years ago, NBC decided that the guy who came up with the idea of doing concerts on The Today Show would make a great network head. Now they are in last place. Except in jokes, where they are first. Jeff Zucker is the chairman of NBC Universal. And no one is sure why. Collapse )



I know we're swamped with Tonight Show stories this week but I thought this was a great editorial. It's fairly long but kind of hilarious.

Ashley Greene goes Black and White for I

Ashley Greene is all about sexing things up these days — the Twilight star recently stripped down to nothing but body paint for a SoBe Lifewater campaign, and she's decked out in black leather and a see-through bodysuit for the February issue of Interview that hits newsstands next Tuesday. One of the photos is perhaps NSFW, but there's more Ashley hotness with a behind-the-scenes video on the magazine's website. Ashley responded to questions asked by her costar in the series Michael Sheen about scoring her vampire role, leaving Florida for LA, and her upcoming movie The Apparition. Here's more:


  • On growing up in Florida: "It was great. I mean, it was great until I realized that there was more out there. I went to a public high school with a magnet program for law and psychology. But right before my junior year, I decided that I wanted to leave and become an actress, so I graduated early and moved out to LA. Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine living there."
  • On getting the role of Alice Cullen: "It was just another audition. My managers were like, 'You’re going into a great casting office. They cast great projects. They’re sticklers. If you suck, they won’t call you back in.' So I was like, OK, I’ll pay extra attention. Then I figured out there wasn’t a script or a breakdown, but there was a book. So I got the series and fell in love with it. Then that determination kicked in and I was like, OK, I’m going to book this part is what’s going to happen. I worked my butt off for it."

Paul Rudd: The "Frat Pack" Man of the Year 2009

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Paul Rudd cemented his leading-man status by appearing in virtually every scene in the critical and box office hit I Love You, Man this spring. Rudd really hoisted the movie on his shoulders by being both sympathetic and creepy/awkward at the same time. And while Jason Segel made for an appealing foil this really was Rudd’s movie. The role culminated Rudd’s rise over the past five years from indie star to a recognizable face but not a name, to a well-known “supporting guy’s guy” to finally a leading man with name recognition.

Rudd also appeared briefly in Monsters vs. Aliens and was found time to cameo in the best scene in Year One. Following the success of 2008’s Role Models and I Love You, Man this year, Rudd could arguably be considered a peer of the traditional Frat Pack actors (”just like Jack Black, but better” in terms of popularity). In fact, Rudd spent the rest of 2009 filming movies opposite Owen Wilson (the James L. Brooks film) and Steve Carell (Dinner for Schmucks).

As noted by the chart below, Rudd really has credibility as a full-fledged member of both Team Apatow as well as the Frat Pack itself. While Rudd’s Knocked Up buddy Seth Rogen aliened some audiences, Rudd gave the people what they wanted and more.

So, with strong consensus from Frat Pack Tribute editors and readers, the Frat Pack Man of the Year is the man who “slappa da bass,” Paul Rudd.

The Original Fatchelor and Wife Split

The Bachelor’s Bob Guiney and Wife Rebecca Budig Split

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It looks like Bob Guiney is a bachelor once again.

The reality star — who became beloved as the jovial, self-effacing regular guy looking for love with Trista Rehn (now Trista Sutter) on The Bachelorette and then as the star of season 4 of ABC’s The Bachelor — and his wife of five years, All My Children star Rebecca Budig, are on the outs, according to several sources close to the couple.

“Lately it’s become clear that nothing is going to save this,” a friend of Budig says. “They’ve just grown apart and are no longer the people they were when they got married.”

The couple tell PEOPLE in an exclusive statement: “We love each other very much. We are best friends and don’t know what the future holds.”

Meanwhile, a source close to the couple says, “They talk on the phone every day and they truly are best friends. They don’t know what is going to happen. They haven’t filed for divorce.” Adds the source, “They’re not even fighting.”

Although a source close to Guiney insists that he has re-entered the singles scene, the friend of the couple denies he’s back on the market: “He’s not at a point to date because it’s not over.”

Still, the friend of Budig says, “They’ve been on the rocks for a long time.”

Last March, Budig left her role as mischievous Greenlee on All My Children, which taped in New York City, citing her need to spend more time in Los Angeles with her husband. Ironically, she no longer has to choose between the two: All My Children recently relocated to Los Angeles, and Budig has since rejoined the show. But being on the same coast hasn’t been enough to save the marriage, says the Budig source. “It’s over and it’s been over for a while now.”

At Wednesday’s Television Critics Association event in Pasadena, Calif., Budig was present — and noticeably not wearing her wedding ring.

“I was late and ran out the door and just forgot to put it on,” she told a reporter before retreating hastily from an interview. –Joey Bartolomeo, Susan Young and Liz McNeil
