Well...Isn't This Pleasant (NSFW-ish)

Brazilian model Jesus Luz squeezes into a pair of zippered Rufskin jeans in this sexy new spread from Interview Magazine. The 23-year-old model also donned a The Leather Man blindfold, Leather Impact straps, Palmer and Sons bracelets, and Dolce & Gabbana underwear.

Jesus told the mag how he got his name: “My father [gave me] my name because he always admired Jesus Christ as the most philosophical mind of all time. So, when he named me, in his heart and his head, he made a deal, like, I’m going to name you Jesus so everything good in life is going to come to you because they’re going to make the homage to Jesus. It’s a very special name. My name is ‘Luz,’ too, which means ‘light.’ So I feel like if I have this name that’s so special, I should attract good energy.”

Anne Hathaway wins some award

Anne Hathaway Selected for Pudding Woman of the Year

Anne J. Hathaway—the star of movies ranging from The Princess Diaries to Rachel Getting Married—will be honored as Hasty Pudding Theatricals' 2010 Woman of the Year, officials at the Pudding said today.

"You can confirm it," said Clifford N. Murray '10, the theatrical organization's president, in an interview with The Crimson on Wednesday. Murray referred further comment to press manager David J. Smolinsky '11.

The Pudding selected Hathaway, 27, for her background in and commitment to theater, as well as her ability to play characters whose personalities and situations widely vary, according to Smolinsky.

"What impressed us the most has definitely been her range and the ability with which she can play such diverse characters," Smolinsky said, citing her roles in films ranging from comedies such as Get Smart to more serious films like The Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain.

Smolinsky also said that the Pudding was impressed by Hathaway's background in the arts.

"She grew up in musical theater," he said, noting that she performed in a public performance of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in New York City.

Awww… Nick Hearts Taylor!

At a recent concert in Philly, Nick Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers and more recently Nick Jonas and the Administration, showed a little love to country crossover star Taylor Swift.

Before launching into a cover of Taylor’s hit “You Belong With Me”, Nick gave her a shout-out, saying, “This next artist has had a fantastic year . . . and I just want to give her a big congratulations”.

Awww… I guess he’s not harboring any ill-will toward his brother Joe’s ex. Good for him.

Aaron Stanford (aka Pyro aka Will Traveller aka Doug from The Hills Have Eyes)'s movie that I've been pimping for months FINALLY has a trailer out. The movie is called Runaway. It's about this dude and his little brother, and the dude took his little brother and is on the run from his abusive father. Meanwhile, he works nights at this gas station and has a thing for Robin Tunney. Melissa Leo is his mom and his eyes look very green (<--this is relevant information, just so you know.)

The trailer is here:

You can rent Runaway on Netflix, buy it on Amazon, or go out and rent it. You can also find out more about Runaway on their facebook page.

Source is youtube and the massive amount of free time I have on my hands....

ETA: Stanford was in Traveler with Matt Bomer, so you know.. If you're looking for an excuse to post gifs, it's totally on topic...

Taylor Swift blogs w/ pictures

"Thank you January. I have had this month off. I have walked on snow-covered grass and discovered new coffee shops and laughed hysterically with friends about things that probably weren't technically funny. I've written songs on napkins and sat at a giant table with my whole family on my mother's birthday, all of us in one place for the first time in too long. I've gotten to take what has happened to me and process it to my full capability, and celebrate it the way it deserved to be celebrated. I've made new music. I've gone over the memories and jumped up and down with my producer and floated around with nothing on my schedule other than just appreciating what my life has somehow turned into. So thank you for giving me so much to be thankful for this January. Thank you beyond what I know how to say.

I got a new camera. Do you want to see some pictures?"

Adele Working With Jack White

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The beautiful and talented soul singer Adele has enlisted the services of White Stripes rocker Jack White to help out with her upcoming sophomore album.

The pair recently had a long-overdue songwriting session together which has been in the works since way back in 2008, when Jack cancelled a scheduled session with Adele to record the James Bond theme song “Another Way to Die” with Alicia Keys.

Also contributing to Adele’s new album is Eg White who crafted the majority of her stunning debut 19, as well as Ryan Tedder who recently promised that he wasn’t going to overshadow Adele’s trademark sound with his own.

Adele’s critically acclaimed first album 19 was released at the beginning of 2008 and sold over 2 million copies worldwide, scoring the singer two Grammy awards in the process.

Lady Gaga post

Lady Gaga, Tom Ford scoop nominations

Lady Gaga and Tom Ford, the iconic fashion designer turned film-maker, have scooped nominations at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's (GLAAD) annual media awards.

Gaga with her campy appeal and hazy sexuality has led nominations in the outstanding music artist category. Others included American indie band Gossip, Brandi Carlile and American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, who came out as gay in Rolling Stone magazine.

Among TV shows nominated for the March 13 GLAAD awards in New York are True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men, Skins, Glee and The United States of Tara.

Canadian designer Mark Fast declines to give clothes to Lady Gaga, gives them to Topshop instead

Just before the holidays, we predicted that Canadian designer Mark Fast would be thrust into the spotlight in 2010. Three short weeks later, we were proven right. Back then, we wondered whether the designer’s attention-grabbing show during London fashion week (it included plus-sized models) was a fluke, but since his quick trip to Toronto in December, he’s been making headlines all over the world.

It seems the humble Manitoban has a knack for handling the press. Last week, he refused to lend his clothes to armoured style icon Lady Gaga (even though he loves “Bad Romance”), saying his designs are not about “fast food fashion.” That’s a head scratcher of a statement, since he launched a lower-priced diffusion line called Faster the same week and since there is talk about him designing a line for the speediest of fashion retailers, Topshop (also rumoured to be opening in Toronto in the near future).

Support Haiti, Get Involved!

If you have any more for countries not listed, please comment & I will add them to this post. Also, thank you to the mods for approving this - I think we have a responsibility, when we're a community so large, to do whatever we can. We have a LOT of members and we can make a difference, a tangible difference. Just to give you an idea - Yele raised over $400,000 yesterday just from texting. I'm so proud of everyone all over the world coming together - we have a real opportunity to help our fellow man here. Even if it's just five dollars, that means water for someone, that means someone gets food or medical care. For those of you asking about donating clothing or food - the reason that these organizations prefer money is because they can buy the supplies in Haiti, stimulating the economy as well as providing support.  At some point, these groups will probably be open to these sorts of donations, but right now the best thing we can do is to give money. We can make a difference and here are some ways we can do that:

Here's a tentative list of ways to help:

“Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to Wyclef Jean’s Yéle Foundation
“Haiti” to 85944 to donate $5 to Rescue Union Mission and MedCorp International

“Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross in the U.S.
Partners in Health needs surgeons, doctors, nurses and other medical personnel.

Cheryl Cole and Kimberley Walsh lead the pack at Gary Barlow's 10th wedding anniversary party

As the talent behind Take That he's the undisputed King of the boybands. So perhaps it was only natural that Gary Barlow's party saw him joined by the Queen of the girlbands.

As the singer celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary to wife Dawn last night he was joined by none other than Cheryl Cole, who led a host of stars helping the couple celebrate.

The event turned into a reunion for Barlow, Cheryl and their Mount Kilimanjaro hiking buddies, who climbed the African mountain last year for Comic Relief.

The Ting Tings name new album 'Kunst'


Band reveal details of 'We Started Nothing' follow-up

The Ting Tings have revealed that they plan to name their forthcoming second album 'Kunst'.

Katie White and Jules De Martino's next effort, which they have been recording in Berlin, is set for release later this year – with the pair telling NME.COM that the title was inspired by a massage parlour near their studio.

"Just round the corner to our studio there's a massage parlour, it's called Massage Kunst," De Martino explained. "It's Massage Art, basically ["kunst" is German for "art"]. We took a picture of that and sent it to our label, saying this is the title of the album. They went berserk."

The pair said that song titles set for the final tracklisting of the follow-up to their 2008 debut 'We Started Nothing' include 'Help' and 'Hands'.

"We listened back to some of the demos and we thought, hold on a minute, this is sounding too much like we’re rocking out live," De Martino added of early album sessions. "We bought a couple of old weird synths in New York and smuggled them in our suitcases back to Berlin and they started to come strong on the music."


Ting Tings are the musical guests on Saturday Night Live this weekend.


The story behind American Idol's "Pants on The Ground" Guy - General Larry Platt

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We all got a good chuckle Wednesday out of General Larry Platt and his Pants on the Ground song. Entertaining as he was, I couldn't help but wonder why the American Idol producers saved the last spot of the show for a 62-year-old guy with a funny song.
Now I think I know.

Take a look at the photograph on the home page of the Civil Rights Veterans Movement website. See the young man on the left, looking directly into the camera? That's Larry Platt, age 16.

"We had come by bus in 1963 to a church in Savannah, Georgia to plan a march to desegregate the city," Platt writes. "Reverend Hosea Williams and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were our leaders. That particular planned march was canceled and we were singing to raise our spirits before returning home."

Platt worked with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Georgia, organizing sit-ins in the South.

He was beaten during the Bloody Sunday March from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery.

He got his nickname, "General," from the Rev. Hosea Williams because of his heroic efforts on behalf of the civil-rights movement.

The Georgia General Assembly proclaimed Sept. 4, 2001, Larry Platt Day in Atlanta, because of "his great energy and commitment to equality and the protection of the innocent and for his outstanding service to the Atlanta community and the citizens of Georgia."

He remains a community activist in the Atlanta area and recently has become known for publicly protesting foreclosures.

If anybody in that Atlanta crowd deserved his 15 minutes of fame on national television, it was Larry Platt.

When he tells you to get your pants off the ground, you'd best listen.

FIRST LOOK: Adam Lambert Sits Down with Oprah

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's hardly like Adam Lambert to be anything but upfront, so the recent mystery about his possible appearing with Oprah Winfrey on her show was a bit baffling. But baffle no more.

While the American Idol sensation addressed the rumors and Twittered last Thursday, "Oprah: def true," word from the Winfrey camp reached PEOPLE to say that the 27-year-old and the media queen taped their interview Wednesday at the Harpo Studios in Chicago. The show will air Tuesday, Jan. 19.

In the course of their sit-down, Lambert touched upon Simon Cowell's announced departure from Idol and its possible ramifications for the show, what life was like for him both pre-Idol and after, and his controversial performance at the American Music Awards.

The singer also performed "Whataya Want from Me" from his new album For Your Entertainment. Also on the Oprah Winfrey Show with Adam: chart-topper Susan Boyle.

Kate Gosselin Hates Her $7,000 Hair Extensions!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hair today, tears tomorrow?

Kate Gosselin, 34, marked the new year by trading in her signature spiky bob for long, blonde locks in a process that took 20 hours of work and would normally cost $7,000 (hers was comped).

Just one problem: "She hates it!" a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly.

"She thinks her hair looks over­processed and damaged," adds the insider. "She's afraid people will think she's one of Tiger Woods' bimbos!" (In an online video posted Jan. 10, Gosselin looks in the mirror and says, "Oh, Lord have mercy... it's weird.)

Also not fans? Twins Cara and Mady, 9, who shrieked "Eww!" when they saw their made-over mom.

"They started laughing,"
says the source. "Kate ended up in her room crying."

But not all hope is lost. On Jan. 8, Gosselin had a stylist visit her Pennsylvania home to coach her on how to care for her new look.

"Kate has been trying different things, from headbands to ponytails to a Farrah Fawcett–style 'do. She's just not sure what she wants."

Rep: Katy Perry Is Not Pregnant

Despite the rumors circulating online, Katy Perry is not pregnant.

The star's rep tells UsMagazine.com that reports claiming Perry -- who got engaged to Russell Brand on New Year's Eve in India -- was getting a sonogram and showing off a baby bump were "not true."

Plus, the singer, 25, took to her Twitter account to say that she was on "my period" Wednesday evening.

"Better luck next month peepz,"
she posted.

Still, Perry didn't do much to squash pregnancy rumors this past Sunday, when she and her fiance scoped out booties at a baby boutique in North London.


Judy to Liza: "have a burger"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hollywood legend Judy Garland gave her equally famous daughter Liza Minnelli some pretty sound advice in her younger years that would be of benefit to so many rising stars today.

“Both of my parents told me leave the performance on the stage. Give the fans everything they hoped for, but once the show is over, go have a burger,” Minnelli told Tarts in an exclusive interview.

But despite Minnelli’s long and profound career on the stage, she still had to battle to get her latest show “Liza’s at the Palace” (due out on DVD next month) to the Big Apple, as a result of the dwindling interest in theater over recent years. “Liza’s at the Palace,” which earned a Grammy nod for its soundtrack, is a recreation of Minnelli’s godmother Kay Thompson’s nightclub performance at Ciro’s in Hollywood in the 1950’s.

“I wanted to honor this remarkable woman, she was an unflappable force, an uplifting inspiration and a true friend,” Minnelli said. “My greatest hope is that a new generation of fans will discover the magic that was Kay Thompson, a true renaissance woman if ever there was one. And I want my fans to know that nothing makes me happier than entertaining them.”

And as for her cameo in the upcoming “Sex in the City 2” flick?

“I'm sworn to secrecy! Really! But all the ladies were simply terrific!” Minnelli added.

Kourtney is the Kleverest Kardashian Sister

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kourtney Kardashian has two things on her sisters: First, she has a newborn baby and second — she’s the smartest of the siblings. Wonder what Khloé and Kim would say about that?

OK! magazine’s cover girl told Jay Leno how the Kardashian girls fall in terms of their intelligence: Book smarts would be me first. And then Kim, Khloé, Kylie, and Kendall. Or Kendall and then Kylie. That’s the oldest order.”

Maybe they’ll all have babies in that order too? Of course, Kourtney got in their first and had her son Mason Dash with boyfriend Scott Disick, and she’s already a proud mom. “It’s been a month [since his birth],” she said, “he’s delicious.”

However, being a mother is a far cry from her younger single days. She reminisced about making Kim dump one of her childhood boyfriends.

“When I was in 9th grade, Kim called a guy for me, and broke up with him on his answering machine and pretended it was me. And the guy was home sick with bronchitis. Then I like, dated his best friend that day.”

And although she says she’s book smart, Kourtney clearly isn’t a sports fan. She shared a discovery about her brother-in-law, Laker Lamar Odom. “I had no idea that he even played like, the whole game,” she says.

“After the game, I was like, ‘Woah, you actually play like, the whole game? Who knew? Good job, Lamar!’”

It also sounds like the clan need a do-over on a certain game show. “Our family did the Celebrity Family Feud, and the only reason why we lost is because they put Khloé and I at the end of the line-up, so the only people they got to ask questions to was to my mom, Kim, and Bruce [Jenner]. Khloé and I knew every answer, so we lost.”


J.J. Abrams casts another 'Undercovers' actor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actor-writer Ben Schwartz is the latest addition to the cast of J.J. Abrams' NBC pilot "Undercovers."

"Undercovers," which Abrams co-wrote with Josh Reims, revolves around Steven (Boris Kodjoe) and Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a domesticated husband and wife who are re-activated as CIA agents after years of retirement.

Schwartz will play a young CIA agent who is wildly respectful of Steve's career as an agent.

Abrams is directing the Warner Bros. TV-produced pilot, which he co-wrote with Josh Reims.

Schwartz, a sketch performer for the Upright Citizens Brigade, was a member of the team that won an Emmy for writing Hugh Jackman's opening number at the Oscars last year.

As an actor, he recently wrapped the feature comedy "The Other Guys."

'Gossip Girls' gone wild at eatery

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Certain cast members of "Gossip Girl" behaved exactly like the obnoxious, ill-tempered rich kids they play on TV at Philippe Tuesday night, according to a fellow diner.

Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and a posse of their pampered pals barreled into the trendy East 60th Street eatery, cursing and talking so loudly that other customers complained, a source told The Post's Jennifer Fermino.

When one man at a table of lawyers and investment bankers politely asked Meester to watch her language, she allegedly shouted, "f - - - you! How dare you tell us to keep it down?" The spy added, "Other girls in their party were being really nasty, too."

Finally, Westwick jumped in and pleaded for peace, saying, "Don't worry about my friends," and, "We should all be happy. Let's hug it up, guys." Our witness ended up hugging affable Westwick.

Reps for the actors didn't get back to us and Philippe staff declined to comment.

We've learned two of Casey's friends have come forward and said they each received separate calls from the late Johnson & Johnson heiress saying her relationship with Tila was "all for show." The friends say Casey told them she had met Tila only 3 days before the infamous engagement video.

The friends say Casey made it very clear ... she and Tila were not together. And here's the thing ... a friend says Tila was in the room when Casey made the calls.

Tila is now saying she wants custody of Casey's daughter. FYI, she has no legal standing to even make a case.

Stars Lining Up to Replace Simon, Says ‘Idol’ Producer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
While some American Idol fans are still reeling from Monday’s announcement that resident grump Simon Cowell will be vacating his seat the judges’ table at the end of this season, the hit show’s creator isn’t worried about having to find a replacement for the ornery Brit, because, he claims, celebs are lined up to take his spot.

“A day doesn’t pass that I don’t get a call from an agent of a superstar saying, ‘Can we talk?’” Idol creator Simon Fuller tells the Associated Press. “Everyone’s interested, and that’s going to go on month after month.”

Calm words from a man who most recently had to fill a seat left vacant by the exit of loopy judge, former pop star Paula Abdul. Of course, Fuller didn’t succeed in finding just anyone to step in, he locked up TV talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres.

“It’s a testament to [Idol] that we attracted someone as brilliant as Ellen,” he explains to the AP. “When we have to do something about Simon, I’ll be in the luxury position of looking at all the greatest stars of the world… We can do so much with it.”

Speaking of Ellen, the comedienne finally began working on Idol this week as the Hollywood Round, where all those early auditioners who earned Golden Tickets get whittled down to the much smaller group of semifinalists, kicks off.

Of course, that was for the pilot that had already aired last spring on NBC, so I’d hesitate to draw any conclusion about whether or not that rating will cause TNT to produce more episodes than those already in the can.

What likely matters far more to that decision is how the 6 (or 7?) episodes already produced for the second season (but, as yet unaired) do on TNT. Stay tuned.

Conan O'Brien's 'Tonight Show' Viewership Rises Amid Turmoil

As NBC and Conan O'Brien engage in a game of brinkmanship over the future of "The Tonight Show," Mr. O'Brien's audience has surged, especially among younger people.

About 42% more viewers between the ages of 18 and 49 watched the "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" Tuesday compared to a day earlier, according to preliminary Nielsen data provided by NBC.

The boost came after Mr. O'Brien rejected NBC's plan to effectively demote him in favor of comedian Jay Leno.

Colin Farrell and his smug girlfriend back in LA with Henry. Also 'Ondine' finds a US Distributor

Magnolia Buys Jordan’s Ondine, Starring Farrell

Finally, months after its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, Magnolia Pictures has landed U.S. rights to Neil Jordan’s Ondine, starring Colin Farrell in a rare performance in his native dialect. (The film scored eight nominations for the Irish Film and Television Awards.) According to Movieline’s Stu VanAirsdale, the final cut of the Paramount Vantage leftover will be different from the one screened in Toronto:
The film features Colin Farrell as a fisherman who snares a beautiful, mysterious woman while trolling off the Irish coast. His ill daughter thinks the woman is a mermaid; his ex-wife thinks she’s just trouble. And a strange man with answers to everything stalks the proceedings in the background. It’s a bit of a trip, totally beautiful, kind of all over the place, and the version I saw at TIFF featured a racy, operatic sex scene that must have been cut to achieve the film’s recently awarded PG-13 rating. (Farrell and co-star Alicja Bachleda became an item on the set, welcoming a son last October.)

Also, yay! We'll be seeing Colin present at the GG Sunday.

Noah Cyrus continues to prove that Billy Ray sucks at parenting.

Miley Cyrus's 10-year old little sister Noah (Noie if your nasty) has taken to the Internet video world once again, and this time it's all about canes, sunglasses and plenty of beer.

Noie and her pal -- rumored to be her cousin Shelby Cyrus in man drag -- uploaded a video to YouTube last night of the duo singing and dancing to Ke$ha's No. 1 single "Tik Tok." While it starts all fun and silly, the video slowly invoked queasy feelings of awkwardness within the PopWrap office. At least the moments where we weren't spitting out our western omelet in fits of laughter.

As the dance number (and we use that term very loosely) comes out of the gate, we see canes for props, sunglasses as costumes and jolting dance moves that would have the entire panel of "SYTYCD" hiding those tickets to Vegas.

Some of the key weird moments include when Noie zones out at the :54 second mark, almost like she is re-booting -- no offense to Vicki from Small Wonder, we love you Vick. Then there is the moment when Noie mouths the words "ain't got a care in the world, but got plenty of beer," as she downs a Red Bull as a faux brewski. Will someone just give this girl something to do ... like her homework!

I don't know, maybe enroll her in school or see if she wants to take some ballet lessons. I'm just spit-balling here but you could also not give her a webcam and YouTube account, maybe replace it with a Bonnie Bell make-up kit and some Pound Puppies.

Quasistars (but not the kind in space) React to Haitian Earthquake

In the wake of the destruction left in Haiti after an earthquake registering 7.0 on the Richter scale destroyed much of the area in and around the country's capital of Port-au-Prince, celebrities ranging from Selena Gomez to Adam Lambert have taken to Twitter to encourage their followers to send aid to the devastated nation.

Rumor: Conan off the air as of Jan. 22?

Is Next Week Conan’s Last As Host of the Tonight Show?

We're not sure! But ESPN's Sports Guy and former Kimmel staffer Bill Simmons just tweeted the following: "FYI: Next week is Conan's final week hosting the Tonight Show. His staff is trying to book big guests so he goes out with a bang. It's true." However, as anyone who follows his NFL predictions will attest, we would advise you to take this rumor with a grain of salt.


Hope it's not true, but I have a feeling it might be.

Bar Refaeli dodged army duty, Israeli general claims

Israel's military has a new target in their sights, Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, Sky News reported Thursday.

An Israel Defense Forces major general even called for a boycott of products advertised by the blonde bombshell.

Refaeli was under fire for reportedly evading national service by marrying a family friend and divorcing him shortly afterwards. Under Israeli law, married women do not have to serve the otherwise compulsory two years in the military.

Outside Israel, Rafaeli is famous for her sizzling lingerie and sportswear advertisements, as well as her on-off romance with actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Her most recent video, advertising Passionata Lingerie, evokes the spirit of Hollywood legend Brigitte Bardot.

Calling for a boycott of Refaeli-advertised products, Major General Avi Zamir said, "At the end of the day, she is the one who has to look at herself in the mirror. We are a society that has an army, and Bar Refaeli doesn't have to participate in ads for Fox and, if she advertises Fox, then you shouldn't buy their products."

Refaeli has become controversial since the revelations about her marriage and a recent application to be registered as a non resident in Israel to avoid paying tax.

She has been contrasted unfavorably with fellow blonde beauty and supermodel Esti Ginzberg, who has not avoided national service. The 19-year-old recently traded her swimsuits for military fatigues and also criticized Refaeli for not doing so.

Refaeli's mother has joined the debate about her daughter, telling Israeli website Walla.co.il, "The general is a disgrace. Before they attack Bar they should check the government and see who in government did not join the army."

I heard about her avoiding the army, but secretly getting married and trying to avoid taxes? Damn.

Kate Moss’s affair with a European Royal

KATE MOSS' love life has long been the subject of tabloid rumour and fascination, but today the papers are abuzz with the news that the former heir to the throne of Italy has admitted an affair with the supermodel.

Prince Emanuele Filiberto admitted that he was introduced to Moss by mutual friend Marianne Faithfull when the pair holidayed at his villa in Corsica around eight years ago - and spoke nostalgically of his time with the supermodel.

"Who would not fall in love with Kate Moss? She is charming, intelligent and very beautiful," Filiberto told Italian magazine Chi. "We were together for about eight months and she was a wonderful and fascinating woman, not bizarre or weird at all. Then our relationship ended because that's how things go. But I remember her as a passionate woman."

The Prince, who is now married to French actress Clotilde Courau, is the only child of Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples - heir to the now retired throne of Italy.

Kids Reenact MTV’s Hit Series "Jersey Shore"

Looking like a fool, with your pants on the ground.

Violent video games have "a much bigger negative influence on kids" than pornography, a leading porn star Ron Jeremy has claimed.

He said parents should be more worried about the harmful effects of such games.

Mr Jeremy's comments were made at a session called the Great Porn Debate during the Consumer Electronics Show, CES, in Las Vegas.

His comments angered gamers, who accused him of "ignorance".

Mr Jeremy's appearance at CES in Las Vegas caused some raised eyebrows.

He took time away from the Adult Entertainment Expo, which takes place in Las Vegas at the same time as the annual tech fest, to speak out on behalf of his profession and promote some practical tools.

"Studies have found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids," Mr Jeremy said.

Golden Girl Rue McClanahan has suffered a stroke while recovering from a bypass operation.

McClanahan, 75, collapsed in a New York hospital a week after undergoing the heart surgery in November last year, according to reports.

Her husband Morrow Wilson said that she could not walk and was struggling with her speech.

Tila Tequila Lied About When She Got Back From Houston

Tila Tequila said the only reason she wasn't with Casey Johnson at the time of her death, was because Casey had urged Tila to make up with her family and go home for the holidays.

Tila sat down with RadarOnline for an interview, in which she discussed her last conversation with Casey on December 30th,

"The last time I spoke with her was on the 30th, late on the 30th and everything was fine. The last thing she said was, 'I love you so much. I never want to lose you. I can't wait for us to start our family together.' And then I said, 'I love you too and I'll be back home soon.'"

She then claims to have called Casey again on the 31st, but that call "went straight to voicemail." She says it wasn't until she received a call from Joe Francis (later that day?), that she discovered Casey's death.

She lied.

DEAR MODS: The article was posted but not the actual picture. Thanks!

Gary Coleman is urging fans to boycott his latest movie “Midgets Vs. Mascots” after accusing producers of using an “ugly” body double in his full-frontal scene.

The diminutive actor was furious after learning a scene in the 2009 comedy appeared to show him revealing all – and now he’s threatening to sue the studio to prevent further DVD sales.

Coleman alleges he never agreed for his private parts to be revealed in the final cut – and insists the actor who stands in for him doesn’t do him justice.

He tells EOnline.com, “I wanted all my fans to protest my penis being in the movie, because I didn’t want that. It’s a body double, I believe, because I certainly was not gonna do this. And I heard that the body double is ugly, and is unattractive, and does not make me look good.“

Rihanna spotted warning signs

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna claims she began to spot warning signs before she was attacked by Chris Brown.

The 'Russian Roulette' singer was left battered and bruised by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown last February when he assaulted her in his car and in hindsight she could see the situation developing.

She said: "There were control issues, insecurity. When people are insecure they become very controlling and they can get very aggressive and in turn abusive. It doesn't have to be physical.

Like they would say bad stuff to you to make you feel lesser than them just so they would have control in the relationship. It takes a big toll on your emotions and on your everyday life. It changes you."

Rihanna also revealed she was emotionally drained when she recorded latest album 'Rated R' due to the attack, subsequent break-up and intense attention.

The 21-year-old pop star added in an interview with W magazine: "When I was making this album, every day I was in a different mood. Sometimes I was p***ed off, sometimes I was miserable, and every song brings out a different story.

"It's still hard to listen to certain songs. Certain ones I couldn't even record - I'd keep pushing them back.

"When the label finally said we had 12 hours to turn in the album, I was like, Okay, I have to record the last song. I just drank some red wine, dimmed the lights, got in the booth and sang it."

Chris, 20, was found guilty of the assault and ordered to carry out 80 hours of community labour, 12 months of domestic violence counselling and five years probation.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, was charged Thursday with driving under the influence after crashing his car into a telephone pole in New Jersey, PEOPLE confirms.

Police in Montville Township, N.J., responded to an emergency call made at 1:47 a.m. after a car struck a telephone pole. When they arrived, Giudice was at the scene and was then taken to the hospital, Police Captain Ed Rosellini tells PEOPLE.

He was charged with “driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, careless driving [and] failure to maintain his traffic lane,” Rosellini said.

Guidice was transported to Morristown Memorial Hospital and after his visit, he was handed over to the Clifton, N.J., Police Department because of outstanding warrants, Rosellini said.

There, he was held on $2,625 bail, according to TMZ.com, and was released at 6:20 a.m.

Courtney Love Threatens Lawsuit over Daughter's Custody

Courtney Love has again taken to Twitter, this time to rant about her plans to sue the mother and sister of Love's late husband Kurt Cobain over custody of daughter Frances Bean.

Using the new Twitter handle CourtneyLoveUK, the Hole frontwoman insisted: "this s--t with the bean needs to be exposed for what it is right f--king NOW enough."

Love, 45, also wrote (spelling and grammar hers): "they squeesed my bank accounts so that they were frozen because they know im going to sue the holy s--t out of them and now are … crocodiling my kid whose better than this seriously she was raised too well to be bought," referring to her daughter's grandmother,Wendy O'Conno, and aunt Kimberly Dawn Cobain.

Love, 45, has a temporary restraining order against her that prevents her from contacting her 17-year-old daughter.

Another Tweet from Love proclaims: "im severely lonely without my best friend and no am not on drugs BTW."

Olivia Wilde On the Fashion Perks that Accompany the ‘Circus’ of Fame

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Olivia Wilde ditched her House scrubs in favor of a much more high-fashion look on Monday at the Fox TCA party in Pasadena. Wearing a fitted long sleeved mini dress with a dramatic ruffle on one shoulder, the actress stopped to chat with PEOPLE about how she picks pieces for events.

“I just really like Alexander McQueen,” she says of the edgy British designer who made her electric blue shift. “Every designer has samples, and then for this fun stuff, we get to borrow things and I just have certain designers that I like to borrow from.”

Being in the spotlight does have its drawbacks too, as the 25 year-old admits, “It’s a circus and you might as well have fun, and so I definitely have kind of decided to rather than kind of resent this whole part of the business because I feel somewhat over it, bored by it, jaded; rather than going in that direction I’ve just decided to have fun with it and just-I don’t know-create something interesting out of it.”

All in all, Wilde is circumspect about her rising profile: “It changes the way that you move through the airport, let’s say, or changes the way that you view your privacy but the positive effects are it gives you more creative control and gives you access to things that you didn’t have access to before. So that’s really great.”

The man behind the fashionable style of Gossip Girl says the secret behind maintaining the cast’s physique is simple: underwear. “There’s a whole under-architecture system that happens on this show and on TV,” Eric Daman, costume designer for the fashion-forward show, told PEOPLE. “There’s a whole architecture that makes your boobs look great and your [rear] look great — just get some really good underwear and you’re good to go.”

Daman, who celebrated the recent release of his book You Know You Want It at a bash hosted by Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick at New York’s Henri Bendel, explained that he works closely with the girls to create a unique look for each character. “I’ve been working with them since day one and we have a really great rapport together,” Daman said. “I’ve helped them become fashion icons and they’ve helped me become who I am and it’s a great give-and-take.”

Tila Tequila: I "Scream Out at Night" for Casey Johnson

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Tila Tequila is losing sleep over the death of her fiancee Casey Johnson.

"I would like to see her right now. Right now. But if that's not going to happen, then I hope she hears me when I scream out for her at night when I can't sleep," Tequila, 28, tells Chaunce Hayden in Steppin' Out magazine.

"The bed is so empty without my wife and our dogs," Tequila goes on.

Tequila says she and Johnson, 30, who was found dead on Jan. 4, "were and still are very much in love. It wasn't love like either of us had ever experienced before. That is why we got engaged so fast.

"We wanted to hurry up and start the next chapter of our lives together. Just me, her, Ava, our 3 dogs, and another little one on the way,"
adds Tequila, who has been hinting she's pregnant on Twitter. (She also said Wednesday that she’s going to seek custody of Casey's adopted daughter, Ava.)

Tequila says she and Johnson "became domesticated" and "were so happy happy that we never left the bedroom. That was our favorite hang out spot. My bedroom and my Jacuzzi."

"We were everything that both of us ever needed. Each other," she goes on.

Tequila says she's not giving back the 17-carat engagement ring Johnson gave her.

"I have it and will never let anyone take it away from me. That is something my wife gave to me to promise our courtship together for the rest of our lives," she says. "I was so happy. The ring is absolutely real."

She also claims that she was bumped from appearing on Larry King Live because the Johnson family "threatened to sue Larry King if I'm on his show."

Hugh Jackman

Australian actor Hugh Jackman is making his first appearance on a regular TV series in more than three years after scoring a gig on long-running childrens program Sesame Street.
Wolverine’s leading man will feature in the program’s 40th season, which premieres in Australia on ABC For Kids on February 1, in a star-studded series which includes appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, Sex And The City actress Sarah Jessica Parker, NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant and Lost’s Matthew Fox.

While Jackman has hosted and presented at various award ceremonies including the Academy Awards last year, Sesame Street is Jackman’s first TV appearance on a regular program since he starred in musical-dramedy Viva Laughlin in 2007.

The actor will pay a visit to Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and the rest of the Sesame Street gang when he presents “concentrate”, the episode’s “Word On The Street”.

Jackman’s participation in the program follows his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, teaming up with Elmo to raise awareness about adoption on the program in November last year.

Jackman and Furness have two children Oscar, 9, and Ava, 4.

VH1’s “The New Virginity”: Yet Another Documentary About Virgins

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Virginity documentaries: they’re hot right now. A few weeks ago we reported on an upcoming documentary, “How To Lose Your Virginity,” by filmmaker Therese Shechter. But tonight at 11p.m. (EST), VH1 joins in with an episode called “The New Virginity” for VH1 News. The program focuses mostly on the virgins of pop culture — the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Donna Martin on 90210, etc. — and the hypocrisy of their at-times-sexual public persona with their alleged chastity vows. It will also explain creepy practices like abstinence pledges and purity balls to those of us lucky enough not to get roped into them. Plus, Jessica Valenti, author of The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession With Virginity Is Hurting Young Women and one of the co-founders of Feministing, will be featured as an expert — that’s reason enough to watch!


oh WTF?

A purity ball (also known as a father-daughter purity ball[1] or purity wedding[2]) is a formal ball dance event attended by fathers and their daughters. Purity balls promote virginity until marriage for teenage girls, and are often closely associated with U.S. Christian churches, particularly fundamentalist churches.[citation needed] Typically, daughters who attend make a virginity pledge; a pledge to remain sexually abstinent until marriage. Fathers who attend pledge to protect what they view as their young daughters' purity of mind, body, and soul. Proponents[who?] promote a strong father-daughter relationship as a means to affirm what they consider to constitute spiritual and physical purity.

As we first reported, under the contract Jay had been working under, he was guaranteed the 10 PM hour. By moving him to 11:35, NBC was in breach of his contract and needed to negotiate a new deal. That is now done, sources tell TMZ.

Vampire Weekend's sophomore album "Contra" is looking like a good bet for No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 chart. Based on first day sales numbers, industry sources are projecting that the album could sell between 60,000 to 75,000 copies, by week's end on Sunday, Jan. 17. That total would also make "Contra" the week's highest chart debut.

(ETA: Hits Daily Double has posted updated projections saying they will sell 110-120k.)

Ke$ha's "Animal" will likely slide out of its current No. 1 position to make way for Vampire Weekend, though it's too early to tell what kind of second-week sales drop "Animal" may face.


FUCK YEAH VAMPIRE WEEKEND! if you haven't bought contra yet, you should, even just to stick it to ke$ha. it's a great album, too! if you've heard it, what song's your favorite?

Rupert Grint, best known for playing the role of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, recalls his best and worst holiday experiences.

Great holidays…

What’s been your best holiday?

We went to the Isle of Wight as a family, three summers in a row. I’m the eldest of five children, but only James, now 19, and Georgina, now 16, were around then. We had a great time as there was so much to do there. We got up to a lot of mischief, exploring the caves and beaches. Our favourite attraction was a theme park called Blackgang Chine, which was set in a Victorian mansion and its estate grounds. It had ghosts and goblins, a Wild West section and a small train ride. You couldn’t ask for a better holiday for a kid.

And the best hotel you’ve stayed in?

Each year when the cast of Harry Potter stay in New York City for press interviews and the premieres, we stay at Essex House, an Art Deco hotel right on Central Park. My room had a great view of it. The first time we stayed there was not long after 9/11, so that was really eerie. The staff get to know us well because of our repeat visits and it’s a good location for sightseeing or shopping – not that our schedules allow for much downtime. For us, the best bit about our room is obviously the minibar.

TV Ratings Wednesday

American Idol’s second night was down from both yesterday and last season’s second night. ABC’s Ugly Betty held onto just a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Wednesday night’s Idol averaged 26.4 million people and a 10.1/27 with adults 18-49 from 8p-9:30p. A year earlier, a two hour version of Idol averaged 29.85 million and an 11.8 rating with adults 18-49 in the overnight numbers, so this year Idol is down 14 percent with adults 18-49 vs last year’s Wednesday premiere. Coupled with the Simpsons rerun Fox was down almost 28 percent for the night.

CBS didn’t have anything to celebrate at 8pm where its comedies were down a touch versus their performance against Idol last year, but at 9pm Criminal Minds was strong with a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating, destroying Law & Order: SVU and its 2.0. Though SVU didn’t get much help from Mercy I imagine NBC can’t wait to move SVU back to 10pm post Jay Leno in primetime.

My guess is ABC is pretty pleased with how its comedies held up against Idol from 8:30p-9:30p. A repeat Modern Family did nearly as well as a new Old Christine at 8pm, The Middle bested Gary Unmarried and Modern Family stayed above a 3.0 despite facing off with Idol.

Dr. Drew's drug shocker!

To millions of viewers who tune into VH1 reality series Celebrity Rehab and Sober House, David "Dr. Drew" Pinsky is one of Hollywood's most powerful weapons against drug and alcohol addiction. But now, in exclusive interviews with Life & Style, two former colleagues at KROQ -- the LA radio station that gave Drew, 51, his big break on the program Loveline -- have come forward to talk about the doc's past. They say Drew knows firsthand what it's like to fall under the spell of illegal drugs -- because he was once a frequent cocaine user himself.

In 1982, Drew hadn't even finished medical school when he met KROQ DJ Jim Trenton at a party. "I asked him to do this segment with me called Ask a Surgeon," Trenton tells Life & Style. "Listeners could call in and get answers to their romance and medical questions." The segment was such a hit, it soon evolved into Loveline -- which remains on the air to this day.

While they spent their days helping listeners with their love, sex and health-related problems, Drew and Jim spent many of their nights partying away. Often, Trenton says, that included cocaine use. "He used to say to me, 'Jim, I love cocaine,'" Trenton notes. "He'd say that a lot -- that he loved coke." In fact, Trenton adds, Drew "did coke with a lot of different people, including myself, on numerous occasions." Joanna Swylde, who worked as an intern at KROQ at the time and partied with Drew and Trenton, confirms Trenton's claims. She tells Life & Style they even used to snort lines of cocaine off album covers in the control room at work. "We would do it during the breaks on the show," Swylde recalls.

Although Drew used coke, "I don't think he was addicted to it," Trenton tells Life & Style. "He used it recreationally.

"I would say by the mid to late '80s, he had quit," Trenton says. "We all stopped doing it."

Sex Tapes of Lilo coming soon . . . ?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She’s definitely no stranger to partying into the wee hours, and early this morning (January 14) Lindsay Lohan was spotted heading home at 4:30am.

The “Mean Girls” actress had been hanging out at a Hollywood Hills house party following the Vida launch at Voyeur nightclub.

And as if she needed more bad news, a sex tape featuring LiLo is said to be making its way to the Internet in the not-too-distant future.

An insider told press, “This video file is dynamite. It is pretty seedy and shows Lindsay engaged in a particular sex act which, obviously, should remain behind closed doors. Lindsay was desperate to start 2010 off on a good footing and this is the very last thing she needs.”

“If and when it is released on the internet, via a spurious, unofficial website, there is absolutely nothing she or her lawyers can do about it. She is devastated — particularly as she is working hard on cleaning up her act. Lindsay has just made a serious documentary on child poverty in India for the BBC, she is terrified this will be put in jeopardy now. It is fair to say that Lindsay has had a pretty torrid past 24 hours.”

Tonight in Detroit (January 13), Lady Gaga told the audience how she will be throwing her current stage in a huge garbage disposal and how she has a completely new, massive stage she has been working on for her future shows in Australia, Asia, the UK and Europe.
Then she said that she can tell us that although she doesn’t exactly right now know when, but she will be bringing that stage back to North America for a second leg of “The Monster Ball”!

bestweekever.tv's Dan Hopper gives us a dainty little shoutout.

The other day I was just thinking, hey, I like baseball — why don’t I play it professionally for lots and lots of money? So I had my agent make some calls (my agent meaning me in a British accent), one thing leads to another, and suddenly the Brewers are offering me a contract.

Small-market clubs like the Brewers have to mine for talent wherever they can — Latin America, the Asian market, the Pop Culture Blogosphere — so hopefully I can blaze a trail for future bloggers with no baseball experience outside the JCC league in the early 90s and the occasional spastic whiffle ball game in Brooklyn parks. I don’t see how this idea can not work.

The A’s are currently scouting ONTD for a first baseman, while the Marlins are reportedly close to a deal with Gabe from Videogum.


This post means nothing, but I thought it was cute that he included us. Also, I love him.

Top Gear ‘ban’ on gay couples joining studio audience
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Gay couples are furious after being “banned” from studio recordings of Top Gear.

They are prevented from joining the TV audience under a bizarre rule that stipulates bookings must be “50 per cent male and 50 per cent female”.

But last night the policy was slammed as “discrimination”.

Simon Reeves, 26, who was turned down when he and his partner applied for tickets to the BBC2 show, said: “I couldn’t believe it.

“Top Gear is the blokiest show on telly but we weren’t allowed unless we took a couple of female friends.

“It seems unfair that a married heterosexual couple are the ‘ideal’ applicants but same sex couples have no chance whatsoever.

Simon, of Haslemere, Surrey, added: “It sounds like something Jeremy Clarkson came up with to ensure he didn’t have to put up with any gays.”

Roger Ebert reviews "The Lovely Bones"

The Lovely Bones

BY ROGER EBERT / January 13, 2010

"The Lovely Bones" is a deplorable film with this message: If you're a 14-year-old girl who has been brutally raped and murdered by a serial killer, you have a lot to look forward to. You can get together in heaven with the other teenage victims of the same killer, and gaze down in benevolence upon your family members as they mourn you and realize what a wonderful person you were. Sure, you miss your friends, but your fellow fatalities come dancing to greet you in a meadow of wildflowers, and how cool is that?

The makers of this film seem to have given slight thought to the psychology of teenage girls, less to the possibility that there is no heaven, and none at all to the likelihood that if there is one, it will not resemble a happy gathering of new Facebook friends. In its version of the events, the serial killer can almost be seen as a hero for liberating these girls from the tiresome ordeal of growing up and dispatching them directly to the Elysian Fields. The film's primary effect was to make me squirmy.

Lindsay Lohan sex tape doesn't exist

All day there have been rumors about an alleged sex tape, starring Lindsay Lohan.

News of the reported explicit video was trumpeted by the Daily Mail, which ran a headline that read, “Lindsay Lohan braces herself for release of internet sex tape.”

Perez Hilton and others couldn’t contain themselves from jumping all over it. The supposed video, said reports, features 47 seconds of Lohan “frolicking naked with a mystery male… It is pretty seedy and shows Lindsay engaged in a particular sex act which, obviously, should remain behind closed doors.”

According to the tale, the tape is in the possession of a waiter, who is going to release it worldwide via an “offshore porn site.”

Gossip Cop asked Lohan about the video, to which she replied, “What sex tape? Haha.”

Conan O’Brien may not be keeping “The Tonight Show” much longer, but he may be getting some good company.

Rush Limbaugh tells America not to donate to Haiti

Rush Limbaugh told his audience not to give money to Haiti after it was hit by an earthquake. Limbaugh said the country is run by dictatorships and the U.S. has already helped it.

On Wednesday, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh claimed President Obama is rushing to the aid of Haiti because it is a black community.

Among his comments, Limbaugh said Clinton was sending an envoy to the island nation the U.S. has already helped. The shock jock said aid would be used by the people of Haiti to become lazy.
Thaindian News quotes Limbaugh from the Wednesday show:

“Use this to burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the black community, in the… the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It’s made to order for them.”

Limbaugh also found fault with the White House for having a website that directs people to charitable organizations operating in Haiti.
Talking with a caller, Limbaugh speculated that donating via the site puts your money at risk and will not reach Haitians.
As the Huffington Post reports, Limbaugh said, "We've already donated to Haiti. It's called the U.S. income tax."
