Justin Timberlake Named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year



Justin Timberlake will soon have a new piece of hardware for his trophy case -- a pudding pot.

The Grammy and Emmy award winner was named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year on Tuesday.

Timberlake will receive the award at a roast set for Feb. 5.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe, said in a statement that the singer, songwriter, actor and producer was selected because he's "one of pop culture's most influential entertainers."

His album, "Justified," produced four No. 1 singles, making him the first artist in Nielsen Top 40 history with four No. 1 hits from one album. He has also appeared on television and in movies, including "Alpha Dog."

Actress Anne Hathaway was named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year earlier this month.

IDGAF, I still love you, Justin. Please make another fucking CD soon, because "FutureSex/LoveSounds" was my shit.

Recovery. Engagement. Charity. Soccer.

USA Soccer Player on his way to making a remarkable recovery less than 4 months after a horrific crash


Charlie Davies is lucky to be alive. He knows it, and even if he were to forget, there are plenty of reminders.
There are the surgical scars that now tattoo the American soccer star's body. There are the constant reminders from family and friends who never let him forget what he nearly lost, and what he has already overcome. Then there are the pictures burned into his memory of the mangled car he was pulled from after he survived a car crash that killed another passenger on Oct. 13. Davies, 23, sustained multiple serious injuries (a broken right femur and tibia, a broken left elbow, facial fractures and a lacerated bladder). The prognosis was that he would face an arduous six- to 12-month recovery and extensive rehabilitation.

She became a pin-up after lead roles in Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, but Uma Thurman won't be gracing anyone's walls looking like this.

The actress seemed to have been inspired by Dr.Seuss character The Cat In The Hat with her unusual choice of headgear.

Uma, 39, arrived at Heathrow airport wearing the foot-tall woolly hat, which added at least a foot to her overall height.

Ke$hathena Continues to grace us with her highness



Behind Ke$ha’s RS photo shoot.

What was your life like right before you became a pop star?
I was going to go to Barnard, so I came up to New York and studied comparative religion and psychology and stuff for three months, but that all went out the window. I loved math and I was way into studying the Cold War, so after high school, I would sneak in the college classes and listen, but then one day [hitmakers] Max Martin and Dr. Luke called me, and they were like, “Hey, be a pop star.” “Yeah, OK, let’s do this.”

You had a demo floating around?
Yeah, it was like trip-hop, it was so bad. At the end of one track I was just jacking off, making an ass of myself, and they were like, “Oh my God, she’s borderline retarded,” so they thought it was funny.

Why did you go to L.A.?
Luke and Max were there. At the same time, I don’t know who my birth father is, so this guy called me and was like, “Hey, I think I’m your birth father, I’ll buy you a plane ticket.” So I get off the plane and meet this guy. Have you ever seen The 40-Year-Old Virgin? You know that video game chair? He had one, and he played it all the time. I was like, “There’s no way that half of my DNA is made up of someone who has a video game chair.”

Angelina Jolie's first Appearance since the BRANGELINA SPLIT!

Glum Angelina steps out as dad Jon Voight blasts break-up rumours as 'ridiculous'

Angelina Jolie looked sombre as she stepped out in public for the first time since reportedly breaking up with Brad Pitt.



Pitt was nowhere to be seen as the actress faced the cameras dressed in black with her brother James Haven on her arm instead.

Her first public outing came as famous father Jon Voight waded in to his daughter's relationship woes by branding the rumours 'ridiculous'.

After seven years of not talking with Ange, Midnight Cowboy actor Voight stepped in to insist she is still very much with Pitt despite Brad's low profile.  

Grilled over the 'rift', the Oscar winner said: “Nonsense. It’s all made up stuff.”

The actor's rare comment about his daughter's family life comes seven years after he and his Jolie fell out when he publicly said she had "serious mental problems" on a US TV show in 2001.

Ben Affleck and Jen Garner being adorable in LA

Looking very much in love, Ben Affleck was spotted spending time alongside Jennifer Garner in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday afternoon (January 26).

Meeting up after tending to separate matters, the “Juno” actress and her “Good Will Hunting” hubby laughed amongst one another while chatting it up during their midday stroll.

The outing comes after Ben voiced his displeasure over Jen’s openness about his seductive writing skills during a recent interview with Parade magazine.

After being questioned about Garner’s comments, Affleck told press, “I do write emails to my wife, that is true. Sounds like the kind of thing that my wife was looking for something to say in the interview and that’s what she came up with.”

Insider says Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie did meet with lawyer - to protect their $330 million assets

Don't hold your breath, Jen: We hear Brad Pitt isn't planning to come a-knockin' - just yet, anyway.

After days of speculation about a possible breakup between Mr. Pitt and his other half, Angelina Jolie, word is surfacing that the power couple did indeed visit a high-powered L.A. lawyer last week - but only to cover their assets.

"They aren't married, so they need to protect their children and property in case there's a rift in the future," a source says.

That certainly makes sense, considering the two are worth a whopping $330 million combined.

So why are rumors of a breakup running rampant?

"People hear 'legal papers' and assume it means a divorce," our snitch continues. "But it could mean exactly the opposite. Either way, they're making sure to get their ducks in a row, which they'll need whether they split or stay together forever."

Adrian Pasdar busted for DUI


Adrian Pasdar -- the guy who plays the flying Senator Nathan Petrelli on "Heroes" -- was busted for DUI early this morning after cops say he was burning rubber and swerving all over a Los Angeles freeway.

TMZ has learned 44-year-old Pasdar was arrested at 2:59 AM after cops clocked him going more than 90 mph on the 405 Freeway in L.A. We're told cops also noticed Pasdar was "failing to maintain his lane."

Law enforcement sources tell us when cops approached Pasdar's ride, they detected the odor of alcohol -- and decided to give him a field sobriety test. Pasdar was eventually placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI.

Pasdar -- who is married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines -- was taken to a nearby jail, where he was booked and placed behind bars. He's listed at 5'10" and 175 lbs.

His bail was set at $15,000 -- we're told the bail amount was so high because the actor refused to take a breathalyzer.

House spin-off still alive?



The Michael Weston-fronted House spin-off may have been condemned, but Fox remains keen on expanding the franchise. Network president Kevin Reilly tells me the hit’s EPs, David Shore and Katie Jacobs, have a “standing offer” to create another series. “It could be a direct spin-off or a completely new show,” says Reilly. “Ideally, I would love David and Katie to have their own [two-hour block].”

Regarding the duo’s first stab at a House offshoot, the one that would’ve focused on Weston’s private detective, Lucas Douglas, Reilly says they “kind of stuck their toe in the water and just didn’t feel like it worked. The [character] worked [on] House, but [he] didn’t really work as [his] own thing.

“They have really high standards,” he adds. “These are not guys who commercially are going to chase something just to announce they have a spinoff and then figure out the show later on. They’re probably the most thorough producers… I’ve ever worked with.”

For her part, Jacobs is game to try again. “I would like to do a 9 o’clock show,” she says. “Maybe a spin-off or maybe just another show from the two of us.” (Shore is currently shepherding a remake of The Rockford Files for NBC.) One way or another, she’s resigned herself to the fact that a new show is “the only way I seem to be able to penetrate the 9 o’clock hour” now that House is firmly entrenched at 8. “As a producer, you would never pick Mondays at 8. But having said that, the network put [House] there, and it seems to be working so I think they’re smarter about these things than we are. So we’re probably going to stay at 8.”

NOOOOOOOO. A spin-off would be the worst thing ever. New show could be OK, but not a spin-off. Unless it involves an alternate ending to that House/Wilson proposal scene.

Beyoncé Leaves Rihanna Starstruck

It’s hard to believe that Rihanna attended her first major concert only six years ago, and now she’s performing at the same events with the stars she once looked up to.

The 21-year-old singer shared her first concert experience with iTunes. “My very first arena concert was Beyoncé/Alicia Keys/Missy Elliott [in 2004]. I think it was the ‘Ladies First’ tour,” she said.

Despite her bad seats, she will always remember that special night. “I was in like a nosebleed seat, but I was in tears. I could not believe that Beyoncé was right there, and Alicia Keys and Missy Elliott.”

Rihanna was in awe of the artists she now considers her peers. “I was a little starstruck. No, I was very starstruck, but it was so much fun. It was very inspiring and it motivated me so much.”

Muccino in talks to direct 'Passengers'



ROME -- Italo helmer with Hollywood credentials Gabriele Muccino is in advanced negotiations with Morgan Creek to board Keanu Reeves starrer "Passengers," a sci-fi romancer he described as "a love story set on a spaceship."

Muccino, whose English-language pics include Will Smith starrers "The Pursuit of Happyness" and "Seven Pounds," said he expected to start shooting "Passengers" this summer. Developed by Reeves and producer Stephen Hamel via their Company Films banner, "Passengers" has been greenlit by Morgan Creek, where James G. Robinson will produce.

Mid-budget sci-fier is penned by Jon Spaihts, who also penned Ridley Scott's untitled "Alien" prequel project.

"Passengers" is set in the future on a spacecraft making a centuries-long interstellar voyage to a new planet. Due to a computer glitch, a single passenger (Reeves) awakens from cryogenic sleep 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he, in turn, awakens a beautiful woman.

Muccino described the love interest of the character played by Reeves as being a "lesser-known" talent.

Muccino announced his plans for "Passengers" during the Rome press conference for his return to Italian-language filmmaking, "Kiss Me Again," a sequel of sorts to his hit "The Last Kiss" 10 years later. Produced by Domenico Procacci, "Kiss Me Again" will bow wide in Italy Friday on 600 screens via Medusa.

3.3 Million Watched 'Spartacus' Debut

Source: Juicy Flawless/UPI.com



ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 26 (UPI) — The first episode of the action drama “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” was watched by more than 3.3 million total U.S. viewers, Starz Entertainment said Tuesday.

The 3.3 million figure includes showings Friday night on Starz and Encore, as well as three additional weekend airings on pay cable channels with same-day DVR usage.

Figures from other Starz channels, additional DVR usage, starz.com viewership and on-demand/online previews with affiliates are expected to grow that figure well past 4 million total viewers, Starz said.

“This is the most successful premiere in the company’s history,” Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president of programming for Starz Entertainment, said in a statement. “We are very gratified to see that our excitement and faith in the series — already renewed for a second season — has been matched by initial demand.”

The show is produced by Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight, and stars Andy Whitfield, Lucy Lawless, John Hannah, Erin Cummings and Peter Mensah.

JWoww n00dz are being shopped around

Jersey Shore fans soon may be getting an eyeful of the "wow" in Jwoww!

RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that naked photos of Jwoww are being shopped to several media outlets.

Jwoww, real name Jenni Farley, has been one of the breakout stars on MTV's surprise hit Jersey Shore. She's making personal appearances and also has started a clothing line featuring cleavage-showing tops.

But the photos of Jwoww being shopped leave NOTHING to the imagination.

There are at least three photos of Jwoww, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. In one photo, she is facing the camera, topless. It's shot from the waist up and will certainly not disappoint her male fans.

A second photo shows Jwoww slightly turned, but with her back mainly toward the camera. She is wearing a skimpy wrap around her waist but that does not obscure the rear view! She's also wearing boots.

The third photo is a full length topless frontal shot, where Jwoww is again wearing a small wrap around her waist and boots. The pics are shot with moody lighting against a brownish background.

MPAA continues to have a stick up their ass about everything, including smoking

Follow-up of sorts to this post--


Along with buckets of money — more than $1.6 billion so far, worldwide — and a couple of Golden Globes, James Cameron’s “Avatar” has collected a smattering of controversy. Some of the hue and cry has involved matters of political allegory and theological implication, as pundits have divined that this globally popular blockbuster may represent a veiled ideological attack on America, capitalism, humanity, monotheism or all of the above. But the fiercest attack on “Avatar” has focused on what may seem, compared to such lofty matters, like a minor detail. Of all the corny lines and ready-made catchphrases in Mr. Cameron’s script, perhaps none has turned out to be so provocative as one uttered by Grace Augustine, the scientist played by Sigourney Weaver: “Where’s my damn cigarette?”

Collapse )

I despise the MPAA. They're so arbitrary and backwards. I love that it's fine if kids see horrible violence, but seeing smoking or sex/nudity will ruin their lives. Because they don't have parents whose responsibility it is to teach them the difference between fantasy and reality, of course.

Paul Shirley’s Letter to the people of Haiti

The Former NBA Player, who now plays professional basketball in Moscow, wrote up a blog about Haiti and the consequences of its earthquake, in which he pretty much blames Haitians for the dire state of the nation. Shirley states he has not donated to relief efforts in Haiti and "probably will not."

Below is Shirley’s letter…

Dear Haitians –

First of all, kudos on developing the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Your commitment to human rights, infrastructure, and birth control should be applauded.

As we prepare to assist you in this difficult time, a polite request: If it's possible, could you not re-build your island home in the image of its predecessor? Could you not resort to the creation of flimsy shanty- and shack-towns? And could some of you maybe use a condom once in a while?

Sincerely,

The Rest of the World

Taylor Swift Breaks Britney's Record

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Taylor Swift breaks the record for best first-week download sales by a female artist as "Today Was a Fairytale" shifts 325,000 as it set to debut at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, both to be released tomorrow morning. Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" will remain atop the Hot 100 for a sixth straight week.

"Fairytale," form the upcoming film "Valentine's Day," in which Swift co-stars, gives her the best Hot 100 start of her career and equals her highest peak, established with "You Belong with Me" this past August. Unlike "Fairytale's" quick ascent, "Belong" took 16 weeks to reach the runner-up slot.

Swift claims her first No. 1 on Digital Songs, having previously peaked at No. 2 with a pair of tracks; "You're Not Sorry" (November 2008) and "Jump Then Fall" (November 2009). The only higher sales frame posted by one of her titles occurred during Christmas week 2008 (Jan 10, 2009, chart date) when "Love Story" moved 360,000 downloads.

The prior mark for largest first-week download sales by a female artist belonged to Britney Spears, who moved 286,000 units of "Womanizer" on the chart dated October, 25, 2008. The biggest opening week for a track among all artists was established by Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" (465,000) in April 2009.

Tracks from the superstar Hope for Haiti Now broadcast sell a cumulative 334,000 in less than two days of availability, a sum sure to increase next week after a full seven days of sales.

Of the 19 available songs, "Stranded" by Jay-Z, Bono, The Edge & Rihanna (131,000) moves the most downloads, good enough for a No. 8 debut on Digital Songs and a No. 16 start on the Hot 100.

The only other track from the Haiti benefit to debut on the charts is "Hallelujah" by Justin Timberlake & Matt Morris featuring Charlie Sexton which sells 64,000 downloads and enters Hot Digital Songs at No. 24 and the Hot 100 at No. 48.

THIS JUST IN… from CBS Entertainment… JENNIFER LOPEZ TO GUEST STAR IN AN EPISODE OF “HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER” TO BE BROADCAST THIS MARCH

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 – Jennifer Lopez will guest star in an episode of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER to be broadcast this March on the CBS Television Network.

Lopez will play Anita Appleby, a no-nonsense author of self-help books that teach women how to train men into relationship machines through the power of denial. When Robin tells Anita how Barney acts toward women, she makes it her mission to “break” him.

TV Ratings Tuesday



American Idol was down 12% from last Tuesday, but its 9.0 adults 18-49 rating still easily carried Fox to the win for the night. Idol is down 4% overall in the adults 18-49 demo from its first 5 episodes last season. A new episode of Human Target fell 6% from last week’s pilot repeat that followed Idol. Target’s real test will come next week, when it begins its regular 8pm Wednesday timeslot. Note that there was an Idol overrun into the 9pm hour, the final ratings will likely have an increase for Idol and a decrease for Target.

Moved early to accommodate a Lost repeat at 9, Scrubs was down 8% to a 1.2 rating and Better Off Ted was down 17% to a 1.0 rating. With Lost returning next week, ABC’s Tuesday embarrassments are likely at an end.

After repeats last week, NCIS was down 5% from its last new episode to a 4.1 rating, but NCIS:LA bounced way back, up 27%, to a 3.8 rating, just about its season average. For the zealots, NCIS viewer gap with American Idol of just over 4 million was as close as it ever has been.

NBC’s Biggest Loser was down 7% to a 3.8 rating. And The Jay Leno Show likely missed its last chance to win a broadcast ratings hour. Its 2.0 rating was up 5% vs. last week, but still fell short of a Good Wife repeat.

In Late-Night Local People Meters Tuesday night:

* Conan O’Brien (0.9 rating in 18-49 in local people meters with an encore telecast) tied CBS’s Late Show (0.9 rating with an encore telecast) in Nielsen’s 25 local markets with People Meters.
* At 12:35 a.m., Jimmy Fallon (0.5 rating in 18-49 in local people meters with an encore telecast) tied CBS’s first-run Late Late Show (0.5 rating).

I watched White Collar. What did you watch, ONTD?

Who is actually King of the World?

So there has been a lot of talk lately about how Avatar has officially surpassed Titanic as the #1 grossing film worldwide. However, there is a lot to be said for the fact that people pay more to view a 3D film than they do to view a standard 35MM print. In addition, while the average cost for a movie ticket in the US is $7.35 (it's $11 in my area, but as soon as you step into the suburbs it's $9 so I think that's a fair estimate), to view an IMAX screening of Avatar, one pays anywhere from $17 - $20 which is double the average. In 1977 in the US when Star Wars was released, the average movie ticket cost $2.25 and in 1939 when both Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz were released a film cost $0.23 a ticket.

So where does Avatar actually rank when you adjust for inflation and take away all those surcharges and what films really rank supreme? You might be surprised.

Keep in mind that this list is just a domestic one for the US and doesn't reflect worldwide sales but it still paints a more accurate picture of the top films when taking inflation into account. Also note that a lot of these movies have gotten their numbers up through multiple release. Pre 1980's the only way you were going to see Gone With the Wind was through a rare presentation on television or when it was rereleased at your local theatre since VCRs did not exist yet. Disney is pretty notorious for this as well, before they started releasing their films on tape and DVD for a limited time before "putting them in the vault" they did the same for theatres, rereleasing a movie every 6 to 7 years so a new generation of young children could see it. Also note that I almost included the Top 51 Grossing Films, only because #51 is Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

HOLD THE FUCK UP? A CGI FAIRY MUSICAL? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR GODDAMN MIND?


George Lucas is tackling his first musical.

The untitled, top-secret CGI-animated film is in preproduction at Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch in Marin County.

The project marks a rare foray outside the “Star Wars” universe for Lucas who, while not directing a movie since “Revenge of the Sith” in 2005, is putting the finishing touches on “Red Tails,” the adventure movie that tells the World War II story of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black pilots. Lucas wrote the screenplay for “Tails” and is exec producing.

Kevin Munroe is directing the CGI film, which is expected to feature music from a variety of sources. Munroe hails from the animated world and made his directorial debut in 2007 with the fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, “TMNT.” He recently wrapped production on his live-action debut, the adaptation of the “Dead of Night” comic that stars Brandon Routh and Taye Diggs.

David Berenbaum, who wrote the Will Ferrell comedy “Elf” and children’s fantasy “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” penned the screenplay. Plot details are locked tighter than the plans for the Death Star, but one element known is that the script features fairies.

It is not known whether Berenbaum is working from a story by Lucas, who tends to originate much of Lucasfilm’s intellectual property.

A Lucasfilm spokesperson said it was too early to comment on the details of the project.

Munroe is repped by ICM, Berenbaum by WME.

Ask Scorsese and DiCaprio a question!




Paramount has put a nice twist on Friday's press junket for Martin Scorsese's forthcoming "Shutter Island." The studio is inviting Twitter users to submit questions to Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio using the #AskLeo and #AskScorsese hash tags. The director and star will each answer five questions, and next week, the selected queries will be retweeted with a link to a video of them answering the question, and a shoutout to the person who asked it. Not bad. While we hope they get some real questions, this is a press junket, and we won't be surprised if its softball stuff they're given to answer. (...)

Steven Tyler continues to do odd things, not be in Aerosmith.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Brand Tyler karaoke tour of Southern California continued this weekend as Steven Tyler sang two Aerosmith songs over the loudspeaker of a Home Depot in Rancho Mirage, California. TMZ was the first to report Tyler’s impromptu hardware store performance, and a Home Depot customer service rep confirmed to Rolling Stone that Tyler’s serenade did in fact take place at the Rancho Mirage location. “It’s true. It’s not phony,” the rep said when Rolling Stone asked about the seemingly incredible reports.

According to TMZ, Tyler employed the Home Depot loudspeaker system, which is usually used for price checks or calls for assistance, to sing Aerosmith classics like “Dude Looks Like a Lady” and “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” As if this story couldn’t get more shocking, Tyler also reportedly started taking hits off a helium tank and sang his karaoke with a Chipmunked voice. The frontman also signed autographs for all those unsuspecting rock fans who initially just went to the Home Depot to buy plywood and paint.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Tyler also attended a Palm Springs, California pub’s karaoke night last week, stepping up to the microphone to rescue Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” after two patrons were booed off the stage following a disastrous first verse. So what’s the next odd stage for Tyler? A drive-thru window at the Jack in the Box? Halftime at a high school basketball game? Stick with Rolling Stone for all your late-breaking Tyler karaoke news. Tyler is reportedly enrolled at a rehab clinic in California, where the frontman is treating an addiction to pain killers.

Daren Kagasoff fills out a white pair of briefs from Calvin Klein Underwear in this sexy new spread for Vman magazine #17, which hits newsstands TOMORROW (January 28)!

The 22-year-old actor, who stars on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, posed shirtless for famed photographer Hedi Slimane for Vman’s “How to Keep It Cool” story. Check out what Daren had to share:

On celebs he’d like to be compared to: “Leonardo DiCaprio and Emile Hirsch. With Leo, it’s beyond the fact that he is a moneymaking machine. He is really conscious about his material and takes every character he plays to a place the writers probably never anticipated. Emile Hirsch is just so respectable. He works for the art of it and that kind of passion transcends the screen.”

On new projects he’d like to do:
“I love TV but I would also love to do movies, to play roles that will challenge me, roles people don’t expect me to play. I also want to do theater, probably something off Broadway.”

On whether he prefers boxers or briefs: “Briefs.”

next alexandra burke single is


Alexandra Burke will reportedly release 'The Silence' as her next single.

The ballad, which is taken from her chart-topping debut album Overcome, has been added to the post-March release schedule.

Speaking to DS recently, Burke said that she hoped the track would become a single.

"Obviously I put my opinions out there, but I leave it to those who know best and Simon [Cowell] has the final say," she said.

"I'd love to release the majority of my songs as singles - I have like eight in my head - but I doubt very much that's going to happen!"

The 21-year-old reached number one with first two singles 'Hallelujah' and 'Bad Boys'. New record 'Broken Heels' is currently at eight in the Top 40.

Burke is scheduled to release a remastered version of Overcome in the US later this year.

well there's no reason to watch the Grammys now.



Looks like Rihanna won’t be getting a Grammy do-over.

Despite rumors that she’d perform at this year’s awards show, Rihanna told Carson Daly on his Amp Radio show today (January 27) that she’ll attend, but won’t be hitting the stage. “We messed their show up pretty bad last year,” she said. “They might be a little mad at me.”

Rihanna is, of course, referring to the Grammy morning brawl with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown that caused both of them to miss their scheduled performances, and left the Grammy producers scrambling at the last minute to fill the time.

No biggie to Rihanna, though. She’ll still go into the show nominated twice for “Run This Town,” her collaboration with Jay-Z and Kanye West. They’ll vie for the Best Rap/Sung Category (the same category that earned Rihanna her first Grammy for “Umbrella”) and Best Rap Song.

Elizabeth and John Edwards Legally Separate


Disgraced former presidential contender John Edwards and his wife have reportedly legally separated after he admitted he is the father of a baby girl whose mom he repeatedly bedded during his 2008 White House run according to ABC News and People Magazine.

After spending Christmas together with their three kids, Edwards and his wife quietly parted ways.

"[Elizabeth] said, 'I've had it. I can't do this. I want my life back," Elizabeth Edwards' sister, Nancy Anania, said to People.

"A long marriage is a tough habit to break, and when you throw in incurable cancer and young children, it makes you waver," Anania said. "But I hear peace in her voice that i haven't heard in a long time."

The couple have three children, Cate, 27; Emma Claire, 11; and Jack, 9.

People, however, reported that Elizabeth, 60, who is still undergoing treatment for breast cancer, has had divorce papers ready for nearly a year and had not yet filed the paperwork.

Elizabeth even gave her husband's baby Christmas presents.

"She gave it a lot of thought, wrapped up a bunch of Christmas presents, took them to the baby and was so pleased when Quinn made a beeline to the toy carriage and doll," Anania told People. "She even said to Quinn, 'Go stand next to Daddy.'"

The revelations of the couple's separation come as a former aide to John Edwards says in a new book that the former North Carolina senator told him he thought about leaving his wife -- but also cited his love for her as a reason to keep details of an affair hidden.

The Wall Street Journal reported on its Web site that Andrew Young claims Edwards asked him to go into hiding with Edwards' mistress because of his wife's health.

Young wrote that Edwards concluded "that if I helped him, I would make Mrs. Edwards' dying days a bit easier. 'I know you're mad at her, Andrew, but I love her. I can't let her die knowing this.'"

iPad Debuts!



SAN FRANCISCO – Apple Inc. will sell the newly unveiled tablet-style iPad starting at $499, a price tag far below the $1,000 that some analysts were expecting.

The iPad, which is larger in size but similar in design to Apple's popular iPhone, was billed by CEO Steve Jobs on Wednesday as "so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone."

Jobs, 54, a survivor of pancreatic cancer who got a liver transplant during a 5 1/2-month medical leave last year, looked thin as he introduced the highly anticipated gadget.

The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen, is a half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. The basic iPad models will cost $499, $599 and $699, depending on the storage size.

All models have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity built in. Jobs said the device has a battery that lasts 10 hours and can sit for a month on standby without needing a charge.

Apple will also sell a version with pay-as-you-go data plans from AT&T in the U.S. Two tiers of data plan will be available without contracts: $14.99 per month for 250 megabytes of data, or $29.99 for unlimited data usage.

Those 3G models will cost more — $629, $729 and $829, depending on the amount of memory. The Wi-Fi only version will be available worldwide in March, and the 3G version in April. International cellular data details have not yet been announced.

Irish radio station kills Lady Gaga in new ad



Those kooky, punny, violent Irish! They love bloodshed. But they don't love Lady Gaga. The pop priestess gets gruesomely murdered in a back alley in one of iRadio's new print ads from ad agency Bloom in Dublin. The confusing headline, "Britney Spears Lady Gaga," is meant to be read as an action—i.e., Britney spears Lady Gaga. The stuff's not so much shocking or cheeky as grimly distasteful, and offers no compelling reason to tune in. (Adding to the confusion, you have to assume these are artists that iRadio doesn't play.) And anyway, why leave Britney alive? She might make another album, and no one wants that.

Zelda Rubinstein, who played psychic in 'Poltergeist,' dies at 76

Zelda Rubinstein, the diminutive character actress with the childlike voice who was best known as the psychic called in to rid a suburban home of demonic forces in the 1982 horror movie "Poltergeist," has died. She was 76.

Rubinstein, who also appeared as the mother figure in a high-profile mid-1980s public awareness campaign in Los Angeles aimed at stopping the spread of AIDS, died today of natural causes at Barlow Respiratory Hospital in Los Angeles, said Eric Stevens, her agent.

Rubinstein was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center about two months ago after suffering a mild heart attack, Stevens said. "She had ongoing health issues and unfortunately they finally overtook her," he said.

A medical lab technician before launching her acting career in her 40s, the 4-foot-3 Rubinstein made her film debut as one of the little people in the 1981 Chevy Chase comedy "Under the Rainbow."

Among her other credits are the movies "Frances," "Sixteen Candles," "Teen Witch," "Anguish" and "Southland Tales" and the TV series "Picket Fences" on which she was a regular.

But Rubinstein made her biggest impact as Tangina in director Tobe Hooper's “Poltergeist,” co-written by Steven Spielberg, who also served as a producer.

"Do y'all mind hanging back? You're jamming my frequencies," Rubinstein's Tangina says as she tours the house after the young daughter has been sucked into a blinding white light in her bedroom closet and disappeared.

The role was written specifically for a little person.

"I thought it would be neat to show that someone's size had nothing to do with her psychic powers," Spielberg told The Times in 1982. "Good things can come in small packages, and that's certainly true of Zelda."

Film critics agreed.

Christina Milian Sued Over Dog Attack



She is due with her first child next month and, unfortunately, Christina Milian has some other drama to deal with first.

The singer’s 81-year-old neighbor is suing her after he was brutally attacked by Milian’s dog in 2008.

According to Perez Hilton, Leo Skolion was viciously attacked by the pup when he went to Milian’s home to talk to Christina about fixing a gate between their homes that had been damaged due to “flooding problems.”

Apparently the dog escaped and bit a “huge chunk” out of the neighbor’s arm which lead to 19 stitches and “9 months of rehabilitation”, and Skolion is still undergoing psychiatric help for “fear and depression.”

David Copperfield isn't a rapist after all



Despite the fact he looks exactly like one and mastered the art of sorcery, David Copperfield is not a rapist and now the woman who accused of him sexual assault on his private island has been arrested for prostitution and pretty much pulling the exact same scheme on another man. TMZ reports:

Authorities say Carroll met the man in a bar and went to his hotel room. As they began having sex she allegedly told him, "Put $2,000 in my purse and you can have it all." The man says when he refused to fork over the money, she told police he had forced himself upon her.

Shortly after making the report, she refused to cooperate, claiming she had another case going (Copperfield) and felt the new claim would "tarnish the other case."

Authorities didn't believe her and charged her with filing a false police report and prostitution.


At this point, The Superficial would like to apologize to David Copperfield for making all those jokes about him being a rapist Bond villain. I should've gone with my instincts and assumed the woman was lying which is simply their nature. However, in my defense, David Copperfield is creepy and has assistants draw him a map of potential dates in the audience so he can rape them on a mystical island buy them Italian dinners.

Xavi Stands Up For Messi Over Ronaldo Appeal Evidence

MADRID (Reuters) - Barcelona midfielder Xavi has stood up for his team mate Lionel Messi after Real Madrid used video of the Argentine forward to try and get a Cristiano Ronaldo red card rescinded.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red during Sunday's 2-0 win over Malaga after catching defender Patrick Mtiliga with a flailing arm and breaking his nose.

As part of their appeal against the card, Real presented evidence to the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) which included video of an incident when Messi used his arms to shake off a Sevilla opponent who was holding him back.

Messi was awarded a free kick and the RFEF ruled that as the referee had not mentioned the incident in his match report it was not relevant and, in any case, no injury had been caused.

Audiences and comic fans who feared that Edward Norton burned his bridges with Marvel, after the actor clashed with the studio over the final edit of The Incredible Hulk, may be surprised to hear that Norton is still Marvel's go-to guy for the role of Dr. Bruce Banner.

On the subject of the not-too-distant Avengers film, which sees Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor join forces to form a team, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige told SFX Magazine that the Hulk would indeed be one of the teammates. On Norton returning to the role: "It's certainly our intention to use the same actors from film to film where we can."

Yay! The Incredible Hulk was pretty good, IMO. What other characters should make an appearance?

Ashlee: I "Don't Get" Why People Care About Jessica's Weight

One person who's not keeping close tabs on Jessica Simpson's weight ups and downs: her little sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.

During a Wednesday appearance at the Hershey's Store in Manhattan's Times Square, Simpson-Wentz, 25, shrugged when asked if folks are too hard on her big sister's body. "I just don’t get why it’s such a topic," she told UsMagazine.com.

At a Jan. 15 press conference for her VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty, Jessica, 29, admitted "I haven't always had an inner confidence, and I haven't always looked at my reflection and loved it."

Simpson-Wentz also demurred on the topic of Jessica's new friend Billy Corgan. "Oh gosh," she said. "I don't think I'm going to go there right now." Jessica and Corgan, 42, went on six dates before calling off the romance earlier this month. ("They're working on being friends," a pal says. "Jessica is proving to herself that she can be pals with a guy she used to date.")

Married to rocker Pete Wentz with their baby boy Bronx, 14 months, Simpson-Wentz is optimistic for Jessica's romantic future, despite her rocky past with the likes of ex-husband Nick Lachey, wacky musician John Mayer and football star Tony Romo. "She's my sister!" Simpson-Wentz said. "I want her to just be really happy."

Joe Jonas Learns to Be Ruthless on American Idol

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Joe Jonas says he had a great time as a guest judge on American Idol — once he learned to be candid with the contestants about their performances.

“[I was] a little nervous at the start because I was kind of afraid I was going to hurt people’s feelings,” the 20-year-old Jonas Brother told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning. “You have to really be honest. At first, you feel bad, because you see these people come through, and they just want it really bad. The first few, I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re great.’ Towards like five [people] in, you have to be like, ‘I’m sorry, no. This isn’t for you.’”

Jonas, whose Idol episode airs Wednesday, said he saw plenty of talent at the Dallas auditions, though some contestants seemed best suited to specific styles that lack broader appeal. But there may have been a diamond in the rough. “There were a couple of people that walked through the audition room whose voices were just so different. I’d never heard anything like it,” he said. “And I was like, ‘Yeah, this guy could totally win it.’ “

And since Jonas and his brothers have roots in the area, Joe added, “I would be really proud if somebody from Texas wins.”

11 most scandalous "Saved By The Bell" revelations in Screech's book




This weekend, I read Dustin "Screech" Diamond's entire autobiography, "Behind the Bell". And I might be the only person who's ever done that.

Literally, the only person. I'm fairly sure no editor actually read it cover-to-cover; on page four we get the sentence "Fuck fame. Allow me to tear down your allusions"... and that sets off a book just riddled with spelling errors, punctuation errors, repeated references to craft services as Kraft services and weird line breaks. On two separate occasions, entire paragraphs are actually repeated.

But you're not reading this for me to call out Dustin Diamond's copy editor. Nor was I reading his book to look for such errors. (I just notice them because I'm a precocious-in-a-bad-way son of an English teacher.) No... we all want to know the unbelievable "Saved by the Bell" sex scandals that he witnessed first hand. (Or, as he disclaims in the prologue, some of them are "things [he] heard from reliable sources.)

And I've got 'em for you.

Christina Aguilera and Muhammad Ali Team Up - FULL PSA


On Tuesday we brought you behind the scenes as sports icon and global humanitarian Muhammad Ali and multi-Grammy winner Christina Aguilera filmed a new Haiti relief effort PSA. Now we show you the final product!

Appearing together in a new public service announcement, the duo are teaming up to raise funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Haitian relief effort. Donations will go directly to WFP's efforts to get food to survivors of Haiti's devastating earthquake.

The PSA urges viewers to donate $5 by texting FRIENDS to 90999 or visit www.fromhungertohope.com. Your donation of $5 will feed 20 hungry children in the earthquake-ravaged country, according to the WFP.

Aguilera is also the spokesperson for Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief, the world's largest private-sector, hunger-relief effort that is underwriting the PSA.

"I'm devastated by the toll that the earthquake has taken, and as a mom, I am especially heartbroken by the children and families affected," Aguilera said. "My goal for the PSA is to inspire as many people as possible to donate to the World Food Programme so they can continue to feed the survivors in Haiti and move them from hunger to hope."

"The earthquake and the aftershocks in Haiti are among the worst tragedies of our lifetime," Muhammad Ali said of the tragedy. "I urge people from around the world to open their hearts and give anything they can to help the World Food Programme's relief efforts in Haiti."

At long last, movie stardom shines on Christoph Waltz

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

LOS ANGELES — Once upon a time, in Berlin, there lived a middle-aged Austrian actor named Christoph Waltz who for the past 30 years had toiled mostly in the middlebrow world of German television.

He worked steadily, often joylessly, and paid the bills.

And then, through a German casting director, he met motor-mouthed American director Quentin Tarantino, who at the time was on a quest to find someone conversant in English, Italian, French and German to play the devilish Nazi Hans Landa in his film Inglourious Basterds. Up till then, he had struck out.

Tarantino says he wrote a "very specific character. I looked at a lot of people, and (Waltz) was the only person who could take that character on the page and put him on the screen. It's a case of the casting process working at its best. He came in. I didn't know who he was. I heard he's done some miniseries. He came in and did his audition, and in his first reading, blew me away."

future oscar winner Sandra Bullock Stays Sunny in Rainy LA



Sandra Bullock made a stop in LA yesterday to pick up flowers during an afternoon out with her stepdaughter Sunny James. The girls looked happy to pick up a few bouquets despite their dash through the rain, though there was a little trouble elsewhere with the James family since Jesse's beloved dog CinnaBun is missing. It's a rare down point in what's shaping up to be Sandra Bullock's year — she's already snagged both a Golden Globe and SAG Award for her work in The Blind Side. Sandra was also just ranked among the most beloved movie stars in the country, coming in as the 4th favorite of all actors and the top female star above Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Jennifer Aniston Donates $500,000 to Haiti Relief Efforts


Jennifer Aniston Donates $500,000 To Haiti Relief




The actress' money will go to three charities helping the victims of the earthquake.




Jennifer Aniston is the latest celebrity to donate a huge amount of money for Haiti's recovery. The star has reportedly given $500,000 to relief efforts currently under way in the nation after a destructive earthquake left the area in and around the nation's capital of Port-au-Prince in a state of chaos.
 

According to E! Online, the "Friends" star gave $500,000 to Doctors Without Borders, Partners in Health and AmeriCares. Aniston, who joins a number of Hollywood's biggest names who have already given to the cause, was a participant in last Friday's "Hope for Haiti" telethon. The benefit drew 83 million viewers and a gross average audience of more than 24 million viewers in the United States, and it has raised more than $61 million in donations from the general public to date.
 

George Clooney, who helped to organize "Hope for Haiti Now," has given $1 million to relief for victims, as have Sandra Bullock, Leonard DiCaprio, and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (joint donation). Gisele Bundchen donated $1.5 million to the cause, and Madonna donated $250,000.

Barfa leaves Summer Bay!



TROUBLED soap star Jodi Gordon is quitting Home and Away.

With her life in the past three years often resembling a script from a TV drama, Gordon has decided to walk away from the soap on which she made her name playing Martha McKenzie.

She will film her final scenes for the long-running Channel Seven show at the end of next month.

Insiders say her decision to leave the series after five years has not come as a surprise, although producers and Seven executives are understood to have urged her to stick with the soap because of the popularity of her character.

Her decision to leave the family drama comes seven months after her life was tipped upside down when she went off the rails on a massive booze-fuelled bender and was reported to Sydney police as a missing person by her then boyfriend, Ryan Stokes.

Any Home & Away fans, ONTD? I'm pretty much hooked on it, and as much as I didn't like Martha, it is going to be weird without her. She's a huge part of the show right now.

ONTD's inappropriate uncle remains awesome; not dead



Contrary to the image presented by his films, Mel Brooks is not a meshuggeneh.

College football superstar Tim Tebow defended a Super Bowl commercial Focus on the Family has filmed that is generating national attention. Tebow confirmed the commercial will focus on pro-life values and tell the story of how his mother decided against an abortion.

After the Senior Bowl practice on Wednesday, Tebow admitted he was surprised at the growing attention the Super Bowl commercial is receiving.

“I definitely didn't think it would have this much hype,” Tebow said, according to an Orlando Sentinel report. “It’s something I believe in and I'll stand up for.”

Hoe Shit Can Completely Ruin A Man



This is going to sound like a Tyler Perry stage play but stick with me.

City High’s Robbie Pardlo’s world was shattered when then girlfriend Claudette Ortiz left him and started a romantic relationship with fellow group member Ryan Toby before the group disbanded in 2003. The couple tied the knot a year later and continued to pursue careers in entertainment while Pardlo quietly made the retreat back to his parents’ house, becoming an alcoholic in the process. His rise and fall was the subject of last night’s episode of Intervention.

British dude spews word vomit about the BRITS, Macca's oldness and contrived Coldplay



Former Creation Records chief Alan McGee has called for the BRIT Awards to be scrapped.

In an interview, the Scottish music mogul blasted the awards questioning the way they are run.

"They should get rid of the Brits," McGee told The Daily Record. "[They should] start again with 20 music journalists who actually care about music getting together, instead of a bunch of self-interested record company people who just vote for their own acts."

Slamming some of this year's nominees in the process, McGee blasted Coldplay's nomination for 'Best Album Of The Last 30 Years', for 2002's 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head'.

"Coldplay are a dilution of a dilution of a dilution," he commented. "Chris Martin makes me want to eat someone else's earwax rather than listen to his records."

McGee, who discovered bands such as Oasis, Primal Scream and Glasvegas, also found time to take a shot at former Beatle Paul McCartney.

"McCartney should retire," he insisted. "John Lennon is probably firing bullets from another dimension as we speak."

He added: "Music should be like football. Once you turn 40, you should become a manager or get lost. It's for kids. You lose perspective. You don't have 66-year-old football players. There's a reason for that."

Meanwhile, Upside Down, a film documenting the 16 year history of Creation Records, will be released this spring.

For those of you who don't know who this dude is, he discovered many (mostly British) acts and even managed the best band of all time (behind the Beatles) The Libertines. He retired from managing last year.

On a somewhat related note, anyone feel the same way about the Grammys?

Taylor Lautner has had ENOUGH of dating girls.

Teen heartthrob Taylor Lautner wants to date someone who can just be themselves.

Twilight star Taylor Lautner — who split from singer Taylor Swift — has had enough of dating girls who are preoccupied with themselves and instead is opting for the single life for a while.

“I just want someone who can be themselves. Not put on a show,” said Taylor. “It is as simple as that. I’m not dating anyone right now.”


Following Lautner’s split from Swift, it was claimed the two Taylors decided to call time their short-lived, highly-publicized romance after a series of fights over food.

“Unlike Lautner, Swift is anti-diet. Her favorite restaurant is the Cracker Barrel near her family’s Henderson, Tenn., home,” a source said in December.

“Her favorite dish is their biscuits and gravy — something Lautner wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole!

“Lautner is very athletic and health-conscious, so he eats mostly low-fat protein like skinless chicken breasts, egg whites and vegetables and fruits.

“But Swift loves cheeseburgers and has a major sweet tooth.

“Picking restaurants for date nights has turned into a huge headache and always leads to a squabble.

“The only food option they can agree on is sushi.”

Zac Efron sets up two new projects; Continues to Be Sexy- News at 11



From DLH:

The list of young actors who transition to adult leading men isn’t that long... Tom Cruise, Sean Penn, Christian Bale, etc. Zac Efron is hoping to make that transition so he’s linked himself to a pair of projects he hopes will give him the chance to broaden his range. One of them would be his first action turn, in a Ludlum-esque spy thriller. Efron has a just made a deal at Universal for Fire, an adaptation of a graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis that was published by Image Comics.

...

Efron has made a separate deal at Warner Bros to star in a Back To The Future-like film that melds two projects. One’s a pitch from writers Tim Calpin and Kevin Jakubowski, and the other is a WB project called Algorithm that the studio was already developing as a directing vehicle for Nick Stoller, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall director who just wrapped Get Him To The Greek. Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff are producing and Alan Riche is exec producer along with Efron and Barrett.


LOL I don't know how close to Back to the Future they'll really go, but if they need a DeLorean Zac's got one they can use:

Avatar 2 Crew Already Thinking Of Ways To Top The First One

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Is it true James Cameron is already hiring crew-members for Avatar 2? We're not sure, but there are definitely discussions, says one insider. And one thing's for sure: the next movie will have to do something to top the first.

We were talking to Robert Stromberg, production designer on Avatar, for our third giant feature about the movie's design, which is coming soon. Stromberg couldn't say much about the movie's sequel, except to say there have definitely been "rumblings" about the second movie. "We've chatted about certain things," says Stromberg. "I'm going to see Jim [Cameron] next Tuesday. I'm sure we're going to talk about it." And he echoes what others have said: the hard part was designing the technology in the first place to make Pandora and the motion-capture characters real. Now that those elements are in place, a sequel will go much faster.

Adds Stromberg:

Jim and I, we've talked about the design of new areas and so on, but I think trying to... I think we did a pretty good job of coming up with something new, so now we have to think about topping that, and that's going to take some head scratching.

Muse plan 'Nirvana inspired' tour documentary

Bassist Chris Wolstenholme wants to make something 'like Nirvana's Live! Tonight! Sold Out!'

Muse have announced plans to make a Nirvana inspired tour documentary.

The band, who have released various live DVDs throughout their career - including 2005's Absolution Tour and 2008's H.A.A.R.P. - have revealed they would like to make something a bit different, reports BBC 6 Music.

"We'd like to something a little bit more along the lines of a touring documentary as opposed to just a live gig this time," bassist Chris Wolstenholme told Australia's Triple J radio station.

Camilla Belle and Fernando Verdasco, together again?



Last year, during the tournament in Indian Wells, California, Fernando Verdasco, who after three months ended his relationship with tennis player Ana Ivanovic, was pictured hugging Camilla Belle after a romantic dinner. It was assumed that there was more than a friendship.

Later, the actress was linked with Joe Jonas, a relationship that soon after announced, it ended.

It is not known whether Camilla was in a relationship with the Spanish tennis player, or if there was only a fleeting romance, but the fact is that now the actress again was cheering on Verdasco from the sidelines, this time at the Australia Open, where she seems to not have brought him much luck because he was eliminated by the Russian, Nikolay Davydenko.

With sunglasses and a big smile on her face, Camilla encouraged the Spaniard and failed to go unnoticed on the steps of Melbourne.
