Declan on Neighbours recast



James Sorensen, who currently plays Declan in the soap, has decided to leave the show to pursue a career outside of television.

A spokesperson for Five has now revealed that Erin Mullally, 20, will step into the role when Sorensen leaves.

She added: "As the character of Declan is extremely popular, and with some sensational storylines planned, it was decided that the character would be recast."

Mullally will first appear as Declan on UK screens this summer.

Scout Taylor-Compton blabs about 'Halloween 3D'



So the actress who portrays Lita Ford in 'The Runaways,' and also as Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's Halloween movies blabbed via stickam about the upcoming 3D sequel to the Halloween remake films: "They called me up and they said, 'So we're gonna do H3 in two months, we don't really know our director and we don't have a script'," she says. "I said 'No' because I felt like they were rushing it and feel like they were just gonna make it suck." She continues, "I honestly think it needs to stop. But if its a great script I definitely wanna do it...but Im definitely not gonna do a movie that sucks."




Personally, I didn't dislike Rob Zombie's Halloween II, but I do feel it was weird and do not see how it can continue, especially since the endings of the Theatrical and Director's Cut are so different (and without Danielle Harris?).

YouTube Launches "Response to Pandora and Last.fm"

DISCO
Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic


On January 20, YouTube launched its new Musical Discovery Project, "Disco" for short, which allows viewers to create playlists of videos currently out by favorite and recommended artists. The service, which Rolling Stone calls YouTube's "response to Pandora and last.fm," is similar to the Genius service offered on iTunes.

A search for U2 on Disco, for example, produces a playlist of videos by U2 as well as R.E.M., The Police, The Alarm, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Simple Minds. The playlist can then be tinkered with - tracks can be deleted, other tracks can be added from several lists, and the entire playlist can be saved to create a "mixtape."

The Music Discovery Project takes advantage of the newly lauched Vevo, YouTube's partnership with record labels that has officially sanctioned many of its music videos.

Kristen Bell is engaged to Dax Shephard



Kristen Bell Is Engaged to Dax Shepard!

Kristen Bell is engaged to Dax Shepard, her rep confirms to UsMagazine.com exclusively.

Shepard, 35, proposed over the holidays, a source tells Us.

Bell, 29, debuted her ring on the red carpet of the Grammys Sunday night.

The couple first stepped out publicly in January 2008.

Bell detailed her perfect date night with Shepard in the November issue of Women's Health.

"There is almost nothing, barring a natural disaster, that I would let eat into my time at home, playing Scrabble with Dax or talking to my girlfriends," she said.

She joked that they were competitive while filming romantic comedy When in Rome, currently in theaters.

"We were trying to one-up each other," she said. "That's what we do at home, too. It's like, 'Wait – watch me do this funny bit.' 'No, watch me do this funny bit!."

The secret to their relationship?

"I've learned the necessity for healthy communication. How important it is to talk about your deepest, darkest fears and feelings," she says. "Your partner should hear your most embarrassing insecurities, because once you say them out loud, you've created a safe zone."

And "a snuggle party can fix anything -- it's true," she added.

Ginnifer Goodwin might feel husband-less in Big Love at the moment, but she might have found love elsewhere in Alcon Entertainment's romancer, Something Borrowed.

Based on Emily Giffin's debut novel of the same name, Something Borrowed will have Goodwin play a Manhattan attorney who becomes involved with her best friend's fiance following her 30th birthday. Luke Greenfield is directing off a script by Jennie Urman.

The project is being fasttracked for a shoot in the spring and summer.

As I mentioned, Goodwin can currently be seen in HBO's fourth season of Big Love.

Michael Jackson's Kids Will Record "We Are the World"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

From the PopEater.com blog by Rob Shuter:

"Following their appearance at the Grammy Awards, sources tell me Michael Jackson's two oldest children -- Prince Michael and Paris -- want to be included in Monday's re-recording of 'We Are The World,' the proceeds of which will benefit Haiti. 'Prince Michael and Paris know that helping others was as important to their daddy as music. That is why they really want to be part of the re-recording of this extraordinary song,' a friend of Michael's tells me.

"It's still unclear if their voices will be blended in with the chorus of celebrities or if they will make get to sing a solo line or two. I, for one, can't think of any singer alive that would be more powerful than Prince Michael or little Paris singing the lyrics their daddy wrote twenty five years ago."

Paging Diego Luna: Gael Garcia Bernal is [rumored to be] a free man







Gael García Bernal not only separated from Dolores Fonzi and locked in a standoff with Argentine actress for custody of her young son Lazarus, but now he is asking for a DNA test on the child because he has doubts about his paternity.

Sources close to the Mexican actor Garcia Bernal say is very sad because the relationship with Fonzi did not progress, because after two years of cohabitation seems that love is over. Press reports that Argentine Fonzi returned to her native Argentina with son Lazarus and the little that there was no chance of returning to Europe to resume her life with the actor.

A separation rumors were added reports that the two artists could start legal proceedings for custody of his son Lazarus. However, it is now said on good authority that the actor has asked Fonzi DNA testing of his son, because he doubted whether the father.

According to comments from a celebrity magazine, Argentine actress may have had other relationships at the time she became pregnant. In fact, it was mentioned that Luis Ortega, son of singer Palito Ortega, one of the boyfriends who frequented Fonzi that time [LOL, it's a bad translation but I'm not fixing it because it's hilarious]. He added that Garcia Bernal was aware of that fact, but believed the word of the actress who had indicated that he was the father of the child in her womb.

Now it remains to be seen what will happen, because little Lazarus might be in the midst of great controversy.

'The Losers' Aren't Worried About 'The A-Team'



"The Losers" are on a mission -- and don't even think about calling them "The B-Team."

The new commando adventure opens on April 9, two months before that other military-ops movie, "The A-Team," which has a somewhat similar plot: An elite team is sent on suicide missions but survive and return to go after their duplicitous superiors. But "The Losers" director Sylvain White says that his action film marches to its own drummer.

White, whose profile surged with "Stomp the Yard," said the "Losers" script by Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt presented him with a chance to make a movie that had international action and tension but also a lighter sense of itself than the Jason Bourne and most recent James Bond films. The script, as comics fans already know, adapts the Vertigo series by Andy Diggle and Jock, who themselves reinvented a very different DC Comics franchise of the 1970s that was set in WWII.

Jay-Z Defends Beyoncé at Pre-Grammy Bash



Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Jay-Z making a rather fashionably late appearance at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel last night.

Jay, who was still sporting Ray-Ban sunglasses around 9:30 p.m., arrived with his entourage in tow, which consisted of two model-looking babes as well.

So where was Beyoncé?

Despite the fact that B didn't make any fashionable appearance of sorts, don't think Jay forgot about his lady!

Clive was onstage, paying tribute to a gal in the audience with "five decades" of No. 1 hits. A girl next to Jay-Z got superexcited at hearing that, turned to him and said, "OMG...it's Beyoncé! Beyoncé is here!"

J.Z.'s crew started cracking up as B's hubby turned to her and replied:

"Five decades? Five decades? My girl ain't that old!"


Of course, the real recipient of Clive's affection was Barbra Streisand, who was being honored at last night's event.Collapse )

Eminem post from me to you!


First a story about Em being a sweetheart :D

Eminem Told Drake 'Don't Get Nervous' About Grammy Performance

'He gave me that reassurance,' Drake says of Eminem's pre-show pep talk.

"I think it's a great night for hip-hop," Drake said at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 31). "Just that medium being acknowledged at all."

The 23-year-old Canadian, himself acknowledged with two nominations, also had a great night — he got to close the show with the first-ever live performance of "Forever," joining Lil Wayne and Eminem on the Grammy stage. And while Drake is certainly used to rocking stages with his Young Money boss Weezy, he got some surprising encouragement from Slim Shady during rehearsals.

"Em gave me probably one of the best speeches ... not really a speech, but ... he gave me that reassurance," Drake said on the red carpet. "He was like, 'Man, anytime you need to look over at me, don't get nervous. Just look over at me, man, and I'll give it back to you. Everything will be all right. Don't be nervous.' For him to say that to me — I feel like that was an important moment. It was nice."

One glaring omission from "Forever," though, was the appearance of Kanye West. The Louis Vuitton Don is apparently back in the lab.

"I think 'Ye's in a good creative space right now," Drizzy said of his absence. "I think he's trying to create that next album the world needs. I know he's working very hard somewhere."

During the medley, Lil Wayne and Eminem also performed "Drop the World" from Wayne's Rebirth album, in stores Tuesday.

Lady Gaga Heckled for Wacky Grammy Dress




Lady Gaga didn't lose her over-the-top fashion sense at Sunday's Grammys.

Keeping a stern face, the 23-year-old singer walked the red carpet in a silk orb-like Giorgio Armani Prive dress.

"We hear Lady Gaga’s music everywhere we go," Armani said in a statement to UsMagazine.com. "It is like a soundtrack of our times. In addition to her formidable songwriting skills, she is a modern fashion phenomenon. I am delighted to be creating these outfits on such an important night for her, the Grammys, and I wish her the best of luck."

Gaga was thrilled with the look.

"I am honored to be wearing Armani this evening," she said in a statement to Us. "The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist. Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team."

Her outfit left everyone speechless.

"I thought, Is that Lady Gaga or is it somebody who wants us to think they're Lady Gaga?" remarked E!'s Ryan Seacrest.

E!'s Giuliana Rancic wasn't impressed. "First of all, I was going to wear that dress!" she joked. "That would've been a fashion disaster!" After hearing that Lady Gaga could make some best dressed lists, Rancic sighed, "Come on, really?!"

Joked Stephen Colbert: "I know her second outfit. They're just gonna spray her down with glue and run her through a Build-a-Bear workshop!"

Lady Gaga, up for five nominations, already swept two categories, winning the dance recording prize for "Poker Face" and electronic/dance album prize for The Fame. She is also nominated for album, song and record of the year.

Captain America Update

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Film Journal got an update from director Joe Johnston about his next project, Marvel Studios' The First Avenger: Captain America:

"We're in prep," Johnston says. "Rick Heinrichs is production-designing and we're set up down in Manhattan Beach [California]. It's the part of the process that I love the most," he enthuses. "We have eight or ten really talented artists, and we all just sit around all day and draw pictures and say, 'Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we could do this?' It's that phase of the production where money doesn't matter: ‘Let's put all the greatest stuff up on the wall and [then later] see what we can afford.'" The film, he says at this early stage, will begin "in 1942, 1943" during World War II. "The stuff in the ’60s and ’70s [comic books] we're sort of avoiding. We're going back to the ’40s, and then forward to what they're doing with Captain America now."

The First Avenger: Captain America has set a July 22, 2011 release date for the film.

Gisele Bundchen Had a "Moment of Doubt" at Her First Post-Pregnancy Shoot

If you don't understand Portuguese, just enjoy her beauty.
 
Last Monday, Gisele Bundchen had her first post-pregnancy photoshoot for Colcci's ad campaign, and just a week later, the first image by David Sims has surfaced . Gisele can be quite press-shy about personal matters — she never confirmed her pregnancy, leaving that to husband Tom Brady when she was already in her third trimester — but now, she seems ready to talk.

She told Brazilian TV show Fantastico of getting back to modeling after taking a break for four months: “Before coming here [the studio] I was pretty worried about if I still could do everything. This moment of doubt really happened. I didn’t know if I’d be able to embody a character. For the first picture I was feeling lost. After the second picture there were no problems anymore, I’m starting to feel comfortable with my body again."

It doesn't hurt that during pregnancy she didn't gain much and "little by little" recovered her form, despite not having time to exercise postpartum. She told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo: "I kept myself in good shape during the entire pregnancy, with a healthy diet, doing yoga and meditation, doing kung fu [until nine months pregnant]. I gained some weight, but I kept using almost the same clothes with some little adjustments to fit the belly."

Now that she's a mother, expect to see her less: "I’ve some contracts and engagements that I’ve to carry out. But I’ll work less to be able to enjoy this amazing moment in my life." And as for seeing baby Benjamin: "I do have pictures but I won’t show him to you guys now. Someday you’ll see him . . . I’ll do everything in my power to protect his privacy. I’m a public person, I deal with the press, my job demands it. But he has nothing to do with my work or anything else related to it, he’s my son and he doesn’t need all that craziness."

Stars drawn to Canadian indie movie's cliche-free look at small-town teens


Actors Kat Dennings and Reece Thompson are being filmed doing a "walk and talk" down a Fort Langley back street for the indie drama Daydream Nation.

That's basically what it sounds like -- walking and talking in character, as the new teen in a small town and one of the locals, respectively. Except that as they walk, two guys man the camera on a dolly track that follows alongside them for the close-up shot. Two more guys are walking behind them, holding a dark sheet on an aluminum frame angled over them to cut the light of an overcast afternoon. Another walks backwards in front of them holding a "bounce," a smaller white sheet, angled under their faces to deflect some of that light back at them.

The first photo is of star Alex Pettyfer sporting his Beast look with the other displaying Vanessa Hudgens, who stars as Lindy Taylor, sitting alone in her bedroom looking as innocent as ever. In addition, you can check out Vanessa Hudgen's message to the Beastly fans on the official Facebook Fan Page. When a spell is cast on a handsome egocentric young man (Pettyfer) that physically transforms him into everything he despises, he has one year to find a young woman (Vanessa Hudgens) who will love him despite his hideous form or the spell will last forever.

What does Joan Jett think of Kristen Stewart's performance in 'The Runaways?'


Joan Jett has nothing but high praise for Kristen Stewart’s depiction of the rocker in “The Runaways.”


Rocker Joan Jett couldn't be happier with the way she's been portrayed by Twilight star Kristen Stewart in the new Runaways biopic, which premiered at Sundance over the weekend to massive hype.

"She's authentic," Jett said in a Sundance interview with Cinema Blend. "I don't mean to put words in her mouth, but what I get is she feels she has to do it justice. She knows the Runaways have fans, she knows I have fans, and she was concerned about being authentic."

Jett also raved about the singing abilities of Stewart and Dakota Fanning, who plays Runaways singer Cherie Currie, in the film -- the voices fans will hear in the live performance scenes belong to the actresses themselves. "When you see Kristen singing, that's really her singing," said Jett. Same thing for Dakota and Cherie. I think they did an incredible job. I was very proud."

The 51-year-old singer-guitarist was also shocked to discover how much she had in common with the 19-year-old Stewart. "When you see us together physically, the energy is so similar," Jett said. "The way we move, the way our hands move and our hair, the way we talk, we start and don't finish sentences."

Despite the kinship, Stewart didn't find it easy to channel the energy of the groundbreaking rock star, who, with the tough-as-nails Runaways, scorched many stereotypes of how women had to behave in a rock band. "Everybody knows Joan Jett, but nobody really knows how hard it was to become her," Stewart told the UK Press Association."We've grown up being told that we, us girls, can do whatever we want, and that just wasn't the case for them."

The film was one of the hottest titles as Sundance kicked off over the weekend. Stewart and Fanning watched as Joan Jett and her band took the stage Saturday night at a SPIN-sponsored bash. The Runaways screened at the festival the following night, and initial reviews have been quite favorable.

Transgender Singer wins Canada's Sexiest Man title

Lucas Silveira, the openly transgender lead singer of Toronto alt-rock band The Cliks, became the first transman to win the "Throw Your Underwear Award Male" (Sexiest Canadian Man) in the year end reader's poll from Chart Attack, Canada's premier music magazine. And while the long list of musical Canadian hotties might have several less familiar names to Americans, Silveira did narrowly beat out Avril Lavigne's ex, Deryck Whibley of Sum 41.

The androgynous Cliks have made headlines for their gender-bending style, being compared to David Bowie and other musical fashionistas. But their rock icon take on the classic suit comes with the genuine desire to just be themselves. In an interview with Queerty, Silveira said:

It wasn’t something that we sat down and said, “What’s going to be our look?” We kind of presented ourselves as “you know, this is rock n roll and you want to put on a good show and we just took it up a notch from our everyday style ... I think our label [Tommy Boy] and our management are really happy that we have this look, because image is as important in the music industry as what you’re selling with regard to your music.

This savvy sense of style has obviously caught the attention of Canadian fans. Whether because of, or in spite of The Clik’s queer overtures and Silveira’s out trans status, metrosexual sexiness has made Silveira a symbol of desirable masculinity. This is even more interesting considering that Silveira does not take testosterone.

While transmen are diverse in their levels of transition, taking hormones or not, opting to not have surgery or to have some and not others, testosterone injection has become on of the most culturally significant markers of trans masculinity. But Silveira knew that it would not serve his voice well. He tells About.com:

When I first realized that I wasn’t going to be able to go on T, I was very, very disappointed. Because I thought, finally, I’m going to be able to do this. But then I started doing the research and I discovered that it would do what it would do to my voice.

Essentially what testosterone does is it thickens your vocal cords. For about a two-and-a-half year period, you sound like a teenage boy going through puberty. Your voice is squeaky. As a singer, I know where placement is. I can go (he sings La, la, la, la, la) and if I took T and it started to modify my cords and I would go “La, la, la, la la” but it would come out “Ooahlagaya.” I can’t risk that. Because to me, my voice is number one. I couldn’t possibly deal with the fact that it could be damaged forever.


But Silveira has proved you can be a sexy man with or without a beard and wants to be a model of other trans guys who want to acknowledge their difference and their gender ambiguity.

I started thinking about that because I feel like, not only am I a voice for the trans community going out into mainstream, but there are guys like me. We’re they guys who are truly in the middle. I’ve had top surgery, but I’m not doing T. And to tell you the truth, I don’t know if I ever will. I feel very comfortable being where I am right now.

Moviefone's 25 Best Action Movies

indy-would-have-cherished-this-hat-even-more

They don't call 'em motion pictures for nothing. At its heart, film is about motion, forward movement, momentum, unfolding spectacle. In a word, action.

There's no medium like the movies for telling stories that are about the pure joy of movement, the heart-pounding excitement of grand events taking place before your eyes, the thrill of witnessing brave and foolhardy deeds you'd never attempt in real life. No wonder action films are a beloved movie genre. And these are 25 of our favorites.

(Note: While the overlap with action-oriented subgenres like fantasy, sci-fi and superhero mandated their inclusion here, we did not include Westerns or war films.)

Victoria Beckham on the cover of Glamour



On getting starstruck:
“I [once] shared a plane with George Clooney. I still get excited. My mum and I said, ‘Oh my God’…I’m leading an extraordinary life. I never try to be too cool about [it].”

On how she spends her free time: “I travel a fair amount, and when I’m here in L.A., everything revolves around the kids. So if I’m not working, I go to the school and help serve lunches to the children. They just love that. It’s like, Oh, there’s Mummy serving me!”

On David: “It’s not healthy to be jealous. I look at David and I think, He’s so handsome and I’m so lucky to have him as a husband. And he’s an amazing father. I don’t blame people for looking at him and finding him attractive. I mean, I do.”

Vampire Weekend Loves Lady GaGa



Last week, indie band Vampire Weekend recorded a co-hosting appearance on Sirius Radio’s SIRIUS XMU channel (their latest album, Contra, recently landed atop the Billboard 200).

During a conversation that spanned several topics, host Jenny Eliscu asked the Vampire boys who their favorite secret music indulgence was, and keyboardist/guitairst Rostam Batmanglij offered up a rather surprising (for him!), answer: “Pretty much everything by Lady Gaga,” Batmanglij said. When Eliscu said she took issue with Gaga, claiming there’s “no there there,” Batmanglij defended the pop princess, explaining that she’s helping teenagers know that “they shouldn’t feel like a freak. That’s something I personally can relate to. And so I think it is meaningful. I think what she is doing is meaningful.” Well put, Rostam!

Hope you're sitting down for this, Lost fans, 'cause it's just another reason to mourn the end of one of the best TV series of all time.

Matthew Fox says he's done with television. And Evangeline Lilly says she's done with acting.

"I think this will be the last time you see me on TV," Matthew told me at Lost's season premiere party in Honolulu on Saturday. "I'm either going to do the kind of things I want to do in the film world, or maybe I'll just do something else entirely."

After production wraps for good in April, Matthew says he'll be moving to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to his brothers and their families. "I've done almost 300 hours of [TV]," Foxy tells me. "It's been two really great experiences between Party of Five and Lost. I'm ready to take it to the next step and see what I can do in that [film] world."

It was on Lost's awesome banyan tree set on the North Shore that Evangeline told me she is not planning to continue acting after Lost ends.

"Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it's been an amazing experience," Evi tells me. "But I'm not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor." She adds that she'll probably continue on in the film world in some kind of capacity at some point, but "I just haven't found where that is yet. I don't know if anything has gelled yet. I don't know if it fits."

"I want to have some quiet space," Evangeline says of her post-Lost plans, which will include philanthropic work in Rwanda. "[I want to] drop off the radar a little bit and enjoy a little bit of normalcy again."

So what do you all think of Evangeline and Matthew quitting our TV screens? Sure, they can quit us, but can we quit them?

Paul Bettany On The Benefits Of Working With His Wife

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Married for 7 years in real life, Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly play husband and wife on the big screen in their latest film, Creation. Paul recently talked to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail about the upside of working alongside his wife:


“When people are trying to present a marriage on screen, they tend to look at each other too much, when really, a lot of ignoring goes on. When I’m sitting watching television with my wife and I put my hand out, I don’t need to look at her, I know where her hand is, because it’s been there for the last seven years. So I think the film got that much for free."


The 38-year-old actor admits that he and Jennifer did tend to take their work home with them.


"Also, when we’d put the kids to bed and were lying in bed exhausted, Jennifer and I were able to talk about the next day’s work," Paul says, adding, "Now, I’m not saying that it’s in any way abnormal for leading actors and actresses to be in bed together – but I doubt they’re talking about the next day’s work.


The couple are raising boys Kai, 12, - Jennifer's son from a previous relationship - and Stellan, 6.

He was bragging about it at Mansion Miami the other night. The Situation -- who hosted a "best ripped abs" competition and sipped Into2 energy drinks with co-star Jenni "Jwoww" Farley -- then boasted of his starring role on the MTV show, saying, "Other than myself and a few others, the rest of the cast were extras." Ah, the sweet smell of success.

Reaction To Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood Cover Girls

"Young Hollywood" Is White, Thin



What does "Young Hollywood" look like? According to Vanity Fair, it's pretty, thin, female and white.

Amanda Seyfried, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska, Evan Rachel Wood: There's not a single woman of color on the cover of Vanity Fair's "Young Hollywood" issue. Two of the ladies — Kristen Stewart and Amanda Seyfried — were already on the August 2008 "Hollywood's New Wave." issue. There were two women of color — Zoe Saldana, America Ferrara — on the cover of 2008's "Hollywood Issue," but apparently the next decade is not about diversity.

VF's "Young Hollywood" is much like the golden age of Hollywood: There was a fetishization of the lithe, gorgeous, virginal ingenue, whose virtues and ambitions were pure, and therefore desirable. You either wanted to be her or sleep with her. She was the photographed wearing white, and her "All-American" good looks meant that she was a WASP or a fresh-faced farmgirl. Certainly not black, definitely not fat, and never both. Looking at the March 2010 issue, has anything changed? Even Evgenia Peretz's descriptions of the actresses — "Ivory-soap-girl features," "patrician looks" "dewy, wide-eyed loveliness" — reinforce the idea that a successful actress is a pretty, aristocratic-looking (read: white) actress.

It's hard to say if fault lies with the editors of the magazine, or with Hollywood itself — trying to come up with some projects employing new, young Asian, black or Latin actors and actresses is a tough exercise. The few names which come to mind — Jaden Smith (The Pursuit Of Happiness, The Kung-Fu Kid), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Julian Schnabel's Miral, Woody Allen's next film), Gianna Jun (Blood: The Last Vampire, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan) — are up-and-comers with just a few roles under their belts. The Hurt Locker's Anthony Mackie recently did a Q&A with VF.

Gabourey Sidibe — cover girl for the March issue of Ebony — is an obvious choice, though she admits in the accompanying interview:

"I don't try to live up to the standards of Hollywood or any of that – I know that I'm different and I celebrate it. In a weird way, I kind of really, really love being the alien in the room. I dig it."

And it's good that Gabby doesn't care about living up to Hollywood standards. Because judging from the VF cover, the "Hollywood" standards need to change.

Jon Hamm is Fat (PHAT)



Jon Hamm totally does it for us. He's absurdly easy on the eyes. He regularly seduces us on "Mad Men," as a guy so brooding, so emotionally withholding, so fantastically messed up, we'd cut off a finger if the Blue Fairy would just make him real and send him on over. But the clincher – proven by his prior appearances on "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" – is that he's deftly, disarmingly funny.

Making a repeat appearance on "SNL" this weekend, Hamm didn't just milk easy laughs out of his supercool Don Draper persona (though he did that too). Nope, what really got us hot and bothered was his eagerness to take off his shirt – revealing a body so downright normal it was almost cuddly.

Behind the scenes of Amber Rose's Persona photo shoot

The video is comprised of behind-the-scenes footage from Persona’s photo shoot with Amber Rose that retells the story from the film, “This is England”. The film centers on a group of London Skinheads hanging in England during the 1960s. It was a time when this particular subculture didn’t bother with politics and race but more fixated themselves on the unisex fashion, music, and lifestyle-alternate to the popular Mod trend. Deviating from the norm and portraying this rebellious attitude, the Skinheads represented a time of change much like the shaven-headed beauty, Amber Rose.

Update: 'Deadliest Catch' Capt. Undergoes 12 Hr. Surgery

Phil Harris -- the captain of the F/V Cornelia Marie on "Deadliest Catch" -- underwent a 12-hour emergency surgery last night ... and was put in a medically induced coma.

Harris suffered a stroke on Friday and was rushed to the hospital
. According to a source close to the family, doctors put Harris in a coma to reduce brain swelling after the surgery.

We're told his sons Jake and Josh -- who are both deckhands on the F/V Cornelia Marie -- plan to speak with doctors today. The F/V Cornelia Marie is currently back out at sea -- minus Harris and his two sons.

Harris was off-loading his boat when the stroke hit and he was immediately airlifted to an Anchorage hospital -- where a Discovery rep says Harris "is resting comfortably and is in the care of excellent doctors and nurses."

Green Lantern Concept Art

No one knows sci-fi like the folks over at io9, so I’m inclined to believe their claim that these new pictures are indeed concept art from Ryan Reynold’s GREEN LANTERN. They showcase a whole host of aliens, including the concept behind Mark Strong’s sinestro, and with the right CGI/prosthetics, they could look pretty damn cool onscreen.

GREEN LANTERN is going to be a superhero movie not quite like anything we’ve seen before, as the only aliens we’ve seen in our DC/Marvel movies to date for the most part has been a creepy crawly bit of black goo in SPIDER-MAN 3 and of course, the alien-in-chief himself, Superman.

CBS Defends Bleeped Lil Wayne, Eminem, Drake Grammy Performance

 

Some fans are saying CBS censors were overeager with the bleep button during Drake's performance of "Forever" with Lil Wayne and Eminem at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards, but a CBS spokesperson defended the audio edits on Monday (February 1).

The sound was dropped out a number of times during the collective's performance, which drew the ire of fans watching at home. On Twitter and Facebook, viewers posted about their confusion, thinking technical difficulties were to blame. The issue continued as blogs and Web sites, most notably New York magazine, questioned the censorship.

 

 

 

A spokesman for CBS, however, said the rappers were free to perform within a certain parameter that each entertainer had to abide by. CBS' Chris Ender praised the MCs' showmanship but said the explicit material made it difficult to broadcast without some degree of censoring.

"It was a rousing musical performance, but words were edited from the live telecast that didn't meet our broadcast standards," Ender explained, according to The Associated Press. "We have great respect for artists' creative freedom, but there are certain things you can't say, or sing, on television."

According to a number of reports, the "Forever" performance was more audible during the tape-delayed broadcast on the West Coast. Many have also noted that the artists themselves actually censored their lyrics and either replaced them with clean words or pauses. It's a difficult position for CBS to be in, though, considering Wayne and Eminem chose to perform a song that many have yet to hear — "Drop the World," from Weezy's upcoming Rebirth album — which includes a significant amount of profanity.

The 2010 Grammy Awards may be over, but MTV News will have much, much more from the show, including reports on your favorite nominees, party photos, behind-the-scenes video and much more from the big show!

Major Lazer trash-talks, covers Beyonce's 'Halo' with help from Elephant Man



Oh, Diplo, you joker. The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance went to Beyoncé’s “Halo” last night, one of six trophies she took home — more than any female artist ever. Producer/DJ Diplo’s erratically capitalized response via Twitter: “SERIOUSLY CANT BELIEVE beyonce won a GraNNY when My VErSiOn of HaLo with elefant man + @majorlazer is SoOO MUCH BETTER!” Diplo even included a link to download his conceptual dancehall project Major Lazer’s cover of “Halo,” with lead vocals provided by Jamaican star Elephant Man, right there in his tweet. If you add the MP3 to iTunes, the artist will be listed as “Diplo shoulda won grammy.” Ha ha.

Putting Diplo’s prankish commentary aside — because I don’t think anyone including him could seriously argue that the three dudes behind this cover deserved Best Female Pop Vocal Performance over Queen B — this version of “Halo” is…okay. It stays fairly close to the original, except with Elephant Man growling instead of Beyoncé belting the verses. I’m not hearing the kind of irresistible, innovative beats that Major Lazer guys Diplo and Switch usually bring to the table, though. Is this “Halo” cover fun? Sure. Necessary? Not particularly.

Use Diplo’s Twitter link to check out Major Lazer’s “Halo,” then sound off: Are you glad Diplo leaked this cover? Do you think he’s in a position to be talking trash about Beyoncé’s Grammys?

Greg James will be hosting the new weekly show. He said: "I want to shine a light on all the songs going in and dropping out of the charts.

"Why are people buying a specific record? Why aren't they buying that one? Reasons like that."

And now a moment of silence for Matthew Broderick's career


Matthew Broderick is coming to series television.

The actor, who had been courted by TV networks for years, is attached to star in NBC's comedy pilot "Beach Lane," which was given the green light Monday.

"Beach Lane," from UMS, Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video and writer Paul Simms ("NewsRadio"), stars Broderick as a celebrity author hired by an irresponsible millionaire heir to run his struggling small-town newspaper in the Hamptons.

Broderick was approached to do the project months ago but would only commit after reading the final script.

His involvement in "Beach Lane" follows his guest stint on NBC's "30 Rock," which is exec produced by Michaels.

The real lives of footballer wives (and girlfriends)


Don't envy the WAGs - I've seen inside their world and it's shallow, lonely and miserable
By Alison Kervin

I got to know a number of WAGs because over the past few years I've been researching their world for a series of novels about their antics, and attempting to find out what their lives are really like away from the headlines and all those parties that they appear to attend with such gusto.

The innate sadness and loneliness of these women is a far cry from the 'get dressed in designer labels, drink gallons of champagne and party all night' view of the WAGs to which we've grown accustomed.

ONTD, would you ever want to become a WAG? Would you give up your normal life to have an unlimited bank account and more clothes than you know what to do with, even if it meant a life of loneliness and not being able to trust your boyfriend/husband or your fellow WAGs?

Tom Waits Plans New Musical with In Bruges Director Martin McDonagh



Tom Waits is once again teaming up with stage director Robert Wilson for a fourth musical project, after the pair collaborated on three previous stage oddities over the years: The Black Rider, Alice in Wonderland and Woyzeck. But that's not all. According to /Film, the project also finds Waits and Wilson being joined by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh (The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Pillowman), who is best known for directing the 2008 cult classic gangster film, In Bruges.

With such formidable talent surrounding him, there's no doubt Waits should be able to create yet another wonderful and bizarre stage play, although no title or subject matter has been announced for the project.

The new show is scheduled to premiere in Paris in 2011, and if it's anything like the three previous Waits/Wilson productions which debuted in 1990, 1992 and 2000, respectively, it should result in some great new Waits material for release worldwide.

The three previous plays were released as albums, and Waits's Blood Money album also features songs from Woyzeck.

Jesse James' Daughter Allowed Calls, Not Visits, From Porn Star Mom




It's not exactly a loss for Jesse James—and it's not what you'd call a massive win for his porn-star ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder, either.

At a hearing today in the contentious custody battle between Sandra Bullock's current hubby and his former missus, a judge ordered that Lindemulder be allowed to make daily phone calls to her 6-year-old daughter, Sunny, who currently resides full-time with the famous couple.

It was first announced almost two years ago that Steven Spielberg would be developing a new live-action adaptation of the beloved manga GHOST IN THE SHELL.

Since then we've heard bits and pieces regarding the project, but they still haven't really progressed past the development stage on it. We also learned last October that Shutter Island writer (and Avatar executive producer) Laeta Kalogridis would be writing the script for Spielberg. While out promoting the release of Shutter Island, both MoviesOnline and Screen Rant (via Anime News Network) caught up with Kalogridis and asked her about the latest on the adaptation.

CHRIS BROWN IS LIVE RIGHT NOW!!!


The first song was "BullS---." I am offended such a word is in the title of a song.
"Sex" about having sex without being in love and how its good. OFFENSIVE. THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION.
Next he played "convertible."
Then was "Too freaky."

She’s one of the hardest working ladies in showbiz, and it sounds like Miley Cyrus won’t even be taking time off to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

The “Hannah Montana” actress, who has been spending plenty of time with Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth, says she’s not planning on anything special come February 14th.

When asked about her V-day aspirations, simply replied, “Work. I’m really boring.” Cyrus also revealed that she tried on three dresses before hitting the Grammy red carpet. “I hate trying on clothes- I cannot do it. They pin you forever.”

As for the rumors that she’s engaged, Miley explained that she bought her promise ring for herself. “I bought it myself. And I got it made in London, and everyone thought it was diamond when it wasn’t. It was the cheapest thing ever ... So if I do get a promise ring, it better be real!”
