MaryLou Lord (90's singer song writer of Killrockstars fame) sets the record straight about her fabled friendship with Kurt Cobain

There were long-ago rumors of a a brief friendship between her and a young Kurt..one that infamously brought the wrath of Courtney..

Designer temporary tattoos... really?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This fashion week I’ve been introduced to many Australian designers like Michael Angel, Kit Willow and now I can add Michelle Jank to that list thanks to Lara Bingle.

The Cricket WAG arrived at the “Allan Border Medal” ceremony in Melbourne with fiancé Michael Clarke.

As usual she looked A-Friggin-Mazing wearing a very simple, but incredibly sexy white Michelle Jank Spring 2010 gown with padded shoulders.

The gown draped deliciously off her toned tanned figure.

Instead of wearing jewels, Lara opted for temporary Chanel tattoos of draping necklaces and multiple bracelets which we saw presented in the Spring 2010 collection.

Mathew Knowles Will Pay After All…

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Today, a judge ordered Beyonce’s father to pay $8,200 a month in child support plus 100% of uninsured medical costs to a woman who claims that Mathew Knowles is the father of her child.

"Alexsandra Wright claims she had an 18-month relationship with Knowles and he’s the baby daddy of Nixon — born February 4. Wright’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, went to court today asking for support and the judge granted it.

But Knowles will take a DNA test March 1 … and the long-term support issues hinge on the outcome.

It’s interesting — Knowles has not flat out denied he’s the daddy. And in fact, he gave Alexsandra $10,000 in January to cover uninsured medical costs and baby stuff."

UPDATE: The Judge ordered Knowles to pay Wright $20,750 for the month of January.

Matty’s jump off ain’t cheap. It’s interesting that she got her pay day before paternity was established and he’s paying for support before the baby was born. She just came up.

JaySean talks to the Miami Herald about being a Med Student

The Miami Herald had a Q&A session with Jay Sean yesterday. He talked about med school, his U.S. debut, and meeting Lil Wayne.
"Q: Didn't you find it hard to balance medical school and music?

A: I'm a really hardworking person. I think, honestly, hard work is the only way that you'll get anywhere and this is not an easy job. People think it's easy to be a singer or to be an artist. It's crazy hours and you need a lot of energy and some spirit inside you to do that. But similarly to be a doctor, you need just the same. Some doctors don't even get to sleep and got to perform open-heart surgery off of like 48 hours of being awake -- that's hard."

Harnessing her chi, Dakota Fanning was spotted on her way to a Yoga class in Studio City, California yesterday afternoon (February 16).

The “I Am Sam” actress looked cute and sporty as she strolled past the paparazzi, sporting a grey hoodie with a pair of blue shorts and black sneakers.

Keeping properly hydrated, Dakota also brought along a bottle of mineral water as she arrived at the yoga studio.

Coming up on February 23, Miss Fanning will be celebrating her 16th birthday, and less than a month later (March 19) her movie “The Runaways” hits theaters.

Coroner: Alexander McQueen died of hanging

A British coroner's official has told an inquest that fashion designer Alexander McQueen hung himself in his London apartment last week after leaving a note nearby.

The contents of the note were not released by the coroner's office, which is charged with formally identifying the circumstances of the designer's death.

Coroner's officer Lynda Martindill said Wednesday the 40-year-old McQueen had died from asphyxiation and hanging. Full details of the autopsy will be available in a few months

There were no suspicious circumstances in the death, and authorities suspect no malice, police detective inspector Paul Armstrong testified. After a five-minute hearing Wednesday, coroner Paul Knapman adjourned the inquest until April 28. The inquest has yet to formally rule McQueen's death a suicide.

Full details of the autopsy will be available in a few months, authorities said.

The designer died days before London Fashion Week, although he was not scheduled to show in the British capital.

Natasha Bedingfield's Favorite Thing About Marriage: 'Sleeping Naked'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Valentine's Day apparently isn't over yet. Celebrating her first wedding anniversary next month, newlywed Natasha Bedingfield is "loving" being a Mrs. and enjoying the perks of being married – including a steamy sex life.

"The best thing about being a married woman is sleeping naked everyday," Bedingfield ecstatically told PEOPLE at the G-Star Raw runway fashion show in New York Tuesday night, "and still liking the guy that I'm with."

Though clothing may be optional for the British singer-songwriter, 28, she says the romance between her and California businessman husband Matthew Robinson is spicier than ever.

"He keeps the romance alive!" she gushed. "It's the man's job to keep the romance alive, and he definitely keeps it hot. I never have to worry about that with him."

While living a blissful married life, the "Unwritten" singer has also been recording songs for her third album, to be released later this year.

"I've been busy writing my album, and it's coming out really soon. My new is album is just about life, and I’m really excited about it."

Semi Precious Weapons Remember When Lady Gaga Opened For Them

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Long before Lady Gaga had the Semi Precious Weapons open for her on her Monster Ball Tour, she was supposed to hit the road with Kanye West. So the glam-rock trio might owe West a "thank you" for deciding not to tour with Gaga.

"She had us open for her," lead singer Justin Tranter, who makes a cameo in Gaga's forthcoming "Telephone" video, told MTV News. "We knew that she always wanted us to open for her for this tour. She put her foot down. I don't care what anybody says, we pretty much owe our lives to Gaga."

"And Kanye,"
bandmate Cole Whittle jokingly added.

Semi Precious Weapons go back years with Gaga — all the way back to the days when she had to depend on them to fill the tiny Manhattan venues she used to play long before she was the Grammy-winning phenom she is today.

"When we met her, we were doing shows here bringing, like, 300 people or so, and we were looking for bands to open for us," Whittle recalled. "They were all boring, but she was fun and partied, and her and [Gaga's performing partner] Lady Starlight had a really cool show. We were like, 'I'd much rather see this than some hipster band.' "

So they opted to do the upcoming pop star a favor and have her join them for their shows. Despite the fact that she was playing to very small crowds, she was beyond thankful for the spot.

"She was big fans of ours before we met her. She was so grateful to be playing with us, 'cause she loved us so much," Tranter said. "She was like, 'I've never seen so many people! Thank you so much for letting me open.' It's obviously a little different now. Them tables have turned! [Back then,] it was still the most awesome thing we'd ever seen. It's still the most awesome show we ever saw. She's always been the coolest girl!"

ESPN's review of Last Night; Johnny Weir, "Tonight was really everything that I hoped it would be."


Now this is Olympic entertainment

VANCOUVER -- I know there are people who don't consider figure skating a real sport, what with the sequins, rhinestones, glitter, judges, incomprehensible scoring system, stuffed animals, and did I mention the sequins? But where else can you see this wild a range of athleticism, emotion, theater, artistry and just plain entertainment?

Consider Tuesday's men's short program, where in addition to guys leaping and spinning an impossible four revolutions in the air and still landing cleanly on a sheet of ice, you had athletes blowing kisses to the fans, punching their fists in exultation, choking back tears and skating to Beethoven, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix while dressed in costumes ranging from a skeleton body suit to a gondolier's outfit to a pink corset to -- I kid you not -- blue overalls.

Erector Set: The Movie

The Meccano Toy Company, maker of the Erector Set, has signed a licensing deal to make a 3-D movie based on their hundred-year-old toy. Meccano inked a deal with indie film company Helix Films, which is now currently developing an original script with hopes of turning the toy into a film franchise. An Erector Set, first sold in the US in 1913, was originally conceived as a model toy construction system by British inventor Frank Hornby. Today, Erector Set toys are sold in more than 80 countries.

More Olympics Drama: Lysacek vs. Weir

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Philadelphia Inquirer has reported that the ex-girlfriend of Lysacek, Tanith Belbin who is an ice dancer and the opponent of Lysacek, Johnny Weir are sharing a room in Vancouver’s Olympic Village and due to this it looks like Evan Lysacek, the U.S. figure skater can’t be a happy camper. Belbin was forced to choose between sharing a room with Lysacek or Weir due to a housing problem and her choice was obvious. Belbin told the newspaper that both Evan and Jhonny were in the same boat. They were just three and there was a suite with two single bedrooms and if you took Jhonny, herself and Evan and did the math then the only answer would be her and Jhonny. But due to the decorating skills of Weir, he became a perfect roommate. Belbin said that there were aromatic candles and he posted the motivational quotes and Audrey Hepburn and Lady Gaga posters on the walls.

Johnny Weir, Flamboyant Olympic figure skater is popular for his over-the top personality. In Vancouver at the 2010 Winter Olympics his impressive skills on the ice is battling anti-fur activists due to some of his costumes. He said that there had been threats against him and he did not want to get hurt. His agent had gotten letters and faxes and emails and he was very threatened by these messages. He had gotten letters at the ice rink. Somebody found his phone number.

After short program of the figure skating competition of men, Lysacek stands on the 2nd place while Weir is on the 6th place. On Thursday the free skate will take place. On next Monday, Feb. 22 the Olympic ice-dance finals will take place.

I'll be roomates with Evan if he doesn't want to be alone.
PETA FUCK OFF! Let Johnny be and I hope that he wears fur tomorrow night.

Jesse James and Cinnabun - Reunited!!!

Jesse James just called ...THEY FOUND CINNABUN!!!

Jesse got a call this AM from a woman who saw a picture of the missing doggie on a flyer. The woman brought the dog to Jesse's shop in Long Beach ten minutes ago. It was indeed Cinnabun and everyone there started bawling.

The woman says she found the dog roaming the streets in Long Beach "a while ago." Jesse says she was "cool" and he's going to give her a reward.

The dog went missing on January 25.

Cinnabun is OK, but really dirty and has lost 15 pounds.

Jersey Shore Feud: Ronnie & Sammi Hate Each Other

Jersey Shore stars Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola spent the first season of the show in a hot romantic relationship but now hate each other and talk only when they need to for the show, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.

Their relationship seemed to come apart on national TV during the reunion show, but things got only worse from that point.

“Ronnie and Sammi aren’t dating anymore, and they don’t want to do any public appearances together because they can’t even stand being in a room together” a source who knows the former lovers told RadarOnline.com.

Sammi and Ronnie were scheduled to meet their fans at McFadden’s in Chicago on February 4th and at Mink in Toronto Canada on February 14th and missed both of their last appearances.

Millions of American’s were watching when Ronnie witnessed the never-before-seen footage of Sammi flirting with Mike “The Situation” in a private conversation where she admitted scoring another man’s phone number at a bar. Sammi was so visibly distraught by the revelation, she burst into tears and stormed off the stage. And of course, no one will forget Ronnie’s not so loving reaction.

“Sam likes to leave certain things out when we have conversations... it makes no difference to me. I cut girls quicker than barbers do,” he said.

And while the couple has broken up before, this time looks like it’s for keeps, the source told RadarOnline.com. They don’t want to be around each other or talk to each other, the source said. Now that the show has been renewed for a second season, it’s going to be impossible for them to avoid each other, so let the fighting begin!

Blind Item: Feuding thesps nix tube reunion

by Michael Ausiello and Andy Patrick

Pick a branch of the entertainment industry, any branch, and you’ll find stars who are as inextricably linked as is their animosity toward one another. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen. Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. Gargamel and Papa Smurf. The list goes on and on but curiously does not include the pair who are the subject of today’s blind item. Who are they? And how have they kept their mutual hatred a secret?

That’s for you to figure out. But what I can tell you is that when they worked together years ago, it was to great acclaim — so great that a lotta folks have been hoping they’d reteam ever since. Recently, a small-screen opportunity arose that would’ve allowed for exactly that to happen, only the ex-castmates said, and in no uncertain terms, hell to the no. They both still took the gig, mind you, they just insisted on never being made to act opposite one another.

I’d try to build in an extra clue or two, but frankly, the thought of them hating me half as much as they do each other terrifies me. And I’m not sure I could learn to sleep with one eye literally open. But you guys feel free to guess away. Though I won’t tell you if you’re right, I might let at least a few of you know if you’re wrong.


It's totally Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth. They have been rumored to hate each other since Wicked. And they are both going to be on Glee when it returns in April.

This Forbidden Broadway parody video sums the "rivalry" up perfectly! Enjoy!

Thom Yorke lends musical hand for NYC Fashion Week

It’s been this way for a while, but Radiohead’s Thom Yorke continues to be a man of many surprises. This is no more exemplified then by this week’s news that the blogosphere’s most exhilarating figure possibly chose to shun Peter Gabriel in favor of a solo “something” and New York Fashion Week.

Yep, as the Style File Blog notes (via atease), Yorke recently lent his musical skills — in this case, his ability to make a playlist — for design company Rag & Bone and its recent events at NYC’s Fashion Week.
In fact, it took some five months for designer Marcus Wainwright and the Radiohead frontman to settle on the tracks for the shows, which Yorke then mixed and put together. “A lot of bass this season. At the men’s show, we blew out a speaker,” Wainwright explained.

The atease kids dug up a few videos from the shows in which you can kind of make out Yorke’s work (remember… there’s a lot of bass!), including one here and one here.

OK! COVER STORY: Jessica Simpson — Betrayed by John Mayer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Jessica Simpson was stunned on Feb. 10 when she awoke to a flood of texts, e-mails and Tweets asking if she had seen ex-flame John Mayer’s Playboy interview. That would be the cringingly frank spill-all in which he likened her to “sexual napalm” and “crack cocaine.”

“Jessica was shocked,” a pal of the singer tells OK!. “She was really pissed off at first when she heard about it, then she read the whole interview, and the first thing that she said was, ‘I’m annoyed John would sink so low.’ ”

Facing a barrage of criticism, John, 32, expressed regret that night at a concert in Nashville. “I quit the media game,” he told the crowd at Sommet Center, voice choked with emotion. “I’m out. I’m done. I just want to play my guitar… I completey forgot about the people that I love and that love me.”


Gabby responds to VF cover 'snub'

While Gabourey Sidibe (or any young Hollywooder who was not female, white, and over a size 2) was not featured on Vanity Fair’s now controversial Young Hollywood cover, she says she’s not really phased by it. Here’s what Gabby said when asked at the Oscar nominee luncheon about being featured inside the mag, but not on the cover :

“Was I satisfied? Yeah, well… I mean, I come from a world where I’m not on covers and I’m not in magazines at all. And so I was happy to be in the magazine. At first I thought, ‘Hmm, should I be there? Then I very quickly got over it. I think if I were a part of that shoot I would have felt a little left out anyway. I would have felt a little like… whether or not I should have been there. [It] doesn’t matter, because I wasn’t on it and I’m excited to be mentioned anywhere, and it doesn’t matter to me where I’m not mentioned.”

Westminster Best in Show winner Sadie the Scottish Terrier takes victory lap

With an entourage bigger than Leonardo DiCaprio's, the city's top dog took her victory lap around Manhattan Wednesday morning.
Sadie, the Scottish terrier crowned a night earlier as Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club championship, was enjoying the perks of her triumph.

"You are gorgeous!" cooed Whoopi Goldberg, sharing some chicken with Sadie before they both went on "The View."
The top pooch earlier outshone movie superstar DiCaprio, arriving with her bevy of attendants for CBS's "Early Show."
The star of the upcoming "Shutter Island" only appeared once Sadie's spot was over.
"So Leonardo was right after us!" laughed her handler, Gabriel Rangel.
 "She can be a diva, if it makes her a great show dog," said David Frei, Westminster's communications director.
Sadie soaked up the attention, offering a smile as people stroked her beard. She was generally very composed - although she did yawn on national television while appearing on ABC's "Good Morning America" and barked at the first camera put in her face before breakfast.
"I think she knows," said Rangel. "She's very aware of everything."
Sadie only got two or three hours of sleep after her late-night victory. She started with her entourage of 11 at 6 a.m., hitting all the morning talk shows.
"That's the dog that won the show!" exclaimed passersby as she was whisked from one spot to another.
On "Good Morning America," Sadie was rushed into a makeup room, where she perched on her chair and leaned to check herself out in the mirror.
Rangel brushed out her beard, twisted her lengthy eyebrows and spritzed her with water.
After "The View," Sadie's schedule includes a visit with Donald Trump and a trip to the top of the Empire State Building.

When it comes to Twitter, Kim Kardashian can't help herself.

On a Tuesday night flight from NYC to L.A., the reality star Tweeted about her seat companion: a U.S. air marshal.

"I'm on the airplane...love wifi," Kardashian, 29, wrote. "I am sitting next to an Air Marshall! Jim the air marshall makes me feel safe!"

Not all of her 3 million-plus Twitter followers were pleased: Air Marshals are intended to remain anonymous in order to ensure the safety of passengers.

"lmao poor Jim the air marshall is going to get fired thanks to you hahahaha,"
one follower said. Added another: "if he exposed to you that he WAS an air marshall...I would say that was priviledged info that only the crew was suppose[d] to know"

"just don't tweet stuff like that!" one fan begged. "u know better.dear lord u just dont talk abt air marshall's on flights! Its on the DL Kim!!"

"RELAX I just told u guys the Air Marshall is sitting next to me, highly doubt anyone is twittering like me on this flight! shhh," Kardashian tweeted to defend herself.

"Air Marshall's are supposed to keep their identity concealed,"
she added. "He did! I am just a private eye & assumed, so I asked him & he was honest!"

Her final Tweet of the evening: "OK I hope I don't get in trouble...logging off now! xo."

Afterwards, another follower sniffed: "Doubt he really was an Air Marshall, she was probably just dumb enough to believe him."

EXCLUSIVE: "Wasted" Kristin Cavallari Hunted for Cocaine at Super Bowl

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's reality-check time for Kristin Cavallari.

The Hills star raised eyebrows for all the wrong reasons during Super Bowl weekend in Miami: "She was wasted the entire time," a source says in the new issue of Us Weekly. "She was going around to everyone, asking them to score her some coke." (Cavallari's lawyer refutes the allegations to Us; MTV declined to comment.)

But those close to the hard-partying Cavallari, 23, say that such antics have become more and more typical. "Her issues are becoming apparent to everyone," an insider reveals. "She's getting scary-thin and not showering regularly...She's clearly unhealthy."

Her Hills friends Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt have all urged her to check into rehab, but to no avail. "She doesn't think she has a problem," a source says.

And Cavallari isn't just a wild girl on her days off: the erratic, gaunt star has become chronically tardy to Hills tapings -- when she shows up at all.

In a sad twist, her struggles may even become fodder on MTV's hit show. "Her drug problem finally became an unavoidable conversation topic on film," an insider says. "If MTV uses the footage, it will be clear to everyone."

Akon goes on to call Gaga a "super megastar" -- she's scored four consecutive top 10 singles, three consecutive #1 songs, and her breakout hit, 'Just Dance,' was the second-highest selling single of the last decade.

Florence and the Machine album sales soar 1,550% after Brit Awards win

Sales of Florence and The Machine's album Lungs soared 1550 per cent following Florence's duet with British rapper Dizzee Rascal at the glitzy Brit Awards ceremony last night.

The massive surge in sales boosted the band's debut album, which won the award for Best British Album, to the top of the Amazon.co.uk music best-sellers chart, as both television and live viewers were blown away by the rendition of You've Got The Love.

HMV spokesman Gennaro Castaldo said: 'Each year featured Brits artists can always expect a huge lift in sales of their recordings - both in the run-up the ceremony itself and then immediately after, when their media profile is at its greatest. The biggest gainers are those that give show-stealing performances on the night or who grab the headlines by winning multiple awards. Such artists can easily experience a doubling or even a trebling of sales overnight, especially in these days of instant downloads, while a further boost can be expected at the weekend, when people are out shopping.'

Let's just say that his response didn't do much to dispel the notion that he's a hot-head who's prone to violent outbursts. Coleman went off on guest panelist Lisa Bloom, telling her, "You can go f*ck" yourself!" Then he growled, "F*ck all of you!" to the rest of the panel and stormed off the set.

When Television Shows Cross The Pond: What's Worked and What Hasn't

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, except when it sucks. Take this habit the US seems to have of straight-up jacking television material from other countries…without even changing plot lines or character names.

America merely spits them through a red-white-and-blue filter and thinks that no one will notice, because no one actually watches BBC America. Sometimes this method of TV creation works swimmingly and turns comedians into award show hosts and makes some funny actors uber-famous. But more often than not, these doppelganger sitcoms fizzle and die—only to live on in haphazard Wikipedia entries and blurry YouTube clips.

Despite the small success rate, it doesn't seem like networks are stopping anytime soon. Three of Britain's biggest heavyweights are already slated for American production in 2010. Will they crossover to our turf with ease? Or will censorship, non-transferring humor and a lack of sweet accents get the better of them? Only time will tell. But enough of that—onto the evidence!

Exclusive: Rob Kardashian kisses and tells

How much of what we see on the show is real and how much is reenacted or scripted?
People always ask us that. Our show isn’t really scripted and there are a lot of shows that are, like, The Hills. But our show is not scripted in that way. Before we start every season, we have a meeting [with producers] seeing what’s going on in our lives, and they put the camera crews with whoever has the most events. We’re stuck with the cameras for months, for a three-month period off and on. Nothing’s scripted in that sense. There’s people who say, ‘We wish you would do that or show this,’ but we’ve all met as a family and we’ve decided that we won’t do anything just because the producers ask us to.

Do you ever get uncomfortable with the attention — positive, negative or otherwise — your sisters attract? After all, Kim does have that sex tape…do you ever get protective of them?
I don’t. I’m pretty comfortable with everything. There have been instances where I’ve yelled at some people, or tried to get into a fight with someone over the way they’ve been looking at my sister while we’ve been working. None of that really gets to us because people are always going to judge. As for the sex tape — it’s in the past and you have to learn from your mistakes and move on.

Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" tops the 3 million mark in paid downloads. It's her third song to hit this level, following "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." Gaga is the first artist in digital history to amass three 3 million-sellers as a lead artist. Rihanna also has three, but she was a featured artist on one of those (T.I.'s "Live Your Life"). Lil Wayne, likewise, has three, but he was a featured artist on two of those (Kevin Rudolf's "Let It Rock" and Jay Sean's "Down"). Kudos, Gaga..

Kristin denies being a cokehead.

I’m not one to gossip so you didn’t hear it from me.

After Us Weekly possibly outted her as a cokehead.Kristin Cavallari issued a strong rebuttal via (where else?) Twitter.

"Wasted" Kristin Cavallari Hunted for Cocaine at Super Bowl

It's reality-check time for Kristin Cavallari.
The Hills star raised eyebrows for all the wrong reasons during Super Bowl weekend in Miami: "She was wasted the entire time," a source says in the new issue of Us Weekly. "She was going around to everyone, asking them to score her some coke." (Cavallari's lawyer refutes the allegations to Us; MTV declined to comment.)
And Cavallari isn't just a wild girl on her days off: the erratic, gaunt star has become chronically tardy to Hills tapings -- when she shows up at all.

Since Kristin has very eloquently denied the rumor on twitter it is obviously false.

Bloomberg is reporting that Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has been added as a defendant in a plagiarism lawsuit against UK Harry Potter book publisher Bloomsbury we first reported last summer. As readers will recall, the suit, filed by the estate of late children's author Adrian Jacobs, claimed that "JK Rowling copied substantial parts of the work of the late Adrian Jacobs, The Adventures of Willy the Wizard-No 1 Livid Land, and that Bloomsbury in selling the books have infringed the Estate's copyright." Today, the estate included J. K. Rowling as a defendant in that suit, after, as the estate claims, "discovering legal cause of action against her within the last six years."

J. K. Rowling has released the following statement through her spokesman:

I am saddened that yet another claim has been made that I have taken material from another source to write Harry. The fact is I had never heard of the author or the book before the first accusation by those connected to the author’s estate in 2004; I have certainly never read the book. The claims that are made are not only unfounded but absurd and I am disappointed that I, and my U.K. publisher Bloomsbury, are put in a position to have to defend ourselves.

Wizard sauce...ooer.

Cheryl Arrives at Heathrow Airport with different wedding ring 17/02

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pop Princess Cheryl Cole has been seen wearing a new ring on her wedding finger following earlier reports that the singer had removed her wedding ring during her triumphant BRIT Awards performance.

The 26-year-old arrived at Heathrow airport this morning to catch an LA bound flight, leaving unfaithful hubby Ashley Cole to wallow in self pity at their Surrey mansion - but it was unclear whether she was wearing her ring or not.

New photos show that Cheryl has not only banished the ring she married Ashley with but has also replaced it with an entirely different one, perhaps implying he is out of the picture for good.

Private Cheryl is yet to address her worried fans about what she plans to do over the rumours that her Chelsea hubby has lied to her yet again.

Earlier today it was reported that the couple’s planned romantic getaway to Dubai had been called off by the Girls Aloud star as she fleed the country to escape her marital issues.

Serena Williams' Shocking New Career: Nail Tech

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Serena Williams has always given one hundred percent to her endeavors and her upcoming nail collection is not an exception.

The tennis champ has recently enrolled in a 240-hour program to be certified as a nail tech in Florida.

“No one likes getting their nails done more than I do. As a matter of fact I go every four days to get a manicure and every seven days for a pedicure. So, I had a brilliant idea to get certified to be a nail tech,” she wrote on her Global Grind blog.

"Besides the fact that I am coming out with a nail collection from a company called HairTech, I thought 'Serena, this is a no-brainer'.”

Shortly after returning home from the Australian Open, Williams began researching schools that would let her finish the course at her own pace. As always, the athlete made sure she was prepared to face the challenges ahead.

"The night before my class I made sure I had all my tools, books and gear organised. I went to the Hello Kitty store and bought plenty of containers as well as a backpack to keep my belongings. If I'm not the best, I sure do want to look like it."

Tiger Woods to Apologize, Discuss His Past and Future

Tiger Woods is ready to face the public.

After being pummeled in the media in a sex scandal that temporarily derailed his golfing career and shattered his image, Woods plans to ease back into the spotlight by breaking his silence to a select audience Friday morning, his reps say in a statement to Bloomberg news.

"Tiger Woods will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates ... at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida," says the statement from his agent, Mark Steinberg, and his spokesman, Glenn Greenspan. "Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he plans to apologize for his behavior."

In an interview, Steinberg tells Bloomberg: "Tiger feels as though it's time to make amends and to publicly do that."

Woods will not be taking questions, Steinberg says. A group of reporters will be allowed to observe.

Woods, 34, has not spoken in a public forum or made any public appearances since his bizarre Florida car crash last November led to a torrent of allegations that the married PGA pro had affairs with numerous women over the years.

Clip from "She's Out Of My League" starring Jay Baruchel.

About a week ago now, I had a chance to sit down and screen She’s Out of My League, the latest sex comedy from the folks at Paramount. More appropriately, it’s the latest raunch-com from the team that brought us Sex Drive, writers Sean Anders and John Morris. And what I discovered — without spoiling too much of my forthcoming review — is that if there’s anything these guys get right, it is the funny little character moments that populate their otherwise generically designed story. It’s this same talent that made Sex Drive entertaining.

One such moment is an uncomfortable situation for main character Kirk (Jay Baruchel), in which he finds himself stuck in between a sticky situation and common decency. He’s just been getting hot and heavy with his uber-hot girlfriend Molly (Alice Eve) and taken the early train to orgasm town, only to be interrupted by her entire family. What makes the entire scene is the two-seconds of interation he has with her father, played by Trevor Eve. It’s a gag, yes, but there’s a bit of nuance that makes it work. Plus, there’s a cautionary tale here, gents — I believe we also learned it in the 1998 Farrelly Brothers film There’s Something About Mary. You know, the one about not going on a date with a super-hot girl with a fully fueled rocket. Or something like that.

Check it out for yourself below. She’s Out of My League is in theaters March 12, 2010.

Johnny Depp-narrated Doors' documentary 'When You're Strange' heading to theaters

When You’re Strange, director Tom DiCillo’s documentary about the Doors, will open theatrically April 9.

If you’ve followed the life of the film, like many documentaries, it has had an interesting birth. “Strange,” which DiCillo says is a combo between a documentary and a narrative, screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009. But it took on a new life after Johnny Depp agreed last spring to narrate the piece. The film was produced by Wolf Films/Strange Pictures, in association with Rhino Entertainment. Rhino, which has the Doors’ musical catalog, will release the soundtrack on March 30.

While Oliver Stone directed a biopic about the band, starring Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison, this marks the first feature documentary about the Doors and includes previously unseen footage.

I interviewed DiCillo last year after the film for a piece in Variety and we discussed Morrison’s enduring magical aura that combined danger, sex and art. “[Morrison] was the first to really do that,” DiCillo said. “Elvis was pretty and sexy, but he wasn’t a poet. Jagger was a little dirty, but he wasn’t mythological.”

Of course, part of Morrison’s appeal is that he’s also dead. And while, like Elvis, he had his periods of bloat, the image most of us hold of the Lizard King is the iconic, tortured, impossibly beautiful man shirtless and in leather pants.

For feature director DiCillo, his mandate for his first documentary was that he present a new side to the Doors. “What I most definitely didn’t want to do was paraphrase everything already said about the Doors,” he said. “I [had] to find something personal about this band that hasn’t been said before. That’s what made it very, very challenging. I present Jim Morrison and the band in the way that no one has before. We see them as very human.”

Meanwhile, Depp is quite the music fan. He is now working on a documentary about Keith Richards.

Could be fun. He does have a nice voice. I have several clips of him reading HST on my iPod and it's quite nice.

First Look: Justin Timberlake’s “Nomadic Biker” Collection for William Rast

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In the midst of frantic preparations for their William Rast fashion show in New York today, Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala paused to talk to PEOPLE last night to share more about the upcoming collection, including this exclusive sketch. “We would be nervous if we had time to be,” admits Timberlake, while Ayala reveals that, “all of our buttons and rivets and trims got left in a cab last night.”

Even within the frenzy, the pair still had time to wax poetic about the range, inspired by a “spiritual soul searching nomadic biker journey.” As avid road-trippers themselves, the theme isn’t entirely surprising: “We just get on our bikes and go,” says Timberlake, who expounds, “a year ago we introduced this concept of New America because we thought it was very timely. I think with that concept comes the concept of discovery and that’s sort of the theme of what we’re pushing forward.”

Asked to choose favorites in the series, Ayala says, “Personally I’m a huge denim person myself and our jeans are really on point,” and cites a snakeskin print pair as his pick. Timberlake, meanwhile, enthuses: “I love our leather jackets. We have these tweed dusters on top of these tight leather jackets mixed with a little bit of a Native American influence on the girls with foxtails. It’s pretty cool.” With William Rast branching out into eyewear and shoes, we wanted to know how their personal style is evolving too. While Ayala cops to “wearing more black” while Timberlake professes: “I find that every year that goes by my clothing gets more and more simple. You just get things that are durable and wearable—that’s where I’m going.”

MEIN GOTT IM HIMMEL: Christoph may co-star with R-Pattz

If there's a name that would make any drama sound all the sweeter, it's Christoph Waltz. The man danced through Inglourious Basterds with his charismatic villain Col Hans Landa, and now it looks like he's found his next devilish role. According to Deadline Hollywood, Waltz is in talks to star with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in Water for Elephants.

The feature has been in the works since 2007, and recently saw Pattinson and Penn circling. But Penn looks to be out as Christoph waltzes in -- and I'm betting the movie will be all the better for it. Pattinson will play a kid who drops out of veterinary school when financial turmoil descends, and joins a crappy, 2nd-rate traveling circus. He falls for the star performer (Witherspoon), but there's a catch -- she's married to "a dangerous paranoid schizophrenic animal trainer who is as mean to his wife as he is to the circus creatures." With Penn, okay that could be good. But with Waltz as the creepy psycho? You know there will be some delightful layers to that performance.

Overall, however, I can't imagine how this will play out. Waltz will be delightfully creepy, that's for sure, and while Pattinson has his famous vampire role, he's also got a lot of weirdo gigs under his belt. But I'm dying to see Witherspoon, and am really hoping that she channels some of the less-mainstream work of her past mixed with a harder, stranger adult edge. If anyone can pull it out of her, I'd say it's Waltz.

Oh, dear God. Don't toy with my emotions, Cinematical. I WOULD DIE. JUST DIE. [/jack mcfarland]

Met your lovely co-star Yvonne Strahovski - here in Australia – recently; she must be a delight to work with? Not to discount Sarah Lancaster – your sexy on-screen squeeze!

You talk about a diva! Oh My God!....Just kidding, just kidding! Yvonne is such a sweetheart. We hit it off right away and she really makes me giggle for no apparent reason. I just told her today what a ball of sunshine she is. I might have been joking about Yvonne being a diva but seriously Lancaster...all I ever hear about is her amazing resume and how she'd be happy to help me with my acting sometime. I hope my humor is translating. Seriously, Lancaster is the best and I have to say that I think I've actually grown on her. I liked her right away but it took her a while to appreciate the fact that I never stop talking, even when she's trying to read a book in between scenes. Once in a while she'll put on her headphones but unfortunately for her, I speak really loud.

Jon Gosselin, TLC reach settlement in lawsuit; money will be used to buy more Ed Hardy shirts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- The TLC network has reached a settlement with reality TV star Jon Gosselin over a breach of contract lawsuit.

The network sued Gosselin in Montgomery County, Md., Circuit Court in October. Gosselin also filed a countersuit, claiming TLC violated Pennsylvania's child labor laws in filming "Jon & Kate Plus 8" about the Pennsylvania family with eight children.

The network says that all terms of the settlement are confidential and the whole Gosselin family remains under contract.

Mark Jay Heller, Gosselin's attorney, says the settlement was filed Wednesday and Gosselin did not appear in court.

Heller did not disclose details, but said all litigation has ended and he hopes "this new adventure for TLC and the Gosselins is a much more joyful journey."

Jay Harrington signs on for NBC pilot
'Better Off Ted' star boards 'Nathan vs. Nurture'

"Better Off Ted" star Jay Harrington has decided he's better off finding a new gig.
Thesp has been cast in the lead of NBC's comedy pilot "Nathan vs. Nurture." Casting is another indicator that bubble show "Ted" isn't likely to come back.

On "Nathan vs. Nurture," Harrington will play Nathan, a heart surgeon who discovers his biological parents -- and his underachieving siblings.

David Guarascio and Moses Port are behind the sitcom, while James Burrows is directing. Sony Pictures TV is the studio."Ted" earned top critical praise, but wasn't able to attract many viewers during its two brief seasons on ABC. Show starred Harrington as the employee of a mega corporation.Harrington's other credits include "Private Practice," "Coupling," "The Inside" and the telepic "Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy."As is normal for thesps whose shows have technically not been canceled, "Nathan vs. Nurture" is in second position for Harrington's services -- but with "Ted" not expected to return, that isn't likely to be an issue."Numbers" star David Krumholtz is in a similar situation, having recently been cast in Fox's IRS-themed comedy pilot from Imagine TV and Ron Howard.


So to recap, both Jay Harrington (Ted) and Andrea Anders (Linda) have new pilots lined up for the fall season.

LA Times profile of Vidhu Vinod Chopra; director making 1st English movie w/Mickey Rourke

Vidhu Vinod Chopra straddles Bollywood, Hollywood

His India-made '3 Idiots' is a smash. Now the filmmaker is leasing in Beverly Hills. Next up: his first movie in English.

James Cameron's "Avatar" may have recently become the biggest moneymaker in movie history, but there's another film that's quietly been breaking box-office records. That would be Vidhu Vinod Chopra's "3 Idiots," which now tops the list of highest-grossing Bollywood films, bringing in more than $80 million worldwide.

Despite his film's success, Chopra, a writer-director-producer, says he feels like "a kid out of film school." Granted, few kids out of film school would be able to lease a large house in Beverly Hills, score representation with ICM's Jeff Berg or greenlight projects in India over a cup of tea, as Chopra is inclined to do. But now, the man who sits atop a filmmaking empire based on the outskirts of Mumbai is looking to replicate some of that success stateside.

In India, Chopra, 53, wields the clout of a Steven Spielberg. He has written and/or directed about a dozen since his 1981 feature film debut, "Sazaye Maut" ("Death Penalty"), a crime thriller. His films have focused on terrorism ("Mission Kashmir") and the turbulence of British-run India ("1942: A Love Story"). But he has also done successful comedic dramas, such as "Munna Bhai MBBS," about a thief pretending to be a doctor to please his father. Whatever the genre, Chopra is known for bringing a sophisticated sentimental sensibility to his films, with a focus on family, honor and tradition -- elements that have historically resonated with Indian audiences.

"3 Idiots," which was released internationally through Reliance Big Pictures on Christmas Day, earned more than $52 million during its first 10 days in theaters. Outside of India, the movie, which was made for $8 million, has brought in about $16 million, with a record-setting $6.5 million coming from the U.S., where it is currently playing in about 50 cinemas, including the Culver Plaza Theatres in Culver City.

Liam Gallagher to Peter Kay after Brits: 'Listen up fat fuck…'

Oasis man hits back at Brit Awards host over 'knobhead' gag

Liam Gallagher has hit back at Brit Awards 2010 host Peter Kay for calling him a "knobhead" at last night's (February 16) ceremony.

Kay criticised Gallagher after he had left the stage following his speech for winning the Brit Album Of 30 Years award for the 1995 Oasis album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory'.

Writing about the comment on his Twitter.com/liamgallagher account, Gallagher chastised the Bolton-born comic for not insulting him to his face.

"Listen up fat fuck," he wrote. "As a real northerner I was brought up 2 say shit 2 people's faces not behind their back. Live forever LG"

Gallagher had an eventful night at the Brits. As well as picking up his award – which he threw into the audience – the singer also gave an insightful backstage interview where he insinuated that somebody else at the awards had had an argument with him. He was then heard saying that he wanted to get "loads of class A drugs" as the interview ended.

 If you're wondering,  he says, "Listen kids, I wanna thank Bonehead, Guigs, Alan White and the best fucking fans in the world, live forever"

What cause could possibly bring Morrissey and Mos Def together? A group named Vote Latino have pulled off that feat, by asking musicians to contribute to a new compilation album, which is designed to urge Latino citizens in the U.S. to participate in the 2010 Census.

The album compiled by Vote Latino works as a kind of friendly bribe—if people pledge to fill out the 2010 U.S. Census Form, they will be given a chance to download a free album that contains tracks by a wide variety of artists. Pitbull, Ruben Blades and Rodrigo y Gabriela are among the other artists taking part.

Jimi Hendrix 'Rock Band' game to be released this year

Jimi Hendrix is to get his own version of the Rock Band computer game, it has been revealed.

The late guitar legend's stepsister Janie Hendrix revealed the news to the LA Times – saying that the game would be released before the end of 2010. No further details have been released.

Janie Hendrix signed a contract with Sony Music last year, with the company vowing to make the music of Hendrix "available through every type of media".

Green Day are set to launch their own Rock Band game this year, while The Beatles' edition came out last year.


Original article here. It's way TL;DR for ONTD folks but for Hendrix fans, it's an interview with his stepsister, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott about Hendrix's new album "Valleys of Neptune" and how far they are willing to go to put his legacy/memory in order. Really good read.

what's your favorite Hendrix song, ONTD?

Well, that was unexpected.


It has been announced on the official A7X site today:

"I want our fans to know that with Jimmy in our hearts, our journey to record has officially began. Jimmy helped leave this world an amazing gift and now it's our job to make sure to deliver that gift to our fans. We asked Jimmy's all time favorite drummer Mike Portnoy to record on behalf of him. Mike said it would be an honor and without question that’s what Jim would have wanted. Its comforting to us that someone like Mike, who is undoubtedly revered as one of the best drummers in the world, held such respect and adoration for the Rev's abilities. Even though it will never be the same without our brother by our side, his essence lives in our hearts and through the music he helped create. He was a legend before any of the success or any of that bullshit and we are fucking excited to lay this down for our fans, and especially for Jimmy.

-Avenged Sevenfold."

Phyllis Barbour-Nesmith, Ex-Wife of Former Monkee Mike Nesmith, Passes Away at 63

title or description
Phyllis and Mike Nesmith, circa 1967

Phyllis Barbour-Nesmith, ex-wife of former wool hat-wearing Monkee Michael Nesmith, died Saturday from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).

Israeli-born photographer and Mike Nesmith "baby momma" Nurit Wilde broke the news on the Strange Dave radio show recently. After meeting through mutual friend Peter Tork, Wilde and Nesmith had an affair in the late '60s (Wilde gave birth to Nesmith's second son, Jason, in Los Angeles on August 7th, 1968). Wife Phyllis was home recovering from a horrific automobile accident during this time.

Phyllis and Mike divorced in 1972, two years after the birth of Nesmith's fourth child (Phyllis' third): a daughter, Jessica.

Full interview with Nurit Wilde is located at the Source.

:( RIP Phyllis. She was only 63, the same age as my dad. Too young. Also, if you listen to the interview at the source, be warned: Strange Dave is a douche and is very insensitive to Nurit and the news. So you may be left with the urge to punch things (inanimate objects only, plzkthx).

Vera Wang must love Snooki as much as we do! All her models were sporting her kooky pouf!

Vera Wang complemented her gorgeous Fall 2010 collection on Feb. 16 with the ultimate juxtaposition – Snooki poufs! I thought poufs were relegated to sweaty nights at Karma replete with fist pumps and cartwheels. I didn’t think they went with chiffon and fabulous jeweled necklaces. But, Vera sure thinks they do. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that she opted for this ‘do but in our heads, we like to think that no one is immune to the charms of the Jersey Shore, not even Vera.

Kim Kardashian: Feuding with J-Woww?

Causing a bit of a stir (no surprise there) it is being reported that Jenni “JWoww” Farley was the cause for the delay of Kim Kardashian’s clothing line debut at New York Fashion Week.

According to reports, the “Jersey Shore” star showed up to view the new collection, and the press all flocked to her, putting a hold on the start of Kim’s show which irritated the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” babe.
Jenny screams out...

Jillian Sued Again

Biggest Loser
trainer Jillian Michaels could be in big trouble.

The third lawsuit against the Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control pill supplement was filed late Tuesday in Los Angeles County Court.

Kathy Hensley claims the diet pills contain a "potentially lethal" ingredient called citrus aurantium, which can cause high blood pressure and cardiac issues in rare instances.

In addition to suing Michaels, Hensley names the pills' maker Thin Care, Basic Research and Walgreens. She's suing for less than $5,000.

After the first suit was filed, Michaels, 36, told the new issue of Us Weekly in a statement that the claims against her pills -- which contain coffee bean extract and guarana -- are "entirely without merit.

"I stand behind all of my products," she added.

ThinCare also shot back to Us, "We are confident we will prevail."

I guess I don't really understand. Don''t a lot of pills, medicines, whatever have "side effects" or things that can happen rarely?


Damn Shaun White, that's a whole...notha....level.

Tonight's the Men's Olympics Snowboarding Halfpipe event. Have you heard of Shawn White's personal superpipe in which he compressed the training equivalent of years into a day, mastering insane new tricks that I can't even wrap my brain around?

The 550-foot long half pipe is located 7 miles from Silverton, which is built around Silverton mountain: a ski resort with the most advanced terrain of any resort in America, with no groomed runs, and only one lift chair. It was constructed out of snow from the surrounding inclines, and get this: To pile up the snow—250,000 cubic yards worth—Red Bull took one of their private helicopters around and dropped about 30 satchels of explosives that weighed 25 pounds each into surrounding inclines, triggering slides that would gather up at the bottom. They hired Frank Welsh, the world's best pipe shaper, to carve out the final shape. Unlike regular resort pipes, which are comprised of man made and natural snow, this pipe's uniform material meant it didn't chunk off as others might.

Next, Red Bull constructed a foam pit from 8,000 pounds of steel and about 7,000 foam blocks that Shawn could flip into when trying new rotational combinations like his his Double McTwist. They hauled up the thing on a truck and then when the truck couldn't get any further, snow cats. At one point the foam threw back some stored energy from his fall and he chipped the bone in his ankle, so it's not like the danger was completely gone. But a lot of it was. Enough that Shawn would learn new tricks never before performed, in a matter of hours. By his reckoning, it compressed his learning curve "by years".

Shawn appears to be air lifted to the practice site by private helicopter and shuttled to the top of it by snowmobile, of which I saw a pair.

I saw a clip of Shawn at the Grand Prix the other day and I thought to myself, it'll take a miracle for anyone to touch this guy at the half pipe today. Sure, luck is a factor, but If there's anything an olympic halfpipe athlete can do to to make his own luck, it's to make his own private superpipe in the secret wilds of Colorado.

pretty much, I love Rush

Family Matters The Complete 1st Season on DVD for June 2010 Release



Back in 2005-2006, there had been unconfirmed reports of a "best-of" DVD release for Family Matters, a single-disc "favorites" title which was supposedly meant to test the waters and see if there were enough fans out there to warrant season set releases. Such a release never did materialize, and fans have always wondered why the show was missing on DVD. In a September 2008 live online chat with Warner studio execs, hosted by our friends at the Home Theater Forum, the program was brought up in a question. The reply from the studio was: "Family Matters is a title that has always been on our list, but related costs have prevented it thus far and we're working to get around those issues, if possible. MORE TO COME." At last, we're pleased to tell you that "more" is here!

This morning Warner Home Video has formally announced that Family Matters - The Complete 1st Season is coming to DVD at last, on June 8th. The show's rookie year in 1989-90 included 22 episodes starring Reginald VelJohnson, Kellie Shanygne Williams, Darius McCrary, JoMarie Payton, Rosetta LeNoire, Jaimee Foxworth, Telma Hopkins and (starting with the show's 12th episode) Jaleel White as "Steve Urkel". Guest stars include Ron Glass (Barney Miller, Firefly) and Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager, Samantha Who?). The DVD release will come on 3 discs, for $29.98 SRP.

UPDATE: Warner has now provided a studio description of the release, and a thumbnail-sized picture of the package art, and we've got both of those below. Also, Amazon has added a listing for this title, and while it isn't accepting pre-orders just yet, it should be soon, so keep an eye on it! Warner's info also touts the fact that the show ranks in the top 10 on the TVShowsOnDVD.com list of most requested unreleased shows, so congratulations...YOU helped make this release happen. "Did *I* do that?" Yes, YOU did!

Film - The Old Guard

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Reunite at Warner Bros

Remember those heady days of the late 1990s, when Ben Affleck and Matt Damon rose from indie origins to become Hollywood's golden boys? They were supposed to save us all with their flair for writing, directing, and acting. They were the hot new thing! The new era! Project Greenlight, the savior of new voices! But then ... what? Bennifer, I guess. I don't know. Damon has certainly done solid work in front of the camera, and Affleck has slowly made a name for himself behind it. It's just not what we expected.

But now happy days might be here again. Variety reports that Affleck and Damon are in talks with Warner Bros to set up a first look production deal with the studio. They are uniting to form an as-yet unnamed shingle, and have developed a very good relationship with Warner Bros. Damon has filmed The Informant, Invictus and Hereafter with them (the latter two bringing him under Warner Bros' happy elder statesman, Clint Eastwood), and Affleck has The Town. All the ingredients are there for a magical and powerful working relationship.

No official announcement has been made, but the possibilities are certainly exciting. Damon and Affleck have certainly run the gauntlet of Hollywood stardom, failures, and successes now, and to see them come full circle and reunite is really cool. I can't wait to see the projects that come of this big collaboration. Could we expect a Good Will Hunting 2?

I like this idea! I love them together. Almost as much as I love that Matt Damon's character on Will & Grace had a boyfriend named Ben. Heh.
