Courtney Love thinks Lily Allen is "lame" for not letting her wear a Chanel dress.

The Hole singer was left unimpressed recently when the 'Not Fair' pop star made a deal with the luxury fashion house which stopped Courtney from wearing a couture gown to the BRIT Awards earlier this week.

She said: "I wanted a Chanel couture dress but Lily Allen blocked them out. And that's lame, because I remember J-Lo had a lock out on Valentino one year but she shared with me."

Fashion has always been important to the 45-year-old rock chick - who addressed Oxford University student union recently.

Courtney spent her time at the prestigious college laughing at how "sl***y" the female academics were, while the males looked like fictional wizard Harry Potter.

She quipped to Absolute Radio: "It was so fun. I had so much fun there. You wouldn't believe it. There were people who looked like Harry Potter. And they seriously took the whole rowing thing to a new level. Some girls were dressed in Laura Ashley, but some girls looked really sl***y. I was into it. It was really exciting, I was really thrilled."


Drama Spoils Hilton's Birthday Bash

Paris Hilton's 29th birthday party was thrown into chaos when her boyfriend Doug Reinhardt got into a fight with her pal Brandon Davis.

Onlookers were stunned after the heiress and former The Hills star Reinhardt began arguing in the middle of New York hot spot Tea Room on Thursday.

A furious Hilton walked off, and moments later Reinhardt was at the centre of another screaming match with oil heir Brandon Davis, who was once romantically linked to the socialite.

Reinhardt was said to have been angry after Davis arrived unexpectedly and appeared to be inebriated, according to The New York Post.

A source tells the publication, "One minute, Paris and Doug were looking all loved up; the next minute, they started bickering. Doug didn't seem happy about all the attention she was getting. Paris started to pout and gave him some girly punches in the back before storming off.

"The next minute, Doug was shouting at Brandon. The music was so loud that we couldn't hear what he was saying, but he then got Brandon thrown out of the door."

But the birthday girl patched things up with her boyfriend and ended the night with a smile on her face.

The insider adds, "She and Doug were looking all romantic by the end of the night."


Whitney Houston’s Diva Moment in Australia

Whitney Houston doesn't like to be kept waiting. On her arrival at the Brisbane, Australia airport Saturday morning, Houston exploded when her Mercedes Benz limo took a whole two minutes to rendezvous with her in front of the terminal.

"This is b******t," she loudly complained to anyone who would listen. One fan, standing nearby, got it even worse. When a man nicely suggested Whitney take off her hat and sunglasses and enjoy the beautiful morning, Houston reportedly told him to mind his own f*****g business.

Houston has two appearances in the Brisbane area this week. We're assuming her shows will start right on time!


Johnny Depp Makes Surprise Appearance At Alice In Wonderland Fan Event

The anticipation is building for the release of Tim Burton’s fantastical Alice in Wonderland and fans and of the movie and Radaronline.com were treated to a sneak preview of the film AND a special surprise appearance from Johnny Depp Friday night in Hollywood.

Looking dashing in his trademark tinted glasses and a scarf, Johnny Depp was greeted by deafening screams as he stood on stage at the Alice in Wonderland Fan Event at the Hollywood and Highland complex.

Depp plays the Mad Hatter in the film and he was joined by director Tim Burton and fellow co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska, Crispin Glover, Michael Sheen, Matt Lucas and Anne Hathaway.

Sponsored by MySpace, the event featured performances from four featured artists who performed their songs from the soundtrack “Almost Alice.” Rocking out to a packed audience, 3OH!3, Metro Station, Kerli and Never Shout Never ramped up the anticipation for the appearance of the film’s stars.

The 3D fantasy adventure Alice in Wonderland hits theaters on March 5.


18 years 18 years got one of your kids got you for 18 years

According to court documents, rapper/reality TV star Flavor Flav (real name: William Drayton, Jr.) owes Angie Parker, the mother of three of his kids, almost $65,000 in back child support. Flav has an outstanding balance of $63,458 to the Albany County Child Support collection unit.

In July 2008, Parker filed a motion to modify the child support judgment because the original, in place since 1996, covered just two of their three children. (Not sure if Parker also mentioned the fact that 14 years have passed and Flav achieved new fame and earning-potential after becoming a VH1 “reality” show spectacle.) She won an appeal in January increasing Flav’s payments from $117 to $837.72 a week for child support, plus tuition for the kids’ private school, retroactive to the 2008 filing.

“The judgment is recent as I was just made aware of it,” Flav said, adding, “I’ll certainly be addressing it. However, I’ve made payments on my children’s tuition, and have made direct payment to the mother outside of the court order.”

Although the $63,000 figure does make Flav sound like a pretty serious deadbeat, his statement actually has the ring of truth. $837.72 a week over the course of a year and a half totals just over $65,000. So, the retroactive nature of the new child support order automatically created the delinquency.

Not sure what Flav’s status is with his other child support orders. He has seven kids (including the three with Parker) by three different women. The youngest is three years old. The oldest, who is in her 20s, has two children of her own – making Flav (age 50) a grandfather.

Arrested 'Flavor' Star -- 'I Did What I Had To Do'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hotlanta -- the "Flavor of Love" star who got cuffed in Georgia last month for alleged child cruelty -- claims she did what she had to do ... but her son was never harmed in the violent incident that got her arrested.

Hotlanta -- aka 29-year-old Nicole Essigmann (right) -- tells TMZ that she never laid a hand on her 4-year-old son. The whole incident was because her baby daddy -- a guy named Jerry Robinson -- got her mother (left) in a headlock.

According to Nicole, she was going with her mom -- Jill Essigmann -- to pick up her son from Robinson's home. When her mom went in to get the child, Nicole claims there was some kind of physical altercation and Robinson emerged with her mother in a headlock.

Nicole tells TMZ: "I did what I had to do ... Anybody in my shoes would have done the same thing if they saw their mom in a headlock. I laid the smackdown."

According to Nicole, the reason for the child abuse charge is because her son witnessed the violent incident.

Both Nicole and her mother were arrested on two counts of simple battery. Nicole was also charged with child cruelty. The case is still being investigated.


'Heroes' Star Charged with DUI

Adrian Pasdar -- who played Senator Nathan Petrelli on "Heroes" -- has officially been charged with DUI following his arrest last month in L.A.

The 44-year-old actor -- who's married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines -- was initially pulled over on January 27 after cops say they clocked him going 90 MPH on the 405 Freeway.

After conducting a field sobriety test, cops eventually arrested Pasdar and held him on $15,000 bail.

Pasdar is due back in court on February 24 and faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine


Jane Fonda's Plastic Surgery Confession: Eyes, Chin & Neck Done

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jane Fonda has taken a very relaxed and upfront approach to the plastic surgery she had earlier this month on her eye bags and jawline and has blogged about it.

On her official website this week Jane, 72, wrote:

Bob Evans complimented me on my new, short haircut and I said, "Thanks. I just had some 'work' done on my chin and neck and had the bags taken away from under my eyes so I decided it would be good to get a new hair cut so people will think it's my new hair." He thought that was so funny he actually toasted me for doing what he said he'd never heard anyone do before: admit they'd had work done. I was planning on blogging about it anyway so who cares? I'm writing a book about aging so I couldn't very well NOT talk about it. It's been 2 weeks. I was in front of the camera all day yesterday and was photographed at Eve Ensler's luncheon 9 days after the procedure so, obviously, it went well. I swore in 2000 I'd never have anything done again but this year I got tired of not looking like how I feel and I wanted a more refined chin line like I used to have so I changed my mind. I'm still a little swollen but not much and what pleases me is that I won't looked pulled or weird...or tired all the time. And my crows feet are still alive and well. I wish I'd been brave enough to not do anything but, instead, I chose to be a somewhat more glamorous grandma.

Ensler's luncheon was on February 11. Below is a photo of Fonda on January 31 of this year, just a day or two before surgery, and then of her from this week with fitness guru Denise Austin.


Brangelina's Domestic Bliss Too Picture-Perfect?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

We're shocked -- shocked! -- to discover that two of the biggest stars in the world might be trying to tame the media beast that's repeatedly ripped them to shreds.

This week, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie all but silenced breakup reports with a series of adorable family outings in Venice, where she's shooting the thriller "The Tourist" with Johnny Depp.

Now, the New York Post is accusing the mega-famous flames of setting up the "happy family" scenes "like a military operation" in order to prove that everything is just dandy in Jolie-Pitt land.

"They are usually very shy about being photographed, but now they're making a point of being seen in public as a happy family unit," posits a source. "They're making a statement. They want the world to know the reports are wrong and they are strong."

Hey, this seems like a smart strategy to us, especially when it yields pictures of Zahara playfully sticking out her tongue at her dad and Shiloh sporting a kicky, big-eared monkey hat.

But not every photo op has yielded the supposedly desired solid-as-a-rock story line. On Thursday, the Internet was left scratching its head as to which tot was riding the canals with the A-list parental units and sister Zee.

Several outlets identified the tyke as 18-month-old Knox. But closer inspection reveals that it was actually 3-year-old Shiloh, as evidenced by her size (compared to her smaller doppelganger sibling) and missing tooth. It seems her shorter- and less tow-headed-looking locks threw everyone off.

Is Stephen Baldwin racist by calling Obama “homey”?

Huffington Post put this story in the Entertainment section, and I have no idea why. It’s a video of born-again Christian and conservative mouthpiece Stephen Baldwin (of the Baldwin brothers, and of The Usual Suspects), bitching about President Obama. Baldwin was at CPAC, I think, which is the annual Conservative conference which features lots of high-profile speakers and lots of bashing of liberals. Anyway, in this little clip, Stephen Baldwin told ABC reporter Jonathan Karl “I’m gonna be real straight with you. I am not happy about the way things are. I pray for President Obama every single day. But tell you what. Homey made this bed, now he has got to lay in it.” As HuffPo breathlessly announces, “’Homey’ is short for ‘homeboy,’ slang for a fellow gang member.” Thank you, HuffPo. I never would have known that!

Obviously, some people are all, like, “That’s so racist!” And maybe it is, but mostly I think it just seems douchey and out-of-touch. Do “gang members” still call each other “homey”? And the fact that Baldwin thought he was cutting down or disrespecting Obama by calling him such a passé term makes Baldwin look like an idiot, in my opinion. And yes, Baldwin would have never called a white liberal president “homey”. But that seems to me beside the point. Anyway, Entertainment section, blah, blah, was it racist?


Sexual napalm back with unfunny douche

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

John Mayer’s “sexual napalm”—otherwise known as Jessica Simpson—hit the town in Los Angeles last night, and the seedy singer was the last thing on the blonde’s mind.

It seems Jess was more than happy to focus all her attention on her supposed former flame…Dane Cook!

Simpson watched her rumored ex-lover perform at the Laugh Factory Tuesday, and she was all smiles.

“She came in to see [Dane] with two girls and two guys,” says an eyewitness. “They snuck her into the back door right before the show began, and she sat at a table on the floor level.”

Our spy says Simpson, dressed in a Rolling Stones T-shirt with jeans and heels, looked very natural and relaxed as she laughed, dined on cheese pizza and drank Stella Artois beer.

Was the admiration mutual between Jess and Dane? It seems like Simpson has been the media’s mini Jennifer Aniston lately, always being portrayed as the lonesome older sis after splitting with Tony Romo.

Well, we hear Dane was happy to have old flame Jess there and even sent over a round of drinks to her table. He then invited her backstage after the show, natch.

“After the first round of drinks, the waitress went over and said, ‘This round is on Dane,’” dishes our source. “Jessica seemed so excited. Once the show ended, Simpson was taken upstairs to the VIP area where she and Dane flirted and had another round of beers.

“The staff left, but Jessica, Dane and her four friends stayed in the VIP section after hours.”

But not everyone had a great evening.

“Jessica didn’t tip the waitress at all!” adds our sassy insider. “Dane paid for the first round of drinks and then the Laugh Factory comped the rest of the check…But she’s still supposed to leave a tip, and she didn’t leave anything.”

Maybe she was so focused on Dane she simply forgot, right?

Vancouver, British Columbia -- When Alexandra Zaretsky takes to the ice in Olympic ice-dancing competition Friday, she'll look deep into her partner's eyes as they skate the "Tango Romantica."

But not too deep. That's because her partner is her brother, 26-year-old Roman Zaretsky. "We try to find ways to kind of look through—or look a little up, or a little sideways," says Ms. Zaretsky. "Hey, you gotta act."

Ford Does Country with a Hip Hop Flair

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Colt Ford considers himself a country musician. He never intended to be known as a country rapper.

“I didn’t do it on purpose,” the 40-year-old Athens, Ga., native said. “It wasn’t like I was sitting there trying to create a master plan. I truly consider myself a country musician ... People have to put a label on it. I’m a country artist; that’s what I do. I just am what I am.”

But Ford is getting a reputation as a country singer who raps. Just listen to “Buck ‘Em” — a song adopted by the Professional Bull Riders Inc. — or “Huntin’ the World” and “Left You in the Dust” and you’ll understand why. The topics may be country — bull riding, hunting, NASCAR — but Ford performs them with a definite hip hop style.

Daniel Craig sporting wedding ring?

Daniel Craig has sparked rumours he's secretly married his longterm girlfriend after the British actor was spotted wearing a ring on his wedding finger.

The James Bond star has been dating Satsuki Mitchell for six years, but has always refused to comment on his personal life.

Gossips were sent into a frenzy earlier this week when Craig was seen strolling through Brentwood, California wearing a gold band on his left hand - and insiders are convinced he and Mitchell are now husband and wife.

A source tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "We all suspect they have got married. He has always said Satsuki is the one but he didn’t want a big showbiz wedding, that would be his worst nightmare. He’s very private."

The couple was rumoured to have become engaged in 2008 after Mitchell was seen sporting a diamond ring on her wedding finger.

Kristen Stewart and Eddie Redmayne's Road Trip Romance

Kristen Stewart and Eddie Redmayne’s Road Trip Romance

We’re with Kristen in Beverly Hills!  lol

the most beautiful, perfect, precious girl in the whole entire world

Before the “Twilight” phenomenon, a just turned 17-year-old Kristen Stewart was in the post-Katrina New Orleans area filming a sensitive, warm and romantic road trip film called The Yellow Handkerchief  in which she plays a beautiful but rejected-by-guys teen ready for a new adventure in life.

At her side in the film is a very cute Brit actor named Eddie Redmayne (of The Other Boleyn Girl) who was surprised to be cast as a quirky, vagabond young American guy from Oklahoma!

These two share a few kisses in the film and were both nervous and anxious to do their “getting-to-know-you” scenes justice. We wanted to know which scenes intimidated Kristen and what she learned from bigtime actor William Hurt on the project.

Why were she and Eddie worried about their final kiss in the movie? You'll find out.

Kristen told us that she didn’t get to party in New Orleans because she was very underage (you might feel her pain).  

We think Kristen is as sensitive as the character she plays in the film. When she talks about her teen character Martine, is she sort of talking about herself? Check out what else we learned about acting and this touching road trip movie from Kristen and her cute co-star!

Q: This was probably your first big lead role in a film. Was that an adjustment to play the lead at that time?

Kristen: Anytime you have to play a person who is not yourself, you’re stepping out of a comfort zone but that’s what we do and if the role is bigger that’s just more to chew on and that’s always good.

Eddie: There is more of a sense of responsibility. What was great about this film is that it’s an ensemble piece in the sense that it really is about the four of us, I’m certain Kristen and I felt in incredibly safe hands having William (Hurt) and Maria (Bello) around us and because of the intensity of the film, having three of us in a car for three months shooting, we ended up being close as a trio which is wonderful because any fears or problems you have, you have the other two to turn to.

She's going to change everything. I just go to sleep every night so happy to know that there's such an incredible, rare, beautiful creature like her in the world.

Becki Newton: Fierce Bitch to Virgin Social Worker

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pilot season's most sought-after comedy actress Becki Newton has committed to star in NBC's dramedy pilot "Love Bites."

"Ugly Betty" standout Newton had been in hot demand since ABC announced last month that "Betty" is being canceled.

She received 11 offers, ultimately settling on "Love Bites."

The romantic dramedy, from "Sex and the City" alumna Cindy Chupack, is in the vein of anthology series "Love, American Style" and chronicles several loosely connected, modern stories of love, sex, marriage and dating.

Newton will play Annie, an optimistic, infectiously bubbly social worker who is a virgin.


I like that she picked a character that's the polar opposite of the role that made her. Amanda Tanen-Sommers-Simmons may have been the fiercest lady on TV, but I'm sure Newton will do wonderfully as the sweet/innocent type.

The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

Ad Rant: Old Spice knows what women want: a man on a horse!

Normally we feature ads we hate, but this one deserves a different tune. Freud first asked the question, and now Old Spice answers it with their pitch-perfect series of "manmercials." What do women want? They want a man on a horse, of course! And they want one with a bare chest, the physique of a former NFL wide receiver, and enough self-assurance to say with complete authority that whoever your current man happens to be, "Sadly, he isn't me. But if he stopped using ladies' bodywash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he's me."

In short, what women want is the actor Isaiah Mustafa, a TV actor and former NFL-er, with just a towel around his waist in "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" ad.

Women want him. Men want to be him. It's win-win. And it's wildly funny.

Renee Zellweger Refuses To Pack On The Pounds For "Bridget Jones 3"

Hollywood starlet Renee Zellweger isn't keen on packing on the pounds again for the third installment of a "Bridget Jones" film after producers have told her she needs to gain 30 pounds on her svelte figure.  Zellweger, who was recently seen at the Berlin Film Festival with a mysterious "bump" in her midsection, is trying to persuade producers to downsize her character Bridget to look more like her.

Internet rumors are reporting Zellweger fears that plumping up to a zaftig everyday woman might put a strain on her relationship with boyfriend and Hollywood heartthrob Bradley Cooper.  The actress blames the demise of her previous relationship with Jack White of the White Stripes due to her having to gain weight in the first two Bridget Jones installments.

Previous reports say that the Texas native has even suggested wearing a fat suit while filming the third film, which she has denied. 

According to Zellweger's IMDB page, an untitled Bridget Jones production is currently in development.

How does a super successful movie star slash average high school cheerleader kickoff her birthday? If you're Dakota Fanning, you keep it lowkey.

Fanning celebrated her sweet 16 Saturday night at Beverly Hills hotspot Villa Blanca, an eyewitness tells E! News exclusively. The New Moon star, whose actual birthday is Tuesday, was spotted enjoying dinner with 40 guests at the fancy eatery.

Fanning's party arrived around 7 p.m., which included her parents, family, and several friends, and continued celebrating until almost 11 p.m. "She looked like she was having fun and was really cool," the source says of the dateless star. "She was talking to her friends and laughing all night."

E! News caught up with Fanning after enjoying her three-layer birthday cake with chocolate mouse, and when asked if she'd be sporting a driver's license in the near future, she replied: "I don't even have permit."

So we won't be seeing her on the road anytime soon, but Dakota can be seen later this year in The Runaways, and the third Twilight flick, Eclipse.

OK Go lead singer is against 'embedding disabled' videos on Youtube


Published: February 19, 2010

Melbourne, Australia

MY band is famous for music videos. We direct them ourselves or with the help of friends, we shoot them on shoestring budgets and, like our songs, albums and concerts, we see them as creative works and not as our record company’s marketing tool.

In 2006 we made a video of us dancing on treadmills for our song “Here It Goes Again.” We shot it at my sister’s house without telling EMI, our record company, and posted it on the fledgling YouTube without EMI’s permission. Technically, this put us afoul of our contract, since we need our record company’s approval to distribute copies of the songs that they finance. It also exposed YouTube to all sorts of liability for streaming an EMI recording across the globe. But back then record companies saw videos as advertisements, so if my band wanted to produce them, and if YouTube wanted to help people watch them, EMI wasn’t going to get in the way.

Hilary Duff outside of the four seasons and leaving Hawaii with engagment ring on finger 2/20

Hilary shows her new diamond engagement ring to the public for the first time ever, the day after the proposal, February 19 outside the Four Seasons Hotel in Hawaii.

Is it necessary to say how huge it is? From afar, in the proposal candids, it already looked humongous. Now that we can see it up-close, then I can’t think of a bigger word than humongous.

Fiance Mike Comrie proposed the day before. We can pretty much predict how expensive the ring could’ve been. Mike, himself is a multi-millionaire through his own & family’s career.

Hilary sported a white cardigan over a gray top, a Louis Vuitton handbag and white-frame sunglasses.

I am so happy for these two they seem great together! I wish them best, looking hot hilary. Also that is quite the rock, it's huge!

What's This Hullaballoo over AMC Theatres and 'Alice in Wonderland'?

You've probably heard by now: AMC Theatres is threatening to boycott Disney's Alice in Wonderland. Earlier in the week, some European theater chains made similar threats. Why? Because Disney is planning to shorten the theatrical-to-DVD release window from 17 weeks to 12 weeks, which would mean that the movie will hit DVD around June 1st. Why does AMC care, given that none of its theaters are likely to actually keep the movie for 12 weeks? Well, presumably if people know that a movie is going to be available for home viewing in just a little while, they're less likely to invest in a trip to the theater. If you assume -- rationally -- that a given movie will ultimately make only a certain amount of money, shortening the DVD window decreases distributors' slice of the pie -- or so the theater owners argue.

Collapse )

Do they really think that boycotting it entirely--i.e., making no money at all--is better than maybe, possibly making less than they might have done if the DVD wasn't so soon? REALLY? Ugh, stupid. A lot of people seem to be excited about this movie, and there's no WAY they'll just wait three months for the DVD. They're really underestimating fangirls. Whatever, I tend to prefer Regal anyway.

Tila Tequila tours Australia. No one cares.


For those of you who don't know Tila Tequila - and I'm guessing that number would be quite high considering the few people that turned out for her gig at HQ on Thursday night - let me explain.

She's the bisexual US reality TV star who has recently shot to fame for being engaged to tragic Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson at the time of her sudden death.

Tila began her career as a MySpace celebrity and soon found herself with her own TV show A Shot Of Love With Tila Tequila in which both men and women vied for her affections. . . which she seemed to share with all.

A google search for Tila attracts many colourful ways to describe her, my favourite being the term ``fame-whore'' which seems to be used quite a bit.

She's now a singer and jetted into town for a nightclub appearance at HQ, where she found herself performing to literally tens of people.

Knowing she was heading to Adelaide, I organised for a quick catch-up, but was asked to send a photographer to the airport (presumably to make it more like a papparazzi ambush) then rendezvous for our interviewette later at the gig.

When Tila arrived in Adelaide on her budget JetStar flight, she was flanked by an entourage of five men, doubtless to shield her from a gaggle of fans. Unfortunately no one seemed to know, or care, about her at the airport.

Then she managed to score a special escort to her hotel - a motorcade of burly bikers.

Flash forward to Tila's gig at HQ. After waiting till about 12.30am, only to have my exclusive audience cancelled, and witnessing first-hand the Tila Tequila Trainwreck, I gave up and decided maybe my life would not be poorer for missing our wee chat. Still, I am disappointed to have missed her performance of Like A Virgin.

I just got back from seeing this in NYC at the Cherry Lane Theater...and it was awesome. Roday was good, and Weston was fucking amazing. It was hilarious, sad, shocking and vulgar at the same time.

Jennifer Love Hewitt celebrating her 31st birthday 2/21

Celebrating in style, Jennifer Love Hewitt rang in her 31st birthday with an 80’s themed party in Toluca Lake on Sunday (February 21).

All decked out in her party appropriate attire, the “Ghost Whisperer” actress smiled as she joined a few friends while exiting her house to hop into an awaiting ride.

The birthday bash comes amidst continuing rumors that Miss Love Hewitt is planning to elope with her co-star beau Jamie Kennedy.

A source recently told press: “Jennifer and Jamie are definitely planning on getting married, but she wants to elope because she was so humiliated over her broken engagement [to Ross McCall].”

Save your pennies, ONTD: Abbey Road off the market

Abbey Road Studios not for sale

EMI Group Ltd., which owns the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London where the Beatles recorded their last album, says the studios are not for sale after all.

Reports in Britain surfaced this week that the London studios were being put on the block.

But a report by Bloomberg News on Sunday says EMI wants to retain the studio and feels it might benefit from plans to revive the iconic recording studio.

According to Bloomberg, EMI sent out a statement over the weekend saying it had been in talks with "interested and appropriate third parties" since mid-November to help revitalize the studios and the plans call for a "substantial injection of new capital."

Reports about an impending sale sparked an outcry in Britain and around the world to save the studios.
The news even caused the National Trust charity to indicate that it would consider placing the site under its aegis for protection.

In fact, EMI says it likes the idea of a National Trust designation.

"EMI welcomes the reported acceleration of English Heritage's plans to list Abbey Road and supports such a listing as an appropriate way of protecting our world-famous music heritage site," the company said in its statement.

British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber also waded into the fray, saying on Friday that he was considering purchasing the site, which has three recording studios.

Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, who lives less than a kilometre from the studio in St. John's Wood, said it should be saved but did not divulge whether he'd consider buying it.


Well, color me surprised!

I imagine this partnership idea will get quite a few bites. Seems like it should have been the most obvious choice for EMI anyway. Not sure I see Sir Paul doing it, though.

Travis Barker gets in a fight with the Paparazzi

click the pic to view the video

TMZ has obtained crazy video of Travis Barker and his friends threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas restaurant -- spitting at the photogs, hitting the camera and, allegedly, slashing a photog's tires.

In the video, Travis starts out by screaming, "Where's your homeboy?" As we first reported, Travis got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant -- but neither of the two photogs in the video are that guy.

The photogs claim one of their phones was stolen. When one of the photogs confronts Travis' friends about the phone, a guy can be heard saying, "F**king snitch fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, a photog noticed his tires were slashed.

The photogs told cops they did not want to press charges. No arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken.

Travis' rep could not be reached for comment.

No Johnny Weir at gala? Not much of a gala at all.

No Johnny Weir at gala? Not much of a gala at all.
Sun Feb 21, 2010 10:11 am EST
By Maggie Hendricks

Word came to Yahoo! Sports that Johnny Weir has not been invited to Saturday's Olympic gala, the exhibition that allows figure skaters to let loose and have fun on the ice. Skating officials can invite whom they want, but they didn't invite Weir, which means that the international sporting community will be denied this:

That's right: Johnny Weir's exhibition skate is set to Lady Gaga's "Poker Face." The world needs to see his art.

Since Weir placed sixth, it would be a stretch for him to get invited to the gala, but let's face it: Any gala without Weir sounds like a pretty lame party. If the outcry is loud enough, perhaps skating officials will rethink their Weir snub. The Johnny Weir War Wagon starts here. WAR, JOHNNY!

Ryan Phillippe, Abbie Cornish Split

It's over between actress Abbie Cornish and boyfriend Ryan Phillippe, her spokesperson confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

"Abbie ended the relationship with Ryan and she moved out of their home," the rep tells PEOPLE. On Sunday, the actress was spotted removing her belongings from the house she shared with Phillippe while he was running errands and toy shopping with children with Ava and Deacon.

The split follows months of tabloid speculation that Phillippe has been unfaithful to Cornish – regularly hitting the nightclubs and being linked to other women. When asked about the cause of the break-up and whether Phillippe cheated on Cornish, her rep replied, "No comment."

Cornish, 27, and Phillippe, 35, met in 2006 on the set of the film, Stop-Loss, and survived intense media scrutiny following Phillippe’s divorce from Reese Witherspoon. Cornish has been in Vancouver for the last seven months shooting the film, Sucker Punch.

Reps for Phillippe could not be reached for comment.

Ali Stephens Doesn’t Walk Many Shows Since She Refuses to Starve Herself

Backstage last night before Erin Wasson's RVCA show at ABC Carpet and Home, model Ali Stephens recalled fond memories of working with Alexander McQueen. She walked in his spring 2009 show. "He was amazing. He was so nice. You could tell he really cared about people, too, and that he cared about the girls," she said. "I don’t ever remember any bad experience with him at all, or anything like that. He wouldn’t be the type of guy who would be like, ‘Oh if you don’t fit that outfit, you’re out of the show.'" Does that happen a lot with designers? "Uh, yeah!" Stephens said. "I mean it depends [on the designer], but that could get me into a whole mess of trouble."

Stephens, who is very tall, very thin, and very gorgeous, said it has happened to her: "Oh yeah. Of course." She continued, "I’m not the typical skinny — I have hips. I love my body but I’m not one of the girls willing to starve themselves for fashion, so I do what shows I can but I don’t, pressure myself to fit into the sample sizes." Because of this Stephens only walks a few shows a season now. "I do good shows but I'm not a show girl. I was in the beginning of my career. But I grew up," she said. "I'm 18." We reminded her that's still young. "I know — I haven’t grown up. What am I talking about?" she said, laughing. "But it’s hard for these girls, you know? You start out when you’re 16 and your body is, you know, naturally a rail and then you grow up and it’s just unhealthy to make it a rail when it’s not."

Stephens has no current plans to go to Milan or London Fashion Weeks. She was hesitant to admit that European shows demanded skinnier models. "No, it’s true. It is. It makes no sense to hide it," she said. "You have to speak out about it. Europe is definitely, I think, skinnier. But it all just really depends on the designer and their aesthetic, which I respect. So I understand if I’m not somebody’s ideal. You know, so whatever works for them. But it’s always important to remember that models are humans. We’re not just ghosts."

You Can't Keep The Crystal Enchantress Of The Ice Down For Long.

Even though Johnny Weir didn't get a medal on Thursday night, he still didn't let that rain on his rhinestone and sequins parade. Johnny drizzled his glamour all over a Budweiser Olympics party (for his sake, I hope they also served Andre) in Vancouver last night.

Johnny killed those hos wearing the same black jumpsuit my mother wore to her company holiday party in 1993 (it was scandalous times). She said she was going for an "En Vogue" look. Never gonna git it!
