Someone from Beyonce's past has stepped forward to stoke the flames of the Beyonce-doesn't-write-her-songs fire. Rob Fusari was the producer of Destiny's Child's first single and hit "No, No, No" and he reveals that working with Mathew Knowles and his daughter sometimes meant not always getting full credit. In an interview with Billboard.com, Fusari talks about how disappointed he was when he saw Beyonce recount a story to Barbara Walters about how she came up with the Destiny's Child song, "Bootylicious."

NEWLY-SINGLE Cheryl Cole is about to open up to Jonathan Ross on his chat show.
The X Factor judge, who officially announced her split from her love rat husband Ashley yesterday, looks set to reveal all about the break up on TV.
She was booked to appear on BBC1's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on March 12 as promotion for her new single Parachute, and she is still set to show up.
Geordie Cheryl, 26, has spoken frankly to Wossy in the past and went on his show in September, 2008, after Ashley's first round of cheating with hairdresser Aimee Walton was revealed.
Back then she displayed the new ring he'd bought her and told the host: "I was tempted to put it back on - in his head!"
She later added: "There's no such thing as a private life in this industry. I spoke openly about my marriage in the past and it's come back to hit me in the face...I learnt from the past that you shouldn't do that."
Meanwhile, her X Factor boss Simon Cowell is going to be on hand to help Cheryl as she deals with her marriage breakdown.
His spokesman Max Clifford told This Morning: "It's going to be very, very difficult for her to find privacy but if anyone can help her to do that it will be Simon Cowell while he's out there in America and while she's out there in America."

Our insiders say Simon and Ellen aren't even trying to hide it. Ellen can't stand what she believes is Simon's cruelty toward contestants. And, we're told, Simon actually enjoys pissing Ellen off with his blistering critiques.
It all started badly when Simon showed up late for Ellen's first week of "A.I." taping and made her wait around. Producers separated the two -- who began the season sitting side-by-side -- but the tension has gotten worse.
But business is business. "A.I." is beating the Olympics, and ratings for Ellen's show skyrocketed last week. In Hollywood, contempt has its upside.

Evan Lysacek shows off his gold medal as he leaves the Larry King Live studios in Los Angeles on Tuesday (February 23).
The 24-year-old figure skater recently received a tweet from Dancing With the Stars‘ Cheryl Burke and suggested that he join the show. ”I would love to try Dancing With the Stars,” he told EW in an email.
“I was a proud audience member (and cheerleader) as my friends Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Ohno danced their way to the mirrorball trophy,” Evan said. “All I have heard from everyone that has done the show is what a blast it is. That could be a good way for me to do something extremely challenging, but also fun to celebrate my Olympic win.”

Looks like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has clamped down hard on "The Hurt Locker" co-producer Nicolas Chartier for sending out an e-mail blast that urged colleagues to campaign aggressively for his movie to win the Oscar for best picture while it also trashed a rival film.
Chartier just issued a follow-up e-mail apologizing for his "extremely inappropriate" e-mail, which violated the Academy Awards' rules, adding, "My naivete, ignorance of the rules and plain stupidity as a first-time nominee is not an excuse for this behavior and I strongly regret it."

Nick Simmons, son of Gene Simmons, done got caught.
The American company Radical Publishing has announced that it halted the production and distribution of Nick Simmons' Incarnate comic book series on Wednesday evening, amid allegations that the comic plagiarized Tite Kubo's Bleach manga. According to Radical, "We are taking this matter seriously and making efforts now to contact the publishers of the works in question in an effort to resolve this matter." Shueisha publishes Bleach in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan, while Viz Media publishes the manga in North America.
The Wikipedia entry for Nick Simmons now includes a section detailing "Accusations of Plagiarism" that lists eight manga -- the insanely popular Hellsing, One Piece and Vampire Hunter D, among them -- and an amateur artist from DeviantART. There are assertions that, in addition to panel compositions, character designs and poses, Simmons lifted dialogue and "plot segments" from other works. A group calling for legal action against the 21-year-old Simmons has begun on Facebook, where some members have declared today "Bleach Protection Day."
Scroll through the post here for all the gathered evidence. Overlays show outright tracing (color panels=Simmons, b/w=Bleach). What an asshole!

Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds will play CG cavemen in DreamWorks Animation's The Croods, a comedy that pits a prehistoric patriarch (Cage) against a forward-thinking outsider (Reynolds).
According to Variety, Cage will voice Crug, who cautiously leads his family beyond his comfort zone after an earthquake destroys their home. While attempting to navigate the dangerous and unfamiliar world, Crug butts heads with Reynolds' nomad, who charms Crug's clan -- especially his eldest daughter -- with his (relatively) modern-minded ways.

Sting with Gulnara Karimova at a fashion show in Uzbekistan. Photograph: Getty
Once again we must ponder the question "how much money is enough?", inspired by reports that Sting accepted between £1m and £2m to perform for the glory of the brutal despotic regime in Uzbekistan.
The services of Sting - whose personal fortune is estimated well north of £150m - were engaged by Gulnara Karimova, the daughter and anointed heir of dictator Islam Karimov. To explore Islam Karimov's human rights record in full would take too long: suffice to say he is condemned approximately every 10 minutes by organizations from the UN to Amnesty, accused of such delights as boiling his enemies, slaughtering his poverty-stricken people when they protest, and conscripting armies of children for slave labour. Oh, and the Aral Sea on which his country sits - once the world's fourth biggest lake - has lost 80% of its volume, partly as a result of Karimov siphoning it off to intensively irrigate his remote desert cotton fields.
Whether he is a perfect fit for self-styled eco-warrior and humanitarian Sting is a matter for you to decide: what is beyond dispute is that in October, the former Police frontman agreed to travel to Tashkent and effectively headline Gulnara Karimova's alleged arts festival.
Unfortunately, people have now found out about the jaunt, and so many of them have misunderstood the reasoning behind it as financially motivated that Sting has been forced to issue a statement.
"I played in Uzbekistan a few months ago," he begins. "The concert was organized by the president's daughter and I believe sponsored by Unicef."
You can believe it all you like, Sting, but it's absolute cobblers - Lost in Showbiz has checked it out with Unicef, who tactfully describe themselves as "quite surprised" by your claim.

Wanda Sykes called in to Rosie O’Donnell’s radio show on SiriusXM and the two discussed a range of topics including meeting her wife Alex on vacation in the gay mecca of Fire Island, getting married in California, her unplanned official coming out at a Prop 8 rally and the adversity found within the black community with regard to living a gay life. She talks about how her decision to come out at the rally was literally made on the spot.
While Wanda didn’t feel any pressure from the gay community to come out, Rosie admits that she felt “stalked” by former Advocate Editor-in-Chief, Judy Wieder. “She’d be at every event I was at and she’d say “I really want to talk to you about coming out. When are you going to come out?” It felt like pressure from the gay community, not really anyone else.’
Wanda also reveals that her family’s reaction to her coming out has been “not cool. We’re still working on it. They’re getting better with it. I know they love me, BUT….” They talk about the “double stigma” of being gay in the black community how religion generally f*cks everything up. Her mother even said to her “if it ever gets out, I hope I’m dead.”

American Idol defeated the Olympics again last night in head-to-head competition between 8p-10p. American Idol averaged an 8.6 rating with adults 18-49 and 22.8 million viewers, easily besting the Olympics which averaged a 4.9 rating for adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers from 8p-10p.
From 8pm-11pm NBC averaged a 5.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 19.5 million viewers.
NBC had it’s brief shining moment last Wednesday where a huge medal day for team USA at the Vancouver games trumped American Idol, marking the first time American Idol had been bested in six years. After a streak of about 222 consecutive wins American Idol’s streak ended. At 2-0, is another streak beginning?

Johnny Weir held a press conference in Vancouver yesterday in response to controversy that has arisen in Quebec and elsewhere over remarks made by sportscasters about his persona and his costumes.
Said Weir: "I'm not somebody to cry over something or to be weak about something. I felt very defiant when I saw these comments. It wasn't these two men criticizing my skating, it was them criticizing me as a person, and that was something that really, frankly, pissed me off...I hope more kids can grow up the same way I did and more kids can feel the freedom that I feel to be themselves and to express themselves and that's the most important thing."
The skater added: "I'm always thought of the sparkly flamboyant character that wore a crown of roses...nobody knows me. I think masculinity is what you believe it to be. To me, masculinity is all my perception. I think masculinity and femininity is something that's very old fashioned. There's a whole new generation of people that aren't defined by their sex or their race or who they like to sleep with. I think as a person you know what your values are and what you believe in and I that''s the most important thing."
As an addendum, Weir tweeted the remark inset above before heading off to sleep last night.
"Shutter Island" 's financial triumph over the weekend marks the first honest-to-goodness big-budget Hollywood success for Michelle Williams in over a decade.

Cameron addressed how he designed his film to reach a global audience by appealing to their emotional reaction to events in the film--like when the Na'vis' tree was torched by the evil corporate entity and fell on them as they fled for their lives. Previously he had used his relatively small budget documentaries to address environmental themes by presenting facts and figures to a self-selecting audience.
The theme of the moving starting and ending with Jake Sully's avatar opening his eyes is symbolic. "The whole movie is about changing perceptions," said Cameron, who added that we all suffer from nature deficit disorder. "Avatar asked us all to be avatars for the earth," said Cameron, who described himself as a "nature geek," with a lifelong interest in creatures, flora and fauna--particularly underwater.
"We live in denial," said Cameron. "All the negative curves are happening, temperature is rising, the ocean is acidifying. We have an arrogance and sense of impotence. We don't believe we can make change and affect something as vast as atmosphere and oceans."
With Avatar, he wanted to portray that feeling for the planet's challenges is a step in the right direction. "Hope is fertile emotional soil to create action and heightened political awareness," said Cameron. "I wanted to create characters and have the audience walk in their shoes."
Although he had top technology and the best artists working on his film, he kept realizing that nature offered up the best ideas. "Every time we came up with a great idea, nature had beat us," said Cameron. "Nature is better than the best visual artist on the planet."
Cameron mentioned a screening of Avatar in Ecuador for the country's indigenous people, the Shuar of the Amazon, whose life is endangered by the government's oil drilling--a plight akin to the Na'vi's struggle. The tribal elders who saw the movie said that while they identified with the Na'vi, the Shuar don't believe in violence and have never fought to keep their land. "I've been schooled," said Cameron, earnestly. He also commended New Zealand for finding a way to incorporate their native Maori into the country's culture.
Noting the irony of having the event on the Fox lot because of the company's right wing leanings, Cameron said the people who run corporations are not his targets. He has a bigger problem with the corporate lobbying in the government. As for his own corporate parent, he said Fox was far more interested in profit than ideology. "I never had any pressure re ideology," said Cameron, though he was told to tone down some of his environmental message, but he didn't cave.
Cameron believes the future of the environment depends on a technological answer and a social rearrangement. "We need smart energy," he said, to a round of applause.
The green Hollywood event ended with a standing ovation for Cameron and a video starring Leonardo DiCaprio and his celeb pals urging people to email their senators to pass the clean energy bill.

It’s nothing new to have a celebrity flash their buns to the paparazzi, and last night (February 24) it happened to Ke$ha.
The “Blah Blah Blah” babe was hopping into her chauffeured car after attending the Shockwaves NME Awards when her dress crept up over her bum, giving shutterbugs a glimpse at her derrière.
In related news, a new video of Ke$ha has been making its rounds on the internet, and though it’s not a sex video, it’s just as embarrassing.
The footage is of a 13-year-old Ke$ha singing Radiohead’s “Karma Police” at her school’s talent show. She’s definitely come a long way since those days.

Continuing her UK tour, lady gaga's bus stopped in Liverpool, England last night (February 24) for a killer concert.
The “Bad Romance” songstress took the stage at Liverpool Arena in front of a sold-out crowd and gave the people what they wanted- a dance-infused, sex-fueled romp.
While staying in Liverpool, GaGa decided to rent three different hotel suites because she was having an “identity crisis.”
An insider told press, “Lady Gaga loves drama, instead of hiring bedrooms at one of the city’s five star hotels she decided to hire suites at three of Liverpool’s most expensive. She demanded to be driven through the secret back entrance of her hotel away from snooping eyes.”
“Later she sent a fleet of silver Mercedes to the hotel entrance and to a nearby restaurant as a decoy to fool fans and paparazzi. Meanwhile, she stayed holed up in her suite enjoying tea and toast. Lady Gaga didn’t want to be seen by anyone as she was having an identity crisis. She said she wasn’t looking or feeling like Gaga.”
When it comes to "Paranormal Activity," nothing should surprise us anymore. This was a movie that was shot for $10,000 and became a $100-million-plus box-office powerhouse. And it did all that with no stars and no brand pedigree -- just a brilliant "America demanded it" marketing campaign.
So the fact that a number of emerging genre directors are being considered to direct the second picture in the haunted-house franchise (tentatively titled "Paranormal Activity 2" but probably soon to be renamed) makes perfect sense.

Eve is having one hell of a February as reports surfaced that the first lady of Ruff Ryders owes more than $357,000 in delinquent state and federal taxes.Records show that the rapper turned actress owes the state of California, who filed a lien against her on Jan. 29, 2009; $29,059.
This will make the second lien filed since 2008 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. This may explain why she has decided to sell her Hollywood Hills home, which according to published reports was built only 5 years ago. In addition to Los Angeles County, Eve also reportedly owes the IRS a total of more than $271,684 for liens filed since 2008.
In addition to financial legal woes, Eve was facing some criminal legal woes when she had reportedly been named in an on-going investigation involving foreign corruption with millions of dollars being illegally transferred into her alleged boyfriend's American banking account. Eve addressed the rumors on Twitter stating:
“None of that is true. Please don't believe everything you read on the internet. it's negative and I don't fuck wit negativity. People trynna test me. Now listening 2 Sizzla "praise ye Jah" and "head over hills. Thank ya'll 4 the support!!!!! Life is crazy 4 everyone and we all get tested.”
Although things are looking rough, Eve is still in high hopes for 2010.
She recently announced in January that she left Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records in search of a new label. Although label-less, the Philly bred MC is still busy making music.
Currently she is appearing on the remix for “My Chick's Bad,” the second single off Ludacris's Battle of the Sexes and preparing to release a new album titled Lip Lock which will feature appearances by Ruff Ryders and production by Swizz Beatz.

Lindsay Lohan thinks her name on clothes makes those cost cheaper. The actress-turned designer understands that her personal problems and the fact she’s been to rehab a few times disconsider her a lot.
She told America’s OK! magazine:
I’m the first to say that in certain situations, my name will cheapen things because that’s what people have made of it.”
The 23-year-old had to deny plenty of rumours she had been blacklisted from New York Fashion Week. Besides, she suffered the embarrassment of her designs for fashion house Emanuel Ungaro getting criticized by fashion experts.
However, designing is what she finds very attractive for her. She even calls the effect it has on her as “therapeutic”. Creating outfits gives Lindsay the opportunity to express herself.
Fashion is something that’s so expressive in so many ways – within film, within music, within daily life. It expresses how you feel that day and the character you’re playing. I really appreciate and respect it. It’s something that’s not only a hobby of mine, but it makes me feel good. It’s really therapeutic for me, actually – the designs.”
Brendan Burke, son of Toronto Maple Leafs/The US Olympic Hockey Team's General Manager Brian Burke passed away after a car accident in early February. You can read the story about Brendan coming out to his family here, and check out the ONTD post that followed here. The Burke family has been mentioned a few times on ONTD, and commenters really seemed to connect with Brendan's story, so here's an update on how his family's doing:
"I love the man's attitude," Trevor MacNeil is saying. MacNeil is a hockey guy, a forward on the Cutting Edges, a team of gay players in a Vancouver adult league. "For Brian Burke to say, Yes, I drive a truck and I hunt, but Brendan's my son and I love him no matter what—well, for me that was shocking and great. It gives you a warm feeling knowing someone like him can be so affirmative. He's trying to make being gay in sports a nonissue. When I heard about his son's death and found links to some articles, that's when I learned Brendan had come out. I didn't realize Brendan was born in Vancouver."

Chad Kroger vs. the Facebook pickle
Remember when we introduced you to this illustrious and yummy looking pickle? The pickle gained such popularity when fans pit it against Nickelback, in their Facebook fan page. Now Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger wants to shut it down. No fair.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Current Olympians and others in the ski community are mourning the loss of professional free skier C.R. Johnson, who died in a fall while skiing a steep chute at California's Squaw Valley.
Jim Rogers, a member of the Lake Tahoe-area resort's ski patrol, said Johnson was skiing with a group of friends Wednesday when he fell while trying to negotiate a "very, very tight, rocky area."
The 26-year-old Johnson fell face first, then spun around and struck the back of his head on rocks. He was wearing a helmet at the time.
Ski patrol members were called shortly before 2 p.m. but were unable to revive him. Placer County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Ausnow said Johnson died on the slopes.

Sandra Bullock’s Chocolate Craving
She’s always been a red carpet stunner, but Sandra Bullock says her obsession with chocolate may make things a bit difficult come Oscar night.

Vancouver is not fit to hold the Winter Olympics.
Far from being a question of sour grapes, Russian commentators were already expressing their reservations as to the integrity of the Vancouver Lobby being able to host the Olympic Games weeks before the start. After all the IOC was starting to fire off in all directions before the first aircraft arrived.
We already have the case of a Russian skier being hounded to produce a urine sample after qualifying for a race, and if she had given the sample, she would not have had the possibility of entering the following round. Natalya Korosteleva was asked to provide a urine sample during a half-hour pause between the quarter-finals and semi-finals of a skiing event. “This seems against all the rules,” she stated, as she refused to have the sample taken, alleging that if she did, she would not have had time to continue in the next phase. Why her?
We all know Canada has problems with the future lines drawn on Arctic maps and we all know Canada lives in the shadow of its larger neighbour to the south. The abject cruelty shown by Canadian soldiers in international conflicts is scantily referred to, as indeed is the utter incapacity of this county to host a major international event, due to its inferiority complex, born of a trauma being the skinny and weakling bro to a beefy United States and a colonial outpost to the United Kingdom, whose Queen smiles happily from Canadian postage stamps.
Maybe it is this which makes the Canadians so…retentive, or cowardly. So it is not exactly a huge surprise to have international skating experts from the four corners of the Earth criticising the decision to award the Men’s figure skating Gold medal to the US athlete Evan Lysacekv over the reigning Olympic Champion Evgeny Plushenko, whose superior performance was inexplicably ignored.
As Plushenko explains, “I did a great short program but did not get the marks I deserved. When I asked why, they told me I was skating early and they had to retain top marks for the last group…Then in the free program, I was the last to skate, did everything clean and still didn’t get the marks”.
Everybody who knows anything about Olympic skating, Winter Olympic sports and international politics will infer from the pitiful and dangerous conditions provided by the Canadian authorities, which already caused one death, that Vancouver is mutton dressed as lamb. Take off the outer veneer and the stench is horrific.
It is a surprise that any Russian athlete would wish to remain in that sort of environment for a second longer.
This is just amusing now.

Showing off her photogenic side, Lily Allen attended a photocall to launch Vintage at Goodwood in Chichester, England on Thursday (February 25).
The “Smile” singer looked strikingly beautiful in a strapless red gown and black shawl while posing for the pictures ahead of the 3 day festival that celebrates the fashion and music of past decades in Goodwood.
Just last night, Ms Allen hit up the NME Awards in London and took home the “Giving It Back Fan Award.”
During the singer’s acceptance speech, she declared that she intends to focus on other projects in the immediate future but will return to recording eventually. “I’m not making another album for a bit,” she said. But no need to worry Lily fans, the songstress confirmed she’d make another album down the line.

A new teaser trailer for Why Did I Get Married Too? has been released online at SheKnows.com.
This is the third trailer to be released from the film. Last month, a longer theatrical trailer had been released, and last November another teaser trailer had been released. Each trailer shows slightly different footage from the film, which hits U.S. theaters on April 2.
Filmmaker Roland Emmerich is most recognizable as that guy who likes to blow up the world. "Armageddon," "The Day After Tomorrow," "Independence Day," last year's "2012"... dude's just got a thing for global catastrophes. He's branching out some for his next project however, looking to the past for inspiration from the Bard himself, William Shakespeare.
As we've known for a bit, Emmerich will next tackle "Anonymous," which explores the controversial theory that the famed playwright did not, in fact, write his own work. The belief is that the works credited to Shakespeare were actually written by Edward de Vere, of Oxford. IMDb currently has the movie slated for a 2010 release, but we've known little more than that until now.
Emmerich revealed in an interview with Empire Online that his cast is starting to fill out. Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewlis and Rhys Ifans are all on board; Redgrave will play Queen Elizabeth, "Harry Potter" star Thewlis will play William Cecil "old and young," and Ifans will play the Earl of Oxford, the controversial figure who is believed to be the real author of the Bard's plays.

Who do you think wrote the plays: Shakespeare or this Edward character? Do you think Emmerich will find a way to play up the world in this period thriller?

(CNN) -- Actor Andrew Koenig, missing since February 14, was found dead in Vancouver, British Colombia, Thursday, a source close to the family told CNN.
The body of the former "Growing Pains" star was found in a park, according to the source, who spoke to Koenig's father after Koenig was informed of the discovery.
The source asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter.
Koenig, 41, was reported missing by his parents after he missed a flight to Los Angeles from Vancouver last week.
ETA: A press conference is being held at 8 EST/5 PST and his parents are expected to be there.
No, it's not the sequel to Brokeback, it's a movie called "Source Code" directed by Duncan Jones.
There’s been plenty of speculation recently as to what director Duncan Jones would be doing for a follow-up to his excellent film Moon. been announced to helm the new thriller Source Code.
Source Code is about a soldier named Colter (Gyllenhaal) who awakens on a passenger train in another man’s body with no idea how he got there. He begins to explore his surroundings and finds a bomb… which blows up, killing him and everyone else on board. The end.
Kidding… after the explosion Colter awakens in darkness, strapped to a harness with a monitor in front of him. He discovers that he’s part of a mission of sorts attempting to stop those responsible for the train bombing before they can strike again. With little else to go on Colter is sent back to the train seventeen minutes before the explosion. He’ll be sent back again and again, always for seventeen minutes, each time bringing him closer to the bomber(s) and closer to a truth about himself.
I'm not sure how big Russell's role will be but according to his website:
"The reason for the re-scheduling is that Russell has landed a role in the Sci-fi action movie, Source Code. The film is set to be directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) and star Jake Gyllenhaal (Jarhead), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) and Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye). Originally scheduled to start shooting after the Australian tour, Russell's shoot dates were moved-up when the producers decided to expand his role in the film with additional scenes and dialogue. Russell must now report to set on February 23rd until the end of March.

The Twilight actress is back in town for her latest film, I'm With Cancer, in which she'll act alongside Seth Rogen and her Eclipse costar Bryce Dallas Howard.
Anna is familiar with Vancouver after filming two Twilight movies in the city last year, and maybe she can score some tickets to the tail end of the Olympics before the best supporting actress nominee heads to the Oscars on March 7.

Cosmopolitan magazine's April cover girl is Lady Gaga. She opens up to the magazine about her spectacular success, her devoted fans and the love advice that ONLY she would give. Photo credit: Kenneth Willardt
On her ex:
"I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail. I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee a the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me."
On her career:
"I ate shit for so long, being told I didn't fit the mold and that I was 'too pop' or 'too theater'…I've always been delusionally ambitious to the point where people don't understand me."
There are tons of questions we want to ask Lady Gaga. After all, she’s one of the most fascinating music artists we’ve ever seen. And unlike most people who are given that title, she actually manages to live up to it—she’s a true artist—while still singing ultracatchy pop songs that make it impossible not to dance. She’s kind of a genius… but she’s also kind of bizarre. Who is she, really? We plan to find out.

Colin Farrell, star of Neil Jordan’s film Ondine, explains how he calmed down, grew up — and became a different actor
Colin Farrell is not who you think he is. He is not the Dublin-born A-lister, the star of Miami Vice and Phone Booth, who was once in danger of becoming a Hollywood cliché, with a sex tape, a debilitating drink and drug addiction and an expanding stable of model girlfriends. Nor is he the garrulous back-slapping interviewee, proudly boasting about boozin’, bangin’ and birds, living the high life of O’Riley.
No, this Farrell, this Colin 2.0, is, he says, reformed and reborn. The 33-year-old has not, he says, touched drugs in more than three years (since a summer 2006 stint in rehab) and alcohol in nearly two. Instead he takes complex roles in character-based movies, has lengthy saunas in his LA home and speaks cautiously about his romance with the Polish actress Alicja Bachleda and of their five-month-old son, Henry.
In person, in the room of a quiet London mews hotel that is thick with the floating smoke of his incessantly chugged cigarettes, Farrell projects a mien of perpetual angst and self-deprecation (“You’re in for one of the more exciting periods of your life right now,” he warns, deadpan, at the outset). He is dressed all in black (denims, T-shirt, goatee) and speaks in rhetorical flourishes, in an often torrential rush of words and multi-clause emotional analyses. Mostly, he speaks of change.
“The past four years do feel like a different chapter in my own life because before that I had profoundly and aggressively resisted change until I realised that it was a stultifying case of arrested development that I was inflicting upon myself,” he begins, without drawing breath. “So with that in mind there’s been an acceptance of change — with parenthood, with settling down in Los Angeles, buying a house and not just living in hotels. It’s about trying to find a little bit more solidity.”

Agency News: Claire Danes Leaves ICM For WME, ICM Also Likely To Lose Rosario Dawson
ICM has just lost Claire Danes and may be about to lose Rosario Dawson. Danes, who'd been Carol Bodie's client, was spotted at WME the other day and is taking agency meetings. Dawson is still at the agency but also is "taking meetings" -- and believed heading for CAA.
Also, writer/director Billy Ray has fired his longtime Broder/ICM agent Bruce Kaufman to sign with CAA. Kaufman helped him become an in-demand screenwriter and then a writer/director. It's "a display of shocking ingratitude," one source outside ICM told me. "Evidently, Ray has to blame someone besides himself for why no one will finance his uncommercial dramas. What makes it even more ironic is that Ray's father was an agent, so you'd think he would have taught his son something about loyalty." Harsh.
Lily Allen has confirmed that she is retiring from music to work on various fashion projects.
The 'Smile' pop singer announced on Sky News this morning that her last concert will be at London's O2 on March 7.
Speaking alongside Wayne Hemingway, Allen revealed that she would be working on the designer's Vintage At Goodwood project and her own Lucy In Disguise range.
"I'm helping Wayne out with this first of all and then I'm opening up a shop with my sister and a couple of other people and I'm really busy," she said. "I'm in the office every day, sourcing clothes and getting really excited about my new venture."
Hemingway added: "She's here to bring fashion back in. She's got a new business called Lucy in Disguise, which is about vintage clothes democratising fashion, and that's what Vintage at Goodwood is about as well. It's about bringing music and fashion back together.
"The Sex Pistols couldn't have happened without Vivienne Westwood. The swinging '60s couldn't have happened without Carnaby Street. The New Romantics couldn't have happened without the Blitz Club. Now all we seem to have is music and no wonder the music industry isn't doing so well... You cannot separate fashion and music."
The L.A. County Coroner has released the drugs that were in Brittany Murphy's system when she died.
According to the report, "Multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine. L-methamphetamine was also present."
The report goes on, "It should be noted that the pattern of use of these medications suggest treatment of symptoms of a cold or other respiratory infection. Acetaminophen and hydrocodone are components of Vicodin. Chlorpheniramine is the active ingredient in some over-the-counter medications. L-methamphetamine is a component of some inhalers."
We broke the story that the Coroner believed Brittany had pneumonia and tried self-medicating with prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs ... and it ultimately proved fatal.
The report states, "The possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels of these medications cannot be discounted, especially in her weakened state. Therefore the manner of death is Accident."
UPDATE: There were 24 empty prescription bottles found at the scene for the following medications: prevacid, clonazepam, propranolol, vicoprofen, zolpidem, carbamazepine, klonopin, Ativan, hydorocodone (Vicodin) and multiple vitamins.
Also, three benzodiazapines found in her bloodstream did not match up with prescription bottles found in Brittany's name.

Part of the profits will be donated to the NGO Oxfam international to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
The print of the bag represents an old cartography of the island of Haiti and contents the message (written and signed by the actress) Supporting the people of Haiti
Scarlett wanted to show her commitment to the cause: “I’m delighted with this collaboration with Mango to promote a solidarity project which will benefit the fundation Oxfam International, who collaborates with the Haiti earthquake cause. Buying this bag I have specially designed for the ocassion, you will help to provide the people of Haiti with basic assistance, such as drinkable water.”

Shout! Factory's acquisitions team has been working overtime, it seems: they have scored another classic title for their DVD library in the form of Ghostwriter-Season 1. The studio hasn't formally announced the title yet, but we found out about it thanks to an Amazon pre-order listing that went up late yesterday. According to that entry, this will be a 5-disc set running 870 minutes long, at a cost of $34.95 SRP (but you can lock in your copy at a discont, of course). The release date is June 8. Package art and other details aren't available yet, but stay tuned and we'll keep you posted!
Can't wait for this one...Shout! Factory has done some really amazing DVD sets (Freaks and Geeks, My So-Called Life, It's Garry Shandling's Show, Sports Night) so they'll definitely do us Ghostwriter fans good.
This is what I'm hearing from Glee sources about Neil Patrick Harris' guest spot, which has been rumored for weeks but is now very much a done deal. In fact, as I type this to you, the script for Neil's awesome episode is being written—yee!—and one Fox insider tells me: "The fans will love it." So what will Neil play? Here's what I'm hearing:
Hold on to your track pants, Sue Sylvester! 'Cause one solid Glee insider tells me that Neil is playing a character who is "really funny and really mean." I'm told he will be "much more of the Dr. Horrible variety than Doogie Howser, M.D."
So it seems Glee's writers are smartly honing in on their comedy sweet spot: deliciously devious characters who can deliver those breathtaking LOL one-line zingers. (See: Jane Lynch, and now Molly Shannon, who is rumored to be playing an enemy to Sue.)
So where does Neil's guest spot now stand? "When the news first broke that Neil was coming on," one Fox insider says, "it really wasn't happening at that point and nothing was written. But things changed fast, as they do."
That said, we'll know more details when the ink on Neil's ep has dried. But the good news is that the ink has definitely dried on his contract, and we'll get the great flavors of NPH and Glee together in very late spring.
In other good Glee news: I'm told the Glee kids' White House gig is most definitely happening. "It's true and we're obviously very excited," says a source who works on the show.
And if you didn't hear, some of our Glee faves will also lend their voices to an episode of The Simpsons! Cory Monteith confirmed the news by tweeting: "Just recorded a guest spot for THE SIMPSONS. One of the best moments of my life thus far." Lea Michele followed up with: "Recorded an episode of The Simpsons today! SO cool!!!! Will let everyone know when it's gonna air! :)"
Who are you most looking forward to when Glee returns to Fox on April 13: Neil Patrick Harris? Molly Shannon? Olivia Newton-John? The cone bra Jane Lynch will rock for the Madonna episode? Or how about the Glee kids on The Simpsons? Comment below...

Beyonce is the celeb with the sexiest body - in the eyes of British women, that is.
But men prefer Hollywood actress Megan Fox's frame.
One in five Brit blokes voted for the Transformers star - also the woman they'd most like to sleep with - in a new survey to mark today's DVD release of her aptly titled flick Jennifer's Body.Nearly a quarter of females, though, felt Beyoncé has the best shape and assets such as boobs and legs.
And a third of men at least agreed that the singer has the best bottom - while putting Fox and Angelina Jolie joint first for cleavage appeal. Victoria Beckham's slimline figure was the worst for most of 2,000 people polled. Katie Price was named the least-attractive celebrity and Keira Knightley prettiest. But former Friends star Jennifer Aniston was the one 28% of men would like to marry - a category in which her ex Brad Pitt's current partner Jolie polled just 4%.

In Tim Burton's forthcoming 3D CGI-dipped take on Alice in Wonderland, Johnny Depp plays the Mad Hatter, looking like some sort of deranged mime in the trailer. And according to Depp, his version of the character got help from an unlikely place: the music of the unhinged Canadian indie-psych band Sunset Rubdown.
Depp dropped this particular bombshell in an interview with CBS News' "Early Show" (via the Tripwire): "I get musical inspiration for the characters. Like for example, there was a band-- actually, Terry Gilliam turned me on to this band-- called Sunset Rubdown. It was a great few songs on there that just defined the Hatter for me perfectly."
Somehow, the fact that Gilliam, the 69-year-old director of Brazil and Time Bandits, raves about Sunset Rubdown to his movie star buddies feels just perfect. Next thing you know, John Cleese will start publicly rhapsodizing about Xiu Xiu.

The production company has now completed the final draft of the script for this project and there is an official synopsis available for the project:
On the eve of WWI, the vibrant cities of Zurich and Vienna are the setting or a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery.
Fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung uses Sigmund Freud's talking cure on Sabina, and young Russian hysteric with whom he falls passionately in love. Sabina's emotional life begins to inform Jung's theories, and the esteemed Freud also grows intrigued by her. Relationships deepen between Jung and Freud, and between Jung and Sabina, who is brilliant despite her troubled mind. Impressed with Jung's results, Freud anoints him as his successor.
Finally, Jung pushes aside his ethics and gives into his feelings for Sabina, violating the doctor-patient relationship. Their sexual trust sets off a chain reaction of consequences. Freud and Jung begin to grow apart due to their clashing ideologies and Jung's illicit relationship with Sabina. Tortured, Jung breaks it off.
Becoming unbalanced, Sabina attacks Jung in his office before feeling to Geneva to become Freud's patient. Jung loses integrity in Freud's eyes by denying the affair, and this subterfuge also damages Sabina's credibility. The trio is torn. After sleeping together one last time, Jung and Sabina reach an understanding about their relationship. This time it is Sabina who decides she needs her freedom.
--The film is to be directed by David Cronenberg, his first film in 3 years. Christoph Waltz Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley are set to play the trio- with Knightley as Sabina, Waltz as Freud, and Fassbender as Jung.

Julianne Moore is a true rarity. It’s not just that her hair flames like no other star since Katharine Hepburn. Or that alone of her generation she seems impervious to middle age’s indignities – she is 50 this year. There’s something else. Having worked with dinosaurs in The Lost World and a cannibal in Hannibal, she is mainstream enough to be considered a genuine leading lady. But much of her most eye-catching work, often written for her by indie directors like Todd Haynes and Paul Thomas Anderson, is fiercely extreme in spirit.
Pornography, incest, erotica of various hues – hers would be bargepole roles for most actresses. But Moore isn’t most actresses. She is the closest the English language can boast has to a French actress. Hence Chloe.

Ice Cube Returns To Rap
Ice Cube is returning to music. The rap veteran - real name is O'Shea Jackson - has announced he will return to his roots as a gangsta rapper on his new studio album, which will be titled 'I Am The West'.The 40-year-old rapper broke the news of his return via a posting on his blog.He wrote: "I Am The West' is the name of my new record. After completing about 65 per cent of my music, this is the new perfect title. This s**t is cocky, no apologies, West Coast gangsta s**t. I can't help it. That's what I do."
The album marks a comeback for the rapper - whose musical output had slowed down considerably since turning his focus to acting - starring in films including 'Anaconda' and 'Three Kings'.
His last solo album 'Raw Footage' was released in 2008.Talking about when the new tracks are likely to be released, Ice said: "June seems too tight for a release, but July is very doable. We'll see how things go. "Now that I have my title, I can work on the concept of my photoshoot and artwork. I want to provide." Ice rose to fame as a member of the group NWA, before becoming the group's most successful solo rapper, releasing controversial album 'AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted' in 1990 and being a key figure in the California rap scene through the early nineties, when the West Coast and East Coast of the US were divided and seen as being 'at war' with each other.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Apolo Anton Ohno has kept information on his post-Vancouver future closer to his chest than any of his Winter Olympic medals, but finally it appears his golden career is about to end.
Ohno's Team USA colleague Simon Cho let things slip on Thursday afternoon, revealing by Twitter that the seven-time medalist is set to hang up his skates after the Games.
"Today was officially the last ice practice for Apolo Ohno," wrote Cho. "I'm honored to be included in the last chapter of his competitive skating career."
Cho and Ohno will be part of the American team in the 5,000-meter relay on Friday night, in what now seems certain to be Ohno's final race. He also will compete in the 500 earlier that night.
Ohno himself has not commented publicly on his plans and isn't expected to do so until after he wraps up competition on Friday night. Rumors surrounding his impending retirement have been circulating at the Pacific Coliseum since the start of the short-track competition.

Items on her to-do list include "learning to paint and cook, and to do Broadway shows and museums. And learn just to be at home and just watch television."
Beyoncé and rapper/producer hubby Jay-Z have been married for almost two years, and while there are no immediate plans for a baby, she does say, "Eventually. When it happens it happens... I definitely want a family. I'm too close to my mother, I have the best mother, you know. I can only hope the relationship I have with my mother, I can have with my kids whenever I decided to have them."
AJ asked if Jay-Z also wanted kids, to which Beyoncé replied, "You gotta ask Jay."
I think she's so cute in this interview! And I love how she and Jay are talking more openly about their relationship!
What do ya'll think? IDK I think MJ owns this song, even tho it's both their song or w/e. I couldn't find any English articles about that, only in Spanish and yeah I'm too lazy and sleepy to translate. But if ya'll are interested here is one link

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006)
Unlike those in Silsila the protaganists in Kabhi Alvida… don’t cop out in the end and return to their respective spouses. Instead they pick up the pieces and eventually get together. It was probably a first in our films. And while their first sexual encounter was a tad apologetic and guilt ridden, atleast director Karan Johar didn’t pretend it didn’t exist in their scheme of things.
Yes, I know they are disco-ing in this song, but the love scene is intercut with the disco-ing.

And also, according to US Figure Skating via this Twitter, fancy butch boy Evan Lysacek is NOT going to Worlds again this year. Good news for Johnny - maybe he can get some decent and fair scores in Turin.
Serious, slightly stubbly Johnny thanks you for your time.
Naomi Watts has perfected that casually chic New York style that so many women aspire to. She's had to. With a busy big-screen career and two kids under the age of three (sons Sasha and Kai with longtime love Liev Schreiber), she doesn't have time for fashion that isn't also functional. That might be why the Australian actress is drawn to the streamlined designs of Calvin Klein, whose runway collection she checked out during New York Fashion Week. We caught up with Watts at the show, and she revealed how real life impacts her wardrobe (think comfy shoes and purses big enough to hold her mommy gear), her admiration for the au naturel look, and how she's keeping her sartorial edge with a little help from a second-skin rock star staple.

Seriously, I would pay hundreds of dollars to taste her breasts for five minutes
Don’t look now California, but there’s another “Biblically Correct” beauty queen in your midst. Proving once again that some pretty girls should just give up on trying to engage in intelligent conversations and stick to smiles and nods (ie: Megan Fox), Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley has created a firestorm after telling FOX News’ 411 Column that not only should same sex couples be prohibited from getting married in the United States, they should also be put to death.

"In the last three or four years the internet's taken a stranglehold and killed off the myth of the rock star," Tom Meighan of Kasabian told Bangshowbiz last week. "You know when you used to buy records and there was a myth behind them? There's too much on blogs now and I think it's killed it off. There are so many rock stars writing these self-pitying blogs and it's not in the spirit of rock'n'roll."
The irony of giving such a headline-grabbing opinion to an internet-only news service seems to have been lost on Meighan, but as a singer clearly in thrall to the mystique of Bowie, Bolan and Björk, he makes a good point. For all the wrong reasons.
We are in danger of losing the enigma of the rock star: you only have to stand Grizzly Bear next to pop stars like Dizzee Rascal, Florence Welch, or Lady Gaga in her blowtorch bra to see that the mainstream has gazumped alt-rock in terms of retina-frying freakishness. Dolled up in Napoleon outfits for their last promo stint Kasabian seem like a throwback to a time when rock favoured the fantastical. A time before hair metal made dressing up seem corny, long before lad rock forced music to be "real", and long before Pitchfork made a star of the bearded troubadour.
