Disney restyles 'Rapunzel' to appeal to boys

With 'The Princess and the Frog' coming up short at the box office, the studio retools its next animated feature to lose the girly taint. Now it's called 'Tangled,' with a swashbuckling male lead.



Disney is wringing the pink out of its princess movies.

After the less-than-fairy-tale results for its most recent animated release, "The Princess and the Frog," executives at the Burbank studio believe they know why the acclaimed movie came up short at the box office.

Brace yourself: Boys didn't want to see a movie with "princess" in the title.

This time, Disney is taking measures to ensure that doesn't happen again. The studio renamed its next animated film with the girl-centric name "Rapunzel" to the less gender-specific "Tangled."

I dare say Mr. Sheffield has a right to smoke that cigar with pride. 

And, if you want to read more reviews - some are funny in both praise and dislike, they're popping up everywhere.  The Times (London's paper) gave the show 2 stars out of 5.  All the other secondary papers in the UK gave the show 3/5 or 4/5.  Like I said, mixed reviews.

Academy: Fawcett Was Skipped Because of Background in Television


Farrahgate continues tonight, as the executive director of the Academy said Tuesday Fawcett was left off the "In Memorium" segment because she was “better known for her television work.” After lots of hubbub - including a public statement from the Charlie Angels’ star’s longtime partner Ryan O’Neal - the mystery over her omission has now been solved, kind of.

"In every category, you're going to miss some wonderful people," Academy executive director Bruce David told the Associated Press, explaining that "an unusual number of extremely distinguished screenwriters" died this year.

Considering this logic, you may be wondering why Michael Jackson was included. Davis said Jackson’s appearance in the documentary This Is It is what earned him a spot. "Think of all the blogging we would have gotten if we had left him out!" Davis said. He's right: us bloggers are such a rambunctious breed.

Mods, this hasn't been posted. The previous post said that the Academy didn't include Farrah because they didn't have enough time.

Keri Russell joins Fox's 'Arrested Development' reunion!



God loves me. And this next sentence proves it: Keri Russell is returning to television in a new Fox sitcom produced by Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz and starring Will Arnett!

He loves [Michael Ausiello]!

Sources confirm to me semi-exclusively that [Michael Ausiello's] reigning BFF is in final talks to play Arnett’s love interest in Wilde Kingdom, the new single-camera romantic comedy pilot from Hurtwitz and fellow Arrested scribe James Vallely. Arnett also serves as a writer/producer.

The project centers on Steve Wilde (Arnett), a wealthy, self-centered Beverly Hills playboy who falls for a selfless humanitarian (Russell).

Despite the best efforts of network execs and producers to lure her back to the small screen, the Golden Globe-winning Russell has focused mainly on her feature career since Felicity graduated from TV in 2002. But as a source inside her camp told me last month, “If the right project came along she would consider it. It all comes down to the material.”

I haven’t read the Wilde Kingdom script, but given that Hurwitz and Arnett are involved I’m guessing the material is damn near perfect.

Please join me in welcoming Russell back home!

I personally hate the title too, but I was tricked by it, and I want you all to feel the same pain I did when I realized it wasn't an actual Arrested Development reunion.

Jeremy Renner Wasn't Flirting with Jessica Simpson at Oscars After Party



Here is the rumor: Jeremy Renner spent his time at the Oscars after party "hitting on Jessica like crazy." Here are the facts: They chatted it up at the Governor's Ball for 3 minutes, then they went their merry ways. In fact, they talked about his mom's hair, so it wasn't even a juicy 3 minutes. They definitely won't be the next Katy Perry and Russell Brand, that's for sure!

The Oscar-winning Hurt Locker star cleared up the whole thing in an Us magazine interview: "Her hair stylist [Ken Paves] did my mom's hair so we were talking about that -- and then all of a sudden we're dating!"

But, that doesn't mean he's not on the market. He said: "I'm single -- and looking!"

However, he might not have the time, or the energy, to be a total baller anytime soon. After all, he did take his mom as his Oscars date, though we're sure that was out of the goodness of his heart. "I'm not a ladies man!" he said. "I'm a working man! That's all."

Tacky Idea is Tacky



March 8 - Jason Mraz was one of the many celebrities who attended Elton John's 18th annual Oscar Viewing Party in West Hollywood last night. Wearing his trademark hat and a gray suit, Mraz not only brought a date, but also a proposal for the party's host, Elton John.

When touring the San Diego LGBT Community Center last week,
Jason revealed that he was hoping to discuss a possible collaboration with Elton John on what he described as an “Ebony and Ivory of the times, for equality.” For those too young to remember, Paul McCartney teamed up with Stevie Wonder back in the 1980s for a song about racial harmony and equality called "Ebony and Ivory."

Jason Mraz's idea would bring the heterosexual community together with the gay and lesbian community in support of the rights of gays to legally marry. Mraz has been a vocal supporter of marriage equality for gays, as expressed through his online journal, and even at one of his 2008 concerts in Los Angeles when he urged people to vote "NO" on Proposition 8.

Abby Schwartz, a coordinator at the San Diego LGBT Community Center, told GLTNewsNow.com, "Jason realizes he has a platform that many do not and wants to use it to share a message of love, acceptance and equality for all.” No word on whether Elton John would be interested in the idea.

God of War III Sex Mini-Game, Exposed! [Nsfw]



Like previous God of War games, God of War III has sex mini-games. Because a mini-game is pretty much what sex is, isn’t it? The scene takes place in Aphrodite’s Chamber, and was almost cut. “It was more a debate between me and several of the story writers,” God of War III director Stig Asmussen told website UGO. “I was like, ‘I’d rather not have it in there at all.’” “We make it more than it’s been in the past, but we also give it more of a purpose,” said Asmussen. “It’s not just you going in there, finding some corner and having sex with somebody. It’s something that guides you through the story. You get information and more than just a fluff moment.” Heavily censored footage has surfaced on YouTube, along with pixelated screengrabs. And, of course, the mini-game in its entirety. Judge for yourself, but be warned: There’s nudity and possible spoilers. While there is nudity, the scene itself isn’t exactly sexy per se. The dialogue is hammy in a goofy, porn sort of way, and pails in comparison to the sexual pyrotechnics of adventure game Uncharted 2 and sci-fi game Mass Effect 2. The point, however, of the God of War mini-games are and have always been to show how manly protagonist Kratos is.

Corey Haim Found Dead

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actor Corey Haim died this morning of an apparent overdose, according to LAPD. He was 38.

Police tell us they were called to St. Joseph's hospital in Burbank, CA shortly before 4AM PT to investigate.

Haim shot to fame in the 80s -- when he co-starred in a number of films, including "The Lost Boys," with Corey Feldman

Source

Update: Drug OD

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Corey Haim did indeed OD on drugs, and his mom is the one who discovered him in the apartment and called 911. Although cause of death is premature, so far law enforcement is telling us it was "possibly accidental." We're told LAPD has opened a death investigation.

Source

Update 2 : Corey Haim Collapsed, Prescriptions Found

Corey Haim collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's apartment and four prescription bottles were found nearby ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.   We've learned Corey had been sick the last couple of days with flu-like symptoms. The medications recovered, however, were not related to his illness, sources tell TMZ.   We're told no illicit drugs were found in the apartment.

Sources say Haim got out of bed just before 1 AM and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 AM and Corey was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM. Corey's mom told authorities he had been battling prescription drug addiction for years. Authorities believe -- though are not certain -- Corey died of an accidental drug overdose.

As agent Cole Ortiz on this season's 24, Freddie Prinze Jr. races against the clock. As a father, Prinze Jr. does the same thing changing his baby daughter's diapers.

"I'm good at it. I'm fast," first-time dad Prinze Jr. told George Lopez on Tuesday's Lopez Tonight. "I can time myself, 46 seconds."

Prinze Jr., 33, who with wife Sarah Michelle Gellar has a 4-month-old daughter, Charlotte Grace, admitted he's not quite so handy with other parenting skills.

"Diaper, that's it, that's all I got," he said. "I just tried to work the car seat. You gotta like adjust the seat belts. 'Adjust the seat belt' is so much more complicated than what my brain can handle."

But there's might be a reason he's lacking that particular daddy skill: "My mom drove like Britney Spears with the steering wheel and me right here [in her lap]. I'm fine, I turned out okay. We had a Volvo."

1. "There was a well-known entertainment pair at the Academy Awards who sat together, occasionally holding and laughing together. What a nice couple! Not. They actually can't stand each other and haven't lived together in months. However, as one of Hollywood's perceived stable couples, they are not yet ready to explain to the world that their long-time (by Hollywood standards) relationship is over. Certainly not in such a public setting. And if one of them had showed up solo, or with another escort, it would have brought up too many questions. So it was easier just to go together, pretend that everything's great, and to go their separate ways after the big event… each to a new boyfriend."

2. "This young, glamorous couple showed up together on the red carpet this weekend. They held hands and smiled and posed for fans. What the cameras didn't see, was the huge fight that left the female hysterical and in tears. The male found an old flame whom he agreed to have lunch with this week and it started a huge argument in front of several other stars. This left his lady love so upset, she threw her drink on him, screamed and stormed off to call her publicist. Not Zac and Vanessa."

3. "At an Academy Award party, this C list reality star and sometime naked model told this former A list movie star and now C list wannabe that he was more than welcome to do lines of coke right off her breasts as long as he would share his stash. They soon found their way to a corner of the room."

Thom joins Lotus in dream collaboration



US producer Flying Lotus has said he is hoping to continue his collaboration with Thom Yorke after being picked to support the Radiohead frontman on his US tour.

Yorke also lends vocals to a track on Flying Lotus’ third album Cosmogramma, which is out in May.


FlyLo – real name Steven Ellison – revealed how he hooked up with the singer.
“I woke up to an e-mail,” he told 6 Music news. “It was after I had a dream that me and Thom Yorke were at a grocery store together, and I woke up to that shortly after.
“It’s weird, him and I. We were born on the same day and we keep having these strange but really positive meetings. Now we’ve done this song on my record and I only wonder what’s going to happen next.”


The producer will join Yorke for seven dates when the singer’s new group Atoms For Peace hit the road next month.
The band also features Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, REM drummer Joey Waronker and instrumentalist Mauro Refosco.
Yorke sang on the track ...And the World Laughs With You on the new Flying Lotus album.
“I might make a contribution or two to the next Thom Yorke album,” Flying Lotus said. “Maybe do a remix or something. We’ll see.
“I don’t want to jump the gun or anything but I think it’s going to keep going.”

Flying Lotus starts his own UK tour in London on Wednesday before visiting Brighton and Bristol.

He said the UK was the first country to embrace his music and fans at his shows can expect “live remixing” of his songs and tracks he is inspired by.
“It’s chopping up bits and pieces of things and making this monster. It’s a lot of fun to play it because I never really know where we’re going.
“I’m just conducting this electronic mess,” he joked.

TV Ratings Tuesday



Lead by American Idol, of course Fox won the adults 18-49 ratings race on Tuesday, as a repeat of Glee scored a surprising 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. NBC’s Parenthood slipped 16% to a 2.6 rating in its second outing. Lost recovered fractionally (+2%) from last week to a 4.2 adults 18-49 rating. Melrose Place averaged just a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating (0.6 adults 18-34) in its return from a long layoff.

Of course, American Idol steamrolled the competition in its hour, it was down 5% in adults 18-49 ratings vs. last Tuesday’s 2 hour telecast, but equal to its ratings on the comparable night last season.

NBC’s Parenthood’s 16% slippage from its premiere isn’t unusual, but it didn’t start that high to begin with. It likely wasn’t helped by a 6% fall in The Biggest Loser ratings to a 3.0 for adults 18-49.

As noted, Lost recovered a tick in the adults 18-49 ratings from last week, while the forgotten was down 12% from its last original episode on 2/23 to a 1.5 rating.

It Begins

Letterman beats Leno Monday Night



Jay Leno's one-week winning streak is over.

Monday's "Late Show with David Letterman" beat "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" in adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, the demographic groups that matter most to advertisers. That's according to preliminary fast national Nielsen data just released.


Leno still eked out a win in total viewers, drawing 4.36 million vs. Letterman's 4.19 million.

But in adults 18-49, it was Dave 1.3/6 and Jay 1.1/5. Among adults 25-54, Dave notched a 1.6 vs. a 1.4 for Jay.

Leno's "Tonight" reboot had won its first five nights in viewers and demo last week.

But Monday, NBC's primetime average took a big hit, with "Trauma" tanking and "Law & Order" slipping below Leno Monday averages. The lower lead-in resulted in the Leno loss.

It's just one night, of course. And NBC insiders have been insisting that they think it will take months for Leno to regain the regular lead he had over Dave before the whole Late Night Mess began.

But the fact that Leno lost to Letterman so soon indicates that any post-Olympics halo is gone.

Source

Now for Tuesday Night..

For the first time since Jay Leno returned to 11:30, The Tonight Show trailed Late Show in the early metered market numbers (3.5 rating for Letterman versus 3.2 for Leno). In the 25 markets with local People Meters, Leno held a slim edge with adults 18-49, but he did yesterday as well and when the numbers for the broader national market were factored in, Late Show wound up leading Tonight Show in the 18-49 demo, too.

More details for Tuesday:

* “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (3.2/8 in metered-market households) trailed CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” (3.5/9) while topping ABC’s “Nightline (2.7/) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (1.3/4) in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets.

* In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (1.1/5) ranked #1 among the major networks in the time period over “Late Show” (1.0/5), “Nightline” (1.1/4) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.9/4).

* At 12:35 a.m., “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (1.4/5 in metered-market households) trailed CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” (1.6/6). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Late Night” (0.6/4 in 18-49) tied “Late Late Show” (0.6/4).

Sal to Guest Star on Ugly Betty

Those still mourning the firing of Mad Men's Salvatore Romano, chin up: Bryan Batt will guest-star on Ugly Betty, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Batt will play Spencer Cannon, a handsome soap opera actor in his mid-40s who Amanda (Becki Newton) tries to set up with Marc (Michael Urie). Batt is the second Mad man to guest-star on Ugly Betty this season: Rich Sommer (Harry Crane) shows up tonight as a fireman and potential love interest for Betty.

Batt played Sterling Cooper's closeted art director Sal for three seasons on Mad Men. His character was unceremoniously fired from the agency after he refused the advances of the son of Sterling Cooper's largest client.

Batt is slated to appear on Betty's penultimate episode on April 7, but his role may be extended into the series finale, according to a source.

He is not currently under contract to appear in Mad Men's fourth season.

He was really cool when he came out. People had been outside since 4 a.m. and I took these pictures around noon. The restaurant he was at is a restaurant that its mainly for little kids. They have a train that delivers the food. Dunno if that's going to be in his show.

New Zealand Might Build a "WELLYWOOD" Sign

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


New Zealand’s Wellington Airport have announced plans to pay for the construction of a Wellywood sign above Miramar Wharf to celebrate the heart of New Zealand’s film industry. Peter Jackson’s WETA Workshop, the special effects / production facility behind the Lord of the Rings films, District 9 and Avatar, is located within a mile of the Wharf and proposed sign.

The film industry contributes an estimated $285 million a year into the Wellington economy, and tours of film-related locations and facilities is becoming one of the city’s biggest tourist attractions. An estimated 100,000 people last year visiting Weta’s mini-museum, theatre and gift shop.

The sign will mimic the famous Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, California, although it will be much smaller: only 90 feet long and 10 feet tall, compared to the Hollywood sign’s size of 200 feet long and 50 feet tall. But according to Stuff, not everyone in Wellington is happy about the new sign, and two facebook pages opposing the sign have been set up.

Personally I think it’s pretty cool, but I don’t live there and don’t have to look at the sign regularly. That said, I do live in Hollywood, and always admire the Hollywood sign whenever it is in sight. But on the otherhand, that has a history to it, and the entertainment industry is pretty much inseparable from the city of Los Angeles.

Jamie Jungers is now the queen of the Tiger Woods mistresses -- which is kinda like being the thinnest kid at fat camp -- by winning Howard Stern's Mistress Beauty Pageant.Jungers just took home the $75,000 prize after exposing a bunch of personal information about Tiger ... like the size of the club, what he wanted from her sexually speaking, and on and on.

Jungers had stiff competition -- Jaimee Grubbs and Loredana Jolie -- but was able to take home the crown, because Howard felt she was "the true mistress."

Of course, Grubbs losing a tooth didn't help her chances. But she did get a $15,000 runner-up prize -- more than enough for a dental visit.

Leonardo DiCaprio is immediately recognized by fans as he arrives at Narita International Airport on Wednesday (March 10) in Narita, Japan.

The 35-year-old actor plays a US Marshal investigating a patient’s disappearance from an off-shore hospital for the criminally insane in his latest movie, Shutter Island. “Usually I’m able to detach myself from the process and go home, think about what I’m supposed to do the next day and do my homework, learn my lines, yada-yada,” he said.

“This situation was a lot different. I mean, there were a couple of weeks there where I was in a real hole, Leo shared with the Herald Sun. “I think it’s the deepest I’ve gone with a character emotionally. It was shocking how sort of deep and dark we had to go emotionally with this character.”

Fierce bitch makes a new music video.



FLORENCE WELCH has pulled off a KEVIN KEEGAN.

Her trademark red locks have been curled in the style of England footie ace Kev's perm circa 1982.

It is all for the new video for re-released single Dog Days Are Over, out after it featured on Channel 4's trailers for Slumdog Millionaire.

And the new video shoot was much more lavish.

She said: "The original was so cheap. It was a video camera in a forest, with my dad and Marks & Spencer sandwiches."

Taio Cruz Has Next Week's #1 Single and Sets a New Billboard Hot 100 Record



British newcomer Taio Cruz will have the #1 single on next week's Billboard Hot 100 with "Break Your Heart," featuring rapper Ludacris. The song leaps to the top spot all the way from #53 last week, breaking the record for the biggest jump to #1 by a debut artist.

The previous record holder was season one "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson and her winning single, "A Moment Like This," which jumped from #52 to #1 in 2002. However, Clarkson still holds the record for biggest jump to #1 overall with last year's "My Life Would Suck Without You" (#97-#1).

Cruz's "Break Your Heart" tops the chart on the strength of digital sales, moving 273,000 downloads last week. However, the song, which hit #1 in the UK last September, is rapidly growing in airplay as well.

Billboard's full Hot 100 Chart will be updated tomorrow.

Meet the Mastermind Behind the NOH8 Campaign, Adam Bouska



NOH8 Campaign photographer Adam Bouska
talks to us
about the night it all began, his surprise engagement to partner [and NOH8 visionary Jeff Parshley], his dream celebrities to shoot, why the hell Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert haven’t posed yet, backlash from the anti-gay contingent, and gearing up for the hot & sweaty Dinah Shore open shoot later this month.

Walk me through Election night 2008, as you came up with the genesis of the NOH8 campaign.

Initially, Jeff and I were taking part in the “No on 8″ rallies in West Hollywood [leading up to the election], but after the passage of Prop 8 I wanted to something more photography-related since every photographer wants to send a message through their images. So, we went back to our apartment at 2 or 3 am on election night, November 4, 2008, and did Jeff’s photo. We did the duct tape over the mouth symbolizing not being heard…  The NOH8 on the cheek came from us seeing “Victim of H8” on Facebook profiles and we wanted to replace that with people’s faces.

“Hate” is really what it’s all about – using money to fund campaigns to split apart people’s relationships – we see that as hate. So, it’s very important to have people looking into the camera, to connect and look in their eyes. The white t-shirts help the skin tones and the eyes stand out a bit more. I think the difference in skin tones says a lot because it applies in any respect where the majority votes on the rights of a minority.

Who is your dream person to join the campaign?

I always say Oprah would be a dream person to get, but there are really so many people we’d love to have.  Bill Clinton would be great, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Al Sharpton, John McCain would be great after his wife did it.  There are so many influential people who we’d love.

I noticed that there are some obvious omissions from the campaign, like Lady Gaga or Adam Lambert. I know you’ve reached out to them repeatedly via Twitter, why haven’t they participated?

It’s tough, I can’t speak for them cause I’m not really sure. I haven’t had any direct contact with them, I mean there could be publicists in the middle. Many people have different reasons for not doing it because of their publicists, different fan bases that they don’t want to alienate. Though I don’t think that would be the case with Lady Gaga or Adam Lambert. I assume it’s just a busy schedule with them. I know Lady Gaga supports it, we’ve got pictures of her wearing our bracelets and stuff like that but we’ve reached out to her publicist and no response.

Adrianne Curry Issues Harsh Words Following The Death Of Corey Haim


The death of actor Corey Haim elicited a strong reaction from Hollywood Tweeters on Wednesday. After all, many working actors in their 30s grew up either watching the childhood star’s arsenal of ’80s teen flicks, like The Lost Boys, License to Drive, and Lucas — or they knew the man personally. Of course, some celebs took a harsher approach in expressing their sadness over Haim’s passing.

One star that would have been better off keeping her trap shut is former America’s Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry…..

Model Adrienne Curry Tweeted at length about the alleged circumstances surrounding the Corey’s death this morning. Her comments really rubbed me the wrong way, but some of you may have a different take:
-”Corey Haim died.That is what happens when u cant grow the fuck up&kick the habit.sadly,most who start dont stop.A waste of beautiful life….”

-”Drugs dont kill people,people kill themselves w/drugs..party in their teens&continue2do so through their 20’s and 30’s, leading2death….”

-”it is a disease that addicts go into KNOWINGLY, as a former addict, I find it hard to feel sorry for those making bad choices…”

It's time for another Wizard of Oz adaptation*

EXCLUSIVE: Fresh off Disney's massive success with Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," Warner Bros. wants to remake another childhood classic. Like, really classic. The studio is examining two existing "Wizard of Oz" projects, with an eye toward giving one of them a modern gloss and moving it toward the screen.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One project, called "Oz," currently lives at Warner's New Line label. It's being produced by Temple Hill, which is behind a little franchise called "Twilight," and has a script written by Darren Lemke, a writer on the upcoming "Shrek Forever After."

A second "Wizard of Oz" project, set up at Warners proper, skews a little darker -- it's written by "A History of Violence" screenwriter Josh Olson and focuses on a granddaughter of Dorothy who returns to Oz to fight evil. "Clash of the Titans" producer Basil Iwanyk and his Thunder Road Pictures are behind that one. ("Spawn" creator Todd MacFarlane is potentially involved in a producerial capacity, to give you some idea of the tone.)

While the idea of a new "Wizard of Oz" movie is said to be in the development, let's-bat-this-around stage, it's been advanced seriously enough on the lot that representatives for some of the top directors around Hollywood have been briefed.

Written by a guy who does Shrek, and produced by the idiots who make Twilight? I ain't even worried.

Sophie's back with a cracker!



The new Sophie Ellis-Bextor single landed in our inbox this morning and since then, according to iTunes play count, we've listened to it precisely 16 times. We always pick pleasure over pain, so you can take that as a testament to the track's quality.

It's called 'Bittersweet' and it's a co-production between Biff Stannard, who previously worked with Soph on 'New York City Lights', and the Freemasons, with whom she hooked up last year for 'Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)'. The latter's the Bextor track with which 'Bittersweet' shares the most DNA, though the pair are more second cousins who see each other at Christmas and significant family birthdays than brother and sister.

Right, time for the nitty-gritty. 'Bittersweet' is a big spangly club banger with a pleasing whiff of the '80s to it and a chorus that's both uplifting and wistful. "I know I shouldn't go but something makes me crave the heat, your love is bittersweet," she sings on that chorus, "The fire in your touch I always find so hard to beat, your love is bittersweet..." After both "bittersweets" there are extra snippets of Sophie vocal buried just beneath the surface of the mix - "woah-woah-woah, so here I am" - and they're very probably the loveliest bits of the song.

Time for a final thought? Oh go on then. Well, this is a cracking comeback single from an artist we've long been a fan of here at DS and always enjoy pestering at awards shows. It's not out until May, and God GaGa knows what's going to happen between now and then, but, if you ask us, Mademoiselle E-B's given herself every chance of bagging an eighth top ten hit with this one.

Corey Feldman Reacts to Death of Corey Haim



Corey Feldman recalls how he found out that his longtime friend and costar Corey Haim had passed away.

"I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother, Corey Haim. My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face," Feldman discloses.

Feldman and Haim costarred in seven movies together including 'The Lost Boys' and 'License to Drive.' In addition to their films, the actors had an A&E reality series in 2007 called "The Two Coreys."

"I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son, who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school," Feldman says. "This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived."

Haim passed away early Wednesday morning. He was 38.

"I liked to behave like an actor.....and that apparently provoked a lot of people into hitting me.”

Despite his worldwide superstar status, Robert Pattinson had to take his lumps as a child just like the rest of us.

The “Twilight” stud told press he used to be the target of many a bully’s aggression. “I got beaten up by a lot of people when I was younger.”

He continued, “I was a bit of an idiot, but I always thought the assaults were unprovoked. I liked to behave like an actor, or how I thought an actor was supposed to be, and that apparently provoked a lot of people into hitting me.”

As for his rapport with the ladies, Rob lamented, “I don’t even remember the last time I asked someone out on a date. Like, just went up to them and that’s the first thing I did… I tend to hold back.”

Babies Mocking Babies

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lindsay Lohan is no "milkaholic," but she does cry like a baby. The "Mean Girls" star was left sobbing uncontrollably when she saw an E-Trade ad on Super Bowl Sunday about a ditsy, boyfriend-stealing infant named Lindsay she believed was created in her likeness, her irate mom told The Post yesterday.

"She said, 'Mommy, help me. This is wrong. How can they do this?' " Dina Lohan said of a tearful phone call with her 23-year-old daughter after the big game. La Lohan had just set her peepers on an ad for E-trade that features a pair of babies video chatting about a boyfriend-stealing tyke -- and became "extremely upset" because she believed the spot was taking a jab at her hard-partying ways.

"They're little babies doing this, mocking another child who's just trying to survive Hollywood, basically," Dina Lohan said.
In the ad for the financial-services company, a baby girl is upset with her boyfriend for not calling the previous night.
After the boy apologizes, saying he was diversifying his portfolio, the girl asks suspiciously: "And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?"
"Lindsay?" the boy asks sheepishly before another baby girl pokes her head into the frame and asks, "Milk-a-what?"
Lohan filed a lawsuit in Nassau County on Monday seeking an eye-popping $100 million in damages for her pain and suffering.

"I'm just basically glad I took a stand. I'm not going to let them do this to us anymore," Dina Lohan said of the "horrible" and "mean" ad.

She said that the ad was clearly aimed at her daughter because unlike other stars, her daughter's first name is synonymous with the "Herbie Fully Loaded" actress.

"Everyone knows Lindsay, like Cher or Madonna," Dina Lohan said. But Grey Group, which produced the ad, insists that -- unlike Oprah or Cher -- Lindsay is a popular baby name. In fact, company spokesman Chris Brown said that someone working on the spot shared the name as well. Lindsay's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, has requested an injunction to have the ad yanked. E-Trade declined to comment until it could thoroughly examine the court papers.

The latest in a long line of rad things Gabby's done over the last 24 hours (since I last posted about her) includes bringing down the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" house and stopping by an "America's Best Dance Crew" taping. While there the lifelong N'Sync fan got to hang out with original member -- and "ABDC" judge -- J.C. Chasez, causing her to remark, "Wow, what kind of world do I live in now!"

Gabby got to witness the crews handling this week's disco challenge -- and PopWrap has a sneak peek at the song each tackles!

Bale Out!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Christian Bale hasn't spoken to his family for 18 months.


The actor's mother Jenny is mystified as to why he has ignored all attempts she has made to make contact since he was arrested on suspicion of assault following a row they had on the evening of the London premiere of his movie 'The Dark Knight' in July 2008.

She said: "He's not talking to us, it's not the other way round. He has changed his phone numbers, and he ignores the letters, emails and birthday cards I send.

"As awful as that night was, and although I rack my mind every day about what couldhave made him behave like that, I'd happily forget it happened if we could go back to being a family. That's the most important thing.

"We miss Christian terribly. But it's been more than 18 months now and it's hard to see how this will ever end."

According to Jenny and her daughter Sharon, they are still unsure why Christian - who has a four-year-old daughter Emmeline with wife Sibi Blazic - "exploded with anger" and had them thrown out of his suite at the lavish Dorchester hotel shortly before the premiere.

Jenny, 62, recalled: "He just exploded with anger like I have never seen. He never gave us a chance to find out what it was all about before he frog-marched us out of his suite."

Sharon added: "He had his face to mine and he was bellowing and swearing about how I never called or emailed. His wife, who I have met a few times and always got on with, was standing across the room. I kept asking her, 'Why is he doing this?' but she just shrugged. I was shaking. It was so frightening. It didn't make any sense.

"It probably went on for about ten minutes before he physically marched us out of the room and into the lift."

Jenny now relies on the internet for news of her 36-year-old son - who moved to the US when he was 17 with his father David when his parents divorced - and lives in fear of something terrible happening to him.

She told the Mail Online website: "I search for pictures of him on Google just to see how he is. Sometimes he's pictured with his daughter, and I get to see how she's growing. If I want to know what's going on in his life, I have to read the headlines. What if something terrible happens and I have to find out about it in a newspaper? I'm his mum and he's my little boy."

One Life to Live KO's Kish


This won’t go down well with the LGBT community. One Life to Live stars Brett Claywell and Scott Evans—who play gay couple Kyle and Fish—are being written off the show and will be gone by mid-April.

“We are concluding the story that we set out to tell with Kyle and Fish,” says executive producer Frank Valentini. “We are very proud to have broken new ground with a same-sex couple on daytime.”

Word is, the decision to drop the duo didn’t come easily. Kish has been a big success with the media and the show’s gay fans, and gay-advocacy groups have showered OLTL with awards for creating the trail-blazing couple. But sources at the network say the duo failed to resonate with the mainstream audience.

Ratings for the ABC soap were particularly dismal in late 2009 during the weeks that Fish came out of the closet and he and Kyle officially became a couple. Also playing simultaneously was a sprawling plot that had Robin Strasser’s character, Dorian, pretending to be a lesbian in order to win the gay vote in the Llanview mayoral race. A case of gay overkill? Perhaps.

Here are the plans for the Kish wrap-up: Spoiler Alert! On the March 29 episode, Fish will learn for certain what viewers have known for quite a while—he’s the biological father of baby Sierra Rose, via his drunken one-nighter with psychotic stripper Stacy Morasco (Crystal Hunt). With Stacy now dead, there are rumblings of a custody battle with Stacy’s sister Gigi (Farah Fath) but, ultimately, the law is on Fish’s side and the two dads will blissfully start a new life with the baby.

A show rep says the characters will not actually leave Llanview and, because Fish is a cop, he may pop up in a crime-related capacity down the line—but no promises are being made.

NeNe Leakes Calls Son’s Arrest for Marijuana Possession a ‘Family Issue’



A third season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was just announced -– and it already promises to be drama-filled.

Bryson Bryant, the eldest son of NeNe Leakes, was arrested on a minor marijuana possession charge and was put in an Atlanta-area jail on March 7. Bryant has appeared on the Bravo reality show — and, in the first season, was filmed looking at colleges with Leakes.
 

On Wednesday, Leakes released a statement, calling her son’s arrest a “family issue.”
 

“Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson,” she said in the statement. “Certainly, my husband and I will deal with this family issue in a private manner. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last. Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order. Still, I ask that you respect our privacy during this trying time.”
 

But Leakes didn’t just stop there. Earlier that day, she also Tweeted about the incident. “Morning! I know my parenting job is NEVER DONE but TOUGH LOVE is ordered by the JUDGE! The judge [in] this case is ME,” she Tweeted. “My head is up & held high this morning because I KNOW the parent that i’am! U hate 4 yo kids 2 make mistakes! TOUGH LOVE this morning.”
 

The outspoken Real Housewives of Atlanta star is expected to appear Thursday night on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live show, which airs at midnight. – Blane Bachelor

Lily Allen Signs on for New Reality TV Show



While musician Lily Allen has announced she will "retire" from music, it appears she won't be leaving showbiz altogether.

According to UK's
The Sun, Allen is set to star in her own reality TV documentary series, which will showcase her journey from pop singer to clothing designer. Camera crews have already begun following her as she prepares to open a store called Lucy in Disguise with her sister.

"Lily was approached about the TV show and thought it would help promote her new ventures as well as letting people get to know her a bit better," a source tells The Sun.

Of course, this isn't her first time filming a TV series. She previously hosted her own talk show, 'Lily Allen And Friends,' on BBC3 in the U.K. The series was set to begin it's second run, but Allen turned that down.

Allen's July 4 concert will reportedly be her final ever show as "Lily Allen." On her Twitter, she has spoke openly about leaving the music business. "Now that I've retired in gonna try and get on 'Come Dine With Me.' I'm making chicken tarragon and leek pie tonight. Yum," she tweeted.

"Retiring from writing, recording and touring under the name 'Lily Allen,'" she later wrote.

A dispute at a Lancaster movie theater during a screening of "Shutter Island" ended when a man, who had complained about someone nearby talking on a cellphone, was stabbed in the neck with a meat thermometer.


The incident occurred two weeks ago at the Cinemark 22 theater in Lancaster, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The theater was packed for a 9 p.m. Saturday screening of the Martin Scorsese horror movie when the victim complained about a woman near him who was using a cellphone during the show. She and two men with her left the movie theater. Two men returned a few minutes later and stabbed the victim, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

"It was vicious and cowardly attack," Whitmore said.

The victim, who was not identified, was hospitalized with serious injuries Two other moviegoers who came to the victim's aid were also were hurt during the fight, officials said.

Chad Ochocinco Talks 'Dancing,' Getting In Touch With His 'Feminine Side'



"In football, you're never [standing] right up. That's how you get killed," he said. "Everything is about being low... and now I'm outside of my element where I have to stand tall.
 

"I have to continue to tell myself to get in touch with my feminine side... 'cause I got on the heels and I have to... be upright and it's hard because I'm not used to this," he added.
 

While Chad is used to wearing spandex on the field, ballroom dancing outfits are far more fanciful. But the wide receiver revealed he's ready to push things with his choice of reality show wear.
 

"I'm thinking outside of the box," he said.
 

"He wants something see-thru he said," Cheryl said straight-faced. "I mean, this is a family show!"
 

"It's a family show, but listen, they need to know I'm edgy," Chad responded as Cheryl laughed. "I'm trying to [make] my costumes 50% Lady Gaga, 50% Rihanna, and then with the help of [Cheryl], when I put it together with the dancing and the costumes with the heels? I mean... What?!"
 

Chad said he has been avoiding the calls from his Bengals teammates as he gets into his "Dancing" groove, but he's getting ready for some boyish ribbing when they finally get through. And there's one man in particular he expects to tease him the most - Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer.
 

"My quarterback is gonna kill me," Chad said. "My quarterback, he's one of the biggest jokers on the team and I can see him putting high heels on in the locker room. It's coming. I'm prepared for it."
 

But Chad has no regrets.
 

"This is an opportunity I couldn't pass up - especially to work with the beautiful Cheryl Burke," he said.

YEASAYER "O.N.E." VIDEO

Yeasayer "ONE" By: Radical Friend from ODDBLOOD on Vimeo.



In Yeasayer's confusing-but-awesome new video for "O.N.E", a guy with a morphing alien face walks into a severely made-up hipster party, where Yeasayer are playing on lit-up instruments and everyone else looks like they're trying out for a Lady Gaga video. He then proceeds to play a game of diamond Tron chess while an audience of futuristic mimes claps politely. None of it makes any sense, but the whole thing still rules hard.

L.A. Reid Blasted For Failure Of Rihanna/Mariah’s Albums

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Antonio L.A. Reid has found himself in hot water after being accused of mishandling many of his label’s biggest projects during the last year. The Island Def Jam CEO has reportedly been facing pressure from Lucian Grainge, the new Universal Music Group CEO, following his rampant spending and the incredibly low sales of Mariah Carey and Rihanna’s recent releases. Moreover, Reid’s recent efforts to sign Jennifer Lopez (who has not had a hit record in years) have made him the target of serious media criticism.

Reid was scheduled to answer questions from fellow industry moguls regarding the issue at the Billboard 2010 Music & Money Symposium at the St. Regis last week but failed to make an appearance after one of his sons mysteriously fell ill. To date, Carey’s ‘Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel’ has sold just short of 500k units since it’s release in September while Rihanna’s ‘Rated R’ has only shipped 2.5 worldwide compared to the 2.6 million that her ‘Good Girl Gone Bade’ album sold in the US alone.

Dear Mariah and Rihanna: Get out now! Do not pass ‘go’. Do not collect $200. Just get the heck out of Dodge!

Rihanna still reaching out to Chris Brown?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna is still in contact with ex-boyfriend Chis Brown, it has been claimed.

The Rude Boy singer — who was left battered and bruised following a 2009 altercation with Brown — is trying to stay friendly with the Run It hitmaker so she can “truly heal”.

“Ri feels like she won’t truly heal,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“Rihanna still talks to Chris. There’s some kind of need there, still.”

The source adds that Rihanna’s current squeeze, Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp, isn’t happy that the star is talking to her violent former flame.

“Matt has a temper,” said the insider. “He knows people who are friends with Chris, and they’ve told him that if he ever sees Rihanna on the street, he’d better run the other way.”

It was recently reported that Rihanna flew to Arizona to meet Kemp’s family this past weekend.

If anybody has access to call Lady Gaga up and chat for a bit, it's Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, who toured with Gaga in 2009. And if Scherzinger can get her on the phone, she's got a few specific things she'd like to ask.

"If I could call Lady Gaga on the phone and ask her for anything ... I would ask her if she could design my next costume for my next music video. No, I would ask her to do a song with me," she joked. "Because she is flipping brilliant."

After getting the career-related stuff out of the way, she's got a question about a little something she gave Gaga awhile back. "I'd ask her, you know what I would say? I'd say, 'Gaga, you still have those really pretty Vivienne Westwood earrings that I bought you when we were on tour?' And if she says, 'Yeah,' I'll say, 'OK, cool, you remember those earrings, right? Yeah, when are we going to do a song together?' " she joked.

And while Scherzinger is currently in reinvention mode with the Pussycat Dolls, she told us she admires Gaga's ability to constantly reinvent her own look. "Already within the year, two years she'd been on the scene, she's just always inspiring us with music," she said. "She's reinvented herself eight times this past week!"

Kendra Wilkinson Introduces Baby Hank to Hugh Hefner

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The wait is over! Kendra Wilkinson's baby boy, Hank Baskett IV, has finally met mommy's famous ex-boyfriend, Hugh Hefner.

"The baby is a winner!" Hefner, 83, tells PEOPLE after meeting the 3-month-old for the first time last week. "He's a gorgeous baby. Kendra should be very proud."

Seeing a former girlfriend now married to Indianapolis Colts player Hank Baskett and with a new baby didn't bring up any hard feelings for the Playboy founder. In fact, Hefner wishes the whole family nothing but the best. "It's wonderful and I'm happy for her. I love Kendra and Hank and I love them together," he says. "Kendra has always been very dear and her heart has always been very pure."

Hefner says he "absolutely" saw Wilkinson's motherly instincts on display during her recent visit to the Playboy Mansion with baby Hank. "Her entire focus now is with Hank and little Hank," he said. "She's a wonderful mother and little Hank is in good hands."

He adds, "She was the wild child when I first met her and she wound up being the first of the bunch to get married here at the Playboy Mansion. Now she has a baby. It's the stuff that dreams are made of."

Johnny Weir Has Harsh Words For Kate Gosselin




Kate Gosselin and Johnny Weir's Family Ties

Today 10:58 AM PST by Marc Malkin and Dahvi Shira
Kate Gosselin and Johnny Weir are like family.
OK, not exactly. But who would have thought they sorta run in the same circles.
We'll let the Olympic figure skater explain...
"My cousins' house backs up to the house Jon and Kate lived in," Weir, 25, told us at Elton John and David Furnish's AIDS Foundation benefit.
Weir spent his younger years in Quarrysville, a small Pennsylvania town about 50 miles from his family and Gosselin's neighborhood in Wyomissing. "It's a very small and quiet area," the Olympian explained. "Everyone's like, 'What are paparazzi doing in the middle of Amish country?' It was really annoying for everybody."
Weir has met the world's most famous mother of eight and he is not rooting for her on Dancing With the Stars. "She was a terror," he hissed. "She was rude to everyone at this charity show, and showed up very late. She's not a film star. She's not a singer. And it's not really acceptable in those cases either, to be a nasty person." (FYI: Weir has thrown his support behind moon man astronaut Buzz Aldrin.)
In other words, don't expect to find Weir stopping by the Gosselin household when he visits his cousins. "The only thing I want to be on right now is Real Housewives of Atlanta," he said. "I want to be on the third season and be friends with Nene Leakes so badly."
Join the club, Mr. Weir.

How Animal Planet's Dave Salmoni Went from Living with Lions to Full-Fledged Gay Icon



If you haven't heard of Dave Salmoni yet you either aren't gay, never watch Animal Planet, or avoid daytime and nighttime talk shows altogether. Not since the untimely passing of Steve Irwin has cable channel Animal Planet been able to boast such a magnetic on-screen personality. And while good old Steve was hugely lovable for his wacky antics, he lacked the male supermodel physique and bone structure on one Mr. Dave Salmoni.

Although Dave isn't gay himself, he recently stated that, "I am most appreciative of my gay fans." He is so appreciative that he went on The Tyra Banks Show recently completely shirtless, oiled up and wearing only a Tarzan-style loincloth. As you can imagine, this image has been reposted on many a gay website and is one of the most Google-searched images on the net.

Dave Salmoni, who is listed as an "actor" on Internet Movie Database, really got a name from his first Animal Planet special Living with Lions. He spent six months in Africa trying to gain the trust of a pride of wild lions. He even went so far as to place himself in a giant plastic box with air-holes so he could sit next to the carcass of a dead animal the lions were eying. To say he got close is an understatement, as a couple of the lions took some jabs at his box, but thankfully this dreamy beau-hunk survived unscathed.

But Dave didn't always have the protection of his plastic box, as often he would just spend hours sitting near the pride of Lions so they would get used to his presence. Many times he got within feet of the wild beasts, and the visuals of the wild animals getting so close to a human were positively riveting.

But the most replayed scene (especially on the Internet) was when Dave took a bath naked in a river near the lions. While they mainly ignored him as he was getting a much needed bath (he grew a beard so long that he actually started looking like a really handsome version of the Unabomber), viewers at home realized Animal Planet well and truly had a new star on their hands.

tbh the whole article should be bolded and read, but i didn't wanna get a tldr rejection so i bolded some parts, but read it i promise it's not bad.

The Two Coreys' Pro-Capitalist Human Rights

Now that Corey Haim has passed to the other side what will come of his joint activist venture with Corey Feldman? If you aren't familiar with it (most aren't) I'm speaking of The Two Coreys' Pro-Capitalist Human Rights organization they started to use popular networking tools to address important things like capitalism and human rights (seriously) to the youth. Aside from the teaser entry it was never delved into further by either party although Feldman alluded to having more stars sign on before it all went public. I've googled but the results are congested with news of Haim's death. Same goes for youtube (there is a video of him talking to a pap about his project since that's what he does).

If that single tumblr entry is all we have at least we can look at it as a sort of amazing final collaboration between the two that will stand the test of time.. or until Corey's people delete it. It looks almost so bad it would have had to have been amazing.

Tanks on the streets of Bogota for Metallica


The security measures are set to be as heavy as the music when rockers Metallica take to the stage in Bogota's Simon Bolivar park this evening.

Some 1,500 police will be employed to stand guard at the site during Metallica's concert, as well as four tanks and several police trucks, reported El Espectador.

Authorities will also be closing the streets around the park and preventing the entry of under-14s, pregnant women, those under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and those carrying weapons.

The Los Angeles SAN FRANCISCO rock behemoths have arrived in the Colombian capital, along with 70 tons of speakers, lights and screens - everything necessary for a spectacular show. Amen

Support will come from fellow rockers Mastodon, who in an interview with website Shock, said it was a privilege to perform with the legendary heavy metal band.

Entry to the site for ticket holders will begin at 2 PM - good news for those who have been camping outside the arena since Tuesday.

Other artists set to perform in Colombia in the near future include Aerosmith, Sting and Moby.

Michael Clarke and Lara Bingle end two year engagement





AUSTRALIAN cricketer Michael Clarke and model Lara Bingle have separated, A Current Affair reports.

The pair had been on rocky ground since a nude photo scandal.

The glamour couple, who have been hit hard by the nude photo scandal engulfing Bingle, are at the crossroads, with The Daily Telegraph reporting that Clarke is "confused and lost" and poised to dump the 22-year-old model.

Clarke flew into Sydney yesterday after he was given indefinite leave from the Australian team's tour of New Zealand and remained holed up with Bingle all day at the couple's $6 million apartment at Bondi Beach.

Dakota & Kristen's Sex/ Drugfest: Parent Approved?




The new film The Runaways really is all about "sex, drugs, and rock and roll," as Joan Jett told us today at The Luxe Hotel for the film's junket. (Also, it's a must-see, totally cool.)

Let's hit sex first: We all know by now that stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning share a big wet kiss onscreen but that isn't the only racy thing this film has to offer. As little Dakota snorts drugs off the floor and spews some foul language, it's clear this film is a huge departure from the squeaky-clean New Moon, where everyone's celibate and mopey.

Not exactly family fare here, folks.

So what do Stewart and Fanning's own parents think about their babies going at it on screen? We asked: 

How do your parents feel about watching you act out some of these sexual and drug infested situations? Is it hard for them?

Dakota: "One of the first movies I ever did was a pretty intense subject matter, so my parents have kind of gotten used to it by now. I mean, they know it's just acting. They know it doesn't come home with me."

Kristen: [turning to Dakota]: "Do you find that it's gotten easier [for our parents]? Because I find that it has."

Why?

Kristen: "Like, I was more nervous about it when I was younger and it was a slow wearing down of like, 'OK, Kristen's going to do what she's going to do. She's just going to do these movies.' Not that they were against it, I just sort of took away that projection. I sort of didn't care anymore, you know, 'Are you guys cool with this?'"

Kristen and Dakota really grew up in the limelight, so we're sure their parental units have to be OK with some of the raunchy stuff. If not, let's hold hands and pray they get there, 'cause The Runaways is gonna be a tough one to swallow.

But let's not overshadow the fact that these two gals give amazing performances as Joan and Cherie Currie—and after you get past the shock factor that you're watching Kristen and Dakota, you find yourself totally enthralled in the flick. Great stuff.

Still, as much as best buddies K and D loved portraying these rock stars, they aren't quite ready to give up their day jobs.
Both women gave an emphatic "no" when we asked if they would like to sing on future projects.

Indie artists rally against cancellation of BBC 6 Music

http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/7823/42116961.jpg


Alison Mosshart, Wild Beasts and Animal Collective have all urged the BBC not to close down 6 Music.


The digital radio station has been outlined for closure, along with Asian Network, in an effort to cut costs.

The artists, who are all attached to independent record label Domino, argue that 6 Music is crucial for the future of new music.

“Please don't leave us musicians and music lovers with such a void,” Mosshart, who fronts The Kills and The Dead Weather, said.

“We need BBC6. It is the only radio station we all listen too, and seemingly, the only station that plays anything worth listening too.”

US born Mosshart added that the closure of 6 Music would be “culturally damaging” and would likely stop her from listening to English radio.

Wild Beasts singer Hayden Thorpe said: “I'm in no doubt the unrelenting support we have had from BBC6 has massively helped our career.

“This sends out a damning message to creative young people.”

Meanwhile, Animal Collective's Noah Lennox said 6 Music should be saved because it offered “unpredictable radio”.

The BBC's plans to close 6 Music have led to a widespread backlash from figures within the music industry and the wider public.

BBC Director General Mark Thompson said last week that the earliest 6 Music and Asian Network would close would be the end of 2011.

Most desirable Bollywood babes, according to the IndiaTimes

I posted BollySpice's sexiest men list a couple of months ago.

I thought someone might appreciate the sexiest women, according to IndiaTimes. OP commentary about how you might know these actresses in italics. NON-ITALICIZED COMMENTARY BELONGS TO INDIATIMES.



Kareena Kapoor (You know her because... she looks like Paris Hilton and is Bollywood's highest paid actress.)
Kareena has been the size zero queen ever since she became size zero for her forgettable movie ‘Tashan’. She looks like a million bucks... Quite a surprise why Saif wants Bebo to become more thin than this?

The Extremely Expected Happens


OK Go have left EMI to start up their own record label.

E-mail to the mailing list:

Big news.

OK Go has struck out on its own. The band has left the EMI family of corporations to form their own enterprise, a homemade upstart called Paracadute. In addition to being humanity's second most fun word to say ("pamplemousse" was taken), Paracadute is really just a way for the boys to continue doing what they've always done. Which is whatever they want. Being OK Go just got a little bit easier.

So please join me in welcoming Paracadute into the world. As yet, there's no building, no logo, no employee manual. Just the band, some paperwork, and a bunch of insane ideas. Plus two dogs in suits. Exciting stuff.

A word on Capitol/EMI: Neither our lawyers nor their lawyers have any hard feelings and, in fact, the split has been remarkably friendly. There are many wonderful people at the company who have worked very hard on our behalf, and we've become very close with them over the years. Even if the band hadn't signed a non-disparagement clause as part of the deal, we would have nothing bad to say. All joking aside, we're very thankful, and we wish them all the best.

So, pop a cork and blast Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky. Today is a big, exciting, incredible day, the latest lovely moment in a big, exciting, incredible week.

More news soon.

Advocate interviews Chloe Sevigny



A Golden Globe winner for her buttoned-up portrayal of Nicki Grant, the dowdiest sister-wife in HBO’s polygamy drama Big Love, Chloë Sevigny has been in style since her 1995 film debut as an HIV-positive teen in Kids. Killer supporting roles in edgy fare like American Psycho and Party Monster made her big, but it was her Oscar-nominated turn in Boys Don’t Cry that made us fall in love. Revisiting her many lesbian roles, the 35-year-old fashionista confesses the one food group that’s kept her from jumping the fence.

Greater Than AIDS PSA from The Black AIDS institute



You may recall reading about the amazing new "Greater Than AIDS" campaign from The Black AIDS Institute on loldarian.com back in January. A new PSA has just surfaced directed by openly gay power couple Quincy LeNear and Deondray Gossett that is just as heavy on star power as it is on message.


Actors Nia Long, Jurnee Smollett,(The Great Debaters), Vanessa Williams(Soul Food), Eva Marcille(ANTM,Young & The Restless), Lance Gross (House of Payne), and Samuel Jackson are just a few recognizable faces who have lent their celebrity to this great cause. 
(Also Tia Mowry).



Phil Wilson, director of The Black AIDS Institute explains the messaging and goal of the "Greater Than AIDS campaign and PSA via POZ Magazine:


"I’m the Black AIDS Institute. So, my first priority and obligation is to develop messages that resonate with black folks. I’m trying to get their attention. My audience does not believe AIDS is about them. I never say, never imply and never suggest AIDS is only a black disease. I never suggest and never imply it is any less tragic when anyone [else] gets infected with or gets sick or dies from HIV/AIDS. But when 50 percent of all new HIV cases in this country are in black communities, when 50 percent of the 1.1 million people estimated to be living with HIV in America are black and when 50 percent of all AIDS-related deaths in the United States are black, I don’t think there’s any room to debate that AIDS in America is a black disease."

Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth being unbearably adorable.



It’s not often you catch two esteemed Emmy winners so insanely giddy—except, perhaps, on awards night. But when Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth and Will & Grace show stealer Sean Hayes sit down to chat, they’re completely buzzed…even though they’re totally sober. The close friends have long wanted to work together, and now that they’re playing opposite each other in the first Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, they’re thrilled. Based on Billy Wilder’s classic film The Apartment, the dark musical comedy (with songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, book by Neil Simon) chronicles the misadventures of Chuck Baxter (Hayes), an office drone who tries to get ahead by lending his apartment to company execs for their extramarital trysts. But complications arise when he falls for his boss’s mistress (Chenoweth). Lounging cozily on a sofa, the costars enthuse about the show—and each other.
