Sources say Will Smith causing problems on set of wife Jada Pinkett Smith's show 'HawthoRNe'


The TNT network boasts "We Know Drama," and the cast and crew on its hit show "HawthoRNe" can certainly attest to that.

We hear there's trouble behind the scenes of the medical series, and sources say it's being caused by star Jada Pinkett Smith's husband, Will Smith.
The cast, which also includes Michael Vartan, just returned to the set this week after an unplanned, eight-day hiatus - and although one source says it was because of an illness in the Smith's family, another well-connected insider suggests it was imposed by the network to sort out all of the production's complications.

The second snitch continues that TNT executives are blaming the show's current issues on Smith - a co-producer on "HawthoRNe" - because he isn't cooperating with the rest of the team.

"He is not currently shooting a movie, so he's been a constant on the set in recent weeks," the network source says. "He's been inserting his input and requesting so many changes to the script that it pushed back the production schedule tremendously and caused everything to spiral out of control."
Pinkett Smith plays a nurse on the hit show, which premiered last year to stellar ratings. But despite the first season's success, our insider says her husband wants the dramatic scenes pushed to the limit - and he apparently submits pages of notes and rewrite requests to the show's writers and producers each week.
A rep for TNT had "no comment" on the matter, and Smith's flack said that this was "untrue."

Marlee Matlin's new YouTube reality show



Marlee Matlin had an idea for a reality show that she hoped would bring some insight into the lives and struggles of deaf people and how they cope. But while reality TV has brought us wife swappers, party girls, aging rock stars and dieting divas, apparently no one was ready for something that real.

So instead, the hearing-impaired actress who won an Academy Award as lead actress for her role in "Children of a Lesser God," took her show "My Deaf Family" to Google's YouTube. You can watch it here.

"Deaf and hard of hearing people make up one of the largest minority groups," she said in an interview through her interpreter, Jack Jason, "and yet there has never been a show, a reality documentary series that features what life is like for them." Matlin financed the show, which tells the story of a family in Fremont, Calif. All the family members are deaf, except for the oldest son, Jared, and the youngest, Elijah. It is narrated by Jared.

Matlin shopped her pilot to network executives, who purported to "love it." But none would take the plunge.
"They didn't quite know if they could pull it off, or even how," Matlin said.

Refusing to give up, Matlin turned to the Internet, more specifically to YouTube, the world's default broadcaster of Web video.

"I didn't want to wait for the networks to warm up to the idea of whether the show would be a hit or not with audiences," she said. "So I decided to put it out there on my own terns. YouTube is akin to having my own [TV] network."

There's another reason Matlin chose YouTube. The Google subsidiary in November introduced an automatic captioning system for its videos. The system is a mash-up of Google's speech-to-text voice recognition technology used in Google Voice and captioning software that syncs the text with the video.

Right now, the experimental program can only recognize spoken English, but once transcribed, it can translate the text to 50 different languages.

"Google’s mission is to make all the world’s information universally accessible," explained Ken Harrenstien, the software engineer who led the captioning effort. "We’re about accessibility to everyone for everything."

Because YouTube is inundated with a constant stream of videos (about 24 hours of videos are uploaded to the site every minute), it does not automatically caption every piece that comes along. Instead, viewers have to request that a particular video be captioned. Once the request is made, it takes about 24 hours to deliver the captions.

Harrenstein cautions that the captions aren't going to be perfect. Ambient noise can affect the translation. But the software is also prone to error. YouTube is hoping that the owners of the videos will upload corrected captions through a quick process it has designed.

That's good enough for Matlin, who said, "The process isn't 100% there yet. But they've done it. And that's a good thing."

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star Chris Meloni grew up in Washington, D.C., but lives for New York City.

Trailer to Change for “Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives"


Pinky La’Trimm

The director of “Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives,” a movie planned for the Tribeca Film Festival that has set off a war of words before being screened there, said he would amend its trailer so it would not refer to real-life victims of violence.

In an e-mail message, Israel Luna, who wrote and directed the film, said he was inspired to create the movie “in part by the hate crimes against the trans community.” He said he included references in his trailer to Angie Zapata, a transgender woman who was beaten to death in Colorado in 2008, and to Jorge Mercado, a gay teenager who was murdered in Puerto Rico in 2009, “to give a disturbing reality to my film about transgender violence.”

“After listening to some of the voices in the trans community,” Mr. Luna said, “I’ve decided to remove those references from the trailer.”

A listing for the movie at tribecafilm.com had drawn angry comments, and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation had sought the movie’s removal from the festival, saying, “The film, its title and its marketing misrepresent the lives of transgender women and use grotesque, exploitative depictions of violence against transgender women.”

Lady Gaga to do new Bond theme song?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
LADY GAGA is reportedly in negotiations with moviebosses to record the next JAMES BOND theme tune.

Film chiefs are said to be keen to land the Poker Face hitmaker to perform the lead track for the forthcoming 007 movie, which will be directed by Sam Mendes.

A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Bond bosses are all huge Gaga fans. Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice.

"Gaga has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She's a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level."

Previous stars to record Bond themes include Dame Shirley Bassey and Sir Paul MCCartney.

'Glee' Exclusive: New details on the crazy upcoming Lady Gaga episode

We already knew that the Glee kids would be tackling Lady Gaga in their back nine episodes, set to begin airing on Fox April 13. But now we actually can tell you which Gaga tunes to get the choral overhaul: “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face.” The latter of the pair will be tackled by Lea Michele’s Rachel. Says creator Ryan Murphy, “Leah does a very stripped-down version of ‘Poker Face.’” Meanwhile, “Romance” sounds like a much more elaborate number, with the glee club actually donning Gaga-esque wardrobe for the performance. “I do know that we’re all different Lady Gagas, and at one point I am the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga,” says Michele, referring to this crazy ensemble worn by the pop star. “I saw a picture of the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga with a Post-It on it that said ‘Leah.’ I was like, oh, great. Everyone else has incredible Lady Gaga outfits and I have that one.” And it sounds like producers are making sure the costumes are up to par with the real Gaga’s eccentric wardrobe choices. Says Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, “The outfits are gonna be incredible. All the costumes are outrageous and legit. I actually went to the tailor this morning who makes the real Gaga outfits. They’re going all-out.”

First Official 'Best Worst Movie' Poster Debutes!



The first official poster for the documentary Best Worst Movie has debuted. Starring George Hardy and Michael Paul Stephenson, this film hits theaters April 23rd.

The documentary that takes us on an off-beat journey into the undisputed worst movie in cinematic history: Troll 2.

In 1989, when an Italian filmmaker and unwitting Utah actors shot the ultra-low budget horror film, Troll 2, they had no idea that twenty years later they would be celebrated worldwide for their legendary ineptitude.

Two decades later, the film’s now-grown-up child star (Michael Paul Stephenson) unravels the improbable, heartfelt story of the Alabama dentist-turned-cult movie icon and the Italian filmmaker who come to terms with this genuine, internationally revered cinematic failure.

Nazi enthusiast Jesse James had all sorts of sex while he was married to Sandra Bullock, including last year's foursome with a man and two women (one of whom was known mistress Michelle 'Bombshell' Mcgee) that may or may not have involved a latex glove. Jesse is currently in rehab, reportedly for sex addiction.

Life & Style's press release follows:

In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, tattoo artist and owner of Ocean Beach Tattoo and Piercing in San Diego, Eric McDougall, and receptionist, Skittles Valentine, confess to having a freaky foursome with Jesse James and Michelle "Bombshell" McGee last June - and Skittles had intercourse with Jesse without a condom.

The racy encounter took place one drunken night after the Ink-N-Iron tattoo festival last June while Sandra Bullock was busy promoting The Proposal. "Michelle came into my shop and was like, 'I'd like to introduce you to my boyfriend,'" Eric tells Life & Style. "I recognized Jesse right away."

War of Gods news

Stephen Dorff has rounded out the cast of Relativity Media's Greek mythology clash "War of the Gods," set to begin shooting in early April in Montreal.

Kellan Lutz, Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto also star with Tarsem Singh directing. Dorff will portray Stavros, a master thief who joins Theseus on his quest to help free Greece from the dark threat of the Titans.

source



Rogue Pictures has set a release date for Tarsem Singh’s 3D Greek fantasy War of Gods (or Dawn of War which is the title according to a few places). The film will be released on November 11th 2011, which currently has no major competition other than animated family movie Arthur Christmas.

War of Gods follows young warrior Theseus, who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind. Director Tarsem Singh said the film is “a really hardcore action film done in Renaissance painting style”, so at least it will be pleasing on the eyes even if it ends up sucking.

The cast currently consists of Henry Cavill as Theseus, Freida Pinto as oracle Phaedra, Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, and filming is expected to begin next week in Montreal.

Viral? Yes. Records sold? Not so much.



Los Angeles quirkballs OK Go are like powerpop's Roman Polanski, Michael Richards or Bill Grundy. No matter what they do, they're always going to be overshadowed by a stigma. They're "the treadmill guys", the band that practically invented the viral video after 50 million people watched them prancing around on some gym equipment. They haven't found any such success since. Their new album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, attempts to break free of their Weezer-meets-Keyboard Cat reputation; it's loaded with sultry electrofunk, pink robots, purple rains and midnight vultures. But critics have been treating it like Michael Jordan switching to baseball, every review beginning with some variant of "Sometimes, OK Go feel more like a prank than a band" (so said US magazine Entertainment Weekly). Their new video for This Too Shall Pass is another viral smash (8m views and counting), but their record sales have been nothing short of a disaster. It hasn't even sold 25,000 copies in the US. :(!

LL Cool J vs. Fox News, Sarah Palin

Fox News has an unlikely adversary: rapper LL Cool J.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After the network announced that Sarah Palin would host a special Thursday called "Real American Stories" — featuring an interview with LL Cool J, among other celebrities — the rapper hit back on Twitter claiming they were lying.

"Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW," he tweeted.

Fox News responded Wednesday morning, saying they would cut the footage of LL Cool J (aka James Todd Smith) from the special.

"Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria," a network spokesperson told TVNewser. "However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."

"If someone at Fox News Channel wishes you well, watch your back," the AP's David Bauder wrote in 2006. "The seemingly benign sentiment is a creative signature of Fox's public relations, usually accompanied by a kneecapping. It's something like a kiss from a Mafia don."

"Real American Stories" airs Thursday at 10PM (in place of "On the Record with Greta van Susteren) and will re-air on Sunday at 9PM.

Sandra Bullock Has No Plans to Adopt Jesse James's Kids

Despite reports, Sandra Bullock isn't aiming to become a legal parent to her husband's three kids.

"There are no plans, nor have there ever been any plans, for Sandra Bullock to adopt any of Jesse James's children," her rep tells PEOPLE.

James, 40, has been taking care of his kids Chandler, 15, and Jesse Jr., 12, and Sunny, 6, from his two previous marriages, since news of his alleged infidelity broke days after his wife of four years won her first Oscar. Friends of the couple have said the children’s welfare is the priority for both Bullock and James as they cope with the crisis in their marriage.

To date, four women have claimed to have had affairs with James during his marriage.

Just before the first allegations from a tattoo model and stripper were made public, Bullock, 45, left the home she shared with James in Los Angeles. She has been keeping a low profile ever since.

'Wire,' 'Treme' writer David Mills dies

David Mills, a writer and producer for some of the best TV shows of the past two decades - including "Homicide," "Picket Fences," "ER" and "The Wire" - has died, CNN has confirmed through HBO.

Mills reportedly died of a brain aneurysm Tuesday in New Orleans, where he was a writer and co-producer of the new HBO series "Treme". The show is scheduled for its premiere April 11.

"HBO is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our dear friend and colleague David Mills," the network said in a statement to CNN and HLN. "He was a gracious and humble man, and will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him, as well as those who were aware of his immense talent."

Mills was a newspaper reporter when he made the jump into TV writing with "Homicide," a series based on work by his friend and fellow reporter David Simon. The pair won a Writers Guild award for a "Homicide" script.

According to TV critic David Sepinwall, Mills was responsible for creating the character of Dr. Romano on "ER." He also won Emmys for his work on the HBO series "The Corner," another Simon project.

"Treme" has earned a great deal of advance press for its subject matter - a neighborhood in post-Katrina New Orleans - and its pedigree, including Simon and other "Wire" veterans. Simon and the show were the subject of a major New York Times Magazine story earlier in March.

Mills was 48.

Dear Hollywood: STOP IT! (Part 1)


“Private Benjamin” is being called up to duty again


New Line is remaking the seminal 1980 comedy, reconfiguring it for the new century as a starring vehicle for Anna Faris.

Amy Talkington is in discussions to write the new take, to be produced by Mark Gordon.
“Benjamin” starred Goldie Hawn in a star-making turn as a spoiled woman who joins the Army after her husband dies during sex on their wedding night. One of the top-grossing movies of that year, “Benjamin” was hailed for tackling women’s issues and earned three Oscar noms — for Hawn, supporting actress Eileen Brennan and original screenplay (Nancy Meyers, Charles Shyer and Harvey Miller).

The title joins “Vacation” and “Police Academy” as the latest titles from the Warner Bros. library that New Line is remaking.

The new take will set the story in contemporary times with modern wars as the backdrop. Insiders say the studio doesn’t want to poke fun at the men and women in the service or take political potshots, but rather focus on the empowerment elements and build on the fish-out-of-water comedy.

Michelle Weiss is overseeing for the studio.

Talkington, repped by UTA and the Arlook Group, penned a remake of 1980s classic “Valley Girl,” which is set up at MGM. The scribe has shown she can pen a female voice with Fox’s “Queen of the Rodeo,” about teenage girls competing for the title of rodeo queen, and “Devil in the Junior League,” a Universal comedy centering on a spurned wife who is forced to transform a vulgar woman into a role model for a women’s organization.

Faris, one of the few comediennes who can open a movie, is set to star in her latest comedy, “What’s Your Number?” which is to begin shooting this spring. She’s repped by Gersh and Raw Talent Management.

Dear Hollywood: STOP IT! (Part 2)


Baywatch to become a movie

The long-buzzed about Baywatch Movie is finally seeing the light of day.

Producers of Paramount’s highly-anticipated big screen debut of Baywatch have hired two new writers to pen a screenplay for the proposed comedy. Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, who penned upcoming Jonah Hill comedy The Sitter, have joined the Baywatch writing team, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie — which insiders are comparing to the screen adaptations of Charlie’s Angels and the slapstick Police Academy comedies of the 1980s — will be centered around the female members of the lifeguard squad.

Baywatch, which starred David Hasselhoff, Yasmeen Bleeth, and Pamela Anderson, ran on TV from 1989 to 1999. The small screen hit later spawned the spinoff Baywatch Nights and the 2003 reunion movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.

Baywatch: The Movie is expected to hit theaters next summer.

Cracking the Coming Out Code: Clues from Ricky Martin, Sean Hayes, Rosie, Lance Bass



Cracking the Coming Out Code with Clues from Ricky Martin & Sean Hayes

The world responded to Ricky Martin’s revelation with a collectively snarky “obvs.” But despite our complete and total awareness of Martin’s homosexuality, he seemed like the kind of guy that just might never come out. But does that “kind of guy” (or gal) even exist anymore or is it just a matter of time for everyone these days? Whether the celeb outed by someone else, comes out to support gay rights or an upcoming memoir or was never closeted at all — the gayspores are multiplying. Fast!

All the joking about Ricky Martin (and last month about Sean Hayes) does miss something. Firstly, who are we to question why Martin or Hayes took so long to come out — many of us did, too, and like Martin, many of us chose a more politically tolerant time to step forward. Secondly, think about how scary it was/is for you to imagine coming out to just your facebook network, let alone millions of human beings who are poised to have opinions about you. Yes, it was obvious. Yes, we all knew. But closeting isn’t always about self-loathing or hypocrisy or sinister, selfish agendas (as perhaps Perez Hilton must say it is in order to sleep at night); it’s about naked, tentative fear. The longer a secret lasts, the bigger and scarier it becomes. And for many young stars with thriving careers who prompt our are-they-or-aren’t-they convos (Ellen Page, Kristen Stewart, Zachary Quinto); why risk a bump in their career path if they don’t have to?

Back in the good old days, the “writing about your secret gay life” thang was reserved for a celebrity’s post-mortem biographer, as it was for stars like Raymond Burr, Greta Garbo, Merv Griffin, James Dean, Marlene Dietrich, and Robert Reed. Most gay actors & actresses lived and died in the closet, and being “out” from the get-go was almost unheard of. But now celebrities are taking the biography into their own hands. Typically composed a good 5-10 years after the actor’s career has peaked, this coordination is crucial for both artistic and marketing reasons.

News of the Day: Jim Belushi's a douche.



Jim Belushi's trip to Las Vegas got off to a bad start on Sunday after a mid-air argument with a flight attendant prompted the pilot to call police.

The funnyman was said to have angrily ranted at an American Airlines staff member who tried to wake him from a nap as their flight from Los Angeles began its descent towards in Sin City.

The captain subsequently phoned the tower and requested authorities to meet Belushi at the gate but cops concluded no crime had been committed and let the star go.

His rep tells TMZ.com, "American Airlines could not have handled the situation better to ensure his safety. Next time he wants to take a 40-minute nap, he'll be booking American Airlines."

Dr. Drew Says Jesse James Is No Tiger




They're both in the headlines for serial infidelity, but Tiger Woods and Jesse James are hardly in the same boat, says 'Celebrity Rehab' host Dr. Drew Pinsky. In a RadarOnline.com interview, the love doctor believes Sandra Bullock and her allegedly cheating husband James have no chance, whereas "Tiger and Elin were very much in love at some point, and that was a very genuine love. They have two children together, a family, and many, many experiences together, and many reasons to try and make their marriage work."
In Bullock's case, Pinksy says, "If I were treating Sandra, I would advise her to leave Jesse James. They don't have a long life together, it's been a relatively short-term relationship. There is no doubt to me that this relationship is over. Jesse is a sex addict and Sandra is a love addict. Sex addicts go for power and intensity, and that intensity is probably what attracted Sandra to Jesse. However, that intensity is not love, it's addiction. Sandra probably didn't give Jesse that level of intensity that he got with the mistresses."

He questions Bullock's attraction to a man who seems, on the surface, so unsuitable. "What is going on with her?" Pinksy asks. "Jesse is probably a very nice guy, but it's simply not a good combo for a sex addict and a love addict to be in a relationship. I'm going to make a prediction that Jesse is probably not going to change."

The 'Loveline' host suggests that Sandra needs "therapy to deal with what has happened. She is probably devastated."

Pinsky adds, "
I would guess she would need at least a couple of years. She needs individual treatment. I would guess she could start to date in at least six months."

My boo Pinksy makes sense.  I think Sandra got some issues herself. Either way, Jesse James, you a bitch! woot woot!

Video: Janelle Monae: "Tightrope"



The video for soul futurist Janelle Monae's "Tightrope" features OutKast's Big Boi, big bow ties, super slick and inventive choreography, and even an appearance from those mirror men from Yeasayer's "Ambling Alp" clip (originally seen in Maya Deren's experimental 1943 film Meshes of the Afternoon).
"Tightrope" was recently named Best New Track by this very website.

Monae's debut LP, The ArchAndroid, is due out May 18 courtesy of Wondaland Arts Society/Bad Boy.

I love the Meshes of the Afternoon reference, but other than that...meh. The song is good though.

Justin Bieber Tops Billboard 200 With 'My World 2.0'





 

Justin Bieber debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with "My World 2.0," after shifting 283,000 copies in its first week. It's the teenager's second album and first No. 1. His first set, "My World," debuted at No. 6 upon its release last November. This week it rises to a new peak, scooting from No. 10 to No. 5 with 50,000 (up 50%).

  

At 16-years old, Bieber is the youngest solo male artist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since Aug. 24, 1963, when the then-13-year old Stevie Wonder spent one week at No. 1 with "Little Stevie Wonder/The 12 Year Old Genius." (Wonder recorded the album when he was 12, but released it after turning 13.) "My World 2.0's" opening frame is also Bieber's best sales week, surpassing his previous high, when the first "My World" sold 157,000 copies over Christmas week of 2009.

Thus, with albums at Nos. 1 and 5, Bieber is the first act to concurrently chart two albums within the top five of the Billboard 200 since the chart dated Oct. 9, 2004.

Ronald McDonald Pushed To Retire

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A push is on to force Ronald McDonald to retire.

A coalition of health professionals, parents and corporate accountability advocates will be holding a retirement party at noon in Chicago on Wednesday in hopes of forcing the McDonald's spokesman to retire.

The group, Corporate Accountability International, claims he has too much influence on children and is fueling childhood obesity.

The group has waged previous campaigns against bottle water companies and tobacco companies, such as, Joe Camel from Camel cigarettes.

A spokeswoman for McDonald's said the company wasn't invited to the party, but said Ronald's role hasn't changed.

It has always been about bringing out the fun side of having meals with family.

"He is the heart and soul of Ronald McDonald House Charities, which lends a helping hand to families in their time of need," McDonald's told the Chicago Tribune newspaper in a written statement.

"Ronald also helps deliver messages to families on many important subjects such as safety, literacy and the importance of physical activity and making balanced food choices," the company said.

Dear Hollywood: STOP IT! (Part 3)


'Harold and Kumar' sequel to be done in 3D?

New Line has set a summer start date on the third installment of the Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle franchise, with the Warner Bros-based company about to hire a director, and seriously considering doing the film in 3D.

The film is Christmas-themed, giving Warner Bros a nice R-rated holiday release for 2011 or 2012. The biggest significance is that the start date signals the return of Kal Penn, who put his career on hold to take the position of associate director of the White House Office Of Public Engagement.

The politically conscious actor gave up a lot to take the job--his doctor character, Lawrence Kutner, was killed off from the Fox drama House--but it was done with the understanding that he'd commit to the position for one year. As to the idea of leaving a prestige D.C. post to reprise in a stoner comedy, well, a guy's got to make a living, right?

Letters to Amanda: Get Love Advice From 'Letters to Juliet' Star Amanda Seyfried

On May 14, Amanda Seyfried will take moviegoers on a 'Romeo and Juliet'-inspired trip to Italy in the highly anticipated 'Letters to Juliet.'

In the movie, Seyfried plays Sophie, a young New Yorker who travels to Verona (aka the city where Romeo first met Juliet) with her fiance, played by Gael Garcia Bernal. There, she discovers a wall in which people write letters to Juliet asking for her advice about love. Hidden inside the wall is an unanswered letter from 1957, which leads Sophie on a quest to reunite its author (Vanessa Redgrave) with her long-lost love.

In preparation for the movie, Seyfried is exclusively teaming with
Moviefone to answer love letters from our users.

Need advice about your boyfriend or girlfriend? Are you having trouble confessing your feelings to a crush? Here's how to get help: First, record a video on YouTube or write a love letter with your questions for Amanda. When you're finished, post the URL or written letter in the comments section [
ON THE ORIGINAL MOVIEFONE POST HERE]. Amanda will then choose the best ones and respond in an exclusive video that will tape when Moviefone travels to Verona at the end of next month.

Letters are due no later than Apr. 23.

SHOCKER:Amy Winehouse Album Delayed


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What's caused the hold-up?

According to sources, Amy Winehouse's album will not meet its planned release date, due to some changes to the track listing.

It seems Winehouse had written and recorded some less-than-friendly songs about ex-husband Blake, with whom she has now reconciled. She is removing those tracks from the album and replacing them with new material, which she is currently writing. The source adds:

"She's not going to put out an album just because her record company wants her to, so it's back to the drawing board."


source

Hm,well since she is removing all the "bad" songs about Blake from the album, I doubt this album will come anywhere near B2B.

Eminem chasing Donkey Kong World Record, invited to make official score submission

Hank Chien? Billy Mitchell? Steve Wiebe? How about Eminem?
The famed hip hop artist has Twitter buzzing today over a photo of his new personal best on Donkey Kong, an impressive mark of 465,800 points.
While a photograph cannot be used to submit such a score to Twin Galaxies officially, I'm curious enough to try to reach out to the star and see about trying to arrange a way to do an official submission. After all, Conan O'Brien never replied to my invite, but perhaps the real Slim Shady might.
While a far cry from Hank Chien's Donkey Kong World Record score of 1,061,700 points, Eminem's personal best would rank in Twin Galaxies top 20 for the classic game, which has seemingly become a mainstream challenge and pop culture entry since a certain movie came out in 2007.
Should an official submission be made, interestingly, Eminem would not be the only celebrity ranked on Donkey Kong. Saturday Night Live's Will Forte is currently ranked 47th at Twin Galaxies, with a score of 116,500 points.
I'll leave the readers of this column up to the challenge of spreading the link to this column to a viral level and let's see if we can't get word back to Eminem. Perhaps he could come to Funspot XII in early June, or a Twin Galaxies referee near him could pay him a visit, or perhaps he could swing by Denton, TX and play on the machine Wiebe used to take a shot at the E3 Expo last year.
Let's see if we can't make this official.

usher is gonna be #1 next week



Usher proves you can’t have too many hits.  With three smash singles at Urban radio, “There Goes My Baby,” “Lil’ Freak” and “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” the LaFace/JLG R&B star’s Raymond v Raymond album will debut at #1 on next week’s HITS sales chart, sporting a total now pegged at 330-350k, which may even climb higher on anticipation of a busy Easter weekend at retail.

That’s based on one-day sales reports from those retailers who haven’t either joined the Tea Party or been cast in Sarah Palin’s Alaska reality series.

Usher scored a combined, weekly audience of 44.6 million at Urban radio for all three singles, along with more than 1.5 million downloads and ringtones even before the album's release yesterday.  

Universal Motown’s Erykah Badu will be the next-highest newcomer, with 110-120k in sales for her new album, New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), fueled by the controversial “nude” video for the first single, “Window Seat.” The clip, inspired by Matt and Kim’s Times Square disrobing, “Lessons Learned,” takes place by the grassy knoll in her hometown DallasDealey Plaza at the site of the JFK assassination.
Arista Nashville’s Alan Jackson is back with Freight Train, on track for 60-70k in first-week sales.

Former Wu members Meth + Ghost + Rae return with Wu-Massacre for Def Jam/IDJ, which appears to be in the 40-50k range. The album features Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon teaming up for the first time since Wu-Tang Clan.

The market was up 7% vs. last week, down 11% vs. same week last year and still down 8% year to date. You may now return, like us, to contemplating how we ever lived without our BlackBerries.


tbqh, queen erykah should have been #1.  his album sucks and he was such a douche on idol.

I spent too long trying to think of a sonic screwdriver pun..


NEW Doctor Who Matt Smith was stopped at Heathrow airport - for taking a SONIC SCREWDRIVER through security.

The 27-year-old actor was flying to Belfast when a scanner revealed the iconic prop in his hand luggage.

Baffled security officials, who did not recognise the new Time Lord, pulled him to one side believing the harmless gadget to be a weapon.

And Matt had to quickly explain what it was - and who he was.

A source said: "Matt's a huge fan of the screwdriver so didn't think anything of carrying it with him on the plane. It's basically just a fake prop and doesn't exactly do much.

"But going through the X-ray scanner it probably looks like a weapon, albeit something you'd see in Star Wars.

"Matt was very polite and explained what the screwdriver was. But the guards just looked puzzled. Fortunately he had some Doctor Who promo material on him so was able to show them who he was.

"Once the penny dropped and they had a proper look at the screwdriver, they let him through."

Matt last night admitted he had become attached to the device. He said: "I like to have it about my person at all times, just twirling it around and flicking it."

He confessed he had already broken four of them.

Is that a source in your pocket, or are you pleased to see me?

Dear Howard Stern,
 

Gabourey Sidibe is doing just fine, thank you very much!
 

Despite the shock jock's controversial remarks that the Precious Oscar nominee will have trouble getting more work in Hollywood because of her size, a source exclusively tells me that...
 

Ms. Sidibe is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! "It literally just happened," my source said of the deal.
 

No word on an exact date yet. Jennifer Lopez hosts this Saturday, followed by Tina Fey and Ryan Phillippe. And as most of us already know, Betty White gets the honors on May 8.
 

SNL is not—we repeat, not—the only gig Sidibe has scored since her feature film debut. She has a recurring role on Showtime's upcoming The Big C, about a teacher (Laura Linney) living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of her sassy students. The series, which is set to premiere in August, also costars Oliver Platt.
 

Sidibe also made a hilarious post-Oscar appearance on E!'s very own show The Soup.

Congrats! Looks like My World 2.0 burned up the charts in its first week, solidifying your status as the hottest young thing in music. Releasing your second album a mere four months after your debut—My World, which produced seven Hot 100 singles—is a smart move, my friend. You seem to have a realistic understanding of the way things work around here, and you're wise to try to milk this success for as long as you can.

But why is everyone so taken with how sweeping your appeal is? The riots of screaming girls at the mall, the rabid fans stalking your hotels, the crying three-year-olds professing their love to you—this is a tale as old as time, and we can look to a few different factors that are working in your favor:

June Havoc (better known as Gypsy Rose Lee's sister) passes away

By Lynn Edwards
Mar 30, 2010

Baby June has passed away. June Havoc whose childhood in vaudeville was immortalized in the musical "Gypsy," has died in Connecticut at age 97, her publicist said Monday, according to an AP Report.


She was an actor and a writer and dubbed a "celebrated strip tease artiste" and was billed as "Baby June" in her early career.

The Washington Post reveals that she "achieved an enduring place in popular culture because of the character she inspired in the 1959 Stephen Sondheim-Jule Styne-Arthur Laurents musical "Gypsy." The show, based on her sister's memoir about their tyrannical mother, was a Broadway hit and became a theatrical staple."

***

The paper has a feature here on the actress and writer. Bloomberg notes the show was subtitled 'a musical fable' after June Havoc objected to her portrayal. She wrote two memoirs, "Early Havoc" and "More Havoc," to tell her own story about her differences with the story presented.
Source

R.I.P. At least she got to live a long full live, which I can't say for a lot of people in Hollywood.
Although a long time ago, I read somewhere that to escape her stage mother, she married some dude and had a baby when she was 14. I know it was a different time but what. the. FUCK?!? DD:

Fierce bitch has made it to Broadway baby!

John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s “Hedwig & the Angry Inch” is heading to Broadway this fall.



Nearly a decade after JCM adapted his off-Broadway musical for the big screen (the film won the audience award at Sundance in 2001), he’s planning to reprise his role as the German transgender rocker in a new edition of the show in New York’s theater district.

“I haven’t acted since I did the movie,” he told the New York Post today. “The role is so hard and so challenging that it made me give up acting and concentrate on writing and directing. It’s like Hamlet. Except that Hamlet doesn’t have to sing 15 great songs. In a dress.”

Reached by email this afternoon Mitchell told indieWIRE that he’s currently looking for a Broadway venue for the return. David Binder, producer of the off-Broadway show, is on board with the show’s original director, Peter Askin.

It's a carwash ladies and gentlemen!

Lady Gaga hits the Zoo in Brisbane (Australia) on her birthday!

For a woman who could have done anything for her birthday, it's nice to see Lady Gaga saw in the big day supporting Brisbane's live music scene.

The megastar was being chauffeured home from her show on Saturday night when she heard the sounds of They Are Spies blaring from The Zoo.

Gaga got her car to pull over before she slipped in to the indie music haunt to see the Brissie band.

"We had one song to go and one of my friends in the crowd came up to me and goes 'Lady Gaga's up the back' and I went 'What? Good on ya'," frontman Jeremy Trigatti (pictured far right) tells Confidential.

The funk/alt rock act finished their set then heard LG wanted to meet them.

"She told me that she was just driving past and she heard the music and she was like 'Yep, let's go here'," he says.

"She was very sweet. She said she really enjoyed the show and she liked the passion that we had. She just said keep going – 'Keep doing what you're doing and don't give up'."

Trigatti – who is studying to be a high school drama teacher – was dressed in a muu-muu during the performance, while their guitarist was in a nappy.

"Gaga actually said 'I loved your muu-muu. It's something that I'd wear'."

Simon is not a fan of "Dancing With The Stars"



Simon Cowell is ready to rumble. On Tuesday night, the 'American Idol' judge had some fighting words for competitor 'Dancing With the Stars.'

During his critique of contestant Didi Benami, the saucy Brit judge threw in a sly jab at the sequined reality competitor on another channel.

"You have no longer made yourself contemporary, everything is too old-fashioned. If you listen to one of those dancing shows, they always have a singer murdering a song on it," Simon said as fellow judge Randy Jackson laughed in the background.

He didn't stop there.

"If you've ever watched it," he added. "That's what it [sounds like]."

As the crowd booed at the clear jab, Jackson goaded him on, asking, "Whoa, what sort of dancing show?"

There was no need to answer. Though the cranky Cowell gave a knowing guilty twitch at his candidly aggressive remarks, he offered the riled-up crowd a cocked eyebrow coupled with a Cheshire grin.

We won't hold our breaths for an apology. Could a Cowell-led dance-off be the only way to lasting peace?

Heavy Metal Rocker Ronnie James Dio treated for Cancer in Houston

HOUSTON - He's been called the "Grand Wizard of Classic Rock" and a heavy metal icon, but for the past few months 67-year-old Ronnie James Dio has been known as a cancer patient.

"Why come to Houston? It's the best hospital, " Dio said as he got ready for a round of chemotherapy at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Monday.

Dio has been going to M.D. Anderson since late last year when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

"I've been poked and prodded in holes I never had before," Dio said.

Dio is soft-spoken and relaxed during treatment, it's a different persona then most people are used to seeing. He's been the front-man for groups like "Black Sabbath", "Rainbow" and currently he's the lead vocalist for "Dio." He made the "devil's horn" hand gesture part of the Heavy Metal culture.

Those hands now get support from wife Wendy, nurses and doctors. Dio first noticed symptoms after Halloween. He felt chest-pain and indigestion that eventually led to the cancer diagnosis. Dio now comes to Houston every two weeks for treatment.

"I'm lucky that I'm a hard person in terms of my beliefs," said Dio.

Dio then has a direct message for the tumor in his stomach: "Cancer, I'll kick the hell out of you."

"Ronnie is a very feisty person, He's taking in in stride. He just wants to get on with his life," Wendy Dio said.

Getting on with life means flying in from Los Angeles, five hours of chemotherapy, then flying back home. Sometimes band members, like bass player Geezer Butler, come for support.

Wendy Dio is always with him. The treatment seems to be working, Wendy Dio said the tumor is getting smaller, all of this in a man with a very big voice who expects to go back on tour soon.

"The fans have been incredible, it proves to me that I've done something right with my life," said Dio.
