Brendon was charged with one count resisting arrest, two counts of battery against a police officer and one count of vandalism.

As we first reported, law enforcement sources say they received a call on March 17 that a drunk guy was causing a commotion in Venice, CA.

When cops arrived, we're told Brendon tried to throw a few punches at 'em ... then took off on foot ... until cops caught up and tasered his ass -- twice.

Brendon -- who faces two years in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted -- is due back in court on April 7 for his arraignment.

Coolio No Longer a Wanted Man

Coolio can now walk the streets without being arrested on sight.

We're told the rapper finally showed up to court yesterday for his progress report hearing -- which means the $10,000 bench warrant that was issued on Monday for his arrest is no longer active.

According to court officials, Coolio was able to prove he's in compliance with the terms of his probation -- including his participation in a drug rehabilitation program.

Coolio pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance back in June, after he was arrested at LAX airport with crack.

Coolio is due back in court on January 18, 2011 ... that is, if he can actually make it there on time.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution: French fries considered a vegetable

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution could yield a spin-off: Alice’s “Your Food Is A Pain In The Butt To Cook” Resistance. Alice, the Huntington, West Virginia, elementary-school lunch worker, is proving to be the British cook’s greatest adversary. This week, in his quest to rid the unhealthy-eating town of processed, fatty food, Oliver brought in some extra help for the five-woman Huntington cook-staff, but Alice still resented Jamie’s new menu. “The chicken was tasteless,” she said flatly. “Alice bitch-slapped me!” said a mock-stunned Jamie to the camera. The only person who likes Jamie less is the local disc jockey Rod, who told his listeners, “When he leaves, we’re going right back to what we were eating [before].” Call him cynical, but as much as I like Jamie, my gut tells me Rod speaks the truth. There’s been at least one report saying that the “food revolution” isn’t really taking hold once the cameras are turned off.

“Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway Opening Night – Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This weekend Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the “Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway opening night in New York.

I’m sorry, but I struggle to take these two seriously as fashion icons.

I’ve never understood the appeal, and I don’t think I ever will with all due respect to them and their fans.

Despite Easter being all about Spring whites and fluffy bunnies the twins looked like they were on their way to a Tim Burton convention.

Although Mary-Kate tried to break-up her black gothic glam head-to-toe look with a white Proenza Schouler clutch, this look is still too dark for my liking – although Ashley dress with the bows is cute.

The biggest question is why did they need to wear those ridiculously big sunglasses at night?

Can 'Iron Man 2' beat 'The Dark Knight'?

Exactly one month from Wednesday Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and the other personalities of "Iron Man" will return to make witty mayhem in the superhero sequel.

And exactly three days after that, we could have a new domestic box-office record.

Stark himself, never lacking in suave self-confidence, probably wouldn't make such a bold boast. But it's entirely feasible.

According to just-released tracking surveys, director Jon Favreau's second installment in the Marvel franchise is showing astonishing levels of interest and awareness well ahead of its three-day opening next month. There are enough statistical indications to think the first-weekend gross could top the $158.4-million "Dark Knight" haul, the current record-holder for the biggest (non inflation-adjusted) opening weekend.

Christopher Nolan's Batman sequel grossed that amount when it opened over a three-day weekend in July 2008. The same spring/summer period brought the release of "Iron Man." The character was new to mainstream audiences, star Robert Downey Jr. had yet to engineer his Hollywood comeback and Favreau was riding a cold streak ("Zathura: A Space Adventure," anyone?). The movie still opened to an impressive $98 million, and went on to gross more than $318 million domestically.

But this year's sequel opening on May 7 should pulverize that figure. Thanks in part to Downey, the Paramount-distributed film is drawing as much (strong) interest among women over 30 as it is among women in their 20s, the tracking surveys show. Males in their teens and 20s are so keen on the film they may as well dress up in an iron suit. About the only people who aren't fully sold are teen girls, but there are signs of robustness there too.

16 year old Jessica Watson nears end of her solo sailing trip around the world

Teenage adventurer Jessica Watson is finding ways to keep busy as she slowly closes in on home soil.
The 16-year-old solo sailor is about 500 nautical miles from Western Australia's Cape Leeuwin, the state's most southern point.
She's expected to pass the landmark in the next week, before bracing herself for the notorious waters of the Bass Strait, on her marathon quest to circumnavigate the world unassisted.
Watson has been on the high seas for 172 days since leaving Sydney on October 18 in her customised 10-metre pink sloop, Ella's Pink Lady.
She's due to cross the finish line in Sydney Harbour in six weeks' time, six months after setting off on her voyage.
"She is certainly in the Australian search and rescue area - she has been in that for a fair while now," her mother Julie Watson told ABC Radio today.
"It's certainly nice to have in her home territory.I'm probably getting more nervous than anything now. She's been at sea for a long time and parts on the boat have ... had a bit of a thrashing too."
The young sailor successfully conquered 40 knot winds around Cape Horn in January but she remains nervous about her looming journey through the Bass Strait.
"The Southern Ocean under Australia ... is pretty well known for throwing people around," Julie Watson said.

The teenager has likened being on the high seas to riding a roller coaster.
"A roller coaster with sudden stops and random sideways jerks, add a bit of noise and a lot of water," she wrote.

Gabourey Sidibe's Mother Aims To Be The Next Susan Boyle

Precious star Gabourey Sidibe's mom, Alice Tan Ripley, who has been performing in New York City subways for the past few years, has scored an upcoming appearance on America’s Got Talent. Ridley, who says she hasn’t yet gotten a chance to tell her Oscar-nominated daughter the news, hopes the appearance serves as a stepping stone to greater fame: “It’s a big break for me and I would like to follow in Susan Boyle’s footsteps and become a star in my own right.” Hopefully minus the nervous breakdown and rehab stint part.


Saw her once at the Herald Square train station, and she was amazing.

Lady GaGa borrows a look from Christina Aguilera

Lady Gaga changes her image to look like Christina Aguilera

Lady Gaga has transformed herself – yet again – into a glamorous Hollywood bombshell taking on the likes of Christina Aguilera and Madonna.

The normally whacky dresser showed off her slim physique in a sexy black body for an exclusive photo shoot with Cosmopolitan magazine.

She wore her hair blonde and curly with no yellow or pink streaks in sight and her barnett made her image heavily resemble that of stage diva Christian Aguilera, especially with the blood-red lipstick she pouted in.

In an exclusive interview in the magazine, Gaga admitted that her beauty is new-found as she spoke of her high school days: ‘I had a very big nose, very curly brown hair and I was overweight. I got made fun of.’

Ellen Degeneres Accused of Hating America By Family Feud Contestant

Ellen Degeneres Accused of Hating America By Family Feud Contestant

This family was doing great at naming facts about Ellen Degeneres...until it was dad's turn.

(Ellen actually watches a clip on her show. I know someone who was at the taping and we always wondered if they would actually air it. The audience was mostly gobsmacked by the statement. I think they "sweetened" it with applause later.)

from Jezebel: Less amusing: Family Feud contestant Mike Sutton. When asked for "Something that everyone knows about Ellen Degeneres," he answered: "She doesn't like our country very well."

Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel on Dancing with the Stars

(CBS) Dancing with two broken toes, Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek earned the top score of the evening - 26 out of 30- Monday night on "Dancing with the Stars" for his quickstep about a spat between husband and wife because the wife was running late.

And with a host of tabloid favorites dancing - Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson and reality TV veteran Kate Gosselin - it was none other than comedian Niecy Nash who drew the headlines with her tears.

The dance that had everyone talking - and speculating - Tuesday morning was Nash's Viennese waltz with professional dancer Louis Van Amstel. Challenged by the judges to tell a story through dance this week, the two chose a story about an interracial romance in the 1960s.

In rehearsal, Nash spoke about how much she loved her boyfriend and said she coundn't imagine not being able to be with the person she loves because it was illegal. Van Amstel said it was a way to show "how far we have come" and then added that he still was fighting his own battle, in an apparent reference to the illegality of gay marriage in California.

On the dance floor, Nash ended her waltz with tears. In an interview afterward with co-host Brooke Burke, Van Amstel said he wanted to celebrate the strides of the last four decades, adding "everyone should be able to get married." The two earned kudos for their performance but only 21 out of 30 points for their dance.

Rihanna’s engaged?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
There’s buzz that Rihanna is rocking an engagement ring now!

A source close the singer and her new beau Matt Kemp told Bossip.com that the MLB player recently asked Rihanna to be his wife. 

“Matt surprised Rihanna last week when he approached her and asked for her hand in marriage,” the tipster said. “She said yes, but also relayed the message of feeling that this may be too soon and a long engagement should follow.”

This is huge news considering that neither Rihanna nor Matt has confirmed that they are actually a couple. While they remain tight-lipped about their relationship, the two have made some very big gestures befitting serious coupledom.

According to E! News, Rihanna met Matt’s parent last month at a fundraiser he was hosting. She was spotted visiting him at training camp about a week later.

Lionel Richie Planning Wedding Concert

Lionel Richie wants his pop star pals to sing at his daughter Nicole's wedding.

The 'Dancing on the Ceiling' singer is planning to invite a host of musicians to Nicole and her fiance Joel Madden's impending nuptials and is hoping they all take to the stage at some point during the evening.

A source told heat magazine: "All of the biggest names in music are getting an invite. Lionel is asking some to sing. He wants the reception to be a big concert."

Among those expected to attend are Tina Turner, Rihanna, 50 Cent and Leona Lewis and 60-year-old Lionel also intends to serenade the newlyweds himself.

Nicole, 28, and Good Charlotte rocker Joel, 31, have already started planning their big day - which is rumoured to be taking place later this year - and proud dad Lionel has previously admitted he can't wait to walk his daughter down the aisle.

The singer - who legally adopted Nicole when she was nine but has raised her since the age of two - said: "My happiness for Nicole and Joel knows no boundaries. They have given me two beautiful grandchildren, Harlow and Sparrow, and have proven to be great parents.

"I am not sure who is luckier, Nicole and Joel to have each other, or me, to have both of them in my life. I cannot wait to give away the bride!"

Nicole and Joel have two children, two-year-old daughter Harlow and six-month-old son Sparrow.

Justin Bieber receives praise from Rihanna

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna and Justin Bieber both performed at the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards, and the two artists have quite a history of supporting one another. The "Rude Boy" singer famously planted a kiss on Justin's cheek in December of last year, and now she is taking the time to praise his contributions to the music industry:

"He has locked into an audience that have been missing someone for so long. They're going to grow with him because he seems very real - he's not forcing anything."

Justin, being always the gentleman, thanked Rihanna for the compliment on his Twitter page.

If nothing else, the "Baby" singer has injected life into a market that was looking for a star of his caliber to compete against Disney superstars like Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. Not only does Justin have serious musical chops (as he can perform a variety of instruments), but he also has developed a devoted fan base who will watch his TV appearances and go out in droves to buy his music.

Martina Navratilova Has Breast Cancer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The disease was detected early, and the prognosis is said to be excellent.

"I cried," Navratilova, 53, tells PEOPLE about the moment in February when a biopsy came back positive after a routine mammogram revealed a cluster in her left breast. "It knocked me on my ass, really. I feel so in control of my life and my body, and then this comes, and it's completely out of my hands."

She was diagnosed with a non-invasive form of breast cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS, which in her case was confined to the milk ducts and had not spread to the breast tissue. "It was the best-case scenario you could imagine for detecting breast cancer," Dr. Mindy Nagle, a good friend of Navratilova's (and her ob gyn), tells PEOPLE.

Navratilova had a lumpectomy and will begin six weeks of radiation therapy in May.

Dr. Shelley Hwang, a breast surgeon at UC San Francisco, says DCIS strikes almost 70,000 American women annually and accounts for about one-fifth of all new diagnosed breast cancers. "The prognosis of someone with DCIS is excellent," she says. "There's only a one-percent chance of anyone with this diagnosis would die of breast cancer."

The nine-time Wimbledon champion, who still plays tennis and ice hockey and competes in triathlons, says she is lucky, as she had not been getting regular checkups.

"I went four years between mammograms," she tells PEOPLE. "I let it slide. Everyone gets busy, but don't make excuses. I stay in shape and eat right, and it happened to me. Another year and I could have been in big trouble."

'Desperate Housewives' all support Nicollette Sheridan, but won't dish on drama with Marc Cherry

The "Desperate Housewives" are keeping their lips sealed when it comes to Nicollette Sheridan's war with producer Marc Cherry.

A source close to the gals on Wisteria Lane says that while they all have had enough of his antics, no one will come forward to say so.

"Marc can sometimes think he's being funny, but he really just comes off as arrogant and rude," says the insider. "But the women mostly put up with it. He's considered a genius at what he does, and it kind of just comes with the territory."

The snitch adds that while Teri Hatcher is equally distressed by Cherry's overbearing behavior, she's unlikely to join Nicollette in her fight.

"Sometimes Teri doesn't appreciate Marc's 'humor,'" says the source, while a rep for Hatcher didn't comment by deadline. "But that doesn't mean she's going to get involved with this mess anytime soon."

What a mess, indeed: Sheridan has filed a $20 million wrongful termination suit against ABC, alleging that Cherry not only humiliated her on set - but in one incident hit her.

"There are some people who think Nicollette's claims may be exaggerated, but there are others who think Marc could be capable of such an outrage," says our snitch.

What do Sheridan's other former neighbors - like Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross - have to say about the matter? Not much.

"They're all silently behind her, but the actresses on the show enjoy the fame and success that Marc has created for them," says our spy. "It's unlikely that anyone will step forward to support Nicollette - their characters are all still alive on the show, and they have a lot more to lose than she does."

Sheridan knows that better than anyone. The blond bombshell claims that Cherry's dislike for her is the reason her character, Edie Britt, was killed off the show in February 2009.

Although ABC didn't respond to a request for comment by deadline, execs did release a statement observing that this isn't the first time Sheridan has cried foul.

Said a rep for the network, "While we have yet to see the actual complaint, we investigated similar claims made by Ms. Sheridan last year and found them to be without merit."

'Breaking Dawn': 'Dreamgirls''s Bill Condon is the first choice for the last two 'Twilight' films

Sources confirm that Bill Condon is in negotiations to direct Breaking Dawn, which Summit Entertainment now plans to break into two films. Over the last month, the studio met with a high-caliber group of directors that also included Milk director Gus Van Sant and Mean Girls’ director Mark Waters. Sophia Coppola expressed huge interest in the franchise but dropped out after revealing that she only wanted to direct one of the two films. Condon, Van Sant and Waters met both with Summit and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.

If all works as planned, Condon will spend the next year in Vancouver shooting Breaking Dawn. The studio has not yet confirmed the news, nor will they reveal their release plans for the films. In terms of how the movies will be split, sources tell EW.com that the wedding, honeymoon, Bella’s pregnancy, and the birth will all be told in the first movie, while part two will focus on Bella’s transformation into a vampire and Jacob’s relationship with Renesmee Cullen.

Condon’s indie project Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which was supposed to begin shooting shortly, has now been put on hold. Condon will likely return to the film, from Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy, after he concludes his Twilight work.


Eva Longoria-Parker: Nicolette Sheridan and Marc Cherry had an "incident" on set

Eva Longoria-Parker says she is in the dark about former Desperate Housewives costar Nicollette Sheridan's $20 million law suit against creator Marc Cherry.

But she says the two famously never got along and once had an altercation on the set of the hit ABC show.

"They did have a thing on set," she said Wednesday on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show. "I guess it was a couple years ago. It's so long ago, the actual incident, and I wasn't on set when it happened. Apparently, this incident had happened, and she felt it was wrong."

Although she tried to "get the dirt" on the incident, Parker, 35, told Seacrest "nobody's allowed to talk about it."

Pressed for more details, Parker replied: "Something happened on set regarding them doing a scene. She was doing a scene, and ... he was showing her how to do a scene. Honestly, I wish I knew [what happened]. During that time too, I didn't work with Nicollette's character."

In her lawsuit, Sheridan, 46, alleges that Cherry, 48, hit her in the face on the set and then fired her in retaliation for complaining about him. (Cherry has yet to comment; ABC Studios says Sheridan's claims are "without merit.")

Parker said she is "really confused by this whole thing."

She described Cherry as "funny and sweet and probably could not harm a fly. He's just so sweet." She later said, "Nicollette's a sweet girl, too."

She has yet to speak with her former costar, but she told Seacrest: "I would love to see her to find out if everything is okay. But it's a big lawsuit, it's a big deal. I love the show so much. I would hate for anything to really tarnish the reputation of the show. I really would like for all of it to go away."

Modern Family cast to appear on cooking reality show

TVGuide.com has an interview with  Top Chef Masters' newest judge Gail Simmons, where she talks about an upcoming celebrity challenge involving the Modern Family cast.

Season 2 premieres tonight at 11/10c on Bravo, though I think the Modern Family episode is going to be on at a later date.

TVGuide.com: Was a celeb challenge exceptionally fun for you?
Simmons: The one that stuck out for me for sure was working with the cast and crew of Modern Family. They're just the most lovable group. We had this extraordinary day with them ... But sadly, we shot this in the fall when the show just came out and I hadn't seen it yet. So when I came home from shooting, I was totally hooked on the show.

Robin Thicke and his actress wife Paula Patton welcomed their first child, Julian Fuego (LOL, Fuego), on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

"Mother, father and son are all doing well," says Thicke's rep.

The crooner had canceled his portion of Tuesday night’s show at the Staples Center for "personal reasons." But his tour mate, Alicia Keys, offered her congratulations from the stage.

In December, Thicke told Essence.com he was looking forward to "[t]eaching him how to respect a woman. Teaching him music. Getting to play him Biggie Smalls at some age ... That's the beauty of having a child."

High school sweethearts Thicke, 32, and Patton, 34, will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary in June.


I hope he teaches his baby his smooth dance moves...

Slash Is Team Coco; NBC Doesn't Want You To Know

Did Slash really wear a Team Coco pin on The Tonight Show last night? NBC doesn't want you to know, but it's true.

When Slash was booked to perform on last night's Tonight Show, NBC surely didn't think he would show up wearing a Team Coco pin. But, he did. Slash went on Leno's show to proudly and somewhat brazenly show where his loyalties lay in the Late Night Wars

As expected, Leno's crew worked around the problem and did all they could do make sure that Slash's pin didn't get much camera time. In fact, it only made this brief cameo in the performance.

Jimmy Fallon mocks Kate Gosselin

Jimmy Fallon spoofs Kate Gosselin's ill-received 'Paparazzi' performance on 'Dancing with the Stars'

BY Cristina Everett

Wednesday, April 7th 2010, 1:41 PM

Imitation may not always be the sincerest form of flattery – at least in Kate Gosselin's case.

The tabloid target mom got a dose of reality Tuesday night when "Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon took a jab at her less-than-stellar "Dancing with the Stars" performance this week.

"I was attacked by the paparazzi again this morning," Fallon somberly told his audience. "I'm pretty upset about it. I think my feelings can be best expressed in dance."

As the show's house band, The Roots, began playing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi," Fallon donned a long, blond ponytail and a red and black top, similar to what Gosselin wore on the dance competition program Monday night.

Fallon started his dance with an intense gaze and robotic movements that mimicked those of Gosselin's.

However this time around, his hilarious take on the reality star's performance garnered an outburst of cheers, whereas Gosselin's actual number was horribly panned by the "DWTS" judges and earned her a dismal score of 15 out of 30.

Sigur Ros' Jonsi Debuts Knockout Solo Tour


About halfway through his tour opener at Vancouver, BC's Vogue Theatre on Tuesday night, Jonsi reeled in that rafter-reaching voice of his to say thanks in his way: briefly, charmingly, Icelandic-ly.

"This is our first show," he said to the excited whoops of the audience. "So it is exciting for us also."
After years of singing beautiful, mournful gibberish and heady pop with Sigur Ros, the 35-year-old frontman has broken free with Go, his just-released solo effort.

The album is an energetic leap from his previous work -- it's Jon Thor Birgisson kicking through the gorgeous darkness of Sigur Ros and into the Jonsi-light of his nicknamed alter ego. So it's only fitting that the day of the album's release should be the same as the first day of the tour. Let's kick this darkness, already!

And kick they did. From the moment Jonsi and his band, a quartet of engaging multi-instrumentalists, rushed in, it was clear this was no Sigur Ros show. Yes, there were cello bows; and yes, there were a thousand keyboards; and yes, they were playing instruments you've never seen before or will again. But from the first, bell-clear notes of "Stars in Still Water" it was obvious we were seeing another, less crowded, corner of Birgisson's mind on display.

On a set that looked like the Museum of Natural History after a fire (trust me), a tight musical arc that fit the songs into one another like puzzle pieces, and gorgeous projections courtesy of London's 59 Productions, the show was less winsome rock and more serious Theatre. There were costumes, too: All but one band member wore a jacket trailing bright fabric strips that hung like rainbow tree moss.
But it wasn't all show. It was also tell.

Jonsi's incomparable soaring falsetto was the real draw. When he stepped out with only a guitar to begin "Stars," the audience hushed to his voice.

But when the whole band combined like a marvelous machine, as on the twinkling "Sinking Friendships" or thrashing, thunderous closer "Grow Till Tall," the Jonsi experience reaches its height. Percussionist Samuli Kosminen manages to alternatively scare and soothe with tools both expected (good old drums) and unusual (a rock, I think).

In between, "Tornado" hinted at both orchestra and film score, "Go Do" found a sunny, breakneck pop sprint, and "Around Us" was a hypnotic, trippy epic, complete with live vocal loops.

The pinnacle, however, came in the encore. Jonsi, in full Native American headdress, emerged from the side of the stage and put his plumage on full display. Then he smiled, and it was clear: Sigur Ros is a beautiful thing, but when he goes solo, Jonsi does something amazing -- he lets his freak flag fly. "I want to be a miracle," he sang on "Boy Lilikoi."

On this tour, he gets to be.

Tiki Barber leaves pregnant wife for 23 year old

A source tells the Huffington Post that Traci Lynn Johnson accompanied Barber to the Olympics in Vancouver where he introduced her as his "assistant."

According to our source, Johnson was "very quiet, very meek, and walked around with a backpack that made her look like she was 17!"

Is a 23-year-old former NBC intern behind Tiki Barber's split from his wife Ginny?

The young and beautiful Traci Lynn Johnson was spotted sitting next to the former New York Giants running back at a screening of a documentary on Senegal that he hosted for the Travel Channel recently.

M.I.A. interview

M.I.A. talks about the industry right now, Lady Gaga, Kesha and the new musical underground

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“Sorrrrry,” M.I.A.’s been busy - very busy. So busy our interview happens 44 hours later than was originally scheduled. Maya Arulpragasam has valid reasons for living up to her stage name, though, she’s only just back in London after being marooned in the US for 18 months; “banned”, she says, from leaving. Maya is seen by the government of her native Sri Lanka as a dissident, publicly accusing them of “genocide” for their part in a 26-year civil war that ended last May. She claims they’ve been “pulling the strings” recently to make life difficult: disappearing visa applications and hacking into her Twitter and email accounts, “wishing all kinds of crazy illness on my baby and stuff like that”.

“People used to come and park outside my house in LA,” she says. “I felt so powerless”. Add in a mother alone and made sick by similar visa bullshit this side of the Atlantic, and it’d be churlish of NME to rue a few hours spent twiddling thumbs. It hasn’t been all espionage and irritation, though - there was the arrival of that aforementioned baby, son Ikhyd is a year old now - and a new album too. Due out this summer, the follow-up to 2007’s Kala sees M.I.A. hook-up with dub-step hoodlum Rusko and rekindle her creative relationship with Wes Pentz, aka ex-boyfriend Diplo, for the first time since ‘Paper Planes’ (“it’s OK now, but was awkward at first,” admits Maya, now engaged to Ikhyd’s father Benjamin Bronfman).

Last year also delivered an Oscar nomination for her music’s appearance in Slumdog Millionaire, while she’s recently signed Sleigh Bells and Blaqstarr to her own label, NEET. She also scooped a lot on Time magazine’s list of the ‘World’s 100 Most Influential People’, and this true star looks like she will continue to set the agenda into the next decade. We can’t wait to see what M.I.A. has in store for us…

Exclusive: Lil Wayne's Prison Job: On "Suicide Watch"

How is Lil Wayne keeping busy behind bars?

"Wayne has a job -- they got him on suicide watch for other prisoners," his ex, BET reality star Antonia "Toya" Johnson, told Us' Ian Drew during an office visit Tuesday. "He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don't kill themselves. He likes the job even though they don't pay him much."

Among the general population of inmates at New York's Rikers Island, the rapper (real name: Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) -- who is serving a yearlong jail sentence for gun possession -- "is doing OK," added Johnson, who has a 11-year-old daughter with Wayne. "He is getting along with everybody."

Luckily, she told Us, "He didn't have to cut his long hair!"


Can you imagine being on suicide watch and having him watch over you? He'd probably ramble on about the meaning of love and life, then make up little raps to make you feel better. I'd cheer up ASAP.

Memorial for Proof (eminem's late hype man/best friend)

Proof Day, in honor of late D12 rapper, to be held at Detroit Pub and Woodlawn Cemetery
By Jessica Nunez | MLive.com
April 07, 2010, 1:33PM

The Detroit hip-hop community will hold a tribute to the late rapper Proof on April 10 and 11.
The Detroit hip-hop community has named April 10 and 11 "Proof Day" in honor of the late D12 rapper DeShaun Dupree Holton, known in the music world as Proof.

Proof was 32-years-old when he was killed in 2006 during a shooting at the CCC Club at 8 Mile and Gratiot in Detroit.

Proof was instrumental in forming D12, which was conceived in 1990 as a rap collective that included Detroit's most talented MCs such as Eminem, Bizarre, Eye-Kyu, Kuniva, Denaun Porter and Bugz.

His death is still controversial.

The most accepted version of the story (and the version accepted by the legal system) is that Proof was fatally shot by CCC bouncer Mario Etheridge after Proof shot U.S. Army veteran Keith Bender, Jr., who died a week later.

Etheridge served six months in jail and was charged a $2,000 fine for carrying a concealed weapon and firing inside the club, but was found to have been acting in lawful defense of another man when he shot Proof.

The flip side of the story, as explained by witness Reginald Moorer (a.k.a. Mudd) in XXL magazine, is that there were so many shots fired that night that it was hard to tell exactly who shot who and for what reason.

According to Detroit hip-hop artist and activist Khary WAE Frazier, quoted in a Michigan Citizen article, the day will be a chance for people to "rally with (Proof's) mother, recognize Proof and nonviolence throughout the city of Detroit."

The tribute will take place April 10 at the Detroit Pub at 9 p.m. and Woff Pac, Purple Gang and Super MC will perform.

On April 11, the fourth anniversary of Proof's death, a cemetery vigil will be held at the Woodlawn Cemetery from 4 to 6 p.m.

Rev. David Bullock of Highland Park NAACP will speak at the cemetery vigil.

Big Boi's new single

I know it may seem like we’ve been hearing a lot from Big Boi lately, but the truth is the only non-guest work we’ve heard from the Outkast alum in the last six months was the funkdafied Fo Yo Sorrows. Well, thanks to a one-off deal with Def Jam Big’s fantastically named Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty album is back on track, and that means we should be hearing more new music like Shutterbug soon. Featuring some of the best Scott Storch production we’ve heard in a minute – talk about covering a lot of sonic ground – Shutterbug is Big Boi at his eclectically rhyming best, quickly alternating between old school Soul II Soul references (“back to life, back to reality…”) and street laced boasts. Only one man could pull of a lyrical performance like that, and his name is Sir Luscious Left Foot. If the rest of The Son of Chico Dusty sounds this fresh and clean, we might be looking at a new school classic on May 4.


this is my jam right now.

11th album for Uhm, Jung Hwa

Uhm Jung Hwa will be making her comeback to the big screen with the movie Best Seller and also to the k-pop scene with an 11th album. 

When revealing that Uhm Jung Hwa would be featured in the April issue of Cosmopolitan, she also confirmed rumors of her returning with a new album as she revealed that she is currently busy preparing for her comeback.

The veteran singer has released 10 albums now and commented on her upcoming one saying, “I will be preparing the 11th album with more passion. An artist with no confidence or passion cannot hope to succeed on stage.

Similar with acting, if you don’t have total mind control of the situation during a scene, you won’t even be able to convey the meaning of a single line.”

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Uhm Jung Hwa’s upcoming projects. Her last drama The Man Who Can’t Marry and album were quite the hits in their own respective fields so whatever she’s got in store for us is bound to be great.

Kate Nash talks about Christina Aguilera working with Le Tigre

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

OK, when I heard Christina had hooked up with someone out of Le Tigre, I was surprised. But I don’t think that pop and underground can’t cross over. I recently met up with JD Samson of Le Tigre in New York - we went for dinner, and she was telling me about Christina’s album. Apparently, she really liked Le Tigre’s track ‘Deceptacon’, got her label to get in touch and JD agreed to meet with her. They quickly agreed to do a bit of song writing with her. JD told me that Christina is officially ‘nice’.

I love Le Tigre, and if you listen to their music, there is a lot of pop in there, although it’s quite raw and mixed with punk. But there’s definitely a pop sensibility within their songs. Also, JD’s done a lot of really upbeat dance-sounding stuff with her band MEN, who are really fun. They’re quite clubby and dancey. Obviously, Christina’s a massive superstar from a different world, but it’ll be interesting to hear the results.

As for it being a feminist betrayal for Le Tigre to be working with a sexualised popstar like Christina… well, first of all, I did like Christina’s ‘Dirrty’ when it first came out, I can’t deny it. But a lot of Christina’s songs are about being yourself and being accepted, and that kind of ties into what Le Tigre would say as well. I don’t think that JD would work with someone that she thought wasn’t cool.

Parents TV Council upset that "Glee" is considered "family friendly"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A parental advocacy group up is in arms over a recent Los Angeles Times article that argued that American television has reverted back to more family-friendly programming, citing hit shows such as “Cougar Town” and “Two and Half Men” as programs that could entice entire families to gather around the couch together once again.

While the article acknowledged that the shows deal with mature subject matters and that the term “family friendly” is far more limber than it was years ago, the Parents Television Council (PTC) begs to differ, saying it believes the LA Times article reflects that Hollywood has lost sense of what is and isn’t appropriate viewing for young audiences.

Taiwan's Susan Boyle

Chubby underdog blows judges away as he belts out Whitney Houston... and becomes YouTube hit

Susan Boyle needs to look out - there's another YouTube singing sensation shooting up the popularity charts.

Lin Yu Chun is short, fat, has a bowl-cut hairstyle and wears a red bow tie, but the Taiwanese youngster sings exactly like Whitney Houston. Which explains why a clip from the karaoke TV show Super Star Avenue has become a massive hit on YouTube and Twitter.

His pitch-perfect rendition of the Whitney Houston/Dolly Parton mega-hit I Will Always Love You blew a panel of judges away. The amazing performance recalled the way Susan Boyle surprised Britain's Got Talent judges with her version of I Dreamed A Dream.

The clip of her stunning Simon Cowell and Co. with the song from Les Miserables has now clocked up 90m hits on YouTube alone. Her subsequent album has gone on to sell millions worldwide and last week netted her a £4m royalties cheque to coincide with her 49th birthday. But now it seems Lin is ready to take her crown as the year's most unlikely music star and he is the bookies' favourite to win the talent contest.

The grand prize on Super Star Avenue is almost as jaw-dropping as Lin's performance - the chance to release an album, as well as $1million (£650,000).

After a four-year absence, Christina Aguilera is being welcomed back to radio with open arms. The singer's new single, "Not Myself Tonight," is the No. 1 most added song at mainstream top 40 and rhythm radio this week. According to Nielsen BDS, the song garnered 73 adds at top 40 (99 over two weeks) and 19 adds at rhythmic radio. Receiving 886 plays over six days at top 40 radio, the song is poised to debut high next week on the Mainstream Top 40 chart.

Produced by Polow da Don (Keri Hilson, Usher, Fergie), the tribal house-inspired track is the first single from Aguilera's forthcoming new album, "Bionic" (RCA, June 8). The single will become available at iTunes and all other digital providers on April 13. A video is being shot at the end of this week.

In addition to Polow da Don, the album features the Grammy Award-winning singer collaborating with Sia, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Le Tigre, Hill & Switch and Ladytron. She also reunites with songwriter Linda Perry, who contributes a ballad titled "Lift Me Up." Perry also wrote the singles "Hurt" and "Candyman" from Aguilera's last studio album, 2006's "Back to Basics," and her 2002 hit "Beautiful." To date, "Back to Basics" has sold 1.7 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Aguilera's 2008 greatest hits set, "Keeps Getting Better: A Decade of Hits," has sold 338,000.

"['Bionic'] was put together to represent those different parts of myself," writes Aguilera in a special message to fans on her Web site. "I chose to collaborate with a variety of artists and producers across I was able to explore and create a fresh, sexy feel using both electronic and organic elements." The singer recently completed her first film role in "Burlesque," which co-stars Cher. The movie is due to premiere in fall 2010.

Whether they're raising their adopted baby girl, dodging homophobic quips from their fraternity brothers or teaching the "Single Ladies" dance to the football team after glee club, it seems gay characters are becoming a vital part of prime time TV.

With characters like "Modern Family's" Mitchell and Cameron, Calvin from "Greek" and Kurt from "Glee," the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) characters on scripted programs has just about doubled since 2005, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation.

Kiely Williams defends "Spectacular" song/music video.

Keily Williams has added this message in the description for new new music video, after receiving hate comments on her official Youtube page.

"ATTENTION: I am an actor and performer. I have been so since my first role in a television pilot at five years old. I played a character when I was a Cheetah Girl. I am playing a character in the music video for the song Spectacular, as I did in the Cheetah Girl movies. Young women across the country get intoxicated and have unprotected sex. That's a fact. I recorded the song to bring attention to this frighteningly prevalent activity. It is absurd to infer or suggest that I am condoning this behavior.

Are Lady Gaga and Beyonce advocating murder with the Telephone video? Of, course not. Was Rihanna encouraging suicide with Russian Roulette? No. Was Madonna suggesting that young unmarried girls get pregnant with Papa Dont Preach? I dont think so. Is Academy Award winner Monique a proponent of incest because of her portrayal of Mary in the movie Precious. Clearly, the answer is no.

I wrote Spectacular and made the video to bring attention to a serious womens health and safety issue. Please dont shoot the messenger."

South Park tackles Facebook, but in a TRON inspired way!

Tonights South Park episode is going to be awesome heaven for those who are following the new Tron film!  As taken from ComedyCentral.co.uk:

Season 14 of South Park has been spot on hitting the funny bone since it returned three weeks ago and we’ve got the heads up on this week’s brand new episode.

All we know about this week’s episode so far is that when Kyle begs Stan to “friend” him, Stan gets sucked into Facebook.  And by the looks of it, quite literally!

We’ve only seen a couple of images but this week’s episode looks like a corker judging by this frankly awesome picture of Stan in full-on Tron regalia.

You honestly gotta love Trey and Matt for putting cameos of awesome 80's films in their show.  The last craziest one I saw was in the episode with the Dog Whisperer, one of the nannies that Cartman had was 'Nanny Skesis' (from the Dark Crystal).  It truly made me smile.  I'm pretty sure they're all excited for the Tron film, too.

Hollywood is filled with beautiful actresses, but not every good role calls for a stunning woman. So what is a Hollywood actress to do? Well, she plays 'ugly.'

Sometimes when an actress tries to go "plain" it can be annoying--are we really supposed to believe that because a pretty woman dyes her hair brown and wears glasses she is instantly undesirable? However, sometimes actresses can pull off the ugliness and make the audience look beyond their dowdy transformation and focus on their talent.

Cameron Frye Alan Ruck to star in CW show "The Damn Thorpes".

With downtown Cloverdale standing in as Big Whiskey, Wyoming last week, actor Alan Ruck (centre) works during the third and final day of shooting of The Damn Thorpes, a TV pilot for Warner Brothers Studio's SW network.

Ruck got his big break in the 80s when he played Ferris Bueller's hypochondriac best friend in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He's since been in myriad movies and TV shows in supporting and lead roles and was on the sitcom Spin City from 1996 to 2002.

Bishop Lamont feat. John Mayer – Gone

Bishop Lamont knows Drama. But that’s a good thing when it’s Drama from Rob Dyrdek’s hit MTV show “Fantasy Factory.”

“Drama did it — he’s a mega-producer who doesn’t get enough credit for his talent,” Bishop says as he listens to “Gone,” a new song featuring John Mayer that he cut on a recent stop by the Fantasy Factory. “E. Sanchez hooked it up and I just ran with it. I did it for the music, I just felt it, related to it and identified with what John was singing about. And, straight-up, John may have got controversial in a magazine interview but the dude’s no racist … he was just bein’ crazy, damn, take a joke.”

In it, Niitsuma says that a we could be hearing about a new versus game from Capcom this year.

"I would love to do more versus series, more types of games like Marvel Vs. Capcom 2," Niitsuma said. "There are all of these possibilities working with other companies, seeing what we could do with them. There are so many game companies I'd love to work with.

"If sales are really good (for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars) then you can see an announcement within this year," he said.

Also, there's Capcom's annual big news event happening next week in Hawaii. They've got to have something to knock our socks off with right?

In Rwanda, it’s as if genocide is still going on

‘When are we going to Rwanda?” my 13-year-old daughter kept asking. She wanted to go there as soon as I was asked to visit the country to show solidarity with its people. She wasn’t asking in a naive, childish way; she knew that it was a serious thing, marking the anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. Initially, the scheduling wasn’t working out, but Hannah kept on reminding me.

And so, almost a year later — thanks to her and the Aegis Trust — I’m standing in the Kigali Genocide Memorial, trying to get my head around what happened in 1994, what that means for Rwanda today and what, if anything, it might mean for the rest of us.

North Korea Leader Sets World Fashion Trend With Zipped-Up Tunic and Matching Trousers

The trademark suit sported by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il is now in fashion worldwide thanks to his greatness, Pyongyang's official website said Wednesday.

Uriminzokkiri, quoting an article in communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun, said the modest-looking suits have gripped people's imagination and become a global vogue.

"The reason is that the august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people's mind in the world," it said.

The suits consist of an overall-style zipped-up tunic and matching trousers, usually in khaki or blueish-grey.

'Twin Peaks' 20 Years Later: How the Show Changed Television

 My girlfriend woke up screaming last year. 

I could vaguely hear cries of "No!" and "Get Away!" through my sleep before she arose panicked and disheveled, sweat beads glistening off her forehead. We had just watched an episode of David Lynch's cult classic 'Twin Peaks,' and she'd had a nightmare that she was brushing her teeth, looked up into the mirror and saw the image of BOB, the show's psychotic murderer, maniacally rushing up on her.
Twenty years after the influential cult television show began, David Lynch's sci-fi, absurdist murder-mystery soap opera continues to scare and befuddle legions of viewers. Without it, there would be no 'Lost', 'The X-Files' or any of the countless serials habitually labeled "quirky" and/or "weird" since the show's debut on April 8, 1990.

Kendra Talks Handpicking Hef's Lays (As in Chips!)

Sounds like Hugh Hefner likes things a certain way.

"He doesn't like broken chips," Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett said, dishing to Jay Leno Wednesday about her former beau's need for an unblemished snacking experience.

"The chefs would go through each bag of Lays and handpick each chip."

"Why didn't he just get Pringles?" wondered fellow guest David Duchovny, who supplied more than one punchline during Kendra's appearance.

"The Playboy Mansion was like Disneyland," the E! star recalled, prompting Duchovny—wink-wink—to put his hands over his face in "why me?!" fashion.

Kendra might not have caught the meaning of that exchange, but she had more wholesome things on her mind.

Talking about hubby Hank Baskett, who was sitting in the audience, she said that when they first met at a Playboy golf scramble, he was the only guy who didn't ask for her number.

So, she went up to him to ask, "Hey, aren't you going to get my number?"

"He was so shy and so innocent, and I needed him," she said.

That is so sweet.


Confirmed: Harrison Ford Joins Favreau's 'Cowboys & Aliens'

I think it's safe to say that many of us who worshiped Harrison Ford in the 1980s and 1990s have been a little disappointed with his output in recent years. The man of Crossing Over and Extraordinary Measures isn't really the man you loved for two decades solid, is it? (We aren't going to talk about that Crystal Skull. Nope. Pretend it didn't happen.) But there's a very, very good chance the fun Ford might be back again, because he's just signed on to star alongside Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in Cowboys & Aliens.

Set in Arizona in the 1800s, Cowboys & Aliens begins when a battle between Apaches and cowboys is interrupted by the arrival of an alien craft whose commander wants to enslave mankind, and the two warring factions must join forces to defeat the invaders. Latino Review first ran the casting scoop a few days ago, and director Jon Favreau confirmed it on Twitter today. As Craig will be playing the lead cowboy, Zeke Jackson, it's not clear who Ford will be playing. I'm guessing it's a cowboy though, and not an alien or an Apache.

This is really exciting news. Cowboys & Aliens sounds like a fun concept, and it keeps attracting big names (Robert Downey Jr. was onboard before Sherlock Holmes 2 took him away), which gives me a lot of hope that it isn't total camp. (Don't point out that Wild Wild West had big names, too. I'm looking on the bright side!) I suppose you could worry that two sardonic leads could cause everyone (including those two cool customers) to overcompensate on zaniness, but Favreau seems to be able to rein in manic temptations. Besides, it's a sci-fi western. We haven't had one of those in ages (Serenity aside). And it's going to star Craig and Ford. I'm looking forward to it. You should too.
