Britney could be feminism's newest heroine

Britney Spears blazing a trail for feminism? Who would have though it? And yet, last week, the pop princess, formerly known as popular culture's biggest casualty, forged a new identity for herself -- that of brave pioneer, helping to tear down the unrealistic goals of physical perfection modern women aspire to.

It seems unlikely that the girl who brought us Hit Me Baby One More Time, serving up seduction in a schoolgirl skirt, should have grown up into a lady who now seeks to debunk the myth and the marketing around current conceptions of beauty. And yet that is exactly what she's done. She's gone where no star of her level of celebrity has gone before. She shot a recent ad campaign for Candie clothing, in which she appeared in a pink swimsuit and high-heeled shoes. But instead of simply signing off on the glossed-up, slimmed-down retouched version of the pictures, as would be standard practice, she's also released the same shots before any computer wizardry took place. Sans airbrushing, sans retouching. Just Britney, raw and unpolished.

jon gosselin continues to be gross, gets a faux hawk

Wow, Jon Gosselin never ceases to amaze me. His ‘ick’ factor is just so intense with his new faux hawk it’s almost frightening! Jon was walking around running errands on Apr. 5 in Reading, PA sporting this new, horrible hair. Or, should I say, lack of hair. Why, Jon, why? Are you trying to compete with your ex-wife Kate Gosselin’s infamous hairstyle? This wannabe faux hawk look just accentuates your thinning hair, not to mention your creepiness. Come on, Jon, grow up and get a ‘do that isn’t totally inappropriate! source

Delicious Woman and Her Baby on Us



How cute is this little flowerbud that goes by the name Violet?
On February 26th, Christina Milian and husband, The Dream, welcomed their first bundle of joy, daughter Violet.
This week, the two debuted their gorgeous baby on the cover of US Weekly magazine.

The happy mother tells the magazine that her daughter is a lot like her, saying that Violet “laughs a lot.” There's nothing more heart melting than a happy baby that laughs a lot.

When Christina was pregnant, I remember she gained a lot of weight but now she says she lost 27 of the 45 pounds she gained. She reveals that she’s eating a lot of salads and fruits to help her lose all that weight and stay healthy.

Christina is finding it hard to keep up with Violet because she’s hungry all the time, but still she plans on breastfeeding her for a whole year! Kudos!

I think the little Violet looks so much like her mom even at such a young age!

You Say Party! We Say Die! drummer dies after on-stage collapse

You Say Party! We Say Die! 'devastated' by sudden death of bandmate Devon Clifford

Devon Clifford

By Marsha Lederman

Vancouver — Devon Clifford, the drummer for the B.C. band You Say Party! We Say Die!, has died after collapsing during a show in Vancouver on Friday night.

“It is with absolute sadness to report that our dear friend Devon Clifford passed away just hours ago in a Vancouver hospital surrounded by his family and friends,” the band’s publicist, Darryl Weeks, said in a statement Sunday morning. “He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him.”

The band was performing at an all-ages show Friday at the Rickshaw Theatre, in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, when Clifford collapsed on stage. He was rushed to hospital.
The band send out messages on Twitter after his collapse: “There aren’t a lot of words right now. Let the doctors do their job.” And then: “We are devastated and trying to keep hope. He needs a miracle. Thank you.”

Clifford, who was born in 1979, grew up in Abbotsford, B.C., where the new-wave dance-punk band formed in 2003. He lived in Vancouver and worked for the Portland Hotel Society, which provides sustainable housing to people in the Downtown Eastside. He was described in a recent Globe interview with the band as being a "huge hockey fan" who has known fellow bandmate guitarist Derek Adam since they were babies.

The band had recently returned home after touring the U.S. and Western Canada in support of their most recent CD, XXXX.

They were scheduled to begin a tour of Europe later this month.

James Cameron's ridiculously maddening quote of the day

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Quote comes from this article, talking about his activism and involvement with indigenous peoples in Brazil:
"I felt like I was 130 years back in time watching what the Lakota Sioux might have been saying at a point when they were being pushed and they were being killed and they were being asked to displace and they were being given some form of compensation," he said. "This was a driving force for me in the writing of Avatar– I couldn't help but think that if they [the Lakota Sioux] had had a time-window and they could see the future… and they could see their kids committing suicide at the highest suicide rates in the nation… because they were hopeless and they were a dead-end society – which is what is happening now – they would have fought a lot harder."
Wow, James Cameron. Wow. So, the contemporary Lakota are "hopeless" and a "dead-end society"? and the generations of fighting against colonialism and continued oppression weren't and aren't fighting hard enough? Talk about ignorance. He makes it seem like the Lakota just rolled over and let their land be taken away. Couldn't be further from the truth.

Melissa and Tammy Etheridge have ended their nearly nine-year relationship, but there’s no drama behind the split – only sadness, a friend of the former couple tells PEOPLE.

"There’s no third party involved. They just drifted apart over time," says the friend. "There’s no animosity whatsoever – they are on friendly terms. "

Melissa, 48, and Tammy, 35, separated four or five months ago, says the pal, but continue to put their kids first.

"They’re co-parenting their twins [Miller and Johnnie Rose, 3],” says the friend. "They are living apart but share custody of the kids. "

Melissa will continue to co-parent her kids when she hits the road to promote her 10th studio album, Fearless Love, due to be released April 27.

T.I. Compares New Album to Tupac's "All Eyez On Me"



“This is the most significant return from incarceration that the game has had since then.”


With T.I. appearing to be in top form since his release from prison, the rapper is already making bold statements in relation to his upcoming album, King Uncaged.

Referencing his time behind bars, T.I.P. is comparing his next project to All Eyez On Me and how Tupac Shakur was after he was released from prison.

Making his face more public, the rapper spoke with Rolling Stone on his release and wanting to deliver work comparable to 2Pac.

“Just given the enormous success of that project, everyone's expecting the same results. I just want to meet the expectations, if not surpass them.”

He also spoke on what type of sound to expect from King Uncaged.

“Some songs talk about my time in prison — how I was affected by that, the way I've grown from that, things I see now that I may have not seen then.

Sometimes I talk about love, some songs I talk about life, some songs I talk about me being the shit on every level.”

With the King making his official mainstream return in August, the bar had been set high by T.I. and time away can only ensure that he can deliver on his words.

'Arrested Development' movie not dead yet, says Jason Bateman

Fans of the beloved late television series "Arrested Development" let out a collective shriek last week when one of the former show's stars, David Cross, said in an interview that a rumored movie based on the show is "just not going to happen."

"I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen," Cross told TVSquad.com.

Not so fast, says Jason Bateman, who starred in the program as a widower at the center of an eccentric family.

"David says that it's dead, but it's not dead at all," Bateman said in an interview Friday while promoting "The Switch," a romantic comedy out in August in which he costars with Jennifer Aniston. "[Show creator] Mitch Hurwitz is busy shooting a new pilot with Will Arnett, and perhaps when they're done shooting and editing and he's delivered that, perhaps he'll jump into writing the script. Once the script is done, it goes to the studio and they decide if it's a script they want to make, and the actors will decide if they want to be in it."

Which is all to say?

"It's a long process. But it could happen and it's still in everybody's plans for it to happen."

As for Cross' remarks, Bateman thinks his former costar's words may have been blown out of proportion.

"I think he was simply saying, 'Who knows?' He wasn't saying anything definitive, but a lot of people with blogs and whatnot, in the interest of making a splash headline, stretched things a bit."

Deathly Hallows trailer news - Shaking and crying!

SHAKING AND CRYING OMAGAWD

Magic Box Music, the company responsible for the music on dozens of major film trailers including most of the previous Harry Potter’s, updated their official website recently and revealed they are hard at work on the first official trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

"Once again Magicbox is hard at work on the latest Trailer for the final chapters of the Harry Potter Franchise. The Deathly Hallows will consist of two full length feature films released a year apart. Voldemort’s power is growing stronger. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore’s work and find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord. But little hope remains for them, so everything they do must go as planned."

So when can we expect to see this trailer? Hopefully as soon as it is completed which could be later this month, although Warner Bros. may want to be tactical and release it alongside one of their upcoming films. They have The Losers out on April 23rd (probably too soon), A Nightmare on Elm Street on April 30th (wrong audience), Sex and the City 2 on May 27th, Jonah Hex on June 18th and Inception out July 16th. I suppose they could attached it to Iron Man 2 on May 7th.

Whatever plans Warner Bros. have for the trailer, at least we know it will be released soon.

On Being A Mainstream Pop Star In A Lady Gaga World

An article where Jezebel is sane for once in its existence

There was a moment during last night's Saturday Night Live when my disdain for Ke$ha morphed into a kind of distanced pity, and that moment, I believe, was the exact moment that Ke$ha herself was questioning her career's direction.

The moment occurs at about 40 seconds in; after singing an intro to her hit, "TiK ToK," Ke$ha readies herself in front of the microphone and dramatically reveals her American flag cape in a way that plays as if she's expecting a massive response from the audience. The response she received, however, was absolute silence, and you can tell that she's thrown off by the quick glance she throws to someone off stage. It's a look of fear and annoyance, a look that says "Oh shit" and "I told you so." And, perhaps most importantly, it's a look coming from someone who doesn't seem to buy the shit they're selling.

Jake T. Austin Writing A Script In The Vein Of 'Stand By Me' -- 'Kings Of Suburbia'



Jake T. Austin is a busy guy. Not only is he making films and working on the popular Disney show “Wizards of Waverly Place,” but he’s developing a passion project of his own. While promoting his latest feature, “The Perfect Game,” Austin took some time to discuss his future plans, which includes a "Stand By Me"-inspired story called "Kings of Suburbia."

"I’m writing a film [that is] kind of like ‘Stand By Me,'" he said, referring to the 1986 buddy drama starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O’Connell, which was itself adapted from a Stephen King novella. “It is my favorite movie. [My own project is] based on a true story about my cousin... growing up in sort of a rough neighborhood in Florida.”

There’s no Ray Brower -- the corpse the kids in the older movie discover -- in Austin’s cousin’s life, but the "Waverly Place" actor elaborated: "I threw in some elements and I took some elements from my life and took some elements from his life and sort of combined them and my overall perspective of growing up, even though I’m not finished yet." There’s also still a vital component to be worked out before the story moves beyond the script phase. “We’re in the process of getting financing for it now,” Austin said.

Once the cash flow issue is settled, it should be smooth sailing. Not only does he have a dream director in mind, but he’s got a large pool of actor pals to choose from. “I’m thinking about having Mr. [William] Dear direct it.” Dear directed Austin in "Perfect Game," though the actor admitted that he hasn’t discussed the possibility with him yet. “I love working with him and I don’t see why [he wouldn't do it],” Austin said.

As for casting, Austin isn’t opposed to starring in the film himself. “That’s the great thing of being a writer, you’re able to do whatever you want.” However, there will surely be more than one role that needs filling. “I’ll definitely put my friends who are actors in them, the people I think can do the best in the role. I’ve written characters with specific people in mind to have.”

Blur's "Fool's Day" Surfaces on the Interwebz



Yesterday was Record Store Day, and 1,000 lucky blokes picked up this 7″, the first new Blur song in (appropriately enough) seven years. It was recorded in London weeks ago. Their last single was Think Tank’s “Battery In Your Leg.”

As we mentioned last week, Damon Albarn told The Sun, ”We want independent record stores to continue — they’re an important part of our musical culture.” True. None of the exclusive vinyl made its way to the states, which means we have to enjoy it via teh Internets, much like the Britpop heroes’ 2009 reunion tour. The band knows this, though, which is why they’ve made MP3 and WAV available for the price of an e-mail address at http://www.blur.co.uk/. Or stream it below (with lyrics)…

Andrew VanWyngarden has somehow gotten even more insanely attractive since when the first album came out. Did anyone else pick up the Siberian Breaks 12" for Record Store Day? Minus the sticker of the surfing cat, that might be the only aesthetically appealing thing related to this album.
