4th best member of N Sync is releasing a single

Jesus Christ, what do I have to do to get JC to release material. No reason that the most talented member is the one who isn't recording an album. Also, anyone follow Lance on twitter? So sad at the mean things people were saying to him after he spoke out against the Newsweek article about gay actors in straight roles. Loved how he handled it with class.


Beyowulf Steals and Lies ...... again!

Call Jim Carey because he may have competition if he ever wants to make "Liar Liar 2." It looks like Beyonce is having a bit of a hard time telling the truth.

Ms. Jay-Z has been called out by two different R&B ladies for not writing songs she claims are hers. According to Rap-Up magazine, Chrisette Michele revealed that Beyonce's hit single "Ego" was originally meant for her own album "Epiphany" but she decided to hand it over to the Queen B. And here is the shady part: The track is credited to producer Elvis Williams, Beyonce Knowles and Harold Lilly ... not vocal Goddess Chrisette.

Tom Cruise Finally Outed!


Most people know very little about Scientology aside from the fact that Tom Cruise, John Travolta and other celebrities are a part of it, and that it's had its fair share of controversy over the years. A new book is looking to pull back the curtain on the mysterious religion founded by L. Ron Hubbard, and the author certainly knows her stuff. Amy Scobee is a former Scientologist who was in the church for more than two decades, and worked in the all-important Celebrity Centers portion of the organization. In her just-released book, 'Scientology: Abuse at the Top,' Scobee details all of the troubling things she saw that made her flee what she once called her trusted religion, but now refers to as a "dangerous cult." Scobee spoke exclusively to PopEater over e-mail about her shocking book, her time with Tom Cruise and other Scientology bigwigs, and the (her words) brainwashing, systematic violence and slave labor camps she saw during her 27 years there. Her terrifying claims ...

Rusko, who recently released his debut album O.M.G. for Diplo’s Mad Decent label, revealed in an interview with LA Weekly (he now lives in LA, presumably in a massive house) he’s been approached by Britney’s people to work on her new record.

In Rusko’s words, “they approach me because they want me to do what I do. They don’t want me to make a cheesy pop record. I just want to be known for my beats. It’s simple. What you see is what you get. Bang! The music.”

Bringer of bad news

With networks continuously announcing their pilot pickups for next season, NBC has PASSED on "Rex is Not Your Lawyer"; Tennant finds other work

NBC's legal drama pilot Garza, starring Jimmy Smits and produced by Conan O’Brien’s production company, is set to complete its dream "dark horse" run with a series pickup tomorrow. The network is expected to officially announce the pickups of Garza and another new legal drama, David E. Kelley's Kindreds, which is being renamed. With Kindreds slated for midseason, Garza might launch in the fall. And with both shows picked up, NBC's third legal drama pilot, Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, is not going forward. The Cape still has a good shot at a pickup. Garza's pilot will be overhauled, with new senior-level producer(s) brought in to work with creator John Eisendrath. The pilot directed by Terry George will be reshot. I hear George had to cope with the death of his mothers only days before having to start work on the pilot. What remains intact is Smits in the lead, which proved to be the project's strongest weapon. Smits tested really well and was looking to front his own series as opposed to joining another one, like Law & Order: LA, which NBC seriously considered offering him.

Xtina: ‘I’m obviously relevant enough to you for you to care"

brandy & ray-j's brother speaks out

Brandy and Ray J's VH1 reality series 'A Family Business' has attracted the attention of Atlanta rapper Danyelle "C-Dove" Brown, who says that he is the estranged son of the siblings' father William Norwood.

Brown claims that he has made several attempts to reach out to the Norwood family and connect with his biological father, but has failed to receive a response. The aspiring ATL rapper recently created a YouTube web series titled 'Family Unfinished Business,' challenging Willie Norwood to take a paternity test and move forward with their relationship. "I decided to come out because I was tired of getting slapped in the face, seeing my father, seeing my bother and sister, wanting to have a relationship with them," Brown says in one video installment. "It's time for closure."

The father of three explained that after watching 'A Family Business' he was disappointed to see rapper Snoop Dogg introduced as a "brother figure" on the show, while he has not been given that chance. "What I'm doing is standing up for a lot of people out there who don't have a father," Brown said. "It's still people 40-years-old looking for their father so can't nobody blame me for what I'm doing."

TMZ - Sandra Bullock & Son Photographed on March 9 - And Jesse Was There

Sandra Bullock's Baby Shoot -- Jesse Was There!

Originally posted May 14th 2010 1:00 AM PDT by TMZ

TMZ has learned Jesse James was right by Sandra Bullock's side when she posed with her baby boy for that People photoshoot.

Sources tell TMZ Jesse was not only present ... he was "incredible with both Sandra and Louis" -- and created a "healthy, loving and positive atmosphere."

Now get a load of the timeline.  We're told the photos were taken March 9 -- two days after the Oscars  ... and just a few days before the scandal broke.

So Sandra was apparently oblivious to Jesse's alleged affairs when the pics were snapped. 

Alas, we've figured out what was really going on when a photographer was snapped carrying baby clothes into Sandra's home on March 9.

Now, the million dollar question -- are there photos of Jesse and little Louis Bardo floating around?

Stay tuned...

This is the Russell Crowe that I love

Russell Crowe cuts BBC interview short over suggestion his accent in Robin Hood sounds Irish

Russell Crowe swore and stormed out of a BBC interview after he was accused of making Robin Hood sound Irish in his latest film.

The New Zealander was questioned about the accent on Radio 4 by the interviewer Mark Lawson.

Crowe, 46, to suggestions that there were hints of Irish in his portrayal of the Nottingham legend in the movie which was released on Wednesday.

The star of Gladiator said: "You've got dead ears, mate – seriously dead ears if you think there's an Irish accent.
Lawson, the arts critic, then asked Crowe if the accent was meant to be northern.

Crowe replied: "No I was going for an Italian ... missed it? F--- me."

The Beautiful Mind actor then walked out of the interview for Front Row after Lawson asked whether it was true that he wanted to say the famous line in Gladiator: "I'll take my revenge in this life or the next."

Crowe can then be heard muttering, "I don't get the Irish thing by the way. I don't get it at all."

The actor has been criticised for the accent he has given Robin Hood in the film of the same name.
Crowe has reportedly claimed in some interviews that he was seeking a Yorkshire accent because several academics believe the outlaw was from there, and not Nottingham.


Audio of said interview is at the source.

Toni Collette reteams with 'Muriel's Wedding' director for more Aussie insanity

Toni Collette is reuniting with her Muriel’s Wedding director P.J. Hogan for the film Mental. Hogan, who wrote the script, tells Variety: “Like Muriel’s Wedding, Mental is a comedy, but a comedy based on reality, laced with pain and brimming with flawed but lovable characters. Shaz [the central character, who becomes the nanny to give girls] was hilarious, outrageous, dangerous, courageous, inspiring, heartbreaking and totally, totally mad. And she changed my life.”

When you have the director of Muriel’s Wedding calling you “totally, totally mad,” you must be quite a character. No wonder Collette signed on. To celebrate Hogan — who most recently directed Confessions of a Shopaholic and has kept the crazy relatively reined in since 2002′s Unconditional Love — again unleashing it, watch Collette and Rachel Griffith’s “Waterloo” after the jump. PopWatch Dance Party! Gotta love the Aussies.

Cyndi’s Blue Period

Over the course of a career that spans nearly four decades, Cyndi Lauper has proved her staying power by constantly reinventing herself – often with stunning results like her brilliant 2003 covers album, "At Last." So it only stands to reason that eventually, she’d get the blues.

Lauper, who’s been busy delighting viewers and frustrating competitors on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” this spring, is preparing to release Memphis Blues, a collection of blues cover songs she explained was a long time coming.

“This is the album I’ve wanted to make for years,” the singer said. “All of these beautiful songs, and all of the great players on the album, were carefully chosen because I’ve admired them my entire life.

“And I knew from the moment Allen Toussaint hit the keys in ‘Shattered Dreams’ that we were creating something really special.”

To record Blues, Lauper traveled to Memphis and settled in for a spell at the city’s Electraphonic Recording Studio.

After assembling a team of “crackerjack session players” like Stax vets Lester Snell and Skip Pitts and Hi Rhythm Section players Leroy Hodges and Howard Grimes to help her cut the album live on analog equipment while she called out arrangements on the studio floor, Cyndi called out the reinforcements.

Guests on the project include harmonica great Charlie Musselwhite, Ann Peebles (of “I Can’t Stand The Rain” fame), organist Toussaint, guitarist Jonny Lang and, last but by no means least, B.B. King.

'Glee': Matthew Morrison says he isn't anti-Britney Spears

Matthew Morrison insists, "I never said I didn't want a Britney episode" of "Glee."

Despite bountiful reports that the actor known as glee-club adviser Will "Mr. Schue" Schuester is against FOX's hit Tuesday series doing for the Britney Spears catalog what a high-rated episode recently did for Madonna's music, he maintains that isn't the case.

"They kind of took two answers and made them into one to sound really bad," Morrison tells Zap2it. "It's interesting. The show has struck a chord. You look at the iTunes [best-seller] list every week, and we're in the Top 10. A lot of kids had never even heard a Madonna song, and it's the same for the older generation that has never been exposed to rap songs."

Aaron Sorkin defends Newsweek "Gays Can't Play Straight" article

Now That You Mention It, Rock Hudson Did Seem Gay

This is a sentence I never thought I would type: I'm coming to the defense of a theatre critic.

Newsweek's Ramin Setoodeh wrote an article last week titled "Straight Jacket" in which he argues that gay actors can't and shouldn't play straight characters. His "Exhibit A" in the piece is Sean Hayes, the stunningly gifted actor who came to our attention playing Jack MacFarland on the much beloved NBC half-hour comedy Will and Grace. (This was back when NBC broadcast television shows.) Mr. Hayes just opened in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, a 1968 musical by Neil Simon, Burt Bacharach and Hal David that was based on The Apartment, the Academy Award-winning film by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. (Izzy) Diamond that starred Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. Are you following so far?

It doesn't really matter, because all you need to know is that Sean Hayes plays C.C. Baxter in this great show, and that C.C. Baxter is a man who is attracted to women.

Collapse )


Let's count the fail! First of all, this whole article is basically saying that it's the fault of celebrity media that Setoodeh wrote a dumbfuck article. It reminds me of people saying things like "Oh, he's not racist/sexist/whatever, he's really a great guy and just got misinterpreted!" Secondly, apparently we can only criticize homophobia when Aaron Sorkin approves of it. And LOL at Newsweek being a place for real news. Aaron, you write snappy dialogue but let's dial back the straight white privilege a notch, mmmkay?

Amanda Seyfried Covers 'Teen Vogue' June 2010

Amanda Seyfried is a beach beauty on the cover of Teen Vogue’s June/July 2010 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, May 25!

Here’s what the 24-year-old actress (who wore DKNY on the cover) had to share:

On Mean Girls: “People still come up to me and say, ‘You were really funny in that,’ and I’m like, It’s not me. Tina Fey wrote everything I said! [laughs] I think I impressed a lot of people in Mean Girls. I don’t know how I pulled that off.”

On BF Dominic Cooper: “A lot of people ask me, ‘Is Dominic the one?’ I don’t know, and I’m fine with that. Too much planning can lead to heartbreak. Love is great and possible, always, but it’s very rare to have the feeling that ‘I want to be with this person forever.’ ”

On her upcoming film, The Girl With the Red Riding Hood: “I had no idea if I wanted to do Red Riding Hood, but I sat with Catherine for, like, two and a half hours that first day, and she was amazing. She is who should be a big Hollywood director, making cool-a– movies. She has such an imagination. I was like, OK, I’m doing it. Done.”

I love her. And I love the picture they used for the magazine cover. She looks gorgeous.

NBC has pulled the plug on Law & Order just shy of a record-breaking 21st season. The series finale will air on May 24. The network also announced the renewal of Law & Order: SVU and the pickup of new spinoff Law & Order: Los Angeles.

“The full measure of the collective contributions made by Dick Wolf and his Law & Order franchise over the last two decades to the success of NBC and Universal Media Studios cannot be overstated,” said NBC Chairman Jeff Gaspin. “The legacy of his original Law & Order series will continue to make an impact like no other series before.”

Peacock president Angela Bromstad added: “Law & Order has been one of the most successful franchises in the history of television, which is why it is so critical that we continue this important brand and our relationship with Dick Wolf and his team with LOLA and Law & Order: SVU.”

Sam Jackson: S.H.I.E.L.D. movie to come after the Avengers?

It is? The big Marvel news of the day seems to be this little quote from an interview that RadioBigBoy (via The Playlist) recently had with Samuel L. Jackson, better known as Nick Fury in the cinematic Marvel Universe. In the interview, Jackson states: "The Avengers should start shooting some time next year, and then some time after that there'll be a big S.H.I.E.L.D. movie." Whoa, this brings up plenty of questions. First, does he mean a Nick Fury movie, because isn't The Avengers a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie as is? Second, if it's a spin-off, will they bring in other secondary S.H.I.E.L.D. members who aren't big superheroes to fill it up?

Our friends at SlashFilm remind me that we've got at least two S.H.I.E.L.D. members who might appear in this spin-off: Agent Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) and Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson). But who else might be in this if not the big superheroes (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America)? It's interesting to note that so far the only S.H.I.E.L.D. people we've ever met have all been from the Iron Man movies, so maybe we'll meet more secondary characters in the Thor and Captain America movies before we get to The Avengers. All I know for now is that Marvel has a very exciting line-up coming down the road.

I personally welcome any and all superhero movies from Marvel tbh.

Jim beanz Praises Britney

Jim Beanz – a vocal producer that worked on Britney’s 5th studio album spoke about Britney in his recent interview with MTV.

She was amazing to work with, she is a very hard worker. Just as hard as she works on her dance steps she is the exact same in the booth. She was basically open to any and everything that I mentioned. The phrase came last minute right at the end of the session. We recorded that while she was pregnant with her second child. It was really difficult to try to make her sound really sexy at the same time she was pregnant. We knew that as soon as she had the baby she was the one to be able to push that song. We needed that one catch phrase to really bring her back and put her stamp on the industry and that stamp was ‘It’s Britney Bitch’ ”

Couple Bases Their Engagement Photoshoot on the movie "UP"

Have you seen Disney Pixar’s movie UP? Every time I see this movie I cry no matter what. It is quite touching. So, when Wildlfowers Photography shared with us this adorable engagement shoot we were so excited to share it with you!

The idea of this photo shoot came from Lynnette and James. Their favorite movie is UP so they wanted an engagement shoot based around the movie. Below is a sweet and touching letter that James wrote to Lynnette and so kindly shared with Wildlfowers Photography and we are going to share it with you… break out your hankies…

“Lynnette… I have a confession, I am in love with you. It is not the ‘usual’ love, but the love that makes me remember the little things, the ‘boring’ things. It is the boring things in life that I will remember the most. The memories of jumping over sidewalk cracks to how the clouds talk to us. You make me remember the moments. It is that love that makes me believe. Belief that I was there when you were a toothless kid. Dancing through life, only stopping to hold my hand. Letting me know that anything is possible. I am in love with you, ‘my greatest adventure’. – James”

Polanski allegedly had sex with a second teenager

Los Angeles prosecutors have met with a British actress who claims she was sexually abused by director Roman Polanski in Paris when she was 16.

Forty-two-year-old Charlotte Lewis, speaking at a news conference Friday in Los Angeles, says Polanski abused her while she was working on the film "Pirates" in 1982.

Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons acknowledges Lewis met with a prosecutor handling Polanski's 33-year-old sex case involving another girl. Gibbons would not comment further.

Lewis' attorney Gloria Allred says she hopes her client's allegations will affect sentencing for Polanski, who is under house arrest in Switzerland and is fighting extradition. He pleaded guilty in 1977 to having sex with a 13-year-old girl but fled to France.

‘Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley Got Secretly MARRIED to ‘One Tree Hill’ Actress Torrey DeVitto!

Did Paul Wesley slip and tell us that he and fellow CW star Torrey have gone and gotten married?

Hm… We can think of one more reason why Nina Dobrev, 21, won’t be hooking up with her Vampire Diaries co-star Paul Wesley — he’s married! We had heard that Paul, 27, was engaged to Torrey DeVito, 25 (whom you One Tree Hill fans should remember as Nanny Carrie) but we were SHOCKED when we overheard him introduce her as his WIFE at’s Young Hollywood Awards on May 13 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles.

The two kept things pretty quiet at the start of the night — he walked the red carpet alone, and she passed on it altogether — but the couple got super cozy backstage. Though his ring finger was bare, we spotted a shiny, sizeable platinum solitaire diamond ring on her’s, right before the couple went outside for a smoke… and he let her wear his jacket.

We can’t imagine why these two haven’t stepped out as man and wife until this point, but we’re THRILLED they finally did it at the Young Hollywood Awards. Celebrate your love, you two — we couldn’t be happier for the both of you!


good thing no cares about these cw people, they can get married and have babies and we don't find out until the next year.

Facebook’s Gone Rogue; It’s Time for an Open Alternative

Facebook has gone rogue, drunk on founder Mark Zuckerberg’s dreams of world domination. It’s time the rest of the web ecosystem recognizes this and works to replace it with something open and distributed.

Facebook used to be a place to share photos and thoughts with friends and family and maybe play a few stupid games that let you pretend you were a mafia don or a homesteader. It became a very useful way to connect with your friends, long-lost friends and family members. Even if you didn’t really want to keep up with them.

Soon everybody — including your uncle Louie and that guy you hated from your last job — had a profile.

And Facebook realized it owned the network.

Daddy Bear Lovers Rejoice

With the fate of NBC's Heroes still unknown, it looks as if ABC is setting up it's own superhero drama for next fall's schedule. Michael Chiklis, fresh off a long-run on FX's The Sheild, has recently shot a pilot that will be picked up for the fall called No Oridnary Family. According to Entertainment Weekly's Hollywood Insider, the drama, from it's general premise, carries a familar ring to a Pixar film:

No Ordinary Family starring Michael Chiklis (The Shield) - a drama about a family with amazing new abilities.

The Incredibles, anyone?

Joining the drama will be Julie Benz (Dexter) and Tate Donovan (Damages).

The actual schedules for all the networks fall season lineups will be presented next week in New York.

PS: Apparently they didn't hear that bag of crap Heroes got renewed.

Yay more Michael Chiklis though!

NBC Cancels 'Mercy, 'Trauma' (Again)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Some have wondered how far ratings need to drop on an NBC show to get cancelled. Here it is.

NBC has put the medical drama "Mercy" out of its misery. The long-struggling Wednesday night drama most recently pulled a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 in the 9 p.m. hour.

The network also officially pulled the plug on its other freshman medical drama this season, "Trauma."

NBC executives indicated the show was cancelled once already this season, then ordered a few additional episodes once it became clear "The Jay Leno Show" wasn't going to last. "Trauma" was averaging around a 1.7 rating in its final days.

"Mercy" and "Trauma" joins "Law & Order" on the NBC axe-list, which after a protracted struggle officially got cut this morning.


Eight reasons 'The Good Wife' and 'Modern Family' are practically perfect

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Giving a television show a glowing review is, essentially, an act of hope. Unlike critics of other genres, those of us reviewing television see only a portion of what is a continually evolving work of art.

Shows that have terrific pilots often stumble in second and third episodes, while shows with terrible pilots can right themselves. Either way, it isn't until the fifth or sixth episode that you really know what you're getting, though even then there is always room for miraculous improvement and terrible mistakes. So, it's a leap of faith when a television critic reaches into the box marked "superlatives."

In many ways, "Modern Family" and "The Good Wife" are apples and oranges, but they both have many of the attributes that help shows take flight and soar.

'Heroes' canceled by NBC
by Lynette Rice

It seemed inevitable but the news is nonetheless shocking: NBC’s drama Heroes won’t be back for a fifth season. The beleaguered drama only averaged 6.5 million viewers this year. It last aired on Feb. 8, when it only brought in a mere 4.4 million.

The show never managed to recapture those stellar ratings from its critically-beloved first season, when it averaged a whopping 14.5 million. There has been talk that NBC may air a movie that allows the producers to wrap up the story, but nothing has been set in stone.

Old ladies saying dirty things

The gist of nearly every Betty White "SNL" skit was "dirty old granny." Not that we're complaining -- it's a helluva lot better than the 90's rapping granny trend. But now Florence Henderson is hopping on the bawdy bandwagon. In a new interview with's PopWrap, she reveals that fans always ask her about the men she's slept with.

"People always want to know who I had an affair with. I mostly get Frank Sinatra ("no, but I could have"), Henry Kissinger ("no") and now Tiger Woods. Yes, definitely! I was his 18th hole [laughs]!"

Twitter has updated the algorithm behind its popular Trending Topics feature, changing the focus from the most discussed items to what is “most breaking” and “immediately popular.”Twitter confirmed to Mashable that on Wednesday it made updates to improve the relevancy of trending topics. In the past, trending topics were dominated by consistently popular items (e.g. Justin Bieber) with no regard as to what was “hot” at any given moment.
Here’s how Twitter explained the new changes in an update to the Help section:
“The new algorithm identifies topics that are immediately popular, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis, to help people discover the ‘most breaking’ breaking news from across the world. (We had previously built in this ‘emergent’ algorithm for all local trends, described below.) We think that trending topics which capture the hottest emerging trends and topics of discussion on Twitter are the most interesting.”
Twitter quickly goes on to say that the algorithm is a “work in progress” — a.k.a. it’s not going to weed out every random trending topic or catch all breaking news. The company also makes it clear that the algorithm doesn’t block any topics from trending. This is essentially a response to the countless Justin Bieber fans complaining that Bieber is no longer a trending topic.
The move is a good one, but one the company should have made long ago. The value of trending topics has dropped for many over the last few years. Perhaps this change will make them relevant again.

Because ONTD Needs More Juanes In Their Lives

Juanes New Single to Premiere at World Cup Kickoff Concert
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Juanes has unveiled details on his much-anticipated new album, the fifth on his exemplary career. Keeping his fans updated on the status of the recording through his Twitter account, the Colombian singer is putting the final touches on the album in London. This time around he is sharing co-producing credits with Stephen Lipson, a renowned producer that has worked with two of Juanes' biggest influences, Paul McCartney and Beck. This comes as a surprise as it marks a departure from his long-time collaborative producer Gustavo Santaolalla, responsible for his past four acclaimed works.

The singer and political activist describes his new album as "a very positive new journey in both, his personal life and his career." His new single 'Yerbatero' will see the light on June 10, when he will premiere the song as part of his performance at this year's FIFA World Cup Kickoff concert. But the single will not stay at South Africa for too long, Juanes is taking advantage of the event's worldwide popularity by having a simultaneous release at all available digital stores.

World Cup in 27 Days!!! YES!!!!
Also Juanes is just amazing. He can do nothing wrong really

"Cameron Diaz 'Drop Kicks' Tom Cruise During Stunt Rehearsal"

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz get silly in this promotional video for their upcoming action flick "Knight and Day."

Set up as "leaked" behind-the-scenes video from the movie's set, the footage captures Cameron Diaz practicing an upcoming stunt with a stuntman and her costar Cruise. Diaz improbably chomps down on lunch while practicing a high kick with the stuntman, and then Cruise steps in to show her how it's done.

"You're afraid you're gonna hurt me?" Cruise jokes, encouraging Diaz to kick higher and "extend." "I can't hurt you," a jeans-clad Diaz replies as she munches away on a snack.
Cruise then gets distracted by someone yelling to him off-camera and puts down his protective stunt gear while Diaz is still kicking. You'll have to watch the video to see what happens next, but it's a not-too-shabby bit of stunt work on its own, and clearly the studio hopes it will go viral and draw attention to the movie. And it just might work -- as long as nobody's trying to pass it off as an actual mishap.
Cruise and Diaz's next stunt will be to appear as presenters at the MTV Movie Awards. Their action-comedy "Knight and Day" is being positioned as a possible return-to-form for Cruise as an action-movie superstar (his last major shoot-'em-up role was in 2006's "Mission Impossible III").

Super 8 Viral Stuff

The countdown on ended last night, and we got the next chapter in Super 8 viral courtesy of our viral gurus at

According to the site the new stage of viral lead to some interesting images and a new viral website. The images are pages of a newspaper, in which the first page has a big ad for lollipops or ice cream called “Rocket Poppeteers”, while the second page is primarily a large excerpt from President John F. Kennedy’s “Radio and Television Address to the American People on the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty” that occurred on July 26, 1963. Since newspapers usually cover the news from the day before the site purports that “this may give us a date for the paper of July 27, 1963.”

Now we know JJ Abrams loves viral and loves creating fake products i.e. Slusho or Apollo bars. It seems Rocket Poppeteers will follow that same pattern which I think is freakin cool.

Angelina and Johnny not getting along?

According to In Touch Weekly, Angelina Jolie Hates Johnny Depp.

Angelina was reportedly intrigued with Johnny Depp when she first met him.

“She’s getting fed up with Johnny,” says the insider. “Their chemistry was supposed to fly off the charts, but in private, they’re not getting along.”

Johnny considers Angelina uptight and self-involved, Angelina thinks Johnny parties too much.

Their reps say they respect each other and have a great working relationship.

The insider also reveals that Angelina feels Johnny doesn’t spend enough time on his looks. “She was disappointed that he didn’t get in better shape for the role and that he didn’t want to cut his hair.” Meanwhile, Angelina “is in her trailer forever while she gets her hair and makeup done.”

Johnny keeps his distance from Jolie, he sees her as a control freak and a “prima donna.” The source says he can’t get far enough away from her once the cameras stop rolling.

“Johnny retreats to his own trailer until he’s called out again. He think she’s really full of herself.”

The once-friendly costars spend virtually none of their downtime together, says the insider. “Even though Johnny’s family visits periodically, Angelina hasn’t extended an invitation to Johnny.”

“Angelina’s experience on The Tourist hasn’t been the best, to say the least.”

Queen Latifah and personal trainer buy property together

BUYER: Dana Owens and Jeanette Jenkins
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $1,340,000
SIZE: 2,026 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

According to property records, a remodeled Mediterranean home (formerly owned by actor Henry Simmons) was snatched up by none other that Dana Owens–otherwise known as Queen Latifah–and her, er, trainer Jeanette Jenkins who paid $1,340,000 for the house in mid-December of 2009.

Latifah has a new movie opening today called "Just Wright." She plays a physical therapist looking for (heterosexual) love, and apparently finds it it with an injured baskeball star, played by hip-hop artist Common. A 2007 report says Common made a career decision to quit using anti-gay lyrics by fan request, and also the n-word out of respect for Oprah. The property is just one of several that Latifah owns, including three in New Jersey and one in Joppa, MD.

Album of the year gets amazing reviews.

First Impression Review: Kelis’s “Flesh Tone”
Last month I had the opportunity to see Kelis test out material from Flesh Tone at New York’s Santos Party House. Of the songs performed, the tracks that stood out to me were 22nd Century and Brave but last night the album leaked. Hence today’s First Impression Review of the album.

It’s no secret that Kelis has had her personal life aired out in the press over the past few years, but rather than explain herself she has presented us with an awesome new dance record. Flesh Tone is to Kelis as Ray of Light was to Madonna, an album of self-discovery and empowerment amidst an amazing yet chaotic dance party.

Although the album boasts only 9 tracks, there is absolutely no lag or weak moments on Flesh Tone, with tracks bleeding into the next to create a non-stop dance party. The album is out on May 17th Worldwide but unfortunately for Canada and the US we have to wait until July 6th. Be sure to purchase your own copy upon it’s release!

Intro: Smooth and mellow start. Kelis purrs “You draw me in, everytime I think I’m free you win” before fading into 22nd Century
22nd Century: Lyrically & thematically reminiscent of Kaleidescope in which Kelis was infatuated with the future/outerspace.
4th of July (Fireworks): Kelis shows off her unique vocal range in this track wh ile the beat makes it nearly impossible to not want to dance.
Home: I’d describe this as a dark-pop dance track.
Acapella: Flesh Tone’s lead single, using music as a metaphor for a nondescript relationship. A colorful and feel good track.
Scream: Amazing track, production-wise sounds like it’s already been remixed. Will definitely tear up the dancefloors & spawn many remixes.
Emancipate: Empowering and anthemic dance track urging the listener to “emancipate yourself!” And that I will…BRB!
Brave: Lyrically Kelis gets incredibly personal on this track which is backed by an incredible pounding beat. Brave is as the lyrics say “super strong!”
Song For the Baby: Inspiring, sweet and groovy track dedicated to son Knight. Closes Flesh Tone on a bright note!

Verdict: A

Flesh Tone is a solid dance record with a much-welcomed sense of urgency, just in time for the summer. Fleshy lyrics and driving beats make Flesh Tone the party of the year…don’t miss out!

Despite The Final Destination being advertised as the last in the series, audiences will get at least one more chance to revel in gruesome 3D deaths when Final Destination 5 opens Aug. 26, 2011. Final Destination got the series off to a solid start in 2000, grossing $53.3 million. Subsequent entries Final Destination 2 and Final Destination 3 made $46.96 and $54.1 million, respectively. Opening at the end of August last year, The Final Destination, the first of the series to be in 3D, hit a series high of $66.5 million, so it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. greenlit a fifth installment. Final Destination 5 is currently the only release scheduled for Aug. 26, 2011.

Kanye West Premieres Photos Of “Neverland Lost” A Portrait of Michael Jackson

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On Thursday morning (May 13), Kanye West took to his website to post a series of photographs taken from the upcoming book "Neverland Lost: A Portrait of Michael Jackson," which gives fans an intimate look at the late King of Pop's life through his expansive collection of pop art, clothing and artifacts.

The series of more than 60 shots — taken by acclaimed Swiss photographer Henry Leutwyler — showcases just a portion of Jackson's vast collection, but it's a fascinating glimpse nonetheless: gilded statues, cherubs carved from marble, oil paintings depicting Jackson as a medieval prince, Disney figurines. That's not to mention up-close shots of MJ's famous bejeweled military outfits, dance shoes with his name scrawled on the soles and rhinestone-covered gloves.

Included with the photographs on Kanye's site is a message from Leutwyler, which explains the impetus behind the "Neverland" book.

"It is said that the pharaohs built tombs to reveal their lives to future generations. Michael Jackson sacrificed his childhood to the calling of his musical gift," Leutwyler wrote. "Neverland was the pyramid he constructed to a lost childhood. The artifacts captured in this book return us to the Neverland he lost."

West — who, in recent months has been keeping a low profile as he finishes work on a new album — also added his own message, thanking Leutwyler for sharing the photographs with him and paying tribute to Jackson, a man he considers to be musical royalty.

"Thank you, Henry! I'm grateful to be premiering your photos. The book is an amazing document of Mike's treasures," West wrote. "His clothes, art, and artifacts express the essence of the greatest pop icon of our time. Mike truly was a King!"
