Top 10 Movies Coming Out That We Hope Won't Suck
by Ryan Fleming

Here is our short list of movies coming out that we think stand a chance at being a box office success. Do you agree?

1) Avatar 2 & 3


Directed by James Cameron

Yeah, the first Avatar has just been released on DVD, and yeah, the sequel and possible third entry are still in the negotiating stages (which is likely just James Cameron smiling with open arms as Fox piles big bags with dollar signs into his open arms), but as soon as Cameron said that he originally foresaw Avatar as a trilogy, he instantly guaranteed himself several hundreds of millions of dollars of our money that we will gladly fork over.

The thought process goes something like this: there is no release date for Avatar 2- don’t care, gimmie. No one, including Cameron is signed on- don’t care, gimmie! There isn’t even a script yet- don’t care gimmie!! And so on.

All we ask is that the sequels don’t suck. Sure, we want them to be every bit as jaw droppingly awesome as the original, but as long as they don’t straight up suck, we will be ok with it. There is nothing worse than when a fantastic opening to a trilogy is ruined by mediocre and bewildering sequels. Especially when the sequels involve a bunch of hippies dancing in a cave for five straight minutes of screen time (looking at YOU, Matrix). Make it pretty, throw in 3D, and you already have at the very least, a watchable movie. The effects alone should give it a bit of a pass at parts, just like the first movie did when it comes to the originality of the “Dances With Blue Monkeys meets FernGully” plot.

The proposed sequels will almost certainly be in 3D, and if they are even just decent, they could further push the 3D TV market, so there could be a lot riding on the return to Pandora. So please James Cameron, we all love you and have faith. Just don’t suck!

Fixed the cut, I had an extra tag in there and couldn't find it, so I panicked and deleted the post before more people could yell at me xD. So ONTD, which movie do you want to see doing well at the box-office and which one you want to bomb/suck? I can't wait for Tron Legacy. It looks awesome!

Eli Roth Undergoes Surgery After Hostile Sea Urchin Attack

in response to this post:

Moviemaker and actor ELI ROTH is still suffering from his near-death experience over the New Year when he was stung by deadly sea urchins - the star underwent surgery on Wednesday to remove one of the creature's spikes.

The Inglourious Basterds star was holidaying in Mexico when a kayaking adventure went wrong and he was pulled towards a sink hole.

Roth managed to swim to a rock, only to find it was covered with poisonous urchins and he was stung 200 times.

And now, months after the horrendous attack, Roth is still undergoing treatment for his injuries.

In a post on his personal page, he writes, "Surgery today for final sea urchin pin. If I die, know that my only true regret in life was sitting through America's Sweethearts."

His girlfriend Peaches Geldof admits she was horrified when she saw the object that doctor's removed from her beau's foot.

She tweeted, "Just saw the sea urchin spike that came out of @eliroth's foot. Its about the size of a small elephant. Mildly disturbed to say the least."

But Roth confirms the procedure was a success, adding: "I'm alive! Thanks to everyone @ UCLA Orthopedic, and to peaches_g for being an amazing nurse. The pin was HUGE and not at all dissolved."

'Scream 4' Casting News

Dimension is taking the first steps to casting “Scream 4,” which is heading toward a July start date.

Lake Bell is in negotiations to join the franchise, and offers are out to “Twilight” actress Ashley Greene, “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin (“Twelve”) for key starring roles.

“Scream 4” reunites Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson, who kicked off a horror- movie revival with his “Scream” script in 1996. The story brings back original cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, though the new flick is seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims, with Williamson already under contract to write a fifth installment.

If deals are concluded, Greene would play Campbell’s cousin Jill, essentially the heroine of the movie, and Panettiere would play her best friend, a nerdy film geek. Culkin would play a potential love interest for Jill.

Bell is negotiating to play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school.

Casting is proceeding slowly because Craven and Dimension are not sending the script to agencies in order to protect its secrecy. With only character descriptions, actors are having a difficult time deciding whether certain roles are for them. Reps for the actors declined comment.

The film, which will shoot in Michigan, is set for an April 15, 2011 release.

From “Genie in a Bottle” to the controversial “Not Myself Tonight,” Aguilera goes “Behind the Music” on Sunday, June 13th at 9pm. It’s followed by Aguilera’s own “VH1 Storytellers” where she performs hits as well as new tracks from “Bionic.”

Crime, drugs, and jail time have all been part of DMX’s struggle, as set to be chronicled on his own “Behind the Music,” premiering Monday, June 7th at 8pm. Rapper Eve’s past includes working as a stripper, nude photos, and a sex tape, along with bouts of depression. Eve speaks candidly about her beginnings as well as her success in music, film and television on her “Behind the Music” premiering Monday, June 14th at 9pm.

Usher is at the top of the music scene once again with his latest album “Raymond v. Raymond,” but on his “Behind the Music,” he’ll discuss for the first time the truth about rumors about his divorce from wife Tameka, his relationship with Chili from TLC, and more. Usher’s “Behind the Music” premieres July 19th.

Courtney Love, Hole bandmates, and more discuss the troubled star’s past, and truthfully, her troubled present during her “Behind the Music,” premiering June 21st, which spans her upbringing in foster homes to today, where she rejoins Hole for the album “Nobody’s Daughter.”

From “American Idol” dreamer to Oscar-winning “Dreamgirl,” Jennifer Hudson had the perfect Hollywood story before a tragic murder took the lives of her mother, brother, and nephew. Now a mother herself, Hudson discusses her tragedy as well as her triumphant return to the music scene in her “Behind the Music,” premiering June 28th at 9pm, which also features interviews with Jennifer’s sister Julia, fiancé David Otunga, Queen Latifah, Whitney Houston, Ne-Yo, Robin Thicke, Clive Davis and more


Paris Hilton flashes butt in Cannes

Some like to keep it (and by it, we mean the naked bum) in the family. Not Paris Hilton who, clad in a royal blue gown and gobs of diamonds, bared her panty-less derriere for all the very important peeps at the VIP Room club in Cannes. Nicky Hilton and Conrad Hilton stood by sissy's side. Conrad appeared to feel protective of his sassy sis, but cameras caught Nicky in a big fat glare. Not sure why the grimace, Nicky—it's hard to flash your bum in floor-length gown! You should be proud!

While it's impossible to answer that question, "Just what was Paris thinking?"—only Paris can know what's in a Paris' mind—it's safe to say the red carpet regulars at VIP Room were less than shocked. Paris is Paris, after all. Gotta love 'er.

Oh yeah, and did we mention that Paris was also caught on film poking the breasts of a busty cocktail waitress wielding a nebuchadnezzar of Champagne? What, is that weird?

'Going the Distance' Trailer, Starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long

Here's the trailer for "Going the Distance," starring Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Ron Livingston, Jim Gaffigan, Kelli Garner, Rob Riggle and Christina Applegate.

Erin and Garrett are good together--even when they're apart. When aspiring journalist Erin (Barrymore) moves to San Francisco to finish her last year of school, boyfriend Garrett (Long), an assistant music scout, stays in Manhattan to pursue his ambitions and wait on that promotion he's been promised. With a webcam connection and frequent flier miles, the two gamely navigate the pitfalls and miscommunications of their bi-coastal romance, dodging bad advice from friends and some predatory singles who won't take "taken" for an answer. But when it seems their wait is almost over, Erin scores her dream job in California just as Garrett's career heats up in New York. The big breaks they've been hoping for could break them up for good...unless their love can truly go the distance. The romantic comedy opens on August 27th.


P Diddy misses Vegas showing. Video proves Brand and Hill show up anyway.

Lady GaGa:"You're Fired!"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Lady Gaga has allegedly fired her whole security team.

The Alejandro singer is said to have gone Gaga at her bodyguards after a fan managed to jump on stage with her in Japan earlier this month, leading her to dismiss her entire security force.

A source told The Sun: "She went potty…She couldn't believe they could let these things happen so she fired them on the spot."

"She goes out of her way to make her shows perfect and expects the same from her people."

The insider added: "Some thought she would calm down but she put them straight on a plane home."

The tabloid also reports that the 24-year old sacked her wardrobe assistant for failing to lock her dressing room door.

GaGa is set to bring her Monster Ball tour back to our shores next week so we can only hope her new security team has taken note of the Lady G do's and don'ts…

Love wanted Aguilera's 'Beautiful'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Courtney Love has revealed that she "begged" songwriter Linda Perry to give her the hit song 'Beautiful' before it was released by Christina Aguilera.

Love, who recently released the album Nobody's Daughter with her band Hole, claimed that Perry said she would not be prepared for the attention that would come with the song.

"In my entire life I've never wanted a song fully rendered, that someone else has written - ever... [the song] was 11 years old at the time... and she ended up giving it to Christina Aguilera, but I begged her for it," Love said.

"She said to me at the time... 'You're not ready for top 40; you will be. You'll hate this song because you didn't write it' - which is totally true... and then we got into a fierce fight about whether she should give it to Britney [Spears] or Christina."

Despite refusing to give her the song, Love said that the former 4 Non Blondes singer insitsted the pair would eventually write a better track together.

Love continued: "She said, 'Someday, you and me are gonna write a song that's better and better suited for you'. Again it's an old song... She just whipped it out one day."

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Lauren Conrad Style’ Cover Revealed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We were thrilled when we first heard back in November that Lauren Conrad would be writing a style book, and we weren’t the only ones that wanted her fashion feedback. Conrad tells PEOPLE exclusively that her new tome was, in fact, inspired by all of her fans.

“The first book tour I went on, I had the opportunity to meet thousands and thousands of fans. The majority of the questions were about fashion,” explains Conrad. “It was fun to share all the things I had learned.”

So what will you see in Lauren Conrad Style? Besides tons of never-before-seen photos and relatable advice from Conrad herself along with her glam squad, expect “personal stories, live and learn stories,” and yes, even “a couple of high school horror stories.”

While Conrad does find wearing cocktail dresses on the red carpet easier than dressing for everyday life, she devotes chapters to every occasion, even deciphering dress codes like the dreaded business casual. Her must-tip: don’t be afraid to take your pieces to a tailor to achieve your perfect fit. “Most of the things I buy are tailored," she dishes, emphasizing the importance of finding your best fit instead of just following trends.

Lauren Conrad Style will hit bookshelves on October 5, 2010, the same date as her third novel Sugar & Spice. Find out more about Lauren’s books at

EXCLUSIVE: Dad: Spencer Pratt Is Not a Bad Influence on Heidi

Spencer Pratt recently declared that he doesn't allow his wife, Heidi, to watch TV or go online.

Still, Heidi's dad, Bill Montag, tells he doesn't think Spencer, 26, is a bad influence on his daughter, 23.

"Heidi is such a strong-willed individual that I don't think that Spencer is going to manipulate her," he says. "Also I think she knows, and so does Spencer: if I thought my daughter was in any harm's way with Spencer, I would be there."

Still, he's "very worried" about Heidi, who ceased communication with her father, 63, in March and changed her phone number "so I can't even reach her," he says.

Robert Rodriguez nabs remake rights to Bakshi’s Fire & Ice

Ain’t It Cool interviewed Robert Rodriguez about his upcoming grindhouse flick Machete, which hits theaters on September 3, 2010, and during the extensive discussion, they touched on Fire & Ice, a dream project Rodriguez apparently has been circling for years. Master illustrator Frank Frazetta’s artwork brought the original Ralph Bakshi animated film to life in 1983.

Rodriguez reports that he and original director and character-creator Ralph Bakshi have worked out the details and a live-action Fire & Ice feature film will be coming from Troublemaker Studios.

Rodriguez will control the rights to Fire & Ice, which bodes well for purists, who would never want to see the film made “family friendly” for the sake of marketing. I’m hoping for skin-tearing, bloody animal fights, and vicious hand to hand combat.
It’s actually in my power to set it up and get it made, which wasn’t the case on other projects. And for you filmmakers out there, that’s really the best way to get things done. If you can manage to get the rights yourself to a property by dealing directly with the artists and creators like I did with Frank Miller on Sin City, and now with Ralph Bakshi on Fire and Ice, it makes a world of difference and you can get started sooner rather than never,” said Rodriguez.

When asked what she thought of Limbaugh, Lynch responded, "We could do without him, can't we?"

Lynch otherwise had positive things to say about the names Couric brought up, including Olivia Newton-John, Ellen DeGeneres and Jennifer Coolidge.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand – The Complete First Season features content too risqué even for cable

Starz Original series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, comes home when Anchor Bay releases the critical and audience hit as a heroic four-disc DVD and Blu-ray on September 21st. Both the Spartacus: Blood and Sand – The Complete First Season DVD and Blu-ray are clad in high-end collectible, book-style packaging.


Enhanced digital effects have been added to several of the episodes, and as a Blu-ray exclusive, four episodes have been personally selected as “Directors’ Cut Extended Episodes,” featuring content too risqué, even for cable TV.

It will focus on Batiatus and Lucretia, as well as some new characters that will be introduced.

The bonus features on Spartacus: Blood and Sand – The Complete First Season are anything but spartan. Hours of featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, audio commentaries, interviews, and outtakes will get the “thumbs up” from the casual Thracian to the die-hard Roman!

DVD and Blu-ray bonus features include:

* Gladiator Camp (featurette)
* History Rewritten (featurette)
* Make-up Effects (featurette)
* The Hole (featurette)
* Plus more featurettes!
* Audio Commentaries
* Episodes with Enhanced Digital Effects

Barenboim to conduct La Scala season premiere

The La Scala opera house will open its 2010-11 season with Wagner's "Die Walkuere" conducted by Daniel Barenboim.

The famed Milanese opera house announced its 2010-11 season on Friday including 15 operas, six ballets as well as concerts and tours in Belgium, Austria and Argentina – the biggest lineup in the last 20 years.

The announcement comes amid protests against a government reforms of management of the country's state-supported opera houses that would, among other things, limit the ability of successful theaters to pay their musicians, singers and other workers higher wages.

"Die Walkuere" will open the season Dec. 7 and feature some of the most famous Wagnerian singers, including soprano Nina Stemme as Bruennhilde and mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier in the soprano role of Sieglinde.


Man, I'd love to see him conduct Wagner. Where are my classical music ONTD'ers? What's your favorite composers and pieces/operas?

Westboro Baptist Church To Protest At 'Satan Worshipper' Ronnie James Dio's Funeral

A vile baptist church in the US infamous for its hatred of homosexuals is planning to picket Ronnie James Dio's funeral.

The notorious Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas is gearing up to protest at Dio's memorial service in Hollywood on May 30th as they claim he is a “Satan worshipper / enabler” who “encourages violence”.

The church, who have the URL of, is led by the minister Fred Phelps who has previously claimed that terrorist attack and natural disasters are God's revenge for a society that tolerates homosexuality.

Part of the church's warped beliefs is that they have the “duty to protest and picket at certain events, including funerals, to promote their religious message.”

Having previously protested at military funerals, now the sick bastards have turned their attention to Ronnie James Dio.

Ali Fedotowsky: Best Bachelorette Ever?

Were Ali Fedotowsky writing on her Facebook page, she could legitimately claim "complicated" under relationship status.

She's the young woman who was on "The Bachelor" last season and left Jake Pavelka to return to her job at Facebook. Now she's featured on the sixth cycle of ABC's "The Bachelorette," which begins Monday, May 24.

Fedotowsky was shooting the series, and had just escaped being stranded in Iceland, Portugal and Turkey because of the erupting Icelandic volcano, when she talked to Zap2it.

"I believe everything happens for a reason," she says. "In retrospect, it's not so much that I made a mistake as much as I learned a lesson. I have put my career first in my life. The last few years, I was trying to build a career. I will never be happy in my career or life if I don't find love."

That sort of instant openness and approachability is what makes her reality show gold. And no one knows that better than Mike Fleiss, the producer behind this cottage industry of looking for love on TV.

"She is my favorite lead character in the entire history of the series -- 'Bachelor' or 'Bachelorette,' " Fleiss says. "She is so telegenic, so likable on camera. She is the most watchable person we ever had in the title role. She has the certain something. She sparkles. She's magical."

Granted Fleiss is an impresario, but he doesn't usually gush like that. What is it about the 25-year-old blonde?

"She jumps off the screen," Fleiss says of Fedotowsky. "She pops. She is like a young, blond Sandra Bullock. Both are incredibly gorgeous women, but they're not threatening to women, not the bombshell girl, off-putting. She seems like the girl next door but just happens to be super-hot."

Fedotowsky says she is putting her life on hold for love. In addition to giving up her job, she left her apartment share in San Francisco and wants to exit the show in a committed relationship.

"My goal is to find someone that I love and he loves me back," she says. "I am not just choosing you; you are choosing me, too. It is a two-way street even though I am handing out the roses. I need them to love me back. I would love this to end in a proposal."


Jennifer Hudson's Weight Loss: How She Did It

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Once a size 16, Jennifer Hudson is now reveling in her new size 6 body, telling PEOPLE, "I’m in the best shape of my life!"

After giving birth to her son last August, Hudson, 28, had to drop her post-pregnancy pounds for her next movie role as Winnie Mandela. "Whatever it takes to morph into a character I’ll do it," says Hudson.

But the star went about her weight loss in a healthy way by working out with trainer Harley Pasternak and learning about portion control through Weight Watchers’ point system (Hudson became the official spokesperson for the weight loss plan earlier this year).

Now as the actress (official Web site) gets ready to fly to the South African set of her new movie, Hudson will face the challenges of figuring out how many points are in vetkoek – a South African fried treat. Just don’t think she’s going to fall off the weight-loss wagon anytime soon.

"She will need to investigate every new product on this new continent," says Liz Josefsberg, Hudson’s Weight Watchers counselor. "I am not the least bit worried about Jennifer… She is an amazing and resilient personality who will be just fine in her surroundings.",,20386960,00.html

Announcing this year that the band was officially calling it quits and going their separate ways, they put together this last world tour, "Ending on a High Note". They have sold out concerts in every country and will end this farewell tour in their home of Norway.

Ashes to Ashes: Gene Hunt's last stand

Tonight Ashes to Ashes' Gene Hunt will disappear off television screens forever. Quite how that will happen has been the subject of intense speculation – so are you excited?

So farewell DCI Gene Hunt: former Sheriff of Manchester, snakeskin-booted Gene Genie, hard-drinking police dinosaur, the Guv. Cut from the same cloth as The Sweeney's Jack Regan with an equally strong sense of justice, Philip Glenister's Manc Lion will tonight roar one last time.

Over the past five years I've been a regular visitor to the sets of both Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes, gazing at the pints and pickled eggs in CID local The Railway Arms and the Chianti bottles in Luigi's. It's fair to say I'm a fan. And like so many others, ever so slightly obsessed with the Mars and Ashes universe.

Lindsay Lohan: My Cocaine Photo Was "a Set Up"

Lindsay Lohan is crying foul over a new snapshot of her lounging an arm's length away from what appears to be cocaine.

First posted at TMZ, the photo, featuring the 23-year-old actress, several friends and lines of white powder, was taken at an after-hours party in Cannes, France. She partied in the French seaside town until 7:30 a.m. Friday, despite major legal troubles back at home.

When shown the photo by, Lohan claimed to be shocked. "That's a set up," she retorted, without going into specifics. "That's so untrue."

A cocaine possession charge is the last thing Lohan needs right now. The star missed a progress report hearing in Los Angeles on Thursday; claiming her passport had been stolen, Lohan said she had been unable to leave France. (She told that her father, Michael, may have been behind the document's disappearance.)

Although an L.A. Superior Court judge issued a warrant for her arrest following Lohan's no-show, it was rescinded late Thursday after the star posted a $10,000 bail bond.

Her next court date is Monday morning, where a judge will determine if she violated the probation terms of her 2007 DUI conviction. The Mean Girls star faces 180 days behind bars.

"I hope thats not cocaine in the picture"

A new photo may have just created another big issue for the troubled actress.

A photo of Lindsay partying with pals in a hotel room in Cannes has  a very interesting – and overlooked until now – detail.

The picture shows what is clearly lines of a white powder cut and arranged next to each other on a table in front of her.

Now we’re not saying what the powder is, but Danette Meyers, the prosecutor in her DUI case told exclusively: “I hope that isn’t cocaine in the pictures.”

The photo is on TMZ but they failed to point out the white powder on the table.

But spotted it immediately and legal sources tell us that Lindsay is lucky she’s out of the U.S. because it will be very hard to prove exactly what the powder is, saving her from even more problems.

Enjoying some time off, Dianna Agron was spotted doing some grocery shopping at Whole Foods in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon (May 20). The “Glee” actress looked lovely as she exited the supermarket, carrying an eco-friendly shopping bag and wearing a red Kabbalah bracelet.

And while she’s definitely made a name for herself in front of the camera, Dianna is already showing signs that the directing bug has bitten her. Miss Agron directed a music video for Thao with the Get Down Stay Down that will be used to raise money for Oxfam.

Apple Cancels "Get A Mac" Ads

The campaign of a decade is no more. The now famous “Get a Mac” ads have been replaced with a page dedicated to the sentiment “Why you’ll love a Mac” on Apple’s website.

The page redirect was noticed by MacRumors and appears to confirm suspicions — which began after Justin Long suggested that Apple was moving on — that Apple would no longer be producing any more of the Mac vs. PC personified spots.

The long-running campaign certainly served to create memorable moments in advertising history, but more recent ads teetered on mediocrity and lacked the same comedic flair as earlier renditions. Still, the ads will no doubt be missed by Apple fans everywhere, though we can assume that Apple will come out with something to replace them in the near future.

First A-Team Clip: Falling Tank vs. Drone

The most talked about scene from The A-Team trailers has Face popping his head out of a tank that has just parachuted from an exploding plane. At who knows how many thousands of feet in the air, Face proceeds to scream like a banshee and fire the tank's top gun at attacking aircraft.
It's the type of scene that walks a fine line between hellacious and hilarity. If you're not sure where your feelings fall just yet, IGN has released the first clip from the film that expands upon this very scene and should help sway your opinion.

Right to love and be loved: Add Your Name to Madonna's Statement

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Dear friends,

Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga will spend the next 14 years in a Malawi jail, sentenced to hard labor.

They aren't murderers. They didn't steal. In fact, they didn't commit a crime.

They were convicted of homosexuality.

I call upon the progressive men and women of Malawi -- and around the world -- to challenge this decision in the name of human dignity and equal rights for all.

Please add your name to mine in a pledge of support for the freedom to love:

I am shocked and saddened by the recent decision made by the Malawian court. As a matter of principle, I believe in equal rights for all people, no matter what their gender, race, color, religion, or sexual orientation.

This week, Malawi took a giant step backward. The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support our basic human right to love and be loved.

I will not sit back and be silent while two men are sentenced to 14 years hard labor simply for loving each other. I hope you will add your name to mine, and speak out to your friends and family on this issue:

Kate Moss was burgled this morning

£80,000 Banksy artwork stolen in house raid while model and her family were asleep
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Valuable artwork including an £80,000 Banksy portrait was stolen from Kate Moss's home, it has been reported.

Thieves raided the model's £7 million home in Maida Vale, north London, in the early hours of Thursday.

Kate, 36, her partner Jamie Hince and mother Linda were believed to be asleep in the house at the time, the Daily Mirror reported.

A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with the burglary and inquiries are ongoing, police said.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Camden Police are investigating a burglary at Greville Road, NW6, from approximately 4.20am on Thursday, May 20.

"A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with it and inquiries are ongoing."
It is not the first time works by guerilla artist Banksy were targeted by thieves.

Police are hunting a man and a woman who smashed their way into an art gallery in New Compton Street, central London, earlier this month and snatched Banksy prints worth more than £16,000. In 2007, 10 prints worth about £10,000 were stolen from a branch of Art Republic in Brighton.

Groff happily dropped into 'hurricane' that is Glee

According to Jonathan Groff, fans of TV’s Glee seem “OK” with his character Jesse St. James, a hated Glee club rival and romantic interloper.

“I haven’t been spit on yet,” laughs Groff. “And I got to say — I don’t see Jesse as a bad guy. I think maybe Rachel (Lea Michele) has found a match in Jesse. But that’s just me.”

Of course, it helps that Groff’s on-screen paramour is also his long time best friend. Groff and Michele worked the Broadway stage together years ago in a production of Spring Awakening.

“It was my first big break. And to be working with my best friend now doesn’t seem like work at all.”

It wasn’t a complete coincidence that they would end up on the same TV show. It was Groff who first introduced Michele to Glee creator Ryan Murphy. And when Murphy first mentioned he was working on a new show called Glee, he already had Groff in mind for a part.

Problem was Groff was initially tied up with another series pilot. But when that failed to catch on, Glee beckoned.

abc's "the gates" teaser + description

If Pretty Little Liars is "Desperate Housewives for teens," ABC's upcoming crime drama The Gates vows to be "Desperate Housewives meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

The Gates, set to premiere on June 20, revolves around big city-cop Nick Monahan, who gets assigned as chief of police of what appears to be a sleepy suburban community nestled atop a picturesque mountain. Each street is lined with perfectly manicured homes protected by the massive iron gates, and Nick and his family expect a change in pace from their complicated life in Chicago.

It doesn't take long before he discovers that just like Wisteria Lane, the neighborhood holds a lot of secrets. What exactly? We're not sure, but it's along the lines of "unnatural influence and insatiable ... ravenous cravings." In other words, vampires.

Prison Break alum Frank Grillo will play the cop in the supernatural crime drama, while Luka Mably of The Prince and Me will appear as a vampire-cardiologist, one of the residents of the community. Janina Gavankar from The L Word will play a local cop with a dark past, and finally Chadra West will play a tea shop owner.

At 51, she could be forgiven for preferring nights in on the couch with a cup of cocoa. But Madonna proved aged hasn't wearied her as he hit London hot spot Aura last night.

The energetic singer and mother of four mingled with party-goers half her age at the Piccadilly venue until the early hours of this morning.

She did her best to pull together a youthful ensemble which included jack boots, shorts and a shredded leather jacket.

She went all out with accessories too, trimming her look with a trilby hat, one black glove and sunglasses.

There was no sign of her on-again, off-again boyfriend Jesus Luz, who at 23 would have fitted in with ease at the bar.

erhaps she was was celebrating the news that the creator of Glee has confirmed a sequel to the hugely popular Madonna tribute episode.

It is also possible she will make a cameo on the hugely popular programme.
Creator Ryan Murphy said this week: 'She's sort of the muse of our show, I think now. She loves the show and has supported it.

'She gets the show is about arts education and so she's very supportive about that.'

TV veteran James Marsters is adding another role to his resume: husband!

A rep for the actor (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Smallville, Caprica, Torchwood) confirms exclusively to that he's set to wed longtime girlfriend Patricia Rahman this fall.

Justin Bieber wants to bulk up his small frame, so he's hired Taylor Lautner's trainer Jordan Yuam. Justin is impressed with how he helped Taylor transform his body. The insider to Enquirer: 'Justin’s positive he has the intensity and focus to get the same results as Taylor. He’s already a megastar at 16, now he wants the physique to go with it.

Gorgeous mama speaks

Padma Lakshmi: Krishna Is a ‘Delight in Every Way’

As a new mother to 3-month-old daughter Krishna Thea, Padma Lakshmi relishes in the simplicities of motherhood.

“I love to rock her to sleep, just to nurse her and hold her,” Lakshmi told Moms & Babies Thursday at the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s second annual Blossom Ball at the New York Public Library.

“She’s a delight in every way and everything is better with her around.”

The Top Chef host and co-founder of the foundation certainly has reason to be delighted.

While Lakshmi, 39, suffered for years from endometriosis, the proud mother is “eager to see” her baby girl’s “quirks and idiosyncrasies.”

“Her personality is bubbling forth,’ says a smiling Lakshmi. “I think we all egotistically say she has the eyes of this person or the humor of that person. I’m sure that’s true but when I look at Krishna, I think of her. I don’t see other people.”

Come party with Lady Gaga

From her dressing room to a sex club, an exclusive interview in which the singer discusses fame, the paparazzi – and those health rumours

“Hi!” Gaga’s dressing room, backstage at the O2 World Arena in Berlin. With the walls and ceiling draped in black, it resembles a pop-Gothic seraglio. But while scented candles burn churchishly, a gorgeous vintage record player on the floor – surrounded by piles of vinyl – and works of art hung on the wall give it a cheerful air. There is a table, laid with beautiful china. There are flowers, growing in the dark. And at the head of the tea table, among the flowers: Gaga.

Two things strike you about her immediately. First, that she really isn’t dressed casually. In a breast-length, silver-grey wig, she has a black lace veil wound around her face, and sits, framed, in an immense, custom-made, one-off Alexander McQueen cloak. The effect is one of having been ushered into the presence of a very powerful fairytale queen: possibly one who has recently killed Aslan, on the Stone Table.

The second thing you notice is that she is being lovely. Absolutely lovely. Both literally and figuratively; what’s under the veil and the cloak is a diminutive, well brought up, New York Catholic girl from a wealthy middle-class family, with twinkly brown eyes and a minxy sense of humour.

John Waters' 6 favorite books

The writer/director of Hairspray, Pink Flamingo and Cecil B. Demented shares his "harrowing," "politically incorrect" and "feel-good" favorite reads

John Waters, who's created some of the most controversial cult films in American cinematic history, reflects on the figures that influenced him in his new memoir, Role Models. Here, he shares some of the books that helped shape his world-view, too:

The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell (Harper, $17). This harrowing, repulsive, and witty thousand-page, gay–Nazi–Final Solution novel may have won the two top French literary prizes, but here in America it was panned by the critics. Of course, the French were right. Not since the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom has there been such an explosive literary shocker. And there’s a 39-hour audiobook version available, too. Just imagine that recording session!

Swimming Underground by Mary Woronov (out of print). Still the best book written by a Warhol superstar. If a speed freak’s memoir makes you feel nostalgic, like this one did for me, is there something the matter with you? Unfortunately, yes, there is.

Suicide in the Entertainment Industry by David K. Frasier (McFarland & Co., $50). The perfect gift book for disillusioned showbiz types. An encyclopedia of sad deaths—not only of famous stars but obscure editors, sound technicians, and other never-heard-of, unfortunately depressed, behind-the-scenes crew members.

The Possibility of an Island by Michel Houellebecq (Vintage, $15). My favorite politically incorrect novelist can write like nobody’s business, including yours. Incredibly cruel, sexist, and outside any moral standards, this insanely brilliant science-fiction novel is as good a place as any to start reading this author … or stop.

Sita by Kate Millett (out of print). Every possible, miserable second of the breakdown of a doomed lesbian love affair is captured in meticulously maddening prose by the No. 1 feminist writer of all time. The kind of lovesickness that usually sends one to psychiatric help here inspires Ms. Millett to use her readers as soundboards for her own therapy, and I couldn’t be more happy to oblige.

The Ghastly One by Jimmy McDonough (Chicago Review Press, $27). An eye-popping biography of a forgotten monster, exploitation film director Andy Milligan. Scary, disgusting, violent, and anything but inspiring, this feel-bad book makes me feel good by asking the all-important question, “Can a genius be untalented, too?”

John Waters is the writer/director of the films Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Cecil B. Demented. His book Role Models will be published next week by Farrar, Straus & Giroux.

Gaga: "I don’t think of myself as the new Madonna!" + wins awards

Lady Gaga recently gave an interview to French Magazine Les inrocks. Of course and once again, the name Madonna is all over it…

Les inrocks - Why did you dedicate your album to Prince, Madonna, David Bowie and Andy Warhol ?
Lady Gaga - I’ve been listening to Prince and Madonna a lot. David Bowie and Andy Warhol are inspiring me. For me they are major artists because the visual aspect of their music is very strong. When I’m home listing to the radio and Prince, Bowie or Madonna’s music is being played, I see something, which isn’t the case with many other singers.
Les inrocks - Did you say that you were the new Madonna?
Lady Gaga - I never said that. I’m very angry when I read this so-called quote. From the beginning of my career people have been saying that I was the new Madonna. So take note of this: I DON’T THINK OF MYSELF AS THE NEW MADONNA!
Les inrocks - You’re blond and an Italian from New York... Don’t you think there’s room for comparison?
Lady Gaga - I do have the utmost respect for her. In some ways it’s indecent to ask a kid like me who’s been around for five minutes if I think I’m the next pop icon. It’s like ‘Who do you think you are?’ You have to let me accomplish more before you call me a pop icon.
Les inrocks - But do you want to be a pop icon?
Lady Gaga - If I wanna rule the world? The answer is yes. I think that secretly everyone wants to rule the world. But most people are afraid to say so.

The End Of American Apparel Is Quite Possibly Near... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

Who Will Save American Apparel?

American Apparel is apparently in some deep financial trouble. The retailer has suffered substantial operating losses and, according to Gawker, is $91 million in debt! Execs are engaged in a restructuring deal at the moment, but even the company admitted this is really, really bad, explaining in a public statement, “There can be no assurance that if either or both of these events [restructuring deals] were to take place, that the company would be able to obtain the additional sources of liquidity required to continue operations.” What? Potential shutdown?! What happened to you guys? We thought AA was the shopping emporium of the cool kids. Does this mean hipsters are now spending elsewhere? A few ideas as to why American Apparel may be tanking:

  • Because AA produces clothes that people don’t wear or buy (see: crop tops for men, shiny gold thong leotards, butt-less tights).

  • Hipsters have abandoned Dov Charney as their God and now worship Walmart.

  • Too much money has been spent on settling Dov Charney’s sexual harassment lawsuits.

So, if American Apparel goes out of business, does that mean the hipster era might come to an end?

Wait, that can't happen! Where would we get our V-neck T-shirts and colorful briefs? Who's going to make our sexy, provocative advertisements? Who's going to employ all the over-educated kids who want start bands and fashion labels and performance art galleries? Who will we make fun of? Dov, you must save yourself. We beg you!

McDonald's: The XXX Version

If there is a staple in the fast food universe when you’re attempting to feed your children while on the run or just plain out of ideas, it would absolutely have to be McDonald’s Happy Meals. The prospect of a relatively wholesome and healthy meal (more so of late with the inclusion of apples and apple juice) coming directly to your little one in a busy bag with the excitement of a toy, is nigh impossible to ignore. And even more than that is the price. It’s just an all round convenient way to eat. Ah, but as it seems, McDonald’s has hired some questionable talent to write the quips and funny one-liners for its boxes.

The most recent addition to the classic Happy Meal box is the newest one promoting the third Shrek sequel arriving in theaters this summer. As with all the packages through the years, the box is colorful and emblazoned with the characters directly from the movie that you can pop out and use as paper dolls. It’s fun! But therein lies the insidious and egregious grammatical sentence structure error. This is such an Epic Fail that I’m nearly speechless and its stupidity. Check this out:
