Lindsay Lohan - I Don't Need Prison or Rehab



Lindsay Lohan says doesn't see why she should "have to go to prison" or rehab -- but of course that'll be up to the judge when/if Lindsay shows up in court today.


In an interview shot on Sunday, Lindsay also talked about her alcohol ed classes (she thinks she's in compliance), and seemed non-chalant about her progress hearing -- though sources tell us Lindsay's pretty freaked out.

Oh, and wait till you hear the story behind that photo in Cannes.

The Real Reason Miss Tila Is Going To Rehab



Hey everyone!

I just wanted to let all of you know that I love my TIla Army Very much, and I was in denial for a long time but it takes a brave and strong woman to not only admit to herself that she has a problem, but also let the whole world know about it. It almost feels like I’m stripped down totally naked and standing in front of a million people. With that said,

Australia's Next Top Model tells underweight model she's too fat

POPULAR reality show Australia's Next Top Model has come under fire for telling a skinny teenager she needs to shed weight.



At 55kg, Melbourne's Alison Boxer is underweight, according to the universally recognised Body Mass Index.

But that's not good enough for a guest mentor on the latest series of the Fox8 show.

Alison, 16, said she was told to lose "centimetres from her thighs".


"It was a shock to the system to be told I needed to lose weight," she said.

"At home a lot of people say I'm too skinny. I was 50kg at one stage, which I thought was a bit scary.

"So I was coming from a place where people were telling me to gain weight, to now people saying I should lose weight."

NEW "Nightline" Clip: Jesse James, "I Wanted to Get Caught."

Mods, this is a new clip from the Jesse James interview. All the previous posts have not shown this one.

Jesse James Breaks Silence To ABC News: “I Wanted To Get Caught”

While Sandra Bullock took her story to People magazine last month – and revealed she would divorce Jesse James after his infidelity came to light, and also had adopted a baby boy – her husband went to ABC News for his first comments on the matter.

ABC is taking its time rolling out the big get, with the first clip released today.
 

Vicki Mabrey conducted the exclusive interview for Nightline, but Mabrey was on Good Morning America to preview the sit-down today with a two-minute clip. She’ll be back on tomorrow with more of the interview, and then it airs in full tomorrow night on Nightline. For those Lost fans, you got a preview during the finale, as promos aired last night as they have throughout the weekend.
 

As for the content, James was remorseful. “The last person I would ever want to harm is her, and the kids,” he said.
 

Mabrey seemed to keep his feet to the fire. “That’s the million dollar question: you had the perfect life, you had the perfect wife. why did you throw it away?”
 

Said James:

I don’t know. During the midst of all it, when I was doing it, one, I knew it was horrible, it made me feel horrible and two I knew I would get caught eventually and I think I wanted to get caught.


Mabrey said James “knows 100% that she’s going to divorce him,” but wanted to speak out now to clear the air on a few other side stories, like those Nazi photos. Also from the ABCNews.com story, we know “at one point in the interview, James teared up and asked Mabrey for a moment to collect himself.
 

ABC is getting a lot of mileage out of this exclusive, as any network would. The ratings for Nightline could be huge tomorrow, as the crossover appeal of the story – the People magazine crowd as well as news junkies – will tune in in droves. This comes as the program continues to tighten the gap with first place Jay Leno in the late-night race.

Biebus on his way to total WORLD DOMINATION

Bieber Builds Avid Latin American Fan Base Via Web
By Leila Cobo
MIAMI (Billboard) - Earlier this year, before a single Justin Bieber album had been released in Latin America , the teen star from Ontario, Canada, was already an Internet sensation south of the border.

"I remember getting a call from Island Def Jam saying Brazil was the No. 2 country after the U.S. with YouTube hits for Justin Bieber," says Gabriela Carrilho, vice president of international marketing for Universal Music Latin America.

By now, it's clear that Biebermania knows no boundaries in terms of language or ethnicity. But in Latin America, Bieber's rise has been swift and region-wide despite the fact that he has yet to set foot in any Latin country and has done only one interview with the local press (for Brazilian magazine Epoca).

The success highlights the Web's tremendous -- and often untapped -- potential for developing acts in the region.

"Bieber is real proof that the way kids are listening to music these days is different from five years ago or maybe even two or three years ago," Carrilho says, noting that Bieber was a Latin American phenomenon not only before the album's release but also before the label did any radio promotion.

As of May 14, Bieber's album "My Worlds" -- an international release that combines "My World" and "My World 2.0" -- was the top-selling album in Mexico and Colombia and No. 2 in Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela, only weeks after its March 22 release. With the exception of Mexico, which released "My World" earlier this year, this is the first and only Bieber album to come out in Latin America.

Country singer Chely Wright will make her first big splash as a gay star since coming out recently by performing at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in San Francisco, California next month.

The Single White Female singer will join Sam Sparro on the bill at the annual prize giving, which will honour Cybill Shepherd and Precious director Lee Daniels.

Actress Shepherd will receive the Golden Gate Award and Daniels will receive the Davidson/Valentini Award at the 21st annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Shepherd's honour will be a family affair - her daughters Clementine Ford and Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim will present their mother with her award, which is presented to media professionals who, through their work, have "increased the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community."

Bee Gees star goes 'crazy' at airport



Robin Gibb shocked onlookers at Heathrow Airport in London on Sunday when he allegedly hurled expletives at staff and refused to board a plane bound for Los Angeles over a security issue.

The Bee Gees star was randomly selected for an extra security check and reportedly fumed at British Airways employees before storming out of

the pre-check-in.


A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "He went absolutely crazy and was swearing his head off at the check-in team. It wasn't their fault - people are selected at random by the computer for extra checks. But he wasn't having any of it.

"He was told by security to calm down or he would not be able to fly. He told them to eff off. When it became clear to him he would not board without the extra checks he stormed out. He was spitting feathers and everyone in the lounge was horrified".

A spokesperson for British Airways says, "A passenger who was due to fly to L.A. voluntarily chose not to travel because they did not want to be subjected to additional security searches."

It's not the first time Gibb has fallen foul of airline security staff - in 2008 he missed a flight to Las Vegas after reportedly refusing to let officials search his bag at a London airport.

Blind Item Time

1. This C list actress daughter of a former male A list celebrity (now B) and a former B list actress (now a D) was found in a bathroom the other night passed out after trying h*roin for the first time.

Collapse )

2. This celebrity is moving to a place thousands of miles away from where she lives now. Her motives are rather suspicious. Is the new location closer to her workplace? No. Closer to her family? No. Better weather? No. She claims it is just because she found a locale that she and her husband like. The real reason, though, is to get herself and her child/ren as far away from her Mother as possible. The celeb finally has enough presence of mind – and more than enough money – to lead a life different from the one that was set up for her. She won’t be hounded or controlled anymore by her Mother, her Mother’s attorneys, etc. Mom will act like she is heartbroken that her daughter and grandchild/ren are moving, but she is actually panicking. She found out that her little girl is writing her autobiography… a book that will make “Mommie Dearest” look like a day at the beach.

Collapse )

3. There are rumors swirling within the inner circle of this celebrity about her secret past. We all know about her rags to riches story, but what we don’t know is that she lived the life of pr*stitution for two years to get by. Not Oprah Winfrey.

Collapse )

4. Prior to the airing of the Lost series finale, there was a two hour-special on the making of Lost. It featured a plot summary, show clips, show runners patting themselves on the back, and lots of glowing accolades from the cast about how amazing and ground-breaking the series was. Well, that’s how they described it for the cameras, anyhow. One cast member had less glowing things to say when the camera wasn’t rolling. Specifically, that even the cast members didn’t understand the convoluted plot. This particular actor never had any idea whether s/he was “filming a scene of a flash back, a flash forward, a flash sideways.” This same actor did not like the ending at all. S/he said that it “f*ing sucked. What a joke.” S/he also joked that s/he might avoid public appearances for a while in case some fan who felt robbed at the ending wanted to throw a punch their way.

Joss Whedon Interview about Glee

New Interview with Joss Whedon. Mostly talks about his experience directing Glee. No Avengers updates.



What was it like directing someone else’s show? Can you give us … an update on your Avenger’s victory ride?

Whedon- I can’t give you any updates. This is purely a Glee call. Directing somebody else’s show is – I’ve done it once before, twice just with The Office. It helps if the show’s unutterably wonderful. That takes a lot of the pressure off. It’s a little tricky. You’re living in somebody else’s house and you have to make sure that you’re fulfilling their needs. It also takes some of the burden off you. You don’t have to be the guy who sees the big picture. You just take what they give you and make sure that you’re servicing it as best you can. Having said that, Glee is probably harder to shoot than any other show in recorded history, with all the different elements going on and whatnot; it’s a different kind of challenge, but ultimately enormous fun.

"Is 'everyone' in the fifth grade REALLY watching 'Glee'?"



NEW YORK — "OK," went the e-mail that circulated among parents recently at a New York City elementary school. "Is 'everyone' in the fifth grade REALLY watching 'Glee'?"

A discussion ensued: To Glee or not to Glee?

At issue wasn't the quality of the hugely popular Fox series about a high school glee club, which in just its first season has won a Golden Globe, seen its cast perform at the White House, launched a national concert tour, and is, to hear many tell it, approaching the status of a mini-pop culture phenomenon.

The question, rather: Is "Glee" just too racy for the tweens who love it?

It's a dilemma, and not just because it's hard to fight with one's offspring. "Glee," which kids love for its infectious musical numbers — a few critics call them overproduced or sloppily lip-synched, but let's not be grumpy about it, because "Glee" is the very antithesis of grump — has an upbeat, inclusive message that recalls the "High School Musical" films.

But this ain't no "High School Musical." For where those rosy-cheeked Disney Channel films barely contained a kiss on the lips, "Glee" has sex. And teen pregnancy. It tackles issues of homosexuality and losing one's virginity, and one scene showed a character, well, ejaculating in a hot tub.

So what's a parent of a tween "gleek" — as fans call themselves — to do?

Jesse James opens up about his sad life

One of the most famous cheaters in the world Jesse James has decided to speak about his doucheness on TV. This is a small fragment from GMA interview, it's going to air in full next Tuesday.

He says: "I took a pretty amazing life and marriage and threw it away." Yeah, you're right, man.



I am dumb and can't embed the video, you can watch it here - vid.


// I'm ashamed to admit, that I felt sorry for him when he teared up. Maybe it's because I don't think cheating is such a big deal. Although the way Jesse did it, was major ~wrong.

Ok, I'll add to this ~cheating opinion~ I so carelessly displaced here. It was wrong way of putting it, I really do think cheating (as in lying, doing things behind your back, disrespecting) is wrong period. I do think though that cheating (as in sleeping with other people) is not that bad. But of course, this is my opinion now, I understand that later in life that may change. The same with people who disagree with me now. It's not something like domestic violence, that should be condemned by society regardless of context.

The Roots revamp a Monsters of Folk song.




"Dear God" was a slow-burning highlight from the 2009 self-tiled LP from Monsters of Folk (aka Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, and M.Ward). "Dear God 2.0" is a slow-burning remake of the track by the Roots that will be included on their forthcoming LP How I got Over James' lofty vocals are consistent but the beat is overhauled and a couple characteristically wary verses from Roots rapper Black Thought are added. According to a press release, Oberst, Mogis, and Ward also contributed to the revamp.

How I Got Over-- which features guest shots from Joanna Newsom, members of Dirty Projectors, John Legend, and others-- is out June 22 on Def Jam

Mr. Eko you ho - Mr. Eko Turned Down Finale Guest Spot!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Why didn't Mr. Eko come back?

It's one of the most asked questions about Lost's final season. After all, everyone else returned! So what gives?

Sources tell me exclusively:

Lost's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje--who played the iconic Mr. Eko--was offered a guest spot in last night's Lost series finale, but he...wait for it...turned it down.

According to ABC and Lost insiders, Adewale was offered a hearty sum to do one scene in the last hurrah, but the actor wanted five times the amount that was offered. It didn't work out.

How and where would Adewale have popped up in the finale? I guess we'll never know, but he was definitely loved by many fans before his character's demise.

Eko (a warlord who pretended to be a priest in order to smuggle drugs) was the fifth character to die on Lost, after facing the Smoke Monster for a second time and getting attacked, and then telling Locke, "I saw the devil."

Producers have said their original plan was for Mr. Eko to stay on the show four seasons, but they released Adewale from his contract after only one season because he wanted off the Island.

"A Time to Kill" Heading to Broadway

A Time to Kill: Grisham's 1st novel coming to Broadway




The Washington based Arena Stage (temporarily based at Arlington, VA) have announced that they will present the pre-Broadway world premiere of John Grisham's first novel A Time to Kill as part of their 2010/11 season, playing at their new permanent home, The Mead Center for American Theater, from 6 May - 19 Jun 2010.
 

There has been no announcement as to when the play will arrive on Broadway.
 

Grisham's 1989 novel has been adapted for the stage by Tony Award-winner Rupert Holmes (Drood) and presented by special arrangement with New York producer Daryl Roth.

The Arena's synopsis for A Time to Kill says, "After an unspeakable crime is committed against his daughter, Carl Lee Hailey takes the law into his own hands. Now on trial for murder, Carl Lee’s only hope lies with two young, idealistic lawyers who are outmatched by a formidable district attorney and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city. A Time to Kill asks audiences to consider the true meaning of justice."

Grisham is a popular author of legal thrillers: 'TheTestament,' 'The Lawyer,' 'Pelican Brief' etc, and his books have sold over 250 million copies worldwide. His novels are regularly adapted into screen plays - but 'A Time to Kill' will be the first stage-adaptation of one of the acclaimed author's works. The 1996 film adaptation of 'A Time to Kill,' adapted by Akiva Goldsman and directed by Joel Schumacher, starred Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Ashley Judd and Kiefer Sutherland. The film was a commercial success and raised $110 million at the USA box office.

Rupert Holmes won Tony Award's for his musical 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' (score, lyrics and book), and 'Curtains' (Book).

Here's the fabulous film trailer, which I still think is one of the best trailers ever made, especially because of Samuel L Jackson's last line:

A Post About Actual Interesting and Relevant Series That End Tonight

These Are Their Stories

The pleasing again-and-again of Law & Order



I have this friend who, whenever he’s walking around Manhattan, having oblivious scraps of sidewalk conversation, half-assumes he will trip over a corpse.

That’s what happens when a show films hundreds of nearly identical episodes in your city. It invades your brain. It makes you feel like an extra, but in a good way. And now that Law & Order is canceled, after 456 episodes—most of which I watched in fugue-state binges during a particularly exhausted period in my last pregnancy—it’s the little things I’ll miss. The educational opening narration: “In the criminal-justice system … ” The unspellable ka-chung. The fact that no one being questioned by the detectives ever stopped chopping pork or sculpting avant-garde clay statues to talk about their dead friend, because that’s how busy New Yorkers are.

The Enduring Legacy of '24'



"The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones."
–Mark Anthony, Act III, Scene ii, Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare

24 is the most influential TV drama of all time. There isn't even a close second. No other series—not The Sopranos, The Wire, Hill Street Blues, or ER, has had a tenth of the cultural impact (WTF is this dude on?!). There simply has never been another protagonist as loved and hated as Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer—lambasted by a Brigadier General and defended by a Supreme Court judge. There has never been another television show that so profoundly and directly influenced how this nation fights a war, and discussing the significance of 24 without mentioning the political debates that swirled around the show is practically impossible.

Oh yeah and some dude named Jack White is there too

On the occasion of her debut album's release, Karen Elson and Jack White agreed to be photographed together for the first time. She wore charming vintage-look dresses. (He wore a top hat.)



By Jonathan Van Meter. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

On a very rainy, very London kind of morning in Manhattan, Karen Elson, a spidery vision in a peach gossamer shrug and black leggings, is sitting in the Breslin at the Ace Hotel, drinking strong coffee and eating buttered toast. "I'm really English," she says, almost apologetically. "I don't like the crust." She was kept up last night by guests partying in the room next door, but she is not complaining, because that is not her style. Besides, when she is in New York, where she lived for ten years, Elson prefers a groovy vibe. "At some hotels," she says, "I feel like I have to be dressed to the nines—perfectly eccentric—to walk out the door. This place feels like home."

Orlando Bloom Turns Evil for 'Three Musketeers'

Orlando Bloom, whose last major role was as a swashbuckling hero in 2007's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End,' will segue to the dark side as the dastardly Duke of Buckingham, the British nemesis of D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis in Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D version of 'The Three Musketeers.'

British actor James Corden has also joined the ensemble cast of the Summit Entertainment film, which will shoot late this summer for a summer 2011 release, according to HeatVision.

The cast for this latest adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas novel now includes Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu, Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan, Matthew MacFadyen as Athos, Ray Stevenson as Porthos, Luke Evans as Aramis, Milla Jovovich as M'lady De Winter and Mads Mikkelsen as the Count of Rochefort. Corden, who starred in the British TV series 'Gavin and Stacey,' will play D'Artagnan's servant, Planchet. In addition, British actress Juno Temple is in negotiations to play the Queen Consort of France, Anne of Austria.

YYYYYEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!



It's the shocking season finale of "CSI: Miami" that will have viewers guessing who lives and who dies -- ET has a sneak peek right here.

"Someone appears to be very angry with our team and they are determined to prevent us from doing what we need to do," series star David Caruso tells ET, revealing that the fate of the team hangs in the balance. "The season ends in a cliff-hanger. Someone has attacked the lab and most all of us are rendered unconscious."

He adds somberly: "We're not sure what's going to happen. We're not sure who is going to survive. This is a very dangerous moment."

He also lets slip the deadly agent used to attack the team, saying, "They poison the facility ... they have come here to try and execute the entire team."

"CSI: Miami" airs tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS.

Vatican City .- Thanks to programs that produce about teenage pregnancy and its difficulties, the television channel MTV was praised by the Vatican, he called a "positive surprise" this transmission in a chain known for its liberalism.

Through an article published on the front page of today's edition of the newspaper "L'Osservatore Romano, the apostolic stressed that the new MTV programs tell the stories of young women who become pregnant and decide to have their children.

Oh for fuck's sake. I'm betting the Vatican hasn't seen Jenelle's episode. Or ANY episode for that matter. Abortion sucks, there is no doubt about. Contrary to belief, no one is praising it. But deciding to keep the baby =/= good decision, in a lot of cases. With the exception of Maci, Kail, Lori, Catelynn, and possibly Whitney and Valerie and maaaybe Samantha (I'm not so sure on her because as sweet and devoted as she is, she's pretty clueless, tbh), these girls are most likely doomed and had no business having kids to begin with. If you're against abortion, fine. But don't act like it's a fucking victory when someone decides against getting one, because's the aftermath is RARELY a fairy tale. And even if is, that's not taking account of all the stresses of being that young and raising a child. So, fuck you Vatican.

Dominic Cooper to Play Young Howard Stark in 'Captain America'?



If you saw Iron Man 2 (and it sounds like most of you did), you are now aware that Howard Stark isn't just a footnote of Tony Stark's backstory, but a character who is going to play a part in the history of the Marvel movieverse. You're going to see him again in Captain America: The First Avenger, but as of now we don't know who will play him? Many fans were hoping John Slattery would be reprising the role, though word is now spreading that Dominic Cooper is apparently in the running for the part.

"Kites" first Bolllywood movie to crack US Top 10!

‘Smoking’ Hrithik Roshan Wows U.S. Critics



Bollywood scored big this weekend in Hollywood. The first triumph was a fluke, but the second triumph might herald the birth of a crossover Indian superstar.

For the first time, an Indian movie broke the weekly top 10 grossing films in the U.S. The metric is widely tracked across the U.S., and “Kites” managed to crack the list. Now, that achievement should come with a huge asterisk.

With a gross of just over $1 million, “Kites” wouldn’t have cracked the top 10 list in any other week of this year. The film certainly benefited from a rare, exceptionally weak May week in the US. Though some analysts question how much leg the movie has, the worldwide take for opening weekend was almost $14 million, with the majority of that from India.

The second triumph though, maybe a longer lasting one. Hrithik Roshan wowed U.S. reviewers. The Los Angeles Times called him “a sensational dancer” with “the dashing, chiseled looks of a silent movie matinee idol.” The Toronto Star also found Mr. Roshan’s body “chiseled” with “sculpted features.” The New York Times used words rarely uttered in the Grey Lady noting Mr. Roshan had a “smoking body.” The Village Voice said, “Roshan is a master at low-keying his enormous charm and shrugging off his blinding handsomeness.” The San Francisco Chronicle called him and his co-star, Barbara Mori, “as beautiful human beings as can be.”

It would be tough to find another actor who has recently sent critics weak in the knees like this. The Times ends its review praising Roshan: “Mr. Roshan requires viewing uncut: writhing on the dance floor or just gazing into space, the man was made to drive women crazy, one movie at a time.”

Mr. Roshan may or may not be a gifted thespian, but he possesses all the ingredients of a movie star heartthrob — drop dead gorgeous looks, smoldering eyes and a natural charm. With dozens of Hindi movies under his belt, thanks in part to his producer father, Mr. Roshan is at ease with the camera. “Kites” may not end up being the first Bollywood crossover hit, but Mr. Roshan’s looks, it seems, might just help him do what no Bollywood actor has yet done — conquer Hollywood, one movie at a time.

This supposedly Hindi movie is an epic romance... except it barely has any Hindi in it, and is completely accessible to Western audiences. If you've ever had the slightest inclination to see a Bollywood movie, this is a GREAT introductory piece. I absolutely loved it.

'Lost' Series Finale Theories: Searching for Explanations and Answers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


'Lost's' finale, like the rest of the series, was a Rorschach test. What you think it means says more about you than it does about what 'Lost' masterminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse actually put on the screen. Even after they'd given viewers some definitive answers, so many questions remained. Which isn't necessarily bad; the lack of resolution means we'll be able to continue to play the parlor game of deciphering 'Lost's' riddles, anagrams and puzzles for years to come as we watch the reruns.

Still, if the finale didn't explain all the show's mysteries, it resolved enough of them to provide audiences with a satisfying catharsis -- satisfying both for the explanations provided to us and for the emotional closure given to characters who'd sought it for years.

Here's what we finally know -- and what we know about what we don't know.

Dorothy Kamenshek, Inspiration for League of Their Own Character, Dies at Age 84

s-LEAGUE-OF-THEIR-OWN-DOROTHY-KAMENSHEK-large

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) -- A former star of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League who helped inspire the lead character in the movie "A League of their Own" has died.

The Riverside County (Calif.) coroner said Friday that Dorothy Kamenshek died of natural causes Monday at her home in Palm Desert, Calif. She was 84.

Kamenshek played for the Rockford Peaches from 1943 to 1953. The left-handed infielder was named in the top 100 female athletes of the century by Sports Illustrated.

The Ohio native, who also went by the names Dottie and Kammie, was among the players who were the basis for Dottie Hinson, a character played by Geena Davis in the 1992 movie about women's professional baseball in the 1940s.

Demi Lovato Confirms Break-Up, Joe Confirms that he was the one who broke it off

From her twitter:

There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. I'd like to clear a few things up. First, Joe and I did split but it wasn't over the phone. Things didn't work out but we'll remain friends. Secondly, I am NOT dating anybody already. Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans.. Just thought you guys should know this.


ETA: Joe comments on the breakup--

"Demi and I knew going into our romantic relationship that it may not be an easy one," Jonas, 20, tells PEOPLE. "I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to break up but I love her as a friend. She's been there for me when I needed her. I will continue to be her friend and be there for her."

Christina Aguilera Postpones Summer Tour

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Christina Aguilera, who was set to tour in support of her highly anticipated new album "Bionic" alongside Leona Lewis, has pushed back the tour a year. In a statement from Live Nation, Aguilera announced the summer tour has been moved to 2011 due to prior commitments she had to make for promoting the album, set to hit stores June 4 and her upcoming film debut, "Burlesque," which is slated for a November release and co-stars Cher. 

"The singer felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour date this wasn’t possible," the statement read. 

New dates will be announced later this year.

Refunds for tickets to Aguilera’s Aug. 19 show at  Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine are available at point of purchase. Aguilera is slated to perform at the MTV Movie Awards on June 6.

Abc Chiefs Giving Ghost Whisperer A Lifeline


JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT's spooky TV series GHOST WHISPERER has been brought back from the dead - TV executives at ABC have given the show a lifeline.

The long-running drama was axed last week (ends21May10) as part of a sweep by executives at CBS.

But Hewitt's co-star and ex-boyfriend Jamie Kennedy has revealed there is still "life" in the programme after ABC chiefs expressed interest in picking up Ghost Whisperer for its future schedule.

He says, "They are talking about it, so that's cool. We haven't exactly gone into the light, we haven't crossed over, but we've got some life."

Ghost Whisperer premiered in 2005.

Awards Watch: Emmy Roundtable -- Drama Actors
By Matthew Belloni

"Who canceled that got me here?" Ray Romano joked as the first of The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable series began. Humor dominated the hourlong discussion in a penthouse at the Chateau Marmont, during which the drama panel poked fun at their wives, declared themselves narcissistic and told a major TV critic to "suck it."

The Hollywood Reporter: When you guys watch your performances, what do you criticize most?

Matthew Fox: I don't (watch). Never. I'm a fan of the show and I watched early on because I wanted to see how it was put together. But I don't find any benefit in seeing what I'm doing.

THR: How about the others? Do you watch your shows?

Matt Bomer: Sometimes. You want to see the character come to life in an authentic way and hope you're not mugging or being inorganic.

Alexander Skarsgard: I watch it and I'm blown away by my own performance! (Laughs.) No, every single scene, I'm like, "Oh man, way too big. That look is so redundant. Again with that flat delivery?" I really don't enjoy it.

THR: Yet you keep coming back.

Skarsgard:
I do. I'm like a drug to myself. (Laughs.) I did movies in Sweden before I came over here, and I would never watch dailies because I didn't want to see myself in the character. But that obviously had to change (on a series) because I couldn't wait seven years until the show's over to go back and watch it. I still don't watch the monitors; but when the season airs, I do watch it.

Jon Hamm:
We don't have playback on our show, but watching playback is a whole different experience because you're right there and you're like, "Ah, I can't watch it. I wanted to do something else, it's not coming through." Watching a complete version of the show, you're far enough away that you can feel separated enough to sit and enjoy it.

Demi Lovato Leans on Wilmer Valderrama After Joe Jonas Split


That was fast! Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas have called it quits, but Demi may already be moving on to a new man.

Just last week, Joe told E! News how excited he was to have his then-girlfriend join him on tour this summer.

But a source confirms that the Disney twosome have indeed split and that Demi's been in constant contact with Wilmer Valderrama, who she worked with when they shot PSAs together in January and March.

Apparently, the two have kept in touch since then...

"She complained about Joe to him a lot," a source tells E! News. "Now they're talking and dating."

(Wilmer is 30 and Demi is 17. Just sayin'.)

But the show must go on for Demi and Joe, who are scheduled to tour together this summer for Camp Jonas. They both performed Friday on Good Morning America.

Regarding the breakup, Joe's rep told E!: "We don't comment on our clients' personal lives".

And according to various other outlets, the breakup was done by Joe over the phone.

Demi and Wilmer's reps have not yet returned E!'s request for comment, but Demi did update her Twitter yesterday with the following:

"After the week I've had, I can PROMISE you I will KILL this show tonight...Get ready for one intense concert."

Major Lazer, La Roux Team for Mixtape





Diplo knows a couple of things about making mixtapes with female pop singers. Back in 2004, he and M.I.A. put together the now-classic Piracy Funds Terrorism, Vol. 1. Then, in 2008, he collaborated with Santigold on the Top Ranking mixtape. And now La Roux, the British electro-pop duo led by Elly Jackson, has hooked up with Major Lazer, the dancehall-freaking duo of Diplo and Switch, to record a mixtape of their very own, entitled Lazerproof. Diplo's Mad Decent label will release the tape for free download on May 26-- this Wednesday.

Diplo and Switch put the tape together on a recent trip to Jamaica, and it features appearances from Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko, and Amanda Blank (though the Drake and Gucci verses aren't new). Collapse )

WUT IS THIS FUCKERY?

According to a personal assistant, that called into a Cincinnati radio show (wtf?), Joe Jonas might be a father to twins and one Jobro has a drug problem.




The radio show said this about the allegations:

"A woman claming to work for the Jonas Brothers text us saying that the guys weren't everything they were cracked up to be. She went on to tell us some pretty scandalous things.

Her number was a 310 area code, which is Los Angeles, California. She claimed that she was a personal assistant to the Jonas Brothers.

Obviously, we have no way of knowing if she was telling the truth or not.

Lauryn Hill to headline this year's Rock the Bells Festival


The tour that Nas built just got an old time collabo partner to be the first female to headline in the show's history....

The official press conference isn’t until, but we’re ready to call this one like FOX News. Hip-hop enigma Lauryn Hill will be headlining this year’s Rock The Bells tour. The ex-Fugees songstress will be performing her classic solo album, The Miseduction of Lauryn Hill, as part of a complete album format that has become an increasingly popular way for legendary acts to draw attention to current tours. Also rumored to be performing a full-length at RTB2010 is A Tribe Called Quest. Perhaps they’ll join Ms. Hill in a rendition of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” The Fugees’ most infamous hit, which sampled ATCQ’s “Bonita Applebum.”

URB spoke to representative of Rock The Bells who would not confirm…or deny the booking. The official Rock the Bells press conference takes place tonight at The Key Club in West Hollywood.

Kelis Talks bb Knight


Kelis would rather her son became an architect than a pop star.

The 'Milkshake' singer is amazed at how much musical ability 10-month-old Knight - her child with ex-husband Nas - is already showing and though she would encourage him to embrace his talents, she would prefer him to have a career away from the spotlight.

She said: "I look at him now and there's no way you can deny he's musically inclined. I don't think he can help it.
"So with him is it my ideal choice? No, I would much rather he was a marine biologist or an architect but if he's naturally good at this I would be doing him a disservice not to help him. But I'm not going to be a stage mom, pushing him in front of the camera!

"It has to be not that he wants to be a pop star but, in a way, because he can't do anything else."

The 29-year-old star also admitted she doesn't think she is "the best artist ever" but has faith in her own abilities.

She added to Popjustice: "I'm not delusional, I mean, I don't have delusions of grandeur in that I don't think I'm the best artist ever. I don't! I know I'm the only me there is, but it's more that the artists I fell in love with as a teenager to where I am now have never necessarily had the sonically perfect voice, but they're always the person I believe. I had to do this because I couldn't think of anything else."

<333333 so beautiful. not the best artist ever my ass. Queen Kelis. Prince Knight the architect. The National Bank of Nas. As it should be.
