The MOST Successful Female Artist of All Time, Living Legend Marks Milestone

 20/20 'Vision': Mariah Marks Milestone

Twenty years ago today, Mariah Carey wrote the first chapter in what has become one of the most exceptional Billboard chart discographies.

Carey's debut single, "Vision of Love," entered the Billboard Hot 100, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Adult Contemporary in the issue dated June 2, 1990. The song would become her first of 18 Hot 100 No. 1s, the most among solo artists in the chart's 52-year history. Among all acts, only the Beatles, with 20, have more No. 1s.

In addition to her historic No. 1 total on the Hot 100, Carey has tallied 15 toppers on Dance/Club Play Songs, 11 on Radio Songs and 10 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Carey's career U.S. album sales stand at 52.6 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which began tracking sales data a year after her arrival. In that span, only Garth Brooks (68.4 million) and the Beatles (60.9 million) rank higher. Carey has sent six albums to the Billboard 200 summit, including her best-selling set, 1995's "Daydream" (7.6 million).

"Daydream" yielded the 16-week Hot 100 No. 1 "One Sweet Day," with Boyz II Men, marking the longest reign by any title in the chart's history. The ballad subsequently earned the honor of Billboard's top song of the '90s. Carey's 2005 14-week Hot 100 No. 1 "We Belong Together" likewise became the chart's top title of the 2000s.

Here is a look at some of Mariah Carey's most notable achievements, by the numbers, from her first 20 years of gracing Billboard surveys.

9 Movies That Made It Okay For a Dude to Cry

There are several characteristics or traits that separate the men from the boys (besides a massive set of yam-bags). One of those characteristics is the ability to keep their emotions in check. At an early age, guys are taught that crying is reserved only for the wussies and ladies. It’s just not true. Kind of like the belief that masturbating too frequently will lead to blindness (extensive personal research has proven otherwise–I’m writing this article aren’t I?). It’s fine for a man to let out some emotion once in while in the form of salty tears.
A violent groin shot. The passing of a sports hero. Running out of propane in the middle of a BBQ. All acceptable reasons for a man to shed some tears. Add movies to that list of permissions. Real, heart-tugging guy flicks where something sucky happens to a beloved character. It’s more than acceptable for a man to let out a little whimper and some tears of sadness.

The following, in no particular order, is a list of some tear-inducing flicks where it’s fine for a guy to weep.

Coronation Street taken off air following Cumbria killings

British soap postponed without notice after current story line is "too similar" to Wednesday's mass murder spree in Cumbria
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A further episode of Coronation Street has been postponed following the Cumbrian shootings, ITV has announced. It is the second night running in which the soap has been pulled from the schedule as a result of the killings.

The soap had been due to feature a siege involving guns, resulting in two characters dying after Tony Gordon escapes from jail. ITV said the move was taken in light of Wednesday's "tragic events in Cumbria" where a gunman shot 12 people dead.

The network said revised episode dates and times would be announced later. On Wednesday night the episode was replaced with Harry Hill's TV Burp.

Coronation Street had been scheduled to broadcast six episodes, instead of the usual five, throughout the week as the plot unfolded on screen.

The episodes of the soap took four weeks to film and used a purpose-built set.

Ghost Whisperer/JLH news

No Afterlife At ABC!!

Jennifer Love Hewitt is back on the market!

Though it was long understood that ABC could pick up “Ghost Whisperer” if CBS dropped it, CBS cancelled it last week and now the series' executive producers, Ian Sander and Kim Moses, say it has truly joined the choir invisible:

After five wonderful seasons and over 100 episodes, we are disappointed to announce Ghost Whisperer will not be returning for a sixth season. We’ve had an incredible experience and owe a debt of gratitude to everyone involved. We continue our relationship with ABC Studios and look forward to developing many more successful projects together in the future.

There was also talk that CBS’ just-cancelled “New Adventures of Old Christine” could move to ABC but that too does not seem to be happening.

And it also looks like basic cable’s TNT won’t be picking up a 21st season of the original “Law & Order,” which NBC cancelled last week.


Jennifer Love Hewitt Is Happy Being Single, but Is She Still Vajazzling?

Jennifer Love Hewitt is OK not having a boyfriend. Really, she is!

"My love life is just me, and I'm very happy about it," Hewitt, who split from boyfriend Jamie Kennedy in March after about a year of dating, told us earlier today at Kari Feinstein's MTV Movie Awards Style Lounge. "I've not done the single thing very much, as you know, and I'm happy to do it."

Does that mean she's no longer vajazzling south of the border?

"I vajazzle more for myself, so I have that secret sparkle that no one knows about," Hewitt teased. (For the record, Hewitt says she was not vajazzled when we spoke to her.)

As for Kathy Griffin's recent foray into decorating her lady parts, J.Love complained, "I'm a little upset that she did not say that it was my idea."

J.Love also told us she's hard at work on a follow-up book to The Day I Shot Cupid, her recent self-help guide to finding the right guy. "It's going to be about loving yourself," she explained. "I figured out in the last one I wrote a lot about how to get a man to fall in love with you but not very much about how, if you don't love yourself, that's not going to happen."

And now that Ghost Whisperer is dunzo, Hewitt may head to New York. "I'm looking at possible doing Broadway," she said. "To be able to sing and dance will be fun."

And what did Ms. Single Lady check out at the swag lounge? V Moda headphones, Infinity Sun tanning products, Isagenix health supplements and Britax's line of...baby strollers!

SKINS BACK AS A MOVIE (which we all knew)

THE original Skins dream team are going to be reunited on the big screen.

DEV PATEL and NICHOLAS HOULT have agreed to star in a movie version of the dark teen drama.

A spin-off film was discussed a year ago but fell through because the lads had other commitments. But now a window has been found and they've signed a contract with Cinema NX, Film4 and Company Pictures.

The TV series has pulled in more than a million viewers over the years and is one of E4's biggest hits.

A film sounds like a box office hit to me. A source said: "Even though Dev and Nic have grown up, they'll have no trouble reprising their mischievous roles."

I remember when Dev was leathered at a party and went round every girl commenting on their breasts.

He's settled with FREIDA PINTO now, so I bet he's delighted I remembered that.


not that he has anything better to do that he'd pass it up but i hope news on mitch isn't far behind AND JOE TOO EVEN THOUGH CHRIS IS DEAD AND MY HEART IS STILL ACHING

ps feel free to make this a skins party post, nothing would make me happier right now!

Jeremy Renner near deal to join Marvel's 'Avengers'

Jeremy Renner is in final negotiations to join "The Avengers," Marvel Studios' big-screen take on its superhero team that's being directed by Joss Whedon.

Renner will play the bow-and-arrow-carrying hero Hawkeye, who, while not one of the initial members of the team when it was created in the 1960s, became an integral member soon after when the misguided villain switched sides.

Renner will join Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Don Cheadle as War Machine.

The Hulk may also be a character in the movie, but at this stage, there is no deal that would bring back Ed Norton, who starred as the emerald giant in 2008's "The Incredible Hulk."

Khloe Kardashian Denies Pregnancy: “I’m Just Fat”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Two days before Christmas, MediaTakeOut declared that Khloe Kardashian was pregnant.

She wasn’t. Gossip Cop busted it.

This week, as excitement builds about the imminent fake birth of Kardashian’s first fake baby, RadarOnline decided to jump in the game, setting off a whole new wave of rumors with its “exclusive” report that Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom are now expecting.

According to the site, Kardashian is two months pregnant.

“Khloe was inspired by [sister] Kourtney having a baby,” explains a Radar “source” close to the family. Lamar is “happy and ecstatic,” as is the entire family, which is “elated by the news.”

Odom and the Kardashians are probably less than elated to have sites spreading speculation about a pregnancy — when it isn’t accurate.

At last night’s Los Angeles Lakers game, Kardashian rejected the rumor that she’s pregnant, claiming, “I’m just fat.” Her mom Kris Jenner and brother Rob Kardashian echoed the theme.

Miley Cyrus still bedding Liam, clears things up

Don't believe recent chatter suggesting that Miley Cyrus and her Aussie hunk have split due to his rising popularity and her supposed jealousy. According to Cyrus, that is so not the case.

"Just wanna clear up a rumor. Liam [Hemsworth] and I did not break. EVER! We are so happy and a lot of that has to do with the amazing relationship he has with my family," she writes on her Web Site.

The couple met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song, based on the Nicholas Sparks novel.  They attempted to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, but in March, Cyrus admitted that she and Hemsworth had been dating for 10 months.

Hemsworth, 20,  is currently in negotiations to star in the 3D action film Arabian Nights. And Cyrus's third album Can't Be Tamed drops June 22. With two demanding schedules and plenty of travel, no wonder rumors surface. But it's clear that family bonds help keep the couple in sync. "We are both so busy right now, so having them by our side supporting us and our career is such a blessing!" Cyrus writes.

The ice maiden within
Naomi Watts finds a career-defining role as an adoptee in Mother and Child.

Everyone knows there are hardly any decent movie roles for women, especially those over 40. Naomi Watts's current slate suggests that, at 41, she may be playing all of them.

Recently Watts was at the Cannes Film Festival to promote two new films: Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and Doug Liman's Fair Game, in which she plays the betrayed CIA agent Valerie Plame. There is a Jim Sheridan film in the works; next up, she will play Marilyn Monroe for Australian director Andrew Dominik.

All this, however, followed the role that may have proved something of a turning point in a relatively small film, Rodrigo Garcia's Mother and Child. Garcia, son of the Nobel Prize-winning Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, has written all his films for women; he says this simply comes naturally.

"Rodrigo isn't somebody who isn't fascinated by women, like a lot of great men," Watts says (Mother and Child's male stars include Samuel L. Jackson and Jimmy Smits). While his two previous films were omnibus collections of short stories - Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her and Nine Lives - Mother and Child is three women's stories whose lives have been touched by adoption in which Watts's Elizabeth, an icily ambitious lawyer, is a linchpin.

"From the first reading, I felt this really meant something," she says. "I just wish there were more Rodrigos."

Céline Dion is happy about morning sickness

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After everything Céline Dion went through trying to get pregnant again, a little morning sickness is nothing. In fact, it's great.

"The first two months I really felt the classical symptoms. The morning sickness, hot flashes, nausea," the singer, 42, tells the French magazine Paris Match in a new interview. "In a certain way, that reassured me, like a sign that my pregnancy was progressing. Now, everything is falling into place. I have a little belly. I've gained [10 lbs.]."

Dion confirms she's expecting twins in November, and says this sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilization was going to be her last if it hadn't worked. "We believed in trying one more time," she says. "If [the doctor] had told me that my body was too tired, I would have given up."

Instead, she's looking forward to two new babies – she'll learn their sex in another week – who will join big brother René-Charles, 9. It's been a while since they were new parents, but Dion and her husband and manager René Angélil plan on replicating the routines they had with their first child.

"We'll do the same thing we did with René-Charles, who stayed with us in our bedroom for the first year," says Dion.

The couple haven't picked out names yet but are making plenty of other plans. They won't use any nannies – "Too many people in the house disorient children," Dion says – but will call on Dion's sister Linda and her husband Alain for help. "My only task is to make my children happy," Dion says. "And too bad if the house sometimes becomes a mess."

One question: whether René-Charles might feel a bit jealous after enjoying all the attention as an only child for so long. But Dion is prepared for that, too. "We're sensitive enough to not be blinded by the marvel of the newborns," she says. "We have a deep relationship of nine and a half years with René-Charles, and I'll be able to see when he needs me."


Roxy Olin is Not an Olivia Palermo Fan

In the we-knew-it-all-along category: Olivia Palermo is as imperious as she seems. So says Roxy Olin, of MTV's "The City."

"Olivia is like that or even worse," Roxy tells Zap2it. "I don't know where the entitlement came from. I was raised with no matter what job you have, you treat everyone equal.
"My mom (Patricia Wettig of "Brothers & Sisters") is from Nowheresville and earned every penny, so every penny counts. Olivia acts so privileged. Have you even earned it? I can't comprehend it, even if you are so rich or so out there."

"It's so cutthroat in the fashion world, why take yourself that seriously?" she wonders. "What do you gain from it? It must be really lonely for Olivia. Don't you want to be involved and have someone to talk to? I guess she makes good TV. Maybe she will look at herself and say, 'I look like an idiot'."

"The City" can be a tough place to work. "There are things that get really hard for me. Emotionally, it takes a lot out of you because your name is on the bottom of the screen. Even if it isn't 100 percent reality or 100 percent the truth, it's always an extension of who you are. So when you watch it, the anxiety is different than the anxiety of a performance."

Still, Olin enjoys her role on the MTV series. "At the end of the day, it is Whitney [Port's] show. She knows every single person's name we work with. She goes out to lunch with everyone."

Keira Knightley harassment case ended

The trial of a man charged with harassing actress Keira Knightley has collapsed because she was not available to give evidence in court.

Marek Daniluk, 41, a Polish national, of Godolphin Close, Enfield, appeared before magistrates in Westminster.

Mr Daniluk was told the matter had been discontinued and he was free to go.

He was arrested in February outside the Comedy Theatre in Panton Street, central London, where Knightley, 24, had been performing.

The Crown Prosecution Service said Ms Knightley was given several possible dates to testify but declined all of them.

Ms Knightley complained of being stalked by five people two years ago. It is believed to have led to her decision to move from the UK to the US.

Adrien Brody and Vincenzo Natali talk about Splice's steamy sex scene

'Splice' Star Adrien Brody Talks 'Disturbing' Sex Scene

When working in Hollywood, the occasional sex scene is par for the course. But for Adrien Brody, his "Splice" character's encounter with a genetically engineered monstrosity takes the term "sex scene" to a whole new level.

In the film, Brody plays a scientist who collaborates with his colleague and girlfriend Sarah Polley to create a new life-form that rapidly evolves into a sentient humanoid creature played by French actress Delphine Chanéac — a creature who eventually (spoiler alert!) seduces Brody in a shocking sex scene.

"How can one compare what takes place in this movie with anything else I've had to do?" Brody told MTV News when asked about the surprising sequence, adding with a laugh, "It's a new level — it's a very Gen-X sex scenario."

Director Vincenzo Natali on his new horror film 'Splice': 'No studio wanted to make it, because of the sex.'

If you’re surprised that you haven’t heard more from director Vincenzo Natali since he made a splash with his low-budget 1998 horror movie Cube, then you’re not alone. “I’m surprised too, believe me,” laughs the Canadian filmmaker. “But I never found anything in Hollywood that I really wanted to do. Or the things I did find, no one else wanted to make. Maybe I have too much integrity — or I’m just bad at selling out! So I just kept working on little independent films.”

Natali also kept working on another horror film, Splice, which he first began writing in the late ‘90s and which Warner Bros. is finally releasing this Friday after what the director describes as “a very slow and — I have to say — painful birth.”

Those gestation problems are appropriate, given the movie’s subject matter. The Canadian-French co-production stars Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody as a a pair of scientists who “grow” a creature called Dren from both human and animal DNA. The consequences of their actions are both horrific and, in one unforgettable scene, decidedly erotic as the adult Dren (played by French actress Delphine Chaneac) and Brody make like the birds and the bees (maybe literally, given the potpourri nature of Dren’s DNA).”That scene was the reason I wanted to make the film,” says Natali. “And that’s why it’s such a miracle this film exists. No studio wanted to make it, because of sexual part of the story. So we had to go to France. And the French, of course, had no problem with it.”

After the jump, Natali talks more about creating Dren, what it was like working with legendary producer Joel Silver, and how he came to make the “dullest” Terry Gilliam documentary of all-time.

Jack Osbourne's Ex Gf Keys Car : No Restraining Order

Cops rolled over to Jack Osbourne's Hollywood Hills mansion this week after a woman pulled out a key and slashed the hell out of his super-expensive Aston Martin ... and it was all caught on tape.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ surveillance cameras on Jack's property rolled when the perp attacked the reality star's $250,000 ride on Wednesday -- causing at least $10k worth of damage.

We're told the woman was identified as an "ex." Cops eventually tracked down the woman and arrested her for felony vandalism.

Jack Osbourne asked a judge to grant a restraining order against the ex-girlfriend accused of keying the reality star's Aston Martin yesterday ... but Jack didn't get the answer he was looking for.

The judge rejected a request that Jack filed in L.A. County Superior Court earlier today -- in which he claimed 24-year-old Niki Cloyd "is apparently in a state of unpredictable rage, and I fear that she intends to do further harm to me or to my property."

In the docs, Jack also claims Niki "went through my telephone text messages, my private computer files, and flew into a rage, destroying property in my home."

As for why the judge rejected Jack's protection request -- she stated that there was insufficient evidence for a restraining order ... but offered Jack this piece of advice: "Don't allow her in your home."

McDonalds Is Using Shrek To Even More Blatantly Kill Your Kids

Fast food chain McDonald's has recalled 12m drinking glasses promoting the new Shrek movie because painted designs on them contain the toxic metal cadmium.

The glasses have been sold in the US for about $2 each and are available in four designs depicting the animated film's main characters.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned consumers to stop using the glasses immediately.

Cadmium can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, nervous system and brain.

In the case of the Shrek glasses, there are concerns about long-term exposure to low levels.

The metal could leach from the paint onto a child's hands and then enter the body if the child put the unwashed hand to his or her mouth.

'Very small amount'

McDonald's said it was asking customers to stop using the glasses "out of an abundance of caution".

"We believe the Shrek glassware is safe for consumer use," said McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman.

"However, again to ensure that our customers receive safe products from us, we made the decision to stop selling them and voluntarily recall these products, effective immediately."

CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson said: "A very small amount of cadmium can come to the surface of the glass, and in order to be as protective as possible of children, CPSC and McDonald's worked together on this recall."

He said the amounts of cadmium that had leached from the paint in tests were "slightly above the protective level currently being developed by the agency".

He added that the glasses had "far less cadmium" than items of children's metal jewellery recalled by the CPSC this year.

Shrek Forever After, the fourth and final film in the Shrek series, was released last month in the United States.

Jonathan Groff left scarred in Glee accident

Glee heart-throb Jonathan Groff discovered the dangerous side of singing on the top-rated television show.

The actor still has a 5in scar on his left arm inflicted during the staging of a stunning but energetic dance number for the final episode of Glee’s first season, which will be shown in the UK on Channel 4 and E4 later this month.

Groff rolled up his sleeve and showed me the injury that ran almost from his elbow to his shoulder.

‘I was singing the Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody, dancers were flying all over the place and a girl’s heel got stuck into me and drew blood,’ he told me before joking: ‘I think at that very moment of contact I reached my highest notes.

‘I was lucky, though. Some had bruises, there was a broken limb or two, others drew blood. It was like a scene from Gladiator,’ the 25-year-old added with a laugh, as we lunched at the West End fish and seafood restaurant J Sheekey.

I didn't even know Madonna was making a movie

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Madonna has recruited British actor James D'Arcy to star in her next directorial venture W.E., says Variety.

D'Arcy, whose credits include Revelation, Master And Commander and Flashbacks Of A Fool, will play King Edward VIII in the drama. Andrea Riseborough, Abbie Cornish and Oscar Isaac are also confirmed for the cast.

The movie features two love stories: in the present Cornish's Wally romances a Russian security guard who works at Sotheby's, while in the past the king abdicates the throne to marry American socialite Wallis Simpson.

Madonna recently told Interview of the project: "The Duke and Duchess of Windsor are in the movie, but it's not going to be about them. It's really about this other woman's journey, and the Duchess is kind of her spiritual guide.

"It's set mostly in pre-World War II England-like, 1936 to 1937-and then in New York in 1998. It goes back and forth in time. I use the Sotheby's auction in 1998 of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's estate as a device to flash backward from." (wut)


Am going to see this for my true love Mr. D'Arcy.

Kristen Stewart: 'I Made an Enormous Mistake'

No sooner did excerpts from July's British Elle make their way to the Internet on Wednesday than the blogosphere exploded in outrage.

In an offending quote, Twilight saga star Kristen Stewart compared paparazzi photos of herself to images of a woman being raped. Almost immediately, everyone from fans to spokespeople for rape victims' advocacy organizations were publicly criticizing the actress.

"I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously," Stewart, currently in Korea to promote the new installment of the Twilight series Eclipse, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "And I'm really sorry about my choice of words.

Stewart, 20, is not known as one to mince words. "I've made stupid remarks before, and I've always reasoned: 'Whatever. They can think what they want,' " she says.

But in this instance, the Los Angeles-born actress feels compelled to address the situation. " 'Violated' definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought," she notes.

In fact, the issue of violence against women is one that has been close to Stewart since playing a victim of rape in the 2004 film Speak. She has done public service announcements for the advocacy group RAINN and for SOC.

The irony of the situation in which Stewart now finds herself is not lost on the actress. "People thinking that I'm insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake."

2 Japanese theaters cancel "The Cove"

TOKYO (AP) - Two more movie theaters in Japan have canceled screenings of "The Cove," an Oscar-winning documentary that shows footage of a dolphin hunt in a Japanese village.

In recent months, protesters with loudspeakers have been shouting slogans at the Tokyo office of Unplugged, the distributor of "The Cove," criticizing the film as a betrayal of Japanese pride.

Unplugged said Friday the cancellations at Cinemart theaters in Tokyo and Osaka were triggered by worries about safety of moviegoers and businesses nearby. The Tokyo cinema where the movie was to open changed its mind Thursday after getting angry phone calls and warnings of protests.

Most Japanese have never eaten dolphin meat. But some believe killing dolphins and whales is part of traditional culinary culture and resent the interference of outsiders focused on species protection.

"The Cove" screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival in October and at smaller events in Japan but has not opened to the Japanese public. The Japanese version blurs the faces of some people on screen to lessen the possibility of trouble.

Unplugged said talks were under way with other theaters to show the film, although details weren't released.

Fans Will Be Allowed to Visit Michael on June 25th

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale is opening up the gates to Michael Jackson's fans on the anniversary of The King of Pop's death.

Randy Jackson tells X17online exclusively:

"I just had a meeting with Forest Lawn and beginning on June 25, the anniversary of my brother's death, fans will be able to go right up to the mausoleum and drop off flowers and pay their respects. Michael loved his fans, and the family wants to make sure that the fans are able to celebrate his incredible life."

At the 1-year anniversary memorial on June 25, Randy tells X17online that his sister Janet, Michael's three children and mom, Katherine will be there. Also attending ... Lisa Marie Presley who last month inspired a flower shop to deliver thousands of sunflowers to Forest Lawn in memory of Jackson.

X17online brought you the exclusive details about Lisa Marie Presley's initial visit to the mausoleum in which she carried in an empty portrait-sized frame filled with sunflowers ... spending over an hour getting the placement just right.

Various groups, like the Justice4MJ fan group consisting of thousands of members, had plans to gather at the mausoleum for the special 1-year anniversary. However, just last month Forest Lawn security had been informed that fans were no longer welcome. Thanks to Michael's youngest brother, that has all changed.

Randy adds, "We are so thankful to know that our brother's fans still love him as much as we do."


If this is true, hopefully the fans will know to act civilized and respectfully.

Just another day in the Wienermobile (with Ty Burrell from 'Modern Family')

Yesterday was pretty typical for me: I went to the office, ate a salad, answered some e-mail and took a ride in the Wienermobile with the dad from Modern Family.

Yep, around 11 a.m., a giant hot dog stopped in front of my office and I climbed inside with Ty Burrell, who plays the hilarious Phil Dunphy on the show. We began to roll downtown.

As I've mentioned before, Burrell is the face of Oscar Mayer's Good Mood Mission charity campaign. Its "Shotbun" contest is offering four folks the chance to spend a day in the Wienermobile. Just for entering, the company will donate a pound of food to hunger-relief charity Feeding America.

As we careened down the city streets, some people waved and took pictures. Others barely noticed; it takes a lot to get a New Yorker's attention.

"I'm amazed at the people who don't even look up," I said. "I mean, there's a GIANT HOT DOG rolling down the street!"

"They just think it's a really weird, huge cab," Burrell said. "They'll be flagging us down."

The wonderful Anna Paquin talks about coming out as bisexual

Anna Paquin: Why I Came Out As Bisexual

Anna Paquin announced that she was bisexual in a PSA for a gay advocacy group a couple of months ago, and now she says she just wanted to do her part in advancing equality.

"I'm not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about -- and frankly, I don't see why everyone doesn't care about them," she told Zap2it. "So when I was asked to participate in that PSA (for True Colors First, a gay rights organization), it was just an obvious, 'Well, of course I will.'"

Anna, 27, is engaged to her 'True Blood' costar Stephen Moyer and said that her coming out was no surprise to those close to her.

"It wasn't like it was a big secret," she said. "It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person's voice doesn't necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit."

See the PSA in which Anna comes out here.

John Carpenter! Hilary Swank! Vampires! Together at last!


Any John Carpenter news is good news, right?

Comingsoon.net reports that the horror master is officially signed on to direct Fangland, based on the book by John Marks. Hilary Swank, who has been attached to the stalled project for awhile, is set to star.

The official synopsis of Fangland, via Wikipedia:

Evangeline Harker, Associate Producer on television news magazine “The Hour”, is sent to Transylvania to scout out a possible story on a notorious Eastern European crime boss named Ion Torgu. But she finds the true nature of Torgu’s activities to be far more monstrous than she could have imagined. In the New York office that once stood in the shadow of the Twin Towers, Evangeline’s disappearance causes uproar and a wave of guilt and recrimination. Then suddenly, months after her disappearance, she’s found convalescing in a Transylvanian monastery, her memory seemingly scrubbed. But then who was sending e-mails in her name? And what do those crates delivered to the office contain?And why does the show’s sound system appear to be infected with some strange aural virus? As a very dark Old-World atmosphere deepens in the halls of one of America’s most trusted television programmes, its employees are forced to confront a threat beyond their wildest imaginings.

In summation: pretty producer meets vampire, pretty producer is subdued by vampire’s powers, vampire follows pretty producer home and makes her life (and job) hell. Sounds fun.

The big news is that Carpenter is directing. I was under the impression that he was no longer really interested in movies. Sure, he’s currently working on The Ward but he’s been very hesitant to work on feature films lately. I can’t really blame the guy, he’s older and has some lofty laurels to rest on (just forget about Ghost of Mars…and Escape from LA). But he’s one of the greatest horror directors of all time so I’m always happy to hear he’s working, even if his late work hasn’t been that strong.

Plus he’s got a popular book, a famous Oscar-winning actress, and a subject that everyone’s crazy about (vampires). Let’s hope he’s back in prime form. We’re all counting on you, John Carpenter!

Not really sure whether these are simply promotional images (not your typical Disney fare) or if they’re from something bigger and better as we received no details other than the images themselves, but after intently studying them for several hours, I have made an executive editorial decision that it doesn’t matter.

Xtina needs to get on the ground and start praying now!

Bad times just got worse.

For the week ending May 30, the U.S. music industry sold a total of 4,984,000 albums, according to Nielsen Soundscan. This figure, which includes new and catalog releases, represents the fewest number of albums sold in one week since Soundscan began compiling this data in 1994. By comparison, album sales for the week ending May 31, 2009, totaled 5.76 million. The highest one-week tally recorded during the Soundscan era is 45.4 million albums, in late December, 2000. This week's record low comes as the major record companies continue to reckon with a decade-long decline in sales, and as other prominent sectors of the industry, such as the touring business, go through sea changes of their own.

And that's not all: While there's no exact way to compare last week's total against imprecise, pre-Soundscan tallies, Billboard estimates that weekly album sales volume could, in fact, be at its lowest point since the early 1970s. "We think this is the lowest week ever, or at least of the Soundscan era," says Universal Music Group Distribution president Jim Urie.

Wigging Out: The Kardashian Sisters Go Blonde For a Day!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Talk about having a blonde moment. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian played up their lighter side this week, ditching their raven hair and sporting blonde wigs during a photoshoot for Beach Bunny Swimwear on Wednesday.

“Back to blonde,” Kim Tweeted yesterday, before clarifying on her Web site: ”Don’t worry, it’s a wig!”

And while Kim says she channeled Marilyn Monroe with her old Hollywood waves, sister Khloe says she had another famous blonde in mind: “I felt very Lady Gaga with that ‘do, especially since we weren’t wearing any pants LOL,” she wrote on her blog. Though Khloe says there were no pictures of her from behind-the-scenes, she did post a photo of older sis, Kourtney, who donned a platinum shoulder-grazing wig.

With so many Kardashian collaborations in the works, from sexy dresses for Bebe to jewelry for Virgin, Saints & Angels, it’s safe to say that keeping up with these Kardashians is a difficult task!

Kim Kardashian Requested the "Biggest Butt" for Her iPhone App Avatar

Booty call!

Kim Kardashian knows her strongest asset.

The curvaceous Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 29, had a clear vision for the design of her eponymous Appetizer Mobile iPhone app, which includes her beauty tips, tweets and several animated screenshots of herself.

"Kim approved it all," says a source. In fact, she paid special attention to one specific body part: her famed derriere!

"Kim asked them to revise her avatar three or four times because it didn't look right to her."

Her final pick? "She went with the biggest butt of all the options."

The source adds that Kardashian "was happy with the app," now on iTunes.


Glee needs more "friendly" homophobes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

L. Brent Bozell III, right-wing scion and president of the conservative “media watchdog” group the Media Research Center, wrote a column today in TownHall to express his absolute outrage at the television show “Glee” for promoting a “homosexual lifestyle.” Bozell, whose “think-tank” is funded by foundation money from David and Julie Koch of the oil conglomerate Koch Industries and ExxonMobil, among other corporate sources, denounced the show for portraying opponents of homosexuality as “vicious school bullies.” Bozell lamented the fact that that Glee’s homophobes were “two brutish football players” who “threatened to pummel the openly gay and riotously effeminate character Kurt for dressing up like a girl”:

“Bill O’Reilly recently hosted a “culture warriors” segment at Fox News where both “warriors” agreed that homosexuality is morally acceptable. That same no-debate mentality has been a regular drumbeat on the Fox television series “Glee,” a musical drama/comedy about a high school glee club in Lima, Ohio. [...] The only characters on the show disapproving of homosexuality are vicious school bullies. In the May 25 episode, two brutish football players threatened to pummel the openly gay and riotously effeminate character Kurt for dressing up like a girl. Everyone else in this series approves, endorses or participates in the homosexual lifestyle.“

While it may seem astounding that Bozell found the urge to whine that “this show has presented gay as the ‘new normal,’” and that “Glee” lacks enough friendly gay-bashers, his complaints are par for the course for his organization, which is considered a mainstream conservative establishment. Yesterday, Bozell’s bloggers tried to drum up an absurd conspiracy theory, accusing Time magazine of printing a picture of the World Cup logo that looks “strikingly like that of the Obama logo.”

Chace Crawford Gets Into The NYC Drug Scene In Our EXCLUSIVE Reveal Of 'Twelve' Trailer

"Gossip Girl" fans looking to take the Nate-less edge off their summer should direct their attention immediately to MTV's exclusive new trailer for Chace Crawford's new movie, "Twelve."

We already knew this from April's teaser trailer, but Chace departs from a privileged world of rich kids on the Upper East Side to... another privileged world of rich kids on the Upper East Side. But this time, he gets himself into a LOT more trouble. Grandfather wouldn't approve.

Instead of playing mind games with their classmates to make their fun, the kids in "Twelve" turn to Chace's White Mike (ha!), a drug dealer who supplies them with whatever they need — except the mysterious new drug, Twelve. That's handled by 50 Cent.

White Mike is also one of the bored rich kids, and tricks his girlfriend, played by Emma Roberts, into thinking that he's working for his father. But when his cousin, Charlie (Jeremy Allen White), is murdered by 50 Cent (fine, we know he's not actually playing himself, but they never say his name in the trailer so it's more fun this way), his two worlds collide.

Scandalous! But not in "Gossip Girl"'s fun, witty way. "Twelve" looks pretty serious. In fact, with the dramatic voiceover in the beginning of the trailer, it might even take itself too seriously. Either way, we're intrigued. And Emily Meade looks like she will be a revelation as one of the Twelve-addicted teens.

"If I'm being honest, I've never been into the real sexy dude, the dude that do sexy faces and stuff, I don't even like when girls do that. 50's cut. (Laughs) 50's cut. 50's also, big cut. Kanye's cockyness makes him a ten. That's the same with 50 too. They're so over-the-top confident."

Groupies are a rapper’s best friend... not.

Since February, babbling Venezuelan vixen Kat Stacks has taken to any mic in reach to air the dirty details of her alleged sexcapades with rappers such as Nelly, Mack Maine, Fabolous and Bow Wow. A mini Karrine Steffans, Stacks even created a blog (www.katstacks.com) to further exploit her all-expense-paid trysts with hip-hop’s big names.

But what goes up, must come down (no pun).

On Friday (May 28), grainy footage of Stacks getting repeatedly smacked in the face by two men in an Atlanta bar surfaced on the web. The thugs demanded an apology on behalf of both Fab and Bow, raising suspicion that one of the two MCs strategized the attack.

Bow Wow’s reaction? “That’s not even my character. Come on now, I make songs for girls. Do I look like the kind of nigga that has goons? That doesn’t even make sense,” he tells VIBE. “If I don’t react to a situation that means I’m not even thinking about it. I let everybody on Twitter talk, but I don’t know nothing. That’s real talk. I don’t condone what she does, but at the same time I have better things to do.”

Exclusive Fan Interview with Michael Fassbender

Image from Wonderland Magazine

Hello my ONTD peeps! I had the wonderful opportunity to interview Michael Fassbender a few weeks ago and I would like to post it here for you to enjoy!

For more images and live links, please read the article at Fassinating Fassbender

The Chameleon Actor with the Contagious Smile

In chronicling actor Michael Fassbender’s career, the editor of Fassinating Fassbender was honored to speak with him to ask some questions, share some laughs, reveal common interests, and present an all around happy and intriguing man.

It’s not everyday when a fan gets the opportunity to interview one of their favorite actors. In fact, it is rare for a mere fan to have access to interview a celebrity, and a busy one at that. Michael currently has seven films in pre&post production status for the 2010-11 calendar, and counting. Originally I sought out to have a few questions answered by Michael via email, but as I soon learned, he does not use the computer often. And when it was presented to me that he preferred to conduct the interview on the phone, it was more than I could ever ask for.

Interviewing him live would allow for a natural flow of conversation and ad-libbing based on the information shared. I spoke with Michael just as he finished up his rendition of Mr. Rochester in 'Jane Eyre', and just as he is preparing to portray Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method'. So as I dialed up Michael’s mobile number on a rainy Michigan morning in May, any anxieties I woke up with, slowly dissipated and I felt oddly comfortable as if this event were meant to occur at that particular time. On the fifth ring, at 1pm GMT, Michael picked up the phone like he would any other call. That’s just how cool he is.

OH, HALE NO: Katherine Heigl submits herself for an Emmy

Though she sat out more than half of the season of Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine Heigl has submitted herself in the supporting actress category for this year’s Emmy race, her representative confirms. There is no set amount of episodes that an actor must appear in to be eligible for either the supporting or lead actor categories.

Heigl only appeared in a handful of episodes this year before her character, Dr. Izzie Stevens, was last seen around Seattle Grace in January. Heigl was due back on the set of the ABC drama March 1 but she never showed up. Heigl told EW that “rumors that I refused to return were totally untrue.” ABC Studios said it was mutually agreed upon that Heigl would end her run this season.

Nominations for the 62nd Primetime Emmys will be announced July 8. As for the rest of the Grey’s stars, Ellen Pompeo submitted herself as lead actress, while the other ensemble members — including Patrick Dempsey — will duke it out in the supporting categories. To vie for the best drama prize, Grey’s submitted the two-hour finale, as well as the episodes “The Time Warp,” “Suicide is Painless,” “I Saw What I Saw,” and “Give Peace a Chance” for consideration.

NBC will air the Emmys on Aug. 29.

WOW. She can't even be bothered to finish out her storyline in a believable way, but she thinks she deserves an award? I don't at all believe that that was the 'planned' end of Izzie's story. After that shameless award-baiting cancer storyline and then the dumbest wedding ever and the random Alex-dissing? NO.

UCLA legendary coach John Wooden dies at age 99

LOS ANGELES -- Former UCLA basketball coach and Hall of Famer John Wooden died of natural causes on Friday at age 99, the school announced.

Little had been released regarding his condition.

Earlier in the day, former UCLA and Los Angeles Lakers star Jamaal Wilkes told The Associated Press that he visited Wooden in his hospital room twice this week and they chatted briefly.

Wilkes said Wooden recognized him and that the coach's mind remains "sharp as a tack," although he said the 99-year-old Wooden's body is "very, very frail."

During his second visit on Wednesday night, Wilkes asked Wooden if he recognized him.

"His glasses fogged up and he had to clean his glasses," Wilkes said. "He looked at me and said, 'I remember you, now go sit down."

Wilkes teamed with Bill Walton to help UCLA win NCAA titles in 1972 and '73. He was part of UCLA's record 88-game winning streak under Wooden.

50 Hilarious TV Screenshots and Freeze Frames

Some may call television mindless and that may be true. It often acts as a refuge for those returning home from a stressful day at work, filled with the desire to plop down in front of that comforting blue glow and space out until nodding off into a slumber.

But, sometimes, perfect timing or just plain old shenanigans can make us jump out of our seats with a resounding "HA!" We appreciate the quirky, quippy t-shirts that are displayed proudly as the camera does a quick pan by the sports crowd. Our eyebrows raise at freeze frames which reveal small, lesser-known details about our favorite shows.

Surreal subtitles are always good for a laugh and those working the title boards at news stations or creating the descriptive blurbs for movies-on-demand amuse us with their clever semantics. Or, perhaps, by falling asleep on the job and using their snoring face to create an incoherent string of letters where a popular television personality's name should go. Thankfully, someone has captured tons of these moments in hilarious screenshots.

Fruit...F-R-O-O-T...Fruit - Spelling Bee Draws Protests Over Spelling Of Words

The nation's capital always draws its share of protesters, picketing for causes ranging from health care reform to immigration policy.

But spelling bee protesters? They're out here, too.

Four peaceful protesters, some dressed in full-length black and yellow bee costumes, represented the American Literacy Council and the London-based Spelling Society and stood outside the Grand Hyatt on Thursday, where the Scripps National Spelling Bee is being held. Their message was short: Simplify the way we spell words.

Roberta Mahoney, 81, a former Fairfax County, Va. elementary school principal, said the current language obstructs 40 percent of the population from learning how to read, write and spell.

"Our alphabet has 425-plus ways of putting words together in illogical ways," Mahoney said.

The protesting cohort distributed pins to willing passers-by with their logo, "Enuf is enuf. Enough is too much."

According to literature distributed by the group, it makes more sense for "fruit" to be spelled as "froot," "slow" should be "slo," and "heifer" — a word spelled correctly during the first oral round of the bee Thursday by Texas competitor Ramesh Ghanta — should be "hefer."
