MARY J. BLIGE + CATHERINE MALANDRINO CHARITY FASHION SHOW

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Remember Mary J. Blige’s collaboration with premium label Gucci which released a watch for her foundation: FFAWN last year? The songstress is doing more good deeds and now she’s collaborating with fashion designer, Catherine Malandrino. They released stylish t-shirts last winter for FFAWN (Foundation For the Achievement of Women Now) and now the duo stepped it up onto the next level: they’re doing a charity fashion show!

Malandrino said to WWD that it’s about women and helping women, so the show isn’t limited for the fashion circle. However, since the ticket will help cover college tuition for 30 graduates of the Women’s Academy of Excellence, you can expect it to be rather steep. Secure yourself a seat for the June 15th event for $1000 per-seat, and get the ultimate chance to see what Blige and Malandrino have to offer since their collabo t-shirts were sold out at Bloomingdale’s. The event will be held at the New York Museum Of Modern Art.

Word is, there will be a complete ready-to-wear collection consisting of a variety of 25 styles. There will also be stylish tops and leather jackets to debut at the show. Interested in getting a seat and helping the less fortunate women?

Check FFAWN’s website for more details!

Nelson Mandela's great-granddaughter killed in car crash


Nelson Mandela's great-granddaughter was killed in a car crash last night on her way home from a concert in Soweto to celebrate the opening of the World Cup in South Africa today.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation said Zenani Mandela, 13, died in an accident involving one car. No one else was injured.

A police spokesman said Zenani, one of Mandela's nine great-grandchildren, had been travelling with his former wife, Winnie Madikizela.

The former South African president, 91, was expected to take some part in today's opening day festivities, although his family is worried about his health.

"The family has asked for privacy as they mourn this tragedy," the foundation said in a statement.

Yesterday three British students were killed and several injured in a bus crash after their vehicle overturned near a small town in the north-east of the country.

The two young women and one young man were said by the British high commission in Pretoria to have been in a party of 18 students and two lecturers from a further education college in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

The students were on a field trip accompanied by a South African guide and a Zimbabwean driver. Their bus crashed about half a mile outside Barberton.

South Africa has been enjoying a carnival atmosphere during the build-up to World Cup, with fans from the 32 competing nations flying in from across the globe.

It had been hoped that Mandela, who is 92 on 18 July, would make a brief appearance at the World Cup opening ceremony.

International top tracks on Last.fm: Christina Aguilera’s “Woohoo” rises in popularity; Gaga dominates.



Lady Gaga has the five most popular tracks for the second week running on Last.fm, the internet radio station that lets users in more than 200 countries listen to music in the site's library. "Bad Romance," "Telephone," and "Poker Face" top the chart released June 7, which also included tracks by MGMT, Ke$ha, The xx, and Muse.

With the exception of "Alejandro," all of the week's top singles are long-standing favorites, some of them returning to the top ten after having been temporarily bumped by new tracks from indie band The National.



The most hyped track of the week is Christina Aguilera's "Woohoo," featuring Licky Minaj, off new album Bionic. Another act seeing a recent surge in its listeners base is Australian rock/drum and bass group Pendulum, whose album Immersion dropped in late May, "Set Me On Fire" and "Salt in the Wounds" from that album are both among the five most hyped tracks of the week.

The Top 3 Bachelor Bromance Moments from The Bachelorette Episode 6.3

"Guy time" on The Bachelorette isn't just about misplaced aggression or kicking another bachelor when he's down. (You're shocked there's more to the show than that — we know!)

3. What was the one thing that John wanted to say before he got cut off?? Was he going to defend Justin? Does he have six months to live? We'll never know!
 



Ty (to the guys while Justin is away): Be the same person. Be true to... you owe it to yourself!

Justin (approaching from the background): I'm sorry, I gotta butt in here. I'm just kinda curious — who exactly are we talking about?

[Silence]


Kasey:
We're taking about you.

Roberto:

Ty:

John:

January Jones' Hit and Run



Mad Men star January Jones, who plays Betty, the icy blonde (soon-to-be-ex) wife of Jon Hamm's Don Draper, was apparently involved in a car collision in Los Angeles Thursday night, the LAPD tells TMZ.

The actress, 32, was at the wheel of a Range Rover around 9 p.m. when she allegedly lost control and collided with three parked vehicles, resulting in major damage.

One witness is quoted as telling police that Jones left the scene on foot, having said, "I can't deal with this commotion."

Jones reportedly returned later and said she had left the scene – and her license in the Range Rover – because she was being followed by paparazzi.
The report says she walked home to call 911 before returning to her vehicle.

She has not been cited or arrested in the case.

Police, who have impounded her car and launched an investigation, say no alcohol or drugs were involved.

Gary Coleman and Shannon Price had only been married a week when he signed everything over to her in the event of his death, according to a new will Price filed Thursday in a Utah court.

In making Price, 24, the sole heir to his estate, Coleman added cryptically in the handwritten document dated Sept. 4, 2007: "This I have done because of my own personal selfishness and weakness and I love her with all my heart."

Aside from bank accounts, property, cars and other earnings, the alleged new will also leaves Price his "model trains, toys, [and] games." Coleman, 42, was a lifelong model train enthusiast and often spent hours tinkering with his collection in his basement, friends say.

Naomi Watts can`t bring herself to watch Heath Ledger`s last flick



Actress Naomi Watts has admitted she still hasn't seen Heath Ledger's last movie The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.

Watts, 41, dated the actor for two years between 2002 and 2004 and says she hasn't been able to bring herself to watch the last movie the actor made before his death in January 2008.

Asked if she's seen the flick, she told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: 'No. In time. I've always loved [the director] Terry Gilliam's films.

'And Heath was an unbelievably brilliant talent, I'm sure he's wonderful to watch. But, yeah, it's kind of... confronting.'

Watts is now engaged to fellow actor Liev Schreiber and they have two young sons together.

She says they will marry when the timing is right.

Watts added: 'We'll see. It's never been that important to me. If it was important to our children, I would do it in a heartbeat. We'll see.'

Kristen Stewart Eyes West End Debut




'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart is hoping to soon test her acting chops onstage, preferrably in the West End. Inspired by friend Eddie Redmayne, whom she saw perform in RED at the Donmar Warehouse (Redmayne is now performing in RED on Broadway), Stewart told 'Vogue' magazine of the challenge: "Unlike movie acting, you have to deliver the whole performance there and then. You live it every night."

According to Baz Bamigboye in the U.K. Daily Mail today, a West End producer and director are attempting to woo the actress to the stage. Reportedly, she has casually met with the theater makers, who have given her several scripts. No project has been decided upon. Complicating an imminent appearance in the West End are Stewart's fim committments: she has one more 'Twilight' film to shoot and soon begins production on On The Road.


Stewart is most well known for playing Bella in the wildly popular 'Twilight Saga' films. Her other film credits include, 'Panic Room,' 'Cold Creek Manor,' 'Undertow' for which she was nominated for a Young Artist Award for Best Performace In a Feature Film- Supporting Young Actress, 'Zathura,' 'The Cake Eaters,' 'Into The Wild,' 'Jumer,' 'Adventureland,' 'The Runaways,' and the upcoming 'On The Road.'

Justin Bieber Parents Brutal Custody Battle

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Recent rumors have stated that Justin Bieber’s parents were once involved in a very heated custody battle for the young star. He was raised by Pattie Mallette and Jeremy Bieber, who became involved in the battle over custody following their separation. His mother was only 17 when she got pregnant with the young boy, and his father was 19. Despite their young ages, the couple tried to live together and grow into a successful marriage.

Like many relationships between young individuals often do, they were not ready for the commitment and eventually split, leaving a bitter custody battle for their son in the wake.

The fight eventually went to court, where Pattie said that Jeremy had a history of “criminal activity.”
That turned out to be true, as Bieber’s father was arrested on several occasions and was thrown in jail for a range of charges including assault causing bodily harm and breach of probation.


According to the legal documents that recently surfaced online, Pattie was granted custody of young Justin in 1995. In 1996, Jeremy asked to spend more time with his son and asked that Justin be allowed to stay with him on overnight stays. This was a request that was fought hard by Bieber’s mother, who accused Jeremy of going on drinking binges and repeatedly using drugs.

Bieber turned out to be a bright, talented, normal individual. His parents were able to raise an upstanding young man despite their previous relationship problems, and Bieber now seems to have a healthy relationship with both his mother and his father.

-----------------------------------

Eh I'm really not surprised that his father is a criminal and to be honest he looks a bit like a douche. Thank god Bieber is around his mother most of the time. I mean just look at the his website :| lol step back becase he's a hardcore spade player!

Torchwood: who should join the team?


The iPhone wasn't the only exciting fourth iteration to be announced yesterday, you know. 'Woodies around the world can relax. The BBC confirmed last night the long-rumoured return of Torchwood as a gleaming 10-part international co-production. The deal that was mooted with Fox never came about – instead the new Torchwood will be co-produced by BBC Wales, BBC Worldwide and the US pay-TV channel Starz, the people behind Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

As we speculated earlier in the year, this isn't going to be a US remake of the series but a big, international next chapter, with John Barrowman and Eve Myles reprising their roles as Jack and Gwen. That's all they can bring back, as everyone else is dead (Rhys will presumably spend the series at home looking after the baby). Which brings us to the crucial question: given that this is a US co-production, they're presumably going to bring in some American actors. So who might be added to the new Torchwood team?

'Easy A' Screening with Emma Stone and Will Gluck

If you haven't seen the trailer for the upcoming film 'Easy A,' you are missing out. Loosely based on 'The Scarlet Letter,' the film is the story of Olive, (Emma Stone) a high school girl who uses a rumor about losing her virginity to change the way she's perceived. What I've seen so far had me laughing my butt off.

The film comes out in September, but Moviefone had a special screening in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night. I got a chance to chat with star Emma Stone and director Will Gluck who were there to introduce the film. Check out what Emma had to say about filming a fake sex scene, and Will's tips on what classic 80's film moments to look for. And, of course, I have some fan reaction as well. 'Easy A' opens this September.

I was there. Emma Stone was beautiful irl, even though it was kind of dark inside the theater. The movie was okay. It was entertaining to say the least, but it wasn't the final cut so maybe it'll be better when it comes out. Oh, and LaLaine (Miranda Sanchez) had a short cameo.

FlashForward Fans Stage Global Blackout

Supporters of the cancelled TV show converged on London’s leafy Wandsworth Common last night to stage a mass “blackout.” Pretend blackouts, lasting for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, mimicking the opening of the show, also took place simultaneously in Edinburgh, Dublin, Pisa, Italy. European fans linked up with US campaigners trying to save the show. Mini-blackouts were staged in New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles, where protestors fainted in front of ABC’s offices in Burbank. I’m not sure that a lot of people falling over will move the Mouse House to pity though.

Criminal Defense Attorney predicts jail time for Lindsay



A couple of weeks ago Lindsay Lohan managed to avoid time behind bars by posting $100,000 bail on an arrest warrant that was issued after she missed a probation hearing stemming from 2007 drunk driving and drug charges.

The troubled Tinseltowner was partying away in Cannes when she claimed her passport was stolen, hence her missed court appearance.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel ordered Lohan to wear an alcohol-monitoring SCRAM device. The device registered the presence of alcohol on Sunday evening, prompting Revel to issue another bench warrant for her arrest due to a violation of her probation.

The warrant was revoked on Tuesday when her bondsman paid $20,000 of her $200,000 bail (the standard 10 percent). But just because the 23-year-old avoided a stint in the slammer this time, one expert says there's a good chance she’ll do hard time for setting off her SCRAM.

“I will be very surprised if she doesn’t go to jail,” Santa Monica criminal defense attorney Steve Cron, who does not work with Ms. Lohan, told Pop Tarts. “I have known Judge Revel for a long time, and she isn’t one to let people get away with wrong doings. It seems Lindsay doesn’t care much about anything and has no perception of the real world. The judge just isn’t going to accept that.”

Lohan is set to appear in court on July 6.

Her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley said in a statement that the device indicated the “presence of a small amount of alcohol” after she attended the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, adding that Lohan maintains she has been in complete compliance with all the terms and conditions of her probation.

The device was apparently activated at Katy Perry’s post-MTV bash at new Hollywood club Las Palmas on Sunday night, and according to an eyewitness, who did not see Lohan drinking, Lohan certainly wasn't letting a little thing like an oddly luminous object around her ankle pull her away from the party.

“Lindsay was running around happily saying ‘hi’ to people,” said our source, adding that when Lohan was questioned about the “thing” going off on her ankle she shrugged it off as an accessory she called “a light-up bracelet.”

David Tennant joins Fright Night remake


Former Doctor Who actor David Tennant is to star in Hollywood remake Fright Night, according to a US report.

The Scotsman will play a character originally portrayed by Roddy McDowall in the 1985 movie, says industry publication The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor, who was replaced by Matt Smith as the Time Lord, will be making his first major foray into US film.

He previously appeared in the pilot of TV show Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, which was not made into a full series.

Fright Night, which is being made by Dreamworks, will also star Toni Collette as the mother of a teenager who harbours suspicions that his new neighbour - played by Colin Farrell - is a vampire.

Russian-born actor Anton Yelchin, who appeared in Star Trek and Terminator Salvation, has been cast as the boy Charley Brewster.

Tennant will play Peter Vincent, a Las Vegas magician who claims to possess expert knowledge of vampires.

The film will be directed by Craig Gillespie, whose other credits include cult hit Lars and The Real Girl.

Work on the movie is due to start next month.

Kathy Griffin's New Special & The 10 Greatest Stand-Up Comedy Specials Ever

The 10 Greatest Stand-Up Comedy Specials Ever

After previewing Kathy Griffin’s newest stand-up special a couple days ago, I wondered why the art of the stand-up special seems to have withered in an age where a simple one-liner can become the most popular video on the Internet. The best stand-up specials of all time remain compulsively consumable gems years later, well after Comedy Central stopped using them to pad its daily schedule. Movieline has compiled its 10 favorite specials after the jump with the hope of honoring a format that deserves to stay relevant forever. Banjos and mic stands ready!




10. Kathy Griffin, Allegedly

Say what you will about Kathy Griffin’s place alongside traditionally observant icons like Bill Cosby, but the woman practically invented her own form of stand-up. In Allegedly, she broke down the hierarchy of Hollywood’s status-obsessed culture to staggering effect. She may not be a mannered comedian (she even claims not to prepare a single line of dialogue ahead of time), but that’s what makes her a legend: She’s George Carlin as filtered through Louella Parsons.

Betty Draper needs to work on her lying skills



As we first reported Jones was driving home last night when her car struck 3 parked vehicles.  She left her license with a witness, walked a short distance to her home, called 911 and eventually returned to the scene.  Jones told cops paparazzi were following her and that's why she crashed. Cops did not administer a field sobriety test -- we were told because there was no evidence of alcohol.

But now we're getting a more involved story.  A woman who owns one of the cars that was hit tells TMZ ... she heard the crash, looked over her balcony and saw Jones.  She says around 10 minutes after the crash, Food Network star Bobby Flay showed up in a separate car, began talking with her and telling her to leave the scene, which she did. 

We spoke with Flay, who tells us he was watching the basketball game last night at The London West Hollywood Hotel with a group of people that included Jones.  Flay says he saw her drink a beer but wasn't really watching her alcohol intake.  Flay says he had only met Jones once before, and last night she asked for his number because she wanted to redo her kitchen and give his number to her designer.  Flay obliged, and says he doesn't know why Jones chose to call him after the crash, but nonetheless he drove over to help her.  He says he did not argue but just wanted to make sure she was ok.

The witness at the scene tells TMZ she was face-to-face with Jones and smelled alcohol on her breath.  The witness says Jones left her driver's license with another resident and left.  She returned 45 minutes later in a different set of clothes, chewing gum.

The witness says she asked cops if they were going to administer a field sobriety test, but a cop told her there was no point since she could have had a drink at home and there was no way of proving she was under the influence when she was behind the wheel.  Cops confirm there is no way to pin drinking and driving on someone who leaves the scene and comes back.

As for being chased by the paparazzi ... none of the witnesses we spoke with saw any photogs at the scene, and no pictures have surfaced that show the scene immediately after the crash.  The pics you see in this post were taken many hours later.


Jones' reps have not returned our calls.

Will Arnett and Jason Bateman premiere their first digital short, 'The Prom Date.'



Will Arnett and Jason Bateman unveiled the first digital short from their production company DumbDumb and Ben Silverman’s Electus on Thursday, as part of Internet Week New York.

“The Prom Date,” starring Arnett, Bateman, Rachael Harris, and Aubrey Plaza, became available on YouTube earlier today and tells the story of two parents (Bateman and Harris) getting their daughter ready for her senior prom. Of course, she’s not going with just some boy, she’s going with Skip, her soulmate, a word that strikes fear in the hearts of many a parent. Bateman’s wary of Skip’s intentions, commenting on how boys these days “know how to act all polite, and before you know it they’ve got their Facebook all up in your Twitter.”

Squinty & B.Coop's Big Gay Wedding?


Squinty Zellweger not only resembles a lemon-sucking blonde version of Liza Minnelli, but apparently she's got the same thirst for (allegedly) gay husbands. See Kenny Chesney.


Page Six seems to think that Squinty is planning on marrying her Bradley Cooper, because she went wedding dress shopping at Carolina Herrera in West Hollywood last week. A witness type said that she looked at dresses for nearly two hours, and coyly smiled whenever someone asked her if she was getting hitched. Squints left with a garment bag in hand.

Squints is going for some kind of professional fag hag record! Maybe she actually likes spending her wedding night nibbling on a piece of cake in the corner of her suite while listening to her new husband sloppily eating another dude's ass in the next room? Or maybe she just likes weddings. And the best way to party at a wedding is to do it next to a gay!

While a straight man might roll his eyes or let out a mouth fart when they release the white doves into the sky, a gay's heart will flutters right next to yours. And while a straight dude might not give a fuck what you look like during the reception as long your ass puts out that night, a gay will make sure you look like elegant perfection from top to bottom at all times! So I get it, Squints. I get it

Man who smells like a man hired by NBC for...something


Peddling men’s cologne on top of a horse has been very good for Isaiah Mustafa. The star of the memorable Old Spice commercials has closed a talent deal with NBC, which hopes to add him him to one of the network’s current or new series, Variety reports.
Mustafa’s previous credits include small parts in shows like NCIS, Ugly Betty, and Castle before he booked the Old Spice ads — one of which aired during the Super Bowl. The actor told EW earlier this year that the high-profile spot ended up having a big impact on how he was perceived in Hollywood. “What’s funny is no one knew me as being funny before,” Mustafa told EW’s Kate Ward. “Because the only things I had done were these episodics and procedurals where I was kind of this tough guy, prison guard, cop, or FBI guy. So now, people are like, ‘Oh, he’s funny.’ That commercial … really helped me to climb that ladder of success.”
The commercial also invited an unexpected level of awareness from the public. “People in the industry recognize me. Other actors recognize me at auditions. [A TSA agent] at the airport said, ‘Are you that guy on the commercial? I saw you on the TV last night!’ I was kind of like, ‘You’re asking me questions? Shouldn’t you be, like, checking for bombs?’”
Mustafa told Variety that he just shot another Old Spice commercial, which is set to air in the coming months.

How to Make a Mutant: Splice’s Creepy Creature Evolves


Delphine Chanéac, left, plays Dren, a creature created by bioengineer Elsa Kast (played by Sarah Polley) in Splice.

In portraying the evolution of a lab specimen gone wild, the visual effects team for mutant thriller Splice drew from a 200-page style guide dreamed up by director Vincenzo Natali.

Creepy creature Dren, the genetically modified organism concocted in the film by a pair of risk-taking bioengineers, comes alive on-screen through a mix of digital add-ons, old-fashioned prosthetics and live performances by Delphine Chanéac and child actress Abigail Chu.

“It came down to the idea that we would do as much as we could with the real actor and replace only when it’s necessary,” visual effects supervisor Robert Munroe told Wired.com about the process. “We didn’t want Delphine and Abigail to become self-conscious about the fact that their legs were going to be replaced later or that the tail was going to be added.”

Even critics who slammed Splice, which opened last week, for devolving into standard-issue horror schlock midway through would probably admit the film includes some creepy and creative visual effects. Here’s a look at the making of a mutant.

Maynard James Keenan Talks New Tool, APC Albums



As Tool gets ready to hit the road on a summer tour, frontman Maynard James Keenan says that the band is still making progress on their first record since 2006, while he also is plotting a new album from A Perfect Circle. Keenan says that he understands that fans don't like the long wait between Tool records, but the band takes its time and doesn't rush into finishing projects.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said, "Most bands get into a contract and are forced to put out a third record before they're ready. And generally speaking, that third record always ends up being about the road, a lawsuit or the press because they don't have anything to talk about. They haven't lived their lives."

A Perfect Circle, the band Keenan formed with guitarist/songwriter Billy Howerdel, is also working towards their first release since 2004's mostly-covers record Emotive. "We've got some riffs and some music. It's just basically playing it over and over again while driving and waiting for things to fall into place," Keenan told RS.

When it comes to this summer's Tool tour, Keenan says that if they have a few new songs completed, they may test them out live. Mostly he joked to Rolling Stone about the tour, saying that, "There might be all new visuals. I've been practicing my power slides watching Bruce Springsteen." Keenan also cracked that, "Maybe I'll just come out in my birthday suit. A 46-year-old naked dude running around onstage. Lets see how that goes over."

Talking to MTV UK, the "Eclipse" cutie tells, “The fame makes my life so much easier where it’s most important to me, because I get to do really awesome projects right now. It looks much crazier on the outside than it is.”

Meanwhile, Kristen still has her problems with social networking, as she explains, “It’s just too connected. They can just basically reach out and touch you. I feel about the most interesting thing about me is that I do these movies. More than that. it’s just complete narcissism.”

“You start giving stuff away — then they’re not going to stop asking,”“There’s not a satisfied point that you can ever reach, so why start.”

Jim Carrey's gay sex scene in 'I Love You Phillip Morris'



Over a year ago we got a chance to read about the "graphic gay sex scene" in I Love You Phillip Morris, the gay con caper starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor that's been denied a U.S. release date yet again. But, what's this, the scene has surfaced?

Of course it has. This is the Internet, after all, and Morris has already premiered in other countries. The blog LA Rag Mag tipped us off the scene was out there, but didn't provide an embeddable clip, so we went out and got one.

It's not as graphic as we thought it would be, but it's still probably NSFW, and will shock staid American audiences.

It won't embed, but you can watch the video at the source.

Amanda Seyfried asks Leo to be her daddy, insults him in the process

Now how can someone like Amanda , who hardly has been in any worth-watching movie yet , say something so weird to someone like Leonardo DiCaprio? It turns out this young actress from “Mama Mia” fame has awkwardly insulted her boss, Leo ! Leonardo is producing an upcoming movie Red Riding Hood , and Amanda is the lead in it .During a shoot , she “suggested” Leo to be her dad in the movie , Leo first thought she was talking about being the male lead , but then she cleared it up by saying she wanted him to be her dad in the movie. I mean could you get any more awkward with an actor who has worked for years now to make this big a name for himself and you just entered the movie scene ? The actress said “Unfortunately he’s not in it. I asked him if he would play my dad but he got insulted! He said, ‘I don’t do male leads in love stories any more’. And I said, ‘I wasn’t talking about the male leads, I was talking about my dad. You’re what, 35? Age yourself up a bit!’”. Now I don't know if she was trying to be adorably funny or just down-right rude to the guy , either way Leo felt insulted .

Lindsay's Nightmare: Real Police and Fashion Police!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

At least in prison, Lindsay Lohan wouldn't have to worry about not having anything to wear.

Plus, those trendy orange jumpsuits would look great with that mysterious flashing red light, you know, the one that's put La Lohan back in seriously hot water.

We're hearing from a very fashion-forward insider that LiLo hasn't exactly had the best luck lately when it comes to getting designers to lend their clothes to flaunt on the red carpet—one company even put a ban on the broad.

Then how the heck did LL end up wearing their blinged-out jumpsuit to Sunday's MTV Movie Awards?

"They would never let her wear it. Designers don't want her to be seen in their clothes," our stylish spy dishes upon discovering Lohan donning the flashy frock.

Seems at least a few companies will let the one-time designer darling purchase clothing, jewelry, etc. but refuse to gift her goodies or let her borrow clothes.

And that, my friends, is a fate far worse than a fashionable SCRAM accessory or relaxing stint in the big house—at least as far as L.L. is concerned.

Our super-chic source tells us the outfit wasn't checked out for Linds, but for a star with way more designer cred: Katy Perry. Somehow though K.P. wasn't the one who ended up wearing it and Linds was able to snatch it from her.

Too bad—maybe if Linds hadn't landed an outfit she might have stayed home that night instead of hitting up Perry's after-party at Las Palmas where her SCRAM bracelet was going bonkers.

"Everyone at the party saw the flashing light," an eyewitness again dishes to us. "People actually started laughing about it. No one knew exactly what it meant, but no one was surprised, she looked like a mess. Once the flashing started going off Lohan looked panicked and ran straight to the bathroom."

Of course, if you're living in crazy Lohanland it was only flashing red because her friend put a red bracelet in her boot. But that excuse isn't flying with Judge Revel, or the folks who read the SCRAM reports.

A spokesperson for the device told E! their confirmation process includes an evaluation that "ensures" there is no chance that an alcohol alert is anything but consumed alcohol.

Sorry Linds, but we're over reading your tweets for clarification on these dicey matters. From now on we're going straight to the source: Lohan's SCRAM.

Seriously, how is her ass not in jail already?!

Documentary Highlights the French New Wave


The new documentary Two in the Wave details the creative lives and volatile friendship of two star filmmakers of the French New Wave days—François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. Utilizing interview footage, newsreels, and excerpts from some of the pair’s major films, producer/director Emmanuel Laurent and screenwriter Antoine de Baecque have gathered up some of the excitement that surrounded the debuts of these two gifted and original filmmakers.

Truffaut’s first feature The 400 Blows, which premiered at Cannes in 1959, vividly marked the onset of the New Wave. Blows was closely followed by Godard’s unique Breathless, based on a Truffaut story. Filmmaking had entered a new era.

The Evil Exes of 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' Make Their Movie Poster Debut



Good news if you collect movie posters: "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" now has a total of eight - one sporting Ramona's main man Scott and seven all-new posters displaying her evil exes.

Universal's new posters feature stars Satya Bhabha as Matthew Patel, Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, Mae Whitman as Roxy Richter, Shota Saito and Keita Saito as Kyle and Ken Katayanagi and Jason Schwartzman as Gideon Graves.

The posters are pretty straightforward, featuring imposing body shots of each ex along with their number of succession in Scott's quest to man up and conquer the past. If the movie copy were removed and bio and some power stats were thrown on the back, the posters seem like they'd work well as promotional trading cards - or perhaps filecards on action figure packaging. You thinking what I'm thinking Universal and Mezco? See all seven posters after the jump.

Nicki Minaj Sued over Lambo

Rapper Nicki Minaj banged up a rented Lambo to the tune of nearly $12,000, according to a lawsuit filed by the rental car company.

The plaintiff, Hollywood Exotic Car Rental, claims Minaj agreed to rent a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago -- at the rate of $1,750 a day -- to shoot her "Massive Attack" music video.

But according to the suit -- filed today in L.A. County Superior Court -- the exotic car was driven "off-road" and damaged "in the approximate amount of $11,589.41." Plus, they allege, Minaj didn't pay three days rent on the car -- that's another $5,250.

The rental company is suing for unpaid rental charges, property damage, and punitive damage.

Fox News Gives Diagnosis on Lady Gaga, from a Psychologist...



Maybe Lady Gaga should stick with the Yankees.

Photos showed the pop music star in the Citi Field crowd Thursday, making an obscene gesture during the opener of a day-night doubleheader between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres.

It was unclear what prompted the obscene gesture from a luxury suite. The Mets say the singer did not attend the second game.

Known for her wild wardrobe and songs such as "Paparazzi," Lady Gaga grew up in New York going to Yankees games with her father. She was in town this week for her sister's high school graduation.

Joel Silver is Developing a Blockbuster Version of Don Quixote

by Alex Billington



Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Uh oh, Terry Gilliam is going to be pissed. Pajiba reports that Joel Silver and Warner Bros are fast-tracking a new Don Quixote project as an upcoming tentpole movie. Word is that it's being described as a Pirates of Caribbean-style swashbuckling version of the story in which "we discover that Don Quixote isn't crazy and that there is, in fact, a fantasy world." Wait, what? Apparently the pitch is just now going out to writers, so it'll be a while before they craft it into a screenplay and actually get the ball rolling, but it sounds like Silver wants this soon. The Don Quixote story was originally written by Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century.

As we all know, Terry Gilliam has been working on re-creating his own infamous Don Quixote adaptation, now known as The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. In the original novel, a "retired country gentleman" in his fifties named Don Quixote de la Mancha decides to go on an adventure, aided by his squire Sancho Panza, and ends up in all kinds of fun along the way before returning home. I'm not that intimately familiar with the story so it's hard to say I'm excited for either version, but for now I'd rather see what Gilliam will come up with first. Hopefully he gets underway much sooner than this adaptation does.

Die Hard 5 to be a John McClane/Jack Bauer crossover?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Rumours suggest that Die Hard 5 could star Bruce Willis and Kiefer Sutherland. And just wait until you see what it might be called...

The Hollywood rumour mill throws out some bizarre stories on occasions. Over the last day or two, an unnamed source told Aint It Cool News that the title for the fifth John McClane action saga would be, oddly, Die Hard 24/7.

The story goes that Bruce Willis was so inspired by Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables ("He went gaga for it," Sly reportedly said), that it has encouraged him to press on with a new Die Hard film with the harder edge of the earlier trilogy.

Now, further rumours have surfaced that Fox was considering making a John McClane/Jack Bauer crossover adventure, which explains the thinking process behind the curious/shit Die Hard 24/7 title.

It's a plausible story, and the thought of seeing Bauer and McClane's characters teaming up for a joint adventure is an appealing one, but is there any truth to behind the rumours? Only time will tell. More news on this as we get it

NEW MARK RONSON VIDEO

Mark Ronson and the Business Intl, 'Bang Bang Bang' -- Video Premiere


When Mark Ronson decided to record the ultimate summer jam, he certainly called in a great supporting cast. His new single, 'Bang Bang Bang,' was co-written with the Kaiser Chiefs' Nick Hodgson and features the talents of rapper Q-Tip and electro artists MNDR. The synth-heavy tune is the first single from Ronson's forthcoming album, 'Record Collection,' and now the guitarist/producer has a video to match it.

"'Bang Bang Bang' takes place on a TV show in an unknown country in an unknown time period with an unknown cast of characters," Ronson tells Spinner. "In fact, it's a lot like 'Lost,' but with a better ending. The only thing you need to know is that somewhere in this world, Q-Tip, MNDR and myself are performing the most exciting song ever. And for 3:50, people from all over the galaxy are having the time of their life."

M.I.A.'s Cover Article in Billboard Magazine



During "Space," the dreamy future-shock ballad that closes her upcoming third album, M.I.A. repeatedly coos, "My lines are down/You can't call me," over a gently percolating beat that sounds like a Sega Genesis practicing its pillow talk. It's just one of the many observations on our data-drenched Infotainment Age that crop up throughout "/\/\ /\ Y /\," a stunning, more-or-less self-titled effort from the 34-year-old Sri Lankan native born Maya Arulpragasam. Yet in a telephone interview with Billboard last week, the lyric is taking on another, more literal meaning, as M.I.A. travels on a Eurostar train from Brussels to London during a hectic round of European promotion. Namely, her cell phone keeps dropping our call whenever her train enters a tunnel.

Women Kill Men Who Sexually Harass Them In New Video Game



I have never been sexually harassed. Walking down the street, I have never had a stranger say anything suggestive or complimentary about my appearance (though one night last summer a homeless man in Midtown Manhattan did sneer “Nice get-up” as I passed by in yellow shorts and a bright blue polyester shirt with a huge collar).

So when I first tried Hey Baby, a new Web game that takes aim at catcalling and its practitioners, I thought it was not meant for me. Developed by the New York artist and producer Suyin Looui, Hey Baby at first appears to be a self-consciously ridiculous revenge fantasy for women who have felt oppressed or threatened by sexual attention or commentary from men. Think of “Death Wish” with a woman walking home from work in the role of Charles Bronson.
