Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy call it a day

Image and video hosting by TinyPic



PRINCE Harry and his long-term girlfriend Chelsy Davy have SPLIT, the News of the World can reveal.

Chelsy is moving to South Africa this week to begin a legal career and has told him they are OVER.

The pair have had an on-and-off relationship for six years but friends say the spark has finally gone.

Blonde Chelsy, 24, told friends yesterday: "We're finished. This is a new beginning for me. I want to start my career in South Africa where I plan to spend the rest of my life. I don't want to live in Britain."

Heiress Chelsy, who is originally from Zimbabwe, looked happy in a stunning red frock yesterday, right, as she drank champagne with best friend Bubble - Olivia Perry - and a pal at Royal Ascot. Bubble supported Chelsy when she and Harry, 25, had a trial separation in 2007.

Chelsy sobbed her heart out to her last year too when she got tired of his playboy antics and dumped him.

They have not been seen together in public since Harry got his helicopter pilot's wings on May 7. An insider said: "It was a gradual end to the relationship. It whimpered out.

"It's not practical with Harry's commitments to the Army and his family to be in a relationship with someone in a different country. It was an obvious time for a clean break. The spark is gone and she's focused on moving back to be where her heart lies."

Our source added: "She was distraught when they split last year but it's different now. She knows she did everything to make it work."

Chelsy had been due to begin a contract as a trainee solicitor at the London law firm Allen & Overy in September. But those plans are off.

The insider said: "They are still friends and will always have a special place for each other."

Harry believes his late mum Diana would approve of his charity work in Africa. He told ITV in Lesotho: "I like to think she would be proud."

He added: "There is not a day I don't think of my mother when I'm here in Africa."

James Franco Would Be Happy To Play '100 Gay Roles'



James Franco is ready to take on as many gay roles as he can, provided they are good.

Franco plays quintessential beat generation poet Allen Ginsberg in the film Howl. Ginsberg was one of the first openly gay celebrities, going so far as to list his lover, the poet Peter Orlovsky, as his spouse in his Who's Who entry, and often advocated for gay rights.

He said he doesn't care much if the gay roles he's played and the gay characters he's portrayed in his films lead people to believe he's gay.

“The worst downside, and I don't consider this a downside, the worst thing that anybody could say is that I was gay and if somebody said that I guess they would be wrong,” Franco said.

The 32-year-old Franco, who is expected to reprise his role of artist Franco on ABC's General Hospital later this year, added that he'll take on “100 gay roles.”

“I would be happy to play 100 gay roles as long as they were always good parts,” he said.
Franco has been dating actress Anha O'Reilly for several years.

Stella McCartney
and her husband Alasdhair Willis are expecting their fourth child. Congrats!!

A source close to Stella told the Daily Mail newspaper:

“Stella loves the idea of having a close-knit family, just like the one she grew up in.

“She’s a great mum. She has been telling all her friends the good news.”


Just recently Stella – who has three sisters, Heather, Mary and Beatrice, and a brother, James - revealed she was looking forward to some time off from being pregnant, but confessed she was thinking about extending her family.

“I’m kind of interested in having more children. Though right now I feel like I’ve only just stopped having them, so I’m ready to have a bit of a break first.”

Guess that didn't work out quite as planned. :)

Like your internet free? The Obama administration doesn't.

Not quite celebrity related, but we all use the internet and no major news network is reporting on this yet.




Is cyberspace about to get censored?

Confronting threats ranging from Chinese superhackers to the release of secret documents on WikiLeaks and other whistleblowing websites, the Obama administration may be on the verge of assuming broad new powers to regulate the Internet on national-security grounds.

The powers are granted to the White House under a bipartisan bill that was introduced in the Senate only last week but is already moving quickly through Congress toward passage. The legislation has generated considerable buzz on tech blogs—but drawn little notice so far by major news organizations.

The bill would grant President Obama the power to declare a “national cyber-emergency” at his discretion and force private companies tied to the Web, including Internet service providers and search engines, to take action in response—moves that could include limiting or even cutting off their connections to the World Wide Web for up to 30 days.

Collapse )

The bill would create a new federal agency, the National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications, within the Department of Homeland Security, with a director who would require Senate confirmation.

The center would work with private companies involved in what is described in the bill as “critical infrastructure”—a list including companies involved with electric grids, telecommunications networks and the Internet—to come up with emergency measures in the event of a crisis. Under the bill, the White House could demand that the emergency measures be put into place, including restrictions on their access to the Internet, if the president declared a national cyber-emergency.

What odd timing! That internet feed of the gushing oil spill is just killing Obama's numbers. I'm not even going to post that liberty/security quote from Mr. Franklin - I think it's pretty obvious the country is complicit in letting this stuff just happen to it anymore. HOPE AND CHANGE 4EVER!!!

Chris Klein Checks Into Rehab

 

Chris Klein Checks Into Rehab | Chris Klein 

Following his second alcohol related arrest, actor Chris Klein has voluntarily checked himself into rehab.

"After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone," his rep Jaime Primak tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. "He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so."

The actor is seeking treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah where he will complete a 30 day alcohol addiction program and has plans to stay longer if need be.

Last Wednesday the American Pie actor was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drunk driving when he was seen weaving on the Hollywood Freeway.

top 10 songs about new york

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Ah, New York. The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. While these are phrases you’ll almost never hear a native New Yorker say, it’s clear to anyone that NYC’s impact on the global community can’t be overlooked. It’s been the undisputed financial, political, and cultural center of the world for the last century and shows no signs of giving up the title. Just try and look for an apartment there.

Throughout the five boroughs, New York has been both a home and source of inspiration for many musicians over the years. There are few (if any) cities that have been written about as much as New York has. But which songs belong at the top? Which numbers show the style and the swagger? The class and the crass? Which can move between the skyscrapers and the subway?

You’re probably wondering: Why celebrate New York now? Shouldn’t you have posted this after the Yankees won last year? Yes, the opportunity seems a bit late, but not really if you think about it. New York thrives on “keeping it real” and trademarks itself on setting the precedent for everything. So, to answer your question, there is never a better time to write about New York City. Simply because, New York City always “is.”

Beck, Broken Social Scene Play Fake Bands on Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


In the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, titular character Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) is the bassist of a band called SEX BOB-OMB. So it follows that the comic-book adaptation would feature a whole ton of music. As previously reported, the filmmakers recruited Beck to write all the songs for SEX BOB-OMB. The movie's soundtrack album, due August 10 from ABKCO, features four songs from SEX BOB-OMB, with Beck providing the instrumentation and actors from the movie doing the vocals.

The soundtrack album will also feature unreleased jams from Beck himself, Metric, and Broken Social Scene, credited to the fictional band Crash and the Boys. There's also classic material from T. Rex, the Rolling Stones, and Broken Social Scene again ("Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl" counts as classic now, right?) Plus the 1997 track "Scott Pilgrim" by the Canadian band Plumtree, which inspired comic creator Bryan Lee O'Malley to name his creation in the first place.

LA Film Fest Conversation With Edgar Wright Reveals 9 Minutes Of Scott Pilgrim

As part of the Los Angeles Film Festival, director Edgar Wright sat down for a "conversation" tonight with none other than J.J. Abrams in front of a full-capacity audience in a movie theater in downtown L.A. Running for nearly two-and-a-half hours, the audience was given a retrospective of Wright's entire film career, from Hot Fuzz to short films he made when he was fourteen. But with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World due out in August, everyone knew that they would get to see at least some of the film by the end of the night. We didn't leave disappointed.

Though the film still isn't completely finished, Edgar Wright showed off nine minutes of the upcoming comic-book adaptation to eager fans. Largely featuring Chris Evans' role in the film, as superstar actor Lucas Lee, the clip was an extended version of what was revealed during the MTV Movie Awards plus a whole bunch more. Though I don't have the video (that would be illegal, folks) and I doubt the whole thing will be released online, I am more than happy to tell you exactly what occurs via my copious amount of notes.

I don't know if it's possible to get more excited for this! "O Katrina!" never gets old, it's a pleasant surprise to see that on the soundtrack.

Heidi and Spencer Divorce... The Real Deal??

Heidi Montag is so serious about ending her marriage to Spencer Pratt, she's already lawyered up and she has a game plan.



We've learned Heidi has picked Jodeane Farrell to handle her divorce and this lawyer isn't playing games ... she's already taking steps to get the quickest divorce possible in California.

Farrell -- who has practiced family law for 24 years and currently handles divorce mediations -- will be setting up a meeting with Heidi and Spencer in approximately two weeks. We're told both Heidi and Spencer want the divorce mediated -- meaning the two will try and hash out a property settlement privately, wait the six months required by California law, and end their marriage.

Heidi wants Farrell to be the mediator, provided Spencer is down with it.  Farrell is a longtime friend of the Montag family, but she tells TMZ she doesn't think there will be a problem in mediating the deal.

Farrell plans to meet with Heidi and Spencer together, and if he's on board she'll schedule a meeting with their accountant to go over assets and liabilities. 

And Farrell says ... so far things are "very amicable" between Heidi and Spencer. 


We'll see what happens in 6 months :p

american idol lowers age range to 15

American Idol is lowering its eligibility age for Season 10, allowing 15-year-olds to audition for the first time. The show previously had a 16-to-28 age limit.

"A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16," executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz tells USA TODAY's Bill Keveney. "Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool." Idol Chatter chief Brian Mansfield analyzes how this might affect the contest here.

Auditions kick off in Nashville on July 17, followed by Milwaukee, New Orleans, East Rutherford, N.J.; Austin and San Francisco.

Mad Men Season 4 poster is here!



The message being conveyed by Mad Men‘s season 4 key art is clear: Don Draper is starting over.

Of course, nice as the exclusive first look above is, we didn’t really need a poster to tell us that. Last season ended with the ad man experiencing a major tectonic shift in both his personal and professional lives. Not only did he bolt Sterling Cooper to form his own upstart, he agreed to give Betty a divorce.

As exec producer Matthew Weiner recently told Entertainment Weekly, the new season — beginning July 25 — will find Don & Co. contemplating, “Who am I?”

“It’s about stripping away the things these people think define them,” explained Weiner. “Once they’re taken away, they just may have to look at who they really are.”

What do you think of the poster? Did anyone else pick up on the exhibitionist subtext? More or less compelling than last season’s image of Don sitting in an office filled with water?

Robert Pattinson: Bored with Twilight Fame

He’s become one of the most famous actors in the entire world thanks to his part in the “Twilight” film frenzy, but Robert Pattinson says he’s getting tired of the whole shtick.

The “Remember Me” actor told press he’s looking forward to being done with his role as Edward Cullen when “Breaking Dawn” is done filming.

“It can get a little boring. The good news is that the whole thing is done in seven months. I’ve learned to let it go a bit, but I’m still really bothered by it. The more you are exposed, the more people irrationally hate you.”

“I think we reached a point, a peak, with New Moon where the stories became so saturated into the culture that it started to feel normal. It’s like the tabloids don’t know what to write anymore because they’ve used up all their scandals.”

CRAY-CRAY's View on GAGA



If you want to get a bead on the state of feminism these days, look no further than the ubiquitous pop star Lady Gaga. Last summer, after identifying herself as a representative for “sexual, strong women who speak their mind,” the 23-year-old Gaga seemed to embrace the old canard that a feminist is by definition a man-hater when she told a Norwegian journalist, “I’m not a feminist.  I hail men!  I love men!”  But by December she was praising the journalist Ann Powers, in a profile in The Los Angeles Times, for being “a little bit of a feminist, like I am.” She continued, “When I say to you, there is nobody like me, and there never was, that is a statement I want every woman to feel and make about themselves.” Apparently, even though she loves men — she hails them! — she is a little bit of a feminist because she exemplifies what it looks like for a woman to say, and to believe, that there’s nobody like her.

Mariana Klaveno sinks her teeth into "True Blood"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The white-hot HBO series "True Blood" has exploded into the pop-culture arena over the past two years, fueling the international vampire obsession. But unlike its "Twilight" counterpart, "True Blood" isn't afraid to show the sizzlingly sexy and graphically violent, placing it at the decidedly grown-up end of the blood-sucking spectrum.

Since the beginning of the series, actor Mariana Klaveno has been in some of the grisliest and steamiest scenes of them all -- as Lorena, the vampire who turned Bill Compton into Vampire Bill during the Civil War and who continues to fight with Sookie Stackhouse for his love. The role has required Klaveno, whose brooding, feline beauty seems to effortlessly morph from charming to cruel in a flash, to flesh out a character who relishes in the bloodsport of being a vampire, unlike Bill. And though she's a true villain in the fictional Southern setting of Bon Temps, La., Lorena is driven by an unrequited love, making her unexpectedly relatable.

As the series returns for its third season, Klaveno talked to Back Stage about the freedom of embodying a supernatural being, avoiding the urge to Google herself, and why she held onto her restaurant job through the second season.

"True Blood" officially renewed for a fourth season...in case you were worried or something



As "True Blood" fans know, waiting sucks. But at least HBO isn't making fans wait to find out if their favorite vampire soap opera will be back for a fourth season.
 
On Monday (June 21), HBO announced that "True Blood" has been renewed for a 12-episode fourth season, set to begin production early next year and premiere in the summer of 2011.
 
"The new season of 'True Blood' is off to a terrific start, as enthusiasm for this unique show continues to build among both subscribers and critics," says HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo. "We're looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year."
 
The third "True Blood" season premiered on June 13 and drew 5.1 million viewers for its first airing, not quite a record for the bloodsucking series, but up 38 percent from last summer's season premiere.
 
"I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue working with this amazing cast and crew," states Alan Ball, who developed the series from Charlaine Harris' novel series. "This is the most fun I have ever had."
 
A two-time Golden Globe nominee for Best Television Series, Drama, "True Blood" features an ensemble cast including Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard and more.

Anna Kendrick: West Hollywood Hottie



Making the most of a beautiful afternoon, Anna Kendrick was spotted shopping on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood on Saturday (June 19).

The “New Moon” cutie was joined by a male friend as she browsed several stores and boosted the SoCal economy.

She continued, “I kind of eat anything, so I guess I have to work on that. But all in moderation. When I was in the UK, I had scones with clotted cream, which is like pure fat, but a lot of fat is delicious, so I couldn’t help myself.”

Dan Radcliffe recalls major Deathly Hallows scene while touring Hogwarts


MTV has posted a much longer version of the interview starting at this link. Dan talks about playing Harry Potter in another form.. among other things!

MTV took a tour of Hogwarts Castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Orlando with Dan Radcliffe, and during the interview Dan had this interesting bit to say about a big scene during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

Radcliffe himself was flooded with memories while standing there. The room most reminded him of the end of "Chamber of Secrets," in the scene with Richard Harris' Dumbledore and Jason Isaac's Lucius Malfoy. But he also said that the office plays a part in a scene audiences have yet to see. "One of the key scenes in the series happens in this room, where towards the end of ['Deathly Hallows'], Harry learns something about Snape's past in relation to him, and that takes place in this room. In fact, actually, it takes place pretty much here," he said, motioning to where he was standing. "And that is kind of pretty much possibly the key scene in the series, you might say. There's a certain argument for that."

yer a wizard, 'arry

"The Prince's Tale" is the one scene i'm most excited about tbh. i hope they do a really good job with it and don't fuck it up like they did with "snape's memory".

legolas and miranda kerr engaged


 
We've heard it before. This time, it's true.
After three years of dating, genetic lottery winners Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are making it official, as the actor's rep confirms to E! News that the duo is engaged.

The pretty couple first hitched their stars to each other back in 2007, the same year Aussie supermodel Kerr became a Victoria's Secret Angel and Brit Bloom said goodbye to his goatee and made his final outing as a pirate.
There's no word yet on how or where the question was popped, but it may have been a very recent development: it was only Friday that a then-ringless Kerr was spotted jetting off to New York.

No date has yet been set for the vow swap, which will be the first for both the 27-year-old catwalker and the 33-year-old thesp. But whenever it happens, we're certain that just like these two lookers, it'll be a beautiful thing.

Cordon bleu chef Kelis talks about cooking and eating delicious foods



I'm a really emotional cook. Not violent, but I don't like someone coming in while I'm cooking. I'm notorious for themed dinner parties. The colour green, The Sopranos' last episode… any excuse. But if anyone arrives before I'm ready and walks through for a chat, I'm like: "Just stand back. Stay there! In fact, just go – this is not for you."

The album Kelis Was Here sucked the life out of me and so I went off and studied to be a cordon bleu chef. What's great about food is that it's less about who you know and what you look like, and more about if you're any good.

At the launch party for Flesh Tone I was judged on the album and my cooking. I prepared all the food – duck confit salad, coconut lobster soup, fried red snapper, ribeye, mango mousse en toile, chocolatey Grand Marnier bread pudding. Getting it wrong is not an option.

If I ate half a peanut now my throat would close up, my face would cover with welts and I'd have to take an adrenalin shot then rush to A&E. I can smell a peanut across a room. The problem's when it's masked by hot spices. I ate in an Indian restaurant in Switzerland and afterwards I turned around and the passengers in my car screamed: "Oh my god – your face!"

As a child I'd help my mum cook and it was ridiculous – she had the correct gadget or utensil for everything. "Stop! Don't use that, I have exactly the right utensil." After I left home I survived on cup-a-meals and never saw myself as being like her. Now I've become her. In LA I have a kitchen full of kitchenware, and closets full and they're in other rooms, too. My favourites are zesters, pasta makers, piping bags and wire cake brushes.

I have texture issues. I don't like anything strangely chewy. The taste of oyster is actually great, but to feel an oyster, or a clam, in my mouth – no, no, no, it's too weird.

My milkshakes? I wasn't sure how I'd feel about breastfeeding, but quickly realised its brilliance.

I eat cold food in studios – it doesn't make me sleepy. Eating warm soothes me too much. I eat ginger, religiously, as a natural lozenge for my vocal cords. When I finish a stage performance, a glass of red wine's first, then I'm ravenously hungry. The problem's doing a 3am club performance. Eating late gives me reflux.

Salmonella poisoning is the worst sickness, ever. I turned green, literally. My body was so poisoned they thought my appendix had exploded.

My father was a strict vegetarian. I guess he wanted me to be too, but my grandmother gave me a chicken doner and it was all over – I became a meat-eater, full-on. Zero guilt. My last supper would be a charcuterie smorgasbord with every kind of meat, and sauces to dip them in. When I get through this album's cycle I want to develop a Kelis sauce range. I'm a saucy saucier.

Michael Shannon and Jamie Chung Join Upcoming JGL Thriller



Michael Shannon will play the villain in "Premium Rush," a Columbia thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Jamie Chung is in negotiations to play the female lead.

"Rush" centers on a New York bike messenger (Gordon-Levitt) who picks up an envelope at Columbia University, only to be chased throughout the city by a dirty cop desperate to get his hands on it.

Shannon plays the deceptively affable cop with a violent temper. Chung would play Gordon-Levitt's ex, a fellow daredevil bike messenger who helps him outwit the cop.

David Koepp wrote the script with John Kamps and is directing. Gavin Polone is producing.

Shannon appears in "Jonah Hex" and is part of the ensemble cast of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire." He was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in 2008's "Revolutionary Road."

Chung appears in Columbia's Adam Sandler comedy "Grown Ups" and has Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" in the can. Chung also starred in ABC Family's "Samurai Girl." (And she was in "The Real World: San Diego," duh.)

Variety reported a couple of weeks ago that Dania Ramirez was cast in the female lead, so I'm not sure if both girls are in the movie, or Jamie is taking Dania's place. Either way, JGL lovers, feel free to hate on both of them.

SCREEN beauties Nicole Kidman and Gillian Anderson are set to appear in rival films about the life of the acclaimed war correspondent Martha Gellhorn.

While Gillian Anderson, 41, has been linked to a movie about Gellhorn for two years, it's now emerged that Nicole Kidman, 42, is also set to take on the role in another forthcoming flick.

Gellhorn, who was the third wife of Ernest Hemingway, died in 1998. Anderson has long harboured ambitions to play the role. However she has reportedly encountered obstacles when attempting to get the film off the ground. Now Nicole is on board for the rival movie Hemingway & Gellhorn.

Clive Owen is set to play Hemingway and filming is scheduled for next year.

Sam and Dean Winchester Character Designs from Supernatural Anime

We already know for sure that Japanese anime studio Madhouse is developing an animated version of cult TV series Supernatural. But are these leaked character sketches for demon-hunting brothers Sam and Dean Winchester? Signs point to yes.

AnimeNews reports that these images surfaced online after fans found them. They look very much like the art that's in the background of the Supernatural Animation logo, so it's likely that these character sketches are genuine -- though of course they may not be the final versions of what we'll see when the anime hits next year.

As thrilled as I am to see Sammy and Dean with anime hair, what I really want is some concept art of the monsters and demons they'll encounter.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor Announce More Reunion Tour Dates



Back in the day, a Godspeed You! Black Emperor show was the sort of experience that stuck to your soul. The Canadian instrumental collective would take to the stage in total darkness, rarely visible in much more than silhouette, rarely saying a word to the audience. Their long, slow pieces would build to gorgeous crests that would keep going forever. Their music, powerful on record, became undeniably emotionally stirring in a live setting, shared with a few hundred or a few thousand fellow pilgrims. And now, we will get to experience that again.

As previously reported, Godspeed have returned from their long hiatus. They'll headline and curate ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas festival, which comes to Minehead, England December 3-5 and boasts a bill that, impossibly, includes "Weird Al" Yankovic. And while the band is on that side of the pond, they'll also play a very short UK tour. European and American dates are promised as well.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor:

12-03-05 Minehead, England - ATP Nightmare Before Christmas
12-07 Manchester, England - Academy
12-08 Glasgow, Scotland - Barrowlands
12-12 Bristol, England - Ansom Rooms
12-13 London, England - Troxy

Even though he never makes an appearance, Bambi's offscreen bad guy, man, is No. 20 on the AFI's list of heroes and villains. Though Bambi survives his own encounter with man, viewers will always remember the first time the hunter comes on the scene. There is a mad rush across the forest and Bambi's mother tells her child to run. A shot rings out, and suddenly Bambi is all alone. His father arrives and informs him, "Your mother can't be with you anymore." It was enough to make some kids forswear hunting from that moment on. This scene still has the primal power to make grownups weep.

Washed Up Actor Val Kilmer Is The World's Worst Neighbor



The people in the New Mexico town where Val Kilmer lives hate him. They're holding up permits for turning his home into a bed & breakfast because he called them a bunch of killer drunks. Now the ACLU is involved!

Apparently Kilmer, whose recent credits include the dud MacGruber and eating himself into a stupor, wants to turn his 6,000-acre plot outside of Santa Fe into an upscale retreat for the well-to-do. However the towns people are holding up the necessary paperwork until he publicly apologizes for saying both "80% of the people in my county are drunk," and describing his part of the state as "the homicide capital of the Southwest" in magazine interviews. The townsfolk, who may or may not have pitchforks and torches, seem irrationally upset about these comments. The ACLU got wind of this and is defending Kilmer, because he should be able to say whatever the hell he wants about the homicidal boozers he surrounds himself with without having to fear retribution. The whole case is a little daffy, but we have to say it's the most interesting thing that has happened to Val Kilmer since Willow.

"Boondocks" takes on Tyler Perry



It’s not hard to guess what Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder thinks of Tyler Perry.

The episode of Boondocks that aired Sunday and promptly set Twitter ablaze is a thinly – no, make that barely – veiled satire, with Perry in its crosshairs.

In the episode, titled “Pause,” Huey and Riley’s grandfather decides to audition for a play put on by a “Winston Jerome.” In case there’s any doubt who McGruder is spoofing, the show opens with a scene from a “Winston Jerome” play in which he plays a sassy matriarch in a housedress and wig.

Sound familiar?

The barbs come out soon and don’t let up, and in fact dig in deeper. When Granddad pays a visit to the Jerome mansion he finds the charismatic figure and his minions performing “It’s All Right to Cross-Dress for Christ,” a la Tim Curry in The Rocky Horror Picture Show singing “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again.”

The episode casts the supposed Perry doppelganger as a control freak who cuts his cast members off from their families, and makes repeatedly reference to “Winston Jerome’s” taste for hunky young men who doff their shirts and apply liberal amounts of body lotion, a none-too-subtle commentary.

Did you watch the episode? This link works pretty quickly, in case you missed it. What do you think?

Doctor Who: Were you paying attention?


There were so many questions raised by this weekend’s Doctor Who, The Pandorica Opens, that we’ve mixed together some of yours and our theories in one place.

Let the questions and speculation begin, then. And don't blame us if most of this is wide of the mark. This is all speculation on our part, and our head was really hurting trying to put most of this together...!

Tori Spelling thinks that ex-90210 cast members care enough to hate her


Don't expect there to be any play-dates between Tiffani Thiessen's newborn daughter and the kids of her former 90210 costar Tori Spelling.

"She doesn't talk to me anymore," Spelling said of Thiessen on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Monday, while promoting her latest book Uncharted TerriTORI.

In fact, Spelling, 37, says with the exception of Jennie Garth, she is not in touch with any of her former 90210 pals.

"All my cast members hate me," she says. "People say, 'Do you mean during 90210?' I say, 'No, we were great friends during 90210. We were friends after 90210.' They all came to my first wedding."

But according to Spelling it all changed after she got remarried. "All of a sudden I marry Dean [McDermott], and I don't know what happened," she tells Seacrest. "I lost all my cast members."

For the record, Seacrest tells Spelling that Thiessen "never said anything bad about you – I think she likes you a lot."

Of the friend drama, Spelling adds, "It's my perception, and nonetheless, it's a fun story."

Marvel Planning Short Films To Introduce Secondary Characters?



Fans of Doctor Strange, Luke Cage and other second tier Marvel heroes might not have to wait much longer to see these characters on the big screen, as a new rumor suggests that the studio’s B-listers could wind up in theaters soon — though not necessarily in the manner you’re expecting.

The folks at Latino Review report that Marvel Studios is considering the idea of putting “10 minute short films in front of their feature length movies that will introduce secondary characters.” This follows on the CHUD report from April saying that Marvel was mulling over the idea of lower budget feature films starring these less familiar second tier characters. According to this latest rumor, Marvel is eyeballing an even more financially viable option by pursuing shorts and attaching them to big budget spectacles like The Avengers to draw new eyes to Marvel’s stable of heroes.

There’s nothing confirmed about the rumor at the moment, but I’m all in favor of the idea. The short film isn’t quite a lost art, but it’s one that doesn’t get enough mainstream play these days. Shorts focusing on Luke Cage and Iron Fist cleaning up the streets, or Black Panther ripping through a battlefield, or any number of other possibilities could be truly amazing to see on the big screen — not to mention a very nice way to break the ice towards a full-length feature film.

Eminem will be on Lettermen, E!, Access Hollywood and Kimmel!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's no mystery that two of the biggest music releases of the season are hitting stores within a week of one another. Last Tuesday saw the release of Thank Me Later, the eagerly-anticipated debut from the Canadian actor-turned-buzzed-about-MC Drake. This week sees the arrival of Eminem's latest album Recovery, the back-to-basics retort to his 2009 album Relapse. Hip-hop is on a high right now, which is why talk show bookers have embraced a form that generally gets ignored in late-night circles (unless you're watching Jimmy Fallon). This week's biggest highlight is on "The Late Show with David Letterman," as he will welcome both Eminem and Jay-Z on Friday (June 25). The pair will provide a possible preview to their tag-team concerts coming up at the end of the summer. It's sure to be a killer evening.

Yeah! Vuvuzela's Invading The World!

Zzzzz! Vuvuzelas attack Marlins/Rays — but cowbells forbidden
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A thunderous noise-making scandal hit Sun Life Stadium in Miami

A couple of Tampa Bay Rays fans — identified only as "Ernie and Shannon" by TV reporter Todd Kalas — tried to bring a pair of cowbells into the park. Cowbells, of course, have been the official noisemaker of the Rays since their World Series season of 2008.

"They told us they're not allowed in the stadium," Ernie said. "Cowbells are forbidden!"

So, after being denied at the gate, Ernie and Shannon returned their cowbells to their car, lest they be confiscated and tossed out by TSA Florida Marlins security.

Upon returning to the park, the couple was presented with vuvuzelas — the ear-shattering, soul-clobbering air horns that World Cup soccer fans in South Africa have turned into an international, ahem, sensation.

And the Fish were giving them away to fans. On purpose!

Vuvuzelas, if you've never had the pleasure, sound like a giant swarm of bees or the Indianapolis 500, or sound as if you're in a never-ending tailspin while strapped into a World War II-era airplane.

Players, coaches, managers and babies alike found the buzz in the air quite obnoxious
. Marlins slugger Dan Uggla(notes) said he wore earplugs. As did the umpiring crew.

"This isn't soccer," Uggla said. "I know the World Cup is going on, but this is baseball. We don't want to hear horns or anything like that. We want to hear the crowd cheering. We want to hear the crowd getting behind us, not horns." but you don't have any fans Marlins

And that was the most charitable review.

SNEAK PEEK: Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy on the Run in Paris

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The side entrance pops open with a bang and Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy – intent upon escaping their tour group tour – come bursting out, rushing down steps. The director, Tom Bezucha, shouts "Cut!," and the girls dissolve into giggles before, arms around each other, resuming their places for another take.

It was the scene at the Eiffel Tower early Monday morning as the shooting of Monte Carlo, a romantic comedy costarring Glee's Corey Monteith, set for release next year.

After seven weeks filming together inside Budapest studios, one on set source tells PEOPLE, they couldn't wait to get outside – even in near freezing temperatures. 'They really get along really well. You can see they've gotten to be friends on this ... It's like a trip that way. There's this chemistry and sometimes it's almost conspiratorial, but these girls really adore each other."

With Paris enduring unseasonably cold temperatures, Cassidy (who comes rushing barefoot down the steps in a light floral minidress, holding her platform heels) was immediately helped into a parka by Gomez while Meester stood by with her Uggs.

The film's plotline revolves around "one of those inexpensive travel packages to France that sound too good to believe – and turns out to be," another source on the set explains. Gomez, Gossip Girl's Meester and Taken's Cassidy "find themselves on one of those 'No Time To Lose' tours, with a terrible hotel and terrible food, and through a case of mistaken identity, wind up in Monte Carlo at a ball."

Monteith joins the cast next Monday for two weeks filming in Monaco.

Gomez, Meester and Cassidy arrived in Paris on Saturday and immediately went to work: At the airport. Cameras were already in place at Charles De Gaulle airport's Terminal 2E, as the trio arrived. Mirroring the experience of millions of tourists, cameras caught their arrival, Gomez in cowboy boots and jeans, struggling to reconnect with Cassidy at the baggage carousel, both meeting Meester on a skywalk and then boarding their fake Espirits de Corps Tours tour bus.

Taking them in her charge at the airport was popular French comedienne Valerie Lemercier, who plays their tour hostess.

Paris filming continues until Friday at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame locations.

tegan and sara run around a tree and skip and jump about + tegan pees anywhere



Sometimes, if I'm totally desperate I have been known to pee in an alley or behind a hedge. And not just when I'm drunk. Once I was driving to see a Dodgers game in LA and drank a grande shaken iced tea lemonade on the way. When we arrived in the parking lot I had to pee so badly that I couldn't wait to go inside the stadium. So I peed between two parked cars in full view of arriving Dodgers fans. Not my proudest moment. But when you got to go, you got to go.

Wrapping up a day in front of the cameras, Taylor Momsen was spotted leaving a photo shoot in New York City on Monday afternoon (June 21).

Clad in a black tank top, above-the-knee stockings and black Doc Martens, the "Gossip Girl" actress was quite displeased to find photogs awaiting her exit - as she gave them the middle finger before disappearing in the crowded city streets.

The sighting comes on the very same day in which Taylor's band, The Pretty Reckless, released their 4-track EP on iTunes.

Receiving solid reviews from multiple press outlets, Miss Momsen and her bandmates will be showing off their stage skills when they embark on the Vans Warped tour from June 25-August 15th.

NASA discover Doctor Who’s crack in the middle of the Milky Way



Daily Galaxy’s picture of the day reveals the huge MacGuffin in space

For those of you following this year’s season of Doctor Who, this picture of the day makes for some rather disturbing viewing. It appears that the constellation Sagittarius is featuring a huge stellar bit of graffiti.

And it looks rather like the crack in the Universe that’s been following Matt Smith and Karen Gillan around this year’s story.

So what is this crack? it’s “the core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems and may be harboring beastly stars in the process of forming.”

That’s ominous – a star devouring gap in the middle of the night sky… someone better call for The Doctor!

heather mills wants to go to the paralympics

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's ex-wife HEATHER MILLS has announced plans to try out for Britain's Paralympic skiing team.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The former glamour model, who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993, is training hard to enter the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Russia as a downhill skier.

Mills previously proved her athleticism by taking part in the figure skating TV series Dancing On Ice and she is now determined to win gold in the tournament for athletes with physical disabilities.

She says, "I've been skiing for many years and I'm much better at that than ice skating, so I'm training hard to try to get on the British Paralympic downhill team.

"If I manage to compete, it would be phenomenal - very inspiring for all the kids that I counsel. They didn't believe they could do anything and they are now trying ice skating and rollerblading and biking and swimming, which is wonderful... Having loved sport my whole life, competing in a Paralympics would be a dream come true."

Simon Cowell VS The World (Cup)

'X Factor' auditions clash with World Cup



X Factor fans have been asked to ditch England's World Cup campaign to watch the latest round of auditions.

The third day of London try-outs will take place at the Excel Centre on Wednesday, between 2pm and 5pm. England's third crucial group game against Slovenia kicks off at 3pm.

In a letter sent to fans with tickets, organisers Applause Store said: "The X Factor auditions will continue as planned. Choose Dermot and Simon over our boys in South Africa.

The judges and contestants are ready. All we wait for now are you, the audience."

A show source told The Sun that fans attending the auditions would be given updates on the latest events in the football match during the afternoon.

"The updates are unlikely to come from the judges - imagine if Ashley Cole scored. It would be a bit awkward," said the insider. "But the audience will be kept up to date in the breaks between filming."

We're Looking At You Brad Pitt: The Celebrity Double Standard




Where Are All The Bisexual Men? 

This weekend Vanessa Carlton followed in the footsteps of female celebrities like Lady Gaga, Anna Paquin, and Megan Mullally and came out as bisexual. Congrats! But why is this well-intentioned announcement always made by ladies? Aren't there any bi guys?

The funny thing about telling the world that you enjoy having sex with or are attracted to members of both sexes is that it is kind of like announcing to a room full of Americans that you are Canadian. Just like Canadians are basically Americans with a few subtle differences (healthcare, politeness, love of hockey) bisexuals are basically just straight people who like to get a little funky. Just look at Paquin and Mullally who are both in monogamous relationships with men. Sure, they might think about a little lady love every once in awhile, but they're basically in the same relationship as every other breeder on the planet. Lady Gaga admits that she's never actually let another woman ride on her disco stick, and her Sapphic proclivities seem to be a way to bind her closer to the gay community that she fights for and that continues to play remixes of every one of her singles at every one of their social gatherings.
 

Famous women coming out as loving both peen and vag is kind of nice, in a way. It may be a little meaningless, but it's like breaking in the public for hardcore homosexuals. If we can get all the right-wing crazies in the flat parts of the country to embrace people who like both sexes, maybe they'll get a little more comfortable with those who only jones for members of the same sex. Bisexuals are sort of like queer training wheels, weaning people off of their narrow vision of sexuality to open them up to the world of difference that exists outside of their "traditional marriage."
 

Bisexual women are especially powerful in this regard because people don't really care if a female has fluid sexuality. In fact, most straight guys would actually prefer imagining that Anna Paquin will not only sleep with them, but will bring her best girlfriend over for a three=way. Yes, there is nothing icky about lady-on-lady action. This is not true with male-on-male intercourse. People are not just disgusted by the people, they're disgusted by the act.
 

And that's why there are no essentially straight guys who come out as bi either to support gay rights (like Gaga) or for a little bit of a publicity bump (yeah, Vanessa Carlton, we're looking at you). We've been on Craigslist enough to know that bisexual men really do exist, but there aren't any in the public sphere because acknowledging that they have or have thought about bumping uglies with another dude would garner a collective, "Ew! You want to put that where?!"
 

Thanks in part to our famous bisexual women who are married to men, the world seems to think of bi women as ladies who will venture to the Sapphic side for fun or to please a man. Because butt sex is an unthinkable taboo for so many (especially men who have never tried it and don't know what they're missing), bisexual men are seen as gay guys who are clinging on to women so they won't seem too faggy.
 

It's a horrible double standard and it's one I think we should end. How? Well, we need some famous dudes to come out as bi. We know you're out there, guys. And even if you're not, can't you pull a Gaga and just pretend for the sake of the cause? Thanks!

Source

I could not think of any famous male bisexual. Google didn't help either. So far all the famous ones are strictly peen lovers. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It would be so nice if just one famous dude admitted to jumping to this side of the fence now and then. I mean come on already Zefron. Just tell us about band camp already......

P.S. Please try to keep this wank free and respectful

A.J. Cook could return for Criminal Minds for one episode

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Criminal Minds fans launched a massive campaign to bring back co-star A.J. Cook, whose option for next season wasn’t picked up, including setting up an online petition that has gathered more than 35,000 signatures and mailing thousands of lipsticks and file folders to CBS. Well, I hear she might be coming back in the fall but only for one episode.

CBS has been firmly standing by its decision to part ways with the actress, and there is no deal in place with her, but I hear showrunner Ed Bernero is behind the idea to get Cook back for one episode so her character JJ’s story could be tied up and given a proper exit. Cook had been largely quiet on the controversy besides tweeting a note to the show’s fans last week, thanking them for their support. Meanwhile, her co-star Paget Brewster is in discussions with CBS over the network's offer to keep her on the show as a regular but for reduced number of episodes.

Nikki Blonsky and She-Hoff Jr are "Huge"



Nikki Blonsky, best known as the lead songstress in the movie “Hairspray,” stars in the new series “Huge,” and wants to send the message that just because someone isn’t skinny doesn’t mean that they aren’t people too.

“Most of America doesn't have the money to have a trainer 24/7 and a meal service to bring you meals, because if they did, we'd all be a size 2,” Blonsky said to TheFrisky.com. “And that would just be too perfect.”

A far cry from her 1960s love-struck girl-next-door character in “Hairspray,” Blonsky plays blue-haired tomboy Wilhelmina “Will” Rader on the upcoming ABC Family series. Though “Huge” is about kids at a fat camp, she’s said that the show goes past the weight issue.

“Every single issue skinny people go through, plus-size people go through, too,” Blonsky said. “We're all human beings, and we have to remember that our looks are something that are only with us for a certain time. It’s our spirit that people will remember us for as time goes on and we grow older.”

Blonsky is keeping busy: She’ll be playing a single mom in “Waiting for Forever,” which co-stars Rachel Bilson, Blythe Danner and Richard Jenkins, which will be released this fall.

Slipknot bassist died from morphine OD

DES MOINES, Iowa – Autopsy results show the bassist for heavy metal band Slipknot died of an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl, a synthetic morphine substitute, police said Monday.

Paul Gray, 38, was found dead in a suburban Des Moines hotel room on May 25. A hotel worker told a 911 dispatcher that a hypodermic needle was found near Gray's body and that pills also were found in the room.

The autopsy shows he died of an overdose, Urbandale police said in a news release. They also said the autopsy revealed signs of significant heart disease.

No evidence has been found showing Gray had a prescription for the drugs, police spokesman Sgt. Dave Disney said. Police are trying to find out how Gray got them.

"There is no evidence that a doctor prescribed either one of those substances," Disney said.

Disney said charges are possible but that it is too early to discuss specifically what those charges could be.

A person answering the phone at Slipknot's record company, New York-based Roadrunner Records, declined to comment and said that there would be no official comment from the company or band until one is posted on the band's website. No such statement was posted on Slipknot's website as of late Monday afternoon.

Phone listings for his wife, Brenna Gray, and Corey Taylor, a founding member of the band, were not immediately found.

Gray was a co-founder of the Des Moines-based band known for its grotesque masks, thrashing sounds and aggressive, dark lyrics.

Slipknot emerged in the mid-1990s and its 1999 debut album sold about 2 million copies. The band won a Grammy in 2006 for best metal performance for the song "Before I Forget."
