Sorry bbs, turns out you don't have a chance to marry a ginger prince after all.

Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy 'are still together'

Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy are said to be continuing their relationship despite reports that they recently split.

The News of the World reported on Sunday that 24-year-old Davy ended the romance ahead of a move back to Zambia in order to pursue a career in law.

However, a source said that the couple expected the time apart and have not broken things off.

"They have not split up - News of the World jumped the gun," the insider told US Weekly.

"Harry knew for some while that Chelsy will be moving back to Zambia. There is no getting around that right now. What the newspaper failed to point out is that Harry's [Apache Attack Helicopter] conversion course begins next month, that continues for eight months, and there is a further eight months at the RAF Wattisham base. They would not have been together much even if she was staying in the UK."

The insider added: "They'll try to make it work because they are committed to each other still. Both have careers to think about, and it would be crazy for either to make sacrifices at this age."

A spokesman for Clarence House declined to comment on the prince's private life.

Kelly Brook 'steps out with Glee actor'

The model, 30, was spotted giggling and whispering until after midnight over dinner with Matthew Morrison, 31, who plays director Will Schuester in the hit US telly musical.

A fellow diner at stylish London restaurant The Wolseley said: "Matthew kept whispering in Kelly's ear and she was giggling like a schoolgirl. They looked extremely friendly - like they were on a date."

Kelly is believed to have split with toyboy Danny Cipriani, 22, following a series of rows over his move to Australia to play for Melbourne Rebels.

The beauty - who stripped for a £340,000 Playboy shoot on Friday - spent two hours with Matthew on Saturday night at the eaterie in Piccadilly.

The diner said: "Kelly looked absolutely gorgeous in an elegant dress. You could see Matthew was proud to be with her.

Yesterday Kelly's agent said she met Matthew in LA, but insisted they were just pals.

Hayden Panettiere is all smiles as she walks with her boyfriend, Wladimir Klitschko, on Monday (June 21) in West Hollywood.

The 20-year-old former Heroes hottie held hands with Wlad on their way out of Le Pain Quotidien.

Hayden is gearing up for her newest project, Scream 4. Emma Roberts also stars, and earlier this week, it was announced that Lauren Graham will be joining the cast!

Filming on Scream 4 begins Monday, June 28.

I hope they give her extensions for Scream because I'm not a fan of short haired chicks in horror movies.

Unprofessional Miley Cyrus messes up during the MMVAs

A very unprofessional Miley Cyrus messes up announcing Drake's performance during the MMVAs. She claims she couldn't read her cue cards. Instead of being a professional and improvising, instead choosing to act like a bossy diva, she announces "flip the cue card, I need to move this along!"

Miley, a professional would have been much more charming and been able to easily improvise that. A good actor wouldn't have missed a beat, as improvising workshops are something they've done many of. You aren't a good actor so instead let's blame it on the people who are letting you host the biggest event in Canada.

Miley, in one word: COW! Watch the video of her reading fail below.

“Annexed,” A Tale Of Anne Frank’s Fictional Sex Life Angers Frank's Family

A British novelist has angered the family of Anne Frank with a “sexed-up” imagining of her time in hiding from the Nazis.

The teenager documented her experiences during the German occupation of the Netherlands during the Second World War before her death in Bergen Belsen concentration camp aged 15.

Now Sharon Dogar, who specialises in novels for teenagers, has written a book of fictional diaries of Peter van Pels, Anne's close friend who lived in the same building while she was hiding in Amsterdam.

The diaries, which are to be published in the autumn, include graphic accounts of Peter’s desire for Anne and intimate scenes between the two, according to The Sunday Times.

The book has been criticised by Buddy Elias, Anne’s first cousin, who chairs a charity devoted to her memory. The 84-year-old, who lives in Switzerland, used to play with his cousin when they were youngsters.

Janelle Monae Covers MJ Fav “Smile” By Charlie Chaplin For Billboard’s Mashup Mondays

Said to be one of Michael Jackson’s favorite songs, and sung lovingly at his memorial a year ago almost exactly by his brother Jermaine, this week’s Mashup Monday goes all the way back to 1936 to famed silent film comedian Charlie Chaplin’s bittersweet “Smile” as sung sweetly with a jazzy twist by hip-hop/R&B/pop mashup-unto-herself Janelle Monae.

Butch Clothing Company Is Exactly What It Sounds Like

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Meet the Butch Clothing Company: "the first clothing line aimed at butch women."

Founder Shaz Riley says she's cherished the dream of her own clothing line for more than 25 years, telling the Guardian, "All those years of having to wear men's clothes will be behind me now. BCC will make a lot of butch women happy. If they have ever had to put up with negativity from people because of being butch, my clothes will give them the confidence to hold their heads up high."

We've written before about the challenge of finding typically masculine styling that actually fits the very different proportions of a woman's body; it's not easy. Says Riley, "Butches don't want to be or look like men; we just don't want to wear female clothing," and as such, her company, which operates online and through a Brighton-based consultation room, carries bespoke tees, pants, and shorts - and of course, formalwear. Seeing as it's custom, Riley's clothes don't come cheap - but there's every chance it's just one of the first to address a yawning gap in the market. One can only hope that the concept can gain the traction to extend to more physical stores, too; Riley - as well as style sites dedicated to the subject - comment on the difficulty of dealing with hostile or simply unhelpful sales staff when shopping for menswear. And while formalwear - and competent, sympathetic staff - might be most needed in those cases, such as civil ceremonies, in which someone's more inclined to pay custom-bucks, we're guessing customers are going to want these options all the time.

We'll let the site have the last word*: "The concept of our brand is simple. Butches are women; they are women who choose to wear men's clothing. Apparel is a major part of the butch identity. We aren't reinventing the wheel, just allowing our design team to create clothing based on classic male styles and the latest fashion trends."

(And, yes, Shaz will be sporting BCC at her upcoming nuptials.)**

But they waltzed together on Dancing With the Stars and everything!

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, a match made in ABC heaven just months ago, have ended their engagement, Pavelka's rep confirmed to E! News Monday, bumping the total of failed Bachelor couplings to 13 (if you don't count Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft).

"Jake and Vienna have split and appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time," the rep said in a statement.

Pavelka famously chose Vienna, who was public enemy No. 1 among the Bachelor roommates, over the more grounded Tenley Molzahn, to the consternation of many, prompting the usual cries of "It won't last!"

OK! was first to report this tragic split, which leaves flip-flopper Mesnick as the only Bachelor to lead his chosen one all the way to the altar, say what you will about his breakup to makeup style.

Girardi, 24, told E! News less than a month ago that she and Pavelka, 32, were aiming for a summer wedding next year, preferably on the beach or on an island somewhere.

But a rep for Greek star Gregory Michael confirmed to E! News that Girardi told him at a charity event that she and Pavelka had split up.

For its part in the drama, Warner Bros. Television said about the purported breakup: "As you know, we never comment on rumors and speculation."


Celebs and their Silly Bandz

One of the biggest iconic fashion divas of all time wears the finest jewelry on the planet and Silly Bandz? Yes.

During a recent interview on CBS' The Early Show, there Sarah Jessica Parker was reaching out her hand and lo and behold, there was an acid green, silicone bracelet -- probably a gift from her son, James Wilkie -- around her wrist. She's so influential that she made us all feel OK to mix our gifts from our childrens' new fave obsession, Silly Bandz, with our Timex, Kors, or Cartier watches.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's time to come up under your Pet Rock. Silly Bandz are the new, relatively inexpensive trend our kids are trading, wearing, and playing with and I'm happy. Haute rubberbands that are in the shape of letters, dinosaurs, religious symbols, you name it. It's a cheap alternative to Kooky pens, and stars like SJP and even Mary-Kate Olsen are mixing it up with their fine gems as part of a new look! I even got a tweet from the @sillybandz peeps telling me that reason they're the bomb right now is because "they rock."

I am partial to the 24 packs of Western shapes bands as well as the Alphabet, the Yankees and Rockbandz. I also like the neon colors for summer. Jump on this now because according to their site. They are retiring certain shaped bands. Spring is gone.

To purchase Silly Bandz, call 1.800.921.8661 or visit their Web site for more information.

Trailer for Two In The Wave (2010)

Two in the Wave is the story of a friendship. Jean-Luc Godard was born in 1930; Francois Truffaut two years later. Love of movies brings them together. They write in the same magazines, Cahiers du Cinema and Arts. When the younger of the two becomes a filmmaker with "The 400 Blows", which triumphs in Cannes in 1959, he helps his older friend shift to directing, offering him a screenplay which already has a title, A bout de souffle, or Breathless. Through the 1960s the two loyally support each other. History and politics separate them in 1968 and afterwards - when Godard plunges into radical politics but Truffaut continues his career as before. Between the two of them, the actor Jean-Pierre Leaud is torn like a child caught between two separated and warring parents. Their friendship and their break-up embody the story of French cinema.
Exploring the archives and the films of the two New Wave directors, and leafing through the press of the period, Two in the Wave, takes us back to a prodigious decade that transformed the world of cinema.


In semi-Justin Timberlake news:

Zuckerberg's Silver Screen Moment

The marketing blitz for this fall's The Social Network - known to most as simply The Facebook movie - started in earnest this weekend. Columbia Pictures cleverly kept it simple, revealing only the film's poster on a website aptly titled 500millionfriends.com, leaving bloggers to speculate on just what West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin has in store for billionaire co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has had no involvement in the movie's development.

The poster shows star Jesse Eisenberg, playing 'Zuck', glaring out under the slogan 'You Don't Get to 500 Million Friends Without Making A Few Enemies', in part a reference to the highly publicized legal troubles surrounding the founders of the social network.

Entertainment Weekly is right on the money with its description of young Eisenberg as 'looking very American Psycho' on the poster -- perhaps appropriate when you consider the script describes Zuckerberg as 'a sweet-looking 19-year-old whose lack of any physically intimidating attributes masks a very complicated and dangerous anger.'

A quick look at the Internet Movie Database page for The Social Network indicates we'll be treated to more than just two hours of Zuckerberg hunched over his computer in a Harvard dorm room. The cast list includes characters named 'Coke Girl', multiple 'Cocktail Waitress' roles, and 'Club 66 Stud'. And to further dispel any notion that The Social Network will be a geek flick, Justin Timberlake plays Napster co-founder Sean Parker. There is at least one Harvard grad among the cast for good measure: The Office star Rashida Jones, class of '97.

Despite not being scheduled for release until October, the Facebook movie is already generating Oscar buzz as well as concerns that Zuckerberg's reputation will take a beating, once old accusations that he stole the idea for the site from fellow students resurface.

Whether or not this week's marketing blitz results in big box office returns this fall, one thing's for sure: a film of this scale, backed by Hollywood power players, cements Facebook's status as the only social network with true pop culture cachet. Its former competitors are certainly flailing. The week this movie poster hit the web, MySpace co-president Jason Hirschhorn stepped down, while AOL spun off Bebo.

Sony Leverages ‘Big Gun’ Celebs For 3D Sets
Sony is bringing back the comedy stylings of Justin Timberlake and Peyton Manning to advertise its line of 3D television sets.

Timberlake and Manning were last featured in Sony advertising as two members of an “expert” panel talking about Sony products.
In one spot, the two celebrities faced off against each other in a Ping Pong match that featured them speaking Chinese to each other. In another, Timberlake sprouted animated eyes (like those in the movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), freaking Manning out.
“Justin and Peyton are part of the Sony marketing asset list,” Ari Weiss, creative director at agency 180 Los Angeles, which created the campaign, tells Marketing Daily. “So when we were looking at who we were going to use for these products, we wanted to use our biggest guns against the 3D products.”
In the new television commercial, Timberlake and Manning pay a visit to Sony’s Innovation Center (which has already hosted singer Taylor Swift to promote cameras and the sun to promote its Dash Internet device). During their visit, they observe Sony employees creating 3D movies, video games and sports programming. But when they take off their 3D viewing glasses, they and the world around them turn suddenly two-dimensional.

“They’re very charismatic,” Weiss says. “The camera turns on and they’re natural. You get the two of them in the room together and comedy ensues.”

In addition to the television commercial, Sony will promote its 3D products — which include movies, Blu-Ray disc players as well as televisions — through flash banners, radio commercials and print ads running in magazines such as Entertainment Weekly, ESPN, Esquire, GQ, People, Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated.
The company will also promote the products through social networking, email, direct mail and free-standing inserts as well as through www.SonyStyle.com, and through Sony Style retail stores.
While 3D televisions are getting significant advertising support from consumer electronics companies, Sony is make a concerted effort to showcase the full-range of its products, including Blu-Ray players and video games.

“Sony is one of the few companies that participates in all things 3D: movies, sports, games,” Weiss says. “That’s part of what makes their televisions so good. That’s why we decided to highlight those things.”

Shyamalan shopping new movie with big stars

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - As he puts the finishing touches on the big-budget fantasy spectacle "The Last Airbender," filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is quietly circulating a new script.

No details are known about the project, but it comes with some major acting talent: Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis are loosely attached to star in the film.

Shyamalan is famously secretive, and this project is no exception: Only top studio execs have read the script, and they were required to allow a Shyamalan assistant to supervise the process. When the executives finished reading, the assistant took the script back and left.

It's a practice that is consistent with previous Shyamalan script sales. But while there was a time when an original Shyamalan project -- with their trademarked twists and reveals -- caused great ripples throughout Hollywood, in recent years the filmmaker's box office and critical clout have diminished.

"Airbender," which is getting the full Paramount marketing push for a July 1 release, could bring some of that heat back, but the project is the first for Shyamalan based on material that he didn't originate. It's also his first attempt at a special effects-driven franchise-starter.

Still, with Cooper, Paltrow and Willis attached (the latter starred in the filmmaker's breakthrough "The Sixth Sense" and "Unbreakable"), Shyamalan can still lure talent.


I love all of them, so this sounds like it could be interesting.

'The Green Hornet' Trailer

Yahoo Movies has debuted the trailer for "The Green Hornet," starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour, and Tom Wilkinson.

In the film, Rogen plays Britt Reid, the son of LA's most prominent and respected media magnate. He is perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene – until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father's more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves – protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.

Using all his ingenuity and skill, Kato builds the ultimate in advanced retro weaponry, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car equal parts firepower and horsepower. Rolling in a mobile fortress on wheels and striking the bad guys with Kato's clever gadgets, The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA's gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all.

"The Green Hornet," written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and directed by Michel Gondry, opens on January 14, 2011 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.

Lady Gaga Sings About Gays in the Military in "Bitter" New Album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When she's not dressing down and causing controversy at a ball game, Lady Gaga is looking ahead to the future in a very big way.

Gracing the cover of this week's issue of Rolling Stone, the "Poker Face" singer dropped some pretty big news for fans who can't get enough of the Fame Monster: She's finished recording a new album and is planning an early 2011 release, the name of which she will announce at midnight on New Year's Eve.

"I think I'm gonna get the album title tattooed on me and put out the photo," she told the magazine. "I've been working on it for months now, and I feel very strongly that it's finished right now. It came so quickly. Some artists take years; I don't. I write music every day."

And no doubt she has a lot to say.

Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, added that unlike her debut, The Fame, and 2009's follow-up, The Fame Monster—both of which explored her blond ambition to be a pop superstar—the new disc will have more political, even angry overtones, tackling hot-button issues close to the crooner's heart, such as gays in the military.

"Why are we still talking about 'Don't ask, don't tell?'
exclaimed Gaga. "It's like, what f—king year is it? It makes me crazy!"

In effect, the tunes aren't as sweet.

"And I have been for three years baking cakes—and now I'm going to bake a cake that has a bitter jelly," she adds. "The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before. Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be."


Megan Fox was Grandmas favorite

Transformers actress Megan Fox says that she was her grandma’s favourite grandchild.

The 24-year-old actress – who was recently dropped from the third Transformers film- said that her mother’s mum preferred her to the rest of her family, even though she couldn’t always join in with her games.

She said: “My mother’s mother always favoured me for some reason-out of all her grandchildren. When I was really young, maybe two or three, I used to always ask her to get down on the floor and play My Little Pony or whatever I was into at the time, and as an excuse she would tell me that she had a bone in her knee.“It took me another three years to figure out that we all have bones in our knees. So I eventually called her out on it, and I remember her being genuinely amused with me.”

Fox, who grew up in Tennessee, recently admitted she loves home life with partner Brian Austin Green and relies on their time together to keep her “sane” away from the pressures of fame.

She said: “Oddly you wouldn’t think it, but I’m very domestic. That keeps me sane.

“I sort of distance myself from the Hollywood crowd. I don’t go out and socialise that way.”


'Always Sunny' IN Philadelphia

The cast and crew of the FX comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia have made their annual trip east to shoot scenes, mainly exteriors to give the show a hometown flavor. As I previously reported, they will be working here Monday, June 21 and Tuesday, June 22 only.

They will appear the evening of Wednesday, June 23 at an invitation-only grand-opening party for Mac's Tavern, 226 Market St. in Old City. Cast members Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and Danny DeVito are due to walk a red carpet about 8 p.m. McElhenney and Olson are among the bar's investors.

McElhenney, Olson, Howerton and some production folks visited Mac's Saturday night and mingled with the locals.

As for filming info:

Day and Howerton will be on camera Monday, shooting a scene with Phillies stars Chase Utley and Ryan Howard at the Harrah's Casino in Chester.

Tuesday's schedule has been in flux, but at the moment I hear that the whole cast will be working at Maggiano's Little Italy at 12th and Filbert Streets (so the cameras will show Reading Terminal Market in the background). They'll also be at two locations in South Philly, both near Moyamensing and Mifflin Streets.

In previous seasons, Always Sunny onlookers in Philly have been respectful, keeping their mouths shut during takes and not bothering the cast and crew while they're working.


Totally jealous of all you Philly people. Go get an ONTD sign with them, boners!

Also, Sunny gif party?

TIM GUNN VS. VOGUE - Calls out Anna + Andre DT for being lazy shits

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Does Tim Gunn seem like a liar to you? One to make up wild stories about diva behavior? Not to me either. Tim is set to release a book that he wrote with the help of a NY Post writer. Of course The Post has some excerpts and if the book is anything like the excerpt, this should be great!!

Talking about Anna Wintour, Gunn said, "I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms."

Surely though when they got to the bottom of the stairs though, Anna would walk to the car. Right? "I ran to the window to see if they would put her down on the sidewalk or carry her to the car like that. They carried her to the car.
And I thought: I will never for get this."

Who were these people carrying Anna? Do they get paid to do this for her because that seems like something that would be tough to quantify on a resume.

He also took a dig at Andre Leon Talley's divaness. "When we return to the green room, we see that someone has spread a translucent barber's bib over Andre and he's reclining, his arms at his sides. He's being fed grapes and cubes of cheese one by one, like a bird in a nest."

I can totally see Andre doing that. Probably learned it from Tyra Banks.

When The Post called Vogue for a comment they said that Tim has a vivid imagination and none of this happened. Uh huh.


Unknown lands lead in Footloose

After a several departures, Paramount Pictures has finalized principal casting on its Footloose remake.

Newcomer Kenny Wormald has landed the role of Ren, a toe-tapping teen who shakes up a conservative town. The part was originally played by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 version.Wormald has played a dancer in the dance movies Center Stage 2, Clerks II, and the timeless classic You Got Served, so he has some moves. However, it’s surprising director Craig Brewer and the studio didn’t (or weren’t able to) find a more recognizable Hollywood name, especially since they were considering Zac Efron, Chace Crawford, and Thomas Dekker.

“Dancing with the Stars” regular Julianne Hough is making the leap to the big screen from the reality show as Ariel. She’s also appearing in Christina Aguilera’s first film, Burlesque.

Provided some “star power” for these two relatively unknown dancers is Dennis Quaid who will play the disapproving Reverend Moore and father of Hough’s character, according to the press release. Miles Teller is playing Willard, Ren’s best friend and a part originally played by the late Chris Penn.

Crawford was attached to star alongside Hough, but left in April due to summer shoot scheduling conflicts with his CW show “Gossip Girl.” Director/choreographer Kenny Ortega bounced last October because he wasn’t interested in the more modest budget ($25 million), “edgier” direction and he was “exhausted” from piecing together the Michael Jackson documentary This is It. Efron was briefly on board, but exited because it too closely resembled his breakout role in the High School Musical trilogy.

Will Dr. Strange Be Marvel's First Superhero To Fly Under the Disney Banner?

Marvel Studios has hired Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write Dr. Strange, marking forward progress on a long-gestating superhero property which will likely be among the first Marvel films generated under the Disney banner. Aside from Conan--the Marcus Nispel-directed Lionsgate film that stars Jason Momoa--Donnelly and Oppenheimer also scripted a live action adaptation of the vidgame Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for Sony and producer Chuck Roven, and they wrote a draft of the Jon Favreau-directed Cowboys and Aliens for DreamWorks/Universal.


Dr. Strange has had a long strange journey to the screen that included stints at Savoy Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Dimension Films and Paramount--with a parade of writers and directors that included Bob Gale, Wes Craven, David Goyer, Stephen Norrington and Guillermo del Toro. Marvel finally got the rights and brought the property back into the fold.

Marvel Studios has four more films committed to be distributed through Paramount (including Iron-Man 3). Those will include Thor and The First Avenger: Captain America, with the last to likely be The Avengers. Marvel is separately working on the youth-oriented Runaways as well as Ant-Man, which is also oft-mentioned as a promising character among the 5000 Disney acquired in its $4 billion buy of Marvel. Marvel is making the deal with the writers' reps at Gersh and Underground and they should get going on Dr. Strange shortly.

Michael Jackson Memorial Plaque to Be Unveiled in London

A permanent memorial to Michael Jackson is set to be unveiled in London to mark the first anniversary of the superstar's death. The King of Pop passed away on June 25, 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home - just weeks before he was due to head to the British capital to kick off his ill-fated This Is It residency at the O2 Arena.

And now a plaque commemorating the singer's legacy is to be laid at the Lyric Theater in London's West End, the venue which houses Jackson tribute show Thriller.

The memorial will be unveiled at a ceremony on Thursday, June 24, which will see performances from the cast of the hit musical, as well as British dance troupe Diversity.


Ryan Murphy to Glee kids: don't have sex in your trailers!

Ryan Murphy has said that he has banned the cast of Glee from having sex with one another in their trailers.

The show's creator said that he understood the physical needs of the young stars but did not want them to act on their urges on set.

Murphy told Heat: "I've dated people I've worked with and, you know, when you work on a set for 18 hours a day I think it's natural.

"But I have a rule: don't do it in your trailer! They've broken that rule on many occasions. I'm like, 'I know you guys are young and hormonal, but don't do it in your trailer'."

Murphy recently dismissed rumors of an imminent Glee feature film.

Happy Father's Day LOL

2 Live Crew front man Luke Campbell was blasted a few weeks ago by his daughter Lacresha who claimed he was a dead beat dad. In a video posted online, Lacresha claims Luke Campbell has about 5-6 kids but only claims one of them which is with his current wife. She also claimed Luke abused her mother and kicked them out of his house when she was 3.

As you may know, Ludacris brought Luke out as a surprise guest during his set at Birthday Bash in Atlanta this past weekend. Nnete of The Mad Hatta Morning Show caught up with Luke backstage to see what he had to say about his daughters putting him on blast. He responded:

“I have one kid. His name is Blake Campbell and he stays with me and me and my wife raise him. I’ve made mistakes in my life and I’d like everyone to understand that It’s important to practice safe sex and it’s important to not have sex without condoms because you’ll be sperm donating and when you sperm donate to angry mothers then unfortunately it’s about a check. When you get a check, the results of that check ends up where your sperm donation kids are online talking bad about you after you paid millions and millions dollars in child support… “

Though it’s an intriguing image, she manages to come off less like a Mariah Carey-style sex kitten and more in the vein of a Jack Black-type, rubbing his nipples and licking his lips. When someone chooses to change the “s” in her name to a dollar sign, it’s really hard to take much that she does thereafter seriously. Imagine if Joanna New$om or Regina $pektor had made that little alteration. Collapse )

smart, talented, gorgeous.. i'm fully convinced she is the epitome of perfection.

Indrani shares more about her feelings for Lindsay Lohan

Indrani, one half of photographic duo Klinko and Indrani -- who is now on the Bravo reality series Double Exposure -- recently talked with Out magazine about working with Lady Gaga, being afraid of Naomi Campbell, and her much rumored romance with Lindsay Lohan. I just cut to the juicy bit about Lohan:

Before we go there is one final thing we have to discuss, and it’s for you Indrani. You probably already know what it’s about, but we want to know what is going on with you and Lindsay Lohan.
Indrani: I was very excited about shooting Lindsay. I’ve said that before, and it’s grown into a bigger story. I think she’s extremely attractive and intelligent. I think she has huge potential. I think she’s totally misunderstood. She’s someone I got to know, and I enjoy the time we spend together.

OK, but what is the romantic situation?
Indrani: There’s definitely this … [pauses]… What can I say? I try to keep my relationships private. Let’s leave it at that. Markus made some comment, which I was very upset about because talking about one’s private life is generally not a great idea.
Klinko: Let me just jump in. A couple comments I made got a worldwide spin. Suddenly it became a six-month relationship. It is what it is. The media loves to sensationalize.
Indrani: There’s never some smoke without some fire. There are pictures out there of us. We definitely have a lot of things there. It’s not the way things are being portrayed. Even my family in India has been questioned about me being a lesbian.

Are you a lesbian?
Indrani: I think everyone is bisexual. Society pushes us in one direction, but we get attracted to different people. I think attraction is constantly changing. I think it’s one of the beautiful things in life. There are so many possibilities. For me, sexuality is a very raw and powerful thing. It can happen anywhere, and it’s magic when you do fall in love.

Are you in love with Lindsay?
Indrani: Lindsay is someone I find incredibly special. I tend to gush about her because I do think she’s pretty terrific. There are so many more important questions in the world like what’s going on with the oil spill or what’s going on with our government invading various countries. Yes, it’s fun, but people want to be distracted.

Jerry Seinfeld: Lady Gaga 'Is A Jerk'

Twelve days after Lady Gaga wound up in his box at Shea Stadium during a Mets game, Jerry Seinfeld has called her "a jerk" and then some. Joking or no? Read and decide.

"This woman is a jerk. I hate her," Seinfeld said during a WFAN radio interview on Monday, perhaps . "I can't believe they put her in my box, which I paid for."

Gaga, dressed in bra and swilling beer, was moved from her front row seat to Seinfeld's empty box (without his knowledge) after flipping off photographers.

"You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we're living in now?" he said.

Seinfeld first said when asked about the June 10th incident, reports the NY Post, "I wish her the best.. you take one 'A' off of that and you've got gag."

"I don't know what these young people think or how they promote their careers," Seinfeld said. "I'm older, I'm 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. ... Do you think he understands that? He can't understand that. That's a new game, that's kids."

He added, "I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure -- you could die of exposure."

SyFy to let fans create new Saturday movie

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Syfy is giving online fans a chance to write and design every aspect of an upcoming Saturday night creature feature.

The network is launching a production site, B Movie Mogul, where fans can vote and pitch ideas for the film -- from the title, creatures, wardrobe, dialogue and character deaths to promotional taglines.

The resulting script will be shot as a two-hour Syfy original movie that will air next year.

"We constantly have fans e-mailing with compliments, complaints and questions about our movies, and this is a way of involving the fans in a new way," said Thomas Vitale, executive vp programming and original movies for the network. "This is where entertainment is going and just the start of many more things of this nature for Syfy."

Syfy is teaming with entertainment site IGN on the site; the partnership will last 15 months and launch Friday.

The first stage will have fans voting on one of three overall concepts for the movie: a 2010 apocalypse story, a Bermuda Triangle-set creature feature or a Roswell, N.M.-set alien movie.

But the venture raises the question: What if fans create a lousy movie?

"When you have a lot of people working on something, good ideas will come out of it," Vitale said. "We will have something that will be entertaining."

Celebrities honor Celtics with full-page Boston Globe advertisement

A group of the Celtics' most famous fans, ranging from actors and comedians to other Boston-area pro athletes, has honored the team with a full-page advertisement in the Globe this morning [yesterday].

"You are our 2010 World Champions" reads the ad, which was signed by television personality Maria Menounos, comedian Dane Cook, actor Eliza Dushku and musician/actor Donnie Wahlberg. Patriots Wes Welker and Vince Wilfork and Wilfork's wife, Bianca, also signed the ad, as did several others from the entertainment industry: -- Chris Evans, Michael and Michelle Chiklis, Chris Ivery, Ellen Pompeo, Keven Undergaro and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Wahlberg, Menounos and Cook were particularly visible at most of the NBA Finals games, and they became the face of the Celtics' fan base both in Boston and Los Angeles.


I accept the Lakers win, but it was only 4 points in the end (and they were all from those damn fouls from crooked refs!).

Ask 'Inception' Stars Leo DiCaprio and Ellen Page Questions for Moviefone's Unscripted!

is looking for fans to submit questions for an upcoming episode of Unscripted for 'Inception' starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page:

'Inception' is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated films of the summer. After 'The Dark Knight' dominated the summer box office two years ago, fans have been waiting for director Christopher Nolan's next project. But audiences couldn't prepare themselves for 'Inception' -- a cerebral sci-fi thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page.

DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a talented thief in the world of corporate espionage. Only he doesn't break into buildings, he breaks into people's minds and steals ideas from their dreams. Page plays Ariadne, Cobb's sidekick, who is learning the tricks of his unique trade. After a successful career of psychic infiltration, Cobb is set up by a mysterious figure who forces him to pull off his biggest mind break-in and plant an idea into an unsuspecting head.

Fans have spent months chasing after any clues that will help them uncover the truth behind 'Inception.' And now Moviefone will place two of the film's stars in one room, ready to answer anything you ask them.

DiCaprio and Page will be teaming up for our Unscripted interview series, which means they'll be asking each other fan questions and, hopefully, revealing a little more insight into the mysterious 'Inception.' Here's your chance to ask them whatever's on your mind: Submit a question for DiCaprio or Page in the comments [on the original Moviefone post] by June 24 at Noon ET. Don't forget to include your name and city...

DVD-sniffing dogs, the more adorable side of the anti-piracy battle.

The MPAA has tried out many tactics in their battle against piracy, from lawsuits to seeding fake torrents. But one mode is far cuter than the rest.

The first DVD sniffing dogs were introduced in 2006: Lucky and Flo, two black labs who together have sniffed out at least 1.9 million pirated disks, leading to the arrest of 26 people.

Then there was Ruca, Portugal's own black lab, and the late Manny, a yellow lab, who was found dead before he had a chance to get to work. Foul play was suspected: a bounty of $28,000 allegedly hangs over the heads of Lucky and Flo. The autopsy was never made public -- the MPAA ordered movie theaters to fly their flags at half-mast.

The latest addition to the canine anti-piracy family is Dixie, who'll be assisting government councils in Scotland. Dixie is a thoroughly adorable springer spaniel who can also sniff out tobacco.

So what's your opinion on piracy? Do you think this is a good idea?

Danielle Staub & Girlfriend Lori Michaels: Lesbian Couple?

PREVIOUSLY: Real Housewife of New Jersey Danielle Staub debuted her single 'Real Close' on Bravo's 'Watch What Happens Live' Monday night. She also suggested she and singer-songwriter Lori Michaels are more than duet partners.

After Danielle and Lori performed the "tortured lullaby," cooing to each other while gazing into each other's eyes, Danielle nuzzled into Lori's shoulder. Host Andy Cohen asked Danielle whether she and Lori (who is a lesbian) are together, which is probably the exact reaction Danielle wanted. She refused to comment and started stroking Lori's hair.

In another part of the segment Danielle mentioned she has made no money off of her sex tape, bemoaning the fact that it was shot before her boob job revision. Maybe coming out will help sales? Is Danielle a new lesbian or just a prostitution whore?

UPDATE: Danielle has referred to Lori as her "gf" over Twitter.

"Thank you everyone for supporting me with love and kindness in my song "Real Close" bless my gf Lori Michaels," she wrote.

Alexa Ray Joel Has a New Boyfriend

Looks like Alexa Ray Joel's broken heart is on the mend: The singer, 24, who told PEOPLE that her despair over a failed romance led her to be hospitalized last December, has a new boyfriend. He is singer-songwriter Cass Dillon.

The pair met when Dillon, 24, was hired to play guitar on Joel's upcoming album. (To listen to her first single, "Notice Me," click here.) "Dating can be awkward," Joel said in April. "I prefer to meet someone through work or socially."

Odds are her dad, Billy Joel, approves. Back in 2007, Dillon released the single "Christmas in Fallujah," which was written by the Piano Man himself. Proceeds benefitted the non-profit Homes For Our Troops.

It's a Miley post, y'all!!!

Miley Cyrus comes to Rock Band!

In a mix of both disdain and morbid curiosity, I have the charge of informing you that Miley Cyrus, and not her weird alter-ego Hannah Montana is coming to Rock Band on June 22. No doubt many of you secret Cyrus fans are foaming at the mouth to be playing the teen pop-star’s songs and rest assured, you will be able to in no time at all.
The release of the songs will coincide with her latest album’s release and Miley sure is excited about it:


“I’m excited fans will be able to download and play five of my songs in Rock Band. I love that people can rock out with me and play my new song ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ on the same day my album comes out!”

All tracks will be available on the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii versions of any Rock Band game. And without further ado, the totally rocking songs you will be able to play:
  • “7 Things”
  • “Can’t Be Tamed”
  • “Fly On the Wall”
  • “See You Again”
  • “Start All Over”

The song “Can’t Be Tamed” will be a song off of her latest album, aptly titled “Can’t Be Tamed”.
All songs will be priced at 160 MS/$1.99/200 Wii per individual song and releasing June 22.

Before everyone starts going all foaming-at-the-mouth crazy over the inclusion of Miley Cyrus alongside artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Jefferson Airplane, let’s remember that this isn’t the first “kids oriented” set of songs to come to Rock Band, what with the Spongebob Squarepants and iCarly stuff. Who knows, though, someone out there will get it, play it with their friends, and it could lead to the most amazing night of their lives. Or it might not.


The WNBA has also decided to use Miley's single "Can't be Tamed" for thier 2010 season/commercial.

Salma Hayek Loves To Eat Bugs

Salma Hayek, looking mouth watering in purple, made herself salivate telling David Letterman about a Mexican delicacy - bugs.

Hayek, after saying she did not eat horse meat, described various delicious bugs that she has eaten, including 'tiny grasshoppers' that 'have a smokey flavor to them.. it's really good.'

She accidentally said 'delicatessen' instead of 'delicacy' at one point, joking that as her French gets better (her husband is French) her English is getting worse.

But, she told Letterman, she still dreams in Spanish.

Weird Al May Parody Lady Gaga On Next Album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Weird Al Yankovic is nine songs into his next album. "I've got three more to do," he reports -- and that's the hard part.

"I need to write three parodies," Yankovic, who's in the midst of a summer tour, tells Billboard.com. "It's tough because I'm waiting for the right idea to pop into my brain. It coincides with the right song coming out; a lot of tumblers need to fall into place. If I'm lucky I'll knock 'em out when I get off the road and have out at the end of the year. If not, it'll be next year some time, but I'm hoping sooner."

Yankovic acknowledges that Lady Gaga is "a great candidate" for a parody but says that "I don't want to give anything away. All you've got to do is look at the top of the Billboard charts; that's what I'm looking at, too." Yankovic did release five of his new songs on last year's digital "Internet Leaks" EP, including a parody of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" and stylistic homages to the White Stripes, the Doors and Queen.

Complicating things is that Yankovic's job "has gotten much harder on a number of levels." One is precious few singles these days make the kind of crossover societal impact and enjoy the "communal sharing" as songs by Michael Jackson, Don McLean, Eminem and others that he's previously parodied. And, Yankovic adds, the Internet is not always his friend.

"Because of portals like that, I will never again be the only or the first person to parody any given pop song," he explains. "By the time I'm in the studio recording my parody, 10,000 parodies of that song are on YouTube. It makes it harder to be fresh and unique. It's frustrating, but it does help me step up my game. If I can't be the first and only, I can be the best."

His last full album was 2006's gold-certified "Straight Outta Lynwood, which topped the Billboard Comedy chart, reached No. 10 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold.

In addition to the music, Yankovic has written a children's book, "When I Grow Up," that's scheduled to be published in March. "I wrote it last year," he says, "but apparently they have a long lag time with children's literature. It needs to pass through committees and everything. But I enjoyed doing that, and I'll probably be doing more down the line."


I don't know what he can do that hasn't been done yet, but I hope there's a video whatever song/artist he chooses to parody.

Hanson covers Furry Walls by Aldous Snow

We have always been influenced by all types of music. When we think of the most iconic rock bands in history, it starts with Led Zeppelin,The Who,ACDC and ends with Infant Sorrow (lead by iconic front man Aldous Snow). Their new track "Furry Walls" is blowing our minds, check our our impromptu cover of the track recorded in a late night NY rock session a couple days ago, just for you guys.

To tell you more. We have been huge fans for some time going back to fav track "We've Got To Do Something" a few years ago which was a much mellower tune. Sorrow recently re-surfaced with their epic "Get Him To The Greek" album. We love the track so much we had to get into the studio for a 48 hour NY rock session. Attached is the fresh off the presses HANSON rendition of the track For YOU!

While Scott Disick just bought baby Mason his first Lamborghini, E! News has learned Khloé Kardashian Odom also bought her man Lamar Odom a brand-new Rolls Royce as a present for his Lakers champsionship win.

Kris Jenner tells E! exclusively the details of the extravagant gift...

"It's a brand new 2010 Rolls Royce...drop-top coupe, white on white," says Jenner. "It was a Lakers championship present. Fabulous!"

Odom was spotted rolling in his new ride last night after dinner with his wife, kids and the rest of the Kardashian clan at Boa on Sunset.

The car retails for around $400,000. Now, the pressure is on Lamar as Khloé's birthday approaches.

Wonder what the basketball star will do for his lady? It'll be hard to beat a gift like that. But it sounds like the two will start with a little trip.

While attending the Lakers celebratory parade, a very happy Lamar shared their excitement about an upcoming getaway to Mexico to relax after a long season.

Courtney Love is hardly Khalil Gibran's prophet, but she certainly has a unique perspective on, well, everything. On Monday, VH1 premiered 'Behind the Music: Courtney Love' in which the Hole frontwoman opened up about fame, her critics, Trent Reznor and drugs.

While the teaser for Love's documentary portrays a lucid woman ruminating about her past, her clip reel shows audiences the mercurial celebrity people hate to love and love to hate. Case in point: "I get this s*** because I'm the only f***ing chick standing," she says about fame. "And I'm a crazy b****, and I'm a widow and it makes me sick. It's f***ing pathetic. Stop it. Seriously, or I'll f***ing kill you."

The cheeky singer credited rapper Ludacris for the line, which is a lyric in his song Nasty Girl.

Speaking on Chicago's Kiss 103.5 FM, Katy also said: "I want her (Rihanna) to strip at my bachelorette party.

"(I want to see) the whole bit. She's hot. I love her. She's the coolest chick and I want all of her clothes."

When asked about Rihanna's ex Chris Brown and his violent past, Katy looked a little awkward.

She added: "I'm sure everybody has an opinon about it, but I think she's really happy now."

The naughty songbird also said she wanted to call new album Teenage Wet Dream, but had to settle for Teenage Dream.

Kid Sister: Cut Kanye West some slack, "I mean he's not Chris Brown!"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Chicago rapper Kid Sister recently talked about the return of Kanye West and why critics should move past slamming him for last year's notorious MTV Video Music Awards incident with Taylor Swift.

From Sister's perspective, Yeezy's stunt was more humorous than serious.

"I didn't really care about it, I thought it was kind of funny actually," Sister said when asked about her reaction to Ye's actions. "Come on, everyone makes silly decisions. It was a silly decision and that was the extent of it. I think the music speaks louder than anything, so as long as you make really good, visionary, forward-thinking music then it doesn't matter what you do. I mean, he's not Chris Brown! I think he's all right."

Recently, Chicago rapper Rhymefest also addressed critics attacking West's character.

"The crazy thing is people hate you, then when you put another album out they like you again," he said in an interview last month. "I think that we as a people are so force-fed by corporations that we don't know what we want. Yeah, people were mad at Kanye last year, but they're also looking forward to him putting another album out. Soon as the album drops they are going to forget why they were mad in the first place. I think people love Kanye because he speaks his mind and there ain't that many Black men that do that and why we are on it, n*ggas need to stop fronting like that White girl deserved that award. They knew what he was saying and need to cut it out, for real."

I feel like, you know what, yes, I am a new artist, I still have to put out an album, I still have to prove myself. I still have to prove myself to me.

In the interview Minaj was also asked about the rumour going around that she was dating P Diddy, something that she denied:

“That is, wait, can I just say, I hold everybody's hands! I hold my bodyguard's hands! Noooo I'm not dating Diddy! Listen, sometimes I think they know these things are false. But when people ask me, I think, 'I didn't even know I was gonna have to even address that.' When I'm ready to announce new management, you'll know."

Accused Audrina Patridge stalker pleads no contest

LOS ANGELES — A man arrested outside Audrina Patridge's home has pleaded no contest to stalking "The Hills" star and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.

Deputy District Attorney Wendy Segall says Zachary Loring entered the plea Monday in Los Angeles and will undergo a 90-day diagnostic evaluation before being sentenced. If found competent, he could be sentenced to up to two years in state prison.

Patridge did not appear in court. She has previously testified in a civil restraining order hearing that she feared Loring, who police say repeatedly went to the starlet's home and left her numerous items, including some disturbing drawings.

The 25-year-old Loring is due back in court on Sept. 20 for sentencing.

Forgotten Classics: ‘My Baby is Black’

This one’s called “My Baby is Black” and comes from 1961.  It’s actually available on DVD.  “Conceived In Love… Delivered into HATE!”  “The story of ‘All the Way’ May and the apple truck worker, the black buck whose seed was dropped deep in her womb only to conceive a mongrel!”

Apparently it was supposed to be about the horrors of bigotry, but erudite satire and b-movie exploitation flicks don’t always make for the happiest marriage, much like mixing between the races. Wait, what?  Anyway, they sure don’t make them like they used to. (*sigh*)

Someday we should do a double feature of this and White Dog, the most awesomely politically incorrect double feature of all time.

Matthew Rhys pays a visit to Children’s Hospital for Wales

Actor Matthew Rhys is facing up to what may be the last series of the show that made him a US star.

The Cardiff-born actor, who is set to return to LA next week to begin filming the next series of Brothers and Sisters, said: “We are not sure it’s the last season – it’s not been confirmed yet but I imagine it will be.”

Rhys – who plays gay lawyer Kevin Walker in the popular ABC series which also stars Sally Field, Calista Flockhart and Rob Lowe – is enjoying a rare break in Wales before next returning at Christmas.

But it might not be too long before the Edge of Love star visits more frequently, as he admitted to missing his homeland “enormously”.

Rhys, who will be canoeing on the River Wye this week, told the Western Mail: “That never goes away – all the friends and family are still here.

“When I come back I realise I miss the landscape of Wales, I miss the chippies and pubs, and the people.”

He was speaking at the Children’s Hospital of Wales, where he toured the surgical wards and met young patients before the second phase of a major refurbishment there.

Missy Elliott on Nicki Minaj: "She makes rapping fun again"

Why Hip-Hop Needs Nicki Minaj (the Rapper With a Crush on Meryl Streep)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

he crazy-eyed 25-year-old Lil Wayne protégée (signed to his label, Young Money-Cash Money Records) has a star-studded résumé: Nicki Minaj has made more than 30 scene-stealing guest appearances on tracks and videos by artists like Ludacris, Mariah Carey, and labelmate Drake. So far, she’s only made mix tapes, but a debut album (with help from Swizz Beatz) is on the way; a single, “Your Love,” is already climbing the R&B charts.

Roots: Minaj was born Onika Tanya Maraj in a rough section of Jamaica, Queens. Her dad was an addict who sold the family’s furniture to buy drugs; her mother, a nurse’s aide, struggled to keep a stable home. “To get away from all their fighting, I would imagine being a new person,” Minaj says. “ ‘Cookie’ was my first identity—that stayed with me for a while. I went on to Harajuku Barbie, then Nicki Minaj. Fantasy was my reality. I must have been such a fucking annoying little girl,” she adds with a self-mocking eye roll. “Everywhere we went I was up singing or acting, like, ‘Hey look at me!’ ” She sang in the choir, wrote her first rap at 12, and studied acting at La Guardia high school (she was turned down for singing), where she developed her ongoing obsession with Meryl Streep (she says the only other celeb who would leave her speechless is Judge Judy).

Brand and Perry to wed in latex?

Russell Brand and Katy Perry are apparently going to get married wearing matching latex outfits.

The outrageous British comedian and the I Kissed A Girl singer have hired Lady Gaga's costume designer and fetish-wear specialist Atsuko Kudo to create skin-tight costumes for their September nuptials, the Sun reports.

A source claimed: "Russell and Katy have both got wicked sense of humours and are big fans of Lady Gaga - they wanted unique outfits and no one dresses like her anywhere in the civilised world, the wedding will certainly be different - they have approached Kudo and she was delighted to take on the job."


Is it weird that I love looking at wedding dresses even though I'm nowhere near to getting married :(?

Naked Showdown

When last heard from, the Times Square tourist attraction known as the Naked Cowboy had tossed his 10-gallon hat into the political ring to unseat Mayor Michael Bloomberg, only to withdraw his candidacy.

Now, the Cowboy – real name: Robert Burck, 39 – wants to rope in some potential competition, the New York Post reports. The Cowboy's target: bikini-clad Sandy Kane, who calls herself "The Naked Cowgirl" and who also appears in Times Square.

Only unlike the Cowboy, who wears only boots, a hat and tighty whities, the Cowgirl often sports a stars-and-stripes cowboy hat and matching swimsuit.

"Your use of Naked Cowgirl is essentially identical to the Naked Cowboy and is clearly in violation [of the Naked Cowboy trademark]," reads a cease-and-desist letter Burck sent the Cowgirl, says the Post. He also told the paper, "If she's going to sell stuff and make money off of it, then, yeah, she's going to have to pay."

Daisy Shimmy

It's a Matt Smith and Daisy Lowe post

Doctor Who Star Smith Is A Hit With Pearl Lowe.

Matt Smith has won the approval of his girlfriend Daisy Lowe's mother Pearl - she has branded the DOCTOR WHO star a "match" for her daughter. The British actor recently rekindled his on/off love affair with lingerie model Daisy after reportedly ending the relationship last month).

The couple proved the romance is back on after Smith whisked Daisy away for a vacation in Italy last week, where they were spotted kissing and frolicking together in the sea. And former Powder singer Pearl is convinced the relationship will last, because the young lovers are well suited for one another. She tells Hello! magazine, "Matt's a very nice boy. I've only met him once, because he works, which is great. She's met her match - someone who works as hard as she does."

But Pearl admits her headstrong daughter, whose father is Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale, doesn't always listen to her opinion when it comes to dating, adding: "I can name at least four (boyfriends) I didn't like, and she went out with them anyway."


Daisy Lowe Models For Her Mum’s Accessories Collection

Pearl and Daisy Lowe are proving that mothers and daughters make excellent teams. Daisy’s photos from her mother’s latest collection for Peacocks are out, and she looks absolutely angelic! The vintage-inspired dress and accessory line (more photos after the jump) portrays Daisy in a softer light, as her father’s rock star genes tend to shine through her edgy personal style. She also seems to channel Victoria Beckham in a few of the shots.
