Remembering their late, great family member, the Jackson gang was out at various events as they celebrated the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death on Friday (June 25).

Among the sightings, Tito, Janet, Jermaine and Randy were busy paying a visit to the King of Pop's grave at Forest Lawn Memorial Park at Glendale, California.

Meanwhile, Katherine Jackson returned from Hawaii to unveil a new Michael Jackson statue at his childhood home in Gary, Indiana.

During the outing, Mrs Jackson offered up a speech to the crowd of thousands waiting outside in the poor neighborhood, then shaking hands with some of the fans as they surrounded her freshly manicured yard.

M.Night tells racebenders to sit down.

M Night Shyamalan in his own words on The Last Airbender race controversy.

Q: There's been a lot of controversy regarding the casting and how all the heroes are being portrayed by Caucasian actors, while all the villains are all being portrayed by non-Caucasians. How do you respond to those who are saying that The Last Airbender is racist?

M Night Shyamalan: ‘Well, you caught me. I'm the face of racism. I'm always surprised at the level of misunderstanding, the sensitivities that exist. As an Asian-American, it bothers me when people take all of their passion and rightful indignation about the subject and then misplace it. Here's the reality: first of all, the Uncle Iroh character is the Yoda character in the movie, and it would be like saying that Yoda was a villain. So he's Persian.

No beef between Lakers wives

Are Khloe Kardashian and Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa feuding? Or has the story been blown out of proportion? While some word-of-mouth pits the two basketball wives against each other, Vanessa sets the record straight exclusively for ET's Kevin Frazier.
"I have been a Laker wife for the past 10 years and I've never had an issue with anyone, especially any of the Laker wives," says Vanessa, who is currently in the Caribbean with Kobe on the way to the World Cup. "Celebrating your first NBA championship is an exciting time, I know because I've shared five along with my husband. My focus will remain spending quality time with my husband and children this summer. I look forward to supporting the Lakers on their quest for another championship next season."
Tabloid reports have quoted insiders reportedly saying that Vanessa is not pleased with Khloe and her entourage and refuses to invite the wife of Laker forward Lamar Odom to events with the other Lakers wives. But according to Vanessa, all's well in Lakers land.
Lakers star Ron Artest also gave his two cents to ET at Thursday night's 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' premiere, saying that all that talk is simply not true: "No, they're cool. We're all family. The wives, the girlfriends and the boys -- we're all family, straight family. Vanessa's great, a lovely lady, and Khloe's great. Khloe's family, you know? [Lamar] -- that's my boy, so I love them both."


I prefer Vanessa to Khloe tbh

Cops Respond to Verbal Attack at Kardashian House

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TMZ has learned cops rolled out to the Calabasas home of Kourtney Kardashian and her baby daddy Scott Disick earlier today ... after Scott went ballistic on his neighbor ... and even called her a "whale."

We're told officers arrived to the scene after somebody called police and reported a "dispute with a neighbor" that was going down in front of the Kardashian home.

We're told no arrests were made and no one was cited.

As for what triggered the verbal spat -- it appears it began over a parking dispute ... but it turned nasty when Scott turned to the woman and screamed, "You're disgusting ... I would kill myself If I looked like you .... you whale."

Abercrombie & Fitch brings back racy catalog

Preppy teen retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is reinstating its racy A&F Quarterly catalog after a seven-year absence.

The catalog is available for pre-order on Abercrombie's website for $10 per issue. It starts publication on July 17.

Abercrombie was one of the hardest-hit teen retailers during the recession as customers abandoned its relatively high-priced flannel shirts and jeans for lower-priced competitors such as Aeropostale Inc. and American Eagle Outfitters Inc.

But the company has seen better results during the first half of 2010 as it improved its clothing assortment, lowered prices and cut costs. From the beginning of the year until the end of May, revenue in stores open at least one year, a key measure of a retailer's fiscal health, rose 1 percent, while total revenue rose 13 percent to $885.4 million.

Abercrombie discontinued publication of A&F Quarterly, of which Bruce Weber was the photographer, in 2003. There had been complaints about sexually suggestive photographs, but Abercrombie never said that that was the reason the catalog's U.S. run ended.

RBC Capital Markets analyst Howard Tubin, who rates the company "Sector Perform," said the catalog probably won't make a material difference on earnings, but added that any media exposure related to the catalog will be a positive for the New Albany, Ohio-based company.

"They are starting to reconnect with some of their customers and want to drive more traffic into their stores and e-commerce site," he said. "A catalog is one way for them to do that."

Abercrombie did not return a call seeking comment. Shares fell 32 cents to $31.73 during morning trading.

According to a source, Tyler Perry is a drag queen scorned!!!

Word on the streets is the recent ’Boondocks’ episode, that mocked everything TP hit a deep nerve with the mogul. Our source claims he’s paranoid and believes it was an inside job – based on the show’s accuracy!!!

Our source also says that Madea is giving pink slips to his entire staff [not the shirtless boy wonders of course] starting Friday – – he wants to control any leaks of information about ”the compound!!”

DIVA! So apparently the information in the Boondock’s episode had some truth to it, and only could’ve been leaked by someone that works at the studio. So, um, which part of the episode below has some truth to it Mr. Perry!!!

See the video that made Landon Donovan cry

Source: www.youtube.com/watch

RENE, South Africa – College student Robby Donoho watched Landon Donovan’s golden goal on Wednesday and decided it merited an instant tribute. Little did he know, within hours it would wind up bringing the United States soccer hero, flicking through the Internet half a world away, to tears.

Donoho, a 21-year-old Purdue University senior and avid fan of the men’s national team, collected a montage of clips of USA fans celebrating Donovan’s injury-time winner against Algeria and assembled them into a catchy package, which he put on YouTube.

Within hours, the video had gone viral, and as the American players headed to bed on Friday night ahead of their round-of-16 match against Ghana in Rustenburg, more than 350,000 1.4 MILLION (in only 2 days) viewers had tuned in.

It didn’t take long for the images to be passed through to the USA’s training camp near Pretoria and onto the laptop of Donovan himself. For all of the praise and plaudits the goal-scoring star received after his moment of glory, it was seeing the reaction sparked by his calm strike into the bottom corner of the Algerian net that touched him the most.

“Not sure if you guys saw this but it brings tears to my eyes every time,” Donovan wrote on his Facebook account, while linking to Donoho’s video. “Thank you all so much … we can do it.”

The video is awesome, def makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Go USA!

FYI - If there isn't a new post by match time, feel free to use this as a PARTY post~

Friday night was suppose to be all about Eminem and Jay-Z on Letterman for the rap world right? Stop it Sliiiiiiiiime! Funkmaster Flex dropped the bomb and premiered the reunion track of the Diplomats. The crew that came up with some of the most popular slang of the 2000s (You wanna be mad at No Homo & You Maaaaad, blame them) and some of the most ironic fashion trends (dressing in pink head to toe, tight jeans, the Ed Hardy Rockstar for Rappers look) have settled their differences and seemingly are working on a new album for the 4th quarter of 2010.

Source- Info go the Download version of this.

Eh, I was never that crazy into Dipset (Am I suppose to say no homo there?*kanyeshurg*). They had a few okay joints like the first album but for the most part they were clowns who probably helped the decline of NYC Hip-Hop rather than keeping it going. Ultimately they never really reached the potential of being the Wu-Tang of this generation, although some would differ.
Evidently I dont think they sound that good without Just Blaze and the Heatmakerz doing their shit.

Team Gibson makes baby shaking allegations


INSIDE STORY: Mel Gibson and Ex-Girlfriend Battling over Daughter
By Ken Lee

It was heated exchange in early January – with their baby daughter caught in the middle – that has led to domestic violence allegations against Mel Gibson by his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, PEOPLE has learned.

The Russian-born singer, 40, alleged in an emergency restraining order filed Monday against Gibson, 54, that he struck her during an argument at his Malibu home – an allegation that a Gibson source says is distorted.

"Oksana was completely out of control that day, screaming, and shaking Lucia like a ragdoll," says the source. "Mel stepped in to stop her from injuring the baby."

As you might expect, the story is full of sex and filthy language — but there's also shocking violence. You'll find child abuse, three orgasms, two beatings, intense humiliation and a bloody car crash — all in the first 32 pages alone.

The first disturbing scene involves a young Linda being smacked in the face by her mother, who also burns her daughter's hand with a Bic lighter. This is page 10 —- in other words, within the first 10 minutes of the film

Britney Spears was the biggest of the teen pop stars to emerge in the late 1990s. However, by the middle of the following decade it seemed her musical career may have drowned in a mass of bad publicity and personal difficulties. Britney Spears then put together one of the most phenomenal comebacks in pop music history and is more commercially and critically successful than ever before. In the past decade she has released 16 top 40 pop singles, five #1 albums and is, at the age of 27, a pop icon.

Justin Bieber talks about his idol, Michael Jackson

When it comes to "King of Pop" Michael Jackson, don't mess with Justin Bieber. The teen singing sensation was one of many guests on "20/20" Friday talk talking about how the legendary singer influenced his life -- however, he wasn't altogether pleased with some of the show's more controversial segments.

Bieber shared his thoughts in a post on his Twitter account:

"im glad to be a part of the 20/20 michael jackson special but i wish they would cut the nonsense and focus on the great entertainer he was."

During the special ABC aired footage from a member of the paparazzi taken while Jackson was being carted away to the hospital. Some felt it inappropriate for Michael's final hours to be documented, even more so than frequently discussing some of his legal woes.


Glastonbury 2010: Florence and Radiohead steal the show

It might be a stereotype that Brits like to talk about the weather, but it's one that rings true on this scorching Glastonbury weekend. In between discussion about whether anyone could spot a cloud in the sky, there were plenty of bands to distract festivalgoers from the heat. Florence and the Machine stepped it up a gear to a huge crowd on the Other stage, proving that she's a festival favourite with gaggles of girls and gangs of lads alike. Sadly, her presence didn't seem to carry to the small screen, if you believe our readers (Earwicker: "rancidly out of tune, judging by my telly").

Gorillaz headlined the Pyramid stage on Friday night, but Radiohead attracted the most adoring crowd in a not-so-secret-but-still-a-surprise set on the Park stage earlier in the evening. Alexis Petridis decided that the gig was so good that even a Radiohead refusenik could enjoy it, though this may be because Thom Yorke was "dressed like Mark Knopfler".

As for the headliners, it seems that Neil Tennant was right when he told the Guardian: "It's interesting that Dizzee is playing just before Gorillaz. Damon should be a bit worried about that ..."

The general consensus is that the Gorillaz set lacked a bit of oomph. @lba_dub, one of our dedicated crew of twitterers, wrote: "Gorillaz – didn't work for me. Damon's other band were 100 times better last year." Our reviewer Dorian Lynskey was inclined to agree, giving the band three out of five for a "rocky, risk-taking" set.

'Toy Story 3' is carelessly 'sexist'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It has won rave reviews and topped the US box office, but the computer-animated film Toy Story 3 has not impressed everyone. Feminists are complaining that the 3D family film is sexist, citing the prevalence of male characters – a ratio of seven males to one female – and negative depictions of women in the film: from Andy's "nagging" mother to the "hyper-feminine" and "overly emotional" Barbie.

The long-standing US feminist magazine Ms has accused the film of "careless sexism", with the writer Natalie Wilson arguing that the film may damage children.

"Kids who grow up watching sexist shows are more likely to grow up internalising stereotypical ideas of what men and women are supposed to be like," she writes.

The article also argues that the film is homophobic in its depiction of the doll Ken as a "closeted gay fashionista with a fondness for writing in sparkly purple ink", stating that: "Pairing homophobia with misogyny, the jokes about Ken suggest that the worst things a boy can be are either a girl or a homosexual."

Ryan, Tatum and Redmond O’Neal commemorated the one year anniversary of the death of Farrah Fawcett Friday by visiting the actress’ Los Angeles gravesite.

Redmond, Fawcett’s 25-year-old son, was on a day pass from a sober living facility where he is undergoing court-ordered drug rehab.

"I saw my mom’s gravesite for the first time today," Redmond told PEOPLE at a private gathering Friday evening to celebrate the opening of The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, founded to promote funding for alternative methods of cancer research. "I miss my mother so much. I’m glad she’s not suffering anymore. I know she’s looking down on us."

"I wish I could talk to her," Ryan said of his companion of more than 25 years. "Having Farrah gone has been very hard. It hurts. I don’t know what Redmond is going through. He is quiet about it, but he must be suffering terribly."

"Dad is an emotional man, and Farrah’s death has taken its toll on him," says Tatum, who recently reconciled with her father after years of estrangement. "But our being able to reconnect as a family is so beautiful. Farrah would be so happy that we’re all here."

Shannon Brown to appear in Monica's new music video

For the seven Bolly addicts on ONTD... Race 2 cast has been finalized.

The principal star cast of 'Race 2', the sequel to the smash hit 'Race', is finally in place. The makers of 'Race' -- producer Ramesh Taurani and director duo Abbas-Mustan -- have confirmed Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan from the first part, while John Abraham will join the star cast of the sequel.Reportedly, he will be the antagonist in the sequel. In the past, John had enacted negative roles in 'Aetbaar', 'Dhoom', 'Zinda' and 'New York' and had left a strong impression in each of those roles.

There's talk that Abbas-Mustan are keen to cast arch rivals Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in the sequel, but producer Ramesh Taurani denies it. "We haven't finalized the leading ladies yet. It's speculation," he states. Taurani also adds that Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu, who had enacted pivotal parts in 'Race', wouldn't feature in the sequel, which is expected to roll early next year.

Prince Harry brings heat at Mets game, throws out 1st pitch at CitiField

For a polo player, Prince Harry's got a pretty regal pitching arm.

The redheaded royal looked nervous before throwing out the ceremonial first ball at Citi Field Saturday.

But after the announcer said, "Prince Harry, It's your pitch!" his Royal Highness loosened his shoulders and threw the ball solidly into catcher Rod Barajas' glove.

Barajas shook the prince's hand and a grinning Harry mugged wiping sweat from his brow before stepping into the Mets dugout to chat with the players.

Harry arrived Friday for a three-day visit to promote fellowship between British and U.S. war veterans.

The 25-year-old prince, who served in Afghanistan, will walk with wounded veterans in Central Park this morning.

Thank goodness Miley Cyrus isn't on Twitter anymore. If she was, she'd probably be hearing from a lot angry of Twilight fans, just like Emma Roberts did when she announced she was Team Jacob.

Cyrus makes no bones about it. "I hate vampires,"

So no Edward and Bella for her. But what about the more risqué, not-very-tame True Blood?

Probably not gonna happen, either.

"What channel is that on?" she asks when we urge her to check out the hit bloodsucking HBO show.

"We don't have HBO," she said, adding that her mom only gets "about 10 channels" at their house. "So we don't watch a lot of TV. We don't know what's on. All we have is like the Disney Channel and Nick at Nite because my sister is only 10 years old."

Again, we tell her to give Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and the gang a chance.

"I'll think about it," she said. "I'll have to YouTube it or something."

Or, she added with a laugh, "You can send me the DVDs."

Well, my fellow Pottermaniacs, here’s a little something to tide you over once you finish watching that teaser clip for the ten millionth time. It’s a video of Rupert Grint and Oliver Phelps — or Ron Weasley and his big bro George, if you prefer — rapping along to the Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)” at some sort of Universal Studios karaoke night.

The footage, which you can find after the jump, is pretty shoddy in quality. As The Sun mercilessly but fairly notes, Grint’s performance is “hardly spellbinding.” (Get it? Spell? Har, har.) C’mon, though. The sight of two of my favorite actors from the Potter movies fumbling their way through a hip-hop classic has to be good for at least five to ten minutes of afternoon distraction, wouldn’t you say? At least Grint flows better than the Situation.


ETA: Sorry people didn't know this was posted. I checked the tags :(

Whatever, it's Saturday night. Let's just break out the butterbeer and firewhiskey, it's time to have a partayyyyyyyyyyyyy.


harry potter v twilight

I'm so sick of everyone saying Twilight is better than Harry Potter or Harry Potter is better than Twilight. Which one is seriously the best?
—Ariel, via the A.B. inbox

I have an answer. A definitive, once-and-for-all, never-ever-seriously-ever-to-be-questioned answer. Not just an opinion, but a scientific, quantifiable, fact-based answer to the question: Which is better, Twilight or Harry Potter?

And here it is:

I am tired of seeing people say Twilight is better than Harry Potter. To the people who hate Harry Potter, idg y'all, these books turned a shitload of kids on to reading. Regardless of whether you like HP or not, you can't deny the fact that it's done good in the world.

The Situation Helps New Yorkers Celebrate Gay Pride

A topless, oiled up The Situation, Vinny and Ronnie on the cover of The Village Voice’s annual Queer Issue is humorous enough by itself. It truly is. Yet the cover becomes even more iconic when one learns that the trio had no clue they were posing for the paper's annual gay issue, above a headline "The Guido Ideal"; about Jersey Shore homosexuals on the downlow.


But don't worry, these three are very, very, very straight. Or so says their photographer, Carrie Schechter.

"They just wanted me to take beautiful pictures, they wanted me to sculpt the light", she said. "That's all I knew, I want them to get more money and success because they're just great people and they deserve it" she said. "These guys are 100 percent straight men. They walk outside and women materialize."

We'll take your word for it, Carrie. The 'women materlizing' part.

Two bitchy old men gang up on National Treasure

X Factor Judges Slam Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has been slated by her fellow X Factor judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh after the pair suggested Chezza can't sing.

Walsh and Cowell ganged up on the Girls Aloud star during yesterday's auditions after raunchy girl band Madame Butterfly came on stage at London's ExCel centre.

Simon had a pop at Cheryl, telling the four girls that they should not take inspiration from UK acts like Girls Aloud.

The music mogul asked Madame Butterfly, who they were influenced by saying: "I bet you only like American groups, like Destiny's Child."

The 3 Words singer appeared angry by Cowell's catty comments but remained tight lipped after one of the wannabes from the band claimed they were a GA fan.

Louis was next to upset Chez, after a Romanian male model Adrian performed her number 1 hit single Fight For This Love for the judges.

The hopeful had the crowd in hysterics as he wailed his way through the Cheryl song, singing out of tune and delivering an overall cringe-worthy version of the track.

26-year old Cole, who is thought to be reverting back to to her maiden name of Tweedy laughed at Adrian's attempt, claiming he had made a 'great song choice.'

Westlife manager Louis soon wiped the smile from Cheryl's face, slamming her singing skills stating: "That was about as good as you can do it live."

Simon sniggered at his pals comments with Chez said to be 'furious' by the way the pair had acted towards her.

A source told The Sun: "Their nasty comments really hit a nerve with her. She's never been fully confident about her singing ability, especially since launching her solo career and not having the other girls on stage."

They added: "To be humiliated in front of thousands of people by Simon and Louis was really a step too far."

The X Factor judges were also booed yesterday by furious fans of the show after arriving two hours late - keeping 3,000 audience members waiting outside in the uncomfortable heat.


yaaaaaay a cheryl cole tag! :D
