The Twilight stars WISH they had great memories like these

...but I'm willing to bet they'd like to forget their franchise ever happened :D

OMG Dan is such a spaz and I love it! These kids are just too adorable for words.

Oh and apparently Dan is more attractive than RPattz.....

according to Hello Magazine :)


Twitter, Time, critics and the general population of Earth pretty much thinks Twilight sucks.

Suck that magical hobbit's big balls, Twihards. :) I say that with love, of course.

stephanie pratt reveals that the hills is FAKE

After six seasons of catfights and controversies, MTV’s most popular “reality” series, The Hills, is coming to an end. OK! sat down with 24-year-old Stephanie Pratt at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, Calif., where she shed light on the things that were real on the series — like her friendships — and exposed the show’s craziest fabrications, such as her tabloidready “fight” with Kristin Cavallari.

How do you feel about The Hills coming to an end? Will you still see Lo Bosworth and Audrina Patridge after it’s over?
That’s the thing: It really doesn’t matter that the show’s over, because in real life Lo and Audrina really are my best friends. So I know I’ll continue to see them a couple times a week. But I’m going to really miss the crew — we’re like family.

What’s the real story behind your feud with Kristin Cavallari? Why did she accuse you of spreading rumors about her drug use?
You know, that really wasn’t Kristin. She was told to say it. To tell a story on the show, for someone to take the blame, that’s kind of what we signed up for. We’d be filming a scene and she’d be like, “I’m sorry.” And I’d say, “Whatever, let’s just do this scene and go get coffee.” I was never mad at Kristin. I knew all along what was happening.

Young Veins release uninteresting music video, remain uninteresting while doing so.

I'd like to dramatically doff my cap to The Young Veins and their video for "Change." A while back we did a little roundup of videos that pay homage to olde-timey TV shows, but I don't think I've ever seen a clip that gets it so right.

"Change" finds Ryan Ross and Jon Walker continuing with the '60s fetish that first appeared when they were still members of Panic! At The Disco. Like Nirvana's "In Bloom" clip, it's an homage to The Beatles' legendary appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

The difference is in the details. From the slow raising of the lights, the film stock to the static movements of the band members themselves, everything is perfect. Heck, The Young Veins even sound like they're from the '60s.

It's not the first time this modern band has indulged in some nostalgia. The group is heavily indebted to The Beach Boys for its Take A Vacation album artwork.

James Cameron Gets a Black Eyed 3-D Movie

Mega-director James Cameron and the Black Eyed Peas are joining forces on a new project -- a movie "based" on the group's international tours ... and it will be released in 3-D!

Will.i.am tells VIBE, "Right now we are planning our 3-D tour movie and James Cameron is directing it ... The Peas are filming it in South America. People will be able to see us in the theater with the 3-D glasses and everything."

He adds, "There will be a storyline that [Cameron] came up with, which will be dope ... It’s a full-length film and it's based around our tour activities."

The movie -- still untitled -- is scheduled for release early next year.

Nicole Richie’s Ground Hog Day

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yesterday Nicole Richie arrived at traffic school classes in LA wearing the exact same outfit she had worn twice before to the same location.

She wore ray ban aviator sunglasses, a Hudson denim jacket, a floral print dress, black tights and Balenciaga bag.

I used to love play spot the difference.

The differences I spotted were that her scarf is tied differently and her jacket is button different in all 3 pictures.

Her bag is carried on the opposite arm in the last 2 pictures. Her hair is lighter – but that could just be the sun – and she’s carrying a coffee in the last picture.

Can you spot any other differences?

Katherine and Joe Jackson are set to make a bundle off of their various Michael Jackson business ventures. But Katherine and her hubby haven't figured out ... someone is waiting in the wings to take away everything they make.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine and Joe owe more than $13 million to a South Korean newspaper -- the Segye Times. The paper gave Joe, Katherine, and Jermaine a $5.5 million advance for a Jackson family concert series that never got off the ground. The newspaper sued in 1994, won a $4 mil judgment which has swelled with interest to more than $13 mil.

Edwin Bradley, a lawyer for the Segye Times tells TMZ, his client will go after anything Katherine and Joe make -- and that includes profits from Katherine's book, the movie projects she's producing with Howard Mann (pictured right) -- everything.

Ironically, Katherine's allowance from the MJ estate could be in jeopardy, since she's making money off of her son on the side. But the allowance could actually be protected from garnishment.

We're told the newspaper will go to court on September 14 to try and wrestle money earmarked for Katherine from the MJ trust. Sources tell us, however, there is a big fat zero in the trust now, because the estate is in debt.

Bottom line ... Whatever Katherine makes outside the estate will probably end up lining someone else's pocket.

To honour the return of our favourite TV geeks here’s a Q&A with Chris O’Dowd who plays Roy.

What’s Roy got coming up in the new series?
I’d say this year probably even more so than last year, Roy is coming out of his shell in terms of his social interaction with women.

What sort of reaction do you get on the street?
People are very, very positive. Because it’s such a friendly show; we don’t take pops at people really and there’s very little negativity in it, so it would be a strange thing to be very annoyed with it. So the reaction that I get is really nice. A lot of IT people really love it and I do hear a lot of women saying. “Oh my God, he’s just like my boyfriend,” and all that. People are very nice and a lot of IT geek girls find Roy very attractive.

Britney Hits Up Starbucks

Britney let her hair hang out on a standard Starbucks run Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles. Showing off her body in tight and tiny shorts and a see-through tank top, Spears revealed her patterned bra and exposed her cute underwear. The singer’s thigh muscles looked very well-defined. When her bodyguards lead her the wrong way past her car, Spears put on a display of unflattering facial expressions and growled in frustration.


Why Team Jacob always has to lose in Twilight


Watching Twilight: Eclipse in the theater is like going to a sporting event. There are teams; there is cheering. But one team is always doomed to lose. What fantasy is being fed by this strange competition?

I will confess up front: I am Team Jacob, all the way. Have been since the first movie, when Jake was a skinny kid from the wrong side of the treeline. Though Twilight and New Moon showed main character Bella torn between vampy Edward and wolfy Jacob, Eclipse is all about how and why she rejects Jacob for the last time. When evil vamp Victoria raises an army of newborn vamps to slaughter Bella, the local wolf pack has to work with the vampire Cullen family to drive the menace out of Forks. And that drives Bella toward Jacob in a way she's never been before.

The reasons why she rejects him are key to understanding what Eclipse is really about.

Did Fox do bridezilla act?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Sounds like the hush-hush, quickly organized wedding of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green on Saturday was quite the operation.

A source who worked with the couple on their secret nuptials at the Four Seasons Hualalai resort on Hawaii's Big Island revealed, ''there were far more security people than guests'' at the hotel for the wedding -- but, after all, that guest list only included about a half dozen pals.

According to the hotel insider, Fox, the star of the "Transformers" movies, ''was a handful'' and very demanding. Quipped the source -- paraphrasing the late Lloyd Bentsen's famous debate zinger about Dan Quayle, ''She may think she's a young Angelina Jolie, but I know Angelina Jolie, and she's no Angelina Jolie!''

• As part of the elaborate schemes employed to ward off leaks to the press, Green was registered as ''David Black'' and Fox assumed the identity of ''Mira Wolf.'' Clever, huh?

Both bride and groom wore wigs and hats to help disguise themselves, and their security detail was carefully selected -- so as not to look like bodyguards. One team apparently was very convincing, ''looking like a bunch of twentysomething silly housewives having a girls' vacation away from their husbands and kids,'' the source said with a laugh.

Fox was pretty upset when she lost the two-carat diamond from her engagement ring setting on the beach. But Green quickly ordered a replacement ring from L.A. and had it flown out immediately. The good news: They found the first sparkler -- and Fox got to keep both rings!

• Despite the wedding turning out fine, the source added, ''Megan's so bossy. The way she was ordering [Brian] around. ... I don't see this one lasting.''

Ciara vs Katy Perry

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ciara’s new album, Basic Instinct, has finally gotten a firm release date, and it looks like it’ll have some steep competition.

The R&B star’s fourth album will be released on August 24, she announced on Twitter.

Led by the sexy groove “Ride” featuring Ludacris, Basic Instinct will go head-to-head with pop star Katy Perry’s long-awaited sophomore album, Teenage Dream, being released the same day.

Perry’s collection of sticky sweet pop tunes has already got a leg up on the competition. Teenage Dream’s first single, “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg, has spent four week on top the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Basic Instinct is the follow-up to Ciara’s album, Fantasy Ride, which was released last year to lukewarm sales.

Danielle Staub Hopes Costar’s Daughter Will ‘Take the High Road’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In January, Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashley Holmes was found guilty of assaulting costar Danielle Staub, following a hair-pulling incident that will play out on the July 12 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Now, Staub says she can relate to her costar’s daughter, who’s also been in verbal fights with her mom on the show.

“I was there at one point in my life,” Staub told PEOPLE at Target’s Party for Good event. “I can see in her a lot of what I was headed towards.”

On the show’s first season, scandalous details of Staub’s past were revealed, including her arrest in 1986, when she was charged as an accessory in a kidnap and ransom plot.

Though Laurita tried to stand up for Staub on the explosive season 1 finale, the women were no longer friends when season 2 began. Since then Staub, 46, and Holmes, 19, began a Facebook feud on a recent episode and a trailer teases there’s more drama to come, including the incident that led to the teen’s assault charge.

“Hopefully she’s at that crossroads where she’ll take the high road and she’ll make the right choices,” Staub said.

She added that she prays that all the children of The Real Housewives of New Jersey won’t go down the road that she followed when she was young. (Laurita also has two sons Nicholas, 1, and CJ, 7; Caroline Manzo has three children Albie, 24; Lauren, 22; and Christopher, 21; Teresa Giudice has four daughters Gia, 9, Gabriella, 5, Milania, 4, and Adriana, born last September).

“I’d hate to see any of their children make the decisions I made that were wrong at such an early age in their life,” Staub said. “It’ll change them forever.”

Disney royalty has passed away

Disney D23 has reported that Ilene Woods, best known to Disney fans as the original voice of Cinderella, has passed away at the age of 81. No additional details have been provided at this time.

Woods was offered the opportunity to audition for Cinderella after she had recorded demos of songs from the film for songwriters Mack David and Jerry Livingston who had become friends with her through a music radio show she once hosted. After hearing the recordings, Walt Disney extended an invitation for Woods to audition for the film — she won the role, but never met Walt until after the film had been completed.

Ilene Woods was named a Disney Legend in 2003.

It's like a dream! A wonderful dream come true!


In case you hadn't heard, Scream 4's totally gonna bomb y'all

All is not well in Woodsboro. As we previously reported, significant script changes have created some tension on the set of "Scream 4."

Lauren Graham's role was so reduced that she dropped out of the project, and now it appears that Hayden Panetierre's part has changed as well... and who's at fault may surprise you.

Zap2it has learned that the slasher flick's script is now in the hands of Ehren Kruger, not the creator of the franchise, Kevin Williamson.

In fact, word is that Williamson's involvement with the project has come to an end entirely -- meaning "Scream 5" is a no-go at this time.

Kruger's writing resume includes "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "The Ring," and more significantly, "Scream 3." While the first two "Scream" movies, penned by Williamson, were adored by fans and critics alike, "Scream 3" was... well, not.

Hayden Panettiere's role, which one source says "used to be really sharp" has now been "dumbed down significantly." The actress is "beyond frustrated with the changes." Another source says that Lake Bell, who had to drop out of "Scream 4" due to scheduling changes, "dodged a bullet."

To make up for the actors that have dropped out of the production, Alison Brie, Marley Shelton, Erik Knudson, and Adam Brody have all signed on recently.

What gives, Wes Craven? You're supposed to butcher Ghostface's victims... not the script.

Kevin Spacey sings with his idol Paul McCartney

Kevin Spacey proved that even the biggest Hollywood star has his own idol, as he jumped at the chance to jam with Sir Paul McCartney.

The actor and Old Vic boss got the chance of a lifetime at a party for 500 at Battersea Power Station, which raised almost £700,000 for the theatre.

The former Beatle agreed to perform after four years of being wooed by Spacey. Finding himself stage-side, the actor politely asked the band's bouncers whether he could join Sir Paul — then ran past to start singing before they had a chance to say no.

Sir Paul declined to comment on Spacey's pop potential but said: “He rocked his socks off — it was fantastic. We loved having him up on stage.”

Guests paid £500 a head, with £10,000 premium tables hosted by the likes of restaurateur Richard Caring and chairman of the Evening Standard Evgeny Lebedev. Party-goers included Joely Richardson, James Corden, Jeremy Irons, Sir Patrick Stewart, Neil Pearson, Stephen Daldry and Sir Peter Hall. Boris Becker and Bernie Ecclestone, Mary McCartney, James McCartney, Stephen Fry, Dame Judi Dench were also there.

Colin Farrell set to play Ozzy Osbourne in new bio pic

Former Dublin hellraiser, Colin Farrell, is set to play Black Sabbath’s Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne in a new bio pic.

The Paramount Pictures and MTV Film’s have revealed that Colin Farrell would be their ideal choice to play the Brummie rocker.

An spokesperson joked ““At least Colin and Ozzy are on the same page when it comes to using four-letter words!”

Another insider has been quoted saying “Colin drinks, he smokes, he womanizes. He's just a sleeve tattoo away from being a real rock star.”

However, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne both have their own idea.

Ozzy has said that he wants an actor from Birmingham, his hometown in the north of England to play his part to make it more authentic. He said “I'd like to get a Birmingham guy to play the young lad in it because Americans can't do a good Brummie accent.”
Sharon has also mentioned that she would like Johnny Depp to play her husband’s part. Well we can guess why that is.

However, Ozzy seems to be sticking to his guns. “I don't want a Johnny Depp or someone from the Hobbit films. I want someone who knows Birmingham. I'm from Birmingham, and it would be good to get someone from Birmingham to play me,” said the Prince of Darkness.

He added “I'd like to do something like an X Factor audition, but Sharon does all that kind of thing, you know.”

The 61-year-old Black Sabbath rocker has certainly had an interesting like. So interesting in fact that scientist at a DNA researchers in St. Louis are studying Ozzy to find out why he’s still alive having partied hard all his life. Ozzy and Keith Richards should compare notes.

Gloria Allred: Mel Gibson Has "Hatred of Racial Minorities and Women"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
High-powered attorney Gloria Allred is slamming Mel Gibson after an audiotape has surfaced of Gibson, 54, apparently spewing a racial slur at ex Oksana Grigorieva.

“If in fact these quotes are accurate, Mr. Gibson’s statements are appalling," Allred tells UsMagazine.com in a statement. "They exhibit the worst kind of racism and sexism. They clearly demonstrate a woman hating temperament which, in my opinion, is dangerous to women.

"Also his contempt for African Americans is evident,"
she continues. "He is clearly in need of anger management and intense counseling for his hatred of racial minorities and women. I am very concerned about the risk of harm that I believe he presents to women and minorities unless he receives effective counseling."

A spokesman for Gibson has declined to comment on the audiotape due to pending litigation between the actor, 54, and Grigorieva, 40. Gibson's lawyer also was unavailable for comment.

The actor famously spewed anti-Semitic slurs during a July 2006 DUI arrest.

Turner Broadcasting tries to make peace with Tyler Perry

Turner Broadcasting is trying to avoid a house of pain with producer Tyler Perry.

Perry, who has two shows on Turner's TBS cable channel ("House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns") was furious about a recent episode of the animated series "The Boondocks" that ran on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block. Cartoon Network also is owned by Turner Broadcasting.

The episode in question -- "Pause" -- which first ran June 20, lampooned Perry, the creator of several hit movies, some of whom star him as Madea, an eccentric grandmother whose antics often land her in hot water. The show, which is executive produced by Aaron McGruder, who also created the now-defunct comic strip of the same name, featured a thinly veiled version of Perry named Winston Jerome. In the episode, Jerome is shown to be a closeted cross-dresser who uses religion to hide his lifestyle.

Soon after the episode aired, Perry got in touch with executives at Turner including entertainment chief Steve Koonin and Phil Kent, the chief executive of Turner Broadcasting. Perry complained loudly about the episode and even threatened to rethink his relationship with the company, people familiar with the situation said. A spokesman for Perry declined to comment.

Kent, who is a low-key executive but also a former talent agent, put his skills to work and acknowledged to Perry that the actor-producer should have been given a warning about the episode. The show, which has aired twice, is not scheduled to air again on Cartoon Network, although the company would not say if it has been banned from the channel.

Calvin Klein Remakes the Little White Dress From ‘Clueless’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When Ilaria Urbinati, the co-owner of L.A. boutique Confederacy met with Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa about stocking Calvin Klein Collection, the stylist-turned-shopkeeper had one very specific request: Remake the little white dress from Clueless!

“I sort of geeked out on him, [explaining] how my formative-years love of Calvin Klein was partly based on the little white minidress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless,” Urbanati told InStyle.com. “I re-eanacted the entire scene with Cher and her father—’Cher, what are you wearing?’ ‘A dress!’ ‘Says who?’ ‘Calvin Klein!’–and of course I said, ‘Francisco, you need to remake that dress!’”

And he didn’t need much convincing. After watching a clip of the famous scene, the designer had the original pattern unearthed from the archives in Italy and re-created exclusively for Urbinati’s boutique, reports Instyle.com.

The slim-fitting white slipdress—as well as a hot red version—are already available at shopconfederacy.com for $916! Though we might be saving up for awhile, we’re sure one of Confederacy’s star customers, such as Jessica Alba or Ashley Greene, may just scoop one up soon enough.


Hermione's Hand Cleaned Up for Theaters

What's the deal with Emma Watson's hand in the new "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" trailer? Well, Hermione (played by Emma Watson) is a wizard with special powers, which might explain why her hand is magically clean, despite looking dramatically different in an earlier preview of the movie.

In a sneak peak of "Deathly Hallows" that appeared on the DVD for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," Emma Watson's hand in the same scene was clearly covered in blood (read: something along the lines of corn syrup and red food coloring).

Here's a comparsion with the DVD sneak peak and the same shot in the trailer:

Why the change? A representative for Warner Brothers, the studio behind "Harry Potter," didn't have an official comment on the matter at press time, but the Motion Picture Association of America can be pretty tricky when it comes to trailers. As anyone who's sat through the previews that show before a movie knows, most trailers begin with a notice that it has been "approved for all audiences." Translation: the trailer is as suitable for children as it is for adults. In other words: No blood.

A popular recent example of a trailer being edited so as to meet the MPAA's standards for appropriateness happened with the one for "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"(yes, the one with the monkeys). In a scene that takes place at the beginning of the film, Indy and company are captured by Russians -- of course, those menancing Russians have guns. So, of course, when the scene found it's way into previews, there were no guns to be found in that scene.


If it weren't for the savvy eyes of some the devoted Harry Potter fans at MuggleNet, no one might've noticed the change. What Warner Brothers did with the "Deathly Hallows" trailer looks good. Hermione's clean hand looks like Hermione's clean hand. Contrast that with the "Indiana Jones" editing incident, which resulted in pants that were clearly computer generated (where the gun used to be): what was intended to protect audiences from seeing something too adult probably caused a lot more of an uprising than if it had been left as is.

Amazon.com's synopsis of The Talking Cure:

Overshadowed by portents of the coming wars, Zurich and Vienna are the
setting for this tale of emotional vicissitude and intellectual debate. The
Talking Cure is an intimate picture of the birth of psychoanalysis and of two
intense and inextricably interwoven relationships. Carl Jung uses Sigmund
Freud's "talking cure" on Sabina, a young Russian hysteric with whom he will
fall in love. Impressed with Jung's results, Freud anoints him his successor,
but when Jung develops his own theories they part ways. Sensitive and
intelligent, The Talking Cure illuminates the origins of one of the twentieth
century's most influential schools of thought.

Ashley Greene's Plea for Privacy.

Looking fabulous as always, Ashley Greene graces the cover of the July 2010 issue of ASOS magazine.

Hitting newsstands today (July 2), the Alice Cullen cutie got all glammed up for a striking spread in the monthly publication.

During her interview, Miss Greene chatted about everything from getting chosen for "Twilight" and her troubles finding any privacy in the Big Apple.

Of her "Twilight" casting call, Ashley tells, “I was 20 when I got cast in Twilight. I was still working at this restaurant in LA called The Belmont Cafe and I was reading the books while I was there. I freaked out when they told me I’d got the role, like, holy crap, this might change my life! I don’t feel that anyone could have expected this though. It’s still insane and I still have to pinch myself.”

As for her desire to get a little privacy every now and then, she dishes, “The other day, I had eight paparazzi following me. For what? To watch me eat ice cream? It’s just silly. You can say it’s something that comes with the job, and it’s what everyone wants, for people to know who you are. When you can’t function in your everyday life and you can’t walk around without something being stated, it’s unnecessary and it takes away from what we’re here to do. It’s why I’m looking for an apartment in New York. There is so much more going on — there’s the music scene and Wall Street and I really don’t think everything would drop just because I walked in a room. It’s nice.”

Jonas Brothers release new world tour dates; cancel several North American dates

Jonas Brothers announced today an all-new world tour schedule that now includes additional shows in both Latin America and Europe as well as second shows in major U.S. markets. The tour, spanning three continents, will feature special guest and Hollywood Records label mate, Demi Lovato and will combine spectacular production with unrivaled performances of both artists' biggest hits.

Recent changes in the Jonas Brothers schedule and the addition of several international tour markets have shifted the previously announced routing for 2010. The Live In Concert tour will now kick off two weeks later in August and includes second shows in several North American cities including Holmdel, NJ, Jones Beach, NY, Boston, MA and Toronto, ON. Some previously announced North American Live In Concert tour shows are no longer on the 2010 routing, however the Jonas Brothers will look to return to these markets as soon as possible.

Vanessa Hudgens Looks Back on Nude Photo Scandal

Back in 2007 she was mortified when nude photos of her were leaked onto the internet, and even today Vanessa Hudgens says she has a hard time with it.

The “High School Musical” babe told press that while she’s moved on from the drama, she becomes upset when it’s brought up.

“I think it has made me stronger. But it still hurts. It sucks because they were supposed to be private, but at the same time a lot of actresses do it [nudity].”

As for dealing with her massive level of fame, Hudgens added, “I get hot flashes! I can't breathe, and I get claustrophobic. It's a very odd business. I do it because I love acting, but I don't know if I'll ever get used to it.”

Lilith Fair Cancels 10 More Dates

The organizers of the 2010 Lilith Fair — initially one of the most-anticipated tours of the summer — have just announced the cancellation of 10 dates: Salt Lake City, Montreal, Raleigh, Charlotte, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Birmingham, Austin, Houston, and Dallas.

These cancellations come on the back of previously-announced pulled shows in Nashville and Phoenix, and in the wake of artists like Norah Jones and Kelly Clarkson bailing from one or more scheduled dates on the tour. Meanwhile, the shows that are going on — tonight is the tour’s third night, in Vancouver — are suffering from embarrassingly low attendance, and being moved to venues half the size of the original stops.

In the just-released cancellation announcement, Lilith co-founder Terry McBride says, “We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being cancelled outright. Everyone involved with the tour would like to apologize to the fans and artists scheduled to play in these markets, and express appreciation for all the support for the festival’s return. Lilith remains the only tour of its kind, and we are confident that fans will be amazed by what each date has to offer.”

Refunds are of course being offered, and fans are encouraged to check the website to find out how the cancelled shows may affect the artist lineups in their towns. But meanwhile, it’s time to put on your fantasy management caps, Mixers: Why is this tour struggling? Head Lilith lady Sarah McLachlan recently told EW she thought this summer’s Fair was less of a “need” and more of a “want” — so do you people not want it? Or do you really not have the money to make it out to the show? Discuss.


Who are you going to see this summer, ONTD? I looked into this but the artists at my locations (Philly or NYC) are just not worth it. Instead I'm seeing The Gaslight Anthem in July.

MUSE: next album to be "more intimate"

In a recent interview, Matt Bellamy of MUSE discusses the band's next album:

"I think maybe the next album we would like to try to do something more personal and more intimate sounding. You know, I would like to try and find something more down to earth in sound. I think we've been pushing very much musically very much towards large scale, live performances, and I think that's started to have a big influence on our studio work, so I think for the next album it might be a good time to kind of draw back from that and try to rediscover ourselves, a more intimate side of music."


OMFG THANK GOODNESS, hopefully we can get back to something like Absolution and away from The Resistance

ron ron talks game 7, why he sees a psychologist, and working with dr. dre

No stranger to controversy, LA Laker, Ron Artest continues maneuver his career to the beat of his own ball. Coming into the NBA about a decade ago, the proud Queensbridge native has consistently proved his athletic ability on the basketball court. However, his rough play, suspensions and admitted “wild behavior” early in his career have earned him a reputation as one of the NBA’s infamous bad boys. But with his first NBA championship title in place, Artest has become a hero of sorts to fans on both coasts.

From an unknown vacation spot, RonRon phoned into VIBE to discuss his surreal performance in game seven, his reasons for seeing a psychologist and working with Dr. Dre. Let the games begin.

It's a 30 Rock (kind of) post!

So last night I went to go see Equus in East Hampton starring Sam Underwood and my bb Alec. It was pretty interesting, I've never really known anything about the story except Harry Potter was in it a few years back and he was naked on stage. Same thing applied to this version, except I mostly went to see Alec in a stage setting.

I got the added bonus of tracking down Judah Friedlander as well - you can't miss the dude - he's the only one with the balls to wear a baseball hat to a 'Hamptons function'. Judah was extremely friendly and in general awesome, Alec had to be exhausted but was still nice enough to stop and chat for a few seconds.

Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner Guaranteed at Least $25 Million Apiece for the Last Two Twilights

With Twilight: Eclipse closing in on what box office watchers say will surely be a $200+ million weekend, why have the faces of Summit Entertainment's executives taken on such a deathly pallor? It might be because Vulture hears that they've just agreed to write some very big checks, indeed: Insiders tell us that Summit will pay stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner each a whopping $25 million against 7.5 percent of the theatrical gross for starring in the next and last two Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn, Parts One and Two.

How much money will they end up taking home? The previous Twilight film, New Moon, took in almost $710 million worldwide, and Eclipse is on pace to exceed that. But let’s conservatively assume that both Breaking Dawns do as well as New Moon: After factoring in exhibitor splits, a lesser studio share for international releases, and other typical debited fees that would give you a migraine if they were explained here, each star would take in another $16 million total, giving them all final paydays of $41 million.

Meanwhile, Vulture has learned that Universal, upon hearing that this mammoth payday was being finalized, quickly sealed its deal with Lautner to star in Stretch Armstrong, for which they'll pay him $7.5 million, a sum that now seems like a yard sale.

Author Christopher Hitchens diagnosed with Cancer, Cancels Book Tour

Author Christopher Hitchens Diagnosed with Cancer
Polemicist cancels book tour promoting autobiography and will undergo chemotherapy


Owen Bowcott
The Guardian
Thursday 1 July 2010

The author and polemicist Christopher Hitchens yesterday announced he was cutting short a promotional book tour in order to undergo chemotherapy treatment.

There were reports that the the British-born writer, who was a heavy smoker until giving up several years ago, had been diagnosed with cancer.

In a statement issued by his US publisher, Twelve, the 61-year-old said: "I have been advised by my physician that I must undergo a course of chemotherapy on my oesophagus. This advice seems persuasive to me. I regret having had to cancel so many engagements at such short notice."

The firm gave no further details other than asking for his privacy to be respected. Hitchens launched a high profile book tour last month to promote his memoir Hitch-22, which tackles subjects ranging from the Middle East and Zimbabwe to his friendships with prominent writers including Salman Rushdie and Martin Amis. The volume has already entered the bestseller lists.

Hitchens has in the past described himself as "an essayist and a contrarian". As a journalist, critic and war correspondent, he has carved out a reputation for barbed repartee, scathing critiques of public figures and a fierce intelligence.

In his 2008 book "God Is Not Great", Hitchens put himself on a collision course with major religions through his advocacy of atheism.

He lives in Washington DC and became an American citizen in 2007, although also retains British citizenship. Hitchens appeared at the Guardian Hay Festival this summer.

Janeane Garofalo stands up for pubic hair

Janeane Garofalo Speaks Out Against Brazilian Waxing

Janeane Garofalo takes on Brazilian waxing in her new standup special "If You Will," and she explains her anti-pubic grooming stance in a new interview with Uinterview.com.

"It couldn't possibly be true that there are a lot of guys who find adult females with genitals that look pre-adolescent that attractive," she said. "If they do, that's a problem."

Janeane chalks up the obsession with hairlessness to a "national myth."

"I feel like we've been conned into thinking it's desirable to have that waxing done and that people like it," she continues. "I think it's a national myth that we have all gone along with for some reason."

Last year Janeane donned some arm pit hair extensions to promote energy conservation.

Paris Hilton detained for possession of marijuana in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG -- Paris Hilton was detained in the South African city of Port Elizabeth on Friday for possession of marijuana, two South African police officers said.

The officers spoke on condition of anonymity, since they were not authorized to release Hilton's name before she appeared in court.

A spokeswoman for police at Port Elizabeth, Brig. Marinda Mills, declined to confirm the name, but said a high profile person was appearing in court.

"This person is appearing in court right now. We cannot reveal information about her until she has appeared in court. I am here with the individual in court, we're waiting for the court to start," Mills told the Associated Press.

Hilton's Los Angeles-based publicist, Dawn Miller, said she was awaiting details from the court appearance before commenting.

A local radio station in Johannesburg said Hilton was detained outside the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium, following the quarterfinal match between Brazil and Netherlands.

Tiger Woods Now The One Getting Screwed.

As one source with direct knowledge of the terms of the divorce tells TMZ, "She'll be getting close to $100,000,000."

There have been reports Elin would score $750 million, but we have confirmed that figure is wrong. Indeed, as we first reported, Tiger is not even worth $750 million. We're told his net worth is somewhere between $500 and $600 million.

The $100 million is way more than Elin would have received under the prenup.

Sources say Elin will receive child support, but we do not know the specific amount.

As for the $100 million figure ... this is not speculation ... it comes from sources with direct knowledge of the property settlement agreement.

To put this in some perspective, Elin will be getting 10 times what Rachel Uchitel scored from Tiger.

Michael Lohan Believes Kim Kardashian Can Help Save Lindsay's Life

With Lindsay Lohan turning 24, many are wondering whether this year will truly be the actress’ moment to renew her career and her life.

One thing Lohan seems to have already jumpstarted is the expansion of her inner circle. The starlet has been recruiting some new friends, including reality TV vixen Kim Kardashian.

Kim and Lindsay have been writing to each other affectionately on their Twitter pages, with Kim even inviting the Mean Girls star to spend the Fourth of July with her in New York City.

“When are we hanging out?” Lindsay tweeted on June 30, to which Kim replied, “Come to NYC for the 4th! ...if not I am home the 5th! Must hang out asap!”

Kim and Lindsay as Hollywood’s new bffs? The unlikely pair has more going for it than what meets the eye according to Lindsay’s dad Michael who believes Kim, 29, is the perfect person to get his daughter back on the right track.

“Since the time I first met Kim 2 years ago in New York, I’ve thought she was a good influence on Lindsay,” Michael told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Even back then, and Kim will tell you this, I told her that I wanted her to befriend Lindsay so that she could help steer her in the right direction. I mean, look at Kim and what she’s accomplished. If you watched that reality show Double Exposure… the Lindsay you saw on that show is not the Lindsay people remember at the pinnacle of her career.

Michael told RadarOnline.com that he hopes to get the opportunity to wish Lindsay a happy birthday in person, when he flies to LA for her July 6 court hearing.

“I hope I have the opportunity to take her to dinner for her birthday,” he said. “I hope this year only brings only the best people and things into her life. But the greatest gift for her will be for her to get through her court case coming up.”

Michael continued, “Lindsay can have her life back. She, more than anybody, has the power to get back on track, but she just has to do it. And I know she will.”

Oksana Grigorieva was the target of another verbal attack today in New York -- but this time, the man calling her a "bitch" was Mickey Rourke. Moments ago in SoHo, Rourke defended Mel's N-word laced outburst -- the one in which he told the mother of his child she looked like a "f**king pig in heat" -- by telling us, "Sh*t happens." Rourke continued, "I wouldn't believe everything you hear ... you know ... I think he's a good dude, you know. And ah, screw the bitch!"

Is Eliza Dushku dropping hints about Ghostbusters 3?

The highly anticipated third film in the Ghostbusters franchise has been something of a frustration for fans following it, as news has been leaking for over a decade yet fans are still left without a film. However, things became much more real when, a few months ago, Harold Ramis said "Ghostbusters 3" had gone into pre-production and would be out by Christmas 2012, and rumors surrounding the cast started being spread, like Bill Murray possibly appearing as a ghost, and Eliza Dushku joining the team as a female Ghostbuster.

And now Eliza Dushku has really piqued fans curiosity, as she recently posted the above photo on her Twitter account, with the following tweet: "Check me out.. I REALLY like THIS get-up! Lol. Who ya gonna call!"

It could of course mean nothing, but word from the Supanova convention in Australia, where the above picture was taken, has Eliza saying that she's signed on to a big movie and is waiting for the studio to make an announcement.

So if that's true, could it be "Ghostbusters 3"? It seems highly likely. IMDB also has Eliza listed as "rumored" for the part of Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's upcoming "The Avengers", so it could be that, too. Either way, with SDCC just a few short weeks away, we shouldn't have to wait too much longer to find out.

In protest against 'The Last Airbender,' fans find empowerment

As protesters paraded outside the ArcLight Hollywood theater Thursday evening, signs filled the air with hand-written phrases such as "Support fair casting!" and "Hollywood is racist and too ignorant to know it!"  The chant of "Get it right, M. Night!" rose above the noise of Sunset Boulevard rush-hour traffic. Meanwhile, just inside the ArcLight's doors, an usher busied herself preparing rows of 3-D glasses for the next showing of "The Last Airbender."

two new PoTC 4 photos!

Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides has barely been in production for a month and behind the scenes set photos have already appeared online. First, Jerry Bruckheimer gave us a sneak peek at the location and the new director (Rob Marshall) and now a few images have surfaced featuring the big man himself, Captain Jack!

The photos come courtesy of PopSugar, and feature Johnny Depp dressed in Jack’s classic pirates gear. Even though it’s good to see him back in the swing of things it would be great to see what some of the newbies look like. The cast has grown significanlty with several new faces including Oscar winner Penelope Cruz and “Deadwood’s” Ian McShane. We want a visual of what Marshall’s version of Blackbeard will look like.

On Stranger Tides is currently filming in Hawaii and besides Depp, Cruz, and McShane, the film stars Geoffrey Rush, Stephen Graham, Sam Claflin, Greg Ellis, Gemma Ward, and The Losers Óscar Jaenada. The plot centers on the legend of Blackbeard the pirate and the search for the elusive Fountain of Youth.

Jake Pavelka not following Levi Johnston's and Ronnie Kroell's footsteps

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sure, he was always shirtless on “The Bachelor.” And yes, he boogied in his tighty-whities while competing on “Dancing With the Stars.” But that’s about as much skin as you’re ever going to see from Jake Pavelka.

Despite being offered a nude pictorial in Playgirl, <b>the 32-year-old reality hunk will not be stripping down for the magazine</b>.

"<b>Jake is not doing Playgirl - never considered it, never will</b>," his rep told Us Weekly.

While Pavelka won’t be following in Levi Johnston’s footsteps by baring his behind for the magazine, maybe Johnston would consider becoming the next Bachelor? Hmm…

cute pic of him with his ugly ex

seriously, who would want to marry or even date Levi Johnston? besides maybe Kathy Griffin.

I admit that Jake is generically good looking and his smile can look fake, etc. but I like his dimples and that his body isn't 0% body fat. I slightly respect him for not trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame by posing naked. that being said, I totally want to see him naked. even if it's a silly Playgirl shoot with (parts of) his pilot uniform and maybe aviators.

edit: when I submitted it was still a slow news day because I saw a post about Britney Spears ALLEGEDLY buying lingerie with no pics. so I figured people would rather imagine JP naked than her shopping.

Rosalie and Jessica join forces with Bruce Willis in Catch .44

I guess the casting call for CATCH .44 said "Must have experience in bloodsucking" as TWILIGHT’s Nikki Reed and True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll have now joined the cast.

The pair rounds out a trio of assassins led by Malin Akerman in a film with Bruce Willis and Forrest Whitaker. Willis plays a crime boss, Whitaker a delusional line cook and hitman, and the trio are “sent on a job that might be their last.” So essentially CHARLIE’S ANGELS with the McG stripped out of it I guess. That doesn’t sound like such a bad idea to me.

I like this trio, as all three are actresses who could use more exposure. Reed was one of the better characters of ECLIPSE, as we got to hear a little bit about her backstory which involves (spoilers) quite a bit more gang rape than I anticipated. Deborah Ann Woll is breaking hearts (and necks) on True Blood as Bill Compton’s baby vampire, and she’s done an excellent job on the show so far.

Malin Akerman I know as co-starring in the horrific HEARTBREAK KID with Ben Stiller, and also for being the one weak link in the acting chain in WATCHMEN. But maybe this would be the right role for her at last. I’ll look forward to a trailer, that’s for sure.



BILLBOARD: "[Bionic] the best mainstream pop album of the year thus far"


Billboard has finally reviewed "Bionic"...


NEW YORK (Billboard) - We may have love affairs with all kinds of gimmicky divas, but it takes Christina Aguilera to remind us that singing really matters. That's not to say the pop star's latest release, "Bionic," is all about her voice, a muscular acrobat that's become more elegant with age. Combine it with the inventive work of a diverse cast of producers and you've got the best mainstream pop album of the year thus far. Sure, "Bionic" was made for a post-Lady Gaga world, where the comparisons are inevitable and the sales stakes are high. But from the fidgety intro of the dub-tastic opening title track (produced by Santigold collaborators John Hill & Switch) to punk-brat driving song "My Girls" (produced by Le Tigre, with a guest rap from Peaches) to Aguilera's gloriously restrained delivery on "All I Need" (Sia Furler co-produced the vocals), the 18-song set shows an artist confident enough to take direct cues from her tuned-in creative team. Because she's bold enough to do it her way, Aguilera maintains her reign.

Bollywood Stepmom remake, 'We Are Family' teaser preview!

Here's the long awaited teaser trailer for the Bollywood remake of the 1998 movie, Stepmom, starring Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, and Ed Harris.

The movie's directed by Siddharth Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar. It stars Kajol (SO OBV IT'S GOING TO BE AN AMAZING MOVIE), Kareena Kapoor, and Arjun Rampal (unf).

I've been so looking forward to this movie! Especially since it has my 3 favorite people!!! I'm expecting to cry a lot since A)It's Stepmom and I cried in the original movie sfm B)It's bollywood so obviously they're going to make it super melodramatic. I do find it weird that they'd have song and dance sequences in a movie about cancer -_- but it IS bollywood and I will STILL love the heck out of it. Who else cringed at the title, though? Seriously, Bollywood?? After that gem of a title, 'I hate luv storys', you really couldn't find a better suited title for a movie??

Thoughts, ONTD? Fave bollywood movies? pics/fans of Arjun is more than welcome :) Also, this is my first post guys; mods, hope it's ok!

Pete Wentz Forms A New Band

Former Fall Out Boy bassist has revealed that
he has started his own electro-pop group called

"Bl4ck C4rds"

Pete Wentz is rumoured to have started a new band.

The former Fall Out Boy bassist has announced on his blog that he has launched an electro-pop group called Bl4ck C4ards with a link to the band's website.

Pete wrote on his blog: "If you enjoy it, keep coming back. If it's not for you than we understand... There will be no treasure hunt. Not viral campaign. Just the opposite - next week things will appear on this site in a very controlled distribution."

The group already have their own website, www.bl4ckc4rds.com, but it is not known who the other members are.

Earlier this year, Pete admitted he had "let go" of Fall Out Boy and would not return to the group after their planned hiatus.

He tweeted: "A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old. I don't plan on either. Can't imagine playing in FOB again.(sic)"

He later added: "As a band we grew apart. Letting go of this giant part of my life has been hard."

It’s back to square one for Joey Fatone and his wife, Kelly.

After the January birth of their second daughter, Kloey Alexandra, they felt a sense of déjà vu.

“It was like starting over again,” says Joey, 33. “Diapers, midnight feedings, all that. We hadn’t done it in nine years.”

The Fatones have quickly found their rhythm in taking care of a newborn. They don’t employ a nanny, instead taking turns as they care for Kloey, now 5 months old.

“I won’t say it’s always easy,” says Kelly, “but we’re making it work. It’s amazing how we remember how to do things.”

The house of Gaga

We knew Lady Gaga was rich — scribble-on-your-Birkin, custom-heelless-platform-shoe-ordering, maintain-a-team-of-stylists-and-craftsmen-for-your-own-personal-use rich. But Bel Air-mansion-leasing rich? We had no idea!

When Gaga goes to Hollywood, she stays in a six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home in the hills above Bel-Air. At a whopping $25,000 a month, it’s the kind of home that makes you wish you’d been a rock star, too – it’s clad in marble and expensive woods, has a gigantic pool out back and features a kitchen so gourmet it could be on the cover of Food+Wine. Further description from the RealEstalker, who broke the story:

"According to listing information the high-walled and gated residence sits at the tail end of a quiet cul-de-sac and measures 6,143 square feet. Interior amenities include an impress the guest style double height entry with marble floors and a curving staircase that would make Norma Desmond swoon with melodrama, a two-story living room wrapped in French doors and warmed by a fireplace with an intricately carved stone mantel piece and a family room with another fireplace and another intricately carved stone mantel piece and brown and cream colored vertical striped wall treatment. There is also an office/library with built-in shelving and French doors that open to the pool terrace and a gigantic gore-may kitchen with separate breakfast area and an adjacent outdoor eating area."

Of course, the room we really care about is the closet. And while it looks a little vanilla to handle all the fabulousness Gaga no doubt brings with her to California, it’s bigger than what we’re working with.

Drake postpones tour to stay by mom's side


NEW YORK — Drake is postponing his 10-city European tour because his mother is undergoing surgery.

The 23-year-old rapper says in a statement that he wants to support his mother during her recovery "just as she supported me through the years."

The statement doesn't say what kind of surgery Drake's mother is going to have.

The European leg of his "The Away From Home Tour" had been scheduled to kick off Friday in Norway. It will be rescheduled for November.

Drake will still tour in his home country of Canada, starting July 16 in Ottawa.

Last month, Drake released his first full-length album, the gold-selling "Thank Me Later."
