Is Gaga the next Madonna? Lets compare

Ask Billboard is updated every Friday. Submit your burning music questions to Gary Trust at askbb@billboard.com. Please include your first and last name, as well as your city, state and country, if outside the U.S.

Hey Gary,

I am a longtime reader of Chart Beat and enjoy reading these "Ask Billboard" questions.

Many people compare Lady Gaga to Madonna. I believe the two are equal in talent, as well as style. It is hard to compare the pair, though, because Lady Gaga released her first single ("Just Dance") 27 months ago, while Madonna released her first single ("Everybody") 333 months ago (or 322, if you consider "Holiday" Madonna's first mainstream hit).

I was wondering if you could compare any statistics between Lady Gaga and Madonna approximately two years into each artist's career.

Queen Cheryl working on second album

HARD-WORKING CHERYL COLE plans to jet out to LA as soon as X Factor goes to the boot camp stage so she can try to finish her second album.

The Geordie has started the follow-up to 3 Words and wants to wrap it up as soon as possible.

So instead of taking a break after the auditions stage, she's going to head for a California studio.

GIRLS ALOUD pal NICOLA ROBERTS has lent a hand, writing a track she hopes will end up on the album.

A source said: "Cheryl is champing at the bit to make more music so she's doing everything to fit in sessions.

The X Factor contestants she mentors will probably be flown to LA for boot camp so she can spend even more time making tunes."

Somehow I can't see that Girls Aloud reunion happening for a while.

i want girls aloud back but we all know it's nadine's fault anyway...


Gaga has bodyguard attack paparazzo, remains flawless

A photographer trying to nab a photo of Gaga outside of the Ritz Carlton hotel in Boston on Wednesday night was attacked by one of her security officers. The scuffle occurred around 11:00 PM when she was driving her car into a covered parking garage.

“I’m actually a fan of her music, I like her, and to have her bodyguard just punch me in the face is pretty upsetting,” the photographer, Carl Wu, commented in an interview. “He punched me in the face over here, I fell down to the ground and he pushed down to the ground and said ‘Get out!’ My battery pack flew out of my bag and I was like ‘Whoa, wait a minute, you can’t do this.’”

Wu was injured during the altercation and is considering pressing charges. “I have a cut on my lip over here and he just pushed me out. All this time Lady Gaga was just sitting in the car, and I guess she watched the whole thing. When I got to the top of the garage she went inside the hotel.” Lady Gaga’s camp has not commented on the incident as of yet.


Prada Fall 2010 Ad Campaign

Models are multi-tasking these days.

Angela Lindvall
appears in the ad teaser for Prada’s Fall 2010 singing “Fever”.

She actually has quite a nice voice.

The steamy campaign featuring clothes, bags and eyewear was shot by Steven Meisel.

I do like the ads, but there is a lot going on in some of the shots making it hard to focus or pay attention on one thing.

I found my self playing “Where’s Miranda?”

Sam Trammell says he “loved” filming a gay love scene on HBO’s True Blood.

Trammell plays shapeshifting vampire Sam Merlotte, the owner of Melotte’s restaurant in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps where vampires are struggling to be accepted.

The 39-year-old actor discussed his gay love scene with Stephen Moyer on E!’s Chelsea Handler Show.

We know Bono of U2 and his wife, Ali Hewson, are the creators of the ethical brand, EDUN. But now Ali Hewson is creating a new collection of clothing which has been made in collaboration with children from Kenya, at Liberty, a London department store. The t-shirt line is created to help raise funds to aid relief efforts in Africa. Ali Hewson tells the story of how she loves Africa and why she feels the need to help:

“I first traveled to Africa in 1985 with Bono and it was a journey that affected both of us deeply. We’ve been back many times since. We both want to show the beauty of the continent. Kibera, where the school is situated, is one of the largest slums in Africa and is home to more than 100,000 orphaned children. The people who run the school are very dedicated, and the children so enthusiastic, we felt compelled and inspired by their energy. With these Ts we are able to provide funding to for basic school supplies, hot lunches and healthcare.”

If you’re lucky enough to be in London, get the collection to help out today. But if you’re at work or at home right now, simply check Ali’s latest items from her other ethical line: EDUN.

“The Real World: Boston” Star Sean Duffy Running For Congress

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. A former Real World housemate is leaving his days as an MTV reality star in the dust and making a run for Washington. Sean Duffy — who appeared on MTV’s The Real World: Boston in 1997 — is running for Congress.

Take a look at his first campaign ad:

Duffy, now 38, has raised more than $600,000 to support his primary campaign for the Republican seat representing Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District. But first he’ll need to defend opponent Dan Mielke; he hopes to do that in the September Republican primary.

Nice to know that there’s life after reality TV. Just think, we could all be gleefully rallying behind a “Snooki Puss for Senate” campaign in about a decade. (Although we’ve probably got a better chance of seeing Hell freeze over.)

25 Questions You May Have About The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender is getting remarkably bad reviews. When films are received this poorly, those with a morbid sense of curiosity are ask, "Why all the vitriol?" It's kind of like those Internet videos of people viewing other Internet videos, such as "Two Girls, One Cup," with the attitude of, "Oh, how bad could this really be?" before they eventually realize their error, make a ghastly face, and leave the room. To spare you this pain, we will attempt to answer any question you may have—and many that you likely won’t—about The Last Airbender.

Brian Austin Green considering taking a role on Desperate Housewives

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Former Beverly Hills, 90210 charmer Brian Austin Green is considering an offer to move to Wisteria Lane to bring romance to Desperate Housewives. Sources confirm to me exclusively that he would play Keith, a single playboy who makes the women's jaws drop.

Brian (who just wed Megan Fox in real life) turns 37 this month, but doesn't look a day over 30, the age the character was originally envisioned by creator Marc Cherry. Gaby (Eva Longoria Parker) is known for falling for young studs on the Lane (let us not forget Jesse Metcalfe), and with Bree getting left by Orson, she could also be a contender for a little B.A.G. lovin'.

As for Mike and Susan, who have had to move off the Lane and into a dingy apartment, they'll have some new company to play with as well. Susan will befriend an old neighbor lady named Maxine — and that role has been offered to Lainie Kazan, 70, of My Big Fat Greek Wedding fame.

Beckham had brought eldest son Brooklyn, 11, along hoping to see history in the making.

Harry Potter Post

Butterbeer is a hit! 

Got butterbeer?
Harry Potter fans are all abuzz about butterbeer, and they've got the foamy mustaches to prove it.
The cold and creamy, frothy drink is the most popular food item at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, according to Universal spokesman Tom Schroder, with visitors lining up to try it.
"Then they would walk around and have this mustache on," said Sabrina Sampson, 11, of Richmond, Va., who described the drink as tasting "like cream soda. It was somewhat thick, and it was really sweet, and then it got salty as you swallowed it, like butterscotch."
Schroder said that about half the visitors to The Wizarding World sample butterbeer.
"There may be no bigger product launch smash this year than butterbeer," WalletPop.com said.

Jason Isaacs Says It's Not the End of Harry Potter

THE HARRY POTTER franchise may be nearing a conclusion on the big screen but Jason Isaacs says the magic is far from over.

Fans are gearing themselves up for Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in November and Part 2 in July 2011.

And while the new poster proclaims 'It All Ends Here', Isaacs - who plays Lucius Malfoy in the films - insists it's not really the end at all.
Isaacs confessed that wrapping up the Potter saga by filming Deathly Hallows wasn't at all a joyous, celebratory experience.

He tells us: "I was sad. I'm a bit of a sentimental buffoon, so I was already feeling tearful and nostalgic before they started months of shooting. You should really wait for the last day I think for that kind of behaviour."

Matthew Lewis Interview
An extra magical touch helped to unveil cancer-fighting equipment at a Leeds hospital.
The new £3.5m scanning suite was launched by Horsforth-born Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, at St James's Hospital.

The PET CT Centre, the largest of its kind in the north, houses a new research scanner and diagnostic imaging scanner to replace the mobile unit at Seacroft Hospital.

The scanner takes images of the structures of the body and can help diagnose cancer and even show whether a lump is cancerous.

Matthew said: "I don't think there is anyone in the country that knows anyone who hasn't been affected by cancer.

"This great city is on the front line of that war."

Matthew finished filming his last scenes in the final instalment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last week.

Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" Eyes Catch on as Trend?


Of all the strange outfits and accessories Lady Gaga wore in her “Bad Romance” video, who would have guessed that the look that would catch fire would be the huge anime-style eyes she flashed in the bathtub?

Lady Gaga’s wider-than-life eyes were most likely generated by a computer, but teenagers and young women nationwide have been copying them with special contact lenses imported from Asia. Known as circle lenses, these are colored contacts — sometimes in weird shades like violet and pink — that make the eyes appear larger because they cover not just the iris, as normal lenses do, but also part of the whites.

“I’ve noticed a lot of girls in my town have started to wear them a lot,” said Melody Vue, a 16-year-old in Morganton, N.C., who owns 22 pairs and wears them regularly. She said her friends tended to wear circle lenses for their Facebook photos.

These lenses might be just another beauty fad if not for the facts that they are contraband and that eye doctors express grave concern over them. It is illegal in the United States to sell any contact lenses — corrective or cosmetic — without a prescription, and no major maker of contact lenses in the United States currently sells circle lenses.

You can read the rest of the article at the source, but it's pretty tl;dr. The article cites this youtube video which shows how to achieve the big-eyed look. Skip to about 6:07 to see the circle lenses.

The exotic skins campaign officially launches on July 7th, but last night PETA released a sneak peek on E!'s The Daily 10. I'll post footage of the Jenna's E! interview very soon.

In the meantime, you can watch an exclusive interview where Jenna tells PETA, "I couldn't believe that that is what happens for a wallet or a purse," and talks about why she decided to get involved with the campaign...Collapse )

Judge lets Paris free - she's seen being served pizza & cold drinks in court house

American party girl Paris Hilton was arrested for possession of marijuana at a World Cup match Friday, but a South African judge tossed out the charges against her.

Hilton and her friend, former Playboy Playmate Jennifer Rovero, were arrested for carrying a joint at the Brazil-Netherlands quarter-final match in the southern city of Port Elizabeth.

They appeared in one of South Africa's special World Cup courts at 12:20 am Saturday (2220 GMT Friday), about six hours after the match, where Hilton was named "Accused No. 1" in the case.

"The charges against you, Accused No. 1, are dropped," magistrate Xolile Dlulisa said.

"Thank you, your honour," Hilton replied and left the court, after the three-minute hearing.

She arrived at the courthouse about 30 minutes earlier and appeared relaxed, smiling at court officials with her blonde hair pulled into two ponytails.

While she waited for the hearing, people with FIFA badges were seen bringing her seven pizzas, 12 cold drinks and six waters in an antechamber.

Her friend 31-year-old Rovero was found guilty of possession of marijuana and ordered to either spend 30 days in jail or pay a 1,000 rand (128 dollar, 100 euro) fine. She paid the fine.

Their lawyer Terry Price told AFP that the charges were dropped against Hilton, 29, because Rovero was actually holding the joint when they were arrested.

Her website says she was a Playboy Playmate of the month for July 1999, but is now producing photo shoots. She was described in court as a freelance photographer.

The judge, who was sweating and wiping his head during the hearing, seemed almost apologetic in handing down his verdict.

"It's very difficult for a human being to decide the fate of another human being. There's no magic formula," he said.

"It's unfortunate that while you're a visitor to this country you find yourself on the wrong side of the law."

South Africa set up the World Cup courts to quickly handle crimes dealing with foreigners during the tournament. The operate in normal courtrooms but keep staff working late into the night.


idk, Hilton probably paid off her friend to take the blame, and South Africa ... you're making an ass of yourself with this special treatment

Paparazzo who got punched by Gaga's bodyguard was asking for it

Boston Police were called to the Ritz-Carlton last night after a photographer allegedly got into a scuffle in the parking garage with one of Lady Gaga’s bodyguards.

New York photographer Carl Wu told police that he was punched by one of Gaga’s guards and thrown to the ground when he tried to get a photo of the “Alejandro” singer, who's in Boston for shows tonight and tomorrow at the TD Garden. Ritz security guards who witnessed the alleged skirmish told police that Gaga’s guard did push Wu to the ground, but only after the photographer was asked to leave, became confrontational with the bodyguards, and was escorted out of the parking area. According to the police report, the photographer ran down the garage ramp again, still trying to get photos.

Police would not release the names of the parties involved. Wu contacted the Globe shortly after the incident.

In an interview with the Globe, Wu said he suffered a cut lip and injuries to his hand during the alleged incident. Boston Police at the scene at 11 p.m. Wednesday noted in their report that they did not see any injuries and that Wu declined medical attention. No charges have been filed.

Boston Police spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll said that “in a scenario where it’s essentially a he said-he said, the two parties are advised to seek complaints in court if they feel that is necessary.” Driscoll said that even though there are more high-profile celebrities in Boston than ever, paparazzi-related incidents haven't been an issue.

“Typically, even though there has been an increase with movie companies coming to town, we have always experienced our local photographers to be very respectful,” Driscoll said.
Wu said he was at the Ritz on a tip from someone who knew the pop star would be staying there.

“Usually it doesn't happen like this,” Wu said, of his paparazzo experience. “Usually they'll say go away. You want to be polite. You want to give them space.”

Representatives for Lady Gaga declined to comment on the incident.


Mods, the story about him being punched was posted, but this one with the comments from the hotel staff and police was NOT.

Because a size 10 really counts a plus size

Crystal Renn, Still A Ten, Agent Confirms

There’s a bit of buzz building over “plus-size” model Crystal Renn’s latest photographs for non-profit Fashion for Passion. HuffPo said she looked “shockingly svelte” and The Frisky headlined their post about the photos, “Crystal Renn, Full-Figured No More?”

It’s true, in this Nicholas Routzen-shot campaign, Renn does appear to look thinner. So we called up her agent at Ford to get the scoop. Has Renn, an outspoken critic of the modeling industry’s size-0 standard, dropped weight?

“She is still a 39-40 hip (she fluctuates like any woman), and a solid size 10,” says Gary Dakin, Renn’s agent. He’s sure because she was measured for a fitting just a few days ago following a shoot for French Vogue. “She has no urge [to lose weight].”

Dakin implied that Renn may be more toned because she’s gotten into hiking after a recent trip to Patagonia. But the bottom line is that she’s healthy.

“She’s an amazing model,” says Dakin. “She can make herself look bigger or smaller depending on what the client wants.”

At the crux of this thing is the media’s love for a good “size story” (not that we’re exempt, of course).

Why do we care? Why can’t Crysal Renn just be a gorgeous model instead of a plus-size model, or a plus-size model who is (gasp) too thin and maybe not plus-size anymore?

Renn has a loud voice in the industry, and hopefully she’ll continue to use it to shake off the labels attached to her and other models who aren’t sample size. But until then, we buzz.

Transformers to take out Michigan Ave Bridge and Trump Tower?

Transformers fansite Collecticon has snagged a four-page document that was sent out to area merchants and residents which sheds a little more light on what Michael Bay has planned when he rolls into Chicago to shoot later this month. According to the dispatch, shooting for the sequel will center around the Michigan Avenue traffic circle just north of the bridge, near the Wrigley Building and Pioneer Court, effectively shutting down vehicular and pedestrian access to the area from July 16 through July 18. Furthermore, the scenes being shot will purportedly involve low flying helicopters as well as “gunfire, spark hits, explosions, fireballs and black smoke”—did you expect anything less?

The document also mentions that precision skydivers will be dropping into the city throughout July and goes on to list some additional filming locations; Hotel 71, 35 E Wacker, and—as per our request—Trump Tower. Will the evil Decepticons topple the real estate mogul’s towering edifice? Hell, we’ll settle for some major damage, just give us some giant-ass explosions to go with the wanton destruction.

Relatives of Harry Potter actress charged in attack ie. attempted honour killing

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
London, England (CNN) -- The father and brother of a Harry Potter actress will appear in court later this month in Manchester, England, on charges of threatening to kill the young star, prosecutors said Friday.

Abdul Azad, 54, and his son Ashraf, 28, are accused of attacking actress Afshan Azad earlier this month because of her relationship with a Hindu man, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said. The family is Muslim.

The father and brother appeared at Manchester Magistrate's Court on Wednesday and were released on conditional bail, said the spokesman, who could not be named in line with policy.

Bail conditions include a curfew and ban on traveling to London, the Manchester Evening News reported.

Afshan Azad, reported to be 22, has appeared in four Harry Potter films as Padma Patil, a classmate of the boy wizard and twin sister of Parvati Patil.

The alleged attack happened May 21. The father and brother are charged with threatening to kill the actress, and her brother is also charged with assault, the prosecutors' spokesman said.

Afshan Azad had never acted before she was cast in the movies, and admitted she only went to the auditions with her friends "for a bit of fun," the Manchester Evening News reported.

The sad tale of Ray Williams: 10-year NBA vet now homeless

Amid the ceaseless acquisitive frenzy that is NBA free agency, the Boston Globe dropped a harrowing profile of Ray Williams, a former captain of the New York Knicks and a reserve guard on the Boston Celtics' 1985 NBA Finals team who played for six teams during a 10-year NBA career from the late '70s through the mid-'80s. Williams' name might not ring out with today's fans, but he averaged 20 points per game in two different seasons (1979-80 and 1981-82), hung 52 on the Detroit Pistons as a member of the New Jersey Nets on April 17, 1982, and once drew (admittedly aspirational) comparisons to the great Walt Frazier.

Oscar-nominated Colombian actress Catalina Sandino talks her role in Eclipse.

Oscar-nominated Colombian actress Catalina Sandino Moreno features alongside Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart as a teenage vampire in the third installment of the smash-hit "Twilight" saga.

Speaking about her "small but important" role as a vampire named Maria, Sandino Moreno said, "Maria is trying to create a new army of 'Newborn' vampires who want to take over the world."

"It was cool I was offered [the role] because I have never done a bad role, I've always played very, very real people," said the actress, who made her name swallowing cocaine pellets in the hit film "Maria Full of Grace," about a Colombian teenage drug mule. The film earned her an Academy Award nomination, as well as winning an Independent Spirit Award for writer and director, Joshua Marston.

Sandino Moreno says she was more than happy, however, to enter into mainstream movie making, "Being a vampire is perfect, completely different."

The third movie in the Twilight series is directed by David Slade and includes a wealth of Latin American actors, including Alex Meraz as teenage werewolf Paul, and Christian Serratos as a friend of the story's main character, Bella (Kristin Stewart).

Sandino Moreno expressed delight at being part of a new generation of Latino film stars to feature in Hollywood blockbusters. "I feel fabulous ... It find it interesting that there is this presence, even with small roles. They can give another hue to films aside from what you always see."

Nicole Shizzleburger joins X Factor, in danger from Cheryl Cole

Simon Cowell has revealed that Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger will be the final guest judge to stand-in for Dannii Minogue on the X Factor.

According to The Sun, the When I Grow Up singer will join Cowell along with fellow judges Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole at the Manchester round of auditions.

However, the decision may not have gone down too well with Chezza after the Girls Aloud star previously slated Nicole, saying of the PCD star: "I don't think she stands out at all" and that she was 'no where near' as talented as Beyonce.

An X Factor insider has claimed that their past spat could be good for the show, stating: "We like to mix it up a bit on the panel as it can create some tension."

They added: "Hopefully there won't be any scratching or hair pulling by Cheryl and Nicole."

Scherzinger is also close friends with Cheryl's rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough after winning US TV show, Dancing With The Stars with him.

Essex girl Pixie Lott is the next guest judge to fill in for Dannii at tomorrow's auditions in Cardiff, following the footsteps of previous stand-in judges Geri Halliwell, Natalie Imbruglia and Katy Perry - who proved the most popular of the three.


Well the guest judges seem underwhelming (apart from Katy) I thought the X Factor could have done better... Who did you want as a judge, ONTD?

Eminem, 37, back in the charts with the album Recovery and the single Not Afraid, was so attached to 96-year-old Edna he even wrote songs in her honour.He often paid secret visits to her in his home town of St Joseph, Missouri.And in recent years he also paid for the former bookstore worker to have round-the-clock, expert care by a team of highly-paid nurses.

The rapper’s grandmother, Betty Kresin, says he began to cling on tighter to Edna at the same time as he pushed away his biological mum Debbie Nelson. And Kresin thinks Edna’s death in May is one reason the star – real name Marshall Mathers III – is looking so pale and gaunt. She said: “He came to see her as being like his real mother. He was totally devastated when Edna died.

Emily VanCamp talks about her 'Brothers & Sisters' exit

Someone better pour Nora Walker a tall glass of pinot, because her beleaguered clan is about to sustain another loss: As first reported by GiveMeMyRemote.com, Emily VanCamp is parting ways with Brothers & Sisters and her role of Rebecca. In the following exclusive interview, the Everwood grad sets the record straight about the circumstances surrounding her departure and teases the “traumatic” event that leads to Rebecca’s goodbye.

Is it true that you’re leaving?
EMILY VANCAMP: It is true. I’m going to go back for a couple of episodes, which I’m really excited about. I really feel like Rebecca has run her course. And the deal I was offered this year was for two more years, and I just felt like since renegotiations were happening that maybe it would be the right time to move on. I’ve been doing this for a very long time, and other opportunities have presented themselves that I haven’t been able to do. I’ve had such an amazing four years on the show and I felt like maybe it was time. It was a big risk, but I’m really excited about it.

Isn’t a six- or seven-year contract standard practice when you join a show?
It is. I think [ABC] decided that they wanted to renegotiate with me and, I think, different cast members. All I know is what was happening with me. They [wanted to] renegotiate for the next couple of years and the idea of doing two more years was slightly daunting —not because I haven’t appreciated every single moment on that show. I’ve had such a brilliant time, and I had the opportunity to work with some of the best — I’m so grateful for that. But with family dramas, it’s hard to keep those stories alive. I just felt like it was time to move on.

Miley Cyrus Is Not The Teen We Should Be Worrying About

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Miley Cyrus can't catch a break. It seems like the world refuses to let her grow up. Everyone expects her to stay Hannah Montana forever, but it's time to face the facts -- it's not going to happen. She can't be tamed, and the more she's criticized, the more likely it becomes that she'll lash out with more risque outfits and girl-on-girl kissing. Come on, she's a 17-year-old teenage girl. They don't want to be told what they can and can't do. What's really bizarre is why the world is so focused on her when there are other teen stars acting the same way. Honestly, ever since 'Gossip Girl' star Taylor Momsen started wearing excessive dark eye makeup, donning her now trademark thigh-high garters and declared her hatred for wearing pants, why have we accepted that it's okay for this 16-year-old to be a role model ... when Cyrus is criticized for taking a wrong breath. Both underage girls rose to fame as cute actresses and then decided to hit the mainstream music scene. For the record, Momsen is younger than Cyrus. Gasp! So what's with the double standard?

Allan Hyde Said Godric Has to Ooze a Calm Confidence

How do you immitate someone who is 2000 years old? You have to make it believable and emanate an aura of confidence and authority. That’s what Allan Hyde told True-Blood.org. It’s what he tried to do in his portrayal of Godric, True Blood’s oldest vampire from Season 2.
“I looked at how the elderly react and interact with other people – they ooze a calm confidence without forcing anything on anyone – they will set an example and expect it to be followed.”
