Wisteria Lane has a new resident!
Vanessa Williams is moving in on Desperate Housewives and in an exclusive photo, she’s seen on the set with show creator Marc Cherry.
“It’s another challenge,” Williams, who played the delightfully wicked Wilhelmina on Ugly Betty, told PEOPLE recently. “It’s another opportunity for me to put on the clothing of somebody new and Marc Cherry and the team has guaranteed it’s a character worth watching so I’m excited to bring it to life.”
As for her first day on the job, Williams reported, “I arrived and did my arrival and I hope it’s funny and I hope I fit in with the girls because they have embraced me with open arms and [the show] is a well oiled machine. They are in their seventh season and it’s a wonderful group of gals and everyone was so nice to me.”
Hopefully, her character won’t return the favor!

Everything You Think You Know About Mike Tyson Is Wrong - Details Magazine Interview
Details: Twenty years ago, you were one of the most famous men on the planet. Is there a big plan for Act 2?
Mike Tyson: The first stage of my life was just a whole bunch of selfishness. Just a whole bunch of gifts to myself and people who didn't necessarily deserve it. Now I'm 44, and I realize that my whole life is just a fucking waste. "Greatest man on the planet"? I wasn't half the man I thought I was. So if there's a big plan now, it's just to give—it's selflessness, caring for the people who deserve it. Because I think I'm a pig. I have this uncanny ability to look at myself in the mirror and say, "This is a pig. You are a fucking piece of shit."
Details: Sounds painful.
Mike Tyson: No, not at all. Objectively, I'm a pig. That's why it's very difficult for me when people are offering me all that adulation and love. I just feel dirty. These people want to hug me, they want to touch me, and I'm feeling like, "Get your fucking hands off me." I feel that energy of theirs, and it's just filth and murder. It's not that they're bad people necessarily; it's just that they did something bad, and you can feel it on them. I have to go and wash up before I touch my own kids. And after I lost my 4-year-old daughter? All these people reached out and I realized: I just want to be of service to people. I need to help. I need to have something, finally, that I can offer people in this world.
Details: Do you think that might be helping those who have gone through a similar tragedy of losing a child?
Mike Tyson: I have such mixed feelings about that. Sometimes it feels like I've lost faith, and I get that incredibly insignificant feeling of thinking that other people should be dead and she should be the one still here. And then I see that I just gotta boot up and suit up and come to work and make the situation better somehow. Try to be a man—not the man, just a fucking man—and show up. I knew I had to show up for my daughter. And it's so ironic: I arranged this lavish funeral, and the doctor bills were astronomical. It came to, what, $200,000 all told? And I don't have a nickel to my name. It was all paid for by donations, and then I'm thinking, I'm not worthy of all that.

Joe Jonas hopes to take his music-to-acting transition one step further by playing... a murderer? The 20-year-old tells TVGuide.com he's always been intrigued by CSI-type shows and would love to go much darker than his fans expect of him. Jonas tells us which show he'd love to appear on and a few surprises about this summer's Jonas Brothers world tour. In the meantime, catch Jonas on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland and in the Disney Channel original movie Camp Rock 2, which debuts in September.
TVGuide.com: Now that you've hit primetime, would you like to do more?
Joe Jonas: I've never done it before, other than the Disney channel stuff, so to do something like [Hot in Cleveland] was really interesting to me.
TVGuide.com: Do you have a dream show you'd like to be on?
Jonas: I would say Lost, but it's over. I think CSI is cool — to be a murderer, or to die. I've always been intrigued by those shows.
TVGuide.com: Would you want to do darker roles?
Jonas: As an actor, it's always fun to push the limits to what you can do. I've never gone out of the box with it, so that would be a lot of fun for me.
TVGuide.com: You have Camp Rock 2 coming up. Any chance we can get a Camp Rock 3 on the big screen?
Jonas: Hey, let's do it! [Camp Rock 2] has an ending where it can continue.
TVGuide.com: And you're all headed on a world tour.
Jonas: Yes, we head out on tour and the co-stars are coming along with us. We're making the movie even bigger than it is [by] bringing it on stage, having that music on stage, with all the different actors and musicians.
TVGuide.com: Any surprises in store?
Jonas: There will definitely be surprises with the set [and] new music possibly. I think there will be quite a few new tracks out there for people to hear.
TVGuide.com: Any thoughts on doing a solo album?
Jonas: I've been writing and recording a lot of music on my own, so we'll see where it goes. I'm looking forward to the future.

Beyonce dropping a new single (sort of)
Beyonce is still releasing singles from her multi platinum selling album I Am…Sasha Fierce.
The CD’s bonus track Why Don’t You Love Me (released as a video exclusively on May 4th) is now going to get promotion and physical release.
The single will be released in the UK on August 30. It will be the ninth single to be released from Beyonce’s third album.
It’s official! Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Firefly) has been selected to join the elite superhero film, The Avengers, as none other than the mighty Ant-Man.
Ant-Man shall shrink you and then, when you are sleeping, will command bugs to crawl all over you so that you get extremely itchy. How you ask? By communicating with them through his ultimate bug telepathy. Get ready because here comes the Ant-Man.
The news about Nathan Fillion came from the Joss Whedon panel at Comic Con earlier today. Thanks to Bleeding Cool for the tip.
At this point in time we now have Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Evans as Captain America, and probably Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. And remember, the film is being directed by Joss Whedon, that’s why he got to make the announcement. Now we just have to wait to confirm a few more cast members to have a solid hero lineup.
Get ready for some crazy bug attacks all up in your face!
Kele has emerged fighting fit with his incredible, critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Boxer’, a joyous mixture of bouncing electronic dancefloor beats and songwriting that’s both celebratory and sensitively confessional. It has completely turned ghettoised indie-boy pre-conceptions of who Kele is and what he represents on their head.
Second single ‘Everything You Wanted’ mixes Kele’s more romantic, introspective side with pulsating electro beats, a haunting metronomic piano and an soaring chorus which combine to deliver a heavyweight emotional punch, landing in a wonderfully unique place somewhere between and Orbital and Arcade Fire. The polar opposite of ‘Tenderoni’ in tempo but still as joyously affecting and undeniably Kele.
Look out for remixes from Fred Falke, RAC, Disco of Doom, DJ Mujava and Punks Jump Up.
The song has grown on me a little...

ALSO, I THINK IT'S PRETTY MUCH CONFIRMED THAT HE'S GOING TO BE ON HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR'S NEW ALBUM. I'LL MISS ANTONY'S VOCALS BUT KELE IS A WONDERFUL ADDITION :D

Mike O'Malley received an Emmy nomination for his role as Burt, a dad struggling to understand his gay son, in the hit show "Glee."
Mike O’Malley is eyeing an appetizing spread of lobster and spicy tuna at Katsuya, the Japanese restaurant as famous for its sleek Philippe Starck design as its entrees, when a young girl suddenly appears at his table.
“I wouldn’t normally do this,’’ says the girl’s father, “but Kendall is such a huge fan of yours.’’
Smiling, O’Malley puts down his chopsticks and greets his 12-year-old admirer. She compliments the actor’s performance on the Fox hit “Glee’’ and then walks away staring at his autograph. A decade ago, such a scene was almost unimaginable. After critics savaged “The Mike O’Malley Show,’’ dismissing the balding, slightly doughy star as a generic comic undeserving of his own sitcom, O’Malley wondered if he’d have to skulk home to New Hampshire, his career in Hollywood over before it began. How times have changed. O’Malley, 43, has just been nominated for an Emmy for “Glee,’’ the hit comedy that’s one of two primetime shows he appears on. O’Malley also has a growing film career that includes a role — written specially for him — in next month’s “Eat Pray Love,’’ the big-budget drama starring Julia Roberts.
“Talent trumps all in this business,’’ says “Private Practice’’ star Kate Walsh, a friend of O’Malley’s. “And Mike, as people are discovering, is very talented.’’

Atmosphere announces "To All My Friends Tour"
Atmosphere, the most prolific group in independent rap, has announced plans to tour the US with Rhymesayers label-mates Blueprint, Grieves & Budo, and DJ Rare Groove. The tour, which stretches 23 performances across the month of September into the beginning of October, will stoke anticipation for Blueprint’s upcoming release while introducing audiences to recent signees Grieves & Budo, who are also slated to release an album in the near future.
Since it’s inception in 1995, Rhymesayers Entertainment has fostered one of the most inventive and organic musical communities in the country. Atmosphere formed in 1995 when a mutual friend introduced Sean Daley, who MCs as Slug, to producer Ant. The two set to work and have since built an inland empire, selling hundreds of thousands of records independently and forging a new model for the post-millennial music business. Relentless tour schedules across five continents have gained them notoriety in industry circles and have proven to be their most effective promotional asset.
An Atmosphere show is a passionate, whole-hearted immersion into hip-hop idealism that’s complimented by a full live band. Slug is known to deliver lyrics with unbridled energy over deafening drums, alternately emoting over lost love and calling out those that would detract him for doing so. Blueprint is a welcome companion for this tour, armed with a bevy of new material that’s certain to expose audiences to an unfamiliar facet of his character. Grieves & Budo, with the last three years spent on the road and their recent appearances at SXSW, Soundset, and Bamboozle, round out the bill.

Eva Longoria Parker praises 'Desperate Housewives' guest star Vanessa Williams
Looks like Vanessa Williams' first week in Wisteria Lane has been met with glowing reviews, according to co-star Eva Longoria Parker, who recently spoke to OnTheRedCarpet.com about her first week filming Desperate Housewives' seventh season with the former Ugly Betty actress.
"I had my first scene with Vanessa Williams on Friday. Aside from being stunning - I can't stop staring at her face - she's absolutely wonderful, and sweet, and just a really kind human being," the Desperate Housewives star said.
About ten years ago or so I saw Cyndi Lauper live when she opened for Tina Turner. She was very pregnant at the time and sang every one of her hits except the one her fans most wanted to hear, ”Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” The crowd was waiting for it, ready to explode and dance and sing along.
Not only did Lauper not sing it, she got snotty with the audience when they called out for it. At the end of her set she said, “Nope, not gonna sing it,” and walked off.
For a decade I’ve waited to get that off my chest.
Taylor Momsen, eyes coated in thick rings of her trademark black eyeshadow, writhes and contorts on a table in a scene reminiscent of the Last Supper. She throws food, smashes glasses, and crawls off the table wearing little more than a leotard and a pair of clear heels.
The scene is from the just-released music video for a song called "Miss Nothing," but it has people saying a lot about the 16-year-old singer.
Momsen (most well known for playing Jenny Humphrey on TV's "Gossip Girl") takes obvious pleasure in shocking people with an aggressively sexual persona. But as the frontwoman for the Pretty Reckless, playing today at the West Palm Beach stop of the Vans Warped Tour punk rock festival, she insists she's just telling stories.
Showtime finally released the official trailer/teaser/sneak peek for the new season of Dexter. I think another video was posted before, but it was a fan video of the screen and some lady asked the person to turn it off before the teaser was over, so here you go:

'Black Swan': Ballet thriller
By Susan Wloszczyna
The Venice International Film Festival apparently can't get enough of Darren Aronofsky, even if he has switched his focus from muscle-bound men to dainty dancers.
The director took home a Golden Lion, the event's top prize, for The Wrestler in 2008. Now he has been given the honor of opening this year's 11-day event on Sept. 1 with Black Swan, a ballet-themed thriller due in late fall. "The cast and crew of Black Swan are both excited and humbled by the selection committee's invitation," Aronofsky said in a press announcement. "It is an honor to walk the great red carpet on the Lido, and we are excited to premiere our film to the wonderful audiences in Venice."
The dark tale with psychological twists stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a technically brilliant ballerina whose life takes some strange turns after being picked as the lead in a New York City production of Swan Lake. Pressures mount as her overbearing mother (Barbara Hershey) pushes her to succeed and her manipulative dance master (Vincent Cassel) commands her to be more seductive and loose in her performance.

Christina Milian to The-Dream -- You Screwed Me!
Christina Milian wants a judge a throw out the divorce papers filed by her baby daddy The-Dream -- claiming that he not only lied about the status of their relationship ... but he also cheated on her.
Milian is pissed over The-Dream's claim that they were legally separated when he filed the divorce docs back in February ... just nine days before she gave birth to their daughter.
In her legal response, filed last week in Georgia, Milian claims the marriage wasn't really kaput when he filed the divorce docs -- and subsequently had "marital relations on numerous occasions."
But Milian also claims that if the court does grant the divorce -- it shouldn't be based on The-Dream's claim that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" -- but rather because the The-Dream was cheating on her.
But it gets worse ...
In the docs, Milian admits that she signed a settlement agreement with The-Dream in which both parties waved any alimony or ownership right's to the other person's property.
But Milian claims she only signed the docs because The-Dream brought them to her bedside when she was 9-months pregnant ... when she was in no condition to sign such important papers.

After eight months of swordfighting on the set of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," star Andy Whitfield had a real battle to fight, with Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
So of course, when Zap2it caught up with Whitfield at Comic-Con in San Diego, our first question was about how he's feeling now that he's cancer-free.
"Amazing," he says immediately. "I feel better than ever, like, seriously, I feel like I'm 10 years younger. I had a good rest."
Whitfield is back in training for Season 2 of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," which will begin shooting three months from now. Since he only had one month to prepare for Season 1, he's not concerned, despite the fact that he does 90% of his own stunts.

Peaches, dressed in a pretty animal-print dress covered in large red bows, teamed her outfit with red sunglasses and ballet flats.
The party-loving couple have appeared at several events during the four-day convention in San Diego, which is the largest comic book and arts convention in the world and attracted 120,000 fans.
Earlier this week Peaches, 21, took the opportunity to show off two new tattoos, including an upside-down crucifix on her back and the letters FML inked onto the inside of her middle finger - believed to be an abbreviation for the expression, F**k My Life.
The four-day convention is serious work for actors and directors, as it provides one of the biggest platforms for them to promote upcoming films.

On the heels of their first single 'Jardin du Luxembourg,' the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger -- Sean Lennon's newest project with partner Charlotte Kemp Muhl -- have now dropped details on their first album. Due Oct. 26 and dubbed 'Acoustic Sessions,' the nine tracks stemmed from material Lennon and Kemp Muhl wrote in the beginning stages of their band but only revisited recently.
"We started making our electric record but all of our friends thought we should put a record out representing how we started as an acoustic duo," Lennon tells Spinner. "We interrupted our regular, electric recording and did this acoustic record that wasn't really appropriate for an electric setting. We really wanted people to hear the words to our songs and we really could only do that if we got rid of all the other instruments."
While the first taste of the band came in the form of a '60s throwback pop sound on 'Jardin du Luxembourg,' Lennon says that it's supposed to convey to listeners the idea of hearing them alone, in a living room. "It's almost rough sounding, but hopefully in a charming way," he says. "It's mostly acoustic guitar, some piano, some vibraphone."
Lennon and Kemp Muhl have extended their romantic involvement into the studio and live setting, a process that some would find a bit hairy, but not for these two. "Our work makes our relationship stronger and our relationship makes our work stronger. We produce together and we perform together."
"It's hard to keep up when he plays every instrument, equally well," Kemp Muhl adds. "We're both like competitive siblings in a way. For the acoustic sessions, he'll do the basic track live -- the guitars and the vocals. Then I'll come and flesh it out with the piano and that's how we start the basic tracking."
Before the album release, Lennon and Kemp Muhl are uncaging the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger this summer with a string of east coast dates opening for Beth Orton, starting on Aug. 13 at Philadelphia's World Café.

Sex mad stunner copies romping antics of her hero
By Jane Atkinson, 18/07/2010
JUST like the characters in her favourite TV show, posh Christina Saunders knows good sex. And so she should, after seducing 1,000 MEN.
The university-educated brunette longed to be as confident in bed as Sex And The City maneater Samantha.
So she set herself a 10-year challenge - to get a thousand notches on her bedpost.
She said: "Sam went from one man to the next and was proud of it. I wanted to be confident like her. I got hooked on the buzz of one-night-stands."
She slept with at least one stranger a week, travelled the world hunting for men to bed, and took part in threesomes.
But now Christina, 30, admits: "All I want is a man to love me - not one who just wants me for sex."

Just a week after showing off her lavish unaffordable mansion in InTouch Weekly, Teresa Giudice’s luxurious home items have now been officially listed on an auction website to be auctioned off on August 22nd.
The website, A.J.Willner Auctions, specializes in auctioning off home items of the rich and morally bankrupt aka Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, who can been seen bragging about their lavish lifestyle on the show, filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 mil in debt back in October 2009.
And not only does the site list Teresa home address, and a time for the auction, 12:00pm for those interested in stopping by, it also posts the photos of items set for auction from Teresa’s home. Oddly enough, a lot of the items pictured, including Teresa’s stainless steel gas range, flat screen TV, and crest leather & fabric sofas, were all featured in her InTouch magazine home spread.
- Schaefer & Sons Grand Piano
- Wolf 48″ Stainless Steel Gas Range
- 1080 Pure 42″ LCD Television

- Round Pine Kitchen Table & 8 Upholstered Tudor Style Chairs
- Panasonic Viera Oversized LCD Television
- Dark Finish King Size Bedroom Set
- Love Seat, Upholstered Arm Chairs & Area Rug
- Connelly Antique Style Pool Table
- Faux Marble Chess Set
Yes, even the bed Teresa sleeps on will be auctioned off. Not sure if it gets any more humiliating than that. Unfortunately for the Giudices, their problems have only just began.

One of the producers on the Joaquin Phoenix documentary Casey Affleck directed last year is suing him for $2 million claiming sexual harassment, E!Online reports. Amanda White filed her lawsuit early Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
White alleges that in addition to enduring "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace" throughout the making of 'I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix,' she also wasn't paid for her work as a producer.
"Affleck repeatedly referred to women as 'cows'; he discussed his sexual exploits and those of other celebrities that he allegedly witnessed; and asked [White], after learning her age, 'Isn't it about time you get pregnant?'" the suit states.
The producer also claims that while the group was filming in Costa Rica, she wasn't able to go to her room one night because Affleck and Phoenix were in it with two women.
Affleck's lawyer, Michael J. Plonsker, quickly shot back at the allegations, calling them "preposterous and without merit."
In a statement to PopEater and other outlets, Plonsker explains their side of the story: "Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken."

From l to r, SRK's daughter Suhana, wife Gauri, son Aryan, SRK, and Shakira, who is not a member of SRK's family.
According to reports, Shah Rukh has been approached to play dad to his son in the film centred around adolescence issues while his son is to play the lead.
Even though Aryan technically debuted in a short opening sequence in the 2001 Karan Johar film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, but this film could mark his full-fledged acting debut.
The story is about the romantic world of a teenager and deals with the differences in perceptions between the father and the son, a source told Mumbai-based DNA newspaper.
Reportedly, a ‘prominent’ producer, who is backing the script, thought Shah Rukh and his son would suit the characters very well and add to the movie’s value.
Even though there has been no response from the King Khan yet, but the producer is confident that Shah Rukh will definitely like the script.
While the actor is busy with the shooting of his upcoming film Ra.One, his staff could neither confirm nor deny the news. But one aide did tell the newspaper that it was unlikely that he will say yes.
Shah Rukh is known to be a protective father, and he is not known to take decisions about his kids hastily and also to keep them away from the media glare.
But with Gauri reportedly opening up to endorsing products and shooting commercials recently, who knows, the Khan family might be loosening up a bit after all.

Actress Billie Piper has hit back at people who slammed her for smoking next to her son's face.
A picture recently surfaced of Billie puffing away in front of her toddler, Winston, with clouds of smoke going into his face.
But the 27-year-old has insisted the snap is misleading.
Billie thinks that the camera angle made her look closer to her son than she actually was.
The picture was taken in London while the Secret Diary of a Call Girl star was out with her husband Laurence Fox and Winston.
British newspaper The Sun reported that a rep for Piper said: "Billie is a responsible parent who values her child's health above all else.
"Though a smoker, she is careful to only do so outside and with consideration to those around her."
The spokesperson added: "Due to the angle from which it is taken, the picture is misleading.
"It does not give a true sense of perspective in relation to the proximity of her son."

Rosamund and Gillian do quite a bit of theatre work in London, so this type of role is...different.
For centuries dogs and cats have inhabited our homes and captivated our hearts. Sleeping at the foot of our beds, awaiting our arrival home from work and comforting us when we are feeling down, these lovable creatures have become a part of our families and, in some cases, our best friends. Yet when we discuss our furry companions the conversation often turns to the age-old question: Are you a dog person or a cat person? And why? While we all have our own thoughts and opinions about what the correct answer should be, no one has been able to solve the mystery, until now!
On Saturday, July 24, at 8 PM (ET/PT), Animal Planet will take on the task of settling this grudge match 5,000 years in the making with the new special DOGS VS. CATS. With seven rounds of varying events used to settle the score, DOGS VS. CATS will get to the root of pet lovers' obsessions and preferences for each species by posing poignant questions to pet owners about each species and by matching up actual cats and dogs in head-to-head competitions to gauge friendship, athleticism, cuteness, history, cleanliness, intelligence and cost. The first species to capture four rounds will be crowned the superior pet.

EDIT: The dogs won the special, but the cats won the online poll.
They're really cute together.

Ashley Cole plans to put 'for sale' sign on the past with Cheryl

Meanwhile, Cheryl, 27, is using her time off work constructively as she recovers from a bout of malaria. A pal says the singer plans to front a charity with her Girls Aloud bandmate and close friend Kimberley Walsh to raise awareness about the disease.
‘Cheryl wants to raise money for mosquito nets and better medicines across the worst-affected regions of Africa,’ says the friend.
‘After hitting such a terrible physical low, she has come to realise just how awful the disease is and how lucky she has been to receive the best medical care.'
The teen star — who recently celebrated her 18th birthday — says she used to ask her mom to take her to the movies so she could watch the Titanic actor in action.
“Yes! I got it,” Gomez said of DiCaprio’s new movie Inception.
“I did have to ask my mum a couple of times, ‘What’s going on now? What’s he doing? Where is he going?’ He’s really handsome and talented.”
Selena recently revealed she wants to have a career like The Time Traveler’s Wife star Rachel McAdams.
“I would love to model my career after hers,” she said.
“She’s brilliant. She chooses smart roles, reinvents herself for every role. I admire that and hope I’m able to do that myself in my career.”
The Deathly Hallows panel took place earlier today at Comic-Con 2010 and included a great new clip from the two-part finale. Check out the description in our blog below (we will have video as soon as it is available).
The National Museum of Dance will honor Michael Jackson with a permanent garden when he is inducted into the Hall of Fame next month.
Officials at the Saratoga Springs, N.Y., institution told TMZ they have agreed to make room for the garden after a Jackson fan group sent word that a huge delivery of flowers would arrive for his induction day.
The size of the garden will be determined by how much cash the fan group can raise, and the group will be responsible for paying for the garden's upkeep, TMZ said.
The King thanks you for your time and love<3
The singing sensation, 20, picked British-born actor Toby Hemingway, 27, to walk her down the aisle in the video for her soon-to-be-released song, "Mine," in which she plays a bride.
"I saw Feast of Love and just loved that movie and thought Toby was so great that I thought it would be perfect to put him in the video," Swift tells PEOPLE about the Los Angeles-based actor.
But it was the unexpected appearance of her lucky number that sealed the deal.
I was doing some more research and watched another movie he was in called The Covenant,” she says. ""I've got this crazy 13 lucky thing, and he walks on screen for the first time wearing a sweatshirt with a 13 on it! That was the deciding factor. It wasn't really up to me, it was about the number."
The costars seem to have clicked in person, too – they were recently seen hanging out together, when Swift was in L.A. to record with an orchestra for her next album, Speak Now, due Oct. 25.
But getting married on film "was a little strange," Swift says. "I get to wear big dresses and wear white all the time on the carpet, but there's nothing quite like actually pretending you're getting married."
If the message in her song "Mine" – out Aug. 16 – is any indication, it’ll probably be a long time before she's ready for the real thing. "It's a song that is about my tendency to run from love – it's been a recent tendency," she told viewers during a live Web chat Tuesday.
"Every really direct example of love that I've had in front of me has ended in goodbye, has ended in breakups," she said. "So I've developed a pattern of sort of running away when it comes time to fall in love. This song is sort of about finding the exception to that."
The whole 13-thing gets kind of old after a while for me.
Who doesn't love to see a geeky celebrity in their awkward teenage stage? Before they were stars, some of our favorite hip-hop, R&B and sports stars had homerooms, crappy cafeteria food and lunch breaks just like us. Braces and braids and acne galore. Hop in the DeLorean and check out these sometimes embarrassing shots of the stars (Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Beyoncé, Tyra Banks, etc.) looking their best and worst in their elementary and high school yearbook photos.

Who do you think had the best picture? I miss my Black celebrities tag.
Bragman, who has helped a number of clients "come out" including Chaz Bono and Meredith Baxter, will focus the show on just that. Naturally, the title of the show as of press time is Coming Out, and will feature well known figures coming out of the closet.
"I'm the guy people come to when they want to come out, it's something I've done for twenty years," Bragman told PRNewser today. So how did the idea come about?Bragman said that he was approached by some producers who told him the topic could make for an interesting show. He teamed up with producers JUMA Entertainment and A&E bought the show as a one time special, which is scheduled to air sometime in the fourth quarter of 2010.
"We're in casting right now," said Bragman, "looking for the best stories." When asked if he would feature his clients on the show, Bragman left that open as a possibility, but also said that it is not a requirement for appearing on the show.
"I've been approached multiple times to do reality shows," he said. "And what I don't want to be is that screaming publicist who is yelling because he doesn't like Paris Hilton's table maid at an event...you know how they like to portray publicists in Hollywood."
"This is the first chance I had to do something that I found empowering and that could change the world a little."
What kind of celebs d'you think would be willing to appear on this show?!
As footage rolled of the Avengers' logo, a big "A," we heard Samuel L. Jackson's voice: "Super heroes came together," he bellowed, "the day the Avengers were formed."
Then they came out one by one.
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Chris Evans as Captain America. Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Mark Ruffallo as The Hulk. Joss Whedon as The Director.
Downey calls this film more ambitious than Inception.
Joss Whedon had tears in his eyes. He said, "I had a dream all my life and it wasn't this good." And 6500 hundred people in Hall H screamed from the very depths of their multiverse-loving souls.
The Avengers had assembled. And just like that they were gone. After seeing the footage of Captain America and Thor they had a job to do: to prepare to shoot the greatest comic book movie in the history of time.
There's some footage of the appearance here!

Entertainer Janelle Monae performed at the Hugo Boss “Beat The Heat” rooftop party in NYC on Thursday night.
The singer is currently starring in a new Coca-Cola commercial and will be joining the band Montreal for a North American tour starting in September.
since then, the petition has gotten over 11,000 signatures and created a lot of buzz. lupe has mentioned it a few times on his twitter as well as B.o.B. and Janelle Monae.
Lu also mentions it in his new freestyle, BMF [Building Minds Fast], which trended on twitter today:
@4:10: "Look at my fanbase / Oh yes / Fuck what Pro say / Look at this protest / Where they do that at? / Who they do that for?"
note: when he says "fuck what pro say", he's referring to Prolyfthegift's rants on twitter about him. Pro worked with Lupe on his first album, "Food & Liquor"
So he's writing, producing and maybe directing the movie.
"SAN DIEGO -- One of the biggest surprises at Comic-Con thus far came on Thursday during the Disney panel, when Guillermo del Toro came out and announced that he would be writing, producing and maybe directing a remake of "The Haunted Mansion."
Del Toro joked that they weren't returning Eddie Murphy's calls for this, referencing Murphy's 2003 comedy. He has been a lifelong fan of the Disneyland ride, and was collecting memorabilia from the ride before he even thought about making a film.

ONTD creepy post!! share your ghost stories, ONTD!
Test pilot Hal Jordan received a super-powered magic ring from outer space, and attendees at Comic Con got their first glimpse of footage from the Green Lantern movie. Here are 10 awesome Lantern details we discovered.
1) The movie will look awesome. At least judging by the first footage that was shown at the panel. It was pretty short, but then again, the film's just started filming. We start out with a vision of green light, and a voiceover of Sinestro saying "Greetings, inhabitants of Sector 2814," and telling us the green light will glow if we will it. We have to be tested before we can be recruited, and this involves seeing if we can control the green energy. And then the light explodes, and we see Ryan Reynolds trying to control it - and getting his ass kicked a whole bunch of different ways. Reynolds recites the famous Green Lantern oath. We glimpse Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, and Tomar Re, an alien Green Lantern, as well as Hector Hammond turning into a monster. Reynolds learns how to create a giant green fist and uses it to clobber three thugs at once. And we see a sneak peek of Oa, which is a rocky landscape full of volcanos, all bathed in green energy. Reynolds has none of his old snarky tone from previous roles, and seems much more earnest about his superheroic duties.
2) We haven't seen Green Lantern's real, finished costume yet. The shot on the cover of Entertainment Weekly was just "a work in progress," and we haven't seen the whole thing in either case. Director Martin Campbell seemed aware of the fan backlash against the costume image, and insisted it'll look much cooler in the finished version. The black and green are a very strong motif in the costume, and they're an extension of the ring. It's like a layer of musculature, or a second skin. And this version of GL won't have any white gloves, which will be handy if he tries to eat buffalo wings after fighting Legion. (Oh, and Geoff Johns talked about trying to make a GL film 10 years ago, and having studio execs ask if Green Lantern can fight evil without the ring, because they didn't like the ring..)
3) Hector Hammond will be a freak indeed. Peter Sarsgaard says his version of the mega-cephalic supervillain will have a Size 60 hat size, and he also says Hector Hammond is "the kid that licked the battery."
4) The awesomest Green Lantern will be in the film. We will get some Kilowog, although whether he'll look like the concept art we posted a while back, we're not sure.
5) Sinestro will be a hands-on mentor. As in the comics, Sinestro (Mark Strong), the Green Lantern who later becomes a major villain, will be training Hal Jordan to be a Green Lantern - and we'll get to see Sinestro kick some ass along the way.

Even though Marc Jacobs & his then boyfriend, Lorenzo Martone, were planning on getting married & had a rumoured commitment ceremony a few months ago, it seems they have broken up. Lorenzo confirmed on his twitter account yesterday:
I'm crying rn tbh. so hot, so young, so sexy.
The star of MTV's upcoming Teen Wolf series, a darker take on the Michael J. Fox movie, will be Tyler Posey. And while it is tempting to make a joke about the lengths people will go to cash in on the Twilight trend, please don't do it around him, as the T-word may still be a sore subject: Posey was the second choice for Jacob, and lost out to Taylor Lautner. (In fact, when the Twilight book was first optioned, Stephenie Meyer even blogged that Posey would be great for the role.) At the Comic-Con panel for Teen Wolf, the actor, despite losing out on a role that would have made him a very rich 18-year-old — "You're waiting for your $8 million paycheck?" joked creator/exec producer Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds) — said that he was "very, very happy to be here." Only in his trailer, as he prepares to put on a big furry mask, does the weeping presumably begin.
Teen Wolf is getting a remake?
In the midst of a relaxing weekend getaway, Britney Spears and boyfriend Jason Trawick were spotted out in Santa Barbara, California on Saturday (July 24).
With Jason's parents also along for the outing, the "Gimme More" singer donned quite the interesting ensemble as she chomped on candy gummies while leaving a Michaels Arts And Crafts store.
Aside from her Santa Barbara doings, Miss Spears has recently been reported to be backing old pal Mel Gibson as he's immersed in controversy surrounding abuse charges from his ex girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva
Insiders tell that Brit Brit has been lending emotional support over the phone with the actor, who previously was by her side during her past head-shaving/hospitalization meltdown. –source

Ladies and gentlemen, your first assault of Comic-Con 2010: A dude in a Harry Potter shirt reportedly stabbed another attendee in the face with a pen for refusing to switch seats, delaying tonight's much-anticipated Marvel panel. Police removed the alleged assailant from Comic-Con's 6,000-capacity Hall H in handcuffs; the victim was wheeled out on a stretcher.
And minutes later, comedian Harrison Ford surprised the crowd by appearing onstage flanked by fake police and wearing handcuffs. Too soon?
