Sharlto Copley Post

Sharlto Copley is House Hunting



Sharlto Copley is "saving up" to buy a house.

The 'A-Team' actor - who plays 'Howling Mad' Murdock in the big screen adaptation of the cult 80s TV show - insists that just because he is in the public eye, it doesn't mean he is a millionaire.

Interview: A-Team star Sharlto Copley



The night before my interview with Sharlto Copley, he is photographed alongside co-star Bradley Cooper, arriving at the US premiere of The A-Team on Sunset Boulevard in a tank, wearing a helmet and saluting to the huge crowd that have gathered outside the theatre.

As Hollywood entrances go, you can't get much bigger but in person, Sharlto Copley, the South African-born actor who plays crazy helicopter pilot Howlin 'Mad' Murdock, is gracious, polite and as is often the way with big screen actors, slender, lithe and glowing with health.

Stieg Larsson becomes first author to sell 1m ebooks on Amazon


The late Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson has beaten Stephenie Meyer and James Patterson to become the first author to sell more than one million ebooks on Amazon.

The online retailer said yesterday that Larsson, author of the Millennium trilogy, had become the first member of its new "Kindle Million Club", for authors whose work has sold over a million copies in Amazon's Kindle store in the US. The crime novelist is likely to be joined by thriller writer Patterson – Amazon said last week that it had sold over 860,000 of his ebooks – while Twilight scribe Meyer, Sookie Stackhouse creator Charlaine Harris and queen of romantic suspense Nora Roberts have each sold more than 500,000 Kindle books in the US.

Ne-yo mulls over Michael Jackson tracks


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ne-Yo is torn over what to do with a treasure trove of music he wrote especially for Michael Jackson before the megastar's untimely death. The R&B singer is sitting on dozens of songs he penned for Jackson as the late king of pop was preparing to kickstart his career for the final time.

Ne-Yo is one of America's most bankable songwriters, backing up smash singles for Beyonce and Rihanna with a trail of his own dollar stacking hits. But the star steadfastly refuses to sell off the music he wrote for Jackson and is reluctant to release the songs under his own name out of respect for his idol.

"The songs are sitting in archives but I really don't know what to do with them," Ne-Yo said in Sydney. "I can't sell them on to someone else as that would be disrespectful but I also think it might be disrespectful to bring them out myself.

"So I don't know, I'll sit on them and wait. It's definitely quality music but they were songs written absolutely for Michael Jackson."

Paris Hilton working on new album inspired by Kylie Minogue



Paris Hilton is trying to follow in the footsteps of her musical idol Kylie Minogue, and is releasing a new album later this year. The heiress is finishing off the album at the moment and has taken inspiration from the Australian pop princess.

‘My record is just in production now. I recently finished recording it. It’s very like dance, club music.

‘I really have always loved Kylie Minogue – She’s, like, one of my favourite artists. I’ve just been really inspired by her. I just wanted my music to kind of... emulate her’, the blonde told Heat magazine.

She even went as far to say she ‘kind of loves’ Kylie, so when her album comes out in a few months we can expect something similar to Aphrodite no doubt.

Despite being a massive Kylie fan, Miss Hilton admitted she does like other music too, including The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and U2.

An interview with the wonderful and talented Benedict Cumberbatch


The splendidly named 33-year-old actor Benedict Cumberbatch looks absolutely dreadful. He is known to have "interesting" features – sloe-eyed and snub-nosed, with a sort of startled-meerkat-meets-a-Magimix look about him (lmao wat?)– but today he is also pasty-faced, with bottle auburn hair and a nasty, shiny cream shirt. His suit looks one size too small for him. It's a wet February morning on the Cardiff set of Sherlock, the BBC's modern adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic. Cumberbatch, who plays Holmes, twists and shifts about in his chair. He sits on his hands. He does impromptu imitations and funny voices. His eyes jag from side to side. Mark Gatiss, who co-wrote the screenplay, says, "Oh, he's always like that. You should hear him in the car on the way back to the hotel in the evening. Does impressions of everyone. Hilarious."

His face used to put me off at first, but after Sherlock? He is perfection and I will never think a bad word of him ever again. Bolded the interesting parts, the interview is a bit weird, but he is awesome and that is all that matters.

Parents Angry With Protesters Outside Bieber Concert

Justin Bieber left many young girls breathless before and during his sold-out show at the Sprint Center Wednesday, but there was also another group outside the venue that riled parents up.

On Grand Boulevard outside Sprint Center, some parents and members of the Westboro Baptist Church clashed over the controversial church's protest of the show.

"You're a shame that you think you can walk around this god-forsaken country and treat people that way," one mother screamed at the protesters.

The Westboro Baptist Church has been known more for protesting military funerals, but took aim at the 16-year-old teen heartthrob and received plenty of push back from the parents bringing their children to the concert.

"He has not done anything wrong," Kansas City parent Amber Heavner said. "He's here to entertain the public, I guess just like she's here to entertain the public. He has not done anything wrong. These are children ... these are children ... my children can read, my children can see, my children can see that she's got signs that say 'God hates America!'"

Kansas City, Kan., parent Meyers said she didn't need her kids seeing the signs held up by the protesters.

"This is the last thing my kids need to see," Meyers said. "God doesn't hate anyone. It's insane. It makes me really mad."

It wasn't just mothers weighing in on the their kids being exposed to the demonstration.

"I was a little perturbed, and I just tried to focus on at the concert and not look over there," Kansas City parent Scott Magdziak said. "I'll explain to them what's right and try to not look over there."

The demonstration only lasted for about 45 minutes and before much of the crowd filed into the show.

‘Main Street Electrical Parade’ Extended at Walt Disney World


Just as scores of you had hoped – we’re leaving the lights on and extending Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” at Walt Disney World. By popular demand, the parade at Magic Kingdom Park will continue an open-ended run when “Summer Nightastic!” ends on August 14.
It’s probably no surprise to hear that the parade has been one of our highest rated entertainment experiences at Magic Kingdom Park since returning in early June. It’s been an “overwhelming success,” according to Park Vice President Phil Holmes. And now, you’ll be able to continue cheering and humming “Baroque Hoedown.”
Of course, new elements of Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” will continue during the encore phase of the run.

Those include:
Tinker Bell leads the eye-filling procession, waving from the basket of a balloon floating gracefully above a magical garden shimmering in fairy light.
Pinocchio and the boys from the classic film’s Pleasure Island sequence join the parade, and Snow White joins the Seven Dwarfs on a diamond mine float.
There are new lighting effects, and the parade’s highly recognizable musical theme is brightened by new technology.

You have to go through a lot of different styles and shapes to see what looks right on you.”

Queen of Pop Madonna planning surprise new tour?



Madonna planning 'hip-hop' tour

Madonna is road-testing dancers for her most surprising tour ever, according to reports.

The 'Hung Up' singer, who is gearing up for a six-month jaunt next autumn, was said to be auditioning dancers at a nightclub in London's Mayfair, The Mirror reports.

A source said: "Madonna is in peak condition so the gruelling aspect of life on the road isn't a problem. She road-tested dancers at her favorite London club, and had her lover Jesus Luz give his opinion.

"It's going to be her biggest, most unexpected tour to date. She is going back to her New York City roots, with a street/hip-hop feel, and wants to make it a physical, dance-heavy set of gigs."

The tour - part of Madonna's new deal with Live Nation - is expected to net the star £100 million.

Valderrama Still Regrets Candid Stern Radio Chat

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Actor Wilmer Valderrama still regrets candid comments he made about ex-girlfriends Mandy Moore and Lindsay Lohan during a radio chat with shock jock Howard Stern.

The former That 70's Show star stunned fans and his former flames in 2006 when he opened up about taking Moore's virginity and busty Lohan's body waxing regime on Stern's risque show.

He told Stern, "The sex with Mandy was good, but it wasn't like warm apple pie," and referred to ex Ashlee Simpson as a "screamer" in bed. He told the DJ Lohan was a "big fan of waxing".

Moore responded to his on-air comments, admitting she was upset by what Valderrama had said and now, four years later, the star is still living with the shame.

He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I definitely learned a lot from this industry and, in the last 10 years, about the media. I learned that no matter who you really truly are there will be instances where you put your guard down and you just have to be aware of that.

"That stuff that at one point was the topic and the flavour of the month was one of those things where I understood that I had a choice... I could just not make."

TCA rumors for Britney, plus new CD news



Usually I take the VMA rumors with a grain of salt’s salt because they’re always fucking wrong. Wiki is a major bitch, toying with my heart every year, claiming Britney Spears will attend, only to laugh at me later and yell Just Kidding!

Maybe this year will be different. The Latino division of E! online has said Britney Spears will be there along with Katy Perry and Xtina.

From their twitter 2 hours ago they tweeted;

Los Jonas Brothers, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera y Katy Perry en los Teen Choice Awards. Lunes 9 de agosto LIVE en E!

In other words, tune into E live for Britney Spears and other non important people on August 9th.

To make matters worse for my tiny valves, I got an email from a person claiming to be an intern at MTV and they said they personally saw interoffice memos discussing Britney Spears among other PERFORMERS at this years’ TCA.

I said “wait a fuckin minute”. Performers or Guest? Big difference. Bitch/dick had the nerve not to reply to me.




Nicole Morier talked about Britney recently and that she is working on music for Britney’s 7th album. Who isnt?! We’ve heard of about 30 different song writers and producers who are allegedly connected with Britney’s album.

Nicole however says she has already heard one of the songs that Britney completed- written by “someone else”, and it was amazing. If you are not familiar with Nicole, she co wrote several songs for Britney including Mmm Papi & Rock Me In. She’s the lead singer for Electrocute.

From the sound of all these latest writers and their direction- it sure sounds like Britney is going very electro with this album. Sky Ferreira, Nicole Morier, Rusko. OH EM GEEE!

Definitely a euro pop direction and you just know Britney will rock that sound.

Jimmy Fallon accused of sexual discrimination


Late-night funny man Jimmy Fallon likely isn’t chortling over this one. The former SNL cast member has been slapped with a sexual discrimination complaint by a man.

According to The Star-Ledger, former stage manager Paul Tarascio filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the New York State Division of Human Rights, because he was demoted and then fired because he was a man.

“Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman,” Tarascio’s lawyer, Dominick Bratti, told the media. The lawsuit also outlines that Fallon only wanted female technicians to place microphones on him.

Tarascio previously worked for Conan O’Brien until the flame-haired comedian headed to Los Angeles and there were no complaints from anyone then. He accuses Fallon’s show of fabricating complaints about his work in order to remove him from his job, which was then filled by a woman.

Neither NBC nor Fallon have a comment. As for what his client wants, Bratti says he’s hoping for his old job back (not likely, at this point) or “restitution.”

Leonardo DiCaprio still wishes he hadn’t turn down a role in Boogie Nights.



The actor was director Paul Thomas Anderson’s first choice to play iconic porn star Dirk Diggler in the 1997 drama but he decided to make James Cameron’s epic Titanic instead.

The role went to Mark Wahlberg making him an overnight star and although Titanic went on to win 11 Oscars and become the highest-grossing film of all time, Leonardo wishes he had been able to take on both characters.

“Probably the only film I was offered and turned down but now wish I had made is Boogie Nights,” Leonardo told Australian radio programme the Kyle and Jackie O show. “The first time I met Paul Anderson to discuss that role I hadn’t seen any of his previous work. Now I’ve seen a lot of it and I really liked that film.”

Leona Lewis Cancels Tour Amid Breakup Reports



A newly single Leona Lewis has reportedly called off her upcoming plans to tour in Australia, Asia, and Europe as she is "heartbroken" over her breakup with longtime beau Lou Al-Chamma.

An insider told a British tabloid that the "Bleeding Love" singer will instead head into the studio to put her anguish into a new album.

She was recently spotted heading into the studio with hit-maker Dallas Austin. The two are reportedly collaborating on Lewis' third studio album, a re-release of "Echo," which is set for a Christmas release.

"Leona's heart just wasn't in the tour towards the end of the U.K. leg," the source told the Sunday Mirror. "She was upset, teary and heartbroken over her split with Lou. She'd been with him for 10 years."

Back in June, "The X-Factor" winner and her childhood sweetheart Al-Chamma decided to part ways. The singer's busy schedule and British tour were rumored to be key factors behind split.

Lewis was set to make her U.S. tour debut this summer as an opening act for Christina Aguilera. But, those plans were also scrapped as Aguilera announced in May that she was postponing her 20-date "Bionic" tour to an unspecified time in 2011.

Taylor Swift's New Single More "Mature," Cover

Reps for Taylor Swift are swarming the country to play the new Taylor Swift song, “Mine,” to radio stations. KILT was one of the first stations on the list and got to hear the song just moments ago. Radio won’t get a copy of the song until early August, but you can read our exclusive review after the jump.

Taylor Swift’s new song, “Mine,” will be the first release from her upcoming new CD, Speak Now, which hits stores on 10/25.

“Mine” is an uptempo song that’s unmistakably Taylor. It’s a boy/girl song, sort of like “Love Story,” but a much more realistic look at a relationship. It shows Taylor’s growth and maturity over the 2 years since she released Fearless, but still maintains Taylor’s ability to tell a story with an instantly memorable hook.

In the song, Taylor is a girl who always avoided love and then finds herself in a great relationship. Here’s a line from the chorus:

You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter / You are the best thing that’s ever been mine

“Mine” has a big chorus, and is very singable – like all great Taylor Swift songs. Keep it on KILT to hear it first and get all the details of the new CD and Taylor’s upcoming tour.

Fake Controversy

Obama Flip-Flops: Does He Know Who Snooki Is, Or Not?



Asked for his opinion on Snooki (who voted for John McCain) the president claimed ignorance. But two months ago he was dropped Snooki's name in a White House Press Correspondents Dinner punchline about a health care provision named in honor of the hit MTV show. "It [the provision] reads, 'The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.'"

As we see it, there are three explanations for Snooki-gate:

* 1. He forgot Snooki. (Which is odd, because she's the kind of person who tends to get seared into your mind forever.)
* 2. He is as ashamed of partaking in television's guiltiest pleasure as you are. His ignorance on The View was feigned.
* 3. Obama's famously hip speechwriters got ahead of him and dropped a cultural reference he didn't understand for the sake of Beltway chuckles. He recited the joke without getting it, and promptly forgot its context as soon as it was over.

So which is it, Obama? Do you know Snooki, or don't you? America demands an answer
(no we don't. shut up, you basic bitch).

The Housewife that everyone loves to hate hasn’t confirmed that they are a couple, but quickly took to her Twitter and wrote “bless my gf Lori Michaels.”

Anne Rice Quits Christianity

By Advocate.com Editors

The best-selling author of Interview With a Vampire and mother to novelist Christopher Rice posted on her Facebook page that she’s left the religion because she refuses to be “antigay,” “antifeminist,” and “anti-Democrat.”

Rice wrote, “It’s simply impossible for me to 'belong' to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I’ve tried. I’ve failed. I’m an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.”

“In the name of Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian.”

In 2004, Rice announced in Newsweek that she from that point forward, she would “write only for the Lord.” The author continued to be a vocal supporter of gay rights while touting her Christian faith.

Her son, Christopher, is gay, has frequently contributed to The Advocate, and is the author of five best-selling novels.

The D.C. snipers' case shocked the country and sent our nation's capitol into a panicked frenzy in October 2002.

William Shatner is one of the coolest people living and if you don't believe me, read his autobiography, Up Till Now. My friends and I liked pulling out his version of Common People at the bar's jukebox but after reading his book, he's become one of my heroes. Plus I think it's cool he's branching out as he gets older and doing shows like Aftermath and Shatner's Raw Nerve.

Also, I remember the DC snipers and how scary it was considering I lived in MD. Did anyone live closer when it was going on?

Hot Bitches in Control trained with Navy SEALS for Sucker Punch

Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone are some of the actresses that seem least likely to be the next big action stars, but based on how well-received the panel and footage from their upcoming "Sucker Punch" was on Saturday at Comic-Con, it seems like that is exactly what they are set up to be.




When the four starlets of Zack Snyder's latest project came to chat with MTV at SDCC, they said that they didn't take the violence of the film lightly.

"We probably at the beginning all felt like, oh my God, we don't look like fighters," Browning said. "We're kind of all little girls. We trained our asses off -- we worked really hard."

She added that they were trained by Navy SEALS for three months, with six hour a day work out session. "And we got strong," Browning said.

In fact, they were all working out so much that they started having cravings to exercise when they didn't have any scheduled. "If we didn't get to work out one day we'd be like, shaking," Browning said.

"If they weren't fighting [with] guns, they had withdrawal," Chung added. "Jenna was always talking about it... she was so obsessed."

Tom Hardy at the Glorious Goodwood Festival (July 29th)

 

Inception breakout star Tom Hardy wraps his arm around his fiancee, British actress Charlotte Riley, while watching the horse races during Ladies Day at the Glorious Goodwood Festival on Thursday (July 29) in Chichester, England.

The 32-year-old British actor, who has a two-year-old son with a former girlfriend, recently admitted that he’s had sexual relations with other men. He shared, “As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for ****’s sake. ‘I’ve played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality, but now that I’m in my thirties, it doesn’t do it for me. I’m done experimenting but there’s plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, that I need in my life. A lot of gay men get my thing for shoes. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine.”

Tom added in another interview, “A lot of people say I seem masculine, but I don’t feel it. I feel intrinsically feminine. I’d love to be one of the boys but I always felt a bit on the outside. Maybe my masculine qualities come from overcompensating because I’m not one of the boys.”

'Jersey Shore' Returns: More Parties, More Clubs, More GTL In Miami

It has been six months since we last checked in with our favorite housemates in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, but tonight (Thursday, July 29), the wait is finally over. "Jersey Shore," the hit MTV show that turned cast members like Snooki and the Situation into household names since its premiere late last year, is back with brand new episodes. This time around, the cast gets transplanted from the house on the boardwalk to the sunny shores of Miami for some good, old-fashioned fun in the sun.

There haven't been new episodes of the show in a while, though the cast members have been involved in plenty of other media projects since then. The Situation has a deal for a workout video and a book, while several of the cast members helped co-host the pre-show at the MTV Movie Awards. They partied to mark the release of the show's official soundtrack, and they also recently showed up at the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell. They have become fixtures on talk shows and on red carpets and are now so much a part of the pop culture fabric that even President Barack Obama referenced them recently.

TIME WARP: Panic at the Disco Talk New Album



According to a recent interview with lead singer Brendon Urie, Panic At The Disco have finished recording their new album and hope to have it out in early 2011.

We've had a collection of many songs for about a year and a half, but have actually been recording our third album for only six months. We feel it sounds much different than both our previous records. I think that's always been a goal of our band; challenging ourselves to do something we haven't before. We've recorded all the music and are preparing for mixing. We hope to see it released early next year.

BREAKING NEWS: Olivia Palermo Wants To Be A Designer



We have such a love/hate relationship with Olivia Palermo. We hate her patronizing attitude and her inability to move her jaw. But we love her ridiculously shiny and never frizzy hair. We hate the fact that despite her complete and utter incompetency as an “Accessories Editor” for Elle, she manages to avoid being fired on a daily basis. But we kind of love the fact that she’s willing to look like a total jerk on national television. And while we sort of hate that she has what appears to be a never-ending supply of really expensive clothing, we have to admit: we love her style. So it’s with mixed emotions that we’re reporting Palermo’s plans to design her very own clothing line.


Clearly we’re not surprised — what sort of MTV reality star would she be if she didn’t have delusions of designer grandeur? — but at the same time, we thought Palermo had forgone fashionable aspirations for thespian ones. Hasn’t she always said she wanted to be an actress? Turns out, she still wants to be an actress, she just also wants to model, and design clothing. So what are her so-called qualifications?


“Recently, I’ve been taking dresses in my closet, vintage or from a previous season, and re-draping them, adding my own personal touch with a brooch or a belt. Reinventing them.”


What we wouldn’t give to put Palermo in front of Elle’s Fashion News Director Anne Slowey — she who made poor Whitney Port cry after more or less ripping her clothing line to shreds. Because as much as we love Whitney, it was, in a word, awesome.

Essence Responds To White Fashion Director Controversy

[In response to this post]

On Tuesday, news broke that Essence, the fashion glossy aimed at black women, had hired a new fashion director. But there was one problem — she was white. The outrage was pretty immediate, with former Essence staffers tweeting, Facebooking, and blogging their “anger” and confusion. Our own Justin Fenner wrote a thoughtful and nuanced piece on the controversy — which we’d recommend reading if you want a catch-up. And now Essence’s editor in chief, Angela Burt-Murray has responded.


In a long and insightful essay for The Grio, Burt-Murray explained why, exactly, she hired Ellianna Placas:


I first got to know and came to respect Ellianna when she came to work with us nearly six months ago. We were conducting a search for a new director when she was hired to run the department on a freelance basis. I got to see firsthand her creativity, her vision, the positive reader response to her work, and her enthusiasm and respect for the audience and our brand. As such, I thought she’d make an excellent addition to our team. And I still do. This decision in no way diminishes my commitment to black women, our issues, our fights.


Burt-Murray’s explanation confirms our research: that Placas had in fact been working — albeit in a free-lance capacity — for Essence since February. Burt-Murray also notes that while she shares critics’ concerns that the fashion industry is “overwhelmingly white,” she’s surprised at how much outrage the hiring sparked — especially in comparison to some of the other race-based issues Essence has covered. She writes:


But interestingly enough, the things I think should most upset people and inspire boycotts and Facebook protests, often seem to go relatively unnoticed. Like when Essence conducted a three-part education series this year on the plight of black children falling through the cracks in under-performing schools. Crickets. When we reported on the increase in sex trafficking of young black girls in urban communities? Silence. When our writers investigated the inequities in the health care services black women receive? Deadly silence. When our editors highlighted data from the Closing the Gap Initiative report “Lifting as We Climb: Women of Color, Wealth and America’s Future” that showed that the median net worth of single black women was $5? There went those darn crickets again. When we run pieces on how unemployment is devastating black men? Nada. When we run story after story on how HIV is the leading cause of death for black women age 18-34? Zilch. The things that really are the end of our world apparently aren’t.


We’re curious to see what some of Burt-Murray’s critics have to say to her op-ed, but we think one of her statements says it best:


Our commitment to black women remains unchanged as we continue to stay laser-focused on those principles–no matter who works with us.

UK Film Council axed


Yeeeeeah spending cuts!


The UK Film Council became one of the highest profile quangos to be axed by the coalition government after culture secretary Jeremy Hunt unexpectedly announced its abolition.

John Woodward, chief executive of the UK Film Council, briefed an unprepared staff about the decision at the council's central London headquarters this morning. No one had seen it coming. He said the decision had been taken with "no notice and no consultation".

Collapse )

Collapse )

For the tl;dr translation: Britain is in the economic shitter and the government has committed to extensive spending cuts. The UK Film Council uses money raised from national lottery sales to fund British films - not just smaller indie ones but also commercially successful, big-budget ones like Slumdog Millionaire. Now it's been cut without any warning and there's still no word on where all the money will go.

It was announced earlier this week but ONTD hasn't reported on it - pretty important IMO, since the Film Council bankrolled a lot of the UK film industy, and ONTD has reported on more industry behind-the-scenes stuff (like the writers' strike) before.

Aaron Carter had Dream Street, the boyband Jesse was in when he was younger, open his Winter Party tour in 2002. I'm assuming he thinks Jesse should be thankful for that but let's be honest, I don't think he can attribute a tour that happened years before he got big in the mainstream media to that tour. If anything he could be partially blamed for the group's breakup since his mom was apparently a bit of an instigator between one of the members and the other guys. Oh, and there was a rumor that his mom also forced Aaron to break up with a girl who was on the tour because she wasn't famous enough...

It was one of the biggest storms I’ve ever been in but it was almost kind of fun in a way. We were just standing outside, [but] I felt like we had just jumped in the pool.”

EXCLUSIVE: Amy Fisher To Star In Four Porn Movies

Amy Fisher has signed a deal to star in four porn movies, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

The Long Island Lolita is taking her shot at hardcore fame, and will produce and star for Dreamzone Entertainment. Her first film is tentatively titled, The Making of Amy Fisher: Porn Star.

Fisher, 35 and a mom of three, is pulling the trigger on a professional porn career after her amateur tape was released in 2007. That featured Amy with her husband and sold more than 200,000 copies.


She released a pay-per-view porn film previously and has her own site where she “limits” herself to working with other women, so her husband won’t get jealous.

Fisher is not holding back now. RadarOnline.com learned she starts production on her first film in August and it will be released late this year. Three other films will be released next year.

Dreamzone lists Fisher as 5-foot-3 and 105 pounds with (their description, not ours) “incredible D-cup size breasts.”

And there’ll be no Buttafuoco in Amy’s new career—she’s starring with the top talent of the porn biz, people with last names like Dabone and Gunn.

Fisher made headlines in 1992 when she had an affair with Joey Buttafuoco while she was underage, and then shot his wife Mary Jo in the face. Fisher spent seven years in prison.

“Our society loves sex,” Fisher says about her new career. “It feels so good and we should enjoy it. Sex is beautiful, powerful, and simply put, no one has the right to tell me what I can or can not do with my own private parts. This time, I get to make the choices on what kind of movies I want to make, and I am excited to work with Dreamzone to make my dreams a reality.”

RadarOnline.com obtained the treatment for her first film and the “plot” goes like this: Amy moves to LA to “explore the possibilities” of becoming a porn star. Amy meets a guy, has sex with him. Amy meets a girl, has sex with her. Amy meets two other people, has sex with them. Amy goes back to Long Island.

The new collection is inspired by Ernest Hemingway's memoirs A Moveable Feast, and aims to mix "European sophistication with timeless American style". Naomi's campaign was shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh.

In the sensual images, she models everything from a bold leopard-print dress to classic black pieces, knitwear and coats.

Lady Gaga’s mystique lies in art of the sample


In less than two years, Lady Gaga has combined an intense desire to be famous with a strong work ethic, a boundary-pushing fashion sense and middle-of-the road dance music to build a multimillion-dollar empire that landed her just behind Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce Knowles on Forbes magazine’s celebrity-power list.

With six No. 1 radio hits in the past year, more Facebook followers than President Obama, an Andy Warhol-inspired creative team and marketing that has put her image everywhere, Lady Gaga — also known as Stefani Germanotta — has become the world’s biggest pop star at age 24.

To many fans, Lady Gaga, who is touring North America this summer, is unlike any artist they’ve ever seen.

But those who have been around the block a few times understand that, as impressive as her accomplishments are, Lady Gaga is a savvy sampler of elements that have worked for Madonna, Prince, Elton John, John Lennon, Britney Spears and other predecessors.

Justin Timberlake's William Rast line to launch at Target



NEW YORK (AP) — William Rast, the fashion line by Justin Timberlake and his childhood friend Trace Ayala, has a new partner: Target.
 

The retailer announced Thursday that a William Rast collection, including denim, outerwear and sportswear for men and women, would launch in December and be available for a month.
 

Target has had a steady stream of limited-edition partnerships with top-level designers, including Zac Posen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rodarte and Proenza Schouler, giving the retailer a certain prestige among the fashion crowd and bringing designer labels down to a more affordable price point.
 

The typical William Rast look is casual, with an emphasis on jeans and leather jackets. The fall runway collection, presented earlier this year at New York Fashion Week, was dubbed New America and inspired by road trips between the Mississippi River and the West Coast, Timberlake said.

The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question. You don’t ask White people what they buy their kids. And they buy ‘em Porsches and convertible Bentleys and it ain’t no question. It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way that people still look at you. And I’m not saying that consciously he’s a racist. But he probably don’t even realize that he would not ask Steve Jobs that. He would be like Steve Jobs has that money and that’s the gift his kid is supposed to get.

SAVE THE SEX PANTHER (he's endangered)

This nice fellow wrote an article about how amazing this guy is:



I agree with this Elbert guy, so I am reposting his article here so more people can read it. There are amazing clips inside for the teal deer crowd.

Save Paul Rudd
Hollywood is squandering one of its greatest comedic resources.
By Elbert Ventura

Dinner for Schmucks, which opens this Friday, is uncharted territory for Paul Rudd. Fifteen years after his breakthrough role in Clueless, Rudd finally gets to headline (along with Steve Carell) a big-budget summer comedy. It's the next logical step up in Rudd's gradual ascension. In 2008, he reached Hollywood leading-man status, though in more modest studio movies: the quickly forgotten Over Her Dead Body, with Eva Longoria, and the so-so Role Models. [ia on the former, but I take issue with Elbert's opinion on the latter. I thought Role Models was great.] In 2009 came I Love You, Man, another tired entry in the bromantic canon. With its midsummer slot and relentless publicity campaign, Dinner for Schmucks is poised to be his biggest opener yet. And later this year comes a call-up to prestige-picture territory, with a starring role in James L. Brooks' new film, Everything You've Got, due in the middle of Oscar season.

Rudd's rise is well-deserved and, for those who've been following his career, hardly unexpected. For the last decade, he has toiled in the background as a supporting character in big hits and popped up in unseen indie comedies (if you haven't yet, see The Chateau for a peerless Rudd performance), always distinguishing himself as an adroit and funny presence. There have also been cameos in cult TV series, hilarious talk show appearances, and random Internet doodles. It all adds up a body of work that is one of the funniest—and most underrated—in recent American comedy.

EXCLUSIVE: THE ACTOR SAYS GOODBYE TO HARRY AND HELLO TO HAMMER




Daniel Radcliffe’s
next magic trick will be his hardest — can he successfully disappear into a new starring film role after a decade as Harry Potter? On Monday, just three days removed from his 21st birthday, the actor seemed eager for the challenge even though his thoughts kept drifting back to Hogwarts.

“Working is how I will best get through a very weird time,” Radcliffe said. “I know it’s the most constructive thing I can do because otherwise I’d be moping around and being a bit like, ‘Oh, I miss everyone ... ’ So I'm quite pleased to go on to the next thing and the next challenge.”

Kourtney OK

Jealous haters continue trying to break up Scott and Kourtney.

Earlier this week, Kourtney Kardashian told People magazine that Scott Disick is a great father and "obviously not a monster."

But the latest In Touch Weekly cover story aims to disagree with this statement and shed light on just how shady little Mason Dash's daddy really is - and this goes far beyond a supposed penchant for sangria.

With Kourtney and Scott having moved to The Hamptons, a source says Kourtney (and reality show viewers, naturally) may soon see what kind of a monster this man truly can be.

Asked about Disick's past in the area, especially the New York pals with which he associated, an insider revealed:

“He was worse than anyone knows. Scott and all his close friends were in this fake ‘gang’ called the Scummers. They would do all these really awful things together.

"When he was hooking up with a girl in bed, his friends would be in the closet, videotaping what was going on. Sometimes, his friends would jump out of the closet. He’d try to let them join in.”

In other words: Scott Disick is a second coming of Ray J? Haven't the Kardashians made it clear they welcome this kind of behavior? They do have their entire empire to thank for it, after all.

Lady Gaga denies X-rated photos, remains celibate and flawless



A nude photograph of what is allegedly Lady Gaga engaging in sexual intercourse with a male partner has been circulating online but RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively it is not the Bad Romance singer.

"This is NOT Lady Gaga," RadarOnline.com was told on Thursday afternoon by Amanda Silverman, the singer's publicist.

Lady Gaga has been known to wear some pretty wacky outfits, even prancing around in her underwear and bra at times, but her camp swears the nude photo is not her.

Celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Chelsea Handler and Carmen Electra have all fallen privy to a sex tape or sex photo being leaked to the public, but it looks as if Lady Gaga is safe for now.

Gaga would never do anything so stupid, not surprised that this is false! Does anybody know what picture is being referred to, by the way? I don't think I've seen it...

EDIT: Picture posted in comments! NSFW!

More Game of Thrones casting news: Charles Dance IS Tywin Lannister!



Charles Dance has been cast as nobleman Tywin Lannister in HBO's upcoming epic "Game of Thrones."

A wealthy lord and head of one of the most powerful clans in the realm, Tywin is one of the most memorable characters in the series of George R.R. Martin novels that begins with "Game of Thrones." Tywin is father of the despised Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and the calculating twins Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey).

"Thrones," which arrives in 2011, is one of the most hotly anticipated shows on HBO's roster; its cast includes Headey, Sean Bean, Coster-Waldau, Michelle Fairley, Dinklage, Jason Momoa, Emilia Clarke, Aiden Gillen and Mark Addy. The drama recently began production in Northern Ireland.

In his long career, Dance has starred in everything from "Plenty" to "Labyrinth" and in lavish miniseries such as "Bleak House" and "Jewel in the Crown." I can't speak for the rest of the fans of Martin's novels, but when his name surfaced as one of the casting rumors for the role of Tywin, he seemed perfect for the part, which requires charisma, a steely resolve and a commanding presence.

can we have a game of thrones tag please? :D

Taylor Momsen Coming back to GOSSIP GIRL TO SAVE RATINGS

With six weeks to go before the Sept. 13 season premiere of Gossip Girl, producers are beginning to get chatty about the new season and the much-anticipated Paris episodes. In addition to debuting the first footage from the two-episode arc for TV critics Thursday, producers also confirmed-- parlez vous spoilers? -- that, duh, Chuck Bass is totally alive (but he'll be walking with a cane!). They also revealed that scenes were shot at Musee D'Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, Gare du Nord and Avenue Montaigne.

Some other tidbits and teases from executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz:

-- Taylor Momsen's Jenny Humphrey will definitely return next fall. "We wanna keep it up in the air where her character will go," Savage says, once again refusing to spill much. "Obviously she left in a dramatic fashion at end of last season. We’re excited about being able to create some tension about her character. I don’t want to say exactly which episode (she returns), but it’ll be in first half of season."


-- A giant female music personality is close to signing on for a guest role. "She'll not only preform an original song but will also act with the characters," Savage teases. "She's both new and iconic." (Madonna, perhaps?) Loo
