Levi Johnston Wants to Beat Justin Bieber


Look out, Justin Bieber; you have some stiff competition breathing down your neck. Well, some kind of competition, anyway.

Levi Johnston, former Playgirl model and recent ex-fiancé of Bristol Palin, was on hand at this year's Teen Choice Awards to promote his upcoming video, "After Love," with "Step It Up" chanteuse Brittani Senser. And to hear Johnston tell it, the musical duo has a certain 16-year-old YouTube sensation in their sights:

My job is just to show up, make this video happen, and see if we can beat Bieber's numbers here.


No doubt Bieber Nation is trembling in its boots right now. Do you think Levi and Brittani stand a chance of toppling the Biebs from his lofty pedestal? Share your thoughts in the comments section. And after that, make sure to crack open The Holy Bieble and check out Celebuzz's Teen Choice Awards page.




Instead of beating Justin you should beat your dick on Sean Cody.

Rod Stewart to be a father again at 65

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Congrats are in order for Rod Stewart: The rock legend and father of six – who said last fall that he was hoping for one more child – and his wife, Penny Lancaster, are expecting a baby.

"We were thrilled and delighted to be able to tell Alastair that he was going to be the big brother to a little baby, expected just before Mummy's 40th birthday," the couple said.

Stewart, 65, has five other children from previous relationships, in addition to a 4-year-old son, Alastair, with Lancaster, 39.

No word on whether the upcoming arrival is a girl or a boy.

Stewart and Lancaster wed in Portofino, Italy, in 2007.

Gorgeous Cutie Joins New Shonda Rhimes Medical Drama "Off The Map"

Zach Gilford is traveling a long way from Dillon, Texas for his next TV gig.


The ex-Friday Night Lights QB is joining ABC’s Shonda Rhimes-produced medical drama Off the Map as a series regular.

Gilford will play a plastic surgeon in the South America-set drama, which is slated to premiere at midseason.

“The character is still being written, but I’ve heard him described as kind of an all-American frat boy,” says Gilford. “[Map creator Jenna Bans] told me she loves FNL, but wants to distance me from that role as much as possible. [Something] that excited me.”

This isn’t Gilford’s first time appearing on a Rhimes series. The actor guest-starred on Grey’s Anatomy back in season 5. “I didn’t have any direct contact with Shonda, but I have watched Grey’s since the beginning and I’ve also seen a little bit of Private Practice,” he says. “Her work speaks for itself.”

Gilford’s casting comes less than two weeks after news broke that Map star Enrique Murciano had been dropped from the show for creative reasons.

Thoughts? Is Map suddenly on your radar now that Gilford’s on board? Sound off below!

King of the World in Italy with Bar



Taking some much-earned time off following the release of "Inception," Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted living it up with Bar Refaeli in Sardinia, Italy on Sunday night (August 8).

Making their way to a local nightclub, the beautiful couple joined up with supermodel Naomi Campbell and her man, Vladimir Doronin, in helping to celebrate the birthday of Fawaz Gruosi, founder and president of de Grisogono jewelry.

The outing comes amidst growing rumors that DiCaprio is close to proposing to his Israeli model girlfriend.

A source told the UK's Daily Star, “He is finally ready to settle down and make it official. Leo has told his closest friend that his mother has been helping him pick out an engagement ring for Bar."

Continuing on, the Daily Star insider adds, “He’s asked her to move in with him. Bar doesn’t mind spending the night at his bachelor pad, but she isn’t comfortable living there all the time.”

The Kills + fashion




French fashion brand Zadig & Voltaire have for long associated their clothes with music and the kind of people who not only play it, but also live it. This fascination with the rock 'n' roll lifestyle has seen Zadig & Voltaire focus their advertising campaigns on musical duos, be it Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, or Mark Ronson and Josephine de la Baume. Now, again working with Purple magazine head honcho and photographer Olivier Zahm, the brand has turned their attention to true rock royalty; Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince aka The Kills.

Idris Elba has revealed that he may return to NBC comedy The Office.

*faints*

The former star of The Wire previously appeared as Charles Miner, a rival to Michael Scott (Steve Carell), in seven episodes of the show's fifth season.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, Elba denied that he would replace the departing Carell full-time, but hinted that his character could return "closer to the season finale".

The actor will next be seen in upcoming Showtime series The Big C as a love interest for Cathy (Laura Linney). Elba joked that he had taken the role after "a request from Laura that I come and kiss on her".

The seventh season of The Office begins September 23 on NBC.

I didn't even like the character, I just need him on my TV. Oh, and we need an Idris tag. I will post about him regularly if necessary.

Mickey Mouse wants Glee to spice up its life

David Beckham: Loves Glee & Modern Family, But About That Pub With Gordon Ramsay...


They've done Madonna. They're working on Britney Spears.

Perhaps Glee should consider some Spice Girls?

Or, at the very least, a bit of Victoria Beckham…

David Beckham tells me Fox's high school musical series is one of their favorites.

"It's such a great program." He said at the Teen Choice Awards, where he was named Choice Male Athlete. "We love it."

So much so that David thinks Victoria would—of course—jump at the chance to be on the show. "I'm sure she'd love to go on Glee," he said. "Yeah, she'd definitely go on it. "

Among David's other favorites are Modern Family ("It just makes me laugh," he said) and…Friends!

"I'm a huge Friends fan," he said. "I know it's been over for quite some years but I could watch it over and over again. I love it."

And he also loves, (as we all know), soccer. He says he'll be back to taking his shirt off for us playing in about a month. He was sidelined in March with a ruptured Achilles tendon. "I can't wait," Becks said. "It's been five months literally doing nothing. I've never had that before.

"They're saying October but I want to be back in September," he continued. "That's me. I'm stubborn…I'll take chances and certain risks to get back earlier."

One thing he's not doing is opening an English pub in Los Angeles With Hell's Kitchen chef Gordon Ramsay as it was reported a few days ago. "Maybe Gordon and I should talk about doing it now since everyone seems to be talking it," he laughed. "You never know."

"I’ve definitely not put a fire under his ass I would never rush him to do something like that. We’re really comfortable with the way things are now. And it’s not up to me. When it happens, it happens. We talk about it. If we do it, I want it to be forever. I’m the mother of his children. I’m not a baby mama. There’s a lot more to me than that."

Meet MTV's First MTVTJ (WhateverTF that is)

First MTV TJ Gabi Gregg Wants To Give Followers 'A Voice'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MTV just got a little bit fresher. Gabi Gregg, who goes by @gabifresh on Twitter, was crowned MTV's first-ever Twitter Jockey at the live finale of "Follow Me: The Search for the First MTV TJ" on Sunday night (August 8).

The 24-year-old Detroit native and plus-size-fashion blogger was one of 20 contestants chosen by MTV, in partnership with ZYNC from American Express, to compete for a $100,000 contract to be the social-media face of MTV.

Throughout the first round of challenges, Gabi's eye for style and gregarious charm catapulted her to more than 5,000 Twitter followers and nabbed her the highest number of votes on the ZYNC by American Express Facebook hub.

Only five of the original contestants made it to the live finale in New York City, and Gabi, rocking a little black dress on the sparkly stage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, continued her winning streak to top the popular vote during every elimination round. Moments after it was revealed that Gabi nabbed the throne, the @MTVTJ account was transferred to her possession, and she tweeted her first official message: "Ommmmmgggggg thAnk you to everyone."

Gabi spoke to MTV News only moments after sending off her first dispatch, and she told us all about why she's excited about the position — including the fact that it's her first job since she graduated from college two years ago. She has big plans for the historic new position, and she's keeping it all about the followers.

"My main goal is to really connect with the audience," she said. "I don't want to be the same as the MTV Twitter; I want to keep it personable and keep in touch with the followers. I want to give them a voice."

Her first order of business? "Paying off my student loans," she says. We can't wait to see what her second is — and what she'll wear during all of them.

Creepy BTS Video of "Inferno" (short interview with Lindsay, the director, and some still images)

Before she spent 13 full days behind bars, Lindsay Lohan shot an inside look at her upcoming film, Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, in which she plays the late porn star.

In this exclusive, behind-the-scenes video, shot in a Burbank hotel in May, Lohan's character is forced into prostitution by her husband, Chuck Traynor. Photographer Tyler Shields captured the scene, and those images became the movie's poster.

Of her character's intial reaction to Traynor, Lohan says he was "dark and mysterious and rough, and different from anything she had experienced in life. Girls like that kind of stuff."

As for her own character, the actress, who was interviewed in the video by MSN's Kim Morgan, describes Lovelace as "an innocent girl who got trafficked into a situation."

Inferno director Matthew Wilder tells PEOPLE that while shooting this footage Lohan had the ability "to go in and out of very extreme emotions in a blink."

The film will resume production in mid-November, following Lohan's release from a court mandated stint in a treatment facility.

"I hope Lindsay's stay in rehab will soon be in the rearview mirror," says Wilder, "and we will be able to move on and just make something really good."

MLK Jr.'s Niece Is Still A Hater Bitch


Via RodOnline

The National Organization for Marriage's summer hate tour continued to the Georgia State Capitol over the weekend. The sparsely-attend rally's featured speaker was Alveda King, niece of slain civil rights legend Dr. Martin Luther King and a  former member of the Georgia House of Representatives. King is well known for her anti-choice and anti-gay views and once again raised the spectre of "genocide" when speaking against same-sex marriage. "It's been statistically proven that ... [marriage] guarantees the continuity of the generations. We don't want genocide, we don't want to destroy the sacred institution of marriage."

  Arisha Hatch from the Courage Campaign's NOM Tour Tracker conducted an excellent follow-up interview with King, who expanded on her bizarre extinction theories: "The best guard against extinction is marriage between one man and one woman raising those children. Statistics keep proving that when a male father and a female mother come together and they make a baby and raise the children, the children actually do better. They do better than families that are divorced, and I know that first hand."

King also rejected MLK's widow's famous support for gay rights and marriage equality, saying that she "shared" Dr. King's "DNA" and Coretta Scott King was "only related ... through marriage." Alveda King also refused to answer what she thought "would happen if white people were allowed to vote" on civil rights in the 1950s and 1960s.

Alveda King—who has had two abortions and admits to being "the first in the King family to have a divorce"—has previously said "everybody uses Martin Luther King Jr.’s name for their own benefit.” Truer words were never spoken.

Montana Fishburne Interview With Black Voices



alk about making a scene. Over the past week, Montana Fishburne has done just that -- with the news of her official debut as an adult entertainment star.

Who?

The 18-year-old daughter of acclaimed actor Laurence Fishburne announced plans to release a self-titled DVD project through the top-selling porn company, Vivid Entertainment. The news sent shock waves throughout the entertainment industry and became fodder for mainstream news programs like 'The Today Show' and 'The View.' Amid all the hysteria came her rather odd admission of wanting to pattern her career after that of media magnet Kim Kardashian.

An outcry ensued in the blogosphere and on message boards, with many claiming that Montana is ruining her father's acting legacy.

Yes, her father is the Tony Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated thespian of films such as 'Boyz N' TheHood,' 'What's Love Got to Do With It?' and the best-selling 'Matrix' movies, but Montana Fishburne is her own woman, as she attests. For a child of the rich and famous, she's mostly under the radar.

We never heard of the Westchester born., California-based hottie being accused of much, not withstanding a dust-up with LAPD. (Documents were unveiled about her being arrested for prostitution.)

Black Voices caught up with Montana to find out what everybody wants to know.

Black Voices: To what do you attribute to all the hysteria?

Montana Fishburne: People are going to talk no matter what. I'm excited that people are talking about it. I hope everything turns to more positive. I mean, they should be more excited about new porn coming out. I haven't seen a young black female porn star in a long time.

BV: How much did you make off of this? Was it six figures?

MF: I don't know.


BV: Well, everyone wants to know what your father thinks about it?

She said to HollywoodLife.com: 'The funny thing is, I really don't like it when people say I'm wholesome. I don't like that at all! I never said I was that and I never tried to portray it.'

'I'm honestly doing what I feel like I'm doing... and I'd just like to figure out who I am.'


Gomez, who is best known for roles in shows such as Wizards of Waverly Place and Ramona and Beezus, also revealed the actresses she most admires.

She said: 'I look up to people my family loves. [My inspirations] are Rachel McAdams and Sandra Bullock. They're very strong women in the acting world and really real people and I love them.'

Weezer’s Album Art for Hurley Is a Big Picture of Hurley

At right, please find the actual album art for Weezer's eighth album, due out on September 14. To reiterate, the album art for Weezer's new album, Hurley, will be a picture of ... Hurley. Someone wasn't disappointed by the Lost finale! Rivers Cuomo says of the image, "I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.' No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face."

BRACE YOURSELVES FOR A BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN POST

Springsteen Documentary to Be Shown on HBO



HBO has announced plans to show “The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town,’ ” a documentary that follows the making of Bruce Springsteen’s fourth album, Variety reported. Directed by Thom Zimney, who has made several films about Mr. Springsteen and his band, including the Emmy-nominated “Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live in New York City,” the film chronicles Mr. Springsteen’s work on “Darkness” from 1975, after the release of his pivotal album “Born to Run,” until 1978, a time when he was prohibited from recording any music because of a pending lawsuit with Mike Appel, his former manager. The film mixes footage from rehearsals during that time with recent commentary from Mr. Springsteen and the band. (Above, Mr. Springsteen, right, with Southside Johnny.) “The fact that this footage has been sitting in a vault, and no one has seen it for more than 30 years is just extraordinary,” Richard L. Plepler, a co-president of HBO, said at a Television Critics Association meeting on Saturday. Mr. Plepler and Michael Lombardo, programming president for HBO, said the documentary would be shown on the network in October, after a premiere on Sept. 14, as the opening film of the Toronto Film Festival.

At the recent San Diego Comic Con, Hammer Films CEO Simon Oakes took the time to speak to MovieWeb about Dan's involvement in the upcoming film adaptation of Susan Hill's The Woman in Black.

Mr. Oakes said: Daniel's an incredibly smart guy; like any young man who's been in film since he was ten years of age, he's got an incredible understanding of the vernacular of film making. He read the script, and twenty-four hours later he pretty much said he would do this next. It's a huge challenge for him; he's almost in every scene, it's a nine week shoot, it doesn't have the infrastructure around it like the Warners do with Potter. But I think he's got the smarts, intelligence and insight to deliver very, very well. He's a really, really smart kid.

Alan Ball womps; will not allow Snoop Dogg guest appearance

Image and video hosting by TinyPicThe stars of HBO vampire drama True Blood have dismissed suggestions that Snoop Dogg will appear on the show.

The rapper previously admitted that he would like a cameo role and also released a song dedicated to lead character Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

However, speaking at a UK convention, Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) denied that Dogg was being lined up for a part.

"Apparently Snoop has wanted to be on the show from the beginning, but I don’t think [creator] Alan Ball is going to let that happen,"he explained. "Having such a high-profile person appear in the show, I think it would take us all out of Bon Temps. [Alan] doesn't need to cast Snoop Dogg to get people to watch."

He added: "We're glad he watches and likes the show though."

Tramell's co-star Kristin Bauer (Pam Ravenscroft) agreed that casting the rapper could be damaging for the series.

"A lot of times on TV when ratings dip they go for stunt casting," she said. "It's not a good thing, and we definitely don't need that yet."

RedOne launches 2101 label



Lady Gaga's co-writer and producer has launched his own record label.

RedOne - who has also worked alongside the likes of Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue and Akon - has joined forces with Universal Music to form new label 2101, and has already made his first signing in the form of 23-year-old singer-songwriter Mohombi.

He said: "We are incredibly fortunate to be launching with an artist like Mohombi, who has so much potential. He is a powerhouse talent ... writing, singing, performing, dancing ... a true entertainer. Mohombi lifts my spirits and I believe he will elevate the world with his music."

The 'Poker Face' co-writer explained he thinks the secret to creating a global hit is encouraging artists to become a brand, as the fans are more likely to "buy into" them.

He told BBC News: "I thank God for my knowledge of music. But the real secret is the artist. We did it right with Gaga. People are buying into her. The whole package - her lifestyle, her sound, her vision."

RedOne went on to add he gets record labels coming to him all the time asking for him to create something which sounds like a Lady Gaga hit, but he will only invest his time in artists if they do likewise.

He said: "That's her sound. I made that music, yes, but I made it for Gaga, because that's her. That's what she breathes.

The Black Jamie Foxx Talks Shit About My Idol. Remains Pressed While Doing So

This bitch again.....



All the attention geared towards pubbing Montana's new "film" has sparked Jamie Foxx  to say something.  We would have appreciated Oprah, but Jamie decided to step in and let this "black girl lost" hear a few of his choice words about her and Brian Pumper.

Jamie Foxx Foxx took some shots at B. Pumper's rapping ability, saying Pumper should "stick to f***ing and buffing n***as penises because he is the worst rapper ever." The Foxxhole radio crew showed no mercy on Montana's pimple scarred butt cheeks either. Jamie also made sure to say what he would do if his daughter ever thought about releasing a sex tape.

DC Wife Lynda's Modeling Agency - Real or escorts?


In several Real Housewives of DC reviews there’s been, possibly, innuendo about Real Housewives of DC’s Lynda Erkiletian’s DC modeling agency after Lynda stated the agency catered to ambassadors and dignitaries.

The following are quotes from the Washington Post, TV Guide, and Entertainment Weekly about Lynda Erkiletian’s modeling agency. Do the quotes contain innuendo? We let our readers be the judge:

Lynda runs “the top modeling agency in Washington.” How many are there? “There are only so many fashion clients in Washington,” she notes, explaining that she caters to “the ambassadors, to the dignitaries.” Dignitaries need models? So many questions.
Lisa de Moraes – Washington Post

Lynda Erkiletian runs “the top modeling agency in Washingotn, D.C.” (How many others are there, Lynda? We’ll never let her live that down!) We see her auditioning some models, and she explains that “we cater to the ambassadors, to the dignitaries” (Note to self: At next embassy party, ask what they’re hiring models for.)
Reliable Source, Washington Post

Lynda Erkiletian, who owns a modeling agency, says she caters to dignitaries and ambassadors, leaving one wondering why, precisely, such VIPs need to rent models.
TV Guide

 Lynda: She owns her own modeling agency, seems to work hard, and is worried that Michaele is dangerously thin — she seems to have her wits about her, right? But then I realized that running a modeling agency in D.C. “catering to ambassadors” means you’re basically supplying escorts to parties, and when she referred to Michaele as “second tier,” the snobbery reeked.

Hayden Christensen & Rachel Bilson Call Off Engagement And Are Still Boring

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have officially ended their engagement.

Reports surfaced a couple months ago that the duo were on a break, but now the split is permanent. "Yes, the engagement is off," Bilson's rep tells PEOPLE, but declined to provide details on the breakup.

Distance was reportedly one of the main reasons for the split. With Bilson primarily in L.A., and Christensen in Canada, "It just wasn't working out," says a pal of the actress.

Now Bilson is "focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward," adds the friend.

Christensen, 29, and Bilson, 28, met on the set of Jumper in 2007, and got engaged in December of the following year.

Justin Bieber Advertising a Shitty Product to Kids


Justin Bieber is the new face for the Proactiv acne-fighting system!

“I know that for a teenager, it doesn’t matter how many people are looking at you, you don’t want acne on your face,” the 16-year-old tween sensation tells People. “I’m in the limelight all the time…I’m constantly doing interviews, constantly doing photo shoots and, you know, I’m determined to keep myself clear. Using Proactiv will help that.”

He adds, “My fans already know I’m just a regular kid, except the stuff about my life that’s not regular…like performing to thousands of kids and always being in the spotlight.”

Previous Proactiv faces include Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, and Jennifer Love Hewitt!

Leighton is also on the September issue of CosmoUK
  • On playing a mean character: "I am living my dream and having the time of my life! I’m lucky because I get to do that all day long and play a character who has a lot of noble qualities as well. I am really lucky she is such a well-written character."
  • On whether people expect she will be like Blair in real life: "Most people just run away, so perhaps that’s what they’re thinking! I think for the most part people understand that it’s just a character."
  • On wherther her high school experience was similar to Gossip Girl: "The complete opposite, to be honest. I had lived in NYC before but not in the Upper East Side - it was in the Upper West Side, which was very different. When I was a teenager I was in a public high school. I certainly was not popular by any means, and I didn’t have a car or a lot of money, so it was very different."
  • On who is the best kisser on the show: "Me, of course."
  • On whether she has plans to do more singing: "Yes, of course… I like to make music - I love to sing and write, and I love to perform, so I’m trying to figure out the release of my album. I have enough songs I feel comfortable putting out, and I want to do it the right way."
  • On her beauty regime: "As far as beauty goes, I never wear makeup when I’m not working. Very rarely I’ll put on a little bit of concealer here and there and maybe some red lipstick just to make it look like I made the effort - it does wonders."
  • On her beauty icon: "I really love Julianne Moore for having fair skin and a really beautiful smile. I love Cate Blanchett because she glows from within. And I love how Helen Mirren has aged so gracefully. She’s gorgeous and quite sexy."
  • On what she does to keep fit and healthy: "Exercise is fun when it doesn’t feel like exercise. Swimming, walking around a new city while travelling and cycling are all great."

    OTH's HBIC Joy to crossover to LUX

    Exclusive: The CW plotting 'One Tree Hill'/'Life Unexpected' crossover event!



    Two One Tree Hill characters are about to pay an unexpected visit to Portland.

    Sources confirm to me exclusively that new Tuesday companions One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected will stage a crossover this fall when OTH songbirds Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) and Mia (Kate Voegele) guest-star on the Oct. 12 episode of LUX

    From a creative standpoint, the stunt actually makes sense. Haley and Mia will travel to Portland to perform at a music festival sponsored by Cate’s (Shiri Appleby) radio station. “Haley and Cate are surprised to learn that they share a similar back story [as] mothers,” teases an insider.

    Business-wise, The CW is no doubt hoping some of OTH‘s 3 million viewers will check out LUX.

    Thoughts? Are you cool with Tree Hill invading LUX‘s turf—particularly if it exposes more eyeballs to the sophomore gem? Or is this the case of two great tastes (okay, one great taste and one mediocre taste) that don’t go great together? Sound off below!

    Justin Timberlake Thinks The Smell Of BO Is Sexy...


    Justin Timberlake says he gets turned on by the smell of a woman’s BO.

    Lovely. I’m sure your lady Jessica Biel is mightily flattered by that compliment.

    He said: “Some people say BO (body odour) can be an aphrodisiac and I agree.

    “It depends on where the body the odour is coming from. It’s a long-term intimate thing.

    “You don’t want it to be the first thing you smell when she comes into the room. It’s about layers – layers meant to be discovered.”

    Riiiiight.

    He also revealed that he likes his women to wear fragrance that smells of food

    “Men like scents that have more to do with food than roses. Something subtle and not too loud or overt.

    “A woman doesn’t need something whimsical to be sexy – smart is sexy. Sleek is sexy.”

    And so is a clean and scented armpit!

    Tom Cruise's Daughter Is Quitting Scientology?

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    TOM Cruise’s adopted daughter Bella wants to live with her mom Nicole Kidman – because she’s desperate to break away from the Church of Scientology, according to a new report.

    Britain’s Look magazine alleges Bella — who is home-schooled by her aunt Cass, Tom’s sister — plans to leave Los Angeles for Nashville, Tennessee, in December when she turns 18.

    “It seems like Bella may have had enough of the tough rules she has to live by as a Scientologist and she’s told Nicole she wants to move in with her,” said one source.

    “Nicole’s thrilled, but Tom desperately hopes she changes her mind.”


    The source also revealed that Tom’s wife, actress Katie Holmes, will be upset by Bella’s decision.

    “Katie will feel like she’s been stabbed in the heart by Bella’s news,” said the insider. “She sees herself as her mother, best friend and confidante. It must be heartbreaking.”

    The source says Bella turning her back on Scientology — of which Tom is a high-profile member — will be embarrassing for the Top Gun star.

    “This means that Bella would be leaving a religion that Tom’s one of the most high-profile faces of,” blabbed the mole. “That could be embarrassing for him.”

    LWYL is overplayed, MTV confirms it

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Rihanna is making hit songs, breaking records and taking names. The singer is currently tied with a few of her pop comrades for the most #1 songs on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart. She ties with Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Mariah Carey for the most #1's in the Nielsen survey. Rihanna now has six #1's on her résumé thanks to her chart-topping collaboration with Eminem, "Love the Way You Lie," according to Billboard.com.

    Rihanna's other #1 songs on the pop chart include 2006's "SOS" (for one week); 2008's "Take a Bow" (for three weeks); 2008's "Disturbia" (three weeks); her late-2008 T.I. collabo "Live Your Life" (two weeks); and this year's "Rude Boy" (two weeks). "Love the Way You Lie" has been on top for one week so far.

    Earlier this year Beyoncé and Lady Gaga tied Mariah Carey for six #1 pop songs with their collaboration, "Telephone." Carey had six songs hit #1 on the Hot 100 before the Pop Songs chart was created in 1993, and then six others since its creation. Meanwhile, Beyoncé collected hers from 2003 to 2010. Gaga was the fastest to tie the record, with all six released from 2009-2010.

    Avril Lavigne, Pink, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake all come in a close second with five #1 pop songs in their careers.

    Rihanna had fans talking last week when the video for "Love the Way You Lie" was released. The singer, who was assaulted by then-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, appears in the video that depicts a violent love affair between Dominic Monaghan and Megan Fox.

    Snooki to President Obama: Stop Lying About Me!

    Snooki is upset with President Obama.

    It certainly has nothing to do with foreign policy, health care reform or any other such important matters.

    She doesn't like that he's, well, lying about her...

    During his appearance on The View the other day, Obama said he didn't know who Snooki was. However, in May, our commander in chief joked that Jersey Shore's pint-sized firecracker, along with JWoww and The Situation, should be excluded from paying the new tanning tax.

    "I know he knows who I am," Snooki told me yesterday at the Television Critics Association convention at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. "Why did he have to lie and say he didn't know me? He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff and now he doesn't know who I am? He has to stop lying."

    'Scott Pilgrim' soundtrack and score are streaming

     

    As you may have heard, the big screen adaptation of "Scott Pilgrim" hits theaters this week, and while I've already dropped my stamp of approval on the movie itself, there's another big aspect of it that hasn't seen much discussion: the soundtrack, which is currently streaming in its entirety on Spinner.com!

    Those of you who want to go into the theater completely fresh might want to skip out on listening to it, as the songs are actually a pretty big part of the film -- the opening sequence is built around Sex Bob-Omb's first song, and it's a pretty big moment. But then again, that's probably to be expected from the fact that a) Scott's band is a central piece of the story, and b) the film's advertising has seen a lot of Michael Cera as Scott straight up leaning on his bass.

    Director Edgar Wright's soundtracks are always pretty awesome -- "Shaun of the Dead's" use of Grandmaster Flash's "White Lines" and Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" were perfect examples of musical cues as gags, and the inclusion of XTC and Supergrass on the "Hot Fuzz" soundtrack made sure it got an awful lot of play at the comic book store where I used to work -- but he's really outdone himself here.

    Not only does it have good songs, including one by Frank Black (former frontman of the Pixies, who get namechecked in the comic and the movie) and the Plumtree song that gave Scott Pilgrim his name, but the actual songs by the fictional bands are pretty great too. The Sex Bob-Omb tracks (which were written by Beck) nail the low-fi garage rock quality of a band that rehearses in Stephen Stills' living room, and Crash and the Boys' "I'm So Sad, So Very, Very Sad" is unquestionably the highlight of the album.

    I will say, though, that I'm pretty disappointed that the Clash at Demonhead's song doesn't appear to have made it to the album. I remember liking that one quite a bit. [EDIT: No sooner did this go up than that song came up on the stream. It's the only song on the album not credited to the fictional band: "Black Sheep," by Metric!]

    There's also a streaming version of the film's score by Nigel Godrich, which will be released alongside the soundtrack album tomorrow.

    Ratface Hough to join St. Cheryl on X Factor?



    Cheryl Cole reportedly wants Derek Hough to assist her at the Judges' House stage on The X Factor.

    According to the Daily Star Sunday, the Dancing With The Stars performer will help Cole choose the acts she wants to mentor on the live shows. Last year, Pop Idol winner Will Young assisted her in picking her top three acts.

    The Girls Aloud star apparently believes that Hough will help her choose an act who can dance as well as sing, which will impress Simon Cowell, who has admitted that he is looking for an all-round performer in 2010.

    "Simon thought last year's contestants didn't move enough. He called one of them, Stacey Solomon, a singing candle," said a source.

    "Cheryl thinks that having dancer and choreographer Derek on board will boost her chances of winning. She can help with their singing and he can teach them some moves."

    Cole is also rumored to have switched filming of her Judges' Houses episode from her Surrey mansion to LA so that she can stay close to her alleged new love interest.

    Cinematical recently interviewed  "King of the B-movies" Roger Corman. Corman has produced several classic movies, two of the more the recent ones being Dinoshark and the upcoming Sharktopus. This was one of the questions.

    Cinematical: I saved the most important question for last. Who wins a fight to the death: Dinoshark or Sharktopus?

    Corman: We anticipate that there will be a Dinoshark vs. Sharktopus. I've just been told that somebody has started a website, petitioning SyFy to make Dinoshark vs. Sharktopus. Sharktopus wont come out until September 25 and Syfy has already told me that assuming it does well we will be doing Dinoshark vs. Sharktopus and as to who wins -- I don't know. I think it would most likely be Sharktopus, because he has more weapons than Dinoshark. Or, it could be mutual destruction.

    Aussie TV Gets Its Gay On



    Last month, MTV America earned a rating of “excellent” from GLAAD in an annual review of gay and lesbian content on TV. MTV was praised for its solid representation of gay, lesbian and bisexual characters on shows like The Real World, for featuring people from all walks of life.
    It's the first time a television network has earned an excellent rating; others networks received a fail grade for a consecutive year.

    With the spotlight turned squarely on TV shows, it seems some Aussie studios are embracing gay and lesbian characters and upping their gay-factor with new characters and plot lines in the works.

    Next week, long-running Australian soap Neighbours clocks up its 6000th episode, but if there was an excuse for the long-running TV series to throw a party, that isn’t it.

    The milestone overshadows the bigger news this week – one Ramsay Street’ resident is coming out of the closet.
