The Game, Kat Stacks and 50 Cent beefing on Twitter!

Village bike Kat Stacks was targeted by both 50 Cent and The Game on
Twitter for, well, being a whore. There, I said it. Assuming this all started because of Kat Stacks exposing Soulja Boy.

50's tweets weren't half as entertaining so I haven't screencapped them. But he dedicated a few fiery tweets towards Michelle Obama, Necole Bitchie, the producers on his last album and ...his grandma! http://twitter.com/50cent

Is Chris Brown a problem for 'Takers'?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
With a star cast including Zoe Saldana, Matt Dillon, Hayden Christensen, Idris Elba, rapper T.I., singer Chris Brown and Paul Walker, you would think the publicity machine for the film "Takers" would be working overtime.
Not so much it seems.

"We posted the trailer and that was about it," said Rodney Brazeau, senior editor for The Movie Blog. "Usually blogs like ours get an e-mail from the studio or a marketing company that will say 'Here are some photos or an exclusive clip from the movie' and we pick and choose what we want to put up. But [with 'Takers'] there has been nothing."

The heist film about a group of affluent, sophisticated thieves out for one big score -- which also co-stars Michael Ealy, Jay Hernandez and Marianne Jean-Baptiste -- opens Friday. In addition to the megawatt ensemble cast, the glitzy, glossy $30 million plus production boasts the distinction of being one of the most visible projects Brown has been involved in since his legal woes.

The singer pleaded guilty in an assault case involving his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. Bradley Jacobs, senior editor for Us Weekly, said Brown's co-starring role in a film containing plenty of violence could be a tough sell to moviegoers.

"It's been a while since the Chris Brown-Rihanna incident, but it's still fresh enough in people's minds that it's hard to market a movie with him in it," he said. "I don't feel like he's really found redemption with audiences yet."

Lady Gaga doesn't see Paris Hilton as an artist

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Telephone singer Lady Gaga said she doesn't see Paris Hilton as an artist.

The 24-year-old went to New York's Convent Of The Sacred Heart as a child along with heiresses Paris and Nicky Hilton.

However she said they are very different despite going to the same school.

Speaking to Britain's Q magazine, she said: 'It's true [that we went to school together], but I don't see [Paris] as an artist.

'People assume that all the girls who went to my school were like Nicky and Paris, and the truth is that I went to a very, very religious school and some girls were very artistic and some did drugs and didn't give a f**k. It was just like any other high school. Except we had nuns.'


She added: '[At school] I was the smart, studious theatre and music student. I didn't hang out with all the popular blonde girls. I wasn't blonde really until I was 20 years old.'

Katy Perry: I Won't Wear Latex to My Wedding

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Don't believe everything you read about Katy Perry's upcoming wedding to Russell Brand.

"I'm definitely not going to get married in latex," she tells PEOPLE of one rampant rumor. "When I wear latex onstage, I sweat. I could wring out those dresses – and I don't want to do that at my wedding."

The singer, 25 – whose second album, Teenage Dream drops Aug. 24 – does, however, use her wardrobe to communicate her feelings about her fiancé.

In June, she wore a half-U.S., half-U.K. flag to represent her union with the British actor-comedian.

"I feel very divided,"
she says. "I'm half American and half English, in a way. I thought it would be fun to make a what-I-feel dress."

Then, there's the what-she-feels new album. "I love putting my emotions, relationships and convictions into lyrics," says Perry. The new single, "Teenage Dream," "is a love song," she says. "There's nothing like your first love."

"When you get older, you can be guarded because you've been hurt,"
adds the singer. "When you're a teenager, it's all or nothing. All bets in."

Jessica Simpson Using ‘Real Girls’ to Show Her Collection at New York Fashion Week

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Jessica Simpson is no stranger to the front row, but to show her own collection during New York Fashion Week, the blonde bombshell is saying “no” to the runway and to professional models! Instead, Jessica plans to host a private presentation to preview her spring 2011 apparel and accessories collection, and showcase her new denim line using 8 of her best friends as models.

Enlisting the likes of sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and close friend Cacee Cobb, Jessica will dress her nearest and dearest in her debut denim line as well as jewelry and apparel from her fall/holiday collection. The models will mingle with fashion editors and guests while brother-in-law Pete Wentz spins tunes.

With all this star-wattage, it’s going to be hard to concentrate on the clothes!

Rapper Nicki Minaj: I'll show you more

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Three years ago, Nicki Minaj was getting fired from jobs more often than she was paying her rent on time.

The Trinidad-born, New York City-raised artist has written lyrics about having an alcoholic father who once tried to burn down the house with her mom inside.

Certainly, Onika "Nicki Minaj" Maraj seems to be an unlikely candidate to become one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of today.

After spending the early part of her childhood at her grandmother's house, Minaj eventually landed in Queens with her parents. By the third grade, she already had an affinity for singing and acting and would later attend the famed LaGuardia Arts High School to study drama.

"I was thinking in my head I was going to be a famous actress," Minaj says. "When I got out of high school, I didn't really want to take time and go and audition, I just wanted to get a job and work and get my own place."

Minaj quickly became bored with the nine to five and decided to give rap music a shot.


A friend in her neighborhood asked Minaj to write a hook for his song, and the young 20-something delivered a chorus and verse that left her collaborator in awe. Figuring if she really put her mind to it that she could succeed in rap, Minaj decided to quit her last job. And then she told her mother.

Jason Sudeikis Has Seen January Jones Naked


Saturday Night Live funnyman Jason Sudeikis is getting his picture taken a lot more these days, thanks to his rather photogenic girlfriend – Mad Men's January Jones.

"[Paparazzi] don't follow me around," the SNL star, 34, told George Lopez on his TBS show Lopez Tonight Tuesday. "[But] they sometimes follow around the girl that I'm dating." For whatever reason, Sudeikis has managed to appear beside Jones in several photos recently, prompting speculation about their relationship.

So, are they dating?

"I don't want to get into it," Sudeikis said upon being asked by Lopez if he had "seen [Jones] naked and everything."

"I'm kidding," he quickly added. "I do want to get into it! I do, and I have!"
(I JUST CRIED AND THEN THREW UP)

Sudeikis, who costars in the new movie Going the Distance with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, recently got divorced from his wife of six years, 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon. He was also briefly linked to Jennifer Aniston earlier this summer. Jones, 32, who hosted SNL last November, has been previously linked to Entourage Emmy winner Jeremy Piven and The Pianist Oscar winner Adrien Brody.

ARGH

January Jones stans and those who "don't get" the JSu love, please let the rest of us mourn/punch walls in peace. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm feeling a little bit like Philadelphia Phillies first baseman, Ryan Howard, right now:

BTS Calvin Klein's Envy campaign (aka Zoe Saldana being hot&sexy)



Shooting to stardom thanks to her "Avatar" role, Zoe Saldana has since landed herself the dream job as the face of Calvin Klein's new Envy line of women's underwear.

Having revealed the print ads earlier this month, fans have now been treated to a TV commercial preview before the much-awaited ad spot debuts on the E! Network before the Emmy Awards on Sunday night (August 29).

Executive vice president of global communications at Calvin Klein Inc., Malcolm Carfrae, previously told WWD that Zoe's Envy campaign will be “one of the biggest launches in the brand’s history."

As for her take on ladies' undergarments, Saldana said, “I like when you are able to assist your body to look amazing as opposed to replacing anything. That’s exactly what Calvin Klein Underwear Envy does. It helps you, it assists you, but it will not overshadow what you can bring naturally.”

Quotes:
On what made her realize she made a mistake
My boobs are crushing me. My body's still getting used to them, and I have major anxiety about it. I was taking painkillers, but they weren't working, so I stopped. It hurts either way.

On jealous haters
Women are always jealous. I don't judge anybody or what they do. That's just not who I am.

Everybody's a hater. It's this whole gossipy, high school, feudy, slanderous thing. It's kind of funny they're even talking about me - thanks for talking about me! The only person who I care about judging me at the end of the day is God. That's who I answer to.

On Dr. Ryan being an artist
He was more than a doctor. He was a genius. I feel like a walking Picasso

I'm not so quite sure she ever saw a Picasso painting before.

Justin Bieber to star in 'Back to the Future' remake?

Justin Bieber is one of those celebrities that you either love or loathe. While most people old enough to drive seem to find the You Tube star turned pop singer Bieber to be annoying, his huge base of younger fans has made him a star. Which might be why his newest rumored project might be taking on the Michael J. Fox role in a new reboot of the "Back To The Future" movie franchise.

Several British tabloids are reporting that Bieber is being considered for the starring role in the remake, assuming that "he is capable of acting at that level." When Fox took on the original role, he had a hit TV series ("Family Ties") and several hit movies under his belt.

Bieber is younger than Fox was when he starred in the first "Future" movie, and if took the role it would be written to reflect his younger age. "The most important part of the film is the time travel aspects," said one unnamed film executive. "In fact, some of the plot works better with a younger character."

The biggest problem with the idea might be that the three "Future" films are well-made and fondly remembered by audiences. Even if the remake does make it to the screen, odds are that it will face the same box-office fate as the recent remake of "The Karate Kid."

Judge: Chris Brown Doing a 'Great Job'

Chris Brown just got a huge pat on the back from the judge in his felony abuse case ... including a "great job" for following the terms of his probation so well.

During the brief hearing, the judge reviewed the progress report document turned in by Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos ... and she was very pleased with what she saw.

The judge said Brown has been attending all of his court-ordered domestic violence counseling sessions and has been "working consistently" on completing his community labor.

As previously reported, Brown pled guilty to felony assault last year for beating up Rihanna.

His next progress report is November 18.

Steel Train Debuts New Video for 'Turnpike Ghost'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


The video for Steel Train's new single, 'Turnpike Ghost,' actually embodies the name of frontman Jack Antonoff's "other" band -- fun. Filmed in L.A. with comedic actors Jake Johnson ('Get Him to the Greek') and Keir O'Donnell ('Wedding Crashers'), the video takes place on the set of fictitious late-night talk show 'Up Late w/ Al Scalzo.'

"Our whole thing was, 'How do we make a video that's going to be fun and interesting to watch?' because nowadays you could buy a video camera for $500 and make a video that looks as good as anything in the '90s," Antonoff tells Spinner. "We have a lot of friends in L.A. who are comedians and writers, so we just put the song in their hands. We loved the idea of playing a random part in the video -- we thought it would be cool to play characters and then have the band portrayed by six-year-olds."

It makes for an instant classic that's a throwback to the golden era of music videos. There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments, but unlike the drunken host of the fictional 'Up Late w/ Al Scalzo,' we won't spoil the surprises. You're just going to have to watch it for yourself below.

Frances Bean 'moves in with Faithfull'



Frances Bean Cobain has reportedly moved in with Marianne Faithfull.

The 18-year-old - who was recently released from her grandmother's guardianship - has planned to spend the next year at Faithfull's home in Paris while she works on her art.

A source told The Sun: "Frances has a strong relationship with Marianne.

"She's her Bohemian grandmother."

It was recently revealed that Frances received 40% of her father Kurt Cobain's estate upon her 18th birthday.

The way I understand it is that Frances is going to live at Marianne's apartment in Paris while she is off touring (in 2011) and recording her new album this fall. It's scheduled to be released in March 2011!

Reed has been filming Catch .44 with True Blood''s Deborah Ann Woll and is working on a scheme to get on the show. "I'm going to visit her on the set one day, coincidentally, and be like 'Hey Alan! Alan Ball, how are ya? ... You know it could be funny because I'm in Twilight, that could be funny?' I don't think they'll go for it," Nikki said. "[But] I'm willing to push myself."

But what's really funny is that she doesn't necessary want to play a vampire. "I think I would like to try being a werewolf," she said.

Why You Need to Start Paying Attention to Michael Fassbender (If You Aren't Already)



Ever since Inglourious Basterds hit theaters last August, lusty young women people have been telling me how much they would love to see Michael Fassbender father their children in other roles. And ever since Inglourious Basterds hit theaters last August, I have been yelling at those same people to see Steve McQueen's Hunger, which is not only my favorite debut film of this young millennium, but also home to the most remarkable performance of Fassbender's already impressive career. Considering yourself a Fassbender fan without having seen Hunger is like considering yourself a Michael Jordan fan having only seen him play baseball - valid, but kinda incomplete (Fassbender, by the way, has no relation to Rainer Werner Fassbinder - their names are spelled and pronounced differently).

Ryan Gosling's Band Performs for Old Folks

Ryan Gosling's (surprisingly great) band Dead Man's Bones performs in an old folks' home in this lengthy music video for their "Pa Pa Power" single. There's something a little (more than a little?) ironic about a band called Dead Man's Bones performing for a group of people nearing the end of their lives, but, hey, that's the sort of irony we can get behind.

Oh, and did I mention that the band performs with a children's choir? Yeah, your heartstrings will get pulled. But the director manages to pull the whole thing off without getting overly sentimental, even finding a way to work in a few dark, surreal sequences. We can celebrate this video for two reasons: (1) it's pretty great on its own and (2) a successful actor actually has a band that doesn't suck! Who would've thought?

Was Britney Spears Bamboozled Into Virtual Child Porn Protest Art?



Britney Spears is on the cover of British publication Pop Magazine. The images, the work of one of Japan's most famous artists, feature Britney in a bathing suit and a wedding dress. If only it were that simple. It's not.

The photos were art directed by Takashi Murakami, who is often referred to as "The Andy Warhol of Japan" for his pop-infused art. Murakami draws from manga and anime to create his work, which has adorned everything from Louis Vuitton bags to Kanye West albums.

In the interview, Spears says she is a Murakami fan. "I loved working with Takashi," she said. "I especially liked how he took high-end fashion and incorporated it with Japanese manga."

No word whether Spears especially likes the Japanese manga the photos seem to refer to: "My Wife Is A Grade Schooler". Back when the Tokyo Municipal government was looking to ban the questionable depictions of underage characters in anime, manga and video games, My Wife Is A Grade Schooler, an out of print manga, was fingered as an example of a work that depicted young characters in an inappropriate manner.

Jennifer Aniston to strip naked in her next movie with Paul Rudd



Jennifer Aniston is taking extreme lengths to banish her 'girl-next-door' image once and for all - she's set to strip, take drugs and indulge in a threesome in her next movie, according to reports.

The "Friends" star's latest film "The Switch", about an unmarried woman who uses artificial insemination to have a child, was branded a flop earlier this month, amid scathing reviews and disappointing box office takings.

But Aniston is firing back at critics by taking up a role in Judd Apatow's "Wanderlust" opposite Paul Rudd. The pair will play a married couple who become hippies, while Aniston's character smokes cannabis, strips off her clothes and embarks on affairs, including one same-sex romp scene.

Is England's sweetheart becoming Americanized?

Cheryl Cole developing an American accent after spending the summer in L.A.?



X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has started to develop an American accent after spending the summer in Hollywood, says a report.

Pals have noticed that the Geordie lass has started to use a number of phrases and expressions from boyfriend Derek Hough.


Sources told The Sun that the 27-year-old has developed a transatlantic twang.

The insider told the newspaper: "Cheryl has developed a slight American accent while she's been there but it's still a long way off sounding like she's not from Newcastle.

"Derek has been mocking her about a few phrases, and he also does a good impression of her voice now."

Cheryl recently hit the headlines when it was claimed that she has returned to the gym to improve her fitness.

Sources have said that the Girls Aloud singer has been "desperate" to work on her fitness since falling ill with malaria.

An insider claimed that Cole has said that she feels that she is "out of shape".

A source told the Daily Mirror: "Cheryl hasn't been able to exercise in over two months and it's been frustrating the hell out of her.

"Now she's feeling better, she is desperate to start boosting her cardiovascular fitness.

"But the main incentive is the forthcoming photoshoot of her next solo album. Originally put back, it's been rescheduled for a couple of weeks' time, and she wants to be in brilliant shape.

The 2010 VMA Countdown: Madonna owns the stage at the first VMAs



The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards are only a few weeks away. The biggest party of the year features nominated clips by Lady Gaga, Eminem, Jay-Z, Ke$ha and Katy Perry and will feature performances by Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Drake, B.o.B and Florence and the Machine (with many more to be announced). In order to properly prepare yourself for what's to come, every day the MTV Newsroom Blog will deliver a classic moment in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards. Today's installment: Madonna sets the first VMAs on fire.

On September 14, 1984, the worlds of music, television and awards shows changed forever when hosts Dan Aykroyd and Bette Midler kicked off the very first MTV Video Music Awards. Obviously, the first VMAs looks pretty odd from this vantage point, but the twist is they actually seemed pretty odd back when they actually happened. Midler was certainly a bizarre choice to co-host, and the list of winners that year included some early MTV visionaries (David Bowie, the Cars, Cyndi Lauper) but also some unusual choices (ZZ Top and Herbie Hancock, who took home a total of five Moonmen that night).

But the first VMAs will be best remembered as the forum that allowed Madonna to don a wedding dress and writhe around on stage during "Like a Virgin." It was sexy, shocking and memorable, and it successfully set the tone for future VMA performances.



The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on September 12 at 9 p.m. ET. Fans can go to VMA.MTV.com (or text VMA to 97979 for Verizon subscribers) to vote for the winners from now through September 12.

THE HELL YOU SAY: Gerard Depardieu Thinks Juliette Binoche is "Nothing"



Gerard Depardieu is at it again -- channeling his inner Serge Gainsbourg and being outrageous. The actor, never one to bite his tongue, usually saves his outbursts for politicians, but he turned on his colleagues in a recent interview with the Austrian mag Profil.

The most shocking comments were reserved for fellow star Juliette Binoche. The actress -- who's won an Oscar, a Best Actress award at this year's Cannes Film Festival for her work in Abbas Kiarostami's Certified Copy, and critical acclaim -- apparently doesn't impress Depardieu. During his interview, the actor went off on a tirade highlighted by the following question:

"Please can you explain to me what the secret of this actress is meant to be? I would really like to know why she has been so esteemed for so many years. She has nothing. Absolutely nothing!"

He goes on to rant about how she's less of an actress than other French stars: "Compared with her, Isabelle Adjani is great even if she's totally nuts. Or Fanny Ardant -- she is magnificent, extremely impressive. But Binoche? What has she ever had going for her?"

He wasn't done there, though. Next, the surly actor turned his rage toward filmmaker Leos Carax, who cast Binoche in his film Les Amants du Pont Neuf: "Carax needed six years to shoot his film with Binoche, which turned out not even to be a film but just a piece of shit."

While no one knows what prompted this outburst, the more cynical amongst us are speculating that it's because Binoche has an Oscar -- while the 61-year-old Depardieu does not. Whatever the reason, Depardieu comes out of this looking like a real jerk, wouldn't you agree?

Mary-Louise Parker Does Not Smoke Weed, but She Has Licked a Pot Lollipop



I can recall the exact moment I fell in love with Mary-Louise Parker. It was during an Emmy roundtable last year hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, featuring Emmy-nominated actresses like Christina Applegate, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, and of course Parker. She discussed her occasional guest stint on The West Wing, and how some devoted fans of the show made it very clear that they didn’t like her. “They probably have to fuck with the lights off,” she muttered about her detractors. And then her eyes widened and she covered her mouth, as if she’d momentarily forgotten she was on camera. It was snarky and crude and may’ve been pre-meditated, but it was also a refreshing contrast to the eyelash-batting “please love me” attitude of so many Hollywood actresses.

Mary-Louise Parker isn’t America’s sweetheart. She isn’t Julia Roberts or Drew Barrymore. She isn’t bubbly and effusive and adorable. She’s rough around the edges and a little surly, the kind of woman who could probably handle herself in a bar fight. (A real bar fight, not the movie kind with breakaway bottles.) And she isn’t just like that in real life. On her Showtime series Weeds – currently in its sixth season, which you can catch every Monday at 10 p.m. ET – she plays a widow named Nancy Botwin who sells marijuana to support her family and is involved in a messy relationship with a Mexican drug lord who shares her enthusiasm for rough sex. It’s a role she reportedly took over a plum gig on Desperate Housewives (which eventually went to Teri Hatcher), choosing Weeds because, in her words, “it was uglier.”

I called Parker to talk about the new season of Weeds, and our conversation was probably more awkward than it needed to be, for which I take full responsibility. I probably shouldn’t have tried quite so hard to impress her with my knowledge of marijuana minutiae. As it turns out, name-dropping “Alaskan Thunder Fuck” is not a foolproof way to win her heart.

'Takers' a frenetic, enjoyable heist film.




"Ten percent to the usual charities?" I love a line like that, smack in the middle of a scene featuring bank robbers dividing up the spoils. It proves they're good guys at heart, willing to spread it around (if only for the sake of appearances) while blowing the rest on bling, ladies, threads, cars and bling. Oh, and bling.

Michael Jackson tops CNN music icon poll


The legendary King and Queen of Pop, Michael Jackson and Madonna (#1 and #6)

(CNN) -- The votes are in and Michael Jackson is your number one global music icon.

Almost 100,000 of you voted to tell us that the self-styled "King of Pop," who died suddenly in June 2009, is the musician you rate above all others.

British pop group The Beatles, late Canto pop sensation Leslie Cheung, rock 'n' roller Elvis Presley and Reggae godfather Bob Marley also made the top five.

No female artists made the list, although U.S. pop queen, Madonna came in at number six, narrowly missing a place.

Last month CNN's arts and culture program, icon, asked you to vote for your top five most iconic musicians of all time.

Filming Locations And Details of On The Road in Mexico

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Twilightpoison.com has filming details of the filming of On The Road in Mexico.

"Kristen Stewart is currently filming her new movie On The Road in Bariloche, Argentina. Fans have been following closely the filming of the movie, in which Tom Sturridge (Rob’s best friend) will also co-star. Kristen filmed in Montreal, Canada a couple of weeks ago, and will also film in New Orleans.
After the crew finishes their scenes in Argentina, they will move to Mexico and we know the locations. It’s worth noting that Kristen’s character doesn’t have scenes in Mexico, so she might not go there at all. Tom Sturridge, however, will join Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.

Here’s what we know.

The crew will start filming in Mexico on September 18th (they will be in the country for the national festivities! The 200th celebration of the Mexican Independence. Hope they have a lot of fun!). They will film first in the towns Viesca, Parras de la Fuente and General Cepeda in Coahuila, North of Mexico.

We also knows that Mexican producer Tita Lombardo will be in charge of the production in Mexico. We’ve heard reports that the crew will be in the country for three weeks. Some say the filming of the movie concludes in Mexico, but in the press release they also listed New Orleans (and I think Canda again?), so I don’t think they’ll wrap production just yet."

Drake Marries Nicki Minaj! (Or Not?) *UPDATED*


EDIT: They f--king did it. Played a joke, that is.

Reps for both Drake and Nicki Minaj tell E! News that the rappers did not tie the knot, though both tweeted that they did earlier today.

While Drake said in his tune "Miss Me" that he fancied marrying the Trinidadian newcomer, the duo decided to team up instead for what appears to be a publicity stunt. (And we bet plenty of people have been looking up that song today.)



Drake Marries Nicki Minaj: "She's Finally Mine"


Today 3:22 PM PDT by Natalie Finn


They f--king did it.

Just as Drake said he was hoping to do one day in his tune "Miss Me," the rapper has gone ahead and married Nicki Minaj.

"Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She's finally mine. :)," he tweeted Friday afternoon.

No other details were forthcoming at this time, but Minaj went ahead and confimed via Twitter as well.

"Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot," she wrote, after asking her new hubby, "U scurred? @drakkardnoir u ready to make the announcement or wha?"

To which he replied (and she retweeted), "Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use."

Aw.

Drake, who starred in the hit Canadian series DeGrassi: The Next Generation under his born name, Aubrey Graham, canceled his European tour this summer so that he could spend more time with his ailing mom. And apparently he decided to throw a daughter-in-law into the mix.

In "Miss Me," the 23-year-old raps: "I love Nicki Minaj, I told her, I'd admit it; I hope one day we get married, just to say we f--king did it; And girl I'm f--king serious, I'm with it if you with it."

F--king serious, indeed.

Kick-Ass and X-Men First Class director behind the axing of the UK Film Council

Michael Vaughn on set of Kick-Ass

The man behind films such as Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels and Kick-Ass admitted he was the one who suggested to Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt that the body should be axed.

He said: “The emotion needs to be reduced down to hard facts and to what's best for everyone in the long term and not just the short term.

“Britain has the best directors, writers, producers, actors and crews in the world. We also have the two biggest franchises of all time: Harry Potter and James Bond. Shot in England. Made by the British. But all the money goes back to America.”

Vaughn says Hollywood studios should have to pay back tax credits for shooting in Britain and also pay a share of profits.

He added: “I've had more successes on a ratio of movies being developed to those being made — and for making profit — than the whole of the UK Film Council. If I can do it, why can't they?

Final Real Housewives Daily Post

RUMOR: Ramona Singer Throws Major Diva Fit

 
On Thursday, The Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer joined New Jersey housewife Danielle Staub and Atlanta housewife NeNe Leakes to tape an upcoming episode of The Maury Povich Show in which they give real-life housewives makeovers.
 
Staub, 48, didn't act out; Singer, 53, apparently did.
 
Backstage, Singer was "standoffish, antisocial and on her Blackberry the whole time," a crew source tells Us Magazine. "She seemed jealous that people were making more of a fuss about Danielle and asking for a picture with her."
 
The insider says that when the three housewives eventually posed for photos together, "Ramona suddenly sat down and said, 'I’m not taking any more pictures.'"
 
After taping the in-studio segment, they headed to NYC's John Barrett Salon for the makeovers. "Ramona told the producers, 'I'm hungry! I'm going to lunch and then Bergdorf Goodman,'" the source tells Us. "So she and NeNe went to lunch, leaving Danielle alone at the salon. The crew had to shoot around NeNe and Ramona until they showed up nearly an hour late."
 
When she returned, Singer demanded "the best hair and makeup person at John Barrett," snipes the source. "It was ridiculous -- she was already made up from the studio!"

Adds the insider, "She was a total handful! She threw a tantrum about everything!"

MILEY SINGLE – SETS SIGHTS ON BIEBER



NEW YORK, NY – Miley Cyrus has called it quits with her Aussie Hunk. She’s set her sights on a new target!

Miley Cyrus and Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth dated for over a year before calling it quits. Cyrus has been no stranger to the media, even at the ripe-old age of 17. She’s made a dramatic change from sweetheart on her Hannah Montana show to her sexier image today. Cyrus has not been afraid of pushing the envelope and needs someone who will do the same – Hemsworth wasn’t that guy.

The breakup comes just a day after news broke that Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian were dating. Cyrus and Kardashian share one thing in common – they crave the spotlight. Cyrus is in a rush to grow up and needs/wants all the publicity she can get. There is no doubt that Bieber is a magnet for media attention and Cyrus has zeroed in on the pop star.
.
“I’ve always admired Justin,” Cyrus told Weekly World News. “He is so talented and he’s just adorable. For some reason, I’ve always believed that Justin and myself were meant to be together. I’m following my heart on this one.”

We hear a restraining order in the near future.

How does Cyrus plans to accomplish tearing Bieber away from Kardashian? We don’t exactly know and she didn’t reveal her master plan. Let’s be honest, Bieber would be a fool to give up a great thing with Kardashian. But stranger things have happened.

“Kim and I are extremely happy,” Bieber told WWN. “It’s great to have the news out in the open and to just be able to relax and enjoy life.”

WWN asked Bieber about Cyrus and her latest developments.

“Miley is very talented and it’s unfortunate to hear about her breakup. She’ll be just fine. As for me, I’m a one-woman kind of guy.”

Rihanna’s presence in social media is nothing short of massive, with nearly eight million Facebook fans and more than a million Twitter followers. But the singer hasn’t really been on Twitter – until now.

Earlier today, Rihanna used her Twitter account, which had until now essentially been just a series of promotional posts, to announce that’s she “finally took over my Twitter page” and that we can expect, in her words, “no more corny label tweets.”

Her announcement tweet was promptly retweeted by, at last count, more than four hundred followers, with her name currently being mentioned on Twitter more than once per second.
The singer is enjoying chart success with her new collaboration “Love The Way You Lie” with Eminem.

Ambassador's Daughter Falls to Her Death From Manhattan Apartment



The US Ambassador to Thailand's teenage daughter fell 22 stories to her death early this morning, in what was apparently an accident during a party in Manhattan.

Police say that Nicole John, the 17 year-old daughter of Ambassador Eric John, had been partying with friends at meatpacking district club Tenjune, and then moved on to another party on the 25th floor of Herald Towers, a 34th street apartment building. Police say she'd been drinking, unsurprisingly. Details are hazy; but early this morning, a witness across the street saw her open the window and make her way onto a ledge outside the apartment. Says the NYT:

A witness who was at the party told them she took her shoes off before climbing out a window to a ledge outside. When officers discovered her body, they found a camera nearby, leading investigators to believe she might have stepped out to take a picture and might have believed there was a terrace outside the window.
She died instantly. The NYP says that by the time police arrived, the apartment had been cleaned and no alcohol was present.

Serena Williams, Is That a Nose Job!?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Serena Williams has decided to change her masculine figure and it looks like she started with her nose.

The tennis champion was spotted looking amazing at a party for Hamptons magazine at Pranna in New York the other day, which made people believe she went under the knife. She was wearing a leopard print dress and her face looked as if she has done a nose job. Or was the new make-up contouring techniques which add the illusion of more defined facial features? Hard to tell!

Anyway, we are glad that she seemed recovered after the surgery to repair cuts on her right foot she suffered.

"Williams was reportedly hurt by a broken glass at a restaurant while she was in Munich – shortly after winning her fourth Wimbledon singles title – last month and had surgery on July 15", People reported.

Lindsay Lohan on her Fashion Icon, Marilyn Monroe

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Fashion, to me, is an art of expression. It’s all about individual style, embracing who you are, and feeling good about what you wear. When you feel good about what you’re wearing, it shows. My goal is to design pieces that everyone can use to create a wardrobe that embraces who they are. I’ve been known to take scissors to some of my fave Balenciaga and Gucci designs to make them my own—cutting the collar to make a wider neck or shortening a dress—just a little something to make them unique and show my personality.

I feel so fortunate that my career allows me to travel all over the globe. I love hunting for Chanel handbags when roaming around London and Paris. I get inspiration from everywhere: shoot locations, movies, art, books, old magazines. I love vintage styling and fashion history and have studied and gained tons of ideas from the classic fashions of the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. I love to give vintage pieces a modern edge by blending rock ’n’ roll looks with feminine lace or modern accessories.

My fashion line, 6126, salutes modern women who understand that sophistication is always in vogue. Inspired by the iconic Marilyn Monroe and the timeless, confident glamour her memory represents, 6126 is named after her birth date. The confidence and sophistication Monroe exuded is something we don’t see today. It has been a dream come true to be so involved and hands-on in creating something I am so passionate about. When I designed the 6126 collection, I wanted to make pieces that any woman can mix and match to create her own sense of style—for example, mixing our sequin shorts with combat boots.

Yes, I really did try on every piece of the collection to make sure it had the right feeling and fit. It is really important that the products speak to my vision and pay respect to my icon, Marilyn Monroe.

*Shortly after commissioning this essay, but a week prior to receiving its final draft, Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating probation on two DUI cases. She will likely be released before the September 3rd premiere of her next film, Machete, in which she plays a homicidal nun.

How Many Black Models Were In The September Issues?



In fall 2007, WWD and The New York Times published pieces about the absence of black models on the fashion runways. We did our own tally of black models in fashion magazines, and came up with some shocking statistics.

At the time, we were counting black models in fashion editorials — not ads, not beauty spreads — but fashion shoots in the coveted feature well.

Here's how many black models we found in the October 2007 issues:

Marie Claire: 1, starring solo in a 6-page fashion editorial
W: 1, appearing on 1 page of a 20-page fashion editorial
Vogue: 0
Harper's Bazaar: 0
Glamour: 0
Cosmopolitan: 0
Allure: 0
Lucky: 0
Elle: 0

(That year, we also looked for black models in the November, December and January 2008 issues.)

Have things changed, three years later? Yes and no. When looking at the September issues — September being the most important issue of the year for fashion-oriented magazines — we found that a few publications actually used black models in multi-page spreads in the feature well. Others? Not one black model got her own shoot.

Katy Perry Wishes She Was Jimi Hendrix's Daughter

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The 'Teenage Dream' singer's mother Mary Hudson - who along with the star's father Keith is now a pastor - briefly dated the late guitarist in the 1970s and the 25-year-old beauty occasionally wonders how her life would have turned out if her parents had made different decisions.

She said: "Well, 'dating' is an exaggeration. 'Dated' would be right. She went on a date with him. Sometimes I say to her, 'Mom, you shouldn't have been such a prude with him - I would have been a Hendrix.

"But, yes, they both had a wild life, then they found God and felt like they needed to have a personal change, and that's how they decided to raise me. And I've turned out all right in the end - beyond the bikini girls and the whipped cream tits, and all that sort of stuff."


Katy - who is engaged to British funnyman Russell Brand - is delighted with how well her parents get on with her fiance and thinks they bonded because of the way the 'Get Him to the Greek' star has turned his life around after battling heroin and alcohol addiction.

She added to Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "Russell's come a long way from the trials and tribulations of what he went through, and hopefully he's turned around.

"My parents love him because they know about change and they work with people who want to change. They give everyone the benefit of the doubt."

An Interview With Common



This was before he became an emerging leading man whose charisma filled the screen in films such as Smokin' Aces, American Gangster, Terminator Salvation and the recent Just Wright. This was before he became a philanthropist whose mission was to inspire today's young people to boldly climb the apex of their potential. This was when he could actually walk into a radio station, and if the DJ liked his song, get his record played without the big push of a major label. This is Lonnie Rashid Lynn. From the Southside of Chicago, I might add. The man who would become known to the world as Common has been blessed with a bountiful career in an industry that feasts on the forgettable tastes of one-hit wonders.

Whether he was taking a whole sect of artists to task for taking his beloved hip-hop in a wayward direction or wearing crochet hats and chilling with beautiful women while rapping over eclectic melodies--Common has always stayed true to himself. As we rapidly move through our Lord's year of 2010, the thriving artist has two projects on the horizon: a TV series in development for AMC titled Hell on Wheels and his long-awaited next album, The Believer. The latter looks to link Common back up with his friend and frequent collaborator, Kanye West. The two artists had to take a creative break during Common's 2008 album, Universal Mind Control, because of schedule conflicts.

But in the midst of all his professional success, Common has not forgotten about his hometown of Chicago. The city has been a staple on news networks this summer because of the alarming murders of young people in the city. With his foundation, Common Ground, and help from fellow Chicago luminaries such as Dwyane Wade, Common looks to offer an outstretched hand to preserve the forsaken members of Generation Y-- before it's too late.

Taking time to talk after a performance in Columbia, MD, Common waxed poetically about a plethora of topics. But we all know that the conversation would eventually make its way back to H.E.R.

Taylor Swift Opens Up About 'Mine' Wedding Scene

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When fans check out the video for Taylor Swift's "Mine," they will be quick to notice how fetching she looks in a wedding dress. And while she only donned the garment for the clip, directed by Roman White, that scene is what had everyone buzzing long before the video even premiered.

"The video is a story of a relationship," Swift told CMT in the half-hour special that airs Friday night (August 27) at 8 p.m. ET, before the video's premiere on MTV, CMT and VH1. "It really tells the story of these two people and the things that they go through and their life together.

"The wedding scene in the video is the thing that's been talked most about because someone got a picture of it when we were shooting it,"
she continued, "but I think you'll find there's a lot in the video. That may just be one part of it."

Swift also excitedly dished on her co-star, Toby Hemingway from the upcoming "Black Swan."

"I picked him because he's in one of my favorite movies, 'Feast of Love,' " Swift said.

"In another movie that he was in, he walks onscreen for the first time, and he had a '13' on his sweatshirt, and that's my lucky number," she revealed. "So it really wasn't me that cast him. It was my lucky number."

So far, fans have been eating up the single, causing it to spike to the top of the charts since its leak and subsequent release earlier this month.

"I got on a plane, I landed in Japan, and it was No. 1 on iTunes. And when I got on the plane, I had no intention of having a single out until two weeks from now," she said. "It just ended up so wonderful, and I'm really appreciative of the fans for jumping right on it."

Swift's fans will have more to be excited about come October, when she releases her album Speak Now.

"I put everything I had into this album for the last two years, so for it to have a great little start, it really makes me happy," she said. "Making this album has been such a wonderful experience, and I'm really excited to roll out the first single and the first video."

This Relationship Just Won't Work

Leo DiCaprio Kicks "Wife" to the Curb

Leonardo DiCaprio has a steady girlfriend. So he's making sure the "wife" stays away for a while.

A California judge has granted the actor's request for a temporary restraining order against a Chicago woman who, according to court docs, believes herself to be Mrs. DiCaprio. Oh yeah, she also thinks she's carrying the Inception star's child—who also happens to be baby Jesus.

Creeptastic!

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson issued an injunction Wednesday against 41-year-old Livia Bistriceanu, barring her from coming within 100 yards of DiCaprio and his property.

In a court declaration, the Titanic heartthrob says the obsessed fan repeatedly tried to contact him "sending me unwanted and unsolicited letters in which she expressed delusional thoughts and irrational feelings, calling and showing up at business I am associated with and, most recently, locating and traveling to my private residence."

Aside from turning up at his home acting "aggressively" and "yelling and screaming," the 35-year-old star also claims the woman—who has twice been placed on psychological holds in the past—has vowed to live with him in the afterlife.

"[Bistriceanu] maintains a delusional belief that she is my wife and carrying my child, Jesus...and has threatened that we will live together forever..in His Kingdom," says DiCaprio. "I am frightened of Ms. Bistriceanu and feel that my personal safety, and the personal safety of those around me, is in jeopardy."

The judge agreed. Along with the keepaway, Goodson also instructed Bistriceanu not to possess any firearms.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 10.

This isn't the first person Leo's longing to get away from. A Canadian woman was ordered this week to stand trial on charges of assault for allegedly slashing his face open with a broken beer bottle at a Hollywood party five years ago and then going on the lam.

Robsten Barely Left The Room During Their Romantic Weekend Getaway!



 

From what we're hearing, rehearsals for Breaking Dawn's climatic Isle Esme scene are already underway - except director Bill Condon wasn't invited to give pointers!

Sources at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa are spilling that last weekend, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart rented out a private room for the weekend…and they never left it!

“Their room was very clean, no extra towels needed or room service used,” the insider at the ultra-luxe Ojai Valley Inn & Spa tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively of the Twilight couple’s August 20 & 21 jaunt.

“They were here, but never once were they seen using the spa, the pool or any of the other amenities we offer,” the staffer at the ulta-luxe Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, Calif. tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively of the Twilight couple’s August 20 & 21 jaunt.”We just needed to change the sheets and make the bed, because the bed was the only thing in the room that was used.”

Added another staffer, “We are a very exclusive place, very luxurious, and you can really take advantage of the many great services, but they didn’t. When you see celebrities here sometimes, they have certain demands, but they just blended in. They were there for privacy, which we also offer. They must have stayed strictly in their room.

We get why the gorgeous couple would need the privacy — absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all, and the two were separated for a month while Kristen, 20, started shooting her sexy new film, On the Road, in Canada. However, R-Patz, 24, finally came to visit his girl and – after the two were FINALLY spotted kissing – brought her back to California.

It sounds Kristen and Rob are practicing for 24-7 togetherness — after all, when the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 1 & 2 starts shooting in November, they’ll be together nonstop for six straight months! Not that either Rob or Kristen seem to mind


Rob thanks you for your time ect.

Rachel Maddow talks marriage, not to me unfortunately

Rachel's Accidental War



She didn’t want to talk about the mosque. But Fox baited her into it. The MSNBC host banters with Lloyd Grove about “fake” news, wearing glasses on air, and whether she wants to get married.

For a cable news host intent on luring eyeballs to her prime-time show, Rachel Maddow aspires to an impossibly high standard. Her contrarian production values—athwart competing outlets dominated by ranting heads, cheeseball populism, and celebrity bathos—are civility and good taste.

Until Monday night, when she could no longer resist the barbarian hordes, she’d banned the so-called ground zero mosque controversy from her 9 p.m. program, notwithstanding that it has been Topic A for the past couple of weeks in nearly every other day part of her second-place network, MSNBC.

I’d rather not cover it,” she tells me, never mind that President Obama has entered the fray. “It’s just one of those fake, non-controversial things that has been ginned up into a controversy for a political purpose. Participating in the discussion of this, as a political matter, is playing right into the hands of the people who ginned this up.” (By “the people who ginned this up,” she means Fox News and its allies—about which more in a moment.) “Adding to the volume—in both senses of the word—of the coverage, um, grosses me out a little bit,” she says.

It's a poster with Naomi Watts on it, that justifies your life

New Fair Game Poster – Starring Naomi Watts & Sean Penn



Apple – not the round edible fruit but the people who are known for making iPods, Macs and iPads have released a new poster for Doug Liman’s upcoming political drama Fair Game. Fair Game is based on the true story of Valerie Plame, a covert officer in the CIA who is placed in mortal danger when her cover is blown. The film stars Naomi Watts as Plame and Sean Penn as her husband Joe Wilson. I like the look of this movie, it looks like a taut and intelligent thriller. Fair Game is in US cinemas November 5th, not sure of a UK release date at the moment. You can check the trailer out here.

A suspense-filled glimpse into the dark corridors of political power, FAIR GAME is a riveting action-thriller based on the autobiography of real-life undercover CIA operative VALERIE PLAME (Naomi Watts), whose career was destroyed and marriage strained to its limits when her covert identity was exposed by a politically motivated press leak. As a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie’s husband, diplomat JOE WILSON (Sean Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joe writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy. Fair Game will hit theaters on Friday, November 5th, 2010 in limited release.

Toy Story 3 passes historic $1 billion mark

It’s always heartwarming to hear that a giant corporation who released an established property successfully recouped on its investment, but you may want to grab some tissues for the news that Disney’s Toy Story 3 has just passed the $1 billion mark, which should absolutely melt your insides. That makes it the only animated film and only the seventh film overall to to achieve that milestone. Even more impressive: This is Disney’s second $1 billion-grossing film after Alice In Wonderland, making it the first-ever studio to get two in one year—and all it took was charging inflated 3-D ticket prices. Something tells us that, somewhere, James Cameron just made a derisive snorting noise.



All I have to say is YAY! Such a good movie.

SOMEONE ALERT & SAVE MY GUIDETTE GODDESS ASAP!!!!!!!

SNOOKI'S NEW MAN ABUSES WOMEN!!



The Jersey Shore’s Snooki may want to do some background checking on her boyfriend Jeff Miranda.

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that at least one of Miranda’s ex-girlfriends was granted a temporary restraining order against him for beating her and threatening her life.

READ THE RESTRAINING ORDER HERE

RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained the temporary order of protection filed in April, 2009, in Ocean County, NJ, by Miranda’s ex-girlfriend, Rebecca Hansen. The couple dated for six months from 2008-2009. According to Hansen, Miranda was romantic and charming when she first met him, but he soon became a violent monster.

According to the court document, Miranda “threatened to burn plaintiff’s house down while she slept, threatened to cut plaintiff’s brakes, defendant threatened plaintiff by stating ‘if you cheat on me or break up with me you have a hole dug for you already.’”

The order also states that Miranda choked and punched Hansen in the stomach, and over New Year’s 2009, pulled her by the hair and called her a slut, c*nt, wh*re, and b****.

Hansen says that when she tried to get her things from his house, Miranda grabbed her by her arms and held her down on the bed screaming “I love you, why are you doing this to me?”

The final straw came when Hansen says Miranda pulled a shotgun on her after she refused to have sex with him.

“Jeff is nothing but scum,” Hansen told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “He claims he is in the mafia. He’s threatened two of my friends’ lives and my own.”

When Miranda suddenly popped up on The Jersey Shore as Snooki’s new boyfriend, Hansen said she was surprised but not shocked. According to Hansen, Miranda used to talk about trying out for the show.

“He tried everything to be famous when we were together,” she said, “Five months ago, he tried to get back together with me and told me that he was going to audition for Jersey Shore, just to be on the show and get his name out there. He’s nothing but a sick, twisted person, out for nothing but fame.”

Lady Gaga: Drugs Inspired Me

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Lady Gaga caused a stir when she admitted to Vanity Fair that she occasionally does cocaine, and now she defends her drug use to Q magazine on the basis that it helped her creatively.

"[Using drugs] I really figured out the art I wanted to make and was inspired," she said. "Some people find inspiration in dark places. I guess I'm one of them. What always made me different is that if I was doing drugs I was also making music. I wasn't just doing drugs."

Though drugs helped her get her start, now Gaga only does cocaine "a couple of times a year," she told Vanity Fair.

"Once you open those doors they're open for ever," she said in the Q interview. "People who say they need [drugs] to be creative are full of s**t. I'm not some chick on the road getting high and f***ed up every night. I wake up, drink coffee and get on the phone to talk about the creative direction of the next video."

Janice Dickinson has slammed Gaga for glamorizing drugs to her young fans.

"As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous occasional use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience," she told Life & Style. "She is a f**king idiot. The way she mentioned cocaine, I think she should really get spanked. You can damage and hurt kids. I'm appalled."

Michael Jackson's Kids Get Schooled



Two of Michael Jackson's kids have taken a big step -- leaving homeschool for one of the most exclusive private schools in the country.

TMZ has learned 13-year-old Prince and 12-year-old Paris started at The Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday.   

Family sources tell TMZ ... Prince wanted to go to Buckley to have "a social experience."  Initially, Paris was reluctant but changed her mind in a big way.

As for 8-year-old Blanket -- he's still going to be homeschooled. Katherine Jackson feels he's too young to venture out.

Among the alums -- Matthew Perry, Alyssa Milano, Nicole Richie, Nicollette Sheridan and Laura Dern.

By the way, some other grads even went on to do sex tapes and became famous -- Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

Fan tells about her encounter with Joe:
From Brittany: When I met Joe, I gave him my 'Struck and White: The Elements of Style' grammar book, and he just goes, ''ha. ha. ha. funny.' Hopefully, he wasn't actually offended because he was definitely sarcastic, but the book actually teaches very well, so hopefully he'll attempt to learn proper grammar soon.

"Perhaps we've found the secret to Lea Michele's admirably thin figure?

The 23-year-old Glee beauty was spotted taking a bike ride in Los Angeles on Thursday after filming an episode of her hit series—and, judging from the million-watt grin on her face, she was enjoying herself immensely.

Kudos to Michele for choosing a method of transportation that's both healthy and environmentally responsible. Besides, Glee cast members don't seem to do so well where cars are concerned."

USA Gov't Asks M.I.A. for Bullshit so M.I.A. Gets Clinton Involved

Shoot me now
M.I.A. has enlisted the help of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her ongoing visa battles, after authorities refused the rapper’s mother permission to visit her newborn grandson.

The Paper Planes hitmaker has clashed with immigration officials over her own status after courting controversy with her comments about political unrest in Sri Lanka.

Now the star’s family has been dragged into the visa dispute — her mother Kala tried to visit M.I.A.’s baby son Ikhyd but was blocked from entering America, prompting the rapper to call on Clinton for help.

She tells Q magazine, They've singled me out. They said my mom would be fine if I just apologized to the Sri Lankan embassy. Which I'm not gonna do. It's not like she actually knows how to make a f**king bomb, strap it on and walk into Tesco's (supermarket)… We've had Hillary Clinton involved. Hills got back (to us) and she was like, ‘You know, it happens…’

M.I.A. - REBEL YELL (Q Spread)

Even if the Sri Lankan government didn't kill me, I'd get killed by someone else.
Q Spread + Cringeworthy drop cap usage
Controversial pop star M.I.A has politics on the agenda (as always) and marrying her super rich husband to be.

This is stupid. Why would the US gov't need her to, let alone want her to, apologise to the Sri Lankan gov't. What has she done that needs an apology except voice her opinion on the civil war. And wtf.. even after all the human rights violations that's trying to be covered up.
