Your current release strategy is very idiosyncratic. Are you the pioneer of a new system?

It's organically based in the sense that I'm somewhere between adhering to the rules of the artist heart, which is, "I wanna do what I wanna do when I wanna do it," and then the marketplace, which is moving very fast and you have to be adaptable. You cannot plan for two years.

From the screech of chalk on a blackboard to crummy cafeteria food and uncomfortable metal desks, nothing inspires nostalgia (and/or fear and loathing) like the signifiers of high school days gone by -- which is precisely why so many artists have shot music videos in these hallowed halls of learning. So here's our guide to the top 10 school videos -- just don't watch 'em during Spanish class or you'll get detention.

Paris Hilton ARRESTED on cocaine charge in Las Vegas‎

LAS VEGAS — Police say Paris Hilton has been arrested for possession of cocaine after officers stopped the car she was in on a Las Vegas street late Friday night. Public Information officer Marcus Martin says Hilton was booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Saturday morning on a charge of possession of cocaine.

Police say she was in a car driven by a friend that was stopped when officers noticed what they suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from it. During the stop officers found what appeared to be a controlled substance on Hilton and tests showed that it was cocaine. It is not clear how much of the drug was found.

Police watch commander Lt. Wayne Holman said Hilton was still being held around 2 A.M. Saturday but would probably be freed on her own recognizance later in the morning.

On not being taking seriously
Rock stars have always been young - Bob Dylan was 17 when he started - but I guess Disney killed that. There are a lot of young Disney artists who are very bubblegum and cherry and happen to the same age so they take away from me.

On the kind of record people expected her to put out
That was never a choice for me. It wasn't, 'Should I go pop or should I go rock? I'm a rock chick living in a pop world. Rock says, 'f**k you' and pop says, 'I like to dress'. I wouldn't wanna put out a pop record. It's pointless and it's not my style.

On comparisons between her and Miley
I listen to Oasis and the Beatles, so I don't know what Miley Cyrus is singing about. But apparently we're the same age so people think we're the same or something? Oh and apparently I'm a worse role model than her. Well, I probably am!


Sneak peek of Jwoww attacking Sammi on next week's Jersey Shore

So in case you haven't been watching the dirty shore, this is an exclusive clip of next weeks Jersey Shore that shows Jwoww attacking Sammi after she voices her opinion. Last week's episode showed Jwoww and Snooki writing an anonymous letter to Sammi to let her know Ron has been cheating on her. Sammi still has hard feelings over this because she feels that was cowardly of Jwoww and thats what sparks this fight.

Check out the awesome sneak peak of these two Guiddettes throwing down! Enjoy.


BTW is it just me or is Jwoww contradicting herself when she references "growing balls," wasn't she the one last week that couldn't even tell Sammi to her face that Ron was cheating? Jus Sayin.

Hunt also confirmed the recommissions of Sherlock and Luther for BBC One. Following a highly successful launch with over 7.5m viewers watching the first episode in July 2010, Sherlock returns for three new 90-minute episodes in Autumn 2011, while Luther comes back with two, two-hour specials.

Hunt says: "Sherlock was the hit of the Summer. Luther the most memorable new detective on the block. I am delighted they will both be returning to BBC One."

Talking of the Sherlock recommission, co-creators, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, say: "We've been overwhelmed by the warmth of response to our new Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and can't wait to take them on three new adventures next year. There'll be baffling new puzzles, old friends and new enemies – whether on two, or four legs. And we might well be seeing the cold master of logic and reason unexpectedly falling. But in love? Or over a precipice? Who can tell?"

  • drbat interview with Denis O’ Hare

You’ve seen out actor Denis O’Hare in dozens of films, television shows and, if you’re a theatregoer, on Broadway. He won a Tony award for his performance in the sexually charged Take Me Out, and has gone on to appear in Assassins, Cabaret and other shows. O’Hare, who hails from the Detroit area, got his first break in theatre here in Chicago as the lead in the critically lauded Hauptmann in 1992 (after graduating from Northwestern). Up to now O’Hare has been mostly familiar to larger audiences for a series of memorable supporting parts—usually as the bad guy—in a series of high-profile movies (Michael Clayton, Milk, Changeling, etc.). However, with his role as Russell Edgington, the King of Mississippi, a 2,800-year-old vampire with the 700-year-old boytoy boyfriend Talbot on HBO’s True Blood, O’Hare’s visibility has memorably increased. The actor, who lives in New York, discussed with Windy City Times his role on True Blood, the importance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in his coming-out, being an openly gay actor in the business and more.

Paris Hilton: It Wasn't Me!

Paris Hilton wouldn't be caught dead with the purse that contained cocaine -- and that will be her defense in her Las Vegas cocaine arrest ... TMZ has learned.

Sources who have spoken with Paris since her arrest on the Vegas strip late last night tell TMZ ... she insists the purse -- with what we're told contained a small amount of cocaine -- was not hers.

As we first reported, she's hired powerful Vegas lawyer David Chesnoff to handle the case ... and he already got her sprung without posting bail.

You'll recall Paris used the "the-drugs-weren't-mine" defense in South Africa last month, after being detained by police. No charges were filed against her.

As for the Vegas case, as far as we know she was the only woman in the car that was stopped, but she had been partying at a club prior to the bust where other women and purses were present.

John Cusack is The Jingle Man

Cusack to star in 'The Raven'
Thesp will portray Edgar Allen Poe in biopic

John Cusack will star as Edgar Allen Poe in "The Raven" for Intrepid Pictures and FilmNation. Cusack disclosed his attachment via a Twitter post Friday. Shooting is scheduled for late fall in Serbia with James McTeigue ("V for Vendetta") directing.

Intrepid Principals Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans will produce with FilmNation's Aaron Ryder, who brought the script to Intrepid.

Project's been in development for several years at FilmNation and Endgame, which is no longer involved. "The Raven" is based on a Hannah Shakespeare/Ben Livingston script set in the last five days of Poe's life, when a serial killer is running around Baltimore using Poe's stories as the backdrops to his killings. Poe and a young detective have a ticking clock to outsmart the killer before he kills again.

FilmNation will sell international rights, and Intrepid is in conversations with domestic distributors. Poe's best known work is the poem "The Raven," published in 1845. He died four years later at the age of 40 in Baltimore.

Cusack was seen most recently in MGM's "Hot Tub Time Machine."

Intrepid co-produced "The Strangers" and is co-producing and co-financing "The Cold Light of Day" with Summit, commencing principal photography Sept. 6 in Spain.

Two-year-old FilmNation is a foreign-sales and production banner and is in production on "The House at the End of the Street" with Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot and Elisabeth Shue.

Kelly Rowland names new album

After much deliberation, Dance diva Kelly Rowland has reportedly selected the title of her 3rd studio album. That Grape Juice has learned that (as at writing) the singer’s album’s title is…

‘One Woman Show’

The album, which is preceded by singles ‘Commander’ and ‘Forever And A Day’ in the UK (and ‘Grown Woman’ and ‘Rose Coloured Glasses’ in the US) is to hit stores this ‘Fall’.


I hate that she's releasing two versions of this. Is she stupid? She's STILL flopping in America.

"Shameless" & "Skins" Couple Slammed By Victim's Parent Due To Murder Attempt

Shameless" star Elliott Tittensor, 20, who deliberately rammed an 18-year-old fan with his BMW, as girlfriend "Skins" star, Kaya Scodelario, 18, callously sat in the passenger seat, has been slammed by the teen's mother.

Lulu Taddei, the mother of severely injured 18-year-old, Oliver Flint, who was on life support, stated from his hospital room, "The eye specialist has said he has lost the sight of his left eye and the vision in his right is very blurred and getting worse because of nerve damage. How can anyone do such a thing? It was inhuman. For a few hours we honestly believed he was going to die. Then when he came round I had to break the news to him about his eyes. He is struggling to come to terms with it and keeps asking me, 'Will I be able to see again Mum?' We are just praying that his remaining eye improves."

Chris Brown not part of Usher tour

Chris Brown will not tour with Usher because of financial reasons, and not because Usher believes Brown is still tainted, his camp claims.

Rumors have swirled that the two may team up on stage during Usher's upcoming tour after the R&B crooners performed together in July at Jamaica's Reggae SumFest concert. But both camps now say that's not happening.

Music insiders say the reason is that Brown already had a tour deal in place with Live Nation and it's impossible for him to extract himself from that deal. Live Nation would not grant a waiver to loan Brown out for the Usher tour.

Film - The Old Guard

Year's Most Disgusting Film Pulled from Festival Over Controversial Content

This will certainly rub some people the wrong way and clearly already has. According to The Guardian, Westminster council gave a thumbs down to A Serbian Film deeming its violent sexual imagery unacceptable. Director Srdjan Spasojevic isn't pleased not only because he calls the material in question justified, but because the ruling means his film won't be shown during London's FrightFest film festival on Sunday as planned.

A Serbian Film is about Milos, a retired porn star who's lured back into the industry out of desperation to support his wife and son. What begins as a standard day on the job turns into a twisted version of the industry Milos once knew when children are thrown into the equation. But that's not even the worst of it. All you've got to do is head over to the film's Wikipedia page to get a spoiler-packed taste of the British Board of Film Classification's issue with the production.

Marvel WILL Cast Asian American for Nico Minoru for Runaways movie

In response to an online campaign, Marvel Studios has changed its casting call announcement for the character of Nico Minoru in its upcoming production of Runaways. In the original casting call announcement, no mention of Nico’s ethnicity was included—a default setting, which is generally used to designate parts for white actors. In contrast, the casting breakdown for Runaways character Alex Wilder, which was issued at the same time, clearly indicated that the character was African American., an online organization founded in the wake of Paramount’s decision to cast a non-Asian as the lead in the big screen adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and members of the Asian American community complained to Marvel Studios about the casting notice for the character of Nico, and Marvel responded with a message to the online site: “To address your concern over casting for the role of Nico, as we do with all of our films, we intend to stay true to the legacy and story of the comic when casting these parts. Thus, our goal is to cast an Asian American actress as depicted in the comic series and the casting notice will be adjusted accordingly.”

The amended casting announcement now reads: “Uniquely beautiful, nurturing but guarded Female, Asian-American, must play 16-18. Must be at least 16 by January 2011.” The casting notice confirms the previously reported January start of production on the film (see “Marvel’s Runaways Set for Production”).


EDIT: To see that they edited the casting calls, go here!

HELL TO THE YEAH. So who would you cast as Nico, ONTD?

Girls Aloud round-up

Katy Perry thinks Cheryl Cole will leave Britain for the US X Factor

KATY Perry thinks that Cheryl Cole could leave the UK for a starring role on the upcoming U.S. version of the show.

Simon Cowell is hoping to launch the American version of the hit show in 2011.

Katy Perry, whose fiance is British comedian Russell Brand, stood in for Dannii Minogue at the Dublin auditions for the X Factor, which will be shown on TV tonight.

Katy says that she couldn't imagine Simon doing without his right-hand woman Cheryl Cole for the American show.

“Simon absolutely adores her,” Katy said. “I’m convinced he’ll be taking her to LA. She has all the star qualities.”

It’s been speculated that Cheryl will move to Los Angeles after this early next year once the current series of the X Factor is finished. She has been drawing on her experiences as a part of Girls Aloud to mentor contestants.

Katy also revealed that she has been flirting with Simon: "He can act all mean and moody with me, but deep down inside, I know he loves me."

She also talked about her love for retro British bands, which she listened to in her childhood. "I discovered bands like Queen and The Beach Boys and of course The Beatles, and I just found out that the world maybe wasn't so flat," she said.

Xtincta can't sell albums OR homes

Ai-yi-yi. What a bad news week for home sellers, including ones with multiple Grammy awards sitting on the mantels of homes they can't sell. Pop star Christina Aguilera dropped the price of a home she owns in the Hollywood Hills yet again. The property was first listed in 2008 at $7.995 million and has been leapfrogging south ever since.

Another $255,000 was shaved off this week, bringing the listing price down to $5.995 million.

With the news this week that existing home sales were down by a whopping 27 percent and new home sales nothing to write home about either, sellers at all levels of the market are feeling the pinch. It is not known whether Aguilera rented the home out during the past two years or if she's simply been writing the mortgage checks with increasing pain each month as the home's value slips. Drew Fenton, the Hilton & Hyland listing agent, declined to comment.

At the time she originally listed it, singer-songwriter Aguilera had recently given birth to a son and had just paid $11.5 million for a more "family-friendly" property in Beverly Hills -- one that had belonged to Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, of all family-friendly people.

Aguilera's Hollywood Hills home that just got a price haircut (which actually feels like a modest trim and leave the sideburns long please), has a gym, pool and a 12-person spa with a fireplace. The midcentury home has a 1,200-square-foot master bedroom suite. Total square footage: 6,500. There is also a professional screening room with seating for 18.

Aguilera probably shouldn't feel too badly, though. A local agent with Teles Properties produced a neighborhood-by-neighborhood report for greater Los Angeles, and in the Sunset Strip-Hollywood Hills West area where Aguilera's home is located, the median price has dropped almost 20 percent from July 2009 to July 2010. The good news is that inventory is down, so competition will be less intense.

Hard to know though whether it's because sales are up or sellers are retreating.

So can Britney, Madonna and Girls Aloud actually sing?

They all sound more-or-less the same, but beneath all the studio trickery, can our favourite stars really sing?

Sound engineer Ciaran Byrne reckons 'yes'. "Ultimately, you can't fix everything with Auto-Tunes," he says. "If someone hadn't a note in their head, no amount of studio trickery would make them sound good. So the likes of Britney Spears can all sing to some extent; no record company will invest that much in someone who just looks the part."

Broadcaster Nadine O'Regan says: "Nadine Coyle can sing beautifully. And I find Girls Aloud impressive because they often sing live. You might say, 'oh big deal', isn't that what singers are supposed to do? But when you're doing as much promotional work as they do, it'd be easier to lip-synch. Britney can sing, too -- but singing is the last thing she does these days."

And journalist Michael Hann puts it all in perspective by saying: "Does it matter? The records sound great -- that's what counts."

Emmy Predictions Hot and Ready to Serve

Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad

It has taken me too long to turn our focus to the Emmys, which are being held this Sunday. I find the Emmys lacking in suspense because, truthfully, does anyone care who wins? Not really. My friend Tom O’Neil is on the case, though, and you can find a plethora of Emmy coverage over at Gold Derby. He also told me that the reason to tune in is to see Conan O’Brien finally win and stick it to NBC. But you see, I’ve long since stopped caring about Conan O’Brien. No offense, but it just doesn’t have the same urgency as, oh, say Inception maybe getting a Best Director nomination or Blue Valentine making the cut for Best Picture. The Oscars are all about the drama. The Emmys? Not so much.

But here we are, nonetheless, the day before the Emmys! Are you excited yet? The Emmys! Television’s biggest night! Let’s try to do some predicting shall we?

A lesson that I needed to learn

Cheryl Cole's favourite designers are the real winners of X Factor

From a manufactured pop star in combat trousers to a couturier's dream, Cheryl Cole has transformed herself into a one-woman fashion show and given unknown British designers a taste of primetime stardom

Since it first aired in 2004, audiences have primarily been drawn to The X Factor for the entertainment value to be had from watching the most disastrous auditions: the tone-deaf no-hoper who performs an acoustic version of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean accompanied on the spoons, for instance, or the mother-and-daughter duo with an inexplicable faith in their non-existent singing abilities. Either that, or the show's 11 million viewers have simply been tuning in to monitor the fluctuating height of Simon Cowell's trouser waistband.

But this year, there is another, far more pressing reason to watch. It has nothing to do with the singing and everything to do with what Cheryl Cole is wearing. Since becoming an X Factor judge in 2008, the 27-year-old has transformed herself from a Geordie pop star with unexceptional clothes and an unfortunate reputation for punching lavatory attendants into a fashion sophisticate whose sartorial choices on Saturday night prime-time can make or break a designer's reputation.

"She's become a fashion icon," says Dolly Jones, the editor of which runs a regularly updated gallery of Cole's X Factor looks. "What she wears has a huge impact on the buying public because people relate to her. She's incredibly good looking but you also get the impression that she really enjoys fashion. There's a thrill about it for her, she doesn't look wooden – she looks like she's enjoying the attention the clothes bring."

And Did Degrassi's Riskiest Move Payoff?

The Degrassi franchise has always been one to break ground, tell controversial stories and still stay popular, despite doing things that many other series are terrified to do.

Just imagine if America’s Got Talent did that — I’d be a happy camper!

But why would Degrassi mess with its tried-and-true formula, considering it’s only getting better in its 10th season? But why wouldn’t they? Since Degrassi is known for taking big, bold risks, a move like this is only keeping with the Canadian series’ history.

Michael Lohan May Team Up With Mel Gibson’s Father To Launch Rehab Center

Rumors of Lindsay Lohan moving to New York to live closer to her mother, Dina, seem to have died, but there is at least one Lohan on the move – her father, Michael.

Michael Lohan has said he is moving to Los Angeles where he is planning to open a new drug and alcohol rehab center.

The announcement comes just days after daughter Lindsay was released from her court-ordered rehab stint in Los Angeles.

But wait, it gets better.

Access Hollywood has learned through a source that Michael won’t be launching the new project alone. In fact, he is said to be in final talks to team up with another fellow father-to-a-star – Mel Gibson’s father, Hutton. Much like son Mel, Hutton has his own church. Hutton is best known for his comments in 2004, where he called the Holocaust “fiction.”

When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for Mel said they didn’t know anything about the possible partnership.

Lawyer Condemns Michael Jackson Auction

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Late King of Pop Michael Jackson's lawyer has slammed the administrators of his property for selling his children's legacy. Crystal-studded gloves and socks, a set of Jackson 5 costumes and other items from the Thriller star's career were displayed in Tokyo ahead of their auction in Macau later this year, reports the Daily Star.

Jackon's family lawyer Brian Oxman said: "This is an outrage. Back in May of 2009 there was to be an auction. Michael demanded it was stopped."

"He never wanted this material to be auctioned," he added. Oxman claimed that estate owners Colony Capital first put up the goods for auction. Before his death, Jackson managed to prevent the sale but when he died they still had all the property. Oxman said: "As soon as Michael Jackson was dead, Julien's Auctions was negotiating again with estate representatives.

"That was the very auction that Michael Jackson paid a lot of money to stop. He would be furious. He would be turning in his grave. This was to be his legacy to his children, and the legacy of his children is being sold off," he added.
