The Walking Dead Wins Season Two…Before the first one even airs

The story of Frank Darabont’s attempt to bring Robert Kirkman’s beloved zombie comic The Walking Dead to TV screens has, in the last year or so, been filled largely with good news. It got picked up by US network AMC (and FX over here), went quickly from pilot to first series commission (AMC’s usual six episode kick-off), and has been building some healthy buzz, particularly after the trailer was shown at Comic-Con and arrived online. Now there’s another milestone passed as the show has won a second season before a frame of the first has even aired.

Fangoria reports that the show has been officially renewed, with filming set to start in February next year. And in keeping with AMC’s usual schedule, the next season will be 13 episodes.

Austrian Anti-Muslim Game Stokes Outrage



A right-wing Austrian political party's published a flash game in which the countryside is overrun with minarets and mosques and players must stop their construction. Because nationalism and xenophobia's so much more fun when it's in the German language!

Moschee Baba ("Bye-Bye Mosque") is a minute-long, shooting-gallery type game in which a stop sign is clicked on a minaret, mosque, or muezzin (the guys who sound the morning calls to prayer). It's a political ad for the Freedom Party in the Styrian province; regional elections are coming at the end of the month.

No one's killed and nothing's destroyed in the game, but its tone is pretty hateful and paranoid and it's pissed off political opponents but good. Social Democrats, the Green Party and, of course, the Muslim community have demanded the game's removal and an investigation for "incitement."


The game is, of course, a gross caricature of the reality of the situation in Austria. Only four mosques with a visible minaret exist in the country. None are in Styria, whose population is 1.2 percent Muslim.

After the game ends, it serves players with a push poll, asking if there should be a ban on minaret construction, wearing of burqas, niqabs or other Islamic garments, and if Muslims should sign some oath accepting Austrian law's primacy over the Koran. Fun stuff. SOURCE

Teen Mom's Maci: My New Man Isn't "Scared" That I Have a Kid

Shortly after Maci Bookout ended her bitter relationship with Ryan Edwards, father to her son Bentley, 22 months, last December, the Teen Mom star had a sweet surprise: an unexpected new love with an old childhood pal, Kyle King.

Did Kyle blanche at the prospect of romancing a single, 19-year-old mom? Not at all, Bookout says in the new Us Weekly, out now. "He was very understanding of the whole situation," the Chattanooga, Tenn. native tells Us of her motherly duties. "Since he wasn't scared, he put me at ease."

Are gender stereotypes still present in indie music?

 
 

 
Indie likes to pride itself on having an enlightened sense of gender relations. But that doesn't stop female audience members from being groped at shows.

Without a doubt, indie has a more enlightened sense of gender relations than many musical genres. You can see this in a number of areas, such as pioneering co-ed bands (Pixies, Arcade Fire, Lush, the White Stripes, Elastica, My Bloody Valentine, Quasi, Slowdive, the xx , Autolux, Beach House, the Kills, feel free to carry on) and the blending of gender-coded imagery where androgyny has been consistent in clothing and physicality. Blur didn't write "Girls who are boys, who like boys to be girls, who do boys like they're girls, who do girls like they're boys" for nothing. Androgyny can even been seen in the common use of falsetto by male singers as a higher register is usually associated with femininity. The blending of gender imagery is common in rock and pop, but the central value of equality, even between performers and audience has made humanist gender relations the ideal in indie.

Daddy Lohan Stalks Lindsay...

Michael Lohan just moved into his new L.A apartment -- and he tells us, the place has two major perks ... 1) it's right by the water ... and 2) it's only 11 miles from his newly-sober daughter.


 


According to Michael, his new crib is right by the Santa Monica Pier -- just a short drive from Lindsay's West Hollywood apartment ... depending on traffic. 

Lindsay has previously stated that she wants absolutely nothing to do with Mike ... but it seems daddy just won't take no for an answer.

Black Swan: Early Reviews

Resembling a “Red Shoes” on acid, “Black Swan” takes the idea of giving one’s all for art to a morbid extreme...With Natalie Portman, in the demanding leading role, equaling her director in unquestioned commitment, the central issue for the viewer is how far one is willing to follow the film down the road to oblivion for art’s sake. - Todd McCarthy, IndieWire

T.I. and His Wife Arrested for Possession

The honeymoon is over for T.I. and his wife Tameka Cottle because TMZ has learned they were arrested tonight for alleged possession of a controlled substance.


 

Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies pulled over the multi-platinum selling rapper and his wife in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:30PM. Deputies say they smelled marijuana, and after searching the vehicle they arrested T.I. and Tameka.

The couple just got married on July 30 in Miami, and T.I. -- real name Clifford Harris Jr. -- is on probation after doing seven months in prison on federal weapons charges.

We're told T.I. and Tameka are in custody right now. Bail amount is $10,000.

Battle of the Jessica's



What's the best part of September? The September issues, obviously. (Pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks are a close second...) Jessica Szohr scored herself the cover of Nylon Magazine this month, and to celebrate, Nylon Editors Marvin Scott Jarret and Jaclynn Jarrett threw her a little celebrity filled party at SL.-

Jessica Stam, Jared Leto (random?) and Wilmer Valderrama (double random?) were all there, dancing, drinking, and eating the tower of cupcakes presented to Szohr earlier in the night. Ed Westwick was there to support his on-again girlfriend, and ended up stealing a little bit of the thunder himself...

@NylonMag Happiness is Ed Westwick dancing to Phoenix at a NYLON party.

Also, Leighton Meester was there, and if we were gossipy we could read into the fact that she missed out on Blake Lively's birthday party at Public last week, but was on hand to celebrate Jessica's cover issue, possibly lending truth to the Lively v. Meester rumors. Lucikly, we aren't gossipy like that...

Bryan Cranston to host Saturday Night Live



The third time really WAS the charm for Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston.

The actor who just scored his third-consecutive Emmy for lead actor in a drama for "Breaking Bad" announced on ESPN Radio's Mason & Ireland show that he would be a guest host on "Saturday Night Live" Oct. 2. It will be the first appearance on the sketch comedy series for the actor, who starred as the buffoonish father in "Malcolm In The Middle" before his stint on the hit AMC drama, where he plays a chemistry teacher who gradually becomes a drug dealer.

"I'm so thrilled and excited," Cranston said.

Vince Gilligan, the creator of "Breaking Bad," said in an interview earlier this year that he was mystified that Cranston, whom he called a "courageous actor," had never been asked to host "SNL": If Bryan "hosted 'Saturday Night Live,' he would hit it out of the park."

Cranston said in a corresponding interview that he was philosophical about not being asked to host "Saturday Night Live": "Would I like to host 'Saturday Night Live?' Hell, yes, I'd love to. But it's not going to have a big impact on my life if it doesn't happen."

Lindsay Lohan -- Dangerous Liaisons

Lindsay Lohan -- a woman who has been to rehab for alcohol abuse -- is flirting with known danger, and here are the pictures to prove it.

Lindsay was photographed Saturday at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood ... sitting at a table that appears to be littered with a few unknown beverages.

By day, hangin' poolside at her apartment is not a problem -- but by night ... the bar scene could be a very dangerous risk.



That can be a root beer bottle for all we know but if it is alcohol... Lindsay, pull your head out of your ass!

Kristen Stewart’s ‘Breaking Dawn’ Birthing Scene

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She’s grown so much as an actress over the past few years, and Kristen Stewart will have yet another new challenge ahead of her when her “Breaking Dawn” character Bella Swan gives birth.

According to a report, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and director Bill Condon aren’t pulling any punches when it comes to depicting the book onscreen.

During a recent interview, Rosenberg explained, "We're working on it. And we're working on it to be as intense as it is in the book."

"I don't think it's about the amount of blood you show. It's on their faces. It's all from Bella's point of view when you're seeing what's going [on]. It should feel visceral. I think it's going to be pretty intense."

T.I. and His Wife -- Handcuffed and Busted; Remain Sexy and Busted, Respectively


TMZ has obtained photos of rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle in police custody on Sunset Blvd. last night ... after they were each arrested for allegedly possessing a controlled substance.

0902_TI_arrested_cop_car

T.I. was placed into a squad car with an unknown male.

0902_tameka_large_EX_01

"Tiny" was taken to a separate squad car -- both were transported to a local Sheriff's station.

As we first reported, cops pulled over T.I.'s ultra-expensive Maybach on Sunset Blvd around 10:18 PM for a traffic violation and then smelled marijuana. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, cops say they found a controlled substance -- we're told it was not cocaine. The class of the controlled substance that was found includes methamphetamines and ecstasy.

Both were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.



They were released on $10,000 bail.

As we previously reported, T.I. was released from federal prison back in December -- where he served 7 months behind bars for illegally possessing machine guns and silencers.

Law enforcement confirms ... T.I. is still on probation from the gun conviction, which means last night's arrest could qualify as a violation of his probation ... and he could be sent back to prison.

Passion Pit Announce New Album

OKAY so for some reason tinypic is circulating through random images of movie posters and porn in the place of the one I actually uploaded, so I'm removing the photo for the time being and will put a new one up when I figure out what the hell is going on.

Their first album may have started off as a Valentine’s Day gift for singer Michael Angelakos’ girlfriend, but Passion Pit have announced that a treat for the rest of us is scheduled to drop this spring.

Angelakos spoke with the NME recently at the V Festival in the UK and revealed that a new album is in the works. “It’s gonna be a really fantastic, exciting, beautiful, gorgeous record,” he said. “An absolutely beautiful record. I’m so excited.”

Angelakos added that there may be several editions of the album and that the initial release will coincide with the beginning of spring. “We’re aligning it with the Farmers’ Almanac in America, so when the buds start to bloom is when we kind of wanna release it, like when life starts to come back,” he said. “We wanna be pretty literal.”

Watch Angelakos’ full interview with the NME here:

Miss Jackson would love to work with Gaga

Janet Jackson has previously spoken about her friendship with Lady Gaga, and now it seems she is hoping to collaborate with the "Alejandro" singer.

In a recent interview with the U.K.'s Metro, Jackson says that she had her eye on Gaga even before she became famous.

"What I love about Gaga is her story, where she came from," Jackson said in the interview. "Before she made it, before anyone knew who she was, I knew who she was and, to see her finally make it, I was so happy . . . if we were to work together that would be cool."

Earlier this year, Jackson also revealed that, in her opinion, Lady Gaga is not only a great artist but also a great person.

"I really love Gaga, yeah, and she's a sweetheart. It's not always the case when you meet them. You can enjoy their work, but it's not always ... so pleasant when you get to know their personality, and she truly is a sweetheart," she told MTV.

Jackson also offered a few words of wisdom to Gaga, adding: "She works so hard, and I told her, I think she needs to slow down just a little bit, take some time out for herself."

Alan Cumming: Well Lucas, I too am looking forward to Burlesque. I saw a few of the big numbers being shot and they sounded and looked really amazing. I don't know about the soundtrack in terms of numbers of songs, and I am sure that since the film is still being edited there will not be a final list available yet. But I do remember a crazy good power ballad that Christina sings in the middle of the film that will rock your socks off. Now say five Hail Marys and be good boy.

'Not one designer in town will loan me a dress': Mad Men's curvy Christina Hendricks hits back at size zero sample clothes



She may have been named sexiest woman alive but it seems when it comes to the fashion industry, designers have yet to embrace Christina Hendricks' curves.

Christina Hendricks, a size 14, cannot borrow dresses from designers, as sample sizes are between zero and two (UK size four-six)

Paris Hilton proven liar thanks to her own tweet, remains an idiot while doing so



A photograph posted by Paris Hilton more than a month prior to her drug arrest in Las Vegas could blow up her claim that the purse she was carrying -- which contained cocaine -- did not belong to her, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

In mid-July, Paris Tweeted a photograph of a purse and wrote: "Love My New Chanel Purse I Got Today :)" That purse appears to be identical to the purse she was carrying when arrested on cocaine possession charges in Las Vegas last weekend.

It could be a stunning blow to Paris' claim that the purse in which cops found cocaine did not belong to her and that she borrowed it from a girlfriend.

One photo from the night of the arrest contains an out of focus image of the purse, but it is clear that it is a Chanel, with the distinctive interlocking Cs. The clasp in the front of the purse also appears to be the same.

RadarOnline.com discovered another photo of Paris with the new Chanel purse before the arrest. That photo was taken July 25.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, when Hilton was arrested Saturday night, police saw a small bindle of cocaine in her purse after stopping the car in which she was a passenger. Cops said they smelled marijuana coming from the car.

When police saw cocaine in Paris' purse she said the purse was not hers, and that "she had borrowed it from a friend."

Paris told police that $1,300 in cash and a credit card in the purse were hers, but "several cosmetic items in the purse were not hers."

She was then placed under arrest "for possession of a controlled substance cocaine." She is facing a felony charge that carries one to four years in prison.

As RadarOnline.com reported earlier Thursday, police did not give Paris a blood test and that could ultimately help her defense.

Television: A Melting Pot?


The lack of ethnic representation on television has always seemed to be underestimated. Either they are represented in stereotypical ethnic roles or they are nonexistent. There have only been one or two successful primetime shows about various ethnic groups every decade, like The Cosby Show of the 1990s and The George Lopez Show of the 2000s. The struggle has continued in this day and age. Some ethnicities are gaining ground like African-Americans and Indian-Americans, while others like Asian-Americans are still relegated to subordinate positions. This fall’s primetime programming shows signs of improvement for underrepresented ethnicities.
 
BBC and E4 in the UK have already been cashing in on ethnicities by featuring them in programming like Doctor Who and Skins, respectively. While some networks like ABC continue to cast ethnic actors in typical roles, NBC is branching beyond stereotypes with its primetime programming this fall. One of their more anticipated shows this fall is Undercovers, from the genius that is J.J. Abrams.

Happy 90210 Day!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 Due to a happy accident of the calendar, today is 9/02/10, and diehard fans are using it as an excuse to celebrate the quintessential '90s drama, Beverly Hills 90210. It's time we have our own discussion about the show.

For members of a certain generation, 90210 was our first brush with pop culture obsession. Kicking off in '90 on the still-fledgling Fox network, the show was a scrubbed-clean soap opera from the genius mind of Aaron Spelling and Darren Starr about a pair of twins who come from the simple life in Minnesota to the racy world of Beverly Hills. Enrolled at West Beverly High School, Brandon and Brenda Walsh were the aw-shucks foils to the fast-living teens that soon made up their circle of friends. There was celebrity spawn Steve, party girl Kelly, bad boy Dylan, dim but sweet virgin Donna, striving freshman David, some kid in a cowboy hat who got shot, and Andrea, the brainy editor of the school paper who lived on the wrong side of the tracks and lied about her address to get into the good school. How boringly earnest.

When 90210 started, it was one of the lowest-rated shows on the air. Teenagers slowly started tuning into the show, though, and helped take it from the brink of cancellation to the center of the pop culture universe. Collapse )


'Beverly Hills, 90210': Where Are They Now?
Tiffani Thiessen, Tori Spelling, Luke Perry and Gang Graduated to Parenthood

By LUCHINA FISHER
Aug. 19, 2010—

Two months after giving birth to her daughter, Tiffani Thiessen returned to work this week on the set of her USA series "White Collar" with newborn Harper Renn and husband Brady Smith in tow.

As one of the last of the "Beverly Hills, 90210" stars to enter parenthood, Thiessen, 36, makes it official: the "90210" graduates have all grown up. Moving on from the show, which ended in 2000 after 10 seasons, has been another matter.

After The CW Network revived the series in 2008 with "90210," three of the original stars, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling, signed on for guest appearances. As for the other five, no matter where their personal or professional lives take them, they will always be identified with the popular '90s drama about a group of teens living and attending high school in upscale, star-studded Beverly Hills.

As Luke Perry, who played brooding bad boy Dylan McKay, once put it: "I'm going to be linked with him until I die, but that's actually just fine. I created Dylan McKay. He's mine."

Here's a look at where they are now:

NBC develops 'adult Harry Potter' series

The creator of Battlestar Galactica is developing a new magic-based series for NBC.

Deadline reports that Ronald D. Moore is working with Sony TV on a new project described as "an adult Harry Potter" set in a world where magic rules and the laws of science do not apply.

The new series is believed to have received pilot and series penalties totaling close to $2m.

Moore previously signed a two-year deal with Sony in May. His previous work includes Battlestar and spinoff series Caprica, both of which were co-produced by David Eick.

In addition to Moore, Sony has also made a drama development deal with Smallville creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, who are currently working on a reboot of Charlie's Angels.

Jenny Lewis Is Tired of Being in a Band



Vanity Fair Q&A by Michael D. Ayers

Jenny Lewis has spent the last 10 years fronting successful indie-pop band Rilo Kiley, yet after four albums and countless tours with the L.A.–based quartet, she was restless and ready to work outside the confines of a band. She first branched out on her own with 2006’s Rabbit Fur Coat, an Americana-inspired collaboration with folk duet the Watson Twins. Then, she went full-on solo with 2008’s Acid Tongue, an album that saw her working with a host of musicians, including Elvis Costello, Zooey Deschanel, the Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson, and a young singer-songwriter named Jonathan Rice. Lewis and Rice were no strangers before Acid Tongue. As a solo artist, he’d opened for Rilo Kiley. On tour, their relationship evolved on both the professional and personal level—the two have been dating since 2005.


Today marks the release of I’m Having Fun Now, the first proper collaboration between the two under the moniker Jenny and Johnny. It has elements of your favorite pop and singer-songwriter records, but feels more like an inspired, late-70s Elvis Costello- meets-the-Lemonheads, where drugs, knives , and snakes are as influential as they are dangerous. For Lewis, it’s her best work in years.For Rice, it’s his best work to date. Earlier this summer, VF Daily spoke with Jenny and Johnny at the Hotel Rivington on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Katy Perry's disappointing first-week album sales: Is she overexposed?



 No matter how they try to spin it, Katy Perry and her label are surely feeling a certain letdown this morning. After dominating airwaves for much of the summer, Perry was only able to move 192,000 copies of her sophomore album in its first week on sale. That’s enough to make Teenage Dream the country’s biggest album in this sleepy late-August frame. It’s much better than her previous album managed in its first week, and it’s obviously worlds away from an all-out, retire-in-shame flop. But it’s also nowhere near the kind of first-week numbers that other radio staples like Drake (447,000) and Usher (329,000), let alone Eminem (741,000), have put up in recent months. Perry’s “California Gurls” is widely considered a front-runner for this year’s Song of the Summer, with her own “Teenage Dream” single not far behind. How come those major hits didn’t translate into equally strong album sales?

Britney cheating on Jason?



Britney Spears has been making secret phone calls to ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.

The ‘Womanizer’ hitmaker – who dated the British photographer for around three months – has reportedly been making sneaky calls to the 37-year-old snapper, in spite of the fact he was considered largely to blame for the media attention which led to her infamous mental breakdown.

A source close to the troubled star revealed to Usmagazine.com: “She says she’s not living the life she wants.”

The 28-year-old singer is currently placed under the conservatorship of her father Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who have complete control of her assets.

However, if she has made contact with her ex-love in recent weeks, it goes against the restraining order that was placed upon Adnan and her former manager Sam Lutfi in January 2009, after the duo were reportedly plotting to take control of Britney’s affairs.

The source added: “She really wants to get back together with Adnan.”

Britney has been dating her former manager Jason Trawick, 38, since March 2009.

Ashton Kutcher slams mag for cheating story

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ashton Kutcher is the latest star to take his reputation into his own hands with a little social networking.

A week after John Mayer blasted the HuffPo on his blog for daring to say that he may be reviving a relationship with ex Jennifer Aniston, Ashton Kutcher took to Twitter (not like he “takes to” anything else, but whatevs) to do damage control on a rumor that he’s stepping out on Demi Moore.

In an "exclusive report", Star magazine claims that Kutcher, 32, was caught getting close to a "hot young blonde."

The piece quoted a source saying, “Ashton had this gorgeous girl pinned against the wall, and he was totally making out with her.” The source added that the girl “obviously wasn’t Demi.”

The report began circulating Wednesday - around the same time that photos of a bikini-clad Moore began to surface from the star's Twitter account - and it didn’t take long for Kutcher to fire back. “STAR magazine – you don't get to stand behind ‘freedom of the press’ when you are writing fiction,” he tweeted yesterday.

“I think Star magazine calling me a 'cheater' qualifies as defamation of character,” Kutcher added. “I hope my lawyer agrees.” Moore has backed up her husband, who is 15 years her junior, tweeting, "Excellent point my love!"

When reached for comment, a Star magazine spokesperson said the publication stands by the story.

The couple celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary at the end of September.

Oscar buzz for Portman in 'Black Swan'


Has Queen Amidala turned to the dark side?

Natalie Portman, a paragon of virtue in the Star Wars films and an actress often typecast as the girl next door, is the talk of the town at the Venice Film Festival this week with her racy, gritty role in the ballerina thriller Black Swan.

The film is earning early Oscar buzz for Portman, 29, who "hyper-trained" for six months for the extremely physical role, and who shares a steamy lesbian love scene in the movie with actress Mila Kunis.

The director, Darren Aronofsky, "talked to me about this [sex] scene in our first meeting eight years ago," Portman told reporters in Venice, according to Reuters.

"He described it as: 'You're going to have a sex scene with yourself.' And I thought that was very interesting, because this movie is in so many ways an exploration of an artist's ego and that narcissistic sort of attraction to yourself and also repulsion with yourself."

In the movie, Portman plays Nina, a ballerina whose fiery passion for performing causes her to become mentally unhinged. The mental and physical preparation for the role were both grueling for the actress.

"Six months ahead of the film, I went into sort of hyper-training, where five hours a day I was doing both ballet and cross-training, with swimming," Portman tells Britain's Press Association. "A few months before was when we started getting into the choreography. It was very extreme."

Reviews have been mostly positive for the film, and glowing for Portman. The Hollywood Reporter says the actress "bravely ventured out of her comfort zone to play a character slowly losing sight of herself. It's a bravura performance."

Hugh Jackman participates in touching/sappy personal video

Sydneysider Kristian Anderson, 35, has been having chemotherapy since he was diagnosed with cancer in October 2009. He made the video for his wife of seven years, Rachel, as a birthday present and a thank-you for her support.

The video features cameos by New Zealand Prime Minister John Key -- since Rachel is a Kiwi -- and Hugh Jackman, who appeared in the video after Kristian asked Triple M's The Grill presenter Gus Worland for help.

Diddy Sued by Ex-Employee for age discrimination

 

Bad Boy mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has been dragged into a new legal battle by a former employee who alleges she was dismissed because she was too old and disabled.

Francesca Spero, 51, claims Diddy fired her from her executive position at Bad Boy Records in March after she “suffered a relapse” of an addiction to prescription medication and alcohol following a painful hip replacement operation.


The pair go way back: Spero — who describes herself as a “51-year-old White woman” — introduced Combs to hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and Uptown Records after their initial meeting in 1988.

“Francesca Spero opened the door for Combs’ career and, now that she’s 51, he showed her the door at Bad Boy,” her attorney, Laurie Berke-Weiss told NBC New York.

According to the suit, filed in Federal Court in Manhattan Wednesday and obtained by TMZ.com, Spero alleges Diddy was “unsympathetic to her condition” and attempted to get rid of her. She was eventually replaced by a woman at least 10 years her junior, who she claims “lacked the skill set and experience Spero brought to the position.”

Spero claims Diddy and his partners owe her $12 million in damages for age and disability discrimination.

A publicist for Combs says: “There are many reasons why Ms. Spero is no longer employed by Bad Boy, but age discrimination is not one of them.”

T. I. awaits his Probation Violation Probe, remains an idiot while doing so.


TMZ has learned ... federal officials are "in the process" of determining if they will try to revoke T.I.'s probation in the wake of his arrest late last night.

As we first reported, T.I. -- who is still on probation for illegally possessing machine guns a few years ago -- was arrested again last night for possession of a controlled substance on the Sunset Strip.

Now, United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates tells us, "The probation office is in the process of determining what happened and will make a recommendation regarding Mr. Harris when they have all the facts."

If officials determine T.I. did violate his probation, he could be sent back to the slammer to serve some serious prison time.

UPDATE: We're told T.I.'s probation officer has asked the rapper to return to Atlanta.

Is Kanye West's 'Runaway Love' Remix The 'Future Of Hip-Hop'?


By Paul Cantor

Kanye West's remix of Justin Bieber's "Runaway Love" hit the Internet yesterday, and the track -- which also features Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon The Chef -- drew a wealth of reaction.

Collapse )

What do you think? Is "Runaway Love" the future of hip-hop? Sound off below!

I think the better question is will this song get played on the radio? I hope it does. That's great if Justin Bieber fans and younger music listeners in general find out about some good hip hop but I just want to see how Justin will do on urban stations. In my head I can see Justin Bieber's popularity thinning out when he gets into his 20s and he might become a new version of Robin Thicke.

Anna Wintour Rolls Eyes at Gaga's Connection to God

title or description

During a Wednesday night visit to 'Late Night Jimmy Fallon'. Wintour spoke about this year's Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala and Gaga's pre-show rituals, which made Wintour roll her eyes in disapproval.

"We had Lady Gaga this year," said Wintour. "There was a moment when she was communing with God and she was praying in the back, waiting for God to tell her it was all right to go actually onstage." 

Apparently Gaga had a very long chat with God, which clearly annoyed the real queen of fashion. "Fortunately he gave her the message after 45 minutes," she quipped.

Can Rachel Zoe Get Pregnant?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This season of Rachel's show has focused on whether she can make time in her schedule for her ticking biological clock. Yet nobody has addressed the elephant in the room: whether or not she weighs enough to get pregnant.

On last night's episode, Rachel hung out with her client Kate Hudson, whose free-spirited, easy-going nature has a positive effect on the stylist. And as it has on every episode this season, the topic of baby-making was raised.

But before she gets to those kids, we learn that Rachel never wears bikinis and never goes in the water. She says that this is because she's "frigid," but last week the audience was also treated to much discussion of Rachel's refusal to wear lingerie. Yes, a woman can just hate bikinis and lingerie and always feel chilly. But if you've been following the show over time, these are just two more of the several moments that hint at Rachel's discomfort with her body.

Nicole Richie Talks Pregnancy, Family, & Regrets w/InStyle UK

Nicole Richie struck some gorgeous poses in her photoshoot for InStyle magazine, and has made the cover of the October issue. Inside she talks about her past, taking responsibility, regrets and her children Harlow and Sparrow. Here are some extracts:


  • On the past: "One thing about me is that I’ve always taken responsibility for my own actions whether they’re good or bad. Even when I was going through my tough time, that was a situation that I created. People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No I don’t blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people.”
  • On tattoo regrets: “I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it.”
  • On pregnancy: “Being pregnant with Harlow was easy. I was wearing heels for eight months. I never got sick and I was like, ‘Oh, what are people talking about?’ But with Sparrow, I was so sick. And my feet were swelling. They were polar opposite pregnancies.”
  • On Harlow: “She picks her own clothes. It’s a 20-minute thing – it begins at 7.30 each morning – but it is what it is and it’s fine."
