Korean Mothers Think Watching A Show With A Gay Couple Will Make Their Sons Gay!

Photobucket

With SBS’s drama, “Life Is Beautiful“, showing a gay couple as part of the story plot, mothers worried about the futures of their children, created a union and released a newspaper ad on September 29th through Chosun Journal.
The ad stated, “If my son becomes gay and dies from AIDs after watching ‘Life Is Beautiful’, SBS must take responsibility!
The union that released the ad stated, “‘Life Is Beautiful’ has glamorized the culture of gays against what is realistically, healthy and proper for the citizens of Korea.”

Mary-Kate, left, and Ashley Olsen inspect every seam on their garments. "All of our fabrics are Italian and we make everything in the U.S. We control it," says Mary-Kate. Adds Ashley: "We get to nurture the product when it's here."

The sisters are equal perfectionists when it comes to their creations, they say. "I feel that we may obsess over different things," says Ashley. Says Mary-Kate: "Ummm, I can look at the same dress and talk about the same seam in ten different fittings. I'm not great at explaining. What would you say?" Concludes Ashley: "You get really close to the product and want it to be the best it can be."

Megan Fox Almost Flashes "Upskirt", But Leaves Us With 'Thigh-Gina'

In addition to this post. No this set wasn't posted.

Megan Fox
is hot. We know that. She's, well, officially referred to as an actress. We know that. But what we didn't know, and now regret, is her amazing ability to prevent the upskirt photo from taking place. Seen here in Milan at the Fashion Week I definitely need to start attending, Megan Fox flashes the thigh-gina, the crease between the tightly bound upper-gams that has often tricked an inexperienced young man in the backseat of a car into thinking he was hitting a triple. Megan Fox does it so well. So well that it's so wrong. Nevertheless, Enjoy.

Katy Perry Squeezing her Tits for Some Photoshoot

I almost feel bad that Sesame Street turned on Katy Perry after parents got mad about the amount of tit she was showing, even though kids view tits as a food source and not as something to stick their dicks between….because growing up with a face like Katy Perry’s her only real option in life, other than being an over-rated popstar because the public are fucking idiots and buy into anything that marketing tells them to, was for her to be a muppet….

Here are her tits being squeezed together, cuz that’s all she’s good for…seriously, this twat has no other reason for being on TV….and I have a feeling she probably knows that…

On a sidenote, I still haven’t got the Titty fuck pictures of her, but I do know people who know her, and she was a huge slut before sneaking into this fame game by sucking the right cock, so I know they are out there and it is only a matter of time….in the meantime…this is as close as I can get to Katy Perry smut.

The 7 Most Absurd And Unnecessary Books From Celebrities

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


The market for books by celebrities won't go away. They are dominating children's picture books and they are now writing novels and memoirs in droves. The book buying public and the publishers seem to keep wanting more.

Case in point: This week Nicole Richie published her second -- yes, second! -- novel. And just yesterday, we heard news that Snooki would be writing one of her own when she claimed to have only ever read two books in her life.

In a market where bookstores are dying, less books are being published and writers suffer daily, is this an indication of where the reading public is heading permanently?
Well, maybe ... But, we'll let you decide. Here are "The 7 Most Absurd And Unnecessary Books From Celebrities." Tell us, though: Do we need more?

Jenny McCarthy Talks Extreme Horniness, Penis Sizes

Move over “Cougar Town,” Jenny McCarthy is the real deal.

In a new – and quite outrageous– interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, the uncensored former Playboy Playmate revealed that in her late 30s, she’s feeling sexier – and more lustful — than ever.

“Dispel a myth for men: Do women lust as much as men lust?” Billy asked Jenny in the interview promoting her sexy new book, “Love, Lust & Faking It: The Naked Truth about Sex, Lies, And True Romance.”

“No, you guys! I mean, mind you, as we get older, I’ve noticed, now being 37, I’m much more horny than I was in my 20s,” she said.

“How horny are you – scale of 1-10?” Billy asked.

“I’m about a 9.8,” Jenny laughed, uproariously.

The blonde bombshell didn’t stop there – in her book, she sets the story straight on “man junk”… so Billy asked her the question men really want to know.

“Does size matter?” he probed.

“Size definitely helps, but the thing is, you don’t need big,” she said. “Average is awesome. Standard issue is awesome!”

Singer Mario Arrested -- Allegedly Attacked Mother



Mario -- the platinum-selling R&B singer -- was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his own mother in an apartment they share.

According to police, Mario's mother Shawntia Hardaway -- a former heroin addict -- told cops Mario had been "throwing and damaging property" ... and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.

Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment -- including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.

Mario's mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week -- in which he pushed her "eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall."

Mario -- real name Mario Dewar Bennett -- was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He was held on $50,000 bond -- which he posted ... and has since been released.

"Pacific Coast News says that's "Miley Cyrus wearing a pair of denim hotpants and cropped top for a night at Voyeur nightclub in Hollywood. The singer was hidden as she left the club and bundled into a car by friends who shielded her from the cameras." For those of you unfamiliar with Voyeur, it's a 21-and-over sex-themed nightclub featuring pornographic wallpaper and "impromptu bondage and S&M 'scenes' being played out on an elevated platform by scantily clad performers throughout the night." And for those of you unfamiliar with Miley, she's 17. As in "years-old." Cool, she must have gotten an underage drinking waiver from Governor Schwarzenegger. They have those, right?"

nooki To Star In A Dating Reality Show On MTV



Snooki will soon get her own MTV spinoff series, In Touch reports. The 'Jersey Shore' star will look for love on a dating reality show. Snooki recently described what she is looking for in a man: a tan juicehead who isn't a jerk-off and must be a nympho.


In Touch's press release follows:

Life is looking up for unlucky-in-love Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi - she's getting her own dating show! The pint-sized Jersey Shore starlet, who recently called her ex Jeff Miranda a "stalker" and split from former boyfriend Emilio Masella amidst rumors of his straying eye, will search for true love in an MTV reality series, sources tell In Touch. "They are set to make the big announcement any day now," an insider says, adding that viewers can expect Jersey-worthy drama on the Shore-to-be-hit. Snooki's pals, like Jenni "JWoww" Farley, and even a variety of ex-boyfriends are slated to make appearances. "One may try to win her heart back, and another may serve as a consultant," the insider says of the roles her former loves will play. So what will Snooki be looking for in a suitor on the series? "He needs to make me laugh. If he's not goofy and afraid to be a dork, I'm not feeling it," she recently told In Touch. The 22-year-old publicly discussed her intentions to star in a dating show last January.

I AM EXCITED. Though I also hope there is a Jwow/Snooki show.

Studio to shoot The Hobbit damaged in fire
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Parts of troubled movie The Hobbit may have literally gone up in smoke this afternoon after a Wellington miniatures studio lined up for filming on Sir Peter Jackon's movie was damaged by a major fire.

Fire crews battled for nearly three hours to put out the blaze at the Rongotai Road warehouse and workshop housing Portsmouth Miniatures Studio, a shooting stage owned by Sir Peter.

The flames prompted a flood of calls from throughout Kilbirnie and neighbouring areas, including from the air traffic control tower at nearby Wellington Airport.

"It would have been used in the shooting of The Hobbit, yes," a spokesman for Sir Peter's Wingnut Films production company, Matthew Dravitzki, told NZPA.

The producers are currently in a dispute with actors over employment terms for the adaptation of JRR Tolkien's book, with unions threatening to escalate into a worldwide boycott of the production. The project has been hit by other problems, including financial troubles for MGM, which owns the rights to The Hobbit, and the departure of director Guillermo del Toro in May because of delays.

Portsmouth had provided a large studio and shot all the miniatures and many special effects for the King Kong and Lord of the Rings movies, according to the company's website.

"It's a specialist miniatures shooting facility, it's one of the only ones in the world, and I can't comment at this point as to whether (the damage) will cause a problem," Mr Dravitzki said.

They were waiting for an inspection by the fire service and their own insurers for information about what had been damaged and lost, or how long it would take to restore the facility.

"I probably won't know that until after the weekend."

Radiohead contributing to score for Edward Norton movie Stone


 

 
Jonny Greenwood’s musical contribution to There Will Be Blood was unconscionably snubbed for an Academy Award in 2008. And while it looks like he won’t be eligible this year either, we will still have a chance to hear some of his and Thom Yorke’s film scoring ideas. According to a recent interview with Edward Norton in Variety, Yorke and Greenwood contributed music to John O’Brien’s film score to the upcoming movie Stone.

“I’m friends with the guys in Radiohead,” said Norton, “and Jonny Greenwood met me in London a while back when John (Curran, the director) and I were developing the script.

“So given the spiritual ties in this film, I started talking to him about this idea: ‘What would you use to record this divine-like tuning sound?’ And he and Thom (Yorke) had been playing a lot of weird ambient stuff at the time and so, amazingly, they just unloaded tons and tons of files to us of these sound experiments that they had been doing. We just listened to them in awe until John (Curran) eventually got John O’Brien to come in and see what he could make of it.”

No word yet on the specifics of the soundtrack, or whether or not the score will feature specific tracks or whether there will just be Radiohead-esque ideas thrown into the score. And unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as if there is a soundtrack available for purchase as of yet.

So if you want to hear their work in Stone, which also stars Robert De Niro and Milla Jovovich, catch it when it hits theaters October 8th.

Travie McCoy Finally Addresses Katy Perry's 'Circle The Drain'

'I'm just stoked that she finally has a song with some substance on her record,' he tells MTV News.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By James Montgomery
Two weeks before Katy Perry's Teenage Dream hit stores, a song from the album called "Circle the Drain" leaked, and jaws everywhere dropped.

Because though Perry has never explicitly said as much (she preferred to call the song her " 'You Oughta Know,' Alanis Morrissette moment"), "Drain" is very clearly about one of her exes. And with lines like "You fall asleep during foreplay/ 'Cause the pills you take are more your forte," it's not difficult to figure out which one: Travie McCoy, who, while dating Perry, entered a rehab facility in 2008 to deal with an addiction to pharmaceutical drugs.

Nicki Minaj Tells Her Gay Fans: 'Suicide Is Never The Answer'

Outspoken MC Nicki Minaj has said that she wants to help eradicate homophobia in hip-hop. With the recent rash of suicides by gay youths who have been bullied because of their sexuality, Minaj is now reaching out to tell her fans, point blank, that "suicide is never the answer."

"I would encourage my gay fans to be fighters and to be brave," she told MTV News. "People face difficulties, no matter who you are. I faced difficulties with a lot of things. I face opposition every day, but I didn't kill myself and now, thank God, I'm here. So I want my life to be a testimony to my fans and my gay fans.

"I mean I could never imagine what they're going through,"
she continued. "But I know that suicide is never the answer and I know that things always get better. So I'm supporting you guys. I love you very, very much and for the people who don't love you, they need help."

Minaj added that she thinks knowing the motivations of bullies could help those being taunted feel stronger. "I don't agree that everyone should agree with everyone's lifestyle. I think that some people aren't going to agree, but I think that when you're mean and when you ridicule people it's a sign of your own insecurities," she explained. "So shout out to all my Ken and Barbies out there and my girls too; just believe that things will get better and they will they always do.

"It just takes a little willpower. There's an answer. There's always a different way that you can fight people back,"
she continued. "And definitely [with] suicide you're giving up and I don't promote giving up. I promote fighting and winning."

Minaj joins columnist Dan Savage and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in speaking out against bullying and in support of gay rights.

Levine returns to action, conducting Met’s high-tech new ‘Ring’



The Metropolitan Opera unveiled a major new staging of Wagner’s “Das Rheingold’’ on Monday night, yet before a single note was played the audience rose to its feet to give James Levine an extended welcome-back ovation. The music director of both the Met and the Boston Symphony Orchestra has been out on a prolonged medical leave recovering from back surgery last April. In his bows at the end of the night, he looked trimmer than when last seen in Boston and walked gingerly with support from one of the opera’s stars. He was clearly thrilled to be back before a live audience. He returns to Symphony Hall this week to lead the BSO in its Saturday night season-opener.

The new baseline for Levine’s health won’t become clear for at least several weeks, once he has ventured further into a frighteningly busy fall schedule. But at least on Monday night, while his physical recovery seemed a work in progress, his musical intensity appeared at full force, judging by the viscerally charged, supplely paced, luxuriously detailed performance he drew from the Met orchestra and a stellar cast headed by Bryn Terfel as Wotan.

Of course, the other big story of the night was the premiere of Robert Lepage’s technologically virtuosic production, the first in the “Ring" cycle that the Met will be unveiling in the coming seasons. Anticipation has run extremely high for the Lepage “Ring," which general manager Peter Gelb has called “the most complicated and challenging’’ production ever attempted at the Met.

Em wont be doing any 360s anytime soon...

A representative for Eminem has dismissed reports the rapper has signed up for a serious acting turn in new movie 360.

The hip-hop star made his big screen debut in 2002's semi-autobiographical film 8 Mile and was rumoured to be making a return to cinemas with a role in the sex-themed drama opposite Oscar-winners Sir Anthony Hopkins and Rachel Weisz.

But a spokesperson for Eminem is adamant no deal has been done, telling Allhiphop.com, "There's no truth to it all."

The rep also laughed off speculation the rapper is in talks to join the cast of Christopher Nolan's latest Batman movie after online gossips linked him to the role of The Riddler, previously played by Jim Carrey.

FML - J.K. Rowling Hints to Oprah There Could Be More Harry Potter

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fans, rejoice – J.K. Rowling offered a bit of hope on Friday that, perhaps, the final Harry Potter story has yet to be told.

"I could definitely write an eighth, ninth, tenth," the celebrated author, 45, told Oprah Winfrey during an interview scheduled to air Friday. "I'm not going to say I won't. I don't think I will … I feel I am done, but you never know."

Speaking in Edinburgh, where the interview took place, Rowling said she felt something of a loss upon finishing the saga's last installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. "It was a bereavement," she said.

Not that she's completely put down her pen. Rowling plans to write more books, and feels there is no need to match or top her previous achievement.

"I did it. I'm really proud I did it," she said. "But this is a new phase."

Beautiful, down-to-earth, talented perfect jaw post



The 25-year-old actress told Parade's Jeanne Wolf that she appreciated the complexity of her latest film, Never Let Me Go. Plus, how she knew it was time to leave her Pirates days behind.

Understanding her complicated character:
"You know, I think a lot of people have had a real problem with the fact that these characters don't run away and that there isn't a rebellion. But I think that's not what this story is. This story is about acceptance and accepting a horrendous fate. But nevertheless, living with it and not running away from it. And I think that it is because they're institutionalized and incredibly innocent and have been brought up in a particular way. And that's actually what for me is so horrendous about the story -- is that they have no other option because of the way that they've been brought up and that's terrifying I think. It also makes complete sense in this story."

Paul McCartney Comes Out...




...with a letter to George Michael.

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has sent a handwritten letter to his incarcerated pal GEORGE MICHAEL to help the singer through his current jail stint, according to a U.K. report.

The former Wham! star has been behind bars since 14 September (10), when he was jailed for possession of cannabis and driving under the influence of drugs following a car crash in north London in July (10).

And the Beatles legend, who himself spent 10 days in prison in 1980 for cannabis possession, has reportedly offered Michael his support by sending a personal message.

A source tells Britain's The Sun, "He (Michael) got the letter on Monday and was really chuffed. Sir Paul said he would see him soon and told George to keep his chin up. The letter was two pages long and George read it over and over again."

For Anyone Who Thinks These Ppl Are Going Away...

JERSEY SHORE POSTS *SERIES* HIGH RATINGS

Broadcast TV is back in season? Forgetaboutit.
 

After taking the most modest of dips during the major network's premiere week, MTV's "Jersey Shore" bounced back up Thursday night to hit yet another series high.
 

"Jersey" drew 6.7 million viewers and a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49. That's a higher demo number than anything on broadcast in the hour.
 

If a broadcast network launched "Jersey Shore" this fall and drew this at 10 p.m. on Thursdays with nothing but a repeat for a lead-in, they'd be ecstatic ... well, taking a lot of crap from critics and not getting the best ad rates, but ecstatic.

Russell Brand wants to drink Katy Perry's Breast Milk



Russell Brand has claimed that he can't wait for Katy Perry to get pregnant… so that he can drink her breast milk.

The comedian, who was being interviewed by Jonathan Ross about his book, My Booky Wooky 2: This Time It's Personal, made the comment in front of an audience at London's Hackney Empire last night.

Brand was in the middle of telling the crowd about a former girlfriend who used to let him drink her breast milk, adding that Katy also wouldn't mind.

He joked: "She likes it which bodes well for the first pregnancy."

Perry recently hinted on Twitter that she might be expecting the couple's first child after sending a message to Russell claiming 'diapers' maybe in their near future.

Meanwhile, Russell added he liked the fact that his future wife was 'sexy' and 'desirable to others' - especially for two reasons in particular.

The funny-man claimed: "Frankly, if she lost them I'd be on the phone to Lady GaGa…"

Russell's dedicated his new autobiography, the follow-up to his first memoirs, to Perry writing in the book sleeve: "For Katy. This is my past, you are my future."

Looks like there's a mini Roots reunion going on somewhere, because LeVar Burton just posted this picture of himself (@LeVarBurton), Ben Vereen (@BenVereen), and Louis Gosset Jr. at what looks like a photo studio on his Twitter page.

Fun fact! Not only did Ben and LeVar appear in Roots together, they also did episodes of Reading Rainbow and Start Trek. The more you know....

Would you like a Glee episode of *NSYNC?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Joey Fatone has confessed that he would love to reunite with his former 'N Sync group members for an appearance on Glee.

Speaking to People, the singer said that he was inspired by a recent episode of the Fox musical series which featured songs by Britney Spears.

"I saw the Britney Spears one and I thought it was kind of cool," he explained.

"I said, 'You know what? They should do an 'N Sync one'. So I mentioned it on Twitter, and everyone is retweeting it and saying, 'That would be great!'"

He added: "I love acting and I like to sing. It'd be perfect! Seriously, it's a great show. I'm a fan."

What songs should they include, if it happens, ONTD?

Kaley Cuoco back on BBT after injury

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Three weeks after breaking her leg in a horseback-riding mishap, Big Bang Theory leading lady Kaley Cuoco is getting ready to head back to work.

Cuoco—who ended up missing only two episodes—is scheduled to report back to the set of her CBS hitcom the week of Oct. 11.

It goes without saying that producers will be incorporating her injury into Penny’s storyline, but how? My guess: Penny slipped on a piece of Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake at work. Run with it, Bill Prady.

"[Loud is] just the perfect Rihanna album. Every song is tailored to me. I wanted songs on there that were all Rihanna songs, that nobody else could do. I didn't want the generic pop record that Ke$ha or Lady Gaga or Katy Perry could do."

ABC cancels ‘My Generation’



That's two.

ABC has canceled its documentary-style ensemble drama "My Generation" after only two episodes.

The network is halting production on the Thursday night drama series. What will take its place as the lead in for "Grey's Anatomy" is not yet clear.

After a poor premiere week opening, "My Generation" fell 31% for its second episode last night, to 3.9 million viewers and a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

The network's other struggling drama, Wednesday night legal series "The Whole Truth," is expected to get a third week at bat.

"My Generation" marks the second network series to get the axe this week, the first was Fox's "Lone Star." In addition to "Whole Truth," NBC's Friday night drama "Outlaw" is also on the bubble if it doesn't improve.

Blunt, who next appears in Gulliver's Travels and The Adjustment Bureau, will act alongside Bruce Willis (who starred in the time travel story 12 Monkeys) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who starred in Johnson's first film, Brick).

The early screenplay was described as "really violent and dark" by Johnson during a Brothers Bloom edit bay visit in 2008 and, according to more recent reports, will deal with a group of hitmen who receive their assignments from the future. Blunt is said to play a single mother whose son becomes a target.

NCIS star Michael Weatherly involved in car accident

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Michael Weatherly -- one of the stars of "NCIS" -- just got in a gnarly car accident near Universal Studios in L.A.

Witnesses tell TMZ ... Weatherly was driving a black Mercedes over the Barham Pass, which connects Hollywood with the San Fernando Valley, when the lanes merged and somehow at least two vehicles were involved in a collision.

Weatherly's car sustained some serious damage to the front passenger side. The front bumper was nearly ripped off the ride. A silver BMW was also damaged in the crash.

We just spoke with the driver of the silver BMW -- who told us Weatherly crashed into him and ran the BMW into a nearby pole. The driver tells us Weatherly quickly parked his car, approached the BMW and "accepted responsibility" for the accident.

The driver tells us both parties exchanged information. The BMW has already been loaded on to a tow truck. Weatherly seems okay -- he's on his cell phone right now.

An ambulance arrived but apparently it will be leaving without passengers.

Gaspard Noe's Enter The Void now on IFC on demand



One of the most anticipated cinematic events of the year, Gaspar Noe's ENTER THE VOID is a visionary cinematic thrill ride that’s riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals. At Cannes, Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called it "an exceptional work... What largely distinguishes it, beyond the stunning cinematography, is that this is the work of an artist who’s trying to show us something we haven’t seen before…Mr. Noé, in other words, gets into your body..." The long-awaited follow up to his controversial IRREVERSIBLE, ENTER THE VOID is a cinematic roller-coaster ride that according to Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com "represents a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling." Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in the visceral journey set against the thumping, neon club scene of Tokyo, which hurls the viewer into an astonishing trip through life, death, and the universally wonderful and horrible moments between.

The film is on demand from September 29 to December, and is now in select theaters.

Almost too gay to function Damian talks Lohan



Daniel Franzese gave an interview to NYPost.com's PopWrap, talking about his role as a lady rapist in I Spit on Your Grave and towards the end weighed in on his "Mean Girls" co-star Lindsay Lohan and all her dramz of late. Turns out he has a habit of working with actors who dabble in drugs

"You know, I’ve worked with Brad Renfro, Bijou Phillips, Natasha Lyonne and Eddie Furlong in addition Lindsay – I’ve worked with a lot of people that have had a rough time growing up in the industry. I’ve seen what it can do to them. But I’ve also seen the other side with Lacey Chabert, who grew up in this industry and is wonderful. It doesn’t surprise me but I definitely pray for the sanity of young Hollywood. Fame is a double edged sword. I come from the school of it’s all about the work – for me, the better you do on the red carpet, the worse you do in front of the camera. Nobody is going to pay $10 to see me in a movie theater if they can see me at a club every night. I would rather focus on culture and community service – things that fulfill my life."

50 Cent: Oral Sex Remarks Were Not Anti-Gay



50 Cent is trying to defend the controversial remarks he made about oral sex over Twitter.

"If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol," he tweeted on Thursday.

Even if he just meant to encourage straight men to give oral, his statement offended many considering the recent gay teen suicide at Rutgers, one of four similar tragedies within a month.

50 tried to explain himself Friday and in the process surely managed to offend again by saying that gays "choose an alternative lifestyle." In a series of tweets he wrote:

"The other night I made a joke about a blow job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same. Some how they turned a simple joke about oral sex into a anti gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose and alternative lifestyle in fact iv publicly stated my mom loved women. It funny how people think negative statements are news worthy but positive statements are not worthy of coverage. Access holly wood for got to put laughing out loud lol that was at the end of that statement."

In 2004, 50 Cent told Playboy that his mother was bisexual. He also said this:

"I ain't into f----ts. I don't like gay people around me, because I'm not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I'm not prejudiced. I just don't go with gay people and kick it--we don't have that much in common. I'd rather hang out with a straight dude. But women who like women, that's cool."

I feel like his original tweet was homophobic anyway because it didn't even acknowledge that gay men exist

It's a Miley post!



Miley Cyrus heads to the gym wearing a Detroit Tigers baseball cap for a workout session with her trainer on Friday (October 1) in Los Angeles.

The day before, the 17-year-old entertainer met up with friends in Westwood before going out that night. She partied at Voyeur nightclub, an adult venue that features topless dancers and S&M performances.

Miley hit the West Hollywood hot spot—sans Liam Hemsworth—to attend a private birthday bash. And by the looks of her short shorts and bare midriff, she seemed to be in the mood to show some skin herself.

So what was Miss Miley doing inside?

Keep your shirts on! Nothing too scandalous, according to sources at the scene.

"She wasn't drinking, just dancing with a girlfriend," one tells me.

Another partygoer, sitting at the table next to the teen, dishes: "I was expecting her to be pretty wild, but in all honesty, she seemed pretty chill and looked like she was having a good clean time."

Miley's rep didn't respond to our request for comment.

The "Party in the USA" singer left Voyeur around 1:30 a.m., but didn't want to get photographed. Her friends shielded her as she walked out, and then she hid on the floor of a pal's car as they drove off.

Plus, Miley gets her good on!

Artichoke Farts Will Be The Death Of Brangelina

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Finally, a tabloid out there has given us a real Brangelina story to care about. The National Enquirer (via Celebitchy) can take the rest of the month off and alert the Pulitzer Prize committee to stop the search for this year's winners, because nothing will top this. The final nail in Brangie's coffin isn't going to be made of the spit from the 187th baby she adopts. No, it's going to be made of Brad Pitt's artichoke farts. Farts will tear us apart!

A source (aka Jennifer Aniston's cat nanny with a voice box) claims that Brad Pitt's new thing is marinating artichokes into vodka for an evening martini (fartini, is more like it). Apparently, the artichokes summon a little rumble down below which causes his butt to burp like a newborn baby. Brad's caca clouds are not only ripping his panties apart, but they are also ripping apart Angie's sanity. The source went on to say “Brad gets some nasty gas from consuming so many artichokes, and it’s driving poor Angelina crazy. It’s gotten so bad that Angie sometimes sleeps in a separate bedroom!”

Who knew that Brad Pitt actually farts. And who also knew that St. Angie's holy nostrils don't filter out anything that smells stank. This is an education in so many ways.

And you know he dutch ovens her....

DEATHLY HALLOWS GETS 'R' RATING!!

The MPAA releases their batch of film ratings weekly, and there was an interesting surprise in this weeks group. They have given ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ a R-rating. Now, granted, the first three ‘Harry Potter’ films were rated PG, but, then, the next two went up to a PG-13. Because of their darker nature, the MPAA felt that ‘Goblet of Fire’ and ‘Order of the Phoenix’ were not appropriate for children of all ages.

Nadya Suleman Sells Used Underwear At Garage Sale.



File this under the grossest thing you’ve ever heard. Nadya Suleman has been adamant that she won’t do a sex tape to save her home that’s in foreclosure, but she’ll surely sell off her used underwear!

During her garage sale, the mom of fourteen sold off some goodies, trying to capitalize on her recent fame. She Knows reports:

To really make you lose your lunch, Suleman reportedly autographed a pair of white underwear that she wore when she was pregnant and put them up for auction.

Her used, gross underwear fetched $2,600 at the yard sale. Now I must ask you: What is the world coming to when someone will shell out that kind of money for a fat-lipped eight person incubator’s used undergarments?

TMZ spoke with Erica Langston ... who confirms she did make a sex tape earlier this year while she was in Miami for the show ... but she's not sure it will ever hit the shelves.

Sources involved with the situation tell us the tape features Erica with her boyfriend (pictured above) and another woman ... a woman who happened to co-star with Erica on "BGC."

Erica tells us she's considering releasing the tape -- but not until she can work out a legitimate deal.


BTW -- we asked Erica about the identity of the "other" woman ... but this time, her lips were sealed.

US: Has she given you any advice since she came out before you?
S: Yeah. I have definitely learned a lot from her. She is very supportive all the time. I remember when she reached out she was like 'Oh my god, "Impossible" is going to be huge for you. I'm so happy!' She's always sharing any good ideas.

US: Back in the day, did you guys talk about ruling the charts? Like 'we are going to be famous one day'?
S: No. We were in cadets together and I was her drill sergeant at one point. As much as we grew up together neither one of us had any clue the other wanted to be a singer. I remember the first time we saw each other in New York and she had just gotten signed. I hadn't even been signed yet. We were just like 'oh my god, this is so crazy.

SHIT JUST GOT REAL

BREAKING: Rick Sanchez Fired From CNN



CNN released this statement today:

“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“

They will broadcast CNN Newsroom from 3-5pm for the foreseeable future.

Here’s more from the story earlier today:
CNN’s Rick Sanchez is not happy with being made fun of constantly on The Daily Show and Colbert Report. It is from this jumping off point that he absolutely unleashed on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and at times his own network, on Pete Dominick’s satellite radio show yesterday.

The big takeaway – Sanchez calls Stewart “a bigot,” then walks it back a bit, and he implies CNN is run by Jews.

Dominick was not just a radio show host – he is a CNN contributor who has a regular gig on John King, USA (more on that below), and he formerly was the warm up comic at The Daily Show. Which is why when Sanchez says “I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot” early in the interview, Dominick pushed back:

Dominick: How is he a bigot?
Sanchez: I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.
Dominick: What group is he bigoted towards?
Sanchez: Everybody else who’s not like him. Look at his show, I mean, what does he surround himself with?

Is 'Chuck' Really In Trouble? Mixed thoughts...



Ratings haven't been spectacular, but within average ... yet there are some who think it's a goner.

There is absolutely no science to the fate of television shows (especially if they're on Fox), yet even though the 2010-11 season is barely a few weeks old, speculation on what will survive and what won't has already begun.

Some of that attention has turned to "Chuck" on NBC, the cult hit that has maintained a stable audience over the years ... just not a big one. Bill Gorman of TV by the Numbers has declared the Zachary Levi show dead in the water after two airings this season, calling it NBC's lowest non-Friday scripted program.

"'Chuck' fans grasping for shows that the cancellation bear might catch first should look no further," Gorman said. "Unless it can move up in the coming weeks, it's finally headed for cancellation."

Gorman declared "Chuck" will "likely" be cancelled by the end of the season, meaning there won't be another season pickup, while another NBC show -- "Outlaw" -- is definitely a goner, according to his numbers.

But how bad of shape is "Chuck" in? Our people at NBC aren't talking quite yet -- only two episodes have aired and a lot can change between now and then -- but it might be worth taking a look at how "Chuck" has worked for NBC historically.

So far this season, "Chuck" is averaging a 3.4 rating/5 share in Fast National overnight ratings from The Nielsen Co. It premiered Sept. 20 with a 3.5/5 but fell 9 percent in its second week to a 3.2/4. Overall, however, "Chuck" has an Audience Loyalty Index rating of 95.7, which means of all the people who have tuned in to see "Chuck" this year, nearly 96 percent of them have returned for every episode (well, all two, so far).

Collapse )

source


This guy is WRONG - when the final numbers for the second week were released they showed NO DROP in ratings.

Also I heard that NBC showcased Chuck as part of their "brand" to INVESTORS at a meeting about the NBC/Comcast merger or something like that - so obviously they believe in the show.  I've also heard that NBC has kind of accepted that the Chuck audience is the Chuck audience.  96% loyalty rate is absurd.  We're not going anywhere!!

Obviously this is way too early and this guy is jumping the gun but I posted it because it's somewhat interesting - especially the fact that Chuck has a 96% loyalty rating!

Live Nation needs Queentina to save the concert industry

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The concert business will end 2010 on a sour note, Live Nation Executive Chairman Irving Azoff told analysts today.

"We're still not seeing a consumer recovery" in ticket sales, after a summer when revenues declined, Azoff said at a meeting organized by Liberty Media. Liberty owns 14% of Live Nation, the No. 1 owner of concert halls and, with Ticketmaster, an e-commerce powerhouse.

Next year may improve, he said, as hitmakers who sat on the sidelines in 2010 plan major tours. He's especially optimistic that the cast of the TV show Glee, Van Halen, Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera, and Fleetwood Mac will fill arenas and ampitheaters.

But Live Nation hopes to boost its profits by upselling consumers -- encouraging people who buy concert tickets to also spring for the performer's recorded music, a DVD of the concert, T-shirts, ringtones, posters, books, and banners.

"We intend to become the Amazon of the music business," Azoff said.

Teresa Decides NOT To Sell All of Her Stuff; Tacky Furnishing Enthusiasts Mourn



Those hoping to score an antique chandelier, mahogany table or another item from the Giudice mansion are out of the luck: The Real Housewives of New Jersey star's belongings are off the market.

The auction scheduled to sell off the personal effects of Teresa Giudice and her family has been canceled, her lawyer tells PEOPLE. Instead, the legal rep said a private sale would be held to maximize the amount of money the Giudice family receives for their valuables." When the sale is conducted, the Giudices would get $52,000, because they are allowed that as exemptions," their lawyer, Jim Kridel, tells PEOPLE. "There would have been a shortfall. What if they got $30,000, but they owed $52,000 to the Giudices? It wouldn't help, so we said why not have a private sale? It would be best for the state, the creditors, the trustees and the Giudices."

Has the Velvet Underground's Maureen Tucker joined the Tea Party?
Three-minute news clip suggests Maureen Tucker, drummer for the iconic band, may be a Tea Party member


she comes on at 2:40

The Tea Party movement has already astonished observers with its meteoric rise across the US. But yesterday Twitter was buzzing with speculation about whether it had acquired an icon of cool as one of its supporters — a member of the legendary sixties band Velvet Underground.

A three-minute news clip from a local TV station in Georgia went viral on Friday, evoking alarmed responses from Velvet Underground fans that the band's drummer, Maureen 'Moe' Tucker, may have joined the ranks of Tea Party followers.

The clip showed a Tea Party rally in Tiftin, Georgia, and included a 20-second interview with a woman going by the same name, who says: "I'm furious about the way we're being led towards socialism. I'm furious about the incredible waste of money when things that we really need and are important get dropped because there's no money left."

Twitter was filled with speculation about whether the woman in the clip was the Maureen Tucker who sat behind Lou Reed and John Cale, thrashing at her set of drums on songs such as I'm Waiting for the Man and Sunday Morning.

Could it possibly be the same person managed by Andy Warhol?

For someone who thinks Perry should have been nominated every year since The Family That Preys, this is what you’d call a watershed moment. Or maybe a tear-shed moment. Click through to see why.
 

Perry’s film is the long-awaited (and title-truncated) adaptation of the Ntozake Shange play — or “choreopoem,” as it’s generally referred to — For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, with an ensemble including Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington, Loretta Devine, Phylicia Rashad, Kimberly Elise and Anika Noni Rose.
