South Park's Most Outrageous Episodes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pre-Comedy Central

This animated short film, produced prior to the creation of South Park, explored the meaning of Christmas through an epic, bloody showdown between Santa Claus and Jesus. Small potatoes compared with the content of South Park's later episodes, but the film served as a great introduction to creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's twisted little town in Colorado.

(So ONTD, do you find South Park to be hilarious or horrendous?)

Ozzy Osbourne "Disgusted" With An Anti-Gay Church

Ozzy Osbourne
sounds ready to bite somebody's head off. The British rock god released a statement saying he was "disgusted" by a Kansas-based church's choice to play his music on the steps of the United States Supreme Court today.

"I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church,'" said Ozzy, referring to the iconic song off 1980's Blizzard of Ozz. And lest you think he was peeved about the organist playing Randy Rhoades' riff in the choir loft, read on...

Miami Police Department Thinks Jay-Z Looks Like a Gangbanger

Jay-Z is on the cover of this month's Forbes. But the Miami Police Department still thinks he looks like your typical member of a street gang.

The department's website had featured a large mural-esque banner depicting five tough-looking characters, including one holding a bat and one throwing up a gang sign, and the plea: "Report Gang Activity".

By our estimation, forty percent of the gang's population is Jay-Z.

Here's the banner:

Johnny Depp school mutiny - now with video!

Johnny Depp staged a cute publicity stunt yesterday, showing up at a south London school where a 9-year-old student had sent him a letter asking for help in staging a mutiny against her teachers:

"He said nine-year-old Beatrice had written to Captain Jack, asking him to lead a mutiny against her teachers.
Depp, 47, has been filming the latest instalment of the franchise in London.
After his arrival, a special school assembly was called and the film star - along with other members of the cast dressed in full costume - walked in.
Depp produced Beatrice's letter and performed for the children for 15 minutes.
But he told the schoolgirl that a mutiny might get them into trouble."

Constance McMillen getting a TV movie

The topic of gay teen bullying has dominated the media lately with news reports of five teen boys taking their lives last month alone after being harassed because of their sexual orientation. One of the rare cases where the bullying led to a happy ending -- the story of rural Mississipi lesbian high school student Constance McMillen who successfully sued the local school district for discrimination -- will become a TV movie for ABC Family. The project, in early stages of development, hails from Craig Zadan and Neil Meron and Sony Pictures TV who have optioned the rights to McMillen’s story. Ghost Whisperer creator/executive producer John Gray will write the script and is expected to direct.

In March, McMillen challenged the Itawamba County School District when it barred her from attending her prom because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date and wear a tuxedo. The district responded by canceling the prom, prompting the ACLU to file a lawsuit claiming the teen's rights had been violated. The flap led to a backlash by many of McMillen’s friends, their parents and the school board who turned against her. Because of the constant harassment, she had to pull out of her Itawamba Agricultural High School and finished her senior year at a school in Jackson, Miss. But McMillen's case quickly drew nationwide attention and she ended up receiving a $30,000 scholarship from Ellen DeGeneres, serving as a grand marshal for New York's Gay Pride Parade and attending a reception at the White House hosted by President Barack Obama. She also recently won a $35,000 settlement in the lawsuit against her school district, with the district agreeing to follow a non-discrimination policy.

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: Grown-up Daniel casts a chilling spell

Daniel Radcliffe stroked his fake sideburns  -  and the real stubble on his chin  -  and walked towards the cameras, as shooting began on his first post-Harry Potter role.

The 21-year-old actor is the star of the big screen version of Susan Hill's Gothic ghost story The Woman In Black  -  which also happens to be the first Hammer film production shot in England for 35 years.

Daniel plays solicitor Arthur Kipps, a widower sent to collate the papers of a deceased client who lived in a remote mansion, surrounded by marshland and accessible only by a causeway.

'It's my first grown-up role,' the actor told me, noting that he was barely 17 when he made the televison film My Boy Jack.

Nikki Reed post

OK! caught up with Nikki Reed last night, and the Twilight beauty dished on all the details of Breaking Dawn filming! First stop — not Vancouver. “We’re heading to New Orleans first, in just over a week,” Nikki told OK! exclusively at the Swatch New Gents launch. She also shared some set traditions and what her co-stars enjoy when they have a break from shooting!

So first stop is Louisiana and from the sound of it Nikki is exciting for a good “set” cooked meal from co-star Peter Facinelli!

“Well Peter’s like a chef – a super chef. He makes a mean pasta with a vodka sauce,” Nikki shares. “Everyone is so different and the nice thing is we spend a fair amount of time apart even when we’re working, so it never gets weird or funny. Jackson brings his whole band when we’re shooting and they do their thing, Elizabeth and I go to the gym and do fun stuff like that.”

So what about Kristen Stewart?

“Kristen does her thing,” Nikki told OK!.

I very strongly dislike almost everything to do with Twilight.. but I really like Nikki. She's really pretty and she just seems great.

Why It Was Right To Show Teen Mom Amber Physically Attacking Ex-Fiance Gary!

When I watched the Sept. 28 episode of Teen Mom in which troubled teen mom Amber Portwood slapped, punched and kicked baby daddy, Gary Shirley in front of their daughter Leah, I was horrified!

How could MTV have shown such a disturbing scene? Amber is physically and emotionally abusive to her much larger ex-fiance Gary.
She slaps him hard, throws a solid punch to his head and then kicks him in the back as he flees down the stairs.

But the emotional abuse is almost worse. She calls him a fat piece of sh*t,” trash,” and if that weren’t enough, she tells him, “Shut your f*cking mouth,” and a lot more.

It’s disgusting and disturbing. And this all takes place in front of innocent little daughter 23-month-old Leah, who is walking around at her feet.

At first I felt MTV was irresponsible to air this scene of domestic abuse. And especially since the pair is now the subject of a domestic violence investigation in their home state of Indiana. Child Protective Services is also investigating whether baby Leah is safe with the couple.

Now, however, after talking to domestic abuse experts, reality show producers, image consultants and reading Amber’s apology, I’ve changed my mind.

I believe MTV was right to air the disturbing footage!

What do you think, ONTD? Should the footage have been shown? Should a producer have stopped it?

Nurse Jackie Scoop: 'KYLE XY' beauty cast as [spoiler alert!]

I see an emergency Adderall refill in a certain harried nurse’s future, and here’s why: Kyle XY beauty Jaimie Alexander is checking into Nurse Jackie for a sizeable arc as Jackie’s (Edie Falco) wild, immature sister-in-law.

Alexander’s character, Tunie—who will appear in at least four episodes of the Showtime dramedy’s upcoming third season—is Kevin’s (Dominic Fumusa) never-before-seen younger sibling.

In the final moments of Jackie‘s second season, Falco’s increasingly unhinged title character found herself at the center of an intervention staged by her husband and BFF Eleanor (the awesome Eve Best). In other words, probably not the best time for an unannounced visit from an annoying relative.

Gay Arab pokes at prejudices in Israel's version of 'The Office'

Put an Israeli Arab, a Jewish settler and a large man with no tact in the same room and you can see the sparks fly. Put it on television and you can call it comedy.

Israel is the latest country to see the "The Office" -- or "HaMisrad" -- on its TV screens. The hit British comedy originally penned by Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant has spawned spin-off series across the world, including in the U.S. where it starred comedian Steve Carell.

The Hebrew version shares much with the British original like the awkward car-crash moments when personalities collide in an office -- but with one basic difference.

"The Israeli culture is almost opposite [to British culture]," says Uzi Weill, the screenwriter who adapted the UK version for an Israeli audience.

"Where the British would be embarrassed, the Israeli would be embarrassing. The British would be reserved, the Israeli would just say it flat to your face."

Anderson Cooper Slams Vince Vaughn's Use Of 'That's So Gay'

Anderson Cooper has spoken out against Vince Vaughn’s pejorative use of “that’s so gay” the trailer for his new film, The Dilemma.

In the film, Vince plays a man who learns that his best friend’s wife is having an affair.

“I was sitting in a movie theater over the weekend and there was a preview of [Vince Vaughn's new] movie, and in it, the actor said, ‘that’s so gay,’ and I was shocked that not only that they put it in the movie, but that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it,” Anderson said (watch at about 5:45 in the video).

“I just find those words, those terms - we’ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable ’cause those words are hurting kids,” he added.

“Someone else I talked to recently said that the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue. When you’re a kid, it can change the way you see yourself and the way you think about yourself - the worth that you give to yourself. I think we really need to focus on what language we’re using and how we’re treating these kids.”

Deathly Hallows Pt. I NOT IN 3-D

Warner Bros. has scuttled plans to release the new "Harry Potter" in 3D.

In a statement released Friday, the studio said that when "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I" arrives in theaters on Nov. 19, it will be in 2D, playing both conventional theaters and IMAX, but that "we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window."

The statement continued: "Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey."

Director David Yates adds: "This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first."

Recent 2D-to-3D conversion have been controversial, with many fans and critics complaining about the look of the studio's "Clash of the Titans," which underwent a similar conversion and was released earlier this year.

50 Upcoming Movie Remakes (Yep, 50!)

Whenever a movie studio announces plans for another remake, the reaction among fans and pundits is always the same: Hollywood doesn’t have any new ideas.

But we like to look on the bright side of things, which is why we’re so happy when we hear of a cool remake or reboot. Hey, who needs new ideas when there are already so many great old ideas waiting to be rediscovered?

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 50 — that’s right, 50! — upcoming Hollywood remakes that tickle our fancy. Because if these films were good the first time, you never know, you might just enjoy them even more the second time around.

Attached: Kenny Wormald, Andie MacDowell, Dennis Quaid
Status: Director Craig Brewer is no stranger to big screen musicals: his indie smash “Hustle & Flow” earned two Academy Award nominations. He’s already faced his share of obstacles with “Footloose,” though; after headliners Zac Efron and Chace Crawford both dropped out of the lead role, Brewer had to turn to his third choice, Kenny Wormald, star of MTV’s “Dancelife.” Still no word yet on whether Kevin Bacon will make an appearance in the film or not.

This list makes me so f-ing furious and I hate everyone involved with any of these.

WTF: FOX News reporter arrested for sexual assault on a child

Charles Leaf, Fox reporter and accused child molester, left.

Award-winning Fox 5 news reporter Charles Leaf was charged with sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl at his Wyckoff home, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said.

Leaf is being held in the Bergen County Jail on $250,000 bail and will be arraigned on Nov. 4 in Wyckoff Municipal Court.

Leaf, 41, faces charges of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. The child is an acquaintance, according to authorities.

Leaf, the married father of two children and an ex-Marine, joined the station in 2006 and is the station’s investigative and general-assignment reporter who has covered national stories, including the Bernard Madoff scandal and the proposed development of a mosque near the World Trade Center site, according to his résumé on myfoxny.com.

A spokesperson for the station said Fox 5 was aware of the situation and was reviewing it.

Keira Knightley says she's finally overcome her insecurities

Keira Knightley has said that she has only now started to believe in herself and that she is finally overcoming her insecurities.

Actress Keira Knightley has been given her share of top roles yet the young star has revealed that she has had to deal with self doubt.

The 25-year-old, who has worked alongside Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom and been in such films as hit Love Actually, hasn't always believed in her own abilities.

She said: "It's taken me time to overcome my own doubts and insecurities. It's been my nature not to want to believe in my own success and that I don't deserve my success. But that's something I've fought to overcome."

Keira also says she still gets nervous before her scenes and explains that the "terror" is still sometimes there but she tries not to put too much pressure on herself.

EXCLUSIVE: Julia Ormond is playing Vivien Leigh after Catherine Zeta-Jones dropped out, and Dougray Scptt is playing Arthur Miller. Filming starts today in London on the feature, which is shooting for 7 weeks at Pinewood and on location in and around the city. Michelle Williams is cast as Marilyn Monroe alongside Kenneth Branagh (Laurence Oliver), Judi Dench (Dame Sybil Thorndike), Dominic Cooper, Emma Watson and Derek Jacobi with Eddie Redmayne playing Colin Clark, the young assistant on the set of the 1956 film The Prince and the Showgirl who helped the star escape her pressure-cooker Hollywood career for a brief week. Directed by Simon Curtis (BBC TV’s Cranford) and produced by David Parfitt (Shakespeare In Love), the film is based on Clark’s diaries and has been adapted for the screen by Adrian Hodges. Parfitt’s Trademark Films is the production company, while The Weinstein Company is financing and distributing.

Insane faux-feminist site Jezebel organized an online petition to help save Huge, the ABC Family show about kids at fat camp. Nikki responded to offer her thanks, and agreed to answer a few questions.

(Questions are in bold italics, I've bolded the highlights of her responses)

Nikki: I just want to start off by thanking you so much for starting the petition. It just means so much to me. I can't even express in words how much it means. If you were here I would hug you and squeeze you to death.

Dodai: Well I just really love the show. I don't know if the petition will do anything, but I had to try, because I am such a big fan. And I'm sad that it's not going to continue.

Nikki: The entertainment industry thinks they know what we want. But when people — teenagers — stand up and say, 'We're tired of seeing of this on TV, we want this' — hopefully the networks will start paying attention and start saying, 'Well, maybe we should finally give them what they want, instead of what we think they want. '
The fans reaching out — the signatures on the petition — and the fact that it's in the media that people are fighting for this show to come back, I think that's just incredible.

Trailer for "Blue Valentine"

The timing couldn't be better/worse, but fresh off receiving an NC-17 rating from the MPAA the scandalous and filthy trailer for the cesspool of iniquity that is "Blue Valentine" has arrived.

Of course, we're joking, and the spot for the film starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams is actually a pretty nifty impression of the movie. Over Ryan Gosling warbling the standard "You Always Hurt The One You Love," the brief spot shows up flashes of the relationship profiled in the film during its peaks and valleys. It's a great teaser, and there will surely be a meatier trailer down the line.

We saw the film at Cannes and TIFF and were impressed both times. Directed by Derek Cianfrance, its one of the most bracing and real looks at a relationship in a downward spiral you will ever see. But it's also pretty funny and charming as well. The film will hit theaters on December 31st. But if the prudes at the MPAA have their way, the number of screens in ends up hitting might be greatly reduced if their ridiculous and reactionary rating remains standing.

Kathryn Erbe Joins D'Onofrio On L&O:CI Hope Y'All Are Happy Now

Reunited and it feels so… absolutely perfect.

Kathryn Erbe will be rejoining ex-partner Vincent D’Onofrio for the 10th and final season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, a USA Network spokesperson confirms.

News of Erbe’s freshly-inked deal comes roughly three weeks after D’Onofrio announced his own return to the show.

“I’m excited and grateful that Katie has decided to rejoin one of the best detective teams in the history of television,” said exec producer Dick Wolf in a statement.

D’Onofrio and Erbe left CI at the beginning of the show’s ninth season. They were replaced by Jeff Goldblum and Saffron Burrows.

CI‘s eight episode farewell season premieres sometime in 2011.

Reaction? Considering this is what more than 98 percent of you were clamoring for, I’m guessing you’re pretty psyched.


Teen mom Amber not dating sex offender?

Chalk it up to a case of mistaken identity.

Though it was reported Thursday that Teen Mom's Amber Portwood is dating convicted child sex offender Christopher Glen Hossman, a source tells UsMagazine.com that the man "is not the 'Chris' featured on Teen Mom."

The "Chris" featured on the hit MTV show has had a brush with the law however.

On a recent episode, she asked "Chris" what he did before they met. He revealed that he had served time -- but never explained why.

"I got into trouble and I got caught, and they put me on work-release," he told her. "It's like a jail where you get to go out and work and you have to go back."

Portwood told Us she wasn't bothered by his past.

"I try to give everyone a second chance and look into their hearts," she said. "I wouldn't have even given him a chance if he was still into drugs or doing anything like that. I wasn’t okay with his history in jail, but I can’t judge him just by that, because if that was the case, there's plenty in my past that I could be judged on."

is kristen bell joining NBC's "Munsters" remake?

Talk about putting the Vania before Transyl: NBC and Pushing Daisies mastermind Bryan Fuller are in the very early stages of developing a reboot of the creepshow classic The Munsters, but there’s already a fervent fan movement under way to get Kristen Bell cast as Marilyn. And one of those fans is Fuller himself!

“Are you kidding me?” he enthuses of the Veronica Mars powerhouse. “Kristen would be perfect.”

Coincidentally, Fuller says the Munster clan’s “plain” cousin will be much more pivotal than she was in the ’60s original. “She is our eyes into the world,” he explains, “in the sense that we all can relate to our families exhibiting some level of monstrous behavior.” (Also playing a larger role: Eddie’s pet dragon, Spot.)

Fuller plans to fashion his Munsters update as a cross between Modern Family and True Blood. “This version has teeth and isn’t afraid to use them,” he says with a laugh. “For example, the story begins when young Eddie unexpectedly manifests as a werewolf on a scout camping trip and inadvertently eats two of his fellow scouts.” Sounds yummy!

Thoughts? Do you agree that the role of Marilyn has my beloved KB written all over it? Weigh in below!

Britney spears album update


Britney Spears’
managers spoke to the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, most likely to discuss the success of her recent record-breaking Glee episode, but they also revealed some details about her forthcoming album (due “early next year”) and addressed on her noticeable absence from the spotlight.

“It’s not a comeback”, insists Larry Rudolph, the manager who discovered Speares as a teen and who still guides her career. “She’s an iconic artist, She’s like Madonna, she’s here to stay”.

To be fair Spears hasn’t exactly been hiding out, her Circus tour was the 5th highest grossing of 09′. But compared with the days when she shocked the world by canoodling with pythons and Madonna on MTV, she’s been keeping a low profile. In fact her apperarance on Glee could be her biggest national exposure since the breakdown in 08′. Rudolph explains her relative absence from the pop culture conversation: “She just wanted to spend a year getting back to basics, being a mom. But now she’s moving into a new album cycle”.

Adam Leber then goes on to discuss Britney’s next album, promising an all new sound from Spears.

That new album arriving as soon as early next year, will introduce a fresh, “progressive” sound from Spears, according to the stars manager Adam Leber. “It’ll be a departure from what you’ve heard,” he promises.

For the most part, Britney has kept a similar sound throughout her career, only ever drastically diverting from her successful formula for 2007′s Blackout. Going by Adam’s comments, and taking into account the A-list array of producers like William Orbit that Britney has been working with, and it seems that we could be getting an all new sound for 2011.

Meanwhile TMZ delivered a short-and-sweet exclusive on Britney this week, revealing that she’s wrapped up three new songs for her album and “she loves ‘em”.

George Harrison's Doppelganger Debuts New Song

It seems multi-instrumentalist Ben Harper has discovered the perfect process to break a new album. After years on the road promoting numerous solo releases and albums alongside the Innocent Criminals and Relentless 7, Haper has taken a slightly different approach for his new band, Fistful of Mercy. First, form a super group with the son of a legendary artist (Dhani Harrison), break two new tracks (“I’m a Lot Cooler Than You Think” and “In Vain or True”) on NBC’s heavily watched Parenthood, and then before heading out on an international tour, perform alongside other greats like Eddie Vedder, and now The Roots. The strategy is working, because the trio’s debut As I Call You Down peaked our interests.

Unlike many acts who play the same two or three songs during promotional appearances, Fistful of Mercy have already made live-debuts of nearly all 9 tracks off the album via media outlets. The trend continued when Harper, Harrison, Joseph Arthur, and violinist Jessy Green made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. With a little help from The Roots, the group performed the knee-slapper “Father’s Son”. As usual, Harper makes bluegrass and the lap guitar more approachable to a broader audience. But, in no way is Harper the “leader”of this group. Much like Harrison’s father’s side-project The Traveling Wilburys, each member delivers their talents revealing an unmistakable synergy.

At this point I’m convinced Fallon has the most amazing music coordinator ever and/or every touring band just wants to make an appearance with The Roots. As I Call You Down dropped October 5th, so go pick it up!



George thanks you for your time.

Unfortunate Looking Kid from Two and a Half Men Scores a Huge Deal

'Two and a Half Men' -- Kid Scores MASSIVE Contract

While most 16-year-olds are scrounging around for minimum wage jobs ... the kid from "Two and a Half Men" just locked up a brand new contract worth $300,000 per episode ... TMZ has learned.

Angus T. Jones -- who plays Charlie Sheen's nephew Jake Harper on the show -- signed a minumum 26 episode deal on May 12, 2010 ... which means dude will make $7.8 mil over the next two seasons ... plus a $500,000 signing bonus.

That's just the minumium he's guaranteed. The reality is ... CBS has guaranteed 48 episodes over the next two seasons, which means Angus would pocket $14.4 mil total, plus that $500,000 signing bonus.

Right around the time Jones inked his deal ... Charlie Sheen signed a contract worth $2 mil an episode ... which translates to $52 mil over the next two seasons.

With bonuses and whatnot, Charlie will pull in more than $98 million.

Because Jones is a minor, his contract had to be approved by an L.A. County Superior Court judge ... who makes less in a year than Jones makes in a week.

By the way -- today is ATJ's 17th birthday ... he should probably go buy himself something nice.

The Newest Botched Face!

So sad! Experts explain how Daryl Hannah is the latest star to suffer from a botched face from too much plastic surgery! Daryl Hannah, 49 year-old actress of Kill Bill and Steel Magnolias fame, looks a lot different than she did when she burst on to the scene in the 1982 classic sci-fi film, Blade Runner. Hollywoodlife.com consulted with top plastic surgeons who believe Daryl has had not only fillers in her lips and cheeks, but also think she had a nose job!

Many stars opt for plastic surgery as they get older, but sadly, some go too far and surgeons we talked to believe Daryl falls into that category.

“Her face looks much rounder, everything about her face used to be much thinner, cheeks, jaw line, nasal labal lines, everything was much more pronounced,” Dr. Richard Fleming, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon told us. “In my opinion there’s a lot more fullness and it’s not a natural contour. I have no idea what they did, but there is filler material in there.”

Dr. Adam Schaffner, a New York plastic surgeon, came to the same conclusion: Daryl’s had so much work done, her face is totally changed.

“It appears there has been additional fullness to the mid-face. It could have been with any sort of filler material like juvederm,” he said. He also believes Daryl may have had a nose job and said, “It could be lighting and makeup, but in [the more recent picture] her nose looks different.”

What do YOU think? Has Daryl had too much work done? What Hollywood star has had the worst plastic surgery job?

Mmmmaatttttttttttt Dammmmmooon! & Ben Affleck to reunite on-screen

It's been six years since Matt Damon and Ben Affleck appeared on-screen together -- although it's been nine years since they've co-starred in a movie anyone saw. But cameos in "Jersey Girl" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" aside, the best buddies are actually planning to reunite for the first time since the Oscar winning "Good Will Hunting" with "The Trade," a real life story of two Yankee pitchers from the 1970's who swapped wives.

md and ba

No shock here that this scandalous tale would come from boys who are lifelong members of Red Sox Nation -- although Ben promises there won't be any cheap shots. "It's a pre-Steinbrenner Yankees, so it's a different club," Ben told MTV News, before finding himself incapable of adding, "as an institution, disdain.

Although the final pieces of the puzzle have yet to fall into place -- Ben is still rewriting the script with brother Casey -- the intention is that Matt & Ben would both be involved, either in starring or directing capacities.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck swapping wives? Where/when is this casting call? Also, I hope that Casey Affleck stars in it too. I'd love me a Boston threesome...

'The Office': Details on Dunder Mifflin's 'Glee' viewing party

"Glee" is becoming so pervasive in pop culture that even fictional characters are getting way into the show. Fictional characters like the employees of "The Office."

The NBC show's Nov. 11 episode will revolve around the Dunder Mifflin crew going to a "Glee" viewing party. Zap2it talked with executive producer Paul Lieberstein to get the lowdown on the episode (news of which was broken by EW.com).

"Gabe [Zach Woods] is hosting it, and it's mostly thrown by Erin [Ellie Kemper], who would like the office -- and particularly Michael [Steve Carell] -- to like Gabe a little more," Lieberstein tells us. "So she thinks this will make him a little more popular if he hosts the party."

So which character is the biggest Gleek? Lieberstein says it's probably Kelly (Mindy Kaling): "Although she claims to hate the show, she knows everything about it. And Oscar [Oscar Nunez] feels like everyone should stop assuming he's a big Gleek because he's gay."

Lieberstein says that "Glee" creators Ian Brennan, Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy signed off on the idea, so viewers will watch the characters watching scenes from an episode of the FOX show. NBC executives "weren't thrilled," Lieberstein says, but they didn't stand in the show's way.

"They're always so supportive and creatively understanding that when we get really excited about something, they let us do it," he says.

As for why the show chose "Glee," Lieberstein says it's because "it's not just a popular show, but a phenomenon, you know? And when we had the idea to do a viewing party, it felt like there was no substitute. ...

"We watch a lot of TV, we watch 'Glee.' We like it. ... I don't know -- someone said the words '"Glee" viewing party,' and it just made us laugh so hard that we had to do it."

Hipster Says What?


Though still grappling with his father’s murder, Sean Lennon has found a way to make music again—in partnership with model and girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl.

As the couple release their new album, the author finds them laughing at the cliché. ther performers crave recognition, but the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono just wanted to avoid it. “Fame is what I was born with, and it was a nightmare being a child,” says Sean Lennon, who was five years old when his father was gunned down in front of their Manhattan apartment building, the Dakota, in 1980. “I had bodyguards; I was followed home from school. I never wanted to be famous; I only wanted to be a musician. I was doing it as a way to connect with my father—trying to fill the void he left when he disappeared. The more I played music, the more I felt I had a piece of him inside me.”

Although Sean spent his childhood making music with his mother, his aversion to notoriety intensified when he released his own album at 22. “I was very young and naïve, and I was thrown to the sharks,” he says. “People treated it as if I was coming out as a pop star. They really misunderstood me, and I got cold feet, so I retreated and became a professional sideman instead of pursuing a solo career.”

He’s now ready to test the spotlight again. Autumn brings his 35th birthday—on October 9, a birth date he shares with his father, who would have been 70 this year—and the release of Acoustic Sessions, the first album by the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Sean’s two-person band with Charlotte Kemp Muhl, a 23-year-old model with luminous porcelain skin and such pillowy lips she could be the offspring of Mick Jagger and Angelina Jolie. In a collaboration so enmeshed it recalls the epic mind meld of John and Yoko, Charlotte is Sean’s girlfriend, writing partner, and fellow musician, singing intricate harmonies and playing everything from accordion and glockenspiel to acoustic bass, banjo, piano, cello, vibraphone, recorder, melodica, and shakers on the album. Even the band’s name was Charlotte’s creation—the title of a play she wrote when she was seven. The couple met five years ago at California’s Coachella music festival. “I had a premonition,” Sean recalls. “I saw her and whispered to my friend, ‘I really think that girl is going to be my girlfriend.’ ”

Kelis AOL Sessions Interview

"It's been honestly the most fun I've had in music in a long time" -- says Kelis in advance of her AOL Sessions recording.

Four years is a long time in pop music, and Kelis, for one, is no slouch. Since her 2006 album, 'Kelis Was Here', she's been taking time away to appreciate the finer things in life, from becoming a chef to having a son. The time's also been crucial for the singer to get back a sense of fun and joy in music-making. With new LP, 'Flesh Tone', motherhood and sensuality are served up and celebrated in equal measure, while European dance producers David Guetta and Benny Benassi bring house and electro sounds to back up that unmistakeably husky vocal. From the hypnotic 'Acapella' to the hands-in-the-air electro of '4th of July (Fireworks)' Kelis' AOL Session is a vibrant, visually stunning performance, proving that with 'Flesh Tone', Kelis really is having the time of her life.

Gap Unveils New Logo, Logos Take Feud To Twitter

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Earlier this week, Gap unveiled a new logo on its website. Gone were the white letters on a blue background. In their place was an oddly amateurish effort that looks like a placeholder for a B2B e-commerce startup in stealth mode, or as a designer put it, "like somebody took Microsoft's PowerPoint and kind of did it in five minutes flat."

Long-time brand adherents were appalled. And emerging from the PR wreckage came two new Twitter accounts, both created within hours of the logo's unveiling: @GapLogo and @OldGapLogo. Both Tweet as the voices of the respective logos.

@GapLogo already has thousands of followers, and Gap's PR people were forced to tell Ad Age that they were "tracking" the parody accounts.
