Batman Fwee Cat

New York Comic Con Day 3

For the final day there were so many give aways. Not many people were dressing up and the kids came out in full force. Cartoon Network had something really cute planned for them and gave them grab bags. I actually went to the signings early but certain celebs had it in their contract that we couldn't take any photos of them (matt Lanter) and some we couldn't take posed photos. For those of you that went I hope you had a blast.

Katy Perry: Russell Brand is the funniest man in the world

Loved-up katy perry thinks her fiance Russell Brand is hilarious

We all know how stomach-achingly hilarious Russell Brand can be and it seems no one knows this more than his wife-to-be Katy Perry.
'I Kissed a Girl' starlet Katy perry, who is set to wed the British comedian the next few weeks, says Russell Brand is "brilliant" and never fails to make her chuckle.

She gushed: "I think he is the funniest man in the world. He is brilliant. People should not have a problem with him. Russell Brand is awesome!"

The 25-year-old beauty has also described how
she had to change her name from Katy Hudson after people kept asking if she was related to Hollywood actress of the same name.

Katy said: "Living in Los Angeles there can only be one Kate Hudson. People kept asking me if I was her less famous sister. It was weird and stupid so I changed my surname to Perry as that is my mum's maiden name."


It's all downhill from here, sry2say.

supermodel lara stone wants gay babies; loves antm

Lara Stone was interviewed in the latest Vogue UK (along with a stunning photoshoot & cover). Here is a preview

Lara Stone had more free time than usual this show season — she walked exclusively for Calvin Klein — and she tells British Vogue in the magazine's November 2010 cover story that she's not interested in raising her profile. "I don't think people on the street recognize me ever. And I like that. If I wanted to be recognized every five minutes, I'd hire a publicist." In fact, the British press has kept a reasonable distance from Stone and her new husband David Walliams lately — "We've got a court order," she explains.

Stone says she's happiest "vegging out in front of America's Next Top Model." When asked if the show has taught her any modelling tips, she deadpans: "Smizing," referring to Tyra Banks's abbreviation for "smiling with your eyes." "I'm good at that," she adds.

She's been alcohol-free for a year and a half now, and as for smoking: "I'm planning to quit tomorrow, I've had enough!" She plans to kick it "through willpower. It's a bit worrying though — if you don't drink and smoke any more, there's nothing . . . " And now that she's married, are children in the future? "Not yet. But I would love to have children some day. I'd like little gay boys. That would be good. I'm terrified of having a little girl. Girls are more evil than boys. And then they have boyfriends." She corrects herself: "Of course, I'd be happy to have a girl."

“I wrote a book, so it goes to show you that anyone can write a book if they have an idea,” says Hilary Duff, who’s not exactly “anyone.” The newlywed, 23-year-old pop singer, “Lizzie McGuire” star and fashion designer just came out with “Elixir” (Simon & Schuster), the young-adult novel she wrote with Elise Allen.

It has everything: romance and the supernatural; a globe-trotting Hillary Clinton-esque mom; characters with names like Sage and Clea . . . and a shout-out to Page Six.

“Some people wondered if young readers would understand what Page Six was,” Duff tells The Post’s Barbara Hoffman. “I said, ‘Of course they will — it’s a Bible for young people!’ ” Expect to see lots of them at the Borders at Columbus Circle tomorrow at 5 p.m. for Duff’s book-signing. Here’s what’s in her library.

But more fucking importantly, as you all read earlier Hilary Duff finally got a twitter, most likely due to the fact that I told Haylie when I met her to tell Hilary to get a twitter! lol but follow her it was just announced 11 hours ago that she got a twitter and she is already at 21,000 followers!! Oh and don't forget to watch her tomorrow morning on The Today Show around 8:30!

JWoww Down for a Little TNA ... Wrestling

If JWoww is looking for a fight ... JWoww is gonna get a fight -- TMZ has learned the "Jersey Shore" starlet has just signed a deal with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. 

Sources close to the deal tell us JWoww -- real name Jenni Farley -- just signed a one-night deal to appear on Spike TV's "TNA impact!" on Thursday. 

We're told JWoww doesn't have a match scheduled ... but she'll "probably be mixing it up" with a couple of Jersey Shore-alike wrestlers named Robbie E. and Cookie. 

But JWoww ain't doin' the wrestling thing for free -- we're told she's pulling in a cool $15 grand for the night ... and the two sides are working out a deal to get her to come back to the show. 

... and to think, Snooki didn't get a dime when she got hit on television.

Actress Rosamund Pike 'Devastated' By Ex's New Marriage

A love story gone awry is making headlines across the pond, and involves Paul Giamatti's co-star in 'Barney's Version,' Rosamund Pike.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail claims that Pike ('Die Another Day,' 'An Education') -- whose wedding to director Joe Wright was abruptly called off in 2008 -- was completely taken by suprise when she learned recently that Wright and acclaimed sitar musician Anoushka Shankar quietly married last month.

Shankar, 29 (half-sister of Grammy winner Norah Jones, and daughter of sitar superstar Ravi Shankar) is reportedly pregnant, and due in the spring.

"'Ros was devastated when she found out as she hadn't been told," an insider tells the British news outlet. "It was quite different to the big wedding she had planned with Joe."

Wright, 37, became engaged to Pike, 31, after directing her in the role of Kiera Knightley's sister in 'Pride & Prejudice,' but he allegedly called off the nuptials when he learned that his bride-to-be had mailed out cheeky invitations depicting the pair in a hot tub, without getting his okay first.

So was Pike's ex trying to keep his new marriage hush-hush? Reportedly, the new bride merely wanted to keep things simple: "Anoushka believes a wedding is a spiritual affair," the Daily Mail's source says. "She had no interest in a media circus."

Lindsay Lohan: Thanks Dad, You Created This

Lindsay Lohan is doing a lot of thinking at Betty Ford, and she's already reached one big conclusion -- she's in the mess she's in largely because of daddy Michael Lohan.

Some of Lindsay's friends and relatives tell us ... LiLo is spending a lot of time talking to counselors about the path that led her to drug and alcohol addiction. And she's convinced the nightmare of growing up in such a dysfunctional family has taken its toll.

Lindsay repeatedly talks about allegations Dina made in her divorce papers ... that Michael abused her. Lindsay says she witnessed it firsthand, and it's still tough to deal with. In particular, Lindsay claims she had to step in and protect her mother from Michael. Michael has denied allegations of physical abuse.

Our sources say Lindsay talks a lot about growing up with a dad who was periodically behind bars. Add to that -- she moved out to L.A. at a very young age, with almost no parental supervision.

And, Lindsay believes, the tabloid scrutiny of her life has taken its toll. And that's just scratching the surface ...

Screech -- 3rd Foreclosure's the Charm

Dustin Diamond's facing foreclosure for the third time in five years -- dude's bank just filed new legal docs claiming the former "Saved by the Bell" star owes over $278,000 on his Wisconsin home.

Screech had his first foreclosure scare in 2006 -- when he allegedly fell behind $250,000 on his mortgage payments. It all happened again a few months ago in April -- except according to Wells Fargo Bank, Screech's debt had ballooned to $290,000.

Now, the foreclosure monster is rearing its ugly head yet again -- Wells Fargo just filed more foreclosure papers in Wisconsin, claiming DD is still in default, owing $278,309 since May ... and now the bank is tightening the screws for realsies.

WF wants to recoup their losses stat -- demanding immediate foreclosure on Screech's property. So far, no word from the goateed one. Zoiks!


Roxanne Pallett's movie career not off to the best start

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

From Celebslam: "Roxanne Pallett used to star on the British soap opera Emmerdale. She left the show in 2008 hoping to break through in Hollywood. Um, she sorta did. I guess. Here's some screenshots from her very first film, the made-for-late-night-TV thriller Lake Placid 3. Also starring the very-underrated Nils Hognestad and Velizar Binev (actually, I have no clue who those guys are -- I've just found that it makes me sound like I know what the hell I'm talking about when I call actors no one has ever heard of before "underrated"), Lake Placid 3 tells the tale of a killer crocodile who terrorizes the residents of a quaint lakeside community. Not many people know this, but Katherine Hepburn actually got her big break in Hollywood when she was cast in a low budget film about a killer alligator -- and we all know how her career turned out. Nah, I'm kidding. You're career is totally screwed, Roxanne."

This Year’s Documentary Oscar Race

With the long-awaited release of Inside Job and the approaching release of Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, most of the major contenders for this year’s Best Documentary Oscar will soon be in theaters.

Sports Night: Bored and Waiting

t-bag lives

Talk about a no-brainer: Former Prison Break producers Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora are courting Robert Knepper to appear in their new A&E fugitive-themed drama Breakout Kings. The best part? The plan is for Knepper to resurrect his classic PB convict T-Bag!

According to sources, execs at 20th Century Fox — the studio behind Prison and Kings — have signed off on the crossover. Now a deal just needs to be hammered out with Knepper, whose killer PB alter ego was sent back to the slammer in the show’s series finale.

Kings, which is described as an “action-packed ensemble drama following an unconventional partnership between the U.S. Marshals’ office and a group of convicts as they work to catch fugitives on the run,” received an 11th hour reprieve last spring from A&E after Fox opted not to pick it up. It’s set to premiere in early 2011.

"Doctor Who" to film in the US for the first time

Utah and the Oval Office will get a visit from Matt Smith and gang. Over the decades, the BBC's venerable "Doctor Who" has journeyed across space and time, but the immortal doctor has never shot an episode on American soil. Well, change has come to the BBC.

The BBC announced today that season six of "Doctor Who" will contain a special two-parter that will shoot scenes in incentive friendly Utah. Penned by series show runner and lead writer Steven Moffat, the network reveals the '60s set storyline will begin in the Utah desert and go all the way to the White House.

Production on the first two episodes of this season will begin in Cardiff and then stars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will travel to the states in November to film key scenes for the two-parter. Broken into two parts, season six will debut on BBC America in the spring and finish up in the fall. Season five delivered record ratings for the startup network which has had a number of creative breakthroughs over the past year.

In a statement from the BBC, Moffatt said, "The Doctor has visited every weird and wonderful planet you can imagine, so he was bound get round to America eventually! And of course every Doctor Who fan will be jumping up and down and saying he’s been in America before. But not for real, not on location - and not with a story like this one! Oh, you wait!”

"Doctor Who" fans won't have to wait until the spring to get their tardis fix, however. the "Doctor Who Christmas Special" will air this holiday season with guest stars Michael Gambon (aka Dumbledore of "Harry Potter") and U.K. Opera star Katherine Jenkins.

Beverly Hills Week Is Here!

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' warn fans to gear up for drama

The drama is coming to the 90210. That is, according to the cast of Bravo’s new show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“Drama of course, excitement, fashion. A lot of strong women coming together and God only knows what can happen,” said Richards, an actress and aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton.


“We don't disappoint. This is Beverly Hills, not New Jersey, but we're still six strong women and things happen. I'm not a bitch. I'm a strong person and I'm an honest person. I think overall, we had a lot of fun.  It was very stressful but it was fun. I think people are really going to love it,” she said

“You can expect all that you would expect from Beverly Hills. Sophistication, glamour, style, a lot of drama and just a peek into what it’s like to really be a woman who lives in Beverly Hills,” said Armstrong, a 38-year-old management consultant. “You’re going to get plenty of drama. I think the drama in Beverly Hills is a little different than New Jersey. We have our own special style, so it’s unique. We’re six strong women that are all used to getting our way so that equals drama.”

Oh and please don’t worry about Carey and Ryan and Shia and it all turning out a mess. It won’t. With some people it’s inevitable. You can feel it. And then in other cases, the impossibility of it is equally palpable. I just don’t see it for these two. Although, obviously, that would certainly give us a story. And maybe that’s the problem. It’s too easy. To see on the cover of some bullsh-t tabloid.

There was art and imagination to Carey and Shia when they hooked up. No one was calling for it. Aren’t those the best?

Teen Mom Amber 'Would Never Ever' Date A Sex Offender

In the days after Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was accused of dating a registered sex offender in a recent episode of the hit MTV show - RadarOnline.com was first to report that the young man featured on the program had been falsely identified as a pedophile, and now Amber's inner circle is coming to her defense.

"She would never ever [date a sex offender]!" said Carol Zizak, the mother of Gary Shirley - the father of Amber's little girl and also featured on the show. Although she had not heard the news, even if it was true, Carol said it could happen to anybody, "It's like if you meet someone on the street -- you don't know 100% who they are."

In last week's episode, Amber's date was identified only as "Chris" and several media outlets were quick to report that he was in fact Christopher Glen Hossman, 27, a registered sex offender in Madison County, Indiana. RadarOnline.com confirmed Amber's date was not in fact Hossman.

"Leah's happy, she smiles, she's god's gift to them," Carol added.

Hossman's on-again-off-again girlfriend, who only wanted to be identified as "Brenda," told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview last Friday that she watched Teen Mom, saw the episode in question, and that Amber's date was definitely not Hossman. "Brenda" also told RadarOnline.com that Hossman is now going to consult a lawyer over the case of mistaken identity.

Snooki Not Getting Solo Reality Show

Snookin' for love? Hardly.

Jersey Shore dynamo Snooki revealed that she is not getting a much-rumored reality show based on her search for a man.

"Let's clear this up kids," tweeted Snooki, "I did not get my own dating show and plus, I gotta man, I don't need anybody else."

In January of this year, Snooki revealed that she had offers from networks to pick up her own solo reality show, Snookin' for Love. However, it seems like either Snooki decided to never jump on those offers or her contract with MTV prevented her from getting her own reality show while she was still committed to Jersey Shore.

Joan Sutherland passes away

LONDON (Reuters) - Australian opera star Joan Sutherland, known by her legion of fans as "La Stupenda," has died in Switzerland aged 83.

Her family told the Sydney Morning Herald that the soprano, once described by Luciano Pavarotti as "the greatest voice of the century," died peacefully in the early hours of Sunday morning after suffering a long illness.

She died in Switzerland where she had retired to live near Montreux.

"She's a very important person all over the world, but for us this is our family and we're just trying to come to terms with this," her daughter-in-law Helen told the Australian daily.

One of the most gifted voices in opera. So sad to hear this. Whenever Marilyn Horne passes, I'll probably lose my shit. Have some youtube clips to educate yourself.

Joan Collins: ".. the public were "starved of gorgeous people"

For almost sixty years she has been a screen siren and even now at 77 is still the picture of youthful glamour. But in a scathing attack on modern stars Joan Collins has warned that the age of the classic Hollywood beauty is over. The Dynasty actress said now the public were ‘starved of gorgeous people’ compared to the golden age of film which was dominated by beauties such as Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly.

She added: "When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say, there aren’t that many good looking actresses around today. I mean, there’s Angelina Jolie and there’s... Angelina Jolie. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]."

Sneak Peek of MCR's "Na Na Na" Video!

Last week we got a look at some behind-the-scenes photos from My Chemical Romance's "Na Na Na" video, from their upcoming Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album (Nov. 22).

My Chemical Romance's "Na Na Na..." video, directed by Roboshobo and Gerard Way, takes place in a dusty desert -- perhaps a nod to America's historic Route 66 -- where something big is bound to happen. And today we've got exclusive behind-the-scenes video footage where we get to see the "Na Na Na" video come to life. The Killjoys are on the loose, wreaking havoc on the desert with rayguns, motorcycles, wheelchairs, child warriors with boom boxes, terrifying masks, and a go-go gung-ho desire to fight the naysayers using art as a weapon.

True, "Na Na Na"' features guns and blood, but the video seems to be more of a tongue-in-cheek game of cops and robbers on a quest for artistic and creative freedom than a vicious, violent statement.

How will "Na Na Na" end? We'll have to wait until Thursday, Oct. 14, when "Na Na Na" premieres, to find out.

Rihanna & Nicki Minaj Want It To Be Raining Men

Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, according to our sources, are working on an anthem that is sure to hit a gay club near you as soon as it's complete.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The new song is entitled 'Raining Men' and is supposed to sound nothing like the original, and is a little more uptempo than you'd expect from Rihanna, but we're sure that just by the title alone, it'll turn heads. Here's what Rihanna had to say:

She has a great buzz and she has a ‘thing’ to her. She is a star and that’s why people love her. She’s also really entertaining with her visual as well as her lyrics and she has a great melody. I’m really amazed that she can write like that. [Nicki] not only raps but she can write songs too. It was really easy actually. We were going back on forth with the texts on how we were going to get to do it because we were in two different places and had two opposite schedules.

You know I worked with her before on ‘Rated R‘ and she was just writing me some really good ballads and I couldn’t wait to work with her again and finally have her on my record. It’s a really fun song. It’s called ‘Raining Men’. No, nothing like the original. It’s quite up-tempo but kind of quirky and funny.”

Flowchart: Know Your Female Characters!

This incredible flowchart from Overthinking It breaks down the many clichés female characters fall into. Note to writers: The "Mama Bear" and "Vanilla Action Girl" do not count as "strong female characters."
Overthinking It's Mlawski writes that the infographic is a companion to her essay on why we need interesting characters who are female, rather than more one-dimensional women who brandish a sword or mouth off to the male protagonist to prove they're no damsel in distress.

While there are obviously many male tropes in pop culture as well, Mlawski says, "Hollywood has a significantly harder time writing non-stereotypical female characters than male ones, so I made this chart to help out." It seems most writers still haven't wrapped their heads around the Bechdel Test, but hopefully they'll find this picture easier to understand.

Prince of X Factor post

Aiden Grimshaw is glad he isn’t in One Direction

X Factor finalist Aiden Grimshaw has admitted that he is glad he wasn’t asked to join a group, as a way of progressing on the ITV show.

Boyband One Direction was put together by Simon Cowell at bootcamp, after Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zain Malik and Niall Horan all impressed him as solo singers, but not enough to make judges houses alone.

18 year old Aiden, admitted that he was glad to escape being put in a group and told Metro:

‘I’m glad I got through on my own. You want to do what you want to do and I know what I want to be. It’s not really in a band.’

Aiden also defended Cheryl Cole’s decision to drop Gamu Nhengu and choose Katie Waissel, Cher Lloyd and Rebecca Ferguson as her top three girls.

‘They are here for a reason. Cheryl thought they were sellable and they have talent. Cheryl wants to bring them forward,’ he said.

Most Random Celeb Catfight Ever: Alan Sugar Vs. Kirstie Allsopp…

We do love a good celebrity catfight, specially one that materialises right out of the blue such as this one did yesterday when Kirstie Allsopp decided to take a nasty dig at the Lord of all Lords – Lord Alan Sugar.

“Being asked whether I follow Alan Sugar. I worked with him on Sport Relief does The Apprentice. His behaviour was shockingly uncharitable” tweeted Location Location Location’s Kirstie Allsopp yesterday obviously not realising that Alan has one hell of an acid tongue that doesn’t stand for that kind of shit.

“What a Lying cow @KirstieMAllsopp was worst contestant in celeb apprentice ever having hissy fit all time very rude to Jacki Gold” said Lord Sugar. His tirade continued:

“Bloody cheek @KirstieMAllsopp was in celeb apprentice claims I was uncharitable lying cow, she was useless”

“More lies from @KirstieMAllsopp said I was hard on and rude to production people in celeb apprentice , she is too far up Emma Freud ar..

“@KirstieMAllsopp you are liar dont tweet lies about me by the way you were the worst celeb ever in celeb apprentice”

Remind us never ever to cross Alan Sugar will you?

P.s. We love you Lord Master Sugar.

Anyone watching The Apprentice this season?

Lauren Conrad Wants Her New Show To Be Like The September Issue

Lauren Conrad’s new MTV reality show won’t be a Hills redux. Gone are the grainy glammed-up montages of LA’s freeways, Conrad says her new show will be filmed more like a “documentary.” “The Hills was shot with three or four cameras; things like entrances and exits were reshot; and if there were sound issues, we were asked to repeat what we just said,” LC tells Teen Vogue in her cover story. “This show is going to have a smaller crew, and they’ll just be following us around. It’s going to have a rougher feel, but I think the end result is going to be more true.” (Right…)

Her inspiration? The September Issue. The show will focus on her new line, Paper Crown, which, Conrad says, will be all about “really great fits, fabrics, and details. It won’t be overly trendy—nothing that’s trying too hard.”

But don’t expect any Conrad-Wintour similarities beyond their proclivity for oversized sunnies. LC’s built her brand on being nice, and it’s working. She’s on the cover of Teen Vogue this month, and just last month she was on the cover of ELLE. Her newest book, Lauren Conrad Style, follows her highly successful YA series L.A. Candy, which is rumored to become a movie or TV series. The Hills died after LC left the cast. So we’re betting her September Issue-inspired new show will do just fine. Will you watch?


I like the name, Paper Crown.

Eminem says he isn't homophobic and thinks people are racist against him

In an interview with 60 Minutes that aired last night on CBS, rapper Eminem told Anderson Cooper that he feels he has received the backlash he has received, not because of what he has said in his music, but because of the color of his skin.

In the interview the rapper came off as a very conflicted, often giving answers that contradicted themselves or his actions. At one point in the interview, after reading Eminem his own song lyric in which he says “do I hate fags, the answer is yes” Cooper asked Eminem if he did not like gay people, to which he replied, “No, I don’t have any problem with nobody. You know what I mean? Like I’m just whatever.”

Eminem then went on to say he felt the backlash he received has been because of the color of his skin, saying, "I felt like I was being attacked. I was being singled out. I felt like, 'Is it because of the color of my skin? Is it because of that that you're paying more attention?' There are certain rappers that do and say the same things that I'm saying and I don't hear no one say anything about that."

90210's first gay love scene coming up

During an interview with NYPost.com's PopWrap, "90210" star Trevor Donovan revealed that Teddy's journey to self discovery is about to speed up a bit as he prepares to shoot the show's first gay love scene.

PopWrap: Have you filmed any love scenes yet?
Trevor Donovan: I haven’t yet, but one is coming up – very soon in our shooting schedule. The writers are handling it very delicately. It won’t be gratuitous, which I think is very true to real life as well. Teddy’s not just going to jump in and be all for it right away. He’s going to tip-toe into it. It’s a very sweet storyline. It’s gonna be a PG thing: very subtle, very sweet, very real.

In addition to that, Trevor revealed that Silver will remain in the dark for a long time while he keeps his relationship on the "DL" with Ian!

The Doctor Wants Florence (+ the Machine) on the Show

Doctor Who star Matt Smith says he wants Florence and the Machine's Florence Welch to have a cameo role on the show.

Matt was talking ahead of the launch of the interactive Doctor Who Live show. The tour started at London's Wembley Arena but will hit nine other major cities in the UK.

The sixth series of Doctor Who will open with a two-parter set in the US.

Production starts in Cardiff this month with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.

"I would like Florence to come and do a Doctor Who. I think she has an essence of an actress".

Celebrity wish list

Matt also revealed there were more celebrities he'd like to see on the programme.

"Eric Cantona, Vincent Cassell, would be number one actually. Helen Mirren would be great. Rowan Atkinson, I'd love to be in Doctor Who. I think he'd be wonderful. I think he's just great. i think he's a fantastic actor."

But would Florence be a friend or foe of the Doctor's?

"Well, who knows. She could be a baddie, she could be a goodie. But I think it will be interesting for her to tread the boards as it were."

As for there being a second red head on set, the first being the Dr's assistant, Karen Gillan, would that be a problem for the Doctor?

"No. There's always room for two fiery reds. And no one can ever replace Miss Gillan."

Series six has been split into two blocks, with the first airing on BBC One in spring 2011 and the second block showing in autumn 2011.


Look at the shiny new Florence tag, you guys. :D

Snooki -- Signing Her Community Service Away

 Snooki intends to finally complete her court-ordered community service for that whole drunken arrest thing ... and part of her contribution to society will be a 3-hour autograph session ... TMZ has learned. 

According to Snooki's lawyer, the "Jersey Shore" star will hit the Seaside Heights Community Center this weekend to sign autographs at a fund-raising event for an animal charity ... and the event will count toward her required two days of service.

We're told Snooks -- who was arrested after a drunken bender in Seaside Heights back in July -- will also be making a "personal donation of an undisclosed amount."

But before Snooki gets all Hancocky, we're told she'll be participating in a private community service activity that will take a few hours of her time ... but her people are keeping that info under wraps.

New couple alert?

Blake Lively and Ryan Gosling spotted together at Gibson Girl at Disneyland

Thank you to Jennie, or maybe not, for sending this link.

Apparently this went down last night.

Ryan Gosling and Blake Lively at Gibson Girl for ice cream... WHAT?

Yes, there are photos. Separately. Because they wouldn’t pose together.

I don’t want to talk about this. Any of it.

I know about the obvious aesthetic appeal here. Like, on the surface, their faces and bodies, it’s a clear match. Which totally means their babies would be ugly!

Beyond their looks though...

I don’t want to talk about this.

Right now it’s not a relationship.

Keep you posted on further developments.

What's your take? Its probably nothing but I wouldn't hate it tbh.

John Slattery ‘Entertained’ by Roger Sterling Suicide Theories

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lately, Roger Sterling has been on the ropes at the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. He lost the Lucky Strike account and, for a moment, seemed to lose his mojo. Our commenters (and writers) have even been speculating that Roger might fall so low, he'll off himself. So Vulture was particularly excited to speak with John Slattery after this week's episode — both because Roger seems to have reached such a turning point and because it was Slattery's second turn at directing an episode. We talked to him about Roger's fate, the frustrations and pleasures of directing on such a hypercontrolled show, and why he thinks that Roger could truly be happy with Joan.

I have to say, I feel like I’m talking to the most popular guy in school after talking to some of your castmates.
[Laughs.] Is that true? Really?

Yes, everyone speaks very highly of you.
Well, that’s nice to hear! I paid them all off very handsomely.

MPAA Now Specifically Warning Viewers About ‘Male Nudity,’ Thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen

What do the odd triumvirate of Jackass 3D, Eat Pray Love, and Grown-Ups have in common? They're the first three films to receive the gender-specific warning of "male nudity" from the MPAA in conjunction with their ratings, an odd distinction that isn't made when actresses disrobe. “Parents requested specifically after the movie Brüno that we provide such information,” said ratings-board spokesman Craig Hoffman of the Sacha Baron Cohen film, which received a ratings notice last year that warned of “pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity and language,” yet mentioned nothing specifically about twirling penises shot in close-up. Sins of omission!


Courteney Cox & David Arquette: Open Marriage

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Courteney Cox and David Arquette lived an “open marriage” in the months before their sudden and shock split, according to multiple sources close to the pair.

Cox, 46, was linked to Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt, while Arquette, 39, was often spotted behaving like a wild and crazy single man, at hotspots around Hollywood.

A source on set at Cougar Town told RadarOnline.com: “Courteney and Brian were all over each at a wrap party in April and the talk on the set was that it was fine because she and David had an open marriage.”

In May, Cox and Van Holt were even spotted out together four times in less than four weeks.

On one occasion, they were photographed at Malibu's Coral Beach Cantina without her husband of 11 years and their six-year-old daughter, Coco.

“They were drinking beer and having chips and salsa in the back of the outdoor patio,” said one eyewitness at Coral Beach Cantina, on May 7.

Which 'Disney Diva' Will Prevail as an Adult?

The girls, they are growing up. Each one turns 18 this year, and you know each one is going to, sooner or later, ditch the sort of sweet roles that made her a star. (And, uh, in Miley's case, that would be sooner.)
The world's never been kind to child stars, and this trio is so talented and so familiar that you can't help but feel a little bit parental toward them. Look both ways before you cross the street! Don't wash your white and colored laundry together! And always use a ... stylist with good taste!
You can't blame these multitalented stars for eyeing older audiences, of course. We all saw what happened when Fonzie was wearing the leather jacket far longer than he should've been -- even though Henry Winkler has more than redeemed himself with his work on "Arrested Development" and his terrific Hank Zipzer books for kids.

So really, the billion-dollar question is which of these girls will do it best?

Singer MIKA'S sister impaled on railings ... he watched

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The sister of pop star Mika is critically ill in hospital after falling from a window and landing on steel fence railings.

Paloma Penniman, 28, fell over 15m from the third-floor window in Kensington, west London, on Sunday morning after she lost her balance while sitting on a ledge, The Sun reported.

It is believed firefighters had to cut a section of the railings before Penniman was taken to hospital with them still in her.

Paloma — who sang backing vocals on Mika's last album — had earlier been out to dinner with her famous brother.

A hysterical Mika called for emergency help to her home in Kensington, West London, just after 5am.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called to an address at 5.15 (Sunday) morning after reports a woman was impaled on railings after falling from a window."

A spokesman for Mika, 27, said: "Paloma had a serious accident. She is in a critical but stable state.

"The family have asked for privacy at this time."

Now I’m not sure if you remember, but Raz B accused former B2k Manager Chris Stokes and Marques Houston of molesting him in a video that was released in 2007. During that time, another artist by the name of Quindon that worked under Chris Stokes when he was younger claimed he was molested as well.

Cher Lloyd's ex-boyfriend insists she does not have an eating disorder

The ex-boyfriend of X Factor contestant Cher Lloyd has insisted that the 17-year-old does not have an eating disorder.

Speaking to Star magazine, 18-year-old Alex Wallis said: “Her family have been worried about her weight in the past. They even took her to the doctors to get it checked. “But they ran some tests on her and she’s fine. Obviously from the size of her, she just doesn’t put on weight.”

Cher and Alex dated for seven months, but split up just before the show started - and he maintains that Cher has a healthy appetite.

“Cher eats loads,” he said. “When we were together, we were always eating Chinese takeaways and McDonald’s. When she was at boot camp, she’d always go into her hotel room and eat her meals there while I was on the phone to her. They must have thought that she wasn’t eating because they couldn’t see her, but she was.”

And despite her nerves at the judges’ house stage of the competition, Alex believes she will make the final. “Once she’s done her first couple of shows and gets more confident, I think she’ll go all the way. She’s a very strong person,” he said.

omg it's so sweet that her ex still speaks so highly of her :)

Demi and Ashton Fly to Israel to Renew Wedding Vows

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As reports of infidelity plague their marriage, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore fled to Israel this weekend to find "love" and "compromise."

"Sharing Love & Light while in Israel," Kutcher posted on his Twitter page Saturday night.

"Asking 4 the energy 2 forge bonds with our similarities & find compromise in our differences."

Rumors rebounded across the internet that the couple's escape would include a renewal of their wedding ceremony, but a source denied that theory on Sunday.

"They are not in Israel to renew vows,
" the source told People, reporting instead that Kutcher is in town to speak at a conference.

Over the last few weeks, the duo has defended themselves against an onslaught of accusations their marriage is on the rocks.

One woman who claims to be Kutcher' mistress told Star Magazine the A-List couple has an open marriage and "often" engages in threesomes.

Since the rumors broke, Kutcher and Moore have presented a united front, making public appearances together and engaging in on-set PDA.

Kutcher slammed the Star report as "fiction" while Demi tweeted a personal photo of the pair, smiling and snuggling under the covers on their fifth wedding anniversary.

Though the couple seems to be enjoying their time overseas, with Moore tweeting that Israel is "glorious," fans who hoped to see them renew their vows this week will most likely be disappointed.

'Very excited about the Bezeq NGN Expo tomorrow,'  Kutcher tweeted on Sunday evening, confirming the trip was in all likelihood motivated by an Israeli communications conference.

Baz Luhrmann Wants To Direct Glee


Acclaimed musical-maker BAZ LUHRMANN has given GLEE his seal of approval and asked TV bosses to let him direct an episode of the hit show.

The Australian director, who won two Oscars for his 2001 movie musical Moulin Rouge!, admits he is a big fan of the high school singing show and is desperate to get involved.

And Luhrmann has even approached creator Ryan Murphy about taking over the set as a guest director.

He tells MTV.com, "I'm a great fan of Glee. I spoke to Ryan. I tried to find a moment to do an (episode) with him. I'd love to do that. I think those kids are phenomenal. Just to do that every week, the discipline.

"When I made Moulin Rouge! it was like, 'You've got to be kidding, a musical with contemporary tracks, that will never work.'

"So if I could (direct an episode), I'd love to... I'd like to contribute to that."

The Gap Abandons Its New, "Modern, Sexy, Cool" Logo

Last week, The Gap released a redesigned logo that looked like an design-school dropout's take on the modern credit card. They said it was part of the transition from "classic, American design, to modern, sexy, cool.” (Bloomberg reports it was an attempt to win over "millenials," which are young people, not apocalyptic Christians.) People didn't like it.

The company first responded to the thousand or so angry Facebook commenters with the unconvincing claim that they were just "crowd-sourcing" ideas. Today, they caved and ditched the new look. As their president put it, “All roads were leading us back to the blue box.” It was like New Coke on warp speed: Coca-Cola's famous 1985 re-branding failure took ten weeks to play out, while Tropicana's 2009 attempt at switching logos took about a month to fizzle out. All hail the mob!


Justin Bieber craves a normal life

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Earlier this year we told you about Justin Bieber’s newest projects like his movie and of course his book. Today we are sharing with you an excerpt that Justin published with News of the World from his so-called autobiography. Here is what he shares.

If I was at home and I wasn’t doing this, I’d wish that I was in this position. Now that I’m here, I sometimes wish I could just go back home and just chill. 

When I was little, I longed for a ‘normal’ life with a ‘normal’ family. Mom worked her butt off at whatever job she could get to keep a roof over our heads. There were no luxuries but it never occurred to me that we were poor. We had each other, which was everything.

For someone who regrets some of his famous status, Justin sure is making the most of it with a movie and his book. I wonder if he will even bother to continue making music? What do you guys think about what Justin Bieber said?

Pairing DC Comic Characters W/ Famous Showrunners

Finally, Wonder Woman is coming back to television, but it's not from who we'd expect. The producer taking on the mighty Amazonian isn't someone known for their action shows, or their sci-fi -- no, it's David E. Kelley, the man responsible for a slew of lawyer shows (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and The Practice) as well as Boston Public and Chicago Hope. While Wonder Woman has held various jobs in her secret identity as Diana Prince, including nurse, we're hoping the focus of the show will be on heroics and not workplace antics, and that it leads to even more DC superheroes on TV. Here are some other famous showrunners we think should take a stab at the DC Comics universe.

Eastwood on Hoover film: DiCaprio in, Phoenix out

(Reuters) - Director Clint Eastwood on Monday shot down rumors that Joaquin Phoenix might return to acting by portraying J. Edgar Hoover's protege and purported lover in a biopic on the controversial, first FBI director.

Eastwood told Reuters that Leonardo DiCaprio was definitely lined up to play Hoover. But Phoenix, who recently revealed his charade to quit acting and become a rap singer, was not in talks to play Clyde Tolson.

"No. I don't know where that came from...didn't he become a rapper?" Eastwood said, when asked about recent reports Phoenix was being considered for the role. Phoenix had taken on rapping in a hoax that surrounded the making of a mock documentary film called "I'm Still Here" about his supposed transition.

Oscar-winning director Eastwood did say that DiCaprio definitely wants the role of Hoover. "It's a great role for him," Eastwood said, adding that the film's makers were "in the process" of signing contracts with DiCaprio.

The Hollywood legend, who after turning 80 years-old this year, is about to release his latest directorial effort "Hereafter" that tackles mortality and possibilities of an afterlife, said his next project on Hoover would focus on many aspects of the man's complicated life.

"He was a very complex person. The homosexual aspect is just one of many. I would say that's the least of his problems. But he was also very clever, whether rightfully or wrongfully, he was very clever about keeping himself in a certain position in life, so it is an interesting study," Eastwood said.

Hoover, who died in 1972, was the first director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he served nearly four decades at the helm of the U.S. law enforcement agency.

Following his death, Hoover fell under sharp criticism for keeping secret files on prominent citizens, politicians and celebrities, including Martin Luther King, Jr. He also became the subject of conjecture over whether he was gay and if Tolson, Associate Director of the FBI, was his lover.

Eastwood said that by growing up in the 1930s and 40s, he could capture the mythology of Hoover in pop culture at the time, which had "comic books with him on the cover with machine guns and all that."

"He is a fascinating character, and I think I am the right person to do it , not because I knew him or anything, but I did grow up with him," Eastwood said. "He was an iconic figure."
