Nicki Minaj Rocks Huge Diamond Ring On Engagement Finger

Nicki Minaj hit the Miami area to party it up with her Barbez last night at Mansion. And she was sporting a suspiciously huge diamond ring on her engagement finger.
Nicki's bestie Drake was there as well. Months ago, the two played around with telling their Twitter followers and stans they they had gotten engaged. And even though they said it was all a prank, it hasn't stopped Nicki from rocking a big diamond ring on her left hand ring finger.

By the way, Nicki just did an an interview with MTV News and said she wanted to change her name to Nicki Maraj (her government name is Onika Maraj) because she "no longer liked Minaj", but she was talked out of it because her fans like Minaj. She said a guy she was producing with originally gave her the Minaj name because, while in the studio before she "made it", the producer said he liked Minaj better. Whatevs.

Aussie Show Apologizes Over "Pedophillic" Butt Shots Of Young Girls

Last year, Hey Hey it’s Saturday came under fire after its now-infamous “blackface” skit in which a parody of the Jackson Five drew comment from Harry Connick Jr. on air, and attracted international headlines.

Once again, the show has come under fire over its Red Faces segment. But this time it wasn’t the act so much as the close-up camera shots that were used.

Guest judge Ella Hooper, formerly of Killing Heidi, criticised camera shots of an act featuring three under-age girls wearing country and western attire. As the girls swayed to their song there were close-ups of their backsides.

Hooper said, “Well I was loving the plaid, and respectful of wearing such short shorts on such a cold, rainy night, and I’m of the country persuasion myself, I’m a country girl, so I thought there were a lot of pro’s.

“Only possible con was the camera choice shots at the start, but that’s not your fault.”

While the moment passed without further incident, Hooper saved her real criticism for later when Daryl Somers asked her if the camera shots for the third act, a firewalker, were an improvement.
“It was far less paedophilic,” she said in part, drawing an audible reaction in the studio.

Sir Ian McKellan not in Hobbit film.

Sir Ian McKellen has said that he has not yet signed to join The Hobbit.

Speaking to Broadway World, the actor explained that he is not under contract to return as Gandalf in director Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings prequels.

"I am not under contract, no. I'm not going to say any more than that because it might complicate things! So, I would say - at the moment - no, I am not under contract," McKellen stated.

The X-Men star had been attached to reprise his role as the Middle-earth wizard in The Hobbit.

"The aim is to start filming in January," he previously said about the project.

Judge For Yourself Whether The Black Eyed Peas Stole "I Gotta Feeling"

Last week Vulture directed your attention to a joint lawsuit from two different unsigned artists claiming the Black Eyed Peas stole their material. You'd already heard Phoenix Phenom's "Boom Dynamite," which may or may not be the basis for "Boom Boom Pow," but Bryan Pringle's "Take a Dive" — which allegedly was ripped off for "I Gotta Feeling" — had previously been unavailable. It's on YouTube now and, well — unless there's some kind of high-level fraud going on here, Bryan Pringle needs to get paid.

Jenna Ushkovitz: Playing Tina on 'Glee' Is a 'Dream Job'

Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina Cohen-Chang on 'Glee,' knows she has, "the dream job."

"It's so time consuming, we don't even think about it," Jenna says of she and her costars' work on set. "We're like in a bubble. We all know what we're doing though and stay focused. We don't even realize how hard we're working we're so into it! But we get to sing and dance! It doesn't get better than that."

Jenna says the reserved, gothic character she plays is definitely, "much darker and more pensive," than her real-life personality.

"Tina's shy and quiet. Somewhere in there, I promise I'm a little shy too!" the bubbly actress laughs. "But she's got her insecurities, as we all do. And there are lots of layers to Tina, which there are to me, too."

And with the upcoming love triangle involving Tina's character, we had to know whether Jenna was Team Artie or Team Mike Chang.

"They're very different," she says. "You know Artie and Tina together is just so much fun. But Harry [who plays Mike Chang] has great chemistry with Tina. I'll just have to see where the story arcs take them!"

We told her Kevin McHale, who plays Artie, compares Tina and Artie to Topanga and Cory from 'Boy Meets World.'

"Oh, I totally agree with that," she says. "You know, Tina and Artie will go through their ups and downs and see other people, but in the back of my mind, I always think they'll end up together."

(We asked about Jenna's real-life relationship with Kevin, but the two of them are, "just friends.")

And just who would Jenna like to see on Glee?

"I love Hugh Jackman, and I'm dying to work with Sandra Oh! She could play my crazy aunt or something," she says. Jenna actually dressed up as Sandra's 'Grey's Anatomy' persona, Dr. Christina Yang, this Halloween.

Shooting the Lady Gaga episode of, 'Glee,' and being a gothic vampire have been some of Jenna's favorite parts of the show so far. "And of course, working with Jane Lynch," she says. "Watching her do a scene is like taking an acting class. She's just a comedic genius. She's like our mom on set and we absolutely look up to her, but she's also our good friend."

Jenna says when Jane Lynch came out saying Tina was her favorite character on 'Glee,' it was, "surreal."

"It's so funny, she'd actually told me that before but it didn't really register," Jenna says. "Then when it was in writing, it hit me. I mean it was so cool and such an honor!"

As far as Jenna's hopes for her character, she'd love to see, "a Tina dream sequence." We agree on that, and we're all about Sandra Oh playing a Cohen-Chang!

Diane Lane Is 45 Years of Torturing Boys With Hotness

Black Swan is a masterclass in tension. Both achingly beautiful and suddenly, shockingly horrifying to watch, it’s a film that is impossible to look away from – even when everything inside you is telling you to cover your eyes...From the moment [Portman] and her collection of muscles appear on-screen, we can see that every sinew has been pushed to its utmost limit in preparation for this role. And by the end, it’s clear that it’s not only physically that she has been stretched. - Best For Film

Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry

I almost forgot about this collaboration until I got an email update just now. Back in March you’ve got a sneak peek at the sketches from the Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection, now here’s a look at the actual pieces where Amy Winehouse is modeling in the lookbook.

“I’m really excited about doing this collection with Fred Perry. We’ve been working on it for a while and it’s great to see it finally come to fruition.” – Amy Winehouse

A long-time Fred Perry fan and aficionado, Amy has now collaborated with the brand on her own 17 piece Fred Perry apparel and accessories collection. It’s Amy all over – sharp, clever, sexy, lots of attitude – but stays true the Perry aesthetic and unrivalled heritage. Classic pieces – the twintipped M12 polo shirt, the Harrington jacket, the jumper dress – are given the full Winehouse treatment and still remain instantly recognisable. A girly twinset has Fifties sex siren written all over it, gingham goes from homely to hot, pencil skirts become dangerously short, Capri pants find a punkinspired edge, a mini bowling shirtdress flaunts in equal measure. Colours are predominantly blackand pink. Collars are most definitely raised and ready for action. And yet for every tomboy twist there’s a deeply feminine twirl.

MTV Apologizes For Slur On Jersey Shore Reunion


MTV has apologized for airing a portion of the Jersey Shore Reunion Special during which cast members and the show’s host made insensitive comments about a possibly transgender individual.

The segment began with a clip of Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino hitting on a clubgoer that his fellow castmates taunted was “a tra**y.” They added, “If you have to think about it, it’s a tra**y. Stay away.”

Then there were shots shown of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro wearing a dress and a large man in a bikini and a Halloween mask. The show’s host Julissa Bermudez then chimed in asking Mike, “Who was that tra**y? What was up with that?”

When contacted by GLAAD, MTV apologized in a statement: “We appreciate GLAAD voicing concern about the Jersey Shore reunion special. The segment in question was certainly not meant to be insensitive, but in retrospect we realize that it was offensive to some viewers. We sincerely apologize.”

In future airings, the portions will be cut and the network invited GLAAD representatives to meet and help educate the staff on gender issues.

The Situation on Grenades and Safe Sex

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The man of six abs and a million catchphrases introduced us to a few more — ‘wrap it up’ (have safe sex), for instance — but the most shocking of all was …

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino sat down with Today Show’s Hoda and Kathie Lee this morning to promote his new book, Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore, and answer a few revealing questions. You’ll never guess what shocked us the most!

Kathie Lee brought up a great point when she said that she would never want her own daughter to be called a “grenade,” but Sitch made no apologies when it comes to coining the degrading term! He claims that a girl can be grenade because of her personality, meaning that even a beautiful girl can be called one — but we’ve never seen that happen on the show!

The reality star is even even looking for a girlfriend between drunken escapades, saying that “I’m looking for the right one right now. I believe in destiny. I believe in true love.” Really?

Speaking of Jersey drunkenness, Kathie Lee asked how he he could possibly perform sexually after a night out in Miami. This particular situation, however, is a non-issue! Mike claims that he’s had “rave reviews,” also making sure to add that he doesn’t get as drunk as the rest of the roommates.

One of the best things about Mike ‘”The Situation” is that behind the fist-pumping and smack-talking, he actually has some sound advice. In response to a Facebook fan’s question about the possibility of getting STDs, he says, “I am not worried about STDs whatsoever because I believe in safe sex. Either wrap it up or don’t do it at all.” Phew!

‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Under Attack - ‘Doesn’t Deserve Sophia’ Says Baby’s Grandmother

Farrah Abraham cut her daughter’s grandmother Stormie Clark out of their lives and now she’s firing back! Stormie tells Life & Style that Farrah is “selfish” and using baby Sophia!

“She’s a heartless spoiled brat and doesn’t deserve Sophia,” says Stormie.

Stormie’s son and father of baby Sophia, Derek, passed away in 2008 after being involved in a fatal car crash.

“Farrah has to understand how devastated I am to have lost my son and now to lose my granddaughter,” says Stormie. “If Derek were alive he’d be devastated.”

Stormie, who originally told that she would only give an interview for money, tells the magazine that Farrah wouldn’t even allow her to meet her granddaughter!

“I have every right to see my granddaughter,” she says. “Farrah wouldn’t let me see Sophia so the judge ruled against me [in a visitation rights case Oct. 26] It’s absolutely not fair.”

Stomie tells Life & Style that she happened to run into baby Sophia at the park one day, and it was her one chance to “shower Sophia was hugs and kisses.”

Namely, during her forthcoming guest turn on the show, Gwyneth Paltrow will be performing the radio edit of Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You,” known as “Forget You.” Will it be as good as Will’s cleaned-up performance of “Golddigger”? ("She ain’t messing with no broke, broke.") Also in store for us: Bruno Mars (“Just the Way You Are”), the Zuton’s “Valerie” (best known for its Amy Winehouse cover), a rendition of "Marry You," and Dirty Dancing's "(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life," which should be rousing, just so long as the Black Eyed Peas don't crash, and/or Cory Monteith doesn't dance.

Ke$ha's "We R Who We R" is set to become just the 17th song to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 when the chart is officially released tomorrow (Nov. 4).

The track is the preview single from Ke$ha's forthcoming "Cannibal" album, set to be released on its own on Nov. 22 in addition to being packaged with her debut album, "Animal," in a deluxe edition titled "Animal Cannibal."

"We R Who We R" shifts 280,000 downloads in its initial week at retail to easily rank at No. 1 on Digital Songs, knocking Far*East Movement's "Like a G6" (178,000, down 13%) to No. 2 on both that chart and the Hot 100.
"Like a G6" topped the latter list for the past two weeks and had led Digital Songs for three non-consecutive frames.

Police Ready to Slap Teen Mom Amber Portwood Right Back (With a Subpoena)

E! News has confirmed that police are planning to subpoena MTV (which boasts either the greatest or worst casting, we can't decide) for the unedited footage of the decidedly one-sided fight between the show's most infamous Teen Mom, Amber Portwood, and what has to be the most bruised teen dad, Gary Shirley.

"We're looking for any behavior that would be considered to be unlawful where the law is broken," Indiana's Anderson Police Department spokesman Mitch Carroll told E! News, adding that police are currently drafting a subpoena to send to MTV.

"From what we have seen so far from the allegations, and we have to bear in mind that we're dealing with edited footage, it could be something as simple as misdemeanor domestic violence battery—a Class A misdemeanor. Or if it is in fact found to have occurred in the presence of a child less than 14 years of age it could be upgraded to a Class D felony."

Even before Gary came into the picture, Tonya reveals, Amber had been emotionally damaged by the loss of her infant sister, Candace, who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome when Amber was just 6. "That was her baby sister," says Tonya. "Amber just loved her."

Above all, there's one urgent message Tonya wants to convey: Amber is making the necessary changes. "She's left Gary," Tanya tells Life & Style. "When she's not with Gary, she's fine. She's looking for a better place to raise Leah. She's seeing a therapist. She's getting herself straightened out. She's trying to turn her life around.

The film is an adaptation of Benjamin Mee's book about the project he undertook with his family in a bid to save the animals and restore their habitats in the decrepit Dartmoor Zoological Park.

beautiful woman gets shit stolen from her house

Keira Knightley has been left "mortified" after two laptops were stolen from her house. The 25-year-old actress is said to be considering moving out of the London property after thieves raided her luxury apartment by entering through a faulty communal door and took the portable computers, which detectives fear might contain sensitive contents which could be sold on.

"Keira is mortified to think anyone has been rummaging around her personal stuff," a source told The Sun newspaper. "She feels violated and doesn't know if she wants to return to the flat."

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, who shares the property with her brother Caleb , was in Rome, Italy for the premiere of her latest movie "Last Night" at the time of the theft.

Police are now waiting for the actress, who is dating 29-year-old actor Rupert Friend, to return from holiday so she can list anything else missing from the flat. Thieves had previously broken into two flats in the same block the week before, quelling speculation the actress was deliberately targeted.

A senior police source said, "Police do not think Keira, who has been stalked in the past, was targeted because of her fame." An official police spokesperson confirmed, "Officers from Westminster CID are investigating a residential burglary at the flat."

NBC And Milo Ventimiglia Team-Up For "Rest"

He just starred on an NBC drama series with comic book mythology. Now Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia is back at the network as the star/executive producer of Rest, a new drama project based on a comic book series he co-created.

Ventimiglia will executive produce the project, which has received a script commitment with film/TV/Broadway producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Footloose, Drop Dead Diva). Also executive producing are Ventimiglia's producing partner at Divide Pictures Russ Cundiff and Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins from Top Cow, the comic book publisher behind Rest. Writer Philip Levens (Smallville), who will also executive produce, is adapting the comic, which was created by Ventimiglia, Cudiff and Mark Powers based on a script by Mike O'Sullivan.

It centers on John Barret (Ventimiglia), a normal twentysomething guy in New York City who spends every waking hour working. He enrolls in a testing program for a drug that eliminates the need of sleep and soon becomes addicted to it, which helps him accomplish more but also leads to serious consequences. Since the comic launched in 2008, there has been a lot of chatter among fans that Barret looks a lot like Ventimiglia and that Rest would be turned into TV series or film. Ventimiglia and Levens are with CAA.


(Sounds like a cool project. Hopefully, NBC won't give up on the show so quickly, if it doesn't pull in many viewers)

Top 10 Best Happy Meal Toys

San Francisco, is limiting the release of toys in kid’s happy meals at McDonald’s to help discourage kids from eating the stuff. They’re not outright banning them, like they did in Santa Clara County, because kids like toys, and it’s a keystone in McDonald’s marketing. Instead, children will be able to “earn” them by choosing a meal that isn’t high in calories, which seems impossible because it is McDonald’s, but apparently you can replace the fries with apple slices.It probably won’t be long before this movement spreads throughout North America, and to all the other McDonald’s on the planet. So start snatching up the toys while you can, before they’re gone forever. Here’s a look at our top 10 favorite happy meal toys.

10. Transforming McDonald’s Food

Once in awhile, McDoink’s would release transforming versions of their food items, like fries that could turn into a robot, or a milkshake that could also turn into a robot. While they weren’t that cool, different variations started popping up like the Dino-Changers, where instead of robots, the food became dinosaurs. Maybe it’s about time they brought these back for a new generation.

Demi Lovato's Parents Thank Fans for Their Kindness

As Demi Lovato focuses on getting better after checking into a treatment center to address "emotional and physical issues" that have plagued her much of her life, her parents are taking a moment to thank her fans for standing by their daughter.

"Our entire family appreciates the outpouring of support we have received from Demi's fans," Eddie and Dianna De La Garza tell PEOPLE. "We are touched by their kindness."

The 18-year-old Disney Channel star is currently receiving treatment an an undisclosed center.

"Demi is not receiving care at one of the Hollywood-type centers," said a source close to the family. "She is at a real facility that specializes in helping adolescent and adult women with the type of issues she has battled."

According to the source, the teen star "has fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting," a form of self-harm. "She has a long history of battling these issues."

In deciding to leave the Jonas Brothers's world tour, the family source said, "Demi is taking control by getting help."


"The Lady Killer": First Listen

"I'm often asked, 'What do I do for a living?' And I answer, 'I do what I want.'"
—Cee-Lo Green, "The Lady Killer Theme (Intro)"

On a Thursday in mid-August, Cee Lo Green leaked the first single from his forthcoming album, The Lady Killer. It casts his meaty tenor in the role of a vindictive, jilted lover who bluntly dresses down his ex's new man, set to the sheen of a classic R&B track; all of this was tailored specifically for the medium of YouTube, accompanied by an animated scroll of its lyrics. By the weekend, the song — and news of the song, and general approbation for the song — had spread like wildfire.

Not incidentally, the track is titled "F—- You."

It's a fun ploy for attention (watch the music video, which appeared later), but considered amid a career filled with left turns, it's only strange by a matter of degree. Here's the man who came to prominence as the personable sing-song rapper in Goodie Mob, an earthy, down-home purveyor of Southern rap; who broke away to launch a solo career on the zanier fringe of hip-hop and/or neo-soul; and who reached the mainstream — surprise! — as the full-fledged singer of Gnarls Barkley, the eclectic/eccentric duo behind "Crazy."

Now, Cee Lo returns as a new character: "When it comes to ladies," he says in the spoken-word intro, "I have a license to kill." It's not a new persona in the history of pop culture; fittingly, these are songs with more than a few echoes of earlier eras. Soul music's sonic signifiers — ringing guitars, real drums, sweeping strings and brass — figure heavily, even when studio-rearranged to the point of anachronism. Its lyrical tropes are there, too, with songs about love lost, won, preserved, sought after and otherwise discussed. Cee Lo's signature croon fits snugly under this polish.

Of course, Cee Lo has personalized this aesthetic. The twangy "Love Gun" sounds lifted from an old-school spy thriller, "Fool For You" features a staccato Motown groove and "Old Fashioned" swoons with the oohs and aahs that its name suggests. From seeking a night of action in the disco-infused "Bright Lights Bigger City" (the second single) to proclaiming his sincerest affection in "No One's Gonna Love You," Cee Lo's Lady Killer is at once outlandish and a familiar male archetype — just another guy. Even in "F—- You," he comes off as more comically self-deprecating than offensive; like much of Cee Lo's work, the freak in him comes through with a wink.

The Lady Killer will stream here in its entirety until its release on Nov. 9. Please leave your thoughts on the album in the comments section below.


Comes out on my birthday, I'm so excited... Bright Lights, Bigger City is amazing.

Riallah Mourns Death of ‘Lion King’ Actress Shannon Tavarez


Shannon Tavarez, an 11-year-old girl who starred as “Young Nala” on Broadway in “The Lion King” passed away on Monday and Rihanna is among friends and family that are mourning the loss of the budding entertainer.

“Just got off a plane ride and heard horrible news that our little star Shannon Tavarez has lost her battle with Leukemia!” Rihanna Tweeted. “Way too soon….keep her family in your prayers.”

Rihanna befriended Tavarez during her fight with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia and campaigned with Alicia Keys and 50 Centto help find the young star a bone marrow match by urging fans to register with DKMS. Doctors were unable to find a donor match for the performer and tried an umbilical-chord blood transplant in August as an alternative. 

Before she passed, Tavarez wrote on her website: “Some people think that the test for compatibility is scary! All it really takes to get started is a cotton swab of the inside of your cheek. So please get tested today. Who knows? You might be my match. Or, you may be able to help other young people with similar illnesses. And remember… ‘One swab will do the job’.”

Bill Clinton Comments On Lil Wayne's Prison Release

You already knew that Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne's biggest fans were eagerly awaiting the Young Money MC's release from Rikers Island prison on Thursday. But did you ever imagine a former United States president was busy thinking about life after lockup for Mr. Carter?

In the midst of a tough final push for Democratic candidates in the run-up to the midterm elections, former President Bill Clinton found the time to call in to Pittsburgh radio station 96.1 Kiss FM's "Morning Freak Show" on Tuesday to stump for Democratic candidates. That's when hosts Mikey and Big Bob asked the 42nd president his thoughts on Weezy's release. Clinton had more to say than you might imagine about the subject, without ever actually mentioning Wayne by name.


"I tell you what I think about that," a bemused Clinton said. "I know this is kind of a funny question for you to ask me. But I think — you know, my daughter introduced me to rap and hip-hop music after I said some things she thought were not very smart. She said, 'Dad, you need to listen, all these people are smart.' This guy's smart. And he's got abilities. And he's got a new chance now. And what I hope is that this is not just something to brand him as a cool guy, but that it'll never happen again to him.

"You know, I think a lot of these people, they don't get successful in that — just like in any other area of life — by being really dumb. They're really smart. But a lot of them had tough lives, and they almost think it's cool to get in trouble every now and then, or they don't know how to stay out. But what I hope will happen is that he has a good life now."

During a lengthy interview with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 last night (Nov. 2), Kanye West, a little tipsy from sipping on some Chardonnay, went in on a variety of topics, including his upcoming album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, his relationship with Amber Rose, his G.O.O.D. Friday releases and his collabo project with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne. Our favorite quotes below.

“Have you heard the first line of ‘Runaway’? [I sent this girl a picture of my dick] I only rap reality. I went to the Internet... They had the link, I went to it… Man, you cannot imagine how disappointed I was that I got cut off.

TWOP's Funniest Movie Villains

Villainy isn't easy. Trying to take over the world, or simply ruin somebody's life, can be a lot harder than you think, especially when you have the hero, the U.S. government and the theatergoing audience pitted against you. To even up the odds, some villains try to win the support of the audience from the beginning, using comedy to make them seem roguishly charming, rather than simply dickish. With Will Ferrell winning hearts and minds as Megamind, we thought we'd run down the villains who made us laugh, either intentionally or unintentionally, because they were so incompetently terrible

Wolverine Won't Be In "X-Men: First Class"

When 'X-Men' hit in 2000, mutton-chopped Wolverine strolled into the the public consciousness, and by 2003, his adamantium claws ripped through any remaining genre barriers, freeing him to rise to the top tiers of mainstream superheroes. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine was the bee's knees cat's pajamas ... he was James Dean meets Sean Connery -- troubled, yet charismatically unstoppable.

By becoming such an important figure in the first trio of films -- so much that he launched the first X-Men solo film with X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009 -- Wolverine became a distinct part of the public X-Men consciousness. Removing his snickety snitch from the proceedings seems unfathomable, but that's precisely what's happening with 'X-Men: First Class.' Sticking to the roots of the story (those pre-Logan years), 20th Century Fox is daring a reboot without even a cameo from its most popular member.

Collapse )

(Honestly, I'm not that disappointed. I'm happy he won't be in X-M: FC because a] he has his own set of movies and b] he pretty much was the star of the X-Men movies, so it'll be nice to get a break)

Ladyfag interviews Casey Spooner !!

Ladyfag interviews Casey Spooner !!
This entry is written by guestblogger Ladyfag.

When many men start creeping toward middle age, they buy themselves a red convertible: a possible last hurrah or an attempt to bring back the crazy hazy days of youth. Not Casey Spooner. Formerly the frontman for the highly successful Electroclash art extravaganza Fischerspooner, Casey has just come out with a solo album entitled "Adult Contemporary."

He says, "It's sort of the opposite now. I'm actually wearing clothes. I'm not prancing around stage in a jockstrap to Electroclash anymore"

The man can change the music, but can the music really change the man? I wonder what his new show is all about and in the midst of our conversation he mentions that he and Jake Shears (of the Scissor Sisters) have been hitting the gym to see who can wear the tiniest Speedo for an upcoming video.Collapse )

Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus vs. Mega Python vs. Gatoroid vs. L.A.liens vs. Almighty Thor

Yesterday's story about The Asylum's 2012: Moby Dick was only the beginning as the American Film Market is about to swing into high gear, and that means production companies are unveiling titles and production art for a slew of movies they intend to bring us in the coming year ... companies like The Asylum and its film slate featuring giant animals, aliens invading Los Angeles, and Marvel superhero mockbusters.

December 21st is the release date for Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, the super-sized sequel to The Asylum's kitsch hit Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus. Directed by Chris Ray, son of b-movie kingpin Fred Olen Ray, this time the fate of the world trapped between the jaws of a megalodon shark and a prehistoric crocodile falls into the capable hands of Jaleel "Urkel" White and Robert Picardo of "Star Trek: Voyager" and The Howling fame.

The massive prehistoric shark has survived the last battle, and the world is again threatened when a new, more dangerous foe is discovered in the jungles of Africa.

Girls Aloud NOT splitting up, WILL get back together

Cole: 'Girls Aloud will mark 10th year'

Cheryl Cole has reiterated that Girls Aloud have not permanently split up.

The X Factor judge claimed that the girl group would be around to celebrate their tenth anniversary in 2012.

"We'd have to mark our 10th year," Cole told X magazine. "It's pretty amazing to be in the industry for that long, and not a lot of people are that lucky. We have to mark that."

Since being formed on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, the group have released five studio albums and gone on to score 20 Top 10 hits.

Cole admitted that the group needed their break because they were "morphing into one" after spending so much time together.

"Sometimes you just need space to grow," she said. "I get what you mean, just looking at us all. Because we're still together a lot socially it doesn't seem so weird to us, but you only ever see us as individuals.

"We've got a three-album deal, so we're just waiting. We're not breaking up."

It's Coming People, Silent Hill 2 is Coming...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic reports that Michael J. Bassett will direct Silent Hill: Revelations, which will be released in 3D

Bassett's credits include Solomon Kane and Deathwatch.

"Revelations" focuses on a protagonist named Heather Mason who, on the eve of her 18th birthday, is plagued by nightmares and now has to investigate the disappearance of her father.

The first film, directed by Christophe Gans and starring Radha Mitchell, earned $97.6 million at the worldwide box office.


I'm not happy with the 3D aspect, is it so much to ask for them to let that abomination die? Also, is the premise from one of the games or some generic plot?

Katy Perry Wrestling Lady GaGa in a Pile of Tomatoes


Welcome to the healing.

Because the British understand Americans better than we understand ourselves, MTV London hired Lady GaGa and Katy Perry impersonators to wrestle each other in a pile of tomatoes yesterday. And while I originally started this post as a reprieve from this morning’s political tomfoolery, I should probably admit this is my entire platform for 2016. Mandatory this.

Oh you wacky Brits!

Bieber like, says like, he is here like, because of like, Jesus.

Justin Bieber might be the modern king of all media.

The teen heartthrob has the Web wired – he's a YouTube discovery with almost 6 million followers on Twitter. He makes hit music, with an album and concert tour in the nation's top 20 and a new album on the way in a few weeks. He's got a movie coming out early next year, and on Sunday, he drew enough fans to temporarily shut down a Barnes & Noble bookstore where he promoted his autobiography, "First Step 2 Forever: My Story."

More than 1,000 teen and tween girls, a handful of boys, and their parents waited in a long line that snaked through the popular Grove shopping center for a chance to meet the shaggy-haired Canadian singer. All had secured wristbands days earlier when they bought Bieber's book, a photo-packed hardcover about his rise to fame that sells for $21.99.

The store closed its doors and blocked them with black curtains as fans streamed in to collect their signed books and pose for a photo with the 16-year-old star.

Before the fan-demonium began ("Oh my God, he touched my hair!" one girl said), Bieber talked about his book and his future ambitions.

The Associated Press: Your fans know your story, why tell them again in a book?

Bieber: I don't know if they know it completely. I've never gotten the chance to really tell them myself. I've told them in interviews and people have written articles, but it's not really from me. I was able to write all my thoughts down and basically tell them, basically, how I'm feeling, you know? Just different stuff like that.

Kaya Scodelario's boyfriend gets beat up

Much like a scene out of Shameless, Elliott Tittensor’s trial turned into carnage earlier today after he was attacked outside of court.The actor – who plays Carl Gallagher in the Channel 4 comedy drama – had just pleaded guilty to driving without insurance at Highbury Magistrates court when a man in his 40’s approached him and punched him in the stomach, leaving the star’s girlfriend - Skins actress Kaya Scodelario - visibly distressed.

Elliot was in court today relating to a driving offence from earlier this year in which he allegedly ran over an 18-year-old boy who’d refused to move out of the way of his car, leaving the young man with permanent damage to his sight.
A witness to the alleged assault on the Shameless actor outside of court earlier, said:
"He (Elliott) was walking down the steps when a guy tapped him on the shoulder and just smacked him in the stomach all of a sudden. He came from nowhere, I don't know who he was."
After pleading guilty to driving without insurance Elliott as now been given a £750 fine as well as six penalty points on his licence.

Kanye Responds to Bush's Comments

Kanye West has responded to former president George W. Bush’s recent statement regarding his controversial post-Hurricane Katrina remarks. West’s surprising reply: Now that five years have gone by, he can sympathize more with the man he once said “doesn’t care about black people.”

Bush recently told Matt Lauer that hearing West say those words during a Hurricane Katrina benefit telethon was “a disgusting moment.” He recalled telling his wife at the time that West’s comments were in fact the single worst moment of his presidency. Today, an interviewer from a Houston radio station asked West for his thoughts on the matter.

Movie Poster: ‘The Beaver’ Starring Mel Gibson

Usually when the first poster for a movie is revealed, it means the film is coming soon. That unfortunately might not be the case for director Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, starring Mel Gibson from a script by Kyle Killen. The script was number one on the 2008 Black List and is about a man who finds a beaver puppet in the garbage and decides to communicate only using the beaver. Stars like Steve Carell and Jim Carrey hovered around the project, but when Gibson took over the lead role, the film reached a whole other level. It would be only the second film for the Oscar-winner since spewing anti-Semetic remarks in a drunken tirade. But then, just as that incident was seemingly forgotten and the film was finishing, Gibson found himself in hot water again after leaving his girlfriend violent voicemails with racial slurs. Jump to the present and Gibson is once again untouchable. His Leonardo DiCaprio Viking movie went away as did his cameo in The Hangover Part II. Thankfully, none of that takes away from a poster that’s kind of creepy and funny.

Gwen Stefani Suffered A Miscarriage Four Months Ago — Now She’s Considering Adoption

Gwen Stefani Pictures, Images and Photos

She already has two adorable boys, but Gwen Stefani has apparently been dreaming of adding another baby to her family. The National Enquirer is reporting that the 41-year-old was pregnant earlier this year, but suffered a miscarriage. “Because of her age, Gwen didn’t want to go public about her pregnancy until well into her second trimester,” a source tells the tabloid. “She was just about to make an official announcement when her worst nightmare happened — she miscarried.” The No Doubt singer, who has two sons Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 2, with husband Gavin Rossdale, was reportedly anxious to have a baby girl and “ecstatic” when she found out she was expecting. But the magazine reports that after suffering from the miscarriage, Gwen’s considering adoption.

The pregnancy speculation began last spring when Gwen was overheard telling friends that she and Gavin, 45, were trying for a baby girl. Soon after, she was seen covering up an apparent baby bump rather than donning her usual belly-baring shirts! She was also spotted wearing Sea-Band wristbands, which are used by expectant moms for morning sickness relief. The Rossdales even began extensive renovations on their Beverly Hills, CA home — adding two more bedrooms!

But after her devastating miscarriage, the Enquirer reports that Gwen and Gavin have decided to give adoption a try. “Now Gwen and Gavin are focusing on their two boys, and they’re planning for the future,” says the insider. “Gwen says she’s definitely pursuing adoption.”


Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston-JUST GO WITH IT teaser

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston team up opposite breakout beauty Brooklyn Decker in the new comedy 'Just Go With It,' in theaters February 11, and we have a sneak peek!

In 'Just Go With It,' Adam plays a plastic surgeon who is romancing Brooklyn's young, beautiful schoolteacher. In order to cover up a careless lie that he's at the tail end of a divorce, Adam enlists his trusty assistant/receptionist, played by Jennifer, to pretend to be his soon-to-be ex-wife. When the plan starts to backfire, everyone heads off to Hawaii for a weekend that will change the course of their lives.

The movie represents a breakout opportunity for Brooklyn, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and cover girl who just happens to be married to tennis superstar Andy Roddick. On the Hawaii set, Brooklyn told our own Samantha Harris, "The cast is absolutely amazing and they're just the best people to learn from; I can't imagine a better first big gig. They understand that I'm new and it's my first film, and Jen is just so encouraging and gives me tips here and there. They're these great comedians, so to watch them, it's on another level; it's really exciting."

Adam is producing the movie under his own Happy Madison banner, which is responsible for many of his own hits, such as 'Click,' '50 First Dates' and this past summer's 'Grown Ups.' Happy Madison also produces films for Adam's buddies including Rob Schneider, David Spade and Kevin James, with titles ranging from 'Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo' to 'The Benchwarmers' and 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

Taking advantage of her minimal spare time, Lea Michele ventured out with her "Glee" castmates to shop at the local Target in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday (November 3).

The Rachel Berry babe pushed her cart while joined by Chris Colfer and Amber Riley - with all three leaving with their own bagful of purchases.

The sighting comes amidst reports that a new episode of the hit FOX show will feature Gwyneth Paltrow singing Cee Lo Green's "F*** You".

According to THR, Miss Paltrow - who also is lined up for a CMA appearance next week- will perform the clean version of the tune similarly titled "Forget You" for television audiences of all ages.

It's an annual question during Hollywood's awards season: Why are there so few great roles for women? But this year that query has disappeared. To kick off The Hollywood Reporter's annual Awards Season Roundtable Series, we invited six of the most buzzworthy actresses -- Amy Adams (The Fighter), Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Helena Bonham Carter (Alice in Wonderland, The King's Speech), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Hilary Swank (Conviction) -- for a candid, hourlong discussion of their careers, the roles they wish they'd played and the sacrifices they make for their craft.

Jonah Hill: 'Fans will love 21 Jump Street reboot' + Casting

Jonah Hill has his expressed excitement over the upcoming big screen reboot of popular 1980s TV drama 21 Jump Street.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Hill, who co-wrote the screenplay for the project, promised that fans of the police drama will be pleased with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller's modern update.

"I think we really love the premise of young-looking cops going back to high school," he said.

Hill revealed that the remake is scheduled to begin production in "early next year" and the directors have not ruled a cameo by Johnny Depp, who shot to stardom while playing Officer Tom Hanson on the original series.

"We wrote a cameo for [Depp] so we hope he does it," Hill concluded.

MTV News visited Hill on the set of "The Sitter" to get an update on that exceedingly full dance card of his, and he did not disappoint. "That should be shooting early next year," Hill said of "21 Jump," which will see him act as star, co-writer and producer. "It will be my next movie. I won't do another movie before that movie as of right now." Of course, we had to ask the question on everyone's mind: Is Johnny Depp on board to reprise his role as Tom Hanson? "Hopefully, he does it. It would be awesome if he did it," Hill said, before jokingly directing a message directly at Depp. "Just do it, dude. Don't be an a--hole. Just be in the movie."


IDK. The cameo for johnny depp must involve something with peanut butter.

Also, add these cameos - Holly Robinson Peete as Tom Hanson's wife. Steven Williams and Fredric Forrest as a high school principal and counselor. Peter DeLuise and Dustin Nguyen as teachers. Richard Grieco as a drug dealer.

BTW before anyone says ~LOL BUT JOHNNY HATED THAT SHOW HE WON'T DO IT, please redirect yourself here.

MJ Fans: Oprah's Molestation Show Is No 'Coincidence'

An official MJ fan group ain't buying Oprah's "purely coincidental" excuse -- telling us, they are "angry and disappointed" that she's airing her interview with MJ's kids days after a special on child molestation.

A rep for the Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California tells TMZ, “We are both angry and disappointed in Oprah’s constant need to reference child molestation shows prior to airing Michael Jackson related episodes. Her tone seems to speak volumes.”

Oprah called the whole thing "purely coincidental" ... but MJ fans aren't convinced. The rep adds, “How can something so obvious be a coincidence?"

As we previously reported, Oprah's big interview with Michael Jackson's children is scheduled to air next Monday -- three days after Friday's big show ... entitled "200 Adult Men Who Were Molested Come Forward."
