Cheryl Cole snubbed by Cosmo

Roberts was awarded the gong for Ultimate Fashionista at last night’s Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year awards, while Cheryl didn’t even make an appearance, nor did she win any awards.

The redhead star, who launched her own make-up range for pale skin this year, accepted her award in a very haute couture creation.
The 25-year-old stormed on to the red carpet in an oriental-inspired green leopard print dress, completed with a long sheer skirt.

But her rival Cheryl Cole was nowhere to be seen at the awards, leaving Nicola to claim her award without the X Factor judge stealing her limelight.

LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 02:L-R Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd pose in the afterparty at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year awards 2010 held at Banqueting House on November 2, 2010 in London, England. 


Nadine Coyle's hoping every little helps...

Since launching her debut solo single Insatiable earlier this week, Nadine Coyle's sales have been dwarfed by her Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole.

So while Cheryl performed her new single Promise This to 13.6million X Factor viewers, the Northern Irish star ended up singing to a rather more modest audience.

The 25-year-old sang to several hundred retail managers at the annual Tesco Company Conference 2010 at the ExCel Centre in London's Docklands last night.

While a conference may seem like an unlikely place for Nadine to plug her new solo career, the singer is actually signed to Tesco's record label, meaning her single and album is only available exclusively through the supermarket chain.

Kerry Washington is The Condom Lady

Kerry Washington shares how she used to be known as ‘The Condom Lady’ on an upcoming episode of When I Was 17.

The 33-year-old Fantastic Four actress is featured on Saturday’s episode where the show interviews three celebrities and explores their personal life, friendships, and romantic relationships from when they were 17 years old.

Kerry is also getting ready to help promote her upcoming Tyler Perry film For Colored Girls. The new film, which also stars Janet Jackson and Thandie Newton, highlights issues that not only affect women of color but affect all women.

Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt: Why We Filed For Divorce

No one was surprised when Heidi and Spencer reconciled just two months after Heidi filed for divorce in July, and now the couple admits it was a stunt they pulled for career and financial reasons. Their latest paycheck comes from Life & Style for an interview about the charade.

The magazine's press release follows:

After blowing through $10 million, reality stars Heidi and Spencer are finally admitting to their faults and getting ready to file for bankruptcy. But that didn't stop them for giving it one last shot.

After they found out The Hills would not be renewed earlier this year, Heidi and Spencer concocted a plan to get attention by divorcing shortly after their anniversary. The reality duo tell Life & Style there was interest in a series covering their split from British TV network ITV, so they splashed down cash to move their act to Costa Rica. But that deal fell through and soon after, they called off the divorce proceedings and reunited.

"The divorce was real - just the idea behind it was different than most people's," Spencer tells Life & Style. "Divorcing was the only way to keep Heidi's career going because everyone hated me so much. Look at Sandra Bullock - her divorce from Jesse James was the best thing to happen to her image."

Now, they worry how they'll ever get themselves out of the cash crisis. "I can't make regular money because I was playing such an unlikeable character on TV to keep my checks coming. Who wants to hire the jerk from The Hills?"


Aussie Rugby Star in Dog Sex Romp

A shocking photo has emerged featuring Canberra Raiders and Australian rugby league star Joel Monaghan in a compromising position with a dog. Monaghan is shown holding the dog by the ears, while the dog appears to be licking Monaghan's genitals.

Monaghan, 28, described the incident as a "simulated act" meant to be a prank. "Joel can't blame anyone but himself for an act of stupidity that will haunt him for the rest of his life," manager Jim Banaghan said in a statement.
"Joel wants to make it clear that he was the one playing a prank on an absent team mate by simulating the act. There are no words of explanation that can be offered because none can be appropriate. Joel has to now face his family as well as fans and supporters with that shame and has already undergone counselling to help him cope with the consequences of what has happened."

Raiders Chief Executive Officer Don Furner said an investigation was underway.
"If he did it, it is something he will live with for the rest of his life," Furner told a media conference.
We don't know whether it's authentic but I am as appalled as everyone else."If he did do it, I don't know why he would do it."

The incident reportedly happened during the Raiders' Mad Monday celebrations following their finals loss to Wests Tigers.
The NRL says it will await the outcome of the Raiders investigation.The photo was reportedly posted on the internet on Monday before being taken down by the Melbourne radio station that had put it online.

The action was too late with the image being re-posted through Twitter.

Banaghan attacked those who had sent the image through cyberspace.

"The fact that someone has sought to compound the situation further by the use of social media only adds to the trauma," he said.

Lil Wayne Photo Shows MC Watching His Own Video

Weezy checks out his 'Steady Mobbin' clip, also featuring Gucci Mane, for the first time in latest post-prison picture.

Lil Wayne has been giving his fans glimpses of his first day of freedom with a series of pictures, and the latest shows the I Am Not a Human Being MC partaking in a little business and pleasure.

In the newest pic, which DJ Scoob Doo tweeted on Thursday (November 4), the megastar spitter checks out the video for his "Steady Mobbin' " collabo with Gucci Mane. The duo's respective legal entanglements forced the MCs to film each part of the video separately, and the picture shows Wayne viewing the clip, which premiered over the summer during Wayne's eight-month bid, for the first time; he also got a first glimpse at his "I'm Single" video.

In the photo, Wayne views the video on a laptop resting on a grand piano and appears to be focusing intently on the clip, his plate of fresh fruit untouched and covered in plastic wrap. However, Weezy does appear to indulge in a smoke, clutching what appears to be a cigar, with a plateful of ashes lying by the computer.


Bookmark for MTV News' complete, round-the-clock coverage of Lil Wayne's prison release and the ensuing homecoming celebrations.

The photo is a snapshot of what is shaping up to be a busy 72 hours for the newly freed superstar. Young Money President Mack Maine informed MTV News during his "RapFix Live" interview that over the next few days, Wayne will hang out with family, fly to Arizona on Friday for a court date and celebrate his release with a blowout bash in Miami on Sunday.

"There's a lot of smiles, I'm pretty sure some people are gonna be crying. ... It's just going to be mixed emotions and a lot of just rejoicing," Maine said of the expected vibe among Weezy's inner circle as they welcome him back. "Everybody is going to be happy to see him, and of course, we have parties coming up."

Uwe Boll Continues To Destroy Everything I Love

Lil Wayne Requested Beats Just Before Leaving Prison

'Mack, I need beats,' Young Money president Mack Maine recalls Wayne pleading in final Rikers Island conversation.

Before he was released from prison Thursday (November 4), Lil Wayne made it clear he would be focused on one thing as a newly freed MC: music.

Young Money president Mack Maine revealed to MTV News, during his "RapFix Live" interview on Wednesday, that Weezy spent their final conversation while he was locked up just rhyming, pushing for tracks to jump on as soon he was out.

"He rapped to me. The whole time, he rapped. He rapped a lot of different songs and just kept telling me, 'Mack, I need beats.' So the main ... priority when he comes home is to make sure he has tracks," Maine said. The Young Money exec added that Wayne was in top form, sounding "crazy" and "amazing."

Maine described Wayne as "hungry" and maintained the MC's humility remains the key to his success.

"Wayne treats every project like it's his first and that's way he keeps winning, [he] don't ever get comfortable," he said. "Wayne stays in the studio longer than anyone I know in the game."

Maine likened Weezy's superhuman work ethic to another superstar at the top of his game: NBA phenomenon Kobe Bryant.

"Kobe stays and practices, like, two hours after everyone leaves, after practice ends, and Wayne does the same exact thing. He might stay in the studio like 15 hours, like, honestly from 12 that night to like 1 the next day, the next afternoon," he said. Maine added that the megastar spitter goes at his craft "as if he never made a dollar from music."

Ultimately, Maine chalks up Weezy's enthusiasm to his love of the game.

"He really enjoys what he does," he said. "He doesn't treat it like work."

"Fast & Furious" Stars Hit the Beach

Temps may be cooling off stateside, but it's really heating up down in Brazil -- partly due to Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster's hot beach bodies!

The two, plus "Fast 5" co-stars Vin Diesel, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson, were spotted in Rio de Janeiro to continue filming the fifth entry to the high-octane franchise.

Paul and Jordana were spotted shooting back in July in Puerto Rico, where Jordana's character was sporting a baby bump!

Henry Rollins' Hipster Diss

In an exchange that could be called “heated” if not for all the awkward laughter, Henry Rollins and some hipsters got into it recently at a Lower East Side record store.

Rollins begins his anti-hipster tirade privately, quietly, almost idly, pointing out a couple albums and claiming they’re for an “elitist group of young people.” He’s being interviewed. He’s interrupted by a girl off-screen yelling “Henry Rollins is here?!” Visibly agitated, Rollins responds tersely, to the interviewer, “Here we go.”

We then hear the girl – and her friends – erupt in laughter, which Rollins immediately interprets as being directed at him, because “to these people, I’m kind of old and in the way, [and] am normal, and have sold out.” His interviewer laughs, obviously trying to passively quell what she can see is an escalating awkward situation.

“Get in the van man! Get in the van,” the off-screen girl yells, and here we can see something inside Rollins snap. He looks up from the CDs he’s thumbing through with the iciest of glares and begins to walk at a disturbing pace to the offending commenter.

How could you be so mean?

Taylegend Swiftalented is being forced to fight untrue allegations from money-hungry ex-manager and is counter-suing him after he caused her extreme grief!

As is customary, legal reps for Taylor Swift have launched a countersuit against Dan Dymtrow, the rather tedious singer's one-time manager who, as previously reported, launched his own litigation last month.

Dymtrow says he was unfairly cut out of the then fourteen year old Swift's rising career back in 2005, despite him having helped her get started as a recording artist. He says Swift's father - now her manager - conspired to cut him out of the deal when the singer signed to country indie label Big Machine. The lawsuit came after years of squabbling between Dymtrow and Swift Senior. And now the Swift team's counter lawsuit - according to the New York Post - claims the former manager's litigation is part of a harassment campaign to force the singer and her family into making some sort of settlement payment even though, they argue, he's not contractually due anything.

Their legal papers accuse Dymtrow of using "the litigation process to attempt to harass and cause grief". Still, on the up side, perhaps Taylor could use the ordeal of her former manager's litigation as inspiration for one of her terrible hit songs.


Looks like he has a case of jealousy to me. Is there a court for that?

Weasel near tears in video blog

The 24-year-old singer, who was in the bottom two acts again last weekend, is close to tears in her chat with fans, which has been uploaded on the official ITV site.

Waissel speaks about her early passion for music when she learnt to play the piano with her grandpa and claims that her sing-off track at the weekend, Etta James's 'Trust In Me', allowed her some "dignity".

She also blasts critics who have described her as an actress and a fake.

Chezza finally going Stateside?

CHERYL Cole can hardly hide her glee as she boards a flight home from Los Angeles after landing a £6million record deal on a flying visit.
Top brass at Universal summoned the Geordie out of the blue on Sunday after new single Promise This hit No 1 in the UK charts.

They said she could be HUGE in the States and offered to release new album Messy Little Raindrops in America next year. The deal will also include at least two more albums.

The X Factor judge was squired around LA by dancer pal Derek Hough, 25, and she tried to keep out of sight in a car.

Last night a source said: "Cheryl got a call from some very senior people at Universal saying they wanted to see her.

"They are the kind of people who when they say, 'Jump', you ask, 'How high?'.

"So she jumped on a plane and went to LA for 36 hours. Derek was there to ferry her to and fro and give her support as these big execs can be quite scary."

Jenny And Johnny Interview & Performances on World Cafe

"Big Wave"
"Scissor Runner"

Jenny Lewis, the childhood actress turned frontwoman for the indie-rock band Rilo Kiley, has teamed up with folk musician and boyfriend Jonathan Rice to create the warm-hearted duo Jenny and Johnny. Rice, who has two solo albums under his name, has been working with Lewis for years, either contributing to recordings or performing live, but this is the first time that they've put their heads and voices together to create an album.

The two began writing songs during Lewis' Acid Tongue tour, which they brought to a studio in Los Angeles with Pierre De Reeder and Jason Boesel. Together, they managed to piece together a series of demo recordings, playing each and every instrument, in only nine days. Liking what they heard, the duo then packed up for Nebraska to record a set of 11 tracks with Mike Mogis in ARC studios. I'm Having Fun Now is the result, and it's strange to think that the string of sunny pop tunes were recorded during the worst Midwestern snowstorm since the 1860s.

Lewis and Rice join World Cafe host David Dye to discuss the new album and perform live in the studio.

Selena Gomez Put Out a Statement to Her Frenemy, Demi Lovato


Those who know their Disney gossip are well aware of the fact that former BFFs Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have not been on the best of terms since their fallout. And while both girls have kept cordial when talking about each other, Selena may have broken the silence with an emotional statement about Demi’s recent decision to get help.

The quote supposedly made by Selena, 18, insists that she and Demi, 18, are still best friends. She even talks about recently visiting her troubled friend. The complete statement reads:

Demi is my best friend and I don’t care what has happened recently in the past. I feel like a horrible friend for not being there for her or acting like I haven’t been there. I recently visited with her and I’m glad she is seeking help and I hope that it gets better for her. I knew this time was going to come, but I didn’t think it would happen this way. I love Demi with my heart and wish her the best of luck and I definitely am standing by her side no matter what happens.”

If this is a genuine quote from Selena and she did indeed visit her, we have to give props to her for coming to Demi’s side so quickly.

Olivia Wilde looking flawless in Flare December 2010.

“The last two or three years, when I’ve really been tremendously lucky in this business, correspond with a real acceptance and comfort with myself. I don’t think that’s a coincidence,” says 26 year-old actor and leading babe on Maxim’s Hot 100, Olivia Wilde. In Hollywood, she adds, “You have to be unique, you have to embrace what makes you different.

Besides the fact that she’s drop dead gorgeous and happens to be a modern-day princess—her husband Tao Ruspoli is the son of an Italian prince—part of what makes Wilde stand out is the roles she chooses. Take the character she plays, a guardian warrior named Quorra, in this months Tron: Legacy for example. Wilde spent four months training in mixed martial arts and sword fighting for the part. “The characters I’ve been playing recently aren’t typical,” admits Wilde, who also has upcoming roles in the comedy Butter and Ron Howard’s western-sci-fi mash-up Cowboys & Aliens. Similar to Wilde, they’re independent, strong and very surprising.

Twitter ruins peoples lives! Married comedian engages in sex talk through Twitter, gets caught!


Jason Manford has apologised after it was revealed that he exchanged a series of messages with a female fan on Twitter.

The One Show host is said to have shared a number of "racy" and "sleazy" messages with 22-year-old Debra McNamee over the social networking site.

According to The Sun, the married comedian begged McNamee to send him photos of herself topless, and then described in detail how he had performed a sex act over the pictures.

McNamee said: "When I first sent a message to him I thought he would never reply. Famous people never do and I was surprised when he got in touch."

Collapse )Manford - a father to twin 1-year-old daughters - said: "I can see now that what started out as a bit of messing about and having a laugh on Twitter has been misjudged and I'd like to apologise to anyone that this has offended as that was the last thing I ever intended to do."

A source added: "Jason is deeply sorry and horrified at the upset he's caused his family and his wife. He's had a meteoric rise to fame and it's clear now the stardom has gone a little bit to his head. His wife and the BBC bosses will be rightly furious about his behaviour."

The 29-year-old stand-up lives in Cheshire with his wife Catherine, who is currently expecting the couple's third child.

Does Tyler Perry have a problem with black men?

I have never been a fan of Tyler Perry and his films.
Ever since I was dragged to his first one, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, back in 2005 by my then girlfriend who was a huge fan of his stage plays, I've had a ardent disdain for everything to come out of the Tyler Perry assembly line. He simply is not a talented filmmaker. Aside from the common assertions that Perry's films are reminiscent of blackface minstrel shows and that his characters are "cooning," he's not an adept storyteller. His dialogue is clunky and unrealistic, his narratives are worn, and his hard-line Christian ideology is served in large doses, dumping his messages on his audience with the nimbleness of an 18-wheeler.

So when it was announced that Perry would be in charge of adapting Ntozake Shange's classic choreopoem For Colored Girls who have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf for the screen, I was, like many fans of the work, dismayed. We couldn't wrap our minds around the idea of Perry, a man who has not dealt very well with representations of black women, typically vacillating between broken/down-trodden crack mothers who need a strong man in their life to make everything better and the sassy/too independent for her own good black women who need a strong man in their life to make everything better, being tasked with tackling this epic portrayal of black womanhood.

Justin Bieber Wants To Be Married With Children By 30

Mothers hide your daughters, Biebs has got babies on the brain! Justin Bieber might only be 16, but he is already planning out his future! ”I see myself being like, 30, like, married, like, probably,” the teenage superstar says. “I don’t know. It seems far away for me. But I want to be a young dad. I don’t want to be old and not be able to kick around the soccer ball, you know?” OMG! Justin, 30 might seem far away because you’re… um… 16! Take a breather and enjoy the single life! Your “Baby” and “One Less Lonely Girl” can wait!

What’s with all these young stars talking about parenthood? Taylor Swift, 20, says she wants babies too, just not right now. “Let’s say I’m 30 and still touring: I wouldn’t want to have a family, because I couldn’t balance it. But I really have no idea about the future. It’s so unexpected. Trust me!” says the singer. We hope T-Swift’s rumored love interest Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t have her changing her opinion! These singers are too young to be discussing marriage and children! Justin, you’re still a kid yourself, you don’t need one of your own!

Rosario Dawson Shares her Protest Playlist

Written by Rosario Dawson for Blackbook Magazine.
now with songs. thanks to recognitions for the idea

I went to bed last night thinking about this list, and woke up still thinking about it. It was so difficult for me to whittle it down to 10 songs, none of which I wanted to be obvious choices, and I ended up making it even harder by dividing them into different genres and areas of protest. I work with so many different organizations because so many different people have influenced me—once that spark of activism ignites inside you, it’s very difficult to narrow it down to just one cause. I wanted to craft a collection of songs that show how we’re all grappling with our own existential dilemmas, no matter what type of music we listen to, what part of the world we live in, or what language we speak. As people, we have the insatiable need to communicate and figure out what it all means.

Squints & Gyllenhoolahay Be Bumping Fugs S'Mores

There's more evidence to show that it's more than friendship between Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal. You know, aside from the dates they had in New York about two weeks ago, the two were also spotted spending the Halloween weekend together. Maybe they got tired of the bright lights on NY so they headed to California for the weekend.

It's really no longer just a friendly thing between them because they were seen holding hands while they were in the pool at the Post Ranch in Big Sur. Even good friends rarely hold hands, so this is just proof that they are more than friends!

Then there’s a cheesy moment when Taylor measured her height to Jake’s while standing on her tiptoes.

Jake knows how to treat a girl because Taylor laughed the whole time.

Aside from the swimming session, the two also went on an ice cream date the next day at McConnell’s in Santa Barbara. There were lots of flavors to choose from that they had a hard time deciding which to get. After some deliberation with the staff, Taylor settled for the yogurt with rainbow sprinkles and Jake got the Swiss chocolate chip flavored ice cream. Of course Jake was the one who paid for the sweet treats! Nice guy!

Let’s face it, Taylor and Jake is an item already! They are just not prepared to confirm it yet.

Ugh, Jake, really???

Kira will play Kaneda in Akira

or tetsuo, it hasn't been made clear yet... though, let's be honest, he's clearly more of a kaneda (by nature at least) than tetsuo. (and technically it is an offer... not accepted yet, js).

from SlashFilm (via tracking board):

Another rumor which is making the tracking board rounds today is that Zac Efron has apparently been offered the lead role in Albert Hughes’ upcoming live-action adaptation of the popular anime/Katsuhiro Otomo‘s six-volume manga Akira. I’m not able to confirm the offer, but one source tells me Efron is in talks, while another says that it is “far from a done deal.”

and the fanboys are already pissing their pants. but really, get over yourselves guys. he's a chill dude and he likes the same things you like, video games and comic books. he can't help that he's a dork stuck with a handsome face. and as much as they don't want to believe it, he would be a really good kaneda.

zac has been working on getting in on this project for a while Collapse )

i know... what about death note? :( but i have it on good authority that zac was not happy with the death note script. most death note fans seemed to agree that the leaked script (which was legit) showed that the writer just didn't get it.

and personally i don't mind remakes/adaptations either, as long as they are good and have their own raison d'être, but i know you guys will rage anyway. my biggest problem is they want it to be pg-13, but maybe that can change.

at any rate, zac is very excited about it... so i hope it turns out awesome and everyone ends up happy.

Mick Jagger responds to Keith Richards about his new autobiography

"I am, I see here, marginally endowed, if I read Keith's sniggering aright. I do not sing well, either. I am not polite to employees; indeed, I have even been known to say, "Oh, shut up, Keith," in band meetings. I do not appreciate the authenticity of the music or the importance of what we do. I want to "lord it over" the band, like James Brown. I am "insufferable." I slept with Anita.

Most of that is in just the first quarter of this overlong book, but a tattoo of my failings sounds all through it and culminates in almost 20 full pages of rambling invective near the end.

I don't mind this, really, for reasons I hope are understandable and will get into later. This is all from a guy pushing 70 for whom gays are still "poofters" and women "bitches." I think so many things about Keith. We were close, the two of us, for many years. We had known each other in grade school, if you can believe it, in the same undistinguished eastern suburb. Then we bumped into each other in a train station at 18 or so and started talking about the blues. We were different; I'd already been on TV with my father, who was a fairly notable expert on physical education at the time. Keith was … rougher, let's say. For the next nearly 10 years, we were rarely apart. Even after we were famous, we lived at each others' flats or houses. We were still very young, and, like puppies, we'd cluster together."

Taylor Swift sets Hot 100 chart record

Taylor Swift‘s amazing week just keeps getting better. The latest edition of Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart features an incredible 11 appearances from Swift, all songs from her new album, Speak Now. This is a record on three counts.

First: Swift is the only female artist to have that many songs on the Hot 100 at once. Her only competition, per Billboard, comes from David Cook, who also notched 11 charting singles right after he won American Idol in May 2008, and the Beatles, who had 12 songs on the Hot 100 for two weeks in April 1964 and 14 charting songs for another week in the same month.

Second: The Beatles’ charting singles came from multiple projects (Please Please Me, With the Beatles, and the soon-to-be-released A Hard Day’s Night). Cook’s were individually sold tunes that he had sung on Idol. This makes Swift the first artist ever to have this many simultaneously charting singles all drawn from a single album.

Third: Cook didn’t write his Idol songs, and the Beatles’ record-setting weeks included a number of covers like “Twist and Shout” and “Roll Over Beethoven.” Swift famously wrote all the songs on Speak Now by herself. So she’s also the only artist to have this many Hot 100 appearances all of which were written by the artist in question.


fyi - I did not make that pic, but I like Taylor and I can't stop lol'ing from it.

Best X Factor winner Shayne Ward takes it off for Cosmo and would totally fuck a guy

Shayne Ward poses naked for charity
The X Factor winner has posed wearing just a few rumpled bed sheets for the December 2010 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. The hunk from Manchester posed to raise awareness of male cancer for Everyman. He is naked for a good cause. Well done Shayne. He may be doing this to raise awareness of male cancer but he has probably caused some dangerously high blood pressure in heat towers. Shayne’s new single Gotta Be Somebody is out on 7 November and his new album Obsession is out on 15 November. We could write some more about Shayne, but it will just distract you from looking at his picture, we wouldn't want to do that. I mean, just look at him.

Collapse )
If Shayne Ward thinks that posing on the cover of a gay magazine in a wet T-shirt is going to in him some new fans, he’s absolutely correct. The X Factor winner and British pop star was not on my radar until I started seeing the cover of te new issue of UK’s Gay Times. I mean, how could you not notice that?

In the article inside, the straight and married Shayne talks about being mistaken for gay: ”I do get people who say ‘Yeah Shayne Ward’s gay’ but I don’t take offense. I’ve never had a problem with it. I have a lot of gay friends. I think it’s great. People look at me and say it because I look after myself. Even the missus as I was ironing my shirt this morning. She goes ‘You’re so gay!’ and I said ‘Wouldn’t you rather I was like this than be a slob?!’”

'Private Practice', Television and Sexual Assault

I had serious doubts when I heard that Private Practice was planning an episode in which one of the characters would be violently raped. But they pulled it off — mostly.
In the terms of the show, anyway, which are very specific: heightened melodrama, a commercial style as legitimate as anything else on television.

Now personally, I’ve never been a fan of Grey’s Anatomy. Even in the first season, when it was a sensation, the love triangles made me roll my eyes. I hated Izzie. But the one thing that series and its spinoff always had going for them, even to a non-fan like me, was their array of bold, messy, intimacy-impaired, tough-girl female characters, the favorite subject of the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes.

DanRad: 'Impersonating Grint was hard'

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he found it difficult to imitate Rupert Grint when filming the seven Potters scene for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.

The actor had to take on the role of six other characters as they transformed into Harry as part of a plan to distract Lord Voldermort and his Death Eaters.

"Oh, it was bizarre; some were easier than others to kind of impersonate," Radcliffe told Snitch Seeker. "But you know, Rupert was very difficult, because Rupert's got a - you know, his walk - you wouldn't expect that about Rupert.

"When you actually analyse it, Rupert's got a real wiggle in the hips when he walks. That was slightly unexpected. He was one of the slightly tricky ones."

He also admitted that it was "fun" to play Emma Watson's Hermione Granger.

"The girls were very, very funny. I think the crew were slightly worried that I was walking around a little too confidently in those heels of Fleur's," he said.

"Obviously it's an actor's dream - there are seven of me on screen at one time. It's fantastic!"

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One will open in cinemas on November 19.

Keith Olbermann Suspended from MSNBC

Statement from Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC:

"I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay."

Remember all that back-and-forth between Fox News and MSNBC regarding possible on-air fundraising? Well an offshoot from that is actual donating – which Politico reports Keith Olbermann did last week, in the maximum amount, to three Democratic candidates.

This donation came to one candidate directly after his Countdown interview that night – and it may be in violation of NBC’s rules.

Rep. Raul Grijalva was a guest on Olbermann’s MSNBC show last Thursday (video below), lamenting the campaign waged against him because of immigration-related SB-1070. “It comes at the end of a campaign when many of us have been battered for six months because of our opposition to 10-70,” he said on the show. It was the sixth time the congressman had appeared on the show in the last sixth months, according to Politico. In the end, Grijalva ended in a too-close-to-call race, eventually pulling out the victory on Thursday night.

But that night, Olbermann concluded his show, went over to Mailboxes Etc. around 30 Rock, and donated $2,400 to Grijalva, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and Jack Conway (running against Rand Paul). “Giffords had appeared on Olbermann’s program in May, as did Conway,” reports Politico.

So what does this mean? NBC has rules regarding employees donating to political campaigns, discouraging it and impressing that it’s a “a breach of journalistic independence to contribute to the candidates they cover.” Here’s a key part of that policy: “You should report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee.”

Beyonce’s Fame Comic Book—At Least, We Think It’s Beyonce

Beyonce tops Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list, and yet somehow she's powerless to stop Bluewater Comics from publishing the Fame comic book based on her life story.

My Chemical Romance's B-Side For "Na Na Na" Has Leaked

With their catchy as hell single "Na Na Na" being released on Monday in the UK we have My Chemical Romance's B-Side that comes along with it.

Ryan Kwanten Talks 'Red Hill', Keeping Accents & That He Wouldn't Go Completely Bare for a Magazine

The things we knew about Ryan Kwanten last week: he’s gorgeous, he plays the irrepressibly charming southerner Jason Stackhouse on “True Blood,” and he’s starring in indie outlaw-thriller “Red Hill,” opening November 5.

The things we didn’t know about Ryan Kwanten: he’s no stranger to the big screen, he’s as down-to-Earth as they come… and he’s very, very Australian.

Kwanten tells NextMovie, “The very first job I got out here in the States, I got as an American. The day I was doing my first scene, I thought it was safe to use my natural voice when I wasn’t shooting, but I was really scared they would hear my Australian accent and you know… ‘you’re fired.’”

Another dose of 'Ab Fab' coming your way?
It looks like La Bête star Joanna Lumley will be re-teaming with her old chum Jennifer Saunders for a reunion of the BBC comedy series “Absolutely Fabulous.” asked Lumley of the rumors swirling about that the misguided fashion mavens Patsy Stone and Edina (”Eddie”) Monsoon would party their way back onto the screen.

“I’ve heard talk, too,” Lumley confessed. “Jon Plowman, who’s the executive producer, wrote to Jennifer, and Jen wrote to me before I left [England] and said, ‘Let’s talk through it. What do you think?’ And I said, ‘Bring it on.’ Because we’re all still here. Mother’s still alive – the wonderful June Whitfield. Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks – the basic five J’s – all our names began with J. We’re all still alive and available – ish – to do it, and I think we just have to do it. And the great thing is that because in our show, we fast-forwarded to where they’re very old and nearly dead and practically plugged into vodka machines and things. It doesn’t matter how beyond [the original series] we do it because we know they’ve been that, that they still were Patsy and Edina at the time. So this makes it heaven!”

The popular series debuted in 1992 on BBC and traced the booze-fueled antics of ill-equipped PR “mogul” Eddie Monsoon and her chain-smoking best friend and fashion editor Patsy Stone. An uptight disapproving daughter, absent and-minded mother and completely incompetent assistant figure into the series that ran through 1996 and returned for a 2001-2004 run.

R.E.M. Tap Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith for Next Album

R.E.M. have finished their fifteenth studio album, called Collapse Into Now (due in early 2011) — so what can fans expect? According to multi-instrumentalist Mike Mills, a more "expansive" sound than on 2008's Accelerate and some special guests, including Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith, and Peaches!

"With Accelerate we were trying to make a point by making the songs as short and as fast as possible," Mills tells SPIN. "So we wanted this new one to be more expansive. We wanted to put more variety into it and not limit ourselves to any one type of song. There are some really slow, beautiful songs; there are some nice, mid-tempo ones; and then there are three or four rockers."

Mills adds that while Accelerate's lyrics were politically-inspired, Collapse Into Now is a "very personal, very human record. Not only to [singer] Michael [Stipe], but personal and human in the sense of the narrative of the songs, the protagonists of the songs."

The 12-track release — produced by Garret "Jacknife" Lee (Snow Patrol, U2), who plays alongside R.E.M.'s Peter Buck in alt-country supergroup Tired Pony — includes rocker "All the Best," and the album's closing song, "Blue," which features vocals from Patti Smith.

A yet-to-be-named song, which Mills promises will feature the word "alligator" in its title, features Peaches on vocals and Smith's longtime collaborator Lenny Kaye on guitar.

"It Happened Today" features Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder on vocals.

Another, "Walk It Back," was written during studio sessions in New Orleans, the product of the band's new approach to writing and recording. Instead of penning a batch of tunes and tracking them in a marathon session, R.E.M. scheduled sessions in different cities — Berlin, Nashville, New Orleans — with breaks between to write and rewrite songs.

"It's also fun for us to go to the cities we really love and spend some time," says Mills. After a day's work in the studio, the band would go out to dinner. "It's really important to go out, get great food, shrug off the debris of the day, and just be friends and have a good time. In Berlin you drink beer and eat wurst. In New Orleans you eat Cajun food and drink Sazerac. In Nashville we ate a lot of fried chicken."

Red Band Trailer for 'Friends With Benefits,' Starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis

Here's the trailer for "Friends With Benefits," starring Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson, Jenna Elfman, Bryan Greenberg, Richard Jenkins and Woody Harrelson.

In the movie, a young female headhunter (Kunis) in New York convinces a potential recruit (Timberlake) to leave his job in San Francisco behind and accept a job in the big apple. Despite an attraction to each other, both realize they're everything they've been running from in a relationship and decide to become friends... with benefits. It's the perfect arrangement--until they realize there's no such thing as no strings attached. "Friends With Benefits" opens July 22, 2011.

Gabriel García Márquez publishing first book in six years

Colombian author and Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez is putting the finishing touches on a new novel and is about to publish his first book in six years, his editor said Thursday.

The book out Friday in Spain and Latin America, "Yo no vengo a decir un discurso," (I Didn't Come to Give a Speech) is a compilation of 22 speeches García has given throughout his life, Random House Mondadori editor Cristóbal Pera said at its presentation.

García did not attend the unveiling, but Pera said the author "is as good as can be expected of an 83-year-old man who has come out undefeated in his battle with cancer."

The editor said García, who was last seen in public two weeks ago in Mexico City, was busy completing his latest novel "En agosto nos vemos," whose title in English means "We'll Meet in August" and which awaits a publishing date.

García's compilation of speeches will be his first book published since "Memorias de mis putas tristes" (Memories of My Melancholy Whores) in 2004.

He has saved the world, on at least 10 occasions. He has his own football team, Motor Racing competition and his own tennis tournament. He paints, teaches typing and even dabbles in World History. He may be a medical professional, but he still loves to party.

Considering he is turning 25 this October, Mario has accomplished a lot in his lifetime.

Super Mario Brothers was first released in 1985. Some estimations now put the number of installments of Mario and Mario-related spin off games at over 250 titles. That is a lot of ground for one little plumber to cover. Mario did feature in several games before SMB, such as Donkey Kong and the original arcade game Mario Bros, but Nintendo seems to have decided 2010 is the 25th birthday of our mustache-wearing friend.

The 18th October also marked the 25th birthday of another icon of video gaming. The NES – Nintendo Entertainment System – was also launched in the United States and Europe in 1985 (Japan already had it back in 1983). To mark the two events, Nintendo has issued new marketing materials, a special edition Wii and the forthcoming Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition, to name just a few of their efforts.

In our attempt to celebrate the anniversary of such an influential console, which revolutionized home video gaming and set the standard for consoles to be measured by for years to come, we present to you our top ten NES games of all-time. This is a subjective list, which takes into account personal opinion as well as influence the games had and marketplace success. This list is far from definitive, but constitutes titles which believes are classics, and you should go out and play, if you haven’t already.

Amazing Facts About Facebook And Breakups

Have you ever wondered when people break up? Look at the graph below. It is based on data mined from Facebook of when users were most likely to change their relationship status to "single."

I watched a TED talk the other day from David McCandless called “The beauty of data visualizations“. It was quite amazing and included lots of different datasets. One of them was about Facebook and breakups. David and his team scanned over 10,000 status-updates and set out to learn more about when people broke up. This is what they learned:

•A big peak right before Spring Break
•Most breakups are announced on Mondays
•People like to start the summer being single
•A big peak right before Christmas
•The lowest day throughout the whole year is Christmas Day (thank God)

I never stop being amazed about how much Facebook can actually teach us about human behavior. When everything is being digitalized and searchable, some really interesting stuff appears.

Well then it's definitely a good thing that she's starring in a new film titled, THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN. The screenplay was written by Fischer's husband, Lee Kirk. It's the story of, "an offbeat romantic comedy about two outsiders -- a misunderstood street performer and the soft spoken zoo worker who falls for him."

Fischer will play the zoo worker with AWAY WE GO's Chris Messina taking on the role of the street performer. Malin Akerman and Topher Grace are co-starring. Kirk will be on double duty as he is directing the film as well. Fischer will produce alongside Molly Hassell (VAMPS, EDMOND), Michael Nardelli and Brent Stiefel.
