US family wants to be biggest family in the world if god allows it

The Bates look set to become the biggest family in the world one day, and are one baby behind the Duggars of Arkansas, who have 19

Super-parents Gil and Kelly Bates love babies so much, they can't stop having them. The family that prays together... gets bigger and bigger: Meet devoutly Christian Mr and Mrs Bates and their EIGHTEEN children.

The couple, from Tennessee, U.S., celebrated the birth of their 18th child a month ago and are already praying for more. The Bates look set to become the biggest family in the world one day, and are one baby behind the Duggars of Arkansas, who have 19.

'We will have many more children if God allows it,'
said proud dad Gil, 45, a tree surgeon.

'Children are a blessing and God has blessed us many, many times.' Devoted mum Kelly, 43, said: 'We just love children and every baby brings extra joy to our family. The most exciting time is when a new baby comes. 'We all wonder are the boys going to be ahead, or are the girls going to be ahead?'

The couple married 23 years ago, and Kelly has been pregnant for almost every year. Their massive brood range includes Zach, 21, Michaela, 20, Erin, 18, Lawson, 17, Nathan, 16, Alyssa, 15, Tori, 14, Trace, 13, Carlin, 12, Josie, 11, Katie, 10, Jackson, 8, Warden, 7, Isaiah, 5, Addallee, 4, Ellie, 3, Callie-Anna, 1, and Judson Wyatt, one month.

'I didn't want any children at all when I was younger,' said Kelly. 'I wanted to be a career woman. I didn't enjoy babysitting. But over time God changed my heart.'

King Firth talks about a third Bridget Jones

"Extra" attended the 2010 AFI Fest Presented by Audi's premiere of "The King's Speech" and talked with its stars, Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, along with director Tom Hooper, about their Oscar-buzz movie and its significance.

Firth also commented on whether there will be a third "Bridget Jones" movie, saying, "I think there's a chance. The writing department's been busy. A sequel is one thing, but a third, now that they've aged a bit, could be far more interesting."

Pfierce Pfabulous Pflawless Pfeiffer does something human

We all have messy moments at some point or another. But unfortunately for Michelle Pfeiffer she happened to have hers in a public place with cameras there to catch the offence.
The beautiful 52-year-old Scarface actress was on a dinner date with her writer-producer husband David. E. Kelley at Italian eatery Madeo's in Beverly Hills last night and she appeared to have spilt some liquid down the front of her tunic top.

Looking relaxed and happy in jeans and a simple grey v-neck silk shirt, Michelle seemed oblivious to the stain clearly visible on the front of the top.The smiling couple held hands as they walked from the restaurant to their waiting car showing that the romantic spark is still very present in their relationship even after almost 20 years.Michelle and David, who is the creator of shows like Ally McBeal and The Practice, have been married since 1993 and have two children together. 

Michelle has eased off on her acting career in recent years having taken a break from the industry since filming Personal Effects in 2009 alongside Ashton Kutcher and Kathy Bates. Her husband, however, who specialises in writing legal dramas, has spent the past year working on two television shows, Harry's Law and Legally Mad.

“Oh, God, well, lots of women, because I love women so much. I think that because of my masculinity—I would probably put myself with someone very feminine like Michelle Pfeiffer. Actually I find Michelle fantasically attractive. I’m always kind of rushing up to her and kissing her on the mouth because she’s so delicious. She’s soooo delicious”

Katie Waissel is reportedly planning to sing Elton John's 'The Bitch Is Back' on this week's X Factor.

According to The Mirror, Waissel hopes that her song selection will show viewers a more playful side to her character and demonstrate that she has a sense of humour about herself.

It was previously confirmed that this Saturday's X Factor live show will have an Elton John theme.

A source said: "Katie has been a diva but has also had her fair share of problems on the show, and the idea is this song will show she doesn’t take herself too seriously.

"The track shows she is up for a laugh and can see she isn't universally liked. It will be a bit tongue-in-cheek. She knows she can't be everyone's cup of tea but wants to get across a jokey element."

However, the source noted: "This could be the perfect song to do that, but clearly some people might take it literally because they have already made their mind up about her."

Waissel recently defended herself against accusations that she is 'fake', claiming that she is "just a girl that wants to go and sing".

Glee newbie Darren Criss (adorably) talks gay teens

Darren Criss made a big splash on "Glee" last night -- not only with his fantastic rendition of "Teenage Dream" but also with a bullied teen storyline that couldn't be more timely, well-written or have a more adorable frontman.

But the pressure of shining a network TV light on the subject isn't lost on Darren, as he explained in a new interview:

PopWrap: Given the current rash of gay teen suicides, do you feel more pressure bringing Blaine into the mix?
Darren: Like any tragedy, it’s all about bringing attention to it and addressing the issue. It’s not new. This has been happening for years and I think the gay teen component is at the forefront, but it’s so much bigger than that. So yes, it’s heightened the stakes, but in a weird way, it’s inspiring us to be a lot stronger about what we’re saying. I’m no longer just acting opposite Chris Colfer, I’m also talking to the bullied teens and the parents who’ve lost kids to this. There’s people listening now, it’s kind of empowering.

I am already crushing on him so hard guys ... check out the whole IV under the cut

Teenage Dreams and Nightmares: Talking ‘Never Been Kissed’ With Ryan Murphy of ‘Glee’

In the first part of an interview published on Tuesday, Ryan Murphy, a creator and executive producer of “Glee,” talked about why he chose to take on the subject of gay bullying in Tuesday night’s episode, called “Never Been Kissed.” In this second installment, Mr. Murphy answers questions raised by the episode, in which Kurt (Chris Colfer) meets Blaine (Darren Criss), a gay student in a rival singing group, and stands up to a bully who persecutes him for being gay, while his fellow glee-choir members learn they’ve been tormenting Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) without realizing it. (One last warning that if you haven’t watched the episode yet, this interview will give away plot details.)

'Glee' isn't broken: A defense against the backlash

For a show named "Glee," it's sure created a lot of strife and anger around the Zap2it offices.

Recently, the Zap2it editorial collective decided it was high time to write up one of our TV Show Rehabs in which we offer up 12 Steps to Show Recovery. I was hesitant to participate for a few reasons, which I'll discuss below. Thus, I was elected to defend "Glee," which isn't an easy task since I actually do have issues with the show. Believe me, there have been many times I've wanted to throw the clicker I was singing into at the TV screen. I just don't think the show deserves the amount of outrage and contempt from the backlash it's received.

Therefore, why "Glee" doesn't need a Rehab now:

1) Timing

I could have understood proposing a Rehab during the last half of the first season. Those back nine episodes were increasingly disjointed, overblown and painful. Frankly, I think Ryan Murphy and the "Glee" crew listened to the criticism then and have already addressed them. The Season 2 premiere was one of the strongest, funniest, most irreverent and cleverly written episodes. There have only been four new episodes (since the writing of this post) so far, and I've liked the majority of them. (My episode grades: "Audition" A+, "Britney/Brittany" B-, "Grilled Cheesus" A-, "Duets" A)

[UPDATE: Since originally writing this, "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" aired. Ugh. Grade level: C. But still, that's 4 out of 5 episodes I pretty much liked]

P!nk is expecting!

POP punk Pink is gonna be a mommy!

According to the new issue of Us Weekly magazine, the Sober hitmaker — who’s married to motocross hunk Carey Hart — is pregnant with her first child.

“She’s 12 weeks along,” an insider said.

“She wanted to do it between tours, when she has some time off.”

The source revealed that after Pink’s 2008 split from Hart, she “was determined to make the relationship solid. Now she’s really happy, and she’s excited she got pregnant so fast! She’ll be a brilliant mother.”

And when Pink’s kid is born, it’ll need to be on it’s best behavior — the superstar thinks it’s important for parents to be tough on their children.

“I think parents need to beat the c**p outta their kids… I think the whole spanking thing and how it’s gotten all PC (politically correct) is for the birds,” she said.

“My dad put me through a wall; it’s the only reason I’m still alive.

“I deserved it. I would have kicked me out when I was eight… I was not comfortable with authority or rules. I was bad.”

Kanye West and George Bush apologize to each other, sorta

"I didn't have the grounds to call him [Pres. George W. Bush] a racist," [Kanye] West said. "I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that we as human beings don't always choose the right words."

Shown a tape of West's remarks, Bush said he appreciated them and forgave him.

"I'm not a hater," he [Bush] said. "I don't hate Kanye West. I was talking about an environment in which people were willing to say things that hurt. Nobody wants to be called a racist if in your heart you believe in equality of races."

Note to Kanye: Apologize for the Taylor Swift thing, sure. But to Bush? What you did made you liked by all the right people, and hated by all the wrong people. Don't apologize for that, you wuss.

British children's television suffered a great loss Monday after a beloved giraffe featured on the hit ITV drama Wild at Heart was killed by lightning, reports the BBC.

The seven-year-old giraffe named Hamley, which was part of the show's cast for the past five years and had already taped scenes for the upcoming season, suffered the tragedy at a South African reserve where the show is filmed. The cast and crew were busy filming scenes off the reserve and did not witness the incident.



Rihanna's 'What's My Name?' Rockets to No. 1 on Hot 100

Rihanna rockets to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 to be released tomorrow (Nov. 11), as "What's My Name?," featuring Drake, vaults 60-1.

The song debuts at No. 1 on Digital Songs with sales of 235,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It claims Airplay Gainer honors on Radio Songs, charging 24-16 (48.6 million in audience, up 30%, according to Nielsen BDS).

"What's My Name?" supplants Ke$ha's "We R Who We R," which dips to No. 5 after launching atop the survey last week. The song falls 1-2 on Digital Songs (220,000, down 21%), though it advances 49-29 (35.3 million, up 45%) on Radio Songs.

"What's My Name?" marks Rihanna's eighth career Hot 100 No. 1 and third this year. She previously reigned in 2010 with "Rude Boy" (five weeks, beginning in March) and as a guest on Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" (seven weeks, starting in July).

Rihanna is the first artist to score a trio of Hot 100 leaders in a year since she achieved the feat in 2008, when she ruled with her own "Take a Bow" and "Disturbia" and added vocals to T.I.'s "Live Your Life."

"What's My Name?" is Drake's first Hot 100 No. 1 among 23 chart visits.

The magazine reports that two of the 6-year-old sextuplets Collin and Alexis have been expelled from their private school in Pennsylvania and are now being homeschooled.

‘A Single Man’ Director Tom Ford Has New Film In The Works

Project Is ‘Very Different’ To ‘A Single Man’ And Is Being Developed By Ford ‘From Scratch’

Tom Ford‘s adaptation of Christopher Isherwood‘s iconic 1964 novel “A Single Man” was one of the most accomplished directorial debuts in recent history, though, with the former creative director of fashion houses Gucci and Yves Saint-Laurent behind the camera, we probably should have seen the immaculate shooting, exquisite detailing and emotional richness coming. One of the underpinning successes of the film was, of course, star Colin Firth who earned an Oscar nomination for his performance, a career-defining one which has subsequently led to his highly-lauded performance as King George VI in Tom Hooper‘s “The King’s Speech,” itself tipped to score the actor the major prize this time around.

Speaking with Moviefone, Firth briefly mentioned Ford’s next mysterious cinematic venture though, at the same time, cast doubt on if he would return to work with the director. “I do know that he has plans to make another movie,” Firth noted. “I consider him a very good friend, but he won’t give anything away to me about what the film is. I know, whatever it is, it’s gonna be very different from ‘A Single Man.’ I’m jealous of whoever’s going to be in it.”

Ford has been dropping hints about his follow-up since doing press for his debut—having described it as something “very different” to his debut, something he’s developing “from scratch” presumably meaning it’s an original screenplay and additionally noting a “need to make my next movie in London because that’s where my design studio is, and it was a little hard making [‘A Single Man’] in LA because my design team had to come with suitcases full of clothes on the weekends for fittings.”

Ford has remained quiet since those early hints and has no problem redirecting inquiries about the project by saying, “I’m not telling you anything about it.” We presume Ford is hard at work developing the project and frankly, we couldn’t be more excited at the prospect of a new feature by the accomplished helmer.

Zooey Deschanel Rumored For 'Spider-Man' Cast

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So, perhaps there is another female lead in "Spider-Man" after all -- but, nope, it's still not Mary Jane Watson!

There's a new rumor floating around that actress Zooey Deschanel is talking with director Marc Webb about joining the cast of "Spider-Man" as Elizabeth "Betty" Brant. A member of the Daily Bugle staff working under totalitarian editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson, Brant is typically considered a supporting character at best in the "Spider-Man" mythos, though Webb allegedly has big plans for her.

"He wants a strong performer to carry the role and Zooey fits the bill perfectly," an alleged insider tells Showbiz Spy. "The role is hers if she wants it.”

Deschanel has worked with Webb in the past, starring in "(500) Days of Summer" as the titular Summer, a free-spirited young woman who embarks on a turbulent romance with a co-worker played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gordon-Levitt was once considered a favorite amongst fans for the role of Peter Parker, though the part eventually went to Andrew Garfield.

It's far from confirmed that Brant will have a role in the next "Spider-Man" movie, and even less certain that the role would go to Deschanel. But the character has had a role in previous Spidey flicks, albeit a small one, played by actress Elizabeth Banks.

For now, count Deschanel amongst the rumored "Spider-Man" contenders including the likes of John Slattery and Sam Elliott for JJJ. Keep it locked into Splash Page as more news develops.

Kim Kardashian's "Weird" Reaction to Being Single

Bret Michaels recently denied having an affair with Miley Cyrus' mother, Tish.

"I've been friends with her family forever," Michaels explained on 'Fox & Friends'. "It started out with me and Miley simply working on a song together. Her mom, Tish, likes 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn,' the first concert Miley ever saw was Poison, and so they wanted to remake it for the new record."

During his visit to PopEater, we asked the rocker if hurtful rumors ever stop him from enjoying his fame.

"You have to develop nerves of steel," he tells us of being in show business. "It doesn't mean you have to like it. Rumors come up, rumors go away. If it's the truth, I'll address it and say, 'Look, it was me, I was stupid.'"

"If something comes up -- and I use the example of the Tish thing -- completely false, but it's juicy. Most times people say you're supposed to be innocent, but most people assume you're guilty,"
he adds.

Walt Disney Animation Studios is returning the honey-loving teddy bear and his pals to their hand-drawn animated roots for a feature film dipping into theaters July 15, 2011. The new "Winnie the Pooh," the first big-screen "Pooh" adventure from Disney animators in more than 30 years, will more closely resemble the classic short films from the 1960s and '70s.

"We wanted to create a movie for the big screen that had the charm and wit of those original shorts," said Peter Del Vecho, the film's producer. "What originally endeared all of us — adults and children — to these characters was that they were stuffed animals that came to life in the imagination of a child. We wanted to rekindle that imagination in a big way."

HBO pulls the plug on 'the Miraculous Year'

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

HBO has opted not to proceed with John Logan's hourlong pilot The Miraculous Year, which was directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I hear that the appeal of the project -- an exploration into a high-powered New York family: a self-distructive Broadway composer (Norbert Leo Butz), his powerful painter father Alex (Frank Langella) and his attorney sister Mandy Vance (Hope Davis) -- was probably too narrow. The cast of the pilot also included Eddie Redmayne, Linus Roache and Patti LuPone as well as guest stars Susan Sarandon and Lee Pace. HBO has had a busy pilot pickup year starting with the Michael Mann/David Milch collaboration Luck, which has already been ordered to series. The Diane Keaton starrer Tilda is still awaiting word while backup scripts are being written and reshoots on the pilot are being done. HBO's recent pilot orders include the Justin Theroux/Steve Coogan comedy Documental, Armando Iannucci's comedy Veep, Alan Ball's drama All Signs of Death and the untitled Lena Dunham/Judd Apatow comedy.

Murphy's Mother Planning Tell-All Book

BRITTANY MURPHY's mother is set to pay tribute to her late daughter in a new biography.

The Clueless actress passed away in December 2009 from pneumonia, and the tragedy was compounded when her husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack, died just five months later.

Their passings have since been tarred by a series of salacious rumours concerning missing money and claims Murphy's mother, Sharon, slept in the same bed as her son-in-law after the actress died.

Sharon spoke out to deny the rumours at the time and she is now hoping to silence tabloid gossip about her daughter by telling her story in a new picture book.

In a statement released on what would have been Murphy's 33rd birthday (10Nov10), she says, "This book will be my way of celebrating and honouring her extraordinary life and career. Brittany was a kind, loving person who enjoyed each day; she was my life. I am looking forward to everyone reading the accurate account about my daughter, her life, loves and career.”

A portion of the book's proceeds will be donated to charity.


It's her birthday today :(

Carrie Ann Inaba: America Is Ready for Same-Sex Couples on Dancing

Israel's version of Dancing with the Stars currently features a same-sex couple – will America's favorite show be next?

"I would love it," DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba tells PEOPLE. "I fully support that and I think America is ready for that. Our country is much more accepting of same sex couples and it would be great for the show to reflect that."

So, is there a star out there willing to be part of the first same-sex pair?

Ryan Seacrest told actress Portia de Rossi Thursday on his KIIS-FM radio show that show producers have said she's "on the top of their list," but that he assumed she would pass. "I figure if you're going to pass, why not pass here?" he said.

But de Rossi insisted she'd consider it. "I'm not going to pass! Let me think about it," she said. "I used to be a ballet dancer. It's not completely a pass. You never know!"

When asked about the de Rossi casting rumors, Inaba says she'd be all for it. "I don't cast the show," she said, "but I think it would be great and I'd show up in my rainbow colors and fully support it."

'Glee': Dot-Marie Jones talks about Coach Beiste

Dot-Marie Jones has quickly become a breakout character on this season of Glee, thanks to her heartbreaking and hilarious performance as McKinley High’s newest faculty member, Coach Shannon Beiste. The series’ most recent episode, “Never Been Kissed,” was a showcase for the 46-year-old actress: In the episode, her character revealed that she still had never been kissed at the age of 40. (On the upside, she did get to pucker up with Matthew Morrison mere seconds later.)

Jones had previously guest-starred on various series, like Married… with Children and Lizzie McGuire, but now has her biggest role to date on the hit Fox series. And it’s all because of a lucky trip to the grocery store. “It’s true that I ran into [Glee co-creator] Brad Falchuk at Whole Foods,” says the actress, who knew Falchuk from doing guest appearances on Nip/Tuck. “I didn’t corner him like the National Enquirer said and refused to let him go until he said he’d consider me for a part. I said, ‘Oh my god, I love [Glee]!’ I said, ‘Please, you guys, write me something!’ Not two months later, my agent called me and said that [Glee co-creator] Ryan Murphy wanted to know my availability in mid-July because he was writing something for me. I mean, come on. I know how lucky I am. There are 5,000 people who would do this job in a second and 5,000 behind them.”

The Eagle - trailer and movie poster, Jamie Bell out-acts Channing Tatum

Thank you Google Alerts!

In 140 AD, two men – master and slave – venture beyond the edge of the known world on a dangerous and obsessive quest that will push them beyond the boundaries of loyalty and betrayal, friendship and hatred, deceit and heroism…The Roman epic adventure THE EAGLE stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell and is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald. 20 years earlier, Rome’s 5,000-strong Ninth Legion, under the command of Flavius Aquila, marched north carrying their treasured golden Eagle emblem. They never returned; Legion and Eagle simply vanished into the mists. Hearing a rumor that the Eagle has been seen in a tribal temple in the far north, Flavius’ son Marcus (Tatum), determined to restore the tarnished reputation of his father, is galvanized into action. Accompanied only by his slave Esca (Bell), Marcus sets out into the vast and dangerous highlands of Scotland – to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father’s memory, and retrieve the hallowed Eagle. Along the way Marcus realizes that the mystery of his father’s disappearance may well be linked to the secret of his own slave’s identity and loyalty – a secret all the more pressing when the two come face-to-face with the warriors of the fearsome Seal Prince (Tahar Rahim).

Rolling Stone Italia interviewed Jonny Greenwood about the upcoming film Norwegian Wood which he composed the score for, and answered a few questions about Radiohead's next album.

And your new album?
We are almost finished, then we will go on a big tour.

Will you sell in a formal way or invent a new way to sell it?
A: We don’t know yet, the time that we did In Rainbows it seemed right to experiment selling it for free.

What kind of album will it be?
A: 10 pieces (tracks) maybe some more. I don’t know for certain. In the group I am somebody who becomes nervous and irritated quickly and I’m not taking too much part in the serious part of the album.

Reasons Why Jake Gyllenhaal Should Dump Taylor Swift and Date Anne Hathaway

Ok, so, Jake Gyllenhaal is probably not scouring the Internet, looking for advice on his love life. (Unless he's reading this YourTango article on anal sex and trying to figure out a way to work it into the conversation of his and Taylor's next ice cream date, and, then, maybe.) But, if he were, we'd hit on his head the way his mother should and ask him, "What are you doing with this little girl? You're almost 30 years old! You should be dating a woman!"

And then we'd oh-so-casually ask him how his friend and co-star Anne Hathaway (who's a mature, almost 28) is doing because, clearly, from this list we've put together below, she is totally meant to be his girlfriend, if not his future wife, whereas 20-year-old Taylor Swift (who probably still says "ew" and giggles) is too young and wholesome to even be a fling.

So, here are our 9 reasons why Jake should dump Swifty and start dating the divine Miss Hathaway asap:

John Mayer Banging Married Food Network Star Giada De Laurentiis?

Ladies man John Mayer is known for boinking a plethora of women but sources say the singer is now hooking up with a married woman.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Star Magazine is reporting that singer John Mayer hooked up with Food Network chef Giada De Laurentiis.

A source saw John and Giada at New York’s Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel last month.

“John had one hand on the small of her back,” the eyewitness reveals. “They looked like two people who were going to go home.”

Another eyewitness saw them at the Hotel Gansevoort, “where they disappeared into a suite together.”

De Laurentiis, who has a 2-year-old daughter with husband Todd Thompson, laughed off the rumor saying, “I was at The Standard that night,” but that she didn’t even see him there.

“I’ve met him and he’s a great guy, but I just like his music. That’s all,” she added.

Juicy! We wouldn’t put it past John Mayer to hook up with a married woman!


JMayer & GBewbs have both put out statements today that this is false.

ONTD's celebrity sightings!

I thought it would be fun to have a post for celebrity spots - like they do in Heat magazine, for those that are familiar with it.

Every week they have a feature full of 'spots' that people have sent in, and the editor picks the 'top spot' and 'crap spot' of the week, e.g. "Miley Cyrus sticking a bindi on in Starbucks" or "George Michael walking quickly past Snappy Snaps". I think it would be cool if there was something similar on ONTD -- but frankly I'm too lazy to co-ordinate such a thing.

Still, I thought a one-off celebrity spots post would be fun. I suspect a lot of ONTDers live in cities where there are a few celebrities rumbling about and there must be some amusing sightings...

I'll get the ball rolling with my recent sightings. Post your own in the comments!
Note: this is not for 'I met so and so' stories, it's for the times when you see celebrities going about their days and watch them sneakily from afar.

My recent spots:

Nov 9th, London:
Simon Amstell having dinner with another young man at Manna vegetarian restaurant in Primrose Hill. They were both dressed like hipsters in big glasses. Simon had a big red wooly jumper on. He drank mint tea but ordered red wine for his companion.

Nov 1st, London:
Graham Norton on Wardour Street, Soho. He was hurrying along in a red plaid shirt, carrying a cup of coffee and looking distinctly grumpy.

August sometime, London:
Jim Broadbent in Regent's Park. He was wandering around the avenue gardens taking photographs of the plants and looking very serene.

Whom have you seen and where, ONTD?

Author's note: I also just want to say that I'm going to the Deathly Hallows premiere tomorrow night after winning a competition for tickets. Could not be more EXCITED!!!!!!

Phoenix’s Thomas Mars on Why His French Band Is So Hot in America

French rock band Phoenix, currently in the midst of a world tour playing the biggest stages of their career, have won a Grammy (for their 2009 smash Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix), scored a No. 1 single (“1901”), and played Saturday Night Live. How did four stylish, witty Europeans become one of the biggest bands in America, the favorite group of every Structure-clad dude and his cheerleader girlfriend in America? According to Phoenix front man Thomas Mars, it has something to do with his wife Sofia Coppola’s disdain for the Beatles, the French yé-yé movement, and growing up in a museum town that rejected all things modern.

You guys have talked about growing up in Versailles and how the fantasy of that place makes you want to be super modern by contrast. Can you expand on that?
I lived in a museum. The frustration we had was that everything great happened in the past, and they wouldn't give the chance for anything new to happen. There were like two shows happening there when we were kids. One was Pink Floyd, which wasn't really exciting but it was exciting because something was happening. And one was Tina Turner.

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is the best album of 2009


It’s age vs. youth for next week’s chart, as a debuting Susan Boyle will battle it out against Taylor Swift for #1 on next week’s HITS Album sales chart.

The duel is a repeat of last year, when Swift’s Fearless and Boyle’s I Dreamed a Dream went to the wire as 2009’s top-selling album, with the country princess barely edging the hard-charging Britain’s Got Talent star at the finish line.

Look for Boyle’s sophomore Columbia album, The Gift, to keep on giving for the holidays, after debuting this week with 240-260k, which would put her neck-and-neck for the top spot alongside the third week for Swift’s Speak Now. Which is good news for Lou Reed, whose “Perfect Day” is the first single from the Scottish singer’s release.

Swift’s album should benefit from tonight’s CMA awards, while the Boyle album is a certain stocking-stuffer as we head into the teeth of the gifting season.

Universal Motown rap superstar Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager bows with a number between 180-220k, a lock for the #3 position.

Capitol/EMI’s debuting Now 36 is up next, with a total of 80-85k, while Island/IDJ’s Bon Jovi will score 70-75k with their Greatest Hits—The Ultimate Collection package.

Valory/Big Machine veteran country star Reba McEntire is counting on All the Women I Am to buy between 60-65k of her new release.

Gnarls Barkley and former Goodie Mob moonlighting soul crooner Cee-Lo Green’s New Elektra album, The Lady Killer, rides the viral smash, “Fuck You,” to between 30-35k, followed by ABR/EMI’s Alter Bridge (24-27k) and Get Money Gang/EMI’s Twista (19-22k).

How Much Better Is Rachel McAdams Than Morning Glory?

Today, the romantic workplace comedy Morning Glory, a Broadcast News–light starring Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford, arrives in theaters. McAdams plays the dedicated producer of a flailing morning news show who brings on Harrison Ford's grumpy, legendary anchorman to goose the ratings. (Thankfully for your gag reflex, McAdams and Ford, 36 years apart, are not romantically involved.) The movie, written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) and directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill) is exactly the sort of rom-com trifle that would get savaged by critics if it were starring Katherine Heigl. Lucky for the movie, then, that it stars McAdams, who is getting the best reviews for appearing in a middling film (currently with a 45 percent on Rotten Tomatoes!) than anyone has since Anna Farris appeared in The House Bunny.

Read the tale of a good actress trapped in a mediocre movie that is probably going to make her a big star anyway.

Misfits Post! a way i guess.

Misfits star Robert Sheehan has revealed that he's been proposed to by a fan.
The actor, who plays agent provocateur Nathan in the E4 series, joked that he's accepted the proposal.

He said: "I had one woman email my agent and tell her that she thinks we should be life partners and we should get married and stuff. And I said yes, so now we're married and we're living happily, I mean she has a lot of cats, and I take a lot of antihistamines because I'm allergic but apart from that, yeah, it's all good."

His co-star Lauren Socha, who plays Kelly in the comedy drama about Asbo teens with superpowers, added that she'd heard of people dressing up as their characters for Halloween.

"Apparently there were five people who got on the Tube on Halloween as Misfits," she said.

"Down to geeky Simon's desert boots, that's a testament to its popularity," Robert added.

The gritty series, which counts Jonathan Ross among its celebrity fans, returns for a second series on Thursday on E4.

CBS Continues To Be Unimaginative

In one of the highest-profile reboots this season, CBS is looking to revive the 1960s action-adventure Western The Wild Wild West with former CSI executive producer/co-showrunner Naren Shankar and Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore
. The network is negotiating a deal for the project, which will be co-produced by CBS TV Studios, where Shankar is based with an overall deal, and Sony Pictures TV, where Moore is under an overall deal. The project originated at CBS TV Studios, which has the rights to the original series that ran on CBS from 1965-1969.

Praise for Ginger Goddess: Positive Reviews for Heavy in Your Arms

To say
Florence and the Machine has had a great year would be an understatement. With broken records and multi-award wins, Florence is ready to release their second album next year. To keep fans at bay, their new single Heavy in Your Arms, was originally made for the new Twilight: Eclipse movie, but it is obvious that this track was too good to be hidden away on a soundtrack album.

Haunting and sombre, this is probably one of the darker offerings from the band. Starting off very unusually with gentle synths, the track builds as the song progresses. The melancholic tone of the song fits perfectly with Florence's vocals, of which reach monumental heights at the song's climax. Ironically, as Florence chants 'heavy' in the chorus, the melody itself drudges along with weight, with a very heavy drum bass in tow. This song may have been perfect for Twilight with its gothic and haunting elements, but if any experience is to go by, this track will also be a huge success across the airways and within the concert arenas.

Whilst this may be a more unconventional and darker tone for the band (not so much in comparison to their first LP but relative to previous singles released), this is sure to be another notch on the bedpost for them. With lingering vocals and an eerie melody, this track goes beyond the supernatural to create something purely magical. Halloween may have just passed us by, but prepare to get goosebumps by this one.

Garrett Hedlund talks 'On The Road' adaptation

We can't wait to see Garrett Hedlund flinging 3D neon frisbees around in Tron Legacy. But we're not shallow, we like him for his brains too.

So we sat down to talk On The Road, the long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac's hipster classic stream of consciousness fauxbiography.

And it appears to be a project Hedlund's passionate about.

He told Total Film: "On The Road is extremely special to me, because when I first read it at 16 0r 17, I looked it up online and it said Francis Ford Coppola was producing it or directing it.

I said 'Great, I'll never get a chance at this.' Now I'm playing Dean Moriarty and I couldn't be happier.

"I had been attached to it since September 2007. And I think, man, if I hadn't been able to do it, a part of me would definitely drowned a little bit."

Tucker Carlson is still a prick

Tucker Carlson Sent Emails Posing As Keith Olbermann

Conservative pundit and Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson perpetrated a hoax last weekend by posing as Keith Olbermann in a series of emails to a Philadelphia columnist.

On Tuesday afternoon, a set of emails surfaced on the Philadelphia news site Phawker. Phawker said that the emails showed the "100% for real" correspondence between Olbermann and Philadelphia Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky over the weekend. In the emails, "Olbermann" talks about his boss, MSNBC President Phil Griffin, in hyperbolic, insulting terms.

In one email, "Olbermann" says that Griffin is "not my boss (thank god), nor is he intellectually qualified to be...I'll be anchoring on election night 2012, long after Phil Griffin has moved on to a job for which he's actually qualified, perhaps on QVC."

In another, "Olbermann" writes that "I could have Phil Griffin fired tomorrow if I felt like it, trust me. And if he keeps yapping about me in public, I may. For the moment, however, keeping Phil around is like having a drunk chimp in the office -- more amusing than threatening."

The incendiary emails seemed too good to be true -- and they were. They were sent from That's an address that is not owned by Olbermann, but by Carlson. In July, Carlson announced that he had purchased the domain name, and told Politico that people could email him at -- the same address that the emails to Bykofsky came from.

On Tuesday night, Yahoo's Michael Calderone reached Carlson by phone. Carlson confirmed that he had, in fact, sent the emails posing as Olbermann.

"Could you resist?" Carlson said. "It was just too funny. The flesh is weak."

Amazon defends 'Pedophile's Guide'


Amazon is selling a self-published book defending pedophiles, sparking discussions about the retailer's obligation to vet items before they are sold in its online stores, and threats of boycott from Amazon customers if the book is not removed.

The book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct" by Philip R. Greaves II, offers advice to pedophiles afraid of becoming the center of retaliation. It is an electronic book available for Inc.'s Kindle e-reader.

The author's description (misspellings included) reads:

"This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught."

5 Worst Rock-Star Fashion Statements

No Fashion Fads Were Worse Than These

There is no greater bastion of unintentional comedy than checking out your high school yearbook. Maybe it's the cool kids with their parachute pants and MC Hammer-style, zipper-laden shirts, or the rockers with their bell bottoms and Led Zeppelin muscle shirts, or even the preps with their turned-up collars and Duran Duran head bands.

Or -- gasp -- maybe it's even you with the Stray Cats sideburns and the comb sticking out of your back pocket.

And where did most of the "cool kids" gain their fashion sense? Rock stars.

Rock star fashion fads come and (thankfully) go, but they've all got a few things in common: They're popular, rock star acolytes think they're cool and, in retrospect, they look really, really stupid.

Can you tell me a little bit about what you're working on for HBO?
It's about a group of women in New York in their mid-twenties, in those years after college when you're not really sure what you're going to do, and you make an enormous amount of mistakes.
We're shooting a pilot this week. [It co-stars Dunham, Jemima Kirke — who's also in Tiny Furniture—and Allison Williams, daughter of Brian.]

What was it about [Dunham's movie] that made you sure that you wanted to try out a TV project with someone so young?
I saw the movie and I didn't know anything about it. I didn't know that the director and the writer was in it, I didn't know that that was her real family, I just saw it cold, someone just slipped me a DVD. I watched it and thought that it was hilarious and really smart and funny and emotional and human the way I like my movies and my stories. I just emailed her and said I thought it was great, and we started talking, and this opportunity came up.

You've gotten some flak from critics about your female characters. Does this play into that at all, working with a woman who starred in and wrote her own movie?
Not really. I mean, I feel like we've had some amazing female characters and performances in all the movies.

Rihanna 'Loved' Working With Kanye West On 'All Of The Lights'

For months now, Kanye West has been giving fans a taste of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy through his G.O.O.D. Friday initiative, but for Rihanna, he rolled out his entire album — a move that had just as much to do with their friendship as it did with convincing her to jump on a track.

"[Kanye] actually played his album to me, like, three months ago, and 'All of the Lights,' that was one of my favorite songs," Rihanna told MTV News at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday. "So when he asked me to come up to the studio at 2 o'clock in the morning, I had to, because I loved it, I knew it was that song."

Rihanna, of course, lent her vocals to the hook of West's massive posse cut "All of the Lights" which also features contributions from (deep breath) Alicia Keys, John Legend, The-Dream, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Elton John, Ryan Leslie, Charlie Wilson, Tony Williams and La Roux's Elly Jackson.

"James Bond 23" to Hit Theaters in November 2012

MGM has filed for bankruptcy in order to extinguish about $4 billion of debt and to place itself under the direction of Spyglass Entertainment. The plan is still to spend as much as $125 million on operations in the next 15 weeks.

$40 million of that will go toward "The Hobbit," while the "James Bond" franchise will also be funded. The plan is to release a new Bond installment every second year starting in November of 2012.

This means that "Bond 23" will hit theaters in two years. MGM will find a third party to help pay for production costs, and then own 100% of future installments. Stay tuned.

But then I realize that nothing about Ke$ha makes much sense these days because somehow, in spite of her countless doubters and detractors, she has managed to become an actual pop star. Not just the kind who sells lots of albums but, like Lady Gaga and Madonna, the kind that wields tremendous influence and even manages to use some of her power for good.

Yet another reason why NBC sucks.

Google 'Watch Conan' ... to get to Jay Leno's website

Although Conan O’Brien and his new TBS show Conan is winning the ratings war so far, he’s getting killed in the search engine optimization war.

If you search “Watch Conan” on Google, the website for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show is the first result. See for yourself.

This could be a simple mistake, right? Maybe the web team just changed the name on the header of the website when the two hosts swapped places. But we here at PopWatch like conspiracy theories. After all, the search term “Conan Obrien” returns Leno’s site as the third result, and the search term “Conan O’Brien” returns it as the sixth. Is NBC holding onto O’Brien’s web traffic and characters?

AFI Fest Review: The Fighter

There’s no real sane or logical reason why anyone would want to become a boxer. After all, with the exception of the Jackass crew, how many people do you know that would be willing to get punched in the face for a career. People who box have completely different mindsets than most of us. They have what most psychiatrists would call an unhealthy need to win and succeed (not to mention probably a little hint of masochism). Pugilists are true characters and it’s because of that fact that the greatest boxing movies aren’t about boxing at all. Matches are plot devices and metaphors that help inform the story and build the protagonist outside of the ring. This concept isn’t lost on director David O. Russell in his film The Fighter.

Cee-Lo sings 'Fuck you' as 'Fox News'

Cee-Lo Green was forced to revise his popular 'F**k You' single when he appeared on 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM). "As this is a family show, we can't be dropping the F-bomb here," explained Stephen Colbert (who then used the word seconds later). He suggested "something positive" to replace the phrase. How about "Fox News"?

Green humored Colbert with his revamped edition, singing, "Saw you driving 'round town with the girl I love on Fox News / Didn't see one politician that wasn't corrupt on the Fox News, and I got the blues"


Danzig pulls a dick move on fans, remains irrelevant while doing so.

Danzig pulls out of Cabooze show at last minute

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last night Danzig, sourpuss extraordinaire, was scheduled to appear at the Cabooze in support of his new record, Deth Red Sabaoth, that no one's heard of. Looks like it will probably stay that way, at least around the Twin Cities.

The Cabooze is an appropriately dingy, dark, alcohol-soaked venue for the once and future king of pop-goth to appear. Unfortunately for the fans, the venue, and the merch table, Danzig had committed to canceling before doors had even opened. We spoke with Michelle Metz at the Cabooze to get the story.
