Renee Zellweger ... what, what, what are you doing ?

And yet on Renee, it is SO tight that I half expect her to be arrested for public nudity because it's just body paint. It makes sense to me that she's at CNN's event for modern-day heroes, because she deserves some kind of medal for squeezing into that thing without ripping it, removing any of her ribs, and/or compressing her lungs to the size of raisins. Also, bonus points for growing out that atrocious Depression-Era Urchin coif, but can somebody please put a bunch of extra rice in her next sushi roll?
Thanks.

Favorite Musician Of All Time: 28 Stars Sound Off



As 2010 starts to wind down and thoughts turn to what has been the best music of the year, we've set our sights on even bigger things and asked over two dozen stars from every genre -- from B.o.B. and Paramore to Sheryl Crow, Trey Songz, Drake, Maroon 5 and Blake Shelton -- who is their favorite musician of all time.

The King of Pop topped the lists of several stars, as did Alicia Keys and Reba McEntire. Erykah Badu and Lloyd Banks both name-checked one of the greats of '90s hip-hop, while Quincy Jones and Chrisette Michele went with the classic stylings of a jazz singer from way back. The Jonas Brothers named rock icons, but so did Big Boi. One country star even has a tattoo of his idol. Who were these artists favorites? Watch the video to hear from them all.

Two flawless humans talk about a movie starring that other person



Two talents, both incredible in two very different but important ways. One thing is undeniable about Cher, she is one fierce woman to sit down with, but she’s also incredibly and surprisingly friendly. No matter how many times people attack her, she just keeps coming back fighting with a few good jokes to boot. This week, Burlesque hits theaters with all the songs and dance that you could possibly want, but it has a couple of things you don’t see in every musical, an icon and one of the best actors working today to raise the bar of the entire film, Stanley Tucci.

Find out what the powerful couple had to say about working in the business, being attacked by fans and making “Gay-Fantasia”…

Oliver Jackson-Cohen attended the premiere of his new film, "Faster," at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles last night. In "Faster," also starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thorton, Jackson-Cohen plays a bi-polar hitman simply known as "Killer." The 24 year-old English actor, who made his American film debut earlier this year in the Drew Barrymore-Justin Long romantic comedy "Going the Distance," will next be seen on the big screen alongside Anna Faris and Chris Evans in "What's Your Number?" and opposite John Cusack in "The Raven."

John Travolta and Kelly Preston's Baby Boy Arrives

John Travolta and Kelly Preston are understandably "ecstatic."

The couple welcomed their third child together, a son named Benjamin (just like they promised!), Tuesday night at a Florida hospital, E! News confirms.

"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," Travolta's rep said in a statement. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."

The Travolta family joyously announced Kelly's pregnancy in May, 17 months after losing 16-year-old son Jett.

Baby Ben was born weighing 8 pounds, 3 ounces. No word yet on whether he inherited his dad's famous dimples, but surely a magazine cover will reveal all soon.

Kanye Speaks On First Week Sales, Bush, Taylor, and More

Last night, troubled producer/rapper Kanye West gave a last-minute secret concert at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC to promote his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kanye boasted about his comeback and his 1st week record sales (expected to be around 500K).

“It was a show performed by a real asshole…” writes the NY Times, “a guy who was convinced that no matter how much you loved him, you could still love him more.”

Of the latter, he said, “…Taylor never came to my defense in any interview” I guess it didn’t occur to Kanye that his victims aren’t required to come to his defense?

First Images for "Water for Elephants"

Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz have all been revealed in their period finery in a new shot from movie Water For Elephants.



Coming courtesy of Algonquin Books, the latest run of Sara Gruen’s novel features a new sleeve with snaps from the movie – which has given us our first sneaky glimpse at the stars of the film adaptation.

Most impressive is "R-Pattz’s" tamed mane, with not a hint of the Edward Cullens about him. Of course, Witherspoon’s going for gold with that wavy crop (there's definitely some Marilyn Monroe mixed in there), while Waltz is happy to sit and simmer with Oscar-winning gravitas.

Water For Elephants follows Pattison veterinary student, who looks after the animals of a traveling circus during the Great Depression. There, he meets Marlena (Witherspoon) and her twisted animated trainer husband August (Waltz).

I Am Legend helmer Francis Lawrence directs. The film opens on 22 April, 2011.

According to IMDB, the release date is set for April 15, 2011, but whatever. I loved this book, and I really hope it translates well on film. Any other fans of the book here?

Alan Menken talks 'Tangled' and his Disney masterpieces.

Alan Menken discusses 'Tangled' and the past, present, and future of the animated musical
By JEFF LABRECQUE

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Alan Menken has won more Oscars — eight! — than anybody else alive. And no wonder. When you think of the smash hits that revived Walt Disney Animation, starting with The Little Mermaid in 1989 and continuing with Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, it’s impossible to separate the movies from the music. “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” “Be Our Guest,” “Friend Like Me,” “A Whole New World” — they’re the stuff high school glee clubs are made of. Menken, with lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, gave us all of these ear confections, winning over audiences and the Academy in the process. But history can take unexpected turns, and the art form Menken once dominated, that of hand-drawn Broadway-style animated musicals, has all but vanished. Now, he’s prepped his next revolution: the first CG-animated film that’s also a full, break-into-song musical, Walt Disney Animation’s Tangled, opening today. EW talked to Menken about his unrivaled career, his work on Tangled, and why Disney has chosen not to market it as a musical.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In some ways, Tangled is a landmark film. It’s the first complete musical for a CG-animated film.
ALAN MENKEN: It’s the first to even attempt it. I knew that going in, but I always felt Pixar would attempt a “break into song” musical. The closest they came was with “When She Loved Me” in Toy Story 2, but that was still just montage material.

Was it more challenging to compose music for a CG-animated film as opposed to a hand-drawn film?
To compose, no. Do people respond to CGI, though, in the same way they respond to hand-drawn? In the case of Tangled, I think the name Disney on it makes all the difference. It gives permission to the fact that it is a musical. Having a tradition is a great thing to work within, and maybe today [it] is the only way to really land musically dramatic work. People have to already be comfortable with the form.

Hey, Cher Lloyd: Kate Moss wants you

Kate Moss is an inspiration to some of the biggest names in fashion, including Roberto Cavalli and Calvin Klein, but it seems she's found a muse all of her very own. The 36-year-old supermodel's fascinated with Cher Lloyd and is desperate to find a way to work with the teeny star.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
X Factor fan Kate's told friends she loves Cher's individuality, sound and attitude and thinks she has what it takes to make it in the music or fashion industry, whether she wins the show or not.

‘Cher reminds Kate of herself when she was younger,' reveals our source.

‘Cher's got a swagger like she knows everything but the fact is she's a kid and has a lot to learn. Kate's impressed by her vibe and says she has a great sense of style and personality.'

While Croydon-born Kate - who's good mates with Simon Cowell - doesn't have a specific idea in mind, she's looking out for a project she can work on with Cher, 17, in the future.

‘She's waiting until the show finishes but she's spoken to a few fashion experts about it and they've all agreed Cher could be one to watch in the industry in the next few years,' says our mole.

‘Kate thinks that if Cher plays her cards right she could have her choice of campaigns to front as well as a singing career.'

The Piano Man is bed-ridden!

Billy Joel underwent double hip surgery in a Long Island, New York, hospital last week to fix a congenital hip ailment, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

"He did them both at the same time," the rocker's ex-wife, Christie Brinkley, told RadarOnline.com and Shape.com in a joint, exclusive interview.

"Billy said 'If I do it one at a time I know I'll never go in for the other."

The voice behind Uptown Girl and We Didn't Start The Fire recently admitted he wanted to get back on stage and start touring again after taking time off to rest his hip.

His supermodel ex, who was married to Joel for nine years and has a daughter named Alexa Ray with him, said he's recovering nicely.

"He's really doing well. He's really coming through with flying colors," Brinkley said.

She praised his recovery and said "he's making it look easy!"

Leo in yet ANOTHER emergency plane landing, donates $1mil to tigers, and is loved by Vlad Putin


Prime Minister Vladimir Putin likes to play the hero in his native Russia - whether it's fighting wildfires or taking part in macho outdoor pursuits - but even he can be impressed by another man's heroism, especially when that man is the baby-faced Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
 

RIA Novosti reports that Putin has honoured DiCaprio as a "muzhik" - or "real man" - for insisting on attending a tiger conservation summit in St Petersburg, even after his plane was involved in a free-fall incident over the United States.

En route from New York, an engine caught fire and the aircraft was forced to return to JFK airport, Putin told delegates at at the International Tiger Conservation Forum yesterday.

"We need to praise the American pilots who showed bravery, calm and professionalism by turning on the fire extinguishers and shutting down the engines, putting the plane into a free-fall," said Putin.

"I don't think anyone would want to continue their trip, but Mr DiCaprio isn't one of them."

Putin continued his story, telling the audience that DiCaprio's troubles didn't end there. His plane was again forced to land in Helsinki after using up its fuel because of strong headwinds over the North Atlantic.

At this, the audience laughed. "That's not funny," said Putin.
"DiCaprio didn't just come, he busted into St. Petersburg across the front line. That's what we call a real man."


Russia is key to a plan agreed by the International Tiger Conservation Forum to double by 2022 the population of the endangered big cat, which has fallen to less than 3,500 from 100,000 a century ago.

Putin,has promised new measures to tackle poaching and habitat destruction. His hero, DiCaprio, has donated $1m to the global effort to protect tigers, which will require around $350m from the international community.

Foxy Brown Calls Nicki Minaj A Liar!

Last week, Nicki Minaj sat down with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 to get personal for her fans. And she dished about how the drama began with her and Kimmy. Nicki mentioned that a few people, including Foxy Brown, pulled her to the side and told her that Kim had been talking ish about her. So Nicki felt betrayed and let down and confused by it all because she had "shown Kim respect" and told Kim she had mad love for her already.

Kelly Osbourne: Weight Lost, Confidence Gained

As the daughter of Sharon and Ozzy, and one of the stars of the iconic reality show The Osbournes, Kelly Osbourne has been taunted and criticized in the tabloids, not so much for her wild-child ways—or even her drug addiction—but for her weight. "I was called fat and ugly in the press almost my entire life," says the 26-year-old. "I understand that being judged by others comes with the territory, but it broke my heart and ruined my self-esteem. It sets you up to hate yourself in a huge way. I was so angry about the things people said about me. I truly believe it's the main reason I turned to Vicodin and ended up in rehab three times. I just hated myself."

To 3D Or Not To 3D - Tangled Edition.



It's a given at this point that nearly every animated movie will be released in 3D, both because the animation studios jumped on the bandwagon earlier than nearly everybody else and because animated films simply tend to work better in the third dimension. Whatever the problem is about converting human faces into 3D isn't a factor in animation, which takes the opportunity to pop off the flat screen with bright colors, gimmicky tricks and rubbery faces that look particularly good even when you've got the glasses on.

And though Disney had done well releasing their Pixar films in 3D, Tangled marks the first time they're bringing one of their venerable fairy tale adaptations into the third dimension. Tangled is CGI animated like Pixar movies or Disney's recent Bolt, but it also deliberately mimics the flat effect of the old-school, hand-drawn films, combining the new technology with a more traditional film in a way that really, really works. I loved Tangled when I saw it in 2D in unfinished form, and I loved it again when I was the finished film projected in glorious 3D. But which was better? And when you actually have to pay the few extra bucks to see it in 3D, is it worth the investment? I am here to help, with our latest installment of the To 3D or Not To 3D series: Tangled edition.

I thought this was worth posting because most people ask what the difference is between seeing animation in 2D versus 3D. The lantern scene sounds amazing though. Can't wait to see this!

POP ICON RIHANNA CONTINUES TO BREAK RECORDS.

 


Two weeks after topping the Billboard Hot 100 with "What's My Name?" (featuring Drake), Rihanna will return to No. 1 on the chart released Thursday (Nov. 25) with "Only Girl (In the World)," the debut single from her new album, "Loud."
 
 It's the first time in Hot 100 history that an album's debut single reaches No. 1 after the second single does. "What's My Name" dips 7-8 on the Hot 100, though it does take the Airplay Gainer for a fourth straight week. "Loud, meanwhile, debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

 "Only Girl" is Rihanna's fourth single to ascend to No. 1 in 2010, making her the first female, and first artist overall since Usher in 2004, to hit the top that many times in a single calendar year. Rihanna also moves to the forefront for most No. 1s in the millennium (since 2000), as "Only Girl" is her ninth track to lead the list. She had been tied with Usher for the past two weeks, with eight chart-toppers since 2000.

When kooky Katy Perry, 26, and randy Russell Brand, 35, got married in India, everything was perfect - except the maid of honour was missing.

Though she partied with Katy in Las Vegas before the ceremony, Rihanna missed her Big Day.

'I was upset she couldn't make it but let me promise you, there was no one more upset about it than her,' Katy tells Now.

'When you have an album coming out you don't have a spare second in the day and you're answerable to the record company.'

“I have a phobia about being in the wrong relationship.

“So as soon as I establish it’s not the right one, I don’t want to waste their time.

“Relationships are fascinating and riveting and completely unpredictable. For me, love is everything.”

“I used to think there were all these rules for making people like you,”
Swift adds.

“I was filled with advice! I’d tell my friends things like, ‘Don’t accept that apology! That isn’t sincere!’ or ‘He hung out with his ex-girlfriend? Get rid of him.’ But love is never that simple.”

Introducing: Tove Styrke



I cannot thank Sweden enough for bringing Tove Styrke into the music world.  The second runner up in Swedish Idol 2009, 18 year old rising star Tove recently released her debut self titled album.  Her first single Million Pieces didn't top the charts as hoped by Sony Music however, her second single White Light Moment is sure to gain her some attention.  The 80's-dance-infused track will have you bouncing off the walls, so try to contain yourself if you're still at work.  Of course the States are being deprived of such great music once again so our only source to get her album is via Amazon or Legalsounds.  Hopefully she'll take off and we'll see a release in the States early next year.  Take a listen below of her live performance of White Light Moment at this season's Sweden Idol and a teaser of Chaos.

Mark Ruffalo Is Worse Than Osama Bin Laden!!!



Pittsburgh - The star of the films "Collateral" and "Zodiac," Mark Ruffalo has found himself on the terror alert watch list after he attempted to arrange several screenings for the upcoming documentary "GasLand." It was a surprise to find out earlier this year that 8-year-old Mickey Hicks was placed on the United States terror watch list. Reports now reveal that the soon-to-be “Hulk” actor, Mark Ruffalo, was placed on the alert list. According to the Toronto Sun, Ruffalo has been travelling across the U.S. in order to arrange screenings for an upcoming documentary titled “GasLand” that highlights natural gas drilling. Although, natural gas could make the U.S. energy independent, the film notes the dangers to the air and drinking water. Ruffalo’s attempt to raise awareness to this issue has caught the attention of officials from Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security, which then put Ruffalo on the watch list. For now, Ruffalo will be closely watched and will have a difficult time travelling anywhere. In an interview with GQ Magazine, the star of “Shutter Island” said: “It’s pretty f*cking funny,” reports Comic Book Movies.

Britney wants sole custody of her kids!

Britney Spears wants to apply for sole custody of her sons Sean Preston, five, and four-year-old Jayden James.

Britney Spears wants to care for her children full-time.

The 28-year-old singer - who has been under the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears since her much-publicised breakdown in January 2008 - has reportedly told ex-husband Kevin Federline she wants to get back custody of her sons, Sean Preston, five, and four-year-old Jayden James, and have the boys live with her and current partner Jason Trawick.

Kevin still officially has sole custody of the boys, although the youngsters split their time between both parents.
A source said: "It's getting harder and harder for her to hand the boys back to Kevin after each visit. Britney dreams of marrying Jason and having the kids live with them - she'd even like to have more children too.

"She won't be happy until the boys are with her full-time. All she wants is to get her life back, without having to ask her dad's permission to do everything."

However, Kevin has told his ex-wife - who sees the boys every week - he wants to keep custody of their sons, who live with him and his girlfriend Victoria Prince in Los Angeles. The source added: "Britney and Kevin's relationship is amicable - Kevin likes Jason and knows he's a stable influence on Britney. He's told her she can visit them every day but there's no way he's handing them over full time."

Under the terms of their current custody agreement, Britney pays Kevin $15,000 a month to look after the kids and promised to continue giving him the sum even if he gives the children back, an offer the former dancer refused.

The insider told Closer magazine: "At first, Britney thought it was because he was afraid of losing the money, so she offered him an out-of-court settlement, meaning he'd get the money regardless of who the boys live with.
"But he's told her he fears she's still too unstable and could go off the rails again."

The pop star's conservatorship order could come to an end within the next few months following a meeting she had with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz in October to assess her general wellbeing in regards to making a decision on handing back control of her affairs

The 'Cute' Beatle Falls


Former Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney has seen and done it all when it comes to performing in sell-out arenas across the globe.

Yet even a consummate professional such as himself is prone to the odd mishap. After receiving a lengthy standing ovation from his 67 000 adoring fans at the Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo on Sunday night, McCartney managed an unfortunate exit.

At 68-years-old, McCartney showed that there's still a spring in his step as he jogged off stage. Unfortunately, he ended up tripping on some cables and falling face first to the floor. One audience member managed to capture the moment in the video shown here, but plenty of fans in the arena witnessed the incident too, and gasped in horror.

It was a painful looking fall, but McCartney bounced back to his feet quickly and left the stage.

This is McCartney's first Brazilian gig for 18 years, and he has spent his tour largely cooped up in his hotel room due the volume of fans camped outside.

"I love South American audiences," said McCartney.

"I always think I have Latin blood because I connect so strongly with their love of music and their love of rhythm and their love of melody, so I always feel like I have a very big bond with South American people and Latin people in general."

Ouch!

 

 


Willow Palin Is Still Allowed Near A Computer



Willow Palin has a bone to pick with the "lamestream media."'

A week after big sister Bristol Palin apologized for Willow's use of a gay slur in a posting on Facebook, the 16-year-old is sounding off on her own.

In an exclusive statement to E! News, the younger Palin touches on the Facebook haters, scandalous allegations in Life & Style and, of course, Bristol's surprise run to the Dancing With the Stars finale.

"Today I am focusing on a special event—Bristol and [partner] Mark [Ballas]'s appearance in the Dancing With the Stars finals. Nothing said today will take away how proud we are of Bristol and her grit and determination that got her this far," says Willow before turning her attention to the "ridiculous" reports, including the Life & Style story in which a former classmate dishes about her supposed partying habits.

"It is disappointing to see people who claim they know me to sell stories. As for people accusing me of being at a party over a year ago, the accusations are ridiculous. The same people saying this were also the ones attacking my family on Facebook. Unfortunately some people have learned that there are publications that will pay money for stories, no matter how misleading.

"Nevertheless, I recognize that my family has been given a great honor and privilege to make a difference in this country, and even though I am just 16, more is expected of me," she continues. "That being said, I say this to Bristol and Mark (with a hat tip to Lady Gaga)—Just Dance!"

Lauryn Hill likes Nicki Minaj

Lauryn Hill officially returned to the stage after ditching the music industry for motherhood for much of the past decade. In Janurary, L-Boogs set out on the reggae themed Raggmuffin tour, which hit spot dates across Australia and various cities in Europe. Instantly, fans and media began conjuring up Lauryn Hill comeback album talk.

Then she joined this summer's throwback-themed Rock The Bells tour, with a brand-new band backing her highly criticized live show, which features almost entirely reincarnated mixes from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill era. Looking for insight on her music reemergence, VIBE tracked down Lauryn’s current tour jockey DJ Rampage, who spoke on how they got acquainted, preparing for the tour, the chances of Lauryn releasing new music, oh—and her approval of Nicki Minaj.

At any time, Did Ms. Hill express interest in any artists or wanting to collaborate with anyone?

There are moments when we’re taking a break from practicing and just talking about things, and I remember this one time she mentioned hearing Nicki on the radio. I believe the track was “Roger That,” and she started reciting some of Nicki’s lyrics and her adlibs. It was obivous to me she was feeling her stuff.

Is Tom Hardy the next Christian Bale?

by Darren Franich Categories: Christian Bale

Rumors circulated today that Inception‘s Tom Hardy is in talks to take a pivotal role in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. According to Moviefone, Hardy would play Sturges, a vampire mentor to young Abraham Lincoln. (Fox is producing AL: VH and would not comment on Hardy’s involvement in the film.) Combined with his mysterious lead role in Batman 3

Hardy is just a couple of years away from pop culture ubiquity. In fact, if you look at his career track closely, you find a striking array of similarities to his Dark Knight Rises co-star, Christian Bale.

SPOTTED: Blake Lively Buying 40 Pairs of Christian Louboutins!



It looks like Gossip Girl‘s favorite fashionista has a real-life shoe fetish! Footwear News spotted Blake Lively scooping up more than 40 pairs of the designer shoes at the invite-only Christian Louboutin sample sale in N.Y.C. last week. And while we’re not mathematicians, with flats starting at $150 and heels at $225–and factoring in Lively’s propensity for dangerously high footwear–we’re estimating a final tally of upwards of $9K. “I have sisters, so I’m getting gifts for them and for friends,” the star explained before confessing, “Of course, I got quite a few for myself, too.”

MTV Exclusive: Sky Ferreira



Sky Ferreira, an 18-year-old rising electro-pop star and Twitter frenemy of Katy Perry, stopped by the MTV studios recently to dish about her personal style. "Fashion is a very big thing in everyone's life," she told us. "I wouldn't say it defines you, but it helps express yourself." Even though the budding singer/songwriter hasn't officially released her debut album yet (it comes out early next year), she already made an impression in the fashion world by gracing the cover of Jalouse magazine in June, and it's rumored that Sky will star in Diesel's spring 2011 campaign. And she's proud of her style, despite some people nay-saying her unique look. "Of course, people criticize my style," she told us. "They'll be like, 'She looks skanky, she looks like she doesn't shower.' Or, 'Why is she wearing a giant flannel and ripped jeans on national TV?' It really depends." Find out more about Sky's favorite fashion trends (and faux pas!) in the clip below.

Colin Farrell has Excellent Taste

Farrell Ready To Work With Knightley Again

COLIN FARRELL is desperate to land another project with KEIRA KNIGHTLEY after their turn in LONDON BOULEVARD - insisting it was easy to work with her because she is so "gorgeous and lovely".

The Irish actor plays an ex-convict who falls in love with Knightley's reclusive actress character in the upcoming crime movie.

Farrell admits he is in awe of the Pirates of the Caribbean actress - and he's determined to appear onscreen with her again.

He tells Britain's Live From Studio Five, "She is gorgeous. She's really gorgeous and lovely - a lovely woman and incredibly smart and bright and talented and creative and generous. She was lovely, I mean she really was, so it was easy working with her. (say "gorgeous" and "lovely" again, Colin)

"I was a really big fan of her work beforehand and even more of a fan of her work afterwards. I wish I got to work more with her, I really did. I felt like it was kind of just a rehearsal for maybe some other thing that maybe I'd be lucky enough to get the chance to do with her at some stage."

Animal Rights Activists Send 'Bloody AIDS-Tainted' Razor Blades to UCLA Researcher

Photobucket David Jentsch

UCLA neuroscientist David Jentsch, who conducts research on rodents and primates, received a gruesome package earlier this month: "Bloody, AIDS-tainted razor blades," courtesy "the Justice Department."

That's "the Justice Department," the radical animal-rights group founded in the UK, not "the Justice Department," the Justice Department. And, yes, they most likely meant "HIV-tainted" razor blades, as AIDS is merely a syndrome resulting from the virus. But even so: Gross.

The unfriendly missive came to light today thanks to a press release from the Animal Liberation Front, another animal-rights group, which printed the message for Jentsch in full:

The Justice Department at UCLA sent bloody AIDS tainted razor blades to David Jentsch at [xxxxx] Valley Vista boulevard in the town of Sherman Oaks, California; instead he should be living in hell which is where he will eventually end up desirably sooner rather than later. He has no business addicting primates to phencyclidine known on the streets as PCP and other street drugs using grant money from the federal government. Confining primates to puny filthy cages then removing them to give them their fix of PCP when primates would not get addicted if it weren't for Frankenstein's like Jentsch. How would Jentsch like the same thing he does to primates to be done to him? That would be justice. STOP YOUR SICK EXPERIMENTS OR HELL AWAITS YOU. —UCLA JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

Eesh. According to the Los Angeles Times, the FBI and UCLA police are investigating the incident, as well as claims by the ALF that the Justice Department sent a similar package to one of Jentsch's researchers (apparently, there's no evidence that she ever received such a package). It's not the first time the scientist has faced violence in the face of his work, either—his car was blown up in March 2009.

And what kind of work, exactly, does Jentsch do? UCLA doesn't detail the specifics, but says it's "key information on biochemical processes that contribute to methamphetamine addiction affecting teens and disabilities affecting speech and behavior of schizophrenia patients." BoingBoing has more:

St. Angie Refuses to Celebrate Thanksgiving, Feels It's a 'Story of Murder'



While everyone is preparing to give thanks tomorrow, one of America's most famous families, the Jolie-Pitts, have decided to sit this Thanksgiving out.

"Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans," a friend of the actress tells me. "To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn't her style. She definitely doesn't want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder."

Angelina has been filming her directorial debut, about a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love during the Bosnian War. Angie, always extremely sensitive to the suffering throughout the world, is filming in English and the native languages.

"Angelina gets so grossed out by Thanksgiving that she has made sure her family will not be in America this year on Thursday," an insider tells me.

And although Brad Pitt recently told 'EXTRA,' "We'll whip up a turkey somewhere," he certainly hasn't shared that plan with Angelina. A family friend tells me, "If Brad wants turkey, he will have to cook it himself. For Angie, it will be another day when America tries to rewrite history."

Lighten up, dear!

Gillian McKeith pregnancy rumour perpetuates itself; Daily Mail's shit gladly hits the fan





Gillian McKeith has had her fair share of drama during her stint on I’m A Celebrity, but now the 51-year-old has claimed she’s pregnant.

Her bizarre claim comes after continuous erratic behaviour and is thought to be a bid to exit the jungle jail.

But a spokesperson for the reality TV show denied reports that Gillian has been ruled out of all future challenges due to health reasons.

However, the TV nutritionist, who suffers from scoliosis, has been exempt from the next challenge under health and safety rules.

The Scot managed to avoid last night’s Bushtucker Trial too, after being given another exemption, leaving Stacey Solomon and Aggro Santos to take on the challenge.

And her poor performance in Bushtucker Trials has only angered her campmates, leaving one of her few allies, Stacey, suggesting she should quit the show.

The former X Factor contestant breathed at told Gillian: ‘If you’re so afraid and have so many phobias and are ill over it, you should go. There’s nothing keeping you here. You said it’s unbearable.’

But McKeith is determined to stay despite her constant phobias wreaking havoc on her sanity.

The fairest Pink Friday review you will read

 

Over the past few years, Nicki Minaj has been one of the most exciting new voices in hip-hop. She's delivered a stream of song-stealing or song-saving guest verses, one dynamite mixtape (Beam Me Up Scotty) and another, as good, unofficial one (Barbie World), and generally displayed a swagger, unpredictability, and ferocity not heard from a female MC in years. Little of that, however, is on her long-awaited debut album, Pink Friday.

Minaj turned a lot of heads by coming out of the gate as a supremely confident, powerful MC in any one of the many guises she has chosen to inhabit. She's been most often bracketed with Lil' Kim, but those comparisons are more about image and sexuality than her music; at her best, Minaj on the mic is far closer to the free-spirited, without-a-net work of Missy Elliott. She displays a wide range of talents, stuffing her verses with complex internal rhymes, agile shifts in character and voice, and twisted, offbeat wordplay. Avoiding easy categorization on her mixtapes and guest verses, Minaj has played the coquette, the powerhouse, the lady, the diva, the rapper's rapper, the fembot, and the comedian. She's posed as Rihanna on the batshit awesome "Saxon", played the harajuku Barbie on "Beam Me Up Scotty", and shapeshifted into battle rapper mode on "Itty Bitty Piggy". And while she plays fast and loose with her past, her inclination to slip into a number of characters is the work of a creative former theater kid rather than a myth-making rapper.

There’s currently a conflict taking place between North and South Korea and Alicia Machado wanted to do her part and at least pray for that region and its people.

Well, she made a mistake…a pretty big one. According to Agencia Mexico, she wrote the following on Twitter:

“Tonight I want you to join me in a prayer, about the attacks happening between the Chinas, so that the situation doesn’t worsen.”

HA! The former Miss Universe was the target of many nasty comments and insults after posting that message and so she has deleted her Twitter account.

Truthfully, everyone makes mistakes – she should have just owned up to it and moved on. Weak.

Who? After her reign she accused the Miss Universe pageant of making her develope an eating disorder for forcing her to lose weight and work out in front of reporters who printed stories about her getting fat. She's also famous for having sex on Celebrity Big Brother in Spain and posing for Playboy. A mexican drug lord fathered her new baby this year according to gossip. Highly unlikeable celebrity in Latin America.

Here she is having sex on Celebrity Big Brother:

First she keeps telling the guy she has a boyrfriend who she LOVES. Skip to minute 1. Guy gives it to her for like 2 seconds and then stops and she keeps begging for more but he can't LOL.

Jessica Simpson's Engagement Ring Was Hidden in a Shoe

Jessica Simpson's fiancé went to great lengths to hide her three-stone ruby engagement ring.

"He had the ring in his shoe at my house somewhere," Jessica Simpson said on SIRIUS XM's The Morning Mash Up in an interview airing Dec. 2. "I was like: Why hide it in a shoe? But it worked. I had no idea."

Almost as surprising as Eric Johnson's Nov. 11 proposal was that Simpson's family didn't spill the beans.

"He had talked to my mom and dad and my sister three weeks before he asked me," she says. "I can't believe all the Simpsons kept a secret."

The singer was in the middle of watching Parenthood when Johnson, 31, asked her to pause the show so he could pop the question.

"He got down on his knee and I had to sit down on it because I was so shocked," said Simpson, 31. "I was … short of breath. It was definitely one of those moments where I've never felt that way before, ever."

Simpson, who has a new holiday album Happy Christmas coming out, is looking forward to getting back into the studio to make another pop record, but admits that "music is definitely my number two priority next to love."

Gradient colors pulse through the tubes at different speeds, the effect is a living, breathing dynamic skin that traverses the landscape of the body."

Kate Middleton's See-Thru Dress Could Be Worth $150,000

It cost a mere £30 ($50) to cobble together. But the see-through black slip credited with helping Kate Middleton catch the eye of a prince could one day be worth £100,000 ($150,000).

William was mesmerised by his fellow student as she sashayed down the catwalk in the outfit at a university fashion show eight years ago.

Designer Charlotte Todd, who admitted the dress has been languishing at the back of her wardrobe ever since, has been told its value has rocketed to £10,000 since the couple announced their engagement.

And according to one auction house, that could increase ten-fold when Kate becomes Queen.

Yesterday Miss Todd, 31, said there was little chance of her parting with it. ‘The dress is a part of fashion history – the moment William could first have fallen in love with Kate – and that makes me really proud,’ she said.

‘If it hadn’t been see-through, William might not have noticed her. I definitely think it has a played a part in the royal love story.
