More Award Nominations!

Satellite Awards Nominate 'Inception' (and Everything Else)



Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was the top nominee in the this year's Satellite Awards, which is given out annually by a group called the International Press Academy, which is made up of entertainment journalists and was founded in 1996 by a former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"Inception" received 11 nominations, while "127 Hours" received nine, "The Social Network" seven and "The King's Speech" six.

"Alice in Wonderland," "Black Swan," "The Kids Are All Right," "The Town" and "Unstoppable" each received five nominations.

What the International Press Academy lacks in credibility, they certainly make up for in verbosity. The press release announcing the nominations contained this explanation:

"As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, Hollywood with indomitable bravado rose to the occasion, delivering, in the final months, a prolific palette of critically acclaimed powerhouse contenders. In recognition of such an insurgence of exceptional performances, superior storytelling and impeccable filmmaking, the International Press Academy expanded the number of nominees within the major categories beyond the perennial five in order to give a befitting tribute to this unprecedented wealth of artistic excellence."

In other words, they've used the Oscars' move to 10 Best Picture nominees as an excuse to make sure that everything  gets nominated.  The Satellite Awards now have 10 Best Picture nominees, too, plus another seven nominees for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, seven for Foreign Language Film, six for Animated or Mixed Media, and 10 for Documentary.

And they don't stop at extra Best Picture nods – by expanding the roster in virtually all the movie categories, the IPA insures that almost every actor, actress, director or film even thought to be in contention has walked away with a nomination.

The awards luncheon – or, as the release has it, the "ceremonious occasion" – will take place on December 19 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City.

X FACTOR: REBECCA FIGHTS BACK.

 
 

Cheryl Cole was again accussed of favouritism over her X Factor protoge Cher Lloyd today, with newspaper claims that fellow Girl Rebecca Ferguson is upset ober the treatment she receives in comparison to Cher.

The Liverpool singer was seen crying uncontrollably after this past Sunday's live elimination show and being comforted by Katie Waissel.

Now today, a source tells The Daily Mail that the pressure is beginning to get to Rebecca.

"Rebecca was in absolute tears backstage, I’ve never seen a contestant so upset before.' the show source said.

"She really feels that Cher is getting preferential treatment over her and that this is going to ruin her chances of winning."

"Rebecca’s put everything into this competition and she’s finding it extremely stressful. It’s very hard for her to see Cher get so much attention from their mentor Cheryl. She thinks the show is being geared up for Cher."

"Rebecca was very close to Katie and now that she has gone, she only has Cher left, and she can be very hard and cold."

Teen Mom Is A Drug Addict

 



Teen Mom AMBER PORTWOOD is a full-blown drug addict - and her baby girl nearly choked to death while Amber was in a drug-induced stupor, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

While Amber's disastrous personal life has been chronicled on MTV's hit reality show, The ENQUIRER has uncovered the shocking full extent of the troubled 20-year-old's problems, which now threaten to harm her young daughter.

The self-described party girl with a violent temper is hooked on a virtual pharmacy of medication, including the painkillers morphine and hydrocodone, plus the anti-anxiety drug Klonopin and the amphetamines Adderall and Vyvanse, insiders say.

"Amber has become a full-blown drug addict. She abuses a laundry list of different drugs," divulged a close friend. "Her doctor prescribed Klonopin for her anger problems, and Tramadol for back pain. But she gets hydrocodone, morphine, Vyvanse and Adderall from drug dealers and pals. "She mixes the pills with vodka and tequila, and if she keeps it up, she's going to kill herself or someone else!"

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin talks about their Southern accents in True Blood

Anna Paquin has problems stopping her New Zealand accent "bubbling" to the surface.

The actress plays Sookie Stackhouse in American vampire show True Blood, which has been a huge hit across the globe. The role requires Anna to put on a US accent, and she has been praised for her believable speaking voice.

However, recently she has found traces of her true accent have been creeping into takes. The problem has got so bad Anna has stopped phoning her friends and family at home before she's due on set as she thinks chatting to them is part of the problem.

"It still comes up now and again. It's especially bad after I've been on the phone to my mum or my sister," she laughed. "But I have been away from home for such a long time on the whole I don't tend to have that accent. It's still there though - bubbling underneath."

Anna is married to her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, who is from the UK. He finds putting on a special voice for his role as vampire Bill Compton easy, and says visiting different areas in the US inspired him to make sure he gets it just right.

"It's never been a struggle," he has explained. "To be honest with you I've always felt very, very comfortable with it. I love the accent, I think it's a beautiful accent, it's really fun to do."

Apple Removes Anti-Gay App From App Store

Apple has removed an iPhone app considered anti-gay following a wave of protests sent through the online petition site Change.org.

Initially approved and available in the App Store in October, the Manhattan Declaration app was submitted by members of the Manhattan Declaration, a movement launched last year by a number of Christian leaders espousing their condemnation of both gay marriage and abortion rights.

In approving the app, Apple originally gave it a rating of 4+, meaning it had "no objectionable material."

But described by Change.org as an application that invites people to join anti-gay and anti-choice campaigns, the Manhattan Declaration app had offered a "survey" with four questions, including "Do you believe in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman?" and "Do you support the right of choice regarding abortion?" Users who responded contrary to the beliefs of the group received a message at the end informing them that they answered 0 out of 4 questions correct. The app also invited people to sign up to support and donate to the group's cause.

In reaction to the app, Change.org created an online petition directed toward Apple CEO Steve Jobs asking that the app be removed for its "hateful and divisive language." Following e-mails from more than 7,700 people sent through Change.org, Apple removed the app Thanksgiving weekend.

In response to the app's removal, an Apple spokeswoman e-mailed CNET the following statement:

"We removed the Manhattan Declaration app from the App Store because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people."

In its own response yesterday, the Manhattan Declaration said that it's perplexed over Apple's decision to remove the app, saying that "Apple pulled the app shortly after a small but very vocal protest by those who favor gay marriage and abortion."

Responding to charges that the Manhattan Declaration is homophobic and anti-gay, the group said it doesn't believe that "disagreement" is "gay-bashing" and insists that the language it uses "to defend traditional marriage and the sanctity of human life...is civil, non-inflammatory, and respectful." The group also said it has written to Steve Jobs urging him to restore the app.

UPDATES IN HOLLYWOOD PUBLICIST RONNI CHASEN MURDER INVESTIGATION

First Police Action In Ronni Chasen Murder Results In Another Death (IT'S NOT MORGAN FREEMAN, CALM DOWN)

[ADDITION TO MY ORIGINAL POST - LA TIMES ARTICLE - SEE BELOW]





BREAKING NEWS... 5TH UPDATE & WRITETHRU: "It's not over yet," said a detective tonight when asked if the investigation into popular Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen's slaying was concluded after tonight's suicide. At an impromptu cops' news conference, these details were confirmed: Beverly Hills Police at 5:30 PM went to serve a search warrant on a man at the Harvey Apartments in a seedy part of Los Angeles at 5640 Santa Monica Boulevard between N Wilton and Western Ave near Hollywood. He'd been under police surveillance in connection with the case. But the unidentified "person of interest" -- as he was called by detectives tonight at the press conference -- had a handgun and fatally shot himself after 6 PM just as the police were approaching in the lobby. He died of a "self-inflicted" gunshot and was pronounced dead at the scene. Right now there is a massive police and press presence at the Harvey Apartments because this is the first public development related to the case that has intense interest in Hollywood and beyond. (See Hollywood journalist Allison Hope Weiner's exclusive details on the cops' investigation for Deadline below.)

Christina Aguilera -- Exploited by Her New Man's Band

Photobucket

Christina Aguilera is the best thing that ever happened to her new boyfriend's band -- and they know it -- because they quickly plastered her name all over their website in an apparent effort to gain exposure.

Right after the news broke that Matt Rutler was getting all cozy with Christina -- the guys from the Nate Mott Band posted Xtina's name and Matt's name all over the "Tags" section of their homepage -- hoping to increase the likelihood that anyone doing a Google search for those two will find their band's website.

But, it seems somebody wasn't happy with the coattail riding ... because the Christina-related tags have since been removed from the website.

Christina couldn't have been too upset -- because she accompanied Matt (below left) to a bar in Newport Beach, CA on Sunday to watch her new man jam out a few songs with another one of the guys from the band.

Ryan's Weight Backlash


Ryan Gosling said he was "fat and unemployed" after showing up on set of 'The Lovely Bones' 60 pounds bigger.
During a round table conversation put on by The Hollywood Reporter that included a number of other Oscar Award hopefuls, Ryan said he and 'The Lovely Bones' director Peter Jackson had "wildly different" ideas as to what the character of Jack Salmon (that was eventually played by Mark Wahlberg) was to look and act like. "I was 150 pounds when he hired me, and I showed up on set 210 pounds," he disclosed.
"I really believed [the character] should be 210 pounds. I was melting Haagen Dazs and drinking it when I was thirsty," he admitted. "I really believed in it. I was excited about it."
Ryan said when he got on set, he was asked to hit the treadmill. "I just showed up on set and I'd gotten it wrong. ... It didn't ever become about the weight because the weight was just indicative of a deeper misunderstanding about the character."

Blake Lively and bff Christian Louboutin post



Blake Lively, wearing an amazing Prabal Gurung cocktail dress (with Louboutins, of course), made a speech full of anecdotes and genuine declarations of love and obsession for the shoes and the man himself. I’ve honestly never seen anyone in any awards show so visibly happy and excited just to present an award to someone. Lively’s enthusiasm and adoration for the designer was evident and understandable and it seemed the feeling was mutual. Christian said in his acceptance speech for the 'Person of the Year' award that he is often asked, “What do I think about when designing a shoe?” He then gestured to Blake and said, “I just have to think about her.” Aww.

That's former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi at the opening night gala of the musical Cinderella in Hollywood on Saturday. Is it just me, or would this picture make a great anti-meth billboard? "6 months ago, this woman was a judge on the most popular show on television. Now she sleeps in a ditch and panhandles for money with a cardboard sign that claims she's a Vietnam War veteran . . . EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS JUST 4 WHEN THE WAR ENDED IN 1975! Choose life or choose meth."

Watch 'Raising Hope' or Garret Dillahunt will jack up your car



If I had seen Garret Dillahunt on the street prior to this September, I might have casually turned a corner and high-tailed it out of there given his penchant for playing insidious characters. But now that he's slaying me (in the good way) every week as Burt on Fox's increasingly hilarious "Raising Hope," I would walk up, arms outstretched, in hopes of experiencing one of Burt's signature hugs.

A change of pace -- and expectation -- was behind Garret's choice to join the comedy, but as he tells it, genre hopping has always been part of his plan.

PopWrap: I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but "Raising Hope" was not a show I expected to love this much.
Garret Dillahunt: I think a lot of people felt that way – the critical community has been so good to us, but a few wrote it off from day one. They were offended, called it the worst thing they’d ever seen. I wonder what they have to say now that it’s clear what we’re doing.

PW: I'd imagine that incredibly off-beat sensibility is exactly what attracted you to the show though, right?
Garret: It really was – most of the work I’ve done has been on the darker side of things, but I did start in comedy. I try, as much as I can, to change it up – I think that makes for an interesting life. So I thought it was time to do something funny, and I was so lucky that a really great one was out there.

Brandy Wants a Boyfriend

Brandy is tired of being single.



The R&B singer, who calls herself a hopeless romantic, admits she is unhappy and wants a man in her life. "I put myself in the eyeline of love, but I can't quite get it together," she tells PopEater. "I'm not okay being single because I'm a relationship girl. I love the romance."

Brandy was romantically involved with producer Robert "Big Bert" Smith and gave birth to their daughter, Sy'rai, in 2002. However, a year after the birth, the couple officially announced their separation. Since then, Brandy hasn't been very lucky in the love department, admitting earlier this year that she has not had sex in almost six years.

Although the single mother hasn't found Mr. Right, she's still holding out hope. "He's out there. He's just taking too long. It's like 'Dude. Hurry up! Where are you?'"

Now that her daughter is older, Brandy is giving herself more time to go out and start dating again. What's she looking for in her dream guy? "He has to be funny because I love to laugh. Driven, creative, motivated and inspired. He has to be a loving guy, who loves his mom and family. And, of course, easy on the eyes. That always helps," she gushes.

But at the end of a long day, Brandy says the love from her family and friends is what truly matters.
"I have a good family and support system who've helped me with my daughter for years. They've helped me balance everything in my life. I'm blessed," she reveals.

Leona Lewis Attacked By A Cat




Leona Lewis has been attacked by an "evil cat". The singer was left terrified when the feline jumped on her leg and started viciously scratching her. The animal then refused to let go and dug its claws in deeper when she tried to shake it off.

Lewis, 25, said: "A cat jumped on me the other week. They scare me. It hissed and scratched my legs - I didn't know what to do!" She added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "So I got up and shook my leg, but she was stuck to it. It was an evil cat. I don't like evil cats."

Despite the incident, the pop star is known to be a huge animal lover. She is a public supporter of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and a vegetarian.

Lewis also refuses to wear suede, leather or any other animal products and is a committed campaigner for several animal charities and devotes a lot of her time and energy to the WSPA - World Society for the Protection of Animals - because they "campaign to change laws to stop the cruel treatment of animals".

Katy Perry uses blasphemy after 'Teenage Dream' Album of the Year nod

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Apparently using blasphemy as entertainment isn't so cheap after all.

Katy Perry was so surprised by her Grammy nomination for Album of the Year for "Teenage Dream" that she issued a religious expletive when the host of "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!" questioned her during the show Wednesday night.

"Are you feeling some Grammy love tonight?"
LL Cool J asked Perry, who was seated in the audience wearing a revealing metallic gold dress.

"Hell yes!" she blurted out, before adding, "Excuse me, sorry CBS."

She then held her hands up in a prayer motion and thanked her peers for the nomination.


During the concert, the 25-year-old pop star didn't shy away from impious behavior, engaging in some graphic choreography while performing "California Gurls." While singing the line "so hot/will melt your Popsicle," she gesticulated wildly towards her groin area.

Pulling an about-face after the ceremony, Perry ended her post-Grammy tweet fest with the simple hashtag "#GOD."

Christina Aguilera: Why I Filed for Divorce

Christina Aguilera remembers vividly how she felt as she signed the papers in her divorce from music exec Jordan Bratman.

"Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it," the Burlesque star, 29, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "I really didn't want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up."

The decision to end her marriage of five years was not easy for Aguilera, but she strongly felt she had to do what she thought best for her and Jordan's 2-year-old son.

"When you're unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer," says the Grammy-winning pop singer, whose own parents' tumultuous relationship led to divorce when she was 7. "That's the last thing I wanted for my son."

Since filing for divorce, Aguilera has been out in Los Angeles and New York City with a new man, Matthew Rutler, a set assistant on Burlesque.

"He's the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight," she says.

Nicki Minaj Would Love To Work With Beyoncé

Nicki Minaj may have worked with the likes of Eminem, Kanye West and Will.I.Am, but the rapper has revealed that she would love to collaborate with Beyoncé.

The Check It Out star, who has also hooked-up with Rihanna on a track for her new LP, Loud, claims that she is a massive fan of Queen B and she hopes that they will work together in the near future.

When asked who she would like to hit the studio with, the Right Thru Me singer revealed to USMagazine: "Probably just Beyoncé right now. I've worked with just about all my dream collabs."

"Like I’ve worked with Jay-Z and I’ve worked with Kanye and I worked with Rihanna and I’ve worked with Eminem."


She added: "Those were at the top of my list. Now that I’ve done that, probably the only one on my list that I haven’t worked with that I’m really, really excited about is Beyoncé."

Minaj, whose new album, Pink Friday is out now, also reportedly confessed that she "has the hots" for gorgeous Geordie, Cheryl Cole, who she has worked on the UK version of Check It Out.

Neeson: Queen Elizabeth "shed tears" at Narnia film ending

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It appears Her Majesty approves of the new Narnia film.

Describing a poignant scene toward the end of the third film in the blockbuster series, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," actor Liam Neeson said he became emotional during its royal world premiere earlier this week.

"I shed a tear the other night and I was told the Queen shed a few tears as well," he told a news conference on Thursday.

Neeson provides the voice of the animated lion Aslan in the movies, based on the children's classics by C.S. Lewis.

Studio backer Twentieth Century Fox will keep a close eye on how the movie performs at the box office when it opens widely next week, having taken over from the Walt Disney Co.

When the first Narnia picture "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" came out in 2005, it earned $745 million in global ticket sales and was the third biggest movie of the year.

But Prince Caspian, the second Narnia picture released in 2008, recorded global box office takings of $420 million.

Mark Johnson, a producer on all three Narnia films, told the briefing that he would like to extend the franchise further.

"It's certainly no secret that we'd like to make one more, and actually, we'd like to make several more," he said.

"I think a lot depends on the future. Obviously we'll see how well the audience embraces The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but yes we would love to keep going and do all seven."

U.S., England Lose World Cup Bids

Photobucket

In the end, English and Hollywood royalty weren’t enough. The U.S. and England pulled out all the stops in their bids to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups -- enlisting the efforts of two U.S. presidents (Bill Clinton and, via video message, Barack Obama), a British prime minister (David Cameron) an Oscar winner (Morgan Freeman) and a king-to-be (Prince William). But when it came down to the vote, the right to host the world’s biggest sporting event went to Russia, not England for 2018 and Qatar, not America in 2022.

FIFA, soccer’s world governing body, went for promise over experience in its decision, opting to break new ground. Russia will be the first Eastern European country to host the World Cup. Qatar the first Middle Eastern -- and Muslim -- nation to do so. While Russia is an emerging soccer power, tiny Qatar -- population 1.3 million -- has never qualified for a World Cup.

“We go to new lands!” said FIFA president Sepp Blatter in Zurich Thursday.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was one of the first to react to the news, writing on his Twitter account: "Hurrah! Victory! We will host the 2018 World Cup! Now we must get ready. And, of course, play well."

Both Russia and Qatar are rapidly expanding media markets and close enough to Europe -- soccer’s largest market in terms of television audience figures -- to ensure strong viewing figures for the 2018 and 2022 events. FIFA earned more than $3 billion in TV and sponsorship rights deals for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. That figure is expected to increase for the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

NASA Finds Aliens Among Us.. That Explains Kim Kardashian and Perez Hilton

Alien life has been among us all along, according to new biological findings announced by NASA Thursday.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Research conducted by biochemist Dr. Felisa Wolfe-Simon from the U.S. Geological Survey has turned the quest for alien life on its ear, suggesting that phosphorous, carbon, and the other fundamental elements found in every living thing on Earth aren't the only signs of life. Wolfe-Simon will explain the findings at a hotly anticipated NASA press conference today at 2 p.m.

After a two-year study at California's Mono Lake, near Yosemite National Park, Wolfe-Simon found that a bug will grow in the presence of the toxic chemical arsenic when only slight traces of phosphorous are present. It's a radical finding, says molecular biologist Steven Benner, who is part of NASA's "Team Titan" and an expert on astrobiology -- forcing the space agency to redefine the quest for other life in the universe.

"When we're searching for alien life, if it's not a Ferengi from Star Trek, what would it be?" Benner asked FoxNews.com. In his estimation, we've always defined life as something that has the exact same chemistry as a life-form on Earth. The new discovery will likely change that equation, because it means the basic building blocks of DNA are not quite what we thought.

Five Most Memorable Moments from QT's Roast



There's definitely an irony that the apex of great success and acclaim culminates with you sitting helplessly in a large room while a bunch of your friends and colleagues do their best to playfully humiliate you in front of a massive crowd. Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, the polarizing genius behind 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Inglourious Basterds,' is the latest in a long line of famous personalities to get the Friar's Club Roast, and as anyone who has seen his films could tell you, the man has enough strange quirks and fascinations to make him a very easy target.

Unfortunately, video does not seem to exist of the event (at least not yet), but The Hollywood Reporter was in attendance and has helpfully shared many of the evening's best moments. Check out that link for the full rundown, but let's take a look at some of the highlights.

'Vampire Diaries' Stars Michael Trevino and Candice Accola Talk to TV Squad



'The Vampire Diaries' star Michael Trevino is following in the footsteps of 'Teen Wolf' and Taylor Lautner before him: on Dec. 9, he's turning into a werewolf.

But don't expect too much CGI in his first on-screen transformation -- the believability of his full moon fever rests a lot on Trevino as an actor. And judging how he's handled losing some family members and discovering his pal Caroline (Candice Accola) also has supernatural powers, we think he'll do just fine.

I caught up with Trevino to hear more about his big episode, his wolf inspiration (seriously, I asked that -- what's wrong with me?) and that deepening flirtation with his best pal's best girl, Caroline. You Forwood fans will love his answer. He also talks about his dream guest star, and it's someone we think would fit right in with the madness of Mystic Falls.

Kanye Pops Up in The Latest Kardashian Scripted Adventure



"Kourtney and Kim Take New York" is a month away and producer Ryan Seacrest would like fans of the eccentric sisters to know that there will be guest appearances as well on the new reality series. The latest sneak peek reveals that Kanye West once stopped by the sisters' DASH boutique which at that time was still an empty lot.

"Mr. West is in the building," Kim Kardashian said after hugging the rapper. Kanye asked, "You supposed to open the store in two weeks?" after looking at the store's condition. However, it turned out that the sisters managed to open the boutique in time, inviting Kanye as well to the opening in early November.

The show is following the sisters' attempt to open a new branch in New York. Although Khloe Kardashian is not expected to be in the show a lot, she is going to show up once in a while due to her involvement in the business.

Premiere of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" second spin-off is January 23 at 10/9c.

Green Hornet Press Conference in Madrid

(xposted to ONTD)



Green Hornet co-stars Christoph Waltz, Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and director Michel Gondry appeared today in Madrid for the first press photocall of The Green Hornet.

Rogen and Chou star as Britt Reid and Kato, respectively, in the remake of the popular TV series which originally starred Bruce Lee. Waltz stars as Chudnofsky, the villain mastermind who is hell-bent on keeping control of the crime in the city. Diaz is Lenore Lewis, the love interest and secretary for Britt Reid.

While the production of the film could best be described as "troubled", with both cast turnover and director turnover (Stephen Chow and Nicholas Cage were both linked at one point then dropped out), and rumors abounded that Sony Pictures were less than happy with the finished product and conversion to 3-D, the film is scheduled to release on January 14th and test screenings have been highly positive.

25 Things You Don't Know About Me: Martha Stewart


Martha Stewart, 69, (Martha Stewart's Holiday Open House airs Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. on Hallmark) shares the 25 things you don't know about her with UsMagazine.com.

1. I tend to keep a light on near my bed when I sleep (about four hours a night) so I can write notes or do work when I wake up.

2. When I travel, I like to bring my own fresh lemons, just in case they don't have them on the plane.

3. Some of my fondest memories of childhood were sitting at the kitchen table eating white onion sandwiches.

4. I only beat my father at Scrabble once.

ANTM Cycle 15 Jane Randall Colors and Dishes about ANTM with Princeton's Press Club



Jane talks about:
Her post traumatic stress disorder from ANTM.
Being told she needed personality if she wanted to win.
Leaving Princeton after this fall semester for New York City (I think she mentions that a designer from the show said he would take her to an agency if I heard correctly).
She also draws out her emotions and is gorgeous.

Bye bitches!!

ANTM's Ann answers the most important question of all time



PopWrap: I have to ask -- all season long they kept showing this pre-competition photo of you sullenly holding a bacon sandwich. What is up with that?
Ann: [laughs] Oh god, I know. I don’t even know when that was taken – I don’t remember sending it in. I actually think my mom did. But it was probably one morning when I was really tired, not that happy and in the mood for bacon. I can’t believe they showed it that much – even my mom was saying that everytime it would come on the screen everyone would shout, “Ahhh! What is that?” [laughs]

What did you think of the finale?

Town that Disney built has 1st killing since start



CELEBRATION, Fla. – Celebration, Disney's master-planned, picture-perfect central Florida community, has never reported a homicide in its 14-year existence — until this week.


Residents of the town five miles south of Walt Disney World woke up Tuesday to the sight of yellow crime-scene tape wrapped around a condo near the Christmas-decorated downtown, where Bing Crosby croons from speakers hidden in the foliage. A 58-year-old neighbor who lived alone with his Chihuahua had been slain over the long Thanksgiving weekend, Osceola County sheriff's deputies said.

The community's famous friendliness is what brought investigators to Matteo Giovanditto's body: Neighbors hadn't seen him for days, so they filed a missing person's report, then went into his condo a day later and found him.

A few years ago, a resident joked with a reporter that Celebration would feel like a real town when a bike was stolen. Now, it has an unsolved killing on its hands.

ANNETTE BENING VS. NATALIE PORTMAN- oscar edition

Can Natalie Portman's psycho "Black Swan" ballerina snag the Best Actress Oscar from Annette Bening, a veteran nominee who caused audiences to swoon in "The Kids Are All Right?"



-- It may only be December, but the Best Actress race is already shaping up to be the most competitive in years, with everyone from back-from-obscurity Nicole Kidman to indie darling Tilda Swinton to newcomer Jennifer Lawrence causing a stir. It's a pity that the race has already boiled down to a smackdown between just two of the divas: Annette Bening, for her role as an uptight lesbian in Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids Are All Right," and Natalie Portman, the star of Darren Aronofsky's nightmarish ballet drama, "Black Swan," which opens this weekend.

It causes déjà vu, of course -- last year, the elder stateswoman versus ingénue-y battle lines were drawn between Meryl Streep ("Julie & Julia") and Sandra Bullock ("The Blind Side"). And the same arguments that were made on behalf of those actresses are being repurposed, almost verbatim, this season: that the older Bening has been nominated thrice before (for "The Grifters," "American Beauty," and "Being Julia"), and thus "deserves" to win. That Portman has, Bullock-like, "surprised" us by playing a part no one knew she was capable of.

In "Black Swan," the 29-year-old Portman graduates from turns in cute indie movies ("Garden State") and unapologetic blockbusters (the "Star Wars" prequels) to play a Type AAA professional ballerina who wins the lead role in "Swan Lake"
and becomes embroiled in an "All About Eve"-like war with a brazen new arrival (Mila Kunis) to the dance company.

Keri Hilson Talks “The Way You Love Me” Video

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Miss Keri Baby sat down with Blogger Perez Hilton recently to talk about her highly controversial song & video “The Way You Love Me” that was released this week. During the interview, Keri tells Perez:

“Perez, I don’t want to be held and caressed every night. Sometimes, I do want to be f*cked. You want it good sometimes. I’m talking about one man in the relationship, not being a slut or a whore or being paid to do things. It is racy but I can’t allow other people or the media to dictate what I can or can not do. TLC didn’t do that, Josephine Baker didn’t do that, Janet didn’t do that, Madonna didn’t do that. We can’t approach art from a fear perspective. You have to be fearless and stand for what you believe in. I’m a freak, it’s no surprise. I’ve been a freak in other songs. I’ve been a freak in other videos and we should make no apologies.”

If you’ve been in contact with my album..my album is called “No boys Allowed” but really means “No Bullsh*t Allowed.” In this album I was screaming in a room just like I was screaming on the song. I was screaming in a room with all my girlfriends and we were just yelling all the sh*t we really say. What would you say, what would you yell? One of the things you might yell is “I don’t wanna make love tonight, just F**k me Please!” “Come get it! I got the kind of pu**y that will keep you off the streets..Yes!..now come get!”

Bones Creator on TV Democracy, or lack there of








Bones creator Hart Hanson has insisted that television is "not a democracy".

Speaking to The Daily Beast, Hanson revealed that he has decided not to interact with any Twitter users he does not personally follow after fans insulted the way he was running the show.

"I was reading absolutely nothing that shed light on audience response," he said. "It suddenly occurred to me that what I was reading was largely just noise, much of it ill-spirited and, not to put too fine a point on it, dim... I didn't have to read all that crap. So I decided not to."

Hanson explained that he appreciates viewers' passion for the show but got tired of people complaining about his decisions.

"While I'm delighted that fans of the show think of it as 'their' show, that delight doesn't extend to any desire to listen to them tell me how I'm ruining 'their' show," he said. "The rude people - who are a minority but very vocal - are convinced that what they think about the show is what everybody thinks about the show and as a result they are furious when I don't do what they want. It's a kind of strange megalomania that becomes extremely wearing."

'16 and Pregnant' Family -- Furious With MTV

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
One of the families featured on this week's episode of MTV's "16 and Pregnant" is threatening to sue the network -- claiming producers schemed to portray them as reckless, unsupportive relatives.

Kathleen Green (left) -- the grandmother of baby daddy Isiah -- tells TMZ the network "defamed" her family because "nothing that aired is what happened" in real life.

Kathleen tells us MTV set up shots and heavily edited footage in the episode -- which revolves around Isiah, his baby mama Christinna (right) and the birth of their daughter Destiny.

Kathleen says she's particularly upset with a scene involving a DNA test she bought for Christinna -- claiming she came off as a cold-hearted bitch because MTV left out one key detail -- "They didn’t show that [Christinna] had told us she had had sex with some other guy."

Now, Green says her family wants to sue the network for defamation.


Calls to MTV have not been returned.

Lea Michele Says She’ll Come Back As A Teacher If She Gets Kicked Off ‘Glee’ In 2012!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It sounds like graduation day might be coming early for the cast of Glee, but instead of fretting about potentially being written off the show in 2012, Lea Michele is positive she’ll stay with Glee against all odds. “Maybe I would come back as a teacher on Glee,” Lea, 24, told HollywoodLife.com on Dec. 2 at Billboard’s Fifth Annual Women in Music Event in NYC.

In a recent interview with Australia’s News Limited, Glee Ryan Murphy said: “Every year we’re going to populate a new group. There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”

But that doesn’t seem to concern Lea, 24, at the moment. She’s just focused on her current success and the show’s TWO Grammy nominations for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Compilation Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media.

“We work really hard [on our music],”
Lea said. “So to get these accolades is so great. It doesn’t feel real yet. I just found out this morning. Unbelieveable, like a dream!”

Lea is so happy with her situation that she wouldn’t even dream of putting out her own solo album at the moment.

“I’m a singer, so it feels like a natural thing that I would do, but right now Glee is my number one priority,” Lea told us. “My cast, my character — we have our fourth volume out right now, so I’m going to take my time with that. I feel really satisfied right now as a recording artist. … There’s lots of things I’d like to do. I just want to, as an actor, continue to play roles that challenge me and that I enjoy.”

“And if you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, you’re probably thinking you’re all alone. But you’re not.
 

“There’s a world of acceptance waiting for you. I can relate, because I was one of those kids who internalized everything – I held everything inside. All of my pain.

New NBC Show for Steve Carell

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Departing Office star Steve Carell is staying in the NBC comedy business as a writer. The Peacock has bought a half-hour, single-camera project from the actor-comedian based on his early days working as a mail carrier in Littleton, Massachusetts. Carell — who is leaving The Office in May after seven years — will write the comedy, tentatively titled The Post-Graduate Project. It is described as a sweet and nostalgic take on the period of Carell’s early life as a mail carrier and centers on a small-town post office frequented by a quirky but tight-knit group of local twentysomethings. Carell has referred to his experience as a mailman in interviews, saying that he quit after a few months because his boss told him he was not very efficient. Carell will executive produce The Post-Graduate Project with Thom Hinkle (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart). Carell's Carousel Television will produce with Universal Media Studios where it is in the midst of a three-year overall deal. Carousel TV is also behind NBC's reboot of The Rockford Files with House creator David Shore, which is back in the works. WME-repped Carell, who won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Michael Scott on The Office, co-wrote with Judd Apatow the 2005 hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which earned them a WGA nomination. His TV writing credits include The Dana Carvey Show and 2 episodes of The Office.

Dancing Hot to Trot for Another Palin

Perhaps it's time for Dancing With the Palins?

It's only been a week since Bristol Palin retired her dancing shoes, but I'm told…

Producers are already hot to sign her dad, Todd (aka Mr. Sarah Palin), for next season.

"They want him big time,"
a source reveals. "They'd love Sarah, but they don't think that will ever happen, so why not go for the dad."

Despite the Tea Party conspiracy controversy that surrounded Bristol's success on the show—not to mention the mystery white powder and supposed death threats—producers think Todd will be "ratings gold," says the source.

No word yet if the former First Dude of Alaska has been approached by producers or ABC.

Also on the producers' political wish list are John McCain's daughter, Meghan, and Elliot Spitzer, the former hooker-lovin' governor of New York who now cohosts a talk show on CNN.

A rep for DWTS says there would be "no comment" on any casting rumors before the final lineup is revealed next season.

Smithsonian Under Fire For Gay Portraiture Exhibit

by Elizabeth Blair

The Smithsonian Institution is under fire for an exhibition called Hide/Seek that is being touted as the "first major exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of modern American portraiture."

There are some very famous artists represented in the show: Andy Warhol, Walt Whitman and Jasper Johns, among many others. But the work that so far has been the most controversial is a provocative video from 1987 by the late artist David Wojnarowicz called A Fire In My Belly.

Martin Sullivan, director of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, says the artist created the piece as a response to the "agony and suffering" of his partner who at the time was dying of AIDS. Using "vivid colors, and some fairly grotesque scenes, it's more a meditation on the fragility of the human flesh," Sullivan says.

But included in that meditation is a crucifix — a cross bearing the body of Christ — crawling with ants. The image, according to Catholic League President Bill Donohue, is offensive. He calls the video "hate speech" and says that "the Smithsonian would never have their little ants crawling all over an image of Muhammad."

ANOTHER UPDATE: Police Have "Fairly Good Idea" Who Ordered Ronni Chasen's Hollywood Hit



Hollywood journalist Allison Hope Weiner has an update on the Ronni Chasen murder case and emails Deadline the following details:

A police source close to the investigation into the murder of Ronni Chasen says that police have a fairly good idea as to who employed a Hollywood hit man to shoot the longtime publicist. Although the alleged hit man killed himself last night before police could take him into custody, authorities are still making progress in their investigation of Chasen's murder. Several sources confirm that police have a working theory that Chasen's murder was related to a business deal gone bad.

First Police Action In Ronni Chasen Murder Results In Another Death: As a detective said last night if the probe into popular publicist Ronni Chasen's slaying was concluded after last night's suicide of the person of interest: "It's not over yet." Police served a search warrant on a man at the Harvey Apartments in a seedy part of Los Angeles at 5640 Santa Monica Boulevard between N Wilton and Western Ave near Hollywood. He'd been under police surveillance in connection with the case and fatally shot himself after 6 PM with his handgun own just as the police were approaching in the lobby. He died of a "self-inflicted" gunshot and was pronounced dead at the scene. Chasen, 64, was reportedly shot five times in the chest in the early morning hours of November 16th as she was driving her late model Mercedes Benz west on Sunset Blvd towards her Westwood condo after attending a premiere and party for the Screen Gems film Burlesque. Her shocking death hit Hollywood hard because so many liked Chasen, a petite and hardworking PR-woman who specialized in Oscar campaigns.

Helena Bonham Carter thinks Bellatrix is sexy, DH is num. 1 at the box office for its second weekend




And I doubt many would disagree! In a new interview with The Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex Blog, Helena Bonham Carter talks about her wicked character:

"One moment she’s horribly revolting but then also weirdly sexy, maybe, or just disturbing to the mind when you watch her. There’s a lot of decaying, too, with the bad teeth. She’s been in prison for so long. The mad hair. She’s someone who has seen better times but still carries herself with the memory of what she was. She’s almost like someone who’s had too many surgeries and thinks they’re beautiful but in fact has gone the way wrong. There’s a lot of people like that now. For some reason, I can’t live with the joke that now you can either be old or you can be creepy. That’s the choice. Sad, isn’t it?”

ARE YOU READY FOR MEL GIBSON'S BEAVER? IT'S COMING.




EXCLUSIVE: I'm hearing from myriad insiders that Summit Entertainment has scheduled the Jodie Foster-directed film The Beaver starring Mel Gibson for Spring of 2011. Once the studio decided not to give the film an Oscar qualifying run, it was just a question of when the best release date was. I also hear that Entertainment Tonight is airing the trailer on Friday night's show. The film was supposed to debut in 2010 but the studio delayed when Mel's rants against his ex-girlfriend became a matter of public record. But Jodie has described Gibson's performance as "one of his most powerful and moving performances". (Although Gibson has 2 Oscars at home for directing and producing 1995’s Braveheart, he has never been nominated for his acting.)

In the film, Gibson plays a father who walks around talking to a beaver hand puppet. In the fall, a CBS News/Vanity Fair poll that found 76% of respondents saying Gibson’s personal troubles would have no effect on whether they would see one of his movies. Though Hollywood has a history of forgiving the man and not forgetting the moviemaker (Elia Kazan, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Oliver Stone), it's not clear what the public thinks. Summit faced a difficult dilemma given Gibson's domestic disputes and the alleged racial slurs and sexist epithets and alleged physical and verbal abuse of his girlfriend that's come out from behind closed doors. However, it's long been my stated belief that, if a litmus test were given for behavior, nobody would ever work in showbiz again. Ever since he made The Passion of the Christ, audiences have rewarded Gibson with their moviegoing loyalty despite her personal travails. Trust me, Mel's base is still out there. When I revealed that Gibson's agency WME Entertainment had fired him because Mel allegedly used the "n-word" racial slur during a private domestic quarrel, 50% of all the comments flooding in to Deadline were willing to give Gibson the benefit of the doubt and defend him.

Ryan Gosling Was 'Fat and Unemployed' After Being Fired from 'The Lovely Bones'



In The Hollywood Reporter's annual actors roundtable discussion, the "Blue Valentine" star says Peter Jackson disapproved of the 60 pounds he'd put on from "melting Haagen Dazs and drinking it."

Ryan Gosling spoke candidly with The Hollywood Reporter about his 60 pound weight gain for Jackson's "The Lovely Bones," the film the director fired him from just days before production began.

"I was melting Haagen Dazs and drinking it when I was thirsty," Gosling told us during our annual awards season roundtable discussion.

Gosling explained that his much-ballyhooed weight gain was all a part of how he saw the character of Jack Salmon, the role ultimately filled by Mark Wahlberg.

"We had a different idea of how the character should look," Gosling said. "I really believed he should be 210 pounds."

Jackson apparently disagreed, but the Oscar-nominated actor doesn't hold a grudge.

"We didn't talk very much during the preproduction process, which was the problem," he said. "It was a huge movie, and there's so many things to deal with, and he couldn't deal with the actors individually. I just showed up on set, and I had gotten it wrong."

"Then I was fat and unemployed."

Bruno Mars Reacts to Grammy Noms with F-Word: Fantastic



With seven Grammy nominations to his name, Bruno Mars isn't hung up on numbers – or trophies.

"It's been a hell of a year for all of us, and the fact that we did record these songs not too far from here in this little shabby studio, and here we are with Grammy nominations, is a little surreal," the "Just the Way You Are" singer, 25, tells PEOPLE. "We're just thankful."

His nominations include Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, as well as nods for songwriting. But there's someone else the singer-producer, is rooting for at the Feb. 13 ceremony: Cee-Lo Green.

Bruno helped Green, 36, pen his hit "F–– You," which is up for Song of the Year. "I think that's one of our favorite songs that we've ever produced," he says. "And [I've] been such a fan of Cee Lo, always wanted to work with him."

Adds Mars: When we did that song, he just sang the s–– out of it."

And he's not the only one giving the song a little recognition. Gwyneth Paltrow busted out a TV-friendly version of the song on Glee.

"I was pleasantly surprised, and I was impressed," Green says of Paltrow's rendition of his song. "I had no idea that she was a vocalist in the least bit, and she did a great job."

Taylor Swift & Jake Gyllenhaal: It’s Just Another Hollywood Showmance!

Photobucket 

There’s been a lot of talk about Taylor Swift, 20, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, lately. We know they went on three coffee dates in one week, we know they had a “romantic” rendezvous in London, and we know they spent Thanksgiving together with both of their families. But here’s the all-important question: Do you actually believe they’re dating? We don’t! We’ve analyzed the latest photos of the couple, published in the latest issue of Us Weekly, and we couldn’t help but notice these two performers really do look like they’re putting on a show.

While most A-list couples — the eternal union of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart comes to mind — do whatever they can to avoid the paparazzi, Jake and Taylor appear to be hamming it up for the cameras. Those huge smiles. Those exaggerated hugs. They’re like the new Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag! Seriously now, how many paparazzi are lurking around Park Slope in Brooklyn… on Thanksgiving?!

Here are a couple of theories we’ve got cooking as to why Taylor and Jake are faking it for the cameras:

'Burn Notice' Movie Ready To Start Shooting In January


Burn Notice fans will be thrilled to hear that the much talked about movie depicting Sam Axe's (Bruce Campbell) back-story is finally ready to start shooting next month. With Jeffrey Donovan set to direct, the movie will begin shooting on location in Bogota, Columbia. The two-hour movie will air on USA Network in Spring 2011.

The movie will be a prequel to the Burn Notice series and will be set in late 2005. The premise? After a faction of Columbian rebels make trouble for the locally stationed military platoon, Lieutenant Commander Sam Axe (Campbell) is sent down to advise. As the mission unfolds, Sam begins to uncover the dark secrets of the area, learning the truth about sacrifice, deception, and ultimately what's worth fighting for.

Burn Notice creator Matt Nix will write and executive produce. Donovan and Campbell will also serve as executive producers on the Fox Television Studios project alongside Mikkel Bondesen.

Burn Notice continues to be a favorite among viewers. The series was the #1 scripted show on basic cable this past summer ranking in 3.4 million in P25-54, 3.1 million in P18-49 and 7.3 million total viewers.

Now I have to warn you, that when it comes to comedy I’m pretty demanding. The massive amounts of mainstream comedy that Hollywood regurgitates every year are too packed with predictable plots, flat jokes and performances to amuse me. Anything starring Will Ferrell (with one exception), Ben Stiller (with some exceptions), Steve Carrel or Mathew McConaughey, I find hard to stomach, and I’m not even talking about flicks starring J. Lo and the like. So you see, my options are quite narrow. Still now and then my way comes a comedy that I find original, genuinely funny and well-acted – because frankly, that’s all ask. So I bring you a list of my very personal comedy favorites released in 2009-2010 (and already available on DVD, BluRay or both), that would make great Christmas presents for your friends, family, and perhaps, yourself.

I AM CRYING. BEST VOICE IN ASIA TO PAY TRIBUTE TO MJ WITH HIS FAMILY



VIA ARAMA:

It has been announced that singer AI (29) will be collaborating with The Jacksons (consisting of Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Jermaine) next year, as part of a concert series paying tribute to the late pop legend Michael Jackson. AI announced the news during her 10th anniversary concert at Nippon Budokan on Monday night.

According to an exclusive article by CNNGo, AI will serve as the emcee for the first two shows of the concert series, expected to be held in October 2011. She will also be recording new songs with the group earlier in the year, which she will then perform with them on stage at the concerts.

CNNGo reports that the two concerts are tentatively set for October 14-15, with multiple special guest artists standing in for Michael Jackson, though the lineup is currently a secret. After the two shows in Tokyo, the Jacksons will likely continue the tribute series with concerts around the world, and AI may be serving as the emcee for those as well.

AI has recently collaborated with several international artists, including Judith Hill, Chaka Khan, and Boyz II Men.

ANTM Winner Ann Ward Talks to TV Squad


Controversial 'America's Next Top Model' contestant Ann Ward took home the top prize in last night's season finale -- much to her own shock. When host Tyra Banks showed her winning final photo, Ward burst into tears and hid her face in her hands. Derided the whole season for her tall, skinny figure (Ward is 6'2'' and very thin), Ward had the 'best photo' for 5 weeks in a row and was the subject of much media scrutiny.

TV Squad chatted with Ward about her victory, what she has to say to the media's 'anorexia' accusations and what message she hopes her victory sends to the 'ANTM' fans.


How did it feel when you were up there, after winning the title?
It was just outrageous. I really wasn't expecting to win, so it was a big shock.

You were happy to make it to the final two?
The final four made me nervous, because I hadn't done emotional editorial before. And the final four [models] were really strong, so I wasn't sure what my odds were.

What made you try out for 'Top Model' in the first place? What was it that intrigued you?
I never thought about trying out for the show before, but got a message from a casting agent, Amy Lee, who thought I had a good look for the season, so I went ahead and auditioned. I really wanted an opportunity to break into the industry since I'd been struggling with it for being tall.

I can imagine that would be tough. I've watched the whole season and know how you eat a lot, but some of the things I'm seeing online right now are speculating you have an eating disorder. Do you have anything to say to that, other than you eat a lot?
[Laughs] Well... I just think I'm healthy the way I am. Whatever size you are naturally is just what's healthy for you. I can eat a lot and have a fast metabolism. I do try to eat a balanced diet, but my size right now is what fits me. And whatever size you are fits you.

And you know how lucky you are too, right, to be able to eat whatever you want?
[Laughs] Yeah.

Stephen Moyer Feared Early Retirement After Ankle Injury


Photobucket


TRUE BLOOD star STEPHEN MOYER was terrified he had ended his career early after injuring his ankle during a recent visit to Italy.

The British actor was worried he would be forced to enter into an early retirement after tripping on a sidewalk curb and ending up with a cast on his foot.

He tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "In Italy about three weeks ago, I injured my ankle while stepping off a curb. It was scary because you think, 'Everything's going to stop, I won't be able to earn a living.'

"If you're doing an acting job you have to sign a contract to say you won't ski, ride horses or bungee jump in case you injure yourself, but I was just stepping off a curb."

The visit to Italy was his and Anna's honeymoon, btw :-)

The King's Speech gets a poster that it deserves

Oh, thank God. After debuting a truly horrendous, Photoshopped mess of a poster for their bona fide Oscar contender The King's Speech, the Weinstein Company has finally gotten it together and released a poster that doesn't make its truly excellent film look like a third-rate Masterpiece Theater snooze. Debuting at Yahoo! Movies, the poster uses little more than good fonts, a glowing critic quote, bright yellow and a close-up of Colin Firth as he approaches the mic to get across pretty much everything about this film. It's classy, it's bold, it feels modern and fresh-- just like the movie itself.

Check out the new poster below, and for comparison's sake, the old poster below that (don't look at it too long, though, or you'll convince yourself the movie is as awful as the poster). My favorite part of it may be the font on the title, with the little crown on the "i" reflecting that iconic wartime Britain "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster-- one issued when The King's Speech's main character, King George VI, first ascended to the throne.

The King's Speech is out now in limited release and expanding wider, so hopefully every theater in the country can get their hands on this new poster and forget the old one ever happened.

Christina Hendricks Has Very Protective Fans. Well, duh.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Somehow, we’ve stumbled into becoming Speakeasy’s Mad-Men-and-spirits correspondent, which we have to say, is a pretty okay way to spend the evenings.

Christina Hendricks was on hand to host the opening of Johnnie Walker’s House of Walker pop-up space in Soho on Tuesday evening. The fan-favorite actress, in a striking holiday red lace CH Carolina Herrera dress, said that she became an accidental brand ambassador after declaring in a magazine article that the sexiest thing a man can do is order scotch. The Johnnie Walker people called her shortly afterward, with offers to host events. Hendricks’ personal preference: Green Label on the rocks, or Gold Label straight out of the freezer.

During her hiatus from “Mad Men,” Hendricks said that she had just filmed a guest spot on ABC’s upcoming drama, “Body of Proof,” which also stars her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend. “It was so nice to work together, and we got to be onscreen together,” she said. She wouldn’t say if her role was romantically-linked to Arend’s character.

Justin Bieber hates British weather and food

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Justin Bieber finds England "depressing".

The Canadian teen singing sensation is presently in the UK to promote his new album 'My Worlds Acoustic', but doesn't get on so well with the cold winter weather or food.

He said: "I couldn't live here because the weather is very depressing. But I like the girls! The food I don't like really."

However, the 16-year-old star enjoys hearing English accents, and thinks they lend themselves particularly well to festive songs.

He explained: "'Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer' sounds better in an English accent though."
