Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Announces New Inductees



Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, Dr. John and Darlene Love are the latest inductees to the pantheon of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the organization will announce on Wednesday morning.

Ms. Love, the go-to backup singer in the 1960s who sang on many of Phil Spector’s biggest hits — sometimes as the lead, but not always with credit — had been nominated twice before, but all of the other performers had been nominated for the first time. In addition, Leon Russell is being honored with the award for musical excellence (formerly known as the sidemen award), and nonperformer honors will go to Jac Holzman, who founded Elektra Records, and Art Rupe, who created the Specialty label.

As always, who didn’t get in says as much as who did. A look at the nominees who didn’t make the cut suggests that the Hall of Fame voters played it safe, after some criticism last year when Abba, the epitome of 1970s disco-pop, was admitted in favor of Kiss. This year, on the other hand, the disco-affiliated nominees (Donna Summer, Chic) were shut out, as well as anyone who could have added to the Rock Hall’s limited hip-hop roster (LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys).

Bieber to grace the cover of Vanity Fair! ldskfja;ljfdsal



Yes, you read that correctly. A source has confirmed to us that Justin Bieber is going to be on the cover of Vanity Fair in either February or March of 2011. When we told you a while back that he was being shot for Love magazine, many of you expressed disappointment upon realizing that Bieber was being shot for a magazine and not with a gun.

Love Magazine... now this?! OH LORD. The photoshoot is gonna be stunning, flawless, etc. They should put him in a Tom Ford suit. That is all.
HATERS/those who aren't fans - I'm curious... do you think you'll pick this up? Does VF (or any other high profile mag) have that much of an impact on your decision to read an article about a celeb you don't care much for?

7 Things You Need To Know About Maggie Q~

   Maggie Q is the star of the new hit CW series, Nikita. But to some people, Maggie herself is just as mysterious as the character she portrays.

What does the Q stand for? And who taught her the martial arts training that's made her into such a fearsome force on 'Nikita'?

Blake Lively takes a cooking class in Paris and remains adorable



Blake Lively, dynamic actress, and one of the young emerging Hollywood stars, is also passionate about gastronomy: recently a tailor-made workshop was held for her and her guests at Le Cordon Bleu Paris. Chef Franck Poupard demonstrated French culinary techniques by preparing the following dishes:

Guinea fowl baked in a sealed casserole, sautéed winter root vegetables
Soft centered chocolate fondant, orange compote

Blake was delighted with her course, she tells us about her experience: "My dream as a passionate cook has been to go to Le Cordon Bleu. Never could my most incredible dream have lived up to the experience. The food, the lesson, the chef, the ingredients --all the best of the best. I see why Le Cordon Bleu is world renowned.

First photo from Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's wedding!

Ever since she was a little girl, there were two things Nicole Richie wanted on the day she married: a show-stopper dress inspired by Grace Kelly's iconic wedding gown, and a real live elephant for good luck.

Both her wishes came true as she married Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden at her father Lionel Richie's home on Dec. 11.

They tied the knot in front of their children – Harlow, 2, was the flower girl, while 15-month-old Sparrow was the ring-bearer – under a tent transformed to resemble a French garden.

"It was magical," Richie, 29, tells PEOPLE. Adds Madden, 31: "It was the best night of my life."

For her big day, Richie wore three stunning Marchesa dresses, including one featuring a ball-gown skirt crafted from more than 100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle petals.

Kobe: Arm around Fish

I bet her BFF Lesley would never do that to her.


The girl who filmed Miley Cyrus hitting the bong has been getting threats since TMZ posted the video -- and now we've learned, she's gone into hiding.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ the video was shot by one of Miley's best buds -- a girl named Anna Oliver -- who has been getting threats from Miley fans via Twitter ever since the bongtroversy began.

Messages include:
-- "What would you do if you met Anna Oliver? -- Probably kick her teeth in"
-- "Anna Oliver.....I HATE YOU"
-- "We should find Anna Oliver and feed her to the lions!"
-- "Dear Anna Oliver, I know you want to be a little fame whore, but you're not good at it. We hate your guts. Love, EVERYONE."

Anna eventually deactivated her Twitter account.

We tried calling her ... she hasn't gotten back to us.

High-quality trailer for Tree of Life comes out, devil_details gets a lady boner


Unless you were one of the chosen people Fox Searchlight invited to their lot two weeks ago for a special “screening” of the trailer for Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life — or, you know, unless you spotted it pirated on YouTube; or in the theater when you saw Black Swan — this is the first time you’re seeing anything resembling moving images from the much-delayed film. Try not to hyperventilate, folks! Let’s hold hands and take a look together.

The first thing you’ll notice about The Tree of Life trailer is a total lack of dinosaurs. Boo! (Alas, Fox Searchlight must be saving those for the second trailer.) After that though, things are perfectly beautiful and stilted. The film features the same lively-but-hermetically sealed imagery that has become Malick’s calling card — out of context, any of these shots could be confused for a car commercial.

As the story goes, The Tree of Life follows Jack, a “disillusioned adult” who remembers life with his domineering father (Brad Pitt). The trailer spends a lot of time with Pitt, the type of bastard who says things like, “Someday we’ll fall down and weep, and we’ll understand it all; all things” when he isn’t glowering angrily. Sean Penn shows up, too — he plays the adult Jack — affecting a look that can only be described as “constipated.”

Malick’s obviously going for big themes here — life, death, birth, rebirth — but the trailer mostly just gets across that this is going to be a really, really pretty film. That’s good enough…for now.

VERDICT: Sold.

When this gets yanked off of YouTube, head over to Apple to watch.

BBC has just announced that Primeval Season 4 will premiere in the US on BBC America on the same day as its UK premiere on Saturday, Jan 1 at 9PM ET/PT. Primeval will join Doctor Who as part of BBC's original shows premiering during the holiday season.

When rips in time called anomalies started opening across the UK, dangerous creatures from the past and future began appearing in the most unexpected places, endangering lives and putting the whole of humanity at risk. A crack team of specialists were appointed by the government to deal with these "creature incursions." This job has proven deadly for multiple team members and threats continue to escalate.

While I know that Hannah Spearritt's magnum opus was and always will be the S Club 7 TV show, I cannot wait for the premiere of this! Seriously, if you haven't seen it - it's totally campy and ridiculous, but a lot of fun and if you have Netflix - all three seasons are available to Watch Instantly AND this is one of those rares times a show has died and come back from the grave, so that's rather exciting as well.

James McAvoy & Anne Hathaway up for "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"


Latest report on "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" casting has put the names of Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy on the line-up. According to Pajiba, both stars are up for lead roles with the actress touted as the depicter of Elizabeth Bennett and the actor circling the role of Fitzwilliam Darcy.

Nothing has been set in stone for Hathaway and McAvoy's participation as they are currently still 'under consideration'. Previously, Scarlett Johansson was thrown as the potential female lead after Natalie Portman dropped out of the project. Bradley Cooper was also said to be the leading actor.

Still on the same article, Pajiba addresses report saying that Hathaway could star in "Barbarella". While she is indeed interested in the remake film, the project has been stuck in development for years and her involvement could not make sure that it will move forward.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is a big screen adaptation of bestselling book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen. It is set in an era when zombies roam the English countryside. The film will see Elizabeth Bennett as a feisty heroine who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr. Darcy.

Pregnant Teen Mother AMBUR Endangers Unborn Child With Reckless Driving!

AMBUR WAS PULLED OVER UNDER SUSPICION OF DRUNK DRIVING AND SHE DOESNT EVEN HAVE A VALID LICENSE!

After a traffic stop in Indiana on Wednesday, Amber was given a breathalyzer test under suspicion of drunk driving. One source told Radar Online: "Amber was swerving all over the road and crossing the yellow line so the police pulled her over thinking she was drunk."

“They gave her all of the field sobriety tests, including a breathalyzer," continued the source about Amber's roadside interaction with police.
 

Amber was not arrested, but she was given a ticket for driving with a suspended license.
 

Will this latest incident mean anything to Child Protective Services? The state agency has been closely monitoring Amber in recent months. Leah's father, Gary Shirley, has been awarded custody in the past. But Amber has been providing care for her daughter ever since providing a suitable home for the young child.

Jimmy Carter's Ready for a Gay President

Jimmy Carter's Ready for a Gay President



Jimmy Carter is ready for a gay president — and he thinks America could stand behind one too.

The former president told BigThink.com it may not happen in this coming election, but in the very near future, he thinks the country will see a gay president. He says he thinks Americans are making great strides toward accepting homosexuality.

"Step-by-step, we have realized that this issue of homosexuality has the same adverse and progressive elements as when we dealt with the race issue 50 years ago — or 40 years ago."

He said with the country acclimated to having a black or female president, it's only a matter of time before it is ready for a gay one.

The Hot Seat: Emily Haines From Metric


Emily Haines of Metric discusses her influences, crazy times and even drops some father-of-existentialism on us in this weeks Hot Seat.

1. Tell us about your craziest touring experience?
We had a tour bus in Europe that was bright red with a massive photograph of a golden retriever’s head covering one side. To enter the bus, you had to reach underneath it and find a greasy button which, when pressed, caused the dog’s mouth to open. That was the door, the only entrance. Not kidding. Driver was insane. Woke us up in the middle of the night and threatened to leave us on the side of the autobahn with all our gear if we didn’t pay him for the entire tour, in cash, that instant. Talked him down and ran for our lives. Winter of 2005. Good times.

2. What type of college class would you’d most want to take and why?
Accounting. Got to keep up with the numbers guys that we hired to run our company MMI (Metric Music International, aka Me, Myself & I ).

3. What city in America is the most fun to visit and why?
Miami. We’re playing the opening night of Art Basel at the Oceanfront on 1st December, it’s gonna be excellent. The last time we played Miami was for a John Kerry fundraiser presented by Shepard Fairey. Remember John Kerry? Sigh.

Hulk Hogan's Wedding Day Tarnished by Beach Brawl


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Moments before saying their "I do"s on Florida's Clearwater Beach Tuesday evening, Hulk Hogan and his bride Jennifer McDaniel were interrupted by a fight that prompted police to be called.

"Yes, police came to the scene but we have no details to report yet," a Clearwater police spokesperson tells PEOPLE. "The officer who answered the call has not written up his report. We have no further comment at this time."

The waterfront wedding behind Hogan's home was interrupted when a photographer tried to take pictures of the couple during the ceremony, TMZ.com reports.
A family employee asked the photographer to leave, at which point the photographer allegedly put his forearm to the employee's throat, and a brawl broke out.

Since no one wanted to press charges, the wedding continued and no arrests were made, TMZ reports.

A rep for Hogan had no comment on the incident or the wedding.

Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) was divorced from his now ex-wife Linda last year.

Ani DiFranco, Then and Now


My first interview with Ani DiFranco was back in 1995 and ran in the debut issue of Monkey Magnet, a little music zine I'd started as a side project down in Santa Cruz, California—which says something about her. It wasn't like DiFranco needed small-time publicity. She was a fast-rising star, shaking up the folk circuit with her aggressive fingerpicking and smart, in-your-face feminism; this was during the Not a Pretty Girl period, and her press kit was overflowing with lengthy clips from the New York Times, Ms., Interview, Guitar Player, and more. She was selling hundreds of thousands of albums (her own) on an indie label called Righteous Babe (also her own) launched some five years earlier. Onstage, she was a hip badass—a funny, tough, sexy character with clever lyrics who completely owned the stage. Alternately assaulting and milking sweetness out of her acoustic guitar, she captivated her audiences—as far as I could tell, everyone in the halls, regardless of gender, was smitten.

By 1999, when I spoke with her again on behalf of Mother Jones, she'd graduated from playing 500-person halls to venues that held thousands—and was beginning to branch out, collaborating with the late labor organizer/storyteller Utah Phillips. She continued pumping out albums and touring relentlessly until a few years ago, when she slowed things down a bit—kind of necessary when you have a baby to raise. But DiFranco is getting back into it in earnest, working on material for a new CD. Besides her 20 albums to date, Righteous Babe now offers releases from more than a dozen other artists. Recently, I asked her to name a few of her own favorite things to listen to—and just for fun, I've included some vintage exchanges from that very first interview.

Mother Jones: What's your favorite new or upcoming release?
Ani DiFranco: Animal Prufock's new album Congratulations, Thank You + I'm Sorry on Righteous Babe. Animal is formerly one-half of the duo Bitch and Animal, and this is her first solo release since then. The album is just chock full of cool songs with a political backbone and an indie edge, and I had a blast working on it with her.

MJ: So, what's your favorite politically themed song or album of all time?
AD: I mean, there are too many great ones to pick. But for the purpose of this interview how bout "Deportee," by Woody Guthrie.

MJ: Favorite new release outside your genre?
AD: I don't know about genres, but I've really been enjoying a record called Run Wolves Run by a fella named Sean Hayes. Sean opened for me at a couple of dates out in California, and I've been enjoying his album as much as I did his live show.

MJ: Shuffle your iPod (or equivalent) and name the first five songs that pop up. (The truth, now!)
AD: I don't have an iPod (the truth now!) or equivalent.

MJ: Okay, well what's the latest song, good or bad, that super-glued itself in your brain?
AD: Sean Hayes, "Someday The River"

MJ: Three records you never get sick of listening to?
AD: Hank Williams, five-disc set

Together Again for

Kathy Griffin and news anchor Anderson Cooper have been paired up again for CNN's New Year's Eve coverage.

Griffin is something of a wild card on air: last year she said the "F"-word during the broadcast and in 2008, she cursed at a heckler.

Acknowledging these past incidents, Cooper said in a statement: "Once again, I'm terrified to be co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve show with Kathy Griffin. It's often bitterly cold, and yet after being with her for a few minutes on live television, I find myself drenched in sweat."

Griffin said in her statement: "The most trusted name in news just got a whole lot more trusting. I'm thrilled that they're letting me co-host New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper again!"

The duo's coverage begins Dec. 31 at 11:00 p.m.

Armenians pissed at Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant’s deal with Turkish Airlines outrages Armenian Americans


Kobe Bryant's two-year endorsement deal with Turkish Airlines has sparked protest among Armenian Americans in Los Angeles and nationwide, some threatening to boycott the basketball player unless he backs out of the contract.

In a statement announcing the deal, Turkish Airlines described Bryant as a "global brand ambassador." The airline is seeking to publicize the start of nonstop flights in March from Istanbul to Los Angeles with the basketball star appearing in a blitz of TV, billboard, print and online ads early next year.

For years, Armenian Americans have pushed the U.S. to recognize the early 20th century killings of some 1.5 million Armenians in what was then the Ottoman Empire as genocide, a term the Turkish government has strenuously rejected.

California has 600,000 to 700,000 Armenians, with a heavy concentration in Southern California, said Haram Hamparian, executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America.

"Many of them are fans of the Lakers and fans of Kobe, at least until now," he said.

Armenians especially object to the airline's close connection to the Turkish government, he said.

"This is not a matter of a private company that Kobe has signed a deal with," Hamparian said. "It's a state carrier with a heavy government affiliation."

The Lakers did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Many outraged fans have taken to radio and social media sites to protest the deal, and some have threatened to boycott Lakers games and Bryant merchandise, said Caspar Jivalagian, executive member of the Armenian Youth Federation's Western region.

"There's a clear backlash already," he said. "People have been calling us, saying, 'I hate Kobe' and 'I won't watch the Lakers anymore.' "

Some Armenians have called on Bryant to show remorse by using his fame to push U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) to schedule a vote on House Resolution 252, which would recognize the Armenian deaths as genocide.

"Kobe is a champion of national basketball and should be a champion of human rights," Jivalagian said. "We want to give him the benefit of the doubt and give him a chance to right this wrong."

Nick Cannon confirms the Mariah twin rumors

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So, once and for all, is Mariah expecting twins? Straight from the horse's mouth, this rumor is so…

True! Weren't expecting that, were you?

When asked by E! News to clear up the twin rumors, Cannon cryptically referred back to plural pronoun heard round the world.

"It's a touchy issue, because you never want to speak on too much stuff too early, but my wife, at one time, she referred to her stomach as 'they' and that probably wasn't the wrong thing for her to do," he said. "That's all I'm gonna say."

That's probably all he has to.

While it's possible he's just having a little fun with us, something tells us he already got that out of his system (remember Cleophisgate?). Guess we'll find out for sure when the bundle(s) of joy are delivered this spring.

Unfair Park dug into it after being alerted by Janis Burklund, the head of the Dallas Film Commission.  Burklund said she’d received the heads up from a high ranking exectuvive at the studio

Given its Friday ratings, that wasn’t ever really in doubt but after losing to the CW on Friday by 30% with adults 18-49 with a 0.7 rating for its finale, only a few lost souls believed in miracles.

Keira Knightley is not a famewhore, remains divine & humble


Keira Knightley says becoming famous “broke something in her”, because she was so ill-equipped to cope with fame.


The actress has starred in a host of hit movies such as Atonement, Pride & Prejudice and several of the Pirates of the Caribbean films despite being just 25. She is known to be fiercely protective of her privacy, and has revealed dealing with her star status is something she’s struggled with.

She appeared alongside Sienna Miller in 2008’s The Edge of Love, about two women in love with the same man. Paparazzi regularly followed the women, something Keira could not deal with at all.

“Sienna was better at coping with it. I think it broke something in me,” she explained. “I was told very early on that if I didn’t go out to openings and parties and events I would be left alone. I didn’t, and they still didn’t leave me alone. I knew it was part of the deal in the life I had signed up to, but the fear of it has never left me. I’m still not good at being recognised. I wear scruffy clothes and hats and keep my head well down. I’m sure people must think I’m a complete b***h, but I’m just very shy.”

Keira believes her attitude has made her unpopular with some people, as she can appear frosty.She is rarely seen out with friends in nightclubs and avoids discussing her romantic relationships. The star realises she is often criticised for being aloof, but it is just what she needs to do in order to get by.

“I was so young when it started. I was involved in Pirates from the age of 17 until 21. At that time people couldn’t get enough of people falling out of nightclubs with their knickers showing and I wasn’t giving them that – and I think it infuriated them,” she told the January edition of British Vogue magazine.

Designers Sketch Their Suggestions for Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It is certain to be the wedding of the century. When fetching commoner Kate Middleton marries HRH Prince William of Wales, everything about the event will be scrutinized immediately the world over and will ultimately go down in history — starting with The Dress. WWD asked numerous designers for suggestions. Thought it’s unlikely we’ve hit on the winner — the only Brit to submit was Elizabeth Emanuel, who, with her then-husband David, designed Diana Spencer’s storybook extravaganza in 1981 — the offerings here provide alluring ideas for Kate’s consideration.

David Arquette Admits He's Having a Nervous Breakdown


David Arquette is losing it -- just ask him.

During another rambling, painfully honest radio appearance on the Howard Stern Show Wednesday -- his third since his split from Courteney Cox -- Arquette, 39, admitted he's on shaky ground indeed.

Even the unflappable Howard Stern was concerned. "Are you having a nervous breakdown?" the shock jock asked. "I believe so," a raspy-voiced Arquette replied.

During his one-hour chat, Arquette said that "everybody is worried and concerned about me," and that he's seeing a psychiatrist weekly.

He admitted he's been partying pretty hard -- especially at a recent holiday party hosted by Adam Sandler, in which he drunkenly called Tom Cruise "Sean." "I was a little wasted," Arquette says. "Someone says 'Hi David!', and I said, 'Hi Sean! Then I realized it was Tom Cruise. And his beautiful wife [Katie Holmes] was there."

Cruise wasn't offended, Arquette said. "Tom was cool about it...I was so embarrassed. I was like 'I gotta get the f*** out of here.'"

Girl's Hair Catches Fire Live On Diddy’s Ustream



At a little after midnight, I received a call that said “TURN TO DIDDY’s Ustream, a girl’s hair is on fire”.
Unfortunately, I tuned in too late but video has surfaced of the travesty. A naked model’s hair caught fire while she was sitting in a tub of bubbles and everyone ran for cover. It’s hard not to laugh at the way Kevin Hart holler’d “OH SHIT, Did the camera catch that! Cut the camera off”. SMH..

Kate Gosselin Lied About Why Her Kids Were Really Expelled

Photobucket

Did Kate Gosselin lie on national television when she denied that her kids Collin and Alexis, 6, were expelled from school for their abusive behavior? Not only were both children physically harming their classmates, RadarOnline.com reports, but one even hurt an adult twice causing the school to dismiss them.

Kate initially went on the Today show and told Meredith Vieira that “they were not expelled from school.” She explained that the pressures of attending a competitive school combined with their parents’ divorce caused the kids to act out. Collin and Alexis “were having anger issues, acting out, having behavior things… I did what I could do,” Kate said. “I brought them home. I have them with a private tutor, an early education tutor, and she’s teaching them one on one. My kids are back and they are excelling along with weekly therapy.” Kate also noted that being on TV was not the reason for her kids’ issues.

Despite Kate’s denials and though the extent of the adult’s injuries are not known, it was enough to send the kids packing. “Both Jon [Gosselin] and Kate were sent a letter from the head of school explaining that despite their best efforts, staff had reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll in another program,” a source said. “It’s clear Kate did not tell the truth.”

Now, Kate and Jon are seeking other alternatives for their kids’ education. “Alexis and Collin could go to a public school but they would be photographed and harassed,” another insider revealed. “It’s clear the kids need to be integrated back into their private school, if they want to keep them at the same place. Or they can be sent to the school with the Gosselin’s other kids.”

“They can’t just be tutored, at home: these kids need to be integrated with other children,” the insider added.

HOW ABOUT NO


Sarah Jessica Parker is set to join New Line's New Year's Eve, while Halle Berry, fresh off her Golden Globe nomination for Frankie and Alice, and Zac Efron are in negotiations to also join the all-star cast.

The trio will join an ensemble that includes such names as Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin, all of whom who are in various stages of negotiations for roles as well.

The movie tells intertwining stories of a group of New Yorkers as they navigate their way through bittersweet drama and romance over the course of New Year's Eve.

Parker is playing Breslin’s mom, someone who relies too much on her daughter for company.

If a deal makes, Berry will play a caterer who runs into a former flame. Efron is on track to play a bike messenger who ends up trying to fulfill Pfeiffer’s New Year’s Eve resolutions in exchange for tickets to a big party.

The movie, being directed by Garry Marshall, was initially to shoot mid-December but is now eyeing a Feb. 1 start in New York. Second unit will be shot in Times Square over New Year’s.

Mike Karz and Wayne Rice are producing.

Parker (repped by CAA) starred in the Sex and the City movies for New Line, while Berry (CAA, Vincent Cirrincione Management) can be currently seen in the drama Frankie and Alice.

Efron (CAA, Alchemy Entertainment) is shooting The Lucky One in Louisiana.

Kardashian Family Christmas Cards Will Put You in a Trance State

I've come to believe the Kardashians are but an optical illusion designed to put viewers in a fugue state, wherein brain use stalls and the ability to recognize pores diminishes. Come, let us gurgle at the Kardashians' uncanny Christmas pictures.


Here's the "official" picture. (Do you think the Kardashian save "exclusive" content for their Christmas card?) Note the plasticine sheen and young Kylie looking like a skittish baby deer frozen in the headlights of a Orange Valley Hummer. Poor girl. She knows not what she partakes in.

Ryan Reynolds "Seeking Comfort" With Ex After Scarlett Split (Not Alanis)



Splitting spouses Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson won't be spending the holidays with one another -- but that doesn't mean they'll be alone.

The new Us Weekly, out today, reports how Reynolds, 34, and Johansson, 26, are dealing with the "civil" end of their two-year marriage (UsMagazine.com broke the news on Tuesday).

"Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months," a Reynolds pal tells Us.

Yet it's purely platonic, the insider insists: "He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way."

Suddenly single Johansson, meanwhile, has "confided in friends." She's curently in Jamaica with some girlfriends.

As reported on Tuesday, it was the sexy Iron Man 2 actress who initiated the split. "She's been unhappy for a while," the source says, noting that the busy actors were force to spend too much time apart.

In a joint statement released Tuesday, the duo confirmed their plans to divorce, and said, "We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it."


before the 'IT'S ALANIS' comments, ryan has always been close to one of his first girfriends, so i'm guessing it's her.

XXX-MAS TIME IS HERE



It's been a minute since we've heard from Kanye West, but the guy is back with a holiday gift called "Christmas in Harlem". The lilting track features "So Appalled" MC CyHi Da Prynce and Teyana Taylor and a gross reference to hot chocolate. Listen at Nah Right.

According to Kanye's Twitter: "Just got Dipset verses for Christmas in Harlem! Eeeeevrybody on it!!!! Cam, Vado, Jimmy, Pusha, Big Sean, Cyhi, Teyana Taylor & Musiq." We were wondering what Harlem had to do with it, and now we know.

Paz de la Huerta thinks not everyone can be an artist.

Clad in skintight leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana, Paz de la Huerta poses on the red carpet as if she were doing an Ellen von Unwerth Playboy shoot: pouted lips, butt perched to the sky, big boobs everywhere. De la Huerta is not one to make a subtle entrance. The 26-year-old starlet even steals the limelight from nearby Courtney Love, also hamming it up for the party photographers lined up at the black-tie New Yorkers For Children benefit. For almost a decade, de la Huerta has become notorious for making a scene wherever she goes. Tonight is no exception. She preens and prances around the fancy crowd like Betty Boop, while the rest of the guests are very Betsy Bloomingdale. The photographers snap every second.

mj, subo + tay tay fight for no. 1, diddy + ciara flop



 


You know it’s that time of year when Michael Jackson rises again.

Epic’s MICHAEL, the late superstar’s second official posthumous release (after last year’s This Is It soundtrack), hit retail Tuesday, and first-week sales estimates are now between 225-250k for the album.

That would put the Moonwalker in a vigorous three-horse race with Sony stable mate Susan Boyle’s still-reigning The Gift and Big Machine frisky colt Taylor Swift’s Speak Now for #1 on next week’s HITS Top 50 sales chart.


Those totals are based on one-day sales reports from those hardy music retailers who haven’t abandoned their stores to set up Christmas tree lots.

Two of the next three positions are Team Stringer/ Barnett acts, too, with Columbia’s Glee Cast Christmas and Jackie Evancho going up against yet another Sony artist, Jive/JLG’s debuting R. Kelly. Estimates for Kelly's typically salacious Love Letter are in the 150-160k range, which would beat most industry forecasts, as the veteran R&B superstar tends to do. That would give Sony five of the top six albums on next week’s chart.

Next highest debut comes from Bad Boy/Interscope’s Diddy Dirty Money, the latest project from P. Diddy, which would seem to be in the 60-65k range after an appearance several weeks ago on Saturday Night Live.

American Idol alumnus Crystal Bowersox’s 19/Jive/JLG debut is on target for 45-50k, with Atlantic’s Tank aiming for 40-45k and Jive/JLG’s Ciara between 35-40k.

Last 2010 release date is Tuesday, with Geffen’s Keyshia Cole, J/RMG’s Jamie Foxx and Interscope’s Keri Hilson the remaining big names on the schedule.

The market was up 11% vs. last week, down 15% vs. same week last year and still down 13% year to date.

what do you think about michael's new album, ontd?  i only like 1 song, tbqh.
r. kelly's album, on the other hand, is GORGEOUS.  r&b legend, etc.
dead @ diddy dirty money flopping with all that promo.

Release Date For 'The Beaver' starring Mel Gibson


Summit Entertainment announced just now that it has scheduled the Jodie Foster-directed film The Beaver starring Mel Gibson for a March 23rd limited engagement and an April 8th expansion. 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. 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. Jodie has described Gibson's performance as "one of his most powerful and moving performances". 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.

Did 'Burlesque' Bribe for Nominations?

So how did Burlesque manage that unexpected Best Picture nomination at the Golden Globes?

"If you talk to the top award-season consultants, they can barely disguise their lack of respect for the HFPA members, who often put themselves in indelicate situations," notes the LAT's Patrick Goldstein, "as with this year's crew, which took a Sony-sponsored trip to Las Vegas to see Cher in concert, then gave her film a stunning best picture nod."

(Or maybe they already had an affinity for movies where Christina Aguilera sings like a burp? No, it was probably the free trip thing.)

WABC-TV forecaster Heidi Jones accused of lying about rape attempt, arrested.



New York TV meteorologist Heidi Jones, a recurring face on Good Morning America, was suspended today after being accused of lying to police about an alleged stalker who tried to rape her.

WABC-TV says the 37-year-old Jones, the weekend weather anchor who joined the station in 2005, was suspended indefinitely pending an internal investigation.

The New York Daily News, citing police sources, says Jones, an avid runner, reported that a Hispanic man first attacked her Sept. 24 as she jogged in Central Park and then threatened her Nov. 21 near her Manhattan apartment. Jones did not go to the police until three days later.

Police told the Daily News that her story unraveled quickly and that Jones then said she was having relationship troubles and was looking for sympathy. She is due in court Jan. 5 on a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report.


Jones grew up in Indiana, and worked in Albany, N.Y., Billings, Mont., and Houston, where she was honored as the best forecaster in Texas.

Mods, I know a lot of people might not know who she is, but ONTD'ers in the New York area might. I know I was shocked when I saw the report this afternoon. She has also been on GMA quite a bit.

Stranger trollop claims to have Johnny Depp ~infatuated



Johnny Depp portrays himself as a family man, happily chatting about his "kiddies," Lily-Rose and Jack, and his "girl," longtime love, Vanessa Paradis, while recently promoting The Tourist. But there’s another girl who the actor met and quickly became infatuated with — and Star has all the details.

In the Dec. 27 issue of Star, on sale now, we have an exclusive tell-all interview with Kristen StephensonPino, the sexy 5'5 dirty blonde model Johnny met on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, where she was hired as a model by the wardrobe department. And after calling her over to meet him — and kissing her hand! — he invited her back to his trailer.


“He was like, ‘Darling, you’re exquisite — you’re by far the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen,’” says Kristen, 19. “It was one-on-one. I was in there for a few hours, and that’s, like, everyone’s ideal lover boy. He’s just the whole package!”

During the several hours they spent together alone in his trailer, they exchanged sexy banter. At one point she playfully teased him, saying that she really had a crush on his one-time Pirates costar Orlando Bloom.

“I was like, ‘I’ll take you and Orlando Bloom! That’s the only way you can get me,'” she recalls. “He starts laughing and goes, 'Honey, no, no no, I don't share with anybody. You either get me or me, and that's it.’"

Versus Network To Air UFC's Brock Lesnar Killing Animals in Canada!



Brock Lesnar has made a statement. He wants everyone to pay attention to it. He's a killer. A hunter. A ruthless predator. A bad ass.

"The Baddest Dude on the Planet."

UFC's top Heavyweight attraction, who lost the Undisputed Championship in a brutal one round TKO to undefeated Mexican American Cain Velasquez, traveled with Versus Network's "North American Hunter Television," "Trophy Hunters Alberta" and his long time sponsor Fusion Ammunition to Milk River, Alberta, where he braved over a foot of fresh snow and biting winds in his pursuit of his ultimate prey.

In a brand new video produced in conjunction with Fusion Ammunition and the Versus network, Lesnar is seen hunting in the Canadian outback, and killing a mature mule deer. The footage is amazing, because it looks like Lesnar and company crash landed in some Siberian wilderness. The video hit the Internet earlier this evening on the Heyman Hustle website.

It's the type of video reel that would make Sarah Palin proud, and Brock Lesnar gives UFC President Dana White a perfect video clip by declaring himself The Baddest Dude on the Planet.

Lesnar obviously learned well from Vince McMahon in WWE, and it sure doesn't hurt to have Extreme promoter and marketer Paul Heyman available, since the two are writing Lesnar's autobiography together.

You can see the video here http://heymanhustle.craveonline.com/articles/news/112370-brock-lesnar

Extended footage will air on Lesnar's episode of North American Hunter Television on the Versus Network in May, 2011.

Denise Richards Is Dating Nikki Sixx

Denise Richards just can't stay away from the bad boys.

After a tumultuous marriage to Charlie Sheen and a rocky relationship with Richie Sambora, the star, 39, has been quietly dating Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx.

Richards and Sixx, 52, "have been neighbors for years. They have a lot in common and are taking things slowly," a source close to the pair tells the new Us Weekly.

Richards (mom to Sheen's daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5) and Sixx, a former heroin addict who has been married to two Playboy models (and who romanced Kat Von D from 2008 to January 2010), had breakfast at Marmalade Cafe in Calabasas, Calif., on the morning of Dec. 12.

"Nikki was telling stories, and Denise was laughing," says a witness.

Just the night before (his birthday), Sixx alluded to a special someone on Twitter, typing at 10:35 p.m. that he had "a midnight rendezvous planned with a beautiful maiden."

Who Is Miss Golden Globe 2011?

Honoring a Hollywood tradition that spans nearly 50 years, another It Girl-in-training will take the stage as Miss Golden Globe at the 68th annual awards show: TeenNick star Gia Mantegna.

Mantegna, 20, the daughter of previous Golden Globe nominee (for The Rat Pack) Joe Mantegna, made her acting debut – alongside her father – at 13 in the 2003 film Uncle Nino.

She's joining the ranks of young starlets like Rumer Willis – daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis – and Mavis Spencer – daughter of Alfre Woodward and Roderick Spencer – who held the title in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

Mantegna has appeared on the Secret Life of the American Teenager and her father's show, Criminal Minds. She also stars in the TeenNick series Gigantic, alongside Grace Gummer, 24, who is the daughter of Meryl Streep.

When the cameras aren't rolling, Mantegna is spending time – or Tweeting about – her beau of more than a year, former Hannah Montana star Mitchel Musso.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live from Beverly Hills on Jan. 16 at 5 p.m. on NBC.
