It is January 3rd now and I am supposed to pick the winning video for the songs "Good Day Today" and "I Know." This is very difficult for me - I feel that everyone who participated put in a lot of work and creativity.

Lucy Hale (aka Aria from Pretty Little Liars) remains adorable in Teen Vogue



Lucy Hale is just everyone’s favorite cover girl!

The 21-year-old actress not only covers the 2011 issue of TeenPROM, but is also covering the February 2011 issue of TeenVogue.

Lucy opened up to the mag about how she really got interested in acting, her closet obsession with Taylor Swift and her online shopping addictions. Check it:

On getting started in acting: “”I’ve only been living here for a few years. I never thought about acting when I lived in Memphis—actually, pretty much the opposite. I wanted to be a singer. Someone randomly suggested I audition for a few things. I thought, Why not? And I got a role on [Nickelodeon's] Drake & Josh. It was literally just a sentence, but I was so excited to be an actress.”

On loving everything Taylor Swift: “She’s amazing—listening to her songs is like reading a girl’s diary. We’ve gone through a lot of the same relationship things.”

On her recently found obsession for online shopping: “I could talk about online shopping all day—I’m always on Etsy, Freepeople.com, and Shopstyle. I’d love to go to fashion week! I’m learning more about designers, thanks to Pretty Little Liars‘ costume designer, Mandi Line. Each cast member has their own look: Ashley is the sexy one, Troian is preppy, Shay is sporty, I’m the quirky one.”

Lindsay Lohan Could Go Back To Jail For Probation Violation

Hosted by imgur.com

Lindsay Lohan may be enjoying her first full day of freedom, but she could have already broken the terms of her probation and could end-up straight back in jail, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Officials with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department say they believe the Mean Girls star, 24, violated the conditions of her probation when she allegedly got into an altercation with a former staff worker at the Betty Ford Center.


Riverside County Sheriff’s Department released the following statement to RadarOnline.com:

"Over the last few weeks, detectives for the Palm Desert Police Department’s Investigations Bureau have been investigating the battery between Ms. Lohan and a Betty Ford Center staff member, Dawn Holland. The lead investigator received a fax confirmation Monday from Ms. Holland’s attorney that she will no longer be cooperating with the investigation and does not wish to have charges filed with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Indio office for the battery.

"This case however will be submitted to the District Attorney’s office as the investigation determined Ms. Lohan violated several aspects of her probation, including the battery. A copy of this investigation will be forwarded to the Los Angeles Probation Office. It is expected that this investigation will be sent to the District Attorney’s office later this week."

"Dog Days" wins Current's Top 89 of 2010



Posted by Chris Riemenschneider
If you missed the daylong broadcast, the Current 89.3 FM revealed its Top 89 of 2010 over the weekend, voted on by listeners. Florence & the Machine's "Dog Days" took the top spot, which I can absolutely get behind. Both of those Mumford & Sons songs that made the top 10 have long since worn on me, though, and I personally believe Cee Lo's tune is the anthem of the year (although something is indeed lost in the radio edit). A lot of local artists made the list, too, including Trampled by Turtles and Dessa in the top 10. Interestingly, the top-ranking local songs also matched up pretty well with local music critics' picks in last week's Twin Cities Critics Tally. Here's how the top 10 stacked up:

 

1. Dog Days Are Over - Florence And The Machine
2. Little Lion Man - Mumford and Sons
3. Dance Yrself Clean - LCD Soundsystem
4. Wait So Long - Trampled By Turtles
5. The Cave - Mumford and Sons
6. Forget You - Cee Lo
7. White Blank Page - Mumford and Sons
8. Tighten Up - The Black Keys
9. January Wedding - The Avett Brothers
10. Dixon's Girl - Dessa
 

And here are other local songs that ranked high:

16. You'll Be Bright - Cloud Cult
18. Freefallin' - Atmosphere
19. The Chaconne - Dessa
22. Running With the Wolves - Cloud Cult
30. The Best Day - Atmosphere
34. A Girl, a Boy, and a Graveyard - Jeremy Messersmith
35. Violet! - Jeremy Messersmith
42. Not The Kid - Communist Daughter

2012: For These Pseudo-Celebs, It's Not Just One in a String of Bad John Cusack Movies

To them, 2012 is the end of the world as we know and they feel, well, they have mixed feelings about it, to be honest.



Who knew that Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were preparing for Demi's retirement Armageddon? But, as Ashton tells his crack dealer Men’s Fitness, he is worried about his floundering career the end of days being near. Even worse, are his hair plugs he worries about how we’ll all handle it when the time comes. “It won’t take very much, I’m telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button when they see how bad my new movie is. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites and That's 70s Show reruns, and people are going to lose their chicken lo mein noodle.

People don’t have maps anymore. People use their iPhones or GPS systems, so if there’s no electricity, nobody has maps,” he said. “And people are going to go, ‘That land’s not yours, prove that it’s yours,’ and the only thing you have to prove it’s yours is on an electric file. Then it’s like, ‘What’s the value of currency, and whose food is whose?’ (If they are Funyons, they are MINE.) People’s alarm systems at their homes will no longer work. Neither will our heating, our garbage disposals, hot-water heaters that run on gas but depend on electricity—what happens when all our modern conveniences fail?

I’m going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don’t have to worry.” OH MAH GAWD Y'ALL, WE'RE GOING TO DISNEY!!!!!!

But Ashton isn't the only crazy celebrity prepping for (the greatest Ben Affleck movie of all time) Armageddon. No way. Not now. Not never. Under the cut are 7 more celebs who are preparing for the:

Cee Lo's "F--k You," off his album The Lady Killer, has received four Grammy noms, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Kanye West and his fur prepare for 'Watch The Throne'

The self congratulating rapper proudly showed his blatant disregard for animal activist group PETA’s call for celebrities to forgo wearing fur as he rocked a nearly floor length fur coat and leather pants.

Meanwhile, Kanye and Jay-Z are serving up a New Year’s treat for their fans by releasing their highly-anticipated joint album within a week. The duo revealed plans for a collaborative album, entitled Watch the Throne, in August 2010 after teaming up for their latest hit song Monster.

Blind Items

Brought to you by Maru, God among mortals



1. You may be wondering what the real story is with this superstar couple. While they certainly make a good-looking pair, it does seem a little unlikely that they would have hooked up on their own. The truth is that she is just the latest in a series of beards for him. The arrangement helps both of their careers, and they are happy to go along with it for the sake of PR. We think that our musically-inclined girl may secretly be a Whitney Houston fan, because while she can’t quite match Whitney’s voice, she can certainly take a dating cue from one of her films. She dates the famous actor in public, but in private, it’s all about The Bodyguard.
Blind Gossip
My Guess: Jake Gyllanhaal and Squinty

2. These on-again, off-again celebrity lovebirds are back on for the time being. They are driving everyone around them crazy with their excessive PDA and inappropriate behavior. At a holiday party this last weekend, the two started having sex on a table and didn’t care who saw it.

Justin Bieber’s Mom Tells Vanity Fair ‘We Were Sent by God’ – PHOTOS


The February 2011 cover features Justin Bieber rocking a Hilary Swank look, covered in lipstick marks and an inset blurb point out that he is 16, has gobs of cash and is the porn equivalent to tweens on Youtube.

What they should have emblazoned on the front is a pic of Bieber healing the blind with a wink and smiting drug dealers by blowing kisses while doves circled his head creating a virgin white halo. Justin’s mother gets her two cents on during the interview and claims God told her to go forth and famewhore.Collapse )

Justin’s mommy on her belief that God’s Gift to the World isn’t peace or a cure for cancer…it’s The Bieber: “Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, tells Robinson that, after a personal encounter with God, she believes that she and Justin have been put on Earth to bring light and inspiration to the world.

Justin on being the Lord Byron of bubble gum pop: “I’m crazy, I’m nuts,” Justin Bieber tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Lisa Robinson. “Just the way my brain works. I’m not normal. I think differently—my mind is always racing. I’m just … nuts. But I think the best [musicians] probably are.”

Justin on being the Fairest in the Land – “Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?”

Justin on knowing that girls will sell kidney’s/dump their boyfriends to see him sing: “For younger guys, it’s like [they think] they’re not cool if they come to my concert. That’ll [change], I think; it’ll happen, maybe when I’m 18. But meanwhile all their girlfriends are coming to watch me.”

Amy Poehler Q&A

Amy Poehler is the type of actress who plays a character who crouches over the sink to relieve herself—in 2008’s Baby Mama—and then wins MTV’s Best WTF Moment for doing so. Pretty fearless indeed, but the 39-year-old doesn’t think she’s a daredevil. As the “Weekend Update” anchor version of herself would say, “Really. Really?” Poehler may not base jump, but her move to New York and her commitment to her career—from Upright Citizens Brigade and Saturday Night Live to Baby Mama and Parks and Recreation—looks pretty gutsy.
 

Leslie Knope, Poehler’s character in Parks and Recreation, is another kind of risk. It would be so easy to play an earnest young woman who works in the local government of a small Indiana town as a loser. But Poehler imbues Knope’s belief that she can make a difference—in spite of the glacial speed of her achievements—with both dignity and humor. You can laugh at Knope, but you pull for her at the same time—no small task. And the show itself, according to Poehler, is about “fighting against becoming cynical, against the idea of Ah, f--k it, nothing will change, therefore we shouldn’t do anything.”

No Superman or Batman for Natalie Portman

 
Despite being linked to both films in the past, Natalie Portman says she doesn’t “know anything” about the new “Superman” and “Batman” films, both of which she’s been linked to in recent months.

(Actors are known, however, to deny, deny, deny until the ink’s dry – look at Bradley Cooper and “A-Team”).

Portman tells EW (via Superhero Hype) that she knows nothing about rumours linking her to the role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”.

“What is that? (laughs) No, I haven’t heard anything”, the “Black Swan” actress tells the magazine.

As for “Dark Knight Rising”, in which Portman was said to be in contention to play the female lead, the actress also plays the ‘huh?’ game.

”Oh, I don’t know anything about that”.

It’s possible that Portman has had talks and has turned both those roles down, or it’s possible that Warner Bros hasn’t yet reached out to the actress about either role. With Portman recently announcing her pregnancy though, I’d say it’s a long shot she’s going to end up in either film now anyway.

Willow Smith's 'Whip My Hair' became an instant hit as an awesomely danceable song with a flashy music video to match. But the Internet flood of parodies and tributes certainly didn't hurt.

Josh Groban sings Kanye West's tweets

Josh Groban (with the help of Jimmy Kimmel) has a meme on his hands: singing Kanye West’s tweets. Hearing the crooner belt out “Man… whatever happened to my antique fish tank?” is truly a treat like none other.

Kanye’s poetic musings have been taken out of context before, of course. First there was the #kanyenewyorker meme, in which West’s tweets were juxtaposed with New Yorker cartoons. Then there was adding “Liz Lemon” before the tweets, which made West a real-life Tracy Jordan. I’m still a little sad that tweets-over-pictures of-Seinfeld meme didn’t take off, but Groban’s voice is soothing the pain away.

Actress Nikki Reed battles vampires and rabid fans with the release of Twilight

About an hour before I meet Nikki Reed at L.A.’s famed Chateau Marmont, I get a text message: “Hey, it’s Nikki. Do you want to meet somewhere else?” After she picks a mom and pop coffeehouse on Melrose, blocks away from the trendy stores of Sunset Boulevard, she explains, “I know I should go through my publicist… but the Chateau is just so formal.” For an actress who just turned 20 and is about to appear in one of the most hyped movies of the year, Twilight, Reed is decidedly un-Hollywood. Wearing a flannel shirt and faded jeans, she is the antithesis of the Emmy party scene that has gone on all weekend.

At first glance, one might think that 2010 was a weak year for sci-fi films. Truth is, its handful of good-to-great sci-fi films mark a fairly typical calendar year for the genre. 2010 just happened to be the follow-up to the '09 blowout roster of 'Moon,' 'District 9,' 'Avatar,' 'Pandorum,' 'Knowing,' 'Watchmen' and 'Star Trek.' That's a tough act to follow, but let's see how the year's offerings rank.

Which Actresses Do You Irrationally Hate?



Everyone has them: the actress who appears on screen and immediately creates a feeling of repulsion. You hate her vehemently, but can't explain why. Which actress tops your list, and just why does this phenomenon exist?

I had a run-in with my most irrationally hated actress lately when the trailer for Unknown came up at the movies the other day. And there it was: January Jones' face. I fucking hate that face. I don't like it on Mad Men, one of my favorite shows, and I certainly do not like it here. I think when it appeared, I actually let out an audible, "Ugh." And it's not like January Jones did anything to me. She's never said anything in an interview or done anything in public that I find offensive. She's not ugly or annoying or dating a man I find particularly attractive. I'm not a fan of her acting, but there are plenty of actresses who are lousy who I don't hate like I hate January.

The movie was up triple digits -- compared to Lifetime’s original movie average last year -- in total viewers, adults 25-54, women 18-49 (2.05 million) and women 25-54 (1.9 million).

The telefilm is based on the real-life story of Philip Markoff, a med student and member of the National Honor Society, who was accused of killing a woman he found through Craigslist.

It will air again Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. and Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Lifetime.

Lifetime aired Beyond the Headlines: Catching the Craigslist Killer after the film, which drew 3.7 million viewers.

jessica alba struggles with catholic guilt; is a "simple woman"



Jessica Alba has revealed that she is different to her media persona.

The actress admitted that she has another side to her that is never shown to the public.

She explained to The Independent: "I grew up Catholic so I have lots of guilt I can't seem to shake away. I'm really just a simple girl from the suburbs.

"But, a lot of the time, the magazines don't show that side of me. I'm proud of my heritage."

The 29-year-old also said that it is important for her to just be herself. She added: "I need to find time to be myself and not to be only a personality part of the business."

Rick Ross f/ Drake - "Made Men"



While his Ashes to Ashes mixtape just hit the web last month, Rick Ross is already plotting his studio follow-up to 2010’s Teflon Don. The Miami rapper unleashes the Drake-assisted “Made Men,” the first offering from his fifth album God Forgives, I Don’t. With a tinkering beat similar to “MC Hammer” and “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast),” the banger, originally intended for inclusion on Ashes, features Rozay’s signature stunted delivery and witty rhymes.

Yoko Says John Lennon Would Have Loved Lady Gaga



Yoko Ono says that her late husband John Lennon would have loved to see how the world has changed since his death and would enjoy the work of Lady Gaga.

In a recent interview with the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Ono says that Gaga is cut from the same mold as her late husband.

" . . . She's an artist, she's fearless and she pushes every limit, which we both always adored. She has played on John's white piano and I think that's wonderful," Ono says in the interview.

Yoko adds that John would likely appreciate the advent of social networking and its ability to spread knowledge.

"[Lennon] would love the way the world has changed. He'd love the Internet and Twitter. He'd be sending out pronouncements and messages and giving his opinion all the time on everything. He would be 70 years old, but he'd want to know everything that's going on. We share that curiosity and that energy," she adds.

Gaga sat in with Yoko during a performance by her Plastic Ono Band at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles last October.

STEPHEN DORFF TAKES BRITNEY’S ‘EVERYTIME’ SCENE BY SCENE

MTV Shows

Somewhere‘ actor recalls details about working with Brit on the 2004 video.

Six-and-a-half years ago Britney Spears and Stephen Dorff documented the ups and downs of celebrity romance and celebrity life in the somewhat dark clip for the pop singer’s single “Everytime,” off her 2003 album, In the Zone. When MTV News had Dorff come into the office recently to chat about his new film, Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere,” we had him take us through the memorable 2004 video scene by scene.
 

It was a little weird. [Director David LaChapelle] just told me to dis her and just kind of ignore her so I was just playing like a boyfriend in a fight,” the actor recalled of his opening limo scene with Spears, in which the two were surrounded by paparazzi.

This is our take on paparazzos too. They put prosthetic noses on all of them, which is funny. You see how they all look kind of weird. You see all the noses.

As the clip progresses, after Dorff and Spears scuffle with the paps, they make their way to their hotel room. “They said, ‘Start breaking stuff,’ [and] I said, ‘All right,’ ” he explained. “They had all this fake glass, so I just started kicking stuff. It was actually kind of fun.

When it came to the pivotal part of the clip where Dorff comes to a drowning Britney’s aid, he said he was responsible for most of the scene. “That was my idea. I knew I had to save her in the bathtub, but it was my idea to go in with the shoes and the jeans and just kind of find her,” he said.

First they had me change into my boxers. I was like, ‘I don’t think he has time. She’s dying.’ So I just go in.

While the “Everytime” clip certainly
touches on some dark topics, Dorff admits that it could have been even darker. “There was an original video, too, which was a lot darker. It was like much more like a suicide type video with pills and wine. It was a little dark probably for the fans,” he said.

She originally died in the video and then in this video she wakes up in the end.”
 

Dorff says his general feeling about the shoot was that it was a joy to work with Spears, who is set to release new music this year. “She was very nice. She thanked me for doing it early in the day. She was very sweet,” he explained, adding that they only spoke a few more times after filming the clip. “I haven’t seen her in years. She had her family and stuff. I hope she’s doing good.

Gemma Arterton Lands Lead Role in Paramount's 'Hansel & Gretel'

Photobucket

Looks like Paramount will be packing for a hunting trip.

The studio is on the cusp of triggering production on the Gary Sanchez project Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a dark action movie that picks up with the fairy tale siblings years after the traumatic childhood incident has turned them into bounty hunters. Jeremy Renner, who has been attached for some time, finally has his sister in James Bond babe Gemma Arterton.

Director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) is hoping to begin shooting the project in Berlin March 7.

Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Eva Green (Casino Royale) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) were all possibilities. But Arteton, who starred in Tamara Drewe, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Clash of the Titans in 2010, ultimately snagged the part.

Scheduling, as always, has been in an issue, since Renner is committed to shoot his role in Marvel’s The Avengers just eight weeks after he does Paramount’s Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Witch Hunters will thread the needle between them.

Japan bassist Mick Karn dies, succumbs to cancer aged 52


Japan bassist Mick Karn has died aged 52.

Karn, who revealed in June 2010 that he had been diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer, passed away at his Chelsea home today (January 4), according to a statement on Mickkarn.net.

The statement added that Karn "was surrounded by his family and friends" at the time of his death, and that he "will be deeply missed by all".

Born Andonis Michaelides in Nicosia, Cyprus, Karn played with Japan from their formation in 1974 until their split in 1982, and again in 1991 during a brief reunion under the new name Rain Tree Crow. He also worked with Gary Numan, Kate Bush and Bauhaus founder member Peter Murphy, with whom he formed Dalis Car in 1984.

Karn moved back to Cyprus in 2004 with his wife and son, but returned to London last year. Following his cancer diagnosis, several appeals were launched via Mickkarn.net to help cover medical costs and offer financial support to his family.

Duran Duran bassist John Taylor today paid tribute to Karn on Duranduran.com, calling him "one of the great visual and sound stylists of the late 70s/early 80s".

Mods and the "who?" crowd: there was a fairly decent outpouring of support when news of his cancer was originally posted, and I seem to remember there being a good number of people who quite like Japan. Personally, hearing this news as a longtime obsessive Japan fan (and so shortly after Sleazy died and the anniversary of Rowland S. Howard's death, two other musical inspirations), was absolutely crushing, and the way he had to go was so cruel.

Mila Kunis Talks Justin Timberlake Wearing Nothing But A Sock

Black Beauty
Black Swan's Mila Kunis — whom we asked about jealousy before announcement of her split from longtime boyfriend Macaulay Culkin — recalls nude scenes with Justin Timberlake and the last time she simulated oral sex with a woman.



Even if you haven’t seen Black Swan, you’ve probably heard about a certain sex scene between Golden Globe nominees Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman as rival ballerinas. Kunis isn’t crazy about that prurient attention, but the 27-year-old That ’70s Show star doesn’t dance around details of her naked romp with Justin Timberlake in this summer’s Friends With Benefits. She also claims that Family Guy, for which she voices teen misfit Meg Griffin, might be the gay-friendliest show on television.

RIP Gerry Rafferty

Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty, best known for the hits "Stuck in the Middle With You" and "Baker Street," has died at age 63, the Guardian reported Tuesday.


 

He was reportedly hospitalized in November with liver failure.

Rafferty co-founded the soft-rock group Stealer's Wheel in 1972 and the band's debut featured "Stuck in the Middle With You," which was later featured in Quentin Tarantino's film "Reservoir Dogs."

"Baker Street" appeared on Rafferty's solo album "City to City" in 1978 and hit No. 2 on the U.S. charts.

Cake transcends snarky '90s to produce balanced first album in six years, 'Showroom of Compassion'


Jim Farber


Cake specializes in messages you may find hard to swallow. On the long-running band's latest album, every gadget, transportation system and romantic goal meant to bring excitement, ease and fulfillment only emphasizes our shallowness and fear.


In "Got to Move," a character flits about, proclaiming his need for constant progress, when in fact he's just a nervous coward. In "Bound Away," a character travels farther and farther, only to end up nowhere (think George Clooney in "Up in the Air"). But "Sick of You" features the most representative couplet: "Every shiny toy that first brings you joy/will always start to cloy and annoy."


Amazingly, that woeful prediction hasn't proven true for Cake itself. Fifteen years after they batted out their first left-field hit with "The Distance," the band's sound and words still have bite - and an audience.

'Burlesque' leads Razzies contenders with 5 nominations



Sometimes it's an honor just to be nominated – but not when it comes to the Razzies.

The nomination ballots for the awards celebrating the worst movies of 2010 have just been mailed out, and "Burlesque" leads the pack, with nods for worst actress (Christina Aguilera), worst supporting actress (Kristen Bell and Cher), worst supporting actor (Cam Gigandet), worst screenplay, and worst director.

The glitzy musical was not, however, considered for worst picture, reports the L.A. Times. That distinction went to "The Bounty Hunter,” “Clash of the Titans,” “The Expendables,” “Grown Ups,” “Jonah Hex,” “Killers,” “The Last Airbender,” “Little Fockers,” “Sex and the City 2,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “Vampires Suck” and “Yogi Bear.”

While Angelina Jolie got a Golden Globe nomination for lead comedy actress in "The Tourist," the same film also got her onto the Razzies' worst actress list. Jessica Alba made the cut for worst supporting actress thanks to her work in “The Killer Inside Me,” “Little Fockers,” “Machete” and “Valentine’s Day," joined by Emily Blunt for "The Wolfman" and "Gulliver's Travels."

Worst supporting actor contenders include Mickey Rourke for "The Expendables" and "Iron Man 2," and triple threat George Lopez for "Marmaduke," "The Spy Next Door" and "Valentine's Day."

Thanks to the 3-D craze, a new category has been added to the Razzies this year: worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D. Among the movies that made their way onto the ballots: “Piranha 3D,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife," and “The Nutcracker in 3D.”

The official Razzie Award nominations will be announced January 24.

ESPN Announcer Pulled Off Air After Calling Female Colleague “Sweetcakes”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Longtime ESPN announcer Ron Franklin was pulled off ESPN’s Saturday Fiesta Bowl radio broadcast by ESPN executives after an incident involving the veteran broadcaster and ESPN-TV sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards.

Scheduled to work on the ESPN-TV broadcast of the Chick-fil-A Bowl Friday, Franklin and Edwards were part of a production meeting before the game that was also attended by ESPN announcers Ed Cunningham and Rod Gilmore. During the meeting, the subject of Gilmore’s wife Marie being elected Alameda (CA) mayor came up.

As Gilmore, Cunningham and Franklin discussed the subject, Edwards tried to join the conversation.

When she did, Franklin said to her, “Why don’t you leave this to the boys, sweetcakes.”

Edwards responded to Franklin by saying, “don’t call me sweetcakes, I don’t like being talked to like that.”

Franklin then said, “okay then, a–hole.”


After the meeting Edwards reported Franklin’s comments to ESPN management.

Gwyneth Paltrow: 'I Felt Like a Zombie' with Postpartum Depression



Gwyneth Paltrow had a blissful time during daughter Apple's first few months of life in summer 2004. Two years later, when son Moses was born, things couldn't have been more different. The actress found herself living a nightmare.

"I felt like a zombie. I couldn't access my heart. I couldn't access my emotions. I couldn't connect," Paltrow, now 38, says in the February issue of Good Housekeeping.

"It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn't believe it wasn't the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person."

It was Paltrow's husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who first thought she might be suffering from postpartum depression.

"About four months into it, Chris came to me and said, 'Something's wrong. Something's wrong,' " Paltrow recalls. "I kept saying, 'No, no, I'm fine.' But Chris identified it, and that sort of burst the bubble."

In the issue Jesse talks about the reaction he’s received for his portrayal of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the film:

“My mother saw it, and she said her reaction was that she wanted to slap me and then hug me. That seems to be the common reaction from people over 25. It seems those under 25 see Mark as a hero.”

The top film characters of the 2000s

The first decade of the new century is over, leaving behind a raft of new characters ripe for parody, imitation and sequelization. Some are holdovers from previous decades (Hello, Mr. Joker), some are as old as time (we're looking at you, Jesus) and quite a few are original creations of the 21st century. Here's a look at the top film characters, year by year.
