Rihanna's 'S&M' Video Director Responds To Controversy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
As soon as Rihanna's music video for "S&M" hit the Web on Tuesday, it sparked a wave of controversy for its sexually charged imagery. Not only did it raise eyebrows among some viewers, but YouTube enforced an age restriction and 11 countries have banned its airplay altogether.

The video's director, Melina Matsoukas, wasn't too surprised by the reaction.

"When I go out to make something, I kind of go out with the intention to get it banned — [well] not to get it banned, I always want my stuff played — but to make something provocative," Matsoukas told MTV News. "So when you do something that's provocative, that's usually a repercussion. It's gonna be talked about or banned or slandered in some way. But it's making an effect and people are having a dialogue about it, so, to me, that's successful."

I normally love what she wears, but I'm so sick and tired of those ugly Isabel Marant boots she pairs with every outfit.  Also, ngl some of the JewelMint pieces are nice; I just wish they didn't admit to being very "inspired" by other people's designs.

More Dark Shadows Casting News!!!!

Eva Green has landed the female lead in Dark Shadows, the Tim Burton-directed adaptation of the 60s supernatural TV soap opera for Warner Bros. Green, who made a most memorable impression when she broke James Bond's heart in Casino Royale as Vesper Lynd, is negotiating to play the role of Angelique. In the series, she was a powerful witch who was alternately tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins. Depp will play Collins. Lara Parker played the role in the original Gothic horror soap. The French-born actress most recently starred oppposite Ewan McGregor in the romantic thriller Perfect Sense, the Sundance title just acquired by IFC. Green just signed with UTA and she is also repped by UK-based Tavistock Wood.

SO MANY CONFLICTING FEELINGS ABOUT THIS ONTD. Super excited Angelique is being called the female lead, not so sure about this casting choice... let's see her with blonde hair and then I'll decide.

Quickie Blind Item ... p.s. I haven't had sex in 2 weeks

This pregnant B list actress. I just realized that covers about half of Hollywood at this point now doesn't it? Umm, award winner. Big award. Anyway, she has been non stop gushing about her guy and blah blah blah. Turns out that is only for the cameras. Once award season is over, the guy is out the door. Maybe, just maybe she might keep him around until the baby is born, but I am hearing March.

30 Rock: Vanessa Minnillo's arrival is here


Late Thursday night, "30 Rock" is going to have to try and be up for a major challenge -- topping last week's episode with its brilliant Mel Gibson roast at the end.

This time around, the goal appears to superficially be a little bit simpler -- use a big-name guest star and hope that she brings in some laughs to along with it. We've know for at least a short while now that this guest specifically was going to be Vanessa Minnillo, and the new episode description from TV Guide sheds some more light into the plot:
"As Jack tries to cozy up to the owner of Kabletown, Liz fakes being pregnant to help Avery gain advantage over a competitive colleague (Vanessa Minnillo). Elsewhere, Tracy and Jenna clash when trying to share a gift from their new bosses."

As of right now, "30 Rock" needs as big of an audience as it can possible get. Despite being one of the funnier shows on TV, it is routine stuck near the bottom of the comedy totem pole in the ratings.

Joshua Jackson thinks Peter is being a man about the whole Peter/Olivia thing...


Does Hallmark make a "sorry I fell in love with your sort-of-evil alternate universe doppelganger while you went through hell" card? We know a guy who could really use one of those.

Only on "Fringe" would a character find himself in such a predicament. When Zap2it recently got the chance to catch up with series star Joshua Jackson (possibly our favorite human on the planet) at a Warner Bros. promo shoot in L.A., we discussed Peter's very complicated love life with Olivia (Anna Torv) and her alternate-universe self. Though she goes by many names - Fauxlivia and Alt-livia among them - we'll refer to her for the purposes of this article as Bolivia.

OMG you guys this is going to be goooooood.


 The father of murder victim Meredith Kercher has condemned a new trailer for the controversial television movie based on her death.

Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy tells the story of the events surrounding the death of 21-year-old student Kercher and the subsequent trials, which found Rudy Guede and later Raffaele Sollecito and Knox guilty of her killing.

A recently-released promo and set of stills for the picture show the three convicted murderers pinning Kercher to the ground while the victim, played by Amanda Fernando Stevens, screams for help and struggles against her attackers.

John Kercher has now expressed his outrage at the depicted scene, calling the images "absolutely horrific".

"It's so awful what these film people have done," he said. "Your imagination runs riot as it is about what happened but to actually see it like this is very different and very distressing.

"I'm also surprised they went that far in the film. I was told the original brief and synopsis of the film was to take it up to the point of the killing but not actually show the killing itself. It's obvious from these pictures they are showing the killing."

Knox and Sollecito have always denied involvement in Kercher's death, and their appeal is due to resume in March.

Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy - which stars Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere as Knox - airs in the US on Lifetime on February 21.



Kim Kardashian now claims she "loves" her naked W pictures!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kim Kardashian has changed her tune regarding her nude W Magazine pictures. (See them here)
Kim, whose W Magazine spread launched back in October, completely freaked out when the pictures came out - and it was all caught on camera during an episode of her TV show, 'Kourtney and Kim Take New York.' (I thought the whole thing looked very fake!)

"Looking back, I love the photos," she told Us Magazine on Thursday. "W Magazine is iconic so I'm really happy that I did it and that those are the photos."

That wasn't quite how she reacted on the show.

"Oh my God, I'm more naked that I was in Playboy," Kim told her sisters on the show. "I'm so mad right now. [The magazine] promised I would be covered with artwork -- you can see the nipples!"

The tears, she told Us, came because even though she wasn't wearing any clothing when the cameras took the photos, she wasn't expecting nude shots.

"Looking back, that was my initial reaction when I saw the pictures and I was just really upset. I do think the pictures are beautiful."

You Might Be a Member of This Dating Site and Not Even Know It


A couple of artists have created a fake 'dating site' by scraping 250,000 Facebook profiles without Facebook's permission. Lovely-faces.com is your source for gawking at strangers who haven't adjusted their Facebook privacy settings!

Lovely-faces.com claims to be a "dating agency" but it's not, really. It's a database of names and profile pictures scraped from publicly-accessible Facebook profiles; the pictures have been analyzed and grouped into various "characters" you can use to filter your search for a mate: "easy-going," "funny," etc. There's no sign up, and the only way you can arrange a date is by clicking through to the unsuspecting person's actual Facebook profile and messaging them. And good luck with that! (Facebook is pissed: "We're investigating this site and will take appropriate action," a spokesman told Wired.)

Instead, Lovely-faces is an project by two Italian artists, Paolo Cirio and Alessandro Ludovic, meant to illustrate "how fragile a virtual identity given to a proprietary platform can be," according to their artists' statement. Also, to illustrate how creepy an art project can be.

Update: Lovely-faces.com appears to be down.

Halle Berry's Nasty Email To Gabriel Aubry: "You Were Only Good For One Thing"

Halle Berry sent the father of her daughter a scorching email that said, "You were only good for one thing... Thanks for the donation." RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the contents of that message sent to Gabriel Aubry, who is locked in a nasty custody battle with the Oscar winning star. People close to Halle claim that Aubry used a racial slur against her as sources on both sides are trading accusations. One source close to Aubry tells RadarOnline.com that he has never heard Gabriel use the 'N' word and can't imagine him doing so.

"It's just not something that would come out of Gabriel's mouth," the source said. "I'll confess that I've heard him call her "a f***ing b**ch" before -- when he's been provoked, but I am talking serious provocation."And it's very, very rare... usually when she would call him and go crazy at him he would go silent and let her rant and rave then just ask her 'are you finished now?'. I think that used to wind her up more than if he lost his cool with her, which, admittedly I know he did on a couple of occasions. "But there's no way he was ever abusive to her. It's completely the other way around if anything!

"Halle's timing in these 'revelations' speaks volumes. It's amazing how she's only now chosen to come forward about all this 'abuse' and Gabriel's 'bad parenting', basically after he went to court to legally establish his parental rights.

"All Gabriel wanted was to ensure his legal entitled access to his daughter, and to not have to be at the mercy of Halle's moods as to when and how he could see Nahla. And now Halle's totally gone off the deep end, because it's all about her and it's all about her controlling Gabriel and controlling the situation."

"She's totally gone into spin mode and is trying desperately to paint herself as this tragic victim figure, as she's done many times in the past."

"But I've seen evidence to the contrary, and trust me - she's no tragic victim, far from it."

"I honestly think Gabriel should release some of these messages he has from Halle, and tell his side of the story, but he won't, he said he's going to save them for family court, which will be a private, press-free environment. I know it sounds like I'm painting a picture but Gabriel truly does not want to do anything at all that could potentially damage his daughter, and he knows attacking Halle in the press would ultimately do that."

"Unlike Halle Berry Gabriel is not concerned with the public believing he is the 'wronged one' and with controlling his image - he is concerned with his daughter and her welfare."

"Perhaps if Halle spent more time truly worrying about that and less time worrying about how she's being portrayed in the press the situation would be better and easier for all concerned."   source


Brand new clip from Glee episode 2.12 "Silly Love Songs"

What a ladies man! IDLYITW posted this picture of Russell Brand in high school! He's was a strange looking dude, even in his teens!

Russell opened up to People Magazine yesterday about what it's like to kiss his Jennifer Garner in their upcoming movie, Arthur.
Russell Brand is one lucky guy.
Aside from being married to Katy Perry, he gets to make out with Jennifer Garner and share a bed with Helen Mirren in his latest film, Arthur. In it, Brand plays a wealthy guy who woos lots of beauties, including Garner, whom he likens to a "fairy princess."
So what was it like kissing his leading lady?
"There's a brand of red-velvet cake; her mouth is made of that," he tells NextMovie.com. "She smashes you in the mouth [in] those kissing scenes. If I was Ben Affleck, man, I'd be pissed off."

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Single: Racist, Simplistic, Condescending Garbage!

"Pop icon Lady Gaga can`t seem to catch a break with her recently released song "Born This Way". First she was accused of sounding too much like Christina Aguilera`s in `Beautiful` and then of borrowing the idea and lyrics from Carl Bean`s `Born this Way` and now some Arizona Latino groups are chiming in with their opinion.

Organizations like Chicanos Unidos Arizona and MEChA do not like Lady Gaga`s use of the words `Chola` and `Orient` in her lyrics, viewing both as being racist and derogatory.

The word chola according to the critics refers to Latina girls in gangs, Latinas from the barrio who have a certain look about them and conjure very negative stereotypes."

"No matter black, white or beige 
Chola or orient made 
I`m on the right track, baby "

As an Hispanic liberal who has been writing essays supporting gay rights for twelve years, I agree with the pro-gay sentiments of this song. But just because a song has life-affirming lyrics it doesn`t necessarily means it`s a great work of art. Lady Gaga`s new single has no subtlety or nuance, it sounds like something that a beauty queen who yearns for world peace would write.

Are Latinos supposed to be grateful that a white superstar, born of privilege, included a racist shout out to our community? Not all Latino ladies are "cholas" in the barrio, some of them are teachers, writers, engineers and nurses and doctors.

Don`t waste your hard-earned money downloading "Born This Way", if you want to hear a great song with great lyrics give Christina Aguilera`s "Beautiful" a spin.

Lady Gaga should apologize to Hispanics, Christina Aguilera, Carl Bean and pop music fans for her execrable song, and she should immediately pull her song from the market.

"Born This Way" makes Debby Boone`s "You Light Up My Life" seem like the greatest song in the history of pop music.

Ralph Fiennes might play a shady creeper, for a change, in "Bond 23"

Ralph Fiennes isn't quite finished facing those pesky little troublemakers from Hogwarts, but that's not stopping him from zeroing in on his next franchise.

Instead of kids and snake faces, the two-time Oscar nominee is looking for more adult thrills -- shaken, not stirred. As if Javier Bardem wasn't enough to whet our appetites about Sam Mendes's take on 007, a new report from the Daily Mail states that Ralph Fiennes is now in talks with the Bond crew for a starring role in the upcoming Bond 23. There's no word on whether this is another villain for James Bond to face, but it is said to be a "darkly complex" role.

In fact, although Fiennes was eager to put aside the regular ol' action films (he was also in Clash of the Titans last year), he was lured in by Mendes's "revolutionary" plans for the film. A source told the site: "Mendes has pushed the film into darker territory where the characters are modern, mature and challenging." Moreover, the source claims that Fiennes was approached because "the part is one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on -- and Ralph's name is top of our list."

Between Bardem, Fiennes and all this tantalizing buzz, this certainly sounds like a whole new world of Bond. The only question now is how the classic Bond girls fit into this. Will we see fewer bikinis and more acting and intrigue?

Bond 23 will hit theaters in November 2012. In the meantime, Fiennes will be busy with the release of his Shakespeare adaptation, Coriolanus, which premieres at the Berlin Film Festival this year.

Sounds fun!

Bruno Mars Gets Plea Deal in Drug Bust

Bruno Mars' plea deal is now official ... he won't have to do jail time for his cocaine arrest last year, and if  he keeps his nose clean for the next year ... it all goes away.
As TMZ first reported, Mars and the Clark County D.A. struck a deal in which Mars pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance, but the charge will be expunged from his record if he stays out of trouble for the next 12 months.

Mars was in court today with his lawyers, Blair Berk and David Chesnoff, when he formally entered his plea. He also has to complete 200 hours of community service.

Mars was arrested in September at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, after a bathroom attendant ratted him out and told security there was a man in a stall doing drugs.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Others to Perform at the Oscars

The Academy’s Twitter feed just noted the following:

To which I say: Great. It was grossly disrespectful, I thought, to suddenly jerk them from the telecast last year (and if you heard some of the things being said of the nominees — by the telecast’s producers — behind the scenes last year, you might have been riled up a bit, too). I think Ryan Bingham missed out on a great opportunity to reach a global audience with one of the best winners in that category in some time.

But anyway, obviously they see having someone like Gwyneth Paltrow perform on the show (as she did recently on the CMT awards) as a ratings asset. Ditto Mandy Moore (who will be performing “I See the Light” with Zachary Levi and Alan Menken). A.R. Rahman will do “If I Rise” with Florence + The Machine (no Dido) and Randy Newman will be there to belt out “We Belong Together.”

A never-before-seen photograph of Princes William and Harry will show the brothers in a whole new light when it goes on display for the first time.

The intimate black-and-white picture captures the princes, dressed in jeans, chinos and shirts, as close as ever.

Taken in December 2006 by photographer Fergus Greer, the picture was commissioned for use around the time of the Concert for Diana - a 2007 musical tribute to commemorate the life of the princes' mother - but was never released.

Rap legend Andre 3000 admires ke$ha's flow

Ke$ha nabbed a coveted verse from André 3000 on the remix to “Sleazy,” but the unlikely collaboration wasn’t a fluke. The pop star reveals how she got the elusive OutKast member on her song and the compliment he paid her.

“I sent him the track and was fully aware that he’s only been on a few songs in the past five years. But he ended up liking it,” Ke$ha told Rolling Stone. “We got on the phone, and he said, ‘With a flow like that, you could definitely have a career as a rapper.’ It was the biggest compliment I’ve ever had. It was coming from a god!”

Compliments aside, the “TiK ToK” songstress gushed that Three Stacks has always been in her top MCs list. “He’s one of my favorite musicians, lyricists, rappers, of all time,” she continued.

André has kept his features to a minimum in recent years, popping up on tracks for Chris Brown, Ciara, and Big Boi, and turning down an offer from Drake.

Following her opening slot on Rihanna’s tour last year, Ke$ha is set to launch her headlining “Get $leazy Tour” on February 15 in Portland, Oregon.

BFF for life at a Lakers Game yesterday

Leonardo DiCaprio watches the San Antonio Spurs beat the Los Angeles Lakers by the final score of 89-88 at the Staples Center on Thursday (February 3) in Los Angeles.

The 36-year-old actor is set to star in director Clint Eastwood’s film J. Edgar, a biopic about FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, who was rumored to be a closeted homosexual and cross-dresser. Armie Hammer (The Social Network), who plays Hoover’s Associate Director of the FBI and rumored lover, revealed that there are “a ton of kissing scenes” with DiCaprio.

“I actually just met [Leo] for the first time Saturday at the DGA Awards. Sure, we talked business,” Hammer told E!. “He’s a talented actor. I’m not nervous or afraid of it being awkward. The script is great. The scenes are in there for a reason. I’m really excited.”

I said it's NEAR the In-n-Out Burger

In the mid-to-late-90's, Tara Reid made her name playing dumb blondes. If she has any complaints about type casting, this may not help.

Speaking at a Comedy Club benefit show, Reid gave an interviewer some updates about her career, including one very curious coming attraction:

"I have a movie coming out called 'The Fields,'" she said. "I have another one coming out that I produced with my brother, called 'The Irishman.' And we'll be doing 'American Pie 4' this year and 'Big Lebowski 2' this year."

'Lebowski' writers and directors Joel and Ethan Coen sometimes work in mysterious ways, but there had never been any mention about definitely doing a follow up to their 1998 cult hit with Jeff Bridges, even as they promoted their new, Oscar-nominated film with The Dude himself, 'True Grit.' So what did they have to say when they heard Tara's news?

"I'm glad she's working on it," Ethan laughed in an interview with Austin360.com. But do he and his brother have plans to work on it? "Well, we don't but we'll watch it when it comes out," he said. Joel added, "Especially if Tara's in it."

For her part, Reid's reps wrote to Entertainment Weekly, saying, "She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make 'Big Lebowski 2' and have all the original cast members in it, so she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said."

Perhaps she was referring to a July interview in which Bridges said that he and the Coens had spoken about it, but nothing was planned.

"We talked about it occasionally [while making 'True Grit'], but no plans man, no plans," Bridges said according to MTV. "No, no, no, I don't think it's gonna happen... But if it happens -- what a wonderful surprise!"

Back in December, Bridges revealed that he nearly didn't take the now iconic part of The Dude -- it creeped him out, he said.

Can Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester Become the Box Office’s Queen B?


This weekend, following in the footsteps of everyone from Glenn Close and Jennifer Jason Leigh to Erika Christensen and Ali Larter, Leighton Meester will get her stalk on. The Gossip Girl is co-starring in The Roommate, a horror flick in the Single White Female mode, playing an unbalanced obsessive (who won’t stop touching other people’s stuff). It’s been a busy winter for Meester. After spending her first few years on Gossip Girl seemingly just as focused on music and fashion as on the movies, she now has her two biggest film roles to date coming out in quick succession. (Before The Roommate she was a country-singing beauty queen in January's Country Strong.) Can the one-two punch of these films help Meester establish herself as a film actress, or is her Gossip Girl persona too strong? Having said she's going to be done with Gossip Girl in two years, is she positioned to make the jump from the small to the big screen? We asked industry insiders these questions and more to answer our favorite question: If Leighton Meester were a stock, would you buy, sell, or hold?

Amy Smart Cast in Showtime's 'Shameless'

'Shameless' already has its share of feisty females, but the Showtime drama is about to get one more.

Amy Smart ('Crank,' 'Smith') will appear in the final two episodes of the show's first season as Jasmine, a new friend of Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum). Fiona is the oldest sibling in the large Gallagher family, which is headed by the frequently inebriated Frank (William H. Macy). Despite taking on much of the responsibility for caring for her siblings, Fiona also has an active social life and her new friend Jasmine wants to be part of it.

Jasmine, according to Showtime, is someone Fiona knows from the neighborhood, but she's older than Fiona (in this recent interview, Rossum said Fiona's around 21). Jasmine has a daughter who is in the same class at school as Fiona's little sister, Debbie. Fiona renews her acquaintance with Jasmine when she goes to school to help the mothers decorate for a party. "Jasmine is a little bit pushy and sexy and is a little aggressive about wanting to be friends with Fiona," according to the network's character description.

'Shameless,' which premiered Jan. 9, is doing relatively well in its debut season. TV By the Numbers says ratings for the show are on the upswing, and according to the network, the drama is Showtime's best-performing freshman drama in seven years. Sunday's episode brought in 1.45 million total viewers in two airings.

Nikki Blonsky Okay Being Typecast In Fat Roles

Nikki Blonsky, famous for her role in 2007’s Hairspray, says she’s okay being typecast as the overweight female character.

“I honestly think Hollywood is getting real. They’re saying ‘hey this is what a lot of America looks like,’ a lot of America doesn’t wear a size 2,’” Blonsky told ShowbizSpy.com.

Along with her work in Hairspray, the 22-year-old actress is also famous for her role on the ABC show Huge, which centered around a group of overweight teens at weight loss camp.

Willow Smith For Teen Vogue

Singer Willow Smith is featured in the current issue of Teen Vogue Magazine where she talks about her burgeoning career, her family life, how her parents inspired her to get into music and fame.

The singer who lists Dolce & Gabbana as one of her favourite designers and is set to join Justin Bieber on his European tour this month says the Baby singer is like her big brother and that she doesn’t have a crush on him like all the girls seem to.

On her style: “I wear anything I feel like. If I want to put on a pair of Converse with a pencil stuck through them, I will. [Dolce & Gabbana’s] designs are really cool.”

On her hit Whip My Hair and its positive message: “When I first put ['Whip My Hair'] out, everyone was like, ‘Willow, Willow, I love your song!’ And I was like, ‘Really?’ Whipping your hair means not being afraid to be yourself. If people don’t like you, then bunck them, you know?”

Even the Rain Trailer: Gael García Bernal Gets Politicized

In Even the Rain, Gael García Bernal plays a filmmaker making a movie in Bolivia about Christopher Columbus's colonization of the New World (think of something in the spirit of Werner Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God). He's in Bolivia because, "You can negotiate things here. Hotels, transports, catering." So Bernal's character is making a movie about exploitation, by doing some exploiting of his own — an irony that becomes increasingly apparent as the indigenous population in the village where he's filming begin to revolt against the government for raising the price of water. In one scene, Bernal chastises an official, saying he thinks the protesters "demands are reasonable. If someone earns $2 a day, he can't pay a 300 percent increase in the price of water." The official replies, "That's what I'm told you pay the extras." Burn. In the words of the trailer, "500 years [after the conquest] ... not that much has changed." As the violence increases, Bernal's character is forced to sort out his own politics — not just his stated beliefs, which have always been anticolonialist, but his lived ones as well. The movie is diving into some big questions — imperialism, colonialism, Western entitlement, and whether moviemaking itself is inherently exploitative, among others — but it's hard to tell if it will ultimately address them in a way that's enlightening or patronizing. In other words, this is a trailer that does its job: We're going to have to see the movie to find out.


womynist icon to join NY housewives?

 Yesterday, we learned that Andy Cohen will be taking us on another mind-numbing anthropological journey: The Real Housewives of Miami. But in turn, Real Housewives of New York, set to premiere this month, was suddenly pushed back.

Initial reports from the New York Post said, "The season is filled with gold ... but production just wrapped, so Bravo thought it best to give editors time." We wanted to believe that, but today the same paper is singing a new tune: "Producers suddenly scrapped the new season because it lacked explosive catfight-filled drama."

There is hope, however: "Insiders said one option to up the drama might be to bring Beverly Hills housewife Camille Grammer to New York, the location of her divorce with Kelsey. [Jill] Zarin has invited her to hang out with the Housewives." Compared to what we've been dragged through in other cities, the New York Housewives almost seem normal now. Grammer, the Beverly Hills lightning rod, on the other hand, is a deluded former (soft-core) porn star going through a difficult and very public divorce. Basically, she's the best thing to happen to the Housewives franchise in a while, and we'd welcome her to this city


this would be brilliant imo, she has been spending quite a lot of time in new york.. hmm. i've been waiting for a housewives type crossover for awhile! queen camille would be perfect to start off the trend.

Natalie Portman: 'I'm an Old Hag'


Oscar favorite Natalie Portman feels like an "old hag" because she's been working as an actress for almost 20 years.

The "Black Swan" star kickstarted her career as a child model, before working on Broadway and landing her first film role in controversial 1994 movie "The Professional" when she was just 12 years old.

After working tirelessly for the last two decades, Portman has been lauded for her role as a deranged dancer in the ballet thriller, winning several honors and becoming favorite to walk away with the Best Actress Academy Award later this month.

But Portman admits she's struggling to cope with all the sudden acclaim because she's been around for so long.

She tells the Los Angeles Times, "I made my first movie when I was 11. I'm an old hag. I guess it's pretty common with actors, to be doing this for 18 years, but it's extreme. I feel like I'm on another planet or something right now. It's not quite sinking in. I feel really lucky. It's something that's completely wonderful, and I have a very definite goal I'm working toward with that."

Gisele Bundchen Delcares Sunscreen to Be 'Poison'

Brazillian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has found herself at the center of controversy, after declaring that sunscreen is "poison."Bundchen, speaking at the launch of her own organic skin care line, said "I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic."

Instead, Bundchen says the best way to avoid harmful rays to only go out in the sun before 8 am, thereby avoiding the most harmful rays.Skin cancer experts, however, say differently. "Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer," said Dolival Loao, head of dermatology at Brazil's National Cancer Institute. "This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion."

Bundchen seems to have changed her attitude toward certain sunscreens. In the past, she starred in several advertising campaigns for Nivea Sun.

Sean Avery, Gay Support System

Sean Avery X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM

New York Rangers forward Sean Avery has a message for gay hockey players who are scared to come out: Pick up the phone and call him.

Avery, who is known to be one of the sporting world's more liberal athletes, says he'd be more than happy to serve as a support system for a gay player.

"If there's a kid in Canada or wherever, who is playing and really loves the game and wants to keep playing but he's worried about coming out, I'd tell him to pick up the phone and call [NHLPA executive director] Donald Fehr and tell him to book me a [plane] ticket," he told the Toronto Sun. "I'll stand beside him in the dressing room while he tells his teammates he is gay. Maybe if Sean Avery is there, they would have less of a problem with it."

Avery, who lived in West Hollywood when he played for the Los Angeles Kings and now lives in Chelsea, says he doesn't see the big deal about having an openly gay athlete in professional sports.

He says there are "probably a few gay players in the NHL, but I don't know if somebody has the courage [to come out]."

Last month Avery stripped for designer Marc Jacobs to promote skin cancer awareness. He also made headlines in 2008 when he became an intern for Vogue magazine.

National Children's Museum partners with 'Sesame Street'

The superstars of the young set, the characters from "Sesame Street," have agreed to be creative tenants with the National Children's Museum.

The new partnership between the museum, which is scheduled to open in 2013 at National Harbor, and Sesame Workshop, the 41-year-old nonprofit that unleashed Big Bird and Bert and Ernie on the world, was announced Thursday.

Elmo, the cuddly red Muppet, represented the gang and upstaged the important people endorsing the idea. Somehow Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Rep. James P. Moran (D-Va.) knew not to try to compete.

MTV Drops Lauren Conrad's New Reality Show

Last fall, MTV announced that it was reuniting with Lauren Conrad, star of the network’s Laguna Beach and The Hills, for another reality series focused on the young star’s burgeoning fashion line. But EW has EXCLUSIVELY learned why the Conrad series has been passed on by the network. “We decided not to go ahead with the show,” says David Janollari, EVP, Head of Programming for MTV. “She did do a pilot. There were talks about whether we could somehow manage to put together a special based on that footage but that’s also a big question mark based on her interest in that and the finances. We love her! We would love her on our network!” The proposed series was not a glossy reality soap like The Hills but much more documentary style. It was also noticeably absent from MTV’s Upfront this week. Says Janollari, “It was a great attempt but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now.” (The news of Conrad’s show not moving forward was first reported by blogger Rob Owen.)

Lauren Conrad has sent EW a statement regarding MTV’s decision: “We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life. We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”


Michael Urie in Interview Magazine

After winning the Pulitzer Prize, back-to-back Tony awards for Best Play, a record-breaking number of Emmys for the HBO adaptation, and being canonized as a text taught in high schools and colleges across the globe, Tony Kushner's Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes returned to New York City last fall for the first time since it left Broadway over fifteen years ago. Directed by Michael Greif (of Rent and Next to Normal), the politically charged, sweeping epic has been selling out the intimate Peter Norton Space, in which both parts of the seven-hour play have been performed in repertory, since September. The production has now been extended three times—meaning a cast change is in order.

Lea Michele: Madonna would be great on Glee

Lea Michele: Madonna would be great on Glee

Lea Michele thinks Madonna would play a great sex education teacher on Glee.

The actress-and-singer is now well known for her performances as Rachel Berry in the popular US series.
She is a massive fan of the veteran singer, and has spent hours dreaming of the perfect role on the programme for her.
'That [a cameo] would be great – she would be amazing! I think she could be the health teacher or something. Maybe the sex education teacher!' Lea told new! Magazine.
The 24-year-old admits she has never met a number of her heroes, despite the fact that many of them have admitted to loving Glee. Yet Lea isn’t going to rush into it as she feels it could be disastrous for her.
'I haven’t [come face-to-face with them], but I’ve thoroughly embarrassed myself in front of my idols that I have met, so I’m fine with keeping them far away,' she laughed.

Zac seen with Teresa Palmer, Zanessa fans harrass V's little sister

Last night, Movieline attended the first press screening of Take Me Home Tonight, the upcoming 80’s-themed rom-com featuring Topher Grace, Anna Faris and Teresa Palmer — the latter of whom arrived at the film’s afterparty with a famous date whose attendance might have sparked a minor cultural meltdown.

Zac Efron mingled with Palmer and the rest of Relativity Media’s guests following the screening, where the cheerful Aussie-born actress could barely contain her excitement. A little less excited was Efron, whom I briefly caught up with to talk about the movie. He confessed not having seen it yet but looking forward to it. Maybe he was there representing for Relativity, then, for a forthcoming project? Nope. “I’m just here for my friends,” he said. “And I always have fun at these kinds of events.”

About 10 minutes later he and Palmer left the party — together. And this less than a month after he and fellow Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens were said to have revived their relationship! A related tweet from E! correspondent Cristina Gibson — “Zac Efron and Teresa Palmer? Hear they’re together at a screening right now…interesting” — sparked panic on Twitter, with Efron and Hudgens fans alike railing against the heartthrob. “the zanessa fans will be hurt when they find out this time the reports are true zac is cheating on vanessa and making her believe he is not,” wrote one obsessive, with more to come no doubt. Anyway! This happened.

Hollywood's dumbest casting choices

When reports came that cross-dressing comedian Tyler Perry, best known for his Madea character and films, would be stepping into Morgan Freeman's ("Kiss the Girls," "Along Came a Spider") shoes as author James Patterson's badass D.C. homicide detective Alex Cross in the film "I, Alex Cross," people were left stunned.

After all, it was thought to be a done-deal that Idris Elba, the hulking star of "The Wire," would be playing Cross; and Perry, for all his comedic talents, is no Idris Elba.

The news got us thinking of other actors who were miscast as famous literary characters in films.

Queen Elizabeth "moved" by The King's Speech

So what's The Queen's Review of 'The King's Speech'?

Two royal thumbs up.

Queen Elizabeth II of England, depicted as the young daughter of King George VI (played by Colin Firth) in the Oscar-nominated film 'The King's Speech,' received a screening about her father's struggle with public speaking and his eventual triumph in inspiring his nation in the face of a German invasion. According to producers The Weinsten Company, she was "moved" by the movie.

The film was only made following the death of her mother, The Queen Mum, who is played by Helena Bonham Carter in the film. She asked writer David Seidel to refrain from committing his screenplay to film until her passing, as it was too painful for her to watch.

Arcade Fire "are not good people"

A director who made Arcade Fire's 2008 documentary has launched a scathing attack on the band, insisting the rockers are "not good people" and branding their managers "disgusting" and "awful".

Filmmaker Vincent Moon spent time with the Canadian group, fronted by Win Butler, while working on their behind-the-scenes movie Miroir Noir, which documented the making of their 2007 album Neon Bible and a tour, and he has now spoken out about his experiences on set.

Moon has criticised the musicians and the way they conduct their business, and he reserves particularly harsh words for the band's representatives.

He tells Eye Weekly, "They're not good people, that's it. And I don't mean the whole band - I mean the leaders of the band and their management.

"What I hate about the band now is that people call them an indie band and they're not an indie band, they are a mainstream band.

The way they deal with their business is really disgusting for me. The way they deal with things is awful. Their management are awful, awful people, and I know what I'm talking about. I have some really terrible stories with them".

Snooki Spills Her Sex Secrets

The girls of Jersey Shore went on field trip to a sex shop on Thursday's sexy episode of the MTV smash-hit, in which Snooki came out with the candid admission she once spent a whole day -- errrr -- pleasuring herself.

The bombshell came out when Snooki, JWOWW and Deena were going to the pharmacy, and Deena said she can't understand why girls won't cop to the deed, adding she thinks "it's healthy."

Snooki agreed with Deena, telling her, "You work your muscles -- remember I did it all day once and couldn't move?

"Everytime we have a conversation, its’ some fucked up conversation,” Snooki joked. “We have no shame in discussing our sex life.”

Later on, the girls hit up a sex shop, where we got to see JWOWW sporting leather hot pants, while Snooki donned a sexy baseball outfit.

"Batter up, bitches!" she said.

Cher Lloyd seems to have made a lasting impression Stateside but for all the wrong reasons.

Lloyd may have been hanging out with the likes of Lil Wayne, Will.I.Am and Perez Hilton in the US, but some people think the teenager has a long way to go before she makes it as a superstar over the pond.

According to Heat magazine, The X Factor star has been heavily criticised in America for the way she looks, with some sources claiming that she is "trashy" and "low-rent."

Life & Style's senior news reporter Juliet Izon, has weighed in on the issue of Miss. Lloyd's image, telling Heat: "Lord, girlfriend needs a stylist! With her style, Cher would send the American paparazzi running."

"Her clothing choices are low-rent. There's no chance a US audience will have anything to do with her, unless she gets her teeth fixed, stops wearing her hair like a wannabe Rihanna and gets a stylist to burn her current wardrobe and replace it."

Izon added: "No one knows her in America so if she wants to make a splash, she needs to act and look like a celebrity. That means ditching her trashy look and not waltzing around like she is an A-lister."

Despite the US backlash, a friend of the 17-year old rapper has insisted that Cher is "adamant" to maintain her current style, even if it means jeopardising her career.

The pal explained to the mag: "Cher is adamant that she'll stick with her unique style and character, which has caused issues."

They continued: "Her style is very niche. She's worked hard, but she wants to be bigger than Leona Lewis and she wants it quick. Because she's so young, it could all end in tears."

Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.

Three Sisters Star Maggie Gyllenhaal on the Pressures of Acting in Front of Loved Ones

After scoring an Oscar nomination for Crazy Heart and starring in the third highest grossing film of all time (The Dark Knight), seeing a few familiar faces in the audience of an intimate off-Broadway theater should be no trouble for Three Sisters’ Maggie Gyllenhaal, right? Not so the actress tells Broadway.com.

Opening nights are always sort of funny because everyone you love and know is always there, but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier,” Gyllenhaal said on opening night of the Classic Stage Company production of the Chekhov drama. “Sometimes it’s even harder to show what’s really in your heart in front of people you love. I would actually prefer to always perform in front of people I don’t know.”

Luckily for Gyllenhaal she doesn't have to worry about husband Peter Sarsgaard watching her from the audience...instead he’s right on stage with her. Sarsgaard agrees with his wife’s sentiments: “Your relatives tend to laugh before anything is even funny,” he cracked.

During regular performances, in which Gyllenhaal doesn’t know as many audience members, she’s just thrilled to perform works of Anton Chekhov. “It’s so still true about the way human beings behave,” she says of the classic author’s writing. “I don’t know if I’ve every played anyone that I’ve related to more than [middle Prozorova daughter] Masha,” she says of her character.

And yes, one handsome, familiar face was in the house that night, Gyllenhaal’s heartthrob brother, Jake. We're pretty sure he gave his sis a thumbs-up.

New low at the 'Shore': A proctologist & whale sperm

Snooki got a wake up call when new guy Jeff told her about his dating history on 'Jersey Shore.'

Ronnie and Sammi relapsed into turmoil on Thursday night's "Jersey Shore," and Vinny got philosophical as a result: "Hell must be just like this," he mused of the shore house, which steadily crumbled into a heap of drama over the course of the hour.

"Hell" seems an apt description of the Ron/Sam mess, in any case. They start the episode all smiles and hugs, but then the hiccups start. First, Ronnie gets so drunk at Karma that he ends up with blood in his stool the next morning. Sammi is displeased. In any case, the couple rebounds nicely by bonding over the shame of Ronnie's anal exam, where a nice Seaside doctor nonchalantly roots around Ron-Ron's bum for a few minutes before telling the big guy to lay off the sauce. Heh.Collapse )

That's basically it. also no1curr.


Portrait Magazine: 2010- 2011 Top 10 Young TV Ships

The annual Top 10 Young TV Ships as voted by YOU is a Portrait Valentine’s Tradition. This year marks our fifth year of the poll and during the voting period, over 58 000 votes were cast for the 59 nominated ships. As usual, voting was intense and we were glued to our seats watching who would make the final 10 during the last days of voting. Were winners from the past two years, Gossip Girl’s Blair and Chuck be able to hold onto their title for a third year running and beat previous reigning champs Nathan and Haley from One Tree Hill? Or were close competitors Puck and Rachel from Glee strong enough to steal their throne? Or was it an entirely brand new ship to the Top 10 that was able to steal both their thunders? Who’s hot? Who’s not? Read on and find out! Remember, this is all in the name of fun and not about who is together, but who you would LOVE to see together, can’t wait to GET together or wish would get BACK together! Welcome to the Portrait 2010-2011 Top Young TV Ships as voted by YOU!

The Vagina Whisperer Chris Pine picks up a cup of coffee to go and chats on his cell phone as he leaves Peet’s Coffee & Tea on Thursday (NOOOO HE'S GONE CORPORATE MY LITTLE PUNK ROCK HEART, SHE MOSHES ANGRILY AT THIS DEVELOPMENT TO THE GERMS CLASSIC WHAT WE DO IS SECRET) (February 3) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old Unstoppable (LIKE HIS DICK) actor is reportedly dating his co-star in the upcoming film This Means War -- Laura Vandervoort. (do you think her fiance, Canadian actor Corey Sevier, is pissed about that or is this some freaky Canadian threesome deal....)

Last week, Chris was seen filming scenes for his new movie, Welcome to Peopleand (source's typo but I'm not fixing it cause if they want me to copy edit their shit i require at least a gift card to In N Out and hug, i don't work for free ok~), alongside Elizabeth Banks during a late night shoot in L.A.

9 Characters Joseph Gordon-Levitt SHOULDN'T Play In Dark Knight Rises

With Joseph Gordon-Levitt now being rumored to join Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises alongside Inception co-star Tom Hardy, it’s fair to wonder just what Nolan is up to with his final Batmovie. For one thing, don’t we already have enough name actors in this movie? And for another, just who will Gordon-Levitt play? Here are some characters I really hope the acclaimed star of 3rd Rock From The Sun doesn’t take on.

Ke$ha is Free Spirit, Clothing Stifles That

Ke$ha has revealed that she enjoys running naked around a park next to her home.

The singer, who recently bought a new house in Nashville, Tennessee, said she likes its secluded location because it gives her privacy.

"There are foxes in my front yard, and it looks like a pirate ship inside, and the pool has laser beams in it," she told Rolling Stone of her new property.

"It's right on the edge of a park, so in the middle of the night I can run around in the wilderness naked."

It was recently reported that images of the star allegedly having sex had leaked online.


I hope no twigs or leaves get in her naughty bits

Followill announced the bad news on Twitter, saying his surgery for a torn arm muscle has forced him into a three-month lay-off.

He tweeted: "Sorry to all the fans in Australia and South Africa. My bum wing needs more time to heal but we'll be back later this year. Sorry again."

The group from Texas, whose hits include Sex on Fire, was due to play seven shows across Australia and two shows in South Africa.

They were due to perform in Cape Town and Johannesburg before heading to Europe.

Organisers Big Concerts said yesterday that fans who had bought tickets "should hold on to" them until new details are released next week "once venue availability can be established".
