Dianna Agron says she's boring- this is true.


Dianna Agron has insisted that she finds her career choices more interesting than her personal life.

Writing on her blog, the Glee star said that she understands the interest fans take in her life but that it has no bearing on her work as an actress.

"I have been getting a lot of questions about things that I don't feel the need to explain or talk about," she wrote.

"Perhaps some of you would rather hear about projects I am working on and so proud to be a part of, not whether or not I'm swapping spit with some guy? Or if I'm painting my house, or washing the car, or having septuplits (sic) with a guy I met in Naples named Luciano," she continued.

"If you want a good story, let's at least make it really rich! Totally understand if there is interest, but I find I am more interesting on screen. Once there, I'm able to live many lives, and travel the world in each new character."

Agron was recently rumored to be engaged to boyfriend Alex Pettyfer, which she later denied.

Kim Kardashian: "I'm on a diet"


Kim Kardashian has revealed that she works hard to maintain her figure.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, the socialite and reality star explained that she restricts her intake of junk food as she will eat too much of it if not careful.

"I'm on a diet. I need to be," she said. "I love to eat - Kit Kats or cookies-and-cream ice cream. I need sugar, like, five times a day."

Kardashian admitted that she changed her eating habits after packing on the pounds while filming her new series Kourtney & Kim Take New York in the city.

"I worked out once. I gained, like, ten pounds," she recalled.

"All the papers were like, 'Kim's pregnant!' I ate the nuts on the street corner, the hot dogs, the street meat. It was not a joke."

Tabatha Coffey Speaks about Near-Death Experience

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In 1992, Tabatha Coffey was looking for more than a chic haircut to enhance her look.

The Tabatha's Salon Takeover star tells Life & Style that she underwent surgery that year to bump her B cup breasts up to a D. During the procedure, she says the doctor nicked an artery which ultimately ruptured four days later. The Australia native, who was in her early 20s at the time, recalls suffering internal bleeding as a result. She says the surgeon corrected the mistake, but that instead of inserting brand new implants, he actually put the old ones back in -- thereby causing an infection. Tabatha cut her losses and removed the breast enhancers, but she still needed to wear a catheter bag for three months before the infection cleared.

A nightmare, right? Well, the 41-year-old Aussie tells Life & Style that she doesn't regret the experience because it taught her a valuable life lesson – you know, other than never, ever use that doctor again. "It was such a great learning experience for me, but it was a hell of a lesson to learn," the It's Not Really About The Hair author says. "I can re-evaluate the fact that those boobs were never going to make me perfect. It was life-changing in the way that I look at things, especially my own body image. It was a good lesson to learn: to accept me as me."

Lady Gaga: Our Lady of Pop


How appropriate—how accurate!—her name is. It is more of a title, really, one she bestowed upon herself mere moments before she became so insanely famous. The Gaga half makes immediate, intuitive sense, an utterance that sounds like an infant’s first word but is, in fact, French and means, essentially, to be utterly enthralled by something—excited to the point of being touched by madness. (That it describes both the pop star and her uniquely obsessed fans makes it even more perfect.) But it is the Lady part of her name that has gone underexplored.

Put aside for a moment that she often appears in public with no pants on, or that she performs part of her show covered in blood, or that she screams like Sam Kinison onstage, or that she says the F-word with metronomic consistency. In person, she is unfailingly polite and surprisingly dignified. She speaks in the clipped, proper diction that is often mistaken for a Madonna-like pretension but is in fact born of twelve years of attending Convent of the Sacred Heart, the oldest private girls’ school in Manhattan, where Gloria Vanderbilt matriculated, an institution known for turning out self-possessed young ladies who speak perfect French and have the vocabularies of William F. Buckley, Jr. Indeed, what surprises me most during the time I spend embedded with the pop star—inside the giant plastic bubble, so to speak—while she is on tour in London and Paris at the end of December is how effortlessly she switches back and forth between “lady” and “gaga.”

‘True Blood’ too draining? Charlaine Harris says Sookie Stackhouse novels must end


Photobucket



Dead Reckoning,” the 12th installment in author Charlaine HarrisSookie Stackhouse mystery series, is set to arrive this May — not long before the hit TV series inspired by the franchise, HBO’s “True Blood,” returns for a fourth season — but the novelist now is looking ahead to the conclusion of her long-running saga.

“Truthfully, the next two books will probably be the last two books in the series,” Harris said last week. “I still love Sookie, but I’m beginning to want to write something else, and Sookie’s kind of taken over my life. I was able to write other things for the first few years I was involved in Sookie, but then after the start of the television show she took over so much of my time because of my increased publicity obligations that it’s been very hard to write other things, and I really need to do that.”

Why Darren Criss Might be the Next Michael Emerson, and Why That Isn’t a Good Thing for Glee



The unwritten rules for the second season of a hit television series are similar to the ones governing movie sequels: Everything has to be bigger, has to be louder, and has to include at least one major casting addition. In the case of Lost, the second season brought increasingly convoluted stakes (The Hatch! The Others!), some shocking character deaths (Shannon!) and the addition of Michael Emerson to the already bulging cast. What began as a well-received guest role for the veteran New York actor became a three-and-a-half season stay on the devilish island. Emerson’s breakout performance not only forced Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse to shift their narrative, but also cemented him forever in the minds of television watchers as Benjamin Linus.

Hayden Panettiere On the Controversy Surrounding 'The Amanda Knox Story'


Photobucket




Lifetime is slated to premiere "The Amanda Knox Story" later this month, even as Knox's family is taking legal measures to try to prevent its airing because they feel it will hurt the appeal that is currently in the works on the murder trial. Now ETonline talks to Hayden Panettiere, who plays Knox in the film, to get her take on the media frenzy surrounding the project.
"She was so amazingly shocked by [the trailer for the movie]," Knox's stepfather Chris Mellas recently told ABC News. "She said she literally started hyperventilating. She felt like she was going to throw up."

Bristol Palin to Run for Political Office

Photobucket

Bristol Palin has announced her intention to run for political office in the future.

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant told E News that she would "probably" follow in the footsteps of her mother, ex-Alaskan governor Sarah Palin, to become involved in the field "further down the line".

"If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it," she explained.

However, Pop Eater reports that Bristol may pursue politics earlier than expected, with a source telling the website: "Bristol has a new sense of confidence since she did Dancing With The Stars. She has seen her mother's success and believes Washington should have more regular people like her in office making decisions for the country, rather than the elite that currently run DC."

The insider added: "[Bristol] doesn't have a strong political résumé [but] that's what will make her a great congresswoman or even President!"

It was recently suggested that Palin will release her memoirs later this year.

Bob Dylan to perform at the Grammy ceremony alongside Mumford & Sons and the Avett Bros.

The producers of the Grammys want a show for the ages, but they also want a show for all ages — which is why Bob Dylan will be bringing his acoustic guitar to perform this weekend on the same stage as Justin Bieber, Drake and Katy Perry.



The official announcement is expected Thursday that the great bard of rock will sing at the 53rd Grammy Awards — which air Sunday on CBS — marking just his fifth performance on the show despite a recording career that dates back to the Kennedy administration. He’ll perform alongside two rising folk-rock bands whose work draws from the same well: Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers.

Dylan is just three months shy of his 70th birthday, but he may bump into some generational peers backstage — Barbra Streisand is scheduled to sing one of her signature 1970s hits, while Mick Jagger’s participation in a tribute to the late Solomon Burke will result in a bit of history, since the Rolling Stones frontman has never before performed on the Grammy stage.

Keira Knightley Not Part Of David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’



Perhaps this is why the new transparency sucks and why a salient argument can be made for the halcyon days of film development behind closed doors: watching the back and forth progress and decline of David Cronenberg‘s gestating “Cosmpolis” is heartbreaking. First, it’s an A-list project out the door with Colin Farrell, Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti and then it’s a slightly less desireable project with Robert Pattinson and Keira Knightley in the leads instead of Farrell and Cotillard who bailed for a tentpole (”Total Recall”) and a baby, respectively (Cotillard is pregnant, the dream for Playlist suitors is collapsing).

Knightley is part of Cronenberg’s upcoming “A Dangerous Method” co-starring the excellent cast of Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen, so co-signed by them, hell, co-signed by us. But her confirmation in the film was never 100%.  She must have been in some sort of discussion as French financiers Alfama Films jumped the gun and listed Knightley as part of the cast in January and tipped us off to the fact that Cotillard had left.

Perhaps they spoiled the deal entirely because if Knightley was in talks to take the lead female role in the picture, it appears she’s not now.

Lindsay Lohan previously tried to leave with diamond earring?



LOS ANGELES -- Lindsay Lohan was previously stopped from taking a diamond earring from the jewelry store that accused her of stealing a $2,500 necklace, TMZ reported Thursday.

A police report into Lohan's alleged theft said that a clerk stopped her from leaving Kamofie & Company on Jan. 18 because she was wearing a single white gold diamond earring, four days before the necklace went missing.

Lohan, 24, tried on the earrings but only took one off before she tried to leave the store -- and left her own, more expensive earrings on store's counter, TMZ said.

"Ms. Lohan gathered her things and started to leave the jewelry store without making a purchase. Ms. Lohan's hair was flipped to one side, covering the diamond earring," the police report said. "[The clerk] stopped her and reminded Ms. Lohan she was still wearing the earring. Ms. Lohan laughed, admitted to her mistake and removed the earring from her ear and returned it to [the clerk]."

Josh Duhamel all tuxedoed-out



A tuxedoed-out Josh Duhamel is spotted on the set of New Year’s Eve in Brooklyn yesterday (Feb. 9). For those of you keeping score at home, Duhamel, Sofia Vergara, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Abigail Breslin, and Jon Bon Jovi have all been spotted on set in the past week (check out the pics here).

In other Josh news, he won’t be replacing Regis Philbin on Live! With Regis and Kelly. Regis announced earlier this year that this would be his last season on the venerable morning program, and naturally the internet has been buzzing ever since. But alas, even though I would love to see him opposite Kelly Ripa, Josh’s rep told The Hollywood Reporter that “there is no truth” to the rumors of him stepping in.

Inside the Life: Rufus Wainwright & Jake Shears


Photographer Tim Hailand chats up two of his muses, Musicians Jake Shears and Rufus Wainwright, about their upcoming projects and starring in his One Day in the Life series.


(An excerpt from Hailand’s book with Shears; the cover of One Day in the Life of Rufus Wainright.)
The friends of celebrities get a rare peek into a mostly unseen world, filled with glamour and excitement. But these friends are also privy to the mundane and the sad.

Leona Lewis has a new look



Leona Lewis' shocking transformation this week has been such that fans of the star have speculated over whether she has succumbed to the pressures of Hollywood, and gone under the knife.

First she was barely recognisable as she showcased her new style at Justin Bieber's film premiere.

And last night Leona turned up to a pre-Grammys party in Los Angeles, again, looking more like Barbie doll than the curly-haired girl from East London.

At the 2nd Annual Black Women in Music Event at the Playhouse in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old wore another unusual creation of similar style to her 'hot lips' outfit the day before.

The former X Factor winner has turned her hand to designing of late, according to her publicist, and is also creating her outfit for the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Camille Grammer: Officially Real Single Girl of Beverly Hills



This is usually the time when we say "Kelsey Grammer ... officially single" -- but since he's planning on marrying his new girlfriend by the end of the month ... it's just a quick time-out.

TMZ has learned Kelsey and Camille Grammer's divorce was finalized moments ago -- after a judge in L.A. County Superior Court signed the divorce decree.

As we previously reported, Kelsey wanted a quickie divorce so he could marry his girlfriend Kayte Walsh. We're told Kelsey and Camille will work out their property settlement issues at a later date.

In order to get the divorce, Kelsey had to post $2.3 million, which protects Camille's pension rights against any new spouse.

Nene Leakes Is Beefing With Star Jones



When have you ever known loud obnoxious “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Nene Leakes to be speechless? Well, she hit up “The Wendy Williams Show’ yesterday and when asked how she feels about Star Jones, it took a lot for her to muster up the words “I’m not feeling the bish”.

How do you feel about Star Jones?
I’m not feeling Star Jones, I’m sorry. I gave her a chance when I got there, I did but Star…I’m just gonna tell you….[pause]

Why didn’t you get along?
Star is a trip. She’s very special ….she’s special. No seriously, I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.

Well that says it all.




The two ladies are apart of the upcoming season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” Obviously, they bumped heads with each other (doesn’t Nene bump heads with everyone???), which means there’s going to be drama on the show. Are we really surprised? I think not.

Trump/Voldemort 2012

Trump 'seriously thinking' about presidential run



Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he is seriously thinking about running for president but won't make a final decision until summer.

Appearing on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" Wednesday night, Trump said the United States is faring poorly and has lost the respect of the world.

"I am seriously thinking about it. I won't make a decision till June," he said. "But I will make a decision and it may surprise people frankly, but I will make a decision sometime prior to June."

"I love this country. I hate what's happened to this country," he added. "We're a laughingstock throughout the world. We're not respected."

The multi-billionaire tycoon said that if elected, he would reassess American foreign policy, especially its relationship with China whom he considers "the enemy."

"The first thing I would do is announce very strongly that we're going to tax Chinese products -- 25% tax on all Chinese products. They will come to the table immediately and stop manipulating their currency which they're doing," he said.

"I see them as the enemy," he said. "They want to take over this country economically. They are not really out-competing. They are cheating. And we have people who don't know what to do, because we have the wrong people in office."

He also had harsh words for OPEC.

"Worse than China is OPEC," he said. "They wouldn't be there except for us. Twelve men sit around the table. They set the price of fuel. They set the price of $3.50 for your car right now, a gallon. Guess what that's going to be? 5, 6 and $7 very soon. Of course, there's nobody here that calls them and says, 'Fellows, you better not do it. "

Trump is worth an estimated $2 billion, according to Forbes magazine. Much of his success came in New York City's real estate market, but he has also been the star of a TV series called "The Apprentice" where he is reportedly paid $3 million per episode.

The Style Network has given a six-episode order to Tia & Tamera Take 2, a docu-series about the current lives of the former child stars, with Tia going through her first pregnancy and Tamera planning her wedding. The series, which will premiere in late summer, stems from the Tia & Tamera Take 2 reality special the network aired in July.

"The feedback from their special on Style last year was incredibly positive and showed us how much our viewers identify with these women, their humor and optimistic outlook on life and their daily journey to balance successful professional pursuits with their equally important personal and social lives,” said Style president Salaam Coleman Smith.

Amber Heard For Red Sonja?

RED SONJA, previously a Rose McGowan/Robert Rodriguez vehicle has gotten a new director at the helm--Simon West--and his front runner for the leading lady is Amber Heard.

From EmpireOnline.com:
Sonja, lest we forget, is sort of a Robert E Howard creation, but actually has more to do with Roy Thomas' Conan comics for Marvel. She was previously embodied onscreen by Brigitte Nielsen in 1985, with Arnold Schwarzenegger also on-hand as the all-but Conan Prince Kalidor.

Twenty-odd years later, Sonja reared her crimson head again, in a projected film that was to star Rose McGowan, with Robert Rodriguez producing and Doug Aarniokoski (Highlander: Endgame) behind the camera. Teaser artwork was produced showing McGowan in costume, but the rest was ultimately silence, and as of last spring, the whole shebang had basically been scrapped and started again with a new team.

Ke$ha Spends A Lot of Money on Glitter



It’s hard to tell sometimes if Ke$ha is kidding. On the one hand, who among us isn’t tired of hearing things like, “Paris Hilton/ Lindsay Lohan/Britney Spears/Tara Reid/etc. is so much smarter than people give her credit for”? Because by now it’s pretty obvious that that’s hardly ever the case. Their tabloid exploits aren’t a postmodern prank on male expectations. There is no sniggering genius behind the curtain. They’re just idiots. But on the other hand, unlike her bleach-blonde peers, Ke$ha occasionally gives hints that she might actually be in on the joke. She’s compared her first album, the mega-smash Animal, with the Beastie Boys’ 1986 debut Licensed to Ill. The two records definitely share some musical DNA, with their frathouse celebrations of partying, booze, and casual sex. But then again, the Beastie Boys went on to make mature and ground-breaking albums like Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head, while Ke$ha’s latest, the EP Cannibal, offers more of the same dry-heaving, dry-humping antics.

Charlie Sheen's wife finally granted freedom



A Los Angeles judge has granted Charlie Sheen and his wife Brooke a divorce, but it will be a few months before the two are legally single.

Court records show the pair’s divorce was granted on Thursday in Los Angeles, but they won’t be officially divorced until May 2.

The actor and his wife each filed for divorce the same day in November, but Charlie Sheen’s petition was used by the court. Divorces in California can only become official once six months have passed.

The “Two and a Half Men” star and Brooke Sheen were married in May 2008 and split on Christmas Day 2009, the same day the actor was accused of domestic violence against his then-wife.

The judgment was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.

Jennifer Hudson still trying to make her mom proud

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In a tearful interview, singer and actress Jennifer Hudson said she's still trying to make her mother proud, and that's what has kept her going since her mother and two other family members were murdered.

Hudson, who has repeatedly declined to talk publicly about the killings, didn't directly address the details of the October 2008 slayings in Chicago of her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. But in an interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that was broadcast Thursday, she discussed the source of the drive that quickly got her back on stage and in the recording studio just months after the tragedy.

"I try to do everything to say, 'OK, will my mother like this? Will she be pleased? Will she be proud of that? How do I know she's happy and she's smiling down at me from heaven?'" Hudson said. "And that's what I try to go by and walk by."

Shedding tears, Hudson said she could hear the voices of her brother and mother telling her to "knock it off," stop crying and keep going.

In October 2008, the bodies of her mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were found in the family's Chicago home.

The body of her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found days later in a sport utility vehicle about 10 miles away. All three had been shot.

Nicki Minaj Has "Toned Down" Her Sexy Image

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Nicki Minaj has claimed that she has "toned down" her sexy image despite protests from her record label, Young Money.

Speaking to NME, the Moment 4 Life rapper revealed that she wanted to take on a less saucy character, because she wanted to be know for her music and not just her looks.

The 26-year old explained: "If you listen to my album, compared to my early mixtapes, a lot has changed. I mean, I really toned down the sexual stuff."

She continued: "There was no need for me to do it. I feel like in the past females have kinda relied on that because they feel like that’s all they have to offer."

As for making the change against Young Money's wishes, the star - who signed with Lil Wayne's label in 2009 - added: "I was around people who were telling me, 'This is what you should be doing'."

"When you're young and impressionable you feel like 'Okay, you know best'."

Exclusive Look at Drake Bell All Grown Up



Drake Bell is known for about twelve thousand different things, most notably his starring role in Nickelodeon's hit "Drake & Josh." Today, however, officially marks his move from teen star to "damn that boy is all grown up and making music while looking fiiiiine" adult-dom.

After co-starring with The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey in 2001's Chasing Destiny," Drake began to teach himself how to play guitar, the very one Roger just happened to give him. Drake went on to pen tracks for his show as well as other Nickelodeon hits "Zoey 101" and iCarly." Afterward he signed with Universal Records and released a slew of singles that packaged him as some weird pop(ish) act.

Bored yet? Yea me too, but wait for it.

Wavy-hand flash forward to today, when I was offered an exclusive snippet paired with a smolderingly wet video of Drake Bell's new single "Terrific" shot by Tyler Shields. Firstly, it ain't no Nickelodeon bull-shiz and secondly the track that it features -- which Drake wrote and produced himself -- is damn good. Take a watch/listen/deep breath below.

Weezer’s State Farm Jingle Is Really, Really Not Bad



You will, most likely, have a two-part reaction to the video, above, of Weezer in the studio recording a jingle for State Farm. Part 1: “Ah, what the hell, Weezer? It's like you're sitting at home actively thinking of ways to make yourselves seem lamer. Would it have killed you to at least write a song for a commercial for something awesome, like vodka or blunt wraps or something?” Part 2: “Wait, hold on a second — this song is amazing.” And it is now that second part that Vulture would very much like you to focus on.

Yes, it's incredibly odd that Weezer has chosen the occasion of a car-insurance-company jingle to momentarily recapture a sound that a vocal subset of their fan base has long clamored for (this basically sounds like a Pinkerton B-side, specifically “Getting Up and Leaving”). But isn't the more important takeaway here the fact that Rivers Cuomo, who long ago evolved into a prolific, slick-hit-writing mercenary, is able to so convincingly ape his former self? Maybe, next time, he'll actually do it on a Weezer album! Okay, sing along now: “Whenever you're driving / and wherever you're bound / on freeways and byways / the whole country round / you'll feel better knowing / any time, any where / that like a good neighbor / State Farm is there.”

Vanessa Hudgens Says Michael Caine Flirted With Her



Vanessa Hudgens has revealed that Sir Michael Caine flirted with her during the filming of the sequel to Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

The 22-year-old actress explained that she was fine with him 'hitting on her' because he is so talented.

She told Details: "Not only is he uh-mazingly, stupidly talented, but he still kind of hits on me. All the time. If it was anybody else, I'd be like, 'Who the hell do you think you are?' But because it's Michael Caine, I'm like, 'Sock it to me more, baby, come on!'"

Parts of the movie were filmed in Hawaii where the star explained that Caine took every opportunity to tease her.

She said: "Throughout this whole movie we're trudging through the jungle. So, of course, we're sweating. I was spraying Evian bottles on my chest and my arms and my forehead, but mostly my chest. But your boobs don't really sweat, cleavage doesn't sweat.

"So it's kind of funny. But Michael's always telling the make-up artists that he'll take over and do it. I. Frickin'. Love. Him."

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is scheduled for a 2012 release.

I know I may get some flack for posting this, but oh well get over it.

There are rumors that President Mubarak is going to make a speech soon in Egypt announcing he will be stepping down following days of incredible protests the likes of which have never been seen.

ONTD usually focuses on petty things and is cynical but at this moment we need to shift our focus to Egypt and this important moment in history. This would have an effect on the entire middle east, the people there, the war, the money, the oil, the trade. What President Mubarak does will affect all of us in one way or another and we need to be aware.

Pay attention, this is your world too.

Stephenie Meyer's THE HOST has its director.


While Andrew Niccol has worked closely with Stephenie Meyer on the script, and was in line to direct, he’s now busy with his sci-fi thriller “Now” and the task of directing an adapting of the “Twilight” author’s non-Bella-and-Edward-and-Jacob related book “The Host” has fallen to another.

Variety reports that Susanna White, director of episodes of HBO’s “Generation Kill” and “Nanny McPhee Returns,” has signed on to direct the film. Collapse )

I read this book. I can't remember why I didn't like it because I thought it had potential but Stephenie Meyers can't write women. I hope Andrew Niccol did something interesting with it because I like the idea that this film could make bank with a female lead, yanno?

Most Unappreciated Starkid Talks Chi-Town, Youtube & Glee Ruining our Chance at AVPT...or Maybe Not



When Team StarKid debuted “A Very Potter Musical” at University of Michigan—with music co-written by and starring Darren Criss, the love interest of Kurt on “Glee”—and then posted it on YouTube for family and friends, they had no idea it would lead to 50 million views, an equally famous sequel, a smash-hit soundtrack—and now, the world premiere blast-off of their first fully staged production, “Starship.” The entire run of this sci-fi musical about an insect who attempts to save the world sold out as soon as tickets went on sale. Check out the trailer:

A Michigan native who moved to Chicago last September after two post-college years in L.A., Brian Holden, 25, co-wrote both “Potter” shows and StarKid’s coming-of-age musical, “Me and My Dick.” Holden now appears in "Starship," which he also had a hand in writing. We called him to catch up.

KSTEW FOR QE2 OBVS




Former child star Dakota Fanning is to play Princess Margaret in a new film exploring her teenage years with her sister, the Queen.

Inspired by real-life events, Girls' Night Out will be filmed later this year, Variety reports. It concerns a weekend in which the two royals were allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate the end of the second world war alongside the rest of the country in 1945.

Fanning will take the role of Margaret, with an as yet unnamed actor playing Elizabeth. The director is Michael Hoffman, who filmed 2009 Tolstoy biopic The Last Station and recently unveiled Gambit, a crime caper remake written by the Coen brothers due to arrive next year.

Elizabeth and Margaret appeared on screen earlier this year as young girls in the Oscar-nominated British film The King's Speech, which focuses on the efforts of their father, King George VI, to overcome a stammer. Hoffman directed Helen Mirren – who played a septuagenarian Elizabeth in The Queen – in The Last Station.

Girls' Night Out is being produced by Ecosse Films, which specialises in movies based on real-life figures. The company's Becoming Jane, from 2007, starred Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen, while last year's Nowhere Boy featured Aaron Johnson as the young John Lennon. The new film will be written by Trevor De Silva.

Princess Margaret died in 2002 at the age of 71. At the time of the events of Girls' Night Out, she would have been 15 and Elizabeth 19.

January Jones is perfect

'Paparazzi make me feel safe'


January Jones has professed that being followed by the paparazzi makes her feel more secure. In an interview with USA Today, the Mad Men actress admitted that she feels a sense of comfort knowing that she is always being watched.

"They wait down the street on either end to see which way I'm going to go… The weird thing about it is, it kind of makes me feel safe," she said. Jones further explained that being trailed by the press also helps to ease her fear of living alone. The star added: "I live alone, and I feel like they're always there, they're always watching. If someone were to come in and rob me - there's photographers. It's like the best security system ever… Maybe I'm that pathetic at this point. But it's a constant presence."

Best Television Kisses Mashup!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought it best to celebrate the occasion by getting everyone in the mood for love!

And what better way to do that than to watch a montage of some of the greatest kisses in television history? These kisses broke the "will they, or won't they?" tension between some of our favorite on-screen couples, challenged the censorship of the time, and quite simply, are just plain hot!

Warning: This montage may cause an uncontrollable urge to make out, so be sure to snuggle up and watch with your special someone (if you have one!) And if not, just close your eyes and fantasize about kissing Mulder yourself!

Blind Item: Gay Character Not So Gay After All?

Hosted by imgur.com

Here’s a blind item that I’ll wager — ba-dum-bump — you never saw coming: An imminent episode of a hit series will find a popular gay character wondering whether he might actually be — gasp — bi!

The question of sexual disorientation arises after the confirmed bachelor has an encounter with a pivotal member of the opposite gender. (A close encounter, I’d imagine!) Afterwards, he’s forced to consider the possibility that he swings both ways.

The curve ball is sure to spark controversy, as well as perhaps a little disappointment. But on the flip side, at least the show will be giving hope to the hetero female viewers who’ve long wished the character played for their team.

But the hope may be fleeting. I’m told by the episode’s end, there will be some resolution. I just don’t know yet, er, which way it’ll go.

So… guesses? The message board below is all yours!

TNT's Dallas Adds Jesse Metcalfe & Some Other Person

US WEEKLY: Sarah Palin Defends Christina Aguilera!



Oopsies...our bad!
 

On Wednesday, along with several other media outlets, UsMagazine.com erroneously published a story attributing quotes to Sarah Palin; in a supposed radio interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, the former Republican Vice Presidential nominee was quoted bashing Christina Aguilera's botched rendition of the National Anthem at Sunday's Super Bowl.
 

In response, Palin, 46, set the record straight to UsMagazine.com on Thursday. "I had no interview with Sean [Hannity] and I have never bashed Christina," Alaska's former governor tells Us.
 

"In fact," Palin adds, "I've defended her by telling folks to back off the criticism of her mistake." (Aguilera, 30, famously flubbed the lyrics to the patriotic song while performing at Cowboys Stadium.)
 

Shortly after Thursday's story was published, Us learned that the Palin-Hannity interview never took place, and that the quotes were the invention of a website. We sincerely regret and apologize for the error.
 

Palin continued of the false report: "I was telling my kids right after her national anthem issue blew up that people needed to lay off her mistake. And then to read to that I condemned her?"

Lady GaGa: "I am really f**king tired"

Photobucket

Lady GaGa has revealed that she is "f**king tired" after working non-stop the last few years.

The singer, who has spent the last three years touring and recording music without a break, admitted that she feels "numb" from her hectic work schedule, but plans to continue until she feels ready to slow down.

"Let’s call a spade a spade here,” she told Vogue. “I am really f**king tired. I am at that last mile of the marathon when your fingers and your toes are numb and you can’t feel your body, and I am just going on adrenaline.

"But in the overarching objective of my life, I am really only at mile two. I try to keep that in mind."

The 'Love Game' star also confessed that she works hard for her fans, adding: "I see myself in them. I was this really bad, rebellious misfit of a person - I still am - sneaking out, going to clubs, drugs, alcohol, older men, younger men. You imagine it, I did it.

"I was just a bad kid. And I look at them, and every show there’s a little more eyeliner, a little more freedom, and a little more 'I don’t give a f**k about the bullies at my school'. For some reason, the fans didn’t become more Top 40. They become even more of this cult following. It’s very strange and exciting."

The Dress Lindsay Lohan Wore to Court Yesterday Is Now Sold Out

White, tight Kimberly Ovitz dress: $575; black Chanel 5182 sunglasses; $320; wearing a dress that sells out hours after you appear in court: priceless.

So much for the speculation about whether Lindsay Lohan is going back to jail; now it's all about her white hot court dress. How can you get one? The dress is from designer Kimberly Ovitz's pre-fall collection and retails for $575 according to Ovitz's spokeswoman Alexandra Gordon.

Along with other blogs and news outlets, US Weekly asked its readers, "Was Lindsay Lohan's Court Dress Appropriate?"

But shoppers seem to be eating the dress up. The "Glavis" design from Ovitz' pre-Fall collection is sold out at every online boutique that carries Ovitz's designs. The super-snug number retails for $575, but only if you can find a retailer that still has it available.

Lindsay Police Report Pokes Holes In Jeweler's Story



The police report detailing how Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace from an L.A. jewelry store shows two puzzling  inconsistencies in the jeweler's story -- inconsistencies that could help Lindsay beat the rap.

According to the report, obtained by TMZ, the jeweler first told cops Lindsay had been in the store three times before the alleged theft -- looking at the necklace in question. The next day, the jeweler changed her story and said it was actually a ring Lindsay had been eyeing on previous visits and never looked at the necklace.

And there's another inconsistency.  According to the report, on January 23, the owner told cops, "The surveillance video revealed that as Kaman [owner] was talking to Lindsay's male friend, Lohan reached up to her neck area with both hands, removed the store necklace, and placed it inside her black Chanel bag." 

But the next day, the owner changed her story, saying Lindsay walked out of her store with the necklace around her neck. The reason for the inconsistency -- the owner claims she reviewed the video on a different monitor the second time and saw it differently.

The jewelry store owner's credibility is crucial because Lindsay claims the owner loaned the necklace to her.

Linnocent Lohan: 'I Was Not Raised To Lie, Cheat, Or Steal'



Lindsay Lohan is breaking her silence about allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store and says she “would never steal,” RadarOnline.com has learned.

“I just want to be on set again, and left alone to just work!” Lindsay wrote in an extended post on her Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

“fyi – i would never steal, in case people are wondering. I was not raised to lie, cheat, or steal.”

The 24-year-old Mean Girls "star" appeared at a Los Angeles courthouse Wednesday afternoon after being charged with felony grand theft for an arraignment in which her probation was revoked and she posted $40,000 bail.

“what i wear to court shouldnt be front page news,” Lindsay wrote, referring to the white Kimberly Ovitz dress she wore that many deemed inappropriate attire because it was too short and too tight.

“it’s just absurd. god bless xox L.”

Last month, Lohan wrapped up a 90-day court-ordered stay at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California – marking her fifth stint in rehab – after she tested positive for cocaine while on probation.

Kanye is Stuck in 1972; Please Send Help


Kanye West may be a superstar rapper, but according to pint-sized popstar Justin Bieber, Yeezy doesn't own a mobile phone.

The Baby hitmaker, who worked with Kanye on a remix of his tune Runaway Love, claims he was shocked to find out that the Power rapper doesn't have a cell.

Speaking of Yeezy to our US Team, the 16-year old singer revealed: "It's funny, because he doesn't even use a phone, he just sends email."

Bieber continued: "It's so crazy. I'm like, 'How can you not use a phone?'"


Justin, who premiered his new 3D movie Never Say Never in LA last night, also shed some light on what it is like working with Kanye, revealing that West is "really laid back."

The Pray singer explained: "He reproduced the 'Runaway' joint, and I'm really excited. It was amazing. He's such a cool guy, and he's just really laid back and just nice, and at the end of the day, he's just a nice person."

JB's manager Scooter Braun also admitted that Bieber and West are collaborating on some new material for Justin's next album, stating: "Justin is working on new music. He and Kanye had a call the other day about a song they're trying to work on together."

He added: "Kanye wants to produce a bunch of new songs for the new album."

Could Gaga Score the 1000th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100?



Next week's Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, to be released on Billboard.com Feb. 17, is shaping up to be one of the most historic frames in the list's 52-year history.

Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" rises 4-1 on the Hot 100 released today (Feb. 10) on Billboard.com, marking the 999th No. 1 title in the chart's archives. Which means: Dating from Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool" the week the list originated -- Aug. 4, 1958 -- the Hot 100 is now just one song away from its landmark 1000th leader.

Which song might be the 1000th No. 1?

Interscope Records will service Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to radio this Friday (Feb. 11) at 6 a.m. ET and iTunes three hours later. Other digital retailers are expected to offer the track within the following 24 hours.

With a heavy promotional push and Lady Gaga's expected buzzworthy performance Sunday (Feb. 13) at the 53rd Grammy Awards, to be telecast live on CBS, the lead single from the star's forthcoming third studio album could amass enough out-of-the-box sales and radio audience to secure the song coveted status as the Hot 100's 1000th chart-topper.

Also in the mix for No. 1 next week are P!nk's "F**kin' Perfect" and tracks from the cast of Fox TV's "Glee," which has released nine songs from episodes that aired Sunday (Feb. 6), following the Super Bowl, and last night (8).

Of course, to play wet-blanket devil's advocate, the wait for the 1000th Hot 100 No. 1 could last past next week, should "Black and Yellow" log a second week on top, or should a former No. 1, such as Bruno Mars' "Grenade" or Katy Perry's "Firework," return to the summit. (The Hot 100 currently employs a formula measuring radio airplay, as tabulated by BDS, sales, according to SoundScan, and streaming activity data provided by online music sources.)

We'll find out if the Hot 100 logs its 1000th No. 1 next week.

Source

If Gaga can top Britney's first week sales for "Hold It Against Me," I think it's possible for her to score a #1 debut. She'll have 2 days less to do it though, since the sales week runs from Monday-Sunday and new releases are usually out on Tuesdays. Still, with as much hype as this song has been getting and the bump she'll get from performing at the Grammy's on Sunday, it could definitely happen.

Charlie Sheen offers to help out TV crew

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Charlie Sheen seems to really be getting how much his rehab and his partying ways are affecting others around him. In fact, he's realized how much it's hurting the staff at his popular show Two and a Half Men so much that he's offered to pay them out of his own pocket.

In a move that's as surprising as it is generous, Charlie Sheen has decided that it's not fair that the crew of his show not be paid and employed while he's busy getting his life back together in rehab.

TMZ is reporting that the star, whose addiction issues have caused an interruption in filming, has promised to pay one-third of their salaries if CBS and Warner Brothers pay the rest.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting however, that no decision has yet been taken by the TV companies.

The 45-year old actor is currently undergoing residential rehab in his Los Angeles mansion after recent binges saw him rushed to the local emergency room.

It has been reported that Sheen is eager to return to work on the set of the comedy show. However the break in filming has seen 300 crew members with no work and the studio is under no obligation to pay the staff.

Dianna Agron: 'I'd love SATC role'

Photobucket

Dianna Agron has confessed that she would love to take on the iconic role of Carrie Bradshaw in the upcoming Sex And The City prequel The Carrie Diaries.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, the Glee actress revealed that while she would be honoured to be part of the project, she would feel intimidated taking on the character that is so strongly tied to Sarah Jessica Parker.

"Of course [I would do it]. I mean, who hasn't seen every episode five million times," she said.

"But then again, you run the risk of people hating it. I mean, how do you compete against Sarah Jessica Parker? She originated that!"

Miley Cyrus also expressed her interest in the role to the website, saying: "I would love it. I'm not attached, so I don't want to say that, but that would be very cool."

Is the King’s Speech Really a Great Film?

Telegraph film critics Marc Lee and Tim Robey debate the appeal of the current favourite for Sunday night's BAFTA.

 
"NO" by Tim Robey

For as long as it continues to parade through awards season, collecting enough silverware to compete with the Balmoral tea service, knocking The King’s Speech looks pretty much like a mug’s game. Family, friends and colleagues — including many people for whom a cinema trip is a blue-moon event — rave about how much they loved Tom Hooper’s film, and I squirm and sit quiet, hoping the subject will change, or mumbling something about the weather, or how great The Fighter is. Like Slumdog Millionaire a few years ago, The King’s Speech has become this year’s Film I’m Hiding From, which is in no way to say that it’s outright bad.

"YES" by Marc Lee

Never have tears welled so quickly while I’ve been sitting in a cinema. The King’s Speech grabs your heart and wrings it for the best part of two hours — right from the opening scene.

Arrested Development;  Michael thumbs up

Alia Shawkat On Hipsters, Ellen Page, & the Future of ‘Arrested Development’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


With a role on one of the great television comedies of all time under her belt, Alia Shawkat now finds herself in an interesting but all-too-familiar showbiz conundrum: Trying to build a career when everybody knows you as "that girl from Arrested Development." One step in the right direction is Cedar Rapids, an Ed Helms vehicle in which Shawkat plays a small-town hooker with a drug habit who takes Helms' prudish insurance salesman under her slightly shady wing. And Shawkat isn't exactly waiting around for that next great script -- instead, she's writing her own. Currently in development at HBO is Stitch n’ Bitch, a series the California native wrote with friends Ellen Page and Har Mar Superstar about two hipsters who'll do anything to live their lives as artists. We recently caught up with the actress to discuss the negative connotations of the word 'hipster,' finding worthwhile scripts, and Arrested Development: the movie.

Michael Rosenbaum Has "Moved On" From Smallville


Lex Luthor’s latest scheme is perhaps his most villainous yet: Refusing to appear in the Smallville series finale.

EW has learned that actor Michael Rosenbaum has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by producers this season to get him back on The CW’s show to reprise his role as Luthor in the finale.

“He has put the show behind him and moved on,” says a knowledgeable source. “He’s pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved.”

Fringe Bosses: There's More To the Rest of Season Than Peter, the Olivias and The Machine


Photobucket




If it seems too simple that the final 10 episodes of Fringe‘s third season will revolve around Peter, the two Olivias and the ultimate purpose of The Machine… well, that’s because it absolutely is. “We’re full of wrinkles,” executive producer Jeff Pinkner promises TVLine. “We’re like a pair of corduroy pants.”


One wrinkle the size of the San Andreas fault comes at the end of this Friday’s episode, which is set in the other universe. But even beyond that, Pinkner and fellow EP J.H. Wyman say that things will get increasingly labyrinthine as the Season 3 finale draws closer.

Art Based On Your Childhood Cartoons Showcased In L.A. Gallery



Artists Jessicka Addams, Roman Dirge and More Talk Nostalgic Cartoons at Meltdown's Gag Me with a Toon 3
By Liz Ohanesian


"Out of Work the Blue Period" by Jeffrey J. Page

"Saturday morning cartoons and afterschool cartoons were super inspiring to me as a kid to be an artist as I got older," said Steven Daily, curator of Gag Me with a Toon, the cartoon-referencing group show that opened at Meltdown Comics Friday night. "All of the people in the show are either my friends-- really close friends-- or friends of friends. They all love these cartoons, so I thought that it would be a good idea to give homage to the cartoons that inspired us all to be artists and painters. We want the show to be fun, no pretentiousness."

​ Now in its third installment, Gag Me with a Toon brings together a wide variety of artists. Daily estimated that over sixty people participated in this year's show, but he didn't have an exact count. Some, like Dan Quintana and Metalocalypse director Jon Schnepp, have been involved in all three Gag Me with a Toon events. Others, like Carlos Ramos, are new to the show.

​ As the name implies, Gag Me with a Toon focuses on '80s cartoons, programs that the artists would have seen as children, although not all of the influences stem from that decade. Daily said that The Smurfs is often a common reference in the artwork.
"Every year, we have three or four Smurf pieces."

He added, "This year, it's Jem. There's a lot of Jem. I think it's probably because glam is on the rise again."

We also noticed quite a few references to G.I. Joe, Transformers and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

"There are a lot of boys in this show," he explained. "The masculine stuff seems to pop up more than everything."

We talked to several artists who participated in Gag Me with a Toon, who shared the stories behind their animated picks.
