MJ Family Offended by American Idol ~Pepsi Moment~

Michael Jackson's family is offended by a comment made on "American Idol" last night by a contestant, who made light of MJ's devastating injury that triggered years of drug abuse.

If you saw the show, James Durbin told Ryan Seacrest after his performance, "I have a lot of hairspray in my hair to keep it from jumping around -- so much so, the one thing I was worried about was having a 'Pepsi moment.'"

Collapse )


LOL they need to just calm down. Even MJ had a sense of humor about it all . . . he joked about the incident with Pepsi execs years later, according to this article by Clay G. Small:

". . . While describing his plans to tour the globe [in 1986], Michael said that this time he would 'set the world on fire' and then said 'oops' as he touched the top of his singed head. I laughed out loud until I fielded a sour glance from [Pepsi-Cola president] Roger Enrico and realized no one else was even smiling. But Michael gave me a secret wink – I was the only suit who had appreciated his irreverent joke." (link)

Nicole Richie's Got a New Look! Which Length Do You Prefer?

Newest on the right

Over the years, Nicole Richie has experimented with her look and there's been heaps of different hair colours and lengths along the way. Her chic blonde bob started a stylish surge copycats across the globe and at an event in LA this week, Nicole was at it again, showing off her latest look, wearing beachy-cool, chest-length waves. It's not a new new look — Nic was rocking a similar boho vibe back in June '09 — but it's a pretty one all the same. What do you think of her longer style? Is it your favourite length? Or do you prefer one of Nic's older styles?

Top 10 kids’ shows with grown-up appeal

Move over, kiddies! Quit hogging the boob tube! Just because some of the best shows on television have been packaged for children doesn’t mean they’re not meant for grown-up eyes. As a matter of fact, a lot of that so-called kids’ fare comes jam-packed with the sort of social commentary and double entendres that only improve with age.

So for those who gave up cartoons before they hit their teens and left the live-action kids’ shows to the little ones far too soon, it’s never too late revisit those former favorites and check out some new additions.

HBC: "I’m not confident"

Helena Bonham Carter still suffers from “spasms” of self-doubt, but has learnt not to let it get to her.

The actress recently won the best supporting actress BAFTA for her portrayal of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech. She has been nominated for two Oscars and countless other accolades during her career, but still finds it hard to shake the idea she isn’t quite good enough.

Helena is renowned for wearing kooky outfits on the red carpet and says that also ties in with her confidence issues.

“I just thought I‘d never look good in what everybody else wore. So there’s no point trying. You just have to do what suits you, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t look like everybody else. Be you. That’s our gift and we’ve got to celebrate that, but it does take ages,” she explained. “I was wracked with self-doubt for years. I get spasms of it even now – I’m not indelibly self-confident.”

Helena says acting has helped her grow to love herself and feel more accepted.

'Glee' Turns Off the Singing, Plans All-Silent Episode

Glee is going mute. The hit FOX comedy is planning an upcoming episode that will be an homage to classic silent movies, featuring absolutely no dialogue. Even more surprising, the episode will also silence the singing.

The very special episode of Glee, scheduled to air April 31, will center on New Directions' quest to communicate with each other without words. BuddyTV spoke to someone involved in the show about the episode, but he asked to remain anonymous, so I'll just refer to him as Myan Rurphy.

"Writing dialogue is so exhausting that we never have any time to work on plots, so the only way we could actually have something happen on the show was to remove all the talking," Rurphy said in between sips of a virgin watermelon mojito while sunbathing in the nude beside his infinity pool. "Plus, I'm sick and tired of getting in trouble with Lindsay Lohan for all the lines on the show about how she's a dirty, thieving skank. Which she is."

The special silent Glee will also feature a storyline where, to preserve her vocal cords for Nationals, Rachel Berry spends the entire episode with duct tape over her mouth. "I know it's a dumb idea," Rurphy said, "But she ruined 28 takes because she couldn't not sing, so muzzling that diva was the only way to make it work."

While there won't be any dialogue in the entire hour, the episode will feature musical accompaniment to set the mood. If you're sad that this means a week without any new Glee songs to download on iTunes, don't worry. The episode is going to feature instrumental covers of hit songs, including the holiday classic "Silent Night," Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet" and No Doubt's "Don't Speak."

Glee's daring new episode is clearly inspired by the classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Hush," which featured the residents of Sunnydale having their voices stolen by evil fairy tale monsters known as the Gentlemen. That episode earned Joss Whedon his only Emmy nomination for the show and is generally regarded as one of its best.

Will Glee's silent episode be as successful as Buffy's? Fans will have to tune in to find out, but by being forced not to rely on snappy dialogue or singing, perhaps Glee can focus on plot and, ironically, find its voice.

Fantasia Sang "COLLARD GREENS AND CORNBREAD" on "American Idol" - Video

On ‘American Idol’ tonight, Season Three winner Fantasia Barrino debuted her smoldering new single, ‘Collard Greens and Corn Bread,’ a doo-wop inspired number from her new album, ‘Back to Me.’


Fantasia looked the part of an old school, seductive ’50s vocal temptress, dressed from head to toe in a curve-hugging red dress with a slit up to here and sporting a big curl perched atop of her head. She even slipped a little ‘Steven, I love you’ to judge Steven Tyler before belting out the final note. You’d think it was 2004 all over again, with Fantasia still a contestant trying to win the judge’s favor, instead of the Grammy-winning star that she is now!

Chatting with Ryan Seacrest post-performance, Fantasia offered her advice to the contestants, in her signature baby-doll voice. “This business, it’s a tough business, so you have to love what you do,” the singer said. She also told the hopefuls to “keep good people with you, people who will tell you ‘no’ and not tell you ‘yes’ just because. The first love is the music for me. It’s not always peaches and cream and it’s not always good, but you can do it.”

Sources: http://popcrush.com/fantasia-barrino-american-idol-collard-greens-and-cornbread/; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMETFJ22tKM

FYI, Fantasia has gained 30-40 pounds because she has been cast as gospel legend Mahalia Jackson in an upcoming film.

Charlie Sheen Show -- No Refunds

TMZ got hold of a ticket to Charlie Sheen's one-man show, and TicketMaster is hedging its bets if Charlie goes off the rails.

When you read the fine print on the back of the ticket -- standard language -- it sounds a little like a dice roll, because if Charlie doesn't show up, the ticket holder would only be entitled to a refund if the event is not re-scheduled within a year of the original show date.

So ... if Charlie is a no-show at one of his concerts, what are the chances he'll do a make-good concert within 12 months? God-dess only knows.

Christina Aguilera To Front Nightwish?

Christina Aguilera has found new life in the music industry by taking over vocal duties for Finnish metal act Nightwish. The band issued the following statement about the lineup change and about parting ways with Anette Olzon:

“Anette gave us an undeniable pop presence, which really opened up our audience and let us do things we hadn’t been able to do before. Unfortunately due to personal differences we have parted ways with Anette and we wish her the best of luck in her next endeavor.

“Nightwish will now be exploring even new musical territory with the fantastic Christina Aguilera. Inevitably the press will question how she can work out in a metal band, but so far the fit has been perfect and I think the fans will really be blown away. Her soulful style of singing fits our music perfectly.”

Reportedly a new song and music video titled “Bye Bye More Beautiful” is in the works.

"[It's] a day-by-day thing that we work on [because] what happened was extremely painful," Kim Richards, 46, told PEOPLE at Bravo's upfront presentation in Los Angeles. "It's not going to cure itself over night and hopefully we will grow past all that happened and move forward and get stronger and stronger."

While the fight was certainly regrettable, Kyle, 42, sees things differently now. "I'm very proud. I can only say for myself, but I learned a lot about our relationship," Kyle said. "I've learned a lot about myself and I feel like our relationship was strengthened maybe because of what happened."

First set pics of the new "Hansel and Gretel"

From Caught on Set:

Jeremy Renner is spotted on the set of his new action-comedy film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters in Braunschweig, Germany yesterday (Mar. 31). His co-star Gemma Arterton was also spotted on set – check out her pics in the gallery.

The film has a great premise – it catches up with Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) 15 years after the infamous incident at the gingerbread house. The two fairy tale siblings are now witch hunters. So COOL!

Remaking classic fairy tales seems to be the thing to do this year in Hollywood. Gnomeo & Juliet is currently in theaters; Vanessa Hudgens is beginning production soon on Beastly, a modern version of Beauty and the Beast; and two different films are being made based on the classic Snow White: The Brothers Grimm: Snow White starring Julia Roberts and Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart.

"I am healthy and happy," Swanepoel tells PEOPLE. "I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case, everything is normal and good."

Swanepoel, 22, raised concern when she modeled a new line of Victoria's Secret swimwear on Wednesday in Los Angeles looking significantly skinnier than she had in photos taken months earlier.

At the event, she attributed her thin physique to diet, stress and workouts. Back in November at New York Fashion Week, she told ABC News her tough work schedule keeps the weight off.

"I've been traveling around like crazy," she said at the time. "I get skinnier if I'm very busy."

'Deathly Hallows: Part Two' Confirmed for 3D


Harry Potter producer David Heyman has confirmed that the 3D conversion of the final film is going ahead.

The 3D release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One was canceled after filmmakers were unable to complete the transition into 3D for the entire film. Most recently, Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) expressed doubt that the conversion of the final movie, Deathly Hallows: Part Two, would be approved.

However, speaking to Collider, Heyman asserted that the 3D release will go ahead, saying: "Yes it is. The reason we didn't do it on the first part was because we didn't feel that we could do it justice. And actually the 3D would compromise the film, so we didn't have the time."

Fellow producer David Barron explained: "We were diving into 3D for the first time - it was a new world for us, and so we didn't get off to a fine start. There wasn't time to do it properly, and so Warners very, very kindly supported us. I'm sure they were wishing it was not the case, but they were hugely supportive to not put out something that we weren't happy with."

Heyman revealed that the team are "really excited about the quality" of the conversion of the final film.

"We feel it adds something to the film and is really immersive, as opposed to taking out, which I think a lot of 3D can do," he said.
"And it's been great for us going through that process to lead into the theatrical because I think we've learned an awful lot. David Yates is approaching 3D from a character point of view."

Kourtney Kardashian Felt "Like a Prostitute" on One Life to Live

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kourtney Kardashian is ready to kiss and tell.

Days after making her TV acting debut on One Life to Live, the reality star says she's still reeling over her big on-screen smooch.

"I felt like a prostitute," the 31-year-old mom admitted to Jay Leno during a Thursday appearance with sis Kim. "Like, [I was] being paid to kiss someone."

While Kardashian's beau of nearly four years, Scott Disick, helped her practice her kissing scene, the newly-minted actress says it took her a while to warm up to her OLTL costar David Fumero.

"I looked him up online,"
she told Leno of Fumero, who appears as bad boy Cristian Vega. "I'm like, 'I need to see this guy. Is he 99 [years-old], like, what is he?' And he's a very handsome guy. So that makes it easier."

When it came time for the big moment, Kardashian was prepared. "I probably ate a hundred mints that day," she tells Leno. "But I'm still such a prude!"

All in all, the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star was happy with how her episode turned out.

"Growing up, I would always pretend to be sick so I could stay home from school and watch One Life to Live!" she tells UsMagazine.com. "[My role] was so much fun!"


Ke$ha reminds Avril of herself

Avril Lavigne on Getting Divorced, Doing Jäger Shots and Cooking in Her Bel-Air Castle
'As I was getting carried out of the bar I saw Chad from Nickelback! Isn't that funny?'
By Austin Scaggs
April 1, 2011 8:20 AM ET

A year ago, Avril Lavigne finished her fourth album — but her label, RCA Records, wasn't interested in an album's worth of introspective, acoustic numbers. "They were like, 'Uh, can you make a new record — something that's more today?'" says Lavigne, still sounding pissed as she sips white wine in New York's Plaza Hotel. "It really hurt my feelings when they didn't say, 'We're proud of you.'" On Goodbye Lullaby, Lavigne, 26, meets the label halfway: Softer songs like "Remember When" and "Darlin" share space with throbbing productions by Swedish hitmaker Max Martin — including "Wish You Were Here" and the first single, "What the Hell." ("I had to release that first," she says. "It sounds like something the fans are used to, like 'Sk8er Boi' or 'Girlfriend.'") The big twist is that half of the album was produced by Lavigne's ex-husband, Deryck Whibley of Sum 41, from whom she was divorced last year. "Everyone's always surprised that we're still so close," she says. "Like, 'Really?!'"

Katy Perry has scored her fifth number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with 'E.T.'.

The track, which sold 254,000 downloads last week, also becomes her fourth consecutive number one hit - a feat last seen from Usher's 2004 Confessions album.

"I am so thrilled that 'E.T.' has landed at No. 1," Perry told Billboard. "I want to thank all the fans who contributed to this amazing feat and radio, which has been an essential part of my continued existence. I truly appreciate all the support of my creative twists and turns."

Behind Perry, Rihanna's 'S&M' rises one to second place, and Cee Lo Green's 'F**k You!' competes the top three.

Wiz Khalifa lands at number six with 'No Sleep', and Jennifer Lopez's 'On The Floor' advances 13 to ten.

Further down the chart, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber's 'Next To You' debuts at 26, while Tinie Tempah's 'Written In The Stars' leaps 39 to 27.

Jessie J's 'Price Tag' jumps 54 to 50, Rebecca Black's 'Friday' vaults 72 to 58, and Jennifer Hudson's 'Where You At' moves from 89 to 64.

Elton John slams 'Glee' haters

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
On Thursday's episode of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," Sir Elton John took aim at the bands who have refused to let the producers of "Glee" use their songs on the hit show, insisting they should be flattered.

John was thrilled when "American Idol" dedicated a night to his music earlier this week and can't understand why bands like Kings of Leon and the Foo Fighters would turn such an offer down.

He says, "A lot of bands are saying we don't want our stuff on 'Glee.' Like, lighten up, you a**holes! I mean, this is a compliment."

"[The show] sends a positive message out,"
he continues. "What the hell is wrong with you guys? ... Kings of Leon, lighten up guys. Come on!"

John insists he feels flattered whenever her hears other people's versions of his songs - even if they're awful.

He adds, "It's so great when people do your songs. I started off as a songwriter, so even now, when I get into an elevator and there's muzak and it's one of my songs, I feel really happy about it because it's a compliment when someone does one of your songs. It doesn't matter if it's a bad version. ... I've never lost that thrill."

Daniel Radcliffe admits he’s terrified. At the time of this interview he’s two months away from opening his first Broadway musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and on the eve of his first rehearsal he knows he has much to prove. “When you see a musical, it’s so complete, so massive that I can’t personally imagine where you could possibly start!” he says before realizing how funny that might sound coming from the star of one of the most fantastical film franchises ever. “Harry Potter is wizardry on film. It’s a certain amount of technical effects, and I know how that works, whereas in Broadway musicals, there are no effects. It’s just manpower and technical skill that create all that enormity.”

When Radcliffe explains himself there’s no hint of false modesty, and the word precocious has finally been retired as a way to characterize the 21-year-old, who has grown up considerably even since his Broadway debut in 2008’s Equus, for which he famously had to strip down every night. The London native plans to perform in How to Succeed in Business into 2012, and he’s pleased to restore his status as Englishman in New York. “There is something very special about being English in this city, because there’s a certain fascination with British culture,” he says. “I don’t know what it is, but I feel a lot cooler here than I do in England.”

Shiloh Fernandez Covers 'Da Man' April 2011

Here’s what the 24-year-old Red Riding Hood actor, who wore clothing by Dior Homme, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ben Sherman, and Levi’s, had to share:

On whether he’d rather keep doing movies or TV:
“I like the experience of a film because you sign up for a particular role and it has a start date and it has an end date. I think it would be a great experience to be on a TV show where you play a character that’s always changing, always different, but I haven’t had a lot of opportunities come up in TV recently. I’d absolutely be open to it. I feel like, for me right now, film seems a better fit.”

On what he likes to do to recuperate after projects:
“I like to play catch with a baseball. I like to go to my hometown and smell the aroma of Grape Crush. I like to play with my baby brother and baby sister (ages five and three), chat and drink wine until the wee hours of the night.”

On what he’d be doing if he weren’t acting:
“I would love to learn how to build houses. I wish I was a better writer. Maybe I would finish college and get a degree so I could get paid to sit down and chat with folks. That question is a persistent one that’s always in the back of my mind.”

Seasoned actress, Jada Pinkett Smith continues to defend her and husband, Will Smith's decision to allow their kids to begin their showbiz careers so early. She insists that Willow and Jaden don't bear the same financial burdens as other child stars.

She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Our children are allowed to stay in the paradigm of being a child. They don't have to take care of their families: become the complete emotional, physical, and financial focus that happens to many child stars. Our family structure is a little different and it's quite hard to comprehend because it's so outside what usually happens in a family, but the paradigm is the same."

Amidst 12-year-old, Jaden's award-winning 2010 remake of 'The Karate Kid' and 10-year-old, Willow's budding musical career and current tour with Justin Beiber, the parents have come under public scrutiny.

Author, Terry McMillan, has even accused the parents of "exploiting" and "pimping" the pre-teens. Jada, ever-graceful under pressure, doesn't seem phased or swayed by McMillan or anyone else's opinion.

TV Squad Talks to Michelle Forbes on 'The Killing,' Dark Roles and Grieving

You know when a U.S. network reworks a European series (in this case, one from Denmark), it's going to be dark and brooding. AMC's 'The Killing' is just that -- unsettling, gloomy and melancholy. Starring Michelle Forbes ('True Blood,' 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'Durham County') as a mother trying to deal with the mysterious disappearance of her daughter Rosie, this is anything but light fare.

Filmed in Vancouver posing as Seattle, 'The Killing' is a 13-episode murder-mystery series, but with such a stellar cast and stark vibe, it ends up offering up more than your standard whodunit. [TV Squad] caught up with Forbes and chatted about her attraction to dark roles, how she channels such raw emotion and if she's ever going to take a break from the intensity.

Lindsay Betty Ford Clash -- Hear the Violent 911 Confrontation

I uploaded it 4 ur pleasure. I hope y'all like Dawn's O face.

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by Lindsay Lohan during the nuclear argument she had with Betty Ford staffer Dawn Holland -- an argument Holland says turned violent.

It all went down on December 12, when the staffer -- Dawn Holland -- claims she busted Lindsay and two other girls jumping a wall at Betty Ford at around 1 AM. -- after curfew. During the 911 call, Lindsay and Dawn were both on the line on separate phones. Lindsay says, "She's freaking me out!"

When Dawn tried to make Lindsay take a breathalyzer, she says "Lindsay Lohan pushed me and hit me with the phone." Dawn claims she knows the other two girls Lindsay was with were drunk, "reeking of alcohol."

During the call, Dawn claims she grabbed the phone to talk to the dispatcher ... but Lindsay ripped the phone from her hand ... spraining Dawn's wrist in the process.

As we first reported, the Riverside County District Attorney declined to prosecute Lindsay over the incident.

Story developing...


lol the call is a mess. Lindsay has a kid voice. DA should have prosecuted tbh.

Lady GaGa given $40K ruby slippers from 'The Wizard of Oz'

Lady GaGa is said to be over the moon after receiving a pair of £25,000 ruby slippers, made originally for Judy Garland for her role as Dorothy in the Wizard Of Oz.

The Born This Way singer, who performed with the famous shoes at her LA Monster Ball show on her 25th birthday, was allegedly given the slippers from the cult 1939 movie by her management, before going on stage at the Staples Center.

Blind Items

Brought to you by Maru who will cut a bitch if they get all up in his bidness

1. This D List bleach blond celebrity recently visited a spiritualist that told her that she is the spirit of Marilyn Monroe reincarnated. She was also promised that her career would blossom into something bigger than Ms. Monroe’s if the D Lister would visit the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery where Marilyn is interned at least once a month for a year. The D Lister has already visited twice.
My Guess: lol visiting a grave site isn't going to save your career, Lindsay.

2. Which young star was spotted picking up a pregnancy test during her next promotional stop? She’s officially single right now, but toying with the idea of new boyfriend though it remains to be seen whether or not he’s just a convenient distraction for publicity or the real deal. Or maybe it’s a leftover from the ex after a farewell hookup? Needless to say, with that kind of purchase, someone’s been in there. And they may have not been careful, although I guess it shouldn’t surprise me anymore that getting knocked up is a career strategy these days. Naïve as it sound however in her case I just can’t see it. Too young, not ready. Which means I hope her test comes back negative. Because otherwise, obviously, it’s a lot of drama to take care of.
Lainey Gossip
My Guess: Vanessa Hudgens, but seriously who cares? Ooooo a consenting adult buying a pregnancy test! SO OUT OF CONTROL

3. Which drug-addled son (of a late TV star mother and a former hunk father) is about to become a daddy? He isn’t married and definitely wasn’t planning on getting his gal pregnant. He is running through his inheritance so fast that his family fears he won’t have anything left for the baby.
Blind Gossip
My Guess: Redmond O'Neil, Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neil's son

4. Which C list celebrity who just starred in a commercial overseas made so many racial slurs during the taping of the bit that the manager waived their fee out of embarrassment?
My Guess: Paris Hilton because she's already proven that she's a disgusting racist metrolpolis for crabs

Matt Morrison Announces Tour, World Collectively #KanyeShrugs, Continues to Await Mary Poppins Tour


Matthew Morrison, who plays the glee club teacher Mr. Schuester on Fox’s Glee, announced a nationwide summer concert tour Friday.

He’ll perform songs from his upcoming solo album, including the recently debuted single “Summer Rain,” as well as favorites from the show.

Or maybe the five-week, 22-city tour is just an elaborate cover-up to find a replacement for his New Directions singers.

Regional glee clubs can compete to open for Morrison when he comes to their town, an opportunity co-sponsored by the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. Clubs can submit their entries here.

Then again, this could be a chance for Morrison to expand his career options yet again. He teamed with the comedy website Funny or Die to create a series of original videos; some will premiere on the site, and some will be worked into his concerts.

Morrison will hit the Beacon Theatre in New York on July 1 and wrap the tour July 23 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on July 23.

Bronx Zoo's Cobra Eats Ryan Seacrest!

The Bronx Zoo’s Cobra, which famously went missing last Friday only to turn up on Twitter to the delight of the entire Twittersphere, has hijacked the Twitter account of American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.This is despite reports from Bronx Zoo officials that the cobra was found Thursday, a mere 200 feet from where it had escaped from a holding cage.

The joke appears to be somewhat elaborate on Seacrest’s part; not only has he staged a takeover of his Twitter account, his team has also revamped his website with features like “Britney Spears’s Albino Python: Where Is He Now?” and “5 Dos and Dont’s for Dating a Cobra.” Seacrest and his team must have suffered a moment of panic when the cobra was discovered the day before April Fools’.

Whatever, I think this is cute! I stopped watching AI years ago, but I always found Seacrest to be surprisingly likable!

No Fuck No - "Hunger Games" Male Leads To Be Cast Soon?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

XCLUSIVE: Casting for the male leads on The Hunger Games isn't complete. I'm hearing that at the moment, Liam Hemsworth is frontrunner for the role of Gale Hawthorne, and that Josh Hutcherson is in the same position for the role of Peeta Mellark. In the Gary Ross-directed adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel trilogy, Gale is the hunting partner of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), and Peeta Mellark is the baker's son chosen to accompany her as the district's entry into the deadly Hunger Games reality show competition. Both have been hotly contested roles among young actors, as was Katniss before Lawrence got the job. Both of these guys look rights for the respective parts. Per Lionsgate, no offers have yet been made, and nothing is definitive.


Netflix ain't fooling you

Netflix just got cooler. The entertainment powerhouse and Fox have extended their content arrangement.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 'Glee,' 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Ally McBeal' have been added to Netflix's instant stream feature. It's just 'Glee' season 1 at the moment, but we all know how great some of those episodes were. 'Sons of Anarchy' season 1 and 2, along with the entire series of 'Ally McBeal' are currently available.

"Our expanded non-exclusive streaming arrangement with Netflix maintains Fox's flexibility to effectively manage both the content we offer, and the appropriate window of availability relative to our other distribution partnerships," Peter Levinsohn, president of new media and digital distribution at Fox Filmed Entertainment, said in a statement.

The report also says 'The Wonder Years' will soon be making its way to instant stream.

In addition to the new TV titles, Fox will also make some flicks available after the premium pay TV license periods end.

"We've worked closely with Fox for the last year to provide our members access to some of the studio's greatest TV franchises and library of both contemporary and classic movies," Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said in a statement. "Our members love TV shows, and making such pop-culture hits like 'Glee' and 'Sons of Anarchy' available to watch instantly reinforces our commitment to provide them a wider selection of programs."

Do Americans know Cheryl Cole?

There's been endless speculation over whether the British judge and singer will be involved in Simon Cowell's new venture - which already boasts L.A. Reid as one of the confirmed judges - but while she has one of the most recognised faces in the UK, does America actually know who she is?

While we await an official decision on who else will join the judging panel, we asked hopefuls at the LA auditions this week - where a record-breaking crowd of more than 18,000 queued outside the LA Sports Arena - what they knew about Ms Cole...


I was surprised at how many people knew her tbh!

At Long Last, the Results You've Been Waiting For!

Hello, ONTD!

Many of you may--and some of you will--remember a post that I made on January 6, 2010 titled "ONTD's Most Memorable Posts of 2009: Discussion/Nominations." (Click here to be taken to it.)

If you don't, perhaps the graphic that ecctv made for it will ring a bell:

What you won't remember is any sort of results post--because, unfortunately, it never went live. Why? Well, the nominations everyone put forth in the comments of the original post were made at a massively unprecedented rate. Simply put, it's taken until now to dredge through all of them and come up with a list of winners.

But wait! Fear not, ye Jackals, for I come to you today bearing some long-awaited good news...

And The Piquira Hate Continues...

Shakira Banned In Madrid
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's pretty obvious that most men will envy Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. After all, he is in a relationship with Colombian singer Shakira. However, his rivals at Real Madrid have taken things to a new level by removing Shakira's hit 'Waka Waka' from the Bernabeu stadium playlist.

Could it be down to team rivalry and petty jealousy? The Sun reports the track was used as the official anthem of the Spanish football team during their winning campaign for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Since then, the song was reported to be played during pre-match build ups and at half-time at Real Madrid games -- but not any more.

Meanwhile, Shakira has donated $400,000 (£250,000) to re-build a Haitian school after it was damaged during the January 2010 earthquake. Her donation will be matched by the Inter-American Development Bank.

AFP reports that the singer addressed around 100 of the school's students and said: "I am delighted to have the opportunity to help you make your dream come true. I would like to tell the girls of the Elie Dubois school that you should seize the opportunity for education."

Why Reality Show Reunions Are Horrible


Yesterday I remarked how sad I was Jersey Shore was over for the season and someone replied, "No, there's still the reunion." Screw that. The only thing worse than your favorite reality show being off the air is the inane reunion special.

The best reality shows are great because they're unpredictable. Even the most scripted or massaged shows are most entertaining when something goes entirely off the rails, and that usually happens in the heat of the moment. The subjects forget that they're on camera (sometimes due to alcohol), or things get so emotionally intense that they can't put on a front for the audience. That's what makes good TV. The thing about the reunion special that is now de rigueur for every popular show is that the environment is far too controlled. These people are no longer in reality, they're in a closed-off sound stage where they can plan almost every element of the production. Remember the reunion after season two of the Real Housewives of Atlanta where it seemed like all the Housewives talked prior to the taping and decided they weren't going to fight? Snoozevillle.

This was really at play last night during the painfully bad Jersey Shore reunion. I don't want to talk badly about host Julissa Bermudez, but there are better teleprompter readers at the Jane Barbisol School for Television Presentation in Oakland Park, Florida. The lines they gave her to read—dropping all the show's catch phrases from GTL to gorilla juice head—were cringeworthy. And the canned banter? It was so bad Bruce Vilanch died just so he could roll over in his grave. And they kept calling the cast members over to the couch like it was some sort of talk show. "I'd like to welcome my guest, Vinny!" No, you're not welcoming him, Julissa. He's been sitting across from you talking the whole time. What sort of charade is this? The thing had a laugh track for Christ's sake.

Crackhead Claims To Have Saved Some Fat Girl's Life -- Twice!

‘The Expendables 2′ Set For August 17, 2012 Release

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The sequel to Sylvester Stallone‘s surprise hit, The Expendables, has yet to lock down a director, but at least its got a release date. Lionsgate just announced that The Expendables 2, written by David Agosto and Ken Kaufman, will explode into theaters on August 17, 2012. It’ll go head to head with another huge action sequel that comes out the week before: G.I. Joe 2, directed by Jon Chu. Read more after the break.
Since the script for The Expendables 2 is currently being written, there’s no word on who could return, who might be a new addition to the cast or what exactly is going to happen. We do know that Stallone isn’t going to direct this one, though, and that he’s been looking at directors to replace himself
If we’re going to speculate however, Stallone started a rumor a few months back that Bruce Willis could return as a super villain and we know that Arnold Schwarzenegger has been eying new projects so I’d be willing to be he returns in a larger role. That seems like the logical jump off point, doesn’t it? Those two characters – Willis and Schwarzenegger – were both so glossed over in the first film that explaining why they are so important could not only be a nice place to start the sequel but give the first film more context. Not that context is what the first film needed more of. What it could have used was more action and less mundane character moments.
As much as I disliked the first Expendables, I’m confident it’s a formula that can work and maybe with Stallone strictly in front of the camera, it will. We’ll find out next August.

Actors testing for “The Seventh Son” include Sam Claflin, Imogen Poots & Felicity Jones

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Another day, another high profile role every young actor in Hollywood chomping at the bits for. The two male leads of “The Hunger Games” are still up for grabs but another project is hot on its heels and testing some of the hottest rising talent for its two leads.“The Seventh Son” already has Oscar winner Jeff Bridges attached to play an aging wizard with Julianne Moore being eyed for the role of a witch, but the two teenage roles are crucial as well. Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Lawrence had been mentioned for the project several months back but it’s unlikely either will sign on now.

Variety reports that Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are currently screen testing and assessing chemistry between several up and coming young actors, including Sam Claflin, Caleb Landry-Jones and James Frecheville for the character of Tom Ward, and Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones, Alicia Vikander, Gabrielle Wild and Dianna Agron for the role of Alice.

Formerly titled “The Spook’s Apprentice” or “The Last Apprentice”, the film will be directed by Sergei Bodrov and is adapted by Max Borenstein from Joseph Delaney’s young adult series about “a 13-year-old who’s the seventh son of a seventh son and learns about wizardry from a forbidding spook.” The story takes place in the 1700′s and judging by the selection of actors testing, the 13-year-old will be aged up quite a bit for the big screen.

Madonna May Be Cutting Ties with Kabbalah

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Madonna has been a devoted and vocal proponent of Kabbalah, a set of teachings associated with the mystical aspect of Rabbinic Judaism, since 1996. In 2006, she collaborated with the Los Angeles-based Kabbalah Centre to create the Raising Malawi Organization, which provided aid to the impoverished African nation.

But now the organization has collapsed, the Kabbalah Centre faces an IRS investigation and Madonna's association with Kabbalah's most respected leaders may be strained at best.

According to the NYPost's Page Six, the Kabbalah Centre's Karen Berg emailed members of the organization Thursday writing, "It is especially painful and disappointing that there appears to be a small group of individuals who are trying to discredit The Kabbalah Centre. We consider all our students to be part of our family—including those who have now turned against us."

"In sharing Kabbalah with the world for the last 40 years, we learned the many ways chaos and darkness can manifest themselves ... We understand that the darkest part of night is just before the dawn."

It sounds like Madonna might be readying to cut some ties.

I Need This in My Life Now - Trailer for 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' To Feature Semi-Nude Ryan Gosling

Warner Bros. showed footage from their 2011 lineup on the last day of CinemaCon, including the first look at "Crazy, Stupid, Love." The romantic comedy stars Steve Carell as a man who learns his wife (played by Julianne Moore) has cheated on him. Also starring is Ryan Gosling as a smooth-talking ladies' man who Carell's character hires to help him meet women. You can read a full description of the trailer at the source, but perhaps the most interesting tidbit seems to be that Warners is banking on some semi-nude Gosling to help sell the film.

In one scene, the two are in a locker room with Gosling naked, his lower torso blocked by Carell, who says, "Can you put on some pants?" and Gosling points down saying "Is this bothering you?" The trailer also features another scene where Gosling takes off his shirt to show a six-pack to a character played by Emma Stone, to which she proclaims, "Are you kidding me? It looks like you've been photoshopped!"

No word yet on when exactly the trailer will debut, but I'm sure everyone will be keeping their eye out for screencaps. "Crazy, Stupid, Love." is set to hit theatres on July 29th.


This will be me in the theatre when this trailer comes on.


A nose is a nose, is it not?
People need to open their eyes and realize that the celebrities they idolize have been manufactured. They have teams of professionals to make them look the way they do. Women and girls set themselves up for disaster and low self esteem when they compare themselves to actresses and models and set standards for themselves that are practically impossible to achieve. Most actresses are NOT natural beauties... they get processed through the factory. Women and girls should stop idolizing people who pay for their looks.

A subtle change in the nose makes a big difference and launches careers. When an actress wants to become famous, she conforms and gets a dainty little button nose. The idea seems to be, if you look like the Hollywood ideal, then you'll get cast in bigger movies. Talent or lack of talent is irrelevant, of course. This is the Hollywood standard.
