Chely Wright Gets Engaged to Girlfriend Lauren Blitzer

Country crooner Chely Wright and girlfriend Lauren Blitzer are getting hitched, a rep for the star confirms to UsMagazine.com.

The "Shut Up and Drive" singer, 40, met the GLBT Civil Rights activist doing volunteer work. Now the pair plan to wed in Connecticut in late summer. "You are the most beautiful women I have ever met," Blitzer tweeted to Wright Tuesday.

The engagement comes less than a year after Wright came out. For years she kept her sexuality a secret fearing rejection from the country music community.

When fellow country star John Rich confronted her about gay rumors in 2005, she lied. "John said, 'Hey, you've got to hit this gay thing head on, you're not gay are you? If you are, people won't have it. It's sick, it's deviant; it's unacceptable to country music fans'" she recalled on the Today show last year. "I lied, and I knew I had gone from not talking about it to, 'Now I'm a liar.'"

Of finally coming out last May, "it feels incredible," she said. "I feel as if it's my birthday."

Joe Wright “Waiting On” Saoirse Ronan & James McAvoy To Confirm For ‘Anna Karenina’

‘Hanna’ Director Says Benedict Cumberbatch & Kelly Macdonald Have Joined The Cast

While director Joe Wright has his teenage-assassin flick “Hanna” ready to kick some ass in theaters this weekend, he’s already got his eye on his next project, an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s classic “Anna Karenina.” There has been plenty of movement in recent weeks on the project. He’s already got longtime collaborator Keira Knightley on board, and Aaron Johnson and Jude Law are also vying for roles. In addition, Saoirse Ronan was also rumored and we had been hearing about the possibility of James McAvoy as well. And it looks like they weren’t just idle whispers.

We caught up with the director this week to chat about “Hanna” and we couldn’t help but ask about “Anna Karenina” and the always forthwright helmer confirmed some of the names above, but tossed in a couple of new ones and revealed that he’s waiting to hear back from Ronan and McAvoy.

“Keira’s confirmed, Jude Law’s confirmed, Aaron Johnson’s confirmed, Kelly Macdonald‘s confirmed, Benedict Cumberbatch is confirmed. I’m still waiting on Saorise and James,” Wright said to us.

Daniel Tosh makes surprise visit to UCF

Comedian and UCF alumnus Daniel Tosh was spotted strolling on campus with his dog on Tuesday, attracting a swirl of students around the Reflecting Pond.

Tosh updated his Twitter page around 5 p.m., saying, "Meet me at the reflecting pond. If that's still there,"

He is rumored to be giving a speech at the University of Florida tomorrow and seemed to be on a visit to his former school since he was in town.

He tweeted: "im here in orlando and all the memories are rushing back, most of them involve jnco jeans," and "time to see if my dog can get into UCF."

"Our friend posted a picture of him on Facebook" Daniella Suyos, an undeclared freshman, said.

"Yeah, we walked from all the way across campus to see him. We were next in line [for a picture]," Julie Trinh, a freshman industrial engineering major, said.

Tosh stood around the Reflecting Pond until he was escorted out by a friend.

If This Bitch Gets Sold Into White Slavery Again, I'm Done: Maggie Grace Returns for 'Taken 2'

Deadline is reporting that Maggie Grace has completed her deal and will return in the sequel to 2009's surprise U.S. box office hit "Taken." The original film, which followed an ex-CIA agent played by Liam Neeson as he journeyed to Europe to track down his kidnapped teenage daughter (Grace), was released in the states nearly a year after its worldwide debut and went on to gross almost $150 million domestically. No word on plot details yet, but Oliver Megaton ("Transporter 3") will direct from a script by the original's writers, Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. The "Taken" sequel almost didn't come together, as producers had trouble getting Neeson to commit to a start date, but the film is now expected to begin production either near year's end or in early 2012. Grace, who was also a regular during the first two seasons of ABC's "Lost," will next be seen as the vampire Irina in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn."


I hope she's going to be a CIA agent or something bad-ass and help her dad in this movie, because if she gets kidnapped again, it's going to be like

Jacob Lusk performs "Man in the Mirror" on American Idol, and apparently hates America

Jacob Lusk took to the "American Idol" Top 9 stage to perform Michael Jackson's hit "Man in the Mirror." He had some weird comments about America needing to make a change, because if he doesn't advance, it won't be his fault: "It'll be because everybody in America wasn't ready to look at themselves in the mirror."

Wait, what?  It's not like he's ever been in any danger.

But anyway, as a performance it was another solid outing by Jacob. He reined in the gospel sound in the beginning and then busted it out at the end, very nice build.

However, the greatly esteemed Arizona Republic thought otherwise, claiming Lusk lost the "undecided voter" with his critical comments about the country ("Jacob Lusk hates America!" was the dramatic title of their review). Top music critic Ed Mesley called the performance Lusk's "corniest yet," adding that Lusk

[worked] the stage like a big purple dinosaur while playing up the sappiness of the original with no trace of the vulnerability that made it work for Michael Jackson, whose man in the mirror never would have worn an outfit that unflattering.

Wow, someone's panties are all in a bunch! Let this be a warning to you, Lusk. Don't ever diss Amurrikah, the greatest, best country God has ever given man on the face of the earth, or you'll lose Ed Mesley's vote! It's very important!

Anyway. What do you think, "Idol" fans? How did Jacob do? Do you think America needs to look in the mirror and vote for Jacob?

Film - The Old Guard

Oscar-deserving BAMF lands (second unit) directing job on "The Hobbit"

British actor Andy Serkis has been handed a huge honour on the set of the Lord Of The Rings prequel, The Hobbit, in New Zealand - moviemaker Peter Jackson has made him his second unit director.

The star, who shot to fame as Gollum in the Lord of The Rings trilogy and will reprise the role in The Hobbit, will oversee select location work on Jackson's two upcoming films.

Serkis tells The Hollywood Reporter that Jackson hired him because he understood the material and the director's vision.

Serkis says, "There was this email out of the blue. It was a fantastic surprise."

The new role is sure to give the actor's directing career a big boost - he hopes to take charge of his first feature film after wrapping work on The Hobbit films.

Yay, that's awesome. I love him so very, very much. Has anyone else seen Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll or Longford? Amazing shit.

Life + Times = New Jay-Z Lifestyle Web Site.

Who better to create a "lifestyle" Web site than Mr. White Louis Boat Shoes, Jay-Z?

Dubbed Life+Times, the intriguing new site covers all the dinner-party topics: art, technology, music, sports, and even leisure. Shoot, Jigga even has his own section, the aptly-named "Jay’s," which currently displays a pic of an epic sunset with the title "Peace GOD" emblazoned above. It is strangely Zen. And over in the "About" section, Jay lays out his mission statement for the site: "I want to make the extraordinary, ordinary."

But it’s not all about Jay — far it, from actually. A YouTube clip of UConn’s Kemba Walker’s game-winning moment over Villanova and an article detailing the importance of the "floater" shot can be found in the "Sports" section. Meanwhile, "Art+Design" shows you how to shave like a baller, featuring kits ranging in prices from $800 to $1,600. And if you’ve been looking for the latest info on the new Rolls Royce Ghost, you’re covered: just click on "Technology," to learn more about it (for example, its starting price is a meager $245,000!)

Life + Times also features content like Q&As with French fashion bloggers, profiles on celebrity chefs, and features on Parisian beatmakers. And while the whole thing is very impressive, we can't help thinking that the site could be so much more. So, with all due respect to Jay, here are 10 certifiably HOV articles we'd like to see featured in the coming weeks.

FC Bieberlona

Justin Bieber packed the Palau Sant Jordi for his concert on Wednesday, despite it being on the same day as Barça v Shakhtar, and watched them train today after admitting that he is a fan of the team.

The 17 year old Canadian even donned the team’s second strip and appeared on the pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva, kicking the ball around and even joining in with a quick game with some of the players once it was over.

In that game, Justin Bieber, Thiago and Benja played against one of the singer’s friends, Bojan and Fontàs. All played into the same goal defended by Rubén Miño, and Bieber showed surprisingly decent skills with his left foot.

While he is happy enough being a part of the hit series, the 24-year-old actor admitted to Access Hollywood at the Spring 2011 Oxygen upfronts in New York that he is open to the idea of a Warblers spin-off.

Asked for his opinion, the singer-songwriter said, "Hey, I'm just happy to be invited to the party. A spin-off, whatever they want, I'm happy where I am." He added, "I think Blaine serves a really cool function in the grander scheme of 'Glee' so I don't think we need to focus particularly - you know, but if they want to do it, hey, I'm down! Whatever they want."

LeBron James's Mother Arrested in Miami

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

LeBron James's mother, Gloria, was arrested early Thursday after an alleged altercation at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.

"There was an incident involving Mrs. Gloria James and an employee of our valet parking provider while she was exiting the hotel early Thursday morning," a spokesperson for Fontainebleau Miami Beach, said in a statement. (Lebron, meanwhile, had a game that night.)

According to a source on the scene, Gloria and some girlfriends came to party at club LIV at the Fontainebleau, where she was being "sweet as pie" during the the night out. When it came time to leave around 5 a.m., a security guard escorted her to the valet area to collect her car. The escort was not because she was behaving badly, the source says, but because it's a Fontainebleau policy to provide their VIP guests with an escort.

"When Gloria went to get in her car, she said she couldn't find her keys which she was told were in the car," the source tells PEOPLE. "She got angry quickly and swung her bag at the valet person who brought the car."

But her aim was off, and Gloria missed the valet with her bag, the source says, so she slapped his face a minute later. That's when, the source says, the police were called, and Gloria was taken into custody early Thursday morning.

The Miami Beach Police Department processed James and charged her with simple battery and disorderly intoxication. The Miami Herald first reported that she would likely face a misdemeanor assault charge.

The Herald also says Gloria James has been in trouble with the law before, having faced a DUI charge in Ohio in 2006.

Gloria raised LeBron, 26, an NBA star, as a single mother. He sports a "Queen James" tattoo in her honor and has described her as a strong-willed woman who kept him humble in the wake of his super stardom.

"She doesn't hold her tongue," he told GQ last year. "If she sees something that she believes isn't right or is right, she's going to speak about it."


Lauren Conrad show intro blocked by Viacom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lauren Conrad's intro to her cancelled reality show has now been blocked by MTV's parent company, Viacom, citing it was due to copyright grounds.

Lauren's stop-motion animated intro was just released two weeks ago with an overwhelming response from LC fans and curious viewers of what could've been.

Not only is it blocked on YouTube where it first surfaced, but it's also been removed from Angela + Ithyle's website, the company that created Lauren's intro.

It looks like Viacom is laying the hammer down on Lauren Conrad, or any cultural influence that Lauren left on MTV plus pop culture as well.

Viacom/MTV is trying desparately to get LC fans to move on by force-feeding MTV's current programming down people throats, along with preserving the potency of The Hills.

Plus, Lauren Conrad's cancelled show would've been a threat not only to the MTV agenda, but to the behemoths that are now the regressing culture of fashion, and that annoying Kim Kardashian. Not even Snooki could've done this much damage in a short amount of time.

Lindsay Lohan Wants to Work, Not to Talk

Last night at Don Hill's, we ran into Lindsay Lohan at The Peggy Siegal Company's after-party for Ceremony. Lohan's been in the news lately for trying to clean up her act and her career post-rehab; rumors have her attached to a Charles Manson biopic and even considering a name change. After having us booted from the VIP section, then apologizing for it, she consented to one question. We asked four.

What's the most frustrating misconception about you?
That I don't want to focus on my career, because that's all I want to do. I love working, and it's all I want to do. I just think people should stop being afraid to give me a chance, because I'm in a better space now. I can amount up to what they expect, and more.

Do you think people still think you're in "a bad space"?

Do you consider yourself a feminist?
... no?

Why not?
[Smiling.] I said one question.


i feel like she's really determined to make a comeback. we should all support Lindsay!

New 'Hangover 2' Trailer Is Too Hot For MPAA

Like many, we were a bit concerned about the first extended trailer for this summer's "The Hangover Part II," not because it didn't look funny, exactly, but because it looked so much like the original film that the mystery -- one of the best parts of the first film -- would be gone. Director Todd Phillips must have seen some of the reaction, because he made sure everyone knew that the trailer was too PG-13 to show what the movie was really about.

Charlie Sheen Names Mila Kunis As His Ideal 'Goddess' Number Three; Reveals His Plans To Woo Her

It's Mila Kunis' lucky day! Or not...

In his Wednesday night performance of "My Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option" live stage show at the Palace Theater in Columbus, Ohio, Charlie Sheen revealed he'd like to add a brunette to his harem of goddesses - and not just any old brunette - Charlie wants none other than a certain "Black Swan" beauty.

"Mila Kunis. I mean, debate me, right?" he told the adoring crowd regarding which female he'd like to add to his existing goddess duo of Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly. "And here's the good news: My goddesses have already f***ing approved [Mila]... she's pre-approved."

"Two is the ideal number and now you're talking about potentially a third?" moderator Joey Scoleri, who also acts as manager/tour producer, asked Charlie.

"Come on, man. A warlock can, you know, manage so many goddesses," Charlie told the cheering crowd. "I tried three, I tried f***ing three - it doesn't work.

"I would have great tolerance for many items missing provided it involves Mila f***ing Kunis," he continued. "Who wouldn't? If Mila Kunis is stealing your sh*t because you can't pay attention to her, you're still f***ing winning. You're still winning at that moment."

And, as usual, the eccentric actor already has a plan for wooing his latest object of desire.

"I have tremendous faith in the young Mila Kunis -- I'm going to go on her Facebook page and discover her 'likes' and I'm going to buy them all," Charlie revealed. "And then she can come steal them! Super f***ing hot thief!

"Mila, please, we have a warehouse full of your favorite sh*t for you to come steal-- in Sherman Oaks," he added.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Charlie's live show got off to a rocky start in Detroit, Mich., on Saturday night as the disappointed crowd booed and heckled Charlie, and many audience members shouted "refund."

The former "Two and a Half Men" star continued his tour despite the dismal opening, and was far better received on the second night stop in Chicago, Ill.

By night three, Charlie seemed to be back on the "winning" track, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd in Cleveland, Ohio.

That may be the last thing the crew needs that week as the school year winds down and their anthropology final looms. Shirley notices a slight pain, which quickly escalates into full-blown labor.

"It's not about one epic fight that turns into a Greek tragedy," she says. "It's a series of things. Positive, negative, dramatic, fun. It's our best season yet."

2. New Housewife on the block Cindy Barshop fits right in with the New York City six. And as Barshop tells Us, she felt no pressure to fill the void left by Bethenny Frankel, who exited the series to headline her own spin-off. "I didn't feel like I was filling someone's spot," Barshop says. "I felt like I was joining an eclectic group of girls and I was going to see what happened. The biggest challenge was that there was no handbook for how to join these girls. Usually with relationships it takes a while, but in this situation I had to do it quickly."

3. In the wake of her "Scary Island" experience, look for Kelly Bensimon to sit back and play peacekeeper as her fellow 'wives go wild. "I don't like to take sides," Bensimon tells Us. "There isn't really one [dramatic] moment [this season]. It's real relationships with people clashing over real things. It's like 'You hurt me, I'm mad at you, now fix it.'"

Metro Announces Lady Gaga as Global Guest Editor-in-Chief

Metro, the world's largest global newspaper, today announced that international pop superstar Lady Gaga will be Global Guest Editor-in-Chief for all May 17 editions of Metro, ahead of her highly anticipated Born This Way worldwide album release May 23. In her role as Global Guest Editor-in-Chief, Lady Gaga will highlight issues surrounding equality and individuality, select stories and provide her comments on the breaking news of the day. Lady Gaga will edit Metro's editions in 20 countries from the London office of Metro World News, Metro's central news desk.

"We're thrilled to have Lady Gaga take the helm of our newspapers for the day! Together with Lady Gaga, Metro World News and our local teams will produce a one-of-a-kind newspaper on May 17," said Maggie Samways, Executive Vice President and Global Editor-in-Chief. "Lady Gaga is an extraordinary artistic force, so I'm confident that the edition will reflect her personality: creative, inspiring -- and surprising!"

As part of the Global Guest Editorship, Metro will also run a competition where one lucky reader will be chosen to serve as Lady Gaga's editorial assistant in London. The contest is open to all Metro readers and Gaga fans, and will challenge readers to share what makes them "Born This Way," and to identify what issues of equality affect them.

"Let's see how fans would define what 'Born This Way' is for them," says Lady Gaga. "I say I was born to be brave. That's part of my mission in life. I was born to follow my artistic visions. Look into yourself. Are you born to be brave?"

"A collaboration between the world's biggest pop star today and the largest newspaper is a dynamic way to together engage shared group of young monsters -- sorry, readers -- on important issues," said Christian Quarles, Vice President and Global Marketing Director. "This cooperation is unparalleled, and to be sure our readers are aware and engaged, Metro will roll out a promotional advertising campaign that will reach over 37 million readers around the globe."

to catch a thief

Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief is being remade. I can't.

The more I learn about Hollywood studio execs, the less I would like to know. Nothing is sacred anymore. Hollywood has already remade a few of Alfred Hitchock classics and now comes word they are going ahead with a remake of the Cary Grant/Grace Kelly classic To Catch a Thief. And it’s being re-tooled by the screenwriter of Good Luck Chuck no less! Are those the muffled sounds of screams I hear?!

Way back in 2004, Paramount was hot on the trail of remaking the 1955 release that starred Cary Grant as an American expat on the French Riviera who falls for a wealthy American, played by Grace Kelly, as a rash of jewel thefts breaks out. At that time, the studio wanted Todd Komarnicki (Perfect Stranger) to rewrite the project that would leave most of the original story intact - a reformed jewel thief scrambles to clear his reputation while being framed for a series of elaborate robberies from the super-rich- but change the setting to Miami, a former hot spot location for movie shoots.

Thank God for small miracles that the project stalled and sat on the shelf. That is until someone decided to dust off the idea again. Speaking with Moviehole, screenwriter Josh Stolberg (who also wrote Piranha 3D) updated the status of this remake:

Defense Lawyer Claims Michael Jackson Killed Himself Over Financial Stress

The defense lawyer for Conrad Murray, the physician accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, has claimed that the King of Pop accidentally killed himself out of despair brought on by his considerable financial problems. Edward Chernoff presented this theory yesterday during a pretrial hearing in Los Angeles, carefully avoiding the word "suicide" but implying that his fatal overdose of sedatives was self-inflicted.

Odd Future’s Manager, Christian Clancy, Speaks

Tyler the Creator and Odd Future have a massive industry buzz at the moment. What’s intriguing about it is how quickly this independent hip hop group seemed to go from almost underground obscurity to rippin’ sell out shows and gracing magazine covers.

Christian Clancy, now Odd Future’s manager, ran the marketing department at Interscope back in the day. Christian has been labeled as the scientific “man behind the curtain” responsible for building on the foundation this group established and putting it in overdrive. The first project he’d ever worked on, back at Interscope, was The Marshall Mathers LP. So he knows a thing or two about a thing or two. Check out this video clip to get some info about his background and his connection with this fascinating indie hip hop group.

'America's Best Dance Crew' Returns Tonight

There are a whole lot of dance shows on TV, but only one has the explosive entertainment value of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, which returns tonight at 10pm for season 6. The show always brings innovative, hip-hop dance crews together and which makes for some of the most entertaining television. It's basically like a full hour of the Tabitha and Napoleon routines from So You Think You Can Dance without any of that boring Viennese Waltz stuff in between.

Season 6 of America's Best Dance Crew also has something else in common with SYTYCD: Dominic Sandoval. The hip-hop specialist, SYTYCD All-Star (you may remember him as the one who couldn't stop flirting with Cat Deeley) and former ABDC champion in season 3 with Quest Crew, is taking over for Omarion as a judge. He joins other judges Lil Mama and J.C. Chasez, plus host Mario Lopez.

Gwyneth Paltrow is an asshole: COOKBOOK EDITION!!

Eater pulled the very "best" lines from Gwyneth's new cookbook My Father's Daughter, wherein Gwynnie states loud and proud:

[Image via sexy, sexy Gabe at Videogum]

1) "One year I was given a birthday present I'll never forget — a cooking lesson from Jamie Oliver."
2) "Through this process my father and daughter had unwittingly taught me the importance of balance. Could I use some butter and cheese and eggs in my cooking without going down some kind of hippie shame spiral? Yes. Of course I could."
3) "The stove is really the epicenter of my house — I am never far away from it and most of the time there is something atop it, simmering away for my family."
4) "When I was twenty-one, a friend gave me a book called Diet for a New America by John Robbins, which exposed the brutal practices of American factory farms. That, coupled with a lecture from Leonardo DiCaprio (when he was nineteen and I was twenty-one) about how such animals are kept and processed, made me lose my desire for factory farm pork and beef right there."
5) On Vegenaise: "My most often-used and beloved ingredient. It can be found at most grocery stores and all health food stores—unfortunately not yet in London. Regular mayo is fine and works, but Vegenaise is a healthier alternative.
6) "I grew up going to the island of Nantucket (off the coast of Massachusetts) at the end of every summer."
7) "I'm not sure how healthy bacon is in general, but I know it's incredibly delicious."
8) "I basically love anything that comes in a hot dog bun... except hot dogs (sorry, Dad)."
9) "One cold wintry day in London, I was dreaming about salad niçoise—one of my favorites."
10) "I love corn so much I tried to grow it one summer in the garden. The raccoons loved it even more."
11) "I had my first bowl of gazpacho when I was fifteen in Spain, and the impression it made was a lasting one."
12) "During the strict macrobiotic chapter of my life, I ate miso soup every day for breakfast and sometimes with dinner as well."
13) "One evening when I had my wood-burning stove going I realized I hadn't thought of dessert."
14) "I first had a version of this at a Japanese monastery during a silent retreat—don't ask, it's a long story."
15) "We've got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden—a luxury, I know, but it's one of the best investments I've ever made."
"When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat."

Does Rihanna Really Need to Work This Hard?

Rihanna always seems to be putting out new music; she just wrapped one tour and is about to embark on another. Why does she need to work so much?

Most pop tarts are much more ruthless than their candy-colored weaves would allow you to believe. They want to work until every last tween has been assimilated; hence the thriving practice of shooting up the talent with B-12 shots to prevent sudden collapse. However, there's a reason why specific singers like Rihanna may be avoiding a vacation...

...brutal competition. In the pop music business, it's standard for a new talent to work for at least three years straight before taking any kind of break--just to fend off all the other pop tartlets who want that same crown. In fact, three years is considered the standard for any emerging pop diva. (Between her first solo release and her ascension to film stardom in Dreamgirls, Beyonc worked nearly nonstop for almost exactly three years. And there's a reason why relative newcomer Lady Gaga nearly collapsed during a New Zealand performance last year; she's been working like an animal since her debut studio album came out--less than three years ago.)

Showtime Bares All on New Show 'Gigolos'

It often seems that there are no topics reality TV won't cover.

Bisexual twin sisters looking for love? Check. Little people making chocolate? Yup. Blonde girls faking internships and getting drunk? You betcha.

And now, Showtime has come forward with their piece de resistance, a show about straight male gigolos.

The aptly-titled 'Gigolos' premiered last night and included requisite amounts of drinking, dancing and doing the deed, but these men aren't just trying to get down and get out. They're principled.

In an incredibly depressing yet heartfelt confession, lady-pleaser Stephen said, "I'm just looking for a love like everyone else."

Jim Parrack promises shocking 'True Blood'


Jim Parrack has promised that the fourth season of True Blood is the "most shocking" yet.

Parrack, who plays Hoyt, admitted that he cannot give away too many details about what is coming up in the show.

"[Executive producer] Alan [Ball] just debriefed us last week and said, 'Be very, very careful'," he told New York Magazine. "So there's not much I can say about what actually happens."

However, he added: "This is the most shocking season yet. The things that happen with the relationships between people and creatures are so unpredictable and severe. It's wild."

Parrack also joked that he has not had to film any nude scenes yet.

"There are certain people with a certain quality of physique," he said. "Why not get those people naked instead? And so they do."

True Blood will return for its fourth season on June 26 at 9pm on HBO in the US. In the UK, FX will air the show's first three seasons from April 18 at 11pm.

Robert Pattinson Elle interview

How to explain the phenomenon of Rob Pattinson? One could focus on his looks (Byronic, smoldering, perfect), zeroing in on the cheekbones (razor-sharp, perfect), blue eyes (mysterious, a whole Facebook page dedicated to them, perfect), and that hair (tousled, lustrous, finger lickin’).

Another route is to try to make sense of his Twilight superfans, the squealing girls who camp out for up to a week in hopes of merely getting an autograph, or who ask for a bite on their already-scabby, bloodied necks. Some Twilighters even wonder if he’s really a vampire, as they obsess about his offscreen relationship with Kristen Stewart. (Here’s a thought: Being human, they may have slept together a few times but probably really are just good friends.)

Hugh Jackman offered role in "Snow White and the Huntsman"

: Sensing a possible opening with Hugh Jackman because The Wolverine lost its director and a plan to shoot in Japan turned precarious, Universal Pictures has offered Jackman the huntsman role in Snow White and the Huntsman. The Rupert Sanders-directed film has Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron ready to star. Also, I've heard Universal is in talks with Hossein Amini to come aboard and do some script work on a project slated to begin production mid-September.

Whether Jackman accepts is unclear. Jackman would obviously have to be paid a premium to pump up the star power of a film that will  reach theaters after its rival, Relativity Media's The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. That film has Julia Roberts playing the evil queen, but unproven thesps Armie Hammer and Lily Collins in the leads. Clearly, Jackman's priority is his signature  razor-clawed X-Men mutant hero. He has been very hands on developing The Wolverine with screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, and he himself drafted Darren Aronofsky, who exited earlier this month. Jackman and the studio are just getting started on finding a replacement. I've heard names like Duncan Jones, director of the well-reviewed Source Code, and David Slade, the Twilight Saga: Eclipse helmer who was in the mix before Aronofsky got hired.

Mark Hoppus Says Blink-182 Are 'Working Very Hard' On New Album

Backing up drummer Travis Barker's recent claims, the bassist maintains that Blink's long-awaited new album will hit stores this summer.

Back in February, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker told MTV News that his band's long-in-the-works album would finally be finished in "June or July," an announcement that was greeted with much joy — and skepticism — from fans who have seemingly been waiting forever to hear new music from the trio.

Because, truth be told, they've heard talk like this before ... in fact, at this point, the project carries with it a timeline that stretches all the way back to February 2009 — when Blink-182 announced that they were not only reuniting, but "in the studio writing and recording a new album" — and has included supposed release dates in 2010 and 2011.

But now, it really, truly seems like the still-untitled album is entering the home stretch. Not only did Mark Hoppus post a brand-new studio clip on his Facebook page late Tuesday, but when MTV News spoke to the bassist last week — back when Blink-182 were still in the hunt for the Musical March Madness championship — he backed up Barker's claims of a summer release. For real.

'The Borgias' premiere: Praying Cesare has more time for sex (and not with his sister)

Was I the only one hoping for more sex in The Borgias‘ two hour premiere? Yes, the new Showtime drama centers on Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons), a cardinal who bribes his way to the papacy in 1492, and the pope must be seen to be chaste. But even though he’s no longer sharing the bed of his longtime mistress Vanozza (Joanne Whalley), with whom he has four children, he now has a tunnel leading from the Vatican to his new mistress, Giulia Farnese (Lotte Verbeek). Let’s see him use it more than once for a horizontal variation on the upside down Spider-Man kiss.

Rodrigo’s son Juan (David Oakes), now head of the papal armies, apparently has a thing for brothels, which is promising. But his faux bravado just isn’t sexy. We want the real thing, and so it falls to Cesare (François Arnaud), a reluctant man of the cloth who’s already proven he will kill to protect his father and family and who made his entrance underneath a naked beauty. My fear is that Cesare will become so engrossed in all the delicious, deadly scheming required of him that he won’t have time to partake in the sins of the flesh. And SPOILER ALERT: I’ve fast-forwarded through next week’s episode, and he does not have sex once. He just invades the personal space of his sister Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) again in a way that makes me feel both uncomfortable and guilty (because if it’s a choice between nothing or that odd sexual tension with 14-year-old Lucrezia, well … ewww). A happier SPOILER ALERT: Fortunately, in the April 17 episode, Cesare meets a woman at Lucrezia’s wedding who wants to be “liberated” from her marriage. They only share a dance, but I suspect we’ll be seeing more of her.

What did you think of The Borgias? Has the tale of the original crime family, which is said to have inspired Machiavelli’s The Prince and Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, lured you in? Do you agree that Cesare must be a lover and a fighter? How sad are you that his taste-testing monkey has already died? And did you find yourself wondering if badass Micheletto (Sean Harris) is what Charlie Sheen imagines when he refers to himself as a Vatican assassin?

Gaga to Portray Mary Magdalene in Judas Music Video

Lady Gaga is ready to tell her version of the Bible in her "Judas" video, which recently wrapped production in L.A. MTV News caught up with the video's co-director and Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, to talk about the clip as well as her new E! show "The Dance Scene," debuting Sunday.

"I will tell you now, first off, I'm Christian, and my career is evidence of God in my life, and I think that most people are already thinking that Gaga and the blasphemy and they're premeditating the approach and I think they'll be very shocked to find out how huge and really groundbreaking the message is and how freeing the message is for all the right reasons," she said. "And it's really going to shock the world."

The cast includes some big-name cameos as well, including Norman Reedus as Judas. "He was so prolific," she declared of his performance, adding that the video is "badass" and that Gaga will play Mary Magdalene.

Cher on her music:

"She calls her sound 'swag pop', but that doesn't even come close to describing the furious energy of what she's been working on. Yes, she's still rapping, faster and more aggressively, and she's fed in a lot of urban influences: some tracks have a southern stride, some take cues from UK hip hop, one even has a huge squelchy Dubstep bassline. But it's all got kind of ingenious, princessy pop edge - think of soaring chorus, petulant spoken asides and single refrains that hark back to the rhythm and melodies of nursery rhymes.

The suit alleges she "failed to return the jewelry or return any telephone calls or email messages." A spokesperson for Hilton had no comment. Sounds about right.

The day after I first saw the Clash, Feb. 18, 1979, many of the records I had played incessantly while growing up seemed suddenly inessential and somehow the enemy. I didn't think twice about saying goodbye to many of these records. Things had changed and I was moving on.

Coby has definitely been a welcome addition to the White Collar cast as burned agent Jesse Porter. He admitted last year to DigitalAirwaves that he knew it would be hard to initially win over fans:

“The fans have had … their Burn Notice the way they like their Burn Notice for the last three years and why mess with it? I knew I was jumping on to a moving train and I was going to have to learn quick and figure out what was going on.”

Lindsay Lohan dating wealthy hotelier?

Lindsay Lohan was spotted cozying up to wealthy hotelier Vikram Chatwal.

According to the spies, the starlet was spotted with the soon-to-be bachelor at Top of the Standard, reports the New York Post.

Chatwal - who is divorcing his actress wife, Priya Sachdev - flew the Machete star into the city on his private jet and has been putting her up in the penthouse of his Chatwal Hotel on West 44th Street.

The pair has repeatedly been seen together all over town. Sources close to Chatwal confirmed he's separated from Sachdev, that he recently broke up with model Esther Canadas and has been spending time with Lohan.

Lohan and Chatwal turned up at Don Hill's for the after-party for Uma Thurman's movie Ceremony, where the pair kept it low-key with owner Nur Khan.

But a source close to Lohan insisted, "They have a friendship and a business relationship, and that is it."

The therapist is in on "Pretty Little Liars."

PopWrap broke the news that "Mystic Pizza" and "Shag" (What up, Pudge?!) star Annabeth Gish will be joining ABC Family's hit show when it returns for its second season in June. Gish will be playing Anne Sullivan, a therapist assigned to speak with each PLL due to all the Ian-related drama in the finale.

When we spoke with "PLL's" executive producer Marlene King post-finale, she teased the therapist storyline and Anne's role in the girls' lives: "Their parents get together and force them to see a therapist to deal with their issues about Alison and this unhealthy obsession with Ian. The therapist is going to play a large role in the summer season and the therapist is going to be someone they think about being honest about 'A' with."

Knowing "PLL," we're pretty sure Anne Sullivan will end up having some secrets of her own, so we're thinking it's not the smartest move for the girls to tell her about "A." Silly little liars.

"I had never impregnated anyone before, so I didn't really realize what they teach you in health class is actually true – that's all it takes," McBride, 34, joked. "It's amazing."

The Your Highness star and wife Gia Ruiz are expecting a son – and a well-endowed one at that, according to the actor.

"We've been told it's either a three-legged girl or a very well-hung boy," McBride said with a laugh. "We either have a marathon runner or a porn star."

Tina Fey Agonized over Having Second Child


In those restless hours she couldn't sleep, Tina Fey debated in her mind whether she should have a second child, the question soon tormenting her in the daytime, until she couldn't take it anymore.

During a visit to her gynecologist, she broke down.

"I went for my annual checkup and, tired of carrying this anxiety around, burst into tears the moment she said hello," the Emmy winner, 40, writes in her new memoir Bossypants. "I laid it all out for her, and the main thing I took away from our conversation was the kind of simple observation that only an impartial third party can provide: 'Either way, everything will be fine.' "

The 30 Rock star revealed during Wednesday's taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show what her decision ultimately was: She is now five months' pregnant.

The 20 Most Exciting Pilots of the Upcoming TV Season


 Pilot season is upon us, with upwards of 80 new series being filmed for the five major networks. Not nearly all of them will make it to air next fall; some because they're just no good, many others because they don't fit the networks needs, tone, or audience. We've taken a close look at all the pilots in production, talked to insiders, and read the scripts to suss out the twenty most exciting and intriguing ones, and then handicapped their chances of success. On the list you'll find much to look forward to, including hipster chicks, stewardesses, Lost alums, gospel choirs, magical cops, NYPD, Playboy bunnies, and, of course, James van der Beek. And since no honest survey of any pilot season would be complete without some skepticism, we've also included the five pilots we're most excited about for all the wrong reasons. (Poe, the detective! Don Johnson, the aging hairdresser! Bosom Buddies, the sequel!) Take a look.

Homophobic Backlash After Toronto Raptors' Leandro Barbosa and Reggie Evans Hold Hands

The Toronto Raptors snapped a six-game losing streak with a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday. Guard Leandro Barbosa had some 14 points ... should be reason to celebrate, right?

In a light-hearted moment, Barbosa took the hand of teammate Reggie Evans enroute to the locker room. The innoucous image has caused a "no homo" gay panic backlash across the 'net.

Hundreds of gay-baiting comments were left on YouTube and other sites. YouTube commenting is now disabled but  OutSports captured some of the flavor: "How romantic…ha, faggs." "Reggie Evans is GAY" "Not only does [head coach] jay triano have to deal with barnani and calderon but these fags has well! its a miracle they even won 21 games!"

The backlash against the ballers is reminiscent of the January 2008 University of Louisville incident. The image of two Louisvile players embracing produced hundreds of gay panic comments.  source 1, 2

'The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide': See Bella in Her Wedding Dress


Bella’s getting married! Twilight‘s human-turned-vampire Bella Swan walks down the aisle in Breaking Dawn, and in Stephanie Meyer’s new book, The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, we get a sneak peek at what the bride-to-be might look like on her wedding day. EW.com has two exclusive images from the tome, on shelves April 12, which offers fans new material like character profiles, genealogical charts, maps and more to supplement the four volumes in the savory series. The guide features images by several illustrators, but this particular drawing was done by Young Kim, who also did sketches for the first Twilight graphic novel. Breaking Dawn Part 1 is due out in theaters on Nov. 18, and we recently spotted the movie’s stars filming wedding scenes on location in Canada. Perhaps Kristen Stewart will find herself sporting a “beautiful” dress similar to this ethereal creation? Or will she go the high-fashion route?

Tell us: What do you think of the wedding dress sketch?

Showtime Greenlights 'House of Lies,' 'Homeland'

Showtime has given series orders for its two pilots.

House of Lies
, starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, and Homeland, toplined by Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, have been given 12-episode orders by new Showtime entertainment president David Nevins.

“On the heels of successfully launching our four freshman series in the last 8 months, we’re excited to introduce the next wave of Showtime shows,” said Nevins. “Homeland and House of Lies are audacious in both their concept and their casting. They build upon the network’s successful pedigree and expand the definition of what a Showtime series can be.”

, a half-hour comedy created by Matthew Carnahan, revolves around a successful and cutthroat consultant (Cheadle) who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his way with and for his clients.

, a psychological thriller from Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Gideon Raff, tells the story of a CIA officer (Danes) battling her own demons and who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of a U.S. soldier (Lewis) was a setup.

Both series will begin production this summer.

Showtime recently launched historical drama The Borgias last weekend and is coming off successful runs of freshmen series Shameless and Episodes, both of which have been renewed for second seasons. The pay cabler debuts its U.S. run of Secret Diary of a Call Girl and new docu-series Gigolos on Thursday.



Lionsgate is Pissed; Sends Cease & Desist Letter to Blog that Reviewed "The Hunger Games" Script

Keen-eyed readers of this website (which had better be all of you) may remember reading a post yesterday that contained our take on what we believed to be the official Hunger Games movie script. You may have even commented! For that we thank you, as ever, with imaginary champ cans and cupcakes.

We took the post down today.

Last night, a person claiming to represent Lionsgate Films, Inc, the movie studio which is producing the Hunger Games films, left a comment on that post asking us to cease and desist. They were quickly shamed and mocked, because honestly, who leaves a Cease and Desist letter as a comment on a blog? Are law schools not teaching an Internet 101 class? They really should, if for no other reason than to direct copyright lawyers to photos of lolcats. Even the toughest lawyer needs pictures of cats and cheeseburgers to brighten his or her day.

But I digress. That person, Liat Cohen, then got with the 2000s and emailed us a Cease and Desist letter instead. Let’s all learn about the law together, shall we?
