Treme Preview 2x02 - "Everything I Do Gohn Be Funky"

Also, here's a link to Dave Walker's excellent Treme recap where he details all of the local references. This is a must for non-locals (and locals who can't keep up): "Treme" Explained: Accentuate the Positive

So, what did everyone think of the premiere? I loved it. Can't go wrong with John Boutté singing 3 different times in a single episode.

This is what British people look like when it's hot.

While Londoners might have been enjoying the chance to bask in the spring sunshine, it seems not everybody has got themselves a tan. And among those who have remained pale and interesting in the hot weather is Doctor Who star Matt Smith - who has possibly been spending a bit too long in the Tardis to think about sunbathing.

The 28-year-old did make the most of the sun as temperatures soared in the capital on Saturday, taking a stroll with girlfriend Daisy Lowe and their dog through the London suburb of Primrose Hill.

International Poster for 'The Beaver'

Here’s another new international poster for Mel Gibson’s new movie, The Beaver which, when I saw it, I absolutely fell in love with and can’t wait to see again. It probably won’t be until you’ve seen The Beaver that you’ll understand why! The movie had it’s premiere at SXSW a couple of weeks ago and I was so pleased to be in the audience for the new movie which is both directed and starring Jodie Foster alongside Mel Gibson, Jennifer Lawrence and Anton Yelchin.

Foster introduced the movie stating that it wasn’t a comedy and I can testify to that fact. You’ll start off watching this movie laughing and by the end, you’ll be crying your eyes out. It’s brilliantly acted and excellently directed. You can read Marie’s 5-star review of it here (I concur on the star rating by the way!).

The wise words of Vinny (of Jersey Shore fame)

The Double Standard

Collapse )

A big part of why men are not condemned as much as females for being conspicuous is that a vagina is higher maintenance than a penis.

Many comedians have spoken about how the female tunnel of love is known to be "pretty" and penises are not.
In order for a woman to "get off" she needs all sorts of mechanisms, tongue rotations, speed and penetration levels, candle scents, etc...
But for a man, a few simple strokes and he experiences 5 seconds of bliss.
Men also have more testosterone in their system which increases the eagerness to fornicate while women are more able to practice self control.

These points establish a general reason why women are expected to have sex less than men.

Lindsay Lohan: I'm the Victim of a Witch Hunt!

Lindsay Lohan believes prosecutor Danette Meyers is on a "witch hunt" against her, and is praying the Deputy D,A. makes good on what she asked the judge -- drop out of the case.

Sources in contact with Lindsay tell us ... Lindsay believes she's become a living, breathing press release for Meyers, who is running for L.A. County District Attorney.

There are several flaws in Lindsay's theory. First, Meyers asked Judge Stephanie Sautner Friday to remove her from the case. Since the judge knocked the felony charge down to a misdemeanor, Meyers assumed the case would be transferred to the L.A. City Attorney. But the judge noted the D.A. can still prosecute the case if it wants to ... so Meyer's request was denied.

Second flaw -- Meyers has prosecuted hundreds of big cases in her more than 2 decades as a prosecutor, is extremely well-respected, so she really doesn't need a misdemeanor theft case all that much.

Teen Dad: Baby Mama Got Preggo for MTV Show

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"16 & Pregnant" star Josh Smith says his baby mama PLOTTED to get pregnant just so she could be on the MTV reality show ... this according to court documents.

Smith filed a request for a restraining order against Jennifer Del Rio this week -- stemming from an incident in which she allegedly punched Josh in the face.

In the docs, Smith claims his baby mama is a "compulsive liar" who concocted a diabolical scheme to get pregnant -- allegedly telling him she was knocked up (even though she wasn't) so he wouldn't wear a condom.

Smith explains ... "She was giving me sonogram pictures ... that she claimed was 'our baby' when in actually [sic] it was her friend's sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on 'Sixteen and Pregnant'."

As for the restraining order, Jennifer claims she never attacked Josh ... and has since filed for a restraining order against HIM ... claiming Josh punched himself in the face to set her up so she would go to jail.

The couple is scheduled to be back in court on May 2.

Taylor Lautner for 'Twilight' Spinoff?


Taylor Lautner has revealed that he finds the idea of a Twilight spinoff to be intriguing.

Author Stephenie Meyer recently stated that she would consider writing a further story in the supernatural series about Jacob Black and Renesmee Cullen.
Lautner spoke to MTV News about the possibility of reprising the role of Jacob in a future film adaptation.

"Breaking news to me here, live, on MTV, Josh Horowitz! What's going on?" Lautner answered when asked about the potential movie.

However, the 19-year-old went on to state that he is not opposed to the idea of continuing the Twilight series.

"That would be interesting. Stephenie comes up with the craziest things. I'm sure she could go on. That's a crazy thought," he added.

Lautner recently revealed that he will be emotional at the end of the Twilight films, stating that he will probably cry. The actor, who has previously said that he was unprepared for his Twilight fame, has revealed that he has accepted losing his privacy in order to be a movie star.


Please god, no. ONTD, what do you think of the adventures of Jacob and Renesmee?

Ryan Phillippe Ready To Quit Acting. Awww Hellz No!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ryan Phillippe is burned out.

"I think I'm going to end my acting career," the Bang Bang Club actor recently told the New York Post's Page Six.
He explained, "I'm so introverted. I'm ready to go behind the scenes. I'm 36, but I've been doing this for 20 years."
Indeed, Phillippe got his dramatic start as a teen in the early 90s on the just-cancelled ABC soap One Life to Live.

His first step in quitting life as a Hollywood star? Leaving Hollywood, the town. "It's so hard to go out in L.A. I'm going to move," Phillippe said. "I'm going to spend a third of my year in New York," he added, explaining he's been looking at pads in NYC's SoHo neighborhood.

One of the reasons Phillippe's ready to stop being a celeb? The focus on his busy love life -- his rocky divorce from Reese Witherspoon, his on-again, off-again relationship with Amanda Seyfried, his ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp's pregnancy and more.

"I'm a good guy," he insisted. "I'm not that guy you read about."

Filming for the Twilight series has wrapped, but Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart show no signs of slowing down.
The normally private pair were inseparable at his April 17 NYC premiere of Water for Elephants and shared a rare public smooch as they left the Le Cirque afterparty.

"They had a long, slow kiss," a witness tells the new Us Weekly (on stands now). "You could tell they'd been waiting all night. They were very affectionate."

After all, according to Donna Scott, Pattinson's Water for Elephants costar, "He is madly in love with her!" See more photos of Rob and Kristen making out.
Indeed. Just one week earlier, Pattinson, 24, stood by his girlfriend's side at Stewart's 21st birthday bash (which doubled as the Breaking Dawn wrap party) at Rockwell's Bar & Grill in Vancouver on April 9.

"They held hands, and he kissed her cheek," a source tells Us of the twosome, who were joined by costar Taylor Lautner and his girlfriend, Lily Collins.

And Stewart's gift -- a motorcycle form the cast and crew -- gave Pattinson another chance to dote. "Rob watched as she sat on it to make sure she was OK!" a source says


Smallville Finale First Look: The Wedding of Clark Kent and Lois Lane

The May 13 series finale of Smallville promises major changes for Clark Kent, and not just his transformation into Superman. As seen in this exclusive photo, Clark (Tom Welling) and Lois Lane (Erica Durance) head to the chapel — but there's drama along the way. "It's a very, very long walk down that aisle," teases executive producer Kelly Souders. "There are some good moments, some heart-wrenching moments and some surprising moments at their wedding."

Souders says that "if you keep your eyes open you'll see a few familiar faces" in attendance, including Ollie (Justin Hartley) as the best man and Chloe (Allison Mack) as the matron of honor. "They've always been there for our beloved couple and they will be all the way to the end."

Given that this is the final episode, should viewers be concerned that Clark may not get to kiss the bride and seal the deal? "I think fans will be pleased with how things turn out," Souders says, "but it's never what you expect. I will just say that there are moments directly before and after this photo that, even seeing the footage for the 50th time, I still get a little teary."

Smallville airs Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.

Kevin McHale and Amber Riley on Glee set last week

Kevin McHale and Amber Riley are spotted on the set of their hit Fox series Glee last week in Los Angeles (April 21). Also spotted on set that day were their co-stars Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Heather Morris, Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison, and Jane Lynch. Don’t miss Caught on Set’s Glee page for all the latest on-set pics.

Speaking of Chris Colfer, he was just named by Time as one of the 100 most influential people in the world! How exciting! You can check out his interview here in which he talks about his Golden Globe acceptance speech, the power of Glee, and standing up to bullies. Colfer’s co-star Dianna Agron has a glowing write-up in the issue about him:

“Chris has wanted to be an actor, as he says, ‘since I was an embryo,’ which gave him the determination to say, ‘Yes, I can,’ despite the many who had said no. Chris, 20, lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school. The honesty that he infuses into his Glee character, Kurt, leaves you reeling. Our cast is blessed to hear things like ‘Your character has helped me through this, or helped me do that,’ but none more so than Chris. To witness the power he gives to his audience firsthand? It’s wonderful.”

Freida Pinto Is Average Looking,Says A Bollywood Superstar

Indian Superstar Gulshan Grover,who turned down Irrfan Khan’s role in Slumdog Millionaire to do Hurman Baweja’s Victory(flop), was further enlightened on cinematic matters when he was recently in Los Angeles. During a discussion on apni(our) Freida Pinto, Gulshan blundered when he shrugged her off with a casual, “She’s okay.” The goras(americans)immediately piled on to him and asked him, “Are you all right, man? How can you call Freida okay? She’s hot, man, she’s so sexy!”

A sheepish Gulshan explains, “We have so many Goan girls here who look like Freida that we tend to take them casually.”

If Aishwarya Rai never generated that kind of excitement in the West it’s simply because the fair, light-eyed variety of beauty that we worship in India is a dime a dozen in Hollywood. But the dark and sensuous Freida is an exotic rarity. Seriously, Arshad Warsi’s(Indian Star) wife, Maria Goretti, would sizzle like a Bond girl if only she’d agree to go West for a career.

Britney Spears' 2011 Tour Ticket Prices Raise Eyebrows

The controversy surrounding Britney Spears seems never-ending. If it's not her manic mumblings or rage-induced head shaving, it's her parenting practices, substance use or flavor of the week.

Royal Family urged to support gay marriage

Campaigners will deliver an early wedding card to Prince William and Kate Middleton today calling on them to back a change in the law allowing marriage for same-sex couples.

The giant card, containing their request and a message of best wishes, will be presented outside the gates of Buckingham Palace by supporters of the Equal Love campaign.

They have launched a legal bid to overturn the twin bans on same-sex civil marriages and heterosexual civil partnerships in the UK.

The Association of Research Libraries gives YouTube's Copyright School an F-

I thought this would be interesting to you all since plenty of us have dealt with YouTube taking down our videos or shutting down our accounts. ARL librarians comment on some serious flaws in YouTube's new "Copyright School" video violators are forced to watch if they wish to reactivate their accounts. The primary flaw is YouTube's dismissal of fair use rights.

For a company whose entire business model depends on fair use, Google (parent company of YouTube) doesn’t seem too interested in helping others exercise their fair use rights.

Yesterday YouTube released a video called “Copyright School” and announced a new notice and takedown policy that includes requiring accused infringers to watch the video in order to reactivate their suspended accounts. While some aspects of the new policy (such as softening the prior ‘three strikes and you’re out’ policy) are salutary, the Copyright School video has serious flaws. Most importantly, it seriously short-changes fair use, portraying it as an unreliable legal technicality. Watch it below and then I’ll go through some of its shortcomings.

OMG! Robert & Kristen Reshooting Breaking Dawn in Carribean on 04/22

Robert Pattinson and real-life love Kristen Stewart mark the end of the hugely successful Twilight franchise, shooting the sexy last scenes of the sagas final movie, Breaking Dawn, in the Caribbean. Under cover of darkness, the couple spent nearly three hours in the sea in a secluded cove, shooting hotly-anticipated love scenes between their characters,

Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Stewart showed off her slender frame in a lime green bikini, curiously unfastened at the back, as she strolled down the beach on St Thomas, in the US Virgin Islands, before joining Pattinson in the sea. Armed police patrolled the beach, while a police launch bobbed about in the sea, trying to ensure no one would get a glimpse of the filming, which went on until almost 5am.

Britney Spears Is Not Allowed in the Same Room as Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Britney Spears' tour staff is under strict instruction to keep not just drugs and booze out of Britney's sightline, but also "hot dogs, pizza, and cookie dough ice cream," because apparently Britney has no self-control whatsoever. I like to imagine her inner life as the music video for "Me Against the Music," but instead of a pas de deux with an aggressively crotch-rubbing Madonna, Britney dances the tango around a tub of Ben & Jerry's: "With the taste of your lipids / I'm on a binge / You're toxic, I'm slipping under." Then the ice-cream rips off its lid, and you realize it's actually an apple in disguise! Hungrily, Britney reaches for nature's toothbrush—but then the apple rips off its face, and it is actually Cheetos. Those are her kryptonite! How did they forget to put Cheetos in banned food list in Britney's tour rider?

Dis Posh Bitch


A Buckingham Palace guard has been relieved of his royal wedding day duties after calling Kate Middleton some choice names on Facebook, the UK Press Association reports.

18-year-old Scots Guardsman Cameron Reilly wrote of Catherine and Prince William: "hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a shitty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur".

He also made racist comments and anti-Semitic comments on various personal photos, adds the UKPA, such as: "a was gonae put a few rifles in ma bergan anaw but then a remembered a couldnt fit any in cause a had 2 many paki's scalps in it already" and "is watchin a massive jew gathering outside the window at the tower of london!! av never seen so many rabbi's in ma life."

According to the Daily Mail, an anonymous soldier said Reilly is "a big boozer and not what you'd call a thinker. He downs Buckfast fortified wine and likes raucous nights out. He joined Facebook last year and started posting bizarre things. He doesn't engage his brain before he types. These stupid comments could not have come at a worse time for him. Serving at the Royal Wedding is a huge honour. He has been incredibly naive."

UK's Ministry of Defence released a statement, reading in part: "In view of the nature of the allegation, it would not be appropriate for the individual to be on parade for The Royal Wedding." The Scots Guards are slated to stand along the procession route from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Hayden Panettiere at the Premiere of "Klitschko" during Tribeca Film Festival, Apr 24

When it comes to the red carpet, Hayden Panettiere is used to being front and center — but last night (April 24) the big screen beauty played the role of second fiddle.

On hand to lend some support, Hayden hit up the premiere of Klitschko to cheer on the film’s star, her boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko, during the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival at SVA Theater in New York City.

The upcoming documentary explores the rise of six-foot-six Ukrainian brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko who made history in 2008, becoming the first brothers in boxing to hold world titles at the same time.

Meanwhile, Hayden says she wants to take on more grown-up film roles.

The Scream 4 actress confessed that she is tired of playing teenage characters, and wants to pursue projects which allow for more depth and development.

“I’m getting to the age where I don’t want to play high school anymore,” she told Las Vegas magazine. “I feel like I’m finally getting to that place where I can play those in-their-early-20s roles, which are the ones you can really sink your teeth into. I still have to get over that hump of being seen as the cheerleader – and as very, very, young.”

In Memory of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes

Today marks the anniversary of the death of singer/rapper, Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopez of TLC. Most of us are familiar with with Lopez, but here are some interesting facts about her life.

  • TLC was initially called ‘Second Nature’
  • Before her death, she appeared on the singer’s edition of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’
  • Lopes created “Left Eye Productions” to discover new talent. She helped the R&B trio Blaque secure a record deal with Columbia Records.
  • At the time of her death, Lopez was working on an album under Suge Knight’s Tha Row Records.
  • Lopez loved tattoos. The large eagle on her left arm, represented freedom. The number “80″ around the eagle, was Rison’s NFL number. The tattoo of a moon with a face on her foot in reference to Rison’s nickname, Bad Moon. The large tattoo of the name Parron, represented  her late stepbrother, arching over a large tattoo of a pierced heart. Her smallest tattoo was on her left ear and consisted of an arrow pointing to her left over the symbol of an eye, referenced her nickname.
  • Lopez was buried in a casket that had lyrics to ‘Waterfalls’ engraved on it. “Dreams are hopeless aspirations, in hopes of coming true, believe in yourself, the rest is up to me and you.”

RIP Left Eye :( thank you for your music and your kindess

What's NeX-Tina?

Last week I wondered aloud to you all if NBC's "The Voice" could do for Christina Aguilera what Fox's "American Idol" has done for Jennifer Lopez -- ya know, reinvigorate a floundering recording career while simultaneously reminding America why they fell in love with her to begin with.

And judging from early previews of her as a judge/mentor, "The Voice" offers Christina the perfect platform to own up to -- and move beyond -- her past mistakes while also coming across like a fun, bubbly superstar.

With that out of the way, the next logical question is: How will Christina financially capitalize on this resurgence? Cue the new CD chatter!

"For this one, I really want to make a real rooted, heartfelt record. After someone goes through the things that I have, regarding a divorce, there's a lot of emotions that are stirred," she tells USA Today.

"I prove to myself that I'm stronger than just to let things take over me, and take over my head space. I'm very honest with myself in seeing if there are things that I need to change about my life, or if there are things I need to do stepping forward. That's in part why I got the divorce. It's a new beginning for me. It's all positivity for me. I've been through some hard things, but I'm on the up and up. I love to sing. It's what moves me and inspires me. To be able to do that is a gift."

I don't know about you, but I could swear that paragraph is filled with more lyrics and song titles than a thousand teen girl diaries.

DeNiro Continues to Be a Legend, Trump Continues to Show Why He'll Never Ever Ever Be President

Things are getting heated between legendary actor Robert De Niro and Apprentice host/possible presidential candidate/rich person Donald Trump. Over the weekend, the notoriously reserved actor opened up to NBC’s Brian Williams during an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, revealing some uncharacteristically candid opinions about politics.

“I won’t mention any of the certain people on the news in the last couple weeks,” De Niro said, after Williams mentioned how far apart the country has become politically. “But what are we doing? This is crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”

Though the actor didn’t explicitly refer to Trump, Williams countered, ”Any of those people have shows on my network on Sunday night?”

A source who shared the same floor as Jake during his freshman year tells JustJared.com exclusively, “He did share that he identified himself as an aspiring actor at the time.”

In the yearbook, students were asked who they wanted to be like. Jake’s response - Kevin Bacon - was listed by default since he didn’t name a specific person.

Jake attended Columbia for two years before leaving to pursue his film career, breaking out in Homegrown, October Sky, and 2001’s Donnie Darko.

‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ Invited To Open The Venice Film Festival, Fall Release Date In The Works

Film Described As “A Very Serious Oscar Contender”

With the Cannes Film Festival lineup more or less set—there will likely be a few more film announcements in the next couple of weeks as is usually the case—the organizers at the Venice, Toronto, Telluride and other fall film festivals have already been making calls to try and get big-ticket films slotted into their festivals. Among the numerous high-profile films talked about as possibilities for Cannes was Tomas Alfredson‘s highly anticipated “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.” Before the lineup for Cannes was announced, reports circulated that it wasn’t likely to make it as the film was still in the midst of post-production. As expected, a fall premiere is in the works and at least one major film festival has already come calling at least a month ago to land the film.

In an interview with RBR last month (that we stumbled across recently), producer and radio personality Doug Urbanski spilled on the status of the film and when we might get to see it. “We’re in post-production. We’ve been invited to open the Venice Film Festival. We’ll be releasing in the U.K. probably in September. Then we’ll probably release in America in October or November,” he said, before adding one more exciting bit of info: “All of these things will be decided in the next two weeks but I would think that we have a very serious Oscar contender for next year.”

And that awards season talk isn’t too surprising given the talent and source material involved. Featuring a phenomenal cast made up of Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Strong, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham and Kathy Burke, the film is an adaptation of John Le Carre‘s classic spy thriller. Adapted for the screen by the talented Peter Morgan (”The Queen,” “Frost/Nixon”) the story follows a British Intelligence operative whose task is to delve into the world of Cold War espionage and root out a Soviet mole in the Circus, the highest echelon in the British Intelligence Services.

Well, a few weeks have come and gone since this interview and if Urbanski has agreed to take the film to Venice, we likely won’t know for a couple of months, until it’s formally announced. However, kicking off one of the biggest festivals of the year is a rare opportunity and we’d guess there’s a strong possibility of it happening. But for those of us who can’t make it Venice, we’d wager a North American premiere will likely be in the works at either Telluride or TIFF. And we wouldn’t be too surprised if those calls have already been placed. While the Cannes Film Festival may already be boasting a great lineup, just remember, there are still even more great films to come and 2011 is shaping up to be one helluva moviegoing year. And with early talk of Oscars our excitement for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” which was already high, has pretty much been pushed over the top.

McDonald's Fires Employee Who Filmed Brutal Beating Of Baltimore Patron

The McDonald’s employee who stood by and videotaped the beating of a patron at a Maryland restaurant has been fired, according to a statement released this afternoon by the franchise owner.

Vernon Hackett, 22, was canned in the face of a torrent of publicity about the brutal April 18 attack, which Hackett filmed on a cell phone and uploaded to his YouTube channel. The video has prompted widespread criticism of McDonald’s workers who did little to help the victim, Chrissy Lee Polis, a 22-year-old transgendered woman.

Mitchell McPherson, owner of the suburban Baltimore McDonald’s where the beating occurred, said today that, “the crew member who made the video is no longer employed with my organization.” He added, “Appropriate action regarding other employees will take place as warranted.”

As seen below, in Facebook messages yesterday, Hackett, pictured above, acknowledged filming the assault, denied the victim was transgendered, and claimed he had “No Hate For Anybody…No Matter Tha Gender/Race Or Sexual Preference.”

Lilo Sees Dead People. Well, Not Really, But She Will Soon Enough.

Lindsay Lohan, found in violation of probation, is facing the grim reality of 120 hours of community service – emphasis on grim.

The actress, 24, will be picking up trash, emptying trash bins, mopping floors and cleaning windows and restrooms at the L.A. County Department of Coroner's facility.

"She'll be doing basic janitorial work," Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter tells PEOPLE. "She won't be handling any dead bodies but she'll certainly see them."

This won't be Lohan's first visit to the downtown Los Angeles morgue. She previously completed a DUI morgue program following her second drunk-driving conviction 2007.

For those who've been following the buzz surrounding HBO's epic new series "Game of Thrones," based on George R. R. Martin's beloved "A Song of Ice and Fire" fantasy novels, there is a lot going on in this show. In a nutshell, it's about power, politics and sex — with a little fantasy thrown in for good measure.

Speaking to the sexy factor, Emilia Clarke told MTV News back in January that her character's sex scenes were particularly "scary" but that co-star Jason Momoa helped her feel more at ease during some of the more intense moments.

Kelly Osbourne: I'm Not Getting Fat!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Everyone wants to weigh in on Kelly Osbourne's weight.

The 26-year-old actress and reality star told Us Weekly that she's happy with her body, "but for some reason, the media isn't!"

"[The media keeps] writing that I'm getting fat, and I'm not--I'm the same size," she told Us on Sunday at the after party for the documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.

"I work out half an hour a day and just eat what I want and I'm happy, so I don't really care," she said.

After shedding forty pounds, Osbourne told Us in February 2010: "I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that."

The outspoken star said she's accepted "that harsh reality where I woke up and one day realized 'I am my mother!' But...if I could be anyone, I'd be her!"

One thing both women have in common? Their brutal honesty. "What's the point in lying?" Kelly mused. "If you've got skeletons in your closet, some a**hole's gonna dig them out, so just be honest."

Lady GaGa: 'People are trying to destroy me'


Lady GaGa has said that she believes some people are "trying to destroy" her.

The 'Judas' singer explained that she feels like a "loser kid in high school" because of how she is treated.

In the black and white YouTube clip, posted before she went on stage in New York's Madison Square Garden for her Monster Ball Tour show, she sobbed: "I still sometimes feel like a loser. It's crazy, 'cos it's like we're at the Garden, but I still feel like a loser kid in high school.

"Sometimes I still feel like people are trying to destroy me... I cannot be destroyed and I will not be destroyed. And you will never destroy the kingdom that is my fans."

The 25-year-old insisted that she will "fight" to remain successful for the sake of her fans, adding: "I just have to pick my s**t up, pick myself up and tell myself I'm a superstar every morning just so I can get through this day.
I feel like I have to fight. I'm fighting for every kid that's like me, that's felt like I've felt and feels like I still feel."

She added: "I just wanna be a queen but sometimes I just don't feel like one. It's not about being a winner for me anymore, you know. It's about being a winner for them."

The clip was filmed as part of documentary Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden, which will be aired next month.

Former Destiny's Child member Farrah Franklin arrested for disorderly conduct

A former member of now disbanded female group Destiny's Child was arrested for disorderly conduct this weekend.

Farrah Franklin, 29, was taken into custody in the early hours of Saturday morning in the Culver City area of Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

It has been reported that alcohol may have been involved in the incident.

The singer was released hours later on $100 bail.

After only being with Destiny's Child for just five months, Farrah was fired from the all-female group by fellow members Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland in 2000.

The singer did not discover her dismissal until she saw an MTV news report.

Not long after the incident, Knowles explained in an interview that Farrah had missed three major dates.

She also stated that they felt Franklin no longer wanted to be in the group, which lead to her sacking.

Franklin was originally hired by the group in 1999 to be an extra in the music video for their hit song Bills, Bills, Bills.

At the time she was part of a failing group called Jane Doe, but had started to form a close alliance with Beyonce and Rowland.

In December 2000, Knowles's father and group manager Matthew Knowles asked Franklin to join Destiny's Child replacing other members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett.

Franklin appeared in music videos for the hit songs Say My Name and Jumpin' Jumpin', and also contributed backing vocals to the remixes of singles Independent Women Part I, Dot, and Dance with Me.

After leaving Destiny's Child, Franklin began a solo career and also tried her hand at acting.

She starred in a film called The Brewster Project, for which she won a Best Supporting Actress award from the Independent Film Awards.

Farrah is said to be currently shooting an 'untitled' film, and recently revealed she had completed another album, which she is hoping to debut the album this year.

Following her departure, Destiny's Child went on to win several Grammy Awards and selling millions and millions of albums.

The group disbanded in 2006, but both Knowles and Rowlands have gone on to have extremely successful solo careers.

Lindsay Lohan's Wild Life Captured In New Comic Book

Lindsay Lohan's wild lifestyle, dysfunctional family and struggling career are being captured by Bluewater Productions in a new biographical comic book and RadarOnline has the cover!

The comic is titled Infamous: Lindsay Lohan and is set for a September 2011 release, but given the 24-year-old’s latest legal shenanigans, there’s still plenty to be added to the issue.

“Lohan is both a victim of the all-consuming celebrity culture and a perpetrator of bad decisions, lack of self-control and an unhealthy sense of entitlement,” writer Marc Shapiro said.

“This issue can be seen as a tragedy in motion; it’s last chapter has yet to be written.”

According to Shapiro, the 32-page book is not all about the salacious headlines, mug shots and outrageous behavior, but tries to examine the underlying causes of Lohan’s inability to “straighten out her life.”

Are you reading this Lindsay Lohan? Bluewater Publishing has an offer for you.

“If Lohan contacted us right now and wanted us to donate some of the potential profits to a charity of her choosing, we would happily do so,” publisher Darren G. Davis said.

Another face more famous for their off-screen exploits than anything else is Charlie Sheen, who also has a biographic comic book coming out in his likeness in July.

Jordin Spark's ex, Steph Jones, dick pics LEAK!

Jones is the next celeb to be caught with his pants down. According to my boy, Carlton Jordan, a very interesting email accompanied the photos:

"I’m so tired of these wack ass celebs claiming to be innocent and holier than thou. Steph Jones is a typical industry nigga. He was fucking me while he was with Jordin Sparks. I went in his phone while he was in the bathroom and saw their texts. She is definitely not a virgin as she claims to be either because the texts I saw with her telling him she missed him and needed to feel him inside of her are definitely not the words of a virgin. Anyway. I would have kept these to myself but I’m so sick of seeing him pretend to be a saint on twitter that I decided to let the world see what a saint he truly is. His dick is big but he is selfish and doesn’t use it well. He acts like a bitch so it’s hard to really enjoy it."

Potty Mouth Vanessa Hudgens Says, 'I Can Get Very Gangster'


Former Disney star Vanessa Hudgens is set to shock her young fans by confessing she loves cursing and has a "sailor mouth."

The actress shot to fame in 2006 with her role in the "High School Musical" franchise, but she has since been hit with a number of scandals after various photos and film footage of her posing naked or wearing saucy lingerie appeared on the internet.

Hudgens is now set to shock again, with a confession about her love of swearing.

She told U.K. magazine Fabulous, "I've definitely got a wicked side. I have what I call 'sailor mouth'. I can get very gangster at times. I used to be very timid. Now I'm my own person. I don't feel pressure to look a certain way. My weight fluctuates, like any normal girl. If anyone told me to lose weight, I'd say f**k you and walk away."

A Very Potter What? Glee's Sexiest/Most Talented Plans OPRAH Musical, Thinks Queen Naya Has "Pizazz"

Max Adler plays closeted bully Karofsky on Glee, but the actor has a very un-Karofsky-like way of blowing off steam during his downtime on set: He's brainstorming an Oprah Winfrey musical with co-star Chris Colfer.

"I told him I had just been to Vegas to see O, the show at the Bellagio," Adler tells TVGuide.com. "He said that every time he hears about O, he thinks it's some Oprah Winfrey musical. So we started joking about co-writing an Oprah musical — what songs would be in, what the themes would be. We were doing that in between these intense scenes. It's a great way to relieve all the tension and stress."

Olivia Munn (& Alison Pill) In Negotiations For Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

Marisa Tomei Closes In On Female Lead

The female portion of the cast of Aaron Sorkin's HBO pilot is taking shape. Olivia Munn and Alison Pill are in negotiations for supporting roles in the project, while I hear Marisa Tomei is inching closer to committing to play the female lead. Tentatively titled More As This Story Develops, the project centers on cable news anchor Will McCallister (Jeff Daniels), who has his own show, as well as the show's female executive producer and staff. Tomei, repped by CAA and Untitled, is poised to play the executive producer, MacKenzie, for whom producing the news is what she does best and everything else is tied for last place. Pill will play Maggie, an associate producer on the assignment desk. Munn, repped by CAA and Mosaic, will play a sexy financial analyst on the same cable network as McCallister.

Oscar winner Tomei has been one of several actresses considered for MacKenzie and the most heavily pursued by the producers. Said to be a big fan of Sorkin's, she met with him earlier last week and again on Saturday when he attended her off-Broadway play Marie and Bruce. (Among the other contenders for the role, Emily Mortimer had emerged as a frontrunner.) Munn, who stars on NBC's midseason comedy Perfect Couples, was courted for several broadcast pilots this pilot season but opted not do any. She continues to be a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Showand co-stars in the upcoming Miramax movie I Don't Know How She Does It. Tony nominee Pill, repped by WME and Joannie Burstein, already has experience as a regular on an HBO series -- she co-starred on the second season of In Treatment. She recently co-starred in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

The Heroes star is in the movie alongside Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell, and she was instructed to keep quiet the identity of the killer in the film.

And as much as Klitschko tried to get Panettiere to tell him the twist in the plot, she refused.

He told the New York Daily News: 'She never told me who the killer was and what's going on in the movie. I've been asking for all these days and weeks.'

Ellen Barkin Is No Uptown Girl

Ellen Barkin led me up the stairs so I could see her bedroom. She was chatty in the way you’d expect Ellen Barkin to be — sort of tough yet sort of warm, sort of open, sort of closed. We had already talked for more than an hour, and this was a gesture of good will on her part, a way of saying, “Even though you are a reporter and have the ability to ruin my week or month or year with an untoward phrase, I’m going to pre-empt you, rise to the occasion and open my home. I’ll show you more than the living room with the white goatskin rugs and original white leather Eames chairs, the ‘public’ room of my West Village town house.”Collapse )

Blind Item: Which Director dropped the project...

When this famous director dropped out of a high-profile project, there was some speculation that it was due to personal rather than professional reasons. He had broken up with an actress last year, and it was believed that each was taking time off from work to battle over the custody of their child/ren. What isn’t public knowledge is that their breakup was due in large part to his affair with another actress… who became pregnant with his baby. The jury is still out on whether or not any of the three will ever acknowledge the affair and/or the baby's paternity.

My guess..
Director: Darren Aronofsky (the project being Wolverine).
First Actress: Rachel Weisz.
Second Actress: Natalie Portman.

50 Cent doesn’t sugarcoat anything for anybody. In his April/May cover story for VIBE Magazine, the business mogul/rapper didn’t hold anything back as he broke down his rumored relationship with Chelsea Handler …. and the Twitter beef between him and Ciara.

On Chelsea Handler and her confidence:
“I don’t speak to her as much as I did. Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it. I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and fuck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.”

On Twitter beef with Ciara:
“I could care less about trying to attack someone or bring them down in any way. I look at those scenarios like they’re actually trying to attack me. See, even if I have to assume that US Weekly said what you say. I’m sure she didn’t say that. She’s a friend. She’s been a friend. You know? And it’s like, I don’t know what to expect of people. I’ve been surprised a lot. You think you know what to expect out of people but…. I don’t know how I respond to that without being the bad guy.”

Bryan Singer on Nicholas Hoult

After Nicholas Hoult nabbed the demanding role of Beast in X-Men: First Class, he caught the eye of that film's producer, Bryan Singer, and made a strong enough impression that Singer cast him as the lead in his next film Jack the Giant Killer.

Bryan Singer has now revealed some of the reasons he chose Nicholas Hoult for this upcoming motion capture adventure. Here is what he had to say.

"He's a really fine actor, and he also has a charm and an innocence that I noticed when we cast him as Beast. He needed those qualities because in X-Men, he's this excitable scientist who's going through a transformation, and in Jack he's a lovestruck farmboy who also transforms in the movie. He falls for a princess and then goes off to rescue her. It's a very traditional fairytale."
