Goddess JoJo Performs "Boy Without A Heart" For Grammy U Students




JoJo rocks the red carpet in an orange dress at the 2011 Do Something Awards kick-off event held at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on Monday night (May 23) in New York City.

The 20-year-old singer tweeted after attending the event, “Had a blast @ the @dosomething event 2nite & I am so inspired by all the candidates that were there. Thank u 4 having me. I Love U Guys! xo”

Earlier in the day, JoJo also performed two songs off of her upcoming album, Jumping Trains, at Grammy U.

One fan tweeted, “@JoJoistheway murdered her performance of #JumpingTrains today at the GrammyU In NY! The world better prepare for this hurricane of talent!”



Love the mixtape and this is one of the best songs on it. She killllled it live. Stunning, girl.

Children's Services Visits Mariah Carey



Social workers from the LA County Department of Children and Family Services will arrive at Mariah Carey's house any moment to conduct a formal interview with the singer -- after receiving an anonymous complaint that she drank a beer while breast feeding ... TMZ has learned.

DCFS launched the investigation after someone complained Mariah drank a Guinness in the hospital after giving birth to her twins about a month ago. We're told DCFS social workers will ask Mariah about the widely reported incident and interview others in the house as well.

The investigation is curious because hospital workers were closely monitoring Mariah and fully saw what was going on in her room. Sources tell us someone from the hospital told Mariah it would be beneficial to drink a dark beer -- like a Guinness -- to assist her in lactating.

We're told Mariah took the advice and drank a Guinness and in no way hid what she was doing from hospital staff -- assuming it was fine to do.

Several people connected with DCFS are privately critical of the agency for honing in on anonymous tips against celebrities ... and devoting "extensive resources" when the agency should be looking at serious cases of abuse.

Jose Canseco's (drunken?) Tweets to Lady Gaga


Oh, posts about Jose Canseco's Twitter feed, I wish I knew how to quit you.

On each occasion that I write about the ex-ballplayer's odd 14o-character dispatches — whether they tell his side of the story in his twin brother boxing switch or claim he'll play in the majors again or simply threaten the physical well-being of his followers — I swear it'll be the last time I dip into such an easily accessible well.

But then Canseco opens another dimension to the medium that's so mind-bendingly awesome — like, say, propose marriage to the freak pop star of the moment — and it becomes impossible to resist.
So let's get to the part where he creepily suggested holy matrimony to Lady Gaga from the floor of an Arizona casino the other night, shall we?

David O. Russell Drops Out of "Uncharted" film, thank the Maker.

 
David O. Russell, the acclaimed director of The Fighter and Three Kings whose visions of the Uncharted video game series riled up fans of the PlayStation 3 franchise, is no longer attached to an Uncharted movie, Variety reports.

The Hollywood trade publication states that Russell left the film over "creative differences" and that Sony's Columbia Pictures studio is looking for a new writer.

We don't know what those creative differences are, but gaming fans may want to believe that they could be about Russell's vision for an Uncharted movie having little to do with the fiction of the games that star an in-over-his-head everyman, Nathan Drake, trying to hunt treasure while flirting with attractive women and hanging on to many a precarious ledge.

Earlier this year, Russell had told MTV that he wanted an Uncharted movie to be about "a crime family that metes out justice in the world of art and antiquities ... They're like the Sopranos in some ways, but they have great taste, and they have a sense of justice."

He had pictured Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake and Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci in supporting roles.

There's no indication about whether Russell's departure will alter casting plans or even the notion that the movie will differ greatly from the fiction of the games. We'll see.

It’s a game made for a movie adaptation (primarily because it’s a highly enjoyable rip-off of the original Indiana Jones films), where the game was made to run solely on Sony’s console (Playstation), the movie’s being produced by Sony’s film company (Columbia Pictures), and the creators of Uncharted are fucking obsessed craftsmen who’d-if interviews where their eyes shine with adoration for the franchise are a good indication-probably adapt it for free.

How do they keep fucking this up? Feel free to use this as a discussion question, btw. Or just talk about your experiences with Uncharted, who should play hotass Nathan Drake, etc.

P.S. Mark Wahlberg? For a Mal Reynolds (Firefly) meets Indiana Jones style character? Are you fucking with me, Columbia? :/

Korean Anchorwoman Song Ji Sun commits suicide over love rejection



On May 23rd, MBC Plus Sports anchorwoman Song Ji Sun committed suicide by jumping from her 19th floor apartment.

Reports read, “Song Ji Sun attempted to commit suicide at 1:44 PM KST by jumping out of her 19th floor Seocho-dong officetel. Authorities were immediately called, and she was rushed to the emergency room.”

Seocho police have confirmed that she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Netizens are speculating the cause to be the recent scandal that she was swept in with baseball player Im Tae Hoon. Song Ji Sun had announced that she had been dating the Doosan Bears player for the past year and six months, but the statement was denied by Im Tae Hoon himself.

On the 7th, she had written, “If you cannot take me to you, please at least give me strength. My heart is in such pain, I am already on my third sleeping pill.”

Her last post written on the 21st read, “I am steering clear of the internet lately. My words… I am so sorry. I’m not that good with computers so I don’t know how to delete my account. I’d first like to tweet my apology. I’m so sorry, but really, my Cyworld isn’t the truth. I’ll reveal the truth soon.”

Netizens commented, “She should’ve thought more…”, and “Our society has once again pushed another person off of a cliff.”

Wilson Phillips talk 'Bridesmaids' cameo




After two hours of unexpected emotional upheaval, even more unexpected intestinal evacuation and some of the decade's biggest belly laughs, "Bridesmaids" sends audiences out on a high note thanks to a surprise cameo from Wilson Phillips and an rocking performance of "Hold On!"

But how exactly did Carnie Wilson, Chyna Phillips and Wendy Williams land this cush comedy gig? "They called us -- it was as simple as that," Carnie tells PopWrap. In addition to getting their name back out into the public sphere, Carnie admits that saying yes was a no-brainer because "these producers have made some of my favorite movies so we knew it would be a smart thing to be involved with. But we had no idea how funny the movie was going to be."

A fact that truly caught Carnie by surprise as (over)shares with PopWrap, "when [Melissa McCarthy's character] sh** in that sink – I peed in my pants. I know that’s gross, but I pissed myself."

They tried to make her go to rehab, and she said OK

 

Who can try to make Amy Winehouse go to rehab and succeed? Her dad.

The singer's rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the 27-year-old singer checked into a rehab clinic on Wednesday as part of an ongoing battle with alcohol addiction.

She "has embarked on a treatment program at the Priory Clinic. She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors' advice," the rep said in a statement.

According to a source close to the singer, it was a move initiated by her father Mitch Winehouse. "Her dad sat her down and said 'I think you're drinking too much again.' So she agreed to go an assessment to stop it becoming a bigger problem."

The singer downed a miniature bottle of Smirnoff vodka on her way to the clinic on Wednesday, "in typical Amy style," said the friend.


Fortunately the singer, who has a series of summer gigs planned in Europe kicking off June 18, took heed to her father's words and checked herself into the clinic. "She's determined, and this is all off her own back," said the source. "It's just a lapse. There are ups and downs on the road, and there have been mostly ups recently. But this is a down and she's done the right thing and gone to rehab."

Musician Coalition Continues to Protest Grammy Category Changes


 
Nekesa Mumbi Moody of the Associated Press is reporting that a coalition of musicians is demanding that the Recording Academy restore more than 30 categories cut from the Grammy Awards, alleging that the reductions unfairly target ethnic music and were done without the input of its thousands of members. A protest was planned Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., at an academy board meeting.

It is part of a campaign by those upset by last month's decision to reduce the Grammy fields, which this year totaled 109, to 78. The academy announced the changes April 6; the move came after a more-than-yearlong examination of the awards structure, the first in the Grammys' 50-plus-year history.

“The Hangover Part II” is an Embarrassing Descent into Racial Stereotypes and Tired Homophobia



By this point it’s been pretty well established that “The Hangover Part II” is a dud. It’s actually kind of embarrassingly bad, given the incredible similarity between the sequel and the original. It’s as if someone took the entire plot of “The Hangover” and grafted it onto the unsuspecting city of Bangkok, down to the slightest narrative detail. Everything has a parallel: they’ve switched the tiger out for a monkey, a missing Justin Bartha for a missing Mason Lee, and Heather Graham for a transgender stripper. It’s more than a little exhausting, all the way up to and through the end credits.

Yet for some reason I find all of this fascinating. How is it that a group of screenwriters can sit down and just replicate their earlier film exactly? Obviously it’s an easy formula to pull in cash, and the movie will probably make a killing this weekend. But somehow that doesn’t seem like a good enough explanation. No one writes a sequel without at least attempting to do something new or different. In a particularly optimistic interview with MTV, director Todd Phillips even compares the two movies to “The Godfather”:

Ciara: "I Feel Sexiest When I'm Nude"

She often hits the red carpet in barely-there dresses and slit-up-to-there gowns (see here and here), so it comes as no surprise that Ciara is completely at ease without any clothes on at all.

"I feel the sexiest when I'm by myself, walking around nude," the 25-year-old R&B singer tells Us Weekly. "I have this new obsession with nudity, it's really weird. It may sound weird, but I just really love embracing the body."

And even though Ciara works out five days a week for an hour with trainer Gunnar Peterson, her goal isn't to be super skinny. "I can lose weight easily and I don't like to do that. I'm not trying to lose and get small. I just want to keep shape and I just want to focus on abs and glutes."

Darren Criss in GQ

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Even before 24-year-old Darren Criss swooped onto Glee this season as Blaine, the charming lead vocalist of rival all-boy band the Warblers, the kid had a cultish following. Granted, they were all musical-theater nerds. Criss's previous claim to fame? Playing Harry Potter in a musical parody that went viral on YouTube. "I never imagined it would be viewed by teenagers in Australia," he says. That kind of stepped-in-it success seems to follow Criss, who—in one short season—swiftly toppled Glee's record for fastest-selling debut singles with his cover of "Teenage Dream" and snagged the Warblers their own album. (Burn, Lea!) And yet all this stuff is the work equivalent of a hot-stone massage for the actor. "It's all very relaxing," he says. "You get a trailer on-set. You get treated really well." To keep it that way, Criss has devised a way to get around incognito: "I don't shave when I'm not working." Not exactly Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, but it'll do.

January Jones Rocks Sexy Lingerie as Mutant Emma Frost in 'X-Men'

For months, websites have been buzzing over rumors that January Jones dons sexy lingerie in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: First Class. THR’s exclusive first photos of her bedroom ensemble puts those rumors to rest—mutant Emma Frost (Jones) looks plenty sultry.
Not that her other costumes are any less sexy. One outfit features Jones wearing a beaded push up bra, modified thigh-high boots (they can be worn outside, but also have the illusion of lacey thigh-highs on top) and a sheer cape with fur trim. Another has her in a simple, curve-hugging leather bodysuit.
First Class director Matthew Vaughn has repeatedly praised First Class costumer designer Samantha Sheldon for capturing the perfect of mix of swinging sixties meets superhero, mixed in with a little bit of James Bond.

Check out more exclusive photos of costumes from the film, and an interview with Sheldon, in next week’s issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

Chyna's Famous Ex -- I WON'T Watch Porn Sequel

TMZ spoke with X-Pac -- real name Sean Waltman -- who tells us, "It saddens me ... but she obviously hasn't progressed very far in life."

As we first reported, Chyna recently struck a deal with Vivid Entertainment to release a brand new porno flick featuring the former Playboy model in some compromising positions with multiple endowed male professionals.

Sean adds, "[Chyna] used to say how low she felt after the first [sex tape] was released ... what does that say about where she's at in life now?"

Sofia Vergara filming The "Three Stooges"



Sofia Vergara is spotted on the set of The Three Stooges in Atlanta’s Stone Mountain Park on Tuesday (May 24). She’s looking a lot better than she did on Monday with all those bruises on her face (pics here).

The Three Stooges will be shot in three 27-minute segments – just like the original television show – and then combined to make a single story. Director Peter Farrelly told Collider earlier this year that they’re trying to keep things as authentic as possible:

“We’re going for spot on Mo, Larry and Curly. Our feeling is that this isn’t a Farrelly version of The Three Stooges. This is The Three Stooges. And, it’s not a biopic, by the way. We’ve written three new episodes. The movie is actually three episodes that go back to back to back. Each one picks up where the other one left off. We want you to look at it and say, ‘It’s Mo, Larry and Curly!,’ so we have very high standards on this route.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Do naht hate da playah, hate da game.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly used to complain that Maria Shriver didn’t have enough sex with him, which seems like a weird reason to make yourself the target of a massive criminal investigation considering she looks like the goddamn Predator. And, yes, you read that right, Maria has spiked mandibles Arnold’s under investigation for allegedly using the California Highway Patrol to help him bang chicks. RadarOnline reports:

    Veteran hotel security officer William Taylor said he witnessed the “Governator” using California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers and vehicles to ferry scantily-clad women in-and-out of his suite at the Sacramento Hyatt Regency where he and wife Maria Shriver often stayed.
    “It makes me very angry just to think of what was going on at that time,” Taylor, who passed a polygraph test about his claims, told the latest edition of the National Enquirer.
    “On three differed occasions after the governor arrived alone at the Hyatt Regency, CHP Dignitary Protection Services arrived in their official vehicles, black Ford Crown Victoria sedans – about one to two hours later with one or two young females.
    “They’d hurriedly escort the women through the service entrance on the second floor parking garage to the elevator that went to the governor’s private wing… the women would usually stay for two to four hours and either leave through the hotel’s main entrance or be driven away by the CHP in the same official vehicles.”


And before everyone jumps in with, “Hey, John Edwards is under investigation, too, commie,” you’re right, he is, but that still doesn’t make either one of them less of a hornball idiot who thought they could get away with it. That said, it’s nice to see Republicans and Democrats finally find some common ground albeit using whatever’s at their disposable to pretend other people are the fathers of their illegitimate love children. I really believe we can find some healing there.

REPUBLICAN: So… sticking your dick in things you shouldn’t is kind of fun, isn’t it?
DEMOCRATS: Yes, I suppose it is.
REPUBLICAN: *sticks out hand* Friends.
DEMOCRATS: *shakes hand* Friends.

Torchwood' scoop: How Starz handles Capt. Jack's love life



As Starz gets ready to unleash Torchwood: Miracle Day this summer, there’s one element of the sci-fi drama that’s not referenced in the trailer. When word first broke of the U.S. network picking up the cult favorite BBC series and changing its setting to Los Angeles, fans worried the show’s immortal bisexual hero, Captain Jack Harkness, would be portrayed differently. According to the show’s cast and showrunner, the new series doesn’t hold back. “I knew they would be true to the show and not change drastically,” says star John Barrowman. “If it was watered down, I wouldn’t have done it. For those people who are our stanch fans, it’s going to have the heart and soul of Torchwood which we’ve always had, plus the energy and excitement of a show that’s bigger and better.”

Jeff Conaway Passed Away.

 
'Grease' actor Jeff Conaway died Friday at age 60, RadarOnline.com reports and The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The news comes just a day after reports that the star would be taken off life support.

Radar calls it "the end a long, sad road of addiction that made him one of Hollywood's cautionary tales." Conaway, known for his roles as Bobby Wheeler on 'Taxi' and T-Bird Kenickie in 1978's iconic 'Grease,' was a New York native who battled substance abuse for much of his career.

Conaway was checked into an LA hospital on May 11. As of May 26, he was reported to have been experiencing no brain activity. A source told Radar that Conaway's feeding tube had been removed as of Thursday afternoon and that "Jeff is in no pain whatsoever."

Conaway rocketed to fame in 1978 with his starring role in 'Grease' and in the same year began a three-year run on 'Taxi.' Roles dried up in the 1980s as his addictions worsened, but Conaway later found steady work on the sci-fi hit 'Babylon 5.'

Conaway, who had no children, was married twice -- once to Olivia Newton-John's sister Rona from 1980 to 1985, and again to Kerri Young in 1990.

In 2008, a disheveled and unhealthy Conaway joined celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky's VH1 show, 'Celebrity Rehab,' to address his addiction to drugs and alcohol. Sadly, his sobriety attempt failed and last year, the actor was injured in a fall while under the influence of OxyContin and methadone.

This time, in May of 2011, it was originally reported that Conaway was hospitalized due to a prescription drug overdose, but Pinsky later insisted the star was suffering from pneumonia and sepsis, a dangerous blood infection. Pinsky tweeted on May 21, "We all need to pray for him. Not doing well today suddenly."

Of his televised problems with addiction, Conaway told THR in 2009, "I think people are just enamored with other people's problems because they have enough of their own, and they want to stop thinking about their own and think about somebody else's for a while. I think that's what television is all about, really."

Earlier this year, Conaway and on-and-off-again girlfriend Victoria Spinoza filed restraining orders against each other. The night before Conaway was hospitalized, Spinoza paid him a visit that ignited controversy within the star's family.

Conaway's sister, Carla Shreve, filed a May 18 restraining order against Spinoza, alleging that after a recent breakup, Conaway feared for his life.

"He had just secured an apartment ... and was calling friends and family anxious to start this part of his life without her," reads Shreve's restraining order request, obtained by PEOPLE.

The magazine calls Conaway's rocky relationship with Spinoza "volatile," noting restraining orders each filed against the other earlier in 2011. Spinoza's friend and spokesperson, Aubry Fisher, tells PEOPLE Spinoza cared for Conaway for seven years and deems the new restraining order "horrible and wrong."

"When Vikki went to visit Jeff in the hospital, she sat by his side," Fisher said, referencing the day before the restraining order went through. "They were in the process of reconciling."

Written Completely On Recycled Toilet Paper: R Kelly's Assistant's Tell-All

Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but they say R. Kelly is a nasty bastard. Although Chris Hansen has long been waiting for Pissy to give him a reason, the former Zorro enthusiast and alleged playground peeping Tom hasn’t been suspected of doing anything that would lead him to giving a private performance of “12 Play” to a big booty bitch named Brandon in prison.
But, there is one man out trying to dig up Robert’s past for profit. In a new book called The Man Behind The Man (sounds inspired by gay porn or Terry McMillan’s marriage), Demetrius Smith Sr. says that R. Kelly married the late Aaliyah because he got her pregnant.
 
Image164 Buzz Notes: R. Kellys Former Personal Assistant Pens Tell All
Urban fiction site Media Take Out posted the following excerpt:

“I think she’s pregnant” he said, in a voice that sounded as if he wanted to burst out in tears. “Oh man, Rob” was all I could say at the time. Derrel McDavid arranged for a car to pick Aaliyah up at O’Hare airport and she had a hotel room available on arrival. This was crazy! How were we going to get through this without causing ill feelings with Barry Hankerson…” and “How you gone marry Aaliyah Rob?” I asked in bitter sadness. I wanted him to relinquish his idea on how that was going to happen.”

Even if this were true, what’s the point in telling everyone now when the po-po could’ve handled this the minute after Aaliyah crooned, “Are you hungry? Do you wanna eat?” on the “Bump & Grind (Remix)?” May Aaliyah’s ghost haunt both the man and the man behind him in their dreams.

The year in TV ratings: Winners, Losers and the power of Snooki

jersey shore Pictures, Images and Photos

Wednesday night marked the official end of the 2010–11 TV season, at least according to the whims of the broadcast networks and ratings-measurement monopoly Nielsen. (While TV these days is a year-round business, with cable and broadcast nets both airing plenty of first-run fare during the summer, the biggest hits still air during the old advertiser-dictated September through May calendar.) So how did your favorite network shows do? Vulture has scoured the Nielsen data to determine which shows soared and which stumbled, along with some other fun facts from the season that was. (Note that data is from Nielsen's most current live plus seven-day DVR viewing figures from September 20 through May 22).

I bolded but for the TL:DR crowd, cable ratings are on the rise, AI and NCIS have like 20 million viewers, Fringe, House and Community have sucky ratings while Bones, NCIS and The Big Bang Theory are the pride of their networks. A bunch of old people watch CBS and annoying teenagers watch the CW.

Hangover Part II: Are Jokes about Ladyboy Boners Transphobic?



If you’re reading this piece you’re about to get molested by some movie spoilers… that means you should stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happens in the middle of The Hangover II… totally serious here…

Okay, you’re still reading, so that means you’re okay with knowing that Ed Helms’s character bareback bottoms for a trans-woman in a Bangkok stripper bar and she totally jizzes inside his formerly 100% hetero rectum.

Here’s what happens next: Ed Helms’s character briefly freaks—admit it, gay, if you woke up next to a straight woman who excitedly told you that you had just done “it” with her you might have a similar reaction—and then adds, in shock, “I made love to a man with boobies.” Later in the film Helms sings a song where one of the lines is “I got fucked in the ass by a girl with a dick.”

Clearly, transpeople deserve to be described as they are, with respectful language and yes, the Helms character fails on that count. But it’s what happens around those statements that tips the scales toward the side of this all being good for transpeople:

1. They cast an actual trans-woman (Yasmin Lee, star of porn titles like “Bitch Got Balls” and “She-Male Strokers 12″) and the camera doesn’t flinch from her full frontal nudity, penis and all.

2. Her character is clearly the one running the show. She informs Helms’s character that he liked the sex they had, the simultaneously orgasmed and that he shouldn’t be surprised because, after all, “they call it Bangkok, not Bangkunt.” Furthermore, her character is never in any danger; no one wants to retaliate. In a world where transpeople are seemingly routinely being attacked in what most people would consider reasonably safe locations—parking lots, the local McDonalds—an image of an assertive transwoman taking control of a sexual situation is pretty powerful stuff.

3. Every other character in the movie—in fact, the movie itself—laughs it off as just one more crazy episode in a wild, drunken night.

Obviously it’s all in the eye of the beholder, but it feels like, in the long run, that a film like Boys Don’t Cry might heighten sensitivity and awareness, but it’s going to be the otherwise raunchy, politically incorrect comedies that push culture forward for the masses, transwoman-dick-inch by inch.

Release Date for Neill Blomkamp’s ELYSIUM Moved Up to March 1st, 2013


Sony has moved the release date for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium one week to March 1st, 2013, per Box Office Mojo. The film was originally set to open on the 8th, the same day as Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful directed by Sam Raimi. This seems like a smart move, as the burgeoning cast of Raimi’s fantasy prequel to The Wizard of Oz will most likely do some serious business. Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Wagner Moura, and Sharlto Copley. Details on the plot are very much under wraps, but it’s said to take place in the future on another planet, and will be in the social allegory vein much like District 9. Foster plays the head of the alien planet.

Good, now just forward the release date up by 6 months and we have ourselves a deal.

Deadline Updates us on the Cheryl Saga: Friday Update!



FRIDAY UPDATE: Here's why there's still no announcement about Fox's decision to replace UK pop singer Cheryl Cole as a judge on the American version of The X Factor after they saw her Los Angeles auditions: it's not done yet. To avoid looking like he beat up Britain's sweetheart, executive producer Simon Cowell is trying to make sure that Cole can go back to being a judge on the UK version of his show which starts filming next Wednesday. But those judges are already set and that talent competition has been thrown into chaos as well. Now the lawyers are trying to look for loopholes so Cole can save face. She's already returned to Britain along with Cowell. If they can't, then there's still the very slim possibility that she could stay on board the U.S. series while waiting-in-the-wings replacement Nicole Schezinger will stay as co-host. C'mon, do any of us even care? Except for the fact that this is really starting to look like a big fat Simon screw-up before his show even gets on the air.

Source

Seriously? This is really fucking stupid. Tell us the real reason why they want her replaced? Its making not only Simon Cowell look stupid, but the Fox Network and The X Factor Producers. Just keep her on the fucking panel and let her have her season. If the audience doesn't respond then get rid of her, but theres about a 2% chance that'd even happen considering Cheryl is an extremely personable person.

“Dark Girls” Documentary Trailer



The trailer for “Dark Girls,” a new documentary about black women and their skin tone, had me in tears by the end. “Dark Girls” examines racism and colorism both inside and outside of the black community and the societal devaluing of dark-skinned blacks (cough, Psychology Today, cough) dating back to slavery.

Film to Premier in October at the International Black Film Festival in Nashville.

Moby attacks Britney Spears and women in music.



Moby may have become a bona fide pop star when his landmark album 'Play' sold over 10 million copies back in 2000, but when it comes to the music of current chart-toppers like Ke$ha, Rihanna, Britney Spears and the Black Eyed Peas, he just can't relate.

In fact, he thinks "music" is the wrong word for what they're putting out.

"It's fun, but I don't think of it as music," he says. "It's manufactured. I appreciate it as pop culture phenomenon and some of the songs I like if I hear them in a shopping mall or something, but it doesn't function as music for me."

His new album just dropped and mentioning Britney is the best way for any artist to drum up publicity tbh. Back to the 90s, Moby.

Johnny Weir Named L.A. Gay Pride Grand Marshal



Pop Star on Ice and Skating With the Stars judge Johnny Weir has been named grand marshal of the 2011 L.A. Gay Pride Parade.

The openly gay (omg!!) three-time U.S. figure skating champion and star of Be Good Johnny Weir has been an advocate for gay rights and will oversee the June 12 parade as it travels along Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, Calif.

"Johnny lives a life with a defined purpose, is dedicated to helping young people and is not afraid to be himself, sometimes not always an easy thing for a world-class athlete,” said Christopher Street West board president Rodney Scott.

Alexandra Stan flashes vag with wardrobe malfunction in Milan



Romanian pop star Alexandra Stan has exposed an intimate area during a concert held in Milan. She does not even have a year's worth of experience abroad but is already dazzling audiences worldwide. Besides voice, Alexandra Stan impresses the audience with sexy outfits, and sometimes very revealing outfits. This is what happened at the recent concert in Milan. Extremely short shorts caused Alexandra Stan to flash her intimate area to the party, and she did not seem to be wearing panties. In Italy, Alexandra Stan is on the top of the chart with her single "Mr. Saxobeat", charting higher than some big hits like "Judas" (Lady GaGa) and "On The Floor" (Jennifer Lopez).

Dexter filming pics!

First look at Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter filming ‘Dexter’ Season 6 in Long Beach, CA




One of our readers, Kohl, was on the set of Dexter in Long Beach, CA yesterday where she spotted Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter shooting a scene outside a local preschool.

She told us that she was there to try to get a few pictures of Desmond Harrington but after crossing the street to get closer to the set she was asked to leave. It looks like they might be trying to keep this season’s plot tightly under wraps!

 

She also mentioned that the signs around set read “Smuggler”, instead of “Dexter”, which is unusual because Smuggler is a production company usually associated with commercial shoots, something to keep in mind for anyone set stalking this summer.

Though the scream at the end of the season’s first teaser trailer (and internet buzz) lead us to believe that Dex and Deb may have some struggles in their relationship this season, based on Kohl’s photos below it seems like things are good (so far) between the on-screen brother and sister. But anything can still happen, after all it is only episode 1!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Has Cancer In The First Trailer For '50/50'


Though the film isn't due out until September, a few weeks ago I was invited to a screening of the film 50/50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Anjelica Huston. After the credits began to roll, I was certain that I had just watched one of the best films that will be released in 2011. Utterly real, heartbreaking, hilarious and filled with incredible performances, I began to wish that the film was a summer release just because it would allow me it again sooner. While I'll likely still have to wait a few more months before I get to see it again, at the very least I can watch the trailer over and over again.

Directed by Jonathan Levine, the story centers on Adam (Gordon-Levitt), a young man living a great life. He has a job that he's passionate about, works with his best friend (Rogen) and has a stunningly beautiful girlfriend (Howard). Then he goes to the doctor and finds out that he has a rare for of spinal cancer that has left him with a 50% chance of survival. This world totally rocked by the news, not only does he have to deal with the effects of his disease, but also how it affects everyone in his life.

Gucci Mane Arrested for Pushing Woman Out of Car After She Declined his Advances

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rapper Gucci Mane was arrested in Atlanta this morning for allegedly pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle back in January
... TMZ has confirmed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Gucci was routinely checking in with his probation officer ... when the P.O. noticed the rapper had an active warrant out for his arrest for allegedly pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle back in January.

Gucci was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge.

Gucci -- who is still on probation stemming from a 2005 aggravated assault conviction -- could be in even more trouble ... because officials tell us the new allegations could constitute a probation violation.


The rapper is currently being held on $5,000 bond until he faces a judge tomorrow.

Blind Item Debunked






Lawyers for "X-Men" director Matthew Vaughn, husband of Claudia Schiffer, described an online story suggesting he had a relationship with the movie's star, January Jones, and could be the father of her unborn child as an "absolute lie." Powerhouse attorney Martin Singer told us there was no truth in the E! report that Schiffer's husband had a "very close relationship" on-set with Jones, who last month announced she was pregnant, but has not confirmed the identity of the daddy.

I doubt there is any real ~scandal surrounding the paternity of the baby, I'm just shocked the Blind Item actually gained so much attention that it forced a statement to be made.

The father of hip hop has died...

Gil Scott-Heron, Poet And Musician, Has Died




Gil Scott-Heron died Friday afternoon in New York, his book publisher reported. He was 62. The influential poet and musician is often credited with being one of the progenitors of hip-hop, and is best known for the spoken-word piece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."

Scott-Heron was born in Chicago in 1949. He spent his early years in Jackson, Tenn., attended high school in The Bronx, and spent time at Pennsylvania's Lincoln University before settling in Manhattan. His recording career began in 1970 with the album Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, which featured the first version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." The track has since been referenced and parodied extensively in pop culture.

Scott-Heron continued to record through the 1970s and early '80s, before taking a lengthy hiatus. He briefly returned to the studio for 1994's Spirits. That album featured the track "Message to the Messengers," in which Scott-Heron cautions the hip-hop generation that arose in his absence to use its newfound power responsibly. He has been cited as a key influence by many in the hip-hop community — such as rapper-producer Kanye West, who closed his platinum-selling 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with a track built around a sample of Scott-Heron's voice.

Hobbit In Charge to play a "saucy gay", so basically just himself




Elijah Wood has joined the cast of Celeste and Jesse Forever, the romantic comedy starring Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg, which is being directed by Lee Toland Krieger.

The script, by Jones and Will McCormack, follows a couple (Jones and Samberg) in the midst of a divorce attempting to maintain their friendship while pursuing new relationships.

Wood will play Celeste’s business partner, a metrosexual who tries to be her “saucy gay friend.”

Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina are among the cast members.

Jennifer Todd and Suzanne Todd are producing for Team Todd along with Lee Nelson for Envision Media Arts. The movie was previously set up at Fox Atomic and Overture Films before those companies shuttered.

The casting comes as Wood heads into his first TV series, the offbeat FX comedy Wilfred, which premieres June 23 and runs for 13 episodes. And later this summer the actor reprises his role as Frodo in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and will be voicing a lead in Tron: Uprising, Disney’s animated series due next year.

Wood has a few projects in the can: Sky TV and Syfy’s adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island and the animated tentpole Happy Feet 2, which sees Wood coming back as the voice of Mumble the fleet-footed penguin.

Wood is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
