Nicholas Hoult Post

'X-Men' actor no longer just that boy


British actor Nicholas Hoult is coming of age in his latest movie, X-Men: First Class - the prequel to X-Men (2000) and its follow-ups.

Set for release on Friday, First Class depicts the formation of the X-Men under Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and of the Brotherhood of Mutants - led by Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), aka Magneto.

Hoult co-stars as Hank McCoy, an acrobatic mutant, known as the Beast, with a world-class scientific mind. The actor, 21, is joined by, among others, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven "Mystique" Darkholme, January Jones as Emma "White Queen" Frost, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore and Edi Gathegi as Armando "Darwin" Munoz.

First Class represents the biggest film yet for Hoult, who made a strong impression as Hugh Grant's young pal in About a Boy (2002) before being seen in The Weather Man (2005), on the British series Skins (2007-08), in A Single Man (2009) and in Clash of the Titans (2010).

Amber Rose Retracts VIBE Cover Story


Stop the presses (literally), Amber Rose isn't a fan of her own VIBE cover story. Sharing one half of the publication's "Sexy Issue" with Rick Ross, the former strip pole dancer/video vixen/Wiz Khalifa's wifey, is calling foul ball on the mag citing multiple infractions within the interview that was the subject of many Hip-Hop conversations for the past week.

After reading the interview for the first time, yesterday the blond bombshell aired out her grievances with the magazine on her Twitter page.

Emma Watson Bares Midriff in Sports Bra



Emma Watson shows off her midriff while heading to the gym in a pink sports bra on Sunday (May 29) in Pittsburgh, Penn.

The 21-year-old actress, who carried a Chicken Soup for the Soul book, is in Pittsburgh filming her movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Emma took to her blog recently to clear up rumors about why she is not returning to Brown University next year.

“I felt the need to let you all know the reason I took a semester off from Brown had nothing to do with bullying as the media have been suggesting recently. I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown. This ‘10 points to Gryffindor’ incident never even happened. I feel the need to say this because accusing Brown students of something as serious as bullying and this causing me to leave seems beyond unfair,” Emma wrote.

Geri Halliwell and Boyfriend Henry Beckwith Put on Playful Show on Holiday in South of France



Serial vacationer Geri Halliwell has never looked happier.

The former Spice Girl was spotted larking about at Paloma Beach in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat in the South of France yesterday.

Geri looked trim and toned in a leopard play-suit and her hair was tied half tied up, clearly exposing her hair extensions.

She was spending quality time with boyfriend Henry Beckwith, cousin of socialite Tamara Beckwith and the son of property magnate Sir John Beckwith.

The pair were play fighting, with Henry trying to throw the mother-of-one into the chilly water below. He even picked her up but she refused to let go.

Geri, 38, was so determined not to be thrown in that at one point she nearly pulled Henry's shirt off.


The couple started dating in March 2009, just days after Geri ended her brief engagement to Italian yacht tycoon Fabrizio Politi.

Geri has described Henry as an 'Alpha male' personality and claims this is the reason why the pair have stayed together for so long.

She has said his strong personality means he won't let her push him around and said they have a lot in common and both enjoy being fun, active and playful.

Geri and Henry also went to Monaco Formula One Grand Prix at the Monte Carlo circuit.

More adorable candids at the source.

Michael Fassbender & Zoe Kravitz were pap’d together, they’re still dating



Zoe and Michael worked together on X-Men: First Class, and they announced themselves as a couple at the beginning of this year when Michael was being profiled by Vogue UK. I mean, he didn’t give any quotes or anything, Zoe just showed up in the course of the interview and she and Michael began, like, making out. It kind of broke my heart.

Since then, I’ve been on Fassdong Watch, trying to read body language and celebrity tea leaves to see if Michael was really serious about Zoe. When Zoe and Michael were on X-Men promotional duties last week, they honestly seemed to be avoiding each other and their body language looked kind of “off”. Michael has been working non-stop - and I kind of thought the relationship had gone south. Not so much, according to these photos. Michael and Zoe were pap’d over the weekend, hanging out in NYC, looking couple-y. These are the first photos of them together that I know of, where it’s just the two of them with no buffers. UNBREAK MY HEART.

There are also some more pictures HERE, but, alas, I do not have an account so I couldn't upload them.
EDIT: Supposedly Ben Foster (Zoe's ex, if y'all didn't know) joined them for lunch the same day.

Adele's record boss slams rise of 'faux porn' music

The Know How - The XL Records Story
Over sexualised female pop stars have left Adele’s record label boss feeling ‘queasy’, and he has slammed the ‘faux porn’ music.

Singers such as Rihanna and Christina Aguilera, who have both channelled bondage themes in recent work, have focused on their sexuality over music, he feels.

Leading record executive Richard Russell, who is the founder of label XL Records, says their sexuality has led to ‘boring, crass and unoriginal music’.

Russell told the Guardian: ‘The whole message with [Adele] is that it’s just music, it’s just really good music.

‘There is nothing else. There are no gimmicks, no selling of sexuality. I think in the American market, particularly, they have come to the conclusion that is what you have to do.’


And Adele’s classic style hasn’t hindered her record sales at all, considering her second album, 21, has spent 15 of the last 17 weeks at No 1.

Pop star Lady Gaga has ended Adele's reign on top of the UK album chart.

Gaga's second album Born This Way debuted at number one, bringing an end to 21's sixteen-week domination.

The 25-year-old's new record sold 215,000 copies in its first week, more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

According to BBC News, Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, said: 'I feel so honoured to have the highest first week sales in the UK this year.

'I wrote the album's first single Born This Way in Manchester because I was so inspired by the confidence and bravery characteristic of my fans.'

Mel B falls for Spice reunion hoax!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Mel B was left a little red-faced after a hoaxer posed on Twitter as Geri Halliwell and suggested a Spice Girls reunion tour.
Singer and reality TV star Mel, who is currently Down Under to judge The Australian X Factor, appeared to get excited when GeriHalliwell1, and a message putting forward the idea of a reunion to all the Spice Girls, appeared on the social networking site.
Mel B tweeted: "Whoop whoop hands up for another spice tour!!!!! count me in"
And she added: "Hope the other girls say yes, to spice touring again, to perform spice songs again would be AMAZING, spice fans here we come, fingers crossed."
But it was soon revealed that the Twitter account was fake and it was not really Ginger Spice Geri tweeting.
On learning the news, Mel B wrote: "Ahhhh shoot (the site) got hacked boo hoo! Nearly had my leopard print catsuit on!"
The so-called Geri Halliwell account has now been deleted.
The Spice Girls held a world reunion tour in 2007, ending in Toronto on 26 February 2008.
Jennifer Saunders is currently writing the script for the Spice Girls' musical, Viva Forever, but it is not known if the band will perform together again.

Arctic Monkeys new album stream ~SUCK IT AND SEE~



LISTEN HERE

During a recent interview with the Observer's Barbara Ellen, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner mused over what it was that made his band so special. It was, he concluded, the fact that "whatever it is that makes us sound like us is built into the four of us. Josh [Homme] said it, too: 'Whatever happens, it will always sound like you guys.'"

Like the best bands, from the Beach Boys to the Smiths, Arctic Monkeys have a signature sound that's instantly recognisable whether they're playing their debut album's sticky dancefloor indie or third album Humbug's beefed-up desert rock. It should be no surprise to hear, then, that Suck It and See is a record that only Arctic Monkeys could have made. But is it any good?

Well, for those who thought the band had lost their way with the experimental Humbug, there are plenty of pop melodies to placate you here (often ones with a 60s feel to them). Opener She's Thunderstorms shows their nifty way of surprising the listener with an off-kilter chord change, while later on Turner can be found doing his best Richard Hawley impression: "She's been loop the looping, around my mi-i-i-i-nd." Elsewhere, Piledriver Waltz's pretty guitar lines dissolve into a chorus about having "breakfast at the heartbreak hotel".

The band are still determined to rock out, though, and their evolution into a beefier proposition hasn't stalled. Brick By Brick, the first track the band previewed from the album, came across as a sluggish, pub-rock affair, but the haywire riffing on Library Pictures unleashes a more agile, unpredictable noise.

Alice Braga Joins Neill Blomkamp's Super-Secret Elysium and News on Filming Dates


In the summer of 2009 Neill Blomkamp went from being the unknown South African director who almost got to direct Halo to a genuine phenomenon. His debut feature District 9 was an enormous hit that scored 4 Oscar nominations, of course, but it also felt like the future of sci-fi, a low-budget and ridiculously clever take on the alien invasion genre that proved you only need a smart script and a few great ideas to make sci-fi feel new again. Blomkamp has taken his time choosing his next project, but it doesn't seem unreasonable to hope he'll be revolutionizing the genre again with his next project, Elysium, which finally starts shooting this summer.

Blomkamp has been assembling the cast for months now, with Jodie Foster set to play "a head of state on an alien planet", District 9 Sharlto Copley also playing a major role, and the likes of William Fichtner and Wagner Moura also rounding out the cast. Now Deadline reports that Alice Braga has also joined, though given the secretive nature of the story we of course don't know which role she'll play. Braga and Moura are both Brazilian-born actors, which has me wondering if that will play into the plot somehow, but it seems just as plausible that Blomkamp wants a diverse, international cast. Braga is no stranger to sci-fi, having starred in I Am Legend, Repo Men and Predators all since her breakthrough role in City of God, so even though we have no idea what to expect from Elysium, it seems likely Braga will be on comfortable terrain.

'Depressed' Juanes will take up to 4-year career-break: Ex-manager



The ex-manager for Colombian rock star Juanes said Wednesday that the musician's recently-announced career-break will last around "three or four years" because he is "depressed" and has "personal problems," Spanish news agency EFE reported.

Juanes publicized the termination of his "professional relationship" with Fernan Martinez on Tuesday via Twitter, where he also announced a "STOP" from his music career to spend time with his family and take a necessary "moment of reflection and calm."

Although Juanes declared that he would be "full of energy" for the scheduled tour dates in Spain, Martinez has said that "he will only do these concerts because they could not be canceled."

"Juanes let me know this news, and I respect him and support him in whatever comes hereafter. The truth is that Juanes is retiring not for some months, but for three or four years. With this decision, 60 scheduled concerts have been canceled in several countries," Martinez said.

For 'Chuck' star Zachary Levi, first trip to Speedway brings back memories of grandfather



Collapse )

When actor Zachary Levi showed up for Sunday’s Indianapolis 500, it was his first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

But, Levi, who stars in NBC’s “Chuck” and lives in Los Angeles, has family history at IMS: His late grandfather, Alton Pugh, was one of the track’s famed “yellow shirts” for over 20 years.

Pugh, who lived in Amo, spent more than two decades wearing a canary yellow shirt and directing traffic and race fans at the track.

“Most of security knew him as ‘The Old Man,’ ” said Levi, who added that attending the race’s 100th anniversary celebration was especially meaningful because of his family background.

“It’s pretty crazy,” said Levi, who spent the weekend making appearances as one of the celebs the IndyCar Series’ title sponsor, Izod, hosted. “It’s amazing to hear about the race as a kid.”

Dudes With Long Hair: Yay or Nay? Tim Riggins says Yay



We at Lock & Mane love a well-groomed man. You know we all breathed a major sigh of relief when the recent celebrity facial hair craze died down, but there’s something more troublesome on the horizon. Pretty boys with long hair. The Biebs was an early adopter of this trend but since he’s a mere child we can’t heap all the blame at his little man feet.
We can blame Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady.
We actually had a chance to chat with Fabio wannabe Brady last week at the Robin Hood Foundation Gala in New York . The NFL hottie told us he won’t be cutting his locks any time soon. His wife Gisele shook her head and laughed. We cried inside upon hearing this tragic hair news and it led us to a lengthy discussion on men and long hair. Is it ever okay? We reached out to some regular gals for their take on the trend.

Prince William & Kate Middleton Will Grace The Cover Of ‘Vanity Fair!’



A never-before-seen wedding portrait from Mario Testino will frame an issue honoring the royal family!

And completely uncoincidentally, Kate and Will’s cover comes exactly fourteen years after the magazine published Princess Diana’s now famous spread by Testino as well. The issue is also timed to hit newsstands just ahead of the couple’s visit to Los Angeles in July.

There’s no word of what the accompanying article will entail, but the New York Post reports that “the spread will also include shots of Diana, Prince Charles and Prince Harry.” Wait, what about Pippa?!

Anyway, here’s hoping there will be plenty of Harry, because with all this wedding brouhaha, we’re starting to feel like the younger prince has been flying way too under the radar. Can we get a good party scandal, please?

Naomi Campbell's outrage as 'racist advert likens her to a chocolate bar'



Naomi Campbell is considering taking legal action against Cadbury after claiming a ‘racist’ advertisement compares her to a chocolate bar.

The supermodel said she was shocked and hurt to see her name on billboards and in newspapers next to the Dairy Milk Bliss bar.

Black civil rights groups have urged shoppers to boycott products of Cadbury’s U.S. parent company, Kraft Foods.

And Miss Campbell, who is known for being litigious, said she is currently considering taking ‘every available option’ over the adverts that appeared in a national newspaper last week and in supermarkets, reading, ‘Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town’.

Lady Gaga's Born This Way becomes biggest album debut of 2011

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Playing second fiddle for only the second time in its 18-week chart career, Adele’s 21 was dethroned by Lady GaGa’s second album, Born This Way, which became the biggest debut of the year.

Reaching number one with 215,639 copies, Born This Way eclipsed the 208,090 that 21 sold when it entered the chart in January – but not the 257,731 copies it sold in its 10th week - and has the best first week tally of any album by an American female solo artist since Madonna’s Confessions On A Dancefloor opened with sales of 217,610 copies in 2005.

Although it outsold the rest of the Top 10 artist albums combined, Born This Way’s opening week was only the 36th biggest of the 21st century – and its arrival has blunted the impact of the four singles thus far lifted from it: Judas retreats from eight to nine (29,895 sales); Born This Way dropped from 16 to17 (22,495 sales); The Edge Of Glory fell from six to 18 (20,377 sales) and Hair slumped 13 to 68 (4,667 sales).

Amazon.com shelled out $3.2 Million for the Born This Way deal



Christmas came early for Lady Gaga fans this week, as Amazon sold downloads of the singer's brand-new LP, "Born This Way," for just 99 cents on Monday and Thursday of this week.

Industry sources told Billboard.biz on Friday that Amazon sold some 440,000 downloads of the album - nearly all of which were the 99-cent version (a more expensive deluxe version is also available).

So how much is Amazon losing? About $3.2 million over the two days the promotion ran, according to Billboard's estimate.

Here's the math: For every unit it sells at 99 cents, Amazon will lose about $7.40, according to Billboard's calculation. At $7.40 per unit and 430,000 units (10,000 shaved off total digital sales to account for some sales of the deluxe edition), the Gaga-related loss comes to $3.18 million.

The promotion was a boon for Gaga's first-week numbers, which are now projected to be approximately 1.15 million units, Billboard projects.

My Little Pony covers 'California Girls'



Pop sensation Katy Perry, who was heavily criticized last year for wearing a low-cut green top during her “Sesame Street” appearance, has returned to children’s television — sort of. The 26-year-old’s hit single “California Gurls” has just been parodied on an animated series called “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.”

The show, which airs on the Hub network, features colorful horses, ponies, and unicorns in the land of Equestria chanting their own version of Perry’s popular 2010 tune, which dominated the chart’s last year.

“There is a place where the grass is what’s for dinner,” sings one animal, echoing Perry’s lyrics, “I know a place where the grass is really greener.”

While the television program keeps some of Perry’s lyrics such as “there must be something in the water,” it eliminates her alcohol references. In place of Perry’s “sipping gin and juice,” the kid’s series has the pony sing, “sipping rainbow juice” for “Equestria Girls.”

Snooki Hits Police Car Escort in Italy


Looks like Snooki has already encountered drama in Italy – but it has nothing to do with booze or boys.

The Jersey Shore star was taken to a police station to fill out an accident report on Monday after she was involved in a fender bender with a patrol car in Florence, Italian police confirm to PEOPLE.

Deena Nicole Cortese and a member of the show's production team were also in the Fiat Multipla when Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who was driving, crashed into the back of a traffic patrol car, sandwiching her vehicle between the highway wall and the police cruiser. No one was in serious condition, although a male and female police officer were taken to the emergency room of the local Careggi hospital to be treated for whiplash, bruises and cuts.

Polizzi and Cortese refused medial treatment, police say.

The irony? The police car Polizzi collided with was an escort appointed for their personal safety.

Snooki and Cortese were taken into the central police station of Florence to file routine paperwork – not because they had been arrested, police say.

The Jersey Shore crew is currently in Italy filming season four of the MTV series.

Roseanne in talks with Chelsea Handler for new NBC sitcom



LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Roseanne Barr is in talks to appear on NBC's newly ordered midseason comedy "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea."

"I'm talking to Roseanne Barr to do some guest episodes as my aunt," show creator/executive producer Chelsea Handler told The Hollywood Reporter. "She's interested in doing it, so it should be fun."

The multicamera comedy is based on Handler's autobiographical book of the same name about her prefame life as a waitress. Barr joins Laura Prepon ("That '70s Show"), who stars as the lead, and Handler in a recurring role as her own sister, Sloan.

The casting marks an upgrade in the project for Barr. Writers Julie Larson and Dottie Dartland Zicklin originally had Barr in mind for a cameo in the pilot as a lesbian prison inmate who befriends Chelsea after her arrest for a DUI. That role went to "Glee"'s Dot Jones.

Model and Transformers Star Rosie H-W bullied because of her looks :(

She’s been doing the rounds in a series of glossy magazines since being named the Hottest Woman on Earth by Maxim, but Rosie Huntington-Whitely wasn’t always so popular.

The model-turned actress has opened up about her battle with former school ground bullies, who would call her ‘kipper lips’ and ‘tit lips’.

The 24-year-old revealed the taunts while stripping down to a sheer deep red gown and bikini bottoms for the July issue of GQ magazine.

It’s not the first time Rosie has posed for the magazine, but this time she admitted: ‘I was teased about the way I looked at school.’

While being photographed topless with her arm covering her modesty, she said: ‘I got teased because of my lips.

‘I used to get called Tit lips – because I had big lips but no breasts. And then I was called Kipper Lips.

‘There was a big group of girls that was Devon’s answer to Mean Girls, and they would storm the bathrooms shouting, ‘I’m going to f****ing deck you, Lips! See you on the school bus’.

‘And boys didn’t really go out with me.’

'Lose two stone if you want to be a success', Cheryl Cole told ahead of U.S. X Factor appearance

Cheryl Cole was under pressure to lose as much as two stone ahead of her ill-fated appearance on the U.S. X Factor, it emerged yesterday.

The 27-year-old singer is said to have been advised by an unnamed executive at the Fox network that she would need a huge image makeover if she wanted to win over audiences stateside.

Miss Cole quickly enlisted the help of Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal trainer Tracy Anderson to try to achieve a more svelte physique. She had developed a curvier figure since battling back to health following a bout of malaria last year.

However, she looked noticeably more voluptuous as she left the airport in Chicago last weekend following auditions for the talent show.

Just days later she was axed from her role on the U.S. show.

Meanwhile, Miss Cole will not be returning to the British version of The X Factor after TV executives withdrew their offer yesterday evening.

Her line is cool, and she's got a unique sense of style coveted by many. But Rachel also has an in: Ken Downing, Neimans' Senior VP and Fashion Director, who has been Rachel's mentor on her designs. Must be nice to have someone on the inside.

Celebrity hairdresser James Brown grovels for drunken N-word rant at the Baftas

Celebrity hairdresser James Brown has issued a grovelling apology for his drunken N-word rant at TV presenter Ben Douglas at the Baftas.

Brown repeatedly aimed the N-word at Douglas at the glittering ceremony and referred to his female companion as 'a n*****'s bitch', as revealed in the Mail On Sunday.

Theatre academy founder Douglas had refrained from naming the celebrity stylist, who is close friends with Kate Moss, but Brown came clean and issued a full apology.

In a statement he said: 'I'd like to make a public apology to Mr Douglas, to his friends and to Bafta for my offensive and stupid comments.

'The simple truth is that I had drunk far too much on the evening and my behaviour was totally unacceptable.

'Everyone who knows me knows I am not racist in any way whatsoever, but this incident has shown me that my drinking is way out of control and I need to take urgent measures to deal with it.'

Douglas confirmed that the pair had a 'full and frank conversation' about what happened.

The statement continued: 'I have been in touch with Mr Douglas and will be writing to him and to the Bafta organisers to apologise personally.

Prince Harry leaving da club


Yeah, Eugenie was there too... whatever

Looks like Prince Harry is still living up to his wild ways.

On Friday night, he was spotted leaving Public nightclub in London — with a stained shirt. While it’s unknown what happened (maybe someone spilled a drink on him?), he looked frazzled as he got into a car with his friends. Though Harry, 26, has an on-again, off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy, she wasn’t present. Perhaps Harry just needed a boys night out.

For a nightclub facing the loss of its licence because of the rowdy behaviour of its patrons, it is perhaps not the best publicity. Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie were photographed looking dishevelled as they left Public in Chelsea with conspicuous drinks stains on their clothes.
As he made his way at 2.30am to a car waiting outside the nightspot co-owned by his friend Guy Pelly, the 26-year-old Prince was almost unrecognisable from his elegant appearance as best man at his brother Prince William’s royal wedding.

Accompanied by four protection officers, his blue shirt was stained down one of his sleeves. The mini-dress worn by his 21-year-old cousin, who had two bodyguards, was also splattered by drink.

Howard Spooner, Public’s co-owner, announced this month that it would appeal against a licensing panel’s decision to reduce its opening hours after complaints from neighbours about lewd behaviour in the street.

The nightspot, which opened in December, will be required to close at midnight and have its customers off the premises by 12.30am. Mark Daley, a former councillor, told the hearing at Kensington Town Hall in London: “I have had complaints that people were doing some very unpleasant things including having sex, vomiting, urinating and defecating.”

So, is there really good AC in London clubs? Wouldn't you absolutely DIE dancing in that outfit?

Chelsea Handler to Declare ‘War’ on the Big Screen

 Image and video hosting by TinyPic



 The host of E!’s popular talk show ‘Chelsea Lately’ will costar in the upcoming comedy ‘This Means War,’ according to Deadline. In it, she will play best friend to Reese Witherspoon, whose affections are fought over by two best friends (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy). McG is directing the project, which is scheduled to hit theaters sometime next year.

This marks Handler’s second major movie deal this year, after landing a role in the Russell Brand Easter Bunny comedy ‘Hop,’ opening in 2011.

But while Handler has developed a cult following on the small screen — not to mention in bookstores, thanks to her numerous bestsellers — her style may not be as easily digestible with a larger audience. Case in point: The 2010 Video Music Awards. Although the show received high ratings, Handler’s performance was generally panned, with some calling her the show’s worst host ever. (Don’t believe us? Check out this clip below.)

Of course, hosting an awards show and playing Reese Witherspoon’s best friend are two completely different things, so it’s possible that Handler will have better luck in movies than other comediennes like, say, Ellen DeGeneres. (‘The Love Letter,’ anyone?) And, if she is really bad in the movie, at least there will be plenty of eye candy to ease the pain.

Sean Kingston Accident -- Not Alcohol Related

Alcohol was NOT a factor in the jet ski accident that left Sean Kingston in critical condition ... this according to a report released by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.


The report describes the accident by saying, "Anderson was operating a PWC [personal watercraft] with a female passenger westbound along McArthur Cswy towards the Palm Ave bridge. Anderson struck the bridge and was transported to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition."

The other passenger, a 23-year-old female, was listed as being "uninjured."

Kingston is still in critical condition, but has been stabilized.

Game of Thrones: Where Have We Seen Them Before?


Oftentimes while watching HBO's new series Game of Thrones, I'll get confused. Not because of the plot; reading the books has helped my understanding of what's going on in Westeros and beyond so much. No, I'm often confused by familiar faces. I've seen them before, I'll think. Haven't I?

Sometimes it's hard to tell, but after some investigations into IMDb, I think I've found quite a few of the connections I've been missing. I've compiled them into a slideshow for you, just in case you've been having the same problems. Even if you haven't been troubled by the cast of Game of Thrones, maybe this slideshow will help you make some connections -- I'm sure there are some connections in here that you'll recognize. Some of the actors, especially the child ones, have no previous roles, or at least no widely-seen previous roles, meaning that for actors such as Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow), we'll just have to be watching for them in the future.
 

Game of Thrones episode eight, "The Pointy End," airs on Sunday, June 5 at 9/8c.

Beyonce ranked in Billboard's Top 20 Songwriters of the decade

Award-winning plagiarizer songwriter Beyonce now has another stunning accolade to add to her wall, after being listed by Billboard as one of their top twenty Hot 100 songwriters of the past decade. Bey came in at No. 17, beating out established hitmakers like Sean Garrett and Jermaine Dupri to place on the list, which ranks ‘songwriters’ based on their performance on the Hot 100 between Jan. 1, 2000, and May 7, 2011.

Timbaland placed No. 1 on the list, followed closely by Dr. Luke, putting Beyonce in very good company.

Bey may sometimes cop a bit of criticism for her ‘writing’ contributions, but she’s really improved over the years. For example: On 2008′s ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’, Bey took Jon McLaughlin’s “Smack Into You”, left the production the same, and changed it to “Smash Into You”, but on her brand new ballad “1+1″, the diva was careful to change multiple lines from The-Dream’s original demo of the song — instead of singing “Cause baby we ain’t got nothing but love” like The-Dream wrote, literary genius Beyonce changed it to “Cause baby we ain’t got nothing WITHOUT love”, and rather than say “I hope that I’m gon’ die by you”, the Queen Bey says “I KNOW that I’m gon’ die by you.”

If you want to support real writing talent like Beyonce, head on over to iTunes now and pick up a copy of her heavily-promoted No. 33 charting “Not Myself Tonight” style smash “Run the World (Girls)” now.

Shock Frocks Sent Me Bankrupt!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


GLOBAL pop sensation Lady Gaga told British comic Stephen Fry during an interview for the Financial Times published Saturday that she "went bankrupt" during her Monster Ball tour due to the cost of her elaborate costumes and ever-changing sets.
"I put everything in the show and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the [tour]," she said.
"And it was funny because I didn't know! I had five No 1 singles, the Monster Ball's doing great, and they said, 'Well, you're $3 million in debt'."

The American singer-songwriter began the tour in 2009 to promote her album The Fame Monster, with it finally ending this month after 200 shows over 18 months.
Billboard reported in May that the tour was the biggest ever by a debut headlining artist, and estimated the shows had grossed $227.4 million while drawing 2.5 million people.
Lady Gaga also told Fry the only big things she had purchased "are my dad's heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary."
