AM2 Announces Exclusive Sneak Peek Of "Bunraku"+ Major Trolling

Based on a 400-year-old form of Japanese puppet theatre, BUNRAKU, is a classic tale re- imagined into an entirely fresh visual context, set in a unique world that mixes skewed reality with shadow-play fantasy. Set in a unique world that mixes skewed reality with shadow-play fantasy, a place where even the landscape can betray you. Heroes triumph here only because the force of their will transforms and transcends both space and time. The world of BUNRAKU is past and present, fantasy and reality, Samurai and Western all combined. Like SIN CITY and 300, it gives classic conflict a whole new graphically supercharged dynamic. Resonating through a wide range of cultures and showcasing a mind-blowing array of martial arts disciplines, BUNRAKU is a fresh arena for breathtaking fight action.

Chris Brown: I Influence The World With My Music And Smile

Say what you will about Chris Brown. But don't call his recent success a comeback.

The 22-year old R&B star, a controversy magnet whose early promise seemed to go up in smoke with his brutal beating of Rihanna, has maintained great support from a loyal crew of fans since that fateful episode over two years ago. And with his album, "F.A.M.E.," debuting in the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart earlier this year, spawning three number one singles and netting him six BET Award nominations, it would seem that he's back to at least semi-mainstream acceptance. Not that he ever doubted it would happen.

"I don’t really think it’s a comeback album. I feel like it’s an album of triumph, like an underdog type of album," Brown tells The Source magazine in its new cover story. "It’s more of me showing and proving everybody wrong. I don’t think I ever went anywhere. It’s not like I fell off the face of the earth."

'Dexter's' Jennifer Carpenter: It's Time for Deb to Figure Dex Out

The fifth season of "Dexter" belonged to Jennifer Carpenter.

Following a fourth season that brought a supporting actor win for John Lithgow and a nomination for star Michael C. Hall (Carpenter's former husband), Season 5 focused more on Carpenter's Deborah and her refusal to realize her brother is a serial killer. An Emmy nod this year would be Carpenter's first.

Bill Maher And Jane Lynch Give A Dramatic Reading Of Anthony Weiner’s Sexts

You’ve probably seen the contents of some of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s more obscene sexts, but you haven’t heard them like this. Bill Maher took advantage of his pay cable slot tonight on Real Time by dramatically reading some of Weiner’s messages verbatim…with the help of Glee star Jane Lynch.

This was a can’t-miss idea – as soon as Maher said he and Lynch would be reading the sexts verbatim, the crowd started applauding. And the already-won-over crowd just kept getting more and more taken with each line…and it’s easy to see why. The ridiculousness of what Weiner was saying is really amplified when you hear someone actually say this stuff out loud. Speaking from a personal standpoint, reading it in the first place was funny enough, but around the time Maher said “It needs your pussy juice,” I laughed to the point where the people around me openly wondered if I was okay. There’s a good chance something similar will happen to you – watch the clip below, via HBO, to find out.

Marc Anthony storms out of interview after being quizzed over J.Lo's Sucia Tape with ex

Marc Anthony stormed out of an interview with a Univision TV reporter on Wednesday after she refused to stop quizzing him about his wife Jennifer Lopez’s ongoing legal battle with her ex-husband Ojani Noa.

Lopez's lawyers have won the latest round of the fight to keep intimate footage of their client from porn sites after Noa's girlfriend, the new owner of the home video clips, and his manager Ed Meyer went to court to appeal a lock on the film.

Meyer, who has since started mailing segments of the video to news agencies and websites, has revealed he has received lucrative offers from X-rated film sites to buy the footage, even though it's not a sex tape.

And when Anthony was asked to comment about the story during an interview in his New York office, he turned frosty, repeated "Next question" six times and then walked out - after chatting for less than three minutes.

David Simon Agrees to Make Sixth Season of ‘The Wire’

 For my money, The Wire is the best show to ever grace a television screen. I’ve watched I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Seinfeld, M*A*S*H, The Sopranos, and I still think the The Wire towers above them all. For five amazing seasons, series creator David Simon created an intense, detailed and eye-opening cross-section of Baltimore’s beating heart by focusing on law enforcement, the drug trade, politics, education, shipping and the press. Praise for the show is almost universal, save for the Emmy voters who never gave The Wire a single award. And though it ended in 2008, fans still dream about the unlikely possibility of the show returning.

Among those fans is Attorney General Eric Holder who, last week, demanded that Simon and co-creator Ed Burns make another season. Or at least a movie. Friday, Simon responded to Holder with a simple request. He’ll do it, but first the Department of Justice must “reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition.” Point, Simon. Read the full quotes after the break.

This all started last week when Holder invited several former cast members to Washington to take part in the announcement of an anti-drug public relations campaign he’s running through the Department of Justice. Here’s what he said about The Wire:

Lindsay Lohan Wins Two-Year Restraining Order

A judge has ordered a man accused of showing at the actress’ court appearances and leaving gifts at her house to stay away from her for two years, the Associated Press reports.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joseph Biderman ordered a restraining order against David Cocordan after a hearing in Santa Monica, Calif. Biderman said that the man had filed a statement agreeing to the order.

Lohan had filed last month that she was afraid of Cocordan, 38, who she said sent her more than 100 texts. One specifically had to do with having sex.

Currently Lohan is serving a 3-month house arrest sentence for violating her probation for taking a necklace without permission from a store.

Colin Firth adds honor from Queen Elizabeth to Oscar

The actor playing King George VI in 'The King's Speech' will be named a Commander of the British Empire in Queen Elizabeth II's Birthday Honors List published Saturday, June 11.

Colin Firth is to gain more recognition for his work in drama. After winning Best Actor at this year's Academy Awards, the actor praised for his role as King George VI in "The King's Speech" will be named a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in Queen Elizabeth II's annual Birthday Honors List to be published on Saturday, June 11.

The 50-year-old actor, who played Mr. Darcy in the 1995 TV adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", reportedly impressed the monarch with his portrayal of her father's battle to overcome a speech impediment. Aside from his acclaimed performance in "King's Speech", he also starred in various movies, including "Bridget Jones's Diary", "Mamma Mia!" and "A Single Man".

Colin is one from hundreds of others to be honored by the monarch for their work. Singer and songwriter Bryan Ferry will also receive a CBE, while golfer Lee Westwood, cricket captain Andrew Strauss, artist Sam Taylor-Wood and jazz singer Claire Martin will each receive an OBE (Officers of the Order of the British Empire).

The Queen of England bestows honors twice a year, at New Year's Eve and on her official birthday. While she will turn 85 on April 21, she has traditionally celebrated an "official" birthday on June 11. Recipients of the honors are selected by committees of civil servants from nominations made by the government and the public, but the Queen must give her formal approval before they are awarded.

George Clooney Has $160,000+ Luxury Beach Hut & Basketball Court Built For Him on "GRAVITY" Set

Warner Bros., the film studio, pays for trailers, etc.

George Clooney Has It TRAILER MADE

GEORGE CLOONEY snubs the work canteen when he takes a break from filming new movie GRAVITY.

Instead he sits in a hot tub by the custom-made beach hut he's had installed next to his trailer inside Shepperton Studios.

The Hollywood star is the envy of every extra at the London location. While they're all hanging about in a Portakabin between shots, George is living a life of luxury.

The tub and hut are in his private landscaped garden and decking area, well away from prying eyes.

A source said: "George has really brought a bit of California to London. "His private area is amazing and is better than most people's houses. Because he's such a big star he can request pretty much whatever he wants and he usually gets it. Scene builders can build anything on a film set - and that goes for facilities for the actors too. It's quite a sight."

George doesn't just lounge around in his pants smoking cigars in his private holiday camp. He's able to do some exercise too as he's also had a basketball court installed. But George hasn't had that all to himself. It's on the edge of the studio site and local kids have been trying to sneak in and use it.

It's believed to have cost more than £100,000 to build Clooney's chillout complex. The Oceans 11 actor stars alongside SANDRA BULLOCK in the movie.

She's a regular visitor to his luxurious hangout and takes 16-month-old nipper Louis with her. The source added: "George lets Louis play on his decking and has a right laugh with him. He is big mates with Sandra; they've known each other for years."

It'll be interesting to see if George invites all the extras over to celebrate the film being wrapped up. At least he'll have somebody to play basketball with.

Fanboy Goes to Hollywood

Morgan Freeman Calls Obama ‘A Bit Too Regular To Be President Of The United States’


Morgan Freeman has lived through quite a few Presidents in his 74 years, but when he met the current Commander in Chief, he wasn’t left awestruck.

“I’ve met him on a number of occasions,” Morgan told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of his Lifetime Achievement Award honor from the American Film Institute. “He’s a very nice guy. He might be just a little bit too regular to be the President of the United States ‘cause he’s a young guy, he likes to play basketball, and I’ve noticed that he has a Chicago walk. Watch him when he walks up to the podium,” the actor continued. “He doesn’t walk up one, two, three, stop. He goes one, two and one, two. He’s got a little bit of a beat to it.”

Freeman’s comments came after the actor was asked if he thought playing the president in “Deep Impact” helped open doors for African-American political candidates, including Obama.

“I don’t think so,” Freeman replied to that question. “The public will accept a lot of things in the movies that they won’t accept in real life.”

In fact, Freeman pushed away a further question about helping to break down color barriers with his talent. When THR asked if he helped make casting directors “more open to color blind casting,” because his “Shawshank Redemption” character was originally meant to be an Irishman, Freeman wouldn’t take much credit.

“I certainly hope so, but in that instance, the Screen Actors Guild was pushing for open casting at the time. I was just a beneficiary,” he said.


Forsyth finally gets his Brucie Bonus (Colin Firth, Bernard Cribbins, Sam Taylor-Wood also honoured)

Entertainer Bruce Forsyth says he is "very proud" after being knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours.

Ex-EastEnders star Brooke Kinsella, 27, a campaigner against knife crime since her brother's murder, is made an MBE.

Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine have a joint project outside “The Voice”. The 30-year-old beauty has told Us Weekly that she and the Maroon 5 frontman have hit the recording booth together. “We just recorded a song together. We have a great relationship. It’s a big lovefest,” she said.

Details of the song are yet to be provided, and it is unclear whether the single would be included in Xtina’s upcoming studio album. The “Beautiful” hitmaker recently confirmed that she has been preparing new material for her new effort.

Previously, Christina has recorded a duet with another “Voice” judge Cee-Lo Green. Titled “Nasty”, the track has hit the web in May. Cee-Lo confirmed the song was recorded a few years ago before they signed up for the reality show, and “was supposed to make the ‘Burlesque’ soundtrack.”

Ambur Gets A Sentence Worse Than Jail!


Portwood pleaded guilty to two counts of Class D felony domestic battery in presence of a child, which stem from a Sept. 28 episode of “Teen Mom,” in which she was shown hitting, kicking and punching Gary Shirley, the child’s father.

As part of her probation, Happe ordered Portwood to 30 days of inpatient treatment, with additional outpatient treatment pending an evaluation. Portwood was also ordered to obtain her high school diploma, and start a college fund for her 2-year-old daughter Leah, to which Portwood is to contribute $10,000.

Happe cited the fact that the abuse took place in front of Leah, which he said can often have a traumatic effect on a child. He said he wanted to start something “rehabilitating” for Leah. Happe also cited Portwood’s financial situation.

“What distinguishes her from others in her situation, is that she has substantial financial assets available,” said Happe.

In return, Portwood will have two charges dropped against her: Class D felony neglect of a dependent, and Class A misdemeanor domestic battery.

Glee trying to recruit world's most flawless man as a guest star + some season 3 information

AKA, this man.

Rocker Bruce Springsteen is still at the top of the Glee producers' list for future guest stars, E! Online reports.

The Boss' name was first thrown around as a possible guest star last season. Although Springsteen hasn't appeared on the show, executive producer Ian Brennan told E! he would still love to have him. And the part Brennan wants the musician to play? A motivational speaker.

As for the more permanent fixtures on Fox's musical smash, Brennan continued to suggest Season 3 might be the end of the road for some of the show's characters, who will be high school seniors next year.

"We aren't going to change the entire cast, but some of the cast will graduate," Brennan said. "I just think we would be missing a beat if we didn't acknowledge the fact that a huge part of high school is graduating from high school, and that's going to give us a lot of stuff to write to in Season 3.

"Every time we bring in a new character it's worked out really well; we've been very fortunate," Brennan continued. "We get to sort of start new — we get to bring in new characters and write new storylines So bringing in new characters will allow us a little more flexibility and will add to the longevity of the show."

One of those new characters will come from Oxygen's The Glee Project, a new reality competition show premiering Sunday that gives contestants a chance to earn a role on Glee.

"The reality show has cast a character that is very exciting," Brennan said. "I can't even tell you whether it's a guy or a girl, but we are very, very excited about the prospect of bring on this new person. ... This person coming onto the show is going to add a really, really, funny dynamic."


I do not have a gif to display my immense amount of displeasure at this idea and the fact that there is no Bruce tag for me to use.

Tom Hanks producing 6 seasons of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for HBO

Here's some good news for those readers upset that the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman stalled out. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hanks' Playtone Productions will produce a whopping six seasons of Neil Gaiman's earthbound-deities novel American Gods.

We had heard previously that Hanks had been looking into adapting Gaiman's acclaimed book for HBO, and now it looks like American Gods is getting that chichi cable treatment. Notes THR:

The series-in-development, revolving around the question "are you a god if no one believes in you?" is executive produced by [Gary] Goetzman and Hanks, with Bob Richardson, and Gaiman on board as executive producer and writer.

Each of the six seasons will be of 10-12, hour-long episodes with a budget of around $35-40 million per season, targeted to debut on the cable powerhouse in 2013 at the earliest [...] American Gods will be effects-heavy to do justice to the awe-inspiring power of the divine beings. "There are some crazy things in there. We'll probably be doing more effects in there than it's been done on a television series," said Goetzman.

Before we get too jazzed up, it's worth adding the caveat that Playtone has other obligations before American Gods, namely a $100 million live-action treatment of the Mattel action figure Major Matt Mason. Hanks co-wrote this 3D family space adventure and is set to star and produce. Furthermore, Robert Zemeckis is in talks to direct — are we looking at Mars Needs Bosom Buddies? Anyway, here's hoping American Gods won't crumble under the weight of its own ambition.

Kasabian releases first track from their new album.

English rock heroes Kasabian are back with a new album and if the first single, newly released “Switchblade Smiles,” is any indication, it’s going to be absolutely epic. After premiering the song on BBC Radio 1, DJ Zane Lowe claimed it’s “a bold statement, the sound of people marching into oblivion.” He’s not far off.

Of course Kasabian have been supplying us with hard hitting tunes since their debut in ’04, but the boisterous use of synthesizers and electronic reverberation here is amped to levels they hitherto have not attempted. Blended with noisy guitar riffs and Tom Meighan’s angry vocals, it’s destined to be a smash.

Listen to 'Switchblade Smiles' here:Collapse )


Apparently they've just started playing music from the new album this month, but this song premiered on radio just the other day. The new album Velociraptor! is due to be released in September. I'm not particularly fond of this track actually. I like it more as it goes along, but there's almost too much distortion and yelling for my tastes. I'll still buy the album when it comes out probs.

Britney Spears' New Concert Tour: Should You Go? (Answer: Hell Yeah!)

Britney Spears is looking super hot. 
How do I know this? Because last night I was among just a handful of people invited to watch the pop princess' first—and very private—dress rehearsal of her upcoming Femme Fatale tour.
Before I give ya some of the highlights, just let me say that if you don't have tickets yet, run and get them now.
The show opens with a video of Spears in a sparkly leotard (one of many skimpy outfits that shows off her back-in-shape bod) being chased by cops through an industrial landscape. And yes, Britney's brandishing a gun. Think Salt meets Charlie's Angels.
The song list includes more than—ready for this?—20 songs. She starts with "Hold It Against Me," followed by, well, everything, including "…Baby One More Time," "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Toxic," "Gimme More," "(Drop Dead) Beautiful," "Big Fat Bass" and "Till The World Ends."

Harry Potter and Star Wars Actor Indecently Exposed Himself to Teenage Girl

A dwarf actor who has appeared in Harry Potter and Star Wars movies indecently exposed himself to a teenage schoolgirl on a train.

Nicholas Read undid his trousers and kept a juggler’s hat on his lap, before lifting it slightly in front of the 17-year-old. Read, 40, who has appeared regularly in Snow White and the Seven Dwarf pantomimes across the country, was found guilty of exposure. Leicester Crown Court heard he was travelling north from London after judging a croquet competition when he flashed the girl. He had drunk half a bottle of gin, provided by sponsors of the promotional event, and feeling "merry".

The jury was told he had a previous conviction for indecent assault in 2004 when, after a New Year's Party with a Snow White panto cast, he drunkenly climbed into bed with the sleeping stage manager and his girlfriend and assaulted the woman.

Tracy Morgan's history of homophobia

Morgan's distaste for people in the gay and lesbian community is not new, even if his more violent material is. In a November 2009 appearance at Carnegie Hall, Morgan called homosexuality a "choice," causing some people in the audience to get up and leave, according to gay-themed magazine The Advocate. AfterElton also cites an episode of "Scare Tactics" on Syfy in 2008 where Morgan -- the host of the show at the time -- noted that a flamboyantly gay actor in a segment gave him the "heebie jeebies."

Another comedy appearance in February 2010 at Northwestern University reportedly had Morgan asking the gay men in the audience to cheer. According to North by Northwestern, Morgan said that while he harbored no hatred for homosexuals in general, he didn't appreciate when gay people try to "suck my dick." Morgan reportedly repeated the joke a few more times, and the "laughs became more and more hesitant."


The rest of the article talks about his apology and Tina Fey's response, but since that was already posted I'm leaving it out.

Jennette McCurdy writes to The Wall Street Journal about her mom's battle with Cancer.

There are people who believe that young actors on a TV series have it easy and that they never have a tough moment in their lives – not a single trial or obstacle. I don’t blame the people who think this because we, as young actors, spend our days making families laugh and using smiley face emoticons in nearly every tweet we send. Underneath the carefree façade, you may be surprised to know that some of us actually do have to face some tribulations.

Noel Gallagher's single named 'The Death Of You And Me'?

Noel Gallagher has named his new single 'The Death Of You And Me', according to a production company he has been linked with.

In A Place Productions, a company in Los Angeles, posted a response on their Facebook page to a question about the former Oasis man's new video. They confirmed that they are shooting the clip for the track.

They also said the song was called 'The Death Of You And Me' and that "it wouldn't be out until the end of the summer." The posting has since been taken down, and Gallagher's spokesperson is yet to respond to a request for confirmation or denial on the single title.

The news comes after cameraman Nito Serna recently tweeted via Twitter.com/nitoserna that he was working on a video for Gallagher. He wrote: "Music video for Noel Gallagher out at Club Ed. Epic camera, techno crane. Should be an interesting day." That tweet was also removed soon after it went up.

Club Ed is a permanent film set in California that was originally built for the 1991 film Eye Of The Storm and has been featured in various movies since. Gallagher is believed to have been recording his solo album in Los Angeles recently.

Weston Cage's mother Christina Fulton is persona non grata at the hospital where her son is being treated -- because TMZ has learned, Weston himself turned her away when she tried to visit.

Sources close to Nicolas Cage tell us, Weston is pissed that his mother's been blabbing to the media -- blaming the entire situation on his dad.

We're told Weston has been estranged from his mother for some time -- he doesn't want to see her, and he certainly doesn't want her to visit him in the hospital.

TMZ posted a video yesterday -- in which Christina unloads on Nic outside the hospital, blaming him for Weston's condition ... and we're told, it all took place after she was denied from Weston's room.

Kreayshawn Defends Using N-Word

Natassia “Kreayshawn” Zolot, a white rapper from Oakland, California is defending the use of the “n-word” in a Twitter post, saying that everybody uses the word where she grew up, according to Voice-online.co.uk.


Zolot posted a tweet saying “People are actin so funny omg lol. I got 200k views. Not 200k dollars. WTF you want from a n****a? DMX voice [sic].”

Zolot defended the post recently saying:

In Oakland, Asian people will call Mexicans that. A Mexican will call a black dude that. A white person will call an Asian that. Everyone calls each other that. I feel like that word is used in the low-income community more than anything. I can see if I was some rich crazy trick and I was just saying this because it’s hip-hop,” Kreayshawn said, “I was raised around this. Me and my sisters were all raised around this. People call me that. But personally I’m not flaunting it around.’’

Zolot rose to Internet fame after her “Gucci Gucci” music video was viewed over 2 million times, landing her a record deal with Columbia Records. Writer Timmhotep Aku recently slammed the rapper, saying “Kreayshawn is better laughed at than acclaimed.”


Faizon Love Arrested for Domestic Violence

Faizon Love -- who voices Bruce the Bear in the upcoming travesty "Zookeeper" -- was arrested early Friday morning for domestic violence ... TMZ has learned.

According to jail records, Love was booked into custody at 9:07 AM PT Friday.

What's interesting ... even though jail records indicate he was arrested for fourth degree domestic assault -- the lowest DV charge there is -- bail has been denied and Love is still in custody.

Love is currently on probation for assault and that could by why he's been denied bail.

Love's attorney had no comment.

SOURCE domestic abuse is no laughing matter but I know some jokes that can be made about this.  

Potential NYC Mayoral Candidate Alec Baldwin: Anthony Weiner Is a Modern Human Being

My friend Morgan Rank owned an art gallery in East Hampton several years ago. He moved to Italy, living in the quiet countryside there for nearly a decade. We had lost touch and then, at an art event in New York, someone approached me and said, "Morgan is back." I got a phone number and called him.

Morgan really lived off the grid. No internet. Little telephone usage. When we spoke awhile back, he commented on the digital age he found, in full force, upon his return. "Theses kids with these devices in their hands every minute of the day," he said. "They will never get to know each other the way we did. They will never stare at each other over a candle, jammed into a bottle of Mateus, on a red checkered table cloth in some restaurant."

Which brings me to Anthony Weiner.

The Internet, as I understand it, is best for sharing information, ideas and even feelings. We send our thoughts and feelings, our very spirit, over the airwaves, with astounding velocity. At times, as human beings, we want to attach the body to the feelings, as well. Photos of ourselves and loved ones. Pets. The view out our window. The image of a child's purity.

Photos used to sell something. Houses, apartments, cars, headshots, horses, music downloads, cookware.

Photos to find love. To find sex.

My thought on Weiner is that he is a very busy man...Collapse )

nice 2 know he has such a laissez-faire attitude on ppl doing shady things while in office. alec baldwin 4 mayor tbqh!!!!!

Money Hungry Lady Gaga Auctions Autographed Piano for Charity

Lady Gaga is once again auctioning her wares for charity - this time one of her pianos.

The singer is selling the Steinway Baby Grand, which has an estimated price tag of $60,000, in aid of "Ten O'Clock Classics" who provide free music and instruments to the badly off children living in New York.

Gaga played this particular piano during a benefit gig for the Robin Hood foundation, another poverty charity based in the city.

It is one of the larger items Gaga has sold, and definitely a step up from her usual auctions of fashion items and clothing, and whatever it's final selling price it is going to provide another massive charitable boost from Gaggs.

The auction is currently running on Charity Buzz website and has so far hit $27,000 after only a couple of days. The auction is set to end on the 15th June.

Kanye West Signs Nigerian Acts D’Banj and Don Jazzy

With a loaded roster that includes John Legend, Kid Cudi, Cyhi Da Prince and Pusha T, Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music imprint has reportedly gone international with the signing of popular Nigerian artists D’Banj and Don Jazzy.

Just a day short of his 31st birthday, D’Banj tweeted on June 8, “Just like yesterday myself and my brother did Tongolo. 7yrs later Mo' Hits signs with Good Music. Best birthday gift ever. God thank u” – referring to his debut hit single “Tongolo” produced by Don Jazzy, president and lead producer for Nigerian indie label Mo’Hits Records. D’Banj, an award winning artist in his country, has earned in the past a 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards win as well as several MTV Africa Music Award trophies in what appears to be a very full display case.

Don Jazzy, credited as mostly a producer, musician and label head, counts D’Banj as his flagship artist and also has made him the vice president of the Mo’ Hits label. The small label also lists artists Wande Coal and Dr SID as part of the Mo’Hits brand.

On Don Jazzy’s very active Twitter page, the seemingly jovial musician fielded questions about the Kanye signing and even tweeted a photo of himself standing next to his rumored new boss Kanye West and hip hop heavyweight Jay-Z. G.O.O.D. Music reps have not confirmed the signing of the Nigerian pair, but the exuberant tweets from both D’Banj and Don Jazzy will certainly gain the African stars attention in the days ahead.

Debuting in 2005 with his No Long Thing album, D’Banj has released four albums with the most recent being Mr. Endowed in 2010. American rapper Snoop Dogg featured on a remix of that album’s title track as well, which was produced by Don Jazzy.

Meet Kreayshawn

The internet's been going crazy (errr... "Kreay-zy"?) recently for a pint-size white female rapper from Oakland called Kreayshawn. As soon as the video for her insanely catchy song, "Gucci Gucci," was posted on The Fader, she racked up thousands of hits on YouTube and questions began flying. Who was this girl? Was she for real? If she had no major label backing, why were the video's production values so high? How did she know the guys from Odd Future?

‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ crew posters will be prize at Hero Complex Film Festival

(gif from here)

Marvel Studios printed up 100 copies of a special poster just for the cast and crew of “Captain America: The First Avenger” and we’ll be giving away five of them on Sunday at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood. The retro-minded poster (and a nod to the first issue of the comic book) was created by the talented Paolo Rivera, whose many credits include covers for ”Fantastic Four,” “Spectacular Spider-Man” and “X-Men: Unlimited.” I’m thinking that one of those posters might go to the person in audience with the Marvel Universe costume.

Tila Tequila Admits To Eating Disorder: 'But It's Not To Stay Skinny!'

Tila Tequila is a naturally petite girl, but the pint-sized star has exclusively admitted to RadarOnline.com that she has an eating disorder.

Amid a slew of Hollywood starlets grasping to maintain an underweight figure because of the pressures of the industry, Tila says her eating disorder isn’t an effort to stay skinny and she actually wants to gain weight.

“I too, have a eating disorder. But not because I want to be skinny, but because I want to gain weight and can't,” Tila told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.

“When I’m happy and healthy and stress free, I eat better and maintain a healthy weight and my body stays in great shape and my face is fuller and plump. It looks good on me. However, lately, I have lost a lot of weight and am now down to only 87 pounds.”

On Tila’s 4’11” frame, that puts her slightly below a healthy weight.

“I try not to wear dresses that show too much because you can see my rib cage showing. It's disgusting!” Tila said.

Olivia Wilde spotted at movies with Justin Long

Olivia Wilde was seen out with yet another Hollywood bachelor!

The Tron actress and Justin Long were spotted at the Arclight movie theaters in Los Angeles, Calif. taking in an evening flick. Olivia even tweeted about her movie night, writing: 


Midnight In Paris makes me all blushy and happy like a drunk girlscout. I’m humiliatingly chipper and gushy right now. It’s brilliant.”

Olivia has been seen out with a number of newly eligible bachelors lately including Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. Prior to her movie excursion in L.A., Olivia joined her Change-Up costar Ryan Reynolds at his Details Magazine cover party in NYC.

Isn't Justin Long with Leighton? And he's for real the combo breaker considering all the other guys she's been linked to are hot.

X-Men: First Class: The Romantic Tragedy of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr

I had the pleasure of seeing X-Men: First Class in theatres last night – and it has been my most giddily anticipated comic book movie of the year. Thanks to the 90′s cartoon, I’ve been a nearly lifelong X-Men fan, and the relationship between Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) is the crux of everything X-Men.

Frankly, the film was easily read as a story of two gay fathers raising their adopted children.

First Class is more or less an origins story of Professor X and Magento’s relationship, as well as the formation of Professor Xavier’s School for the Gifted, and hence the X-Men team itself. Additionally, the film shows the start of Magento’s Brotherhood – an organization/team that, although not directly opposing Xavier’s X-Men, has a different and competing philosophy.

Long, spoilerific article under the cutCollapse )


I've believed Professor X and Magneto were boyfriends since I first understood the meaning of "subtext", so to me the film is just confirming what I already knew.
