Katy Perry’s Parents Condemn her Lifestyle While Cashing in on Her Eternal Damnation

For an hour, Keith Hudson has been pacing around the sanctuary of the Kings Road Church on the outskirts of London. He has been telling the congregation his story — that Satan has lured his daughter away, that she has fallen. But that he must love her anyway. Must pray for her. Pretty typical stuff for a preacher — even an American one so far from home.

But then he stops short, ready to unleash his big pitch. With tears in his eyes, hollering at the top of his voice, he delivers his keynote with as much bombast as he can muster: “I kissed God — and I liked it!” Hold on a minute. Isn’t that a pop song? Who’d this guy steal that line from? His daughter, Katy Perry - who, unfortunately, thanks to her massively successful career and semi-Hindu husband, is most certainly going to hell.

Camping, the 89-year-old head of the Oakland-based evangelical media company, suffered a stroke on Thursday night after a radio broadcast and was taken to a local hospital, according to a message posted on a Family Radio-oriented Yahoo group by Charlie Menut, station manager of Family Radio affiliate WFME.

Drake Bell's New Single on iTunes Today

Drake Bell's new single, 'Terrific', off his upcoming EP, A Reminder (due out June 28th), is available NOW on iTunes and Amazon.

...The song, which hits iTunes [today], Tuesday, June 14, was produced by John Fields, the force behind some of the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato‘s biggest hits.

“The song is really about calling someone out on not being themselves,” said Drake in a statement. “People growing up and trying to fit into different scenes, getting into different things that aren’t necessarily good for them or who they are. Trying to be someone that they’re not, and maybe shouldn’t be, and watching that happen right before your eyes,” he added.


I can't see it being played on the radio, but it's good. He's been promising fans new music for the past 2 years. He's also touring, check out those dates here.

David Duchovny filming "Californication"

Check out David Duchovny and Natascha McElhone getting cozy on the set of Californication in Venice last week (June 9).

Duchovny and McElhone are busy filming the fifth season of the hit HBO show. If you are anything like me, then you are a huge fan. In a recent interview Duchovny was asked about playing the role of Hank Moody:

“Yeah, [Hank] is losing. He’s losing a lot, but what I’ve always thought about Hank from the beginning, and the reason I was attracted to the role, is that he’s a character who speaks his mind. He’s kind of the truth teller among all these people who are lying. That gives the character a kind of power, and it also makes him real, a guy that will just say what’s on his mind. It’s what we all want to do a lot of the time, but we can’t because we’ll get fired or whatever.”

Teen Mom Amber Portwood Hospitalized, Possible Suicide Attempt

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been rushed to a hospital emergency room after being found unconscious in her home with a rope around her neck in a possible suicide attempt, Star magazine is exclusively reporting via RadarOnline.com.

The embattled 21-year-old MTV star is being treated at St. Johns Hospital in Anderson, Indiana.

A source said Portwood, the mother of two-year-old tot Leah, was found just after noon on Tuesday. The source said Portwood later admitted to hospital staffers she had taken a cocktail of pills.

Portwood's on-again, off-again boyfriend Gary Shirley became concerned about Portwood's state of mind after having a phone conversation with her, the source told Star.

James McAvoy unconvinced by 3D

The actor is in this summer’s blockbuster X Men: First Class, in which he plays Professor Charles Xavier. The latest instalment of the franchise goes back in time to the 60s when the professor met Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto.

Although many of the biggest Hollywood releases have been in 3D lately – such as the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie On Stranger Tides – X Men: First Class didn’t bow to the trend. James is pleased, because he thinks such pictures are overhyped.

“I think it's good thing X-Men is not 3D,” he is quoted as saying. “In fact, thank God this movie is not in 3D. 3D it just an excuse to charge you an extra ten bucks at the theatre. And then in the end it's not 3D at all, it's just a waste of money.”

Avatar is the movie most people associate with the impressive special effect. Director James Cameron spent years perfecting the picture and has been open about his own feelings on 3D.

He thinks it is becoming too common and is only interested in seeing it used properly. James rejects the method of adding the effect in post production, singling out 2010’s Clash of the Titans as a movie which had poor effects.

“I maintain you can't do a good conversion of a two-hour movie with high quality in a few weeks like they tried to do with Clash of the Titans,” he said.

“I don't mean to throw that movie under the bus because my buddy Sam [Worthington, star of Avatar] is in it, but I think everybody realised that this was a point at which people had gone too far.”


Oh, ouch. ;)

Speaking of Emma, she told MTV News that she was initially pretty nervous to appear in Perks because she wasn’t sure she could master an American accent: “My accent? I was really nervous. I think it sounded terrible!”

LOVE IS A LIE! JUST GIVE UP & DIE FOREVER ALONE! Hugh Hefner & Crystal Harris Call Off Their Wedding

Hugh Hefner's fiancee Crystal Harris is a real-life runaway bride -- 5 days before walking down the aisle ... she bailed out of the Playboy Mansion and multiple sources say the wedding is off!

Our sources -- who are all at the mansion -- say Crystal and Hef had a nasty argument this weekend on the phone. When the dust settled Crystal decided to 86 the nuptials and quickly moved her stuff out.

The wedding was supposed to go down Saturday.

This would have been Hef's, umm ... third marriage.


Jennifer labeled a 'Homewrecker' by Justin Theroux's Ex

She won the sympathy of millions when she was dumped by then-husband Brad Pitt for Angelina Jolie.
But despite famously calling her love rival 'uncool' in an interview for stealing her man, Jennifer Aniston is now being branded a homewrecker herself.

The long-time partner of Jennifer's rumoured new boyfriend Justin Theroux has revealed that she moved out of the couple's home only last weekend.
Costume Designer Heidi Bivens is understood to be devastated over the new romance.

A spokesperson for Bivens told the NY Post: 'Heidi and Justin have been together for 14 years.
'They met when she was 20 years old and he 24, and yes, she just moved out of their home last weekend. She has no comment.'

Jennifer, 42, and Justin, 39, made their first public appearance last week at the MTV Movie Awards after party at the Soho House in Hollywood.

And according to People magazine, Jen threw a small get-together for her best friends including Chelsea Handler and Courteney Cox on May 27 to introduce them to Theroux.
A source told the magazine: 'They all had a great time and enjoyed Justin's company.'
Despite the claims, a friend of Your Highness star Theroux insists: 'Things were already over between him and Heidi before he got close to Jen.'

The pair met on the set of movie Wanderlust last autumn. Over the past eight weeks they have been spotted on dates at various Hollywood haunts, but avoided being photographed together until last week.

All aboard the crazy train for Pine Valley! Josh Duhamel, Eva LaRue, Cady McClain and Thorsten Kaye aren't the only All My Children grads returning to the cancelled soap. An AMC rep tells TV Guide Magazine that the show will also bring back a trio of women known for playing sinfully delicious nutjobs: Jennifer Bassey (Marian Colby), Kate Collins (Janet "From Another Planet" Green) and Melissa Claire Egan (Annie Chandler) will all be seen again the week of July 25 — together!

The plot finds Marian, Janet and Annie being held at the Oak Haven psychiatric hospital where the presumed-dead Dixie Martin (McClain) is also under observation. The women find a way to escape the facility and will make their way to PV to reunite with their loved ones.

Bassey was last seen on AMC in 2009 when Marian tried to shoot Kendall (Alicia Minshew) and suffered a nervous breakdown. Collins' character was placed into custody in 2010 after stalking her own daughter. Egan left AMC just last March when Annie was committed to Oak Haven for kidnapping. She is currently in the running for a Daytime Emmy in the outstanding supporting actress category.

So who's next? Look for more great AMC stars to be added to the list of returning faves!

Since the incident, Ambur's twitter has been deleted, and Gary has made this statement on his:

Ten Best Songs To Sample Human Nature

Last week, I posted some new music from Detroit's own Elzhi, who flipped Nas' "It Ain't Hard to Tell" into his own tribute to the classic track -- both of which sample Michael Jackson's "Human Nature."

I also mentioned Chris Brown's "She Ain't You," a rising track on Billboard which also samples "Human Nature." And, last week, SWV added some vocals to Brown's track for a remix -- since they themselves sampled "Nature" for "Right Here" back in 1993.

That got me to thinking -- just how many songs over the years have used a loop or interpretation of "Human Nature?" It charted high back in the day, but probably not as readily identifiable as say, "Billie Jean," "Thriller" or "Beat It."

But although Jackson has a cavalcade of hits, "Human Nature" probably turns up just as often in other reinterpretations just as much as those aforementioned chart-toppers. So, here are ten of the best uses of "Human Nature":

No 'Doctor Who' for 2012?


"So after last week’s quite ridiculous state of affairs concerning the state of Doctor Who and the fate of Series 7, it seems that BBC One Controller Danny Cohen has stuck his head above the pulpit and finally come clean.

Speaking to the Church and Media conference this afternoon, where Cohen was answering questions about faith and television, the man with the power to make or break a TV series confirmed the rumours that there will be no series of Doctor Who in 2012, with just a single Christmas special commissioned in advance of the 50th anniversary 2013 series.

So this latest news isn’t unexpected.

Of course, a lack of Doctor Who throughout most of 2012 will be disappointing, of course, but with official magazines, fanzines, DVDs, audios, books, comic strips and graphic novels not to mention amateur fan works and various websites such as this, 2012 won’t really be a Doctor Who-free period – and 2013 looks set to be FANTASTIC!"


BBC has announced that there won't be a complete "full series" in 2012, but a possible half season. So Autumn 2012 would see first half of series 7, and then Doctor Who would return in Spring 2013 for the second half of series 7.
thanks queenthesixth!

I'm entirely aware that this is for budget reasons, but I still think we should blame someone, and his name is:

Ambur Alert Update + Stmt From MTV

Reports say Ambur is in stable condition, maybe addicted to morphine

As reports surface that MTV’s Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is in the hospital for an alleged suicide attempt, the network is weighing in on the stories surrounding the reality mom.

MTV says: “Our understanding is that Amber has been admitted to a local hospital but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of any reports being circulated and are waiting for further details. Our thoughts are with her and we hope to hear more soon.”

A friend close to Amber told OK! that she is now stabilized and awake, adding that she’d been taking morphine recently to deal with the pressures of filming and her custody battle for her daughter, Leah, who has been with dad Gary Shirley.

Amber’s situation hasn’t been very good lately, as the source tells OK!, “She can’t handle not seeing Leah. She really only gets to see her maybe once a week for an hour, and that’s it. And it’s supervised by the CPS.”

Another insider tells OK!, “It’s very serious. Amber and her family want her privacy respected during this difficult time. No one is sure exactly what happened as the story keeps changing so everyone is sorting through the facts.”

Our thoughts are with Amber and her family during this difficult time.

The Warner Bros. profile page on the website for the Licensing Expo website did list Man of Steel, I think this might just be something to throw out there to let fans know that the movie is still alive and well.

The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, Josh Pence, Nestor Carbonell, Michael Caine , and is set for a July 20, 2012 release date.

Shaq In Middle of Kidnapping, Robbery, Sex Tape Case

Shaquille O'Neal is embroiled in a criminal case in which 7 gang members allegedly kidnapped, beat up and robbed a man who claimed to have a tape showing Shaq having sex with other women while he was married to Shaunie.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Ladell Rowles -- a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang in L.A. who is friends with Shaq -- along with 6 other members went on a search and destroy mission in L.A. on February 11, 2008.  They believed a man named Robert Ross had the sex tape and they tried getting it back with the help of a gun or two.

According to the police report, the 7 gang members met up with Ross at a convenience store -- Pink Dot -- on the Sunset Strip.  The men allegedly surrounded Ross' Rolls Royce Phantom with guns drawn, jumped into Ross' car and ordered him to drive to Rowles' house in South Central L.A.

Once there, Rowles allegedly pistol whipped Ross and demanded that he turn over the sex tape.  Ross said he would get the tape and bring it back to them.  The 7 men then allegedly took Ross' Rolex, diamond chain and earrings, along with $15,000 in cash -- then let Ross go.

Justin Timberlake: Smoking Pot Gives My Brain A Rest

Different celebrities have different ways of kicking back and relaxing, and for Justin Timberlake that means a little ganja.

The “Like I Love You” singer readily admitted to smoking marijuana during a recent interview with Playboy magazine.

He explained, "The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high. I feel I'm just getting to a point in my life where I'm looking around, going, There's a lot to enjoy if I can just sit still, actually stop and take more time."

Timberlake also remarked on his music career hiatus- "I don't have a single song ready to go. People keep asking me when a new song or album is coming out, and I don't know what to say. Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday. It could happen next month or next year but right now it's not where it's at for me."

As for his preference for famous girlfriends, "You probably gravitate toward people who understand your scenario. At the end of the day you just want someone who gets you, who can be a friend. That's kind of the point of Friends with Benefits. As corny as it sounds, the 'friends' part counts just as much as the ‘benefits’ part, if not more."

Is 'Fraggle Rock' the movie still in the works?

There was a time when it looked like the new Muppets movie would have company in theaters from a new Fraggle Rock film. Cory Edwards (Hoodwinked) was set to write and direct the film for The Weinstein Company. But Mr. Edwards started to talk about how the Weinsteins wanted something different from what he was doing — an older-skewing, edgier movie — and over the past year the movie has stalled altogether. The last word we had came from the writer/director:

There’s nothing to report except that The Weinstein Company has everything they need to move forward, and the ball is in their court. They’ve talked about getting a new writer, which I’m willing to do. They’ve talked about starting over from scratch, which I’m willing to do. But I have not heard a peep from their camp in almost a year.

Now a new report suggests the movie isn’t dead, and that it will have musical numbers penned by unlikely artists: Jake Shears and Babydaddy of disco/glam-pop band Scissor Sisters.

Welcome to the future: Japan's most successful girl band has a member that doesn't even exist

What you need to know before reading: AKB48 is a wildly successful Japanese girl band that consists of 48 members.

Rumors are circling quickly after the sudden announcement of AKB48’s newest member, 12.5th generation research student, Eguchi Aimi.

Said to have been pulled out of NMB48’s auditions to join AKB48, producer Akimoto Yasushi stated that she will be “the heroine of the new age”, and said that the reason he created the AKB family may have been in order to meet her.

With her debut just barely revealed, Eguchi is already gracing the cover of Weekly Playboy, and is part of a campaign for Glico’s Aisu no Mi.

Such unprecedented promotion for a new member has caused quite a stir among AKB48 fans.

However, fans’ shock at the startling announcement has turned to suspicion that Eguchi is neither a new AKB48 member, nor a real person at all.

Side by side comparisons with popular AKB members suggest that Eguchi is in fact a composite created from the other members’ features. Audio interview questions on the Glico site are also said to closely resemble member Maeda Atsuko’s voice and manner of speaking as well.

Gwyneth Paltrow Shames Fat People, No One Is Surprised

Last November, Gwyneth Paltrow gave Ross Mathews, the late night TV comic from Chelsea Lately – a little tough love.

That was all the motivation needed by Mathews – who was tipping the scales at around 220 lbs. After seeing his friend Sara Rue lose 50 lbs. on Jenny Craig, he signed up in January to be the diet company's newest spokesperson.

"I was clueless about eating healthy before," he says. "Now I'm making good choices."

Even Paltrow has noticed the change. "I saw her when she was promoting her cookbook recently," says Mathews. "She was so excited. She said, 'You look good!' "

Teaser video of La Toya Jackson's new song and MJ tell-all book

For those who didn't already know: Michael Jackson's big sis, La Toya, is releasing a second secret-spilling book, later this month. Entitled "Starting Over," Jackson promised fans on Twitter that the book "tells everything that has happened in my life since my last book in 1991, 20 years ago. [...] Every question about me you ever wanted answered, is in this book!"

But despite the fact that La Toya calls her latest literary offering an "autobiography," its main selling point -- let's face facts -- is her more famous younger brother.

Nicole Scherzinger trying even harder to be Cheryl

After lasting a mere four auditions, the most enduring image of Cheryl Cole's American X Factor career is perhaps the controversial orange and purple outfit she wore on her first day.
But while the Geordie star was roundly slated for her bold colour blocking, it seems the 27-year-old singer may have started something of a fashion trend.
And today the woman who replaced her on the judging panel - Nicole Scherzinger - had her own stab at wearing the clashing colours as she arrived to auditions in Miami.

White Collar's Matt Bomer Talks Being a "Man Ho," Making Out With Eliza Dushku

Eliza Dushku is one very—and we mean very!—lucky lady.

Not only does she get to act alongside White Collar hottie Matt Bomer during her upcoming stint on the series' third season, Dushku gets herself some seriously steamy screen time with the show's supersexy star...

"There's an interrogation scene and at the end of it, Eliza's character gives Neal a pretty nice embraced kiss in front of Peter [Tim DeKay] in the interrogation room," Bomer, who plays con artist Neal Caffrey, dished last night at a private White Collar screening and Q&A at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in L.A. (hosted by yours truly, Marc Malkin).

"[It's this] incredibly tense scene between Peter and Neal, and then he walks out in the hallway and he makes out!" joked DeKay.

"Neal is just a man ho who's scared of real intimacy and wants to live on the edge," Bomer said of his character's love life. "One of the things about the con artist lifestyle is that all the romance is sort of sloppy and fast and loose. The intimacy is sort of easy and fast because ultimately the stakes are really high and you gotta get in and get laid while you can and get out."

But Bomer isn't the only White Collar star getting action on the show.

Olivia Munn: 'Tracy Morgan apology not enough'

Olivia Munn has suggested that Tracy Morgan must follow up his apology for making anti-gay remarks by actively campaigning for tolerance.

Morgan evoked a firestorm of controversy last week after making a series of homophobic comments during a gig in Nashville, TN. He later insisted that he meant no offense and issued a public apology in coordination with the Gays & Lesbians Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

The comic's remarks drew widespread criticism from his 30 Rock co-stars Tina Fey and Cheyenne Jackson, as well as George Takei and Nia Vardalos.

Munn, whose Perfect Couples shared NBC's Thursday lineup with 30 Rock before its cancellation, has now weighed in on the matter, insisting to Access Hollywood that there is nothing funny about mean-spirited remarks.

"When people are making a joke, if it feels mean-spirited, that's where people revolt. I wasn't there. I didn't hear how [Morgan] delivered it, but comedy can be very powerful and can be used [in a] wrong way sometimes," the I Don't Know How She Does It star explained.

Munn went on to say that it is not enough for Morgan to simply apologize for offending gays and lesbians, adding: "It's really easy to say [you're] sorry. That's easy for a lot of people to do… You can say you're sorry all you want, but you have to really show that you're sorry."

Comedian Chris Rock initially registered his support for Morgan's right to speak openly while on stage, but has since backtracked by saying that he understands Morgan's comments were insensitive.

Morgan has committed to meeting with LGBT teenagers to discuss bullying this week in New York City.

There's real drama behind the comedy 'Happily Divorced'

The TV Land sitcom from divorced couple Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson is inspired by their relationship, in which he came out as gay after they split.

Fran Drescher and her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, are co-creators of the new TV Land series, "Happily Divorced."

Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson, the husband-and-wife team behind the hugely successful series "The Nanny," were once so joined at the hip that they compared themselves to one of TV's most beloved couples, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

Like that iconic duo, Drescher and Jacobson had clearly defined roles: She was the foghorn-voiced comedian with an outrageous persona and a sparkling smile; he was the quieter creative force behind the scenes, helping to shape their brand of comedy. Fueling their star power was their fairy-tale-like off-screen romance — they had been together since falling in love in high school.

In a 1994 interview, Jacobson offered a key difference between him and Drescher, and their idols, who eventually split up. "We'll stay together."

Drescher and Jacobson are still very much together. But like Lucy and Desi, they are now divorced, living very separate lives — she as a single woman, he as a gay man.

Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation (ontd original)

We're all familiar with fan films.  We see them so frequently on the web.  But there was a fan film before all fan films. . . before people had thousands upon thousands of dollars to make a fanfilm (talking about this).  I'm talking about: Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation .  For all of you wondering, "What?", let me copy a little bit from TheRaiders.net :

After seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, three 12 year old friends, Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb, began filming their own shot-by-shot adaptation in the backyards of their Mississippi homes. Seven years later their film was in the can. Raiders: The Adaptation was shot completely out of sequence over seven years, resulting in the casts' transformation in voice tone, hair style and body size from scene to scene.

For your viewing enjoyment, the first 10 minutes on YouTube:

I own a copy of it, and let me tell you, its an amazing thing to watch.  Unfortunately, unless you want to be a pirate, this movie is very difficult to find on the web.  All that existed for a while were trailers and news reports about screenings that this movie gets every so often (thank god for the YT clip).  But its there, if you know how to look. There was also supposed to be a movie (kind of like Son of Rambo) that had to do with the three kids and their summers creating the film.  But its been stuck in development hell.

Also, Steven Spielberg had the pleasure of meeting all three kids.  This is from a letter he wrote:

"Wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your very loving and detailed tribute to our Raiders of the Lost Ark. I saw and appreciated the vast amounts of imagination and originality you put in your film. Again, congratulations. I'll be waiting to see your names someday on the big screen."

Hope you enjoyed this little 'original' inspired post.  Of course, feel free to post other fan videos too! 




Mods: I hope this post was okay! :X

ONTD's new favorite takes another stab at relevancy

Kathleen Hanna Returns With the Julie Ruin

Back in the late 90s, when her band Bikini Kill was close to breaking up, feminist punk icon Kathleen Hanna launched a messy, lo-fi, sample-heavy solo project called Julie Ruin and released a self-titled album in 1998 on Kill Rock Stars. It presaged the synthier music she'd soon make with Le Tigre. Now, Hanna has relaunched a new version of that project, a five-piece band called the Julie Ruin.

The new band includes Hanna's former Bikini Kill bandmate Kathi Wilcox, Kiki and Herb member Kenny Mellman, Carmine Covelli, and Sara Landeau. The Julie Ruin performed at a Kathleen Hanna tribute show at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory last December. The band has a website, a Twitter, and a MySpace. And they're also recording. They've been posting studio photos on their website, and according to CNN, their album is due in January.

Current Emmy Campaigns = Future Oscar Campaigns?

As print circulation continues to dwindle and online inventory becoming increasingly competitive, networks searching for Academy of Television Arts and Sciences members have found some out of the box ways to reach voters.

Finally having a chance to catch "Kung Fu Panda 2" last night, I was stunned to see NBC is running "for your consideration" video ads at Pacific Theaters at The Grove pushing the candidacy of "Parks and Recreation." Playing during the pre-show entertainment, this is this first time this longtime Angelino has ever seen a network push for Emmy consideration in theater. This cannot be cheap and the options, at least in Los Angeles, to really reach voters this way are slim. The Landmark Theaters and Arclight Cinemas (Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Pasadena) would be the premier locations to reach upscale Emmy voters, but they do not allow paid placement of this kind in their theaters (at least not yet). That leaves only Pacific's The Grove and Culver City locations and AMC's Century City, Burbank and Santa Monica multiplexes as real legit Emmy voter destinations.

Another interesting observation is that FOX has purchased for your consideration mall posters for "Glee" at the iconic shopping institution, The Beverly Center. Yes, for your consideration ads in a mall. Showtime has also bought outdoor bus ads that co-promote for your consideration of their shows and serve as general branding in the industry friendly neighborhoods of West Hollywood, Burbank, Culver City and, of course, Beverly Hills.

Could this be the future of Oscar campaigning? Probably not, but it will scare studio accountants that's for sure.

One big difference between the TV Academy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is membership size. AMPAS has kept the group to about 6,000 members. The TV Academy is more than 15,000. That might not seem like a sizable difference, but when programming niche marketing (which in general is what awards campaigning is), it's significant. Moreover, many of the general ads for films advertising during awards campaign in New York or Los Angeles are designed to appeal to both consumers and pitch specific performances to industry voters. That's not the case during Emmy season when most network contenders are in re-runs. The two examples above would have pros and cons for studios.

If the Arclight and Landmark allowed pre-show ads there would absolutely be a flood of for your consideration spots in theater. You couldn't stop producers, directors and actors screaming at studios to get their promo in there. However, that would be detrimental to those chains business model and, moreover, studios as rule do not like to pay for something in theater. It all goes back to the strange, incestuous and sometimes tempestuous relationship studios have with exhibitors (more on that another time).

The mall banners, on the other hand, could be the next wave, but only if awards season happened during a different time of year. With overall media spending turning around, malls can charge more because of higher demand during the Christmas shopping season. That effectively makes it cost prohibitive to advertise straight FYC ads at The Groove, Century City or Beverly Center malls (not to mention the need to push broader films to a mass consumer audience). But never say never with that one.

Needless to say, even with strict rules from both Academies, the campaign walls are starting to break down. Something to keep an eye on if you live in LA or NY this fall and winter.

Have you caught any FYC ads in theaters, malls or at your local bus stop? Share your thoughts below.

Lady Gaga Meat Dress Headed for Rock Hall of Fame

How can we possibly forget Lady Gaga's meat dress? You know, the one she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

Whether it was flank steak or thinly sliced brisket sewn together, it was, for her, a pretty conservative outfit -- she showed a lot of flesh in the Franc Fernandez/Nicola Formichetti-designed dress, but at least it wasn't her own.

The garment received a lot of press: Some praised its originality but others had a beef with it, including PETA, which released this statement:

"Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn't want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots -- not too attractive, really."

Well, apparently some thought the dress worth preserving. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland is putting the meaty piece on display for one day only Thursday as part of its current Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibit. The museum says the exhibit "highlights the flashpoints, the firsts, the best, the celebrated -- and sometimes lesser known women -- who moved rock and roll music and American culture forward."

The press will receive a dress preview Thursday morning, but the release sent out by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame begged one big question. How in the world did they preserve the dress?


omg such an icon. crying rn! Your faves are too busy getting basic ass shit from Jean Claude Pennay and Tarjay.
