Tyler, The Creator: 'My Gay Fans Don't Find my Language Offensive'

'I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive,' Odd Future frontman tells MTV News.

Tyler, the Creator and his Odd Future cohorts have raised more than a few eyebrows on their way to rap notoriety. But while their followers praise the collective for their refreshing sound, as well as their renegade approach, some critics have argued that OF are pushing the boundaries of what should be acceptable in rap.

But the rapper has now spoken up in defence of his material, claiming that he has gay fans who find the language acceptable. He told MTV News: "Well I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive, so I don't know. If it offends you, it offends you."

He went on to validate his position by claiming that he himself is not offended by racist language: "If you call me a nigga, I really don't care, but that's just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way, I personally don't give a shit."

His album 'Goblin' uses the word 'faggot' and its variants a total of 213 times. It provoked Sara Quin of indie duo Tegan and Sara - pictured - to post a blog calling him out. She wrote: "While an artist who can barely get a sentence fragment out without using homophobic slurs is celebrated on the cover of every magazine, blog and newspaper, I'm disheartened that any self-respecting human being could stand in support with a message so vile.Collapse )

Anyone who ACTUALLY listened to the album (Goblin) would know that Tyler is not homophobic. It' almost like going back into time 10 years ago when the Marshall Mathers LP was released... exact same unions and artists trying to get their names in the papers to promote themselves.

Top 10: Best Abs on Film

This weekend, with the release of “Green Lantern,” America gets to continue its love affair with Canadian star Ryan Reynolds and his torso. Shirtless or more in almost every movie he’s appeared in this decade, the actor’s sex appeal appears to be one of the film’s most obvious selling points. Warner Bros., anxious about the new franchise, would certainly love it if women (and some men, of course) are drawn to the theater this weekend to see People Magazine‘s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive unencumbered by a shirt, and in 3D.

It remains to be seen whether that particular aspect of the film’s marketing is going to work. But in the meantime, it seems more than appropriate to distract ourselves with an inspired and ridiculous list. While I’ve titled this post the “Best Abs on Film,” as one often titles things, this is really more of a “Most Entertaining Abs on Film.” Some of these would certainly sit high up on either, but after a while just staring at pictures of these men actually gets kind of boring (surprising, I know). So here’s an assortment of clips both impressive and ridiculous, a trashy and sweaty trip down memory lane. Enjoy.

EXCLUSIVE: Logan Lerman locked on for "Percy Jackson" sequel



EXCLUSIVE: "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" was a reasonably sized hit when it came out in the winter of 2010: The mythology-infused film based on Rick Riordan's bestseller drew $89 million in U.S. box office and another $137 million around the world.

Now a sequel hopes to build on that fan base.

According to a source familiar with the production who asked not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of discussions, studio Fox 2000 has exercised the option on star Logan Lerman, essentially meaning that the young actor is locked down to reprise his role as Percy Jackson in a new picture. The company has also hired a director in Thor Freudenthal, best known for helming the similarly boy-oriented "Diary of a Wimpy Kid;" he'll pick up where "Lightning Thief" director Chris Columbus left off. (Columbus will only produce this new movie.)

lauriann gibson (rightfully so) attacks gaga & her stans on twitter


If you didn’t know, Laurieann Gibson is Lady Gaga’s long time choreographer and professional partner, and recently her behavior has been grotesquely unprofessional and unfalteringly obnoxious. It’s been going on low key for quite some time, but recently she’s been uncreatively vomiting her nastiness all over Twitter.

Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory” music video made its worldwide debut, and once again, Gibson couldn’t keep her mouth shut. Gibson revealed that her and Kahn were did not collaborate with Gaga and their plans for the videos were removed. Clearly, Gibson was a little unhappy and bitter because right after the video was released, she thought it was necessary to ReTweet people’s dislike for the video: “It was nothing extraordinary. I’m disappointed to be honest” and “I liked the Google Chrome commercial better. I’ll just pretend THAT’S the video.”

In the heat of the moment, Gibson continued to name-call Monsters, calling them “ignorant” and even had the audacity to tell one person “you r sick Get some help.” Really? Gibson is a disgrace to the Gaga team and has shown countless times that she has no class and concern for Lady Gaga’s fans. She’s distasteful, hypocritical, and unprofessional. Plain and simple, she needs to be fired. Her attack on fans is a punch in the face to Lady Gaga herself.

Fox Makes Family guy MMO and my tiny little nipples go to France




This week's edition of I-can't-believe-they're-making-that-into-an-MMO comes courtesy of Fox and the Family Guy. Yes, Family Guy. The MMO. We're not kidding. Details are pretty scarce at this point, so the wisecracks we're dying to make about history's worst IP-to-game translations will have to wait until gameplay footage, screenshots, or trailers are available.

As it stands, Family Guy Online was announced via its official website, and Fox has also set up a Facebook presence as well as the usual social media suspects. Interested parties can register on the official site, and while said registration doesn't guarantee you a beta slot, the site does say that registration will put you "among the first in line for the closed beta." Stay tuned to Massively for further Family Guy MMO news as it happens!

Film Reviews: Swinging with the Finkles; Critic states: "Worst film of the year so far"


The Irish Times

IT’S JUST as well that Martin Freeman has secured that role in Peter Jackson’s upcoming version of The Hobbit . Indeed, if I were Martin I’d make absolutely sure that every dotted line is signed and every relevant box is ticked. Swinging with the Finkels is the sort of film that kills careers.

Heck, it’s the sort of film that stops clocks, causes plants to die and induces mass outbreaks of spontaneous vomiting. Mrs Thatcher killed off the unions and broke the nationalised industries, but she couldn’t eradicate the most troubling symptom of the 1970s British Disease: the feeble, urban sex comedy.

Here’s a question for you. About halfway through this carnival of bilge, Mandy Moore, playing a sexually frustrated wife, decides to pleasure herself with a crisp cucumber. What do you think happens next? That’s right. Her elderly grandparents, whose impending visit she seems to have forgotten, bluster in the door carrying overstuffed suitcases. Laugh? I almost renewed my subscription to the Robin Askwith Appreciation Society (look him up, kids).

It's Official: 'Days of Our Lives' is Becoming 'Gays of Our Lives'



The rumors are true: Days of Our Lives is about to get its first gay storyline! EW can report exclusively that Freddie Smith (90210) will make his debut June 23 to lay the groundwork for a same-sex relationship. He’ll play Sonny, a good-natured young man who returns home to join his family.

What Salem clan is he talking about? That’s all Smith is willing to tease for now. ”He is the center of attention kind of guy but in a good way,” Smith told EW. ”He’s very confident and mature, he’s traveled the world and is very open-minded. I’m very excited to portray him.” (OP note: he's Adrienne and Justin Kiriakis' son.)

Though he’s been at work for several weeks, Smith has yet to learn the identity of his new ”boyfriend” on Days. ”I’m going to be surprised,” he said, laughing. “There are a lot of guys on the show, so it’s going to be interesting to see who I end up falling for. Someone new? Someone on the show? We all make jokes, `who am I going to make out with first?’ It’s going to be fun to see.”

While competing sudsers have been in the forefront when it comes to same-sex couples — ABC’s All My Children, for example, featured the first lesbian character in Bianca Montgomery (Eden Riegel), which led to the first gay marriage between her and Reese Williams (Tamara Braun) — Days has largely played a backseat role when it comes to featuring gay couplings.

“I think it will be interesting to see how people respond to it,” Smith said. “I truly care about the whole thing. There’s been a lot of controversy about this and for me to be able to a part of it, to be able to change people and make a difference … I’m really excited to play a character with that much pull.”

Adele Canceled Her Tour Because She Was Told to Lose Weight

23 year-old singer Adele, who has said in the past that she is ‘happy with her weight, loves fine foods and hates the gym’ supposedly canceled her latest tour because she was told to shed some pounds. Let’s see the story via Star:

Officially, it was laryngitis that forced Adele to cancel her recent North American tour. But Star has learned exclusively that it’s not the British singer’s throat that’s bruised – it’s her confidence!

“Shortly after she landed in LA in early May, an executive for her label told her she needs to lose weight,” a source tells Star. “And that really devastated her.”

Although a very talented singer, Adele, 23, suffers from extreme panic attacks. And performing in front of increasingly larger crowds has made the condition worse. She’s told friends she’s gotten so nervous on stage, her throat would literally close up. “The pressure on Adele… has been immense,” says the source. “She was sitting in her hotel room in Santa Monica on her own, crying.”

The added pressure placed on her because of her weight has only made her more anxious and uncomfortable. “Adele sees herself as just a normal girl from London, and she felt bullied and like a fish out of water in LA. She just wanted to go home,” the source tells Star.

Do you believe this Star story… or not?

Hmmm... is it true? Why would Star lie about this?

After losing 60 pounds on Dancing With the Stars, Kirstie Alley is very close to accomplishing another goal – slipping into a sexy Ports 1961 dress. “My goal dress has a waist that’s 22 inches,” she shares with Life & Style. “I tried it on, and I can almost zip it up.” She plans to wear the dress on her Italian vacation in a few weeks. “I’ll be my target size by then,” she exclaims.

Men Behaving Badly... It's a Good Thing



Strauss-Kahn. Schwarzenegger. Edwards. Weiner. It's been a helluva month for men behaving badly. Am I the only one who sees this as a good thing?

Has the tradition of men having it their way -- with women bearing the consequences -- hit a speed bump?

Historically, women who have been victimized by men -- whether by a sexually harassing boss or a philandering husband -- were trained to hit the mute button.

"He'll fire you if you complain."

"He'll divorce you if you confront him."

"Be glad you have a job / a roof over your head."

And it's worked. But, of course, men have always had a litany of "universal truths" to back up their behavior that have been passed down from generation to generation: "Men have their needs." Or, "For men, it's just a physical thing." Or my all-time favorite, "Boys will be boys."

Well, not so fast, boys.

Female Shepard Finally Gets Cover Girl Glory in Mass Effect



Mr. Commander Shepard, star of Mass Effect video game box art, is going to have to share the cover with his female counterpart, Ms. Commander Shepard, at least in the collector's edition version of Mass Effect 3, BioWare says.

While the masculine version of Shepard has dominated official screen shots, wallpapers and box art for the first two Mass Effect games—he's also prominently featured on the standard edition Mass Effect 3 box—the feminine Shepard is finally getting some attention from BioWare. "FemShep" will also get her own official trailer, according to BioWare's director of marketing David Silverman, via NeoGAF.

Silverman says Mass Effect 3's collector's edition art is "One side male, one side female," but it sounds like the official look for female Shepard is still being locked down. Silverman tweets that BioWare "are working on the look now."

Hopefully, given the diversity of Mass Effect players' millions of Shepards, they'll surprise us with something other than the default female version of the commander.

Ambur is a Bipolar Bombshell Beauty?

On June 15, Anderson, Ind., police responded to a call that indicated that Amber Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. Ultimately, the Teen Mom star was transported to a local medical facility, where she has been receiving treatment.

While the reality TV personality has yet to comment on events of that day, Portwood, 21, did open up to PEOPLE last summer about her struggle with bipolar disorder – a condition characterized by dramatic shifts in mood.

“I take medication,” she said at the time. "I haven't [taken] anything today. Am I acting crazy? This is me though, and I like it."

Portwood, who was shown on the MTV series visiting a therapist shortly after giving birth to her daughter Leah in 2008, said that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder that year, after a particularly depressing time.

At that time, "I was like, 'Screw this day, but I gotta get up for Leah,'" Portwood said of her mindset. "I just thought I was lazy."


Even so, Portwood wasn’t convinced that her diagnosis was accurate.

"I don’t think I'm bipolar, to be honest with you," she said. "I'm just really outgoing. I think everybody thinks they're bipolar these days. You're a teenager, you have hormones. You're gonna switch up every two seconds!"


According to a source, Amber has been in therapy for two years. MTV did not reply to requests for comment.

Model Is Suing Over NOT Being Photoshopped In Ad



Model Caroline Louise Forsling, a top Swedish model, is suing Estee Lauder over claims that she was made to appear to look older in an advertisment for their anti-aging skincare.

Forsling is suing the cosmetics brand for $2 million according to Daily Mail, claiming that it used her image without permission in the ad for Plantscription serum by Origins (which is owned by Estee Lauder). The 35-year-old model is claiming that her career is 'irreparably' damaged by the ad, which reads that the product was tested on women between the ages of 45-60.

According to Forsling, the photograph was taken as a test shot during a shoot for an ad for a different Estee Lauder-owned company. The shot shows her without makeup, and her hair pulled completely back from her face. The ad then shows a "before" and "after" side of Forsling's face, with the "after" side showing a flawless complexion, and arrows pointing out the reduced wrinkles and smoothed skin.

The court papers claim that 'Before stylists did Forsling's hair and makeup for the photo shoot, the photographer took a photograph of Forsling's face as a test shot.' They added that her 'hair was pulled away from her face and she was wearing little or no makeup and that Ms. Forsling 'believed the test shot would not be used.' Forsling also added that she has never used the Plantscription serum. The test shot was clearly altered on the "after" side to show the supposed effects of the product.

We definitely see the wrong in using a test shot without permission, especially if Forsling was not told that was the shot which would be used. But, do you agree with this model's attitude? Do you think she should be relying on Photoshop so much when going into a shoot?

And regarding what Estee Lauder did, I personally would rather see a real "before" and "after" photo, not one that was simply doctored. What do you guys think?

Gaga

Despite a large public outcry, the critics seem to love video for "The Edge of Glory".

Lady Gaga’s Bizarrely Straightforward ‘Edge of Glory’ Video Is Here.
Justin Timberlake, on Lady Gaga: “She’s just plain old good. But I don’t know what the future holds for her. Her sound is so big. She’s got the outfits and she shocks you, but you kind of wonder how an act that big stays around forever.” What the ever-wise JT is getting at is that for some of us, overly concerned as to the Lady’s ability to churn out ever-more-innovatively revealing clothing, Gaga appearances and videos are all about second-hand stress. Which is why the new “Edge of Glory” video — despite being, in the traditional sense, boring — is a success. As is appropriate for a third single, Gaga steps back both from prerelease buildup (“Edge” premiered on So You Think You Can Dance, which for Gaga is a relatively inconspicuous thing to do) and unwieldy video treatments. For the first time in this album cycle, instead of tossing buckets of arguably subversive allusions for eager analysts to parse, she plays it very, very straight. Like, really straight: The entire thing consists of her pirouetting around an L.A. set while Clarence Clemons chops on a stoop. It looks like it was shot in 45 minutes. The biggest moment is a particularly intense jacket fling. But, more important: With the gloriously uncomplicated “Edge of Glory” as the soundtrack, we finally get to catch our breath for a moment. — Nymag.com

British Vogue’s Alexandra Shulman: "I Don’t Think That Fashion Is Institutionally Racist"



Shulman told the Daily Mail's Liz Jones,

"There have always been black players on the scene — at the moment, look at the stylist Edward Enninful, make-up artist Pat McGrath and [models] Jourdan Dunn, Liya Kebede and Joan Smalls, who are at the top of the tree ... In a society where the mass of the consumers are white and where, on the whole, mainstream ideas sell, it’s unlikely there will be a huge rise in the number of leading black models. If you look at the characters that sell magazines such as Grazia and Heat, it is Jennifer Aniston, Cheryl Cole and Catherine Middleton."


Is she planning to put any nonwhite faces on the cover anytime soon?

"I don’t want to discuss who I wish to have on the cover, but there are at least two black figures in the pipeline,"

Beyoncé to Assist Kelly on X-Factor

Usually at the judges houses stage when the X Factor judges recruit an aide to help them narrow down their category for the live shows, they choose slightly less famous friend (with the exception of Dannii Minogue whacking Kylie out of the bag one year). Simon Cowell has Sinitta, Cheryl Cole has had Kimberley Walsh, you get the picture.

But Kelly Rowland may be about to change all that! According to Heat, she has recruited her Destiny's Child bandmate and global megastar Beyonce to help her sift through the wannabe's!

As exciting as that is for us to watch we can imagine that would be somewhat nerve-wracking for the contestants. Wonder how she'll react if someone screeches out a rendition of Halo? As nice as Beyonce seems we've witnessed her alter ego Sacha Fierce at large. That is a force to be reckoned with.

Soul legend Patti LaBelle has been announced as an honoree at the 2011 BET Awards.

The 67-year-old 'Lady Marmalade' singer will be presented with the prestigious BET Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her more than five decades in the music industry, working with her '60s soul group Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, '70s rock-influenced female vocal group Labelle, to her solo 'New Attitude' in the '80s and recent run on Broadway in the musical 'Fela!'

The BET Awards will also be honoring comedian Steve Harvey for his various philanthropic efforts, bestowing him with the Humanitarian Award.

The 2011 BET Awards will be hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, and features performances by Jill Scott and Alicia Keys, and will air live on June 26, from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Singer Chris Brown is the frontrunner for the awards show, with six nominations, including Best Male R&B Artist, while rapper Lil Wayne is a close second with five nominations, three of which are for 'Look at Me Now,' his duet with Brown.

csb time: my mom was in Center City one day (years ago) and she stopped to look at a dress in the window. A lady comes up to her and just starts talking to her about how nice the dress is, etc. my mom looked and it was Patti LaBelle. she said Patti was just going on and on about the dress then turned to my mom and said "bye have a nice day" and my mom did nothing but smile because she couldn't believe Patti LaBelle was talking to her.

Rihanna to release YET ANOTHER album this fall



There have been whispers that Rihanna is already working on her next album. Now Ryan Seacrest confirms reports that the red-haired diva is back in the lab with a new project due later this year.

RiRi, who is currently making her way around the country on her “LOUD” tour, has plans to release her sixth album this fall. It would come as no surprise as she has put out five albums in the past five years, with her most recent project LOUD still spawning hit singles.

Seacrest spoke with the singer’s camp and made the announcement on his KIIS FM radio show. “We can confirm that Rihanna is currently working on material and will release a brand new album this fall,” he said, while also shooting down rumors that she is dating Drake.

Singer-songwriter Kevin Rudolf previously told Rap-Up.com that he has been submitting material for the as-yet-untitled project. “[I'm] writing some stuff for Rihanna right now,” he said. “I hear she’s back at it.”

A New Respect for Christina Aguilera. Really.



We've not always been very kind to Chritina Aguilera on the blogs [  ONTD ]. We accused her of being "wasted out of [her] yodeling, gurning mind", for example. We may have also mentioned that, when Stripped came out, she looked more like Dee Snider from Twisted Sister than Dee Snider from Twisted Sister did. We're pretty sure we also suggested that if you touched her, she would probably leave an oily film on your hand that you couldn't wash off without the aid of bleach.

No, we've definitely not been nice about Christina Aguilera. And at the time, we honestly couldn't help it -- all that wailing and howling and tacky sleaze-mongering was just too much for us not to mock. But, dear readers, something strange is afoot, for in recent weeks, we have found ourselves not just liking, but also -- gasp! -- respecting Christina Aguilera. And it feels a little bit like hell just froze over.

ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURES OFFERS MEMBERSHIP TO 178 PEOPLE

IF YOU NEEDED A NEW SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE: BEYONCE IS ON THE LIST.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 178 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures. Those who accept the invitation will be the only additions in 2011 to the Academy’s roster of members.
“These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today,” said Academy President Tom Sherak. “Their talent and creativity have entertained moviegoers around the world, and I welcome each of them to our ranks.”
The Academy’s membership policies would have allowed a maximum of 211 new members in 2011, but as in other recent years, several branch committees endorsed fewer candidates than were proposed to them. Voting membership in the organization has now held steady at just under 6,000 members since 2003.

Other than Beyonce (what even), the list also includes new stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Mila Kunis, Jesse Eissenberg; as well as established personalities such as Jennifer Garner, David Duchovny, Tea Leoni. Recent winners Tom Hooper and Aaron Sorkin also joined the list.

10 Super Creepy Celebrity Life Masks (ONTD Original)



Life masks are quite common in the land of Hollywood; they're used in movies and TV shows to create special effects make-up and appliances, rather than forcing an actor to sit around for tests all day. And once filming wraps, many of these masks end up in collectors' hands, or in the possession of companies such as the Haunted Studios, which make and distribute replicas to eager fans online.

As for what the fans do with these masks . . . er, I guess mount them on the wall like they just shot Bambi's mom? It's a bit weird, I'll admit. Some find more artistic uses, though (such as the realistically painted Michael Jackson mask, above).

Based on the novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by author Max Brooks, the film picks up ten years after the human victory over the world wide zombie epidemic (aka World War Z). Brad plays Max in the film, an agent of the United States Postwar Commission who scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived the conflict that almost eradicated humanity. It also stars Ed Harris and Matthew Fox.

There was talk of a film adaptation of the novel for years. Back in 2006, Brooks told the blog EAT MY BRAINS! that he would love to see Pitt play him:

“Oh who wouldn’t love to see Brad Pitt play them in a movie, but with my luck (and looks) they’ll give it to ‘Ducky’ from Sixteen Candles.”

Lucrezia Borgia cast as Estella in "Great Expectations"


Holliday Grainger cast as Estella in “Great Expectations” opposite Jeremy Irvine

Fast rising British actress Holliday Grainger has been cast in the pivotal role of Estella in Mike Newell’s new adaptation of Charles Dickens classic “Great Expectations”, reports Screen Daily. Grainger will play love interest and emotional torturer of the orphan Pip, played by “War Horse” star Jeremy Irvine.

For those of us who are fans of the new hit Showtime series “The Borgias”, this seems like a bit of perfect casting. As Lucrezia Borgia, Grainger already pretty much plays Estella on a weekly basis, charming and manipulating men to get her way. “She is just an incredibly fine actor and has the beauty that is needed for Estella as well as an extraordinary technical ability,” producer Elizabeth Karlsen said of the actress. Initially, American actress Rooney Mara had been in early negotiations for the role, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

Estella is brought up and taught to torture men by the eccentric Miss Havisham, played by Helena Bonham Carter in Newell's adaptation. Irvine’s naive and kindhearted Pip is no match for Estella’s beauty and succumbs quickly to her charms, all the while becoming the recipient of a mysterious benefactor, the ex-convict Magwitch to be played by Ralph Fiennes.

Grainger was most recently seen on the big screen as one of Mia Wasikowska’s cousins in Cary Fukunaga’s “Jane Eyre” and will next be seen opposite Robert Pattinson in Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod’s adaptation of “Bel Ami”. “The Borgias” was also picked up for season 2 on Showtime.

Filming on Newell’s “Great Expectations” begins on October 10 in London, readying for a 2012 release to celebrate Dickens’ bicentenary. A BBC miniseries of the same novel is also planned, with Douglas Booth set for the role of Pip and Ray Winstone as Magwitch.

6 People turn themselves in over Vancouver Canucks riots


A total of six people have turned themselves into police for their involvement in the Stanley Cup riots.

A 17-year-old male turned himself into Burnaby RCMP on Thursday, after a family member recognized him in photos posted online.

RCMP are recommending charges related to the looting of a Louis Vuitton boutique in downtown Vancouver and the destruction of a Vancouver Police cruiser which was flipped upside down during the riot.

He will appear in court this August facing charges of Break and Enter, plus Theft and Mischief to Property over $5,000.

The teen cannot be identified as he is a minor.

A male who turned himself into Vancouver Police is facing arson and riot charges, pending approval by the Crown.

On Facebook, a man identified as "Tim Kwong" has posted a letter of apology to the city and his friends. It reads:

"Hey Everyone ! The status is : I Turned myself in to the VPD today on Jun 16th 12pm I am now being charged on 4 counts. I am Truly Sorry for what i have done !!! I have no excuse for my actions during the Riot. To my Friends, Family, Coworkers, and of course all of Vancouver and BC i am SORRY for what i have done.

I would like to say on my behalf that I LOVE VANCOUVER ! I've been Born n Raised here all my life !! and that This Town means everything to me !!! again i understand that my actions caused did not show any of that ! But i hope you one day see that i do care about this town and my friends n family and this is NOT like me !!

I am ashamed at what i have done, I am ashamed of being a canucks fan and vancouverrite. I know i may never gain the respect of this town again. But I PROMISE that i will do whatever i can to make this up !! I am a big believer in Cleaning up your mess !! I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to make things right ! I hope this will insite some of the other rioters to do the right thing and turn themselves in !!!! I will do whatever it takes to help out and clean this town up and do what i can to prevent actions like this from ever happening in our town again.

I know I deserve all the hate !! but please be respectful and don't hate on any of my friends or family or co workers since these actions are only caused by ME and ME only !!!! Again SORRY VANCOUVER ! SORRY BC !!"

Premier Christy Clark addressed the media Friday afternoon and announced an independent review of the riots.

She also announced ICBC has offered their facial recognition system to help identify rioters, and appealed to individuals who stepped in to prevent property damage, to come forward.

If you know anyone who was involved in the Stanley Cup 2011 Riots, please call the Vancouver City Police Department at 604-717-3321, e-mail robbery@vpd.ca or call your local police, or any detachment of the RCMP.


Huge thanks to the volunteers that helped clean up downtown! And remember guys, it was a small group of opportunists who used the hockey game as an excuse to wreak havoc no matter what the outcome was. Most of them weren't even from Vancouver. The true hockey fans were the 100,000 that didn't destroy anything but wait for the skytrain to start running so they could go home.

Kim Granatell of 'Real Housewives' Calls Amy Poehler a 'C U Next Tuesday'

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" personality Kim Granatell lashed out at Amy Poehler on Twitter Friday, calling her a word rhyming with "runt" after an unpleasant run-in at a charity event

The two clashed Thursday night at a fundraiser for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation in New York City, according to CelebrityMagnet.com's Tom Murro, who attended the event with Granatell. (If this is all a phony feud to increase awareness for the group, we heartily approve.)

Poehler has a little history with New Jersey reality stars, having mocked them in her "Jersey Floor" routine with Tina Fey on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

Louis C.K. is more upset by people being mean to Tracy Morgan than homophobia

Questions for Louis C.K.
The stand-up talks about the new season of Louie and defends Tracy Morgan against charges of homophobia.



On his comedy album Hilarious, Louis C.K. describes the time his older daughter was bitten by an Italian pony. "How do you more break a little girl's heart than a pony bite? That's like being raped by Santa Claus." It's a typical C.K. bit: It's raunchy and a little bit sad, and it is fundamentally about his heroic efforts—and failures—to be a great dad.

Fatherhood is also central to his TV show, Louie, which is loosely based on his life as a divorced dad of two little girls. The show is a meandering, sometimes surrealist ride, which doesn't follow the beats of a traditional sitcom. Slate talked to C.K. about the second season of Louie, which premieres on Thursday, June 23 (FX, 10:30 p.m. EST); about how he manages to direct, write, edit, and star in the show while taking care of his kids; and about why he is standing up for Tracy Morgan after the 30 Rock star has been accused of homophobia.

'Hobgoblin': Darren Aronofsky Set to Direct HBO Pilot



Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is making his first foray into television, boarding HBO’s high-profile Hobgoblin, a period drama written by Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) and his wife, Ayelet Waldman.

The project, which is in development, revolves around a group of con men and magicians who, using their deception skills, help defeat Hitler and the Germans during World War II.

Le Grisbi Productions’ John Lesher and Adam Kassan will serve as executive producers, with authors Chabon (Wonder Boys, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union) and Waldman (Bad Mother, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits) set to co-write and executive produce.

Hobgoblin will be Aronofsky’s first filmed project since he left Fox’s Wolverine sequel. That project was to be his follow-up to Black Swan, which grossed $332 million worldwide, but he abruptly exited Wolverine in March.

Aronofsky is repped by CAA.

He’s Created a Monster: Alan Ball Talks ‘True Blood’



As anticipation grows for the June 26 season premiere of “True Blood” on HBO, an article in this weekend’s Arts & Leisure section looks at Anna Paquin, her trajectory on the show and what Season 4 holds in store for Sookie Stackhouse. Of course, Ms. Paquin would have no lines to speak, and never know when to bare her neck or shed her clothes if not for Alan Ball, the “True Blood” creator and producer, who adapted the series from Charlaine Harris’s best-selling “Southern Vampire Mysteries” novels.

Mr. Ball, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of “American Beauty” and Emmy-winning creator of “Six Feet Under,” spoke recently from his West Hollywood office about “True Blood.” In these excerpts from that conversation, he discusses the creation and history of the show, what the new season holds in store and why he recently filmed a portion of a coming “True Blood” episode in 3-D.

Company Sells Scraps Of Michael Jackson’s Clothes As Trading Cards



Looks like Joe Jackson isn’t the only person hoping to make some money off of MJ. As if America didn’t have dozens of songs, music videos, TV appearances and ill-advised red leather jackets to remember him by, now Michael Jackson’s clothing will be sold in pieces as part of a new trading card series from Panini America, a memorabilia company that is apparently as bad as coming up with collectibles as they are with coming up with sensible company names.

According to their site, the clothes “were worn by the King of Pop himself from 1971 through 1974 during many memorable performances, including The Flip Wilson Show, American Bandstand, Soul Train, and televised specials anchored by such luminaries as Bob Hope and Diana Ross.” Using words that we ourselves would have used, except to make fun of them, two years ago the company “purchased the history-soaked pieces of sartorial splendor at auction two years ago — and cut them up.”

In case you for some reason want to own 1/30 of a polyester suit coat MJ wore for 15 minutes in 1973, the
Official Michael Jackson Trading Card Set will be available at Target next week. As to who you would possibly trade these cards with, that’s between you and the other fanatical collectors.

BBC wins bidding war to show UK version of The Voice


 



The show, which made a record-breaking debut in the Netherlands earlier this year, will be shown on BBC One in 2012.
 
A US version of the show, featuring Christina Aguilera on the judging panel, debuted on NBC in April.
 
"It's a big, exciting and warm-hearted series and will be a fantastic Saturday night event," said BBC One controller Danny Cohen.
 
The show was devised by John de Mol, who created the Big Brother format, who says it "stands for a new generation in its genre".
 
The programme sees four judges each select a team of contestants during a blind audition process.
 
Two singers from each team are then be pitted against each other, and after singing the same song, one is eliminated.
 
Remaining contestants will compete in a series of live broadcasts, with the TV audience helping judges to decide who will proceed.

Former X Factor stars Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole are among those who have been tipped to act as judges in the show.

Melissa George: I need a dialect coach to get back my Aussie accent



There’s a scene in the film where you wear an open shirt with breast pumps attached to yourself – what was that like?

I came up with the idea for that scene where she wears the back-pack pumping system for breast milk while she’s doing the housework. We were all laughing and the guys on set couldn’t believe it. I was like: ‘Are you kidding? This is what women have to do.’ Mandy Moore said I was nuts for doing it. We got the machine from New York, where they’re pretty popular. If you’ve got to pump so you get a night’s sleep, that’s what you have to do.

What role has had the biggest impact on your career?
Playing Laura in In Treatment, which I got the Golden Globe nomination for last year. It’s a two-hander in a room and it’s rare to have that without being upstaged by the genre – it’s acting in its rawest form. The people who I wanted to notice my work did after that – maybe they didn’t before. I come from a small town in Australia and I couldn’t believe I was sitting at the awards ceremony with all these amazing actresses. I just remember whispering to Jessica Lang that she was such an inspiration to me.

What do you think perceptions of you as an actress are?
When you do different things like Grey’s Anatomy, then hit horror films like 30 Days Of Night and The Amityville Horror and then comedies, it’s difficult to know how people perceive you. I just love the variety and I want a diverse career. Doing things like working with Clive Owen in Derailed or being in Friends – I couldn’t believe I got in there for the last season, it’s all amazing.

Cameron Diaz changed for King Firth, is still not good enough to work with him



Cameron Diaz has revealed she has toned down her ladette behaviour in Colin Firth's company.

The Bad Teacher star is filming the remake of Gambit with the Oscar-winning actor, who she describes as "delicious", and reckons she has become more of a lady.

"He is so refined and now I am 38, I don't behave like that any more. I have become more refined in the last six months - actually, since I knew I was doing a movie with Colin Firth," she said on The Graham Norton Show.


And Cameron confessed working with her ex Justin Timberlake in Bad Teacher was "heaven".

"We love each other as friends and we love to laugh together. Making a movie together was great. It was heaven," she revealed.

The actress added: "Nothing that we are doing in the film is sexy. We made a conscious effort to make the least sexy sex scene that has ever been caught on film and I really believe we succeeded.

"I don't think I could have achieved it with a guy I didn't know and didn't know where the boundaries were but it is so clearly defined between Justin and I because we're such good friends and we've been there and done that."

I only wanted an excuse for a King Firth post tbh. Spam with pics and gifs, plz!

Pal: 'Heartbroken' Hef Thought Crystal Was the One



Moments after Hugh Hefner sadly confirmed that his wedding to 25-year-old model Crystal Harris won't be happening this Saturday -- she had a "change of heart," he said -- former girlfriends began tweeting their support, including Kendra Wilkinson. "We r comin over w some jack n coke," she promised, though the 'Girl Next Door' was only joking because she was en route to Chicago at the time. (She later deleted the "jack" tweet.)


Those close to the Playboy icon tell me he is coping, but truly heartbroken by Crystal's decision to leave him.

"He will die of a broken heart," a friend says. "He loves Crystal and wanted so much to finally be happily married to who he thought was the love of his life."

Over 300 people had been invited to the wedding, which would have been the third for the 85-year-old Hef. Now the strawberry wedding cake and pink gown will never be touched as the back yard wedding plans are scrapped.

"The breakup is a heartbreaker, but better now than after the marriage," Hugh tweeted last night. Hef also showed he has a sense of humor about this setback, saying "Since we're not getting married on Saturday, I've scheduled a movie: 'Runaway Bride.' Seems appropriate."

Round 2: Chris Brown vs Odd Future

You may recall this post in which Chris Brown came after Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future for their "demonic music". Now, there's this....



Another day, another Twitter beef. This time, it's two of R&B's biggest acts squaring off.

Earlier today, Chris Brown, for some odd reason, sent a tweet out to his followers comparing Frank Ocean to "a young James Fauntleroy and Kevin Cossom." [who and who?] Frank—who has repeatedly mentioned not wanting to be called an "R&B artist"—took offense to Brown's comment and compared him to "a young Sisqo or Ike Turner."

Still a bit unsure as to why Chris took it so far but hey, we expect that from the kid.

Angelina Jolie Visits Syrian Refugee Camp in Turkey


Angelina Jolie waves to the media after landing at Hatay Airport on Friday (June 17) in Turkey.

The 36-year-old actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador traveled to a Syrian refugee camp in the southern Turkish town of Altinozu.

Angelina was greeted with a banner that read “Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome” at the camp, where she met with refugees who’ve fled the bloody protests in Syria.

Earlier this year, Angelina visited Afghanistan and also traveled to Tunisia to meet with refugees from Libya.

More than 9,000 civilians are currently living in the Altinozu camp, which is being managed by the Turkish Red Crescent.

Speaking during her trip, Ms Jolie praised the work of the Turkish authorities for welcoming the refugees, but said she was "disturbed" by the children's understanding of their situation.

The UN says that at least 1,100 people have died in Syria as the government has cracked down on demonstrations that began in March.

Miley in Manila



"I FEEL like I’m on a game show,'' Miley Cyrus said as press con host and MYX VJ Nikki Gil picked questions for her out of a fishbowl.

It was the day before her concert at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds and Miley was sitting inside Martinis in Mandarin Oriental for a quick press conference. "I’m a little thrown off `coz of the time difference but it's awesome,'' Miley said.

The concert is part of her Corazon Gitano (Gypsy Heart) tour and the Philippines is the tour’s only stop in Asia.

"It's my first time here but my brother’s been here before and he told me that the crowd is awesome."

After Manila, Miley is off to Australia for a few shows before heading back to the US for a break.

Miley gamely answered questions from the press, speaking very fast and talking with her hands. She comes off smart and strong, opinionated and in control. She leaves you with no doubt that her days as Hannah Montana are long over—she's all grown up now.

She even has a grown up way of dealing with fame and the persistent paparazzi. "I deserve respect, I'm a person. You just draw boundaries, respect other people and you do it in a way that is sweet and they don't want to be mean to you or write bad things. If you demand respect, you get it."

Although she's lived with fame for almost half her life, Miley seems level-headed and well-adjusted. And unlike a lot of celebrities her age, she refuses to turn herself into an internet reality show. "People don't have to know what I eat everyday or what time I'm going to sleep or what I’m doing every second."

After the press con, MCA Music Inc. presented her with a platinum award for her albums "Can't Be Tamed," "The Time Of Our Lives" and "Breakout," she said, "Thank you. This is definitely going up in my house," she said.

Miley says she's learned to live with "creepy dudes hiding in bushes," rumors and misconceptions about her – because in the end, it's her work that matters. "If I'm creating, I'm happy."

At 21 years old, she has been arrested and charged for three domestic violence altercations with the father of her child, Gary Shirley. 

Portwood isn’t alone among MTV's troubled teen moms. Cast member Jenelle Evans was arrested in October for possession of marijuana, in March for assault, and recently completed a stint in rehab.

John Galliano not selling perfume, Taylor Momsen also not helping according to HuffPo




While the incident may be months behind us, the scandal surrounding designer John Galliano's anti-Semitic tirade is still affecting the Galliano brand.

Women's Wear Daily reports that Perfume Holding, the Franco-Italian company producing Galliano's second fragrance Parlez-Moi d'Amour, is reevaluating its U.S. plan for the perfume. The launch is currently delayed stateside.

Retailers in Germany and Britain were hesitant about stocking the new fragrance. In Israel, unsurprisingly, the brand has suffered a great deal, and The Globe and Mail reported back in March that certain Canadian retailers had pulled the product from their shelves.

However, the drama surrounding the Galliano name has had little impact in France and Italy. Perfume Holding VP Brigitte Wormser told WWD that consumers there seem to have no issue with the brand itself, noting, "There are other brands whose namesake designer is no longer present, and who sell perfectly well." She added, "Everyone knows John was sick at the time," and compared the scenario to supermodel Kate Moss' difficult time, saying, "We have all forgotten now that she messed up."

Maybe. But another a possible strike against Parlez-Moi d'Amour might just be its spokesmodel, Taylor Momsen, whose less-than-stellar reputation is probably not doing much to boost sales.

Ben and Amber Sessions thought they’d scored a major bargain when they found a five-bedroom house in the rural Idaho countryside for less than $180,000. But the dream house they purchased in 2009 turned out to be infested with hundreds upon hundreds of snakes, reports the AP. Throngs of snakes crawled beneath the home's siding. At night, the young couple said they would lie awake and listen to slithering inside the walls. "It was like living in one of those horror movies," said Ben Sessions, 31, who says he killed 42 snakes in one day before he decided he couldn't do it anymore.
