Beyonce Relives Wedding For ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ Video


Beyonce is resetting her original goal of having a baby by age 30 (she turns 30 on September 4!), but what Queen B does have right now is a marriage to Jay-Z, a new number one album and a new music video that has the superstar reliving her dream wedding.

“Forty, that’s a good one,” Beyonce told Access Hollywood of her revised motherhood plan in a new interview on the set of her music video for her latest hit, “Best Thing I Never Had.” “Before I hit the age of 40, I’d love to have some children. I would love to direct, continue to learn videos and maybe by then a film, a short film… I love documentaries.

“I just hope that I’m happy and into my children and well-adjusted and still making music, if that makes me happy at that time,”
the “Run the World” singer added.

Beyonce’s always known what she wants, and though she’s never mentioned a second wedding on her “to-do” list, the singer recently relived her big day while shooting a music video for her number one album, “4,” – but husband Jay-Z was replaced!

Before she was famous: Watch Adele perform in rare 2008 video

The distance between Adele’s lovely, competent debut 19 and her chart-ruling, music-business-buoying sophomore effort 21 was only two short years. But really, the Adele that we’re currently enjoying (especially the Adele tearing the walls down with “Rolling in the Deep” night after night) is light-years removed from the Adele who first tried to win our hearts a few years back.

That point was driven home when Billboard recently resurrected a fascinating piece of video. It’s Adele performing “Chasing Pavements,” the Grammy-winning single from her first album, in a stripped-down, unplugged environment as part of a performance series for the industry mag’s website.

Her unmissable voice has obviously always been there, but what’s jarring about that performance is the then-teenage Adele’s almost complete lack of confidence. She seems to want to disappear into herself, and her delivery seems slightly perfunctory. As anyone who has caught Adele live in the past few months knows, she is an exceptionally dynamic performer whose ease and energy at the microphone has profoundly contributed to her success on the road, on the radio, and at the cash register.

What do you think? Is there a big difference between the Adele of two years ago and the Adele of today? And don’t you think “Chasing Pavements” should have been as big a hit as “Rolling in the Deep”?

Jane Lynch and Mark Salling Respond to Glee Casting News, Graduation


The cast of Glee will look very different on season four. But at least two of our favorite characters won't be going anywhere: Sue Sylvester and Noah "Puck" Puckerman.

In response to the announcement that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will all be exiting the series in 2012, Jane Lynch and Mark Salling recently spoke out on the shocking development.

"[Creator Ryan Murphy] rarely makes bad calls," Lynch said. "But I think it's kind of cool that they will graduate. And I also think it's kind of cool that the teachers get to stay."

Salling, meanwhile, told E! News he had "no idea" the casting move was coming: "I'm just grateful to be there and have a job and be around as long as they need me to be and want me."

Could he see any of the exiting actors starring in a spin-off, an idea gaining momentum among fans?

"I'm not a writer, but I can see that being a possibility," Salling said. "I think that's a good idea."

What Real Housewives' Kelly Bensimon Does– And Doesn't–Miss About Bethenny Frankel


Real Housewife of New York Kelly Bensimon is happy for Bethenny Frankel's success and spinoff show. No, really.

"I love it when people do well," she told me during our exclusive interview with her as she showed us around East Hampton. "The better that she does, the better the franchise of Housewives does."

However, Bensimon did admit that she doesn't miss the pair's epic catfights, though she thinks other people do....

"Everybody...every single person...misses the altercations between Bethenny and I," she told me while showing me around Wolffer Estate Stables (where Sonja Morgan took an on-camera tumble while horseback riding with Kelly). "For whatever reason, they just love the fact that we fight for four minutes of television. Do I miss fighting with her? I don't like fighting. Do I miss her on the show? She was fun."

Kelly was in town this weekend for both work and fun. She hosted two parties this past weekend: one charity shopping event and another Havaianas flip-flop fete.

And the busy mom of two shared that she's currently dating a few eligible men.

"I'm actually just seeing a lot of different people and just doing the dating process," she shared over cocktails at Cyril's Fish House in Amagansett after we hit the beach. "I was married for such a long time and then I just took a break from just dating in general to get my feet firmly on the ground...now my girls are good and I'm feeling really good about where I am and life and work and everything and now I'm ready to bring someone into my life and share what I have."

What's most important to the single mom is someone who can make her laugh. "I love Jason Segal," she confessed of her celebrity crush, "Jimmy Fallon's married but I'm obsessed with Jimmy Fallon. I just like really fun, charming guys who are just having a good time and don't take life too seriously."

Although she indulged her infamous sweet tooth at Scoop du Jour ice cream parlor during our day out, Kel said she tries to practice moderation and avoid carbs at night.

"I work out six days a week. I'm either at SoulCycle, which is a forty-five minute class...or I just get my sneakers on and I just go running for twenty minutes," she explained.

The reality star and model, who already has a jewelry line, is writing a self-improvement book to be released next year featuring 40 of her own recipes.

This isn't her first time as an author, either. The East Hampton homeowner has already published a book called In the Spirit of the Hamptons.

Chuck Final Season Scoop: Morgan and Chuck's New "Intersect"ion and a Possible Casey Romance?



No amount of five-dollar footlongs will extend Chuck beyond its final, 13-episode season this fall. But series co-creator Chris Fedak tells TVGuide.com that knowing this is the end gives them the opportunity to wrap up its stories in a satisfying way for their loyal, sandwich-filled fans.

At the end of Season 4, we saw Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) finally tie the knot, purchase the Buy More and start their own freelance spy agency. Meanwhile, pal Morgan (Joshua Gomez) got a surprise when he slid on some shades meant for Chuck and accidentally uploaded the Intersect. "You have the skeleton of a new show," Fedak says. So, what's next? Will Chuck and Co. get a happy ending?

How does Morgan handle having the Intersect in him? Does he handle it differently from how Chuck did in the first season?
Fedak:
Chuck having the Intersect, it was like, "Please get it out of my head. I want my life back." Morgan thinks it's the beginning of only awesome things. Morgan is incredibly stoked to have the Intersect inside of him. Here's a guy who for years has been Chuck's best friend. Chuck has helped out Morgan so many times and saved his bacon from the fifth grade on, and that is their relationship. And now Morgan is the guy who has the supercomputer in his head and has all these abilities, so he's jazzed and excited to be on the team and to be a part of it. He just wants to be a spy right now.

Taylor goes to lunch, hangs out in Central Park, covers Bon Jovi, and has a major concert scare



“Taylor Swift hits the stage during her Speak Now world tour on Tuesday (July 19) in Newark, New Jersey.
The 21-year-old singer had trouble during her encore performance of “Love Story.” Typically, she soars above the entire audience in a standalone “Romeo and Juliet”-style balcony structure. But yesterday, the balcony went up 200 feet in the air, abruptly stopped, and rocked from side to side.
Taylor looked terrified, looking up at the production team to see if everything was going to be alright. She never missed a note and finished the concert like a pro even though the balcony never finished its journey (and had to land in the middle of the audience)

OK! EXCLUSIVE: Jill Zarin Believes in Breakfast


Being a reality star and working mom keeps Jill Zarin very busy. Although every minute counts, the Real Housewives of NYC star, 46, always makes time for the first meal of the day. She wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Always eat breakfast,” she tells me. “Eat something. Start your engine. It doesn’t have to be a full breakfast – it could be an orange. If you don’t start your engine, your body thinks it’s starving itself, and it won’t let you burn calories. Your body is tricked into thinking it’s going to be starved and it’s saved as fat. That’s what I think. Once you start eating, your body’s like ‘OK, store’s open.’ [laughs] Business is open.“

But that’s not her only food rule.

“Try not to eat past 7:00 at night,” she says. “That’s when people tend to put on weight, because they eat at night and you’re not moving around enough to burn anything if you’re laying around. Try to eat within working hours. I say eat within working hours, 8-6, and don’t eat after those working hours. Don’t eat after 6 or 7.”

There’s a bonus.

“You feel skinny in the morning,” she says. “Your stomach’s going to be flat.”

Final tip?

“Make sure you’re hydrated. It’s going to be a hot summer. Drink, drink, drink. And if you don’t like water, then drink lemonade, drink iced tea. Drink!”

TV 'Law and Order: SVU' Plans Schwarzenegger Love Child Scandal Episode

 
The Arnold Schwarzenegger love child scandal will serve as the inspiration for an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," TV Line reported Tuesday.

The revelation that Schwarzenegger, 63, had fathered a child with a former housekeeper came only a week after he and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, announced they had separated in May
.
The housekeeper had worked in the Schwarzenegger family's home for 20 years.

Sources close to "Special Victims Unit" said the episode concerns a philanthropist in his 50s from one of "New York's royal families" whose affair with someone in the family's inner circle produced a love child.

The crime investigated by the "Special Victims Unit" detectives will involve the wealthy, entitled son of the philanthropist and his wife.

The Schwarzenegger-inspired "Special Victims Unit" episode will air this fall during the show's 13th season.

Rosario Dawson: Bikini Bod for 'Shape' August 2011!

 

Rosario Dawson rocks a white bikini on the cover of Shape’s August issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On growing up with a health conscious mother: “My mom was practicing vegan and raw diets years ago, so I understood eating healthy at a young age. We even belonged to the local co-op. I mean, we had Spam too, because we were poor and had to take whatever we could get, but we stopped eating white bread when I was 6.”

How Pilates shaped her body: “After just a couple of weeks, I noticed a physical change, especially in my posture. Now I stand different, I sit differently. I don’t love working out, but I can honestly say I miss Pilates and how it makes my body feel. And there’s nothing like it when those endorphins kick in.”

In the beginning, Love Bites on NBC showed so much promise — a dramedy-anthology featuring popular stars like Becki Newton and Greg Grunberg that creator Cindy Chupack described as Love, American Style meets Love Actually. Unfortunately, a bad combination of too many cooks (it went through three regime changes at NBC) and an ambitious conceit (new stars every week!) ended up side-lining the show. Chupack also reduced her role to that of a consultant because she had a baby on the way.

'Twilight' at Comic-Con 2011: Talking to the fans at Camp Breaking Dawn



Twilight is hosting a presentation in Comic-Con’s massive Hall H for the upcoming first edition of Breaking Dawn. But fans were already camped out in anticipation for the Twilight panel days ago. Walking through Camp Breaking Dawn can feel a bit like meandering through a candy-colored Hooverville, with various forms of bedding (sleeping bags, towels, foldable chairs, inflatable pool toys) spread in every direction.

The six-person team at the head of the line arrived on Monday morning. Actually, they technically arrived on Sunday evening, but they were somewhat sternly chased off by Comic-Con officials, who told them to return the next day. At that point, an intriguing push-pull developed between the line-sitters and Comic-Con personnel, to the point that the superfans essentially staged a sit-in to establish their rights at the head of the line.

“They kept telling us, ‘You are not a line. You are not official. Come back on Wednesday,” explains Robert Curry of San Diego. “So we started self-regulating.”

Lionsgate Schedules THE CABIN IN THE WOODS for April 13, 2012



The Cabin in the Woods
will finally hit theaters on April 13, 2012.  In theory.  As THR points out, the horror film was originally slated for a 2009 release.  The first official date was February 5, 2010.  That became January 2011.  MGM’s financial woes eventually turned the release into "To Be Determined."  Lionsgate reached a deal to distribute The Cabin in the Woods a couple months ago with whispers of an October release.  Instead, Lionsgate chose April 13, 2012, where Cabin will face Lockout and Movie 43.

Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kanz, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins star in the film.  Drew Goddard directed the movie from a script he co-wrote with his Buffy/Angel boss Joss Whedon which deconstructs the “cabin in the woods” horror subgenre.  This has been on my Most Anticipated list for a couple years now.  Really hope this date sticks.

Today's Inspirational Words from Lady Gaga

Here is a new entry from V Magazine's "From the Desk of Lady Gaga" series:

V MAGAZINE GAGA MEMORANDUM No. 2

Date: JULY 2011
Re: I DON’T SPEAK GERMAN BUT I CAN IF YOU LIKE
From: M†SS.GAGA
To: STEPHEN GAN

Art is a lie. And every day I kill to make it true. It is my destiny to exist halfway between reality and fantasy at all times. They call me “theatrical,” but I posit profusely that I am theatre, and that theatre is me. I am a show with no intermission. It is this thing that summons me from the depths of reality and reminds me that the power of transformation is endless. That I (we) possess something magical and transformative inside —  a uniqueness and specialness waiting to be exiled from the depths of our identity. I have said before that I am a master of escapism, which many attribute to my wigs, performances, and my natural inclination to be grand, but perhaps that is also a lie. Maybe I am not escaping. Maybe I am just being. Being myself.

Rihanna: 'Madonna is my biggest inspiration'


Rihanna has named Madonna as the pop icon who has inspired her the most.

The 'California King Bed' star praised the 52-year-old singer for being able to continually reinvent herself successfully after three decades in the industry.

When asked about her inspirations, Rihanna told We Love Pop: "I think that Madonna was a great inspiration for me, especially on my earlier work."

She added: "If I had to examine her evolution through time, I think she reinvented her clothing style and music with success every single time.

"And at the same time remained a real force in entertainment in the whole world."


Speaking about her own experience with image changes, the 23-year-old said: "I'm over my Rated R period, even though it was very successful for me.

"It was tough because I was forced to maintain a certain image for so long and now I just want to get out of that.

"I want to have more fun with my music, my image and be more experimental. So, with Loud, I got a bit more rebellious and did whatever I wanted to do. I reinvented my image and took creative control."


Rihanna recently became more popular than Lady GaGa on Facebook. She also insisted that she could never dress like the 'Born This Way' star.

Demi Lovato: I'm Not Fully Recovered Yet


In Demi Lovato's latest hit "Skyscraper," she sings about being torn down, but rising above.

It's an appropriate comeback anthem for the singer, who completed treatment for "emotional and physical" issues in January, but still considers herself on the road to recovery.

She's not completely healed, Lovato, 18, tells AOL Music. "This is an ongoing process, and the hardest part about these diseases is that they're things that I'm going to have to face every day for the rest of my life."

Since her three-month stay at the center, she says she's come a long way in her battle with bulimia, anorexia, self-mutilation, depression and bipolar disorder.

"I'm going to mess up, and I'm not going to be perfect," she says. "But as long as I try every day to get better and better myself, then I'm one step ahead of where I was before."

Her issues, she says, stem from her childhood – not from her life in the spotlight. "They are issues that every girl deals with," she explains. "Cutting has become so common with so many girls, and in almost every family, people have tried it or experimented with it. And there is addiction all over the place."

Still, "it doesn't make it easier being in front of cameras while I'm trying to be in recovery from an eating disorder."

The sacrifice is one she's willing to make, even if she once considered putting her career on hold.

"I thought, 'Music is something that keeps me healthy and that has saved my life at one point,' " she says. "I love it, and I'm not going to give it up."

VMA Nominations Inspire Lady Gaga Fans to Attack Adele’s Weight on Twitter

 
Listen Little Monsters, we know you’re less than thrilled that Lady Gaga didn’t score as many nominations for the 211 MTV Video Music Awards as you may have wanted or expected, but do you think she’d be pleased that you are attacking the appearance of a singer who did score some nods?

It’s less paws up than claws out. It’s also a pretty poor reflection of the message Mother Monster preaches.

After Adele, whose 21 is top-selling album of the year by far, scored an impressive seven VMA nominations, including Video of the Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video, and Gaga scored only one major nomination – Best Female Video for “Born This Way” – the pop star’s fans started getting personal on Twitter.

Lindsay Lohan's Probation Officer is out to get her

The probation officer who asked Judge Stephanie Sautner to violate Lindsay Lohan's probation was called on the carpet by the judge, who said the officer was totally inaccurate and the judge strongly implied the probation officer was unfairly gunning for Lindsay.

The probation officer wanted to violate Lindsay's probation for 3 reasons, based on the probation report obtained by TMZ.

-- Lindsay did not pay $3,900 in fees for her community service. But probation was wrong, because the fees are accrued over a 3 year period, and, as Judge Sautner wrote in the margins of the report, "Probation concedes $3,900 is not currently owed."

-- Lindsay did not return the call of the probation officer. Again, the probation officer was wrong. As Judge Sautner wrote in the margins, "Probation now states [Lindsay] phoned 3 times on 6/15 and left message."

-- Lindsay did not present proof to the Probation Department that she was enrolled in her community service program, the shoplifting program, and the psychological counseling program. Again, the probation officer was off base. The judge wrote, "[Lindsay] was ordered to provide proof to court on 7/21 -- not to probation."

The probation officer has been trying to get several judges to violate Lindsay's probation for a while now and have her thrown in jail, and people connected with Lindsay think the probation officer has an ax to grind.

Who Is Wendy Deng??

Two days ago she was simply Rupert Murdoch’s Chinese wife, a tall beauty for whom the media tycoon brutally abandoned his wife of 32 years, Anna.

Now Wendi Deng Murdoch is a global heroine, a tigress who leapt to claw and punch a man throwing a plate of foam (but it could have been anything) – into her 80-year-old husband’s face at Tuesday’s House of Commons committee hearing.

Even Murdoch’s 102-year-old mother Dame Elisabeth, who has said that after what her son did to Anna she ‘finds it hard to accept Wendi’, must have been impressed.

It hasn’t always been like this. Until now, most people have paid obeisance to the girl born into what she has called ‘poverty’ in provincial China purely because she is Mrs Rupert Murdoch although, it must be said, she carries off the role with ease, having both style and brains.

They have viewed her as a ruthless opportunist whose capture of Rupert when he was in his late sixties and she a mere 31, was an act of naked ambition in the style of fiction’s faithless social climber Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair.

Prince Albert Strikes Back at Marriage Rumours



The honeymoon is over – at least for the press.

Dogged by persistent rumors that their early July wedding was not going to take place because of new revelations about the groom's private life – and continuing press speculation concerning the nature of their marriage – Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco addressed representatives of three news outlets on Wednesday evening, only hours after the couple returned from their honeymoon.

"We want to express our outrage about these rumors. It's unbearable," declared Albert, 53, reports Nice-Matin, one of those publications hastily summoned to meet with the newlyweds. The newspaper described the prince as "visibly ... wounded."

"What is regrettable is that the media seized on these rumors without verifying their information," complained Albert, as his bride sat beside him, holding his hand. "I find it unworthy of your colleagues. I have always respected the freedom of expression. But the dissemination of false information is lamentable and subject to criminal penalties."

Collapse )

At the end of the short, twelve-minute briefing, Prince Albert II stated flatly, “I won’t reply to any questions.” He then turned and, putting a gentle hand on her knee, asked his wife if she had anything to add. "No," she replied, "I think that says it all."

'He's a tiger,' Stodden told E! Online about Hutchison's bedroom performance after her husband said he wished he had been a virgin on their wedding night. 'It's fine that he wasn't.'

'You're so bad,' Hutchison said, nuzzling his pouting wife in the interview which aired today.

First Look: Lily Collins as the fairy-tale princess in 'Snow White' -- EXCLUSIVE

 
Presenting… the fairest of them all! “I keep saying to everyone I feel like I’m walking into a snow globe, a fairy tale, every single day,” says Lily Collins, star of Relativity Media’s as yet untitled Snow White, which co-stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen. “It’s so epic. I was part of a costume ball today, so you can only imagine the outfits.”

The movie, out March 16, is directed by Tarsem Singh (The Fall, the upcoming Immortals) and promises a world as surreal as anything dreamed up by the Brothers Grimm. Click through for more details…
Collins (The Blind Side) describes this Snow White as “a joyful person who lights up a room and maintains grace at all times.” With a father played by the recently cast Sean Bean, she’s fine as long as the King is around, but… we all know how that turns out. “She’s a naive innocent young girl who turns into a woman and really finds herself,” Collins says.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NYC FINALE

Bethenny spotted cackling at the lackluster storylines this season



Tonight, the fourth season of the Real Housewives of New York City come to an end as the finale airs on Bravo at 10/9c!

To close out the Bethenny-less season, LuAnn plans for a big anniversary celebration for her 1-year relationship (with perhaps a guest appearance from Natalie Cole), and gasp — 53-year-old Ramona Singer is potentially celebrating something much bigger, another baby! Riiiight. But before the ladies get too Ramotional about this, Ramona will need to confirm that she is in fact pregnant and discuss this with husband Mario. Is Ramona really pregnant and how will the others react to the (maybe) big news? 

And just in case you’re one of the two people wondering, Ramona is definitely NOT pregnant!

Watch What Happens Live - The guests tonight are Sonja Morgan, and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps who will be performing. Andy Cohen also promises Sonja will perform her burlesque live on the show.

Meanwhile Kelly Bensimon continues to prove she’s still as cra cra as ever! Days after telling E! News she missed Bethenny Frankel on the RHONY, Kelly is now taking back what she said in a new interview.

While taking to the Boston Herald, they brought up her E! interview during which Kelly had a different take on things. “They asked if I missed Bethenny,” Kelly said of her chat with E!. “Do the viewers miss her? The viewers miss the altercations. I miss my kids when I’m away, not a castmate. But I wish her well.” Allrighty.

Will Public Accept New A-List Polanski Film?

The acclaimed director's first film following his recent house arrest



Director Roman Polanski has completed his first new film since he was detained by Swiss authorities because of a decades-old sex abuse charge involving Polanski and a 13-year-old girl. At the time Polanski accepted a plea bargain but he fled the United States in 1978 just before his sentencing and he’s managed to resist extradition to the United States ever since. Although Polanski has been living and working in Europe for the past three decades, the recent incident re-ignited the controversy and sent much of Hollywood into two separate camps regarding how Polanski should be dealt with this many years after the fact.

Will Polanski’s scandal affect the reception of this film? “Carnage,” based on the Tony Award-winning play “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza, features a dream cast of Oscar favorites including John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet. It tells the story of two sets of parents who meet up after their young sons are involved in a schoolyard fight.

WOW I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS DEVELOPMENT! What about you guys???

Oh.

 


Legendary Comics has posted a trailer for Frank Miller’s 9/11-themed superhero graphic novel, Holy Terror, ahead of its official unveiling at Comic-Con. The Sin City creator’s latest work has been a long time coming; original planned as a vehicle for Batman, it now apparently stars a Miller-created character called The Fixer who lives in the New York-evoking Empire City.

“I decided partway through it that it was not a Batman story,” Miller told the Los Angeles Times last year. “The hero is much closer to Dirty Harry than Batman. It’s a new hero that I’ve made up that fights Al Qaeda.”

Holy Terror will be released in September, ten years after 9/11.

 Call it “Muslim Modern Family.”

Cable channel TLC is hoping to do for Muslims what it did for polygamists and Sarah Palin -– put a new spin on controversial subjects that people often make judgments about without knowing the whole story.

The reality show “All-American Muslim” will follow the lives of five Muslim American families, some of whom are related, who reside in Dearborn, Mich., a suburb of Detroit that has a large Muslim population. The show will debut in late November.

New Twilight footage includes nudity, and Jacob crossing a major line. Plus new details of the bloody birth scene!



We got to see three new scenes from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 — including naked Bella and Edward! And Jacob crossing the one line you never expected him to cross.

Also, the movie's cast discussed the crazy birth scene, and Taylor Lautner talked about the challenge of portraying a grown man "imprinting" on a CG baby. Spoilers ahead...

The director of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon, didn't hold back at all on sharing some serious footage from the film with us. Including some stuff that's not in the books.

The key thing Condon promises: the last half hour of Breaking Dawn part 1 is a full-on horror movie, from the wolf attack to the birth scene. It won't feel like a shmoopy romance, but a full-bore horror film.

Interview With the Vampire to be turned into a Graphic Novel



Yen Press, the graphic novel and manga imprint at Hachette, will adapt Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire into a new graphic novel with the same plot but a new point of view: the story will be told by Claudia, a child who is transformed into a vampire by Louis, the narrator of the original novel. Newcomer Ashley Marie Witter will illustrate the story, which will be published as a single volume in fall 2012.

Interview with the Vampire is the first book in Rice's 10-volume series The Vampire Chronicles, and Rice said she is "intrigued" by the idea of retelling her story from a different point of view. "I have gone all through The Vampire Chronicles writing from the point of view of different characters, so it is completely legitimate to do that," Rice said. "Lestat [another vampire] tells you a completely different version of events than Louis. Who do you believe?"

Jedward have sparked rumours that they may be about to support Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale UK tour.

The X Factor stars told a fan on OKTV that they were not allowed to discuss the project.

They were asked if there was any plans for them to record with the US pop legend.

They said: "Something really cool's gonna happen on the Britney Spears tour okay, we can't talk about it now but it's gonna happen."

Jedward recently hit the headlines when they revealed that they had bought some of Britney's stage costumes. [SOURCE]

Ew. I hope they're just making a tiny little cameo or this is just isolated in Dublin and Belfast. It's so unfair that America would get Nicki Minaj and we'd get this. What a joke. There are more deserving UK artists.

Gaga's stylist moves on to hating the elderly

'Old people should just be old and go away' says Lady Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti

He's made it big in the world of fashion casting his creative flare on brands such as Mugler and is most famed for styling Lady Gaga.

But it seems that he can't help but spark controversy. Last month he talked about 'fat people' - many believing his remarks to be discriminatory - and now he has slammed the old.

'I think old people should just be old and go away,' he said, apparently without fear that his remarks could spark yet more controversy. 'It's not about being in the industry for ten years anymore: it's about good ideas.' He told Elle.

When his previous comments in the July edition of W were misconstrued for being anti-fat Mr Formichetti launched a Facebook and Twitter campaign insisting that he does work with plus-size models. Images of past editorial work with larger models were posted online, captioned: 'I know I should just leave it but...I really hate when writers just write whatever they want... 'I don't work with fat people' - why would someone say such a thing?!'

And there is more controversy to come. For his spring / summer 2012 menswear collection he's releasing an explicit sex film starring a transsexual, which will be available to view on the x-rated website XTube.com. CLASSY!

He adds: 'Me and Gaga, our motto is 'f*** fashion' because we love it so much we want to destroy it and start again and keep it fresh.' [SOURCE]

Lois Lane ditches Clark for a new man



Superman lost out on Lois Lane to this guy?

The Man of Steel has been pining for the intrepid reporter for the Daily Planet since he first leaped into American pop culture in a single bound in his 1939 comic debut. When the pair finally tied the knot in the 1990s, they became comic books’ equivalent of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor – or at least Popeye and Olive Oil.

That all changes in Superman #1, hitting stores in late September, part of DC Comics rebooting of its entire stable of comic books. Lane's new paramour, a Lothario who can't seem to keep his shirt on, is a never-seen-before co-worker at the Daily Planet, Jonathan Carroll, the Daily News has learned.

"Superman is one of the World's Greatest Super Heroes, but he can't have it all," says Jim Lee, Co-Publisher of DC Entertainment. "Many of us know what it's like to be the odd man out and we think readers will have a soft spot for Clark when they see his reaction to Lois' new boyfriend."

FANS LINE UP FOR RELEASE OF FINAL HARRY POTTER BOOK





Reading, No Sleeping, as Potter Arrives

JULY 21, 2007
NEW YORK (AP) -- Anna Todd and Kelsey Barry, both 20, jumped up and down, screaming and hugging as they touched their Harry Potter books and smelled them as if handling a newborn baby.

"It smells like fresh parchment," said Barry, among the first in line at the Barnes & Noble in Manhattan's Union Square. "It smells like magic."

For the last time, Potter dust sparkled worldwide. Like castles lowering their drawbridges, bookstores across Britain and the United States and as far away as Singapore and Sydney, unveiled their copies Saturday of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and final volume of the young wizard's adventures.

Colorado sheriff not happy with bounty hunter


A Colorado sheriff has a bone to pick with Duane "Dog" Chapman, star of the A&E show "Dog the Bounty Hunter."

Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey says Chapman excessively pepper sprayed a fugitive during a scuffle and then took him into the sheriff's office Wednesday without decontaminating the man first.

Hilkey says that put his staffers and the public in danger, while Chapman stayed outside "prancing back and forth waving his golden locks for the camera."


The sheriff says the man was taken outside and cleaned up by medical staff before being admitted to the jail.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports authorities are not investigating the pepper spray incident.

Chapman and his team didn't return an email seeking comment Thursday.

First 'Prometheus' Photo Arrives, Answers Nothing

Prometheus probably has the highest ratio of Audience Anticipation to Public Information of any movie in production.  It’s a quasi-Alien prequel (hence the anticipation), but the only solid detail we know is Prometheus takes place in outer space.  The first image released by Warner Bros. confirms that much.  Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, and Ben Foster star.  I can’t tell you definitively who is in that space suit, but my bet is on Rapace, the female lead in the movie.  We should learn more at Fox Comic-Con panel later today — check back soon for our recap.

Prometheus is scheduled for release on June 8, 2012.

10 Awesome Auto-Tuned Tracks

T-Pain is saying good-bye to a dear friend -- Auto-Tune.

The R&B hitmaker tells Billboard.com today (July 20) that he is officially trading in the audio production software for his own invention, the T-Pain Effect. The software is a joint effort with iZotope that gives users access to his "whole vocal chain" of effects, 50 beats and a full complement of recording and distribution software.

T-Pain Ditches Auto-Tune: 'You Can't Stick with One Thing Forever'

Before inventing the T-Pain Effect, the rapper/producer played a crucial role in introducing Auto-Tune into hip-hop. Soon it created a ripple effect into pop music, which had previously experienced Auto-Tune in a big way via Cher's "Believe" in 1998. The trend simmered when Jay-Z -- disturbed by the countless number of rappers jumping on the Auto-Tune bandwagon -- took it upon himself to declare the trend dead via his track "D.O.A." ("Death of Auto-Tune") on "Blueprint 3." It just hasn't been the same for T-Pain's Auto-Tune-filled career since then.

Inside Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' Engagement Party!


Before the Kardashians officially welcome Kris Humphries into the family, Khloe decided to throw a last-minute engagement party for Kim and her NBA player beau in June.

"It was insane how quickly we threw it together," Khloe, 27, wrote in a Thursday blog entry (accompanied by a whopping 81 photos). "We decided on a Monday that we were going to have it and then it took place that Thursday! We are nuts but we all have such busy schedules that this was the only time we could all do it."

"Even with just three days to pull it together, the party turned out fab,"
she added. "Kimmie and Kris loved it, which made me so happy!"

To help organize the lavish get-together, Khloe called upon party planner Sharon Sachs, who oversaw the E! star's wedding to Lamar Odom in 2009.


"She did my wedding in nine days, so I was like, 'You can put together an engagement party in three days!'" Khloe told Us Weekly in June. "It was really fun."

Nearly 50 close friends and family members attended the celebration, including several who had yet to meet the New Jersey Nets player, 26.

"Everybody had the best time and got along," Khloe told Us. "It was so sweet see everyone hang out with each other."

Charisma Carpenter: "You Need To Get It Out That I'm A Proud Latina!"



Her name is Charisma Carpenter and she's best known for playing all-American cheerleader Cordelia Chase on the hit TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But there's something many people don't know about Charisma—she's Latina! "I think it’s the best kept secret ever," said the sweet actress, whose grandfather was born in Spain. "You need to get it out that I'm a proud Latina!"

Charisma says she's been trying to tell people she's Latina for years—but they don't believe her. "They're not buying it," she says. "I feel a little rejected by the Latina community. I say that in jest—I don't sincerely mean it. But I mean...a little bit."

The talented actress, who has a huge fan base for her work on Buffy and its spinoff, Angel, thinks she knows why people don't believe she's Latina. "I guess I'm too white, too pale," she says. "I guess they've never seen me tan...I don't know."

CM Punk Invades Comic Con


Days after taking over the WWE, Triple H and head writer Brian Gerwitz hosts a Comic Con panel and gets interrupted from the real WWE Champion CM Punk.



In case you haven't been following:
  • CM Punk's contract was going to expire
  • Instead of quietly renewing his contract with the WWE, Punk goes on a tirade talking massive crap about the WWE and Vince.
  • Punk says that his last match will be against John Cena at Money in the Bank and will walk away with the WWE Championship.
  • He then gets suspended for talking crap 
  • Cena tells Vince to reinstate him so he can have the match
  • Vince reinstates Punk and threatens Cena to fire him if Punk wins the match and leaves with the title
  • CM Punk comes back and has his own contract for Vince to sign saying that Punk's face needs to be on basically everything (including bringing back those amazing ice creams), wants his own private jet, his own movie a la The Chaperone, oh and wants Vince to apologize for everything
  • Vince ends up not signing the contract
  • Money in the Bank comes around and CM Punk wins, Vince comes out and demands the Money in the Bank winner Alberto Del Rio to cash in his briefcase and defeat Punk, but Punk leaves before anything becomes official
  • Fast forward to monday and before Vince fires Cena, Triple H comes out and tells Vince that the board of directors voted to step him down therefore making Triple H in charge of  "day to day things." Cena doesn't get fired.

The shift benefits ginormous December rivals, such as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Lone Ranger, but sets Man of Steel up in a more appropriate summer movie slot.

The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-man, and The Dark Knight Rises will battle for summer 2012 supremacy, while Superman will now likely compete with Iron Man and Thor sequels in 2013.

Vanilla Ice Compares Careers With Justin Bieber - Says Bieber's Fame Won't Last


Listen up, Justin Bieber — Vanilla Ice has some words of wisdom for you.

The rapper and actor, whose real name is Rob Van Winkle, is best known for his 1989 one-hit wonder “Ice Ice Baby.” Winkle knows exactly how fickle fame can be for a child star.

“I mean, I did ‘Ice Ice Baby’ when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit,” he says. “Sold over a hundred million records. And I had a weekend that lasted about three years, and I didn’t know who I was, what’s my purpose in life.”

Winkle’s fall from fame was a steep one, with subsequent records that were poorly received, drug abuse, and a suicide attempt. In recent years, however, Winkle has begun to rebuild his career with a new album and a role in the Adam Sander comedy, I Hate You, Dad.

Bieber, who turned 17 last spring, has become more than a mere pop star. With albums, movies, perfume, and an iconic hairstyle, he’s an international brand.

“So my prediction about Bieber is that he’s going to go through one of those weekends that lasts a few years because he’s had such success as a child act,” says Winkle. “You know, then something else new will come along and he’ll be forgotten and he can try to put all the pieces back together, so it’s going to be entertaining to watch.

Exercise guru Jillian Michaels led a massive protest outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles today to demand that Ringling Bros. circus abides by Los Angeles laws forbidding sick animals from working and that the circus free the elephants from their dismal lives in chains and boxcars.

These animals should be allowed to live as nature intended—free from beatings, chains, and screaming crowds,” says Michaels, who recently visited Africa to see elephants in their natural habitat. “Their enslavement by the circus means they spend their lives in chains and stuffy train cars with no freedom to roam, and they suffer painful, fatal ailments that come from such a stressful existence.”

Because they get almost no exercise, PETA says numerous elephants used by Ringling Bros. suffer crippling arthritis — a leading cause of euthanasia for captive elephants.

Comic-Con: "Ringer" Preview



Receiving huge cheers from the fan boys and girls who packed the second biggest room in the San Diego Convention Center, Sarah Michelle Gellar returned to Comic-Con Thursday to promote Ringer, her comeback to TV after Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended eight years ago. “When you have a show like Buffy that was so perfect, you’re not looking for a show to top it. You’re not looking for show that’s completely different,” Gellar said during the panel moderated by EW’s own Kristen Baldwin. “We wouldn’t exist without fans. We wanted to come back and do a show that fans would love that would be different but still exciting.”

Hugh Jackman Reveals The Villain Of 'Wolverine 2'



Wolverine 2 is on the way and for his next adventure we know that Hugh Jackman is taking his clawed character to Japan. That’s a good thing, since Wolverine’s Japanese odyssey is one of his best story arcs in the comics, and one of the best story arcs of the 90s X-Men animated series too. It really works. 
 
Since he’s going to Japan fans of the character probably have at least some idea of who he’ll be fighting in the movie, but there was no official word on just exactly who the villain of Wolverine 2 would be… until now. Screen Rant was there at the Real Steel Comic Con panel this morning when Jackman confirmed that he’s fighting Silver Samurai, in the new Wolverine movie. 
 
Most of the movie is filming in Japan, which is good news for the devastated Japanese economy, and they’ve picked a great villain, which is good for all of us. 
 
So who is Silver Samurai? Here’s how Marvel breaks the character down: 
 
Keniuchio Harada is the mutant son of the former Japanese crimelord Shingen Harada. As a youth, Harada mastered the attendant disciplines of the medieval samurai and sought employment as a warrior for hire. Following his father’s death, Harada sought the leadership of Shingen’s Clan Yashida from his half-sister Mariko Yashida, but was opposed by the ronin Yukio and Mariko’s lover, the mutant adventurer Wolverine.
The sequel, tentatively titled The Wolverine will be directed by 3:10 to Yuma helmer James Mangold. No word yet on who they’ll cast to play Silver Samurai, but someone should probably pick up a phone and call Ken Watanabe.

Chris Brown Bitching and Whining About Condo Complaints: I'm Being Set Up By Haters!

Chris Brown is hitting back at allegations that he's the neighbor from hell, saying peeps in his building are trying to smear him and make him look bad.

Specifically, he claims one of his neighbors scratched the initials "C.B." into an elevator in an effort to make the singer look like a "reckless punk."

Chris' West Hollywood neighbors are not fans, complaining to the manager about noise, parking violations and the aforementioned vandalism.

Now, Brown has FIRED BACK on his Twitter page.


"My neighbor carves my name in our elevator to incriminate me so it looks like I'm a reckless 22 your [sic] old," the star writes.

As for photos showing Brown parking in handicapped spaces, Brown says, "My parking spaces in my building that were assigned to me when I [bought] this crib are painted over with handicap and no Parking signs."

His lawyer echoed this sentiment earlier in the week, saying the spaces are clearly Brown's and that he is taking legal action.

"A person should be able to live in his or her own company of their house!" Brown adds, pleading once again for the haters to leave him alone. "I'm barely home so these stories and accusations are so childish!"

J. Lo Source: Skeletor Nailed Some Stewardess

The surprising Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony split continues to generate rumors regarding why the seemingly-happy couple is divorcing after seven years.

Us' cover story suggests infidelity was a concern - if not an overt reason - for the twosome, parents to 3-year-old twins Emme and Max, parting ways.

At issue specifically? Anthony's fling with a flight attendant.



A source says that Anthony hooked up with a flight attendant he met aboard a private plane in 2009, and that for J. Lo, that was almost it right there.

"Marc and Jennifer almost split up over it," the source says. "Jennifer was going to leave him then, but Marc begged her to stay. They went to marriage counseling and she gave it another shot. He was someone she truly loved."

Although Anthony and the American Idol judge weathered that storm of infidelity, his jealousy over Lopez's sex symbol status and successful career continued to drive a wedge between them - one they ultimately couldn't bridge.

Marc's controlling behavior over his wife's wardrobe and business endeavors - and his own unfounded paranoia - ultimately did them in. Very sad.
