Kreayshawn: It Sucks Being White

The New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones joked that he would buy anyone a box of Junior Mints if they remembered how to spell Kreayshawn come December, when asked whether the latest white-rapper phenom is just a fad. But at the rate that she’s going, we may not just know how to spell Kreayshawn, we’ll probably also remember her given name (Natassia Gail Zolot) and that she’s a third-generation Russian-American.

NEW Femme Fatale Tour review

There have been moments, sometimes lasting years, when Britney Spears has seemed like an accessory to her own career - the public face of a vast army of producers, songwriters, choreographers, stylists, publicity agents, and marketing executives. But holding together that tangle of competing agendas is no easy task. Part of what great pop stars do is provide a sense of continuity, using the force of their personality to bridge the gaps between trends.

It cannot be an easy job, and six weeks into her Femme Fatale tour, even Britney Spears looked as though she was tired of being Britney Spears.

Christina Aguilera - Further details on the Bionic conspiracy leak out

Author: Chicago’s B96 talked about my story about the conspiracy against Christina Aguilera’s album Bionic. Actually, the story has made news everywhere and I have received mostly positive feedback with many thanking me for exposing what has been going on in the music industry for years.

Rick Sanchez from Data Analytics contacted me yesterday and informed me that “Not Myself Tonight” received excellent call-out research results in April of 2010. “She had a higher rating than just about any song on the radio at that time. It was a guaranteed hit. But something happened. And I don’t think it was something very ethical.” Mr. Sanchez noted that within one week, the call-out research scores suddenly dropped and that never happens with a single. “Usually, a song gains call-out research points or loses points very slowly.”

Mr. Sanchez revealed that in the past, call-out research scores for songs such as “I Drove All Night” by Celine Dion and “It’s Like That” by Mariah Carey had been manipulated, but nobody knew until a couple years back. “Some people may not think this is important, but call-out research scores determine radio airplay.” So, why was Christina Aguilera’s song tampered with?

“I have absolutely no direct proof, but definitely believe this is the work of Lady Gaga and her team. You would have no idea how much power Lady Gaga has (or had) in the industry. Many people I know refer to Lady Gaga as the Tanya Harding of the music industry. I hope I am wrong because I would like to think that nobody could be that vile," says Mr. Sanchez. [SOURCE]

Another still of my queen as Marilyn Monroe + NYFF slot

Between Margaret Thatcher biopic "Iron Lady" and Marilyn Monroe docudrama "My Week With Marilyn," this fall is shaping up to be the season of the 20th century iconic woman.

Now one of the films depicting those icons is getting a sizable publicity platform: The New York Film Festival announced Thursday that "My Week With Marilyn" would occupy the centerpiece slot at this year's film gathering on Oct. 9.

The Weinstein Co. release, which is directed by Simon Curtis, stars Michelle Williams as the legendary screen siren. The story is set in the summer of 1956, when Monroe, newly married to Arthur Miller, travels to a British set to film "The Prince and the Showgirl," where a production assistant soon helps her escape the pressures of Hollywood life.


Film Society of Lincoln Center chief Richard Pena, who oversees programming at the festival, said that "after seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams." The festival previously announced that Roman Polanski's "Carnage" will open the confab.

The centerpiece slot is generally given to an awards contender and can be the bellwether of Oscar heat. In 2006 the festival chose Penelope Cruz's "Volver," for which the actress wound up garnering an Oscar nomination. Still, it remains to be seen how "Marilyn's" absence from the heady mix of the Toronto and Venice film festivals will affect its prospects.

One of this season's more intriguing questions will also be how Williams fares with awards voters when the movie comes out Nov. 4. Voters tend to favor actresses playing real-life icons, but to nab a best actress Oscar nomination Williams would need to pull off a rare repeat: She was nominated for best actress for her role as an embattled wife in last year's "Blue Valentine."

Nicki Minaj To Join 'Ice Age: Continental Drift'



 Nicki Minaj and her many personas plus her command of zany vocal characterizations have served her well over the course of her career. Now, the Young Money starlet will join an all-star cast on an upcoming addition of the family-friendly movie series Ice Age: Continental Drift– applying her vocal flair to the fourth edition of the popular film franchise.

According to a report this evening (August 4) from Variety magazine, the Pink Friday diva will join comedienne Joy Behar, funnyman JB Smoove and fellow rap femme fatale Queen Latifah. Rounding out the star-studded cast are Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Aziz Ansari and Nicki’s YMCMB cohort Drake among others.

Nicki Minaj, a graduate of the LaGuardia High School Of Music & Art & Performing Arts, majored in drama while attending the famous New York institution. Employing what she’s learned as a teenager and how she’s managed to morph herself many times over in the current phase of her career, Nicki Minaj will surely be at ease playing the as-yet-unnamed character in the film.

Ice Age: Continental Drift is slated for a July 2012 release, right in time for the summer blockbuster season in what may be a sure lock for success for the film. Earlier this Spring, Canadian heartthrob and former television actor Drake was announced as an upcoming cast member.

With back to back tours, a hot-selling debut album and crazed fans imitating her look and style, Nicki Minaj continues to win big with this latest step in her growing career.

Jeremy Irons backs The Borgias



As bribery goes the 15th-century Italian story of Rodrigo Borgia and his elevation to the lowly title of Pope, takes some beating. It certainly dwarfs our current travails.

It’s claimed by historians that he “bought the largest number of votes”, while his rival, Ascanio Sforza, was “bribed with four mule-loads of silver”. We can feel slightly sorry for the mules.

Rodrigo is played by Jeremy Irons, one of Britain’s best screen actors, who, in perfect understatement, describes this rather rollicking drama as “an interesting story”.

He explains further: “It’s about a family with a familiar name but many people won’t really know much about them. It’s a very fascinating period in European history where Italy was a ferment of small nation-states and the Papacy was very rocky. The Borgias were an immigrant family from Spain who were clawing their way up to a position of power.”

The family also happened to be cutthroat and ruthless. “Everybody was in those days,” says Irons. “Life was very different and very cheap. People wore swords and daggers and poison rings. It was tougher. It was a whole different ball game.”

His character, Rodrigo Borgia, was undoubtedly larger than life and is determined to prove himself: “He was a man with great appetite, a Spaniard with a great love for food, women, power and for life. There are huge complications and inconsistencies in this character and that’s always interesting when you find someone who lives his life in a certain way. He was a man of excess and liked to take everything to the nth degree. He had 12 children for instance.

“He was a wonderful church organiser and a man who adored ceremony and procession and the theatrical side of the Christian religion and he saw the value of it. He wanted to strengthen the Vatican as a power. He was a man of God and a man who adored his children.”

I want to be the best actress I can be and that means working with the best people and taking the most challenging roles. That’s the plan and so far it’s led to some really exciting places … [the movie] is going to be really good.”

A post for the glorious new Raising Hope tag!

 

Season 1 of Raising Hope may not have been a ratings darling, but executive producer Greg Garcia knows they have something special.  And Emmy voters do, too. Last week, the show picked up two nominations — one for Best Actress in a Comedy for Martha Plimpton and another for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Cloris Leachman, who will be billed as a series regular in season 2. (Garcia jokes of the latter nomination, a result of Leachman’s week-by-week agreement to be on the show, “I congratulated her and said, ‘We loved you so much as a guest actress, we brought you back 19 times.’”)

As production on season 2 approaches, Garcia is looking at these noms as signs of good things to come. “It’s great to get any kind of recognition for our show, and certainly those two women deserve to be among the nominees,” he says.

But what exactly is to come on the gem of a show? EW called Garcia for answers…

Robert Ben Garant Adapting Japanese Graphic Novel TUX for Disney

 

http://i.imgur.com/RxNOh.jpg


The guy who co-wrote the book on writing movies for fun and profit (no, but really) has landed another gig. Robert Ben Garant, who recently released the book Writing Movies for Fun and Profit with his writing partner Thomas Lennon, has signed on to adapt the Japanese graphic novel Tuxedo Gin for Disney. The project’s title will be shortened to Tux and, according to Deadline, will center on a young street fighter who receives a tough lesson in karma upon lapsing into a coma.

As writer/artist Tokihiko Matsuura’s story goes, the fighter’s selfish earthly ways lead to him being reincarnated as a penguin, an obstacle he must overcome if he wishes to return to his less penguin-like state and former flame alike. Garant will executive produce the film alongside Isamu Kamei. In addition to Tux, Garant also has writing credits on titles such as Night at the Museum, Herbie Fully Loaded, Balls of Fury, The Pacifier, and Reno 911!. Recently, he and Garant co-wrote the screenplay for the action/comedy The Machine starring Vin Diesel.

Lady Baldga to Endorse Rogaine?



Lady Gaga is going bald due to all the chemical dyes she has used on her hair, which is all part of her flamboyant and creative package. She is turning to the product Rogaine, which is often promoted in TV commercials for arresting the baldness and promoting new hair growth. just the mention that the world’s most recognized pop diva is using this product, should be worth millions of advertising for the Rogaine company.

If Lady Gaga uses it, you can bet that her millions of followers will keep Rogaine in mind if ever they feel their hair is thinning. Lady Gaga just made Rogaine “cool” and it is no longer for the middle-aged balding man with the pot belly that is a stereotype for baldness.

The latest short haircut that Lady Gaga is sporting is what the singer is calling a “chemical haircut.” She said in a recent interview that she needed to cut her blonde hair short due to all the damage from dyes, according to Contact Music.The pop-diva is not the first celebrity to give a product an unintentional endorsement that works as an informal advertising campaign for a company. Justin Bieber did the same thing for the online photo service, Instagram, last week. With just the click of one picture sent by Bieber using this service, their website saw up to 50 new followers a minute in the next few days.

This unintentional advertising phenomenon is often seen these days with the clothes and accessories worn by Kate Middleton since she came on the royal scene. just the mention of her newest designer handbag, or the designer dress she is wearing, has worked to have the product sell-out in hours.

People imitate the celebrities, from “The Beatles” haircuts to Kim Kardashian shoes, people want to look like their idols. They want to eat what they eat and drink what they drink, this has been known by the admen since the birth of advertising agencies. this is why sports figures sell cereal and sports drinks and celebrities sell fragrances, clothes and make-up.

A celebrity endorsement is worth millions, but when luck passes your way and a celebrity comes from out of the blue starts using your product and lets it be known, you have hit the jack-pot for free advertising.

Rogaine, the brand name is made by Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products and it would be very interesting to see if the stock goes up in price since one of the most recognized women in the world has been reported as just starting to use this product.

Although most have turned their noses up at even the thought of being involved with someone else and letting their partner know while being married, their are others that are completely fine with it.

Godele To Go Country on Next Album



Adele may be single-handedly propping up the British music industry, but the north London singer is looking across the pond for her third album. The follow-up to smash-hit 21 will be inspired by American roots music, she said this week. "I want to spend some time in Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, and learn about it."

Adele, 23, has already expressed plans to write, record, produce and master her next album on her own. "I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led," she said in July. "It won't be a big production." Now the singer has revealed she is drifting away from her original R&B and girl-group influences, and exploring the country music she discovered during a US tour.

"I feel like a four-year-old in a candy shop who's discovering sweets again," Adele recently told the Sun. "The melodies and to-the-point lyrics I have found in a lot of American styles of music is definitely something I'm going be pursuing heavily from now on ... Every day is amazing when it comes to discovering new artists."

Adele is a huge success in America, topping the charts for 11 weeks. She was introduced to country music during the US tour for 19, thanks to a bus driver with good taste. "He would be rocking out to all this amazing country and blues and gospel and bluegrass, and I was constantly like, 'Who's this? Where's this from?'" she said earlier this year. "He used to radio all the other bus drivers, 'Can you pick your favourite country and blues songs and send them to me?' ... All sorts – Wanda Jackson, Garth Brooks, early Johnny Cash, early Dolly Parton, the Carter Family."

Released in January, 21 has sold almost 10m copies worldwide.

Jersey Shore Premieres to Huge Ratings...9.7 MILLION

Well, this isn't surprising: Based on preliminary Nielsen data from the nation's biggest TV markets, MTV's Jersey Shore kicked off its new season Thursday with monster ratings. Per our source, Shore attracted an estimated 4.6 rating among adults 18 to 49 and a projected 9.7 million viewers overall, shattering last January's then-record debut. While the actual ratings will go down when final national numbers are released later this afternoon, it seems very likely Thursday's season-four opener will outdraw the season-three premiere, disappointing naysayers who had hoped the Jersey phenom would start cooling down by now. We'll update with final numbers when they come in. [UPDATE]: As expected, final numbers dropped a tad but were still huge.
Per Nielsen and MTV, Thursday's Jersey Shore attracted 8.8 million viewers, up 4 percent from January's bow. 6.5 million of those viewers were between the ages of 12 and 34, the same as season three's premiere

Show

 
Montreal, August 2nd, 2011 - We are happy to announce a very special BIG SHOW we have planned for the 10th anniversary of the POP Montreal festival. SiriusXM Canada will present and broadcast a free outdoor show by The Arcade Fire on Thursday, September 22nd, at the place des Festivals of Quartier des Spectacles in downtown Montreal. The show is a grand thank you by The Arcade Fire to Montreal, Quebec and Canada and will celebrate an amazing year for the band where they toured the world in support of their outstanding record, The Suburbs, and won awards for album of the year at The Junos, The Brits, and The Grammys. "Our band couldn't exist without Montreal. After having had the chance to tour extensively around the world, we're very excited to finally come home. And to do so the Montreal way, we hoped to play a free outside show, on the very last day of summer as a big 'Thank you' to the beautiful city we love so much", says Régine Chassagne, member of The Arcade Fire, "We're happy to be a part of the 10th anniversary of POP Montreal. And we're proud to play a role in the French release of Tracy Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains, (Soulever les montagnes) -a book that has influenced our lives and our careers. Hoping to see you at the show… we're crossing our fingers for great weather." Montreal's own Karkwa, 2010 Polaris Prize winners, will open up the event.

Arcade Fire will perform two shows in Montreal, Sept. 21 and 22, according to close sources. The first show would be a ticketed one, likely at Metropolis; the second an outdoor concert at Place des Festivals. One or both of the performances would raise funds for Haitian relief, with Karkwa opening.

"Filth" follows the misadventures of Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a sex-obsessed, drug-addicted and bigoted Scottish police officer whose latest murder investigation is continually sidetracked by his own bizarre and subversive shenanigans.

Robertson is (somewhat) watched over by his sidekick of sorts, Ray Lennox (Bell), and his boss, Bob Toal (Alan Cumming).

Sounds like a tale from the man who brought us "Trainspotting," for sure!

The long-gestating project, which has been through a constantly revolving door of different producers and directors over the past few years, looks to be finally coming together with Welsh on board as a co-producer and Jon S. Baird ("Cass") set to direct. Filming will commence in Jan. 2012.

James McAvoy will next be seen (heard) as the voice of the title role in the animated feature, "Arthur Christmas," opening Nov. 23. He's currently filming the crime thriller, "Welcome to the Punch," and will appear in Danny Boyle's art heist movie, "Trance."

Jamie Bell was recently seen in "Jane Eyre" and "The Eagle" and will next be seen in the title role of Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin," opening Dec. 23.

Clooney & Keibler (aka Cloobler) "Not Just Friends at This Point" (Translation: "They are Fucking")



They met in 2006 at an Oscars party. George Clooney told her he'd seen her on Dancing with the Stars. The woman, Stacy Keibler, was flattered he knew who she was – and a bit confused.

"It's so funny," she told PEOPLE at the time. "George Clooney came up to me, and he was like, 'You're so great. You should win.' And I said, 'You watch Dancing with the Stars?' "

Now, five years later, the leggy blonde, who is also a former WWE star, is the subject of romance rumors swirling around the recently single, seasoned bachelor.

Clooney, 50, who announced his split from Italian TV host Elisabetta Canalis in June, has been clocking in time with Keibler, 31, a source tells PEOPLE.

Tabloids first buzzed about a possible new lady love in the Oscar winner's life when reports surfaced that the two enjoyed each other's company at Clooney's Lake Como villa in early July.

"I'm in heaven," Keibler Tweeted July 8. The gushing continued: "I am the luckiest girl in the world," she added the next day.

But follow-up Tweets suggested the reported Italian getaway wasn't so one-on-one. "Our whole villa, 19 of us, are on a day trip," she Tweeted July 13. She added, "You can't believe anything you read and only half of what you see!"

A source tells PEOPLE that the two "have run into each other this summer." But another source adds that they have only been "spending time together" over the last few weeks and are having "fun" – not dating. "It's not just a friendship at this point," the source says.

Clooney has been promoting his upcoming political drama, The Ides of March, and otherwise staying off the radar.

TNT renews Rizzoli and Isles for a third season!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TNT has pulled the trigger on a third season of Rizzoli & Isles.

The cable network has ordered 15 episodes, which will launch in summer 2012.

The Angie Harmon-Sasha Alexander procedural has performed well in the ratings for TNT, which recently picked up a second season of Steven Spielberg's Falling Skies and greenlit the Dallas reboot. Rizzoli & Isles launched its sophomore season this summer with 8.6 million viewers.

“This summer, Rizzoli & Isles has proven that last year’s record-breaking ratings were just the beginning of this show’s remarkable track record,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. “With a terrific cast, a top-notch production team and the kind of stories TNT fans crave, Rizzoli & Isles is poised to continue its success alongside blockbuster TNT series like The Closer and Falling Skies.”

Jay Cutler And Kristin Cavallari Are Returning The Wedding Gifts You Sent Them, With Dainty Notes In




Previously, we brought you the story of some Deadspin readers who bought gifts for Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari off their wedding registry. Then we told you that the Bears QB dumped Cavallari. Here comes the fallout, courtesy of Crate & Barrel.

Tipster Taylor, who calls himself a "die-hard Packer fan," says he bought the putative Cutlers the cheese-related gifts they desired: A cheese slate and a hard cheese knife, whatever that might be. (We slice our Velveeta with our fingers, thank you). And he attached a note to his gift.

He writes,

Perfect. I had visions of the future Mr. & Mrs. Cutler gleefully tearing open my gift. For the rest of their happily wedded lives, whenever they consumed cheese, whether with famous friends, or quietly alone in the dark watching reruns of The Hills or California Gold, it would be at the hands of a Packer fan.

Mind you, I had no intentions of using this as an opportunity to tear into Mr. Cutler like some of the ill-behaved Packer Nation. I wrote a genuinely nice card, and wished them luck, as I am about to get married in a few months and know how this stuff works. And anyways, true Packers reserve their hatred for the Vikings. And Favre. I respect our historic rivalry with the Bears.

Accordingly, one appreciative half (probably Kristin, no?) of the should-have-been Cutlers appended a curlicued note to Taylor's gift-return card, making it unlike those that have been going around. Deadspin reader Ryan received no appended note, either, as his highball glasses were returned.

So, what kind of message could Taylor have written to inspire the note from Kristin or Jay?

Azari & III's "Manic" music video



On Azari & III’s sassed and incisive dance track “Manic,” the Toronto duo throw their compressed, Morris Day-indebted vocals over a bubbling electro-house beat to nail down an infectious song about shitty people. Nice. The excellently edited video brings even more personality to bear, with the two Azaris dancing in synch and apart, shot on camera in shades while the female “manipulator” and male “freaking addict” pose with axes and black blood and drug vials. Watch it with the kids.

Desperate Housewives officially ending this season

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s a sad day for the smart and sassy suburban women on Wisteria Lane: Sources confirm that ABC will announce on Sunday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that this 2011-2012 season will be the last for long-running Desperate Housewives.

Key cast members are starting to be told, and we hear that Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Eva Longoria are shocked and saddened since the ABC Studios series created by Marc Cherry was expected to continue until 2013 after the longtime showrunner said that he wanted the show to go for nine seasons.

Kelly Osbourne defends Kate Middleton comments

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne has hit back at reports which said she was taking a pop at Kate Middleton's fashion choices.

Osbourne appeared on US chat show The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, saying if she were a future Queen she would wear a new dress every day and then give them to charity.

The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, has been frequently seen out-and-about in the same outfits and has been praised for recycling her wardrobe.

Osbourne said: "Only in this country they call it a faux pas. In England, they're like, 'Look how thrifty she's being, showing the British public that the royals are in a recession as well.' I'm sorry, but if I had that job I would only wear it once.

"If I'm going to be the future bloody Queen of England, I'm gonna wear that dress once and that's it, because I'm giving the rest of my life, all of my privacy - at least I could wear a new dress every day."

The 26-year-old took to her Twitter account today to defend the comments saying that she said Kate "deserves not should have or needs".

Osbourne continued by saying: "I just don't get why they feel the need to even make stories up about me."

Marvel Realises What People Want: More Asgardians To Appear In Thor Sequel

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Heels off the news of Marvel Studios pursuing Game Of Thrones director Brian Kirk to helm their Thor sequel, it was offhandedly mentioned and may hint at a majorly new direction from the Kenneth Branagh-directed film.

It may hint at the possibility of the sequel being more, if not completely, grounded in the magical Norse realm of Asgard. Or not even just Asgard, but also the other six realms, of nine from the Norse cosmology, that weren't explored in the original film; especially if there'll be more creatures.

Of course, if so, it could mean the characters Thor interacted with in the original film, while earthbound, wouldn't return; notably Natalie Portman's Jane Foster. However, at some point in the comics, Thor did take Jane to Asgard with him, where she was briefly granted immortality and the power of gods; which could evidently be a twist for the film.

Katy Perry Wants That #1



Katy Perry is on the verge of tying an incredible Billboard Hot 100 chart record -- held by Michael Jackson -- thanks to some help from Missy Elliott.

Jackson owns the record for the most Hot 100 No. 1 singles from one album -- with five from his 1987 classic "Bad." Presently, Perry has four No. 1s from her "Teenage Dream" set. Its fifth single, "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)," rests at No. 2 on the chart this week.

However, on Monday, Aug. 8, a new remix of "Friday" (featuring Missy Elliott) will hit radio airwaves, the web and digital retailers.

Fox: If Jay-Z is at Your Birthday Party, It's a 'Hip Hop BBQ.'



Fox didn't like President Obama's birthday party, because it didn't create any jobs. Oh, and it was also a "hip-hop BBQ," because hip hop was played along with some other music from some other genres, and, you know, black people were there.


There doesn't seem to have been a whole lot of hip hop at this BBQ, based on Politico's account, except that a DJ played some of it, along with Motown and '70s and '80s R&B -- which sounds, and correct me if I'm wrong, because I don't go to a lot of these, kind of like the musical sampling at a contemporary bar mitzvah party.

Is Jessica Simpson Pregnant Or Bloated?




  Jessica Simpson's curves were on full display Thursday, including what looked suspiciously like a burgeoning baby bump!

The 31-year-old singer/actress looked gorgeous in a sparkly gold mini dress as her fiancé Eric Johnson picked her up from a photo shoot in Brentwood.


But her choice of outfit did little to dispel the pregnancy rumors that have been surrounding her of late.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported Simpson's rep issued a statement last month insisting her client is not expecting after Jess was photographed in a form fitting bronze dress that seemed to show off a prominent baby bump.

Meanwhile, Jess has reportedly hired Gwyneth Paltrow's ubertrainer Tracy Anderson to whip her into shape for her upcoming wedding, although she claims getting fit is no new development in her life.

Louis C.K. makes peace with Dane Cook; Not the only dude with an itchy asshole

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


If you're not watching Louie, what's wrong with you? You are the reason that great shows get canceled and if FX doesn't continue this show as long as Louis C.K. is willing to do it, I will hunt you down (read: cry in bed). C.K. needs to have the same deal that Larry David has with HBO regarding Curb, basically if he's willing, then another season gets made. Last night, like every episode, had a few moments of greatness but one segment was truly brilliant.

For those who don't know the history between these two comedians, these two being C.K. and Dane Cook, there has been some bad blood flowing for years. Why? People who scrutinize these sorts of things, found similar bits in Cook's stand-up album Retaliation (aptly titled after this clip) and C.K.'s Live in Houston, performed four years prior.

As you can guess in the age of the internet, a melee of "thieving" accusations ensued and it hurt whatever credibility Cook had manage to muster (insert Cook lack of cred joke here). I won't say much more about the feud, because it's all addressed below, but I will say it makes for a fantastic six minutes of television. Even Cook seems on his game, or a game better than his game, as the two showmen air their grievances. Watch this clip, then go watch the show.



Louie airs on FX at 10:30 p.m. ET on Thursdays. Video courtesy of Videogum.

Castle Fit for a King



Kanye West books £7,000-a-night castle for Big Chill

The hip-hop superstar headlines the main stage at the Herefordshire festival on Saturday night, but won't be following the example of the fans on the campsite or crammed into motor homes.

Instead he has secured the 12-bedroom Eastnor Castle for the weekend, reports the Daily Mirror.

While fans are busy hoping it doesn't rain too much, Kanye will be able to relax in the castle's library until it is time to perform.

He has even arranged for a 16-seat limo to transport him to the festival, which is being staged at the estate's Deer Park.

Kanye is also said to have hired 20 British ballet dancers for his show, as well as requesting a mechanical platform that will allow him to hover above the crowd.

Jessie J and Metronomy are among the other acts on Saturday's Big Chill line-up, while The Chemical Brothers headline tonight and Rodrigo y Gabriela top the bill on Sunday.

Sherlock Series 2 Casting News



Fans of True Blood and the BBC’s Robin Hood will recognize this lady, it’s Lara Pulver. And according to the website Den of Geek, she’s going to be in the new series of Sherlock, playing Irene Adler in the story called A Scandal In Belgravia, which has been written by Steven Moffat.

Anyone who’s read the original story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knows that Irene Adler is often used as a sort of American love interest for Sherlock Holmes. She’s reported to be as clever as he is, and far more charming.

As the King of Bohemia himself puts it (albeit in rather sexist terms), she has “the face of the most beautiful of women and the mind of the most resolute of men.”

Lara is also set to appear in the next series of the spy drama Spooks, by which time she’ll clearly be as common a household name as Benedict Cumberbatch himself.

10-year-old Vogue model: Pretty or pretty weird?


Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau is 10, but an issue of French Vogue, in which she wears heavy makeup, stilettos and a come-hither look -- on the cover and in an inside spread -- has stirred up an adult-sized controversy.

The images of Thylane are firing arguments about the sexualization of young girls. Some see it as part of an overall recent trend toward younger models. (Although one might argue that it is hard for a young girl to get a break, given all the fortysomething movie stars hogging covers nowadays.)

Still, two young film stars have recently gone the modeling route: Elle Fanning, at 13, is the star of the Marc by Marc Jacobs fall campaign, and 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, the wholesome-looking star of "True Grit," signed a deal with Miu Miu. Actresses Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried and Lindsay Lohan also started their careers as young models. And just this week Kardashian sibling Kendall Jenner, 15, landed a swimsuit modeling contract.

And of course there are other children making their marks, with teen blogger Tavi Gevinson and seamstress Cecilia Cassini (who was 10 when she ventured into the public eye) stirring up fashion waves behind the scenes.

Thylane, who already has an impressive modeling portfolio, is the daughter of Patrick Blondeau, a former soccer star, and Veronika Loubry, a former French TV personality and the source of Thylane's great cheekbones.

Perhaps we've seen this all before (think Brooke Shields in "Pretty Baby") but the outcry over Thylane's Vogue photo shoot -- with comments of outrage sounding on the Internet -- has refreshed the debate.

In Britain, which recently implemented a government initiative to restrict the sexualization of children in the media, a spokesman for the Mothers' Union reacted to the Vogue shoot, telling the Daily Mail, "Photo shoots requiring her, a 10-year-old-girl, to dress in full make-up, teetering heels and a dress with a cleavage cut to the waist across her pre-pubescent body deny Blondeau the right to be the child she is."

There's something more than ironic about all this, coming as it does just after an international crackdown on child pornography led by the U.S. Justice and Homeland Security departments.

It's unlikely that new Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt would think this is porn, but it is very likely she and guest editor fashion designer Tom Ford wanted to be provocative ... and succeeded.

What do you think? Should children be featured in sexy high fashion shoots?

Megan Fox 'Is Hilarious' In 'Knocked Up' Spin-Off, Says Leslie Mann


We don't know too much about Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spin-off movie project, other than the fact that it centers around lovable/slightly dysfunctional couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), a few years after the events that occur in the Katherine Heigl, Seth Rogen pregnancy comedy. Also, if we know one thing about Apatow comedies, it is more than likely that a slew of famous faces will appear in the film, be it in a supporting or cameo role.

Apatow has been cagey about revealing any more casting or cameo details, but one interesting addition that was actually announced back in March is Megan Fox, and although we don't yet know who she plays in the film, star Leslie Mann assured us that she is a welcome addition to the cast.

"Megan Fox is so funny," she told us Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of "The Change-Up." "She's hilarious. You wouldn't, I don't know if other people [expect it], but I think she's really funny, you'll be pleasantly surprised."

 

So who does she play in the film?

"I can't say that part," she said with a smile, backing up her husband's comments earlier this year regarding spoilers.

"The rest is a secret because it doesn't come out until 2012 and if you already knew what it was about for a year and a half, you wouldn't even want to see it," he told us. "There will be people who are really interesting in the movie," he teased. "And some familiar people who are in the movie."

Are you excited to see Megan Fox's comedic chops?

Hacker Found A Way To Blow Up Your Pretentious iCrap Remotely

Las Vegas (CNN) -- Forget computer viruses and worms. What's maybe the worst thing a hacker could do to your laptop? Access it remotely and shut it down -- or maybe even blow it up.

Which is why famous Apple hacker Charlie Miller wanted to do just that.

"I don't want to wake up one day and have my computer blow up," said Miller, who is an avid user of Apple products. "I want to be the one looking at that -- not the bad guys."

How would a person blow up a laptop without even coming near it? By tampering with the software that runs its battery, said Miller, who demonstrated a way to hack into an Apple laptop battery and shut it down, but fell short of actually making it explode.

Apple did not respond to a CNN request for comment.

Miller explained his hack in a presentation at the Black Hat security conference Thursday in Las Vegas. After the talk, he sat down with CNN to talk about Apple security, hacker ethics and why long passwords can be annoying.

The following is an edited transcript:

Big Sean Arrested, Charged In Sexual Assault





Big Sean was arrested Thursday night after New York State Park Police received a complaint that a female had been sexually assaulted during a concert where the G.O.O.D. Music rapper performed on the same bill as Wiz Khalifa.

The rapper, born Sean Anderson, was arrested along with Willie Hansbro at approximately 9:50 p.m. ET after the woman issued the complaint. The Finally Famous rapper, who is currently on Khalifa's Rolling Papers Tour, performed Thursday night at Artpark in Lewiston, New York. Big Sean and Hansbro were eventually released on $500 bail each.

The two men, both hailing from Detroit, have been charged with forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree and sex abuse in the third degree and will have to appear in court. "Both men were charged with misdemeanors and they both vehemently deny the allegations," Sean's lawyer, Scott E. Lemon, said in a press release issued to MTV News. "I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated."

Big Sean has been riding high since his debut album, Finally Famous, hit #3 on the Billboard albums chart this past June. The LP's lead single, "My Last," hit #1 on the Billboard rap chart, and the 23-year old MC earned his first Video Music Awards nomination in the Best New Artist category.
