Hollywood, Stop It!

It’s finally time to re-open the diary: Bridget Jones is returning to the big screen.

EW has confirmed exclusively that Working Title Films, the production company responsible for the first movie released in 2001 and the second one dubbed The Edge of Reason in 2004, is moving ahead with a third installment. Based at Universal, Working Title has been mulling a sequel since 2009.

16 Yr Old Goddess Courtney Stodden Reunited with Pink Dog

Teen bride Courtney Stodden has been reunited with her favorite pet “pink dog,” and has the first photo of the happy couple.

Courtney and her Chinese crested dog Bazaar have been separated since she moved to Los Angeles to live with her 51-year-old husband Doug Hutchison, and when she finally got him back this weekend she was overjoyed.

“I’m so glad my pink dog is back with me,” Courtney exclusively told

The doggie’s pink hair is styled by Courtney’s mother Krista who said she dyes Bazaar’s hair pink once every two weeks and uses products that are safe for animals.

The little pup is adjusting to life in LA, where Doug already had two dogs.

“There have been a few accidents in the house, but they’re getting used to each other,” Krista said.

Kylie Minogue planning "anti-tour" for superfans

Pop star Kylie Minogue is currently working on an "anti-tour" idea where she'll only perform rare tracks in a non-flashy venues.

After touring the world with her massive Aphrodite Live show, the 43-year-old Minogue is now keen to play a handful of concerts for her most devoted fans, the Daily Express reported.

"I really like the idea of an anti-tour. The opposite of this (Aphrodite Live). I don't think I can get bigger than this production."

"It would be really great to do tiny, intimate shows; no dancing, no lights, there's nothing flash about it. (I'd be) performing songs that would never ever, ever have a hope in hell of being in a show like this."

"(It would be) only fan-known B-sides or songs that I've just done once," Minogue said.

New '50/50' Trailer Shaves Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Showcases Anna Kendrick

I’ve been told by those who have seen it that 50/50 should be my most anticipated movie for what’s left of this year. I can’t do that in a world where The Muppets exists, but I’m pretty excited to see what Jonathan Levine is up to. He was the writer/director of a Sundance movie I loved called The Wackness and he’s directing Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen in 50/50 as well.

That said if like me you haven’t seen the movie yet, maybe that first teaser trailer didn’t do much for you. Don’t worry, this one will. Here’s the new, pretty great, trailer for 50/50… which I still wish they’d left titled as I’m With Cancer.

Watch it below or in HD on Yahoo.

I’m convinced Levitt’s destined for an Oscar at some point in his career and the Academy does like movies about cancer. But even if this doesn’t win any awards, there’s definitely something worthwhile going on here.

Expect 50/50 in theaters on September 30th of this year.


Rodney Ruxin Interviews Fat Mac

It's hard to know what to say when someone suddenly gains 50 pounds, especially when that someone isn't a pregnant woman. Rob McElhenney, star of FX's "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," is thriving on the awkwardness he created by increasing his body mass by nearly a third – just because he thought it would be funny.

Fortunately, Nick Kroll of FX's "The League" has no filter. We were on hand recently as Kroll talked to McElhenney about his weight gain – and left no question unturned.

China Questions Whether London is Fit to Host Olympics After Riots


State-run newspapers in China have questioned whether the ongoing riots in London will make the city unfit to host the Olympics next summer.

"The three consecutive days of rioting has spread to east London area where the main sports stadium of London Olympic is located," the Xinhau news agency reported Tuesday. "After the riots, the image of London has been severely damaged, leaving the people skeptical and worried about the public security situation during the London Olympics."

Similar comments in the Communist-backed People's Daily provide a not-so-subtle reminder that China pulled off a massively successful Olympics in Beijing three summers ago. The insinuation is that the lack of dissent in China made the 2008 Games great and those freedoms could derail London 2012.

China did a fine job keeping politics out of its Olympics. For all the worries about the pre-Games crackdowns, censorship and government interference, those things were forgotten once the athletes arrived in town and sports took over the conversation. If only the country to continue the selective restraint and keep its opinion about the cause of the riots to itself.

Barefoot Bandit Signs $1.3 Mil Movie Deal With 20th Century Fox

Barefoot Bandit Colton Harris-Moore has signed a movie deal with 20th Century Fox worth up to $1.3 million, his lawyers tells his local Everett, Wash. Daily Herald newspaper.

He will put the money toward the $1.4 million he owes as restitution to victims of his two-year crime spree.

"I did things that were not only a violation of law, but also of trust," Harris-Moore said a written statement released by his attorneys. "I can't undo what I did. I can only try to make things better."

He said he wanted the statement to be read by the people of Camano Island and the San Juan Islands, "where I was born and raised."

He said he would only sign if his victims would be repaid.

"I am humbled to know I can now help the people I hurt, at least for the financial damage I caused them," Harris-Moore wrote. "I have absolutely zero interest in profiting from any of this and I won't make a dime off it. It all goes to restitution. That's what I insisted on from the beginning and the contract I signed guarantees it."

His Seattle-based entertainment lawyer Lance Rosen says, "It's very unusual for this kind of money to paid for anyone's life story rights,"

It covers movie and ancillary rights.

His defense attorney John Henry Browne says Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black is penning the script, along with Harris-Moore.

"Nobody knows the nitty-gritty of Colton's story," Browne said.

The Barefoot Bandit was finally caught in February 2007 and sentenced to three years in juvenile detention after a wild crime spree that ended when he crashed an airplane he taught himself to fly in Washington.

'Madagascar' Spin-Off to Be Helmed by 'Bee Movie' Co-Director

Simon Smith, who co-directed DreamWorks Animations’ Bee Movie, had been tapped to direct the animation house’s untitled Madagascar spin-off starring the penguins.

Also coming on board is Lara Breay (Megamind), who will produce.

DWA put the movie project into fast-track development in March, hiring Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, the writers behind DWA's Will Ferrell-voiced Megamind, to pen the script  focusing on  the paramilitary parables of plucky penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico.

The quartet are the secondary but scene-stealing characters of the Madagascar movies. 

The project is still a ways a way from casting anyone.

Smith is a DWA animator who has slowly but surely risen through the ranks. He was head of layout for the company’s Antz and Shrek, and a layout consultant on Shrek 2 before directing the Shrek 4-D animated attraction which is part of the Universal Studios theme park. He also directed two video shorts that were DVD extras on DWA releases: the Shrek-themed short Far Far Away Idol and Megamind: The Button of Doom.

The Jerry Seinfeld-centric Bee Movie, released in 2007, was co-directed with Steve Hickner.

Cheryl in 'advanced talks' to appear in "What to Expect When You're Expecting"

She suffered the indignity of seeing her dreams of American stardom on the U.S. edition of the X Factor dashed after just four days work.

However, now the Daily Mail has learned that Cheryl Cole is to take her revenge on former friend Simon Cowell - by appearing in a Hollywood film.

The star - who was surprisingly axed from the new Cowell series at the end of May - is to make her film debut in a new big-budget movie.

Mrs Cole, 28, will appear alongside Hollywood superstars Cameron Diaz, 38, and Jennifer Lopez, 42, in forthcoming film What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

The film, which is an adaptation of the successful pregnancy guide, is being made by Lionsgate and is due for release next May.

It began shooting in mid-May. And Mrs Cole – who is in ‘advanced talks’ to appear – will shoot her scenes in the U.S. later this month.

Celebrity Big Brother gears up for another messy season

This has got to be the all-time greatest cast ever assembled—and that's  without Charlie Sheen and his truth torpedoes.Shunned by Sheen, the U.K.'s Celebrity Big Brother has now stocked its made-for-TV sociological experminent with American Pie train wreck Tara Reid, Pamela Anderson and Bobby Brown per The Sun. So how are we handicapping it? Pam, 44, has the upper hand on Tara, 35, having logged some Big Brother time already Anderson appeared on Australian Big Brother, if only for three days. And her Dancing With the Stars experience is likely to come in handy. And if she can't take it, Anderson reportedly has a contract that states she can leave the Big Bruv (as the Brits call it) house after just five days. The show premieres Aug. 18, so she could make it home well before Labor Day. Reid, meanwhile, has taking a break from her wardrobe-malfunctioning party time to shoot American Reunion with her old American Pie gang. And then there's Bobby. We all know what Bobby can get up to. He's starred in his own reality show, along with Celebrity Fit Club, battled a drug addiction and has landed behind bars. He's guaranteed to spread some around the house. The rest of the Big Bruv cast includes Big Fat Gypsy Weddings star Paddy Doherty, British trainwreck Kerry Katona and Irish twins Jedward, who reportedly signed a nearly $2 million deal for the gig. Also joining the shenanigans, the House of Common's speaker's wife, Sally Bercow. Though we're guessing there's not going to be anything common about this house. Source

Andy Serkis: why won't Oscars go ape over motion-capture acting?

Andy Serkis has reiterated his desire for actors who work in motion-capture suits to be given the same respect as other thespians following his turn as ape Caesar in hit movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Serkis told the Daily Telegraph he was frustrated that his performances as the creature Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films and forthcoming prequel The Hobbit, as well as his latest turn, stood little chance of attracting the attention of Oscars voters.

"I am a bit evangelical, I know, but performance-capture is still misunderstood," he said. "Ten years down the line, people say, 'Oh, so you did the voice of Gollum?' Or people go, 'You did the movements for [King]Kong?' It's frustrating, because I play Gollum and I play Kong. It is acting."

Patrick Wilson Joins the Cast of Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS

Filming is well underway on Ridley Scott’s quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus but great actors keep joining the cast.  We knew the cast already included Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, and
Guy Pearce and now it looks like Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) is also in the mysterious sci-fi flick.  In an interview with Wilson for his upcoming TV show A Gifted Man, the mentioned the following:

Wilson will need to leverage everything he’s learned from Shorecrest [Wilson's hometown] to a new role in the highly anticipated Alien prequel Prometheus (directed by original Alien auteur Ridley Scott) for his latest challenge.

We don’t know anything about his role but we don’t really know much of anything about the project other than it has the “DNA” of the Alien franchise.  Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8, 2012.  Wilson will next be seen in theaters in Jason Reitman’s Young Adult.  If you need your Wilson fix faster than that, A Gifted Man premieres on CBS on September 23rd.

ONTD's Baby Daddy Thinking About Taking a Career Break

Australian actor Sam Worthington is planning to take a career break so he can "enjoy the fruits" of his hard work.

The 35 year old has seen his profile skyrocket since landing roles in Terminator Salvation and James Cameron's hit Avatar, which went on to become the most successful film of all time.

But Worthington admits he has had no time to relax since shooting to fame.

He tells, "I haven't taken a break in four years. It's been a nomadic existence. It took loads of hard work to reach this point in my career. It wasn't as if I woke up one day and was doing movies. It is time to enjoy the fruits of my labour."

Worthington won't be slowing down any time soon - he is due to begin filming surf movie Drift in Western Australia later this month (Aug11).

The 30 Harshest Filmmaker-on-Filmmaker Insults In History

1. Francois Truffaut on Michelangelo Antonioni:
“Antonioni is the only important director I have nothing good to say about. He bores me; he’s so solemn and humorless.”

2. Ingmar Bergman on Michelangelo Antonioni:
“Fellini, Kurosawa, and Bunuel move in the same field as Tarkovsky. Antonioni was on his way, but expired, suffocated by his own tediousness.”

3. Ingmar Berman on Orson Welles:
“For me he’s just a hoax. It’s empty. It’s not interesting. It’s dead. Citizen Kane, which I have a copy of — is all the critics’ darling, always at the top of every poll taken, but I think it’s a total bore. Above all, the performances are worthless. The amount of respect that movie’s got is absolutely unbelievable.”

4. Ingmar Bergman on Jean-Luc Godard:
“I’ve never gotten anything out of his movies. They have felt constructed, faux intellectual, and completely dead. Cinematographically uninteresting and infinitely boring. Godard is a fucking bore. He’s made his films for the critics. One of the movies, Masculin, Féminin, was shot here in Sweden. It was mind-numbingly boring.”

5. Orson Welles on Jean-Luc Godard:
“His gifts as a director are enormous. I just can’t take him very seriously as a thinker — and that’s where we seem to differ, because he does. His message is what he cares about these days, and, like most movie messages, it could be written on the head of a pin.”

Studio Cancels Eminem 'Boxing' Movie

Hopefully, the 39 year old will lay off the M&Ms until he hears whether another studio is willing to pick it up. Isn't Em a little long in the tooth to be playing a boxer anyway?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

DreamWorks has thrown in the towel on Southpaw, the boxing drama that has Eminem returning to the screen for the first time since 2002's 8 Mile, and Antoine Fuqua directing a script by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. The plan was to start in January. DreamWorks' Stacey Snider, who worked closely with Eminem and his team on 8 Mile while she ran Universal, basically gave the project back to the filmmakers to set up elsewhere and that's what they are trying to do. Maybe DreamWorks was concerned the market is crowded with brawler films after The Fighter and the upcoming Gavin O'Connor-directed mixed martial arts drama Warrior, or maybe the studio's cautious after its big bet on Cowboys & Aliens didn't pay off. (I'm sure it's coincidence that Snider once unplugged the Fuqua-directed version of American Gangster before putting the picture back together with Ridley Scott). But given the appetite of a crop of distributors looking for wide release product, I'd be surprised if this one, which is fully packaged, doesn't get off the canvas quickly.

Christina Ricci is "Pan Am" pretty

Christina Ricci is spotted on the set of her new ABC series Pan Am in New York yesterday (August 11). In the scene, Christina walks through a parade with signs (in English and German) welcoming President John F. Kennedy. Cool, the scene must be set during Kennedy’s visit to Berlin in 1963.

Also seen on set was Margot Robbie and Colin Donnell.

Back in May, Christina was spotted filming the pilot for the series – check out the pics here, here, and here.

Even though the show hasn’t even even aired yet, some critics are already calling the series – which follows a group of Pan Am flight attendants in the 1960s – sexist. Ricci said at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour last week that that’s unfair: “Sexism on Pan Am is a misconception, and unraveling that is actually what drew me to the role. As soon as anyone sees ten minutes of this show, the misconception [of sexism] will be gone. It’s really a great message for young girls and women.”

Possible Game of Thrones Casting News!

Is Oona Chaplin Joining the Cast?

Yesterday I came across an interview with Oona Chaplin who is currently on the BBC series "The Hour". During said interview, Ooona mentions, " I’ve got a part in Game of Thrones."

No confirmation has been found yet, however, while looking for confirmation I did see that Chaplin is a client of the Troika Agency who also manage Richard Madden (Robb Stark), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister, Carice van Houten (Melisandre) and Hannah Murray (Gilly). HBO definitely has a connection to that agency for whatever that's worth as proof.

Up til now Oona has had small roles and is most famous for her famous grandparents. Yes Oona Chaplin as in Charlie Chaplin and Oona Chaplin's granddaugheter and great grandaughter of Eugene O'Neill.

Until we have confirmation we have her video showreel.

With the casting of profile female roles like Ygritte, Jeyne Westerling and Meera Reed still unannounced and the casting of smaller roles like Alayaya and Quaithe unknown, Oona could fill a number of roles. Any opinions?


Yep, that is Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter. I've never seen her in anything. She could be a sand snake, but she doesn't look fierce enough. People are guessing anything other than Jeyne, but I'm guessing that she is Jeyne. If she is, I can't wait for shit to hit the fan...

According to a press release about the scent via scent site Fragrantica ‘Forbidden Pleasures’ is dedicated to the ‘independent woman’ and has ‘appealing intoxicating notes that seduce from the first stroke.’ ‘Independent woman,’ ‘first stroke,’ do I really have to spell this out? Plus the bottle looks a lot like a vibrator. The scent launches this September.

Carson Daly Invites Airman Angie Johnson to be on "The Voice"

File this story under “the Internet is awesome.” Just a few days ago, an anonymous soldier posted this video of a military band covering Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” starring a camo-clad singer with a serious set of pipes. Carson Daly saw the video and was able to track down the mystery woman on Twitter. Her name is Angie Johnson, and she’s a member of a U.S. Air Forces Central Expeditionary Band called “Sidewinder,” currently stationed in the Middle East. She and Daly exchanged a few Twitter messages, and it looks like she might be appearing on a certain singing competition/reality TV show in the near future. Check out a screencap of their convo after the jump…

“Jaw.On.Floor” pretty much sums it up. Congratulations to Angie and her band for their well-deserved success!

Aziz Ansari Otis Music Video Dancing Delivers Praise

When Aziz Ansari appeared dancing out of a Maybach in the “Otis” music video last night, fans were surprised, and a bit confused, by what was he doing in the cameo. And while critics are still debating whether Ye and Jay pulled off this peculiar video for “Watch the Throne”, fans are loving Ansari’s appearance, and especially his little dance move.

The 30 Best Portraits Of Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson is a man who deserves to have his portrait hanging on every wall in America. Wait, wait, I worry what you just heard was, “Ron Swanson's portrait should be on a lot of walls in America.” What I said was, “Ron Swanson's portrait should be on ALL walls in America.” Do you understand?

Jessi Slaughter: I'm Sorry

The last time we checked in with accidental viral video star Jessi Slaughter, things were bleak. But in a new video, she looks remarkably OK and says she's living in foster care, away from her abusive dad.

In a video posted by YouTube user "HiroKasyumi"—apparently 12-year-old Jessi's classmate—Jessi explains that she's living in foster care, is getting counseling is banned from computer access (good!). She also apologizes to the lead singer of the band Blood on the Dance Floor for making false statutory rape accusations against him—accusations which helped spark the whole Jessi Slaughter-4chan debacle of 2010.

This is the first good bit of Jessi Slaughter news in a story that has continued to dishearten with every new, depressing detail. In March, Jessi's dad, Gene Leonhardt—from whose mouth issued the famous "You Dun Goofed"—was arrested for punching Jessi in the mouth. And in July, the Smoking Gun reported that Florida police had visited Jessi's home after being informed that nude pictures of her were being circulated on "various websites, including 4chan." Clearly, she needed to get out of that house.

Here's hoping this is the last we ever hear from Jessi.

MTV at 30: The Top 10 Most Controversial Music Videos (NSFW)

As MTV celebrates its 30th birthday, it seems poised for a calm middle-aged life in a nice neighborhood, where it can safely raise Jersey Shore and Teen Mom into even more reliable moneymakers. But it wasn't always that way: Before it gave up on music, MTV swept through American households by breaking adventurous music videos from bands that would come to define an era. More interesting than those videos, though, are the ones that didn't get shown, or at least pissed everyone off afterward.

Narrowing the dozens if not hundreds of worthy competitors for this list down to 10 was, admittedly, difficult and somewhat arbitrary. Who's to say that raunchy sex is more controversial than disturbing violence? Further, a video that made the world lose its shit in 1989 probably wouldn't even raise an eyebrow today.

With all that in mind, hit the jump to see the 10 craziest, most controversial videos ever made. If we left out your depraved favorite, post it in the comments.

10. 2 Live Crew -- "Me So Horny" (1989)
Music, TV, and sex seem like a three-way that has existed forever, but the reality is that it took videos in the late '80s and early '90s like this one to really tie the knot. There are scores of others that played with the same themes -- George Michael's "I Want Your Sex" from 1987 and Madonna's "Justify My Love" from 1990, to name just a few.

We chose this one because, characteristic of 2 Live Crew, it doesn't mess around -- every aspect of this video is explicitly and unabashedly about sex and hooking up. In order to get its video on MTV, the group created an alternative version with slightly less skin. We have videos like "Me So Horny" to thank (or blame, depending on your perspective) for imitators like Eric Prydz's steamy "Call on Me" workout-themed video.

As a side note, a judge declared the album As Nasty as They Wanna Be to be obscene in the wake of this song's success, which predictably gave a boost to sales. For awhile, clerks caught selling the album were arrested. The courts later determined it not to be obscene.

So, agree, disagree? Any video's that got left out? I'm pretty surprised with the list and having an artist up there twice but not surprised with the choice.

Introducing the New Andrea Zuckerman...26 Year Old Vanessa Lengies Cast as a FRESHMAN on Glee

Vanessa Lengies agreed to enroll in McKinley High as a new student. The 26-year-old actress will play one of the new freshmen the producers promised us back in June, adding some fresh blood to the cast. Lengies' character, Sugar, is described as an ungodly combination of Molly Shannon and a New Jersey housewife, who happens to be a terrible singer. I suppose it strains credulity that every person at the high school is an amazing singer, but the Glee club seems to have enough auto tune at its disposal that it could make Gilbert Godfried sound good. They certainly use it enough on Finn.

Lengies currently appears on TNT hospital show Hawthorne, and previously appeared in the similarly musical drama American Dreams. Season 3 of Glee starts airing this September, on Fox.

For the love of all that is holy, I hope that the casting of an intentionally bad singer doesn't lead to more covers of Kee-dollar-sign-hah songs. The emotional strain of reliving that purple vomit incident would be too much to bear.


I'm not hating, she mad cute and was funny in Waiting but 26 playing 14??? Really? Bit of a stretch, even for Glee.

Michael Ian Black on Encouraging His Twitter Hecklers and Visiting Strip Clubs with Meghan McCain

“Looking back on my career, I made a realization,” Michael Ian Black once tweeted. “I am TV AIDS.” That’s not false modesty. Despite being one of the most consistently smart and funny comics working today, his presence in a television cast almost guarantees a speedy cancelation. His career has included a string of critically lauded TV shows that never had a chance, from The State to Viva Variety to Stella. His latest Comedy Central series, Michael & Michael Have Issues, survived a little more than a month before getting the boot. His biggest successes have come in unexpected places, like being the funniest talking head on those VH1 I Love The . . . nostalgia shows, and having an immensely popular Twitter feed, which was ranked the fifth “best” celebrity Twitter (among the 140 picked) by Time magazine earlier this year and (as of this writing) boasts more than 1,650,000 followers. It could be argued that Black is creating an unconventional comedy career in a unconventional media age, and that might be sort of true, if VH1 hadn’t run out of decades to be nostalgic about and being funny on Twitter was in any way a paying gig.

Summer 2011 Winners And Losers

The official end of summer may be weeks away, but let's face it, Hollywood gave up on the season last weekend with the release of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. James Franco's surprisingly successful monkey movie sent the summer out with a screech and at an internet meme (Why cookie Rocket?) and that means it's time to take a look back at what happened during this year's heat wave.

We're not here to dissect which movie was the biggest box office winner of the summer (with $348 million earned and counting it was definitely Harry Potter) or which movie the critics loved most (oddly enough, also Harry Potter), we have loftier ambitions. The biggest blockbuster movie going season of the year often has implications beyond the numbers, so here we are to break down who came out of the summer smelling like a rose, and who came out Ryan Reynolds. These are the biggest winners and losers of Summer 2011, as we see them.

Winner: R-rated Comedy
It wasn't just The Hangover Part II that managed to piggyback on The Hangover's success this summer. A lot of very famous people were saying some very dirty, very funny things on camera this year, reviving the R-rated comedy in a way that even Judd Apatow might not have been able to predict. Sure, the dreadful The Hangover Part II is the most successful of these, but Bridesmaids was a massive hit at $166 million domestic, and Horrible Bosses-- which used the R-rating to give Charlie Day a chance to be even more funny and ridiculous than he can on TV's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia-- isn't far behind with $106 million.

Drake Dating Serena Williams?

According to, the pair have been getting extra cozy over the past few weeks with the most recent rendezvous being last week in South Florida.

Last week, after Drake tweeted to Serena ‘I Can’t Wait To Put It On You And Make You Sweat… during our match this weekend”, the two had some one on one time on the Tennis Court. Days later, Drake was spotted cheering her on as she competed for the 2011 Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto.

New Selena Quintanilla Album on the Way!

Selena fans, rejoice! Brand new music is coming your way, according to Abraham Quintanilla, Selena's father:

"I own 5 Selena tape masters from pre-EMI times. There's a total of 50 songs. We picked 10 of those songs and we're currently working on refreshing the music. We want to rejuvenate their sound, bring them up-to-date."

The remaining 40 songs will also be released eventually, but for the time being you can expect the new CD to come out early next year.

There are always ethical and artistic issues when an artist's unreleased work is published post-mortem. The music was recorded when Selena was in her mid-teens. It possibly sounds very different from the more mature sound we got to know her by, and she obviously has no artistic input on how these masters are put together. Pick any artist who went before their time (Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Miles Davis, Kurt Cobain, Tupac Shakur) and then had posthumous releases. There's always the question: Why weren't these tracks published during their careers, were they not happy with them? On the other hand, Selena's tracks could also offer insight into her development as an artist, while simply giving her fans more to savor.

Blind Items

Brought to you by a swimming pug

1. This A list movie actor. Wait, let me stop right there. I think I should make it cusp of A list. He has been the lead in lots of movies but they don’t always do well and he is sometimes overshadowed by another. That sounds mysterious huh? Anyway, after this Real Housewife got drunk and started hitting on our actor, he took her home with him for the night. What he does not know though is this was like guy number three in a three night spree for the Real Housewife.
My Guess: Ryan Reynolds and idk

2. There’s something about this top Hollywood star who secretly split from his D-list actress wife – and she’s about to file for divorce! They still pretend to be a happy couple and even appear in public with their children, but the truth is he has a weak spot for prostitutes!
National Enquirer
My Guess: Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor

3. This young, hot celebrity couple who met on the set of their film have been dating since their film came out, but a source tells us that they finally slept together for the first time, only last month. Their relationship started out as a genuine friendship and they decided to take things slow in part, because they thought it would help their onscreen chemistry.
My Guess: Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis

Happy Friday, ONTD!!! What are you all doing tonight? I'm going to a birthday party at a penthouse across from the Met. It's going to be a disastrously good time.

Former Melrose Place Co-Stars Heather Locklear & Jack Wagner To Wed

Heather Locklear is set to tie the knot with a fellow soap opera veteran and "Melrose Place" co-star, Jack Wagner, US Weekly reported Friday. "Heather and Jack are engaged," Locklear's representative told Us Weekly.

Locklear, who was launched to stardom on "Dynasty," was previously married to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. Locklear and Sambora have a 13-year-old daughter, Ava Elizabeth.

Wagner, 51, appears on the CBS soap "The Bold and the Beautiful." He previously starred on "General Hospital" and co-starred with Locklear on "Melrose Place," the 1990s drama. The two soap opera veterans began their romance in 2007, Us Weekly said.

I wonder if this will be their wedding song:


Drew Barrymore Featured in Neiman Marcus's Art of Fashion

Neiman Marcus’ The Art of Fashion campaign features Drew Barrymore as the model. Shot by famed photographer, Norman Jean Roy, the photo shoot features the iconic Barrymore in high-concept imagery evoking the style of mid-century Hollywood studio portraiture.

The first Neiman Marcus Art of Fashion campaign appeared in 1994. At the time it was a revolutionary step for a retailer as the campaign was designed to feature cutting edge fashion, provocative photography and unique styling.

Today the Art of Fashion campaign adds a new chapter with its partnership with Drew Barrymore. Ms. Barrymore is featured wearing a variety of top designers from Neiman Marcus.

“The team at Neiman Marcus wanted to evolve the Art of Fashion by pairing up with a celebrated face and photographer. We felt that Drew Barrymore possessed not only the pedigree and glamour of old Hollywood, but also the confidence and spirit of the modern-day woman – much like Neiman Marcus itself. The project was a collaborative effort between Norman Jean Roy and Ms. Barrymore, and beautifully captures the essence of Neiman Marcus’ edits of the Fall collections,” said Eddie Nunns, Vice President of Neiman Marcus Brand Creative.

The Art of Fashion shoot will debut in The Book by Neiman Marcus and will appear in the September issues of Vanity Fair, Vogue and W. Additionally, Vanity Fair will feature a digital campaign of The Art of Fashion designed specifically for ipads.

Chris Martin mentioning JT (and Gaga + Beyonce) in Billboard Magazine

Q: This is an a la cart world now in terms of music consumpton. Yet sequencing the album seems to be very important to this band [Coldplay], why is that?

Because there are still people who care about it. And we just can't compete in a singles world, we're not good enough at singles to do that. So we have to play to our strength. We have some good singles, sure, but we can't compete with Gaga or Beyonce or Justin [Timberlake], if he would only fucking make a record. It's good news for all of us that he isn't, because it gives everyone else a chance, but it's a great loss to music that he doesn't do it.

Justin Timberlake will bring his annual all-star benefit concert back to Las Vegas

MC HAMMER Defeats Juggalos with MESMERIZING Dance Moves

MC Hammer did TWO incredible things at the Gathering of Juggalos festival in Illinois last night -- first, he wasn't killed ... and second, HE DID THE HAMMER DANCE!!!!!!!!

Hammer gyrated the hell out of himself while performing "U Can't Touch This" -- and it was so enchanting ... the Juggalos actually restrained themselves from hurling objects at his face.

Impressive, considering the Juggalos bloodied up last year's performers -- Method Man and Tila Tequila -- by pelting them with beer cans with Nolan Ryan-esque accuracy.

He told you, homeboy ... you can't touch this.
