Gloria Steinem wants you to boycott NBC's "Playboy Club"



The feminist icon has a bone to pick about a new show's "prostitution and dominance".

Gloria Steinem just did NBC 's new '60s-era series "The Playboy Club" a huge favor. She said you shouldn't see it. And you can't buy publicity like that! In a new interview with Reuters, the 77-year-old feminist icon said flatly, "I hope people boycott it. It's just not telling the truth about the era."

Tropes vs. Women: #5 The Mystical Pregnancy

This is the fourth of a six part series created for Bitch Magazine.
Tropes vs. Women explores the reoccurring stories, themes and representations of women in Hollywood films and TV shows.

The Mystical Pregnancy is a trope writers use to create drama and terror by invading, violating and exploiting women’s reproductive capabilities. Often these female characters have their ovaries harvested by aliens or serve as human incubators for demon spawn. Sometimes they are carrying the Messiah and other times Satan himself.

Could Porn Help Prevent Rape?

A new report released by Scientific American suggests that pornography could deter sexual violence. 

The question of whether porn is dangerous or harmless is one that society has had trouble answering for some time. A recent article in Newsweek suggests that men who buy sex, including pornography, are more likely to engage in violent sexual behavior. But the Scientific American says the opposite: porn could actually lower the amount of sexual violence.

According to the report, "some experts believe the consumption of pornography may actually reduce the desire to rape by offering a safe, private outlet for deviant sexual desires."

 Bar Refaeli: No Need To Super Skinny



Bar Refaeli doesn't feel the need to be "super skinny". She said:

"I don't feel the need to be super skinny, but being in shape is important. But even if I wasn't in this industry I would still want to look after myself and be healthy and keep my body in good condition."

She also said:

"I always want to look my best on a shoot, or for a fashion show, so I do an extra couple of sit-ups the night before and I drink hot water with lemon to get my metabolism kick-started in the morning and to cleanse my system, but I don't do anything crazy.

"There's nothing worse than forcing yourself to spend hours in the gym when you don't enjoy it, so I do all sorts of things to work out because I get bored easily."

Monstrumologist Series Cut :(

For those ONTDers that read, you may have missed out on Rick Yancey's Printz-award winning YA horror MONSTRUMOLOGIST series.

It's fantastic.



The third book in the series comes out mid-September. Sadly, though the story is not finished, the series has been guillotined due to not reaching Lauren Conrad or Hilary Duff-level sales. Sad, sad indeed. As Rick Yancey said on his facebook page: "Though the good folks at Simon & Schuster are quite proud, as I am, of the books’ critical success, sales simply have not been what either of us had hoped for. In short, the series is dead unless by some miracle sales of the books take off."

The good news is, a blog is running a "drive" to ask S&S to reconsider canceling the series, and as a reward she's giving away an advanced copy of Isle of Blood (http://stephanieoakes.blogspot.com/2011/08/support-monstrumologist-giveaway.html). Furthermore, if enough people "like" Rick Yancey on Facebook, you're entered to win a free copy as well.

RIP to a great read :(

He also talked about his next role, as a surf photographer in Drift, which will film in Australia.

Long-ass article behind the cut.

ETA: The cast filmed a PSA for this year’s event, which is set to air on Aug. 24. Along with the public service announcement, the whole cast shot a music video featuring David Bowie’s song “Fashion,” covered by Lea. The video will go live on Vogue.com on Aug. 23 and was directed by Jake Nava and choreographed by Zach Woodlee. -Hollywood Life

My thoughts:
  • Harry Shum needs to wear more black, white and red.
  • Kevin looks like an astronaut. Granted, a sexy astronaut, but an astronaut.
  • Where is Amber? Where is Naya? Where are Dianna's eyebrows?
  • EDIT: This was taken on tour while they were in Manchester, England (which explains Chord and Dianna's shorter hair). Naya and Amber were both ill. I know Naya missed some shows, I think Amber performed.
  • Chord looks like Gary Busey in this picture.

Can Pippa Middleton be a style icon?



The other day I was in Debenham's and I saw a copy of Pippa Middleton's bridesmaid dress. Is she the new British fashion icon?

Sara, by email

Ahlfnk . . . laefiken . . . lekhvelk. Shorry Shara – I've had to down a couple of shotshhhh. Gimme a shecond . . . Whew! OK, all sobered up now – nothing that downing a quart of espresso won't cure. Except insomnia.

You need to give a gal some warning before you ask certain questions: "Do you ever think about the meaninglessness of life and how we're all specks of dust floating in space and will soon all combust into nothingness?" "Gosh, have you ever noticed how you sound just like your mother?" "Is Pippa Middleton the new British fashion icon?" Warning, Sara! Without it, you can drive a lady to drink.

So is the sister of someone who married into a family that's incredibly rich and gets supported by the taxpayers a fashion icon? A sister who is known for nothing other than being the object of the British press's intense thigh-rubbing on seeing the outline of her backside in her bridesmaid dress? Well, obviously, the rightful answer to this is one gigantic NO. Of course not! Real style icons are true originals – such as Camila Batmanghelidjh, say – not retro Sloanes who dress as if they've been raised in the pages of Tatler.

Unfortunately, the right answer is: yes, unbelievably, she is. And David Cameron wonders why people feel such a sense of social inequality in this country.

Hong Kong Phooey film: let sleeping dogs lie



Of course there's going to be a Hong Kong Phooey film. And of course it'll blend CGI with live-action comedy. And of course Eddie Murphy will provide the voice of Hong Kong Phooey. Of course all of that will happen. Hollywood loves plundering old cartoons for ideas and, now that Shrek has finished, Eddie Murphy needs some voiceover work to stop him making a Norbit sequel. This was always going to happen. There's no point fighting it.

But there's a problem. Even in its original form, Hong Kong Phooey was rubbish. The scripts were stale, the animation was jerky and every episode was basically identical. They only made 16 episodes for a reason. The sheen of irony and misplaced nostalgia might have buoyed its reputation in recent years, but the fact is that Hong Kong Phooey was never anything more than a footnote in the story of Hanna-Barbera.

David Lynch's "Crazy Clown Time" Album Out Nov 8th


We've been hearing about it for a long time, and now it's finally here: David Lynch's solo album of electronic pop. Here's the first thing you need to know about this album: It's called Crazy Clown Time. And here's the second thing: It features guest vocals from Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O on a song called "Pinky's Dream". Those are two very good reasons to get excited.

Crazy Clown Time arrives November 8 from Sunday Best Recordings. (In the U.S., it will be co-released by PIAS America.) Lynch wrote, produced, and performed the entire thing with help from engineer Dean Hurley, who also plays guitar and drums on several songs.

Eva Longoria filming new reality show



Eva Longoria is spotted filming a segment for the new reality show H8ter outside her restaurant Beso in West Hollywood on Saturday (August 13). In the scene, which featured Mario Lopez as well, Eva is seen shooting multiple takes of her exiting an SUV and walking into Beso.

H8er is a new show, hosted by Lopez, in which celebrities confront fans that are “hating” on them. In addition to Eva, look for celebs on the show like Snooki, Kim Kardashian, Barry Bonds, Leah Remini, and Kat Von D. Lopez said that the show is great because it provides some accountability for fans:

“The Internet provides a forum for cowards. They’re in their home and probably chilling out in their underwear and saying all these vicious things with no accountability.”

Listen to Muppets: The Green Album in its entirety

 

Growing up in the '70s and '80s, I made a promise to myself to never forget what it felt like to be a kid. In a confusing world run by adults, the wonder and innocence of youth seemed like salvation. Of course, as the years ticked by, whatever magic or joy I found in childhood things eventually faded and gave way to the shadow of inevitable middle age.

Fortunately, we have the occasional keepsake to remind us of everything we forgot. Muppets: The Green Album, a new collection of Muppet songs covered lovingly by Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket and other artists, provides one of those reminders. Hearing it for the first time ignited a heady rush of blithesome memories and emotions I'd not recalled or felt in years.

Interview With The Inferior Red Ranger Steve Cardenas


Steve Cardenas, a former “Power Ranger” and 5th degree black belt in American Tae Kwon Do & brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) started training martial arts in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas at the young age of 12. It wouldn’t take long for him to realize that he wanted to teach martial arts and follow a career path “karate biz”. At age sixteen, Cardenas received a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, prompting him to teach multiple after-school programs to kids and teens.

At twenty, Cardenas moved to Los Angeles, where his journey would lead him to an unlikely audition that would land him the the role of “Rocky the Red Power Ranger” on the TV series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.’ That show would prove to be an instant overnight success and cement itself in the annals of pop culture history! Since his time on that legendary show, Cardenas has gone on to live out his dream of becoming a martial arts instructor. He successfully ran martial arts studios in California and Texas and in 2009 started a kids-specific program at Hollywood BJJ studio in West Hollywood founded by actor and BJJ black belt, Sean Patrick Flanery. With twenty five years of martial arts experience, Cardenas has also received many outstanding honors, including: two-time Silver Medalist at Copa Pacifica in 2009 & 2011, Gold Medal winner of the 2009 American National Championship, Bronze Medal winner in the 2010 American National Championship, Gold Medal in the 2010 Jiu-Jitsu Pro Gear Open, and Silver Medal in the 2010 No-Gi World Championships.

Now, Steve not only focuses on working with kids in BJJ, but people of all ages and believes that the conditioning, discipline and respect that people learn from martial arts can be carried over into all aspects of their lives. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Steve Cardenas to discuss his roots in martial arts, his experiences as part of the ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ and his latest endeavor, Force/Balance Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Yoga in Burbank, CA!

ONTD VICTORY! KATE GOSSELIN IS DONE

Kate Gosselin’s ‘Kate Plus 8’ canceled



“Kate Plus 8” has officially run its course.


The reality show that began as “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” then morphed into “Kate Plus 8” after the messy divorce of Kate and Jon Gosselin, has been cancelled. TLC issued a statement this afternoon confirming that the show will end at the conclusion of its current season.

“By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future,” the statement read.

This announcement comes a week after Kate Gosselin denied the show was getting the axe during an interview on “Today.”

“Nobody has told me [about being cancelled],” Gosselin said to “Today’s” Ann Curry. “We’re happy to continue on and will do so as long as people are watching.”

The problem is that people weren’t watching. Ratings for the show had dipped to around or below 1 million viewers in recent weeks, which apparently wasn’t enough to keep TLC in the Kate Gosselin game.

What’s next for Kate Gosselin then? She can always shop a reality show idea to other networks, as our Sarah Hughes suggested she might.

Or she could just take a break and stay out of the spotlight for a while. Just an idea.

Parks and Recreation Scoop: Meet Ron's Mother!

Is Pawnee big enough for three Tammy Swansons?!

We’re about to find out because Parks and Recreation has cast longtime Saturday Night Live writer/guest star Paula Pell to play the original Tammy in Ron’s life — his mother.

Pell, who also serves as a writer and occasional guest on 30 Rock, will debut as Ron’s salt-of-the-earth creator in an early Season 4 episode. Considering Pell is roughly the same age as TV son Nick Offerman, it’s fair to say Parks and Rec‘s makeup gurus will be adding a few wrinkles to her face. (A show rep ruled out the character turning up in a flashback.)

Tammy Zero’s arrival coincides with the introduction of Patricia Clarkson as Ron’s first ex-wife, Tammy 1, and the return of Megan Mullally as Tammy 2.

"Gravity" News - Alfonso Cuarón Has Revolutionized Films with New Camera Technology

As if we didn't already have enough reasons to be excited for Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity," Guillermo del Toro is here to vouch that it's going to blow our minds.

It's a movie that's taken a very long time to get into production, and even had James Cameron skeptical of its scope. But I didn't put it on my list of movies that desperately needed to be put through production in 2011 for nothing, and with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in the lead roles it seems like it could be certifiably great. Del Toro seems to think that it's going to change sci-fi films as we know them.
 

"I'm amazed at Alfonso the past few movies because he's completely transformed himself," he said when MTV News spoke with him recently. "['Gravity' is] incredibly well-calculated. Very human, if you know the story."

Like Cameron with "Avatar," Cuarón has created new camera technology for "Gravity" so he can give it the look he pictures for the sci-fi epic. Though del Toro wouldn't share what exactly Cuarón has come up with, he said that it will likely get a lot of press soon and is very Kubrickian.

"[They're] absolutely pushing a new boundary in filmmaking, completely mindblowing. And the way they're making that movie will, I think, forever change certain types of productions," he said.
 

If that's not enough to get you excited, the news that Cuarón managed to out-Cameron James Cameron might. Turns out del Toro put Cuarón in touch with Cameron to try to get some insight for their camera technology, and Cameron said that what they wanted to do couldn't be done.
 

"Jim said, well you know, look, you're about five years into the future. When Jim said that it's too early to try anything that crazy, they did it," del Toro said.

Clooney will play “the role of team leader of a space station.” Along with Bulllock, they “are the sole survivors when the space station is decimated by the debris field from an exploded asteroid. Bullock will carry much of the action adventure, a mother who is hellbent on returning to her young child back on earth.” Warner Bros. has set the release date as November 21, 2012.

An ONTD Exclusive Behind the Scenes Look at the Watch the Throne NYC Pop-Up Shop and After Party!



I had the privilege of helping out with the opening day of Jay-Z and Kanye’s surprise pop-up shop here in New York City this past weekend. The shop was located at 201 Mulberry Street in the SoHo area of NYC at Open House Gallery. Though the set-up seemed bare to those who were among the first to arrive there was much more brewing below the surface of the store. As the day progressed word began to spread that Jay-Z may make a surprise appearance. Many assumed Kanye would show up as well, but with his prior commitment to the Way out West festival in Sweden those rumors were quickly dismissed.
When you entered the gallery space the completely tricked-out Maybach, complete with a “What Would Hova Do?” bumper sticker, that appeared in the newly released “Otis” video was the first thing to greet you. And let me tell you, that thing is even more insane looking in person than in the video. As you made your way down stairs you were able to get an advance copy of the deluxe version of Watch the Throne as projectors displayed all of the CD’s amazing artwork along the side walls and the “Otis” video was projected on the gallery’s biggest wall. But after 4 hours of hearing “Otis” on repeat we finally conceded that maybe we should mute the video and play the entire album on repeat instead, much to my relief because as great as that song is you can only listen to the same song on repeat while working before you start to lose your mind, ha!

Unaired Episode of Happy Endings (aka best show you're not watching) to air on Aug.24th



Freshman sitcom Happy Endings was responsible for two of the more surprising moments of upfronts week this past spring. For one, the show received a renewal when its chances weren't looking that great going in; not only that, but the show was given a pretty prime spot with its move to Cougar Town's former Wednesdays at 9:30 spot post-Modern Family.

To get you ready for the new season, ABC is airing the "lost" episode of Happy Endings on August 24th at 9:30. After the show started gaining buzz and pulling double duty each week, only 12 episodes of the original 13 had been aired, so it was unclear (until now) just what ABC was going to do with the mysterious 13th episode. In said 13th episode, Jane and Alex's sibling rivalry heats up over literacy (of course), while Dave dates a lacrosse coach with a quirk and Penny sets out to be the "cool boss" to her new assistant.

Happy Endings
will be debuting its second season on September 28th at 9:30. Will you be checking out the "new" episode of Happy Endings? Should ABC have added this episode to season 2 instead of airing it in summer? What do you hope the gang gets into in season 2?

KE$HA IS THE DEVIL




Ke$ha To Play The Devil On Alice Cooper's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" Album

Kesha always positioned herself as devilish and she takes that whole pop music’s bratty little sister thing to the next level with her appearance on shock rock god Alice Cooper‘s new album, ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare.’ Kesha and Coop have joined each other on stage multiple times in the past few years and Cooper told Ultimate Classic Rock that he thinks Kesha will make a directional shift to the left and lean more towards rock, as opposed to polished pop, on future recordings.

“You watch, she’s gonna end up being a rock singer, not a disco singer. She wants to be, you know, she wants to be Robert Plant, and she’s a big tall American girl and she could really do it,” Cooper predicted. All eyes will be on Kesha to see if this prognostication comes true.

Cooper also said, “Kesha’s an old friend of mine. When she was in Oslo, I got up and did a song with her. She actually plays the Devil in this thing.” It’s beyond cute that he calls her an “old” friend when she’s all of 24 years old and could be his granddaughter! And Kesha playing the Devil on the record? Oh yeah!

#Humblebrag Continues to Show Off Celebrity Humble-Braggarts.


Twitter may be inherently narcissistic, but some tweeters are just plain braggy. Enter #Humblebrag, a popular new hashtag and convenient way to call out stars—and friends—who feign humility but are really just gloating. From Lindsay Lohan to Johnny Weir, see some of the worst offenders.

Johnny Weir just can’t believe he’s been to three cities in a single day (you jetsetter, you!). Greta Van Susteren just accidentally pocket-dialed the Pentagon (don't you wish you had them on speed dial). Julia Allison is mortified that she is surrounded by nine (OMG! so popular!) producers for a video shoot. And your journalist friend can’t get over how awful his seats at Fashion Week are—perched, of course, in the second row.


It’s called the #Humblebrag: a feigned attempt at humility that’s really just an excuse to brag. It’s made obnoxiously easy by social networking, and it thrives in an age where narcissism is the norm.

Humble bragging has likely always been around—but it hasn't always had a name. For the emerging meme, we have Harris Wittels to thank. A standup comic and writer on NBC's Parks and Recreation, Wittels created the Humblebrag Twitter handle a few months back—and an internet phenom was born. Now with nearly 92,000 followers, he's become a stealth humble-bragging cop—shaming underhanded boasters through retweets and hashtags, day-in and day-out.

Jesse Csincsak Teams with ONTD'S Olympic Boyfriend Apolo Ohno

Jesse Csincsak from season 4 of The Bachelorette is teaming up with Olympic speed skater, Apolo Anton Ohno in promoting mouth guards by a company called AgilityGuard. As Bachelor fans know, Csincsak is a professional snowboarder and has to have the best equipment out there for his sport.

Both Jesse Csincsak and Apolo Anton Ohno are talented athletes who believe in endorsing a great product when they use it. Mouth guards by AgilityGuard are designed for athletes when they're on the field, slopes, or court. The Bachelorette winner and Apolo are associated with a product that successfully protects an athlete's smile in case a bad hit or fall occurs.

Pottermore: First impressions of the new interactive Harry Potter site


We all enjoyed the story of Harry Potter and his progressive battles against fosterage, puberty, and a noseless supervillain, but what readers—especially, but not limited to, younger ones—really loved about the series was the ability to immerse themselves in a world of everyday magic, of charm spells, enchanted clocks, and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans. How many kids at one point or another pulled a Veruca Salt, demanding of their parents, “But mummy and daddy, I want an invitation to Hogwarts, now!” Forget Santa Claus, for a whole generation of children the real heartbreaking revelation was that we’re all Muggles and that’s all we’ll ever be.

Reese Witherspoon: Ron Herman Shopping Trip



Reese Witherspoon grins at photographers as she steps out on Friday (August 12) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old actress picked up a few things at the Ron Herman boutique on her day out on the town.

Earlier in the month, Reese signed on to star in Wish List, a new romantic comedy from Disney.

The film tells the story of a little girl who makes ten wishes at a wishing well…and whose dreams finally come through some 25 years later.

Femi Kuti: 'My father the hero'

'I consider myself lucky to have survived,” says Femi Kuti of growing up in the household of his father, the late, great Fela Kuti. “I could have ended up on hard drugs or committed suicide. But I knew from the start I would have to work 10 times harder than anyone else.”

Bandleader, musical innovator, husband to 27 wives, scourge of successive Nigerian military regimes, given to performing in his underpants with a large joint never far from his fingers, Fela Kuti was already a cult figure at the time of his death from Aids in 1997. Since then his standing has risen inexorably, culminating in the smash-hit Broadway musical Fela – currently packing them in at Sadler’s Wells in London – which crams his tumultuous life and explosive Afrobeat music into three all-singing, all-dancing hours.

MJ's KIDS Going To the Tribute Concert DESPITE Jermaine's Wishes



Michael Jackson's children are slated to fly to Wales, to catch the upcoming MJ Tribute Concert in person ... despite the fact they're getting pushback from two of their famous uncles.

An MJ family rep told TMZ, "Paris, Blanket and Prince have been asked to attend the MJ Tribute in Wales and they have decided to go." (The concert's terms and conditions -- posted by Global Live Events LLP -- previously stated that Katherine Jackson had pledged to attend the tribute concert with "as many of Michael's children as are available.")

The rep added that the kids hope to contribute to the concert in some way, perhaps by giving a speech.

However, we're told, "Jermaine and Randy are fighting it."

As TMZ previously reported, the two brothers feel the timing of the tribute is "inappropriate" -- explaining, "We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death."

Randy Jackson similarly fought against Prince, Paris, and Blanket appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010. At the time, Katherine Jackson had signed a contract with ex-porn producer Howard Mann and his company "Vintage Pop." Under the deal -- which was not sanctioned by the MJ Estate -- Katherine agreed to release and promote several Michael Jackson related projects, in turn for 25% of the net profits with a minimum monthly guarantee of $10,000-a-month.

The contract also stated Katherine had the legal right to "forever bind" Michael's kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket, to make "television appearances, radio interviews, magazine interviews," etc. for the purpose of promoting Mann's products.
This deal prompted the children's sudden public appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show and Good Morning America in 2010 and 2011, respectively. (However, according to sources familiar with the MJ Estate ... Katherine does not have the legal power to contractually bind Michael's kids.)

Eva Marcille Talks About Hosting "Hair Battle Spectacular" Season 2

"Hair Battle Spectacular" Season 2 Debuts Monday, August 15 at 10 PM on OXYGEN


 

Eva Marcille may not have become the next supermodel after winning season three of America`s Next Top Model, but you have to give her credit. The girl, whose hair is now white blond, keeps on working, which is not something all reality contestant winners can say.
 

In her latest outing, Marcille, who played Tyra Hamilton on the The Young and the Restless, is the host of the second season of Oxygen`s Hair Battle Spectacular, which pits 11 of America`s hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design.

Tune in to the premiere tonight at 10 p.m. and watch as the contestants create outrageous coifs that resemble everything from Hollywood stars to hounds and handbags.

Collapse )

Collapse )

Eva Marcille: I have watched the show and pop culture has definitely taken on fantasy hair if you look at like Lady Gaga who came to an awards show in an egg with crazy hair and crazy fashion.  That`s what we play off of.

And we kind of shed a light on what`s going on in our pop culture outside of what`s just simple and mainstream. That was so intriguing to me because I see everything. Being blessed to be in this business, you see it all. But fantasy hair is something you don`t see on an everyday basis, but it`s something that you want to know about. So that`s why I just kept tuning in.
 

What has been your most memorable moment from the show.

Eva Marcille: One of my most memorable moments from the show has to be the episode where we had drag queens.  And what was so amazing is that every week we use female models to display the hair designs as well as the makeup and the outfits. But that particular week was the one week where we were allowed to use gentlemen. So, for me to have men on set was amazing, but they put on high heels. So it was an absolute riot the entire day and it was just amazing to shoot.


Since you yourself have been a reality show contestant and winner, do you feel like you were able to offer the contestants some advice in what it`s like to compete?

Eva Marcille: I was. Competition is hard. If you see a basketball player and he`s on the court and he`s shooting his free throws or his three-(pointer), it`s easy by yourself. But it`s hard when you have people guarding you and everyone else on the court. So that`s the same thing for competition.

These are amazing stylists, but when it comes to them having to compete in the amount of time allotted and you have 10 other people that are equally as amazing, it just makes for a crazy, crazy situation. And I know what that situation is like having had to live with 14 people and put my best face forward every morning in a strange environment.

VIDEO: Dave Chappelle gives first interview in five years



Dave Chappelle dropped in on San Francisco's Wild 94.9 station to chat with morning DJ JV recently, and he covered a variety of topics, including the supposed "meltdown" set he had in Miami.

If you recall, Chappelle made headlines for a July standup set at a charity event where he refused to tell jokes for roughly 45 minutes. In the blog world, the fact that a vocal chunk of the audience had been both heckling and recording Chappelle from the moment he walked out on stage was played much smaller next to the "Dave Chappelle Meltdown" leads. Hearing him explain the situation in detail in this interview makes two things clear: 1) it's hard to blame him for turning on that particular audience, and 2) this is a rational, intelligent man who knows his craft.

Beyond the Miami show, Chappelle also talks about living in Ohio, showbusiness as an addiction, and giving Kanye West his first appearance on television.

Emma Stone and Chris Hemsworth's reality show pasts

In 2004, a pre-"Superbad" Stone showed off her singing skills on the reality show, "In Search of the Partridge Family," hoping to win a role on the network's revival of the musical program.

Luck must have been on her side because -- spoiler alert! -- Stone actually went on to win a spot on "The New Partridge Family" as Laurie Partridge, but the show didn't make it past a pilot episode.



Chris Hemsworth appeared on Australia's Dancing with the Stars in 2006. When asked about it, Chris has said: "I wasn't much of a dancer. You know, down at the pubs with your mates and a few beers having a dance is a little different than the ballroom. It doesn't really translate."

Lauren Conrad writes her own books.

In her latest blog for Forbes Lauren outlines her writing process.

Lauren attended the Alice +Olivia shoe launch 08-11-11. See more pics and excerpts from her Forbes blog under the cut


I wanted to pull back the curtain on reality television….L.A. Candy was my chance to shed light on the actual realities of my life. Ironically, I was able to reveal these truths through fictional characters.

I always start my books by mapping out a detailed outline. This helps flesh out the story I want to tell—plot, characters and everything in between. Once the overarching story of the series is summarized, I break it down and do another outline for each book, focusing on each main character’s narrative arc. After I share the outline with my editor and get feedback, I begin writing—my favorite part of the process. I prefer to do my writing late at night when my cellphone isn’t ringing, my roommates are asleep and all is quiet.

First look at Miranda Cosgrove after the Bus Accident!



Following a frightening tour bus accident Thursday morning, Miranda Cosgrove popped up at Los Angeles International Airport sitting in a wheelchair with her broken ankle in a cast.
 
The 18-year-old iCarly star suffered a fractured right ankle and toe after her bus collided with a tractor trailer in Illinois while she was en route to a concert in Kansas. 

While Cosgrove's mom was also injured in the accident, bus driver Randy McClure, who had to be cut out of the wreckage, suffered the worst injuries.

Charlie Sheen gets pelted with garbage! Apparently still thinks that's called "winning".

Charlie Sheen's winning streak is still alive, even if it's not exactly obvious to the common observer.

The actor seemingly got less than a warm welcome when he appeared onstage at the Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos music festival over the weekend, an event not exactly known for its hospitality. (Just ask Tila Tequila.)

At least, being pelted with garbage and being booed offstage didn't look like a warm welcome to us, but the ICP folks and Sheen's rep are certainly feeling all warm and fuzzy about what went down.

So, what happened to the Chuckster?

First of all, those weren't boos.

"Charlie did not get booed off of the stage," Sheen's rep assures E! News. "The Juggalos were chanting 'whoop- whoop,' which is a show of love. Charlie Sheen did well in front of the Juggalos."

Well, if he's going to do well somewhere...

"It was a huge response. He was tremendously received," the rep adds. "There is no greater compliment to have garbage thrown at an artist. The crowd didn't want him to leave."

Sheen was certainly all excitement prior to the event, tweeting his anticipation: "Gathering of The Juggalos When I say Tech you say 9..! These guys blew my mind Do not walk… Run to get their new album #tech9."

"Big shout out to Psychopathic Records," he added. "Billy Bill, Kodi Sparkman, Joe @ Joey..! ICP Whoop Whoop #Twiztid thank you..!"

But maybe even Sheen wasn't in on the Juggalo joke when he walked onstage to a seemingly hostile crowd.

"I feel like I'm back in Detroit," he cracked, referring to his infamous trainwreck of a first night onstage earlier this year. And when you watch the footage, it certainly sounds like the fans are out for blood.

"Damn," he told the crowd when the junk started flying. "I should've worn my f--king goggles. Before I get impaled, I'm gonna leave the stage."

But whoop-whoop, E! News has heard that Sheen has already been invited to appear at another Juggalo event in the near future.

Sheen capped off his signaturely stellar weekend with a trip to Phoenix's Chase Field, where he took batting practice before the Arizona Diamondbacks faced off against the New York Mets in anticipation of reprising his Wild Thing role in another Major League sequel.

"Epic day in Phoenix! Chase Field @bobmaron, @rickcalamaro Todd Zeile & Tony Todd..! Thank you Derrick Hall & Luis Gonzales!! Go @Dbacks !!" he tweeted.



I've looked high and low for pictures from the weekend that was 'The Gathering of the Juggalos', but all I could find was this article and said video, and the article on the dead Juggalo found in the river (You can read about that here). R.I.P. May you be a down ass Juggalo 4 Lyfe in heaven with Ass Dan! Too soon? Whatever, I'm sure his Juggalo friends are all toasting Faygo in his honor, thinking the same thing. I'm sure pictures will be popping up soon though. I mean, last year we had thousands of them within a couple days.

ecctv found a Tumblr full of ~stunning, flawless, beautiful~ pictures from the event! http://drivenbyboredom.tumblr.com/ NSFW obviously, due to titties and hoo has flying all up in there!

Winehouse tribute happening, more on Britney's tribute.

A tribute to Britney Spears will be a part of this year's MTV Video Music Awards and the show's producers are discussing a way to salute Amy Winehouse as well.

"Britney will be at the show and we'll be paying tribute to her," VMA executive producer Amy Doyle told Billboard.com, confirming speculation that has grown since a Spears promo for the show began airing.

"She was having an incredible year and she is so beloved by the MTV audience that we started to think what could we do that would be a different experience (from years past)," said Doyle, the executive vice president of Music and Talent for MTV. "Obviously everything from her choreography to her fashion to her videos will be (covered). We said 'let's challenge ourselves to do something unique'."


In addition to the Spears tribute, VMA producers are "talking about acknowledging" Winehouse, who died July 23 in London. "We had a great history with Amy," Doyle said, mentioning a performance she did for the network's "45th at Night" show in 2007. "She was very near and dear to us."

This year's VMAs will be broadcast from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Aug. 28. The network hopes to announce a host in the near future and Doyle suggested that the show would continue the recent trend of bringing in newer talent as hosts. Chelsea Handler handled last year's telecast, Russell Brand the year before.

Adam Lambert Honored at The Los Angeles Equality Awards



Adam Lambert was honored Saturday night at the Equality California Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Producer/Songwriter, Sam Sparro presented Adam with the “Equality Idol” award.

Lambert tweeted, “Thank you Equality California for such a lovely evening!! And @sam_sparro for a great intro.”

He also talked about his upcoming album on the Red Carpet at last night’s VH1 Do Something Awards.

He can’t really spill much about the new album, because it’s not done yet, and things could change as far as songs and the direction. The new album compared to his 2009 debut will be “a little more personal, I’m doing a lot more of the writing myself, it’s a bit more contemporary sounding, I think, a bit more ‘now’. And I think it’ll hopefully get people to maybe try not judging a book by its cover.”

Lambert has 30-35 songs in various states of completion and is rumored to working towards a late fall release.
