Family Of Crown Heights Riots’ Victim Incensed Rev. Al Sharpton Was Invited To Speak At Panel


As New York City approaches the 20th anniversary of the Crown Heights riots, the family of Yankel Rosenbaum is unhappy that Rev. Al Sharpton will participate in a panel discussion about the state of black and Jewish relations.

Despite the criticism, Rabbi Marc Schneier, who is hosting the panel at the Hamptons Synagogue in West Hampton this Sunday, said the topic of conversation is not directly or solely related to the riots themselves. He spoke with 1010 WINS Wednesday and defended his decision to invite Sharpton.

ONTD's Favorite Croat To Guest Star On "Pan Am"

Goran Visnjic has been cast in a four-episode arc on the upcoming 1960s-set airline drama.

The actor, who played Dr. Luka Kovac for nearly a decade on the NBC hit, will portray a sexy Yugoslavian immigrant torn between his communist Eastern Bloc homeland and the potential freedoms and opportunities of the West.

Frances Bean Cobain Models Again, Channels '30s Glamour



Last week, the entire blogosphere stopped en masse to stare with wonder and exhilaration at a young woman named Frances Bean Cobain, who looked defiantly out of shots done by designer/photographer Hedi Slimane. Today, we received another batch of Frances Bean images, this time from Los Angeles photographer (and friend) Rocky Schenck. The shoots could not be more different: Slimane's are rough and stark, while Schenck's show Frances as a glamorous, slightly tortured beauty. Loosely tied hair, pouting lips, vintage outfits instead of ripped and torn T-shirts. Though not channeling her rocker history, these pictures are just as alluring.

Julianne Moore reunites with the rest of "The Big Lebowski" cast + re-teams with Todd Haynes

The Big Lebowski cast reunites for Lebowski-fest

The cast of The Big Lebowski reunited last night (August 16) to mark the release of the Blu-Ray DVD. Turning up at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, to a crowd of almost 2,500 were Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore and John Turturro.

Also in attendance was writer/producer Jeff Dowd, said to be the inspiration for The Dude's lackadaisical hero. You can view video of the actors talking about their experiences and love of filming The Big Lebowski in the video below.

Joel and Ethan Coen, the makers of the 1998 classic, were not in attendance.

The launch party for the re-issue of the cult film coincided with the annual Lebowski-Fest, a yearly event in which fans of The Dude and company join to celebrate all things Lebowski-esque.

Started in 2002, The Lebowski-Fest features fans dressing up as their favourite characters, competing in trivia contests and, whenever possible, drinking White Russians and bowling.

Meet Adam Levine's Gay Brother



Out Magazine interviewed Maroon 5's lead singer Adam Levine and here is what he had to say about his brother Michael and being gay:

“I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired,” he says, laughing. “Trust me, you’re born with it. My brother is gay, and we knew when he was two. We all knew.”

Instead of a family freak-out, the Levines doubled down. “We all really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it’s OK,” Levine says. “A lot of people don’t want their kid to be gay and will fight it at all costs. But I’ve got news for you—it’s a losing fucking battle. The more you fight it, the more fucked-up your kid’s gonna be. You’ve just gotta embrace it from the beginning. That’s the only way to deal with it as a family. Otherwise, you’re just screwing yourself over, and you’re gonna make your kid miserable.”

X Factor's new judge Ms Contostavlos reveals new £12,000 teeth as part of makeover for show

She's always been known as something of a gobby pop star - but N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos has now quite literally put her money where her mouth is.

The new X Factor judge has apparently splashed out £12,000 on a gleaming new Hollywood smile - just like Cheryl Cole did before she made her debut on the show.

The 25-year-old brunette beauty debuted her new teeth on the red carpet today at the official launch of the new series of the show at London's O2 Arena.

Lady Gaga's Little Sister: the Next Great Fashion Designer



We all met Lady Gaga's little sister Natali Germanotta when she had a little cameo in the epic "Telephone" video alongside her sibling and Beyoncé. Not a bad gig, right? We're willing to bet that's not the last time her sis will step in to help boost her career: Natali is a fashion student, and according to WWD, she is in the running to design costumes for a new off-Broadway show named "Simon Says." The play will make its debut this fall in New York City, and a job as a costume designer could really help to kick-start the 19-year-old's career in fashion.

Natali has already interned for the New York-based eco-friendly designer Allison Parris, who has nothing but wonderful things to say about the littlest Gaga:

"Natali has an edgier sense of style like her sister. Initially when she went to the Grammys a few years ago, she wore one of our little lace trapeze dresses, but she styled it up with leather and hardware. She is so nice and so easy to work with. She is such a great girl."

If this costume design gig falls through, we bet that Lady Gaga could make a quick phone call to Nicola Formichetti at Mugler or Jean Paul Gaultier or Donatella Versace (OK, pretty much anyone) to find Natali another sick internship. Perhaps she can design for the Haus of Gaga? Either way, when it comes to the next generation of great American fashion designers, we should probably keep an eye out for this girl.

Brooke Hogan on the set of . . . wait for it . . . "2 Headed Shark Attack"



From Caught on Set: Brooke Hogan is spotted on the set of her new film 2 Headed Shark Attack in the Florida Keys earlier this week (August 16). The former Hogan Knows Best star was showing off her smoking hot bikini body in a tiny two-piece.

Speaking of bikinis, AnnaLynne McCord was spotted in one last week while filming 90210 - check out the pics here.

The synopsis of the film sounds like it has the makings of a cult classic: “When a ‘Semester at Sea’ ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark, the survivors escape to a deserted atoll. But when it starts flooding, the coeds are no longer safe from the double jaws of the monster.”

James Blake and Bon Iver to collaborate for musical perfection

Not only will next week bring us some long-awaited new material from the great Tom Waits, but a potentially epic collaboration between two of the most buzz-worthy falsetto-singing indie songwriters around will arrive as well: “Fall Creek Boys Choir,” a new release from Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon) and London’s James Blake, is due out on August 24th. News of the team-up came early this morning via Blake’s Twitter.

Further details have been left deliberately cryptic, of course, but we’ll keep you posted when their debut collaborative effort hits the Web. In the meantime, revisit Bon Iver’s gorgeous piano-backed take on Bonnie Raitt and Blake’s version of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” below:

Gwyneth Paltrow Saved a Life on 9/11


Gwyneth Paltrow is already an Oscar winner, cookbook author, mother of two and wife of a rock star – and now she can add lifesaver to her list of accomplishments.

Lara Lundstrom Clarke believes her life was saved by a chance encounter with the actress on Sept. 11, 2001, according to The Morton Report.

Clarke was rushing to get to work at the Twin Towers in New York City when she jaywalked in order to get to the subway station. As she crossed 7th Avenue, a Mercedes SUV came barreling toward her.

Both Clarke and the car stopped in their tracks, and as the driver waved her across she realized it was Paltrow behind the wheel. The near-collision caused Clarke to miss her train, and by the time she got to work, the first plane had hit the World Trade Center.

Four people in her office died that day.


Much like Sliding Doors, the movie starring Paltrow about a chance romantic encounter that depended on catching a train, Clarke's life was forever changed by her moment with the actress.

When contacted by The Morton Report, Paltrow's publicist Stephen Huvane confirmed the accuracy of the incident and added that Paltrow, 38, was "deeply moved" by the story.

Kanye West records new version of Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black'


Kanye West has recorded a new version of 'Back To Black' in tribute to Amy Winehouse, according to tabloid reports today.

The rapper, who has just released 'Watch The Throne', his collaboration album with Jay-Z, will reportedly debut the track in London next month, according to the Daily Mirror.

A source told the paper that the rapper had put his own spin on the title track from the singer's hugely successful second album and that he has added synthesizers.

The source said: 'It's pretty emotive. It's Kanye singing from the heart – with synthesizers.'

Kanye West will embark on a joint US tour with Jay-Z to promote 'Watch The Throne' in the late autumn and is also continuing work on his sixth studio album.

The rapper joins Green Day in announcing this week that they have written a song in tribute to Winehouse after the pop punkers debuted new track 'Amy' online earlier this week.

When Anne Hathaway busted out her anti-paparazzi rhymes Tuesday night on “Conan,” she wasn’t just demonstrating her ability to rap in the style of Lil Wayne. She was joining a small but apparently growing network of white, famous women who have unexpectedly rapped on late night television.

Amy Poehler did it on “Saturday Night Live” back in 2008 when she spat out lyrics to a Sarah Palin rap. Gwyneth Paltrow also did it earlier this year during an appearance on BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show.” So which woman has the most legit skills?

Nivea's Racist Ad "Re-civilizes" a Black Man



Nivea must have a serious lack of diversity on their marketing team, because there is no other explanation for why an ad like this got approved. The ad features a preppy, groomed black man holding the head of his former self, who's sporting a beard, an afro, and a pissed-off expression. The words "Re-civilize Yourself" are scrawled across the image, with the smaller phrase "Look like you give a damn" on top. The message couldn't be clearer: natural hair on a black man isn't a style preference or a nod to afrocentrism—it's straight-up uncivilized.

GaGa has reportedly been staying at a $6,900-a-night hotel, and paid an extra $394 for the lesson.

Ellie Goulding Interview

"Last time around I wasn't quite prepared for an American tour," Ellie Goulding told Billboard.com at our backstage Lollapalooza tent. "But this time I know what to expect, I know how much sleep I need to get, I know how I need to not drink, and it's all good." Watch our interview below.



Goulding's hustle has been gaining more and more momentum since Coachella, from a headlining U.S. tour to "SNL" musical guest status to Royal Wedding performer. As the "Starry Eyed" singer wraps her one-woman British Invasion, she tells us that her next step is to head back to her native U.K. to start work on a new album. "I want to come back," Goulding says, stressing that she's not a singles-focused artist. "I want to have a dedicated fanbase."

Amidst her fans are folks you may have heard of: Rihanna, Paramore's Hayley Williams, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, all of whom seem to tickle Goulding's fancy. "There's been people that I used to love that like my music. The first person who comes into my head is Hayley from Paramore, who tweeted about me... I listened to a lot of her records when I was a bit younger and she helped me sing quite a bit," Goulding said.

Michael Gracey to Direct 'The Greatest Showman on Earth'

 

http://i.imgur.com/Y3LvV.jpg

 

The Fox biopic will star Hugh Jackman as circus showman P.T. Barnum.

Commercials director and visual effects wizard Michael Gracey is lining up another studio job: 20th Century Fox’s contemporary musical The Greatest Showman on Earth, starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum.

Gracey is set to direct the biopic, about the legendary showman who created the three-ring circus, and loved to hoax a gullible public. A focal point of the movie is Barnum’s infatuation with opera singer Jenny Lind, called the Swedish Nightingale. So far, no actress has been cast for the role.

Greatest Showman was penned by Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City). Jackman and producing partner John Palermo are producing with Laurence Mark (Dreamgirls).

In recent weeks, Gracey’s feature career has been rising like a thermometer in the summertime: In early August, he was chosen to helm Disney’s live-action pic The Order of the Seven.

Gracey is repped by CAA, Partizan and Hirsch Wallerstein.

MTV's New Star Is Fabulous, Fashionable – and 324 Lbs

Get More: MTV Shows



There's a new reality TV starlet coming to Tinseltown in pursuit of a career in the fashion industry. But this girl doesn't exactly fit the Lauren Conrad mold.

For starters, she weighs 324 lbs.

MTV tells PEOPLE that the network will debut a new series this fall that follows Chelsea Settles, 23 – whom they describe as "a new kind of MTV heroine" – as she ditches her small town roots for life in the City of Angels, all while struggling to lose weight.

Unlike Conrad, 25 – who seemed to effortlessly fit the mold of a Teen Vogue intern or a People's Revolution employee – Settles's attempt to get her foot in the fashion door will be more challenging.

Leaving behind a military boyfriend who isn't always supportive, and a mom struggling with severe diabetes in her hometown outside of Pittsburgh, Settles embarks on her dream journey while facing her biggest hurdle: her size.


The new reality star will have "an opportunity to expand her social life by confronting the social phobias that have been holding her back," MTV explains in a press release. "[She'll have a chance] to take control of her weight in an effort to get healthy."

Viewers will also get a glimpse at the typical stresses that come with relocating and weight loss, including having a roommate for the first time, finding a job, working with a trainer and experiencing the L.A. social scene.

The series, which premieres with a special hour-long episode on Oct. 11 (11:00 p.m ET), will show Settles realizing that "her new environment may not be everything she thought or hoped."

The Hills, this is not.

Russell Armstrong: Villain or Victim?




Russell Armstrong to mother before suicide: 'They're just going to crucify me this season'



Russell Armstrong was more than $1.5 million in debt at the time of his suicide Monday, according to his attorney, and his mother told Headline News that he was dreading the way he would be portrayed in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Before the new season even started, before he took his life, he said, ‘Mom, they’re just going to crucify me this season,’” John Ann Hotchkiss told HLN’s Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell. “He said, ‘I don’t know what to do. I’ll never survive it.’”


Armstrong’s attorney Ronald Richards told ABC News that the show’s celebration of outrageous excess plunged Armstrong into debt “as a result of trying to keep up with expectations for the lavish lifestyle portrayed on the show. 


“These couples join these shows, and then they keep trying to outdo each other and they end up spending all their money trying to sustain a lifestyle that’s unrealistic and wasn’t there prior to the show,” continued Richards. “The weekly social events, the dinners and all the BS, trying to pretend you have unlimited resources in Beverly Hills is tough. When every night is a potential sound bite or posting on a website, you end up getting addicted to it, you go out all the time.”


Bravo declined to comment on these remarks.

Elizabeth Olsen: Hollywood gets young women wrong



There is no shortage of young women on the big screen these days, with the "Twilight" movies in full flower and Disney Channel "it" girls like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez solidifying their move into features.


But at least one emerging actress from that demographic says that the abundance of personalities doesn't mean Hollywood accurately portrays women in their late teens and early 20s.


Elizabeth "Lizzie" Olsen, the star of Sundance hit "Martha Marcy May Marlene" (more on that film, which looks to be a breakout this fall, in the weeks to come), says she feels frustrated by what she sees as Hollywood's binary depictions of young women.

Trailer for "Texas Killing Fields" w/ Sir, Queen of 2011 Jessica Chastain & Poor Man's Joel Edgerton



In their upcoming drama The Debt Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain take on both Israeli and slightly affected German. In their next film together, they trade those modulations in for a Texan-southern drawl. Which is particularly impressive for the Australian Worthington.

The pair -- who joked with the Huffington Post that they have a "five picture deal" together -- star in the upcoming Texas Killing Fields, based on the true story of two cops who find that a murder they're investigating is connected to a long string of killings that, as the name implies, take place in a field. The film also stars Chloe Moretz, who plays a tough kid who may be the next victim.

The film hits theaters on October 7th.

Listen To A Snippet Of Nicki Minaj Singing On David Guetta’s “Turn Me On”




After popping bubbles with the bombastic “Where Dem Girls At”, Nicki Minaj and David Guetta have teamed up for another song off the electro producer’s Nothing But The Beat (August 29). On “Turn Me On”, Minaj puts aside her slick rhymes and shows off her vocals as she takes a shot at singing the song’s euphoric chorus. Hear a snippet below.


“I am so proud of what [Nicki] did on this record because we know her for those crazy raps but the other record that we have, she is singing like—oh man,” Guetta recently told Billboard about Nicki’s vocal chops on this song. “The world is gonna be shocked.”


Guetta, dude, slapping Auto-Tune on a rapper’s singing voice doesn’t turn her into Christina Aguilera. We’d say we’re mildly surprised at best.


What do you think of Barbie belting out instead of rapping? Or are you reserving judgment til you hear the full song?

Not really feelin' the track, but its nice that she's trying something different outside of rapping. Most pop stars these days get away with using autone every time they "sing" so why shouldn't she right?

Linda Perry disses Katy Perry



"It's the crappy, like who wants a fucking Katy Perry record? I'm sorry. You know, you're gonna get the two songs that are probably the hits that are good but the rest of the album is gonna be crap. It is, it's gonna sound like shit and who cares about buying that record? So people download the single and then that's it.

And not saying that Katy's bad, I mean she's great for what she does but she's not reinventing the wheel, she's not giving substance, she's giving you know microwave popcorn for you to feast on right at this moment, you know. And that's it and that's what she wants to do obviously: she's not looking to change the world musically, she's not, you know, so all the power to her and everybody who is like that. I'm not saying it's bad, I'm saying it's not what I participate in and that is the reason why the music business is in turmoil so to say."

get your vaccinations ready: jenny mccarthy is getting a talk show

Remember Iyana Vanzant?

No? That's because she double-crossed Oprah and ended up in financial and emotional hell, never to be heard from again.
Someone else is joining the official "I said No to Oprah" club & is on the road to obscurity.


Jenny McCarthy tapes talk-show tryout -- without Oprah

It was Oprah -- who had McCarthy on her afternoon show several times to talk about autism and kids -- who believed she could be a talk-show host.

Oprah’s Harpo Productions signed her to a show, possibly to air on Winfrey’s new cable network, OWN.

But, after a year or more of trying to develop the show, McCarthy cut ties with Harpo last month. Reportedly, Harpo wanted her to host a late-night talk show for OWN along the lines of E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” hosted by Chelsea Handler.

Jenny was strung along for so long, and they’d been talking about a daytime talk show for years,” says a source. “Harpo was giving her the run-around"

Harpo was also putting most of its time and resources into a new daily show hosted by Rosie O’Donnell, which is being taped in the old “Oprah” studio in Chicago and is set to debut in October.

The daytime landscape -- now that Oprah is gone -- seems wide open to TV stations. The pilot was taped in front of a live audience that did not know exactly what it would be seeing until the show started. “We do not comment on shows in development,” an NBC/Universal spokeswoman said yesterday.

ONTD POTTERMORE DISCUSSION



Ok, it's been almost a week and a lot of us have yet to get that blasted email (including me -sobs-).

Who got in, who didn't, find out when these friggin' emails go out, etc etc.

To the people who got in: What's it like??? Is it freaking amazing?? What house did you get in?? Weirdest question you got in the sorting questions??

BUT NO BIG SPOILERS

PHARRELL PARTY POST! Pharrell's Top 25 HIP HOP (read carefully) Hooks




Pharrell has been one of popular music's premier producers for the past decade, and he's still absolutely relevant. In the past month alone, he's made headlines for starting the entertainment company I Am Other, launching Qream Liqueur, joining Twitter, and raking in $10 million last year (according to Forbes). Still, we haven't forgotten what he does best: music. More specifically, choruses. Hooks. The catchy part of the song that everyone loves. We combed through P's catalog and pitted his greatest ones against each other.

Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open, the sun will rise.

Anthony Bourdain Disses Paula Deen, Calls Her "Dangerous to America"

Celebrity chefs Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain have their well-sharpened knives away from the food and aimed at each other.


In one corner, we have the globe-trotting No Reservations host, Kitchen Confidential author and adventurous eater Bourdain. In the other, we have plump Georgia peach Deen, who's famous for her buttery cooking and dessert displays on the Food Network.


Which, apparently, Bourdain has a real issue with. So much so that he's calling her a danger to us humans.

Kirsten Dunst talks about looking cute, her teeth and lack of body issues

Kirsten Dunst on the cover British Elle, September Issue. Ph. David Slijper, Interviewer: Louise Gammon [via tfs]


On her style: I'm 29. I keep thinking, "Stop with the cutesy dresses." I'm trying to, I honestly am. I have things in my wardrobe that are too girlie for my age. But I like simple, feminine, casual.

On being 29: I'm much happier, more sure, more definite. Who you are as 25 and who you are at 29 is a very different thing. For me it feels like a 20-year age gap. You live, you learn and you come through the drama to more easy, relaxed perspective.

Forever humble: I'm the girl I was brought up by my family to be. I don't think of myself as any more special than anyone else. OK, I'm an actress, but that's just what I do […] it doesn't give me special powers.

On her teeth: I love my snaggle fangs. They give me character and character is sexy. People comment, but the only person who ever told me to fix them was my mom. Mothers are always like, "Wear lipstick, put on rouge!" They can be shitty about that stuff because they love you. I just went my own way, like daughters do.

On her nude scenes in Melancholia: I didn't work out beforehand, it was all very natural. I don't have any real body issues. I never really overeat, I shed weight in the summer, put it on in the winter and yes, I do have big boobs. People don't realise because I cover up a lot, but they are there. Big boobs.

Guess Jesse James Saw the Wyoming Hiking Photos...Proposes to Kat Von D Again



Kat Von D, Jesse James Engagement Back On

Kat Von D may no longer have her show, but she's back with her man.

Even as TLC announced the cancellation of LA Ink, Von D and Jesse James – who had called off their engagement last month – posted on Twitter separate photos of themselves locked in embraces.

James went a step further and added the caption, "para siempre" – Spanish for "forever."

In an interview with PEOPLE, James made it official. The engagement is back on, and Von D is once again wearing her ring.

"Sometimes you are only given one chance in life," he says. "It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her."

Janet Jackson on lip-syncing, Nicki Minaj's "nip slip," and MJ




 

Janet Jackson has spent her entire performing career in arenas. Such is the life of Michael's little sister, who scored 10 No. 1 pop singles, sold 100 million records and became the only artist to place seven songs from one album ("Rhythm Nation 1814") in Billboard's top 10. Jackson, 45, agreed to answer some questions via email. Her answers were short and sweet, punctuated with emoticons. She didn't give direct or in-depth responses about such controversies as her lip-syncing in concert and her infamous 2004 Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction but she did address them.

NEW MUSIC: Mario "Chipped Away"




A few weeks ago, R&B singer Mario released his latest single, “My Bed”, but more material has since hit the ‘net. “Chipped Away” offers a more mature sound for Mario as he remininsces about the man he was before his former flame changed him, asserting that he’s now better without her. No word on whether this will be included on his upcoming and currently untitled fifth album, but if you’re in the land down under you can catch Mario performing at Winter Beatz 2011, which kicks off on Wednesday in Perth, Western Australia.

There's a download link at the source.

I really like this. His voice gets a little bit nasally but it would be great if someone with a voice brought a hit to r&b.

Where Eli Roth learned his cybersex skills



"How I paid for my student films by pretending to be a woman and having sex with random men. (Sort of).

This link is to a clip of me talking to TMZ about my days as an on line sex operator posing as a Penthouse Pet. This was in 1991, when the internet was only doctors and scientists, and we were given a large, heavy computer terminal with an 800 baud modem built in (dial-up now is 56,000 baud). No images, no voice, just slow blinking text over a dark green screen. I was one of four guys who did this out of our dorm room at NYU. I got $12 an hour and used all the money to pay for my student films. It actually helped me learn how to write quickly, in character, at 100 words per minute. I have to say, I really kept my customers satisfied.

Michael Fassbender Offered Lead in Prisoners

Alcon Entertainment has been trying to get their suspense thriller Prisoners off the ground for a couple of years with Leonardo DiCaprio once attached as well as Training Day director Antoine Fuqua.


Back in April, it was announced that Incendies director Denis Villeneuve had taken over the reins, but ComingSoon.net has now learned from a couple of sources that an offer has gone out to actor Michael Fassbender, last seen playing Magneto in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, to play the lead role of Keller Dove, a carpenter and father of two who abducts and tortures the main suspect when one of his daughters goes missing in order to try and find the real kidnapper.


No word on who will play that suspect or the other key leading role for the detective on the kidnapping case.



Come on, does this look like the face of a torturer?

Britney Spears: Femme Fatale Premieres in November

Britney Spears’ sold-out Femme Fatale tour is coming in November to EPIX, the cross platform premium entertainment service available on television, on demand, online and on Internet-connected devices.

Word travelled quickly among Britney’s millions of followers when she tweeted the news on Friday that she would be taping her sold-out show in Toronto this weekend. Within minutes of her announcement, traffic to EPIX social sites doubled and Britney Spears became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, driven by the frequency of posts and discussion among her eager fans. Ranked by Forbes Magazine at #6 on its 2010 list of the 100 most powerful and influential celebrities in the world, Spears continues to be one of the most mentioned musicians on the Internet.
I am so excited that all my fans will be able to see my Femme Fatale tour on EPIX. I am really proud of this show and I want all of my fans to see it,” said the pop icon.

“EPIX is dedicated to bringing fans closer to the talent they love and we are pleased to connect this truly iconic American star to her large and passionate fan base,” said EPIX President and CEO Mark Greenberg.


As viewers increasingly become active participants in their own entertainment, EPIX is pursuing a cross platform strategy to tap and engage large fan bases online, offering unique access and engagement with their favorite artists. Recent examples include July’s Shatnerpalooza campaign which reached ten million Star Trek fans with the world premiere of William Shatner's original film, The Captains. Other fan favorites presented this year include Bon Jovi, Eddie Izzard, Craig Ferguson and Kevin Smith, whose EPIX Live online chat drew over ten thousand fans who then viewed his exclusive special Too Fat for Forty on EpixHD.com.

Shot this past weekend in 2D and 3D by 3ality Digital at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, the highly anticipated Britney Spears: Femme Fatale will premiere in November on the EPIX network as well as on EPIX on Demand and EpixHD.com.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Discovers A Vibrator In “Hysteria”



The time before the invention of the vibrator is a dark period of world history which I prefer not to think about. But imagine, ladies, if you will, a period when all of a woman’s problems were attributed to “hysteria,” a vague pathological affliction which doctors found could best be cured by applying pressure to a woman’s most delicate regions. A suffering woman could be relieved of her hysteria by hand, of course, but the world needed a device to get the job done more quickly.

“Hysteria” premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and stars Hugh Dancy as a young doctor in Victorian England and Maggie Gyllenhaal as his boss’s daughter, who knows at the root of all these hysterics is a need for pleasure. God bless electricity, that’s all I have to say.

Ke$ha moons LMFAO, wants to see Kim Kardashian naked

In a new interview Ke$ha said writing a good song is better than sex, revealed she wants to see Kim Kardashian naked and even got a lap dance!

Nothing from Ke$ha surprises us anymore.

The pop superstar is currently on tour with "Party Rock Anthem" duo LMFAO, and we can only imagine what goes on behind closed doors on the road.  Whiskey? Check. Shufflin'? Check... And certainly LOTS and LOTS of  glitter. We wouldn't necessarily have thrown "nudity" in the mix... until now.

Ke$ha and LMFAO's Red Foo and Sky Blu stopped by Philly radio station Q102 Wednesday afternoon ahead of their Philadelphia show, and Ke$ha greeted her tourmates in the hallway in true party girl fashion - she mooned them! Talk about making an entrance... and that pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day.

In the radio interview, Ke$ha said that she thinks writing a good song is better than sex, revealed that she'd like to see Kim Kardashian and President Obama naked and even got a lap dance from DJ Maxwell. She truly is hot AND dangerous. Watch the full interview below!

Videos won't embed because they're flash (or am I doing it wrong?), so if you want a little K$ randomness and fun in your life (with the help of a good interviewer, to give him some credit as well), then watch the two videos at the...
