Trini Died 10 years ago.



Ten years ago Thuy Trang died in a car accident at the age of 27 on September 3, 2001 near San Francisco, California. She and former actress/model Angela Rockwood-Nguyen, wife of Dustin Nguyen, to whom Trang was to be a bridesmaid later that year, were passengers in a car traveling on Interstate 5 between San Francisco and Los Angeles. They were returning from visiting Rockwood-Nguyen's planned maid of honor when the driver (another of the bridesmaids) of the vehicle she was riding in lost control. The car swerved violently across the road before hitting the roadside rock face and flipping several times before hitting the safety rail and plunging over the bank.

Palin in Korea: Where's John Stewart When You Need Him

Sarah Palin is heading to South Korea to attend… wait for it, let the anticipation linger… the World Knowledge Forum. (Raucous laughter) This is the woman who last year after the shelling of a South Korean island told listeners of the Glen Beck show that we must “Stand with our North Korean allies.”

It’s just too good, and too bad that Mr. Stewart is out on vacation. I wonder if he isn’t kicking himself at the missed opportunity.

Every time Britney Spears sings "baby" and "crazy" in one supercut

Five and a half mesmerizing minutes guaranteed to drive you crazy (baby).

We love supercuts here at IFC.com, these homemade compilation montages of pop culture tropes or cliches that have become so popular on the Internet in the last couple years. Usually they're about movies or TV shows -- every goofy Arnold Schwarzenegger wise-crack or every Don Draper "What?", to name two popular examples -- but this one is about music. And it is amazing.

It's a highlight reel of every single time pop queen Britney Spears has sung -- or whispered or warbled or Auto-Tuned -- the words "baby" or "crazy" over the course of her entire career. She likes these words a lot. A lot. Maybe too much, which is what I think this supercut goes to show.



Equally chilling and mesmerizing, this supercut is also really interesting because it enables us to hear something designed to sound sexy stripped (no pun intended) of the context that might enable us to discern its erotic content. Britney's cooing baby over and over but we don't know who she's talking to or why. And she sounds kind of crazy as a result (baby).

The 10 Best Kanye West Rants



Throughout his career, Kanye West has been known as one of the most outspoken figures in hip-hop. His strong convictions have led to numerous rants and speeches and lots of memorable moments both famous and infamous. He’s fought for creative freedom and artistic integrity and in doing so he’s left us with some unforgettable quotes.

Today marks the six year anniversary of the day Kanye uttered one of his most celebrated quotes, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” As much as we love that rant, we can’t help but wonder whether or not it’s his best. To find out, we put together The 10 Best Kanye West Rants. So you better read this post before you start to lose credibility.

The fate of Johnny Depp's 'The Lone Ranger' decided this weekend?

The long proposed Lone Ranger movie from director Gore Verbinski, which would star Johnny Depp as the newly instituted main character of Tonto has appeared doomed since the beginning. Production was stopped due to budget concerns ($250 million dollar movie!), and Depp reportedly said earlier in the week he would jump ship if Verbinski isn't attached to direct.

Rick Genest and Andrej Pejic Make an Impressive Pair




Rick Genest (left) and international cover boy Andrej Pejic (right) generate some intense chemistry in this session by Marcelo Krasilcic for Auslander's spring 2012 campaign.

Genest got his first tattoo at age 16. Prior to modeling for Mugler and costarring in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" video, he worked in a circus freak show in his native Montréal. Now at 25 he is completely covered except for his knees, legs, feet, and butt.

Pejic was discovered while attending high school in Melbourne, Australia, and quickly landed the fall/winter 2010-2011 campaigns for Jean-Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. He'ss quickly became famous for his androgynous look and playing both male and female roles in shoots, though in the fashion world this has been a topic of interest rather than outrage.

Gucci Award for Women



On Friday night, at the 68th Venice Film Festival, the inaugural Gucci Award for Women in Cinema was awarded by Madonna to Jessica Chastain, the unconventionally beautiful breakthrough star of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.

The aim of the award is, says Gucci, to "recognise an outstanding achievement by a woman in filmmaking", and the nominees were selected by an advisory committee led by the Venice Film Festival's director Marco Mueller. The final choice came down to a jury of the creative director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, the actors Robin Wright, Valeria Golin and James Franco, and the film journalist and Venice's US programmer Giulia D'Agnolo Vallan. As part of the prize, Gucci will give US$25,000 (Dh92,000) to the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in Chastain's name.

Celebrity Exes Who Have Stayed Friends

Although these days it seems like everybody and their dog has a reality show, when it comes to the real rich and famous, they're still a select few -- far too small a group to hold a grudge. No one knows this better than these ex-couples. Whether it was a summer fling gone sour or a decade-plus long marriage gone awry, these celebs have managed to keep their cool long after they've signed on the dotted line.

A few feuding couples -- we won't mention names -- should definitely take note of these mature break-up tactics.

Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon



Reese Witherspooon and Ryan Phillippe found young love in 1999 before welcoming a son and daughter. But things weren't a typical Hollywood ending for the pair -- they split eight years later. The duo is still more than amicable as they co-parent their two children.

Contagion Cast premiere in Venice



With the annual Venice Film Festival in full swing, the cast of “Contagion” hit the red carpet for their film's premiere at Palazzo de Cinema on Saturday night (September 3).

Joining in on the celebration were lovely actress Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as newly-bald actor Matt Damon (who was joined by wife Luciana Barroso), as well as fellow co-star Laurence Fishburne.

For the sci-fi thriller, Damon teamed back up with director Steven Soderbergh - who also directed him in the “Ocean's Eleven” movies starting back in 2001.

“Steven sent me the script with a note that said, ‘Read this and then go wash your hands,’” said Damon, with a laugh. “After seeing this movie in a theater filled with strangers, I’m sure that thought will definitely cross peoples’ minds.”

As for "Contagion," the picture - which hits theaters on September 9th - also stars Jude Law and Kate Winslet while being an "action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak."

An inauspicious start to Adele's new tour...

Illness forces Adele to postpone the first 2 shows of her September UK Tour

3 September 11

It is with regret that due to a severe cold and chest infection, Adele has had to postpone the first two shows of her UK tour in Plymouth on Sunday September 4th and Bournemouth on Monday September 5th 2011.

The shows will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity and all original tickets will remain valid. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to seeing you all at the rescheduled shows.

Posted at both her official site, and on FB.

I attended the last show she did on the US tour, on August 24, and she said was looking forward to a bottle of wine after the show. Combine that with the beautiful pic of her sharing a ciggie with Joe Calderone at the VMAs leads to a bit of grumbling on FB.

Also, for a bit of a pick-me-up, she performed on Jonathan Ross last night.

Shia & Manson Are BFFs Again

This is a follow-up to this post.

Water under the bridge then?
Shia LeBeouf steps out with Marilyn Manson after spitting H20 all over him




Despite his intimidating exterior, it seems that Marilyn Manson is one forgiving friend.



It was a case of water under the bridge last night, as the goth shock rocker stepped out with Shia LeBeouf following the launch of his new video Born Villain, which was directed by the Transformers star.



The 25-year-old actor attended the event with his girlfriend Karolyn Pho at the Hennessey and Inglalls bookstore in Los Angeles, just one week after he reportedly spat water all over her and the 42-year-old musician.



Shia kept underwraps in his favorite baseball cap and his growing beard. He wore light blue, black faded jeans and scuffed black dress shoes. His girlfriend Karolyn was equally as shy, covering up her face with a black clutch. The exotic beauty slipped into a patterned long-sleeve maxi dress for the occasion.

Her family hired me as a maid for 12 years, but then she stole my life and made it a Disney movie

'The Help' Author gets called out by her former maid for being 'a racist' and stealing her life story...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Millions have read Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling novel The Help with a mixture of fascination and raw, often tearful, emotion.

Based on the lives of black servants in America’s Southern states of the Sixties, it is a sharply observed portrait of a racially charged, segregationist world that some might say has barely passed.
It has also proved a literary phenomenon, selling five million copies worldwide, 500,000 of them in Britain.
And next month Disney’s film version will open here. When Abilene Cooper picked up her copy, however, her reaction was rather different. Instead of sympathy for the characters of The Help, there was anger and devastation.

As she turned the pages she came to believe that the story at the heart of the book – an unlikely friendship between a white girl and a black maid – was her own. Her life, she believes, has been stolen, without acknowledgment or payment.

Certainly the name is hers, although in the book the heroine is spelt Aibileen. The city, Jackson, Mississippi, is correct, and like the characters in The Help, she has spent much of her life working in white households.

Intriguingly, these include the household of Kathryn Stockett’s brother and sister-in-law, where she has been a maid and nanny for 12 yearsCollapse )

ONN Lands Exclusive Interview with Beyonce....'s Fetus


New York, NY (September 1, 2011) - Just days after the announcement of pop megastar Beyonce Knowles' pregnancy took tabloids and celebrity gossip websites by storm, ONN has already conducted the first-ever interview with the singer's unborn child.

ONN anchor Brooke Alvarez conducted the interview with the fetus at Beyonce's home in Hollywood using ultrasound equipment and a specially-designed microphone inserted into the "Bootylicious" singer's womb. In an in-depth, two-hour conversation Ms. Alvarez and the fetus discussed topics ranging from what gender it will be to what life is really like inside the world's most famous pop star.

"The fetus really opened up to me," said Ms. Alvarez, "It does not yet have the life experience or brain functionality to understand social norms, so it was very candid."

The interview became heated at one point when Ms. Alvarez questioned the fetus about accusations that it has repeatedly kicked Ms. Knowles. In what is sure to be a much-buzzed about moment, the fetus appeared to deny the domestic abuse charge when it moved the fleshy, fingerless nub of its hand toward its pre-formed mouth and said nothing.

The fetus may already have a bit of its mother's diva streak. Ms. Alvarez says at one point a crew member pushed a napkin and a pen up to the fetus in hopes of getting an autograph, but the unborn star refused to sign. Reportedly it did not even return the pen.

The second season of Onion News Network premieres October 4th at 10pm on IFC.

Vanity Fair, it must be said, is a pretty classy magazine, and this month, they're featuring a pretty classy young lady: Elizabeth Olsen, star of MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE and featured in the magazine's Vanities section.

In MARTHA, Elizabeth ("Lizzie" to her friends) plays a mentally unstable girl who is lured into, then escapes, a cult lead by the menacingly mesmerizing John Hawkes. Not that you'd know by the article below, which shows Elizabeth as we assume she is in her everyday life: fresh faced and ready to blow minds.

Best Rapper Alive projected to sell 1 million first week



When the initial reports came in that Lil Wayne was looking at a likely week of somewhere between 600 and 750k, we thought he should be thankful—with all the delays and the underwhelming fan response, anywhere in that range seemed like a pretty respectable showing to us. But then, the numbers changed — Billboard reported yesterday that Wayne was more likely to come in at around 850,000. And now, projections have gone up again: HITS Daily Double reports that Weezy is closer to the 925-975k range, very clearly in striking distance of a cool mil.

Lil Wayne shattered the iTunes record for first-week U.S. album sales in just four days with a total over 300k. His new Cash Money Records/Universal Republic album, Tha Carter IV, topped the previous record, which was set just two weeks ago by Jay Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne at 290k and held by Coldplay before that with 282k from all digital outlets. Based on current trends, Weezy’s first-week downloads from all DSPs could approach 375k for the album, which is slated to debut on Tuesday with 925-975k in total sales.

Weezy up in your ass like a tampon!

Jessie J to join Tulisa Contostavlos for 'X Factor' Judges' Houses


Jessie J will reportedly appear as a mentor on The X Factor during the Judges' Houses stage of the competition.

The 'Do It Like A Dude' singer will join N-Dubz star and new judge Tulisa Contostavlos in Greece later this month to help finalise her category for the live shows.

Show boss Simon Cowell, who wanted Jessie J to perform on last year's X Factor final, is said to have intervened to get her involved.

A source told The Sun: "He's keen for her to sing on the show."

Beyoncé will apparently join Kelly Rowland in Miami, while Louis Walsh is said to be livid after Adele, who he'd asked to join him in Barcelona, was replaced with Sinitta as a mentor.

Jay-Z's 40/40 Club Gets The Union Rat Treatment

Fresh off last weekend's confirmation that there will be a mini-Z roaming the hallways of Roc-A-Fella records in the near future, Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in the Flatiron district has come under scrutiny this week for sketchy labor practices, prompting some inflatable union rats to appear. Jay-Z's got 99 problems, and a labor dispute is one.

A representative from the New York City District Council of Carpenters explained what the fight is over to Curbed in an email, writing:

A rat is a contractor that does not pay all of its employees the Area Standard Wages, including either providing or making payments for family health care and pension benefits. Shame on the 40/40 CLUB & Shawn Carter aka Jay Z for contributing to the erosion of area standards for New York City Carpenters. The New York City District Council of Carpenters has a labor dispute with A&V Drywall which is performing work at 6 West 25th Street in NYC. 40/40 CLUB & Shawn Carter aka Jay Z is responsible for hiring CONELLE CONSTRUCTION CORP. Conelle Construction does not meet area labor standards, including providing or fully paying for family healthcare and pension for all of its carpenter craft employees.

The club, which is currently closed for renovations and due to re-open on November, responded to the accusations, telling TMZ that they are in a non-union building and are not required to use union contractors. In addition, they allege that some protestors have been using racial slurs against the workers, which the rep called a "poor tactic" to try intimidate people and scare away business. And if there's one area Jay-Z knows how to traverse, it's this world; after all, he's a business man, not a business, man.
