Does Donald Glover's Rap Career Have a Woman Problem?

My friend Gene Demby, the managing editor of Huffington Post’s Black Voices channel, tweeted yesterday, “Is it just me, or does the misogyny in Childish Gambino’s music seem especially pronounced?” I’d stayed away from the music by Donald Glover mostly because my friends who had seen him live hadn’t loved him. And I’d be curious to know whether Glover really believes the things he says about women as Childish Gambino, a persona he seems to use to displace the rage inspired by his treatment by other men onto women, who show up in his songs as hipster groupies, gold diggers, and almost nothing else in between.

It might be the show that brought the wonderful fivesome into our lives but according to Liam Payne, One Direction can't watch X Factor now without feeling the need to vom.

Liam told the Daily Star's playlist: “We can’t watch the show in the same way now. The music makes me really nervous, as soon as I hear that theme tune I feel sick. It takes me backstage again and waiting to perform live.”

We never had 1D down as the nervous kind, they're always so confident and amazing!

Selena Gomez Megapost (Movie News, Candids, & at the The Fulfillment Fund's 2011 Stars Gala)

James Franco is going to a decidedly darker place once he wraps the lead in Disney's "Oz: The Great and Powerful" as he's attached to star in "Spring Breakers," a new project from Harmony Korine.

Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are in talks to star in the story of four college-aged girls who rob a restaurant to afford spring break in Florida, only to get arrested upon arrival.

Should Hudgens' and Gomez's deals close, the risque, avant garde material for which Korine is known would be a change of pace from the safe Disney Channel fare that launched them to stardom.

Korine, whose last film was "Trash Humpers," is best known for scripting Larry Clark's "Kids," as well as both writing and directing "Gummo" and "Mister Lonely." He'll both write and direct "Spring Breakers."

Roberts would play a Southern brunette who feeds off danger, while Gomez would play a religious girl who isn't a thrill-seeker like the rest of the group, which includes Hudgens. Franco will co-star as Alien, a rapping drug and arms dealer who bails them out of jail and entices them to kill his arch-rival.

MJZ prexy David Zander will produce with Chris Hanley of MUSE Prods., as well as Charles-Marie Anthonioz ("Trash Humpers") and Jordan Gertner. Production will take place during spring break in Florida.

Franco, who most recently toplined "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," will soon be seen in a trio of indies -- "Maladies" with Catherine Keener, "The Stare" with Winona Ryder and "Cherry" with Heather Graham. Franco, who's currently prepping several passion projects as a multi-hyphenate, is also expected to co-star in Seth Rogen's directorial debut "The Apocalypse."

Roberts, who's coming off a starring turn in "Scream 4," recently wrapped a supporting role in Lee Toland Krieger's indie dramedy "Celeste and Jesse Forever."

Hudgens, who recently starred in "Sucker Punch" and "Beastly," is currently filming the serial killer thriller "Frozen Ground" with John Cusack and Nicolas Cage. Thesp next stars in New Line's "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" and Ron Krauss' indie "Gimme Shelter."

Coming off "Monte Carlo," Gomez is attached to star in "Hot Mess" and will soon be seen in Disney's "The Muppets."

CAA packaged the project, as the agency reps Korine, Franco, Roberts, Hudgens and Gomez. Franco, Roberts and Hudgens are respectively managed by Miles Levy of James/Levy Management, David Sweeney of Sweeney Entertainment and Evan Hainey of Untitled Entertainment. Hudgens and Gomez are also repped by attorney Stephen Espinoza.

Grace Kelly Exhibit Opens in Toronto on Friday

Torontonians will be able to glimpse the glamour of Grace Kelly when an exhibit on the Oscar-winning actress and princess comes to the city this Friday.

Despite a film career that lasted only five years and a life cut short in a tragic car accident, Grace Kelly left her mark on fashion, popular culture and the times she lived in.

Based on similar shows in Monaco and London, Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess will feature the very public and very personal life of the Oscar-winning actress - a vast collection of artifacts, including jewels, gowns, letters and a collection of her home movies shot on Super 8 film. The exhibit is based on similar shows: a combination of Grace Kelly Style Icon at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London last year, and The Grace Kelly Years, which was on display in Monaco several years ago.

"Although she was among the most photographed women of the 20th century she still remains something of a mystery," says Noah Cowan, artistic director of TIFF Bell Lightbox.

"In all phases of her life she became iconic - as a movie star, as a bride, as a princess - and yet it's hard to actually know who the real Grace Kelly is. I think this show actually takes you inside (her world). You see her personal correspondence, what she loved to wear and what she loved to do."

Penn Badgley & Zoe Kravitz Take a Romantic Stroll On His Birthday

INF Daily’s photogs caught cute new couple Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz taking a romantic stroll together on a chilly Manhattan afternoon yesterday. Penn was on a break from filming Gossip Girl and spent his time wandering around the city with Lenny Kravitz’ daughter.

The pair have been dating since July and have attended a few premieres together but have been otherwise low-key about their relationship. Yesterday just happens to have been Penn’s 25th birthday, and he’s got a new lady love in his life. Not a bad way to spend his day.

Kardashian News: Kris on "The Today Show"/Kim Says Kris' Parents Hate Her

The Kardashian family is screaming it from the mountain tops -- trying to convince the world they DID NOT PROFIT from Kim's ill-fated wedding ... but there seems to be a problem with their logic.

Kris Jenner appeared on "Today" this morning ... and said, "It saddens me to think that one of the rumors is that we’ve sold the television rights for millions of dollars, not true. We profited or she profited – absolutely false."

Jenner's statement follows a stern blog post from Kim -- in which she also stated, "There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this."

This morning, Kim appeared on the "Kyle and Jackie O" show in Australia, and once again insisted she didn't marry for cash ... saying, "I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that, and I think that's really ridiculous that I have to even, you know, kind of defend that but, you know."

Still, Kris admits K&K, "made some money for the pictures that were sold and things like that" ...but says the fam didn't profit, because all of that money went back towards paying for the wedding.

But here's the problem -- most people can't afford a $10 million wedding, and if Kim chose to pump her MASSIVE paychecks back into her wedding, that's her call ... and it STILL COUNTS AS PROFIT. Kim could have had a $6 mil wedding ... and banked $4.

Justin Bieber's legal team has reacted to that allegations calling them “malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false.”

His team adds: “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”

Lindsay Lohan - In Court And Mostly Likely Headed To Jail Or Not Who Knows With This Bitch

Lindsay Lohan will not fight for her freedom in court this morning ... she'll fight for as little jail time as possible.

We've already told you ... Lindsay will concede she violated her probation, but she's hoping she'll only get 2 weeks in the pokey. Here's the thing ... she's dreaming.

We're told the L.A. City Attorney will ask for significantly more time than 2 weeks, and given she'll only serve 20% of the sentence, it's likely the sentence will be measured in months, not weeks.

The hearing starts at 10 AM PT, but we're told everyone is showing up closer to 9 AM.

thirteen movie poster trends that are here to stay and what they say about their movies


1. Tiny People On the Beach, Giant Heads in the Clouds

These movies are always sappy dramas. Do not allow you to be mislead by the trailer or calibre of the people involved into thinking otherwise. The protagonist/his little brother/father and/or love interest is very likely to end up dead. You probably should keep your tissues handy because you'll cry tears of sorrow, tears of joy, tears because you just wasted 13 dollars on this movie. This sort of poster is inevitably used for anything that involves Nicholas Sparks.

'Jersey Shore' sets season 5 premiere date -- VIDEO

The Jersey Shore gang’s return to Seaside now has a premiere date.

The MTV hit will return to its roots on Jan. 5. in its usual Thursdays at 10 p.m. time slot. Last season in Italy averaged an incredible 9.4 million viewers, including DVR. The audience declined for the first time, however, for the season finale. Will a return to Jersey resume the show’s amazing ratings Karma?

Lindsay Lohan - Out Of Court And Headed To Jail, But Not For Long

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lindsay Lohan will serve 30 days in jail, and the judge is holding her on a tight leash to make sure she completes her probation.

Lindsay admitted she violated her probation by not attending therapy sessions as required by the court and by getting kicked out of the Downtown Women's Center.

The judge now says ALL of Lindsay's community service must now be served at the L.A. County Morgue. And the judge gave Lindsay a tight structure on how she must complete the rest of her probation, and if she doesn't the judge will put a warrant out for her arrest and sentence her to an addition 270 days in jail.

As for the 30 days Lindsay is getting now -- the judge made it clear ... NO HOUSE ARREST.

The Sheriff's Dept. tells us Lindsay will serve 20% of the 30 days -- 6 days in jail.

Judge Stephanie Sautner gave Lindsay a strict schedule on completing the rest of her probation -- by December 14, she must have completed 12 days at the morge and 4 psychotherapy sessions. By January 17, another 12 days at morgue and 4 psychotherapy sessions. And so on.

The judge clearly thinks Lindsay needs a rigid structure to complete her sentence, and as the judge put it, Lindsay is holding the keys to the jail cell.

Bieber Brings the Mistletoe, But Wale’s the Big Surprise as Susan Boyle, Miranda Lambert Also Sport Six-Figure Debuts

As of today, Justin Bieber’s Island Def Jam holiday album, Under the Mistletoe, appears to top this week’s new releases in the battle for #1 on next Tuesday’s HITS sales chart, with a total of between 200-225k.

Apparently there’s no question as to the paternity of his new disc, though the iisue remains, does this album trend like a Christmas release or a teenpop effort?

If it trends like the latter, he could get some serious competition from a surprise contender in Warner Bros. rapper Wale, who will make a shockingly good debut on next week's tally. We'll have a clearer picture tomorrow, but here's how things look after one full day of sales.

Wale, the D.C.-based hip-hop artist who was dropped from Interscope after his 2009 debut, Attention Deficit, and signed to rapper Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group imprint at WB, turns out to be the real surprise. First-week estimates from those retailers around the country who haven’t shut down and reopened as Herman Cain campaign headquarters, peg his sophomore album Ambition, to sell between 170-190k, which puts him in the hunt for a red-hot November debut.

The Granny that perennially steals Christmas, Syco/Columbia Great Scot Susan Boyle’s third album, Someone to Watch Over Me, is set for a sales debut in the 145-160k range, sure to grow as 2011 moves to its conclusion.

RCA Nashville country comer Miranda Lambert’s critically lauded fifth studio album, Four the Record, is set for her biggest debut ever, with an estimated 125-140k. Her previous album, 2009’s Revolution, entered the chart with 66k in sales and went on to move 1.4 million in the U.S.

Universal Republic’s very promising Florence & the Machine return with their sophomore album, Ceremonials, on target for an opening week of 85-95k. Welch and company’s 2009 debut, Lungs, has sold 738k in the U.S.

Voltron/EMI R&B star Tyrese’s comeback, Open Invitation, his first album since 2006’s Alter Ego, and his EMI debut, is slated for a surprisingly robust 60-65k

Roadrunner rockers Megadeth’s Thirteen looks to be off to a 40-45k opening, while Lou Reed and Metallica’s controversial WB album, Lulu, perhaps the most critically reviled in Reed’s career since Metal Machine Music, is slated to sell between 12-15k its first week out for those brave souls undeterred by some of the worst word-of-mouth in recent memory.

5 lulziest quotes from future Maury star Mariah Yeater's lawsuit against Justin Bieber

(a follow-up to this post)

5. "Immediately, it was obvious that we were mutually attracted to one another, and we began to kiss."

4. "At the time I asked him to put a condom on for protection, but he insisted that he did not want to. In his own words, he said that because it was his first time he wanted to feel everything."

3. "Based upon the timing as well as the fact there were no other possible men that I had sex with that could be the father of this baby, I believe that Justin Bieber is in fact the father of my baby."

2. "He was on top of me with my legs around him. At the time I was on top of some type of shelf. The sexual intercourse itself was brief, lasting only approximately 30 seconds."

1. "He began touching me and repeatedly said he wanted to fuck the shit out of me."

My Week With Marilyn to screen at Buckingham Palace *

*unconfirmed, but this is TWC, they won't deny it because it's not bad press.

What happened when Queen Elizabeth met Marilyn Monroe?

Even the Queen herself is interested in seeing that moment played out on the big screen: She plans to host a showing at the palace of the upcoming film My Week With Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams, a source tells PEOPLE.

In the film, Williams channels the sultry star, portraying Monroe as she was during a brief period in the summer of 1956, when the actress was in the U.K. filming The Prince and the Showgirl. It was during that time that Monroe met the Queen.

The Weinstein Company, which produced the film but would not confirm the Queen's screening, received rare permission to film inside Windsor Castle – not surprising considering the Queen reacted favorably to another of their movies, the Oscar-winning The King's Speech.

One big question remains, however: Whether the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William will attend the showing. (ugh)


Collapse )

In My Week With Marilyn, Michelle Williams gives a stunning performance as Hollywood’s greatest icon. She spent months preparing for the role, and kept a 150-page double-sided yellow notebook on Marilyn’s life. “From what I read, her face, her physique, could fall apart between glances,” Williams says in an interview with Newsweek. “Marilyn Monroe was a character she was playing too.” Here, in her own words, Williams talks about her transformation and how she pulled it off.

L.A. rejoices as Frank McCourt agrees to sell Dodgers

Los Angeles leaders and Dodgers fans reacted with relief and joy to the news that Frank McCourt planned to sell the team.

McCourt had become a divisive figure in Los Angeles over his stewardship of the Dodgers, and there had been a growing push around the city for a change of ownership.

Supervisor Mike Antonovich called the expected sale "a big step forward in restoring a family-friendly baseball franchise for Los Angeles County."

"Frank McCourt's pathetic legacy from shirking responsibility in the Bryan Stow beating case was further soiled by the inference that Bryan had culpability in his own severe beating," he said.

"As a Dodger fan and an Angeleno, it has been a very, very tough season," said Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. "I can't describe the anguish we felt with the beating of Bryan Stow."

Five-months pregnant Beyonce may not be able to turn a triple axel, but that doesn't mean she can't channel her inner figure skater!

The most unique attribute of the ankle-high boot shoes: the heel and toe are bridged by a one-inch platform, thus creating the look of an ice skate.

Since announcing that she was expecting a baby with her husband Jay-Z in August, the "Love on Top" singer has been making headlines with her maternity wardrobe. Rocking everything from thigh-high mini skirts to towering heels, Beyonce has not lost touch with her signature, sexy style.

Luke Evans is having an epic moment: He plays Aramis in 'The Three Musketeers,' Zeus in the upcoming 'Immortals,' and he's also been cast in a strategic role in Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit' films as Bard the Bowman, a heroic human who comes to Bilbo Baggins' aid. Evans talked to Moviefone about 'Immortals' (look for our interview with him about playing the youngest version of the Greek God closer to the movie's release on Nov. 11) and how much he's enjoying shooting the "longest job of his life" in New Zealand.

Tolkien classic — he had yet to descend on New Zealand and Jackson's Middle-earth, but he was excited to dig into his meaty new role.

Now, almost three months later, Evans has finally begun work on the highly anticipated film, and when MTV News sat down with him as he promoted the upcoming sword-and-sandals flick "Immortals," he revealed he's become much better acquainted with a bow and arrow and that there's a lot of warm-fuzzy bonding happening between the cast and crew.

Blind Items

1. Which Jersey Shore star is fond of saying, "It is not gay if someone else is doing the sucking," whenever he is questioned about some of the people he has gone out with.
My Guess: all of them

2. What former A-/B+ list female rocker, recently asked this former A list movie actor and now a solid B if she could borrow $100K from him. The funny thing is even though she asked him for this money she had not said or spoken to the actor in almost five years and only a handful of times since they co-starred in a movie together.

Battles mega post!

Hey, Can Anyone Tell Me the Time Signature?: An Interview with Ian Williams of Battles

For most of the world, when you listen to a song you think, “well I like this, but I wonder how they do it…” But if it’s a song by the band Battles, who Wikipedia defines as a math-rock band, your thought would be more like, “how the hell does anyone do that?” Intricate keyboard and guitar parts merging with almost outrageously complex, syncopated rhythms (courtesy of the former drummer of Helmet) make it worth giving Battles a second, third, and, very probably, a twelfth listen. In spite of the loss of their former vocalist, this trio of musical savants manages to capture and balance each frenetic element of their unique sound into a group of captivatingly catchy songs that comprise their sophomore album, Gloss Drop. In advance of their show at Emo's tomorrow night, we managed to wrangle a few minutes out of guitarist/keyboardist Ian Williams’ busy tour schedule, chatting about Gloss Drop, making noise and mystical triangles. Throw a Bushism in the mix and we’ve got an interview worth reading.

Another divorce

Weston Cage, son of actor Nicolas Cage, files for divorce from wife Nikki Williams

The couple have only been married for six months

Nicolas Cage's son has filed for divorce from his wife of six months, Nikki Williams Cage.

And by the looks of their respective Facebook accounts, the two are already airing their dirty laundry .

"The single life is perfect," Williams, who has removed "Cage" from her profile name, posted on her Facebook wall.

Cage, 21, isn't wasting any time rubbing Williams' nose in his newfound freedom either.

"WELL ITS OFFICAL . THE DIVORCE IS SETTLED! ..................LADIES, DADDY IS BACK ahahahhahahaahh oh god! its on," he wrote on his wall.

The back and forth feuding is the latest chapter in the estranged couple's war of words.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, Cage listed the date of separation as Oct. 24, their six-month wedding anniversary.

Major cracks first appeared between Cage and 22-year-old Williams on the Fourth of July. Los Angeles police rushed to the newlyweds' residence in response to a 911 call about a fight, and arrested both on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

In a sign of things to come, Cage immediately took to Facebook to get out his side of the story, claiming it was all a "misunderstanding" fueled by alcohol.

He then posted a video rant on his Facebook page. "Traditionally, the person that is abused or attacked or victimized is the one who usually breaks up with the other," said Cage in the clip before holding up divorce papers. "I'm not gonna be the one that gets dumped. Because it just wouldn't make sense. Why would I abuse the person I was trying to save?" he asked. "If I hit somebody, which I haven't done in years ... you want war, fine? Then let's have war. You want peace, I prefer that."

Looks like Cage and Williams have chosen war.

Is Zachary Quinto Dating 'Glee' Actor Jonathan Groff?

During 2011, Glee’s Jonathan Groff and Star Trek's Zachary Quinto were frequently spotted palling around Los Angeles and New York, generating industry whispers that the two men are dating. Now that Quinto has joined Groff as an openly gay actor, those whispers have gone from speculation to outright declaration of truth by the National Enquirer

In its November 14th issue, the tabloid claims 34-year-old Quinto and 26-year-old Groff have been dating since last year, but Quinto "felt he couldn’t take their romance public-_until now."

We know that stories in the Enquirer have to be taken with a grain of salt, despite the publication being right about Senator John Edwards’ affair and love child. Still, it’s nice to see the media speculate about gay romances the same way they do with straight ones. The Enquirer piece evens ends on a happy and hopeful note:

"'Zachary and Jonathan are incredibly happy together and very much in love,' said the source. 'Who knows? The next step could be marriage.'"

Sneak Peek: Real World: San Diego

Here is special sneak peek of tonight's episode of The Real World: San Diego, in this brief clip Sam and the gang reflect on the highlighter party (the one that Zach and Ashley refused to go to) then Sam decides to go write on an unsuspecting Ashley, whilst sleeping, though is stifled by Zach.

On this week's episode airing tonight the group shows up at San Diego Pride '11 to participate in some volunteer work but it seems that Zach still isn't quite comfortable around congregations of gay people, even to the point of being mortified at Frank for kissing another guy in front of him, "Oh God, don't do it! Don't do it! Please don't do it!" He says in disgust we saw, on the show's preview to the episode.

In other LGBT-related news, San Diego Pride will be hosting an exclusive viewing party at the Fiesta Cantina (Hillcrest) gay bar in San Diego, CA.

The Real World: San Diego airs tonight at 10PM!


Ethan Zohn's Cancer Returns

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Even as he was enjoying his 20th month of remission from Hodgkin's lymphoma, Ethan Zohn worried about a relapse.

"I don't want fear or cancer to define me, but it's always in the back of your mind," the former Survivor winner tells PEOPLE in a new interview.

His fears were confirmed on Sept. 14, when doctors told him the cancer had returned in his chest.

"It's localized in my lung area," Zohn, 37, says. "But it's good that it's not all over my body."

His girlfriend of eight years, Jenna Morasca, 30, was by his side when Zohn got the news. "She's taking it like the rock star that she is," he says of Morasca, who also won Survivor. "We're both filled with fear and anger and anxiety and gratitude and frustration. But there's so much love there. It's this whole spectrum of emotions."

On Oct. 18, Zohn began a new "smart" form of chemotherapy, SGN-35, that only targets the cancerous cells, which means, he says, "I won't lose my hair again."

After 12 weeks of treatment, Zohn hopes to undergo another stem-cell transplant – this time from one of his brothers, who is a likely match.

"But the doctors won't tell me which one. They didn't want me to start treating one differently than the other," Zohn says. "Of course my whole family is taking bets on who it is."

Although Zohn's life has turned upside down once again, he still plans to run in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 6 to raise money for his Grassroot Soccer organization, which promotes HIV/AIDS education and prevention.

"The doctors think I'm crazy but they gave me the okay," he says. "Cancer isn't going to slow me down. I want people to know that you can still live a fulfilled life and move forward."

Rihanna Unveils ‘Talk That Talk’ Promo Photos

Armed with her 11th No. 1 hit “We Found Love,” Rihanna shows off the promo photos for her sixth album Talk That Talk, coming November 21. The Bajan beauty sports a blazer while slouched in a rusted chair, gripping the brim of her hat in one image. In another, the curly-haired diva straddles the banister of a staircase, while wearing boots and a red, black, and white-striped outfit.

According to Rihanna Daily, the singer has canceled her concert in Stockholm tonight due to exhaustion. “It does not involve any serious illness,” said Live Nation spokesman Kristofer Akesson. “Like last Monday, Rihanna is too exhausted to perform a concert.”

This Week's X Factor Drama Is Brought By RACISM

X Factor 2011 race row: Derry speaks out on claims Kitty Brucknell racially abused him

X FACTOR hopeful Derry Mensah has been left shocked, hurt and “ill with stress” after allegedly being racially abused by rival Kitty Brucknell.

The 21-year-old singer with boyband The Risk claims Kitty called him an “evil black b******” – comments she vehemently denies making – after his singing woke her up.

Talking about the allegations for the first time, Derry told the Mirror yesterday: “She went nuts and just lost it. I am still in total shock at what she said. It was very hurtful.”

X Factor Kitty writes apology note

Kitty Brucknell has sent a letter of apology to her X Factor rival Derry Mensah following their argument - but denied making racist remarks.

Derry, 21, from boyband The Risk, complained to show bosses after the pair got into an argument, saying he thought Kitty, 26, called him an "evil black b******".

A source said: "She apologised for the argument. But she has denied calling him anything. The matter has been investigated and it's been resolved."

Jersey Shore is fake? Surely you jest!

Here's the video breakdown of the Snooki and Deena's ice fight encounter. You can skip the first segment and get right to the Jersey Shore action, which starts just after 20 seconds.

Host and comedian Sean Klitzner is a (not so) serious Jersey Shore fan, so he was loath to share the flub he found in Jersey Shore season 4, episode 11, "Situation Problems," which aired Oct. 13.

In the clip that's been broken down (below), Snooki and Deena are already angry after a bunch of Italian guys at the Central Park bar got too close to them on the dance floor. Anger turns to fury when a bartender throws ice cubes at them, and Snooki and Deena proceed to "trash" the place, breaking the bottles lined up on the bar.

Clearly, Florence, Italy was wise to set up parameters for the Jersey Shore visit!

Klitzner cries fowl over this Italian scene, however, claiming the bar brawl is completely fake. The video breaks it down visually, but here are the main components of the argument:

1 – A producer threw the ice, not the bartender: The key to this argument is that the ice comes from the wrong direction, with the camera catching a glimpse of a woman wearing an ear piece. In the slow motion replay, you can even see that woman, presumably a producer, retracting her arm after the ice throw.

2 – The bar was set up for the Snooki attack: Although it's a hopping club, there's no one actually standing at the bar where the showdown happens. In addition, Snooki isn't knocking down expensive bottles of booze. The bar is lined with cheap cocktail mixers.

Lauren Conrad did not get married and divorced in 72 days

She did wear two adorable Halloween costumes though.

The first costume she wore to Glee star Matt Morrisons’s Halloween party which also doubled as a gathering for every suspected young gay actor in Hollywood . You probably can’t guess who her costume is supposed to be since this pop singer is virtually unknown and rarely gets posted about on ONTD.

The Minnie Mouse costume was worn to Maroon 5’s party on Halloween night. She made it from scratch from fabric she showed fans a few weeks ago on her website.The mouse ears are made from her own hair.


I hope everyone had a very happy (and safe) Halloween! I went to a couple parties over the weekend, so I had two different costumes this year. The first costume I wore is an oldie but goodie: Britney Spears from the “Baby One More Time” music video. It was actually a really fun costume to wear since it was comfortable and very recognizable.

As for last night, I dressed up as Minnie Mouse! (Many of you guessed it when I posted my Halloween Hint.) I made the costume from scratch and am really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

Elijah Wood Toplining 'Maniac' Remake?

Bloody Disgusting is exclusively being told that Nora Arnezeder (Safe House) and Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings) have been cast as "Anna" and "Frank" in Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, Mirrors, High Tension) and producing/writing partner Grégory Levasseur's remake of William Lustig's classic 1980 slasher Maniac.

As previously reported, Aja and Levasseur will be reteaming with P2 helmer Franck Khalfoun. Khalfoun will be directing from a screenplay by Aja and Levasseur.

In the original film, "a schizoid serial killer randomly stalks and kills various young women in New York, which he sees as revenge for the mistreatment he got while being raised by his own abusive mother."


Most obvious blind item ever: "That bitch destroyed my career!"

This diva had a little too much to drink at a recent Halloween party. She was fine until someone brought up the name of another female artist. Our diva began mocking her rival. When someone made the mistake of coming to the rival’s defense, our diva went ballistic, and started screaming at them: “That bitch destroyed my career! Don’t you ever, EVER mention her name in front of me again!” The defender backed off, and everyone else gave the diva a wide berth for the rest of the evening.

keira knightley talks skype, booze, art & the most divisive performance of her career

Before speaking with Keira Knightley about her new movie A Dangerous Method, I took another glance over her lengthy list of previous roles. She's really done a little of everything—action (The Pirates Trilogy), comedy (Bend It Like Beckham), romance (Pride and Prejudice), sci-fi (Never Let Me Go) and a few projects that are nearly unclassifiable (The Jacket). Not surprising, considering she's one of the most versatile, in-demand actresses working today. The real shocking part? She's only twenty-six.

With so much of her career ahead of her, it's no wonder why Knightley is branching out, starring in one of the truly daring films of 2011. In Method, the actress co-stars as Sabina Spielrein, a young girl stricken by dementia who finds a cure through her own budding interest in psychoanalytics. Her doctor and mentor is the famed Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), who helps her overcome her physical and mental issues through correspondence with his own colleague, Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). Jung and Spielrein's relationship complicates when their work evolves into a lustful romance.

It's International Sandwich Day!

November 3 marks International Sandwich Day! Yes, we know what you're thinking: it's a big old marketing ploy concocted by the sinister Condiment-Industrial Complex to shift a few jars of pickle. But no. We think of it as a time for celebration and, next to 'Move Like A Ninja Day' and 'Hug A Hippo Day', it's one of our favourite little-known days of the year.

The main criterion for treasuring ISD is that unlike, say, 'Talk Like A Pirate Day', it doesn't involve doing anything you probably wouldn't be doing anyway (ie eating a tasty sandwich) - although admittedly since they merged 'Talk Like A Pirate Day' with 'Talk A Bit Like You're From The West Country Day', that one got pretty straightforward too.

So how to celebrate? Well, as keen Empire webchatters will know, we've all been confusing delighting Hollywood stars with seemingly random enquiries into their favourite bread spreads for some time now. We don't know why it started exactly, except that they're at lunchtime and everyone's hungry. We'd also like to think it's because movies are filled to the basket brim with delicious bun fun. Look at Harry and Sally tucking into a pair of pastrami classics in Katz Deli (and don't forget that he loves the way she takes "an hour and a half to order a sandwich") and Gary Busey's fierce devotion to meatball sandwiches in Point Break. Then there's Polanski's The Ghost - half the film (literally) without the sandwich metaphors - or, more ickily, Tom Cruise's encounter with a six-month old BLT in Minority Report. The 'B' almost certainly standing for 'botulism'.

So here for fans of the humble - and not so humble - sandwich, whether white, wholemeal or seeded, is a menu of Hollywood's orders.

Plot Details for Terrence Malick's Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams film

What in the name of grace and nature has gotten into Terrence Malick recently? With the announcement yesterday of two new projects both starring Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett—“Lawless,” also with Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara, and “Knight of Cups” with Isabel Lucas—it means that the reclusive auteur looks likely to make more films in the space of this decade than he did in the previous 35 put together. Of course, he unveiled “The Tree of Life” this year, and has the IMAX documentary “Voyage of Time” reportedly still in the works, not to mention his rumored involvement with “Green Lantern 2.” Okay, that we just made up.

But there’s one more that shouldn’t be forgotten, considering that Malick already has it in the can—the untitled romantic drama, also referred to as “The Burial.” The film shot at the end of 2010—plus reshoots in Paris this spring—with a cast including Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel Weisz, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and Jessica Chastain—but solid plot details have, as is usually the case with Malick’s projects, been thin on the ground. However, 24 Frames have a few updates on the project, including a logline that gels with a gossipy, spoilery report that surfaced on The Wrap late last year.

The LA Times blog says that the film “concerns a philanderer (Affleck) who, feeling at loose ends, travels to Paris, where he enters a hot-and-heavy affair with a European woman (Kurylenko). Said Lothario returns home to Oklahoma, where he marries the European woman (in part for visa reasons). When the relationship founders, he rekindles a romance with a hometown girl (McAdams) with whom he’s had a long history.” As set photos last year confirmed, Bardem plays a priest in the picture that Affleck’s character visits for advice. Supposedly the contemporary set film—the first in Malick’s career—is set to retain the director’s trademark distinctive visuals, while also being perhaps more commercial and upbeat than, say “The Tree of Life.” (I thought this film was supposedly even more experimental?) But then, you never know with Malick, do you.

There’s plenty of mysteries left on this one, however. For example, it emerged this week that Michael Sheen and Amanda Peet both have small roles in the film; how do they figure into the picture? Is it really called “The Burial?” How do Rachel Weisz’s $100 protein bars fit in? (And Jessica Chastain too!) And, perhaps most importantly, when will we end up seeing the thing? Malick wrote in a statement earlier in the year that the film was “rushing towards a mix,” which sounds positive, and StudioCanal (then Optimum) bought the U.K. rights, planning a 2012 release for the film.

But with Malick shooting two films in 2012, if the film isn’t ready before he gets his next one underway, we could end up facing a wait as long as the one for “The Tree of Life,” particularly as the director has supposedly refused to sell the film to a U.S. distributor so far. But then, Malick does seem to have a new fire in his belly, so it’s conceivable that the movie could be close to completion. Is another return to trip to Cannes next spring in the works? Let’s hope so.
