Brandy is top vocalist of her generation

In a recent interview with Kempire Radio, JoJo praised R&B veteran Brandy for her gift, insisting she is a top vocalist of her generation. “To deny Brandy’s influence would be a lie and foolish,” says JoJo. “I mean Brandy is one of the most incredible vocalists of this generation.”

The “Disaster” singer says she didn’t grow up listening to the “I Wanna Be Down” hitmaker but adds that she has a lot of respect for her craft.

“But did I grow up studying and listening to her in that way? Honestly no,” she says. “But did I always respect her talent? A thousand percent. To run into her, every time we see each other, there’s so much love, so much respect and her gift is undeniable.”


Poor Thang: Rihanna Boo’ed In London

Sounds like someone needs to get her life together:

Rihanna left fans angry after she came on stage an hour late in London last night (December 1). The singer was due to begin her ‘Loud’ tour show at The O2 arena at 9pm, but fans were stood waiting until 10pm before the star began her setlist. An angry concert-goer told Digital Spy: “She didn’t come on till 10, leaving the audience waiting an hour. She then got booed and her singing was rubbish.

“The show was unnecessarily raunchy and inappropriate. When we left halfway through the show, along with loads of other people, staff were handing out information on making complaints.” The 23-year-old was jeered over a similar situation at The O2 last month, when she left her audience waiting 55 minutes before starting her show.

Recent reports have suggested that Rihanna is currently on 24-hour health watch after suffering from “exhaustion and stress”.

Man, perhaps RihRih needs to take BeyBey’s advice and fall the f**k back for a little bit.


Kris Allen Performs "Imagine" at Trevor Live, New Single Will Be Out In 2012!

Kris Allen fans, expect his new single in the first quarter of the new year!

That's what His Royal Highness, the King Joe Riccitelli the Great, the head of the promotions machine at SONY'S RCA LABEL GROUP told American radio presenter Toby Knapp during an online chat this afternoon.

"He's cutting (recording) now, looking for single first quarter," said Riccitell in an AIM conversation with Knapp this afternoon. "I love me some Kris."

Some of Allen's new - unreleased music - was played for US radio programmers at a music summit earlier this year. That music, which is, according to Riccitelli, on the new CD, is just some of what the Idol's been working on. Riccitelli hinted that they're going to come with music that is even better than what's been heard so far.

Knapp asked if the label is still committed to Allen as an artist at at time when some Idols - and others - are being dropped by their label homes for whatever reason.

"Yep," said Riccitelli, indicating that Allen is still very much in the label's long term plans.

The Idol winner performed John Lennon's classic "Imagine" at the Trevor Live concert Sunday night, to benefit the Trevor Project.

Angelina Jolie sued for copyright infringement over her directorial debut

    In the Land of Blood and Honey is Angelina Jolie’s directorial/screenwriting debut. Unfortunately it’s also cast her in another new role: defendant. On Dec. 2, papers were filed in Illinois suing Jolie and the producers of the film for copyright infringement. James J. Braddock, a Croatian journalist, maintains that the movie - due in theaters Dec. 23 - takes its plot from his book, The Soul Shattering, which was published in 2007. The lawsuit maintains that Braddock met with co-defendant Edin Sarkic (a producer on the film) three different times in 2008 and that The Soul Shattering and the finished film share the following similarities

RTD's Partner Has Brain Cancer

Russell T Davies, the writer who brought Doctor Who back to TV, has put his career on hold indefinitely following his partner's diagnosis with brain cancer.

He and Andrew Smith have left their base in Los Angeles and returned to their former home in Manchester.

Mr Smith has already had surgery and faces months of chemotherapy.

Mr Davies had been working on a new series called Cucumber, a BBC Worldwide and US network collaboration.

The Swansea-born writer told the TV companies had both been accommodating and sympathetic to his situation.

He said the couple's life in LA had "closed down overnight" following the diagnosis, which came after Smith complained of severe headaches.

"When we got the results they told us he had cancer of the brain," he said.

"They needed to operate straightaway. Three days later he was having surgery.

Desperaty Perry Really Wants That Sixth No. 1

Guess who's single was just discounted to $.69 on iTunes? Here's a hint: it's not Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 7.

Yep, it's none other than Katy Perry, still gunning for that sixth No. 1 from her "Teenage Dream" so she can break her tie with Michael Jackson for the most No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles from one album. Her latest effort, "The One That Got Away," jumped into the Top 10 after a performance on last month's American Music Awards, but has only managed to move up to No. 9 since. It looks like Perry and her team aren't taking any chances with this one, recycling a successful formula: she tied Jackson's record for five No. 1 singles from one album the week after a $.69 Missy Elliott featured-remix of "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)" hit iTunes.

Frank Lloyd Wright Biopic To Be Directed By Bruce Beresford

Bruce Beresford used to be one of the most prolific directors around, making films like Driving Miss DaisyBreaker Morant, and Tender Mercies year after year. In the 1980s and 1990s he averaged almost a film per year. In the last decade, however, he's slowed down considerably. In fact, since 2000 he's only directed five films, the most recent being this year's Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Elizabeth Olsen. But just because his production has slowed doesn't mean that he's done directing, as evidenced by the new project that he just picked up. 

THR has learned that Beresford is now attached to direct Taliesin, a biopic about world famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The script was written by Nicholas Meyer (The Prince of EgyptElegy) and the project will be produced by J. Todd Harris and Ed Bachrach, who are currently raising funds. The title of the film comes from the name of Wright's home in Spring Green, Wisconsin, where many of the most important scenes of the film take place. In 1914, Martha "Mamah" Cheney, Wright's wife, her two children, and four others were murdered by a domestic worker named Julian Carlton, who locked them all inside the building and set it on fire. Talking about the project, Beresford said, "It’s a very good script. It doesn’t cover his whole life, just a small section of it, and it doesn’t whitewash him into some sort of saint." 

It's a pretty horrific story, but I'm curious if the film will only deal with that section of his life or go a little broader. After all, the man did build some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the 20th century and it would be a shame to ignore that. Too bad drafting blueprints for a house isn't more dramatic.

Bradley Cooper concedes the sexiest man alive title to Ryan Gosling and talks about The Hangover 3

Congratulations, Ryan Gosling fanatics fans. Your work is done.

Your backlash to Bradley Cooper's Sexiest Man Alive pronouncement was swift and so widespread that it did indeed make its way back to the Hangover star.

And the most shocking thing is: He hasn't just heard your plight, he agrees with it.

While appearing on BBC's Graham Norton Show in London over the weekend, the subject of his magazine accolade cropped up and Cooper wasted no time in acknowledging that his reign wasn't without its controversy.

"I'm finally at an age—I'm 36 years old—where I finally don't care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing. And then this happened, and I started to realize how not sexy I am," he began.

"I swear to God. I'll have a lot of moments where I'll be walking out, and I'll open up the door and go, 'I could've done that a lot sexier. That was not very sexy.'"

And the fan movement to strip Cooper of his title and seat Gosling in his stead did nothing to help the poor gorgeous movie star's confidence.

"There was such a backlash to when they announced it, and Ryan Gosling—who I love, and I just did a movie with him, he's the greatest—but we were both in Paris this last week and a friend of mine showed me, there was photographs from paparazzi...and when I say 'friend,' I mean me, alone in my room looking at the computer.

"And it was of him walking around, and he literally looks like he's in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. With, like, the peacoat, is like this," he said, mimicking an upturned collar, "with the scarf, and there's ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor that never comes out of his house and when he does it makes you go, like, maybe he should just stay in.

"So it's interesting."

Awww, Bradley! In any case, just as interesting was Cooper's dishing on some Hangover 3 details, telling Norton that the next installment is already on its way.

"I personally want to do it," he said. "I hope we're gonna start shooting in September. Todd Phillips is working on the script…I think it'll take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different."

One thing's for sure: It'll definitely be huge. Still, the studio might want to make sure Gosling doesn't have a movie coming out the same weekend.

H&M Uses Fake Bodies With Real Heads For Models

Bolded for the lazy.

All that griping about how models' slender proportions are completely unrealistic? Turns out they are literally unrealistic -- as in, they are totally fake.

H&M has been sticking real models' heads on computer-generated bodies, reveals Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet (no, we don't usually read Swedish tabloids -- Jezebel tipped us off).

The head-body disconnect was first noticed in Norway via Bildbluffen ("Photo Bluff"), a site that identifies when photos have been doctored. But once they pointed out that a bunch of lingerie product shots from H&M's Christmas campaign featured fake bodies with real heads, we started to notice it ourselves (see below).

Luckily, H&M has fessed up. The company's press officer Hacan Andersson told Aftonbladet, "It's not a real body, it is completely virtual and made ​​the computer. We take pictures of the clothes on a doll [mannequin] that stands in the shop, and then create the human appearance with a program on your computer."

While this doesn't seem to apply to the ad campaigns featuring, say, Karen Elson and Abbey Lee Kershaw, it does happen with the models on H&M's e-commerce site.

The point seems to be that real bodies would be totally distracting for shoppers looking at product shots. "We do this to show off the clothes," says Andersson.

Not so fast, H&M. Aftonbladet writes that the model fake-out is actually occurring because H&M is simply not satisfied with the slew of models coming through its doors. Commented Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's Helle Vaagland:

"This illustrates very well the sky-high aesthetic demands placed on the female body. The demands are so great that H&M, among the poor photo models, cannot find someone with both body and face that can sell their bikinis."

Oy. So now we have fake, computer-generated models to make us feel bad about our bodies? This is an uphill battle, ladies -- and just another sign that models should not be looked to as examples of ideal physiques.

Check out the product shots below -- can you see tell that there's a fake body attached to those real heads?

Top 5 TV comedies that figured it out

As with every new year of television, the weakest shows that cost the most money are often cancelled after airing a handful of episodes. For example: this season, we’ve already seen The Playboy Club get shuttered, among others. TV shows are often about the ensemble, and most of their casts need time to work together to see how their chemistry develops over longer stretches of time. With comedies, that energy and chemistry is pivotal, and with so many shows put together through high-concepts or based around a name talent, everyone needs to find their footing. With that in mind, here are five shows that started rocky, and became brilliant.

HMV lists Amelia Lily 'X Factor' 2011 Winner's Single for pre-order

Music retailer HMV temporarily put up Amelia Lily's X Factor 2011 Winner's Single for pre-order today.

The X Factor final takes place this weekend, and Lily is still competing against girlband Little Mix and singer Marcus Collins, whose Winner's Singles were not listed for pre-order at the same time.

In a statement to The X Factor, HMV said: "It's just come to light that there was a technical issue uploading details of two of the artists to our site, which meant that only Amelia Lily's details appeared.

"However, these have been temporarily removed so that all three finalists' details will go up simultaneously tomorrow morning. Once up, fans will be able to pre-order the single by their preferred finalist but only orders for the eventual Winner's Single will be processed and charged for."

The retailer concluded: "This was due to an unforeseen technical issue, and nothing further should be construed from it."

Lily was eliminated by her mentor Kelly Rowland in week one of this year's live shows.

She was voted back in by viewers ahead of Jonjo Kerr, 2 Shoes and James Michael to replace Frankie Cocozza, who left the show amid reports he had taken drugs during his stint in the competition.

Veteran judge Louis Walsh has tipped Lily to win the competition, while eliminated act Kitty Brucknell has suggested that the 17-year-old's return was "not fair".

Republican New Jersey Mayor Caught Up In ‘Rentboy’ Scandal

Medford City Councilman and Mayor Chris Myers, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2008 against Democrat John Adler, is accused of paying the man $500 for sex during a trip to California in October 2010.

Danielle Camilli of the Burlington County Times reports that a man sent the paper a series of e-mails alleging that Myers agreed to pay him for sex, and promised him a car and a recording studio after the encounter at the Fairmount Hotel in Newport Beach, CA. The man said that Myers said he was a mayor from New Jersey, and showed him identification.

Finding Nemo Director Says Girls Won't See A Movie With 'Mars' In The Title

Andrew Stanton Explains 'John Carter' Name Change, Says Girls Won't See A Movie With 'Mars' In The Title

Many fanboys and literary fanatics became ruffled when Disney (and director Andrew Stanton) changed the name of this spring's Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation "John Carter of Mars" to simply, "John Carter." Apparently Stanton was in London to screen 20 minutes of footage from the hotly anticipated film and during the presentation he explained to assorted journalists (including someone from Bleeding Cool) why it had undergone a surgical title snip. And, well, it's not exactly going to silence those that feel Pixar (which was unofficially involved in "John Carter") is a boys club.
"Here’s the real truth of it. I’d already changed it from 'A Princess Of Mars' to 'John Carter Of Mars.' I don’t like to get fixated on it, but I changed 'Princess Of Mars'… because not a single boy would go," Stanton told the journalists.

Keep in mind that Pixar, the studio where Stanton wrote and directed "Finding Nemo" and "WALL-E" (and where he serves as part of the secretive, highly influential Brain Trust), has been loudly criticized for its perceived lack of interest in telling stories with strong female characters (or really, any female characters at all). The studio came under fire again when they fired Brenda Chapman, who was set to be the studio's first female director (on next summer's "Brave"), severing her ties with a highly personal project (and, indeed, forcing her out of the studio, including her own position on the Brain Trust, completely). Disney is trying to claim that Pixar had very little to do with "John Carter" but from what we understand it was conceptualized and developed almost wholly at Pixar (and when selected journalists were invited to preview footage out of the editing bay earlier this year, well, they didn't go to Disney, they went to Pixar). Basically, if you called "John Carter" "Pixar's first live action film," you wouldn't exactly be wrong.

This title change, and the reasoning behind it, especially put into the terms Stanton uses, sounds like the big money equivalent of "ewww girls are icky," but Stanton tries to put on a brave face. With a move from "Princess of Mars" to "John Carter of Mars," well, apparently that still sounded too manly for little girls who can't handle things associated with the red planet (or the Roman god of war) and presumably only want to play with dolls and wear pink bows in their hair.

"And then the other truth is, no girl would go to see [a movie called] 'John Carter Of Mars'. So I said, 'I don’t want to do anything out of fear, I hate doing things out of fear, but I can’t ignore that truth,'" Stanton explained at the London presentation. We wonder if he's referring to "Mars Needs Moms" too, since that was a costly animated flop for Disney earlier this year (one that effectively ended their relationship with Robert Zemeckis and his ImageMovers Digital company).
While the move was clearly a nakedly commercial one, he also dug down and tried to explain it away thematically, "All the time we were making this big character story which just so happens to be in this big, spectacular new environment. But it’s not about the spectacle, it’s about the investment. I thought, I’ve really worked hard to make all of this an origin story. It’s about a guy becoming John Carter. So I’m not misrepresenting what this movie is, it’s 'John Carter.'" Right.

If there are more films (and, given the amount of cash Disney has sunk into this sci-fi money pit, that's a pretty big IF), Stanton promises that "of Mars" will be part of the title. "Mars is going to stick on any other film in the series. But by then, it won’t have a stigma to it." Andrew Stanton - clearing Mars' good name! Well we can all get a good look at the Mars-less "John Carter" when it opens March 9th, 2012. Get your ass to Mars!

Madonna the latest name on washed-up entertainer list

The headline Monday at Entertainment Weekly declared: “It’s official: Madonna to perform at Super Bowl halftime show.”

It could have just as easily read: “It’s official: Madonna all washed up.”

As someone who can’t quite keep up with popular culture, I have long relied on the choice of the Super Bowl halftime performer to let me know when someone has officially become a has-been.

What’s that line from the 4G phone commercials: “That’s so 15 seconds ago?”

Being chosen to perform at the Super Bowl is proof positive that an act is “so 15 years ago.”

Most of you probably already knew that Madonna was washed up, and I admit that even I suspected it before Monday’s big announcement.

When Lady Gaga started doing Madonna better than Madonna, it was pretty obvious that time had passed her by.

The beauty launched the reality TV competition show in 2003 and has since developed a reputation as a confident and sassy pioneer in the modelling industry, but Banks insists it's all an act for the cameras - because she's shy and insecure in real life.

Speaking during CNN's U.S. TV special Dinner with the Kings, which aired on Sunday (04Dec11), she said, "When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on Top Model. And it's a character. So when I'm sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I'm like, 'Your picture's not fierce...' talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character.

"I don't do that, like, in real life; I'm passive aggressive. I'm anti-confrontational; I'm even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational.

"So it's a character, but people think it's real. I'm so not sexy. I know how to turn it on for a picture but I'm not sexy in real life."

Alec Baldwin gets "reamed out" for playing words with friends on plane

Alec Baldwin claims an American Airlines flight attendant WENT BALLISTIC on him on a plane at LAX moments ago ... all because he was playing "Words with Friends" while the aircraft was still at the gate.

Baldwin just tweeted about the situation ... saying, "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."

It's unclear if Baldwin was removed from the plane or left voluntarily -- but he DID get off the plane and was moved to another flight.

FYI -- "Words with Friends" is basically Scrabble for your smart phone ... and it's SUPER addicting.

more info:
Former president and COO of MTV Networks Michael J. Wolf set Twitter atwitter after he tweeted about an hour ago from aboard an American Airlines flight en route to LAX that actor and fellow passenger Alec Baldwin had just been removed the plane.

This was later confirmed by business coach Grant Cardone, who added that Baldwin was kicked off for “abusive conduct.”

Oy. ILU gurl but you are like old now, stop trying to be so hardcore. Also thanks to blabbermouth's shittacular journalism I went to google to see if indeed his tattoo was missing a letter. It depends really, EVVK is 'I couldn't care less' while EVVVK is 'I couldn't fucking care less'. So his tattoo is missing the 'fucking part', which seems strange since it's his favorite thing to say besides 'you know'.

a look inside the long island serial killer

Whether you have been following the continuing Long Island multiple-murder case closely or only somewhat, the bluntly titled documentary “The Long Island Serial Killer,” Monday night on A&E, will hold a grim fascination.

It’s not just the crimes and the slowly evolving realization of the scope of them — 10 bodies so far — that grab the attention. It’s the interviews with parents, siblings and boyfriends, many of whom seem jarringly resigned to the sex-trade business that sent most of the victims to their deaths.

“I knew that she was doing more than dancing,” says Lorraine Ela, mother of Megan Waterman, one victim, “but I gave her the benefit of the doubt.”

Jesse James Takes Cheap Swipe at Sandra Bullock on TV


Jesse James returned to the airwaves on Monday, appearing on the biker show, “American Chopper: The Build-Off,” and it didn’t take him long to once again behave like a jerk.

While apologizing for not remaining in touch with fans, James said, “I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn’t talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad.”

“Some Hollywood actress”?

James, of course, is rudely referring to his ex-wife, Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock, who he repeatedly cheated on with other women, including Michelle “Bombshell” McGee.

He added, “I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show ‘em that I’m still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I’m not what I became.”

This phrase has us scratching our heads a little because he was a cheater, and then after his on-and-off engagements to Kat Von D, it emerged that he still is a cheater, who allegedly slept with at least 19 women while with the tattoo artist.

What do you think of James’ remarks?

Swimsuit Model Gets Called ‘Fat’ for Gaining Weight

Australian bikini model Lara Bingle is the latest entry in the ‘Models Who Are Labelled ‘Fat” club. The reason? 24 year-old Lara recently put on 6 kg / 13 pounds. Here’s how she defends herself against critics (in the appropriately titled "Who?" magazine): 
You can never win. It is unfortunate that I’m their topic of being fat this week; maybe in a few weeks I will be too thin. I’ve never been that thin thin girl, I have curves, boobs and an arse, that’s my job, I’m a swimwear model. I don’t not eat. I love my food.
I have put on weight. So I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t. But I’m really happy right now and I’m working and that’s what I love. I like having boobs and a bum: I don’t want to look like a bony boy with no hips.
If I’m fat, how does that make a girl who is a size 12-14 feel, and that’s the size of an average Australian woman? It’s ridiculous.
… says Lara.

Gaga already working on her next masterpiece!

Lady Gaga is perhaps the busiest monster of them all. Just six months after dropping her chart-topping Born This Way, the Mother Monster is already hard at work on its follow-up.

"I've started writing it and I have the name for it and all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place," she told MTV News at Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, where she also talked about her Grammy nods and "Marry the Night" video. "I'm excited to put it out, but it's not done yet. So I'll put it out when it's done."

BTW contributor Fernando Garibay recently stopped by the MTV News offices in Santa Monica, California, and shared the vision he has in mind for Gaga's next release.

"I get a little bit of anxiety thinking about that right now," the producer said of plans for the album. "I wanna just always try to outdo ourselves, our songs.

"They're already incredible songs. But I feel like she's so young," he said, adding that the record is in its early stages and that "there's a lot of room to grow."

While Gaga will hit the road on the Born This Way Tour next year, Garibay said that won't halt the recording process. "The last record we made in bus stops and hotel rooms," he said. "Wherever she's at, we'll make it."

However the recording schedule pans out, Garibay knows he and Gaga will continue experimenting with new sounds. "She's the perfect platform for me to express myself," he said. "You can do stuff with her that you can't do with anybody else. It's amazing."


based on when she announced born this guessing we'll be seeing this in 2013, qt.

nostalgia sucks

The opening credits sequence of Dec. 9′s Young Adult is suffused with ’90s nostalgia. Charlize Theron plays a writer of a young-adult literary franchise that sounds quite a bit like Sweet Valley High. She finds a mix tape created for her by her high school boyfriend — and is there anything that more precisely defines everything we are supposed to love about the pre-digital era than The Mix Tape? Because she apparently lives in a bizarro universe, Theron’s car still has a tape deck. So she puts in the mix tape and starts singing along to Teenage Fanclub’s “The Concept,” which I’m sure is a song beloved by anyone who was precisely 17 in October 1991. While the credits roll, the camera fetishistically zooms into the cassette, the tape going round and round and round. It feels a little bit like we’re being set up for an extended trip down memory lane to Nostalgia Town, with a brief stopover in Twee Village and a hearty lunch at the Gosh-Wasn’t-Generation-X-Secretly-AWESOME Café. But as the credits continue, Theron continues rewinding the tape to the beginning, and listening to “The Concept,” and rewinding and listening, rewinding and listening. It’s no longer a nostalgic vision; it’s a vision of nostalgia steadily approaching madness.

Now, nostalgia isn’t a bad thing. Oh wait, actually, strike that: Nostalgia is a horrible thing. Rooted in the rose-colored remembrance of a time long gone by, nostalgia blinds us to the truth, the factuality, the actual thingness of a thing in favor of our frail perception of how much fun we used to have with that thing. But it’s only human to look back in longing to a time that seems less complicated (and more fun) than the present. It’s especially understandable now, in this cruel modern era, when our country has had to weather a decade of terrorism, war, psychotically divisive politics, and the slow-but-steady of the global economy. By comparison, the 1990s can’t help but look like a glowing wonderland of peace and prosperity: A time before strife, before reality TV, before Auto-Tune, before Michael Bay really became terrible.

'Teen Wolf' Exclusive: Season 2 Secrets Revealed!

Below, 5 interesting tidbits about the next season of "Teen Wolf."

1. The first episode will be called "Omega."

2. You will eventually learn what the Triskele tattoo on Derek's back means.

3. The second episode revolves around the new full moon.

4. Lydia will no longer hide her extraordinary intelligence.

5. Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Colton Haynes, Holland Roden and Crystal Reed all spent weeks with personal trainers to get into prime physical shape for the shooting of Season 2. Dylan O'Brien ate pizza and somehow still remained skinny.

Lindsay Lohan gets her hair did/ NOT appearing on Celeb Big Brother

Lindsay Lohan has managed to stay out of the spotlight after her most recent appearance in court, which is why we were so surprised to catch a glimpse of her coming out of the Ken Paves Salon Monday evening in Los Angeles, CA.

The troubled actress, who is currently undergoing court-ordered community service at an area morgue, looked pretty awesome as she left the salon, donning a nude blouse, tan pumps, brown cords and a matching hat. LiLo’s hair, meanwhile, stayed blond, with a hint of retro ’70s flair.

Sienna Miller To Play Tippi Hedren In 'The Girl'

BBC Two's upcoming docudrama The Girl chronicles director Alfred Hitchcock's obsessive relationship with his The Birds star Tippi Hedren. A few months ago there was one pair of names attached to star as Hitch and Hedren (January Jones!), but times have changed, and now we have two new names - Toby Jones and Sienna Miller, respectively.

According to BBC Two Hedren has cooperated by giving interviews to writer Gwyneth Hughes, while Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto is attached as a consultant. Becoming Jane’s Julian Jarrold is directing with Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton also in the cast. Filming starts this week in South Africa.

Hitchcock was at the height of his fame and creativity when, in 1962, he chose an unknown fashion model to star in his most ambitious film — The Birds. But as he sculpted Hedren into the perfect Hitchcock blonde of his imagination, he became obsessed with the impossible dream of winning the real woman’s love. His failure arguably destroyed both of their careers. In a statement Hughes said: “It’s been the most enormous privilege to talk at length to Tippi Hedren, the last ‘Hitchcock blonde’ in the life of Britain’s most original and successful film director. At the time, in the early 1960s, the American star suffered in silence. But now, at the age of 81, her wisdom and insights have helped me to put her real life ordeal on to the screen.”

Second Harry Potter theme park to be built in LA; Orlando park expanding

Universal Studios/Parks and Warner Bros announced that the second Wizarding World of Harry Potter will open at Universal Studios Hollywood, AND the park in Orlando will expand in the coming years. James and Oliver Phelps assisted in the unveiling at USH today.

The rumours around the Orlando expansion include a possible London/Diagon Alley/Gringotts/King's Cross/working Hogwarts Express ride, taking over the closing Jaws ride at Universal Studios.

A big congrats to our friends at Universal Studios Hollywood who officially announced earlier today that in partnership with Warner Bros. Entertainment, they’re bringing The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to Hollywood! The new fully immersive environment will bring the stories of Harry Potter to life at USH & feature the majestic Hogwarts castle as its centerpiece.

BUT WAIT, there’s even more great news! We’re excited to announce that we’ll be significantly expanding The Wizarding World of Harry Potter here in Orlando... more details to come later.

"I am delighted that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been so popular with fans since the opening in Orlando last year and I am sure that the teams at Universal and Warner Bros. will bring their expertise and attention to detail to Hollywood to make this new experience equally as exciting," said J.K. Rowling.

Zachary Quinto


Though she was confirmed by Marvel Studios as the film's director back in October, Deadline reports that Patty Jenkins has departed  Thor 2. The search is now on for a replacement.

Patty Jenkins previously directed Monster starring Charlize Theron, who won an Academy Award for her performance in the film. Jenkins, who received an Emmy nomination for directing the pilot of AMC's acclaimed series "The Killing," has also directed episodes of "Entourage" and "Arrested Development." Most recently, she directed "Pearl," one of the five short films that comprise Lifetime's original movie "Five."

The original article cites "creative differences" as the reason for Jenkins' departure, suggesting that the split is amicable and that she might return for a superhero non-sequel in the near future.

With a release date planned for November 15th, 2013, a new director is expected to be announced soon.

Television Shows Loved (And Hated) By Reps and Dems

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Republicans don’t watch MTV’s Jersey Shore. But they dig ABC’s Castle.
Democrats don’t like Discovery’s Deadliest Catch. But they swoon for NBC’s Parks and Recreation.

Those are a few of the findings from an annual research survey by Experian-Simmons that measures the consumer preferences of various political ideologies.

In a report prepared exclusively for EW, the company calculated some of the favorite — and least favorite — TV shows of political partisans. (Specifically: the report measures which shows among the survey group were watched by the highest concentration of self-identified “Liberal Democrats” and “Conservative Republicans.”)

In the findings, “sarcastic” media-savvy comedies and morally murky antiheroes tend to draw Dems. While serious work-centered shows (both reality shows and stylized scripted procedurals), along with reality competitions, tend to draw conservatives.

Focusing on well-known cable and broadcast original entertainment series (rather than, say, sports, music, news, repeats), here’s who wins the 2011 prime-time primaries:

Adam Lambert & Christina Aguilera Meet --- Finally!

Last night Adam Lambert and Christina Aguilera had a chance meeting at a bar in Los Angeles. Fans first got wind of the superstar encounter when another patron at the bar tweeted about seeing them there. But without photographic evidence, it wasn't confirmed until Adam himself tweeted today, "Randomly met @TheRealXtina for the first time last night. She was lovely. #alwaysafan."

The meeting of these two singers has been a long time coming, as Adam has spoken of his admiration of Christina for a while. For example, he has tweeted about her songs in the past, such as, "X-tina's WooHoo is hot! I'm dancing while driving! Shwerk!" He also once tweeted a video of Christina singing "Impossible" and commented, "dont forget... listen to her VOICE! DAMN!!! liiiiving!" Of course, you can't get praise any higher than what Adam tweeted about Chirstina's album Bionic: "Bionic: XTina's vocals take other pop girls to SCHOOL. Production is A+ I'm entertained! Nuff said."

Earlier this year there were rumors that Adam had recorded a duet with Christina, which were eventually debunked. It started with tweets from a radio DJ. The DJ had confused Adam Lambert's name with Adam Levine, who ultimately did record a duet with Christina. But Adam Lambert has said in interviews that he would love the opportunity to work with Christina. Maybe now that they have had a chance to chat, it could happen!

How do you feel about an Adam Lambert and Christina Aguilera duet?

Jesse James to Star in New TV Show on The Discovery Channel in 2012

Jesse James: Return of the outlaw biker By Susan Carpenter, Los Angeles Times
Jesse James had it all. The Hollywood A-list wife. A top-ranked cable-TV show. He'd built his Long Beach shop, West Coast Choppers, into an empire, wrenching custom $80,000-plus motorcycles for a celebrity clientele — an endeavor he spun off into a mass-market clothing line for Wal-Mart, a glossy gearhead magazine and an eco-friendly burger joint he hoped to franchise. That was early 2010. Two months later, he'd thrown it all away with a string of extramarital affairs that made James a household name for all the wrong reasons. "

Is the public ready to re-embrace the fallen star who had become the most hated man in America? The Discovery Channel thinks so, and so does James, who chalks up his indiscretions to being "miserable," he said in a Times interview. "I think people are tired of hearing about my personal life and ready to see me work again…. People have almost forgot that I am one of the best in the world at what I do."

Before his well-publicized affairs, James was the most famous name in modern motorcycling. A distant relative of the 19th century outlaw, he was a working-class aesthete whose welding skills and attention to detail elevated his handmade bikes to the height of artistry. A Long Beach native, he transformed his hard-knock upbringing into an enviable career as the star of Discovery's rip-it-apart-and-rebuild-it TV show "Monster Garage," where he met the celebrity that would later become his wife.

"I think I had to go through all the stuff I went through to find out what was really important. I'm a single dad to three kids, and that's 99% of my life. The other 1% is my work and creativity and being devoted to that," said the 42-year-old James, who says he isn't dating because "it's an energy sucker." He now lives on a ranch outside of Austin, Texas, having donated part of the West Coast Choppers complex to the Long Beach Rescue Mission.
