Nana is blowing these other ladies out of the water TBH. Not everyone can give it like she does in that ensemble. You know dramatic prints are so in right now--and look at that statement necklace! Gurl got her hair cape did, too. I just hope these other sluts don't mind when her dentures end up floating around in the hot tub after sexy time with Ben.

Whoopi Goldberg Graphically Discusses ‘Pudenda’ To Shocked View Audience

Whoopi Goldberg explicitly dished repeatedly on female “pudenda” in a graphic discussion on porn with the panelists of The View as audience members laughed nervously. “I like porn, I think porn is good for — yes, I do. I think it’s good,” Goldberg acknowledged. “I will tell you what bothers the hell out of me, because this is something that I should have watched over the years. When you see where porn stars are– the women, what their pudendas look like, you can track what other women are going to be doing… there used to be a time when a woman’s pudenda — they looked like women.

"Then suddenly it became like a landing strip, and then it became bald, and I’m saying what’s wrong with that is they made it what a young girl’s pudenda looks like…it’s bad because I understand you want to do some grooming, but to make yourself look like you did when you were 12 or 13 sends a message to people that you want a kid’s body.”

“I like Hitler’s moustache as a look,” Joy Behar provocatively quipped, referring to her nether regions, to stunned silence.

While body image obviously is an important subject matter for women, the shockingly frank talk about genitalia (and frequent use of the term pudenda) on network television perhaps went a little too far for many daytime viewers. ABC might want to consider airing a viewer discretion advised warning before such topics are discussed.

Kelly Osbourne's new gray hair debuts on Fox & Friends

Aesthetically pleasing hair colors are so last year — at least when it comes to Kelly Osbourne's ‘do!

The Fashion Police co-host stopped by Fox & Friends in NYC on Tuesday, and was sporting some gray hair, with some hints of a purple-ish pink. While we think the hair is a little questionable, KO’s outfit was adorbs, as she was rocking a cute LBD and trendy animal print jacket.

While Kell has flipped flopped from brown and blonde over the years, what do you think of this latest shade?

Scream Queen Neve Signs Deal with Lifetime Network

Neve Campbell, 38, will return to television. The Lifetime network is moving forward with a movie called Sworn to Silence, based on the book of the same name by Linda Castillo. This movie will serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential series.

It will star Campbell as a former member of an Amish community in Ohio who returns to her hometown to serve as its chief of police. She ends up leading a murder investigation that brings up painful memories of a series of brutal murders that happened in town when Campbell’s character was a child.

Campbell has also closed a deal with Lifetime to develop scripted dramas and original movies. “Growing our scripted programming remains a top priority for Lifetime and our longform strategy provides us with a strong stable from which to identify potential series,” said Nancy Dubuc, President and General Manager of Lifetime Networks, in a statement. “I’ve always admired Neve’s work. She is a proven talent who will bring a high level of intensity and presence to this role and Sworn to Silence.”

One Direction and JLS Form X Factor Supergroup

X FACTOR bosses are serving up a unique treat for this weekend's final – a SUPERGROUP of One Direction and JLS.

TV Biz can reveal that Britain's two biggest boy bands — sorry, Gary! — have been secretly working in the studio together on a "mash-up" of two of their biggest tunes.

1D and JLS — who both got their big breaks on X Factor — have been fusing their respective hits, What Makes You Beautiful and She Makes Me Wanna.

A show source said: "It's no secret that 1D and JLS have been booked for the final — but we're ratcheting things up a notch. The lads thought it would be a great idea if they all did a song together.

"Producers worked out that it would probably be best if they used their own songs.

"They were all locked down in a central London studio on Tuesday working on it.

"The songs go well together. It could change but that's where we are right now." The idea was inspired by JLS and Alexandra Burke's mash-up at the 2009 final, which Joe McElderry won.

Alex sang her hit Bad Boys along with JLS tune Everybody In Love in what was one of the highlights of the night.

An amazing 16 million-plus viewers are expected to tune in to the final weekend, which is being staged at Wembley Arena in front of 10,000 screaming fans.

Alec Baldwin Quits Twitter & Other Celebrities Who Have Quit Twitter

Alec Baldwin's having a social media moment on par with Ashton Kutcher's Jerry Sandusky Twitcident. On Tuesday, the "30 Rock" actor broke news on his Twitter feed that he had been removed from a flight for refusing to shut down his iPad while playing an apparently intense game of the mobile gaming app, Words With Friends.

After venting on the social network -- with dozens of news organizations picking up the story -- the actor faced paparazzi upon landing at JFK International Airport, where he was photographed on Tuesday night.

"What's a twelve letter word that is interchangeable for HARVEY LEVIN?" Baldwin wrote, referring both to the Scrabble-esque game that prompted the spat and the founder of celebrity gossip website TMZ.

And just one hour later, Baldwin apparently decided he was finished with media entirely, self-generated or not. "Let's play a game called Mass Unfollowing. I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10pm, NY time, unfollow me,"he wrote.

A rep for Baldwin confirmed to People that the actor has quit his Twitter account, now listed as "Deactivated," albeit temporarily: "It's just on hold while he focused on '30 Rock.'"

Glee casts Santana's brother, makes this OP question her love of the show

Santana (Naya Rivera) has an awfully talented family. EW already broke the news that the Glee character’s mother will be played by none other than Latin superstar Gloria Estefan,but now we can exclusively tell you who’s being wooed to play her brother — rapper Pitbull! Yep, our source tells us that producers are hoping to land the Give Me Everything”rapper to play Estefan’s son and Rivera’s big bro.

One other development is that Estefan and other buzzed-about Glee guest-star Ricky Martin will NO longer be appearing in the same episode. Martin will be getting his own episode in January while Estefan’s (and hopefully Pitbull’s) ep will air later this winter. The change was made so that there could be a giant family musical number in the Estefan episode.

And now for some scoop that Gleeks have been dying to hear: the show is beginning to cast for… RACHEL’S GAY DADS!!! Yep, it sounds like we will see the much-discussed-but-never-seen-duo by the end of season 3. I mean, they gotta be present for Rachel’s graduation day at the very least. Who do you think Glee producers should cast?


Stephen Colbert does Ballet, remains flawless

Ballet Meets Colbert in Unusual Pas de Deux

“I was worried; what if I can’t fire back?” David Hallberg said about his preshow jitters before appearing Wednesday night on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central. The dancer, the first American to join the Bolshoi Ballet on a full-time basis, shouldn’t have worried.

Despite Stephen Colbert’s accusations that Mr. Hallberg was “Benedict Arnold in slightly tighter pants,” the dancer gently reminded him that “the cold war’s over.” He went on to discuss his decision to leave the United States for Moscow to pursue his dreams in dance. “I love a challenge, I love risk,” Mr. Hallberg said. Mr. Colbert responded: “There’s nothing risky or challenging in the United States? Dance on fire. Do the ‘Firebird’ on fire.”

Though Mr. Hallberg held his own in the interview portion, the same could not quite be said for Mr. Colbert during the performance part of the show. Mr. Hallberg danced an excerpt from American Ballet Theater’s production of “The Nutcracker” with Hee Seo, a soloist with the company. Performing on flooring the show had installed for the dancers, Mr. Colbert, in his suit jacket and black tights and ballet slippers, soon joined in — mimicking Mr. Hallberg’s jumps and tours en l’air and briefly partnering Ms. Seo. At the end, snow fell from above and, in Bolshoi tradition, the audience threw 200 roses at the performers’ feet.

Finalists have recorded the same winners single; Little Mix's will be better than everyone else's

Although last year’s X Factor finalists recorded their own, individual winner’s singles, Marcus Collins, Amelia Lily Oliver and Little Mix have revealed that they have recorded the SAME song, which will be performed by the two finalists on Sunday.

Speaking at this morning’s X Factor press conference ahead of this weekend’s final, Marcus said that the mystery single is “really good.”

He said: “The single is really good. I worked so hard in the studio and gone back in since to rework it and make it as good as possible. I want to – and can – win with this.”

Amelia added that the single is “amazing” and everyone has put their own “twist” on the song. She said: “We’ve all tweaked the single, which is great. If I can sing this, it’ll be the icing on the cake.”

Little Mix said that they “loved” being in the studio and their version of the single is best. Jade Thirlwall said: “With four voices on it, the song is more dynamic.

“It would be lovely to win. We’ve had such a big journey and the best thing that’s happened is us starting as soloists and growing as a group.”

At today’s conference, Tulisa Contostavlos got behind her act, urging everyone to vote for Little Mix because it’ll make X Factor history. She said: “A group has never won this competition, especially not a girl group even getting this far in the competition.

"I'm the youngest judge, it's my first year and I want to change X Factor history with these little muffins behind me”.

Kelly Rowland praised her act Amelia Lily for her “work ethic” and said she’s been “beasting it” over the last few weeks.

Kelly added: “In this music industry you have to work hard to get to a place where you want to be, but you have to work harder to stay there. Amelia has brought the respect factor. Thank God she came back – the public proved me wrong.”

Gary Barlow said that Marcus won’t be the “new Robbie Williams” because he is a new, unique artist who will land a record deal regardless of whether he wins.

The Take That singer said: “Marcus will upstage me during our Billy Joel duet. It’s the biggest final ever and he deserves to win.”  


The single is gonna be Cannonball by Damien Rice btw.

Michael Moore encourages evictees to Occupy Our Homes: "If you get an eviction notice, don't leave"


Video won't embed, click picture to watch

Michael Moore was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" last night and discussed the power behind the 'Occupy Our Homes' initiative. Moore explains the strategy based on a suggestion by Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaputur for evicted homeowners to stay in their homes.

"If you get an eviction notice, don’t leave," Moore told Piers Morgan. "That’s the worst thing you can do. Stay there and when they take you to court, go to court and say to the judge. 'Could the bank please produce the mortgage?' The bank can’t."

Noomi Rapace on playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish films: "I'm so done with her"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, star of the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, graces the cover of this month’s edition of Blackbook and talks about Hollywood, the nomadic life of an international "it girl," and her transformation into the punked-out Dragon Girl.

On playing the "original" Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish trilogy:

“I felt like she lived in me,” Rapace says of her motorcycle-riding, vengeance-seeking alter ego. “My Lisbeth was my Lisbeth. I gave her my life and my soul for one-and-a-half years, and then I was finished.” She sighs, her face double-framed by her living room door and my computer screen. “I’m so done with her.”

After wrapping the final film in the Dragon Tattoo trilogy:

“My whole body was just kind of throwing Lisbeth out of me,” she says. Rapace spent the next week feeling traumatized and disembodied, her face still full of holes, mohawk collapsed. “I was like, I don’t know who I am anymore!” she adds, pushing a few strands of hair away from her face to reveal a pair of earrings. They are long, chainlike, and affixed to her lobes with golden talons. “It’s almost like you’re coming out of a…” She struggles for a moment, trying to articulate what it’s like to exorcize a fictional character. The earrings twinkle. “It’s like you’ve loaned yourself to someone else.”

On the "new" Lisbeth Salander, played by 25-year-old Rooney Mara:

“I’m pretty sure that they will do something completely different with her,” she says.

Guy Ritchie on Noomi, after directing her in the upcoming 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel:

“I like Noomi because she’s ballsy,” says Guy Ritchie. “She’s smart and committed to doing the best she can. She’s always full of ideas.”

I loved Noomi in the Swedish trilogy. She did great. I can't imagine someone else playing Lisbeth, although I'm ecstatic to see the new film!

Sacha Baron Cohen to be Thernardier in Les Mis

The UK Sun is reporting that Sacha Baron Cohen, known to musical theatre fans for his turn in SWEENEY TODD opposite Helena Bonham Carter in the Tim Burton film, has joined the upcoming LES MISERABLES film as Monsieur Thernardier. The Sun reports that that he will be reuniting with Bonham Carter in the film. Previous reports had indicated that Geoffrey Rush was in talks to play the part.

Last week, BroadwayWorld reported that Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, and Evan Rachel Wood are all contenders to play Eponine in the movie. Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne have all signed on to play Fantine, Val Jean, Javert and Marius, respectively. The film aims to start filming in March under the direction of Tom Hooper.

Les Miserables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen's Theatre on 3 April 2004. When LES MISÉRABLES celebrated its 21st London birthday on 8 October 2006, it became the World's Longest Running Musical, surpassing the record previously held by "Cats" in London's West End. In January 2010, the West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 10,000th performance.

Michelle Duggar Miscarries

A day of joyful anticipation has turned to anguish for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

At a routine check-up Thursday to find out the sex of their 20th child, their doctor was unable to find a heartbeat and told the couple they had miscarried in the second trimester.

"After the appointment, we came back home and told the children," says Michelle, 45.

"We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment."

She says the family will select a name after they know if the baby was a boy or girl, and then plan to have funeral service.

"I feel like my heart broke telling my children," says Michelle. "They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him."

The stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting previously weathered a medical ordeal with their youngest daughter, Josie, who was born in December 2009.

This was their second miscarriage; Michelle lost her baby during her second pregnancy. She was taking oral birth control at the time and cites this as one reason the couple together decided to leave the number of children they have "up to God."

Miyamoto NOT retiring, role at Nintendo isn't changing

It turns out that Shigeru Miyamoto's "retirement" yesterday was the result of a misunderstanding at Wired. The legendary Nintendo designer is not stepping down from his current position, although he will be training a new breed of developers for the future.

"Video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto's role at Nintendo is not changing," confirmed Nintendo. "He will continue to be a driving force in Nintendo's development efforts. In discussing his priorities at Nintendo in a media interview, Mr Miyamoto explained how he is encouraging the younger developers at the company to take more initiative and responsibility for developing software.

"He attempted to convey his priorities moving forward, inclusive of overseeing all video game development and ensuring the quality of all products. Mr Miyamoto also discussed his desire to pursue fresh ideas and experiences of the kind that sparked his initial interest in video games."

The idea of Miyamoto ever retiring is ridiculous, as every schoolboy knows that he has access to a Lazarus Pit that keeps him young and healthy forever. He's going nowhere, for he will never die.

Glee's 'We Are Young' rises to #1, currently outselling Rihanna by 2 to 1

For the second time this season, Glee hit number one. Keep reading to see how the talented cast nabbed the number one spot.

Glee isn't a stranger to producing hits that fans love to jam out to and this week's episode gave gleeks just that. The proof is in the number one honor.

Glee's Tuesday night episode, "Hold On To Sixteen," gave the show its second number one hit this season with the song "We Are Young."

If you were watching, and we know you were, the song was performed in the last minutes of the sectionals episode that blended The Troubletones and New Directions into a mega-hit glee club.

The return of Mercedes, Santana and Brittany to the New Directions was music to many fans' ears.

The cast's version of "We Are Young," from pop band Fun, hit number one on iTunes Tuesday night.

It's the same feat the cast managed a few episodes back with their mash-up for "Rumour Has It/Someone Like You."


The song's lead over the rest rn is ridiculous. It would be fun if they could knock Rihannot's assorted wig collection off the top of the charts, but they'll pretty much have to keep this huge lead until the end of the week.

Lisa D'Amato, Allison Harvard, and Angelea Preston were battling for the crown, but after an unusual panel, the judges declared that Preston was disqualified – without saying exactly why – and that D'Amato and Harvard would square off for the title.

Glee to do Michael Jackson Tribute Episode

In case you were wondering how else Glee could ruin pop culture impact your brain, have we got some Glee spoilers news for you! Unclench your jaw and get ready for it to drop: your favorite musical show is taking on the one and only Michael Jackson!

That's right- TVGuide is officially reporting that FOX's hit series (or really awful show, depending on what day it is and whether or not I'm in a good mood) will be taking on the music of the man that may very well be the greatest entertainer who ever lived. The show's January 24th episode will be the show's Michael Jackson tribute episode, and the first tribute hour the show has done so far in its entire third season. Glee will cover 10-12 of Jackson's classics.

Glee has previously paid homage to Britney Spears ("Brittany/Britney"), Fleetwood Mac ("Rumours"), Lady Gaga ("Theatricality/Born This Way"), and Madonna ("The Power Of Madonna"), so MJ's moves aren't the first to be honored by the series. They may, however, be the most impressive. Do you have high hopes for the tribute or should Glee back away from the infamous moonwalker? source

Um, yeah, I'll be skipping over the Fox channel during that particular week.

Corey Taylor interview gives hope that we may never have to endure another Slipknot album.

Taylor speaks about Oxford lectures (lulz), solo tour and the death of Paul Gray

It’s been a liberating year for Corey Taylor. The vocalist behind the mask of Slipknot member #8 and out front of Stone Sour has pulled back from his musically aggressive ways to release an irreverent, thought-provoking book about the Seven Deadly Sins, speak at England’s renowned Oxford University about his literary efforts and also embark on a solo book reading/acoustic concert tour that recently found him singing the SpongeBob SquarePants theme to his children onstage. But none of these extra-metal activities should sound surprising because Taylor is a man who likes to mash up his life in funny ways, and he has been reveling in his current solo tour because it truly reveals his personality.

Reminder: Special New Grimm Tonight At 10pm on NBC & New Ep Friday

Is it a riff on the old Pied Piper story...or Glee gone bad? On a special Thursday episode (10/9c) of NBC's fairy-tale-inspired crime series Grimm, a teacher at a performing-arts school will die gruesomely, leaving many of the students on the suspect list Nick (David Giuntoli) must investigate. "It's a very ambitious episode with really cool techno music and a buttload of rats," says exec producer David Greenwalt. "It is not for the faint of heart."

That's followed tomorrow night — in the show's normal Friday-at-9/8c timeslot — by an hour of revenge featuring pigs and the wolves who've hunted them for centuries. Drop Dead Diva's Jaime Ray Newman guest stars as a hot 'n' hairy number who shares a stormy past with Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell). "She is a real wild ass," Greenwalt notes. "And by that I don't mean donkey. On our show, you have to clarify that! Wait till you see Jaime wolfing out. It's really amazing."

Then, on December 16 comes a story of a feral teenager who hides in the woods and hasn't been to a hairdresser in years. "It's a very cool telling of the Rapunzel story," says exec producer Jim Kouf. "She doesn't just use that long braid of hers to climb up and down stuff. She uses it with violent intent."

Source 1 & 2

Thurs is Ep 5 and Friday is Ep 6. Since this show is has been on a while and since it's gonna be on all season the haters can probably stop watching and go back to swooning over the overacting and bad CGI of the Disney brainwashing that is Once Upon A Time.

British fashion houses warned over intern exploitation

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

HMRC has written to over 100 fashion labels warning them to make sure they are paying interns that are treated as employees the national minimum wage.

Over 100 fashion houses have been warned not to exploit young interns ahead of next spring's London Fashion Week, HM Revenue & Customs has revealed.

The taxman said it had evidence that some well known fashion labels were treating their interns as employees but were not paying them the national minimum wage (NMW).
Interns are used extensively by many famous fashion labels, especially in the run up to shows.

Michelle Wyer, HMRC's assistant director for the NMW, said letters had been sent to 102 labels that had exhibited at London Fashion Week in September.

"These letters give fashion houses plenty of warning that they are under scrutiny. If they are not playing by the rules, now is the time to put things right. Non-payment of the national minimum wage is not an option.

"Our message is clear: don't wait for us to come knocking on your door; put things right now and avoid a penalty and possible prosecution."

The Flawless Rita Ora is Getting Some of that Kardashian Ass

Looks like one of the Kardashians has a secret lover.

No, it's not the pregnant one, or the one who's married to the ball player, or the one who divorced the other ball player, it's Rob, the youngest of the Kardashian clan, who has reportedly been dating Roc Nation singer Rita Ora behind closed doors.

The New York Post claims that the 'Dancing with the Stars' finalist, 24, has been dating the 21-year-old Kosovo-born, U.K.-raised singer for several months, after they were set up by rapper Romeo, though the only evidence of their relationship is some scant exchanges on Twitter.

The Post claims that even Rob's older sisters are not aware of his relationship with Ora, who shuttles between her home in London, and the U.S.

"Rob lives a life separate to the girls and is definitely a ladies' man," explains the Post's source. "But he wouldn't have more then one [woman] at a time. He's a good boy."

Rob and Rita will allegedly be making their public debut as a couple at the Dream Downtown later tonight (Dec. 8), where Rob will be DJing an event for Macy's active-wear line, Ideology. Rob has previously been tied to Disney actress Adrienne Bailon, who appeared with him on his family's popular reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' until the couple split in 2009.

Secrecy is nothing new for Ora, who signed a similarly hush hush deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation in 2009, when she was just 19, and had a cameo appearance in Hov's video for 'Forever Young.' She also starred in Drake's video for his 2010 smash 'Over.' Her debut album is likely to be released some time in 2012.

Reps for the singer and reality star have declined to comment regarding their alleged affair.

Michael Buble Still Beating Your Faves

Michael Buble Expected To Have Merry ‘Christmas’ On Next Week’s Chart, Too

Michael Buble’s Christmas has been the reigning champ on the Top 200 album chart for two weeks, and Billboard doesn’t expect the Canadian crooner’s festive LP to budge from peak position anytime soon. In fact, the publication notes that Christmas, which features such guests as Shania Twain, the Puppini Sisters and Thalia, could sell more in the coming week than the 293,000 it moved in the previous frame.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Viral Campaign Begins?

After The Dark Knight launched its viral “Why So Serious?” campaign way back in 2007, the movie obviously went on to be a smash. How much of that was due in part to alternative marketing is up for debate, but with The Dark Knight Rises just around the corner, it’s no surprise that we might be seeing the beginning of another viral run-up. Recently, The Wrap (via Movie Viral) interviewed Jeff Robinov, the President of Warner Bros. Motion Pictures, who said that the “marketing strategy will definitely evolve” from the previous Batman installment.

Hot on the heels of that quote, Empire and Wired (via Movie Viral) received two separate “CIA documents” concerning a Dr. Leonid Pavel. While that name doesn’t yet ring a bell, readers over at ComingSoon connected Pavel’s mugshot to that of actor Alon Aboutboul, who has a role in The Dark Knight Rises. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but hit the jump to check the documents out just the same.

Blur to receive Outstanding Contribution gong at the 2012 Brit awards

Blur will receive an Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the 2012 Brit Awards.

The band, whose debut album Leisure was released over 20 years ago, will be honoured at the ceremony. It comes after the four-piece reformed in 2009 for a series of shows, including a widely praised headline performance at Glastonbury festival.

Blur frontman Damon Albarn said: "It's great to have recognition for all the work and all the heartache and all the joy that's gone into this band."

Guitarist Graham Coxon added: "Being in a band this long is like a kind of time travel. We're the same gang we ever were, we've just landed in a different era. Or possibly we're a totally different Blur still playing the old tunes in 1991… forever. I haven't decided. But it's always nice to get a Brit award."

Past winners of the Outstanding Contribution to Music award, which is making a comeback after having been rested last year, include Paul McCartney, U2 and their fiercest Britpop rivals Oasis. During their career, Blur have received 15 Brit nominations, winning four awards in 1995. There is further speculation that the band will also play live next year.

The Brit awards will take place on 21 February 2012 at the O2 in London.

RollingStone's Top 10 Britney Spears Songs of All Time

10. 'Stronger'
Britney has been pushing back against controlling influences ever since her second album, Oops!…I Did It Again. "Stronger," that set's third single, is a dance pop anthem of self-empowerment that is both obviously autobiographical and highly relatable to anyone eager to define themselves as a young adult.

9. 'Sometimes'
Britney's second single wasn't nearly as huge as her debut hit "…Baby One More Time," but it's still beloved by many of the singer's hardcore fans. After years of increasingly aggressive and sexy dance music, it's sort of refreshing to revisit a time when Spears came off as innocent and squeaky-clean.

8. 'Everytime'
"Everytime" is widely speculated to be Britney's answer to Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River," his breakout solo hit about the end of their romantic relationship. While Timberlake expressed his sorrow with electro-pop quasi-symphonic grandeur, Spears went in the opposite direction, offering her side of the story in a simple, piano-led ballad that showcases a vulnerability that rarely comes out in her other tunes.

Scotland hit by "Hurricane Bawbag"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Scotland and northern England have been hit with winds of up to 165mph, leaving thousands without power and shutting down schools and airports, closing roads and cancelling trains as far south as Newcastle.

The Met Office issued a red weather warning alert as the severe winds battered rush-hour traffic.

In the Aonach Mor, near to Fort William, gusts of 130mph were recorded. The Met Office warned of south or south-east winds of up to Gale Force 8, veering west or southwest towards a strength of 11.

Even as the storm hit, however, users of Twitter found time to see the lighter side. They dubbed the winds 'Hurricane Bawbag' and by 3pm it was possible to buy T-shirts marking the occasion.

Collapse )

Twitter has #hurricanebawbag as a top worldwide trend at the moment, meaning that millions of Twitter users around the globe will suddenly be wondering what on earth a “bawbag” actually is.

Sensitive souls may want to look away now, but according to folklore it’s a vulgar Scottish term used for the scrotum, also derogatively against anybody who’s a bit of an idiot. (For example, Jeremy Clarkson may often be thought of as a complete bawbag. Matthew Wright was definitely a bawbag earlier in the week. And so on and so forth.)

It’s often deployed with a bit of sly humour. And with typical Scottish enterprise, only a couple of hours after it was coined there was already Hurricane Bawbag merchandise on sale, available to order during your lunchtime break. By 3pm there was even Bawbag bling "hot off the laser cutter", thanks to Bonnie Bling.

Collapse )

Not necessarily celebrity but it is being widely reported and it's kind of cool that we can see the humour in such a thing. Several celebrities have also tweeted about it. Typically Scottish, eh? In all seriousness though, I hope everyone affected is safe and sound and that nobody has been hurt. Take care everyone xo

Jerry Sandusky
's wife is standing behind her man ... claiming he NEVER raped any boys and insists all of his accusers are making up their stories. 

For the first time since the allegations went public, Dottie Sandusky has released a statement through her husband's lawyer ... claiming she never witnessed Jerry sexually abusing anyone ... and doesn't believe any of the allegations. 

In her statement Dottie says she's been "shocked and dismayed by the allegations made against Jerry."

She adds, "As the mother of six children, I have been devastated by these accusations. "

"Our children, our extended family and friends know how much Jerry and I love kids and have always tried to help and care for them. We would never do anything to hurt them. I am so sad anyone would make such a terrible accusation which is absolutely untrue. We don't know why these young men have made these false accusations, but we want everyone to know they are untrue."

As we previously reported, Dottie helped bail her husband out of jail this morning after he was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing two more young boys.

Who Should Play Patrick Bateman This Time Around?

According to Variety, Lionsgate is thinking of “taking another stab” (pun intended) at the popular 2000 film about a unhinged, yuppie serial killer, originally played by Christian Bale. However, unlike the first film, the remake will reportedly be set in current time and “explore how Bateman would fare in modern-day Gotham.”

And while the movie is reportedly in the early stages of development and casting has yet to be announced, here are our five choices to play Patrick Bateman, the film’s titular, knife-wielding character.

10 Stereotype busting TV characters

A few weeks ago I stumbled across this list of Ten Characters You Meet On Primetime TV, enumerating some of the stock characters and stereotypes writers trot out on a weekly basis. While I agree with much of the list (and am a little concerned with the author’s apparent fondness for “Two Broke Girls”), one entry made me bristle. Call Tom Haverford of “Parks and Recreation” a “Token South Asian” will you? NOT ON MY WATCH, FLAVORPILL.

Then, I took a breath, treated myself to some chicky chicky parm parm, and thought about other characters who defy stereotypes. And, truth be told, they’re not too thick on the ground. As Dustin pointed out the other day, some of the oldest stereotypes are still alive and well on our favorite shows. There’s “The Hapless Single Gal” Liz Lemon (“30 Rock”), “The Sassy Black Lady” Donna Meagle (“Parks and Recreation”) and “The Nagging Housewife” Claire Dunphy (“Modern Family”). Sometimes, as is the case with Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon, the stock characters are parodies that are meant to poke fun at the stereotype. But, in doing so, there’s still a certain level of perpetuation. Also, it’s not that we don’t love these characters, we do. (Truth be told, I don’t love Claire Dunphy, but homegirl won the Emmy this year, so somebody loves her.) But isn’t it nice to see some nice, complicated characters that break the mold? It is, I promise. So, with one exception, here are ten characters on current TV shows that bust those stereotypes wide open, much to our delight.

The Token Gay: Max Blum “Happy Endings”: Dustin has been ringing this bell since “Happy Endings” premiered last year, but Max truly is one of the most refreshingly non-“gay” gay characters on television. Are some homosexual men effeminate? Do many of them like shopping, sharp clothes and sassy catchphrases. Sure! Most likely! But it’s rather boss for the slovenly, macho Max to represent. Cause, ya know, the gays come in all shapes and colors, not just pink.
