sundance review of film about rape in the US military

Stunning, muckraking documentaries are a staple at Sundance, but even by the film festival's impressive standards, Kirby Dick’s “The Invisible War” is exceptional — both for its scandalous nature as well as its emotional impact.

Having its world premiere in Park City, Utah, on Friday night, this investigation of the epidemic of rape in the U.S. military (against both women and men) is such a tragically moving story that even Dick, a veteran Oscar-nominated director (“Twist of Faith”), said the stories he heard were “the most intense series of interviews I have ever been involved with.”

It's not only the number of rapes that take place in the military that is staggering — the film estimates, based on extrapolation of military statistics, that 30% of servicewomen are sexually assaulted during their enlistment and that they are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan than killed by the enemy.

this should probably be outside of the cut so everyone knows: "they are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan than killed by the enemy"

Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock May Tour Together

In other Chris Rock news out of Sundance: His once-rumored standup tour with Dave Chappelle still might happen. During a chat with Vulture about his movie 2 Days In New York (which will run in full on Thursday), Rock briefly talked about to us about his upcoming projects, and while he didn't have much to say about his role in the omnibus comedy What To Expect When You're Expecting ("Yeah, that's coming out"), he's pretty excited to go out on tour.

Victoria's Secret Launches First High-End Lingerie Collection

 Victoria’s Secret has launched its first high-end lingerie collection, called The Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection. The line, which is rendered in shimmery see-through chiffons and trimmed with European lace, ribbons and embroideries, features playful baby dolls, barely there unlined bras, deep-plunge push-up bras, string bikinis, low-cut teddies, garter belts, a kimono and a merry widow corset. The collection has been kept under wraps — even at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November when several key items were featured as part of the regular lineup. The in-house designer collection replaces the decades-long concept of featuring upscale designer brands such as Chantelle Thomas on the main floor of Victoria’s Secret stores. The idea was to attract a more affluent and sophisticated consumer. Ed Razek, president and chief marketing officer of Victoria’s Secret, said, “We took it in-house because we have a design team that has such a passion for lingerie, and they differentiate Victoria’s Secret from any other brand.”

The collection has nearly sold out since it began selling Tuesday at victoriassecret.com and at five units, including the Lexington Avenue and Herald Square megastores, said Razek. Plans are to expand distribution of the summer collection to seven additional units in late June, totaling 13 doors.

Bras retail from $98 to $158; undies and garter belts are $38 to $68; baby dolls and teddies are $158 to $218, and the kimono and merry widow are $120 and $298, respectively.

Ke$ha: Announces Documentary, Official iTunes Release Of Bob Dylan Tribute

After having talked about the idea before, Ke$ha now hinted at an upcoming documentary:

She tweeted this after having warned fans not to waste their money on an unauthorized Ke$ha documentary for sale on Amazon.

An exact release date is yet to be announced. It's unclear whether it's going to be a tour documentary of last year's "Get Sleazy" Tour only, or if it's going to be autobiographical and/or feature material from recording in the studio as well.

Also, Amnesty International's "Chimes of Freedom - The Songs of Bob Dylan" in celebration of the NGO's 50th birthday including Ke$ha's and others' Bob Dylan tribute songs has officially been released to iTunes yesterday.

'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close': Worst Reviewed Movie Of The Past 10 Years To Receive A Best Picture Nom

The review collection site, Rotten Tomatoes, was launched in 1999, and has since become a go-to site for film criticism. And in the last ten years, no other Best Picture nominee has received worse reviews than "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," which became one of nine films to be nominated for the coveted Academy Award today.

As of today, "Extremely Loud," which was directed by Stephen Daldry and starred Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, has a 48% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 57 positive reviews at 62 negative ones. However, in this case, the negative reviews are especially loud and incredibly negative. The Onion's AV Club gave the film a very rare "F" grade, calling it an "appalling adaptation," which "processes the immense grief of a city and a family through a conceit so nauseatingly precious that it’s somehow both too literary and too sentimental, cloying yet aestheticized within an inch of its life."

Has anyone seen this film? What do you think of it?


SHE’S YOUNG, travels only first-class and has a wardrobe to die for: Harper Beckham may not yet be able to sit up unaided, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a style icon. Indeed, she has already been recognised for her contribution to fashion, aged just six months. Company magazine has ranked her number six out of this year’s “10 New Faces of Fashion”, in recognition of her “sophisticated style” and “use of cashmere and smock dresses”.

Like her mum, Harper prefers to keep it all designer – no mixing designer with Baby Gap for this chubby-cheeked style veteran. Her favourite labels are Chloé, Stella McCartney and Bonpoint, which according to its site is a “French childrenswear couture house” – every babygrow is hand-stitched, one can assume.

Company awards the fashion top spot to Clémence Poésy, the Birdsong actress and Karl Lagerfeld muse – god help her. Second is US actress Zooey Deschanel. The Duchess of Cornwall, who favours a Britney-dressed-as-Whitney look comes in at number four.

In a recent interview, David Beckham joked that he’s got to keep busy with his football team, Los Angeles Galaxy, earning the dollars to pay for it all. “Her wadrobe is ridiculous,” he says of his new daughter. “I’m glad I got a two-year contract… everything about [Harper] is feminine. Her first word is going to be mama.” Or Miu Miu?

Watch David Tennant & Kelly Macdonald In The First Trailer For ‘The Decoy Bride’

A couple of weeks back we announced that David Tennant’s latest film The Decoy Bride had been picked up by IFC films for US distribution. Now, just a couple of weeks before its release, the trailer for the movie that sees Tennant team up with fellow Scot, Kelly Macdonald (TV’s Boardwalk Empire), finally gets a trailer.

This romantic comedy written by comedian Sally Phillips and Neil Jaworski sees Tennant playing a writer who is about to marry one of the most famous movie stars around, Lara Tyler (played by Alice Eve). The world’s media descend on the remote Scottish island where they are supposed to be getting married, but to put the paparazzi off the scent a local girl (Macdonald) is hired as a ‘decoy bride’.

Directed by Sheree Folkson, The Decoy Bride will be available on VOD (through your cable boxes) on 3rd February and released in theatres on 9th March.


Demi Lovato Not In Rebab For Substance Abuse

Reps for the singer/actress deny rumors that she recently checked into a Malibu treatment center.

After a report surfaced that Demi Lovato had entered treatment again, her camp has confirmed to MTV News that the story is anything but true.

A gossip website reported on January 19 that the singer/actress had checked into a Malibu treatment center to deal with substance-abuse issues. However, the Blind Gossip report didn't pick up steam until this week. When MTV News reached out to her reps for comment on Wednesday (January 25), they said, "Demi's team confirmed it's untrue."

Earlier this week, Lovato did have some news for her fans when she announced she was taking a break from Twitter. "Twitter break. It's for the best actually. Who allows me to have this thing anyways?!!! I just get myself in trouble! Haha. Anyway... BYE!" she tweeted on Saturday.

It's not the first time Lovato has left the social networking site. She quit tweeting in October 2010, shortly before she entered a treatment facility to deal with personal issues including eating disorders and cutting. Lovato joined Twitter again in May 2011, months after she left the center.

Since returning to the spotlight, she has focused her music career, including her 2011 album, Unbroken, which launched her empowering hit single "Skyscraper." She is currently working on the video for her next single, "Give Your Heart a Break."

Lovato has become a voice for young people struggling with personal issues. In December, she visited and spoke to patients at the Timberline Knolls Center, where she had received treatment.

"To be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier ... Life is beautiful ... you are worthy of it," Lovato said. "Please say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self-harm, mood disorders and substance abuse."

Saint Etienne - 'Tonight' (new single)

Saint Etienne, the stalwart British band of such songs like Only Love Can Break Your Heart, A Good Thing and Method of Modern Love, have released the first single for their new album  'Words and Music by Saint Etienne'.

The song is titled 'Tonight' and is available for free download for a while off their website http://www.saintetienne.com/

From their website:

Tonight is the first single from Saint Etienne's forthcoming album - their first in seven years.

Like the album it's taken from, Tonight is all about the primal and atavistic pull that all good pop music exerts, about how the unadulterated thrill of a great band or gig can sometimes feel like a hotline straight to your heart.

The track is produced by Xenomania lynchpin Tim Powell (Girls Aloud, Kylie, Sugababes), and mixed by Richard X, and in Bob's own words, "Tonight is about the anticipation of going to see your favourite group. For some reason, I imagine this show is at the Forum in Kentish Town. The whole album is about the power of pop, how it affects and shapes your life."

Here's a 4:38 edit:


Classy as fuck, unsurprisingly. One of my favourite bands ever. BRB putting this on repeat~

Vulture compares ONTD's favorite Oscar Nominee to Audrey Hepburn

Oscar Nominee Rooney Mara: The New Audrey Hepburn?

Every year, some gamine, non-blonde actress with big eyes (Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Emma Watson et al.) is inevitably likened to Audrey Hepburn. Enter: Rooney Mara, 2012. Though not an entirely obvious comparison, Hepburn and Mara might have more in common than unwavering stares and enviable cheekbones. Tomboyish and brunette, Audrey was a refreshing alternative to fifties pinup stars Lana Turner and Marilyn Monroe, and Rooney certainly stands out for her non-conformist goth-princess vibe.

Both actresses became superstars seemingly overnight. Hepburn’s 1953 breakout role in Roman Holiday – as a princess gone AWOL – earned the previously obscure beauty an Oscar for Best Actress; Mara has the chance to make that happen this year. Hepburn didn’t have to pierce her nipple to play Princess Ann, but let’s not forget that in her later role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, she actually portrayed a high-class hooker, so Hepburn was obviously not afraid to take some risks. Just as Truman Capote envisioned Marilyn Monroe for the role of Holly Golightly, Scarlett Johansson auditioned for the role of Lisbeth Salander; both Hepburn and Mara won out over bombshell blondes for their respective roles.

One thing at least seems certain in the history of Other Actresses Compared to Audrey-Hepburn: None but Mara share her baffling ability to turn crazy bangs into style statements.

The Wanted Got Stuck In An Elevator In New York

This must be an All Time Low! The Wanted get stuck in a lift on U.S. tour... but still manage to take a photo for fans

There's never a good time to get stuck in a lift, but it could have been a lot worse for The Wanted.

The British boyband are currently on a mini tour in the U.S. and found themselves trapped as they travelled in the elevator.

Luckily, however, the group getting stuck didn't happen on a night when they had a gig.
The boys tweeted a picture of themselves looking tired and fed up inside the lift.

And they accompanied the shot with the caption: 'After a 12 hour day, as we're getting ready to go home, we get stuck in an elevator....to be continued...'

Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes have flown Stateside in an attempt to break into the market.

We've all heard about the success of models in terms of the cashola they take home annually (enough to make you feel real emasculated, friend), in terms of their hotness (duh -- see our Top 99), but what about their online presences? Well, a website called PeekYou uses a ranking system from 1 to 10 that takes things like someone's prominence in the news, their activity on social media and such into account, which then translates into a score of how important they are online. 

For some, this is an interesting new way of ranking favorite models. For others, it's just another excuse to be reminded of them. Here's the list:

10. Daria Werbowy - Score: 8.58/10
9. Carolyn Murphy - Score: 8.63/10
8. Natalia Vodianova - Score: 8.68/10
7. Lara Stone - Score: 8.73/10
6. Candice Swanepoel - Score: 9.14/10
5. Alessandra Ambrosio - Score: 9.66/10
4. Gisele Bundchen - Score: 9.82/10
3. Adriana Lima - Score: 9,98/10
2. Heidi Klum - Score: 10/10
1. Kate Moss - Score: 10/10

So according to PeekYou, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum are the world's top models -- online.

Real Housewives Co-Stars Didn’t Believe Taylor Armstrong’s Abuse Claims

When Taylor Armstrong first revealed the shocking news that she was being abused at the hands of her husband Russell, her co-stars had a hard time believing her, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Taylor told the other women about her abuse, but her stories didn’t match up,” a show insider revealed. “They thought that maybe she wasn’t telling the truth about how Russell was treating her.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are not friends off screen, only on their reality show. And, when Taylor told the women that Russell was abusing her, they doubted her stories.

“The other Housewives didn’t understand why Taylor would claim that Russell was abusing her but would stay with him and not take care of the problem,” the source said. “They all offered her help to get out of the situation, but she didn’t do anything.”

Miike Snow And Lykke Li Team Up For New Song “Black Tin Box”

Oscars 2012: Why Only Two Nominees for Best Original Song?

The convoluted system to select nominees for the Best Original Song Oscar, which was altered in 2006 when the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences raised the number of best picture nominees to 10, came back to haunt it on Tuesday.

Only two songs -- "Man or Muppets" from The Muppets and "Real in Rio" from Rio -- received nominations Tuesday morning, shutting out Elton John's work on Gnomeo & Juliet, Pink's song in Happy Feet 2 and Zooey Deschanel's track from Winnie the Pooh. "Masterpiece," Madonna's song from W.E. that won a Golden Globe earlier this month, had already been ruled ineligible.

Unlike other categories, song nominees are determined by voting members of the music branch who watch sections of films where songs are played -- and nothing else. Since instituted, it has resulted in performance clips and animated songs being nominated but no end credit or background songs.

Voters assign each song a numerical score between 1 and 10 and if no song receives an average of less than 8.25, there are no nominees. If only one song tops the threshold, as clearly happened here, the next-highest vote-getter secures a nomination as well.

The music branch voters chose to honor Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords for his Jason Segel-sung "Man or Muppet" and the songwriting trio of Sergio Mendes, Carlinhos Brown and Siedah Garrett.

All of the songwriters are first time nominees and, as 70-year-old Mendes told Billboard early last year, Rio was the first film for which he has specifically written music. Brown is a significant star back in Brazil whose music has been released in the U.S. by EMI.


Bill Hudson whines some more about Kate and Goldie to the press

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kate Hudson has called Kurt Russell 'dad' for years, but her biological father exclusively tells RadarOnline.com it's "really painful" to hear his daughter refer to another man as her dad.

"At first it was okay when everybody was getting along, but there were certain things I didn't like. I didn't like that Goldie wanted the kids to call Kurt 'pa,'" Kate's father Bill Hudson told us in an exclusive interview.

"It was very confusing to the kids, particularly Kate, and that was really painful."

"Kurt is my dad," Kate told Vanity Fair in a past interview. "Kurt is a savior who came into my life. [Bill] was sort of in and out of our lives. I don't hate him for it. I guess what I feel is frustration and curiosity — like, what was it about me he didn't want to know?"

But Bill — who has been estranged from his children with ex-wife Goldie Hawn since their divorce in 1980, besides sporadic reconciliations — says he doesn't blame Kurt and is actually glad that a good man came into Kate and Oliver Hudson's life.

"Kurt has been there for her and I'm happy for that and I think it's a good thing. Kurt's a really good guy. What's more hurtful is Kate saying publicly that I've abandoned her because that's just not true," Bill said.

"It is not a trashy tell-all. It's my side of what happened and it's backed with facts and Goldie's own words and Kate's own words and my words and feelings," Bill explained.

"The record needs to be set and it needs to come out. I wanted to show that it was a love story between me and Goldie, enough that we had children together, and it just went awry. And it was Oliver and Kate that suffered in the end."

Collapse )

So, why doesn't he talk more about Oliver? And a book isn't a fucking apology, Bill. Shut up already - Kurt is their father and they clearly want nothing to do with you.

Michael Fassbender for Best Actor
Movie: Shame

The man behind the year’s big ‘Ooooh-matron’ moments, Michael Fassbender was extremely unlucky not to pick up an Oscar nomination for Shame. His performance as Brandon Sullivan, a character whose fractured sexual psyche leads him into some of the most intense movie moments since, well, Hunger, was the kind that normally has the Academy in raptures (see also: Midnight Cowboy and Last Tango In Paris). Sadly not this time. Possibly he's too young for the Academy, which has a terrible record when it comes to awarding lead actors under 40, or possibly he hasn't quite broken through in the US yet. Still, if he keeps producing work of this standard, and maybe keeps at least some of his clothes on next time so the male voters don't get an inferiority complex, he should take home the prize in the near future.

Elisha Cuthbert does Shape Magazine (Feb 2012) + behind the scenes

5 Facts About Elisha Cuthbert

Although Canadian-born beauty Elisha Cuthbert has been acting since she was 9 years old, appearing in hit movies like Old School and Love Actually, it was her role as Kim Bauer on 24 that made people sit up and take notice. Now everybody's favorite girl next door is starring as Alex, one of a group of friends trying to navigate love, life, and everything in between in the ABC hit Happy Endings.

Our February cover model spills her secrets on eating right, working out, and how she feels about turning 30 this year in the latest issue of SHAPE, on newsstands January 30. But there were a few fun facts that didn't make it to press—and were too good to keep to ourselves!

1. She speaks French. Cuthbert, who was born in Calgary, lived there until she was 11 years old, when her family packed their bags for Montreal. "We did a lot of moving around when I was younger," she says. "We lived in Vancouver for a while, and then Montreal, which was so foreign to us with everyone speaking French. It was wild!"

2. She paints to relieve stress. "Sometimes when you've been acting for so long, you get burnt out on it," Cuthbert says. "Painting was always sort of my outlet. I work mostly in acrylics, but it's always different. I do a lot of portrait stuff." When she's not acting or painting, the blonde bombshell can also be found cooking or hiking outdoors.

3. She's always traveling back and forth between L.A. and Toronto. Cuthbert, who is dating Toronto Maple Leaf's hockey player Dion Phaneuf, splits her time between the two cities and flies to Canada every weekend.

4. She's not a fan of junk food. "I'm more likely to splurge on a savory dish than a sweet one," she says. "But that's because I'm not much of a junk-food eater. I think that comes from being on set so much and having the craft table that's full of doughnuts and sweets throughout the day."

5. But she does drink wine. "I used to drink a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a heavy, full wine," she says. "Lately, I've been drinking a lot of wines that don't have as much body to them."

The Difficulty Of Defining Modern Animation

Posted on Wednesday January 25, 2012, 11:26 by Helen O'Hara in Empire States

There's been a bit of back-and-forth online over the last couple of days about whether or not The Adventures Of Tintin qualifies as animation. It appeared on the BAFTA nominations list in the Animated category, but was absent from the Oscar list* so we can't be sure whether it qualified there or not, or simply didn't win the votes. So is the entirely-performance-captured film real animation? Do we need to redefine our categories? What's going on?

Here's my position so far: I am inclined to think The Adventures Of Tintin is animation. At the same time, I'm OK with calling Avatar live-action - but no less an authority than animation guru Andrew Osmond, occasionally of this parish, would call that an animated film as well. Why do I consider one animation and not the other? Well, I'm not sure I can entirely justify it but let's give it a go.

Reese Witherspoon doesn't know how 'This Means War' ends

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Oscar-winning actress - who stars alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy in the romantic spy comedy - admits multiple endings were shot for the final scene, meaning she does not know which of the lead actors she ends up with.

She said: "We shot endings where I could end up with Tom, or I could end up with Chris, or I could end up alone. Or I could end up with Chelsea Handler!"

The blonde beauty wears a number of vertiginous pairs of heels in the film, directed by McG, and she was shocked when Chris Pine - best known as Captain Kirk in 'Star Trek' - asked her to keep them on during a sex scene.

She told Total Film magazine: "Tom and Chris were both obsessed with my shoes. Both of them! Obsessed with me wearing high-heeled sexy shoes. I was actually doing a sex scene with Chris and he said, 'Can you keep your shoes on?' I was like, OK,'."


lbr, it ends with Pine/Hardy having angry sex that results in accidental bumping that pushes her over a cliff (semi-kidding, I like Reese). I'm bored and don't really care about the movie, hot shoes post?

As Tilda Swinton’s son, Miller’s Kevin is obstinate and unmanageable, methodically tormenting his mother for her ambivalence towards him in increasingly perverse ways that culminate in a school shooting by bow and arrow. “The script was this incredible, beautiful amassment of millions of little symbols and sounds that viscerally directed the reader, and now I feel truly viscerally direct the viewer, in the experience of the main character Eva’s hindsight and her present emotional experience,” he says of the film. “To me, that was a great opportunity to be the most active propelling role in what is essentially a Greek tragedy viewed in hindsight. And to really develop a character that was set to ultimately self-destruct through his own impulsive quest for something that to this day I’m not entirely sure a human being can ever be denied, which is the love of a maternal guardian.”

Blind Items

Make catnip not war

1. Sundance: So, apparently this pretty much A list rapper R& B singer has a little kink in him. Actually I should say a big kink in him. Now I get why he and this A list female pop star with the bad judgment when it comes to exes hit it off for a few months. They can each out kink the other. Anyway, our male A list rapper picked up a couple of women the other night and shared them with this celebrity who was having trouble on his own. The only condition? Our rapper wanted to not only watch the celebrity with the one woman but then also wanted to swap after an hour. Oh, and this will be revealed. CDAN
My Guess: Drake, Rihanna, and Wiz Khalifa

2. A pregnancy in a family is normally happy news. Not so much for this over-30 actress. She is pregnant again, but unsure whether or not she wants to carry this baby to term. You see, she was planning on asking her husband for a divorce this year, and another baby with him was just not part of the plan. She told her friends that her reaction when she saw the positive pregnancy test was “Oh, no! Not another one!” She is only about 4 weeks along, so there is still plenty of time to decide. And since they have lots of money and are already good parents to their existing child/ren, keeping the baby wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. But she really needs to tell her husband first. That’s right: you know about the pregnancy before he does. Blind Gossip
My Guess:

3. Which squeaky-clean pop star is desperately trying to keep his pot-smoking habit and hookups with a Las Vegas hooker under wraps? The young crooner’s famous girlfriend wouldn’t care so much about his wacky weed habit, but she probably wouldn’t appreciate the cheating! National Enquirer
My Guess: The Biebs getting his munchies on with a hookah and Selena is all like "whaaaaat?"

4. This B/C list film actress will probably be announcing a pregnancy soon, unless the three positive pregnancy tests she left in a public restroom at a restaurant don’t belong to her. Buzz Foto
My Guess: Jennifer Aniston? idk idk.... but who takes pregnancy tests in a public bathroom and then LEAVES them there??? #tacky

5. This woman, who is rather thick to begin with, has always been very weight conscious. After plumping up a little recently, she wanted to sport a flat tummy at an upcoming awards show so you could marvel at how amazing and perfect she is. So she had some liposuction last week. While she’s been keeping a very low profile lately, she’s never been one to stay out of the spotlight for long, so the paps just might catch a glimpse of her out in public in either Los Angeles or New York. They might even note that she is walking slower than usual or holding her stomach. In any case, you will definitely see her at an upcoming awards show – perhaps even on stage, pretending that her flat stomach is the result of discipline and hard work. Blind Gossip
My Guess: Beyonce. The plumping up being that "baby" she didn't have

Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina' Promises Experimental Approach To A Familiar Story

After taking a major left-turn with last year's pop-art action fairy tale "Hanna," some were a little disappointed to see that Joe Wright was seemingly going back to his wheel house, returning to Working Title Films for another period literary adaptation starring Keira Knightley, in the tradition of first and second films, "Pride & Prejudice" and "Atonement." While his take on Leo Tolstoy's classic "Anna Karenina" has an incredibly prestigious team and cast -- a script from Tom Stoppard and a roster, including Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Matthew Macfayden, Ruth Wilson, Olivia Williams and Domnhall Gleeson -- it was hard to see it as anything other than lush, pretty costume drama Oscar bait.

The worst possible news: Sherlock won't return in 2012

 executive producer Sue Vertue has dismissed suggestions apparently made by husband Steven Moffat that the programme will return in 2012

The showrunner was supposed to have said on Friday (January 20) that a third series of the BBC drama - which concluded last Sunday (January 15) - would air later this year

Moffat also apparently claimed that scenes showing how Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) survived his rooftop plummet in series two finale 'The Reichenbach Fall' had already been filmed. 

In response to the comments, Vertue has taken to Twitter and clarified that a 2012 Sherlockreturn is "sadly unlikely". 

"Sorry to be a killjoy but @steven_moffat didn't actually mean S3 of #sherlock would tx before end of year," she wrote. "I think that is sadly unlikely."

Moffat has, however, said that fans will not have to wait "that long" for the next series of Sherlock.

He confirmed this week that a third run of the show had been secretly commissioned along with its second last year

Victoria Jackson Is Way More Fucked Up Than Anyone Imagined

Tea Party Princess
Victoria Jackson went from the big leagues of comedy to the rabid right of modern politics

Victoria Jackson hurtles through intersections and down side streets while using her left hand to hold a Flip cam to her face. The inside of her car—a weathered Honda Civic with "Nobama," Marco Rubio, and Tea Party bumper stickers—smells like it has been fumigated with sweet incense. Steering with elbows and the occasional pinkie, she opens a Bible inscribed with her name and quotes Scripture in her inimitable high-pitched voice. Then she turns the camera on a reporter riding shotgun. She suspects he's a socialist. "Don't you think that some people are on welfare from cradle to grave," she demands, "because the government is encouraging them never to work?"

"Leaving on a Jet Plane," her ringtone, blares from some unknown recess of her purse, and she's suddenly burrowing through loads of makeup cases to find it. "What if we crashed and died on video?" she says, laughing wildly. "That would be the most viral video of the world! You'd be dead, but you'd have a really viral video!"

Demi Moore Health Crisis ... Inhaling Nitrous Oxide 

Demi Moore
's friend called paramedics Monday night after the actress inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell TMZ ... one of Demi's friends who was at her home told emergency workers Demi was doing whip-its.  A whip-it is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant.

The friend said she became upset when Demi had a reaction to a whip-it and lapsed into semi-consciousness.

It appears Demi had symptoms of a seizure -- after inhaling the nitrous.

A whip-it is not a common drug among people of Demi's age and social status.  It's typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill.


Armie Hammer ARRESTED!!! (don't worry; it was just for weed)

Authorities say Hollywood actor Armie Hammer was arrested at a border patrol checkpoint in West Texas after a drug sniffing dog discovered marijuana in his car.

The 25-year-old, who starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in "J. Edgar," spent about a day in jail before paying a $1,000 bond.

Arrest records show he had 0.02 ounces of marijuana, three medicinal marijuana cookies and one brownie when arrested Nov. 30 in Sierra Blanca, a few miles from the Mexican border.

El Paso's district attorney declined to prosecute because a felony requires more than 4 ounces of actual marijuana. The county attorney could pursue lesser charges since the case is going back to the local sheriff, but Hammer's lawyer Kent Schaffer says no charges have been presented.

Hammer also starred in "The Social Network."

Halle Berry: Child Services Pays Visit Over Aubry Abuse Allegations

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is at Halle Berry's home right now ... interviewing her over claims that baby daddy Gabriel Aubry had put 3-year-old Nahla in harm's way.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the visit to Halle is routine -- whenever there's a claim of abuse or neglect, DCFS will interview both parents. It underscores that DCFS is not blowing off the nanny's claim -- that Gabriel allegedly pushed her against a door with the kid in her arms.

The nanny also claims Gabriel has violently yanked Nahla out of her arms.

There is also a criminal investigation to determine if Gabriel committed the crimes of child endangerment or battery.

Karl Lagerfeld Shoots Lingerie Look Book for Alleged Former Underage French Prostitute, Zahia Dehar

Zahia Dehar
may be an unfamiliar name here in the US, but she’s tabloid fodder on a grand scale over in Europe. She caused a furor in France back in 2010 when it was revealed that she had slept with several prominent French footballers for payment (about £2,000 a night, according to an article in the Telegraph at that time). Prostitution is legal in France, but you have to be 18 to peddle your wares, and she wasn’t.
What does any of this have to do with fashion, you ask? Well, her preternaturally inflated curves caught the fancy of a few editors, artists, and photographers. She was featured on the cover of V Spain in spring 2011 and Vanity Fair Italy in August 2011. In a V interview she alluded to some future projects:

Drake STILL wants to play Obama so i guess he was serious the 1st time

 While in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, Drake caught up with VH1 News and talked about acting again in the future. The former Degrassi star stated that getting back into acting was definitely in his future plans, but that he's being patient in finding the right role.

“I’ve been reading scripts for a while,” he said. “I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now,” Drake stated.

Drake went on to reveal that his dream gig would be getting a chance to play President Barack Obama in a movie about his life.

“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” said Drake. “That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”

Drake admitted that most of the scripts he was getting right now were for roles of a rapper or basketball player,  but that he was looking for something else, something that went beyond what people would expect him to play

W.E. did get a Oscar nom for Best Costume Design.

Madonna's directorial debut 'W.E.' failed to chart in the Top 10 of the UK Box Office in its opening weekend.

The drama, which has attracted mixed reviews from critics, took only £182,914 from 172 screenings since its opening on Friday, January 20.

Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse', meanwhile, managed a second week at the top of the rankings as it raked in another huge £3.2 million, down only slightly on its £3.9 opening last week.

The highest new entry is thriller 'Haywire', which debuts at No. 2 with £1.2 million taken. 'Underworld: Awakening' bows at No. 3 ith £1.1m.

The other new entry in the Top 10 is 'The Sitter', which debuts at No. 6.

'J. Edgar', starring Leonardo DiCaprio, joins 'W.E.' outside the upper end of the list, as it makes its debut at a disappointing No. 12.

Evangeline Whiney talks her Mary Sue character in The Hobbit

Speaking of small and little, I’d be remiss not to bring up The Hobbit. You’re playing a new character named Tauriel, who’s a Mirkwood elf, and that would lead me to believe that she is a warrior of some kind. Did you have to learn archery and swordplay?

Yes, she is a warrior. She’s actually the head of the Elven guard. She’s the big shot in the army. So she knows how to wield any weapon, but the primary weapons that she uses are a bow and arrow and two daggers. And she’s lethal and deadly. You definitely wouldn’t want to be caught in a dark alley next to Tauriel.

So then Tauriel must be involved with the dwarves being captured…

I think basically what you’re asking is if she’s in the film very much. She’s not in the first film very much. She comes into the first film near the end, and has a very small part to play. Her role in the second film is much more involved. Although, I have to say, when I first read the scripts and took the job, she had a lot less going on in the second film. I think the role is becoming a bit more demanding that I had expected it to be. There’s a lot more for me to do now, which is a lot of fun, but it’s a little more pressure.

Does she play a large part in the Battle of Five Armies?
Oh, I don’t know. We haven’t shot that yet. I still have to go back for five more months of filming.


rihanna + nicola roberts to launch fashion TV show in the UK

International superstar Rihanna is set to join the Sky Living family.

In her first ever television project, she’ll be executive-producing and appearing in an original and hugely ambitious new fashion series exclusively for Sky Living HD.

Synonymous with cutting-edge style, the ‘We Found Love’ singer is searching Britain for the next generation of raw, undiscovered designer talent and has hand-picked Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts to head up the challenge for her.

The show will celebrate the extraordinary talent and creativity in the British fashion scene. With Rihanna, a fashion icon herself, and Nicola, who created her own Dainty Doll make-up range, at the helm, the show will recognise the increasing influence popstars have on mainstream trends.

With her world-class reputation and passion for style, Rihanna is perfectly placed to find an aspiring designer worthy of the chance to break into the hugely competitive world of fashion. Tasking Nicola with fronting the search, Rihanna will be heavily responsible for casting and will be involved in editing post-production.

Rihanna – who has sold 20 million albums – will also be hands-on as the programme showcases Britain’s most promising fashion designers. Over ten weeks the unknown designers will be challenged by Rihanna and Nicola to create outfits for a string of musicians and celebrities.

Leoness Lewise's Album DELAYED !!!!

Leona Lewis has delayed the release of her third studio album for a second time.

The singer was originally set to put out her next LP Glassheart in November 2011, before it was confirmed that a new expected release date would be March 2012.

However, Amazon now lists Lewis's upcoming collection with a November 26, 2012 release date, meaning fans will have to wait 11 months for new material.

The star released her 'Hurt' EP online just before Christmas as a treat for fans who have been waiting for new music and to bridge the gap between her previous album Echo and Glassheart.

Lewis previously told Digital Spy that she has been working with Fraser T Smith and has also teamed up with Calvin Harris for a new track.

Kelly Clarkson's track sales get 'Stronger' by the week

Now we know: Mr. Know It All was just the set-up for Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You). Kelly Clarkson's new single sold 174,000 copies last week -- a 49% increase in its weekly sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan -- making it the third-most-downloaded single last week, after David Guetta and Nicki Minaj's Turn Me On and Adele's Set Fire to the Rain. And, like Kelly's Stronger album, it also passed the half-million sales mark last week. In other words, it's turning into a big ol' hit.

now #1



Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" roars into the Hot 100's top 10 (21-8) on the strength of an 11-3 vault on Digital Songs (175,000, up 48%) and a 71-44 flight on Radio Songs (29 million, up 73%). With "Mr. Know It All," the first single from her album "Stronger," having peaked at No. 10, Clarkson posts her first back-to-back Hot 100 top 10s (excluding last month's "I'll Be Home for Christmas," which was not actively promoted to radio) since the first four singles from her album "Breakaway" hit the top tier consecutively in 2004-05.

Longtime Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak says he used to host the popular game show drunk. "When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things," Sajak tells Dan Le Batard of "Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable." "We had a different show then."

The 65-year-old, who has hosted Wheel of Fortune since 1981, says he and right-hand woman Vanna White used to go to a local Mexican restaurant in Burbank during their two-and-a-half hour dinner breaks. That break gave the duo more than enough time to knock a couple margaritas back before the night tapings. "Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They're really great tapes to get a hold of," Sajak said. "I had a great time. I have no idea if the shows were any good, but no one said anything, so I guess I did OK."

Unfortunately, margaritas — or any sort of alcohol for that matter — no longer play a part in Sajak's hosting routine. "I would be hesitant to have anything to drink now," he said. What a _arty _oo_er

Netflix abandons video game rental plans

Netflix will not expand into renting video games, marking the final end of the disastrous Qwikster experiment. CEO Reed Hastings just confirmed to investors that his company no longer plans to rent games, a strategy that was first announced in September as part of the planned Qwikster DVDs-by-mail business spinoff. That split was then canceled after massive public outcry, but it had appeared the video games plan was still on the table. Not so anymore. We're not sure why renting games made sense for Qwikster but not Netflix as a whole, but then again, we're not sure anything about Qwikster ever made sense. We're also not sure Netflix has followed through on a single plan it's made in the last six months.


Demi Moore Drops Out of 'Lovelace' Due To Health Concerns

Another biopic about famed porn star Linda Lovelace has gotten waylaid over casting.

Demi Moore had been slated to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the movie "Lovelace," but dropped out Wednesday amid her emergency hospitalization for what her rep described as "exhaustion."

"We can advise she is no longer doing the movie," publicist Carrie Gordon confirmed to the Daily News.

“Lovelace,” which stars Amanda Seyfried in the title role, tells the story of the actress behind "Deep Throat," the 1972 X-rated film that birthed the modern adult film industry and ignited a nationwide anti-obscenity campaign.

Rival Lovelace project, "Inferno," famously got burned after waiting for Lindsay Lohan to sort out her legal troubles got in the way.

"Lindsay has realized that in order to get her life and career back on track, she has to be very selective with her projects," the insider says. "She wants to pursue projects like the ones that made her successful....She also realizes that she doesn't need to identify with roles that relate to issues she dealt with. Everyone on her treatment team has stressed that."

Malin Akerman was tapped to replace Lohan in "Inferno."

"Lovelace," which began shooting in December, did get one major addition Wednesday with the announcement that Chloe Sevigny was joining the cast.

We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot.

Cynthia Nixon: “Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals”

Yesterday there was a lot of debate over comments that Cynthia Nixon made to the NY Times in which she asserted that it was her “choice” to be gay.

Well Cynthia did make the distinction that her comments only applied to her situation, and I thought she made a good case. She said, in part, “they said [the remarks in a speech I made imply] that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me.” Fair enough, but a lot of people wonder why Cynthia doesn’t self identify as bisexual if she feels that it’s her “choice” to be with a woman instead of a man. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Cynthia kind-of explains that.

You’ve been quoted as saying about these two relationships in your life: “In terms of sexual orientation, I don’t really feel I’ve changed … I’ve been with men all my life and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.” I’m a bit confused. Were you a lesbian in a heterosexual relationship? Or are you now a heterosexual in a lesbian relationship? That quote seemed like you were fudging a bit.

It’s so not fudging. It’s so not. I think for gay people who feel 100 percent gay, it doesn’t make any sense. And for straight people who feel 100 percent straight, it doesn’t make any sense. I don’t pull out the “bisexual” word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.

But it is the “B” in LGBT.

CN: I know. But we get no respect

You just said “we,” so you must self-identify as one.

I just don’t like to pull out that word. But I do completely feel that when I was in relationships with men, I was in love and in lust with those men. And then I met Christine and I fell in love and lust with her. I am completely the same person and I was not walking around in some kind of fog. I just responded to the people in front of me the way I truly felt…

Look, I understand for political reasons why some people want to kind of squelch this idea that being gay might be a choice, because a lot of the rights we want are posited on the supposition that why are you denying me my rights any more than if I were created a different color? But I don’t feel the need to cede the definition of what a gay person is to the bigots. They don’t get to define who I am.

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale Marriage On The Rocks Says New Report

Secret affairs, a love child, jealousy and more send the 10 year marriage into crisis?

Poor Gwen! Her husband’s dark past and infidelities have lead her to reach a breaking point in love, according to a new report in Star magazine.

Gwen Stefani, 42, and Gavin Rossdale, 46, have been in and out of couple’s therapy trying to repair their marriage, but a source tells the mag that divorce is “inevitable.” And Gwen’s brother, Eric Stefani, 44, also agrees that divorce is possible, according to the new report.

“He’s just not been honest with her about his past,” another source tells the mag.

Two years into the marriage Gwen was hit with Gavin’s first secret — that he had a daughter, Daisy Lowe, now 22, by his ex-girlfriend song-writer/designer Pearl Lowe. And then began the rumors about Gavin’s affairs. In 2009, 80s cross-dresser Peter Robinson — famously known as Marilyn — revealed he had had a short fling with Gavin, before he married Gwen. And in 2010, Gavin confirmed the affair in an interview with Details magazine claiming it was a one-time experimentation when he was 17-years-old.

Kylie Minogue puts a new spin on old hits

Kylie Minogue is celebrating 25 years as a pop star by revisiting some of her old songs.

The singer, who released her debut single The Loco-Motion in 1987, has recorded a new acoustic version of her 1992 hit Finer Feelings at the Abbey Road studios in London. She will be releasing more new recordings of her songs during the year.

A source said last night: “She’s really excited about revisiting some of her earliest hits. She’s got a lot of younger fans who have never even heard some of her most iconic songs.”

Kylie, 43, who first found fame as Charlene in Neighbours, received an OBE in 2008 in recognition of a career that has seen her sell millions of albums.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and had surgery and chemotherapy, before getting the all-clear in 2006.

Adele's '21' - Biggest No. 1 Album Since 'Bodyguard'

It seems that every week, there is a new Adele-related accolade to tout.

And this week is no different, as her "21" album hits its 17th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart (95,000; down 9%). "21" has been No. 1 longer than any other album since "The Bodyguard" soundtrack wrapped a 20-week run at No. 1 on the chart dated May 29, 1993.

Could "21" hold on another week at the top? That all depends on how new albums from Tim McGraw ("Emotional Traffic"), Celtic Woman ("Believe") and Kellie Pickler ("100 Proof") -- among others -- sell this week. Also new to market: the "2012 Grammy Nominees" compilation.
