Is There a New Aaliyah Album in the Works?

Could Aaliyah have a new album 11 years after her death?

The blogosphere is buzzing with the news of a posthumous album after music producer Jeffrey "J.Dub" Walker, who worked with the late singer, tweeted some surprising details: "The smash unreleased song called "Steady Ground" I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album," he wrote, minutes before deleting the tweet.

Walker had a hand in Aaliyah's success by producing several songs on her 2001 self-titled album.

The singer died suddenly in a plane crash leaving the Bahamas in August of that same year. This past August marked the 10th year anniversary of her death and celebrity friends like Missy Elliot shared their remembrances. “Aaliyah, till this very day you are still in your own lane," tweeted Elliot.


Ugh I miss this inspirational goddess :( RIP Queen Akasha baby girl.
What's your favorite Aaliyah track, ONTD?

"Hollywood Needs to Wake Up!"

Today, in an open letter, Russell Simmons shared his feelings on the Academy Awards, race, and Hollywood. "Someone needs to take the pin out of the Hollywood bubble, just as they have done within the music industry and the advertising world," he wrote on Global Grind.

In its essence, he claims there's a huge disconnect between Hollywood and its audience.

"No disrespect to the winners, but the consensus seemed to be that the audience felt left out," the letter reads. "White bread had gone moldy stale. The sad part is it doesn't have to be this way. Hollywood is just misinformed because those who run it are isolated from their consumers."

Could he be on to something?

Flawless Alien Running for President


Roger Smith wrote a blog for the Huffington Post responding to questions about his bid for presidency. Here's what he had to say:


BIGISLANDER: But is Roger a "natural-born citizen"?

ROGER: Why, I am offended! What, I had to squeeze through a stubborn birth canal just to run for president? I'll have you know, many quality Americans were born by C-section! Ronald Reagan? C-section. Forest Whitaker? C-section. All of my dog's puppies? C-section. I'll admit I got a little impatient. I just really love puppies.

MARILYN O'BRIEN PIPIA: living in florida born in new york city were do they deport me to back to new york i need a coat then. do they have coat stamps?

ROGER: trying to read this having some problems but I catch your drift and if you can't sew your own coat and/or hire your own Chinese workforce then what kind of American are you?

SHAKYLEGS: Now we're getting somewhere, by someone who is an analytical genius. Deport the poor. It can be done, we just need a country to send them to. But which country? I propose the U.S. buy Greenland! it is a huge subcontinent with hardly any people living there.

ROGER: First of all: "Subcontinent"? Racist. Greenland is as much a continent as any other country. Second of all, "Deport the Poor" is not meant to determine people's futures. Once you're off red, white, and blue soil, you're free to chart your own course because you are an American! I mean, not any more you're not, but you can still pull yourself up by your own bootstraps and find a new land! Okay, we're taking your boots. But good luck anyway. Write if you get work. And not before.

Rihanna's Dad Told Her To Diet

Rihanna's dad told her to lose weight - because she was getting ''too fat''.

The 'You Da One' singer has recently shed a quite a few pounds and her father, Ronald Fenty, believes he was the one who inspired her after telling her she looked fat.

Ronald - who has a turbulent relationship with his famous daughter - said: ''I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her.

''But when I saw her at this year's Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, 'Robyn,
[Rihanna's first name], you're getting too fat.' But I think she's fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She's dieting, she's working out.''

Ronald also revealed how he is fine with the fact Rihanna may have rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, despite him being convicted of assaulting her in 2009.

He told heat magazine: ''Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life - God knows how many I've made. She's her own woman now.''

Megan Fox Trying to ‘Will Away’ Marilyn Monroe Tattoo

Marilyn Monroe may be in this season, but Megan Fox wants her gone.

The actress — who’s “over” the Monroe tattoo she’s had on her right forearm for the last several years — is in the process of removing the ink, but admits it’s slow-going. Asked when her tattoo will be gone, she told PEOPLE, “When I have the nerve to go and get my next laser treatment.”

Speaking to reporters in New York Monday night at the People StyleWatch and Cinema Society screening of her new film, Friends with Kids, she said that the tattoo removal process (she’s been to one session so far) is “extremely painful.”

Luckily, she has someone who feels her pain: husband Brian Austin Green. “We’re both removing tattoos that we don’t necessarily need anymore,” he shared. “It sucks — it’s not fun at all.”

Fox has covered her ink with makeup when shooting films in recent months, but she’s also experimented with an alternative removal system, as well. “I’m trying to absorb the ink just through willpower, trying to make it go away on its own,” she joked. “And it’s kind of working!”

Rupert Grint, Michelle Dockery, Stephen Fry, and Julie Walters in tourism campaign by VisitEngland

'Holidays at Home are GREAT' is the biggest ever domestic tourism campaign aimed at boosting tourism throughout the UK.

Stephen Fry, Julie Walters, Rupert Grint and Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary) will star in a new TV ad which will hit screens from 8 March encouraging people to visit a website offering 20.12 per cent discounts on accommodation, restaurants, attractions and transport around the country.

The £5 million campaign, led by VisitEngland and supported by the tourist boards of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, will showcase the country and highlight the key events taking place this year.

“2012 is going to be a year like no other in our history, with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the Olympics,” Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said. “With so much going on, this is the perfect time to make the most of the UK and take your holiday here.”

James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive, said: “We have thousands of offers up and down the country, which means a family can enjoy great deals on accommodation, meals and tickets to attractions at very affordable prices. Now is the time to holiday at home – there is no comparison anywhere else in the world with what’s on offer here in the UK this year.”

Snooki: Pregnant and Engaged!

It’s official – Snooki is pregnant and engaged!

The 24-year-old pint sized Jersey Shore star and her sweetheart of a year and a half, Jionni LaValle, are expecting a baby later this year.

“I have different priorities now, Snooki told Us Weekly. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

“We are not going to screw this up,” Jionni added.

Snooki is 15 weeks along and first found out that she was pregnant right after New Year’s. She and Jersey Shore co-star J-Woww are currently filming a reality show of their own in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Congrats to Snooki and Jionni!

Enrique Iglesias Reveals Why He Won’t Marry His Girlfriend Of 11 Years

They may one of the rare long-lasting and relatively low drama celebrity couples, but singer Enrique Iglesias and his girlfriend, tennis player Anna Kournikova, won't be exchanging rings any time soon, if ever.

In a recent interview with Parade, the 36-year-old Latin singer explained why he called Kournikova his "wife" at a concert in Russia last year, yet hasn't popped the big question. He told the magazine, "It was just meant to be sweet in the moment. I honestly didn't mean to confuse people. I thought it'd be easier for the audience to understand than if I said "my girl."

But why not make an honest woman out of Kournikova after dating for 11 years? Iglesias admitted, "I've never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it's because I come from divorced parents, but I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. And nowadays, it's not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you're a good parent, period."

In that case, could children be coming sooner than marriage for the superstar pair? The couple first met when Iglesias hand-picked Kournikova, then 20, to play his love interest in his incredibly steamy 2001 music video for "Escape". Since then, there have been multiple rumors of secret marriage and separation, but despite whatever really happened, the couple is still together today.

So it doesn't sound like there will be any invites to an Iglesias-Kournikova wedding, at least in the near future. But with the slew of messy celebrity divorces in the headlines nowadays (for relationships lasting a mere fraction of Iglesias and Kournikova's), perhaps not making the big leap is a safer move for the happy couple. Why mess with success?

Should Enrique Iglesias ask Anna Kournikova to marry him?

CARNIVALE Creator Daniel Knauf Explains New Internet Project + Contest

We've been ranting and raving about the new project from Daniel Knauf, Bxx: Haunted, for over a month now, and if you're at all acquainted with the series he did for HBO, "Carnivale", then you're likely to be pretty excited as well. Now we have your chance to go beyond excitement.

Are you an aspiring digital FX artist? How would you like to get a shot at scoring a line-credit on the latest project by Daniel Knauf, the creator of cult TV sensation "Carnivale"? That's right, kids. Now YOU can join in on the madness! We'll let Daniel take it from here...

"We have a single shot in which a man is bludgeoned to death with a monkeywrench," explains Knauf, "It's captured from four angles. We did the digital blood effects inhouse. Though they were passable, they weren't great. So I thought, hey, Bxx is an Internet project, crowd-funded and sourced since inception. So let's crowd-source the fucker!"

Knauf ran the idea past us, and we agreed it was a grand idea. And thus was born "The Great Kill the Crap Out of Mr. Blaylock and Snag a Credit Contest".

For his first work in this new format, Knauf chose to tell the story of a paranormal investigation gone very, very wrong. Six people, one house, 48 hours. What will happen?

Two new Andrew G. Interviews

NEW YORK -- In the last months before he becomes a household name, Andrew Garfield has decided to hide in plain sight.

The British-raised actor, who will star in the reboot of the "Spider-Man" films this summer, is far from Hollywood but still under the lights: He's starring opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman in a revival of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" on Broadway.

Having spoken to his predecessor, Tobey Maguire, about what it's like to be at the center of a white-hot franchise, the 28-year-old actor is enjoying a little me-time in anticipation of the media mayhem to come.

NEW YORK – The first thing that Andrew Garfield does after greeting a reporter is apologize. For eating a bagel.

It hardly seems like a transgression for the rising actor, now in previews for a new Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, to grab a bite while squeezing an interview into his hectic schedule. But for Garfield, 28, good manners are not to be taken lightly.

ETA: Usually, Andrew seems like a nice guy, but he doesn't really come across that way in these interviews. Maybe fame is getting to him?

Nikki Reed continues one-woman crusade to make her husband relevant

Paul McDonald Hoping To Pen A 'Twilight' Song
Nikki Reed's 'American Idol'-alum husband wants to submit songs for 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' soundtrack consideration.

Newlyweds Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald gave MTV News an exclusive look at their latest labor of love on Tuesday — the video for their first musical collaboration, "Now That I've Found You." And while "Twilight" star Reed didn't necessarily see the sweet ditty ending up on the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" soundtrack, she did reveal that husband McDonald is in the early stages of submitting a song for potential inclusion in the saga's final installment.

"Paul has been speaking with them about potentially attempting to write something," Reed said. "Nothing is set in stone. He will be working on songs to submit. It would be a great, great thing. The music supervisor [Alexandra Patsavas] on that, as well as [director] Bill Condon, have great taste."

"It's very preliminary," McDonald confirmed. "It's kind of one of those things. I write all the time."

Over the past four years, the "Twilight Saga" soundtracks have gained a reputation for catapulting artists to new heights, with acts like Paramore, Christina Perri and Joy Formidable all benefiting from their confab with the Cullen clan. And as the former "American Idol" contestant looks to join that auspicious group, he's beginning by doing his homework.

"I watched some of the movies the other day," he said. "I hadn't gotten around to watching all of them, so I'm getting familiar with the story lines."

"He's trying to say he wasn't a Twi-hard before knowing me," Reed teased.

Included in his prep work will likely be an artist's screening of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," which doesn't hit theaters until November 16. In the meantime, McDonald is working on his album, which he expects to drop early this fall.

Emma Stone's Interview for S Magazine

HOLLYWOOD can't get enough of Emma Stone - but the young star of The Help still reckons she has everything to learn.

The only thing that’s gone to Emma Stone’s pretty blonde head is a bottle of red hair dye. Ask about her stellar status as Hollywood’s go-to girl in everything from comedies and dramas to superhero capers, and she’s none too bothered. “Don’t put the farm on it,” she says. “Success is such a fleeting thing. I’ve seen how the careers of people I look up to ebb and flow, so I don’t get carried away by it.”

Taylor Kitsch GQ March 2012

Taylor Made for Texas

Taylor Kitsch parlayed a memorable stint on Friday Night Lights into two Texas-sized leading roles in John Carter and Battleship. The former Tim Riggins talks about a momentous year and his adopted Lone Star state of mind.

title or description

They do things big in Texas, and now so does Taylor Kitsch. Perhaps those four years shooting Friday Night Lights in Austin rubbed off, but the actor is taking a giant leap from ensemble parts to leading-man roles in two ginormous (as in budgeted over $200 million) films: March's Martian epic John Carter and May's big-things-blowing-up blockbuster Battleship, co-starring Liam Neeson and Rihanna. His smallest film? Oliver Stone's drug cartel crime film The Savages. "This year is really make-or-break," Kitsch concedes. John Carter, directed by Pixar genius Andrew Stanton (Wall-E), stars Kitsch as a Confederate soldier zapped to Mars. (The character is from a 1912 Edgar Rice Burroughs serial that George Lucas has said inspired Star Wars.) Battleship transforms the board game into an alien invasion on the high seas—one of those so-inane-it-might-work ideas, especially in the hands of director Peter Berg, creator of Friday Night Lights." Off-camera, the Canadian actor is making like Tim Riggins and staying in Texas, where he's building his dream house in Austin. "Texas forever," drawls Kitsch, reprising his Friday Night Lights money line. "It looks like it's going to be that way, too." We spoke to Kitsch about his three films, his new home, and his patented shoelace-tying technique, which may just change your life.

title or description

GQ: Are there other Texan things you've gotten into?
Taylor Kitsch: I've always been a big country guy. There's a lot of Texas artists—Randy Rogers, of course, and Pat Green come to mind. There's some watering holes within Austin I love. A good old rodeo never hurt anyone. And those Texas sunsets... I work a lot in Africa: Texas and Africa have the best sunsets on the planet, that I've ever seen.

GQ: Is that why you're settling in Austin and building a house there? Why not L.A.?
Taylor Kitsch: Oh, God, I could give you a million reasons why not L.A. I know actors that love the celebrity. For me, it's tough because you're doing six months of press. That's why you put all the work in and almost fucking kill yourself, because if you've got to talk about it a million times, you'd better be proud. And I can't work. I lost a job that I wish I could have been a part of—three scenes in a character-driven movie that I'd murder to be a part of. But you sound like you're playing the violin when you say it. Relationships and friends go to the wayside. You get angry because it's press that's pulling you and not the work. And how do you fucking build a relationship with a gal that you care for and say, "Hey, I'm going to be gone for eight weeks. I expect you to have the same feelings as right now in eight weeks. But I'll be in Japan, Russia, Spain..." You can't expect it. It's unfair. I think I chose to build in Austin because, in Austin, I can come and escape and be myself.

justin bieber's mom capitalizing on his fame, writing a tell-all book

Her son is prepping his second photo book, but Pattie Mallette, mother of international pop sensation Justin Bieber, is planning something far more revealing — an intimate memoir about her difficult youth and how she turned it all around when she became pregnant with Justin.

Billboard reports Mallette has inked a deal with Christian book publisher Revell to open up about her traumatic upbringing, which included violence, substance abuse and a suicide attempt at age 17.

"Pattie's story is a powerful example of courage and determination that will inspire anyone who has faced struggles in life," Revell editorial director Jennifer Leep said in a statement. "She's living proof that even in the darkest of places, there is always room for hope."

Mallette intends her story to inspire women suffering through similarly difficult circumstances, saying, "I want them to see that no matter how desperate their circumstances may be, they can have hope for a better future."

The memoir will be released in September, the same month her son will drop his second photo book, "Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started." Bieber's first book, "First Step 2 Forever: My Story," was released in October 2010 and has sold more than 1 million copies in 25 languages.

'Holland's Next Top Model' wins agency lawsuit - dropped for having "hips too large"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A former winner of the television show "Holland's Next Top Model" has won a lawsuit against Elite Model Management after she was dropped for having hips the agency considered too large.
The Amsterdam District Court ruled Wednesday that Ananda Marchildon, now 25, was entitled to the main prize she won in the 2008 production of the show, a three-year contract worth euro75,000 ($98,500).

Marchildon argued she was dismissed after only euro10,000 ($13,000) worth of work because she didn't lose enough weight to please the agency. According to the written ruling, though Marchildon had gained weight since getting the contract, she had a hip measurement of 92 centimeters (about 36.2 inches) when she won, and Elite could not demand that she go down to 90 centimeters — about 35.4 inches. That is far smaller than the average woman's hips but not unusual in the modeling world.

Torso found in canal might be missing 'EastEnders' actress Gemma McCluskie

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A man has been arrested after the torso of a female was found in a London canal, local media reported Wednesday.

The body, found Tuesday in Regents Canal, is feared to be that of missing TV actress Gemma McCluskie, 29, and the man arrested is believed to be her brother Tony McCluskie, the BBC reported.

"At this early stage officers believe they know the identity of the victim but must await further forensic tests before formal identification can take place," a police spokeswoman told the Guardian.

The Guardian said that the arms, legs and head of the unclothed body had been hacked off before it was discovered.

McCluskie, who vanished on March 1, appeared on "EastEnders," as Kerry Skinner in 2001.


Kween Keri To Headline FX's "The Americans"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
One of pilot season’s hottest properties is officially off the market.

Keri Russell has landed the female lead in FX’s The Americans, an hour-long drama pilot from Joe Weisberg (Falling Skies) and Graham Yost (Justified).

The ambitious project is set in the early ’80s and centers on two KGB spies, Phillip and Elizabeth (Russell), posing as married Americans in suburban Washington, DC. Despite their arranged union, the couple’s bond grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War. Complicating their relationship further is Phillip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life and the couple’s two children, who know nothing about their parents’ true identity.

Casting continues for Russell’s onscreen hubby.

Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) is directing the pilot.

Maxim Magazine Still Exists, and So Does Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt, who stars as a Texas wife and mother who becomes a happy ending massage therapist to support her family in the Lifetime series The Client List premiering next month, makes her fourth appearance on the cover of Maxim with its April issue. The interview is nearly as revealing as the bra-and-panties photo shoot. A few highlights:

• She knows her best feature: “It’s horrible to say, but I like my boobs. They’ve always served me well. They’re good.”

• She’s a multi-tasker: “Pole dancing. It’s a great way to stay in touch with your sexuality. I also love to cook, so I can have a cake in the oven while I do a pole dance.” (How is she currently single?)

• She’s not immune to an awesomely bad pickup line: “Well, I did get one that was so bad I gave the guy 10 minutes of my time. He was like, ‘Are you Irish? ’Cause my penis is Dublin.’ It was so stupid, but I thought it took some wit at least.” (Oh, that’s why.)

• She still vagazzles, and was, in fact, vagazzled for the Maxim shoot: “The fun part of being a girl is that there are little beauty things you can do to make yourself feel special. I can walk around all day and think, Nobody has any idea that I have a sparkly secret in my pants right now.”

A promo for The Client List:

kelly clarkson grants fun. their first #1

Deciding that she had had enough of being #1 and that she would not emulate other #1 hogs, Kelly Clarkson sabotages "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)", which slips down 1-2 after three non-consecutive weeks at the Hot 100's summit.

"Stronger" benevolently retreats 2-3 on Digital Songs (197,000, down 18%), although it pushes 3-2 on Radio Songs (116 million, up 7%). The song becomes Clarkson's fourth No. 1 on Adult Pop Songs (2-1).

With its coronation, fun. becomes the first multi-member rock band to conquer the Hot 100 with its first entry on the chart since Nickelback arrived with its four-week No. 1 "How You Remind Me" in December 2001/January 2002. The song went on to become Billboard's top title of 2002. (Electronic/alternative act Owl City ruled the Hot 100 with debut single "Fireflies" in 2009, but the name served as an alias for its only member, Adam Young). fun. becomes the first rock band in more than a decade to send a debut Billboard Hot 100 hit to No. 1, as "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae, ascends 3-1.

The song spends a third week atop the Digital Songs chart with 302,000 downloads sold (up 19%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. The track claims the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award, as it bounds 61-41 in its second week on Radio Songs (30 million, up 60%, according to Nielsen BDS). "Young" rises 3-2 on the Alternative Songs radio airplay chart and roars in as the top debut on Pop Songs (No. 24) and Adult Pop Songs (No. 33).

Until this week, no rock group had led at all since Coldplay topped the June 28, 2008, Hot 100 with "Viva La Vida."

Apple unveils 'new iPad,' heralds the 'the post-PC revolution'

Today was a huge moment for Apple as CEO Tim Cook took the stage at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to announced Apple’s latest riff on the “revolutionary” iPad. It was the first announcement since Apple founder Steve Jobs’ passing in October (just a day after Apple iPhone 4S announcement), and Cook, joined by marketing chief Philip Schiller, did not spare the drama as he touted the company’s “post-PC revolution.”

“We think the iPad is the poster-child of the post-PC world,” said Cook in his introduction. “When we set out to create the iPad, we set out to create not just a new product, but a new category.” With LTE download speeds, retina display, HD video recording, and more, the iPad (on sale March 16) may just live up to its promise.

VH1 Announces Official 'Mob Wives Chicago' Cast

Chicago’s mob scene is about to get the VH1 treatment.

The network announced the official cast on Wednesday for its Mob Wives spinoff, Mob Wives Chicago. It will premiere this spring.

According to the release, the series will follow the lives of five women who are “allegedly” (to quote Mob Wives star Renee Graziano, “What mob?”) connected to the Windy City’s distinct mob group, “The Outfit.”

Distinct from the five families that run New York City’s mafia scene, Chicago’s mob syndicate dates back to the 1910s. Its best-known leader is Al Capone. “The Outfit” is known to have control not only in Chicago, but also in cities in neighboring states and across the Midwest with satellite families reaching into California.

The original Mob Wives is currently airing its second season Sundays at 8 p.m.

Created and produced by Jennifer Graziano of JustJenn Productions, Mob Wives is produced by The Weinstein Company, Electus, and Left/Right. Executive producers for VH1 include Shelly Tatro, Kari McFarland, Rick Hankey and Jeff Olde. Sean Gottlieb serves as supervising producer for VH1.

Here’s the official cast descriptions for Mob Wives Chicago according to VH1’s release.

It doesn't sound very likely, but on Tuesday, the left-leaning "Real Time" host took to Twitter to call out liberals for their continuous criticism of Limbaugh, who recently apologized for calling Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and "prostitute."

The comedian was referring to an incident late last year, when his tweet about Tim Tebow, led to calls for a boycott of HBO, which airs Maher's show.

Maher's latest tweet comes as sponsors continue to pull ads from Limbaugh's show. More than 30 national and local advertisers have yanked spots from Limbaugh's syndicated radio show following the fallout over his remarks.

The controversy all started during Fluke's testimony at a February hearing about contraceptive mandates and U.S. health insurance. On Feb. 29, Limbaugh said, "She [Fluke] wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."

The conservative broadcaster has since offered a mea culpa for his "insulting choice of words," but many, including Fluke, have yet to accept it. Fluke, who spoke out in favor of President Obama's birth control policy, has called Limbaugh's apology "insufficient."

Blind Items

My Day as a One-Act Play: The role of maddyPWNSj00 will be played by the cat. Everyone calling me at work will be played by the dog

1. She’s not a regular Mom. She’s a cool Mom! When her daughter has a gig, she doesn’t just show up and clap. She parties hard with her daughter’s friends until the wee hours of the morning. And when Mom’s partying, she and her mouth get totally out of control. On a bender last week – and while her daughter was on the other side of the room – she regaled a large group of people with the most intimate and disgusting details of her daughter’s sexual conquests. She told stories about a famous singer who thought her daughter was beautiful (“He likes to take the virginity of his groupies!”), an heir to a family fortune (“Good thing he has a handsome face, because his penis is really small!), and a slimy actor (“He likes the back door, and he said that [my daughter] was the best sex he’s ever had… and he’s had everybody!”). It’s nice to see a Mom so proud of her her little princess. Blind Gossip
My Guess: Dina Lohan being an idiot bragging about Lindsay banging Aaron Carter, Harry Morton, and Wilmer "life ruiner" Valderama

2. This could turn out to be a tweener catfight. You know even , when you are a tweener, there are apparently jealousies and lots and lots of sexual backstabbing. So, this former A list female tweener (No Love)has not said two words directly to this also former A list female tweener (Not So Innocent)since despite having to sometimes work together. It all goes back to when they both were on the same network. No Love used to hate how goody goody Not So Innocent was or at least pretended to be. Turns out that Not So Innocent was the queen of the quickie when it came to oral and No Love felt like Not So Innocent should have the horrible reputation. So, whenever Not So Innocent liked some guy, that is who No Love went after. It is how she ended up with her long term relationship which just ended. Of course No Love ended up looking trashy during that too which killed her because she waited forever before she even had sex with the boyfriend while Not So Innocent was with anyone and everyone. If not for the fact one of these tweeners is not a fan of women, she would have probably had the whole family. Not So Innocent’s current boyfriend was deciding between No Love and Not So Innocent at one point, but No Love, as much as she hates Not So Innocent, could not stop laughing everytime this current A list tweener opened his mouth to speak. So, he made his second choice. Well, actually third, because his second choice ended up in rehab after they had sex. CDAN
My Guess: Queen Miley is No Love, Selena Gomez is Not So Innocent, Justin Bieber is the A-list tweener who Miley was like "LOL NO" at, and Demi was his first choice.

3. There is much concern for this actress. She has always liked to “party”, but all of her friends which used to go on vacation with her and snort up that Colombian Marching Powder first thing in the morning, knocked back with a shot of tequila, have since grown up and moved on. The problem is, she hasn’t. In fact, she’s desperately looking for a “party” with anyone she can find it. Perhaps, she can’t deal with the notion that her great love has found happiness. But she is making stupid decisions, and her most recent hook-up has been known to go on 48-hour coke binges….and turns violent. Expect a checked into rehab statement any day soon. Celebzter
My Guess: Cameron Diaz drowning and snorting her sorrows since JT is engaged to Jessica Biel and she hooked up with Doo Diddy P Daddy Doodle

4. Which B list always movie actress was introduced to coke by her sisters who are also famous. Their favorite game was watching their not even teen sister get high on coke. That turned into an addiction which turned into a nose job. A not very good one, but her acting career has not suffered. CDAN
My Guess: Elizabeth Olsen

5. What A-list actress, who’s currently going through legal battles with her partner, has actually asked friends to make untruthful and damaging claims about her ex? Apparently she wants him out of the picture so she can move out of the country. CDAN
My Guess: Halle Berry

6. This newest celebrity who is only famous for being famous, (and really only became so because of the internet) is constantly hatching plans to stay in the limelight. Don’t worry fans, she’s got a sex tape all cooked up and coming your way! Buzz Foto
My Guess: I wanna say Courtney Stodden....except that would be a felony

Lindsay Lohan for muppets sequal?

Lindsay Lohan could very well be getting her career comeback — thanks to Miss Piggy!
The troubled star is said to be going after a role in the next Muppet movie in the hope it will help rebuild her shattered reputation.

“Lindsay has been mentioned as a possible cameo in the next movie but she would love it to be more,” reveals a source close to the former child star.
“She’s a huge fan of the Muppets and would love to play a significant part in their next project. She has a great idea that involves she and Miss Piggy meeting in rehab!”

Lohan recently admitted she’s made some bad decisions.

“I regret the choices that I’ve made, but I’m grateful for where I am today because of them,” she said.

“I don’t need to see any more negative stuff, I don’t need to put myself in those places anymore.

“It’s been a learning experience and I’m glad that I experienced it. I’m grateful that I’ve learned from it. It’s helped me, it’s humbling.”

Best Coast to release The Only Place on May 15

It took all we had not to kill our super-chilled-out-beach-hair-cool vibes when we heard that the powerhouse known as Best Coast (the only band we know of managed by a cat named Snacks) aired the exciting news that their next album will arrive on May 15 through Mexican Summer. Entitled The Only Place, the sophomore effort is produced by Jon Brion and its cover art features a big ol’ bear cradling the 4:20-friendly state that is California.

The cuddly feelings you get when you see the art are sure to carry over to the album itself, as singer Bethany Cosentino describes it as “seriously emo.” Previously released tracks “How They Want Me to Be,” “Dreaming My Life Away,” and “Up All Night” are all included on the upcoming full-length. If that’s not enough Best Coast for you, well, luckily you can you spend your summer chillaxxxed the fuck out, then get off your stoned ass to make it to one of Best Coast’s tour stops.

good news, naomi: bald patches are in!!

FIRST Kim Kardashian shocked onlookers when she arrived at Paris Fashion Week with a noticeable bald patch, now our very own Nicole Kidman has been spotted with one as well. Both A-Listers were snapped by paparazzi within days of each other and were shown with thinning hair.

The perennially groomed 31-year-old reality star was seen with a thinning patch at the side of her head. Kardashian, who is known for shelling out thousands for her long brown hair extensions, appears to be paying a high price for her hair styling regime. Nicole Kidman showed off a noticeable thin patch on the side of her head as she arrived at Los Angeles Airport today. The red-haired actress, who carried her own two bags to a waiting limousine, had her hair tied back with a clip giving onlookers a glimpse of a thinning patch.

Today is "Sailor Moon"'s 20th anniversary (as you probably guessed from the title). The show debuted March 7, 1992. SM saw a resurgence in popularity last year, with the new manga comic collections being released bimonthly in English, and the video game. The owners are still taking suggestions as to what to do next with the series.  Post your ideas and desires in the comments!

Ideas thrown around: Re-dub the entire series (producers actually passed around this possibility at a convention to fans two years ago, asking them to vote on it), a total revamp as to follow the manga comics, a Blu-ray set, streaming over Netflix, Hulu, etc.

Fans are rewatching the entire series in celebration today!  I know everyone shits all over the English dubbed version, but for some reason I like it.  It has a cute, slight corniness about it.  They removed all the lesbianism of the original in it though. >:(  Ya know, think of the children!!!

Did ya know that Italian psychologists have found that Sailor Moon can turn you into a bunch of homos like a boss?

Yoko Ono Dismisses Rumors of Eating Disorder

Yoko Ono is now speaking out against recent claims that her late husband, former Beatle John Lennon, suffered from bulimia.

A new book is alleging the late rocker obsessed over “forbidden foods,” and countered the guilt he felt for eating them by purging. His widow says this is simply not true, stating he merely he indulged himself from time to time.

"John did not have an eating disorcer," Ono tells the U.K.'s Mirror, "Sometimes he slipped and ate a bar of chocolate."

The self-published book, titled, “BackStage Pass VIP,” was written by Debra Sharon Davis, and is a provocative take on the personal sides of celebrities and rock musicians. In addition to Lennon, it includes stories about Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin and George Harrison.

According to Davis, Lennon was able to hide his eating disorder for so long because he was surrounded by musicians who were struggling with their own dependencies, namely alcohol and drugs.

“It was hard for them to see Lennon’s purging behavior as extraordinary,” Davis told RadarOnline. “One must also realize that at that time the public and the media were unaware of bulimia as an addiction and health risk –- which made it all the more frightening for John Lennon. He literally had no point of reference on what he was experiencing.”

Davis specifically mentions Lennon’s devotion to ice cream, saying he loved to put scoops of ice cream on bowls of Rice Krispies cereal.

She also cites an interview she did with the musician's close friend, Harry Nilsson, who died in 1994. Nilsson reportedly observed Lennon’s struggle with discipline and a “ravenous appetite,” telling Davis, “he said food was ‘sacred’ to him and it frightened him. He saw it as ‘a great weakness.’”

Ono, however, says Lennon's relationship with food was healthy, saying, "He was always on a very healthy diet…His diets included vegetarian diet, macrobiotic diet and, very rarely a juice-only diet. All of the above are internationally approved health diets.”

Downton Abbey's Thomas: on breaking into the business, typecasting and the period-drama revival

He appears in Downton Abbey, one of a wave of TV dramas centred on class, and in the Radio Times this week the actor Rob James-Collier was asked whether working-class talent was being squeezed out of the profession. James-Collier was born in Stockport, and defines himself as working class, and his answer was direct. As with so many other jobs at the moment, he said, you have to work for no money when starting out, and "how on earth are you going to finance that" if you don't come from a wealthy background?

His comments tapped into a question that has arisen repeatedly this year. Can anyone but the exceptionally well-heeled, wealthy, connected upper classes now make it in the arts? In acting, in particular, the question was thrown into sharp relief in January, when the shortlist for the Bafta rising star award was announced.

Collapse )

It is also true that a wealthy background probably makes it easier to thrive in this risky business. When it comes to that, nothing changes.

People have been murmuring on this topic for a while, but this article is a nice summation.

On the one hand he's stating the obvious, but on the other TV and film fashions do dictate which actors get cast (or typecast) for certain roles. There seems to be a mini period-revival happening at the moment. Thoughts, ONTD?

Rush Limbaugh's Latest Defense: Rappers And Minorities 'Say Anything They Want'

Rush Limbaugh has managed to cause quite a media frenzy since his offensive comments about law student, Sandra Fluke, have caught the nation's attention. But the controversial radio host, known for his conservative views and sharp tongue has claimed a defense for his actions that might just make more people shake their heads and roll their eyes: rappers do it all the time.

After Limbaugh referred to Fluke as a "slut" and a "prostitute" (in addition to a number of other offensive comments) for advocating that insurance companies cover birth control, he issued an apology saying his words were "insulting." But in response to the continued flight of advertisers from his show--a number that now totals close to a dozen sponsors--he expressed his outrage at his unfair treatment in a culture that has tolerated such language elsewhere, like rap music.

"You talk about a double standard, one of the greatest illustrations of it is that rappers can practically say anything they want about women, and it's called art."

Limbaugh went on to discuss the media and Democratic party's role in the deterioration of morality in society:
Every minority according to the left, every minority in the country is a victim of a tyrannical majority. Every aspect of the Democrat Party agenda is to reverse that, and what's happening here is that everybody is allowing these winds to blow them over. And there's no resistance to it...It's the Democrats and the media that use the power of intimidation to get people to cave on their own morality, to give it up. All for the sake of avoiding confrontation or opposition.

Prometheus Viral Reveals Stunning New Image

(Click Image for HQ)

When the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus dropped in December, one of the most fascinating shots we spotted involved what looked like the space jockey seat rising out of a platform with an extremely tall guy standing off to the right. At that time it was a bit jarring to see, as we were still not 100% sure if Prometheus was an original project or, as rumored, a prequel to Scott's 1979 classic, Alien. Since then, however, those theories have been confirmed, as a new viral video for the film was released featuring Guy Pearce as Sir Peter Weyland, one of the founders of Weyland-Yutani, the corporation at the center of the original Alien franchise. Today that same viral campaign released a new image from the movie - featuring that same platform we saw in that trailer - and boy is it a stunner.

A few hours ago the official Prometheus Twitter account sent out a message urging fans to "invest" in Weyland Industries by heading to the viral homepage and clicking on a link in the top right corner. Apparently this was part of a game that Twitter user @MOVIELORD101 solved and the result was an amazing new still.

Mad TV's Bon Qui Qui Releases First Single 'I'm a Cut You'

The fictional Mad TV character, made famous by comedienne Anjelah Johnson, has released her first music video -- with a surprisingly high production value. The clip, titled “I’m a Cut You,” includes weave pulling, choreographed dance moves and a shot at Antoine Dodson, of “Bed Intruder Song” viral video fame.

The video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday, Feb. 29 and at the time of publication, had amassed a mere 300 views. The video still has potential to go viral, as Johnson’s character has garnered a cult like following online thanks to a 2007 skit called “Bon Qui Qui at King Burger.” The video has garnered 54 million hits on YouTube, featuring the actress repeatedly telling people she would “cut” them, practicing subpar customer service -- to put it mildly -- and rapping orders to the kitchen.

In 2008, Johnson was nominated for an ALMA award for her role on the sketch comedy show. Mad TV was canceled by Fox that same year.

Hulk Hogan: "I Have NO IDEA Who My Sex Tape Partner Is"

Hulk Hogan just can't seem to identify his female co-star in the sex tape that just surfaced -- telling TMZ, he banged so many chicks after he left his ex-wife ... the woman could be one of MANY possible conquests.

Hulk called in to TMZ Live moments ago ... claiming he went on a 4-month alcohol-fueled lady-screwing bender between the time when he left his ex-wife Linda ... and met his current wife Jennifer.

Hulk tells us, "During that time, I don't even remember people's names, much less girls."

Hulk says he hasn't had sex with another woman since meeting Jennifer 5 years ago -- so the tape has to be at least 5 years old.

Hulk still has no idea who's selling the tape or how that person acquired it -- but Hulk's lawyer says, "If anyone goes forward with this thing, we're gonna find 'em and we're gonna prosecute."

Miley's Friends Tell her to Dump Liam because hes a Controlling Pothead

Miley Cyrus’s buds aren’t happy with her relationship with Liam. In fact, they’re warning her to leave him before she makes a big mistake!

Miley Cyrus, 19, can’t seem to stay out of the controversial limelight — not even with her friends. They think she can do way better than Liam Hemsworth.

“He’s bossy and controlling, and it’s just understood that Miley always pays for them,” a source tells Star. “Her pals all think he’s just a dumb surfer and a pothead.”

And Miley’s friends blame the 22-year-old Aussie actor for all of her latest gaffes — including earning a rep for being a hard-core stoner.

But it sounds like Miley isn’t listening to her friends, who include a disapproving Kelly Osbourne, since she’s said to be considering moving to Australia, getting married and starting a family with The Hunger Games actor.

Still, her friends are hoping something inside her will click.

“Everyone would breathe a big sigh of relief if she dumped Liam and moved on,” a source says.

Do you think Miley is too good for Liam?

TV Network Power Rankings: What’s Their Greatest Season Ever?

Winner: 2006 (“Brotherhood,” “Dexter,” “Huff,” “The L Word,” “Weeds,” etc.)

Runner-Up: 2011 (“The Big C,” “The Borgias,” “Californication,” “Dexter,” “Episodes,” “Homeland,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” “Shameless,” “United States of Tara,” Weeds,” etc.)

Showtime finally premiered its first HBO-level series last year in “Homeland,” and though I could be persuaded to declare 2011 the winner, based simply on the merits of that one show, I can’t forget season six of “Dexter” and season seven of “Weeds” and season one of “Episodes.” (Seasons one and four of “Shameless” and “Californication,” those were OK.) Instead, the honor goes to 2006, when Showtime’s slate included the Ice Truck Killer year of “Dexter,” season two of “Weeds” (MILFweed), and the underappreciated freshman season of “Brotherhood,” as well as “The L Word” and “Huff” (I guess).

Interview: Game Of Thrones Creators David Benioff And D.B. Weiss + A New Teaser

A Game of Thrones teaser created by HBO Latin America that plays up the whole "Ice & Fire" motif.


In the second of our Game of Thrones roundtable interviews we sit down with the creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Benioff first began reading the book series A Song of Ice and Fire in the winter of 2006 and almost immediately called his friend D.B. Weiss to say, “I think it’s the best thing I’ve read in as long as I can remember.” Weiss began to read the series and, “two and half days later I was done with a 900 page book, which is probably the first time I had done that since I was 12.”

Before Game of Thrones Benioff was best known for his writing credits on the films Troy and The Kite Runner as well as the novels City of Thieves and The 25th Hour, which he himself adapted for the Spike Lee feature film of the same name, while Weiss wrote the novel Lucky Wander Boy and has written the screen adaptations of the videogame Halo and the upcoming, highly anticipated Ender’s Game.

has abby lee finally gone too far?

On last night's episode of Dance Moms, the tween girls took the stage during the Fire and Ice competition in Pittsburgh and performed a rather risqué Vegas showgirl-like routine—complete with skimpy outfits and feathery fans. But did it go too far? Not in the eyes of dance coach Abby Lee Miller.

"The idea of the fan dance is you give the illusion that you're nude underneath the fans, which, c'mon, we all know you have tan bras and tan tights on," said Miller during the program. "Everyone in the industry knows that the girls are completely covered and everything is harmless."

Sure enough, not only were several of the moms taken aback by the revealing outfits, but so were many of the young ladies themselves. "I guess all the girls and I feel kind of nervous because we feel kind of naked," said Chloe before stepping out to dance in front of the equally uncomfortable judges.
