Emma Stone: "I Haven't Worked Out for a Month and I'm Proud of It!"



Like most women, Emma Stone isn't 100 percent happy with her body.

"I do have that thing of, 'Oh my God, I'm disgusting! I ate a huge Wagamama lunch, the whole yaki soba, and I feel so fat,'" the 23-year-old tells England's S Magazine. "But I'm still gonna eat that stuff, and you know what? You can get nice, loose clothes that cover it all up."

The actress, who's currently dating her Amazing Spider-Man costar Andrew Garfield, adds: "I'm not gonna go parading around in a bikini. OK, I did that in a photo shoot once, but it's about what you're comfortable with at the time you're comfortable with it. That was a good day, but you won't hear me saying I have no body issues because I wouldn't be human if I didn't."

While shooting the Oscar-nominated film The Help in 2010, Stone put on a few extra pounds after indulging in Mississippi's famous comfort foods.

"Suddenly nothing fitted me, but then they have such delicious food in the South and I don't believe in depriving yourself," Stone tells S Magazine. "Yes, you should be healthy and take care of yourself, but growing up I've seen people who have horrible issues with food."
Laughs Stone: "I haven't worked out for a month and I'm proud of it!"

"Running is bad for your knees and I like to do things I actually enjoy, like going for a swim. I had a trainer during Spider-Man and I discovered I have deep-seated rage when I'm holding heavy weights over my head. Whatever dormant anger I have in me, that’s where it comes out. That's not the kind of working out I want to do," the actress explains.

"I would much rather sleep at night than want to throw a weight across a room at someone. I'm usually a pretty peaceful person, but for some reason when I get in the gym something bubbles up in me."

elle fanning in contention to play perfect princess aurora in maleficent with queen angie



While Dakota Fanning's most recent big screen effort looks like this (lol), her sister Elle Fanning has been the one with the lucky horseshoe lately. Counting David Fincher, Cameron Crowe, Sofia Coppola, J.J. Abrams and Francis Ford Coppola among the directors she's recently worked with, the actress is now looking to bank time with Angelina Jolie on the set of her next film.

Twitch reveal that Elle is in talks to star opposite Jolie in the brewing "Maleficent." More or less confirmed last month by Jolie as her next big screen role, the film is a reboot of the classic fairy tale (of course) that would see Mrs. Brad Pitt as the evil witch and Fanning as Princess Aurora, who gets lulled into a long slumber. We haven't seen the Broadway production, but we presume she won't be sleeping for the whole movie. The Jolie/Fanning pairing seems pretty unstoppable, and as much as another fairy tale movie makes us want to tear our hair out, it's hard to argue with those leads.

Newbie Robert Stromberg (production designer on “Alice In Wonderland,” “Avatar” and “Oz: The Great and Powerful”) is being tasked with making his directorial debut on the movie, proving Disney has learned little from taking that approach on "John Carter." No release date yet but seeing as this seems to be gearing up, 2013 is looking like a possibility.

There's a company in Pennsylvania that lets you freeze-dry your best friends after they pass on, and Kathie Lee and Hoda debated the merits of turning loved ones into furniture. Thankfully, the service is only for pets.

Hoda admitted to being seriously "creeped out" by some brochure photos of dogs who had basically gone through the same process as astronaut ice cream. Kathie Lee admitted to keeping the cremated remains of her dogs in her library.

Destinee & Paris Dedicate a Song to Kony 2012



Pop sister duo Destinee & Paris Monroe have dedicated an acoustic song, "Scream", to the Kony 2012 campaign.



We recorded this song "Scream" and want to dedicate it to the children who have been captured by the LRA to be a voice for them, because the children being taken, abused, and forced into doing terrible things that children shouldn't even know about are screaming for help and the LOUDEST SCREAMS DON'T EVEN MAKE A SOUND.

Jamie Foxx Comes Out.....of his clothes

Jamie Foxx does an AMAZING Michael Jackson impression ... in his underwear ... and TMZ has unearthed the unbelievable footage to prove it.

The video was shot at an after-party at Jamie's mansion in L.A. ... roughly ten years ago ... right around the time he was blowin' up for his role in "Ali."

Foxx -- sporting nothing but a pair of red briefs, white sneakers and a baseball hat -- gets downright funky in front of a group of friends while Prince's "I Wanna Be Your Lover" plays in the background.

We're told everyone had a blast that night ... and Foxx continued to dance his ass off even after the camera shut down.

Just one question -- Briefs? Really?

Kathy Griffin On Her New Bravo Talk Show 'Kathy', Rush Limbaugh, Kirk Cameron and More



Move over, Cher and get ready to share the spotlight, Madonna. There's a new mononymous diva in Hollywood: Kathy. "We don't need the Griffin anymore, honey," Kathy said. "It's 2012 -- they know it's me."

Yep, Kathy Griffin is moving on up since "My Life on the D-List," the Bravo reality show that earned her two Emmys and a couple of notches on the Hollywood totem pole. After six seasons of "D-List" and 13 Bravo stand-up specials to date (with two more on the way this year, she said, "like a damn fool"), now she's got a new pop culture talk show to solidify her spot on the B+/A- list.

"Kathy" (premieres Thurs., April 19, 10 p.m. EST) is a one-hour weekly talk show that lets Griffin rant about anything and everything, whatever's on her mind, from celebrity to politics. She might sometimes be accompanied by her wine-loving mom, Maggie, and she might also do the show without clothes on. But if any Bravo bigwigs are reading this, she swears she's going to be on her best behavior. (She's not.)

HuffPost TV was the first to chat with her about it, and between rants about Rush Limbaugh, Kirk Cameron, Scientology and her favorite target, the Kardashians, Griffin's exclusive scoop about the show got us pretty excited to hang out with her every week.

Johnny Depp will not be playing Tom Hanson

Where in the world is Johnny Depp?



By now you’ve probably heard that the superstar appears in the upcoming 21 Jump Street flick, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s reboot of the television series that launched Depp’s career.

We’re not spilling on who he plays (don’t want to ruin the surprise!), but we can tell you…

He did not reprise his original role of Officer Tom Hanson for the movie (in theaters March 16).

In fact, Depp goes completely unrecognizable—until the big reveal, that is.

I’m told he spent about three hours in makeup for the transformation for the one-day shoot.

“Even the crew on set didn’t recognize him,” a source reports. “They were telling him what to do and giving him all sorts of direction like he was one of the extras.”


The part was apparently written specifically for Mr. Depp.

New Girl star Jake Johnson, who plays the high school principal in 21 Jump Street, told us back in October that Depp’s appearance was “more than just a moment.”

It certainly is.

Ugh, he takes every opportune moment to not look like himself.

The Voice Contestant, Jamar Rogers, Gets Candid about HIV Positive Status




On Feb. 6, Jamar Rogers shared his HIV-positive status with millions as a prospective contestant on NBC's performance competition show The Voice. The soulful, exuberant Bronx resident and God's Love We Deliver volunteer amazed audiences with the ease of his disclosure, and the comfort with which he discussed his troubled past. Celebrities on the show, like Carson Daly and Cee Lo, took it all in stride -- chipping away at the stigma that so many in the viewing public likely hold when it comes to HIV.

On Feb. 12, Jamar joined TheBody.com blogger Robert Breining and his co-host Jeromy Dunn on POZ I AM Radio. In this inspiring interview, Jamar opens up about everything from his HIV diagnosis to family and relationships to being part of the cast of The Voice. There's even a special appearance by his ever-supportive mom, Danielle.


On the Aftermath of His Audition on The Voice

Jeromy Dunn: Jamar, listening to that opening song; listening to your audition from The Voice; just listening to you and your energy: It's amazing. I mean, you must be on the moon right now.

Jamar Rogers: I really am, man. And you know, the very next day after -- Tuesday, right after the audition aired -- I was just walking around running some errands here on the block and a guy stopped me on the street. I would have never thought that this guy would ever stop to talk to me. And he hugged me and said that he, too, was in recovery, and he, too, was HIV positive. And he wanted to thank me for what I was doing.

Yeah, meeting Cee Lo has honestly been one of the highlights of my life, and it is really rad to be on national television. But I tell you what, Jeromy: What warms my heart are all the inbox messages I'm getting and the emails I'm getting from people have never told anyone they were HIV positive. They've never disclosed their status to anyone before. And I feel so honored to be the first person that they've decided to come clean with. That puts me over the moon.

Jeromy Dunn: I bet it does. And what an inspiration! I mean, you inspire me to go get voice lessons again. But I look at your picture and I look at you, and then this voice comes out of you. And it's like where is this coming from?

We'll get into your story soon, but I want to know about your process. When you get up onstage and you're in front of those cameras, what do you do to get yourself psyched up?

Jamar Rogers: Well, I get up really early the day that I usually have to perform. And this is just performances around New York, as well. I get up really early and I kind of just spend some alone time, talking to God.

Kanye is too loud for the Royal family




WHEN Kanye West moved to London it was a dead certainty that he would annoy a few people with his Zoolander antics. Now he has not only upset the fashion world but also members of the Royal Family.

The rapper has been living at the Lanesborough Hotel - just a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace - for the past few months. He took over the top floor and set up music studios and fashion workshops in multiple rooms.

He also brought over members of his entourage and rappers including Common, Pusha T and Big Sean, whose name must have been inspired by P Diddy.

And their disturbances at the hotel - where a suite costs £2,700 ($4,000) a night - did not go down too well with royals and other well-heeled guests.

Kanye's protege Big Sean said, "We went to London and we were right next to the Buckingham Palace and the Royal family. There were members of the Royal family staying below us. Kanye had rented out the top floor and we was banging that b*tch out."

"Every room was a studio. The Royal family below were complaining like, 'We got all this loud-ass rap music above us and weed smoke'. They paid all this money and you don't expect to get these kind of complaints," he added.


On Tuesday night Kanye debuted his new fashion collection in Paris, where he was snapped with P Diddy, after months spent working on it. Early reviews of his clothes have not been too positive so far.

Nicki Minaj Calling Upon The Holy Spearit For Roman Reloaded?




Word on the street is that Nicki Minaj is hooking up with her pal, professional Femme Fatale Britney Spears, for her April release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. According to Brit Brit fansite, BreatheHeavy, the fiercest Barb in the land has tapped her one-time tourmate for the track, “Masquerade.” Neither girl has commented on the rumor, but it’s not that crazy in terms of collaborations.

It wouldn’t be the first time the two ladies worked together. Minaj dropped a verse on Spears’ “Till The World Ends” last year before she hit the road with the pop princess for her Femme Fatale trek. But the move, if it turns out to be true, shows that Minaj is always trying to move in between a pop and urban audience.

While on tour with Spears last year, she explained her stance. “I'm always surprised," she said of Spears’ fans knowing the words to her songs. "I don't really expect them to know all the records, but I guess it just kind of transcends all genres of music at this point."

While this all remains a rumor, Minaj did drop the deluxe artwork for the album, out April 3. It is basically the same as the standard album’s art, but with a lot more of Nicki showing. Still painted up, the camera has panned down a lot more to expose a lot more of Minaj’s body and curves.

john mayer cancels his tour because a granuloma grew in his throat again



"I have no idea how to introduce this post, so I’m skipping the first paragraph.

During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see my throat doctor because something didn’t feel/sound right. I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down.

I want to explain this a bit more in depth than I have in the past, because I know there’s some confusion as to what this condition is; a granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it’s in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there’s no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment. In short, it’s one giant pain in the ass.

Okay, so here’s the plan… Born and Raised will be released as scheduled, but because I don’t make a very good anything-other-than-a-musician, I’m going to begin writing the next album very soon. I feel really vibrant as a writer at the moment and there’s no reason not to begin the next album project in the time I would have been touring. Somewhere in all of this is another surgery and a very long chemically-imposed period of silence, so I hope you’ll understand that I have to really pick that date carefully.

I’m pretty emotionally burnt out at the moment, but please know how hard I tried to resolve this and how disappointed I am that I can’t perform this record yet. I’m completely bummed, especially for all of you who started making plans to see a show. Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance, and I mean nothing. I love this band you were going to hear, I love the guys and girls I work with, and the only thing that stops me from devolving into a puddle of tears is knowing that it’s a long life, and the greatest gift in the world is being able to create music no matter what the circumstances. So these are the new circumstances, and I’ll find a way to make it mean something. That’s all you can ever do.

John"

Chris Brown and girlfriend still going strong despite Rihanna beef.

Controversy doesn't seem to stop this celebrity couple from having a good time. Just days after reports of war of words between Chris Brown's girlfriend Karreuche Tran and his former flame Rihanna and the couple put on an affectionate show as they left a Hollywood nightclub.



The R&B star and Vietnamese model were seen leaving the Tru Nightclub in Hollywood. The two were all smiles as they sat behind the wheel in Brown's car, with the Grammy winner sporting a white hoodie and his girlfriend wearing black.

Collapse )

This adds to the flurry of controversy surrounding the celebrity couple. Earlier this week Karrueche and R&B star Rihanna engaged in a social media feud via Twitter and Facebook, with the two making jabs at each other.

On March 6th the "We Found Love" singer also tweeted: "I'm a leader, yall on some following sh-t...comin in dis game on some modeling sh-t!" The model reference could be interpreted as another stab at Brown's current girlfriend.

Rumors also speculate that Rihanna and Brown are not only back together, but engaged to be married. Star magazine reported that friends close to Rihanna said the two are planning to tie the knot, but nothing has been officially confirmed.

Kit Harington thinks Jon Snow is 'quite stupid,' shares other thoughts and opinions



Sitting down for a roundtable interview with Kit Harington is more akin to having a chat with a friend over a pint than a Q&A session. Wonderfully candid and open, the man behind Jon Snow tells us what he thinks about the bastard son of Ned Stark and how his hair helps him get into character, while we resist the urge to say, “you know nothing Jon Snow!”

He is currently filming another fantasy epic, the feature film Seventh Son with The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes and will next be seen in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.

Had you heard of the books when you got the part?
I had never heard of the books when I got the pilot through. I read the pilot and didn't touch the books until I got the part and then once I got the part I went out and bought all four of them and read them but I'd never heard of them up until then.

So having read them all does that influence how you play Jon?
I love having source material so having something there that is giving you as much about your character as you can, I love to know as much as I can. I got too far ahead of myself and had to reel it all back in, "wait a minute this is a long process we're going on, I need to make sure I don't endgame and end up somewhere where I've got nowhere to leave myself to go." So I reeled it back in and realised that at the start he's different from how he is when he gets further along the line. But I think it was important to read them because I could get a real grip of who he was.

What have you learned about Jon?
Something I learned about him recently, I was trying to work him out and I was thinking, "actually is he quite stupid?" Because I made a few decisions about him and it led to this person who in the books he makes a lot of mistakes, he acts first and doesn't think about things and so I realised recently he's a very instinctual person. He's a good person, he'll do the right things for people but he won't think ahead of time.

I had another part that I had to think about that was similar to Jon but for a different project and I was trying to think how to differ them and actually the other guy thinks about things and then acts. So he's [Jon} an instinctual person that's what I realised about him and I think that makes him who he is. He's not exactly intelligent as we think of people being intelligent, he knows how to use a sword and he's a good person and he's a natural leader but he doesn't think ahead too much.

Blind Item about Amanda Bynes?

SarcasticYay Pictures, Images and Photos


Ever wonder what happens when you put a former B+ female tweener who gets her own first show and you mix her with a former B list television actress from a long running hit ensemble show who also thinks she is the star? You get several years of pleasantness on the outside and the worst conditions ever on a show on the inside. The former tweener had a huge ego. Coming off some movies and a very popular tween show she thought she was going to be the biggest star on the planet. She also had a very goody goody image on the outside, but on multiple occasions had more than one guy at once. She is also a huge collector of her own homemade porn.

The actress coming into the show who had been on the hit ensemble show also was a goody goody on the inside and out but it did not stop her from being a diva. She also could be the biggest b**ch on the planet if you crossed her. As she told the tweener once after they got into a hair pulling fight, "I learned from the meanest actress who ever walked onto a television set. You will lose."
How about the times that our tweener would walk around naked when the actresses husband would stop by the set. "Oops. I did not know you were here." Not that she would ever normally have sex with him. She likes big, big big guys if you know what I mean. However, to get back at the actress she would have slept with the husband who is also a B list movie actor.
For years the two never spoke to each other unless they had to. Knowing how prudish the actress was, our tweener would have wild sex as loudly and as close to the actress as possible even when her kids were visiting. She would even have sex in the actresses' trailer and have her companions leave their used condoms. It was a wild wild set and the two still hate each other.

“I do have a plan to do a little bit of a collaboration with Justin, I hope you get to hear it soon,” Jepsen told Ryan Seacrest. That was all the ‘Canadian Idol’ runner up would reveal!

Jepsen has already collaborated with Bieber — and Selena Gomez and more — but not quite so directly. Biebs, his lady love and some famous pals teamed up to make a video set to Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe.’

A new Sim City to be released in 2013



If you’re a fan of crafting your own dream city, then you’ll be happy to know that SimCity will be making a comeback next year. During the EA Game Changers event at GDC 2012, EA & Maxis made it official that SimCity will be releasing in 2013.

A rumor surfaced within the last few weeks that mentioned a new SimCity title, so it’s great to hear that EA has made the announcement official. Thanks to the official website for the new SimCity title, we’ve been able to list a few details in regards to the title below:

Work together with friends to build a region for the first time! The cities in your friends’ region will directly interact with each other. Want to be a good neighbor? Send fire trucks to help your friend in an emergency. Want to be a bad neighbor? Produce mass pollution and watch your friends’ Sims become sick. Team up to share resources and accomplish great feats like launching shuttles into space. Participate in global challenges like lowering the total pollution output in the SimCity world to unlock a trophy to place in your city. Check regional and global leaderboards to compare your city with your friends. Every decision in your city and those in your friends’ cities will impact the greater SimCity world.

  • Immersive 3D worlds and tactile interactions give you the power to shape the city you envision. Customize buildings to unlock additional functionality and offer additional gameplay benefits. Experiment and place buildings in different locations and watch how it affects your city. Play with new enhanced design tools like curvy roads and zoning to create the city you always wanted. Complete missions to unlock better buildings and create the most impressive city in your region.
  • SimCity introduces GlassBox, the revolutionary simulation technology that gives you the power to impact individual Sims lives, manage city level simulation, and balance multiple city simulations at once.
  • The Sims in your city speak to you directly and it’s up to you to respond by completing pledges. Unlock rewards and earn achievements by meeting your Sims basic demands, like providing water and electricity, but soon they will ask for better schools and bigger parks. How you manage your city and the Sims living in it is entirely up to you. Build hospitals for the sick and provide entertainment for leisure and your Sim population will grow and be happy.

Maxis hasn’t released any additional details at this point, but it’s great to hear that a new SimCity title is in development. Along with the announcement, a trailer was released showcasing the vision for the title which we’ve included above.

MPAA Grants 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' PG-13 Rating

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is now rated PG-13, rather than R, the Classification and Rating Appeals Board of the MPAA ruled Thursday.

Erik Feig, president of production at Lionsgate Motion Picture Group and Stephen Chbosky, the director, screenwriter and author of the novel on which the movie was based, appeared before the board to make their case for the lower rating.

Originally, the Classification and Rating Administration assigned the movie, which stars Emma Watson and Paul Rudd, an R based on “teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references.” The appeals board switched that to PG-13 “for mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references, and a fight – all involving teens.” Lol this sounds worse than the R-rated description tbh

The movie is about 15-year-old high school freshman Charlie, played by Logan Lerman, who is taken under the wings of two seniors while he copes with his first love, played by Watson, the suicide of his best friend and his own mental illness.

The MPAA has been under criticism lately for assigning the Weinstein Co.'s documentary "Bully" an R. The company appealed the rating, but lost.

I'm really happy they managed to get this appealed and I'm glad the MPAA is finally acting like a reasonable bunch. Now, give us a damn trailer!

Music's Top 20 Money Makers 2012!



As the concert business rebounded in 2011, touring remained the biggest source of income for the top earners in the U.S. music business. Billboard's sixth annual Money Makers ranking includes veteran road warriors U2, Kenny Chesney and Bon Jovi, as well as other artists emerging in recent years as A-list arena headliners, from Taylor Swift to Lady Gaga. But not all of the 40 artists on the Money Makers list relied heavily, if at all, on touring income.

Thanks to the breathtaking sales of sophomore album "21," Adele made a top 10 showing despite vocal cord problems limiting her ability to perform publicly before she was forced to cancel 10 sold-out U.S. dates in the fall. Sales of the Beatles' classic catalog-powered by impressive digital album sales at iTunes-enabled the Fab Four to make their Money Makers debut. And who says kids don't buy music these days? Justin Bieber enjoyed such robust album and digital track sales that even his absence from the U.S. touring market didn't keep him from making the cut.

Country artists had another banner year, occupying 11 of the 40 slots on the list, with Swift surpassing all with U.S. earnings of $35.7 million, 17% more than the take-home pay of last year's top-earner, Lady Gaga. Conspicuously absent are dance artists, despite the genre's recent commercial resurgence. That's due, in part, to the fact that even the most prominent dance acts can't match the recorded-music sales of mainstream pop, rock and country artists. Moreover, touring itineraries of most star DJs not named Tiësto include multiple club dates, and venue capacities are simply too small to generate the financial returns of an arena tour.

Coolio & Son Arrested - Locked Up at Same Jail



Like father, like son ...

TMZ has learned rapper Coolio was arrested in Las Vegas today ... and is currently behind bars at the same jail as his kid.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... Coolio was a passenger in a Nissan Versa which was pulled over for a routine traffic violation early Friday morning.

We're told the cops ran Coolio's name in the system and noticed he had 2 active bench warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic violations.

Coolio was arrested and hauled to Clark County Detention Center -- the same place where his son Grtis is rotting away for allegedly robbing some dude at gunpoint a few months ago.

Coolio's bail has been set at $5,850. A court date has not yet been set.

Jon Hamm disses Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton


Mad Men's Jon Hamm has hit out at the cult of celebrity that has made "idiots" like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian into millionaires.

'Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,' he told April's Elle UK magazine. 'Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly.'

The Golden Globe winning actor says the success of reality TV stars 'doesn't make any sense' to him.

He added that he also didn't understand why blonde, skinny women have become the epitome of beauty by modern society, saying curvy women like his Mad Men co-star Christina Hendricks are more beautiful.

On his own looks, he confesses he doesn't know why he has so many female admirers. 'I don't even consider myself handsome,' he said. 'When I look in the mirror I see my goofy-assed self from when I was a kid.'

The 40-year-old also said he won't get sucked into the Hollywood cult of eternal youth as spending hours having his hair done is 'not my game'.

His comments come as the new series of successful TV show Mad Men, in which he plays womanising advertising exec Don Draper, is due to air.

The fifth series follows on from his character's shock proposal to his secretary Megan at the end of series four.

But Hamm told the magazine he has no intentions of tying the knot in real life.

He has been with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for 15 years and says they don't need to get married to prove their commitment to one another.

'Having a piece of paper serves to remind you of your commitment, but we do a pretty good job of reminding each other,'
he said.

Anthony Bourdain Praises Marilyn Hagerty, Olive Garden Reviewer.




The review was so earnest that cynics thought it had to be a joke.


Marilyn Hagerty's rave of the new Olive Garden in Grand Forks, N.D., has gone viral, with the 85-year-old author of The EatBeat column in the Herald attracting a mixture of jaded disbelief and unlikely praise.

"Very much enjoying watching Internet sensation Marilyn Hagerty triumph over the snarkologists (myself included)," Anthony Bourdain told his Twitter followers.

Kelly Clarkson on Ron Paul in a recent interview: ‘I didn’t even endorse him’

“I voted for Barack, so it’s not even like I’m a hardcore Republican.”



Last December, American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson gained a whole new group of fans when she tweeted the following message: “I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

Ms. Clarkson’s pro-Paul comments also cost her a chunk of her supporters, as the pop star was lambasted on Twitter for supporting the Texas congressman. In a March 15th issue of Rolling Stone, Ms. Clarkson details the circumstances of the Twitter backlash. “I didn’t even endorse him! All I said was that I liked him,” Ms. Clarkson remarks in the interview, according to POLITICO. “I voted for Barack, so it’s not even like I’m a hardcore Republican,” Ms. Clarkson adds.

Ms. Clarkson makes it clear in the interview that her decision to tweet her thoughts about Mr. Paul was completely spur of the moment. “I’m hanging out with my brother and my little niece, playing Barbies, and Ron Paul comes on TV. He doesn’t BS around anything. I was like, ‘This dude is refreshing,’” Ms. Clarkson explains.


While Ms. Clarkson received a number of angry comments from her Twitter followers, the pop star also received a mention from none other than Mr. Paul himself. During a campaign rally at Valley High School in West Des Moines, POLITICO’s Juana Summers reported that Mr. Paul asked the crowd the following question: “Does anybody here know the name Kelly Clarkson?”

It was initially reported that Ms. Clarkson’s pro-Paul tweet increased her album sales, but that report was later proven false. Billboard.com reported on January 5th that the increase in Ms. Clarkson’s album sales was due to iTunes’ advertising of Stronger and a $7.99 sale price.

Justin Bieber Is About To Get His Wig Snatched

Watch Your Back, Bieber: The Boy Band Is Making a Comeback
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“The boys are back!” the Internet cried this week, reinstating the relevance of all-male pop groups. Women have had a strong run dominating the Top 40 pop charts, no doubt, but thanks to some international imports, we may be about to hear a lot more harmonizing than we have in the last few years.

In what looks like the second coming of Westlife and Boyzone, two bands in particular have been leading a boy-band comeback and dominating the discussion: The Wanted and One Direction—each consisting of four Brits and one Irishman. Rolling Stone declared that after months and months of Adele ruling the charts, The Wanted has made significant headway on the Billboard digital-songs chart, jumping to No. 2 with their clubby, Ibiza-appropriate “Glad You Came.”

Why 'The Hunger Games' is also the Gender Games

For the producers behind "The Hunger Games," a movie based on a young-adult novel about a teenage girl fighting for survival and struggling with a love triangle, the guys matter.

The movie doesn't open until March 23, but soothsayers are already predicting an opening-weekend gross in excess of $100 million. Barclays Capital estimates that the movie will generate $275 million domestically, on par with the most recent installment of the "Twilight" series. The studio, Lionsgate, is hoping to launch a multibillion-dollar franchise. Expectations have already sent its stock price soaring.

To avoid falling short of such lofty predictions, Lionsgate has been picking its way through a minefield of gender issues: reeling in male moviegoers without alienating core female fans. But male audiences, long the driver of blockbuster openings, have proved increasingly fickle as they divide their attention with videogames and other diversions.

'Glee' Recurring star cast in Roseanne Barr new sitcom

What does this mean for Cory's character?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With many of the older students on "Glee" moving on past McKinley High School, it looks as though some of the parents may also be stepping away from this show's universe in lieu of other projects.

According to new scoop, Romy Rosemont (who recurs as Finn's mother on the hit Fox show) has been cast for a role on the upcoming NBC show "Downwardly Mobile," which stars Roseanne Barr as the owner of a mobile home park filled with all sorts of unusual residents.

If this pilot gets picked up and Romy is indeed a regular, it's hard to see her making too many future appearances on "Glee" beyond this season; however, her role is likely to be reduced, anyway, thanks to Finn moving out on his own. (Mike O'Malley, who plays Kurt's father, also has a pilot commitment.)

Madonna Starts Cancelling European World Tour shows due to Poor Ticket Sales



This is one piece of news a Madonna fan should never have to read. Promoters Adria Entertaiment and Live Nation confirmed today that the June 11 Madonna World Tour concert at Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb, Croatia, has been cancelled due to "logistical"'reasons.

"We are very sorry that many Madonna fans will be disappointed," Adria Entertainment said in a statement on their website.

Vladimir Ivankovic, CEO of Adria Party, got in more details saying that "unfortunately the world of corporate business decisions are made regarding the primary benefit of the corporation. In this case we could not go under any agreement we have with local partners and take over the logistical commitments that are subsequently placed in front of us, and refer to the manner of use of the stadium. Because of this, we made a joint decision that without it iwould not be logistically possible to organize a concert in a satisfactory manner, which would bring loss to all parties involved in the project. So we had to cancel the concert." . 

"Refund begins 3/19/2012 and will last until the last customer does not come for a refund for your ticket", Ivankovic also said. "We know that this decision of the cancellation may have an impact on the market, but our long-term fairness and the public trust, we are sure, will override this challenge, and this trust will not be affected." 

Refunds for all ticket buyers for the cancelled concert can be obtained from 19 March 2012 at the original retail outlets where tickets were purchased. Fans who have purchased their tickets online will have the amount refunded on their credit cards. Those who have purchased their tickets at the Adria Entertainment box office - regardless of payment method - will be refunded only at the original Adria Entertainmen point of sale.

"logistical" reasons = poor ticket sales.

Native Americans on film: 'Well, my friend, looks like we're surrounded'



The New Mexico film industry is having a hard time as it is. With the news that Sony Imageworks is packing up its visual effects office in Albuquerque this summer because of the state’s change of heart regarding the industry’s support, it’s hard to criticize a big budget picture setting up shop in the state.

As it is, Disney’s “Tonto and The Lone Ranger” almost didn’t make it this far. A gargantuan budget was nixed by Disney suits at first, but, after a significant bit of slashing, the greenlight was lit and local film professionals are now doing a happy dance, according to media reports. The production is underway and working toward a May 13, 2013 release date, hopefully employing lots of grateful New Mexicans.

The real queen of television is about to retake her throne


The network that canceled Susan Lucci’s long running soap is not quite ready to say goodbye to its biggest star: The All My Children actress will co-star in Marc Cherry’s next drama in the works for ABC called Devious Maids.

The script is about four maids with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous. Lucci will play one of the employers.

Devious Maids also stars Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty).

There was a chance that Lucci’s old soap would continue online, but the company that bought the rights to AMC and One Life to Live were unable to reach guild deals. Arrangements with the unions were necessary if Prospect Park wanted to also sell the soaps to cable, but it’s economically unfeasible to pay guild wages for an internet show that would generate a fraction of the revenue it once did on ABC.

It also didn’t help that Prospect couldn’t convince Lucci to continue her role on the internet. Only Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) and Lindsay Hartley (Dr. Cara Castillo Martin) had agreed to continue on AMC after it finished its network run in September.

Cher is retiring again, next tour will be her "Farewell Tour" for realz!

Class action lawsuits need to be drawn up against both Cher and Tina Turner for false advertisement. They got all the gheys to dish out their money a decade ago by telling them that that was to be the last time they would see them live and in concert. Y U lie!

Pop superstar Cher is adamant her new tour will be her last after previously retiring from the road in 2005.

The singer's Living Proof: The Farewell Tour ran between 2002 and 2005 and she subsequently set herself up in Las Vegas for a residency, which ended last year.

She is now planning a comeback with a new album and she recently revealed she will be hitting the road once again for another series of shows.

However, the Believe star insists this tour will definitely will be her last.

In a series of posts in Twitter.com, she writes: "This 1 will b (sic) 'last one'! I want 2 (sic) do it 'well' just 1 more time!... Last one 'Never Can Say Goodbye' Tour! Touring is hard!"

Jessica Biel Finally Reveals Engagement Ring



We’ve been waiting — and we must say, we’re very impressed.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Bielenjoyed a late lunch at Brentwood eatery Tavern Thursday, with Biel casually sporting a standout accessory: her engagement ring!

The newly engaged pair — joined by another couple and their toddler — was all smiles in the center of the restaurant’s atrium room. Timberlake, 31, looked handsome in a blue-and-white checkered short-sleeved shirt and newsboy cap, and Biel, 30, was gorgeous in an aqua Twelfth St by Cynthia Vincent dress, cream blazer and Roger Vivier flats, little makeup and her hair in a high ponytail.

Biel’s ring — which she’s rarely flashed in public since her and Timberlake’s engagement was announced in January — features a large, slightly rounded square-cut diamond with smaller stones surrounding it, and appears to have a vintage feel.

An onlooker tells PEOPLE that during the meal, Timberlake and Biel sat side by side, noshed on sandwiches and were very sweet with each other, as well as with their friends’ child — and that the actress “could not have looked happier.”

What Are America's Favorite Fast Food Chains? Survey Names The Top 10!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In September, Zagat released it's ranking of fast food chains, determining that Five Guys was the most popular in the country. A comprehensive survey from research firm MarketForce, released in August, came up with the same result. Together, they gave Five Guys plenty of reason to be smug.

Industry research firm Sandelman and Assoc. just released the results of a huge new survey on fast food, based on the responses of 100,000 diners, far more than either Zagat or MarketForce. The final rankings are based on the responses of people who actually visited the restaurants in question in the three months before taking the survey. The survey ranked restaurants by the number of diners who said their experience had been "excellent."

Five Guys, though it does well, is not the winner. Neither is In-N-Out, another perennial contender in these types of surveys. (Though it's worth noting that, as a commenter points out, the final results weren't so far off from the Zagat rankings by rating rather than popularity.)

JK Rowling post

J.K. Rowling is no longer a billionaire

by Stephan Lee



The billionaires club has hit J.K. Rowling with a banishing spell. According to the newly updated Forbes Rich List, the Harry Potter author has gone from billionaire to millionaire (several hundred times over, of course). She apparently broke a few rules of how to stay rich by giving away a lot of her fortune — reportedly $160 million of it — to charity and by paying her top-rung British taxes.

There’s no way that the socially minded Rowling, who once lived on welfare, gives two Quaffles about her standing on the list, and no one should shed a tear over a stratospherically rich woman becoming slightly less so. But I always liked knowing that an author of imaginative, timeless, honest-to-goodness books became a billionaire.

Perhaps Rowling’s upcoming book for adults and the April opening of Pottermore will help bring her back above the line. Honestly, I don’t really care as long as she stays richer than Stephenie Meyer.

Katy Perry: The Shoegazer

Katy Perry has admitted that her next album will be much darker following her split from hubby, Russell Brand.

Speaking to Interview magazine, the 27-year old claims she will have less sugary-sweet pop songs on her new LP and more edgy tracks.

The Firework hitmaker stated: "My music is about to get real fucking dark. I'll be shoe-gazing. You'll never see my face because my hair is in my face."

Source

A/N: For those unfamiliar, shoegaze is a subgenre of alt rock popular in the early 90s in the UK, that used a lot of reverb and effects pedals by their shoes, hence the name, to create a noisey wall of sound. Some examples are My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Chapterhouse.

Limbaugh lost 49 sponsors since fluke incident,here's hoping this'll be the final nail in the coffin

Rush Limbaugh Defended Joseph Kony And The LRA In 2011

Headline of the piece: “Obama Invades Uganda, Targets Christians”



Below is a transcript from Rush Limbaugh's radio show on October 14, 2011. An excerpt:

Lord's Resistance Army objectives. I have them here. "To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people." Now, again Lord's Resistance Army is who Obama sent troops to help nations wipe out. The objectives of the Lord's Resistance Army, what they're trying to accomplish with their military action in these countries is the following: "To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people; to fight for the immediate restoration of the competitive multiparty democracy in Uganda; to see an end to gross violation of human rights and dignity of Ugandans; to ensure the restoration of peace and security in Uganda, to ensure unity, sovereignty, and economic prosperity beneficial to all Ugandans, and to bring to an end the repressive policy of deliberate marginalization of groups of people who may not agree with the LRA ideology." Those are the objectives of the group that we are fighting, or who are being fought and we are joining in the effort to remove them from the battlefield.


It's pretty clear that Limbaugh knew very little about Kony during the airing of this show. However even at the end when he apparently gets some information to the contrary, he can't help but continue to hammer on the fact that LRA are Christians:

Is that right? The Lord's Resistance Army is being accused of really bad stuff? Child kidnapping, torture, murder, that kind of stuff? Well, we just found out about this today. We're gonna do, of course, our due diligence research on it. But nevertheless we got a hundred troops being sent over there to fight these guys -- and they claim to be Christians.

Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom to Open the Cannes Film Festival



With the Cannes Film Festival now just two months away, we'll soon be getting a flurry of news about both the film and filmmakers headed to the Croisette. But to get things rolling, one film that we figured would make an apperance, has been confirmed.

Premiere movie magazine in France reports that festival honcho Thierry Fremaux has selected Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" to open the 65th Cannes Film Festival. Well we can't say we're surprised. All the signs have been pointing to a bow premiere at Cannes from the May 16th release date in France (the same date the fest kicks off), the starry red carpet ready cast and the fact that the beloved director has actually never been to Cannes to a show a film. But, it now seems Anderson can book his ticket and the festival line up is off to a great start.

Anderson's latest stars newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, as a young couple who fall in love and run away together, turning their small town upside down in the process. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel and Bob Balaban round out the cast, and we couldn't be more excited. And if you can't make it to the Croisette not to worry, "Moonrise Kingdom" opens on May 25th. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 16-27.
