In a recent interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, the R&B duo touched on their LPs and even some hot topics such as Kim Kardashian's sexual exploits. "Kim was one of my best friends," Brandy expressed. "That's always hard when your friend is dating your brother. So I tried to play the neutral ground but I still have love for Kim."
Charlemagne then asked Brandy a question about the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star that made the songstress visibly uncomfortable. "Did you always know Kim was a h-- when she was your best friend?" he asked. "Oh my god, did you really just say that?" Brandy responded. "I don't want to say h--," Charlemagne then stated. "Promiscuous."
"Our relationship was based on love and that's it," Brandy stated. "I'm not about to sit up here and talk about Kim like that. She was dating my brother. That's all I knew."

An improbable eyewitness has jumped to Lindsay Lohan's defense over the alleged hit-and-run incident outside a club early Wednesday morning -- a 16-year-old girl who was moonlighting as a paparazzo.
The girl -- Sarah -- tells TMZ, she went in the alley outside the Sayers Club to speak with Lindsay, who was already sitting in her parked car with a passenger. The manager of the adjacent hookah lounge appeared on his staircase and asked Lindsay what she was doing, and she replied, "Don't worry we're leaving."
Sarah says she was trying to guide Lindsay out of the tight alleyway, which Lindsay successfully navigated and then left. Sarah says at no point did Lindsay strike a vehicle. Even more important, Sarah claims the hookah manager never left his staircase and was nowhere near Lindsay's Porsche.
Sarah explains in the video how the manager then concocted a story that he and his car were struck, promising, "[Lindsay] is definitely going to pay."

Single since 2006, the first-ever American Idol winner, 29, revealed to a Toronto radio
station March 6 that she's been off the market since late last year. "I have a new
boyfriend!" Clarkson gushed.
Sources tell the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday) the lucky guy is 35-year-old
Nashville-based talent manager Brandon Blackstock, the son of Clarkson's own manager,
Narvel Blackstock (and stepson of Reba McEntire).
"Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love," an insider says of
the Grammy winner, who split from singer Graham Colton six years ago. "[Brandon] is
just what she needed."

Big Brother UK contestant Rodrigo Lopes has started living his life as a woman named Rebekah.
The Brazilian student, 26, who came fifth on series 10 of the Channel 4 show in 2009, has started dressing up in heels on nights out and is now planning gender reassignment surgery.
He hit headlines for his on/off relationship with co-star Charlie Drummond as they became the show's 'first gay couple' after having a bath together, followed by a passionate embrace in the bedroom.
In a new interview, the reality star spoke about his journey for his new life.
'I’ve always felt like I had a woman inside of me, always,' he told Heat magazine.
'But I used to hide it. I’ve always liked make-up, treatments and other womanly things, and I was 18 when I first started experimenting. But early this year I told my best friend Andrea how I was really feeling.
'She encouraged me. When I came back to the UK I started wearing my friends’ clothes first, then I began shopping for them. People in the shops were surprisingly normal about it. Now I go out with a transvestite I made friends with. She’s very glam. We go to straight clubs and get a lot of attention.'
He said he has an appointment with a doctor next week and is looking into hormone treatment, but worries about what his family will say.
Having a blast with her cute blonde wig, Kim Kardashian was spotted at the Samuel French Bookshop in Los Angeles.
The “Disaster Movie” babe narrowly avoided exposing her undergarments when a gust of wind blew her skirt up in a Marilyn Monroe-style incident while filming for her reality show.
In related news, an inside source is calling foul on Kim’s ex Kris Humphries’ claims that he didn’t benefit financially from their much-hyped nuptials and 72-day marriage.
Humphries was paid a reported $1 million from the actual event, and scored another $300,000 from appearances on the Kardashian reality shows.

At turns frenetic, contemplative and whimsical, Fiona Apple made her return to the stage Wednesday at the South By Southwest Music Conference and Festival.
The singer-songwriter debuted a handful of new songs from her upcoming album slated to be released this summer at NPR's showcase at Stubb's Barbecue.
The show was one of the most anticipated at South By Southwest this year, and a large crowd turned out to her early evening set. It's been five years since Apple played a live show outside of Los Angeles and seven years since her last album "Extraordinary Machine." She's got a second performance at a Pitchfork showcase in a church scheduled at SXSW before hitting the road for a short eight-date tour Sunday in Chicago.
Apple talked very little with the crowd during the performance, joking that she may have forgotten to sing the second verse of a new song, but pleased fans with some of their favorites, including "Criminal," "Fast As You Can" and "Sleep to Dream."
She turned in a spirited performance, overcoming a muggy evening and muddled sound that left her lyrics inaudible occasionally to many in the crowd. Wearing a black dress with a pink tank top underneath and her hair in a ponytail, she used a mug of hot tea to ease her voice through the final few songs. At one point she laid her head on her piano for about 45 seconds, then lifted it slightly as she watched rapturously as her guitar player finished off a song.
Twitter was afire with fans around the country expressing dismay at not being able to attend the event, but videos of her performance and the new songs were quickly fed to the Internet.
The only details released about the new album have been its title and imminent release. Her publicist said Wednesday that "The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do" will be released in June.

BTW, the first country to get the album is next Friday, March 23, 2012. You can expect a full leak then. Face it, the album is probably not going to leak until it's just about to hit store shelves.

Jason Isaacs is admittedly a bit caught off guard that people are now actually watching NBC’s Awake (Thursdays at 10/9c). After all, the pilot was filmed about a year ago, and production on the 13-episode first season had wrapped before the premiere hit the airwaves earlier this month.
“We were making it behind closed doors for so long… it’s an odd thing, the topic of watching it now,” the actor tells TVLine. “It’s this strange experience of slowly opening the doors to the sunlight and pushing a baby out. We’re feeling very vulnerable, but it’s nice that people are talking about it.” And how. TVLine welcomed the opportunity to explore Awake‘s nuances, strengths and aspirations in this conversation with Isaacs, in which he also previews this week’s riveting hour and weighs in on the doubly dynamic drama’s big mysteries.

The “gradual response” program works like this: ISPs will automatically monitor the Web activity of their customers. If a subscriber is found to be downloading copyrighted content illegally, their ISP will send them an “educational” notice saying such activity has been detected from IP addresses linked to their account. If that customer continues to download content illegally, the ISP will send “confirmation notices” to make sure they received the original notices. If copyright infringing activity continues still, the ISP then reserves the right to throttle Web access speeds, or cut off a subscriber’s Internet access altogether, at least until that user agrees to stop pirating copyrighted material. According to CNet, the ISPs have the option to skip these “mitigation measures,” and none have yet committed to completely cutting Internet access.
“Each ISP has to develop their infrastructure for automating the system,” said Sherman, at a CNet event in New York this week. This is required “for establishing the database so they can keep track of repeat infringers, so they know that this is the first notice or the third notice. Every ISP has to do it differently depending on the architecture of its particular network. Some are nearing completion and others are a little further from completion.”
While the RIAA, MPAA, and even the White House support this measure, many questions still remain. For instance, what about customers that get Internet access from smaller providers? Will those companies be pressured into jumping on the Hollywood bandwagon? Moreover, given the staunch public opposition to governmental efforts to impose restrictions on the Internet, how will people react if they lose their connection altogether? Our prediction: Dark days are ahead.

MODS THIS IS A NEW ARTICLE please post
On the heels of Peter Facinelli & Jennie Garth’s divorce and rumors of him cheating comes a blind item that suggests Facinelli may or may not have been shooting for the other team – something the woman who claims to have had an on-again off-again affair with Peter in 2009 and 2011 also hinted at to us in an exclusive interview.
It has been long rumored that Taylor Lauter, who has been linked to co-stars Taylor Swift and Lily Collins, daughter of Phil Collins, is actually gay – and now a certain report from BlindGossip.com suggests that Peter Facinelli may like things of the cock-a-doodle-doo kind too – something that corroborates what we were told by the woman-scorned. Meaning not only may another woman have played a role in the demise of his marriage to the Beverly Hills 90210 star, but another man as well. Papa Cullen sure seems to get around!

Obviously, the story hits the zeitgeist of Wall Street’s continued cultured of excess, and how it has continued unchecked. I eagerly await comments from morons who decry that Scorsese and DiCaprio are rich and therefore hypocrites because rich people can’t criticize other rich people for being rich. This argument misses the point, which is that there’s nothing wrong with being rich; there’s something wrong with getting rich by swindling others and reveling in such behavior.
Martin Scorsese is back on to reunite with Leonardo DiCaprio for a fifth time, and will collaborate on the drama The Wolf of Wall Street. A little over a year ago, we reported that the two were set to make the film and have it be Scorsese’s follow up to Hugo, but Scorsese dropped the project in May. Now Deadline reports that Scorsese is back on board, and shooting is set to begin in August in New York. The story is based on “Jordan Belfort‘s memoir of his days as a hard partying, drug addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.” Boardwalk Empire creator Terrence Winter wrote the script, and he’ll polish it up before the movie goes into production.
Scorsese’s move to The Wolf of Wall Street continues to make Silence the red-headed step-child of the Oscar-winning director’s slate. Silence, which is about the persecution of Jesuit priests in 17th century Japan, has long been on the director’s wish list of movies, and in December we reported that it looked like the project was finally a go. But for whatever reason—possibly financing, casting, and/or needing more time to work on the screenplay, just to name a few—Silence has been once again been pushed to the back-burner.

The 42-year-old actress was seen on the set of her music video Follow The Leader today in Mexico, alongside her male stunt double.
At first glance looking at Jennifer Lopez's stunt person is like seeing double.
But on closer inspection the extra happens to be a man.
The pair struck remarkable similarities with both their physiques clad in tight black leggings and matching black zip tops.
The male extra even had his long brown hair braided at the side, just like the American Idol judge.
He watched intently as Jennifer hopped into the back of a pick-up truck for the music video clip.
Jennifer has been filming the clip for the last couple of days, and it hasn't been just her male stunt double that has had his eyes on the gorgeous Latina lovely.
The singer's toyboy lover Casper Smart has been with his girlfriend on the Acapulco set since she filming started over the weekend.
Rival models already have the knives out for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover beauty Kate Upton. There was a frosty atmosphere during a launch event last month in front of Caesars Palace in Vegas for this year’s issue.
Sources said when the 18 SI models, including Izabel Goulart, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen, Anne V., Genevieve Morton and Julie Henderson lined up for a photo, Upton, standing on one side, was asked to move to the middle of the group by a producer.
Upton, at first, was hesitant but moved after further prompting. But some of the ladies at the shoot weren’t pleased at making space — an onlooker said one model rolled her eyes while another mumbled under her breath.
When Upton asked what she said, the model snapped, “Don’t worry about me, honey, cause I’m not worrying about you!” A rep for Upton didn’t get back to us.
An SI rep said, “If there were words exchanged, it’s news to me. Kate was elegant and a complete force of spirit throughout the launch.”

For TIME Style & Design’s fashion shoot with British actors Tom Hiddleston and Michelle Dockery, photographer Jonathan de Villiers got to work on the roof of what is the tallest hospital in the world, Guy’s Hospital in London. And that wasn’t the only superlative in play: “This is, dare I say it, one of the best periods for British fashion,” says de Villiers. “There’s a whole crop of new young designers.”
Fittingly for forward-looking designers, the shoot’s concept involved time travel from the future. The photographer, who hails from London but now lives in Paris, says that the city has recently embraced its own relationship with the future: in the last decade, the city seems to have recovered from backlash against ’60s modernism, he says, and its architecture has moved in a more avant-garde direction. Much of de Villiers’ work in Paris has to do with clichés about the fantasy of the city of lights, and he says that it was fun to get a chance to engage in similar reflection about his hometown—even if its archetypes are stuffier.
“People think of London as a very traditional city with a lot of old stuff, but in the last decade there’s been a kind of re-imagining,” he says. ”I think the most interesting thing to be said about this shoot is the whole question of projecting ideas about a place and how that carries through to clothes and perceptions of design.”
But for this shoot de Villiers’ vision of the future also had to conquer the present—or at least the present-day weather. Although the shoot featured British fashion designers’ spring/summer collections, it was very much winter. “It was bitterly cold at ground level, and I could see the clouds racing across the sky, and I was thinking ‘Oh my God, by the time we get up on that roof it’s going to be crippling,” says de Villiers of the rooftop shoot. “But the actors were quite game and the sun came out and everything.”
World-renowned R&B singer Rihanna called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to talk about her aspirations in fashion, film, and for the first time discussed how the controversial collaboration with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown came to be.
On Collaborating With Chris Brown:
“The first song that came about was ‘Birthday Cake.’ I mean we ended up recording them at the same time and executing them together, but I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really–it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician despite everything else that was going to be the person. You know I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track, and then in turn he was like ‘Why don’t you do the remix to my track?’ and it was a trade off. We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans, and that way our fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s music, and it’s innocent.”

Keira Knightley is in early talks to star in Lasse Hallström‘s adaptation of Nicholas Sparks‘ novel Safe Haven. Knightley would play a young woman with a dark past who arrives in a small North Carolina town, and reluctantly begins a relationship with a widowed store owner and his two children, and a friendship with her plainspoken neighbor. Hallström is currently finishing up work on his Swedish crime thriller The Hypnotist, and Twitch reports that he plans to start shooting Safe Haven in May. Safe Haven is Hallström’s second time working from a Sparks novel having previously directed 2010′s Dear John. Knightley will next be seen this summer in the apocalyptic romantic comedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and this fall in Joe Wright‘s adaptation of Anna Karenina.
Safe Haven is due out on Valentine’s Day 2013.

Wasn’t it just months ago that Steven Spielberg seemed to have moved beyond the idea of tinkering with old movies? At a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark last year, Spielberg said he regretted digitally altering E.T., and suggested that future home video releases of that and Raiders would be their original ’81 and ’82 versions.
But we’re still going to get a 3D version of Jurassic Park. The film was just dated for re-release today, and will hit theaters on July 19, 2013 according to Jeff Sneider of Variety. Spielberg did also say last year that the only one of his films he’s interested in post-converting to 3D is the original Jurassic Park. But at that point, it seemed like only an idea.
Granted, if done well, the experience could be a good one, but without seeing any footage there’s no way to tell at this point. We’ve got no info on when the first 3D footage might show up, but Comic Con is a safe guess.

[...] The sexual harassment occurred when women would be taking pictures with him; he would grab butt cheeks during the picture taking and when women reacted negatively to that, he would proceed to either touch women's breasts or tell them that he "loved them." He told me that he loved me because his wife's name is also Sara. Classy.

A style icon who favoured old sweaters, the Hollywood star-turned-princess was full of paradoxes, friend and fellow actress Rita Gam tells Nick Miller.
"They used to have stories. Today we don't have stories as good as that," says Rita Gam, 84-year-old star from Hollywood's golden age, sitting upright and respectable in her New York apartment as she remembers past roles. "Even though some of them were B pictures they were terrific - nice stories, interesting."
But I'm not there to hear that story. I'm there to talk to Gam about her close friend, Grace Kelly. We're inside a 100-year-old block in midtown, with an ornate facade, a concierge and that old New York attitude, in an apartment decorated with movie posters from Hollywood's prime.

This, we love. Modern Family boss Steve Levitan confirms to us that Britney Spears has indeed asked to come on the hit ABC comedy, but that’s not all: The likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt could also be on board!
Levitan hints that some other “big stars” have asked to guest star, and the names may surprise you…
“Quite a few really impressive people have come to us,” Levitan hinted to me at last night’s Paley Festival honoring the series. When asked if one of them might be George Clooney, Julia Roberts or Brad Pitt, Levitan’s eyes lit up all crazy and he couldn’t stop himself from uttering: “You’ve gotten...you’ve hit on a couple!”
Zing! So wait a minute, is Modern Family really turning down stars like Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Britney Spears and George Clooney?!
“We just want to wait until it’s the exact right role for the right person,” Levitan explains. “[They are] not turned down, we’re just waiting for it to be right.”
He also specifically says of Britney that her camp called up to ask right at the end of the season, so it was too late for this year. As for next season, “Who knows? If the right thing comes along. If we use someone like Britney Spears who is just such a presence, we need to make sure that it’s OK for us and works within our show. That there’s some fresh take on using her in the show.”
Levitan adds: “It’s very flattering that any big stars want to come on our show.”

What began as a story inspired by a piece of Twilight fan-fiction, then turned into a best-selling eBook dubbed “mommy porn” by The New York Times, has now become a hot property in Hollywood.
Fifty Shades of Grey, written by E.L. James, is about the sexual escapades of two twenty-year olds. Originally posted online as a riff on the Twilight fan-fiction series Masters of the Universe, the story soon got picked up as an eBook, spawned two sequels and sold over a quarter of a million copies online. It’ll be published as a paperback later this year and, according to reports, the author and producers are currently setting up meetings with studios such as Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Fox to talk about purchasing the film rights.

Prince Harry spoke to CBS News after a 10-day trip to the Caribbean and South America representing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The successful trip marked Harry's first extended solo tour on behalf of the queen.
Harry's comments received wide attention in the British press Wednesday when he noted that it would be hard for a potential serious girlfriend to put up with his royal role. He said it would be difficult to find someone willing to take on the challenge.
Asked if royalty lived up to the fairytale, Harry said: "No, not at all. As any girl would ever tell you. It's sort of, 'Oh my God, he's a prince.' But no. The job that it entails - I mean look at me, I'm 27 years old, and not so much searching for someone to fulfill the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on."
Harry said he and William know they were born to great privilege and also have serious responsibilities.
"There's a lot of times that both myself and my brother wish, obviously, that we were just completely normal," he said, adding that he and William hope to use their charitable work to help the less fortunate.
Harry praised the queen and said her grandchildren might take her out for a night on the town to mark her Jubilee.

Paramount Pictures has acquired the action-heist spec script Swindle, which will be developed by Moneyball producer Michael De Luca as a star vehicle for Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana. The actresses will produce with De Luca. Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson wrote the script.
The storyline is being kept under wraps but the spec sold after both Universal and Paramount chased it. The project came out of a desire by Fox and Saldana to do a movie together. Fox is currently starring in Friends With Kids, and next stars opposite Sacha Baron Cohen in the Paramount comedy The Dictator and the Judd Apatow-directed ensemble comedy This Is Forty with Paul Rudd, Chris O’Dowd, and Leslie Mann. She has bounced back nicely after leaving the Transformers franchise.

The whole point of the formula is to predict a celebrity couple's longevity. Crucial factors in determining whether a celebrity couple will split include the wife's "tabloid fame" ... " the spouses' combined age (younger couples divorce sooner), the length of the courtship (quicker to wed, quicker to split), and the sex-symbol factor (defined formally as the number of Google hits showing the wife 'in clothing designed to elicit libidinous intent')."
So, in nerd-speak, which couples have the best chance of making it to their 15th wedding anniversary?
* Prince William and Kate Middleton, 71%
* Calista Flockhart and Harison Ford, 64%
* Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham, 64%
* Jay-Z and Beyonce, 55%
* *Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, 51%
Here are some of the couples that don't fare as well:
* Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, 10%
* Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, 9%
* LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, 8%
* Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, 8%
* Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, 1%
Says one of the experts, "I've calculated the chance of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom celebrating their [50th] anniversary. Even when I extend it to 15 decimal places, the probability is still zero." Ouch.

Fleetwood Mac founder Mick Fleetwood fears the supergroup will never tour again because bandmate Stevie Nicks won't give up her latest solo dream.
The drummer reveals he and his bandmates were preparing for a major world trek in 2010 but then Nicks announced she was releasing a solo album and the plans stalled.
Two years later and Nicks is still touring on the back of her 2011 release, In Dreams, and has tour dates with Rod Stewart scheduled.
And Fleetwood, who performed on his bandmate's latest solo album, thinks the moment for a reunion tour has passed.
He tells Playboy magazine, "I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do. We have rehearsed and prepared for it since 2010. We were supposed to tour in 2011, but we delayed it for a year to allow Stevie Nicks to support her solo record and for Lindsey Buckingham to do the same with his.
"I've always been supportive of my bandmates doing solo albums, so long as we kept our band together... I played drums on most of Stevie's album, the one she is still out there supporting and the one that is the reason that, for now, she refuses to do a Fleetwood Mac tour. It comes down to her.
"Stevie is really proud of her new album, and I get that, but she will not let it go... She's insistent upon working it (album) until it is incapable of growing further.
"I understand what she likes about her situation: Touring in support of her album, she is able to be her, without any degree of compromise. She doesn't have to worry about the other three of us asking her to do anything... She has become obsessed with her album in a very nice but inconvenient way."
I would love to see Fleetwood Mac live, but I don't mind Stevie touring to promote her recent album... at least there's something to promote. If FM aren't planning on going in the studio anytime soon, any tour would just be a rehash of what came around in '09-'10..
but really this article should just be called "Mick Fleetwood wants money (and can't get any without Stevie)"

Though the weather might be turning nice, we know that what you still really want to do is stay indoors and sit on the couch. With that in mind, let's take a look at seven new (and three returning) television shows that could occupy your time until the warm embrace of summer comes and forces you out of the house.
Missing (3/15, 8pm, ABC)
What It Is: Liam Neeson puts on a strikingly believable Ashley Judd costume and does a TV version of Taken. (Maggie Grace puts on a slightly less convincing teenage boy costume.) The story is that, ten years after her husband (Sean Bean) is killed in a mysterious car bombing, a retired CIA agent's son goes missing while studying abroad. So she takes to Europe and starts crackin' skulls. Ashley Judd (aka Liam Neeson) isn't exactly the go-to name for action (or anything else these days, really), but we guess the fun is in finding out if she can sell it.
Should You Watch It: This definitely merits at least a first-episode viewing, we think. Judd's always been oddly appealing, and the potentially globe-trotting, jujitsu-kicking setup seems like a lark. Action serials don't always work on television, but as a more rah-rah and less complex Alias(lady butt-kickers and all), this could do the trick. It's the spring! Who needs moral complexity? Give her back her son!

Ever since Justin Bieber arrived in Florida to visit his girlfriend Selena Gomez, the couple have been looking so loved up. However, it appears as though the normally cute couple weren't feeling the love for each other when they started fighting with each other outside a sports bar yesterday.
According to reports, the couple headed to the sports bar with Selena's 'Springbreakers' co-star Ashley Benson and her boyfriend Ryan Good. However, things soon turned nasty after they had a few drinks.
Despite the subject of the fight being unknown, Yahoo! reports an onlooker as saying:
"Justin stormed out of the bar and Selena chased him to the car. His security team drove them down the street to an alley where they had a private conversation. They then returned to the restaurant and upon leaving they all seem like they had a little too much to drink even though they aren't old enough to drink."
Meanwhile, Ashley and her boyfriend seemed to enjoy the night as Ryan was pictured leaving the club topless and stuffing chips into his mouth!
We hope Justin and Selena sorted their issues out!

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS.
EDIT: FOOLISH SONY, YOUTUBERS CAN UPLOAD FASTER THAN YOU CAN REMOVE. >:c
'My bum's ready!" says Harry Styles, one fifth of One Direction, face down on the floor of the band's dressing room. He has yanked his Calvin Kleins down just a touch to reveal the top of his bottom, waiting for a doctor to arrive to administer a V12 vitamin shot. It's a sight that several million teenage girls around the world would die for; several hundred are right this minute camped outside every entrance to Radio City Hall in New York City, sending themselves into paroxysms at the thought of the merest glimpse of these boys. So no matter that to an observer more than twice the age of dreamboat Harry, he has the mien of a normal 18-year-old, goofing and lolling about, albeit one with recourse to expert medical assistance to boost his flagging energy levels.

Somebody unleashed a beast in Irish comedian Chris O'Dowd. The "Bridesmaids" funnyman, who shares the screen with "Transformers" star Megan Fox in both "Friends With Kids" and the upcoming "This Is Forty," isn't interested in playing politics. When asked about Bay and Fox's spat, which led Fox to exit the multi-billion-dollar franchise, O'Dowd selected his words in much the same way Bay directs his movies.
"I don't know the ins and outs of it but it's all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay," he said in regards to Fox's dismissal." But who wouldn't have a fallout with him? It's one of the sexist things [sic] I've ever seen. She called him an asshole. Well, he is a fucking asshole. She's not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?"
O'Dowd no doubt gets around, so by acknowledging that others have called Bay a "fucking asshole," he'll likely be greeted with a series of quiet nods. Or maybe it's just the "Bridesmaids" and "Friends With Kids" boys who are opinionated (Jon Hamm recently weighed in on Kim Kardashian).
Of course, Bay is a mega-huge filmmaker who commands $100 million budgets and massive star-studded casts, and he's got a number of popular friends in high places. But that doesn't faze O'Dowd all that much. "I would never fucking watch his films, never mind go and act in them." Succint, and to the point. Your move, Mr. Bay.
Love this show! What did you think about tonight's episode?
The world has lost a little bit of ugly.
Yoda, the reigning World's Ugliest Dog, died Saturday. She was 15.
The 1.8-lb. mutt, possibly a mix of teacup Chihuahua and Chinese crested, won the title at the famed contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair last year.
"Say a prayer today 4 my YODA...rest in peace 3-10-12," her owner, Terry Schumacher, wrote in an e-mail obtained by California's Hanford Sentinel. "She passed away last night in her sleep. I will miss her funny little ways! But comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad, who loved her so much! Her memories will live on forever!!!"
Yoda, an improbable creature, won the title of World's Ugliest Dog on her first try. "I've had a lot of friends over the years ask me to enter her into the contest," Schumacher told PEOPLE last year. "But she's not ugly – she's cute!"
