X-Factor Focusing Their Sights On Rihanna




HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that ‘X Factor’ producers want Rihanna on the panel — and Britney Spears is out of the running.

Could Rihanna find herself sitting pretty next to Simon Cowell this fall? An insider at The X Factor tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that negotiations have started for the “Birthday Cake” singer to be added to the show’s illustrious panel — which is pretty vacant after Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were fired from the show.


Our source adds that discussions for Britney Spears to also join the panel are “pretty much dead.” But that’s OK — We need Britney to focus on making new music!

What do YOU think? Would Rihanna make a great addition to The X Factor panel?

Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell might be married?


During the weekend Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell were spotted taking a stroll over the weekend, and they are wearing what looks like wedding bands. There were rumors of them being engaged not so long ago.

E! News verified that there have been no marriage licenses filed for the couple in Los Angeles. Maybe it's just a random accessory, a promise ring or they got married in a super-secret Hollywood wedding.

Wood tweeted earlier today, "A picture says a thousand words doesn't it?"

Whoopi Goldberg Set to Play Rachel and Kurt's [Spoiler] in Glee's May Sweeps Arc

 


Rachel and Kurt’s post-McKinley fate rests in Whoopi Goldberg‘s hands.

Glee sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the Oscar winning actress-turned-View master has signed on for an extremely pivotal multi-episode arc.

[Spoiler (click to open)]
Goldberg will play Carmen Tibideaux, a theatrical grande dame and a professor at New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA) who travels to Ohio to preside over Kurt and Rachel’s auditions — and apparently she sticks around long enough to deliver a verdict: I’m told she’ll appear in roughly three episodes, the first of which is set to air on May 1.


Fun fact: The New York-based Goldberg accepted the gig despite her well documented fear of flying (Glee shoots in Los Angeles). Of course, last month she headed West to shoot an episode of The Middle playing Sue’s guidance counselor (it airs May 2), so perhaps she’s developing a friendlier relationship with the skies?

Prior to the back-to-back Glee/Middle stints, Goldberg’s last scripted TV series role was in Benjamin Bratt’s A&E drama The Cleaner.

Glee Casts Lindsay Lohan to Play [Spoiler]

 


Glee is going Lindsane.

The Fox hit is in final negotiations with Lindsay Lohan to guest star in one of this season’s final episodes, TVLine has learned exclusively. What’s more, she’ll be playing the role she was born to: herself!

An insider at the Fox hit confirms that, if the deal is sealed, the movie star-turned-tabloid queen — once famously the butt of a joke on the show — will serve as a celebrity judge at Nationals. Although there’s no word yet as to who might be joining Lohan on the panel, past judges for the annual season-ending competition have included Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John.

The Glee gig would mark the latest leg of the troubled actress’ Hollywood comeback, which got underway last month when she hosted Saturday Night Live. Her last scripted TV gig was a 2008 arc on Ugly Betty. She’s currently in talks to play acting legend Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic.

Rihanna takes tube to go to Drake's london show



Rihanna was up to her old tricks in London last night (27th March) as she caught the tube to pal Drake's concert at London's O2 Arena.


The Bajan babe, who has previously travelled on the underground to her own stint at the venue last year, boarded a Jubilee line train from Waterloo to North Greenwhich - surprising many passengers.

Not one to shy away from the cameras, RiRi wore hot pants, thigh-high boots and a flame print t-shirt to the gig, where the likes of Tulisa Contostavlos, Florence Welch and JLS were all in attendance.

Once Drizzy's show was over, the 24-year old once again hopped on the tube for the Take Care rapper's after party at Mayfair haunt, Low.

Earlier this month, Rihanna confessed in an interview with Jonathan Ross that she enjoyed getting the tube when in the capital as she likes interacting with her fans.

She explained: "There is so much traffic, it is an hour-and-a-half approximately to the London O2 every time and it is 10-15 minutes on the Tube,

"I hate waking up early and I am always late so the Tube is 10 minutes. Me and my fans all went to the concert, that was the coolest part definitely,

"I enjoyed it, I was painless. I'm not afraid of interacting with people, it's harmless. I feel people only act crazy when you treat them crazy."

ONE Direction heart-throb Niall Horan is seething after being ordered off nookie by American record bosses.

The boyband cutie had been set to put his Westmeath charm into overdrive in the US — with hordes of randy female fans ready to keep him Up All Night.

Instead, Mullingar lad Niall, 18, and his single bandmates have been banned from sex while they try to conquer the States.

Record execs, who are desperate to protect One Direction's clean-cut image, have handed the stars a strict set of rules to keep their rise to superstardom on course.

And the four singletons in the band — Niall, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson* — have been ordered: No girlfriends and definitely no sex.

Darren Aronofsky to Direct Anne Hathaway in Judy Garland Biopic



Darren Aronofsky is heading back to drama, and you can’t blame him after he struck it big with 2010′s “Black Swan.” Now, he is in business with the Oscar veterans at the Weinstein Co., which have tapped Aronofsky to direct GET HAPPY, the anticipated Judy Garland biopic starring Anne Hathaway.

Earlier this month word was that Jaffe Cohen had signed on to pen the script, which is based on the book “Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland,” written by Gerald Clarke. The pic will follow the true life story of American actress and singer Judy Garland, who, despite her professional triumphs, battled many personal problems, including a long running battle with drug and alcohol addiction, money woes and a string of divorces.

Kelly Carmichael will oversee for the Weinsteins.

Since the success of “Black Swan,” Aronofsky has been able to get his passion projet and bible epic, “Noah,” off the ground with Paramount and New Regency both on board. He will direct from a script he co-wrote with Ari Handel. Russell Crowe was recently confirmed for the role of Noah.

Aronofsky is attached to direct other projects around town, including “Jackie” for Fox Searchlight, which focuses on the assassination of John F. Kennedy from the perspective of his wife, Jackie Kennedy. He is also attached to direct “Human Nature,” a sci-fi/drama from Warner Bros. about a businessman, who awakens after being cryogenically frozen, to a world where humans are now treated like animals. George Clooney is attached to star in the pic.

"Awkward Black Girl" Attacked By Racists Tweets


The online series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” won the Shorty Award for Best Web Show, but before they could bask in the victory, the program was hit with a racist backlash. Monday (March 27) night, the show became the subject of a very disrespectful twitter trending topic, and cyber bullying.

Creator, writer, and star, Issa Rae’s series has garnered a cult following of fans, but unfortunately there are those that don’t want to see a Black project (with a multi-cultural cast we might add) do well. Under the hashtag #ThingsBetterThanAwkwardBlackGirl, a bunch of racists sore losers, who Rae beat out in the Best Web Show category, used the social networking site to spew hate.

Among the repeat, and most vocal offenders, was comedian and on-air personality Mersh who addressed his more than 10,000 Twitter followers with quips making light of everything from Trayvon Martin’s murder to Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna. Regardless of the hatred, no one can take away the win from the well-written “Awkward Black Girl” series.

10 Underrated Scream Queens

(From House of Geekery) Some of my favorite scream queens like Amber Heard, Jaimie King, and Emmanuelle Chriqui have been getting more exposure lately but there are plenty of underrated horror actresses who need a kick start to their celebrity status. Below are ten of my favorite underrated scream queens.

10. Melissa George (The Amityville Horror ’05, A Lonely Place to Die, Triangle, The Killing Gene,30 Days of Night, The Betrayed, Bag of Bones): It still boggles my mind that not everyone knows George’s name. She’s not only an accomplished horror actress, but she’s proven her worth in movies across the board. George always plays the strong competent woman that you want to root for and she does it damn well.


9. Emmanuelle Vaugier (Bind, Hysteria, Mirrors 2, Saw series, Masters of Horror, House of the Dead 2, Mindstorm, Ripper, Wishmaster 3, Fear 2): You may know her as Jake’s crazy babymama from One Tree Hill but Vaugier is actually a horror movie expert. Her horror movies may not be the most famous but she still has herself an impressive resume. Her exotic looks and penchant for looking terrified has earned Vaugier a spot on the underrated scream queen list.

Katy Perry 'Part of Me' video branded "propaganda for the Marines"



Katy Perry has been criticized by a feminist author for her latest music video.

The singer's visual for new single 'Part of Me' sees her joining the US Marines after discovering that her partner had cheated on her.

However, Naomi Wolf - who admitted that she used to be a fan of Perry - has criticized the star for the pro-military message included in the video.

Wolf stated on her official Facebook page: "Have you all seen the Katy Perry marines video? It is a total piece of propaganda for the Marines… I really want to find out if she was paid by them for making it… it is truly shameful.

"I would suggest a boycott of this singer who I really liked – if you are as offended at this glorification of violence as I am."


'Part of Me' reached number one in the US and UK upon its release and is included as one of three new tracks on Perry's new repackaged album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

SXSW Review: The Cabin in the Woods Is Your New Favorite Movie


From a movie buff’s perspective, The Cabin in the Woods represents the most exciting shake-up in the slasher genre since “Scream,” 16 years ago. But where Scream went one direction, introducing self-awareness to a formula that desperately needed it, Cabin in the Woods takes another route. Instead of characters who have seen slasher movies before and know what the “rules” are, we get a whole new configuration altogether.

Rihanna, Ashton Kutcher: Singer Rips Reporter For Relationship Question



Admit it: Somewhere deep inside you, there's a part of you that really wants to know whether Rihanna actually paid a 4 a.m. visit to Ashton Kutcher's house (you wouldn't have otherwise clicked on this article, hmm?). But such tabloid fodder rarely gets vocalized to a celebrity's face, which makes this press conference with Rihanna, in London to promote her new film "Battleship," all the more painful. In it, the "We Found Love" singer rips an intrepid reporter named "Sarah," who dares question the nature of RiRi and Kutcher's relationship.

Asks Sarah: "You're so good with connecting with people, that I think that we actually feel we know you. Things are clearly going brilliantly in your career. I just wondered if you are as happy in your private life. Will we be seeing a certain Mr. Kutcher perhaps making a trip over here?"

"Wow, how disappointing was that question," Rihanna answers, shaking her head.

A moderator then leaps in to interject, but not before RiRi spits out: "I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."

queen madge to debut at #1


She’s no longer “Like a Virgin,” or even the Material Girl, for that matter, but Madonna is still a pop diva superstar.

Madge’s Interscope debut, MDNA, her 12th studio album and first under a recently inked deal with Live Nation, is her first new collection in four years, since 2008’s Hard Candy. It’s a lock for #1 on next week’s HITS Album sales chart, with between 325-350k, beating that album’s 280k opening.

Those figures are based on one-day sales figures which our crack retail staff arrived at by throwing darts at a board. Take that, Soundscan!

Lionel Richie’s Mercury Nashville bow, Tuskegee, a collection of his greatest hits performed with country stars such as Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain, Willie Nelson and Jimmy Buffett, is the big surprise, with a robust first-week estimate in the 140-160k range. The album has even hit the #1 slot at iTunes over Madonna.

Veteran Atlantic Florida rockers Shinedown’s fourth studio album, Amaryllis, their first since 2008’s The Sound of Madness, is on track for first-week sales of 80-90k, easily topping that album’s 50k.

Hopeless’ The Used release Vulnerable, the Orem, UT, thrash-rockers’ fifth studio album and first since leaving their longtime label Warner Bros./Reprise, which looks to be in the 20-25k range.

Interscope’s veteran Oklahoma post-punks All-American Rejects’ fourth album, Kids in the Street, is slated to do between 17-20k, a striking comedown from their last, 2008’s When the World Comes Down, which did 112k its first week..

Prog-rocking Texas band The Mars Volta’s Noctourniquet, their sixth full-length album, and second from Warner Bros., is also in the 17-20k range.

Mercury/IDJ Canadian rock group My Darkest Days’ sophomore album, Sick and Twisted Affair, fueled by the hit single, “Porn Star Dancing,” should do between 12-15k

Winehouse's parents left with $4.7M




Tragic singer Amy Winehouse's parents are now $4.7 million richer because their daughter failed to make a will prior to her sudden death last year.

The Back to Black hitmaker's estate, worth an estimated $6.8 million, is to be handed over to Mitch and Janis Winehouse. After tax, that's a $4.7 million windfall.

According to probate documents, obtained by Britain's The Sun, the singer's embattled ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil will not see any of the funds.

A source says, "There aren't many 27-year-olds that make a will - and Amy didn't either. She had no idea how much money she had... Had she made a will, Blake may have well been left something - not cash, perhaps an investment.

"The way things are, Mitch and Janis have been handed the estate. They're sensible and shrewd so it's probably for the best Blake doesn't get anything."

The Grammy Award winner was found dead in her London home on July 23. Her death has since been ruled a misadventure.

Stanley Tucci is Emma Watson's 'Voice'



Warner Bros. is in negotiations Stanley Tucci to star alongside Emma Watson in the David Yates' pic "Your Voice in My Head."

Based on the memoirs by screenwriter Emma Forrest, the story revolves around a young who, after the demise of her relationship with a nationally respected journalist, attempts suicide before being saved by a terminally ill psychiatrist.

Tucci would play the psychiatrist. The film is still awaiting a greenlight -- which should be helped out significantly by these commitments.

Alison Owen would produce through her Ruby Films banner, with lensing expected to start sometime this summer.

The psychiatrist was a prestige role eyed by several actors -- including George Clooney -- before Yates eventually went to Tucci. Sources say Warners is already eyeing this as a major contender in the 2013 race, especially the best-actor slot.

Tucci can currently be seen in Lionsgate's "The Hunger Games."

How do you win the heart of a slender hipster brunette from one of TV's best-liked comedies?

Carson Daly Is A Homophobic Asshole... Or A Self Hating Asshole

Carson Daly does not believe gay people would have been able to restrain the pilot who freaked out on a recent JetBlue flight ... suggesting gays are simply not brave enough to handle dangerous situations.

It all went down on Daly's L.A. radio show this morning ... when he was talking about the flight and said, "Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas ... it was like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes ... thank god."

He laughingly continued, "With my luck, it would be like ... 'this is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco ... I mean, that would be my colleagues."

Then, changing his voice to sound like a gay stereotype, Carson said, "Uh, we're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention."

Carson's people had no comment. 

Update

3:10 PM PDT -- Carson has released a statement on Twitter ... saying, "This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize."

Jennie Garth: I Tried to Save Our Marriage

Jennie Garth: I Tried to Save Our Marriage

When Peter Facinelli told Jennie Garth last fall that he wanted a divorce, she at first refused to give in. 

"I was very resistant," she tells PEOPLE in an exclusive new interview. "I didn't want it to happen. It took me some time to come to peace with it." 

The couple, who wed in 2001, always had what looked like a storybook marriage. Parents to daughters Luca, 14, Lola, 9 and Fiona, 5, they dubbed themselves the Facinelli Five and reveled in family traditions that included camping in an RV, family movie nights and bingo tournaments. 

But over the past two years, as Facinelli's career was taking off (he plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight series and is a regular on Showtime's Nurse Jackie), the couple began spending more time apart. 

In 2010, Garth, 39, and their daughters moved to the family's Santa Ynez Valley, Calif., ranch house, while Facinelli, 38, commuted from Vancouver and New York City. 

"He would do everything he could to fly back every weekend," says Garth. "[But] it took a real toll on our marriage." 

Since then, "I've gone through my darkest parts and I'm coming out of it," says Garth, whose new CMT reality show Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country
, premieres on April 20. "I'm okay. I don't know what the future holds, but then I've never been a planner. And maybe that's a good thing."

Liam Neeson Officially Confirmed For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES



The Wrath of the Titans production notes officially confirm that Liam Neeson will be reprising his role of Ra's Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises.

"Neeson next appears in Peter Berg’s actioner “Battleship,” and he also will be seen in Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated action thriller “The Dark Knight Rises.”


Feel like you've heard this before? That's because in January, Liam Neeson told showbizspy.com, "I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously. I was on set for maybe an hour-and-a-half and the director didn’t tell me anything of what it’s about. So, I’m being very honest when I say I have no idea what’s going to happen.” Now, I read that quote and viewed it as confirmation that Liam was most certainly back, not like I had any doubts, but there were still people that said, "Well, technically he didn't actually say he IS in it." Okay, fine, well now we have Warner Bros.' Wrath of the Titans production notes, and they eliminate all doubt. You're welcome.

Queen Raven makes her BROADWAY DEBUT!

Raven begins a scheduled six-month run on Tuesday, but before she hits the stage (and the convent), EW caught up with the performer for a Q&A about the rehearsal process, stage fright and — yes — That’s So Raven.]

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me a little about how you ended up in Sister Act.
RAVEN-SYMONÉ: Well, I was driving down the 405 freeway in L.A. going home, and my manager calls me and says, “I just got an offer from Sister Act on Broadway.” And he started doing the managerial explaining of why I should, and why it’s a good move, and I was like, “Stop, stop, stop. No worries. No need to explain.” And that’s how it is, and here I am!

And this is, essentially, your Broadway debut. It’s your first leading role on Broadway.
Yes, in a sense. This is my first leading role on Broadway. I like that sentence, because I did something with the Boys Choir of Harlem when I was younger, and it was on Broadway, but it wasn’t for as long as this is. And I wasn’t the lead, so this is my first leading role!

How have rehearsals been? What’s been the most fun aspect, and what’s been the most challenging?
Working with everyone in the cast and crew is absolutely amazing, I have to say. That’s the most fun part, getting to know my new family for these next months and gaining these relationships. The director and the stage manager and everyone, they’re just fabulous. Working with the dance captain Louise [Madison] and all the understudies to help me get ready has definitely been a great process, learning the songs and learning the way of Broadway. It’s different than camera, but it’s still fun. It’s like a mixture of all the things that I’ve done over the years.

behind the scenes of michael pitt's prada campaign




Actor Michael Pitt is re-modelled as a Golden Age of Hollywood studio icon in this striking series of performative portraits for Prada's Spring/Summer menswear campaign.

The brooding star of Martin Scorsese's prohibition-era television epic Boardwalk Empire and Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers explores the language of male role models from the rock star to the playboy, from the self-reflective introvert to the engaging and humorous farceur.

These cinematic codes are revealed as the many sides and moods of Michael Pitt as well as the many aspects of men living in a post-modern period of extended leisure and work culture. Contemporary men work when they play and play when they work -- the boundaries are no longer clear -- as the campaign's simple props and gestures emphasise.

Shot by world-renowned fashion and portrait photographer David Sims, the images are presented in rich tones and deeply saturated colours echoing 1950s studio portraiture, and subtly referencing the celluloid iconography of the Prada Spring/Summer womenswear campaign.

Sam Worthington is Team Peeta



Sometimes, the streams of blockbuster fandom cross in unexpectedly marketable ways. Take The Hunger Games and Wrath of the Titans, for example. The Hunger Games made all types of goofy money last weekend, success that Wrath of the Titans is probably unlikely to replicate when it comes out in a few days. But speaking to the Huffington Post, Wrath star Sam Worthington knew exactly what to say to win over Hunger Games fans looking for a new buzz once they're worn out on second, third and fourth viewings of the film. "Go Team Peeta!" Worthington told his interviewer. "I almost wore my Hunger Games t-shirt today, but I was worried that Warner Bros. wouldn't like that."

Very crafty, Worthington, though the reasons behind his fandom are pretty cut-and-dry: Peeta's a dead serious guy who always buries his feelings for the sake of whatever has to be done, a life stance that Worthington seems to live to the max on a daily basis. For example: In Wrath, he suddenly shows up with long hair, after keeping his locks closely cut in Clash of the Titans. "I wanted it to be shaved because I thought, well, all of these other sword and sandal movies are coming out and everyone had the long hair and it looked a bit girly. So I thought we'd go completely opposite," he said in the HuffPost interview. "The problem is, we went too opposite. They said on one blog, 'You look like a jarhead out of place in this mythological time.' So, I take that into consideration and I grow the locks out."

Growing his hair out for the sake of fantasy realism, even though he didn't want to? That is method acting. That is getting the job done. Sam and Peeta, just two peas in a pod. Wrath of the Titans is out on Friday

SNL continues to practice diversity in hiring, introduces new cast member


Only four members of Saturday Night Live's thirteen-person cast are female, and two of those -- Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott -- may not be much longer for the series, as each has been booking extracurricular projects (though Elliot just fell out of the Fox pilot she'd booked a starring role in). With that in mind, Deadline reports that Lorne Michaels has been auditioning new women for the sketch show, and Big Gay Sketch Show veteran Kate McKinnon will join the cast for the next new episode.

Other comediennes who've been in the mix include Jessica Joy, Lauren Lapkus, and Elaine Carroll, and yes, the latter is from your favorite web series Very Mary-Kate, and yes again, Michaels still seems unable to find a single funny black woman. Maya Rudolph guest appearances only go so far, guys.

Wayne Coyne in Talks to Collaborate on Ke$ha's New LP

'She's a lot of fun and crazy and open to ideas,' says the Flaming Lips frontman




After joining forces with Ke$ha for the Flaming Lips' upcoming collaborative LP, Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends – due out on April 21st for Record Store Day – frontman Wayne Coyne says he may return the favor and work with the pop star on her own material.

"I'm talking with Ke$ha about doing some tracks on her new record," Coyne tells Rolling Stone. Along with rapper Biz Markie, they cut a track called "2012" for the album during a late February studio session in Nashville. "We knew that she was a fan," says Coyne. "She's a lot of fun and crazy and open to ideas and she's creative. She's all these things that you don't know."

Before he graced our eyes with his magnificent acting, Adrien Brody was a magician

Before he could be seen onscreen as the tortured Wladyslaw Szpilman in “The Pianist” or the effervescent Salvador Dali in “Midnight in Paris,” actor Adrien Brody was better known as “the Amazing Adrien.”

He was 11 years old when he first performed for others. “I did a birthday party for a younger kid and I made $50. I though I was legit,” said Brody.

The King of The North Comes Out of His Hole, & Brings The Doctor's New Companion With Him

On March 27th, Richard Madden (Game of Throne's Robb Stark) made an oh-so-rare appearance, walking the red carpet at the London Titanic 3-D premiere, with Brit actress, Jenna-Louise Coleman, on his arm. Tis a pre-Easter miracle!  (Or one arranged by HBO publicists to get the man seen before Got's 4/1 premiere!)

Abercrombie & Fitch Promo Clip Features Gay Kiss Between Two Models



Abercrombie & Fitch is globally renowned for using homoerotic imagery to promote its sporty apparel -- but in its latest round of advertisements, the clothing retailer is going an extra step by featuring a kiss between two shirtless hunks.

Shot by famed photographer Bruce Weber, the steamy new clip depicts a number of male models wrestling each other to the ground and in the shower before the smooch, which is actually quite tame compared to some of the more provocative poses struck by the men throughout the video.
