I feel like I'm posting this at a bad time, oh well. This movie looks amazing, hope it lives up to what I've seen so far! Isla and Jesse are adorable together - they remind me of a goth version of Ariel and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid :P Word is that Paris, France may be their last filming location, but I don't know when they're going to go there. (BTW, I have more Jesse news to post, but I think it's enough for now, plus, I'm not sure how many other people are really going to care anyway.)

Rob Fusari, Gaga's "creator" goes IN on Lady Gaga

The super-producer who claimed he created Lady Gaga has gone on a week-long ATTACK against the singer.

Last week, Fusari tweeted that he would be leaking several unreleased Gaga songs from 2006 and 2007. But, as Mr. Fusari continued to talk about these tracks, his motives became clear. Last night, Mr. Fusari decided to go on a Twitter rant, where he accused Gaga of being “fake” and implying that she needs auto-tune. As the hours passed, the bigger picture started to come together. Mr. Fusari is not releasing these songs because he wants to, he’s releasing these songs because he wants to hurt Gaga. A Twitter fan asked him if Gaga knew about him releasing the songs and if she would be angry and he replied with, “She already is.”

NOW Fusari made mention of Lina Morgana, the woman who collaborated with Gaga before killing herself. Her mother claimed Gaga stole Lina's act. Gaga later claimed that her death haunts her. Fusari stated "Lina was about to be the best thing that ever happened to music".

Which White Rapper is the Heir to Eminem's Throne

Eminem has been the Great White Rapper for quite some time now. That was a title that was up for grabs since “Rapper’s Delight” dropped. It has changed hands many times; from the Beastie Boys to...um...uhh...Eminem. Alright, so maybe there haven’t been that many great white rappers. So Eminem’s current status as the greatest white rapper ever (and perhaps the greatest rapper ever) has some serious significance.

There is a God and He is good- RHOBH Post

Taylor Armstrong Distraught About Being Phased Out Of RHOBH; Learned Of Bravo’s Plan By Reading Tabloids! Plus Adrienne To Relocate Her NBA Team!

Following yesterday’s report that Taylor Armstrong will be “phased out” of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the reality trainwreck star is freaking out. Even worse, Taylor allegedly found out about Bravo’s plan to gradually remove her from the cast from reading the tabloids! Oops—that’s gotta sting!

Upon hearing the gossip, Taylor immediately got on the phone to Bravo producers for reassurance, only to be told that the rumor was kinda true! “Taylor called because she was certain that there was no way that she was going to be phased out,” a source close to the reality star reveals to RadarOnline. “However, when she spoke with the higher ups they didn’t deny that she would be featured on the show in a much more limited capacity with a much smaller role.

The news is devastating to Taylor, who is under contract for another year and will not be eligible to secure any other TV deals until released! “Taylor now knows that her days on the show are numbered. She is extremely upset because she just signed a contract extension for season three, but she wasn’t made aware of Bravo’s plans for her. She absolutely freaked out because she counts on the show as her primary source of income and uses it as a platform to secure other endorsement deals.” Uh-oh!

"It was incredible," Tebow told the newspaper. "It's humbling. You don't feel worthy, but when people care about your cause and know that you're trying to do something for other people it's amazing to see what can happen."

Erin Martin Slams 'The Voice' After Elimination: 'I'm Over It'

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. -- Erin Martin proved to be a polarizing figure on NBC’s “The Voice,” and following her elimination on Tuesday’s show, the aspiring singer fueled the fire with less-than-kind words for the reality competition and her coach.

“Oh my God, I’m so glad to be over this competition. Yes, I’m over it,” Erin told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman after Tuesday’s “The Voice” in Los Angeles, when asked if it was difficult to hear she’d been booted from the hit show. “[For] the blind audition I gave a fabulous performance, and for my last song I gave a fabulous performance, and for both of those songs I chose my song and the chips — not the chips, but like, the control was in my hands of the song and like, you know, how I sang it.

“When I gave that creative control over, it kind of just didn’t really go so well,” she added.

The former model also blamed her “Voice” coach, Cee Lo Green (and his song choices), for her early exit.

“I think it was a good lesson for Cee Lo in this particular instance that, you know, when you come across a voice like mine, you have to really nurture it and he wasn’t the right person to do that,” she said. “No offense to him, it just, he wasn’t… I’m the right person to nurture my voice.”

While Erin believes her song choice (Elton John’s beloved ballad, “Your Song”) was an excellent pick for her last chance performance, Cee Lo disagreed.

“Those were some big shoes to fill on that particular song and, you know, it wasn’t the best performance,” he told Laura of Erin’s final performance. “But it doesn’t make her a terrible artist or a terrible singer.”

“The Voice” returns Monday at 8/7c on NBC.


If you're the only person who can nurture your voice, why go on a show that's all about being coached by someone else? Take your overdone warble and have a seat, girl.

Her performance was amazing. It sucks her DJ messed up and played 212 early. She ended her set 25 minutes early. She didn't have to end with 212 she should have kept going. lol

Why you should go see Cabin In the Woods ASAP

Positive reviews and word-of-mouth may power Lionsgate's "The Cabin in the Woods" at the box office this weekend, although it's unlikely to knock "The Hunger Games" out of the top perch.

The much-buzzed-about horror film, about five friends vacationing together in a remote location, features a screenplay co-written by Joss Whedon that puts an unexpected twist on the horror-film genre.

Here's what some of the reviewers are saying:

A.O. Scott of The New York Times: "Dismissing the recent vogue for technically crude, fake-real shockers in the "Paranormal Activity" manner - and sidestepping the gory sadism of the torture subgenre of the "Saw" and "Hostel" pictures - this movie evokes the playful pseudosophistication of the "Scream" franchise.

Seriously guys, GO SEE THIS MOVIE. It is fantastic and like nothing you would ever expect! Totally a film you should experience in the theatre.

Sarah Silverman supports pro-choice debate, tweets 'before-and-after abortion' photos

Sarah Silverman has made a comedic career out of being as controversial and outrageous as humanly conceivable, often using subject matter such as rape, the Holocaust, and child molestation as the punchlines for her jokes.

Coming Soon: New Zealand's version of Jersey Shore

More details have emerged about a new local reality series that delves into the lives of young Maori living their dream on the Gold Coast.

The GC - similar to Jersey Shore only not so trashy - follows the nine 20-somethings as they work and party hard with the goal of retiring sometime in their 30s.

No on-screen date has been set but the NZ On Air-funded show starts on TV3 sometime soon.

Though the Mozzies - aka Maori Aussies - play hard in Australia's "ultimate party town" they are focused on business ventures and building their own personal empires.

They have not forgotten their roots and wear their tattoos proudly, acknowledge their iwi affiliations, and use te reo as well as GC slang.

Cast members include single rugby player Tame Noema, musician DJ Tuini, former X Factor contestants Jade Louise and Nuz, personal trainer Alby Waititi and singer Nate.

Their favourite phrases include "mumsies" (meaning girlfriends), "neff" (friend), "creep on" (scoring girls), "publics" (pubic hair) and "what doing?" (what's up?).

The official website for The GC says Tame is the only single member of the cast, "which causes much angst for Jade and Zane's girlfriends as he's always trying to drag them out on his chick-chasing escapades".

The show's producers promise "hot hook-ups, a shock revelation from one of the group about their sexuality, all-over tans, and advice on how to score in a club, of course."

Dannii Minogue and Simon Cowell had brief love affair back in 2008

Simon Cowell has revealed that he felt 'genuine love' for Dannii Minogue as it emerges that he had a love affair with the singer.
The music mogul, 52, has admitted he felt 'like a schoolboy' around the Australian star during her time as a judge on the X Factor.

Details of the affair have been revealed in a book entitled The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, written by former BBC journalist Tom Bower, but Cowell clearly isn't worried about the publication.

Via Deadline.com: Universal’s Battleship continues to screen strongly overseas with estimates from Day 2 and Day 3 bringing the 72-hour total to $58 million with all 26 international territories now open. Director Peter Berg’s military vs alien actioner opened to #1 in 24 of those new territories.

Amanda Bynes’ Arrest Was A Culmination Of Bad Behavior

When Amanda Bynes was arrested this past week on charges of driving under the influence (DUI), many fans of the actress were shocked to discover that the woman who typically plays sweet, loving (if not sometimes flawed) characters on TV and in movies was capable of such an act, upon further investigation however we should have seen this coming for at least the last six months.

A source close to the Bynes family recently told RadarOnline:

Amanda has been in a downward spiral for the last six months. Even though her dad publicly said she doesn’t drink, he knows she has a problem. It’s truly sad to witness. Amanda has been told she must go to rehab, but she is refusing. She is not the same girl as she was a year ago. She is just doing whatever she wants to do. Friends are concerned because she is not the Amanda they know.”

♕ Britney Spears gives $100 tip to waiter + 'Twister' director addresses body double rumours.

Britney Spears gave a waiter $100 after he helped calm down her five-year-old son Jayden. The Hold It Against Me singer was out eating at a restaurant in San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles with Jayden and six-year-old son Sean when her youngest began crying and wouldn't stop.

However, an intrepid employee at the establishment saw the problem and brought over crayons to distract the youngster, impressing Britney who gave him the generous gift after she finished with her meal.

An onlooker told the National Enquirer magazine: "Britney just couldn't calm her tyke down. "But a sympathetic waiter, not one assigned to her table, helped save the day when he came over with a box of crayons and started drawing animation action characters. Jayden's tears dried up instantly as he and his brother got totally absorbed and happy." Britney - who became engaged to long-term boyfriend and manager Jason Trawick in Las Vegas last December - gave the money in addition to the tip for the meal.

The star is currently believed to be in negotiations to become a judge on the US version of X Factor, following the departure of Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul from the panel.

photos from Hunter Parrish's last performance in Godspell

Hunter Parrish tags on social media have been filled with tears, goodbyes, and essays on how much he means to his fans. (And how he's so kind to them that several of them actually believe they are "friends" with him.) Twitter saw posts from Godspell cast members showing their love for their castmate and fans tweeting #MyFaveHunterMemory.

April 15th he ended his 6 month run in Broadway's first ever Godspell revival. I didn't go to tonight's performance but I went a couple of times the week before and a couple of times back in February. He's so fantastic in this production (check out the official 2011 Broadway Cast recording if you haven't already) and treats everyone like they're special when they meet him after the show. It was an experience not to be missed for Hunter Parrish fans and an experience to do several times over for many of them.
