Roberto Cavalli blasts U.S style and says Anna Wintour is to blame

Roberto Cavalli: 'American fashion is terrible, you can't look at it!'

Roberto Cavalli approves of neither American fashion not its arbiter, Queen Anna Wintour.

In a video interview aired on D, the weekly style magazine from Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the flamboyant Italian designer unleashed a tirade of abuse against the U.S. industry.

‘Just look at American fashion,' he said, 'which is almost fashion. It's terrible and you almost can't look at it.’

But there was more to come: 'It has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and to dress the way she does.

Penélope Cruz may join "The Counselor"

Cruz is the frontrunner for a role in a gritty drama that will also star Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

Penélope Cruz may be re-teaming with husband Javier Bardem for The Counselor, the drug drama from Cormac McCarthy and Ridley Scott.

The drama is one of the town’s hottest projects, partly due to the speed of it coming together, thanks in part to the star power associated with it.
McCarthy surprised his agents earlier this year with not a new book but a script, which was quickly picked up by producers Nick Wechsler and Paula Mae Schwartz.

Scott then decided to make it his next project, bringing with him Michael Fassbender, with whom he had just finished Prometheus. Brad Pitt and Bardem also quickly hopped on the train.

The story, like McCarthy’s No County for Old Men is set along the Mexican border and centers on an attorney (Fassbender), a good man in need of money who decides to dabble in the cocaine trade. He teams up with a rich acquaintance (Bardem) for the new business that also brings in a shady type (Pitt). Things don’t go as planned in what is described as a dialogue-heavy, violent and racy script.

Lady Gaga arrives in South Korea looking fabulous

SEOUL - US pop diva Lady Gaga arrived in South Korea late Friday, one week before a Seoul performance which will kick off her third concert tour.

The singer, wearing a floor-length low-cut white dress, white gloves and a pearl-encrusted mask, blew kisses to fans at Seoul's Gimpo airport who tried to snap her image on smartphones.

Her schedule in South Korea for the coming week was unclear and concert organisers Hyundai Card declined to give details.

"The Born This Way Ball" tour begins on April 27 at Seoul's Olympic Stadium.

From there Lady Gaga will take her hits and extravagant costumes to Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia, and then on to 21 European cities.

Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer: Margaery Supports Renly and Loras' Love

Natalie Dormer may have been topless during one of her first scenes in Game of Thrones, but it was her character's attitude about sex with her husband that made the biggest impression.

In Sunday's episode, Dormer had to play the not-so-shy virgin Margaery Tyrell, who tries to consummate her marriage with Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony). When he can't quite rise to the occasion, she offers to enlist the help of her brother Loras (Finn Jones), who just so happens to be Renly's lover.

"I think she's empathetic and understanding. There is no malice, there is no anger toward Renly and his love for her brother," Dormer tells TVGuide.com. "The family bonds between the Tyrells is incredibly strong. She has a lot of love and respect for Loras, and since Loras chooses Renly to love, I think she tries to be supportive.

"The political aspect is a practicality of the marriage in order to benefit all parties, to benefit their house, to benefit Renly. The Baratheons may be the future of Westeros," she continues. "I think that she genuinely sees that they can be a trinity and that they can work as three. They say that the strongest shape is a triangle, so I think she believes there is an exciting, plausible future of the three of them working together."

Check out what else Dormer has to say about Margaery's practicality, locking horns with Littlefinger and wearing that plunging neckline.

Frank Ocean - Thinking About You

Frank Ocean's slow-motion song of devotion “Thinking About You” has a complex history. First written for R&B vocalist Bridgett Kelly, Ocean's version was originally leaked last year only to be leaked again as up updated re-mastered this version this March. Now, we finally have an official video for the song the to be the lead single off Ocean's next LP.

Directed by Tumblr natives the High 5 Collective, the vid sets Ocean's doe-eyed crooning against something of an inter-dimensional love story, that or a dreamcatcher-inspired fever dream. Either way, pioneer triage and white-eyed shaman were not what we we're expecting, but we couldn't be more pleasantly surprised. source 1 2

President Obama to Appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

What does President Barack Obama have in common with Elmo, Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino, Michele Bachmann and Bruce Springsteen? As of next week, they will all have appeared as guests on comic Jimmy Fallon's late-night show.

Obama will make his first appearance on the irreverent program in a segment taped Tuesday from the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which will be shown that night, NBC announced Friday. Dave Matthews will be the musical guest.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said on Twitter that Obama would promote a plan to keep student-loan costs in check.

Fallon is no stranger to political guests — over the past year, he's hosted outspoken Mitt Romney supporter Donald Trump, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and former New York city mayor and failed presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.

But it was Bachmann's November 21st appearance that generated the most publicity after Fallon's house band, the Roots, welcomed her on the set with a riff from Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass Bitch." The result was a political uproar that led Fallon to apologize to the Congresswoman on Twitter.


omg I hope Jimmy can get him to do something silly!

Feistodon Cometh! Hear Feist and Mastodon Cover Each Other

by Marc Hogan

Feistodon is here, and as you might have guessed, it's a beast. Feist and Mastodon's covers of each others' songs, available as a 7" single for Record Store Day this Saturday (and featuring some thoroughly badass cover art), have surfaced online, via Listen Before You Buy. Who'da thunk: The Canadian singer-songwriter makes aggressive The Hunter pummeler "Black Tongue" her breezy, bouncy own, albeit with more than her usual grit, while the Atlanta metalheads do similarly with Feist's off-kilterer-than-usual Metals (hey!) racket-maker "A Commotion," seizing on the song's insistent pulse and throttling it half out of its mind. "The grudge has still got your heart," the prehistoric fellas repeat, maybe a touch more sweetly than usual. Match made.

Taylor Swift in talks to play Joni Mitchell in new movie *insert angry GIF here*

Taylor Swift is circling the role of Joni Mitchell in Sony Pictures and Di Bonaventura Pictures' adaptation of Sheila Weller's book "Girls Like Us," which would mark the pop star's first turn in a bigscreen drama.

Pic examines the careers of singers Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King. Swift does not have an official offer, but has been linked to the Mitchell role for several months as other actresses have auditioned to play Simon and King, including Alison Pill ("Midnight in Paris") for the latter singer.

"House" exec producer Katie Jacobs, who optioned the book several years ago, is directing from a script by John Sayles. Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") is set to produce the Sony pic, which has not yet been greenlit, though it is tentatively skedded to start production later this year when the three leads' schedules allow for filming.

Swift, who's currently featured on "The Hunger Games" soundtrack, made her feature acting debut in ensemble rom-com "Valentine's Day," and recently voiced a role in Universal's "The Lorax." Before that, she appeared as herself in the 2009 Miley Cyrus vehicle "Hannah Montana: The Movie."

Swift is repped by WME.


Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift's Duet Sounds "Beautiful"

"It's beautiful," she told E! News about the collaboration for Bieber's June release, Believe. "I don't know if it's going to make it on the record, but it is beautiful."

Whether or not it makes the cut, Swift is only one of many artists — including Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine and Bieber's pals Kanye West and Drake — who have hit the studio with the Biebs. As for working together, neither Selena nor Justin have mentioned a duet for his album.

stefano x "i'm on a roll"

“American Idol” season 10 alumnus Stefano Langone has returned to the spotlight with a flourish in his first single “I’m On A Roll” featuring New Boyz and Rock Mafia. We don’t doubt Stefano’s “midas touch” as he sings of good times with friends and living “tonight like it’s the best night of my life!”

If you recall Stefano’s very appearance on “American Idol” last year was a miracle after audiences learned of his serious injuries caused by a reckless drunk driver. He has not only overcome his hardships but is overjoyed as he sings “I’m going to light it up like the fourth of July / If I can keep it up I ain’t sleeping tonight / ‘cuz up ’til now it’s been one hell of a ride.”

Stefano has even gone so far as offered major advice to the recently eliminated Colton Dixon saying: “Make sure you have your eye on the prize,” he said. “Keep your chin up and keep working as hard as you can.” The 23-year-old is set to return to the Idol stage and perform “I’m On A Roll.”

Don’t forget to tune in to Stefano live on American Idol April 26th at 8/9c and catch “I’m On A Roll” on iTunes April 24th. What do you think of Stefano’s new sound? Share with us in the comments below.

Canadian News Channel airs 3 minutes of hardcore gay porn after newscast.

CHCH Television viewers got more than an eyeful this morning.

At the end of the Morning Live news broadcast, hard core gay sex scenes took over screens for about 3 minutes before the channel went dark.

CHCH which is owned by Channel Zero also operates several adult movie services.

Viewers took to twitter right away tweeting out things like "Anyone watching CHCH see what I just seen? #fail" & "Someone hacked CHCH news to play gay porn... And every TV in the gym and starbucks was set to it..."

The Hamilton-based channel also took to twitter to issue the following apology:

"CHCH apologizes to some of our cable viewers for inappropriate content that aired around 9:30 this morning. We would like to assure all of our viewers that the content did not originate at this station, but was the result a switching error at one of the cable companies that picks up our signal. While the error was beyond the control of CHCH, we do extend our sincere apologies to our viewers."''


Right in the middle of Morning Live, the signal abruptly cut to HardTV’s broadcast of the Lucas Entertainment adult video After Hours. The hardcore movie, in which “ten international sluts cruise each other on the streets of Berlin,” played for several minutes until the station regained control of its broadcast.

According to Lucas Entertainment’s website, After Hours shows how “when the day is done the men in suits waste no time stripping down and fucking hard!

Emeli Sandé - My Kind of Love (Video)

Emeli on the theme for the music video

"During my time studying medicine, I found it hard to write, but one of the things that inspired me were the patients and the interaction that they had with their loved ones during their time of illness. When people arrived at the hospital, money and status became irrelevant and only health mattered, which sparked an honesty between people which was amazing. This interaction, declaration of support and love, was the inspiration for "My Kind Of Love" and something I wanted to try and portray in this video. Thank you. Emeli x"

Urban Outfitters hits a new low

The Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia publicly objected Thursday to a T-shirt being sold by Urban Outfitters Inc. that bears a symbol that critics said resembles a Star of David patch that Jews in Nazi Europe were forced to wear during the Holocaust, sometimes on concentration camp uniforms.

“We find this use of symbolism to be extremely distasteful and offensive, and we are outraged that your company would make this product available to your customers,” Barry Morrison, regional director of the ADL, wrote in a letter e-mailed to Richard A. Hayne, chairman and chief executive of the retail corporation headquartered at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. ADL shared the letter with the media.

A phone call to Urban Outfitters spokesman Ed Looram was not immediately returned.

The shirt was brought to the ADL’s attention earlier in the day by an affiliate in Chicago, Morrison said. The $100 Kellog Tee — a yellow cotton shirt from the Denmark-based Wood Wood label — features a six-pointed blue patch embroidered to a chest pocket. It was available on the company’s website as of Thursday afternoon.

Deleted scenes from last night's Parks and Recreation

Press play to see Chris (Rob Lowe) confess to Ron (Nick Offerman) that he’s been breaking some breathing rules, April (Aubrey Plaza) put the hard sell on a potential dog adopter, Andy (Chris Pratt) fumble a fib, and Jerry (Jim O’Heir) pick up some dog poop. And if that weren’t enough, you will also learn what Ben (Adam Scott) calls Leslie when she needs a little boost. It’s good and nerdy.

Game of Thrones' Richard Madden stays true to character, Alfie Allen wants to be Arya (bow)

Editor’s Note: Journalist Maria Murriel had the opportunity to attend a press junket with a few of the cast members of HBO’s Game of Thrones recently. Today she shares with us part of her interviews with Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and Alfie Allen, including why Allen would have loved to play the role of Arya Stark and how Madden sometimes forgets she’s not his real sister. 

I couldn’t believe the text my editor sent me:

Ack, last-minute question! Are you available to attend a roundtable with the Game of Thrones folks tomorrow?”

What?! Hell yes, I’m available!

And so I covered the event for the Miami New Times, and found that Allen would have loved to play Arya Stark.

“It’s so boring, though,” he whined, “because everyone really likes her. I love Arya, but [she’s] everyone’s choice. I love Arya’s character.”

He also said he would have liked to play Melisandre of Asshai or Tyrion Lannister. But he’s happy to play such a “complex character” as Theon Greyjoy, and he’s having fun with it.

One reporter asked him how uncomfortable it was to film scenes like "The Night Lands'" boat scene, to which he replied as though the question were ridiculous and inconceivable. He did not, in fact, find such scenes uncomfortable.

“I love it!” he laughed, “Definitely not [uncomfortable], man, it’s great! If you’re going to do these things, you’ve got to enjoy ‘em.”

To be fair, he did say he thought his cohort in the scene in question was “brilliant.”

Dr. Phil: Vets with PTSD are "damaged goods", "monsters"

PTSD: civilians just love to paint veterans as riddled with this disease, causing them to become violent, unhinged lunatics who will explode at the slightest provocation. Look at just about any news story where a violent crime is committed by a veteran, and PTSD is almost immediately floated as the reason. In the media narrative, violence and PTSD go hand-in-hand. At the same time, troops are criticized for not coming forward and admitting they have a problem, and seeking help for it. (Gee, could it possibly be because we paint veterans with PTSD as homicidal lunatics?)

Dr. Phil, arguably one of the most popular talk show hosts on the planet, decided to feature this issue on his show this week. And while he could have taken a reasonable approach, he went straight for the gut instead. Titling the show “From Heroes To Monsters”, he painted a picture of vets with PTSD as ticking time bombs of violence, describing them as damaged goods who “destroy families” and “dismantle marriages”.

Tom Hiddleston: Superheroes movies like Avengers Assemble should not be scorned

From Superman to Batman, superhero films have much to teach us about faith and humanity – as well as being terrrific visual spectacle, writes Avengers Assemble star Tom Hiddleston

Earlier this year, beneath the wind-whipped tarpaulin of a catering tent in Gloucester, I was working on a film with the actor Malcolm Sinclair. Over scrambled eggs at an ungodly hour, he told me something I had not previously known: when Christopher Reeve was young, barely out of Juilliard, he was roundly mocked by his peers on Broadway for accepting the role of Superman. It was considered an ignoble thing for a classical actor to do.

I grew up watching Superman. As a child, when I first learned to dive into a swimming pool, I wasn't diving, I was flying, like Superman. I used to dream of rescuing a girl I had a crush on (my Lois Lane) from a playground bully (General Zod). Reeve, to my mind, was the first real superhero.

'Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23' Targeted By PTC

Not only should you not "Trust the B---- in Apartment 23," but you shouldn't watch "the B---- in Apartment 23" either, according to the Parents Television Council.

The TV watchdog group hasn't been shy about slamming new shows, particularly ones with a lot of sexual content, and  "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23," ABC's new comedy is no exception.

In a letter on their website, the PTC asked readers to reach out to sponsors, particularly AT&T and Volkswagen, and urge them to remove their ads. "ABC didn't just reach for the sewer, they dove in head-first and they took our airwaves with them," the group said in a statement.

Calling it a "new all-time low for broadcast television," the PTC blasted "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" (Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC) and said it's "a sexist mixed-bag of hedonism, drug-use, alcohol abuse."

And of course the group has an issue with the title. Like "GCB" before it, the PTC said "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23's" name "represents a continuing and disturbing trend of using offensive, profane language in the very title of the program, where it is nearly impossible for families to avoid."

Earlier this season, the council targeted "The Playboy Club." After the NBC drama was canceled, the PTC issued this statement, thanking its supporters: "Bringing 'The Playboy Club' to broadcast television was a poor programming decision from the start. We're pleased that NBC will no longer be airing a program so inherently linked to a pornographic brand that denigrates and sexualizes women."

Previously, the parents group took issue with MTV's short-lived "Skins" and Fox's first-time episode of "Glee." 

Screw the PTC, imo. I love this show so much. James van der Beek gives me life on this show, negl. Everyone watch!!

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford are getting married this weekend

Nine months into their engagement, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford are reportedly having their wedding in the English countryside this weekend.

According to Radar Online, Mulligan, 26, and Mumford, 24, will tie the knot in front of close family and friends.

"She is absolutely walking on air and can hardly contain her excitement . . . they are madly in love and know they are perfect for each other," a source told Radar Online.

"It's a dream come true for Carey," the source added.

Rumor or not, the timing of the wedding is not a terrible shock, considering how fast the couple fell for each other. Mulligan began dating the Mumford & Sons front man nearly one year ago, following a long relationship with her "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" co-star Shia LaBeouf.

Five months later, Mumford popped the question.

The fairly private pair have actually known each other since childhood. According to Us Weekly, Mulligan and Mumford were pen pals in London but lost touch "long ago." Their relationship picked up in early 2011, when Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal went to a private Mumford & Sons show in Nashville.

"At the end of the night there were just there musicians, Jake, Carey, and the Mumford boys . . . we had some pizza and they just played music. Jake picked up a guitar and Carey joined in on 'Amazing Grace.' Marcus and Carey seemed really friendly," a source told Us Weekly at the time.

Mulligan, who shot to mainstream Hollywood fame in 2009's "An Education," has since been on a slew of major features, co-starring with the likes of Ryan Gosling ("Drive") and Michael Fassbender ("Shame"). The English actress recently wrapped production on the film adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher. Mulligan is set to play Daisy Buchanan.

Meanwhile, Mumford and his band are gearing up to record the follow-up to their 2009 debut album "Sigh No More," which has reached quadruple platinum in the UK, double platinum in the US and Canada, and Platinum in Europe and New Zealand.

Mumford was previously linked to British songstress Laura Marling.

The Avengers with PG-13

A rating fairly similar to Marvel Studios' last two big-screen outings, their anticipated Joss Whedon-directed "superhero team-up of a lifetime," The Avengers, has finally received it's own classification.

PG-13 for Intense Sequences of Sci-Fi Violence and Action Throughout, and a Mild Drug Reference.

The main difference between Captain America: The First Avenger and Thr Avengers' classification is the "Mild Drug Reference" which, according to early reviews, regards to (SPOILER/) how Dr. Bruce Banner has been able to refrain himself from "Hulking out" for nearly two years. Also, the apparent reason for Marvel's The Avengers received this classification so late is possibly due to the last-minute inclusion of a heavily rumored "extra scene" AFTER the credits; a mid-credits scene was shown in early screenings. What do you think?


Matthew Perry's pilot "Go On" get 13 episode order on NBC

NBC has given its first pilot order for the 2012-13 season, bringing former Friends star Matthew Perry back to the network that helped make him a star.

The struggling network has ordered to series Go On, a single-camera project from Friends and Joey writer Scott Silveri and Universal Television. Todd Holland will executive produce and direct the pilot.

Go On centers on an irreverent yet charming sportscaster (Perry) who tries to move on from loss and finds solace from the members of his mandatory group-therapy sessions.

Transformers' Julie White will play Anne, a woman stuck in the anger stage of grief; Suzy Nakamura co-stars.

Yay! Hopefully, this is better than Mr. Sunshine.

DC. vs. Marvel- The Joker vs. Loki

(From House of Geekery) Warning: Possible Comic Book Spoilers

Background:  Two of DC and Marvel’s flagship villains go head to head in a match up that will critique their abilities, social relevance and overall storyline.  The Joker is one of the most renowned and widely publicized villains in the comic world.  The arch nemesis of Batman, this clown prince is a vicious psychopath who kills for amusement and tortures the innocent, all in a day’s work. His first official appearance was in 1941 but it’s his 1951 Detective Comics introduction that gave birth to The Joker we all know.  This initial transformation occurs as the “Red Hood” when he is chased by Batman and falls into a vat of chemicals, turning his skin white, his hair green and putting a permanent grin on his face.  The Joker is one of the few characters to have never had his true name or origins revealed, aside from a segment in The Killing Joke where it’s been said that he’s lied so much about his past that he doesn’t remember the actual story.  He’s done serious damage in Gotham city with the infamous attack on Barbara Gordon that led to her paralysis, the brutal murder of Jason Todd (the second Robin) as well as the murder of Jim Gordon’s wife.  Wherever there is pure mayhem and a sadistic act of violence in Gotham City there is The Joker.Collapse )Source

Five Articles (ONTD included) Implying Blake Shelton Caused Adam Levine's Break-Up

Have you guys heard the news? Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and Voice supercoach, is currently in the midst of a long road trip to Splitsville with supermodel girlfriend Anne V(yalitsyna), the two officially announcing their breakup this afternoon. “Adam and I have decided to separate in an amicable and supportive manner,” Ms. V diplomatically offered via statement to People Magazine. “We still love and respect each other as friends. I wish him all the best.” Levine has not yet offered comment, and the reasons behind (and perpetrator of) the breakup remain unknown.
Of course, that has not kept The Internet from speculating, and the consensus opinion has examined the evidence named a likely culprit in the power couple’s dissolution: Voice host and noted homewrecker Blake Shelton. The country star’s bromance—and yes, it’s so like that that we have to actually use That Word to describe it—with NBC co-star Adam Levine has been well-documented, to say the least, so now that Levine’s personal life has gone awry, all eyes are pointed in his direction. To wit, here’s five articles on the situation that implicitly or explicitly finger Blake for the breakup:

Ellen Page on "To Rome With Love"

ellen page Pictures, Images and Photos

Ellen Page has come a long way from the girl whose wit stole our hearts in "Juno." From the psychological thriller "Peacock" — about a man who can't seem to control his alter ego, Emma — to the sci-fi blockbuster hit "Inception," she's taken on an array of roles that prove her acting talent. In the upcoming Woody Allen film "To Rome With Love," we'll get to see Page assume another character that strays widely from her usual lovable disposition as she seduces her friend's boyfriend.

The movie follows four separate stories, all taking place in Rome, Italy. When Monica (Page) jets off to the Eternal City after breaking up with her boyfriend, she begins a romance with her best friend Monica's (Greta Gerwig) guy, Jack (Jesse Eisenberg). When MTV News spoke with the actress recently, she told us what it was like to work with the ensemble cast, what she found challenging about the role and what's next in her career.

Is Nicki Minaj Considering Retirement?

Ever since Nicki Minaj deaded her twitter account, cutting off nearly 11 million followers, many of the extremely active members of her Barbz fan community have been frantically trying to figure out if this was just a temporary hiatus? Like a social media time out for some fan sites that angered her?
Meanwhile, Nicki has been in London doing press all week, along with her right hand man Safaree, and new team addition Manny Hailey (Keyshia Cole’s former manager). She told UK TV host Graham Norton that a “voice inside her head” told her to delete her twitter page.
But when she sat down with my UK radio boss, Tim Westwood…Nicki was much more blunt. Not only does she seem adamant about not re-activating her massive twitter account, but she also talks about “leaving the game.” All of this delivered in a mix of British and Lil Wayne impersonation voices. (rme)

Tim Westwood: Now Roman Reloaded…
Nicki Minaj: What’s really good?
TM: What’s really really good? Straight bangin’, baby.
Nicki: Thank you Tim.
TM: It’s what we needed.
Nicki: I think so.

Bollywood actress Meenakshi Thapar 'beheaded by jealous rivals'

A young Bollywood star, Meenakshi Thapar, has allegedly been kidnapped and beheaded by two fellow actors.

The 26-year-old actress met Amit Jaiswal and his lover Preeti Surin on the set of her latest film, Heroine, the UK's Daily Telegraph reports.

It was there that Jaiswal and Surin heard of her family's wealth, and allegedly hatched a plot to kidnap her.

The duo are said to have invited Thapar to a small town on the Nepalese border, where they took her hostage and demanded 1.5 million Rupees ($A27,800) from her parents, and threatened to force her into pornography if they were not paid.

Although Thapar's parents are thought to have transferred some money to their daughter's captors, the young star was killed soon after.

A detective working on the case told The Telegraph some of the harrowing details:

"She was strangulated in a hotel and her body was hacked into pieces and thrown in a water tank. They threw her head from a moving bus while travelling back to Mumbai."

The case is ongoing.

this is horrible, wow :(

Degrassi: Hollaback Girl Part 1

adam's plot ended well. he was sweet to tristan and i thought he handled it better than i initially thought. also glad they made the connection between owen throwing adam through the door last year/season and tristan being his younger brother. marisol and mo were cute at the end. jahmil was great tonight, tbh. but ugh, they should have had dave run jacinta over himself. they made such a big issue out of texting+driving and then nothing came from it.

so excited for this next episode. DRIANCA <3 katie being a party girl now? oh...okay.

Amanda De Cadenet Gets The Conversation Started

What were you doing when you were 14? If you’re like most women, you were probably somewhere between milestones that included your first crush and first training bra.  

Not Amanda De Cadenet. 
At 14, she was already a celebrity in her native England, hosting a wildly-popular TV show that gave her unprecedented access to the biggest stars of the day. Just five years later she married one, walking down the aisle with John Taylor from Duran Duran and becoming a mom all before most people in this country can legally order a gin and tonic. 

Now, almost two decades later, De Cadenet is back on TV with next week’s premiere of The Conversation  and – just like her Bri-american accent – she is at the center of two worlds. Because for all the “girl power” Amanda – the one who drives a motorbike and has not only graced covers but has a gift behind the lens as well – there’s clearly a woman who has learned a thing or two about life. Below she shares how being young and famous shaped her self-esteem, the inspiration behind her new show, and why extraordinary pain is often the catalyst to extraordinary growth.

I Woke Up Gay, BBC Three, review

In the small town of Ystrad Mynach, South Wales, seven years ago, a 19-stone rugby-playing ladies man and bank clerk Chris Birch snapped his neck while larking around doing somersaults and backflips with his friends. As the tabloids excitedly revealed a while ago, he suffered a massive stroke and woke up as a completely different person – a person who happened to be gay.

BBC Three love this sort of thing, hence their following Chris – who’s now changed his name to Kris – around to make I Woke Up Gay, a documentary about his bizarre experience.

Guy Pearce Joins Iron Man 3 As Geneticist Aldrich Killian

Recently, we heard that Ben Kingsley was in talks to play the villain in Marvel Studios' third Iron Man film, which begins production next month in North Carolina. Now, Variety reports that Guy Pearce - who recently starred in Lockout and will soon be seen in Ridley Scott's Prometheus - is in final talks to join the cast of Iron Man 3. Pearce will play the geneticist Aldrich Killian. Shane Black is directing the film, which also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle. Walt Disney Pictures is distributing with Marvel Studios.

The movie will be loosely based on Warren Ellis' "Extremis" storyline (which also influenced the first movie). In the books, Killian co-created the Extremis technology that Iron Man adopts after Killian sells it to terrorists.

Iron Man 3 is set to hit theaters May 3rd, 2013.

One Direction have conquered charts around the world but pop queen Madonna has proved to be blissfully unaware of their existence.

The US singer, who has always shown herself to be on the pulse with changing tastes, was not sure who the British quintet were when asked in a TV interview.

One Direction have caused a stir in the US where they have been mobbed by fans and last month they became the first British group to debut at number one in the US.

But in an interview for ITV1's Daybreak to be screened tomorrow, she was unsure who One Direction were when asked.
"That's a pop group, right? Sorry," said the 53-year-old star.

Informed they are a British chart band, she said: "I haven't seen them yet, no, sorry. Slap my hand."
