As Selina Kyle and her lethal alter-ego Catwoman, Hathaway has already commanded quite a bit of attention as she slips into the role famously inhabited by actresses such as Michelle Pfieffer, Halle Berry and Julie Newmar EARTHA KITT????

The first images of her catsuit drummed up a lot of conversation a while back, and now a new trailer reveals some exciting details, such as ...

Tyra vs Naomi Round Two


Move over, Tyra...there's a new model-searching star in town! Oxygen has just announced that it will be launching a new reality competition series for aspiring models called "The Face' starring fashion icon Naomi Campbell.

Wowza! This sets up a serious clash of the supermodels--Tyra versus Naomi in the battle of the broadcast beauties. And while Tyra's thinks ANTM "needs a new boost," recasting the show might be just the opportunity Oxygen needs to slide in and turn her boost into the boot.

According to the show's press release, Naomi will be joined by two other yet-to-be-named supermodels to mentor three teams of models who will be guided through weekly challenges until one winner is chosen to become ‘The Face’ of a major national brand. Sounds familiar.

Unnecessary Bitches Doing Unnecessary Shit: Basketball Wives Movie



In case you haven’t gotten enough of the hair pulling, table jumping, bottle throwing debacle that is Basketball Wives the reality show, the movie version may be coming to a theater near you. Last year, Shaunie O’Neal reached out to ‘Jumping The Broom’ producer Tracey Edmonds via twitter, after hitting the jackpot with the first few seasons of Basketball Wives and the two came together to develop a concept that they pitched to various studios. The untitled pitch was eventually picked up by Fox Searchlight films and is now in development with ‘Jumping The Broom’ writer Elizabeth Hunter on board to pen the script. According to Variety, the plot will revolve around a young woman who relocates to Miami with her boyfriend after he gets drafted to the NBA. For some reason Savannah Brinson or even Adrienne Bosh comes to mind but the film is suppose to be based on Shaunie and a few of her friends.

Gaga's Stage Is The Largest That's Ever Been Built To Tour



Lady Gaga's 2012-2013 Born This Way Ball World Tour officially kicked off last Friday in Seoul, South Korea and the Mother Monster is already making headlines for her over-the-top costumes.

"It's been my life's dream to be dressed in Italian designers," Gaga, 26, (real name: Stefanie Germanotta) said in a statement to Us Weekly. Her tour costumes will include collaborations with Versace, Armani and Moschino.

"Lady Gaga is the present and the future," Donatella Versace said. "She is the most revolutionary and inspirational artist. She is fearless and daring. I can't wait for everyone to be surprised by what we've cooked up together!"

And even Gaga's giant castle stage set is a masterpiece. James "Winky" Fairorth, CEO of Tate Towers said, "The stage set for the Born This Way Ball is the largest scenic structure that's ever been built to tour." It takes fifteen 53 foot long tractor trailers to move the castle and main stage!

Gaga's first show in South Korea got off to rough start when the government stepped in and banned minors from attending listing her music under "Harmful Content for Youth."

But the show did go on for nearly 60,000 fans. Gaga then headed to Hong Kong tweeting Sunday, "I'm so happy to be in Hong Kong! We have 4 shows here! Thanks for buying tickets my amazing little monsters, I can't wait to rock this city."

The tour will continue to Asia, Australia and Europe with more dates expected to be announced soon.

Mara Wilson appears in new Nostalgia Critic!

In the latest episode of That Guy with the Glasses' Nostalgia Critic, Doug Walker reviews the 1997 children's movie, A Simple Wish. Towards the end, Doug proclaims, "I'm sorry, I'm just not a fan of her movies. I mean, it's like everything Mara Wilson touched back then just turned to crap," when suddenly, Mara Wilson herself appears in a surprising, and frankly awesome, cameo.

In the video, she plays some footage of the Critic's embarrassing homemade childhood films, and concludes her appearance saying, "I'm sure now that the public have seen your brilliant choices as a child, they'll be just as accepting as you were of mine."

I know there's been a lot of drama and controversy between Mara and ONTD, but whatever. I think she's fierce in this video and I like that she's smart and ~real~. No h8, let's start building bridges. Also, I absolutely loved A Simple Wish as a kid. I thought the whole rabbit/rabbi mixup was hilarious. Even though I now realize that movie is a total piece of shit, I have suuuuuch intense nostalgia for it, omg.

Khloé Kardashian: 'Divorce Is Not an Option'


Khloé Kardashian has gotten used to sharing her life on television, but now the reality star and her husband Lamar Odom are stepping back from the spotlight.

"We just wanted to prioritize a little," Kardashian, 27, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview as the couple tables their show Khloé & Lamar until his basketball career is back on track. "We just wanted a little pause. Part of being married is knowing when your husband needs your support."

While Kardashian says she always made sure cameras weren't around during days when Lamar, 32, had a basketball game (he's currently sitting out the season after a difficult trade to Dallas), now that they'll only be appearing on E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and their own daily lives will no longer be on display, "there's less pressure on us."

That pressure had certainly been building.

But Kardashian says, the risk of damaging her relationship with Lamar wasn't worth it.

"I'm a modern girl, but you should put your husband first," she says. "I like to think divorce is not an option."

Bobby Brown on the Today Show, Claims He Never Did Narcotics Until He Met Whitney

Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston may no longer have been a couple when she died in February, but as he told TODAY's Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Wednesday morning -- his first interview since her death -- he still misses her fiercely.
"Our relationship was great," he said. "I had 14 beautiful, beautiful years with that woman."

And it's not just his revisionist history, he insisted: "I can honestly say that -- I love that woman with -- with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way."

Still, Whitney and Bobby's relationship was, almost from the start, filled with conflict of one kind or the other. Brown says he never used hard drugs before meeting Houston, and said that she had used drugs before they were involved. "I worried about it when ... we first got together until I tried it," he said. "And when I tried it, for some reason, I have an addictive personality."

New York Times interview with Benedict Cumberbatch


~keeping his face at a distance for your benefit~

HOW skilled a secret keeper is Benedict Cumberbatch if he readily confesses the easiest method for extracting secrets from him?

Asked somewhat frivolously for information about one of the many coming projects he cannot talk about, Mr. Cumberbatch, the 35-year-old British actor, offered an equally facetious response.

You could stick a knife in my thigh, and I wouldn’t tell you,” he said a few weeks ago, relaxing on the deck of the Venice, Calif., home where he was staying. But he added: “Pull the hair on my head the wrong way, and I would be on my knees begging for mercy. I have very sensitive follicles.

rdj looking unbelievably derpy with susan


Coldplay performed at the Hollywood Bowl last night, the first of 3 sold out shows at the venue. Robert Downey Jr and wife Susan were there to support their friend Chris Martin. As you know, RDJ and Gwyneth Paltrow are super-tight. The Martins host the Downeys all the time in New York. This is your least favourite thing about RDJ, isn’t it?

Two days now until The Avengers opens. Ready? The reviews continue to be largely positive. The box office is bracing for a massive take. So RDJ, he just walks around making blockbusters now, is that it?

Next - Iron Man 3. Gwyneth will be back as Pepper Potts because, as you’ll see when you see The Avengers, Pepper makes Tony better, she really does; Shane Black who worked with RDJ in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is directing; and Jessica Chastain is coming on as a new sexy mysterious adversary/ally/temptation. Very promising. They start shooting in a couple of weeks. Which means RDJ has a few more days of fun and silliness before he sets back into superhero shape. Time to pull the Wing Chun out of the basement.

'Game Of Thrones' Power Ranking

'Game Of Thrones' Season 2, Episode 5 Power Ranking: Who's Winning After 'The Ghost Of Harrenhall'?

Anyone can be killed." -- Arya Stark

Oh, "Game of Thrones." We love how you start an episode with death, end an episode with death, and for fun, kill a bunch of people in between.

As our happy crew of crown-chasers set off for new lands, scheming, scouting, fighting and more, one piece has been knocked off the board.

"The Ghost of Harrenhal" demonstrates the golden rule, Westeros-style: Blood repaid in blood, death repaid in death. It also reaffirms something we've known since Ned Stark's head was cleaved from his shoulders. Anyone can die. Probably horribly.

Uh-oh. Team Britney Throws Shade At The Wanted, Defends Xtina & All Other Female Popstars



What's up with the Wanted?

Just the other day the British boy band called Christina Aguilera a "bitch" for apparently not being nice to them during their recent appearance on The Voice and now they're going after Britney Spears.

During a radio interview yesterday, the group claimed that they were told not to look at the pop princess when they opened for her.

Well, Spears' camp is now fighting back…

"What's even more interesting than the false allegations they made is the fact that they have claimed to be picked on by two female pop stars in just a few days," Spears' rep says. "Look out Lady Gaga—there are still three days left this week."

The Wanted said the Spears incident happened while Siva Kaneswaran and their tour manager were looking at a laptop in a hallway. Security ordered them to turn away because Brit was about to come through, they said.

"We faced the wall for about 10 seconds until she got really far away," Kaneswaran said on Fresh 102.7/New York.

When the DJ said they were probably just "messing" with the group, Kaneswaran insisted, "It was serious."

Even so, that doesn't mean they're totally hating on Spears.

The group's curly-haired Jay McGuiness said, "When we actually met her person to person she was so down-to-earth."

Spears even tweeted a photo of them together backstage with the message, "Love them!"

Wonder if she still does.


E!News


the important thing to remember in all of this is: Godney keeps it classy and stays above it all. Her team is commenting now because they are pressed The Wanted broke their confidentiality agreement and told everyone that the security guards made them face the wall as Britney passed by. TW have no beef with Britney, and Britney probably doesn't remember TW.

New Zealand's version of Jersey Shore premieres tonight + Dating tips from Tame

A follow up to this post.




Rotorua-born Ngahere "Nuz" Ngatai hopes making it on TV3's new series The GC will help his music career.

Nuz, 27, features in TV3's new reality show, starting tonight, which follows the lives of 11 young Maori as they live, work and party on the Gold Coast.

It's been likened to hit reality television shows Jersey Shore and Geordie Shore.

Nuz said unlike Jersey Shore the lads on The GC hold to a code of "gym, tan and eat" rather than Jersey Shore's fashioned code of "gym, tan and laundry".

"It's a good friendly bunch but there are some personality conflicts," Nuz said.

"I'm the easy going sort but Jade-Louis, my partner in crime, likes to stir it up a bit. It captures more of our real life.

"The way we talk to each other is real, it's very unscripted so I'd say it is more like the British show The Only Way Is Essex than Jersey or Geordie Shore."

Mozzies' (Maori Aussies) favourite phrases include "mumsies" (meaning girlfriends), "neff" (friend), "creep on" (scoring) and "what doing?" (what's up?).

Nuz joined the show mainly to gain exposure for his career as a singer.

"It's hard enough as it is to get exposure, if you can make it on to any screen it helps," he said.

He had been working in the Gold Coast for about five years, commuting daily from Brisbane, about an hour's drive.

"I work a lot of weddings, parties and functions. Mainly around Broadbeach,'' Nuz said.

He and his best mate Jade-Louise were on X Factor Australia last year and he heard about the show through her.

"My role on the show was to be Jade's best friend so the TV3 guys would just follow us around every now and again,'' he recalled.

Nuz and his family moved from Rotorua to Brisbane when he was two years old.

The 30-minute show begins tonight at 8pm on TV3.

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are having a boy!

Jay's teammate spills the beans


An offseason of good news for Jay Cutler keeps getting better: The Chicago Bears quarterback and fiancee Kristin Cavallari are expecting a baby boy.

That was the word yesterday from Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett, who broke the news on "The Boers & Bernstein Show" on WSCR-AM 670.

Bennett was asked about all the new offensive weapons the Bears have added to Cutler's arsenal this offseason, such as wide receiver and good friend Brandon Marshall, who was seen hanging out with the Bears quarterback last week at the Board Room.

"New toys, a baby on the way -- he's having a boy -- I'm excited for Jay," Bennett said. "It's a great time."

Cutler and Cavallari have yet to confirm the news about the sex of the baby or when they plan to wed.

ONTD's shameful secret lover knows about and appreciates Sherlock fanfic and fanart

Benedict Cumberbatch Flattered By Racy ‘Sherlock’ Fanfic 'I was amazed at the level of artistry; people have spent hours doing it,’ British actor tells MTV News

British actor Benedict Cumberbatch is so hot right now. He is almost literally in everything, including last year’s awards-season favorites “War Horse” and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” the hit BBC/PBS revival of “Sherlock” and two highly anticipated future blockbusters “Star Trek 2” and “The Hobbit.”

Cumberbatch fans should be excited to see him reprise his role as the quirky and slightly sociopathic Sherlock Holmes when the second season premieres this Sunday (May 6) on PBS’s Masterpiece. MTV News recently caught up with the very busy and talented actor, who attributes the show’s success to its “extraordinary” and “very intelligent, very loyal” fans and promised that they won’t be disappointed with the action that unfolds in the second season.

Speaking of those intelligent fans, we asked Cumberbatch if he was aware of the extensive collection of creative and explicit fan fiction that has surfaced online since the premiere of the show’s first season.

“I am startlingly aware of it,” Cumberbatch said with a smile. “I don’t go seeking it, but Martin Freeman, who was an absolute luddite on the first series, suddenly came back from New Zealand having done a little radio short drama called “The Hobbit,” he came back and he had this beautiful Mac [computer] with him and said ‘Hey, look at this Tumblr.’ And I said, ‘What? Tumblr? What?’ He knows more about it than I do and he was showing me some of them. Some of it is really racy, un-viewable even on MTV. It’s cool.”

The charming Brit went on to say that he is flattered by a few of the depictions he’s come across and that he’s amazed how much time some fans have put into their work.

“I suppose my bodily proportions are quite flattering. I’m ripped, doing something I wouldn’t normally do with my body, or having done to it, involving Watson,” he said cheekily. “So that’s as far as I’ll hit about that one, but it’s all there on the Web if you want to find it. I was amazed at the level of artistry; people have spent hours doing it. And there’s some really weird cross breeding stuff that goes on. The news got out that I was playing Smaug in ‘Hobbit’ and suddenly there were lots of dragons with purple scarves flying around so it’s crazy, it’s crazy.”

CBS & NBC lead Tuesday while the CW remains dead


Fast National ratings for Tuesday, May 1, 2012

"Glee" gave back some of its ratings gains from last week, "The Voice" slipped a little in adults 18-49 and "NCIS" was down from its last original episode on a pretty bleak Tuesday night in the Nielsens. "The L.A. Complex" went even lower than its historically low debut on The CW, and "New Girl" drew its smallest audience ever.

Among the few bright spots, the finale of "The Biggest Loser" was up in viewers over last week. But that's pretty much it.

CBS averaged 14.3 million viewers and a 9.1 rating/14 share in households to lead the night. ABC (8.9 million, 6.0/10) came in second, followed by NBC (6.7 million, 4.4/7). FOX came in fourth with 4.8 million viewers and a 3.0/5, while The CW managed only about 900,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.

CBS also topped the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.6 rating, beating out NBC's 2.3. FOX took third with a 2.1. ABC scored a 1.9 in the demo and The CW a 0.5.

Sharlto Copley Cast in ‘Open Grave,’ Confirmed For Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’



Sharlto Copley is heading to Hungary to begin shooting Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s Open Grave, and he has closed his deal to play the villain in Spike Lee’s Oldboy, a remake of the cult 2003 Korean revenge thriller from Park Chan-wook. The actor, who made his mark with his starring role in the Oscar-nominated District 9 followed by The A-Team, will play the lead character in Lopez-Gallego’s follow-up to Apollo 18. Copley’s character wakes up in the pit full of rotting bodies with no idea how he got there, begins to have flashbacks of himself murdering people and stars to believe he’s the killer. Charles Roven’s Atlas Independent is producing. Copley has also been confirmed to play the villain Adrian Pryce in Oldboy. Pryce is a mysterious billionaire trying to destroy the life of Joe Douchett (Josh Brolin). The new Oldboy begins shooting in late September from a script adapted by Mark Protosevich, who will co-produce. Roy Lee and Doug Davison produce via Vertigo Entertainment with Lee’s 40 Acres & A Mule. Mandate president Nathan Kahane executive produces.

Copley, repped by WME, just wrapped filming District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium opposite Matt Damon and Jodie Foster for MRC; it will be released in March 2013.

SAUCE 
Now I have a reason to watch the new Oldboy film, not all remakes of foreign films are bad (are they?) but Open Grave does sound more interesting atm.

ScarJo and Jeremy Renner Likely for Broadway "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" Revival



Tony Award winner Scarlett Johansson is close to finalizing a deal to return to Broadway in a revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, according to Variety.

In April, "Avengers" star and Academy Award-nominated "Hurt Locker" actor Jeremy Renner revealed that he was considering starring as Brick in a Broadway run of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof along with Johansson as Maggie.

"I'm close to making a deal on it and I cannot wait absolutely to get to it. I'm exhilarated, I'm terrified, but I think in a good way," Johansson told Variety.

No official announcement of the production has been made.

Johansson was last seen on Broadway in a revival of Arthur Miller's 
A View From the Bridge.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was previously revived in 2008 with an all-African American cast led by Terrence Howard and Anika Noni Rose. A 2003 revival starred Jason Patric and Ashley Judd.

Lifetime's new logo: Umm....no


Namaste, readers. Ready to see Lifetime’s new logo and tagline?

Then grab your yoga mats and take a seat. The cable network has unveiled a new yin-and-yang-ish icon and a rather Zen new catchphrase.

The marketing line is “lifetime. your life. your time” — in non-threatening lower-case letters. The tagline is meant to “evoke an aspirational tone and bolder spirit” that reflects the “dramatic cultural changes occurring among women.” For years the network’s signature tagline was the rather exclusionary-sounding “Television for Women,” then they tried out “My story is on Lifetime,” and then got all digital-sounding with “Connect. Play. Share.”

What do you think of the network’s new design and marketing hook?

Wiz Khalifa -- who famously raps about rolling joints "bigger than King Kong’s fingers" -- was busted for weed AGAIN last night ... the 2nd time in 10 days.

The Winston-Salem Police Department in North Carolina tells us ... the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana before his concert in Winston-Salem last night.

We're told officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus.

Wiz was cited and released -- and is required to appear in court at a later date.

As we previously reported, Wiz was caught with weed in Nashville on April 21 ... after cops received complaints about marijuana smoke at a local Holiday Inn.

Update
10:19 AM PDT -- The WSPD tells us ... Wiz wasn't the only one busted for weed ... "other members of his band and staff" were cited as well.

Cops say Wiz and his people were blazing up on the tour buses BEFORE the concert. A court date has been set for July 27th.

I actually went to this concert last night in Winston-Salem, but didn't find out about his arrest until ironically I went to my Criminology class this afternoon. It doesn't surprise me considering how strict the WSPD is, but he put on a great show.. my pictures from the concert after the cut, just for shits and giggles.

Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm to work together in TV drama


DANIEL Radcliffe has signed up to play a doctor in a TV drama.


Fans of Casualty and Holby City will be disappointed, though, because he’s appearing in a new four-part drama to be shown on Sky Arts.


Daniel will star alongside Mad Men heart-throb Jon Hamm in the show, about Russian doctors after the First World War.


The two actors will play the same character – with Daniel as the doctor in his younger life and Jon portraying the medic’s later years.


American Jon – Mad Men ad exec Don Draper – will narrate the story but will still interact with his younger self, Daniel, during some of the scenes.


A source said: “This is a great role for Daniel and he’s pretty excited about the prospect of working with Jon.


“He’s a big Mad Men fan and feels he can learn a lot from Don. But Jon knows all about Daniel’s qualities, too, so he’ll also be doing some learning.”


The series will incorporate some dark humour as the doctor attempts to overcome self-doubts about his competence.


But Daniel is used to working on dark scripts after his role in scary movie The Woman In Black.

Casting for GoT S3 begins


We have heard that the casting for season three began today. Auditions were held this morning in London. We don’t, however, know which role or roles they were auditioning for. As usual, the whole thing is very top secret. If anyone has any info they’d be willing to share, please drop us a line!

One casting rumor we just heard comes from @JonasRJakobsen, who tweeted to us, “I was told by an agent that Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju is auditioning for an unknown role.” It’s gotta be Tormund Giantsbane, right? I mean, look at him!

UPDATE: Another rumor: according to commenter Draig, they are casting Shireen Baratheon. They are looking for an 11-year old girl. Hundreds of young actresses have already been seen. Auditions happened in London about two weeks ago, recalls to come.

UPDATE 2: Another role that is rumored to be currently casting is Daario Naharis. And, according to someone who has seen the casting breakdown, the producers are looking for “any ethnicity, except Caucasian”.

normal_014

Lady Gaga recently hit the road -- and told beau Taylor Kinney to do the same!

The pop singer, 26, and the Vampire Diaries star, 30, are now "on a break," a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. "She will be touring nonstop until next year and has found she can't have relationship at the same time."

The insider adds that the performer will have her hands full recording her next album while on the 110-show tour. "There's just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming."

Still, the couple of 10 months weren't exactly destined for the altar, says the friend. "Taylor was all about himself, a typical actor, and didn't completely get Gaga," says the friend.

And maybe she liked him for the wrong reasons. Says the pal, "She loved that she got this guy who everyone thought was hot! But it was never going to last."

The actor "was never that attentive to her," the source adds.

Emma Watson Will Witness 'The End of the World'

Emma Watson survived the wrath of Voldemort. But will she survive the end of days?

The Hogwarts graduate will work her formidable magic as the latest guest of Seth Rogen's all-star apocalypse party, "The End of the World," according to Heat Vision.


Watson has joined the increasingly impressive ensemble cast of the dark comedy, which also just recruited Jason Segel and David Krumholtz for the tale of, well, the end of the world, as seen through the eyes of several young actor-types playing meta-versions of themselves.

Emma Watson will be playing "Emma Watson" in the film, which also features Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Aziz Ansari and Jonah Hill as "themselves." "Emma Watson" will almost certainly have to tolerate some "Harry Potter" jokes in the film, perhaps along the lines of "Use your magic to save us from the Four Horsemen, Hermione!"

"The End of the World," which was previously known as "The Apocalypse" (might as well save that title for a future non-comedy), is an expansion of the short film, "Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse," which featured Rogen and Baruchel holed up in an apartment as everyone and everything dies. Seth Rogen and his longtime writing partner, Evan Goldberg, are directing the feature version, which will take place at a house party being thrown by Franco.

Emma Watson's post-"Harry Potter" career is really picking up steam. She's currently filming Sofia Coppola's latest drama, "The Bling Ring," and from there will segue into "Your Voice in My Head," which reunites her with her "Harry Potter" director, David Yates.

Meanwhile, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" recently screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and will hit theaters on Sept. 21.


"The End of the World" will commence with production later this year with a look toward a release date of June 14, 2013, which will put the apocalypse head-to-head with Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, "Man of Steel."

Alanis Morissette Brings 'Havoc,' Her 7th Album, in August


Alanis Morissette's next album will be her first release outside of Warner Music Group as Collective Sounds issues "Havoc and Bright Lights" on Aug. 28.

It's her seventh studio album and first release in four years. Guy Sigsworth, who has worked with Morissette, Madonna and Britney Spears, and Joe Chiccarelli, who engineered recordings for Frank Zappa, the Shins and Grace Potter, produced. The first single, "Guardian," will be available on iTunes on May 15, four days after it is shipped to radio.

Morissette is managed by the Collective, which started a label last year with former Warner Bros. executive Tom "Grover" Biery at the helm. Sony's RED distributes Collective Sounds.

"This record, as always, is a snapshot of what I currently obsess about, care about, and what strikes me at 4 in the morning in my most introspective moments," Morissette said in a statement. "It is my emotional, psychological, social and philosophical commentary through song."

Her last album, 2008's "Flavors of Entanglement," hit No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200. Morissette is, of course, best known for "Jagged Little Pill," the 1995 album that has sold 14.7 million copies in the United States, according to Soundscan. It is the third biggest-selling album since Soundscan started tracking sales in 1991.

Track listing for "Havoc and Bright Lights":
"Guardian"
"Woman Down"
"'Til You
"Celebrity"
"Empathy"
"Lens"
"Spiral"
"Numb"
"Havoc"
"Win and Win"
"Receive"

Cameron Diaz: "I Burst Into Tears" seeing my face in the mirror After Super Short Haircut


Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Hair today, gone tomorrow -- that's the lesson Cameron Diaz learned when a pal lopped off several inches from her hair in December 2011.

Just before Christmas, the What to Expect When You're Expecting star visited a female friend's house for a quick trim. "She was leaving to go away for Christmas with her family, it was 10:00 at night and we were trying to just get it in," Diaz explained on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Tuesday. "There was a little misunderstanding. I said I just want a little bit cut off and it went from here to here."

The leggy blonde actress -- who wore a Stella McCartney skirt -- said "it was one of those moments" where she couldn't help but "burst into tears. I started crying. I felt so vulnerable. For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair . . . oh my God!"

Diaz, 39, joked that she "yelled" and "screamed" at her pal, who "felt really bad" about chopping off her long blonde locks. "She started crying. I started crying. A couple other people started crying. I ended up writing her a few e-mails over the next few days assuring her I was OK."

The single actress also revealed she's "so looking forward" to turning 40 this August. "I love getting older," Diaz explained. "I love having wisdom, learning about myself and knowing myself better. I used to ask my grandparents all the things I wanted to know because they had the experience. Now kids just Google! It's making grandparents obsolete."


RIP her beauty.

Billboard 200 Sales: Jack White #1, The Wanted & Others Debut



Jack White's first solo album, Blunderbuss, debuts at #1 this week in both the U.S. and the U.K. This marks the fourth time that the first solo album by a prominent member of a group or duo has reached #1 in both countries. Blunderbuss follows George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, George Michael's Faith and Beyonce's Dangerously In Love. All three of those artists had had "transatlantic #1" albums with their famous groups (the Beatles, Wham! and Destiny's Child, respectively) prior to their solo debuts. White nearly did too, but the White Stripes' 2007 album Icky Thump, which hit #1 in the U.K., peaked at #2 in the U.S.

Chloe Sevigny talks about earning more money than men

I still think it’s a problem if a woman earns more than a man,’ Chloe Sevigny says in a new interview.


The actress, appearing next in new TV series Hit and Miss, opens up on topics ranging from why she’s still single to the downsides of therapy in the June issue of Psychologies magazine.

My friends are always telling me I’m intimidating,’ she says when asked why her relationships don’t seem to work out.

‘My dates are probably not being themselves on the date—they’re trying to be cool. And I think it's still a problem if a woman earns more than a man. I try to pay for half of dinner and a guy will behave as if I'm trying to prove I have more money than him.

"They've been seeing each other since the beginning of the year," a source tells the tabloid, adding that Grande even attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games with her man, but didn't walk down the red carpet because "they've been trying to keep it low-profile."

Hutcherson previously dated Vanessa Hudgens.

Has Fox just created ONTD's new favorite show?


“Four celebrities. Blind auditions. Spinning chairs. But it’s not what you think…”

That’s how Fox is describing its latest reality effort, The Choice, a new dating series hosted by So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley. Much like American Idol rival The Voice on NBC, the Fox series will feature a blind audition concept with some of the world’s most eligible –but not yet named — celebrities competing among of group of singles that they can’t see.
The series is set to debut Thursday, June 7 at 9 p.m.

The series, which relies on the love is blind concept, will be filmed in front of a live audience. Each episode will feature four bachelors -- and in some cases, bachelorettes -- seated in rotating chairs, with their backs turned to the single hopeful. The Choice will include a ‘blind round,’ in which each celebrity can only use his suitors’ voice to make the decision. If and when the celebrity bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his “love handle,” causing the seat to spin around to face his potential mate.

"I've wanted to do a dating a show, and I think there’s a whole in the market. There hasn’t been a big one since The Bachelor, and there hasn’t been a studio-based success since, my God, The Dating Game 40 years ago," Fox's alternative entertainment president Mike Darnell tells The Hollywood Reporter, noting that the genre's relatability is its appeal.

Once the three potential mates have been chosen for each of the bachelors, the teams will enter the “speed choice” round, where each woman has merely seconds to convince her leading man that she’s the one. Ultimately, they will have to make the “choice,” as the show’s title suggests.

When asked about the series' similarities to the NBC singing competition show format, Darnell suggested employing spinning chairs was the best way to approach the genre. "I had three choices," he says. "Choice one: do a wall like they used to do on Dating Game. Choice two: blind fold them, which would look ridiculous. Or choice three, go modern and do a chair that turns."

The series hails from A. Smith & Co. Productions (Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares), with Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Scott St. John (Deal or No Deal) attached as executive producers.

Real Housewife of Vancouver: "Call me Cruella de Vil"

Claman, 50, grew up on a ranch in Merritt, B.C., which supplied meat to McDonald's in the 1960s and '70s. Her father, who attended St. George's and enjoyed a privileged West Side upbringing, wanted to escape urban life. "Merritt was a beautiful, wild place, and I was a bit of a wild child, but I still grew up understanding the finer things in life." She started collecting teacups as a young girl and today has more than 2,000, her favourite being a set of Pepto-Bismol-pink cups from Limoges, France.

Dressed in a Balmain jacket and Prada dress, Claman is a walking poster child for her The Glass House designer clothing store in Ambleside. (Daughter Mia, 25, also recently launched a clothing line, M.I.A. by Claman Couture) Unlike her Housewives co-stars, one of whom "makes Betty Ford look like Disneyland," Claman insists she's had no plastic surgery. "Even my hair is real. It's just not mine.

Shadbolt, Dalí, and Chagall inform Claman's impressive collection of artwork, which she inherited from her paternal grandmother, but she prefers to collect contemporary work by Vancouverites Bobbie Burgers and Derek Root. "I buy whatever speaks to me," she says, "like these paintings by Mimi Matte. My home could look like a duty free shop on acid for all I care."

The zebra hide is a trophy from a South African safari her second husband Eran Friedlander took many years ago. "It's part of what I call his ‘ex life.' He had all these hides in storage, so one day I just grabbed them and transformed them into furniture and décor." Boz the bobcat, upon which Claman is seated, is just one the many furs she's collected. "Call me Cruella de Vil. I love them!"

ABC Orders ‘Big Brother’-Style Competition Reality Series For Summer

Described as an interactive real-life and real-time reality competition, Glass House features 14 contestants living and competing for a quarter million dollars in a wired, state-of-the-art house, playing against each other as well as for the viewers’ online votes that will help determine which contestants are sent home and also which eliminated players will earn the chance to return.

Also like Big Brother, Glass House will have an online component as several times a week viewers can watch a live online feed of the players. In this case, the audience can vote and decide everything from what players wear and eat to the games they play, even where they sleep. Viewers will also have the chance to give their favorite contestants feedback on their game from outside the house.

Giants QB Manning getting 'SNL' playbook

The Giants and their fans have studied every move Eli Manning has made the past eight years, but no one will ever have seen him the way he’ll present himself this weekend, when he is the host of “Saturday Night Live.’’

“I think that’s the good thing about 'Saturday Night Live' is you can kind of come in and maybe express a different side that people don’t see and maybe that’s not you at all times,’’ Manning said Wednesday during a conference call. “But for this night you can kind of let loose."

Manning letting loose is not a sight many have witnessed but he’ll leave his comfort zone and enter uncharted territory with this gig. He spent Monday and Tuesday meeting cast members and writers at the NBC studios and kicked around some ideas, but the heavy lifting is still to come, when scripts are finalized and he starts intensive rehearsals.

Frances Bean Cobain Has Controlled Kurt Cobain's Likeness Since 2010

Courtney Love no longer in charge of publicity rights


By Evan Minsker on May 2, 2012 at 07:28 p.m.



Well this is interesting: The Fix has unearthed some documents that reveal that Courtney Love hasn't controlled Kurt Cobain's image since 2010. Apparently, 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain is in charge of the publicity rights to her father's likeness, name, and appearance.


Love stepped down as Acting Manager of End of Music LLC, the business behind Cobain's publicity rights, after receiving a $2.75 million loan from Frances's trust fund. The Fix's report also says that Love has no control over Cobain's or Nirvana's music, which is controlled by Primary Wave CEO Larry Mestel. When Love repays Frances the trust fund money, she can regain control of the publicity rights.


While Love was in charge of Kurt's likeness in 2009, his avatar appeared in Guitar Hero 5 singing Bon Jovi and Bush songs. Although she loudly claimed she'd sue, the people behind the game made it clear that Love's signature made it perfectly legal.

Also talking about how she moved from her small town to New York City and then Europe to model before starting her acting career, Krysten certainly seemed stoked about her sit down with Letterman, as she tweeted at the end of the appearance, "Just left Letterman!!!

Kerry Washington on Scandal's Dark Twist: I Was Like, 'Ohh, That's the Kind of Show We're Doing!'

Talk about a crisis to manage.

ABC’s Scandal (Thursdays, 10/9c) started as what seemed to be a somewhat rote yet juicy Shonda Rhimes drama about a fixer and her elite team of helpers. Sure, it had the element of a White House aide alleging an affair with the president, but that read like an easy-access riff on the Lewinsky scandal, just the sort of noisy wrinkle to lure lookie-loos to a new series.

Amanda Tanner, however, ended up with bigger problems than a stained dress.

In the wake of the dark turn that capped last week’s episode of the ABC freshman, TVLine hopped on the phone with series front woman Kerry Washington — on the eve of her visit to the White House Correspondents Dinner, natch — to talk about the truly scandalous saga ahead, how the Tanner case will affect Olivia Pope’s “bond” with POTUS and the rather polarizing nature of that very romance.


TVLINE | Would you agree that with last week’s episode and the Amanda Tanner abduction, the show hit a turning point?


I think so. It’s funny, I was talking with Katie Lowes (who plays Quinn) the other night and we were remembering that’s how we felt when we read it – like, “Ohhh… that’s the kind of show we’re doing.” [Laughs] Week after week we’d get a script and go, “Oh… my… goodness. This is unbelievable.” And the next week we’d go, “Last week was nothing – this is unbelievable.” The stakes keep getting higher and higher.
